Stalling claim denied by ECan

RESIDENTS AT the Diana

Isaac Retirement Village in

Mairehau say Environment

Canterbury is putting off their

next meeting to discuss new bus

route options.

Village 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 ECan 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 last week, the Orbiter

bus service no longer goes along

Philpotts Rd, leaving the village

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.

A BISHOPDALE menswear

store’s humorous approach to

showing how long the grass is

outside the shop has kicked the

city council into action.

My Mens Store owner Barry

Souter placed a toy cow named

Mildred on the lawn outside

of his shop where the old

Bishopdale Library used to be.

Mr Souter estimated the grass

outside Bishopdale Village Mall

had grown to nearly 1m.

He said there had been

confusion and debate about who

was responsible for maintaining

the land.

City council head of facilities,

property and planning Bruce

Rendall said it was the city

council’s responsibility and the

grassed area had been left off

its maintenance schedule since

the Bishopdale Library was

demolished.

He said thanks to the issue

being raised, the lawn would

now be mowed.

Graham 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 number of 90-yearolds

driving and perhaps

it would be better for

them and the public if

they 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 their bus service was

REFUGEE EXERCISE

Sport Canterbury will run a

refugee-focused exercise class

from term one of the school

year. Classes will be held at the

Riccarton Baptist Church for

gold coin donations. Last year,

a pilot programme was held in

Phillipstown for eight weeks.

It’s when MPs are working on the

ground that we see the impact that

larger issues, such as Government’s

increased fuel taxes, have on

the daily lives of people. Many of

our residents are having to make

tough choices when faced with the

current rising rent, petrol, electricity

and living costs. I’m advocating

for a family who live in a rural area

and are being forced to decide

between putting food on the table

and meeting transport costs to take

their child to the pick-up point to

attend special-needs education in

Christchurch. The record fuel prices

Kiwi families are struggling under

are nowhere near covered by the

conveyance allowance the family

receives. Commonsense says the

best way to help families get ahead

is to let them keep more of what they

earn.

As Kiwi families feel the bite

of Christmas and back to school

costs, many will not be happy to

hear that Government’s 206 reviews

and working groups are costing

taxpayers almost $700,000 a day.

With almost nine years in opposition,

it would be fair to say most would

expect this Government to have

had sound policies already in

place – without needing to delegate

the job to officials, think tanks

and consultants, while expecting

taxpayers to pick up the bill of over

half a million dollars per day. We will

continue to work hard over this term

to develop robust policies that help

families to get ahead.

My wife and I enjoyed helping

serve at a community Christmas

dinner in the Waimakariri electorate.

It’s a great initiative that ensures

people are not left alone at a time

when traditionally shops, clubs and

activities are closed. It’s also a great

chance to make new friends and

celebrate this time of year with the

community. I always like to take part

on Christmas Day, and it’s great to

greet new faces into our community.

My wife and I decided this year to

Good Samaritan and dance teacher

Two Papanui residents

have been recognised

in the New Year

Honours List for their

outstanding contribution

to the community. Matt

Slaughter reports

RECOGNITION: When her

fellow Oasis church group

members found out Elsie

Walkinshaw was to receive a

Queen’s Service Medal, they

made her a replica of their

own.

•Elsie Walkinshaw only began

volunteering at the age of 51.

Now, 30 years later, she can’t

put an exact figure on the

“thousands” of Christchurch

residents she has helped through

a diverse range of struggles.

Mrs Walkinshaw’s work has

been recognised with a Queen’s

Service Medal.

After leaving her job in the

clothing trade and having never

undertaken social work before,

Mrs Walkinshaw took up a role

as a volunteer at the Methodist

Mission.

She said she soon found her

skill-set was well-suited to the

work and that has helped her

to succeed in the voluntary and

professional roles she has worked

in since.

Mrs Walkinshaw was a budget

adviser at the Methodist Mission

and a volunteer at Christchurch

Women’s Refugee before

working full-time at a safe house.​

She helped establish the

Turning Points Trust, an

organisation which provided

budget advice for people in

financial difficulty in east

Christchurch.

After the earthquakes, she

helped quake-affected families

by providing food and other

necessities through the Grace

Vineyard Church.

Since retiring in 2016,

Mrs Walkinshaw has been a

volunteer telephone counsellor

with Lifeline and a volunteer

advocate and debt management

adviser with Freedom Trust.

She was raised in what she

describes as a “very hard, cruel

orphanage” in England after the

death of her mother when she

was just two.

She became a foster

child at the age of 10, before

moving back in with her

father, who at the time had not

recovered from the death of his

wife, she said.

Mrs Walkinshaw said

“all the years of hell I had

as a child” was what inspired her

to devote the second half of her

life to helping people in need.

“Because of that, I was able

to reach out and understand.

People used to say, you have no

idea how I feel, but I did.”

Mrs Walkinshaw said she

did not tell anyone she had

been nominated for a Queen’s

Service Medal until it was

announced.

“I was shocked, but I am

highly-honoured.”

“I don’t think I’m different

to anyone else, I just loved my

work.”

take honours

•Cushla-Mary Piesse has

devoted herself to spreading

Scottish culture through Highland

dancing.

Mrs Piesse first discovered her

love for Highland dancing at the

age of seven.

Her passion for learning the art

form as a child inspired her to teach

it as an adult.

Mrs Piesse has never stopped

teaching since and has been a

Highland dancing tutor at the

Scottish Society of New Zealand for

about 40 years.

Her commitment to spreading

joy through dance has led to her

being named a member of the New

Zealand Order of Merit.

Mrs Piesse said seeing the

children she teaches develop

the same passion that she had at

their age makes her hard work

worthwhile.

“I got so much enjoyment out

of it during my teenage years, and

even into my adult years, that I

really wanted to give back and just

see children enjoying Highland

dancing.”

She said her work has

also been about “passing on

the culture for all things Scottish.”

Mrs Piesse said she was doing

what she loves when she received

news of her recognition – judging

a dancing competition at the

Highland Games in Waipu,

Northland.

She said most of her work has

been voluntary and her reason

for doing it for so many years was

simple.

“It’s all been for the love of

dancing really,” she said.

Mrs Piesse said she has seen

Highland dancing become more

popular since she first became

involved and is certain it will

continue to grow as more people

take it up.

She said her children and

grandchildren were Highland

dancers, too, so the family legacy is

in safe hands.

Mrs Piesse said Highland

dancing classes play a role in

helping young dancers grow as

people.

“The Saturday morning dance

class is a place where you nurture

children who love dancing, so

hopefully they will go on and do

the same thing that I have.”

Jack of all trades honoured

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Gordon Findlater

IN THE sporting realm there’s

not much that Barry Gardiner

hasn’t done.

The Avonhead 81-year-old

who celebrated his birthday last

week was recognised for his

achievements by being named

in the New Year Honours List as

a member of the New Zealand

Order of Merit.

Rather than sitting back and

relaxing on the back of the nod,

Gardiner is doing what he does

best. He’s played 10 rounds of

golf in the last 12 days, is swimming

and playing squash regularly,

and is currently riding the

bike most days as he trains for

the 47km Motatapu mountain

bike race from Wanaka to Arrowtown

in March.

“It’s quite a tough course but I

go in it most years because I get

the prize for the oldest finisher

which is a bottle of wine . . . it’s

good stuff as well, Central Otago

pinot noir,” said Gardiner.

You could say Gardiner has

peaked late. In recent times he’s

won squash world titles in the

over 50, 60 and 70 categories.

In his younger days he was one

of the South Island’s top rugby

league and union players until a

serious knee injury in 1965 while

playing for the Hanan Shield

team (a mid-Canterbury, South

Canterbury and North Otago

combined team) against the

Springboks.

Gardner holds a unique record

of having played four different

positions against France in two

different codes in the space of a

year.

In 1960 he played for the South

Island in a rugby league match

against the French. He started in

the forwards. However, 20min

into the game the South Island

halfback was injured. With no

replacements in those days he

played the rest of the match at

halfback.

The following year he represented

South Canterbury

against France. After starting at

flanker he finished the match at

first five-eighths due to another

injury.

Gardiner never played internationally

in either code. However,

he came as close as you possibly

can in 1958 when he was selected

as the emergency forward for

the Kiwis ahead of a test against

Great Britain.

“There was a guy by the name

of Jack Jones who was the prop

selected from Canterbury and

he ended up breaking his finger.

When they found out he couldn’t

play we only had six forwards

and I was included . . . on the

Friday night they announced the

team and they bought in a big

prop from Auckland so everyone

got dropped back one and I

ended up being the emergency,

so I missed out.”

Before moving to Timaru,

Gardiner was part of a very successful

West Coast league team.

“In 1960 we played Auckland

in Auckland and beat them . . .

there was probably about 11 or

12 coasters in the South Island

team that same year and beat

the North Island team in Greymouth,”

said Gardiner.

“We used to beat Canterbury

regularly. It was a good era for

West Coast rugby league. If you

look at where it is on the coast

now it’s a shame. They’ve lost all

their big miners and timber people

which was their strike force

for rugby league.”

Gardiner also played cricket for

the West Coast as a wicket-keeper,

including an unsuccessful Hawke

Cup challenge against Nelson.

While living in the West Coast

he also won the shot put title at

the Canterbury junior athletics

championships in dramatic

fashion.

FAMILY SUCCESS: In 2016, Gardiner won the

75-plus national squash title, his son-in-law

Grant Craig (left) won the 50-plus title and son

Dave Gardiner (right) won the 40-plus title. Two

weeks earlier his granddaughter Megan Craig

won the NZ open women’s title.

travelled by bus on Friday for

the Saturday event. However, a

storm closed roads to Christchurch

meaning the bus didn’t

arrive at Lancaster Park until the

event was well under way.

“We ran across to the shot put

and it had just finished. The official

said: ‘Look I’m sorry but you’re

too late we’ve just finished it.’ We

explained the situation and he said

you can have one throw and it’s

going to have to be right now. I was

still in my street clothes, I picked

it up did my best Parry O’Brien

technique. It flew out of my hand

and I ended up winning it.”

In terms of the many highlights

Gardiner holds a world

over-50 squash title in 1991 as his

greatest achievement.

“I never knew I had that in me.”

The squash court is also where

Gardiner’s most hilarious sporting

moment occurred.

“I was warming for my match

and was in my track pants on. I

went off to take my track pants

off, came back on the court

started the game and the crowd

starting laughing, I looked down

to see I was standing there in my

undies. I had forgot to put on my

shorts under my track pants.”

Off the field Gardiner has been

involved as an administrator

at club, district, national and

international levels. He has

held voluntary committee

membership positions with

squash clubs for 51 years.

Founder of Eldernet recognised

Fire rages, homes at risk

• 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 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

22, 2011, earthquake Eldernet

commissioned a report into the

aged-care sector response to the

Honours List.

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.

‘I love meeting people’

– Eleanor Bodger

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.

“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.

Ms Bodger, along with about

three of her staff including her

daughter Esther Perriam will

travel around talking to groups

and organisations.

“We get a huge overview of

what is happening in the area at

any given time and it is pretty

exciting to be able to do that,” she

said.

Achieve your City2Surf goal

IF YOU have over-indulged

during the holidays, there’s no

better way to start the year than

with a new health goal.

The City2Surf on Sunday,

March 24, provides an

opportunity for people of all

different sporting and fitness

abilities to take part in one

of the South Island’s largest

participation events, which

brings together thousands of

people for fun and fitness.

There will be two events

– a 14km event starting at

Centennial Park, Spreydon,

and a Sport Canterbury 6km

event starting at Hansen Park in

Opawa.

The varying lengths mean

there is something suitable

for everyone, whether you

are a runner or walker. Both

events finish at the Ferrymead

playing fields with free entry

to Ferrymead Historic Park for

participants.

Star Media events manager Jon

Holmes said if people don’t know

where to start when training for

a running event, they can check

out the 10-week jog programme,

designed by SportsMed, in The

Star and at www.city2surf.co.nz.

The first edition of the

programme will feature in The

Star on Thursday.

The Athlete’s Foot will continue

to provide a six-week, free

training series in South Hagley

Park every Wednesday, starting

on February 13.

“It’s great for those who want to

meet other runners and get some

tips from the pros and it is open

to all abilities,” Jon said.

“The message is, no matter

what you do or how you do

it, keeping fit and active is so

important for both your physical

and mental health. It’s about

getting up, getting out and

having fun.”

SportsMedicine practitioner

and coach John Hellemans

provides tips every week in a

training programme on the

City2Surf website.

Dr Hellemans says if you are

starting your running journey

from scratch and have never

really jogged or ran before, he

recommends alternating between

brisk walking and jogging.

“Be aware that jogging is

different from running. When

jogging, you go at a pace which is

only a fraction faster than a brisk

walk. Your feet stay close to the

ground and the rhythm is that of

a slow dance.”

This is a technique that, once

mastered, will enable you to

jog for a longer period of time,

allowing you to build up your

fitness and run longer distances.

Participants can choose to

either take part individually or in

a team.

At last year’s event, there

were more than 170 team

entries, including teams of

doctors, construction workers,

accountants and scientists.

Well-known Avon Rowing

Club member will be missed

• Matt Slaughter

THE AVON Rowing Club

community is mourning the

death of one of its longestserving

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 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.

Lower speeds near schools likely

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

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.

Signs showing those times will

be installed on side roads including

Atlantis St, Blue Gum Place,

Wattle Drive, Saltaire St and

Marriotts Rd.

City councillor David East

said while he was comfortable

with a 40km/h speed limit

zone around the school, he was

“a bit ambivalent” about the

proposed speed limit change to

Frosts Rd.

“I would prefer to see

some conformity of

60km/h on Frosts Rd

and 60km/h on Travis

Rd back up towards Bassett

St . . . it just needs

uniformity around the

speed zones he said.

Keep QE II in the East

spokeswoman Jo Zervos said the

school speed zones and lowering

the speed limits are “common

sense.”

She said it would have been

better if the school was located

further back from the roadside as

QE II Park is a busy area.

Public consultation will run

until January 28. To make a

submission go to https://www.

ccc.govt.nz

Twins keep parents on their toes

Two years ago

Redwood’s Radhika

Naidu gave birth to

identical twin boys,

Manu and Dominic

Wells. Emily O’Connell

catches up with the

family

“CHEERFUL, PLAYFUL and

extremely naughty.”

That’s how Radhika Naidu describes

her twin boys who were

born nine weeks premature on

January 1, 2017.

Their early arrival meant the

twins spent the first 57 days of

their life in a neonatal intensive

care unit in Christchurch

Women’s Hospital. It also meant

the pair were known as twin

one and two for six weeks, while

Ms Naidu and husband Victor

Wells decided on names which

included both their cultures.

Although the two-year-olds

are identical, Ms Naidu says they

look “so different” and their personalities

are not “alike at all.”

She said Manu, who is the

bigger twin, was the first to walk

and develop skills and Dominic

is more cheerful and observant

and “takes on adverse situations

more readily.”

Along with the twins, Ms

Naidu and Mr Wells are kept

busy with two other children,

Mia, 7, and Ariki who is threeand-half-years

old.

“I just don’t remember having to

monitor them [Mia and Ariki] all

the time like this. These guys [the

twins] egg each other on,” she said.

Ms Naidu says the biggest difference

between the twins and

her older two children is their

comprised immunity caused by a

premature birth.

“Especially Dominic, so when

he was born . . . they realised

his umbilical cord was straggly

and unhealthy looking and it

had knots in it. So it had been

comprising his blood flow from

the beginning,” she said.

Dominic has an eye condition

called nystagmus, which Ms

Naidu has been told is common

with premature babies, and he

has immature lung development

meaning he gets sick easily.

“They both have asthma and

eczema and they use preventers.

They seem to be a little better

now. We’re hoping they keep

improving,” she said.

January 2017 was a busy

month for Ms Naidu and Mr

Wells, with the birth of their

twins which “forever redefined”

New Year’s Day for them, moving

to Redwood from St Albans

and their first child, Mia, starting

primary school. Ms Naidu

said her husband was the “rock”

during this time.

Protima Naidu was born

Ms Naidu says discovering

Mulitples Canterbury, which

supports people with twins,

triplets or more, has been “encouraging”

and has helped her

feel less isolated.

She said the organisation

provides new parents with

information such as dietary

requirements for premature babies,

the best strollers to use and it helps

connect parents to relevant groups.

Arshaan meets cricket heroes

YOUNG HALSWELL cricketer

Arshaan Askari got up close and

personal with some of his heroes.

Arshaan, 8, met Black Caps

captain Kane Williamson and

Sri Lankan captain Dinesh

Chandimal before day one of the

Boxing Day test at Hagley Oval.

Arshaan won an ANZ

competition to become the coin

toss kid for the day’s play.

He has been playing cricket

for two years with the Halswell

Hurricanes.

Arshaan said it was awesome

to meet Williamson and

Chandimal.

“I love playing cricket. I play

after school and on the weekend.

It was so cool meeting the

captains and getting to be a part

of the coin toss.”

ANZ head of sponsorship Sue

McGregor said Arshaan was one

of 23 young cricketers selected to

take part in the pre-match ritual

this season.

“We are delighted to bring

together the next generation of

cricketers and their heroes. At

ANZ we believe it’s important

to involve and encourage young

cricketers, which is why we

continue to support grassroots

sports,” she said.

“We hope that when they

meet their idols out on the pitch,

they are inspired to continue

training hard and pursuing their

dreams.”

A DECISION on the future of 21

oak trees at Villa Grove has been

deferred.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said the issue was

not discussed at the board

meeting last month because

not all residents were aware the

discussion was due to take place.

As a result, the matter was

deferred until the next board

meeting on January 29 or until

early next month.

This will give time to ensure all

residents are made aware that the

topic will be brought back to the

community board table, Mr Mora

said.

A representative for Villa Grove

residents refused to comment.

DECISION:

Villa Grove

residents

want the

removed. ​

Board delays decision

on Villa Grove trees

Western News reported in

September that Villa Grove

residents were unhappy with

the oak trees and wanted them

removed.

THe residents presented a

24-signature petition to the

community board, calling for the

trees to be removed.

Residents told the community

board that leaves from the trees

had been set on fire, the trees

caused uneven footpaths and they

feared the oaks could topple in

high wind.

THe board members met with

the residents in October to inspect

the area before making a decision.

THe trees are between 8.1m

and 15.8m high and were

planted between 1992 and 1994,

when the Villa Grove subdivision

was built.

Enrolments for Term

One at Anna Lee

School of Dance are

being taken now

DRINKS: This illustration from M. Bartlet, courtesy of Papanui High School,

shows how The Sawyers Arms, one of the first public houses opened in

Papanui, catered mostly for timber workers in the area.

Rich history behind one

of Papanui’s first pubs

Papanui Heritage Group chairman Murray Williams writes about

the history of The Sawyers Arms pub and its previous owners

ONE OF the first service

industries to be set up

to cater for the timber

workers of early Papanui

was a public house known

as The Sawyers Arms,

located on the road which

shared its name.

The licensees of this

establishment, Henry Roil

and Robert Carr, were

colourful characters who

before becoming owners

of the hotel had described

themselves as ‘timber

dealers.’

They had also acquired

land in Papanui and after

relinquishing their hotel

licence in 1854, tried to

generate some income

from this holding by

seeking lessees for two 12

acre (4.8ha) lots.

Over the next three

years, Mr Roil and

Mr Carr advertised

continually and

presumably fruitlessly in

the Lyttelton Times.

The lack of interest

on the part of potential

tenants could perhaps

have been because the

land, with its frontage on

Sawyers Arms Rd, would

have been the first part

of the native bush to have

been cut out and was then

considered to have little

residual value.

It was not until the early

1860s that it was realised

that, when drained, the

land could sustain a

horticultural and farming

future.

Mr Roil died in 1862

from the effects of an

accident when his dray

collided with a bullock

wagon but the fate of

Mr Carr and his wife

Elizabeth is less clear-cut.

Charlotte MacDonald,

in her book A Woman

of Good Character, has

attempted to document

their experiences.

In 1857, they left New

Zealand for Britain but

Mr Carr deserted his wife

and their two children.

However, Mrs Carr

displayed her tenacity

by following her errant

husband’s trail around the

world. In 1861 she turned

up in Sydney but by 1865

she was in London.

There she contacted

John Marshman, the

Canterbury immigration

agent, for help in tracing

her husband and was also

interested in establishing

his assets, specifically a

certain landholding in

Papanui.

After this reference,

MacDonald could find no

further record as to either

Mr or Mrs Carr, although

it is possible that Mr Carr

returned to the United

States, the land of his birth.

However, 156 years

after Mr Roil’s death, Mr

Carr’s erstwhile partner

earned somewhat tardy

recognition for his role as

an early Papanui settler.

In 2018, a new residential

development off Sawyers

Arms Rd was officially

named Henry Roil Ln.

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

and coordination, self-esteem and self-discipline.

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.

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

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.

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.

Hornby High School

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo

e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste.

Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te Kura Huruhuru

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

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

Device to prevent

snoring

Check out the End of Holidays Party at Jellie Park Recreation and Sports

Centre, 295 Ilam Rd, Burnside, on Saturday, noon-3pm. Celebrate the end

of the school holidays with buskers, a wipeout machine, inflatables in the

pool, music and a free sausage sizzle.

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years

and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim on

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.
