Cranes carry



• From page 1

The folding of paper cranes

stems from a young girl, Sadako

Sasaki, who survived the atomic

explosion in Hiroshima but was

later diagnosed with leukaemia

from the radiation.

While in hospital, a fellow

patient told her about the legend

of the cranes – that anyone who

folds 1000 cranes will be granted

a wish.

So Sadako set about folding

paper cranes, making more

than 1000 by the time she died,

aged 12.

Marian College pastoral

chaplain Olivia Shimasaki said

students had folded 650 cranes in

the space of two days, and hoped

to have 1000, if not 2000, folded

by the deadline.

“This year our school is focusing

on how we can ‘take courage’.

The young people who receive

wishes from the Make-A-Wish

Foundation show great courage,

therefore we are proud to be

supporting them and the Paper

Crane Project,” she said.

“Our students have taken this

opportunity with passion and

determination, showing the difference

we can make when we

work together.”

School Update

Manukura Kōrero

Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi

With your basket and my basket the people will live

Kia Ora Koutou Katoa, ngā mihinui ki te

whānau o Haeata. At the end of Term

1 I celebrated five terms at Haeata as

Manukura. It seems like such a cliché to

say the time has flown, but it certainly has.

I am very proud to lead Haeata and to

be part of a team that has achieved some

outstanding things for our ākonga and

whānau over that time. I am grateful that the

Haeata Board and the Ministry of Education

have provided funding to assist us to run the

following projects, each one focussed on

raising ākonga achievement and success at all

levels in our kura;.

• Evaluation & Associates - Kaimahi/Staff

Professional Learning for Best Practice

• Motivationz - Mentoring Programme for

Senior Ākonga Engagement

• He Korowai Manaaki - Managing Ākonga

Behaviour Positively

• Te Ara Mōkihi - Te Hokinga Mai -

Ākonga Re-engagement

Our student achievement data continues

to challenge us as a kura. To be honest

with you whānau, it is not where I would

like it to be. Don’t get me wrong, we

have many ākonga doing amazing things

and achieving excellent results across the

curriculum and in NCEA here at Haeata.

Our ākonga are talented, bright, dedicated

and full of potential. However, what we

do have to own as a kura is the fact that

some ākonga are not reaching their true

potential, and are not choosing to be the

best version of themselves.”

What stops some ākonga from reaching

their true potential is their lack of

engagement and their lack of regular


Part of our “Haeata Reset” is being honest

about that and then ensuring we focus

on targeted strategies to raise ākonga

achievement. We all have a part to play in

raising academic achievement and success

rates of all ākonga attending Haeata.

As a kura I am confident that we can

demonstrate a commitment to excellence,

to our ākonga and to you as whānau. I am

confident that together, as kura and as

whānau, we agree that all ākonga must:

•Attend Regularly

• Behave Well

• Respect Our Environment

• Focus on Performance

• Wear Correct Uniform.

It is my experience that

sometimes 21st Century youth

culture finds it hard to understand

the concept of “who is in charge,”

because they think they are! I will

finish here with a quote from Chief Youth

Court Judge, Andrew Beecroft, who clearly

articulates his view about“who’s in charge.”

Judge Beecroft believes our tamariki/

children are our greatest asset as a country.

However, he did qualify that when he

warned his audience that our young people

run the risk of failing to achieve their

full potential because we as adults don’t

expect enough of them and we let them

get away with far too much. Judge Beecroft


“Always we hear the cry from the

teenagers, “What can we do, where can

we go?” My answer is, “Go home! Mow

the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook,

build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study

your lessons. And after you’ve finished,

read a book.

Your town

does not owe

you recreation

facilities; your

parents do not

owe you fun. The

world does not owe

you a living. You owe the

world something. You owe it your time,

energy and talent, so that no-one will be

at war, in poverty or sick and lonely again.

In other words, grow up, stop being a cry

baby, get out of your dream-world and

develop a backbone not a wishbone. Start

behaving like a responsible person. You are

important and you are needed. It’s too late

to sit around and wait for somebody to do

something someday. Someday is now and

that somebody is you.”

My wero to our ākonga is, “if not you,


Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui.

Hospitality pathway

Hikuawa Hikohiko (Clubs)

It is a very exciting challenge to be able to align

hospitality assessments with catering events at Haeata.

Consequently, in doing so, our akonga get authentic

learning experiences in our amazing commercial

Recently we held a belated Mother’s Day menu and

this was attended by many of our Haeata whanau.

The assessment was the Level Two Unit Standard

29569, (Prepare equipment and cook kai with liquid

did an exemplary job. We served a veritable feast

consisting of chicken roulade stuffed with spinach and

roast capsicum, coconut poached fish, and shaksuska

with whipped feta and pita bread, for mains. All this,

closely followed by caramel pears, moccachino trifle

or poached meringue on a pool of sauce anglaise.

Not only did our hospitality students prepare and

cook all this magnificent food, some were then

further volunteered into serving it to our esteemed


I was so proud of the students who took part in this

assessment and I would wholeheartedly encourage

them to pursue a career in hospitality as they were all

absolute stars. The following students are to be highly

Now we all look forward to our next catering

occasion and sincerely hope to see you there!

out of plastic bottles ready to launch.

2. Art-learning techniques for pencil sketching and building up

an art portfolio each.

3. Code Club- using programmes like Scratch and Python.

Blue room gets new home at florist business

• By Samantha Mythen

TRANSFERRED by road at

4.30am on May 14 and lifted on

site via two cranes and the help

of 20 contractors, the blue room

– once used as the Mt Pleasant

Community Centre – has found

its new home.

It now sits among the fields of

flowers at Aromaunga Baxters

Flowers in Heathcote.

The Baxter family, who have

owned the florist business for 40

years, bought the blue room from

the city council.

After the February 22, 2011,

earthquake destroyed the Mt

Pleasant Community Centre, a

temporary building was set up in

its place – it’s blue walls giving it

the name of blue room. Because a

new community centre has since

been built, the blue room is no

longer needed.

John Baxter said they purchased

the building as their

business is expanding and they

needed more shed space.

The blue room will now we

used for flower processing, where

the picked flowers are trimmed

and bunched for their shop and

at markets.

“We’re excited to have the blue

room here,” Baxter said.

“It has a lot of history.”

Baxter said when he and one of

his brothers Mike went to view

the blue room before purchasing

it, he could already picture it being

on site in Heathcote.

“It was a little building that

needed a home,” he said.

Said Mt Pleasant Community

Centre president Rebekah Mc-

Cullough said: “ We’re thrilled

the blue room has gone there and

it’s wonderful it can still be a part

of our extended community.

“We are pleased they can use

the room and that they appreciate

its history.”

Said market and centre coordinator

Di Richardson: “We

are so delighted it has gone to

a good home and is still in the


Baxter joked that although the

space was needed for their flower

processing, he loved table tennis,

and the space looked perfect for

setting up a table tennis tournament.

“We’ll see what happens,” he


Baxter and his two brothers,

Mike and Richard – ‘the Baxter

boys’ – run and own the florist.

Did you know that healthy trees can add

up to 20% to the value of your property?

You may not think about it

that often – but the trees on

your property are a lifetime


Carefully selected trees on your property

provide more than beauty - they increase

the value of your home. Several recent

surveys have shown that mature trees in

a well-landscaped garden can increase

the value of a house by 7 per cent to

19 per cent.

Experts indicate that a well-maintained

garden with mature trees can add

thousands to a home’s value and speed up

a house sale too.

In addition to adding significant value

at the point of sale, trees also serve very

practical and functional (as well as

aesthetic) purposes for homeowners. They

frame beautiful, relaxing, and pleasant

landscapes and help keep a house cooler

and protected from destructive winds and


Many tree care companies simply chop,

cut, and call the job done. However, after

speaking with THE TREE PEOPLE, it

quickly became apparent that they are

different. Simply put, they know your

home is your haven and will always ensure

it is treated that way.

Started by Ra and Megan Hammer in

2004, THE TREE PEOPLE knew early on

that their ethos and approach was going to

be different. They never simply chop and

cut, and instead pride themselves on the

fact that they go against the grain of how

many other arborists operate. They can

help with any tree and pride themselves on

being able to do so. They can remove large

dangerous trees safely, look after the trees

that you care about, transplant established

trees with care and offer expert advice on

all ‘things’ trees.

Speaking with passion about what he

does, chief tree hugger Ra Hammer shares,

“We had some very clear goals when we

started the business that we still ‘live by’

today. It was important to us to preserve

and maintain trees sustainably, to provide

an environment that helps our customers

to enjoy harmonious relationships with

their trees, to offer excellent affordable tree

care and to always adhere to best practice.

I am proud to say that, 16 years later, we

still live and breathe these goals”.

To remove those dangerous trees,

hard to reach over hanging branches

and to add value to your property, call

Prepare your

home for winter

Buy — sell — reside with

peace of mind

Any property, old or new, can have

hidden problems. It is important to know

the true condition of your current, or

potential property.

An AA House Check report can provide

you with the confidence to buy or sell with

no surprises.

Property examinations provide detailed

room by room inspections, including

roof cavity, insulation, flooring, electrical,

plumbing, drainage, hot water systems,

roofing, decks, paths and driveways,

garages, asbestos identification and more.

A BOINZ accredited building surveyor

can also carry out moisture checks,

residential foundation inspections,

earthquake damage repair assessments and

methamphetamine testing.

Serving Canterbury homeowners,

landlords and prospective home buyers for

over 15 years AA House Checks have your

house inspection needs covered.
