MORE EVIDENCE on page 1 today of the

rapidly expanding suburbs in the southwest.

Canterbury Property Investments Ltd, a

big player in the rebuild, wants to build an

eight-cinema complex at The landing in Wigram Skies.

That’s a smart move from the company as the area continues

to boom.

Bars, cafes, retail and health services have and are moving

into Wigram to capitalise on what provides the dollars – people.

The complex will be called the Silky Otter. I haven’t seen any

in the Wigram area, but it’s not a bad sort of a name.

Community groups and the community board are behind the

idea, so while the plan has to go through the resource consent

process, I’d say it’s a home run.

Linwood rallies to help businesses

A COMMUNITY event has

brought Linwood residents back

together after the mosque attack.

The event, organised by Lo

TV Rentals and city

councillor Yani Johanson,

was held on Wednesday

at Linwood Ave. It aimed

to help local businesses,

which were impacted by

the cordon.

Residents were joined

by police and Linwood

Islamic Centre members.

Games were held to

bring back some community

spirit to the area after the events

of March 15.



Cr Johanson said the event had

been a great way to bring things

back to normality. “It was heartwarming

to see the community

coming together to show

support for this local area.”

He will continue

working with the


Heathcote Community

Board “to strongly

advocate and work with

Government and the city

council to get support for

the ongoing recovery of

the Linwood Islamic Centre,

the Linwood community and

neighbourhood businesses.”

TOGETHER: Police helped entertain children at the Linwood

community event.

Digging deep on Riccarton Rd

ABOUT 1m of Riccarton Rd

needs to be dug a day as part of

the $18.4 million upgrade.

Almost 1km of sewer pipe

needs to be replaced, buried 4m

below the road and work digging

it up has begun.

“Replacing that much pipe at

the depth is a big project by any

measure, but when you’re digging

up Christchurch’s second busiest

road, you have another ball to

juggle in terms of keeping traffic

moving both ways and keeping

access to all the open shops,” said

manager planning and delivery

transport Lynette Ellis.

“The sewer pipes are nearly

100-years-old and at the end of

their lifespan, so the work has to

happen now if we want to avoid

the pipes failing,” Ms Ellis said.

“We thought we’d take the

opportunity to make quite a few

other improvements to Riccarton

Rd that will leave the whole

area much more vehicle – and

pedestrian-friendly than it is.”

The project will cost $18.4

million and is expected to be

complete by December 2020.

The city council is also replacing

water mains under the road.

Once the underground work

is finished, the council will

rebuild the road and then

widen it, creating bus priority

measures and extra space for

upgrade opposite Westfield Shopping Centre.

emergency vehicles.

“Riccarton Rd has more than

800 bus movements a day and

around 3000 passengers boarding

here per weekday, so the bus

priority measures will provide

more reliable bus travel for a lot

of people, especially at peak times

when they need to get to work or

home,” Ms Ellis said.

There will be sections of bus

lane on each side of the road, bus

lights at traffic signals so buses

can proceed ahead of general

traffic, and longer bus stops so

getting on and off is easier and

quicker for passengers.

A tree-lined median is also

being installed between Clarence

and Matipo Sts.

“The trees we’re putting in will

have a calming effect that will gently

slow traffic, which will make

this section of the road a more

pleasant destination for shoppers

and visitors,” Ms Ellis said.

On-street parking along Riccarton

Rd is being permanently

removed to make space for the

new road layout, but the council

has created a time-restricted

car park behind Riccarton Rd

between Rimu St and Straven Rd

to replace it.

Eight-cinema complex

planned for Wigram Skies

•From page 1

A transportation assessment

said the traffic generated by the

development can be accommodated

on the adjacent network

without capacity or efficiency

issues arising.

The idea of a new cinema

complex has received positive

feedback from the community.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association member

Mark Peters said it

is a “fantastic idea” and

will be a great resource.

“There are a number of

residents in the Hornby

area that would be really

keen to have a cinema

back in our region. I

am sure there will be plenty of

patronage,” he said.

His views were backed by

Awatea Residents Association

secretary Kay Stieller, who

said it will mean having more

facilities in the community and

residents won’t have to go into

the city.


Community Board chairman

Mike Mora said if it brings

people, business and provides

entertainment, it could be positive

for the area.


“I was totally unaware of

it . . . I am not really in a position

to say too much about it

because I haven’t seen the application,”

he said.

In 2011 independent cinema

Movieland closed after more

than 20 years in business to

make way for expansion plans

at The Hub Hornby

shopping mall.

The Hub Hornby

centre manager Jason

Marsden said there

was never any plans

to include a new one

due to simply not

having the space to

accommodate everything

it wanted to.

The mall completed

its last redevelopment

back in 2016.

“People do love having a

cinema in their community . . .

it would be a great asset to the

community to have a cinema

back here and I hope it goes

really well,” Mr Marsden said.

Changes to online Halswell page

AN ONGOING social media

quarrel has led to a survey being

released on how Halswell’s

resident Greig Russell who

posting a mobile number on the

page. As a result of falling out

with the administrators, he has

since set up his own page called

Halswell Community Page


Following the Halswell

Community Group Facebook

page releasing the findings of its

survey, the group decided it

will continue to approve posts

in spite of the majority voting

against it.

Out of the 352 people that took

part in the survey, 61.9 per cent

preferred it being allowed for

any member to post to the

Facebook page, while 34.7 per

cent voted to have all online

posts approved.

But Dr Horn said approving

all posts online has made the

administrators lives so much

easier and it has cut down their

workload enormously.

She said because the group is

approving posts before they go

online she feels it was unlikely

Mr Russell would cause too

much damage and would be

happier about adding him back

to the group.

But Mr Russell said he was no

longer interested in being part

of the page and it was not worth

the “headache.”

He said he didn’t think the

group was going to change and it

was “wrong” for them to decide

what people should or shouldn’t

read and many Halswell

residents were sick of it.

Mr Russell has also criticised

the page for temporarily

shutting down over the weekend


But Dr Horn said that

was not fair, the group

administrators needed a

weekend to talk about the way

the group was run.

“It is all done voluntarily

. . . we had a team where people

were starting to think, oh we

don’t really want to do this

anymore,” she said.

Other conclusions from the

survey was for the group to

allow local clubs and groups

advertise fundraisers, the

majority wanted less trolling

and bickering and members

should not be able to list items

for sale.




Land gift keeps

riding school


Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Louis Day


School will live on due to a change

of land ownership.

After 36 years of ownership,

14ha within the Heathcote Valley

has been gifted to the newlyformed

Kahukura Charitable

Trust by Heathcote Recreational

Holdings Ltd.

A small ceremony was held on

Sunday to mark the transition of

ownership, led with a karakia from

Uekaha Taane.

The land has been home to the

Heathcote Valley Riding School

for the last 30 years.

Aisjah Addison who started the

riding school, said it would continue

under the trust.

“The land has shown us what

to keep doing and now we want it

protected for the future and keep

giving children the opportunity to

learn, so that the land – the heart

of the valley – will remain open

and green forever,” she said.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton was delighted to

see the riding school live on.

“The fact that the riding school

is there and the horses and the

paddocks gives the valley this

rural feel which people really

value,” she said.

School of Choice

Celebrating Kirkwood House

Captains for 2019

Year 7 Camp

Our Year 7 pupils have recently

attended a camp at Purau Bay.

This is a great way for the children

to get to know each other.

Canadian canoeing was my favourite part of camp, it

was really fun racing each other. We enjoyed playing

football, the game predator and kick the can. It was

a great way to get to know each other and I hope this

camp continues for years to come. We had the most

amazing parent helpers which we really enjoyed. We

also learnt to cooperate with each other and it gave us

an opportunity to get to know our class mates better.

House Captains for Mansfield/Hillary

Callum - Ex Prebbleton School I love Kirkwood Intermediate because

there are a lot of opportunities for sport and leadership. I would like to

make the Basket A Team and look forward to experiencing the Chinese

culture when I travel to China on the school trip. I wanted to be House

Captain to improve my leadership skills and so I can be a good role model

for the school.

Emanuela - Ex Clearview Primary Kirkwood provides many different

opportunities for us to experience. I will like to work on achieving an allround

elite Blue which is part of our Kirkwood Blues Awards. My goal in

Year 7 was to show my leadership skills in Year 8.

House Captains for Sheppard/Freyberg

Carsyn - Ex West Spreydon I enjoy Kirkwood because it has so many

opportunities. This year, I would like to earn another Blues Award as well

as learn as much as I can. This year I want to help others and ensure

everyone is happy.

Sophie M - Ex Halswell Primary School I love the many opportunities

available at Kirkwood and I would like to be involved as much as possible

while being a good role model. I will enjoy being a great leader and making

Sheppard/Freyberg the best house.

House Captains for Britten/Te Kanawa

Jakub - Ex Rolleston School Kirkwood Intermediate School has a great

atmosphere, with amazing pupils and staff. There are so many opportunities

you can do and no one judges you. This year I would love to get an allround

elite from the Blues Awards system. I am also looking forward to

the trip to China and learning about their culture. I would like to be a good

role model for everyone and gain more skills in leadership. I look forward to

helping others.

Sofia M - Ex Oaklands School I love Kirkwood as there are a lot of great

opportunities. The teachers are awesome and you get to try new things to

challenge yourself. This year I would like to achieve good grades, learn a lot

and will look forward to a brilliant final year. I was inspired by our last year’s

House Captains and I would like to inspire the Year 7 pupils.

House Captains for Rutherford/Batten

Ariel - Ex Edmonton Primary (Auckland) I Love the opportunities made

available at Kirkwood Intermediate School. I would like to be involved in

basketball and I will look forward to learning all about China when I visit later

on in the year.

Elham - Ex Gilberthorpe School I love everything about Kirkwood

Intermediate School, especially Technology and winter sport. However, my

favourite part is the Library and school hall. My goal this year is to improve

in reading and writing, playing as many different sports as possible and to

have fun during my time at Kirkwood. I will enjoy this leadership role as I am

a confident speaker, I can be a good role model and I am a good adviser.

Abseiling was my

favourite part of camp

because it was fun, challenging

and a new experience. I thought

that I wouldn’t go the whole way down

but I did! It was my goat at camp. A

lot of friends in my class cheered for

me which was great support. Some of

the activities which I enjoyed were

abseiling, Canadian canoeing,

crab hunting and feeding

the chicks.

My favourite part of

camp was the Canadian

canoeing, although feeding the

eels was a lot of fun too. Other

camp activities were: abseiling;

pitching tents; playing sports; bush

walking; periwinkle hunting and

beach time. I have to say I prefer

camping rather than playing

on electronics all day.

I enjoy outdoor

activities and

adventures. I also really

liked the food and awesome

activities which I was able to

do. The Canadian canoeing

was my favourite. I also

Everingham, 24, will fly to New

to Nebraska to take up work

as a musical director, conductor

and pianist at live theatre company

Post Playhouse.

“I am just really ready basically

for that next step and particularly

the centre of all that,” he said.

He will work at the company

his years of making music in

the city on Saturday.

“I am doing a repertoire I have

always loved, artists that inspired

me early on . . . artists like Billy

Joel and Elton John,” he said.

Destination USA – A Farewell

Concert will feature musicians,

singers and choirs he has worked

with over the years along with

songs from a wide range of musical

genres he has played.

Ensembles The Vocal Collective,

Tango La Luna and the

Canterbury Lawyers’ Choir will

perform along with a line-up of

well-known theatre performers in

the city.

Everingham said it is an honour

and overwhelming having so

many artists supporting the show.

Everingham has led an exciting

career working with companies

including The Court Theatre and

Showbiz Christchurch.

His original song Fractures:

In Memoriam was premiered at

Westminster Abbey, London, in

2015 and his other work has been

Another chapter

for Opawa Library

A DESIGN for the new building

to replace the earthquakedamaged

Opawa Library will be

finalised in the coming months.

The volunteer-run library has

operated out of interim

premises in the nearby

Opawa Children’s Library

building following

the closure of the battered

building in 2011.

Both communitymanaged

libraries will

move into the new

building on the corner of

Opawa Rd and Richardson


The new library will include

a public meeting space that is

available for bookings.

Opawa Public Library

president Carol Brizzell said the

library will provide “a fresh new

start for its members and for the

community itself.”

She said it will be “more than

John Filsell

a library”, becoming “a social


Ms Brizzell, who has been involved

with the library for more

than 35 years, also see benefits

in having both libraries

under one roof.

“If a child comes to the

library, so does a parent,

and not only does the

child get books but so too

does the parent get something,

whether books or

DVDs or even a catch-up

with friends,” she said.

Demolition work to remove

the earthquake-damaged

building is due to get under way

at the site, with the area to be

cleared in preparation for the

new build.

The work is expected to be

completed by the end of next

month before the design is

finalised. City council head of

community support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell

said work on the new building is

scheduled to start later this year.

“The original building was

more than 80 years old, and

deemed very costly to repair,”

Mr Filsell said.

“Our new plan means that

both the Opawa Library and the

children’s library can share a

modern, easily accessible building,”

he said.

“We have worked very closely

with the community to create

the right space. It will encourage

greater community connections

in a friendly neighbourhood


The design has been signed

off by a joint working group

made up of members of the


Community Board, council staff,

and representatives from the

Opawa Library and the Opawa

Children’s Library.

PLANS: A design for the new Opawa Library will be finalised in the next few months.

ACHIEVE: Tulsi Lathia, 17, will be the only Christchurch

representative at the developing leaders’ expedition in Vietnam

later this month. ​

Student chosen

for Vietnam trip

• By Jess Gibson

A CASHMERE resident will

be the only Christchurch

representative to go on a business

study trip to Vietnam.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School student

Tulsi Lathia, 17, was one of

12 students around New Zealand

selected by Young Enterprise NZ

for the two week long developing

leaders’ expedition trip at the end

of the month.

The expedition aims to expose

students to opportunities

after school and in the hub of

businesses in Asia.

Students were chosen based

on their passion for business,

interest in learning about another

culture and developing their confidence

and global perspective.

“I cannot wait to immerse in

the Vietnam business world and

network with entrepreneurs and

students who are as passionate

about business as I am,” said


“It will be an amazing experience

that will help me develop

new business skills and bring my

goals for the future into focus.”

Tulsi was also awarded the Innovative

Award at 2018 national

Girl Boss awards.

She was one of six chosen from

over 400 nominations of young

women​ who had “driven change

in their community.”

Tulsi invented a device that

could help locate people following

a natural disaster and

a second device that was a fire

detection, evacuation and control

system. Teacher manager of

young enterprise at Rangi Ruru,

Jacqui Griffith said the trip will

be a great opportunity for Tulsi.

Students will learn about the

culture and business community

in Ho Chi Minh City – which

will include visits to companies,

meeting with local entrepreneurs,

as well as those involved in some

of New Zealand’s trade relationships.

For a business challenge,

students will be put into mixed

teams with local students, issued

with a challenge to come up with

a solution that uses their innovative


“This is a wonderful

opportunity for students to

understand the local business

culture and trade environment

and spend time with like-minded

peers,” said Ms Griffith.

mitre 10 mega ferrymead

lend a helping hand

On Wednesday 20th March, the Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead team

lent a helping hand to the rudolf Steiner School in Opawa.

The team were on site bright and early at 6:30am to

get stuck into doing up an old shed, making it a more

suitable space for teaching. The building, an original

from when the school was first built, was in need of

a lot of love and care. In order to breathe life back

into the space the team got stuck

in whitewashing the newly plyed

walls, repainting the ceiling and

sanding and staining the exterior. A

new partition wall was built, a new

door with locks was hung and the

wooden floors were given a good

sand and new cladding was fixed

to the existing framing of the green

house. With 10 in the team and

some of the school parents lending

a hand we were able to get through

most of jobs by the end of a long 11

hour day. Mitre 10 MEGA Ferrymead

spokeswoman Leah Ingram said “We would not have

been able to complete this project without the help

of our many suppliers who came on board. From ply,

paint and lighting to the cladding for the green house

and tools to complete the job. Thank you.”

dropped off at site.

On behalf of the Christchurch Rudolf Steiner School and the Parent & Child group, we would like to take this

opportunity to thank you for the transformation that took place on the horticulture building at the centre of our

school garden.

The building was one of the founding buildings from when the school was first established, and with your help

and generosity new life has been breathed into it. It has gone from being an old and somewhat tired building,

housing gardening equipment, to a clean and beautiful multipurpose building, not only for its primary use as the

horticulture lesson space but now also to house our Parent & Child Group for children ages 0-4. In addition it has

the potential for it to be used by our school community as a music recital room, community craft group sessions,

workshops and even a gallery exhibition evenings.

You may think that you have just provided the people and the materials, but actually you have rejuvenated this

area of the school and inspired families to appreciate and engage more fully in the incredible garden resource we

have. Different groups have come together to make this huge project happen, and ensured that the parent and

child group has a home.

This project with you has been a catalyst for positive community engagement and the change makes this building

now multipurpose learning space.

Heartfelt thanks from us all.

The Marian College Board is pleased

to share the Bishop’s decision to

relocate Marian College to north west

Christchurch on a three hectare site.

Our new College will neighbour St

Joseph’s Primary School on land

bordered by Vagues Road, Main North

Road and Northcote Road, with the main

entrance off Lydia Street.

The new school is projected to cost in

excess of $20 million and students are

expected to start in February 2023.

The Bishop said finding a new home for

Marian College has always been one of

his main priorities. The purchase of the

former Foodstuffs warehouse property on

Northcote Road has made this possible.

He indicated scoping and design work

will begin ready for when possession of

the land takes place in April 2021.

The news is exciting and very positive

for Marian College and the changes are

going to further strengthen and grow our

Catholic community.

Thank you to the Bishop on behalf of

Marian College for his commitment to

our future, and to the Catholic Diocese

of Christchurch for its steady support

over the years.

The Catholic Bishop of Christchurch, Paul

Martin and Marian College Principal Mary-

Lou Davidson visiting Marian College’s

new Papanui site.

Thank you also to our school community

for your loyalty and patience and to all

the schools, businesses and communities

who have supported Marian since the

earthquakes. It means a lot to us.

We look forward to the challenges the

next four years bring us and to having

closer working relationships with St

Joseph’s School Papanui and our brother

school St Bede’s College.

Tātou ko Mere e whakapono ana

With Mary in faith

Jan Paterson

Marian College Board of Trustees Chair


What will the new school look like?

It is too early to say just yet. What we do know is that we intend to ensure the Catholic

special character, values, heritage and story of Marian is incorporated and reflected in our

new school’s grounds and buildings. While we are fortunate to be getting a new school –

the heart of Marian College will remain the same.

Our new Forde Block (Social Sciences and Careers), which opened at the beginning

of this year, combines the best of traditional and open-plan classroom settings within a

multi-functional and sound-proof learning environment. So far, the feedback from students

and teachers has been positive, so it’s likely our new school will have similarly designed


Will there be opportunities for input into the new school?

Yes. We will be engaging with our school community and gathering ideas in coming


Why is it taking until 2023 to get a new school?

The newly purchased site is currently tenanted and the lease expires in 2021. The Catholic

Diocese of Christchurch will then take possession of the land. In the meantime, there will

be valuable time for consultation, scoping and design work, before construction starts.

Will travel to and from the new school be more difficult?

Our new site is conveniently located on main arterial roads including QEII Drive and the

ring road to Eastern and seaside suburbs, Main North Road through to North Canterbury

as well as the Orbiter bus route. Connecting cycleways include the Papanui Parallel

Cycleway, Northern Line Cycleway and QEII Shared Cycleway.

By the time our new school is ready, the Christchurch Northern Corridor will be open. It is

expected this road will significantly reduce traffic volumes on Main North Road – by up to

50 per cent. It will also create an opportunity for the city council to make changes to Main

North Road resulting in improved public transport journey times.

Access to transport is an important part of our planning. We are confident that our families

will have suitable transport options for students travelling from more than 30 of our feeder

primary schools - families living in Central and East Christchurch, the seaside suburbs and

North Canterbury.

My daughter is currently a senior student at Marian – will she feel left out?

A wonderful aspect of Marian College is how supportive and understanding our school

community is through periods of change. We often say: “once a Marian girl, always a

Marian girl”. Marian College will be making every effort to include all students in the

shaping of our new school - regardless of whether they will be attending. We are asking

past students and staff of Marian College and also our founding schools St Mary’s College

(Christchurch) and McKillop College, to provide valuable input into what the new school

will look like.

Arawa girls dominate junior NZ squad

• By Gordon Findlater

ARAWA CANOE Club kayakers

will make up the entire New

Zealand female junior squad at

the world junior championships

in Romania in August.

Last week Canoe Racing New

Zealand announced that Arawa

members Olivia Brett, Pieta Luthi,

Tilly Pritchard, Jess Nisbett

and Cass Hetherington will

make up the five-strong junior

women’s squad.

“We’re wrapped. It’s a culmination

of a lot of hard work from

these kids and their coach Paul

Fidow,” said Arawa president

Stuart Clark.

“They’re training nine or more

times a week with five or six of

those being at six o’clock in the

morning in the gym and on the

river. The Avon River is not the

most pleasant place to be at that

time of the day sometimes.”

Brett will compete in the K1

200 and will team up with Luthi

in the K2 500. Luthi, Pritchard,

Lisbett and Hetherington will

make up the K4 500. Pritchard

is also being considered for the

K1 500.

In February the girls dominated

the under-18 division at

the national championships

which helped Arawa claim the

top club honours. Brett was the

most dominant athlete at the

championships winning five

gold medals in the under-18 K1
