Mum pulls kids from school

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE PARENT who says her

children were bullied in the

playground at Lyttelton Primary

has pulled them from the school.

Caroline Quinn told Bay

Harbour News that her two

daughters, aged six and eight,

would not attend school for the

rest of the term.

They will start at Governors Bay

School for term 3.

It comes after she raised

concerns with school

management that her daughters

had been subjected to bullying in

Community to

say goodbye

to Sumner

Village Green

Bullying fears prompt action

the playground.

She said the most recent incident

happened last Monday.

She alleges a group of boys

came over to a group of girls in

the playground and pushed her

eldest daughter to the ground and

punched her in the face.

She said another five-year-old

boy was then strangled.

But when she told school management,

they refused to believe

there was a problem, she said.

Other parents had told her their

children had also been bullied at

the school, yet management had

done nothing, she said.

“This denial that there’s even an

issue is so frustrating.”

The school’s Board of Trustees

held a meeting on Monday night

to discuss parents’ concerns.

The board issued a statement

saying it acknowledged the school

needed to do better when communicating

its policy and strategies

for dealing with behavioural

management issues.

It said a new committee had

been formed tasked with monitoring

and improving behaviour

within the school community.

“Input from parents and students

will be encouraged,” it said.

Ms Quinn, who has lived in

Lyttelton for 15 years, said she

pulled her children from the

school on Monday.

“I’ve promised them they don’t

have to go back there.”

She said the bullying problems

began when Lyttelton Main and

West schools merged.

Her eldest child had attended

Lyttelton Main.

Other parents were considering

pulling their children from the

school, she said.

“All I want is for the teachers

and kids to be supported in

Lyttelton. We only have one

school now.”

SO LONG, FAREWELL: Sumner residents

are preparing for the farewell of their

village green. Construction of the new

community centre, library and museum

on the site on the corner of Wakefield

Ave and Nayland St will begin in August.

Residents were at the green on Monday

to prune the roses so they could be sold

at a last hurrah party this weekend.

Tanya Michael, who helped

wanted to secure part of the

former Marine Tavern site

“The moral of the story with

the village green is that it proved

to be something that is really

needed in Sumner.”

She said the farewell this

weekend would be “emotional”.

Sumner resident Marnie Kent

said the green was a “bumping

together to enjoy Sumner.

Hekia Parata opens

Lyttelton school

• By Tania Green


has been operating out of its new

premises since May – but last week it

was officially opened.

Education Minister Hekia Parata

visited the new school on Thursday to

officially open it.

The school is a result of a merger

between Lyttelton Main and West


It was operating out of the two sites

until the end of April, before moving

into the new building.

The school came with a price tag of

nearly $15 million.

Ms Parata said the school was an

investment for the whole community.

She said the hall’s ability to double

as a theatre was “outstanding”.

“I think it’s an example to the rest

of the country.”

Principal Diana Feary said it was a

wonderful environment to be in.

“We just feel privileged to come in

every day . . . into a beautiful environment

that is created for our children

to have the best outcomes, and it’s

such a cool thing to have.”

It has a theatre in its hall, which is

used by The Loons Theatre Trust. The

trust was left without a home following

the earthquakes.

ABOUT $95,000 was

The event, held on May 7,

involved 10 couples having

to learn dance routines and

Resident Lucy Hone, a

like those are what made living

in Sumner so special.

“We love getting together

it’s a whole load of fun, these

events certainly bolster both

She was killed along

with her friend Ella

and Ella’s 49-year-old

mother, Sally.

Mrs Hone said studies

showed that continued

learning and strong

supportive relationships

were important for

resilience, as is having a

“So an event like this

Decision looms

over Redcliffs

School’s fate


its fate next week.

Members of the school’s Board of

Trustees will meet with Education

Minister Hekia Parata in Wellington

on July 7 where she will

announce whether the school will

remain open.

Board spokesman Mark Robberds

said he was confident there

would be a positive outcome after

commissioning a new geotechnical

report on the Main Rd site.

He said the new report provided

a robust solution to the minister’s

concerns about possible disruption

to education at Redcliffs.

Principal Rose McInerney said

the board had had a chance to

put a human face on the school’s

situation in a recent meeting with

Ms Parata.

She felt confident Ms Parata understood

the community’s passion

for its local school.

The school has been based at van

Asch Deaf Education Centre in

Sumner since June 2011, due to the

risk of rock fall.

In November Ms Parata made an

interim decision to close the school.

The school had until the end of

March to make a submission on

why it should remain open and

return to its Main Rd site.

All Blacks jersey for

Welsh quake supporters



Alderslade has repaid his

Welsh friends who supported

Canterbury following the

February 2011 earthquake in

true Kiwi fashion.

Mr Alderslade was in Dunedin

to watch the All Blacks beat

Wales 46-6 on Saturday.

During the pre-match celebra-


tions, he gifted a signed All

Blacks jersey to a group of Welsh

visitors, from where he used to

play rugby in Cardiff.

It was Mr Alderslade’s way of

returning the support his old

teammates gave to his province

after the earthquake.

Following the earthquake, The

Cardiff Blues Supporters Club


raised £10,000 (NZ$19,153) for

the earthquake recovery.

The New Zealand Red Cross

received 70 per cent of the funds

and the rest went to earthquake

survivor Stacey Herbert, who

had both legs amputated above

the knee after she was crushed

in The Press building.

The friendship goes back 36

years, to Mr Alderslade’s decision

to follow the All Blacks on

the Welsh centenary tour in

1980. He went from London,

where he had a job lined up,

to Cardiff for the test match

He soon fell in with some

Welsh fans who “adopted’’

him and he never went back to

London, instead staying on in

Cardiff for a year playing rugby

and working.

“I was treated like a king

and they were fantastic. After

36 years, we’ve always kept in

touch,’’ Mr Alderslade said.

The All Blacks jersey will be

auctioned off to raise money

for former Welsh centre Owen

serious spinal injury at the 2014

Bird numbers rise

SOOTY shearwaters, also

known as mutton birds,

are making a comeback in

a remote Banks Peninsula

breeding colony.

A headland at Stony Bay,

about 10km from Akaroa,

is one of the last remaining

sooty shearwater – or

Titi – breeding sites in the

South Island.

Monitoring from the

recent breeding season

has shown the number of

young has grown from 27

last year, to 38.

City council Banks

Peninsula ranger Paul

Devlin said the increase

was a sign that efforts

made to control predators

were paying off.

The city council helped

build a predator-proof

fence around the colony in

2010 as part of a joint project

with the Department

of Conservation and the

Banks Peninsula Conservation


The fence encloses about

half a hectare of land on

the edge of the cliffs.

Market Stays Strong

Market Update News from Craig Prier

“With recent reports showing available properties across New Zealand to be 40% fewer compared

to this time last year there is ample evidence to suggest to owners considering going to the market

that now be a great time. A simple equation of high demand and a low a supply of stock means that

properties will spend less time on the market and prices will remain firm, if not continue to increase.

However, for owners wanting to take advantage of good market conditions it is still important

that you continue to present your properties well, invest in good marketing campaigns and

seriously consider the most appropriate method of sale.

Marketing without a price still appears to be the most effective method to ensure the best price

is achieved particularly in comparison to marketing a property with a fixed asking price. The

risk with this method is that you may undersell the property by pricing it too low or, conversely,

lose potential buyers by pricing it too high. We recommend you talk to any one of our sales team

to advise you on the most effective method of sale for your property.”

Community Involvement

10 staff assisted again this year for the Ronald McDonald House Collection, and we had a fantastic

response with the changed collection venue to Redcliffs New World. Thank you to all those who

generously donated and stopped to have a chat, contributing to a wonderful charity. We also

decided to help out the local SPCA, so the admin staff got their bake on to supply delicious treats

to purchase for a donation in the office. A huge amount of cupcakes were consumed that day, but

all for a great cause, raising $125 to contribute to the SPCA.

Tips for selling your home this winter:

• Give Each Room a Cosy Touch

A folded drape over an arm chair, a fleecy throw over on the foot of the bed, warm hues on a rug,

or even a crackling fire if you have a log burner, are all small additions that could make a world of

difference to prosperous buyers.

• Show How Your Outdoor Areas can be Utilised in Winter

A covered porch, or outdoor heaters/fire place is an excellent asset to show off in those wintery

months. Be sure to turn on outdoor lights, and keep outdoor furniture immaculate – placing a couple

of thick throws on top of outdoor couches and chairs will give the finishing touch to furnishings.

• Don’t forget the Exterior

Maintenance is crucial, especially in Winter when lighting is a lot harsher. Minor repairs need to

be tended to, windows should be clean, and verandahs swept clear of leaves, as this will make a

world of difference to your houses appearance. Winter may not be the best month to show off your

garden, however you can still use structural elements for interest. Large urns, rock walls, wooden

furniture and other garden decorations can help a buyer see potential even in the colder months.

Your Local Views

Shop local; support community





chairwoman Sara

Templeton says

it is important to

shop local

LOCAL independent

shops are at the heart of our

village communities. They are

owned and staffed by locals,

who in turn support other local

suppliers and businesses and


sponsor local sports teams.

They are bumping spaces

where residents share news

and connect, building stronger,

more resilient communities.

We would miss them terribly if

they were gone.

However, the advent of large

format shopping centres and

malls, populated with national


and international chains and

corporates has put significant

pressure on our local village


Port Hills

Labour MP

Ruth Dyson

says people

in the bays

area should

have their

say on how

they would like Linwood

College to look like in five

asty Bites

years’ time, with a whole

school rebuild planned.

MANY OF you will have

noticed billboards around

our suburbs talking about a

new school coming – have

your say. And you may have

talked with people at one


of our markets, outside the

supermarket or at meetings

about this new school.

This project is one of the

best examples of collaboration

and taking an opportunity

for improvement that I have

seen. It is called the legacy

project and is taking a very

frank look at Linwood College

shops. In these centres

with their highly visible

parking, stores where

we can buy more than

we would ever need and

poor environmental

amenity it can seem

easier for us to drive

in and shop without much

thought to their impact.

This is not a problem beyond


We have the Ferry Rd

(Woolston Village), Main Rd

(Redcliffs Village) and Sumner

Village Masterplans, each with

village shopping area designs to

try and encourage residents to

come, stay and shop. They make

point of having good urban

design and high amenity, but are

not easy to retrofit into current

spaces and it is hard to compete

with large private developments.

We can engage with locals and

businesses over how the plans

should be implemented and

spend millions making these

areas great spaces to be in, but in

the end that isn’t enough.

As an individual and as

communities we need to make

a deliberate choice to shop at

our local independent butchers

and pharmacies; to buy gifts,

clothes, flowers and meet for

coffees locally. If each of us

does this, even once a week, it

can make a huge difference to

our village centres, helping our

communities thrive. And best

of all, we don’t need to wait for

street enhancements – we can

do it today.

Have say on Linwood College

in the future, the fact that it

now has a new principal who

is very community focused

and outward looking, and the

complete rebuild of the school

which will be under way soon.

The project asks the questions

about what people think

of the school, what they would

like to see from the school,

and what it should look like in

five years’ time.

The community consultation

has been fantastic, with

many parents who are looking

at colleges in the future,

coming along and having

their questions answered in

an honest and open way. We

all know that there have been

problems at Linwood College

over the last few years. But we

know that it has an excellent

provider of quality education

for many local children and

with the right leadership, can

become a school of choice. The

fact that it will be brand new

is an added bonus!

It is a huge opportunity for

our communities to have their

say and be part of making the

new high school a place of opportunities.

All our children

and young adults deserve the

best possible education. This is

an exciting piece of work that

will deliver that in our community.

If you haven’t been part of

the discussion yet, it’s not too

late. The community meetings

have finished but you

can share your ideas online


Help build a great school for

our future leaders.

Board deputy

chairwoman Islay McLeod’s

(above) departure from the


Jocelyn Papprill, of Mt

Pleasant – I was saddened

to read the article on Islay

McLeod’s resignation from the

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board and her subsequent move

to Dunedin. Saddened on two

counts – firstly, that a committed

community activist is leaving

Christchurch after giving

sterling service to our city;

secondly, that she chose to speak

in such an intemperate manner

about the other members of the

community board. The latter

overshadowed the former; I am

left feeling rather less warm

about Islay McLeod.

I have found the current

I HAVE just returned to work

from a few weeks’ leave, where I

was lucky enough to travel to the

Isle of Man and watch the Tourist

Trophy. For those non motorcyclists

out there the TT is the

mecca of street racing, with about

40,000 odd people travelling from

all over the world to watch this

sport. It is both exhilarating and

amazing to be part of.

Now I hear you thinking, what

has the TT got to do with boating,

and I guess that’s a fair question.

When I was there, watching the

racers travelling at speeds in excess

of 200mph (320km/h) I started

to think about risk. These racers

are on the top manufacturers’

motor-cycles, have the best safety

gear available, and are highly

experienced in their sport. They

are super fit both mentally and


When it comes to boating, I see

a different side of risk. As mentioned

above, the TT racers have

minimised their risk to what they

and the racing organisers see as an

acceptable level. However, I still see

some of our water users going out

serving elected members of the

Hagley-Ferrymead Community

Board to be most able. Their

‘lack of local government experience’,

as expressed by Islay has

certainly not been a hindrance

as they have been well advised by

council staff and ably chaired by

Sara Templeton, making competent

decisions in sometimes

difficult circumstances.

Board members like Alexandra

Davids and Joe Davies

have brought new energy and

perspectives to the table and I

have found our two city councillors,

Yani Johanson and Paul

Lonsdale, most approachable

and helpful. I am grateful that

our community has been served

these past three years by an

proactive board that has the best

interests of the area in mind.

Islay, may your return to

Dunedin be a good move for

you. Your work for Christchurch

is appreciated; a pity you chose

to disparage other good-hearted,

hard working people in your

50 years’ service recognised for yacht club stalwart

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

THE ADVICE from the

recipient of a Life Time Award

for yachting is to do what you

enjoy and just keep on doing it.

Margaret Park received the

award last week for 50 years’

service to the Christchurch

Yacht Club in Redcliffs.

In that time she has sailed

solo, with her husband and

seen their children sail on the

harbour and the estuary.

Mrs Park was called on

stage at last week’s Canterbury

Yachting Association’s annual

awards evening, along with

another member of the

Christchurch Yacht Club, as well

as two members of the Naval

Point Club Lyttelton.

“It certainly was very special.


It was just part of the yachting

awards night . . . it’s not just

at the club I do these things,

I’ve been involved in different

contests along the years, my

husband’s the chief umpire,”

Mrs Park said.

She said for her it was all

about seeing the “youngsters”

coming through the club and

doing well.

“I do really enjoy it and I don’t

plan on stopping any time soon.

It’s great seeing the youngsters

doing so well and watching

them improve – it’s what it’s all

about really,” she said.

Fellow member Trevor

Kite won the off-the-water

administrator of the year. Mr

Kite has been a member for 21


Mr Kite said he was honoured

to receive the award on Friday

night, which he had never been

nominated for.

“It was quite special, because

I think there was 11 clubs

involved on the night and a lot

of volunteers in total . . . they

filled up the function room at

the Cashmere Club,” he said.

Paul Roe and Malcolm

Snowdon from Naval Point

Club Lyttelton were jointly

awarded Yachtie of the Year

after their gold medal winning

performance in the National R

Class championship.

annual meeting on Sunday

evening, which saw Jo Hooker

leave the seat after two years,

and Richard Ineson become the

Parents of Year 6 students are

encouraged to take a good look

at their child’s full primary school

when choosing schooling for


Why change schools when you don’t

need to? Full Primary schools are tried

and tested and have developed in

innovative and cost effective ways since

their inception in 1877. They are as

important to the provision of education

in 2017 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful?

• They have evolved over time and have responded to the

different demographic changes since 1877.

• They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for

families and respond to community needs.

• They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know

curriculum levels from Level 1 – 5 who have had the same

teacher training as teachers in other Year 7 and 8 school


• Teachers in the student’s current full primary school

know about individual students learning progress and

learning style from Year 1 – 8.

• Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture,

innovation and child centred learning sum up full primary


• Year 7 and 8 students are the leaders and role models

along with the adults in a full primary school with

opportunities to nurture Year 1 – 6 students.

• School organisation in a full primary school fits the needs

of students not the timetable.

• All Year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership

opportunities, sporting opportunities, school community

job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model

expectations. They are seen by others in the school as

the leaders and younger students look up to them.

• These opportunities and strategies to build leadership,

key competencies and resilience are available to all Year

7 and 8 students in a full primary.

Lincoln Primary

What does the research tell

us about the learning needs

of Year 7 and 8 students?

• Curriculum that is relevant, challenging,

integrative, and exploratory

• Multiple learning and teaching


• Assessment and evaluation programmes

that promote quality learning

• Organisational structures that support

meaningful relationships and learning

• Educators who value working with the

age group

• Courageous, collaborative leadership

• School-wide efforts and policies that

foster health, wellness, and safety

• Multifaceted guidance and support


• School-initiated family and community


Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school

type or school buildings that make the difference for Year

7 and 8 students. It is instead the innovative approach to

learning and the attitude of professionals toward this group of

students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the

leadership, teachers and non-teaching staff are committed

to the social and emotional development of this group of

learners. Full Primary Schools are providers of Year 7 and 8

education in every way that other types of schools are.

And also

The research also provides insight into

what works for Year 7 and 8 students:

Ministry of Education by Dinham and Rowe

of the Australian Council for Educational

Research. 2007

• From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’,

there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching

which students receive at all levels and stages of

schooling is of major importance in influencing

achievement outcomes for students.

• While productive and positive student-teacher

relationships are identified as an important

characteristic of highly performing schools

catering for middle years’ students, it needs to be

acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders

at all levels of schooling is what works.

• It is therefore debateable whether at least some

aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle

schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and

effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling

approaches focusing on quality teaching and

enhanced learning’ rather than on school type.

Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to

support learning and what happens across the school

to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive,

physical, emotional and social needs of Year 7 and 8

that makes the difference. Not school type.

The research on middle schooling and its implications

to provide quality education to Year 7 and 8 students

is as applicable to full primary school as it is for other

schooling types.

The Person Controller

by David Baddiel

From the author of THE PARENT AGENCY comes a thrilling, funny and

touching new adventure. Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical

(because that’s impossible for a boy and a girl). They do like all the

same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very

good at. They aren’t that good, however, at much else – like,

for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies.

Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video

game controller, which doesn’t look like any other controller

they’ve ever seen. And it doesn’t control any of their usual

games. When the twins find out what it does control,

though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And

the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like that…

The Bourne Enigma

by Eric Van Lustbader

The new action-packed thrilling adventure of Jason Bourne co-inciding

with the new movie starring Matt Damon. Jason Bourne is in Moscow

to attend the wedding of his old friend and fellow spymaster General

Boris Karpov. But amid the celebrations, the General has an important

message to deliver to Bourne - ‘a lifeline,’ he says, ‘for the end of the

world’. Before Bourne can decipher this enigmatic warning, Karpov’s

wedding ends in chaos and bloodshed. Bourne discovers that the

Russian has betrayed the Kremlin to forewarn him of the crippling

disaster about to engulf the world. Bourne has just four days to discover

the nature of the catastrophe and halt it. To get to the truth, Bourne must

first track down an infamous and elusive arms dealer - a man both he

and Karpov have been hunting for years. With the clock ticking, Bourne

follows a labyrinthine path that weaves from the underbelly of Moscow

to the pyramids of Egypt and the war-torn border between Syria and

Turkey as he races to stop a world-threatening conspiracy in its tracks.
