But a word of cau- tion: you re advised to get up to speed on build- ing rules first, to help ensure the work you do is safe and, if necessary, pre-approved. Auckland Council Building Control man- ager Ian McCormick says before people get their tools out they should check if the DIY work they are planning needs either building or resource consent and what relevant legislation requires. Over the summer months many Auck- landers like to do DIY around their homes; it s part of our culture. We urge people to take steps to ensure their work is safe and any effects on others and the environ- ment are addressed. Ensuring any DIY work is compliant will also help property owners ensure they don t compromise future prop- erty sales. Property owners with trees will also need to find out if they need resource consent to trim or chop down trees. Mr McCormick says people can visit council s website or contact its call centre on 301 0101 for more information on what kind of work requi- res consent. A lot of work requires consent under legis- lation, district or region- al plans so we do encour- age people to check with us. Even if consent is not required DIY work must still comply with the Building Act, the build- ing code and other rel- evant legislation. Is your child ready for school? Stepping Ahead: Pre-schoolers learn how to hold a pencil properly and write their name. Building confidence: Children have fun learning as they prepare to go to school. If you have a child aged three or four years old, and want to introduce them to learning or get them ready for starting school, then the Stepping Ahead Starter Class is right for you. There is nothing else in Auckland quite like it. Stepping Ahead offers three and four-year-old children the opportunity to experience a unique, structured programme that turns learning into FUN so that before you know it they have mastered the beginning strands of phonics, read- ing, writing and maths. Many children are overwhelmed when they arrive into the school environment. Some chil- dren have trouble adapt- ing to the structure, learning tools and inde- pendence required for a successful, smooth tran- sition to school, but just one hour a week is all that is needed to give your child the skills required to make start- ing school easier. Programme designers Laura and Glenda are qualified primary school teachers and have been running the Stepping Ahead Starter Class suc- cessfully for over 15 years. Sessions are kept small with a maximum of just eight children. Each class is based on a different letter and includes mat time, writ- ing time, story time, activity sheets, a craft activity and more. For many children this is the highlight of their week. The teachers offer individualised learning, tapered for each child s level. They provide lots of positive encourage- ment and with a skilled and sensitive manner, they enable each child to flourish and be proud of their success. All this is with the aim to increase confidence and indepen- dence and give children the tools they need to enjoy a smooth, stress- free transition to the school environment. For just $25 a class the Stepping Ahead Starter Class is an invaluable way to prepare your child for school in a fun, encouraging, educational environment. Stepping Ahead Star- ter Classes are held at a convenient central Taka- puna location and run on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at various times to suit you. The first lesson is FREE so come along and try out a class in action. For more information or to take advantage of this special offer, call Glenda on 415 5534, or Laura on 478 8361 or 027 283 7799.
