Oldest collegian

flew secret

war missions

• By Julia Evans

AT 101-YEARS-OLD, Naylor Hillary will

be the oldest collegian at the St Andrew’s

centenary this weekend.

Like many of the college’s 14,000 previous

students, he has had an interesting past.

Mr Hillary is one of the last living veterans

of the Royal Air Force’s Tempsford 138

Special Duties Squadron, which he was a

navigator for in World War 2.

THe squadron specialised in dropping

resistance fighters and their supplies behind

enemy lines in a Mk IV Short Stirling.

Its existence was so classified, it wasn’t

Duties Squadron.

Hurry this special offer ends: 31 March 2017.

Limited appointments available. T&Cs apply

even acknowledged until 1989,

and the full story has still not

come to light.

At the end of last year Mr

Hillary was awarded the

French Legion d’Honneur

medal (right) by the French

ambassador for his services.

He doesn’t talk about it much

– life is a lot quieter for him now.

He reads the paper each

morning, takes long walks and

goes to church every Sunday

without fail.

THere’s an All Blacks jersey

hanging on his wall signed by

Richie McCaw. Mr Hillary’s grandson

organised it for his 100th birthday.

He was chuffed, he watches the rugby

whenever it’s on.

But Mr Hillary said his career really

began when he started attending St

Andrew’s in 1929.

“I had three older sisters so mum and dad

packed me off to board at St Andrew’s to

toughen me up,” he said.

THe cold showers, morning runs around the

school paddock and open air sleeping

quarters did the trick, he said.

IT’S A bit of a St Andrew’s

College edition this week.

We have comprehensive coverage

of this weekend’s 100th

anniversary of the school, which

includes a profile on the college

rector Christine Leighton, who

has been at St Andrew’s for 10

years now.

On the front page, reporter Julia

Evans caught up with 101-year-old

Naylor Hillary, the college’s oldest

old boy going to the festivities.

During the war Naylor was part

of a secret operation that dropped

people and supplies behind enemy

lines in France to help the Resistance.

Naylor was a navigator on those

missions, a critical part of the jigsaw.

Pinpoint accuracy was needed

to get the people to the right spot

and away from the Germans.

On another note, it’s not too late

to sign up for the City2Surf on

$30,000 lifeline for cottage

• By Noah Graham

FERRYMEAD’S COB Cottage

has been given a $30,000 lifeline

to stop it deteriorating.

The money has been fast

tracked after Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Ward councillors Sara

Templeton and

Yani Johanson

(left) argued

it was needed

urgently.

A total of

$300,000 which

was earmarked

for the repair had been deferred

out to 2020/21 in the proposed

draft Annual Plan.

However, Cr Templeton and

Cr Johanson asked for the repair

of the cottage to be brought

forward to 2019.

Cr Templeton said the

extra $30,000 will ensure the

building is secured and help

stop deterioration until 2019

while also contributing to public

consultation and consent

costs.

The historic cottage was significantly

damaged in the 2011

earthquakes and repairs were

put on hold until Ferrymead

Bridge could be fixed.

She said the cottage has been

a marker in the community for

BROKEN: The Ferrymead Cob Cottage suffered significant damage in the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, and is in need of repair.

many years and with the Coastal

Pathway so close, more people

will be able to see how early

pioneers lived in the Ferrymead

area.

The work done to the cottage

will need to be consulted on but

there is no time frame for that

yet, she said.

Christchurch Heritage Trust

chairwoman Dr Anna Crighton

said she was delighted to hear

the plans were brought forward

and the cottage is going to be

repaired.

“I’m very pleased they’re going

to repair it . . . we need reminders

from before the earthquake,

particularly Cob Cottage.”

The cottage was built by James

Penfold in the early 1860s.

Mr Penfold was an employee

for the Ferrymead-Christchurch

railway line and helped in the

construction of Lyttelton Tunnel.

The building has a shingled

roof, wooden casement windows

and a plank door. The house was

rebuilt in the 1940s.

In Brief

CYCLEWAY WORK

Construction on the $15.5

million Quarryman’s Trail

cycleway is expected to begin

in June. The 8.3km cycleway

will go from Halswell through

Hoon Hay, Addington and

Somerfield. It involves removing

housing between Roker and

Barrington Sts, lowering speed

limits, removing car parks and

changing road layouts. Twentynine

minor changes were

made to the route before it was

approved.

ROAD OPEN

Dyers Pass Rd is now open day

and night. A 50km/h temporary

speed limit and no stopping

restrictions remain in place. The

road has been closed since the

Port Hills fire in February.

NEW COMMUNITY GROUP

The Halswell Community Project

is planning to facilitate a new

group to represent the community

on issues in the area. The Halswell

Liaison Group is to develop

community networks and share

information and ideas. The group

would like to hear from residents

and groups interested in joining

them on this venture. If interested

St Andrew’s College

Oldest collegian flew

secret war missions

•From page 1

Mr Hillary was born and

raised in Christchurch. He lived

in Opawa before being going to

St Andrew’s.

He played rugby and tennis,

but it was an affinity for

mathematics that Mr Hillary

said he took from his time at St

Andrew’s.

“Because I was interested

in mathematics, when I had a

chance with the air force, I went

on as a navigator. You were

calculating all the time,” he said

He said he doesn’t think he was

a very bright student.

Mr Hillary was 18 when he

left St Andrew’s to join the Royal

New Zealand Air Force and go

on to take part in the Royal Air

Force Tempsford squadron.

“I have very pleasant memories

of my time there,” he said.

Even beyond his working life,

Mr Hillary has had a special

connection with his old school.

His son David attended the

college in the 60s and three

grandsons, Gareth, Rhys and

James Bissland after that – even

now his six-year-old great

grandson, Henry, is one of the

college’s youngest pupils.

Together they will be cutting

It’s very special going back to

the school with a great grandson

for a fourth generation, Mr

Hillary said.

Even Mr Hillary’s daughter

Pam Bissland worked on

the committee for the 75th

anniversary and said if it were

open to girls then she would’ve

gone to St Andrew’s as well.

Our family has a special

connection to the school, it’s an

important part of my life, Mr

Hillary said.

Sick bed to City2Surf

TURNAROUND: Leanne Crawford has put poor

health behind her and is looking forward to the

City2Surf.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Gabrielle Stuart

JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could

barely walk, had lost 30kg, was constantly

sick, and had to put both her work and her

wedding on hold – and she had no idea what

was going wrong.

This month, she will take on the 14km The

Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real Estate

event, which she will walk, and she won’t

be doing it alone.

Her partner, friends and many of the

nurses who helped her get on her feet

again plan to do the walk beside her –

41 people in total – raising money to

help others with the same condition

get treatment.

The 30-year-old began feeling sick

in 2014, but initially doctors did not

know what was wrong.

It took almost two years for her to

be diagnosed and find a treatment,

because she was facing a complex

mix of parasites in her intestines,

crohn’s disease and endometriosis.

For much of that time she couldn’t

work, and she had to postpone her

wedding three times.

“It was like my life was turned

upside down. It was really, really

frightening just not knowing what

was going on,” she said.

After a Christchurch gastroenterology

specialist, Steven Ding, diagnosed

her problems, she has made a

gradual recovery.

But she said it was only possible because

of the help she received, and the diagnosis

tools provided by the Canterbury Bowel and

Liver Trust.

“The things that finally got me well cost a

lot of money, so I wanted to give something

back,” she said.

She has already raised almost $1500

through people sponsoring her run.

She said she had never done anything like

the City2Surf before, and after being sick

for so long being able to cross the finish line

would feel like a giant victory.

“I’m sure there will be tears,” she said.

“I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I

can’t go for drinks or dinner like normal,

but I am still able to work, which is amazing.”

She works for Bupa as an activity organiser,

and said they held her job for her, in

spite of the fact she was off work for three

months.

She has also rescheduled her wedding, and

plans to marry her partner of eight years,

Craig Corboy, this December.

“I’m determined I’m going to get down the

aisle this time,” she said.

PLANS FOR the Nor’West Arc

cycleway proposed to start in

Cashmere have been released.

The route plans to run through

the majority of the south side

of the city before finishing in

Papanui. The city council has

opened the first section of the

route for public feedback.

It is planned to start on

Ferniehurst St, before moving

onto Woodbank and Palmside Sts

with a pedestrian island to

be built on Rose St to make

crossing easier for pedestrians

and cyclists.

The current pathway in

Centennial Park will be upgraded

to be 4m wide as part of the route

which will allow cyclists and

pedestrians to share the path.

It will then connect to the

Quarryman’s Trail cycleway

on Sparks Rd with a signalised

crossing put in on the road for a

safer crossing for pedestrians and

cyclists.

The route will also go along

Domain Tce, outside of Spreydon

retained on both sides of the

road. The route will continue

along Annex Rd and through

SCHOOLS

Hillmorton High School students found a new way to enjoy science when

a roadshow visited the school. The year 7 to 9 students got to play with

70 different exhibits and two demonstrations showing them the fun side

of science.

THINKERS: Ollie Salt, Harvey Scott, Alex Marquet, Michael

Dickson, Jack Gormley, Daniel Lovegrove had the help of

Daniel Goodman, to create a rainwater system to make

watering the school gardens more sustainable and less costly

to the environment.

Waterwise at St Peter’s

A GROUP of pupils at St Peter’s

School took it upon themselves to

make the school more conscious

of the way they used water.

The group of year 7 and 8 boys

wanted to find a way to make

watering the school’s gardens

more sustainable and avoid using

excess water.

With the help of Catherine

Smith from Futureintech, they

were able to enter the Transpower

Neighbourhood Engineers

Awards.

The awards aim to highlight

schools that use technology in

creative ways.

This meant they had access to

Daniel Goodman who worked as

an ambassador for Futureintech,

on a voluntary basis, with the

boys to plan and implement a

functioning sustainable rainwater

system.

Mrs Gill, the boys’ teacher, said

that they loved the practical way

they could apply their maths, science,

problem-solving and design

skills to benefit the school.

Working with a geo-tech engineer

also gave extra meaning to

their learning.

GAMES: Science was made interesting for

Cody Hodson, getting to use the interactive

displays. ​

LEARNING: Joshua Kirk learnt more about

what heat can do to liquid.

SPEED: Sarah Cameron raced around on of

the exhibits.

Christine Leighton

St Andrew’s first female rector

Christine Leighton is

rector of St Andrew’s

College, which is

celebrating its 100

year anniversary this

weekend. She talks

to Julia Evans about

the importance of the

school’s community and

how it plans to mark its

centenary

So, beginning with a bit of

background, how did you come

to be rector at St Andrew’s?

I’ve been working in education

in New Zealand for 37 years and

I’ve had a wide-ranging experience

through New Zealand

schools. I’ve taught at state and

integrated schools, single sex

and co-educational schools, but

this is my first time working at

an independent school in New

Zealand. I’ve come to my 10th

year as rector at St Andrew’s,

but before this, I was principal

of St Hilda’s Collegiate School

in Dunedin for nine years. It’s

hard to believe 10 years have

gone. Obviously, I’ve been rector

through some interesting times

but I’ve absolutely loved it.

What is it about St Andrew’s

that drew you in? Did you think

it would be a new challenge in

your career?

I was attracted back to St

Andrew’s largely because it is a

co-educational college. I’d been

educated in a co-educational

school myself and I believe that

it’s the best way to prepare young

people for their futures. It’s also a

natural environment for students

to be in, so I was delighted to

come back. Christchurch seemed

like a nice place to come to and

St Andrew’s has a great reputation.

I was also attracted to the

idea of independent education,

where you have more resource

available to you and more opportunity

to do things a bit differently.

I was an english teacher

before I moved into leadership

positions and I had taught at an

SPEECH: Christine Leighton has been rector at St Andrew’s for the past 10 years.

independent international school

in England for a year earlier in

my career, which was an experience

I really enjoyed. So after

all that, I decided to take on the

challenge to see what I could lead

St Andrew’s to be.

Have you taught at St Andrew’s

before or were you a

student yourself?

No, I’m from Auckland and

I did my english degree at

Auckland University. Actually,

I did my post-graduate teaching

diploma here in Christchurch at

what was known as the teacher’s

college back then, and my firstever

teaching placement was at St

Andrew’s. I was here for a whole

six weeks in 1980. Some of the

boys who were in my english

class that year are now on the

staff here.

So teaching has been a big

part of your life?

Yes, actually my husband’s

also a teacher at St Margaret’s

College. He teaches chemistry so

we’ve been in education all our

lives and we met when we were

both teachers at our first teaching

jobs at Nayland College in

Nelson. We have two sons. One

of them, Tom, teaches primary

school in London, he’s doing

his OE teaching over there. My

son Alex just got his first job in

geological engineering after finishing

his masters at Canterbury.

Alex went to St Andrew’s for

his final three years when I was

there, he’s very proud of being a

St Andrew’s boy. When the kids

were young, it was an interesting

juggle. I was a principal when

they were nine and six, they grew

up knowing mum and dad were

busy. We’ve just managed somehow.

I do think it’s an important

message for women that you can

do this, but there is sacrifice, you

can’t have everything. I’m sure

there are things the boys missed

out on in terms of my time and

attention, but it doesn’t seem to

have done them any harm. I’m

very proud of them.

You’ve been rector for some

really interesting times with the

earthquakes and now the centenary.

How has that been?

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster

really. When I get a chance to

look back on it, I’m sure I will

have a sense of satisfaction, but

at the moment, I never stop.

The world changes rapidly,

circumstances change rapidly

– it’s the kind of job where you

don’t get too much time to

stop and feel that sense of

satisfaction, you’ve just got to

keep going since you’re always

focusing on the next thing. Every

year is different, every year there

are new contexts that you’re

working in, and every year we

have about 250 new students

come into the college so it’s

always changing.

As St Andrew’s first female

rector, did you celebrate International

Women’s Day last

week?

I’m the 10th rector to be here,

but the first woman to be rector.

That’s quite an achievement really.

How important do you

think St Andrew’s is to the wider

Christchurch community?

We are a big community.

We’ve got 1450 students and

13,000 old collegians, so it’s a

huge community, but we work

really hard at not being inward

looking.

So this weekend is the

celebration for the centenary –

that must be a great

feeling?

We’ve been working towards

this for four or five years and

part of celebrating the centenary

is knowing and understanding

the stories and history behind

the college. We’ve really spent

that five years learning about

those stories. Recently, we gave

all the students in the college a

centenary badge, they were really

excited to get those badges and

they wear them with pride.

What does the centenary

mean for the community?

We actually launched the

centenary in September of last

year, so we’ve already had a

number of events, which has

been great to warm us up for the

big weekend. The school started

on March 17, 1917.

involved in more college history

That was the dedication service

of the first year of St Andrew’s so

that is the day that every year we

celebrate our founder’s day on.

We’ve planned a whole weekend

of events that will engage all

of our college and the wider

community. We have present

students coming and that’s from

preschool to year 13, we have

recent collegians who have left

in the last five or six years right

up to those who were here in the

1930s also coming. Several people

in their 90s are coming back

and the oldest collegian that we

know of, who is 101, will be cutting

the cake at the founder’s day

assembly. We have parents that

want to come to events and old

collegians of all various ages –

some coming from as far away as

England for the weekend.

What’s on the itinerary for

the weekend?

On Friday, we’re having a college

tour for 700 guests who are

also coming to the founder’s day

assembly. Then in the afternoon,

we’re holding our own highland

games and a cocktail evening for

1200 collegians at the college. On

Saturday, we have a whole college

fete, which is a huge event and

all the students are involved in it.

We’ve got displays, stalls, races,

rides and entertainment – all the

music and cultural groups are

performing on that day as well.

Later on Saturday, there’s a gala

dinner at Horncastle Arena for

1500 people, which is the largest

sit down dinner in Christchurch

since 2009. Then on Sunday,

we’re having a chapel service,

cricket game and old collegians

concert in the college hall and,

on Monday, there will be a big

sense of relief and achievement.

That’s a busy weekend, what

do you want people to take out

of it?

One of the things we wanted

to do was tell our stories and we

know the best way to do that is

visually. We’ve created a timeline

of 100 years of history and that is

absolutely fantastic for everyone

to engage with. We’ve got a

centennial book and a centennial

movie, which is 15 minutes long,

so we’ll launch that as part of our

weekend and have viewings. I’m

seeing the preview today, which

is very exciting. In our gymnasium,

we’re launching 100 years

of sport, where we’re celebrating

more than 80 collegians, staff

and present students who have

played or been in the top of their

sport. They had to have been

either in the Olympics, the Commonwealth

Games or the world

championships. Then we’ve

also had a centennial orchestral

piece written by an old collegian,

which is 11 minutes long, has

our college song incorporated

and tells our story through the

music. Then, a preparatory

class has created a time capsule,

which was buried yesterday. It

has been hermetically sealed in a

specially-made box to preserve it

for the next 100 years.

So you what do you think the

next 100 years has in store for

St Andrew’s?

The centenary is about looking

back and being grateful for

what we have been given. We’re

celebrating 100 years and where

we’ve got to now from our very

humble beginnings to the extent

which we’ve been able to develop.

We want to show gratitude for

the legacy we’ve inherited from

the people that have come before

us. But the theme is what our

legacy is moving forward, and

what we now have to contribute

to ensure the people of the future

are going to have the same opportunities

we’ve enjoyed. I have

had the thought that maybe

there will be a five-year-old here

at the moment who will still be

alive for the 200th anniversary.

There must be something

special about the college’s community

if people are coming

from near and far to celebrate?

There’s something very humbling

about being part of this

community and the opportunity

to see and understand the impact

education has had on people’s

lives. There’s the sense that these

people are reconnecting because

they want to say thank you and

show some gratitude and that’s

wonderful. Often that comes

with maturity and at a later stage

in your life. But the thing I love

to see is that a lot of our old collegians,

who are only just out of

school, have that same feeling.

I think that’s quite strange and

unusual for young people to

want to come back. We’ve got an

unbelievable number of recently

left old collegians coming back

for this weekend and that makes

me feel really happy. I think that

has to reflect the gratitude they

have to have come here in the

first place, because students do

realise how fortunate they are

to be here. But to me, it reflects

the amazing time that they had

when they came here so they just

want to reconnect.

Get prepared for winter

Fire risk management

officer Mark Thomas

talks about the

precautions you should

take to stay safe as

winter approaches

Murphy’s Law applies.

Last week I talked about

my frustration at the

number of people still

burning rubbish and

vegetation in ultra-dry

conditions.

So what happens? It

rains and then instantly

turns cold enough to say

summer’s over, welcome

to winter. And people start

lighting their fireplaces,

causing more calls, in one

case from a disgruntled

neighbour, and in another

from the house where the

fire had been lit because

the smoke wasn’t exiting

up the chimney, but

was filling the home up

instead.

So in what seems

an unusually early

cold season, the

recommendation is to get

your chimney flue swept –

now. Smoky chimneys are

one thing, but just about

every year at the onset of

winter we have house fires

The Courtyard Montessori Preschool is community

based and nestled on a ¼ acre garden setting

in the heart of the well-established suburb of

Somerfield near the foot of the Cashmere Hills.

The Courtyard Preschool prides itself on embracing

an authentic Montessori philosophy and method

of education that places the child at the heart of its

teaching. The Preschool aligns with the Principles

and Strands of Te Whaariki the Early Childhood

Curriculum.

Currently, the preschool is in the process of

building a new classroom that is designed to cater

for 2-3 year olds. This classroom will focus on

building small routines, engage in general Grace &

Courtesy games, assist with toilet independence

and generally nurture a sense of wellbeing, and

belonging in a home-like environment. At the age

of 3, children will transition in to one of our two 3-6

year classrooms. In these classrooms children

progress at their own individual rhythm and pace

within our non-competitive environment, while

values and respect for others is at the heart of our

preschool and modelled daily.

Montessori recognises that from birth until

age 3 the child is, without any effort, soaking up

everything about his world like a little sponge; this

is the unconscious, absorbent mind.

In the second half of the first plane (ages 3 to 6),

this absorption becomes conscious. During both of

while. That’s not because

they haven’t been

happening, but more

because I don’t want to

sound like a cracked

record.

One third of all house

fires start in the kitchen.

This week there were

three, though unusually,

none of them involved

these times, the enormous task of learning is made

more manageable through the sensitive periods.

Our Montessori philosophical approach is

distinctive in so far as it provides a unique cycle of

learning designed to take advantage of the child’s

sensitive years when a child can absorb information

from our enriched environment. There are periods

of intense fascination that children go through for

learning a particular skill and it is easier for a child

to learn a particular skill during the corresponding

sensitive period than at any other time. Thus, our

environment and programme takes advantage of

this fact by allowing the child the freedom to select

individual activities, which correspond to their own

periods of interest. Our environment is designed to

put the child at ease by giving them freedom within

an environment prepared with attractive materials

within curriculum areas of Practical Life, Sensorial,

Maths, Language, Environmental and Art. Within

any of these areas there are activities that vary from

simple to complex so that each child can choose

and work with activities in any area that fulfil their

current interest and curiosity.

The preschool is currently licenced for 57

children and offers both a session based and all

day programme. If you would like to have a look

around please feel free to ring for an appointment.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

Koru Clinic

welcomes Dr

Eloise Dickie

Koru Clinic welcomes Dr

Eloise Dickie to its staff.

Dr Dickie has focused her medical

interests in Cosmetic Medicine and Skin

Cancer management. She has had a number

of years’ experience in the latter, most

recently completing Certificates in Skin

Cancer Medicine and Dermoscopy through

the Australasian Skin Cancer College.

In her Cosmetic Medicine practice,

Dr Dickie believes in focusing on subtly

enhancing natural beauty, rather than

performing obvious or overdone treatments.

She enjoys consulting from the boutique

practice environment that Koru Clinic

offers, where patients feel both welcomed

and comfortable throughout their

experience, from the initial consultation

and procedure, to managed after care.

Most popular seasonal treatments

at Koru Clinic;

Skin cancer checks; Our doctors at

Koru Clinic are qualified and experienced

at performing regular skin cancer and mole

checks. If you are worried about any moles,

book in for a full body skin cancer check.

IPL for pigment reduction: As Summer

nears its end, we all start to think about the

unwanted effects of the summer sun. IPL

(Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is the

most effective way to remove extra pigment

and in so doing smooth your complexion.

Removing extra pigment is probably the

single most dramatic improvement you will

make to your complexion, by lightening

and brightening it. Our Koru staff are

experienced at using IPL to achieve the

outcome you are wanting. We can also

help with suggestions on minimising or

reversing some of the other effects of too

much sun.

Botulinum toxin treatments for summer

wrinkles: Wrinkles can be abolished or

reduced with sensitively applied botulinum

toxin treatments. At Koru Clinic all our

injectable treatments are performed by

highly trained medical staff, who aim to

provide you with a natural, rested look.

Our doctors are trained through a rigorous

training course delivered by the New

Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine, the

only cosmetic medicine training course in

New Zealand.

Koru Clinic specialises in natural

enhancement through medical expertise,

and will assess your skin, and develop a

treatment plan that suits you.

Koru Clinic is located at

31 Colombo Street. Call
