New-look

fronds to

return to

Anzac Drive

THE POPPIES at the Anzac

Drive/New Brighton Rd

intersection will soon be joined by

some familiar fronds.

Repurposed to honour the

Anzac story, the new-look fronds

at the intersection will align with

the Poppies over Gallipoli sculpture

on the corner of Anzac Drive

and Travis Rd.

The Anzac Fronds, originally

installed on Anzac Bridge, will sit

in the reserve on a corner of the

roundabout after being organised

into new forms.

The four, freestanding frond

stands, featuring the fronds which

were originally on the bridge light

poles, are expected to be installed

in their concrete bases by the end

of June.

The fronds, made of pre-weathered

steel, have been in storage for

several years.

In a precautionary step, workers

removed the original long art

pieces from the bridge following

the 2010-11 earthquakes.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairman Kelly Barber said

the artwork marks an important

period for residents.

“To many, the fronds symbolise

Aotearoa New Zealand and subtly

remind us to engage with our

past,” he said.

Public speaking trophy for Marian College

ACHIEVEMENT: Archbishop Paul Martin with Marian

College students who took out the top spot at a public

speaking competition across the Canterbury diocese. ​

MARIAN COLLEGE has

won the Bishop Lyons’ Shield

Competition for 2021.

The annual competition was

held at St Thomas’ College with

teams from the seven Catholic

secondary schools in the Canterbury

diocese competing in

public speaking events for the

coveted title.

While the Marian College

team had taken out some

early points including second

in impromptu speech, third in

the junior prepared speech and

first in senior prepared speech, it

wasn’t until the final events that

the students realised they might

just win the competition.

“We were in fourth place most

of the weekend, and then when

Valelia Taaso won the scripture

reading, suddenly we moved into

the top spot. It was then we realised,

if our religious questions

team got a placing, we would win

the shield,” student Taylor Fasi-

Fidow said.

“We felt the pressure going

into that,” Amy Williamson,

who was part of the religious

questions team said.

The religious questions participants

had studied hard over

the past month, learning about

interreligious dialogue which

they say ignited a renewed passion

for their faith and a fresh

perspective of what it means to

be Catholic in 2021.

“We prayed, a lot, going

into the competition,” student

Malaika Sequeira said.

“Praying just gave us this

oN sAle Now!

sense of calm as we went out to

compete.”

The team won the religious

questions competition, and the

Bishop Lyons’ Shield became

Marian College’s once again.

This is the fith time Marian

College has taken out the shield

since the competition’s inception

in 1945.

While the win was a great

achievement, the Bishop Lyons’

team insist it wasn’t what they

went there for.

“Going into the competition,

we weren’t thinking ‘we want to

win this,’ we were just excited

to meet other Catholic students

who share our faith, and we

spent most of the weekend cheering

other teams on,” Amy said.

“It was so great just meeting

other students and because it was

a public speaking competition,

no one was particularly shy and

we found it really easy to mix

and mingle with everyone.”

“What made this different to

other competitions where you’re

in it to win it, is the fact that we

really felt like we came to know

the other competitors – it was

like getting a little glimpse into

each other’s lives particularly

through the speech competitions,”

she said.

Amy Regenvanu, who was

part of the debate team, said the

experience has brought the participants

closer together in their

own friendships.

“Even within ourselves, we

were really cheering each other

on as we knew how much effort

we had each put into preparing

for our events. As a team, we

really were so positive and supportive

and we celebrated our

wins. We’ve become so much

closer.”

Scripture reader Valelia Taaso

said the camaraderie between

the schools was overwhelming.

“When I finished doing the

scripture reading, the girls came

up and sung a waiata. Then when

the results were announced,

Whaea and Taylor a performed

a haka and some others from

other schools joined in, including

my cousin who was MC for

St Thomas’. I was just speechless.

It was very emotional.”

For several of the team members,

participating in Bishop

Lyons was extra special as they

had mothers and siblings who

had also previously competed in

the competition.

“It’s cool we now become part

of that history.”

Musical therapy a way to support children

IN HER NEARLY three-decade

tenure as a musical therapist,

Julie Wylie reckons she’s

witnessed a miracle every single

day.

Music plays an integral part of

life at the Champion Centre in

Burwood – a non-profit organisation

providing early intervention

for babies and children with

disabilities, or born prematurely.

Looking back, she has seen

a child sing their first words,

take their first steps, and even

helped a four-year-old boy on the

autistic spectrum find his voice

through music.

But after 28 years, it is time for

Wylie to pass over the conductors’

baton.

“Every child I’ve met has

taught me so much. It’s not about

their limitations, but about how

children can fly musically,” she

said.

“When you allow them to find

their voice and let them be the

leader, they take you on the most

miraculous journey.”

The centre supports children

and their families with disabilities

or whose developmental

progress is at risk through its

early intervention programme at

Burwood Hospital.

Children with Down’s

syndrome and other genetic disorders,

cerebral palsy, epilepsy,

developmental dyspraxia, autism

spectrum disorder or brain injuries

were usually referred to the

centre by paediatricians.

During the 1990s, Wylie and

the centre’s speech-language

therapists studied how music

affected the brain and the wellbeing

of child and parent.

Neuroscience discoveries

showed elements of music

could be used in specific ways

to promote well-being and

regulation.

Said Wylie: “I started writing

and reflecting after every session,

then I came across an amazing

book on music and the mind and

I thought, ‘this is the beginning.’

I could see that music could

bring parent and child into synchronicity.”

When a child is in a calm,

regulated space, “then they can

learn.”

Music rhythm, melody, tune,

dynamics such as “loud or soft,”

music with a clear beginning,

middle and end, and the harmony

of instruments impacted

systems in the brain.

Depending on how they were

used, they can either contribute

to regulating or deregulating a

child’s systems.

“Music that has a steady beat,

close to a resting heart rate, encourages

lower parts of the brain

and the body to come into synch

and produce a feeling of calm,”

Wylie said.

Wylie referred to herself as

a conductor, not the leader.

Parents were the leaders as they

could carry on the music at

home.

And ever since music was

introduced to the Champion

Centre, children and parents

have flourished.

“Looking back, I have probably

seen a miracle every day,” she

said.

“There was one little boy on

the autistic spectrum, aged four.

He looked like an angel and

had the most incredible voice.

Nobody was seeing anything

cognitively, but music seemed to

make a remarkable impact on

him.

“This little boy has such strong

musicality. I asked his mother to

play him Mozart and he stood

with his ear to the radio.”

A parent could be full of grief,

but “something hilarious” could

happen during the music session.

“The parent then has a good

belly laugh and comments that

they haven’t laughed like that

since the baby was born,” Wylie

said.

“It’s a cathartic experience for

parent and child.”

Many graduates of the centre

who once used music as a form of

therapy have gone on to pursue it

either in their careers or through

study.

Graduate Thomas Eves is

now the chief trumpeter at the

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra,

and Jasmine Butcher was

studying music at university, she

said.

“Another boy, Rohan Soper,

aged 17, who was born premature,

has been learning percussion and

has sat an exam through Trinity

College,” Wylie said.

“India Neville, now 21, is

studying at a music academy in

Canada.”

‘I’ve done everything

I’ve been asked to and

wanted to do, and now

it’s time to bow out.’

– Julie Wylie

Just because Wylie was retiring

from the centre, it did not mean

she was saying goodbye to the

world of music forever.

She will continue to run her

music school, the Julie Wylie

Institute of Musical Play, and

educate the next generation of

therapists through the Postgraduate

Certificate in the Psychology

of Musical Play – a qualification

she developed.

“When I started at the

Champion Centre, I was crying

out, ‘please consider music.’ Now

wherever I go, people are singing

and using music,” she said.

“I’ve done everything I’ve been

asked to and wanted to do, and

now it’s time to bow out.”

LEST WE FORGET

ANZAC DAY

SUNDAY APRIL 25, 2021

Remembering our Anzacs

“The darkness, calm and chill of the early morning;

the sound of the single tap of the drum of the parade;

the emotionless faces of the catafalque guard, and

the mournful notes of Last Post sounded by a lone

bugler, combine to give a feeling of deep solemnity. It

is the intensity of the symbolism which contributes to

its powerful impact upon participants; indeed what

underlies its popularity. In a country with few public

rituals, the Dawn Service continues to provide a sense of

occasion as a meaningful ritual of remembrance.”

rsa.org.nz

Every year Anzac Day is observed on April 25 by

communities throughout New Zealand and Australia to

remember those who have served and those who lost

their lives in war. The term ANZAC is the acronym for

Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and was first

used in World War 1. These groups of soldiers back then

were known as ‘the Anzacs’.

Anzac commemorations may consist of one or more

ceremonies – one at dawn (timed to coincide with the

initial landings at Gallipoli by Australian troops who were

the first ashore) and/or one later in the morning. The

ceremonies are rich in tradition and generally begin with

a parade of returned servicemen and military personnel

followed by cadets, youth groups and local dignitaries.

War veterans, proudly sporting their medals lead the

Thursday 16th of April

parade, which leads to a local cenotaph or memorial gate

where the ceremony includes a service with hymns, laying

of wreaths, dedications, prayers and the Last Post played

on a bugle. Morning tea follows and allows people to share

memories and catch up with friends and neighbours.

Anzac Day was first observed by servicemen in 1916 to

mark the anniversary of New Zealand and Australian

soldiers landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. It soon

became a day where all New Zealanders and Australians

took time to remember the men and women who

perished in the Great War. In 1921, Anzac Day became an

official holiday and by 1922 it was declared a full public

holiday where shops, banks and hotels remained closed

for the day.

Symbol of remembrance

The red (or Flanders) poppy is a symbol of remembrance

and hope all over the world and, in some countries, is

worn on Armistice Day, however in New Zealand the red

poppy is commonly worn on Anzac Day. The first Poppy

Day appeal was on April 24 in 1922, where funds from

the sales of small and large silk poppies helped relieve

suffering in war-ravaged northern France. A paper version

of the poppy is now sold by the Royal New Zealand

Returned Services Association on Poppy Day to raise

awareness for Anzac Day and funds for returned soldiers

and their families and local communities.
