Fate of

teenagers

charged in

‘drown him’

case known

this week

• By Sophie Cornish

THE OUTCOME of the longrunning

“drown him” court case

will be known on Friday.

Two teenagers charged over the

alleged attack after the Rolleston

fireworks display in November

last year appeared in the Youth

Court last week.

The now 17-year-olds were defending

a charge each of causing

injury with intent to injure. They

were 15 and 16 at the time. The

case grabbed headlines after the

15-year-old victim (now 16) was

allegedly attacked on Tennyson St

after leaving the fireworks display.

He was pushed into a water race

and had his head allegedly held

under water, while others in the

group watching yelled: “Drown

him, drown him”.

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll heard

evidence over two days last week.

He reserved his decision which

will be released on Friday. The

Selwyn Times was prohibited from

covering the case last week.

The teenagers who appeared

in court were originally charged

with aggravated robbery, but had

their charges amended in August.

The victim was left with a gash

on his face that required stitches

and a night in hospital.

THAT MUST be one mean so and so who

put a slug into Kylo the cat (page 3).

And now Kylo’s family is having to pick up

the tab for most of the vet bills, which don’t

come cheap.

Already the bill is up to $2500, but luckily help has arrived in

the form of a Givealittle page. This online fundraising tool, which

has rendered things like Telethon redundant, has raised more

than $700 to help pay for some of the costs.

That is a huge relief for Kylo’s family, and no doubt Kylo too,

because it means there’s likely enough money around to repair the

damaged cat.

But it’s one very expensive slug.

Great feat on page 1 today with David Beatty’s hat-trick. Top

stuff.

Fundraiser to pay for

cat’s vet bill after he was shot

RECOVERING: Lachlan Sewell with the family’s cat Kylo, who

was shot with an air rifle. (Right) – Kirsty Sewell with Kylo.

MORE THAN $700 has been

raised to help with a Prebbleton

cat’s veterinary bill after he was

shot with a high-calibre air rifle.

Kylo, 2, left his house on

Conductors Rd on November 27

and didn’t return home for three

days. His owner Kirsty Sewell

said it wasn’t unusual for him to

stray away from their house but

she did become concerned as

time went on.

When Kylo returned, Mrs

Sewell picked him up and placed

him on her eight-year-old son

Lachlan’s bed.

“I didn’t realise he was hurt

until I put him down and I was

like ‘oh, no.’ He was limping and

he had a big lump in his back,”

she said.

Mrs Sewell took Kylo straight

to the vet where X-rays determined

he had been shot and had

a “major fracture” in his front

leg.

“We now know, post-surgery,

the bullet went into the front of

his shoulder, so somebody was

taking a kill shot,” she said.

Mrs Sewell said what had

happened to Kylo made her feel

“sick” and she could not understand

why someone would want

to hurt him.

Kylo had surgery last week

to remove the pellet and has a

brace around his leg.

It’s possible his leg may have

to be amputated, but Mrs Sewell

said they will have to wait to see

if it heals first.

Mrs Sewell’s friend has set-up

a Givealittle page to help with

Kylo’s vet bill, which is currently

about $2500.

Maddie back in Starship

• By Emily O’Connell

KIDNEY transplant recipient

Maddie Collins is undergoing

further testing in Starship

Children’s Health in Auckland

following a kidney scare.

Tests results last Tuesday

showed her kidney function

“wasn’t great” and she had to

be admitted to Christchurch

Hospital.

Maddie, 14, of West Melton

was on route to Nelson with

her grandmother Elaine Manson

when her mother Sarah

Manson-Collins received the

results.

The pair drove back immediately

and Maddie was admitted

to Christchurch Hospital for

two nights before being flown to

Auckland on Thursday.

Maddie, who suffers from the

kidney disease nephrotic syndrome,

underwent a successful

kidney transplant in January.

Mrs Manson-Collins said they

are unsure what is going on with

her kidney and they hope they

will be able to “get to the bottom

of it” at Starship.

“She’s great, she’s a wee bit

scared if I was honest,” she said.

Mrs Manson-Collins is unsure

of how long they will be in

Auckland for but says Maddie is

HEALTH: Maddie Collins, 14, is back at Starship Children’s

Health in Auckland after tests showed her kidney function

“wasn’t great.”

undergoing further testing and

might also need a biopsy.

Maddie’s ongoing health

issues have meant she will be

going back to Southern Health

School next year.

It comes after she has spent

the past six months or so studying

at St Margaret’s College,

having been at health school

prior to that.

Mrs Manson-Collins says

Maddie will have a “dual

enrolment,” where she remains

enrolled at St Margaret’s College

but she will be attending health

school and will have a health

school tutor.

“She’s missed so much school

and something’s going on in her

gut and it’s affecting her kidney

and her well-being and we

need to get on top of that. She’s

just not managing full days of

school,” she said.

Health school is a school for

year 1 to 13 students who are too

unwell to attend full-time education.

It offers tutoring at home,

hospital or one of its learning

centres.

Although Maddie was initially

“a bit hesitant” about going to

health school instead of St Margaret’s,

Mrs Manson-Collins

says Maddie is looking forward

to focusing on her core learning.

Maddie and her family were

told on January 16 their five-year

wait for a kidney match had

been found.

They flew from Christchurch

to Auckland early the following

day and Maddie underwent an

initial operation and then a second

operation to reposition the

kidney hours later at Starship.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie had an “amazing recovery”

in spite of the first 48 hours

not going to plan.

Maddie received a kidney

transplant from her father

Adam Collins five years ago but

her body rejected it.

With only a two per cent

chance of finding a donor match

in New Zealand, the family

did not expect to find another

kidney in the country.

Youth aid officer for Selwyn

• By Emily O’Connell

SELWYN WILL have its own

youth aid officer from next year.

The officer will work with

schools in preventing children

and young people reoffending

and will be based at the Rolleston

Police Station on Tennyson

St from March.

The decision

is part of the

nationwide

boost of 1800

police officers

over the next

three years.

Currently,

Lane Todd

the district is

covered by the

Hornby youth

aid officer.

Canterbury Metro Area Commander

Superintendent Lane

Todd said the community policing

team at Hornby is “pretty

full at the moment.”

Hornby and Selwyn police

youth aid officer Senior Constable

Bruce Ward welcomed the

announcement.

“It’s a big thing and I think

what you’ll see is a real proactive

approach because what we want

to do is prevent youth offending,”

Senior Constable Ward said.

He said the position was needed

because of the high rate of

youth and schools in the district

along with the youth offending

age set to increase.

“With the increase in [youth

offending] age to 17, their offending

will be dealt with youth

aid officers,” Senior Constable

Ward said.

“At the moment, if you’re 17,

you’re dealt with the district

court,” Senior Constable Ward

said.

That will increase the number

of cases handled by youth aid officers

by about 20 to 30 per cent,

he said.

Including 17-year-olds as

youth offenders is also “positive”

Senior Constable Ward said.

Many teenagers at that age are

enrolled in secondary schools,

he said.

“So you might have a stolen

car before that is stopped that

had three 16-year-olds and a

17-year-old, all going to the

same school,” Senior Constable

Ward said.

“The 16-year-olds will get

taken home and the 17-year-old

gets arrested. So now as soon as

you turn 18, you’re in the district

court.”

FAST FACTS:

DECISION: A

Selwyn youth

aid officer will

be based at

the Rolleston

Police Station

on Tennyson

St starting next

year. ​

teacher.

Why did you always want to

be a teacher?

I guess I had inspiring teachers

when I was a child, who had an

impact on my life and I decided I

wanted to leave that impact and

have that impact on others.

How have you found your

time teaching?

I’ve absolutely loved them

and hand on heart can say that

there has been only a handful of

days in an up to 30-year career

where I’ve not ever wanted to

go to work. I’ve just loved every

moment of it.

What have you learnt through

teaching?

That learning never stops and

just the impact of learning in

every aspect of your life. You

possibly initially think that

learning is only related to your

school years but you just know

it happens if you are taught to

learn rather than knowledge that

it will have an impact on you for

the rest of your life.

What would you say has been

the most rewarding part of

your career?

There’s been many things,

I’ve worked in quite a few

different schools. I have

worked in another school in

the North Island where I was

a foundation staff member

so that was exciting. I guess

connecting with people and

quite real connections, both with

colleagues and children and

their families, that would be the

most rewarding part.

How has teaching changed in

the time you’ve been doing it?

That’s an interesting question.

I’ve had this discussion with

colleagues because people have

said that it’s just got so busy and

that we are working long, long

hours. I’ve always worked like

that. But teaching for me has

never been a job, it’s always been

a lifestyle. And while it is long

and hard, it is rewarding. I’ve not

noticed the change but maybe it

has changed for other people.

How did you come to being

a foundation principal of this

school in Lincoln?

I’ve lived in Christchurch for

20 years and have been a deputy

principal of a large school for

a good portion of that time.

So I have worked with great

leaders in the past and been

involved in leadership but in

that second tier of leadership.

The opportunity came up and it

year.

was advertised. The establishing

board’s emerging vision for the

school and my philosophy of

education were really the perfect

match. They were brave enough

to appoint a first-time principal

to the role and it was just the

right thing and the right time for

me as well.

What was the large

school you were deputy

principal of?

I have been deputy principal

of both St Albans School and

Fendalton Open Air School.

What was the first school you

taught at?

My first school was Tawhai

School in Stokes Valley in Lower

Hutt.

How was that experience?

I think I was only 20-years-old.

I was probably very fresh-faced

and naive but had ideas of the

kind of teacher I wanted to be.

Did you go into teaching as

soon as you could after high

school?

I did. I went straight from

high school to university and

what was teachers college then.

I attended concurrently Victoria

University and Wellington

teachers college.

Did you grow up in the North

Island?

I did, in Lower Hutt in

Wellington.

What made you move to

Christchurch?

I moved to Christchurch in

1998 and I was flexible and just

thought I would love to have the

opportunity to live and work in

the South Island before I settled

somewhere permanently. And

then not long after moving here,

I met my husband Steve who is a

Cantabrian.

What do you live now?

I live in St Albans.

Do you think you will move

to Lincoln or somewhere else in

Selwyn?

Probably not. I will continue

to commute. Just because my

husband and children’s, Jacob,

15, and Eva, 13, lives are here.

They both go to Boys’ and

Girls’ High respectively and

my husband does the bulk of

his work as a builder over this

side of town. My whole family

are also avid beach people so

they surf and windsurf and

things and being in Selwyn

would make that just a little bit

trickier. I’m not surprised but

I have really enjoyed getting to

know more about the Lincoln

area and particularly where our

school is, it’s just beautiful. Just

feel so lucky to have a school in

such a gorgeous area but also

finding out about Lincoln and

the education fraternity always

talk about contextualising your

curriculum but I’ve known

that to be more true than this

setting because it’s the impact

of teaching in Lincoln has just

added a very special dimension

to our curriculum.

impact of learning

Have you ever taught

your own children?

So when I was at St

Albans School, we were

all at St Albans School

together. But I wasn’t a

classroom teacher there

I was what’s called a

walking deputy principal.

While I taught them in

various classes, I didn’t

ever have them in my own

class. I taught maths, or I

taught gifted and talented

programmes and they may

have been in the odd class

but I wasn’t a classroom

teacher as such.

What was it like on the

odd occasion to teach your

own children, was it a bit

strange?

Not really. It was really

nice for us all to be at the

same school.

Can you tell me a bit

about the new school

and when it is opening

officially?

So it will officially open

on February 5. The blessing

will take place on January

15, so we will be on-site

in the three weeks prior

to opening. It’s built for

450 students but with a

future capacity of 750, so

they will build another

block in the future if the

roll increases. The hall and

administration building

though are for a capacity of

750. It is modern learning

environments with spaces

designed for two or three

classes to work together

but complemented by

lovely breakout spaces,

kitchen and making and

art facilities... It’s got

two playgrounds and an

internal courtyard and

lots of landscaping with

vegetable gardens and a

wee orchard planned.

How many pupils are set

to attend next year?

It’s variable . . . but at

the moment we have 90

children expected on day

LEARNING: Claire Howison, pictured with her

daughter Eva, 13, and son Jacob, 15, has been

one. But I would imagine

that would get up to 100 by

February.

Can parents still enrol

their children?

Yes, so all our enrolment

procedures and links are

on our website http://

ararira.school.nz/.

What’s it been like being

a foundation principal?

It’s been an honour

really but I’ve also felt the

responsibility of it

. . . you’re not given a

blank canvas but you are

given the opportunity to

create something that fits

within the constraints of

the ministry’s systems but

is what you believe about

teaching and learning. And

that opportunity doesn’t

come up very often. The

easy option would have

been to have recreated

things that you know work

but we’ve tried to stay true

to the visions and values of

the school . . . everything is

centred around developing

caring, curious and capable

learners.

Can you tell me about

what you’ve been this

year?

We rented space off

Lincoln University so

we’ve been on Ellesmere

Junction Rd just down by

the football grounds. So the

year has been spent

just preparing and

working through the

ministry’s requirements for

opening a new school

. . . it’s also been

connecting with the

community, researching

and reading and just

establishing all the

documentation and

philosophy that underpins

great teaching and

learning.

What are you most

looking forward to when

the school opens?

Children. We’ve had

a year I guess without

children although some of

this term we have

spent getting to know

families.

What do you like doing

outside of work?

I’m an avid reader and

I also enjoy keeping fit I

Confidence in your Vehicle’s Safety

another baby was not one of

them.

Maybe that was a foolish assumption,

I don’t know, I’ve only

got the one kid remember.

What are you supposed to do

in that situation? And what is the

other parent supposed to do?

Is there a book on this?

On Tuesday I took Vittoria to a

Plunket playgroup in Papanui on

the advice of a fellow full-time

dad.

It was an enjoyable morning,

the sun was out and there was

plenty of toys and other kids for

Vittoria to play with.

During the course of her rambling

about exploring, she went

inside and sat next to another

wee lass, only a couple of months

younger than her who was playing

with a book.

So, naturally, she steals said

book off the poor kid.

The other baby’s mum was

really good about it, even told her

daughter to share.

However, Vittoria was not satisfied

with just taking her book.

Oh no, she started grabbing

anything this kid was holding,

ignoring my vain pleas for her to

desist or share.

VITTORIA

& Matt

ELEVATED: Vittoria getting a

unobstructed view of Mother

Goose and other classic floats

at the recent Santa Parade.

Eventually the other baby got

sick of Vittoria’s shtick and went

to grab her book back.

Vittoria promptly hit her in the

head with it.

I was mortified, I’d never seen

her hit anyone else before (she’s

hit me heaps, but not in anger).

The wee lass started crying

and I profusely apologised to the

mum and told Vittoria off – but I

don’t know if I did enough?

Vittoria’s had bigger kids do

similar to her and I didn’t know

what I should have done then

either. Other people’s kids seem

like a minefield topic.

Either way, I took Vittoria back

outside to where there were older

kids than her so she couldn’t

cause any more grief.

I suppose I’ll get better at this,

I really don’t think I want a bully

for a daughter, regardless of how

dang cute she is.

In a much nicer update, we

took Vittoria to the recent Santa

Parade in the city.

I’m stoked the old floats like

Mother Goose and the Haunted

House are still about. I haven’t

been to a parade in quite a few

years so it was cool to see the

old classics and share them with

Vittoria.

Subdividing attracts interest

District

councillor

Debra

Hasson

writes

about

subdivision

rules in the

District Plan

THE DISTRICT council is

undertaking a review of it’s

District Plan. Subdividing

always attracts a lot of interest

due to its capital gain.

Developing proposed subdivision

rules for public submission

is challenging. Generally,

the process requires council

to monitor trends, assessing

them against the principles

of the Resource Management

Act, to see if a zone needs to be

changed, created or protected.

So, what’s changed since the

last District Plan was adopted?

Urban growth patterns

Created by the Greater

Christchurch Urban Development

Strategy was forward

thinking. This agency, developed

an urban infrastructure

plan for future growth in and

around existing towns.

The February 22, 2011,

earthquake saw growth migrate

to Selwyn. Thankfully,

the strategy rezoned land

prior, meaning deferred zones

could be brought forward

and released for development.

The idea then allows suitable

adjacent land to be rezoned as

required.

Rural subdivisions

Envisaged 4ha inner plains

and 20ha outside.

However, a disparity allowing

outer plains landowners

owning 40ha plus to subdivide

a minimum 5000m 2 enabling

a dwelling and a no build

covenant over the remaining

19.5ha, retaining a residential

density of one house per 20ha,

has seen the same argument

for subdivision in the inner

plains enabling the creation of

1ha lots scattered throughout

both rural zones.

Purchasing a small

rural lifestyle block is popular

and the recent Selwyn

revaluation saw the average

capital value of these blocks

valued at $927,000 for rating

purposes.

This issue aside, over time

lifestyle blocks have also be

subjected to ongoing amenity

challenges.

For example, Christchurch

City’s industrial growth on

the boundary with Selwyn has

seen the erosion of the green

belt concept with only a thin

line of 4ha blocks remaining,

some divided by the new motorway

and I would be right

in suggesting the residents

of Prebbleton do not want

industrial-zoned land on their

doorstep.

And as zoned industrial

land is costed per square metre,

many businesses have

found the purchase of 4ha and

applying for a resource consent

a cheaper option however

when granted, often generate

complaints from neighbours.

As you can see rural subdivision

has more challenges

than urban.

Having my say on your

behalf, perhaps clearer zones

and rules would alleviate some

of these issues.

Fire rages, homes at risk

PROJECT: Dancing figure sculptures and the year 8 pupils with arts teacher.

School sculptures come alive

• By Emily O’Connell

A SIX-YEAR project, creating

23 life-sized dancing figure

sculptures, is coming to an end

at Rolleston School.

The project started in 2012

with the then year 2 pupils

drawing a picture of the class

dancing in a circle.

Teacher Jade Bell said when

reflecting on the drawings the

pupils identified there were a

number of things they needed

to learn in order to complete an

observational drawing.

“So we explored people dancing

through drawing and then it

moved onto photography, painting

and sculpture,” she said.

Six years on, the pupils are

now in year 8 and nine of their

sculptures have been finished

and will be placed in Rolleston

in the new year.

The remaining 14 sculptures

will be installed in the community

when they are completed,

which Miss Bell said is “an

ongoing process.”

She said the sculptures are

going to be installed in various

spots including Rolleston

Square, Rolleston dog park,

Brookside Park, the school

and outside New World Rolleston.

“I was notified last week that

four of our sculptures which

were designated for Rolleston

Reserve will need to find new

homes, as planning is under

way for the new Rolleston Town

Centre,” Miss Bell said.

Pupil Thomas Preston said

installing the sculptures will

mean a lot to the class.

“We have been working on it

for such a long time and it’s going

to be nice to share our work

with the community,” he said.

The finished pieces looked

“better than expected” to pupil

Sean Bennett, who said it was

great to be completing the

project.

For pupil Ashtyn Steele, the

sculptures reflects the school’s

values.

“I feel that there has been a lot

hard work gone into them and it

shows our school attributes, we

have been persistent and now we

are successful,” she said.

Rolleston Men’s Shed has been

helping the pupils create the

sculptures and Morgan and Pollard

will install them.

•Miss Bell would like to thank

FACILITY: Go Hororata gathering ideas for the new Hororata

Community Centre while visiting others in the district. ​

Ideas sought for

new Hororata centre

• By Emily O’Connell

A SPORTS floor, covered

outdoor area and a stage.

These are just a few of the

features which could be included

in the new $4.6 million Hororata

Community Centre.

A survey has been developed

for people to have their say on

what they would like to see included

in the centre.

It asks participants to rate

the importance of a number of

features such as having a lounge,

a duty manager and kitchen.

This will help Go Hororata,

the group behind the new centre,

develop conceptual plans.

Go Hororata is formed from

nine different community groups

and elected members of the

public.

The district council has included

the project in its Long Term

Plan, it is planned to be built on

Hororata Reserve in 2023/4.

It will be funded through a

mix of fundraising, development

contributions, insurance, other

funds and targeted rates.

Hororata senior station officer

Roger Parsons said he didn’t

have any “special” ideas for the

new centre but he will fill out the

survey and see what happens.

“I think there’s a group trying

to keep the old hall, take it back

to its original [state] and use it

for a museum . . . which would

be a good idea,” he said.

Mr Parsons believes the new

centre will be used more than

the hall as “it’s not very inviting

at the moment.”

Go Hororata chairman Dave

Sligh said Go Hororata is committed

to developing a multi-use

community centre which is an

asset to residents, the district

“and beyond.”

“It is important at this point

that all community groups and

businesses express their interest

in being involved in the project,”

he said.

Go Hororata has appointed

Octa Associates to work with

the community to develop a

detail brief for the community

centre and to engage with architects.

In October, the group visited

the Dunsandel, Greenpark, Tai

Tapu, Templeton, West Melton

and Glentunnel community

centres to gather ideas.

•To complete the survey,

on Sunday.

New safety vests keep

Weedons pupils safe

WEEDONS SCHOOL pupils

will be a lot safer when they

bike or walk to school thanks to

new safety vests provided by the

Selwyn Business Group.

The group provides a network

for small and medium-sized

businesses which support

other companies, charities

and community groups in the

district.

Providing safety vests for

Weedons School pupils was a

low-cost idea with a big impact.

It was suggested by Shona

Cottrell, who runs the sewing

school, Creative Edge Studio,

and has children at the school.

During her school runs, Mrs

Cottrell noticed many pupils

walking or biking around

high-speed rural roads who

were often not that visible to

motorists.

Principal Kathy Bell said the

school has a number of pupils

who catch buses to and from

school on busy roads and some

who cycle along 80-100km/h

roads. “The new shiny vests will

make them a lot more visible

and will be greatly appreciated

by these pupils and their

families,” she said.

Mrs Cottrell presented 25

vests at a school assembly and

said it was a great pleasure, as

Discover your backyard with our

100 days of summer

West Melton opening

This summer get out and enjoy what our district has to offer with our helpful list of activities to do

in the district over the summer.

Our 100 Days of Summer guide will be arriving in your letterbox this week. The activities range

from a perfect day for the thrill-seekers through to something for those just wanting to lounge

around in the sun.

Growing up in Darfield and now calling it home, Mayor Sam Broughton has spent many years

exploring Selwyn.

He sees this as a great chance to have a chat to friends and family about how to make the most

of down time around the holidays.

“This is a great chance to create memorable adventures around Selwyn this summer,” he says.

“It’s a magical district, with so much to see and do right on our own doorstep. I really hope people

get out and about and enjoy the great locations and activities around Selwyn.”

With ideas like going fishing, visiting some of the great summer spots, jumping on the

TranzAlpine, heading out to Darfield, Leeston and Chamberlains Ford, visiting a winery and

dozens more, there should never a day of head scratching – so residents should keep their 100

Days of Summer list handy.

Mayor Broughton says whether you’re new to Selwyn or have lived here for some time, he hopes

you use this guide as a tool to relive your favourite memories or create some new ones.

The 100 Day of Summer flyer should be arriving in letterboxes across the district this week.

There’s also a chance to win cool prizes by posting your adventures on Instagram of you trying

out one of our 100 Days of Summer activities. Just tag us at @sensationalselwyn and you’re in the

draw. If you’re not on Instagram flick your pictures through to competition@selwyn.govt.nz, we’ll

draw random winners throughout the summer and you can enter as many times as you like.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

A vehicle

crashed into the

maintenance

cupboard of

Snap Fitness

in Rolleston

Square, at noon

last Wednesday.

There was

nobody near

the cupboard

at the time. A

Snap Fitness

spokesman said

the sole occupant

of the vehicle,

a woman, was

uninjured from

the crash. He

was unsure what

caused the car to

hit the building. ​

Advertising Feature

Newest generation

well catered for

Lincoln University Childcare and Preschool

has now been around for 30 years and former

pupils could be bringing their own children

to experience what they had before.

It was opened in 1988 to provide education

and care for the children of families of the

staff and students of Lincoln University,

local research organisations and the Lincoln

community.

The centre has a separate under-two area

that allows the children to play and learn

in a safe and developmentally appropriate

environment.

New under-twos can now also get their first

month free.

All children have a primary caregiver who

is responsible for ensuring that children’s

individual needs are being met, for example

in feeding, settling in and feeling secure in the

centre. Having a primary caregiver enables

infants and toddlers to build a sense of trust

with the people who care for them.

The centre can take up to 12

children on the under-two side

to ensure providing care and

education of the highest quality.

The teachers all have extensive

training and experience in

working with children of this age

group.

Staff are observant and

responsive to children’s needs,

strengths and interests and

promote positive relationships

among children that promote

cooperative play.

They also employ good-quality individual

assessment and planning that helps teachers

respond to and build on children’s interest

and strengths.

Each child’s progress is recorded in their

profile books and their individual learning

programmes are recorded there too. Parents

are invited to contribute their knowledge and

ideas for the development of their children’s

learning opportunities.

Children have access to a wide range of

learning experiences that include individual,

small and large groups, based on Te Whāriki

(the Early Childhood curriculum).

Te Whāriki, expresses the centre’s

philosophy, supporting every child to be

confident and competent learners, strong

in their identity, language and culture, and

forming strong partnerships with families.

Marsupial of the bug world

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects and other

invertebrates). Each

week he introduces

a new species found

in his backyard at

Lincoln. His column

aims to raise public

awareness of

biodiversity, the

variety of living things

around us. Check

out the full list of

invertebrates found at

http://naturewatch.

org.nz/projects/

backyard-biodiversitybugs-in-lincoln

ROLY-POLY, pillbug and

wood louse are all names

used for the cosmopolitan

species Armadillidium

vulgare.

This introduced

invertebrate from Europe

rolls up to resemble a pill,

hence the common names.

Its genus name also gives

a clue to its plate-like form

used in its defence, much

like the armadillo.

Pillbugs can often be

confused with rough slaters

Porcellio scaber, however

the latter cannot roll up,

are flatter in appearance

BUG: Roly-poly, pillbug and wood louse are

all names used for the cosmopolitan species

Armadillidium vulgare.

and have appendages out

their rear end.

Pillbugs range in length

from 9 to 18mm when

mature, have a thorax

which consists of seven

segments, each with a pair

of legs. They live for two to

five years.

These unusual bugs

are nocturnal, so during

the day are usually found

under logs or dead plant

material so as not to desiccate.

They are detritivores,

playing an important

ecosystem service role of

breaking down organic

plant material to nitrogen,

potassium and phosphorus.

Females have a brooding

pouch called a marsupium

when they are pregnant.

Females can produce up to

three broods per year made

up of 100-200 eggs.

When the 0.5mm eggs

hatch, they remain in the

pouch for one to two weeks

feeding on marsupium

fluid.

This truly is the

marsupial of the bug

world.

Enrol now and get 4 weeks

of childcare for under-2s

Lincoln University Childcare & Preschool

offers a caring environment for children

aged 3 months – 5 years.

From January 2019, parents with under-2s not

previously enrolled at the centre can get their

first four weeks of childcare FREE.

Conditions

• You must book six 4.5-hour sessions

for the first four weeks

• Subject to availability

• No tie-in clause

• Offer starts from 14 January

Your child will enjoy a wide range of

learning experiences based on Te Whāriki

(the Early Childhood curriculum).

Prebbleton frustrated over Punivai decision

SPORTS

STAR: Prebbleton have lost out to Burnside in the pursuit of their

former junior player Isaiah Punivai for the 2019 senior rugby

season. ​

Young star opts to play for metro club

• By Gordon Findlater

PREBBLETON’S hope of

securing the services of one of

the country’s most promising

rugby prospects has been dashed

after they lost out to metro club

Burnside.

Isaiah Punivai made headlines

earlier in the year when he left

Christ’s College to take up a

scholarship with St Kentigern

College in east Auckland.

The 18-year-old played junior

rugby for Prebbleton.

The country club understood

Isaiah and his father, Vai, were

open to a potential return to his

former club due to it being their

centennial year.

However, Punivai has opted to

continue his development with

Burnside.

“You can’t limit your own

options so it [Prebbleton] was

something to look at, but I guess

what’s done is done now, my

next few years are already set,”

said Punivai.

“Burnside just kind of ticked

all the boxes for me.”

Prebbleton are disappointed to

miss out on the potential return

of possibly the most high-profile

junior player to come out of the

club.

“My understanding from

those discussions are that he was

keen and the family was keen

to have a year with us for our

centennial year,” said Prebbleton

coach Derek Todd.

“He’s a player that we were

really looking forward to having,

not just because of his ability, but

about promoting the pathways

that are available within our

club.”

Punivai is contracted to the

Crusaders academy.

It’s understood Prebbleton

were due to have a meeting with

Punivai following a meeting

between him and the academy.

“The outcome from that

meeting, as I understand it, is

that he was told he was playing

for Burnside,” said Todd.

“That’s fine, but why wasn’t

that offered to anyone else or

offered to us as his homegrown

club?”

“If we’re talking about country

rugby and development, here’s

a kid that could have done

wonders for our community.”

Punivai said he was not

pushed towards Burnside

by Canterbury Rugby or the

Crusaders Academy.

SUCCESS: Jack

Rodgers, Maia

Broughton and

Luke Barrett

show off their

medal haul

at the NZ

secondary

schools track

championships. ​

Selwyn club runners

bring home medals

A TRIO of Selwyn Athletics

Club members took out medals

at the recent New Zealand

secondary schools track

and field championships in

Dunedin.

The championships, held earlier

this month, were attended

by 1200 pupils from more than

200 schools.

Maia Broughton, who competed

for St Andrew’s College,

won two gold medals in the senior

girls 100m and 200m events.

The 16-year-old won the 100m

final by just 0.02sec in 12.39sec.

She followed the effort up in

the 200m with a winning time

of 22.19sec.

Jack Rodgers, competing

for Christchurch Boys’

High School, won gold in the

junior boys 400m, bronze in

the 100m and bronze in the

4x400m.

He also finished fifth in the

long jump with a new personal

best of 6.12m.

Rodgers’ win in the 400m was

emphatic, finishing in 52.30sec,

nearly 2sec clear of his nearest

rival.

Behind Rodgers was Rolleston

College’s Luke Barrett who took

silver in a time of 54.24sec.

All three athletes are coached

by former Commonwealth

Games runner Bev Peterson.

Beatty’s hat-trick doesn’t

stop Leeston-Southbridge

•From page 1

“It pitched on middle and hit

the top of off stump, so it was

almost the perfect delivery. It

was pretty exciting, really,” said

Beatty.

He came into his hat-trick on

on the back of being walloped

for two sixes by Leeston-

Southbridge’s Ben Donkers.

“It wasn’t ideal but he got out

the following over. For my next

over I was just trying to bowl

yorker length and had a field set

for it,” said Beatty, who is also the

club’s president.

Earlier Beatty also claimed the

wicket of Toby Doyle to finish

with 4/22 from his four overs.

However, Beatty’s remarkable

spell wasn’t enough to get his side

across the line against Leeston-

Southbridge.

Their 95-run win means

Leeston-Southbridge keep

their place at the top of the

competition.

After two wins on the opening

day of the competition, Leeston-

ATTACK: Ben Donkers scored

45 from just 19 deliveries for

Leeston-Southbridge.

Southbridge suffered their first

loss on Saturday morning at

Dudley Park, going down by

seven wickets to Cheviot.

Cheviot reached their target of

96 with just one ball remaining.

But Leeston-Southbridge

bounced back in their second

match of the day against

Darfield.

Batting first, Leeston-

Southbridge made 157/7. The

charge was led by Donkers – who

has returned home from Otago

University – and Chris Beatson.

Donkers, batting at No 3,

scored 45 from just 19 deliveries.

His knock included five sixes and

two fours.

Beatson, batting at No 5, then

steered the innings home with an

unbeaten 46 off 31.

The hat-trick was the only

highlight for Darfield as they

were bowled out for 62 in the

19th over.

Earlier in the day, they lost to

Sefton on the final ball of the

match.

Sefton scored a boundary,

needing three runs from the last

delivery.

Motoring

• By Ross Kiddie

MY WIFE will tell you I’m not a

big fan of supermarkets, and she

is right, I see them as a necessary

evil.

However, there is one thing

that I find favour with, and that is

when it comes to pay, the item is

scanned through the barcode and

that is what it costs.

It should be that simple when it

comes to buying cars – one price,

no discounts, what you see on the

price tag is what you pay.

Honda has utilised that price

promise concept for several years,

and it’s been very successful for

the company, people rock up and

there is no need to talk turkey

over the price.

Toyota, too, have just incorporated

that method of selling and

judging by recent sales figures it’s

keeping Toyota in a comfortable

position as the end-of-year sales

figures roll in.

Toyota’s success this year has

also been buoyed by the arrival

of a new Corolla, a car which

doesn’t look that much different

to that of the previous generation,

but underneath it has had some

significant changes for comfort,

safety and driveability.

The Corolla lands with a choice

of five different models, two of

those are hybrid. Regular readers

will recall my hybrid evaluation

at the beginning of last month,

and it served to convince me that

hybrids are a viable future as we

head into the electric revolution.

However, this evaluation surrounds

the mid-spec SX model

which has a traditional power

plant, a 2-litre four-cylinder

petrol engine. Gone is the 1.8-litre

unit of the previous generation;

in the name of progress, the new

power plant is more refined than

before, has more power and marginally

greater fuel economy.

Toyota rates the new engine

with 125kW at the top end and

200Nm of torque, up 21 per cent

and 15 per cent respectively. The

points of delivery are quite tall

in the rev band – 6600rpm and

4800rpm, however, such are the

overall outputs there is still a

broad spread of power. Take into

account as well, the engine drives

through a paddle-shift continuously

variable transmission which

is stepped through 10 points,

which means the engine isn’t

loaded.

Together there is good harmony

and fluid response to accelerator

input. The engine feels quite zingy

and strong, it works the rev band

freely and, I guess, you’d expect

nothing less, Toyota has built millions

of Corolla engines and I’d be

surprised if it didn’t feel right.

It is also an engine which is

light on fuel use. That’s a necessary

criteria in these days of wayward

fuel prices. Toyota claims

a six-litre per 100km (47mpg)

combined cycle average, which

sits well with the fuel usage readout

in the test car. It was showing

a constant 7.2l/100km (39mpg)

• Price – Toyota Corolla SX,

$32,490

• Dimensions – Length,

4652mm; width, 1843mm;

height, 1697mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

Nothing has changed in Corolla – except everything

TOYOTA COROLLA SX: No-haggle price of $32,490

SELWYN TIMES

Fire rages, homes at risk

during a mix of pre-Christmas

inner-city driving and a Port Hills

loop. At 100km/h the engine

is working over slowly at just

1500rpm, returning an instantaneous

fuel usage consumption of

just 4.5l/100km (63mpg).

My wife had a work Christmas

function to attend in Barrys Bay,

so the Corolla was used to travel

to that event.

The Christchurch/Akaroa

Highway isn’t my favourite piece

of road given the volume of traffic,

but the Corolla responded

well on the few overtaking

opportunities that presented

themselves. An overtaking time

of 6.8sec is possible (80km/h-

120km/h), while from a standstill

it will also launch to 100km/h in

9.2sec.

Those figures give you some

indication of its zest and ability. It

also handles nicely with beautiful

steering and strong steering

feedback. That’s no surprise,

over the years Corollas destined

for our market have had chassis

engineering developed for our

roads and that certainly showed

on the twists and turns of the

Akaora hill.

Add in the development

work Toyota has done with the

chassis in the latest generation

car and you have a dynamic

handling vehicle, one which

belies its role as a mainstream

hatchback.

Elsewhere, the Corolla stands

out for its quality of build and

high amount of fitment. At the

new no-haggle price of $32,490,

the SX includes all the features

you need for convenience and, of

course, comfort has been a high

manufacturing priority.

On the subject of prices, an

entry-level base model Corolla

is available for $29,990, and that

would be the car for me, but if

you want all the bells and whistles

then the ZR at $37,490 is also

there to tempt.

According to Toyota’s

advertising slogan, nothing has

changed for the new generation

Corolla – except everything. Sure,

it looks like the Corolla we have

come to know and love, and it

certainly drives like a Corolla

should, the only thing is that it is

much better in every respect.

Fire rages, homes at risk

DIVERSE: It’s time to harvest summer salad vegetables. (Centre and below) – Flowering annuals should be providing a wealth of colour. Only irrigate your lawn in

cooler temperatures.

Control the growth in your garden

SUMMER IS here. It’s a hugely

busy time in the garden with

vigorous growth on most plants,

harvesting of early maturing

summer vegetables and preparing

the garden if you are planning on

heading away.

Vege garden

Summer salad vegetables will

be maturing mid/late December.

Regularly apply side dressings of

fertiliser to enhance the growth of

these plants. With quick maturing

crops such as radishes, dwarf

beans and lettuce, use succession

planting (every two to three

weeks) to avoid them all maturing

at the same time and ensuring

you have a constant supply.

Plan you watering or irrigation

programme to encourage strong

plant growth while avoiding

wasting any water. Apply mulch

to reduce water loss and help prevent

weed growth. Early planted

potatoes should be ready to be

harvested for Christmas Day.

Continue to remove the lateral

growth on your tomato plants

until they reach around 1m, and

tie up to stakes at regular points

(every 100–150mm).

Summer flowers

With little effort, summer

annuals can provide masses of

colour and beauty in the garden

or containers. Summer flowers

include; ageratum, cornflower,

cosmos, marigolds, petunias,

portulacas, salvias, strawflowers

and zinnias. Deadhead old finished

flowers to encourage more

flowering.

Fruit trees

Early stone fruit such as plums

start to ripen towards the end

of the month. You may need to

remove some excess new growth

and thin laden bunches of fruit

to help promote heavy cropping.

Water newly planted fruit trees

and mulch as soils begin to dry.

Berries and strawberries

Boysenberries, blackcurrants,

gooseberries and raspberries can

be harvested in late December.

They will be developing new

canes that should be tied down

or removed when there is

excessive growth.

It’s a great month for harvesting

strawberries. Protect plants

with bird netting so they don’t

eat the fruit before you do. Place

pea straw or crushed bark around

plants so fruit are sitting on a

‘clean bed’. Water as required and

with the minimum of maintenance

you should be harvesting

delicious, juicy strawberries well

into January.

Roses

It’s an excellent month for rose

before the difficult months of

January and February. It’s important

to continue to deadhead finished

flowers to encourage more

blooms. Apply regular side dressings

of rose fertiliser to encourage

strong healthy growth. Carry out

summer pruning to promote further

flowering. Inspect your roses

regularly for signs of blackspot

and rust and instigate a regular

spraying programme to control

these diseases.

Lawns

Depending on specific summer

weather conditions, lawns

should either be in peak condition

or beginning to dry out.

Avoid mowing too low over hot

summer months and do not

apply fertiliser. If water supply allows,

irrigate lawns in the cooler

parts of the day. If you have

bare patches appearing, you will

need to be patient and wait until

TASTE: Late December is the

normal time to be picking

berries.

autumn before carrying out any

repair work.

Preparing the garden for

summer holidays

Because we traditionally

holiday in the Christmas/January

period, “deserting” the garden at

this time can lead to problems.

It’s better to plan ahead and be

prepared. Avoid problems by not

having your vegetable crops maturing

during this time, applying

a good layer of mulch and installing

a timer or asking a neighbour

to water your garden while you

are away. This is especially important

with plants in containers.

Have a blooming fantastic

Christmas and enjoy the holidays.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

It was the firs time Mr Garth

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

The preparation for this year’s

Mr Garth, who has b en a

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

Elite Meats owner Corey

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

The preparation for this

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

“Those guys over there

Exquisitely designed 5 bedrooms & 4 car garaging!

If you’ve been looking for a property that oozes style &

sophistication yet has been carefully thought out to cater for

all your day to day needs, with so many extra’s that will leave

you wanting for nothing more… then you’ll be excited you have

finally found just that home! From the street, you’d be forgiven

for thinking this home merely has a double garage, but once

inside you’ll be overwhelmed to see an oversized 4 car tandem

garage with drive through & additional workshop space, plus

it’s also carpeted with a pull-down ladder for attic storage – a

second ladder also in the hallway. This stunning 339m 2 home

offers a large open plan living space with skylights & plenty of

sliding doors to let the light stream in & enjoys seamless flow to

the two outdoor deck areas & expansive lawn – an entertainer’s

haven on 1076m 2 . You’ll love the central designer kitchen, with

stone bench tops, double fridge space, twin wall ovens, 90cm

cooktop & WIP with sink. A ducted heat pump/air con system

& log burner caters for all year around comfort, & under tile

heating in the bathrooms. The separate lounge with cathedral

ceiling is an intimately special space. Heading down the wide

hallway, you’ll find a large separate laundry with impressive

storage, a separate toilet with basin, walk-in storage & 4 large

double bedrooms – master having a WIR & tiled en-suite and

access to the deck. The smaller 5th bedroom is located at the

front of the home off the entrance, perfect for those who may

wish to use it as a home office. We know you’re tempted!

This Christmas we are

offering you the gift of a

Self-Sustaining Income

and Growth Opportunity

Kip McGrath Education Centre, Selwyn District, Canterbury

20 years ago my husband Mark

Larson and I (Anne Larson)

discovered an opportunity to use

our teaching skills to help students

whose learning needs were not met

well by mainstream education. We

bought a Kip McGrath Centre and

gave up the classroom for one to

one individualized tuition. This was

the start of our journey of personal

and professional fulfillment

through making a real difference

for students.

Kip McGrath understood that every

child learns differently and developed

a methodology to help children to

catch up and keep up in the core areas

of English and Maths. Now, more than

40 years later, Kip McGrath Education

Centres continues to tutor primary and

secondary students all over the world to

help them reach their full potential.

Early in our journey as the business

evolved quickly our daughter Mel joined

the team. We were all very passionate

about providing meaningful and

successful engagement with learning

for all students. We have been family

owned and operated ever since. 5 years

ago we became local as well when we

started a new centre in Lincoln.

As a tuition provider we have found

such a wide range of people that needed

and benefited from our tuition services.

We have enjoyed challenging extension

learners, providing second learning

opportunities for adult students and

uncovering New Zealand curriculum

to Bi Lingual Students. We have found

the potential in at -risk alternative

education students. We have created

long standing relationships with

students who perform best with

ongoing support through their school

life. Some students we have worked

with for 5 or 6 years. One of the most

rewarding things on this 20 year journey

has been working with students who

have never done well at school who

experience academic success for the

first time.

One of our students began working with

us 18 months ago. At the start he had a

reading age of 10 years old even though

he was almost 16. Over 12 months of

tuition he raised his reading age to 15

years with 100 percent comprehension

understanding. He has just completed

NCEA Level 1 which would not have

been possible without this help. His

mum’s emotional reaction was worth

every minute of hard work.

We have loved the quality lifestyle we

have by being Centre owners as well.

We have had the flexibility to pursue

more than just work at the centre and

have a balanced work and home life.

My husband Mark has been Principal

of a large school while we have been

in business and continues now in

high profile education work. I have

continued to have a full and busy

family life while running the centre.

We have 11 grandchildren now that I

still have time to read with everyday

and frequently babysit. An enormous

challenge for us was our 35 year old

daughter’s battle with cancer. We

were able to take care of her at home

and help her husband and their four

children intensively over the 7 months

she was ill. We were enormously

grateful that we could adjust our

schedule to take time to grieve when

we lost her.

Big News for us! We have decided after 20 years in successful business with Kip McGrath that it is time

to sell the centre so another passionate teacher has an opportunity to make a difference. Anne and the

teaching team will stay on when the centre sells so there will be no disruptive changes for students and

their families. We will keep you all updated throughout as we look for just the right person to sell to.

In the last two years since we lost our daughter, we have been ticking

over with an existing data base, without marketing it to its full capacity.

We would love to herar from a qualified teacher, who wishes to step out

of the current Education System and take charge of your own destiny,

add your own creativity and take advantage of the current growth in the

Selwyn area.

The hours are flexible and students are allowed time off school to attend.

Kip McGrath provide all the training and support you need and has a

supportive business community throughout Canterbury.

This business includes all the business tools and teaching components.

There is the added opportunity of retaining myself and another teacher

as tutors that would ensure “Business as Usual” to maintain minimal

disruption to our students.

We will take good care of finding the right person to sell to as we wish

the centre to continue to contribute to our Communities future.

We have handed over to Hannah McGowan from Harcourts Gold to

market this opportunity. Hannah is well experienced in sales, finance

and business operations.

This is a business opportunity not to be missed and a

great way to kick start your new year.

The business must sell before the new school year.

All offers will be presented.

Choose a house design

before finalising the section.

the right

section

for you

Aim for a sunny yard.

Orienting a home towards the sun is

critical when building for guaranteeing

a warmer brighter home while adding

value to the property.

Before finalising the purchase of a

section, sort out the basics of the house

design you want and check it will work

on that piece of land. Visit showhomes

and look at how they are sited and talk

to building company consultants, your

architectural designer or architect.

Weigh up where you want the sun to

be at different times of the day. Once,

kitchens and living areas were located

on the cooler side of a home due to the

coal range burning most of the day,

which kept the home warm. Today,

we look to the sun for that extra free

heating so having sun in the rooms we

use throughout the day is an advantage.

For example, a sunny dining area around

breakfast can be a nice way to start the

day while warmth in living areas midmorning

to late afternoon and sunny

bedrooms later in the day can be ideal.

With many sections there is a trade-off

where some rooms may not get much

sun. If possible position service areas

like the kitchen, bathrooms, toilets and

laundry on the south and southeast.

Having a street view depends on

personal taste while a sunny yard for

outdoor living with some protection

from prevailing nor’ westerly or easterly

winds are also good aims. From the

outset, work with your consultant or

designer so you end up with the best

possible design for your section and

living needs.

If building in a new housing estate

its covenants will need to be observed.

These rules state what is acceptable to

the developer in keeping with the vision

and standard for the subdivision. Some

covenants are quite specific stating

the type of cladding that can be used,

acceptable roof pitch, and other design

features, especially where they face the

street. The types of materials and colours

that can be used might also be required

and a landscaping plan for the front yard

expected.

All details need to be provided to the

subdivision developer and signed off,

before the build starts. It is therefore best

to address this before lodging building

consent, in case critical changes need to

be made to the design or materials. A

bond is also often required to be lodged

as protection against any damage to the

roadside curbing and other aspects of the

estate so factor this into your budget.

The Selwyn District Council often

requires a Geotech and soil test reports

are included with any building consent

application. If building in a new subdivision,

talk to your developer’s

representative as these may already be

available. Of course, a due diligence

check by you and your lawyer before

purchasing any block of dirt will help

avoid any issues.

Having a street view

depends on personal taste.
