On average, 107 Auckland children are hospitalised each year as a result of incidents involving excessive speed near schools. Research has shown that speeds of 40km/h or less significantly lower the severity of injury if a child is struck by a vehicle. A child hit at 45km/h has a 50 per cent chance of survival. This reduces to a 10 per cent survival rate at 50km/h. Songbird creates record Chart hit: Tayla Alexander is already proving herself as a classical singing sensation. By MARNIE HALLAHAN The North Shore's very own classical music superstar Tayla Alexander has set a new record by becoming the youngest artist to appear on the New Zealand music charts. The 12-year-old released her debut album Songbird last year at age 11. Songbird peaked at number four on the Independent Music New Zealand album chart just before Christmas, where Tayla sat alongside some of the biggest, most established names in Kiwi music. For Tayla, who attends North- cross Intermediate School, it was a huge buzz to see her name next to the likes of Kora, Six60, Fat Freddy's Drop and Opshop. Songbird was recorded by famed musician, producer and arranger Bruce Lynch, who has worked with talents including Cat Stevens, Kiri Te Kanawa and Kate Bush. Last year Tayla signed with music man Roger Marbeck's Ode Records In December, she performed Pie Jesu from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem in front of a 200,000-strong crowd at Coca- Cola Christmas in the Park. Her next performance will be at the New Zealander of the Year event in February. Memories sharp FROM Page 1 Whakatane. Memories of the meeting still make Ailsa's eyes well up. She recalls the rib- bons all over his chest'' and being moved that he wanted to stay in touch with bereaved families. Mrs Coutts enjoyed a fabulous 100th birthday party at her Mormon chapel in Aeroview Dr surrounded by family and friends. She has an infectious laugh and lively spirit. She said at 100 she feels no different than when I was 9''. Her birthday party featured a cake made by grandchildren and icecreams. She lives with her daughter Andrea who struggles to keep up with her mum who had a hip replacement at 93. I have to yell out: Wait for me', as she walks along the road,'' Andrea says.
