But she was in her early 20s<br />

when she decided to turn her<br />

flair for the piano into a fulltime<br />

career.<br />

It was the late 1960s, and Mrs<br />

Stott had returned initially to<br />

Dunedin from studying on a<br />

scholarship at the Royal Academy<br />

of Music in London and<br />

needed a way to support her<br />

two young children.<br />

But while making a career of<br />

teaching piano full time can be<br />

a challenging path, Mrs Stott<br />

quickly established herself when<br />

she moved to Christchurch in<br />

Police<br />

identify<br />

window<br />

smashers<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

POLICE HAVE identified two<br />

alleged offenders they believe<br />

threw rocks through the windows<br />

of multiple homes in Bishopdale<br />

and Casebrook last year.<br />

Senior Sergeant Roy Appley said<br />

the pair were identified following<br />

inquiries and now a detailed investigation<br />

will follow, once all of<br />

the victims have<br />

been identified.<br />

“Formal<br />

charges will be<br />

laid once this is<br />

complete. We<br />

are pleased to<br />

get the matter<br />

Roy Appley<br />

to this stage, but<br />

it will take quite a bit more time<br />

to get to the conclusion of the<br />

investigation,” he said.<br />

Police believe there may be<br />

more victims who have not yet<br />

filed reports with police and<br />

are encouraging them to come<br />

forward.<br />

In November, Nor’West <strong>News</strong><br />

revealed police were performing<br />

a number of covert operations<br />

and increasing its presence in<br />

Bishopdale, in a bid to catch the<br />

offenders after at least 12 reports<br />

were made.<br />

Richmond, St Albans attractive<br />

areas for first home buyers<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

ST ALBANS and Richmond have<br />

been singled out as some of the<br />

suburbs which could attract first<br />

home buyers this year.<br />

Harcourts Real Estate agent<br />

Jonny Nicholls said properties in<br />

St Albans and Richmond were<br />

well-liked among first home<br />

buyers last year and expected this<br />

to continue this<br />

year.<br />

“These areas<br />

are quite affordable.<br />

You get a<br />

lot of house, a lot<br />

of land, you get<br />

the school zones,<br />

Jonny<br />

Nicholls<br />

you get the close<br />

proximity to the<br />

city, that’s why<br />

they are quite<br />

popular,” he said.<br />

Statistics from Core Logic show<br />

Richmond has a median property<br />

value of $358,850 and St Albans a<br />

median value of $579,000.<br />

Mr Nicholls also expected<br />

Addington, which has a median<br />

value of $355,450, to continue to<br />

attract investors looking to rent<br />

out properties.<br />

“Addington proves to be popular<br />

for investors because you can<br />

get cheap property and get good<br />

deals. It is high density so developers<br />

also find it really appealing.<br />

“The likes of places like Phillipstown<br />

and Linwood have probably<br />

got a way to go but it is cheap<br />

and affordable so there could be a<br />

fair bit of interest there.”<br />

Mr Nicholls said there was increasing<br />

interest in Christchurch<br />

from people living outside the<br />

city.<br />

“Seventeen per cent of our<br />

inquiries have come from outside<br />

of Christchurch.<br />

That is almost<br />

double to what<br />

we have had in<br />

previous years<br />

and talking to<br />

other agents<br />

in town this<br />

is probably a<br />

“Most of those inquiries are<br />

coming from Auckland, you can of the city to experience some ton to be particularly popular<br />

get two houses (in Christchurch) “overdue catch-up growth.” amongst first home buyers in<br />

for the price of one up there. He believes any suburb with Christchurch this year.<br />

“Instead of someone putting<br />

$1m into a home up there than the national median of lipstown and parts of Woolston<br />

a median property value lower He saw Linwood, Opawa, Phil-<br />

Phillipstown had the lowest<br />

‘It was a lovely surprise’<br />

• From page 1<br />

It tops off a successful year<br />

for the 81-year-old, who was<br />

made a life member of the New<br />

Zealand Institute of Registered<br />

Music Teachers and was selected<br />

to be an Associate of the Royal<br />

Academy of Music last year.<br />

Like many dedicated to<br />

serving their community, Mrs<br />

Stott was left “very surprised” to<br />

receive the award.<br />

“It is not anything I ever expected<br />

to happen. It was a lovely<br />

surprise,” she said.<br />

Mrs Stott’s passion for teaching<br />

and playing the piano began<br />

in high school when she began<br />

helping her own piano teacher<br />

with teaching.<br />

“I have just enjoyed it really,”<br />

she said.<br />

As well as taking private lessons,<br />

she taught music at Canterbury<br />

University for 20 years.<br />

When she reached her 80s,<br />

many asked her why she was still<br />

teaching.<br />

“As long as I could do it well,<br />

why would I stop. The children<br />

who came to my home were so<br />

interesting and lovely,” Mrs Stott<br />

said.<br />

It was only in March last year<br />

she retired, due to health issues –<br />

and has been visited by many of<br />

her students since.<br />

was known as a natural at<br />

playing the piano, from when<br />

she first began learning at the<br />

age of five.<br />

Some of Mrs Stott’s most successful<br />

music teaching career, Mrs Stott<br />

also became a well-known performer<br />

and composer.<br />

For many years a national<br />

artist for Radio New Zealand. In<br />

2001 she began performing with<br />

her piano trio, Tresoli.<br />

Following the February 22,<br />

2011, earthquake Mrs Stott<br />

helped save the Clef Club,<br />

now known as Music Alive<br />

which provides performance<br />

opportunities for amateur<br />

musicians.<br />

She was also one of the first<br />

New Zealanders to be appointed<br />

as an international examiner<br />

for the Associated Board of the<br />

Royal Schools of Music in London<br />

in 1991.<br />

“It is quite demanding. You do<br />

need incredible concentration,”<br />

she said.<br />

On her first tour as an examiner<br />

in Hong Kong and Macao,<br />

she recalled assessing 1000<br />

candidates over 12 weeks.<br />

“The adults get more nervous<br />

than the children. I did have an<br />

experience in Hong Kong. A<br />

woman came in and she was so<br />

nervous she couldn’t get past the<br />

first few notes,” Mrs Stott said.<br />

She said while the candidate<br />

Inspiring children<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

WHEN DAVID Denton first<br />

started up an event aimed at<br />

inspiring children to pursue<br />

fishing – he never thought it<br />

would grow to the success it is<br />

today.<br />

In the 1980s he had been<br />

tasked by a group of influential<br />

New Zealanders including<br />

former Prime Minister Sir Jack<br />

Marshall and long-distance runner<br />

Murray Halberg to set up<br />

an event aimed to get families<br />

outdoors.<br />

Upon receiving the phone call,<br />

the Yaldhurst resident went on<br />

to establish Take a Kid Fishing<br />

– an annual family fishing event<br />

at The Groynes which initially<br />

attracted several hundred people<br />

on its first day in 1988.<br />

Years of dedication to outdoor<br />

recreation and supporting youth<br />

has seen Mr Denton recognised<br />

with a Queen’s Service Medal.<br />

He said it<br />

was “very<br />

special” to<br />

receive the<br />

honour and it<br />

“came out of<br />

the blue.”<br />

More than 20 years on, the<br />

Take a Kid Fishing event has<br />

grown to attract 6000 people<br />

– which aims to teach children<br />

Tuesday <strong>January</strong> <strong>14</strong> <strong>2020</strong> 5<br />

to go fishing<br />

Mr Denton said he feels all the<br />

volunteers helping out with Take<br />

a Kid Fishing deserve to be part<br />

of the QSM he received.<br />

He said on the main days, more<br />

than 50-75 volunteers are needed<br />

to make the event a success.<br />

The Isaac Conservation and<br />

Wildlife Trust sponsors the<br />

salmon for the event which<br />

costs “thousands of dollars,” Mr<br />

Denton said.<br />

“We want to keep it free. We<br />

have good equipment, we can<br />

loan them a rod and reel and<br />

good fishermen. It is a very safe<br />

venue,” Mr Denton said.<br />

Since 1988, Mr Denton has<br />

formed many relationships with<br />

sponsors, retailers, clubs and<br />

organisations to ensure the event<br />

remains free.<br />

“That is something I am holding<br />

onto dearly.”<br />

While Take A Kid Fishing<br />

has been a successful event, it is<br />

only one of Mr Denton’s achievements.<br />

In 1988 he also established<br />

the New Zealand Future Fishing<br />

Foundation to get children<br />

involved in fishing.<br />

Mr Denton was the Kids Fishing<br />

Charitable Trust chairman<br />

for 20 years, along with served<br />

as the New Zealand Sports Dealers<br />

Federation president and<br />

executive member of the Sports<br />

Industry Association.<br />

A third-generation fisherman,<br />

his father got him into fishing at<br />

the age of 10 in the south branch<br />

of Waimakariri River.<br />

Since then he has fished for<br />

about 75 years.<br />

Mr Denton said most of the<br />

time his interest is in catching<br />

the fish rather than taking them<br />

home to cook – and will often let<br />

them go.<br />

“Fish were a lot more plentiful<br />

than they are today. I caught the<br />

bug and loved it.”<br />

Fishing event will be held on<br />

September 27.<br />

Dedication to athletes<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

THE MAN responsible for<br />

recruiting hundreds of potential<br />

athletes to represent New<br />

Zealand in the Paralympic<br />

Games has been awarded the<br />

New Zealand Order of Merit.<br />

Sockburn’s Hadleigh Pierson<br />

has been recognised with the<br />

honour after contributing nearly<br />

20 years of service to the parasports<br />

community.<br />

He said it was “very nice” to<br />

receive the award and was lucky<br />

to be in a job he enjoys.<br />

Pierson, 39, has had several<br />

roles at ParaFed Canterbury,<br />

based in Papanui. From 2001 to<br />

2005, he was employed as their<br />

sports co-ordinator and guided<br />

the Canterbury athletes through<br />

the 2004 Summer Paralympic<br />

Games.<br />

He developed programme<br />

New Zealand of Talent Identification<br />

while working at Paralympics<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Pierson has played a significant<br />

role in identifying talented<br />

athletes as well as establishing<br />

and maintaining athlete development<br />

squads in the lead-up to<br />

the London 2012 and Rio 2016<br />

Paralympic Games.<br />

While he was born with<br />

osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle<br />

HONOURED: Hadleigh<br />

Pierson has dedicated nearly<br />

20 years of service to the<br />

para-sports community.<br />

bones), he has a successful sports<br />

career and was selected to represent<br />

New Zealand Paralympic<br />

teams for Sydney in 2000 and<br />

Athens in 2004.<br />

In both events, he made the<br />

top eight and he describes the<br />

opportunity of taking part in the<br />

competition as the “pinnacle”<br />

for parasport. He stopped swimming<br />

in 2004.<br />

Pierson said living with brittle<br />

bones has never affected his life<br />

or his swimming – other than he<br />

uses a wheelchair for mobility.<br />

“I have to be careful and aware<br />

so I don’t put myself in a situation<br />

that gets a fracture,” he said.<br />

Brittle bones is a genetic<br />

disorder characterised by fragile<br />

bones that break easily.<br />

Over his life, Pierson has had<br />

about 30-40 fractures – but he<br />

said that was mostly from when<br />

he was younger and now that<br />

he is older he makes “smarter<br />

decisions.”<br />

“It hasn’t stopped me at all,”<br />

he said.<br />

Getting into swimming was a<br />

natural progression for Pierson,<br />

he started at the age of nine<br />

before competing from 10.<br />

“Swimming naturally happened<br />

– whenever I broke my leg<br />

I would be in swimming to do<br />

rehab,” he said.<br />

In both events, he made the<br />

top eight.<br />

In 1998 he competed in the<br />

World Para Swimming Championships<br />

at the old Queen Elizabeth<br />

II Park placing fifth.<br />

In 2015, Pierson returned to<br />

ParaFed Canterbury as sports<br />

manager.<br />

He said the greatest part of the<br />

role is seeing the achievements<br />

of young people coming through<br />

the sporting ranks.<br />

His goal is to continue<br />

providing more opportunities<br />

for athletes.<br />

Plunge ‘as cold as it was 50 years ago’<br />

• By Philip Chandler and<br />

Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

FIFTY YEARS after ushering in<br />

the 1970s by jumping into Lake<br />

Wakatipu and blowing his bugle,<br />

Bishopdale’s Robin Bickley<br />

returned to Queenstown to<br />

welcome the new decade in the<br />

same quirky fashion.<br />

After accepting the challenge<br />

from Queenstown mate Lawrence<br />

McSkimming, Mr Bickley,<br />

an MC for the city council’s<br />

monthly citizenship ceremonies,<br />

said: “I tell you what, the water is<br />

as cold as it was 50 years ago.”<br />

“My friends down there put<br />

me up to it. They said come on<br />

it has been 50 years, you need to<br />

celebrate this anniversary,” Mr<br />

Bickley said.<br />

Mr Bickley recalled jumping<br />

off the pier three New Year’s eves<br />

in a row, but he entered the water<br />

more sedately this time.<br />

“There was some trepidation,<br />

after all I am now 75 years old.<br />

But I considered myself fully fit<br />

and accepted it,” he said.<br />

While Mr Bickley entered<br />

the lake alone, he had a “huge”<br />

crowd to cheer him on.<br />

He said it wasn’t taking the<br />

plunge in Lake Wakatipu which<br />

was the attraction – it was being<br />

able to go into the lake playing<br />

the bugle.<br />

Once in the lake, he again<br />

played Reveille on the same wellworn<br />

bugle, with strings hanging<br />

off it, that has accompanied him<br />

almost his whole life.<br />

“It was originally from the<br />

Southland Boys’ High School<br />

brass band or bugle band.”<br />

A lot has happened since Mr<br />

Bickley first jumped into Lake<br />

Wakatipu in 1970.<br />

Born and raised in Riverton,<br />

he went on to study a Bachelor of<br />

Arts at Otago University, before<br />

moving to Christchurch to study<br />

teaching for a year.<br />

CHILLY: Bishopdale’s Robin Bickey ushers in 1970 and <strong>2020</strong><br />

by blowing his bugle in Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown, in these<br />

two photos taken 50 years apart.<br />

His first teaching job was at<br />

Whakatane High School.<br />

In 1969, Mr Bickley travelled<br />

to Canada to teach for one year<br />

before moving to Thailand in<br />

1970.<br />

Initially, he taught English<br />

before becoming a training consultant<br />

for the Thailand Ministry<br />

of Agriculture and Cooperatives.<br />

His role involved helping<br />

Thailand government offices to<br />

design effective training programmes<br />

for their staff members<br />

to work in agriculture development.<br />

In 1991, Mr Bickley, his wife<br />

and two children moved to<br />

Christchurch, where he went on<br />

to work for the city council for<br />

<strong>14</strong> years.<br />

He worked as an employment<br />

co-ordinator in human resources<br />

with his role involving advertising<br />

job vacancies, collating job<br />

applications and distributing<br />

documents.<br />

About 20 years ago, Mr Bickley<br />

offered to MC the city council’s<br />

citizenship committees – and<br />

has been in the role ever since.<br />

He now works as a freelance<br />

professional translator and<br />

interpreter.<br />

Events to promote key<br />

dementia message<br />

PEOPLE WITH dementia are<br />

still themselves.<br />

This will be the message<br />

promoted during Dementia<br />

Canterbury’s Walk for Dementia<br />

on February 2 at Nga Puna Wai<br />

Sports Hub.<br />

This is part of the Still Me<br />

campaign, which is aimed at<br />

reducing the stigma associated<br />

with dementia.<br />

An estimated 7500 people in<br />

Canterbury have dementia, and<br />

with an ageing population, this<br />

number is expected to triple by<br />

2050.<br />

A diagnosis of dementia can<br />

bring a sense of relief because it<br />

explains changes in behaviour,<br />

but for many, it creates a fear of<br />

what lies ahead.<br />

Dementia Canterbury manager<br />

Darral Campbell said whatever<br />

the future holds, a person with<br />

dementia is “still me” and can<br />

live well.<br />

Dementia Canterbury is<br />

supporting the nationwide campaign,<br />

co-ordinated by Dementia<br />

New Zealand, with events in<br />

Christchurch and Canterbury<br />

including the Walk for Dementia<br />

next month and a charity golf<br />

tournament on March 6 at<br />

Pegasus Golf and Sports Club.<br />

Both events will raise money to<br />

pay for the free support services<br />

and education programmes offered<br />

by Dementia Canterbury<br />

throughout Canterbury and the<br />

West Coast.<br />

Ms Campbell said contrary<br />

to what many people think,<br />

dementia is not a normal part<br />

of ageing. It affects people of all<br />

cultures, intellectual abilities and<br />

lifestyles, and while it is more<br />

common in people over the age<br />

of 65, it can also affect people as<br />

young as 35.<br />

“The Still Me campaign has<br />

been designed to help change the<br />

way we think, feel and talk about<br />

dementia. It is a reminder that<br />

we need to see the person not the<br />

condition and to recognise the<br />

brave person who is supporting<br />

them,” said Ms Campbell.<br />

DAMAGE: Rocks have been thrown through windows in<br />

Bishopdale and Casebrook.<br />

Elderly in several<br />

homes targeted<br />

• From page 1<br />

The reports included at least<br />

three elderly people living alone<br />

who had their windows smashed<br />

by the offenders.<br />

One victim, a 94-year-old<br />

woman, was sitting at home<br />

watching television when a rock<br />

smashed through her lounge<br />

window.<br />

She got up to call the<br />

police, and when she was out<br />

of the lounge, a second rock<br />

came flying through the<br />

already broken window.<br />

The woman phoned a neighbour<br />

for help, and not long after<br />

the neighbour arrived, a third<br />

rock was thrown at her kitchen<br />

window, which luckily did not<br />

smash.<br />

Residents living on Highsted,<br />

Veitches and Cavendish Rds<br />

in Bishopdale and Casebrook<br />

reported similar incidents.<br />

Homes on Harewood Rd<br />

and Cotswold Ave were also<br />

targeted.<br />

ACHIEVER: Olympia Gymnastics Club’s Payton Hutchinson in<br />

action on the beam. ​<br />

US training camp goal<br />

for young gymnast<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

PAYTON Hutchinson’s passion<br />

for gymnastics will hopefully get<br />

her to the United States this year.<br />

The nine-year-old who commutes<br />

to Hornby’s Olympia<br />

Gymnastics Club from Rangiora<br />

four times a week for three-hour<br />

sessions, is looking to raise more<br />

than $3000 to attend an international<br />

camp in Pennsylvania<br />

in June.<br />

The money raised will allow<br />

her to spend two weeks at the<br />

camp, where she would do 20<br />

hours of gymnastics training a<br />

week.<br />

She would be coached by some<br />

of the best international coaches<br />

and will get the chance to meet<br />

some Olympians that also come<br />

to the camp to talk.<br />

Payton’s dream is to represent<br />

New Zealand at the Olympics<br />

and get a scholarship to attend<br />

an American college and then<br />

become a gymnastics coach.<br />

Payton’s mother, Natasha<br />

Huchinson said her daughter<br />

had being doing gymnastics<br />

recreationally since she was four<br />

and had been competing for the<br />

past three years.<br />

Last year, Payton finished<br />

ninth in the South Island for her<br />

age.<br />

“She has a love of the sport,<br />

and she’s had three weeks off<br />

over Christmas and it’s like she<br />

lost a limb,” Ms Hutchinson<br />

said.<br />

“She just can’t wait to get back<br />

into it for the year.’’<br />

The trip will cost $8000 all up<br />

with the hope she will attend<br />

this year or in 2021.<br />

“It’s a great opportunity for<br />

her to go to this summer camp<br />

and improve her skills so it<br />

would be great to get her there,’’<br />

Ms Hutchinson said.<br />

A Givealittle page has been set<br />

up to help with her fundraising.<br />

Oaklands School<br />

Oaklands School in Halswell is being<br />

transformed, with three new purpose<br />

built blocks and the refurbishment of<br />

remaining buildings.<br />

Last year the redevelopment of the<br />

school began as part of the Canterburywide<br />

school building programme<br />

following the earthquakes.<br />

The first part of the redevelopment<br />

involved a new building linking and<br />

expanding the junior block; a new<br />

administration block; the transformation<br />

of the former office into a dedicated<br />

high-technology hub for Yr 7 and 8<br />

students; and construction of a new<br />

combined library and flexible learning<br />

space.<br />

This year the redevelopment continues<br />

– and will be completed – with the<br />

refurbishment of existing buildings,<br />

including two long brick ‘Canterbury<br />

blocks’ that were built in the 1960s when<br />

the school opened.<br />

Principal Margaret Trotter says they are<br />

now more than half way through the<br />

Welcome to new students for the <strong>2020</strong> school year.<br />

Our staff are looking forward to meeting you and<br />

we anticipate yet another ‘Brilliant’ year at Breens<br />

Intermediate School.<br />

Welcome back to our Year 8 students. Hopefully you<br />

have all had a good holiday and are excited about your<br />

learning for this year.<br />

<strong>2020</strong> school year commences:<br />

Year 8 students – Thursday 30th <strong>January</strong> at 8.50am<br />

All students – Friday 31st February at 8.50am<br />

On Friday 31st <strong>January</strong> – Year 7 & the new Year 8 students<br />

are to assemble at the front of the school. We will have staff<br />

& students there to show you where to go.<br />

At 9am there will be a Mihi Whakatau to welcome new<br />

students to Breens. Parents & Whanau are invited to join us<br />

for the welcome to our Breens school community.<br />

The Breens school office will re-open on<br />

Tuesday 28th <strong>January</strong>, <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

redevelopment and the school campus<br />

is already looking and feeling different.<br />

“It is exciting to see the changes that<br />

have happened already and for students<br />

to be occupying the new buildings. It<br />

is also wonderful to anticipate how the<br />

improved facilities will cater for current<br />

and future generations of students in our<br />

community,’’ she said.<br />

A lot of effort had gone into minimising<br />

disruption to teaching, learning and the<br />

neighbouring community during the<br />

project, and everyone’s patience was<br />

greatly appreciated, Mrs Trotter said.<br />

The Ministry of Education funded the<br />

‘building’ part of the redevelopment<br />

but a lot of costs, such as playgrounds,<br />

landscaping, furniture, curtains and new<br />

technology items, would be paid for<br />

by the school’s Board of Trustees and<br />

the Parent Teacher Association, Mrs<br />

Trotter said. This community input to the<br />

school’s future was valued, she said.<br />

The redevelopment is scheduled to<br />

finish before the end of <strong>2020</strong>.<br />

Chisnallwood Intermediate Living by faith in the heart<br />

of the city<br />

Established as a Junior High School,<br />

Chisnallwood is specifically designed to<br />

meet the needs of students in their preadolescent<br />

years. This design has been<br />

carefully developed over many years<br />

and is based on the best that has been<br />

seen in New Zealand and Internationally.<br />

By enrolling at this school you are<br />

opening doorways to opportunities that<br />

will prepare you fully for secondary and<br />

beyond. A well-balanced mixture of<br />

specialist and home room teaching in<br />

this highly resourced environment will<br />

capture your interest and attention in a<br />

manner that will ensure your success.<br />

Welcome to Casebrook<br />

Intermediate School<br />

Year 7 & 8 students are a unique<br />

age group that we specialise in<br />

educating. Our staff and school<br />

resources are all geared for this<br />

stage of personal development<br />

and focus on providing as a diverse<br />

range of learning opportunities to<br />

create a rounded and engaged<br />

individual.<br />

Our learning environment is<br />

supported by a strong focus on<br />

our school values of Respect<br />

(Whakaute), Excellence<br />

(Panekiretanga) and Perseverance<br />

(Hiringa). Through these ‘REP’<br />

values we develop within each<br />

student a sense of self worth<br />

to realise their importance as<br />

a member of our Casebrook<br />

community.<br />

Our school environment is one<br />

where students are safe and<br />

have the confidence to take risks<br />

with their learning. In this way<br />

the students at Casebrook are<br />

supported and encouraged to<br />

become self-motived, independent<br />

learners.<br />

We value the partnership between<br />

home and school. Together<br />

we can create an environment<br />

where we foster feelings of pride<br />

and belonging. We are sure you<br />

will enjoy being a part of our<br />

community and would welcome<br />

the opportunity to meet with you<br />

to discuss your child’s future at<br />

Casebrook.<br />

Recognised as a leader in its field,<br />

Chisnallwood is nationally renowned<br />

for its achievements, particularly in the<br />

areas of music, the arts, sport and all<br />

academic endeavours. This success<br />

is brought about by the quality of the<br />

resources we have and the commitment<br />

of the highly trained and dedicated<br />

teaching staff.<br />

Our values of Respect, Relationships,<br />

Responsibilities and Resilience (Our 4Rs)<br />

enable our students to fulfill our motto<br />

which is to challenge the margins of<br />

time and explore what is beyond.<br />

Papanui High School -<br />

Preparing students<br />

for their future<br />

Giving students the opportunity to study<br />

from an innovative and broad curriculum<br />

is critical to providing each student a<br />

pathway that meets their individual<br />

needs. We allow for a greater range and<br />

flexibility in subject choice including<br />

the utilization of the secondary/<br />

tertiary interface. This reinforces<br />

the philosophy underpinning<br />

personalised learning and<br />

is strongly supported<br />

by understanding our<br />

students’ interests,<br />

passions, talents, and<br />

ultimately their career<br />

aspirations.<br />

We understand that<br />

for effective learning<br />

to take place, it has to<br />

be implemented in such<br />

a way that students will be<br />

highly engaged. The school<br />

does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way by<br />

creating learning environments that<br />

allow our students to see value in what<br />

they do and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is<br />

what we represent and we demonstrate<br />

this by having young adults leave our<br />

school as confident learners who have<br />

gained the appropriate qualifications<br />

and social skills to become valued<br />

contributing members of society.<br />

All that we do here is reinforced by<br />

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,<br />

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and<br />

high expectations – what we call “Our<br />

Full service Model”. The school highly<br />

values the connectedness<br />

of curricular and cocurricular<br />

learning. We<br />

have a philosophical<br />

understanding that the<br />

holistic development<br />

of the student<br />

is critical to their<br />

individual success.<br />

The school has worked<br />

hard to consolidate recent<br />

initiatives to ensure sustained<br />

and continuous improvement. You<br />

are invited to view our website, school<br />

charter, ERO report, and/or contact the<br />

school for more information.<br />

We look forward to welcoming all<br />

prospective students and their families/<br />

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo<br />

Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te Kura Huruhuru<br />

Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the<br />

Hornby High School community, and a<br />

special welcome to those of you who<br />

are new to our community.<br />

We begin <strong>2020</strong> eager to set our new<br />

‘normal’ as we begin our first full year in<br />

our wonderful new buildings. The impact<br />

of those buildings on our young people<br />

and staff alike has been enormous. Our<br />

experience through the end of 2019<br />

was that learning was calm, settled,<br />

and focused. One visitor to our kura in<br />

late 2019 described the ‘vibe’ as very<br />

much like that feeling you get when you<br />

arrive home after a hard day at work: a<br />

place where you can just ‘be’, a place<br />

where you can settle to what you need<br />

to do with purpose and clarity. What a<br />

New school coming<br />

Plans for a new Marian College at<br />

Papanui in 2023 are advancing, with a<br />

concept design expected in coming<br />

months.<br />

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou<br />

Davidson says students, staff and the<br />

school community have helped provide<br />

feedback and ideas, which has informed<br />

design. “Our new school and grounds<br />

will reflect and celebrate our Catholic<br />

special character, cultural narrative,<br />

values, heritage and story.<br />

wonderful description from a visitor, and<br />

a description that equally matches our<br />

own experiences.<br />

We also begin the year with some<br />

exciting changes to our junior curriculum<br />

as we make learning more connected to<br />

the real world, more connected across<br />

subject areas, and with a new pastoral<br />

system that will evolve over the next five<br />

years giving even greater support to our<br />

learners.<br />

Coming on the back of continually<br />

improving achievement results across<br />

the school, these are exciting times.<br />

exciting time ahead,” Mrs Davidson says.<br />

SENIOR LIVING<br />

Six exercises to help Sciatica<br />

Reclining pigeon pose<br />

Pigeon pose is a common yoga pose. It works to open the<br />

hips. There are multiple versions of this stretch. The first<br />

is a starting version known as the reclining pigeon pose.<br />

If you are just starting your treatment, you should try the<br />

reclining pose first.<br />

1. While on your back, bring your right leg up to a right<br />

angle. Clasp both hands behind the thigh, locking your<br />

fingers.<br />

2. Lift your left leg and place your right ankle on top of the<br />

left knee.<br />

3. Hold the position for a moment. This helps stretch<br />

the tiny piriformis muscle, which sometimes becomes<br />

inflamed and presses against the sciatic nerve, causing<br />

pain.<br />

4. Do the same exercise with the other leg. Once you can<br />

do the reclining version without pain, work with your<br />

health care professional on sitting and forward versions<br />

of pigeon pose.<br />

sitting pigeon pose<br />

1. Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out straight in<br />

front of you.<br />

2. Bend your right leg, putting your right ankle on top of<br />

the left knee.<br />

3. Lean forward and allow your upper body to reach<br />

toward your thigh.<br />

4. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. This stretches the glutes and<br />

lower back.<br />

5. Repeat on the other side.<br />

FoRwaRd pigeon pose<br />

1. Kneel on the floor on all fours.<br />

2. Pick up your right leg and move it forward on the<br />

ground in front of your body. Your lower leg should be<br />

on the ground, horizontal to the body. Your right foot<br />

should be in front of your right knee while your right<br />

knee stays to the right.<br />

3. Stretch the left leg out all the way behind you on the<br />

floor, with the top of the foot on the ground and toes<br />

pointing back.<br />

4. Shift your body weight gradually from your arms to<br />

your legs so that your legs are supporting your weight.<br />

Sit up straight with your hands on either side of your<br />

legs.<br />

5. Take a deep breath. While exhaling, lean your upper<br />

body forward over your front leg. Support your weight<br />

with your arms as much as possible.<br />

6. Repeat on the other side.<br />

Knee to opposite shouldeR<br />

This simple stretch helps relieve sciatica pain by loosening<br />

your gluteal and piriformis muscles, which can become<br />

inflamed and press against the sciatic nerve.<br />

1. Lie on your back with your legs extended and your feet<br />

flexed upward.<br />

2. Bend your right leg and clasp your hands around the<br />

knee.<br />

3. Gently pull your right leg across your body toward your<br />

left shoulder. Hold it there for 30 seconds. Remember to<br />

pull your knee only as far as it will comfortably go. You<br />

should feel a relieving stretch in your muscle, not pain.<br />

4. Push your knee so your leg returns to its starting<br />

position.<br />

5. Repeat for a total of three reps, and then switch legs.<br />

sitting spinal stRetch<br />

Sciatica pain is triggered when vertebrae in the spine<br />

compress. This stretch helps create space in the spine to<br />

relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve.<br />

1. Sit on the ground with your legs extended straight out<br />

with your feet flexed upward.<br />

2. Bend your right knee and place your foot flat on the<br />

floor on the outside of your opposite knee.<br />

3. Place your left elbow on the outside of your right knee<br />

to help you gently turn your body toward the right.<br />

4. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat three times, then switch<br />

sides.<br />

standing hamstRing stRetch<br />

This stretch can help ease pain and tightness in the<br />

hamstring caused by sciatica.<br />

1. Place your right foot on an elevated surface at or below<br />

your hip level. This could be a chair, ottoman, or step<br />

on a staircase. Flex your foot so your toes and leg are<br />

straight. If your knee tends to hyperextend, keep a slight<br />

bend in it.<br />

2. Bend your body forward slightly toward your foot. The<br />

further you go, the deeper the stretch. Do not push so<br />

far that you feel pain.<br />

3. Release the hip of your raised leg downward as opposed<br />

to lifting it up. If you need help easing your hip down,<br />

loop a yoga strap or long exercise band over your right<br />

thigh and under your left foot.<br />

4. Hold for at least 30 seconds, and then repeat on the<br />

other side.<br />

exeRcise with caRe<br />

Be cautious and work with the flexibility of your body. If<br />

you attend a class or watch YouTube videos, those people<br />

have been practicing for a while. Don’t compare yourself<br />

or push yourself. Flow with your body and if you have<br />

kind of pain, you should stop. You can try again at another<br />

time.<br />

Love the life<br />

you choose<br />

When you move into a Summerset retirement village, you’re not<br />

just moving house – you’re joining a vibrant, safe and welcoming<br />

community where you’ll feel completely at home.<br />

At Summerset, we put you at the heart of everything<br />

we do, so you can enjoy the freedom of living the life<br />

you choose.<br />

The perfect home is waiting for you. From villas and townhouses, to<br />

apartments – you’ll find a place to make your own. Our homes are<br />

accessible, beautifully-appointed, and there are no worries about<br />

maintenance or upkeep as we take care of it all for you. Pets are also<br />

welcome, and there’s the added assurance of going away on holiday<br />

knowing your home will be safe and secure. We’ll also make sure you’re<br />

aware of all costs, giving you the certainty that there won’t be any<br />

unexpected surprises.<br />

When it comes to activities and events, there’s always something<br />

happening to keep our Summerset community involved, active and<br />

entertained, and you can choose to do as much or as little as you like.<br />

If you need some extra care or support, our continuum of care means<br />

we’ll be there for you as your needs change, giving you the peace of<br />

mind to continue living life to its fullest.<br />

Over 5,000 residents are already enjoying the Summerset life across<br />

26 villages throughout New Zealand. If you’re interested in Summerset<br />

for yourself or a family member, come and visit one of our three<br />

Christchurch villages to find out more about the Summerset life.<br />
