Train victim

amputee

faces

challenges

Morgan Jones was left blind

and an amputee after a horrific

accident – but he is still taking

on dance competitions and

adventure challenges

• By Gabrielle Stuart

MORGAN JONES was six, travelling by train

through Kaikoura when he fell through a safety rail

and onto the tracks below.

He was left with horrific injuries – blind, with his

right leg amputated and one side of his body partially

paralysed.

Tranz Rail was taken to

court over the accident, but

was cleared of criminal

negligence. A settlement was

reached with Mr Jones’ family

outside court.

Now 29, he has been able

to do more than he thought

was possible - including

competing in a dance competition

and taking on an

adventure trip.

Ministry

rejected

hospital

car park

building

• By Gabrielle Stuart

A PLAN for a 700-space car park

near Christchurch Hospital was

rejected two years ago, because a

Ministry of Health group decided

there was “not expected demand

for it.”

But the Canterbury District

Health Board and NZ Nurses Organisation

disagreed at the time,

saying car parks would be needed.

It comes as parking problems

around the hospital have reached

crisis level, with patients missing

appointments and at least two

hospital staff assaulted this year

while walking to their cars.

The Ministry of Health wrote to

the CDHB in June, 2015, saying

it was taking over responsibility

for earthquake rebuild projects,

including “proposed car parking

projects”.

It said they would become the

responsibility of the Governmentappointed

Hospital Redevelopment

Partnership Group, and

contracts for the projects would

be managed by the Ministry of

Health.

In December, 2015, the HRPG

commissioned Deloitte to carry

out a review of car parking need

around Christchurch Hospital.

It looked at a range of options

including building a 700-space car

parking building, but rejected the

idea because it said “there is not

expected demand for it in the next

five years and future demand and

supply beyond that is uncertain.”

MORGAN JONES was sixyears-old

when he fell through

a safety rail on a train to

the tracks below. He lost his

sight, a limb and was partially

paralysed. He is now 29 and

has won a dance competition,

rock climbed and earned a

University degree.

But there is one challenge he

cannot get past at the moment

– getting a job. He is taking

it in his stride, concentrating

his efforts on other goals, but

wouldn’t it be wonderful to see

him employed. Hopefully, we

will have a encouraging update

soon.

Hagley Park and cricket are

two words that can bring up a

lot of emotion. When reporter

Bridget Rutherford started

working on the article on page

3, there was chatter in the

newsroom between cricket diehards

and those who could see

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the first championship cycle meeting, at Hagley

Park on April 17, 1880. On the same day in 1983 Dr Robert Runcie,

the Archbishop of Canterbury, visited the city. On April 19, 1873, the

Christchurch Golf Club was formed. The first course was in Hagley

Park. April 20, 1849, Captain Thomas (in a letter to Sir George Grey)

reveals that he has chosen the present site of Christchurch for the new

settlement – in spite of the fact that both the Nelson and Otago colonists

had rejected it in 1841 and 1844 respectively. On April 20, 1938, the first

Inter-Dominion trotting event in New Zealand was held at Addington

Raceway. Originally scheduled for Easter, the contest was postponed

because of flooding throughout the city. Further flooding after the first

races delayed the finals until May 4. On April 22, 1869, the Duke of Edinburgh

visited. It was New Zealand’s first visit by a royal. On April 23,

1895, the regular Lyttelton to Wellington ferry service started.

TAKE CARE WITH TOADSTOOLS

THere is a shroom boom in

Christchurch as fungi flourish

with the recent rain. A long period

of drought followed by a wet

autumn has sparked a spectacular

showing of varied mushroom and

other fungal species. City council

botanist Trevor Partridge said the

rain had created ideal growing

conditions and toadstools and

mushrooms were popping up in

large numbers. He said a number

were poisonous, so they should not

be eaten.

Fines for Hagley Oval breaches

• By Bridget Rutherford

• By Shannon Gillies

create a bronze statue of Richie

McCaw, which will stand in

Kurow.

Mr Whyte was selected by the

Kurow Museum Committee to

create their tribute to the former

NOT OUT: Initially Hands off Hagley’s

Martin Meehan tried to hit the Hagley

Oval development out of the park,

but now he is trying to stop more city

council money going into it.

CANTERBURY CRICKET has

continued to breach its resource

consent at Hagley Oval since it

was controversially turned into

an international cricket ground.

Figures released to The Star

show Canterbury Cricket has

been issued nine infringement

notices since October 2014, and

charged $1800 in fines.

Most of them were for failure

to pack up equipment used for

matches, such as portaloos,

television scaffolding and

perimeter fencing, within a day

of the match. There were two

notices issued in 2014, four in

2015 – two of which no action

was taken – and three last year.

Since October 2014, the city

council had received 39 complaints,

with the most recent on

February 25.

They included difficulties

with traffic management during

matches, the late removal of

equipment, and concerns the

pavilion car parks were closed.

Hands off Hagley spokesman

Martin Meehan said the city

council was spending about

$1 million on upgrades for the

cricket season.

He could not understand why

when the consent continued to

be breached.

The upgrades included

$40,000 on sun shades, $125,000

on aluminium temporary steps,

a $105,000 service vehicle roadway

to stop the ground from

getting muddy, and embankment

repairs of $20,000.

Mr Meehan said a city council

staff member told the group the

removable sight screens cost

$460,000.

He said Canterbury and New

Zealand Cricket should pay for

upgrades.

The only people that benefit

is cricket, and the rest of us pick

up the cost,” he said.

Mr Germon said the number

of breaches was reducing each

Mr Whyte said the

Construction of the East Frame

residential development has

begun. A sod-turning ceremony

was held yesterday to kick

start the construction of the

first 20 terrace homes in the

development known as ‘superlot

4’, on the corner of Hereford St

and Latimer Square. Following

that, construction would begin

on two other sites within the

HISTORIC COTTAGE OPENS

Stoddart Cottage is the oldest

building in Diamond Harbour

and after receiving extensive

repair work due to earthquake

damage it reopened yesterday.

The cottage was closed for a year

while city council contractors

completed work on the heritage

listed building. The cottage is used

partially as a gallery and partially

as a community space for people

to explore. The Stoddart Cottage

Trust chairwoman Paula Smith

hopes that now it is reopened it will

attract more people from the city.

CHASE ABANDONED

Dangerous driving and high

speeds gave police no choice but

to abandon a pursuit in Yaldhurst

early on Wednesday morning.

Police attempted to pull over

the stolen Toyota station wagon

on Old West Coast Rd at about

1.40am. The driver refused to stop

and led police on a “dangerous”

pursuit which was abandoned

shortly after it started. The car

had been stolen earlier on Tuesday

night from Strowan, a police

communications spokeswoman

said.

No charges after attack

• By Andrew King

NO CHARGES have been

laid after a central city

attack that left a woman

in an induced coma with a

crushed windpipe.

On February 25, Amelia

Rayner, 29, was punched

in the throat when her and

her boyfriend were leaving

the Electric Avenue festival

at Hagley Park about 11pm.

While in hospital she

had an operation to have

a metal plate inserted

into her throat to help her

breathe.

Detective Senior Sergeant

Mark Worner told The Star

police have not laid any

charges yet in relation to

the attack, but would not

say why.

“I cannot go into specifics

of that case,” he said.

Police have interviewed

a man believed to have

caused her injury.

Ms Rayner’s father

Gary Rayner said he would

not comment on the outcome.

He said he has engaged a

lawyer.

“It wasn’t going anywhere

so we have got a lawyer

to follow up just what is

happening,” he said.

Hospital car park rejected Man killed paragliding

•From page 1

It concluded existing car parking

in the area was enough to

meet demand in the short and

medium-term.

Canterbury District Health

Board chief executive David

Meates confirmed to The Star he

wrote to the Ministry of Health

disputing the projection.

But he refused to talk about

what he wrote or the Government’s

response afterward, saying

he did not want to “criticise

another agency”.

Health board member Andrew

Dickerson said the CDHB had

been left with its hands tied because

responsibility for car park

decisions had been taken away.

There was considerable

concern that Deloitte had significantly

underestimated the future

demand,” he said.

NZ Nurses Organisation organiser

Lynley Mulrine said the

need for more parking near the

hospital had been raised regularly

for at least a decade, but the Government

was “not listening”.

‘was a fine soldier’

• By Andrew King

THE PARAGLIDER who died

after crashing into the Port Hills

was a “fine soldier” who served

overseas.

James Maaka, a New Zealand

Defence Force soldier, died on

Tuesday while paragliding in the

Port Hills. He was 25.

Deputy chief of army Brigadier

Christopher Parsons said

in a statement yesterday that

Mr Maaka came from a strong

military family.

“He was a fine soldier, avid

paraglider and his regiment

knew him as a good bloke,” he

said.

Mr Maaka was a serving

member of the 2nd Engineer

Regiment based in Burnham.

He was awarded the NZ

General Service Medal, the NZ

Vandals no match for Hatch

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHEN A cold, half-hatched

swan egg was taken to the SPCA

last week, there wasn’t much

hope for its survival.

But the cygnet named Hatch

has defied the odds.

He was found in a deserted

nest at Westlake Reserve in

Halswell after vandals terrorised

his family. His parents and two

siblings managed to escape, but

Hatch was left behind until a

passerby found him and rushed

him into the SPCA.

“Only Hatch’s beak was

peeking out of the egg and [the

person who found him] was very

concerned,” SPCA Canterbury

spokesperson Anna King said.

“We did our best to keep the

egg warm and took it in our animal

ambulance to our friends at

the Wildlife Hospital to hatch.”

Once Hatch came out of his

egg, staff at the South Island

Wildlife Hospital tried to reunite

him with his family – but the

attempt was unsuccessful.

Veterinarian Pauline Howard

says Hatch was stomped when

he tried to join his family, so he

would have to be hand-raised

before it was decided what to do

with him.

PEEKABOO: With just his

beak poking out of an egg,

Hatch was taken to the SPCA

where he was given little

chance of survival.

“Ideally, we would release him,

but there is a female swan at

Willowbank and he could go in

as a mate for her,” she said.

Ms Howard said Hatch would

be moved around different foster

homes so he didn’t get too used

to being in one place.

The big thing is we don’t want

him to bond too much with people,

because then he thinks he’s a

person rather than a swan.

“We do things like have

FLUFFY: Now a fluffy little bundle, Hatch is looking for a

caregiver.

mirrors around so he can see

himself, and have fluffy toys to

cuddle into.”

Hatch also had to be taught

how to eat, as usually that was

the job of the parents to teach

their cygnets – but his first foster

carer did a “great job” of teaching

him to feed himself.

Hatch would spend the next

few months in foster homes until

the South Island Wildlife Hospital

found a permanent place for

him to live.

Morgan faces

challenges

•From page 1

He took home a trophy from

the NZ World Latin Dance

Cup competition last month –

although he won by default as the

only dancer in the category.

He also went to the Give It A

Go! youth amputee camp in New

Plymouth this month, where he

conquered rock climbing, abseiling

and a giant rope course.

“I tell people I’m not scared

of heights, I’m just scared of the

dark,” he said.

But Mr Jones has struggled to

get a job.

He used technology like a

“talking computer” to complete a

Bachelor of Science at Canterbury

University in 2013, hoping to work

in conservation.

“I always loved and wanted to

protect the environment,” he said.

But in spite of several placements,

he could not get work.

He then completed a medical

terminology paper – but once he

finished the course, he said no

companies would hire him.

“I’d be happy to do anything,

but even supermarket jobs I can’t

do,” he said.

Instead he is concentrating

on his dancing, and creating a

sanctuary for native birds in his

backyard.

HISTORIC: The Nurse

Maude building in

Merivale received a

$345,000 heritage

incentive grant

for restoration.

DETERIORATED: The old

Public Trust building has

been saved from demolition

after a $1.9 million landmark

heritage grant.

Heritage grants –

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE THAN $19 million of

ratepayer money has been spent

on restoring heritage buildings

following the February 2011

earthquake – and advocates say

it’s money well spent.

The city council sets aside

$763,000 every year to use for

heritage incentive grants. It also

gives out central city landmark

heritage grants for larger projects.

Figures

released to The

Star show the

city council has

given $5,725,557

from its heritage

Anna

Crighton

incentive grant

fund over the

last six years.

On top of that, it gave

$10,942,500 in landmark

heritage grants, and $2,650,000

to restoring the Arts Centre

buildings.

The money is used to restore

and repair buildings with

heritage status, listed under the

district plan.

They are subject to a covenant

being put on the property so

it protects the building for the

future.

DAMAGED: McLean’s Mansion got a $1.9million central city

landmark heritage grant so it can be turned it into an art gallery.

Owners can apply for up to

50 per cent of the cost of eligible

work and it could include the fees

of registered architects, engineers

and quantity surveyors.

They are paid after the work

has been finished.

Some of the buildings that

got heritage incentive grants

included the Nurse Maude Clinic

in Merivale, which got $345,000,

New Regent St buildings and a

number of residential homes.

Addington’s Woods Mill buildings

have been given two grants,

but the first one of $884,750 went

back into the fund because it was

not used.

A new developer has received

$900,000 to turn the buildings

into a commercial and retail

complex.

POPPY

FUNERALS

Refreshingly different...

A fresh new face to funerals has stepped on the scene in the form of Poppy Funerals.

The family owned and operated business has a refreshingly different approach to

funerals. In the past, the only options available to families were those instructed by the

funeral directors. This is not how Poppy Funerals feels funeral arrangements should be.

“Families are best placed to know the right way to farewell their loved one. It’s not our

place to tell them how they should grieve. When a family calls us to arrange funerals for

their special person, we do what they want. If they want a traditional mournful funeral

we will do that. But if they want a BBQ in the park, or a party to say good bye – we will

do that too. Funerals have changed over the years, and it’s about time we as funeral

directors changed with the times too. Our staff try to be bright and cheerful. There is

enough sadness around when a person passes. We want to have the celebration of their

life shine through the sadness.”

It is Funeral Directors Jazz and Steve’s intention to change the world we live in,

one funeral at a time. “We are a normal down to earth family, and I know when my

time comes I want a down to earth sort of person there to help my family through.”

Poppy Funerals are focused on family’s needs, offering services from Direct Cremation

to full Celebration of Life burials or cremations, as well as a DIY option where by

Poppy Funerals will do as much or as little as you want. Not being owned by

multi-national or large corporations they have the flexibility to actually meet your needs.

‘money well spent’

Central city landmark heritage

grants have included buildings

such as McLean’s

Mansion, which

received $1.9 million,

$1.7 million

for Christchurch

Club, and the former

Public Trust

Yani

Johanson

building owners

got $1.9 million

last month to

save the building.

Christchurch Heritage Trust

chairwoman Anna Crighton said

every dollar spent on heritage

protection was “a dollar well

spent”.

She said there were strict rules

on what building’s qualified for

grants.

“Otherwise it’s just ratepayer

money just being thrown away.”

She said there were many projects

that needed money following

the February 2011 earthquake, but

for her, heritage buildings were a

priority.

“Once you’ve lost it, it’s gone

forever.”

City councillor Yani Johanson

said following the earthquakes,

the heritage incentive grant

scheme became more

important.

“Heritage became absolutely

critical post-quake.”

City councillor Jamie Gough

said restoring heritage buildings

was difficult because it was time

consuming and costly.

The scheme made it a bit easier

for owners to preserve the buildings,

and it showed the city valued

its historic fabric, he said.

grants, but the first went back

was dropped.

Wesley Mauafu

Passion for helping Pasifika community

Wesley Mauafu is

passionate about helping

Pasifika young people,

whether it’s fighting high

suicide rates or inspiring

them to have a voice in

politics. Last week he was

invited to Parliament to

receive a New Zealand

Youth Award for his work.

He spoke to Gabrielle

Stuart

Why is the issue of suicide so

important to you personally?

It started four years ago, when

I did my first suicide prevention

training. I went as a fresh-faced

young guy, and to be honest, I

was so oblivious to the horrific

statistics of my own Pasifika

young people. They have so

much potential and so much

to give to the community as a

whole, so when I found out we

were perishing and struggling

with our well-being it hit home

a lot. From that day, every time

I have seen a programme or

initiative aimed at well-being, I

am always keen to put my hand

up and say yes, let’s do this. Our

group, PYLET, is the council for

Pacific Youth Leadership and

Transformation. Through this,

we are seriously saving Pasifika

young people’s lives. That’s the

motivation for me.

Do you approach things differently

when you’re working

specifically with Pasifika youth?

I definitely think we do. It’s

little things like understanding

our values. We’re brought up in

our family environment with

last year.

fa’aaloalo, which is the Samoan

word for respect, and tautua,

which means service. So service

comes into the community

work that we do, and respect

means respecting our elders.

Understanding our cultural

values helps us work better with

Pasifika youth.

The Pasifika community in

Christchurch is quite tight-knit,

right? Is that a strength, when

you’re fighting something like

suicide?

Well, we originally held three

suicide prevention workshops

and something we found was,

yes, we do have a very strong

community, but within Pacific

cultures there are also a lot of

stigmas we had to try to get rid

of before we could talk about the

actual issues. They were things

like we should sweep it under the

rug, because if we talk to young

people about suicide it might

plant the seed of suicide in their

mind. We also have to bring

down the stigma that you should

feel ashamed if someone in your

family has taken their own life.

We need to communicate with

our young people and our elders

that it’s okay to talk about it and

there is no shame in it, because

we are all going through hard

times. The next question is, how

do you talk to people about it?

That’s what we’re trying now

to impart to our Pasifika community.

and battling suicide earns youth award

That must be particularly important

since the earthquakes?

Definitely. We’re over-represented

when it comes to things

like mental health problems and

depression. A lot of our Pasifika

young people and community

live on the east side, and a lot of

us in the red zone felt we were

treated unfairly – not myself personally,

but it’s something I hear

a lot. It took a long time for the

Canterbury rebuild to make its

way to the east side, for our roads

to be fixed, for our houses to be

fixed. The feeling was, does our

city really care about us, when

it looked like the more well-off

on the other side of the city were

being taken care of first.

So what was the experience at

Parliament like?

It was fantastic. We met with

National MP Nuk Korako and

went to the gallery in Parliament

to watch David Cunliffe’s valedictory

speech, which was awesome.

It was actually my second time

going to Parliament, but the first

time going with my mum and my

sister, which was fantastic to do.

The best thing was that child-like

feeling, when I looked at my

mum and thought, yes, my mum

thinks I’m cool. In terms of the

community work I do, I guess my

friends and family know what I

do, but I don’t really talk in depth

about it. For my family, the only

time they really hear what I do is

when I get an award, so it’s pretty

special. And I’m a ‘mumma’s

boy’, so I just think if my mum

thinks I’m cool, I’m doing something

right in my life.

If it was your second time at

Parliament, when was the first?

I was part of a group presenting

to the Standing Orders Select

Committee, which sets the rules

that dictate how Parliament runs.

We went there saying if you want

more young people to vote and

be involved in democracy, you

need to make changes. They were

things like better utilisation of

Parliament TV and being able

to use your cellphones in Parliament.

And tell me a bit about your

life and interests outside of this

work?

To be honest, this takes a lot of

my life, and I really enjoy doing

this. But I do have other interests.

I play rugby for the Sumner

division 1 team. I’ve always loved

rugby. And I’m an engineering

student at Canterbury University,

currently second year in the civil

engineering department. Hopefully,

I should be done next year.

So you’re planning a career as

an engineer?

I still haven’t fully figured out

what kind of engineering I want

to do, but long term, yes, I want

to be a civil engineer. Short term,

I would love to travel, maybe

use the fact I can play rugby to

see the world, if I could play for

a European team somewhere.

I’d like to widen my experience

and then bring that back home.

But short and long term, I want

to keep working for my Pasifika

young people, in whatever capacity

I’m in.

And for the average person on

the street, is there anything we

can do day-to-day to help fight

suicide and mental illness?

It seems like such an airy-fairy

answer, but just a smile and a

bit of kindness goes a long way.

Having the courage to step out

in faith and ask someone if they

are okay, even if you don’t know

them, whether it’s an outlier in

a crowd, or if it’s a friend who

seems to be acting a tiny bit different.

These are signs, invitations

we call them, to go and talk to

them. Ask them, are you okay?

But at the same time, don’t expect

to be the answer and save their

life, just be there to listen and to

guide them to an actual professional

or counsellor. Don’t feel

the burden, because if something

does go wrong it’s not your fault.

Whatever you can give to a person,

your time or your presence,

is enough.

Free weekend car parks

in central city mooted

• By Bridget Rutherford

FREE CAR parking in

the weekends is being

investigated in a bid to

bring more people back

into the central city.

The city council is looking

into whether free car

parking could be offered

on the weekends in the

central city as an enticement.

City council transport

operations manager Aaron

Haymes said it was considering

temporary free parking,

but it had not made a

final decision.

The car parks would be

council controlled parks

but the locations are still

under consideration.”

He said it would make

a decision within the next

Aaron Haymes

few weeks after consultation

with businesses and

other parking stakeholders.

There had been substantial

private investment in

car parking buildings, so

it was important not to

undermine that, he said.

City councillor Deon

Swiggs asked staff to

look into it.

“It’s about getting people

back to the central city to

try it out. If they have a

good experience, they will

come back again.”

Central City Business

Association chairman

Brendan Chase said the

idea came up at a summit

the association held and

it would be good for business.

He said another idea was

if someone bought something

at a shop or cafe, they

could be reimbursed for

their car parking fee, or

could get a free ride home

on public transport.

More people were returning

to the central city,

and it was only going to

improve, he said.

Students study life on Mars

• By Ashleigh Monk

WHEN THE time comes

to pack our bags and head

for Mars, Christchurch

youths will be wellprepared.

The Ara Institute of Canterbury

is hosting a series

of workshops to teach high

school students how to get

to Mars, and how to survive

when they’re there.

And though it may raise

a few eyebrows, living on

Mars is not that far off

according to National

Aeronautics and Space

Administration.

NASA predicts a crew,

called Daedalus, will

make the nine-month trip

to Mars in the 2030s to

establish shelter, food and

water sources for future

newcomers.

So in New Zealand’s July

holidays, Ara will be teaching

high school students all

the necessary knowledge

on how to be a good Mars

resident.

At 96 per cent carbon

dioxide and just one per

cent oxygen, the air on

Mars is unbreathable, so

the Daedalus crew will use

electrolosis to convert carbon

dioxide into oxygen.

They will also establish a

hospitable shelter to protect

humans from the temperature

extremes Mars

displays, along with hydroponic

farming and other

methods to grow food.

Parasites could cure

gluten allergies

• By Gabrielle Stuart

ABOUT 20 brave

Cantabrians have

volunteered to be infected

with hookworm parasites

– in an effort to find a cure

for coeliac disease.

An

Australian

pilot study

discovered

people with

severe gluten

allergies

Richard

Gearry

who were

also infected

with

hookworms

did not have reactions

when they ate gluten.

A group of Christchurch

researchers have just received

a $20,000 from the

Lottery Grants Board to

start a similar trial.

They hope to find out exactly

how the hookworms

prevent the allergic reactions,

so they can turn that

substance into a pill.

Otago University

gastroenterology professor

Richard Gearry said

extreme cases of coeliac

disease could have a major

impact on people’s quality

of life, and he was hopeful

the trial could help find a

cure.

But even if a cure was

discovered, he said it

would take a long time to

reach shelves.

“We are talking years,

because the pipeline for

a new drug is at least 10

years,” he said.

War brewing over memorial relocation

• By Bridget Rutherford

A MEMORIAL commemorating

Cantabrians who died in World

War 1 is embroiled in the Christ

Church Cathedral saga – and the

central city RSA has had enough.

Christchurch Memorial RSA

is about to begin discussions

with the city council to have the

cenotaph moved to Cranmer

Square before it deteriorates any

further.

The Citizens’ War

Memorial currently sits on

Anglican Diocese land next

to the Cathedral, but it is the

responsibility of the city council.

It has been fenced off since the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

RSA president Pete Dawson

said they wanted it moved

in time for Armistice Day

commemorations next year –

which will mark a century since

World War 1 ended.

“If we rely on the Government

and the church to get action

here, we’ll be waiting forever,”

he said.

“We’re going to be engaging

with the council shortly.”

He said Cathedral Square was

not suitable to hold the Anzac

Day dawn service anymore

URGENT: Paul O’Connor is spearheading a project to have the Citizens’ War Memorial moved to

Cranmer Square.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

because it was too small.

Cranmer Square, where the

commemorations are now held,

had significance because it was a

military camp during the Great

War.

The diocese is allowed to

request the cenotaph be moved,

but it would need to get resource

consent.

A Church Property Trust

spokesman said it would respect

any decision agreed by the city

council and other stakeholders

about the cenotaph’s future.

Paul O’Connor, who is helping

with the moving project, said the

cenotaph was “in the shadow of

that shambles of a Cathedral.”

“It’s the wider Canterbury

memorial to all of those who lost

their lives and we’re treating it

poorly.”

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said there was

no budget to move the cenotaph,

and it had no plans to do so at

this stage.

Trail will be an asset

CANTABRIANS will soon be

able to enjoy a riverside trail

running along the banks of

the Avon River through the

residential red zone.

The 12km transitional Avon

Trail will open in stages from

spring and will allow Cantabrians

and city visitors to walk, run or

cycle from Barbadoes St in the

central city to Pages Rd in New

Brighton.

The whole trail will be completed

and open by early next year.

Construction of the first section

of Avon Trail will start this

month from Retreat Rd/Avonside

Dr through to the Gayhurst Rd

Bridge.

The trail will be prepared at

the same time as the upgrade of

the temporary stop banks. By

smoothing the top of the stop

banks and adding a fine gravel

surface, the trail will be suitable

for a wide range of uses.

The Avon-Otakoro Network is

leading the project, and community

volunteers will help prepare

some sections of the trail. Regenerate

Christchurch has been helping

co-ordinate the work, and

funding has been provided by the

Ministry of Social Development

to the Avon-Otakoro Network.

Gerry Brownlee

Now that the former red zone

has mostly been cleared and

grassed, we can see the potential

of the river corridor.

The Avon Trail is an opportunity

for the public to explore this

area, and I encourage everyone

to do so.

It is an exciting asset for Christchurch,

and an innovative way to

get Cantabrians moving from the

city to the sea.

The trail is great news for our

city, and will help to promote the

regeneration of New Brighton. It

will allow everyone easy access to

the lower Avon and surrounding

red zone.

The transitional trail will remain

in use for at least two years,

as the larger regeneration operation

unfolds around it. Further

opportunities for a permanent

connection from the city to the

sea will be explored later.

This is an important area of

regeneration, and will impact

Christchurch’s future. It is the

first step in creating a peoplefriendly,

green space in our city.

•Gerry Brownlee is

Minister supporting Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

•Megan Woods, p23

Last week The Star

reported the city council

was looking at setting up

an online hub that had

information for residents

and visitors about

Christchurch as part of the

Smart Cities programme.

Peter Parr, of Southbridge –

At last I’ve come to understand

that the city council believes,

and rightly so, that the public is

stupid, ignorant, unobservant

and gullible.

We’re to get new technologies

with an online hub where we can

get all the information we need

about Christchurch (The Star

April 13). It’s all in the wording,

‘info we need’ not what we may

actually want – like what the city

council is planning, actually doing

or spends our rates on.

The council wrote to me “red

arrow protections is required

when either pedestrians or cyclists

are using the crossing.” Sounds

straight forward but ‘are using’

is not true. In reality the aforementioned

phantom crossers get

an auto green at the expense of

real vehicles waiting to turn. No

wonder we have traffic problems

and frustrated drivers.

I asked the council if the new

Riccarton Rd/Ave light set-up

would be used as a template for

the rest of Christchurch. The

answer was no, that was true

because the city was/is already

being set-up with red-lighting

actual traffic so non-existent

cyclists can have an auto green

light.

The council man claimed a

‘max of 66 vehicles an hour’ turn

right, (east) off Deans to Riccarton

Ave but said they don’t

know how many bikes go north/

south. Interesting that another

newspaper quoted the city council

as claiming 1300 cyclists use

the Hagley Park route each week

day, maybe the new ‘online hub’

will know the real figure.

Will our ‘new hub’ have how

much the city council has spent

on cycle lanes over the last few

years and how much is budgeted

in the next several, will they be

toll-ways to recoup the cost?

Will the new hub have the

number of cars, adult cyclists,

electric vehicles use the likes of

Colombo St, Papanui Rd, Riccarton

Rd and St Asaph Sts?

So many questions but we’ll

have to wait on the answers.

Hard fight for fair wage

TAKE A bow, Kristine

Bartlett.

Your courage, perseverance

and determination to

fight for a fair wage have

made a huge difference to

lives of thousands of workers.

But, as you are the first

to remind everyone, you

did not do this as a lone

individual.

It was your workmates

through your union which

banded together with

you to take a stand that

is life-changing for the

55,000 mainly women care

workers it affects. You are

modern day heroes.

The road to this settlement

has not been easy. It

started back in 2012 when

Kristine, an aged-care

worker from Upper Hutt

fronted union legal action

against her employer TerraNova.

The pay equity claim

brought by E Tū (previously

the Service and Food

Workers Union) argued

that her employer was

under-paying staff because

of the high percentage of

female employees.

It is the first legal

settlement in New Zealand

which recognises that

some jobs pay less because

they are done mainly by

women.

This claim was fought

in the courts by powerful

interests. The Government

itself had lawyers at each

appeal stage of the original

case opposing lower court

decisions.

Throughout the five

years, Kristine and her

union have told the

story of a group of mainly

women who dreaded getting

sick because they can’t

afford to go to the doctor,

who come to work without

food, who walk to work in

the rain because they don’t

have the bus fare.

All the while we were

expecting these women to

do incredibly important

work caring for some of

the most vulnerable in our

society. This simply was

not fair.

So, this week we have

seen a victory for what

is right and the power of

banding together to stand

up for those rights. For the

20,000 workers currently

on the minimum wage of

$15.75 per hour, on July 1

they will move to at least

$19 per hour.

For a full-time worker,

this means they will be

taking home around an

extra $100 a week, which

is over $5000 a year.

Essential Guide to China’s

“Two Sessions”

The annual political sessions in China have drawn worldwide

attention as the fifth sessions of the 12th National People’s Congress

(NPC) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference

(CPPCC), known as the “two sessions”(Lianghui), concluded in

March. However, the “two sessions”, and what they entail, are not fully

understood by many Chinese and overseas observers.

“TWO SESSIONS” IN CHINA’S POLITICAL CALENDAR

The term “two

sessions” refers to the

plenary sessions of

the National People’s

Congress (NPC)

and the National

Committee of the

Chinese People’s

Political Consultative

Conference (CPPCC).

The two are held in

early March every

year. Those formal

but wordy titles are difficult to remember, even for Chinese speakers,

therefore, the Chinese moniker “two sessions” (lianghui) was coined.

More than 5000 NPC deputies and members of CPPCC National

Committee attend the sessions. Among them, are top leaders,

renowned economists, entrepreneurs, artists and sportsmen and

representatives from all walks of life. NPC deputies can submit

motions, which are legally binding once adopted, while members of

the CPPCC National Committee can only put forward no-binding

proposals. During the sessions, the central government will reveal

its annual work report, which includes the official gross domestic

product (GDP) forecast as well as information on other major

policies.

NPC AS THE SuPREmE ORgAN Of STATE POWER

According to the Constitution, the NPC is the fundamental political

system in China, with about 2.6 million deputies at various levels.

At the pinnacle of the system sits the NPC which exercises more

than a dozen functions and powers, including the supervision of

the enforcement of the constitution. The central government, the

Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate

answer to the NPC and are supervised by it. The NPC Standing

Committee, a permanent body of the NPC has been active in

inspecting whether governments comply with the law. In 2016, it

conducted six inspections, covering about 30 provinces, autonomous

regions and municipalities.

The NPC representatives include people from various backgrounds

and cover a good cross-section of society. Direct election applies

in the selection of township and county-level deputies, while the

deputies at the prefecture, provincial and national levels are elected

by lower level deputies.

NPC deputies at various levels are key channels for community

voices, reflecting local opinions and problems and enabling people

to be masters of the nation. Deputies are both entitled and obliged to

stand for the people’s interests and express their requests.

NPC deputies are not divided into different caucuses according to

party background but into 35 delegations based on where they are

elected from, including 31 provinces, autonomous regions and

municipalities, in addition to Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and the

military. Such an arrangement is pragmatic, given China’s large

territory and huge population, and ensures that NPC deputies are

true representatives of the people.

Though they are part-time, NPC deputies are actively engaged in state

affairs. At the annual full session, they review and vote on important

legal documents and personnel changes, including electing president

and vice president of China every five years, as well as submit

motions and proposals. Since 2005, around 500 motions have been

submitted by deputies to every annual session of the NPC. When not

in session, they interact with the people, take up training programs,

and participate in inspections of law enforcement and surveys on

important or urgent issues.

OuTCOmE Of NPC ANNuAL SESSION

This year, among 2,838 NPC deputies present at the closing meeting

of NPC annual session, 2,812 voted in favor of the government work

report; 2,793 for the work report of the NPC Standing Committee;

2,606 for the work report of the Supreme People’s Court; and 2,606

for the work report of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate.

Lawmakers also approved the General Provisions of the Civil Law, the

decision on the quota and election of deputies to the next 13th NPC

to be convened from 2018, and the methods for electing deputies to

the 13th NPC from Hong Kong and Macao special administrative

regions. Other documents approved by the lawmakers included the

2017 national economic and social development plan, and the 2017

central and local budgets.

CPPCC AS TOP POLITICAL ADvISORy bODy

The CPPCC is an important platform on which various political

parties, people’s organizations, and people of all ethnic groups and

from all sectors of society work together democratically participating

in state affairs. As China’s top political advisory body, CPPCC

facilitates China’s multiparty cooperation and political consultation

mechanism.

The main functions of the CPPCC are to conduct political

consultation, exercise democratic supervision and participate in the

discussion and the handling of state affairs. Political consultation

covers major principles and policies proposed by the central and

local governments and matters of importance concerning political,

economic, cultural and social affairs. Democratic supervision means

offering suggestion and criticism, as well as supervision over the

implementation of the Constitution, other laws, regulations and

major policies, and over the work of government agencies and their

functionaries.

CPPCC members come from China’s various walks of life and ethnic

groups. Most of the CPPCC members are experienced political

figures, social celebrities, and experts and scholars specializing in

various fields.

SETTINg ACHIEvAbLE gROWTH TARgET

One of the most important agendas of “two sessions” is revealing the

government work report. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in delivering

government work report pledged to continue reforms to attain

the economic growth target of about 6.5 percent this year despite

challenges ahead. The realistic growth target this year will help steer

and steady expectations and make structural adjustments as well as

help achieve the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in

all respects by 2020.

Last year, China’s GDP reached

74.4 trillion yuan (10.8 trillion

U.S. dollars), a 6.7-percent

growth, outpacing most other

economies and contributing

more than 30 percent of global

growth. Despite challenges,

China created 13.14 million

urban jobs and increased per

capita disposable income by

6.3 percent. About 12.4 million

people shook off poverty.

Premier Li announced that in 2017, China will keep its CPI increase

at around 3 percent, and create more than 11 million urban jobs

with a registered urban unemployment rate within 4.5 percent. The

country will also reduce its energy consumption per unit of GDP by

at least 3.4 percent. Noting that China must be ready to face more

complicated and graver situations including sluggish world economic

growth and growing trend of protectionism, Li expressed his

confidence that difficulties will be overcome as the country has a solid

material foundation, abundant human resources, a huge market, and

a complete system of industries.

ACCELERATINg SuPPLy-SIDE STRuCTuRAL REfORm

According to the government work report, efforts of supplyside

structural reform will center on a variety of areas, including

streamlining administration, reducing taxes, further expanding

market access, and reducing ineffective supply while expanding

effective supply. To be specific, China will further reduce steel

production capacity by around 50 million metric tons and coal

capacity by at least 150 million metric tons this year. It also highlighted

cutting excess urban real estate inventory, bringing down the leverage

of enterprises, reducing costs for enterprises and strengthening areas

of weakness including poverty eradication.

fuRTHER OPENINg-uP

Leaning against the anti-globalization headwinds, the Chinese

government emphasized the need to further open up the economy

and attract foreign investment. While joining a panel discussion

during the “two sessions”, President Xi Jinping vowed the country

would keep on opening up on all fronts. Premier Li Keqiang also

detailed unprecedented opening-up measures to the outside world in

the government work report.

According to the report, significant improvements will be made

in the environment for foreign investment. Service industries,

manufacturing and mining will be more open to foreign investment.

Foreign firms will be able to get listed on China’s stock markets and

issue bonds. They will also be allowed to participate in national science

and technology projects. Foreign firms will be treated the same as

domestic firms in

license applications,

standards setting,

and government

procurement, and

will enjoy the same

preferential policies

under the Made in

China 2025 initiative,

a plan to modernize

the manufacturing

sector.

Moreover, China will open its door wider and import more products

and technologies from overseas. And China will extend the practice

of processing international trade through a single window, which

enables cross-border traders to submit regulatory documents at a

single location and thus improves efficiency. The authorities will

achieve nationwide integration of customs clearance procedures this

year.

SAfEguARDINg PEACE AND STAbILITy IN ASIA-PACIfIC

At a press conference after the conclusion of the “two sessions”,

Premier Li Keqiang stressed China hopes to see continued peace and

stability in the Asia-Pacific region. He said Asia-Pacific is the common

home for all countries in this region, and China does not want to see

any party feeling compelled to choose sides under the influence of the

Cold War mentality. China hopes that the Asia-Pacific region will be

one that enjoys good order and stability, a region that is able to work

out issues through consultation and principles, properly manage

differences and has the wisdom to resolve differences.

Premier Li mentioned China and ASEAN have been pushing

forward consultation on the Code of Conduct (COC) in the South

China Sea, and substantial

progress has been made in

this regard. China hopes

to see continued peace

and stability in the South

China Sea, believing

that specific disputes

should be addressed and

resolved through dialogue

among the parties directly

concerned.

He also stressed that China

and the United States have

been cooperating with each other for a long time in the Asia-Pacific

region, and there is a wide area of common interests and cooperation

between the two countries. Many U.S. multinationals have placed

their Asia-Pacific headquarters in China. He hopes the areas of

cooperation between the two countries will continue to expand.

Visiting the mystical city of Edoras

• By Mike Yardley

Latest Christchurch news at www.

Thursday April 20 2017

IT’S THE type of scenery that

screensavers are made for – Mt

Sunday, deep in the heart of the

Canterbury high country.

I always find it fascinating to

experience your own turf through

the lens of a tourist, gleaning fresh

perspectives from the outside

world on the place you call home.

Better known to movie-fans

as the mystical city of Edoras, I

recently joined a guided journey

to this spectacular cinematic location

with Hassle-free Tours.

Heading south of Christchurch,

in a comfortable six-wheel Toyota

Land Cruiser, with elevated seating

and panoramic windows, our

driver-guide, Hammond, set sail

on his illuminating, chatty commentary

on the two-hour drive.

We entered the Hakatere

Conservation Park, flanked by

the alpine lakes of Camp and

Clearwater and their tight cluster

of rustic batches. A quick photostop

to soak up the expansive

high country vistas served merely

as an appetiser for the majesty

that lay ahead.

On a heavily rutted gravel

Hakatere-Potts Rd, bracketed

in golden hills of snow tussock,

matagouri and toetoe, the most

celestial viewpoint appeared at

the Mt Potts Cutting, stretching

across the broad basin of the

Rangitata Valley, buttressed by

heroically high mountains and

sheer cliffs.

Welcome to the Kingdom of

Rohan. Much of the land belongs

to Mt Potts Station, however, in

the wake of the Lord of the Ringsinspired

popularity, DOC created

an easement to Mt Sunday aka

Edoras.

From the public car park, it’s a

15min walk up the southern spur

of Mt Sunday. However, one of

the many advantages of taking

the journey with Hassle-free

Tours is that it is the only operator

with a concession to drive past

the car park, fording the gin-clear

streams and up part of the mountain,

using the rutted track on the

northern spur, which the land

cruiser made light work of.

From there, it’s a rather effortless

stroll to the summit. Sixhundred

metres above sea level,

this rocky, protruding jewel in the

MAJESTIC: Rutted gravel

roads are no problem to the

Hassle-free Land Cruiser.

(Below) – Mt Sunday and the

Rohan sword.

middle of this insanely photogenic

valley beckoned us like a

beacon. After we’d mounted the

summit, the 360deg alpine panorama

is so enthrallingly kaleidoscopic,

so jaw-droppingly epic,

not even a month of Sundays

basking in this perspective would

become boring.

There’s Erewhon Station of

Clydesdales-fame, the serpentine

braids of the Rangitata River, the

Southern Alps, the expansive valley

trail of Potts River. The air was

so crisp and clear, the mountains

seemed magnified, with their

sharp edges and spectacular

shingle fans.

Only the sound of happilyclicking

shutters, competed

against the strengthening howls

of the wind. The wind-speed

reached 72km/h as we took in the

summit spectacle and endured an

involuntary facial exfoliation.

Notorious for wind gusts, Hammond

remarked that at the time

of shooting, the Rings crew were

buffeted by wind gusts as high as

180km/h. The real beauty of the

Hassle-free tour is all the insightful

behind-the-scenes nuggets.

On one particularly windy day,

Sir Peter Jackson’s glasses flew off

his face, over the cliff, never to be

seen again. There’s a movie relic

to hunt for.

Sir Peter stumbled upon this

cinematic location by sheer accident.

His location scouts were

choppering down to the West

Coast, but were forced to fly east

due to bad weather, chancing

upon Mt Sunday by a stroke of

sheer luck. Many of the riders

of Rohan were actually women

equipped with an arsenal of replica

posing with for obligatory photos.

A variety of movie featurettes

were played to our group, including

some cracking bloopers.

What really shone through was

how much the cast genuinely fell

in love with Mt Sunday. Driving

back to Christchurch, Hammond

finally revealed that he was Hammond

who sound engineered

After 36 years in film and

ANZAC DAY, TUESDAY APRIL 25

Honour and respect

On April 25, 1915 New Zealand and

Australian troops landed on the Gallipoli

Peninsula in Turkey in a bloody campaign

that saw 2779 New Zealanders give their

lives as well as over 100,000 Turkish,

British, French and Australian servicemen.

As news of the terrible events reached

New Zealand, there was an outpouring of

national pride in the courage shown by our

soldiers in the face of appalling adversity

and sacrifice.

That pride continues today. Since most

remembered forever on war memorials

throughout the Nation.

Anzac Day has come to symbolise the

respect of the nation for all those killed in

war, and also honours returned servicemen

and women. In Christchurch, our local

communities from Akaroa to Wigram Air

Force Museum are marking the event. This

year, the city’s Dawn Service begins at 6am

in Cranmer Square with the traditional

parade, a service and wreath-laying

ceremony. A citizens’ service will be held

at the Transitional Cathedral in Latimer

Square at 10am.

The resiliance of the Kiwi spirit is marked

on April 25 and reflected in the symbols of

courage such as the Bridge of Remembrance

Students involved in

play Anzac Eve with

the playwright. It delves into

young New Zealanders’ views

on the Gallipoli commemorations.

As well as a playwright,

Armstrong is a screenwriter,

trumpet player and columnist

who has had work feature on

stage, radio and television.

Anzac Eve is a modern-day

comedy telling the story of

four opinionated young adults

who meet the night before the

Gallipoli.

As well as focusing on the

historic material in the show,

students will study key techniques

behind acting.

“We will also have a chance

to talk about acting and how

our actors perform a role and

digest all this information and

turn it into a play,” Armstrong

said.

He said he wrote the play

because he felt the country

needed to look at Anzac Day

through different viewpoints

and was interested to know

what it meant to younger

people.

“When I was growing up

in the 1970s, I didn’t want to

be able to showcase the band’s

talents locally in Christchurch’s

latest performing arts venue

The Piano”.

Warrant Officer

Johnston said

“the venue is

ideally suited for

a traditional brass

band concert and

it will be a great

afternoon of music

making”.

The NZArmy Band’s program

will be a trip down memory

lane as the programme features

classic brass band repertoire

such as Eric Ball’s Resurgam

and Kingdom Triumphant.

The band has six current New

Zealand solo champions and

will feature three of them

during the

concert. Private

Kyle Lawson

will perform

Oasis, Lance

Corporal

Joe Thomas

will perform

Shenandoah

and Sergeant

Kevin Hickman

will perform Ave Maria.

As is appropriate with the

concert being so close to

ANZAC day, the band will also

feature Fernleaf Headstones

and Passchendaele.

Both of these pieces

were written for

the band by past

member, world

renowned composer

Dwayne Bloomfield.

Fernleaf Headstones

was written for

the repatriation of

the Unknown Warrior and

Passchendaele depicts the

tragic events of the Third Battle

of Ypres, which to this day is

still the most deadly day in New

Zealand’s wartime history. The

programme is rounded off with

a couple of classic hymns and

of course it would not be an

NZ Army Band

concert without

a march or two.

Director of

Music of the

New Zealand

Army Band

Major Graham Hickman

is excited to have the

band performing such a

traditional programme

in their home town. “The

band is in a really strong

position at the moment

with so many fine players,

including seven current

members of the 2017 National

Youth Band and 14 current or

past National Band members

within the ranks”.

“It was a massive thing on

both sides of the family . . .

one grandfather limped for

the rest of his life and died

quite young. The other had

a chest wound and coughed

every winter,” he said.

Armstrong said Anzac Eve

looks at why the country

chooses to commemorate the

war and what young New

Zealanders were doing there

in the first place.

“I think it is time to start

saying what the hell were we

doing there, why were we

there, why did such terrible

defeats occur, how did we lose

so many and are we in danger

of this happening again?”

More than 2700 New Zealanders

died in the Gallipoli

campaign.

Armstrong said he feels

some facts in war history have

been “glossed over,” including

how many French died in Gallipoli

and how Maori soldiers

were treated.

Gardening

What to grow

near fruit trees

The fascinating world of companion plants is

one to explore. Rebecca Lees writes about

how they can give your fruit trees a boost

PEACH COMRADE: Tansy

planted with ‘blackboy’

peach tree. Tansy deters

a raft of harmful flying

insects and is an excellent

companion for the fruit

garden.

COMPANION PLANTING is one

of the most enjoyable things you can

do in the fruit garden, especially if

you begin with a blank canvas.

Thanks to the interplanting of a

host of companion plants under and

around fruit trees, dull lifeless soil

over time becomes full of organic

matter, and alive with beneficial

creatures crawling amongst it. The

soil, now more fertile and robust,

can aid the trees’ growth and access

to nutrients, as well as increase

the ability for the trees (and wider

garden area) to keep pests and

disease in check.

Companions aren’t a magic wand,

there are plenty of other tasks a

gardener undertakes to ensure fruit

trees are healthy and productive, but

they’re a great tool and one I’ll never

go without.

How does it work?

Companion plants can:

•Lure pests to them and in turn

help keep those pests away from

other susceptible plants.

•Confuse pests by disturbing the

visual and chemical attributes that

help pests find host plants.

•Attract predatory insects, which

then naturally lower the pest count

in your garden.

Keep an eye out

If you’re particularly observant

you may witness companions

working their magic. You may

notice ladybirds, a predatory insect;

FRUIT FRIEND: Stinging nettle

attracts ladybirds, which eat

aphids.

or spot a praying mantis leaping

out, catching and devouring a

white butterfly. As your companion

plants become established, it’s really

exciting to see these things unfold in

your garden.

Bees

Planting to encourage bees and

other pollinators into the garden

helps with fruit-tree pollination. Try

to plant those which flower around

the same time your fruit trees

blossom. Some plants bees enjoy

(which also benefit the fruit garden)

include borage, rosemary, lemon

balm, basil, coriander, thyme and

lavender.

Comfrey

An outstanding companion plant

for fruit trees, comfrey brings up

nutrients from deep down in the

subsoil and releases them as the

leaves die back. I plant it around all

my fruit trees. It will grow from a

tiny piece of root – making it easy to

propagate, but difficult to get rid of

once you have it.

Phacelia

I sprinkle phacelia seeds wherever

there is a space in my garden. The

flowers are rich in nectar, and the

plant helps boost populations of

predatory insects.

Don’t plant grass

Many orchard floors are covered

in grass, with fruit trees, of all the

same type, neatly planted in straight

rows. This may seem pleasing to the

eye, but it is a field day for pests, and

can make it difficult for fruit trees to

grow well. Couch grass, for instance,

releases a growth inhibitor via its

roots, and this can slow or even

stunt the growth of many fruit trees.

When you must plant grass

Mix things up a bit to add

diversity and other benefits. You

could include nitrogen-fixing

clovers, lucerne, dandelions,

mustard, and allow nettles to grow

also. Stinging nettle allowed to grow

around fruit trees helps with fruit

tree health in many ways, including

being a host to predatory insects.

To attract predators

There are many plants which

attracts predators to the garden,

some to try include: Flowering

parsnips, fennel, carraway, hyssop,

lemon balm and dill. Let all of these

plants flower.

Girls’ High School

Te Kura o Hine Waiora

At Christchurch Girls’ High School / Te

Kura o Hine Waiora we believe each girl

should be encouraged and guided to be all

she can become. We want her to be aware

of the myriad of possibilities that exist so

that she can become confident, resilient

and skilled; a young woman who stands

proud and tall, in any context, who not

only has a voice but something to say and

who is able, to use the business metaphor,

take a seat at any table she chooses.

We believe we must educate, nurture

and inspire young women. We wish to

challenge our students to be discerning

critical and creative thinkers, who are

comfortable with the concepts of hard

work and service. By providing a wide

range of opportunities, both inside and

National Secondary Schools

Culinary Challenge, Gold Medal

Young Enterprise Scheme,

outside the classroom, we want our

students to mature as individuals.

The Christchurch Girls’ High School

/ Te Kura o Hine Waiora vision ensures

our young women appreciate the rich

heritage of tradition, recognise the

necessity of innovation and understand

that excellence should be a part of all that

they do. Young women who realise that

“excellence is not an act but a habit.”

We want a Christchurch Girls’ High

graduate to remain open to possibility

and seize opportunity so that her future is

not predetermined by others. Instead, we

want her to have the skills, qualifications

and experiences that allow her the

freedom to create her own destiny.

Burnside High School

Open Evening 2017

Burnside High School is pleased to

invite members of the community to

our Open Evening on Tuesday 16 May.

We are well aware of the significance

parents place on the transition from

Primary or Intermediate to Secondary

School and how important it is to

make the right decision about this

transition.

Burnside High School is a large

secondary school, a centre for academic

excellence, with an outstanding record

of academic, cultural and sporting

success. The size of the school ensures

that there is an exceptionally wide

range of subjects and extra-curricular

opportunities available. This provides

flexibility for students to follow a

pathway suited to their ability, interests

and skills.

The unique structure of the school

retains all the benefits of a large school

but with students in Divisions of

approximately 700. This ensures that

students are known on an individual

basis and are supported and mentored

by senior students, Form Teachers,

Deans and Guidance Counsellors.

This strong pastoral and guidance

focus helps Burnside High School

students strive to excel and develop

into well rounded New Zealanders.

Students achieve well above the level

The Star

of similar schools in the attainment of

NCEA certificates and endorsements

and perform to the highest level in a

range of local, regional and national

academic, cultural and sporting

competitions. The school is renowned

for its Specialist Music Programme, the

only such programme in the country.

The Open Evening offers Year 8

students and their families a chance

to view the facilities and to experience

some of the opportunities Burnside

High School is proud to offer its

students.

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

The ultimate campus for

Avonside and Shirley

A large Performing Arts Centre, three full-sized

Gyms (complete with climbing wall) and four

Sportsfields are among the key facilities that will be

enjoyed by Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley

Boys’ High School in the future.

The two schools are being rebuilt alongside

one another and next to the new QEII Sport and

Recreation Centre. They will open in time for Term

Two of 2019 so students who enrol to study at the

schools next year, will only spend just over a year on

the schools’ existing sites.

The new campus’ design was created by New

Zealand’s ASC Architects – part of the ShapED

consortium that is building and will also maintain

the new schools.

Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume says being

able to start from scratch has enabled ASC to come

up with the ‘ultimate campus’.

“We are delighted. The new campus will feature

better facilities than either of our schools have ever

had in the past.”

Shirley Boys’ Headmaster John Laurenson agrees,

describing the design as modern and sympathetic

to the surrounding area.

The two schools will be set back from Travis

Road with numerous trees and landscaped areas. It

will be a very green campus,” says John Laurenson.

As well as the major facilities, each school will

have a long list of specialist learning facilities.

Highlights include an Electronics Lab, a 2D and

3D Printing Room, six Science Labs and an Indoor

Fitness Centre (complete with exercise equipment

including rowing machines, stationery bikes and

treadmills).

Sue Hume says the design enables the schools to

offer students completely new experiences.

The facilities are just so much better than what

we have now. For example, in each school’s Social

Sciences and Media there is a large Editing Suite,

Presentation Space, two Recording Studios and a

Media Studio. It’s a big step up,” says Sue Hume.

John Laurenson says the schools will continue to

deliver quality single sex education.

“Students will spend most of their day in a singlesex

environment – that is really important to us.

Single sex education benefits both boys and girls.

Our students will also benefit, both educationally

and socially, from being able to learn alongside and

mix with students from the partner school. It is a

fantastic opportunity.”

Two of the gyms on the campus will feature a climbing wall and be able

to be linked for major events. The schools will also share a third gym

The schools will have numerous outdoor areas that will be

landscaped to enable students and teachers to work outside.

The front of the campus will face Travis Road but be set behind a large landcaped courtyard and plantings.

Formation is at the heart of the education

Middleton Grange School provides – a

whole of life formation. We see learning

as holistic; it aims to instruct the mind,

shape the heart and equip the hand. The

root of formation is faith and so Middleton

Grange not only provides a first rate general

education but also biblically based teaching

in the Christian faith.

Formation of the mind is not primarily

intellectual contemplation or conceptual

mastery but a learning that nurtures

wisdom and discernment. It is a learning

that challenges the mind to think, discern

and critique the ideas and theories pupils

are exposed to from a Christian perspective.

Middleton Grange’s learning culture allows

the formation of the heart so that it shapes

Christian Integrated

Schools

Working together for the good of

students and families has been a successful

recipe for Christian Integrated Schools in

Christchurch.

The Christian School Network has been

in existence for over ten years. Aidanfield

Christian School, Emmanuel Christian

School, Hillview Christian School and

Middleton Grange School decided in

2005 that there was much to be gained

by working together cooperatively.

They recognised opportunities to share

successful teaching practice, curriculum

development initiatives across a wide

spectrum of school operations as well as

cooperatively strengthening their special

the character of each pupil to develop

habits of righteousness, compassion and

integrity. This formation of the mind and

heart generates responsiveness. We want

our pupils to engage in the society they

live in, to be of benefit and blessing in a

practical way.

For Middleton Grange School, while our

academic results are of the highest level,

what is highly prized, is that our pupils

exercise wisdom, serve the community

and promote the well-being of others. It is

about forming the pupil to be the person

God created them to be.

All of this is summed up in the school

motto: Character, Excellence, Service for

the Glory of God.

Christian Character. They recognised that

their ability to serve students and families

was greatly enhanced by working together

in a close and trusting relationship.

The success of the network has seen other

schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece

Rangiora New Life School became part of

the network. The schools joined together to

support the genesis of Ashburton Christian

School and also culminated in the start up

of a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015.

The schools have developed interlocking

enrolment schools which assists in

providing transparent pathways in

Christian education from new entrant

through to Year 13.

A further strength has been a cooperative

engagement with the Ministry of Education

who have been pivotal in assisting the

networks successful development.

Selwyn House School

A Selwyn House School education is one of

the greatest gifts you can give your daughter.

We focus on putting the foundations in place

to ensure all our girls receive a remarkable

education that will prepare them for the

global society they will live and lead in.

Proudly, authorised to deliver the Primary

Years Programme (PYP), we are committed

to providing a continuum of international

education to our girls. The focus from Early

Childhood to Year 8 is on the total growth

of the developing girl, encompassing

intellectual, social, physical, emotional,

spiritual and cultural needs. The

International Baccalaureate (IB) PYP

is an international, transdisciplinary

programme.

Parents want the best for their

daughters and, together with you, our

teachers work to ensure we inspire all

our girls to love and to be committed

to learning as they develop their unique

way of being ‘remarkable.’ To achieve

this, we actively encourage the girls to

think about what sort of person they

want to be, what life they want to lead

and what they are prepared to stand up

and fight for.

We believe in the strength of tradition,

the promise of the future and the power

of education and inspiration to equip our

girls to face our continually-changing

world with confidence and enthusiasm.

Our girls stand out among their peers.

They are confident, articulate and

determined young women who have the

values, skills, and attributes needed to

not only achieve their goals but to make a

difference in their communities.

Selwyn House School’s nurturing

environment, small class sizes and

comprehensive approach to learning

each year group but provides a smooth

transition to secondary school. For

Mairehau vs Wild

The annual ‘Mairehau vs Wild’ Year 12

Physical Education camp was recently. After

days of torrential rain, the team was blessed

with gorgeous weather, with the sun shining

down on our epic adventures!

Day 1 included raft building, kayaking

and paddle-boarding at Lake Rua. The girls

easily beat the boys in the raft building task,

much to the boys’ dismay! Next stop was

the Birch Hill Cemetery to see a tribute to

the horses who served and died in World

War 1. We were humbled by this impressive

memorial, and its stunning and poignant

location.

Day 2 we scaled Mt Oxford. This lofty

beast took us about 7 hours to climb, but

we were treated to breathtaking panoramic

views.

That evening, we visited the Oxford

Observatory. This was a real highlight. We

got to see Jupiter, its ‘rings’ and four of its

moons. We also got to see our closest star, a

supernova and a ‘black hole’, and we found

out where all our star signs live in the sky.

On Day 3, we mountain-biked from base

to Kowhai Riding School, where we got to

learn to ride and trot horses, before taking

them on a trek. A delicious fish and chip

lunch followed, before making the journey

back.

This was a wonderful trip. We made new

friends, and learned and experienced many

new things.

Mairehau High School prides itself on

all the many amazing opportunities we can

offer our students. Come along to our Open

Evening and find out more!

As

When considering what our young people

need in order to be positive, successful and

contributing citizens the following positive

dispositions, alongside formal qualifications,

are thought to be important: empathy, selfcontrol,

integrity, embracing diversity and

grit.

Hillmorton High School, catering for Years

7 to 13, has a diverse student population in

terms of socio-economic status, ethnicity,

prior learning, ability and disability. We fairly

well represent New Zealand society and as

such, our students study alongside students

from varying backgrounds. Through this

alone they develop empathy, self-control,

and a deep understanding of diversity which

we embrace. Our students develop into

young adults where they are strong in their

own identity; they have integrity.

We know that Hillmorton students take a

broad range of pathways on leaving school

including university and understand the

value of hard work and determination.

We continue to work to understand how to

teach in ways that help to develop “grit” and

resiliency. We know to praise “effort” and I

encourage all parents to do the same.

Working together, our young people are

developing the positive dispositions, skills

and knowledge needed so that they can

Hagley sets you up for life

If you are looking for a high school

where teachers work closely with you

to ensure you get the very best out of

your high school years, then Hagley’s

Junior Graduating College is the right

choice for you.

We are often asked, what makes Hagley different? We

have a culture like no other. No-one wears a uniform

and everyone is on a first name basis, but that is just for

starters. Students come to Hagley because they’re treated

with respect and valued as individuals.

Hagley’s Junior Graduating College has small classes

and we take a personal approach. It is all about what we

can do to help you. Classes are fun, focused and inspire

you to be the very best you can. What does that mean

for you? You feel that your teachers are interested in you

and care about your learning, that you are experiencing

success – and much more.

We love our students aiming high and doing well.

Students graduate into Hagley’s large Senior College

where they succeed academically and in many other ways,

as well as become our school leaders. This is all built on

the great foundations laid in our Junior College.

Hagley’s Junior Graduating College combines the

best of both worlds: freedom to be yourself and enjoy

school in a structured and supportive environment

where achievement is celebrated. Experience the Hagley

difference – it will set you up for life!

Pathways at

Linwood College

In 2017 Linwood College is offering a

range of events for prospective students and

their parents.

Due to a heightened demand, this year

we are introducing the opportunity to meet

individually with our principal, Richard

Edmundson. Available times are noted on

the flyer. Incoming Yr 6 and Yr 8 students

will have a Taster Afternoon and then for the

Open Night each family will have their own

individual guide who is a present Linwood

College student.

Aspiration and success: learning at

Linwood College is founded on personalised

pathways. Learning is personalised and

individual needs are recognised and met.

Each individual receives the content and

style of education that is appropriate for

their specific stage of learning and social

development.

Our school’s Yr 7-13 curriculum creates

aspiration and community. There is

educational and social continuity, yet with

the “rites of passage” that students of all ages

stress are important as they grow and mature.

It brings out the best in our students.

Students know that what they are learning

is based on their own individual pathways.

They increasingly take responsibility for

their own learning, knowing that with

positive actions and effort they will achieve.

Students learn best when who they are

– language, culture, identity – is affirmed.

The personalized pathways model creates

whānau-school partnerships as it recognizes

and nurtures the uniqueness of each one of

our students and their specific capabilities. It

creates multiple opportunities for leadership

so students excel and develop independence.

A new school is coming

Make it yours

FOR

SALE

Popular Colorado

up for a challenge

• By Ross Kiddie

NEW ZEALAND has

become quite the

ute-buying nation.

That doesn’t surprise me,

Kiwis are following trends

out of North America and

Australia.

In the last few years ute

sales here have shot up to

record levels. While it’s

fair to say most buyers

are choosing Ford and its

Ranger, all manufactures

which ply that part of the

market are claiming success.

None more so than

Holden with its Colorado,

it is selling hard on the

heels of Ranger, a new

model was launched last

year and as I reported

in these columns in

November, it is a standout

in terms of refinement and,

of course, practicality.

That evaluation focused

on the mid-spec LTZ; five

days with the range-topping

Z71 has done nothing

to alter my affection for the

popular four-wheel-drive

double cab.

Clearly, the Z71 is aimed

more towards the recreational

buyer, it has decals,

stripes, body kit and a

level of specification which

wouldn’t work for many

industry roles.

However, I found the

deck cover functional and

useful for low loads, I took

a deck full of foliage to the

green recycling centre, to

be able to pack it down

and hold it secure with the

fibreglass cover was simply

brilliant. I also used that

area to transport the cricket

gear I use as year 4 coach,

to have it locked secure

when I was away from the

vehicle was also another

bonus.

These tasks were no

match for the Colorado’s

1000kg load capacity, but

they did serve to prove how

adaptable the modern ute

has become, and if you add

in a 3500kg tow rating the

Colorado is right up there

in terms of load carrying

performance.

At the other end sits

a 2.8-litre, four-cylinder

twin-camshaft turbocharged

diesel engine. It is

rated bay Holden at 147kW

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Genuine off-roader.

and with 500Nm of torque

available at just 2000rpm it

is a powerhouse, easily on a

par with all of its competitors.

Drive is harnessed

through a six-speed automatic

transmission. A

manual is available, but

it won’t compete with the

auto in terms of sales figures.

• Price – Holden

Colorado Z71,

$66,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 5361mm;

width, 1872mm;

height, 1800mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,2776cc,

147kW, 500Nm, sixspeed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage –

8.7l/100km

Shifts are smooth and the

gearing is such that it provides

relaxed motoring at

highway speed along with

the ratios needed for slow

speed, off-the-seal travel.

Backing up that theory

is the fitment of a true

low ratio transfer box, it is

manipulated electronically

by a console-mounted dial

switch, at the driver’s command.

It’s fair to say I didn’t

take the Z71 off-road.

When Holden launched

the new series, it included

a traction-challenging offroad

excursion in North

Canterbury. I felt I didn’t

need to replicate that given

all vehicles completed the

undulating and muddy hill

sections without drama.

VERSATILE:

The Z71 has a

high level of

specification.

Instead, I spent most

of my time with the Z71

at highway speed and my

regular commute. In those

conditions it seems more

car-like that ute-like. Sure,

there is a lot of bulk to

manoeuvre in close confine

situations, but it’s no worse

than any other vehicle of its

type. And if you take into

account the number which

are being sold, buyers quite

obviously don’t rate that as

a challenge.

On the open road, the

engine turns over slowly

at 1550rpm at 100km/h

in top gear. At that speed

it returns a 6.2-litre per

100km (46mpg) instantaneous

fuel usage figure,

that accounted for

an 9.4l/100km (30mpg)

average figure during my

time with the ute. That

correlates well with the

8.7l/100km (32mpg) figure

Holden claims for a combined

cycle average.

Road and wind noise are

both kept to a minimum,

and the Colorado, as a

series, imparts a smooth

ride. Of course, it is better

with a bit of weight in the

back, but the reality is the

load bearing suspension is

relatively absorbent and the

cab doesn’t jiggle unnecessarily

on uneven surfaces.

That’s an area where local

research and development

pays dividends. Holden

Australia places a huge

emphasis on developing

vehicles for down under

conditions and it certainly

shows in Colorado. The

ride is acceptable and the

entire in-cabin experience

is comfortable.

I guess, it would need to

be. The Z71 isn’t cheap at

$66,990, but for that money

you do get a lot of kit.

Even though the Z71’s

flashy bits disguise its traditional

ute look, make

no mistake, it is still the

quintessential Colorado

which has carved out a

huge reputation as a tough,

go-anywhere worker.

HOW TO PLAY

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the

same line or row.

Foran to meet Storm coach Craig Bellamy – report

AUSTRALIAN MEDIA are

reporting that Kieran Foran

joining Melbourne is back on

the table with the Warriors star

supposedly seeking an audience

with the Storm’s master coach

Craig Bellamy.

The Sydney Morning Herald

has reported that Foran is

contemplating “the prospect of

starting over in Melbourne.”

The Warriors play the Storm

on Tuesday in Melbourne in the

traditional Anzac round clash

between the two clubs.

Latest Christchurch news at www.

.kiwi

The Sydney Morning Herald

claimed Foran would use the

opportunity to meet Bellamy,

who is seeking a replacement for

departing playmaker Cooper

Cronk who is moving to Sydney

to be closer to fiancee Tara

Rushton.

It reported Bellamy has

identified Foran and St George

Illawarra captain Gareth

Widdop as the best players

available on the open market.

It said Foran would tour the

Storm’s facilities and meet with

coach Bellamy and his key

staffers.

The Kiwi international is

keen for the visit not to disrupt

his game preparations and is

likely to seek the permission

of Warriors officials to do so,”

The Sydney Morning Herald

reported.

“We are yet to rule any

candidate out,” Storm chief

executive Dave Donaghy said.

“We won’t be rushed into

anything, there are a number

of retention and recruitment

Thursday April 20 2017

decisions to be made in the

coming weeks and months.”

Foran is also in Newcastle’s

sights for next year and is

being strongly linked to the

Canterbury Bulldogs.

Reigning premiers Cronulla

may also be in the mix after

losing Jack Bird to the Brisbane

Broncos.

Foran’s preference is to play in

Sydney to be closer to his family

but that doesn’t rule out the

Storm as an option.

CANTY PLAYERS IN NZ

RUGBY UNDER-20S

Four Canterbury players have

been named in the New Zealand

under-20 squad for this month’s

Oceania rugby tournament

in the Gold Coast. Ere Enari,

(Lincoln University), Josh

McKay (Lincoln University),

Tom Christie (Christchurch),

Braydon Ennor (University) and

Harrison Allan (Sydenham)

will travel to Australia for the

tournament, which begins

on April 28. Recent Tasman

acquisition and former

Christchurch Boys’ High School

player Will Jordan has also been

selected. New Zealand will play

Fiji, Samoa and Australia.

BOWLS CHAMPIONS

The Bowls Canterbury

Champion of Champions titles

will be decided at the Woolston

Park club this weekend. Local

club champions in singles, pairs,

triples and fours have played

elimination matches against

other club champions over the

last month. This weekend’s

tournament will see the semifinals

and finals in the four

disciplines across both men’s

and women’s competitions on

Saturday and Sunday.

Sticking it to the Aussies in 8-ball

SIX CANTABRIANS will

take on the world’s best in

Australasia’s richest 8-ball

tournament this weekend.

The Christchurch contingent

of Danny Bowen, Healey

White, Jun Carreon, Steve

Denton, Jordan Maehe and

Kyri Michaelides departed for

Australia yesterday to compete

at the Big Guns tournament in

Bundoora, Melbourne.

They will be joined by eight

other New Zealand players,

more than 100 of Australia’s best

players, and a contingent from

the United Kingdom, including

three-time world champion

Mick Hill.

For most of the Christchurch

players, this will be their first

international tournament

experience.

“It’s going to be great to just

see the next level and where you

can bring your game to,” said

Bowen.

The tournament has more

than 128 players and a total

prize pool of more than

AUS$70,000, with the winner

taking home AUS$12,000.

Christchurch’s top player

Steve Denton has watched

internet for the last two years,

but decided now was the time to

send a Kiwi contingent across

the ditch.

After getting in touch with

the organiser in Sydney, he was

promised eight spots for New

Zealand players in this year’s

tournament. That number has

now been extended to 14.

“I think there are many

players here in New Zealand

that are going on this trip who,

on their day, are capable of

beating anyone,” said Denton.

The tournament is an

individual competition.

However, the New Zealand

contingent is going over with

a team mentality. They will all

play in the same uniform and

will even be sharing the same

accommodation.

Although you can be assured

the team theory will go out the

door if two of the Kiwis draw

each other.

A number of the competitors

will also play in a single day

tournament in Bundoora on

Anzac Day.

New Zealand has also been

invited to send a team to

compete in a tri-series against

England and Australia in

Canberra in November.

Home

& Property

Dressing your

property up for sale

Your house is on the market and you hope to get a good price. While

market performance will largely influence this, presenting your home

at its best will help.

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a

property from the street to the moment

they walk through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed.

Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass

seed over bald patches and fertilise the

lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess

or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby

items or fitness equipment and if too

many photos on the wall pack these

away so the home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A

piece of furniture might be painted up

or an old leather bound book popped

on the coffee table. Shelves will also add

depth to a narrow space while mirrors

may give the illusion of a larger space. In

entryways, add an easy chair, small table,

bookcase or large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved

ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might

be converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers

can see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy

for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting walls,

replacing worn carpet, or modernising

the kitchen, bathroom and toilet;

rooms that should sparkle. Replace

tired cabinetry, or the benches and

cupboard/drawer fronts then update old

toilets, showers or kitchen appliances.

Modernising these rooms can lift the

final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint

colours throughout for balance and

seamlessness, making the house appear

more spacious. An effect that is increased

when walls and curtains share the same

or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along

with cushions or a stuffed toy in a

children’s room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns

or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller

rooms whereas larger patterns make

spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes

are past their best, replace these even if it

is only with neutral cotton curtains. The

effect will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add

value for some buyers though not

universally, however earthy natural

colours and features are popular.

Consider who your target buyers are

likely to be and what will appeal to them.
