Students from year 9 to 13 competed in various events and competitions throughout the day. However, Joe’s camera-catching jump wasn’t enough to leap him into the placings. •More photos, page 6 PHOTO: ANDREW THOMSON • By Caitlin Miles THREE SCHOOLS which have been campaigning for lower speed limits outside their gates are unlikely to get them. St Anne’s Catholic, Te Waka Unua and Linwood Avenue schools all want the speed reduced from 50km/h to 40km/h during school pick-up and drop-off times along with flashing speed reduction signs. A report to the city council said the schools don’t need the speed reduced because of various reasons. St Anne’s is unlikely to have speed reduced because of the Woolston Village project, which could see speed reduced to 30km/h down part of Ferry Rd, which includes the school. However, the plan has been met with public criticism and has been taken back to the city council. St Anne’s principal Dallas Wichman said it was disappointing, since changes to the Woolston Village project may include not lowering the speed. “It could take three to five years if ever for something to be done and that’s a lot of time in the meantime for someone to get run over,” he said. The report comes as a 1759-signature petition will be presented to the city council on Thursday, asking for its support in lowering the speed limits. Petition organiser, Port Hills list MP Nuk Korako, said if speed isn’t reduced outside the schools, it would be “really disappointing” because the community wanted it. “People are very passionate about this. This is the community speaking,” Mr Korako said. The current budget for the city council’s school speed zones priority list is $140,000 – which allows for three schools to have speed reduced every year. •Turn to page 5 ReLove Quality Preloved Clothing HIGHLY RATED Come and discover treasures from our amazing range at super low prices Mens • Womens • Childrens • Babies Hours Monday to Friday Open 10am to 4.30pm Saturday 10am to 2pm 2 Leacroft Street Bishopdale, Christchurch (off Harewood Road) Find us on Facebook RELOvE CLOTHInG AMAZING ISLAND MIRACLE OIL DILO OIL – The Remarkable Skin Rejuvenator As seen on Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty •• Remarkable•skin•anti-aging•&•healing• properties •• Super•absorbing.•Can•penetrate•all•three• layers•of•the•skin•offering•exceptional•cell• hydration•&•regeneration •• Ideal•for•scars,•blemishes,•wrinkles,• &•skin•ailments•including•eczema,• psoriasis,•acne,•rashes,•bites,•sores,• burns,•etc. •• 100%•natural,•Certified•Organic,• absolutely•no•additives •• Highly•effective Mail Order Available Amazing Price 50 ml only•$19.90 100ml only•$29.90 Bringing You The Best In Natural Health MARSHALLS HEALTH & NATURAL THERAPY CONSULTING - PRESCRIBING - DISPENSING - MANUFACTURING MEDICAL HERBALISTS 110 seaVIeW roaD, NeW BrIGHToN (Just past C.N.B School) pHoNe 388 5757 - KNOWLEDGE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE - - We are alWaYs HappY To Help! - Fujitsu Heat Pump at a HOt HOt Price Conditions apply* Hot Hot De on 8KW Heat P Model ASTG14LUCB 5.4kW Hi Wall $1,999 Fujitsu ASTG24L 8 KW Heat Fully Installed* Pump for Just $2,999 PH 377 0034 Six Year Warranty OR 0800 800 734 Fully Installed* DON’T MISS OUT!
