Sentenced: Wi Derek Huata in Napier
Putting forward a mitigating argu-
ment that six-year-old pupils had
been so disruptive that he had to use
physical force was a dangerous
suggestion, a judge told a Hastings
teacher being sentenced for
assaulting his pupils.
Wi Derek Huata, 53, a teacher at
Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Ngati
Kahungunu Ki Heretaunga, was
sentenced in Napier District Court
last week to 300 hours community
service after being found guilty by a
jury of assaulting seven children in
2008. The children were aged six and
Huata s lawyer, Roger Phillip, said
Huata had touched children only at
times of disruption in the classroom
for the purpose of control. The dis-
ruptive behaviour had been a miti-
gating factor. Huata had no previous
convictions and was well regarded by
his whanau, iwi and community.
The Teachers Council would now
do its own investigation as to
whether Huata could retain his prac-
tising certificate, he said.
Judge Tony Adeane said Huata
had adopted the tactic of pulling
children around by the ear in order
to compel their compliance to
Schoolteachers, parents and
others have a duty to behave in
accordance with Section 59 of the
Crimes Act . . . This does not allow
for an argument that violence
towards children is justified by the
fact they may have been disruptive.
Judge Adeane said Huata had
denied the offending until the bitter
end , which meant the children were
compelled to give evidence to the
Huata, whose practising certificate
expires in February, was suspended
from teaching at the school when the
allegations were revealed.
Huata is a cousin of Wi Huata, the
husband of former ACT MP Donna
DIY weekend of fun
How great thou Art, Deco: Dayna Howell showing all
the glitz and glam of a long-gone era.
With the popular Deco Decanted Weekend being
moved to mid September to coincide with the
Rugby World Cup event, a group of deco
enthusiasts didn t want to miss out on their
annual winter celebrations, so they ve organised a
DIY Deco Weekend in mid July.
Napier Art Deco ambassador Bertie and the
lovely Penelope have co-ordinated the do it your-
self weekend -- all you have to do is have fun, furs
The DIY Deco Weekend is not about hammers
or sewing machines, Bertie says.
We supply the basics of the Deco events --
music, venue and bar -- and you join in, buy your
own food and drink and enjoy the fun. It won t cost
a fortune either. Just $50 per person gives you
entry to all the weekend events, except Saturday
night where you choose between Mooch at the
MED and the Saturday Night Hop.
The three-day DIY Art Deco Weekend kicks off
at 6.30pm on the Friday with Flaunt yer Fur at
the MED Bar. Here you can get yourself a drink
and listen to the stories of where those wonderful
furs (and coats, suits, dresses etc) came from.
Bring your stories too and show and tell . Music
from Robert Cross.
Later, at 8pm, you can re-live the gripping
radio drama of yesteryear -- The Steam Radio
Show -- as we re-enact the classic radio serial.
Gosh, you may even get a part! Bertie says.
Other events include Saturday afternoon at the
Art Deco Trust s Fire Station Flicks where
Charlie Chaplin and other silent stars strut their
stuff at 2.30pm. Later, at 4pm, it s Play up and
Play the Game by the fireside at the GMK Bar.
Remember all those great parlour games you
played at home on winter evenings? Come and
enjoy them again.
To end the fun weekend, get along on Sunday at
6pm to the Toodle Pip Toe Tap at the Cosmopoli-
tan Club. As all good things must come to an end,
you can give them a rip roaring send off with the
lads from the Jazz Club. Lots of talent on show
including a hot band from Wellington.
For more information phone 835 0022 or visit
artdeconapier.com and book online.

gramme for women who have had

dale Lifestyle Village in Taradale.
