Public vocal about options

for contentious intersection

• By Jess Gibson

SUBMISSIONS HAVE come

crashing in on a proposal

to upgrade a contentious

Bishopdale intersection.

The city council received

261 public submissions

by 9am on Friday on two

options to improve safety at

the Breens, Harewood and

Gardiners Rds junction.

The feedback arrived

within the first four days of

the consultation opening

date. The closing date for

submissions is set for June 10.

To compare, the city

council received 247

submissions on its draft

Annual Plan over a month.

Harewood Ward city

councillor Aaron Keown

said the quick influx of

submissions was “a pretty

clear indication from the

public that they were well

and truly ready for this

consultation.”

Option one, which is

the city council’s preferred

option, is to make Gardiners

and Breens Rds a left-turn

in and left-turn out only

by closing the median on

Harewood Rd.

consultation out for the intersection of Breens, Harewood and Gardiners Rds.

TOO MUCH traffic and poor or tricky

intersections tend to get the gander up.

On page 1 today we explain why.

Submissions on the long running saga

over the Breens, Harweood, Gardiners

intersection have come flooding in.

Harewood Ward city councillor Aaron Keown has been

trying to get changes at the intersection for sometime now. I’m

sure it helped his campaign at the last local body elections – and

no doubt his unwavering commitment to the cause will assist

him again this time around.

Jamie, sorry James Gough, wants to sell off the library

No doubt there will be strong views from both ends of the

But will he stand for mayor? I think he might.

Standing with our community

and attending the commemoration

services around the electorate

on ANZAC Day to honour those

who made the ultimate sacrifice

for our country is a part of my role

that I value. This, to me, is what

it means to be a New Zealander

- to acknowledge that what we

are today is built on the sacrifices

of those who came before. We

have learnt that peace may be

fragile but the spirit of those brave

soldiers remains.

Waimakariri electorate is well

served by our dedicated volunteer fire

men and women. It was a privilege

as local MP to visit local volunteer

fire men and women on International

Firefighters’ Day to say thank you

and to acknowledge their families and

employers, who also sacrifice their

time when the alarm goes.

Call for murals to prevent tags

• By Jess Gibson

A COMMUNITY board

member wants to see murals

replace graffiti in Papanui.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member John Stringer

said he wants to prevent regularly

targeted surfaces by covering

them with art.

“I think it would be a really

constructive solution to make it

a feature of the community,” Mr

Stringer said.

Mr Stringer

suggested the city

council investigate

options for a

mural on the toilet

block wall at St

John

Stringer

James Park during

a board meeting

on Friday.

The request

came after two graffiti attacks at

the same site in a short period of

time.

Mr Stringer asked the city

council to paint over the graffiti

on the side of the toilet block two

weeks ago.

He said the city council

promptly painted over the

tags but the wall was struck

again “immediately” by a

similar tag before the paint had

dried.

A city council spokesperson

said graffiti has been covered at

UNSIGHTLY: The toilet block wall at St James Park was recently tagged. Soon after the graffiti

was painted over it was struck again with a similar tag.

St James Park five times in 12

months which has cost $1000.

“It’s disappointing to see this at

St James Park because it’s a really

nice area and we haven’t had a lot

of graffiti there, so I hope it’s not

an opening trend,” Mr Stringer

said.

Mr Stringer advocated for a

mural at Aratupu Preschool and

Nursery on Harewood Rd in

January.

“That site gets attacked all the

time.”

Staff have liaised with Aratupu

Preschool and Nursery and recommended

that the pre-school

applies for a funding grant

towards a mural.

Community board member Jo

Byrne asked that the city council

investigate a mural in the Innes

Ward on the back wall of the

Mairehau Library and one on the

power box near the library.

“It’s not in great condition so

we thought having something

nice would be good,” Ms Byrne

said.

She said the process is “early

days” but the community board

will continue to discuss the idea

with residents and library staff to

make sure everybody wants the

murals.

A city council spokesperson

said research suggests that painting

multi-coloured designs or

murals on surfaces will discourage

graffiti as tagging is more

difficult.

“Such mural projects, especially

when they involve local

artists, community groups and

high school students, have solved

many graffiti problems.”

The spokesperson said the cost

of a mural depends on the size

and how it is executed.

“It depends on who they are,

their experience and reputation

and whether or not they are

working with communities to

create the work, with material

and equipment hire costs usually

come on top of that,” the spokesperson

said.

“Roughly we say starting

around $80 per sq m for an artist

to develop and implement a

mural.”

CAR PARKS REMOVED

Ten car parks will be removed

on at the bend on Willowview

Drive to improve visibility. The

Papanui-Innes Community

Board approved the change

after residents raised safety

concerns about the area, which

is near the entrance to the Styx

River Conservation Reserve.

The changes will allow two-way

traffic flow through the bend

and improve sight lines for the

pedestrian crossing point on the

bend. The city council contacted

affected property owners and

residents were advised of the

recommended options and all

were in favour of the proposal.

Eco Styx Mill and Papanui Mitre

Meetings to discuss intersection

•From page 1

This option has an estimated

cost of $400,000 to implement

and the city council has stated it

will likely be eligible for funding

subsidy from the Government.

Option two is to install traffic

lights at the intersection.

The predicted cost of installing

traffic signals is $1.2 million and

would unlikely be eligible for

Government subsidies.

But city councillor Aaron Keown

said the budget is “not really

comparable.”

Cr Keown has been campaigning

to have traffic lights installed

at the intersection for three

years.

He said the preferred option

would introduce major issues by

cutting off Harewood Rd and

forcing people to drive around

the block or make dangerous

U-turns.

“The city council is putting 13

sets of brand new traffic lights on

one cycleway,” Cr Keown said.

“You can’t say we can’t afford it

when they are more than happy

to put that many traffic lights on

a cycleway.”

City councillor Phil Clearwater

said he had a view that there

were “far more” unsafe intersections

in Christchurch which

should be taken into account

when considering traffic light

installation.

“It’s extremely important that

in council we do our job to fix

[higher priority] ones first,” said

Cr Clearwater.

“However, I think it’s important

that I keep an open mind

when that consultation comes to

council,” he said.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman

Sam MacDonald said the

board has “continually advocated

for the city council to address the

dangers at the intersection.”

“We’re pleased to see traffic

lights as one of the options, but

we will wait to hear the views of

the community,” Mr MacDonald

said.

SAFETY

UPGRADE:

More than 260

submissions

were sent into

the city council

in relation to

a Bishopdale

intersection

in less than a

week.

The city council will hold two

public information sessions

which will start with a 20min

presentation, followed by the opportunity

to speak to the project

team.

The first session will be held at

Breens Intermediate School Hall

at 85 Breens Rd, Bishopdale, on

May 21 from 5.30 until 7pm.

Shirley Bastin – I read the

divert on to Crofton Rd and

certainly create another problem.

installation of a median strip disallowing

The only realistic solution to also

avoid endangering pedestrians

with a crossing and potential crash

by motorists utilising a turning bay

is to make it a controlled intersection

by the installation of traffic

lights. This would make turning

in either direction from the three

roads a much safer option.

Bryan Lawrence – It will

be absolutely crazy to close the

only safe way is to install traffic

lights there.

The traffic lights at the Gardiners

HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of James Gough’s

idea? Email your views to Jess.Gibson@starmedia.kiwi

Gough wants to look at selling libraries

• By Julia Evans

POTENTIAL mayoral candidate

and Fendalton Ward city

councillor James Gough wants to

investigate the possibility of selling

off libraries and service centres.

Cr Gough said a conversation

should be had over whether

suburban libraries and service

centres, excluding Turanga, would

be a better asset if they were sold

to private investors, with the city

council as long-term lease holders.

The value of city council’s library

and service centre network

is $65.3 million.

“It would realise significant

revenue in the short-term to

assist with paying down debt

and reducing rates – but it would

also be essential that council

expenditure is significantly

reduced too,” he said.

However, Cr Gough said it

would have to be paired with

pared back capital and operational

spending to have the best

outcome to reduce rates.

“The proposal would need to be

a hand-in-glove approach where

increased revenue in the shortterm

was coupled with a significant

reduction in capital and

operational spending as well.”

Cr Gough has been a proponent

of asset sales.

But in September the city

council voted against a proposed

review into how much could

ASSETS: (Clockwise) – Fendalton, Bishopdale, Shirley and Upper Riccarton libraries.

be made from selling stakes in

businesses such as the Lyttelton

Port Company and broadband

provider Enable.

It is a conversation starter echoed

by the Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce in its

Annual Plan based off a similar

model in Perth.

“I think there are opportunities

for the council to take a good, hard

look at some of the assets that they

do own and work out whether

or not they need to own them or

whether there is a different model

for that operation,” chief executive

Leeann Watson said.

Ms Watson said it should be

looked at it on a case by case basis

– there should not be a “hard

and fast” model, which was supported

by Mayor Lianne Dalziel.

“I used the example of the

Linwood Library being in the

Eastgate Mall and the fact that

we jointly own this building with

Ngai Tahu,” Ms Dalziel said.

“It is enabling of people to

access the library in the same

hours that the mall is open.”

Cr Gough is considering running

for mayor.

“I’ll probably make an announcement

in the near future,”

he said.

The People’s Choice chairman

Keir Leslie, which opposes asset

sales, said libraries were a core

council business.

“The ideal that we would sell

off libraries in our own city . . .

would be a bad deal for the ratepayer

in the long run.”

Chase Commercial real estate

agent Brendan Chase said the

buildings would be “highly

saleable and sought after” with

a reliable and safe tenant in the

city council.

“The question to ask is are

those libraries going to be required

in the long-term, if they

are you’ll pay for them over and

over again,” Mr Chase said.

Cr Gough said the projected

rates increase of about 50 per

cent in the next 10 years is an

unsustainable “house of cards”

that would “epically fail.”

“Average incomes are not rising

anywhere near this quickly

so the system is fundamentally

broken.”

Association

to remain

informal

• By Jess Gibson

THE REDWOOD Business

and Residents’ Association will

remain informal until it gains

more momentum.

There were 16 attendees at

the group’s second meeting last

week, including business owners,

residents and Papanui-Innes

Community Board members.

Donna Brenssell was involved

in starting the association up last

month.

She said members would like

more people to get involved and

for the group to decide on specific

issues or goals they would

like to work on before officiating

the association. One issue which

was discussed at the meeting was

the lack of proposed planning

for Redwood in the city council’s

Long Term Plan.

Mrs Brenssell said the group

also thought about focussing on

the impact that the Northern

Corridor will have.

She said the group will continue

to meet monthly and will

appoint members to roles once

the group strengthens.

The next meeting will be

held on June 11 at 7pm at the

Christchurch Function Centre,

Redwood Hotel.

Bid to get fee dropped unlikely

• By Jess Gibson

A HAREWOOD couple may

have failed in their bid to have

an $1800 resource consent

fee waived over troublesome

trees.

Graeme and Diane Barber

have asked the city council

to drop the $1800 fee, so they

can apply to have six 16m oak

trees in Pasadena Reserve cut

down.

The couple who live in Cam Pl

have been battling the city council

for 10 years over the trees,

which they say block the sun to

their property and impact their

wellbeing.

But a response, which Mr

Barber received from the city

council last week, indicated that

a waiver was unlikely because

the trees are more than 10m tall

and in good health.

“There’s nothing in there that

gives me any hope there would

be a fee waiver,” he said.

“I’m not feeling very good

about it.”

Mr Barber wanted the fees

waived as he believed that paying

for the application put the blame

on residents for something that

was not their fault.

“The decisions that the city

council has made in the past

hasn’t considered other people in

the long term,” Mr Barber said.

He said when he shared

the information with his

neighbours, who are also

affected, their reaction was

“horror.”

“At this point in time,

everything is lumped on

the applicant who had no

responsibility in the decisionmaking

process and is feeling

guilty by association,” Mr Barber

said.

He said he will figure out how

to move forward in the coming

months.

But Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman Sam MacDonald said

it was a “tricky situation” as the

waived fee would end up costing

ratepayers.

“We sympathise with Mr

Barber over the situation, but

the reality is that if there was

an exception to be made in

one case, ratepayers could end

up subsidising the removal of

trees right across the city,” Mr

BATTLE: Graeme

Barber asked the

city council to

drop a resource

consent fee so

he and his wife

Diane can apply

to have six oak

trees cut down.

MacDonald said.

“It’s not an easy situation at all.

“Down the line, there is

also paying for the actual trees

to be removed, which would

be bloody expensive,” Mr

MacDonald said.

The $1800 fee for resource

consent is only a deposit.

The final fees are the

actual costs of processing the

removal of the trees and there

may be a refund or a further

invoice.

Young piper to attend national and global competitions

• By Jess Gibson

Tuesday May 14 2019

A FULL-BLOWN line-up of

competitions is in store for

award-winning piper Campbell

Wilson.

The 16-year-old St Andrew’s

College student will

take part in the Colin Craig

Claidmeamh’mor solo piping

competition in Palmerston North

on Saturday.

The competition is an invitational

event for the top pipers in

New Zealand.

Campbell will then travel to

Dunedin two weeks later to

compete in the annual Queen’s

Birthday solo competitions,

where he will compete in the A

grade.

After that, his skills will take

him to Scotland in August

to compete in under-18

and under-23 age groups of

competition in Oban and

Inverness.

Campbell said he is “very excited”

to return to Scotland.

He has been once before

when he competed with the St

Andrew’s College Pipe Band at

the World Pipe Band Championships

and stayed on for two weeks

afterwards to compete in solo

competitions.

Since Campbell began piping

when he was nine-years-old, he

has achieved a long list of highlights

in his career.

He made history at the

Hastings Highland Games

in April when he became the

youngest ever winner of the

New Zealand Gold Medal for

Piobaireachd.

Campbell was named New

Zealand Young Piper of the Year

in October, is titled the youngest

ever winner of the Silver Chanter

March, Strathspey and Reel event

and won the under-21 New Zealand

Championship Hornpipe

and Jig in January.

During his Scotland trip in

August, Campbell will be travelling

his father, Greg Wilson, who

doubles as his tutor.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

Mr Wilson is classified as one

of the top pipers in the world.

He has won 14 Gold Clasp

Piobaireachd competitions – an

event which pipers can only

compete in if they have won the

New Zealand Gold Medal for

Piobaireachd.

Mr Wilson has also had victory

at Bratach Gorm in London

three times, has won the premier

double march, Strathspey and

Reel multiple times, and has also

been New Zealand Solo Piping

Champion on multiple occasions,

to name a few.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity

to travel such a great

distance doing what I love with

my number one role model. He

is a world class piper, and he is

an absolutely wonderful teacher,”

Campbell said.

Mr Wilson said it is “very satisfying”

seeing Campbell do well

at piping.

“I’m absolutely proud of him,

he’s done very well from a young

age,” said Mr Wilson.

writes about

how Mother’s Day began

History tells us celebrations

related to mothers have existed

throughout the world for

thousands of years, though

the Christian celebration of

Mothering Sunday was more

about the mother church than a

celebration of women.

What is probably unknown is

the woman who campaigned for

our modern version of Mother’s

Day would later denounce the

commercialisation of this event.

It took Anna Jarvis six years of

campaigning in the United States

to have a day set aside to honour

mothers or as she put it, “the person

who has done more for you

than anyone else in the world.”

Her own mother, Ann Reeves

Jarvis, had been a peace activist

caring for the wounded in the

Civil War no matter their politics

or which side they fought for.

Then after the war, she began

clubs to address public health

issues and helping women to

knowledgeably care for their children.

When her mother passed

away Anna realised, in spite of

the positive impact women have

on society, their work for their

children and the community was

often overlooked.

Anna’s Mother’s Day was not a

commercial event, but was about

celebrating the achievements of

women and further reminding

them of their power and what

can be accomplished when

women and mothers come

together for a good cause.

value of Anna’s message.

Mother’s Day has become

a date for launching political

causes. The wife of Martin Luther

King, Coretta used Mother’s

Day in 1968 to host a march

in support of underprivileged

women and children.

Then in the 1970s women’s

groups gathered on this day to

highlight the need for equal

rights for women and access to

child care. On Friday at 12.30pm,

Christchurch Women’s Club

Toastmasters is holding an open

day at the Village Church on the

corner of Frank St and Papanui

Rd to celebrate the influence of

mothers and women in our lives.

CWC Toastmasters supports

women to succeed in any

venture giving them the skills to

communicate their vision clearly

and with confidence.

Additional

car parks

in Papanui

REDUNDANT BUS stops in

Papanui will be replaced by car

parks.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board approved the

installation of 10min parks on

Langdons Rd outside Papanui

High School and 120min parks

on Chapel St north of Harewood

Rd on Friday.

The city council proposed

the changes after a bus route

changed and no longer used the

roads.

The report said additional

parking would benefit people

using Papanui Library, Papanui

High School and Northlands

Shopping Centre. It also said the

additional 120min parks would

benefit nearby businesses.

Papanui High School representatives

were advised of the

recommended option and supported

the proposal.

No consultation with was undertaken

with property owners

on Chapel St before the decision

was made, but they will now

be informed of the approved

changes.

The parks will be installed

around four weeks after a

contractor receives the request.

Rangi Ruru students in raucous production

TWENTY-SIX Rangi Ruru Girl’s

School students will take on the

roles of 40 different characters

in the upcoming high-energy

production Wheeler’s Luck.

The first showing of the 80min

theatre piece is tomorrow at

7.30pm at the Merivale Lane

theatre and will run every night

at the same time until Saturday.

Lying somewhere between

Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk

Wood and the Ian Mune film

Came A Hot Friday, Wheeler’s

Luck is a raucous tale of the

battle between preservation and

development in a small rural seaside

community.

When local landowner, Nora

Cox dies, leaving her prime

coastal property to the people

of the small town of Cox Point,

Mayor Duncan Sanderson,

enlists a developer to build a golf

course and casino on her land.

When postie and environmentalist

Sharon Dickle discovers

that Nora left the point to all the

residents, she begins a campaign

to preserve Nora’s place as a bird

sanctuary.

Year 13 student, Sarah Lawrence,

who plays Lydia Cox, was

accepted into the Court Theatre

Youth Company at the end of last

year.

She is also the regional representative

at the Sheilah Winn

National Shakespeare Schools’

Production, workshops and

performances in Wellington this

September.

Year 13 student and head girl,

Rachel McSweeney, will play

Johnny Wheeler.

However, there are no “leads”

in this production.

“It’s a true ensemble cast,”

Sarah said.

“No one character is on stage

any more than another.”

Sarah said the time commitment

from everyone is significant,

including rehearsing during

the recent school holidays.

With extra involvement in a

number of orchestral groups,

Sarah said she “doesn’t sleep

much.”

“I would rather be doing this

during the holidays though; it’s

what I love.”

Rangi Ruru’s director of

theatre arts, Peter Rutherford,

said presenting New Zealand

work is important to him and the

students.

“We hear our own voices, see

our own history and characters,”

he said.

“I think that’s really important

“That’s not to say there

isn’t a place for work from

overseas but we have such great

material written by Kiwi’s

and about our own country;

we should share it as much as

possible,” he said.

planting day

successful

• By Jess Gibson

MORE THAN 1500 native trees

and shrubs were planted in the

Styx Mill Conservation Reserve in

Northwood last Sunday.

About 120 people volunteered

for the community planting run

by Trees for Canterbury, including

students, park rangers, members

of the Styx Living Laboratory

Trust, a scout group and residents.

Trees for Canterbury project

co-ordinator Robin Stove said the

day went “fantastically.”

“It was great having people

from diverse backgrounds there,”

he said.

The main large species planted

were Kahikatea and Totara

trees and there was a mixture of

smaller trees like Ribbonwood,

Lacebark, Flax and Cabbage trees,

among others.

The seedlings were all sourced

and donated by Trees for

Canterbury, who gather the native

tree species from areas such as

Riccarton Bush.

Trees for Canterbury has been

planting in the reserve, as well as

other sites, for about 20 years as

part of a regeneration project to

plant two million native trees in

Former UC stars represent New Zealand

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER ST Andrew’s College

hooker Shilo Klein and former

Christ’s College centre Dallas

McLeod have both been selected

to represent the New Zealand

side at next month’s World

Rugby Under-20 Championship.

The pair were named in the

squad to travel to Argentina to

play in the tournament along

with five other Crusaders region

players – Cullen Grace, Leicester

Faingaanuku, Fergus Burke,

Fletcher Newell and Tamaiti

Williams.

Klein and McLeod both learnt

of their selection following

their second place finish

at the Oceania Rugby U20

Championship in Australia

earlier this month.

“You work for a long time

to try to give yourself an

opportunity like this. To get it

you’re proud and I’m just really

grateful to all the people who

have helped me get to this point.

I’m really excited to try and put

in some performances that I

can be really proud of,” said

Klein.

The 20-year-old pointed out

his coaches at St Andrew’s as

the major influence in installing

a belief he could achieve big

things in rugby if he put his

mind to it.

“Year 13 was a bit of a turning

point for me. I decided I was

going to put my foot down and

really have a crack at it,” he said.

The High School Old Boys

player got his first taste of rugby

at the Sumner club before

attending St Andrew’s. His drive

to succeed is something he hopes

will go well beyond the U20

world cup.

“It’s a dream of mine to be a

Crusader and be an All Black,

they’re always long term goals

that I keep in the back of my

head because they motivate me

to get up every day and train.”

Meanwhile, McLeod’s roots

lay in Methven. The 20-year-old

played for the Methven club

before receiving a scholarship to

play at Christ’s in his final year of

secondary school.

“That definitely helped and

then getting the opportunity to

get into the Crusaders academy

is probably the main thing that’s

helped me get access to good

coaches and to have a lot of

other people around me who are

chasing the same thing,” said

McLeod.

Last year, McLeod was named

Canterbury’s under-19 player of

the year.

The New Zealand squad will

assemble in Mount Maunganui

on May 26 before departing to

Merivale.

So much Moore than

just a drycleaners

Moores Drycleaners on Papanui Road

is so much more than just a drycleaning

business - it is part of the fabric of Merivale

itself. Their terrific customer service,

expertise and highly-professional standards

have seen them succeed on the same spot

for over half a century. In fact, it is the

oldest business still operating in the same

location in Merivale, and also is the oldest

family-owned and operated drycleaners

in the whole of

Canterbury.

What makes it

such a local success?

Owner Greg Moore’s

father began Moores

Drycleaning back in

1961 and Greg joined

him straight out of

school. Having been

there ever since, his

own knowledge is

unparalleled, and it is

the focus on meeting

the needs of customers

that makes them stand

out. These days, his daughter has joined the

team, making her the third generation to work

in the business.

Their focus is on providing a terrific

service to local clients and meeting all their

drycleaning needs. Whether you are spring

cleaning and want to freshen up all your

drapes, duvets and bedding, or have toughto-remove

spots, they are on hand to help.

They will make sure that garments such as

suits and dresses look as good as new when

they return them to you, and they are experts

at working with delicate fabrics in evening

gowns and cocktail dresses. They are also

the go-to drycleaners for wedding dresses,

recommended by many of the region’s bridal

salons to their new brides. In fact, they are

just about the largest drycleaners for wedding

dresses in the south island.

In spite of their long tradition in this

industry, Moores Drycleaning have moved

with the times. They now have an ecocleaning

machine which uses a solution of

plant extracts as its cleaning agent which is

far friendlier to the environment. In fact,

Tennis scholarship for

Burnside HS student

SPORT

SIX YEARS of

determination and hard

work has paid off for

14-year-old tennis player

Alkmini Giannakogiorgou

of Papanui.

The year 10 Burnside

High School student has

been awarded a $1000

scholarship by the Burnside

Park Tennis Club for

showing potential and

demonstrating positive

values.

The junior scholarship is

a way to acknowledge New

Zealand ranked junior

members and give them

an opportunity to travel to

gain further experiences.

“Tennis was the only

sport that wasn’t driven

by my desire to win but

by the way it made me feel

when I was on the court.

Jeff Brightwell, my tennis

coach, gave me a real sense

of purpose including setting

small goals along the

way,” Alkmini said.

Alkmini practices for

four hours daily, which

has earned results including

placing fourth at the

nationals, being selected

for Canterbury representative

teams and winning

regional tournaments.

Later this year she

plans to take her tennis

to another level as she

travels to Germany with

her coach to train and play

on clay.

“By learning to play on a

different surface and train

with a different intensity I

will be opened up to new

aspects of the game that

will improve my playing

style,” Alkmini said.

“I love this sport with

all my heart and I am determined

to keep pushing

myself as far as I can go,”

she said.

DETERMINED: Year

10 Burnside High

School student Alkmini

Giannakogiorgou’s

hard work paid of at a

recent tournament in

Wellington, where she

won the 16 and under

girls category. ​

SCHOLARSHIPS & SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

All new for Avonside

at Ōrua Paeroa

A new school, a

new location, and a

new uniform! What

a fabulous year for

Avonside Girls’ High

school as a new

chapter in the school’s

90 plus year history

is written this year.

Avonside Girls’ High

School moved into its new home on

Travis Road at the beginning of term

2, taking its traditions, culture, history

and values along with a focus on

working with every student to help her

identify her strengths and develop her

talents so that she can flourish in her

future.

Just over 1000 girls moved onto the

new site in Travis Road to experience

learning in New Zealand’s newest

secondary school buildings. The

campus which also includes a satellite

unit of Ferndale School, is New

Zealand’s first ever co-location of a state

girls’ school and a state boys’ school

sharing the same site and some key

facilities and yet delivering teaching

and learning within their own singlesex

learning environments.

One look inside the impressive

entrance foyer reveals an exciting

campus with fabulous facilities to

enhance learning for students.

In the front section of the school

lie the shared facilities, boasting the

reception and administrative centre

for both schools, a spacious library, a

cultural space, two theatres, a cafeteria

with indoor and outdoor seating, and

student kitchen facilities alongside a

commercial kitchen for teaching senior

Hospitality courses.

The design of the school then

separates into two separate schools each

designed around its own courtyard.

The school is organised by learning

areas, denoting the school’s support

of subject discipline knowledge

and skills, yet with adjacencies that

provide opportunities for learning to

be connected across learning areas for

students.

Avonside supports the development

of the whole student with a strong

ako programme delivered within a

vertical form structure and wonderful

opportunities for involvement beyond

classroom learning time. The superb

facilities in the new campus certainly

enhance those opportunities for our

students.

Avonside Girls’ High School has

embraced this opportunity to provide

this exciting new brand of 21st century

style single-sex education – the best of

both worlds!

We welcome interested students and

their families to come and visit the

campus on our Open Night.

Shirley Boys’ High

School at Ōrua Paeroa

Finally after 8 years of

unstinting effort, Shirley

Boys’ is in its new home,

one that features state

of the art facilities for

teaching and learning in

the 21st Century.

The new campus

features a Performing

Arts Centre, full size all

weather turf, sports fields, the largest school

gymnasium in the city as well as traditional

classrooms and modern flexible spaces

designed to meet the needs of all of its 1250

young Shirley men.

Shirley Boys’ High School,

Kiwi Soul Global Vision

At Shirley Boys’ High School, students

are encouraged to participate in a vast

array of sporting and cultural activities

and in all of these areas they are expected

to prepare themselves for action and

success on the world stage, while also

being encouraged to retain and strengthen

their own cultural roots.

Shirley Boys’ High School encourages

students to strive for personal excellence.

Learning occurs both inside and outside

the classroom, reflecting the desire of the

school to focus on teaching the whole

person to ensure a lifelong desire for

self-improvement. At Shirley Boys’ this

is known as “BTB – Better than Before”.

BTB leads to achievement, which can

be as modest as getting fit for a sport or

improving a test score or learning to sing

in a choir. BTB can also be as spectacular

as achieving a Premier New Zealand

Academic Scholar Award (awarded to the

Top 10 academic students in NZ).

We look forward to welcoming

prospective students and families to our

Open Night, Thursday 23 May at 6.30-

8.30pm.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

Tyres, rims and even

great coffee

Word of mouth is the best

recommendation for any business, and there

is a raft of customers happy to recommend

JCM Direct Tyres in Middleton. The

independent, family-owned and operated

business supplies tyres, mags and rims and

it is clear from their feedback that they

provide ‘outstanding customer service,’

‘really know what they are doing,’ and even

provide ‘tasty coffee.’

Reviews like these are hard-won, with

the emphasis being on making sure they

go the extra mile to really meet the needs

of the client. As an independent dealer,

they are not tied to a specific brand.

Instead, they will look at your vehicle,

your budget and your driving style to

provide you with what you need instead

of what the franchise wants you to have.

This can be brand new tyres such as Pirelli,

Continental, GT Radial and Nankang, or

high end, almost-new second hand tyres

in mint condition, often the same brand

names as the new options. The JCM team

wants to know their customers are leaving

them with their vehicles, from caravans to

European

Car Owners

utes, that are safe on the roads.

They will give you their honest opinion

and expertise about what you need too.

It could be more cost effective in the long

run to spend a little more a quality tyre and

reduce the risk of punctures on the Garden

City’s rebuild roads, and if you do have a

puncture, they can repair it quickly and

efficiently.

It is not only tyres – they supply rims

from the 1930s to the present day. If you

are lucky enough to own a classic vehicle,

you will know how difficult it can be to

find authentic parts, and the JCM team will

help you source what you need.

They also provide alloy wheels, spare

wheels plus wheel and tyre combo packages

to make their excellent products even more

affordable. They are even able to help you

with finance options.

Open six days a week, you can find

them at 8c Birmingham Drive on the

corner with Hands Road. Check them

out on Facebook.com/JCMDirect, or

visit JCMDirect.co.nz to see what their

family can do to help your family.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A decision to paint double yellow

But the Banks Peninsula Community

The changes are designed to try

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, seeing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

A report said there are two

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Elite Meats owner Corey

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

place”, a place to come and relax, eat, enjoy,

and never leave the table hungry.
