$100m in rates: Do you

get your money’s worth?

Study shows what

north-west

residents are paying

• By Julia Evans

THE FENDALTON, Waimairi

and Harewood wards are putting

$100 million into the city’s rates

fund.

That’s almost a fifth of the total

$497 million the city council

collected in rates for the 2016/17

year.

But Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board deputy chairman Sam

MacDonald says the $100 million

doesn’t always match the level of

service local ratepayers get.

Mr MacDonald, an accountant,

has done a fifnancial exercise on

the rates people in the wards pay.

“I wanted to get it particularly

in the lead up to the Long Term

Plan so we can advocate for

things like getting our roads

fifxed and getting the basics

covered,” he said.

Mr MacDonald said although

the wards put a “high” amount

of money into the city council’s

rates fund, residents aren’t

always getting things like good

roading, clean water and rubbish

collected.

“We can say this is how much

we pay into the kitty so it should

translate . . . service shouldn’t

waver,” he said. On top of that,

there are the larger projects such

as the new Fendalton pump

house or regenerating Bishopdale

which also need to be lobbied for.

“The essential point of local

government is to deal with basic

things like water, road repairs

and collecting rubbish,” he said.

“We’ve got to get the basics

right and I don’t think we

always are . . . there are always

improvements that could be

made,” he said.

FIX IT: Community board deputy chairman Sam MacDonald said residents in his wards should

have the basics covered like roading, considering they have paid $100 million rates.

from the editor’s desk

AN INTERESTING exercise on our front

page today which Sam MacDonald spent

some of his holidays on.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board deputy chairman is an

accountant by profession so he tampered with some figures over

Christmas/New Year, the outcome of which is in today’s paper.

The question is: Does he have a valid argument – are ratepayers

in the Fendalton, Waimairi and Harewood wards getting

their money’s worth from the high rates they pay?

MacDonald is questioning whether they are and, as a result, he

will be distributing the figures to community board members,

who can use them when talking to interest groups.

That will arm those groups with data if and when they lobby

the city council for money to fix roads, and provide better

services. – Barry Clarke

Boards eye traffic, youth issues

• By Julia Evans

FROM FINISHING anchor

projects, to getting the basics

right and keeping rates down –

community boards are set for a

busy year.

Nor’West News asked the

Papanui-Innes and Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood community

boards what the key issues

are in 2018.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said its plans include a number

of short, medium and longterm

goals.

“The board will be focusing

on mitigating any negatives the

growth in traffic . . . creates,”

Ms Jones said.

This year it will also be vying

to get funding included for a

youth recreation centre in the

Long Term Plan, she said. It

also wants to continue connecting

to the local community

through events like the garden

and the edible garden awards.

Papanui city councillor Mike

Davidson said he was personally

looking forward to seeing

some positive community

outcomes in his area.

“Like the repair of the

Redwood Plunket room being

completed and this building being

used by the community for

Ali Jones

Mike

Davidson

the community,” he said.

Cr Davidson said although it

is currently at an early stage, he

is hoping to see the regeneration

of the historic Papanui Bush in

Bridgestone Reserve started.

“With the Long Term Plan

being adopted, I will be looking

to secure funding for much

needed outdoor youth recreational

facilities in Papanui

and Redwood over the next 10

years.” Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman David Cartwright

David

Cartwright

Aaron

Keown

said most of the board’s objectives

will come off the back of

the long-term and annual plans.

“It ranges from maintaining

all of the standard projects to

the bigger, chunkier end of the

spectrum like developing Bishopdale

Mall,” he said.

But Mr Cartwright said,

personally, he was particularly

interested in focusing on savvy

spending of city council funds.

“Being responsible with

council money has always been

a concern of mine,” he said. Mr

CONGESTION: Dealing with

traffic is high on the priority

list for the Papanui-Innes

Community Board.

Cartwright would like to see

the annual general charge on

city council rates reviewed and

increased. “It’s about $80 or

$90 at the moment . . . it doesn’t

even include rubbish removal.

The inequality needs to be

reviewed,” he said.

Harewood city councillor

Aaron Keown said the plan for

lights at Harewood, Breens and

Gardiners Rds is at the top of

his list.

But that isn’t the only goal Cr

Keown’s is shooting for. He said

he will also lobby for rates not

increasing more than inflation.

“We’ve got to get spending

under control. We’ve got these

community facilities that are

really expensive . . . and so

many pools. It’s crazy, we need

to rein it in,” he said.

Bill the Botanist leaves his garden

LEGACY: Bill Sykes on his 90th birthday in October.

Well known St Albans botanist Bill Sykes passed away on January 5. His

perennial love of nature and adventure meant life was never quiet.

Julia Evans reports.

WILLIAM SYKES was born

with a green thumb.

Fondly called Bill the Botanist,

the well-known St Albans

resident passed away at Nurse

Maude Hospice aged 90.

But it was when he was at

primary school in Suffolk,

United Kingdom, that his

life-long love of all things flora

began during a competition to

collect as many wild flowers and

plants as possible.

From the age of 16, he went

on expeditions to the Himalayas

in Nepal to study undiscovered

plants and animals, visited

the United States to study

Californian redwoods, and

went on a trip to the Kermadec

Islands which had to be cut

short due to a volcanic eruption.

He published accounts of

his adventures and discoveries

in various journals and

publications throughout his

life. In 2005, he was awarded a

New Zealand Order of Merit for

services to botany.

But one of his proudest

moments was in 2016, when

the latest of his books was

published.

WORK: Bill Sykes on an expedition in Nepal.

Flora in the Cook Islands

is based on more than three

decades of work and countless

trips to the Pacific atolls to

study the plant life. It followed

the release of Floras of Niue

and Floras of the Kermadec

Islands in the 1970s. He also coauthored

Floras of New Zealand

Volume IV in 1988.

“But he was an incredibly

humble man. To us, he was

just Bill. But to a lot of other

people, he was incredibly highly

regarded,” Mr Sykes daughterin-law

Marnie Kent said.

behind aged 90

In 1961, following an

invitation to work with

the botany division of the

Department of Scientific

Research at Lincoln from

renown New Zealand botanist

Eric Godley, Mr Sykes left the

UK for New Zealand.

In spite of retiring in the early

1990s, Mr Sykes continued to

work as a research associate

in the botany division and

contributed to the New Zealand

Grass Flora, 2000.

He moved to St Albans in

1991. About two years later, he

married Peggy Kelly, then three

years on the pair co-founded

the Packe Street Community

Garden just down the road from

their long-time home.

Mr Sykes and his wife were

made life members of the Packe

Street Association in March,

having spent countless hours

pruning, weeding and tending

the native plants.

An afternoon tea was held in

the garden to celebrate his 90th

birthday in October.

Ms Kent said Mr Sykes’

funeral, held at John Rind

Funeral Services in Richmond

last Tuesday, was “absolute

madness” with people packing

in to pay their respects.

Mr Sykes left behind a large

and loving family, including

son Julian, daughter Claire and

granddaughter Amelia – as well

as step-children Katrinka, Justin

and Louise.

His family, friends and

botanical colleagues were

very dear to him, Ms Kent said.

WORK IS set to start on

repairing and upgrading St

Albans Park.

The $900,000 revamp of the

park’s drainage and irrigation

system, as well as remediation

of the field playing surface, is

scheduled to start this week.

The upgrade comes on the

back of ongoing frustration

from St Albans residents who

said the park and playground

have been a cesspit of smelly

brown water following the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

“Conditions have deteriorated

for the park since the earthquakes,”

council operation

manager for neighbourhood

“There is also a new pavilion

rehoming hundreds

of animals this

summer, reporter

Emily O’Connell

checks out some of

the potential pets

desperately in need

of some love and

attention

PASCAL THE cat is looking for

a new home.

And if she gets one, the nineyear-old

will become one of

hundreds of cats rehomed by

the Society for the Prevention of

Cruelty to Animals Canterbury

this summer.

Pascal is an affectionate and

loving animal, according to

SPCA southern region general

manager Barry Helem. But the

furry feline has been without a

home for two months.

Mr Helem said Pascal was

found lost in Ashburton and was

taken to a vet clinic as she had an

injured tongue and some dental

issues. She was collected by the

SPCA ambulance and had a few

teeth removed as well as other

treatments to help her heal.

Pascal then went to a foster

home where her foster parents

said she loved “rolling around,

chilling out in front of the fan

and sleeping on the pillows.”

Mr Helem said the perfect

home for Pascal would be one

with no young children, “so

she can live out her golden

years calmly being the centre of

attention.”

“She has two disclaimers –

one regarding the teeth which

she had removed and another

regarding a historic soft tissue

Mr Helem said SPCA

Canterbury has had a very high

adoption rate during summer

but also a very high influx of

animals coming into its care.

“Our adoptions for the

November and December period

totalled 316. This included

201 cats and kittens, 14 dogs

and puppies, 59 rabbits and

32 livestock. This total is an 11

per cent increase over the same

period last year,” he said.

Pascal is one of about 20 cats

SPCA Canterbury is currently

trying to rehome.

The organisation has 321

animals on-site at present and

139 animals in foster homes.

Adoption fees for an adult cat

like Pascal are $150, kittens $250,

adult dogs $250, puppies $350

and rabbits $50.

In a bid to continue rehoming

animals, SPCA Canterbury has

a Facebook page which profiles

different animals in their care.

The page has more than 22,000

followers.

SPCA is a charity which

helps protect animals that are

sick, injured, lost, abused or

simply abandoned. Every year,

the 40 SPCA centres across

the country receive more than

doors and 14,000 animal welfare

Work began yesterday, marking

the start of the 10-month

project that will see a new entertainment

refurbishment of the existing

bathrooms.

The development will include

College of Hotel Management.

Aimee is set to move to the

college’s campus in South

Australia in July to start the

four-year programme, which

leads to a Bachelor of Business

and Bachelor of International

Hotel Management.

She was the only winner from

New Zealand out of five scholarships

awarded throughout

Australasia. She undertook a

written assignment and did a

panel interview for the scholarship.

The college is the Asia-Pacific

campus of the Swiss Hotel

Association and Aimee said it

will give her a wider knowledge

of the hotel industry.

“The history of the association

also interests me and it would

be cool to be able to learn under

one of the oldest associations in

the world”, she said.

The 18-year-old was born in

Melbourne and said she has

always felt a deep connection

with Australia.

The college programme will

see Aimee taught in four academic

semesters, complete 1500

hours of industry placement

and learn a second language.

The industry placement

programme could take Aimee

anywhere in Australia in her

first year and anywhere in the

He also doesn’t want rates to

“I expect rate increases to be

said.

He said his figures can be

council for funding.

“The way I see it, council talks

HISTORY: The Papanui railway station was the starting point for Papanui

Primary School pupils’ days out during World War 1.

Papanui pupils always

loved summer

Papanui Heritage Group chairman Murray Williams returns for

the year with his monthly look into Papanui’s rich history. He

writes about the adventures of Papanui Primary School pupils

through the 1920s and 30s

THE immediate

post-World War 1 period

was significant for

Papanui Primary School.

The Canterbury Education

Board finally agreed

that the original school,

built in 1870 on the corner

of the North and Winters

Rds, was no longer fit for

its purpose.

In 1926, the move to a

larger site, featuring modern

buildings between

Winters and Tuttons

Rds (now Cranford St),

was welcomed as a new

beginning for the school –

although one feature that

did not change was the

institution of the annual

school picnic.

The school committee

was prepared to permit

lessons to be suspended

for a day for the event,

which was usually held

at a venue that entailed a

train trip.

Perhaps that experience

was seen as an integral

part of the annual treat.

But another issue was

the timing of the muchanticipated

event.

Perhaps the ideal date

would have been in December

in the last week

of school when juvenile

concentration span in

standard lessons would

have been naturally flagging

as the long summer

holidays approached.

However, in the interwar

period, the committee

tended to favour February,

March or April, possibly

as the weather was seen to

be more settled.

In both 1925 and 1926,

the chosen venue was

Pearson Park, Oxford.

The school committee

minutes included quotes

from the railways department

for the return trip:

Children’s fares were 1/6

(15 cents) teachers, 2 shillings

(20 cents) and other

adults 2/6 (25 cents).

In 1927, the venue was

Little River. The train was

scheduled to leave Papanui

at 9.15am.

This would have been a

long day for children (and

staff) as the train did not

leave for the return trip

until 4.30pm.

Later events were held in

Ashburton and Amberley,

although in 1934 the

children had to be satisfied

with a walk to the Papanui

Domain in Sawyers Arms

Rd.

Perhaps a sign of hard

times in the depression of

the early 1930s.

A school committee

minute from 1932 gives

some idea of the activities

involved in the annual

picnic.

Committee responsibilities

were defined and

assigned – for example,

judges, recorders, handicappers,

and the provision

of milk, soft drink and

lollies, a measuring tape,

bell and sacks.

In 1938, athletic events

were not the only activity

on offer, the Amberley

baths were available for

swimming and the pupils

were then given free ice

cream and soft drink to

complement the healthier

snack provided by local

orchardist, Frank Sisson,

who donated four cases of

apples.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Co-Q10 reduces all

causes of mortality

by 50%

Researchers were amazed with the

results of how beneficial a natural nutrient

Coenzyme- Q10 (CoQ10) is to the human

body. Co-Q10 is a natural enzyme in

the body’s cells that is essential for cell

function, energy and survival. The Heart,

Liver, Kidneys and Pancreas require large

amounts of Co-Q10 to function well.

In a recent multi country double blind

trial on the possible benefits of CoQ10 to

protect against heart failure, 420 patients

with severe heart failure were given CoQ10

or a placebo and then followed for two

years. It was found to the amazement of

the researchers the patients who received

the Co-Q10 had a 50% reduction in an

adverse cardiovascular event or death

compared to the placebo patients. Not only

this but the patients on the CoQ10 had a

50% reduction in death not only from

cardiovascular events but from all causes.

According to lead study author Professor

Mortensen this study is the first in over a

decade to show a natural nutrient can

reduce heart failure mortality and CoQ10

should be added as a standard treatment

for anyone with cardiovascular complaints.

It is known that CoQ10 levels decrease in

the heart muscle of patients with heart

failure as severity worsens. Statin drugs

are used to treat many patients with

cardiovascular problems but these drugs

also reduce CoQ10 levels further in the

body. Symptoms of low CoQ10 in the body

can be low energy and endurance, muscle

pain, poor memory and concentration and

poor heart function or heart failure.

CoQ10 levels are known to decrease

as we age and many researchers believe

keeping our levels up of this vital nutrient

may help prevent many chronic diseases

including cancer.

Co-Q10 is available as a natural

supplement to support good health.

Centuries old folk remedy

supports good health!

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an

array of powerful health benefits. It is none

other than the popular apple cider vinegar

or ACV. Since the time of Hippocrates –

the “Father of Medicine” – ACV has been

renowned for its curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS and

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis

reports how he found that Vermonters

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey

had excellent health with many putting in

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties. He also noted

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and

H around meal time had excellent blood

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly

through the blood vessels and capillaries.

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as

well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts

more stress on the blood vessels, organs

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals

will help prevent protein raising the blood

regular consumption of CV and H to be

an excellent health tonic with numerous

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all

the goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the body. Good health

starts with good digestion and assimilation

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will

stimulate and promote healthy digestion

Stretch

your way back to it

As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you

may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.

This is a good indicator from our

bodies, that the holiday routine

was somewhat different. Perhaps

you sit a lot for work and you

were on the go or, you are normally more

active and the holiday break was more

sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay

attention to these signals the easier it will

be to deal with it.

So what can you do to ward off pain

and stiffness and boost your energy and

alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises

at your desk that will release tension from

head to toe. They take only a few minutes.

Set the alarm on your cell phone or

computer to go off every hour to remind

you it’s time to get up and stretch.

Just stand up and sit down - no hands

If you stand up and sit down (over and

over) without using your hands it can be a

challenge, do it while you’re on the phone;

no one will know.

Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders

Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders,

lifting them high up to your ears. Hold.

Release and drop. Repeat three times.

Loosen the hands with air circles

Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you.

Make circles in the air, first in one direction,

to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles.

Shake out the hands.

Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you,

pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your

right hand to increase the stretch, pushing

your fingers down and toward the body.

Be gentle do the same with the other hand.

Now stretch your left hand out straight

in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing

skyward. Use your right hand to increase

the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward

your body. Do the same on the other side.

Release the upper body with a torso twist

Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right

and grab the back of your chair with your

right hand, and grab the arm of the chair

with your left. With eyes level, use your

grasp on the chair to help twist your torso

around as far to the back of the room as

possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes

continue the stretch see how far around

the room you can peer. Slowly come back

to facing forward. Repeat on the other side.

Do leg extensions

Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

and extend your legs straight out in front of

you so they are parallel to the floor.Flex and

point your toes five times. Release. Repeat.

Stretch your back with a “big hug”

Hug your body, placing the right hand on

your left shoulder and the left hand on your

right shoulder. Breathe in and out, releasing

the area between your shoulder blades.

Cross your arms - for the shoulders and upper back

Extend one arm out straight in front of you.

With the other hand, grab the elbow of the

outstretched arm and pull it across your

chest, stretching your shoulder and upper

back muscles. Hold. Release. Stretch out the

other arm in front of you - repeat.

Stretch your back and shoulders with a “leg hug”

Sit on the edge of your chair (if it has

wheels, wedge the chair against the desk or

wall to make sure it does not roll). Put your

feet together, flat on the floor.

Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms

dangle loosely to the floor. Release your

neck. Now bring your hands behind your

legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm

(or elbow if you can reach that far), left hand

grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your

back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release

your hands to the floor again. Repeat three

times or as often as it feels good.

Look up to release upper body

Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch

your arms overhead and interlock your

fingers. Turn the palms to the ceiling as

you lift your chin up, tilt your head back,

and gaze up at the ceiling, too. Inhale,

exhale, release.

Excitement building along

with new campus

2018 edition

Enormous progress is being made in

the construction of a new campus for

Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley

Boys’ High School.

Some 5000 piles have now been driven

into the ground at the site in QEII Park.

The state of the art campus is on track

to be opened for term two of 2019.

Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume

expects the campus will become a

crucial asset for the east of Christchurch.

“Residents in the east of Christchurch

have long been calling for a new

high school, and the new campus

will be a place where the community

is welcomed. Many of our facilities,

including the sports facilities will be

available for community use,” says Sue

Hume.

Among the facilities are a Performing

Arts Centre with a 750-seat theatre, a

second smaller

100-seat theatre and three full-sized

indoor Gymnasiums.

Shirley Boys’ Principal John Laurenson

says the new school will be the ultimate

campus for providing high quality single

sex education.

“We’ll still be offering all the benefits of

a single-sex education, but our students

will have the advantage of being able

to learn and grow alongside students

from our partner school, in what will be

a truly incredible campus,” says John

Laurenson.

In the meantime, as work continues

onsite, the schools are gearing up for a

busy 2018.

The schools will make New Zealand

history in 2019 when they become the

first two single sex schools to co-locate.

Christchurch Girls

Last year our school was 140 years old

and in that 140 year history we have never

doubted what we stand for. We know

what we are. From our beginnings in

1877 we have only ever been a purpose

built school for girls. When our school

first opened on that September day in

1877 who could have envisaged 140

years later: three site moves, a number of

earthquakes, 13 principals and a fabulous

new building? In that time we have seen

the move from ink pens to ball points,

from blackboards to whiteboards to

laptops. It makes you wonder what the

future holds in store and how can you

prepare for what may or may not be? At

Christchurch Girls’ High School we work

hard to build capacity in our students so

that they are able to embrace the future

with confidence.

Students strive to pursue personal

excellence on the sporting field, in cultural

activities, through community service and

academically. They do so with energy and

enthusiasm, supported by an experienced,

professional and caring staff. We are

traditional in aspects such as uniform,

courtesy and the high expectations we

have of our students but innovative in the

wide range of opportunities we provide

both inside and outside the classroom.

Hence our vision: Embrace Tradition,

Embrace Innovation, Embrace Excellence.

Education takes us from darkness into

light.

2018 Pathways at Linwood College

Education is about the well-being of the

whole person and how developmentally

positive experiences enrich our

students’ understanding of who they

are and broaden their outlook. They

nurture students’ classroom focus by

contextualising their learning and sowing

the seeds of positive ambition.

Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed

curriculum’. This means the school,

students and families knowing:

1. Students’ prior learning and skills as they

come into LC from our partner primary

schools and building on these successes

2. How the learning at LC connects to

what the students want to do when they

leave school. “What are my post-school

pathways and how does my time at LC

help me achieve these pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the

individual and strengths-based.

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta.

Haere mai ki Te Kura Huruhuru Ao o

Horomaka. Warm greetings to the Hornby

High School community.

What an exciting year we have ahead of us

in 2018. We will move into the first two of our

new buildings around the middle of the year.

Our new gymnasium offers a second full

sized basketball court to complement the

court in the existing Gymnasium. It will also

contain a fitness and weights room (a new

addition for students) and teaching spaces.

Students learn best when who they are in

terms of language, culture and identity – is

affirmed. Enhancing the mana and dignity

of the individual is at the heart of Linwood

College.

Our school’s Year 7-13 curriculum creates

aspiration and community. There is

age-appropriate educational and social

continuity and multiple opportunities for

leadership so students excel and develop

independence.

At our school all students can make

their mark whether academic, cultural

or sporting and set their direction for life

after secondary school. An LC leaver is

confident and well-prepared for the future.

Our leavers continue to join thousands of

former LC students who have achieved

personal success both within New Zealand

and overseas.

The main building (the one you see from

Waterloo Road) will contain specialist

teaching spaces for technologies, visual arts

and sciences. It will also include our learning

commons, Whare, student cafe and wellness

resources, staffroom, and administration.

We all know of course that a school is much

more than its buildings, and a huge amount

of work has gone into adapting how we

cause learning.

The Manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create

Share), and the use of digital devices

(Chromebooks) is having a huge effect on

student achievement, with achievement

surpassing growth and improvement

nationally by a significant margin. We ask

all students to come to school equipped

with a Chromebook, apart from your time,

there is little better you can invest in your

child’s education than the purchase of that

Chromebook.

Junior students are increasingly approaching

their learning via real world contexts

(whether it’s the arts or business, or project

based learning designed to improve our

community in real ways). This is contributing

to improved engagement and improved

learning.

We are a very values based school, and our

students repeatedly show that they have a

heart for our values, for their community, and

for what is right.

What an amazing year we are going to have.

South New Brighton Primary School

children were delighted to see a Christmas

Sleigh in their playground area on

Wednesday morning.

There was much excitement around a

visit from Tony Simpson, the writer and

director of the newly released movie ‘Kiwi

Christmas’ and the sleigh from the movie.

Tony visited the school to share the

process of making a movie from

developing the idea, writing the script,

casting the actors and adding the special

effects. The children were in awe listening

to him and asked some fantastic questions

about the journey of making the movie.

The children from the Ruru and Kuaka

teams then got to sit inside the sleigh

that was used in the actual movie. Even

Principal John Bockett got in on the action

by sitting inside the sleigh and making

it go faster than the speed of light by

pressing the red button on the dashboard

of the sleigh! The children had so much

fun and loved enjoying the magic of a ‘Kiwi

Christmas’.

Villa Maria College

2018 edition

Hagley Community College

Villa Maria College is a state integrated

Catholic secondary school for girls in Years

7 – 13. The foundation for everything we

do is our Catholic faith, which we express

through our Mercy charism.

We aim to offer spiritual formation and

pastoral care in the tradition of Catherine

McAuley, and the Sisters of Mercy who

founded the College in 1918. This year we

turn 100 years old and will be celebrating

in style on 16,17,18 February.

Our Mission is to: “Empower each young

woman to determine her potential, live

Gospel values, confidently embrace lifelong

learning and as a Mercy woman be

inspired to make a difference”.

We have a proud academic history,

annually achieving academic results

which are among the best in the country.

Students set high goals and the College

supports them in striving for excellence.

Our most recent NCEA results included

pass rates of 93.5% at Level 1, 95.2% at

Level 2 and 97.4% at Level 3. UE 86.4%.

Villa Maria College offers many sporting

opportunities, our Sports Director coordinates

over 30 sports for girls to choose

from. It’s not surprising that we have

extremely high participation levels along

with impressive regional and national

successes!

The cultural life of the College is also

filled with extensive musical and choral

opportunities along with bi-annual

Productions and Stage Challenge entries.

We invite you to visit our Open Day on 8

May, 2018 and see for yourself our special

character. You will also find a wealth of

information on our website –www.villa.

Over 1,000 students enrol into Hagley

each year. They choose Hagley because

of the great choice of subjects and

the unique programmes Hagley offers.

Students go to Hagley because of the

way they are treated and supported.

Every student at Hagley knows that

it is cool to be different and they

celebrate this difference in a dynamic

environment.

With over 150 senior subjects available,

Hagley creates opportunities that you

never imagined were possible at school.

Imagine being able to be an animator,

a dancer, a scientist, a film producer, a

fashion designer, or a chef. At Hagley

large outdoor balconies. The main living level is a

dramatic and elegant space, with a formal dining

area and an enormous light filled lounge offering

impressive 180- degree views, and opens out to a

sun filled balcony. A guest bedroom has separate

external access and a connecting bathroom of the

highest standard. Storage throughout has been well

catered for with separate spaces designed to allow

you to keep the home in immaculate order.

area, a luxurious bathroom with built-in laundry,
