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 page 6<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 />

Canty marching team<br />

displays winning style<br />

The Pioneers of Canterbury<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.

Stepping Back in<br />

Time - Year 1-3<br />

students visit<br />

Ferrymead.<br />

For our integrated topic this term,<br />

we have been learning about<br />

transformation with the context<br />

for learning being looking at how<br />

Christchurch has transformed as a<br />

result of migration. To learn more<br />

about what Christchurch was like<br />

back in the colonial days, each Kaitiaki<br />

group in Year 1-3 hopped on the bus to<br />

Ferrymead!<br />

Our students were so excited when the<br />

bus turned up - for some of our tamariki<br />

it was their first ever bus ride! When we<br />

arrived at Ferrymead, the children got<br />

changed into their costumes.<br />

Our students also baked cookies in a<br />

colonial kitchen.<br />

They also attended Moorhouse school<br />

- a colonial school with very strict<br />

expectations!<br />

Buzz buzz - Nothing sweeter than honey!<br />

Kicking off the year with harvesting last year’s honey!<br />

Last year we started our journey with our new beehive provided by Bee<br />

Awesome and they have been fantastic!<br />

We started with preparing our school grounds with some beautiful native plants/<br />

trees as well as bee-friendly plants that were given to us by Bee Awesome.<br />

The awesome staff at Bee Awesome then took our students for a series of<br />

lessons around honey bees in preparation for the incoming hive.<br />

Term 4 2022, rolls around and we have our new beehive, this went from a single<br />

box to a 4 tier box over the next 8 weeks.<br />

The students were able to kit up in bee suits and open up the beehive to have a<br />

look inside and see how the bees were going.<br />

From there we locked it up for over the summer when we knew they would be<br />

busy at work.<br />

This year we finally got the chance to open it up with most of last year’s Bee<br />

Team. They were so excited to see all the hard work that the bees had done over<br />

the summer.<br />

Check out some pictures of our students in action harvesting the honey and<br />

learning about different things. The bees are really healthy and we are super<br />

happy with how we were supported during this process by Bee Awesome and by<br />

the school.<br />

Kōmingo Year 5 & 6<br />

CBD Trip<br />

In Term 4 we went on<br />

our Trip to the CBD.<br />

On our trip we went<br />

to Margaret Mahy<br />

Park, completed<br />

a Scavenger hunt<br />

to find cultural<br />

landmarks in the CBD<br />

including the Kate<br />

Shepherd memorial<br />

and the Bridge of<br />

Remembrance,<br />

visited the Tūranga<br />

library to learn about cultural landmarks<br />

and walked to Victoria Square to<br />

have our lunch under the trees before<br />

completing our scavenger hunt. It was a<br />

very hot day but it was loads of fun and<br />

we learnt a lot about the transformation<br />

of our city and the cultural landmarks.<br />

Thank you to the amazing parent<br />

helpers, teachers and staff from<br />

Tūranga who made our trip so<br />

awesome!<br />

Police Competency Test - <strong>2023</strong><br />

Taiheke were fortunate enough to have two teams enter into this event. PCT competition was<br />

held on Tuesday the 7th of <strong>March</strong>. This event was run at Cowles stadium. Students in their teams<br />

were put through their paces, testing their speed, agility, teamwork, and perseverance. Below are<br />

some student’s reflections and a selection of photos from the event.<br />

Maya<br />

• Thought that the PCT test was very fun and an amazing experience. We got to do lots of<br />

activities, such as laser, lilypad and who could fold their tarpaulin the most times and we would<br />

have to stand on them for ten seconds. My favourite part was the actual test because it was<br />

fun jumping over the walls.<br />

Enzo<br />

• The PCT was extraordinary with plenty of activities including: Laser run where there was a police<br />

officer that would record your speed with a laser gun while you run down a track. We got to tour<br />

through a police car and look through the St. John’s equipment, learning the safety position and<br />

also learning how to do CPR. There were also team-building challenges that would test your<br />

teamwork. But my favourite was the main event which was the PCT course! It was my favourite<br />

because of all the obstacles which was a challenge but through teamwork we succeeded.<br />

Jessie<br />

• Taking part in the PCT this week was an amazing experience as we were able to put all our<br />

fitness skills to the test. One of my highlights from the event was taking part in a variety of<br />

activities leading up to the main test. The main test was a very challenging course with many<br />

obstacles to overcome as a team but after all our hard work on the course, we were able to get<br />

a free sausage sizzle (which was very yummy). Overall I would recommend to anyone coming<br />

into year 7/8 in the coming years to try out for the PCT team as it was an amazing experience<br />

and just a really great chance to work in a team.

Chris<br />

Smith<br />

took up<br />

painting<br />

during<br />

the<br />

Covid-19<br />

pandemic<br />

and<br />

wants<br />

to form<br />

a group<br />

to help<br />

isolated<br />

artists.<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 />

•For further information<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 />

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 the<br />

first time, while Stowers-Smith<br />

was named in last year’s secondary<br />

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 in<br />

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 of<br />

the Christchurch under-18 netball<br />

team that won the national<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 />

championships last year.<br />

After three years of Covid-19<br />

impacting international competition<br />

for secondary schools’<br />

netball, the final squad will<br />

travel to Australia in June for<br />

an under-19 competition. New<br />

Zealand secondary schools head<br />

coach Pelesa Semu said most<br />

players are new to the Netball<br />

New Zealand player pathway environment<br />

and the international<br />

exposure will be important<br />

leading up to the Netball World<br />

Youth Cup 2025.<br />

“The NZSS team holds a special<br />

place in New Zealand netball<br />

history and the pinnacle for<br />

secondary school players around<br />

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 look<br />

into the future of our game in<br />

New Zealand.” Semu will be<br />

assisted by former Silver Fern Jo<br />

Morrison, who will observe and<br />

work with the 24 players during<br />

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

and match play in Auckland<br />

from April 16-18.<br />

St Andrew’s mixed team<br />

WINNER: Samuel Mustchin touches down for St Andrew’s<br />

in the last minute of the South Island secondary schools’<br />

mixed touch final on Sunday.<br />

score 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 8-7<br />

in the final on Sunday to clinch<br />

the title.<br />

St Andrew’s team manager<br />

Alison Lomax said they made<br />

a strong start to the match, but<br />

Rolleston came back in the second<br />

half and managed to draw<br />

even with less than a minute to<br />

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.<br />

“The large crowd was kept well<br />

entertained with this nail-biting<br />

finish and it was an excellent display<br />

of skills from 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 />

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.<br />

The only final played without<br />

a Christchurch school at the<br />

tournament was in the girls’<br />

grade. Rangi Ruru finished<br />

fourth in the grade.

St Thomas’ dominate Brad Milne Cup<br />

• By Jaime Cunningham<br />

ST THOMAS’ dominated the<br />

second half to win the annual<br />

Brad Milne Cup basketball<br />

match against Rolleston College<br />

on Friday.<br />

In a game of two halves, it was<br />

Rolleston leading 43-37 at halftime.<br />

St Thomas’ started the<br />

third quarter with a 14-point<br />

run, which left Rolleston with<br />

a large deficit for the rest of the<br />

match.<br />

At one stage in the second half,<br />

St Thomas’ were leading by 50<br />

points.<br />

Rolleston were able to claw<br />

their way back, but St Thomas’<br />

proved too strong, winning<br />

110-71.<br />

Rolleston College deputy<br />

principal Alby Wilson said it was<br />

great to see the manawa (heartwarming)<br />

spirit of the large<br />

crowd of St Thomas’ supporters<br />

in the Rolleston gymnasium.<br />

The match is played as a season<br />

opener for both schools’ senior<br />

basketball sides in memory of<br />

former teacher Brad Milne.<br />

Milne worked at St Thomas’<br />

for eight years and was<br />

previously an assistant principal<br />

before he moved to Rolleston<br />

College in 2020.<br />

He passed away unexpectedly<br />

in 2020, and the cup was<br />

established the following year.<br />

St Thomas’ have won all three<br />

of the matches.<br />

BIG GAME: St Thomas’ on the charge in the clash against Rolleston College. Left – Brad Milne.<br />

“The whole night captured<br />

the essence of what the night is<br />

celebrating: The life and memory<br />

of Brad Milne. It was played<br />

with heart, fairness and mana.<br />

We know Brad would have been<br />

proud of both teams,” Wilson<br />

said.<br />

Both teams finished the game<br />

with a powerful haka, which<br />

Wilson said was “a great way to<br />

end the night.”<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 />

Kirkwood Intermediate<br />

School of Choice<br />

Celebrating Kirkwood<br />

House Captains for <strong>2023</strong><br />

Year 7 Camp<br />

Our Year 7 pupils have recently<br />

attended a camp at Purau Bay.<br />

This is a great way for the children<br />

to get to know each other.<br />

Back row (from left): Clara, Alex, Amilee, Annabel<br />

Front Row (from left): CJ, Nika, Liam, Oscar<br />

My favourite<br />

part of camp was the<br />

abseiling because it was<br />

fun, challenging, and a new<br />

experience. It was great to watch<br />

everyone do it. I learnt that there<br />

were lots of different types of crabs<br />

on the beach. I also learnt that<br />

when you are abseiling you<br />

never put your feet close<br />

together.<br />

My favourite<br />

part of the camp<br />

was doing the activities<br />

and feeding the eels and<br />

goats. We enjoyed the free<br />

time on the beach, the water<br />

was crystal clear. The<br />

abseiling was amazing;<br />

you feel like you can<br />

fly.<br />

House Captains for Mansfield/Hillary<br />

CJ - ex Ararira Springs Primary<br />

I love the teachers at Kirkwood and I find the school culture is so down<br />

to earth and is super motivational. I like the discipline and strict rules the<br />

teachers lay out. I want to make a positive influence on the students during<br />

their time at Kirkwood and I want to make the environment a better place.<br />

I wanted to be a House Captain because I wanted to be a great leader for<br />

this school.<br />

Clara - ex Lincoln Primary<br />

I like the opportunities and learning environment. Also, the people from<br />

different backgrounds and the staff at Kirkwood are all lovely to talk to.This<br />

year, I would like to encourage more students to try new things. I want to<br />

help fundraise to help our school and I would like to help more students<br />

respect, encourage, and help others. I wanted to be a House Captain<br />

so I could help others, learn leadership skills, and have an influence with<br />

decisions made at school.<br />

House Captains for Sheppard/Freyberg<br />

Liam - ex Knights Stream School<br />

I like Kirkwood for the many opportunities which are offered, especially<br />

leadership opportunities. I will encourage people to try new things which are<br />

outside of their comfort zone. I wanted to become a House Captain because<br />

I would like to get more involved with the school and learn leadership skills.<br />

Amilee - ex Prebbleton<br />

At Kirkwood, I like all the sports and activities made available to us. I would<br />

love to get in a netball, touch and korfball team and will encourage others to<br />

try sports too. I was always wanting to be House Captain at Kirkwood so I<br />

can develop leadership skills.<br />

House Captains for Britten/Te Kanawa<br />

Oscar - ex Ilam School<br />

I really like the Technology classes and Physical Education. My favourite<br />

subject is writing. I wanted to be a House Captain so I can show I am<br />

responsible and really trustworthy to others.<br />

Annabel - ex Halswell School<br />

I enjoy the Technology classes, all the sports available at Kirkwood, and the<br />

many different opportunities offered at Kirkwood. I will get everyone to enjoy<br />

sports days and encourage people to earn House Points. I wanted to be a<br />

House Captain because it sounds like a good leadership role.<br />

House Captains for Rutherford/Batten<br />

Alex - ex Ararira Springs Primary<br />

I love Kirkwood because there are always new things to do and learn. It is<br />

awesome to be around a lot of people my age, and to learn and grow from<br />

them. There are also heaps of cool opportunities, whether they are sporting,<br />

academic or leadership. This year I would like to encourage everyone to be<br />

their best self and make the most of every opportunity. Last year, our class<br />

studied who our houses are named after, this inspired me and made me<br />

want to become a leader.<br />

Nika - ex Beckenham School<br />

I love Kirkwood so much as I feel like I can do anything. All the teachers<br />

and children support me in everything I do. I want to encourage learning and<br />

interacting with others. I wanted to be a House Captain so I can show people<br />

like me that they can do anything they want if they put their mind to it.<br />

I enjoyed all of<br />

the camp, especially<br />

abseiling, canoeing, the farm<br />

tour and feeding the eels. We learnt<br />

how to abseil and how to play Kick the<br />

Can. I learnt that Ripapa Island existed,<br />

and I learnt the island's past uses and<br />

history. I also learnt a lot more about<br />

the Māori history in and around<br />

Ripapa. We went on a farm tour<br />

and enjoyed seeing all the<br />

farm animals.<br />

My favourite<br />

part was abseiling<br />

down the cliff. My other<br />

favourite part was canoeing<br />

in the ocean. I learnt that goats<br />

will eat absolutely anything if<br />

you let them. I also learnt how<br />

to put a tent up and down<br />

and that chickens and<br />

goats like bread.<br />
