Questions raised over new

Church Bay development

• By Sarla Donovan

CHURCH BAY residents were

scheduled to meet last night to

discuss plans for a commercial

development in Church Bay.

The Bay Harbour News

understands some members of

the Church Bay Neighbourhood

Association have misgivings

about the design.

Spence Developments are

proposing to build a supermarket

and 111-space car park, four

shops, a cafe and a 30-seat cinema

at 139-143 Marine Drive, behind

the On the Spot store.

Church Bay resident and neigbourhood

association committee

member Tracey Ower said the design

needed to be sensitive to the

area. “We are a semi-rural, coastal

environment and at the moment

the proposal doesn’t reflect the

place at all.”

Last night’s meeting followed

on from one held last Tuesday

night, when about 100 people

crammed into the Diamond

Harbour community hall to hear

developer Doug Spence, planning

consultant James Hook and

architect Dean Grant speak about

the plans.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

CHURCH BAY residents aren’t

totally convinced about the new

commercial complex planned for

their sleepy settlement (see page 1).

A public meeting was held last

week to give developers the opportunity

to explain the complex

to locals.

It got the tentative thumbs

up but quite a number of the

people there were from Diamond

Harbour.

The Church Bay Neighbourhood

Association was scheduled to meet

last night, and the design of the

complex appears to be a concern.

Ferrymead Bays’ football side

made it through to the final of the

annual Coastal Spirit under-19

tournament at the weekend before

going down to Dunedin’s Green

Island 1-2 (see page 19). Sho

Mathieson took the MVP award,

and watch out for 15-year-old

Mika Rabuka, who coach Chris

Murphy predicts has a big future.

Almost 250 sign petition

in bid to save ferry terminal bus park

• By Julia Evans

A 248-SIGNATURE petition

pleading for bus parking to be

saved at the Diamond Harbour

ferry terminal has been sent to

Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

A letter and the petition was

sent to the mayor, Environment

Canterbury chief executive

Bill Bayfield

and Lyttelton

Port Company

chief executive

Peter Davie by

the Diamond

Harbour

Community

Richard

Suggate

Association.

Association

chairman

Richard Suggate

expressed the community’s

concerns regarding decreased

bus access to the ferry terminal

from three spaces to one.

The petition aims “to ensure

that within 100m of the terminal,

there is adequate bus parking

on the Lyttelton wharf and

that there is a drop-off/pick-up

zone for private vehicles.”

Mr Suggate said the elderly,

disabled or those with heavy

parcels will have to walk from

the “unsafe” Norwich Quay.

And, he said, even then there is

no guarantee there would be a

drop-off zone at all.

“The request is that the city

council takes up its responsibilities

as the port company

shareholder and as the provider

of public transport facilities, to

put in place safe and easy public

access to the Diamond Harbour

ferry.” The association also

wants ECan to ensure the bus

service has adequate access to

Lyttelton wharf by the ferry terminal

and for the port company

to ensure transport access is

maintained.

But Mr Suggate said the

association is pleased the port

company is looking at alternative

options.

An urgent meeting was held

by the Banks Peninsula Community

Board with the port

company, ECan and the city

council last Monday.

It was resolved the port

company and ECan would

investigate other options and

report back to the board.

Adriaan Beddie

Using dance as a way

Originally from South Africa, dance teacher Adriaan Beddie

now lives in Scarborough with his husband Richard. He talks

to Sarla Donovan about having the best job in the world

JOY: Adriaan Beddie teaching a dance class at his Tuam St studio.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Where did your passion

for dancing come from?

It really came from a love

of music. As a kid I loved

dressing up and if a song came

on, I just danced to it. And in

South Africa, when we have a

barbecue (a brai) we normally

have music playing in the

background and everybody

just dances; my family is quite

into dancing. None of them

are trained, but they love it.

I’m from a pretty big family –

my grandmother was one of

21 children – so a birthday

is also an excuse for a gettogether.

Tell me about your life in

South Africa.

I was born and raised in

Johannesburg in a family of

three boys, in small town

called Alberton. We didn’t

have a lot of money; we’d just go

to school and back so no money

for recreational things. It wasn’t

until I was 19 when I met one

of my ex-partners – he was a

manager at a dance studio and

that’s when it came to pass – I

was there every day and they

were like: “Hey, do you want to

dance?” They threw me in the

deep end and I started

teaching.

Wow, straight into teaching.

You must have had some

talent.

(Laughs) The only talent

I had was shaking my hips.

I wasn’t a big people person

because I was in the closet

back in the day – being gay

– but as soon as I came out, I

just became this other person

and fell in love with talking

to people. I think that’s where

the passion for teaching came

about, just being with people

and seeing the joy dancing

could bring them. I always say

teaching is my passion and I

use dance as a tool to connect

to people.

What bought you to

Christchurch?

One of my ex-partners, his

family lived in Ashburton and

we made the jump of coming

over. But it’s a small town

and if you don’t fit in it’s very

hard. They ran a newspaper

article on the gay boys in

town. It was like ‘whoa . . .’

We were supposed to live in

Christchurch but we landed

on February 24, 2011, just

after the earthquake so we

had to stay in Ashburton.

I had an insurance

background so I worked at

the EQC, but we used to

own a dance studio back in

Johannesburg with about six

staff and 200 people going

through the doors each month

so it was a pretty big dance

studio. When we came over

I started with very small

groups – but if you don’t fit in

and don’t feel the right vibes

it’s hard. So I went home and

came back in 2013 but things

didn’t really work out for us so

we went our separate ways. I

was planning to go back home

and then I met Richard and

he threw a spanner in the

works.

to connect with elderly

And now you’re married?

Yes I am, going on two years

in February – very happily

married. We have two cats, our

babies which we love to bits. We

live in Scarborough and I teach

at the Sumner Centre, the Mt

Pleasant Community Centre and

at my studio in town.

You must miss your family.

Have they been over to visit?

Yes, mum and dad came over

to the wedding last year – mum

complained about the weather

– even though it was February!

But we had some nice days and

then we had the Valentine’s Day

earthquake which scared them

a lot but they’ll definitely come

back which is great. The wedding

was held in Motukarara, a

place called Iris Gardens. It was

beautiful.

What do you like doing when

you’re not working?

I call myself a house executive

– I clean and do my own

training and do a bit of dancing

around the house. I try to

keep up-to-date with the latest

things, creating routines and

just spending time reading up

about different types of neurodegenerative

diseases to see how

dancing can help these people

with neurological problems.

Where did the idea of running

HAPPY COUPLE: Adriaan

and Richard Beddie on their

wedding day.

classes for Parkinson’s disease

sufferers come from?

Just before I met Richard I lived

with a lady called Molly, who is

one of my very good friends; she

was 93 and she was forced into a

rest home after she broke her foot

and couldn’t take care of herself.

You can see the decline in people

who don’t want to be there. So I

thought, maybe, I should put on a

dance class. Then I read up about

dancing and dementia and how

music brings out these memories.

One of Richard’s friends

who is involved in exercise as

medicine introduced me to a

rugby coach who was diagnosed

with Parkinson’s disease. He

also showed me a video about

Parkinson’s and how dancing

– because of the movement,

the change of direction and

the heart rate elevation – could

help them; not just on a daily

basis but also delay the disease’s

progress. So, I thought, yes, here’s

something I could do because I

love dancing and I love music. I

just have a knack for choosing the

right music that triggers certain

memories for people. We started

training together and I got hold

of the Parkinson’s Society and

talked with physiotherapists

who deal with Parkinson’s to see

how I could incorporate certain

movements into dancing. It has

been quite transformative.

It must be rewarding.

It’s quite astounding. When

you see someone with terrible

dyskinesia and they’re just all

over the place; then, when they

start moving to a waltz and just

forget about the steps and listen

to the music and the cues – it

dissipates, it disappears. And for

a moment in time, they’re free.

The name for my dance studio

‘Dance to be Free’ came about

from that.

You must feel like you’ve got

the best job in the world.

It’s not a job when you like

it! What’s the saying – if you

love what you do, you never

have to work a day in your life?

Beginners – who maybe don’t

get the steps after the first or

10th or the 20th time sometimes

say: “Oh Adriaan, don’t you get

irritated with us?” I’m like: ‘No, I

love it. As long as you’re smiling,

I’m happy.’

Do you ever get sore feet?

I sometimes teach nine hours

a day back-to-back so when I

get home – my husband’s really

great, he cooks the dinner

Tuesday-Thursday. I just feed

my face, jump in the shower and

go straight to bed. Our routine

in the morning is to get up and

do yoga together for 15min – I

can’t live without it and that’s our

special time together before we

head out.

Himalayan

mountaineer

Ed Cotter

passes away

ONE OF New Zealand’s best

known mountaineers, Edmund

(Ed) Cotter died in Sumner last

Thursday, aged 90.

Mr Cotter took part in the

first New Zealand Himalayan

expedition in 1951 with Sir

Edmund Hillary, two years

before Sir Edmund and Tenzing

Norgay became the first to

ascend Mt Everest.

The two were part of the

expedition, along with George

Lowe and Earle Riddiford,

Mr Cotter featured in the

Bay Harbour News in August

after a large ginger cat began

visiting residents at Edith

Cavell Rest Home in Sumner

- including Mr Cotter, who

became one of the cat’s favourites.

The ginger tom was nicknamed

Mandu, in Mr Cotter’s

honour, and was last month

adopted by Mr Cotter’s daughter

Jacqui.

Mr Cotter died peacefully at

Edith Cavell on October 19. A

funeral will be held at The Mc-

Faddens Centre, in St Albans,

Christchurch, at 1pm today.

Farmers meet

in Little River

to discuss

meat prices

ALLIANCE GROUP’S shareholder

farmers were told at a meeting in

Little River that lamb, sheep and

deer prices are likely to remain firm,

while cow and bull prices could

soften.

Heather Stacy, Alliance’s general

manager livestock and shareholder

services, said prime beef prices

should remain similar to last year at

$5-$5.40/kg early season and $4.80-

$5.20/kg post-Christmas.

However, she says bull and cow

prices are under pressure and softening

compared with last season.

These are projected to be about

$4.00-$5.00/kg early season and

$4.70-$5.00/kg post-Christmas.

She was outlining the forecasts

during the Banks Peninsula stop of

an annual roadshow in which senior

executives travel the country, updating

shareholders on the co-op’s

business.

“The influence of global supply

out of Brazil, the United States and

Australia is having a downward

draw on prices,” she told shareholders.

Farmers at the meeting were told

demand for venison is very strong,

but a risk exists that its high price

on restaurant menus will prompting

diners to substitute other meats.

Unearthed

Excavating our stock room we have brought some

hidden gems to light.

Historic through to recent works will be displayed in

an exhibition unlike any we have held before. Any

artwork can be taken on the purchase day for the

ticket price, no need to wait until the end of the

show. You can also take the silent auction option,

make a respectful written offer to the artist. At the

end of the show the highest bid will be considered,

perhaps it will be yours, a chance to get an artwork

‘for a song’.

prints by emerging and established artists. Some

of the participants are Robin Slow, Brent Forbes,

Anna Dalzell, Chris Pole, Jane Downes, Hamish

Southcott, Carol Stensrud, Chris Moore, Rae West,

Jill Perrott, Barb Warren and many more.

That esoteric artwork that has haunted you for

years may be back to tempt you, others may

seem like old friends, whatever, it will certainly be

a diverse and intriguing show. Presales welcome.

DESIGN: A concept drawing showing the entrance to a proposed new shopping development on Marine Drive in Church Bay.

Questions raised over Church Bay complex

•From page 1

Diamond Harbour Community

Association secretary

Christine Turner said it had

given people the opportunity to

raise their concerns.

These included the look of

the buildings, noise and light

pollution, car park size, signage,

traffic, and whether there was

sufficient demand.

“When one man asked if we

needed a movie theatre – three

quarters of those in the hall said

‘yes.’ People also love the idea

of having petrol pumps. There

was concern over what would

go into the shops. People definitely

don’t want fast food and

they assured us that wouldn’t

happen. It could be offices or a

chemist.”

Ms Turner said the aesthetics

of the development were of primary

concern. “We don’t want a

concrete monstrosity.”

Although the community had

many questions, the general

feeling at the end of the meeting

was very positive, she said.

“James Hook explained everything

extremely well.”

Gaye Wood, who is in her

70s, spoke towards the end

of the meeting about how the

development would benefit

her and other older residents

in the area, gaining a round of

applause.

Ms Wood told the Bay Harbour

News she had moved to

Diamond Harbour two-and-ahalf

years ago, for the lifestyle.

“Half of the residents here are

over 50. If the development

goes ahead, it means I can stay

here longer.”

It was “inevitable” Diamond

Harbour would need additional

amenities as the population

continued to increase, she said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Diamond Harbour is the

fastest growing community on

Banks Peninsula.

On the Spot store operators

James Grant and Laura Palmer

intend to run the supermarket,

although they are not associated

with the development.

Mr Grant agreed the meeting

had been very constructive.

“Every bit of feedback was taken

on board and the feedback (from

customers) in the store has been

overwhelmingly positive.”

A resource consent application

is expected to be lodged with the

city council next month.

PERMANENT:

A temporary

crossing point

at the corner

of Oxford and

Winchester Sts

may become

permanent.

Roading changes likely

• By Sarla Donovan

PROPOSED changes to bus

stops and parking in central

Lyttelton would result in

the loss of five parking

spaces.

The city council wants to

make the temporary pedestrian

crossing point at the

intersection of Oxford and

Winchester Sts permanent

and replace the two existing

bus stops on Winchester

and Oxford Sts, which are

positioned close together,

with a single bus stop

outside Lyttelton School on

Oxford St.

This is expected to

improve the sight lines

for pedestrians using the

zebra crossing on Oxford St

next to Sumner Rd, as the

current bus stop limits visibility,

the city council said.

New P3/P120 parking restrictions

are also proposed

outside Lyttelton School to

assist the pick-up/drop-off

for parents, and for daytime

visitors to the school and

surrounding area.

The proposals would

mean some on-street parking

being removed near

the Winchester St crossing,

north and south of the

proposed new Oxford St

bus stop and at the Oxford/

London St intersection.

No-stopping signs would

be installed instead.

The city council said the

no-stopping spaces would

improve visibility for pedestrians

crossing the roads,

and for passengers getting

on and off buses.

If the two existing bus

stops were removed, five

on-street parking spaces

would become available,

with three additional spaces

beside the Lyttelton School

PERFORMERS: Year 8 pupils Annelise Clark and Coby Jansen

made $63.90 busking which will go towards their school camp

fees. Riley Matla (above right) received a $500 Harvey Norman

voucher for his fundraising effort.

Pupils pay their own

way to school camp

• By Julia Evans

PARENTS FROM Heathcote

Valley School won’t have to empty

their wallets for this year’s school

camp.

The year 7 and 8 pupils have

been out in force busking, dog

walking, cleaning, hosting bake

sales and delivering copies of Bay

Harbour News to raise money to

cover their own camp fees.

The final stash has been tallied

and the 32 children have raised

$4400 between them.

Some pupils ended up with

more than they needed, which

was donated to the general fund

to help out any children who

hadn’t quite met their target.

For every $100 they earned, the

pupils were put into a draw to win

a $500 or $250 Harvey Norman

voucher, which the company donated.

Riley Malta took home first

prize and Mia Fenton, who was

away sick during the draw, won

the second prize.

Now they can look forward to

the camp and spending four days

at Peel Forest Eco Lodge learning

teamwork, self-management, confronting

self-doubt and learning

more about the environment.

The camp is often seen as the

highlight for the senior pupils

every year.

Diamond Harbour gardeners

judged a cut above the rest

DIAMOND Harbour School

took second in the national

Garden to Table school of the

It was the first year the

awards have taken place and

they attracted 70 entries

nationwide from children and

schools.

Judges included gardening

journalist Lynda Hallinan

and chef and restauranteur Al

Brown.

Garden to Table executive

officer Linda Taylor said the

judges were “blown away” by

the standard of applications

received.

“It’s fantastic to see such

being active and learning

key skills that will see them

through life. All the judges

were incredibly impressed by

the drive children showed for

gardening,” she said.

Diamond Harbour School

programme co-ordinator Lisa

Hurry said the garden provided

jobs for everyone from muscle

work like moving compost and

cleaning out the chicken coop

to garden art, seed-sowing and

watering.

“This diversity allows everyone

to participate, creating a

sense of community within the

garden,” she said.

Lyttelton-based

navigational safety officer

Gary Manch has some

simple tips to help you

keep safe on the water this

summer

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

News

Simple tips for keeping safe

Pirate’s Corner

BAY HARBOUR

PAGE 15

If you’ve been keeping up with

the news lately, you may have

noticed stories about the road

toll creeping up, in spite of the

efforts of regulatory authorities

to make our roads safer.

As I was thinking about this, it

came to mind that even though

motor vehicles and boats are

completely different, they have

one big similarity – they are

controlled by humans.

This, unfortunately, is the

reason we tend to have a lot of

incidents, both on the water and

off. Mechanical failure rarely

leads to injury or death – it’s

more often the behaviour of

drivers that is the problem.

When you think about it,

one moment of inattention or

carelessness on the water can

have disastrous consequences

not only for the operator – who

makes the mistake – but also for

the innocent victims who are out

enjoying the water.

As Environment Canterbury’s

navigation safety officer, I have

no control over what happens on

the roads but I do have the ability

to try to change behaviour on

our waterways.

As we head into the 2017/18

boating season, here are some

tips I would ask you to take on

board.

•First up, learn the boating

rules because the more clued up

you are, the more likely you are

to enjoy your day safely.

•Don’t drink alcohol until

you have returned to the shore

because alcohol can cause both

skippers and passengers to behave

recklessly.

•Ensure correctly-fitting lifejackets

are worn at all times on

the water because they may save

your life.

•Carry two forms of communication

that will work in the

area you are boating in.

•Last, but not least – be

courteous to other boaties, and

respect swimmers and divers

who are in the water nearby.

If you comply with these

simple requests we should have a

safe, incident-free summer.

Take care out there,

TECHNOLOGY:

Make sure your

boat has two

reliable forms of

communication.

WASTE: A working party has been reconvened to discuss

options for the disposal of Akaroa’s wastewater.

PHOTO: STEVE WILLIAMS ​

Wastewater group called on

to consider new information

THE AKAROA wastewater

management working party has

reconvened after more technical

information regarding the outfall

plan has come to light.

The Banks Peninsula

Community Board received a

report from city council staff,

saying the party has been

called back together after the

Environment Court granted an

extension for a decision on the

plans for Akaroa’s wastewater

outfall.

“It has become necessary to

reconvene this working party so

that board members, community

members and rūnanga

representatives can consider

options for the re-use of treated

wastewater in Akaroa,” the

report said. The working party

originally met from February

to April and agreed on a joint

statement regarding the disposal

of Akaroa’s wastewater before

the plan went out for broader

consultation.

The report said the objectives

of the working party included

assisting the city council to

investigate and consult on

options for wastewater disposal,

considering the solutions

presented by city council staff

and independent experts

and keeping the community

informed on the plan’s progress.

Fire recovery is the November

festival’s theme and walkers will

get a chance to see the natural

regeneration that has occurred

in areas of Hinewai Reserve after

the huge fire in 2011, as well as

the major planting effort taking

place at Ohinetahi Reserve since

the Port Hills fire.

Several landowners are opening

their properties for the day,

giving walkers a chance to appreciate

the range of biodiversity

conservation taking place on the

peninsula.

There will also be a chance to

visit a remote area above Little

River, all the covenants in French

Farm, and a walk on the wildside

in Fishermens Bay.

Some popular favourites from

past years are running again

including grunts and dykes

Working on ambitious goals

Labour MP

for Port

Hills Ruth

Dyson says

the new

coalition is

set to hit

the ground

running

with an ambitious first 100

days programme

THE ELECTIONS in Germany

were held over the same

weekend as the election in New

Zealand, and the latest news

from there is that there may not

be a Government formed before

Christmas.

People in New Zealand were

getting frustrated at the length

of time it took to form our

Government but it was only a

fortnight after the final election

results were known. I guess that

we are still not used to MMP –

even though we have had this

system of voting for over 20

years.

But we now have a Government

formed – a Labour-led

Government with coalition

arrangements with NZ First and

a confidence and supply agreement

with the Green Party.

All three parties will have

Ministers, with Labour and NZ

First in Cabinet and Labour and

Green Party outside Cabinet.

So how will this work? Well,

for the last nine years, we have

had a National-led Government

with various support arrangements

and partners. The last few

years has had Act, United Future

and the Maori Party keeping

National’s majority in Parliament.

The arrangements are not

dissimilar now – just very different

parties and very different

policies. And I think it will work

very well.

Labour has set out an ambitious

100-day plan so after the

commencement of Parliament at

the beginning of November, we

are going to be very busy.

Free tertiary education (University

and Polytechnic) starts

on January 1, 2018, as does

increases to allowances. Rental

homes will be brought up to dry

SOIL

AND

Fire rages, homes at risk

and warm standard, and overseas

resident speculators won’t

be able to buy our homes. Sale

of state houses will stop, paid

parental leave will be increased

and we will restart contributions

into the NZ Superannuation

Fund. Work will start on the

clean-up of our rivers and lakes

and climate change targets set.

It’s big and ambitious – and

needs to be done – and we can

do it. Our two partners will have

ambitious goals too and we will

support them.

But for me, work on the mental

health and well being of our

residents is the most important

and pressing issue. We cannot

accept 10 attempted suicides a

day in our region. We cannot

accept that people are not able

to get help because of lack of

resources.

There are always many issues

to tackle but for me, that’s

number one. We will work hard

in this Government for a fairer

and kinder country. Thanks for

Principal’s Report

Kia ora koutou. Talofa.

Kia Orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste and

Kumusta. Greetings to

our Community.

The content of this

page shows the busy

life of a NZ secondary

school. Education is

about seeing the whole person and how these

developmentally positive experiences enrich our

students’ understanding of whom they are and

broaden their outlook. They nurture students’

classroom focus by contextualising their learning

and sowing the seeds of positive ambition.

Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed

curriculum’. This means the school, students and

families knowing:

1. students’ past learning and skills as they come

into LC from our partner primary schools and

building on these successes

2. how the learning at LC connects to what the

students want to do when they leave school.

“What are my post-school pathways and how

does my LC learning help me to achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the individual

and strengths-based.

Coast to Coast Update

Article by The Press’ Robert van Royen

– Sept, 2017 (paraphrased)

Six Linwood College pupils are competing in the

Tough Mudder event alongside Richie McCaw

in Auckland in November, thanks to iSport

Foundation and Coast-to-Coast Rangers.

Linwood College’s Mapu Uasi, Moahengi

Ngauamo, Juilan Elia-Lui, Tupito Saofai and

Kyle Amer couldn't contain their excitement

when they heard the news that they would

be competing. They will all do the 20km mud

and obstacle course, which is designed to test

physical strength, stamina and mental grit.

Connected to these student pathways are the

national development of Kāhui Ako-Communities

of Learning. Education, unfortunately, can have

its share of short-term fads, but Kāhui Ako are

not one of them. In fact, effective schools and

communities have taking this approach for

decades. Kāhui Ako are schools collaborating

to ensure that the student is at the centre of all

activity, not just in the individual school that they

are in at the time, but as students progress in

education from early childhood centres through

their schooling to tertiary and the workplace.

Linwood College is in two Kāhui Ako. Tamai is

the schools of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Ave,

Linwood College, Linwood North, Tamariki,

and Te Waka Unua. Aupaki is Heathcote Valley,

Linwood College, Lyttelton, Our Lady Star of

the Sea, Mt Pleasant, Redcliffs and Sumner.

One practical outcome already of our Kāhui Ako

has been a specific focus on enrichment with

students from our schools getting together

for very successful eight week enrichment

programmes in Maths, Debating, Pasifika and

with Technology to come.

Finally, schools can be complicated places. If

for any reason you would like to talk to me about

anything please contact the office so we can

arrange this. My door is open.

Ngamihinui – best wishes,

Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki (Principal)

McCaw's Foundation contacted Jess De Bont,

who is currently training the pupils for next year's

Coast-to-Coast and suggested the Tough Mudder

event to her.

"It's an amazing

opportunity –

once in a life time

stuff," she said.

“Auckland is a

really good lead

up for the Coastto-Coast,”

said

Jess De Bont.

Planting at Charlesworth Reserve

Linwood College’s Year 7 & 8 students did an awesome job during a day of

planting at Charlesworth Reserve according to Karla Guerin, the Kiwi Can

Coordinator from the Graeme Dingle Foundation.

Karla said that the planting day (late last term) was very hot and windy but

the students all persevered and gave it their best. She said that it was great

to see everyone fully engaged and work alongside each other with great

teamwork.

Cultural Festival

NZ Army Visit

College's Car Club

Linwood College students’ Car Club had a great

time at Ara Institute of Canterbury over Term 3,

learning about all things cars. Under the careful

guidance of Tutor Bernie Blanken, students

learnt how to change tyres, jump-start flat

batteries, strip down and rebuild a small fourstroke

engine, disassemble and reassemble a

gearbox as well as automotive welding.

Students thanked Bernie by buying him a big box

of chocolates at the end of the course.

Drama Review

Year 10’s mini production is going to

be #fairestofthemall. This story is

an adaption of Snow White with an

improvised and modern twist.

Masking Up

Part of the Year 9 Drama curriculum is to focus

on Drama technologies, so last term students

worked on Mask Making.

This is an important technology which has

links to Greek Theatre and Commedia

Del'Arte, both types of Drama which the

students will be researching when they get to

their NCEA studies.

Harbouring Ghosts’, a play

about healing past mistakes.

'The Change Over' Review

As a Christchurch resident from the Eastern suburbs, the

movie ‘The Changeover’ is certainly well worth watching,

not just for its plot but for the visually striking scenes of

post-quake Christchurch. Aerial views show the lead

character’s home surrounded by a sea of vacant lots and

low-lying swampy stretches. Looking across to the city,

with randomly plonked containers and road works, these

scenes also tell part of our story. Linwood College is listed

on the credits as many of our students were acting extras.

an adaptation of Hamlet’s

‘Ophelia Thinks Harder’.

Linwood College presented three cultural

dances at the 2017 Primary Schools’ Cultural

Festival. Filipino students performed a sacred

dance which was followed by a Samoan dance,

‘Do it, do it’ siva.

The final item was

a kapa haka and

song ‘Kapi-oi-oi’.

Our students made

us proud while

demonstrating

the rich cultural

diversity of our

College.

The New Zealand Army Band paid Linwood

College a visit late last term and provided a very

enjoyable lunchtime musical ensemble.

Bays’ fight to tournament final

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

FERRYMEAD BAYS came

within a whisker of winning

the annual Coastal Spirit

under-19 tournament held at

Cuthberts Green over Labour

weekend.

The team dropped just one

game on their way to the final

before going down to Dunedin’s

Green Island 1-2 in the

tournament final.

Bays were unbeaten on the

opening day of the tournament.

They began with a 1-1 draw

with Waimak United before

defeating Coastal Spirit 3-0

and Hornby United 2-0.

On Sunday, Bays defeated

Selwyn 2-0 in their first game

of the day to book a spot in

semi-final.

Later that day, they played

Green Island in their final

pool game and went down 0-2.

With both teams already assured

of a semi-final spot, they

elected to rest key players.

Bays finished second in pool

B to set up a semi-final match

with pool A winner Dunedin

Technical.

Bays dominated the southerners

from the beginning and

quickly found themselves two

goals ahead. They rotated the

bench in the second half and

eventually won 4-0.

In Monday’s final against

Green Island, Bays found

themselves down 0-1 at the

half-time break after a dubious

penalty decision.

Bays coach Chris Murphy

said the team were unlucky to

not win a penalty of their own

midway through the second

half.

The game produced two

late goals with Green Island

all but killing off the match

with a second goal before

Bays scored a late consolation.

Bays’ mainland premier league

squad regular Sho Mathieson

was outstanding during the

tournament and took out the

MVP award.

“Mathieson’s experience

showed over the three days

and he was in another class to

a lot of the players he came up

against,” said Murphy.

The Bays coach also

highlighted the play of

15-year-old midfielder Mika

Rabuka who looks set to

become a MPL regular in

seasons to come.

DRIBBLING Bays’ midfielder

Mika Rabuka skipped through

the Hornby defence in their 2-0

win in pool play.

Early wickets

hurt Sumner

in loss to

Heathcote

THE LOSS of three quick wickets

early in their innings was too much

for Sumner to overcome as they

went down to Heathcote at the

weekend.

Sumner were defeated by five

wickets in the senior A one-day

match at Heathcote

Domain.

After setting the

hosts a total of 187,

Heathcote reached

it in the 41st over.

Sumner made a

fiery start and were

looking good at

40-1 before the loss of three quick

wickets had them at 41-4.

Captain Johnny Beveridge (above)

then steered the ship with a knock

of 63, recording his second half

century in as many matches.

His 71-run partnership with

Michael Newton-Vesty helped

restore the innings for Sumner

before the regular fall of wickets saw

them all out for 187 in the 43rd over.

Sumner picked up the early

wicket of Heathcote captain Matt

House before John Garry (45) and

Nick Durham (43) took Heathcote

close to the halfway point.

Matt Mealing then continued to

take Heathcote towards their target

with a knock of 55.

DO YOU NEED A

CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT?

It’s a common question.

Most clients are referred to chartered accountants by their existing

clients and professional / personal networks. Advertising may have

some effect - but generally it’s minor. The reason for this is that

the role of a chartered accountant is a very trusted one and like

all service roles is based on interpersonal relationships. Let’s face

it,you will be sharing your personal financial information with your

accountant, so you need to be able to trust them.

What is a Chartered Accountant? In reality anyone can

call themselves an accountant - you do not need to have any

qualifications or experience to work as an “accountant”. In contrast to

call yourself a Chartered Accountant you need to have a tertiary level

accountancy qualification, the correct types of work experience, pass

post graduate exams set by Chartered Accountants Australia / New

Zealand, meet on going professional development requirements and

meet ethical and technical standards. All client contact is bound by

confidentiality.

What does a Chartered Accountant do? Most people think

that accountants only prepare financial statements and tax returns.

That is referred to as Compliance in accountancy speak and does

form a part of the needs of most clients. The other part of the role

is usually termed as BAS or Business Advisory Services. BAS can

encompass a huge range of skills from Business Planning and Cash

flow Forecasting to Succession planning and Development of your

Businesses Core Values. BAS adds value to clients i.e. it can help make

their business and personal lives more successful, Compliance can be

seen as a requirement imposed by tax law so is often viewed in less

favourable terms.

Who Needs a Chartered Accountant? The majority of

salary and wage earners do not require an accountant as their tax

is deducted at source via the PAYE system. If you have other forms

of income that are not taxed at source such as business, rental or

investment income then you should consider using a Chartered

Accountant to assist you meeting your legal requirements and to help

you build success.

At Craig Roberts & Associates we have in excess of a decade

of experience with business success across Christchurch and

throughout New Zealand. We are a small firm who can give you the

time and commitment you need. We enjoy helping you and your

business grow and succeed.

discuss how we can help you on 03 943 1950 or email
