Photo: MICHELLE ROBINSON Practice wasn't needed to make perfect for nine- year-old smartie Casey Klyn. The Forrest Hill Pri- mary School pupil is enjoying a well-deserved rest these holidays after earning the top mark in New Zealand in her first ever academic exam. She earned first place in her age category for her perfect 45 out of 45 score in a University of New South Wales Eng- lish exam. Theexamisoneofa number offered to pupils throughout Australasia. As it's not part of the official curriculum here, pupils enter by choice and have little oppor- tunity to practice before- hand. It's very rare for a student to get 100 percent,'' her teacher Lisa Leggett says. It was Casey's first time sitting and doing a test for an hour without teacher assistance.'' Part of the exam included reading a story and answering multi- choice questions about it. Casey received a gold medal at a special national ceremony at the Aotea Centre in Auck- land last month. She was also honoured in a school ceremony where she received a gift of new stationery. Her parents also let her have her favourite food for dinner -- McDonald's. Liz enjoys her role as guide By SARAH CODDINGTON Helping out: Devonport resident Liz Gordon is Voyager NZ Maritime Museum volunteer of the year. Liz Gordon has been named volunteer of the year by the Voyager New Zealand Maritime Mus- eum. The Devonport resi- dent joined the museum as a guide seven years ago. She joined because the museum needed volunteers but was a little daunted by the idea of being a guide. It was with some trepidation that I agreed togiveitatry,butitwas one of the best decisions I've ever made,'' Ms Gor- don says. In her role as guide she meets people from all parts of the world and enjoys sharing her enthusiasm with visitors during tours. Most people are amazed by the wonderful displays and leave with a much deeper appreci- ation of our maritime story,'' Ms Gordon says. She also helps with the exhibitions team assist- ing with graphic design work for object labels and display panels. New volunteers are always welcome for roles including guiding, hosting, heritage vessel crew and maintenance. Call Carol on 373-0809 or email carol@maritime museum.co.nz.
