Marie Black

Strong

showing

at polls

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Marie Black has become the first

woman to hold the Hurunui

District Council mayoralty with a

convincing win at the polls.

She won the mayoral contest by

just over 2000 votes from her

nearest rival, Julia McLean, after

preliminary election results were

announced this week.

Mrs Black, who has been

deputy mayor for six years of her

nine­year council tenure, says

she is ‘‘humbled and proud’’ to

have been elected to the top job.

‘‘I am feeling very excited to be

given this great opportunity to

carry on the good work our

council does.

‘‘I have spoken to all the

elected councillors and they are

excited about the opportunity to

work as ateam, work to their

strengths and bring the

community along on the

journey,’’ she says.

‘‘I am delighted the result has

been so resounding from a

community perspective.’’

Tenacity pays off

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Dan Gordon could be seen campaigning

in all weathers, waving at passing

motorists. He ran astring of streetcorner

meetings, and his billboards

festooned the district.

His tenacity and determination have

carried him to aconvincing win in the

Waimakariri mayoral race, in which he

polled 2693 more votes than his nearest

rival, Paul Williams, according to the

preliminary results.

Mr Gordon says he is feeling humbled.

‘‘I would like to thank all those who

voted for me. Ioffer my congratulations

to all who stood. This election has been

well contested with avery high voting

turnout (46.38 percent, excluding special

votes).’’

He was at work bright and early on

Monday, sleeves rolled up and ready for

business.

His priorities include managing the

forecast 25% population increase in the

Waimakariri District over the next 10

years, which he says will add to the

growing problems of traffic congestion,

carparking and the need for good healthcare

solutions, including after­hours

services.

‘‘We need to find workable solutions to

these issues so that our district can

continue to thrive,’’ he says.

‘‘Another priority for me, and Iam

sure one which councillors share, is to

find ways of achieving these, at the same

time holding the cost of rates.’’

Mr Gordon is also keen to create closer

connections between the community and

the council. He intends to hold regular

drop­in sessions around the district so

people can share their views on issues.

‘‘I want to be an accessible mayor, and

available to everyone.’’

The election has delivered several

changes around the council table.

Rubber outfit stretches imagination

Imagination gone wild

... Amy Roberts’

ensemble, The

Phoenix,was

recognised at the

Canterbury 2019

Wearable Arts

Awards. PHOTO:SUPPLIED

By RACHEL MACDONALD

Amy Roberts uses art to

expressherself,whetherit’s

colouring or styling clients’

hairatwork or designing

fashion at home.

She needs to be busy, and

her imagination seems

boundless.

Last weekend, the Cust

hairdresser took awayafirst in

the Canterbury2019 Wearable

Arts Awards, hosted by Art

Couture New Zealand.

This followsawin in the

adults’ section of the 2019

NorthCanterbury Wearable

Arts competition late in

August.

Both gowns weredesigned

and hand­glued or stitched

around adressmaker’s

mannequin in her sitting room.

One is made out of individual

jigsaw bits and the otherof

stylised ‘‘feathers’’, but

weighing enough that it had to

be divided into aseparate

bodice and skirt.

The first gown,currently on

show at the Oxford Museum,is

called The Sky is the Limit.With

abodice, train,fascinator,and

bracelet, it was created

painstakingly from puzzle

pieces separately hot­gluedon

to acut­away underskirt. That

dress was all aboutgiving

something ago, tryingtocreate

something beautiful whether

you fail or achieve, saysAmy.

‘‘If you achieve, that’s great.

But if you fail, I’vecome to

understand, you get an even

better steer on what youcould

do better, whatideas might

workbetter next time.’’

Art Couture asked her to

submit the samedress for the

Canterbury show,but Amy had

other ideas.

In this case, the classwas

called Here We Go Again,

where every garment had to

comprise 70 percentrecycled

product. So, with just four

weeks to work with, andalways

up for achallenge, she started

lookingaround for new

materials to repurpose.

The gown started out being

madefrom bicycle innertubes.

Whentheyran out, Amy turned

to car innertubes. Each

‘‘feather’’ was painstakingly

cut by hand, then spraypainted,

beforebeing handstitchedontothe

base

garment.

The crowningmoment came

whenshe found an exploded

❛Ienjoy art as a

personal way to

express myself and

around me, and some

of those statements

seem to resonate.❜

—Amy Roberts

steel radialtyre on the

roadside, stopped the car and

pickeditup—tothe horror of

her daughter —took it home,

extracted,curled andspraypainted

the metal,and used it

as the sculptural heart of the

ensemble’s headpiece.

The ensemble is called The

Phoenix,building from ablack

train,through red and orange,

then to gold and pink through

the bodice and shoulders.

‘‘The mythhas it thatthe

phoenix risesfrom the ashes,

becomingstronger and wiser

as it gainsnew life,’’Amy says.

‘‘For me, the story —and the

gown —isabout womenwho

have faced,and overcome,

depression.

‘‘So many women aroundme

have faced really hard

journeys, diedalittle bit,but

have come though it. They go

from this dark place, and get

back up on their feet in this

new position of insight and

power that makes themareal

force to be reckonedwith.’’

What doesthe future hold for

Amy’s aspirations? First, she

would liketosee both awardwinning

gowns mounted in the

windowofher hairsalon,

Cedar Heights, in Cust. Second,

she dreamsofdevising an

ensemble that might qualifyfor

the World of WearableArt

AwardsinWellington.

‘‘Thatmeansawhole

audition process.

‘‘Itwould be great to take

some message to awider

audience,’’she says.

‘‘WithWOW, when you get to

that level, you have to come up

with an idea,auditionthe

garment and presentation, and

be accepted into the show. I

enjoy art as apersonalway to

express myselfand support the

peoplearound me, and someof

those statements seem to

resonate.

‘‘I’d love to see wherethat

could go.’’

Golfers show plenty of drive in rebuild

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Having members huddleina

container in the middleofwinter

to socialise after around of golf

has not been idealfor asmall

NorthCanterbury golf club.

But Scargill GolfClub

members are now enjoyingan

inviting, warm, and bright

clubhouse,which can also double

as ameeting place for the

community.

The clubhouse and community

hall were victimsofthe

November 2016earthquake. Just

acouple of weeks later,aquake

centred in the Scargill­Greta

Valley area finished them off.

The club’sold concrete block

building took ahammering.

Waghorn Builders securedpart

of the building,which club

members used for abit, but with

daylight showing between the

blocks it was obvious the 1960s

building had seen better days.

Club presidentNick Fairbairn

set out to secure funding to boost

the club’s insurancepayout of

$130,000. It was ameagre sum

because the club had followed

many othersafter the 2010

Canterbury quakes in lowering

its insurancecover because

premiums had soared.

‘‘That wasn’tgoing to pay for a

new building,’’ Nick explains.

She turned to the New Zealand

Lottery GrantsBoardfor help,

beingsuccessful with two

applications,and agrant of $5000

from the KateValley Landfill

Fund also boosted the coffers.

Meanwhile,acontainerand

the tractor shed wereput to use

as atemporary homefor

members and gear.

‘‘Wesat in the container for a

bit,but there was not much

socialising going on. It wasmidwinter,’’Nick

says.

Waghorn Builders, which had

helped the community for free

whenthe Scargill­Greta Valley

quake hit, such as taking down

damagedchimneys, was given

the rebuild task, which started in

May.

The roof was lifted, the

concrete pad retained and the

building pulled down. It was

rebuilt on the samefootprint.

The Glenmark LionsClub paid

for,and built, averanda along

one side.

‘‘Wehave atiny bit of funding

lefttobuild paths.’’

Nicksays none of what has

beenachieved would havebeen

possible without the huge

voluntary inputand help of Stu

Loe andJack Burrows,who were

on the building committeewith

her.

‘‘Itwas such agood club and

community effort to get this done.

Theyall supported me and

helped. It was justamazing

throughout the process. They

would jump in and roll up their

sleeves at working bees, bring

along theirtractors and all sorts

of gear to helpout.

‘‘That is what small rural

communities are all about, and it

is now afacility for the

community too, not just the club,’’

Nicksays.

Special votes will

decide mayoralty

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Kaikoura mayoralty race remains a

cliffhanger. Eighty­five special votes

will decide who gets the top job, with

Craig Mackle holding on by just eight

votes over John Diver.

The final result, once special votes are

confirmed and included, won’t be

announced until today.

The highlight was the 61.37 percent

turnout, with the 1679 votes punching

well above the national average of 44%.

The larger than usual number of

special votes was expected because of

population movement caused by the

November 2016 earthquake.

There were only enough candidates

nominated to fill the seven seats around

the council table. The new council is

Anthony Blunt, Lisa Bond, Vicki

Gulleford, Julie Howden, Derrick

Milton, Neil Pablecheque and Robby

Roche.

Mr Mackle, asitting councillor until

his mayoral tilt, says he is in ‘‘limbo’’,

and is never aman to ‘‘count his

chickens before they hatch’’. He is

delighted at the votes he received. ‘‘I am

pretty humbled by the support.’’

John Diver has previously been on

council, but was not asitting councillor.

Preliminary results are: Craig Mackle

501, John Diver 493, Darlene Morgan

323, Robby Roche 275, Sharon Rayner

78.

Congratulations in order

Congratulations to our new mayor, Dan

all the candidates who put up their

hands to serve our communities.

We acknowledge the enormous work

that outgoing mayor and mayoress

David and Marilyn Ayers undertook to

bring our district forward and we look

ahead to the continued dedication and

commitment to our district’s needs by

our new representatives.

Iammeeting with the New Zealand

Transport Agency for an update after

the public meeting Icalled on behalf of

the Make SH1 Safer Committee in

September to voice our concerns

around accidents and dangerous nearmisses

from Kaiapoi to the Ashley

Bridge.

Ihave personally requested that

these improvements are expedited to

be implemented within the next 12

months; that asafer pedestrian

crossing be provided across SH1 in

Woodend urgently; and that funding is

guaranteed to address the safety

concerns raised at my meeting.

With the agency re­allocating some

after the Government missed its targets

for its Auckland rail projects, there is

no excuse now for funding for these

more satisfying than working alongside

local residents in taking community

action to advocate for the important

things in our community.

hear that Environment Canterbury

By DAVID HILL

Building infrastructure hasbeena

major focusofthe Waimakariri District

Council during thelast 12 months.

Thecounciladoptedits annual report

forthe 2018/19 financial year last week,

ahead of Saturday’s localbody elections.

In areport to last week’s meeting,

finance and business supportmanager

of the community’’.

Highlights include adoptingthe

workon the Rangiora Town CentrePlan.

Regenerationwork in Kaiapoi is

continuing,withsportsfieldsand the

ongoing.

Open roadlinkswere established,

including the West Belt extensionin

There was also work to upgrade

severalparks, includingthe Ohoka

Farmers market, andGladstonePark,

while work is ongoingtoupgrade

Constructionhas startedonthe multiuse

Rangiora.

Thenew three­binkerbside collection

service wasalso rolled out, readyto

beginon July 1.

‘‘Year­end accounts showanet

surplusfor the year,beforetaxation and

other gains, of $29.5 million,’’ Mr

Millwardsays.

‘‘Thiswas primarily dueto$37.7

million of assets suchasroads, footpaths

andparkswhichare built as partofnew

sub­divisions, being vested to the

council, beingoffset witha$7.8m writedown

on revaluation of interest­rate

swaps.’’

Hesaid borrowingfor the year was

lower thanexpected,at $27.9 million

under budget, due to somecapitalworks

beingdelayed.

Asteady stream of people filed into the

Waimakariri District Council service

centre last Saturday morning to vote in

the local body elections.

They were greeted by Waimakariri

District Council chief executive Jim

Palmer and council governance

manager Sarah Nichols.

Although voting could be done by

post, electoral boxes were provided in

council service centres nationwide for

those who had left it too late to vote via

the postal system. About 500 people a

day had used the electoral box in the

council service centre’s foyer in

Rangiora to vote, Mr Palmer said on

Saturday.

‘‘It has been the best turnout for

several elections. We are bucking the

trend (for poor voter turnout), which is

great.’’

He thought that one reason for the

increase in turnout was because voters

had to choose anew mayor in

Waimakariri.

‘‘David (Ayers) will be ahard act to

follow. He has been an awesome mayor

and done so much for the community.

‘‘It is nice that he is able to go out on

his own terms.’’

Amberley police are calling for help

from parents to bring ahalt to aspate

They need to have abit of achat to

them or come into the police station

and have achat,’’ he says.

Motorwaydiversion

Athird concrete pour on the northern

St Patrick’s Kaiapoi Rarotonga Cultural Trip

Nine Kaiapoi children are about

to embark on atrip of alifetime to

Rarotonga.

St Patrick’s Kaiapoi Catholic Primary

School is taking nine Year 7and 8pupils

and two adults to the Cook Islands in

term four to learn about the local culture

and do some community service.

“This is our second trip and what we’ve

identified is the opportunity to do an

overseas trip like no other,” says teacher

Pax O’Dowd, who will accompany the

pupils to Rarotonga.

“It’s like school camp, where the

students will have some fun, but it’s

Raro style and it’s an opportunity to

give back to the local community and

to learn what we share in common

as Pacific communities as well as our

differences.”

Pax will be joined on the trip by parent

and Board of Trustees member Angela

Lamont.

Although the Cook Islands is officially

apart of New Zealand and uses New

Zealand dollars, life is very different on

the islands and local schools do not

have the same resources.

As well as fundraising for the trip, Pax

says the school has been fundraising

to support Nukutere College, aYear

7to11school in Rarotonga, which St

Patrick’s has built arelationship with.

“Our first trip last year was an

opportunity to see the lay of the land.

We quickly realised the school doesn’t

have alot, and in the last few years

they had afire burn down some of their

classrooms. To date, nothing has been

rebuilt due to alack of funding.”

The St Patrick’s contingent plans to

take some resources for the school and

is seeking support from the local North

Canterbury community.

Anumber of local sports organisations

have agreed to donate sports

equipment and local businesses have

given some stationery.

Pax says the group is also liaising with

community groups in Rarotonga to do

some volunteering, planting and clean

up work.

The group will be staying at the

Rakahanga hostel, which is named after

one of the islands, and is like amarae,

Pax says.

“It’s very basic, but community

focused and everybody pitches in with

cooking and cleaning.

“They are wonderful hosts and are

quite proud of their country and are

really happy, humble people.”

The pupils said they were looking

forward to visiting Rarotonga and

meeting their new penpals at Nukutere

College, who they have been

corresponding with in the lead up to the

trip.

Pupil Mason Robson says his penpal

‘likes taro’, apopular vegetable in the

Pacific Islands.

His classmate Caleb Spence says he

has been to Rarotonga before and is

looking forward to returning.

“I’m excited to see the beach. It’s pretty

hot at 30 degrees most of the time and it

rains alot.”

Their classmates are looking forward to

learning about Cook Islands culture and

meeting their penpals.

They have been busy fundraising and

collecting stationery supplies and books

to take to Nukutere College and packing

their bags.

The Cook Islands is acollection of

15 tropical islands totalling 240 square

kilometres and has apopulation similar

to Rangiora.

Far more Cook Island nationals live

in New Zealand, with the 2013 census

identifying more than 60,000 as

resident in this country, about the same

population as the Waimakariri district.

The culture and language are similar

to Maori and the indigenous people are

known as Cook Island Maori.

Nukutere is also believed to be the

name of one of the waka on which Maori

tipuna (ancestors) travelled to Aotearoa

New Zealand.

Tom aims skyward in job switch

Waikari’s Tom Sidey has

gone from maintaining

aircraft to flying them, after

serving nine years in the

Royal New Zealand Air Force

(RNZAF) as an aircraft

technician.

Pilot Officer Sidey was one

of nine air force pilot

trainees from No. 14

Squadron putting their skills

to the test in Otago recently,

conducting flights out of

Dunedin International

Airport.

The pilot trainees were

joined by 10 instructors and

more than 25 supporting

personnel for this year’s

Exercise Wise Owl, atwoweek

pilot­training exercise

focusing on formation flying

in the T­6C Texan II aircraft.

After graduating from

Christchurch Boys’ High

School and joining the air

force in 2009, Pilot Officer

Sidey trained as an aircraft

technician.

In that role he was

deployed to more than 30

countries, including amonth

in Antarctica with the United

States Air National Guard.

However, he always had a

desire to fly and at the start of

2018 started his wings course.

While pilot trainees are

usually stationed at Ohakea

airbase, flying out of a

different airfield during

Exercise Wise Owl provided

them with aunique

challenge.

During the exercise they

flew over Dunedin,

Balclutha, Alexandra,

Timaru, Oamaru, Te Anau,

Manapouri, the Catlins, and

Invercargill.

‘‘When you factor in flying

at up to 300 knots between

250 and 30,000 feet in close

formation with another

aircraft, navigating an

unfamiliar environment

offers awhole new dimension

to our training,’’ he says.

‘‘Having the opportunity to

fly over other parts of the

country and see the awesome

scenery has also been

extremely rewarding.’’

While the wings course

takes up most of his time, he

still finds time to run

ultramarathons and

participate in target

shooting, hunting, fishing and

water sports.

Trainees aim to graduate

by the end of the year, and

will go on to fly either A109

helicopters or the King Air

350 aircraft.

As he nears the end of his

training, he says he has no

regrets about making the

switch.

‘‘Flying as part of the

RNZAF has already been one

of the highlights of my

military career.

‘‘Getting paid to train in

what you are passionate

about and having the

opportunity to contribute to

society in some epic roles

makes all the hard work

worth it.

‘‘And you also make alot of

really awesome mates.’’

The sky’s the limit ... Pilot Officer Tom Sidey, from Waikari, is

learning to fly with the Royal New Zealand Air Force. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Talent and fun converge for show

The madness and mayhem of

What Now hit Kaiapoi North

School last Sunday morning.

The New Zealand

children’s television

programme was produced

live at the school, aided by a

crowd of excited children

who were encouraged to

scream for the cameras

during the ‘‘foaming’’,

‘‘gunging’’ and other antics.

School principal Jason

Miles said it was lovely to

have What Now on site.

‘‘They brought the whole

set for the show with them. It

is amazing. The children

have been very excited about

it. Every child likes the idea

that they might be on

television.’’

It was abig day for

Clarkville singer Ellie Shaw,

aged 10, who won the event’s

sKids Singing Sensations

national competition. She

went up against three other

finalists from around New

Zealand.

Celebration ... Ellie Shaw, aged 10, from Clarkville,with her mum Dionne Shaw, after Ellie won the

Two artists, two styles, one show

By SHELLEY TOPP

Two North Canterbury artists with

different styles of work are

collaborating for an exhibition in

Oxford.

The exhibition, Collective Works,by

Paul Smith and Rachel Harré, will open

in the Arts in Oxford Gallery this

Saturday and run until Sunday,

November 24.

Paul is an abstract artist who was born

and grew up in England but now calls

Kaiapoi home.

Rachel, who was born in Christchurch

but now lives at Woodend Beach, is also

apainter, focusing mainly on

Canterbury landscapes. However,

sculpting in clay has also become afocus

and it is her figurines which will feature

in this exhibition.

Although Paul and Rachel will be

exhibiting different art forms, they

believe their work will sit well together

in the Arts in Oxford Gallery.

‘‘I believe it will be good together

because it is so different,’’ Rachel says.

Both artists demonstrate alove of

vibrant colours in their work. Paul and

Rachel hope the exhibition will attract

not only people who already know their

work, but newcomers.

Paul’s painting style ‘‘starts off quite

loose without any subject in mind and

the end result is asurprise’’.

Rachel’s figurines convey aclearer,

more personal message.

However, both artists know from

experience that each person looking at

their work may interpret it differently

from how they view it.

Arts in Oxford, at 72 Main Street,

Oxford, is open Tuesday to Sunday from

10am to 4pm, except public holidays. It

is run as anot­for­profit charitable trust

and is staffed by volunteers.

LOVE YOUR LAND

By SHELLEY TOPP

Two Rangiora AikidoDojo members

achievedShodan (first degree black belt)

ranking duringend­ofyear grading last

Saturday.

The grading was undertaken by Nobuo

TakaseShihan, chief instructor of Aikido

Shinryukan and technical director for

NewZealand Aikikai, at the Rangiora

Aikido Dojo headquarters in Rangiora.

Shayne Garbes and Scott McMurtrie

both began practising Aikidotoget fit and

gain confidence.

‘‘I find it good for fitness and it has also

beenanassetand good skill to have now

Iamapolice officer, being aless

aggressive style, but Iam now confident in

dealing with an aggressiveperson,’’ Scott

says.

Shayne found learning Aikido suitedhis

temperament, helped him gain fitness,

confidence and find comradeship.

The Aikido adult grading systemis

divided into six Kyu (beginner) grades

and nine Dan (black belt) grades.

Rangiora dojo headChris Clarke saysif

astudenttrains regularly and makes good

progressthey can attain Shodan levelin

about fouryears.

‘‘Obtaining Shodan is asignificant event

for students,requiring alarge investment

of time and effort, so the achievementis

worth celebrating,’’ he says.

‘‘Also, we should acknowledge the input

of training partners,teachers,and the

support of families andfriends, as

together they make this success possible.’’

However, although there is ageneral

perception that obtaining ablack belt

makes the student amaster in amartial

art, the meaning of Shodan is literally

‘‘beginner degree’’.

Chris says gainingShodanis like

finishing an apprenticeship where you

have completed the basic training, and

are acknowledged as capable of

performing the work.

‘‘You are not yet amaster but you have

the foundation on which to build

experience and become one.

‘‘There is definitely adevelopmental

progression beyond Shodan, and it is

important that students don’t see it as an

end pointintheir training, but the start of

anew and more advanced undertaking.’’

Introducing Miss March

By SHELLEY TOPP

SPCA’s 2020 dog calendar will be

special for Linda Newman.

Aphotograph of her dog, Bella,

a4­year­old German shepherdborder

collie cross, is one of

more than 1200 pets chosen to

feature in the three SPCA

calendars.

Linda, who lives in

Christchurch but was formerly

from Cheviot, said she ‘‘fell in

love with Bella, who became an

SPCA dog after she was ‘‘owner

surrendered’’ at 12 months of

age.

Every year the SPCA holds a

competition to find images for its

calendars and raise funds for the

organisation by asking animal

owners to submit favourite

photos of their pets.

Every pet entered in the

competition is guaranteed a

place in the calendar, with 12

chosen as ‘‘pets of the month’’

and acat, dog, and small, or farm

animal, as the cover stars.

Bella is likely to be the March

dog.

The entry fee was $25 per

photo, and every entry received a

free calendar, with all proceeds

going to helping the injured,

abused, and abandoned animals

of New Zealand.

The three calendars will

feature cats, dogs and other

animals.

‘‘The calendars are filled with

incredible photos of pets across

New Zealand, says the SPCA’s

senior communications

organiser, Sarah Hitchings.

‘‘We are so happy with how the

calendars look. It made us so

happy seeing how loved and

happy so many animals in New

Zealand are.’’

The calendars cost $25 each

and can be ordered at: spca.nz/

2020calendars, with all proceeds

going to the SPCA.

Trust to be

out in force

for spring

By DAVID HILL

The Community Wellbeing North

Canterbury Trust will be out and about in

the community over the next month.

With spring in the air, trust manager

Deirdre Ryan says October is agood

chance for people to get out and enjoy

their community.

She says the trust has already been out

at both the Kaiapoi River Wellbeing

Walk and the North Canterbury Business

Expo, and will be present at the

Soroptomist Fair on October 22, and the

Rangiora and Amberley A&P shows.

‘‘We are out and about, so people

can come and meet us and find out about

us.

‘‘What we have been wanting to do is

build relationships with the community

and we want to contribute to athriving

community, and people thrive when their

wellbeing is strong.’’

In recent years the trust has marked

Community Wellbeing Week in October

to raise the profile of the trust, wellbeing

in the community, and some muchneeded

funds.

With anew marketing and

communications person, Louise Leitch,

having joined the team, Deirdre says the

trust is reviewing how it can promote its

presence in the community.

‘‘We are thinking strategically about

how we are raising our profile in our

local community,’’ Louise says.

‘‘Is calling it something like

‘Community Wellbeing Month’, which is a

collection of activities in the community,

the best approach, rather than

connecting it with an international or

national event?

‘‘And does amonth of activities mean

something to the community?’’

The trust is also hosting its annual

meeting on October 23 from 4.30pm in the

Rangiora Town Hall function centre and

afundraising concert with former

international cricketer and coach John

Wright and the Sou’Westers on November

1.

‘‘We are uniquely North Canterbury, so

come along to our AGM and find out more

about your trust,’’ Deirdre says.

The trust celebrated its 30th

anniversary last year and continues to

offer arange of services, including the

community pantry in Kaiapoi, family

counselling, youth drug and alcohol

counsellors, social workers, restorative

justice and the Karanga Mai Early

Learning Centre, which offers support

for young parents.

Thanks to community support, the trust

is able to offer its services at no cost to

recipients.

Skool Loop just the business

By DAVID HILL

Adesire to improvecommunication

betweenschoolsand parents hasled to a

Kaikoura womandeveloping an

international business.

Sharlene Barnes, the founder of the

Skool Loop app, hasbeen named as a

winner in theNZI Rural Women New

Zealand2019 business awardsinthe

‘‘innovation in arural community’’

category.

‘‘Itwas veryexciting.Itwas quite

unexpected as thecompetitionwas tough.

It is awonderful awardand an amazing

achievement,’’ she says.

Thejudges were impressed with

Sharlene’s ability to articulatethe Skool

Loop product andits focus on providing

employment in rural towns.

TheSkool Loop appwas launched six

years agoand startedout from Sharlene’s

ownfrustrations with communications

betweenschool and home in arural area.

‘‘That’s whatmademethinkofit—my

ownstruggles withcommunicationsnot

beinginatimely manner.

‘‘Whenmychildren wereatschool the

technologydidn’texist, so whenapps

were created, Ithought ‘I know whatI’m

goingtodo’.’’

TheSkoolLoop appcontains school

notices,instantmessaging andalerts,

newsletters, electronic permission forms,

theschoolevent calendar,the absentee

function andanew functionhas recently

been added forparent­teacher

interviews.

Thefreeapp is now usedby800 schools

aroundNew Zealandand 120inAustralia,

with around70percentbeingrural

it environmentally friendly.

‘‘Most schoolswould sendoff two or

more bits of paper almosteveryday and

thesecan oftenget lost, butit’s allonthe

app.’’

Sharlene saysher second goalwas to

provideflexible employmentfor parents

so theycouldjuggle family life.

‘‘Almost all of my staff are parents

because theyunderstandthe struggles

withcommunication within schools andit

makes sense to me thatweofferthem the

opportunity for employment that fits

around their children.’’

Shenow hasofficesinKaikoura and

Rangiora,employing10people in each

office. She plans to openbranches in two

more rural towns in thenearfuture.

Sharlenehas livedall herlife in rural

NewZealand, being born in Otematatain

Northland. Shehas lived all her adultlife

in rural Canterbury.

Sheislooking forward to attending the

Planning is abouttostart for the 2021

South Island Agricultural Field Days,

after ashort winter break.

Event secretary TinekaJohnstone says

the organising committee heldits

annual meeting lastmonthand elected

its first chairwoman, Michaela McLeod,

of Darfield.

Tineka, whogrew up in Hawarden,

said theorganising committee tooka

break following its debriefafter this

year’sfield daysheld at Kirwee, near

Christchurch, in March.

‘‘We always take afew monthsoff after

the field days to give the volunteers a

break,but we’ve got acouple of meetings

before Christmaswherewewill start

planningfor the nextone.’’

Michaela replaces Lincolnfarmer

Rodney Hadfield,who presidedover the

field daysin2017and earlierthis year.

‘‘Usually the field dayschairmanjust

doesone fielddays,but Rodney did two,

because it was my firstfield daysas

secretary this yearand Michaela was

expecting ababy,’’ Tinekasays.

‘‘ButMichaelahas had an extratwo

years,soshe has knownit’s comingand

she’s lookingforward to it.’’

Other thanthe changeatthe top,‘‘it’s

business as usual’’, withjust one

organising committee memberstepping

down,after19yearsofservice, andtwo

new recruits joining.

Mid­Canterbury farmer Hayden

Dorman is vice­chairman and likely to

step up for the 2023fielddays.

North Canterbury farmer Alastair

Robinson, of Waikuku, is staying on as

governance committee chairman,having

servedas2015 fielddays chairman.

Other committee roleswill be allocated

over thenext twomonths.

The organisingcommitteewill also

work on anew strategy,asitlookstoset

some short and long­termgoals for the

two­yearly event, the field days site and

the overall governance of the

organisation,Tineka says.

In betweenfield days,the site is

leasedtoneighbouringfarmer Tony

Redmond,but thereisalso growing

interest in usingthe site for otherevents,

with the Fencing Contractors

AssociationofNew Zealandhostinga

training day there earlier thismonth.

‘‘It’sabout finding abalance.Weonly

use it for one month every two years, so

it has to be aviablefarming option so we

can earn an income to pay the rates and

insurance,’’Tineka says.

Schoolprepares to

mark40thjubilee

By DAVID HILL

Rangiora New Life School’s 40th jubilee

is being described as an opportunity for

people to connect.

Principal Stephen Walters says the

school’s Labour Weekend celebrations

will provide achance to reflect on the

school’s growth from 16 pupils in 1979 to

aYear 0to13school of 470 pupils today.

‘‘The school was started by the

Gateway New Life Church as aprivate

Christian primary school because the

founders wanted to educate their own

children.

‘‘Those 16 pioneers weathered a

winter at Leigh Camp (at Loburn), before

the founders purchased the current site.

It was aswampy, overgrown paddock.’’

He says the school was built first,

before the church, and has been added

to over the years.

The school later became astateintegrated

Christian school and was

extended to Year 13 in 1994.

‘‘We provide aChristian education for

families that want it. It’s very important

that as aparent you have the choice

between agood quality state school in

your local area, an integrated school,

and private schools,’’ Mr Walters says.

‘‘I’ve always been agreat believer in

working with the community. We are

part of the area schools network in

Canterbury and also with primary

schools that are associated with them,

and we have relationships with all the

schools in North Canterbury as well.’’

He says the school runs six buses each

day, picking up pupils from as far afield

as Oxford and Amberley. It has strong

relationships with local churches,

across avariety of denominations.

The 40th jubilee celebrations will

begin with the annual Founders’ Day

Assembly at 2pm on Friday, October 25,

where one of the original founding

trustees will be attending.

‘‘We do this every year to honour those

who have sacrificed alot to get this

school to where we are today.’’

There will be achurch service the next

day at 9.30am, followed by an

opportunity for visitors to have alook

around the school, ‘‘to reminisce and to

reconnect’’.

‘‘It’s lovely to be part of that and to be

having people from all different stages

of the school to come and connect.’’

Registration is still open, but people

are urged to get in quickly via the

Rangiora New Life School page on

Facebook or online at rnls.school.nz/

jubilee.

Youth applications sought

Local youth are being encouraged to

apply for the Waimakariri Youth

Development Grant.

Waimakariri District Council youth

development co­ordinator Sam

Redman says potential applicants have

been slow in responding.

Agrant of up to $4000 is available for

one or more young people aged

between 16 and 22. ‘‘We’re looking for

as many applicants as possible.’’

Applications are open until 4pm on

Chanel’s Riviera, by Anne de Courcy

Far from worrying aboutthe onset of

war, in the spring of 1938the burning

questiononthe French Riviera was

whether one should curtsey to the

Duchess of Windsor. It was agolden,

glamorous life, far removed from

politics or conflict. Chanel’s Riviera

explores the world of the Cote d’Azur

eliteinthe 1930s and 1940s. Enriched

with original research, it is asocial

history that brings the experiences of

both rich andpoor,protected and

persecuted, to life.

The Roadhouse, by Kerry McGinnis

When aspiring actress Charlie Carver

Her relationship with her mother,

determined to patchuptheir

differences. The reunion is
