Helping budding surfers D H I to hang 10

• By Samantha Mythen

MAKING SURFING accessible

for everyone is the aim of a new

project starting in Sumner.

The Goat Shed is an

initiative led by friends Lucas

Sampaio and Carlos Alonso.

They are beginning to build

surfboards, with the goal of

creating a surfboard lending

library.

The project combines Sampaio

and Alonso’s passion for

surfing, art, creativity, design

and engineering.

When the Government announced

the country would be

going into lockdown last year,

Alonso bought all the materials

he would need to be able to

make a surfboard.

He knew it was likely that

surfing would not be permitted

but still wanted to connect with

surfing in some way, having

engaged with the sport since he

was six-years-old.

Sampaio also bought supplies

to try and shape a surfboard

from scratch, something he had

never done before.

After the lockdown, the two

formed a team.

“Then we had an idea

thinking it would be cool if we

could make more surfboards.

But we thought, we cannot try

out and use all of the boards

we make ourselves, and where

would they all go anyway,”

Sampaio said.

Felling of

peninsula

pine trees

sparks

sediment

damage fear

• By Samantha Mythen

THE BANKS Peninsula

community has banded together

to speak out against the upcoming

removal of pine trees on Moepuku

Peninsula.

They fear the removal will result

in high levels of sedimentation

entering Lyttelton harbour,

which will adversely affect the sea

environment.

Charteris Bay Residents

Association chairman, Mike

Pearson, alongside the Diamond

Harbour Community Association,

has approached the city council

and Environment Canterbury on

behalf of those concerned.

Pearson said he understood the

trees were originally planted by a

former owner of the land Patrick

Cotter to stabilise the ground soil,

not for forestry.

The peninsula has 5km of sea

to land borders with access to 12

beaches.

Of the peninsula’s 68.88ha,

50ha is planted with pinus radiata,

which were planted between 1981

and 1985.

• From page 1

He believes the planting of

the trees was authorised by the

now amalgamated Mt Herbert

County Council, approving it as

a soil conservation forest. This

was confirmed by David Collins,

a former chairman of the county

council.

Said Pearson:

“Our view is, if

the pines have

not been planted

for forestry but

for soil stabilisation,

that’s what

it should be there

for.”

Pearson said

Pearson

the original planting was not for

commercial purposes and yet it

is now going to be commercially

logged.

“This would be ultra vires with

respect to the Resource Management

Act.”

When submitting their letter

to ECan, Pearson also attached

a legal opinion, which states

the harvesting should not commence

prior to consents under

subsection 13-15 of the RMA

being obtained.

These subsections relate to

restrictions on use of riverbeds

and coastal water and discharge

of contaminants into an environment.

ECan told Bay Harbour News

its legal team will respond to the

letter this week.

The associations have consistently

run community clean-ups

and ensure residents are aware

of planting to prevent sedimentation.

“We have always been supportive

of Healthy Harbour

work and have seen much improvement

in water quality over

the years. We do not want this

all to be in vane,” Pearson said.

The area adjacent to the peninsula

at the head of Charteris Bay

is a breeding area for rig shark.

The harbour is also a habitat and

exploring ground for hectors

dolphin, flounder, stingrays and

orca.

“When the sedimentation enters

the harbour, all of this will

be severely impacted,” Pearson

said.

The group has questioned the

sedimentation plan in place,

stating it is not robust enough.

Its concerns relate to whether

any sedimentation controls will

be put in place and how the sedimentation

will be monitored.

It has also asked about a

mitigation plan for the effects

of future landslides into the

harbour as a result of the pines

being removed.

Representatives discussed

these concerns at the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

meeting last Monday.

As a result, the board will

write to ECan on behalf of the

community, sharing its concerns.

“We need to make sure ECan

has controls in place and procedure

is being followed,” board

chairwoman Tori Peden said.

“I understand the

communities fear that their

healthy harbour will be

jeopardised.”

ECan Banks Peninsula Zone

lead Gillian Jenkins said the

logging is a permitted activity

and they will be monitoring the

harvest to ensure provisions

under the National Environmental

Standards for Plantation

Forestry are met.

Said Pearson: “We are really

proud of our harbour and want

it to be protected.”

Gulf Wars

How We Kept The Cup

by richard Gladwell

Gulf Wars is a pictorially driven celebration of Emirates Team New Zealand’s

America’s Cup win in Auckland 2021, written from an on the water perspective

by one of the world’s most influential America’s Cup photo-journalists,

Richard Gladwell.

Richard Gladwell is an international sailing journalist and photographer who

lives in New Zealand. He began sailing when he was ten years old and first

wrote about the America’s Cup five years later. A Kiwi representative sailor,

he competed internationally in dinghies and keelboats for 12 years, sailing

with and against some of the current senior members of Emirates Team New

Zealand. He has covered the America’s Cup and Team New Zealand in its

various renditions for the past 35 years.

Between Five Eyes

50 years of Intelligence Sharing

by Anthony r. Wells

UK/US intelligence and the wider Five Eyes community of Canada, Australia and New

Zealand is primarily about one main thing: Relationships. In this remarkable book,

Anthony Wells charts fifty years of change, turmoil, intense challenges, successes and

failures, and never-ending abiding Five Eyes relationships. He traces the development

of institutions that he firmly believes have sustained, and indeed may have saved,

Western democracies and their allies from those ill disposed to the value system and

culture of our nations. More than a chronology of the UK/US intelligence community

during this fifty-year period, it is also a personal insight into key relationships and the

abiding strength of the United States and the United Kingdom and its Five Eyes allies

relationships. The author is the only living person to have worked for British Intelligence

as a British citizen and US Intelligence as a US citizen. He was a fully trained and

accredited security officer for two US intelligence organizations, and used his own

extensive unclassified collection of papers, personal notes and diaries, as well as his

family library for source material to create this book.

A Nurse’s Story

by Louise Curtis with Sarah Johnson

Moving, honest and inspiring – this is a nurse’s true story of life in a busy A&E department

during the Covid-19 crisis.

Working in A&E is a challenging job but nurse Louise Curtis loves it. She was newly

qualified as an advanced clinical practitioner, responsible for life or death decisions

about the patients she saw, when the unthinkable happened and the country was hit by

the Covid-19 pandemic. The stress on the NHS was huge and for the first time in her

life, the job was going to take a toll on Louise herself.

In A Nurse’s Story she describes what happened next, as the trickle of Covid patients

became a flood. And just as tragically, staff in A&E were faced with the effects of lockdown

on society. They worried about their regulars, now missing, and saw an increase in

domestic abuse victims and suicide attempts as loneliness hit people hard. By turns

heartbreaking and heartwarming, this book shines a light on the compassion and

dedication of hospital staff during such dark times.

The Auschwitz Photographer

Based on the true story of Wilhelm Brasse

by Luca Crippa and Maurizio Onnis

When Germany invaded Wilhelm Brasse’s native Poland in 1939, he was asked to swear

allegiance to Hitler and join the Wehrmacht. He refused. He was deported to Auschwitz

concentration camp as political prisoner number 3444. A trained portrait photographer,

he was ordered by the SS to record the inner workings of the camp. He began by taking

identification photographs of the prisoners as they entered the camp, went on to capture

the criminal medical experiments of Josef Mengele, and also recorded executions.

Between 1940 and 1945, Brasse took around 50,000 photographs of the horror around

him. He took them because he had no choice.

Eventually, Brasse’s conscience wouldn’t allow him to hide behind his camera. First he risked

his life by joining the camp’s Resistance movement, faking documents for prisoners, trying

to smuggle images to the outside world to reveal what was happening. Then, when Soviet

troops finally advanced on the camp to liberate it, Brasse refused SS orders to destroy his

photographs. ‘Because the world must know,’ he said.

Crusade On!

Celebrating 25 years Of The Crusaders

By Matt McIlraith

The Crusaders are not just another sports team. Out of a modest beginning grew the

most formidable professional club entity rugby has ever seen. Yet sustained on-field

excellence is just part of the story of a team that succeeded by living its stated ethos of

hard work, the embracement of diversity, and a commitment to represent its people with

pride and humility. Join the crusade as Matt McILraith takes you inside the club’s first

25-years, dissecting the key moments, the successes and the rare failures, complete with

season analysis, biographies of all 245 players, and the five head coaches, as well as

statistics from all 370 games the team played. A 360-degree portrait, Crusade On also

introduces some of the larger-than-life personalities, from within the team and off the

field, all of whom helped to make the Crusaders what they are. The way the Crusaders

accomplished their success, with no one person more important than any other, and

the enduring culture they created to sustain it, is an example of continued achievement

that is as relevant for the boardroom as it is for the sporting arena. On-going success in

any pursuit is not achieved by accident. This is why the Crusaders’ story is so important.

Approval given to

progress wharf upgrade

• By Samantha Mythen

THE DIAMOND Harbour

Wharf upgrade project has been

given approval to progress to the

next stage.

Last Thursday, the city

council’s Transport and Urban

Development Committee made

the decision allowing the project

to move ahead to the detailed

design phase.

This phase will allow for detailed

cost estimates.

Banks Peninsula councillor

and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said preliminary

estimates during the concept

development have indicated the

project will be delivered within

the existing budget.

After the design phase has

been completed, a contractor for

construction will be procured

and then construction on the

wharf will begin.

Said Turner: “After some time

in the planning it is great to

see this much needed upgrade

happening. This is a significant

improvement to accessibility and

public safety – great news for the

community and for ferry users.”

Said Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman

Nathan Graham: “The association

is very happy that the wharf

will be more accessible to those

with young children, the elderly

and others who struggle with

accessibility.”

A time line on how the project

will commence is yet to be

released.

• From page 1

“I’ve always wanted to be

involved in the community and

then we came up with the idea

for the library of boards, and

lending them out to the community.”

Said Alonso: “We realised this

was something we wanted to

keep doing. We are enjoying the

process and pushing each other.

It’s hard work but trying out the

boards makes it all worth it.”

The idea is that people will be

able to borrow a surfboard for a

koha.

“People can’t always afford a

board, plus the library would

mean people can try out and

experiment with different styles

of boards,” Sampaio said.

Alonso explained they had

brainstormed the idea that if

people liked a surfboard they

tried, they could then buy the

board for a low cost price covering

the materials for the board

and the materials for another

board to then be made for the

library.

“It’s not just about us making

the boards, but we want it to be a

community initiative. We would

love for people to provide feedback

on the boards too,” said Alonso.

The Sumner Hub is home to

The Goat Shed team. They have

set up their workshop in a converted

garage, built specifically

by and for the team.

Sampaio

Initiative to benefit community

It is a non-profitable project,

and the two men are currently

spending mostly their own money

and time to fund the venture.

The project is in its early stages

and they are currently shaping

their first few surfboards.

In the meantime, they are thinking

of offering to repair boards

to bring in more income to help

develop the project further.

Said Sampaio: “We want people

to believe in us and to do that

we have to show we are doing

something. We want to show

this is a project which is up and

running.”

THIS YEAR’S Single Fin Mingle

event for women features 33

longboarders.

The high number of entries

compares well to the 48 who have

entered the men’s event.

Event founder Ambrose

McNeil said: “There are some

amazing female surfers and we

want to support them and ensure

women’s surfing will keep being

increasingly promoted.”

The event always awards equal

prize money for both the male

and female surfing categories.

This happened even before

the World Surf League started

to offer equal prize money to its

female competitors in 2019.

Several Sumner women will

be competing including Brittany

Andrews and Lili Bay.

Andrews has been surfing for

most of her life, thanks to her

dad.

“He has surfed for 40-plus

years, so being his only child I

had no choice,” she said.

“The first time I went surfing

was in a competition when I was

super young, he just entered me

in it for a laugh I think.”

She began to specialise in longboarding

with again motivation

from her dad, the longboarding

community and the Mingle

crew.

“For me longboarding is quite

relaxing . . . being able to cruise

along the waves brings a big

sense of calm and connection to

the ocean,” said Andrews.

The Mingle is Andrews’ favourite

event of the year.

“Everyone is supported and

welcomed no matter if you surf

or not. The inclusion of everyone

and love shown makes it so

special.”

Bay has competed in the event

since its beginnings in 2014.

“It’s always awesome to surf in

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

the competition and it has been

incredible seeing it grow over

the years with the whole Sumner

community getting involved,”

she said.

“I watch in awe as it unfolds.

The competition is always the

small part, the biggest and best

part is having fun with friends.”

Bay moved to New Zealand

with her family from Germany

when she was 13. The first thing

her family did was try surfing.

SKILLED:

talent. ​

The longboarding community

and its surf has inspired Bay’s

own interest in the style.

“The beauty about longboarding

is that it is a completely even

playing field between men and

women as it is about grace and

style more than force and energy,”

she said.

“Many of my friends are beautiful

longboarders and everyone

has a different aesthetic and style

that they bring into their surfing

Longboard competition attracts 33 women

that can’t be compared with each

other.”

Surfing New Zealand general

manager Ben Kennings said: “I

think a lot of females love the

longboard and can enjoy it whatever

the wave. It offers a lot more

opportunities to get in the water.”

Both Andrews and Bay love

the surfing community, especially

the women who make up a

large portion of it.

“I feel lucky for this community.

I am grateful that so many

women here are into it. I know

other wahine around Aotearoa

don’t have the same sense of

community we experience here,

again we have events like the

Mingle to thank for that, there is

always a big turnout of women

longboarders that come which

creates a bigger sense of community

and empowerment for

women,” Andrews said.

Bay explained she had never

felt a disadvantage as a woman

surfing in Sumner but had heard

about struggles of other female

friends in places around the

country.

“I feel really lucky. I’ve never

felt out of place,” she said.

“It’s cool to see so many girls

surfing in Sumner, especially

seeing the increase over the last

few years.”

Celebrating surfing, music and culture

• By Samantha Mythen

CELEBRATION TIME: The Single Fin Mingle festival starts

on Thursday with two musical events planned for the

weekend featuring Kiwi talent There’s a Tuesday and Jed

Parsons.

SINGLE FIN Mingle founder

Ambrose McNeil is quarantining

in managed isolation before

heading to Sumner, to run the

longboard surfing event.

The four-day festival celebrates

a love of longboarding which

will run from Thursday to

Sunday this week and is in its

seventh year.

McNeil is most looking forward

to seeing the community

come together to celebrate and

have a good time at the Mingle.

“It is pretty special to be able

to bring friends from around the

country and the Sumner community

together to participate in

the competition plus do all the

fun things.”

Sumner is the best place to run

the event, McNeil said.

Although the waves are not always

the greatest, the enthusiasm

from the community makes the

event so special.

“The community there are

so supportive and tight-knit.

There are great venues, a beautiful

theatre, amazing bars and

restaurants, surf clubs. The local

businesses really get behind the

event,” McNeil said.

The biggest hurdle for this

year’s Mingle for McNeil has

been actually getting back to

Sumner, having lived in Australia

for the past five years.

“It was touch and go for a

while there,” McNeil said, booking

a spot in managed isolation

proving to be quite difficult.

He is only allowed to leave isolation

the day before the event starts.

The core of the event is the

longboarding competition.

Although the competition is

divided by gender, there are no

age categories, with the youngest

competing 14 and the oldest in

their 60s.

“What makes longboarding

special is that is spans a full age

and gender divide, we can all

chat about the same thing, no

matter your background.”

It is an invitational festival

meaning you have to be invited

to participate.

McNeil said: “The idea behind

this was to make it prestigious

so we can showcase world-class

longboarders.”

McNeil and a few others across

New Zealand scout out potential

participants at surfing competitions,

look for people who stand

out at local beaches and find

others through word of mouth.

But it is not meant to be an

exclusive event.

“Half of it is how good you are;

the talented longboarders who

put effort into perfecting the fine

art of this traditional style of

PHOTO: JONATHAN SMIT

surfing,” McNeil explained.

“The other part of the criteria

is just being a cool, laid-back,

good person.”

The event has developed in

many different ways each year.

In the early days of the Mingle,

its biggest party held 100 people

at a local venue.

This year, it is building its own

venue in the Sumner Village

Mall which can hold 800.

The event has also extended an

extra day and night with more

going on throughout the days.

There are two musical soirees

showcasing local musicians such

as There’s a Tuesday; a film gala

of surf cinematics, and an art

show at LEstrange Gallery.

The ‘Wonderful Warm Up” gig

including Two Minds from Mt

Pleasant was held on Saturday.

A special part of the event

will be the sale of Abrahands

stickers, available for a donation.

The donations will go towards

an alternative mental health

therapy, in memory of McNeil’s

brother Abraham McNeil who

committed suicide in 2019.

“We want to keep the conversation

around mental health

going,” McNeil said.

The Mingle has caught the

attention of an international

audience too.

In 2019, more than 50 surfers

from around the world competed

in the Sumner surf and more

than 100 other internationals

attended the festival.

“I’m blown away every year by

how the festival is growing. It’s

not about getting bigger but it’s

about trying new things to make

the experience better.

“Our goal has always been to

make this the best weekend of

the year,” McNeil said.

COMMUNITY groups are

taking the lead on a new

trapping initiative in the Port

Hills to help with predator

control.

The city council is working

alongside community groups

in Purau Reserve, Birdsey

Reserve, Barnett Park and

Giants Nose Reserve.

It will be a six-month project

to investigate how trapping

can be safely supported in the

smaller community reserves.

This is a part of the city

council’s commitment to

make the Port Hills and Banks

Peninsula pest-free by 2050.

City council community

parks manager Al Hardy said

a training workshop was conducted

at the end of last year,

equipping volunteers with the

necessary skills needed to set

and monitor traps.

Many of those involved in

this project have already been

trapping in the reserves for

some time.

Said Hardy: “Other community

groups are new to

trapping but have been doing

planting and maintenance

work in their local park. They

see trapping as the next step

towards restoring urban biodiversity.”

Community group Friends

of Purau Reserve has been

working over the past few

years to weed and then replant

the reserve with indigenous

vegetation.

After discovering hedgehogs,

mice and rats in

the reserve, they are now

implementing a trapping

programme as part of this

Community helps with predator trapping

initiative.

Since first setting traps at

the beginning of March, they

have already caught four rats.

Said Purau Reserve volunteers

co-ordinator Bronwyn

McLennan: “I got involved because

we need a habitat bridge

or link between the city and

Banks Peninsula for our native

species, especially our birds,

to be safe and proliferate. It’s

possible that if we actively trap

predators in our cities that we

could create a haven for our

wildlife.”

last Tuesday confirmed the

NEW BUILD: The Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade building will soon be demolished

and another facility will be built on the Wiggins St site.

next couple of weeks before

construction of the new

station begins.

The new station will be built

on the Wiggins St site, but

will also take in the section on

the corner of Wakefield Ave,

resulting in a larger footprint

for the station.

The station will have a

two-vehicle appliance bay,

office space and a meeting and

training room in a purposebuilt

modern facility.

Locals should be aware

that during the build process

the normal fire siren will

not be operating, but will

be reinstated when the new

station is operational.

The siren acts as an

additional means of

alerting the members –

pagers are not 100 per cent

reliable, particularly in the

hill-lined locality of the

Sumner valley.

The siren has been

reported to be a comfort

to those nearby who have

requested the brigade’s

assistance as it assures them

that their call for help has

been heard.

Sumner Fire Brigade

has operated in the local

community for 127 years,

and is entirely staffed by

volunteers.

Recruiting is currently

aimed at people who are

available to respond during

working hours.

If you wish to inquire about

joining and are available

during the week, phone chief

fire officer Daryl Sayer on 027

229 2402.

Interest grows in Diamond Harbour community garden

desire for the project.

Potential sites and reasons

for the garden were discussed.

THe next steps will be

to form a management

committee that then put

forward a project proposal to

the city council.

Hill dwellers need to be vigilant with water

In April, the

Redcliffs/

Te Rae Kura

Eco Village

Group will

be focusing

on water.

Co-ordinator

Dave Bryce discusses

water seepage on Banks

Peninsula

IF YOU LIVE on the hills and

have a problem with water

seepage and clay, you are not

alone.

The hills of Banks Peninsula

have varying amounts of a clay

material called loess on them.

This came as wind-blown dust

from the retreating glaciers in

the various “Ice Ages”.

It is comprised of tiny particles

which become suspended in

water, making it cloudy, like the

waters of glacial lakes such as

Lake Tekapo.

When the hills were covered

in native forest, rain water

dripped lightly from the leaves

The Avon-

Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai

Trust is a

non-profit

organisation

formed

to protect

one of New

Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each

week, board members will

discuss matters regarding

the estuary, its rich history

and what makes it unique.

This week Bill Simpson

writes about the influential

Peacock family

ONE OF THE mementoes of

the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch

earthquakes is the large mass

of netting on the cliff face

protecting the road at Clifton

Beach on the way to Sumner.

This area has had various

names – Shag Rock Reserve,

Clifton Beach and Peacocks

Gallop.

and soaked slowly through the

leaf litter into the soil.

Much of it was absorbed

by plant roots, but some

emerged in streams keeping

them flowing constantly

throughout the year (with

minor fluctuations). This clean

water supported ecosystems

including water plants, mussels,

invertebrates, koura, inanga,

kokopu and eels.

Since the removal of native

forests from the Port Hills, rainwater

pounds the grass and soil,

taking up chemical residues,

some water running down on

the surface, some soaking quickly

into the soil.

Some of this water triggers

downhill soil creep, and some

washes out loess underground,

collapsing the soil above it as

“under-runners”.

This water quickly discharges

into streams, depositing sediment,

smothering water plants,

degrading ecosystems, causing

major fluctuations in stream

water flows (from torrents to

prolonged dry spells).

The result is much faster

erosion of the hills than before,

and much more sedimentation

of streams, rivers, estuaries,

harbour beds and the ocean.

Many ecosystems across the

Peninsula cannot adapt to such

erosion, and many roads, houses

or other buildings may also be

at risk.

Hill dwellers need to be

vigilant – water gardens by

timers or by hand (and no

more than necessary); make

sure downpipes discharge

to roadsides, city council

stormwater pipes or appropriate

on-site storage tanks; wash

cars in water-recycling “carwashes”

or on lawns, but not

on driveways; never allow

water or soil to cross your

boundaries; never excavate or

fill land without appropriate

advice or city council

approval; never allow paint or

other contaminants to enter

stormwater; always check that

taps are off and not leaking.

Shag Rock

Reserve,

The Peacocks, father and son,

were influential businessmen in

the early days of Christchurch.

John Jenkins Peacock (1798–

1868) from Sydney owned several

ships which traded around

New Zealand’s coastal towns in

the 1840 and 1850s.

He was known as a hard-worker

and would think nothing of

wading into the Lyttelton harbour

in all weathers to load sacks

of potatoes onto his brig.

But he must have tired of that

because in 1857 he built the harbour’s

second jetty. It was known

initially as Peacock’s Wharf but

with enlargements and improvements

it later became known as

“No 7 Wharf.”

His son, Hon John Thomas

Peacock, (1827–1905) is probably

best known today as the donor of

funds for the Peacock Fountain

in the Botanic Gardens.

He was born in Sydney but

arrived in Christchurch in

1844 with his parents. John

Thomas was a businessman

and politician. He was also a

philanthropist, most notably

through his generous support

of the Christchurch Beautifying

Association.

He was also the member of

Parliament for Lyttelton from

1868 to 1873, and then appointed

to the Legislative Council from

1873 to his death in 1905.

He also found time to be the

first mayor of St Albans from

1881.

Prominent on the Tramways

Board he made an impassioned

plea in 1905 for widening the

road to Sumner so that traffic

would be protected from rocks

falling off Clifton.

“In the old days I used to

gallop along that bit of road

in order to get over it as fast as

possible, and it used to be called

‘Peacock’s Gallop,’” he told The

Press on January 13, 1905.

He would have been an

enthusiastic admirer of the

netting there today.

A message from the Board

To finally be able to reveal the plans for the new building is something we are all

incredibly excited about. When Archbishop Paul Martin, was appointed as Bishop

of Christchurch, he promised us he would make the rebuild of Marian College a

priority, and he was true to his word. Although it has taken somewhat longer than

originally planned, we think it has been worth the wait!

NCEA 2020 results

In the words of Mother Teresa “I can do things you cannot, you can do things I

cannot. Together we can do great things.” This could not be truer in the design

and planning of the new look Marian College. There have been so many people

involved in this project, from the students, staff and school community to the

professionals, who can do the things we cannot, it truly is a team effort.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to acknowledge the incredible work of the

Architects, Sheppard and Rout, and the Diocesan project management team, who

have listened and share our excitement about this build. They have all worked

hard to ensure the Catholic Special Character of Marian College is maintained in

a design which is quite unique. I’d also like to acknowledge the Marian College

Senior Leadership Team who have ensured the new school build meets the needs

of the staff and students for the future.

The significance of this new build project cannot be underestimated and as a

Board we feel very privileged to be a part of this. We look forward to working

alongside the team to ensure Marian College continues to thrive in the future.

Huge load space in Hyundai Santa Fe

MY SON recently purchased

a new television, a giant 65in

model.

The key question I asked

the salesperson at the time of

purchase was: “Would I be able

to transport it home in a sport

utility vehicle?’’ He answered yes,

if it was a big wagon.

Well, I was driving one of the

biggest mainstream SUVs in the

market – Hyundai’s new Santa

Fe – and although it was a bit of a

squeeze we did manage to get the

new TV home.

That’s one of the benefits of

the modern SUV concept, they

are adaptable with a multitude

of uses, and the new Santa Fe

Limited with its 2.2-litre diesel

engine is a class act. Well, I guess

it needs to be, at almost $90k it is

an SUV that commands a serious

financial outlay.

Of course, there are other model

options – seven variants make

up the new range which starts at

$62,990 for a 2.5-litre four-cylinder

petrol model, and there’s also

a V6 petrol in the line-up.

The new Santa Fe is exactly

that, it is an all-new shape and

sits on an all-new platform, what’s

more it gets a new diesel engine,

and while the cubic capacity is

much the same as the previous

generation model, it’s an all-aluminium

unit which is smooth,

quieter, more powerful and

efficient than before.

CAPABLE: Up to 1625-litres of cargo can be transported

beneath the Santa Fe’s tailgate.

HYUNDAI SANTA FE LIMITED: Plush, luxury SUV with a choice of engines.

The Limited model gets the

new diesel, although, as mentioned,

you can get it with petrol

power as well, but the V6 Limited

doesn’t have drive to all four

wheels.

That aside, the four-cylinder

turbocharged diesel is rated at

148kW (3800rpm) with 440Nm

of torque available from 1750rpm

to 2750rpm.

Not only are these outputs

impressive in terms of flexibility

and outright grunt, it is one of

the smoothest oil burners you are

ever likely to find in a vehicle of

this type.

It is hooked to a recently-developed

eight-speed dual clutch automatic

transmission, something

that is shared with Hyundai’s

partnership with Kia. Interaction

between the engine and gearbox

is smooth and seamless, and the

gear ratios are structured so that

they work efficiently with the

engine’s power and torque bands,

especially so the mid-range rev

spread.

In this form, the Santa Fe is relatively

quick for a vehicle which

weighs in at almost two-tonne.

According to my stopwatch it will

make 100km/h from a standstill

in under 9sec.

As you would expect in the

new-age SUV, the Santa Fe

is fitted with the latest drive

technologies, it has all-corner

propulsion which can be activated

by the driver at the turn of a

dial through a complex series of

modes and functions. Because of

the driveline mechanicals there is

a lot of suspension complexity.

Mostly, though, there is feel

and grip that the driver can use

with confidence and reassurance.

The ride is also quiet, and a lot

of that has to do with the quality

of the tyres – the big Continental

rubber (255/45 x 20in) has a firm

road feel and transports messages

to the steering wheel in a solid,

communicative way.

The Santa Fe is a fine touring

vehicle, and after years of development

the ride/handling balance

is as good as you would get in any

SUV, least of all one that sits in

the large luxury segment.

I presented the evaluation car

with a tight set of corners between

Darfield and Burnham, the

Santa Fe leans a little bit, but such

are the spring and damper rates

body movement isn’t excessive

and the occupants shouldn’t be

disappointed with the in-cabin

comfort levels.

Add in a vehicle that weighs in

at around 1900kg, there is a lot

of vehicle to get through a tight

corner, yet it does so with dignity

and purpose.

That’s one of the reasons why

SUVs have become so popular,

they perform admirably and,

in the Santa Fe’s case, it is also a

plush luxury car which impresses

• Price – Hyundai Santa Fe

Limited, $89,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4785mm; width, 1900mm;

height, 1710mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2151cc, 148kW, 440Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.5l/100km

with its refinement.

Major items of specification include

full leather trim with electrically

adjustable seats up front

(also heated). There is head-up

display, paddle-shift gear selectors

and new display graphics which

change face when the indicator

stalk is activated, side views of the

vehicle give the driver clear vision

of what is happening outside.

Also, it must be mentioned the

Limited model also gets remote

starting and movement, should

the driver’s door be hard to access,

such as a tight car park, the

vehicle can be driven forward or

reversed using the remote key.

Hyundai has upped the ante in

terms of fuel use. The Santa Fe

returned some interesting fuel usage

information during my time

with the test car. At 100km/h

in top gear the big diesel sips

fuel instantaneously at around

4.5-litres per 100km, turning over

at just 1600rpm. A test average of

7l/100km is respectable for vehicle

weight, and compares well to

Hyundai’s combined cycle claim

of 6.1l/100km.

Although the television wasn’t

heavy, it was bulky and claimed a

fair hunk of space made easy by

the clever seat folding system. In

terms of figures, the load area can

claim up to 547-litres, 1625-litres

with the rear second row of

seats folded. Yes, the Santa Fe is a

useful seven-seater.

I was scheduled into Hyundai’s

new Santa Fe just before Christmas,

however, a shipping mix-up

meant it wasn’t dispatched to

Christchurch.

Fast forward two months

and the range-topping Limited

arrived. The wait was really

worth it, it’s sophistication speaks

volumes, the Santa Fe is a model

that sits on the outer periphery

of the luxury wagon market, yet

it competes admirably with all of

the big names.

However, its biggest competition

will come from Kia’s new

Sorento; the two South Korean

companies are partners, yet battle

each other fiercely, especially in

terms of pricing.

The new Sorento, with a similar

driveline, has an advantage

there, how it all plays out in

the marketplace will be very

interesting to watch.
