Survey suggests the annual fireworks event celebrates Matariki SHIRLEY PRIMARY School pupils had mixed reactions when they were given the opportunity to get up close and personal with crayfish. Teachers Chanelle Gleimius and Alana Cochrane said some children were interested in looking and identifying parts of the crayfish and others were a little “freaked out.” The visit from Theo’s Fisheries was part of inquiry-based literacy lessons about ocean creatures. The year 1 and 2 pupils have learnt about sharks, whales, crabs, seahorses and crayfish. ENTERTAINING: Year 1 and 2 pupils at Shirley Primary School had the opportunity to look at crayfish up close as part of an inquiry-based programme about ocean creatures.

The public was asked by Regenerate Christchurch to give feedback on 10 possible combinations of use for the red zone – including merging Avondale and Rawhiti golf clubs in Bexley. That would leave the way for the land at Rawhiti and Avondale to be used for housing. But, of the more than 1800 responses, less than a quarter mentioned the housing idea. Coastal-Burwood Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone does not believe Regenerate will go ahead with the land swap idea. “I think they will listen to the people . . . it’s too contentious and, although housing is my portfolio at council, community well-being is something that belongs to all of us,” Cr Livingstone said. •Turn to page 10 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
