Community rallies to help

brother of terror attack victim

• By Fiona Ellis

BIRTHDAYS ARE always a

difficult time for Zahid Ismail,

as he faces the date without his

twin brother Junaid, who was

killed in the March 15 terror

attack.

This year

the difficult

day was made

worse when

a fire broke

out at the

Halswell

home he and

his family

were about to

Zahid Ismail

move into.

However, the community has

rallied to support Ismail, who

lives in Hornby, donating $9850

over four weeks in a Givealittle

fundraiser set up by his sister,

a response that has astonished

him.

“I’m absolutely taken

aback, even if we had received

like $20, we would still have

been just as taken aback,” he

said.

“Essentially anybody giving

out of the kindness of their

heart and their hard work is a

big deal. We really appreciate

every little bit.”

REMEMBERED: The death of Junaid Ismail in the 2019 terrorist attack makes birthdays a difficult time for his twin brother.

Halswell expansion worries residents

• By Fiona Ellis

CONCERNS OVER the

expansion of Halswell were

frequently raised in a survey

about life in Christchurch’s

fastest-growing suburb.

Canterbury University’s

Callum Prichard is part of a

group of social work students

conducting the survey, which

has more than 100 responses

so far.

Although the survey is still

open, he has noticed patterns

coming through in the answers.

“There are some really

interesting fears around the

expansion of Halswell,” Prichard

said.

Infrastructure problems are

one example, with people saying

roads in the area are struggling

to deal with the traffic volume.

City council data shows the

Halswell Ward’s population

increased by 34.3 per cent

between 2013 and 2018, while

Christchurch’s population

increased by 8.9 per cent.

By 2043, the population in

Halswell is expected to grow

by 137 per cent. Over the same

period, the city’s population is

expected to increase by 22 per

cent.

As well as addressing

residents’ concerns, the survey

also asked about people’s level of

community connection to the

area, whether they like living in

Halswell and, if so, why?

This showed what people

enjoy about the area, such as its

friendliness and the recreational

use of Halswell Quarry, Prichard

said.

The students will deliver a

presentation based on the survey

results at the university later this

month.

It will account for a large

portion of their grade in

the second-year course on

social work and community

engagement. However, he hoped

the Halswell community would

also benefit from the survey.

The presentation would

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

be sent to interested parties,

including city council and the

Halswell Community Hub, a

group the students were in touch

with.

“Maybe it will help the

Halswell community to

appreciate their assets, but also

spread awareness of the issues,”

he said.

In Brief

NEW ELEVATOR FOR

HUB HORNBY

An elevator is being installed at

the Hub Hornby mall to make

it easier for people to access

its rooftop parking from the

Pak’nSave entrance. It will have

the capacity to transport two or

three trolleys. The opening date

has not been set but the elevator is

likely to be operational before the

end of the year.

ENTRANCE TO SCHOOL

CLOSED OVER HOLIDAYS

The main entrance to Merrin

Primary School in Avonhead

will be closed during the school

holidays to complete trenching

work at the front of the school.

The Brookby Cres entrance will

be open for people who need to

access the school, such as those

taking part in the Kelly Club

holiday activities.

BOARD TO BE BRIEFED

OVER TREE CONCERNS

Concerns around the removal of

trees to make way for building

developments has prompted

the Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton

Community Board to request a

briefing on the issue from city

council staff. A date has not been

set for the joint briefing with the

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board, but city council staff

intend to hold it in November.

Faith key to overcoming the hardship

• From page 1

Since buying the Halswell

property in April, they had been

carrying out renovations and

were nearly ready to make the

shift when the fire broke out.

“We were almost there-two

days out from the contractor

finishing.

“It ended up doing a lot of

damage, but the fire department

got there in time to stop it engulfing

the whole place.”

A large hole in the floor was

perhaps the worst of the damage,

and the impact of the ash and

soot permeating the entire house

was also extensive.

While the couple had house

insurance, they had not yet organised

content insurance.

“After the fire, we were really,

really taken aback-we knew we

were in a bit of a situation.”

They were now working to organise

repairs and did not expect

to move in for weeks, or even

months.

Meanwhile, they would continue

to live with Ismail’s mother.

The family owned the Springs

Road Dairy, which his parents

brought when he was a small

child, he said.

“We’ve been in this dairy as a

family for 33 years.”

He now helped out in the dairy

in the evening after his regular

job.

“After [my brother] passed,

myself and my wife took on a lot

more responsibility.

“We sort of contracted and

stayed together as a family after

my brother went. It changed our

outlook and our plans, we were

supporting one another.”

This was not the only family

tragedy he endured in 2019, with

his baby daughter dying in Starship

hospital in July of that year

due to a critical heart condition.

Faith was the key to overcoming

the hardship of recent years,

he said.

“We’re very religious in terms

of our outlook on life . . . it really

gives us that platform to understand

any sorry of adversity or

grief that we have to undertake.”

This year Ismail and his wife

welcomed another baby daughter.

“Thankfully, she’s completely

healthy.”

He hoped his next birthday

would be spent peacefully in the

family’s new home.

Hornby centre delayed again

• By Fiona Ellis

CONSTRUCTION of

Hornby’s new $35.7 million

centre has been delayed for a

second time.

The build is dependent on

the arrival of 147 steel piles

that were initially expected

to be at the Kyle Park site by

September, then October.

The piles, which will weigh

418 tonne, are now expected

to arrive in November, said

Nigel Cox, city council head of

recreation, sports and events.

“It appears there were

global shipping issues before

the pandemic, which the

pandemic has exacerbated,”

Cox said.

The current shipping

schedule showed the ship

would arrive at Timaru Port

from November 5 to 8.

It will take a week for the

steel to arrive in Hornby after

leaving Timaru, he said.

Currently the piles are in

Noumea.

However, the use of the

centre, which will contain a

pool and library, has been on

residents’ minds.

Submissions on the facilities

WAITING: The steel piles needed to start building the multi-million dollar Hornby

centre are not expected to arrive until November,

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

and activities the

community would like

to see at the new centre

closed on Friday.

A total of 173

submissions had been

received but that was

likely to increase, Cox

said.

“We are aware of

additional completed copies

coming in through the library

team, and anticipate

some responses in the

post.”

An analysis

of the responses

would be presented

to the Hornby-

Halswell-Riccarton

Community Board

later this month.

Board chairman Mike

Mora said he appreciated

Mike Mora

the community demand for

activities in the new centre.

“It’s just a matter of what is a

priority for the space.

“There will be a demand

for a lot of use and we’ve got

to meet that with the spaces

available.”

The delays were frustrating

but were being experienced

throughout the world, Mora

said.

A chance to jump on the world stage

Ruby to

take on the

best skiers

• By Fiona Ellis

RUBY HEWITT has been

hitting the slopes since she was

just three-years-old, and her

hard work is set to pay off as she

prepares to pit her skills against

the world’s best young skiers.

The 15-year-old has been

chosen to compete at the 2022

Freeride Junior World Championships

in Europe.

This will be the first taste of

international competition for

the Rangi Ruru student, who

last month won the under-18

women’s ski category at the New

Zealand junior freeride nationals.

Being selected to represent

New Zealand in Europe came as

a shock to her, because usually,

those who were chosen were

in their final year of the junior

category.

“Just to get there in this Covid

world will be amazing,” she said.

While competing in Europe,

her aim was simply to make the

most of the experience.

Although she was not looking

further into the future than this,

she had no plan to hang up her

skis.

“Skiing will be a lifelong passion

for me. I would love to juggle

competing and a career.”

She was drawn to compete in

the sport because of the friendly

atmosphere of the competitions,

she said.

“There is a really great group of

girls who are all super supportive

and fun.”

The skiers she looked up to

included New Zealanders Janina

Kuzma, Jess Hotter, and Craig

Murray, and Italian Arianna

Tricomi.

In spite of injuries and near

misses, she believes a day on the

snow is better than a day off it.

AIRBORNE: Rangi Ruru Girls’ School year 11 student, Ruby Hewitt, 15, has been named in the New Zealand freeride team

that will compete in the extreme sports event in Europe next year.

However, love of skiing was

not instantaneous for Ruby.

When she was first introduced to

it, she “hated” the sport.

She changed her mind after

picking up on the enthusiasm of

those around her at the skifield

near her family’s holiday home.

“Skiing is one of our family

sports but skiing with friends

made it more fun and we had

a great group of kids at Mt

Olympus to push each other and

improve,” Ruby said.

Freeride skiing was her

preferred style because of the

creativity it allowed.

“It’s not like in ski racing

where you have a set path and

turn between the gates. You have

to choose your path and what

you’re going to jump off and

decide what trick you’re going to

do in the air—it’s really fun.”

Picking her route to follow was

the most challenging part of the

sport, because of the uncertainty

of how it would work out, but

was also the most rewarding

when it went well.

While in action, she had three

key words on her mind: “focus,

fluid and fast.”

Term 3 in Kōmingo Year 5-6

It has been a bit of a stop-start term with Christchurch, along with

the rest of the nation, going into lockdown for a period of time

during the term. Aside from our regular diet of literacy, numeracy

and integrated learning, students have been involved in art and

sport options. The popular kapa haka and choir have again

proven to be Friday favourites. We asked students to identify their

highlights for the term. Here is what some of them had to say.

My highlight for this term was the Canterbury Primary Schools

basketball tournament and winter sport. Winter sport was fun. I got in

for hockey with my friend and I really enjoyed it. For basketball I trialed

for the South West Girl’s team. I got into the team and we went to the

south west zones and got second. Then we went to Canterbury’s and

got 8th. I really enjoyed basketball and winter sport. Another thing I

enjoyed was arts rotation; I had a lot of fun in drama.

- nā Kaiya

My highlight for this term is the silhouette art. I really enjoyed creating a piece of art that was all about things

that represented me such as me, my friends and much more. I also enjoyed doing rad rhythm with Mr Hillary.

Another thing I liked doing was the writing test. I wrote about a girl named Missy who kept seeing faces in

paintings, hearing strange noises and things were disappearing normally, stuff she really needed. The last

thing I enjoyed was sports doing high jump, shot put, discus and sprints.

- nā Lillie

My highlight this term was silhouette art because I like to do art. I also enjoyed the arts rotation. I got to do

drama this term. My favourite part of drama was when we played experts. Something else I liked was high

jump because I like to jump over the bar.

- nā Alex

A highlight for me this term was doing silhouette art because I have enjoyed drawing things that represent me.

Also I have enjoyed doing sprints and the funny relays like bear crawl. Another of my highlights is drums

because we are working on a piece from Rad Rhythm.

- nā Emma

Something that I have really enjoyed this term was: when we would put marbles in the jar, and if we got it full,

we got free time. Also I have enjoyed doing art, drama and drums; doing sprints, relays, high jump and discus.

I also really enjoyed doing the mufti day on 24th of September which was when we wore mufti to school and

brought a gold coin donation. A highlight was also when I tried out for the netball team.

Week 9 in Rurutu Year 1-2

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

(STEM)

We have been starting our end of learning projects. We

all opted in to different projects, involving technology/

coding (2 teachers taking different projects), creating

recycled art, creating an animal and habitat, or creating

a solar system. These projects are based on what we

have learnt so far in science, and provide a vehicle for

students to show what they have learnt, and explore

their chosen topic on a deeper level.

Maths

This week we have been continuing to work on position

and orientation as well as revising shape. We have been

looking at mazes as well as exploring 3D shapes.

Literacy

We have been busy writing letters. Some of us wrote

thank you letters to friends, family and teachers, others

got a head start on their Christmas letters to Santa.

Sign Language

We have been practicing our sign language and sharing

this with people all over the school. The new entrants

and rurutu met up on Thursday morning to show each

other the NZSL songs we have been learning.

Canterbury Chess Tournament

Oaklands Te Kura o Ōwaka competed in this year’s Canterbury Interschool

Chess Tournament. We had 7 teams competing across both the Year 1-6

divisions and the Year 7-8 divisions. In total there were 28 Oaklands Te Kura

o Ōwaka students representing the school.

Results: Well done to all our chess players that came along and enjoyed their

day in the social grade having the opportunity to expand and improve their

chess skills against all the other schools that were there. The Year 1-6 B grade

had a fun day and learned many new techniques and strategies. Well done to

Griffin, Arham, River and Mahek for coming 15th overall.

The Canterbury Chess Tournament was really fun. I wish I could go again.

I learnt many new moves and techniques to help me get better at

playing chess. I won one of my games and sadly lost the other three.

Griffin Year 1-6 Grade B Captain

The Year 7-8 Grade A division did well, winning some of their games and

ending 9th overall in the standings. Well done to Patrick, Lukas, Jaydeep and

Charlie.

The Year 1-6 Grade A team did well winning many of their games and coming

in 8th overall. Well done to Didi, Amelia, Marcus and Ryan.

3rd Place in the Year 7-8 Intermediate Grade B Division

Congratulations to The Year 7-8 Grade B team for coming in 3rd place!

Awesome work, Winston, Jesslyn, Matthew and Luke.

The fences have finally gone!

And finally.....the rebuild has come to an end.

Earlier this week the last of the fencing was removed

and the school rebuild has come to an end. Here are

some photos of the new block named Tūpou - formally

known as Rooms 12 & 13. A big thank you to Hann

Construction and also to Site Manager Jason for

the amazing job they have done. The school looks

Musical siblings in

composer awards

THOMAS AND Eva Bedggood

have been playing music together

since they were young children.

And now they are sharing the

experience of taking part in an

award for young composers.

The Canterbury University

music students have been chosen

for the NZSO Todd Corporation

Young Composer Awards.

The award gives them

the opportunity to travel to

Wellington next month and hear

their compositions workshopped

and performed by the New

Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

The works will also be recorded

by RNZ Concert.

They are two of the eight young

composers from around New

Zealand chosen to participate in

the award this year.

Thomas, 20, plays the violin

and Eva, 18, plays the trumpet

and piano.

Thomas, who is in his

fourth year of an honours degree

in music, was selected for the

same NZSO award last year,

which inspired Eva, a first-year

student, to enter for the first

time.

“I never imagined that I

would get in because I’m pretty

young and I don’t think they

often have first years. It was

EXPERIENCE: Thomas and

Eva Bedggood have been

playing music together since

they were children.

awesome to hear we’d both got in

because now we get to have this

experience together,” she said.

The pair have different

inspirations behind their

compositions and their

successful pieces are very

distinct. Eva is interested in film

scoring and finds inspiration in

nature and history while Thomas

says his ideas come from colours,

light, stories and poetry.

They will have an expert

composer-mentor to help them

through the process and their

piece of music will be performed

by the NZSO.

fast balls in

pre-season

tournament

Halswell Hornets pitcher

Harrison Bruhns-Croy put

some fast balls in during

his team’s game against

the Rolleston Razorbacks

at the Halswell Fastball45

softball tournament on

Saturday.

The Hornets were

taking part in a preseason

tournament at

Halswell Domain, which

attracted five women’s and

seven men’s teams from

Christchurch and Nelson.

Fastball45 is a fast-paced

softball tournament, where

each game starts with two

runners already on bases

and lasts 45min, or four

innings, which ever comes

first.

While fast-paced, the

game is also tactical with a

lot of bunts, hits and runs,

and squeeze plays called

by the coaches.
