Where are they now?

2011: Fergus Farrell  won a bronze medal in the K1 slalom at the New Zealand secondary schools kayaking championships. He planned to study ecology at university, with the hope of becoming a marine scientist.
2021: Farrell lives in Christchurch, where he is a software developer specialising in health technology. He was part of the team that developed the National Child Health Information Platform (NCHIP), which has significantly improved early child health development
in Northland. He still enjoys kayaking but in multisport events rather than whitewater kayaking.

 

 

2011: Maeve Ryan represented Otago at the New Zealand Lions Club Young Speechmakers competition. She also played in her school’s first basketball team. She planned to
study television media.
2021: A service delivery adviser for Greater Wellington Regional Council, Ryan says basketball and public speaking gave her skills but she has swapped both interests for ‘‘more holistic views and hobbies’’. These include crafts, aerial yoga and pilates, ‘‘topped with
a sprinkling of activism for good measure’’.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
