Mora starts<br />

last year as<br />

community<br />

board<br />

chairman<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

AFTER 27 years serving on the<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board, this term will<br />

be Mike Mora’s last.<br />

He said this stint was all<br />

about “handing over the torch”<br />

and continuing to serve the<br />

community.<br />

He said he<br />

was stepping<br />

down to spend<br />

more time with<br />

his family and<br />

Lotus 7 race car.<br />

“By the end of<br />

this term it will<br />

30 years on the Mike Mora<br />

board, which is a<br />

big chunk of my life,” he said.<br />

The 72-year-old will serve as<br />

chairman for the first year of<br />

the term then hand over the<br />

role to newly-appointed deputy<br />

chairman Andrei Moore for the<br />

remaining two years.<br />

“I just wanted to be chair to<br />

get some of these issues started<br />

then do a transition because this<br />

is going to be my last term and I<br />

want to put a succession plan in<br />

place for the next term,” Mr Mora<br />

said.<br />

Path trialled to keep pupils safe<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

AN INITIATIVE is being<br />

trialled to reduce traffic outside<br />

Aidanfield Christian School and<br />

keep pupils safe.<br />

A group of pupils want a<br />

walking path built from the<br />

school to the Nga Puna Wai<br />

Sports Hub car park, where they<br />

now get dropped off and picked<br />

up in a bid to reduce congestion<br />

outside the<br />

school.<br />

They have<br />

been working<br />

with Halswell<br />

Ward city<br />

councillor<br />

Anne<br />

Galloway to<br />

Anne<br />

Galloway<br />

make the idea<br />

a reality.<br />

On Friday,<br />

the pupils<br />

took part in a supervised trial<br />

walk along a marked out path<br />

to gauge interest in the idea.<br />

Cr Galloway said the trail<br />

was carried out to decide if a<br />

permanent pathway is needed.<br />

She said getting to and from<br />

the school can be dangerous for<br />

both pedestrians and motorists.<br />

“It’s a safety issue for<br />

everybody,” she said.<br />

“It’s a safety issue for the<br />

parents trying to get in and out<br />

ACTIVE: Lucas Lu, Jamie Lu, Grace Guo and Sophie Guo<br />

were just some of the pupils who walked from Nga Puna Wai<br />

Sports Hub to Aidanfield Christian School last week.<br />

a through-way for people from<br />

Halswell Rd through to Wigram<br />

Rd, so people speed along there.<br />

“People from all over the city<br />

drive to that school, so there’s<br />

going to be an issue always with<br />

cars unfortunately. It’s a very<br />

congested area, it’s got lots of<br />

entrances and exits. It’s quite a<br />

complex situation.”<br />

Cr Galloway said a pathway<br />

from Nga Puna Wai to the<br />

school could help to address<br />

the safety<br />

concerns<br />

“That<br />

could be an<br />

opportunity<br />

for that<br />

dangerous<br />

situation to<br />

be remediated<br />

permanent pathway would get<br />

vehicles off the road and pupils<br />

moving.<br />

“There’s a lot of traffic as<br />

with any school, and it’s just<br />

looking at providing parents<br />

alternative ways of getting there<br />

and particularly in the warmer<br />

months. There are some great<br />

opportunities to get out and<br />

“Anything that gets kids off<br />

powerful as well.”<br />

In Brief<br />

FIREARMS COLLECTION<br />

Malawi visit next year<br />

•From page 1<br />

He also received the Greatest<br />

Individual Impact Award, for<br />

almost single-handedly raising<br />

$14,000 for World Vision.<br />

“These awards highlight my<br />

passion to help as well as the huge<br />

amount of work that the school<br />

has encouraged us to do over the<br />

years to support World Vision,”<br />

he said.<br />

Said Izaac on raising the<br />

$14,000: “I started to email celebrities<br />

across the globe ranging<br />

from Graham Norton, Ellen De-<br />

Generes, multiple different actors<br />

and celebrities overseas and also<br />

many famous New Zealanders.”<br />

Izaac did not get many responses<br />

but heard back from<br />

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern,<br />

Nico Porteus, some All Blacks<br />

and other New Zealand artists.<br />

From there, he had the idea to<br />

host an art auction, which raised<br />

$<strong>12</strong>,000, he then door-knocked<br />

and approached family members,<br />

which raised another $2000.<br />

Next year, Izaac will travel to<br />

Malawi with four other World<br />

Vision Ambassadors and see<br />

where the funds from the 40hr<br />

famine will go.<br />

“This is a long way from home,<br />

making it an exciting adventure<br />

for myself and the other four<br />

ambassadors going on the trip. I<br />

feel excited but ready for the challenge,”<br />

he said.<br />

Once he returns from Malawi,<br />

he will visit schools across the<br />

country to assist with fundraising<br />

for World Vision, and he said<br />

one of his key goals is to increase<br />

participation in the famine across<br />

Christchurch.<br />

“I feel so privileged and blessed<br />

to be able to help World Vision<br />

with its global work and to be<br />

able to help it make a change is<br />

something that will stick with me<br />

forever,” he said.<br />

TV star preps for Mars project<br />

LARISSA WILSON is preparing<br />

for the voyage of a lifetime: A<br />

mission to Mars – or at least an<br />

experience that comes close.<br />

Last year, Miss Wilson starred<br />

in New Zealand TV series, The<br />

Great Kiwi Bake Off, a spin-off<br />

of one of the United Kingdom’s<br />

most popular shows, the Great<br />

British Bake Off.<br />

The Canterbury<br />

University mechanical<br />

engineering student wanted<br />

to prove there was a science to<br />

baking.<br />

Now, her degree is taking<br />

her to the Mars Desert Research<br />

Station in Utah, United States,<br />

where she<br />

will spend two weeks<br />

researching.<br />

The station, owned and<br />

operated by the Mars Society,<br />

is a space analogue facility<br />

supporting earth-based research<br />

in pursuit of the technology,<br />

operations and science required<br />

for human space exploration.<br />

Set in a Utah desert much<br />

like the Mars surface, the<br />

station offers opportunities for<br />

field studies as they would be<br />

conducted during an actual<br />

space mission.<br />

Said Miss Wilson: “I am<br />

incredibly excited to take part<br />

in a simulated Mars mission<br />

with a crew of talented and<br />

knowledgeable people from<br />

MISSION: Former television baking programme star Larissa<br />

Wilson will head to a Utah desert soon to take part in a Mars<br />

research project.<br />

“I have loved the idea of<br />

space exploration and learning<br />

about outer space since I was<br />

a small child. I feel incredibly<br />

honoured to have been<br />

selected as part of Expedition<br />

Boomerang and I’m eager to<br />

experience what being an early<br />

explorer of the red planet might<br />

be like.<br />

“Some of these projects will<br />

require me to take on a lot of<br />

new information and I hope to<br />

learn about the application of a<br />

range of fields of science such as<br />

geology and human biology in<br />

an ‘alien’ setting.<br />

“I also hope to complete some<br />

of my own research, possibly<br />

in the realm of acoustics<br />

engineering which is the field<br />

in which I plan to work,” Miss<br />

Wilson said.<br />

•From page 1<br />

Andrei Moore, who was only<br />

one-year-old when Mr Mora<br />

began on the board said he was<br />

really excited to give back to a<br />

community that had given him<br />

so much.<br />

“Halswell has been my<br />

home for 28 years, I was<br />

adopted from Romania when<br />

I was a couple of weeks old<br />

so instead of growing up in<br />

Romania I got to grow up in a<br />

wonderful place called Halswell,<br />

and I believe I owe everything<br />

to Halswell and the people<br />

within it,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora had a long list<br />

of issues he wanted to<br />

address before retiring from the<br />

board.<br />

“The South West Leisure<br />

Centre, the Halswell Junction<br />

Rd extension, getting issues<br />

sorted out with the Yaldhurst<br />

Village development, getting<br />

the old Sockburn Service<br />

Centre tidied up as well as<br />

Sockburn Park, and sort out a<br />

lot of reasonably minor issues<br />

in Halswell such as crossings in<br />

order to make pedestrian and<br />

cyclist access in some of the new<br />

developments better.”<br />

Community board member<br />

Andrei Moore<br />

Helen Broughton, who<br />

represents the Riccarton Ward,<br />

was concerned none of Mr<br />

Mora’s priorities focused on<br />

Riccarton.<br />

“We are off to a rocky start<br />

really because I’m not prepared<br />

to have Riccarton ignored,” she<br />

said.<br />

Ms Broughton said she<br />

wanted to deal with the effects<br />

of medium density zoning and<br />

traffic congestion.<br />

“Medium density zoning<br />

promoted at 30 people per<br />

hectare is tracking at 70 people<br />

per hectare – far beyond<br />

planners expectations.”<br />

Entertainer honoured with local hero award<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

KATHLEEN HOOD has spent 40<br />

years putting smiles on the faces of<br />

Christchurch’s elderly.<br />

The 86-year-old entertains residents<br />

at Middlepark Rest Home,<br />

Upper Riccarton, Elmswood Retirement<br />

Village, Bryndwr, and has<br />

previously done so at The Princess<br />

Margaret Hospital.<br />

This volunteering work has<br />

earned her a Kiwibank New Zealand<br />

Local Hero of the Year Award,<br />

which she and other Christchurch<br />

local heroes will receive at a ceremony<br />

on December 3.<br />

Mrs Hood tells jokes, reads poetry<br />

and runs a quiz each time she<br />

visits retirement homes.<br />

She said this brings joy to their<br />

residents and the quizzes include<br />

historic questions, which bring back<br />

memories and often start nostalgic<br />

conversations between them.<br />

“It’s really good because the questions<br />

I ask are relevant to their age<br />

and their experiences in life. They<br />

do really enjoy it.”<br />

Mrs Hood said her favourite thing<br />

about what she does and the reason<br />

she has been doing it for so many<br />

years is it brings happiness to people<br />

who sometimes need it most.<br />

“The best thing for me is giving<br />

to these older people. Some of<br />

them have had very lonely lives<br />

and when they come into the rest<br />

home they’re a wee bit nervous.<br />

She said when she entertains<br />

residents “there’s a lot of laughter, I<br />

can even tell a few risque jokes and<br />

they enjoy all that.”<br />

Mrs Hood said not even health<br />

issues were able to stop her volunteering<br />

for long.<br />

“I did have two challenges with<br />

cancer but I have had surgery and<br />

I’m really fine now, everything’s all<br />

good.’’<br />

She said she was back in front<br />

of retirement home audiences “as<br />

soon as I could get back behind the<br />

wheel.”<br />

Mrs Hood is proud to receive a<br />

local hero award this year.<br />

“I never ever expected it and<br />

when it came everybody around<br />

me, my family and my friends<br />

were all saying well deserved. It’s<br />

very humbling and it will be to be<br />

among people who have done marvellous<br />

things in the community on<br />

the night of the awards.”<br />

But Mrs Hood said winning<br />

awards is not why she volunteers<br />

her time.<br />

“If you ask any volunteer, it’s not<br />

for accolades or recognition, you<br />

don’t do it for that, it’s just for the<br />

love of doing it, I suppose.”<br />

She hopes her efforts will inspire<br />

her children, grandchildren and<br />

great-grandchildren to volunteer in<br />

their communities.<br />

Cycling to school not what it used to be<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

IN THE late 1970s, up to 75 per<br />

cent of students were making<br />

their daily commute by bicycle to<br />

some high schools.<br />

However, new statistics from<br />

the city council show few schools<br />

had more than 10 per cent of<br />

students cycling to school last<br />

year.<br />

While the city<br />

council statistics<br />

from 1979 showed<br />

75 per cent of<br />

Burnside High<br />

students cycled to<br />

school, last year<br />

Phil<br />

only seven per cent<br />

were making the<br />

trip by bicycle.<br />

Holstein<br />

Burnside High principal Phil<br />

Holstein said the latest figures are<br />

“sad but not surprising.”<br />

“Looking at the nature of<br />

the school’s location on a very<br />

busy Memorial Ave/Greers<br />

Rd intersection, the volume of<br />

traffic is a significant part of that<br />

[students cycling less]. I don’t<br />

think parents think it is safe to<br />

let their young children bike to<br />

school,” he said.<br />

The schools with more than<br />

60 per cent of students cycling in<br />

the 1970s were Cashmere High<br />

(60 per cent), Christchurch Boys’<br />

High (67 per cent), Christchurch<br />

Girls’ High (64 per cent) and<br />

Papanui High (73 per cent). But<br />

last year, only 13 per cent of<br />

Cashmere High students cycled<br />

to school, while eight per cent of<br />

Papanui High students did.<br />

Out of 15 schools recently<br />

surveyed, Christ’s College<br />

had the highest proportion of<br />

students cycling to school last<br />

year with 34 per cent.<br />

The second highest was CBHS<br />

with 25 per cent. It also had<br />

the second highest increase in<br />

students cycling between 2016<br />

and 2018 with a six per cent rise.<br />

CGHS experienced the highest<br />

rise with a 10 per cent increase to<br />

15 per cent.<br />

City councillor Sara Templeton<br />

felt the increases had a lot to do<br />

with the opening of the Uni-<br />

Cycle route in 2016, which runs<br />

adjacent to CBHS and CGHS.<br />

“It’s the one thing that seems<br />

to be the most different to the<br />

other schools, it’s having a high<br />

amenity cycleway right next<br />

to it. Before I was elected as<br />

a community board member<br />

and a councillor, I was part of a<br />

travel safe planning group at a<br />

local school and we did lots of<br />

surveying and lots of kids wanted<br />

to bike to school and the key<br />

thing that stopped them from<br />

biking was the parents perception<br />

of safety,” she said.<br />

CBHS principal Nic Hill said<br />

it is possible the Uni-Cycle route<br />

has contributed to the rise. But<br />

he also thought the growth<br />

of cycling as a sport could be<br />

NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK: The<br />

number of students cycling<br />

to school in Christchurch has<br />

significantly declined from<br />

when Rebecca Ponton (left)<br />

had to try and find her bike at<br />

Burnside High School.<br />

contributing to the<br />

increase.<br />

“Cycling is a<br />

growing sport<br />

here, we are<br />

the national<br />

champions here<br />

two years in a<br />

row. Cycling as a<br />

Nic Hill<br />

sport is on a rise<br />

nationally and certainly at Boys’<br />

High.”<br />

However, CBHS and CGHS<br />

are not the only schools located<br />

next to a cycleway. Papanui High<br />

sits next to the Northern Line<br />

Cycleway and experienced a one<br />

per cent decrease in students<br />

cycling to school between 2016<br />

and 2018.<br />

Big future for young filmmakers<br />

• By Claire Booker<br />

SELECTED HARDWARE<br />

FREYA CHAMPION had acted<br />

in one short film before her<br />

fellow Christchurch Girls’ High<br />

School classmates recruited her<br />

for their media studies project.<br />

But last week her talents were<br />

recognised at the Ara School<br />

Shorts Screen Festival, where she<br />

was named best actress.<br />

The film Lured was made by<br />

CGHS students Louise Kim and<br />

Georgie Baddeley, who created it<br />

in their media studies class.<br />

Freya played the leading role of<br />

Liz, a young woman investigating<br />

the sudden disappearance of<br />

her best friend.<br />

Louise, who lives in<br />

Halswell, wrote the<br />

script for the film<br />

after researching<br />

pseudo-religion<br />

and finding<br />

out about<br />

multiple<br />

historic<br />

cult-related<br />

murders.<br />

Lured<br />

was one of<br />

19 films<br />

showcased<br />

at the<br />

competition<br />

final at The<br />

Palms. The<br />

short films<br />

were screened<br />

at Reading Cinemas.<br />

Said Louise: “It was one of the<br />

most exciting moments of my<br />

life to have our film screened in<br />

an actual cinema and having an<br />

audience to watch it.”<br />

Freya was surprised to take out<br />

best actress, and said it was a real<br />

honour.<br />

Her passion for acting has<br />

flourished over the past few<br />

years as she has been involved<br />

in theatre sports and small<br />

productions.<br />

“As I have only starred in one<br />

other film, I wasn’t quite sure<br />

what would tick the boxes for<br />

the judges, so I was<br />

pleasantly surprised to receive<br />

the award,” she said. The 18-yearold<br />

also has a passion for politics<br />

and earlier this year attended the<br />

Youth Parliament as the Youth<br />

MP for Christchurch Central<br />

Labour MP Duncan Webb. ​<br />

Freya said the highlight of<br />

being involved in the film was<br />

working with her two best<br />

friends.<br />

“Georgie and Louise had a<br />

great vision for the film, and<br />

because of our friendship, we<br />

were able to easily communicate<br />

ideas and this allowed us to film<br />

in a good environment,” she said.<br />

Next year, Freya, Georgie and<br />

Louise will go their separate<br />

ways to study, but will<br />

continue to develop their<br />

skills and passion in<br />

film.<br />

“Delicious and<br />

satisfying!”<br />

CGHS aim for national cricket title<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE CHRISTCHURCH Girls’<br />

High School first XI cricket team<br />

will look to go one better when<br />

they compete in the Gillette<br />

Venus Cup national secondary<br />

schoolgirls competition.<br />

CGHS will represent Canterbury<br />

as one of six schools that<br />

will play a twenty20 competition<br />

in Christchurch from December<br />

6 to 8.<br />

Each of New Zealand’s six<br />

cricket districts are represented<br />

Otago, Canterbury, Central District’s<br />

Wellington, Auckland and<br />

Northern Districts.<br />

The team finished third in<br />

2017 and were runners-up in<br />

<strong>2019</strong>.<br />

The team had convincing wins<br />

over a Forward Foundation XI,<br />

Rangi Ruru and Burnside High<br />

School to qualify for the tournament.<br />

Last year they beat everyone<br />

except Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate<br />

and they will again have<br />

the potential to be the toughest<br />

opponents.<br />

CGHS coach Hannah Beatson<br />

said the two teams played each<br />

other in the first ever women’s<br />

match at The Willows a fortnight<br />

ago with the visitors once again<br />

coming out on top.<br />

“It was close and I think we are<br />

capable of turning it around.”<br />

Beatson also has a settled<br />

squad to call upon with only one<br />

new player this season.<br />

“Their work ethic and ability<br />

to show character and culture<br />

means they are a supportive unit.<br />

SPORT<br />

“I’m confident I have a team<br />

that can do the processes well<br />

and the results will come from<br />

that.”<br />

Left-arm quick Georgia Edge,<br />

who is contracted to the Canterbury<br />

Magicians, will be one to<br />

watch while Libby Stead and Lila<br />

Bradley are the spinners.<br />

In the batting, Grace Ansell,<br />

Casey Liddington, Joey Hull and<br />

BIG MOMENT:<br />

The Christchurch<br />

Girls’ High School<br />

first XI with their<br />

summer sports<br />

awards. The team<br />

will look to go one<br />

better this year at<br />

the Gillette Venus<br />

Cup national<br />

tournament at<br />

Christchurch next<br />

month. ​<br />

Lily Collier will shoulder much<br />

of the load.<br />

“We have to have the<br />

confidence to back ourselves,<br />

back our ability and put our<br />

body on the line when it is<br />

needed.’’<br />

Basketball’s best to play in all-star game<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE BEST secondary school<br />

basketball players in Canterbury<br />

will get their chance to impress<br />

in respective boys and girls<br />

all-star games before the New<br />

Zealand Breakers game at<br />

Horncastle Arena next month.<br />

St Thomas’ Tanae Lavery, Benji<br />

Freeman and Quinn Lavery,<br />

Middleton Grange’s Katie Jo Van<br />

Den Bogaert, Maia Williamson,<br />

Annabel Lapworth, Ah-Li<br />

Fenika, Ben Carlile-Smith, Trey<br />

Te Awa, Jimmer Williamson and<br />

Zach Hannen as well as Burnside’s<br />

Sila Morris will all take<br />

part in the games.<br />

The Breakers will host the<br />

South East Melbourne Phoenix<br />

on December 20.<br />

The girls game will tip off at<br />

2.10pm and the boys game will<br />

tip off at 3.50pm followed by the<br />

Breakers and Phoenix at 7.30pm.<br />

The high school games come<br />

after the Thomson and Whelan<br />

Trophy season as well as strong<br />

national campaigns where<br />

Cashmere High School finished<br />

fourth in the boys competition<br />

and Christchurch Girls’ High<br />

School finished eighth in the<br />

girls’ grade.<br />

Organiser, Joe Hammond said<br />

the plan was to split the squads<br />

into two even teams to produce<br />

two even encounters.<br />

He said squads were picked<br />

by the top six high school boys<br />

coaches and former Canterbury<br />

Wildcats coach Lori McDaniel.<br />

“It’s been a couple of years<br />

since the game was held, but I<br />

think it’s a great way to recognise<br />

the effort and achievements of<br />

the players throughout the season,”<br />

Mr Hammond said.<br />

There are also plans to<br />

livestream the two games.<br />

OPPORTUNITY: Middleton Grange players Trey<br />

Te Awa and Katie van den Bogaert will play in<br />

the Canterbury high school all-star game at<br />

Horncastle Arena on December 20. ​<br />

“The Breakers have said the<br />

team will try to watch the concluding<br />

stages of the games so<br />

hopefully it will give the kids a<br />

big buzz.’’<br />

upkeep as we do it all for you. Pets are also welcome, and you can even<br />

go away on holiday knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll<br />

also make sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that<br />

there won’t be any unexpected surprises.<br />

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something<br />

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and<br />

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.<br />

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means<br />

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of<br />

mind to continue living life to its fullest.<br />
