2 [Edition datE] SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday July 18 2017 37 Advertorial State of the environment What are the environmental realities we need to face up to? Can we protect and conserve the environment while still remaining heavily dependent on pastoral production? Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister, Sir Peter Gluckman, will talk about the trade-offs we make and how we can manage them,when he gives this year’s Lincoln University State of the Nation’s Environment Address. Inadequate planning around farming intensification and invasive pests and disease incursions threaten the primary sector, as well as our treasured native species and natural ecosystems. Policy decisions need to be made and we have to decide, as a society, what is important to us in the future. Will new life science technologies provide a circuit breaker on the destruction of our environment, or will society remain highly precautionary. Several important policy-relevant papers and goal statements are emerging. They point to the need for strategic research and innovative thinking to address the issues we face now, and this will become even more critical in the future. Come along and hear a renowned scientist address the issues affecting New Zealand today, and in the future. Sir Peter Gluckman addresses environmental realities at Lincoln University’s State of the Nation’s Environment Address on Wednesday 20th July. CONTINUING EDUCATION Christchurch School of Music The Christchurch School of Music is a family-oriented community aimed at providing quality music education in and around Christchurch. CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong focus on community. On a Saturday morning the whole family can find something to suit. Preschool and junior school children can start their musical journey by joining in our experiential “Take Off with Music” while older children and adults may opt for group or individual lessons on a specific instrument (including voice). Those who already play are welcome to join in one of the great ensembles which all take part in regular concerts including Saturday soirees and the popular annual Showcase Concert. Solo Recitals where individuals can perform are held regularly. CSM also provides a comprehensive music education to participating primary schools via its Outreach programmes offering Piano Raewyn Clegg Registered Teacher of Piano and Theory of Music. 29 Lancewood Drive Halswell Ph 322-9377 tuition in band, strings, recorder, ukulele and classroom music in a wide range of Christchurch schools. Age is no limit - our Late Starters programme provides the opportunity for adults approaching retirement with more time on their hands to learn an instrument and join an ensemble with other like-minded adults. If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also offers a range of weekday opportunities for learning and playing music and, if affordability is an issue, CSM may be able to offer a discount through funding provided by the Rata Foundation. Term 3 starts on Saturday 29 July and we can take new enrolments in most classes and ensembles.
