SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday September 19 2017 7 News Students win beard battle •From page 1 Board of trustees chairman Adrian Paterson said the board had not yet finalised the conditions around the trial, and that was set to happen at the next board meeting. Mr Paterson said the trial would run until the end of next year, when the board would evaluate it again. “We will look at how many students take it on board, and whether any issues crop up. The question is will it affect their learning? And obviously, we thought it shouldn’t, but we may come across issues.” Lincoln High School principal Kathy Paterson said the survey had shown opinions on facial hair were divided. She would not release the survey results, which she said were still being worked on. “I would prefer to keep the status quo, but that’s my personal view. We’ve got to be willing to listen to the voice of students and parents, and that’s what we’re doing,” she said. Ellesmere College and Darfield High School still have a clean shaven-only rule, while Rolleston College is yet to establish any rules. Rolleston College principal Steve Saville said the school had not yet had to make a rule about shaving, as it only accepted younger students when it opened this year. “They’re only year 9s, so they’d be doing well to grow a beard,” he said. The school would look at bringing in a policy once the students were older, he said. Darfield High School principal James Morris said there had been no requests he was aware of for a change in the policy. “However, if the students brought it up and had a good argument, then the board would consider it,” he said. Ellesmere College principal Gavin Kidd said facial hair had not been discussed as an issue in the school’s regular uniform reviews. “It hasn’t been an issue with the college. If there was an increase in demand or requesting of a review, we would be happy to do that,” he said. Secondary Principals’ Association chairman Phil Holstein, who is principal of Burnside High School, said he expected more Canterbury schools would have their policies questioned because of the trial at Lincoln. “There has mostly been consistency with uniforms, but once you start varying from it, more schools start to follow,” he said. A 16-year-old Hornby High School student was suspended two years ago for refusing to shave. He chose to leave the school and enrol in correspondence school after the dispute. • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding ANOTHER LIQUOR outlet is making a bid to set up in Lincoln. An application has been submitted by SJTP Ltd for an off-licence bottle store known as Liquorland Lincoln to be opened on Vernon Drive, near the corner of Gerald St. Liquorland wants to operate from 9am-9m Monday to Sunday. It is the second liquor store application in Lincoln within a month. Lincoln Bottle Shop wants to open in Gerald St, about 100m from the existing off licence, Super Liquor. It has received 100 objections. Super Liquor owner Gulshan Gulati said the district council should have rules put in place on how many liquor stores are allowed per population. Mr Gulati said Lincoln is not big enough for more than one bottle store and he already struggles when the university students are not in town for about four months a year. The population of Lincoln currently sits at nearly 7000 and is expected to project to about 9442 by 2025. District council’s environmental services manager Tim Harris said the District Plan Review will look at issues such as how many liquor stores there are per population. Local News Now Liquorland wants to set up in Lincoln Fire rages, homes at risk “A future review of the LAP might also consider the number or density of licensed premises in a particular area,” he said. Lincoln University is aware of the application and considering its response. A spokesman said while it did not make an objection against the Lincoln Bottle Shop it has concerns about the growing number of liquor outlets in the town. Lincoln High School principal Kathy Paterson said the school will lodge an objection against the Vernon Drive liquor store. “As a board we are saying we don’t want these things to happen. Lincoln has got enough liquor outlets now as a small town,” she said. Lincoln High previously objected to the Lincoln Bottle Store application on Gerald St. SJTP Ltd director Sacha Fougere would not comment on the application because it was not Liquorland policy to comment on any applications whilst in process.
