Work starts on multi-million<br />

dollar Parklands sports hall<br />

WORK ON the second stage of<br />

a new multi-use sports hall in<br />

Parklands is under way.<br />

City councillor Phil Mauger<br />

turned the first sod at the<br />

Pūkeko Centre this week<br />

- a community sports and<br />

recreation hub currently under<br />

development on Chadbury St.<br />

The four-stage development<br />

is being undertaken as a joint<br />

venture between the Parklands<br />

Bowling Club and Parklands<br />

Junior Rugby Club.<br />

Said Jane Mahoney, of<br />

the Pūkeko Centre: “When<br />

complete, the Pūkeko Centre<br />

will not only provide clubrooms<br />

for the founding clubs, but will<br />

serve as a multi-use sports and<br />

recreation facility for the whole<br />

community, and a home base<br />

for other grassroots clubs and<br />

groups in the wider Parklands<br />

area.”<br />

Stage one - the clubrooms and<br />

pavilion - was completed and<br />

opened in December 2017 at a<br />

cost of about $1.3 million.<br />

Stage two involves the<br />

construction of a full-sized,<br />

multi-use sports hall, a<br />

breezeway connecting the two<br />

buildings and a major upgrade<br />

of the car park area.<br />

The second stage has an<br />

estimated cost of $2 million,<br />

of which $450,000 has already<br />

been raised through grants from<br />

the city council’s Capital Endowment<br />

Fund ($200,000) and<br />

from the New Zealand Lottery<br />

NEW BEGINNINGS: City councillor Phil Mauger, along<br />

with Braxton Winder and Leighton Parry, of the Parklands<br />

Rugby Club, turn the first sod at the new Pūkeko Centre.<br />

Grants Board ($250,000). There<br />

was already a demand for the<br />

sports hall, which will be used<br />

by people of all ages and abilities<br />

- including three local primary<br />

schools, basketball, a fencing<br />

club, karate groups, indoor<br />

bowls and many more.<br />

It will also become home to<br />

Parafed Canterbury, which has<br />

signed an agreement to hire<br />

office space in the stage two<br />

facility, and will run all of its<br />

programmes from there.<br />

The Pūkeko Centre Project<br />

Committee is now actively<br />

seeking more funding to<br />

complete the project from<br />

other funding providers,<br />

philanthropic organisations and<br />

local businesses.<br />

“The aim of the Pūkeko<br />

Centre is to welcome and<br />

support a connected, healthy<br />

and vibrant community by<br />

enabling and facilitating a range<br />

of activities for people of all ages<br />

and all abilities,” said Mahoney.<br />

Gautam’s determination pays off<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

AFTER MIGRATING from a<br />

small town in India to building<br />

a life in Christchurch for the last<br />

17 years, Sunita Gautam believes<br />

it’s her time to give back.<br />

A determination to serve<br />

her community has paid off,<br />

as she has now been elected to<br />

represent the Central Ward in<br />

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board.<br />

Last week’s by-election results<br />

saw the Edgeware resident<br />

receiving 958 votes for the<br />

seat, over candidates Celeste<br />

Donovan, Clive Antony, Paul<br />

Lonsdale, Wayne Hawker,<br />

Faimeh Burke and John Stringer.<br />

Gautam is looking forward to<br />

the journey ahead and is taking<br />

over the position after the death<br />

of long-serving community<br />

board member and former city<br />

councillor Sally Buck.<br />

“I’m excited, this is just the<br />

beginning. I’m really proud of<br />

the Central Ward,” she said.<br />

“I really want to thank the<br />

people of central Christchurch<br />

for seeing beyond my skin<br />

colour. I’m grateful for the opportunity<br />

and I will not let them<br />

down.”<br />

Her vision for the ward includes<br />

making it a place where<br />

Central Ward representative of the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community<br />

Board.<br />

everyone felt safe, valued and<br />

had a sense of belonging.<br />

“We also need to sort out<br />

parking for residents, unhosted<br />

home-share accommodation and<br />

footpaths and roads.”<br />

A major focus was on encouraging<br />

more civic participation in<br />

her ward as she identified a lack<br />

of engagement and education on<br />

what a community board can do<br />

for residents.<br />

The recent by-election saw a<br />

23.46 per cent voter turnout, and<br />

33.43 per cent at the local elections<br />

last year.<br />

“Engagement – it’s what is<br />

lacking and it’s a frustration.<br />

I want to make sure the community<br />

understands the process<br />

as people have no idea what the<br />

structure is,” she said.<br />

“Like if people want to move<br />

a tree on their street, you need<br />

to go through the community<br />

board. Most of the time the<br />

process isn’t clear to the public.”<br />

She also wanted to prioritise<br />

taking steps to ensure Linwood<br />

Village gets a revamp and becomes<br />

a safer place to be in.<br />

Gautam moved from Shaktinagar<br />

(UP) – a small Indian town<br />

700km north-west of Kolkata<br />

– to Christchurch nearly two<br />

decades ago after an arranged<br />

marriage to join her husband,<br />

Sunil Ranjan, in the city.<br />

In that time she has worked as<br />

a business mentor, a justice of the<br />

peace, a marriage celebrant, and<br />

a business and management lecturer<br />

at Canterbury University.<br />

She will also be finishing her<br />

PhD later this year in immigrant<br />

entrepreneurship at UC.<br />

Gautam’s experience in the<br />

migrant and wider community<br />

and a passion for people was<br />

what drew her to the Central<br />

Ward role.<br />

“The council is doing great, but<br />

I wanted to be at the table where<br />

decisions are made,” she said.<br />

“I’m not a complainer, I’m a<br />

person who looks for solutions<br />

and I was getting frustrated that<br />

things weren’t getting done.”<br />

Thursday <strong>October</strong> <strong>22</strong> <strong>2020</strong> 5<br />

Heritage areas to derelict properties<br />

KIA ORA koutou.<br />

September was a big month for<br />

the Waikura/Linwood-Central-<br />

Heathcote Community Board.<br />

Now we are back in level 1 we<br />

are looking forward to easily<br />

welcoming more of you to our<br />

board meetings.<br />

While we commemorated 10<br />

years since our first September 4<br />

earthquake, we also said goodbye<br />

to our dear friend and colleague<br />

Sally Buck.<br />

Sally was a staunch advocate<br />

for the communities she represented<br />

and worked tirelessly<br />

behind the scenes to make true<br />

positive change in Ōtautahi. I<br />

would like us to acknowledge<br />

the inroads she made for our city<br />

especially in the environmental<br />

sector.<br />

The board has now started the<br />

process of looking at derelict<br />

properties on the east side of<br />

Christchurch.<br />

We are seeing massive issues<br />

with many properties that have<br />

been left by owners for many<br />

different reasons. These properties<br />

lower community well-being<br />

and are causing health and safety<br />

concerns for so many.<br />

We are hoping to create a<br />

plan around locating all properties<br />

that are in our ward area<br />

then work with owners, city<br />

council and direct communities<br />

to come to a conclusion<br />

From the board<br />

Alexandra Davids, chair<br />

Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board<br />

that finally will see antisocial<br />

behaviours, litter, illegal dumping,<br />

health, safety and fire risks<br />

addressed.<br />

We are also advocating for<br />

Heritage Parks in the ward area<br />

for the community to use to their<br />

appropriate and full capacity.<br />

We, unfortunately, are seeing<br />

our Heritage Parks with so many<br />

restrictions around them that<br />

they are not able to cater to their<br />

communities needs.<br />

Avebury House gardens is an<br />

example of how we could be utilising<br />

a beautiful outdoor area for<br />

NEEDS: The gardens at Avebury House could<br />

be used for the greater good of the community.<br />

The Ferry Rd and Woolston Village upgrades are<br />

still under way, an artist’s impression shows how<br />

the village will look when work has finished.<br />

the greater good and well-being<br />

of the wider community.<br />

The Ferry Rd and Woolston<br />

Village upgrades are still under<br />

way. We want to thank you all<br />

for your patience and support of<br />

the businesses at this time.<br />

We know it’s a frustrating time<br />

for many but thank you all for<br />

continuing to shop local.<br />

Ready-to-eat meals wholesome and convenient<br />

PASSIONATE: Northwood New World’s in-store chef Jeremy<br />

loves creating popular Kiwi dishes.<br />

RECOGNISING THAT people<br />

lead much busier lives these<br />

days, the team at New World<br />

Northwood are stepping in to<br />

help by providing two different<br />

ready-to-eat meal options<br />

designed to not only save their<br />

customers time and effort, but<br />

also offer them a wholesome, delicious<br />

alternative to takeaways.<br />

The hot dinner box is a firm<br />

favourite, freshly cooked every<br />

day by in-store chef Jeremy, who<br />

loves to create popular Kiwi<br />

dishes for customers to enjoy.<br />

There are two meal choices available<br />

Tuesday to Saturday, while<br />

on Mondays there is always a<br />

flavoursome curry on offer and,<br />

of course, a mouth-watering<br />

roast on Sundays.<br />

The hot dinner box is served<br />

daily from the bain-marie in<br />

the foyer from 4.30pm and runs<br />

until 7pm unless sold out prior.<br />

They are great value for money<br />

and customers can purchase<br />

these generous-sized meals while<br />

they are in store or order online<br />

at nwfoodtogo.co.nz for a quick<br />

and easy ‘click and collect’ option.<br />

Mealeze is also a very popular<br />

choice with customers, made<br />

fresh to order for collection<br />

from the store after 1pm on<br />

Wednesdays and Fridays. Tasty<br />

and nutritious, these wholesome<br />

QUICK AND EASY: One of New World Northwood’s hot<br />

dinner boxes which can be ordered online and collected<br />

in store.<br />

meals are ideal for anyone<br />

who is time-poor, cooking for<br />

one, recovering from illness or<br />

perhaps just finding it difficult<br />

to cook for themselves every<br />

night.<br />

They are also a great option for<br />

elderly customers, who love the<br />

old favourites such as lamb’s fry<br />

and bacon.<br />

Served in microwavable trays,<br />

there are four choices every<br />

week, always including a vegetarian<br />

meal and a roast option. And,<br />

because the meals are made fresh<br />

to order by the in-store chef,<br />

they can be kept in the fridge for<br />

eating over the next few days, or<br />

frozen for future use.<br />

All hot dinner box and<br />

mealeze meals include fresh<br />

seasonal vegetables or salad, and<br />

a potato or rice accompaniment.<br />

Linwood charities benefit from uni fundraiser<br />

MORE THAN 1000 packs of<br />

sanitary products have been<br />

donated to two charities in<br />

Linwood who support victims of<br />

violence and sexual harm.<br />

Canterbury University<br />

students are fighting the<br />

country’s period poverty crisis<br />

by donating sanitary products<br />

to Te Puna Oranga and Aviva<br />

Families, raising $1000 in the<br />

process.<br />

In the first week of fundraising,<br />

the students have collected<br />

more than 1000 packs of sanitary<br />

products, which have been<br />

donated to the Linwood-based<br />

charities.<br />

Students Romy Gellen, Serena<br />

Cooper, Caitlin Baker, Olivia<br />

Dobbs and Charlotte Hawkins<br />

have been inspired by their<br />

media and social change course<br />

project.<br />

As part of the project, the<br />

students have analysed a New<br />

Zealand-made short film from<br />

Stuff’s Someday Stories series<br />

named Super Special.<br />

“When we saw the film about<br />

period poverty right here in<br />

Aotearoa, we were upset to<br />

find it was a reality for so many<br />

young people,” said Gellen.<br />

“The group project made us<br />

really passionate and drove us to<br />

actually do something to combat<br />

the issue.”<br />

Baker said they have chosen Te<br />

Puna Oranga and Aviva Families<br />

because they want to support<br />

local organisations.<br />

A 2019 study showed that<br />

“12.5 per cent of students who<br />

had had their first period<br />

missed out on menstrual items<br />

due to cost, and that 7.5 per<br />

cent had missed school because<br />

they couldn’t access menstrual<br />

products.”<br />

In some lower socio-economic<br />

areas, period poverty was as high<br />

as 20 per cent, she said.<br />

Course lecturer Dr Maja<br />

Romy Gellen,<br />

Olivia Dobbs,<br />

Charlotte<br />

Hawkins,<br />

Caitlin Baker<br />

and Serena<br />

Cooper have<br />

launched a<br />

fundraising<br />

initiative to<br />

combat period<br />

poverty in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Zonjić said period poverty is<br />

a fact of life for many people<br />

in Aotearoa New Zealand and<br />

is compounded by the social<br />

stigma surrounding menstruation.<br />

“To see my students get<br />

inspired by their final group project<br />

to tackle this critical issue<br />

and start such an important initiative<br />

is incredibly humbling,”<br />

she said.<br />

“I am very proud of them and<br />

I hope their actions encourage<br />

others to positively contribute to<br />

their communities.”<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

Every Day is Open Day<br />

Once again, the New Zealand educational curriculum is<br />

in the firing line – and it is perhaps hard to argue that it<br />

shouldn’t be.* On the all-important international stage, the<br />

latest data from PISA, the Programme for International<br />

Student Assessment, indicates our Kiwi kids are on the<br />

slide. The downward trend in results over the last decade<br />

shows a lost equivalent of three to six terms of schooling in<br />

the key subjects of Reading, Maths and Science.<br />

This is despite a 32% increase in per-child spending since<br />

2001 and, in Christchurch at least, the construction of<br />

purpose-built modern learning environments deliberately<br />

designed to foster the national curriculum’s child-centred<br />

orthodoxy.<br />

Of course, every child should be at the heart of their own<br />

learning. How could they now be! But let’s not throw the<br />

baby out with the bathwater. A child’s education should be<br />

a balance of subject knowledge; essential skills; teaching<br />

programmes developed to suit their demonstrated<br />

knowledge, understanding and progress; and assessment<br />

that offers you, your child and their teachers, honesty and<br />

evidence of this progress.<br />

All parents, teachers and coaches know that children learn<br />

best when they are interested in what they are learning.<br />

Making subject knowledge and skills<br />

interesting is the ongoing and exciting<br />

challenge for all of us who educate and<br />

motivate our children.<br />

Located in the heart of our city, St<br />

Michael’s has been educating and<br />

nurturing the children of Christchurch<br />

for 169 years. For our young pupils<br />

have limitless potential to lead exciting<br />

and generous lives, and we have the<br />

responsibility to educate and inspire<br />

them, to encourage every child to flourish<br />

in mind, body and spirit.<br />

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls and<br />

boys in Years 1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation<br />

for secondary school, a foundation for a<br />

fine life. For at the heart of St Michael’s<br />

are the essential values of Christian faith<br />

and good citizenship: respect, integrity, community, faith,<br />

hope and love.<br />

An independent school education at the primary level is<br />

a great gift. Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20<br />

pupils, ensuring your child is an individual, well known by<br />

staff and fellow pupils alike.<br />

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are<br />

assured. This academic rigour then underpins our wider<br />

curriculums in History, Geography, Science and Spanish.<br />

IT literacy is taught, not assumed, and computer use is<br />

measured. We like teaching and talking to our pupils!<br />

A prep education offers balance. St Michael’s cultural<br />

and sports’ programmes further develop your child’s<br />

foundation, as creativity and problem-solving come in<br />

many forms. Specialist art and music classes are enjoyed<br />

weekly. We have three choirs, and most pupils participate<br />

in instrumental or speech & drama lessons with our ten<br />

itinerant staff.<br />

Nestled on the banks of the Avon, opposite the Riverside<br />

Farmers’ Market, our extended campus is spectacular: the<br />

Art Gallery, Museum, Tūranga – the<br />

central library, and Hagley Park are<br />

just minutes away.<br />

Many of our parents now work in<br />

the thriving city centre or Lincoln<br />

and Riccarton Road hubs, but they<br />

live city-wide. They comment on the<br />

comfort of knowing their children are<br />

in school nearby and the benefits of<br />

popping over for an hour to catch a<br />

performance or watch a race. With the<br />

central exchange only a block away,<br />

senior children arrive by bus from all<br />

corners of the city.<br />

You and your child are warmly<br />

welcome to discover our purposeful,<br />

wholehearted and inclusive prep<br />

school. Our next Open Day is<br />

coming up, on Tuesday 3 November. Pop in during<br />

the day between 8.30am – 4.00pm for a tour, and to<br />
