Selwyn Times: September 13, 2016

20 Tuesday

20 Tuesday September 13 2016 SELWYN TIMES Netball South Pacific Island Rolleston Samoa Experience October 2016 The team donating netball supplies to Netball Samoa in 2013. Following from our successful team travelling to Samoa in 2013, it was decided to take a second team to Samoa this September (23rd September to 6th October). The team of teenage girls are all connected to the Rolleston Netball Golden Oldies and have been fundraising for the past 18 months, raising over $30,000 to date. As Golden Oldies, we have loved the international tournaments we have attended – Fiji, San Diego and Hobart, and we wanted our girls to experience the same sort of netball fellowship while giving back to the community. We wanted to teach them the basic skills of being generous, working as a team and appreciating what we have. The team of eight girls is aged between 13 and 15 years of age and operates as the iNSPIRE team under our Golden Oldies umbrella. They have been heavily involved in raising the money themselves. They’ve had to learn to budget, to take minutes, write letters, apply for funding and have learnt skills to enable them to approach local businesses for assistance. The girls have purchased stationery and, along with Christina Brown, a member of the 2013 team, have collected stationery supplies from Rolleston School, Broadfields School and Whitcoulls Hornby, which they will donate to Tufutafoe Primary School. They will stay in a remote village in Savaii, spend time with the school children and teach them netball while also playing a game with them. While at the village – a visit of four days – they will attend a traditional church service (albeit in Samoan!), will help prepare a traditional tuanai (feast) including weaving plates and learning about the protocols of eating a traditional meal on the floor of a fale (house). They will visit a traditional family fale (home), a plantation and experience other cultural lessons. The whole team will also work with Netball Samoa in Apia – the girls in their holiday programme, our coaches and umpires with some Netball Samoa personnel. Rolleston Netball Club have donated old uniforms that will be given to Netball Samoa. They will visit a couple of schools in Apia and are hoping to also visit the National Hospital, as a number of our team are also involved in St John as cadets and volunteers. While also enjoying experiencing the wonderful tourist attractions that Samoa has to offer, we are hoping that our aim of “giving back to others and being grateful for all that we have” is paramount. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our families and friends and all the businesses who have supported us with our fundraising events.
