Boycott ends cafe business

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A COMMUNITY boycott has

led to the planned shutdown of

the Te Hapua: Halswell Centre

cafe.

Last week, the city council announced

that a new cafe operator

would be sought to take over

from Wellington-based cafe,

Wishbone.

Wishbone is to leave the centre

after it came to a “mutual agreement”

with the city council.

In February, the Western News

reported that Halswell residents

had called for a boycott of the

cafe because it was not a locally

based business.

Wishbone general manager Jo

Parang said it had suggested to

the city council that it find a new

operator after public “backlash”

contributed to its business decision

to leave.

The Western News has learned

that the boycott has had a

large commercial affect on the

cafe.

Ms Parang said some residents

felt it was “quite unjust” that a

Wellington company was being

branded as local.

The Halswell Community

Project, which called for the

boycott, said it had highlighted

the importance of getting a cafe

operator more in

touch with the local

community.

Chairwoman

Chrys Horn

(right) said she

would not “pass

judgement” on

departing cafe operator.

the cafe, but “imagined” it was

operating at a loss.

The Halswell Community

Project believed the city council

should be supporting local business.

The city council declined

to comment on whether Wishbone

was being replaced due to a

boycott from the community.

In February, the Western News

also reported that Ms Parang

said the cafe needed to be

accepted by the community.

She said Wishbone had been

working with the city council

to improve the ambience of the

cafe, including new furnishings

to make it feel more homely.

Deputy Mayor Vicki Buck said

she would not comment on the

reasons behind the change in

cafe operators.

She said it was irrelevant

and not appropriate for her to

comment on the reasons for the

change.

But she felt the community

would be pleased with the outcome.

A request for proposals is being

run by the city council.

The closing date for tenders is

August 3.

Quarry’s $1m underpass

• By Tom Doudney

FULTON HOGAN has spent

$1 million on installing an

underpass underneath a public

road to connect two sides of its

Miners Rd quarry in Yaldhurst.

The underpass, which links

the two 40ha sections of

quarry either side of the road,

is expected to reduce transport

costs for the company by saving

30,000 truck movements a year.

While its processing plant is

on the east side of Miners Rd,

most of its extraction is taking

place on the west side.

An electric conveyor belt

more than 1km long will

transport material for crushing

from one side to the other and

this is expected to be up

and running within the next

month.

Fulton Hogan environmental

manager Peter Savage said

getting the material from the

extraction areas to the

processing plant currently

involved a 2.5km round trip

for each truckload and the

company had wanted to find a

better way.

“Digging up Miners Rd

wasn’t an option,” Mr Savage

said.

“So quite simply, we ran the

numbers on the pure economics

of putting in an underpass

as opposed to carting with the

trucks.”

Not having to send so many

trucks across Miners Rd

would improve the traffic situation

for other road users as well.

“You can’t really put a price

on the safety aspect of taking

those trucks off the road and

obviously it also reduces the

emissions from those trucks,”

Mr Savage said.

The reduction in truck movements

was expected to reduce

the company’s CO2 emissions

by between 130 and 180 tonnes

a year.

Mr Savage said the conveyor

belt was “like a giant Meccano

set” which would have

extra sections bolted on to it as

needed to reach new extraction

areas in the quarry.

In Brief

SMOKEFREE ROCKQUEST

Three bands from western high

schools will compete in the

Canterbury regional final for the

Smokefree Rockquest at The Bedford

this Friday. High school bands from

Canterbury competed in heats last

month and now the top 12 bands

are set to play off for first and

second place prizes and a spot in the

national final in September. In The

City from Christchurch Boys’ High

School, Toastduty from Middleton

Grange School and Ancora from

Burnside High School will all

compete on the night.

FUNDING GRANTED

The city council has put aside

$500,000 in the 2016-17 budget to

fund additional work required at

Mona Vale gatehouse and a building

within Halswell Quarry Park for

commercial activities.

HALSWELL SKATE PARK

A final recommendation on the

site of the Halswell skate park and

recreation area will be made by the

end of next month. The Riccarton-

Wigram Community Board has

confirmed it expects to make a

final decision on the site on July 27,

following months of community

consultation. The city council is

looking at three possible locations

– Knights Stream Sports Park,

Halswell Domain and Westlake

Reserve.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

BLOOD SAVES LIVES

Steve Heap, at

McMaster & Heap,

has recently

performed 2 blood

transfusions in 5

days on young

dogs at the

Practice, both cases

in his own time.

This procedure

isn’t common

practice but when

you have a patient presented pale,

collapsed and bleeding out essentially, you

have to be geared up to immediately transfuse.

You also need a capable skilled team around

you as this isn’t a one person

job as you’ll see below. A blood

transfused patient needs to be

intensively monitored by a nurse to

make sure we don’t get transfusion

reactions ( ie tremors, vomiting,

labored breathing, swelling and skin

reactions, seizures, coma or cardiac

arrest). The important things are

having a team capable of performing

the transfusion and closely

monitoring the patient for reactions.

“Poppy” the Hungarian Visla made

a full recovery after her near death

experience of ingesting rat bait.

“Bella” the Airedale unfortunately

wasn’t so lucky. She initially improved,

but after a few weeks of intensive care

and huge amounts of love, was very sadly put

to sleep after complications with her kidneys.

This article is specially dedicated to Bella.

Obviously both cases required blood fast.

A dog can take another dogs blood ONCE

without being cross matched to check blood

type. We obtained 500mls of blood and 200mls

of plasma for Bella from the After Hours clinic

on a Sunday and Steve obtained 400mls of

blood from Clive, a German Short haired

pointer, for Poppy. We have the transfusion

bags and filters at work and the blood is

delivered slowly via IVF pumps over 2-3 hours.

A vet must sit with the patient the entire time

and monitor vitals. The blood is delivered via

large bore catheter into the cephalic vein. Both

dogs accepted the procedure

well – admittedly both

were very ill.

Having blood readily

available is helpful. We

didn’t but luckily were

able to source it fast. In

the past I’ve used Lola

for obtaining blood

from but since she’s had

cancer and received

chemotherapy, she now

isn’t a suitable candidate.

Six year old Bella presented initially for

unexplained bleeding from her bowel. After

a lengthy work up involving blood testing,

radiographs, abdominal ultrasound, bladder

catheterization and intensive care monitoring,

she deteriorated quickly and needed a blood

transfusion in the hope it would save her

life. She was losing large amounts of blood

from her urinary system and large bowel. Her

kidneys were failing, she was depressed and

inappetant. Despite intravenous fluids and

over 10 different medications she was still

deteriorating. We still don’t really know what

caused the huge blood loss but the transfusion

initially helped, providing her with clotting

factors, blood and an immune system to fight

whatever was going on.

Open 7 days

phone 338 2534, Fax 339 8624

e. mcmasterandheap@yahoo.co.nz

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

Poppy, the 14 month old Visla, knibbled on

RAT BAIT 3 days before presenting near death.

This poison destroys platelets and coagulation

factors and causes their victims to bleed to

death because they can’t clot blood. Within

hours Poppy would have died due to blood

loss into her chest, preventing oxygenation and

ventilation. She presented collapsed, was as

white as a sheet and in total respiratory distress

– she couldn’t breathe at all. Our amazing

team moved quickly, calling in Steve and Kirsty

who worked together over 4 hours – Kirsty

draining the blood from her chest ( the blood

was around her lungs) and Steve transfusing

her with Clive’s blood. She was monitored by

two nurses throughout

the procedure.

Her recovery was

instantaneous – after

being transfused she

basically leapt into the

back of the car, totally

transformed. She was

monitored carefully

at the After Hours

clinic that evening

and returned to us the

next day.

These two cases

highlight to me the

need for speed and

urgency in seeing

these cases ( whether

it be late at night or over a weekend),

dedication to our patients, commitment to our

clients and skilled and passionate professionals

prepared to go the extra mile. Our nurse took

the call from Poppy’s owner seriously, late on

a Thursday night when we were getting ready

to close. At that stage we had no idea Poppy

had ingested rat bait. She was just quiet and

very lethargic. Not the norm for a 14 month

old Visla! Our nurse also asked the colour of

Poppy’s gums and was told they were white!!

This raised alarm bells. Our consulting vet that

night was fully booked until 7pm so our nurse

called Steve, who immediately responded to

the call.

A special mention must be made to the

dedicated clients who trusted in us and

allowed us a chance at saving their dogs by

giving blood, which in itself isn’t without risks.

When we undertake a transfusion, we have

no real idea of outcome but we all do our very

best. Our patients all deserve a chance.

Dr Michele McMaster

This is specially dedicated to “Bella” who

was so stoic and fought so hard to make a

full recovery. She was a patient I’ll never

forget. No matter how sick she felt, she

always had a tail wag for me. She was

kind, trusting of us all and brave until the

end. Not being able to pull her though

affected us all. RIP dear Bella. You are

never forgotton.

Low cost fruit and

vege plan spreading

• By Tom Doudney

A SOCIAL enterprise

supplying low cost fruit

and vegetables which

started in Bryndwr has

taken off across the city

and is now spreading

around the country.

Reverend Craig Dixon

started Food Together as

a non-profit fruit and vegetable

co-operative about

30 years ago when he was

vicar of Bryndwr Anglican

Church.

“It started as a need in an

area of kind of low socioeconomic

households

who were faced with limited

income and a limited

knowledge of what to do

with a number of fresh

food products,” he said.

After operating the

single hub in Bryndwr for

many years, Mr Dixon

decided to expand the

service following the 2010

and 2011 earthquakes.

“We contacted a number

of churches, as we

generally work through

churches and community

groups, out around the

he said.

Since the earthquakes,

Food Together has gone

from having one Christchurch

Hornby business group

gains momentum

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A NEW Hornby business

networking group is gaining

momentum.

The business group was set up

late last year by ANZ Hornby

manager Wendy Varney and

Harcourts Hornby branch manager

Hannah McGowan.

“When I did research, I found

there wasn’t really anything up

and running,” Ms McGowan said.

She approached Ms Varney

who got on board before the

group slowly started growing.

“Hornby is growing so much

. . . it is a huge industrial and

commercial hub in the city. We

thought it would be good getting

people together to talk,” Ms

Varney said.

The aim behind the group is

to get businesses together as well

as supporting charities including

the Women’s Refuge New

Zealand.

“We have a staff donation

where we donate money to

charity . . . we were able to award

Future Youth with $10,000 this

year to get more kids to go on

the development programme,”

she said.

While the suburb does not

have a Hornby residents’ association,

Ms Varney said it is

important to know what is happening

in the community.

“We invited Mike Mora into it

because we think it is important

to know what is going on in

Hornby,” she said.

Mr Mora said the Riccarton-

supports the development of the

group.

Ms McGowan said the group

has been beneficial for finding

like-minded people.

Alex O’Keefe

Bringing experimental artist’s work

Canterbury University’s Alex O’Keefe, 28, is bringing

to life one of the artworks thought up by Len Lye, a

Christchurch artist known for experimental films and

kinetic sculptures. Hannah Samson-Barry chats to

him about motor-cycle racing and skateparks

Tell me a little about your role

at Canterbury University.

I work in the field of

mechanical engineering research

at the university. Part of this role

is a small amount of teaching

and mentoring. I really like

working at UC because of the

exposure to a wide range of

different fields of study in such

close proximity, its a 5min walk

from fine arts to firing lightning

bolts in the electrical engineering

department.

You made the move from

Queenstown? Why the shift?

I came to Christchurch because

after working for a year in

Queenstown after I finished high

school I realised that I wasn’t doing

anything with my life, so my

parents suggested engineering as

a pursuit. Canterbury University

had the best reputation in New

Zealand and it’s reasonably close

to home. So I enrolled for first

year engineering and moved up

here.

Can you tell me about life

before you became a doctor,

what was it like growing up in

Queenstown?

Queenstown was a crazy place

to grow up. It’s the adventure

capital of New Zealand so it was

a lot of fun. Small town vibes but

with more of a city feel so we got

the best of both worlds. It’s safe

and fun and great.

How did you get into mechanical

engineering, so you

mentioned your parents?

Yes, my parents recommended

it as a course of study. I had

no idea what it was other than

basically building bridges. After

the first year of engineering you

figure out what the different

disciplines are and mechanical

engineering was a fit in terms of

the fact that I like solving practical

problems and working with

my hands and doing projects.

How did you first become

involved with Len Lye’s work?

After I finished my degree I

was looking for employment

as a mechanical engineer and

I was obligated to be in the

jobs that I could find I found

enough interest in or thought

I’d be happy there. I looked at

the postgraduate curriculum at

Canterbury University and one

of the projects that was offered

was this Len Lye project that I

work on and to me that sounded

like the biggest challenge I could

imagine. So that’s the first time I

heard of Len, I researched him,

figured out who he was and his

background and decided that

this was the project for me.

How is it bringing these great

ideas and designs to life?

Len Lye projects are fascinating

to work on because part of it

is that you get to search through

all of his notes, drawings and all

of the material that he produced

on an artwork.

Things that other people never

get to see. You get to work with

small models that he made so

then your job as an engineer is to

translate all of these intentions as

an artist into a piece of art that

he would have been happy with.

So it’s inspiring as you get to

see subtleties of the reasons why

he wanted this motion because it

had these intricacies and chaos

in there that was so exciting. So

when you find these things out

and come to understand what

Len was trying to create it’s really

fulfilling when you get to

that point when you’ve worked

towards an art piece that will be

a Len Lye artwork.

It’s also kind of stressful because

Len gives you these crazy

challenges where he says shoot a

30m lightning bolt across the sky

and I want things to lift up 100m

into the air.

So he was limitless in his imagination

but as an engineer you

are very limited in what you are

capable of so you have to come

up with clever ways that you can

bring to life Len’s ideas, even

though they were grand scale

and crazy.

to life through engineering

Why do you persevere with

these projects?

That’s a really good question.

Something I ask myself and

I have no answer too. I guess

because we are working towards

a goal and I can see the end

result, and the end result is that

we get to share Len Lye who is

one of New Zealand’s and the

world’s most renowned artists

of the 20 th -century. We get to

share these visions that he had

with everyone and show why this

guy was such a spectacular and

inspiring artist. So I see the end

goal as being a really fulfilling

result of these projects.

After spending so much time

there, what do you think of

Canterbury University?

I do think it’s quite a spectacular

place and I do think the

pursuit of engineering, whatever

discipline it might be, or the

sciences for that matter is the

best pursuit for anyone who is

mechanically or scientifically

minded. By going through the

engineering courses at Canterbury

you not only give yourself

the skills, and technical skills

you get from the course, but it

gives you a new analytical way of

looking at your life and it allows

you to take on projects outside

of work like motorbike racing

which I would have never done

without being at Canterbury

and understanding that you can

achieve these things and these

people that do them, they are not

this tier above, your just being

confident enough to tackle these

problems.

Do you get any down time

when you’re not working on

these projects?

Yes I have down time. But in

my down time I like to work on

other projects. I treat these projects

as a job but outside of that I

have time to skateboard and ride

motor-cycles and pursue other

interests of mine.

Tell me more about the

motor-cycle racing, how did

that begin?

Being in the mechanical engineering

department engines and

motor vehicles are an integral

part of that whole course and

community. So I was placed in an

office with two other motor-cycle

racers and as with anyone that

seems to be with the engineering

department post-grad they were

infectiously enthusiastic about

the sport and it rubbed off on me

and I got tricked into being part

of it. No regrets at all.

What’s your motor-cycle of

choice?

FXR 150 small cubic capacity

race bike called a bucket. Because

bucket racing is heaps of fun.

What is your favourite place

to go on your motor-cycle?

Up the Summit Rd and around

Godley Head in the summer,

or at the Mike Pero Motorsport

Park (Ruapuna).

How about skateboarding,

didn’t you help bring about a

new skatepark in the city?

As part of a marketing campaign

an American company

Levi’s and Monster Children sent

their professional skateboard

team to Christchurch to help

build a new skatepark for the city

which had suffered from the major

earthquakes. So they linked

up with me and a bunch of other

local skateboarders and we got

together with the youth and we

built a small DIY skatepark at

the stockyards, so give something

back to the community.

They gave something back, I

just helped. It is there to be used

for everyone and we encourage

anyone to maintain or improve it

as they wish.

What are the best places to

skate?

Christchurch is a great place

to skate due to wide range of

small skateparks in the wider

city. Templeton, Rolleston,

Belfast, Leeston, Kaiapoi all

have relatively recent skate parks

which offer a diverse range of

things to skate. These small

community initiative skateparks

are a great thing for kids and big

kids alike.

Years 7 – 13

School, curriculum

revamp progressing

Resilience,

Respect

Kia ora koutou, Talofa, Kia Orana, Malo e lelei, Bula, Fakaalofa atu, Namaste,

Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the

Hornby High School community.

Have you heard the saying “May you be

blessed with interesting times”? People tell

me that it was an ancient Chinese curse. I

haven’t been able to find any evidence to

support that suggestion, but nevertheless

the sentiment is possibly true in many cases.

However, our interesting times at Hornby

High School are anything but a curse. They

are a time for excitement and anticipation.

Planning is now well under way for the

almost complete rebuild of the school. The

only existing buildings to remain are the

auditorium and music school, both of which

will receive a make-over. The Ministry of

Education is rebuilding the school for 800

students as our roll continues to show strong

growth. Why? The word is out: Hornby High

School is a great place to be.

Running in parallel with the building rebuild

is a “rebuild” of the junior curriculum.

Students learn best when their learning

connects across subjects, when it is related

to real-world problems, and when it is

“culturally responsive”. That is, when it has

meaning in the lives of individual students

and their own cultural backgrounds. That

is our goal. Our aspiration is to have every

student find coming to school to be the most

compelling thing in their day. I use the word

“aspirational” because it is one of those

things we will always be working towards,

although we may never fully achieve it. Over

the next three years (the approximate time

span of the rebuild) we plan to rebuild our

junior curriculum to achieve just this.

Put simply, we see our curriculum in Years 7

to 10 as offering students the opportunity

to discover their learning passions, while in

Years 11 to 13 (the NCEA years) they have

the chance to develop those passions. It is

too early to state what that curriculum might

look like, but it is likely to include a good

dose of technology (ranging from traditional

engineering to 3D printing, robotics and

coding), liberal arts (drama, music and the

visual arts) and the sciences, all built on a

solid framework of literacy and numeracy.

Perhaps most importantly though we will aim

to have these subjects explored by students

while considering real-world problems.

If you have any thoughts on these issues,

please feel free to send me an email and let

me know. In the meantime, as soon as we

have some firmer drawings and plans for the

new buildings, we’ll be keen to show these

around the community to let you know what

is happening.

You can follow my thinking on issues that

are both specific to Hornby High School and

also of more general educational interest on

my Principal’s blog “Whakatauki: He waka

eke noa”, after all we are indeed all in this

together – https://whakataukihewakaekenoa.

Project K students returning from their Wilderness Adventure.

Programme boosts

students’ life skills

The Graeme Dingle

Foundation is named

for its founder, one

of New Zealand’s

renowned adventurers

and explorers. In

establishing the

foundation Graeme’s

goal has been to support

our young people to

develop strong life skills

and grow to become

their potential.

At Hornby High School

we are very proud to

be supporting students

with three of our

acclaimed life skills

programmes being Kiwi

Can, STARS and Project

K.

Kiwi Can is an energypacked

programme all

Year 7 students take part

in weekly. It teaches

values such as integrity and respect, and

delivers fun-filled learning.

The STARS programme involves working with

Year 12 and 13 students and training them as

Peer Mentors for the Year 9 students.

At Orton Bradley Park the students and

their mentors engage in a range of team and

confidence building exercises while at the same

time getting to know each other and build those

important relationships that will carry our

new students successfully through their time

at Hornby High. Once back at school the Peer

mentors have delivered weekly lessons to Year

9s.

Graeme Dingle, Shontelle Wallace and Noeline Allan (Graeme Dingle

Foundation Regional Manager).

Project K is a programme designed for Year

10 students. It has four programme stages: an

induction, a Wilderness Adventure in which

the students are taken into the mountains for

three weeks; a Community Challenge; and a

12-month Mentoring Partnership with trained

adult mentors.

Our Project K students tell us that being on

the programme increases their self-belief

and confidence. It has also been proven to

significantly improve academic performance.

Last year Shontelle Wallace completed the

programme and was selected to deliver a

speech at Government House at the annual

excellence awards.

Year 10 students attended the annual camp held at The Boyle River Outdoor Education

Centre. Pictured here, from left, are Eliza Tyrell, Haydon Dickie, Lewis Bradford and

Marylynn Matagi, students from the NCEA Level 2 Hospitality class who did all the catering

for the hungry Year 10 students.

Cactus successful and popular

The Combined Adolescent Challenge Training

Unit and Support programme – known as

CACTUS – is an initiative to develop and

support youth to achieve outrageous goals

and co-operate with others through physical

activity.

Each programme runs for three sessions

each week for eight weeks starting at 6.25am

every Monday, Wednesday and Friday

morning.

The programme finishes with “The Longest

Day” graduation during which participants

combine all the skills they have gained and

celebrate their successes with family/friends/

support networks.

Almost 100 students have taken part in the

CACTUS programme since it started in term

3 last year.

encouraged to take a good look

at their child’s full primary school

when choosing schooling for

2017.

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

types.

• 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

schools.

• 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

approaches

• 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

services

• School-initiated family and community

partnerships

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.

ways of helping the

homeless

MANY OF us have a heart for

the homeless.

I have learnt not to judge

anyone’s circumstances, lest we

be judged ourselves, but to at

least help others to the best of

our ability.

To whom much is given,

much is expected, is not only

biblical but also an act of being

socially responsible.

Many organisations are taking

• Mark Thomas -Fire Risk

I WAS woken by a phone

call about 11pm last Monday

from a friend who lives on the

opposite side of the city.

She was concerned because

her daughter, who lives next

door, had an unusual burninglike

smell in her home that

could not be traced.

She didn’t know what to

do and didn’t want to bother

this issue seriously and already

assisting the homeless here.

I feel we could always do

more. Why is it that we want our

bus users to be warm waiting

for a bus in our new bus shelters

during their 5-10min wait while

others do not even have shelters

at all for a home 24/7.

I would love to see a very

simple solution albeit temporary

to at least keep them together and

covered as winter fast approaches.

For example, the news recently

showed maraes up north

paving the way, reaching out to

immediate need where need is

not presently met. This allows

a one-stop shop for others to

by inappropriately placed

could not escape. The

fibreglass insulation and

associated dust was getting

hotter and hotter.

We get lots of calls to false

alarms. People smell smoke

when a nor’wester is howling.

Others report smoke

which turns out to be mist.

We never complain, because

I would like something similar

here in the city. A central

point to keep their social interaction

together and offers the

needed help in practical ways.

I have spoken with founder,

and primary carer and facilitator

of Help for the Homeless

Amy Burke who agrees we

need core facilities for those

living in cars, yet she has

struck red tape when trying

to arrange this for the homeless.

I would love to see an

immediate response that at the

very least opens the use of our

community facilities – become

available for showers for our

homeless without red tape.

What a difference it would

make also if we could use the

vacant halls in the east with

bathroom and kitchen facilities

now empty and not used,

yet red tape again stops our

ability to help others.

I will leave you with this

saying: “A community is judged

by the way it treats its most

vulnerable”.

all of us would prefer to go to

10 false alarms like this rather

than not be called to the one

that escalates enough to kill

someone in their sleep.

If you’ve ever wondered

‘should I call the Fire Service?’

Yes – do it.

On the other hand, a

colleague in this office called

in a car fire the other day when

and so much more

From bookworms to reluctant readers, the Original Children’s

Bookshop caters for all.

Finding a genuine, specialist bookshop

nowadays is a true joy, and Christchurch is

privileged to have the Original Children’s

Bookshop, still locally owned and still

going strong after 40 years in the city.

now located at 227 Blenheim Road, the

store is a bright, welcoming, airy

space which caters for lovers of

children’s books and games of all

ages. it is designed to be ‘kidfriendly’,

with cosy seating areas

so they can try out books before

they spend their pocket money,

and regular activities such as

book-signings by authors and

story-telling sessions.

The team who work there are experts;

all have worked as teachers or librarians

and they share the same love of children’s

literature. Owner/Manager Mary Sangster

says that “all the staff are passionate about

children’s books and about placing the

right book into a child’s hands.” They are

available to offer advice and suggestions,

whether the book is for a baby or a

choosy teenager. There are heaps of board

books and picture books for their very

youngest customers, and a wide range

of chapter books, activity books and

poetry for middle readers. Whether

their customers love fairy stories,

funny stories or action, they can

recommend books that they are

sure to love. The ever-growing

Young adult market is also well

catered for, including books from

all genres and from around the

books never go out of style, and

Christchurch Intermediate

Schools

Specialists in Year 7 and Year 8 Education

OPEN NIGHTS 2016

Intermediates are two year

coeducational schools specialising

in the education of students in their

early adolescence, 11-13 year olds.

Intermediates are exciting places for students to

begin their adventure into adolescence. In addition

to providing a rich, age and stage, middle-yearsspecific

curriculum in a stimulating, challenging and

rewarding environment, intermediates cater for many

interest groups and clubs.

Early adolescence is a unique and

special time of immense physical,

intellectual, emotional and social

development. These changes create

specific needs and challenges that

are significantly different from

the needs of younger children or

older adolescents. Teachers in

intermediate schools are highly

qualified, experienced and skilled

teachers of students in their early

adolescence. Our teachers establish

strong relationships and particularly

enjoy working with this age group.

It is not surprising that New Zealand and overseas

research concludes that the quality of teaching is

one of the most significant factors influencing how

well students learn at school. Given that quality

teaching occurs in most New Zealand schools

regardless of their type, it’s only natural to consider

other factors that might make a difference for early

adolescents.

The young people at intermediates are changing

rapidly – physically, emotionally and socially.

Intermediates focus solely on this age group and

are well positioned to meet their needs. A mix

of specialist and home room teachers helps to

provide the choices, challenge, love for practical

activities and academic rigour in the students’

learning. Resourcing, both human and physical, that

is developed deliberately to meet early adolescent

student needs, helps to build self esteem, assist

students to develop and find strengths and links

learning with career aspirations. Teachers who are

focussed solely on the middle years are able to work

collaboratively to provide level-appropriate engaging

Our aim is for all of our students

to leave our intermediate schools

feeling confident in themselves

as successful learners and well

equipped with the knowledge, skills

and attributes needed for high

achievement not only at the next

stage of their formal education but

as life long learners.

programmes that connect learning to students’ lives

and interests and provide challenge for all students

to achieve to the best of their ability.

Current intermediate school students list these

points:

In particular, early adolescents

enjoy learning that is authentic and

meaningful to them in an environment

where they have choice and a real say

in what and how they learn. Students

enjoy the challenge of new and

different learning opportunities that

are provided by specialist teachers in

technology, science, performing arts

and visual arts. There also remains an

emphasis on continuing to develop

skills to a high level in literacy and

mathematics.

1. “There are more children of my own age here

because our school takes all the year sixes from a

few different schools and they come to one school.

And because we’ve got bigger numbers of pupils

we can have more sports teams and … there’s

something for everyone” Y8 child

2. “Our school has different specialist teachers for

subjects like music art, P.E. and technology, so we

get used to that – which is good preparation for

secondary school” Y7 girl

3. “At intermediate school everything is for our two

years (age group).” Y8 girl

4. “I like that we don’t have to look out for little

children. That was neat at our old (primary) school

but it’s nice to just have our own age here. Y7 boy

Intermediate schools work very

closely together to collectively provide

a wide range of extracurricular

opportunities for students. For

example, there are a number of interintermediate

sport competitions such

as swimming, winter sport, summer

sport, athletics and cross country.

5. “It’s good that we don’t have big secondary kids

here. We can worry about them when we’re older…

and then we’ll be big too. Y8 boy

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Scheme Helps Pasifika

Tradespeople Succeed

every year ara institute of Canterbury offers Pasifika Trades Training

scholarships for anyone of Pasifika descent to train in trades fees-free.

The iniTiaTive was created to

help Pasifika people contribute to the

rebuild of Christchurch and is run in

collaboration with leaders from the

Pasifika community and government

agencies with Pasifika church ministers

playing a key role in nominating people

and offering pastoral support.

Because everyone is different, there

are a number of options and pathways

available to help Pasifika men and women

start a career in the trades. To make

sure every student succeeds, support is

available from the Centre of Māori and

Pasifika achievement, with pastoral care

advisors helping not only with study

matters but with anything that impacts on

students completing their studies.

Trades training has evolved and that’s

good news for learners. Classroombased

theory sessions are being phased

out in favour of shorter, more frequent

theory sessions in new workshops so

that students can practice what they have

learned straight away. The new style will

suit many Pasifika learners, especially

those who would rather be using their

hands than sitting for long periods of

time.

ara recently upgraded the trades

training facilities with $18.9 million of

government investment so that workshops

are even more like what students will find

out in their industry.

ara has close connections with

employers and the programme is designed

to get graduates out working in industry

after they graduate.

Mid-year intake is now open with July

starting dates for electrical engineering,

Fabrication, Furniture and Joinery,

General engineering, and Plumbing.

Carpentry, Painting & Decorating and

Plasterboarding start again in august.

Digital Technologies Design, and Visual

Communication and Workshop Materials

are the learning teams that are involved in

the initial stages of a project to build two

weather stations in separate locations.

The first challenge for term one was

to use the project plan for the school’s

STEM project as a basis to design a Year

11 Digital Technologies course that met

the individual needs of the students,

curriculum delivery requirements and

NCEA assessment requirements. It’s a

popular course, with enthusiasm for it

fuelled by the work students do in this

learning area in the junior school.

The students opting for this course

have a range of skills and abilities.

Individual courses were designed to

establish the base skills needed to begin

the construction, and programming of

the electronic system that will measure,

record and display weather data.

The main emphasis for the first term

was to establish a suitable level of coding

skills in all the students. The learning

progress has enabled all students to be in

a position to participate directly in the

coding of the electronic recording system

for the Weather Stations.

Some students are operating at the

higher skill level and they will write the

code to drive the dynamic data driven

website that will display the data. These

students will be assessed against Level 2

NCEA standards.

Electronic systems have been the

focus of learning and assessment this

term. Arduino boards have been used

to construct small to medium sized

projects. These projects enable students to

understand the electronic componentry

needed in the construction of the weather

stations.

New Christchurch schools

to offer students more

AVoNSIDE GIrLS’ and Shirley Boys’ will

be the first single sex secondary schools in

New Zealand’s history to share a campus

– an arrangement their principals say will

enable the schools to offer their students

new opportunities.

The schools are to be built on part of

QEII Park, next to the Christchurch City

Council’s Eastern recreation and Sport

Centre.

Avonside Girls’ High School Principal

Sue Hume says the campus will be brand

new and state of the art.

“Each school will have its own teaching

spaces and students will spend most of

their day in a single sex environment.

That’s important to us. research shows

that single sex education benefits both girls

and boys…boys do better academically

and girls participate more. That’s because

they have space to learn and focus away

from the opposite gender,” says Sue Hume.

John Laurenson says the new campus is

a step forward.

“Because we are going to work together,

we’ll be able to offer more. For example,

we’ll be sharing some facilities, including

a performing arts auditorium, theatre

and cultural space, which enables us to

build bigger and better assets,” says John

Laurenson.

Another benefit is that the students

will be able to interact with and learn

alongside peers from their partner school.

“Students from both schools will share

buses to and from the campus, they’ll all

be able to use the café, our new library

and learning centre and our other shared

facilities. This means that not only will

they have all the benefits of a single sex

education, they’ll have social opportunities

not available at other single sex schools,”

says Sue Hume.

The Ministry of Education is currently

working on how the new schools will

be zoned but the schools are focusing

on catering to residents who live east of

Colombo Street.

“Because we will be servicing a wide

area, we will be establishing a network of

buses to service the campus,” says John

Laurenson.

Best of all, Sue Hume says the new

campus will open in 2019 so is not too far

away.

“In fact many of our current students

will be making the journey to the new

campus with us and those who join our

schools in the next two years will spend

their senior years there. It’s been a long

and sometimes hard road to get to the

new campus, but we are confident we’re on

track to create something even better than

what we had before the earthquakes.”

Dual mother and teacher role

provides unique perspective

HAEATA CoMMuNITY Campus will

provide more than cutting-edge facilities

when it opens in 2017, says new Director

of Learning rebecca Wilson – it is a “once

in a lifetime opportunity” for students,

their whānau and the East.

rebecca’s three children will be among

the first students attending the new school

next year.

“As a mother and a teacher I know that

Haeata is the best choice for my kids,

as they will be valued for who they are

as individuals and given the chance to

explore their different passions through

Haeata’s personalised approach to

learning,” says rebecca.

“I also love the fact that they will be at

one school for the rest of their schooling,

as Haeata caters for students from years

1-13. They can stay together for their

education and not be separated.”

Haeata is a “new beginning” for the East,

says rebecca.

“The new campus will change things

for the better, providing a new learning

community with endless opportunities –

with students right in the heart of it.”

rebecca joins Haeata’s Senior Leadership

Team after 13 years at Bromley School, the

last two as Deputy Principal.

As Director of Learning at Haeata,

rebecca is part of a team designing

systems and structures that will ensure a

successful start in 2017. Some of the key

tasks include engaging with families and

students from the contributing schools,

strengthening relationships with Māori

and Pasifika communities, planning for

diverse learners and organising safe travel

routes to and from school.

“I have been in my new role since the

beginning of the year and not a day goes

by that I do not feel excited about Haeata

opening its doors,” says rebecca, who also

lives in the local community.

“Although it is a safe, purpose-built

school with state-of-the-art facilities,

for me it is more about the innovative

learning and community relationships that

will form as a result.

“Student wellbeing is really important.

Like many people living in the East postquake,

it has been challenging for us as a

family at times. It is reassuring to know

that my kids will be supported and cared

for.”

A future-focused learning environment

that utilises innovation and technology

is a key aspect of the Haeata model, says

rebecca. Ensuring cultural and diverse

needs are met, is another.

“Haeata will be culturally intelligent and

cater for diversity. We know that children

learn in different ways and have different

needs. The campus will be at the heart of

our unique community, bringing together

students and their families.

“It is about really getting to know the

kids and their whānau, creating a true

partnership between home and school.

“I have 100 percent faith that Haeata

is going to be phenomenal. I see the new

school bringing lots of happiness to the

community, which is what it deserves.”

“Student wellbeing is really

important. Like many people

living in the East post-quake, it

The future is bright in the East

By Andy Kai Fong

W

hen I first saw the

advertisement for the role

of Haeata Community

Campus Principal, I thought it

was the most exciting educational

opportunity I had seen for some time.

The chance to create and build a

new school is rare. At the time I was

working as the Head of Secondary

at Hong Kong’s Discovery College

and prior to that I held Principal

and Deputy Principal roles at

Hornby and Lincoln High Schools.

Haeata Community Campus will

open its doors in term one of 2017 for

students from years 1-13. The brand

new school is currently being built on

the Aranui High School site.

The campus will combine pupils

from the four schools that are closing

in eastern Christchurch – Aranui

Primary, Wainoni Primary, Avondale

Primary and Aranui High School –

as well as welcoming new students

from the local community.

It’s really important that we

capture the essence of what has

worked well at the four schools

that are closing and apply it in the

new campus.

Families can be confident that

their children will have access

to quality and innovative education

that provides a strong foundation

for their future.

Having students from years

1-13 allows us to build strong

connections between the school,

students and whānau.

We are fortunate to be in

state-of-the-art facilities which will

provide amazing opportunities for

all students and community groups.

We will be engaging face-to-face

with our community regularly to

discuss our plans, seek feedback and

answer questions you may have.

Along with our leadership team

and Board of Trustees, I look

forward to welcoming our first

students in 2017.

This is an exciting time for

the East – join us!

Transitioning skincare

through the seasons

Skincare expert and facialist Clemency Alice has a passion for beauty and organic

skincare. Recently travelling to Paris and Australia to further her knowledge, she

shares her secrets.

the tRAnSition from summer to

autumn can have a major impact on your

skin’s overall condition and appearance. if

the new season catches you unaware and

unprepared, your skin can become very

dry, extremely sensitive, lacklustre and

more susceptible to breakouts. This is due

to the change in oil flow – which was on

an all-time high during summer – and the

vitality of the ‘skin glow’ waning as cooler

temperatures plummet, constricting

blood vessels. here’s what you need to

know to ensure your skin stays prepped

and primped for the change of season.

PReSeRVe youR liPid BARRieR

if you remove this protective skin barrier

through more aggressive methods of overcleansing

and over-exfoliating, then the

skin cells aren’t prepared and your skin

becomes more vulnerable to the extreme

temperatures and external elements of

wind, sun and rain. A way to protect

and maintain hydration in your skin is

through spritzing your face after cleansing

with a floral facial mist then locking the

moisture in with your favourite facial oil

or moisturiser.

SwitCh moiStuRiSeRS

opt for a creamier, rich texture in

your moisturiser that has antioxidant,

super skin-boosting ingredients. Select

moisturisers that contain hyaluronic acid

(skin plumping and hydrating), vitamin

C (antioxidant and uV-protecting

properties), shea butter (moisturising

and protecting), and rose (softening,

anti-inflammatory, hydrating). And for

those with oilier skins, opt for a balancing

facial oil with lavender (restorative

and calming) and jojoba (balancing to

the acid mantle, protecting and antiinflammatory).

PRoteCt youR Skin

Just because summer is a distant dream,

keep applying a chemical-free SPF daily,

and opt for a seperate sun-care product

with a minimum of SPF30 rather than

relying on sun protection from your

foundation.

inSide And out

Beauty and skin health can come from

within:

• Ensure you drink plenty of water.

• Drink organic green tea (helps

prevent tewl – trans-epidermal water

loss).

• Eat seasonal fruit and vegetables.

• Drink green smoothies.

• Boost your intake of essential

fatty acids.

• Go for a brisk walk amongst

nature to

revive your autumnal ‘glow’.

• Maintain your skin sparkle with

restorative beauty sleep.

Hayfever sufferers receive

much-needed attention

Christchurch’s new allergy

clinic is making headway

in the fight to cure people

of horrible allergy-related

symptoms.

Hayfever, or allergic rhinitis, affects

1 in 5 people in australia and New

Zealand. These sufferers have numerous

symptoms including nasal congestion, eye

irritation, sinus infections and also suffer

from fatigue and poor quality sleep.

These symptoms in children have

been shown to impair learning and

performance and in more frequent

absenteeism and reduced productivity in

adults, and overall cause a considerable

impairment in a person’s quality of life.

The South Island allergy Service, a new

clinic that runs in private rooms in Upper

riccarton has recently opened its doors

to people who have endured - sometimes

many years - of torturous allergic effects.

Dr alisdair Webb, the lead clinician

at the allergy Service, says, “Somewhat

ironically the Garden City has had very

little in the way of allergy support for

patients and health practitioners for

many years but here at SIaS we have

specially trained clinicians who can fill

that gap and offer a friendly, welcoming

environment to diagnose, investigate and

treat allergic symptoms.”

De-SeNSItISatIoN: tHe CloSeSt

tHING to a CUre

The most exciting aspect on offer is

the availability of desensitisation, or

immunotherapy. Dr Webb continues,

“immunotherapy uses tiny amounts of

the responsible allergen to build up the

tolerance of the body so it switches off

the allergic reaction.” Immunotherapy

has been around for hundreds of years in

different forms and has been perfected

over recent years, moving away from

injections to the more convenient forms

available today. after diagnosis this is

now done at home in the majority of

cases with minimal clinic input.

a key first step is to determine what the

responsible allergen is through skin prick

testing. avoidance of allergic triggers is

always the number one priority but in

many cases, either living/employment

situation or even proximity to pets can

make this impossible.

asthma and eczema are two conditions

that are greatly influenced by allergens

present in the air. although allergy

treatments are limited to children over

5 years old this is exactly when these

conditions are becoming more apparent.

“The numbers of sufferers we see is

enormous”, says Dr Webb, “and being

able to accurately and safely test them,

with even a chance to offer long-term

relief through desensitisation can be lifechanging.”

Hayfever alert

The winter period is the time to

commence desensitisation for pollen

allergies as the body takes time to build

up a tolerance. establishing the trigger

for the hayfever now and commencing

desensitisation is essential for a spring

period free from symptoms.

for those allergy-sufferers requiring

regular visits to the doctor, repeated

medications and frequently missing

out on activities and sleep - it would

appear that there is hope in our midst, an

accessible allergy clinic in the garden city.
