WHEN CLIVE Chandler<br />

arrived for his first day<br />

at Burnside High School,<br />

othing more than two lonely<br />

H-shaped buildings stood on a<br />

large block of farmland.<br />

As the school was started in<br />

a staggered approach with initially<br />

only third-formers, there<br />

were just over 200 students<br />

and Mr Chandler, now 74 and<br />

living in Cashmere, “did not<br />

know what to expect.”<br />

Sixty years on, the school has<br />

skyrocketed to a role of more<br />

than 2000 earning it the title<br />

of the largest school in New<br />

Zealand outside of Auckland.<br />

Next month a reunion will<br />

be held to celebrate 60 years<br />

since the school opened, with<br />

Mr Chandler playing a key role<br />

in organising the event.<br />

Attendees invited to celebrate<br />

the milestone will be first-day<br />

students who were at the<br />

school when it opened on<br />

February 2.<br />

Mixed views<br />

on plan<br />

to lower<br />

Riccarton Rd<br />

speed limit<br />

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding<br />

PLANS TO lower the speed limit<br />

on Riccarton Rd has sparked<br />

mixed feedback.<br />

The city council wants to introduce<br />

a 30km/h limit between<br />

Matipo St and Straven Rd.<br />

As part of a package deal, it<br />

is also proposing to introduce a<br />

40km/h speed limit on the side<br />

streets between Riccarton Rd and<br />

Riccarton Bush – including Rata<br />

St, Rimu St, Titoki and Kauri St.<br />

The Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock<br />

Residents Association is<br />

calling for as much feedback as<br />

possible from Riccarton residents<br />

so it can make a submission on<br />

its behalf. It has complied a 3min<br />

survey to get an indication from<br />

residents on what their views are<br />

on the proposal.<br />

City council operations manager<br />

Steffan Thomas said the<br />

proposal is a response to concerns<br />

raised by residents about drivers<br />

who short-cut at speed through<br />

these streets.<br />

Association chairman Tony<br />

Simons said early indications<br />

from residents have been people<br />

like the idea of reducing the speed<br />

limit on Riccarton Rd – but the<br />

side streets should be reduced the<br />

same amount. •Turn to page 6<br />

70 years of friendship – and counting<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

AS THE saying goes, it takes<br />

a long time to grow an old<br />

friend.<br />

And for this group of ladies,<br />

it’s been a long time – close to 70<br />

years in fact.<br />

As 14-year-olds, the group<br />

of women met when they were<br />

placed in the same class at<br />

Avonside Girls’ High School in<br />

1950 and have reunited every<br />

year since.<br />

For three, Rosemary Harper,<br />

Valerie Percy and Eleanor<br />

Gillespie, all now in their 80s,<br />

their friendship dates back to<br />

when they were five-years-old,<br />

after meeting at Opawa School<br />

in 1941.<br />

“We had some breaks in<br />

meeting to be young wives and<br />

mothers. We are all either 83 or<br />

84 now, but were only 14 when<br />

these special friendships were<br />

made. We meet each two to<br />

three months and stay in touch.<br />

We are still the same women,”<br />

Mrs Gillespie said.<br />

Mostly the group meet at each<br />

others homes for afternoon tea<br />

and each bring a plate of food to<br />

share.<br />

This way they can laugh and<br />

make as much noise as they like,<br />

Mrs Gillespie said.<br />

Three of the group have<br />

passed away, including most<br />

recently, Fay Rabone-Powell, in<br />

December.<br />

“It was a month to the day<br />

that we met (this month). She<br />

badly wanted to come too, she<br />

knew all about it. But she had<br />

been in and out of hospital,<br />

sick. We use to go to Fay’s quite<br />

a bit, she had a big home,” Mrs<br />

Gillespie said.<br />

The group were in a small class<br />

of 21 at Avonside, where most<br />

had 30 pupils, something they<br />

believe may have contributed to<br />

their close friendships.<br />

“I don’t know what the secret<br />

is; it is very special, especially for<br />

the women who are widowed.<br />

I just want to tell any young<br />

people, it’s difficult when<br />

you have young children but<br />

suddenly it becomes very<br />

special. Your school friends,<br />

you have to make a point of<br />

staying in touch,” Mrs Gillespie<br />

said.<br />

Between them, they have 26<br />

children, 54 grandchildren and<br />

10 great-grandchildren, with<br />

another on the way.<br />

FRIENDSHIP: A group of friends who met<br />

at Avonside Girls’ High School in 1950<br />

have come together to meet every year<br />

since. Their class was form 3CB (above).<br />

“We have been quite<br />

productive haven’t we,” Mrs<br />

Gillespie said.<br />

The women were placed<br />

in a commercial course after<br />

school and most ended up as<br />

secretaries, in banks, law firms<br />

or offices, some even ended<br />

up working for the same<br />

companies.<br />

Burnside HS celebrates 60 years<br />

• From page 1<br />

Mr Chandler said while there<br />

is planned to be between 35-40<br />

students to mark the milestone,<br />

there are still many students he is<br />

trying to track down.<br />

He is asking for any former<br />

student at the school on its opening<br />

day to contact him.<br />

The two-day event will include<br />

poetry, a speech from former<br />

principal John Godfrey on the<br />

school’s past successes, lunch and<br />

dinner and tours of the school.<br />

Mr Chandler is hoping his former<br />

fellow classmates will be able<br />

to catch up, renew their friendships<br />

and stay in touch, especially<br />

if they live in the city.<br />

The school was first formed<br />

on farmland which was named<br />

Burnside by early pioneer William<br />

Boag, who came to New<br />

Zealand in 1853.<br />

The cabbage trees located on<br />

the school’s grounds – which are<br />

part of the school’s logo – were<br />

used by Maori and European settlers<br />

to guide themselves across<br />

the swamps of Christchurch to<br />

the Canterbury Plains.<br />

Mr Chandler described the<br />

school as having “all changed”<br />

since he began. There was no<br />

school hall, no gymnasium and<br />

no swimming pool.<br />

The school has also established<br />

a reputation for having a strong<br />

performance music programme<br />

HISTORIC: Burnside High School the day it opened on<br />

February 2, 1960. ​<br />

over the last 60 years with talented<br />

alumni including singers Hayley<br />

Westenra and Julia Deans.<br />

But Mr Chandler said right<br />

from the beginning, Burnside<br />

had a big emphasis on music,<br />

which was encouraged by the<br />

school’s first principal Jim Cross.<br />

He described Mr Cross, who<br />

was formerly the deputy principal<br />

at Riccarton High School, as<br />

setting a “very high standard.”<br />

“He was strict on discipline,<br />

high standards, courtesy and<br />

kindness to everybody. He was<br />

supported by all the staff. I have<br />

met a few of them since and they<br />

all recollect their time at Burnside<br />

as one of the happy times in their<br />

e-bikes & scooters<br />

12 MONTHS INTEREST FREE * *conditions apply<br />

teaching,” Mr Chandler said.<br />

He said the school has always<br />

been big on language and it<br />

received requests from other<br />

schools for students to come<br />

and learn German – which was<br />

an uncommon language to be<br />

taught at the time.<br />

Other notable people to have<br />

studied at Burnside are former<br />

Prime Minister John Key, former<br />

Air New Zealand chief executive<br />

Rob Fyfe and author Eleanor<br />

Catton.<br />

Since leaving Burnside, Mr<br />

Chandler has led an exciting<br />

career travelling the world and<br />

working as a baker.<br />

When he left school he completed<br />

a baking apprenticeship<br />

and worked in the family business<br />

Chandler’s Bakery for three<br />

years before moving to Canada to<br />

work in 1967.<br />

He then travelled throughout<br />

the United States and worked in<br />

Fort Lauderdale in late 1969 where<br />

“racism was rife” and “was one hell<br />

of an eye-opener.”<br />

Mr Chandler continued to travel<br />

on to the United Kingdom before<br />

returning to New Zealand in 1970<br />

where he worked and eventually<br />

ran Chandler’s Bakery until it was<br />

sold in the early 2000s.<br />

The business, formerly located<br />

at the now Christchurch Bus<br />

Exchange, was demolished as a<br />

result of the February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake.<br />

Mr Chandler now leads a busy<br />

life working as a supervisory<br />

baker and trainer of new staff at<br />

Fendalton New World – and has<br />

no plans to retire.<br />

He said Burnside taught him<br />

good public speaking skills, the<br />

ability to think for himself and to<br />

look at the big picture.<br />

He said what he appreciated<br />

most was the fellowship and<br />

friendship at the school.<br />

“Don’t be blinkered on your outlook<br />

of life,” Mr Chandler said.<br />

there will be no where for vehicles<br />

to stop on the street.<br />

“It is only going to cause more<br />

congestion.”<br />

He has previously raised concerns<br />

businesses on Riccarton<br />

said when work is completed<br />

there will be time-restricted<br />

parking provided to the east<br />

of Rotherham St and south of<br />

Riccarton Rd.<br />

RBK residents’ association<br />

member Lyndon Telfer said he<br />

did not know why there was<br />

a proposal to lower the speed<br />

limit when the traffic on Riccarton<br />

Rd “hardly moves.”<br />

He said what was surprising<br />

was the 40km/h proposal for<br />

the side streets – which would<br />

allow the traffic to go faster<br />

than on Riccarton Rd if implemented.<br />

City council data showed<br />

as of June, on average 1472 vehicles<br />

were using Rimu St north<br />

and 1595 were using Rimu St<br />

south.<br />

Mr Telfer said he suspects<br />

the number of vehicles shortcutting<br />

side streets will increase<br />

significantly if the proposal<br />

goes ahead.<br />

As of June, 399 vehicles on<br />

average were using Rata St west<br />

and 804 vehicles were using<br />

Rata St east.<br />

Mr Telfer said normally about<br />

1100 vehicles travels from Kauri<br />

St onto Rata St but there was<br />

a decrease when the Kauri St<br />

entrance was blocked off temporarily.<br />

He said the association is<br />

planning to ask the city council<br />

to permanently block off the<br />

Kauri St entrance into Rata<br />

St to decrease short-cutting<br />

vehicles.<br />

SKILLS: The Canterbury age-group beach volleyball team<br />

celebrate from the national provincial champs last week.<br />

Beach volleyballers<br />

in the medals<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

CANTERBURY age-group<br />

beach volleyballers found plenty<br />

of success at the provincial<br />

championships at Mt Maunganui<br />

last week.<br />

Canterbury finished first and<br />

second in the under-17 girls category<br />

with St Andrews College’s<br />

Tineke Hinton and Burnside<br />

High School’s Taylah Holden<br />

claiming gold over Burnside’s<br />

Rosa Vesty and St Margaret’s’<br />

Ella Ballantyne 21-14,-22-20.<br />

Ironically, both Taylah and<br />

Rosa have won South Island secondary<br />

school titles together and<br />

will be a strong chance of winning<br />

a national title together at<br />

the same location this weekend.<br />

Burnside High School coach<br />

Sam Ryburn said the success was<br />

down to a renewed commitment<br />

to the beach volleyball game in<br />

Canterbury.<br />

“It’s been a long time since<br />

we’ve had this kind of success,”<br />

he said. “I don’t think five years<br />

ago we would have sent a team.<br />

Lincoln High School’s Nia<br />

Surman and St Margaret’s’ Emily<br />

O’Connor finished fifth.<br />

The St Andrew’s duo of Marijke<br />

Hinton and Kate Allan combined<br />

to earn a bronze medal in<br />

the under-19 category.<br />

The duo beat fellow Canterbury<br />

combination Georgia Bonne<br />

of St Andrew’s College and<br />

Rosa Davidson of St Margaret’s<br />

College 21-14, 21-18.<br />

Janie Porter<br />

Art, landscape, seascape and birds<br />

have always filled Janie’s life. She<br />

painted and drew from when she was<br />

old enough to hold a pencil or brush.<br />

As a child she would watch the trees<br />

and sky through the schoolroom<br />

window when she should have been<br />

listening to the teacher. The rolling<br />

hills and countryside coloured her<br />

childhood in England, where she often<br />

spent time rescuing and nurturing<br />

birds that had fallen out of nests or<br />

had broken wings. Aged eight she saw<br />

Cornwall for the first time – the cliffs,<br />

the sea, the wheeling gulls took her<br />

breath away.<br />

Janie attended art school extramurally<br />

while still at high school.<br />

In her early twenties, travelling the<br />

hippie trail from London to Kathmandu<br />

she met and fell in love with a Kiwi.<br />

When she came with him to his<br />

home she fell in love again, this time<br />

with the taonga of New Zealand, the<br />

ocean, the native birds, the mountains<br />

and the wilderness.<br />

About twenty years ago her friend<br />

Galina Kim who was an art mentor to<br />

Janie encouraged her to start using a<br />

palette knife. She never looked back.<br />

Janie studied at the University of Fine<br />

Arts in Vietnam in 2005 and there she<br />

fused her use of palette knife and love<br />

of NZ landscape with layers and layers<br />

of pigment and lacquer.<br />

Now she lives on Banks Peninsula/<br />

Horomaka and spends her days<br />

absorbing and painting the wonder<br />

and beauty of her surroundings.<br />

Observing and reflecting. Sea and birds and land. Walking,<br />

exploring, wondering at its beauty.<br />

May brothers impress<br />

at North Island champs<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

BROTHERS ZACH and Seb<br />

May were able to turn heads at<br />

the North Island age-group golf<br />

championships.<br />

Zach, 17, finished runner-up<br />

in the under-19 field at the<br />

Hamilton Golf Club, while<br />

Seb, 14, managed third in the<br />

under-16 category. The duo live<br />

in Fendalton.<br />

Zach said the result was reward<br />

for the work he had done on his<br />

game after a challenging 2019.<br />

He was the co-leader heading<br />

into the final round but could<br />

not hold-off Miramar’s Sam<br />

Masters in the final round.<br />

Zach finished at +3, two shots<br />

behind Sam.<br />

“I was pleased with the week I<br />

had, last year was tough for me,<br />

the first six months was a struggle<br />

with the way I was playing<br />

and I worked really hard at it so<br />

it’s nice to see the results coming<br />

from that,” he said.<br />

“My driving off the tee was<br />

my issue, it became a mental<br />

thing for me, I could go out<br />

onto the driving range and hit<br />

quality drives time-after-time<br />

but then I’d play a round and it<br />

would all fall apart – I’d get the<br />

yips really.<br />

“The positive thing is that my<br />

short game has got better because<br />

I’ve become used to playing<br />

in positions on the course<br />

that are tricky,” he said.<br />

Seb was the outright leader<br />

heading into the final round of<br />

the under-16 tournament before<br />

a 77 saw him finish at +7, eight<br />

shots behind the winner, Ryan<br />

Rooney from Fielding.<br />

“I thought it was a pretty good<br />

week against some tough golfers,”<br />

he said.<br />

“I haven’t played much in the<br />

North Island because I have had<br />

a wrist injury but it was good to<br />

get the opportunity and backing<br />

my ability.”<br />

TALENTED<br />

DUO:<br />

Brothers<br />

Zach (left),<br />

and Seb May<br />

both had<br />

top-three<br />

finishes at<br />

the North<br />

Island agegroup<br />

golf<br />

champs in<br />

Hamilton.<br />

Neither of their parents<br />

played golf but they Zach was<br />

taken to Russley’s junior golf<br />

clinics at the age of five and Seb<br />

followed.<br />

Their sister, Maddie, 15, also<br />

plays golf and has represented<br />

Canterbury.<br />

Zach said his next focus<br />

would be the Canterbury<br />

strokeplay this weekend at<br />

Harewood Golf Club then the<br />

South Island strokeplay in Dunedin<br />

in a fortnight.<br />

Seb will switch his focus to<br />

cricket for the short-term.<br />

TAKING UP judo five years ago<br />

has changed the course of life for<br />

former Christchurch Boys’ High<br />

School student Lorcan Fivet.<br />

He has the Olympics to work<br />

towards, he has changed his<br />

studies to a sports-related qualification<br />

and he has gained more<br />

personal confidence than he<br />

thought was possible.<br />

Fivet, a Strowan<br />

resident, trains twice a<br />

day, and balances his<br />

passion for judo with his<br />

bachelor of sport coaching<br />

majoring in sports<br />

science studies at the<br />

Canterbury University<br />

and has a job at UC’s<br />

Recreation Centre.<br />

The training has paid<br />

off, with national titles<br />

in the junior men’s category in<br />

2017 and 2018, a world ranking<br />

of 13 in June last year, and a first<br />

senior men national title in 2019.<br />

The 20-year-old travelled to<br />

Brazil recently for an intensive<br />

training opportunity.<br />

The training will take place for<br />

three months before he competes<br />

in Argentina, Peru and Chile, as<br />

part of a dream to compete at the<br />

2022 Commonwealth Games.<br />

Fivet has his sights set on the<br />

2024 Olympics and that means<br />

SPORT<br />

Judo provides<br />

new life direction<br />

Lorcan Fivet<br />

full-time training for the next<br />

four years.<br />

“I want to take it as far as possible,”<br />

he said.<br />

He has been passionate about<br />

judo since he first tried it five<br />

years ago.<br />

“I tried it and loved it. After<br />

the first year I was competing<br />

and training 12 times<br />

a week. I went through<br />

the grades to black belt.”<br />

He teaches the three<br />

to 10 year-old class at<br />

his club, Premier Equipe<br />

Judo, and “would definitely<br />

recommend judo,<br />

especially for young<br />

kids.”<br />

Along with<br />

fitness, co-ordination,<br />

discipline and coaching<br />

skills, judo has given<br />

Fivet another important<br />

life lesson.<br />

“I used to be extremely<br />

introverted; I hated any kind<br />

of social interaction. My first<br />

two or three years of judo I<br />

would stay at the back, in the<br />

shadows, and avoid attention.<br />

Ever since I started judo, my<br />

parents and coach said the same<br />

thing, that it takes you out of<br />

your shell and gives you so much<br />

confidence.”<br />

New shoe shop offers even more<br />

‘fashionable, functional footwear’<br />

Newly opened, the Shoe Room in Riccarton Road,<br />

just across from the Bush Inn Centre, offers an<br />

extensive range of specialised footwear for people<br />

that have foot problems, difficulty finding shoes or are<br />

simply looking for stylish, comfortable shoes.<br />

This bright, modern and attractively laid out store is<br />

owned by podiatrist Charlotte Russell, who also owns<br />

and operates the podiatry clinic Feet First in Upper<br />

Riccarton. The Shoe Room was previously part of the<br />

clinic, but increasing demand for “fashionable, functional<br />

footwear” meant they needed to expand, Charlotte says.<br />

As a stand-alone store with much more space, the<br />

Shoe Room is able to offer an extended range of brands<br />

and styles to accommodate feet requiring specific<br />

features, such as wider, deeper or more narrow fitting<br />

and for those who are on their feet all day.<br />

The Shoe Room Shop assistant Wendy, left,<br />

business owner Charlotte Russell, centre,<br />

and shop manager Maxine.<br />

At present, the majority are women’s shoes, but the<br />

men’s range will be expanded with the arrival of the<br />

winter season collection, Charlotte says.<br />

Brands on display include Mephisto from France,<br />

which is exclusive to the Shoe Room in New Zealand,<br />

Australian brands Frankie 4, Revere and Propet, and<br />

Taos from the United States.<br />

The shop has been thoughtfully designed with seating<br />

and large mirrors to the side of the display areas, so<br />

customers have plenty of space to try shoes on and<br />

walk around in them. Shop manager Maxine and shop<br />

assistant Wendy both have extensive experience in<br />

footwear, so can assist and advise customers on the<br />

best fit and style to suit their needs.<br />

“This is a point of difference for the Shoe Room –<br />

having people who know about shoe fitting to help our<br />

customers,” Charlotte says. “We will also be having a<br />

For the next two weeks –<br />

<strong>January</strong> 27 to February 8<br />

The Shoe Room is having a<br />

New Year Sale<br />

giving customers the chance<br />

to buy stylish, functional<br />

summer footwear at<br />

reduced prices<br />

The Shoe Room offers an extensive range of<br />

stylish, comfortable footwear.<br />

podiatrist in the shop for consultation and fitting by<br />

appointment, though we welcome walk-ins.”<br />

For customer convenience there is an off-street<br />

parking area behind the shop, with access from Auburn<br />

Avenue. Dedicated Shoe Room parking spaces are<br />

located right by the back door.<br />

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

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,<br />

[Edition NOR’WEST datE] NEWS 27<br />

Neck assessment vital after<br />

concussion injury<br />

What role does the neck play in<br />

concussion injury?<br />

Research shows that the average<br />

concussion injury involves 95g of force to<br />

the head. It can take as little as 4g of force<br />

to cause an injury to the upper cervical<br />

spine.<br />

This means it is virtually impossible<br />

to have a concussion injury without<br />

also injuring the structures at the top<br />

of the neck. The latest medical research<br />

acknowledges that the neck plays a<br />

significant role in post-concussion<br />

symptoms.<br />

The symptoms of an<br />

uncomplicated mild concussion<br />

will usually resolve within the first<br />

two weeks post-injury. However,<br />

some people will experience<br />

symptoms for a lot longer. It is<br />

vital to get the neck assessed as<br />

it can be the cause of lingering<br />

symptoms.<br />

The neck can be mistakenly<br />

thought of as one structure;<br />

however, the upper cervical spine<br />

is completely different from the rest of<br />

the spine, both in structure and function.<br />

This area is particularly vulnerable<br />

during a concussion injury and has a<br />

major influence on brain function, as the<br />

brainstem lies within the upper cervical<br />

spine.<br />

Children, teenagers and females are<br />

more susceptible to concussion injuries<br />

due to the muscles of the neck being<br />

smaller and weaker in these groups. This<br />

means that the acceleration of the head is<br />

greater during impact, increasing the risk<br />

of damage to the brain and structures in<br />

the neck.<br />

If you have sustained a concussion<br />

injury and have ongoing symptoms,<br />

you need to get your neck checked by a<br />

practitioner with specialised knowledge<br />

and post-graduate training in the upper<br />

cervical spine. This is a delicate area and<br />

needs to be carefully examined to ensure<br />

that injury and dysfunction are diagnosed<br />

correctly.<br />

The team at The Headache Clinic have<br />

undergone extensive training in the<br />

upper cervical spine and work exclusively<br />

in this area. Their practitioners have<br />

extensive knowledge and experience in<br />

treating post-concussion syndrome. The<br />

Headache Clinic use a targeted approach<br />

to assess and treat the upper cervical and<br />

ensure strength and stability in the neck is<br />

restored to decrease the risk of re-injury.<br />

Concussion is a complicated injury that<br />

needs to be taken seriously. The effects<br />

can be lifelong if they are not managed<br />

correctly by professionals experienced in<br />

treating concussion injuries.<br />

on the corner of Papanui and Blighs<br />

Roads. For more information visit<br />

Aikido beginners<br />

Interested in aikido? “Then follow<br />

the Nike approach and “just do it””<br />

is the advice instructor Andrew<br />

Williamson repeats to beginners.<br />

“Every new student is naturally<br />

apprehensive about beginning a<br />

Japanese martial art aikido, we have<br />

all ‘been there‘.”<br />

At Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury<br />

we take care to ease beginners into<br />

training through basics classes.<br />

With that first step onto the mat, we<br />

focus on beginners understanding<br />

the fundamentals of aikido so that<br />

they can take the next step and<br />

begin a life long study of the art.<br />

“We want students to develop<br />

technically and physically as quickly<br />

as possible”, notes Williamson. “We<br />

can then introduce them to more<br />

advanced training and international<br />

instructors and build the total<br />

knowledge base of our group.”<br />

Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury<br />

has dojos in Burnside and Linwood<br />

and provides daily classes for adults<br />

and children. Beginners are very<br />

welcome.<br />

christchurch School of Music<br />

Christchurch School of Music (CSM)<br />

has offered high quality music tuition and<br />

ensembles to Cantabrians for 65 years,<br />

with many of its alumni now performing<br />

in orchestras, bands and choirs across New<br />

Zealand and the world.<br />

“From an engaging preschool<br />

programme to high quality adult tuition<br />

and everything in between, CSM caters<br />

to everyone aged from 2 to 92, whatever<br />

their level of playing or singing” says Music<br />

Director Celia Stewart.<br />

It offers tuition in all orchestral<br />

instruments, recorder, ukulele, guitar,<br />

piano and voice, and musicianship classes.<br />

A wide range of ensembles includes<br />

orchestras at every level; two choirs; wind,<br />

guitar and recorder ensembles; chamber<br />

music; jazz combo; concert band; big band;<br />

and rock bands.<br />

CSM’s outreach programme takes tutors<br />

into schools to offer strings, band, ukulele,<br />

recorder and percussion tuition.<br />

“The school is a place where all the<br />

family can learn and enjoy being part of<br />

an ensemble at their level,” says Celia “It<br />

is always wonderful to see a mother and<br />

daughter playing in the same orchestra.<br />

There is a strong sense of community on<br />

a Saturday with music coming from every<br />

space.”<br />

Saturday and after school tuition will<br />

take place starting in <strong>2020</strong> at Linwood<br />

College on the old Avonside Girls’ High<br />

site on Avonside Drive.<br />

CSM offers a range of performing<br />

opportunities from solo recitals, regular<br />

soirees to its annual Showcase.<br />

“CSM has an important role to play,<br />

regardless of whether students go on to<br />

become professional musicians, or listeners<br />

with a well-grounded knowledge and love<br />

of music,” says Celia, who started at the<br />

then Christchurch School of Instrumental<br />

Music as a six year old and has worked in a<br />

wide range of roles within the School.<br />

The school has always championed the<br />

recorder, a beautiful instrument in its own<br />

right as well as a great starting instrument<br />

so it is offering a very special deal. For<br />

just $52 a year, students receive a quality<br />

instrument, a tutor book and group tuition<br />

with excellent tutors for the full year.<br />

continuing education<br />

Gain a second chance at NCEA<br />

NCEA credits after leaving secondary<br />

school, thanks to Vision College. The<br />

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are<br />

spreading awareness to the young people<br />

in the community, making sure they know<br />

that achieving NCEA levels outside of<br />

school is within their reach.<br />

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’<br />

programme offers students without NCEA<br />

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1<br />

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of<br />

skills designed to make them employable.<br />

Students earn their NCEA credits in<br />

a more practical way, through games,<br />

hands-on activities, and by applying their<br />

learning to real life situations. Students<br />

also get to experience tasters of different<br />

career and study paths to help them<br />

decide where they would like to head after<br />

completing ‘Ultimate’.<br />

School leavers can also enrol in<br />

Security, Early Childcare or Business<br />

Administration courses to earn not only<br />

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also a<br />

career qualification too in just six months.<br />

These courses are all free for anyone aged<br />

between 16 and 19. Upon completion<br />

students can even pathway onto higher<br />

study with Vision College in Web and<br />

Software Development, Early Childhood<br />

Education, and Counselling.<br />

Vision College are enrolling now for<br />

February! For more information on their<br />

courses, call 0800 834 834, txt “VISION”<br />

to 027 557 8839, or visit their website<br />

www.vision.ac.nz.<br />

Each year up to 10,000 young people<br />

in New Zealand leave school with little<br />

or no formal qualifications. Many teens<br />

disengage with school as the teaching<br />

environment simply does not suit their<br />

style of learning. Research shows that<br />

without a qualification they are more likely<br />

to have difficulties entering the workforce,<br />

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and<br />

a driver’s licence.<br />

Many early school leavers unfortunately<br />

believe that secondary school is the only<br />

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.<br />

This misconception is particularly<br />

concerning for those young people<br />

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling<br />

environment, but still want to find<br />

employment or complete certain industry<br />

training courses for which an NCEA<br />

qualification is a pre-requisite.<br />

Every year dozens of young people<br />

are getting a second chance at earning<br />

Now that exams are over,<br />

“ Since Mum’s been here,<br />

she’s just blossomed”<br />

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

plenty of company throughout her whole life.<br />

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

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

they’ve discovered it’s been anything but quiet.<br />

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

something going on,” remarks Alma.<br />

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

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

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

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

Alma with Maree as a toddler<br />

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

has become more herself again.<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

outings. It’s a lovely place to be.”<br />

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

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

“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<br />

place like this. It’s just been a godsend.”<br />
