10 years ago Break­fast ben­e­fits for North School

students Au­gust 14, 2002 Toko­roa North School students got go­ing with break­fast and an early morn­ing fit­ness class last week as a part of a New Zealand Nu­tri­tion Foun­da­tion cam­paign.

About 150 year 3 and 4 students took part in the ‘‘ Get Go­ing with Break­fast’’ pro­gramme and feasted on An­chor Milk, Just Juice, Qual­ity Bak­ers’ Na­ture’s Fresh bread, Bonita Banani­tos and Weet-Bix to help start their day.

They also took part in aer­o­bics with Sport Waikato co- or­di­na­tor Heather Ry­don and had dis­cus­sions with community health nurse He­len Stock­man about the ben­e­fits of eat­ing a healthy break­fast.

North School’s Aspel co- or­di­na­tor Raewyn Thorne said the school had taken the pro- gramme one step fur­ther than break­fast and students were fo­cussing on healthy food for break­fast, lunch and din­ner as well as keep­ing food di­aries.

She said the pro­gramme was about pro- mot­ing the ben­e­fits of start­ing the day with a healthy break­fast and teach­ing students the im­pact of healthy eat­ing on their ed­u­ca­tion. 25 years ago Soc­cer side on the brink July 21, 1987 Toko­roa could be third division-bound af­ter its fail­ure to beat Cen­tral in a North­ern League soc­cer clash last week­end.

De­spite the fact that the Strath­more Park side has lost just once in seven out­ings – and that’s bet­ter than many of the top teams in the league – it fell back into the rel­e­ga­tion zone last week­end.

Ngongo­taha scored a sur­prise 2- nil win at Waikato Uni­col, and its three-point boost put it two clear of Toko­roa.

Eden and Toko­roa both drew, and Toko­roa main­tained its nar­row lead over the bot­tom­placed Auck­lan­ders.

The ma­jor con­cern for Toko­roa is its abys- mal re­cent record in front of goal.

Strik­ers Mike Fitzger­ald and Terry Blewett – who scored one good goal in Satur­day’s 1-1 draw with Cen­tral – looked light- weight against a com­pe­tent but not clever Cen­tral de­fence.

Toko­roa’s sev­en­week run in­cluded four draws and two wins – but it has only scored twice in a game on one oc­ca­sion – and in this very close league, that’s not enough.

50 years ago No pub­li­ca­tion if in­stal­ments paid

June 28, 1962 The Mata­mata County Coun­cil had no ob­jec­tion to re­ceiv­ing pay­ment of rates by in­stal­ments, said the Toko­roa Rid­ing mem­ber, Mr H J Spear, yes­ter­day.

If sat­is­fac­tory ar­range­ments were made to pay out­stand­ing rates in this fash­ion, he felt these peo­ple would not have their names pub­lished.

IM­POR­TANT MEAL: Sa­man­tha Grib­ble, 7, Sarah Flutey, 8, and Cindy Nguyen, 8, get go­ing with break­fast at Toko­roa North School last week.
