Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS By NICOLA WILLIAMS Four-year-olds are set to start school on the right foot. Walking there safely is the first lesson given by youth education senior constable Adele White. We're reinforcing the importance of young children walking with parents because they are not ready to walk on their own,'' Ms White says. The decisions they have to make and the judgement they need doesn't really come until they are about eight years old.'' Howick Playcentre children enjoyed a visit from Ms White where they practised crossing roads with their parents. We're emphasising the importance of holding hands. It's also great to get the children used to being with a police officer because we will visit them in the classroom and continue to work on the safety messages we have started.'' During March, the Howick police and the Eastern Cour- ier are supporting the Marching On campaign in an effort to get more children walking for the many benefits it provides. I'm seeing a lot of children who don't have as much inde- pendence as they should have. If children walk to school right from the word go they are not going to know any different, it becomes a way of life,'' Ms White says. Walking helps to reduce congestion outside schools, is better for the environment, provides exercise and helps social development. Swim with Jaws shark By MATT BOWEN Go to www.eastern courier.co.nz to see Tom and Beth pitch their idea and a trailer for the 1975 classic Jaws. A giant great white shark will feast on human flesh at Maraetai Beach tomorrow night. On screen that is, on the wharf. The 1975 classic shark flick Jaws will beam across the dark sea sur- face to 100 keen rubber- clad characters bobbing about on flimsy flotation devices, like burley in the ocean''. That's how Tom Dar- low and Beth O'Brien pitch their plan on the Smirnoff Night Project Facebook page. The vodka brand set a chall- enge last year to think up truly different, extraordinary, event ideas'' and they would help bring the best four to life and screen them on television. The Auckland adver- tising agency interns came up with the idea of turning films into a total immersion experience. If people watch horror films to be frightened, they figured, why not turn the scare dial up. Two of the projects have already run. The Zombie Apocalypse invaded Wellington on February 19 and the Gig in the Middle of Nowhere was last weekend. The Paint the Town White party experiment is to come on March 19. Harbourmaster John Lee-Richards has re- served a 40m by 20m patch of ocean off Maraetai Wharf for the 8.30pm event. The TV series is due to air on FOUR in April.
