She is going home after spending nine months as an exchange student on Waiheke. One man s dream to help a Tibetan student come to New Zealand to study has come to fruition although he died before seeing it happen. Onetangi resident Margaret Mills late son Bruce had a wish to bring young Tibetan stu- dent Kelsang Choedon to Waiheke to further her studies, but sadly died before seeing his plan come to fruition. His mother, brother Brett and residents Ann and Bill Kinghorn com- pleted his wish and Kel- sang arrived on the island in January. Now after nine months in year 12 at Waiheke High School, the 18-year- old is going home. Mrs Mills threw a party for the departing Kelsang at Onetangi Hall on Saturday. Mrs Kinghorn, who Kelsang boarded with on Waiheke, says having a young Tibetan girl stay with her was a very interesting experience. I ve learnt a lot more about Tibetan culture and I hope Kelsang will remember some of the experiences she s had here. Bruce met Kelsang at a village called Bir/ Billing on the Tibetan/ Indian border where her parents had moved to after leaving Tibet as refugees. He settled in the village and estab- lished a paragliding business that still brings an income to the remote area. Kelsang s edu- cational abilities so impressed Bruce he was determined to bring her to New Zealand. A three-year bureau- cratic battle ensued and just when Bruce heard her visa had come through, he died of can- cer, leaving his dream to be completed by his mother and brother. Kelsang says her time on the island was good but she missed her boarding school in India. I m more confident now. I know how to study independently and have a little bit of freedom. Service blesses all the animals Canine courtesy: A dog sits on its owner's lap waiting to be blessed at the annual service at St Peter's Church. By GILL ALCOCK Animals of all shapes and sizes took centre stage at St Peter's Church in Little Oneroa for the annual Blessing of the Animals event on Sunday. Dogs of every breed fought for leg room among the feet of their proud owners while cats sporting leads took up many a lap. Chickens replaced babes in arms and a horse and rider made an appearance outside. The pets and their owners formed orderly queues to receive their blessing at the service which celebrates the life of Italian friar and preacher Saint Francis of Assisi who lived from 1182 to 1226.
