The countdown to 2011 will be marked by two coordinated pyrotechnic displays -- one from Sky City's Sky Tower and another from two barges anchored on the Waitemata Harbour. The public will be able to view the displays from Auckland's CBD and around the city. Vantage points include: • Mt Eden • Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, Orakei • Mt Victoria, Devonport Gates at these vantage points will be closed to vehicles but people can walk to see the fireworks. People celebrating New Year's Eve in Auckland are reminded to consider: • taking public transport • designating a sober driver and using parking facilities • following liquor bans at public spaces, parks and reserves • road closures around the city, especially in the CBD • complying with any requests from Police, harbour or city of cials, to ensure public safety The Harbourmaster will be responsible for controlling the movement of boats on the harbour during the displays and will be enforcing a restriction around the two fireworks barges.

There was plenty of sun, sand and silly games to be had at Tar- get Road School's end of year beach picnic at Mil- ford Reserve. Junior pupils enjoyed sack races, running under a large parachute, playing frisbee, making sand sculptures and tussling over a lolly scramble. The weather was lovely, it was such a won- derful day,'' teacher Kathy Boxen says. About 155 children and a large group of parents also enjoyed a picnic on the reserve, and were well worn out by the end of the day. The picnic is an annual event for the school's years zero to two pupils, following a study on co-operative games where children learn how to share and play fairly together, Mrs Boxen says. The school's older pupils didn't miss out, with the middle syndi- cate attending a camp and senior pupils having an outdoor activities day and show.
