at how government had treatedthe

werepushingthe reformthrough in

an undemocratic way.

‘‘Wetoldour community we would

have proper consultationover the

final proposal and whether to opt in

or out. We can’t do thatnow.’’

questions, as requestedbythe

government.

‘‘Westillhaven’t received

Agroup exhibition exploring female

body image,identity, and how

popular culture has shaped

perceptions of femininity has

openedatAshburtonArt Gallery.

Called Configure, the exhibition

aims to challenge,critique, and

overturn femalestereotypes and

features large­scale sculptures,

video, ceramics and embroidery.

Dunedin­based artists Michele

Beevors, Kiri Mitchell, Sarah Baird,

Kylie Norton, Maggie Covell and

Tamara Nicholson have

collaboratedtoexplore feminism

and feministartwork.

Art lecturer Michele Beevors has

produced large and colourfulpieces

made from fibreglass and another

from dozensofsoft toys. Her

influencesinclude 1950s pin up

Marilyn Monroe.

Tamara Nicholson uses video to

explore suburban alienation, Kylie

Norton focuses on dating and

anxiety and the influences of

Instagram in her embroidery works

and Sarah Baird has created100

ceramic Berthasinamyriad of

colours.

Art lecturer KiriMitchell, an

award winning film maker, has her

stop motion animation film Turf

featured.

Turf tells the story of Pat, amature

ladywho livesunder asmall glass

domeand whosespace gets intruded

uponbyaseries of femalecharacters

operating ride­on lawnmowers.

One of the aims of her shortfilms

was to explore powerful

representations of older women,Ms

Mitchell said.

Pat was quite pear­shaped,with

strong sturdy thighs, and not your

stereotypical ‘‘bouncy female’’.

Ms Mitchellhas threeother works

featured, including alife­sized

model of Pat.

Michele Beevors said the

Configure exhibition was about

works of the female experiencefrom

different perspectives.

Different factionsoffeminism

were tellingstories usingdifferent

commodities, she said.

The exhibition was visually

generous and the aim was to give the

viewer something to think about.

The Configure exhibition runs

until January 21.

Collectors Need WarMedals

urrently, throughout NZ and the world there is a big

demand by collectors for war medals. These cover all

wars right through from the New Zealand Land Wars and the

Boer War, to the First and Second World Wars and the later

Korea and Vietnam conflicts. New Zealand Servicemen and

Women first served overseas in the Boer WarinSouth Africa

around 1900 and the war medals awarded for this service are

needed by the buyers, as areany other Medalsfromearly New

Zealandand the NewZealandWars.

General service medals from both the First and Second

World Wars will also be purchased, but ascan be imagined

these were awarded in fairly large numbers. “If a group

of medals has any special award for bravery such as the

Military Medal, Military orFlying Cross or other medals for

DistinguishedConduct or Meritorious Service, these canadd

great value toagroup” stated Mr Tony Grant, buyer for John

Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd. “Many families have old medals,

some dating back to early Imperial days, that they arenot sure

whattodowith. These arebetteroff in the handsofcollectors

who will look after them. We will be happy to look at any war

medalswhatsoever, just bring them in to venues”hesaid.

OldCoins CanToss UpaRarity

n lockdown when you sorted out your drawers and

cupboards you may have come across some old coins.

Youjust never knowwhat rarities may be lurking there. The

advice of Tony Grant from John Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd

is to bring them in to the venues and have them appraised.

“Wewant to see any old foreign coin accumulations.Weare

quite happy togothrough your coins on the spot and give

youanidea what we can pay.You just never knowwhat can

Message From ThePrincipal

‘Time Flies’

There isavery old saying ‘that time flies’ and, as

we age, weappreciate how true this statement

seems to be. (I did have an explanation once

from a Mathematician that explained why this

phenomena is actually areality, but Iwon’t bore

youwith thereasoning).

Final Dayfor Year 13 Students

Today isthe final day for our Year 13 students and

their last dayoffive years at Ashburton College,orsecondaryschooling if

theydidn’t startatCollege.

This particular year group is one I’m fond of simply because all of us

started together as ‘newbies’onthe first day of2017. They were clearly

nervous and excited and, truth betold, Iheld similar feelings (even

though Ihad been aPrincipal in twoother schools).

This particular year group started asapproximately 270 Year 9students,

with 140officially graduating from College today. Thebalancehavetaken

advantage of the numerous employment opportunities on offer in our

region, andare alreadyworking.

To OurGraduates

To our graduates today-wewish youwell.It’sbeenfantastic having you

all as part ofAshColl. Wherever you gointhe future I’m confident that

your time herewill have helpedtostand youingoodstead.

EmploymentOpportunities

Speaking of employment -there iscertainly plenty on offer here for our

students. Our local employers are now coming to us and seeking their

future employees,beforelooking via differentavenues. Last week there

were fourteen jobs on offer to our students, advertised in the Student

Daily notices. Ofthese, ten were permanent and these included six

apprenticeships. Our AshColl students are extremely fortunate tohave

so many opportunities.

Year 11 and Year 12 Prize-Givings

Next week we have our Year 11 and 12 prize-givings here atCollege in

our Auditorium.

Unfortunately these ceremonies could also be considered as ‘COVID

Casualties’. As has beenstatedinprevious newsletters,and in information

to families, to fit the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education

guidelines our prize-giving celebrations have had to be majorlyreduced.

These are attended by prize-winners only (to keep the numbers under

100). There will be no parents, caregivers, supporters or entertainment,

and they are held in our Auditorium rather than at the Ashburton Trust

EventCentre.

This is just another example of howadaptable schools needtobeinthese

COVID times. Asadvertised,all prize-givingsare being videoedand each

recipient photographed asthey receive their award. The footage and

photos will be availabletoview via alink which willbesentout to families

and College supporters,soyou canwatchthe ceremonyatatime to suit

you, andwhānau.

Staff Appointments –and DeputyPrincipal Appointment

Finally it is avery busy time of year for schools as we seek toappoint

for2022. Wehavethe customary retirement, promotions and departures

thatyou expectwith ateachingstaff of ninety.

An essential piece of the puzzle fell into place recently with the

appointmentofaDeputyPrincipal to replaceRon Cresswell.

We have appointed Hannibal Ikahihifo to this position. He is an

experienced Deputy Principal with strengths in student pastoral care.

We had fourteen applicants for this position, with at least eight of

them considered before weshortlisted tofour, all of whom could have

undertaken the position.

We look forwardtowelcoming Hannibal andhis whānau in thenew year.

Staff -Farewell

Kyle Henderson

Kyle Hendersoncame to AshburtonCollegeinApril of 2018, fromWellington

via the West Coast,toafixed-termposition as ateacher of English.

Kyle possesses apassionfor narrativeinall forms, areal interest in interactive

storytelling and abelief that mutual trust and respect develops positive

relationships with students.

He came, also, with a wide range of previous vocational experience

including work within the corporateand public sectors and military service.

Outside ofthe classroom Kyle coached the well-performed College Junior

Boys’Cricket Team, which he thoroughly enjoyed. This past week he also

proffered his hair to the in-College ‘Shave foraCure’ fundraiser.

This he may find mildly chilly asheheads south to the Winton area! We

thank Kyle for his time given to College and wish him well in his future

endeavours.

Appreciation

Donation to SupportCollege Visually

Impaired Students

The College’s Mainstream Learning Support Team is very grateful

for the generous donation allowing for the purchase of two i-pads

which will go alongwaytoassistingnot onlyour studentswith vision

impairmentscurrently enrolled,but other students in thefuture.

Juliet Johnstone, College’s Learning Support Co-ordinator, advises that

i-pad use can assist students in the classroom by enabling them to take

photographsofwritingand diagrams on whiteboards,and then being able

to enlarge theworkonthe i-pad in order to see it better. Having up-to-date

technologyinthe classroom is vitaltoensuring lowvision studentsare able

to access the curriculumalongside their peers.

There are many different apps that can be downloaded to assist

vision impaired students and, additionally, vision screening tests

specifically designed for i-pads that help identify students with visual

processingissues andallowthem to seek further treatment.

In the classroom, students can also utilise the voicecommand function, Siri,

perform tasks andspeech-to-textsoftware.

Presentation

On Thursday 28 October Alan Hall, Vice Chairman of the Ashburton

CommunityCommittee forBlindLow Vision NewZealand, visited College

to make the presentation to Juliet. These are now ready for our current

students to makeuse of.

Not having previously had i-pads available to low vision students, this

donation was described by Juliet as ahighlight ofthe year. The i-pads

remain theproperty of Ashburton College,for use with studentsinensuing

years and arefor use on-site at College.

Alan Hall noted their

support, often of adults,

but less-so within schools

for students and that

this prompted their

investigation into what

would most assist students.

insight into Christmas of days

goneby.

penny bag of sweets, somenuts

or asmall toy was notunusual

for many previous generations.

There is an area in the

museum for children to play

with someofthe sturdierold

How difficult it must have

been forthose to make the

decision to have avery limited

AshburtonShow. For those

who entered, congratulations,

for the Ashburton A&P Show is

part of Ashburton’s yearly

calendar,just as Winter goes

into Spring.

And what alovely time of

year, asthe days lengthen and

warm up, the trees sprout new

leaves and very colourful

blooms appear. All this amid

the intense work load of the

farming regime, as the spring

commitments on farm are

endured with many hours of

hard work.

With public events

rescheduled, postponed or

Hypocrisy of

climate politics

RURAL

Ashburton Courier, November 11, 2021

17

Ihave watched with disdain the

circus of the climate

conference COP26 recently

held in Glasgow. All manner of

world leaders and elites made

their way to Glasgow to

collectively agonise over the

Climate Emergency and the

urgent need for us all to change

our ways.

Well, what they actually

mean is us change our ways, not

them.

President Biden arrived in a

747 with asecond 747 as adecoy

and afleet of Globemaster

heavy transport planes carrying

the 80 odd vehicles and

helicopters that make up his

motorcade.

Jeff Bezos of Amazon arrived

by private jet, as did many of

the other elites. Prince Charles

even made an appearance,

because keeping up

appearances at things like

climate conferences are everso

important.They all spoke of

the urgent need to reduce our

impact. No argument from me

on that at all.

What Ididn’t see was any

Ford Festivas, Ididn’t see any

of them sitting down the back in

cattle class like the rest of us

when we occasionally fly. Even

our very own James Shaw was

in on the act, just unfortunately

he turned up with his

entourage aweek late, but

schedules can be such fiddly

things to get right.

The thing that gets me is this,

if we are faced with aclimate

emergency, and let’s not debate

that here, and if it is as dire as

predicted, then action is

required from all of us.

The lifestyle we know will

and must change.

Therewill be no flitting up to

Christchurch for the weekend,

our clothes will need to go back

to being natural fibres and worn

for years, or passed down

families likewhen we were kids

so will need to be made of a

durable quality to last.

Consumer goods,cars, TVs

will need to become luxury

items purchased sparingly and

expected to last.

Our borders may needto

remainclosedtoall but the most

essentialbusiness travel. Our

generation will be the last of the

great travellers.

That is of course if we are

serious.

Let’s be honest, buying an

electric car and thinking your

contributionisdone, is utterly

meaningless if our additional

electricity is being generated by

importing 1.4mtonnesofcoal

from Indonesia annually to burn

in power stations.

Any political proclamations

claiming these new EVs are

virtuous is just fairy dust.

If we are serious about EVs,

then we need to be building

hydrogeneration, windfarms

and solar generation capacity

with haste.But we are not, are

we?

If we are serious, we would be

ensuring our manufactured

goods are being made with

renewable energy sources, but if

we are just moving our

manufacturing capacity or

outsourcing our goods to

countries that have not pledged

to reduce emissions, we are just

being NIMBYsonacountry

wide scale. (Not In Our Back

Yard).

If we are serious, we wouldn’t

just be creating amoney­goround.

We willnot make any progress

until we reduce the amount of

fossilfuel burnttopower the

modernhumanlifestyle.

New Zealandfarmers are

working on aplan to accelerate

the reduction of methane from

our livestock, called He Waka

Eke Noa, the primarysector

climate partnership;and

through technologies as they

becomeavailable. In fact, we

are the only sector of New

ratherthan offsets.

Rakaia water order queried

New Zealand Freshwater

Anglers president Dr Peter

Trolove is questioningthe

enforcement of water consents.

He believesTrustpower has

allegedlybeen selling water to

irrigators outsidelimits laid

downbythe 2013 amended

Rakaia Water Conservation

Order (WCO).

“In additionevidence

strongly points to other

downstream consent holders

abstracting Rakaia River flows

beyond their consent limits,” he

said.

An incomplete Environment

Canterbury (ECan)report

recorded how Trustpower

elected to ‘‘store’’ waterwithin

the inaccessiblepart of Lake

Coleridge for latersale to

contracted irrigation schemes,

he said.

“Trustpowerallegedly

adoptedthis method of water

budgeting unlawfully and

Dr Peter Trolove

without consent.

‘‘Theyclearly did not follow

the water harvesting formula

proscribed in theamended

RWCO.”

DrTrolove said aNational

‘‘Environment Canterbury,

thebody who managed the

Coleridge project and theother

consents to abstract water from

ariver with aNational Water

ConservationOrder has been

either negligent, incompetent,

complicit, or simply derelict in

its duty as legislated in the

RMA1991.”

After the Rakaia Water

Inquiries to the Minister for

Boosting mental health needs

Anew mental health outpatient facility

for children and young people in

Canterbury is set to benefit from the

latest funding push of Māia Health

Foundation.

Māia is hoping to raise $300,000 in the

next six weeks, as part of their Shine A

Light appeal launched this week.

The appeal has a$6million target and

runs until December 24.

All funds raised will go toward anew

mentalhealthoutpatient facility for

children andyoungpeople in Canterbury.

RainbowChildren’s Trust,along with

two other generous donors, has agreed to

dollar­match any donation made to the

Shine ALight appeal, uptothe value of

$150,000.

Māia Health Foundation general

manager fundraising andmarketing Anna

Galvan saideverydonation,nomatter the

size, can be doubled –‘‘meaningthattheir

Board’s (DHB) Child, Adolescent and

Family (CAF) service,ontop of the

service’s existing caseload.

Māia was working alongside the DHB

to create amodern,fit­for­ purpose

mentalhealth outpatient facility for

children andyoung peoplein

Canterbury.

Māia Health Foundation trustee

Janine Morrell­Gunn said the new

facility could not comesoon enough.

“Ouryoung people have faced adecade

of extraordinarychallenges andurgently

need our help.

‘‘We have incredible, passionate

mentalhealth staffwho arehamstrung

at­risk young people into for treatment.”

Detaileddesign work is under way for

Friday.

Both deaths coincidedwith

Motorcycle Awareness Month

in October.

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel said both crashes

appearedtobethe fault of the

motorcyclists. However,itwas

too early to say this definitively

as theywerestill being

investigated.

The crashes highlighted the

importance of motorcyclists

driving to theconditionsand

withinthe limits of their own

ability and the abilityoftheir

Meanwhile, SelwynDistrict

Council asset manager

saidthe annual motorcycle

Pupils help clean up coast

Hinds School pupils have helped remove

weeds from abanded dotterel breeding

hotspot near Kaikoura.

Pupils joined forces with Environment

Canterbury (ECan) land management and

biodiversity adviser Heath Melville for the

clean up which removed lupins from the

South Bay area of the coastal settlement.

“It was afun couple of hours on the beach

with such an enthusiastic group of students,

teachers, and parents.

‘‘It’s encouraged me to keep engaging with

schools to celebrate our local environment

and look at different ways we can connect

people with it,” Mr Melville said.

The work that the class completed during

the field trip provided instant habitat

restoration, turning lupin shrublands back

into open beach gravels.

Removing lupins and other brush­weeds

improves the beach habitat for native groundnesting

birds, like banded dotterel and South

Island oystercatchers.

Brush­weeds provide cover for predators

and colonise the open gravel environments

that the birds prefer to nest in.

Plan to breed kelpie dogs

TONI.WILLIAMS

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz

Dog triallistWayne Miller

is keen to import new

kelpie bloodlines into New

Zealand,showcasetheir

skills and bolsterhis

successinthe sport.

He hasaneight­weekold

bitch due in thecoming

months, which he plans to

breed with his three­yearold

kelpie, Steel.

Arelative newcomer to

dog trialling, Mr Miller, 54,

joined the Maitland Sheep

Dog Trial Club ayearago

and has not looked back.

Thescanning and

crutching contractor has

had awhirlwind first

season with Steel. Thepair

won amaiden event, two

intermediate events and

placed in an open final.

Kelpie dogs were

versatile, backing and

barking, plus Steel was

used to being around

sheep in the yards, Mr

Miller said, as they worked

together.

He wasalso training

Steel’s 14­month­old

daughter, Luna, and

planned to have both dogs

run at the next event in

Southland.

Mr Miller, aformer

Southland rugby

representative, took to the

field in the Ashburton A&P

Show Tux dog trialslast

month butthis time

successwas out of reach.

Heand Steel recorded an

incomplete run on day two

of the trials.

Up to four carloads of

trialists fromthe deep

southmade the journey

northtoAshburtonfor the

event,whichhad arecord

168runs, over two full

days.

Mr Miller was looking to

theSouthlandsheep dog

trialsatMandeville, near

Gore(November17and 18)

to qualify forthe South

Islandsemi finalsat

Tapanui (November 19 and

20).
