Sofia steps up to Junior Tall Ferns

• By Matt Salmons

SUMNER’S SOFIA Kennedy

is finally set to take her first

step onto the basketball court

wearing the silver fern.

Last week the 18-year-old

was told she would be playing

for the Junior Tall Ferns at the

FIBA Asia championships in

Bangalore, India, next month.

“I was actually selected [earlier

this year] as a reserve, but one

of the other players became

unavailable,” she said.

“It will be my first actual

New Zealand basketball

representation. It feels good to be

able to finally put on the silver

fern.”

Sofia also competed at

the cross-country world

championships in Paris in

February and then at the

Australian cross-country

championships on the Sunshine

Coast last month.

$110 rates

may fund

Akaroa

health

centre

• By Matt Salmons

AKAROA RATEPAYERS could

be paying $110 more each year for

four years if a proposed targeted

rate goes ahead.

The Akaroa Community Health

Trust is asking the city council to

put a targeted rate on about 3000

ratepayers in the Akaroa area to

help fund the new health centre.

Akaroa Pharmacy owner Garry

Benson said he did not mind helping

to pay for the health centre,

but wanted more for the $3000-

plus he already pays in rates.

“We get very little service at all

from the council. There’s no rubbish

collection at home or street

lights.”

Akaroa Village Inn owner

Shane Mitchell-Bathgate said the

idea was not well thought out.

“It sounds like a trivial amount

but at the end of the day you’re

making people pay for something

that’s public infrastructure.”

Akaroa resident Victoria

Andrews said she was happy to

help fund the health centre, but

felt a tourism levy should be used

rather than a rate.

from the editor’s desk

I GET the feeling there will be some fallout

over the possibility of a targeted rate to

help pay for the new health centre in

Akaroa (page 1).

The Akaroa Community Health Trust is

asking the city council to instigate a targeted rate for the 3000-

odd ratepayers in the area.

That of course will land on people who occupy their own

homes, and those who have holiday homes.

Pharmacy owner Garry Benson raises a good point in our article.

If ratepayers are asked to pay for the health hub, he wants

more bang for his buck.

“We get very little service at all from the council. There’s no

rubbish collection at home or street lights,” says Garry.

Food for thought.

A RESIDENTS’ group and

community boards say the

time frame is not fast enough

for a city council report on

resolving issues with flood zone

management policies..

City council staff were set

to recommend an approach

to Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods to fast track the

amendment to the District

Plan at tomorrow’s city council

meeting.

The report said staff would

come back to council with the

outcome in December.

Christchurch Coastal Residents’

United deputy-chairman

Warwick Schaffer said it was

good to see progress, but felt it

should happen faster.

“It doesn’t feel like it’s urgent,

it feels like it’s paying for time,”

he said.

The CCRU would present a

deputation to the city council on

the matter tomorrow, alongside

a joint deputation from the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

and Coastal-Burwood community

boards.

The city council unanimously

voted and requested urgency

on amending the District Plan’s

high flood hazard management

policy with an enabling clause

earlier in the month.

The absence of such a clause

has made it almost impossible

for some Southshore and

Redcliffs residents to build or

renovate on their land.

The fastest method to do

so would be for Dr Woods to

invoke section 71 of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act.

Another option was asking

Cabinet to change the Order

in Council so the independent

hearings panel can be

reconvened to address the

issue.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said the December

time frame did not fit with

the urgency the city council had

put on the matter.

“From our perspective, the

time frame is unreasonable and

needs to be more urgent.”

Because of the expected

timing, he said the matter

could drag “well into next

year” before residents saw

too slow.

any resolution.

In the meantime, the process

of building or renovating in the

high flood hazard management

area would remain the same.

Mr Schaffer said city council

staff had said in the report that

31 resource consents had been

processed in the affected area,

but the CCRU would request the

numbers on how many of them

were for rebuilding an existing

property.

Dr Latham said that even if

people were getting consents

“the social, emotional and

financial cost has been

extremely high and that’s totally

unacceptable.”

Pre-purchasing

of eco-burial

plots unlikley

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Matt Salmons

PRE-PURCHASING of

eco-burial plots in Diamond

Harbour is unlikely to become a

reality, but an investigation into

expanding it could.

Eco-burials in Diamond Harbour

dominated discussions at a

Cemeteries Bylaw and Handbook

review hearing last week, with 32

of the 40 submissions focusing on

the issue. Submissions were heard

by a panel including city councillor

Mike Davidson and community

board members Helen Broughton

and Melanie Coker.

Cr Davidson said the panel

would recommend to the city

council in November to go ahead

with proposed changes, with no

provision made for pre-purchasing

in Diamond Harbour.

Even only allowing partners of

those interred could see the site fill

up too fast, Cr Davidson said.

“It’s obviously a very sensitive issue

and I understand the concerns,

unfortunately, it’s not that simple.”

Green Burials Group member

Ann Thornton, whose husband Jim

was already interred there, said she

was still confident a “humane” solution

could still be found for those

wishing to be buried in “at least the

same cemetery” as their partners.

COMMUNITY groups between

Heathcote and Sumner have

clarity about making ideas for

uses of red-zoned land a reality

after a meeting last week.

On Thursday, more than 60

residents from Heathcote, Redcliffs,

Mt Pleasant and Sumner

met with Land Information

New Zealand and Life in Vacant

Places to discuss the process for

turning some of the more than

50 areas of Port Hills red-zoned

land to community use.

Sumner Community Residents

Association member Liza

Sparrow said the meeting had

been a good opportunity for

disparate groups with similar

goals to meet.

Those who attended had

left with an understanding of

LINZ’s processes around groups

utilising the red-zoned areas, Ms

Sparrow said.

“It will break down the barriers

and it will be good for LINZ

to connect with the community.

“There was also a feeling we

need to get the youth involved.”

Now residents’ associations in

those areas would arrange further

meetings to decide which

ideas to take further.

The most out-there idea

mooted on the night was a mudslide

“Nothing crazy, no dance

Mt Pleasant Residents’ Association

member Jocelyn Papprill

said the small size of the Port

to houses made it “difficult

to have big, crazy ideas.”

“The wonderful thing was that

we got an idea that there is a way

Sara Templeton said people

the night, she said.

Cr Templeton said she had

approached city council staff

to investigate whether shipping

containers, used to mitigate

rockfall risk, could be removed.

The containers had been there

so long, Cr Templeton said, that

people may think they had been

forgotten about.

She said they were a reminder

of the damage caused by the

2010 and 2011 earthquakes

and their removal would be a

psychological boost to the community.

“If they’re not needed, it would

be great to see them gone.”

•From page 1

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Pam

Richardson said she could not

comment on the request as she

was part of the ACHT.

She said a report would come

back on whether the rate would

happen, but it was a matter for

community consultation rather

than board approval.

Deputy Mayor and fellow board

member Andrew Turner said the

board had previously expressed

support “in principle” for the

idea.

He said the city council had

consulted on the concept in “a

general sense” and would need to

further consult the community

before making a decision.

“The exact area of Banks

Peninsula subject to the targeted

rate, the amount of the rate, and

its duration are yet to be determined.”

A clause in the agreement to

build the new health centre required

a financial contribution of

$2.5 million from the community

within four years of the centre’s

completion, due around June.

The extra rates would last four

years, or until the money raised

reached the $1.3 million target.

That would combine with the

$1.2 million already raised by the

ACHT.

City council head of financial

management Diane Brandish

said staff were looking into the

request.

ACHT chairman Gordon

Boxall said “services being

established will benefit the entire

Akaroa and Bays community.”

“For $2 per week for a fixed

period of time, this is one way we

can all have the opportunity to

contribute.”

the way the school

is working to stay

connected to its

community

ON THE cusp of

our Redcliffs School

production opening,

where great excitement is

building, it seems fitting

to just pause and reflect

on the great spirit of our

incredible community.

For over seven years

Redcliffs School has been

dislocated from our local

community and as such we

are always on the lookout

for ways that we can bring

our children and families

together to just ‘be’ a

community.

Our school production

is one such way.

The production of Annie

is the fourth time that we

have asked Sumner School

to give up their hall facility

for two weeks so that

we can bring our school

together to sing, dance, act

and celebrate the fact that

our school is alive

and well, thriving and

still doing great things

in our home away from

home.

Our sincere and heartfelt

thanks to our neighbours

at Sumner School for their

generosity, understanding

and showing the strength

of community as we all

look after each other in

the best interests of our

precious akonga – our

children.

You rock Sumner

School.

I have also been pushing

in the District Plan, as I

have spoken to one of the

commissioners who was

on the panel.

They said that it was very

clear in their decision that

they wanted to grant relief

by way of the residential

overlay.

This would ensure

owners of residentially

zoned land that they

could build a residential

dwelling subject to the

RDA, relevant restricted

discretionary activity and

this was to be done on a

non-notified basis.

The RDA rule was

included in the plan,

however, the policy has

been omitted and in the

absence of the policy, staff

seem to think they have

no legal basis to apply the

RDA rule.

nay-sayers are of course

with us.

There are experts who

can apparently calculate

the trajectory of rolling

rocks with uncanny

accuracy.

The Bridle Path and

Major Hornbrook Track

both have signs warning us

of falling rocks, but remain

open.

Mt Pleasant Bluffs track,

Chalmers Track and

Morgan’s Valley tracks also

have the same warnings,

but are closed.

After the 2010

earthquake we breathed

a sigh of relief because

nobody was killed and we

were told it was a once in

5000-year event.

A few short months later

185 people were killed

including Messrs Wright

and Foldesi, but that was a

once in 25,000-year event,

so the experts were still

right.

I wonder if the

statisticians who assess the

risk of physical injury from

falling rocks consider the

mental damage their red

stickers and prohibition

notices do to people who

are just trying to live their

lives?

We each have to consider

the risk of crossing the

road or jumping out of an

aeroplane before we do

it. Can’t we be trusted to

assess our own risk and act

as we choose?

We do not need any

more people telling us

what not to do. The

establishment of the

memorial garden is a great

idea. We should just do it.

LIGHT UP: Te Hekenga viewed at night, with the eels lit up and the woven baskets visible on the

ground. ​

Illuminated eels feature

in new art exhibition

• By Matt Salmons

THE NEWLY-opened Ka

Awatea art exhibition contains

works from a number of artists,

but Lyttelton sculptor Piri

Cowie’s piece literally sits high

above the rest.

The main exhibition was in

a converted container at the

new Lyttelton Museum site and

focused on miniature

pieces inspired by items

in the museum’s collection.

Cowie’s piece Te Hekenga,

the migration,

was suspended above

on a wire between the

Lyttelton Coffee Company

and the opposite

corner of the site.

Sculpted tuna eels

seemed to swim along the wire

and were illuminated at night.

The piece was a way to uplift

the species in people’s minds,

Cowie said, shifting the perspective

of them from something

found only at ground level.

She said it also invoked a

Ngāi Tahu creation myth where

eels came from the heavens to

earth, the lights on the sculpture

evoking the light of the stars and

their celestial origins.

Piri Cowie

“It’s a great way to

acknowledge the sacredness of

tuna.

“I hope it encourages people to

consider them for their future.”

Each eel was made of an

aluminium composite and the

process of designing and manufacturing

them had taken most

of the year.

Cowie said it had “taken a pā”

to complete, with many

Lyttelton residents

lending expertise.

The final work was

installed earlier this

month.

Cowie had also

worked alongside weavers

Paula Rigby and

Leisa Aumua, whose

waikawa, or kumara

baskets, reinforced the

theme of mahinga kai, traditional

food gathering.

“We wanted to show the

connection, it’s not just about

the tuna,” Cowie said.

The waikawa are woven from

green harakeke, flax, and use the

whole blade in their construction.

Cowie called herself a

“contemporary Māori artist,”

whose passion was grown by

her mentors at Canterbury

University’s School of Fine Arts.

That passion for Māori art had

given her many opportunities to

travel and share her work with

indigenous artists from around

the world.

Cowie’s work had long focused

on capturing the mauri, or

the essence, of eels and their

relationship to the land and

people.

“I actually started as a

painter but I moved on to

sculpture.”

She landed her first sculpture

commission in 2009, designing

and producing the bronze eels in

the water feature outside the city

council building on Worcester

St.

The transition to sculpture

involved “a lot of learning” but

Cowie said she just “had to find

a way.”

Another prominent sculpture

of Cowie’s was Kirihao, outside

the Aurecon building in central

Christchurch.

It again had an eel focus, using

another Ngāi Tahu word for the

species; hao.

“Tuna are a taonga for

Ngāi Tahu people. They’re

really highly valued and most

people would be aware they’re

endangered. They’re pretty

precious.”

•From page 1

She finished 16th at the

“It’s been a big year and hard

at times to balance two sports,

leadership roles at school and

academics. But it has been

rewarding.”​

Sofia’s first big basketball

tournament was the national

under-13s in 2012, where she

played for the Canterbury B

“I was getting pretty

discouraged, but I slowly

kept going at it and kept

training.”

That perseverance paid off

and, in 2016, she was invited to

a Canterbury Wildcats training

camp.

“It was pretty daunting. I felt

out of my depth, but I figured I

had nothing to lose.”

The year 13 Middleton

Grange student then took that

same attitude to an invitational

secondary school highperformance

training camp​this

month hosted by Kiwi NBA star

Steven Adams in Palmerston

North.

It was her performance there

that secured her Junior Tall

Ferns spot.

“It was just good to play with

other top players and adapt to

other coaches. You have to adapt

and just go hard.”

She said the main lesson the

young players learned was “to

put everything out there on the

court.”

Last month Sofia got her first

taste of the international game

while playing for the Wildcats

against a visiting Hawaii

University side.

She said it gave her perspective

on the United States game.

The Wildcats lost the game by

only four points.

“It was good to get a gauge on

Lyttelton Bakery – Taste the goodness

Dessert lovers from far and near are

driving through the Lyttelton Tunnel in

hoards for the Willy Wonka type gourmet

sweet treats at a small Lyttelton bakery.

Chocolate-filled syringes stabbed into

doughnuts, jelly tip cheesecakes and

cookie cake stackers are just some of the

gems flying off the shelves at the Lyttelton

Bakery.

“I went from making 30 doughnuts a

day to 350 a day. Saturday is passing 800,”

said Bree Scott, owner of Glamour Cakes,

based at the Lyttelton Bakery.

“The community has truly embraced

our goodies and we’re so appreciative that

our customers love and enjoy the treats.

Bree Scott, owner of Glamour Cakes and Ian Scott, owner of Lyttelton Bakery

Besides, that’s our goal at Glamour Cake

and the Lyttelton Bakery, to create food

people, love to enjoy.”

Bree, is the 2014 New Zealand Baker of

the Year and founded Glamour Cake, the

newest craze taking over the small port

town.

Baking for about seven years, the

Sumner local completed her three-year

apprenticeship at the Lyttelton Bakery

after finishing Catholic Cathedral College.

In 2015, she worked at a boutique

bakery in Sydney making “ooh la la-type

cakes”, she said. On returning home from

Australia, she developed her own unique

gourmet flare to showcase through her

treats.

“I really wanted to do something

different. It’s not your everyday doughnut.

And it’s really caught on with our

customers.” Bree adds.

She posts her daily creations and

updates to her Glamour Cake Facebook

page which has more than 40,000 likes.

“Social media is amazing,” Bree adds.

“I never expected it to go this big with so

many people, this fast.”

“All the hard work has paid off.” She

smiles.

Due to the company’s fast growth this

year, meeting demand on her own has

been difficult. On top of her average 70-

hour work week excluding Sundays, she

now has one permanent assistant.

Bree feels privileged to be doing what

she loves every day, by creating products

which make people happy.

“I love how our food is bringing people

to Lyttelton. We lost a lot of people and

buildings because of the earthquake.

This ‘food’ draw is helping people forget

or overcome their fear of the tunnel

with delicious, yummy treats in our

picturesque waterfront community.

After losing their London St site after

the 2011 earthquakes, Lyttelton Bakery

was in a portocom for more than four

years before moving to their spot at 8

Norwich Quay.

The passion for baking runs in the

family. Bree’s father Ian Scott, owner of the

Lyttelton Bakery, said the rise of Glamour

Cake put Lyttelton back on the map.

“We’re very proud of Bree, she’s doing

extremely well and teaching the old boy

new tricks.” Ian says with a hint of pride

in his reply.

Linda Preddy (Manager)

Chris Poff (Coach)

The Lyttelton Rugby Club would like to thank all their sponsors

for their support for our 53rd annual Titahi Bay Trip 2018

Steve Mateer

(Assistant Coach)

Over the weekend of 14-16/9/18 Lyttelton hosted Norths

(Titahi Bay) for our annual trip. The game was played in

summer like conditions with both teams prepared to pass the

ball amongst the forwards and backs. Norths dominated the

first half but Lyttelton was still prepared to try their arm at

team moves. The second half started off with Norths confident

and they dominated this half as well. But Lyttelton never gave

in and were courageous throughout the game and scored the

final try of the match with a never die attitude. Although the

score was 58-7 to Norths, both teams kept the high standard

of sportsmanship that this annual match has been played in in

the past.

Lyttelton Rugby Club would like to thank the Lyttelton

Volunteer Fire Brigade for allowing us to use their venue for our

aftermatch function at such short notice. Our thanks to Mark

Buckley and his crew for their generosity.

We would also like to thank all our sponsors, especially our two

major sponsors Dwayne Pool from Marinetec Engineering and

The Lyttelton Port of Christchurch.

The trip was created 53 years ago by two mates, Norman

(Skeeta) Bachop from Lyttelton and Bill (Pincha) Martin from

Titahi Bay. They were both coaching teams for their clubs and

over a few drinks in a local Lyttelton bar they couldn’t agree

on who had the better team, so it was decided that Lyttelton

would travel to Titahi Bay and hopefully put this debate to rest.

So here we are 53 years later and the trip is as healthy at it ever

was at the start. Looking forward to the 75th year.

AN ANTI-BULLYING app

created by Diamond Harbour

School pupils has got the

attention of a technology

company after it was the runnerup

for a digital technology award.

Year 8 pupils Fern and Chara

entered the coding section of

Grow Waitaha’s DigiAwards with

their app Bullying Free.

The awards, held at St Margaret’s

College this month, provided

a chance for primary and

intermediate pupils to showcase

their digital skills, creativity and

innovation.

Fern and Chara impressed the

judges with their app’s message,

thought and complexity.

The app was developed during

Bullying Free Awareness Week in

May, and was created to support

young people experiencing bullying.

One of the judges, David

Carter from Stratos Technology

Partners, said he would like to

see work on the app continue.

He said it could be “rolled out

to schools as part of their new

pupil induction process.”

“I would love to see this application

built and, ideally, the

application would be built by the

students themselves with mentorship

from the tech community,”

Mr Carter said.

The app’s design was well

thought out and an “example of

how technology can be used to

help address the issue.”

“We particularly liked the fact

that it was not overly complex

and hence would be reasonably

simple to build and realise value

from,” he said.

The Bullying Free app was

chosen for its message, thought

and complexity.

Help trap

pests at

at Living

Springs

• By Matt Salmons

FIT VOLUNTEERS are needed

for pest trapping at Living Springs

in Allandale.

The campground needs people

over the age of 16 to under take

the work for a minimum of two

hours a week or a full day once a

month.

The work is in support of Living

Springs’ three-year-old trapping

project. Park manager Anna

Colombus said there are four trap

lines located in the main gullies.

“Each runs for about 500m up

the gully with three types of traps

to check along the way. We have

Goodnature possum and rat traps

and DOC200 traps,” she said.

“They need to be checked a

minimum of once every four

weeks to remove any bodies and

refresh lures.”

There will be two options for

volunteers. They can either look

after all four trapping lines for a

full day each month, or several

people can take on a line each for

two to three hours a month.

The park will provide full training

on how to clear, reset and rebait

the traps and where the tracks

are located. It will also provide the

relevant safety information.

Gear and training on what to

record in the field will also be

given, as well as refreshments

following the shift. If you want

Ironman ready to take

SPORTS

ASPIRATIONS: Sumner will be looking to emulate the success

of their 2016/2017 senior cricket side when the new season

starts next month.

Sumner aims for strong

start to cricket season

• By Matt Salmons

AFTER A LESS than stellar

finish to last season, Sumner’s

senior cricket team is ready and

equipped to recapture their

former glory.

Club captain and coach Dan

Vann said inconsistency and the

loss of their feeder

team from division

three had impacted

their success last year.

“We did alright, we

got third overall. But

we’d won at least half

of the trophies over the

three years before last.”

Vann said the club

have a list of goals to

achieve this season,

which starts on the

first weekend of next

month,

“At least to win one of the

three cups – either the one-day,

two-day or overall. And to

develop the young guys we’ve

got, continue our successes from

previous years and possibly get

our second team into a higher

grade,” he said.

The club also hopes to start

a women’s team and teams to

play in the grades under division

three.

To achieve those goals, Vann

said the club have “recruited

well”, reinstated their feeder team

and will look at increasing the

number of training sessions each

week.

Dan Vann

The club have offered a

scholarship programme this year

to attract the young blood needed

to secure their future.

Three young players were

selected in the end – spinning

all-rounder Angus Hooper, and

skilled opening bowlers Tyler

Walker and Nawid Mohammady.

For the scholarship

players, Vann said

the club will waive

its fees, provide extra

professional training and

some gear, as well as get

the players in touch with

agents for English teams.

He said they had also

attracted two top-order

English batsmen in Tom

McGeorge and Tom

Davies.

The upcoming season

will have a different

dynamic than the past, Vann

said. It will be the first time

metro clubs would be merged

at the championship and

premiership levels.

“It will be good to play against

some different players and at

some different grounds,” Vann

said.

This season will be the first

with new club president Ross

Gunn at the helm after long-time

president Ray Steele stood down

from the role last month.

The club will also start

the season with a new pitch

after members re-laid it this

month.

MIKE PHILLIPS is ready for

his biggest challenge yet – the

Ironman World Championships

in Hawaii.

The Mt Pleasant athlete left on

Sunday to allow himself three

weeks to acclimatise and scout

the track ahead of the October

13 event. He qualified for the

championships after taking

home silver at Ironman Barcelona

in October, his first ever

ironman event.

He finished the 3.8km swim,

180km cycle and 42km run at

Barcelona in 7hr 52min 50sec,

making him the second fastest

Kiwi ironman ever.

However, the Hawaii course

looks “brutal”, Phillips said.

It includes an ocean swim and

a coastal cycle track against severe

wind and baking sunshine

before finishing with a run

through a lava field.

“Apparently there’s lava on

either side of the track. You’ve

got to experience it to know

what it’s like.”

He said he believes he will be

able to finish in the top 10 if he

has a good day.

“It would be cool to have a

podium finish, but in your first

year it’s probably a bit hard.”

Phillips has spent the last

two years as a professional

triathlete after leaving his job as

a structural engineer to pursue

the sport.

“I’m not sure how long the

body will hold out so I’ll make

the most of it.”

As a professional, Phillips

has competed in more than 10

events each year, most of them

overseas, with prize money providing

enough income to keep

him going.

The transient lifestyle could

be “a bit of a tax”, he said. But he

formed a group of friends who

he regularly competes against.

“You can actually make some

quite good friendships at the

events.” He trains for a

minimum of 30 hours every

week, swimming 25km,

running 100km and cycling

500km.

The transition from training

as an amateur to training as

a professional has not been

a”huge jump” as he now has

more time for recovery, he said.

“Even after a day at work

you’re pretty tired and I

found I was getting sick

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.

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.

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,

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.

Zealand with gorgeous original products often not found in shops including
