Police warn speeding drivers

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DRIVERS CAUGHT speeding

in the east are, on average,

travelling 15-20km/h over the

speed limit – and police say it has

to stop.

Police issued 12 speeding

tickets during four checkpoint

operations it carried out leading

up to Christmas.

They will be continuing to run

checkpoints in the eastern suburbs

to crack down on the “fatal

five” driving offences, which are

using a mobile phone while driving,

dangerous manoeuvres, not

wearing a seat belt, drink

driving and speeding.

Sergeant Jim Currie said

police want to continue reinforcing

the message that these offences

cause a lot of crashes and

damage.

“We want to reduce that and

make people safer on the roads,”

he said.

During the roading

initiative launched during the

Christmas season, police carried

out checkpoints on Cuthberts

Rd, Rothesay Rd near Burwood

Hospital, Mairehau Rd and

Avondale Rd.

Seven speeding tickets were

issued on Cuthberts Rd, three

on Rothesay Rd and two on

Avondale Rd.

Petition launched to save bank

News

Now

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PETITION has been launched

in a bid to stop Kiwibank closing

its branch at Eastgate Shopping

Centre.

More than 1300 people have

signed the petition, which will be

put to Kiwibank chief executive

Steve Jurkovich

and chairwoman

of the

board Susan

Macken before

the closure on

January 30.

It was

Jackie Simons

launched by

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson, city councillor Yani

Johanson and Woolston Community

Association chairwoman

Jackie Simons.

New Zealand Post, which is a

joint operation with Kiwibank,

will also close on January 30.

But NZ Post is still planning to

provide postal and bill payment

services in Eastgate through an

agency.

Head of retail Mark Yagmich

said it is working on shifting

postal services to another local

business and hopes to be able to

announce who the operator will

be later this month.

The Kiwibank closure comes

three months after Environment

CHANGE: Eastgate Shopping Centre’s Kiwibank and New

Zealand Post branch will close at the end of the month, but

postal services are planned for another agency.

Canterbury reduced its bus services

in Linwood. Environment

Canterbury replaced the 535 bus

route with a shopper service.

The 155 service runs three

times a day, Monday to Friday,

and is on trial for 12 months.

The closure of Kiwibank has

been described as “one more

frustrating thing” for residents

living in the area.

Ms Simons said the closure of

Kiwibank is “just ridiculous” as

it is the third branch in the area

to close.

Kiwibank has previously

closed its branches on Stanmore

Rd and in Woolston.

Said Ms Simons: “We have

just had a load of bus cuts in the

Linwood-Bromley area . . . it is

just one more frustrating thing

for people who don’t have the

same necessary advantages other

people do,” she said.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said the closure was “death by

a thousand cuts” and a petition

was one way of expressing community

concern.

“It is absolutely heartbreaking

to see the corporate approach

they are taking at the expense of

the community,” he said.

Kiwibank announced in November

it would open a standalone

branch in Papanui on February

1 and withdraw services

from Eastgate and Merivale.

A Kiwibank spokeswoman

said the way its customers access

banking services has changed

dramatically over the past 17

years. Less than 10 per cent

of Kiwibank’s service transactions

now occurs in its physical

network.

The nearest banking service is

at The Palms Kiwibank, which is

5km away.

Ms Dyson said it was a terrible

time of the year to be launching

the petition, but it was “fantastic”

to have got more than 1300

signatures.

Westpac provides the other

banking service at Eastgate.

KITCHEN FIRES

Cooking left unattended has

been the cause of several fires

in the New Brighton area.

The Anzac Fire Station was

called to extinguish a kitchen

fire on Keyes Rd and Bridge

St last week. Senior station

officer Shane O’Brien said it is

reminding people not to leave

their cooking unattended and

to always have working smoke

alarms. He said the Keyes Rd

property sustained damage to

the walls and smoke damage

to the house while the Bridge

St property had light smoke

damage.

BROAD PARK FLYING FOX

The slide at Broad Park in

Waimairi Beach will be replaced

next month. The slide was

removed in October by the

city council after it had begun

to rust. The park’s flying fox

platform was also removed

after it had deteriorated beyond

repair. City council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge said

a date for the reinstallment of

the flying fox cannot be set as

the design and orientation of

it is yet to be confirmed. It is

anticipated the replacement will

cost $30,000 and $12,000 for the

new slide.

Founder of Eldernet recognised

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TWENTY-TWO years ago

Eleanor Bodger established

Eldernet to help people reaching

their twilight years make some

of the biggest decisions in their

life.

Now the 66-year-old New

Brighton woman has been recognised

with a Companion of

the New Zealand Order of Merit

Award for services to seniors in

the New Year Honours List.

“One of the things that people

commonly think about ageing

is by the time you get older you

have made the biggest decisions

in your life. But an actual fact

that is not true,” she said.

In the 90s, information to help

older people and their families

make informed decisions during

some of the most crucial moments

in their life was hard to

come by, Ms Bodger said.

In 1997, when the internet was

just beginning to take off, she

took an opportunity to create

the online comprehensive information

service Eldernet.

Each month the online database

has millions of hits.

It provides directories of rest

home and retirement villages,

home help services, and lifestyle

information broadly covering

travel, technology, and financial

assistance.

Ms Bodger said she was “absolutely

flabbergasted” to receive

the award.

“Once I got over being

flabbergasted I was so thrilled

and honoured that the work

we have been doing for a long

time I guess has been found to

be useful to people,” Ms Bodger

said.

It was during the February

CARING:

Founder of online

comprehensive

information

service Eldernet

Eleanor Bodger

has been

recognised in

the New Year

Honours List.

22, 2011, earthquake Eldernet

commissioned a report into the

aged-care sector response to the

emergency.

“In terms of that broader

stuff, of course, older people

were significantly affected and

many died before they saw their

issues addressed with their own

home,” Ms Bodger said.

But she said many older

people living in rest homes were

more concerned about what

was happening with staff, their

families and children.

“I think that was maybe part

of the ageing process of having

that really generalist and much

more universal view of life.”

Ms Bodger’s first introduction

to the aged care sector was when

she started working as a nurse at

Nurse Maude in the late 1970s.

From there, she delved into

social and community work and

has since had many highlights

in her career.

She helped establish the

Linwood Community Resource

Centre and co-created the

annual LYFE (Linwood Youth

Festival Experience).

LYFE is a not-for-profit event

celebrating youth diversity and

achievement in the Linwood

community.

“I love meeting people and

I guess the highlight for me

is with the elder network we

can be on the road up to three

months of the year going

around the country,” she said.

Musician, historian and

author receives honour

WOOLSTON resident Edward

Bohan has also been recognised

in the New Year Honours list.

He was made a Member of the

New Zealand Order of Merit

for services to music, historical

research and literature.

Mr Bohan has made

significant contributions as a

singer since the 1960s and as a

historian and author from the

1970s.

He established his career as a

singer in the United Kingdom

between 1964 and 1987

and developed an extensive

repertoire of more than 170

choral, orchestral, and operatic

works before returning to New

Zealand.

Mr Bohan has since

performed with the Canterbury

Opera, Wellington City Opera

and the State Opera of South

Australia.

He has sung regularly with

the New Zealand Symphony

Orchestra and Concert FM for

Radio New Zealand and has

performed without charge at

various community and charity

events.

Mr Bohan was a member of

the artistic panel of Canterbury

Opera and has been influential

in the career development of

other high profile New Zealand

opera singers.

He has authored biographies,

histories and historical fiction

and has published 18 books,

including the biographies

Edward Stafford, New Zealand’s

First Statesman (1994) and To Be

a Hero: A biography of Sir George

Grey (1998), which were both

finalists in the Montana Book

Awards.

Mr Bohan’s other works

include a series of historical

detective novels featuring

Inspector Patrick O’Rorke,

the most recent of which was

published in 2017.

Praise for Pukeko Centre

VOLUNTEERS AT Pukeko

Centre will know on Sunday

if they have been named the

finalists in the Mitre 10 New

Zealand Community of the Year

Award.

The community-led development

has been named as a semifinalist

in the national award

recognising people who use their

passion to make the country a

better place.

The Pukeko Centre is a multiuse

sports and recreation facility

formed from a joint venture

between the Parklands Bowling

Club and the Parklands Junior

Rugby Club.

The clubs joined forces to build

the facility after being badly affected

by the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

For five years the project has

been driven by a small, committed

team of volunteers from the

Parklands community led by

Pukeko Centre chairman Maurice

Lawlor.

He said he could not begin to

calculate the number of volunteer

hours that have gone into

making this vision a reality.

“To make it into the top 10

out of 231 nominations for this

prestigious award is a real pat on

the back for all involved.”

The award is part of the New

Zealander of the Year Awards

EXCITING DEVELOPMENT: The opening of stage one of the

Pukeko Centre in February last year. (From left) – Parklands

which recognises people across

the country for their hard work.

The first stage of the centre

opened last year and consists of

a clubroom and pavilion, which

is located on the grounds of the

Parklands Bowling Club.

For five years the project has

been driven by a small, committed

team of volunteers from the

Parklands community led by Mr

Lawlor.

The building utilises the buildings

from the former Freeville

School.

The Pūkeko Centre not only

serves as a home base for the

founding clubs but will provide

much-needed sports and recreation

facilities for other clubs and

organisations.

Fundraising efforts are now

under way for the 1.2 million

required to progress stage 2 – a

full-sized hall for indoor sports,

performances and events.

“Most of them didn’t try to

Drivers caught speeding

10km/h or less over the limit

The highest speed over

the limit recorded by police

in a 50km/h zone on Avondale

“We got them on a laser and

they must have seen us and

we are always prepared for

that,” Sergeant Currie said.

stopped them and issued a

notice.

“They gave the excuse they

LOWER SPEED limits could be

on the horizon to make way for the

new Shirley Boys’ and Avonside

Girls’ High School.

The city council has opened for

submissions on a proposal that

would see a 40km/h school speed

zone on Travis Rd and Bower Ave.

It is also open for public

feedback on reducing the

permanent speed limit on

Frosts Rd from 70km/h to

50km/h.

The changes are in preparation

for the increased

volume of all road users in

the QE II Park area when

the school opens on April

29.

Sergeant Jim Currie said he

recommended lowering the speed

limit on Frosts Rd during a recent

meeting with the city council and

schools.

“Police are very supportive of

reducing the speed limit to make

it safer . . . especially with a lot

of kids using the cycleway along

Travis Rd,” he said.

The school speed zones would

operate Monday-Friday for no

more than 35min in the morning

and 20min in the afternoon.

The times would be aligned to

the school’s start and finish times,

once these are confirmed.

while he was comfortable with a

the school, he was “a bit ambivalent”

about the proposed speed

“I would prefer to see

Grant brings sports hub one step closer

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE PLAN to turn Rawhiti

Domain into a sports hub has

taken another step forward as

progress is made on funding

to upgrade the New Brighton

Rugby Football Club.

The Rata Foundation has

granted $200,000 towards the

reconfiguration of the rugby

clubrooms, originally built in

1951.

The project coincides

with the Eastern Community

Sports and Recreation’s 10-year

plan to open an all-weather $2.2

million sports facility at the

domain.

The trust was established in

2008 to bring New Brighton

sports clubs together and is

driving the upgrade of the rugby

clubrooms.

But Eastern Community

Sports and Recreation Inc board

member Wayne Turner said the

grant is subject to securing the

rest of the funding to allow the

work to go ahead.

The upgrade of the clubrooms

will cost $350,000 – leaving the

club with an additional $150,000

to find.

Mr Turner said it is currently

seeking funding from other

trusts, and it is hopeful it will

have it secured by the end of

February.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

It is also in discussion with the

city council over the building

consent process.

But Mr Turner said he was

uncertain how long that process

would take.

The upgrade will include

replacing the roof, relocating

the kitchen upstairs, refitting

the downstairs lounge, and

adding two new changing

rooms.

The club will also be

rebranded to Eastern

Community Sports and

Recreation.

In August, a city council

hearings panel decided to lease

3881 sq m of land of the domain

to allow the trust to upgrade

four tennis courts, and build a

canopy with lighting over three

of the courts.

Trust chairman Peter Burley

said it able is to move forward

with the plans after securing

funding from the Lottery Grants

Board, Rata Foundation and

the New Zealand Community

Trust.

“That gives us enough to

start the project and fully

purchase the canopy and start

finalising the geotech and other

components,” he said.

The canopy is set to cost $1.2

million and the trust currently

has $1.05 million.

Well-known Avon Rowing

Club member will be missed

• Matt Slaughter

THE AVON Rowing Club

community is mourning

the death of one of its

longest-serving members.

Ray Flanagan, who was

known as Charlie, died

unexpectedly at home aged

72.

Mr Flanagan had been a

member of the club since

1967 and was successful on

the water as a competitor

and off it as a coach.

He went through the

grades and was a member

of the club’s winning junior

eight in 1971.

Mr Flanagan then went

on to win the champion

eight competition at

Karapiro in 1976.

He rowed competitively

until 1991 before turning

his attention to coaching.

Close friend and fellow

club member, Warren

Blazey, said Mr Flanagan

helped to make Avon a

great rowing club on and

off the water.

“He’s been a tireless

worker and a life member.”

Mr Blazey said Mr

Flanagan was “cheerful and

charming” and “always had

a good laugh.”

His life was celebrated

at a service at St Mary’s

Cathedral on Friday.

A post on the Canterbury

Rowing Association’s

Facebook page said Mr

CHAMPION:

Ray Flanagan

(left), Warren

Blazey

and Dave

Husband

at the Avon

Rowing Club.

Flanagan led a number

of rowing teams to great

results.

“He produced many

championship results in all

classes of boats. A record

any coach would be proud

of.”

His coaching success at

club level led to further

success on the international

stage.

He coached the New

Zealand university eight

in 1997 and 1998. Then in

1999, he coached the New

Zealand junior eight in

Bulgaria.

The team recorded

the fastest time ever by

a New Zealand junior

crew.

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

Stalling claim denied by ECan

Pensioners

still fighting

for bus stop

• Matt Slaughter

RESIDENTS AT the Diana Isaac

Retirement Village in Mairehau

say Environment Canterbury is

putting off their next meeting to

discuss new bus route options.

Rest home resident Graham

Tate said he believes ECan has

been stalling and past meetings

had not produced a solution.

“They made

a promise that

they would give

us an accessible

bus and they

haven’t kept that

promise.”

An

spokesperson

said this was not the case.

“We are not stalling on any

decision, it will take time to work

through the process and we are

still in the stage of working with

(city council), Ryman Healthcare

and Diana Isaac residents to

explore suitable and sustainable

solutions.”

As of the last week, the Orbiter

bus service no longer goes along

Philpotts Rd, leaving residents

with very few nearby public

transport options.

Residents have been fighting

since March to have the No 44

bus route adjusted so it would

stop at the village.

Mr Tate said he had

emailed ECan after the last

meeting in December to inquire

about the next meeting date, but

nothing had been confirmed yet.

He said one of his main

concerns with the delay was

some residents had reached

an age where driving was

difficult.

In spite of this, Mr Tate said

even some of the village’s most

elderly residents now felt their

only option was to get behind the

wheel.

“People are independent, even

though they’re old, but there’s a

weren’t.”

The ECan spokesperson said

they did not know how long it

would be until a decision on a

new route would be made.

“At this stage, there is not

a set timeframe, as it will be

dependent on what any potential

solution looks like.” ECan

would not comment on the

inconveniences and risks facing

rest home residents now that

QE II tops

‘code

brown’ list

EVEN THOUGH it has only been

QE II Recreation and Sport

Centre took out the ‘most poops’

title with 71 code browns last year.

However, in defence of the new

Due to its popularity, QE II

implemented a one-in, one-out

policy on 30 occasions last year

when it reached maximum

capacity.

City council head of recreation

sports and events Nigel Cox said

QE II had the most closures due

to the significant number of

young swimmers who use the

facility. It also experienced about

33 vomiting incidents.

The city council provides tips

on its website on how to ensure its

pools stay open, offering pointers

for parents and caregivers who

should take extra care when

accompanying a child to the pool.

City council staff were kept busy

last year with 167 ‘code browns’

about how

Regenerate

Christchurch’s plan may

impact the area and how

residents were unaware of

the red zone music event

recently

I FEEL A SUBTLE shift

happening in my community.

Dallington was hard hit by the

earthquakes, losing 55 per cent

of homes after the red-zoning.

Slowly the houses were replaced

by a weird in-between

space that has now become a

lovely riverside park.

It’s starting to feel like we are

moving on.

We’ve been hunkered down for

years but now we are starting to

think about what comes next.

Understandably, some locals

are concerned about what “next”

looks like.

Regenerate Christchurch

recently released its draft Regeneration

Plan for the area.

It’s a fairly high-level imagining

of the future, but it gives us

some ideas about what we might

look forward to.

I suspect it will be a long time

before we see much more than

stopbanks and stormwater treatment.

In the meantime, the 600ha

red zone park that surrounds us

has been enjoyed by a variety of

groups holding events and developing

transitional use projects.

There is a sense of action and

activity in the red zone that

wasn’t there before.

And I think most locals would

agree that this is great for our

community.

We want people to make use

of the green space around us,

but ask that they do this with

respect.

I think that sometimes event

planners forget that they are

operating in a space that is surrounded

by residential homes.

Fire rages, homes at risk

The people in these homes

have experienced trauma and

loss through the red-zoning process

and they need time to adjust

to the different uses.

A big part of moving on is having

some certainty about what’s

going on.

Together with others from

Burwood and Avondale, the

Dallington Residents Association

has been advocating for increased

communication between

LINZ (which owns most of the

red zone land), city council, and

community groups so we are

well informed about what’s going

on in our area.

Last year, there was a music

event in the red zone.

Local residents heard the concert

but had no idea what it was,

where it was, or when it would be

ending.

This uncertainty created anxiety

for some, which would have

been easily resolved by letting

people know what was happening.

A few well-placed signs and

a more substantial flyer drop to

affected locals would have gone a

long way to help the situation.

It’s no more than you’d ask of

your neighbour if they were having

a loud party.

We need to figure out how

everyone can use this shared

space in a way that respects the

past, and the people who still live

nearby.

Now most homes are

owned by speculators.

In regard to Tim Baker’s

comment, we have had

EQC do pipe inspections

two or three times and the

one we recorded, was by

pipevision.co.nz, on December

10, 2014. The small

blockage was cleared on

that day.

We were never advised

by EQC on any necessity

to lay new drainpipes. But

don’t talk to us about EQC

and their repair work.

John Dunphy

– Council can afford all

the luxury trinkets, cycle

lanes and posh buildings

but can’t deal with

its basic infrastructure

and responsibilities to its

ratepayers. And of course,

the east side can wait even

longer cause with a bit of

luck they’ll get wiped out

by a tidal wave before the

next council election.

Chrissi Tukaki – EQC,

not the residents have

failed to fix

the sewers as stated in this

article.

Janice Belgrave –

How are the residents

supposed to fix their

wastewater pipes, in many

cases, would that actually

be “landlords fail to fix

wastewater pipes”? And

therefore, EQC fail to

pay out to fix wastewater

pipes?

Corey Humm – Not

to worry, Lianne will sort

them out with a few cycle

lanes and art installations.

Who needs sewerage?

A reader responds

to the Pegasus Post

article on having

more frontline police

officers at the New

Brighton Police

Station

Christina Taylor – I

am writing to say that

the New Brighton Police

Station would benefit

from having another staff

member available to be on

the front desk.

I have noticed that

the one staff member

sometimes becomes

overworked, it is also

hard for the clients who

feel uncomfortable about

waiting. Members of the

public should be able to

approach the desk for

advice too without going

away feeling put off.

A reader responds

to the Pegasus Post

article on a Tumara

Park resident calling

for the speed limit

to be lowered on

Rothesay Rd, Putake

Drive and roads

within Tumara Park to

40km/h

Bruce Barbour – Yes,

the speed limit should be

reduced or speed bumps

installed in Rothesay Rd

or Putake Drive, as cars

travel at ridiculous speeds

along there. It’s only a

matter of time before a

serious crash occurs.

Anna Lee School of Dance is one of

Canterbury’s premiere dance schools,

offering specialised classes in ballet, jazz,

contemporary and hip-hop. With studios

in Papanui, Ferrymead/Sumner, Halswell

and the Selwyn District (Ladbrooks

and Lincoln), we offer a unique blend

of a family focused studio with all the

benefits of a large, well-established

school – multiple exam/

grading opportunities, large

scale recitals at the beautiful

Isaac Theatre Royal, quality

teaching staff who really care

about their students. The

Papanui studio operates from

two purpose-built dance

studios in a modern building.

Anna Lee School of Dance

has a proven history of

students excelling with superb

exam, medal and competition

results. Dance classes are

tailored for preschoolers

through to advanced students,

catering for all levels of

commitment. There are classes

designed for those who wish

to dance for fun and fitness, as

well as those who are aiming

for a career in dance (we

have past students currently

dancing in companies,

professional shows and

full-time schools all around

the world!) The fun and

supportive environment, with

its emphasis on enjoyment

ensures students feel comfortable as they

learn dance. Students in regular dance

classes benefit from increased confidence

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School

located within the heart of the city

Our play based learning

approach supports your child

as they begin their exciting

journey as a lifelong learner.

Play, laughter and learning are essential

ingredients for a successful Pre-School

education. The crucial early years need to

be nurtured, shaped and cherished as your

child takes their first steps in education.

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School proudly

teaches the children of tomorrow, today.

At Cathedral Grammar Pre-School your

whole family is welcomed into the wider

embrace of the Grammar community

including whole school fun and functions,

services and support as well as smooth

transition to the Junior School and links to

the Prep School.

In Cathedral Grammar’s purpose built

Pre-School, taught by qualified teachers,

your child will discover by curiosity,

investigation and exploration. Our low

child/teacher ratios, ensure your child’s

quality individual and group learning.

Research states that play may be the

single most important things that humans

do. “Our play based learning approach

supports your child as they begin their

exciting journey as a lifelong learner” says

Principal Scott Thelning.

Your child will develop essential

foundations in literacy and numeracy. He

or she will enjoy the benefits of specialised

facilities, subjects and staff including Art,

Physical Education, Yoga and Chapel.

When children feel good about

themselves and their abilities, they are able

to take flight and explore, discover, take

risks and play, laugh and learn effectively

and successfully. “Self-esteem is at the core

of this development process” Thelning

says.

Being an inner city Pre-School gives

you a wonderfully easy opportunity to

engage in your child’s learning if you are

working in the CBD. Every opportunity

is taken to utilise our central city location

to extend our ‘campus’ from the Botanic

Gardens to the Canterbury Museum,

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetu to the Christchurch Transitional

Cathedral, from Tūranga (Christchurch

central library) to the emergency services.

Every day is an open day at Cathedral

Grammar Pre-School. Contact the

Cathedral Grammar School Bamford school

– Every Child, Every Day

2019 edition

The secret of getting ahead is getting

started and at The Cathedral Grammar

School that start is something

extraordinary. Our school is a place of

ambition alongside preparation. We

balance our enduring commitment

to tradition and our Christian values

with an energy to explore and create,

all amplified within small, focused

classrooms and a family centred

environment. Your child’s journey to

excellence begins here with a solid

foundation of academic success and a

well-rounded character.

Cathedral Grammar, with its attached

Pre-School, is a Year 1- Year 8 Primary

School, for both boys and girls. Small

maximum class sizes at every year

level ensures that our teachers build

strong, meaningful and productive

relationships with their students.

Principal Scott Thelning says that the

underlying promise to parents is that

the School will nurture, know and grow

every child, every day in a holistic

manner as they are prepared for life.

“Our student-centred philosophy, caring,

family focussed culture, wonderful

relationships, high expectations and vast

array of opportunities provide a fantastic

environment for all students to thrive.

Our high quality staff employ a variety

of teaching methods within structured

classrooms to provide a balance of

tradition and rigour, while being curious

and adventurous”.

Our school structure is unique among

New Zealand schools and designed to

ensure students have the opportunity to

make the most of their formative years. At

Cathedral Grammar, our students learn

in both co-educational and single-sex

classrooms at times when this best suits

their learning styles. In Pre-School and

the Junior School (Yr 1-3) students learn

in a co-educational environment, while

our Yr 4-8 students attend either our Girls’

School or Boys’ School. “This structure

provides the best of both worlds with

learning, teaching and social interactions

taking place across multiple settings”.

Year 7 opportunities for

girls

Wanting to be assured that your child is

prepared well for secondary school is a

concern for parents. Although the Year

7 level is full for boys in 2019, there are

some vacancies for girls still available.

The Intermediate Years at Cathedral

Grammar are specifically designed to

deliver the best possible preparation

for our girls who attend a variety of

schools across the city, says Head of

the Girl’s School, Brigit McCormack.

“We not only offer the girls a very strong

academic curriculum, we also offer

them a wide variety of opportunities

and the chance to transition into their

teenage years in a supportive, caring

and inclusive environment. Our unique

Mitre Programme for intermediate

students provides opportunities to

develop leadership potential, participate

in Service projects and develop skills

for personal growth and development.

We treasure individuality and strive for

our girls to be inclusive, courageous

with a strong sense of identity. The

girls flourish in our environment which

is based around a specialist teacher

timetable. They leave us as confident and

connected learners who are ready for

the challenges of secondary school and

beyond.”

If you would like to visit the School

and talk to either Scott (Principal) or

Brigit (Head of Girls’ School) please

call us on 3650385 or email principal@

cathedralgrammar.school.nz

Catholic Cathedral College Chisnallwood Intermediate

Catholic Cathedral College has just

celebrated 150 years of history on

its site next to the Cathedral of the

Blessed Sacrament. From the first

arrival of the Sisters of Our Lady of the

Missions in 1868, Catholic education

has been delivered to generations of

Christchurch families in this place.

Today Catholic Cathedral College

is a vibrant community of 450 boys

and girls from Year 7 to Year 13. In

the Marist tradition we focus on the

sense of family and the bonds that

this creates through our academic and

pastoral systems. Our vision statement

is: Guided to live by faith; with mana,

compassion, integrity, and a drive for

personal excellence.

As a Catholic Special Character

school, we aim to develop each

student’s relationship with Jesus, and

each student is supported to be the

best that he or she can be. Besides

excellent academic results each year,

we guide our students to make a

full contribution to their College and

communities through service, respect,

integrity and a strong sense of social

justice.

We celebrate our cultural diversity

whilst acknowledging the important

place of Tangata Whenua and the

obligations we have under the Treaty

of Waitangi in our bicultural society.

Every student from Year 11 is mentored

to ensure he or she is on the most

appropriate academic or vocational

pathway. Our goal is that each

individual will graduate as a young

adult who is confident in their ability,

has respect for themselves and others

and with the knowledge that they have

a faithful relationship with Jesus.

Established as a Junior High School,

Chisnallwood is specifically designed to

meet the needs of students in their preadolescent

years. This design has been

carefully developed over many years

and is based on the best that has been

seen in New Zealand and Internationally.

By enrolling at this school you are

opening doorways to opportunities that

will prepare you fully for secondary and

beyond. A well-balanced mixture of

specialist and home room teaching in

this highly resourced environment will

capture your interest and attention in a

manner that will ensure your success.

Recognised as a leader in its field,

Chisnallwood is nationally renowned

for its achievements particularly in the

areas of music, the arts, sport and all

academic endeavours. This success

is brought about by the quality of

the resources we have and the

commitment of the highly trained and

dedicated teaching staff.

Our values of Respect, Relationships,

Responsibilities and Resilience (Our

4Rs) enable our students to fulfill

our motto which is to challenge the

margins of time and explore what is

beyond.

Starting

a new

school

Whether you have a new entrant, you have moved to a new area or have

children starting at an intermediate or secondary school for the first time,

the feeling of new beginnings can be daunting.

This can be a stressful time for both parents and children alike, so it’s

important that the lines of communication are open so that children can

express their emotions at this time.

If your child is at primary school it’s a good idea to take part in some of

the school drop offs and pick-ups if possible. This means you get to meet

other parents and also allows you to organise all important play dates

that will soon see your child forming new relationships which will settle

them quicker.

Joining sports teams or different organisations within the community

will also help your child meet other children their own age with similar

interests. Make sure you are communicating with your children about the

exciting new possibilities that a new school may bring – new friends, new

teachers and new routines. Making sure they know they can talk with you

about any concerns often gives them peace of mind.

Making the right

impression

Small school has a big

impact

At Hagley we encourage our students to

be aware of their identities, or what they

look like to others.

What our students wear says a lot

about them and of course a lot about

Hagley. For us, it’s simply saying “be

yourself”. Wearing what they like is one

component in establishing whom they

are and also in knowing that they’re in a

school that accepts them for that.

We also encourage our students to

think about what they look like in the

digital world too. John Parsons, a leading

expert on cyber-safety, advises young

people that the message given by

their online appearance should be a

really positive one. Their online identity

should give a “chin up, shoulders back”

message about them. We reinforce that

message and that our students should

actively manage their online reputations.

A negative digital footprint that others

might look at and form a judgement

from is not how they want to appear.

Whatever they are applying for, people

will want to know more about them

and they’ll often find that out online.

We encourage our students to put

on their “best clothes” in the digital

world so that they build themselves an

identity asset online, an identity that

shows a self-confident person. It’s the

persona that they would like to put

forward if they were in fact physically

present in the room with that person

who was checking them out online and

considering them for that scholarship,

job, or whatever they were hoping to be

selected for.

Whatever their plans, we want our

students to value their identities in all

its senses. In many respects, it’s one the

most important assets they have.

Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the

Hornby High School community.

What an exciting year we had in 2018,

2019 looks to be even better as we strive

to get ever closer to our vision as ‘a

centre of creative excellence’.

Having occupied the first of our new

buildings, we watch with excitement as

stage two of our rebuild takes place,

giving us some of the best secondary

school buildings in the country at the

moment.

The spaces encourage all the best

learning habits, and every day we see

our amazing students, our beautiful

rangatahi, engaged with and enjoying

their learning.

During an interview with a new parent

late in 2018, he said ‘You are proud

of this school, aren’t you’, to which I

answered ‘yes we are’. He came right

back at me and said ‘When I dropped

off our enrolment forms, I could see it

in your kids.’ And he is so right. There is

much to be proud of at Te Huruhuru Ao

o Horomaka Hornby High School.

In our new buildings some of the best

pedagogy, the most modern curriculum,

is developing as students and staff

explore new, more exciting, and more

engaging, ways to learn together. All

of this exciting learning is magnified

by our use of Chromebooks. The end

result of this is that, for example, writing

achievement is accelerated at twice the

average for children across the country,

one of many achievements of which we

are very proud. We ask that all children

come to Hornby High School with a

serviceable Chromebook.

On top of all that, music, arts, sport and

culture are flourishing in an environment

in which every student is encouraged

to be her or his best. This approach lies

at the heart of our development of the

many gifts and talents that every child

has.

And all of that takes place on the solid

foundation that is our school values:

Commitment, Achievement, Resilience,

and Respect.

Yet again, what an amazing year we are

going to have. Please do join us and be

a part of the extraordinary adventures of

our rangatahi in 2019.

Papanui High School -

Preparing students for

their future

School preparation

“Our aim is simple... to provide the

best education possible for every

student”

Giving students the opportunity

to study from an innovative and

broad curriculum is critical to

providing each student a pathway

that meets their individual needs.

We allow for a greater range

and flexibility in subject choice

including the utilization of the

secondary/tertiary interface.

This reinforces the philosophy

underpinning personalised

learning and is strongly supported

by understanding our students’

interests, passions, talents, and

ultimately their career aspirations.

We understand that for effective

learning to take place, it has

to be implemented in such a

way that students will be highly

engaged. The school does this

in a ‘forward thinking’ way by

creating learning environments

that allow our students to see

value in what they do and achieve.

Papanui “PRIDE” is what we

represent and we demonstrate

this by having young adults leave

our school as confident learners

who have gained the appropriate

qualifications and social skills

to become valued contributing

members of society.

All that we do here is reinforced

by positive relationships, an ethos

of caring, cultural responsiveness,

inclusion, and high expectations

– what we call “Our Full service

Model”. The school highly values

the connectedness of curricular

and co-curricular learning. We have

a philosophical understanding that

the holistic development of the

student is critical to their individual

success.

The school has worked hard to

consolidate recent initiatives to

ensure sustained and continuous

improvement. You are invited to

view our website, school charter,

Little more than a decade ago

Waltham School had less than

100 pupils, empty classrooms

and wondered what tomorrow

might bring. Today it is a growing ,

thriving and central hub of the local

community.

‘A stable team of dedicated, caring

and genuinely nice people’, are

the keys to Waltham’s success’

according to Principal Gordon

Caddie.

Villa Maria College is a state integrated Catholic

secondary school for girls in Years 7 – 13. The College

was opened by the Sisters of Mercy in 1918 and

has grown to accommodate 800 students within its

beautiful grounds. The spirit of Mercy is the very heart

of our College, and there is an emphasis on service

to others and the community. Girls are educated in

Catholic teachings, and this Catholic character is

evident throughout the College.

Our Mission is to: “Empower each young woman

to determine her potential, live Gospel values,

confidently embrace life-long learning and as a Mercy

woman be inspired to make a difference”.

The education Villa Maria College offers is of the

highest quality, and we are proud of our excellent

academic results. Girls are encouraged to stretch

themselves and work towards individual goals,

so they fulfil their potential. Our strong academic

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times,

new research has shown that neurons

can grow back with the right conditions

and that a special extract of Gingko

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has

been clinically found to assist in this.

The implications for stroke recovery are

obvious, but researchers also know many

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”

that over a period of time slowly

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN

is prescribed worldwide as a natural

supportive agent for a healthy brain and

cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes

the red blood cells more pliable and

capillary walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

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

Cave Rock

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

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

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
