Call for

policy to

address

loud noise

at council

events

• By Bea Gooding

IN THE days that followed two

popular community events,

Paul McMahon’s ears were still

ringing.

The music was so loud at the

Woolston Gala and Waltham

Summer Pool’s final day celebrations

that his nine-year-old son

with autism could not stand to be

there.

The Woolston resident has attended

the gala each year since

2010 and claims the music has

never been as loud as he described.

He is now calling for the city

council to adopt an “evidencebased,

health-led policy” on music

at events that protects hearing and

promotes community connection.

Said McMahon, in a letter to

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board: “I think if I

had made a noise control complaint,

they would’ve been told to

turn it down as I could hear it at

my house [which is] 400m away

across the river – it was at least a

third too loud. • Turn to page 3

Creative junk recyclers

to benefit from grant

GAIL CARSON literally has

a “feel” for creating a valuable

resource from discarded junk.

For more than 20 years, Carson

has picked over the items

on offer at non-profit recycling

space Creative Junk to put

together tactile books for blind

and low-vision children.

She said that the craft items

“are not junk at all,” describing

the organisation as “a wonderful

place where resources are recycled

and reused.”

“I visited Creative Junk for

more than 20 years, having run a

volunteer group that makes tactile

– feel and touch – books for

local blind and visually impaired

children.”

Creative Junk, which saves

a huge range of potentially

landfill-bound items for recycling,

has recently benefited

from a $9750 grant from the city

council’s Strengthening Communities

Fund.

Now retired and a volunteer,

Carson said she “spent a lot of

time searching the shelves for

anything to help make the tactile

books.”

“I was always looking for red

leather for animal tongues or

SUSTAINABILITY: Co-ordinator Christine Gayton sorts

through a range of colourful items at Creative Junk.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

green leather for frogs,” she

said.

For 40 years, the organisation

has promoted the importance of

recycling through creative and

imaginative use.

Children, early childhood

education centres, schools and

recreations groups and those

with disabilities all make the

most of the space and on-site

activities.

Co-ordinator Christine Gayton

said that the charity “shows

people how to create heaps of

wonderful things and even

potentially grow a business while

developing their skills.

“We only make a small

portion of our income through

the sale of resources and rely on

the generosity of the community

to remain open – so the council

grant is very valuable for day-today

costs and many communityfocused

activities,’’ Gayton said.

‘For many people, having

music that loud is disabling’

• From page 1

“My chief concern is for the

children – we know a lot about

the dangers of loud music that

we didn’t know growing up and

I don’t think it is acceptable for

council events to subject

children to it.”

McMahon said

his nine-year-old

son generally loves

Woolston Park, but

he could not handle

being there for a few

minutes.

“While he is autistic

and very sensitive to

loud noise, he also likes

music and I would’ve

usually expected him to want

to stay at the park for at least a

little while,” he said.

“But he was blocking his ears

on account of the music being

so loud. For many people, having

music that loud is disabling.”

Furthermore, he was

concerned the loud music

“impinges” on conversations

and connections people made

at such events, describing it as

more like “being in a bar” than

being at a picnic.

Community board chairwoman

Alexandra Davids

attended both events and said

Alexandra

Davids

although the music was loud, it

wasn’t “too” loud.

Woolston Park was a bigger

area to cover sound-wise hence

the loud volumes, and at the

pool party, “you’ve got a whole

bunch of young people

and is catering to the

masses.”

“Personally, I don’t think

it was too loud for myself,

but there are people in

the community where it

affects [them] more than

others,” she said.

“It’s really good to

start those conversations

because if we don’t know,

then we can’t do anything

about it. We can monitor it, and

it’s an opportunity to see if we’re

missing something policy-wise.”

City council head of regulatory

compliance Tracey Weston

said the council’s noise control

service did not receive any complaints

about the events.

“People are able to make

complaints about noise from

council events in the same

manner that they would

complain about other noise,

as the same rules apply to all

situations,” she said.

“There is no specific policy for

council events.”

Novel Success for Linwood

College Business Student

“Who we are” helping inform “what we do”

Linwood College at Ōtākaro has been motivating

students to find and forge their own unique and

exciting pathways through the senior Business

Studies course. The rich cultural diversity of the

school is embraced and students are also using this

to inform their new product and marketing ideas.

Partnering with the Young Enterprise Scheme, the

school has picked up a number of awards in the

competition and also helped usher several students

along paths to setting up their own businesses and

studying in universities.

Students from many different countries and

backgrounds has been a real source of strength

for the school and this has

been reflected in the successful

business teams. Abdullah Wahidi

is one such student whose

business team created a children’s

book that advocates for diversity.

The book garnered national media

attention and can now be enjoyed

by children in local libraries

throughout Christchurch.

Abdullah was born in Afghanistan

and later moved with his family to

Pakistan before settling in New

Zealand in 2018 and becoming an

LCŌ student. In his senior year,

his Business Studies class had to

come up with ideas for a project to

enter in the Lion Foundation Young

Abdullah and his brother Abbas Wahidi

at Linwood’s Festival of Nations.

Enterprise Scheme. It was Abdullah’s hope that he

could to do something to address intolerance towards

other cultures. His community had been severely

traumatised by the recent 2019 Mosque attacks, and

he wanted to find a way forward towards healing and

coming together. “The staff, the students and all the

people at Linwood College have always respected

other cultures and were proud of being a diverse

college. Though there were only few students from

Afghanistan, LCŌ always recognised us and made

us feel a part of them by putting the Afghanistan flag

up on our Festival of Nations day and by encouraging

us to wear our traditional clothes.”

He teamed up with Paigan Watson-

Hall, along with classmates Josh

Stiles and Luka Russell. They

decided to create a children’s

book featuring tales from around

the world in the hope of inspiring

families to take a more openminded

view of different cultures. A

$1000 grant from the Christchurch

City Council Community Activation

Fund gave the students the

financial boost they needed to get

the ball rolling.

The first-print run of the book was

completely sold-out within two

weeks. Their success was picked

up in the national media who

celebrated the uniqueness of their

ADVERTISEMENT

product and vision. The book can also now be found

in several libraries around Christchurch. Additionally,

the senior Business Studies students were presented

with the excellence award for customer and market

engagement at the Young Enterprise regional finals.

This year Abdullah is a Bachelor of Commerce student

at Lincoln University, majoring in marketing with a

minor in supply chain management. He is also part

of the Future Leader Scholarship Programme, which

provides students with opportunities to contribute to

the community. “I am the first in the family to study

at a university, so it was very exciting for me and my

family. I had a lot of tertiary education options but

chose Lincoln for the Future Leader Scholarship,

which is a program that is connected to what I want

to be in the future.”

Teacher finds her voice through art

• By Bea Gooding

ANH QUE CHU knows a thing

or two about how it feels to not

be able to communicate what’s

on her mind.

As an art teacher for people

with intellectual disabilities at

the Art for Life Trust, she understood

how much of a barrier

language can be.

Not knowing a word of English

when she first moved to New

Zealand in 1982 as a refugee following

the Vietnam War made

tasks such as getting a job that

much more strenuous.

But through art, she was able

to find her voice and has enabled

others to do the same.

Said Chu: “When I first

came here I couldn’t speak

English, so I went to Teachers’

College in the hopes of getting

a full-time job. But my English

wasn’t good enough at the time,

so I was very depressed. I just

wanted to have a full-time job,

but I couldn’t.

“The only thing I was good at

was practical art and demonstrations

on how to paint.”

When teaching in schools did

not go to plan, she drew on her

strengths by selling off drawings

and paintings.

The Dallington woman later

graduated from Ara Institute of

Technology in 2000 with a Bachelor

of Art and Design.

After landing a full-time job

privately teaching children and

adults at Your Studio Trust for a

number of years, Chu established

the Art for Life in 2013.

It provides art tuition to people

of all ages who live with an intellectual

disability.

It did not matter if students

had autism, Down’s syndrome,

or attention deficit hyperactivity

disorder – anyone could learn

how to make art using acrylic

and watercolour paint, ink pens

or charcoal.

At the end of year exhibition,

it was also a chance to generate

their own income by selling

pieces they made.

Art enabled them to express

themselves and to learn more

about colour therapy, but it was

a safe and inclusive place to

make friends while developing

confidence, self-esteem and pride

in their work.

Teaching art in other places

SLOAN

like high schools often meant the

end goal was to make students’

art stand out, but at the trust, it

was a different story.

“Here, that’s not the goal –

show them that you love them,

care about them, and help them

express their feelings,” said Chu.

“A lot of students here can’t

talk or hear, so you have to find

a way to understand and help

them communicate.”

Becoming a teacher was something

Chu fantasised about as a

teenager, but she never expected

to do so in another country.

Chu was a 25-year-old art student

when her family was forced

to flee Hanoi, Vietnam, in 1979,

four years after the Vietnam War

ended.

External tensions stemming

from the country’s dispute with

Cambodia and China in the

years that followed caused a mass

exodus of nearly 800,000 people

– most of Chinese descent, just

like Chu’s family.

After seven days of being

crammed in a boat with 396

other refugees, they eventually

made it to a refugee camp in

Hong Kong.

It was where she met her future

husband, a New Zealander, who

was working at the camp with

the Salvation Army.

Art has been a constant in

her life since her teenage years.

During the war, she was inspired

by an encounter with two art

students, who encouraged her to

study at Hanoi Arts School.

Now, Chu gets to live out her

teaching dream in a field she

is most passionate about while

making a colourful impact

within the disability community.

“A good teacher follows the

student. Usually, you try to get

the students to follow you, but

here, you follow them.”

Party held to celebrate tiny forest’s birthday

NESTLED ON the banks of the

Heathcote River in St Martins is

the King George V Reserve.

It has just turned 30, and

the community marked the

occasion with a birthday celebration

as a Neighbourhood Week

event.

This included a homemade

birthday cake with candles and

singing “happy birthday” to the

forest.

The celebration was held at

the adjacent St Martins scout

den and a wide range of ages

participated.

“We need to celebrate our local

places that we love,” said organiser

Mark Gibson.

“During Covid, many of us

have explored our local neighbourhoods

like never before and

discovered their immense value

in making our neck of the woods

much better places to live.”

King George V Reserve was a

Treaty of Waitangi sesquicentennial

natural heritage project and

was planted in 1990-91. So, the

event was blessed by Maui Stuart

from Rapaki.

He also spoke briefly about the

strong historic connection that

mana whenua has with this area

especially in terms of mahinga

kai.

The tiny forest is near the start

of the Rapaki Track.

A feature of the event was

a weaving workshop run by

the Kahu Collective. This was

particularly popular with

children.

The original designer of the

“forest” was Dr Colin Meurk,

and he led a walk through it.

Members of the Cashmere

High Student Volunteer Army

assisted on the day and played a

big role in planting more trees.

“This was one of the exciting

elements of the day,” Gibson said.

“Much of the original forest

was planted by students from

that school so it was appropriate

that another generation plant the

next generation of trees.”

The event also marked the

launch of a new Regenerative

Communities Pilot project led

by Flourish Kia Puawai Social

Enterprise.

People who are interested

in ongoing involvement in the

life of the forest and this new

initiative are encouraged to

Kirkwood Intermediate

School of Choice

Celebrating Kirkwood

House Captains for 2021

Year 7 Camp

Our Year 7 pupils have recently

attended a camp at Purau Bay.

This is a great way for the children

to get to know each other.

Swimming in the

ocean on the first day of

camp and picking up rubbish

in Governors Bay, for left over

chocolates, was my favourite part

of camp.

I learnt that Rippa Island existed,

and I learnt the island’s past uses.

I also learnt a lot more about

the Māori culture in and

around Ripapa.

From the left: Blake, Indianna, Varley, Connor, James, Marcella, Niamh

and Oscar

House Captains for Mansfield/Hillary

Varley C - Ex Springston School

The things I like about Kirkwood Intermediate School are swimming and

technology. This year I would like to inspire other students and take on new

opportunities. The reason I wanted to be a House Captain was to gain more

confidence in speaking to others and to try new things.

James B - Ex Springston School

I like Kirkwood Intermediate School for the sport opportunities that it offers.

This year I would like to be the best sports boy. The reason for wanting to

become a House Captain is that it will test and improve my leadership skills.

My favourite part of camp

was the abseiling because

it was fun basically walking

down a cliff.

On camp we learnt how to

turn the canoe.

House Captains for Sheppard/Freyberg

Marcella C - Ex Lincoln Primary School

I like Kirkwood Intermediate School for the opportunities that the school has

to offer, for example, extension opportunities and the sports options. This

year I would like to run fundraisers to improve the image and enjoyment of

school. I wanted to be a House Captain to gain more confidence in myself

and to make a difference by sharing my opinions.

Connor C - Ex Hoon Hay School

Kirkwood Intermediate School gives you many opportunities to try new

things. This year I would like to make Kirkwood Intermediate School a better

place. I wanted to become a House Captain so I could help people and it

gives me a good chance of trying something new.

House Captains for Britten/Te Kanawa

Indianna M - Ex Clearview Primary

One of the things I like about Kirkwood is the old fashion feel, I also love

that all the students get many opportunities offered to them. This year my

goal was to become a House Captain and now that I have achieved that my

new goal is to be a great leader so all of the students will have a great year.

The reason for becoming a House Captain is because it would boost my

confidence, encourage me to become a better person and be a good role

model for others.

Abseiling was my favourite

part of camp because it was

fun, challenging and a new

experience. I thought that I

wouldn’t go the whole way

down but I did!

My favourite part of

Purau Bay Camp was when

we played ‘Kick the Can’. It was

really funny watching people run

in other people’s clothes and the

seeker was so confused.

I learnt how to canoe, put on

the abseiling harness and

how to wash dishes.

Blake N - Ex Dunsandel Primary School

I like the range of subjects available at Kirkwood Intermediate School. This

year as a House Captain I want to make the school a better place. I would

like to help people and do my best to make a difference to the school.

House Captains for Rutherford/Batten

Niamh L - Ex Burnham Primary School

I enjoy Kirkwood Intermediate as there are many opportunities you can

take part in, for example, EPro8 (Inter-school Science and Engineering

Competition), Science badges and much more. I would like to organise

more fun days and sports days so this year can be memorable. I wanted to

become a House Captain to gain more confidence and improve my public

speaking. I am also a great leader.

Oscar M - Ex South Hornby

The part I like about Kirkwood Intermediate is that it is bigger than my

previous school and it has great staff. This year I want to make it a happier

place and make it exciting for those new to Kirkwood, especially those who

are quieter. I have not taken on many opportunities in the past. The teacher

I had last year said I would make a good leader so I thought I would take on

this opportunity.

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

New Marian College plans

have community buzzing

“WOW, WOW, WOW” was the common reaction from

students, parents, and the wider community when Marian

College unveiled the design of their new school due to open in

Papanui in 2023.

Marian College’s Catholic special character is front and

centre of the design with a beautiful chapel, garden, and

a prayer walk. It includes 26 full-sized flexible classrooms

designed to promote innovative teaching, including specialist

technology, music and performing arts areas.

The grounds will be planted with native trees, shrubs, and

edible gardens - reflective of the former Papanui Forest which

once existed on the site.

You are invited to learn more about what Marian College can

offer at our Open Day on Tuesday, 11 May from 4pm to 7pm.

Please visit our website or contact the team at Marian

College to enrol your daughter for 2022 and beyond.

Enrolment applications for Year 9 2022 close on Friday, 30 July.

to meet the staff and have a

guided tour of our new school.

Commitment, Achievement,

180 Waterloo Road, Hornby

Ph 03 349 5396

www.hornby.school.nz

When choosing the right school for

our tamariki we often go by the ‘feeling’

we have when we visit, as much as by the

programmes that schools have on offer.

The world demands fewer people who can

do repetitive tasks and more people who

can think creatively and critically. That’s

why our vision, our aspiration, as a school

is to be ‘A centre of creative excellence’

in everything that we do, whether visual

arts or chemistry, volleyball or music,

management or curriculum organisation.

In doing this we haven’t forgotten the

importance of the strong relationships

that we build with all of our students, and

the importance of individualising learning

pathways so that we come as close as we

can to meeting every individual student’s

needs. Hornby High School’s feeling is

one of positive relationships that support

learning. Students often comment that

we feel like whānau, like family. Visitors

without exception comment on the calm

learning focussed environment that they

see and feel when they visit our learning

spaces. This all takes place within our

amazing new facilities that are allowing

us to develop a new curriculum crossing

old subject boundaries and catering for

individual needs, that support student

passions, and help our students to grow

their heart for their community. On top of

that students always comment on the wide

range of sporting and other activities that

are on offer for them during their time at

school. We emphasise our values, promoting

the ethos of kindness, of manaaki. I

personally invite you to come along and

meet with our skilled staff, and the amazing

young people who make Hornby High

School such a wonderful place to be.

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Christian Integrated Schools

Working together for the good

of students and families has been

a successful recipe for Christian

Integrated Schools in Christchurch.

The Christian School Network

has been in existence for over ten

years. Aidanfield Christian School,

Emmanuel Christian School, Hillview

Christian School and Middleton

Grange School decided in 2005 that

there was much to be gained by

working together cooperatively. They

recognised opportunities to share

successful teaching practice, curriculum

development initiatives across a wide

spectrum of school operations as well as

cooperatively strengthening their special

Christian Character. They recognised

that their ability to serve students

and families was greatly enhanced by

working together in a close and trusting

relationship.

The success of the network has seen

other schools wanting to join in. Early

in the piece Rangiora New Life School

became part of the network. The schools

joined together to support the genesis

of Ashburton Christian School and also

culminated in the start up of a brand

new school in Rolleston in 2015.

The schools have developed

interlocking enrolment schools which

assists in providing transparent pathways

in Christian education from new entrant

through to Year 13.

A further strength has been a

cooperative engagement with the

Ministry of Education who have

been pivotal in assisting the networks

successful development.

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. You

are invited to view our website, school

charter, ERO report, and/or contact the

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Selwyn House

SOUTHERN VIEW

Selwyn House School is the only school in

Christchurch offering a girls’ only education

from years 1 through to 8. We believe that

combination, of a girls’ only education that

takes students from their earliest school years

right through to high school, is what gives our

students the strongest start to their secondary

education.

Our carefully crafted programme focuses

on developing ‘the total girl’, who has the

confidence, resilience, foundational knowledge,

creativity and compassion to succeed and lead

in the future. We help students identify their

own strengths and talents and tap into each girl’s

unique potential so that they leave this school

with the self-confidence and skill-set they need

to thrive at secondary school and beyond.

At Selwyn House we believe leaders are made,

not born, and that is why we put a particular

focus on leadership in the Senior School. In

comparison to other intermediate or middle

school high school programmes, our Year 7 and

8 students have the distinct advantage of being

the senior students in their school. Every girl

has the opportunity to serve in leadership roles

and the high number of Selwyn House students

that then go on to assume leadership roles

in their secondary schools, and later in their

careers, speaks for itself.

We understand girls at Selwyn House and

we know how important it is for our students

to feel supported and encouraged as they work

through those crucial development stages

between Years 1 and 8. Our students are able to

negotiate these formative years within a safe and

nurturing environment, where they are able to

be themselves, safely challenge themselves, and

develop a strong sense of self-worth.

Learn more about what makes a Selwyn

House School education the best start to
