Blue Light girls get
new outfit in camp
BLUE LIGHT: Constable Bruce Ward,
Christchurch Youth Aid officer,
accompanied the girls to The Palms
where they received their makeovers en
route to the camp in Hanmer Springs.
EIGHT CHRISTCHURCH girls got
more than they bargained for as they
headed to a free three-day camp at
Hanmer Springs this month run by
Blue Light Canterbury and police.
They were treated to a surprise
trip to The Palms to select a new
outfit. The Palms matched the Blue
Light Canterbury committee by con-
tributing $40 towards each girl s
shopping at the centre.
The Blue Light branch runs an
annual Wahine Toa, a camp for girls
aged 11 to 16 who are survivors of
The Palms Shopping Centre man-
ager Simon Carter said his organis-
ation recognised the value of a camp
and was glad to be able to support
Blue Light Canterbury as it worked
with local girls in a safe and support-

Toa support person Leanne Buchan

special event on the final night of the
It was a great night for the girls,
who had spent the afternoon having
a makeover, followed by an evening
of canapes and mocktails served to
them by police officers, Ms Buchan
said. The main aim of the camp is to
raise the self-esteem and confidence
of the girls and to help encourage the
growth of trust and motivation in a
supportive environment where they
feel safe and secure.
Money sense study
PRELIMINARY RESEARCH has
found that university students who
were older when their parents first
discussed financial matters with
them feel less knowledgeable on
financial matters than their friends
-- and are less likely to be influenced
by their parents in money matters.
The early research also shows it is
less likely their parents provide
them with financial information
about credit card debt and taxes,
University of Canterbury economics
researcher Steve Agnew says.
University of Canterbury econo-
mics researchers are seeking to
establish whether children having a
savings account from an early age, or
talking to parents about financial
matters at an early age, leads to
improved financial attitudes and
behaviours later in life.
The preliminary research also
found that the older the students
were when they got their first sav-
ings account, the more likely they
are to avoid doing what their parents
have done when it comes to financial
decisions, and the less likely their
parents are to talk to them about
money, Mr Agnew said.
This raises an interesting ques-
tion. Can receiving financial literacy
education from other sources such as
at school replace a lack of financial
interaction with parents?
Our early results suggests poss-
ibly not, as a lack of early financial
interaction with parents appears to
have endured into adulthood in
terms of a perceived lack of financial
knowledge relative to their peers.
Mr Agnew said these questions
will be explored later in the year
with research at Canterbury high
