Fa'anānā Efeso Collins

 

I le agaga fa’aaloalo, matou te taia le tuluvao ma fati se ala ona o le tu’ua o le malo i le afioga ia Fa'anānā Efeso Collins.

Last month, Fa'anānā was surrounded by friends and family celebrating his maiden address in Parliament, marking his entry into the House of Representatives, representing the people of South Auckland.

Fa'anānā was previously a Manukau Ward Councillor on Auckland Council from 2016 to 2022, and he was the former Chair of the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board. He was unafraid to challenge the orthodoxy, or question those in power. He was our voice on those decision making tables.

But even before he entered the world of politics, Fa'anānā was an advocate for our South Auckland communities, for Ōtara, and especially for our youth.

 

Like many from Ōtara, Fa'anānā’s parents came to Aotearoa New Zealand in search for a better future for their children. He saw how hard his parents worked to provide for their family. He saw the social injustice that built up over the decades of neo-liberalism and urbanisation, affecting our communities. He saw the inequities of our failing education and health systems. He saw how no-one believed in the worth of our youth.


 

 

Amongst the many initiatives and advocacy Fa'anānā was involved with over the years, he believed in the value of mentoring. I was privileged enough to be involved in his Dream Fonotaga programme. Māori and Pacific University students, like myself, would mentor senior High School students from across Tāmaki Makarau. We encouraged our younger peers to dream big – despite what the world may think of you, disregard what words of disempowerment have been spoke over you – we believed each and every one of those students could reach their potential.

Fa'anānā was also a proud Samoan and Tokelauan. He carried the Samoan matai title of Fa'anānā from the village of Satufia, Satupaitea, Savai'i. In his maiden speech, Fa'anānā spoke of the struggles of New Zealand born Samoans, with retention of language and culture. But that never diminished his pride in being Samoan.

Over the many years, I can confidently say thousands of lives of our youth had a seed planted in them– a seed of self-belief, nurtured by a village of supporters. These seeds are in fruition and will be for years to come – the next generation of Pacific and South Auckland leaders.

Thank you Fa'anānā for planting those seeds.

‘E momoli atu faamaisega ma faamafanafanaga i le faletua ia Vasa Fia Collins ma le nofoa alo, faapea le paia lasilasi o aiga ma ou itu taulagi uma.

‘Amuia e faanoanoa, e faamafanafanaina i latou’.

May you rest in peace – Manuia lau malaga Fa'anānā Efeso Collins

 

 

Fuimaono Atanoa Norman Taulauniu Tuiasau

 

Ua maliliu toa. Ua tagi ai nei le fatu ma le eleele. Ua talai ofu tau. Ua valaau le Atua lana auauna.

Fuimaono passed away peacefully at Mercy Hospice on 7 March 2024, aged 69. Much respected community member, campaigner, lawyer, teacher.

Born in Auckland, grew up in Onehunga, and graduated from Auckland University in 1981. Member of the Polynesian Panthers circa 1970s and achieved the rank of Minister of Information. Worked for Ministry of Justice, and Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs, and the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, circa 1990s-2000s.

Fuimaono started his teaching career with De La Salle in 2018 after having been a lawyer since 1983. He brought a wonderful range of experiences to his teaching career and was always looking for ways to engage with his students and get their best from them, constantly challenging them to reach excellence in their education. Fuimaono was a valued member of the College Religious Studies faculty and he brought both gravitas and humour to his work in that faculty and with all of the College teaching staff.

It was at this time Fuimaono was a strong supporter of the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Youth Council and ensuring De La Salle students were involved in civic life.

Fuimaono set up the Polynesian Panther Legacy Trust in 2021 and was the inaugural Chair from 2021-2023. With more than 50 years of advocacy, the Polynesian Panthers have secured their place in New Zealand history for their role in bringing to light the injustice Pacific peoples faced during the Dawn Raid era.

Fuimaono was a man of faith, who will be deeply missed by family and friends. He will be remembered by his beloved wife Philippa and their family Losefa and Lui, Jonathon, Nicholas, Bridget and Han, and treasured grandchildren.

 


 

 

Aorere College celebrates 60th Anniversary

 

The land Aorere College occupies in Tamaki Makarau Waitemata te moana is within the traditional boundaries of Tainui with Puketapapa te maunga.

In the 1950’s Papatoetoe was a growing district and roll estimates at Papatoetoe High School which opened in 1957 indicated that another school would be required within a few years. The Department of Education considered the possibility of building a second school adjacent to the Papatoetoe High school with the idea of having one school for boys and the other for girls. Because of the shortage of good female staff it was decided to continue with co-education.

In all, the Aorere College site occupies an area of over 22 acres of land, 11 acres from Mr. W.A. Slater a long standing resident of the district, a small area from Mr. W.G. Kerr and the remainder from Mr. Owen Self​ whose family has lived in Self ’s Road for many years.

Aorere College was established in 1964 to serve the community of the Mangere East and Papatoetoe West district. Today, Aorere College currently has approximately 1550 students and provides a broad learning environment with a clear focus on academic achievement. The school’s vision is to work closely with our community to grow high-achieving young men and women with the character, confidence and qualifications for future success.

Over the weekend, Aorere celebrated its 60th anniversary. It was a relaxed reunion allowing time for reconnecting, reminiscing, and revisiting the kura.

Congratulations to Aorere College and the school community on reaching this significant milestone. Best wishes for another 60 years of educating our youth and serving our community.

Proposals for More Empowered Local Boards

 

Resolution number OP/2024/22

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Member V Hausia:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)      whakarite / provide the following feedback comments on staff proposals for more empowered local boards:

i)       tuhi ā-taipitopito /note that in the last term, the Joint Governance Working Party used a formula that showed Ōtara-Papatoetoe was being underfunded. It was agreed that no local board would lose any funding during the transition. Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board was supportive of the Equitable Funding at that time as we know we have been historically underfunded and looked forward to finally being able to provide quality, fit for purpose local facilities for our people – we believed this was what equity looked like.

ii)         tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that recent officer advice on estimated budgets is that Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board is “trending similar” to last year, that is, lesser budget considered to be small variation, compared to theprevious term. The Mayor’s proposal is looking at local boards losing funding during the shorter transition period. Our neighbouring local board, Mangere-Ōtāhuhu looks to fair worse. Some other southern local boards are also now deemed to be overfunded compared to last term’s figures. It is counterintuitive to support a process labelled as equitable, yet many of the areas of high deprivation will be losing funding. This is no longer equitable.

iii)        tono / request that service asset portfolio review of local assets be prioritised for Ōtara-Papatoetoe area, to better inform major work items associated with developing a community hub in Papatoetoe and planning for Ōtara town centre precinct.

iv)        tono / request that strategic assessment and advice for council’s lease portfolio is urgently needed to better understand use of council owned assets, service needs and provision that align to changing demographics and needs.

v)         tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that the funding situation is at risk of being further exacerbated under the proposed amalgamation into “Manukau Local Board”. This new local board is the most deprived and will be losing funding. Conceivably, this new local board may have to look at closing local facilities to meet the cut funding. Our libraries and pools etc are essential for our communities who many cannot afford private providers.

vi)        tuhi ā-taipitopito / note concern about the population size estimates applied in the calculations. It is well known that there has always been an undercount at census time for communities such as South Auckland. This has affected Crown funding for public health and education. Therefore, at the local government level, there is likely to be an undercount of our communities and the combined population for Ōtara-Papatoetoe and Mangere- Ōtāhuhu estimated to be 190,000 could be more.

Representation review and local board reorganisation

 

Resolution number OP/2024/23

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Member V Hausia:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)         whakarite / provide the following feedback on matters relating to the review of representation arrangements for the current 21 local boards (noting that feedback on matters specific to this local board that are addressed under item 20 of this business meeting.):

i)           tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that there could be an option for introducing subdivisions in the adjacent local board area, Mangere-Ōtāhuhu to better represent the Ōtāhuhu residents. They would also need clarity over how that may be split. It has been suggested, we could advocate to increase the local board members to 14 for the proposed amalgamated Manukau Local Board, however this would require legislative change which is beyond the timeframes of this review.

b)         whakarite / provide following feedback on the proposal to reduce the number of local boards through a reorganisation plan noting that Governing Body has supported the development of a 15 local board model as described in this report:

i)           whakaae / agree on the need to look at efficiencies and more effective governance, we have not seen any costings around making the proposed changes, any savings being made, and whether the upheaval is necessary for unquantified gains. Going down from 21 to 15 local boards is not a significant reduction, therefore, the benefits will unlikely be great, with likely large cost of change.

ii)         a related issue is that although there maybe economies of scale to a proposed amalgamated Manukau Local Board, because of the subdivisions, it won’t diminish the constituents work elected members will still need to do for each community of interest (subdivision).

iii)        the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board does not support amalgamating with Mangere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board. Having only 2 seats in a proposed 12 seat Local Board would diminish the influence of Ōtara over local matters.

iv)        if the proposed amalgamations do go ahead with the reduced number of elected members, Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board would urge that the remuneration reflects the increased work. Ideally the work of elected members will need to be seen as full time roles. Potentially this would attract a more representative pool of candidates at election time. In the current model and scope people are discouraged from putting themselves forward for elections as people often need to keep a full-time job, as the current elected member position is paid on a part-time rate. This poses challenges with difficulty of the availability and time commitment from elected members. The proposed Manukau Local Board for instance would have approximately 190,000 people. This equates to the size of Hamilton City. The Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board does not agree with a reduction in funding nor of reduced number of elected members.

c)          tautoko / support a reorganisation plan for local boards proceeding to public consultation and note the following comments and feedback:

i)            tono / request that efforts are made to engage with and seek views of stakeholders from the Manukau Ward. Given the proposed amalgamation of Ōtara-Papatoetoe and Mangere-Ōtāhuhu Local Boards gaining views from local stakeholders and interest groups from the start is critical

ii)          tono / request that more targeted consultations are delivered, as the general online events are not always conducive for our culturally and linguistically diverse communities. There is a lot of detail and processes that local communities need to understand, therefore greater the lead in time for consultation events the better the chances for participation and engagement.

Representation project – issues specific to the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board

 

Resolution number OP/2024/24

MOVED by Chairperson AR Autagavaia, seconded by Member V Hausia:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)      tuhi ā-taipitopito / note the following feedback points with specific reference to Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

i)         even though Ōtara is overrepresented as it exceeds the threshold at 13 per cent instead of 10 (average population per member for the whole local board not more than 10 percent) the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board would advocate that the voices of Ōtara subdivision are not reduced.

ii)         Ōtara is a distinct community of interest, people are strongly affiliated through their interests, culture and local activities and family ties. It is an area of high deprivation, and limited civic engagement as people are frequently struggling to make ends meet. The local representation is a means to make room for voices, issues and concerns of the people who are typically not heard, or at risk of being overlooked.

iii)        advocate that Auckland Council not to comply with the 10 per cent rule as the board is of the opinion that proposed options of tweaking the boundaries of the Ōtara and Papatoetoe subdivisions will lead to a negative effect on communities of interest. Joining communities through a line on a map with few commonalities of interest would be of little value and not serve the interests of democratic representation.

b)      tuhi ā-taipitopito / note that the board does not favour the proposed amalgamation of Ōtara-Papatoetoe and Mangere-Ōtāhuhu Local Boards with a maximum membership of 12 seats to “Manukau Local Board”:

i)         further, that the proposed amalgamation of Ōtara-Papatoetoe and Mangere- Ōtāhuhu Local Boards with a maximum membership of 12 seats to “Manukau Local Board”, it is likely our Ōtara community will advocate to ensure their voice is not diminished and would want to keep the Ōtara subdivision.

ii)         the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board does not favour the amalgamation also for the reasons noted under a).
