18 Wednesday January 10 2018 Latest Christchurch news at Local Views Prize-giving celebrates SELWYN TIMES success of students •From page 17 •Luke Barrett – Horoeka Haemata Wero Award Koanga. Luke Barrett is the ‘Koanga learner of the year’. He is a keen drummer in a rock band. He has kept himself busy with a wide range of activities both in and out of school. Being an avid sportsman, he has received several accolades during the year for his achievements. Football, basketball, athletics, touch, helping with three-on-three and coaching at Clearview Primary School. Luke has embraced the life and energy of the school in whanau events, which he has led with pride, and has stepped up in whanau celebrations. •Kate Stevens – Horoeka Haemata Wero Award Raumati. Kate was the ‘Raumati learner of the year’. She has been a keen participant in a range of cultural elements across the school. Academically, she has excelled across a range of areas and, in particular, is a keen physicist extending herself outside of school hours. As a whanau ambassador, she has been present on open nights, was a key ambassador for the 40-hour famine and a librarian. Kate set herself very high standards across all areas. •Cam Batchelor – Rolleston College Horoeka Haemata Wilson Cup for excellence in the arts. Cam has been involved in many areas of the performing arts, including a lead role in Elf the Musical JR. He won Rolleston’s Got Talent for a violin solo performance. Cam has been learning saxophone through the college and has taken part in Bandquest performances. In the wider community, Cam is also a part of the Christchurch School of Music Sinfonia. •Ana Tatana-Harris – Waitaha Senior Speech Cup. Ana took part in the Waitaha Regional Maori Speech Competition and won top honours. In her speech, Ana Harris-Tatana demonstrated good pace and volume and spoke with confidence. •Eric Russell – Striving for Excellence Te Rito Harakeke Cup. Eric has consistently displayed a positive attitude in all his class activities. He showed strengths in the Waitaha values of curiosity, community, integrity and respect. Eric has great determination and a willingness to give anything a shot. •Jackie Freeman – Whanau Trophy Hotoke Whanau. Hotoke Whanau was victorious at the end of the year, winning the college inter-whanau competition in which Ngahuru was second. Koanga and Raumati tied for third place. •Anika Gates-Thorn and Nikau Rapana – Te Mahuri Trophy. The Te Mahuri award is presented to students who display bicultural confidence and competence in their learning and through the pursuit of co-curricular opportunities. Readers respond to the article revealing police have caught two of the teenagers allegedly involved in the Rolleston ‘drown him’ assault case Samantha Weller – What is actually wrong with teenagers these days? There was bullying in my school days, but cruel is an absolute understatement here. These attackers need to be punished as any other attacker would, a slap on the hand and a telling off won’t really do much. Bradley Mannering – Interesting that the police conduct authority have been involved. Does it make any of you wonder if the story isn’t what the media has sensationalised it to be? Sonya Brooks – Not at all. No matter how the media are the facts remain this poor kid was hospitalised and subjected to an assault that could have resulted in his death. It reads as though the boys have laid a complaint. It could be as simple as a complaint over the hat they refused to hand over. These kids need to be held accountable. Not acceptable behaviour and they need help and consequences. Judy Gillstrom – Police have done a good job locating these nasty youths. Now the judge needs to do his/her job and seriously deter/punish these law breakers, and send a clear message that this behaviour cannot be tolerated. Amanda Wilson – We know that in some cases, if the public have a strong enough opinion and stance against this sort of behaviour, there is a possibility they will use this case to send a message. But the public need to be loud and strong. Otherwise they will be slapped on the hand and sent on their merry way to do this again. Absolutely disgusting behaviour and I hope they get their karma. Trisa Wilson – Afraid to let your children go out alone anywhere now, (it) used to only happen in movies.
