the east,

youth –

priorities

for board

• By Samantha Mythen

ENVIRONMENT and youth –

these are the top priorities for

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board in the coming

months.

This includes a focus on

continued greening of the east

and contributing to a ball in

Linwood for youth who missed

out on major events last year.

But its number one priority for

the beginning of 2021 is finding a

deputy chair.

“We are looking for someone

who has the time and drive

to take this position on,” said

chairwoman Alexandra Davids.

The search for a full board

comes after Davids survived a

leadership coup late last year

by five fellow board members

representing themselves as the

Labour-aligned People’s Choice.

Davids was first elected to

the board in 2013 and since

April 2019, she had worked as

chairwoman. This was after the

resignation of Sally Buck, one of

Christchurch’s longest-serving

elected members. • Turn to page 5

Defibrillators gifted to housing complexes

SAFETY: (From left to right) – Charlotte Shaw and Heather McGowan of ASB, OCHT’s

James Hadlee and Michelle Ormsby-Brett and Alice Earnshaw-Morris of St John, at the

handover of the defibrillators.

TWO COMMUNITY housing

complexes have been gifted

automated external defibrillators

in a bid to reduce the number of

deaths from cardiac arrest.

The life-saving devices were

presented to the Ōtautahi Community

Housing Trust by ASB

and St John.

The St John Christchurch area

committee has donated outdoor

cabinets for the AEDs, which

will be installed at Reg Stillwell

Place in North Brighton and

and Bridgewater Courts, South

Brighton, community housing

complexes.

The area committee has previously

placed four AEDs and

cabinets in OCHT communities.

Ōtautahi Community Housing

Trust said it was thrilled to be

able to house the lifesaving devices,

which will be available for

the surrounding communities.

“There are fewer AEDS in East

Christchurch than many other

parts of the city, and the donations

are a fantastic addition,"

OCHT tenancy relations manager

James Hadlee said.

“There have been occasions

when tenants have performed

CPR to save lives. Last year's

OCHT Housing Heroes Award

was won by a Pickering Courts

(St Albans) resident who responded

to a neighbour's calls

for help.

“He heard his neighbour

upstairs yelling for help and

when he arrived, he found him

on the ground looking blue with

no pulse. He started CPR and

continued compressions until

paramedics arrived.’’

Findings from St John's out

of hospital cardiac arrest report,

released in March last year,

reveal that five people a day are

treated by ambulance officers for

a cardiac arrest.

People in low income and rural

areas are not only twice as likely

to suffer a cardiac arrest but have

considerably fewer public AEDs

available.

Compared to Europeans,

Pacific Island and Māori

communities have a

disproportionally higher

incidence of out of hospital

cardiac arrest associated with

risk factors such as deprivation, a

St John spokesman said.

“Studies by St John have

revealed that every minute that

goes by without CPR or defibrillation

reduces the chance of

survival by 10-15 per cent, with

only about 13 per cent surviving

a cardiac arrest.

“We know that this survival

rate can be doubled by people

taking three easy steps; calling

111 for an ambulance, starting

CPR immediately and using the

nearest AED,’’ St John clinical

adviser – Hauora Māori Michelle

Brett said.

“Having an AED accessible in

a community housing complex

where many people frequent,

means lives can be saved.’’

ASB head of community and

sponsorship Mark Graham said

they have been supporting St

John with their mission to get

more AED's into communities.

“We have AEDs in all of our

branches and have had to use

them a number of times, so we

know how critical they can be

in an emergency when every

minute counts. Having this

AED will hopefully make a big

difference when it's needed

most.’’ – NZ Herald

Former police officer continues to keep

SAFETY: Canterbury Neighbourhood Support manager and

former police officer, Murray McGusty, has responded to

some of the city’s most devastating disasters in the last two

decades.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Bea Gooding

SUPPORTING communities

through Covid-19 isn’t Murray

McGusty’s first rodeo, and it

most certainly won’t be his last.

The former police officer of

23 years became manager of

Canterbury Neighbourhood

Support at the end of 2019, just

as the world was coming to grips

with the pandemic.

Having responded to some

of the city’s most significant

disasters – two earthquakes, the

Port Hills fires, and the mosque

attacks – he brought a wealth of

experience to the table.

The tumultuous events of

last year were far from what he

expected but he was looking

forward to some normality.

Said McGusty: “Last year was

a bit of a muddle, I’m hoping

this year isn’t going be as such

so I can re-focus on getting back

to the basics, to get out there,

meet new people, and get back

to normality as much as possible.”

CNS establishes and provides

support to neighbourhood

support groups across the city,

making communities safer

through crime prevention work,

emergency preparedness and

well-being.

Being a part of the non-profit

trust ensures residents are looking

out for their neighbours,

who work together to report

suspicious behaviour, and therefore

reducing crime.

If residents are familiar with

their neighbours, resources can

be spread more quickly during

times of great need.

“I do believe communities

that are connected and work

together are stronger and more

able to deal with what comes

along, whether it’s an earthquake

or a flood,” said McGusty.

It was rewarding to witness

others working hard to improve

their neighbourhood, he said.

He recalled a moment when

residents saved a person’s life,

thanks to the quick actions of

fellow neighbours.

“The people who noticed that

their neighbour’s blinds were

not open one morning found

the occupant collapsed inside

and called emergency services.

The occupant had suffered a

brain aneurysm.

“The occupant is alive and

well thanks to the actions of her

neighbours.”

Just before Christmas, he

heard a story of an individual

who wanted nothing to do with

the neighbourhood support

group on his street.

But after an incident involving

police, it was now a different

story.

“One day when he was out,

neighbours noticed someone in

his home. They called the police

and a burglar was apprehended.

“He now belongs to the street

group,” he said.

Working with neighbourhood

support as a former police

officer worked to his advantage,

having his foot in both

doors regarding contacts,

and knowledge from past

experiences.

McGusty’s police journey

began two decades ago when he

became an officer in Christchurch,

where he remained

throughout his tenure, which

included front line duties and

enquiries.

In his last five years with the

police, he worked extensively

with Phillipstown Neighbourhood

Policing team on crime

prevention before he became the

CNS manager in 2019.

It was something he always

wanted to do, he said, making

communities safer through the

police and various groups.

Although he was not born in

Christchurch, he has lived here

for a “long time,” working in the

city for all of his police career.

communities safe

Over time some of the

messaging had mostly

remained the same – cars

and houses were still getting

broken into as they were not

secure and valuables were in

clear view through windows.

But a major difference today

was the dangers of the internet,

which proved to be a challenge.

“Fraud, scams – that’s really

taken off as it’s all electronic

now, and they are getting

clever,” McGusty said.

The manager’s first year

at CNS has been rocky, to

year. • From page 1

say the least. Like “all nonprofits,”

they were facing

financial challenges caused by

Covid-19.

But communities they support,

especially some elderly

people, were still isolated and

struggling.

“There’s still a reluctance,

with older people it’s taken

a while. They’re still very

cautious about mingling and

meeting new people.”

When McGusty was not

tramping or dabbling in a bit

of horticulture, he was thinking

ahead.

His next steps included

organising a crime prevention

study, which examined

different communities

and whether they had

neighbourhood support

groups or not, and if this

affected crime rates.

“There isn’t much crime

going on in an area with

really strong neighbourhood

support, but there will be

other areas with no support

groups, so I just wanted to do

a comparison.”

GARDEN AWARDS

Judging for the city council’s

Community Pride Garden Awards

2021 in the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

area has now started. The awards

acknowledge those who have

contributed to maintaining the

Garden City image of Christchurch

by beautifying their streets and

gardens. No application is required,

as judges view gardens from the

street in participating community

board areas. Gardens can be

residential or commercial, with

judging finishing on February 7,

followed by the presentation of

certificates at award ceremonies

The People’s Choice members Jake

McLellan, Yani Johanson, Michelle

Lomax, Jackie Simons and Sunita

Gautam faced public backlash for

their calls that Davids step down.

They eventually revoked their plans.

Once a new deputy chair is found,

focus will turn to the board’s longterm

plan and setting priorities for

the rest of the year.

“There will be a continued focus on

greening of the east. We have been

pooling together plans from around

the area,” she said.

“We will be providing more seating

as quick wins while we continue to

look at the bigger picture of more

in March and April. Judging for

Christchurch Street and Gardens

Awards will take place at the same

time until February 17.

INTERSECTION UPGRADE

Work to improve safety at the

Marshland, Lower Styx and Hawkins

Rds intersection will start this

week. Upgrades include widening

the bridge over Styx River, the

extension of Canal Reserve Drain

culvert, installation of traffic signals

and street lights, road widening

and landscaping. Construction is

expected to be completed by March

next year and will be carried out in

stages.

Looking to make tangible changes

native planting in the future.”

The board will be contributing

to a climate change workshop on

February 24.

“This will help us to decide on

where we can best put our efforts to

help make some positive tangible

change,” she said.

An exciting event for young

people based in the Linwood and

Ferrymead area is planned for March.

The board has partnered with Youth

and Cultural Development and the

Eastgate Mall to host the Ball in the

Mall high school event.

The board is assisting with some

of the financing and staffing of the

event.

christchurch School of Music

The challenges we have all faced in 2020

have proved to us at the Christchurch School

of Music, just how important music is to

our well-being, a sense of purpose and an

opportunity to communicate and collaborate

with others to create something very special.

It was wonderful for us to see the

excitement and enthusiasm of our students

on the first day back at rehearsals as soon

as we came out of Level 2. “ I didn’t realise

how much I loved orchestra until we went

into lockdown and I missed it so much”

Comments like this were very common

on the first day back. We may have had to

sanitise our hands, sit socially distanced

from our friends in the ensemble, spray our

chairs and stands between groups but it was

all worth it just to have the chance to make

music again.

The Christchurch School of Music is

a family-oriented community aimed at

providing quality music education in

and around Christchurch. We believe

passionately in the power of music to

promote well-being and joy in people’s

lives and we constantly strive to ensure our

kaupapa meets the needs of all the students

in our care.

On a Saturday morning the whole family

can find something to suit. Preschool and

junior school children can start their musical

journey by joining in our “Take Off with

Music” classes while older children and

adults may opt for lessons on a specific

instrument (including voice). Those who

already play are welcome to join in one

of the great ensembles which all take part

in regular concerts. Our students enjoy

ensembles in a wide range of genres from

classical through to choral, jazz, rock and

world music.

Age is no limit - our Late Starters

programme provides the opportunity for

adults to learn an instrument and join an

ensemble with other like-minded adults.

If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also

offers a range of weekday opportunities

for learning and playing music and, if

affordability is an issue, CSM may be able to

offer a discount through funding provided

by the Rata Foundation and CERT.

Come and join us and start on a musical

journey that will bring joy for a lifetime.

Failed promises led to prolonged dispute

The New Brighton

Museum has a rich history

spanning more than 100

years. Peggy Butterfield

writes monthly about the

historical display at the

heritage museum

CHARLOTTE Knight and

her husband, John, arrived at

Lyttelton on the Accrington in

1863.

By the 1880s the family was

eking out a living as dairy farmers

at Aranui between Bexley

and Breezes Rds.

The land was cheap, infertile

and apt to be waterlogged in

winter and a desert in summer.

Charlotte gave birth to 24

children, although several died,

the rest thrived.

The Knights bought shares

in and ceded land to the New

Brighton Tramway Company.

The company built the first

bridge at Seaview Rd and in 1887

started a horse-drawn tram service

from the city to the seaside.

However, a dispute arose

because the tramway company

failed to build a promised roadway

alongside the track, and

keep the drains free.

Charlotte arose to fight the

tramway. She got some of her

sons to smash the gates which

the company had built at either

end of its property and locked at

night.

Her many children walked

slowly on the tracks to hinder the

tram’s progress, Charlotte would

appear at night armed with gorse

sticks and the outside passengers

would dive for cover.

Even a pitchfork was used on

one occasion.

Of course, this behaviour

ended in many appearances

in the Magistrates Court, with

newspapers reporting the whole

dispute in full.

The public’s sympathy went

with Charlotte. The newspapers

described Charlotte as of “imposing

stature and formidable

proportions … with a deerstalker

hat … and Amazonian tread.”

Charlotte could not afford the

fines imposed upon her, and the

court bailiff seized her horse and

cart, with Charlotte and a good

number of children in the cart.

She refused to move.

Consequently, the horse was

taken out, and the cart drawn

around Oxford Tce in the middle

of the day with her sitting in it.

Charlotte was subjected to

being made the laughing stock

of hundreds of people who witnessed

the scene.

Charlotte died in 1907, a

fighter to the end.

This story appears in full in

Richard Greenaway’s delightful

book Unsung Heroines. The book

is available to read in the New

Brighton Museum Library.

Papanui High School - Preparing

students for their future

“Our aim is simple... to provide the best

education possible for every student.

Giving students the opportunity to study

from an innovative and broad curriculum

is critical to providing each student a

pathway that meets their individual

needs. We allow for a greater range and

flexibility in subject choice including

the utilization of the secondary/

tertiary interface. This reinforces

the philosophy underpinning

personalised learning and

is strongly supported

by understanding our

students’ interests,

passions, talents,

and ultimately their

career aspirations.

We understand

that for effective

learning to take

place, it has to

be implemented

in such a way that

students will be highly

engaged. The school

does this in a ‘forward

thinking’ way by creating learning

environments that allow our students

to see value in what they do and

achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what we

represent and we demonstrate this by

having young adults leave our school

as confident learners who have gained

the appropriate qualifications and social

skills to become valued contributing

members of society.

All that we do here is reinforced by

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and

high expectations – what we call “Our

Full service Model”. The school highly

values the connectedness of curricular

and co-curricular learning.

We have a philosophical

understanding that the

holistic development

of the student is

critical to their

individual success.

The school has

worked hard

to consolidate

recent initiatives to

ensure sustained and

continuous improvement.

Hornby High School community, and a

special welcome to those of you who

are new to our community.

Welcome to Hornby High School where

our vision is to be a ‘centre of creative

excellence he puna auaha’. That means

we endeavour to foster creativity in

everything we do: sports and science,

governance and teaching. To do that we

seek to equip students with the tools

they need to be creative, critical thinkers.

Our school whakatauki says:

Mā te huruhuru, ka rere te manu

‘Feathers enable the bird to fly’

Optimism is one of those qualities

that some have more than others. As

educators we always begin each year

with that sense of optimism about

what the year, the students, and the

community, will bring. For us that

optimism is grounded in what we have

experienced the year before, and our

plans for the year to come which reflect

those things that we can control.

For Hornby High School that sense of

optimism is well founded. Despite the

global events of 2020 we have pushed

for and experienced student success

as we have evolved our curriculum and

teacher practice to match the beautiful

buildings and facilities that we now use.

The new year will see us with

significantly improved sporting facilities

which are bound to be well used on

the back of the wonderful sporting

successes our students and their teams

achieved in 2020. Our main playing

fields will benefit from the newly

installed underground irrigation and the

resurfacing, and our all weather sports

turf will support quality practice and

performance for all ages.

And then there is the ongoing focus on

cultural and academic achievement

which continues to see students take

their place amongst the best. Join us in

our extraordinary journey.

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.
