New $15m school

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HALSWELL WILL be getting a

new $15 million primary school

to address the rapidly growing

population.

The Ministry of Education

has confirmed the land on

Tongariro St will be the new location

for the school in western

Halswell and it is expected to

open in 2020.

This is scheduled to be

two years earlier than what

was planned in the MoE’s

Christchurch Schools Rebuild

programme.

It is not yet known what year

range it would have but there is

some support for it to cater for

years 7 and 8.

Over the past few weeks the

MoE has been holding workshops

to gather opinions from

the community to determine

what year group the school will

cater for and what facilities it

will need.

Halswell Community Project

spokeswoman Chrys Horn, who

attended one of the meetings

said the consensus was there

needs to be a full-scale year 1-8

school.

Consultations have been held

at Halswell School, Aidanfield

Christian School, Hillmorton

School and Rowley Avenue

School and were facilitated by

Dr Gabrielle Wall.

Hillmorton High School

principal Ann Brokenshire said

if schools are full then

new primary schools are

needed.

She said she had various views

on the year group structure of

the school due to Hillmorton

High School and Hornby High

School catering for the area’s

intermediate pupils.

As for a high school in

Halswell Ms Brokenshire said

there is more than enough

capacity in the existing high

school network.

The final public workshop will

be held at Oaklands School on

September 6, 7-8pm.

Dr Wall will collate the

ideas generated into an online

survey which will be live from

September 12-30 on the MoE

website.

ON THE front page today, we

look at what area is getting a new

$15 million school, with decisions

still to be made on whether it will

have primary only, or include

intermediate-aged pupils as well.

Fair to say there has been a

lot of confusion and concern

surrounding what is happening at

The Princess Margaret Hospital.

On page 3, we cover the meeting

where Canterbury District Health

Board boss David Meates fronted

up to a community meeting to

discuss which services will be

staying for up to two years.

We say farewell to Cashmere

School matriarch Lady Christina

McCombs on page 7. She died on

August 13 just short of her 100th

birthday and was fondly remembered

at her funeral for her work

with Cashmere High School and

her contributions to the community

Elections 16

PMH to keep mental health services

• Caitlin Miles and Tania Green

MENTAL HEALTH services will

remain at The Princess Margaret

Hospital for the next two years while

decisions on the future use of the

hospital and the site are decided.

But the Canterbury District Health

Board will shift them out if they find

a suitable location earlier.

There has been confusion around

what was remaining, and what was

going at the hospital, within the

community, but last week Canterbury

District Health Board boss

David Meates attended a residents

meeting to “set the record straight”.

He told the residents at the Tuesday

meeting last week that mothers

and babies unit, older persons’

community teams, child and youth

mental health inpatient services,

the eating disorders service, adult

long-term mental health will remain

on site for at least two years or until a

new location is found.

Older people services shifted to

the newly-opened Burwood Hospital

in April. This led to residents being

concerned that other services would

leave the area.

Meanwhile, a petition which asked

for a community health hub to be

installed on site, has reached 1500

signatures. But Mr Meates said the

petition had muddied the waters of

what was possible on site.

“This has created a number of

unrealistic expectations and a lot

of confusion with regard to how we

plan and fund health services for the

entire Canterbury population,” Mr

Meates said.

Lower Cashmere resident Sue Bye

said she thinks it cleared up confusion

for some residents.

DECISION: The Canterbury District Health Board

held a meeting last week which was attended by

200 people. ​

In Brief

DOG NUMBERS

Spreydon has the second most

dogs in the city with 1114,

according to statistics released

from the city council. Woolston

had the seventh most in the city

with 841 and Linwood has 720

dogs. There are a total of 6310 in

the Southern View newspaper

area. This equates to 19.6 per cent

of the city’s total number of dogs.

There is a total of 38,159 dogs in

the city.

LITTER FINES

Dropping rubbish will come

with a bigger penalty from now

on. The city council has set up a

new range of fines for different

amounts of rubbish. People

caught dropping less than onelitre

of rubbish, which includes

cigarette butts and cans, could

face a $100 fine. Litter of more

than 120-litres and hazardous

waste will face the highest fine of

$400.

LINWOOD COLLEGE FIRE

Firefighters were called to put out

a fire in a coal bunker at Linwood

College on Saturday at about

7.15pm. A Fire Service spokesman

said the fire was “nothing too

major.” Firefighters wearing

breathing apparatus put it out

before leaving things in the hands

of the caretaker.

to an opinion piece

written by John Verd

about fluoridated

water. They write

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

MY LOVELY LOLA

I write about my patients

monthly and now I find myself

writing about my precious girl

“LOLA”. My eldest son Connor

left for the USA a few weeks ago

to study and play tennis for UC

Berkeley in San Francisco. Steve

travelled with Connor to help him

organize his first week at college

and while he was away, our

beautiful black lab presented one

morning weak and wobbley in her

hindlegs, unable to walk properly

and support herself. She was

acutely painful which was hard for

me see and knuckling over on her

paws. She was still ravenous though

and was not incontinent. The day

before she had gone running with

Dylan and appeared normal. She has never

obviously shown any sign of neurological

disease before.

I panicked. Lola is my dog and we are so closely

intertwined. We read each others minds and

we are together 24/7. We are best friends.

When she gets sick ( especially when she had

kidney cancer last year), Steve takes over as

her vet, I’m just her mum. I feel useless making

veterinary decisions for her but with Steve

away, I had to step up, for her sake.

I’m very

fortunate with

the incredible

nurses and vets

we have working

with us. Lola is

very loved and

the team swung

into action. As

soon as I entered

the practice,

everyone

could see the

predicament

Lola was in.

She was placed on a fentanyl CRI for pain,

her entire spine was radiographed and she

had many tubes of blood taken to test for

toxoplasmosis, infectious disease and check her

organ function. A special bed was organized

for her in the treatment area as strict rest was

crucial. Catherine made a special trip in on her

day off to assess Lola neurologically. Suzanne

performed acupuncture and laser treatment.

She accepts everything we do to her. She fully

understands our job and that we are only

trying to help. She is the perfect patient.

Once all the test results were in, taking

into account the neurological exam and

radiographs taken, we came to the conclusion

that she had either prolapsed a disc between

T3-L3 or had a FCE ( fibrocartilaginous

embolism). FCE causes

ischaemic myelopathy which

is poor blood supply to the

spinal cord. Like any part

of the body, the spinal cord

relies on a permanent supply

of blood to bring nutrients

and remove waste products.

Arteries supply segments of

the cord on each side. FCE

occurs acutely, often with

no pain. Often one limb is

more affected. Usually these

patients make a full recovery

with the help of strict rest and

anti-inflammatory medication.

Other possible causes included

a fracture or dislocation of

human radiologists.

the spinal vertebrae,

discospondylitis or

inflammatory diseases

like toxoplasmosis.

Due to her recent bout

of cancer, resulting in the

loss of a kidney, I was a

little worried the cancer

may have spread to

her spinal cord. I have

organized an MRI at St

George’s hospital, so

we know what we are

dealing with. I go with

her to sedate her and

monitor her. The MRI

takes about 30 minutes

and is interpreted by

I also have friends in “high places”, and I

consulted with a specialist surgeon in Auckland

who I’ve trusted with all my pets in the past.

Depending on the results from her MRI she

may need spinal surgery if she doesn’t make a

full recovery. Im really hoping this isn’t the case

but if so then she will fly to Auckland ands be

surgically assessed.

The biggest problem I have has been trying

to confine her and stop her tail continually

wagging and her whole back end

wiggling. She’s on a concoction of

medications I give her 3 times daily

covering all my bases and then she’s

assisted when going to the toilet. Bed rest

is the number 1 priority. She is sleeping

with me, coming to work to rest and I am

slowly walking her on a lead to toilet. She

can’t understand why I am being so clingy

and why I’m popping so many pills into

her. She is on double antibiotic therapy,

tramadol for pain and two different antiinflammatories.

I’m praying this sorts itself

out with time, patience, rest and love!! She

certainly got it right choosing a vet as her

mum……she’s slightly high maintenance

medically!! But I wouldn’t have her any other

way.

As of writing this she is definitely on the

improve trying to leap into my car. She is

walking way better, but still a little ataxic and

weak in her hindlegs. She has no pain and

seems happy. Thanks to everyone on Facebook

who has sent special wishes Lola’s way. We

so appreciate this and they have helped!

She is such a special, loved team member of

As with climate change,

we have had a plethora of

attacks on the scientific

consensus from people

without personal expertise

regurgitating second-hand

assertions and unverified

theories. In such cases,

it is essential to consider

that when peer-reviewed

scientific information

is accepted by the vast

majority of those qualified

to judge it, it is exceedingly

likely that this will be correct.

Sensible decisions on

health, political or other

issues require informed

debate. Emotive arguments

and misinformation, from

whatever motivation,

make it much harder to

reach sensible agreement

and effective action in the

common good. The news

media have a great responsibility

in their presentation

of information. It is

probably impractical to

print a suitable response

from the relevant authorities

each time the papers’

publish an opinion against

fluoridation, but if you

want to promote real public

understanding rather

than just stir controversy,

I would suggest adding a

clear note after such items

pointing out that information

is available on the

website www.fluoridefacts.govt.nz/

and that this

is supported by the Ministry

of Health, NZ Dental

Association, NZ Medical

Association, the Public

Health Association and the

NZ Nurses among others.

This would enable readers

to check detailed information

and then judge

the credibility of those

involved. I am sorry your

correspondent, having

come to New Zealand, is

kept up at night worrying

about being fluoridated,

but I would suggest to him

that, in this country, our

medical authorities are not

only highly responsible

but also highly competent.

They are unlikely to be

colluding to poison him

or reduce his IQ. I hope he

the cost is for this waste

of tooth decay. If they are

concerned about calcium

fluoride, it can be found in

most aquifers in New Zealand

Firefighters on the move

• By Andrew King

ADDINGTON firefighters have

moved into two temporary bases

while their new station is being

rebuilt.

They will be based out of The

Princess Margaret Hospital during

the day. At night, they will

share the Sockburn Fire Station.

But assistant area commander

Mike John said even though they

will be operating out of two different

locations, it will not affect

their ability to do their job.

“There will be no drop in service.

In fact, some areas will get

an extra appliance,” he said.

The damaged fire station, on

Simeon St, was built in 1974 and

is the youngest in the city. Now it

will be demolished to make way

for a state-of-the-art facility to

service the needs of those in and

around Addington.

It is the first of six stations

around the city to be rebuilt as

part of the New Zealand Fire

Service’s rebuild programme.

Firefighter Tony Price is a long

serving veteran of the station.

Over time, he has seen his entire

crew, the fire truck and now

the station either changed or

replaced.

“(The station) is a second

home. All the firemen seem to

think that we are here for nights

and days; it’s a second family,”

he said.

Senior station officer Gerald

Wilson said a number of pranks

had been pulled over the years.

He remembers firefighters

wiring up a chair to a “crank-up

machine”, which would generate

an electrical current, shocking

the victim while he ate dinner or

tried to relax.

The new station is expected to

take between 12 to 18 months

to complete, and will double

the current size. There will be a

two bay garages to house other

equipment, such as four-wheel

drives and other appliances.

New tunnel

rules for

truckers

• By Annabelle Dick

TRUCK DRIVERS travelling

through Lyttelton Tunnel will

need to cover loose loads from

tomorrow when a new bylaw

comes into place.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency bylaw was created in an

effort to reduce the amount of

material polluting the tunnel.

It comes as the amount of

dirt has increased significantly

following the earthquakes.

Up to 8000kg of dirt and

dust is cleaned out of the tunnel

every month, compared to

235kg a month before 2011.

“Cleaning the tunnel has

gone from once a month to

three times a week,” said NZTA

maintenance contract manager

Barry Stratton.

While commercial vehicles

are covered by the new bylaw, it

does not apply to residents.

Trucks carrying fertiliser;

construction or demolition material;

waste; soil; sand; stock

feed; and other products which

can be blown around, are covered

by the new bylaw.

Scrap metal and logs, which

are harder to effectively cover,

are excluded.

Owning a husky requires dedication

THIS WINTER, at least one

husky a week is arriving at the

West Melton branch of Husky

Rescue NZ, the company

re-homing abandoned or

unwanted huskies.

This season is shaping up to

be the worst in the company’s

seven-year history.

Although many of the

unwanted dogs come from

Auckland, Husky Rescue NZ has

experienced an influx of huskies

from Christchurch.

“We do always have dogs from

Christchurch … it’s pretty much

one dog a week from Canterbury.

It’s the worst winter we’ve ever

had,” Husky Rescue NZ founder

Michelle Attwood said.

The siberian husky is known to

be a hands-on breed.

Ms Attwood said a minimum

exercise routine of 5km a day is

needed to keep them healthy.

“In summer, that means [running

or walking] very late at

night, or early in the morning,

to avoid those 20 deg C temperatures.”

Huskies also require seasonally

intense fur maintenance, a

lot of entertainment and a firm

understanding of who sets the

rules, she said.

“If the owner fails to establish

their position as leader, the

husky, with its strong pack

mentality, will become the pack

leader instead and be almost

impossible to control,” Ms Attwood

said.

Many people will purchase a

husky before understanding the

dog’s needs and then give up

when the job becomes too hard,

she said.

“[Owners] say: ‘Oh well, it

jumped a six-foot fence, it ate

the neighbour’s cat and it won’t

come back when it’s called’ …

Those are all just standard husky

traits.”

Ms Attwood reported reoccurring

problems from irresponsible

breeders.

“We’ve had over 12 dogs from

just one backyard breeder …

time and time again we are seeing

the same problem dogs from

the same problem breeders,” she

said.

The rescue centre caters to

huskies through a combination

of pack-like living arrangements

and dry-land scootering and

sledding.

“They do really well at the

Husky owner Christos Merentitis

three years ago. Strict training

and constant exercise is what

helped Max become a beloved

member of the family.

“I got Max when he was

10-months-old. A lot of trainers

Woman’s community passion remembered

• By Annabelle Dick

LADY CHRISTINA McCombs

has passed away just short of her

100th birthday.

With strong ties to Cashmere

High School, Lady McCombs

was a well-known figure for her

contributions to education and

the community.

Lady McCombs died on

August 13, more than a 100

people turned out to her farewell

on August 20.

She was married to former Lyttelton

MP Sir Terence McCombs

who was the first principal of

Cashmere High School.

When her husband took up

a position at the then brandnew

school in 1956, she helped

establish it, said her son Peter

McCombs.

“Together they shaped Cashmere

and in turn Cashmere

shaped them both. There was

considerable pride and satisfaction

in doing what he loved and

with Christina alongside him

in every step of the way – from

helping with the original colours

and the uniform, through to

helping dig the original swimming

pool,” said Mr McCombs.

Lady McCombs hailed from

the Shetland Islands, in Scotland,

and was the only child of Gilbert

and Margaret Tulloch.

She attended Christchurch

Girls’ High School before she

trained in home science and

taught at the then Christchurch

Technical College.

Another moment Mr Mc-

Combs recalls is when his mother

went to the United Kingdom

in 1974 to support her husband

came to New Zealand House in

London to attend an official dinner

whitebait arrived having just

he said.

“She also gave cooking lessons

Panorama Rd on the top of

Clifton Hill which is where she

spent most of her life.

In 1955, she married Sir

Terence McCombs and took

in his four children Elizabeth,

David, Peter and Patrick and

gave birth to their youngest child

John.

“She was very caring and

interested on all sorts of levels

about the community and the

organisations in it. It was a

strong passion of hers,” said Mr

McCombs.

Lady McCombs was involved

with Cashmere High School,

Sumner School, joined in and

supported many local groups

and served on committees.

She was also a patron with

Plunket and worked with

mothers through branches in

Redcliffs, Heathcote, Ferrymead

and Woolston.

In the final years of her life she

moved into an apartment within

the Ilam Life Care facility in Riccarton.

LEADERS: Senior pupils Molly Perkins and Simran Bath escort

the younger children to their classroom.

Safer road patrols

CHILDREN AT Halswell

School are becoming road safety

ambassadors.

The school is taking part in

a pilot programme designed to

make children safer getting to

and from school.

The city council is behind the

school road safety leaders programme,

which was launched

this year.

Pupils Simran Bath and Molly

Perkins, both 13, are road safety

leaders and, as part of their role,

they have come up with a new

system where they and other

senior pupils act as buddies and

escort younger children to their

classrooms from a drop-off zone.

This means parents can safely

drop their children in the zone

in front of the school office and

keep driving to clear the area.

Molly said being a leader has

made her think more about ways

to improve road safety around

the school.

Community travel advisor Joy

Kingsbury said the idea is modelled

off a similar programme in

the United Kingdom.

She wants the children to get

creative while they promote the

new scheme.

“They might make a road

safety video and put it on the

school website, or hold a special

assembly, she said.

“It’s to give them a bit more

mana and make them realise

how important their school

patrol role is. Without them, the

kids couldn’t get across the road

safely.”

Rolleston School is taking a

different approach. Their Kiss

and Go campaign was set up

so parents can give their kids

a quick kiss goodbye in the

morning.

BIG BREAKFAST: Opawa School

also hosted the annual home

and school big breakfast last

week. Melane, Shevaun and

Simone prepared a bacon

sandwich for Lincoln, while Ella

Lapslie (below) and her mum,

Sarah, enjoyed eating their

bacon sandwich.

RACES: Opawa

School’s student

council organised

some Olympic-themed

activities for the pupils.

Flinn Platt, Cesar Moga

and Noah Smith all

competed in a hurdles

event. Other activities

included balloon

badminton, target

practice and sock

wrestling.

FAMILY TIME: Nate and Seb Lane sat with their mum, Jos, to

enjoy breakfast.

Ella and James McLeod

Shelley is the principal scientist at EOS

Ecology and project lead for Whaka Inaka. In

the largest initiative of its kind, Whaka Inaka

installed 204 bales as spawning habitat for

inaka/inanga along 3 km of riverbank in the

Heathcote/Opawho, Steamwharf Stream,

and Lake Kate Sheppard in January 2016.

With the involvement of local community, iwi

and schools they monitored the bales during

the spawning season to count the eggs and

check on pest activity. The programme was

a success with the bales supporting eggs

in areas where spawning was otherwise

not occurring, and the community learning

about their natural environment in their

back yard.

Whaka Inaka is a collaboration between

EOS Ecology, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, and

University of Canterbury (MERG, Resilient

Shorelines).

Singing nuns perform

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DRAMA group which has

been running for about 52 years

will perform the internationally

renowned show, Nunsense The

Mega Musical.

The production will feature

performers from Halswell,

Rolleston, Cashmere, Tai Tapu

and Lincoln.

It will be staged from this

Friday by the Halswell Drama

Group. The show will be their

first ever off-Broadway musical.

“Part-time nun” Tim Gunther

said the show will be bigger and

better than any other show the

drama group has performed.

“We went to some businesses

in Halswell and asked for some

financial assistance to help afford

the script because it was about 10

times more expensive than the

script we usually try,” he said.

Nunsense The Mega Musical

tells the story of ‘the little sisters

of Hoboken’ who have recently

suffered the tragic loss of most of

their convent after an accidental

food poisoning by their cook

Sister Julia.

Gunther will play the role of

Sister Julia who is based on the

American chef Julia Child.

“It is a bit unusual . . . it is my

first time playing a woman on

stage so I am pretty excited about

that,” he said.

This year the group has partnered

with restaurant and bar

The Old Vicarage as part of a

pre-show dinner.

Gunther said the show has

been done many times around

the world and is the next step

down from shows like Cats and

Chess.

Nunsense The Mega Musical

will run from Friday, September

2 to Saturday, September 10, at

the Halswell Community Centre.

Opportunity shop opened by St John

THE CITY’S first St John

opportunity shop opened in

Addington on Saturday.

Money raised in the shop,

at 272 Lincoln Rd, will

support ambulance and

other St John services in

Christchurch.

St John Christchurch chairman

Graham Gillespie said

the shop would be a key part of

St John’s presence in the city,

alongside other community

activities such as ambulance

services, the St John Youth

programme, and community

care programmes.

Volunteers had been recruited

to run the shop under

the guidance of manager Pete

Black.

“We received an amazing

response to our request for volunteers

and have a dedicated

team of local people on board,”

Mr Gillespie said.

“St John opportunity shops

are another way for local people

to support St John and for

our organisation to continue

our work in local communities.”

St John has operated other

opportunity shops around

the country for a number of

years.

BIG DAY: The opening of

a new St John opportunity

shop in Addington was

attended by (from left)

shop manager Pete

Black, city councillor Tim

Scandrett and St John

Graham Gillespie, among

others. ​

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Experts restore that

“winning smile”

Meeting people for the first

time, interacting with others on social

occasions, going for a job interview – in

all these situations your smile is the most

important part of you.

or perhaps, on a lighter note, you

might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’

because your smile is not as attractive as it

should be, due to missing or broken teeth.

perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture

South in Barrington, where the experts

can give you that winning smile back.

Clinical technician Andrew Johnson

and his team of clinical and lab

technicians are fully focused on providing

customised service at their Barrington

clinic, and will take all the time needed

to fulfill your partial or full denture

requirements whether you want an even,

bright smile or a more natural-looking

one.

For people who have had dentures for a

while and are finding they frequently need

to buy denture adhesive to keep them in

place, Andrew advises having the dentures

relined so they will fit better. As he points

out, the money spent on denture adhesive

over 12 months would easily cover the

cost of having your dentures refitted.

Denture South has been providing a full

range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These

services include first-time immediate

dentures, full replacement dentures,

partial plates and sports mouth-guards.

Many Denture South clients come

through word-of-mouth referral, an

indication of the level of satisfaction that’s

provided there. Friendly, approachable

and highly skilled, the Denture South

team enjoys helping people with all their

denture fitting, ongoing care and denture

maintenance requirements.

ADULT LEARNERS’ WEEK

HE TANGATA MĀTAURANGA

Ara community study -

where adult learners are welcome

At Ara Institute of Canterbury’s six community

hubs, people can learn at their own pace in a

friendly, welcoming environment that supports

people who are returning to study after a long

break or those who are undertaking study for the

first time.

At hubs in New Brighton, Bishopdale, Hornby,

Rangiora, Christchurch’s Madras Street and now

also in Timaru, Ara staff support community

learning needs through a range of programmes.

Computing for Free is a popular choice for adult

learners looking for accessible training for basic

computer skills or to upskill to improve their career

opportunities.

Computing for Free offers a range of self-paced,

short courses of between 20 to 40 hours to introduce

people to a wide range of specific programmes as

Web Design and Powerpoint.

The facilitators who are on-hand to provide

support are passionate about the courses they teach

and the communities they teach in, providing

an excellent experience for students. Timetables

SOUTHERN VIEW

are flexible to fit around family and professional

commitments.

Having completed Computing for Free herself,

tutor Jo Harkerss understands the challenges of

returning to study.

“For many people it is a huge stepping stone.

They may have been made redundant or been out

of the workforce after having children and here

they can connect with other people and learn new

skills that will make them more employable and

give them confidence to try other things too.

“They might have used computers in the past,

but programmes change and skills need to be

updated,” Jo says.

“The hardest thing is for people to walk in

the door. Then they realise that we are really

nice! And that they can do it. You see people

come in who feel afraid of computers, but we

are here to help them to achieve. Study is not

easy for everyone, but our programmes have

a good balance of theory and practice, plus

the programmes are self-paced to fit around

other life commitments such as work and

family.”

Computing for Free also caters for adult

learners who want to upskill for career

progression, with programmes such as the

National Certificate in Computing, which is a

formal qualification that employers recognise

and value. For students who find a passion for

computing there are further programmes on offer

at Ara from certificates to degrees.

Enrolling is easy – just pop into your local

branch to discuss your needs with one of our

friendly facilitators or visit http://www.ara.

nina COOk

Nina Cook was born in Whakatane

in 1967. She was educated

in Wanganui and then at

Christchurch Polytechnic School

of Art and Design where she

received a Bachelor of Design.

In 2007 Nina established the

studio from which she currently

works. Nina’s work is held in

private collections in New Zealand

and overseas.

Frame OF mind

For this exhibition, I am exploring

issues of societal bias through a

personal lens.

The effect of proselytized overly

fixed viewpoints on political,

religious, racial, gender and

environmental issues is alarming.

When this alarm is combined with

the information bias that occurs in

this curated information age, our

dual desires to belong and control

are kicked into overdrive.

I am not immune to this, but

am also shocked at the lack of

empathy or comprehension of

‘other’ that some people exhibit.

This body of work is my way of

trying to understand.

Though many (including

myself) try to be independent,

compassionate, open-minded

and critical in our thinking, we

cannot avoid being influenced.

Not only by our own experience

and state of mind, but also by

broader cultural, societal, and

scientific relevancies. And this is

always changing.

Art a fantastic way of exploring

issues because it combines both

intellectual and intuitive practices.

The frame is overt, pedantic. As

in a museum display, it provides

a curated context, which is only

ever part of the story.The content

captures personal situations and

impressions – things I have felt,

seen and imagined.

Whilst painting, I have been

deliberately mindful of my thought

process. I asked myself; What is

the true impetus for this work?

What narrative is cycling/growing

in my mind?

How is this effecting my choices?

At what point/s does my ‘frame

of mind’ become ‘confirmation

bias’? To what degree is bias

necessary? When does it become

a liability?

I didn’t discover any big answers,

just personal ones – but every bit

helps.

Some clues are reflected in the

work titles, much more in the

works themselves as physical

Nostalgia

Release

manifestations of my frame of

mind.

Most importantly, I am inviting

the viewer to reflect upon their

own frame of mind or state of bias

whilst investigating mine.

ADULT LEARNERS’ WEEK 2016 HE TANGATA MĀTAURANGA

Learning Nation focus for

Adult Learners’ Week 2016

Adult educators will be on the streets during Adult

Learners’ Week/He Tangata Mātauranga, September 5-11,

asking people what they would like to learn and recording

their responses. The campaign called ‘Learning Nation’ will

be a focus for this year’s celebration. It acknowledges that

lifelong learning is vital for a rich, rewarding life and

worthy of a conversation.

Adult Learners’ Week/He Tangata Mātauranga,

celebrates all adult learning whether it’s upskilling for a

better job, preparing for further study, improving life skills

or having fun. It is supported by the New Zealand National

Commission for UNESCO and incorporates International

Literacy Day on September 8.

Every year thousands of ACE providers, educators,

learners and supporters organise a huge range of events to

highlight the value of adult learning.

The Government priorities for Adult and Community

Education (ACE) include literacy, numeracy, English

language (ESOL), te Reo Māori and sign language.

Providers all over New Zealand offer learning in these core

areas and many others. Courses not eligible for funding

are often run by volunteers.

In Christchurch many of the organisations providing

ACE opportunities will be celebrating with their learners

Connecting Adult and Community Education

and Learning across Otautahi

and in their own communities, more information can be

found on the ACE forum website https://aceforumchch.

wordpress.com/

On Wednesday 7th September in collaboration with Ako

Aotearoa, PEETO – The Muliti-Cultural learning Centre

and Risngholme there will be the Annual Adult learners

awards 2016. This will take place at Riccarton Community

Church, 80 Rattray St from 7pm.

On Friday 9th September there will be the Annual Adult

Learners’ week breakfast where we will be discussing

further the role of Christchurch as a learning city.

It will be a week of celebration and consideration of the

importance of learning to our communities and our city

and our nation.

In Christchurch Adult Learners’ Week/He Tangata Mātauranga

2016 celebrations are organized by the ACE forum Christchurch.

You are able to contact the forum by email at aceforumchch@

.... has resulted in a well-designed,

well sited and highly desirable home

to live in. My client’s decision to

downsize gives a lucky new owner the

opportunity to own a home designed

to maximise sunshine, maximise

views and maximise ease of living.

The large family kitchen opens onto

a spacious dining and family room,

plenty of room to entertain or relax

with your family. There is a formal

living room for you to escape the

hubbub of family life. With four large

double bedrooms, one downstairs,

there is space for all. Upstairs there is

an excellent area for either the children

to play or a retreat area. A separate

study downstairs can hide all the

paperwork and technology our houses

fill up with in today’s world.

The master bedroom is a treat for

you - large with a walk-in wardrobe,

generous ensuite and opens onto a

verandah to look at the Southern Alps.

Landscaping & decks have been

carefully designed to give shelter

whilst enjoying your barbecue. There

is even room for three trampolines!

Garaging & parking have not

been forgotten. The double garage is

spacious and room beside it has been

specially made to park a boat. Offstreet

parking in front of the garage for

Celebrating 54 years

on the local music scene

NEVILLE Wilkins & the Viscounts celebrate

54 years on the music scene this weekend

making them one of New Zealand’s longest

established dance bands.

Christchurch trumpeter, Neville Wilkins

formed the band in 1962 and during its career

The Viscounts has had around 60 members,

with some staying as long as 20 years.

Their first residencies included

Christchurch’s 500 Club in Chancery Lane and

The Town & About in Peterborough St,

followed later by the Bush Inn Courts and

Twiggers.

With a career spanning well over five

decades, the group has adapted its repertoire

with time and today play a wide selection of

material.

“I always aimed for the band to play the

most popular artists, such as Ricky Nelson,

Billy Vaughan, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Gene

The

Woolston Club...

A classic, contemporary

club experience

Cafe open from 11am

TAB & Gaming, Function Facilities,

HOUSIE Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

SHUTTLE Tuesday - Saturday

Pitney, Eddie Calvert, Neil Diamond, Dire

Straits, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Englebert

Humperdink, and Elvis Presley,” said Neville.

“So we play a good mixture of 50's, 60's, 70's

ballads, rock and roll, country and even Irish.”

Today the Viscounts still perform at private

functions and the occasional public show,

however in the past they have shared the stage

with some wonderful performers including

Eddie Low, Yolande Gibson, Maria Dallas,

Frank Rowles, Bunny Walters, Toni Williams,

Tommy Adderley, Dean Waretini, and

Jonanthan J, to name a few.

Neville Wilkins & the Viscounts appear at

the Woolston Club, Hargood St, this Saturday

(3rd September). Don’t miss your opportunity

to ‘cut a rug’ with this highly respected and

experienced show band. Entry $5. Band starts

at 7.30pm.
