Christchurch Boys’

High School’s

newest All Black

Four years ago Anton Lienert-Brown was plying his trade for

Christchurch Boys’ High School. On Saturday he became CBHS’s

46th All Black, and in his first touch against the Wallabies he

flicked a netball-style pass to Israel Dagg for the All Black’s

opening try. He had a top debut in the 29-9 win.

Laptop boost for school

after drop in funding

• By Andrew King

A SCHOOL struggling after a

$40,000 funding cut has been

buoyed by the donation of 28

laptops.

Northcote School had the

money slashed from its budget

after a decile change at the start

of the year.

The school asked for help

from the Rotary Club of Belfast

and Kaiapoi because it needed

more computers for students

but were stunned when 28 were

donated.

Deputy principal Perry Rapson

said that meant a entire class

could use computers at a time.

Presently there were only five

laptops for the senior class.

“It is brilliant to have that

kind of support from the community

and it will make a huge

difference to the pupils,” he said.

“With computer literacy being

essential to the educational

success of young people it is

fantastic that they have brought

these computers for us,” Mr

Rapson said.

He said the school went from

decile two to decile three at the

start of the year, which means it

received $40,000 less funding.

Deciles are a measure of the

socio-economic position of a

school’s student community relative

to other schools throughout

the country.

The Ministry of Education recalculates

deciles for all schools

every five years following the

census of population and dwellings.

President of the Rotary Club

of Belfast and Kaiapoi Graham

Robertson said it was about giving

pupils in their area the same

opportunity as all others in the

city.

“Our club members believe

all kids should have the same

chance at higher education, irrespective

of the suburb in which

they live,” he said.

“Due to the decile rating and

on-going funding being based on

the larger and more prosperous

area, Northcote School misses

out on the funding they need to

give pupils the same educational

tools that other schools in more

affluent areas enjoy.”

As part of this project

students from Canterbury

University are willing to help

with the computer training to

provide support for students and

teacher.

About a quarter of dogs in

the city live in north-western

suburbs, with St Albans leading

the city with most registered dogs

on 1452.

Data released by the city

council showed that St Albans

and Belfast are among the top

three for dog numbers alongside

Spreydon.

Belfast has 975 dogs, followed

closely by Papanui with 946,

Bishopdale with 853 and

Redwood with 773.

The total in the north-west is

7953.

In the city as of August 16,

there were 31,859 dogs, which

includes all those registered in

the city, as well as some that have

been registered previously.

From September 16

voting documents will be

sent out in the mail to elect

In Brief

DETOURS

The intersection of Westminister

St, Roosevelt St and Courtenay St

will be closed while an intersection

upgrade is carried out. Instead use

Cranford St, Innes Rd and Rutland

St to detour around the work site.

Aikmans Rd will be one-way eastbound

for the next three weeks

while wastewater repairs take place.

For west-bound traffic on Aikmans

Rd, the detour will be Akela St, Cox

St, Sterling St and Office Rd.

PEDESTRIAN ISLAND

The Infrastructure, Transport

and Environment Committee

will decide on Thursday if it will

install a pedestrian island on Main

North Rd between Langdons

and Harewood Rds. The island

was requested by Age Concern to

make it easier for people to cross

the road to get to the centre. City

council traffic engineering staff have

recommended not to install it as the

island would impact traffic flow.

LITTER FINES

Dropping rubbish will come with

a bigger penalty from now on. The

city council has set up a new range

of fines for different amounts of

rubbish. People caught dropping

less than one-litre of rubbish, which

includes cigarette buts and cans,

could face a $100 fine. Litter of more

than 120-litres and hazardous waste

will face a higher fine of $400.

MY LOVELY LOLA

I write about my patients

monthly and now I find myself

writing about my precious girl

“LOLA”. My eldest son Connor

left for the USA a few weeks ago

to study and play tennis for UC

Berkeley in San Francisco. Steve

travelled with Connor to help him

organize his first week at college

and while he was away, our

beautiful black lab presented one

morning weak and wobbley in her

hindlegs, unable to walk properly

and support herself. She was

acutely painful which was hard for

me see and knuckling over on her

paws. She was still ravenous though

and was not incontinent. The day

before she had gone running with

Dylan and appeared normal. She has never

obviously shown any sign of neurological

disease before.

I panicked. Lola is my dog and we are so closely

intertwined. We read each others minds and

we are together 24/7. We are best friends.

When she gets sick ( especially when she had

kidney cancer last year), Steve takes over as

her vet, I’m just her mum. I feel useless making

veterinary decisions for her but with Steve

away, I had to step up, for her sake.

I’m very

fortunate with

the incredible

nurses and vets

we have working

with us. Lola is

very loved and

the team swung

into action. As

soon as I entered

the practice,

everyone

could see the

predicament

Lola was in.

She was placed on a fentanyl CRI for pain,

her entire spine was radiographed and she

had many tubes of blood taken to test for

toxoplasmosis, infectious disease and check her

organ function. A special bed was organized

for her in the treatment area as strict rest was

crucial. Catherine made a special trip in on her

day off to assess Lola neurologically. Suzanne

performed acupuncture and laser treatment.

She accepts everything we do to her. She fully

understands our job and that we are only

trying to help. She is the perfect patient.

Once all the test results were in, taking

into account the neurological exam and

radiographs taken, we came to the conclusion

that she had either prolapsed a disc between

T3-L3 or had a FCE ( fibrocartilaginous

embolism). FCE causes

ischaemic myelopathy which

is poor blood supply to the

spinal cord. Like any part

of the body, the spinal cord

relies on a permanent supply

of blood to bring nutrients

and remove waste products.

Arteries supply segments of

the cord on each side. FCE

occurs acutely, often with

no pain. Often one limb is

more affected. Usually these

patients make a full recovery

with the help of strict rest and

anti-inflammatory medication.

Other possible causes included

a fracture or dislocation of

human radiologists.

the spinal vertebrae,

discospondylitis or

inflammatory diseases

like toxoplasmosis.

Due to her recent bout

of cancer, resulting in the

loss of a kidney, I was a

little worried the cancer

may have spread to

her spinal cord. I have

organized an MRI at St

George’s hospital, so

we know what we are

dealing with. I go with

her to sedate her and

monitor her. The MRI

takes about 30 minutes

and is interpreted by

I also have friends in “high places”, and I

consulted with a specialist surgeon in Auckland

who I’ve trusted with all my pets in the past.

Depending on the results from her MRI she

may need spinal surgery if she doesn’t make a

full recovery. Im really hoping this isn’t the case

but if so then she will fly to Auckland ands be

surgically assessed.

The biggest problem I have has been trying

to confine her and stop her tail continually

wagging and her whole back end

wiggling. She’s on a concoction of

medications I give her 3 times daily

covering all my bases and then she’s

assisted when going to the toilet. Bed rest

is the number 1 priority. She is sleeping

with me, coming to work to rest and I am

slowly walking her on a lead to toilet. She

can’t understand why I am being so clingy

and why I’m popping so many pills into

her. She is on double antibiotic therapy,

tramadol for pain and two different antiinflammatories.

I’m praying this sorts itself

out with time, patience, rest and love!! She

certainly got it right choosing a vet as her

mum……she’s slightly high maintenance

medically!! But I wouldn’t have her any other

way.

As of writing this she is definitely on the

improve trying to leap into my car. She is

walking way better, but still a little ataxic and

weak in her hindlegs. She has no pain and

seems happy. Thanks to everyone on Facebook

who has sent special wishes Lola’s way. We

so appreciate this and they have helped!

She is such a special, loved team member of

McMaster & Heap Vets.

CHRISTCHURCH GIRLS

High School students,

Emily Perkins and Bridget

James, are sharpening

their knives to cut through

the competition in the

National Secondary

Schools Culinary

Challenge.

As winners of the

Christchurch regional title,

the girls are in Auckland to

compete in the grand final

held today.

The pair underwent a

live kitchen cook-off to

produce four portions of

entrée and main meals in

just 90min to gain their

place at the final.

The dishes had to include

New Zealand produced

vegetables and chicken,

with silverbeet being the

hero vegetable for the

entree.

If they can impress the

judges and secure the

top place the girls will be

heading to Sydney for an

incredible culinary experience.

Girls’ High hospitality

teacher Holly Caird said

the year 13 students were

practising at every chance

they got and she was confident

they were on track for

today.

“Emily and Bridget took

on board the judges’ comments

during the regional

event and have made some

changes to their dishes,”

she said.

“As this has been the

first time the students and

the school has entered, the

whole experience has been

a massive learning curve

for the girls and for me but

we’re all looking forward to

getting to the final so the

girls can show the judges

what they’ve got.”

All Blacks new No 12

Ten things you need to

know about new All Black

Anton Lienert-Brown who

started in the number 12

jersey on Saturday.

1) Lienert-Brown nominates

the man he has replaced, Sonny

Bill Williams, as his favourite

player – “great athlete and

person”. His favourite sports

person is basketball legend

Michael Jordan.

2) He was only added to the

squad early this month because

SBW suffered a season-ending

injury playing for the sevens in

Rio.

3) Versatility has helped his

rise – he made his Chiefs debut

in 2014 on the wing, aged 18,

against the Bulls in Pretoria.

All Black coach Steve Hansen

said: “The reason why we have

gone for Anton is that he can

cover inside and outside centre.

He gives us better options than

anyone else.”

4) Lienert-Brown’s midfield

preferences have changed. “At

the start of the year it would

have been 12 but . . . I think with

the skill set I have, I probably

prefer it more at 13,” he said after

the Super Rugby season.

5) His older brother, Daniel,

is a skilful prop with the Highlanders,

and is seen by some as a

potential All Black.

6) Lienert-Brown is Christchurch

Boys’ High’s 46th All Black

– old boys include his current

team mates Owen Franks and

Brodie Retallick. The most

recent All Black coaches – Graham

Henry and Steve Hansen –

also attended the school.

7) Lienert-Brown said he

played Super Rugby before he

played senior club rugby. His

speedy rise to the test team is

even more remarkable when you

consider he missed the 2013 season

after dislocating his shoulder

in a schools match the previous

year.

8) He is the first player from

last year’s world title winning

under-20 team to make the

step up to the All Blacks. Akira

Ioane may well be the next.

Lienert-Brown captained the

under-20s in a 2014 World Cup

match against Samoa at North

Harbour.

9) He’s old school when it

comes to music, listing UB40 as

his favourite band.

10) Lienert-Brown has

already worn an All Black jersey

in a practice match against

Counties-Manukau at Pukekohe

two weeks ago.

He said it was a “dream come

true”.

Historic find stops

work in cul-de-sac

QUALITY 19TH century

ceramics and glassware have

been discovered more than 1.5m

underground in Richmond.

The discovery was made

while trenching took place this

month in Sorensens Pl to build a

manhole.

Deep inside a circular 19th

century brick-lined well, the crew

found ceramics and glass bottles,

ash, charcoal and the bones of

animals.

One of the clay smoking pipes

found has “T Milo” stamped

on the stem, which refers to

Theophilus Milo, a tobacconist

and pipe-maker in London

GREAT FIND:

A 19th century

clay smoking

pipe has

been found

with “T Milo”

around the 1860s and 1870s.

Since then, two other rubbish

pits have been discovered in the

cul-de-sac, with similar material

to the first find in the well.

SCIRT work stopped

immediately to notify

archaeological specialists about

the discovery of the brick well

and its contents.

Underground Overground

archaeologist Jessie Garland said,

as well as a selection of alcohol;

food; and pharmaceutical bottles,

there were stemmed drinking

glasses, which have not often

been found in 19th century

Readers respond to an

opinion piece by John Verd

about fluoridated water

Bruce Tulloch, of

Harewood – As with climate

change, we have had a plethora

of attacks on the scientific

consensus from people without

personal expertise regurgitating

second-hand assertions and

unverified theories.

In such cases it is essential

to consider that when peerreviewed

scientific information

is accepted by the vast majority

of those qualified to judge it, it is

exceedingly likely that this will

be correct.

Sensible decisions on health,

political or other issues require

informed debate. Emotive

arguments and misinformation,

from whatever motivation, make

it much harder to reach sensible

agreement and effective action in

the common good.

The news media have a

great responsibility in their

presentation of information. It

is probably impractical to print

a suitable response from the

relevant authorities each time

the papers publish an opinion

against fluoridation but if you

want to promote real public

understanding rather than

just stir controversy I would

suggest adding a clear note after

such items pointing out that

information is available on the

website www.fluoridefacts.govt.

nz/ and that this is supported

by the Ministry of Health, NZ

Dental Association, NZ Medical

Association, the Public Health

Association and New Zealand

nurses among others.

This would enable readers to

check detailed information and

then judge the credibility of

those involved.

I am sorry your correspondent,

having come to New Zealand, is

kept up at night worrying about

being fluoridated, but I would

suggest to him that in this

country our medical authorities

are not only highly responsible

but also highly competent.

They are unlikely to be

colluding to poison him or

reduce his IQ. I hope he may

now be able to relax.

Richard Lowen, of St

Albans – With the present

development in alternative

motive power there seems little

point in the extension of BP

Edgeware service station. Look

up noble gas engines. I do not

agree with the fluoridation of our

water supply. It is unnecessary

and dangerous.

Gavin Stuart, of Hoon

Hay – Sodium Fluoride has H4

poison in red letter on the bags.

I do not know what the cost

is for this waste product, but

it would be cheaper, safer and

more effective to supply calcium

fluoride tablets to all families

with young children to help with

the problem of tooth decay.

If they are concerned, calcium

fluoride can be found in most

aquifers in New Zealand.

With good oral hygiene and a

good balanced diet, healthy teeth

should be the norm for most

children.

Alan Upritchard – A

Google search for “cities with

naturally fluoridated water”,

which I have just done, came up

with 1.92 million results.

I’m sure very few of the

references deal with the

question as asked, but after a

few minutes reading, the good

old standard Wikipedia quickly

tells us that the UK and 28 other

countries have areas of naturally

fluoridated water.

Some, like New Zealand, have

negligible levels, others have well

in excess of the World Health

Organisation recommended

dose.

The rest of the paper deals with

supply of artificially fluoridated

water in various counties, mostly

introduced in the 1960s-80s era.

While I’m happy to welcome

John Verd to Christchurch, and

am equally happy to read his

opinions, as a retired scientist I

would like to see the Nor’West

News take a balanced rather

than a biased position. Both you

and John can easily travel to the

areas highlighted in the above

table and check if medical or

morbidity statistics reflect, in

real life, the effects predicted by

the anti-fluoride lobby.

As an aside, you could also

check their youth dental decay

statistics. There are 27 other

countries in these statistics

which can also potentially be

accessed.

With regard to

hydroflourocylicic acid, it’s the

dose that makes the poison.

Arsenic and water are both

essential to human life. It is only

when ingested in excess that

they become toxic. Chlorine

is also extremely toxic at high

rates, but as the recent events in

the Hastings area have shown,

is fundamental to delivering

potable water.

You owe it to yourself, as

well as your readers, to give

the widest possible range

of information from which

opinions can be formed.

And no, I don’t wake up at

night worrying about fluoride in

the water. It pales into absolute

insignificance compared to the

human tragedy of Middle East

today.

Frame OF mind

For this exhibition, I am exploring

issues of societal bias through a

personal lens.

The effect of proselytized overly

fixed viewpoints on political,

religious, racial, gender and

environmental issues is alarming.

When this alarm is combined with

the information bias that occurs in

this curated information age, our

dual desires to belong and control

are kicked into overdrive.

I am not immune to this, but

am also shocked at the lack of

empathy or comprehension of

‘other’ that some people exhibit.

This body of work is my way of

trying to understand.

Though many (including

myself) try to be independent,

compassionate, open-minded

and critical in our thinking, we

cannot avoid being influenced.

Not only by our own experience

and state of mind, but also by

broader cultural, societal, and

scientific relevancies. And this is

always changing.

Art a fantastic way of exploring

issues because it combines both

intellectual and intuitive practices.

The frame is overt, pedantic. As

in a museum display, it provides

a curated context, which is only

ever part of the story.The content

captures personal situations and

impressions – things I have felt,

seen and imagined.

Whilst painting, I have been

deliberately mindful of my thought

process. I asked myself; What is

the true impetus for this work?

What narrative is cycling/growing

in my mind?

How is this effecting my choices?

At what point/s does my ‘frame

of mind’ become ‘confirmation

bias’? To what degree is bias

necessary? When does it become

a liability?

I didn’t discover any big answers,

just personal ones – but every bit

helps.

Some clues are reflected in the

work titles, much more in the

works themselves as physical

Nostalgia

Release

manifestations of my frame of

mind.

Most importantly, I am inviting

the viewer to reflect upon their

own frame of mind or state of bias

whilst investigating mine.

SELWYN HOUSE School pupils took

home top honours at the Cantamaths

competition at Horncastle Arena,

winning the supreme class award for

the book boxes they made for their

school library.

The year 7 pupils designed and

made seven timber book boxes, based

on a tangram, that could be moved

around the floor to create geometric

shapes and pictures.

The project was the result of an

identified need to make their library

more interactive and dynamic.

Pupils have focussed on authentic

learning tasks this year; tasks that are

based on real-world problems and

designed to provide rich learning

experiences.

The dynamic and original nature of

the entry impressed the judges, who

told the girls that they also liked the

story behind their project.

Tangram-shaped biscuits were

baked, using a biscuit cutter made

from the school’s 3D printer, and sold

at lunchtime to raise money for the

project.

The class teachers said they have

noted a marked increase in pupil

engagement and a more positive

attitude towards maths as a result of

Rangi Ruru; Boys’ High

win basketball champs

• By Gordon Findlater

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

won the Whelan Trophy after

defeating Christchurch Girls’

High School in the secondary

schools’ basketball final.

Christchurch GHS did well to

fight back in the final stages of

the game. However, it was a case

of too little, too late.

Rangi hung on to win 74-62.

They met at Cowles Stadium,

last week, with Rangi dominating

play in the first quarter,

jumping out to a lead of more

than 20 points.

Junior Tall Fern and Rangi

player Esra McGoldrick starred

with 43 points in the win, helping

her team advance to the final

in dominant fashion.

In the Thompson Trophy

final, Christchurch Boys’ High

School took on Burnside High

School.

Burnside had defeated

Christchurch BHS in their past

two meetings. However, the loss

of stars Toby Gillooly and Isaiah

Morris was too much for them

to overcome.

Christchurch BHS took an

early commanding lead and

never looked back. They eventually

won the game in a blow-out

95-62.

Quinn Clinton from Christchurch

BHS was awarded the

Thompson Trophy finals

MVP (most valuable player)

award.

Esra McGoldrick from Rangi

won the Whelan Trophy MVP

award.

Your local shopping centre

51 years on - still going strong!

Bishopdale Shopping Centre, which officially opened

in 1966, has recently celebrated its 51st birthday.

The shopping precinct was originally developed

by what was then the Ministry of Works, and it is

based on a similar concept that had been developed

slightly earlier in Porirua.

The “pioneers” of the Bishopdale shopping

community included the Bishopdale Pharmacy

(originally the Chemist) and the shops on side,

Bishopdale Butchery and a Books and Toy shop.

Woolworths opened shortly after on the site where

the New World Supermarket stands today. This was

followed by the Post Office, which to this day has an

official opening date plaque displayed.

As geographical area became populated and the

paddocks surrounding the initial ‘street of shops’

were developed over the years, other businesses

joined, including Millers, Canterbury Savings Bank,

Russell’s Footwear, Mrs Popes, Hobby’s Menswear,

Minsons, Para Rubber, New World, Self Help

Grocers, Regent Furnishers, Naismith’s TV and

Electrical, Eric Wilson Jeweller, Westpac, McGregor’s

but a few. In the 1960s, a Farmers Department Store

established itself at the shopping mall, but when it

was closed, Dress for Less started to occupy the site,

until Mitre 10 moved into the building.

The Original Bishopdale Tavern occupied the site

where the YMCA is today, and there were many

community meetings held there. The area where the

tavern is now was developed privately and expanded

the establishment of Parkside Plaza.

Early attractions that featured at the shopping

centre include bonfire and fireworks displays for

Guy Fawkes, Father Christmas Parades, Mannequin

Parades and cooking displays to name a few.

Locals today are greeted with a variety of retail

businesses from owner operator through to ‘big

interaction, as reflected in the unique feature of

businesses and community services alongside

one another.

Owning a husky requires dedication

THIS WINTER, at least one

husky a week is arriving at the

West Melton branch of Husky

Rescue NZ, the company

re-homing abandoned or

unwanted huskies.

This season is shaping up to

be the worst in the company’s

seven-year history.

Although many of the

unwanted dogs come from

Auckland, Husky Rescue NZ has

experienced an influx of huskies

from Christchurch.

“We do always have dogs from

Christchurch … it’s pretty much

one dog a week from Canterbury,”

Husky Rescue NZ founder

Michelle Attwood said.

“It’s the worst winter we’ve

ever had.”

The siberian husky is known to

be a hands-on breed.

Ms Attwood said a minimum

exercise routine of 5km a day is

needed to keep them healthy.

“In summer, that means [running

or walking] very late at

night, or early in the morning,

to avoid those 20 deg C temperatures.”

Huskies also require seasonally

intense fur maintenance, a

lot of entertainment and a firm

understanding of who sets the

rules, she said.

“If the owner fails to establish

their position as leader, the

husky, with its strong pack

mentality, will become the pack

leader instead and be almost

impossible to control,” Ms Attwood

said.

Many people will purchase a

husky before understanding the

dog’s needs and then give up

when the job becomes too hard,

she said.

“[Owners] say: ‘Oh well, it

jumped a six-foot fence, it ate

the neighbour’s cat and it won’t

come back when it’s called’ …

those are all just standard husky

traits.”

Ms Attwood reported reoccurring

problems from irresponsible

breeders.

“We’ve had over 12 dogs from

CHILLING. Christos Merentitis and his husky Max enjoying some

down time.

just one backyard breeder …

time and time again we are seeing

the same problem dogs from

the same problem breeders,” she

said.

The rescue centre caters to

huskies through a combination

of pack-like living arrangements

and dry-land scootering and

sledding.

“They do really well at the

sport and they love it, getting

them to stop running is the

hardest part,” Ms Attwood said.

Husky owner Christos Merentitis

adopted his pet Max about

three years ago.

Strict training and constant

exercise is what helped Max

become a beloved member of the

family.

“I got Max when he was

10-months-old. A lot of trainers

said that was too late to correct

bad habits, but you’ve just got

to keep on top of it and actually

want to see a change in your dog

. . . take them for a huge run, and

then do 10 minutes of training

– when they are too tired to be

cheeky or disagree with you,” he

said.

ADULT LEARNERS’ WEEK

HE TANGATA MĀTAURANGA

Ara community study -

where adult learners are welcome

At Ara Institute of Canterbury’s six community

hubs, people can learn at their own pace in a

friendly, welcoming environment that supports

people who are returning to study after a long

break or those who are undertaking study for the

first time.

At hubs in New Brighton, Bishopdale, Hornby,

Rangiora, Christchurch’s Madras Street and now

also in Timaru, Ara staff support community

learning needs through a range of programmes.

Computing for Free is a popular choice for adult

learners looking for accessible training for basic

computer skills or to upskill to improve their career

opportunities.

Computing for Free offers a range of self-paced,

short courses of between 20 to 40 hours to introduce

people to a wide range of specific programmes as

Web Design and Powerpoint.

The facilitators who are on-hand to provide

support are passionate about the courses they teach

and the communities they teach in, providing

an excellent experience for students. Timetables

NOR’WEST NEWS

are flexible to fit around family and professional

commitments.

Having completed Computing for Free herself,

tutor Jo Harkerss understands the challenges of

returning to study.

“For many people it is a huge stepping stone.

They may have been made redundant or been out

of the workforce after having children and here

they can connect with other people and learn new

skills that will make them more employable and

give them confidence to try other things too.

“They might have used computers in the past,

but programmes change and skills need to be

updated,” Jo says.

“The hardest thing is for people to walk in

the door. Then they realise that we are really

nice! And that they can do it. You see people

come in who feel afraid of computers, but we

are here to help them to achieve. Study is not

easy for everyone, but our programmes have

a good balance of theory and practice, plus

the programmes are self-paced to fit around

other life commitments such as work and

family.”

Computing for Free also caters for adult

learners who want to upskill for career

progression, with programmes such as the

National Certificate in Computing, which is a

formal qualification that employers recognise

and value. For students who find a passion for

computing there are further programmes on offer

at Ara from certificates to degrees.

Enrolling is easy – just pop into your local

branch to discuss your needs with one of our

friendly facilitators or visit http://www.ara.

ADULT LEARNERS’ WEEK 2016 HE TANGATA MĀTAURANGA

Learning Nation focus for

Adult Learners’ Week 2016

Adult educators will be on the streets during Adult

Learners’ Week/He Tangata Mātauranga, September 5-11,

asking people what they would like to learn and recording

their responses. The campaign called ‘Learning Nation’ will

be a focus for this year’s celebration. It acknowledges that

lifelong learning is vital for a rich, rewarding life and

worthy of a conversation.

Adult Learners’ Week/He Tangata Mātauranga,

celebrates all adult learning whether it’s upskilling for a

better job, preparing for further study, improving life skills

or having fun. It is supported by the New Zealand National

Commission for UNESCO and incorporates International

Literacy Day on September 8.

Every year thousands of ACE providers, educators,

learners and supporters organise a huge range of events to

highlight the value of adult learning.

The Government priorities for Adult and Community

Education (ACE) include literacy, numeracy, English

language (ESOL), te Reo Māori and sign language.

Providers all over New Zealand offer learning in these core

areas and many others. Courses not eligible for funding

are often run by volunteers.

In Christchurch many of the organisations providing

ACE opportunities will be celebrating with their learners

Connecting Adult and Community Education

and Learning across Otautahi

and in their own communities, more information can be

found on the ACE forum website https://aceforumchch.

wordpress.com/

On Wednesday 7th September in collaboration with Ako

Aotearoa, PEETO – The Muliti-Cultural learning Centre

and Risngholme there will be the Annual Adult learners

awards 2016. This will take place at Riccarton Community

Church, 80 Rattray St from 7pm.

On Friday 9th September there will be the Annual Adult

Learners’ week breakfast where we will be discussing

further the role of Christchurch as a learning city.

It will be a week of celebration and consideration of the

importance of learning to our communities and our city

and our nation.

In Christchurch Adult Learners’ Week/He Tangata Mātauranga

2016 celebrations are organized by the ACE forum Christchurch.

Celebrating 54 years

on the local music scene

NEVILLE Wilkins & the Viscounts celebrate

54 years on the music scene this weekend

making them one of New Zealand’s longest

established dance bands.

Christchurch trumpeter, Neville Wilkins

formed the band in 1962 and during its career

The Viscounts has had around 60 members,

with some staying as long as 20 years.

Their first residencies included

Christchurch’s 500 Club in Chancery Lane and

The Town & About in Peterborough St,

followed later by the Bush Inn Courts and

Twiggers.

With a career spanning well over five

decades, the group has adapted its repertoire

with time and today play a wide selection of

material.

“I always aimed for the band to play the

most popular artists, such as Ricky Nelson,

Billy Vaughan, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Gene

The

Woolston Club...

A classic, contemporary

club experience

Cafe open from 11am

TAB & Gaming, Function Facilities,

HOUSIE Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

SHUTTLE Tuesday - Saturday

Pitney, Eddie Calvert, Neil Diamond, Dire

Straits, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Englebert

Humperdink, and Elvis Presley,” said Neville.

“So we play a good mixture of 50's, 60's, 70's

ballads, rock and roll, country and even Irish.”

Today the Viscounts still perform at private

functions and the occasional public show,

however in the past they have shared the stage

with some wonderful performers including

Eddie Low, Yolande Gibson, Maria Dallas,

Frank Rowles, Bunny Walters, Toni Williams,

Tommy Adderley, Dean Waretini, and

Jonanthan J, to name a few.

Neville Wilkins & the Viscounts appear at

the Woolston Club, Hargood St, this Saturday

(3rd September). Don’t miss your opportunity

to ‘cut a rug’ with this highly respected and

experienced show band. Entry $5. Band starts

at 7.30pm.
