Road Safety Education offers a one-day programme called RYDA for senior high school students. It aims to change their thinking as drivers and passengers. To date more than 36,000 students across New Zealand have graduated from the RYDA programme since its introduction in 2007. Over a similar time- frame the road toll in the 15-19 demographic has dropped by 64 per cent. The Ministry of Transport released figures last week showing that 247 people were killed on New Zealand roads this year and had increased for the past two consecutive years. In 2014 the road toll was 212 and in 2013, 197. In contrast road toll statistics are down for youth. Auckland schools Baradene, ACG Stathallan, and Kings Colleges are participating in the programme in Term 4. Last week sponsor BOC Gases and NZ Steel, with community partner Rotary, confirmed their commitment to partially fund the programme for schools in the Eastern Bays area. Road Safety Education NZ programme manager Simone Randle says a fatal accident in Pakuranga involving a Year 13 secondary school student highlights the importance of teaching young drivers and passengers how to reduce their risks when travelling in a vehicle or riding a motorbike. Evidence suggests that young people are most at risk of being involved in a serious crash in the first six months after transitioning from being a supervised learner to an independent provisional driver. “But the loss of a single life is one too many,” Ms Randle says. “Every month in New Zealand on average, five young people aged between 15 and 24 years of age die on our roads. “ These accidents are a tragic loss for friends, family and whole communities. “ The heart-felt condolences on social media last week are a testament to this [Pakuranga] young man’s value to his community and the contribution he has already made to it in his short life. “Our goal is to make sure we continue our efforts to ensure this tragedy is not repeated in another community.” EDUCATION Student road safety programme boosted According to Megan Flashman, her 99 Bleakhouse Road home makes the perfect Halloween house due to its character and style. Decorating her house with creepy ghouls, skeletons and giant cobwebs, Ms Flashman invites the local community to experience a unique Halloween house with sweets included. Built in 1932 by Henry Haseler, an English farmer and landowner, it was known as the Haseler Homestead and led to the naming of Haseler Crescent and Haseler Hall at the All Saints Church in Howick. “Our Halloween night is our way of remembering and honouring the lives of Henry and his wife Helena – it is also a wonderful opportunity to share our home and its history with our local community,” Ms Flashman says. Money raised through a gold coin donation will be donated to the All Saints Church in the hope that they will honour the generous legacy left to them by the Haselers. “Our local people, and their own unique culture and heritage is what makes our community so special – it is therefore so important that we treasure the memories of our past and take great care of it,” Ms Flashman says. ➤➤ The Flashmans’ haunted Halloween house will only be open to the public on October 31. Halloween house honours history The haunted Halloween house in Howick is open to the public on October 31 with sweets included. Photo supplied Running for a good cause Two local women, Kathryn Albertson, a former teacher of Cockle Bay School, and Shirley Davy, who works at a recruitment company in Botany, will be running the ASB Auckland Marathon on November 1. Ms Albertson’s husband Stephen has kidney failure and is seeking a donor. The idea behind her running the half-marathon at the ASB Auckland Marathon was to maintain her fitness as a donor. But last month she was rejected. They are still looking for a donor. Shirley Davy, mother of Sam Davy, has run the last two Auckland half-marathons for different charities. She admits she’s no runner and just hopes to complete the course. Her son Sam has a very rare condition diagnosed as MMIHS (megacystic microcolon intestinal hypoperistalsis syndrome) which means his intestine is under-developed and is unable to process food as normal. To combat this he is put on three drips every night for 14 hours to give him the necessary nutrients to live. The six-year-old has undergone 40 trips to the Starship operating theatre. There will be a live screening of the All Blacks game live at the start line in Devonport. Many runners are expected to turn up to watch the Rugby World Cup.
