It's an invisible solution called Selec- taDNA. It looks like glue with black dots in it but it has the ability to link the property to its owner. The Bank of New Zea- land has teamed up with the Education Ministry and the police in oper- ation SNAP -- Serial Number Action Partner- ship -- to donate 73 Selec- taDNA kits to south Auckland schools. It's part of a push to make south Auckland communities safer and was launched at Papa- kura High School. The solution can be applied to almost any- thing, including com- puters, musical instru- ments, trophies and audio equipment. It's then registered to the individual or organ- isation and if the item is stolen police can identify the owner through testing or through micro- dots visible under a microscope. SelectaDNA director Graham Zuill says even if the dots are scratched off all that's needed is a piece the size of a pin- head to trace the item back to its registered owner. Papakura High princi- pal Peter Heron has welcomed the new kit which he likens to the 90-plus security cameras the school installed over summer and which have helped with issues like bullying. It's not the serious- ness of the punishment that worries the chil- dren, it's the getting caught. Go to www.eastern courier.co.nz to find out more about SelectaDNA. Keen recycling kids earn trees to plant Putting down roots: Bucklands Beach Ohui-a-rangi Playcentre parent-educator Stacey Faire plants native corokia trees with Mackenzie Grant and Lily West, both 4. Photo: FIONA GOODALL By STEPHANIE FAWCETT Eco-friendly preschoolers have been rewarded for their recycling efforts. Bucklands Beach Ohui-a-rangi Playcentre has received six native corokia trees in the Paper4trees programme. Ohui-a-rangi parent- educator Leah Hirsch- feld says the playcentre has been in the scheme for a about five years. We've received differ- ent trees every year and we've put some of them up on the embankment behind the centre.'' Fellow parent-educat- or Stacey Faire says the trees will be part of the centre's plans to build a natural playground. We wanted a natural playground on the bank area rather than a con- structed one,'' she says. It's about enhancing the natural wilderness of our environment and creating some really neat spaces for the children to let their imaginations run wild.'' The Environmental Education for Resource Sustainability Trust started the Paper4trees programme in 2001 and it is now used in schools throughout the country. Schools get one native tree or shrub for every 2000 litres of paper and cardboard they recycle. Paper and cardboard make up around 75 percent of school waste and every tonne recycled saves about 13.5 trees. Visit www.eerst.co.nz/ paper-4-trees for more information on the Paper4trees scheme.
