Community rallies to help<br />

brother of terror attack victim<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

BIRTHDAYS ARE always a<br />

difficult time for Zahid Ismail,<br />

as he faces the date without his<br />

twin brother Junaid, who was<br />

killed in the March 15 terror<br />

attack.<br />

This year<br />

the difficult<br />

day was made<br />

worse when<br />

a fire broke<br />

out at the<br />

Halswell<br />

home he and<br />

his family<br />

were about to<br />

Zahid Ismail<br />

move into.<br />

However, the community has<br />

rallied to support Ismail, who<br />

lives in Hornby, donating $9850<br />

over four weeks in a Givealittle<br />

fundraiser set up by his sister,<br />

a response that has astonished<br />

him.<br />

“I’m absolutely taken<br />

aback, even if we had received<br />

like $20, we would still have<br />

been just as taken aback,” he<br />

said.<br />

“Essentially anybody giving<br />

out of the kindness of their<br />

heart and their hard work is a<br />

big deal. We really appreciate<br />

every little bit.”<br />

Halswell expansion worries residents<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

CONCERNS OVER the<br />

expansion of Halswell were<br />

frequently raised in a survey<br />

about life in Christchurch’s<br />

fastest-growing suburb.<br />

Canterbury University’s<br />

Callum Prichard is part of a<br />

group of social work students<br />

conducting the survey, which<br />

has more than 100 responses<br />

so far.<br />

Although the survey is still<br />

open, he has noticed patterns<br />

coming through in the answers.<br />

“There are some really<br />

interesting fears around the<br />

expansion of Halswell,” Prichard<br />

said.<br />

Infrastructure problems are<br />

one example, with people saying<br />

roads in the area are struggling<br />

to deal with the traffic volume.<br />

City council data shows the<br />

Halswell Ward’s population<br />

increased by 34.3 per cent<br />

between 2013 and 2018, while<br />

Christchurch’s population<br />

increased by 8.9 per cent.<br />

By 2043, the population in<br />

Halswell is expected to grow<br />

by 137 per cent. Over the same<br />

period, the city’s population is<br />

expected to increase by 22 per<br />

cent.<br />

As well as addressing<br />

residents’ concerns, the survey<br />

also asked about people’s level of<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Are you worried about the expansion of Halswell?<br />

Email your views to fiona.ellis@starmedia.<br />

community connection to the<br />

area, whether they like living in<br />

Halswell and, if so, why?<br />

This showed what people<br />

enjoy about the area, such as its<br />

friendliness and the recreational<br />

use of Halswell Quarry, Prichard<br />

said.<br />

The students will deliver a<br />

presentation based on the survey<br />

results at the university later this<br />

month.<br />

It will account for a large<br />

portion of their grade in<br />

the second-year course on<br />

social work and community<br />

engagement. However, he hoped<br />

the Halswell community would<br />

also benefit from the survey.<br />

The presentation would<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

be sent to interested parties,<br />

including city council and the<br />

Halswell Community Hub, a<br />

group the students were in touch<br />

with.<br />

“Maybe it will help the<br />

Halswell community to<br />

appreciate their assets, but also<br />

spread awareness of the issues,”<br />

he said.<br />

In Brief<br />

NEW ELEVATOR FOR<br />

HUB HORNBY<br />

An elevator is being installed at<br />

the Hub Hornby mall to make<br />

it easier for people to access<br />

its rooftop parking from the<br />

Pak’nSave entrance. It will have<br />

the capacity to transport two or<br />

three trolleys. The opening date<br />

has not been set but the elevator is<br />

likely to be operational before the<br />

end of the year.<br />

ENTRANCE TO SCHOOL<br />

CLOSED OVER HOLIDAYS<br />

The main entrance to Merrin<br />

Primary School in Avonhead<br />

will be closed during the school<br />

holidays to complete trenching<br />

work at the front of the school.<br />

The Brookby Cres entrance will<br />

be open for people who need to<br />

access the school, such as those<br />

taking part in the Kelly Club<br />

holiday activities.<br />

BOARD TO BE BRIEFED<br />

OVER TREE CONCERNS<br />

Concerns around the removal of<br />

trees to make way for building<br />

developments has prompted<br />

the Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton<br />

Community Board to request a<br />

briefing on the issue from city<br />

council staff. A date has not been<br />

set for the joint briefing with the<br />

Spreydon-Cashmere Community<br />

Board, but city council staff<br />

intend to hold it in November.<br />

Faith key to overcoming the hardship<br />

• From page 1<br />

Since buying the Halswell<br />

property in April, they had been<br />

carrying out renovations and<br />

were nearly ready to make the<br />

shift when the fire broke out.<br />

“We were almost there-two<br />

days out from the contractor<br />

finishing.<br />

“It ended up doing a lot of<br />

damage, but the fire department<br />

got there in time to stop it engulfing<br />

the whole place.”<br />

A large hole in the floor was<br />

perhaps the worst of the damage,<br />

and the impact of the ash and<br />

soot permeating the entire house<br />

was also extensive.<br />

While the couple had house<br />

insurance, they had not yet organised<br />

content insurance.<br />

“After the fire, we were really,<br />

really taken aback-we knew we<br />

were in a bit of a situation.”<br />

They were now working to organise<br />

repairs and did not expect<br />

to move in for weeks, or even<br />

months.<br />

Meanwhile, they would continue<br />

to live with Ismail’s mother.<br />

The family owned the Springs<br />

Road Dairy, which his parents<br />

brought when he was a small<br />

child, he said.<br />

“We’ve been in this dairy as a<br />

family for 33 years.”<br />

He now helped out in the dairy<br />

in the evening after his regular<br />

at his new home has prevented him from moving in while<br />

repairs are made.<br />

job.<br />

“After [my brother] passed,<br />

myself and my wife took on a lot<br />

more responsibility.<br />

“We sort of contracted and<br />

stayed together as a family after<br />

my brother went. It changed our<br />

outlook and our plans, we were<br />

supporting one another.”<br />

This was not the only family<br />

tragedy he endured in 2019, with<br />

his baby daughter dying in Starship<br />

hospital in July of that year<br />

due to a critical heart condition.<br />

Faith was the key to overcoming<br />

the hardship of recent years,<br />

he said.<br />

“We’re very religious in terms<br />

of our outlook on life . . . it really<br />

gives us that platform to understand<br />

any sorry of adversity or<br />

grief that we have to undertake.”<br />

This year Ismail and his wife<br />

welcomed another baby daughter.<br />

“Thankfully, she’s completely<br />

healthy.”<br />

He hoped his next birthday<br />

would be spent peacefully in the<br />

family’s new home.<br />

Hornby centre delayed again<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

CONSTRUCTION of<br />

Hornby’s new $35.7 million<br />

centre has been delayed for a<br />

second time.<br />

The build is dependent on<br />

the arrival of 147 steel piles<br />

that were initially expected<br />

to be at the Kyle Park site by<br />

September, then <strong>October</strong>.<br />

The piles, which will weigh<br />

418 tonne, are now expected<br />

to arrive in November, said<br />

Nigel Cox, city council head of<br />

recreation, sports and events.<br />

“It appears there were<br />

global shipping issues before<br />

the pandemic, which the<br />

pandemic has exacerbated,”<br />

Cox said.<br />

The current shipping<br />

schedule showed the ship<br />

would arrive at Timaru Port<br />

from November 5 to 8.<br />

It will take a week for the<br />

steel to arrive in Hornby after<br />

leaving Timaru, he said.<br />

Currently the piles are in<br />

Noumea.<br />

However, the use of the<br />

centre, which will contain a<br />

pool and library, has been on<br />

residents’ minds.<br />

Submissions on the facilities<br />

WAITING: The steel piles needed to start building the multi-million dollar Hornby<br />

centre are not expected to arrive until November,<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

and activities the<br />

community would like<br />

to see at the new centre<br />

closed on Friday.<br />

A total of 173<br />

submissions had been<br />

received but that was<br />

likely to increase, Cox<br />

said.<br />

“We are aware of<br />

additional completed copies<br />

coming in through the library<br />

team, and anticipate<br />

some responses in the<br />

post.”<br />

An analysis<br />

of the responses<br />

would be presented<br />

to the Hornby-<br />

Halswell-Riccarton<br />

Community Board<br />

later this month.<br />

Board chairman Mike<br />

Mora said he appreciated<br />

Mike Mora<br />

the community demand for<br />

activities in the new centre.<br />

“It’s just a matter of what is a<br />

priority for the space.<br />

“There will be a demand<br />

for a lot of use and we’ve got<br />

to meet that with the spaces<br />

available.”<br />

The delays were frustrating<br />

but were being experienced<br />

A chance to jump on the world stage<br />

Ruby to<br />

take on the<br />

best skiers<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

RUBY HEWITT has been<br />

hitting the slopes since she was<br />

just three-years-old, and her<br />

hard work is set to pay off as she<br />

prepares to pit her skills against<br />

the world’s best young skiers.<br />

The 15-year-old has been<br />

chosen to compete at the 2022<br />

Freeride Junior World Championships<br />

in Europe.<br />

This will be the first taste of<br />

international competition for<br />

the Rangi Ruru student, who<br />

last month won the under-18<br />

women’s ski category at the New<br />

Zealand junior freeride nationals.<br />

Being selected to represent<br />

New Zealand in Europe came as<br />

a shock to her, because usually,<br />

those who were chosen were<br />

in their final year of the junior<br />

category.<br />

“Just to get there in this Covid<br />

world will be amazing,” she said.<br />

While competing in Europe,<br />

her aim was simply to make the<br />

most of the experience.<br />

Although she was not looking<br />

further into the future than this,<br />

she had no plan to hang up her<br />

skis.<br />

“Skiing will be a lifelong passion<br />

for me. I would love to juggle<br />

competing and a career.”<br />

She was drawn to compete in<br />

the sport because of the friendly<br />

atmosphere of the competitions,<br />

she said.<br />

“There is a really great group of<br />

girls who are all super supportive<br />

and fun.”<br />

The skiers she looked up to<br />

included New Zealanders Janina<br />

Kuzma, Jess Hotter, and Craig<br />

Murray, and Italian Arianna<br />

Tricomi.<br />

In spite of injuries and near<br />

misses, she believes a day on the<br />

snow is better than a day off it.<br />

that will compete in the extreme sports event in Europe next year.<br />

However, love of skiing was<br />

not instantaneous for Ruby.<br />

When she was first introduced to<br />

it, she “hated” the sport.<br />

She changed her mind after<br />

picking up on the enthusiasm of<br />

PASSION: Ruby<br />

Hewitt loves<br />

freeride skiing,<br />

although this<br />

was not the<br />

case when she<br />

first began the<br />

sport.<br />

those around her at the skifield<br />

near her family’s holiday home.<br />

“Skiing is one of our family<br />

sports but skiing with friends<br />

made it more fun and we had<br />

a great group of kids at Mt<br />

Olympus to push each other and<br />

improve,” Ruby said.<br />

Freeride skiing was her<br />

preferred style because of the<br />

creativity it allowed.<br />

“It’s not like in ski racing<br />

where you have a set path and<br />

turn between the gates. You have<br />

to choose your path and what<br />

you’re going to jump off and<br />

decide what trick you’re going to<br />

do in the air—it’s really fun.”<br />

Picking her route to follow was<br />

the most challenging part of the<br />

sport, because of the uncertainty<br />

of how it would work out, but<br />

was also the most rewarding<br />

when it went well.<br />

While in action, she had three<br />

key words on her mind: “focus,<br />

fluid and fast.”<br />

Term 3 Update<br />

37 Cunningham Pl, Halswell | Ph. 03 322 8735<br />

E. admin@oaklands.school.nz | www.oaklands.school.nz<br />

Term 3 in Kōmingo Year 5-6<br />

It has been a bit of a stop-start term with Christchurch, along with<br />

the rest of the nation, going into lockdown for a period of time<br />

during the term. Aside from our regular diet of literacy, numeracy<br />

and integrated learning, students have been involved in art and<br />

sport options. The popular kapa haka and choir have again<br />

proven to be Friday favourites. We asked students to identify their<br />

highlights for the term. Here is what some of them had to say.<br />

My highlight for this term was the Canterbury Primary Schools<br />

basketball tournament and winter sport. Winter sport was fun. I got in<br />

for hockey with my friend and I really enjoyed it. For basketball I trialed<br />

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

south west zones and got second. Then we went to Canterbury’s and<br />

got 8th. I really enjoyed basketball and winter sport. Another thing I<br />

enjoyed was arts rotation; I had a lot of fun in drama.<br />

- nā Kaiya<br />

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

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

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

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

thing I enjoyed was sports doing high jump, shot put, discus and sprints.<br />

- nā Lillie<br />

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

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

jump because I like to jump over the bar.<br />

- nā Alex<br />

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

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

because we are working on a piece from Rad Rhythm.<br />

- nā Emma<br />

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

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

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

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

- nā Poppy<br />

Week 9 in Rurutu Year 1-2<br />

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics<br />

(STEM)<br />

We have been starting our end of learning projects. We<br />

all opted in to different projects, involving technology/<br />

coding (2 teachers taking different projects), creating<br />

recycled art, creating an animal and habitat, or creating<br />

a solar system. These projects are based on what we<br />

have learnt so far in science, and provide a vehicle for<br />

students to show what they have learnt, and explore<br />

their chosen topic on a deeper level.<br />

Maths<br />

This week we have been continuing to work on position<br />

and orientation as well as revising shape. We have been<br />

looking at mazes as well as exploring 3D shapes.<br />

Literacy<br />

We have been busy writing letters. Some of us wrote<br />

thank you letters to friends, family and teachers, others<br />

got a head start on their Christmas letters to Santa.<br />

Sign Language<br />

We have been practicing our sign language and sharing<br />

this with people all over the school. The new entrants<br />

and rurutu met up on Thursday morning to show each<br />

other the NZSL songs we have been learning.<br />

Canterbury Chess Tournament<br />

Oaklands Te Kura o Ōwaka competed in this year’s Canterbury Interschool<br />

Chess Tournament. We had 7 teams competing across both the Year 1-6<br />

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

o Ōwaka students representing the school.<br />

Results: Well done to all our chess players that came along and enjoyed their<br />

day in the social grade having the opportunity to expand and improve their<br />

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

had a fun day and learned many new techniques and strategies. Well done to<br />

Griffin, Arham, River and Mahek for coming 15th overall.<br />

The Canterbury Chess Tournament was really fun. I wish I could go again.<br />

I learnt many new moves and techniques to help me get better at<br />

playing chess. I won one of my games and sadly lost the other three.<br />

Griffin Year 1-6 Grade B Captain<br />

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

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

Charlie.<br />

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

in 8th overall. Well done to Didi, Amelia, Marcus and Ryan.<br />

3rd Place in the Year 7-8 Intermediate Grade B Division<br />

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

Awesome work, Winston, Jesslyn, Matthew and Luke.<br />

The fences have finally gone!<br />

And finally.....the rebuild has come to an end.<br />

Earlier this week the last of the fencing was removed<br />

and the school rebuild has come to an end. Here are<br />

some photos of the new block named Tūpou - formally<br />

known as Rooms 12 & 13. A big thank you to Hann<br />

the amazing job they have done. The school looks<br />

fantastic.<br />

to offer.<br />

After an excellent result at the SW zone tournament,<br />

the Year 5-6 girls were back over to Pioneer Stadium<br />

for the Canterbury tournament. The competition was<br />

naturally tougher, and the girls were asked to dig deep<br />

into their energy reserves, and we are pleased to say<br />

that they represented Oaklands with great pride and<br />

determination.<br />

Finishing 2nd in their pool play saw the girls through to<br />

the top 8 playoffs, which is an awesome achievement.<br />

of the 18 teams competing, which is the highest we<br />

have ever placed with a Year 5-6 Girls’ team.<br />

Musical siblings in<br />

composer awards<br />

THOMAS AND Eva Bedggood<br />

have been playing music together<br />

since they were young children.<br />

And now they are sharing the<br />

experience of taking part in an<br />

award for young composers.<br />

The Canterbury University<br />

music students have been chosen<br />

for the NZSO Todd Corporation<br />

Young Composer Awards.<br />

The award gives them<br />

the opportunity to travel to<br />

Wellington next month and hear<br />

their compositions workshopped<br />

and performed by the New<br />

Zealand Symphony Orchestra.<br />

The works will also be recorded<br />

by RNZ Concert.<br />

They are two of the eight young<br />

composers from around New<br />

Zealand chosen to participate in<br />

the award this year.<br />

Thomas, 20, plays the violin<br />

and Eva, 18, plays the trumpet<br />

and piano.<br />

Thomas, who is in his<br />

fourth year of an honours degree<br />

in music, was selected for the<br />

same NZSO award last year,<br />

which inspired Eva, a first-year<br />

student, to enter for the first<br />

time.<br />

“I never imagined that I<br />

would get in because I’m pretty<br />

young and I don’t think they<br />

often have first years. It was<br />

EXPERIENCE: Thomas and<br />

Eva Bedggood have been<br />

playing music together since<br />

they were children.<br />

awesome to hear we’d both got in<br />

because now we get to have this<br />

experience together,” she said.<br />

The pair have different<br />

inspirations behind their<br />

compositions and their<br />

successful pieces are very<br />

distinct. Eva is interested in film<br />

scoring and finds inspiration in<br />

nature and history while Thomas<br />

says his ideas come from colours,<br />

light, stories and poetry.<br />

They will have an expert<br />

composer-mentor to help them<br />

through the process and their<br />

piece of music will be performed<br />

by the NZSO.<br />

Halswell Hornets pitcher<br />

Harrison Bruhns-Croy put<br />

some fast balls in during<br />

his team’s game against<br />

the Rolleston Razorbacks<br />

at the Halswell Fastball45<br />

softball tournament on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The Hornets were<br />

taking part in a preseason<br />

tournament at<br />

Halswell Domain, which<br />

attracted five women’s and<br />

seven men’s teams from<br />

Christchurch and Nelson.<br />

Fastball45 is a fast-paced<br />

softball tournament, where<br />

each game starts with two<br />

runners already on bases<br />

and lasts 45min, or four<br />

innings, which ever comes<br />

first.<br />

While fast-paced, the<br />

game is also tactical with a<br />

lot of bunts, hits and runs,<br />

and squeeze plays called<br />

by the coaches.<br />
