    p Minister for Food Safety Jo Goodhew with dignitaries at the opening of the Pristine Biologicals NZ Ltd plant in Dargaville

    New plant boosts local job marketDargaville has received a big economic boost as 13 new jobs are created in town with the opening of a new biotechnology plant operated by India-based Pristine Biologicals NZ Ltd.

    Pristine is working in association with Silver Fern Farms and the new plant in Mako Street has been lauded by Kaipara District Council commission chair, John Robertson.

    The company has invested considerably to open the plant here in Dargaville and we welcome and salute the fact that they are working with Silver Fern Farms to support the local area, he said as the ribbon was cut at the opening by the Minister for Food Safety, Jo Goodhew, last Monday.

    It is great to see the creation of employment.

    Silver Fern Farms is set to supply by-product to Pristine which allows the company to make vaccinations for both humans and animals. The parent company in India makes immunisations

    that are affordable, accessible and quality assured at the lowest possible prices.

    The companys New Zealand director, Dr Vijay Dasari said Dargaville was chosen once we met the team at Silver Fern Farms, led by plant manager Lance Warmington. We are extremely confident we can build a strong working relationship with them.

    New Zealands clean, green imagine is certainly a huge factor in sourcing raw material for these vaccines. The end product will be further processed in our parent companys facility in India.

    Dr Dasari says he is excited about this new venture and is committed to the town. He has ensured the plant used local contractors and services to fit out the new facility.

    Ms Goodhew, who previously worked as a nurse giving immunisations to children, said she never imagined cutting the ribbon to a company in New Zealand that would be working to protect children and animals in the future.

    This is an innovative approach in business. Primary industries in New Zealand are built on high credibility throughout the world and this partnership with Silver Fern Farms creates more jobs for the locals.

    Dargaville Business Forums Peter Boyd said having a large international company come into the area gives good signals to others to invest and it shows we have the capacity to host other big companies to do business here. It is very positive.

    A pirate adventure

    Celebrating excellence

    Cross country fun

    p The Wellsford Junior School are currently working on the topic Pirates and Princesses and the year one and two students in room 14 worked together to modify a big pirate book into a class playscript. The children had to design and make costumes for their play whilst also focussing on voice projection and use of expression. The whole process was led by student teacher Caleb Watkin on his final practicum, and they presented their play to the whole school which was a great success, said teacher Serina Wade.

    p Year 13 Dargaville High School high achiever Rachel Hansen received excellence in media studies sponsored by NorthSouth Multi Media along with excellence and merit awards in a number of other subjects and Dux Litterarum, at the senior prizegiving held on October 30. Rachel will go on to study Health Science at the University of Otago in 2016. She says this year has been challenging but enjoyable and will now focus on studying for her final exams.

    p Last Wednesday, Matakohe, Paparoa and Tinopai Schools gathered at Matarua Golf Course for their annual cross country event. With 16 races, there was plenty of enjoyment for all. A crowd of proud parents and supportive students made it a great day out. Year 1 Girls winner was Patience Jeolle from Tinopai School, 2nd was Stevie Ross Paparoa Primary, 3rd Olivia Tong Paparoa Primary

    Electric move forlittle town of lightsu by Ayla Miller

    Kaiwaka is leading by example as it becomes home to the first ChargeNet electric vehicle charging station of a planned 75 to be rolled out across the country in the next three years.

    Electric charging vehicle network company ChargeNet officially opened the station for use in the Jaques Foursquare carpark on October 30 and Foursquare owners Greg and Paula Jaques invited electric vehicle drivers to make use of it from then onwards.

    As electric vehicles become more affordable, the demand for charging stations is increasing and many popular electric vehicles have a range of only 120 kilometres.

    This has lead to a nation-wide network of Rapid DC Chargers that let any electric vehicle owner quickly recharge in 10-25 minutes. These are placed in locations whe
