Volunteer charity work wins trophy for student Humanitarian endeavours: Cassandra Burton-Wood, centre, said her work for World Vision and Amnesty International would not have been possible without a team of supporters. By TASHA BLACK ' No-one from my generation can really comprehend the kind of sacrifice it would have taken to hide a Jewish girl during World War II. We don't really have anything to compare that to. ' Kapiti College head girl Cassandra Burton-Wood The head girl of Kapiti College is the first person to be awarded Elli s Trophy in rec- ognition of humanitarian endeavours. Cassandra Burton-Wood, 18, received the award at the college s senior prizegiving for her contribution to World Vision 40 Hour Famine and Amnesty International. Elli s Trophy is named after Jewish refugee Elli Szanowski who, as a toddler, was kept safe by Frits and Johanna Hakkens in their home in Nazi-occupied Holland for two-and-a-half years during World War II. The trophy was donated to Kapiti College by Waikanae s Marcel Hakkens, the son of Frits and Johanna, and his wife Gloria, to inspire humanitarian endeavours. Cassandra led fundraising efforts at the school for World Vision, raising over $9000. She said she was very sur- prised to win the award and was holding back a few tears at prizegiving. It s pretty much the most meaningful award I have ever been given at college. Elli s Trophy has an amazing heritage behind it, she said. I was a little bit overwhelmed. I think it sounds a little bit cliche but the Holocaust hit home a lot more. No-one from my gener- ation can really comprehend the kind of sacrifice it would have taken to hide a Jewish girl during World War II. We don t really have anything to com- pare that to. Kapiti College principal Tony Kane said World Vision organisers were very impressed with Cassandra s planning system and talked to the school about it being used as a model for other schools. [Cassandra s] desire to assist those less fortunate is heartfelt and the time and effort which she put into organising the programme at Kapiti College was outstanding, said Mr Kane. Cassandra plans to study Politics, French and Psychology at Victoria University next year, and to keep volunteering with World Vision and Amnesty International. Driver stopped Otaki police stopped a driver in a routine patrol on Sunday morning and found the Eketahuna man to be a forbidden driver. Sergeant Noel Bigwood said the 25-year-old was stopped on Mill Rd at about 12.30am. Police impounded his car for 28 days, and he would have to appear in front of a judge to explain why he was driving, said Mr Bigwood. Always let us know Staging an event or have some news to share?
