Plan to

road

• By Andrew King

ONE OF the city’s most

promising young surfers has a

big future ahead of him if recent

results are anything to go by.

Shirley Boys’ High’s Myka

Black (above) powered his way to

second in the under-14 section

at the national scholastic surf

championships in Gisborne after

winning a Canterbury title in

May.

His coach Aaron Lock said he

is one of the best surfers coming

out of New Brighton.

“He definitely has the talent

to go pro and had a really good

showing at the national event,”

he said.

a handy wave rider too.

Lock said Myka’s father was

one of the top surfers in the

South Island and was helping to

coach the Canterbury team.

A CRASH-PRONE road in North

New Brighton may be narrowed

to make it safer.

There have been 12 crashes on

Palmers Rd between Bowhill and

New Brighton Rds between 2005

and 2016, New Zealand Transport

agency data shows.

Now the city council is considering

narrowing Palmers Rd to

one lane in four places.

Public feedback on the upgrade

closed last week.

Narrowing Palmers Rd will

make it more pedestrian-friendly.

However, some on-street parking

will be lost.

Palmers Rd resident Nicola

Smith has experienced issues with

speed on the street before.

Miss Smith, who is a nurse, has

attended crashes on her street

during the four years living there.

She lives near the bend in the

road as it approaches Bower Ave.

SOBERING DETAILS on page

3 today showing the need for

emergency food supplies in low

decile schools has doubled over

the past six years.

No surprises the jump has

been particularly noticed in the

eastern suburbs. Linwood North

principal Sandra Smith says more

pupils are coming to school than

ever before without food.

It was never that way when I

went there. Mum would always

make sure we had our lunchbox

when she waved us off at the front

door.

But that was many, many years

ago and times have changed

dramatically – drugs, pokie machines

and the cost of housing eat

into the family budget.

The brakes are about to go on

that race track known as Palmers

Demand for emergency food increases

Families

struggle

in eastern

suburbs

SCHOOL FOOD charity

KidsCan says demand for

emergency food supplies in low

decile schools has doubled over

the last six years.

KidsCan chief executive Julie

Chapman said the percentage

of children needing food in

schools supported by the charity

has jumped from 11 per cent

in 2011 to 22 per cent this year.

Chapman says the jump has

been particularly noticeable

in the east of Christchurch

where at least 10,000 houses

were demolished due to the

earthquakes.

“Certainly the housing pressures

[in Christchurch] have

forced a lot of families into

situations where they’re sharing

houses and I think that, coupled

with increased cost of living, is

having a real impact.”

Linwood North School

principal Sandra Smith said the

stress on the local community is

acute and has resulted in more

pupils coming to school without

food than ever before.

“Things have become

exponentially more challenging

for families in the east of

Christchurch,” she said.

“There is absolutely genuine

poverty in this community that

can’t be helped by the families

that are living in it.

“It’s time for the rest of New

Zealand to really wake up to the

fact that many of our children

are not getting the lives that we

had when we were children.”

Ms Smith said she now relies

on food and clothing provided

by businesses and charities

like KidsCan to ensure her

students don’t go hungry

during the day.

TACKLING

HUNGER: Linwood

North School

principal Sandra

Smith said more

pupils are coming

to school without

food than ever

before.

“When you’re hungry you

can’t learn. So for some children

who come to school with no

breakfast or lunch we’re able to

provide the food. We’re filling a

real need,” she says.

KidsCan figures show the

charity now supports 700

schools and a record 30,000

children every week across the

country.

Funding gives confidence to plan ahead

Manager of the

Neighbourhood

Trust Ginny

Larsen writes

about how

three years

of funding

has secured the trust’s

future to the benefit of the

community

Funding – the very word is

enough to send chills up the

spine of most not-for-profit organisations.

As the manager of Neighbourhood

Trust, (the community arm

of St Albans Baptist Church),

a local not-for-profit working

mainly in the Mairehau, Shirley

and St Albans part of town, I

feel like half my life is taken up

with funding applications and

accountabilities.

So it is a nice surprise to have

some funders making the process

a bit easier by putting three-year

funding as an option.

This year both NZ Lotteries

and the city council, through its

community boards offered this

alternative.

And we are exceptionally grateful

to the Papanui-Innes Community

Board for its grant.

It must be hugely difficult

making decisions, especially as

the funds available to them have

been cut by $85,000.

So what does this mean for an

organisation to have funds guaranteed

for three years?

It gives us confidence to plan

and look ahead, to know we can

retain our wonderfully effective

staff and provide appropriate

training to keep them up-to-date.

It means we can continue to

offer our community consistent,

community-led work at a high

level to a variety of sectors – the

Golden Connections programme

for over-60s; from exercise classes

to community days; from free

English as a second language

classes to OSCAR programmes

to the Pay It Forward collective

of over 50 local designers, selling

their products through the store

at 49 Nancy Ave.

It also means we can dream

a little about working with our

community in different ways,

supporting and mentoring,

listening to their aspirations for

their whanau.

SEWING: Hannah Perry and her daughter Millie sew together one of the 300 bags which

community group Stitch-O-Mat hopes to create in order to cut down on plastic bag usage.

Community group leads effort

to replace plastic bags

• By Sophie Cornish

STITCH-O-MAT has opened

and is already making positive

contributions to the community

by sewing reusable bags.

Located in The Old School,

formerly Central New Brighton

School, the community group is

aiming to sew 300 reusable bags

to reduce plastic consumption.

Run by co-founders Bridget Allen

and Samantha Fay, the project

runs in conjunction with the

New Brighton FoodTogether hub.

FoodTogether is a collective of

organisations selling cheap fruit

and vegetables.

The New Brighton hub, located

at St Faith’s Church, is one of 40

distribution hubs in Canterbury

and offers a $12 bag of fruit and

vegetables, enough to feed a family

of four.

Ms Allen gets curtain material

cut-offs donated from businesses

such as Hubbers, Millers and

McKenzie and Willis.

Each bag requires 2m of material.

Ms Allen said for some it’s

more than just sewing a bag.

“The people that are coming

along to the workshops, it is more

than just sewing the bag, it is the

social aspect and bringing people

together,” she said.

“Some people are out of work

and just want something positive

that they could be doing with

their skills. A lot of people have

sewing skills but don’t really have

a reason to use them.”

Three years ago, Ms Fay

and Ms Allen worked with

students from Linwood College

to sew fairy dresses and capes

for children at Christchurch

Hospital.

Ms Allen hopes to start this

project up again with the opening

of Stitch-O-Mat.

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High

School mountain biking

coach Pete Beswick finally

has the trophy he’s been

waiting four years for.

The trophy was won by

his team of Shirley students

at the South Island mountain

biking championships

in Dunedin.

“I’ve been eyeing it up, it

is the fourth year in a row

that I’ve had my eyes set on

that trophy,” he said.

Five SBHS students

finished in the top 10 of

their individual categories,

generating enough points

for the school to finish

first with 1102 points. Mt

Aspiring College finished

second with 1057 points.

The overall individual

category included three

races – cross-country,

downhill, and ‘super-D’,

a less technical version of

the downhill race with

more pedalling.

Beswick said he has witnessed

a real growth in the

sport across the country

and within the SBHS.

“I started this club (at the

school) five years ago with

six people, now this year

we had about 35 people

sign up.”

Beswick said the competition

was met with thunder,

lightning, a downpour

of rain and “inches of

mud” on the first day of

competition.

SBHS student Indy

Hawthorne took the best

overall individual result

with fourth in the under-16

grade. He finished second

in the cross-country race, a

huge achievement, Beswick

said.

Principal’s Report

Kia ora koutou. Talofa.

Kia Orana. Malo e

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste and

Kumusta. Greetings to

our Community.

The content of this

page shows the busy

life of a NZ secondary

school. Education is

about seeing the whole person and how these

developmentally positive experiences enrich our

students’ understanding of whom 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’ past 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 LC learning help me to achieve these

pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the individual

and strengths-based.

Coast to Coast Update

Article by The Press’ Robert van Royen

– Sept, 2017 (paraphrased)

Six Linwood College pupils are competing in the

Tough Mudder event alongside Richie McCaw

in Auckland in November, thanks to iSport

Foundation and Coast-to-Coast Rangers.

Linwood College’s Mapu Uasi, Moahengi

Ngauamo, Juilan Elia-Lui, Tupito Saofai and

Kyle Amer couldn't contain their excitement

when they heard the news that they would

be competing. They will all do the 20km mud

and obstacle course, which is designed to test

physical strength, stamina and mental grit.

Connected to these student pathways are the

national development of Kāhui Ako-Communities

of Learning. Education, unfortunately, can have

its share of short-term fads, but Kāhui Ako are

not one of them. In fact, effective schools and

communities have taking this approach for

decades. Kāhui Ako are schools collaborating

to ensure that the student is at the centre of all

activity, not just in the individual school that they

are in at the time, but as students progress in

education from early childhood centres through

their schooling to tertiary and the workplace.

Linwood College is in two Kāhui Ako. Tamai is

the schools of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Ave,

Linwood College, Linwood North, Tamariki,

and Te Waka Unua. Aupaki is Heathcote Valley,

Linwood College, Lyttelton, Our Lady Star of

the Sea, Mt Pleasant, Redcliffs and Sumner.

One practical outcome already of our Kāhui Ako

has been a specific focus on enrichment with

students from our schools getting together

for very successful eight week enrichment

programmes in Maths, Debating, Pasifika and

with Technology to come.

Finally, schools can be complicated places. If

for any reason you would like to talk to me about

anything please contact the office so we can

arrange this. My door is open.

Ngamihinui – best wishes,

Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki (Principal)

McCaw's Foundation contacted Jess De Bont,

who is currently training the pupils for next year's

Coast-to-Coast and suggested the Tough Mudder

event to her.

"It's an amazing

opportunity –

once in a life time

stuff," she said.

“Auckland is a

really good lead

up for the Coastto-Coast,”

said

Jess De Bont.

Planting at Charlesworth Reserve

Linwood College’s Year 7 & 8 students did an awesome job during a day of

planting at Charlesworth Reserve according to Karla Guerin, the Kiwi Can

Coordinator from the Graeme Dingle Foundation.

Karla said that the planting day (late last term) was very hot and windy but

the students all persevered and gave it their best. She said that it was great

to see everyone fully engaged and work alongside each other with great

teamwork.

Cultural Festival

NZ Army Visit

College's Car Club

Linwood College students’ Car Club had a great

time at Ara Institute of Canterbury over Term 3,

learning about all things cars. Under the careful

guidance of Tutor Bernie Blanken, students

learnt how to change tyres, jump-start flat

batteries, strip down and rebuild a small fourstroke

engine, disassemble and reassemble a

gearbox as well as automotive welding.

Students thanked Bernie by buying him a big box

of chocolates at the end of the course.

Drama Review

Year 10’s mini production is going to

be #fairestofthemall. This story is

an adaption of Snow White with an

improvised and modern twist.

Masking Up

Part of the Year 9 Drama curriculum is to focus

on Drama technologies, so last term students

worked on Mask Making.

This is an important technology which has

links to Greek Theatre and Commedia

Del'Arte, both types of Drama which the

students will be researching when they get to

their NCEA studies.

Year 11's Tasha Matoe in

‘Harbouring Ghosts’, a play

about healing past mistakes.

'The Change Over' Review

As a Christchurch resident from the Eastern suburbs, the

movie ‘The Changeover’ is certainly well worth watching,

not just for its plot but for the visually striking scenes of

post-quake Christchurch. Aerial views show the lead

character’s home surrounded by a sea of vacant lots and

low-lying swampy stretches. Looking across to the city,

with randomly plonked containers and road works, these

scenes also tell part of our story. Linwood College is listed

on the credits as many of our students were acting extras.

Linwood College presented three cultural

Festival. Filipino students performed a sacred

dance which was followed by a Samoan dance,

‘Do it, do it’ siva.

The final item was

a kapa haka and

Clinic offers easy

solution to varicose veins

If varicose veins are a problem for you, the

dedicated, professional team at Transform

Clinic in Mandeville Street Riccarton can

provide the perfect solution.

Firstly, they will give you a free

assessment of your veins, and then suggest

the appropriate method of treatment,

depending on the condition of the veins.

There are two methods available –

endo-venous laser treatment, which is

used for both smaller and larger veins,

and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.

Both are easy and straightforward, and

you can be fully active immediately

afterwards, without needing to take any

time off work, or curtail your normal

activities. The only requirement is for you

to wear special stockings for two weeks

following treatment, and daily walking is

recommended.

Both these treatments give long-term

relief from the pain and discomfort of

varicose veins, and as Transform Clinic’s

Jenny Little points out, they have become

the treatment method of today, with

surgical removal of varicose veins now

considered obsolete.

Jenny advises having treatment as early

as possible when varicose veins start to

appear, as left untreated they may lead to

venous ulcers and venous eczema, although

if these have developed, Transform Clinic

can treat them as well.

Transform Clinic has an affiliation

with health provider Southern Cross and

relationships with several other health

insurance companies, which means you are

usually covered for treatment, providing it

is included in your policy.

Transform Clinic also offers a full range

of appearance medicine options, including

skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening

treatments designed to improve skin quality

and enhance self-esteem. They remove

superficial veins on the legs and face, and

also provide mole mapping, mole removal

and primary skin cancer removal. Their

website, www.transformclinic.co.nz, has

information on all the various treatments

available.

“We are a ‘one-stop shop’ for all cosmetic

medicine treatments,” says Jenny.

Transform Clinic is discreetly located

at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening hours

are Monday to Friday from 8.30am, with

late nights on Tuesday and Thursday,

and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone

343-2880 to enquire about treatments or

make an appointment.
