SPLISH SPLASH!

28 deg C last week, swimming

pools were an ideal spot to

Call to

thwart

drivers

taking

short cuts

• By Anan Zaki

RESIDENTS growing tired of

short cut-takers have petitioned

the city council to close off their

street.

Konini St residents submitted

a 38-signature petition to the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board, calling to

restrict access to their street from

the busy Riccarton Rd.

Konini St is off Riccarton Rd,

opposite Shand Crescent Reserve.

A representative for the residents,

Annette Pendergast says

the short cut-taking traffic was

“horrendous.”

She said because of changes to

traffic patterns since the February

22, 2011, earthquake, the street

has become dangerous.

“Post earthquakes, traffic directions

changed. Once upon a time

traffic headed into the CBD,” Mrs

Pendergast said.

“That Clyde Rd area became

really congested, we found that a

lot of traffic was cutting through

Konini St [to access Clyde Rd].”

Grass fire

flares up

in Hornby

• By Anan Zaki

FIRE CREWS were called to a

vegetation fire at an industrial

area in Hornby last week.

Fire and Emergency spokesman

Andrew Norris said firefighters

attended the grass fire

outside Streamline Freight at

Waterloo Rd at about 4.50pm,

Wednesday.

It was extinguished by one

fire truck, but crews were

present for about 40 minutes,

he said.

The cause of the fire is not

known, Mr Norris said.

Fire investigator Wayne

Hamilton said it was standard

practice to make sure the hot

spots were cooled down in

vegetation fires, which was

why crews were out for 40

minutes.

Meanwhile, Fire and

Emergency was called for a

precautionary measure last

Tuesday at the request of

Meridian Energy, after power

lines came down on Old West

Coast Rd, Yaldhurst.

The area was isolated until

Orion arrived and there were

no power outages.

•From page 1

Mrs Pendergast lived at Konini

St for 12 years and was familiar

with her former neighbours’

concerns.

She now lives at nearby

Wharenui Rd.

“I stay in touch with my old

neighbours. When I moved there

15 years ago it was beautiful with

big wide grass berms and it was a

lovely quiet street.”

Continuous roadworks, lack

of maintenance and increased

traffic has changed that, Mrs

Pendergast said.

Last year, roadworks temporarily

blocked the direct route from

Konini St to Clyde Rd for about

six months and it made a “real

difference” to residents who were

frustrated about drivers taking

short cuts, she said.

But after the road reopened

before Christmas, the residents’

temporary relief from traffic

ended, she said.

City council transport operations

manager Steffan Thomas

said council staff are looking at

the issue.

“Staff are looking to report

back to the [Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton] Community Board by

the end of April,” he said.

“This would only be to advise

on the most appropriate option

for Konini St as, at this stage,

there is no funding allocated to

implementing any changes,” Mr

Thomas said.

Nga Puna Wai road a no-goer

• By Anan Zaki

AIDANFIELD residents will

continue to have to put up with

cars going through their streets

to reach the Nga Puna Wai

sports facility.

Euphrasie Drive resident

Wayne Keen is calling on the

city council to put in a 100m

stretch of road to stop cars

travelling through his “narrow”

street to access the sports hub.

Mr Keen says if a road was

built to connect McMahon and

Augustine Drives, cars travelling

from the Aidanfield Drive

overbridge would not have to go

through the narrower streets in

Aidanfield.

It would also make the journey

faster, he said.

But the city council says it has

no plans to install a permanent

link for the two roads.

Mr Keen said McMahon and

Augustine Drives had parking

bays, which meant greater room

to cater for the increased traffic

since the sports facility opened

last year.

Euphrasie Drive was not as

wide, he said.

City council manager capital

delivery Darren Moses said there

is currently a truck access between

McMahon and Augustine

Drives, but it only for

heavy trucks on a “case-by-case

basis.”

“For major events, Nga Puna

Wai will seek one off permission

to use the McMahon entrance to

help spread traffic,” he said.

Mr Keen said the city council

should seal the truck access.

“Why don’t you [council] just

make it easier for people? It just

beggars belief.”

“This is the formed [truck access]

they had to form to build

the place,” he said.

Mr Keen said planners overlooked

the impact from traffic

travelling from the Aidanfield

Drive overbridge.

“To build everything down the

Halswell Rd end of Augustine

Drive was short-sighted,” he

said.

“Does everybody come from

that side of the city? No. So

guess what? The traffic is going

down Wigram Rd, coming up

Multi-skilled

AGELESS: Barry Gardiner is training for the 47km Motatapu mountain bike race. He will be the

oldest competitor at 81.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

• 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.

Gardiner 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.

Friday night they announced the

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

“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

Gardiner also played cricket

for the West Coast as a wicketkeeper,

including an unsuccessful

Hawke Cup challenge against

Nelson.

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.

While living in the West Coast

he also won the shot put title at

the Canterbury junior athletics

championships in dramatic

fashion.

The West Coast athletes

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.

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.

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.

Running reds: ‘It’s just not worth it’

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

RED LIGHT-runners, like the

person driving this campervan,

are putting other motorists lives

at risk.

Last Tuesday afternoon the

vehicle ran a red light at the busy

Curletts Rd and Main South Rd

intersection in Upper Riccarton.

The

Christchurch

Transport

Operations

Centre has

just released

its annual data

on red lightrunners

at city

Glen Koorey

intersections,

which was collected

over 24

hours on November 29.

The intersection of Curletts and

Main South Rds was the worst,

with 861 motorists running red

lights during that period.

That equates to nearly 36 every

hour. More than 500 of the red

light-runners were from the

Curletts Rd north approach.

There were 10 crossing crashes

at the intersection between 2012

and 2016, including one fatal in

2011.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Ash Tabb said

red light-running put drivers,

passengers and other road users

at risk.

“Our staff are working on our

roads every day trying to stop

risky behaviour, such as people

running red lights,” he said.

He said too many drivers enter

intersections on orange lights.

“These often change to red

while the driver is still in the intersection,

which creates unnecessary

risk,” said Inspector Tabb.

“What people need to remember

is, it’s just not worth it. You’ve

got to ask yourself; is it worth

crashing and risking injury – or

worse – just to get across an

intersection without having to

wait for another light change? You

could seriously hurt yourself, or

somebody else.”

Second on the red light-running

list, and also last year’s highest,

was Colombo St and Moorhouse

Ave with 806 runners. Last year it

had 666.

The intersection also has the

second highest number of recorded

crashes with six between

2012 and 2016. Buckleys Rd and

Russell St in Linwood was third,

with 649 runners recorded.

At the city’s 15 worst intersections,

8170 motorists were

detected running red lights.

That was up from 7224 last year

and 6580 in 2016.

City council operations manager

transport Steffan Thomas

said the city council is concerned

about the number of red lightrunners.

“At present, the trial red light

camera is collecting statistical

information, including video and

fixed images of speeding and red

light-running incidents,” he said.

The camera is at the intersection

of Bealey Ave and Madras St.

“Police have access to the data

collected from the red light-running

camera so that they may use

it to help inform any enforcement

strategies.”

ViaStrada senior traffic engineer

Glen Koorey said there are a

“myriad” of reasons why red lightrunning

occurs.

“It can be deliberate or it can be

innocent, people might not notice

the light,” he said.

“Sometimes even just a change

in traffic volume pressure at a

particular time of the day . . .

Curletts is busy at the best of

times.”

The worst intersections

for red light-runners:

•Curletts Rd/Main

South Rd – 861

•Moorhouse Ave/

Colombo St – 806

•Buckleys Rd/Russell

St – 649

•Riccarton Rd/Rimu St

Subdivision stoush heats up

Resident

accused of

stifling growth

• By Anan Zaki

A RESIDENT caught up in a

Yaldhurst subdivision battle

has accused another local of

holding back growth.

Last month, Western

News reported Colin Stokes’

efforts to stop the naming of

a road in the

Yaldhurst

Park subdivision.

Mr

Stokes said

naming the

road would

legitimise

it – and he

believed it

did not have

the required stormwater provisions.

Following the article, another

Yaldhurst resident, Douglas

Cameron, contacted Western

News, saying Mr Stokes was

stifling growth in the area.

“Eight years in contesting

issues, he [Mr Stokes] has been

putting up all sorts of barriers,

preventing the roading from

Drive, which would link two Yaldhurst subdivisions.

going through,” Mr Cameron

said.

Allowing the roads to go

ahead would mean another

step forward in connecting the

two subdivisions, Mr Cameron

said.

“We were promised many

years ago to have roading

access out through Rannoch

Drive into the new [Yaldhurst

Park] subdivision.”

Mr Stokes denied he was

holding up the development.

“That’s not the case at all.

We’ve never stopped the

subdivision from going ahead,”

Mr Stokes said.

He said he has been

acting to protect his interests

– he wants to be included in

the Yaldhurst Park subdivision

via a road link which is yet to

happen.

Mr Stokes agreed Mr

Cameron should vent his

frustration over the issue, but

not at him.

Mr Stokes said the

frustration should be directed

at the roading authorities, city

council and the New Zealand

Transport Agency.

“If Mr Cameron wants

details to assist him in

his endeavours to force

the construction of this

connection, I am only too

happy to help,” he said.

KIDSTUFF

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

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.

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.

Responsibilities and Resilience (Our

our motto which is to challenge the

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

view our website, school charter,

ERO report, and/or contact the

school for more information.

The tree of LIFE

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.

extensively landscaped with hardy plantings

for minimal upkeep while offering the best

of privacy. The varied outdoor living areas

really allow for making the most of the

warm summer nights.

Seriously good real estate and too

special not to experience in person. Make

no mistake, very motivated owners are

demanding a sale as they are relocating

back into the city for family commitments.

Open Home: Sunday 20 January 2pm-

2.45pm. To arrange a private viewing

or for more information contact Alison

Carter of Harcourts Grenadier Sumner/

Ferrymead (Licensed Agent REAA 2008)

on 384 7950 or mobile 0274 318 960.
