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


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


Anh Que

Chu (right),

of Dallington,

with student

Wendy Blackler

at the Art

for Life Trust,

which teaches

people with


disabilities how

to find their

voices through




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


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.”

Zone Control for your

Ducted heat pump

Ducted heat pumps are a highly efficient

way to heat (or cool) your home. The

air from the heat pump is ducted to

several rooms or zones in your house.

Using a zone control system makes your

ducted heat pump even more efficient, by

specifying the amount of heat required

in each area, so not wasting energy to

overheat or overcool any room.

The AirTouch4 zone control system

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat pump

air zoning to a whole new level of comfort

and energy efficiency.

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone


Have total control of your comfort zone:

AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a different

level of conditioned air in the room they

are in.

Save money on the power bill, without

compromising on comfort, by only

running the heating or cooling where

you need it with Smart Zoning. Plus with

runtime tracking, energy and airflow

management technology, you can enjoy

greater efficiency and savings from your

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can also connect to

Google Home and Amazon Alexa.

Not every home is designed equal. Not

every room is either. 60 % Temperatures can

often fluctuate from one room to the next

because of sunlight, room activity or other


With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800


for more information on the AirTouch4

zone control.

Get the balance

right this winter

Enviro Master has been helping

Cantabrians get the balance right when it

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or

air conditioning system for their home or

office since 2002.

Their team of expert sales people, qualified

electricians, heating and refrigeration

engineers, help to supply and install

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,

and because they have no affiliation with any

one brand, you can be assured their advice

on the benefits and differences between each

product is unbiased.

They will recommend the most energyefficient

and cost-effective system for your

individual situation, and will have you

regulating the heat in your home or office in

no time.

Nowadays, customers are often wanting

whole home solutions to be able to maintain

even temperatures throughout the home both

in Winter and Summer. This can be achieved

by using ducted systems or multi systems

and Enviro Master are experts in designing,

installing and commissioning these systems.

Help is currently available with a

government subsidy covering 90 per cent of

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi

Homes initiative and is available to Home

owner/occupiers with a Community Services

Card, a SuperGold combo card or who live in

a low-income area as determined by deciles


8-10 on the New Zealand Deprivation Index.

The applicant’s home must also have been

built before 2008, have insulation up to code

(insulation subsidies also available) and have

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the deadline.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead

to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

your home or business, one of Enviro Master’s

“Bring back the girls!”, after their performance! Here we saw all that is authentically good in

our young people today. The fabulousness of skill and music, fun and talent was showcased by

schools from all over Canterbury, and Malborough.

It was not a competition in essence, but it was evident that each school was reaching new

heights of excellence and entertainment, as Shirley Boys High so ably showed with their

stunning, exuberant and highly skilled performance. They roared on stage, lifting the roof with

their routine. It was a joy to be there to witness such unity and super fast hand actions, and

choreography. The screams, shouts and applause from the audience echoed the tremendous

appreciation we all felt for their hard work and skill. But it was not only them, but

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


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.”

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.

Hornby High School

There will be an opportunity

to meet the staff and have a

guided tour of our new school.

Commitment, Achievement,

Resilience, Respect.

180 Waterloo Road, Hornby

Ph 03 349 5396

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.

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


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

Selwyn House


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


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

school by attending our Open Day on Monday
