vote to

stay with

congregation

at St Paul’s

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE MAJORITY of St Paul’s

Anglican Church parishioners

have voted to remain with the

congregation, in spite of the

church’s vicar resigning.

Reverend Andy Carley

announced he would step

down from his role at the

Papanui church in November

due to the Anglican synod’s

decision to allow same-sex

marriages to be blessed in

Anglican churches.

Church member and

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer

said 75 per cent of

parishioners voted to remain

at the church.

“Only a small minority will

go. Some may even decide to

come back,” he said.

“Andy is unanimously

respected for his position, but

it does not mean we all share

the need to go. He of course

is giving up his career and

income out of conscience, so

that is a huge act of integrity

for him personally. So, there is

no split in that sense amongst

the congregation, just with the

synod decision.”

He said the process to find a

new vicar to replace Rev Carley

would take about a year.

THAT’S ONE happy group of St Andrew’s

swimmers on the front page today.

And they have every right to be. The team

was the most successful co-ed school at the

national secondary school swimming championships,

bringing home a swag of medals

and titles. Para-swimmer George Adam won seven gold medals.

No doubt we’ll be hearing more about these promising young

athletes in the future.

On another successful note, St Andrew’s and Rangi Ruru did

exceptionally well at TheatreFest in Wellington (pages 6-7).

Jackson Page took out the emerging director and best production

category, while Rangi secured the best youth production and

best overall production awards.

‘Dangerous’ crossing concerns

• By Ashleigh Monk

MAIREHAU RESIDENTS have

voiced their concerns over a

“dangerous” pedestrian crossing

which is used daily by Mairehau

Primary School children.

The crossing on Innes Rd

was brought up at a recent

Papanui-Innes Community

Board meeting after resident

Fiona Norton raised the issue in

a letter.

The New Zealand Transport

Authority recorded five crashes

at the crossing dating back to

2002 – one fatal, one serious, one

minor and two non-injury.

Community board member

Pauline Cotter said the crossing

would be investigated by staff.

“Sometimes these things aren’t

as dangerous as people think

they are. So we look to see if

there have been injuries, and if

there haven’t been many, then

it doesn’t rate very highly as a

priority.”

She said residents wanted

traffic lights installed near the

crossing to slow motorists down,

but a viable solution could not

be decided until the staff report

came back.

Fiona Norton lived just along

the road from Mairehau Primary

School, but she refused to

let her children walk to school by

themselves, in spite of being

able to see the crossing from her

gate.

“Young children and elderly

people use this crossing constantly,”

she said.

“It seems to be one or two cars

go through without stopping,

and if they do stop, the scary

thing is they’ll wait until you

get halfway and they’ll roar off

behind you.”

Mairehau Primary School

principal John Bangma said the

crossing had been an issue for

“many years,” and he had been

on the city council’s case to find

a solution.

“When I first started at

Mairehau we unfortunately had

an incident where an elderly lady

crossing the road was killed,” he

said.

“While people legally have to

stop when we have one side [of

the lollipops] out, most people

ignore it.”

He said the best solution

would be to install a set of traffic

lights at the corner of Innes Rd,

Philpotts Rd and Kensington

Ave to slow motorists.

“St Francis School has the

same issue with its crossing. If

we had those traffic lights, both

schools could cross safely,” he

said.

“I have just question, how bad

does it have to get before they

realise it’s a problem?”

St Francis School principal

Jo Earl said the main issue was

with motorists not respecting

the road rules.

“There have been minor

accidents, bumper to bumper,

out there – people get frustrated

because of the back-up of traffic

when both road patrols are

operating.”

NO PEDESTRIAN CROSSING

A bid to install a pedestrian

island on Main North Rd has

failed. The Papanui-Innes

Community Board requested

city council staff look into

installing a crossing between

Harewood and Langdons Rds

after safety concerns were raised

by Age Concern Canterbury.

The community board did

not recommend a crossing be

installed due to concerns that

pedestrians would have to cross

more than one lane of traffic to

get to the other side of the road.

A kerb extension was suggested

to lessen the distance between the

kerbs and the pedestrian island,

but this would have interrupted

the bus lane and required buses to

merge with traffic.

SURGICAL CRISIS IN TWO

WEE PUPPIES

Meet “Alice Victoria”, a 6 month old black and white Cocker Spaniel

and “Poppy” a 6 month old Pomeranian who recently had very long,

detailed and difficult surgeries basically to save their wee lives.

WHAT’S

INSIDE:

Helping

Papanui-

Community

Board

chairwoman

Ali Jones

open

the time

capsule

are Molly

Vaile (left),

Annabel

Allen, Rory

Forsythe

and Max

McNulty.

Let’s start with

the adorable, lets

run at a hundred

miles an hour,

Alice Victoria -

obviously named

after royalty (her

mum is British!).

Whilst out

coffeeing and

chatting with her

mum, Jean

pointed out a

very small 2mm

x 2mm small

white spot

inside her left

nostril. It wasn’t

bothering her

and didn’t seem

painful to poke.

She’s a very

adventurous

little girl so initially I thought trauma from

diving in and out of bushes. A short course

of antibiotics was prescribed in case of

localised infection.

Two months later it was still present, so I

decided to biopsy the spot. It hadn’t grown

and wasn’t painful or infected but her

mum wanted a diagnosis. I was shocked

and surprised to get a diagnosis back of

MCT (Mast Cell Tumor) which is a malignant

tumour commonly seen in dogs and cats –

although a MCT inside a nostril I hadn’t seen

before and in a puppy so young!

We urgently sought the advice of Oncology

specialists in Australia to work out what our

next move should be. They recommended

radiotherapy (very expensive and difficult to

do in pets with nasty side effects) or surgical

removal (also difficult to ensure complete

excision due to the location of the mass).

Chemotherapy was the 3rd option. Alice

had extensive blood testing, radiographs of

her lungs and a thorough Ultrasound of her

abdomen. No abnormalities or secondary

tumors were observed.

So Dr Steve Heap was nominated to perform

the delicate corrective surgery. It was an

exhaustive, delicate 2 hour procedure to

remove the mass and surrounding nasal

tissue and her subsequent draining lymph

node. Her wee nose looks slightly wonky

now but is functional and comfortable and

she’s alive!!! We are awaiting histology and

grading results from America to see whether

Chemotherapy will be needed as well.

We also performed a CT on Alice’s brain at St

Georges to make sure no tumour metastases

were detected as Alice started acting quite

bizarrely suddenly. Thankfully all was clear.

Tiny 2.5kg “Poppy” was referred to Catherine

Morganti one Friday for an endoscopic

examination as something was stuck in her

oesophagus and she couldn’t eat and was

trying to be sick. Usually these exams are

fairly quick and successful in retrieving the

culprit but not so in Poppy’s case.

Unfortunately after over 2 hours of

Catherine and Kirsty working the endoscope

down Poppy’s throat (with Poppy under

anaesthetic) and trying hard to dislodge

the stuck object, it was decided to perform

exploratory surgery, opening up her

stomach, trying to reach the object from

the inside. Steve scrubbed in as well and

eventually with a

team of 3 vets and

2 nurses on the

job, the object was

finally removed

(which was the

rubber off a

pencil and a large

doggie treat) – a 4

hour anaesthetic

in total on a

Friday night

(Lucky we

love surgery

and helping

pets as we

get many

Friday night

emergency

operations to

perform).

Poppy needed to spend a few nights at the

After Hours Clinic in critical care and a few

days with us on intravenous fluids to get her

stable, eating again and back to her cheeky,

gorgeous little self.

A successful great outcome for both Alice

Victoria and Poppy. Let’s hope the rest of

their lives going forward are not as dramatic

as the first 6 months have been!

Steve and I can’t thank our fabulous,

dedicated and expert team of Vets and

Nurses enough, who willingly stay behind

late to perform in many cases miracle

surgeries. We are so PROUD of our people

and the work they do on our patients.

Time capsule opened

• By Ashleigh Monk

ITEMS FROM the past

were rediscovered as the St

Albans time capsule was

opened.

Copies of The Lyttelton

Times and The Press from

the 1920s, and a message in

a beer bottle were among

the artefacts found in the

capsule.

The message in the

bottle could not be

extracted, but Papanui-

Innes Community Board

chairwoman Ali Jones said

council staff were working

on getting it out.

The time capsule was

buried in 1920 when the St

Albans Public Library was

constructed.

The library was renamed

the St Albans Community

Resource Centre in 1997,

and was demolished in

2011 as a result of earthquake

damage.

A number of items,

including the time capsule

and the foundation stone,

were salvaged from the

demolition.

The capsule was opened

on Friday by the Papanui-

Innes Community Board,

pupils from St Albans

Primary and St

Albans Catholic Schools,

and community representatives

from the St

Albans History group, St

Albans Residents’ Association

and St Albans Business

Association.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali

Jones said the board would

take suggestions from

locals for things to put in a

new time capsule.

“It has to be smaller than

a car,” she said.

Traffic lights one step closer

• By Ashleigh Monk

Aaron Keown

CITY COUNCILLOR Aaron

Keown is one step closer in his

two-and-a-half year battle to

get traffic lights at a contentious

Bishopdale intersection.

Options to upgrade the Breens,

Harewood and Gardiners Rds

intersection will be presented to

council to decide which will be

sent out for public consultation.

Cr Keown

said the issue

had been of

concern for

“decades.”

He said the

Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board voted

unanimously to present option

2a and option 3 to council.

Option 2a included a signalised

pedestrian crossing and

reducing Harewood Rd to one

lane on each side, and option 3

included installing traffic lights,

with an amendment to keep

Harewood Rd with two lanes on

each side, rather than reducing it

to one as was proposed.

“The councillors will decide

whether they’ll let the democratic

process take place and let

the public speak, or whether they

bounce it back because they don’t

want to hear what the answer is.”

He said he didn’t think option

2a was suitable as it would cause

more congestion at the intersection.

“For the suggestion to even

go in the report that we should

just cut Harewood Rd off is just

insanity . . . if that went through,

there would be protests,” he said.

“I think it’s too extreme, but

let’s see what the public says.

If the public come back and

overwhelmingly say: ‘Let’s cut off

Harewood Rd’ then I’ll support

that, but I’ll be surprised if they

do.”

Option 2a was predicted to

cost up to $400,000 to implement,

at $1.2m.

But Cr Keown said he believed

the price for the traffic lights was

“inflated.”

“I think the price is very

inflated to put the board off voting

for it . . . forget the price tag,

because it’s about the outcome.

It’s not our fault if staff on the

project have mis-managed their

budgets.”

He said the funds for the upgrade

project would come from

a combination of the board’s

budget, a potential NZTA

subsidy, and possibly even Long

Term Plan funding.

“I said at an LTP meeting that

I wanted to put on budget for

the traffic lights, and the mayor

asked staff: ‘Do we have the

and they said: ‘Yes, but we’d

have to take it from somewhere

else’.”

He said he hoped city councillors

would vote for both options

to go for public consultation, but

it would be a time-consuming

process.

“I believe the process is the

enemy of democracy,” he said.

“It just seems so back-to-front.

All it does is create a whole lot of

bureaucracy that means that you

get less roads, less sewerage, less

parks and less libraries for your

money, because there’s just so

much process around it.”

Cr Keown said the options

would be presented to council by

the end of October.

“Each Anglican congregation

Mr Stringer was an unordained

ex-pastor and said he

would step up and assist as a

Retired vicar Reverend Graham

Button had also been active in the

church and could help out until a

new vicar was found.

Mr Stringer said as most parishioners

disagreed with same-sex

marriage blessings, finding a vicar

who would not “impose” their

views on the rest of the church

was important.

“The day before he was announced

as Bishop-elect, Reverend

Peter Carrell assured St

Paul’s in person that the central

leadership will not impose a vicar

on us who was at variance with

our stance or theology. In other

words, we are to have a new vicar

of our persuasion which is a synod

recognition of parish culture.

That has been very reassuring and

Planting

day at

Grampian

Reserve

NATURE enthusiasts gathered

at Grampian Reserve last

weekend to take part in a

planting day.

About 25 members of the

Christchurch branch of 350.org

planted around 500 trees and

shrubs in the reserve.

The international organisation

350.org has 94 groups all over

the world making an effort to

fight climate change by raising

environmental awareness.

The planting day at Grampian

Reserve followed a tree rally in

the central city organised by

350.org to raise awareness of the

role trees play in carbon capture.

Plants included a mix of both

native and exotics and were part

of the city council’s green asset

renewal programme for urban

parks. The day was held to not

only emphasise how vital it is to

plant trees for carbon absorption

but also enable people to plant

trees themselves. The event

concentrated on native trees as

they were more likely to survive

warming temperatures than

non-natives.

Young director and all girls

• By Ashleigh Monk

A PLAY that started out as a

drama class assignment has

been transformed into an awardwinning

production by a St

Andrew’s College student.

Jackson Page won the regional

TheatreFest competition, then

went on to earn the emerging

director and best production of a

New Zealand play awards at the

national competition for Green

Grass.

“It was amazing, we didn’t really

expect it,” he said.

The 18-year-old wrote and directed

the play, and at the finals

in Wellington last week he also

starred in it.

“Unfortunately, one of the actors

I had in the regionals is part

of the show Les Miserables, and

he had shows on the weekend we

were in Wellington, so I actually

stepped into that role. Now I’ve

written, directed and starred in

the play.”

Jackson said the concept for

Green Grass came from a drama

class assignment.

“We came up with the concept

as a group, then I just ended up

writing all of it on my own,” he

said.

His teachers suggested he enter

it in the regional TheatreFest

competition, in which it was

judged the best overall play.

The plot of Green Grass follows

two people – one with a steady

job and the other who was “lazy”

and unemployed.

A narrator tells the story as the

two main characters switch lives,

ultimately missing their former

lifestyles. “It turns out they’re

stuck in another loop, and it’s

not really much better than what

they had before, and now there’s

nothing they can do about it,” he

said.

“It’s not really the happiest of

endings, which is what I like.”

crew win at TheatreFest

• By Ashleigh Monk

DOUBLE STANDARDS when

it comes to what boys can do and

what girls can do, is highlighted

in a play which led Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School to victory at the

national TheatreFest.

THe students performed Evan

Placey’s Girls Like That, which

pointed out the way in which

girls and boys are perceived

when it came to sexuality,

and earned the best youth

production and best overall

production awards at the event

in Wellington.

Director of theatre arts Peter

Rutherford said the play focused

on a character named Scarlett,

who shared a nude photograph

with a boy which was then

shared around publicly.

The story followed Scarlett as

she dealt with the fallout of the

photograph, ultimately ending

with her implied suicide.

But this was not the original

plot, which ended with Scarlett

discovering stories about her

strong female ancestors and

overcoming the scrutiny she

faced.

“It was originally a 90min play

and I cut it down to about 25min

to make it more reasonable,” he

said.

“I tried to get an essence of

the play without destroying it.

It was tricky, the moment you

start cutting things out you risk

diluting it, or losing some sense

from it.”

He said the point of the play

was to show the power that girls

had over other girls, and that

women should support each

other.

“At the end, Scarlett says:

‘You know, it’s funny, boys

have always been a*******s but

it seems to me these days that

girls have become the a*******s

that boys used to be.’ It’s kind of

about women gate-keeping the

behaviour of other women.”

He said he and the students

were stoked at being awarded

best youth production and best

overall production.

SCHOOLS

Pupils put

on PJs for

good cause

LAST WEEK pupils at

Harewood School rocked up to

class in their pyjamas.

But they didn’t forget to get

dressed that morning – the

school took part in a pyjama

day to raise money for Ronald

McDonald House.

School office manager Angela

Dini said the children jumped

at the chance to wear pyjamas

to school.

“It wasn’t that they were

running late but they were participating

in this term’s mufti

day. Our student council chose

the recipient for the great work

they do.”

The pupils raised $220 for

Ronald McDonald House.

School leaders Stella and

George, along with principal

Julie Greenwood, presented a

cheque to Ronald McDonald

House on Friday.

Former pupil gives back to school

Rotary Club

helps out

at St Mary’s

• By Ashleigh Monk

SIXTY YEARS ago Strowan’s

Michael Dore walked the halls of

St Mary’s School.

The former pupil was

welcomed back to the school

last week as a member of the

Christchurch Rotary Club, which

is helping St Mary’s with several

projects.

On his return, Mr Dore

presented a set of brand new

sitting benches to the school.

“With the connection to the

school and going there, it’s great

to be involved,” he said.

“To be asked to do that and be

involved in it was really good. I

thoroughly enjoyed it, and seeing

the children that were there.”

He said the school had

changed a lot since he left in

1858, but St Mary’s Church is

still standing next door.

“The classrooms aren’t the

same as what they were in my

day. But the church is still next

door, and I was actually at the

laying of the foundation stone of

the church, and I got married in

the church. So those memories

are still there.”

The school has also kept an old

registry book that had Mr Dore’s

name recorded.

“To see the registry book they

produced, hand-written by the

nuns who were the teachers at

the school, it was just unreal.

And my brother’s name is just

under mine, we both actually

joined the school on the same

day.”

Principal David O’Neill said he

was “overwhelmed” by the club’s

generosity.

“The club approached me and

said they’d like to adopt our

school and have something to do

with us. It really is wonderful,

what they’re giving us is about

$6000 worth of bench seats,” he

said. “For them to be able

to donate those to us means

we have extra money to buy

things for the students in terms

of their learning. We’re very

grateful.”

He said having Mr Dore

present the benches was an

honour.

“It’s amazing that it was 60

years ago he went here as a wee

fellow . . . it’s a nice part to the

story with a special connection

after all these years.”

Mr O’Neill said the school

had struggled following the

NOR’WEST NEWS

earthquakes, with enrolment

falling from 120 to 60. It had to

operate for a term in St Teresa’s

School hall, then in tents as the

school was repaired.

“We’ve had a really interesting

journey through the quakes .

. . everything is coming right

and you get nice people like

those from Rotary coming and

assisting and that’s fantastic.”

Mr O’Neill said the club

would work with the school on a

number of projects, including a

garden on the school’s grounds.

SCHOOLS Teen shaves for a cure

CREATIVE: Northcote School pupils Iroam Rule, Savanah Taylor

and Hannah Whitta work with fossils for science day.

Pupils dig up the past

PUPILS AT Northcote

School assumed roles as

geologists, palaeontologists and

volcanologists at their ‘science

day’.

The year 1-3 pupils dug for dinosaur

bones and crystals in the

school sandpit, explored fossils

and fossil patterns, learned about

the formation of crystals, tried

on fireproof gear and examined

minerals and rocks under a UV

light.

Principal Justin Perriam said

the pupils had a “fabulous time”

getting stuck into science.

“Taking on the role of scientific

explorers provides opportunities

for students to engage in clear

and simple science learning

activities from a young age,” he

said.

“This is exactly what our junior

classes at Northcote School have

been doing this term – actively

exploring and learning about

things that have lived in the past

and living things today.”

He said the day ran smoothly

with the help of Canterbury

University geology lecturer Kate

Pedley, who set up and ran some

of the hands-on activities.

Seven-year-old Lily said she

loved digging for crystals.

“I loved the day because I got

to go in our whanau groups and

dig in the sandpit, where I found

a crystal and everyone wanted it,”

she said.

“WHEN YOU’RE little, you

hear the word cancer and you

immediately think death.”

This is how Deirbhile Roberts

felt when she found out her

mum had breast cancer five

years ago.

And while the 15-year-old’s

mum won her fight with the disease,

Deirbhile was inspired to

do something to raise money for

people going through their own

battle. So she shaved her head.

Deirbhile, who is a student at

St Andrew’s College, took part

in Shave for a Cure and has so

far raised almost $4000 for Leukaemia

& Blood Cancer New

Zealand.

“I kind of just wanted to help

people in a way that I actually

made a difference.”

Deirbhile said she was more

than halfway to her $7000 goal,

and the support so far had been

“amazing”.

“It was a bit slow at first, but

then my mum sent a message to

a lot of my relatives overseas and

then hundreds of dollars started

coming in,” she said.

“Everybody at school has been

so supportive and helpful. It’s

just been really amazing.”

And as for having no hair,

Deirbhile said she liked her new

look.

“I thought it was going to be a

lot weirder to not have any hair,

but it’s been alright.”

St Andrew’s College dean

Liz Gormack helped Deirbhile

through the process and said she

was “incredibly proud” of the

teen.

“I was a bit nervous. I wasn’t

sure how she’d be feeling going

through with it . . . I was almost

going to get it done myself if she

decided she didn’t want to do it,”

she said.

“It’s such a good cause. It’s one

that a lot of us have to deal with

in our lives. I’m just so proud

She said a detailed plan had to

be mapped out so that Deirbhile

ADVERTORIAL

Enjoying the best of both worlds

When Jean and Dick

Yates rst moved into their

townhouse at Ngaio Marsh

Retirement Village 12 years ago,

they wanted independence as

well as security for any health

challenges the years ahead

might bring.

“When we rst moved into

a townhouse we had a lot of

independence without having

to worry about the safety of

the house or the upkeep of the

garden,’’ says Jean, sitting in

her tidy serviced apartment

overlooking the gardens.

“We were trying to decide

whether or not to move into

a smaller townhouse in the

neighbourhood, and then we

stopped and thought how stupid

we are because in a few years we

would need to have some kind

of care or support,” says Jean.

“So, we decided to put our

money down here,” says Dick.

Jean, 95, who was a

pharmacist, and Dick, 98, who

was an accountant, moved into

the village early 2006 and lived

in their townhouse for 10 years.

Ngaio Marsh village has

provided the perfect solution

to their needs over the years

since then.

The village, located in

Papanui, features independent

townhouses, serviced apartments

and a resthome and hospital,

all set amongst award-winning

gardens.

“It was close to our church,

close to where Dick had been

Residents Jean and Dick Yates love life at Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village

working, and it was all familiar

territory,” says Jean.

“We loved it. It suited us

extremely well.”

Ngaio Marsh is close to both

Merivale and Northlands

Malls, and also boasts an

all-weather bowling green,

indoor heated swimming

pool, spa, atrium, library,

gymnasium, hair salon, bar,

shop and croquet lawn.

“As much as we loved our

townhouse, the time came

when we needed more

support,” says Jean.

Dick moved into the resthome

and Jean into her serviced

apartment in 2016.

“We’re still free to come and

go” says Jean.

“It’s a big advantage really,

we have alarms so if you have

a fall you just press it, and they

come running.”

Ngaio Marsh sales advisor

Marie Kyle-Stevenson says

that serviced apartments can

be tailored to each resident’s

specic needs.

“Serviced apartments are

one-bedroom or studio

apartments that come with a

range of services, including

meals, housekeeping services,

morning and afternoon tea,”

says Marie.

“It becomes easier for people.

With our continuum of care,

our townhouse residents have

priority to move into a serviced

apartment should they need a

little extra assistance.

“As a couple it is convenient

to be able to stay in the same

village because in life you do

not always move forward at the

same rate with your health.”

For Jean, the biggest advantage

of living in a serviced apartment

at Ngaio Marsh is that she is still

near her husband. The resthome

is located downstairs from her,

just a “lift ride” away.

“The fact that we’re in the

same building means that we

don’t even have to go outside,

nothing has changed really,”

says Jean.

They spend time together

every day, either in Jean’s

serviced apartment, the resthome

lounge or in Dick’s room.

“I also still go to her Happy

Hours and she goes to mine,”

says Dick.

“The staff are just

marvellous. You get to know

them very well and they are so

friendly,” says Jean.

But it all comes down to

being, and feeling, at home.

As Dick gets up to leave, Jean

stops him.

“Have a cup of tea rst, dear,”

she says.

And Dick sits down smiling.

Burnside High School

Culinary Champions

Congratulations to Maggie Carroll and Liza Khorozova who

are now National Culinary Champions having won the National

Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge 2018, held recently at

the Manukau Institute of Technology.

Our team competed against seven regional winning teams,

coming away with gold medals. They had to prepare, cook and

present, four individually plated portions of an entrée and four

portions of the main course within 90 minutes.

The entrée had to contain fresh New Zealand grown tomato as

the principal component of the dish. The main course portions

had to include at least three fresh New Zealand grown

vegetables, one of which had to be a potato. The protein

component was produced from a Waitoa chicken breast.

Tomato Entree

Tomato tart with fresh tomato and basil salad, manuka smoked

tomato foam with goats cheese accompanied by a rich tomato

sauce.

Chicken Main

Chicken breast filled with broad bean farce on truffle potato

puree with petite crumbed sausage, seasonal vegetables

served with jus and tarragon cream sauce.

Golf Success

The Burnside High School Golf team came a very respectable

3rd in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Golf Final, on

Monday 3rd September, in Palmerston North.

Juliana Hung has been selected in the New Zealand Golf Team

to participate in the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympics from

6 - 18 October, with the team departing for Argentina on 3

October.

If you are keen to follow Juliana's progress in the competition

you can do so through the NZ Team App, plus there will also

be daily highlights packages on Sky and Prime in the evenings.

You will find the NZ Team App in the App Store under NZ

Team.

Governor General

visits the school

This term, Burnside High School was lucky enough to have Her

Excellency the Rt Hon. Dame Patsy Reddy, Governor General

of New Zealand visit our school. This began with a welcome

from our Kapa Haka group, Head Students and Senior

Leadership.

She visited a selection of classes in our very successful Visual

Arts department followed by a senior Hospitality classroom.

An interactive discussion took place on the ‘Into Motion’ hui

(@intomotionnz) which was a conference based around

gender equality held at Burnside High School last term.

Altogether, the visit was a success and we hope it gave

Her Excellency an interesting look into Burnside High School

culture.

Music Success

Term 3 has seen an incredible series of musical

achievements on the local and national stage. At the ARA

JazzQuest competition Burnside High School Big Band

won a Gold Award and the “Best Big Band” title for a fifth

consecutive year. Our Junior Jazz Ensemble and Funk

Band also won Gold Awards.

RAQS (Hijiri Yamamoto, Claudia Crosland and Lixin

Zhang) reached the National Final of the NZCT Chamber

Music Contest and won the KBB Award, a huge

achievement in this highly competitive field.

Our senior choirs took part in a day of workshops and a

concert under the guidance of renowned American Choral

Director Jo-Michael Scheibe. Later, they competed at

The Big Sing National Finale where both Bel Canto and

Senior Chorale won Gold Awards with Bel Canto also

picking up the Tour Time trophy for “Best Performance of

a Classical Work”. Malestrom once again won the regional

Barbershop Chorus contest and go on to compete at the

National Finals in Tauranga.

Our Concert Band and Orchestra are now National

Champions, both ensembles having won their class at the

Wellington Band and Orchestral Festival. The Concert

Band and Junior Concert Band also won Gold Awards at

the CWSTMA Wind Festival in Christchurch.

The finale to our busy term will be “The Rat Pack”; a

tribute to the songs of Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Dean

Martin performed by our multi award-winning Big Band

with 20 piece string section and vocal soloists from the

Specialist Music Programme. This concert is being held

at The Piano, 7.00pm on Saturday 29th September and

is sure to sell out so get your tickets quickly from the

student office.

Mathematics success

for Burnside High

In May this year 1100 top Year 12 and 13 Maths students from

throughout the country sat the preliminary paper for the

New Zealand Senior Mathematics Competition. From this

large group the top 15 students in the country were selected

to take part in the final at Victoria University in Wellington

on August 17th. Two of the top 15 were from Burnside High

School: Robin Wan, Year 13, and Ethan Ng, Year 12.

The final consisted of a 4 hour paper of very challenging

mathematical questions. After the papers had been marked

the top 3 place getters were announced. Ethan Ng was

placed second in this very prestigious competition. This is

an outstanding effort, especially considering that Ethan,

at age 13, was four or five years younger than the other

finalists. Congratulations to both Robin and Ethan.

Burnside High shows golfing

pedigree at national champs

• By Jacob Page

BURNSIDE HIGH School

continues to show why they

are so consistent on the New

Zealand golf scene.

The team of Juliana Hung,

brothers Hiroki and Hayato

Miya, and Amy Weng finished

third at the national secondary

school championships at the

Palmerston North Golf Club.

Burnside won the tournament

in 2016. They looked on track to

do it again this month after the

first round when they were tied

for the lead with Waikato’s St

Peter’s College.

However, they would have to

settle for third after McLeans

College golfer Jimmy Zheng

from Auckland shot a course

record 12 under 60 to power his

school to the title.

Hung was the most consistent

of the Burnside players shooting

a combined one over par for the

two rounds. Hung and the Miya

brothers were part of the championship

winning team in 2016.

Teacher in charge of golf Tracy

Taylor said with the Miya brothers

and Hung playing at Russley,

it helped the team to gel together

faster.

“We’ve had some great depth

here over the past five years or so,

and this year has been no exception,”

she said. “They’re all very

competitive but when another

player shoots 12 under and gets a

course record, there’s not much

you can do.

“Our principal went to watch

the team and he was amazed at

“We had Amelia Garvey who

confident that will continue into

the future.”

SPORTS

Big medal haul for

St Andrew’s swimmers

•From page 1

The 18-year-old, who has an

intellectual disability, won the

50m and 100m butterfly, the

50m, 100m and 200m freestyle

and 50m and 100m backstroke.

He also earned silver in

the 400m freestyle.

George (right) said he

enjoyed the 50m freestyle

race because it allowed

him to go as fast as he

could right from the

starting block.

He said winning so

many medals made his

heart beat fast with

adrenaline.

When St Andrew’s

were

presented

with

their

trophies,

George held his medals

them aloft.

George said he started swimming

when he was 14-years-old

and competes regularly for the

North Canterbury Club.

He said he would

like to continue

swimming after

finishing school

at the end of the

year and dreams

of becoming a

top level paraswimmer

in the

future.

There’s never been a more appropriate

time to buy a hybrid or electric vehicle.

Fuel costs are soaring, and global warming,

much of it attributed to fossil fuel emissions, is a

definite reality.

So if you want to do something for

the environment and save yourself some

cash at the weekly fill-up, then visit Trevor

Crowe, at CroweSport, 518 Moorhouse

Ave, for a lifestyle change.

The man who runs the business owns

the business, and Trevor, or any of the

friendly sales staff, can get you into an

electric vehicle or hybrid of your choice.

There are no fewer than 15 vehicles to

choose from, a mixture of fully-electric

plug-in Nissan Leafs to the hybrid petrol/

electric Prius.

Trevor says his stock consists of topgrade

models sourced from auction in

Japan. He chooses only the cars with

good battery life, and the cars on the yard

are displayed with the battery condition

visible. As with all cars on the yard at

CroweSport, the electric vehicles can be

serviced on-site by trained technicians.

Cars on-site vary in age from 2011 to

2017, and those with the latest generation

30kWh batteries can be expected to

provide a range of up to 190km. However,

petrol/electric Prius models are there for

those who experience range anxiety.

Prices for the Leafs start around $13,000

and end at around $30,000.

“The Leaf is the perfect urban commuter

– buyers who work in the city can travel to

work, swing by the supermarket on the

way home, and charge up from the home

supply overnight,’’ Trevor says.

“Charging costs can be measured

in cents, trickle charging overnight is

the kindest on the batteries although

fast charging on a journey won’t do the

batteries any harm.’’

Trevor is fully committed to the electric

revolution, and says there is a point of

difference in the models he chooses,

they are hand-picked and have workshop

backing. The first service is without cost,

as well as the first warrant of fitness.

While there is a heavy emphasis on

electric vehicles, the name CroweSport

is also synonymous with the sales of

Subaru vehicles. There are a wide range of

Subarus on-site, mostly pre-owned from

Japan.

Part of CroweSport’s success as a

business is down to Trevor’s proud

motorsport heritage. Major successes

include several New Zealand saloon

car championships, and the Asia Pacific

touring car championship, with a fourth

at Bathurst and third at the Wellington

Street Race in 1988. On shingle, Trevor

has won more than a dozen rallies, the

Ashley Forest rally sprint, and he is the

current Race to the Sky two-wheel-drive

champion. Trevor still competes, and

his race or rally cars are prepared in the

CroweSport workshop.

“Motorsport is at the cutting edge

of technology. Understanding the

complexity of tuning and setting up a

car for racing or rallying filters down to

day-to-day mechanics at workshop level,’’

Trevor says.

Trevor is an engineer and is still hand’son

in that side of the business. Engine

reconditioning is his speciality, although

he says they will take on anything from

a lube or tune-up right through to full

engine and gearbox overhauls. Nine

technicians are on site, and annually the

company takes on an apprentice, skills

developed through old-school training.

The CroweSport workshop team is highly

skilled and they will service any make or

model.

Trevor says many of his customers are

sport and recreational enthusiasts along

with those who are lifestyle and familyorientated.

And, of course, if you want a

performance enhancement, CroweSport

Subaru Specialists

has built up an enviable reputation in that

field.

Trevor’s philosophy is to get it right first

time, the company has high standards

and that reflects on the quality of the jobs

that go out the door. Although Trevor

leads from the front, he says the company

is like a family. Staff have input in the way

the company runs and operates.

“I want the customer to leave without

being presented with any surprises. We

treat the customer as if they are a family

member.

“Treat them like they are your mother,’’

he says.

Carrying the Trevor Crowe name also

means putting it right.

‘’We don’t expect things to go wrong,

but problems will be sorted out and the

customer is always told what to expect as

the process unfolds, and the cost will be

presented to the customer well before the

car is picked up.’’

For all your motoring needs or to

change your vehicle, the CroweSport

name means quality and reassurance.

“It’s about knowing how to do the right

thing by the customer,’’ Trevor says.

WHO WILL

MAKE THE

AB CUT?

Cobham Intermediate School students

have tested out the new hydroslide at

Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre.

Student Majenta Fasi said it was a lot of

fun. “I enjoyed how everything went, how

the lights kept repeating, it tricked my

mind. I really liked how it was indoor so I

didn’t get cold like the outside ones,” she

said. Fellow student Nathan Gardner was

also impressed. “It had awesome lights

on the inside of the hydroslide, and the

end was cool because the water goes

everywhere,” he said. City council head of

recreation, sport and events Nigel Cox said

the replacement indoor hydroslide would

be popular with children and fun-loving

adults. “The slide uses changes in lighting

to add to the excitement,” he said. Opening

hours for the hydroslide are from 3.30pm

until 6pm on weekdays and from 12pm until

6pm on weekends and public holidays.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

MESSAGE FROM

THE PRINCIPAL

The Marian College Future Focus

team, which includes Board and staff

members, is beginning to plan for

the new school. We are taking the

opportunity to visit other schools, and

in particular, to learn from the many

other rebuilds in Canterbury.

Our aim is to create a school, which is

designed to match our quality teaching

practice. Marian College’s special

Catholic character, school spirit and

traditions, such as Feast Day (pictured)

will also be reflected in our new school.

A key part of the planning will be

engaging with our whole community

for input into the new Marian College.

Marian College thanks the Catholic

Diocese of Christchurch and Bishop

Paul Martin for their ongoing support

and guidance. We are confident the best

decision possible will be made for our

school.

In the meantime, Marian is continuing

to flourish. I hope you enjoy reading

about our latest happenings.

With blessings

Mary-Lou Davidson

Marian College Principal

HOUSE PANELS BLESSED

FEAST DAY

FESTIVITIES

Feast Day – celebrating the

Assumption of Mary – is the most

anticipated religious event on the

Marian College calendar. Feast

Day includes Mass, which this year

was celebrated by Bishop Paul

Martin SM, a house group singing

competition, talent quest and

chanting competition.

Congratulations to Seymour House for

top points on Feast Day 2018.

Marian College parents Luke Carey and

Janine Altenburg-Carey have created

four woven house panels, made from the

majestic pin oak which once stood on the

former Marian College site.

The panels represent the four Marian

College houses – Takahe, Deans, Seymour

and Brodie – and were blessed by Bishop

Paul Martin SM at Mass on Marian’s

celebration of Feast Day this term. To

discover the story and meaning behind the

panels, visit the news section on the Marian

College website.

Olivia, Emilie, Janine and Holly

Altenburg-Carey with Bishop Paul

Martin SM.

REMARKABLE RESULTS

The Marian College literacy programme

– known as The Writing Group – is

producing remarkable results and helping

to bridge the gaps for some junior students.

“I think a lot of the students are finding the

one-on-one time really beneficial and we

are seeing the results. As well as measuring

progress, for us it’s been about bridging the

gap for these students, so they are better

placed to catch up and be closer to the level

they should be at,” explains teacher Ellie

Caradus who heads The Writing Group.

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson is impressed with the writing

group’s progress.

BIG SMILES NO MATTER THE CONDITIONS!

Our sports teams are living examples

of our school values of courage,

perseverance and commitment. Well

done to all our teams, coaches and parent

supporters who travelled to compete in the

Secondary Schools Winter Tournament this

month. Go Marian!

There really is no

substitute for dedicated teachers

working closely with students.

The progress we are seeing is a

result of positive relationships

between skilled Marian staff,

and students who feel supported.

Mary-Lou Davidson

Marian College teacher Ellie

Caradus heads The Writing Group.

Marian College is part of the Catholic

Community of Learning Kāhui Ako, where

schools support each other to lift student

achievement. The schools target agreed

focus areas, such as literacy, which are

funded and supported by the Kāhui Ako.

Friends in high places

Celebrating our Tui

“The Tui’s sing-songy warble is in the

distance as I write. Often when

I’m outside I answer back with a

somewhat substandard whistle

to try and make them answer.

At the edge of the path leading

down to the bridge is a large

tree. Most of the year it sits in

a rather unspectacular manner

waiting for it’s time in the sun.

Then, as if from nowhere, it

bursts into flower. Great clusters

of colour embellish it’s branches.

And then they come. The Tui. I once

counted twenty eight Tui from near and

far feasting on the nectar with frenzied passion.

The beauty of the tree and the Tui’s song was

enchanting.

Ever watchful on flax fronds or drunk on fresh Kowhai

nectar, our Tui with their sheeney feathers and white

bib are captivating; that haunting call to another bird

travelling through the bush. As a New Zealander, it

is the sound I most associate with

home.” Kirsty Nixon

Kirsty spent her early working

career in the advertising

industry pushing her brain to

explore words and imagery.

However the artistic pull was

strong and she chose to become

a fulltime artist in 1997.

Although she has explored other

subjects, she is constantly

drawn to the New Zealand

landscape in its various guises.

Her imagery often brings the native

bush to the foreground to give the feeling of stepping

into the scene, the coastline just within reach in the

background.

Kirsty lives in Auckland with her husband and two

children.

Kirsty exhibition runs from September 29 to 24

October at Little River Gallery.

The gospel

music of

Elvis Presley

"It's a great honour to fulfil one of Elvis'

dreams and put together a gospel show of

his favourite songs” - Andy Stankovich

ANDY Stankovich performs the Grammy

Award-winning Gospel Music of Elvis

Presley at the Isaac Theatre Royal in

November.

Marking the 41st Anniversary of Elvis'

passing, the incomparable Andy

Stankovich (whose uncanny voice has

stunned even Presley's own gospel backing

group, The Jordanaires) steps into Elvis'

shoes and recreates the unforgettable

sound of an icon with Elvis: The Gospel

Music.

Elvis has always been a big part of

Andy’s life. From as early as the age of

seven he clearly remembers singing Elvis

classics at family gatherings. Having

performed throughout Australia, New

Zealand, America and the Pacific, Andy's

ambition has always been to keep the

music of Elvis alive and this is evident in

the sincere performances he gives.

Musical Director, Mark Dennison, will

bring together an all star cast, including the

Memphis Show Band, a handpicked

selection of some of the country's finest

will be provided by a gospel choir

and male quartet.

For one night only, the music

that defined and shaped an icon,

will take centre stage. Timeless

classics from ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘In

the Ghetto’ to ‘Where Could I Go

But To The Lord’ will fill

Christchurch's Isaac Theatre

Royal.

Come and witness the

magnificence that is the Gospel

Music of Elvis Presley.

yourself

From the toes on your feet up to the hair

on your head you can spoil yourself on our

Expo Lounges and leave the Expo feeling a

little more relaxed and pampered.

with some

Pampering

sessions at

the Expo

Visit the Vivo Hair Lounge for all things

hair and with special expo only prices on a

range of hair and beauty products including

discounted GHDs you could walk away with

a few bargains as well. Sit down and have

your hair curled by the Vivo team for free and make sure you have your photo

taken in front of the Vivo photo wall so you can enter to win a fabulous makeover

package.

Mama Lash will be at the Expo for the first time. Stop by their large Pamper

Lounge where the team will be offering Expo visitors lash extensions and brow

treatments onsite. If you have always wanted long, thick and full eyelashes then

chat to the team onsite and discover the easy way to achieve fabulous looking

eyes that will make you stand out in a crowd. You can either have your eyebrow

extensions done at the show or simply watch a demonstration to see how this

stunning look is achieved.

After a successful show last year, Sparklewhite Teeth will once more be offering

teeth whitening treatments at the show. This area was buzzing last year with

visitors lining up to take advantage of the amazing expo only prices. Sparklewhite

Teeth have developed a new technology for teeth whitening that works so

effectively you can lighten your teeth by 2-10 shades in just one 60 minute

session. Create a positive attitude for yourself and improve your appearance while

achieving a more youthful look with your new radiant smile.

Sparklewhite will also have the fascinating Aduro’s LED mask onsite for visitors

to try out at the show. A re-invention of the traditional facial mask brought up-todate

through the use of LED light technology Aduro’s patented design follows the

contours of the face and covers the entire facial area in therapeutic light – offering

a full facial rejuvenating experience, for range of skin imperfections including acne

and signs of aging.

Before you leave the Expo take your tired feet over to the Southern Reflexology

Group Lounge and treat yourself to a relaxing reflexology treatment.

The ancient Chinese practice of reflexology, a manual therapy focusing on the

feet, has recently enjoyed a surge in popularity as a modern holistic therapy to

relieve pain and stress. Reflexologists believe that different areas on your feet and

hands correspond to other parts of your body, and massaging them stimulates

your parasympathetic nervous system to heal itself. Reflexology can help to create

a healthy harmonious state within the body and triggers the body’s natural powers

of self-healing.

Find out more from the Southern Reflexology Group onsite at the Women’s

Lifestyle Expo.

THE ULTIMATE

WEEKEND FOR

WOMEN IS

BACK!

The Expo is a perfect place to meet for a girl’s day out but it’s also a great

place to escape and have some well-deserved “me time” if you would

rather browse the sites by yourself at your own pace. With so much going

on and with Door sales only $10 there is every reason to visit and none to

stay at home!

Renee Murray from NZME Events says “Our aim is to have as wide of a

range of companies involved with the Expo as possible. Women are all

different and their individual interests are so diverse. One woman may

be interested in gourmet food but the woman beside her may be more

interested in organic skincare or booking a V8 Supercar drive. We have

artisan crafters like jeweller Debra Fallowfield exhibiting alongside national

brands like Vivo Hair and Suzuki. It’s great on the weekend to see all the

various women visit the show, from teenagers to business women, mothers

to grandmothers and friends simply enjoying each other’s company”.

CleanPaleo launching new product at the Expo

CleanPaleo is a NZ company dedicated to creating great tasting, clean,

whole food products that let your body know that ‘You Mean Business’ when

it comes to looking after yourself. The Expo will give visitors a chance to

buy their brand new Better Balls product, a revolution in healthy snacking

because they genuinely are a healthy snacking option – less than 20% sugar

and they taste amazing! Make sure you stop by the CleanPaleo site in the

Expo Taste Zone where you can also chat with reality TV couple and health

gurus Art Green and Matilda Rice.

Since appearing on The Bachelor NZ, Art and Matilda have both become

proponents of healthier eating with Art extending his interest in healthier

living into a business venture, part-owning Riot Foods, which consists of

sub-brands Clean Paleo and Poppy and Olive which you can both discover

at the Women’s Lifestyle Expo.

The popular Craft Zone will include artisan crafters from all over New

Zealand with gorgeous original products often not found in shops including

kitchen herb planters, soaps & beauty products, original art, home decor,

handmade jewellery, beeswax wraps and more.

For a ‘tasteful’ experience like no other, head to the ‘Taste Zone’ where you

can experience, try, and buy a range of fantastic products, so why not treat

yourself? From wine to paleo food, meat rubs & spices and even french

terrines, parfaits and pates you can tantalise your taste buds with a tasty

treat from the Expo Taste Zone.
