By JESS ETHERIDGE Making something glamorous from gar- bage seems to be an area where North Shore students excel. Auckland s annual schools Trash To Fashion awards will be held this September and 10 Shore schools will be taking part. It s the second year the contest has been open to all schools; pre- viously it was run by the former Waitakere City Council in West Auckland. Last year 48 per cent of garments entered into the finals were from North Shore, with project leader Leanne Roche expecting that figure to rise this year. Albany Senior School is among those with garments in the final. About 134 other teams from across Auckland will gather at the Corban Estate Arts Centre in Henderson, West Auckland, for a weekend rehearsal schedule before the big night on September 1. Visit st2f.co.nz for event information. Awards finalists named A green fashionista, a school with a Dr Seuss- inspired garden and an Auckland weedbuster tracking pest plants on Google Earth are conten- ders for sustainability awards. Albany Senior High School Isabelle Verney is among the finalists. The 2012 Auckland Council Sustainable Environment Awards in the Auckland Town Hall on Monday acknowledge finalists in four categor- ies -- individual, com- munity, school and youth -- for their work on sus- tainable initiatives. Environment and Sus- tainability Forum chair- man Wayne Walker, who will speak at the awards along with Mayor Len Brown, says the awards recognise and celebrate the work being done by the region s environ- mental champions. The purpose of these awards is to acknowl- edge the fantastic and diverse projects happen- ing in all corners of Auckland," he says. "Through the Auck- land Plan, we have a vis- ion to make Auckland the world s most liveable city and these are the people leading the way to that vision. Mr Walker, who was a judge in the schools category, says a review of entries led to a decision by judges in all categories to recognise all 35 entries this year. While all entries are finalists, the nominees will find out at the awards event if they are category winners. A supreme winner -- will also be announced. Funds raised for Yo-Arna Charity walk: Helping fundraise for lupus sufferer Yo-Arna Searell and the North Shore Renal Unit are, front from left: Meki Meki and Chris Taatu, back: Ashley Vincent, Liz Harman, Leileene Tuitupou, Yo-Arna Searell, Karen Cleasby and Rose Clark. A charity walk and head shave at Whangaparaoa raised more than $2700 for Yo-Arna Searell, 18, of Orewa and the North Shore Renal Unit. Seventy walkers did the 5km walk organised by Whangaparaoa Curves to help pay for Yo-Arna s wig after she needed chemotherapy for lupus, an autoimmune disease. Eight people also took up the head shaving challenge, done at Hair Illusions in Whanga- paraoa. Curves Whangaparaoa owners Jan Searell -- Yo- Arna s mum -- and Karen Cleasby thank all those who supported the event. Coast open door to late challenge Hibiscus Coast have struck some speed wobbles as they chase the the Lotto NRFL Men s Division 2 soccer title. Having had a comfortable lead, Coast still lead the competition but less comfortably after their second straight 4-3 loss. The latest one, against Mangere at Stanmore Bay, came despite a two goal lead in the first five minutes. Dan Cyra scored his eighth goal of the year inside the opening 60 seconds and the lead doubled four minutes later when captain Ben Jones struck. But Mangere struck back and took a 4-2 lead by half time. Trent Mayes pulled one back for Hibiscus, his 17th of the year, in the second half. But the loss meant Coast s lead was whittled to five points as second-placed North Shore beat Fencibles 3-1 at the weekend. Shore have a game in hand over Hibiscus Coast and the title could be decided when the sides clash at Stanmore Bay on August 4. The first and second placed teams in the league will be pro- moted to division one for next year, replacing two sides that will be relegated from that division. This Saturday, Hibiscus Coast is away to Onehunga Mangere at Mangere Domain. Kick off is at 2.45pm.
