Vietnam vets pay homage to fallen mates

• By Julia Evans

ALMOST FIVE decades ago

Eddie Bassett and Brian Mannix

were fighting in the jungles of

Vietnam.

It was a conflict that claimed

39 New Zealanders, many of

them their mates.

These days, the two Vietnam

veterans catch up at the Papanui

RSA for a beer and talk about

old times.

On Anzac Day, Mr Mannix

and Mr Bassett will proudly

walk among surviving servicemen

and women from other

conflicts.

“On Anzac Day, I think of my

grandparents. Both of my grandads

were in World War 1 and I

had uncles in World War 2. We

think of all the guys, not just the

old guys . . . even today’s wars,”

Mr Mannix said.

He now attends Anazc Day

services with his grandchildren.

Mr Bassett said it’s a very important

day which all veterans

look forward to. He said it’s a

day to reflect on where his mates

are.

“All the guys get together, it’s

about the only time we do,” he

said.

They joke over a beer about

how much faster modern artillery

is.

Mr Mannix was in the 161

Battery Artillery in Vietnam

from 1969 to 1970.

“The infantry walked everywhere.

Well, we had more brains

and went on the back of a truck,”

he said. He can’t help giving fellow

vets a bit of stick.

Mr Bassett was part of the

Victor 1 Company Infantry.

He saw fights in Malaya and

Borneo from 1965 before heading

over to Vietnam two years

later.

In May, Mr Bassett will have a

reunion with the rest of his company,

but he said out of nearly

200 soldiers, there are now only

60 left.

Now their generation is “getting

on,” Mr Bassett said the

RSA is looking to give more of a

voice to the younger generation

moving in.

He’d love to see them taking

a role in the future – “we’re all

veterans,” he said.

looms

for third

decision

• By Julia Evans

THE PLAN for a controversial

third lane on the Waimakariri

Bridge will go to the New Zealand

Transport Agency for approval in

June.

It will then go out for public

consultation, and the Papanui-

Innes Community Board said it

will make its voice heard again.

On April 7, the greater

Christchurch urban development

strategy implementation

committee approved the lane on

the condition that it was for high

occupancy vehicles only.

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

and deputy chairwoman Emma

Norrish made a deputation opposing

the lane for fear it will add

significant congestion.

But Ms Norrish said the fact it

would only be for high-occupancy

vehicles has lightened the blow.

“It’s making the best of a bad

situation,” she said.

However, the board is still

concerned about the predicted

increase in traffic.

“Any extra traffic that is coming

in from the north, and is

going into the CBD, has to go to

through the St Albans area,” Ms

Norrish said.

THERE’S NOTHING like sharing

a few tales over a beer with your

mates, and there’ll be plenty of

that next Tuesday – Anzac Day.

On page 1 today, reporter Julia

Evans catches up with two Vietnam

War veterans, mates from

that entrenched conflict who share

a beer regularly at the Papanui

RSA.

All wars are bad and the outcome

is usually grim.

Fighting in Vietnam would have

been hell; similar to the Pacific

during World War 2 where the

enemy could be literally an arms

length away hiding in the jungle,

ready to strike.

There was the heat, torrential

rain, hand-to-hand fighting to the

death, and taking fire at very short

range.

So think of the servicemen and

women on Anzac Day.

They certainly deserve a beer.

Sex worker dispute could go to court

• By Andrew King

THE DISPUTE over sex

workers being able to solicit in a

residential area could be tested

in the courts, a Christchurch

lawyer said.

St Albans resident Matt Bonis,

along with solicitor and Labour

candidate for Christchurch Central

Duncan Webb presented

a slide show to the city council

detailing the rubbish, abuse,

complaints and threats they have

received.

Mr Webb said

the dispute lies

in the definition

of “commercial

activity” set out

in the city council

Duncan

Webb

Helen

Beaumont

public places

bylaw.

City council

head of strategic

policy Helen

Beaumont said sex

workers do not

use the billboards

and banners that

are typical of

other business

enterprises.

“The mere presence of a

person on a street corner, even

if the manner of their attire and

behaviour suggest that they may

be working, is insufficient evidence

that a commercial activity

HAD ENOUGH: City council head of strategic policy Helen Beaumont said sex workers do

not use the billboards and banners that are typical of other business enterprises so it is hard

to prove it is a commercial activity.

is being advertised or carried

out,” she said.

But Mr Webb said they have

got the definition “wrong” and

the city council could enforce

the bylaw.

He said if it comes down to

residents saying it is commercial

activity, and the city council says

it isn’t, then it will have to be

tested in the courts.

Mr Bonis said he has “no

problem” paying for Mr Webb’s

time to take it to court, or work

with city council staff to find a

solution within the bylaw.

“I’m hopeful the city

councillors, on an individual

level, will take a commonsense

approach to this problem,” he

said.

A report is due on May 4

detailing if a new clause in the

public places bylaw is needed or

if section 13 of the current bylaw

can be effectively enforced.

Section 13 states: The city

council may declare from time

to time, that any public place, or

specified part of a public place:

a) Has been set aside for special

use or activity; or b) cannot

be used for a particular use or

activity.

Ms Beaumont said the

city council is looking at

using section 13 to solve the

sex worker problem in the

residential area.

“The city council has obtained

legal advice on the ability to

enforce this policy in relation

to sex workers but there

are significant enforcement

difficulties,” she said.

In Brief

COMMUNITY WORKER

The Bishopdale Community

Trust has recently undergone

a staff restructure. A new

community development

worker, Chris Coles, has been

appointed. Mr Coles has a

long history of working in the

community sector, including

in the United Kingdom with

ex-prisoners and people with

mental health issues.

SATELLITE SCHOOL

When Shirley Boys’ High School

and Avonside Girls’ High School

merge campuses at the QE II

site, Ferndale School will join

them. A smaller satellite version

of the Merivale-based special

education school will be set up

on the campus set to open in

2019.

PLACARD: Murray Turley protested roadworks that are narrowing the entrance

to Grassmere St from Main North Rd.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Phil Day responds to

the story in Nor’West

News regarding

Murray Turley’s

protest over work

narrowing Grassmere

St and Main North Rd

for fear of creating a

traffic nightmare

A road from Grassmere

St to Rutland St would help

get traffic off Main North

Rd and out of Northlands.

Mothers complained

that traffic would endanger

their kids at Paparoa St

School, yet they persist

in getting their kids out

of cars on the road rather

than pedestrian side.

I saw the paint marks

on the ground at Grassmere

St and Main North

Rd corner and couldn’t

believe how narrow the

council intended to make

the road.

The paint lines are now

concrete and I predict

mayhem as I sometimes

need to drive a bus to and

from Ngaio Marsh.

With the new cycleway

running between car

parking and pavement, I

also envisage cyclists being

knocked off by passengers

opening their doors

while exiting cars as the

passenger, unlike drivers,

have no rear vision mirrors

to see cyclists coming

from behind on the

cycleway.

Why wasn’t the pathway

behind Tulloch Pl not

extended all the way past

Ngaio Marsh to Paparoa St

Club skipper wins St Albans

cricketer of the year award

• By Andrew King

SOLID SEASON: Clem Gibbens was named St Albans player

CLUB CAPTAIN Clem Gibbens

has been named St Albans

player of the year.

Gibbens, 27, was the third

highest wicket taker in the club

with 44 wickets at 11.11, scored

318 runs at 15.90 and skippered

the victorious 2A Sabres twoday

side.

He was also named his team’s

player of the year, best morning

grade men’s all-rounder and

won the award for most runs

off a single over by a batsman,

smashing 22 against Riccarton

on December 17.

“I’m not the kind of guy to

sing my own praises; I did what

I needed to do for the team,”

Gibbens said.

“There has been some really

good cricketers who have taken

the award before me and to be

included with those guys and

girls is quite humbling.”

His 22 off one over, he said

came at a time when his side

were batting to save the game.

“I thought I’d try accelerate

things and I got the right deliveries

. . . the guy down the other

end did tell me to calm down at

one point,” he said.

His brother, Reid Gibbens

picked up awards as well, including

the Zin Harris Memori-

of the year.

al Trophy for young male player

of the year, the Don Sandman

Memorial Cup for most wickets

in the club with 47 at 13.02, and

had the best individual bowling

figures with 7-3 against Lancaster

Park on March 4.

Clem described his brother’s

feat against Lancaster as a “season

defining” spell.

“I was bowling at the other

end and couldn’t get a wicket at

all,” he said.

“It swung the [2A] competition

in our favour. [Lancaster]

were ahead of us and a loss to

them would have sealed our fate

to not win the title.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Time Honoured

Remedy

1 in 2 People

Deficient in B12

According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis”

from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and

honey (CV & H) can be an important part of

a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters

who regularly consumed cider vinegar and

honey had excellent health with many putting

in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar

and honey on arthritis can be remarkable

with many patients reporting almost total

relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar

and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid

and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted

calcium deposits and helped the body control

calcium use.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

honey at the onset of complaints such

as the common cold, sinusitis,

asthmatic attacks, hay fever,

and childhood diseases

such as chicken pox

and measles, was

accompanied by

an improvement

in the condition

with symptoms

either disappearing,

or the conditions were

extremely mild and soon

over.

Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness

of the apple in a form that is readily accepted

by the body. Scientists have found over 90

different substances in ACV, among them 20

important trace elements, minerals, essential

enzymes, a number of different acids including

malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the

form of potash and pectin. A scientific study

at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven

ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can

destroy free radicals, which are a major factor

in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down

cholesterol formations in the blood vessels.

ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also

promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients

and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize

any toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all cider vinegar

is made in the traditional way and results are

likely to prove disappointing with these other

vinegars.

M E M B E R O F R V A

Emerging research has shown as

many as 50% of older adults and as

many as 25% of younger adults are

deficient in vitamin B12. Scientists at

Rush University Medical Center found

those most deficient in vitamin B12 to

have the smallest brain mass and the

lowest scores on tests measuring shortterm

memory, concentration and brain

performance. Another study showed

that older people with higher levels of

B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier

brains and score higher on cognitive

tests than those with lower levels. Yet

another recent landmark study showed

that B12 supplementation slows the

accelerated rate of brain shrinkage and

declining cognitive function. B12 is essential

for energy production, cell health, regulation of

mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair,

and prevention of homocysteine a serious

cardiovascular risk factor that is known to

cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels.

It can also increase the chances of a stroke.

Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk

of vision loss in a study of participants aged

40+ who supplemented with B12. Another

study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12 appears

to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining

with age as the digestive system becomes less

efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other

drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good

news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin

sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the

mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract

have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels

in the body.

Up to 50% Low in Vitamin B12

BRAIN FOG, FORGETFUL, FEELING OLD, LOW ENERGY, MOOD SWINGS,

DIFFICULTY SLEEPING, PINS & NEEDLES, NUMBNESS IN LEGS

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.

• Memory & Brain Performance

We currently have savings up to $600

Would you like to maximise the number

of days you can use your swimming pool?

Heating your pool can do this and one of the

most cost effective ways is with a water heat

pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply, install

and service you swimming pool heat pump

providing you with a comfortable, extended

swimming season.

Servicing your heat pump is extremely

important to ensure that it is working as

effectively and efficiently as possible resulting

in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power

all cleaning companies are equal. We are

constantly hearing of people being charged

huge amounts for servicing and all they are

heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all

major brands, we are able to repair these under

warranty if they are still within the warranty

It is important to remember, when selecting

an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does

not cover the installation and consumers could

be responsible for any repair or damage caused

to the system due to poor installation. Enviro

Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

Balanced

Pressure

Ventilation

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Accupuncture

without needles

NOR’WEST NEWS

SpeciAl offer - free firSt treAtment

Book by may 19

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other

physical and mental health issues, Chinese health practitioner

Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment that brings fast, and

often immediate results.

A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan

established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch

in 1993. As she continued her research and medical

practice, she discovered a reflexology network on

the human body, an exciting new discovery that

became the foundation of her new treatment –

acupuncture without needles.

Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt

instrument to stimulate the reflexology points

on the face or other parts of the body. When the

point is stimulated by pressure, a message is sent

to the repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan

explains, the treatment increases energy, which

boosts the body’s healing system.

The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but

that is a slow process. In addition, many people will

start to use their injured part, for example a knee

or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore

prolonging the injury and even causing chronic

pain.

With her powerful treatment, results are

produced very quickly – even instantly.

She likens it to the differences between the

power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane

– other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network.

It brings fast results because it is a very precise

treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people

of all ages with many different types of pain in all

parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects.

Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing

low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s

treatment.

For people that have gained weight due to their

addiction to sugar, reflexology network treats the

cause of the addiction, enabling them to more easily

control their weight.

Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s

Reflexology Network, which introduces the

treatment and explains how it works. Her website,

www.drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes

treatment videos, where people who have had the

treatment speak about the fast relief it has brought

them.

Dr Lan is offering a free first treatment for all

those who make an appointment by Friday, May

19. Phone 323 4168, mobile 027 231 8388.

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

The ultimate campus for

Avonside and Shirley

A large Performing Arts Centre, three full-sized

Gyms (complete with climbing wall) and four

Sportsfields are among the key facilities that will be

enjoyed by Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley

Boys’ High School in the future.

The two schools are being rebuilt alongside

one another and next to the new QEII Sport and

Recreation Centre. They will open in time for Term

Two of 2019 so students who enrol to study at the

schools next year, will only spend just over a year on

the schools’ existing sites.

The new campus’ design was created by New

Zealand’s ASC Architects – part of the ShapED

consortium that is building and will also maintain

the new schools.

Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume says being

able to start from scratch has enabled ASC to come

up with the ‘ultimate campus’.

“We are delighted. The new campus will feature

better facilities than either of our schools have ever

had in the past.”

Shirley Boys’ Headmaster John Laurenson agrees,

describing the design as modern and sympathetic

to the surrounding area.

“The two schools will be set back from Travis

Road with numerous trees and landscaped areas. It

will be a very green campus,” says John Laurenson.

As well as the major facilities, each school will

have a long list of specialist learning facilities.

Highlights include an Electronics Lab, a 2D and

3D Printing Room, six Science Labs and an Indoor

Fitness Centre (complete with exercise equipment

including rowing machines, stationery bikes and

treadmills).

Sue Hume says the design enables the schools to

offer students completely new experiences.

“The facilities are just so much better than what

we have now. For example, in each school’s Social

Sciences and Media there is a large Editing Suite,

Presentation Space, two Recording Studios and a

Media Studio. It’s a big step up,” says Sue Hume.

John Laurenson says the schools will continue to

deliver quality single sex education.

“Students will spend most of their day in a singlesex

environment – that is really important to us.

Single sex education benefits both boys and girls.

Our students will also benefit, both educationally

and socially, from being able to learn alongside and

mix with students from the partner school. It is a

fantastic opportunity.”

Two of the gyms on the campus will feature a climbing wall and be able

to be linked for major events. The schools will also share a third gym

The schools will have numerous outdoor areas that will be

landscaped to enable students and teachers to work outside.

The front of the campus will face Travis Road but be set behind a large landcaped courtyard and plantings.

of our College. Student wellbeing is

important to us, as is a strong partnership

between school and family. Marian College

has a friendly atmosphere, which comes

from staff and students knowing each other

well.

Marian’s academic results are exceptional

and we are dedicated to creating a positive

learning environment which uses the

best of modern teaching practices and

information technologies; we also have high

expectations. Our students learn to become

independent, resilient and adaptable young

women, well prepared with skills for the

future. Every student at Marian College

is nurtured and her skills and talents are

developed.

Hornby

High

School

When choosing the right school for

our tamariki we often go by the ‘feeling’

we have when we visit as much as by the

programmes that schools have on offer.

Hornby High School’s feeling is one of

positive relationships that support learning.

In 2016 we reconsidered our vision as a

school, and resolved that our aspiration

is to be ‘A centre of creative excellence’

in everything that we do, whether visual

arts or chemistry, volleyball or music,

management or curriculum organisation.

The world demands fewer people who can

do repetitive tasks and more people who

can think creatively and critically. In doing

this we haven’t forgotten the importance of

the strong relationships that we build with

all of our students, and the importance of

individualising learning pathways so that

we come as close as we can to meeting

every individual student’s needs. We are

also committed to engaging with whanau

in any and every way we can, this all taking

place as we almost completely rebuild the

physical school. I personally invite you to

come along and meet with our skilled staff,

and the amazing young people who make

Hornby High School such a wonderful

place to be.

Hagley sets

you up for

life

If you are looking for

a high school where

teachers work closely

with you to ensure you

get the very best out of

your high school years,

then Hagley’s Junior

Graduating College is the

right choice for you.

We are often asked,

what makes Hagley different? We have

a culture like no other. No-one wears a

uniform and everyone is on a first name

basis, but that is just for starters. Students

come to Hagley because they’re treated

with respect and valued as individuals.

Hagley’s Junior Graduating College

has small classes and we take a personal

approach. It is all about what we can do

to help you. Classes are fun, focused and

inspire you to be the very best you can.

What does that mean for you? You feel

that your teachers are interested in you

and care about your learning, that you are

experiencing success – and much more.

We love our students aiming high and

doing well. Students graduate into Hagley’s

large Senior College where they succeed

academically and in many other ways, as

well as become our school leaders. This is

all built on the great foundations laid in our

Junior College.

Hagley’s Junior Graduating College

combines the best of both worlds: freedom

to be yourself and enjoy school in a

structured and supportive environment

where achievement is celebrated.

Experience the Hagley difference – it will

set you up for life!

Formation is at the heart of the education

Middleton Grange School provides – a

whole of life formation. We see learning

as holistic; it aims to instruct the mind,

shape the heart and equip the hand. The

root of formation is faith and so Middleton

Grange not only provides a first rate general

education but also biblically based teaching

in the Christian faith.

Formation of the mind is not primarily

intellectual contemplation or conceptual

mastery but a learning that nurtures

wisdom and discernment. It is a learning

that challenges the mind to think, discern

and critique the ideas and theories pupils

are exposed to from a Christian perspective.

Middleton Grange’s learning culture allows

the formation of the heart so that it shapes

Christian Integrated

Schools

Working together for the good of

students and families has been a successful

recipe for Christian Integrated Schools in

Christchurch.

The Christian School Network has been

in existence for over ten years. Aidanfield

Christian School, Emmanuel Christian

School, Hillview Christian School and

Middleton Grange School decided in

2005 that there was much to be gained

by working together cooperatively.

They recognised opportunities to share

successful teaching practice, curriculum

development initiatives across a wide

spectrum of school operations as well as

cooperatively strengthening their special

the character of each pupil to develop

habits of righteousness, compassion and

integrity. This formation of the mind and

heart generates responsiveness. We want

our pupils to engage in the society they

live in, to be of benefit and blessing in a

practical way.

For Middleton Grange School, while our

academic results are of the highest level,

what is highly prized, is that our pupils

exercise wisdom, serve the community

and promote the well-being of others. It is

about forming the pupil to be the person

God created them to be.

All of this is summed up in the school

motto: Character, Excellence, Service for

the Glory of God.

Christian Character. They recognised that

their ability to serve students and families

was greatly enhanced by working together

in a close and trusting relationship.

The success of the network has seen other

schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece

Rangiora New Life School became part of

the network. The schools joined together to

support the genesis of Ashburton Christian

School and also culminated in the start up

of a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015.

The schools have developed interlocking

enrolment schools which assists in

providing transparent pathways in

Christian education from new entrant

through to Year 13.

A further strength has been a cooperative

engagement with the Ministry of Education

who have been pivotal in assisting the

networks successful development.

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Educating

boys with boys We

Medbury School is the only independent

boys’ school in Christchurch, offering an

education for both dayboys and boarders

from Years 1 to 8. Medbury offers a

traditional education, encompassing the

Medbury values of manners and respect,

and their vision is to provide an education

which prepares boys for life in the 21st

Century.

Whilst placing a high value on

Literacy and Numeracy in a ‘boysonly’

learning environment, Medbury

also believes in helping boys develop as

confident individuals, and developing

personal attributes, such as organisation,

confidence, relationships with others, and

independence.

At Medbury, the focus

is on the ‘whole boy’, and

small class sizes enable

teachers to deliver a

personalised learning

programme, ensuring

that every boy has the

support, extension

and encouragement he

needs to discover and

develop his particular

strengths. The learning

programmes are all

focused on a boy’s way

of learning, providing

them with a structured

environment, with competition, boundaries

and an opportunity to succeed.

Medbury’s Headmaster, Peter Kay, states

“Our passion at Medbury is to unlock the

potential of every boy. It is why we exist –

to understand each boy’s opportunities and

challenges, then personalise an education

which encourages him to strive to be the

very best he can be. Friendships, values

and a quiet self-confidence that comes

with sound preparation, will provide

an invaluable foundation for the boys’

educational journeys ahead.”

Papanui High School

- preparing students for their future

“Our aim is simple... to provide the best education possible for every student”

are making a difference for our

students and they are doing incredibly well.

The school has worked hard to consolidate

recent initiatives to ensure sustained and

continuous improvement.

Giving students the opportunity to study

from an innovative and broad curriculum is

critical to providing each student a pathway

that meets their individual needs. We allow

for a greater range and flexibility in subject

choice including the utilization of the

secondary/tertiary interface. This reinforces

the philosophy underpinning personalised

learning and is strongly supported by

understanding our students’ interests,

passions, talents, and ultimately their career

aspirations.

All that we do here is reinforced by

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and

high expectations – what we call “Our Full

service Model”. The school highly values

the connectedness of curricular and cocurricular

learning. We have a philosophical

understanding that the holistic development

of the student is critical to their individual

success.

We understand that for effective learning

to take place, it has to be implemented in such

a way that students will be highly engaged.

The school does this in a ‘forward thinking’

way by creating learning environments that

allow our students to see value in what they

do and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what

we represent and we demonstrate this by

having young adults leave our school as

confident learners who have gained the

appropriate qualifications and social skills

to become valued contributing members of

society.

You are invited to view our website,

school charter, ERO report, and/or contact

the school for more information.

We look forward to welcoming all

prospective students and their families/

whanau to visit our school.

FANCY 'a side' of ocean view with your brekkie?

Well it's available on the menu at the Pierview

Restaurant.

Located upstairs in the New Brighton Club, the

Pierview Restaurant has always been a popular

destination for dining and private functions.

Offering uninterrupted views of beach, pier and

coastline, the view is a stunning accompaniment to

any occasion.

Warmer weekends in Canterbury have seen an

increase in people enjoying the beach side and to

add to the seaside attraction the Pierview is now

open Sundays from 10.30am to 2pm for brunch.

Offering all the expected scrumptious

breakfast/brunch delights, the menu also caters to

children.

Apart from Sunday Brunch the Pierview is open

from 5.30pm Friday to Sunday serving quality, yet

very affordable, a la carte dining.

The last Sunday of the month has turned into a

tradition with the Pierview’s ‘all you can eat’ Buffet.

Priced at just $25 per person, tables fill fast on

buffet nights, so bookings are essential. And on all

the other Sundays, there’s a choice of the regular

dinner menu, blackboard specials, or take

advantage of the great value $25 set three course

Sunday special.

Mother’s Day is approaching - Sunday 14th May

- so be sure to book soon to secure your table on

388 9416.

Downstairs the club's Tramshed Bistro is open

for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday with a

great selection of meals, light meals, and snacks.
