Rangi students pay tribute to inspiring women

INSPIRING: Rangi Ruru student head of school Rachel McSweeny (sixth from left), with the student

leadership team and principal Sandra Hastie, discussed inspirational women, including the Gibson

sisters (inset) and Harry Potter author JK Rowling (right).

IN THE LEAD up to International

Women’s Day on Friday, Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School and Christ’s

College students got together to

discuss women they admire.

Author JK Rowling, female

politicians and, of course, mums

and sisters were among those

identified by the students, as

well as a group of sisters from

Christchurch in the late 1880s.

Rangi Ruru was established in

Webb St, Papanui, by the Gibson

sisters 130 years ago. They wanted

to provide an environment “where

girls could flourish and excel.”

Rangi Ruru student head of

school Rachel McSweeny said

there’s a great deal of admiration

for the women who founded Rangi

Ruru. “We have tried to encapsulate

the idea the Gibson sisters had

of creating a place where young

women could be the best they can

be in a safe, secure and supportive

environment,” she said.

candidates

step up for

October

elections

• By Julia Evans

THREE CANDIDATES may vie

to represent Papanui at the city

council table in the local body

elections.

Think Papanui founder Simon

Britten will run in the October

elections, although he hasn’t

decided whether to challenge for

the city council or Papanui-Innes

Community Board.

If he runs for council, he

will take on incumbent Mike

Davidson for a seat at the city

council table.

Last week, Papanui-Innes board

member John Stringer said he

would also run in the ward. So

far it is the only area to have more

than one candidate confirmed to

stand.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman

Sam MacDonald will run for the

Waimairi Ward, but current city

councillor Raf Manji is not standing.

In 2016, Mr Britten was beaten

for a Papanui Ward spot on the

community board by Mr Stringer

and deputy chairwoman Emma

Norrish.

GREAT NEWS for young tennis player

Abby Mason on page 14 today.

The 15-year-old St Margaret’s College

student, who plays for Elmwood, has

made the New Zealand junior Fed Cup

team to compete at the Asia-Oceania

qualifying event next month.

A top hockey player and swimmer, she has turned her focus to

tennis in the past six months, and the rewards have now come.

Abby told sports reporter Gordon Findlater: “There was one

point during the winter where I was playing more hockey than

tennis. It definitely didn’t help at all, so hopefully it will help my

tennis this year.”

A goal is to play college tennis in the United States. If she does

well in the Fed Cup, no doubt she will.

Kahu Rd improvements finally passed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TWO COMMUNITY boards

had to meet again last week to

pass safety improvements for

cyclists on a busy Fendalton

road after a they failed to do it

last year.

The decision has come six

months late because there

were not enough

Fendalton-

Helen

community

board members

at a meeting in

September to

make a formal

decision on the

improvements to

Kahu Rd outside

Christchurch

Boys’ High

School.

The original

meeting was

deemed invalid due to the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board only having

four members present.

A quorum of five members

from each board is needed to

make a formal decision.

City council head of

DELAYED: A decision to make Kahu Rd outside CBHS safer

was delayed by six months due to a community board

procedural error.

community support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell

admitted an error was made and

it had never happened before.

Last year, CBHS expressed

concerns over the safety of road

users and the large number of

students who cycle to the school.

CBHS has had a significant

redevelopment, causing cycle

parking facilities to be relocated,

which resulted in significantly

greater cycle activity on Kahu

Rd outside the school.

The error meant all affected

parties had to repeat their deputation

to the boards again.

Kahu Rd resident Leigh

Webber said he was very disappointed

in the process.

Residents were concerned

the city council staff recommendation

to have drop-off and

pick-up zones on both sides of

Kahu Rd and no stopping on

Girvan St would mean a loss of

car parks. However, the board

members went against the staff

recommendation and approved

the installation of a drop-off and

pick-up zone on the north side

of Kahu Rd.

It will be in effect between

8.30-9.30am and 2-4pm,

Monday to Friday. Outside

these times parking will be

unrestricted. ​

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said the boards decided to “take

the middle path” to relieve some

issues for the school and help

residents.

CBHS senior master Craig

Dunnett said it would have been

nice if the improvements had

happened earlier.

“Any change is a good change

if it is going to make it safer

for the school users and the

community users on the road

there,” he said.

He said the school would

have preferred the city council

staff recommendation but

understood residents were

concerned about losing car

parks.

Mr Dunnett said the area

outside the school was “an

accident waiting to happen.”

Mr Webber said the board

made an acceptable decision, but

it is the school’s responsibility to

ensure its students’ safety.

“CBHS are trying to transfer

all the costs and trouble over

to the public when the answer

lies within the school itself,” Mr

Webber said.

Revolutionary plan for red zone

• By Matt Slaughter

A NEW, children-friendly

development along the

Richmond end of the Avon River

will aim to help Banks Avenue

School Pupils recover from the

trauma of the earthquakes.

Avon-Otakaro Network’s

Evan Smith said about four out

of five Banks Avenue School

pupils had been left with some

form of post-traumatic stress

disorder.

Banks

Avenue School

principal

Toni Burnside

said an ongoing

study by

Canterbury

Toni Burnside

University associate

professor

Kathleen

Liberty had found Banks Avenue

pupils continued to show symptoms

of PTSD almost nine years

on from the first quake.

Mrs Burnside said these

symptoms included not being

able to focus in class, having

separation anxiety from their

parents and struggling to sleep

at night.

Mr Smith said Avon-Otakaro

Network’s so-called Riverlution

project would aim to bring

normality and fun back into the

lives of pupils and residents who

had been surrounded by red

zone for so long.

“With the behaviours some

of the kids are exhibiting, they

calm down a lot if they’re out

and about and getting in touch

with the dirt.”

The development would run

from Glade Ave to Banks Ave

and include a number of features

including kids walking trails,

play areas gardens, a pop-up cafe

and a tiny house village.

“For a long time this area has

been a place of fear and now it

can be a part of the solution.

It’s really just enabling kids to

have an opportunity to explore

the space and be at peace with it

again,” said Mr Smith.

He said Banks Avenue

pupils would get to choose

one feature to include in the

project and the discussion on

what this would be was in its

early stages.

Mrs Burnside said Ms Liberty

was continuing to work with

Banks Ave’s teachers to develop

strategies to help pupils with

PTSD cope at school.

These included “drink to

think,” a daily initiative where

children are made to drink milk,

having play time before lunchtime

so students are

settled when they come

back into the classroom and

having a snack break between

the start of school and morning

tea time.

She said involving pupils in

the Riverlution project would

be another positive step towards

their recovery.

“We’ve been devastated here,

so it’s really nice for them to

be a part of that re-growth

and rejuvenation . . . in years

to come, they’ll remember the

earthquakes, but they’ll also

remember that they’ve played a

Annual Plan

CONSULTATION ON the draft

Annual Plan 2019-20 is open.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said the

draft Annual Plan has a few significant

changes from the budget

forecast for year two of the Long

Term Plan.

It reflects a desire to reduce

rates increases, remove chlorine

from the city’s drinking water

and to focus attention on roads,

footpaths and parks.

These are our top priorities

for the year ahead,” she said.

“It’s a year for getting the basics

done, while ensuring our

drinking water is in line with

new standards set by central

Government.”

The average rates increase is

lower than the amount forecast

in the Long Term Plan, which is

pleasing, she said.

However, there has been an

increase in the fixed charges

component of rates, including

an increase in the waste

minimisation rate, due to

increased costs for recycling on

the international market.

•Consultation on the plan

is open for the rest of March,

with hearings planned for

April.

As local MP I was impressed

by the turn-out of hundreds of

volunteers from the Student

Volunteer Army (SVA) to plant

native trees and clear weeds at the

Styx River Catchment in Belfast

recently. Congratulations to SVA

president Sati and his team for coordinating

such a successful event

in support of the local community. I

enjoyed chatting to volunteers and

having a closer look at the work

they undertake, and acknowledging

what they do when I spoke at

the event. Thirty-five species of

native birds live in the fragile Styx

Catchment and it was great to see

everyone making such a positive

impact on this area.

I enjoyed attending the Rare

Breeds and Heritage Lifestyle Day

at Willowbank on Sunday. It was

a great opportunity to have a look

at New Zealand’s rare breeds and

to hear about the work undertaken

by the Rare Breeds Conservation

Society of New Zealand.

I’m inviting our principals and

school communities from across

the electorate to a public meeting

to look at proposed changes to

schools under Government’s

Tomorrow’s Schools programme on

Wednesday 3 April at 7pm in the

Ruataniwha Kaiapoi Civic Centre

in Kaiapoi, so please do attend to

hear what the proposals will mean

for your school. We’ve raised some

serious concerns about the potential

transfer of power from parents to

officials.

Changes to apprenticeship and

trades training are causing concerns

that polytechnics in the regions will

be short-changed. From next year,

trades-training apprenticeships will

be managed by polytechnics as

they were almost 30 years ago. I

believe this is a step backwards

as today we recognise industry is

best at training industry. Regional

polytechnics like Ara will be

centralised into one large national

polytechnic in Wellington and all

decision-making for Ara will come

from Wellington. We are consulting

New Zealanders on their views and

I would love to hear from you.

Teen poet’s special inspiration

• By Jess Gibson

ONE DAY Evie Johnson wants

to be prime minister – and now

she has a personal letter from

Jacinda Ardern to inspire her.

Last year, the 13-year-old from

Strowan sent Ms Ardern a letter

about a series of haiku poems

she wrote from the perspective

of a refugee, which were printed

and sold to

raise money for

UNICEF.

Ms Ardern

responded to

the letter last

month and

congratulated

Jacinda

Ardern

Evie on her

project.

The prime

minister

also said she had run a haiku

competition when she was at

school.

Evie wrote her poems as part

of the year-long Passion Project,

in which year 8 pupils used their

passions to help solve some of

the world’s biggest problems,

with the United Nations

sustainable development goals as

their framework.

Evie sold all 150 tea towels in

under three weeks and raised

$1500, which she donated to

UNICEF’s Rohingya children’s

appeal. Evie used her love for

creative writing to express how

she felt about goal No 4 – quality

education.

“I have always loved learning

and it breaks my heart to

think that not all children

receive a quality education,

usually for reasons outside of

their control,” said Evie.

“A quality education can

change any child’s future. Just

because children are refugees,

they should not miss out on the

opportunity to make a better life

for themselves and others,” she

said.

No garden

A CEREMONY for the

Awards will not be held for the

It is the only ward in

Instead, the board will post

Board member Linda Stewart

opposed the decision.

“I see it as a negative to not

encourage the ward to be

colourful and pretty again and

pretty for everybody.”

She said gardening is a way

for many people to add some

vibrancy to damaged streets

and manage the stress which

came with being surrounded by

damage.

All the other members of

the board agreed that the

British expat’s love of Richmond

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN CATHY Allden laid eyes

on Richmond in 2007, she knew

she was home.

The British expat fell in love with

New Zealand’s landscapes when

she first visited in 2001.

When she and her partner

John Cleminson decided to start

their house hunt in Christchurch,

they quickly realised they loved

no landscape more than the one

around Richmond.

“We really loved the river and we

loved the proximity to the city and

we didn’t look much further than

within a 1km radius of the river.”

After the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, the surroundings Miss

Allden had grown so fond of all

but disappeared.

Her house was one of the few

still habitable in her street, just five

houses down from the red zone.

The stress of the situation was

added to Miss Allden’s attempts to

have a child through IVF in 2012,

which eventually led to the birth of

her son Jack in 2013.

Seeing damage all around her,

Miss Allden realised she wanted

to do whatever she could to help

Richmond recover.

After quitting her job as a

travel agent to become a full-time

mum, she decided to make this

her mission. It all started with a

paddling pool.

“Me and a couple of other mums

put together a petition and went

and did a deputation to the city

council for the Long Term Plan to

get the paddling pool at Avebury

House fixed. That got approved.”

Miss Allden said she got such

a buzz out of making this project

happen she became hungry to do

more.

“That was the catalyst really

that started the momentum of

a sense of empowerment that

we could actually do more and

engage more and take ownership

of the post-earthquake recovery in

Richmond.”

She then decided to turn her

attention to Richmond’s green

of the Richmond Community

Garden.

The garden was started on the

edge of the River Rd red zone in

2017 and its contributors have

since worked on a number of

community planting and green

space development projects with

schools and other community

organisations.

Miss Allden said the space has

helped connect the Richmond

“We’re showing skills and

growing food resilience and really

working together as a village to

support each other.”

Subdivision

gets new

reserves

• By Matt Slaughter

FOUR EMPTY plots of land in

the Prestons subdivision will

become recreation reserves.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board approved the proposal

and the reserves’ names at

a meeting last week.

The decision means the

reserves will now be maintained

regularly by city council staff.

It has previously not been

responsible for the areas because

unnamed reserves cannot be

placed under the city council’s

schedule of maintenance.

The community board agreed

the renaming was the best

option for all involved because it

means the reserves can now be

easily located by residents and

their use can be promoted by the

city council.

The names are:

1. ​Aopori Reserve (Prestons

Park Drive)

2. Arokehe Reserve (Avemore

Drive)

3. Kowaro Reserve (Prestons

Park Drive)

4. Mara Reserve (Katrine

Drive)

The city council also plans to

extend Marshland Domain.

the benefits of

building

THE FORMER Redwood

Plunket rooms have been unused

since Plunket moved out in 2014,

citing concerns over the strength

of the building.

Four years later, with the

city council-owned facility in

a near derelict state, work to

clear the overgrown garden

and refurbish the building

commenced.

Without the advocacy of

community leaders, including

Papanui city councillor Mike

Davidson, it could have been

even longer before funding for

any work was allocated by the

council.

The price tag for this

work started at $30,000,

but ultimately ended up at

$100,000. Apparently, the

initial budget was not based

on a detailed report and then,

while work was under way,

discovered.

I’ve seen this cost raise a few

eyebrows in comments on the

Think Papanui website. Would it

have been better to just demolish

the building, or might it have

been cheaper to build something

new? Clearly, something had to

be done. Designing and building

a new community facility, even

a tiny one like this, isn’t going to

come cheap.

If the building was privately

owned, maybe demolition and

re-purposing of the site would

have been more likely.

Perhaps that illustrates the

value of local government

investing in a facility for

the long-term benefit of the

community.

Now reopened as the

local community workers have a

space to work from.

They will be based in the

community they’re serving,

adjacent to other public

amenities, including the

Redwood Library and park, as

well as near the shops and public

transport.

A local base is an important

ingredient for a community-led

project like Neighbourhood

Links and I’m glad our

community board and city

council supported it.

• By Jess Gibson

AFTER A lifetime of low

self-esteem and a fear of

injuries, Jennine White felt

unfit, vulnerable and afraid to

work out.

Now the 33-year-old

performance reporting analyst

will take part in the 6km

City2Surf run on March 24

feeling better than ever.

Mrs White decided to focus

on her health in November

after a visit to her doctor to

talk about a shoulder injury

turned into a discussion about

how her lack of fitness was

affecting her well-being.

Her doctor recommended

the ‘green prescription’, a

free programme which offers

advice from a physical activity

coach.

She received a plan from

her coach Olivia Maisey and

gained the confidence to

participate in the City2Surf

after she was encouraged to see

a personal trainer, get injury

rehabilitation and see a life

coach.

Mrs White is now positive

she can push herself to do the

6km event if she alternates

between a brisk walk and a jog

to take care of her injury.

While she has finished with

the green prescription, she

said Miss Maisey has been like

her “cheerleader.” She said her

personal trainer, life coach,

family and friends have all

helped her to stay motivated.

“People like me need

someone in our corner and

someone to help us fight

through to get a better

lifestyle,” she said.

Mrs White said she is

focussed on her well-being

rather than losing weight,

and feels “amazing” because

of it.

“My mental health is so

much better, I have reduced

anxiety and sleep so well. I

feel like I’m on another planet

now,” said Mrs White.

Miss Maisey said it was good

to see how extra support can

make a difference to someone’s

lifestyle.

“She’s gone from doing

barely any exercise to

absolutely smashing it,” said

Miss Maisey.

“She has done amazing.”

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, as we

navigate our way through the first few months of

the year. Some of that is directly due to a recent

set of experiences and my observations of how

individuals perform when they are encouraged and

praised. I know there’s nothing earth-shattering in

that observation, but there’s definitely something

compelling.

Praise is defined as: The expression of approval

or admiration for someone or something.

And here’s the connection:

Over the past weekend, I attended an event

to support friends who were taking part in a

regional sports challenge. Having seen them

through their various transitions, I was off to

find a spot on one of the backroads where I

could wholeheartedly cheer them on.

What I got to experience has given me a

whole new insight into the value of praise

because, on my small corner of the course, I

was able to acknowledge and cheer on some

200 athletes. The reaction to a simple sentence

of encouragement was profound. To a man

(and woman) many of the competitors picked

their pace up, took the time to nod or smile

and even (despite the difficulty of that moment

in the event) shout out a quick ‘thank you’. All

of us felt better for the exchange. It made me

wonder how often we hinder each other’s

progress by not positively acknowledging

good work or offering praise based on a

positive action.

At this time of the year we are preparing for

business planning, one of the most significant

and serious parts of our annual calendar.

Inevitably, we spend time analysing different

aspects of the year, including our strengths,

Shout Out &

Praise Up!

challenges and opportunities. Being in business,

the opportunity to berate yourself for missing a

target or botching a new process – or interacting

without always considering the 100 other

agendas – is always on the cards but the simple

experience of being praised for the items done

well goes a long way.

A Stanford professor, Carol Dweck, has spent

some 40 years studying the growth mindset and

the part praise plays in it. Although her studies

captured the responses of children when praised,

I think the passage of years doesn’t make too

much difference. So, make someone’s day by

offering genuine encouragement and praise.

For me, that shout out goes to homeowners,

especially those that assist in the transaction

process by heeding the recommendations of

their property professionals and remaining open

to measured, well-considered feedback.

Like the cyclists I watched climbing steep hills, I

also get to work with some consultants climbing

incredible mountains of their own. Here’s to that

ascent being praiseworthy and wholehearted

whilst they deliver results for their clients.

And, as far as the business planning we have ahead

of us goes, another sports-based analogy comes

to mind:

Strengthen the core and disrupt the edges.

Thank you, Bert.

Spotlight on suffragists

Papanui Heritage Group’s

Murray Williams and

Christine Grant write about

the suffragists from the

suburb

IN LAST week’s column, general

information about the Papanui

women who signed the 1893

petition was reviewed.

In this article, we look at some

of these women who fought for

the right to vote in a little more

depth.

Maria Sophia Pope, née Bloor,

is undoubtedly the best known of

this group.

Born in London in 1818 and

married to a dyer, Thomas Pope,

she arrived in Christchurch in

1862 and immediately displayed

the entrepreneurial qualities that

were to make her a household

name in the city by opening a

shop in Market Square (now

Victoria Square).

She advertised as ‘Mrs Pope,

Importer of General and Fancy

Stationery, Berlin Wools etc.’

Eventually she shifted her

business to Colombo St and then

to Cashel St. In 1887 she bought

a residential property in Papanui

on Schmidt St, which was later

renamed Hawthorne Rd. She

was living in this house when

she signed the petition in 1893.

She died in 1909, and in 1916, the

business was reorganised and

incorporated and continued to

trade in Christchurch under the

Mrs Pope brand until the 1990s.

A Papanui branch was

established at the Northlands

mall in the 1970s and it became

one of nine city branches selling

a wide variety of clothing and

imported wool.

Alice Pattrick, who was born

in Lincolnshire, England, in 1820

arrived in Canterbury with her

husband on the Cressy in December

1850 and they gravitated

to the Ashley district where they

farmed.

By 1893 she was widowed and

was living in Papanui in Myrniong

St (now Chapel St) when she

signed the petition. She was 74

when she died in 1894. An obituary

in the Press mourned the loss

of another link with the earliest

settlers and noted that she had

left three sons, four daughters,

‘about’ 50 grandchildren and 10

great-grandchildren.

Eliza Greenstreet (neé Mackie)

arrived with her family in 1852

and married in 1858. She and her

husband moved out of Christchurch

to Ringwood station in

south Rakaia, where they did

well enough to afford a townhouse

on the corner of Mays and

Papanui Rds where she was living

when she signed the petition.

Eliza had 10 children and died in

1912 aged 69.

Another signatory with

strong Papanui links was Annie

Hookham, who had been ‘head

female’ on the staff at Papanui

Primary School in the 1880s. She

became president of the Canterbury

Women’s Institute and

her membership of the Fabian

Society is evidence of her possessing

advanced social views for

the time.

A CELEBRATION is planned

for April 5 and 6 to celebrate

the past 65 years of educational

history of Linwood College.

In mid-2019, the school’s

buildings will be demolished in

preparation for a full rebuild on

site.

At $44 million the rebuild

budget is one of the largest of

any of the Ministry of Education’s

rebuild programme since

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Students enrolled at the school

will be relocated to old Avonside

Girls’ High site for the full duration

of the rebuild.

When news of the rebuild was

released, approaches were made

to the school for an opportunity

to celebrate its past.

At the time it was built in

1954, Linwood High was the

first post-war co-educational

school to open in the entire

country.

While the school looked more

like a building site than an

educational campus on opening

the resources equivalent to any

existing school in the city.

To mark the demolition

of the buildings a ticketed

Conversazione event is being

hosted on April 5 and a free

open day on April 6.

The event will end with a

farewell ceremony at 3pm. This

event is open to anyone in the

community to attend.

Past students from all over

New Zealand and Australia

have bought tickets to attend

the farewell says the chair of the

event’s organising committee

Linda Rutland.

“People have a real attachment

to their old school with the

original 1954s remaining a very

tight-knit group.”

Greater Christchurch state secondary school principals and

boards of trustees have undertaken a joint effort to strengthen the

current secondary network. One of the outcomes of this work

is the proposed implementation of new enrolment schemes

and amendments to existing enrolment schemes for some coeducational

state secondary schools. There are seven secondary

schools proposing to amend or implement a scheme, which are:

• Burnside High School

• Haeata Community Campus

• Hillmorton High School

• Linwood College

• Mairehau High School

• Papanui High School

• Riccarton High School

More information on this process and an online

survey to gather feedback can be found at:

There are also public meetings to gather feedback:

• Wednesday 20th March, 7pm – 8pm – Hillmorton High School

• Monday 25th March, 7pm – 8pm – Papanui High School

• Tuesday 26th March, 7pm – 8pm – Riccarton High School

Strong summer of tennis earns reward

OPTION ONE

• By Gordon Findlater

ST MARGARET’S College’s

Abby Mason has been rewarded

for a strong summer by being

selected in the New Zealand

Junior Fed Cup team to compete

at the Asia-Oceania qualifying

event.

Abby, 15, received a phone

call last week during a coaching

session to learn she will be

heading to the tournament in

New Delhi from April 15 to 20.

“It was such a good feeling,”

said Abby.

“It’s something I’ve been

aiming for, but I didn’t think I

was going to make it so it was

quite a surprise.”

Over the last six months Abby

has turned her focus to tennis,

something she believes has

helped elevate her game. She

previously swam competitively

which involved training four

CALL UP: Fifteen-yearold

Abby Mason has been

selected to represent New

Zealand at the Junior Fed

Cup Asia-Oceania qualifying

event in India.

She also played representative,

club and school hockey last year.

However, she will only play for

school this year in her pursuit

of improving her skills with the

racket.

“I’m putting a much

bigger emphasis on tennis,” she

said.

“There was one point during

the winter where I was playing

more hockey than tennis. It

definitely didn’t help at all, so

hopefully, it will help my tennis

this year.’’

Abby’s coach James Meredith

has been impressed with the

steps forward her game has taken

over the summer after shifting

more of a focus to tennis. He

believes she has the right tools to

succeed going forward.

“She’s an all-rounder, there’s

no real weaknesses in her game.

She’s tall and has a big serve

which means she can win a lot of

free points. She’s very fit which

her hockey has probably helped

with,” said Meredith.

“She always does well on beep

tests and can scramble to win

make balls to keep points alive.”

Last month Abby picked up

her first junior ITF ranking

points after collecting two wins

SPORT

at the Tennis Canterbury ITF at

Wilding Park.

Abby defeated 16th seed

Amy Stevens from Australia

in the first round 7-6, 6-4. She

then beat China’s Zijun Jiang

5-7, 6-2, 6-3 before falling to

17-year-old Holly Stewart of

Auckland 6-3, 2-6, 1-6 in the

round of 16.

At the 16U New Zealand

Junior Championships Abby

was defeated in the quarterfinals

by eventual champion

Jade Otway 4-6, 3-6. However,

Abby impressed at the 18U New

Zealand Junior Championships

with two wins – including a 6-4,

7-5 win over eighth seed Ivy

McLean – to reach the quarter

final stage.

Before heading to India with

the New Zealand team Abby

will represent St Margaret’s

at the national secondary

school champs at Wilding Park

from March 25-28. She will

also compete at two Tennis

New Zealand Kiwi Money

tournaments in Timaru and at

Cashmere Tennis Club in March.

In the future Abby hopes to

play tennis for a United States

college before seeing how far she

can go in the sport.

been working on individual

programmes since their last

assembly in December and they

are eager to see progress.

“We know a number of these

players have been playing for

their Super Rugby clubs in under-20

World Rugby recently announced

the draw for the

Africa, Scotland and Georgia

with an eye on qualifying for the
