Lack of

funding

forces

childhood

centre to

cut lunches

• By Matt Slaughter

A LOW DECILE Woolston early

childhood centre is set to stop

providing lunches to its children

due to what it says is insufficient

Government funding.

The Ministry of Education has

offered Kimihia

Early Learning

Centre an

$81,000 funding

increase but

its manager

Radhika

Chakrabarti

said it will still

not be enough

to provide the

Radhika

Chakrabarti

lunches next year and cover its

operating costs.

Said Ministry of Education

deputy secretary of sector

enablement and support Katrina

Casey: “We have recently

approved increased funding for

Kimihia Early Learning Centre,

which is due to take effect from

November. We are currently

waiting to hear back from them

on whether they agree to this

increase.”

Second meeting planned over bus speeds

Bromley residents

put concerns to

decision-makers

• By Matt Slaughter

A SECOND meeting is set to

take place in a bid to address

speeding buses and other traffic

issues in Bromley.

Pegasus Post reported last

week on buses speeding through

Bromley, which have been seen

reaching about 60km/h in

50km/h zones. Keighleys Rd

resident and Bromley School

teacher Cathy Baker said the

buses are putting school pupils

in danger.

They are also shaking houses

on streets such as Ruru Rd and

Hay St near the bus depot on

Maces Rd.

The first meeting was held

last week and attended by about

30 people who discussed their

concerns and questioned city

council staff and Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board members.

Environment Canterbury

councillor Nicole Marshall

was also at the meeting, as the

regional council manages the

Metro bus service.

Ruru Rd resident Doreen

Hughes raised her concerns and

solutions at the meeting.

ISSUES RAISED: A follow-up meeting will be held after

residents raised their concerns with decision-makers about

bus and traffic issues near the Maces Rd bus depot in

Bromley.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“I’d like them [buses and

other heavy vehicles] to use

the main road down Dyers Rd

where there isn’t much housing,

it’s nearly all industrial, and

you can get onto Linwood Ave

there,” she said.

“I’d like to see them divert

some of the traffic or slow the

traffic down, calm the traffic

down somehow.

“It’s just awful living here.”

Mrs Hughes hopes decisionmakers

at the next meeting

will start to act on some of the

suggested solutions.

Said city council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas: “Residents raised

concerns about heavy traffic

using residential roads within

the Bromley catchment, causing

vibrations and loud noises on

streets, especially late at night,

speed of vehicles on long/uneven

roads, safety for children and

‘I’d like to see them divert

some of the traffic or slow

the traffic down, calm the

traffic down somehow. It’s

just awful living here’

– Doreen Hughes

nearby residents.

“Staff discussed how these

concerns could be mitigated

and that putting in place

road calming mechanisms

(physical and visual) to change

the appearance of the road,

influencing enforcement to

monitor speeds, speed cameras

and ways to encourage traffic to

use different routes were options

that could be considered.

“The community board will

discuss further to see what

they can advocate for, such as

to bring forward road fixtures,

talking with NZ police and

other relevant agencies,” he said.

Ms Marshall said she would

have a conversation with ECan

staff about the concerns raised

at the meeting and see what

assistance she could provide.

Linwood Ward councillor

Yani Johanson said city council

staff will now gather the

information needed to fully

answer residents’ questions.

A date will then be set for the

next meeting.

In Brief

ON-RAMP TO RE-OPEN

The Chaneys on-ramp is

scheduled to re-open on

Monday. The left-hand turn from

Marshland Rd, and Hills Rd, are

also set to re-open by Monday.

There have been delays the

completion of this work due to

broken machinery. The Chaneys

on-ramp will close permanently

when the Christchurch Northern

Corridor opens next year.

CROSSING UPGRADE

Work to install the South

Island’s first $300,000 puffin

crossing outside Hillview

Christian School in St Martins

was scheduled to begin on

Monday and is expected to take

two months. A puffin crossing

is a pedestrian crossing with

traffic lights, which go green

for vehicles only when infrared

detectors pick up no more

pedestrians. The only protection

currently available to pupils

crossing between the school’s

two campuses is a traffic island.

RAT TRAPPING TIPS

A question and answer session

on trapping rats will be held on

November 25 from 5.30pm until

7.30pm at The Old Stone House

in Cracroft. It is being hosted by

‘Families are going to struggle’

•From page 1

“[The] Government currently

spends over $1.8 billion on early

childhood education through

education subsidies,” Ms Casey

said.

Mrs Chakrabarti said the

centre has to either save about

$40,000 it costs a year for the

lunches or make cuts to its

teaching resources.

“I did not want to compromise

on our teaching and learning for

the children because they are the

future of this country.”

The cost of running the centre

has increased, so it would need

a bigger funding boost than the

one offered, Mrs Chakrabarti

said.

She said the centre

is in a low decile area

“The mums and parents and

“If services feel that the equity

Bid to form red zone group

PEOPLE WITH an interest in

the future of the city’s red zones

have been invited to join a new

advisory group.

The goal of the group is

to help create activity and

vibrancy in the red zone areas,

including the Port Hills, the

Ōtakaro Avon River Corridor,

Brooklands and Southshore,

ahead of longer-term regeneration.

Those selected will become

community representatives

on a Red Zones Transformative

Land Use Group, making

recommendations and giving

advice on possible initiatives,

ideas, and activities to help temporarily

transform the city’s red

zone land.

The group will also make

decisions on funding for some

transitional opportunities,

which could be short-term or

projects that last up to five

years.

The projects will aim to

benefit the community and

the environment and address

sustainability or ecological

challenges.

The city council is looking for

five community representatives,

including a youth member and

three Ōtakaro Avon River Corridor

representatives, for the

group.

EMPTY: A new advisory group will aim to create activity and

vibrancy in red zone areas across Christchurch, including on

the Port Hills. ​

“We’re on the hunt for

people who want to be part of

decision-making on initiatives

and activities that will make a

real difference to our city, said

city council head of urban regeneration,

design and heritage

Carolyn Ingles.

“If you’re someone who wants

to help transform the red zones

and you’re excited about representing

your community, then

we really want to hear from

you.”

The Red Zones Transformative

Land Use Group is a result

of the Global Settlement Agreement,

which set out how the

Crown and city council would

work together on transitional

land-use arrangements for the

red zones.

It also requires the city council

and Crown to set up a group

to provide community input to

Land Information New Zealand

and the city council on applications

for land use that last for

less than five years.

A co-governance group will

be established once ownership

of all or most of the red-zoned

land has been transferred to the

city council.

Drop-in information sessions

about the Red Zones Transformative

Land Use Group will

be held at various locations

across the city.

Applications for a position on

the group opened on November

11 and close on January 31.

They can be completed online

or forms are available at city

council libraries and service

centres.

Arborists bring Daisy back to earth

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A TEAM of professional

arborists were called to take part

in a spectacular rescue last week.

Treetech Specialist Treecare

Ltd was called out to rescue the

tonkinese cat Daisy last week

after she got stuck up a 15m tree

on Huntsbury Hill.

The drama unfolded after a

dog startled the cat, causing it to

run up the nearest tree.

SPCA Christchurch was

then alerted and reached out

to Tree-tech to help rescue

Daisy.

The SPCA first called the Fire

Service but it did not have the

gear to attempt the rescue.

“Because the tree was down

a steep track, there was no way

any vehicles could get near it,

which made it more challenging,”

an SPCA spokeswoman

said.

The cat was stuck up the

tree for 24 hours before being

rescued.

To complete the job, Treetech

aborist Nathan Shaw had to

climb the tree and descend onto

the limb where the cat was from

above.

He then approached the cat

cautiously and gently lifted it

into his empty rope bag.

The rope bag was secured at

the top and then gently lowered

using climbing equipment.

SAFE: Nathan

Walsh and

Daisy back on

the ground.

Once on the ground, the

SPCA crew transferred Daisy

to a cage. Treetech managing

director Chris Walsh said it has

carried out similar cat rescues in

the past.

“We have even rescued an

entangled magpie out of a tree

when asked to by the Fire Service.

When we are approached

by the likes of the SPCA or Fire

Service to provide specialist tree

services, we are happy to contribute

our time and expertise,”

Mr Walsh said.

The SPCA returned the

microchipped Daisy to her

owner.

Bromley School pupils

inspired by farm visit

THE AIM OF a Bromley School

field trip was to inspire a new

generation of farmers.

Pupils travelled to a farm in

Sheffield on November 4 to get

a taste of farming life. It was the

first time more than half of the

32 year 3 pupils had been on a

farm.

Ferrymead Rotary organised

and funded the visit. Member

Dion Crooks said many of the

pupils suggested they wanted to

be farmers after it.

A farmer showed off a twohour-old

merino lamb and its

mother and about 12 orphan

lambs, which were fed by the

pupils.

The farmer told the children

the story of sheep-farming and

gave a demonstration of the cunning

and skills of five sheepdogs.

The children then had the opportunity

to go horse riding and

for many, it was their first time

up-close with the animals.

Pupils were also taken on a

trip up a hill in a trailer towed by

a farm bike and they then played

on the hillside.

Bromley School team leader

Alistair Cron said: “The kids

were over moon about the trip

and very grateful for the opportunity.’’

FRIENDLY: Ryan Rushworth

was one of 32 Bromley

School pupils who went on a

field trip to experience what

life on a farm is like. ​

Mr Cron said the experience

has been followed by a variety

of follow-up activities including

writing about it, speaking about

it, sharing photos and putting

together a slide show.

He believes the trip will lead

to conversations about farming

between the pupils who went,

their siblings and parents.

Mr Cron said of the skills the

farmer showcased on the day:

“[They] geared and presented

everything at just the right level

for the children and the animals

were certainly a hit.”

Fewer dog

complaints

being made

• By Louis Day

ALMOST 9000 dog-related

complaints were made in the space

of a year by Christchurch residents.

From June 2018 to June this year,

8355 complaints were made to the

city council about dogs barking

and roaming. This was a decrease

on the 9633 complaints made between

June 2017 and June last year.

The city council also investigated

a further 575 “priority one complaints”

relating to dog attacks.

In this period, 1609 infringement

notices were also issued, ranging

from $100 to $750.

The owners of the dogs involved

in attacks can be prosecuted

and, depending on the offence,

may be fined up to $20,000 or imprisonment

for up to three months.

One dog owner was convicted

over the one-year period and

disqualified from owning dogs for

four years. Nine owners were put

on probation.

Four dogs were classified as

dangerous which brings the total

number of dogs on the dangerous

dog register to 55.

The number of registered dogs

in Christchurch has increased

from 38,500 in 2017/18 to 39,127 in

2018/19.

Eco-friendly transport use on the rise

PEOPLE ARE using their cars less

and walking, biking or scooting

more, a survey has found.

The life in Christchurch

transport survey findings show

while travel by car is still the

most popular mode of transport

in the city, there has been an

increase in the use of alternative

ways to get around.

The survey questioned about

3500 Christchurch residents

about their travel habits and the

city’s transport network.

Said city council monitoring

and research team leader Kath

Jamieson: “The proportion of

people who say they are using

their car less now compared to

12 months ago is 27 per cent –

up from 19 per cent in 2018.”

More than 40 per cent of

respondents said they cycle more

often now than they did a year

ago while 21 per cent say they

walk more often.

Ms Jamieson said the arrival

of electric scooters in Christchurch

has also impacted the way

people move around the city.

“Nineteen per cent of

survey participants reported

that they have used a rental e-

scooter more than once a month

in the past 12 months, while

two per cent of those surveyed

said they own their own e-scooter

so it has become a popular

alternative form of transport,’’

ECO-FRIENDLY: The life in Christchurch transport survey has found more people are opting to

cycle, walk and scooter around the city. ​

Ms Jamieson said.

The number of people using

public transport has risen from

29 per cent in 2018, to 32 per

cent this year.

Ms Jamieson said the survey

showed the condition of roads

and footpaths are continuing to

trouble people.

“Fifty-one per cent of the people

surveyed said they were dissatisfied

or very dissatisfied with

the condition of Christchurch’s

roads. Ongoing patch repairs to

road, potholes and uneven road

surfaces are the main reasons

people gave for their dissatisfaction,’’

Ms Jamieson said.

The city council recently

revealed an investment case that

PEGASUS POST

seeks $25-30 million funding to

improve the safety and condition

on more than 100 roads in

suburban areas of the city.

The areas proposed for

Woolston, Spreydon, Somerfield,

Waltham, Beckenham and

Riccarton.

Dux awards run in the family

• By Louis Day

FEW PARENTS are lucky

enough to see one of their

children named dux – but

Lianne and Steven Everingham

have seen all four receive the

honour.

Recently their youngest child

Rebecca was crowned Marian

College dux, making her the

fourth in the family to receive

the accolade.

After watching her three

siblings earn their titles, Rebecca

said being named dux was a

“relief.”

“I did not want to be the only

child that did not get it,” she

said.

“I just wanted to be like them

[her siblings]. Ever since I was little

I looked up to them and they

were my inspiration.”

Rebecca credits part of the

family’s academic success to the

“lots of Coke Zero in the house.”

“I think we should stop buying

it because we are all a bit addicted

but it just gets us through

those long nights of study.”

She said having two teachers as

parents also helped.

“Ever since we were little, we

saw mum and dad working hard

and with both parents being

teachers, that love for learning

ACHIEVERS: (From left to right) – Elizabeth, Rebecca, Hannah and Matthew Everingham were all

named dux during their time at school.

really rubbed off on us.”

Her mother works at Avonside

Girls’ High and her father at

Christ’s College.

Mrs Everingham said “it was

pretty cool” to see their fourth

child receive the honour.

“That was a lovely feeling as a

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

parent and to see all the support

from her friends and teachers

was really great,” she said.

Rebecca plans to go to Victoria

University in Wellington next

year to study ecology and biodiversity,

as well as literary and

creative communications.

Her brother Matthew, who was

the St Bede’s College dux in 2012,

graduated from Canterbury

University with law and music

degrees and is now working in

the United States as a musical

director.

Their sister Elizabeth was

crowned Marian College dux in

2014 and has since completed

degrees in law and history.

And Hannah was Marian

College dux in 2016 and is

currently studying physics

and spanish at Canterbury

University.

There is not much better

than a cup of tea or

coffee and a slice of cake,

especially when it almost

looks too good to eat. Here’s

one you can easily decorate

yourself

Morning Magpie’s carrot

cake

For the cake

2 free-range eggs and 2 freerange

egg yolks

4 free range egg whites

320g flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground cloves

400g neutral-tasting oil such as

sunflower or canola

540g white sugar

100g chopped walnuts

100g desiccated coconut

270g peeled and grated carrot

(about two carrots)

For the icing

525g cream cheese

210g softened (to room

temperature) butter

105g icing sugar

75g honey

fresh thyme

Directions

Tuesday November 19 2019

Tasty Bites

Cake

Separate the eggs (six in total).

Put the whole eggs and yolks

in one bowl, and the whites in

another large, clean and dry

metal bowl.

You will be left with two

spare egg yolks (with a little

imagination you can find a way

to put them to good use in some

other noble kitchen endeavour).

Add a pinch of salt to the egg

whites and, with an electric

beater, whisk until they form

stiff white peaks (the salt helps to

stabilise them). Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the

sugar and oil on high for 2min.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

How to make a cake taste as good as it looks

Add the whole eggs and egg

yolks, continuing to mix until

incorporated.

Use a rubber spatula to mix the

walnuts, coconut, and carrot into

the creamed oil and eggs.

Sift the flour, baking powder

and soda, and spices into the wet

mix, and delicately fold through.

Fold one-third of the whipped

egg whites into the rest of the

batter, followed by the rest of

them. Don’t worry if there are a

few streaks of white left – this is

far preferable to over-mixing the

cake batter.

Divide the

batter between

two greased

round silicon cake

moulds. Make sure

to weigh as you

are filling them,

so that the two

rounds end up

evenly sized.

Bake in the

centre of the oven

for 40min at 160

deg C.

After baking,

let the cake cool

completely in the

moulds (at least

four hours).

If you are

leaving it

overnight before

icing – this is a

good idea – wrap

the rounds in cling

film once cooled and removed

from moulds.

Assembly and decoration

Make sure all ingredients are at

room temperature, and also clear

a shelf in your fridge that a large

chopping board will fit on.

In a large bowl, beat the

cream cheese on high for about

4min, until it takes on a silky

consistency. Beat in the butter.

Add the icing sugar and honey,

and reduce the beater to a lower

PEGASUS POST

speed until they are fully mixed

through. Then your icing is

ready.

If the cake rose into a dome

shape while baking, remove the

rounded top with a bread knife

to make sure both rounds are

level.

Place one cake round on a

large chopping board, and spread

a 1cm thick layer of icing on top

of it. Stack the other round on

it, making sure the two are well

aligned. Don’t worry if some of

the filling comes out the sides.

Use an offset spatula to spread

a thin layer of icing over the top

and sides of the assembled cake.

It doesn’t matter if you can see

the cake through this layer. Once

it is covered, place the cake in the

fridge for one hour. When this

first layer of icing sets, it prevents

any dark cake crumbs getting

mixed up in the final layer of

white icing.

Once the first layer is set,

remove the cake from the fridge

and apply the rest of the icing as

you see fit. You can put a thick

layer on the top and a scant layer

around the sides, but this is just

a matter of taste – you should

experiment and find a style you

like. Chill the cake for another

hour before cutting. Garnish

with fresh thyme leaves and flaky

sea salt. Use a hot bread knife to

cut the cake, cleaning it between

each slice.

SHIFT gears into a new career in tech

Tech is big and getting bigger. The technology sector boomed

in FY2019, cementing its position as one of our largest

export earners according to the latest annual TIN (Technology

Investment Network) Report. The number of people employed

by the technology sector increased by 7.9 per cent last year

to 51,569, and Canterbury’s tech revenue alone grew by 10.3

per cent. It has never been a better time to add tech to your

skill set and start your journey into NZ’s fastest growing sector.

The future is tech. Be part of it.

When it comes to the world of tech, the employment

opportunities are virtually limitless. SIGNAL’s SHIFT

programme was created to help you explore, experience

and embrace those opportunities, adding to your

qualifications and expanding your earning potential in this

vibrant, fast-paced sector.

SHIFT fast-tracks your tech learning with an industryfocused

one-year programme, that not only boosts your

skills, but gives you practical industry experience and an

industry network to help you move into tech.

Quick. Smart. Relevant.

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for

those who are seeking a new career path, who may or may

not have a tech background. Open to degree holders in

any discipline, SHIFT learners have come from diverse

backgrounds such as medicine, philosophy, sociology,

commerce, geography, marketing, engineering and

humanities.

And if you already have a tech related degree, you can

expand your expertise by focusing on a new area and

gaining valuable industry skills and connections.

A unique learning experience.

Using immersive studio-based learning and real-world

industry experience, SHIFT produces graduates with a

solid base of core tech skills, as well as the communication

and collaborative skills required in the tech industry.

SHIFT enables you to meet and work with local tech

employers. You will complete group projects with tech

mentors, and also gain experience via a 200-hour

placement within industry. This allows you to add value to

your host and to showcase your capabilities.

Opportunities.

Tech roles exist in nearly every area, from aviation to zoology,

and career possibilities are extensive. During SHIFT you

can focus on software design and development, business

analysis, data science, web design, project management,

user experience design, technical writing, service delivery,

and the list goes on.

Diversity is important in the tech sector. The best designed

products incorporate many viewpoints to meet customer

requirements. Tech firms are actively recruiting to increase

gender and ethnic diversity across their employees, and

can sometimes offer flexible hours and remote working

opportunities.

SHIFT starts early 2020 and limited partial

scholarships are also available.

To find out more about what tech career

opportunities exist and how you can start your

journey into tech in 2020, contact us on 0800

REAL ESTATE

Anything but ordinary - As is, where is

84 Glenstrae Road, Redcliffs

Auction: 5 Dec. unless sold prior

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 4 toilets

3 living rooms | study | gym

4 car-garage | Listing SM0277

Brimming with personality and enjoying

extensive views out over the ocean,

this exceptionally spacious residence

was designed by Wayne Seebeck and

is uniquely appealing. This property is

currently insured, deemed repairable but

is being sold on an ‘as-is, where-is’ basis,

with highly motivated sellers.

Lashings of colour give the home

an endearing edge, and the selection

of sizeable windows maximise the

magnificent ocean views which are offered

in this hillside setting.

The vast 447m2 floor plan is ideally

proportioned for families and includes

3 bedrooms, a study, 2 bathrooms, 4

toilets, 3 separate living zones, a gym/

wine cellar/storeroom on the ground floor

and oversized 4 car garaging. There’s easy

drive-on access with plenty of off-street

parking and turning space.

A modern kitchen has granite benchtops

and is centrally positioned within the open

plan area which accommodates dining and

unwinding, while adjoining a media room.

Both rooms feature bi-fold doors that flow

outdoors for ease of entertaining.

An expansive formal dining room

provides further living options as it

incorporates a sitting area that boasts

commanding views over the water.

Of the bedrooms, the upstairs master

is generous in size and has the luxury of

a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and balcony

access while the main bathroom services

the other 2 bedrooms and a total of four

toilets caters brilliantly to busy households.

Electric ceiling heating, underfloor

heating and a gas fire assist with delivering

a comfortable climate while technological

convenience is provided by an intercom,

extensive speaker system and a vacuum

system.

Superbly equipped for summertime,

the property comes complete with an

in-ground pool which is complemented

by a spa and surrounding patio to ensure

it’s an area where the whole family will

congregate for BBQ’s, relaxing and

lapping up the last of the sun. Bask in

the professionally landscaped grounds

with an auto irrigation system for added

convenience.

Situated a short drive from the

Ferrymead and Redcliffs shops, while

a little over five-minutes from Sumner

Beach, this property ensures you can

embrace a coastal lifestyle while remaining

within a 20-minute drive of the central

city.

This distinctive and generously

proportioned property will inspire

those looking for an “as-is” to repair for

themselves. Totally liveable or rentable

now with excellent resale value in the

street. A full information pack and concept

drawings for re-development are available

on request.

Auction date: Thursday 5 Dec. 12:00pm

(Grenadier House, 98 Moorhouse Ave)

unless sold prior

Open Homes: Wednesdays and Sundays

1:00pm - 1:45pm.
