CORRECTION In our story regarding the Rangihoua Park hearings last week we named the Reserves Act the Reserves Management Act. We apologise for the oversight. Joy ride: Kavanna Jade travels up the Rotorua Skyline gondola. Waiheke High School students raised $800 towards her bucket list trip at a mufti day. LETTERS Big thanks We would like to give big thanks to the Waiheke High School pupils who raised around $800 to help Kavanna Jade tick a weekend of luging, zorbing and adrenalin off her bucket list. We spent four days away in Rotorua with great weather and all of us challenged ourselves to something new, facing our fears from heights to speeds. It was an action packed weekend with zorbing, luging, Rainbow Springs, Big Splash, patting a lion cub at Paradise Valley and jet boating. We also visited the buried village and relaxed in the lake spas at the Polynesian hot springs. Thank you to everyone involved. Carolyn Ogg Kavanna Jade's mum Travel prize What a brilliant day for the Christmas Festival and a lovely atmosphere with the street closed off on December 5. It was topped off for me by winning the travel prize, which left me (almost) speechless. (I always say I never win anything ). Sincere thanks to the businesses who contributed and to assure them I shopped in several that day! Marion Bridge Film sessions are set to inspire This month s Spiritual Cinema at Waiheke Community Cinema is on Boxing Day, Wednesday, December 26. The session starts an hour later than usual at 7.30pm, with proceeds going to the Jassy Dean Trust which helps sick children and their families. Reconnection and reflection are the overarching themes this month. The first short, The Rose Garden, showcases the blind compassion, acceptance and ulti- mate connection between two complete strangers. A poem by Mourid Barghouti frames the moving Irish short, Even Gods, when a man reunites with his reluctant daughter after a long estrangement. The Fisherman tenderly por- trays an elderly man s reconnec- tion with his favourite memories from a most surprising source. The feature film continues the connection trend. Neale Donald Walsch s Living in Light takes the viewer on an enlightening journey into the connection with divine consciousness. The suggested donation is $12 but koha is welcome.
