LINDA CHEN has a new

outlook on life after giving birth

to her first child, Sebastian.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

member and her husband Robin

welcomed the baby boy on April

10 in what she described a

“precious experience.”

“Having a child has

not only been a precious

experience for me, as

a woman, but it has

also changed the

way I see the world.

I now see the world

as a mother – the

agendas and issues

in our ward have

become a lot more

personal now.”

Sebastian is also

the first grandchild

of both sides of the

family, “so he is

getting a lot of love

and attention,” said

Mrs Chen.

The couple first

met while at primary school at

the former Kendal School in

Harewood.

pressure

makes

ECan

rethink

bus cuts

• By Julia Evans and Sophie

Cornish

“OVERWHELMING”

opposition has caused

Environment Canterbury to

re-think its proposed cuts to bus

routes in the city.

ECan staff prepared an “alternative

option” to the proposal

in its draft Long Term Plan,

that would axe the six lowest

performing bus routes, affecting

110,000 passenger trips.

The new proposal will save

the 107 Styx Mill to Northlands

while the 108 Casebrook to

Northlands will be absorbed

into an extended version of the

28 Papanui to Lyttelton service.

Papanui Ward city councillor

Mike Davidson urged people to

submit on the plan, saying the

routes were an “essential social

service.”

He said while the new option

is “really good news” for residents

in his ward, “other areas

haven’t been as fortunate, which

is a shame.”

THAT’S A Martin Hunter special on the

front page today.

What I mean is the photo of community

board member Linda Chen and her baby.

It was taken by Hunter, still one of the

best photographers in the country in my

humble view, and it certainly captures the moment! No doubt

it’ll be one for the scrapbook – electronic presumably these days.

And of course congratulations to Linda and her husband

Robin who first met when they were youngsters at primary

school. Small world.

Great news also on the front page today over the planned

axing of bus routes.

Environment Canterbury is having second thoughts about it

now – no doubt because of the public outrage.

Minister urged to fix school zone plan

Jones says

suburbs feel

‘abandoned’

• By Sophie Cornish

A CALL has been made to the

minister of education to ensure

suburbs in the city’s east are not

further tested “to the point of

breaking.”

In a letter from the Papanui-

Innes Community Board to

Education Minister Chris

Hipkins last week, chairwoman

Ali Jones called for him to

reconsider

a proposal

which would

exclude the

suburbs of

Richmond

and Shirley

in the new

enrolment

Ali Jones

zone for

Shirley

Boys and Avonside Girls’ high

schools.

The two schools, which will

relocate to a shared campus

at QE II Park next year, are

required to create a new

enrolment zone.

The board of trustees led

Vanessa van Hoof are upset the draft school zone for the

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

consultation in April based on

a document with a ‘draft zone’

which included the suburbs

of Burwood, Parklands, New

Brighton, South Brighton and

Southshore.

It excludes Richmond, Shirley,

Avonside, Dallington and

Edgeware which are currently

in the zone.

The re-zoning was met with

public outcry from residents

who felt “abandoned” and asked

why suburbs with no historical

connection to the schools

were included, while others

were left out. In the letter, Ms

Jones said some families who

chose to remain in the area at

“considerable hardship”

are no longer assured of

enrolment for their children.

And they are “frustrated

by the lack of consultation,

transparency and commitment

by the MOE.”

“The local communities in

Richmond and Shirley feel

abandoned following their

exclusion from the zones

that will contain the schools

their children have attended

and supported pre and postearthquake.”

“This situation adds to the

stress and upset for families

remaining in an area that was

hard-hit by the earthquakes,”

said the letter.

Residents have gathered

more than 1900 signatures

in an online petition against

the exclusion, as well as

delivering about 3000 leaflets

to surrounding areas, alerting

people to the issue. Signs have

also been put on fences in

the excluded suburbs, saying

‘don’t leave our kids out in the

cold’ and ‘haven’t our kids lost

enough in the quake already?’

The MOE will make the final

decision and deputy secretary

sector enablement and support,

Katrina Casey, said at this stage

no decisions have been made.

“We are in the process of

assessing recommendations

from the two boards, which

includes feedback from the

consultation they undertook

with their communities.”

NEW AED FOR SCHOOL

A donation from the Harewood

School PTA has allowed the

purchase of an automated external

defibrillator. Staff, playcentre

members and parents attended

a training session where they

upskilled their CPR knowledge

and learned how to use the unit.

The AED is located in the sick bay

in the school’s office area and will

be available for public use during

school hours. It has also been added

to the AED locations app.

COFFEE SHOP OPEN

A new Black and White Coffee

Cartel shop, owned by former All

Black Reuben Thorne, was opened

in Papanui yesterday. The store,

located at 7 Winston Ave, had a

hiccup before opening, with a large

banner overlooking Papanui Rd

incorrectly stating it would open a

week earlier than it was supposed

to. “Our sign guys did it on Monday

too early! Hang tight Papanui!” said

a post on the store’s Facebook page.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board will consider converting the

Clips for quake-stressed kids

• By Sophie Cornish

DANCING WITH The Stars

co-host and well-known

comedian Dai Henwood

is about to do his bit for

Canterbury children stressed

by earthquakes, with the help of

the Neighbourhood Trust in St

Albans.

Henwood is recording voiceovers

for six webinars titled

Stress Inside Out which are

based on comparative research

from Canterbury University

associate professor Kathleen

Liberty, with assistance from

Christchurch teachers Liz Mc-

Naughton and Brie Liberty.

It is an animation project

organised by the trust which

focuses on stress and anxiety

in children, as a result of the

earthquakes.

“I am really glad to be

involved in such a positive

project that’s going to be a great

resource for the kids of the

Christchurch earthquakes,”

Henwood said yesterday.

The project will examine biological

issues within children,

brought about by more than

22,000 earthquakes experienced

in Canterbury.

The six 90sec webinars (seminar

conducted over the internet)

Kathleen

Liberty

Ginny

Larsen

will focus on how chronic stress

affects children, the behaviours

as a result and strategies on how

to deal with it.

Wellington scriptwriter Vincent

Konrad and Christchurch

animator Tom Linklater will

use “chatty, everyday language”

and imagery to show how the

RESOURCE: Six webinars voiced by Dai Henwood will

Canterbury earthquakes.

accumulation of stress can lead

to bursting point.

Neighbourhood Trust manager

Ginny Larsen hopes the

webinars will help people understand

that the behaviours are

not the fault of the children or

their parents.

“A lot of parents are taking on

blame . . . a lot of the old strategies

to deal with behaviour don’t work

because the children are not in

control of their actions and in actual

fact it’s a biological response.”

Funding is being provided

from the Papanui-Innes Community

Board as well as the

Ministry of Social Development,

city council and the The Tindall

Foundation.

The webinars will be made

available online through Facebook

and in schools around

November.

Father-of-two Henwood’s

mother, Judge Carolyn Henwood,

created the Henwood Trust,

which focuses on helping at-risk

youth and young offenders.

Henwood is a team captain on

TV show 7Days and is host of

Humour unleashed in bid

to get dog park funding

• By Sophie Cornish

THE FUNDING required to

extend The Groynes dog park

has been compared to “the

equivalent of finding stale

popcorn behind the back of your

sofa and selling it on Trade Me.”

The comment was made by

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board member and

deputy chairman Aaron Campbell

during Long Term Plan

2018-2028 submissions and was

met with laughs from both the

mayor and city councillors.

Titled his “pet project,” Mr

Campbell has taken his bid

to extend the Northwood dog

park, ‘More Park 2 Bark’, one

step further, calling for funding

during an LTP submission he

made himself, separate to the

community board’s.

He launched his crusade to

extend the dog park in January

which would see part of a 31ha

empty lot leftover from the

Western Belfast Bypass added to

the Johns Rd park.

More than 450 people have

signed a petition in support of

the extension.

Ninety-nine per cent of the

infrastructure is already in

place, said Mr Campbell, as suitable

fencing already borders The

Groynes.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said his

submission was “entertaining

and useful.”

His popcorn comment received

laugh from councillors

who called out: “How much?”

Mr Campbell replied: “About

a gate, seriously. There are some

acquisition costs but I can go

into that another time.”

dog park. •From page 1

A service from Prestons to QE

II would be made of a combination

of the 135 Burwood Hospital

and 150 The Palms routes. The

new service would not go to New

Brighton.

The 535 Rapaki route would

still be cut. However, the 28 route

would also extend to service Rapaki

three times in the morning

and evening respectively.

Cr Davidson said while it’s

good that ECan have listened, the

entire bus system is broken and

“needs to be fixed.”

“The services have been reduced

in terms of frequency and

operating hours . . . in an ideal

world, ECan wouldn’t be running

the bus network in the city,

the city council should be. That

would be a great step forward,”

he said.

He would also like to see city

council work better to improve

as well as a transfer from dieselrun

vehicles to electric.

“We need good bus lanes so

buses don’t have to interact with

cars, they need their own bus lane

to work without having to pop in

and out of the car lanes, getting

stuck in traffic.”

“It makes it more attractive, we

don’t want people jumping into

their cars – we want people to

think it’s convenient,” he said.

There were 781 submissions on

the draft LTP, with the majority

of those on public transport options.

Said ECan councillor David

Caygill: “It became very clear

from the submissions that almost

everybody does not want us to

abandon the services.”

If approved, changes would

come into affect in October.

treasurer

Jason

Middlemiss

talks about the

club’s proud

players and the changes

IF YOU drive along Heaton St

in the evenings, you will notice

two things – it’s clogged with

traffic and it’s home to one of

the most beautiful reserves in

Christchurch – Elmwood Park.

In the summer, it’s home to Old

Boys Collegians Cricket Club.

To anyone who knows or loves

cricket, it’s the club of the Hadlee

family, which are as close as you

get to cricketing royalty in New

Zealand.

Other household cricketing

names we are extremely proud to

have had grace our park include

Shane Bond, Brendon McCullum,

our most recent Black Cap,

Todd Astle, and current White

Ferns Katie Martin and Erin

Birmingham.

Aside from the immense pride,

we feel in being associated with

these amazing names, most

people may not know the current

Hadlee Pavilion at Hagley Park

is situated smack bang on our

old club site, which we gave up

willingly to ensure the beautiful

vision that Canterbury Cricket

had for Hagley Oval could be

realised. Some may disagree, but

we think it adds immensely to

the legacy of Hagley Park.

It’s commonly said if you’re

standing still, you’re moving

backwards.

OBC is one of the largest clubs

in the country and arguably the

largest in the South Island, with

more than 500 junior members

and 100 seniors over any given

summer.

Our committee feels a responsibility

to provide the best experience

we can as a community hub,

where children can learn how

to work together for a shared

goal, enjoy success, deal with

failure and, if their stars align,

perhaps be the next McCullum

or Bond.

In the effort to move forward,

we have some ambitious and

exciting projects under way.

We are more than half way into

our $100,000 fundraising effort

to build new, safer, enclosed nets,

and we are in the planning stages

of creating a new pavilion on the

site that espouses the spirit and

history of cricket and of the park.

For a group of volunteers, this

is no small undertaking, but

along with a commitment and

expertise we have the confidence

that we can get it done.

Over the next year or two,

when you’re stuck in traffic down

Heaton St or passing through

on a Saturday, you will slowly

but surely see the hard work and

pride we have in the club coming

to fruition.

going door-to-door selling stuff

is rude and intrusive. If people

want to buy what they are selling

they are perfectly capable of

the morning, and the cyclists

will still use the road and the

footpath anyway.

Anna Henderson – I would

love to see cycle lanes down

Memorial. Would need to be well

thought out and well designed,

though.

Bruce Marshall – $3 a litre

for gas might make this a brilliant

idea.

Ruth Neil – I park outside

Burnside High School most

days for school pick-up and it’s

hard to get a park. Would be

nice if the big trucks that speed

down Memorial Ave do the

school speed limit when it’s in

place; would never let my son

cycle in the area, even if this

got put in place. Very scary out

there.

Graeme Palmer – How

about better funded bus

routes that are public-friendly

instead.

Sarah Spencer Smith –

Tram from city to airport would

be an excellent idea. Then extend

it out to Sumner.

Stephanie Hagerty –

Trevor Taylor – Not needed

cycle to the airport.

James David

Foote – Memorial Ave is long

overdue for cycle lanes.

Sonya O’Connor – No more

cycle lanes.

Allan Taunt – I’ve biked

down there on a dark wet night.

The door zone and close passes

(at a relatively high speed) make

it quite dangerous compared to

other places.

Scotty Ogilvie – It amazes

me that cyclists have managed to

survive until 2018 without cycle

lanes.

Cedric Trounson – There

is very little room to safely

accommodate parked cars,

two lanes, large centre plot and

a 60km/h speed limit. Other

options would be to remove the

lawn section on the footpath,

either move cars onto it or make

it a cycle lane.

Allan Taunt – The fact is

people do have momentary

lapses in judgement from

time to time. Generally they

don’t set out to endanger

others, that is however small

consequence to the victim.

There is also no denying driver

distraction is a big problem these

days.

Maria Sheriff – Wish they’d

put cycle lanes where it’s really

dangerous to cycle, like Lower

Styx Rd, where in parts there

is no road on the outside of the

white line for cyclists to even use.

See cyclists come close to being

wiped out almost on a daily

down that stretch.

Susan Keys – I don’t

know why cycle lanes can’t

be incorporated alongside

footpaths. Safer for all.

SCHOOLS

‘Eugenius’ scores

scholarship at

top US university

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

student Eugene In has been

accepted into the Stanford

University medicine summer

internship in the United

States.

The 17-year-old,

nicknamed ‘Eugenius’,

has been interested in

Stanford University’s

medicine faculty in

California for many

years. “Ever since I used

to watch Grey’s Anatomy

I guess,” she

said.

She will

fly to the US

in July.

“Last year

I was lucky

enough to

be in the

United

States for

the International

Future

Problem

Solving

competition

and got

to see the Stanford campus for

myself. It was inspirational. It’s

not only a very prestigious university,

but it’s well-known for its

holistic approach to innovation

and it prides itself on embracing

diversity. I really like that.”

FUNDRAISER:

Rangi Ruru

students

helped

raise more

than $500

for Eugene

In (above)

to study at

Stanford

University.

Forty-six per cent of students

who attend Stanford are from

outside the US.

Eugene’s classmates have

helped her fundraise for the

internship which comes with a

hefty price tag.

Rangi Ruru community

council head Isabella

Carter pitched the idea

to the council after

hearing about Eugene’s

opportunity on Facebook.

The idea was

to sell gelato

left over after

the students

annual ‘love

week’ in

February.

As the

cost of the

gelato was

already

covered,

any

money

made could

go straight to

Eugene.

“We hashtagged

it

#HelpASisterOut

as

our theme at school this year is

#sisterhood. It was amazing; we

sold out in one lunchtime and

raised $530.”

Eugene is continuing to fundraise

and will attend Stanford

from July 9-20.

A PLAY about twin boys

separated at birth has been

performed by St Andrew’s

College students.

More than 1300 people saw

the school’s senior production

of Blood Brothers, which had a

cast of 33 as well as 10 crew and

10 band members.

Rector Christine Leighton

said the show was met with

“spontaneous standing ovations

WITH THE help of the

governor-general, Christchurch

Girls’ High School officially

opened its new performing arts

centre on Friday.

Dame Patsy Reddy unveiled

the plaque for the centre with

head girl Stephanie Lester and

principal Pauline Duthie.

The school’s previous auditorium

was built in 1986, when

the school moved to its current

Maitai St location from Cranmer

Square. It was damaged beyond

repair in the earthquakes.

The new centre has an auditorium,

drama studios, solo and

ensemble music practice rooms,

a photography studio and classrooms.

It will be used as a classroom

by art, drama and music students.

Mrs Duthie said opening the

centre demonstrated the positive

progress that has been made

since the earthquakes.

at the end, which left no doubt

of the audience appreciation.”

“The powerful story stirred

much emotion,” she said.

“It is with amazement and

incredulity that parents, friends,

and staff have witnessed the

maturity and depth of emotion

and understanding that these

young actors have brought to

their characters on stage.”

Director Laurence Wiseman

said bringing Blood Brothers to

life involved more than 80 individual

stories coming together

to tell one.

“An amazing feat in and of

itself. Cast, crew, production

team, band members, worked

collaboratively towards a common

goal.”

Martlew paddles to silver in World Cup

• By Jacob Page

SCOTT MARTLEW has had

to call on all of his multiple

sporting talents to fulfil his

sporting aspirations.

The talented 25-year-old,

former Shirley Boys’ High School

student has just returned from

the para-canoe World Cup in

Hungary, where he earned a

Scott Martlew

Scholastic titles for

three St Bede’s surfers

ST BEDE’S College struck triple

success at the Canterbury surf

scholastic championships at New

Brighton last week.

St Bede’s student Riley Gibson

claimed the under-18 boys title in

small onshore conditions, with

waves reaching a maximum of

50cm in spite of organisers delaying

the start of the event in hope

of bigger waves.

The event was a trail for the national

scholastic championships

at Gisborne in October.

A training squad will be announced

after Queen’s Birthday

weekend.

Gibson’s fellow schoolmate,

Neko Tohiariki, won the under-16

boys event with two great

waves in the opening minutes,

while Caspar McCormick’s fancy

foot work won him the long

silver in the KL2 200m.

It is just reward for the Parklands

resident who initially

missed out on Rio Paralympic

qualification by 100th of a second.

However, the suspension of

Russian athletes gave him a last

minute paralympic reprieve and

he finished eighth in the A final

of the KL3 200m.

Martlew had a full leg amputation

in 2010 following a muscle

tear after a knock to the leg during

a SBHS rugby curtain-raiser

for a Crusaders match.

The injury became infected

with a flesh-eating bacteria.

Martlew is a former national

champion surf lifesaver and

dragon boat racer. These skills,

along with help from his mates,

helped him adapt to his new

sport.

“I was always big into water

sports, even before my injury,

and while I went through some

dark times, it was my mates who

really encouraged me to get back

out there,”

Martlew said being reclassified

into the KL2 200m

event made a medal a realistic

outcome.

boarding with some nice cross

steps and nose-rides.

Rangiora’s Tegen Bishop won

the girls mixed-age final with

some powerful turns.

Papanui High School’s Jai

Oakley shot out to an early lead

in under-14 boys with two great

waves in the first few minutes to

win comfortably.

“It was pretty surreal to stand

on that podium after a long road

with plenty of ups and downs,”

he said.

Martlew also finished fourth

in the VL3 200m at the World

Cup.

He aims to win gold in both

events at the Tokyo Paralympics

in 2020. But his next focus is the

world championships in Portugal

in August.

“There will be some long training

days on the Avon River and

Kerrs Reach,” he said.

“It often feels like I leave home

in the dark and I return in the

dark after a long winter training.”

Martlew has been a largely

self-funded athlete throughout

his career and he wanted to

thank family and friends who

had supported him throughout

his career so far.

He would also like to thank

FAST PACED

PSYCHOLOGICAL

THRILLER - ‘A PICASSO’

FOLLOWING on from past productions ‘Turn of

the Screw’ and ‘e Woman in Black’, locally

based independent theatre group, NO Productions

eatre Collective presents its latest offering, A

Picasso.

Photo credit: euns Verwoerd

Written by Jeffrey Hatcher, A Picasso is a fastpaced

psychological thriller set in an interrogation

room in Nazi-occuppied Paris.

Directed by Michael Adams (‘Turn of the

Screw’), this intense piece about art, sex, politics

and truth is full of unexpected twists and

surprises.

jo.fuller@starmedia.kiwi

e story line follows a cat-andmouse

game between the great artist

and a captivating female cultural attaché

from Berlin.

“Which of these three paintings are

genuine, Señor?”…

When Miss Fischer (played by

Nataliya Oryshchuk) reveals that the

genuine Picasso pieces are destined not

for an exhibition but a burning of

degenerate art, the artist (played by

David Allen) begins a desperate

negotiation with his Nazi opponent,

who turns out to be his secret admirer.

‘A Picasso’ takes place at the

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetū in the Philip Carter Family

Auditorium on Friday June 8 at 7.30pm

and Saturday June 9 at 2.30pm and

7pm. Tickets $27 (concessions $22).
