Just to clarify, I wrote in response to

Farrant told the Woodend Ashley
Community Board that he knew
about the proposal to add MIOX in

its implementation? Kirstyn Barnett

Where it began
Regarding the article, Looking into
origin of Maori (Outlook,f June 29),
I wish to correct an error.
The Pan Pacific Sciences
conferences, held from the 1920s to
the 1970s, found that all Polynesians
(not just Maori) belonged to an
Austronesian family that extends as
far west as Madagascar.
These Austronesians left South
Africa and canoed to Egypt -- via
Madagascar -- more than 3000 years
ago. Their remarkable journey, from
South Africa to the Solomon Islands,
via Madagascar and Egypt, is
celebrated in Maori legend by the
action song, the Canoe Poi.
Every five years, the Solomon
Islanders build an original ocean-
going waka, which is identical to the
Maori waka, using stone tools and
hand-woven sails, to celebrate their
building of the great fleet for the
While waiting for their waka to be
built, Maori Polynesians erected pa
sites in the Solomons area. I have
seen both the pa sites and the
Back in their homeland of the
South African veldt, the Polynesians
were farmers and hunters, not
sailors. And remnants of the old
Maori language can still be found in
South Africa. Words like titihuia --
which is a little insect-eating bird
found only on the veldt -- prove that
the veldt of South Africa is Hawaiiki.
Penpals recall 60
years of memories
REUNITED: Beverley Ashworth, of
Amberley, andher penfriendofnearly 60
years, AnneFerguson, of Kilwinning, near
Glasgow, duringMrs Ashworth's recenttrip
AN AMBERLEY woman
who has been corresponding
with her Scottish penfriend
for nearly 60 years has just
returned home after her
first visit there.
Beverley Ashworth, of
Audleigh on Terrace Rd,
said that her penpal Anne
Ferguson, from Kilwinning,
near Glasgow, in Scotland,
came to visit her in 2004.
We haven t changed
much in that time, so I
recognised her immediately.
That and the photos all hel-
ped, Mrs Ashworth said.
When Mrs Ferguson came
here in November 2004, the
Northern Outlook carried a
photograph of the pair
together, in what both said
was a really exciting and
This time around, alth-
ough she uses a wheelchair
to get from A to B , it was
Mrs Ashworth s turn to
travel, and she said she was
still able to whizz around
the sights of Scotland and
had a great trip.
It was marvellous to see
The two began writing
when Mrs Ashworth was
about 15. A friend had a
spare name and passed it on
to Mrs Ashworth, who then
lived in Christchurch.
Her trip included a visit to
Dunblane, which was the
scene of a school massacre in
1996 and is the home town
of Wimbledon champion
There s a big, wide world
out there, she said.
She left her husband, Jim,
behind and travelled on her
own to Kilwinning.
Her greatest joy lay in
seeing her penpal again and
catching up on the 60 years
that they have been writing
to each other.
Team have talented touch
NATIONALS BECKON: Kaiapoi High School's mixed touch football team are heading to the National Secondary
School Championships in December.
KAIAPOI High School s mixed
touch football team will spend
the next few months training
hard and fundraising, after
qualifying for the National
Secondary Schools Touch
Championships in December.
The team got off to a good
start this year, managing a sec-
ond placing in the Canterbury
secondary schools champion-
ships in February.
This saw them qualify for the
South Island secondary school
championships at Sheldon Park,
Belfast, in late March.
There, the tough competition
showed. They finished fifth, but
this still earned them a place in
the nationals in Auckland.
The school community is now
rallying behind the team, and
the players are grateful for the
guidance they have had from
coaches Te Wano Thomas -- a
former student -- and national
representative and teacher
A fundraising show featuring
hypnotist Brian Gee will be held
on Saturday, August 17, in the
Kaiapoi High School audi-
torium, at 7pm.
Tickets are available from the
school office or from team
members, at $15 each.
