Path trialled to keep pupils safe

• By Matt Slaughter

AN INITIATIVE is being

trialled to reduce traffic outside

Aidanfield Christian School and

keep pupils safe.

A group of pupils want a

walking path built from the

school to the Nga Puna Wai

Sports Hub car park, where they

now get dropped off and picked

up in a bid to reduce congestion

outside the

school.

They have

make the idea

a reality.

On Friday,

the pupils

took part in a supervised trial

walk along a marked out path

to gauge interest in the idea.

Cr Galloway said the trail

was carried out to decide if a

permanent pathway is needed.

She said getting to and from

the school can be dangerous for

both pedestrians and motorists.

“It’s a safety issue for

everybody,” she said.

“It’s a safety issue for the

drive to that school, so there’s

the safety

“That

Malawi visit next year

•From page 1

He also received the Greatest

Individual Impact Award, for

almost single-handedly raising

$14,000 for World Vision.

“These awards highlight my

passion to help as well as the huge

amount of work that the school

has encouraged us to do over the

years to support World Vision,”

he said.

Said Izaac on raising the

$14,000: “I started to email celebrities

across the globe ranging

from Graham Norton, Ellen De-

Generes, multiple different actors

and celebrities overseas and also

many famous New Zealanders.”

Izaac did not get many responses

but heard back from

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern,

Nico Porteus, some All Blacks

and other New Zealand artists.

From there, he had the idea to

host an art auction, which raised

$12,000, he then door-knocked

and approached family members,

which raised another $2000.

Next year, Izaac will travel to

Malawi with four other World

Vision Ambassadors and see

where the funds from the 40hr

famine will go.

“This is a long way from home,

making it an exciting adventure

for myself and the other four

ambassadors going on the trip. I

feel excited but ready for the challenge,”

he said.

Once he returns from Malawi,

he will visit schools across the

country to assist with fundraising

for World Vision, and he said

one of his key goals is to increase

participation in the famine across

Christchurch.

“I feel so privileged and blessed

to be able to help World Vision

with its global work and to be

able to help it make a change is

something that will stick with me

forever,” he said.

HUMANITARIAN:

When Izaac

Wilson goes to

Malawi next year,

he will witness

first-hand the

work World

Vision does,

such as helping

communities

access clean

water.

TV star preps for Mars project

LARISSA WILSON is preparing

for the voyage of a lifetime: A

mission to Mars – or at least an

experience that comes close.

Last year, Miss Wilson starred

in New Zealand TV series, The

Great Kiwi Bake Off, a spin-off

of one of the United Kingdom’s

most popular shows, the Great

British Bake Off.

The Canterbury

University mechanical

engineering student wanted

to prove there was a science to

baking.

Now, her degree is taking

her to the Mars Desert Research

Station in Utah, United States,

where she

will spend two weeks

researching.

The station, owned and

operated by the Mars Society,

is a space analogue facility

supporting earth-based research

in pursuit of the technology,

operations and science required

for human space exploration.

Set in a Utah desert much

like the Mars surface, the

station offers opportunities for

field studies as they would be

conducted during an actual

space mission.

Said Miss Wilson: “I am

incredibly excited to take part

in a simulated Mars mission

with a crew of talented and

knowledgeable people from

MISSION: Former television baking programme star Larissa

Wilson will head to a Utah desert soon to take part in a Mars

research project.

around Australia.

“I have loved the idea of

space exploration and learning

about outer space since I was

a small child. I feel incredibly

honoured to have been

selected as part of Expedition

Boomerang and I’m eager to

experience what being an early

explorer of the red planet might

be like.

“Some of these projects will

require me to take on a lot of

new information and I hope to

learn about the application of a

range of fields of science such as

geology and human biology in

an ‘alien’ setting.

“I also hope to complete some

of my own research, possibly

in the realm of acoustics

engineering which is the field

in which I plan to work,” Miss

Wilson said.

•From page 1

Andrei Moore, who was only

one-year-old when Mr Mora

began on the board said he was

really excited to give back to a

community that had given him

so much.

“Halswell has been my

home for 28 years, I was

adopted from Romania when

I was a couple of weeks old

so instead of growing up in

Romania I got to grow up in a

wonderful place called Halswell,

and I believe I owe everything

to Halswell and the people

within it,” he said.

Mr Mora had a long list

of issues he wanted to

address before retiring from the

board.

“The South West Leisure

Centre, the Halswell Junction

Rd extension, getting issues

sorted out with the Yaldhurst

Village development, getting

the old Sockburn Service

Centre tidied up as well as

Sockburn Park, and sort out a

lot of reasonably minor issues

in Halswell such as crossings in

order to make pedestrian and

cyclist access in some of the new

developments better.”

Community board member

Andrei Moore

Helen Broughton, who

represents the Riccarton Ward,

was concerned none of Mr

Mora’s priorities focused on

Riccarton.

“We are off to a rocky start

really because I’m not prepared

to have Riccarton ignored,” she

said.

Ms Broughton said she

wanted to deal with the effects

of medium density zoning and

traffic congestion.

“Medium density zoning

promoted at 30 people per

hectare is tracking at 70 people

per hectare – far beyond

planners expectations.”

Entertainer honoured with local hero award

• By Matt Slaughter

KATHLEEN HOOD has spent 40

years putting smiles on the faces of

Christchurch’s elderly.

The 86-year-old entertains residents

at Middlepark Rest Home,

Upper Riccarton, Elmswood Retirement

Village, Bryndwr, and has

previously done so at The Princess

Margaret Hospital.

This volunteering work has

earned her a Kiwibank New Zealand

Local Hero of the Year Award,

which she and other Christchurch

local heroes will receive at a ceremony

on December 3.

Mrs Hood tells jokes, reads poetry

and runs a quiz each time she

visits retirement homes.

She said this brings joy to their

residents and the quizzes include

historic questions, which bring back

memories and often start nostalgic

conversations between them.

“It’s really good because the questions

I ask are relevant to their age

and their experiences in life. They

do really enjoy it.”

Mrs Hood said her favourite thing

about what she does and the reason

she has been doing it for so many

years is it brings happiness to people

who sometimes need it most.

“The best thing for me is giving

to these older people. Some of

them have had very lonely lives

and when they come into the rest

home they’re a wee bit nervous.

She said when she entertains

residents “there’s a lot of laughter, I

can even tell a few risque jokes and

they enjoy all that.”

Mrs Hood said not even health

issues were able to stop her volunteering

for long.

“I did have two challenges with

cancer but I have had surgery and

I’m really fine now, everything’s all

good.’’

She said she was back in front

of retirement home audiences “as

soon as I could get back behind the

wheel.”

Mrs Hood is proud to receive a

local hero award this year.

“I never ever expected it and

when it came everybody around

me, my family and my friends

were all saying well deserved. It’s

very humbling and it will be to be

among people who have done marvellous

things in the community on

the night of the awards.”

But Mrs Hood said winning

awards is not why she volunteers

her time.

“If you ask any volunteer, it’s not

for accolades or recognition, you

don’t do it for that, it’s just for the

love of doing it, I suppose.”

She hopes her efforts will inspire

her children, grandchildren and

great-grandchildren to volunteer in

their communities.

Cycling to school not what it used to be

• By Louis Day

IN THE late 1970s, up to 75 per

cent of students were making

their daily commute by bicycle to

some high schools.

However, new statistics from

the city council show few schools

had more than 10 per cent of

students cycling to school last

year.

While the city

council statistics

from 1979 showed

75 per cent of

Burnside High

students cycled to

school, last year

Phil

only seven per cent

were making the

trip by bicycle.

Holstein

Burnside High principal Phil

Holstein said the latest figures are

“sad but not surprising.”

“Looking at the nature of

the school’s location on a very

busy Memorial Ave/Greers

Rd intersection, the volume of

traffic is a significant part of that

[students cycling less]. I don’t

think parents think it is safe to

let their young children bike to

school,” he said.

The schools with more than

60 per cent of students cycling in

the 1970s were Cashmere High

(60 per cent), Christchurch Boys’

High (67 per cent), Christchurch

Girls’ High (64 per cent) and

Papanui High (73 per cent). But

last year, only 13 per cent of

Cashmere High students cycled

to school, while eight per cent of

Papanui High students did.

Out of 15 schools recently

surveyed, Christ’s College

had the highest proportion of

students cycling to school last

year with 34 per cent.

The second highest was CBHS

with 25 per cent. It also had

the second highest increase in

students cycling between 2016

and 2018 with a six per cent rise.

CGHS experienced the highest

rise with a 10 per cent increase to

15 per cent.

City councillor Sara Templeton

felt the increases had a lot to do

with the opening of the Uni-

Cycle route in 2016, which runs

adjacent to CBHS and CGHS.

“It’s the one thing that seems

to be the most different to the

other schools, it’s having a high

amenity cycleway right next

to it. Before I was elected as

a community board member

and a councillor, I was part of a

travel safe planning group at a

local school and we did lots of

surveying and lots of kids wanted

to bike to school and the key

thing that stopped them from

biking was the parents perception

of safety,” she said.

CBHS principal Nic Hill said

it is possible the Uni-Cycle route

has contributed to the rise. But

he also thought the growth

of cycling as a sport could be

number of students cycling

contributing to the

increase.

“Cycling is a

growing sport

here, we are

the national

champions here

two years in a

row. Cycling as a

Nic Hill

sport is on a rise

nationally and certainly at Boys’

High.”

However, CBHS and CGHS

are not the only schools located

next to a cycleway. Papanui High

sits next to the Northern Line

Cycleway and experienced a one

per cent decrease in students

cycling to school between 2016

and 2018.

“Polly and Chloe are very

accomplished pianists and

“The fact that these

young women are playing

current and future music

students.

“All credit to them, their

talent and their incredible

focus and drive.”

Big future for young filmmakers

• By Claire Booker

SELECTED HARDWARE

FREYA CHAMPION had acted

in one short film before her

fellow Christchurch Girls’ High

School classmates recruited her

for their media studies project.

But last week her talents were

recognised at the Ara School

Shorts Screen Festival, where she

was named best actress.

The film Lured was made by

CGHS students Louise Kim and

Georgie Baddeley, who created it

in their media studies class.

Freya played the leading role of

Liz, a young woman investigating

the sudden disappearance of

her best friend.

Louise, who lives in

Halswell, wrote the

script for the film

after researching

pseudo-religion

and finding

out about

multiple

historic

cult-related

murders.

Lured

was one of

19 films

showcased

at the

competition

final at The

Palms. The

short films

were screened

at Reading Cinemas.

Said Louise: “It was one of the

most exciting moments of my

life to have our film screened in

an actual cinema and having an

audience to watch it.”

Freya was surprised to take out

best actress, and said it was a real

honour.

Her passion for acting has

flourished over the past few

years as she has been involved

in theatre sports and small

productions.

“As I have only starred in one

other film, I wasn’t quite sure

what would tick the boxes for

the judges, so I was

pleasantly surprised to receive

the award,” she said. The 18-yearold

also has a passion for politics

and earlier this year attended the

Youth Parliament as the Youth

MP for Christchurch Central

Labour MP Duncan Webb. ​

Freya said the highlight of

being involved in the film was

working with her two best

friends.

“Georgie and Louise had a

great vision for the film, and

because of our friendship, we

were able to easily communicate

ideas and this allowed us to film

in a good environment,” she said.

Next year, Freya, Georgie and

Louise will go their separate

ways to study, but will

continue to develop their

skills and passion in

film.

“Delicious and

satisfying!”

CGHS aim for national cricket title

• By Jacob Page

THE CHRISTCHURCH Girls’

High School first XI cricket team

will look to go one better when

they compete in the Gillette

Venus Cup national secondary

schoolgirls competition.

CGHS will represent Canterbury

as one of six schools that

will play a twenty20 competition

in Christchurch from December

6 to 8.

Each of New Zealand’s six

cricket districts are represented

Otago, Canterbury, Central District’s

Wellington, Auckland and

Northern Districts.

The team finished third in

2017 and were runners-up in

2019.

The team had convincing wins

over a Forward Foundation XI,

Rangi Ruru and Burnside High

School to qualify for the tournament.

Last year they beat everyone

except Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate

and they will again have

the potential to be the toughest

opponents.

CGHS coach Hannah Beatson

said the two teams played each

other in the first ever women’s

match at The Willows a fortnight

ago with the visitors once again

coming out on top.

“It was close and I think we are

capable of turning it around.”

Beatson also has a settled

squad to call upon with only one

new player this season.

“Their work ethic and ability

to show character and culture

means they are a supportive unit.

SPORT

“I’m confident I have a team

that can do the processes well

and the results will come from

that.”

Left-arm quick Georgia Edge,

who is contracted to the Canterbury

Magicians, will be one to

watch while Libby Stead and Lila

Bradley are the spinners.

In the batting, Grace Ansell,

Casey Liddington, Joey Hull and

The Christchurch

Girls’ High School

first XI with their

summer sports

awards. The team

will look to go one

better this year at

the Gillette Venus

Cup national

tournament at

Christchurch next

month. ​

Lily Collier will shoulder much

of the load.

“We have to have the

confidence to back ourselves,

back our ability and put our

body on the line when it is

needed.’’

Basketball’s best to play in all-star game

• By Jacob Page

THE BEST secondary school

basketball players in Canterbury

will get their chance to impress

in respective boys and girls

all-star games before the New

Zealand Breakers game at

Horncastle Arena next month.

St Thomas’ Tanae Lavery, Benji

Freeman and Quinn Lavery,

Middleton Grange’s Katie Jo Van

Den Bogaert, Maia Williamson,

Annabel Lapworth, Ah-Li

Fenika, Ben Carlile-Smith, Trey

Te Awa, Jimmer Williamson and

Zach Hannen as well as Burnside’s

Sila Morris will all take

part in the games.

The Breakers will host the

South East Melbourne Phoenix

on December 20.

The girls game will tip off at

2.10pm and the boys game will

tip off at 3.50pm followed by the

Breakers and Phoenix at 7.30pm.

The high school games come

after the Thomson and Whelan

Trophy season as well as strong

national campaigns where

Cashmere High School finished

fourth in the boys competition

and Christchurch Girls’ High

School finished eighth in the

girls’ grade.

Organiser, Joe Hammond said

the plan was to split the squads

into two even teams to produce

two even encounters.

He said squads were picked

by the top six high school boys

coaches and former Canterbury

Wildcats coach Lori McDaniel.

“It’s been a couple of years

since the game was held, but I

think it’s a great way to recognise

the effort and achievements of

the players throughout the season,”

Mr Hammond said.

There are also plans to

livestream the two games.

OPPORTUNITY: Middleton Grange players Trey

Te Awa and Katie van den Bogaert will play in

the Canterbury high school all-star game at

Horncastle Arena on December 20. ​

“The Breakers have said the

team will try to watch the concluding

stages of the games so

hopefully it will give the kids a

big buzz.’’

you choose

When you move into a Summerset retirement village, you’re not just

moving house – you’re joining a vibrant and welcoming community

where you’ll feel completely at home.

At Summerset we put you at the heart of everything

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life

you choose.

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are

accessible, high-quality, and there are no worries about maintenance or

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

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

also make sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that

there won’t be any unexpected surprises.

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means

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

mind to continue living life to its fullest.

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across

26 villages around New Zealand. If you’re interested in Summerset for

villages to find out more.
