RIBBON: Transport Minister Simon Bridges and Mayor Lianne Dalziel with St Albans brothers Luka, 4, and Wolfgang Moeller, 7,

opening the Papanui Parallel cycleway. ​

Papanui cycleway opened

CHRISTCHURCH was

recently named New Zealand’s

top place to cycle.

And after the official opening

of the Papanui Parallel cycleway,

north-west cyclists

are finding out why.

On Friday, Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and Transport Minister

Simon Bridges cut the ribbon and

had the first ride along the route.

“The Papanui Parallel is a

vital route for the northern

part of the city and is expected

to attract many new commuters,

shoppers and recreational

cyclists,’’ Ms Dalziel said.

The cycleway is 5km and

connects the central city to

Northlands Shopping Centre

via Colombo St, Rutland St and

Grassmere St.

Woman

suspects:

Police

make

arrests

• By Andrew King

A quick-thinking neighbour

filmed two burglary suspects,

helping police catch them a short

distance away.

​The woman on Solomon Ave,

Redwood, saw the two men on

the property at about 1pm on June

19, and grabbed her phone and

started to film them.

They left on cycles and she

phoned police, giving them a

description.

Police found a 22-year-old and

a 25-year-old in an alleyway off

Grimseys Rd, near the rear of the

St Bede’s College sports grounds,

about 1.5km from Solomon Ave.

Police confirmed the two suspects

from footage the neighbour

had provided, they also had property

on them which was allegedly

stolen from the address.

Both appeared in the district

court on Thursday charged with

burglary and have been remanded

on bail to appear on July 14. No

pleas have been entered yet.

Further charges could still be

laid, Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

ONE OF the best lines of defence

against burglars are nosey

neighbours.

A noisy dog and burglar alarms

help too of course, but a neighbour

with a phone is what every

would-be burglar dreads.

That’s because a photo of a

burglar in the act is very hard to

defend in court.

So a bouquet for the neighbour

who took video footage of two

burglary suspects (see page 1) last

week in Redwood.

She called the police who were

quickly in the area and two

people fitting the descriptions

on bikes were stopped for

questioning.

Once the video footage was

examined by police the 22 and

25-year-old were arrested.

They have appeared in court

and were remanded on bail to

next month.

Good work nosey neighbour.

Jellie Park cycle incentive cut

• By Julia Evans

SPENDING on cycleways in

Christchurch has topped $156

million.

But the city council will

not continue an incentive

programme to get people

cycling to Jellie Park Sports and

Recreation Centre because there

was not enough uptake during

the trial.

And Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

members can’t see the logic

behind it.

During February, to coincide

with the Cycle Aotearoa

Programe, the trial was run that

if you cycled to Jellie Park five

times you received a free pool

entry and bottle of water.

It was deemed a success

by board chairman David

Cartwright as well as board

member and chairwoman of the

Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project

committee, Bridget Williams.

Ms Williams said the

initiative provided “simple

wins” such as health benefits,

easing traffic and boosting cycle

numbers.

It was intended after the trial

that the scheme would be rolled

out across all city council sports

and recreation centres, such as

Pioneer and Graham Condon.

CYCLE: Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project committee

chairwoman Bridget Williams wants to see more people

cycling to Jellie Park.

PHOTO: ANDREW KING

But she said a month was not

long enough and it would take

time for public awareness to

build.

“I don’t see any harm in it

continuing, people just need

a wee bit of a carrot . . . good

things take time,” Ms Williams

said.

And Mr Cartwright also said

he didn’t understand why it

wasn’t continuing.

“We’ve spent a significant

amount of money putting

cycleways in, it’s a good way

to get people using them,” Mr

Cartwright said.

He said making people leave

their cars at home required

good infrastructure and a

change in attitude.

The community board

received a report from city

council western area operations

manager Martin McGregor.

It said there were 117 visits

to Jellie Park by bicycle in

February.

“The programme ran

smoothly and had a small

to moderate uptake,” Mr

McGregor said in the report.

But he said the uptake didn’t

suggest there is a demand for a

permanent incentive. Though it

will run again next February at

all centres.

“This trial has shown that

run in conjunction with

the nationwide awareness

programme during the month

of February engagement in the

idea of cycling to our centres

can be maximised,” he said.

The incentive proved there

were at least 100 empty car

parks that would otherwise have

been full during a peak summer

month, Mr Cartwright said.

The community board also

funded bicycle locks for Jellie

Park.

They are being used 30

times a week and will soon be

available at all centres.

incentive to get people

cycling is a good idea? Send

PARK UPDATE

Work has begun on installing the

new playground equipment at

Abberley Park in St Albans. The old

equipment has all been removed.

The city council is also doing work

to maintain the pathways through

winter.

CRANFORD ST REPORT

City council staff will provide

information regarding noise levels

and vibrations on Cranford St. The

Papanui-Innes Community Board

asked staff for a report and baseline

data prior to the Northern Arterial

route being commissioned.

NO STOPPING

New no stopping restrictions will

be placed on Sawyers Arms Rd

near Morrison Ave to make way

for buses stopping. Cars have been

parking near the bus stop, which

is making it hard for buses to stop

safely and efficiently. The markings

were approved by the Papanui-

RECOGNITION:

Kendo coach Karl

Hitchcock with

TV3 news anchor

Mike McRoberts

receiving his

award. Right: He

is pictured with

members of the

Canterbury Kendo

Club.

Film inspires volunteer’s

30 years of kendo

• By Julia Evans

WITH A name like Hitchcock, it

doesn’t come as a surprise it was

a film that inspired the Merivale

coach who received an award for

his volunteer work.

First seeing kendo on

television in the early 70s, it

wasn’t until Karl Hitchcock saw

the first Star Wars film in 1977

that he began practising the

sport himself.

“When I saw it first, it was

something I wanted to do and

then when the Star Wars movies

came out, it made me want to do

it even more,” he said.

Although he did admit the

early Star Wars films didn’t

really get kendo right – it was

1999’s The Phantom Menace that

was choreographed by a kendo

instructor.

“It was the only good thing

about that movie,” he said.

Fast forward 11 years and in

1988 Mr Hitchcock co-founded

the Canterbury Kendo Club –

Sei Tou Ken Yu Kai – with Alex

Bennett.

Last week during Volunteer

Week after almost 30 years and

12,000 hours of dedication to

kendo, Mr Hitchcock received

an award for his service.

When it began, Canterbury

Kendo was one of the first kendo

clubs in New Zealand and the

first in the South Island.

“Back in the early days there

weren’t many people doing it,”

Mr Hitchcock said.

Now the club has up to 40

regular members, which the club

puts down to his commitment to

the sport.

Mr Hitchcock coaches both

children and adults classes for

eight hours a week on a Monday,

Wednesday and Friday at the

club’s Sockburn dojo.

For Mr Hitchcock, there is

a very deep connection to the

sport – he finds it centres and

relaxes him, helping with his

bipolar disorder.

“I use kendo as a mirror for my

mental health … kendo evens

me out,” he said.

Plans for campaign

to help newcomers

• By Julia Evans

A CAMPAIGN to get strangers

smiling at each other could be

on the cards for Papanui.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board members who attended

a recent national community

board conference have

suggested that the

board explore a “smile

campaign” for the area.

Board chairwoman Ali

Jones (right) said the idea

is based on welcoming

new people into the

region and community.

“We were so good coming

together after the earthquakes,

people are still doing it really

hard in parts of our ward and

this is a campaign about telling

people they are not alone, we

as a community are there to

support and help them,” Ms

Jones said.

The board is looking at

including local school students

as photographers, designers,

videographers to run posts on

its Facebook page.

She said the idea was inspired

by the campaign successfully

run by the Ashburton District

Council last year.

The district council set up

a sofa at events and around

the area for residents to stop

and have a conversation with

a stranger from a different

background.

However, it ran for the first

time in 2015 in Christchurch

by the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce as

a response to the overseas

workers coming for the

rebuild.

“The premise behind

the Ashburton “smile”

campaign may not be

applicable to a Papanui Innes

or even Christchurch context,

then again it may be,” Ms Jones

said.

She said because it’s very

early days, the board will need

to consider costs and how it

implements it – possibly using

schools, community groups

and local shops.

The board will be holding

a workshop about how the

campaign could be organised

in the ward as soon as possible.

“The board hopes to have a

presentation from the Ashburton

campaign team, very soon so we

can start to progress things from

there,” Ms Jones said.

and features a good mix of civic

issues, crime and community

stories.”

Mike Fletcher who judged the

most improved newspaper category

said of The Star: “The paper

is a cracker. It is a joy to read.

Judging by The Star’s pagination

growth, the readers and advertisers

like it and value it too.

“The Star is filling a vital niche

for news and views in Christchurch.

Every page is attractive.

Every page is interesting.”

It was a big night for Star

portfolio categories and

Michaela Bolster was the sales

excellence winner.

‘The Star is filling a vital

promoting and encouraging

cycling, you add capacity to

roads without having to spend

millions by building new ones.

The university has a much larger

student body than schools do

and have students coming and

going all day. The entrances to

schools are busy at 9am and

3pm, they have lower speed

limits at those times as well as

road patrols, which is enough.

Trevor Taylor – I think we

should have someone carrying

a red flag walk in front of every

car and truck in Christchurch.

That way we will be able to

eliminate all vehicles crashes.

Nothing is more important than

Lucinda Rees – How about

30km/h speed limits outside

schools too as recommended by

the World Health Organisation.

Drivers just need to get used to

this speed limit, as they have

done in Europe. The traffic keeps

moving, but at a safe speed.

Wendy Charlotte Olivier

– I have to laugh at this idea,

people don’t even keep in the

speed limits in a school zone.

Bicycles are not meant to be on

the roads, it is not fair to put that

responsibility on a driver as well

as all the other rules they have to

keep to. I think cyclists have too

much privilege and I think this

needs to stop.

Jason Gemmill – Absolutely

insane! Total madness!

SLOW DOWN:

The proposed

area around the

university where

the speed

limit could be

reduced. ​

Anna Henderson – Yes

good idea. A large number of

university students cycle (which

is a great thing). It’s also very

much encouraged by the uni

which puts the parking prices up

exceedingly high on purpose to

discourage driving. Two of my

flatmates have been knocked off

their bicycles by cars who were

completely in the wrong and just

didn’t look. At least if they’re

going slower it might help.

Graham Batchelor –

Slowing traffic on this part of

the Unicycle should have been

part of the original design. I also

think that this route which is

used as a rat run from Clyde Rd

to Kilmarnoch St be blocked at

David Butler – Doesn’t work

here, you have the chance now

to build proper cycle paths like

Amsterdam. Cars and bicycles

don’t mix.

Tanya Hyde – Not sure if

lowering the speed limit would

help decrease the number

of accidents as it’s ignorant/

inconsiderate driving or

cycling that’s the cause. But if

a lower speed limit reduces the

seriousness of accidents then

that’s a start. But we need better

education for both motorists and

cyclists on keeping them safe

on the road. If both switched

places for the day they would

understand the other side. I

drive and cycle in the city and I

find it scary being a cyclist and

uneasy driving around cyclists.

Mel Schmidt – Making the

speed limit for cars lower won’t

affect the sheer arrogance of

cyclists who think the road is

theirs.

Second hearing for liquor store

NOR’WEST NEWS

• By Julia Evans

YET ANOTHER hearing date

has been set for the controversial

Trafford St liquor store bid.

Samarth Rajeshkumar

licence late last year for 2a

Trafford St, Harewood, but was

withdrawn days before the hearing

at the end of March.

His submission was then doubled

in size to include 2b Trafford

were slightly reduced.

It has been met with opposition

from residents and community

This included a petition with

1100 signatures and 36 individual

submissions from residents,

decide whether or not to approve

the application.

the location was unsuitable and

would attract an unwanted element.

Mr Tulloch said there were

plenty of options for buying

alcohol in the area already.

ADVERTORIAL

THE RICCARTON MARKET

IS NOT CLOSING!

During winter, as expected, the number of stall

holders and the number of people coming to the

market reduces but we still get in excess of 4,000

people coming every week. One of the strong points

about the Riccarton Market is that both entry and

parking is free to the public”.

HUNDREDS

OF STALLS

Don’t believe everything that you

hear! Despite numerous rumours

the popular Riccarton Market is

not closing.

“It is easy to understand the confusion” says Craig

Murphy, President of the Rotary Club of Riccarton.

(The Riccarton Market is owned by the Riccarton

Rotary Charitable Trust and managed by the Rotary

Club of Riccarton). “With much publicity being

given to the proposed new housing subdivision

on some of the land currently occupied by the

Riccarton Racing Club people have missed the

point that not all of the land is going to be utilised.

Over the next few years land will be progressively

developed into residential sections along Yaldhurst

Road and Steadman Road and then into other parts

of the property.

It does not however intrude into that portion of the

land currently occupied by the Riccarton market”.

Plans released by the developers, Ngai Tahu

Properties, show the proposed subdivision being

done over 6 stages which when completed will

provide approximately 600 new residential sections.

“In preparation for the development the Riccarton

Market has reduced its footprint and condensed

the number of stalls available. The Racing Club

has offered other land closer to the entrance in

exchange for land surrendered by the market.

These new areas will be incorporated into the

market over time” advises Ross Binning, Chair of

Riccarton Rotary’s Market Committee. “By reducing

the footprint now we have been able to provide

additional parking for our customers making coming

to the Riccarton Market even easier. Over the

summer months we have been getting crowds in

excess of 10,000 people every Sunday.

The Riccarton Market has been in operation for

29 years. Over that time it has moved location

several times. From its origins as a ‘car boot sale’

located at the Riccarton Mall carpark, it moved to

The Bush Inn, then outgrew sites at Riccarton High

School and then at the University, relocating to

the racecourse site more than 15 year ago. It has

become an institution in Christchurch – described

by the Christchurch City Council as ‘an icon’ for

locals and tourists alike. It is the largest charity

market in New Zealand and with room for over

300 stalls it is arguably the largest weekly market

in the country. During this period Riccarton Rotary

has donated more than $3 million to local charities

and individuals as well as supporting other national

and international projects especially at times of

emergency.

“It is disappointing that people still talk about the

Riccarton Market closing” says Craig Murphy. “In

many cases those people are directly associated

with competitive markets around the city so they

no doubt see it to their advantage by creating

uncertainty about the future of the Riccarton Market.

Be assured the Riccarton Market is here to stay. We

have a secure long term arrangement over

the Riccarton Park site and apart from some

relatively minor redesign of the footprint over

the next few years there is nothing that will

change as far as our many loyal customers

are concerned. They will be able to continue

to come for their vegetables, meats, other

food items, hardware, tools, furniture, plants,

artworks, jewellery, cat and dog needs,

clothing as well as to be entertained by the

live music and stay and have their lunch from

one of the numerous ethnic and specialised food

and refreshment stalls located around the central

‘commons’.

Mr Holstein

Thank you to everyone who attended our Open Night

on Tuesday 16 May. We trust you enjoyed your time

with us, learned more about our school, and gained

an insight into Burnside High School. I am grateful to

the 250 volunteer student guides who were proud to

showcase their school to you.

Burnside provides an excellent learning environment

and makes a positive difference to people’s lives. We

pride ourselves on being a successful school that is

highly regarded in the community for its high-quality,

values-based learning and specialist facilities. We are

a larger school with a community feel, offering a wide

range of opportunities in a safe, friendly atmosphere,

and with high standards and expectations of

ourselves and our students. Burnside High School

bases its culture on a vision of ‘personal excellence

and caring for others’. The way students and staff act,

feel and think about themselves, and about others,

is determined by our key values of being respectful,

having pride and striving to excel.

Our size and all the advantages that this brings is a

point of difference and is what makes this decile 8,

state, co-educational school special.

The six significant features that make Burnside High

School a leader of learning are:

• We are a centre for academic excellence with an

emphasis on high-quality teaching practices and

outstanding achievement.

• Our roll of around 2,500 students enables us

to provide an extensive, diverse and specialised

curriculum that caters for and challenges students of

all abilities.

• We provide an exceptionally wide range of cocurricular

opportunities (music, drama, dance, clubs

and sports) for students to enjoy, learn new skills,

take leadership roles, and achieve at a high level.

• We are a caring school where students are known

and supported as individuals in a positive, inclusive

environment.

• We value effective relationships with parents

and the wider community to improve outcomes for

students.

• We are innovative and responsive to the evolving

nature of society through continuous and rigorous

review and evaluation of our systems, practices and

procedures.

Burnside High School, in partnership with parents and

caregivers, has the proven ability to assist students

develop the skills, attributes, and attitudes to make

a success of their lives in the workplace, in the

community, and as members of supportive and loving

families. I believe in, and am proud of, Burnside High

School and feel privileged to be its principal.

BHS Stage Challenge 2017

Tragic mine disasters and depletion of fish due to

pollution and over fishing were two strong themes

portrayed by the Raw and Open Stage Challenge

teams at Burnside High School this year resulting in

first place for Raw and second place for Open.

The Raw team, comprised of Year 9 and 10 students,

gave a moving performance based on two of New

Zealand’s tragic mine disasters, Strongman and Pike

River. There was a personal connection between both

as one of the students’ great grandfather was in the

Strongman mine disaster in 1967, that killed 19 men

and another student’s brother was killed in the Pike

River mine explosion.

When we discovered the connection, we realised

we had to tell these stories and with the blessing

of the families, the team of 100 students won the

competition with a powerful and moving performance.

Open Division Second Place.

On the 15th of May the Burnside High School Sports

Leadership classes participated in a 24 hour run

to raise funds for CanTeen. This charity supports

teenagers suffering from cancer to continue to enjoy

life and everything it has to offer.

At 3:15pm on the Monday, the continuous run began

with fifty students and two teachers making up ten

teams who would pass the metaphorical baton to

keep moving around the one kilometre track for 24

hours. Many pupils had gained sponsorship per km

to help motivate them round the track - with the

aid of head torches in the darkness of the night.

However, the real motivation came in the form of all

the supporters who came and joined in, with staff,

ex-pupils and hundreds of Burnside High students

jumping on the track throughout the day. There was a

very special appearance from the principal Mr Holstein

himself, donning his running gear and showing the

students how it is done, this provided a big boost for

the weary runners.

By 3:15pm on the Tuesday, after some much needed

complimentary massage the whole team joined

together to complete one last kilometre around the

The following night the seniors performed in the Open

section of Stage Challenge. Again the team of 100

performed with passion to warn us of the dangers

of pollution and overfishing in our oceans. Clever

recycling of costumes of plastic bags and black fabric

depicting an oil spill emphasised the theme that

you can’t eat money and we need to look after our

environment now.

Both teams were student-led and the stringent

rehearsal schedules and commitment to their

teams resulted in deserved results and a greater

understanding of two significant events in New

Zealand’s history as well as an appreciation of the

risks of exploitation of our reserves.

Coach Danny Porte said it was

a “faultless kick.”

“It shows the depth we have in

said.

The win keeps CBHS at the top

They head into next weekend

“We have Blackrock College

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

Slow-cooked

beef cheek

(Serves 4 )

Beef cheeks naturally

contain a lot of collagen

which, when cooked long

and slow, converts into a

luscious rich texture. The

cheeks will be extra tender

and flavoursome if prepared

a day in advance and will

taste even better.

Ingredients

6 cups Beef stock

3 Tbsp Rice bran oil

½ cup Carrot, diced

½ cup Onion, diced

½ cup Celery, diced

3 Garlic cloves, peeled and sliced

1 Tbsp Tomato paste

2 cups Red wine

1 Bay leaf

4 sprigs Fresh thyme

1 sprig Fresh rosemary, small

1.2 kgs Beef cheeks, 1 cheek per

serve

1 tsp Salt

Directions

Heat the oven to 140 deg C.

Bring the beef stock to the

boil. Heat the oil and fry the

vegetables, garlic and tomato

paste for 10 minutes to lightly

caramelise. Turn the heat up

to high, add the red wine and

reduce by half.

Season the beef cheeks with

salt and pepper then place them

in an ovenproof casserole (or

use a slow cooker). Add in the

reduced wine and vegetables.

Add the herbs and cover with

beef stock.

Cover with a tight-fitting

lid and cook in the oven for 3

hours.

To make the glazing sauce,

strain off half the cooking juices

into a saucepan, bring this to the

boil and reduce until thick and

syrupy.

To serve, gently reheat the

cheeks in the remaining cooking

juices. When hot, carefully lift

them out and place them into

the glazing sauce. Smother with

sauce and serve with creamy

potato mash and a warm salad

of greens (I have steamed

brussels sprout leaves, peas, and

broad beans, then tossed them

with a little olive oil and sea salt

flakes).

Mu shu pork

(Serves 4 )

Ingredients

4 Chinese mushrooms, dried

(available from Asian food

stores)

5 Tbsp Vegetable oil

300g Baby lettuce leaves, thinly

sliced

3 Eggs, lightly beaten with a

pinch salt

½ cup Spring onion, sliced, cut

on an angle

2 tsp Fresh ginger, cut into

matchsticks

200g Chinese greens, cut into 5

cm lenghts

1 Tbsp Hoisin sauce

2 Tbsp Soy sauce

1 to taste Salt

1 Tbsp Rice wine, or sherry

Pork seasoning

1 Tbsp Soy sauce

1 tsp Sherry, or rice wine

½ tsp Garlic, crushed

1 tsp Cornflour

Directions

Soak the mushrooms in warm

water for 15 minutes until soft.

Cut away the stalks then thinly

slice into strips.

Mix all the pork seasoning

ingredients together, then stir

through the sliced pork.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok

until it begins to smoke. Add the

beaten eggs and slowly stir to

scramble. Remove from the wok

and reserve.

Heat the remaining oil in

a wok. Add spring onion

and ginger before adding the

seasoned pork. Quickly stir-fry

for several minutes until the

pork is just cooked.

Add mushrooms, bamboo

shoots and greens. Stir fry for

2 minutes before adding the

hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice

wine or sherry, and a pinch of

salt. Toss well before returning

eggs to the wok to reheat. Serve

immediately.

Management is open for enrolments and

students can begin studying at the end of June

or in the September intake. Teaching the core

skills and techniques of project management,

this course will allow you to contribute to the

Christchurch Intermediate

Schools

Specialists in Year 7 and Year 8 Education

OPEN NIGHTS 2017

Intermediates are exciting places for students to

begin their adventure into adolescence. In addition

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

curriculum in a stimulating, challenging and

rewarding environment, intermediates cater for many

interest groups and clubs.

Intermediate schools target the needs

of early adolescent Year 7 & 8 students

- 11-13 year olds. These two-year, coeducational

schools are in many ways ideal

environments for students to begin their

adventures into adolescence.

Early adolescence is a unique and special

time of immense physical, intellectual,

emotional and social development.

These changes create specific needs and

challenges that are significantly different

from the needs of younger children or older

adolescents.

An intermediate school can support your

Year 7 & 8 child in ways that include but are

not limited to:

• The staff are all focussed on the needs

of early adolescents and teach in these

schools because they establish strong

relationships and particularly enjoy

working with Year 7 & 8 students. They

are highly qualified, experienced and

skilled teachers of early adolescent

students, who ensure pastoral,

social and emotional needs are well

supported.

• The resources are all designed and

acquired to meet the needs of this age

It is not surprising that New Zealand and overseas

research concludes that the quality of teaching is

one of the most significant factors influencing how

well students learn at school. Given that quality

teaching occurs in most New Zealand schools

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

other factors that might make a difference for early

adolescents.

The young people at intermediates are changing

rapidly – physically, emotionally and socially.

Intermediates focus solely on this age group and

are well positioned to meet their needs. A mix

of specialist and home room teachers helps to

provide the choices, challenge, love for practical

activities and academic rigour in the students’

learning. Resourcing, both human and physical, that

is developed deliberately to meet early adolescent

student needs, helps to build self esteem, assist

students to develop and find strengths and links

learning with career aspirations. Teachers who are

focussed solely on the middle years are able to work

collaboratively to provide level-appropriate engaging

programmes that connect learning to students’ lives

and interests and provide challenge for all students

to achieve to the best of their ability.

group - age appropriate experiences,

opportunities and challenges are

planned for and provided.

• Leadership development focuses on

opportunities for students to develop

the important skills associated with leading

their peers - people their own age.

• Secure and supportive yet challenging

environments are provided to support

students to develop their independence.

• Students thrive on the opportunity to

step up.

• Specialist teaching opportunities enable

students to receive age appropriate

and challenging learning in technology,

science, performing arts and visual arts.

• Significant home group environments

support strong literacy and numeracy

programmes differentiated in creative

ways to meet students’ individual

needs - all students are extended and

the focus is on accelerating progress.

The intermediate schools in Christchurch

work closely together to collectively provide

a wide range of extracurricular opportunities

for students in sporting, cultural and

academic contexts.

Current intermediate school students list these

points:

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

because our school takes all the year sixes from a

few different schools and they come to one school.

And because we’ve got bigger numbers of pupils

we can have more sports teams and … there’s

something for everyone” Y8 child

2. “Our school has different specialist teachers for

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

get used to that – which is good preparation for

secondary school” Y7 girl

3. “At intermediate school everything is for our two

years (age group).” Y8 girl

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

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

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

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

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

and then we’ll be big too. Y8 boy

Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi

NOR’WEST NEWS

Parents of Year 6 students are

encouraged to take a good

look at their child’s full primary

school when choosing

schooling for 2018.

Why change schools when you don’t

need to? Full Primary schools are

tried and tested and have developed

in innovative and cost effective ways

since their inception in 1877. They

are as important to the provision of

education in 2018 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful?

• They have evolved over time and have responded to the

different demographic changes since 1877.

• They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for

families and respond to community needs.

• They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know

curriculum levels from Level 1 – 5 who have had the

same teacher training as teachers in other Year 7 and 8

school types.

• Teachers in the student’s current full primary school

know about individual students learning progress and

learning style from Year 1 – 8.

• Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture,

innovation and child centred learning sum up full primary

schools.

• Year 7 and 8 students are the leaders and role models

along with the adults in a full primary school with

opportunities to nurture Year 1 – 6 students.

• School organisation in a full primary school fits the

needs of students not the timetable.

• All Year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership

opportunities, sporting opportunities, school community

job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model

expectations. They are seen by others in the school as

the leaders and younger students look up to them.

• These opportunities and strategies to build leadership,

key competencies and resilience are available to all Year

7 and 8 students in a full primary.

What does the research tell

us about the learning needs

of Year 7 and 8 students?

• Curriculum that is relevant, challenging,

integrative, and exploratory

• Multiple learning and teaching

approaches

• Assessment and evaluation programmes

that promote quality learning

• Organisational structures that support

meaningful relationships and learning

• Educators who value working with the

age group

• Courageous, collaborative leadership

• School-wide efforts and policies that

foster health, wellness, and safety

• Multifaceted guidance and support

services

• School-initiated family and community

partnerships

Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school

type or school buildings that make the difference for Year

7 and 8 students. It is instead the innovative approach to

learning and the attitude of professionals toward this group of

students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the

leadership, teachers and non-teaching staff are committed

to the social and emotional development of this group of

learners. Full Primary Schools are providers of Year 7 and 8

education in every way that other types of schools are.

“Encouraging life-long learners. Expanding Horizons”

Our school offers…

And also

The research also provides insight into

what works for Year 7 and 8 students:

Ministry of Education by Dinham and Rowe

of the Australian Council for Educational

Research. 2007

• From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’,

there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching

which students receive at all levels and stages of

schooling is of major importance in influencing

achievement outcomes for students.

• While productive and positive student-teacher

relationships are identified as an important

characteristic of highly performing schools

catering for middle years’ students, it needs to be

acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders

at all levels of schooling is what works.

• It is therefore debateable whether at least some

aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle

schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and

effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling

approaches focusing on quality teaching and

enhanced learning’ rather than on school type.

Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to

support learning and what happens across the school

to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive,

physical, emotional and social needs of Year 7 and 8

that makes the difference. Not school type.

The research on middle schooling and its implications

to provide quality education to Year 7 and 8 students

is as applicable to full primary school as it is for other

schooling types.

Returning to work, but

If you watched What Next? on TV One

is being impacted by emerging technologies.

Tech roles exist in nearly all industries

growth in the already significant tech sector

in Canterbury is predicted by the Canterbury

Development Corporation.

To fuel this growth, we need more trained

tech people. SIGNAL is working with

SECONDARY SCHOOL SELECTION

A bright future at Shirley and Avonside

With a brand new state-of-the-art

campus on their horizon and a host of

new opportunities to offer students, it

is a great time to enrol at Shirley Boys’

High School and Avonside Girls’ High

School.

The two schools will relocate to their

new site, at QEII Park, in time for Term

2 of 2019, so students who enrol for next

year will be at the new schools in their

second year of high school.

Being able to start from scratch has

enabled the architects to create the

‘ultimate campus’. It features a large

Performing Arts Centre (with a 750-seat

and a 100-seat theatre), three full-sized

gyms (complete with climbing wall), a

cultural space and four sportsfields.

Each school will also have a long list

of its own specialist learning facilities,

including:

• Electronics Lab

• Recording Studios

• Editing Suites

• 2D and 3D Printing Room

• 6 Science Labs

• An Indoor Fitness Centre

Avonside Girls’ principal Sue Hume

says the students will spend most of

their day in a single sex environment.

“That’s important to us. The research

clearly shows that single sex education

benefits both girls and boys...boys do

better academically and girls participate

more when they have space to learn and

focus away from the opposite gender,”

says Sue Hume.

Shirley Boys’ High School headmaster

Avonside Girls’ principal Sue Hume

and Shirley Boys’ High School

headmaster John Laurenson

John Laurenson says being co-located

will enable both schools to offer their

students more.

“We’ll be able to work together to

deliver more specialist subjects so we

can widen our curriculum and we will

be able to co-operate on things like

school productions. Obviously there

will be lots of social and educational

advantages to this.”

A large bus network is being created

to help make travelling to and from the

campus easy, and the schools are also

working with local authorities to create

safe cycling and walking routes to the

site.

While the new zone hasn’t been

finalised yet, the schools’ intake for next

year will be based on their current zones.

That is good news for any families

considering out-of-zone enrolments.

Much of the school’s existing zones now

sit in the residential red zone so there is

plenty of space.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

New hope for patients

suffering from MS,

strokes or spinal injuries

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.

Special offer for JUlY - if you have

suffered a stroke, spinal injury or have

MS, then this article is for you.

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.

Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant

improvement for muscle weakness and numbness

caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke

and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan

reflexology to see lots of instant results videos.

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 10 patients of stroke, 10

patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury

half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168,
