Beachfront apartments

closer to being built

• By Samantha Mythen

THE CONTROVERSIAL

Sumner apartments may be one

step closer to being built.

Marriner

Developments

Ltd part

owner Shane

Kennedy, who is

developing the

Marriner St site,

has met with

Shane

Kennedy

the city council

in recent weeks

over more

information

needed for a resource consent

application.

A resource consent was

submitted in December last year,

and further information was

requested by the city council in

February.

The maximum height of

buildings under the Sumner

Master Plan is 13m. The

proposed new apartment is

about 16.45m in height.

Marriner Developments has

acknowledged in the resource

content application that it is a

non-compliant activity because

of the height.

NEWS

THE ARTIST’S impression

of the planned apartments in

Sumner looks great (see

page 1).

We reveal today the latest

step in the long-running

saga over the apartments,

which were wrecked in the

earthquakes.

Marriner Developments

Ltd wants to put up eight

apartments, and a wine bar on

the ground floor.

A sticking point is the height

of the complex – it is higher

than the Sumner Master

Plan allows for. That won’t be

the be-all-and-end-all as to

whether a resource consent

gets over the line. But it will

be a point any objectors to the

development could use to try

and stop it.

The apartment complex

looks like a great asset for

Sumner. Time will tell whether

it gets over the line.

Bid to remove graffiti from museum

• By Samantha Mythen

WORK TO remove graffiti

covering the Torpedo Boat

Museum in Lyttelton will start

today, weather dependent, after

10 complaints were received this

year by the city council.

Resident Dudley Jackson said

he had complained to the city

council several times this year

and had been told the graffiti

would be removed months ago.

City council

spokesman

Wolfgang Bopp

said the council

met with a

contractor last

week to discuss

Wolfgang

Bopp

removing

the extensive

amount of

graffiti.

“A combination of staffing and

contractor availability, as well as

the specialised training required

for this type of graffiti removal,

has led to the delay in sorting

this particular site,” he said.

It took six months and numerous

continued complaints for an

“apocalyptic” graffiti poem on

the historic Lyttelton Gaol wall

to be removed.

The delay was because of similar

reasons, the city council said.

Lyttelton artist River Jayden

has suggested creating a mural

on the wall to hopefully deter

future graffiti work.

However, due to the historic

nature of the building, Bopp

said an option like that was not

usually supported.

“Visual obtrusiveness

and impact on the external

appearance of a heritage

building, potential damage

from paint on the fabric, and

it possibly viewed as adverts/

messages are some of the

concerns,” he said.

VANDALISM: The Torpedo Boat Museum has been covered in graffiti for months.

Weather dependant, the graffiti will be removed from today. PHOTO: DUDLEY JACKSON

The old powder magazine

building hosts sections of

Torpedo Boat No. 168, Defender.

In 1885, the British Empire

expected a war with the Russian

Empire, after Russia had

captured the Panjdeh region – in

what is now Turkmenistan – in

March 1885.

All naval vessels across the

British Empire were ordered

to standby for deployment,

including the Defender, a 2nd

class Thornycroft spar torpedo

boat.

The boat shed that housed the

Defender was constructed in

1874.

The latest city council “Graffiti

Snapshot” on the Banks

Peninsula has increased in the

last two months.

Thirteen tickets for graffiti

removal were issued in May

compared to 27 tickets issued

in June.

The Nine

The True Story of a Band of Women Who Survived the Worst of

Nazi Germany by Gwen Strauss

The Nine follows the true story of the author’s great aunt Hélène Podliasky, who led a band

of nine female resistance fighters as they escaped a German forced labor camp and made a

ten-day journey across the front lines of WWII from Germany back to Paris.

The nine women were all under thirty when they joined the resistance. They smuggled arms

through Europe, harbored parachuting agents, coordinated communications between regional

sectors, trekked escape routes to Spain and hid Jewish children in scattered apartments. They

were arrested by French police, interrogated and tortured by the Gestapo. They were subjected to

a series of French prisons and deported to Germany. The group formed along the way, meeting

at different points, in prison, in transit, and at Ravensbrück. By the time they were enslaved

at the labor camp in Leipzig, they were a close-knit group of friends. During the final days of

the war, forced onto a death march, the nine chose their moment and made a daring escape.

Drawing on incredible research, this powerful, heart-stopping narrative from Gwen Strauss is

a moving tribute to the power of humanity and friendship in the darkest of times.

House of Kwa

Wild Swans meets educated in this riveting true story spanning

four generations by Mimi Kwa

Mimi Kwa ignored the letter for days. When she finally opened it, the news was so shocking

her hair turned grey. Why would a father sue his own daughter? The collision was over the

estate of Mimi’s beloved Aunt Theresa, but its seed had been sown long ago. In an attempt to

understand how it had come to this, Mimi unspools her rich family history in House of Kwa.

One of a wealthy silk merchant’s 32 children, Mimi’s father, Francis, was just a little boy when

the Kwa family became caught up in the brutal and devastating Japanese occupation of

Hong Kong during World War II. Years later, he was sent to study in Australia by his now

independent and successful older sister Theresa. There he met and married Mimi’s mother,

a nineteen-year-old with an undiagnosed, chronic mental illness. Soon after, ‘tiger’ Mimi

arrived, and her struggle with the past - and the dragon - began ... Riveting, colourful and

often darkly humorous, House of Kwa is an epic family drama spanning four generations, and

an unforgettable story about how one woman finds the courage to stand up for her freedom

and independence, squaring off against the ghosts of the past and finally putting them to rest.

True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee

by Abraham riesman

Stan Lee—born Stanley Martin Lieber in 1922—was one of the most beloved and influential

entertainers to emerge from the twentieth century. He served as head editor of Marvel for three

decades and, in that time, launched more pieces of internationally recognizable intellectual

property than anyone other than Walt Disney: Spider-Man, the Avengers, the X-Men, Black

Panther, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor . . . the list seems to never end. On top of that,

his carnival-barker marketing prowess more or less single-handedly saved the comic-book

industry and superhero fiction. Without him, the global entertainment industry would be

wildly different—and a great deal poorer. But Lee’s unprecedented career was also filled with

spectacular failures, controversy, and bitter disputes. Lee was dogged by accusations over

who really created Marvel’s signature characters—for whom Lee had always been suspected

of taking more than his proper share of credit. A major business venture, Stan Lee Media,

resulted in stock manipulation, bankruptcy, and criminal charges. And in his final years, after

the death of his beloved wife, Joan, rumors swirled that Lee was a virtual prisoner in his own

home, beset by abusive grifters and issuing cryptic video recordings as a battle to control his

fortune and legacy ensued.

A Runner’s High

by dean Karnazes

The iconic superhuman endurance runner embarks on his toughest challenge yet-the Western

States 100-offering insights into why running is so challenging and rewarding.

Dean Karnazes has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits, from running in the

shoe-melting heat of Death Valley to the lung-freezing cold of the South Pole. He’s raced and

competed across the globe and once ran 50 marathons, in 50 states, in 50 consecutive days.

In A Runner’s High, Karnazes chronicles his return to the Western States 100-Mile Endurance

Run in his mid-fifties after first completing the race decades ago. The Western States, infamous

for its rugged terrain and extreme temperatures, becomes the most demanding competition

of his life, a physical and emotional reckoning and a battle to stay true to one’s purpose.

Confronting his age, wearying body, career path and life choices, we see Karnazes as we

never have before, raw and exposed. A Runner’s High is both an endorphin-fuelled page-turner

and a love letter to the sport from one of its most celebrated ambassadors.

Ethel Rosenberg: A Cold War Tragedy

by Anne Sebba

Ethel Rosenberg’s story has been called America’s Dreyfus Affair: a catastrophic failure of

humanity and justice that continues to haunt the national conscience, and is still being played

out with different actors in the lead roles today.

On 19th June 1953 Ethel Rosenberg became the first woman in the US to be executed for a

crime other than murder. She was thirty-seven years old and the mother of two small children.

Yet even today, at a time when the Cold War seems all too resonant, Ethel’s conviction for

conspiracy to commit espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union makes her story still controversial.

This is an important moment to recount not simply what FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover called

the ‘trial of the century’, but also a timeless human story of a supportive wife, loving mother

and courageous idealist who grew up during the Depression with aspirations to become an

opera singer. Instead, she found herself battling the social mores of the 1950s and had her

life barbarically cut short on the basis of tainted evidence for a crime she almost certainly did

not commit. Ethel’s tragic story lays bare a nation deeply divided and reveals what happens

when a government motivated by fear tramples on the rights of its citizens.

• By Samantha Mythen

HEATHCOTE residents have

slept soundly for the past few

mornings now Tony the rooster

has been captured.

Last Tuesday, a “pretty vicious

looking” rooster suddenly appeared

in Jeremy McTear and his

family’s backyard.

“He was

rather large and

confident and

very quickly

made himself at

home, digging

up the lawn and

hiding in the

bushes,” McTear

said.

“He was all feather, talons

and large beak with a bright red

comb.”

The family’s “guard” dog, Ziggy,

who patrolled the garden, was

out of action recovering from

surgery.

Over the next few days, Mc-

Tear and his sons, Oliver, Jamie

and Leon, attempted to catch

Tony.

However, he was quite the

escape artist and at each attempt,

he managed to flee and fly over

a fence to terrorise their neighbour.

“He was incredibly quick and

able to escape through gaps that

seemed impossibly small,” said

McTear.

“An hour or two later he’d appear

at the door or window and

taunt us or the dog. Sometimes

he’d just sit in the neighbour’s

gutter and glare.”

Ziggy eventually took an

interest, but only to “wandering”

over to see what all the fuss was

about. At seeing the rooster, Ziggy

chickened out from his guard

dog duties.

They posted on the

community Facebook page,

attempting to find Tony’s family,

but to no avail.

Tony had decided his new

home was in their backyard.

Each morning last week, Tony

rudely woke the family and

neighbours up at 5.20am, crowing,

said McTear.

Tony was finally captured on

Thursday, when McTear, his

wife Tina and three sons armed

themselves with blankets, fishing

nets, bread and a cat carry cage.

TEAM EFFORT: (From

left) – Oliver, Jamie and

Leon successfully captured

Tony, a rooster that was

terrorising the family’s

backyard.

“It was a team effort (chase),”

McTear said.

Afterwards, with Tony safely

secured in the cat cage, McTear

said he was either in shock or

playing dead.

But he soon perked up

when being transported to the

SPCA, joining Simon, a chicken.

“Staff said he was quite

grumpy on arrival.”

McTear said his sons asked for

KFC on the way home.

“We didn’t have a problem

with that,” he said.

“On Friday we all had a great

sleep in.”

Tony will be put up for

adoption this week.

Four Square

opening

date set

• By Samantha Mythen

THE FOUR Square will open

in the new Church Bay retail

development on August 10.

Owners Laura Palmer and

James Grant, who also run On

The Spot, said they had been

working for nearly four years to

open the store.

“It was always our goal to get

a Four Square here and for it to

finally happen is so exciting,” said

Grant.

“Yes, it’s daunting, yes, we’re

nervous, but the excitement absolutely

overcomes this. The shop

is starting to finally look like a

supermarket.”

A spokesperson for Spence

Developments, which own the

buildings, said the Four Square

will be the most modern in the

South Island.

The supermarket is one of six

tenancies in the Church Bay

development.

A cafe design is being developed

for the last area and 80 per

cent of the landscaping has been

completed.

“Final car park works are under

way with lighting poles put up late

last week,” said the spokesperson.

“Footpaths have received

asphalt and the car park will also

be completed this week, weather

permitting.”

• By Samantha Mythen

THE SUMNER Community

Residents’ Association is worried

new ward boundaries will mean

coastal suburbs facing similar

coastal hazard adaptation issues

will be unable to work together

efficiently.

In light of the city council’s

representation review, the

Heathcote Ward, including

Sumner and Redcliffs, will be

merged into Spreydon-Cashmere

for the 2022 election.

The residents’

association is

concerned about

the move, as the

new ward does

not face “similar

Charlie

Hudson

vulnerabilities of

coastal issues,”

said Sumner Hub

co-ordinator

Charlie Hudson.

It has written to Linwood-Central-Heathcote

chairwoman

Alexandra Davids to highlight

the concerns.

“We have asked them to assist

the coastal wards to have a platform

to come together to discuss

and respond to upcoming city

council and government advice,”

said Hudson.

It is hoped the community

board will request a collaborative

platform where coastal wards

can “come together to share ideas,

concerns and resources.”

The residents’ association

would like this platform to be

set up prior to the city council’s

working group recommendations

on coastal hazards and advice

being released later this year.

It would mean representatives

could better interpret the issues

and relay them clearly to their

communities, said Hudson.

Hudson said it is important

and necessary the coastal communities

have a united voice.

“Hopefully, this will balance

our move into the Cashmere-Spreydon

Ward, which will

not be as affected,” she said.

Davids said she had yet to

discuss the idea with the community

board but thought it was

fantastic.

“Obviously different communities

in coastal areas are dealing

with the same issues and having

a platform for them to come together

and discuss would be very

meaningful,” she said.

The idea will be discussed

at the next community board

meeting in August.

Redcliffs Residents’ Association

Secretary Pat McIntosh said

they had supported the amalgamation

rather than establishing a

coastal board.

“Most Redcliffs people feel

an affinity with the corridor in

and out of town as we are all at

the foot of the Port Hills,” said

McIntosh.

However, she said the residents’

association had not yet

discussed the Sumner Community

Residents’ Association

coastal ward platform idea.

The Sumner residents’ association

had raised its concerns

about the Heathcote Ward being

separated from other coastal

wards during consultations on

the representation review.

The review was adopted by the

city council on June 18 and was

open to appeals and objections

from June 25 to July 26.

Eight apartments and

a wine bar planned

• From page 1

The company will need to show

that there will only be minor adverse

environmental effects or that the activity

will not be contrary to the objectives of the

relevant plan.

The apartments will be built on what

was formerly known as the Cave Rock

apartment complex, which was badly

damaged in the earthquakes.

A long battle followed between the

owners of the 49 apartments and an onsite

tavern with their insurer. Then there was

more conflict over how to divide the $21

million payout among apartment owners.

That dispute was eventually settled in

the High Court in 2019.

Kennedy would not say how long his

company had owned the site.

The city council requested numerous

information for the resource consent

application, including issues related to

flood hazards, zone-specific noise rules,

sensitive activities near roads and railways,

outdoor lighting, signs, minimum number

of car park and cycle parking rules,

manoeuvring for parking and loading

areas, access design, earthworks, Ngāi

Tahu values and the natural environment,

and building height.

Kennedy said is currently working on

finalising a response to the city council. A

date to hear the resource consent has not

been set.

He was hopeful building would start

this year.

“The apartment will be built at the

entrance to Sumner and it’s a statement

point,” said Kennedy.

“The whole area was previously

downgraded and old, it will be nice to

give Sumner what it deserves with this

new build.”

The proposed build will be four levels,

comprised of eight units and a wine bar on

the ground floor.

Kennedy has lived in Sumner for

two years. He is planning to retain an

apartment for himself.

The apartment building design has

drawn some criticism on the Sumner

Community Facebook page.

Kennedy said he had received mostly

positive feedback, but understood people

had different opinions.

“If we all built the same house, Sumner

would all be the same and that would be

boring,” he said.

“I didn’t expect everyone to like it.”

Most negative comments focused on the

height of the proposed apartments. The

application site is zoned under the District

Plan as residential medium density,

with predominately two or three story

buildings.

Other people commented that they were

just happy something was being built.

A city council spokesperson said

the owners had yet to formally finalise

their response to the request for further

information in regard to the resource

consent.

“Once this is received, it will be fully

assessed and a recommendation made in

relation to notification,” they said.

There are a variety of shapes and sizes

you can make, and they’re easy as to

and plants that grow slowly work best.

Small succulents, cacti, and air plants are

perfect for dry terrariums.

Most indoor plants love high

your indoor plants once a week to

create a humid environment. This

helps avoid brown tips on leaves

Avoid using icy cold water when

watering your houseplants through

winter. Either mix a small amount of

warm water in to create tepid water or

leave your water out for a few hours

before using. Most houseplants come

from the tropics where it is much warmer

& using cold water can shock the plants

causing damage to roots & the leaves.

Shopping for stranded seafarers

DELIVERY

DRIVERS: Sailors

stuck on ships

are giving the

Lyttelton Seafarers’

Centre about

$10,000 each

month to shop for

them.

PHOTO: NZ

HERALD

• By Samantha Mythen

THE NEW Uber Eats.

That’s how Lyttelton Seafarers’

Centre chaplain Reverend John

McLister describes the centre,

which is delivering up to $10,000

of groceries and personal items

to sailors stuck on ships in the

port each

month.

All fully

vaccinated

and wearing

personal

protective

equipment,

McLister

and his

John McLister

helpers

provide the

ships with

Wi-Fi and SIM cards, assisting

the seafarers to contact friends

and family back home.

Last month, they visited 45

stores to meet the shopping

requests.

Common personal items they

buy include toothpaste, vitamins

and supplements, and souvenirs.

The most popular items

are Whitakers and Cadbury

chocolate bars.

Another regular request is for

PlayStations and video games.

The most oddball request was

for a portable swimming pool,

because the seafarers were bored,

said McLister.

The seafarers’ centre does

not buy alcohol or cigarettes.

However, it does stop off for

takeaway orders such as pizza.

“They just want a treat,” said

McLister.

Before Covid-19, seafarers

would come ashore for rest and

recuperation.

However, border controls now

restrict entry for most sailors.

Those who are exempt from

the border restriction are those

who have been on a boat that

has taken 14 days to get to New

Zealand. Once here, they are

given a Covid-19 test and if that

comes back all clear, they can

disembark.

Due to border closures around

the world, McLister said many

seafarers have been stuck on

ships for up to 12 months.

“Most seafarers are unable

to come off their boats and all

the things they used to do, they

are no longer able too,” said

McLister.

That is where the seafarers’

centre comes in.

In June, there were 61 foreign

ships that docked at port, and

the seafarers’ centre visited those

ships 84 different times.

From June 2020 to April this

year, more than $100,000 was

received for shopping requests,

and the 638 ships in port during

that period were visited 888

times by the seafarers’ centre.

McLister also offers pastoral

care for the seafarers, chatting

about problems and concerns.

In May 2020, the Government

determined seafarers’ welfare

supporters, such as chaplains,

were essential workers.

Lyttelton was the first port

where a seafarers’ centre was able

to visit ships.

“Lyttelton became a model for

other New Zealand ports,” said

McLister.

“The Government realised we

needed funding, which was a

big win.”

McLister is proud of the

work the Lyttelton Seafarers’

Centre does.

“These people keep New

Zealand alive. Giving [the

seafarers] a warm welcome can

help to alleviate some of the

immense mental pressure they

face.”

The efforts are greatly

appreciated by those on the

ships.

M.V Erisort captain C.M.

Ranaweera wrote to the New

Zealand seafarers’ centres

to express his and his crews’

gratitude for them “going that

extra mile.”

“Lyttelton is a port town,

founded on people who live

and work at sea. Most Lyttelton

people know someone in the

past or present who has done

so. Helping is part of Lyttelton’s

DNA,” said McLister.

“This is a natural response of

being in a port town.

“It would be a shame if it

was forgotten.”

Urumau track upgrades approved

UPGRADES: The diagonal track’s official approval means it can

now be upgraded for better-shared use by both mountain

bikers and walkers.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Samantha Mythen

THE DIAGONAL track in

Urumau Reserve has been

approved after almost three

years of campaigning by the

Lyttleton Mountain

Bike Club.

Joshua Merriam,

on behalf of the club,

initially requested

the Banks Peninsula

Community Board

approve the track

upgrades at the

reserve entrance

during a meeting in

March.

The board then

requested a report

from city council on

whether there were

enough resources to improve

the track.

On Monday, the community

board discussed the report,

Joshua Merriam

and unanimously approved the

track. Said Merriam: “I am

very glad this was approved

and it can move forward

with the city council rangers

handling it.”

Board chairwoman

Tori Peden said it was

good to finally move

forward with the

track and she hoped

it would receive the

upgrades by late spring

or early summer.

The track in

question is a

component of the 2018

Urumau Development

Plan. After the plan

was passed, city

council staff had put

aside money and

resources for the track to

become official.

However, no progress had

been made since then to

approve the access track into

the reserve.

Instead, it was still classified

as a “proposed track,” in

spite of being used by both

mountain bikers and walkers

to access the track.

Inaction from discussions

with the Lyttelton management

reserves committee had

prompted Merriam to take

this project to the community

board, including a petition

with more than 100 signatures

in favour of formalising the

entire track.

The reserves committee

opposed the track’s

formalisation, saying it had

other priorities for track

development and improving

the diagonal track would

distract them from other work.

Merriam said there was still

work to do on formalising the

second half of the track.

Birdlife to benefit from saltmarsh regen

• By Samantha Mythen

MORE THAN 2000 bushes are

being planted in a bid to restore

the Tunnel Rd saltmarsh.

The habitat restoration

project is situated in the area

alongside the Heathcote River,

immediately downstream of the

Tunnel Rd bridge.

City council parks biodiversity

and regional parks ranger teams

are working with the Ferrymead

Heathcote saltmarsh group,

which comprises of residents and

interested people.

The area had been partially

filled in decades ago due to

construction of the motorway,

and then by earthquake

liquefaction.

More than half a hectare was

burnt as a result of arson attacks.

City council ecologist Andrew

Crossland said excavation and

new planting will enable the

shallow inflow of tidal water to

regenerate saltmarsh vegetation

and enable self-colonisation of

marsh plants over the burnt

KEEN VOLUNTEERS: Ferrymead and Heathcote residents helping to regenerate the saltmarsh.

ground.

Pied stilts, white-faced

herons, marsh crake and the

nationally critically endangered

Australasian bittern are native

bird life that will benefit from

the habitat restoration.

“Habitat restoration projects

like this in locations where

the tide can reach is the only

way we can preserve and

protect our estuaries and the

internationally significant bird

populations they support,”

said Crossland.

The latest planting day was

earlier this month, with more

than 800 plants put in.

An initial planting day

was held in April, which was

attended by about 15 volunteers

who planted about 180 native

shrubs and grasses.

Future working bees will

meet regularly to continue

the work that has been

started.

Treasures

from the

past

HMAS Sydney (D48) at Lyttelton in 1946

PHOTO: Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum

collection


HMS TERRIBLE was one of

six majestic class light aircraft

carriers commissioned for the

British Royal Navy during World

War 2.

Laid down in 1943, launched

late 1944, she was too late for war

service.

Acquired by the Royal Australian

Navy in 1948, she was

renamed His Majesty’s Australian

Ship Sydney (III) in honour of

the light cruiser HMAS Sydney

(II) that sank in 1941 with the

tragic loss of all aboard.

HMAS Sydney (III) finally

sailed from Devonport in the

UK in early 1949, bound for

Australia with a complement of

Hawker Sea Furies on board.

HMAS Sydney visited New

Zealand several times over the

next two decades, although the

photograph shown here, docked

at Lyttelton Port, is somewhat

ambiguous as to the date.

The reverse of the photo

reads ‘17 G082 / HMAS Sydney

berthed at Lyttelton / (about

1946) / photographed by / F E

McGregor / Z236.’

The estimated year 1946 is

obviously too early as the carrier

remained in the UK until 1949.

However, if you look closely, the

planes on deck appear to be Sea

Furies, indicating she was in

active carrier service at the time.

Sydney’s first visit to New Zealand

was in February 1950, when

she called at Milford Sound,

Akaroa, Lyttelton and Wellington,

arriving in Auckland on

March 15.

The next recorded visit to

our shores was between March

and August 1953, but only to

Auckland on return from the

coronation of Queen Elizabeth

II, with representatives of all

three branches of the Australian

and New Zealand defence forces

on board.

Finally, it appears that it

was only after Sydney’s refit

as a training ship, minus Sea

Furies, that she returned to New

Zealand on her first training

cruise in May 1955.

In the years afterward, HMAS

Sydney trained in our fair waters

several times.

She also served as a troop

transporter, which included

transporting the first New

Zealand infantry force sent to

the Vietnam War in May 1967.

Decommissioned in 1973,

she was sold for scrap to South

Korea.

Given this brief history, it

would seem certain then that the

arrival in Lyttelton Port pictured

above would have to date from

sometime between February and

mid-March 1950.

Vashti Johnstone

Little River Gallery 31 July – 24 August

Vashti Johnstone is a contemporary New Zealand painter,

new to Little River Gallery, but not new to exhibiting. Living

and working on the South Island’s West Coast she has been

a student of visual language forever, formalising her innate

need to express and articulate with a Diploma in Painting,

Aoraki Polytechnic (2001)

Johnstones’s oeuvre applauds the vitality and importance

of making art. Respectful of and roused by the lineage of

creators who have gone before her and create alongside her,

she pushes her practice in energizing and innovative ways,

layering her charcoal and her paints into a colourful language

that transcends beyond words.

Echoing men and women known to Vashti, people who are

present and others who have gone before her, Authentic

Whisperings explores the tranquillity of people as they expose

their flaws and vulnerabilities to the light, attaining wisdom,

legitimacy and peace within the authenticity of their own skin.

Tobogganing on real snow captivated the youngsters at last year’s festival.

WHILE WE may be experiencing

a very chilly winter this year, that’s

all the more reason to get the

family together and head into the

city for this year’s Winter Festival

‘Chill in the City’.

Run by the Central City

Business Association with support

from the city council and many

of the city’s businesses, it follows

last year’s very successful event,

which attracted thousands to

the central city with a range of

exciting winter-themed events and

activities.

This year there will be even

more to enjoy, from ice skating,

hug a husky and Hagglund rides,

to Disney’s frozen bouncy castle,

tobogganing on real snow, and

Hillary’s Hutt VR Experience, all

taking place in and around the

City Mall area. Real-life winter

fairies will be there for the kids,

along with activities for everyone

to enjoy.

These include ice skating

starting tomorrow and running

right through the weekend, with

all other winter activities running

on Saturday and Sunday from

10am to 5pm daily.

There is a small donation cost

Hagglund rides should again prove a popular attraction at this year’s event.

Winter-themed festival offers family fun in the city

for some of the activities and all

money raised is being donated to

the Christchurch City Mission.

Last year’s festival raised just

over $12,000 and the business

association hopes with the

community coming in to support

the festival, it can do more this year.

While most of ‘Chill in the

City’ activities are aimed at

family enjoyment, Saturday night

offers something a little different,

with ‘Chill in the City’ After

Dark on New Regent St starting

early evening and featuring live

entertainment, mulled wine, hot

toddies and delicious food.

•Full details of Winter

Festival ‘Chill in the City’ can

be found on the website

Palisade makes all the right sounds

EVEN THOUGH my wife

entertains me with a piano

recital nearly every evening, I’m

not really into classical music,

nor am I a big fan of television

advertisements.

With a combination of those

two factors it’s a wonder then that

I spotted the clever advertisement

for Hyundai’s new sport utility

vehicle – the Palisade.

The advertisement goes

something like this – a group of

musicians playing instruments

slowly climb into the Palisade

demonstrating how spacious

it is on the inside. It’s a simple

message that illustrates perfectly

the capability of the Palisade, it is

a big vehicle – seven or eight seats

– all with armchair-like comfort.

Hyundai has made no secret

of its target market for Palisade,

it’s largely destined for theUnited

States where I would expect it

to sell very well. Downunder,

well that’s a different story, the

Palisade will only appeal to a

small number of buyers, those

who like big and are comfortable

driving something that stretches

to almost 5m and weighs over

two-tonne.

In New Zealand the Palisade

comes in five variants. If you

want eight seats then you have no

choice but to purchase the Elite,

it comes with either a 3.6-litre

petrol-powered V6 driving

through the front wheels, or an

all-wheel-drive model powered

by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel

engine. The Elite lists at $99,990

and $106,990respectively.

If you are satisfied with seven

seats, then Limited specification

is the model for you, the same

engine options are available and

you have got an extra choice of

nappa leather. The Limited V6

sits at $107,990, while the diesel

is priced at $114,990 (nappa adds

$5k). The evaluation car was the

latter, sans nappa.

It must be remembered both

engines are similar to those that

power one of Hyundai’s bestselling

models, the Santa Fe, and

whereas I expected the weight of

the Palisade to burden the diesel,

I’m happy to report that that is far

from the case. That is one of the

reasons why I’ve been so smitten

with the big four-potter over the

years, it’s largely a continuation

of the R-Series diesel that I have

a lot of affection for. It is strong,

smooth and silent and powers the

big Palisade with gusto.

Saying that, the Palisade is not

a vehicle that you should expect

to do things quickly, while it does

cover distance capably, it does so

with relaxed motion, it performs

in a subdued manner, and that

is the measure of a good vehicle,

something that carries out its

purpose without strain or fuss.

Hyundai rate the turbocharged

oil burner with 147kW and

HIGH COMFORT: The Palisade comes with the choice of

seven or eight seats.

HYUNDAI PALISADE LIMITED: Sport utility vehicle with large car luxury.

440Nm, both outputs realised

very low in the rev band (3800

and 1750rpm). It feels strong

beneath the accelerator, powerful

enough to surge to 100km/h in

9.5sec and will lunge through a

highway overtake in 6sec (80-

120km/h).

The engine is also rated with

a 7.3-litre per 100km combined

cycle fuel usage average. That’s

a bold claim and one that I

couldn’t replicate, however, my

evaluation average of 8.8l/100km

wasn’t that far distant and was

helped by an amazing 6.3l/100km

figure showing instantaneously at

100km/h, the engine very relaxed

turning over at just 1600rpm.

Both engines drive through a

fabulous eight-speed automatic

transmission. There’s a paddle

shift mechanism should the

driver so desire, but I far

preferred just selecting the drive

button and letting the engine

and gearbox do its own thing,

something that delivers smooth

shifts through a seemingly

endless supply of ratios.

The push-button gear selection

process is part of an intuitive yet

comprehensive array of controls

the driver has command over,

the all-wheel-drive Palisade has

genuine off-the-seal capability, it

has 203mm of ground clearance

and the drive to all corners will

get you in an out of very sticky

situations. My first thought was

how capable it would be on the

skifield access road, although

eight-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

• Fuel usage – 7.3l/100km

finding a spot in a crowded car

challenge.

Mid-winter meant it was

another wet weekend highway

evaluation, however, the Palisade

imparts a well-connected feeling

on drenched roads.

That has a lot to do with the

way the four-wheel-drive system

works. While there are a host

of driver-selectable individual

terrain control modes, in

standard drive mode power will

be distributed proportionally

between front and rear, and

individual wheels depending on

how grip is best determined.

On that subject, huge

Bridgestone Dueler sport

specification tyres (245/50 x 20in)

offer prodigious grip in the first

instance, they are both quiet and

informative, just what you want

in a large luxury car.

The driveline systems work

seamlessly and are part of an

extensive safety network both

passive and active. It’s not only

the safety features that make

the Palisade attractive, it’s got

everything on-board that will

satisfy all occupants. A multitude

of clever devices provide

individual settings between front

and rear, all designed so that each

occupant can have his/her own

freedom.

If you don’t need the rear row

of seats upright, they fold down

to provide a cavernous load area.

There’s no shortage of choice in

New Zealand’s seven-seat SUV

market. Where the Palisade has

a point of difference is that it is

not utility-based, it doesn’t have a

body over ladder chassis design,

instead the fully monocoque

structure has a platform

engineered for one purpose

from the ground up and that is

occupant comfort. Stability and

capability are additional benefits

that are a by-product of that type

of design.

That being the case, the

Palisade will conquer sales

with its all-round functionality

and, dare I say it, its luxury

features blending with all-road

capability sets it apart from the

competition.

Not forgetting that if you don’t

need four-wheel-drive and want

the benefit of that extra seat,

the Palisade is a people-mover

that will transport those from

all walks of life, including the

orchestra.

Te Aratai

College

Linwood High School 1954 – Te Aratai College 2022


26 Bay Harbour News Wednesday July 28 2021 Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Dreams into Reality

Te Aratai College

From Linwood High School 1954 to

Te Aratai College 2022, our school

continues its proud history.

Next year we return to Aldwins Rd and our

completely rebuilt and stunning new school.

We thank our architects, Architectus; our

construction company, Southbase; our project

managers RDT Pacific and the Ministry of

Education. Architectus and Southbase are the

designers and builders of a number of prominent

Christchurch buildings including the Central Bus

Exchange and Tūranga, the central library. We

are fortunate to have such a team.

Te Aratai College is inspiring from the 650 seat

theatre-standard auditorium to the sunny student

centre and the student-friendly courtyards. Our

design is for community-whanaungatanga,

kōrero-conversation and personalised student

success. It reflects the new name gifted to us by

Ngāi Tūāhuriri, Te Aratai College, Pathway to the

Sea.

In 2016 there was extensive community

consultation about what the community wanted

for their new school. The key summary point

from this community voice was:

The school should nurture individual excellence

by providing varied opportunities to meet

individual needs. It should foster a ‘love to learn’

culture that returns high levels of achievement

and success at a cost that is accessible for all.

Reflecting this, our classroom design is based on

responsiveness to the needs of the students at

that moment. Our classrooms are the standard,

time-honoured size but with the flexibility to open

up. This is because there are occasions when

learning can be more open but equally there are

times for some students when this is a learning

disaster. Te Aratai College also has smaller

rooms for students who learn best in reduced,

very quiet environments, and bigger spaces for

larger student gatherings. The building design

has flexibility for staff and students to respond to

the many factors that personalise success.

Of course, new buildings alone do not

necessarily improve education. The relationship

with the teacher - he tāngata, he tāngata, he

tāngata - and the personalisation of learning

are the key for this. However, there is also no

doubt that new, purpose-built buildings and

spaces that arise from these community values

of relationships and personalisation contribute

hugely to student success. This is Te Aratai

College.

Southbase Construction is a leading construction management

company, recognised for building state-of-the-art educational

facilities where our tamariki can learn and grow.

We are proud partners delivering Te Aratai College.

“Moving to Te Aratai and seeing the

new school is going to be amazing. Te

Aratai means a lot to me because there

are going to be new students attending

and the new design is exciting. And no

Te Aratai College - A New School for our Community

When Linwood College reopens its doors in term two, 2022 it will be

known as Te Aratai College.

Te Aratai College is the name gifted to us by Ngāi Tūāhuriri and means Pathway to the

Sea. This name builds on Linwood College’s history of being the local secondary school

for communities from Linwood-Woolston, the eastern hill suburbs, and out to the coast.

The 780 students and 120 staff are excited about this wonderful opportunity.

The school’s initial fitout budget however will not stretch to all the equipment and

services identified as needed.

To help make our new school a centre of excellence we now call upon our community,

past pupils and local businesses to support this amazing new educational opportunity by

donating to the Linwood College Foundation. Please join with us in making the vision of

a well-resourced school for our community a reality.

Together let us create a school which will provide every educational opportunity for all

students. Let us help each one to succeed to their potential.

It is only through education and by supporting where

there is need, that we can transform our communities and

create exciting futures for all our students.

Items requiring funding:

• Technology and creative courses -

specialised equipment

• The new Performance Centre fit out

including retractable seating, lighting

boards, stage curtains and sound system

• Commercial kitchen specialist equipment

• Playgrounds for Year 7 and 8 students

• Furniture and equipment for the Kimihia

Parental College, the teen parent unit

• Music recording equipment

• Bouldering – a rock climbing wall

• Whakairo (carvings) for the whare

(meeting house)

• Pastoral care resourcing

• Trees, shrubs and general planting

Dick Edmundson has been Principal at Linwood College since 2016. He taught

English at Linwood in the 1990s. He was previously Principal at Hornby HS and

has taught in a variety of schools in New Zealand and overseas.

“As a current Linwood College parent, I

know how great this school is and would

love your help to make the new Te Aratai

College amazing. Let us support our young

people to become the best they can be.”

Sara Templeton,

Christchurch City Councillor –

Heathcote Ward

“I know that people are clear on how

important a strong, local school is for strong,

local communities. Donating to the new

school will be a way for many people to help

make this a reality.”
