Chadwick Student Travels To China To Compete In Chinese Language Continued from Page 2 . . . Watanabe won the Western Regional Championship both last year and this year. (This is the third year that she has entered the competition; she was the Western Regional 2nd Place finisher in her first attempt.) The six students chosen from the top contest finishers to represent the U.S. are selected based on their overall academics, talents, and personal qualities as well as their Chinese language proficiency.

Watanabe is a resident of Palos Verdes Estates. Her parents are Japanese and Korean, so Chinese is her fourth language. She is also a gifted musician (flute) and active in Chadwick’s International Rotary-sponsored Interact Club and Chadwick Model United Nations. She plays the flute in a quartet made up of four Chadwick musicians that gives free concerts in the South Bay. She is also a member of Chadwick’s orchestra, chamber orchestra, and ensembles. — email reports

Panthers, Raiders Lead Way For NASU Fundraisers

• Student members of the Native American Student Union (NASU) collected hundreds of toys. The NASU Toy Drive at Peninsula High and Ridgecrest Intermediate school was a great success thanks to the generosity of the community. The NASU provided free admission to Thursday night’s girls’ and boys’ basketball games at Peninsula High for anyone who brought a toy. During the boys’ basketball game

halftime, the NASU thanked the student body and then had a drawing for gift certificates as a thank you for everyone’s generosity. Children on Indian Reservations will have a wonderful holiday with the donated toys from Peninsula students. In addition, Ridgecrest Intermediate School Cotillion students also participated in the collection of toys. Congratulations to NASU for a great fundraiser. — email reports

SFJ Students Take Lead In Charity Fundraisers

• St. John Fisher School students provide funds and food during the Holiday season. St. John Fisher School students raised over $2,000 to provide assistance to the victims of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The students also collected almost 1,100 pounds of canned goods, packaged foods, grains, formula, clothing, toys, bedding and hygiene items to provide relief to the devastated country. The monies collected were delivered, and the items were loaded on a cargo ship that will arrive in Tacloban, Phillipines just in time for Christmas. St. John Fisher School students also recently raised more than $400 to help children in Ghana receive an education. Fr. Peter Dakurah, a visiting priest from Ghana, shared stories about life in his village where people rely pri-

marily on subsistence farming and find little opportunity to earn money. Obtaining a primary education can alter an individual’s journey. Fr. Dakurah said that $3 covers the cost of educating a kindergartner, while $30 pays for a year of grade school or middle school education. St. John Fisher students will continue to raise funds for the children in Fr. Dakurah’s village through the end of the school year. Helping those in need closer to home, the St. John Fisher School community collected food items so that children and their families in the skid row area can enjoy a holiday dinner. St. John Fisher School is proud of its students’ efforts to serve and make a difference in the lives of others. — email reports

Looking Forward To Clear Vision In 2014

Publisher’s Note (crazy talk)

• The old Big Daddy Nikon camera is looking forward to its first service and cleaning in five years. The camera is getting old. It was some time after changing lenses at a PVBA girls’ 5th/6th Grade basketball game at PV High last week that it decided not to take any more pictures. It says “ERR” on the display screen and everything is black - not a good sign. The camera has taken almost 400,000 pictures - so we’re hoping a professional

PVP-Youth Sports News

www.peninsulaPANORAMA.com

cleaning and service will bring the camera back to life in time for PVBA action in January and the next edition of PVPPANORAMA on Jan. 11 We are not prepared for a major investment in a new professional camera, and recording everything via an iPad or iPhone will not do for this publication. So we’ll have to wait and see what Dr. Nikon has to say about the future of the old Big Daddy Nikon. In the meantime, we have our old back-up camera that worked just fine back in the Youth Sports News days and we’ll use that until something changes. So get ready for 2014 because we plan to comeback bigger and stronger.

PVBA Season Takes Over Winter Sports Basketball • The Palos Verdes Basketball Association 2013-14 season is underway with games at all four Peninsula gyms. Peninsula families can participate on boys’ and girls’ teams from the First/ Second Grade Division through the 8th Grade Division.

The Jaywaks and Bluenicorns have started the season undefeated in the 8th Grade Division. Also underway the Warriors and Ducks, both 2-0, in the highly competitive 6th Grade Division. Check out the next edition of PVPPANORAMA on Jan. 11 as we continue with PVBA coverage as well as a little high school and middle school basketball.
