Boycott ends cafe business

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A COMMUNITY boycott has

led to the planned shutdown of

the Te Hapua: Halswell Centre

cafe.

Last week, the city council announced

that a new cafe operator

would be sought to take over

from Wellington-based cafe,

Wishbone.

Wishbone is to leave the centre

after it came to a “mutual agreement”

with the city council.

In February, the Western News

reported that Halswell residents

had called for a boycott of the

cafe because it was not a locally

based business.

Wishbone general manager Jo

Parang said it had suggested to

the city council that it find a new

operator after public “backlash”

contributed to its business decision

to leave.

The Western News has learned

that the boycott has had a

large commercial affect on the

cafe.

Ms Parang said some residents

felt it was “quite unjust” that a

Wellington company was being

branded as local.

The Halswell Community

Project, which called for the

boycott, said it had highlighted

the importance of getting a cafe

operator more in

touch with the local

community.

the cafe, but “imagined” it was

operating at a loss.

The Halswell Community

Project believed the city council

should be supporting local business.

The city council declined

to comment on whether Wishbone

was being replaced due to a

boycott from the community.

cafe, including new furnishings

to make it feel more homely.

Milestone for community building

• By Tom Doudney

A CAMPAIGN to retain

a former children’s library

building for community use

will come full circle on Saturday

when it reopens as the Hoon

Hay Community Centre on

Saturday.

The volunteer-run library

on Hoon Hay closed in 2014

due to low patronage and the

city council was looking at

selling the building before

the Spreydon-Heathcote

Community Board arranged

public consultation.

The drive to keep it was

boosted by a strong community

response and a city council

analysis which showed there

wasn’t enough small meeting

space in the Hoon Hay area.

Hoon Hay Community

Association chairwoman Suzie

Sauer said it was hoped the building

would become a bit of a hub.

“That will be a really awesome

addition to our community I

think – somewhere that we can

hold events and that people just

think of as a place to meet and

learn things and grow and to

belong, really.”

A range of other groups have

expressed interest in using the

space including the Rowley

Resource Centre, a toy library,

a whitewater rafting club, an

Grace, Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board member Melanie Coker, and Lolina Avia will

be among those celebrating the opening of the Hoon Hay Community Centre this Saturday.

antiques and collectables club

and a post-natal depression

group, among others.

Spreydon-Heathcote

Community Board member

Melanie Coker, who was

involved in promoting the

retention of the building, said

getting this point had only

happened because of the hard

work of many people.

“I believe this opening event

is a milestone for Hoon Hay and

shows how a community that

works together for a purpose

can achieve outcomes that

at first may not have seemed

possible.”

She said there had already

been two community events

within the last six months with

more than 100 people attending.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

BLOOD SAVES LIVES

Steve Heap, at

McMaster & Heap,

has recently

performed 2 blood

transfusions in 5

days on young

dogs at the

Practice, both cases

in his own time.

This procedure

isn’t common

practice but when

you have a patient presented pale,

collapsed and bleeding out essentially, you

have to be geared up to immediately transfuse.

You also need a capable skilled team around

you as this isn’t a one person

job as you’ll see below. A blood

transfused patient needs to be

intensively monitored by a nurse to

make sure we don’t get transfusion

reactions ( ie tremors, vomiting,

labored breathing, swelling and skin

reactions, seizures, coma or cardiac

arrest). The important things are

having a team capable of performing

the transfusion and closely

monitoring the patient for reactions.

“Poppy” the Hungarian Visla made

a full recovery after her near death

experience of ingesting rat bait.

“Bella” the Airedale unfortunately

wasn’t so lucky. She initially improved,

but after a few weeks of intensive care

and huge amounts of love, was very sadly put

to sleep after complications with her kidneys.

This article is specially dedicated to Bella.

Obviously both cases required blood fast.

A dog can take another dogs blood ONCE

without being cross matched to check blood

type. We obtained 500mls of blood and 200mls

of plasma for Bella from the After Hours clinic

on a Sunday and Steve obtained 400mls of

blood from Clive, a German Short haired

pointer, for Poppy. We have the transfusion

bags and filters at work and the blood is

delivered slowly via IVF pumps over 2-3 hours.

A vet must sit with the patient the entire time

and monitor vitals. The blood is delivered via

large bore catheter into the cephalic vein. Both

dogs accepted the procedure

well – admittedly both

were very ill.

Having blood readily

available is helpful. We

didn’t but luckily were

able to source it fast. In

the past I’ve used Lola

for obtaining blood

from but since she’s had

cancer and received

chemotherapy, she now

isn’t a suitable candidate.

Six year old Bella presented initially for

unexplained bleeding from her bowel. After

a lengthy work up involving blood testing,

radiographs, abdominal ultrasound, bladder

catheterization and intensive care monitoring,

she deteriorated quickly and needed a blood

transfusion in the hope it would save her

life. She was losing large amounts of blood

from her urinary system and large bowel. Her

kidneys were failing, she was depressed and

inappetant. Despite intravenous fluids and

over 10 different medications she was still

deteriorating. We still don’t really know what

caused the huge blood loss but the transfusion

initially helped, providing her with clotting

factors, blood and an immune system to fight

whatever was going on.

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

Poppy, the 14 month old Visla, knibbled on

RAT BAIT 3 days before presenting near death.

This poison destroys platelets and coagulation

factors and causes their victims to bleed to

death because they can’t clot blood. Within

hours Poppy would have died due to blood

loss into her chest, preventing oxygenation and

ventilation. She presented collapsed, was as

white as a sheet and in total respiratory distress

– she couldn’t breathe at all. Our amazing

team moved quickly, calling in Steve and Kirsty

who worked together over 4 hours – Kirsty

draining the blood from her chest ( the blood

was around her lungs) and Steve transfusing

her with Clive’s blood. She was monitored by

two nurses throughout

the procedure.

Her recovery was

instantaneous – after

being transfused she

basically leapt into the

back of the car, totally

transformed. She was

monitored carefully

at the After Hours

clinic that evening

and returned to us the

next day.

These two cases

highlight to me the

need for speed and

urgency in seeing

these cases ( whether

it be late at night or over a weekend),

dedication to our patients, commitment to our

clients and skilled and passionate professionals

prepared to go the extra mile. Our nurse took

the call from Poppy’s owner seriously, late on

a Thursday night when we were getting ready

to close. At that stage we had no idea Poppy

had ingested rat bait. She was just quiet and

very lethargic. Not the norm for a 14 month

old Visla! Our nurse also asked the colour of

Poppy’s gums and was told they were white!!

This raised alarm bells. Our consulting vet that

night was fully booked until 7pm so our nurse

called Steve, who immediately responded to

the call.

A special mention must be made to the

dedicated clients who trusted in us and

allowed us a chance at saving their dogs by

giving blood, which in itself isn’t without risks.

When we undertake a transfusion, we have

no real idea of outcome but we all do our very

best. Our patients all deserve a chance.

Dr Michele McMaster

This is specially dedicated to “Bella” who

was so stoic and fought so hard to make a

full recovery. She was a patient I’ll never

forget. No matter how sick she felt, she

always had a tail wag for me. She was

kind, trusting of us all and brave until the

end. Not being able to pull her though

affected us all. RIP dear Bella. You are

never forgotton.

Low cost fruit and

vege plan spreading

• By Tom Doudney

A SOCIAL enterprise

supplying low cost fruit

and vegetables which

started in Bryndwr has

and is now spreading

around the country.

Reverend Craig Dixon

started Food Together as

co-operative about

“It started as a need in an

area of kind of low socioeconomic

income and a limited

food products,” he said.

After operating the

single hub in Bryndwr for

Giving young people a good name

HELPING CHILDREN who

addiction is just one of the

reasons Tasharn Rangi was

awarded a Canterbury Youth

Action Award.

The 16-year-old was

recognised for her work as a

volunteer with Familial Trust

and coaching an under-13

netball team.

The Familial Trust treats all

types of addiction, including

eating disorders, gambling, sex

addiction and obsessive working.

It opened in 2002 and will

celebrate 15 years of service to

the community in November.

Her award was described as

the “giving youth a good name

award”. It signifies her tireless

effort to actively get involved

and commit her time and energy

to making a significant impact

in the community.

On the night, there were 23

individuals and four groups

Mobile plan

for computer

training service

• By Tom Doudney

A SPREYDON-BASED charitable

trust which helps provide

computer and internet access

and training is looking to take its

services on the road.

Addington.net is looking to

start a new initiative where its

members travel around the city

to help the staff and clients of

not-for-profit, non-governmental

organisations improve their computer

skills.

The trust moved from Spreydon

St to a new location on Barrington

St in December. Previously, it was

based on Lincoln Rd for many

years.

Addington.net community liaison

co-ordinator Lynda Sawyers

said the initiative had come about

after chairwoman Wendy Butcher

carried out a research project to

determine if there was still a need

for the trust’s services.

“She talked to many organisations

and people to get an idea

of what their needs were,” Ms

Sawyers said.

“She found that yes, there is still

a need for what we do, but rather

than expecting people to come

to our site, there is a need for our

service to become mobile and for

us to go to other sites.”

Bringing experimental artist’s work

Alex O’Keefe

Canterbury University’s Alex O’Keefe, 28, is bringing

to life one of the artworks thought up by Len Lye, a

Christchurch artist known for experimental films and

kinetic sculptures. Hannah Samson-Barry chats to

him about motor-cycle racing and skateparks

Tell me a little about your role

at Canterbury University.

I work in the field of

mechanical engineering research

at the university. Part of this role

is a small amount of teaching

and mentoring. I really like

working at UC because of the

exposure to a wide range of

different fields of study in such

close proximity, its a 5min walk

from fine arts to firing lightning

bolts in the electrical engineering

department.

You made the move from

Queenstown? Why the shift?

I came to Christchurch because

after working for a year in

Queenstown after I finished high

school I realised that I wasn’t doing

anything with my life, so my

parents suggested engineering as

a pursuit. Canterbury University

had the best reputation in New

Zealand and it’s reasonably close

to home. So I enrolled for first

year engineering and moved up

here.

Can you tell me about life

before you became a doctor,

what was it like growing up in

Queenstown?

Queenstown was a crazy place

to grow up. It’s the adventure

capital of New Zealand so it was

a lot of fun. Small town vibes but

with more of a city feel so we got

the best of both worlds. It’s safe

and fun and great.

How did you get into mechanical

engineering, so you

mentioned your parents?

Yes, my parents recommended

it as a course of study. I had

no idea what it was other than

basically building bridges. After

the first year of engineering you

figure out what the different

disciplines are and mechanical

engineering was a fit in terms of

the fact that I like solving practical

problems and working with

my hands and doing projects.

How did you first become

involved with Len Lye’s work?

After I finished my degree I

was looking for employment

as a mechanical engineer and

I was obligated to be in the

city at the time but none of the

HANDS-ON: Alex O’Keefe has taken up the challenge of

jobs that I could find I found

enough interest in or thought

I’d be happy there. I looked at

the postgraduate curriculum at

Canterbury University and one

of the projects that was offered

was this Len Lye project that I

work on and to me that sounded

like the biggest challenge I could

imagine. So that’s the first time I

heard of Len, I researched him,

figured out who he was and his

background and decided that

this was the project for me.

How is it bringing these great

ideas and designs to life?

Len Lye projects are fascinating

to work on because part of it

is that you get to search through

all of his notes, drawings and all

of the material that he produced

on an artwork.

Things that other people never

get to see. You get to work with

small models that he made so

then your job as an engineer is to

translate all of these intentions as

an artist into a piece of art that

he would have been happy with.

So it’s inspiring as you get to

see subtleties of the reasons why

he wanted this motion because it

had these intricacies and chaos

in there that was so exciting. So

when you find these things out

and come to understand what

Len was trying to create it’s really

fulfilling when you get to

that point when you’ve worked

towards an art piece that will be

a Len Lye artwork.

It’s also kind of stressful because

Len gives you these crazy

challenges where he says shoot a

30m lightning bolt across the sky

and I want things to lift up 100m

into the air.

So he was limitless in his imagination

but as an engineer you

are very limited in what you are

capable of so you have to come

up with clever ways that you can

bring to life Len’s ideas, even

though they were grand scale

and crazy.

to life through engineering

Why do you persevere with

these projects?

That’s a really good question.

Something I ask myself and

I have no answer too. I guess

because we are working towards

a goal and I can see the end

result, and the end result is that

we get to share Len Lye who is

one of New Zealand’s and the

world’s most renowned artists

of the 20 th -century. We get to

share these visions that he had

with everyone and show why this

guy was such a spectacular and

inspiring artist. So I see the end

goal as being a really fulfilling

result of these projects.

After spending so much time

there, what do you think of

Canterbury University?

I do think it’s quite a spectacular

place and I do think the

pursuit of engineering, whatever

discipline it might be, or the

sciences for that matter is the

best pursuit for anyone who is

mechanically or scientifically

minded. By going through the

engineering courses at Canterbury

you not only give yourself

the skills, and technical skills

you get from the course, but it

gives you a new analytical way of

looking at your life and it allows

you to take on projects outside

of work like motorbike racing

which I would have never done

without being at Canterbury

and understanding that you can

achieve these things and these

people that do them, they are not

this tier above, your just being

confident enough to tackle these

problems.

Do you get any down time

when you’re not working on

these projects?

Yes I have down time. But in

my down time I like to work on

other projects. I treat these projects

as a job but outside of that I

have time to skateboard and ride

motor-cycles and pursue other

interests of mine.

Tell me more about the

motor-cycle racing, how did

that begin?

Being in the mechanical engineering

department engines and

motor vehicles are an integral

part of that whole course and

community. So I was placed in an

office with two other motor-cycle

racers and as with anyone that

seems to be with the engineering

department post-grad they were

infectiously enthusiastic about

the sport and it rubbed off on me

SPEED: Dr O’Keefe racing the yellow Yamaha at Mike Pero

Motorsport Park.

and I got tricked into being part

of it. No regrets at all.

What’s your motor-cycle of

choice?

FXR 150 small cubic capacity

race bike called a bucket. Because

bucket racing is heaps of fun.

What is your favourite place

to go on your motor-cycle?

Up the Summit Rd and around

Godley Head in the summer,

or at the Mike Pero Motorsport

Park (Ruapuna).

How about skateboarding,

didn’t you help bring about a

new skatepark in the city?

As part of a marketing campaign

an American company

Levi’s and Monster Children sent

their professional skateboard

team to Christchurch to help

build a new skatepark for the city

which had suffered from the major

earthquakes. So they linked

up with me and a bunch of other

local skateboarders and we got

together with the youth and we

built a small DIY skatepark at

the stockyards, so give something

back to the community.

They gave something back, I

just helped. It is there to be used

for everyone and we encourage

anyone to maintain or improve it

as they wish.

What are the best places to

skate?

Christchurch is a great place

to skate due to wide range of

small skateparks in the wider

city. Templeton, Rolleston,

Belfast, Leeston, Kaiapoi all

have relatively recent skate parks

which offer a diverse range of

things to skate. These small

community initiative skateparks

are a great thing for kids and big

kids alike.

What do you think of

the new school?

Port Hills Labour

MP Ruth Dyson

says people should

have their say on

how they would

like Linwood

College to look

like in five years

time, with a whole school rebuild

planned

MANY OF you will have noticed

billboards around our suburbs talking

about a new school coming – have your

say. And you may have talked with people

at one of our markets, outside the

supermarket or at meetings about this

new school.

This project is one of the best examples

of collaboration and taking an

opportunity for improvement that I

have seen.

It is called the legacy project and is taking

a very frank look at Linwood College in the

future, the fact that it now has a new principal

who is very community-focused and

outward looking, and the complete rebuild

of the school which will be under way soon.

The project asks the questions about

what people think of the school, what

they would like to see from the school,

and what it should look like in five

years’ time.

The community consultation has been

fantastic, with many parents who are

looking at colleges in the future, coming

along and having their questions

answered in an honest and open way.

We all know that there have been problems

at Linwood College over the last

few years. But we know that it has an

excellent provider of quality education

for many local children and with the

right leadership, can become a school of

choice. The fact that it will be brand new

is an added bonus.

It is a huge opportunity for our communities

to have their say and be part

of making the new high school a place

for of opportunity. All our children and

young adults deserve the best possible

education. This is an exciting piece of

work that will deliver that in our community.

If you haven’t been part of the

discussion yet, it’s not too late. The

community meetings have finished but

you can share your ideas online www.

Help build a great school for our

future leaders.

Readers respond to last

week’s Southern View

article about businesses

opposing the loss of car

parks on Ferry Rd, part

of a city council plan to

revitalise the area.

Michael J. Brathwaite,

of Spreydon – Regarding

the council’s plans for the

Woolston village, when

will the fools who came

up with these crazy ideas

get it into their thick heads

that people go to shopping

centres to buy things, put

them in their cars, and

drive home?

No-one goes to such a

place to admire trees or be

impeded by median strips

and other obstacles on the

roads – all without averting

one’s glance from one’s

speedometer. How do they

expect to revitalise the area

while doing all they can to

make people stay away from

it?

An April magazine

article by architect David

Sheppard confirms what

we’ve long suspected, ie

that public consultation “is

generally token only and . .

. carried out once key decisions

and strategies have

been made by those leading

the charge.”

I’ve lodged submissions

against many plans such as

GOING: A

the Woolston one, but they

have always gone ahead

anyway.

To support their case, I

imagine the traffic engineers

did their survey of the

demand for parking in the

area in the middle of the

night.

Steve Muir, of central

city – I strongly support the

plans to move car parks off

the road though Woolston.

Evidence shows a good

cycle lane though there will

likely improve business,

not reduce it, and business

owners need to get out of

the ‘car parks outside equals

money’ mentality.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Parents of Year 6 students are

encouraged to take a good look

at their child’s full primary school

when choosing schooling for

2017.

Why change schools when you don’t

need to? Full Primary schools are tried

and tested and have developed in

innovative and cost effective ways since

their inception in 1877. They are as

important to the provision of education

in 2017 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful?

• They have evolved over time and have responded to the

different demographic changes since 1877.

• They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for

families and respond to community needs.

• They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know

curriculum levels from Level 1 – 5 who have had the same

teacher training as teachers in other Year 7 and 8 school

types.

• Teachers in the student’s current full primary school

know about individual students learning progress and

learning style from Year 1 – 8.

• Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture,

innovation and child centred learning sum up full primary

schools.

• Year 7 and 8 students are the leaders and role models

along with the adults in a full primary school with

opportunities to nurture Year 1 – 6 students.

• School organisation in a full primary school fits the needs

of students not the timetable.

• All Year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership

opportunities, sporting opportunities, school community

job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model

expectations. They are seen by others in the school as

the leaders and younger students look up to them.

• These opportunities and strategies to build leadership,

key competencies and resilience are available to all Year

7 and 8 students in a full primary.

Lincoln Primary

What does the research tell

us about the learning needs

of Year 7 and 8 students?

• Curriculum that is relevant, challenging,

integrative, and exploratory

• Multiple learning and teaching

approaches

• Assessment and evaluation programmes

that promote quality learning

• Organisational structures that support

meaningful relationships and learning

• Educators who value working with the

age group

• Courageous, collaborative leadership

• School-wide efforts and policies that

foster health, wellness, and safety

• Multifaceted guidance and support

services

• School-initiated family and community

partnerships

Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school

type or school buildings that make the difference for Year

7 and 8 students. It is instead the innovative approach to

learning and the attitude of professionals toward this group of

students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the

leadership, teachers and non-teaching staff are committed

to the social and emotional development of this group of

learners. Full Primary Schools are providers of Year 7 and 8

education in every way that other types of schools are.

And also

The research also provides insight into

what works for Year 7 and 8 students:

Ministry of Education by Dinham and Rowe

of the Australian Council for Educational

Research. 2007

• From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’,

there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching

which students receive at all levels and stages of

schooling is of major importance in influencing

achievement outcomes for students.

• While productive and positive student-teacher

relationships are identified as an important

characteristic of highly performing schools

catering for middle years’ students, it needs to be

acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders

at all levels of schooling is what works.

• It is therefore debateable whether at least some

aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle

schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and

effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling

approaches focusing on quality teaching and

enhanced learning’ rather than on school type.

Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to

support learning and what happens across the school

to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive,

physical, emotional and social needs of Year 7 and 8

that makes the difference. Not school type.

The research on middle schooling and its implications

to provide quality education to Year 7 and 8 students

is as applicable to full primary school as it is for other

schooling types.

Christchurch Intermediate

Schools

Specialists in Year 7 and Year 8 Education

OPEN NIGHTS 2016

Intermediates are two year

coeducational schools specialising

in the education of students in their

early adolescence, 11-13 year olds.

Intermediates are exciting places for students to

begin their adventure into adolescence. In addition

to providing a rich, age and stage, middle-yearsspecific

curriculum in a stimulating, challenging and

rewarding environment, intermediates cater for many

interest groups and clubs.

Early adolescence is a unique and

special time of immense physical,

intellectual, emotional and social

development. These changes create

specific needs and challenges that

are significantly different from

the needs of younger children or

older adolescents. Teachers in

intermediate schools are highly

qualified, experienced and skilled

teachers of students in their early

adolescence. Our teachers establish

strong relationships and particularly

enjoy working with this age group.

It is not surprising that New Zealand and overseas

research concludes that the quality of teaching is

one of the most significant factors influencing how

well students learn at school. Given that quality

teaching occurs in most New Zealand schools

regardless of their type, it’s only natural to consider

other factors that might make a difference for early

adolescents.

The young people at intermediates are changing

rapidly – physically, emotionally and socially.

Intermediates focus solely on this age group and

are well positioned to meet their needs. A mix

of specialist and home room teachers helps to

provide the choices, challenge, love for practical

activities and academic rigour in the students’

learning. Resourcing, both human and physical, that

is developed deliberately to meet early adolescent

student needs, helps to build self esteem, assist

students to develop and find strengths and links

learning with career aspirations. Teachers who are

focussed solely on the middle years are able to work

collaboratively to provide level-appropriate engaging

Our aim is for all of our students

to leave our intermediate schools

feeling confident in themselves

as successful learners and well

equipped with the knowledge, skills

and attributes needed for high

achievement not only at the next

stage of their formal education but

as life long learners.

programmes that connect learning to students’ lives

and interests and provide challenge for all students

to achieve to the best of their ability.

Current intermediate school students list these

points:

In particular, early adolescents

enjoy learning that is authentic and

meaningful to them in an environment

where they have choice and a real say

in what and how they learn. Students

enjoy the challenge of new and

different learning opportunities that

are provided by specialist teachers in

technology, science, performing arts

and visual arts. There also remains an

emphasis on continuing to develop

skills to a high level in literacy and

mathematics.

1. “There are more children of my own age here

because our school takes all the year sixes from a

few different schools and they come to one school.

And because we’ve got bigger numbers of pupils

we can have more sports teams and … there’s

something for everyone” Y8 child

2. “Our school has different specialist teachers for

subjects like music art, P.E. and technology, so we

get used to that – which is good preparation for

secondary school” Y7 girl

3. “At intermediate school everything is for our two

years (age group).” Y8 girl

4. “I like that we don’t have to look out for little

children. That was neat at our old (primary) school

but it’s nice to just have our own age here. Y7 boy

Intermediate schools work very

closely together to collectively provide

a wide range of extracurricular

opportunities for students. For

example, there are a number of interintermediate

sport competitions such

as swimming, winter sport, summer

sport, athletics and cross country.

5. “It’s good that we don’t have big secondary kids

here. We can worry about them when we’re older…

and then we’ll be big too. Y8 boy

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Scheme Helps Pasifika

Tradespeople Succeed

every year ara institute of Canterbury offers Pasifika Trades Training

scholarships for anyone of Pasifika descent to train in trades fees-free.

The iniTiaTive was created to

help Pasifika people contribute to the

rebuild of Christchurch and is run in

collaboration with leaders from the

Pasifika community and government

agencies with Pasifika church ministers

playing a key role in nominating people

and offering pastoral support.

Because everyone is different, there

are a number of options and pathways

available to help Pasifika men and women

start a career in the trades. To make

sure every student succeeds, support is

available from the Centre of Māori and

Pasifika achievement, with pastoral care

advisors helping not only with study

matters but with anything that impacts on

students completing their studies.

Trades training has evolved and that’s

good news for learners. Classroombased

theory sessions are being phased

out in favour of shorter, more frequent

theory sessions in new workshops so

that students can practice what they have

learned straight away. The new style will

suit many Pasifika learners, especially

those who would rather be using their

hands than sitting for long periods of

time.

ara recently upgraded the trades

training facilities with $18.9 million of

government investment so that workshops

are even more like what students will find

out in their industry.

ara has close connections with

employers and the programme is designed

to get graduates out working in industry

after they graduate.

Mid-year intake is now open with July

starting dates for electrical engineering,

Fabrication, Furniture and Joinery,

General engineering, and Plumbing.

Carpentry, Painting & Decorating and

Plasterboarding start again in august.

if you know someone who would

benefit from getting a head start on a

career in trades and they are Pasifika,

WOOLSTON Brass are

heading off to Napier to

compete in a national

band championship next

month.

This is not the first time

the band has competed in

the National Brass Band

Championships. They’ve

won the competition 24

times since 1967.

As part of a warm-up to

the competition Woolston

Brass are hosting a concert

on Sunday to showcase

their talent and to celebrate

their 125th birthday.

Part of celebrations will

also include releasing their

sixth album.

Woolston Brass was

established in 1891 and

over the years they have

competed in numerous

competitions, performed

hundreds of times and

released five albums.

The latest album titled

The Woolstonian will go

on pre-sale at the concert.

It features classical pieces

such as Jason Katsikaris

and the Leyland Band’s

Visions of Kolkhis. The

album will also include

a march written by New

Zealand composer Kenneth

Young who wrote it

especially for the album.

“It is a huge honour for

me to be asked to write a

march for the band I grew

up playing in which has

given me so much musical

pleasure,” Mr Young said.

The album was funded

by a Boosted Campaign,

which helps artist and

groups raise money

through public funding

and donors.

Over two and a half

months the band prepared

to record the album,

practising two nights a

week. The 10 track CD

was recorded over one

weekend at Orange Studio

in Ferrymead.

Digital Technologies at

Mairehau High School

Digital Technologies Design, and Visual

Communication and Workshop Materials

are the learning teams that are involved in

the initial stages of a project to build two

weather stations in separate locations.

The first challenge for term one was

to use the project plan for the school’s

STEM project as a basis to design a Year

11 Digital Technologies course that met

the individual needs of the students,

curriculum delivery requirements and

NCEA assessment requirements. It’s a

popular course, with enthusiasm for it

fuelled by the work students do in this

learning area in the junior school.

The students opting for this course

have a range of skills and abilities.

Individual courses were designed to

establish the base skills needed to begin

the construction, and programming of

the electronic system that will measure,

record and display weather data.

The main emphasis for the first term

was to establish a suitable level of coding

skills in all the students. The learning

progress has enabled all students to be in

a position to participate directly in the

coding of the electronic recording system

for the Weather Stations.

Some students are operating at the

higher skill level and they will write the

code to drive the dynamic data driven

website that will display the data. These

students will be assessed against Level 2

NCEA standards.

Electronic systems have been the

focus of learning and assessment this

term. Arduino boards have been used

to construct small to medium sized

projects. These projects enable students to

understand the electronic componentry

needed in the construction of the weather

stations.

New Christchurch schools

to offer students more

AVoNSIDE GIrLS’ and Shirley Boys’ will

be the first single sex secondary schools in

New Zealand’s history to share a campus

– an arrangement their principals say will

enable the schools to offer their students

new opportunities.

The schools are to be built on part of

QEII Park, next to the Christchurch City

Council’s Eastern recreation and Sport

Centre.

Avonside Girls’ High School Principal

Sue Hume says the campus will be brand

new and state of the art.

“Each school will have its own teaching

spaces and students will spend most of

their day in a single sex environment.

That’s important to us. research shows

that single sex education benefits both girls

and boys…boys do better academically

and girls participate more. That’s because

they have space to learn and focus away

from the opposite gender,” says Sue Hume.

John Laurenson says the new campus is

a step forward.

“Because we are going to work together,

we’ll be able to offer more. For example,

we’ll be sharing some facilities, including

a performing arts auditorium, theatre

and cultural space, which enables us to

build bigger and better assets,” says John

Laurenson.

Another benefit is that the students

will be able to interact with and learn

alongside peers from their partner school.

“Students from both schools will share

buses to and from the campus, they’ll all

be able to use the café, our new library

and learning centre and our other shared

facilities. This means that not only will

they have all the benefits of a single sex

education, they’ll have social opportunities

not available at other single sex schools,”

says Sue Hume.

The Ministry of Education is currently

working on how the new schools will

be zoned but the schools are focusing

on catering to residents who live east of

Colombo Street.

“Because we will be servicing a wide

area, we will be establishing a network of

buses to service the campus,” says John

Laurenson.

Best of all, Sue Hume says the new

campus will open in 2019 so is not too far

away.

“In fact many of our current students

will be making the journey to the new

campus with us and those who join our

schools in the next two years will spend

their senior years there. It’s been a long

and sometimes hard road to get to the

new campus, but we are confident we’re on

track to create something even better than

what we had before the earthquakes.”

Dual mother and teacher role

provides unique perspective

HAEATA CoMMuNITY Campus will

provide more than cutting-edge facilities

when it opens in 2017, says new Director

of Learning rebecca Wilson – it is a “once

in a lifetime opportunity” for students,

their whānau and the East.

rebecca’s three children will be among

the first students attending the new school

next year.

“As a mother and a teacher I know that

Haeata is the best choice for my kids,

as they will be valued for who they are

as individuals and given the chance to

explore their different passions through

Haeata’s personalised approach to

learning,” says rebecca.

“I also love the fact that they will be at

one school for the rest of their schooling,

as Haeata caters for students from years

1-13. They can stay together for their

education and not be separated.”

Haeata is a “new beginning” for the East,

says rebecca.

“The new campus will change things

for the better, providing a new learning

community with endless opportunities –

with students right in the heart of it.”

rebecca joins Haeata’s Senior Leadership

Team after 13 years at Bromley School, the

last two as Deputy Principal.

As Director of Learning at Haeata,

rebecca is part of a team designing

systems and structures that will ensure a

successful start in 2017. Some of the key

tasks include engaging with families and

students from the contributing schools,

strengthening relationships with Māori

and Pasifika communities, planning for

diverse learners and organising safe travel

routes to and from school.

“I have been in my new role since the

beginning of the year and not a day goes

by that I do not feel excited about Haeata

opening its doors,” says rebecca, who also

lives in the local community.

“Although it is a safe, purpose-built

school with state-of-the-art facilities,

for me it is more about the innovative

learning and community relationships that

The future is bright in the East

By Andy Kai Fong

W

hen I first saw the

advertisement for the role

of Haeata Community

Campus Principal, I thought it

was the most exciting educational

opportunity I had seen for some time.

The chance to create and build a

new school is rare. At the time I was

working as the Head of Secondary

at Hong Kong’s Discovery College

and prior to that I held Principal

and Deputy Principal roles at

Hornby and Lincoln High Schools.

Haeata Community Campus will

open its doors in term one of 2017 for

students from years 1-13. The brand

new school is currently being built on

the Aranui High School site.

The campus will combine pupils

from the four schools that are closing

in eastern Christchurch – Aranui

Primary, Wainoni Primary, Avondale

Primary and Aranui High School –

as well as welcoming new students

from the local community.

It’s really important that we

capture the essence of what has

worked well at the four schools

that are closing and apply it in the

new campus.

Families can be confident that

their children will have access

to quality and innovative education

that provides a strong foundation

for their future.

Having students from years

1-13 allows us to build strong

connections between the school,

students and whānau.

We are fortunate to be in

state-of-the-art facilities which will

provide amazing opportunities for

all students and community groups.

We will be engaging face-to-face

with our community regularly to

discuss our plans, seek feedback and

answer questions you may have.

Along with our leadership team

and Board of Trustees, I look

forward to welcoming our first

students in 2017.

This is an exciting time for

the East – join us!

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Boutique salon specialises

in organic hair treatment

Set in the peaceful surroundings of a

private garden, The Lounge Organic

Hairdressing salon on Derby Street,

Merivale offers clients a retreat where

they can enjoy the benefits of top-quality

hairdressing in a boutique environment.

Since March, The Lounge has been

under the management of experienced

stylist Su Jorgensen. After spending

over 15 years abroad, the last six years

of which were working and teaching in

Southern Asia, Su has brought her skills

and passion to this unique Christchurch

salon.

Another noteworthy aspect of the salon

is that all products used are organic,

Paraben, Resorcine, PPD and ammonia

free. All products, including the retail

products, are animal cruelty free and

environmentally friendly.

The technology means that 100 per cent

grey coverage is easily obtained, Su says.

“The blondes are crisp, and the rich

colours are incredibly long lasting due to

the colour molecules being smaller, and

the hair being less damaged through the

processing.”

Aware of the growing interest in natural

and organic products, Su says salon

owner tracette saw the opportunity to fill

a niche in the market.

“Constant exposure to chemicals is not

beneficial for hairdressers or their clients,”

she says, “and people are now more

conscious about having natural products

used that are not harmful for their hair or

scalp.

“i also have a strong personal interest

in these types of products, and healthy

living. Having organic products at The

Lounge was perfect for me.”

Su specialises in cutting and colouring,

and also when requested provides her

clients with an indian therapeutic head

massage using holistic oils – a totally

relaxing treatment that nourishes the hair

and scalp.

She imports the highly regarded

Organic Argan oil from Morocco, a hair

and body oil which she markets under

her own label, Sukha. These products

will soon be available to purchase at The

Lounge and will go hand in hand with the

other retail products available.

Clients can also be confident that Su is

up to date with the latest trends in both

colouring and styling. For winter, she

says soft champagne and salmon pink

SOUTHERN VIEW

shades of blonde are taking the place of

the grey and silver tones, while soft and

rich coppers and deep chocolate browns

always look good with winter fashions.

Style-wise, fringes are in, mostly short

to medium, the long bob, or lob, remains

current, while a new trend for short hair

is the deconstructed short-long look,

which features short hair in the front and

long tendrils at the back.

in addition to hair styling The Lounge

also offers aromatherapy, massage and

reiki.

Located at 80 Derby Street, Merivale,

The Lounge is open tuesday to Saturday.

Hours are: tuesday and Thursday,

10am-8pm, Wednesday and Friday 10am-

6pm and Saturday 10am-5pm.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Transitioning skincare

through the seasons

Skincare expert and facialist Clemency Alice has a passion for beauty and organic

skincare. Recently travelling to Paris and Australia to further her knowledge, she

shares her secrets.

the tRAnSition from summer to

autumn can have a major impact on your

skin’s overall condition and appearance. if

the new season catches you unaware and

unprepared, your skin can become very

dry, extremely sensitive, lacklustre and

more susceptible to breakouts. This is due

to the change in oil flow – which was on

an all-time high during summer – and the

vitality of the ‘skin glow’ waning as cooler

temperatures plummet, constricting

blood vessels. here’s what you need to

know to ensure your skin stays prepped

and primped for the change of season.

PReSeRVe youR liPid BARRieR

if you remove this protective skin barrier

through more aggressive methods of overcleansing

and over-exfoliating, then the

skin cells aren’t prepared and your skin

becomes more vulnerable to the extreme

temperatures and external elements of

wind, sun and rain. A way to protect

and maintain hydration in your skin is

through spritzing your face after cleansing

with a floral facial mist then locking the

moisture in with your favourite facial oil

or moisturiser.

SwitCh moiStuRiSeRS

opt for a creamier, rich texture in

your moisturiser that has antioxidant,

super skin-boosting ingredients. Select

moisturisers that contain hyaluronic acid

(skin plumping and hydrating), vitamin

C (antioxidant and uV-protecting

properties), shea butter (moisturising

and protecting), and rose (softening,

anti-inflammatory, hydrating). And for

those with oilier skins, opt for a balancing

facial oil with lavender (restorative

and calming) and jojoba (balancing to

the acid mantle, protecting and antiinflammatory).

PRoteCt youR Skin

Just because summer is a distant dream,

keep applying a chemical-free SPF daily,

and opt for a seperate sun-care product

with a minimum of SPF30 rather than

relying on sun protection from your

foundation.

inSide And out

Beauty and skin health can come from

within:

• Ensure you drink plenty of water.

• Drink organic green tea (helps

prevent tewl – trans-epidermal water

loss).

• Eat seasonal fruit and vegetables.

• Drink green smoothies.

• Boost your intake of essential

fatty acids.

• Go for a brisk walk amongst

nature to

revive your autumnal ‘glow’.

• Maintain your skin sparkle with

restorative beauty sleep.
