bus lane

project

RESIDENTS ARE being asked to

share their ideas on how to make

Halswell Rd a better place for bus

users.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency has a $25 million budget

to provide bus lanes along the

2.5km section of the road between

Curletts and Hoon Hay Rds, past

Aidanfield to Dunbars Rd.

It is an area of the city that has

experienced rapid residential

growth in recent years with new

subdivisions opening, resulting in

increased congestion.

NZTA director of regional

relationships Jim Harland

said Halswell Rd is a key

public transport corridor that

experiences significant travel

delays during peak periods.

“We are wanting to achieve

faster and more reliable travel

times for buses along Halswell Rd.

“The project aims to improve

safety, comfort and the

convenience of getting to and

using bus stops. We want to make

bus stops accessible to all users

and make bus travel a popular

choice for people.

Community garden to stay for now

• By Bea Gooding

A GARDEN that has been an

integral part of Riccarton for

more than seven years is set to

remain in the community for

now.

The future of the Riccarton

West Community Garden was

stuck in limbo after its closure in

September when the lease for the

land came to an end.

But it has since re-opened on

Peverel St after a compromise

was struck with landowner,

Kāinga Ora, which will allow the

garden to continue flourishing

for the next two years.

The Christchurch South

Community Gardens Trust now

manages the space, which has

been downsized to make way

for new public housing due to be

built soon.

Said trust manager Christine

Blance: “It is very good news

for local Riccarton residents as

the community gardens and

pantry contribute significantly

In July next year, the Riccarton

West Community Garden Trust

will take over the lease once it

has been established.

Said Blance: “Complete

demolition was the only other alternative.

The current site allows

for the Riccarton Community

Gardens Development Group to

have some breathing space while

they form a charitable trust and

identify another suitable, permanent

site.”

The garden was established

in 2013 when members of the

Student Volunteer Army, the

Riccarton West Neighbourhood

Policing Team, and residents

came together to dig and prepare

the land for planting.

Blance said there is no

confirmation on a new location,

which will required access to

utilities, such as power and

water, and good street access.

land to offer for a long-term

Term 4 a

celebration

of student

achievement

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa

atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai haere mai ki Te Kura

Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the Hornby High

School community.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love term 4. It is the time

when we celebrate so much achievement, so much creativity,

from our students.

It began several weeks ago. Our electric vehicle entry in the

Evolocity Challenge took three prizes – first in the speed

section, second in the endurance, and third in the gymkhana.

We had two student entries in the Ara-sponsored ‘Schoolshorts’

short film competition. The documentary Waterloo Road won

best documentary, and the lead female actor in another won

Best Actor Female. The weekend also saw us host the Hornby

Lions Floral show with some amazing creative entries from new

entrant to Year 8 students from across our cluster.

Then we celebrated our academic, cultural, and sporting,

achievement with our senior prizegiving, and you can see lots

of photos of our wonderful prize winners elsewhere on this

page. In 2016 I began my own tradition of shouting a morning

tea for any students who gain their NCEA with an Excellence

endorsement before they leave to sit their exams. The number

of students I take out has increased each year, with 2020

featuring the greatest number since I began the tradition. I

know such numbers can’t go on increasing forever. The upward

trajectory is however a great cause for celebration.

These things all speak to the increasing levels of achievement

that our students continue to produce. Each student is

encouraged to find her or his niche, whether it be in technology

or history, music or PE, whatever it is that inspires them. As

Sir Ken Robinson described it in his book of the same name,

we want each student to find their “Element”. I’ll leave you to

enjoy the photos that speak volumes for our student pride and

achievement.

Oaklands gala starts Halswell

Christmas celebrations

OAKLANDS Te Kura o Ōwaka’s

annual gala will begin a series of

activities to celebrate Halswell

and replace regular celebrations

cancelled due to Covid-19.

The school’s twilight gala will

be held on December 11 from

5pm.

The following day is celebrate

Halswell family fun day. Held at

the Te Hapua Halswell Centre,

the event will run from 10am to

3pm and include crafts, games,

a Christmas story time, robots,

a photobooth, and virtual reality

technology for people to try.

Oaklands Te Kura o Ōwaka’s

parent teacher association organises

its annual gala.

PTA member Karen White

said the year had been a challenging

one for many people

and bringing the community

together to connect and have fun

was a focus of the gala. It would

be a chance for pupils to perform

songs and dances for their

families, and for people to get

something to eat and catch up

with each other.

Oaklands Te Kura o Ōwaka

principal Margaret Trotter said

she was proud this year’s school

gala was part of a series of activities

for locals to enjoy in the

lead-up to Christmas.

“We love seeing our community

at the gala and welcome

everyone to come and join in the

fun.”

Trotter said the gala would be

a chance for people to tour the

school and see changes from its

major redevelopment.

The redevelopment included

a number of new learning and

administration spaces and the

upgrade of original red brick

blocks. The redevelopment

would be completed by early

2021, with the school’s hall getting

an upgrade and the addition

of a new central courtyard and

sports courts, she said.

spokesperson Kate Cleverly said

The Celebrate Halswell

celebrate the suburb and its

residents.

Summer

pool hours

extended

A $22,000 funding boost will

allow Halswell’s Te Hāpua

summer pool to remain open for

longer on weekdays.

The extra funding was approved

by the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board,

which means from next month,

the pool can open at 9.30am daily,

instead of 11.30am.

It also enables them to close at

8pm close Fridays, rather than

7pm.

The pool will be open to

concession-card holders for lane

swimming on Tuesdays and Fridays,

from 6.30am to 9.30am.

Board Chairperson Mike Mora

said that with both the main pool

and the wave pool at the Pioneer

Recreation and Sports Centre

out of action because of essential

maintenance, there is likely to

be more people flocking to Te

Hāpua.

“We need to remain agile in

meeting local needs and the extra

funding is an important investment

in providing recreational

facilities to a wider community,”

said Mora.

The $22,090 Discretionary

Response Fund grant will cover

the extra operational costs of the

extended hours from December 7.

Leaders in Learning

The PETER BRYANT MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

…is awarded to the Dux of the school E Wen Wong

This is an annual award, established by the Board of

Trustees, to acknowledge the outstanding contribution

to Burnside High School of the late Dr Peter Bryant, in

his role as the Chairperson of the Board.

E Wen’s ability was summed up by her teacher at

Intermediate who stated that, “This student is an

outstanding example of resilience, responsibility,

positivity and respectfulness”. They went on to

say in her mid-year report “To complete the year in

much style, this student merely needs to sustain her

endeavour and savour the good things that come her

way”

It would seem that good things came the way of this

student in the form of a Burnside High School Entrance

test where scores of 100% where achieved in both

English and Mathematics, along with 98% in Reasoning.

From that point on, E Wen has thrown herself into

every facet of school life with success across the

board, but also developing real passions

with her involvement in music where

she is a Lead Oboist in the school

orchestra, writing, where she has won

several awards including the 1st and

2nd she gained for two poems in the

2019 Guernsey International Poetry

Competition and she was this year’s

winner of the Secondary Schools

National Poetry Award.

Equally impressive was her Zonta Young

Women in Public Affairs Award earlier

this year where she was one of just 10

International Award Winners across 58

countries.

Her academic record is outstanding and the 65 NCEA

credits she has earned this year are exclusively at

Excellence level she is entered for no less than seven

Scholarship exams on top of her other five subjects.

At this year’s prizegiving, we saw her collect awards

for First Place in English, Geography

and Mathematics with Statistics and

Excellence Awards for History and

Chemistry and the Suzanne Hay Cup

for Creative Writing and a Noeline Clark

Scholarship for General Excellence. She

has been offered various substantial

scholarships by competing Universities

to entice her their way, but has settled

on the University of Canterbury where

she will study Law and Science and

perhaps work for the UN in the future.

Her teachers this year have described

her as “massively driven” and an

“absolute dynamo” to have in the classroom. We are

positive that whatever E Wen chooses to do, it will be

with great success.

What an absolute honour and a privilege it has been to

have this young woman in our school community for

the past 5 years.

Proxime Accessit

Aimee Wang

When Aimee came to Burnside High

School in Year 10, her prior academic

record boasted grades of “A” across

every subject for the previous three

academic years.

As her time at Burnside High School

progressed, Aimee has been described

by her Physics teacher as an “eminently

capable student who is quick to pick

up ideas” and that “she adds a lot to

the classroom environment with her

diligence and focus”. This year her

Cambridge Pure Mathematics teacher

reports that “she has that much admired ability to find

the most elegant solutions to the hardest problems”.

She is also described as generous and genuine in her

approach to learning and is massively

willing to use her knowledge to help

others in a friendly and unassuming

manner. She is described as considerate,

inclusive and friendly by her classmates

and is highly respected by all of her

teachers.

Whilst quiet on the surface, it would

seem there is a busy, enquiring and

engaging mind underneath that exterior.

At Burnside High School, it is no mean

feat to be a high profile academic, but

she takes her place easily amongst the

academic heavyweights. There are plans

to study at Auckland University next year, however this

student could well be one of the next crop of Burnside

High School students to take up an offer from one

of the prestigious United Kingdom or United States

Universities and she is currently investigating options in

this direction.

Her Cambridge and NCEA results are impressive

reading. In NCEA, she has amassed 249 credits at

Excellence Level, with not many at lower grades and

she enters her exams with 43 Excellence credits at

level three already in the bag. She also will tackle

Scholarship examinations in her preferred two subjects

this year – Economics and Calculus.

Aimee earned first place in Economics, Cambridge

Calculus and Cambridge Statistics, and excellence in

Chemistry, English and Physics.

We wish Aimee well as she determines the pathway on

her very impressive and exciting future as she looks to

embark on a career where she tells me she hopes to

reduce poverty for people in the world.

Emica Taylor

Emica has been a member

herself as a versatile performer

across genres and at the very

highest level. As a flautist she

has been a section leader

for the Burnside Orchestra

and Symphonic Band, with whom this year she

showed truly exceptional leadership qualities in

her role as student conductor, helping the band

win the “Best Concert Band” at the Christchurch

Wind Festival. She has been involved in chamber

music for five years, the highlight being selected

as a national finalist in 2019. Emica has been

a member of the Big Band saxophone section

for four years, including one year as lead alto,

winning countless awards along the way. She

is a member of the UC Christchurch Youth

Orchestra and has been selected many times for

the NZSSSO. Despite her formidable talent she

undertakes all this with a sense of fun, service

and humility for which she is respected equally

by her peers and the staff and we look forward to

following her progress as she prepares to move

to Wellington to study flute at the NZ School of

Music.

The Trusts Act 2019 comes

into effect on 30th January

2021. The 18 month delay

from when the Act was passed

to allow time for settlors,

trustees and advisors to

familiarise themselves with the

changes and requirements and

review their trust is nearly up.

If you have not already started

your review then put it on your

reading list for this summer.

While there are many new

living provisions in the new Act,

life the main ones that will be all. It is time to now locate and

gather these deeds and records.

sudoku - easy sudoku - MedIuM

of interest to trustees are the

setting out of the mandatory

and default duties of trustees,

the core documents to be

held by trustees and the

information that is required to

be provided to beneficiaries.

Trustees are required to know

the terms of the trust and act

honestly and in good faith in

accordance with the terms

and to be actively involved

with the management of the

trust. While this was always

expected, it was not set out in

the legislation before and so

possibly not well understood

by people when they agreed to

become a trustee on a trust.

All trustees must hold

copies of the core trust

documents, the trust deed

and any variations made to

the trust deed, and at least

one trustee must hold all the

trust documents, including

records of assets, minutes

and financial records. For

some existing trusts those

documents might be missing,

spread across several lawyers

and accountants, or not exist at

The new Act includes a

presumption that basic trust

information (the fact that they

are a beneficiary and who the

trustees are) must be made

available to every beneficiary.

Beneficiaries are also to be

made aware that they are

able to request additional

trust information. This may

possibly pose the biggest

challenge for many settlors

and trustees. However this

presumption as to the supply

of information is qualified by

certain considerations that

trustees may take account of

in deciding what, if any, information to

provide.

Many family trusts were set up with a

wide class of beneficiaries including

the nieces and nephews and partners of

beneficiaries in addition to the settlors

and their children and grandchildren. It

may never have been intended that most

of these beneficiaries would ever receive

a benefit under the trust but they were

soLutIons on Page 64

included as possible recipients. If your

trust deed allows a change to beneficiaries

this should be included in your review

now.

specialist knowledge available to provide

you with legal advice about your trust.

Ali McGregor has rolled her passions for Italy

and lemons into her business, Ali’s Lemons. Her

love for creating delectable recipes of lemon based

desserts, liquor, and curds have patrons around the

country enjoying her products.

A Cantabrian local, Ali has a diversified

background, which enhances her love for being in

the kitchen and creating lemon masterpieces.

we asked ali about her

background and where her love

for lemons came from?

Growing up on a Wairarapa farm, the kitchen of

Ali’s family home was the hub of the farm and the

home, the place where family, friends, visitors, and

workers all gathered and shared food together.

Meals were prepared from produce grown on the

farm.

Morning and afternoon teas have always been

symbols of country hospitality. On the farm,

an array of freshly made treats along with iced

cakes and biscuits from the twenty-plus regularly

replenished cake tins, welcomed all visitors.

Ali learned how to cook by osmosis: by

watching and helping, and as she became more

accomplished and confident, making the timetested

recipes handed down from generation to

generation. For Ali, food and friendship continue

to be intertwined: preparing delicious food to

share gives great satisfaction. Consequently, she

made a career shift to include teaching food and

nutrition as well as English.

A life-long fascination with Italy has grown from

singing Italian opera and enjoying Italian art and

architecture. She learned the language and many

Italian cities including Italy to Venice, Rome,

Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, Le Marche, the Cinque

Terre.

Against this background, the devastating

Christchurch earthquakes of 2011 that forced

many to re-evaluate their lives, were also the

catalyst for Ali to establish Ali’s Lemons. Her range

of products draws on her experiences, and belief

that food sustains not only the body and soul but is

also a celebration of life and love.

Ingredients are everything

Locally sourced ingredients including organic,

Yen Ben lemons are the foundation product which

offers the sharp, tart flavour. Yen Ben are a true

lemon, unlike the much sweeter Meyer lemon

which is the most prolific lemon grown in the

Canterbury region.

Free range eggs are used in the curds and saffron

from Wynyard Estate which uses the international

standard of quality and is premium grade 1.

Green Bee Honeydew is used in both the Lemon

Honeydew Reviver and the Lemon Caramelised

Onion.

how do you spend your down

time?

I love music, particularly classical and opera, has

been a passion all my life. I studied singing at

Victoria University and then moved to Auckland

to study with Dame Sister Mary Leo and then was

a singer and I still love to sing.

I love reading and belong to a book group,

working in my working and travelling.

what is your earliest memory of

lemons ?

Growing up on the farm in the Wairarapa, there

was an enormous lemon tree which grew right

up against my bedroom window and on warm

evenings the delicious perfume of the waxy

blossoms filled my room, perhaps this was the

beginning of my love affair with lemons !

technology

Biotech is improving everyday life without

most Kiwis realising, a new BioTechNZ

research report says.

The landmark BioTechNZ study analysed

the state of biotechnology and its impact and

benefits for the New Zealand economy and

society.

BioTechNZ is a member of the NZTech

Alliance, which brings together 20 technology

associations with more than 1500 member

organisations who employ more than 10

percent of the workforce, who are working to

help create a more prosperous New Zealand

underpinned by technology.

NZTech chief executive Graeme Muller says

the report, due for public release this month,

captures the major impact that biotechnology

is quietly having on all Kiwis.

“Biotechnology is being applied in New

Zealand to reduce waste, create vaccines,

develop healthier food and more efficient

crops,” Muller says.

“One of New Zealand’s largest companies used

biotechnology to develop milk with the A2

protein only, to help people who have trouble

drinking regular cow’s milk.

“Another growing New Zealand success story

is a company that uses biotechnology processes

to extract gold and other precious metals from

electronic waste.

“While Kiwi families are concerned about

the enormous use of petroleum products

for energy, new plastics are coming into the

home, made with corn and other plants, not

petroleum, via a biotechnology processes.

“Biotechnology is also being applied in

more direct ways to environmental cleanup.

A process called bioremediation uses

microorganisms to reduce, eliminate, or

contain contaminants in the soil or other

environments.

“As obesity rates climb to epidemic levels,

biotechnology is helping to create a new

generation of healthier plant-based oils. These

oils are free of the trans fats that can raise

cholesterol and contribute to heart disease.

Soybeans, corn, cotton and canola have

been enhanced to resist insects, herbicides

and drought conditions, allowing farmers to

increase productivity.

“New Zealand scientists have developed grasses

that reduce methane emissions from livestock,

which will help reduce greenhouse gases.

“Tomorrow, biotechnology will bring better

health and treatments for disease that will

produce all kinds of medical products for New

Zealanders.

“There are a growing number of global

opportunities for biotech and New Zealand’s

strengths allow scientists and companies to

identify global niche opportunities, particularly

in the animal sciences, horticulture, marine

and biomedical industries.”

Start a new

Christmas tradition

What could be better than starting some new family traditions this year? Christmas traditions are memories

in the making and help spread a little festive cheer whether with your loved ones or out in the community.

10 great ideas to help make Christmas a magical time of the year

1. Create a Christmas playlist with some of

your favourite carols and songs – play it

loud and every day, if that’s your thing.

Or plan a pre-Christmas sing-along

evening – don’t forget to supply the song

sheet so everyone can join in too.

2. Get into the spirit of Christmas by getting

together with family or friends to help

decorate each other’s houses – turn up

the music, drink the wine and go all out

to deck the halls.

3. Make and send homemade Christmas

cards – there’s nothing more exciting

than getting mail, right? Or how about

writing some generic ones and dropping

them into your nearest retirement

home to brighten up an elderly person’s

Christmas.

4. Buy your family Christmas tee-shirts or

Santa hats to wear on the day and don’t

forget to take a family selfie.

5. Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child, wrap

it with a bow, and deliver to the nearest

community gift tree – check with your

local library and label with age and

gender.

6. Have a yearly family, friends or neighbour

outdoor games night with drinks and

nibbles leading up to the big day – think

Pétanque, hoopla, mini golf, giant chess,

or croquet.

7. Take a leaf out of Iceland’s traditional

‘Jolabokaflod’ or Christmas Book Flood,

and give a book as a gift on Christmas

Eve each year – don’t forget to write

inside the cover who it’s from and the

date.

8. Make a list of must see Christmas movies

to watch a week before Christmas day

and tick off the ones you’ve watched.

Don’t forget the popcorn and hot

chocolate or nibbles and wine.

9. Make and give a handmade ornament

as a gift each year – the lucky receiver’s

Christmas tree will be covered with

beautiful, handmade memories.

10. Make homemade hot chocolate on

Christmas Eve or on Christmas morning

to drink while the presents are being

opened – decorate with whipped cream,

grated chocolate, marshmallows, or

crushed candy canes.

Give a Christmas

gift to remember!

With summer on the way there’s

never been a better excuse to take

a break and head to Hanmer Springs.

Just 90 minutes north of Christchurch,

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and Spa

offers something for everyone - whether

it’s that hard-to-buy-for friend or a well

deserved treat for yourself.

We’ve got packages to suit every

occasion. Relax and unwind in our

22 open-air thermal pools, enjoy the

adrenalin of Conical Thrill, New Zealand’s

largest aquatic thrill ride, or get totally

pampered at The Spa.

Whether it’s a day-trip or a longer stay,

give the gift of fun and relaxation at

Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and

Deck the halls

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a decoration or two around the home.

Whether its outdoor lights with a waving Santa or

just draping tinsel across your mantelpiece, there are

many ways to celebrate the festive season in your home.

Go natural

Driftwood painted white with LED lights wrapped

around, or pine cones with a touch of silver spray

paint, make beautiful natural additions to the home

at this time of year. If you have a tree branch around

the home, why not cut it up into discs and spray paint

white stars and reindeer on the disc. Drill a hole in the

top and thread some gardeners string through the hole

and you have an instant decoration to hang on the tree

or somewhere around the home. Cover polystyrene

balls in ripped linen, hessian and cotton strips. These

can either be hung up or a number placed in a bowl on

the table.

Tinsel town

Many love the glitter and sparkle that tinsel brings

but how about using it in different ways. A threetiered

cake plate with tinsel laid on each plate with

baubles then placed on top, can look really impressive

as a centrepiece for the table. Make your own wreath

by wrapping tinsel around and around a polystyrene

circle. Hang just as it is, or hot glue gun baubles on to

create extra wow.

Table setting

Sometimes the simplest decorations on the table

can look the most stunning. A beautiful napkin rolled

up with a piece of red and white ribbon, or rosemary

wreath looks amazing. Why not place a hessian runner

down the middle of the table and add greenery and

candles in jars on top to create a wonderful centrepiece.

If you have a children’s eating table, why not put a

long piece of brown paper as a table cloth. Draw large

circles where the plates can go and write Christmas

questions beside each plate outline. A little bottle with

a red and white paper straw is great too. Put a jar of

red and green crayons on the table. When the kids are

finished their dinner, they can play noughts and crosses

or hangman or just draw pictures.

If you’re looking for ideas why not check out

Pinterest. Here you will find every style and every

technique to make sure your home looks like a

Christmas wonderland this festive season.

Deluxe Gift Vouchers can be

Rotary recognises community heroes

DEDICATED: City council

community recreation

adviser Lisa Gregory with her

Vocational Excellence Award.

LISA Gregory’s dedication

to ensuring her community

stays connected has been

recognised.

For more than 25 years, the

Rotary Club of Bishopdale-

Burnside has been awarding

people who go above and

beyond for their community

at its annual Community

Service Awards.

The awards celebrate the

achievements of businesses

and individuals in the city’s

northwest.

They were held at the

Elms Hotel on November

16. The accolades handed

out included a Vocational

Excellence Award and a

Small Business Award.

Gregory, who is a city

council community

recreation adviser, was

recognised for her dedication

to the Bishopdale community

with the Vocational

Excellence Award.

It is presented to a person

who has contributed

significantly over a period of

time to a specific vocation to

a high standard of excellence.

Based at the Fendalton

Service Centre, one of

Gregory’s responsibilities

for the past five years has

been to organise the now

established annual Celebrate

Bishopdale event, which last

year attracted more than

2000 visitors.

Organising the event

is a “huge undertaking”,

which Gregory handled in

a professional and efficient

manner, contributing hugely

to its ongoing success.

The Small Business Award

recognises a business that

has set a high standard of

performance, service quality

and customer satisfaction.

This year the recipient

was Burgess Automotive

– a family-owned business

which has been operating in

the north-west for more than

40 years.

Owners Wayne and Janet

Burgess started their first

automotive business in North

Rd in 1977 before moving

to their present location in

Sturrocks Rd 20 years ago.

They have now been joined

at the business by their son

Jeremy.

From humble beginnings,

they have grown the business

and now have a seven

staff, as well as premises

and equipment which are

the envy of some larger

automotive companies in

Christchurch.

They understand that the

north west is constantly

expanding to keep up to date

with the changing needs.

TOP COMPANY: Janet and

Wayne Burgess, of Burgess

Automotive, with their Small

Business Award.
