Orientation Events – Week 1

February 27

Cultural Clubs Day in the Quad

Sports Clubs Day in the Quad

From 10am to 3pm, the Sports Clubs will attempt to cajole you into flailing your limbs in
whichever code they represent, be it rugger, Goju Ryu Karate, or debating.

February 29

Pipitea Festival

Old Government Buildings, 10am onwards – Free
To ensure Law and Commerce students don’t miss out, the VUWSA-affiliated sporting and
cultural clubs stalls move their stalls to Pipitea campus, accompanied by many intriguing
side-shows. Last year performers such as Wing and The Clogghoppers graced the stage, and
sponsors fought over your souls and wallets with carnival rides and attractions. ASB will bring
an inflatable tennis speed serve, the German International Exchange Program will host a football-shooting wall, and the Department of Building and Housing will have apple bobbing. V will give away a performance car(!) and Arise Church will be walking around in sumo suits handing out free candyfloss. There will also be a licensed area for, ahem, refreshments.

About the Author ()

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
