WHEN CLIVE Chandler

arrived for his first day

at Burnside High School,

othing more than two lonely

H-shaped buildings stood on a

large block of farmland.

As the school was started in

a staggered approach with initially

only third-formers, there

were just over 200 students

and Mr Chandler, now 74 and

living in Cashmere, “did not

know what to expect.”

Sixty years on, the school has

skyrocketed to a role of more

than 2000 earning it the title

of the largest school in New

Zealand outside of Auckland.

Next month a reunion will

be held to celebrate 60 years

since the school opened, with

Mr Chandler playing a key role

in organising the event.

Attendees invited to celebrate

the milestone will be first-day

students who were at the

school when it opened on

February 2.

Mixed views

on plan

to lower

Riccarton Rd

speed limit

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLANS TO lower the speed limit

on Riccarton Rd has sparked

mixed feedback.

The city council wants to introduce

a 30km/h limit between

Matipo St and Straven Rd.

As part of a package deal, it

is also proposing to introduce a

40km/h speed limit on the side

streets between Riccarton Rd and

Riccarton Bush – including Rata

St, Rimu St, Titoki and Kauri St.

The Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock

Residents Association is

calling for as much feedback as

possible from Riccarton residents

so it can make a submission on

its behalf. It has complied a 3min

survey to get an indication from

residents on what their views are

on the proposal.

City council operations manager

Steffan Thomas said the

proposal is a response to concerns

raised by residents about drivers

who short-cut at speed through

these streets.

Association chairman Tony

Simons said early indications

from residents have been people

like the idea of reducing the speed

limit on Riccarton Rd – but the

side streets should be reduced the

same amount. •Turn to page 6

70 years of friendship – and counting

• By Sophie Cornish

AS THE saying goes, it takes

a long time to grow an old

friend.

And for this group of ladies,

it’s been a long time – close to 70

years in fact.

As 14-year-olds, the group

of women met when they were

placed in the same class at

Avonside Girls’ High School in

1950 and have reunited every

year since.

For three, Rosemary Harper,

Valerie Percy and Eleanor

Gillespie, all now in their 80s,

their friendship dates back to

when they were five-years-old,

after meeting at Opawa School

in 1941.

“We had some breaks in

meeting to be young wives and

mothers. We are all either 83 or

84 now, but were only 14 when

these special friendships were

made. We meet each two to

three months and stay in touch.

We are still the same women,”

Mrs Gillespie said.

Mostly the group meet at each

others homes for afternoon tea

and each bring a plate of food to

share.

This way they can laugh and

make as much noise as they like,

Mrs Gillespie said.

Three of the group have

passed away, including most

recently, Fay Rabone-Powell, in

December.

“It was a month to the day

that we met (this month). She

badly wanted to come too, she

knew all about it. But she had

been in and out of hospital,

sick. We use to go to Fay’s quite

a bit, she had a big home,” Mrs

Gillespie said.

The group were in a small class

of 21 at Avonside, where most

had 30 pupils, something they

believe may have contributed to

their close friendships.

“I don’t know what the secret

is; it is very special, especially for

the women who are widowed.

I just want to tell any young

people, it’s difficult when

you have young children but

suddenly it becomes very

special. Your school friends,

you have to make a point of

staying in touch,” Mrs Gillespie

said.

Between them, they have 26

children, 54 grandchildren and

10 great-grandchildren, with

another on the way.

FRIENDSHIP: A group of friends who met

at Avonside Girls’ High School in 1950

have come together to meet every year

since. Their class was form 3CB (above).

“We have been quite

productive haven’t we,” Mrs

Gillespie said.

The women were placed

in a commercial course after

school and most ended up as

secretaries, in banks, law firms

or offices, some even ended

up working for the same

companies.

Burnside HS celebrates 60 years

• From page 1

Mr Chandler said while there

is planned to be between 35-40

students to mark the milestone,

there are still many students he is

trying to track down.

He is asking for any former

student at the school on its opening

day to contact him.

The two-day event will include

poetry, a speech from former

principal John Godfrey on the

school’s past successes, lunch and

dinner and tours of the school.

Mr Chandler is hoping his former

fellow classmates will be able

to catch up, renew their friendships

and stay in touch, especially

if they live in the city.

The school was first formed

on farmland which was named

Burnside by early pioneer William

Boag, who came to New

Zealand in 1853.

The cabbage trees located on

the school’s grounds – which are

part of the school’s logo – were

used by Maori and European settlers

to guide themselves across

the swamps of Christchurch to

the Canterbury Plains.

Mr Chandler described the

school as having “all changed”

since he began. There was no

school hall, no gymnasium and

no swimming pool.

The school has also established

a reputation for having a strong

performance music programme

HISTORIC: Burnside High School the day it opened on

February 2, 1960. ​

over the last 60 years with talented

alumni including singers Hayley

Westenra and Julia Deans.

But Mr Chandler said right

from the beginning, Burnside

had a big emphasis on music,

which was encouraged by the

school’s first principal Jim Cross.

He described Mr Cross, who

was formerly the deputy principal

at Riccarton High School, as

setting a “very high standard.”

“He was strict on discipline,

high standards, courtesy and

kindness to everybody. He was

supported by all the staff. I have

met a few of them since and they

all recollect their time at Burnside

as one of the happy times in their

e-bikes & scooters

teaching,” Mr Chandler said.

He said the school has always

been big on language and it

received requests from other

schools for students to come

and learn German – which was

an uncommon language to be

taught at the time.

Other notable people to have

studied at Burnside are former

Prime Minister John Key, former

Air New Zealand chief executive

Rob Fyfe and author Eleanor

Catton.

Since leaving Burnside, Mr

Chandler has led an exciting

career travelling the world and

working as a baker.

When he left school he completed

a baking apprenticeship

and worked in the family business

Chandler’s Bakery for three

years before moving to Canada to

work in 1967.

He then travelled throughout

the United States and worked in

Fort Lauderdale in late 1969 where

“racism was rife” and “was one hell

of an eye-opener.”

Mr Chandler continued to travel

on to the United Kingdom before

returning to New Zealand in 1970

where he worked and eventually

ran Chandler’s Bakery until it was

sold in the early 2000s.

The business, formerly located

at the now Christchurch Bus

Exchange, was demolished as a

result of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Mr Chandler now leads a busy

life working as a supervisory

baker and trainer of new staff at

Fendalton New World – and has

no plans to retire.

He said Burnside taught him

good public speaking skills, the

ability to think for himself and to

look at the big picture.

He said what he appreciated

most was the fellowship and

friendship at the school.

“Don’t be blinkered on your outlook

of life,” Mr Chandler said.

Proposal for faster

speed on side streets

surprises residents

•From page 1

“You shouldn’t be allowed

to go faster on the side streets

. . . other suggestions were Riccarton

Rd and the side streets

should be 40km/h.”

Dumplings

on Riccarton

owner Peter

Wah, who will

be making a

submission on

the proposal,

Peter Wah

questioned

why the speed

limit needed to be lowered when

there will be no where for vehicles

to stop on the street.

“It is only going to cause more

congestion.”

He has previously raised concerns

businesses on Riccarton

Rd will lose all of its car parking

following the completion of the

road works.

A city council spokeswoman

F9KP8lT1Q/viewform

said when work is completed

there will be time-restricted

parking provided to the east

of Rotherham St and south of

Riccarton Rd.

RBK residents’ association

member Lyndon Telfer said he

did not know why there was

a proposal to lower the speed

limit when the traffic on Riccarton

Rd “hardly moves.”

He said what was surprising

was the 40km/h proposal for

the side streets – which would

allow the traffic to go faster

than on Riccarton Rd if implemented.

City council data showed

as of June, on average 1472 vehicles

were using Rimu St north

and 1595 were using Rimu St

south.

Mr Telfer said he suspects

the number of vehicles shortcutting

side streets will increase

significantly if the proposal

goes ahead.

As of June, 399 vehicles on

average were using Rata St west

and 804 vehicles were using

Rata St east.

Mr Telfer said normally about

1100 vehicles travels from Kauri

St onto Rata St but there was

a decrease when the Kauri St

entrance was blocked off temporarily.

He said the association is

planning to ask the city council

to permanently block off the

Kauri St entrance into Rata

St to decrease short-cutting

vehicles.

SKILLS: The Canterbury age-group beach volleyball team

celebrate from the national provincial champs last week.

Beach volleyballers

in the medals

• By Jacob Page

CANTERBURY age-group

beach volleyballers found plenty

of success at the provincial

championships at Mt Maunganui

last week.

Canterbury finished first and

second in the under-17 girls category

with St Andrews College’s

Tineke Hinton and Burnside

High School’s Taylah Holden

claiming gold over Burnside’s

Rosa Vesty and St Margaret’s’

Ella Ballantyne 21-14,-22-20.

Ironically, both Taylah and

Rosa have won South Island secondary

school titles together and

will be a strong chance of winning

a national title together at

the same location this weekend.

Burnside High School coach

Sam Ryburn said the success was

down to a renewed commitment

to the beach volleyball game in

Canterbury.

“It’s been a long time since

we’ve had this kind of success,”

he said. “I don’t think five years

ago we would have sent a team.

Lincoln High School’s Nia

Surman and St Margaret’s’ Emily

O’Connor finished fifth.

The St Andrew’s duo of Marijke

Hinton and Kate Allan combined

to earn a bronze medal in

the under-19 category.

The duo beat fellow Canterbury

combination Georgia Bonne

of St Andrew’s College and

Rosa Davidson of St Margaret’s

College 21-14, 21-18.

Janie Porter

Art, landscape, seascape and birds

have always filled Janie’s life. She

painted and drew from when she was

old enough to hold a pencil or brush.

As a child she would watch the trees

and sky through the schoolroom

window when she should have been

listening to the teacher. The rolling

hills and countryside coloured her

childhood in England, where she often

spent time rescuing and nurturing

birds that had fallen out of nests or

had broken wings. Aged eight she saw

Cornwall for the first time – the cliffs,

the sea, the wheeling gulls took her

breath away.

Janie attended art school extramurally

while still at high school.

In her early twenties, travelling the

hippie trail from London to Kathmandu

she met and fell in love with a Kiwi.

When she came with him to his

home she fell in love again, this time

with the taonga of New Zealand, the

ocean, the native birds, the mountains

and the wilderness.

About twenty years ago her friend

Galina Kim who was an art mentor to

Janie encouraged her to start using a

palette knife. She never looked back.

Janie studied at the University of Fine

Arts in Vietnam in 2005 and there she

fused her use of palette knife and love

of NZ landscape with layers and layers

of pigment and lacquer.

Now she lives on Banks Peninsula/

Horomaka and spends her days

absorbing and painting the wonder

and beauty of her surroundings.

Observing and reflecting. Sea and birds and land. Walking,

exploring, wondering at its beauty.

May were able to turn heads at

the North Island age-group golf

championships.

Zach, 17, finished runner-up

in the under-19 field at the

Hamilton Golf Club, while

Seb, 14, managed third in the

under-16 category. The duo live

in Fendalton.

Zach said the result was reward

for the work he had done on his

game after a challenging 2019.

He was the co-leader heading

into the final round but could

not hold-off Miramar’s Sam

Masters in the final round.

Zach finished at +3, two shots

behind Sam.

“I was pleased with the week I

had, last year was tough for me,

the first six months was a struggle

with the way I was playing

and I worked really hard at it so

it’s nice to see the results coming

from that,” he said.

“My driving off the tee was

my issue, it became a mental

thing for me, I could go out

onto the driving range and hit

quality drives time-after-time

but then I’d play a round and it

would all fall apart – I’d get the

yips really.

“The positive thing is that my

short game has got better because

I’ve become used to playing

in positions on the course

that are tricky,” he said.

Seb was the outright leader

heading into the final round of

the under-16 tournament before

a 77 saw him finish at +7, eight

shots behind the winner, Ryan

Rooney from Fielding.

“I thought it was a pretty good

week against some tough golfers,”

he said.

“I haven’t played much in the

North Island because I have had

a wrist injury but it was good to

get the opportunity and backing

my ability.”

TALENTED

DUO:

Brothers

Zach (left),

and Seb May

both had

top-three

finishes at

the North

Island agegroup

golf

champs in

Hamilton.

Neither of their parents

played golf but they Zach was

taken to Russley’s junior golf

clinics at the age of five and Seb

followed.

Their sister, Maddie, 15, also

plays golf and has represented

Canterbury.

Zach said his next focus

would be the Canterbury

strokeplay this weekend at

Harewood Golf Club then the

South Island strokeplay in Dunedin

in a fortnight.

Seb will switch his focus to

cricket for the short-term.

TAKING UP judo five years ago

has changed the course of life for

former Christchurch Boys’ High

School student Lorcan Fivet.

He has the Olympics to work

towards, he has changed his

studies to a sports-related qualification

and he has gained more

personal confidence than he

thought was possible.

Fivet, a Strowan

resident, trains twice a

day, and balances his

passion for judo with his

bachelor of sport coaching

majoring in sports

science studies at the

Canterbury University

and has a job at UC’s

Recreation Centre.

The training has paid

off, with national titles

in the junior men’s category in

2017 and 2018, a world ranking

of 13 in June last year, and a first

senior men national title in 2019.

The 20-year-old travelled to

Brazil recently for an intensive

training opportunity.

The training will take place for

three months before he competes

in Argentina, Peru and Chile, as

part of a dream to compete at the

2022 Commonwealth Games.

Fivet has his sights set on the

2024 Olympics and that means

SPORT

Judo provides

new life direction

Lorcan Fivet

full-time training for the next

four years.

“I want to take it as far as possible,”

he said.

He has been passionate about

judo since he first tried it five

years ago.

“I tried it and loved it. After

the first year I was competing

and training 12 times

a week. I went through

the grades to black belt.”

He teaches the three

to 10 year-old class at

his club, Premier Equipe

Judo, and “would definitely

recommend judo,

especially for young

kids.”

Along with

fitness, co-ordination,

discipline and coaching

skills, judo has given

Fivet another important

life lesson.

“I used to be extremely

introverted; I hated any kind

of social interaction. My first

two or three years of judo I

would stay at the back, in the

shadows, and avoid attention.

Ever since I started judo, my

parents and coach said the same

thing, that it takes you out of

your shell and gives you so much

confidence.”

New shoe shop offers even more

‘fashionable, functional footwear’

Newly opened, the Shoe Room in Riccarton Road,

just across from the Bush Inn Centre, offers an

extensive range of specialised footwear for people

that have foot problems, difficulty finding shoes or are

simply looking for stylish, comfortable shoes.

This bright, modern and attractively laid out store is

owned by podiatrist Charlotte Russell, who also owns

and operates the podiatry clinic Feet First in Upper

Riccarton. The Shoe Room was previously part of the

clinic, but increasing demand for “fashionable, functional

footwear” meant they needed to expand, Charlotte says.

As a stand-alone store with much more space, the

Shoe Room is able to offer an extended range of brands

and styles to accommodate feet requiring specific

features, such as wider, deeper or more narrow fitting

and for those who are on their feet all day.

The Shoe Room Shop assistant Wendy, left,

business owner Charlotte Russell, centre,

and shop manager Maxine.

At present, the majority are women’s shoes, but the

men’s range will be expanded with the arrival of the

winter season collection, Charlotte says.

Brands on display include Mephisto from France,

which is exclusive to the Shoe Room in New Zealand,

Australian brands Frankie 4, Revere and Propet, and

Taos from the United States.

The shop has been thoughtfully designed with seating

and large mirrors to the side of the display areas, so

customers have plenty of space to try shoes on and

walk around in them. Shop manager Maxine and shop

assistant Wendy both have extensive experience in

footwear, so can assist and advise customers on the

best fit and style to suit their needs.

“This is a point of difference for the Shoe Room –

having people who know about shoe fitting to help our

customers,” Charlotte says. “We will also be having a

appointment, though we welcome walk-ins.”

For customer convenience there is an off-street

parking area behind the shop, with access from Auburn

Avenue. Dedicated Shoe Room parking spaces are

located right by the back door.

The Shoe Room is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,

Thursday 9.30am-7pm, Saturday 10am-4pm.

Neck assessment vital after

concussion injury

What role does the neck play in

concussion injury?

Research shows that the average

concussion injury involves 95g of force to

the head. It can take as little as 4g of force

to cause an injury to the upper cervical

spine.

This means it is virtually impossible

to have a concussion injury without

also injuring the structures at the top

of the neck. The latest medical research

acknowledges that the neck plays a

significant role in post-concussion

symptoms.

The symptoms of an

uncomplicated mild concussion

will usually resolve within the first

two weeks post-injury. However,

some people will experience

symptoms for a lot longer. It is

vital to get the neck assessed as

it can be the cause of lingering

symptoms.

The neck can be mistakenly

thought of as one structure;

however, the upper cervical spine

is completely different from the rest of

the spine, both in structure and function.

This area is particularly vulnerable

during a concussion injury and has a

major influence on brain function, as the

brainstem lies within the upper cervical

spine.

Children, teenagers and females are

more susceptible to concussion injuries

due to the muscles of the neck being

smaller and weaker in these groups. This

means that the acceleration of the head is

greater during impact, increasing the risk

of damage to the brain and structures in

the neck.

If you have sustained a concussion

injury and have ongoing symptoms,

you need to get your neck checked by a

practitioner with specialised knowledge

and post-graduate training in the upper

cervical spine. This is a delicate area and

needs to be carefully examined to ensure

that injury and dysfunction are diagnosed

correctly.

The team at The Headache Clinic have

undergone extensive training in the

upper cervical spine and work exclusively

in this area. Their practitioners have

extensive knowledge and experience in

treating post-concussion syndrome. The

Headache Clinic use a targeted approach

to assess and treat the upper cervical and

ensure strength and stability in the neck is

restored to decrease the risk of re-injury.

Concussion is a complicated injury that

needs to be taken seriously. The effects

can be lifelong if they are not managed

correctly by professionals experienced in

treating concussion injuries.

The Christchurch clinic is located

on the corner of Papanui and Blighs

Roads. For more information visit

Aikido beginners

Interested in aikido? “Then follow

the Nike approach and “just do it””

is the advice instructor Andrew

Williamson repeats to beginners.

“Every new student is naturally

apprehensive about beginning a

Japanese martial art aikido, we have

all ‘been there‘.”

At Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury

we take care to ease beginners into

training through basics classes.

With that first step onto the mat, we

focus on beginners understanding

the fundamentals of aikido so that

they can take the next step and

begin a life long study of the art.

“We want students to develop

technically and physically as quickly

as possible”, notes Williamson. “We

can then introduce them to more

advanced training and international

instructors and build the total

knowledge base of our group.”

Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury

has dojos in Burnside and Linwood

and provides daily classes for adults

and children. Beginners are very

welcome.

christchurch School of Music

Christchurch School of Music (CSM)

has offered high quality music tuition and

ensembles to Cantabrians for 65 years,

with many of its alumni now performing

in orchestras, bands and choirs across New

Zealand and the world.

“From an engaging preschool

programme to high quality adult tuition

and everything in between, CSM caters

to everyone aged from 2 to 92, whatever

their level of playing or singing” says Music

Director Celia Stewart.

It offers tuition in all orchestral

instruments, recorder, ukulele, guitar,

piano and voice, and musicianship classes.

A wide range of ensembles includes

orchestras at every level; two choirs; wind,

guitar and recorder ensembles; chamber

music; jazz combo; concert band; big band;

and rock bands.

CSM’s outreach programme takes tutors

into schools to offer strings, band, ukulele,

recorder and percussion tuition.

“The school is a place where all the

family can learn and enjoy being part of

an ensemble at their level,” says Celia “It

is always wonderful to see a mother and

daughter playing in the same orchestra.

There is a strong sense of community on

a Saturday with music coming from every

space.”

Saturday and after school tuition will

take place starting in 2020 at Linwood

College on the old Avonside Girls’ High

site on Avonside Drive.

CSM offers a range of performing

opportunities from solo recitals, regular

soirees to its annual Showcase.

“CSM has an important role to play,

regardless of whether students go on to

become professional musicians, or listeners

with a well-grounded knowledge and love

of music,” says Celia, who started at the

then Christchurch School of Instrumental

Music as a six year old and has worked in a

wide range of roles within the School.

The school has always championed the

recorder, a beautiful instrument in its own

right as well as a great starting instrument

so it is offering a very special deal. For

just $52 a year, students receive a quality

instrument, a tutor book and group tuition

with excellent tutors for the full year.

Gain a second chance at NCEA

NCEA credits after leaving secondary

school, thanks to Vision College. The

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are

spreading awareness to the young people

in the community, making sure they know

that achieving NCEA levels outside of

school is within their reach.

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’

programme offers students without NCEA

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of

skills designed to make them employable.

Students earn their NCEA credits in

a more practical way, through games,

hands-on activities, and by applying their

learning to real life situations. Students

also get to experience tasters of different

career and study paths to help them

decide where they would like to head after

completing ‘Ultimate’.

School leavers can also enrol in

Security, Early Childcare or Business

Administration courses to earn not only

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also a

career qualification too in just six months.

These courses are all free for anyone aged

between 16 and 19. Upon completion

students can even pathway onto higher

study with Vision College in Web and

Software Development, Early Childhood

Education, and Counselling.

Vision College are enrolling now for

February! For more information on their

courses, call 0800 834 834, txt “VISION”

to 027 557 8839, or visit their website

www.vision.ac.nz.

Each year up to 10,000 young people

in New Zealand leave school with little

or no formal qualifications. Many teens

disengage with school as the teaching

environment simply does not suit their

style of learning. Research shows that

without a qualification they are more likely

to have difficulties entering the workforce,

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and

a driver’s licence.

Many early school leavers unfortunately

believe that secondary school is the only

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.

This misconception is particularly

concerning for those young people

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling

environment, but still want to find

employment or complete certain industry

training courses for which an NCEA

qualification is a pre-requisite.

Every year dozens of young people

are getting a second chance at earning

Now that exams are over,

kickstart your career in 2020!

Summerset at Wigram serviced apartment resident, Alma with daughter Maree

Serviced apartments,

Alma to stay active and thrive

“ Since Mum’s been here,

she’s just blossomed”

From growing up in a big family in Christchurch to being happily married for 63 years, Alma’s had

plenty of company throughout her whole life.

So, when the option to move to a Summerset serviced apartment came up, Alma and daughter

Maree were naturally a little nervous it might be a bit on the quiet side for her. But, since the move,

they’ve discovered it’s been anything but quiet.

“I don’t think you’d ever need to feel lonely here. It’s just like a big family and there’s always

something going on,” remarks Alma.

When she first arrived at her serviced apartment, Alma had her husband by her side. Sadly, he

passed away shortly after due to on-going health issues. “I thought it might take her a little while to

deal with the loss of dad and… the new surroundings, but it was quite amazing really how quickly

she settled, and I think that was down to the staff,” recalls daughter Maree.

Alma with Maree as a toddler

While the move was a big decision, the whole family feel that Alma has “blossomed” since and

has become more herself again.

“ She’s involved herself in things that she hadn’t done for years, Choir. Exercising.

She’s just taken it with both hands, made friends and it’s all been just amazing.”

Maree and Alma both admit that the stigma of retirement living put them off for longer than it

needed to. “I think mum was just so delighted when she came here and realised how welcoming

and how well-run [the place was] and what care was here for her. I think it was an eye-opener, really.”

Having Alma living at home with her would have been a dream for Maree, but with the reality of

working all day, she worried her mum would be very bored. But Alma hasn’t had time for boredom

at all since moving to Summerset. “There’s so much to keep you occupied. Music. Happy Hour, little

outings. It’s a lovely place to be.”

Alma also fills her time with a cheeky bit of cleaning, even though she doesn’t need to lift a finger.

“I don’t think she leaves a lot for the staff to clean, but that’s mum,” laughs Maree.

“It’s a relief for us to know that she’s taken care of. Dad would be so pleased to see she’s in a

place like this. It’s just been a godsend.”
