The whole school event ‘Strength for Sudan’ had a goal of moving 40,000kg over 40m to raise funds for World Vision’s 40-Hour Famine. Page 3 Page 13 Medbury moves tonnes of rice for charity LIFT: Year 8 Medbury School pupil Jack McKenzie carries rice on his head as part of the school’s World Vision challenge. School spokeswoman Rachelle Mathews said this goal got “totally obliterated” when the pupils moved close to triple that amount. The pupils were sponsored per kilogram moved, total kilograms moved, or by a lump sum amount. The rice and water used was purchased by the school and will be donated to the Salvation Army and Christchurch City Mission. A similar event, ‘Stroll for Syria’, took place last year, which saw the school raise almost $23,000, the second highest amount raised by a group in the South Island. The event on Friday was run by year 8 house leaders, head of community service Amos Pilgrim, and student head of community service Sam Moorhead. Mr Pilgrim said community service events like this were fast becoming a highlight of the school’s calendar. 021 914 565 Quarry appeal gets rich-lister backing • By Anan Zaki FISHING MAGNATE Kypros Kotzikas is digging into his pockets to stop the controversial quarry in Yaldhurst.
