Bikes in

tunnel a

hot topic

again

• By Samantha Mythen

DISCUSSION about making travel

easier for cyclists travelling from

Lyttelton through to Christchurch

city has sparked up again.

Cycle advocate and Lyttelton

resident Sarah Van Der Burch

said she wants it to be easier to get

bikes through the tunnel.

“If you can’t bike through the

tunnel or bus, you will drive

your car. I love biking. If, as a

community, we want to reduce

emissions, reducing our time in

cars is something we can all do as

individuals.”

This issue has been discussed

numerous times in the past.

Environment Canterbury

general manager of public

transport Stewart Gibbon said

ECan had engaged with cycle

advocates from Lyttelton two

years ago to explore options.

Said Gibbon: “We explored the

idea of secure bike storage on

the city side of the tunnel with

the bike advocacy group, but

there was little interest, and an

appropriate location and funding

was not found.”

Instead, the route 28 buses were

fitted with racks that hold three

bikes.

while heat pumps are a cost effective

form of heating and it may seem to be

energy use as your pump struggles

to maintain the desired room temperature. The reason could be a number

of things; blocked filters and / or coils, a compromised compressor or a

refrigerant leak. Like any appliance, regular maintenance of your heat pump

will mean it will run more efficiently and save you money. All of these things

will be assessed in a regular service by our trained technicians.

The power is all yours and the best thing you can do to extend the life and

Bid to add colour to streets

WALKING TO school in

Addington may soon be a

journey filled with artistic

inspiration if one Addington

group is successful in its

proposal to council.

In one of the more visually

vibrant proposals submitted

recently to the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board

meeting, Addington School

board of trustees chairwoman Jo

Robertson spoke of a proposal

to paint the roads in Addington

with colour and playful designs.

Her aim was to bring the

community together, connect

areas of Addington across

Brougham St, and make the

commute to/from school more

fun for children.

She said there was strong response

to the chalk art that had

appeared during the first Covid

lockdown as a way to brighten

up people’s lives. She said they

were playful streets, where the

community loved the interaction

with the chalk drawings.

“The community wants our

active school commutes to be

more fun for our tamariki.

We’d love to see art that is fun,

that reflects our whenua, and

reflects Addington people,” she

said.

She said that using playful

elements they can add a sense

OPTION: Addington could

soon have playful designs

on roads and footpaths

such as those used in

other locations to make

the journey to school more

fun for children.

of fun, safety and identity to the

area.

Robertson also said a

proposal to paint murals on the

Addington Park pavilion and

the toilet block at the Selwyn

St/Somerset Cres corner,

suggesting a competition

between schools could provide

designs for the murals.

In Brief

ROAD WORKS

The end is in sight for work

on several safety upgrades to

the city’s transport network.

City Council acting head of

transport Lynette Ellis said by

early October construction work

should be wrapped up on the

Dyers Pass Rd safety upgrade

and the realignment of the busy

intersection of Cashmere, Hoon

Hay and Worsleys Rd.

POOL OPENS TOMORROW

The much-anticipated $22 million

Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood pool will

open tomorrow. Due to Covid

level 2 restrictions, the opening

will be strictly limited to 100

invited people, and access to the

pool will be restricted to only 48

people at a time. The ‘Have a go’

activities and ‘Party in the park’

planned for Saturday and Sunday

have been postponed.

GARDEN CARE

Gardeners are encouraged to

‘gear up’ to protect themselves

against legionnaires’ disease as

they get stuck into their spring

gardens. Canterbury Medical

Officer of Health Dr Ramon Pink

said legionnaires’ disease, caused

by legionella bacteria, can start

with flu-like symptoms. This

year’s campaign highlights the

importance of using the right gear

when handling compost.

Participation a prize in itself for

• By John Cosgrove

MAN AND beast were running

together at the third annual 4Paws

Marathon series held on Sunday

at Bottle Lake Forest Park.

Observing Covid level 2

spacing rules, competitors

and their dogs from all over

the South Island lined up for

the start of events, including

a marathon, a half marathon,

16km, 10km and 5km runs, and

a 2.4km rascals walk/run.

They ran along tracks through

Bottle Lake Forest Park and

along nearby beaches – with

some going almost as far as the

Brighton Pier.

The day also hosted two

virtual races.

Organisers started lines of

competitors at ten-second

intervals. They also conducted

mandatory vet checks along the

way.

4Paws event organiser and race

director John Molloy said it was

a massive but fulfilling day.

“In all we were very impressed

with how people respected

the event’s Covid rules with

responsible mask usage in what

is a very social event (about 100

participants).”

He said dogs bring out the best

in people, and for the third year

in a row there were no dog –or

human – altercations.

“The smiles on everyones

faces . . . inspires us to keep

hosting this event. [It] is about

participation and not winning

so the winners get no winning

prizes as such.

“But in due time they will

realise they have won the

best prize of all – sharing

the experience of finishing a

marathon together with their

best friend,” Molloy said.

When it came to the multiple

races, he was unaware of any

event in the world that offered

this experience.

It was good to see both human

and dog winners were from

Christchurch, Molloy said.

Darryl Cotton and Pip, a

kelpie, of Rangiora won the

men’s marathon in 3hr 46min

31sec, while Holly Weston and

her sheep dog Billy Knowler of

Beckenham won the women’s in

3hr 55min 41sec.

Bus capacity

stretched

for cycles

• From page 1

However, Van Der Burch had

heard about times when there was

not enough room for all the bikes

on the rack, with cyclists having

to wait until the next bus.

She has already discussed her

ideas with Deputy Mayor and Lyttelton

resident Andrew Turner.

Said Turner: “This is an important

idea to talk about. We need

to think about whether increasing

capacity to carry bikes on buses

could work or maybe incentivise

cycling where travelling from

Lyttelton to the gondola and back

could be free if you have a bike.”

Turner said these decisions will

be up to ECan.

Cycling through the tunnel

or in any of the side tunnels has

been researched and dismissed as

unfeasible and unsafe.

Gibbon said there will be a

service review of route 28 in the

coming year ahead.

Van Der Burch said she hopes

to talk at ECan’s transportation

sub-committee in late October.

Get to know peninsula on foot

• By Samantha Mythen

TWO-THIRDS OF tickets

available have sold for an annual

walking festival exploring Banks

Peninsula.

The Banks Peninsula Walking

Festival is run over four

weekends in November, offering

guided walks in a variety of

locations all around the Peninsula.

More than 50 per cent of

spaces for the festival sold

within the first four days of sales

when the tickets were released

earlier this year.

Festival

co-ordinator

Sue Church

said the aim is

to promote “a

greater understanding”

of

Sue Church

the area and “to

encourage good

health and

well-being.”

“All walks are guided by local

volunteers with a good knowledge

of the walk they intend

to lead and who are passionate

about the area,” she said.

Many of the walks are across

private land and covenanted

areas in remote parts of

the peninsula, otherwise

inaccessible.

“These are always popular

with festival-goers, with the

longer, harder tramps usually

the first ones to sell out,”

Church said.

“It’s a novelty for them to be

able to access somewhere they

usually can’t go.”

Walks include exploring the

Kaitorete Spit, Brice Falls, Camp

Bay, Hinewai Reserve, the Hikuraki

covenant and many more,

with hikes varying in difficulty,

length and duration.

The festival began as the

Lyttelton Walking Festival but

expanded in 2013 to include the

whole peninsula.

It is run by representatives

from the Rod Donald Banks

Peninsula Trust and Little

River/Wairewa Community

Trust, with partners from

Akaroa District Promotions,

Diamond Harbour Community

Association, Governors Bay

Community Association and

Project Lyttelton assisting with

promoting the event.

Church said they are

“extremely grateful” to the

volunteer guides who plan and

lead the walks, as well as “the

generous private landowners”

who allow the festival access to

their land.

The event will go ahead fully if

Canterbury is at alert level 1.

How we aspire to meet our students

A “culturally responsive pedagogy” is a term that

many outside of the education sector may have heard

from time to time but have little grasp of. Such is the

way of many government departments with their

reliance on such jargon and assertions to stay the

course. What this means for us at Linwood College

at Ōtākaro is an endeavour to deliver an accessible

practice of our teaching and learning that values an

individual’s culture. It is a genuine attempt of our

educators to recognise, celebrate and utilise every

ākonga for their unique and meaningful identity and

background. We recognise as educators our tried

and true purpose is to advance academic progress

but we also aspire to ensure all our students feel their

cultural identity is strong, secure and fundamentally

valued along the way. Using this practice ensures

we are bicultural and upholding the principles of the

Treaty of Waitangi for both parties, and when we

succeed it benefits every student. For all ākonga, we

must work to ensure they all feel they belong within

the learning environment we provide and a sound,

clear kaupapa is shared with the community that

is focused on the potential of ‘all’ learners to thrive

without compromising who they are.

Students attending Tausala Night

So what does this look, sound and feel like in

our learning community? In the classroom, it is

expressed through wānanga – decision-making and

learning practices that are responsive to a range of

relevant contexts. It maintains, advances, and shares

knowledge and develops intellectual independence,

while assisting the use of knowledge regarding

ahuatanga Māori (Māori tradition) according to

tikanga Māori (Māori custom). This can be found in

our science classes where Y10 students learn about

genetics and how a cancer threat helped singer

Stan Walker identify how the mutated CDH1 gene

was expressed in his whakapapa. It can be seen

and heard in the karakia recited at the beginning

of Tāhuhu classes. It can be found in the cultural

narrative names gifted to us by Ngāi Tūāhuriri for the

rebuild: Te Aratai college.

Siva Somoa performed at our Festival of Nations

Our commitment to cultural responsiveness is also

addressed in our practice of ako and mahi ngātahi,

a philosophy of not only sharing the content, context

and responsibility of teaching and learning between

student and teacher but also in the wider community

with ongoing kōrero and consultation with whānau.

Perhaps the best example of this is our Wā Whakanui

conferencing we hold twice every year. These

conferences replace the traditional parent-teacher

interviews where whānau are given 10 minutes

intervals to digest a student’s progress by individual

teachers. Instead, Wā Whakanui is a presentation

delivered by our students to their whānau, sharing

and speaking to 3 pieces of their best work. These

are empowering, inspiring presentations where the

self-determination and success of our ākonga is

evident for their loved ones.

Our commitment to strong community bonds is

also ever-present in our Tausala Night where our

Pasifika Students and Polyfest group perform for

their family, friends and kaiārahi, and Te Roopu

Kapa Haka o Kimihia, the school’s kapa haka group.

This group is a combination of 5 kura from around

a new chapter

Students taking part in the He Puna Putaiao

programme

Christchurch including: Christchurch Girls High

School, Christchurch Boys High School, Cashmere

High School and Haeata Community Campus.

The success from these competitions is more than

placing on the day, it includes creating a sense of

whanaungatanga, personal success and a sense

of belonging and identity within the kaihaka for all

ākonga to be proud of who they are and their cultural

identities.

A school is not an isolated silo where we prepare

our students for the ‘real world’ outside. A school is

part of that real world, where the experiences and

expressions are as real and lived as anything that

flows in, through and beyond it. This is why we believe

that a successful kura, a school that delivers success

for its taonga, is engaged with the communities,

histories and identities of all that come to tread life

and experience into its hallowed halls.

will fit into crockpot.

Grease the bowl/tin with butter,

then line with microwave-proof

cling film.

Microwave fruit/sherry for five

minutes or until all the fruit is

hot, plump and shiny. The

liquid will soak into the fruit as it

cools.

Cool the fruit mixture to room

temperature before using it.

Turn the crockpot onto high

and fill with two cups hot water.

Add brown sugar to the flour/

baking soda/mixed spice/ground

cloves, then tip butter/orange

Spoon mixture into prepared

bowl/tin and level off the top.

Cover with tin foil, folding the

edges down over the bowl.

Lower the bowl/tin into the

crockpot and put the lid on.

Cook on high to eight to 12

hours.
