Bollards represent gold prospectors
Fun way to be reminded of
history in the region
Attention already: Three bollards installed in Lawrence by the Tuapeka Lawrence Community Company. From left, Helen
Munro, Gabriel Read, and Black Peter.
Lawrence's first discoverers of
gold have been immortalised in a
new art installation.
The Tuapeka Lawrence Com-
munity Company installed three
bollards depicting Gabriel Read,
Black Peter and Helen Munro at
the foot of the zigzag in Lawrence.
Chairman Peter Cummings said
the community art installation
was a playful depiction of the first
discoverers of gold in the Tuapeka
Creative Communities New Zea-
land helped fund the bollards and
they were created by local woman
Kelly Aitken, who is working in
''The bollards are the first of a
series for Lawrence to help create
points of interest and also to
highlight some of the early
founders of the community and
tell their story,'' Mr Cummings
''Already there is a lot of interest
in the bollards and people can
often be seen getting their photos
taken with them.''
A description panel in front of the
bollards briefly describes the lives
of those represented.
Gabriel Read is recognised as the
man who started the first full-
scale gold rush in New Zealand in
September 1862, which resulted in
more than 11,472 people being in
the Tuapeka goldfields by July
Black Peter, who was from
Bombay, arrived in New Zealand
in 1853 and worked as a drover,
He fossicked for gold in the area
without much success himself but
indicated to others where gold
might be found.
Helen Munro, the wife of George
Munro, was one of the first
permanent settlers in the
Tuapeka area, arriving from
Scotland in 1857.
She found gold in what is now
known as Munro's Gully.
The Tuapeka Lawrence Com-
munity Company will continue
the bollards project, with the next
two possibly about John J Woods,
who wrote the music for the New
Zealand national anthem, and
John Stenhouse, the school head-
master from 1864 to 1909.

For many teenagers the
most stressful time of the

exams are just around the
Sport and exercise can play a
valuable role around exam time and
in education in general.
John Kirwan advocates regular
exercise in his battle with
depression and there is plenty of
evidence to show that sport in
education and exercise mixed with
revision add the learning process.
Passing exams is not easy for
everyone but the reality is if you

In Britain at the moment if schools
aren't achieving academically some

More physical education is
scheduled and the result is higher
Sport New Zealand is following this
lead with a ''Sport & Education
Project 2013 -- 2015''.
Another study, ''Exercise helps
students in the classroom'' shows
that exercise and sport at a young
age adds brain development and
results in higher academic results.
With one week of the school holidays
remaining, how can exercise help
the ''SWOT'' process?
''Brainbreaks'' are a great way to
keep the blood flowing and the brain
alert during revision.

Skipping or just tossing a ball
around will do it.
Guys may want to pump some
weights to get the guns looking good
