Jerry recovering from brutal attack

‘He was

bleeding

everywhere’

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

NICHOLA Crawford cannot

fathom the kindness that has

been shown to her following

the brutal attack of her

german shepherd Jerry.

The Riccarton resident

was walking her son’s dog

Jerry along Wharenui Rd

recently when three unrestrained

dogs appeared from

an unfenced property and

attacked him.

“I was a mess, I don’t

remember most of it . . . I was

trying to hold Jerry but he

was on his choker chain, so

I was trying to sort of swing

him around but it was all just

so quick . . . he was bleeding

everywhere,” Ms Crawford

said.

The owner of the three dogs

along with members of the

public helped throughout the

attack, but Ms Crawford has

not heard from the owner

since.

The attack left Jerry with

puncture wounds along his

abdomen, numerous bites and

a wound on his neck.

Laloli puts

name

forward for

council seat

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RIGHT-LEANING Independent

Citizens candidate Catherine

Chu will no longer be running

uncontested for the city council’s

Riccarton Ward in October’s local

body elections.

Former

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board member

Peter Laloli has

put his name

forward to run

independently

against Ms Chu Peter Laloli

for the job.

The decision was prompted

by current city councillor Vicki

Buck’s announcement to depart

from politics at the end of the

term.

The retired policeman and Riccarton

resident said he had been

considering running for the community

board, but now that Ms

Buck isn’t standing, he will put his

name forward for city council as

well.

Mr Laloli served on the

community board for 15 years

– two terms as the chairman of

the board – before he failed to be

re-elected in 2016.

DANNY MEEHAN was a pretty useful

boxer in his day and his son is now

following in his footsteps (page 11).

Daniel Meehan won the junior 60kg

national Golden Gloves title by unanimous

decision in Rotorua.

A student at Christchurch Boys’ High and member of the

Smiling Tigers club, it follows on from his recent South Island

Golden Gloves title. Young Meehan is trained by Mark Fuller, a

useful man with the gloves in his day too.

Fuller said he wasn’t surprised by Daniel’s win in Rotorua, which

follows on from previous New Zealand and Australian titles.

“Because of his work rate and his angle changes I think he

had his opponent flummoxed, it was a really convincing win for

him,” said Fuller.

Kyle Park reclassification

Decision

likely

today

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A MAJOR step could be taken

today to get the long-awaited

Hornby mega-facility built.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will

consider approving a recommendation

made by a hearings

panel to reclassify part of Kyle

Park and update the Kyle Park

Management Plan 1993.

The changes need to be made

to enable the Hornby

Library, Service Centre

and South West Pool to

be accommodated at the

eastern end of Kyle Park.

Last month, a hearings

panel made up of

Papanui-Innes Community

Board deputy chairwoman

Emma Norrish,

city councillors Sara Templeton

and Tim Scandrett considered

181 submissions on the proposal.

DECISION TIME: The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board may give final approval today to reclassify part of Kyle

Park to allow the Hornby mega-facility to go ahead.

The city council received 163

submissions in favour and 23

in opposition following

public consultation in

March and April.

On June 17, the

hearings panel recommended

the changes go

ahead.

Other recommendations

made was for an

upgrade to the Kyle

Park underpass to be aligned

with the work on the Hornby

mega-facility, as proposed by a

Marc Duff

Crime Protection through Environmental

Design report.

It also supported the community’s

wish to enhance the

amenity of Kyle Park including

land remediation and working

with the Ministry of Education

to install a safe crossing between

Hornby Primary and Hornby

High School.

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association chairman Marc

Duff and member Mark Peters,

who will be attending the

meeting on Tuesday, are hoping

the recommendation will go

ahead to allow for the Hornby

facility to be built as soon as

possible.

Board chairman Mike Mora

agreed and said he hoped there

would be no “hold-ups” at the

meeting.

If the changes go ahead, the

city council will be asked to

confirm the site and scope of the

facility – this confirmation is

scheduled for September.

Last year extensive

geotechnical and contamination

testing undertaken on the

former landfill site by the city

council confirmed Kyle Park

could be safely built on.

Landfill gas testing also began

at the park in April and will run

for about 12 months.

City council head of

recreation sports and events

Nigel Cox said gas comes out

of landfills naturally as rubbish

decomposes.

“If the Kyle Park site is

confirmed, the landfill gas

testing will provide information

needed to mitigate any gasses

in the design of the facility. We

started the testing early so that

we would have the test results

before we start any design

process,” he said.

In Brief

RESIDENTS’ PARKING

A parking restriction exception

scheme could be installed on

two streets in Upper Riccarton

and Ilam. The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

will today consider approving

the scheme on Athol Tce and

Rutherglen Ave so residents

living on the street don’t have

to comply to the P120 time

limit restrictions. The scheme

allows residents in the street to

purchase a permit for a specific

vehicle. The cost of the permit

is currently $54 per year but

is subject to change due to the

permits requiring to be renewed

annually.

WATER STRATEGY

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will

meet tomorrow to make a

submission on the city council’s

Draft Integrated Water Strategy.

The aim of the strategy is

to develop a framework to

help manage the city’s water

resources, values and demands.

Consultation closes on July 21.

The meeting will be held at the

Te Hapua: Halswell Centre at

noon. To make a submission and

to find out more information go

Veterinary practice

“The Needle”

Last week the decision was

made to open up my beautiful

girl Lola to retrieve a “bent

needle” somewhere in her

abdomen. I debated over this

for 24 hours as I don’t like

her having anaesthetics and

I hate cutting her open. She

was telling me she wasn’t

right though, lagging behind

on walks and eventually not

wanting to leave the house,

tucked up sore in her abdomen,

head hung low and those sad

eyes staring at me. She may not

speak English but she sure talks

to me.

She is loved and adored by

everyone at the clinic so my

nurses took blood from her

and run them in house. Everything tested

was within normal limits. Richard Lucy then

ultrasounded her abdomen and again

nothing of concern was seen - thankfully.

We radiographed her spine which appeared

normal. What we did find was what looked

to be a needle

sitting ventrally

in her abdomen. I

was aware of the

needle after her

first surgery to

remove her kidney

due to cancer. The

specialist surgeon

mistakenly had

left it behind. I had

been monitoring

its position with

regular X-rays

and it hadn’t

moved in years.

Last week when

we radiographed her the needle

had moved and appeared bent,

necessitating removal.

My colleague surgically operated

on Lola as I find it difficult to cut my

girl open. The rusty looking needle was

removed and it had passed through a lobe

of liver causing adhesions to the peritoneal

wall lining. This would have caused her pain.

These were freed up and she was closed and

recovered so quickly with the aid of our “Bear

Hugger’ which blows warm air around Lola

on recovery.

She’s getting lots of TLC at

home and work and with my

clients. She’s adored by so

many and everyone wants

her to recover speedily. She’s

fought kidney cancer and

chemo, split pad disease and

intervertebral disc disease.

She’s hard to keep down

and out for too long. So far

so good ( Lucky her parents

are vets!!)- she’s more

comfortable and

moving better and

that needle had

to go!!

Halswell woman is

fizzing after

winning electric car

• By Devon Bolger

WHEN SUSAN Iffland

first got a call to say she

had won a $40,000 electric

car, she was in disbelief.

“I asked the man on the

other end about 12 times

if he was tricking me and

then later I emailed to ask

if we actually got to keep

the car, not just drive it for

a while.”

But she really had won

the competition after

entering the Star Media

Home and Living Show

which was held between

June 28 and 30.

The car was gifted by

HVS Ltd.

Sales and finance manager

Richard Gardyne said

he was glad it went to Mrs

Iffland.

“I’m stoked, they seem

to genuinely like the

vehicle a lot, so it’s a great

result.”

Mrs Iffland said now

that she knows it isn’t all a

joke, she’s thrilled and the

car couldn’t have come at a

better time.

“We’ve been saving for

a holiday but we thought

that money really should

go on a new car, and now

we’ve won one.”

Her husband Ben said

the couple’s 2004 Volkswagen

Golf was causing

constant issues for them.

“Every time we would

take it for a warrant of

fitness or service, there

would be another problem

with it.”

He said he’s had his eye

on an electric car for a

while.

“I’ve been wanting one

myself, I think they’re great

and I’m definitely a big fan

of saving the planet.”

Mrs Iffland won the car

drawn from 4000 entries.

She said she can’t believe

her name was selected.

“Half the time you

just think, does anyone

actually win these? But it

really does it happen.”

Jerry on road to recovery

•From page 1

He was taken to the vet where

he was sedated so his wounds

could be drained, cleaned

and stitched up – he was also

prescribed antibiotics and painkillers.

Ms Crawford said she doesn’t

blame the dogs or their owner

– but she would like a fence

installed on their property and

has asked the city council’s dog

control team to follow up.

“I said to dog control I don’t

want to take money off them because

it wouldn’t be right. I have

already got the money raised,”

she said.

Within four days after

setting up a Givealittle page to

raise money to cover Jerry’s vet

bill, $1027 was donated by 61

people.

Ms Crawford said most of the

money came on the day she set

up the page and she was overwhelmed

by everyone’s support.

The vet bill was $950, but Ms

Crawford also had additional

costs to cover having Jerry’s

stitches cleaned.

Axel Jones, who made a

donation, said he didn’t know

Ms Crawford but it was such an

unfortunate story.

“As a dog owner you feel that’s

like a friend being attacked and

no doubt a very scary experience

RECOVERING: Jerry the german shepherd was badly injured

following an attack by three unrestrained dogs on Wharenui

Rd recently.

with a big bill to go with it.”

Since the attack, Ms Crawford,

who already has anxiety, said

she has been having panic attacks.

“That was my worst thought

ever happening and now it has

happened,” she said.

Ms Crawford said she has

been left afraid to take Jerry out

but she is hoping with “baby

steps” she will be able to take

him walking regularly again

soon.

•From page 1

But Ms Chu said his decision

to run against her doesn’t change

a lot.

She said his experience could

not be ignored but she hopes to

bring a fresh perspective.

“It has always been about me

fighting for what I believe is right

and fighting for the residents

and being a strong

voice for them,” she said.

In the last elections,

Mr Laloli came third in

the race to secure the

city council’s Halswell

Ward with 1337 votes

– losing by 796 votes to

city councillor Anne

Galloway and 702 votes

to Halswell Community Project

chairwoman Chrys Horn.

He also lost to current community

board members Debbie

Mora by 780 votes and 506 votes

to Ross McFarlane in a bid for

a place on the board with 2634

votes.

But Mr Laloli said: “If you can’t

afford to lose, don’t stand.”

He said his reasoning for his

bid to return to the board is because

“nothing has happened in

three years.”

“The things on the agenda are

exactly the same as what was

there when I left,” he said.

Mr Laloli said some of

these issues being the Hornby

Library, Customer Services and

Recreation and Sport Centre

and roadwork issues on Riccarton

Rd.

Ms Chu agreed there is too

much bureaucracy that

goes on which wastes time

and process.

“That is why on council

level I want to be able to

make sure this less of that

and things get done more

efficiently,” she said.

Ms Chu said she

believes she can achieve

more on a council level

than at the board – some of her

goals are to review council spending,

making rates affordable and

restoring basic infrastructure in

the city.

Mr Laloli hopes to improve

partnerships in the community

to reduce crime and to review

the number of cycleways the city

council is installing.

“I am a pro-person for cycle

lanes, I like cycle lanes but I don’t

think we need to put in place the

cycle lanes we have got,” he

said.

Yr 7/8 South West Zones Basketball Tournament

The Year 7/8 Basketball team competed at the South West Zones tournament at

Wharenui Stadium.

The South West Zones Basketball Tournament was held at Wharenui Stadium

on Tuesday 18 June. Nine Senior Students represented Oaklands at this

tournament.

We played a total of four games, wining one of them and losing the other three by

small margins. The team can be very proud of their efforts which resulted in them

finishing third overall.

It was great to see the team working well together with lots of passing and

working together for the common good of the team. Thanks to Marie, Eddie

and Amanda for helping out with

transport. Without our fantastic

parent helpers we could not do what

we do.

While we have not progressed on

to the next round of competition,

we will take our learnings from the

tournament and transfer these into

our weekly Friday games. We look

forward to more exciting Basketball

as the season progresses.

Oaklands School Rebuild

Our rebuild is underway watch our website for updates

Hub 5 Park Detectives

All three Hub 5 classes have visited the Botanic Gardens and were involved

in some learning called ‘Park Detectives’, this was run by educators from the

Christchurch City Council.

The Park Detectives Programme was an informative and interactive lesson and

the children learnt about.....birds, bugs and trees. They discovered how birds

communicate and pollinate our flowers and trees. Students also got a chance

to do some bird watching. They had some great encounters with some fantail.

After that, the children learnt about bugs and how they are so important to the

decomposition of the trees and vegetation. Finally, the students looked at the

New Zealand native trees and how they help our environment. Thanks to all of

our parent helpers!

Josie Leoni’s recap:

On Thursday the 23rd of May 5DH went on a wonderful trip! It took 10 - 15

minutes, once we got to the gardens we got straight into the 1st activity. We

got given a card and got told, “Don’t show ANYONE”. We played a fun game

where we had to find our other bird family by using the voice of the bird. I was a

“Piwakawaka” also known as a “Fantail” after we found our brothers and sisters

we had to find our parent, the fantail’s parent was Jenna’s grandpa.

When we had finished we then had another activity we listened, to the wonderful

chirping of birds. We had a notepad where we recorded the birds.

Hub 3 and 4 at Orana Park!

Hub 3 and 4 were fortunate enough to be able to go to

Orana Park. We had been looking forward to this trip for a

long time, and it did not disappoint!

The weather was kind to us which made for an easy walk

around the zoo. We learnt so much about all the different

animals and sustainability.

We split into our classes and went with different tour

guides. The guides captivated the student’s attention –

and indeed our and the parents – for the entire day, as

their knowledge was taken in by us and the students as

we explored each of the species the Park had to offer. We

saw and learnt more about animals such as the Gorillas,

Cheetahs, Rhinos, Giraffes, Tigers, Birds, and Spider

Monkeys!

The children added to their knowledge of sustainability – to help protect the

Gorillas, you can recycle your old mobile phone! This is so that manufacturers

can reuse a certain material in phones that is found in Gorillas’ habitats! This way,

people don’t have to keep destroying their homes! Also palm oil products were

recommended that we do not buy these products, as Tigers are facing a similar

problem! We all really enjoyed our time at Orana Park and can not wait to learn

more about animals and sustainability in the classroom!

Hub 6 @ Travis Wetlands

Hub 6 visited Travis Wetlands as part of their Science Unit on Sustainability.

See below for some students writing about the Travis Wetlands.

Travis Wetlands - The bus ride was 40 minutes long and quite bumpy, when we

got to the wetlands we had a quick snack and an introduction. After that, we went

to the information centre and found out that 200 years ago, 95% of New Zealand

was wetlands before the Europeans came along. We also found out that a wetland

is like a bed and breakfast, a sieve, an airport, a sponge and a home. Then we split

off into our two groups, my group headed off with Pete to look at water creatures.

We used the retrieval device (a sieve on a stick) to catch the water creatures.

Keisha got super lucky and got about fifteen water creatures on her first go, they

include the water boatman, the backswimmer and the mite. Not long after that, I

found a damselfly nymph and it was going crazy. We also found a water snail, but

we let it go because it wasn’t moving.

Then Pete took ours to show it to

everyone because we had caught the

most. We let them go to finish, which

was sad because I had gotten attached

to those guys. - Written by Scarlett.

Travis Wetlands - As we hopped off the

bus 6RF and half of 6SL put their bags

down. Pete (the instructor) gave us an

introduction about what we were going

to do. We split into two groups and had

two activities. Pete also said how the

Wetlands is a home, a sieve, a bed and

breakfast, a sponge and an airport. He

also explained how 200 years ago 95%

of the land was covered in wetlands,

but now only 4% is left. My first activity

was bird watching. Peter was the name

of the instructor helping us as we got to

the place, it was in a little hut. He told us

to grab binoculars and watch for birds.

I saw paradise ducks, black swans

and shuffler. I enjoyed going to Travis

Wetlands!

Dangerous intersection upgrade plan

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PLAN to turn the city’s

junction into a T-intersection

to reduce crashes has received

mixed feedback.

The city council has received

137 submissions on

its proposal for a $1 million

She said there had been

mixed feedback on banning

right turns from Ilam Rd onto

Riccarton Rd, but did not

appear to be “overwhelming

Middleton Rd.

The intersection is ranked

the city’s fourth most dangerous

with 40 crashes with

varying degree of injury since

2011.

“It is a very dangerous

intersection. We have always

wanted it done but we have

never been able to get it done,

the reason now is it is part of

the cycleway programme,”

Mrs Broughton said.

The intersection will be upgraded

as part of the Nor’West

Arc Major Cycle Route, which

was approved in March last

year.

A report will be presented

to the board on July 23 with

submissions on the proposal

to be made public at the same

time.

Skylah’s bid to reduce road toll

A YEAR 12 Villa Maria

College student wants to help

reduce New Zealand’s road

toll.

Skylah Holmes is one of

12 students from around the

country to have been chosen

as a national student representative

for Students Against

Dangerous Driving.

Skylah will empower young

people to make safer and better

choices on the road as both

drivers and passengers.

The national leadership

programme for SADD fosters

young emerging leaders who

are passionate about safe driving

and making a difference in

their community.

As part of the programme,

Skylah, of Halswell, will travel

to different parts of the country

to participate in workshops

to develop new resources,

campaigns and ideas that will

positively impact on New Zealand’s

roads.

“I am proud to represent

Villa Maria College on this national

platform and hope that

as a team, we can make a real

difference to our nation’s road

toll,” said Skylah.

She said it is important all

young drivers understand and

appreciate what constitutes

dangerous driving, and have

tools to ensure they are safe on

the roads.

“This also goes for passengers.

I want to see the road toll

dramatically reduced, I want

everyone who heads out in

their vehicles each day to get to

their destinations safely, and

get home to their loved ones.”

Skylah said.

She is passionate about road

safety and is planning a number

of initiatives at the school

to promote road safety to her

fellow students.

“Young people can make

a difference. By teaching our

young people about road

safety, we hope this flows to

the rest of the community

and creates safer roads for

everyone,” Skylah said.

College student Skylah

Holmes will be a national

Poetry inspires peace garden

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SIRWAN MOHAMADI loves

writing poetry.

“As a human, I need to express

myself in a certain way, it is

about expressing feelings and

emotions and putting it on

paper,” he said.

His passion for writing is what

inspired him to build a garden

as a statement of peace and

unity within the multi-cultural

community at Harrington Park

in Riccarton.

Mohamadi has been working

with members of the community,

including the Oak Development

Trust, on the concept of the

Riccarton Peace Garden.

The idea was presented to the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board last week in

a bid to form a partnership with

city council park staff on the

project.

A key element Mohamadi is

planning for the garden is to

have standing stones, similar to

Stonehenge, which people can

write on.

“The idea is about inspiring

the young generation into

writing . . . one of the ideas is to

inspire young people to express

themselves in a way that is

artistic and can help mentally

and emotionally,” he said.

The group also plans to

transform an outer ring

surrounding the stones into a

path of pebbles with railing for

elderly people.

The aim is for the garden to

complement the Harrington

Park playground renewal, with

work planned to be completed in

October.

Mohamadi, who is originally

from Iran, said the garden is not

about the March 15 attacks, but

about respecting diversity in

Riccarton.

But he said everyone will have

different opinions on what the

garden may relate to.

It comes as The New

Zealand Federation of Islamic

Associations revealed designs

last month for a proposed

mosque attack memorial either

at the Christchurch Botanic

Gardens or Linwood Cemetery.

BEAUTIFY: A

plan to build

a Riccarton

Peace

Garden in

Harrington

Park has

been

presented to

the Halswell-

Hornby-

Riccarton

Community

Board. ​

The proposal, which would

include an ornamental water

feature, conference centre and

playground, could cost more

than $15 million.

Mohamadi said the

Harrington Park project is still

in the planning stages and city

council staff will need to be

involved in establishing the cost

of the project, but it will be open

to financial support.

The idea was well-received by

the board. Chairman Mike Mora

congratulated the group.

Said city councillor Vicki

Buck: “I think it is wonderful and

I love the idea of a community

park.”

The garden proposal has

been passed onto city council

staff for consideration and will

come back to the community

board.

FOUR SCHOOLS will help in

a large effort to restore a stream

in Ilam.

Burnside Primary, St Patrick’s

School, Cobham Intermediate

and CCEL, an English language

school in Ilam, will help to

prepare and plant eco-sourced

trees to restore the Wairarapa

Stream.

RICCARTON HIGH SCHOOL Te Kura Tuarua o Pūtaringamotu

FuLL HOuSe FOR MuSICAL exTRAvAGANzA

KAIKORAI exCHANGe TOuRNAMeNT FORGeS FRIeNdSHIpS

Students presented their own repertoire at the Musical Extravaganza

Riccarton High School was again successful

in this year’s winter sports tournament, the

Kaikorai Exchange, in which they competed

against Kaikorai Valley College in Dunedin, with

a handsome shield at stake.

The two schools take turns to visit each other

for summer and winter tournaments each year,

and this time it was RHS’s turn to host their

Dunedin counterparts. The tournament took

place on June 13 and 14, with the RHS team led

by the school’s heads of sport, Orion Chau and

Grace Ward.

The students competed in badminton, hockey,

rugby, basketball, netball, football, table tennis,

theatre sports – and a new event this year,

debating. The RHS team won everything except

the table tennis and debating, picking up the

shield for the 38th time.

A highlight of the event was the social on the

Grace Ward and Orion Chau display

the Kaikorai Exchange shield.

Thursday evening, with a sun, sand and surf

Hawaiian theme, and music provided by DJ

Chris Singh – the school’s counsellor in his other

life.

The tournaments have been held since 1959

and over the years have seen many strong

friendships forged between the students from

the competing schools.

Riccarton High School’s music students had the

opportunity to showcase their diverse talents

in the annual Musical Extravaganza held in the

school hall on May 30.

There was a full house for the event, which

featured all musical genres taught in the school,

ranging from classical and jazz to contemporary

and funk, and performances included concert

bands, jazz bands and combos. The students

had put together a repertoire of their own

choice, with vocalists and instrumentalists alike

delighting the audience of parents and friends

with their virtuosity and musical skill.

OpeN NIGHT ATTRACTS HuNdRedS TO RHS

Around 900 people turned up for

Riccarton High School’s open night

on May 16, all taking the opportunity

to visit the school and get a taste

of what it has to offer potential

students.

“Previously, our open day was held

in two parts with a presentation

evening followed by a series of

afterschool tours, but this year we

changed it and opened the school up

to the community and prospective

students and their families in the

evening,” Principal Neil Haywood says.

There were two sessions – one at 5.pm and

one at 6.30pm. Each one kicked off with a

presentation in the hall where Neil and several

other speakers provided information about the

school, after which visitors were shown around

the nine curriculum areas.

“We had 130 students on site demonstrating

aspects of the curriculum and interacting with

the visitors, and these were very popular,” Neil

says.

“We had very good feedback on the evening,

with people commenting on the passionate

teachers, the students as wonderful

ambassadors for their school, and the family

atmosphere and sense of inclusion that

Riccarton High School presents.”

There was also a lot of technical work behind

the scenes, with the students making sure

the sound levels and lighting were right. “It’s

a big event for the students and it gives them

a chance to show leadership,” says teacher in

charge of music, Anne-Marie Plummer.

The music department presents three major

performance opportunities each year – the

Musical Extravaganza in May, the Music Soiree

in September and the Junior Showcase in

December.

Student demonstrations were popular

with visitors to the open night.

A number of parents filled out enrolment forms

on the night, with a large amount of interest still

being generated by those out of zone, Neil says.

“Our reputation for diversity and inclusion still

attracts people from out of our normal school

zone.”

The intake for 2020 will be approximately 200

Year 9 students, the majority being in-zone

students, but with a limited number of out of

zone students being balloted in should numbers

permit it.

“As part of a wider zone review process across

Christchurch, we are currently working with the

Ministry of Education to slightly increase our in

zone and it will be interesting to see the effect

that this will have on our enrolment numbers. If

successful with the zone change this will come

into force at the beginning of 2020,” Neil says.

RICCARTON WAy SyMbOL ReCReATed

At Riccarton High School, the Riccarton Way

(RW) is the philosophy that underpins the way

students, teachers and staff think, act and feel

about themselves, others at the school, and

those in the local and international community.

It supports the school’s vision for the students

through emphasis on the key values of

commitment, honesty, respect and excellence.

Recently, the school’s media co-ordinator

Will Eason and the principal’s assistant Karen

Churchward took on the challenge of recreating

the RW symbol on the field with the students.

The symbol was last created and photographed

in 2012, and this year the task was to recreate

the symbol – this time, with 1100 students

instead of 900.

Groundskeeper John Steeds took the

measurements off the 2012 photo, adjusted

them, and marked out the shape for the

students to stand in. Network assistant Alex

Clark then flew a drone up to take photos and a

video of a perfect RW.

GIFTed STudeNTS NuRTuRed THROuGH eNRICHMeNT OppORTuNITIeS

Riccarton High School provides an extensive

programme for gifted students, and it is one

that has evolved and developed since Gifted

and Talented Education Co-ordinator Tania

Hawes started in her role more than 10 years

ago.

“Our Gifted and Talented Education programme

– GATE, is now very diverse, with a wonderful

mixture of areas,” Tania says.

“We are committed to providing for gifted

students in all areas – academically, musically,

sport – everything. It’s not purely academic.”

The programme offers many enrichment

opportunities, including a live Google site,

which students can access 24/7 and find a raft

of ever-changing content, Tania says. As well,

talented people come to the school and speak

to the students – two of those have been author

Eleanor Catton and sculptor Lew Summers, and

the students visit places such as the art gallery

and the Court Theatre, where they are shown

what goes on behind the scenes.

The school has also established links with

the University of Canterbury and with

professionals working in a variety of industries

so gifted students can discover the range of

opportunities open to them.

Gifted students are often those that sit outside

the bounds of normal assessment, Tania says,

and her goal is to give these students the

chance to see pathways to success. As she

explains, students with special abilities may not

realise it because they haven’t been exposed

to an environment in which those abilities are

recognised and encouraged.

“By talking to them about their interests we help

them realise what their special abilities are and

how they can develop them for future success,”

Tania says.

The school recently held a Gifted Awareness

Week to raise awareness of gifted students’

needs, and Riccarton High School also works in

with contributing primary schools to organise

a week of activities at the end of the year

designed specifically for gifted students, Tania

says.

Cookbook to honour Hornby legend

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A COOKBOOK will be

produced to celebrate the life of a

“Hornby legend”.

Nova Mayo died at her home

on June 21 at the age of 79.

Heavily involved in the

Hornby community, nearly 1000

people turned out to honour

her life at a service at the Upper

Riccarton Methodist Church

recently.

“She was obviously a very kind

and caring person. She would

volunteer for anything and was

very committed to her community,”

her son Ashley Mayo said.

He said Mrs Mayo was a very

good cook and would often run

demonstrations for the Salvation

Army in Hornby and the Hei Hei

Broomfield Community Development

Trust, also known as 126

On The Corner.

She would also cater for many

community events including

break-ups at the Hornby Panthers

Rugby League Club.

But she was “famous” for her

cream horns – which is one of

many of her recipes along with

meringues and cinnamon oysters

which will be included in the

cookbook in her memory.

Mr Mayo said plans for the

cookbook are in the early stages

LOVED: Nova Mayo, who died at the age of 79, was described

as a legend in the Hornby community. ​

at the moment, but it is hoped it

will be able to raise funds to support

the community.

He said she was a “people’s

person” and it would often take

her about two to three hours to

get around the supermarket at

The Hub Hornby because she

was talking to people.

“She didn’t judge people. She

had dealings with members of

Parliament, gang dudes and

everyone was just a person to

her,” Mr Mayo said.

Many tributes have been

made online in honour of Mrs

Mayo – including from Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods.

Dr Woods said she was a

passionate, generous, kind,

clever woman of Hornby

who supported many of her

campaigns and often provided

catering for volunteers on

election day.

Mrs Mayo was also a huge supporter

of Hornby High School.

She was involved in the

establishment of the school in

the 1970s, was on the PTA and

worked at school canteen for

about 15 years.

Hornby High School principal

Robin Sutton said she left her

own extraordinary and indelible

mark on the community and her

unmistakable and positive laugh

would be missed.

Mrs Mayo was involved

in volunteering for many

community groups including

the Hornby Community Care

Centre, the Rotary Club of

Hornby and the Christchurch

South Rotary Club.

She was one of about 3000

people awarded The New

Zealand 1990 Commemoration

Medal for her services to the

community.

“We only found out about it

when we were going through her

stuff the other day so she kept

that very quiet,” Mr Mayo said.

Boxing champ’s son takes title

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’ High

School’s Daniel Meehan has

continued his impressive junior

boxing career with a win at the

New Zealand Golden Gloves.

Meehan, 16, backed up his

recent South Island Golden

Glove title by going on to claim

the junior 60kg national Golden

Gloves title by unanimous

decision in Rotorua.

Boxing is in his blood. Meehan

is the son of Danny Meehan – a

former Jameson Belt holder.

The belt is awarded to the most

scientific senior boxer at the

national championships.

The teenager has been boxing

for the past four-and-a-half years

at the Smiling Tigers Boxing

Club under coach Mark Fuller.

Meehan’s title came as

little surprise to Fuller. He

has previously won two New

Zealand titles and an Australian

Golden Gloves title. He also

came into the NZ Golden Gloves

on the back of a win in Australia.

“Because of his work rate and

his angle changes I think he had

his opponent flummoxed, it was

a really convincing win for him,”

said Fuller.

Titles were also won by

Woolston boxers Hamuera

Tainui, Ryley Sutherland

and Meehan’s Smiling Tigers

clubmate Kwahli Beauchamp.

Tainui took out the junior 66kg

title, Sutherland won in the 46kg

SPORT

cadet, while Beauchamp won the

40kg cadet title.

All four Canterbury boxers

have also been selected in

the New Zealand junior

development squad following the

Golden Gloves. The squad will

travel to Australia later in the

year.

“They’ve actually started

concentrating on the juniors

as well which is really good

. . . this is the first time in a very

long time that they’ve sent away

a good size squad like this, it’s

going to be great and a good sign

of things to come I think,” said

Fuller.

“All of those four boys have

been around a wee while now,

they’re only young, but they’ve

got quite a bit of experience

and they’re only going to get

better with what the Canterbury

association is doing to support

them.”

CONTENDER: Daniel Meehan

won the junior 60kg title at

the New Zealand Golden

Gloves. ​

China

tournament

for student

footballers

THREE FOOTBALLERS from

western secondary schools have

been selected to represent New

Zealand at an under-16 women’s

tournament in China this month.

Alyssa Whinham of Riccarton

High School, Freya Lodge-

Whitham of Christchurch Girls’

High and Claudia Wilson of

Burnside High will take part in

the tournament from July 14 to

22 in Weifang, where they will

play three matches against yet-tobe-confirmed

Asian opposition.

They will be joined by three

other Canterbury players Kate

Taylor, Zoe McMeeken and Samantha

Senior in the squad of 18

which will be staking their claim

to be part of next year’s FIFA

U-17 Women’s World Cup.

“It will be a real eye-opener for

the players in terms of the level

required and . . . they need to go

out and showcase themselves,

both individually and collectively.

It should give us real clarity

around where we’re at, which

would be a good space to be in

15 months out from the World

Cup,” said coach Leon Birnie.

No players are returning from

last year’s U-17 Women’s World

Cup, in which the New Zealand

team captured the hearts of the

country’s sporting public with a

remarkable third place finish.

Tasty Bites

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Eat healthy using delicious ingredients

Salads never need to

be boring, as seasonal

ingredients are just that

– seasonal. Winter brings

delicious flavours and

textures which go great with

grains. But don’t forget to

add a punchy dressing

Buckwheat with

autumn vegetables and

pomegranate dressing

Ingredients

250g buckwheat groats, rinsed

well

1 bulb fennel, cut into thin

wedges

250g pumpkin, peeled and

deseeded, cut into cubes

1 red onion, peeled and cut into

wedges

¼ cup parsley, roughly chopped

2 Tbsp fennel tops, roughly

chopped

Dressing

2 Tbsp pomegranate molasses

1 Tbsp maple syrup

4 Tbsp olive oil

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

Directions

Heat the oven to 200 deg C.

Bring a medium-sized pot of

lightly-salted water to the boil.

Add the rinsed buckwheat and

cook for 25-35min. The groats

should be tender when cooked.

Drain and rinse under cold

water. Put into a large bowl.

While the groats are cooking,

prepare the vegetables.

Put the chopped vegetables

into a bowl with enough olive

oil to coat them well. Season

with salt and cracked pepper.

Toss to combine. Spread evenly

over a suitably-sized oven dish.

Roast, turning occasionally so

the vegetables cook evenly and

colour all over (30min).

Add the ingredients together

and pour over the dressing in a

small bowl and whisk together.

Add the roasted vegetables to

the cooked buckwheat, drizzle

over the dressing and add the

herbs. Toss gently to combine,

taste and adjust, seasoning if

necessary.

Top off your healthy salad

with a nutritious treat

Hazelnut bliss balls

Ingredients

½ cup hazelnuts

½ orange (juice and grated zest)

1 cup fine coconut

1 Tbsp coconut oil

½ tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp dark cacao powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

Pinch of salt

Chunks of your favourite (storebought)

dark chocolate for the

centre of each bliss ball.

Directions

Place all the bliss ball

ingredients (except the chunks

of chocolate) into a bowl and

mix well. Then roll balls out of

the mixture.

Push a chunk of chocolate into

the centre of each bliss ball while

shaping them in your hands. You

can choose how big you make

the bliss balls.

REAL ESTATE

Living the dream…

56 Purau Port Levy Rd, Purau Valley, Lyttelton Harbour

Price: $799,000

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car garage | Listing Number: 8885

A charming, delightful 1950’s bungalow set

on nearly 1 acre of flat and very productive

land. North facing, sheltered, sunny and

private, this charming home is in excellent

order throughout having been loved and

carefully maintained over the years.

The top level of the house comprises 2

living areas, a large modern farmhouse style

kitchen with plenty of storage, a massive

master bedroom with adjoining bathroom

and a single bedroom currently used as an

office.

The master bedroom opens onto a covered

North facing verandah with a cosy coveredin

area with a day bed, the perfect place to

enjoy the afternoon sun, peace and birdlife

and to while away a few hours. Downstairs,

(externally accessed) are 2 double bedrooms,

bathroom and a kitchenette/dining area so

semi self-contained, perfect for extended

family or teenagers.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase in

the beautiful picturesque Purau Valley and to

obtain a small manageable holding like this is

really one of a kind.

The land is a mixture of lawns, gardens

and the most established and productive

orchard I have ever seen, with many many

fruit trees established vege beds and native

plantings. There is excellent access, a large

double garage, greenhouse and other useful

sheds and most importantly excellent water

supplies.

My vendors are retiring very reluctantly

and have loved every minute of the 10 years

they have spent here.

Purau Bay is approximately 30 minutes’

drive from Christchurch, making it a highly

desirable destination as it is so useable being

close to Christchurch.

Properties in this lovely valley and by

such a safe swimming beach are defying all

the odds and selling fast generally as they

come up very seldom. Excellent swimming,

boating, walking and stunning sunsets on

the hills, quick and easy access to Lyttelton

via the Diamond Harbour ferry (approx. 5

mins), local shops, cafés and bar make this a

fun filled place to visit.

Properties here make an excellent

investment and Purau Bay and valley is a

truly magical place to live.

Myth # 2

You can trust

everything you

read.

Yeah right! There’s a lot of news

available out there, but some sources

are more informed than others.

2 out of 3 readers agree newspapers are

their most trusted source of news and

information*

If you’re going to believe everything

you read, make sure you’re reading a

newspaper.

sure you’re aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that there won’t

be any unexpected surprises.

happening to keep our Summerset community involved and
