it and he wanted to get

involved.

Now the 18-year-old Halswell

a World Vision ambassador

for his dedication to the

organisation.

Izaac was presented with

Speeding

buses

put pupils

in danger

• By Matt Slaughter

SPEEDING BUSES in Bromley

are putting school pupils in

danger.

Keighleys Rd resident and

Bromley School teacher Cathy

Baker said she has seen buses in

the area reach about 60km/h in

50km/h zones.

“They are pretty fast and we

have a lot of children on bikes and

scooters.”

She said options need to

considered to slow the buses

down, which is why residents are

set to meet with the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board and city council staff today

at 5.30pm. Residents will also raise

the issue of buses travelling too

fast along Ruru Rd and Hay St,

near the Maces Rd bus depot.

Environment Canterbury,

which manages the Metro bus

service, will not be at the meeting.

However, ECan senior manager of

public transport Stewart Gibbon

said since 2016, it has received five

complaints about buses speeding

in the area.

“We are aware that some

residents have raised concerns

about the potential speed of heavy

vehicles in this area,” he said.

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

been working

with Halswell

Ward city

councillor

Anne

Galloway to

Anne

Galloway

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

parents trying to get in and out

of the school because the exits

and entrances to the school are

straight onto Aidanfield Drive.

Aidanfield Drive has become

a through-way for people from

Halswell Rd through to Wigram

Rd, so people speed along there.

“People from all over the city

drive to that school, so there’s

going to be an issue always with

cars unfortunately. It’s a very

congested area, it’s got lots of

entrances and exits. It’s quite a

complex situation.”

Cr Galloway said a pathway

from Nga Puna Wai to the

school could help to address

the safety

concerns

“That

could be an

opportunity

for that

dangerous

situation to

be remediated

along

Aidanfield

Drive.”

Principal

Mark Richardson said a

permanent pathway would get

vehicles off the road and pupils

moving.

“There’s a lot of traffic as

with any school, and it’s just

looking at providing parents

alternative ways of getting there

and particularly in the warmer

months. There are some great

opportunities to get out and

walk and be active,” he said.

“Anything that gets kids off

of screens and active is really

powerful as well.”

In Brief

ARMY EXERCISE

The New Zealand Defence Force

will be conducting an exercise

in the Port Hills area from today

until Friday. The exercise will

involve up to 120 personnel

from Burnham Military Camp

on a multi-night tramp. The

exercise will start at the Halswell

Quarry with overnight stops at

Mt Vernon, Taylors Mistake and

Godley Head, and will finish at

Sumnervale Reserve. For more

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 Halswell resident

entertains residents at Elmswood

Retirement Village and Middlepark

Rest Home 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.

“For me, it’s really good to be

kind of recognise the work that

I’ve put in over the last three

years,” he said.

“I’m actually really, really

looking forward to working

with Karolin, because she’s an

experienced chair, and working

with the community for the next

three years.”

He said his work ethic and

willingness to help people in the

community no matter how large

or small their issues may be is

one reason he was elected to the

role.

“I’ve always been available for

the community. I’ve worked on a

number of issues, even if it’s just

service requests and I’ve always

done my best to deliver for the

community.”

Man with bow

and arrow

sought after

lamb shot

• By Jess Gibson

POLICE WANT to know

whether reports of a man seen

carrying a bow and arrow on

the Port Hills are linked to an

incident involving a lamb being

shot with a crossbow bolt.

Two people were driving

on Summit Rd near Godley

Head Park when they found a

lamb with an arrow through the

front of its body on October 23 –

it was euthanised the following

day.

Following the incident, the

SPCA launched an investigation

and has since received a call

from someone who has seen a

man in the area carrying a bow

and arrow.

An SPCA spokeswoman

said the caller reported having

seen the man on “a couple of

occasions,” most recently at the

beginning of September.

The SPCA’s inspectorate

alerted police to the complaints.

•If you have any

information to report

regarding the incident,

phone the SPCA on 349

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 DeGeneres, multiple

different actors and celebrities

overseas and also many famous

New Zealanders.”

Izaac heard back from Prime

Minister Jacinda Ardern,

freestyle skier Nico Porteus, some

All Blacks and Kiwi 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

New Zealand to assist with

fundraising for World Vision,

and 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.

When Izaac

Wilson goes to

Malawi next year,

he will witness

first-hand the

work World

Vision does,

such as helping

communities

access clean

Big future for young filmmakers

• By Claire Booker

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.

short film, Lured,

for which Freya

won a ‘best

actress’ award.

Residents raise concerns

over speeding buses

•From page 1

Said Mr Gibbon: “Our

expectation is that drivers

operating Metro services drive

in a safe manner and comply

with all road rules.

“We understand the . . .

community board is considering

this issue currently. This is good

because if there is

an issue with the

speed of heavy

vehicles in the area,

the city council, as

the road controlling

authority, has the

ability to put in

place remedies.”

Go Bus South

Island regional

general manager

Ben Barlow could

not be reached for

comment on the

issue.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson said residents are

frustrated with the impact of

speeding buses.

“The complaint that residents

have had is that they’re [buses]

speeding and they’re causing a

lot of excessive vibrations and

they’re finding it really hard to

sleep at night. It’s quite often

early in the morning or late

at night. They’ve repeatedly

complained to ECan, Go Bus

Yani Johanson

and council, and they’re just not

satisfied that things have been

done.”

He said implementing heavy

vehicle restrictions on the

roads used by buses may be one

solution.

“We do need to put a heavy

vehicle restriction onto the

streets, and then before

that we need to also as a

community board write to

ECan just expressing our

concern.”

Said city council

operations transport

manager Steffan Thomas:

“[City council] staff do not

recommend heavy vehicle

restrictions for Hay St and

Ruru Rd because these

roads are intended to be

a through route linking

the arterial roads and

residential and industrial areas.

“Council is aware that some

residents may experience

vibrations when heavy vehicles

drive past. If problem locations

can be identified and reported

to council, staff can investigate

potential repairs to the road,” he

said.

Cr Johanson said bus drivers

should be encouraged to obey

the speed limit, particularly

when using streets near the

Maces Rd depot.

Farewell to St Anne’s

Reverend

of St Anne’s

Church in

St Martins

Ben Truman

writes about

the last

service at

the church

on November 3 after 97

years of being open

Anglicans started worshipping

in the suburb of St Martins 166

years ago in 1853.

This year, on November 3, 166

people showed up to farewell St

Anne’s Church.

God, it seems, has an eye for

detail.

St Anne’s Church sits on the

corner of Centaurus and Wilsons

Rds and has been part of

the community since 1922 with

various incarnations of buildings

over that time. The current

chapel building has been there

since 1959 and its distinctive

Rena Jarosewitach stained glass

cross since 1992.

In that time it has seen countless

baptisms, weddings, funerals,

dances, worship services,

and fairs as well as hosting

various community groups and

events.

There have certainly been

some interesting vicars at St

Anne’s. Reverend Simon Ballantyne

(1982-1998) performed

an annual stunt to advertise

the church fair including living

atop the belltower, being buried

alive, locking himself in a shipping

container, and sitting in

a BMW suspended by a crane.

Rev Michael Cocks (1964-

1970) dabbled in extra-sensory

perception. Reverends Chris

and Kate Carey-Smith hosted a

rafting competition in 2001 that

saw more than 70 rafts floating

down the Heathcote.

Unfortunately, numbers at

the church dwindled, and so in

2007, St Anne’s merged with the

neighbouring parish of Opawa.

It turned out to be a very useful

marriage because after the

earthquakes of 2011 St Mark’s

Opawa sustained significant

damage so the two congregations

have worshipped as one at

St Anne’s since then.

A decision has been made to

consolidate back to St Mark’s

Opawa. Repair work should

END OF AN ERA: After 97

years of being open, St

Anne’s Church in St Martins

had its last service on

November 3 before being

demolished.

start on St Mark’s in the new

year, and while the parish waits

for it to be completed, they will

be worshipping at St Mark’s

School in Cholmondeley Ave.

The designs for the repair of St

Mark’s Church includes a new

St Anne’s side chapel, which will

feature a number of the beautiful

items rescued from St Anne’s

including the altar and stained

glass window.

More details are on their website

www.opawastmartins.com

or on Facebook.

As for what is happening at St

Anne’s – it will be demolished,

along with the old vicarage next

door before the end of the year,

and we’ll let the new owners

share their story.

Young photographers praised

for capturing beauty of river

ZAC BOWIE has taken out

the top prize in The Ōpawaho

Heathcote River Network

photographic competition.

The West Spreydon School year

6 pupil won with his photos of

the Heathcote River. He received

a meal for two at the Gatherings

restaurant for his work.

The awards were presented

at a ceremony in the South

Library. The network organised

the event to mark World Rivers

Day and the photographs aimed

to highlight the beauty of the

Heathcote River.

The open division was a closely

fought contest, with the river and

its moods category shared by

Cora Scott and Raewyn Wright,

while Rātā Airey was highly

commended.

Corie James Hamilton won

the people and the river category

with his photo named Miss N

Swings, while Jonathon Harrod

was the runner-up.

dominated the prizes in the flora

and fauna category. Raewyn also

won the people’s choice award

which earned her a meal voucher

at restaurant and brewery The

Fermentist.

In the schools division, the

river, its shadows and radiancy

category was won by Charlotte

Cobley from West Spreydon

School, with Yasmin Thompson

from Heathcote Valley School

second and Max Eadie-Lilley,

also from West Spreydon School,

third.

Two pupils competed in the

photo essay category, with the

judges highlighting the excellent

clarity and composition of the

photos. Zac Bowie won the

section with his photo essay

on eels in the upper reaches

of the river. He set an eel trap

and composed each of his five

shots so they told a story about

native wildlife in the river. Zac’s

younger brother Duncan was the

runner-up.

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.

Cashmere’s Tom Webley, Finn

Barclay, Louis Oskam and Oki

Tilaia will all compete in the

boys game.

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

“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.’’
