Dryland block tests rural appetite

A101­hectare Mid Canterbury

farming property to be sold at

auctiononJuly 8isgenerating

plenty of interest.

There have beenjust five

farmssoldinthe district in the

past three months andthe sale

of the Chatmos Roadproperty,

which has arating valuation of

$2.85million, is expected to

give an idea of where the

There have been16farms

(greater than 20ha) sold in the

past 12 months in Mid

Canterbury. The median price

per hectare nationally for

farmssoldinthe three months

to May was $23,221, according

to the RealEstate Institute of

New Zealand.

PropertyBrokersrealestate

consultant Greg Jopson said

with so fewrecent sales in Mid

Canterbury, an auction was a

good way to test what buyers

were now prepared to pay.

‘‘Auctions offer vendors and

buyersatransparent processto

rest the marketfor all.’’

The sale of the dryland block at Willowby will be abarometer for

farm sales in the district

The Chatmos Road dryland

block has been leased for the

past fouryears and run as dairy

support, withwinter grazing,

beef andlambfinishingand

pasture or cereal crops.

Mr Jopson said the rural

market locally generally

reflected the nationalscene,

wherefarms sales were down

aboutathirdonthe previous

year.

Therewere 16 farm sales

from July 2019 to June 2020and

29 sales in thepreviousyear.

MidCanterbury farm sales have

followedthe nationaltrend,

with five sales in the past three

months, compared to ninefor

the same period in 2019.

He said while all farming

operations faced challenges

going forward,including

evolving environmental

compliance, agriculture was

still seen as an essential

industry,especiallyasthe

country recovers fromCovid­19.

Thevirus hadalso given

property owners, both townand

country, pause to reflect on

their lives andbusinesses.

Some hadchosen to downsizeorlook

at their overall

businesses.

He said the sale of the

property at Willowby would

be watchedclosely in the

district by other landowners

andprofessionals, who are

considering their future

options or advising future

decision making.

‘‘MostMid Canterbury

farmsales in recent years

have been to aneighbouror

someone in the near area

andweare using the auction

to try to establish where

values are at, because there

is limited activity at the

thinkingabout the 2021 event.

Organisers Bob McDonald

and Sue Cooper saythere will

still be challenges post­covid

and they might have to finda

new venue, depending on the

progressofrevitalisation

work in theCBD.

But theyare committedto

Boulevard Day2021,and want

people to lock in September

27.

Mr McDonald saidEast

Street was the final leg of the

CBD revamp and organisers

would be keeping an eyeon

progress.

If the main street was

unsuitable, due to

construction,organisers

would look elsewhere.

‘‘It might be that we could

hold it in the West Street

carpark.’’

He said the ongoing

uncertaintiescreated by

Covid­19 made long­term

planning difficult. It hadbeen

disappointing to cancel the

2020event.

Stallholders were advised

last weekthat Boulevard Day

would not go ahead.

Mr McDonald saidthere

were concernsabout the

potential for thevirus to reemerge

in the wider

community on the backofnew

He said 45 stallholders had

‘‘Peoplehavebeen very

Questions over agricultural advisor role

LINDA.CLARKE

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

The Ashburton District Council

is employing an agricultural

portfolio advisor butthere was

confusion among councillors

recently about what the new

recruit will do.

The 18­monthfixed­term job

has been advertised and

applications closed June 24. It

is being funded with $125,000 by

the Provincial Growth Fund.

The job description saysthe

advisor willbetasked with

“identifying and contributing to

initiatives which reduce

emissions and increase

environmentallysustainable

rural sector practices”.

Several Ashburton

councillors have asked for

more details and asked why

council would need its own

advisor. Cr Angus McKay said

MidCanterbury already had

world­leading farmers and

employing someone fromthe

council to advise them wouldbe

an insult.

He thought the job wasa

duplication of the work already

done by industry­good bodies

likeDairyNZ andthe

Foundation for Arable

Research (FAR).

“Why is thiscouncil entering

into that field that is so well

covered by peopleand

advisors?”

Mayor Neil Brown said he

thought the position was about

employing aperson who would

keep councillorsinformed

about developments in the

agricultural industry. The role

was about sharing information.

Elected councillors already

include members with direct or

close contactsinthe farming

sector.

Cr Lynette Lovett said if

councillors needed advice, they

could ask for it from industry

bodies.

Chief executive Hamish

Riach said the job had come

about through theCanterbury

Mayoral Forum’sfood and fibre

project, which was focused on

the future of agriculture, given

current pressures on

sustainability and the

environment.

It was fixed term, at no costto

ratepayers, and intended to

provide council with

“perspective”, he said.

“We hope it is not a

duplication andwecan pull

some strains of thinking

together so council can receive

updates. We do notreceive any

updatesfrom the farming

sector or the environment.”

Hesaid council needed to

think about land use changes

and freshwaterchallenges, and

therefore needed good advice.

The new advisor would

develop networks and

relationshipswithin the

agricultural, manufacturing

and export industries, and

connect withresearch and

development organisations like

MPIand Lincoln University, all

with aview to contributingto

the goal of achieving

sustainable practices in

conjunction with economic

growth in Mid Canterbury.

‘‘Thepurposeofthe portfolio

advisor is to work withindustry

and communities to identify

suitable PGF projects. Ideally

these will beprojects that play

to the region’s biggest

opportunities for growth.’’

Council has no ongoing

obligation to retain the

agricultural advisor after the

fixed term ends in March 2022.

Thejob description said

council was after “an

experienced individual who

can deliver practical results

through strategic and scientific

thinking’’.

Mr Woods, the owner of

Mother Nature, as well as local

and domestic support.

‘‘It is what it is at the end of

Mr Woods said restaurant

numberswereticking over,

and were especiallygood at

the weekends.

He anticipated abusyschool

holidays, but was less sure that

bookingsfrom Australia in

September would go ahead.

‘‘I think we’ve missedout on

the Australian market this

winter and Idon’t see tourists

fromthat country being

allowed in here until October

or November at the earliest.’’

Mr Woods, an Australianby

birth, said 60 per cent of his

revenue wasfromthe

domestic market, 30 per cent

fromAustralia and just 10 per

cent from the rest of the world.

Ski Time was now in his 35th

year of operation and in all

thattime hehad always been

impressed with how well

Kiwis adapted.

‘‘We’ve been through the

global financialcrisis, the

Canterbury earthquakes and

nowCovid­19 is another test of

resilience.’’

The work, called Seismic Shift,

Adrian Hall said he had lived in

erosion and damage to nature in

the area.

In 2006 there had been icebergs

Children at Netherby School

enjoyed ahot, nutritious lunch on

Tuesday as partofanewpilot

project called Kai For Kids.

From July 20 the school willbe

the firstinthe district to receive

the free, daily lunch service

option forits pupils.

KaiFor Kids is the brainchild

of local businesswoman Joanne

Taylor and hasthe backing of

volunteer supporters.

Some small donations had

been received for the new

initiative and anumber of

funding applications were in the

pipeline, said MrsTaylor.

The aim of Kai ForKids was

food security and getting healthy,

nutritious food into the bellies of

localchildren.

Mrs Taylor said her lofty aim

was to offer the lunch option to

all primary and preschools in the

district.

Shewas in discussion with

other schools at the moment.

Mrs Taylor said arecent child

poverty report showed that onein

five children in New Zealand did

not always have access to three

nutritious meals aday.

‘‘We needtolook afterour own.

‘‘We are acommunity that

cares andwecan do this in this

district,’’she said.

Local caterer Chantelle Quinn

from Twentyfour Catering had

been helping out with menu

options.

Among the supporters lending

The school willoffer feedback

on portion size, tastiness and on

other areas, and any issues will

be ironed out.

Netherby School principal Phil

Wheeler said he believed lunch

was an important partofthe

school day.

students were getting enough

food to eat, but there wasalarge

Count the birds in your patch

MARY RALSTON

Nature Matters

The New Zealand garden bird

survey is on now!

This is an annual event run

by Landcare Researchthat

depends on the contribution of

members of the public.The

idea is to sit in your garden or

local park and countthe

numbers of different species of

birds you see in an hour.

This year it runs until

Sunday, July 5, so over the next

few days,set aside an hour,

take anotebook and cup of tea

out to the garden and record

the highest number of each

speciesyou see.

Before you start, look at the

garden bird surveywebsite for

handy hints and photos of the

birds likely to be encountered.

When you’ve finished,goback

to the garden bird survey

website to enter the results.

In our area, the most

commonly seen birds will

probably be the house

sparrows, chaffinches,

goldfinches, blackbirds and

the lovelyfantails and

silvereyes.

Fantails are often seen in gardens at this timeofyear.

If you’re lucky, you may see a

bellbird or tui and in areas

with bush or plenty of trees,

you may see (or hear) grey

warblers or even kereru (wood

pigeon).

Somedifferentspecies of

birds can look similar:

blackbirds and starlings can

easily be confused, as can song

thrushes and female

blackbirds, and female

sparrowsand dunnocks. But

don’t be intimidated –the most

important thingistobe

involved –soget out there and

give it ago.

The garden bird survey is a

good example of citizen

science. These are research

projects that depend on nonscientists

to contribute data

and observations.

This bird survey, held at the

same time each year, helps

build an understandingof

long­termtrends in bird

numbers.

It is generally agreed that

the more birds there are,the

healthierour environment. In

many countries,the common

birds –even sparrows and

pigeons –are no longer seen in

the numbers they once were

because there is no food for

them, especially insects.

In New Zealand, we still

have lots of birds, but we need

to keep an eye on the numbers

and trends, so if you can,

please help with this

important survey. Here is the

Local consultations on centre stage

One aspect Ifind incredibly

valuable about sitting around

the council table is being able

to hear from our community

and seeking their opinions on

arange of proposals for our

district. Last week, we had one

such opportunity with the

speed limit review hearing and

it was areally beneficial

experience with some great

contributions.

Every few years, the council

reviews the speeds on our

local roads in an effort to

ensure they are still safe and

appropriate for residents. The

way our roads are used can

change over time and growth,

particularly on the outskirts of

our towns can also require

speed limits to change. It's an

essential exercise to protect

our people.

Iwas very pleased with both

the number and quality of

submissions we received on

the proposed speed changes.

More than 200 submissions

were received, and several

people from all across the

district came to speak to their

submission.

We heard from local school

students, school board

members as well as urban and

rural residents. No­one knows

their roads quite like the

people who live on and drive

the roads day in and day out.

They see how the road is used,

the behaviour of other drivers

and pedestrians, and they see

first­hand how the conditions

can impact on safety.

That's why it was so

beneficial to hear from so

many different people and

organisations. Your input

helps the council to better

understand what is needed

and Icommend all of you on

your contribution to this vital

project.

Now that we have heard

from residents and

deliberated on the proposals,

recommendations for the

speed limit review will be

included in areport to the

council's infrastructure

services committee on July 9. It

is then expected that those

final decisions are taken to the

full council meeting in early

August for adoption.

Still on the topic of public

consultations, we recently

adopted the draft Revenue and

Financing Policy as well as the

draft Development and

Financial Contributions

Policy. Both are now open for

feedback, and it's important

that we hear from you on the

changes they are proposing.

The Revenue and Financing

Policy is all about how the

council charges for the

services and activities it

provides. Simply speaking,

this generally means who pays

and the way things are charged

through rates. The

Development and Financial

Contributions Policy

addresses how much

developers should be charged

to connect to our local

infrastructure.

Visit the council website

ashburtondc.govt.nz/

haveyoursay to read the

proposals and let us know what

you think by July 26.

There is amuch greater

chance of getting these

decisions right when we have

the involvement and input

from the people these

decisions will affect, and that

is you –our community.

Winter garden maintenance

Vegetables

Crop rotation maysound

overly scientific for the

ordinary gardener, but it is an

important way of getting the

mostfrom thevegetable garden

while minimisingthe risk of

diseases, such as clubroot in

cabbages or basal rot (causedby

Fusarium oxysporum)in

onions, garlic andleeks.

Designed so crops can take

different minerals from thesoil

each year, good rotation will

take account of chemical and

physical differences between

plants. The basic rule is never

to grow plantsfromthe same

family or type in the samespot

two years in arow.

Leaving aside perennial

vegetables, suchasrhubarb,

globeartichokes and

asparagus, which stay in the

same plot, divide yourgarden

into three areas.

Makealist of what crops can

be grouped: potatoes,celery,

leeks, carrots, parsnips and

beetrootingroup one; peas,

beans (all types), onionsand

spinach in grouptwo;and

brassicas (including Brussels

sprouts, cabbages, broccoli,

cauliflowers and kohl rabi) in

groupthree. Groweach group

in separate plots thisseason.

In thesecond season, grow

tap­rooted plants (groupone)in

Dig the ground deeply,add

withthe crowns about 2.5cm

below the surface. Jerusalem

artichoke tubers, shallots and

garlic can also be planted.

Flowers

Croprotationinthe flower

Stocks andwallflowers in

mass displays exhaust the soil

in similar ways to vegetables

and shouldnot follow each

other.Likewise, if dahliasare

growninthe same soil year

after year, they willmake

excessivedemands on some

soil elements and plant quality

will drop.

Ideally,dahlias, gladioli,

pansies, violas,tulips,

hyacinths andnarcissi should

be planted in different areas of

the garden each year.

Rose­planting timehas

arrived and nurserieswill soon

be full of this popularshrub.

Winter spraying of apples

spray will help control woolly

If you prefer not to spray,

attractingwaxeyes to the

them to clean up bugs.

Average district rates rise of 2.56%

Ashburton District Councillors

signed off their annual plan

with an average rates increase

of 2.56 per cent last week.

The annual budget exercise

is abig job and mayor Neil

Brown thanked council staff as

they headed back to their desks

to begin implementing a

programme of spending on

projects and services vital to

the running of the district.

Council will collect just over

$38 million in rates, of which

$8.1m will be spent on roads

and transportation, $6.3m on

recreation facilities and $4.8m

on drinking water.

Another $4m will be spent

each on wastewater and parks

and open spaces.

Rates for an Ashburton

residential property worth

$350,000 will be $2230, about

$10 less than last year.

Rates for arural property

worth $9m are $7930, up 3.2 per

cent.

The local body has pruned

spending as much as it can as

its ratepayers deal with the

ongoing impact of Covid­19.

There is help for those

struggling to pay their rates.

Mr Brown said the impacts of

Covid­19 were being felt widely

throughout the community, the

country and the world.

The effects of the virus would

also impact council’s long­term

plan for 2021­31, which would

be prepared over the next 12

months, he said.

Council would have to look at

its core business, and choose

‘‘must­haves’’ over ‘‘nice­tohaves’’.

To lower rates for the coming

year, council used its AA+

credit rating to reduce interest

rates on its loans and it also

reduced funding to Experience

Mid Canterbury because the

international tourist market

evaporated when New Zealand

closed its borders.

Operating funds for the

Ashburton Art Gallery,

Ashburton Trust Event Centre

and Safer Ashburton were kept

at last year’s levels. Council

staff would receive minimal

wage and salary increases.

Mr Brown said the smaller

rate rise would not reduce

levels of services or delay

important projects.

Council was committed to

completing the CBD

revitalisation, Ashburton River

crossing wastewater pipeline

and water supply upgrades.

The new Ashburton Library

and Civic Centre building

would also be progressed.

Climbing frame added

Adonation of rewards has

funded new playground

equipment at Hampstead

thenew equipment hadbeen

He said the school had

received an email saying it

had received reward points

andalist of items that could

be purchased with the points.

Theschool was grateful for

thepoints, but still unsure

who exactly they should

thank for them.

Year 12 WhiteWater Rafting Trip

Outdoor Education teacher Luke Martin said that the Year 12 Outdoor

Education students were very happy indeed toget the‘nod’tobeable to

head out on their trips again.

White Water Rafting down the Rangitata River onWednesday 17June

became the first trip after lockdown and, although in the middle of winter,

the weather-gods playednicely and put on awarmsunnyday.

The trip gave students the opportunity toput in to practise what they had

learnt from their Risk ManagementUnit.Luke said thatitisall well and good

talking about risks and howtominimise them,but first-hand experienceis

always moremeaningful.

Allstudents gained some helpful insights from the experienced guides and

were able to discuss strategies used to minimise the risks associated with

whitewater rafting.

Theday wasenjoyedbyall and,for all,itwas greattobeback in the outdoors.

Severalstudentsbravedthe cold to jump overboardtowards theend of the

trip, while some chose the stay-dry approach. At abalmy 7degrees this

option seemed sensible.

It wasrewarding to have the guides saythey were very impressed with our

students,commending them on their behaviour and positiveattitudes.

Term Three will see the class head out for their three-day hike and, later in

the term,the Mountain Biking trip.

AshHutt Girls’ 1st XV Successful Gala Night

The AshHutt Girls’ 1st XV played their first games of their season on

Wednesday24June,ataGala Nightheld at Alpine EnergyStadiuminTimaru,

where each of the six teamsentered playedtwo twelve-minute half games.

Coach Vaughan Ward said that the team had trained well in atwo-hour

session on the Monday night (22 June), which also incorporated the

compulsory practical component ofthe Rugby Smart Course for Coaches

and Management, signedoffbythe MidCanterburyRugbyUnion.

With all but one ofthe AshHutt players unable to make it, due to work

commitments,itwasverypleasing formanagement to be able to takeafull

squad,several of whomhad not playedbefore. These numbersalso included

five Under 15girls as observers -Mere Apaipo, Maria Hala, Lela Mangubat,

Tereise Salima,Ripena Umaga.

Game One was against the St Kevin’s College/Waitaki Girls’ High School

team at 5:15pm, after ashort warm up/team run. The first half produced

two individual and very good team tries to give AshHutt a20-0 lead at

half time.

St Kevin’s/Waitaki Girls’ came back strongly in the second half however,

scoring twotries and with theirdefensiveeffort keeping AshHutt scoreless,

forafinal scoreof20-10.

With no time to catch breath, the team then shifted fields to play Timaru

Girls’ High School at5:45pm.

The first half required astrong defensive effort by AshHutt, but, with little

possession in the first five minutes, the team scored the first two tries of

the game. Timaru Girls’ High School responded well, with two tries also.

AshHutt led at thebreak 15-10 and, with twofurtherAshHutttries in the

secondhalf, securedthe win of 25-10.

Theteam (pictured left)

showedagreat deal of

emotion afterthefinal

whistle,and wasvery

pleased with their efforts,

as were the Coaches,

Management and

supporters.

Awell-deservedstopatMcDonalds beforeleaving Timarufor home,was a

greatway to finish thenight.

Although it is naturallydisappointing,but understandable,tohavea

shortened season, the girlshaveall returnedfromlockdownreadytopick up

where they left off.Thereisaclear advantage in havingaleadership group

within the team,helping to lead the lessexperienced players very well.

Paying off also, isthe time that has been spent onthe basic skills of the

game. Management believes the team will compete well this year and, at

the time of writing, they were looking forward totheir pre-season game

against Geraldine HighSchool yesterday.

Gala Night team members were - Grace Bleach, Khalani Brightwell,

Sharla Brightwell,Margaret Eli, StephGeeson, ChloeGuthrie,MeganHurley,

Ngahuia Maeva, Rangi Makutu, Roi Makutu,Tasha Mann, Mandy Manukau,

Jasaiahon

learning trip

Local Tuia JasaiahClaydon­Wadeisabout to

head to Wellington for alearningjourney he

hopeswill take him high places.

The 18­year­old is offtoVictoriaUniversity

to study political scienceand te reo Maori.

The Tuia programme is about helping

young Maori develop leadershipskills for

their communities and in Ashburton Jasaiah

is mentored by AshburtonDistrict mayorNeil

Brown.

Jasaiahisalso aGlobalAmbassador,

representing the AshburtonDistrict Council

at multi­culturaleventsintown.

He stoppedbylast week’scouncil meeting

to tell councillorsabout hisbig move.

Hesaid theTuia programmewas helping

him learnmore abouthis Maoriheritage and

he was becoming more fluentinthe language.

‘‘Ithas been eye­opening to learnabout my

background. Inever embraced it previously

andIhaveshared thejourney with family as

well, as it has been really inspiring.’’

As Tuia, he meets regularly with70 other

young Maorileaders aroundthecountry,

while the Global Ambassador programme

provides professional development

workshops aimed at promoting cultural

diversity.

Jasaiahsaidhehopedhis degree from

Victoria would leadtoworkindispute

resolution and ultimatelyajob withthe

Waitangi Tribunal.

He is already putting his new connectionsto

good useand has scored himself an invitation

to dinnerat the Governor­General’s house.

Favel to stand

for Social Credit

Usually this recognition assembly is held on the Chessboard, in frontofthe

whole College,atthe endofTermOne.

This year, due to the COVID lockdown atthat stage, the change was made to

holdthe Year 12 andYear 13 levels separately and, to avoid anyweatherissues

with an outside eventinthe winterseason,toholdthe events in the Auditorium.

This proved to be awise decision, given the weather on Wednesday 24June

wasn’t conducivetositting outside!

As well as family members of recipients attending, this move meant recipients

could also be acknowledged by their year levelpeers.

These celebrations of success arealways positiveoccasions,and in next week’s

newsletter we willbeable to acknowledgeYear 13 recipients, with that assembly

having been held yesterday.

Deputy Principal Helen Shore-

Taylor introduced the assembly

and welcomed all, while Principal

Ross Preece (right) spoke to the

audience, saying that Ashburton

College students had produced NCEA

Merit and Excellence results 10% above

thenational meanfigures.

Ross also challenged the Year 12

students to think of challenges

ahead, including potential post-

COVID changes to employment

opportunities. However, headvised

that apositive, ‘can-do’, hard-working attitude is of real value. Quoted was the

attitude of an Airline Senior Pilot who, through job losses, iscurrently working

in New Zealand Post’s Parcel Division. He was described as having afantastic

attitude towards his current employment. When life doesn’t go according to

planagood attitude will countfor much andtake people alongway,including

resiliencetoweather thestorms.

Ploughing stalwart John

Stalkerwon the vintageopen

category last weekend in the

Mid CanterburyVintage

Machinery Club qualifying

ploughing match.

He was one of 21 well­drilled

ploughmen to take part in the

event at the Begg family farm at

Wakanui.

Mr Stalker comes from along

family line of ploughman. He

has aphotograph of a

newspaper article of his

namesake, John Stalker dating

back to the early 1900s.

While the youngerMrStalker

did not startploughing until

1959, when in his early 20s, he

did represent New Zealandina

world ploughingchampionship.

Mid Canterbury Vintage

Machinery Club ploughing

committee president Colin

Boon said the annual match, in

overcast conditions on a

harvested grasspaddock,

included silverplough, vintage

open, vintage qualifying and

horses categories. Although

just one horse team was

entered.

The club, whichhas around

100 members, was also

representedbysix or seven

club membersploughing.

‘‘We’ve also got some of the

really good to get those new

there’s alot of older guys

dropping out at the top end. So

Ihope they do well and stick

with it. It’s good to see.’’

Mr Boon was competing in

the vintage qualifying. However

it was not his first match of the

season. He already had two

seconds and athird underthis

belt in other matches. His

second placings meant he

qualifiedfor the New Zealand

Ploughingmatch in Kirwee

nextmonth for achanceto

representNew Zealand in

Ireland later next year.

Champion ploughman Bob

Mehrtens, who won the vintage

machinery club’s Silver Plough

The Ashburton College and

Mount Hutt College combined

girls’ first XV rugby side is

looking forward to ashort and

sharp season.

The side has had two preseason

outings ahead of the

start of their competition on

July 22, when they will take on

St Kevins/Waitaki Girls in

Timaru.

AshHutt will take some

confidence from wins over St

Kevins/Waitaki and Timaru

Girls’ High School in arugby

gala night at Timaru on June

24.

They played Geraldine this

week in another warm­up

game. The rugby gala games

were their first of the season,

having been constrained by

covid lockdown restrictions.

The gala games provided a

good opportunity for the full

squad of 28, some of whom had

never played before.

The first game against St

Kevins/Waitaki Girls produced

two individual and two very

good team tries in the first half

for AshHutt to lead 20­0 at half

time. St Kevins/Waitaki Girls

came back strongly in the

second half scoring two tries,

and their defensive effort kept

AshHutt scoreless. The final

score was 20­10.

The first half of the next

game against Timaru Girls

required astrong defensive

effort by AshHutt, and with

little possession AshHutt

scored the first two tries of the

game. Timaru Girls responded

with two tries. AshHutt led

15­10 at the break and another

two tries secured the win

25­10.

Coach Vaughan Ward,

management and supporters

were pleased with the results,

saying astrong leadership

group in the side was paying

dividends. Paying off also is

time spent on basic skills.

The AshHutt girls’ first XV is ready for arugby season shortened

by Covid­19.

Careerchangedauntingbut worthit

Sometimes in life we change career

out of need and sometimes we do it to

follow apassion oralong-held dream.

Often, study isthe bridge to that new

career.

It was for Gina Coffey who’d been a

flight attendant for 10 years when she

decidedtobecomeanurse.Likewisefor

Reece Scott who ended a17-year career

in the travel industry tobecome achef.

Study was also the pathway for legal

secretary Jacqui Barnes, who retrained

as an interior designer, and for Luci

Gavin who swapped acareer inretail,

hospitality and administration for life

on theroaddriving bigtrucks.

All four studied towards their new

careers atAra Institute ofCanterbury,

which has decades of experience

helping individuals gain knowledgeand

skills for rewarding careers. Catering to

learners of all ages and backgrounds,

Ara offers more than 150 study options

across abroad range of subjects, plus

comprehensive studentsupport services

designedtoensure studentsuccess.

If you’re used to regular hours and a

regular pay packet, returning tostudy

is challenging,” Gina says. “But Ienjoyed

leaving mycomfort zone, exercising my

mind and learning something new. I

made friends with similar interests and

it allowed me to follow my passion.”

Gina never doubted her decision to

switch careers and says returning to

study was a great move. She’s now

a registered nurse at Christchurch

After 17 yearsinthe travel industry,

ReeceScott has foundarewarding

Reece, who changed career because he

felt the need to challenge himself again,

also has no regrets about his decision

to change direction. He’s keen to

encourage others –especiallythose who

aren’t happy intheir current career -to

follow his example and study towards

anew one. “Definitely do it,” he says.

“Retraining has prepared mereally well

forthisindustry.”

Luci agrees, saying returning tostudy

has not only given her the skills she

needs for her new career driving heavy

vehicles, “I’ve also gained confidence in
