It’s a remarkable turnaround

for the former Christchurch

Boys’ High School head boy,

who fought off Burkitt’s non-

Hodgkin’s lymphoma, only to

struggle to walk unassisted after

chemotherapy damaged the

nerves in his legs.

But true to form, and his

incredible resilience, in February

– three years after his initial

diagnosis – the 21-year-old took

on the three-part 140km bike

ride to cross the finish line in

New Brighton alongside two

of his ex-school mates, James

Dunbar and Dalton Ewing.

“The feeling of

accomplishment was incredible.

I was so humbled to have been

able to be a part of an event with

so much history and meaning

to the Canterbury community

– and also fairly grateful that I

made it,” Bailey said.

Almost as quickly as he

crossed the finish line, like many

again next year.

challenge of completing the

243km course in the two-day

individual event.

“Even the day before at the

registration you start to feel

how special the event is and

how much it will mean to you to

achieve the Kathmandu Coast

to Coast, and then when you do

cross that finish line, you just

want to do it again,” he said.

“It’s a tough race, there’s no

doubt about it, but having grown

up in Christchurch and seen

family members and friends do

it for years, I just want to be able

to say I did that too, the whole

thing on my own. I went from

one side of the South Island to

the other and it was all me.”

Having recently completed the

Tour de Cure, a 1400km bike

race in Australia, Bailey says

he is comfortable with the bike

and run legs of the event, but

mastering the kayak, including

earning his grade two certificate,

will be a challenge.

“It’s probably my biggest

challenge to learn the kayak,

but I’ve got more than 200 days

to get myself sorted, so I’m

confident I’ve got enough time

to get myself organised. And

there are some fantastic people

around that I’m sure will help

me out along the way.”

Now in remission for the

third year, Bailey is also looking

forward to continuing to

demonstrate there is life after an

illness like cancer.

“I’d like to show survivors that

they can go on to better things.

That cancer doesn’t define them.

I often meet parents whose

kids are going through cancer

and they’re incredibly worried

about how their kids might

come out the other side from a

physical standpoint, and I guess

I’m walking proof that life can

be good, it can be great, and it

shouldn’t hold you back.”

Asset sales

under scrutiny

community board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

wanted to clarify the group’s

position following an article in

Western News.

It indirectly quoted city councillor

Vicki Buck as saying the group

Cr Buck’s direct quote was:

“They’re looking at asset sales.”

Mrs Broughton said the city

said Mrs Broughton, who has

ones are definitely off the table.”

She said assets like the airport

bring in a return for the city and

benefited ratepayers. However, other

groups of assets Independent Citizens

wanted to look at to see if it made

more financial sense to sell them, she

said. “The two poorly performing

to their unique stage presence

Combining blues guitar and

classic old school rock influences,

the band placed an emphasis on

“We love very theatrical

performances and it’s natural

for all of our personalities to be

more eccentric on stage,” said


“You can go up there and

play music and stand still, but

we want to be more than that.

It’s about being in the moment,

revival, energy, and loving rock

’n’ roll,” he said.

The other members of The

Sneaky Caribbean Monk Seals

are Yannik Turner (vocals),

David Archer (bass) and Abel

Carson (drums).

Second place in the band

category went to Indigo State

from Burnside High School and

Hagley Community College,

Child (lead guitar) and Lucas

Royds (drums).

The USS Rigel didn’t reach the

islands until November.

It was the first major offensive

by the Allies against the

After Guadalcanal in 1943, the

USS Rigel travelled to Vanuatu,

Australia and New Guinea.

But while he was in the Pacific,

he kept in constant contact with

Mattie back in New Zealand.

His letters were sporadic,

commenting on what was going

on during the war, as well as

pining for Mattie.

A lot of them were censored

due to the nature of the missions.

The USS Rigel earned four

battle stars by the end of WW2.

However, Charlie left the USS

Rigel and ended up back in

Rhode Island, New York, at the

concerns about her trying to

Another letter to let you

know that I’m still alright. I’ve

learned to relax quite a bit even

though things are rather trying

at times. Falling bombs and shell

fire doesn’t bother me near as

much as it used to. I guess I’ve

now about the only thing I worry

about is when you and I’ll be

of a lot about anything he says,

and I still think we can shoot

the pants off of the Japs anytime

they feel like mustering around.

If you can go over there go to

everything the same as the time

School busy

as pupils

make most of


Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai haere mai ki Te Kura Huruhuru

Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the Hornby High

School community.

This is certainly a busy term: the student book club is growing

and thriving; Year 10s have been away on their outdoor

education camp at the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre; we

have participated in our first combined kapa haka performance

of the year with our good neighbours Hornby Primary School;

and our 2018 Project K students graduated. We hosted the

SPACPAC Pasifika speech competitions, an enormously successful

event well attended by whānau from across the city, and last

week we hosted this year’s Salu Salo cultural evening with our

Filipino community. We are truly blessed to be able to live and

work in such diversity.

Amongst all of this, academic learning continues to happen

exactly as you’d hope and expect. We are seeing improved NCEA

internal assessment results from our seniors, both in overall

pass rates, and as importantly, in the proportions of Merit and

Excellence grades they are producing; it’s all about expecting the

best from every learner. Students are blogging more often, they

are writing and commenting more often. This is developing even

better thinking and writing among our rangatahi, and is a major

reason we continue to see fantastic improvements in student

writing across the school.

We are now almost two terms into the trial of a new Year 7 & 8

curriculum structure that appears to be “doing the business”,

as they say. That is, it is generating improved engagement and

academic achievement for those students. Staff are already

discussing what this might look like next year. Included in their

discussions is the possibility of extending this, or a similar,

structure to Year 9 students.

We are now in those final stages of preparation for the shift

into the next set of new buildings, scheduled to take place in

the week following September 13. After that, demolition will

proceed on the last of those old prefabs that first arrived on

site in 1974 ready for the then brand new Hornby High school to

open in 1975.

As I have already said, there is so much going on, there are so

many positive opportunities, here at Hornby High School Te

Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka.

Finally, a reminder that “Out of Zone” enrolments are being

accepted now, but close on July 26. A number of whānau missed

out last year because their applications missed the deadline.

SPCA volunteer’s enthusiasm earns award

HELPING: Ian Blackler has won the ‘Going the Extra Mile’ award

in the 2019 SPCA Purina Volunteer Awards.

IAN BLACKLER’S efforts to go

above and beyond when caring

for animals have been recognised

with a national award.

The Christchurch resident took

home the ‘Going the Extra Mile’

award in the 2019 SPCA Purina

Volunteer Awards.

The award is one of six given

by SPCA and Purina during

national volunteer week.

The awards celebrate the 5000

volunteers who give their time,

talent and energy to SPCA across

the 39 SPCA centres and 56

SPCA op shops.

SPCA Christchurch’s volunteer

co-ordinator Caitlin Hamilton

nominated Mr Blackler for

the award for his work at the

Christchurch centre.

Mr Blackler was nominated for

the awards twice, and is known

around the centre as always

having a positive and friendly


Ms Hamilton said he regularly

goes the extra mile for the

inspectorate, but a recent event

really stood out.

“We had a client who was genuinely

trying hard to provide for

her dog in very trying circumstances.

Her dog has a serious

illness called megaoesophagus,

which means he can’t keep his

food down, so he has to be fed

sitting upright, and then remain

upright for a period of time after

eating,” said Ms Hamilton.

“The solution to this problem

is a dog ‘chair’. We approached

Ian, who is very handy, for help.

He visited the dog, took some

measurements, and showed up

a few days later with a custom

dog chair. He sourced all the

materials from scraps and even

took the time to paint it. He did

this on top of his driving duties,

always happy to have a crack at

anything the centre needs doing.

Sometimes he works to hard and

needs to be reminded to look

after himself!”

More than 120 nominations

were received from SPCA staff

and volunteers across the country

for the awards.

The nominations were narrowed

down to a shortlist and

judged by SPCA chief executive

Andrea Midgen and Purina

country manager Jennifer Chappell.

Ms Midgen said that SPCA

simply could not function without

the loyal contribution of the

national network of volunteers,

and partners such as Purina, who

have sponsored these awards

since 2016 and ensure all SPCA’s

cats and dogs nationwide are fed

with Purina One.

“Our dedicated volunteer base

is the lifeblood of our organisation,

many of whom have worked

with us for several years. It is

because of these incredible people

that SPCA can continue to help

tens of thousands of animals each

year. Together with Purina, we

want to acknowledge the difference

these volunteers make to the

lives of animals in need.

“Our volunteers help with

every single aspect of SPCA’s

work – from cleaning and feeding

animals, to helping with administration

and fundraising. Our

op shop volunteers receive, clean

and merchandise donated goods

to help raise vital funds,” said Ms


The winners received a

Trusts help lifeboat institute get $35k in new equipment


Institution has $35,000 in

new equipment thanks to the

generosity of two

long-standing benefactors.

The JI Urquhart Trust granted

$20,000 for a jet ski and trailer

and The Southern Trust has

funded a $15,000 Kubota tractor.

To pay homage to the JI

Urquhart Trust, which has

helped keep the institution afloat

for eight years, it has called the jet

ski Urquhart Trust


Said coxswain Blair Quane:

“This year, when they heard we

were looking for funding for a jet

ski, they gave us extra to cover

this purchase.”

“We are very, very grateful to

these trusts. Both have helped

Sumner Lifeboat to save lives over

the years and their help with this

project will make a difference for

several years to come,” Mr Quane


“Our old jet ski named

Southern Trust Rescue was

funded by The Southern

Trust 12 years ago.

It has served us well,

but reached its limits.

Our first priority was

to replace the old

motorbike for towing

the jet ski with a small

but strong, more stable

tractor that would

enhance safety even with the old

jet ski.”

Operational crew member

Bjorn Stankowitz has been

testing the tractor and jet ski,

and helping train other crew


“The jet ski a little beauty,” he


“The Kubota has more power

and the driver has better control.

It is easier to turn so it is easier to

get it out of the garage and

that means we can get the

jet ski onto the water more


The new jet ski is

longer and stronger

than the previous machine

and Mr Stankowitz said it is

more responsive and is also

Blair Quane

more stable in the water.

“It’s also easier for the

second person to hold on so

the helmsperson can go faster

without the crew getting

exhausted,” Mr Stankowitz said.

RESCUE: Operational crew member Bjorn Stankowitz tests out

the new jet ski.

at St Bedes College

St Bede’s is a Catholic College for boys

founded by the Society of Mary in 1911 and

it is also the only Catholic boarding school

for boys in the South Island.

Catholic, Marist and Bedean principles

and values form the basis of a holistic

education at the College. We aim not to

make the College great but to ensure every

boy has the opportunity to be great, and

we endeavour to develop young men of

Catholic hearts and minds through the

experiences the boys have in their time here

at the College.

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place where

gospel values are practised to help form

principled men; a learning environment

where everyone achieves; a place that

teachers want to come to because of the

strength of the community; a place also,

where boys can embrace spiritual, sporting,

cultural and community activities, which all

combined shape boys into men. That’s the

priority and that is in our DNA.

Boarding at St Bede’s College is a tradition

that goes back to the 1920s. Our rich

history and tradition provides an excellent

foundation to embrace the challenges of

the modern era and prepare our boys to be

Catholic leaders wherever life takes them.

Today’s boarders enjoy life away from

home at the only single-sex Catholic

boarding school in the South Island.

Like many other organisations in

Christchurch, our campus has been broken

and tested. The demolition of the Chapel

seriously challenged us. It was the single

most important building at St Bede’s

College, and had symbolised the heart and

soul of the College ever since the third

Rector, Father Gilbert, converted it from the

gymnasium in 1929.

Makeshift holy places in the last eight

years, including the present facility, are a

poor imitation and far from ideal. But we

knew it was important to have this sacred

space – a place where we gather in good

times and in bad.

The time has now come to build a new

Chapel, which will be opened in September

this year.

After the hard years, there is real excitement

and anticipation about the prospect of the

rebuild which will significantly transform

the campus. As well as the Chapel, we

recently opened a new Food Technology

and Visual Art block and have extended the

Gymnasium. The Performing Arts Centre

will also be opened later this year.

Reunion for volleyballers and coach

•From page 1

They will be joined on

the trip by their former

Burnside High School

coach Sam Ryburn – who

is also the under-23 coach.

All four were part of at

least one of the Burnside

High senior girls teams

which won back-to-back

national secondary school

titles in 2015 and 2016.

Pio and Mikaera have

been playing for the Shirley

club in recent times, while

Manderson and Fahey are

currently on volleyball

scholarships at division

one colleges in the United


“Going to division

one is a major step up

– everyone’s bigger and

everyone’s faster. I was

lucky enough to get to

play all of last year and it’s

tough, but very cool,” said


The New Zealand team

will be hoping to secure

a top three finish at the

Asian championship,

which would book them a

spot in the under-23 world

championships. For Fahey,

who has just transferred to

North Carolina A&T State

University, the decision to

come home in preparation

for the tournament was


“I kind of came back

to play for him [Ryburn].

I was in the States, but I

knew he was coaching so I

wanted to try and make his

team,” said Fahey.

They will face No 3 seed

Vietnam in their group, as

well as Turkmenistan.

“Their ball control of

some of the teams in Asia

is insane. They get so many,

many more reps than we

do, it’s really hard to kill

a ball against them, their

defence is insane,” said


None of the girls

played volleyball before

attending Burnside High


The school has developed

a successful programme


in recent years, turning

out a number of players

who have gone on to play

for New Zealand and

been offered US college


When asked what the key

to the school’s success has

been Manderson, Fahey,

Pio and Mikaera all gave

the same answer – coach


“He chased me around

trying to get me to join the

team for years . . . I was

playing rugby, but he was

persistent with convincing

me to play volleyball,”

Fahey said.

The team will start

their Asian championship

campaign against hosts

Vietnam on July 13.

There are few thing sadder than drab white walls, I reckon, and

yet New Zealanders have long surrounded ourselves with them. So

when a painter started splashing some plucky pigment around Star

Media’s open plan office, I paid close attention to reactions. As a

cosy mustard yellow spread over the entire far wall, the brightening

of mood was palpable. People commented on how happy the colour

made them feel, how much warmer the atmosphere was, how the

sunny tone somehow lightened the load of constant deadlines.

It was grea to see more confidence using colour, pattern and

texture in the newly completed private homes we feature in this

magazine too. Where not so long ago we might have felt neutral

shades of brown or grey were somewhat audacious, today’s newly

built homes pop with vibrant blues ( Jay and Rebekah’s place, page

6) and copper hues (Ryan and Jen’s, page 30). Matt and Celia (page

18) champion a monochromati colour scheme inside and out,

while Sridhar and Susanna (page 63) chose dramatic black iron

contrasting with smooth golden cedar to colour their new world.

It was also eviden that more homeowners and building industry

professionals are getting behind the movement to build better

homes for the Christchurch climate. Warmer, healthier and cheaper

to run is the brie from owner seeking builders with the know-how

to construct their home from smarter building materials and designs

that keep the cold out and the dust and electricity bi ls down.

I really hope this magazine, and its associated Home & Living

Show ( June 28-30), leave you brimming with the knowledge and

inspiration to smarten up your home too.
