THE SOUNDS of mambo,

heard coming from the Christ’s

was one of the most satisfying

“The growth and development

of the characters and performances

was incredibly rewarding

to see. The work of Rangi

and passion; her commitment to

the orchestra and the cast – she

Call to

improve

cycle

safety on

Memorial

Avenue

• By Sophie Cornish

A CALL has been made to

improve cycle safety on Memorial

Ave including extending cycle

lanes and changes to parking

management.

In a city council Long Term

Plan 2018-2028 submission last

week, the Commodore Hotel

expressed its interest in supporting

an increase in cyclists using

Memorial Ave, however, it said

cyclists often have to compete

with parked cars for space in the

corridor.

“This pushes cyclists out into

the traffic lane encroaching into

motorist’s space and creates an

unsafe environment for all,”

said the submission, presented

by general manager Michael

Patterson.

Currently on-street parking on

Memorial Ave is not subject to

time restrictions or parking fees.

The hotel is requesting parking

restrictions be applied to reduce

all-day parking near the airport

and that ideas around parking

clearways during peak hours and

shared paths be considered.

from the reporter’s desk

CYCLING HAS been a hot topic in the city council’s Long Term

Plan submissions 2018-2028.

The Memorial Ave corridor is a busy one and there has been

calls to make it safer for cyclists (page 1).

The Commodore Hotel is calling for the city council to amend

the current parking along the avenue to ensure cyclists have

enough space to ride safely. 26th August 2018

This might see time restrictions on parking, meaning those

who don’t want to pay for long-term 10am parking – at 3pm the airport

might have to find somewhere else to park their cars.

It expressed its interest in getting tourists using e-bikes and using

the corridor as a way to connect the area to the central city.

With the LTP submissions and hearings now complete, we

will have to wait and see whether the city council believes it is a

priority.

Condition of Belfast reserve “critical”

Stormwater,

• By Sophie Cornish

ONE OF Christchurch’s “best

by untreated stormwater from

Belfast.

The Otukaikino Reserve’s

even dead eels

them, which

Mr Brosnahan is calling

for the Styx Storm Water

city is currently being restored

following damage as a result of

the earthquakes. The restoration

work has been done by a combination

of private enterprise

– Lamb & Hayward – DOC,

Environment Canterbury and

community groups.

For every funeral arranged

by Lamb & Hayward, a native

plant is established in the reserve

which is a place of commemoration

for family and friends.

The management plan would

see stormwater treated at a facility

prior to entering the reserve,

which is one of the few remaining

wetlands in Christchurch.

Mr Brosnahan said not only

is the reserve not a burden on

Christchurch ratepayers due to

being privately funded, but it

also has “significant cultural and

ecological values.”

“With the completion of

Christchurch Northern Corridor

in 2021, this will place the

reserve as a significant visual

feature at the northern entrance

to Christchurch.”

NZTA predicts 66,000 vehicle

movements per day through this

area by 2024.

In Brief

SHIRLEY FACILITY SURVEY

More than 40 responses have

been received by city council staff

after an engagement survey over

a community facility at 10 Shirley

Rd. The survey asked those living

in the area what type of facility

and activities they would like to

see at the old Shirley Community

Centre site. The city council

and Papanui-Innes Community

Board will now wait until the

conclusion of the Long Term

Plan process to see if funding

is granted for a few facility. If

funding is approved, a workshop

will be held with the community

board and an engagement and

communications plan will be

developed.

GRAMPIAN ST TREES

The city council will remove

two trees at the site of the water

supply station on Grampian

St, Casebrook. The work will

be carried out as part of the

construction of a new water

supply well within the pump

station site. The trees were

inspected by an arborist and

found to be in poor condition.

A white peppermint gum has

structural defects and a silver

birch is in poor condition due to

excessive decay. Other smaller

trees and shrubs may require

removal for the installation of a

new boundary fence.

through Z Energy’s Good

In The Hood campaign

THIS YEAR Bishopdale

Community Trust will receive

a proportion of the $4000 given

away by Z Bishopdale service

station as part of its Good In

The Hood campaign.

How much we receive depends

on customers’ votes at the

gas station. We’re asking every

customer to consider voting for

us, and here’s why.

Our trust was formed in 1999

and has been working to create

a connected, inclusive and

resilient Bishopdale ever since.

We run Sundbye Community

House at 100 Farrington Ave

where we provide a wide variety

of interesting, free or low cost

activities to people in the wider

Bishopdale area.

We like to think we have

something for everyone but are

always open to suggestions of

new activities.

Currently you can enjoy

scrabble, greeting card making,

craft, 500 cards, two walking

groups and yoga in addition to

Monday coffee mornings and

Thursday community lunches.

We hate to think that anyone

in Bishopdale feels isolated,

alone or unappreciated so if you

want to meet people, try a new

activity, volunteer, or are just

new to the area we would love

you to drop in any time Monday

to Thursday 10am-3pm.

We work hard to ensure

that Sundbye House is a very

welcoming place and it’s often

described by our community

members as “a home away from

home.”

The trust is very proud to be

part of community life in Bishopdale

Call to make Memorial Ave safer

•From page 1

“The hotel has an interest in

safer cycle access for it’s employees,

tourist opportunities with

e-bikes, families that regularly

cycle along this route and as a organisation

with a strong desire to

see more people safely cycling on

a comprehensive cycle network in

Christchurch,” said the submission.

The draft LTP currently

proposes a $206m investment

in the Major Cycleways Routes,

however, none of these routes

provide a direct link between the

Christchurch International Airport

and the central city, along

Memorial Ave.

Mr Patterson said along with

key attractors at each end of the

route (the airport and central

city), there are many institutions

that would benefit from improved

cycle provisions including Burnside

Park, Burnside High School,

Christ The King Catholic School,

Burnside Primary School, as well

as thousands of residents.

It acknowledged there are

sections where parking removal

would conflict with other community

facilities, such as sports

facilities at Burnside Park.

In this location, a shared path

facility on the footpath could be

considered.

there is by driving your car essentially,”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Feedback favours

Harewood,

Yaldhurst plan

• By Sophie Cornish

SUBMISSIONS made to the city

council on lowering speed limits

in Harewood and Yaldhurst

show most people support the

planned changes.

The city council received 144

submissions and said no changes

have been made to

the proposal as a

result of consultation.

Under the

plan, parts of

Sawyers Arms,

Julie

Greenwood

Waimakariri,

Harewood,

Styx Mill and

Gardiners Rds

could all become 60km/h while

parts of Highstead, Claridges,

Hussey and Harewood Rd could

be reduced to 50km/h from

80km/h.

The city council will now

make recommendations to the

Fendalton-Harewood-Waimairi

Community Board, which will

implement any changes.

Harewood School principal

Julie Greenwood said she is

“very happy” the city council has

indicated it supports lowering

the speed limit outside of the

school to 60km/h.

Previously, Ms Greenwood

encouraged people in the community

to submit, and is pleased

the feedback has been positive.

“There was a lot of people that

I didn’t know who submitted. It

wasn’t just school families that

were putting in submissions and

making comments that there is

a school, a playcentre and two

churches nearby,” she said.

For the Harewood area,

218 submitters supported the

planned changes, 38 didn’t and

32 did not indicate.

Hussey Rd received 94 submissions

in support of changes to

the speed limit, 16 did not support

it and 34 did not indicate.

For the Yaldhurst area, 85

people were in support, eight did

not and 51 did not indicate.

said the lower speed

limits would aim to address the

changing nature of post-quake,

The changes seek to mitigate

the effects of increased traffic

flows along previously rural

roads and reduce the risk and

severity of accidents to residents

and users of these roads.

Ms Greenwood said she plans

to speak at the next community

board meeting to discuss the

possibility of the speed limit

being dropped even lower to

50km/h.

“Anything that we can do

to enhance the safety of our

students is a priority,” she said.

Orana Wildlife Park has asked

the city council to increase its

operational fund to $500,000

Goals for tree-planting group

TREES FOR Canterbury is on

track to plant one million native

trees and has set itself a new

target of planting a million more.

The group regularly works in

partnership with the city council,

donating plants for community

planting days such as the one

held earlier this month at Styx

Mill Conservation Reserve,

where close to 2000 native plants

were planted.

The not-for-profit nursery has

been running since the 1990s and

later this year hopes to chalk up

a major milestone, achieving the

planting of one million trees at

sites around the city.

A celebration of the milestone

will be held at Travis Wetland

Reserve in September.

Trees for Canterbury manager

Steve Bush, has been in the role

since 1992 and is proud of what

the organisation has achieved.

“It is a true social enterprise in

that 100 per cent of our income

goes into the running of the

nursery and carrying out our

aims. It’s a real buzz to see the

trees we’ve planted around the

city and the region and know that

we’ve helped create that legacy.

You can go back years later and

see a huge change, so it’s really

fantastic.”

“We show up with lots of plants

and encourage lots of people to

All of the plant seedlings and

trees that the nursery donates are

Students combine for exhibition

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN ARTWORK exhibition

capturing the struggles the city’s

youth faces today is on display

in the central city.

Students from five of the

city’s alternative education programmes

have collaborated to

present mixed media art exhibition

A Chance To Be Heard.

Headed by former Survivor

New Zealand and Te Kaupapa

Whakaora manager Salatielu

Tiatia, A Chance To Be Heard

aims to fight the ongoing stigma

against alternative education.

He said a mixture of work

from carving, painting to kapa

haka and rap will be on display

as part of Youth Week, “communicating

everything under the

sun.”

“Art has no boundaries, that

is the thing we want to communicate.”

o Aranui, Linwood’s

Kimihia Adventure Programme,

Hornby’s Tumanako Alternative

Education and Sydenham’s 180

have been working together for

several years.

Mr Tiatia said the ongoing

stigma against alternative education

is “frustrating.”

“The big monster called

mainstream education doesn’t

fit for all young people in

Aotearoa.

“That’s why the poor kids rock

up to the space and all of a sudden

it is stigmatised . . . unfortunately

the more it is spoken of

and the more it is heard, young

people just end up believing it,”

he said.

But Mr Tiatia said the reality

is if students come to one of

the providers they will “feel the

love” and a “sense of whanau.”

He said alternative education

students have often faced issues

including anxiety, home issues

or gaps in their learning which

will be conveyed in their art

“We take every young person

who comes through the door

with all the stuff they bring and

we carry them in order to educate

them,” Mr Tiatia said.

The biggest lesson Mr Tiatia

learnt during his time on Survivor,

which he takes to alternative

education, is “life is precious and

life can’t be taken for granted.”

“That struggle I had for two

whole months, imagine what

these young people go through”.

her singing career, which set her

on a course to be recognised as

international opera singer.

The club helped organised the

concert which raised the funds,

which were then administered

by the Canterbury

Medical Research Foundation.

During her trip Mrs

O’Donoghue visited

both Copenhagen

and Kolding in

Denmark, where

fathers are paid

to take time off

work to support

their infant

babies.

In England,

Mrs

O’Donoghue

visited Plymouth, where the

intensive care neo-natal unit

has 18 beds, compared to 11 in

Christchurch.

The practice there is not to

separate mothers and children.

In all specialist units, both

overseas and within New Zealand,

the practice has moved

from infant babies being located

behind glass where mothers had

limited direct involvement with

their babies, to encouragement

for mothers and families to be

involved in all aspects of the stay.

Fendalton centre lands

starting role with Rams

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

MAX DARLING is the epitome

of what the Canterbury Rams

are in 2018.

Young, hungry and eager to

prove themselves.

The former Christ’s College

pupil, who is based in Fendalton,

is still coming to terms with

his starting

role for the

franchise.

The Rams

had two wins

over the weekend

against

the Nelson

Giants, 104-

Mark Dickel

90, and Super

City Rangers,

98-83, putting

them at the top of the table with

four wins and one loss

“It was quite a shock to find

out that I’d have this role,” Darling

said.

“I was expecting 10-15min a

game but this has been something

new.”

The talented 18-year-old transferred

from Nelson College to

Christ’s for his final year of

secondary school in

2017.

He praised Rams coach

Mark Dickel as being the

main reason for the

move.

“He’s had a big

impact on me and

still does obviously.”

Darling’s role

as a 192cm

forward is to

rebound and

protect the

basket.

That’s no

small task

considering

the vast experience

other

teams

have

with

former Tall

Blacks’ Alex Pledger

and Dillon Boucher

just two names

matched-up against

Darling.

“Going up against

Alex Pledger like I

did last week made

me nervous when I

thought about it, but once you

get into the game, you’re often

BIG MAN: Canterbury

Rams teenager Max

Darling is proving to

be a sensation for the

youthful team.

too focussed to think

about it,” Darling

said. The Rams

are in the hunt for

the top four and

Darling says that is

the goal.

“We are a young

team but we all

get on great,” he

said.

“To make the

play-offs would

be a great effort.”

Darling is

eager to test his

talents offshore

and said there

was interest in him

from colleges in the

United States which

are looking to get

him to commit to a

scholarship, although

nothing has been

confirmed.

The Rams return

home to Cowles

Stadium to play the

Taranaki Mountain Airs on

Saturday.

PAPANUI softballer Jackson

Watt has had a breakthrough

year.

The 20-year-old former

Christchurch Boys’ High pupil

has plenty to celebrate having

been selected to make his Black

Sox debut later this year and

being named Canterbury men’s

softball player of the year.

Watt has been in the sport

since he started playing teeball at

the age of four, and has played all

of his games for Papanui.

The right-fielder, who bats

clean-up, has been at the top of

the home run and runs batted

in statistics but chose to deflect

praise onto his teammates.

“Hitting home runs is always

great but you want to be productive

at the plate and it’s a credit

to the guys in front of me in the

line up for getting on base and,

fortunately, I’ve had a few good

swings and been able to score

them,” he said.

Watt also pitches occasionally

for his club team and is motivated

to ensure he gives back to

a sport which has given him so

much.

“I’ve been part of a great club

and Canterbury Softball has

invested a lot in me, so I want to

make sure I make the most of

every opportunity.”

Watt, who also plays premier

softball with his brother Nathan,

says to be selected for the Black

Sox is a real thrill.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Up-and-coming Papanui

slugger makes Black Sox

IMPACT: Jackson Watt will

make his Black Sox debut

later this year.

“To be part of a team which

has such a big legacy and to play

with some of the experienced

legends.”

The Black Sox, currently

ranked No 1 in the world, will

play Japan (2), Argentina (3),

United States (6), Czech Republic

(7), Denmark (11) and Botswana

(12) in the five-day Intercontinental

Cup series in Prague from

August 28 to September 1.

West End theatre

company stops off

at St Margaret’s

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

NOR’WEST NEWS

AN international performance

company which has featured

on Broadway and the West End

has visited St Margaret’s College

to run a workshop with

students.

The Stomp company has

performed globally for the past

26 years, using eight performers

and an array of ordinary, every

day objects, such as lighters, bin

lids and even kitchen sinks, to

create music.

As part of a middle school

music unit, year 8 students at St

Margaret’s have been learning

about percussion instruments

using recycled objects.

A cast from Stomp ran a

workshop with the students as

well as performing a snippet

of their act for years 4-10

students.

The group performed seven

shows at Issac Theatre Royal last

week.

Said performing arts

teacher Rachel Wilford: “Their

energy and enthusiasm was

catching and the girls enjoyed

their visit, particularly the

hands-on workshop where the

girls were able to improvise

rhythms and work with their

props such as brooms and

sticks.”

It is the second time the Stomp

company has performed in New

Zealand, following a sell-out visit

in 2013.

ON STAGE: (Left) – St Margaret’s

College year 8 students Lauren

Warne, Cass Causer, Isabella

Shirley students take in the old world

SCHOOLS

LEARNING HOLIDAY:

Students from Shirley

Boys’ High School and Villa

Maria College visiting the

Colesseum in Rome.

STUDENTS FROM Shirley Boys’

High School have just come back

from a European adventure over

the holidays.

They travelled to Greece and

Italy with students from Villa

Maria College as part of their

classics tour.

The tour began in Athens,

Greece, and went to classical

sites including the buildings on

the Acropolis, the Temple of

Hephaestus, and the old Greek

Agora.

“The traditional Greek dancing

night was very entertaining,

as was witnessing the students

haggling in the Plaka market

area. From Athens we went south

to the Peloponnese, and visited

the towns of Corinth, Nafplio,

Sparta, Mystras and Olympia,”

Villa Maria teacher in charge of

classical studies, Simone Bailey,

said.

From Greece, the group travelled

to Italy, basing themselves

in Sorrento.

The students, along with

the parents and teachers

accompanying the group, visited

the preserved city of Pompeii, a

UNESCO world heritage site, to

experience how the Romans lived

during the first century.

In Rome, the group visited

many different classical sites,

including the Colosseum, Roman

Forum, Ara Pacis Augustae,

Trajan’s Column, and the

Pantheon.

“A visit to the Vatican

museums, the Sistine Chapel and

St Peter’s Basilica was an aweinspiring

time for students,” said

Miss Bailey. A “highlight” of the

trip was being part of the papal

general audience in St Peter’s

Square, she said.

“As a Catholic school, it was

an amazing opportunity for

students to see and listen to

the pope, and to see him on his

famous pope-mobile. He spoke

of peace and unity in the world,

and blessed us and our families,”

Miss Bailey said.

The occasion would be treasured

by the students for a long

time, she said.

Redwood Primary embraces sign language

Every day use earns award

• By Sophie Cornish

REDWOOD PRIMARY School

has won the New Zealand

Sign Language schools’ award

for its efforts to incorporate

the language into its school

curriculum and daily life.

The pupils and teachers use

sign language each day, which is

one of three official New Zealand

languages used at the school.

The others are English and

Maori. The school uses sign

language as a result of the work

of staff members and deaf pupil

Courtney Burcher.

Two staff members travelled

to Parliament to attend the New

Zealand Sign Language ceremony

and recieve the award.

Principal John Stackhouse said

he was very proud. Many of the

pupils who have begun to learn

sign language can now chat with

Courtney and sign to her.

“Courtney and her family have

opened up new learning and

understanding for us as a school.

The work done by those who have

taught Courtney is amazing, but

also the way the rest of the staff,

our pupils and some parents are

picking up sign language – it has

been fantastic.”

Mr Stackhouse said a large

body of reliable research shows

that, if children can learn

other languages, it brings better

outcomes for them in all their

learning.

The school aims to continue

to strengthen its use of sign language

further.

TWO YEAR 7 Cobham

Intermeadiate pupils have

The two girls decided to help

the Salvation Army by collecting

room could collect the most

items.

The winners were given prizes

TWO PUPILS from Waimairi

School got the opportunity

to ride in a 1956 Buick after

winning a raffle at the school’s

fair, which raised $41,000.

As part of the Ministry of

Education’s Christchurch

schools’ rebuild programme,

the school is receiving earthquake

repairs and upgrades.

The money raised from the

school fair will go towards new

landscaping and playgrounds.

“The fair was successful in

creating an opportunity to

bring the community together,

whilst supporting the school

with its upcoming redevelopment,”

said principal Mike

Anderson.

Prizes from the raffles

included a flight in a Garden

City helicopter over the school,

a ride in a police car, a ride to

school in a Blackwell’s Holden

HSV and a ride in the Buick.

The pupils were heavily involved

with the fair by creating

items to sell, running games,

delivering flyers, making signs

and helping on the day.

lineup entertains with a wide cross

section of material. Country, Celtic,

classic Rock, Pop, Rock n Roll, with

a few one hit wonders thrown in for

good measure. Catch them this

Saturday. 7pm start.

And on Friday night there’s Super

Rugby action live with Crusaders v

Hurricanes from 7.35pm.

The Club Bistro has a tasty new

winter menu. With Mains priced

from as little as $14 through to $24,

the selection is affordable and

excellent value. The Bistro is open

Thursday, Friday and Saturday from

5pm to 8pm.

There’s also plenty of easy access,
