Parents and teens wanted for study
Auckland University is looking for
volunteers to take part in free
parenting programmes as part of
a research project.
Joanna Chu, a doctoral student
from the Triple P-Positive
Parenting Research Group, based
in the university s education fac-
ulty, is running the year-long
study which will compare the
effectiveness of two programmes.
Miss Chu is looking for 250 12
to 14-year-olds and their parents
to take part.
Topics covered during the pro-
gramme include raising confident
and competent teenagers and how
to help teenagers connect to their
schools, their peers and society.
The parents and their teenagers
will be divided into three groups.
One group will complete the
Teen Triple P Seminar Series, a
series of parenting seminars, the
second group will complete the
more intensive Group Teen Triple
programme and the final will act
as a control group.
The families will need to com-
plete a series of assessments and
questionnaires and those involved
in the control group will have an
opportunity to complete one of the
Triple P parenting programmes
for free at a later date.

Pohutukawa should be blooming in
summer along a prominent urban road
to the beach.
Almost two decades after the idea
was first mooted Pt Chevalier Rd is
now fringed by the native trees, which
stretch the length of the street.
While half of the thoroughfare was
planted in the late 1990s it is only in
the last week that the final 16 trees
have been set out.
Eventually we ll have ourselves an
avenue, Albert Eden Local Board
member Graeme Easte says.
He helped consult the community
when the project was first envisioned
by the then Auckland City Council in
The project initially cost the West-
ern Bays Community Board $80,000 in
But planting the remainder of the
trees was stalled for several years
because of complications in changing
the powerlines in Pt Chevalier from an
overhead to an underground system.
It s a project Mr Easte has been
determined to see through, despite the
decade long delay.
Funding for the final 16 trees was
part of the former board s left over
finances when the supercity merge
took place last year.
It has become a legacy project for the
new Albert-Eden board.
Although $99,000 was allocated to
the incoming board to complete the
project, Mr Easte says the cost has
been significantly less.
He rounds the figure for the 16 trees
to about $85,000.
