BEAUTIFYING: Artist Maxine Burney turning a Chorus communication box into a work of art.<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A CHORUS communication box<br />

has become the latest canvas for<br />

a Bishopdale artist.<br />

Armed with a paintbrush,<br />

palette and bright paint Maxine<br />

Burney has turned the boring<br />

green power box into the talking<br />

point of Staines St.<br />

Mrs Burney came up with the<br />

idea after the box, outside her<br />

neighbour’s house, was tagged<br />

and the graffiti wasn’t removed.<br />

“I asked Chorus for approval<br />

to paint the box and sent them a<br />

plan, it took a couple of months<br />

but they finally agreed,” she said.<br />

Although since she was<br />

formally commissioned by the<br />

power company, Burney said<br />

plead with<br />

to change<br />

Cranford St<br />

plans<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

BUSINESSES ON Cranford St<br />

are pleading with the city council<br />

to change the Northern Arterial<br />

designs or they will have to shut<br />

up shop.<br />

“I’ve told them they’ll have to<br />

buy our business . . . we’ll have to<br />

shut our doors, that’s where it’s<br />

heading,” said Keith Wayman,<br />

who owns Small World Preschool<br />

and Nursery with his wife Sue.<br />

The upgrade will see Cranford St<br />

widened to four lanes.<br />

Mr Wayman says businesses on<br />

the street will struggle if the city<br />

council removes car parking and<br />

does not include U-turning bays.<br />

Mr Wayman has worked with<br />

the city council to include U-<br />

turning bays to maintain access<br />

to businesses along the stretch<br />

between McFaddens Rd and the<br />

rural zone. “We just wanted turning<br />

bays down the end,” he said.<br />

City council manager planning<br />

and delivery transport Lynette<br />

Ellis said the city council is still<br />

working on the final design.<br />

“The design team is currently<br />

engaging with affected stakeholders<br />

and the final design is yet to<br />

be confirmed,” she said.<br />

Bid to fix Mairehau’s crash corner<br />

Residents fear<br />

next smash<br />

will be fatal<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

RESIDENTS ON a Mairehau<br />

street believe it’s only a matter of<br />

time before a child is seriously<br />

hurt following a number of<br />

crashes at one of its corners.<br />

Residents between 59 and 65<br />

Glenfield Cres have seen plenty<br />

of people misjudge the corner<br />

outside their homes. The latest<br />

incident put a man in hospital<br />

with serious injuries after he hit<br />

a parked vehicle in a driveway on<br />

<strong>September</strong> 13.<br />

He had to be cut from the<br />

vehicle by firefighters and<br />

resident Dave Parson’s work<br />

vehicle was badly damaged.<br />

Bob Autridge, who has lived<br />

on the street for the past 16<br />

years, said something needs to<br />

be done.<br />

“We need a bloody great big<br />

sign and some speed bumps put<br />

in,” he said. “It is only a matter<br />

of time before some kid on the<br />

footpath gets it.”<br />

City council transport<br />

operations manager Aaron<br />

Haymes said a report on the<br />

FED UP: Glenfield Cres residents Neville Amor (left) and Bob<br />

Autridge have seen numerous crashes on the corner outside<br />

their properties.<br />

PHOTOS: ANDREW KING<br />

latest crash had been received<br />

from a resident. City council<br />

staff are investigating some “lowcost<br />

interventions to make the<br />

bends more conspicuous”.<br />

Installing two speed bumps<br />

would cost about $50,000 but Mr<br />

Haymes said, at the present time,<br />

traffic calming initiatives were<br />

not a high-priority and funding<br />

was not available for these types<br />

of schemes.<br />

Mr Autridge asked the<br />

Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board last year to paint yellow<br />

lines around the corner to<br />

improve visibility, which they<br />

did in January.<br />

Residents say the lines were a<br />

good start, but more needs to be<br />

done.<br />

In June, a woman failed to take<br />

the corner and ended up on the<br />

front lawn of the property next<br />

‘It is only a matter of<br />

time before some kid on<br />

the footpath gets it’<br />

– Bob Autridge<br />

BAD CORNER: A vehicle<br />

hit the kerb on <strong>September</strong><br />

13 and smashed into Dave<br />

Parson’s vehicle on his<br />

driveway.<br />

door to resident Neville Amor’s<br />

house.<br />

Before that crash, he said<br />

another person had actually hit<br />

the power pole.<br />

In 2012, two men in a “soupedup<br />

Subaru” came around the<br />

corner and smashed into a<br />

container on Mr Amor’s front<br />

lawn.<br />

“They moved the container<br />

about 20cm, so they must have<br />

hit it quite hard,” he said.<br />

In Brief<br />

TURF UPGRADES<br />

Westminster Park turf is set to be<br />

upgraded by the city council. But<br />

first it is working on the drainage in<br />

the park as part of a city-wide flood<br />

remediation effort. The city council<br />

said the work will need to be<br />

prioritised ahead of any sports field<br />

renewal. •St Albans Park delays,<br />

Testimonials:<br />

Doug Garlick<br />

of Westport has been a<br />

client of Greg's since the<br />

late 1990's. Doug's<br />

hearing loss is mainly<br />

work related and has<br />

been deteriorating over<br />

the years. "I have tried<br />

many hearing aids over<br />

the years but I am totally<br />

sold on my present<br />

hearing aids. They are the<br />

best yet and you hardly<br />

know you are wearing<br />

them. I hear sounds I<br />

have not heard for many<br />

years" says Doug. Doug<br />

found the service<br />

"fantastic" and "the whole<br />

process and follow-ups<br />

were excellent, friendly,<br />

and informative."<br />

Les Singer of Hokitika is<br />

another very satisfied<br />

client since 1995. Les lost<br />

his hearing many years<br />

ago and has worn a<br />

number of hearing aids<br />

over the years with each<br />

model better than the<br />

previous one. Wearing<br />

hearing aids helps Les<br />

communicate and<br />

understand<br />

conversations, particularly<br />

with his wife, family, and<br />

grandchildren. Hearing<br />

aids has improved quality<br />

of life and reduced stress<br />

for all concerned. Les is<br />

very happy with the<br />

excellent service provided<br />

Clinic.

Traffic danger for children<br />

St Albans<br />

resident<br />

and mother<br />

Rachel<br />

Donaldson<br />

writes about<br />

the danger<br />

traffic in the<br />

suburb is putting children in<br />

FOR THE last five years I have<br />

walked my children to and from<br />

school but I never meant to<br />

continue escorting them.<br />

After a certain age, once they<br />

were clear on stopping, looking and<br />

listening, I felt confident that like<br />

my own childhood, I would just<br />

say goodbye to them at the door<br />

and they would go without me.<br />

The busiest road that they have<br />

to cross is considered the “gold<br />

standard” of intersections.<br />

It is a signal operated intersection<br />

at the junction of Cranford<br />

and Berwick Sts in St Albans. The<br />

green man tells you when to cross<br />

accompanied by a loud buzzer.<br />

We all know them.<br />

However, for the last five years<br />

I have watched cars run the<br />

red lights with a frequency that<br />

increases every week.<br />

Some days cars will drive<br />

through the red light at this<br />

intersection at every single light<br />

change.<br />

In the last six months, I have<br />

seen a child clipped by the wing<br />

mirror of a car that crossed<br />

through the intersection while<br />

the green man was going and this<br />

was the tipping point.<br />

My road safety advice to my<br />

children has changed from “waiting<br />

for the green man” to “even<br />

when the green man flashes up<br />

and the buzzer is going, always<br />

double check that someone isn’t<br />

going to come through anyway<br />

and stand back against the fence<br />

while waiting to cross due the<br />

phenomenal speed that cars are<br />

travelling at.”<br />

I have no confidence that drivers<br />

will obey the road rules when<br />

they see schoolchildren crossing<br />

at an intersection where there is a<br />

very clear stop/go signal.<br />

Instead, I have taught my children<br />

to be the second-guessers, to<br />

be the defensive pedestrians, not<br />

to expect that an adult driving<br />

a car will have more road sense<br />

than them, a seven and a nineyear-old.<br />

This selfish driving behaviour<br />

led to my getting signs made and<br />

put up – not only at the Cranford<br />

and Berwick Sts intersection but<br />

at the other major intersection<br />

that is used by St Albans School<br />

children, the Cranford and Westminster<br />

Sts intersection.<br />

This crossing not only meets<br />

the “gold standard” of intersections<br />

but St Albans School, for<br />

the last eight years, has paid<br />

(from their own, extremely<br />

limited education budget) a lady<br />

to monitor and guide children<br />

through the intersection due to<br />

the sheer number of red lightrunners<br />

that drive this section of<br />

road every single day.<br />

And still St Albans residents<br />

and school parents wait for the<br />

city council that moves at glacial<br />

speed to do something about the<br />

lack of signage along Cranford St<br />

to let drivers know that over 600<br />

children go to St Albans school<br />

and use this road to get home<br />

every day.<br />

That in our suburb there are<br />

almost 1000 children on the<br />

move.<br />

As I watch the Northern Corridor<br />

inching closer and closer to<br />

completion and see the impact<br />

that increased traffic flows are going<br />

to have on pedestrians along<br />

Cranford St, I know that I will be<br />

walking my kids to school and<br />

back for the foreseeable future.<br />

Readers also respond<br />

to the article about city<br />

council ordering that<br />

the signs discouraging<br />

dangerous driving in St<br />

Albans be taken down<br />

Ray Derry – Good on Duncan<br />

Webb for supporting Rachel<br />

Donaldson and her signage. Here<br />

is a member of the public trying<br />

to protect people from speeding<br />

drivers and the city council go<br />

the opposite way and order the<br />

removal of the signs. The city<br />

council and the complainant<br />

need to get some common sense.<br />

Allan Visser – I would like to<br />

voice my view which is this: I believe<br />

the city council was wrong<br />

in taking the “St Albans children<br />

matter slow down” signs. I am<br />

so angry that it has done this<br />

as I think they are great signs,<br />

DANGER:<br />

Rachel<br />

Donaldson<br />

made signs<br />

to address<br />

speeding<br />

and<br />

dangerous<br />

driving in<br />

St Albans.<br />

and I am sure that drivers have<br />

taken notice of them. The biggest<br />

reason these signs were put up is<br />

there is no lights or signs to indicate<br />

to drivers to slow down to<br />

30km/h as there is a school in the<br />

area. Sure there is English Park<br />

there but a lot of schoolchildren<br />

walk through its car park to get<br />

to Cranford St and then to get<br />

home. This is something important<br />

the city council should be<br />

doing something about, therefore<br />

those signs were a great incentive.<br />

Besides Cranford St is very busy<br />

at the time when children come<br />

out of school, just like rush hour.<br />

So if you ask me, I think the city<br />

council wants the children to be<br />

killed. It seems the city council<br />

doesn’t care about life, instead<br />

it only cares about money. I<br />

say: “Let us forget money, and<br />

concentrate on saving lives.” That<br />

should be on the top of its list.<br />

Readers respond to the<br />

article about a stoush<br />

between Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board<br />

member John Stringer<br />

(right) and city councillor<br />

Aaron Keown over the<br />

importance of upgrades to<br />

the Gardiners, Breens and<br />

Harewood Rds intersection<br />

Glenda Hicks – I am one if<br />

those who has contacted Aaron<br />

Keown some time ago. I wait<br />

daily for some evidence of a city<br />

council response. I live off Gardiners<br />

Rd between Harewood<br />

and Sawyers Arms Rds. I use the<br />

intersection daily. Until earlier<br />

this year, I commuted to Lincoln<br />

via Johns Rd. It is utter nonsense<br />

for John Stringer to opine that<br />

the well-designed new roundabout<br />

arrangement on Johns Rd<br />

is more dangerous than having<br />

to cross the four lanes on Harewood,<br />

Gardiners and Breens Rds<br />

corner with no assistance whatsoever.<br />

Frustration here causes<br />

people to take risks or have to<br />

turn left and take the nearest U-<br />

turn to get onto the other side.<br />

Mr Keown is undoubtedly representing<br />

the interests of his area.<br />

Mr Stringer is not, and should<br />

not interfere. Anything that the<br />

local media can do to hasten action<br />

on this traffic hazard would<br />

be appreciated.<br />

Graeme Wood – We live<br />

not far from the Harewood,<br />

Breens, Gardiners Rds intersection<br />

and try to avoid most turns<br />

from this dangerous intersection.<br />

I would suggest the powers<br />

to be place temporary cameras<br />

to see what happens at this site.<br />

The police would have a field day<br />

at the amount of motorists that<br />

fail to stop at the compulsory<br />

stop signs, and the drivers who<br />

play Russian roulette to get from<br />

Breens to Gardiners and vice<br />

versa (four lanes, two each way).<br />

Clare reilly - DanCe of life<br />

If the city council can put traffic<br />

lights on Sawyers Arms Rd outside<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre,<br />

then they should get their<br />

priorities right an install them at<br />

Harewood, Breens and Gardiners<br />

Rds. The Harewood/Russley<br />

roundabout flows very well and<br />

controls major traffic. Maybe Mr<br />

Stringer (above) has a night job<br />

and sleeps during the day and<br />

doesn’t see what goes on?<br />

Phil Millar – So where does<br />

this John Stringer live? I bet<br />

it’s not near the intersection. I<br />

challenge him to come down to<br />

this intersection any working<br />

day of the week and spend two<br />

hours in the morning from<br />

7-9am and from 3-6pm. It is<br />

obvious that he has an eyesight<br />

problem or is in denial about<br />

the safety of this intersection.<br />

Where was he when Aaron<br />

Keown had the meeting on the<br />

corner earlier in the year?<br />

In Clare Reilly’s new exhibition, ‘Dance of Life’ she expresses the resilience and tenacity to keep finding<br />

joy and beauty in the natural surroundings. Especially in the hard times, when confronted by the big<br />

challenges in life, that we must all pass through at some stage.<br />

There are events, such as the death of a loved one, that can turn our lives upside down. Finding strength<br />

in nature can help us to stay connected and grounded and bring a sense of being part of the dance of life.<br />

These paintings are meditations on the quiet moments, where we can<br />

step away from everyday stress and become fully present and find a<br />

sense of peace.<br />

They are an invitation to breathe in the moment and dance with life.<br />

But in August a notice turned<br />

up in letter boxes, which showed<br />

on-street parking being lost, as<br />

well as a shared footpath and<br />

cycleway going past.<br />

The notice stated<br />

work was going to<br />

start the next month<br />

and Mr Wayman said<br />

he was not aware any<br />

of this was happening.<br />

“I mentioned it to<br />

[other businesses]<br />

and they didn’t know<br />

anything either,” he<br />

said.<br />

Mr Wayman has<br />

since been battling<br />

the city council over lack of<br />

consultation, with the support of<br />

other businesses, including the<br />

Cranford Ale House.<br />

Ms Ellis said consultation was<br />

under taken through the “notice<br />

of requirement” process.<br />

The business owners concerns<br />

do not stop there.<br />

Mr Wayman said they’re very<br />

worried congestion in the area is<br />

going to increase exponentially.<br />

Apology to residents over park repair<br />

$900k revamp<br />

set to start in<br />

November<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

ST ALBANS residents who<br />

have been unable to use their<br />

neighbourhood park for almost<br />

seven years have received an<br />

apology.<br />

The Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board has said sorry for<br />

the significant delays to the turf<br />

renewal and pavilion rebuild,<br />

which has seen the condition<br />

of St Albans Park deteriorate<br />

since the February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake.<br />

Although the park’s $900,000<br />

revamp is set to start in November,<br />

board chairwoman Ali<br />

Jones said the delay has been far<br />

too long and the community<br />

deserved an apology.<br />

Nearby residents said the<br />

renewal couldn’t come soon<br />

enough.<br />

Information about the work<br />

schedule and an apology has<br />

been sent to the St Albans Residents’<br />

Association for the entire<br />

community.<br />

Association co-chairwoman<br />

Emma Twaddell said it will be<br />

good to see the work finally<br />

begin.<br />

“It’s great to hear that it’s<br />

finally happening, but it is a<br />

shame it’s taken so long because<br />

it’s such a well-used community<br />

space,” she said. Sports groups<br />

which use the park have not<br />

been able to play a home game<br />

this season because the fields are<br />

in such poor condition. And the<br />

playground fills with water after<br />

rain.<br />

Ms Jones said there were no<br />

excuses for the delay.<br />

But it had been caused by a<br />

lack of funding and city council<br />

earthquake insurance settlement<br />

issues.<br />

“As soon we saw the concerns<br />

being voiced, saying there were<br />

no timelines for the St Albans<br />

Park renewal pavilion rebuild,<br />

we immediately sought information<br />

and confirmation from<br />

city council staff,” Ms Jones said.<br />

The timeline for the park<br />

renewal was brought forward<br />

in the city council’s Long Term<br />

Plan after a the community<br />

board voiced its concerns.<br />

City council staff are currently<br />

working alongside groups from<br />

the area to come up with design<br />

concepts which will go back out<br />

to the community for consultation<br />

before being approved.<br />

“When the park is fenced off<br />

for the work, storyboards will be<br />

put up so that the community<br />

can see what and when work<br />

is happening, and how the<br />

finished pavilion will look,” Ms<br />

Jones said.<br />

Chorus box<br />

•From page 1<br />

While the neighbourhood<br />

is tight-knit, Mrs Burney has<br />

lived there for nine years and<br />

she said this has brought them<br />

closer together.<br />

An artist by trade, Mrs<br />

Burney has been working from<br />

her Bishopdale home since the<br />

February 22, 2011, earthquake<br />

forced her out of her last place<br />

of work – the Christchurch<br />

Arts Centre.<br />

“I’ve done a few portraits<br />

from my place but nothing like<br />

this box,” she said.<br />

But Mrs Burney said it’s<br />

been a “very liberating” process.<br />

“Usually I paint quite small<br />

and detailed. This is detailed<br />

but it’s got me painting big,”<br />

she said.<br />

Mrs Burney has never had<br />

such a social job as she said art<br />

is often quite isolating.<br />

People in the neighbourhood<br />

have been stopping to chat,<br />

tooting their horns as they<br />

drive by and even inviting her<br />

in for cups of tea.<br />

“I’d love to do more, it’s been<br />

really cool, really fun,” Mrs<br />

Burney said.<br />

WORDSMITH: Kate Ellis<br />

speaks to the National Council<br />

of Women.<br />

Student’s poem marks<br />

women’s right to vote<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

KATE ELLIS’ poem is about<br />

empowering women.<br />

It was particularly significant<br />

then that the Papanui resident<br />

and year 12 St Margaret’s<br />

College student took out the<br />

Lois Middlemiss Secondary<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

School Poetry Award on<br />

the 124th anniversary of<br />

women receiving the right to<br />

vote.<br />

Kate recited her poem in<br />

front of the National Council of<br />

Women at the Kate Sheppard<br />

Memorial in the central city to<br />

mark the anniversary.<br />

We Can – by Kate Ellis<br />

You can stand –<br />

But you must be silent.<br />

You can watch –<br />

But you must not complain.<br />

You can experience –<br />

But you must not learn.<br />

You can be affected –<br />

But you cannot vote.<br />

You can sit and be pretty –<br />

But you cannot age.<br />

You can watch it all be taken<br />

away –<br />

But you cannot cry for it back.<br />

You can wait for a change –<br />

Unless you make it.<br />

You can stand up and be counted –<br />

Unless you learn to let them stop<br />

you.<br />

You can be strong –<br />

Unless you let their voices exceed<br />

yours.<br />

You can be as loud as you wish –<br />

So long as your voice can carry<br />

and teach.<br />

You can have a say in your<br />

world –<br />

So long as you prepare to<br />

overcome silence.<br />

You can be who you wish to be –<br />

So long as you ignore those<br />

who would take back your<br />

freedom.<br />

You can be free –<br />

If you don’t expect it to be handed<br />

to you.<br />

You can be independent –<br />

If you don’t hold onto the<br />

expectation of the past.<br />

You can be a new woman –<br />

If you vote.<br />

You can –<br />

Wait,<br />

That change,<br />

What become of it?<br />

What of difference?<br />

What of strength?<br />

The battle did not end it merely<br />

began with that paper –<br />

I thought you knew, I thought you<br />

knew.<br />

Will she have children? Soon?<br />

How can she be right either way?<br />

He is right,<br />

He lacks the parts,<br />

He lacks the limitations.<br />

She is a risk –<br />

Rise, should you?<br />

Shout, can you?<br />

Fight, will you?<br />

A pretty face, does not dismiss,<br />

A quick wit,<br />

A sly grin,<br />

A love of life and knowledge,<br />

A purpose<br />

admire – Bethany Hamilton, a<br />

professional surfer who survived<br />

a shark attack but lost her arm in<br />

the process.<br />

The story depicted the shark<br />

attack but went on to celebrate<br />

her resilience and return to<br />

surfing.<br />

Teachers Liz Fairhall and<br />

Simon Christie helped the pupils<br />

with their robotics during a class<br />

unit of inquiry.<br />

The pupils used Lego EV3 kits<br />

and Arduino microprocessors to<br />

create their robots.<br />

If they found the Lego kits<br />

did not have a piece they were<br />

looking for, they designed and<br />

ROBOTICS: Sonya Li-McHenry, Sophie Schneideman, Aria<br />

Wakelin and Evelyn King with their winning robots.<br />

3D-printed their own pieces to<br />

fit the purpose, allowing them<br />

to move beyond the kit<br />

limitations.<br />

“There is a big need for<br />

women in science, technology,<br />

engineering and maths careers<br />

and Robocup provides a great<br />

pathway to engage and captivate<br />

young girls within a tech future,”<br />

Mrs Fairhall said.<br />

INQUIRY: The pupils spent<br />

class time programming their<br />

robots to tell the tale of surfer<br />

Bethany Hamilton.<br />

WELLBEING<br />

FEAST DAY<br />

Message from the Catholic Diocese<br />

of Christchurch<br />

Our Diocese is proud of Marian College. The school is<br />

thriving at its inner-city campus location alongside the<br />

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament on Barbadoes Street.<br />

Marian College shows us clearly that the heart of a<br />

Catholic school lies not in its buildings, but in a strong,<br />

supportive community built around faith.<br />

Marian College belongs to the Catholic Kāhui Ako<br />

Community of Learning, one of our 13 schools in<br />

Christchurch. Each school has an affiliated parish and<br />

networks contributing to the Diocese.<br />

Alongside our Diocese earthquake rebuild and repair<br />

programme, our parishes have been offered the chance to<br />

focus on spiritual renewal as we wait for a new Bishop<br />

to be appointed.<br />

The process for the rebuild of Marian College’s campus<br />

will be a priority for our new Bishop, who will ultimately<br />

make the decision on Marian College’s permanent site.<br />

This decision will not be made in isolation however,<br />

there are many factors to consider and groups to consult<br />

with, given the changes in our communities since<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

The Diocese looks forward to keeping the community<br />

updated on progress. In the meantime, Marian College<br />

continues to achieve excellent results and to thrive.<br />

A special thank you goes to the Marian College<br />

community – students, parents, staff and leadership, for<br />

your ongoing patience, support and cooperation.<br />

Fr Rick Loughnan<br />

Catholic Diocese of Christchurch Administrator<br />

The Marian College Principal<br />

Marian College is very fortunate to have a small, friendly,<br />

family atmosphere which comes from teachers and<br />

students knowing each other well.<br />

I am delighted to share that our students and teachers are<br />

making the very best of our current site – opportunities<br />

for collaboration are plenty and the benefits that come of<br />

an inner-city location are taken up with enthusiasm.<br />

At Marian College our special Catholic character is<br />

built into everything we do. Our earthquake recovery<br />

journey has taught us, that while brand new buildings and<br />

facilities are an exciting proposition, it is our faith, our<br />

community and our people that matter. I am excited about<br />

the future of Marian College – we can all look forward to a<br />

bright, sparkling new start. I hope you enjoy reading about<br />

some of our recent happenings.<br />

Mary-Lou Davidson,<br />

Marian College Principal<br />

Feast Day Festivities<br />

One of the most anticipated events on the Marian<br />

College calendar is Feast Day – recognised every year to<br />

celebrate the Assumption of Mary. This year, Feast Day<br />

began with a whole school Mass, which included the<br />

blessing of the new music department, featuring practice<br />

spaces and a multipurpose room.<br />

Traditional Feast Day activities involve Marian College’s<br />

house groups coming together in Xavier Hall to compete<br />

in a talent quest and house group chant competition.<br />

Rivalry between the four Marian College houses –<br />

Brodie, Deans, Seymour and Takahe – is strong and<br />

overwhelmingly positive. Students have been known to<br />

rehearse their chants and performances for up to six weeks<br />

in advance, polishing their acts ready for competition.<br />

Each performance is judged and awarded house points<br />

which are tallied throughout the year. The house with<br />

the most points earned – for academic, sporting, cultural,<br />

service and cultural achievements – is awarded the annual<br />

Inter-House Shield at the end of year school prize giving.<br />

Aiming for France<br />

Football talent Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)<br />

could be heading to France next year to represent New<br />

Zealand and play in the 2018 U20 Women’s World Cup.<br />

The Year 13 Marian college student helped captain<br />

the New Zealand U19 Football team to victory in the<br />

Oceania Football Confederation championships in<br />

Auckland recently, securing the team’s spot in France,<br />

2018. Rebecca captained the team twice over the five<br />

game campaign which saw the team win all their games<br />

convincingly. Rebecca is a member of the Football Ferns<br />

development squad and has played with Mainland Pride<br />

(the National Women’s regional team) for three years.<br />

RIA KNEY<br />

Judo medallist<br />

Congratulations to Ria Kney (Ngāti Kahungunu) who<br />

won a gold medal in the U52kg girls category at the New<br />

Zealand Secondary Schools Judo Tournament last term.<br />

She won all five of her fights in the one day tournament<br />

held at Lincoln High School. Ria also won gold in two<br />

categories at the Auckland International Judo Open<br />

tournament held three weeks later at ASB Stadium in<br />

Auckland. One of her fights lasted just ten seconds!<br />

Wellbeing and service<br />

A priority for Marian College this year has been student<br />

and staff wellbeing. This year, Marian has introduced two<br />

new courses: Kia Maia and Mana Wahine. Kia Maia is a<br />

course for Year 9 students which focuses on wellbeing,<br />

character strengths, use of money, cyber safety and<br />

developing study and life skills.<br />

The Mana Wahine course aims to promote strong Marian<br />

women. Especially for year 12 students, the course<br />

teaches wellbeing, study techniques, life skills, careers,<br />

financial literacy and service.<br />

Marian College has a strong commitment to providing<br />

service to the community. Not only students, but staff<br />

members are also actively involved.<br />

Marian College staff members rolled up their sleeves<br />

recently, to spend an afternoon participating in a range of<br />

service activities including assisting at Christchurch City<br />

Mission and St Vincent de Paul, cleaning up a beach,<br />

gardening for the Beatitude sisters, making goods for<br />

Christchurch Hospital’s neo-natal unit and other<br />

children in need.<br />

Southern Jam<br />

Marian College’s Jazz Band travelled to the Southern<br />

Jam Jazz Festival in Blenheim recently – taking part<br />

in the showcase and celebration of the South Island’s<br />

secondary school jazz bands. Marian College’s Jazz Band<br />

performed at eight public venues and took home a bronze<br />

award. Band director Frances Daly is a Marian old girl<br />

currently studying at Ara Jazz School. Frances inspired<br />

the Jazz Band to compose an original song ‘Dirty<br />

Window’, which won Best Original Song at this year’s<br />

Christchurch Jazz Festival.<br />

Pool full of medals for St Andrew’s<br />

SPORTS<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

ST ANDREW’S College made a<br />

huge splash at the New Zealand<br />

secondary school swimming<br />

championships.<br />

The college crowned best co-ed<br />

school and the boys’ team came<br />

second.<br />

The 16-strong team won a total<br />

of 31 medals – 12 gold, 13 silver<br />

and six bronze – at the event in<br />

Hamilton from <strong>September</strong> 15-17.<br />

Each podium finish gave<br />

the school points, which were<br />

added up to give them their<br />

final position at the end of the<br />

competition.<br />

School spokeswoman Anj<br />

Hawkins said there were personal<br />

bests and medals at the meet,<br />

an achievement the school is<br />

proud of.<br />

“These results are promising.<br />

It’s very pleasing to see a lot of<br />

young talent coming through the<br />

year groups. This no doubt makes<br />

for some exciting years to come<br />

for the St Andrew’s College swim<br />

team,” she said.<br />

Shave for a cure<br />

Jesse Northcoat with Hairdresser from Hames Hairdressing<br />

Congratulations to all those who<br />

participated in Burnside High School’s <strong>2017</strong><br />

‘Shave For a Cure’. On Friday the 25th of<br />

August, a brave group of 20 students shaved<br />

their hair to raise funds as well as awareness<br />

for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.<br />

This organisation ensures all individuals and<br />

families who are sadly faced with Leukaemia<br />

& Blood Cancer are well supported. The<br />

Left to right: Akshat Goyal, Josiah Edwin, Ryan Worsley<br />

shave took place at lunchtime creating a<br />

supportive atmosphere with many students<br />

helping out. Large support from Burnside<br />

High School’s community saw the team raise<br />

over $5,900! A huge thanks goes to Hames<br />

Hairdressing, Gray Ryburn, Jess Cliffe and<br />

all the helpers for allowing this event to be<br />

a success! Burnside High School is looking<br />

forward to ‘Shave For a Cure’ 2018!<br />

Table Tennis<br />

Both our Boys and Girls Table Tennis teams<br />

competed this year in the NZ Secondary<br />

Schools Championships held in Palmerston<br />

North. The Boys won the Open A grade,<br />

beating Auckland Grammar in the final. The<br />

Girls won the Girls grade, beating Macleans<br />

College in the final.<br />

This is the first time our Table Tennis teams<br />

possibly the first time in the history of this<br />

tournament that one school has taken out both<br />

titles.<br />

NZ call-up for college captains<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

ST ANDREW’S hooker Shilo<br />

Klein and Christ’s College centre<br />

Isaiah Punivai have been named<br />

in the New Zealand Schools<br />

team.<br />

Klein and Punivai both<br />

captained their sides in the UC<br />

Championship campaign and<br />

caught the eye of national selectors.<br />

Only five South Islanders<br />

have been included in the New<br />

Zealand Schools side set to play<br />

three matches next month. ​<br />

St Andrew’s sports co-ordinator<br />

Rod McIntosh said it was a<br />

well-deserved call up.<br />

“He is a pretty special kid who<br />

set goals at the start of the year<br />

and has achieved them,” he said.<br />

GREAT food<br />

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...<br />

Your fresh food people<br />

SPRING ONION PANCAKES<br />

Ingredients<br />

250g Plain flour, plus extra for<br />

dusting<br />

80 ml Boiling water<br />

70 ml Cold water<br />

2 Tbsp Vegetable oil<br />

1 bunch Spring onion, finely<br />

chopped<br />

1 tsp Sesame seeds<br />

Directions<br />

Put the flour in a bowl and<br />

add the boiling water, stirring<br />

with chopsticks. This is called<br />

‘burning’ the flour. Give it a mix<br />

and once it has cooled enough,<br />

continue mixing with your hands.<br />

Add the cold water, a quarter at<br />

a time, and continue mixing.<br />

When mixed thoroughly, take<br />

the dough out of the bowl and<br />

knead on a flour-covered bench.<br />

You may need to add more flour<br />

as you knead. Continue kneading<br />

until the dough is shiny and your<br />

hands and the bench are clear of<br />

dough.<br />

Roll the dough into a ball and<br />

place in a bowl covered with cling<br />

film. Seat aside for about half an<br />

hour. Take a piece of dough about<br />

the size of your fist and roll it out<br />

on the bench into a circle about<br />

15cm in diameter. Spread some<br />

vegetable oil over the dough, then<br />

sprinkle over the chopped spring<br />

onion. Sprinkle over the sesame<br />

seeds.<br />

Roll the pancake into a tight<br />

cylinder, then coil it around into<br />

a circle (like a caterpillar rolling<br />

itself into a circle). With a rolling<br />

pin, flatten this circle into a<br />

pancake again.<br />

Add oil to your frying pan and<br />

heat to a medium-high heat. Add<br />

the pancake to the frying pan and<br />

fry until golden, then flip and<br />

cook the other side until golden<br />

and crisp. Serve as a side dish<br />

with chilli oil or chilli sauce or<br />

your favourite Asian-inspired dip.<br />

Also great at breakfast time.<br />

APPLE AND PORK MINCE<br />

PINWHEELS<br />

Ingredients<br />

500g Pork mince<br />

2 tsp Sesame oil<br />

1 tsp Chicken stock, powder<br />

1 tsp Celery salt<br />

2 tsp Fennel seeds<br />

2 Tbsp Fresh parsley<br />

1 tsp Fresh dill<br />

2 cloves Garlic<br />

1 Onion<br />

½ Ambrosia Apple, finely diced<br />

with skin on<br />

2 Eggs, one for egg wash<br />

750g Flaky puff pastry, ready<br />

rolled<br />

Directions<br />

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C<br />

fan bake.<br />

Combine the first 10<br />

ingredients in a bowl.<br />

Mix in one egg.<br />

Divide mixture evenly onto<br />

four sheets of pastry, taking care<br />

to ensure you leave some space<br />

on each edge (about 2.5cm) for<br />

easy rolling.<br />

Lightly beat remaining egg for<br />

egg wash and brush the edges to<br />

help seal the pinwheel.<br />

Roll each sheet from the long<br />

end and cut each into four<br />

pinwheels with a sharp knife.<br />

Place on baking paper on<br />

oven tray and egg wash the<br />

pinwheels.<br />

Sprinkle on sesame seeds.<br />

Melanoma Deadlier<br />

Than Road Fatalities<br />

Summer is around the corner, and it brings with it the<br />

temptation for some to “pre-tan” using artificial UV<br />

tanning equipment; but is it really worth the risk?<br />

More people die from melanoma<br />

each year than are killed<br />

annually in road crashes.<br />

This statistic was part of<br />

a comprehensive submission made to<br />

parliament’s Health Select Committee which<br />

is considering outlawing sunbeds for people<br />

under the age of 18 years.<br />

The submission was made by Accuro<br />

Health Insurance, established in the 1970s as<br />

a private insurer for the public health sector.<br />

Today it trades as a private health insurer<br />

with a widespread, general membership.<br />

Accuro, in supporting the submission<br />

made by the New Zealand Dermatological<br />

Society, pointed to a New Zealand Cancer<br />

Society figure of 324 deaths from melanoma<br />

in 2010. According to the NZ Road Transport<br />

Agency there were 253 road deaths for the 12<br />

months to February 2014 and 303 for the 12<br />

months to February 2015.<br />

In highlighting the figure, CEO Geoff<br />

Annals emphasised the serious nature of<br />

the disease and his submission drew the<br />

committee’s attention to the financial, social<br />

and personal costs of skin cancer.<br />

He quoted Cancer Society figures which<br />

report that New Zealand, along with<br />

Australia, has amongst the highest melanoma<br />

rates in the world. In 2010 melanoma was<br />

the fourth most common cancer with 2,341<br />

registered cases and the sixth most common<br />

cause of death from cancer.<br />

The Cancer Society further reports that<br />

skin cancer currently costs this country<br />

about $123 million annually.<br />

Geoff Annals says research by the Centre<br />

for Disease Control showed the introduction<br />

of seat belts reduced serious crash related<br />

injuries and deaths by about half and banning<br />

artificial UV tanning services is warranted<br />

on the same public health grounds as the<br />

compulsory seat belt legislation.<br />

While Accuro’s submission related to a ban<br />

for people under 18 years, it supports the<br />

introduction of a total ban on commercial<br />

artificial UV tanning.<br />

“As a health insurer grounded in the public<br />

health sector, we are strongly committed<br />

to supporting the effectiveness of publicly<br />

funded health services and better health<br />

outcomes for all New Zealanders,” Geoff<br />

Annals says.<br />

A leading New Zealand dermatologist, Dr<br />

Louise Reiche, who also made submissions<br />

to the Health Select Committee, says she’s<br />

treating many young people, especially<br />

women in their 20s and 30s, with melanomas<br />

resulting from commercial sunbed exposure.<br />

She says clients typically lie naked on<br />

their sunbeds and expose skin to radiation<br />

emitted from UV lamps which can be up to<br />

13 times greater than the peak summer sun.<br />

She’s now treating people with cancer of the<br />

genital skin which is more vulnerable to skin<br />

cancer development.<br />

“The medical profession is run off their<br />

feet with people presenting themselves with<br />

skin cancers causing the public health system<br />

to be overwhelmed,” Dr Reiche says.<br />

“The waiting list is three to four months<br />

for urgent cases and, during the delay, the<br />

cancers are growing. This results in poorer<br />

health outcomes and more complex and<br />

expensive procedures.”<br />

Geoff Annals quoted Cancer<br />

Society figures which report<br />

that New Zealand, along<br />

with Australia, has amongst<br />

the highest melanoma<br />

rates in the world. In 2010<br />

melanoma was the fourth<br />

most common cancer with<br />

2,341 registered cases and<br />

the sixth most common<br />

cause of death from cancer.<br />

more than 600 million YouTube views and 2+<br />

million subscribers, performed on “Good<br />

Morning America,” topped iTunes and Billboard<br />

charts and played hundreds of shows to packedhouse<br />

crowds around the world. As NPR put it,<br />

they've done this by “taking current Top 40 hits<br />

and re-imagining them as coming from older<br />

eras of popular music.”<br />

The mastermind behind the group, Scott<br />

Bradlee has turned Postmodern Jukebox into a<br />

juggernaut by building an incredible grassroots<br />

movement around the act. He continues to pick<br />

the songs, create the arrangements and shows,<br />

and puts together the performers - which<br />

includes some notable names alongside<br />

phenomenal "undiscovered" talent. e group<br />

releases a new video every week, each one shot<br />

Postmodern Jukebox is certainly a rebuke to<br />

the contention that 'they don't make 'em like<br />

they used to' - and there's something truly<br />

special about witnessing their musical magic<br />

live.<br />

To echo Bradlee's own invitation: “Dust off<br />

the turntable, fix yourself a stiff drink, and get<br />

comfy. Welcome to the world of Postmodern<br />

Jukebox.”<br />

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox performs<br />

Renee Murray from NZME<br />

Events, organiser of the Expo<br />

says “Our aim is to have as wide<br />

of a range of companies involved<br />

with the Expo as possible.<br />

Women are all different and their<br />

individual interests are so diverse.<br />

One woman may love the latest in<br />

makeup or is looking for childcare<br />

options but the woman beside her<br />

may be more interested in sampling<br />

handmade cheese or discovering<br />

travel and cultural experiences.<br />

It’s great on the weekend to see<br />

all the various women visit the<br />

show, from teenagers to business<br />

women, mothers to grandmothers<br />

and friends simply enjoying each<br />

other’s company. It’s becoming<br />

more common for us to see three<br />

generations visit the Expo together as<br />

well, with the daughter, mother and<br />

grandmother all enjoying the show and<br />

spending the day with each other.”<br />

Featuring lots of new companies and<br />

everything from fashion and accessories<br />

to travel, giftware, fantastic food and<br />

wine, crafts, unique businesses,<br />

beauty, eco-friendly products,<br />

education, community groups and<br />

so much more – what interests the<br />

modern woman will be at the Expo.<br />

Take time for yourself; Have a Mother–Daughter day out or grab<br />

the girlfriends and head to the Women’s Lifestyle Expo on this 30th<br />

<strong>September</strong> & 1st October at Horncastle Arena. Door Sales only $10.

With over 200 companies involved, it will be one of the<br />

largest events held in the region and organisers expect many<br />

thousand women to visit the Expo over the two days.<br />

Renee Murray from Expo<br />

Organisers, NZME Events says<br />

“We will be bringing a fabulous<br />

experience to the women of<br />

Canterbury for one weekend.<br />

Don’t miss this opportunity to see<br />

so many wonderful companies and<br />

do lots of shopping under the one<br />

roof. Aside from having the best of<br />

local companies exhibiting at the<br />

Expo we have a large number of<br />

national companies who will travel<br />

to Christchurch from all around<br />

New Zealand especially to show<br />

local women their products. This<br />

is a great chance for women to<br />

stop, relax and spoil themselves<br />

for one weekend”.<br />

Brandhouse will return to the<br />

Expo again with their range of<br />

champagne, vodka, port and<br />

wines. Popular last year was<br />

the Royal Dragon’s elite flavour<br />

vodka collection with some<br />

flavours selling out. Introducing<br />

the most tantalizing and unique<br />

flavoured vodka collection of its<br />

time, flavours include Watermelon,<br />

Green Apple, Passion Fruit,<br />

Chocolate and Lychee… a<br />

great vodka collection to enjoy<br />

neat, on the rocks or in your<br />

favourite cocktail! Visit the large<br />

Brandhouse site at the show to<br />

sample from their fabulous range and<br />

take home what you love.<br />

A new exhibitor to the show is The Lip<br />

Lounge, a new Christchurch based<br />

business that can help you customize<br />

your own lipstick in your favourite<br />

shade. You can even bring in your<br />

favourite lipstick that may have been<br />

deleted or you want to replicate and<br />

you can watch the girls at The Lip<br />

Lounge mix and create your perfect<br />

shade right in front of you.<br />

A popular section of the show is<br />

the large Artisan Craft Zone. With<br />

some favourite companies appearing<br />

every year and new companies<br />

featuring, it’s the perfect spot to<br />

find original crafts and creations.<br />

Crafter Alexander will travel to<br />

the show all the way from Marton<br />

in the North Island to showcase<br />

his range of handcrafted wooden<br />

kitchen planters. These have<br />

sold out at the past two Expos so<br />

Alex is looking forward to seeing<br />

the feedback from Christchurch<br />

visitors.<br />

Craft Zone at the show and meet<br />

some talented small businesses.<br />
