Car wash: Brendon Carr is fundraising to attend his first Scout jamboree by doing household chores. By MICHELE ONG OUR SCHOOLS Kieran McNair is better able to manage his diabetes with a grant he received from the Mazda Foundation. The Whangaparoa Primary School student received $4000 for an insulin pump. It will give Kieran better con- trol of his sugar level and greater flexibility when it comes to food consumption. We were at the supermar- ket the other day and Kieran asked if he could have a gin- gerbread man. He then paused and said: Oh no, I already had my afternoon tea , his mum says. I reminded him he has his pump now, so it s okay, he can have it. As he unwrapped it in the car he had tears in his eyes, because it was the first time in three years since he was allowed this spontan- iety. She says it made her realise just how much self- discipline Kieran had shown during the past three years in controlling his diabetes since being diagnosed in 2007. Kieran s fund forms part of the $50,000 the foundation has given to more than 17 individuals and groups nationwide. We got to know of the funding through the Starship hospital diabetes team, and they encouraged us to apply for it, Mrs McNair says. She says except for syringes and insulins, the pumps are not generally funded under the health sys- tem, except to needy families. Mrs McNair is grateful for the support the family has received. The Mazda Foundation provides assistance to environmental, educational, skills development, cultural and community projects. Applications can be made three times a year. The next closes on March 31. Visit mazdafoundation. org.nz for information. A Whangaparaoa College boy is fundraising to attend his first Scout jamboree by helping with household chores around the Whangaparaoa area. I m a hard worker and available for round-the-house jobs like cleaning, vacuum- ing, grocery shopping, mow- ing lawns and washing cars, 12-year-old Brendon Carr says. I ve practised from doing chores at home. He really wants to attend the jamboree and went through a few fundraising ideas with his mum and teacher before deciding. It costs $1000 to attend the jamboree, and the Scout group has been fundraising for two years. Brendon has another $200 to go. Instead of putting a price on each chore, we ve decided to let people make the decision how much they d like to pay me, he says. Brendon hopes to raise enough money in time for the 19th Scout Jamboree at Mys- tery Creek in Hamilton from December 29 to January 6. Contact Brendon Carr on (09) 424-8386. Rodney College wants to buy second-hand farming equipment for its skills-based farming course next year. The course is offered to year 12 students, and will work in conjunction with Gateway Programme and the Agriculture ITO. Students will be taught industry skills such as the correct use and maintenance of all-terrain vehicles like quads, tractors, fencing, stock handling and chainsaw skills. We need a lot of equip- ment and have a very limited budget for this course, Rod- ney College teacher Johan van Deventer says. Contact him on (09) 423-6032 or email johan. vandeventer@rodneycollege. school.nz if you can help.
