Call for

police

station to

stay open

longer

• Sophie Cornish

A CALL is being made for the

New Brighton Police Station to be

open on Saturdays.

The Coastal-Burwood

Communtiy Board has asked

police chiefs to open the Seaview

Rd station on Saturday morning.

The move is being backed by

New Brighton Business and

Landowners Association’s Paul

Lonsdale.

“There are concerns by businesses

that there has been an

increase of shop theft lately and

we have been in talks with police

on how to mitigate those issues

and find solutions,” he said.

Community board member and

city councillor David East said

police also needed to consider

opening longer on weekdays than

its current 9am-4pm.

City councillor Glenn Livingstone

said with the new beachside

playground and salt water hot

pools, increased police presence in

the area would be beneficial.

“Having them on site would

make a lot more sense.”

Currently police are required to

come from Papanui for call-outs

to eastern suburbs during the

weekends.

Inside

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

NEW BRIGHTON people want

the police station in Seaview Rd

to be open at the weekends (see

page 1).

And in my mind, there’s no reason

why it shouldn’t. New Brighton

and surrounding seaside suburbs

are an area in their own right;

different to other Christchurch

suburbs which roll into each other.

Brighton people have always

been very community-minded

and the Pages Rd bridge acts like a

border of sorts.

The Brighton police station used

to be open on the weekends (from

memory) and local police dealt

with local problems.

But centralisation, decentralisation,

and other ‘isations’ as different

police administrations changed

over the years has seen the station

become a fort, where messages are

left at the gate, and if there’s any

troops inside they might be called

out to fight the good fight.

Still no solution over midge problem

• By Sophie Cornish

ashion

A SOLUTION has still not been

found to eradicate Bromley’s

midge plague.

A meeting was held on August

7 between city council staff and

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board members aimed at finding

a solution.

The city council has spent

$800,000 over two years

unsuccessfully trying to fix

Gardening

the midge problem from the

Waitakiri School bake sale collars $607 for SPCA

PARENTS AND children at

Waitakiri School raised more than

$600 for abused and neglected

animals.

otoring

The annual SPCA cupcake day

took place on August 14.

An enormous $2 million has been

raised since the day first came about

in 2009.

People are encouraged to fundraise

by baking and selling cupcakes in

their schools and workplaces.

Pupils from Waitakiri School got

involved this year by selling and buy-

asty Bites

ing baked goods during morning tea

and lunchtime.

Along with a bed and food collection,

$607 was collected and donated

to the SPCA.

wastewater plant.

Nearby residents say they have

had enough of putting up with

midges over the years.

But a veil of silence remains

from the city council about what

has emerged from the August 7

meeting.

Community board member

Linda Stewart said her solution

– adding UV protection – was

discussed but won’t elaborate on

other possibilities.

City councillor Glenn Livingstone

refused to discuss the matter

with Pegasus Post, saying:

“It’s a complex matter and

not easily resolved and it’s

better if we assemble as much

information as possible before

putting it out there.”

Ms Stewart said her solution

would work.

“This should’ve been put in

place 20 years ago.”

She said in the late 1990s, the

South New Brighton Residents’

Association fought hard for UV

protection. But city council staff

said it would only be added if

needed.

The cost has now increased

from less than $5 million in the

late 1990s to an estimated $23

million, she said.

But Ms Stewart said UV

protection takes time, time

residents don’t have with warmer

weather around the corner.

Bus stops

at Palms

to double

• By Julia Evans

BUS STOPS outside The Palms

Shopping Centre are set to double

in size to accommodate the

number of passengers in the area.

The city council is seeking

feedback on the plan that will

see a suburban bus interchange

be put in outside the mall –

similar to the mega stop outside

Northlands Shopping Centre.

Although not to the same scale.

Two bus stops are set to be

upgraded, one on Shirley Rd

adjacent to Shirley Intermediate

School.

The second is on New Brighton

Rd outside the south end of the

mall.

The proposal is to extend the

painted on road bus stops to

accommodate two buses at the

same time.

City council staff said the

bus routes that service the area

are high frequency which often

results in two buses attending the

stop simultaneously.

“As each stop currently only

caters for one bus when a second

bus arrives it may overhang the

bus stop and can obstruct traffic,”

they said.

Smoke alarms need

to stay on the ceilings

Fashion


• By Mark Thomas - Specialist fire

investigator

WE HAD a fatal fire in

Christchurch last week.

So it was not the best week in

our office.

Part of what we do is to

constantly strive to prevent such

Gardening

things happening by ensuring

people have smoke alarms and

escape plans.

In the tragic loss in Cashel St

(right) there were some smoke

alarms.

They were correctly installed

but we don’t know if they had

been maintained.

The last one, still sounding

Motoring

when firefighters entered, was the bedroom where the occupant

was found.

But this one wasn’t on the

ceiling where the backing plate

remained.

It had been brought down too

low to give adequate warning.

Had the alarm just been left on

the ceiling, at the highest point

Tasty Bites

in the room, there’s a chance the

victim would have had time to

escape.

Such a little thing!

As always there were kitchen

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

fires last week.

At two of the four events,

people ended up needing

ambulance attention for smoke

inhalation.

Nearly always this is because

they have left the kitchen and

the cooking unattended and

returned to fire and smoke.

Then they desperately try to fix

a situation that is beyond them.

Stay in the kitchen!

Most cooking fires will be controllable

but only if you’re there

when they start.

There was a slightly odd fire

cause in Woolston on August

12 where a low sun through

the window reflected off a

magnifying mirror causing

curtains to start smoking.

This happens occasionally.

However, it’s one of those

things that most of us would

never consider.

Call for nominations

for road trauma awards

ORGANISATIONS and people

who deal with road accidents

will be recognised for their

work.

The Canterbury Road Trauma

Awards will be held at the Road

Accident Remembrance Day at

North Hagley Park on Saturday,

November 4.

Nominations for the awards

are now being called for.

Road Traffic Accident Trauma

Charitable Trust spokeswoman,

Sarah Dean, said the effects of

road trauma extends far beyond

the victims involved in the

initial incident.

The awards are seen as recognition

and acknowledgement of

this, she said.

There are three award

categories, Canterbury road

trauma award for public

service, trauma prevention and

community service.

The public service award will

be for outstanding individuals,

teams or organisations, who

will receive recognition for their

service and contribution to the

duty of care for those affected by

road trauma. This award is open

to first responders, industry

professionals from non-profit

organisations and private and

public organisations.

The award for trauma

prevention aims to recognise

winners for their contribution

to road safety, public education,

road trauma prevention

initiatives and duty of care in

Canterbury.

Those members of the community

who have provided care

or support to a road trauma victim

throughout their treatment,

recovery or rehabilitation will

also be recognised through the

community service award.

Nominations can be

made on the Road Traffic

SEMIS: Shirley

Boys’ High

will take on

Cashmere

High in the

Thompson

Trophy semifinal

tonight

at 5.45pm in

Cashmere.

Shirley Boys go into Thompson

Trophy semi as the underdog

• By Sophie Cornish

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School’s

senior basketball team will face

an uphill battle going into the

Thompson Trophy semi-final

against Cashmere High tonight.

Shirley made the semi-final after

a hard fought 94-84 win over

Ashburton College last week.

Cashmere beat Shirley, also

known as ‘The Spartans’, 91-53 in

round three of the competition,

handing Shirley one of only three

losses this season.

That gives them the underdog

status as they head to Cashmere

for the 5.45pm game, Shirley

coach Scott Howell said.

Good decisions and limiting

their mistakes will be key factors

in beating the stacked Cashmere

side, Howell said.

Shirley captain and standout

player Sean Kelly will lead the

team in the semi-final clash, with

one goal ticked off for the year by

making the semis.

Howell believes this year’s

team is very strong and has a

good chance of making the final.

They are looking forward

to pursuing their next goal

of qualifying for the national

tournament at the South Island

tournament in Dunedin from

September 6-9.

Cashmere coach Ben Sheat

said it was vital to stick to their

structure and continue to control

the defensive end if the team is to

beat Shirley.

“Lots of players have

contributed in different ways

to the group [this season] but

Connor Mclaughlin, Oki Tilaia

and Tom Russ-Hofmans have

been outstanding,” he said.

Cashmere beat Christchurch

Boys’ High 99-51 last week to

make the semi-final.

They are in the final after a

to get them home 40-34 after

trailing 29-12 at halftime.

The last time CBHS met

SPORTS

CBHS to defend UC title

• By Andrew King

CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High

are the undisputed champions

of girls rugby in the city after

clinching their third consecutive

UC Cup title on Wednesday.

The girls made short work of

Burnside-Rangi 36-7, running

in six tries on the Ilam Fields to

record their second consecutive

undefeated season in the UC Cup.

Their last loss was against

Motueka Girls’ High in the

Crusader regional playoff last

year.

Coach Jaime Livingstone

said it was rewarding to see

against Nelson and provided a

few moments of magic to help

the team get home.

The final will be played at

CBHS’s Straven Rd ground.

CBHS have made a bit of a

habit of going behind and then

making a comeback, but they

will look to correct that on

Saturday.

Timaru made the final after a

solid 24-10 over Christ’s College

in Timaru. Meanwhile, St Bede’s

will play Marlborough Boys’

College in the bowl final after

beating Shirley Boys’ High 36-33,

while St Andrew’s missed out on

a spot in the plate final after a 57-

14 defeat to Waimea Combined.

Girls’ High pull off three-peat

them enjoying their success

especially for the year 13s who

have been part of all three title

victories.

They will now look to add

a national title to the cabinet,

taking on Southland Girls’ High

on Saturday for the South Island

title. A win will qualify them for

the national top four tournament

in Palmerston North.

FERRYMEAD MITRE 10 MEGA

TRADE CENTRE, DIY

More products, faster service

Ferrymead’s popular Mitre 10 MEGA has expanded, with a

spacious, new facility opening this week for its trade and DIY

customers, and a new Landscaping Zone installed.

Located right next door to the current drive-thru facility, the

new outlet replaces the former Trade drive-thru, which has been

closed so earthquake repairs can be undertaken. This will be

reopened at a later date as a drive-thru and storage area.

The culmination of almost four years’ work, which involved a

complete fit-out to an existing building, the new 3200sqm premises

and drive-thru facility is 50 per cent larger than the current drivethru,

providing a much greater space for product display as well as

easier and quicker access for tradespeople and DIY customers to

purchase supplies.

Trade manager John Barltrop says the new space also makes

it easier for Mitre 10 team members to process orders efficiently

during busy periods, while continuing to provide a high level of

service for customers.

The space features wide aisles with an extensive range of framing

and finishing timbers, along with all the common wallboards and

fixings.

The other outstanding feature of Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead’s

new site is the outdoor Timber Yard and Landscaping Zone,

covering a further 7000sqm. This new area presents an extensive

range of Landscaping supplies and incorporates 19 bulk bins,

stocking a wide range of product including compost, lawn

mix, bark, aggregates and decorative stone, giving professional

landscapers and DIY customers plenty of options for their home

and property improvement projects.

Trailers are available free of charge to transport landscaping

purchases.

HIgH SCHooL

Encouraging ExcEllEncE in our community

The

Principal’s

Desk

Towards the future

Mairehau High School is in a strong

position to offer students opportunities

which will enable them to become

learners who are critical thinkers and

communicators, responsible and

empathetic, confident and connected, digitally fluent, and who embrace

challenges.

Teachers within our school are leading and developing key initiatives which

will provide students with the skills, capabilities and fluency to enable them

to be successful life-long learners in a digital world. In our school, we use

our head, heart and hands which enable us to describe the critical thinking

student who is numerate and literate; a student who can take responsibility

for their own learning and manage themselves. The students who pass

through our school gates, learn in our classrooms, and access technology

through our wireless internet provision, will be well set in the future to access

tertiary or employment opportunities.

Mairehau High School has implemented Modern Learning Practices through

the schools Year 9 and Year 10 flexible learning environment initiative this

year. our school continues to implement innovative and creative strategies to

support and enhance school improvement and student achievement.

To accommodate roll growth, a multimillion dollar building project is in the

planning stage to transform Mairehau High School, and ensure secondary

school co-educational school provision in the East of Christchurch. The

school is about to enter the design stage. At the moment, we are waiting on

key compliance reports to be completed before building can take place.

Christchurch East Secondary Schools

All Christchurch East Secondary Schools are passionate about improving

achievement and learning outcomes for all. Mairehau High School is

connecting and building relationships with Te Ara Tūhura, a cluster of Primary

and Early Childhood schools in the East. This cluster is focused on improved

outcomes for all our learners, in each of our schools. our school is also

very keen to continue to foster strong relationships with our local tertiary

institutions such as the university of Canterbury, Ara, Southern Institute of

Technology, and Lincoln university. I am confident in working with other East

Christchurch Secondary schools and education providers on the future and

quality of Teaching and Learning for our learners.

Acknowledgement

I take this opportunity to acknowledge Mr Mark Bell ( former Deputy

Principal) and to congratulate and wish him all the very best in his new

role as an Education Review Evaluator. Mark has contributed significantly

to Mairehau High School and we know that he will make a huge impact in

making a positive difference to many other schools in his new position.

Congratulations

We would like to congratulate our Deputy Principal, Mark

Bell, on his appointment to a position at the Education

Review office.

It was with great sadness, but with our very best wishes,

that we farewelled Mark at the end of Term 2. Mark had

been at Mairehau High School for over 14 years, and was

a highly respected and much beloved member of our

school community.

He was a wonderful ambassador for our school, always

championing us to the wider community. Mark believed in our school, and

believed in our students, always encouraging them to shoot for the stars and

have pride in themselves. It is fair to say he enriched the lives of many students

and staff in his time at Mairehau High School.

Mark was welcomed to the Education Review office in a dignified and moving

ceremony in Dunedin during the school holidays, with Harry Romana, the

Principal, and Rebecca Swanson, the Assistant Principal, travelling to support

him on behalf of the school.

We wish him all the best in his new position at ERo. Kia kaha, Mr Bell. go well!

Mark Bell

It is our pleasure to announce that after a rigorous recruiting

process, Ms Siobhan Murphy has been appointed to the

position of Deputy Principal to Mairehau High School.

Siobhan joins our staff in Term 4 as Deputy Principal from

Aranui High School, where she was Assistant Principal in 2016.

Siobhan’s association with Aranui High School began in 1989

when she accepted a Homeroom position, teaching a junior

class all their compulsory subjects, except PE. Further roles

at Aranui included HoD Social Sciences, Dean, Tutor and

more recently, the School garden’s chief gnome. Siobhan is very much looking

forward to reconnecting with ex-colleagues and students from Aranui who are

now at Mairehau High School.

Siobhan lives in Mairehau with her husband Andrew. Together they have two

children studying at university who they catch up with during holidays and

hear from when the fridge in their flat needs refilling. During winter the whole

family enjoys spending time together at Broken River Ski field.

This year Siobhan has embarked on a Masters degree as well as learning Te Reo

(Māori Language) which means her garden has been left to grow wild and due

to the lack of exercise, her dog Alfie is growing larger and larger. Focussing

on learning so intensely, Siobhan has found herself “walking in her students’

shoes” and she realises that being a student in 2017 can be very challenging

and exciting at the same time. The range of learning opportunities at Mairehau

High School encouraging passion and offering individual challenges to both

students and staff are what excites Siobhan most about joining us here.

Top Student Excellence Award

During the recent term break, Year 11 Student Cody McCallum

attended the Blue Light Youth Course run at the Burnham

Military Camp. Cody did extremely well on this and was awarded

the Top Student Excellence Award out of 30 students who were

on the course.

Cody has a definite career pathway in place – and we hope to

see Cody in a police officer’s uniform in the next few years.

Tena koutou katoa

At the end of Term 2, Mairehau High

School was represented at Ngā Manu

Kōrero - our regional Māori speech

competition for both the Canterbury

and West Coast regions, for the first

time in 6 years.

We were fortunate to have two of

our students stand to represent us

this year. We had Phoenix Neilson

represent us in the Senior Māori

section, and La Bella Currin-Waru

represent us in the Senior English

section. It was the first time both

students had ever stood to represent

at Ngā Manu Kōrero and did so in

front of all of the competing schools

in both the Canterbury and West

Coast regions. Just getting to this

point was an achievement in itself,

not to mention that both of our

representative students are in Year

11 and were standing up against

Year 12 and 13 students from the

other competing schools.

Both students did a great job and

represented our school with pride.

At the end of both speeches our

newly established kapahaka group, under the reins of our new kapahaka tutor

Miss Satriani Reihana, stood and performed our recently composed Mairehau High

School haka for the first time in a public arena, with great passion.

A lot of milestones were achieved that day.

Whaea Dayna

Hagley Dance Company

on the 10th of August Hagley Dance

Company came to our school to run a 90

minute work shop. This was offered to all year

11 - 13 Performing Arts students. It began

with a performance by the Dance Company

of a Maori inspired contemporary piece

which was incredibly moving. They then ran

a full muscle and bone warm up and then

everyone split into groups to learn some

contemporary choreography. This was great

for dancers of all levels and everyone came

away with a good experience.

Dance and Performing Arts at Mairehau High

School is thriving and continually moving

forward!

FLT (Flexible Learning Time)

Mystery dish

We recently had a visit from Canterbury university who delivered interactive lessons to

all Year 9 and Year 10 students in FLT (Flexible Learning Time). Students learnt about

water purification in developing countries and about the many economic and practical

issues which impact upon this. our students created water filters in groups and were

given budgets and materials in accordance with the nation they were allocated.

our Year 9 students also have a Life Skills class which

is covered in FLT. Some of the topics covered have

been gardening, how to change a car tyre, meditation,

driver education, cooking from a mystery food box and

problem solving.

Flexible Learning Time (or FLT) enables our students

in Year 9 and 10 to engage in personalised, crosscurricular

and real-life learning opportunities for 3

hours each week. The emphasis is on our students

choosing and directing their own learning journey with

the support of their teaching team.

Most recently our Year 10s worked on projects that

might contribute to their future career selection whilst

our Year 9s worked on projects that involved them

learning invaluable life skills, though generally not on

a school curriculum. Both projects involved students Learning to make water purifiers

embracing new experiences and extending their

knowledge, skills and thinking.

Smokefree Rockquest 2017

Rockquest was founded by two music teachers in 1988 (glenn

Common and Pete Rainey) and since then there have been

countless successes in its 29-year history such as Bic Runga, Anika

Moa, Nesian Mystik and our very own Mairehau High School

student band Falter, who were the National winners in 2003.

This year we had four entries with two groups and two soloists

carrying on our proud tradition. Entrants have to write and

perform original music.

This year we had the group, Heck, I Don’t Know – Ella Peoples, Rachel Wilson, Maddy

Bouma and Tammy Reynard, and soloist entrants, Rachel Nolan and Moeka Ishizawa,

and Darrell Faamau Suaesi in a group with his friends, who competed at the Aurora

Centre on Saturday May 27th.

We were really proud when Darrell and his friends from Haeata were chosen to go

forward to the Regional Final and even more so, when they were selected to go to the

National Final on Sept 2 in Auckland. good luck to you and the group Darrell.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

RSI, OOS or Gradual Process Injury

can be treated!

What causes OOS? The Department

of Labour states: “One of the

favourable explanations for OOS is

that it is caused by muscles being

held tense or tight for too long.’’

These conditions may be caused

by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions,

vibrations, mechanical compression, or

sustained or awkward positions.

The shorter and tenser the muscle, the

harder it pulls on the places it attaches to

(e.g. the bone). When this happens in the

forearm the pull at those attachments and

tendons causes irritation and inflammation

of those areas. This will be noticed as pain in

the elbow and wrist. When this happens in

the neck and shoulder area, it will be noticed

as local pain, stiffness and sometimes

headaches. The nerves run right through

the muscles. Tension on the muscles causes

pressure on the nerves. As the muscles

shorten, the nerves running through them

have a tendency to both shorten and slide

less well. This causes the nerves to radiate

pain throughout the arm.

Triggerpoints are areas in your muscles,

where a few muscle fibres have contracted

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Time Honoured Remedy

Supporting Your

Bowel & Digestive

Function Helps

Prevent Disease

Keeping your digestive system

and bowels functioning efficiently

is definitely an important step in

obtaining and maintaining good

long term health.

It is most important to keep the whole

digestive and elimination systems of the

body working efficiently. Many diseases

have been linked with micro-organisms

(virus) or a bacterial component. We know

that when the digestive system and bowel

function are poor we have many more health

problems. These include arthritis, digestive

problems like reflux and stomach pain,

bladder infections, chronic skin conditions

such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor

eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors

and a weakened immune system just to

name a few.

Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a

highly effective blend of natural herbs to

support the whole digestive system and it

is especially effective at cleansing the lower

bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly

used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea,

digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds

and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout,

skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis,

urinary infections, liver dysfunction,

Candida, weakened immune function and

for people who want to keep their health as

good as possible.

The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the

production of digestive fluids and bile for

efficient digestion. This alone may help

prevent many diseases as a properly working

digestive system will itself neutralise many

disease causing organisms. LBS II also

stimulates peristaltic action of the colon

effectively cleansing the colon of any

accumulated build-ups of waste material.

It also relaxes abdominal cramping and

spasms, enhances liver function, purifies

the blood, neutralizes acidic conditions,

helps destroy intestinal parasites and

worms, and fights infection.

Keeping your digestive system and

bowels functioning efficiently is definitely

an important step in obtaining and

maintaining good long term health.

LBS II and further information is

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

According to a country Doctor “D.C.

Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider

vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an

important part of a long healthy life. Dr.

Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly

consumed cider vinegar and honey had

excellent health with many putting in a

vigorous day’s work on the farm even when

well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider

vinegar and honey on arthritis can be

remarkable with many patients reporting

almost total relief after taking a course.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

honey at the onset of complaints such as the

common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic attacks,

hay fever, and childhood diseases such as

McKenzie Lifestyle Village is in the final

stages of completion. There are still great

sites available and we also have a number

of affordable villas ready for immediate

occupation.

Our beautiful Leisure Centre is available

and the pools, gymnasium and library and

lounge area are in use daily. Outside, the

bowling green is very popular along with

Petanque, Mini-golf and Table Bowls.

The residents enjoy an enviable resort style

lifestyle. It is also surprisingly affordable. A

former Christchurch resident, Judith, says

“We couldn’t have all this for what we are

paying if we were still in Christchurch.”

Another resident, David, says “my wife and

chicken pox and measles, was accompanied

by an improvement in the condition with

symptoms either disappearing, or the

conditions were extremely mild and soon

over.

Apple cider vinegar contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is

readily accepted by the body. Scientists

have found over 90 different substances

in ACV, among them 20 important trace

elements, minerals, essential enzymes, a

number of different acids including malic

acid, amino acids and roughage in the form

of potash and pectin. A scientific study at

the Shizuka University in Japan has proven

ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It

can destroy free radicals, which are a major

factor in ageing.) and also the ACV can

There are fuller testimonials on the village

homepage at mlv.co.nz.

Geraldine is a great little town with a

very pleasant microclimate. There is plenty

to do in and around the town with art

galleries, theatre and cinema, interesting

shops and boutiques, two museums and a

wide range of good places to eat. For the

more adventurous there are river and forest

walks nearby, opportunities for biking and

a choice of two local golf clubs.

break down cholesterol formations in the

blood vessels.

ACV and H is a powerful tonic that

also promotes digestion, assimilation of

nutrients and elimination of waste, and

helps neutralize any toxic substances that

enter the body.

It is important to note not all cider

vinegar is made in the traditional way and

results are likely to prove disappointing

with some other vinegars.

REAL ESTATE

Live an exceptional lifestyle

84 Harts Creek Lane, Clearwater, Harewood

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | Listing # PI48268

Elegant and intelligent design marks this

as a home for an exceptional contemporary

lifestyle. Designed by Architects Plus and

built in 2013, it offers the peace of mind that

comes with post-earthquake construction,

including RibRaft foundation and Celcrete

cladding. Occupying a prime setting, with

lake and golf course views, this tranquil

retreat is just minutes from amenities and

a short stroll from coffee at Clearwater

Resort.

Extensive glazing pulls light and views

into the home, and sliders in the openplan

living ensure seamless flow to a

choice of enticing outdoor entertaining

spaces. Equipped with a six-burner gas

cooktop, butler’s pantry and island bench,

the kitchen will satisfy the most exacting

requirements, while a spacious dining and

casual sitting area, plus additional separate

lounge (with gas fire), offer comfort and

flexibility. Sumptuous fittings in the master

bedroom, ensuite and WIR add everyday

luxury, while an additional downstairs

bedroom with ensuite is ideal for guests.

Three more double bedrooms (or an office/

den option with glorious views to the

mountains) share a smart family bathroom

with under-tile heating. Double internalaccess

garaging plus a generous storage

bay, beautifully landscaped grounds and

a suite of high-spec fittings complete this

impeccable home.

Presented in immaculate condition, this

property invites you to enjoy exceptional

living. The owners have committed to a new

building project and must sell their muchloved

home - don’t miss the opportunity to

make it yours.

Emma’s back!

THAT’S right folks, Emma Palaamo has returned to

the Richmond Club Bistro, and this time she is

running it!

Emma last worked at the Club when her parents

Bev and Steve Palaamo were running the Bistro and

Restaurant pre-EQ.

Unsure of what she wanted to do when she left

school Emma decided to attend university where she

earned a degree in English and Psychology.

“I’ve wondered if I’d ever use my degree, but I love

being in the kitchen. Cooking’s in my blood. It’s what

I’m used to,” said Emma.

Largely trained by her father, Emma said she was

nervous when she was initially offered running the

Bistro.

“My parents have such a good reputation and I don’t

want to let Dad down. The reaction to my menu and

cooking has been great, and regular members are very

happy to see me back.”

With her first few weeks spent gauging what diners

wanted, Emma is confident she has streamlined the

menu to provide a selection to satisfy everyone.

“I’ve listened to what they want and have taken

heed. by bringing back the old with new. I’m also

doing blackboard specials and two course specials, as

well as introducing a Kids’ menu.”

The Club Bistro is open for LUNCH Tuesday to

Sunday (Brunch), for DINNER Wednesday to Sunday

and is also available for private functions.

Greetings to our

Community.

Last year Linwood

College and a

group based on the East Christchurch

community centres undertook a major

community consultation about our

school. This opportunity to be involved

in the vision for the redevelopment of

Linwood College was whole-heartedly

embraced by the community. Over

1300 people responded with many of

these responses being face-to-face

conversations.

A variety of themes arose out of these

conversations with the dominant being

that:

Linwood College should nurture

personal excellence by providing

varied opportunities to meet

individual needs. The school should

foster a ‘love to learn’ culture that

creates high levels of achievement

and success in ways that are

accessible for all.

This theme drives everything that we

do and at present it is being applied to

how our students select their senior

subjects. Our own LC experience, that

of our families and whãnau and formal

research, all agree that for many

teenagers the process of selecting

subjects becomes more personally

important and meaningful when part

of considering wider career pathways.

This is why LC now calls our Years 7-10

curriculum the ‘Learning Pathway’ and

Years 11-13 the ‘Career Pathway’.

Yes, education is full of jargon but in this

case, there actually are some helpful

phrases that enhance understanding.

Two such terms are Backward

Mapping and UBD, Understanding

by Design. A useful overall summary

sentence is, “Start with the end in mind

and work backwards.” To support this

way of thinking we have redesigned

the Career Pathways booklet and

subsequent processes to link school

subject choices with pathwayunderstanding.

It is about positioning

teenagers to be future-focussed:

thinking ahead, playing to their

strengths and accepting challenges.

Ngã mihi nui to our community as the

positive activity of the year continues. I

am always keen to meet people if any

member of the community wishes to

talk to me about anything. My door is

open.

Gateway to our Future

Emerging Leaders

Last month the Samoan National Fagasa speech

competition was held in Woolston at the EFKS

church. Congratulations to Vai Mariner - 1st equal

for Year 13, Titi Ma Sun - 4th for Year 13 and Gloria

Su'a - 2nd for Year 11. This was an outstanding

result especially considering that they were up

against students from the Auckland and Wellington

regions!

This year in ‘Gateway’ Linwood College students have work experience in a wide

range of industries and have been gaining some valuable skills.

Health and Fitness

Year 13 students, Vanessa Franklin, Amber Taylor-

Jones and Tayla Spence receive certificates for

Advanced Customer Services, achieved through the

Gateway programme.

As the newly appointed Performing

Arts teacher, when I first came to

Linwood College I was quick to see

the wonderful talent that our school

had and sought a musical which our

students and families would enjoy.

Settling on a Maverick Musical called,

‘Wolfstock’ (written by Mary McMahan

with music by Donald Woodward),

this was the perfect challenge for our

students.

With time and practice the students

thrived in this environment and the

end product was exciting, funny and

dynamic. I am exceptionally proud of

my students and the effort that they put

in. To all the parents who transported,

waited, got up super early and gathered

costumes - thank you so much! We

could not have done this without your

support. I can't wait for the next one.

Mrs Boyce-Da Cruz

In early July, selected students

were given the opportunity

to attend the annual Christ’s

College Emerging Leaders’

Conference, along with

representatives from many

Canterbury schools. At this

conference many inspirational

speakers told their own

unique stories and passed

on quintessential advice for

Communities of Learning

aspiring young leaders.

Callum Lawson, said that the

day was an inspiration. His

favourite message was from

the speaker Joel Bouzaid, that

leadership is something that

you can own, something that

you can bend and mould to suit

your traits and strengths, so

that you can be the leader you

hope to be.

Callum Lawson

(Year 13)

Linwood College belongs to two Communities of Learning. Tamai is the schools

of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Avenue, Linwood College, Linwood North,

Tamariki and Te Waka Unua. The other is Aupaki: Heathcote Valley, Linwood

College, Mount Pleasant, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Redcliffs and Sumner.

We are very excited about the rich opportunities that lay ahead for our tamariki

within these learning communities or kãhui ako from early childhood through to

secondary school and beyond for many years to come.
