MP lobbied to save schools’ path

• By Bea Gooding

AN ESTABLISHED pathway

between three primary schools

that keeps children and cyclists

off the road is at risk of not being

retained at the conclusion of a

redevelopment

project.

Cobham

Intermediate,

Burnside

Primary and

Allenvale

David

Cartwright

Sarah Pallett

schools will

soon have

major rebuilds,

but the Ministry

of Education

has no

plans to keep

the shared

pathway used

by dozens of

pupils and the

community.

The Fendal-

ton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board is

now seeking the support of Ilam

MP Sarah Pallett in lobbying the

ministry, which owns the land,

for the pathway’s retention.

Community board chairman

David Cartwright said keeping

cyclists safe was a “No 1 priority”

for the ward.

Said Cartwright: “In the initial

design by the Ministry of Education,

there was no consideration

given to cyclists and walkers to

move between [the schools].

UNDER THREAT: The shared pathway that leads to the Burnside Primary School

entrance on Ilam Rd, near Cobham Intermediate.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

“It has a high traffic flow and

foot count, with local residents

using it. It keeps cyclists safe

and encourages more people on

bikes.”

Burnside and Cobham are part

Special Pricing

for the

Weekend

of the $1.3 billion Christchurch

Schools Rebuild programme

(CSR), where 115 earthquakedamaged

schools are either being

rebuilt or redeveloped.

As part of the CSR, both

Lunch and Dinner

schools have been approved for

complete rebuilds, with an emphasis

on sharing facilities, given

their shared site.

In addition, the two schools

will host Allenvale School, which

‘It is a shortcut for

many residents, cyclists

and families.’

– David

Cartwright

is building a satellite school at

the Burnside and Cobham site,

and another new base in Belfast.

If the shared path is not

included in the ministry’s building

plans, it would force more

pupils and residents to use the

surrounding roads instead, such

as Ilam Rd.

“It’s their land, we need their

permission to go ahead,” he said.

“It is a shortcut for many

residents, cyclists and families

that travel through the schools.

It’s counter-intuitive to put more

people on the road,” he said.

The board is yet to hear back

on the Ilam MP’s progress with

the ministry.

In the meantime, the board

was satisfied with the effort Pallett

has put in so far.

“She’s engaged in wanting to

do the right thing, and has given

us a verbal commitment that it

would get done right away,” said

Cartwright.

“It’s not a case of Labour vs

National – safety and community

involvement is a bipartisan

activity.”

My client’s brief to the architect, William Trengrove, was very clear - a timeless

home that while stylish was also easy to live in. A successful collaboration

resulted in this lovely home situated on the desirable lower slopes of Cashmere.

The home is thoughtfully planned, with interconnecting living rooms all leading

onto an ideal outdoor living space which can be accessed from both living

rooms and the main bedroom.

The generous main bedroom, with its own ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, is on

the same level as the living space - so often wanted by a homeowner, but not

often found.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, with large wardrobes and a family

bathroom. Beautifully landscaped gardens complete the picture, with easy

drive on access to the house and a picturesque view of our city.

Located within the Cashmere High & Cashmere Primary school zones and only a

short walk to the local cafe.

Environmental leadership

programme selects students

SIX CANTERBURY high

school students have been

chosen to represent the region

at a week-long environmental

leadership programme for

young New Zealanders.

Among hundreds of other

applicants, Villa Maria College

year 13 student Sarah Williams

was selected to take part in the

BLAKE Inspire programme.

Held from this week in Waikato,

the programme enables

70, year 11 to 13 students from

across the country to join other

like-minded young leaders for a

week of experiential learning.

Chief executive James Gibson

said it will help to unlock their

potential and kick-start their

journey to tackle environmental

issues to create a more sustainable

future.

“Environmental issues are

a priority for our rangatahi.

They’re very aware that their future

will be negatively impacted

if people don’t start responding

to challenges such as climate

change, biodiversity loss and the

decline of our marine health,

now,” he said.

“Whatever their culture,

school or background, BLAKE

Inspire brings together these

Sarah Williams

young, like-minded leaders to

create new connections and find

answers to pressing environmental

challenges.”

The programme is in partnership

with the Ministry for the

Environment.

Throughout the week, students

will interact with scientists, conservation

experts and business

leaders who are leading the way

with sustainability initiatives.

They will develop leadership

skills, have exposure to career

paths in their field of interest,

and will see real-world applications

of the subjects they learn.

Visiting places such as Raglan

Harbour, Sanctuary Mountain,

Waitomo Caves and an awardwinning

Waikato dairy farm

will be a learning curve on con-

James Gibson

servation, eco-tourism, sustainable

farming and environmental

sustainability.

MfE joint evidence, data and

insights group deputy secretary

Natasha Lewis said rangatahi

are growing up in a changing

world, where environmental

challenges and opportunities

are at the forefront of all key

choices.

Said Lewis: “Leaders today

need to be resilient, innovative

and able to respond to a

changing world. Young people

are often called the decisionmakers

of tomorrow, but our

rangatahi must be included in

the decision making of today,

because more than ever, those

decisions will impact the

Aotearoa they will inherit.”

COSY: Villa Maria College student leaders held a fundraiser

to buy warm pyjamas for children in need, which will be

donated to the Christchurch City Mission. ​

School project to keep

kids warm during winter

THE COOLER weather is

coming, and Villa Maria College

students are helping vulnerable

children stay warm this winter in

the form of cosy winter pyjamas.

The student leaders, led by head

girl Melissa Dunn, decided to

hold a mufti day last week, with

students donating a gold coin to

take part.

More than $1400 was raised on

the day, with every cent going towards

the purchase of new winter

pyjamas in a range of children’s

sizes.

The pyjamas will be donated to

the Christchurch City Mission,

to be added to food parcels for

families in need across the city.

“We recognise that for some

families, the cost of new winter

pyjamas for their children is

more than they can afford, and

we can’t imagine not being warm

and cosy in bed through the

colder months,” said Melissa.

“It was fantastic to see so

many enthusiastic students

donating to such a good cause,

and we will be able to buy over

a hundred sets of brand-new

winter pyjamas, in various sizes,

for the City Mission to distribute

to families in need.”

A reader responds to a

proposal to close two

Metro bus lounges on

Riccarton Rd

Bright colours signify festive

When I heard about the city

council’s proposal to do this, I

was horrified.

The one on the south side of

Riccarton Rd is particularly

well-used and is very important

for those who have to wait to

change buses.

This can be for as long as

30min – or more. There are

no seats available on that side

of the road and it can be very

trying, especially for older bus

users.

Waiting on the street in

winter is really hazardous to

health. The lounge is bright,

comfortable, has toilets, upto-date

bus information and a

small cafe.

In addition, there is often a

friendly security guard in the

vicinity. This seems to have

sorted the unsavoury elements

of recent times.

Whatever the costs of

running of the bus lounge,

it is in the best interests of

ratepayers to maintain the

service.

I will also be making a

submission to the Long Term

Plan proposals and I hope that

many of your readers will do the

same.

Hornby Primary edged out St Bernadette’s 4-2 to take third placing

at the annual year 5 and 6 Canterbury primary schools rugby

league tournament at South Hagley Park last week.

Canterbury Rugby League development officer Dom Tola said a

number of pupils got their first taste of the sport at the tournament,

which was timed to lead into the club season.

He said it provided a great opportunity for those new to rugby

league to give it a try before deciding whether or not to sign up with

a local club.

Te Waka Unua School (Woolston) beat Rolleston Primary School

3-0 in the final.

planet – then it’s good for the WEA.

On a busy day we can have up to eight

LEST WE FORGET

ANZAC DAY

SUNDAY APRIL 25, 2021

Remembering our Anzacs

“The darkness, calm and chill of the early morning;

the sound of the single tap of the drum of the parade;

the emotionless faces of the catafalque guard, and

the mournful notes of Last Post sounded by a lone

bugler, combine to give a feeling of deep solemnity. It

is the intensity of the symbolism which contributes to

its powerful impact upon participants; indeed what

underlies its popularity. In a country with few public

rituals, the Dawn Service continues to provide a sense of

occasion as a meaningful ritual of remembrance.”

rsa.org.nz

Every year Anzac Day is observed on April 25 by

communities throughout New Zealand and Australia to

remember those who have served and those who lost

their lives in war. The term ANZAC is the acronym for

Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and was first

used in World War 1. These groups of soldiers back then

were known as ‘the Anzacs’.

Anzac commemorations may consist of one or more

ceremonies – one at dawn (timed to coincide with the

initial landings at Gallipoli by Australian troops who were

the first ashore) and/or one later in the morning. The

ceremonies are rich in tradition and generally begin with

a parade of returned servicemen and military personnel

followed by cadets, youth groups and local dignitaries.

War veterans, proudly sporting their medals lead the

parade, which leads to a local cenotaph or memorial gate

where the ceremony includes a service with hymns, laying

of wreaths, dedications, prayers and the Last Post played

on a bugle. Morning tea follows and allows people to share

memories and catch up with friends and neighbours.

Anzac Day was first observed by servicemen in 1916 to

mark the anniversary of New Zealand and Australian

soldiers landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. It soon

became a day where all New Zealanders and Australians

took time to remember the men and women who

perished in the Great War. In 1921, Anzac Day became an

official holiday and by 1922 it was declared a full public

holiday where shops, banks and hotels remained closed

for the day.

Symbol of remembrance

The red (or Flanders) poppy is a symbol of remembrance

and hope all over the world and, in some countries, is

worn on Armistice Day, however in New Zealand the red

poppy is commonly worn on Anzac Day. The first Poppy

Day appeal was on April 24 in 1922, where funds from

the sales of small and large silk poppies helped relieve

suffering in war-ravaged northern France. A paper version

of the poppy is now sold by the Royal New Zealand

Returned Services Association on Poppy Day to raise

awareness for Anzac Day and funds for returned soldiers

and their families and local communities.
