2.   Significance

2.1       The decision(s) in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.2   Due to the assessment of low significance, no further community engagement and consultation is required.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board:

1.         Approves to make a grant of $500 from its 2015/16 Youth Development Fund to Anna Taylor towards her competing in the 2016 Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships in Everett, U.S.A from 8 to 10 April 2016.

 

 

4.   Applicant 1 - Anna Taylor

4.1       In February 2016, the Rhythmic Sport Development Committee selected Anna to represent New Zealand at the 2016 Pacific Rim Competition in the USA.  

4.2       Anna has been a National Champion in 2012, 2013, and 2014 and was second overall in 2015.  Anna has represented New Zealand in 2013, 2014 and 2015 at various competitions.  In 2015 she was the Canterbury Gymsports International Rhythmic Gymnast of the year. 

4.3       Anna is 14 years old.  She started rhythmic gymnastics when she was 6 years old.  She trains 22 hours a week at present, five days a week.

4.4       Her future goal is to be the first rhythmic gymnast to represent New Zealand at the Olympic Games and to compete at the Commonwealth Games in 2018.  This would then be able to show other local gymnasts what hard work and dedication can achieve.  She also plans to bring back the lessons learnt to her peers from her experiences overseas.

4.5       The Halswell Lions Club has already approved $500 towards costs.  Anna and her family have also been doing sausage sizzles outside The Warehouse Hornby and has raised $1,000 so far.
