Whirlwind week for<br />

talented teenager<br />

ANDREW’S<br />

COLLEGE<br />

It’s been a busy week for the multi-talented Sienna Stowers-Smith. On Sunday, she was co-captain of St<br />

Andrew’s College mixed touch team, which won the South Island secondary schools’ championship title. Two<br />

days before that, she was named to trial for the New Zealand secondary schools’ netball team for a second<br />

consecutive year. Stowers-Smith’s talents aren’t limited to the two sports either. The year 13 student played<br />

for the New Zealand Māori under-18 Ngā Māreikura sevens team at the world schools’ sevens tournament in<br />

December. • Read more about the netball and touch success on pages 7 & 8<br />

Smash<br />

and grab<br />

teens hit<br />

preschool<br />

teacher’s<br />

vehicle<br />

• By Daniel Alvey<br />

FIVE FLEEING teenagers who<br />

were involved in a smash-andgrab<br />

at Northlink Shopping<br />

Centre were arrested following a<br />

failed getaway attempt.<br />

The teenagers were fleeing from<br />

police after they had smashed<br />

the front doors and window of<br />

Noel Leeming at the Northlink<br />

Shopping Centre about 4.40am,<br />

where they were seen running<br />

into the store holding pillowcases.<br />

Police were informed of the<br />

suspected stolen vehicle in the<br />

Huntsbury area about 7.45am on<br />

Monday.<br />

When police responded, the<br />

occupants of the vehicle tried to<br />

flee, damaging a police vehicle<br />

and a Huntsbury Preschool<br />

teacher’s vehicle in the process.<br />

In a Facebook post, mums<br />

from the preschool have banded<br />

together and said they would pay<br />

for the insurance excess on the<br />

teacher’s car.<br />

A Huntsbury resident posted<br />

on Facebook on Monday he saw<br />

up to seven police cars at the<br />

scene and was told by police that<br />

one of the teenagers was 13.<br />

CHECK IT OUT: ‘The new store is very sharp,’ customer Kathryn told Rhys.<br />

Owner Stu,<br />

cutting the<br />

ribbon and<br />

reopening<br />

the store as<br />

FreshChoice<br />

Fendalton.<br />

A fresh new choice in Fendalton<br />

FRESHCHOICE Fendalton<br />

opened its new store on Ilam Rd<br />

this week.<br />

The former Supervalue<br />

Fendalton store has been<br />

refreshed with a new look and<br />

name.<br />

Store owner Stu said the<br />

supermarket is an integral part<br />

of the community.<br />

“We have proudly operated<br />

in Fendalton for over 13 years<br />

and during that time we have<br />

appreciated the loyalty and<br />

support of the local community.”<br />

After the February 22, 2011<br />

earthquake the store stayed<br />

open, providing a vital link to<br />

the community.<br />

“We were proud we were able<br />

to continue serving customers<br />

during that difficult time. While<br />

some of the faces may have<br />

changed since then, the team<br />

brings this same customer-first<br />

approach to everything they do,”<br />

said Stu.<br />

When the store is busy<br />

customers will often find<br />

the owners behind the till or<br />

working on the shop floor filling<br />

shelves.<br />

Store manager David has<br />

worked in the store for seven<br />

years. For the FreshChoice team<br />

it is all about collaboration and<br />

community, he said.<br />

“A caring, respectful working<br />

environment like this is hard to<br />

find, but working at FreshChoice<br />

Fendalton makes it easy to have<br />

pride in the work that I do.<br />

“We have some amazing fresh<br />

deals to celebrate our team<br />

joining the FreshChoice family,<br />

which shoppers will appreciate.<br />

Best of all, our customers will<br />

be greeted by the same friendly<br />

faces and excellent customer<br />

service that our store has always<br />

prided itself on.”<br />

• FreshChoice Fendalton is<br />

located at 376 Ilam Rd, and<br />

is open 7am-9pm every day.<br />

A word from Ilam MP<br />

Sarah<br />

Pallett<br />

I know things are tough right now<br />

for many Canterbury households. As<br />

a Government, we’re focused on the<br />

big issues that matter most to New<br />

Zealanders, like tackling the cost of<br />

living and supporting communities<br />

following the recent severe weather.<br />

We’ve announced a cost of living<br />

package that will support around<br />

1.4 million New Zealanders – with<br />

pensioners, students, parents, and<br />

those on main benefits receiving a<br />

boost to their income from the start of<br />

next month.<br />

Superannuation for people here in Ilam<br />

will rise from April 1, with a couple<br />

both aged over 65 receiving over $100<br />

more a fortnight, and a single person<br />

living alone receiving an extra $66.86<br />

each payment.<br />

We’re also boosting the student<br />

allowance and student loan living costs<br />

payments by around $20 each payment,<br />

to make everyday life more affordable<br />

for tertiary students.<br />

To support families, we’re boosting<br />

Working for Families, including<br />

increases to Best Start Payments,<br />

and increasing the eldest child rate<br />

for the Family Tax Credit. We’re also<br />

expanding childcare assistance, cutting<br />

costs for working parents.<br />

These measures build on the steps<br />

we’ve already taken to ease the pressure<br />

on Canterbury families, including<br />

increasing the minimum wage and<br />

cutting the cost of petrol and public<br />

transport.<br />

We’re also cancelling or delaying a suite<br />

of programmes, to free up funding and<br />

resources for where they’re needed<br />

most. These policy changes will help<br />

to provide greater bandwidth for the<br />

Government to ensure we’re doing all<br />

we can to support New Zealanders in<br />

the here and now.<br />

While these measures won’t solve<br />

everything, they are practical steps that<br />

we can take to support families in Ilam<br />

with the cost of living.<br />

Student<br />

Unity Week<br />

culminates<br />

in Al Noor<br />

mosque visit<br />

A STUDENT instigated Unity<br />

Week to foster connection and<br />

understanding around <strong>March</strong><br />

15 culminated in Rangi Ruru<br />

students visiting Al Noor<br />

mosque last week.<br />

At the gates of the mosque,<br />

school leaders, joined by their<br />

peers from St Margaret’s College,<br />

strung paperchains adorned<br />

with messages of kindness and<br />

unity written by hundreds of<br />

Rangi Ruru students, before an<br />

educational tour from mosque<br />

members.<br />

Unity Week was thought up<br />

by student head of well-being<br />

Shahd Khanafer to bring the<br />

student community together and<br />

commemorate the devastating<br />

2019 Christchurch terrorist<br />

attack.<br />

It included a moment of<br />

silence for the innocent victims<br />

of <strong>March</strong> 15; making the paper<br />

chain; playing a moving video<br />

message from a survivor of the<br />

attack about the importance<br />

of unity, and a pie-a-teacher<br />

fundraiser that raised more than<br />

$250 for Muslim youth charity<br />

The Nawawi Centre.<br />

Shahd said the mosque visit<br />

on Thursday was a chance to<br />

demonstrate the values of Unity<br />

Week. Students were given a<br />

tour by Sarah and Jumaya, learnt<br />

about the impact of <strong>March</strong> 15,<br />

and heard a call to prayer from<br />

an Imam.<br />

“It was so heart-warming to<br />

see the other students sit and listen<br />

to what was said about Islam<br />

and it made me feel so accepted,”<br />

said Shahd.<br />

“Hearing Jumaya and Sarah<br />

speak really allowed for all of us<br />

to learn more and even hearing<br />

a call to pray from an Imam was<br />

such a blessing.”<br />

Year 13 student Lucy Aitken<br />

was among the visitors, and said<br />

it was a moving and educational<br />

experience.<br />

“I learned so much about Islam<br />

and the values and traditions<br />

that are such a key part of their<br />

religion, such as Ramadan,<br />

prayer, the hijab and the Qur’an.<br />

It was particularly moving when<br />

Jumaya discussed the event<br />

of the mosque shooting, and<br />

how people reacted within the<br />

mosque.<br />

“It was an eye-opening<br />

experience and an amazing<br />

afternoon, full of wonderful<br />

people and knowledge outside of<br />

our own experiences, and I am<br />

so grateful to get the opportunity<br />

to learn about and experience the<br />

mosque and Islamic religion.”<br />

Shahd, who was supported by<br />

members of the school’s wellbeing<br />

council to bring Unity<br />

Week to life, said the week was<br />

a way to foster connection and<br />

understanding and celebrate<br />

what makes each member of the<br />

school whānau unique.<br />

“I hope that Unity Week allows<br />

for everyone to be themselves<br />

and to be willing to learn about<br />

others. I hope every student goes<br />

away from Unity Week feeling<br />

more connected, feeling more<br />

knowledgeable and closer with<br />

their peers.<br />

“I hope that we all learnt<br />

something new as being more<br />

united does really allow us to<br />

be a stronger, tighter whānau. I<br />

hope we continue to be united<br />

not only this year but for many<br />

years to come.”<br />

during<br />

Plan to bring lonely<br />

artists together<br />

CHRIS SMITH wants to bring<br />

like-minded artists together to<br />

share ideas, work on projects or<br />

just have a coffee and a chat.<br />

She took up acrylic painting<br />

when she retired during the<br />

Covid-19 pandemic.<br />

Her art has become her<br />

passion but she has found it to<br />

be an isolating activity. So Smith<br />

has called for people to form a<br />

group in Burnside.<br />

“I think it would be really<br />

fun if we were a mixed group<br />

of arts and crafts people like<br />

scrapbookers, painters, cardmakers,<br />

just anything really.<br />

“It would be great to see what<br />

everyone is up to and share our<br />

knowledge and abilities with<br />

each other.”<br />

Smith has attended a few art<br />

classes but they were expensive<br />

and she would rather spend<br />

money on paint and canvas.<br />

“I’d like to get a group of . . .<br />

arts and craft people together<br />

for weekly get-togethers, where<br />

each person can work on their<br />

own projects, similar to a class<br />

situation, or just turn up for a<br />

coffee and a chat.”<br />

Smith said her art has changed<br />

and evolved. She paints New<br />

Zealand landscapes and dabbles<br />

in fluid painting, but is trying<br />

to loosen up her style with some<br />

abstract works.<br />

“It’s all for fun,” she said.<br />

Talented netballers earn NZ schools trial<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

ST ANDREW’S Sienna Stowers-<br />

Smith and St Margaret’s Ivy<br />

Brown will trial for the New<br />

Zealand secondary schools’<br />

netball team next month<br />

after impressing at a national<br />

development camp.<br />

Brown will be trialing for<br />

the first time, while Stowers-<br />

Smith was named in last year’s<br />

secondary schools’ team.<br />

A pool of 90 participated in<br />

three national development<br />

camps in January, but only 24<br />

players were selected for a trial.<br />

Stowers-Smith and Brown<br />

are the only players from the<br />

Mainland region and two of the<br />

six South Island players.<br />

Stowers-Smith has played<br />

for the New Zealand under-18<br />

Māori Ngā Māreikura sevens<br />

team at the world schools’<br />

tournament, which took place<br />

in Auckland in December.<br />

Brown previously represented<br />

New Zealand in age-group<br />

basketball, playing at the FIBA<br />

under-16 Asia Cup last year.<br />

Stowers-Smith was also part<br />

of the Christchurch under-18<br />

netball team that won the<br />

national championships last<br />

year.<br />

After three years of Covid-19<br />

impacting international<br />

competition for secondary<br />

schools’ netball, the final squad<br />

will travel to Australia in June<br />

for an under-19 competition.<br />

CHANCE: St Andrew’s College netballer Sienna Stowers-Smith (C bib) and Ivy Brown (right) from St Margaret’s will be<br />

hoping to make the New Zealand secondary schools team.<br />

New Zealand secondary<br />

schools head coach Pelesa<br />

Semu said most players are new<br />

to the Netball New Zealand<br />

player pathway environment<br />

and the international exposure<br />

will be important leading up to<br />

the Netball World Youth Cup<br />

2025.<br />

“The NZSS team holds a<br />

special place in New Zealand<br />

netball history and the pinnacle<br />

for secondary school players<br />

around the country,” Semu said.<br />

“We can’t wait to see what<br />

these athletes will bring to the<br />

trials in what will be a good<br />

look into the future of our game<br />

in New Zealand.”<br />

Semu will be assisted by<br />

former Silver Fern Jo Morrison,<br />

who will observe and work<br />

with the 24 players during a<br />

three-day trial of fitness, skills<br />

and match play in Auckland<br />

from April 16-18.<br />

Masters team marched their<br />

way to success at the recent NZ<br />

<strong>March</strong>ing Championships, hosted<br />

by <strong>March</strong>ing Canterbury and<br />

held at Christchurch Arena.<br />

Smartly turned out in their<br />

crisp white jackets and blue and<br />

white tartan skirts, the 21-member<br />

team took first place in the<br />

display phase and were third<br />

champion team overall.<br />

Sirita Prior, who co-coaches the team<br />

with Noeline Kitto, says it was the closest<br />

result for champion team in five years,<br />

and “a very interesting competition with<br />

just <strong>30</strong> points between the first and third<br />

placegetters”.<br />

They were also the third-placed technical<br />

drill team.<br />

For their winning display march, the<br />

team received a trophy, with members<br />

also awarded badges and bars to place on<br />

their jackets.<br />

Eight teams from around New Zealand<br />

competed in the Masters division, four of<br />

them from Canterbury.<br />

The Pioneers of Canterbury Masters<br />

have enough members for two technical<br />

drill teams, and the second team, Pioneers<br />

of Canterbury Force, placed fifth in<br />

the technical drill phase.<br />

“It’s been said by some that you can’t<br />

coach two teams successfully, but we’ve<br />

proved them wrong. It’s also how you<br />

advertising<br />

Pioneers of Canterbury marching team and coaches Sirita Prior, left<br />

and Noeline Kitto, with their trophy front and centre.<br />

measure success which defines the season<br />

– awards aren’t what we prioritise but we<br />

appreciate them when they are received,”<br />

Sirita says.<br />

“We train both teams together as one<br />

team and they both receive the same<br />

attention.”<br />

Prior to the championships, the<br />

Pioneers of Canterbury were invited to<br />

showcase their display and technical<br />

marches at the Drill Dance Australia and<br />

<strong>March</strong>ing NZ Tattoo being held on the<br />

Gold Coast in July.<br />

“We asked the girls if they wanted to go<br />

and not one of them said ‘no’,” Sirita says.<br />

“They will have four weeks off from<br />

training before we prepare for Australia<br />

and then when we return we will be creating<br />

a whole new display and learning a<br />

new technical drill for next season, which<br />

starts in October,” Sirita says.<br />

The 2024 NZ <strong>March</strong>ing Championships<br />

will be held in Hamilton next <strong>March</strong>,<br />

hosted by <strong>March</strong>ing Waikato.

South Island title<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

ST ANDREW’S College’s<br />

mixed touch team have won the<br />

South Island secondary schools<br />

tournament after a dominant<br />

display at the weekend.<br />

They beat defending national<br />

champions Rolleston College<br />

8-7 in the final on Sunday to<br />

clinch the title. St Andrew’s team<br />

manager Alison Lomax said<br />

they made a strong start to the<br />

match, but Rolleston came back<br />

in the second half and managed<br />

to draw even with less than a<br />

minute to go.<br />

“STAC had the ball at the tap<br />

off and managed to keep possession<br />

and to set up a move to<br />

score a try in the last few seconds<br />

of the game to win 8-7,” Lomax<br />

said. “The large crowd was<br />

kept well entertained with this<br />

nail-biting finish and it was an<br />

excellent display of skills from<br />

both teams.”<br />

St Andrew’s finished the tournament<br />

with six wins and just<br />

one loss.<br />

Although they lost to<br />

Wakatipu High in pool play, St<br />

Andrew’s had the best points<br />

TEAM: St Andrew’s won the mixed touch final 8-7.<br />

differential with 51 over the two<br />

days, largely due to a big 23-1<br />

win against Invercargill’s Te<br />

Wharekura o Arowhenua.<br />

St Andrew’s mixed side<br />

finished fourth at last year’s New<br />

Zealand secondary schools’<br />

tournament and will be looking<br />

to continue their success at<br />

the Christchurch super touch<br />

competition in October.<br />

“The team has had limited<br />

game time on a Wednesday this<br />

term due to weather, despite<br />

this, the team have trained hard<br />

and followed the guidance and<br />

expertise of their coach Paul<br />

Harris,” Lomax said.<br />

The team members will spend<br />

the next two terms playing<br />

various winter sports before they<br />

reassemble in October for the<br />

New Zealand secondary schools’<br />

championship in Rotorua in<br />

December.<br />

St Bede’s College were the best<br />

Christchurch school in the boys’<br />

grade, finishing second after a<br />

final loss to Dunedin’s Kings<br />

High School. The only final<br />

played without a Christchurch<br />

school at the tournament was<br />

in the girls’ grade. Rangi Ruru<br />

finished fourth in the grade.<br />

No eggs? No problem, simply substitute<br />

Swapping in one<br />

ingredient for<br />

another can not only<br />

save your cake mixture,<br />

it can also reduce<br />

waste, write the good<br />

folk at Love Food Hate<br />

Waste<br />

WE LOVE using bananas and<br />

apples in creative ways,<br />

but did you<br />

know they<br />

can also<br />

be used<br />

as baking<br />

substitutes<br />

in place of<br />

eggs, butter,<br />

and yoghurt?<br />

This is especially<br />

handy if you often<br />

find partly eaten apples<br />

coming home inside lunch<br />

boxes. Chop them up and place<br />

in freezer bags until you have<br />

enough, then cook them up to<br />

make apple sauce. Stored in a<br />

container, it will last up to three<br />

days in the fridge or longer in<br />

the freezer.<br />

Use ¼ cup as a substitute for<br />

1 egg, or ½ cup of apple sauce<br />

instead of 1 cup of butter, and<br />

swap equal amounts for yoghurt.<br />

If it’s brown bananas you’re<br />

dealing with, half a large banana<br />

can be used instead of 1 egg,<br />

or 1 cup of mashed banana<br />

substituted for 1 cup of butter<br />

or yoghurt. Note that using<br />

ingredient substitutes may affect<br />

the texture and flavour.<br />

Here are more ideas for egg,<br />

butter, and yoghurt substitutes:<br />

What can I use instead of<br />

eggs?<br />

• To replace<br />

one<br />

egg, you can<br />

use:<br />

• Mayonnaise<br />

(left)<br />

– use 2 or 3<br />

tablespoons.<br />

• 1 teaspoon<br />

of baking soda<br />

plus 1 tablespoon<br />

of white<br />

vinegar.<br />

• Ground<br />

flaxseed – mix 1<br />

tablespoon of ground<br />

flaxseed with 3 tablespoons<br />

of cold water, stir then leave to<br />

stand for 10 minutes to thicken.<br />

• Whole chia seeds – mix 1<br />

tablespoon of whole chia seeds<br />

with 3 tablespoons of cold water,<br />

stir, then leave to stand for 10<br />

minutes to thicken.<br />

• Silken tofu – use ¼ cup of<br />

silken tofu, blended.<br />

• Aquafaba (chickpea brine)<br />

– use 2 tablespoons of aquafaba<br />

instead of 1 egg white or 3<br />

tablespoons for 1 whole egg.<br />

• For glazing, in place of an egg<br />

wash, milk also works or heated<br />

apricot jam brushed over the<br />

cooked bread or pastry.<br />

• For breading, a mix of cornstarch<br />

or cornflour and water<br />

can work before coating with<br />

breadcrumbs.<br />

What can I use instead of<br />

butter?<br />

Here is a general guide for the<br />

ratio of butter : substitute.<br />

• Avocado 1:1<br />

• Coconut oil 1:1<br />

• Pumpkin puree 1:¾ (Pureed<br />

squash, butternut, and<br />

sometimes kumara can also be<br />

used)<br />

• Olive and vegetable oil 1:¾<br />

• Applesauce 1:½<br />

• Nut butters 1:1 (but use half<br />

nut butter and half oil)<br />

What can I use instead of<br />

yoghurt?<br />

Sour cream, silken tofu,<br />

coconut yoghurt or cream/milk<br />

all make great substitutes for<br />

yoghurt and work using a 1:1<br />

ratio!<br />

Chocolate mayonnaise<br />

cake<br />

Want to try out a classic<br />

dessert using an ingredient<br />

substitute? Give this decadent<br />

chocolate cake, which uses<br />

mayonnaise instead of egg, a go!<br />

Ingredients<br />

2 cups flour<br />

1 cup sugar<br />

2 tsp baking soda<br />

½ cup cocoa powder<br />

SWAP: This decadent chocolate cake uses mayonnaise<br />

instead of egg.<br />

PHOTOS: GETTY, GEL LIM/ODT<br />

1 cup water or cooled black<br />

coffee<br />

1 cup mayonnaise<br />

1 tsp vanilla extract<br />

Directions<br />

Heat oven to 175 deg C/155 deg<br />

C fan bake. Prepare a 20cm cake<br />

tin or baking dish by greasing it<br />

or lining with baking paper.<br />

Sift the dry ingredients into<br />

a bowl, mix using a whisk then<br />

make a well in the centre.<br />

Add remaining ingredients<br />

and mix until just combined.<br />

Pour into the prepared tin and<br />

bake for 50-55 minutes or until<br />

a skewer inserted in the middle<br />

comes out clean.<br />

Remove from the oven and<br />

leave to cool for 5 minutes before<br />

removing from the tin. Cool<br />

completely if icing.<br />

LEGAL SUPPORT ON PAPANUI’S<br />

DOORSTEP AND BY YOUR SIDE<br />

People in the northwestern areas of Christchurch<br />

are benefitting from the opening of a new branch<br />

in Papanui for prominent law firm, Saunders & Co.<br />

SOPHIE LESTER<br />

ASSOCIATE<br />

ESTATES AND<br />

SUCCESSION PLANNING<br />

The firm’s new premises in the recently<br />

renovated building at 7 Winston Ave<br />

provides a welcoming and modern<br />

environment following their merger with<br />

Bishopdale Law in 2022, which saw<br />

Richard Sprott’s practice and staff<br />

amalgamating with Saunders & Co to<br />

extend trusted legal support to a wider<br />

area of the city and region.<br />

Among those staff is Sophie Lester, who<br />

runs the firm’s estate planning, estate<br />

administration and trust work team.<br />

Sophie and her team are passionate about<br />

providing specialist, thorough and practical<br />

advice to ensure clients are educated in the<br />

implications of their wishes for Will drafting<br />

and Enduring Powers of Attorney.<br />

The team also has a breadth of experience<br />

in estate administration, and pride<br />

themselves in handling even the most<br />

complex of matters with empathy and a<br />

people-focused approach.<br />

Having witnessed their fair share of family<br />

disputes and complications arising from<br />

situations where estate planning was<br />

not done to a high standard, the team at<br />

Saunders & Co Papanui strive to do best by<br />

their clients to prevent unnecessary stress<br />

to bereaved families at a time of grief<br />

and stress.<br />

Common situations the estate team deals<br />

with include helping clients through<br />

misconceptions over what happens during<br />

estate administration (American movies<br />

present a reality that’s far from the truth),<br />

helping families with how to structure their<br />

estates for the benefit of their young<br />

children, and providing advice as to<br />

residential care subsidy applications<br />

and entitlements. They are also well<br />

versed in structuring affairs for clients of<br />

a blended family, where there is a lot of<br />

room for error.<br />

The team’s practical approach means<br />

that clients end up with Wills which are<br />

well thought out, future-proofed and<br />

appropriate for their circumstances. While<br />

people cannot ‘rule from the grave’ having<br />

appropriate estate planning documents in<br />

place is the best way to ensure your wishes<br />

are recognised in the event of your death.<br />

As well as their new Papanui branch,<br />

Saunders & Co offer extensive experience<br />

and expertise for a wide range of legal<br />

needs from three other key locations<br />

across the city – their city branch in Victoria<br />

Street, and at Wigram and Ferrymead.<br />
