‘We need help’ – plea from

residents over youth crime

• By Bea Gooding

NEARLY 2000 people have

signed a petition demanding the

city council takes action over

increased youth offending in

Parklands.

Concerns are mounting over

the prevalence of crimes in the

suburb particularly in the last

six months, ranging between assault

with a knife, selling drugs,

harassment and car break-ins

allegedly carried out by children

aged 10 to 12-years-old.

Parklands resident Grant

Donnell is leading the charge in

a bid to get the city council to

install crime prevention cameras

at hot spots often frequented

by the public.

Affected areas included

Parklands Reserve, Parklands

Community Centre and the car

parks on Mairehau Rd at the

Travis Wetlands walking trails.

City council head of community

support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell

said they were aware of the petition

and some of the behaviour

described.

However, a request for

cameras at these sites had not

been received through a formal

channel.

Police did not respond to

questions by Pegasus Post by the

deadline.

“I started the petition

because every single day

someone is getting broken into,

assaulted, or we have kids selling

drugs to other kids,” said

Donnell.

“We have 10 to 12-year-olds

with knives jacking other kids

for their scooters, an old lady

was hassled outside Fresh

Choice and was knocked to the

ground because these kids were

after her handbag.

“We’re standing up and saying

we need help.”

A woman said on the petition

she was signing it due to

“threats and abuse” her own

children faced by a group of

young girls or teen boys.

“My children get harassed

for food or money and if my

children say no they then get

verbally abused and threatened,”

she said.

CONCERNS:

Donnell

started a

petition in

an effort to

get crime

prevention

cameras

installed in

“There have been times the

group of boys have tried to

steal my children’s bikes for

not giving them any food or

money.”

Visiting Travis Wetlands was

no longer an option for another

resident.

Cancer Society art exhibition

A NEW art exhibition

showcasing the work of the

Cancer Society’s art groups

will open in Linwood on

March 16.

The Art Escape exhibition

at the Eastside Gallery in

the Linwood Community

Arts Centre will offer the

public the opportunity to

view and purchase artwork

created by members of two

Cancer Society art groups.

Course tutor Karen

Greenslade said that the art

groups provide a welcome

respite for those whose lives

have been adversely affected

by cancer.

“The group members

are supported by volunteer

tutors who are fine arts

graduates or qualified

teachers,” Greenslade said.

“Often the group

members have had a desire

to paint in the past and

are now able to put the

difficulties of their illness

aside for a while and

express themselves via their

art,” Greenslade said.

Art group member Ray

Haward received his cancer

diagnosis over a year ago

and has been attending art

classes since soon after that.

“I have always been

interested in art,” Haward

said.

“I have recently drifted

into abstract work and I like

the freedom it gives me.

“The Cancer Society is

the go-to place if you need

any advice, and the people

are very helpful here,”

Haward said.

About 40 artworks by 20

artists, including Haward,

will be on display at the

exhibition, with the artwork

covering a range of different

styles.

The exhibition opening

will be on Tuesday, March

16, from 5.30-6.45pm and

the exhibition will run from

March 17 to April 1, 11am-

5pm, Wednesday through

Saturday.

As well as the art classes,

the Cancer Society also

runs free yoga, meditation

and creative writing

workshops for people

affected by cancer.

upcoming courses,

• From page 1

“I used to walk in Travis Wetlands

regularly until cars were

being broken into, and now I avoid

it like the plague,” she said on the

petition.

Donnell speculated the increased

youth offending was

brought about by the removal

of things to do for children and

teenagers over the years since the

earthquakes.

He said police and community

watch groups have increased their

presence in the area since the petition

was brought to light. He believed

incidents were less frequent

as a result.

“It’s totally made people feel

safer,” he said.

Filsell said the city council was

currently looking at options to

install cameras, other options not

limited to CCTV, and planned to

attend community meetings with

police.

“The cameras are a deterrent at

times, however, are only a part of

any solution and not always appropriate

to all areas,” he said.

“Activities and community

events along with good resources

are always a good idea, local

council staff run several events

and support local groups to deliver

programmes in Parklands.”

Grief on the Run

by Julie Zarifeh

What happens when your life is rocked by unimaginable loss and grief? How do you

survive and how do you keep going?

Julie Zarifeh shares the tragic story of losing her 27-year-old son, Sam, in a whitewater

rafting accident just sixteen days after her 60-year-old husband, Paul, died of pancreatic

cancer.

She describes how she and her surviving son and daughter dealt with this double

whammy and how she embraced the notion of ‘active grieving’. This included a

450-kilometre cycle tour around Sri Lanka, raising money to give disadvantaged Kiwi

children new bikes; trekking the 800-kilometre Camino de Santiago; and running the

New York marathon on behalf of the Mental Health Foundation.

Julie’s account of learning to live with grief, plus her experience as a clinical psychologist,

make this an inspirational and ultimately uplifting read.

Joe Biden - Promises to Keep

‘A ripping good read … Biden is a master storyteller and has stories worth telling.’

President Joe Biden tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his

emergence as Barack Obama’s beloved, influential vice president.

Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American

history. In Promises to Keep, he reveals what these experiences taught him about

himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government.

With his customary honesty and wit, Biden movingly and eloquently recounts growing

up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and

Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career

setbacks; his relationships with presidents, world leaders, and lawmakers on both sides

of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees.

Farm for Life

Mahi, mana and life on the land

by Tangaroa Walker

The awesomely inspiring true story of how Tangaroa Walker turned his life around through

farming - and how what he learned can help anyone succeed.

Tangaroa Walker’s early years were pretty rough. Adopted twice, he went to six different

schools by the time he was six. He never read a book in his life and lived to play rugby.

But he had a dream, and he knew how to do the mahi.

Today, T is a true community and industry leader running a successful 500-cow dairy

farm and reaching millions as the much-loved face of Farm4Life with his practical,

inspiring, crack-up videos on everything from farming to fishing, finance to whanau,

management to mental health.

This is the story of how he did it - the good and the bad times - and all the lessons

learned along the way.

Gangland

New Zealand’s Underworld of Organised Crime

By Jared Savage

New Zealand is now one of the most lucrative illicit drug markets in the world. Organised

crime is about making money. It’s a business. Award-winning investigative reporter

Jared Savage shines a light into New Zealand’s rising underworld of organised crime

and violent gangs.

Mauri Ora

by Peter Alsop and Te raumawhitu Kupenga

Pearls of wisdom contained in proverbs - whakatauk I - have been gifted from generation

to generation as an intrinsic part of the Maori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine

analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful,

they surprise, engendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri Ora links

whakatauk I to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The

virtues - wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief - stem from the

science of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life. Illustrated throughout

with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to

provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection

of Maori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.

Santa’s right-hand man keeps kids happy

• By Bea Gooding

IT’S WIDELY known that Santa

creates his Christmas magic in

the North Pole, but Malcolm

Westgarth and his elves will have

you believe otherwise.

Making nearly 1000 wooden

toys by hand each year, volunteers

at The Santa Claus Workshop

Charitable Trust donate

them to children across the city

who otherwise would not receive

a gift from Santa.

Malcolm, 83, manages the

workshop at Shirley Intermediate

School’s technology block,

ensuring the toys are in tip-top

shape for their new homes in

time for the festive season.

He said many of Santa’s helpers

were in their 60s to 80s. Like

the others, a sense of joy washes

over him when he hears of the

impact the gesture had on childrens’

lives.

The toys were distributed

to families by organisations

such as the Delta Foundation,

the Mayor’s Welfare Fund, the

Shirley Community Trust and

other charities.

“A little boy a few years ago

was given a little wooden tractor;

he was told he could take

it home and that it was his. He

just burst into tears, he couldn’t

understand it. He had never been

given anything like that before,”

he said.

“That gets at our guys, they

like to hear what happens and

the stories where things are done

to help these kids.”

Nearly 16 years ago Malcolm

had some spare paint lying

around in his garage.

He was adamant it would not

go to waste. It was Resene paint,

after all.

His wife instructed him to

take it to the Shirley Community

Centre who knew of others who

needed it and eventually connected

with Santa’s workshop.

The workshop has been providing

Christmas joy to children

since 1978 when two Richmond

carpenters decided to do something

new with their Sunday

mornings.

They put a call out in “the

JOY: Santa Claus Charitable

Trust manager Malcolm

Westgarth and his helpers

toys by hand each year for

needy children.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

local rag” for donations of

broken wooden toys, which they

repaired and donated to needy

families in the area.

They operated out of the community

centre until the February

22, 2011, earthquake damaged

the building. With support from

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, they relocated to the

school a year later.

“I donated some paint I had in

my garage to the workshop and

was asked within 10 days when I

was going to come by and put it

on the toys.”

The responsibility of painting

the toys has mostly been his ever

since, but Malcolm is not alone.

Twice a week for about eight

hours he is joined by 15 volunteers

who help cut timber and

construct the toys either at the

school or within the comfort of

their home workshops.

Made of full timber with the

absence of medium-density fibreboard,

the toys were designed

to last and range from dinosaurs,

animals and cars to puzzles,

games and building blocks.

It costs a minimum of $8000

to run the workshop, but large

donations of timber, operating at

the school rent-free, and financial

support from The Lions Club

of Christchurch helped the trust

stay afloat.

Back then they made about 250

toys a year and has since grown

to their personal best of 1300 in

2019. Last year they created 980

in spite of Covid-19 disruptions.

Because the toys aren’t made of

plastic like most were nowadays,

the wooden toys were “better for

the kids.”

“They’re making a comeback.

These are very popular because

people know they’re going to

last.”

Malcolm encourages volunteers

to make about 20 to 30

units of their favourite toys, attempting

to introduce a new toy

every year.

He had difficulty determining

which one was his favourite to

make, but things such as sewing

machines and toasters were what

“dumbfounded” him the most.

More popular items included

wooden chairs and cots designed

for dolls, which are also supplied

by the trust, including the bedding

and the dolls.

The hardest part of it all was

not being able to fulfil each

child’s request and having the

time to do everything.

Said Malcolm: “We used to

have a telephone permanently

hooked up. We would get phone

calls from children asking for

this and that. A lot of these

things were not on our radar and

we didn’t even consider making

them.

“We try to give kids what they

want, but it doesn’t work that

way.”

Malcolm may be working out

of the same rooms where he

learnt the art of woodworking

himself as a former pupil of

Shirley Intermediate, but it was

not his only passion.

He grew up in the area with

his parents and twin sisters

and attended Shirley Primary

School.

He did not tinker in the workshop

at home. Instead, he was an

avid stamp collector and used to

be the librarian for the Christchurch

Philatelic Society for nearly

14 years.

Malcolm retired from his only

job of 40 years as the sales manager

for the Union Steam Ship

Company, organising ferries to

Wellington and cargo ships to

America, India, Pakistan and

North America.

He joined the trust because he

wanted something to do with his

time.

The trust is currently in the

process of finding a new rent-free

facility – about 300 sq m in size

with enough storage space for a

container.

More volunteers were always

welcome, said Malcolm.

“The school have been very

generous letting us have these

rooms rent-free as they had

more class room than needed,

but that’s not on the Ministry of

Education’s agenda [anymore],”

he said.

“We’re all getting a bit older

and we need more help. We need

younger people to get involved

too.”

International students at Shirley Boys’ High School

harvested a crop of potatoes to give to the City

Mission and families in need of help. The potatoes

were planted in the school’s vegetable garden

during the September holidays, overseen by senior

international student Thong Le of Vietnam. The

international students volunteer their time to the

vegetable garden as part of their contribution to

charity and service. The group also grows other

vegetables such as silver beet, carrots, courgettes

and beetroot, to donate to a grateful City Mission.

Above – International students at

Shirley Boys’ High School, including

Kotaro Doi, Naoyuki Furukawa

(rear) and Den Otsuki, have grown

hundreds of potatoes for charity.

New Brighton has proud harness racing history

The New Brighton

Museum has a rich

history spanning for

than 100 years. Peggy

Butterfield writes

monthly about the

historical display at the

heritage museum

THE SITE where Avonside and

Shirley Boys’ High Schools stand

has a wonderful racing history.

When one of the first settlers,

Mr Free arrived, the area was just

sandhills. He proceeded to make

a race track where he trained his

horses.

This was then developed into

the New Brighton Trotting Club,

with horses competing which had

been trained in the local stables.

Ron and Wally Kerr trained

horses at Wildwood Stables on

Wainoni Rd – the Frosts owned

stables at 153 Bexley Rd.

Bert Stafford lived and trained

at Santa Anita at 173 Palmers Rd.

He owned and trained a number

of horses in his time, but he said

that Pot Luck was the best he had

owned.

These stables were also named

Terra Nova Lodge with Roy

Messervey training Great News.

Robert Button bought Brooklyn

Lodge, a large estate that

included a stud farm and racing

stables, and also a full-sized race

track that was leased to the New

Brighton Trotting Club.

His daughter Bella Button was

the champion lady driver in 1907,

being the first woman to compete

in a race meeting.

Alfred Wilson drove Factory

Boy in the inaugural New Zealand

cup in 1904. His training

stables were in Bower Ave on a

large section that ran through to

Palmers Rd.

In 1909 his mare Myonotis

paced one mile in 2min 15sec –

the first horse in New Zealand to

make such time.

The New Brighton Trotting

Club was established in the late

1890s and the final meeting was

held there in February 1942.

In 1963 the land was sold to the

council for $75,000, and QE II

was built there ready for the 1974

Commonwealth Games.

These wonderful sports facilities

were all lost in the February

22, 2011, earthquakes, but now

the site bears those lovely schools

and a smaller swimming pool.

The New Brighton Museum

is proud to display the racing

colours from two local

champion horsemen plus a lot

of memorabilia, and race books

from the New Brighton Trotting

Club.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

PEGASUS POST

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

service. The mechanical work has been top

notch! If you want top service and value for

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

honest guy who gets the job done in a very

timely manor and he has outstanding

communication. The overall service I’ve

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.

Give Parker Automotive a shot next

time you need something done. Kevin

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark

Lewis

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive

moved from premises on the Lincoln

and Torrens roads corner to a new site

at 23B Birmingham Drive, Middleton.

Opening hours are Monday to

Friday 7.30am-4pm, Saturday 8am-

Manukura Kōrero

Mā te kimi ka kite, Mā te kite ka mōhio, Mā te mōhio ka mārama Seek and

discover. Discover and know. Know and become enlightened.

Our focus on hautūtanga/leadership in 2021 provides us with exciting opportunities

to identify and grow some of our kura’s strong and capable leaders. The

2021 school year began well with positive numbers of senior ākonga in years

11 to 13 returning to kura to continue their studies for NCEA. Ākonga success

in 2020 was very positive with greater numbers of ākonga achieving NCEA

Credits at Levels 1, 2, 3.

Our ākonga are to be commended on their commitment to study and their

improved results. Junior school hautūtanga/leadership continues to grow from

strength to strength. An exciting innovation in 2021is the launch of our Intermediate

School structure for Years 7 & 8. Housed in Korepo the Year 7 & 8

ākonga are working with kanmahi to co-construct a dynamic ako/learning space

that allows them to enjoy all the advantages of an Area School environment

with the added focus on those important intermediate years. Whānau are

invited to attend the weekly assemblies to catch a glimpse of the exciting mahi

covered at this level. The school roll has increased this year and as a result we

have welcomed a number of new kaimahi to our kura. The Board’s specialisation

employment policy has provided us the opportunity to employ Specialists

in Chemistry, ESOL and Te Reo Māori.

Our first month of Term 1 has been challenging. We joined with the people

of Ōtautahi to commemorate the lives lost in the 2011 Earthquake and then

moved again into COVID-19 Alert Level 2. I am so proud of our ākonga and all

they have achieved in the few shorts weeks we have been back at kura. with a

real sense of pride in the young men and women who make this the remarkable

school that it is!

I want to thank you as whānau for sharing

with us your greatest gift – your tamariki and

rangatahi. They live in a pressurized world

and are often expected to be old before their

years. As a community we need to let them

be “kids.” They have a lifetime of responsibility

ahead of them – so for now let’s allow

them to focus on schoolwork, homework,

sport and cultural activities and most importantly

positive age appropriate relationships.

It is going to be a great year and I am looking

forward to working with you and for you in

the best interests of all.

Dr. Peggy Burrows

Haeata Community Campus warmly congratulates

Haeata Student Charlotte Burrell on the publication

of her witty piece of writing, ‘The Janitor’s

Office’. This has been published in the yearly journal

Re-Draft. Re-Draft is a nationally acclaimed

collection of teenagers’ writing, published each

year by Clerestory Press.

Any New Zealand teenager can enter work

using the form found in the back of the current edition of Re-Draft. Entries can be any

creative writing genre and will be judged by award winning New Zealand writers. This

accomplishment is a credit to Charlotte’s hard work, and we are so proud of her!

Student Leadership 2021

Whaia e koe ki te iti kahurangi; ki te tuohu koe, me maunga teitei

Seek the treasure you value most dearly; if you bow your head, let it be to a

lofty mountain.

On Tuesday 2 March, we celebrated the appointment of our student leaders. This is the

second year that Haeata Community Campus has had student leaders and we are so

pleased with the culture change this is instilling at Kura. The event was a great mana-enhancing

event for our ākonga, whānau, and kaimahi as we celebrated their appointment. Our hospitality

pathway students also put on a great spread for our guests to enjoy afterwards.

We congratulate our 2021 Student Leaders as they embark on an exciting adventure leading

our school, and being an example to our ākonga in 2021.

Haka Off 2021

Two of our Pathway programs: Services Academy and Mangopare Senior

Sports Programme performed a haka off at Haeata. Services have their own

Haka, and the composer of the Aranui Community Sports Haka gifted it to

the school for our sports teams.

This was a great opportunity for our ākonga to explore Te Ao Māori, Haka,

and Collaboration. Soon our seniors will support our juniors to learn each

haka as well, to build a supportive and culturally aware kura. We are so excited

to see where our ākonga go in these amazing programmes.
