The St Margaret’s College coxed four of Ella Wells, Olivia Hughes, Olivia Hutton, Alice

Elworthy and Lucy Davidson took out the under-19 title at the Canterbury Rowing

Championships over the weekend. The regatta was called off early due to high winds at Lake

Ruataniwha. However, St Margaret’s still managed to capture two gold medals.

SCHOOLS IN the north-west

face a possible two to five-year

wait before they will get traffic

speed limits reduced.

The city council has only

$120,000 a year to spend implementing

school zones on

roads by schools.

The cost covers up to

four zones across the city

a year.

That means many

schools will face long

waits – including Paparoa

Street, Casebrook

Intermediate, Breens Intermediate,

St Joseph’s, Cotswold and

Mairehau Primary.

A school zone is an area

around a school where the speed

is reduced to 40km/h during

times when pupils are arriving

and leaving, any other time the

usual speed limit applies.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said funding needs to increase

to give the boards the ability to

install more.

“We need to look at this now

as we know there will be

an increase of traffic and

denser housing . . . we

have always talked about

being a nibble council

so this is something that

needs to be addressed,”

Ms Jones (left) said.

The board has

requested, as part of its

submission on the city council’s

annual plan, that funding be

increased to allow it to install

more school zones or extend

existing ones.

NOR’WEST NEWS

News........................................3-7

THE CITY council needs to

urgently boost the amount of

money it has to implement

40km/h zones outside schools.

We reveal today the city council

has a paltry $120,000 a year

to put in school zones – and at

about $30k a pop that means only

four schools across the city a year

will get them.

Not good enough.

If the council spent the same

amount of money on school

speed zones as it did on the

Gormley sculptures there would

be no waiting list.

Pretty simple really.

But on a positive note, well

done St Margaret’s College for a

great rowing effort at the weekend.

page says it all.

Edgeware Pool group optimistic

• By Andrew King

IT’S BEEN a decade since the

Edgeware Pool was demolished

and now there is light at the end

of the rebuild tunnel.

A resource consent hearing

has been set for February 2, and

it will determine if the rebuild of

the pool can go ahead.

It was demolished

due to deterioration

in November 2006,

and since then the

community has

been trying to get it

replaced.

The closure

and decision sparked protest

marches, public meetings and

bitter clashes with councillors

and former mayor Garry Moore

(above).

St Albans Pavilion & Pool Inc

spokesman Paul Somerville said

fundraising and building will be

the easy part once the resource

consent has been granted.

“It has been a long and drawn

out process, but we understand

due to the earthquakes things

move slowly. I’m just happy we

are getting closer to being able to

fundraise,” he said.

It has been about three years

since the consent to rebuild

the pool was lodged, with Mr

Somerville saying there were

HOPEFUL: Paul Somerville said rebuilding the pool will be easy once the consent is granted. A

concept design of what the pool could look like has been released (inset).

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

quite a few requests for more

information before the hearing

was set.

“There was a lot of back and

forward with the council wanting

more information,” he said.

If the consent to build is granted,

the city council will transfer

the ownership of the land into a

community trust, setup by the

St Albans Pavilion & Pool Inc,

for $1.

Mr Somerville said he estimated

they will need about $3-$4

million to build the pool.

“This will be a great community

asset . . . with the new

cycleway going right past the

entrance to the pool, the new St

Albans Community Centre and

the upgrade of the St Albans

shopping centre it, will be a

vibrant place,” he said.

The city council has given the

trust 10 years to build the pool

otherwise the land will revert

back to the city council. Mr

Somerville was confident they

will be finished within five years.

“There will be a 25m outdoor

pool and a smaller covered

learners’ pool for a start,” Mr

Somerville said.

In Brief

DISHWASHER FIRE

It was lucky a dishwasher which

caught fire in Belfast on January 9

didn’t cause a major blaze, according

to firefighters. The St Albans

crew were called to a Lagan St

property at about 10.45pm and

found a dishwasher on fire in the

kitchen. They managed to remove

it from the house and extinguish

the fire. A spokesman said if they

hadn’t removed the dishwasher, it

could have started a much larger

fire. No-one was injured.

ROAD REPAIRED AGAIN

Road repairs on North Pde,

between number 136 and Averill

St, which were initially carried out

in 2015, will have to be done again.

Previous work to strengthen the

earthquake-damaged road surface

did not withstand the traffic flow

along North Pde. As a result,

SCIRT will repair the road over the

next three weeks.

CLARIFICATION

Last week, Nor’West News stated

that a building used as the St Albans

Transitional Community

Centre will be relocated to Mac-

Farlane Park after a new facility

is built. This was incorrect. The

Papanui-Innes Community Board

is waiting on confirmation from

city council staff that they can relocate

the building onto this land.

The Nor’West News apologises for

the error.

Geoff Harrow

Love of nature and adventure

HONOURED: Geoff Harrow received a Maori cloak when he retired

from the Shearwater Trust.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

From climbing with Sir Edmund Hillary to walking on his own

to the South Pole, Geoff Harrow spoke to Caitlin Miles about his

achievements and receiving a Queen’s Service Medal

Firstly Geoff,

congratulations on receiving

your medal.

I was quite astonished, it was

quite a surprise.

Really? Did you know that

you had been nominated for

it?

I was told someone had

nominated me at the end of

October. I’m not sure who it is

but I was a little embarrassed

because, while I had worked

hard for mountaineering and

conservation and skiing, so

have a hell of a lot of other

people. There should be a couple

of thousand other people

that I know of that should

deserve it just as much or more

than me.

How did you get started in

conservation work?

Well, I was always a bit of a

wanderer. We lived in Upper

Riccarton near the airport

and we would go up around

the countryside setting rabbit

snares and collecting, dear

I say it, terrible things like

collecting bird eggs! I even

collected bird eggs from the

main runway at Christchurch

Airport. I’ve always been

interested in birds. I started off

making a birds’ egg collection,

which is a terrible no-no these

days, but a lot of kids did when

I was at Riccarton School. I’ve

always looked at the Port Hills

and tried to get my brothers

and sisters to take me there

and they rarely would but, as

I got older, I went with school

friends and I could see the

mountains way out to the west.

We had a school trip to the

West Coast and we came right

through Arthur’s Pass and I

saw snow up on the mountains

and glaciers and thought, oh,

isn’t that amazing and that I’d

love to get up in that country,

but I was a bit small to do that

at that stage. So I had an interest

from a very early age, but

I’ve been a member of Forest

& Bird since 1938, and I’m 90

now so 79 years.

You’ve also been interested

in the mountains for a long

time?

I climbed Mt Oxford when

I was about 12 and when

I got to high school, I met

up with other like-minded

kids interested in tramping

and one of them, his father,

was a member of the

mountaineering club and we

went up to the Waimakariri

in the third form (year 9) and

we were right up there and it

was quite something. We saw

these back country huts so

they were places to stay and

the people that owned the huts

said you kids should belong

to the club because you’re

using our facilities and very

shortly after that I joined the

mountaineering club, in 1945 I

think it was.

Did you work in the

conservation sector?

No. This was purely just a

hobby. I worked for medical

supplies’ companies. The

whole of my life was spent

in the marketing of research

medicines to doctors and

chemists. I’ve been retired for

32 years now.

NOR’WEST NEWS Tuesday January 17 2017 5

leads to New Year’s honour

You were a foundation member

of the Craigieburn Valley

Ski Club as well?

I suggested to the mountaineering

club that there were quite

a group of young members who

had their own set up and I was

working in some of the sheep

stations in the high country,

Flockhill in particular and Mt

White. In the Craigieburn Valley,

they asked if I could show

them how I get through that

valley. I was a director for the Mt

Hutt ski field for about 12 years

and involved in the development

right from the beginning.

I was very lucky to get a trip to

the Himalayas with Ed Hillary

in 1954 with the New Zealand

Alpine Club.

That’s incredible, how did you

manage to do that?

They were calling for applications

and I put my name forward

and got on the team.

What was that experience

like?

It was a very big challenge.

We were in the Barun Valley

mapping our climb and having a

look at Makalu, the fifth highest

mountain in the world. We got

pretty high up that and then Ed

Hillary collapsed, he was very

sick and also had broken ribs

SO CLOSE: A view of Mt Makalu, which is located in the Mahalangur Himalayas, 19 km

south-east of Mt Everest. Geoff Harrow nearly conquered the mountain on a climbing

expedition with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1954.

because he helped one of our

team out of a crevasse. He collapsed

at about 22,000ft (6705m)

and we had to stop and get him

off the mountain. So that was

the end of climbing Makalu. But

the highest peak we climbed was

Baruntse, which is about 23,000ft

(7010m).

Have you ever gone back and

tried to climb Makalu again?

I went back with my wife on a

tramping trip. I didn’t get a second

chance to climb those, but

I went down to the Antarctic on

a biological expedition for four

months in 1965 or 1966, and we

were studying penguins and I got

a trip to the South Pole. There

were a lot of planes going down

there and I got asked if I’d like to

go. I was lucky to get on that trip.

The planes were C130 Hercules

and they pulled up just by the

pole station and the navigator

that was on the trip said this

wasn’t quite the South Pole. It

was about 1km away, so I walked

to the South Pole alone.

You must have had quite a

few ‘pinch yourself moments.’

What was it like rediscovering

hutton’s shearwater birds?

My wife and I were on holiday

up in Kaikoura staying with Ivan

Hislop. He found out that we

were interested in seeing all the

water birds and suggested some

things that we could do. I asked

if there were any mutton birds or

hutton’s shearwater colonies on

the Kaikoura coast and he said

not on the coast but up in the

mountains there were. I was astonished,

there was little known

about hutton’s shearwaters so I

went and had a look. That was

about 50 years ago and I have

been working with them ever

since.

You’ve mentioned your wife a

bit, how did you meet?

We met at Craigieburn Valley

Ski Club. I told her I was one of

the founders of the club and she

came up and we met and we’re

still together almost 60 years

later. We both still ski, we skied

last winter at Mt Hutt and Coronet

Peak. She’s joined me and

encouraged me with the work

and things I’ve done.

Do you have children that are

interested in the outdoors too?

My son Paul does a lot of skiing

and a lot of hunting. But he

came with me on one trip and

just as we were going over a very

steep waterfall, a huge rockfall

came through – several hundred

tonne – rocks as big as pianos

came smashing through us.

There were five in our party, including

two 12-year-olds, one of

them being Paul. Not one of us

got a mark on us. I was terrified

and wanted to turn round. My

brother-in-law was with us and

he was a pretty cool customer.

He said ‘look Geoff, it’s all over

and you’ve got some pretty important

work to do while you’re

here.’ It was a near miss but we

did carry on.

Alternative access

planned for vehicle

storage yard

• By Andrew King

A PROPOSED vehicle storage

yard for Harewood has prompted

fears from the community around

road safety.

The Car Distribution Group

wants to build an 8.5ha storage

yard at 711 Johns Rd to store between

2500 to 5000 vehicles.

But the owner of St James Bed

and Breakfast, Margaret Frankish,

said to bring the number of trucks

needed to transport the vehicles

into an already congested road

near Harewood Primary School

and Harewood Playcentre was

“madness.”

“I have a real fear that someone

is going to be killed,” she said.

The development would mean

between 40 to 50 trucks per day

would be coming and going from

the site – most of which will have

to drive on to Harewood Rd past

a school and kindergarten before

entering the site on Waimakariri

Rd.

O’Callaghan Design director

of engineering Ray O’Callaghan

conducted the consultation for the

project and said it was all about

finding the best fit for the community

and the business.

The preferred option, he said,

was for the trucks to turn right

from Sawyers Arms Rd onto

Waimakariri Rd, but because of a

traffic island, it would have to be

modified.

“We want this option, the community

wants this option. It’s a

win-win for everybody,” he said.

A resource consent for the site

will be applied for this week, with

the preferred option of the trucks

coming onto Sawyers Arms Rd

then onto Waimakariri Rd.

It was supposed to be applied for

in July. However, Mr O’Callaghan

said to get it right meant speaking

with the New Zealand Transport

Agency to try and get the preferred

Sawyers Arms Rd option,

which has taken more time.

“I am hopeful they will allow

us to modify the traffic island and

existing roundabout to make our

preferred option work,” he said.

Mrs Frankish said the preferred

Sawyers Arms Rd option would be

a lot better.

“It would be much better suited

and safer for everybody,” she said.

MORE THAN 140 students

from the city and beyond

took part in the southern

hemisphere’s largest pipe and

drumming summer school.

The Royal New Zealand

Pipe Band Association

Schools wait for lower speed zones

Summer School was held last

week at St Andrew’s College,

bringing some of the best

tutors in the trade to the

school.

Canadian bagpiper Jack

Lee, Scottish pipe-band

drummer and leading drummer

of the Simon Fraser University

Pipe Band John Reid

Maxwell were some of the

tutors from around the world

who travelled to the city for

the event.

•From page 1

Based on the city council

being able to install about three

zones per year, Paparoa would

be done in 2018, Casebrook

and Breens in 2019, St Joseph’s

in 2020, Cotswold in 2021 and

Mairehau’s zone extended onto

Mahars Rd in 2022.

City council manager operations

transport Steffan Thomas

said schools are prioritised

based a number of factors relating

to the road environment

outside a school.

“The list is reviewed regularly

and the ranking of an individual

school can change due to

the school, and the surrounding

environment, changing,”

he said.

Currently the Haeata Community

Campus, Marshland

School, Somerfield School,

Yaldhurst Model School and

Ouruhia School are all earmarked

to have school zones

installed this year.

Road policing manager Inspector

Al Stewart said schools

zones are a great way to remind

motorists they are around other

vulnerable road users, mainly

children.

History of famous property developing

The Mauger family has owned and

developed properties in the eastern

suburbs for more than 60 years. Warner

and Patsy Mauger bought 60 acres of

land in 1990 and developed it into what

is now called Northshore. And now,

the Mauger family’s history has been

documented in a book.

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

THE FAMILY responsible for

many property developments

in North New Brighton and

Northshore can now sit down to

read their own story.

The Mauger family has owned

property in the eastern suburbs

since Ron and Jean Mauger

bought a property on Rookwood

Ave in 1945 for just £60.

Now, Ron and Jean’s son

Warner and wife Patsy own

Maugers – a company with

many divisions and arms including

residential and commercial

property and building projects

across the city.

Warner and Patsy were raised

in North New Brighton in the

1930s and, by 1955, Warner

was managing the well-known

Maugers Garage on the Bower

Ave and Travis Rd corner on

behalf of Ron. It was the couple’s

first business venture.

The garage was later sold to

petroleum giants BP and a station

is situated on the corner to

this day.

Warner’s late father Ron was

a house builder and began the

family’s business in 1945. He

went on to purchase and build

properties in popular eastern

suburbs streets such as Travis

Rd, Bower Ave, Bassett St, Pages

Rd, Beach Rd, Shaw Ave and

Bowhill Rd.

The Mauger family net has

now been cast far and wide, with

Warner and Patsy’s own children

Philip, Timothy, Stephen and

Penelope also having families of

their own.

One of Philip’s sons, Jordan,

was the star of television programme

The Bachelor last year.

Warner and Patsy live in Eastwood

Rise, Northshore, one of

many subdivisions that Warner

started developing in the early

1990s.

The family also does a great

deal of charitable work, which is

not often talked about.

After Warner suffered an eye

injury requiring surgery in 1964,

Ron and Jean donated a set of

surgical equipment, along with

a supporting holder designed for

infants undergoing retina surgery,

to the Canterbury District

Health Board’s ophthalmology

department a year after Warner’s

surgery.

Later, Warner and Patsy

donated a Kowa Fundus (retina

scanning) camera and committed

more than $470,000 of their

own money to the Canterbury

Charity Hospital for a “muchneeded”

expansion.

In 2011, Warner and Patsy

donated Olympus Endoscopic

Ultrasound equipment to the

Department of Gastroenterology

at Christchurch Hospital after

reading a newspaper article on

the subject.

It allowed the hospital to test

bowel and liver cancer patients

on-site rather the patients having

to fly to Auckland for the

same test. Some of the patients

who, before that, had to fly to

Auckland for treatment were too

sick to do so, and were forced to

stay put.

By June of 2012, the machine

had provided the specialised

investigation tools to meet the

needs of 160 cancer patients in

the South Island.

But the Maugers’ generosity

did not stop there.

In 2015 they knew the Canterbury

Charity Hospital Trust

needed more space following the

earthquakes’ increased strain on

the community and its health,

and so injected the trust with

more capital.

In a charity hospital newsletter

shortly after the Maugers’

donation, it stated “the Maugers’

have not only provided the

hall at Innovation Park at no

charge as the venue again for

the Canstaff Charity Hospital

Christmas Ball but have also

bought a house next door to the

hospital with the potential to

expand the hospital’s services in

the future.”

family documented in publication

The property situated on

Leacroft St was bought by the

Warner and Patsy Mauger Charitable

Foundation for more than

$470,000.

Canterbury Charity Hospital

chairman Philip Bagshaw said

the generosity and donations of

the Mauger family have assisted

the hospital’s running for a number

of years.

He said two of the new wards

at the hospital will be named in

honour of the Maugers.

“We’re about to name two of

the new buildings in their honour.

One is going to be the Patsy

Mauger House where we can do

endoscopy, dentistry and counselling

and the new one next to

that will be the Warner Mauger

House. That will principally

house things like dental surgery

and a dental laboratory for fixing

and mending dentures,” he said.

In 2013, Mt Pleasant author

Paul Corliss was contacted by

Warner in the hopes of collating

the family’s history and having it

printed in a book.

Corliss was “more than happy

to oblige” and recently completed

the three-year project. He has

now published the more than

500-page book, titled Mauger

Milestones: The Legacy of a North

Brighton Family.

“Warner and Patsy fly very

much under the philanthropy

radar but contribute enormous

sums to charities with a deliberate

lack of fanfare and little

publicity,” Corliss said.

HISTORY: The Hay’s dinosaur slide was part of the

Christchurch Santa Parade until it was sold to the Ferrymead

Heritage Park where it was chainsawed into bits. Warner

Mauger paid a contractor to fix, clean and paint the slide, but

when he offered it back to the city council it was rejected.

The book details the family’s

rise in success from the early

1900s all the way up to present

day, when Warner and Patsy

opened the Maugers Property

project Innovation Park in Templeton.

Prior to being Innovation Park,

the site was used as a school for

intellectually disabled children,

known as the Templeton Farm

Colony.

In 1967 it was disestablished,

and completely closed down in

the 1990s. After both the CDHB

and Ngai Tahu attempted and

failed to turn the land into

residential properties, it was subsequently

sold to the Maugers.

BLANK CANVAS: In 1990, the Mauger’s

Northshore land was a desolate area of grass and

weeds. Now it is a thriving subdivision.

PHOTOS: Mauger Milestones: The Legacy of a

North Brighton Family

“We got advised by a land

agent that the old Templeton

Hospital and its site were up for

sale, from the CDHB, through

Ngai Tahu. No doubt others were

also interested, and we literally

only had the weekend to assess

it and make our minds up – no

time to do the usual homework.

The boys will tell you, they

weren’t happy with the time

available to make the decision,”

Warner said.

Initially the idea for a business

park was rejected by the city

council, but in 2010 after a

change of tack their case was

heard by a commissioner, the

decision was reversed and

the Maugers were allowed to

continue with Innovation

Park.

“Innovation Park was built

upon a belief that to achieve

great things people need a great

environment to work in

. . . companies, collaborating on

projects and establishing a powerful

network of complementary

business, while employees are

inspired to explore new ideas

and possibilities while enjoying

a host of outstanding amenities,”

Warner said.

Following in the property

development footsteps of his late

father Ron, and after the sale of

the family garage to BP, Warner

bought 60 acres of land in North

Beach, behind Waimairi Beach,

for “about one million dollars” in

1991 and named the subsequent

developments Northshore.

“My mother thought I was

absolutely mad as it was just

swampy hills, tussock, broom,

lupin and old man macrocarpa,”

Warner said.

The book states that from the

first truck loads of sand excavated

from the site up until last year,

about 250 houses have since been

built and sold in the Northshore

subdivision.

Patsy and Warner also have a

passion for keeping history alive,

as can be seen with the resident

green dinosaur in their garden.

The fibreglass dinosaur

childrens’ slide originally sat on

the Farmers department store

roof, but after it was gifted to the

Ferrymead Heritage Park, it was

chainsawed into pieces.

Warner was on the board

of directors at the park at the

time, and thought the dino slide

should be saved as it was part of

the city’s history.

“We took it around to the

contracting workshop at Tahuna

St and with the help of one of

the Maugers’ workers Roger

Westerink, fibre-glassed, painted

and rebuilt it. When the restoration

project was complete I rang

parks and reserves at the city

council and said ‘the historic

dinosaur slide is all ready to go,

what park do you want me to put

it in?’ . . . the offer was rejected

on health and safety grounds,”

he said.

The slide now sits next to

Warner and Patsy’s home and is

used by local children whenever

the Maugers host street parties.

About the author:

•Paul Corliss has now

written 13 books on

New Zealand history,

biographies and

bibliographies.

•Mauger Milestones:

The Legacy of a North

Brighton Family is his

most recent publication.

Corliss said he prefers

writing about local

unsung heroes as they

are, in his eyes, a lot more

interesting and often raise

more eyebrows than the

more famous names in

communities.

•In his spare time Corliss is

also the secretary of the

Heathcote Cricket Club.

Bishopdale sports shop owner

serves rackets up to the stars

• By Andrew King

SERENA WILLIAMS may

have only played two matches

at the ASB Classic – but

needed her rackets restrung 28

times.

Bishopdale Sports World

owner Tony Ralfe was part of

a team re-stringing rackets in

Auckland for both the men’s

and women’s tournaments at

the classic.

He has been a tennis racket

stringer for the tournament for

12 years and was excited to see

the Williams sisters and world

No 20 Caroline Wozniacki.

“During her short time in

the tournament, [Serena] asked

for 28 restrings . . . we strung

four of them and, within

20 minutes, they had been

returned to be done again,” he

said.

Wozniacki and Venus

Williams had about 15

rackets restrung during the

tournament.

He said this was not unusual

as players settle into the season

and try new tensions on their

rackets.

Serena, ranked No 2 in

the world, was ousted in the

second round by American

Madison Brengle, while her

sister, Venus, currently ranked

16th in the world, beat New

Zealand’s Jade Lewis in the

first round but experienced

pain in her right arm which

forced her to pull out.

“It was a shame to see some

of those big names miss out

on the final but great for the

public who were able to see

some of the other players

perform,” he said.

Ralfe knows exactly what

kind of racket is being used

and how it has been set up.

“I was interested to see

Venus, for some reason,

deciding to go for the smaller

racket head this tournament,”

he said.

He said both sisters normally

use a 104 sq in sized racket but

Venus dropped down to a 98

sq in.

“But when the rain delay

came, she rushed in four

brand new 104s to be strung.

However, we believe she

continued to use the 98s,” he

said.

Ralfe said women’s

tournament winner,

American Lauren Davis, has

an additional “feather in her

cap” as her first tournament

win had both Williams sisters

and Wozniacki in it. He

had some advice for anyone

thinking about getting into the

restringing game.

“I ask them one question:

‘What are you like getting out

of bed?’ Because it is extremely

long hours, but a lot of good

fun.”

SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND: Alice Elworthy was part of the St Margaret’s gold

medal-winning under-19 coxed four. She also teamed up with Olivia Hutton to

finish second in the coxless pair oars final.

St Margaret’s win two golds

in windy rowing champs

ST Margaret’s College

were still able to pick

up two gold medals at

the weather-affected

Canterbury Rowing

Championships.

High winds over the

weekend meant that time

on the water at Twizel’s

Lake Ruataniwha was

limited, only allowing 22

of the finals to go ahead

before white caps on the

water stopped racing on

Sunday.

The event featured both

secondary school and club

teams, with age groups

ranging from under-15

through to open class.

St Margaret’s were able

to secure two gold medals

early on Sunday with both

the under-16 and under-19

crews winning their

respective finals.

The under-19 coxed

four of Ella Wells, Alice

Elworthy, Olivia Hutton,

Olivia Hughes and

Lucy Davidson won in

dominant fashion with a

winning time of 8mins

1.17secs.

They finished nearly six

seconds ahead of Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School in

second, and eight seconds

clear of Southland’s

Wakatipu Rowing Club.

The under-16 crew then

completed the coxed four

double for the school.

The crew of Emma

Roberts, Gaby McKellar,

Harriet Kitchingman,

Millie Crossland and

Claudia Bethwell beat

out stiff competition

from Ashburton College,

winning by just under

three seconds.

The St Margaret’s

under-19 and under-16

coxed eights recorded

the fastest finish in their

heats. However, the wind

stopped the event finals

from taking place.

It also featured gold

medals for St Andrew’s

College in the under-19

men’s coxed four and

Christchurch Boys’ High

School in the under-17

coxed eight.

A large chunk of

the weekend’s crews

will return to Lake

KIDSTUFF

Celebrating 45 years

of Childcare that Cherishes Children

In 1972, when Glennie Oborn opened

her first centre, her commitment to

parents was to keep each child Safe, Loved

and Learning. And after 45 years, every

Kindercare centre is still family owned,

guided by the same family values, and still

providing fun-filled care, that nurtures

children through kindness.

Knowing your child is Safe matters to

parents, and to Kindercare. That’s why

access to our centres is by keypad only, to

control entry and exit. Protecting children

in a secure environment is our priority.

Love is at the heart of our centres because

relationships matter. Our qualified,

experienced team ensure your child will

receive lots of cuddles and affection, which

helps them settle, because they feel loved.

Getting to know your child is a priority so

we can respond to them quickly.

Learning happens naturally, through

play, once your baby, toddler or preschooler

feels safe and loved. When they’re relaxed,

they can have fun, and enjoy discovering

their world. Your child will benefit from

freedom to move in open spaces, exploring

tactile environments for sensory learning,

and challenging themselves at each

developmental stage.

Home-made midday

meals, and morning and

afternoon snacks, ensure

busy parents don’t have to

worry about their child’s

nutritional needs. With lots

of fresh fruit and loads of

vegges for lunch, your child

will enjoy healthy variety

that’s good for them too!

Parents appreciate the

value in preparing their child

for school. At Kindercare,

we know the difference a

smooth transition makes

for your preschooler.

Our dynamic curriculum

includes social/emotional

development programs,

Letterland (introducing the

alphabet) and Cherry.bytes

(a safe and fun introduction

to technology as a learning

tool).

We’re privileged to be

entrusted with your child’s

care, and we’re here to work

alongside your family. Pop

in for a visit…we’re waiting

to meet you and your child.

Entrust your

child to the safe,

lov ng care of our

family-owned

childcare centres

Since 1972, we’ve provided more than full and part time

care and education for babies, toddlers and preschoolers -

we’ve provided a Kindercare family. And we’re here

for you, to keep your child safe, share their

discoveries, guide their enquiry, ensure

they’re ready for school and most of all, fill

your child’s days with love and fun.

Our Kindercare team have a

warm welcome waiting at a

centre near you…

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Excitement high at

Avonside Girls’ High School

2017 will be a year of progress for the

Avonside Girls’ High School whanau.

Not only will the design of their state-ofthe-art

new campus alongside Shirley

Boys’ be revealed, their BYOD (Bring Your

Own Device) scheme is being increased

to include all of the Year 9 cohort, a new

uniform is in the pipeline and the school

is adopting a new style of form class to

lend greater support to students.

Principal Sue Hume says the new system

will see each girl with the same whanau

group teacher for her five years at school.

“This model gives students the

opportunity to bond with one teacher

and have her own family within the

Avonside community. The classes will

have an hour each week together – that

will be an important time to ensure that

each student is happy and progressing

within our school environment.”

Principal Sue Hume.

Sue Hume says this is part of Avonside’s

drive to increase student wellbeing and

support.

“Avonside’s core focus is not just on

educating but empowering girls to

be the best they can be. You can’t

lift students to their highest levels

of achievement unless you have a

supportive atmosphere.”

Students are also looking forward to

increased access to digital technology

with the BYOD scheme rolling out across

the Year 9 cohort, with the view to having

full BYOD across the school by 2019.

“Technological devices are just a tool

for learning but they do unlock a whole

new way of engaging students with

their learning. It is also important our

girls have the very best IT skills for

further study and future employment

opportunities.”

2017 edition

A fresh look for

Shirley Boys’ High School

You won’t have to look hard to see one

of the new developments at Shirley Boys’

High School in 2017 – it will be on almost

every student you see.

A new uniform is being rolled out… so it’s

out with the grey shorts and walk socks

and in with a sleek new navy and light

blue kit. Along with the new look, Shirley

Boys’ is continuing to show it’s at the

forefront of education with several new

initiatives, including a unique new form

class, the roll out of a BYOD (Bring Your

Own Device) system across the whole

school and the introduction of a new

teaching model.

“All of our teachers will be given the

chance to co-teach in 2017 and 2018.

That will see two teachers working with

two classes of students at the same

time” says Headmaster John Laurenson.

“It’s a collaborative approach that we

trialed in 2016. The feedback was very

positive – teachers inspired each other

and the students liked being able to

experience a range of teaching styles.”

The new form class will have a strong

emphasis on tikanga and te reo

Māori, embracing Maori principles

such as manaakitanga (exercising

compassion and empathy), thus

providing a respectful environment

for focused mentoring and raising

student achievement. Priority for the

new class will be given to students who

are engaged in Māori cultural pursuits,

studying te reo or who have come

bilingual or immersion units.

Casebrook - ʻA School

of opportunity that will

engage and challenge

Casebrook Intermediate students will

tell you they love their school and the

learning.

Happy students are engaged students.

Engaged students succeed. At

Casebrook, we constantly review our

programmes to find the best possible

way to excite and challenge. We provide

a flexible programme that moves with

the needs of the students and the

learning that excites them.

Our classrooms promote innovative

ways of learning, with all students having

access to modern digital technology, and

learning through researching, thinking

and acting on new understanding. All

our students are catered for by adapting

our programmes to find the best ways

to teach our students and providing

learning support and extension where

needed.

Casebrook’s school culture is driven

by our REP programme. We expect

our Casebrook REPs to demonstrate

Respect, Excellence and Perseverance

to provide a positive environment where

student wellbeing is central to our school

and community. We celebrate their

success as Casebrook REPs through

our school houses and REP badges. Our

students tell us they love being part of

the Casebrook REP community and are

proud to display their achievements.

Beyond the classroom we look for

opportunities to engage our students

in cultural, artistic, musical, technical,

sporting and community programmes.

We have expert teachers who strive to

involve as many students as possible in

our groups. It is our aim to find the right

extra-curricular programme for every

one of our students.

Our students leave Casebrook filled with

new experiences, great friendships and

most importantly a newfound confidence

that can be found in a supportive,

learning-rich environment like ours.

Hornby High School

We will start 2017 with a bang, quite

literally, as we get set for the first

demolitions that precede our rebuild.

First to go are the administration block,

and the library building, due to come

down in March. Contractors then

begin the build for the first part of the

brand new Hornby High School with

our Hauora, administration, learning

commons and specialist learning spaces

that cover sciences, creative arts, and

technologies.

The work that goes on inside our

buildings is also changing with two

ongoing developments.

We are asking all students to have

Chromebooks available during their

school day. The evidence for their

significant impact on learning is growing,

all of this work underpinned with our

learning methodology of ‘Learn Create

Share’ (supported by the Manaiakalani

Outreach Programme) which we share

with our partnership schools in our Uru

Manuka cluster. This pedagogy develops

deeper learning and digital fluency, both

essential in our modern era.

We are also developing student and

staff abilities to cause learning using

project based learning. PBL is well

known to improve student engagement

and deeper learning, and following

successful trials in 2016 is set to grow in

use this year.

This all forms a part of the backdrop to

our journey towards the school’s exciting

vision ‘A centre of creative excellence’.

Make sure that you are a part of this

exciting future focussed journey.

Robin Sutton, Principal

Riccarton’s Kokiri Lodge

Experience

Outdoor education is an integral and

compulsory part of the Riccarton High

School junior programme. We own our

outdoor education centre, Kokiri Lodge,

situated in Westland, near Lake Brunner.

The Board of Governors bought the old

Kokiri school building and some 5 acres

of land in August 1973. Soon after the

purchase a bunkroom was built and a

dedicated education programme was

developed with the emphasis on inter

personal skills. The first class groups

visited Kokiri in November 1974, 40 years

ago.

The Kokiri Experience fits in well with The

Riccarton Way. Students get involved,

work hard at the challenging tasks, show

care for others, are tolerant, and always

have to be part of team. A key factor in

facing the difficulties of Kokiri is giving it

their best shot.

Each year all Year 9 and Year 10 students

travel by train to the lodge with a

teacher accompanying them on the

train. A specialist Kokiri teacher and

three instructors lead the specialist four

day programme. The four instructors

live at the Lodge for the camps. Senior

students from Year 12 and Year 13 are

involved in the programme as group

leaders – four per camp.

The Year 9 and 10 programmes are

different, and complement each other

in developing self-confidence, team

work and leadership skills in an outdoor

education context facilitated by the

experienced instructors.

Students enjoy the abseiling,

orienteering, confidence and ropes

courses. Year 10 students also

experience an exciting overnight campout

in tents in the bush.

This two year programme, unique to

Riccarton, is designed to provide a

positive introduction to the outdoors

and to develop links in the class and

confidence in the students when

they return to Christchurch. Students

often refer to their time at Kokiri as a

highlight of their school time and a truly

memorable experience.

School’s Got Talent

Villa Maria College

2017 edition

Dance Crew, from left to right: Morgan Bailey, Ella Timbrell, Molly Chalmers and Chloe Timbrell.

One of the great things about our school

is that it is a full primary (Year 1-8). This

means that our students can stay with the

same group of friends and teachers until

high school and get to take on a lot of

areas of responsibility around the school.

This year we had a large group of Year 8

Prefects who have buddied up with new

entrants, visited our local kindergarten,

led assemblies, arranged a staff vs. Year

8’s basketball tournament and worked in

the office at lunchtimes to give our hardworking

office staff a break.

We also have so many talented students

at SNBS! For the second year in a row,

our school has held an SNBS’s Got Talent

Show to showcase this talent. This is

another one of the things that our Prefect

group has helped to organise.

69 of our Year 5-8 students gave up

their morning teas and lunchtimes to

audition for their place in the Semi Finals.

There were Solo and Group categories

of Singing, Dance, Entertainment and

Instrumental. All of this could not have

happened without our dedicated

teachers, who gave up their valuable time

to judge and decide who would make

it through to the finals. Leading into the

final, the competition was fierce. The 8

finalists performed stunningly in front

of the whole school at our Whanau Hui.

It was an intensely difficult decision for

our judges, Tom and Holly from Original

Scripts Theatre School. They decided

that the overall winner was ‘Dance Crew’,

dancing to “It’s the Hard Knock Life” from

the musical Annie, and they won a $10

subway voucher (a special thanks to

Subway Ferrymead for donating these)

and Miss Gill, our Deputy Principal and

organiser of SNBS’s Got Talent, took

them out for lunch. Every participant

was awarded a certificate at our school

Whanau Hui.

109 Bay View Rd, Redcliffs

Price $739,000

4 bedrooms | 1 living room | 2 carports | Listing # FM5003

Yearning for a secluded hillside sanctuary

away from the hustle and bustle of the

city yet still within easy reach of shops,

waterfront and amenities?

If so this is a must see. Feel like you’re

on holiday in this leafy semi-rural

environment at the far end of Bay View Rd

adjacent to Barnett Park.

A well presented contemporary styled

brick and timber home with double

glazed PVC joinery, 4 bedrooms and 2

bathrooms and open plan living. There

are 3 bedrooms upstairs with sea glimpses

and 1 downstairs set up as a dayroom with

French doors opening onto the deck. The

master has sea glimpses, a feature wall and

a modern ensuite.

Facing all day sun the kitchen in soft

neutral colours, is interactive with the

dining and living area. With all glowing

timber floors and sleek tiles throughout

this creates a clean living environment for

you to enjoy.

With easily maintained 1313sqm

grounds, an enormous sun-drenched

pebbled patio and several decks for

entertaining and BBQ’s, and the park

next door, the entire family will be happy

here. There is under cover parking, lots of

storage and oodles of off street parking for

at least 4 cars.

Our owners have loved living here in

this hideaway for the past 18 years but

with children left the nest and earthquake

repairs completed, it is now time to

downsize, providing you the opportunity

to secure your future here in this natural

secluded microclimate.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Make wise

choices for

holiday fun

Don’t spend your holiday

recuperating from a preventable

accident. The double whammy of

the holiday and summer seasons

are in full swing. Accidents lead

the way for ambulance rides and

healing time. An accident is just

that. An event that happens from

a series of events, causing bodily

harm. In most cases those events

could have been prevented with

a little more thought behind the

decision.

At Physiotherapy Associates,

located at 86 Wainoni Rd,

Wainoni, they pride themselves

in assisting the healing process

and they are strong advocates in

that awareness and assessment

are the key to prevention.

“We stress to our clients, the

following; always have a first aid

kit in the car, on the boat, or at

your location and do a first aid

course. Muscle and ligament

strains and sprains are some

of the most common accident

results.” Says head physiotherapist

Richard.

Alcohol consumption is one

of the biggest contributors to

any accident. As people mature

in many cases they acquire that,

“invisible, superhero syndrome”

where they feel they can do

actions with the same buoyancy as

when they were younger. In many

instances this leads to the result

of a fall, tweak or miscalculate in

the action and an injury incurs.”

Richard advises, “If there is

severe pain, deformity or inability

to bear weight seek medical help

or call 111 immediately. If soft

tissue pain does not improve by

the order of about 50% within 48

hours, visit your GP, afterhours or

your local physiotherapist.”

Fun is what life is all about.

Creating memories and enjoying

yourself. Just remember when

water-skiing, swimming,

playing cricket, touch, tramping,

skateboarding, running, biking,

walking, or any physical activity

to assess the situation, look at the

potential outcome and make that

choice to protect yourself and

Anthony’s back

with a new

show!

LOCAL performer, Anthony Easterbrook-Carter returns

to the Hornby Working Men’s Club on Saturday 18th

February with his latest show... Retro Rockin’

“If you love dancing and singing along to the great

Rock & Rock 'n' Roll Hits of the 50's, 60's & 70's then

this is for you,” said Anthony. “All the songs are hits

you will know and want to dance along to. Songs from

Beatles, The Beach Boys, Cliff Richard, Shadows, Elvis,

Roy Orbison, The Shirelles, Gerry & Pacemakers, CCR,

Doobie Brothers and many more.”

Anthony, who has been singing professionally for

over 25 years, has shared the stage with many

esteemed artists including Frankie Stevens, Suzanne

Prentice, Toni Williams, George McArdle (Little River

Band bass player).

A stellar lineup of top musos form his backing band,

‘Backpack’.

On guitar and vocals: John Campbell was founder
