Taste of Parliament
Future leader: Angela Curtis will be stepping into the shoes of MP for Auckland Central
Nikki Kaye for Youth Parliament this month.
An opportunity to peek behind the
curtain of Parliament has been given
to two central Auckland teenagers.
This month Angela Curtis and Hart
Reynolds will be heading to Welling-
ton to join 16 to 18-year-olds from
around the country in forming the
2013 Youth Parliament.
Every year each MP chooses a
youth representative to sit in their
seat and debate legislation, sit on sel-
ect committees and ask Cabinet
Angela says when she heard about
youth parliament she knew it was
something she wanted to be a part of.
It is almost surreal to have the
opportunity to be the voice for my
generation -- after all, we are affected
by every decision made by the Gov-
ernment, the Marist College pupil
I want to be involved in Youth Par-
liament so I can be the voice for the
stereotyped, under-privileged and
struggling youth that go unacknowl-
edged in our society today.
The 16-year-old says the experience
will also help her understand more
about why certain decisions are made.
I also want to help others in my
community understand the Parliamen-
tary process and encourage greater
participation by my peers.
MP for Auckland Central Nikki
Kaye says Angela will be an outstand-
She understands important public
policy issues and has a strong social
She is engaged with her local com-
munity and believes politics is an
important tool for change.
As well as the 121 MPs being repres-
ented by a youth there are 20 teens
forming the Youth Press Gallery.
Hart Reynolds, 17, from Western
Springs College will be representing
Labour list MP based in Auckland cen-
tral Jacinda Ardern.
Kids can enter art contest
Auckland primary school students are
being encouraged to get creative to
support the elderly as part of a special
The competition is run by Indian-
based charity Amma on behalf of
Shanti Niwas charitable trust which
provides counselling services and
social events for the elderly.
Entry to the art competition costs
$5 with all money raised going to
Shanti Niwas. Children aged 5 to 11
are invited to draw something they
love that connects them with their
grandparents, in keeping with the
competition s theme of Just like Nan.
Amma president Aniruddh Gandhi
says it is important to support older
people because they often have it
tough in New Zealand.
Back in India the elderly are very
well connected with family, whereas
here they often get isolated. So we
thought it would be nice to try to con-
nect the generations, Mr Gandhi says.
The competition will wrap up with a
prize giving and family fun day at
Shanti Niwas hall in Onehunga on
An art exhibition, face painting and
food stalls will be on offer plus a
chance to turn entrants artwork into
calendars or greeting cards.
There will also be cash prizes for the
top three places along with consolation
vouchers and other spot prizes.
