DANIEL.TOBIN

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Sweeping changes to the

Ashburton Cluband MSA

committee were made at a

specialgeneral meeting

this week.

Over500 members

packedthe auditorium of

the Ashburton Trust Event

CentreonMonday night

after club members raised

concern that they had no

confidenceinthe

committee, due to recent

management or

mismanagement of the

club’s affairs.

The numbers at the

meeting were morethan

the space couldhandle so

an overflowroom,

connected by camera, was

used to accommodate the

extra people.

The meeting ran for

more than two and ahalf

hours.

At the meeting Grant

Thornton, the consulting

companywho wrote the

club’s governance review,

spoke on their report. It

was revealed the

consultation had cost the

club thousands, whichwas

asurprise to some

members.

Astrategic plan

company hiredbythe MSA

to help move forwardalso

spoke.

Meeting chairMark von

Dadelszen, abarrister

from Hastings, took avote

on whether the current

committee should be

removed, with at least

threequartersofthose

present votingno

confidence in the

committee.

It was decided an

interimcommitteeoffive

be appointed.And as only

five people were

nominated, no vote was

required.

The interim committee

members are Mike

Crequer, Maurice Baker

and John Withell, all ex­

MSA club presidents,Trish

Cates, former MSA club

trusteeand Nicky Ellem,

an experienced

accountant.

There’s no family fun day, or

word out on violence prevention.

The White Ribbon campaign has

evolvedand helped makea

years, Ashburton Families Without

Violence co­ordinator Anna

Arrowsmith said.

It was about awareness, education

and impacting people.

‘‘Family violence and violence

againstwomen takes on all forms and

is not just physical.

‘‘There is moreawarenesstoday of

emotionaland verbal abuse as well,

and althoughprogresshas been

made, there is still alot of work to be

done.’’

Akey part of this year’s campaign

is collecting stories of changetohelp

shine alight on what worksin

violence prevention in the

community.

‘‘We wanttohear storiesof

redemption from former survivors

and perpetrators of violence and

want to knowhow peoplehave been

helped, the tools they have used and

the support they have received,’’ Mrs

Arrowsmith said.

Stories can be emailed

(annaarrowsmith@hotmail.co.nz),

posted or dropped in to Safer Mid

Mrs Arrowsmith said the stories

would be collatedand given to

‘‘We werelooking forward to

Covidmay have put a

dampener on Ashburton’s A&P

cups, and camaraderie

continued to shine.

Forthe second year running

the show wasnot open to the

public because of Level 2

restrictions, duetocovid, but

the organisers and volunteers

made sure theshow went on

withaprogramme of

AshburtonA&P Association

president Peter Stewartsaid

there were strong entries

across all sections, and held

overtwo days to limit the

number of people on the

grounds.

‘‘There have been alot of

people disappointed they

couldn’t come, but people

know one of thenew norms is

these public events aren't going

to happen under covid,’’he

said.

An army of volunteers help

run theshow, many havebeen

doing it foryears and run a

smoothoperation.

Peter has been the president

for the past two years; thecovid

‘‘I am disappointed Ihaven't

‘‘It’s reallyimportant in this

day andagewhen we don't

Fellow judge Kristine

mental strain farmers had

been under.

‘‘So many things have been

cancelled and it’s nicetheycan

actually get out and go to

The large pavilion that

housed thehome industries

selectingthe bestfrom each

the standard of work with

Grant’s shear grit

Forty years of shearing has not

lostits appeal to Rakaia shearing

contractorGrant Smith,owner of

ProShearLtd.

He jumpedatthe chance to

compete lastweekend at the

closedtothe publicAshburton

A&P Showshearing competition:

he won the open/senior local

shearer eventoffive sheep in a

final which became an all­

ProShear Ltd showdown with

company shearers Toko Hapuku

(Methven)second, and senior

shear winner Taare Edwards

(Ashburton) third in the local

event.

Grant, 55,started on the stands

asateenin school to help a

family friend.

He learnedhow to shear from

the likesofJohn Hough, Lindsay

Palmer andDavid Fagan,and

worked with Peter Lyon, John

Mulholland, AdrianCox and

Barry Pullin,before setting up

the contractingbusiness,in

Rakaia,with Norm Harraway.

Now Grant,and wife Lynn run

the business and at peak, from

mid­July to the endof

September, have 30 to 40 staff

working in theAshburtonand

Rakaia gorge’s and as far afield

as Little River, at Banks

Peninsula.

It’s abusy operationwhich

seesstaff often living and

working together. It helpsifthey

get along.

The couple’s twin sons, Alex

and Jackson, 26,have also

ventured into shearing, but in

different ways. Alex has takenit

up as aprofession­after

attending Telford ­and has

travelled the world shearing.

Jackson, after full­time

university studyand two

completedbachelor degrees,

sees its potential as apathway

for travel.

After fourdecades,

representing NewZealand and

plentyoftitles, Grant feels the

impact on his bodywith‘‘a few

niggles’; he is likely due ahip

replacement with bone­on­bone

abit of acause for concern.

LuckilymostofGrant’s

16­hour­long days involve

keeping the shearsmoving for

his staff, andclients. He’slucky if

he has shorn 100 sheep pre­lamb

this season, he says.

Despite this, Grant was on the

starting lineupinthe New

Zealand MerinoShearing

Championships open machine

shearing event at Alexandra last

month;its 60th show.

He took thestandsagainst 37

others; all younger, and among

whichincluded his son, Alex,26.

Luggingmerino wethers

weighing up to 60kg, Grant made

it through to the six shearer

final. He is nowthe only shearer,

aged over 50, to contest the open

final twice. He last diditin2018.

The shows were away to

always try to betteryourself,

often notabout theprize money

but earning thetitle, he said.

Therewas plenty of

competition between shearers

but friendshipsmade in the

yardswereput aside during the

event, and rekindled afterwards,

he said.

Improved strength and balance

Astrength andbalanceclass in Ashburton has given

one local woman the abilitytoset goals and achieve

thingsshe thoughtwereinher past.

Ngaire MacKenzie is an 80-year-old Mid Canterbury

resident who had been struggling with everyday

movement due to an arm injury and hip problems.

Her arm injury had resulted in ametal plate being

inserted into her left arm which never healed

properly. She also had toundergo hip repairment

surgerybecause of an earlier double hip dislocation.

Both injuries leftNgairewith reduced mobility.

A collaborative approach between the Falls

Champion Service’s Allison Maconochie and Sport

Canterbury’sAimeeCosgrove who delivers the Green

Prescription service inMid Canterbury, has enabled

Ngaire to make significantprogress in herrecovery.

One step that has helped her immensely has been

heading along tothe local strength and balance

accredited class –Evolve.

Ngaire had beendoing well with her homeexercises

prescribed from Allison at the Falls ChampionService

but needed an extension from this. Allison referred

her to Aimee to assist her further through the Green

Prescription service.

“After our consultationNgaireand Idecided that she

would benefit from Evolve classes at the EA Networks

Centre in Ashburton. She isabsolutely loving the

class and doingreallywell,”saysAimee.

Amonth on, Ngaire has been blown away by the

considerable changes she has made inthe first four

weeks alone.

“I couldn’t do much when I started, I couldn’t lift my

body off the ground, as I’ve gone on, I can do more

each time.

“The fact that you notice the difference that’s the

big thing for me-my balance has improved, Ihave

abigger range of movement and Iamnow able to

Head of Senior School Message

Introduction

Wow weare nearly there! This year, once again,

has had its highs andlows.

AshColl WayValues

One aspectofschool thathas become increasingly

clear to me is the importance of the AshColl

Way Values. The students who strive topursue

Pride, Quality and Respect are the students who

seem to succeed through these highs and lows

successfully.

This term the Senior School is focusing on Quality by being prepared

for upcoming NCEA examinations, and Pride by finishing the year off

strongly.

Changes to NCEA for2021 -Learning Recognition Credits (LRC)

Due tothe significant disruption that our students have experienced

this year, through the flooding and COVID Lockdowns, the Ministry of

Education has grantedAshburtonCollege the following LRCs.

Forstudents this means:

Themorecreditsyou achieve, the moreyou areentitledto.

• For every 5credits achieved through internal or external assessment,

students are entitled to1extra credit. These extra credits are called

Learning Recognition Credits (LRCs)

• Upto10ofthe LRCs earned this year can be used towards the 80

required forNCEA Level1.

• Upto8LRCs earned this year can be used towards the 60 required at

Level2and Level3.

Endorsements arestill achievable.

• Toget aCertificate Endorsement-students need 46 credits at Merit or

Excellence level,instead of the usual 50.

• Toget aCourse Endorsement–students need 12 credits at Achieved or

Merit or Excellence levelinacourse,rather than 14. Students still need

to achieveatleast 3credits inexternalsand 3ininternals.

• LRCsdon’t come with a Merit or Excellence,sothey can’t counttowards

an Endorsement.

UniversityEntrance(UE) hasbeen adjusted.

For 2021 the UE requirements have been adjusted from 14 down to 12

credits in three UE-approved subjects. Students still need to have NCEA

Level3and the usual Literacyand Numeracystandards.

College ExamReports (Senior Students)

Senior College Examinations took place at College from Monday

20 September to Tuesday28September,and parents/caregivers of senior

students will be emailed acopyofthese results.

College Exam Results

In this reportitwill only showCollege Exam results.These arethe external

standards thatstudents areenteredfor in the NZQA examinations at the

endofthe year.

ForInternal StandardResults

Forany Internal Standardresultsplease log-on to your Kamar portal.

For Parents and Caregivers, these results are important asthey indicate

how your student isprogressing towards their external exams, and

highlights anygaps in their understanding.

These results arealso one avenue thatcan be used for‘derived grades’if

needed at the end of the year.

Vaccinations and COVID-19 nformation

Everywhere you seem to look at the moment there issomething about

vaccines. The country isatacritical time in the vaccine rollout, and we

know there is still an amountofdifferentinformation in the community.

Sometimes it’s good just to get back to basics and look at the facts.

Schools received very regular COVID-19 Bulletins from Iona Holsted,

Secretary for Education, with more recent publications covering

information regarding the Public Health Order on vaccinations; Qand A;

face coverings in schools on school transport and, above all, promoting

respect for all ākonga regardless of vaccination status; and exam

managementinAlertLevels 1-3.

Full information is available on the Ministry of Education and

Ministry ofHealth web-sites, including information on how the

vaccine works.

Best wishes

Iwish all of the Year 13 students and any other leavers all the very best

forthe future.

Ihavethoroughly enjoyedgetting to know youand supporting youover

the last twoyears.

Acknowledgement

Aspecial thank you and acknowledgement toHead Student Thomas,

Milli, Easterlin and Alex and theStudentExecutivefor all their hardwork

this year.They have done themselves,the school,myself and their parents

proud.

Nothing we candocan change the past,

but everything we do changes the future.

Boyle RiverAGreat Experience ForThree

College Students

Year 10 students Ella Rickard, Keanu Smith and Logan Williams spent

the firstweekofthe October school holidayperiod (MondaytoFriday) out

of their comfortzonesand gainingsuperbexperiences.

Acknowledgement

Through the generosity ofthe Rotary Ashburton and the Ashburton

Plains Rotary Clubs College students, annually, have the opportunity

to attend this amazing camp. This total sponsorship for three students is

very much valued bythe College and the opportunity appreciated bythe

attending students.

Asincerethankyouisgiven to the RotaryClubs.

TheBoyle RiverOutdoor Education Centre

This is operated by the not-for-profit North Canterbury Alpine Trust,

established in 1972 and based 15 kilometres south of the Lewis Pass,

between the Sylvia Tops and the Libretto Mountain Range. The tutors

provide tailor-made outdoor education-based programmes for school

groupsaswellasofferinganumberoftheir own‘Boyle’courses. Adventurebased

learningis the core component of everythingthey do.

Their goal is to extend the potential of young people to being life-long

learners and contributing citizens.

Theprogramme and experiences over the fivedaysincluded –

Dayone holding team-building exercisesincluding building araft; thetwodayovernighttramp

up the HopeValley,High Ropesatthe camp and rock

climbing/abseiling.The raft-building exercise involved three planks, skinny

poles and the ability topaddle it from one bank to the opposite bank.

Getting wet was an inherent

partofthis exercise!

(Pictured right): The

group setting out on the

twoday tramp.

All three students cited the key

benefits of getting to know new

people and making new friendships,

being out of their comfort zone and

learning to trust others –in what was,

in reality, ashortspace of time.

They would strongly recommend that

other students take up this opportunity

when it is next offered, and also

thanked the instructors for their great

support and abilitytomotivate,and to

have students feel safe.

(Pictured left): So far, sogood

with this raft!

Thirteen students formed

this week’s group with the

other students being from

St Andrew’s College, MtHutt

College and Hillmorton High

School.

This particular week proved to be 85% wetwhich provided some challenges

and frustrations,but wasalso alesson in accepting whatcan’t be changed.

Logan said he learnt the importance ofbringing warm clothes, and Keanu

the need fortwo pair of shoes!

For Logan, who has previously

tramped, he enjoyed the two

day/overnight tramps, with the

hardest challenge being the

abseiling and managing heights,a

not uncommon area of discomfort

for many. He said he passed on

the high ropes.

(Pictured right): Agroup abseiling.

Keanu, conversely, lovedthe high

ropes although there were some heights he found too high and didn’t

undertake. Keanu said thatthe High Ropes experiences took up afour-five

hour timespan. Thehardest aspect of the High Ropes wasthe‘Leap of Faith’

where participants had to build up enough confident toclimb, then stand

on the topofahighpower pole and jump to atrapeze.

The abseiling, however, hefound to be ‘fun, and cruisy’, abseiling down a

distanceofapproximately 50 metres,with some ‘hanging’involved.

The ‘scariest’ experience

was the Department of

Conservation Swing Rope

Bridge over the river up

the Hope Valley.

Ella, while contributing tothe above

comments and experiences classed

Saturday evening as people

from around Canterbury took

part in aspooktacular

halloween event. The event was

held at the Rakaia Scout Den

with an early session for

younger children,before the

scare factorwas increased for

kids aged 12 and over, and

adults. Agroupofghoulish

actorsdressed as demonic

nuns,scarecrows and chainsaw

wielding psychosmade sure

people running the gauntlet

had something to scream about.

The earlier family­friendly event

involved children making their

way through agraveyard

surroundedbyidentifiable

Disneythemedcharacters, with

plenty of candy handed out to

rewardtheirefforts.

After months of preparation

event organiser Anita Ruigrok

was thrilled with the turnout. ‘‘It

was absolutely amazingto seeso

many people, between 350 to 400

took partinthe early event, with

agroup of around15volunteers

we wereable to guideeverything

in agood and friendly

atmosphere,’’ she said.

Around 70 visitorsbraved the

later session withvolunteers

ensuring acreepy atmosphere.

VIP ticketholders had unlimited

access to the graveyard, and

weresingled out for terrifying

attention from the roaming

ghouls.‘‘Hearing the screams

GovernmentmakesThree Waters

Reform mandatory

Minister of Local Government

Nanaia Mahuta has announcedthat

the Government’s proposed Three

Waters Reform Programme will

become mandatory effective 1July

2024, creating a new four-entity

structure that would manage water

services across NewZealand.

The announcement came from

Government following a September

deadline for Councils toprovide initial

feedback on the proposed reform.

MayorNeil Brownsaid he and the Council

are disappointed at the decision, stating

the Government’s move to mandate

undermines the democratic process that

wasexpected.

"We all agree that quality drinking water

and environmental outcomes are agood

thing for the country however, it has not

been clear to us whether the proposed

reforms are the best way to achieve this,

and what the advantages are for our

district.

"Having worked through the process

as instructed, we provided extensive

feedback to Government, including

the overwhelming concerns from our

residents.

"Government made it clear that wewere

notbeingasked whether to opt-in or outat

this stage,rather,how the proposalcould

be improved.

"We were looking forward toconsulting

with our community to discuss options

of opting in or out once afinal revised

proposal was made available and our

expectation was to share that feedback

with Government before afinal decision

wasmade,"hesaid.

Mayor Brown also added that Council

will discuss the ramifications of the

announcement at their Council meeting

scheduled this week (3 November), and

looks forward to expressing Council's

view on the matter through thelegislative

process.

For more local information regarding

Three Waters Reform, visit the Council's

website.

About theThree Waters Reform

proposal

The Government’s proposal is to create

four water entities across New Zealand.

Chorus CabinetArt Programme

Kiwi artist Georgette Thompson Art

shares the inspiration behind her

"Kiwis Can Fly" art installation on

Seafield Road; another addition to

Ashburton's streets beautification

efforts made possiblebythe Chorus

Cabinet Art Programme.

Ashburton’s aviation history has come

to life onaChorus box onSeafield Road,

thanks to the art skills of Georgette

Thompson.

Georgette said she was inspired to

submit an aviation theme for the

telecommunications box because nearby

Ashburton Airportwas atraining base for

pilots in thewar.

“In war time, many people learned to

fly here and the airport housed 50 Tiger

moths. They taught people to fly but

it must have been distracting at times

because of the beautiful backdrop of the

MidCanterburyPlains.

“It’s been an amazing opportunity to

beautify this Chorus box and bring some

colour to the road.”

Mid Canterbury people were asked to

submit designs for Chorus box art work

earlier this year and Georgette’s was

among those chosen.

Those entities would replace 67separate

councils(ortheiragencies)whichcurrently

manage their districtthree waters services

independently.

The entity proposed for the Ashburton

Districtwould coverthe Ngāi Tahu takiwa

(all of the South Island excluding all

or some of Nelson, Marlborough and

Tasman).

Ownershipoftheentitywouldremainwith

all participating Councils (mandated by

legislation) and there would be protection

to ensure thewaterentitiesdonot become

privatised without apublic referendum

with a75percent threshold.

Saturday attendedbyabout 70 people.

Mayor Brown had the honour of making

the first disc golf shot, throwing the disc

hopefully towards the first basket on the

DriveReserve near EA NetworksCentre.

“It wasalot of fun and the course will be

agreat asset forour community.The fact

that 110 full rounds were played on the

opening weekend shows an interest.

“Polly pitched her idea, secured Council

and community funds, and has madethis

happen. We appreciate her contributions

to this community.”

Ms Hill worked asalawyer in Ashburton

and is an enthusiasticdisc golf player. She

saw thevalue of acourse forthe town.

Discgolf is played likeregular golf,except

Frisbee) that players throw and aim for a

basket.

The course is free and discs are available

forhirefromthe EA Networks Centre, or to

RMF Silva,Mitre 10,and Greg Marchand.

The course has been designed to start at

-the importance of the

middleschoolyears

The unique social, emotionaland

academic needsofgirls in what we call

themiddle schoolyears,that’sYears 7

throughto10, arestill largely under

cateredfor in theNew Zealandschool

system.

Whilethere is asignificantbodyof

internationalresearchaffirmingthe

opportunities andchallengesfor 11-14

year olds,itdoesn’t appear to influence

theeducational offeringfor these

students.

Girls face huge challengesatthistime.

Theyare both aworkinprogressand a

masterpiece.They arefull of hope forthe

future,theyare passionate andfun, they

areenthusiasticand abreathoffresh air.

Youngadolescents experience ahuge

range of significantphysical,cognitive,

emotional, social andmoral changes,

second only to thefirst fiveyears of

life. Changestothe brainand cognitive

developmentpeak during this time and

thecapacity andfunctioningofthe brain

undergoes amajor overhaul.

Whileresearchsupportstailoring

that this agegroup arestill the’muddle

in themiddle,’ sandwiched betweenthe

formativeyears andthe specialisation

years. At St Margaret’s Collegeour

students areofferedprogrammesof

learningthatare innovative, challenging

andrelevant. Programmes ourgirls are

interested in learning-learningthat

encouragescreativethinking andnew

initiatives.

Youngadolescents also need social

connection and, at this stageintheir

lives, theconnectiontopeers becomes

strongerthantoparents. Friendships

starttodominatemanyaspectsoftheir

livesand girls, in particular,ruminateon

many aspectsoftheir social groupings. At

this point, tweenagersand teenagersneed

to be surrounded by greatpeoplewho

canallow them to learnand grow and

encourage them to be thebesttheycan

be.This goes farbeyondgood education.

The diverseopportunities we offer at

St Margaret’s College, acrossperforming

arts, sports andculture,are paramount,

whetheritbetobuild

strong relationships, to

Crying to communicate

Whether you’re anew mum, oranew dad

about to experience your first Canterbury

anniversary long weekend, oranold hand

with abit of extra knowledge, being anew

parent is like nothing else you’ll ever do. It

brings joy and surprise as you get to know

your new baby, along with many sleepless

nights, mostly from acrying baby trying to

communicate.

Crying can mean hunger oradirty or wet

nappy, or they may just need acuddle, a

song,awalkoraride to soothe them; as you

get to know them better you will learn what

each cryand sound means.

How you respond to baby’s crying will make

baby feel secure and safe but one of the

hardest times can be when your baby keeps

on crying and youcan’t work out why.

If you find yourself getting upset, it’s OKto

put your baby down gently in asafe place,

walk away and take abreak.

Your babyismorelikely to calm down when

youare feeling calm and in control.

Remember to look after your baby well you

need to look after yourself too which means

eating well, getting enough sleep, being

activeand asking forhelp when needed or if

it all becomes toomuch.

Trytosleep or rest when your babydoesand

accept broken sleep and tiredness arepartof

being aparent-especially at the beginning -

but it does get better.
