Former Takapuna Grammar School teacher Nova Camp, 54, used her position as club treasurer to write cheques for her personal use for nine months from late 2011. Camp appeared in the North Shore District Court on February 12 for sentencing on three rep- resentative charges of obtaining by pecuniary advantage by dishones- tly using cheques from Takapuna Grammar School Rowing Club. The court heard how Camp wrote cash cheques or paid her own bills using the club s account, fraudu- lently racking up $40,395 in her own name. In sentencing, Judge Nevin Daw- son stressed the need for Camp to be held accountable. It s clear that there was a mass- ive sense of grievance in that row- ing club for your behaviour . . . you reduced the options for that club to proceed with their sport. Mr Dawson said the club was a vulnerable victim and that Camp s crime had a high degree of pre- meditation, as it continued over so many months. Camp s lawyer Lucy Smith asked for a sentence of home detention and said Camp had a 16-year-old daughter at home who had health issues. Mr Dawson gave Camp credit for an early guilty plea, her previous good character and said he could see her remorse was genuine. He knocked a starting point of two years imprisonment down to seven months and two weeks of home detention and ordered Camp to pay reparation of $40 a week. She would also be required to undertake budgeting classes and counselling if required by her pro- bation officer. School speed limits being widely flouted By MARYKE PENMAN Children are in danger as wild drivers continuously disregard road rules around schools, police say. North Shore police area com- mander Inspector Les Paterson says one motorist has been fined for running a red light at a pedestrian crossing while chil- dren were walking across it. Another was ticketed for speeding at 69kmh through a lollypop crossing as schoolchild- ren waited just metres away. In both instances police officers and their cars were highly visible, but seemed to go unnoticed, he says. The offending has been especially bad in the first few days of term one, Acting Traffic Sergeant Jamie Franklin says. He says 98 notices and 18 warnings have been issued in the North Shore area alone, 39 of which were for speeding and the remainder for other driving offences near school entrances. School traffic has further con- gested busy roads with an esti- mated 60 per cent of pupils trav- elling in private vehicles. Around primary schools it can be chaos. Some parents are very sen- sible while others perform amaz- ing feats including creative park- ing, Mr Paterson says. Police urge drivers to obey the 40kmh speed limit around schools at the start and end of the pupils day. Matchbox art strikes light for justice By MARNIE HALLAHAN Miniature: Over 50 matchboxes were transformed into works of art for Amnesty International's latest fundraiser. The latest exhibition from charity Amnesty International proves good things do come in small packages. Showing at the Depot s Museum of the Vernacular this month, Strike is a unique art show featur- ing the matchbox art creations of artists, musicians, designers and celebrities including Annah Stret- ton, Dave Dobbyn, Tiki Taane and Jon Toogood. Each artist was supplied with a Beehive matchbox and asked to express themselves on a canvas measuring just 5cm by 7cm. The result is over 50 miniature creations which will be auctioned on Trade Me throughout the exhi- bition. Amnesty International public campaigns manager Mo Farrell said the idea for the exhibit came from wanting to find something that was both quirky and Kiwi but also relevant in some way to Amnesty International. And that s where the matchbox comes in. The Amnesty candle is famous for shining a light into the darkest places, but without the humble match, the candle would remain unlit, she says. The auction, beginning on Febru- ary 26, allows people to bid for their favourite matchbox creation and to raise money to help protect human rights. The exhibition is open 10am till 3pm at The Depot s Museum of the Vernacular in Devonport, from February 27 until March 2. Visit trade.me/strike-matchboxes to bid.
