Speed sign battle looms

after council orders removal

• By Julia Evans

A ST Albans parent is refusing

to take down a sign pleading

for motorists to slow down after

being ordered to by the city

council.

Rachel Donaldson, whose

children go to St Albans School,

paid for the sign that reads “St

Albans children matter, slow

down” and put it on the fence

of 85 Westminster St with the

permission of the homeowner,

her sister Diane Donaldson.

But the city council has ordered

its removal after receiving

a complaint.

It said the sign “does not comply

with the District Plan.”

Neither Rachel nor Diane

Donaldson have any idea what

not complying with the district

plan could mean and remain

adamant the sign will stay on the

fence.

Diane Donaldson said she has

no intention of taking it down.

She would consider painting

the sign directly onto the fence

– although that would be an

extreme measure.

“It’s on our property. What’s

the difference between me having

a sign on my fence and me

painting it on my fence?”

Said Rachel Donaldson: “It’s

really disappointing. I wouldn’t

have thought the sign was so

offensive that it would’ve caused

someone to complain, especially

with the political billboards, real

estate agents and signs to quit

smoking all over the place.”

Rachel Donaldson has been at

the helm of a campaign to bring

attention to dangerous driving

and red light running in the area.

She has put up four other signs

in the area, none of which have

to be taken down.

Innes Ward city councillor

Pauline Cotter said she is

“extremely disappointed” that

the city council has ordered its

removal. She was not aware of

it until contacted by Nor’West

News.

“The signs are brilliant, they

bring attention to the problem,

which the profile has been raised

by the community,” she said.

She said the Papanui-Innes

Community Board is working

on a plan to address the

wider issue in preparation for

an increase in motorists when

the Northern Arterial work is

complete.

Until then she didn’t see a

reason the sign should go.

The city council won’t comment

on the matter.

“As this matter is currently

under investigation, no further

comment can be made at this

time,” adviser of regulatory

compliance Claire Le Grice

said.

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News................................3, 5, 6

AN INTERESTING battle

looms over the sign in St Albans

warning motorists to slow down.

On page 1 today, we reveal

a Wesminister St resident has

been ordered by the city council

to take down the sign because it

doesn’t comply with the District

Plan.

She has put it up on behalf of

her sister, Rachel Donaldson,

who is a parent at St Albans

School. Rachel has been at the

helm of a campaign to bring attention

to dangerous driving and

red light running in the area.

But this sign doesn’t comply so

city hall is wielding the big stick.

Rachel and her sister Diane

have no intention of taking it

down so the scene is set for a

good fight.

On another traffic matter,

Shirley Primary School has come

up trumps. See page 3.

Pupil safety problems addressed

• By Julia Evans

SHIRLEY PRIMARY has

applauded moves to make

crossing the road outside the

school safer for pupils.

Motorists running red lights

on a signalised pedestrian crossing

Shirley Rd have posed a

major threat to pupils.

The school

complained to

both the city

council and

Papanui-Innes

Community

Board, which

Sandra

Jamieson

has resulted in

action.

The city council

has changed

the phasing of the lights. The red

light has been phased for three

seconds longer before the green

crossing signal appears, which

gives drivers longer to come to

a stop before children cross the

road.

Said acting principal Sandra

Jamieson: “It’s great to see how

that gap makes such a big difference.”

There were also adjustments

made to parking outside the

school but that was too new to

see results yet, she said.

Problems were addressed after

CROSSING: Red light runners at this signalised crossing on Shirley Rd were causing concern

for pupil safety.

school staff and parents brought

the issue to the attention of the

city council and police.

A meeting was held in June

with members from the Papanui-Innes

Community Board,

city council staff, police, as well

as members of Shirley Primary’s

staff and parents.

Mrs Jamieson said there was a

review meeting scheduled in the

next few weeks for the people

Elmwood

who got together the first time to

talk about the changes.

Community board chairwoman

Ali Jones said there had

also been great feedback from

parents and the school.

In Brief

BELFAST RIVER REVIVAL

Plans to restore the Otukaikino

River Reserve in Belfast will get

under way this month. The work

will include the restoration of native

habitat in the area. A planting day

is planned for August 27 from

10.30am. The restoration will be an

ongoing partnership between the

community, Trees for Canterbury,

the city council, and The Isaac

Conservation and Wildlife Trust.

YOUTH TRUST FUNDING

Pupils and students from Shirley

Intermediate School and Mairehau

High School will benefit from the

Papanui-Innes Community Board’s

decision to approve a grant of $6000

towards the Crossroads Youth with

a Future Trust’s salary costs. This

will allow the trust to deliver its

Stay Real programme at the two

schools in 2017 and 2018. Stay Real

aims to support changes in a young

person’s life and help them take

responsibility for their behaviour.

ADDRESSING SOCIAL ISSUES

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has written to the Ministry

of Education and Ministry of Social

Development asking for more

funding for programmes such as

social workers in the community.

The board has seen an increase in

demand for this kind of support

after the earthquakes.

Your Local Views

Readers respond to the

article about the Papanui-

Innes Community Board’s

submission opposing

a third lane across the

Waimakariri River

Joseph Adams – Wherever

a new or upgraded motorway

is constructed it may assist flow

traffic flow somewhat better but

always creates a bottleneck at

some other point.

It is for this reason I think that

light rail should be tried and

tested for a reasonable time at

least. Our existing rail corridors

do not share the track with other

forms of transport and are therefore

a fast and independent way

to get from point A to B.

Many people, including planners,

refer to a transportation

mode as “getting to a city”

whereas I believe it would be

better to adopt the mindset “getting

through a city”, for example

Amberley, Sefton or Rangiora to

Rolleston, Burnham or Darfield

via the city.

While this may be a “no-brainer”

one also has to consider the

influence works and cartage contractors

have in these decisions

not to mention those involved in

the sales of fuel, tyres and other

associated motoring products.

When one thinks about this the

list suddenly grows.

Ben Venzy Venz – What

on earth is a third lane going to

do? The problem is there’s not

enough room where the double

lanes end and it bottlenecks by

adding another lane is just going

to make more congestion.

Pamela Neil – Papanui Rd

is a choked mess most of the

time. It needs a flyover all the

way from Victoria St through

to the north road as there is no

where to go to widen it. Imagine

the whinging with that idea.

Carol Campbell – They

should be looking into another

bridge further west to get all the

traffic like Rangiora and Oxford

away from the main motorway.

Rex Livingstone – An

extra lane on the bridge would

certainly help my family who

come from Cust to the city.

A normal 30 or 40min drive,

becomes a 90min trial each

morning. It will not bring more

traffic in, but just help those who

are coming now.

Celebrating Rangi’s past

Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School

principal

Sandra Hastie

writes about

tradition and

history in the

present and

future of schooling

IN 1889, Charlie Chaplin was

born, the Eiffel Tower opened

and even though it was still four

years before women won the

right to vote in New Zealand,

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School came

into being, in Christchurch.

Every year we celebrate Founders’

Day on August 2, the date

when the vision of a group of

women was realised; a vision

to give girls opportunities that,

until then, were not readily available

to them.

Rangi was founded by Miss

Helen Gibson, after her father,

Captain Frederick Gibson, built

a large house with two schoolrooms

on the corner of Webb St.

It was administered by her and

her sisters Mary, Beatrice, Alice,

Lucy, Ethel, Ruth and Winifred

for nearly 60 years.

It was made very clear by the

sisters that the focus of the school

was not to turn the students into

young ladies, who would become

stay-at-home-mothers, but

rather strong young women with

intellect, strength and their own

viewpoints.

The Gibson sisters were indeed

ahead of their time. These years

identify the first stirrings of the

‘Independent Woman’.

Removed from the traditions

of “home,” girls began to demand

the privileges of their brothers.

They wanted equal opportunities;

they wanted university

education; they wanted the vote.

They achieved all of these

things before their sisters in

Britain, and frequently against

the advice and opinions of their

parents. They could see that the

liberating force was education.

The Gibson sisters all helped

Discover this

unique Emporium

NOR’WEST NEWS

in some way with the running of

the school, in fact they all continued

with their studies to train

to become qualified as teachers

and in doing so, demonstrated

the importance of knowledge in

leadership.

Looking through the history

of the school, it’s very clear that

Rangi wasn’t just about academics,

sports, music; the arts and

fun also featured which for that

time in history and for young

women, shows it was indeed

ahead of its time.

I am sure that if the Gibson

sisters were alive today, they

would be proud of what has been

achieved and we all know that

there is still plenty to do.

We are stronger for knowing

and celebrating our past. Where

we have come is an important

part of where we are going, and

Founder’s Day is a wonderful

way to weave the threads of

tradition and history into the

strong and colourful fabric of our

school community.

Evie’s historical connection to school

• By Julia Evans

GENERATIONS: Evie Laidlaw with her father Robert and

grandfather John – all descendants of the Gibson family, who

founded Rangi Ruru Girls’ School.

EVIE LAIDLAW is 12 and she

doesn’t know a world without

mobile phones, Facebook and the

internet.

But Evie is part of a legacy that

dates back to when her school,

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School, opened

in 1890.

Through her father Robert

Laidlaw and grandfather John

Laidlaw, Evie is a direct descendant

of the Gibson family who

opened Rangi Ruru in 1890.

The school celebrated Founder’s

Day on Wednesday.

Three generations of the

Laidlaw family were at the school

to mark the occasion and Evie

was asked to light a candle during

the service.

“It was a really special service

for Evie,” said Robert Laidlaw.

Captain Frederick Gibson built

the school and his daughters

Helen, Mary, Beatrice, Alice,

Lucy, Ethel, Ruth and Winifred

ran the school for nearly 60 years.

The Gibson sisters were Evie’s

grandfather’s great aunts.

But just about every woman on

both sides of Evie’s family have

worn the Rangi Ruru uniform as

students at the school, including

her mother Lucy, both grandmothers

and a myriad of aunts.

Her grandfather married his

wife Judy in St Andrew’s Church,

which is now on the school’s

grounds, in 1965.

Robert Laidlaw said the family

connection comes out through

the family tree and is reflected in

their family values.

“The school really reflects our

family traditions and values, so

it’s really good to see Evie going

there,” he said.

At 12, this is Evie’s first year at

the school. Until now she hasn’t

understood the importance of

the family’s historic connection.

“I think she’s just starting to realise

the importance of the school

to the family and she’s making

the most of it,” he said.

The family pulled out all the

stops to get her there.

“We were fortunate enough to

have the opportunity to send her

to the school and she knows it’s a

privilege,” he said.

The entire family is very proud,

especially grandfather John who

is thrilled his granddaughter will

be carrying on the traditions of

the past.

Short-term

safety

solution for

Chaneys

• By Julia Evans

THE UPGRADE of Chaneys

Corner will see temporary safety

measure put in place while longterm

signalisation is finalised.

The city council said until the

permanent plans are set in stone,

“short-term safety improvements”

will be used at the Main North,

Marshland and Spencerville Rd

motorway junction.

The city council will have to

take into consideration changes

in traffic flow as a result of the

Northern Corridor work.

It would also take into consideration

other possible developments

in the area.

The budget for the project is

just over $1 million and less than

two per cent has so far been spent

on the investigations so far, city

council head of transport Chris

Gregory said.

The final plan will go out to the

public for consultation in September

or October.

Mr Gregory said it was at this

time that more information would

become available.

final.

Bands from across the

country competed in regional

competitions from May to early

July. The regional finalists then

made 12min videos performing

their original music.

Those videos were judged by a

panel made up of New Zealand

musicians. Judge and Silver

Scroll award-winner, Thomas

Oliver, said the music was

unique this year.

“It’s so good to see some really

strong writers ready to make

their way into the New Zealand

music industry.”

The final, where 12 acts will

compete for the title, will be held

Volleyballer off to US

St Bede’s final

• By Andrew King

THREE YEARS ago Tasmyn

Fahey hadn’t stepped foot

on a volleyball court, but on

Thursday she left for Casper,

Wyoming, in the United States

to start a two-year scholarship

playing the sport she now loves.

The 19-year-old former

Burnside High student will play

for Casper College after being

accepted earlier this year.

But she didn’t always have the

same love for the sport that she

now has.

It took a persistent coach

who eventually tricked her into

attending a training session to

get her interested.

“I have always been tall

and coach Sam Ryburn really

wanted me to give it a go. I

wasn’t interested, but he got

some of my friends to trick me

into coming to training and,

from there, I haven’t looked

back,” Fahey said.

The scholarship pays for

everything, including food,

accommodation and education.

“I am just so excited to play

volleyball over there. I didn’t

think I would reach this level.

I want to travel, play volleyball

and get educated, and this

allows me to do all three. It is

amazing,” she said.

Ryburn said it was a huge

opportunity for Fahey to get

into the top level of one of the

biggest sports in the world.

“The junior colleges give

you really great exposure

and I know she will take

every opportunity thrown

at her,” he said. She follows

other former Burnside High

volleyballers, Nicky Pio and

Petra Manderson, who are both

at junior colleges in Florida.

While Fahey has never been

to the US, she does have an

American connection.

Her father was born in

Pennsylvania before being

adopted by a Kiwi family. Her

SPORTS

mum is from Greymouth.

“I am really interested to

learn more about the African-

American culture, which I will

be able to do at college,” she

said.

On top of the study and sport,

Fahey said she is really keen to

experience all her new home

state has to offer.

“I am really keen to see

Yellowstone Park and, even

though I haven’t done much

skiing there, I will give it a go,”

she laughed.

shot at playoffs

• By Andrew King

ST BEDE’S College have a

chance of making a late bid for

a playoff spot if they can beat

Middleton Grange tomorrow

night and other results go their

way.

St Bede’s sit in fifth position on

the Connetics first XI football

competition table but could

jump into fourth.

However, they would have

to rely on bottom of the table

Rangiora High getting past

fourth placed Cashmere High,

or third placed Burnside High

losing to ninth placed Riccarton

High.

If St Andrew’s College losses

to Christ’s College at 5.45pm, it

could allow St Bede’s to move

into the top four.

However, a draw would keep

St Andrew’s safe from dropping

out.

Rangiora have only won one

game this year and have had

73 goals scored against them,

while Burnside have retained the

Connetics Shield since round

nine.

St Andrew’s are currently

sitting second after beating

Middleton 2-0 last week.

St Bede’s beat Rangiora last

week 5-2 and are now focused on

putting in a good performance

against Middleton at 5.45pm

at the Christchurch Football

Centre, where all league games

are played this year.

Burnside will not want to let

the shield go or drop out of the

top four in the final round. They

take on Riccarton at 4pm.

At 7.30pm, Christchurch Boys’

High will be looking to finish

with a win against top of the

table St Thomas, as will Papanui

High when they take on Shirley

Boys’ High.

Hydrate to elevate

We all know drinking water is important, but the

majority of us simply don’t drink enough even

though we know it makes us feel great when we

do. We look at the benefits and motivate you to

drink more with a few tips on how to make it just

a little more palatable.

With over a quarter of Kiwis consuming

less than two glasses of water a day

and only 5% drinking more than the

recommended eight, the message

obviously hasn’t hit home on the

importance of hydrating our body.

A recent survey conducted by

SodaStream found that Cantabrians are

particularly guilty when it comes to their

water intake.

With 82% drinking less than six

glasses of water a day, but with over 85%

admitting they feel healthier when they

drink more water, something needs to

be done to bridge the gap in terms of

what we know to be true and what we’re

actually doing about it.

This same survey revealed that although

41% of us limit how many soft drinks we

consume due to our concerns over sugar

content, the same number of people said

tea or coffee is their number one drink of

choice.

Some people even believe that the water

consumed in their cup of Joe constitutes

part of their water intake. This is a fallacy.

As caffeine actually dehydrates us, as

does alcohol too, it means we need to

drink even more water to compensate.

Not so surprisingly the reason we don’t

drink nearly enough water is that we

simply forget. Now with apps you can

download direct to your smart phone,

there are no more excuses.

Further studies proved that people

who had a SodaStream machine in their

homes were more likely to drink more

water.

In fact, the study showed that people

drank 30% more water.

For those of us who aren’t used

to drinking water like it’s going

out of fashion, there are plenty of ways

to increase the fun factor while still

being healthy.

After

Before

By simply turning tap water into sparkling water with a

SodaStream machine and adding a splash of fresh lemon

juice or naturally squeezed fruit juice, is bound to have a

positive impact on our health and wellbeing.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

BAKED PEARS WITH

VANILLA AND BAY LEAF

SYRUP

Ingredients

4 Pears, packham

4 sheets Puff pastry

2 Tbsp Milk

1 Egg

Syrup

1 Vanilla bean

2 Bay leaves

¾ cup Caster sugar

½ cup White wine

½ cup Water

1 Tbsp to serve Cream

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.

Line a baking tray with baking

paper.

Peel the pears, leaving on the

stalks, then slice a sliver off the

bottom of each so they sit flat.

Lay one sheet of pastry on

a lightly floured bench. Sit a

pear in the centre and bring the

pastry up around the pear.

Trim the excess, then seal to

ensure the pear is completely

enclosed. Use the excess to make

leaf shapes and press onto the

pastry. Whisk the egg and milk

together then brush all over the

pears.

Bake for approximately 25min

or until golden.

Meanwhile, make the syrup by

putting all the ingredients into

a saucepan and then bring to a

boil.

Stir then let it reduce – this

should take approximately

20min.

Serve the pears hot with the

syrup poured over and softly

whipped cream on the

side.

VENISON STEAKS WITH

KUMARA AND PARSNIP

BAKE

Ingredients

50g Butter

500g Orange kumara, peeled

500g Parsnips, peeled

2 cloves Garlic, cut into slivers

1 Tbsp Fresh thyme

1 cup Chicken stock, or vegetable

stock, use more if needed

4 Venison, steaks

6 stems Silverbeet, roughly

chopped

1 Tbsp to serve Fruit chutney

Directions

Heat the oven to 190 deg

C. Use half of the measured

butter to grease a medium-sized

ovenproof baking dish.

Cut kumara and parsnip into

3mm thick slices (a mandolin is

useful here).

Layer kumara and parsnip

slices with the garlic, thyme and

remaining butter into the baking

dish finishing with kumara slices.

Carefully pour in the stock and

season.

Cover with baking paper and

foil, place in the oven and bake

for 25min. Remove paper and

foil and bake for a further 25min

until kumara and parsnip are

tender. Heat a large frying pan

over a high heat. Rub venison

steaks with olive oil and season

with freshly ground black

pepper. Place in the hot pan

and pan-fry for 6min, turning

once for medium-rare venison.

Transfer to a warmed plate, cover

loosely with foil then a clean tea

towel and leave to rest for 5min.

Meanwhile, steam silverbeet

until tender, or boil in a little

lightly salted water.

Cut kumara and parsnip bake

into squares and place one on

each of four warmed dinner

plates. Divide silverbeet between

plates and top with a venison

steak. Finish with a good dollop

of chutney.

month’s book talk is Frankie McMillan. She will talk about the process of turning

memoir into fiction using her latest book, My Mother and the Hungarians and

other small fictions, as an example. The talk will touch on what transformations

are needed to establish the work as fiction, the unreliability of memory and

the role of research. Some characteristics of the flash fiction genre will also

SCHOOL OPTIONS - early & middle years 2018

Welcome to Casebrook

Intermediate School

Cathedral Grammar

The ideal preparation

Cathedral Grammar is a pre-school

and school with a rich 136 year history

delivering high quality education in the

centre of our city. It is a school with a

strong, Anglican ethos and spiritual heart

that uniquely maximises the benefits of coeducational

and separate gender education

in the one school environment. While the

world has changed beyond the imagining

of our pioneers, the forward-looking

principles of Cathedral Grammar remain

as relevant today as they have ever been:

to provide an exceptional personalised

education that empowers our pupils to lead

successful and fulfilling lives.

Our Board has set a future focussed

strategy and we are currently in the

exciting phase of developing plans to

ensure we anchor a forwardlooking

education within the

illustrious history of the oldest

established independent

primary school in New

Zealand. Our forwardthinking

attitude is clearly

displayed with our fantastic

and unique new playground

on top of the roof of our

multi-award winning Junior

School building. Pippin

Wright-Stow of F3 Design

has created an original and

exciting structure to climb in

and through, which reflects

the shape and form of our

majestic Southern Alps. This is a great

addition to the existing slide off the same

roof space.

In this knowledge era, original thought

is important to us here at Cathedral

Grammar. This requires the ability to

think beyond, to adapt, to change and to

innovate. Our strong academic traditions

are important to us, and so too is every

pupil reaching their full potential, building

their self-confidence and making friends

for life. Our challenge is to find the perfect

balance as we prepare our pupils for life.

Every pupil. Every day.

Come and see what the buzz is about and

what we will provide your child and family.

We look forward to hosting you at our

Open day, or any time that best suits you.

Year 7 & 8 students are a

unique age group that we

specialise in educating. Our

staff and school resources

are all geared for this stage

of personal development

and focus on providing as

a diverse range of learning

opportunities to create a wellrounded

individual.

Our learning environment

is supported by a strong

focus on our school values

of Respect (Whakaute),

Excellence (Panekiretanga)

and Perseverance (Hiringa). Through

these ‘REP’ values we develop within each

student a sense of self worth to realise their

importance as a member of our Casebrook

community.

Our school environment is one where

students are safe and have the confidence

to take risks with their learning. In

this way the students at Casebrook are

supported and encouraged to become selfmotived,

independent learners.

We value the partnership between home

and school. Together we can create an

environment where we foster feelings of

pride and belonging. We are sure you will

enjoy being a part of our community and

I would welcome the opportunity to meet

with you to discuss your child’s future at

Casebrook.

DND SHOWBAND returns to the Hornby Club

next Saturday 19th August, and by popular

request will include their ABBA tribute set in the

programme!

Christchurch based DnD Showband has been

delighting audiences across the country with

their multi-tribute theme shows for an incredible

ten years. Despite earthquakes, tsunami warnings,

wild fires, and floods they continue to travel the

country - although it may take them a little

longer than in earlier days to reach their

destination! Coming months sees them with

show performances in Blenheim, Hawera,

Waikanae, Levin, Porirua, Ashburton, and

Timaru. Check out their website

www.dndshowband.com for show details.

“We’re rather proud that we get repeat

bookings around the country. The North Island

especially has a huge pool of amazing talent at its

disposal. It’s flattering that an act from

Christchurch is so well received,” said Jo Davern,

DnD manager.

In rehearsal mode for next Saturday’s show at

the Hornby Club, the 6 piece live band has been

busy fine tuning show content, sorting costumes

and tightening up moves.

“It’s not just all about ABBA, we’ve put together

a great play list guaranteed to get everyone up

dancing. And for those who prefer to listen and

watch, our professional tech’s Peter and Amanda

will be out front running our sound and light

systems to ensure it sounds and looks wonderful,”

said Jo.

DnD Showband present ‘Dance the Night

Away’ with feature set ABBA at the Hornby Club

on Saturday 19th August. 8pm start Doors open

at 6.30pm. Tickets $20 on sale now at the Hornby

Club, 17 Carmen Rd, phone 03 349 9026. Door
