Jack rides high at<br />

surfing<br />

champs<br />

• By Kristie Boland<br />

THREE TITLES and a new<br />

record is what Jack Tyro<br />

has taken away from the<br />

national surf champs held at<br />

Westport’s Nine Mile Beach<br />

over the weekend.<br />

The 15-year-old St Bede’s<br />

College student broke the<br />

record for the most wins<br />

ever by a surfer at the event,<br />

winning the men’s and<br />

junior longboard divisions<br />

as well as the under-16 boys<br />

division.<br />

Tyro said he did not<br />

expect to do as well as he<br />

did and was “stoked” with<br />

the outcome.<br />

Community<br />

patrol<br />

reports a<br />

quiet<br />

holiday<br />

period<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

WE ALL seem to be behaving<br />

ourselves this holidays.<br />

That is the report card of the<br />

Christchurch North Community<br />

Patrol, with chairman Sam Hall<br />

describing the summertime situation<br />

as “pretty<br />

good.”<br />

Park and<br />

picnic areas<br />

have been on<br />

the patrol radar,<br />

standard for this<br />

time of year.<br />

“We haven’t<br />

actually had to Sam Hall<br />

report anything<br />

from the picnic areas around,”<br />

Hall said.<br />

“It was all very family-orientated,<br />

so it’s been quite good.”<br />

More family groups than usual<br />

seemed to be out, possibly because<br />

the Covid-19 pandemic was preventing<br />

people from leaving town<br />

for a holiday, he said.<br />

Being a frequent presence<br />

was also helpful in deterring<br />

incidents.<br />

December and <strong>January</strong> were<br />

also the time of year the patrol<br />

focused on monitoring schools,<br />

but no issues had arisen there<br />

either.<br />

Another summertime staple<br />

was fire danger patrol.<br />

Board has major focus on traffic<br />

• By Fiona Ellis<br />

TRAFFIC ISSUES,<br />

intensification and community<br />

engagement are set to be big<br />

issues for the Papanui-Innes<br />

Community Board area this<br />

year.<br />

Board<br />

chairwoman<br />

Emma Norrish<br />

said<br />

Langdons<br />

Rd was a<br />

major focus,<br />

as traffic<br />

Emma<br />

Norrish<br />

issues had<br />

arisen since<br />

the opening<br />

of the Northlink<br />

Shopping Centre.<br />

“The council has got the annual<br />

plans coming up, the budget<br />

for the coming year, and we’ll<br />

be advocating for money we<br />

can put in there for lights at the<br />

corner of Greers and Langdons,”<br />

Norrish said.<br />

The board would also be looking<br />

into how it could improve<br />

traffic flow and general safety in<br />

the area, she said.<br />

The impact the Christchurch<br />

Northern Corridor had made on<br />

traffic in St Albans was another<br />

big traffic issue for the board.<br />

“There was a survey carried<br />

out with residents last year, and<br />

that’s an ongoing thing, we’re<br />

working through the results of<br />

that.<br />

“As a result of that survey,<br />

Sarah<br />

Pallett<br />

MP for Ilam<br />

My team and I are here to<br />

help. Please get in touch with<br />

my office if you need any<br />

assistance.<br />

there.”<br />

Traffic around schools was<br />

also an ongoing issue for the<br />

board, she said.<br />

With intensification a rising<br />

issue in Papanui, Richmond<br />

and St Albans, the board would<br />

push for community amenities,<br />

especially green spaces.<br />

“It’s happening a lot and it<br />

is having a big effect on those<br />

neighbourhoods.”<br />

Ensuring there were enough<br />

green spaces was important in<br />

making a community a nice<br />

place to live, she said.<br />

The future of the former<br />

Shirley Community Centre site<br />

at 10 Shirley Rd was another<br />

focus for <strong>20</strong>22, and a feasibility<br />

study would be carried out to<br />

help decide this.<br />

This year the board would<br />

be holding briefings and public<br />

forums in different locations<br />

throughout its board area rather<br />

than operating entirely from the<br />

Papanui Service Centre.<br />

By making it easier for people<br />

to go along and talk to the<br />

board, it hoped to boost public<br />

interaction.<br />

“Community engagement is<br />

going to be a big one for us this<br />

year,” Norrish said.<br />

“We want people to know they<br />

can come to us with their issues.<br />

We want to continue advocating<br />

for the community.”<br />

Mike Davidson<br />

Councillor for Papanui<br />

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy<br />

New Year. I look forward to working<br />

with you again throughout <strong>20</strong>22.<br />

Aim to make<br />

a national<br />

surfing team<br />

• From page 1<br />

“I mean I can’t believe it. It’s<br />

been a goal for a while and I’m<br />

just so stoked to get all three<br />

finals,” he said.<br />

“I definitely didn’t expect I’d get<br />

all three.”<br />

Tyro said he will be spending<br />

the remainder<br />

of his holidays<br />

practicing as<br />

much as he can<br />

for upcoming<br />

competitions.<br />

He hopes to<br />

defend his title<br />

next year and get Aaron Lock<br />

into a national<br />

team, which he hopes will take<br />

him overseas.<br />

“There’s a few comps still<br />

coming up that I’ll be practicing<br />

for, [next up is] the Billabong<br />

grom series which is happening<br />

up in the North Island,” he<br />

said.<br />

His father, Steve Tyro, said it<br />

was “a proud day for the Tyros for<br />

sure.”<br />

Tyro was not the only Cantabrian<br />

to come away with a title<br />

from the event.<br />

Ava Henderson won the<br />

under-18 girls division, Rakiatea<br />

Poppy Entwisle the under-14 girls<br />

Making a splash but not like a bird<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

A BIG splash . . . it’s less about<br />

soaring like a bird, and more<br />

about perfecting the art of the<br />

splash according to ace manu<br />

exponent Jono Horton, 19, of<br />

Bryndwr.<br />

“It’s certainly good when you<br />

crack a good one and get the<br />

biggest splash,” he said.<br />

And there was plenty of<br />

that on display on Sunday at<br />

the Jellie Park complex, as 30<br />

bombers of all ages took part in<br />

latest round of the city council’s<br />

Manu competition.<br />

As the winner of last year’s<br />

inaugural event, Horton was<br />

aiming to defend his title<br />

and produced a good set of<br />

‘bombs’ during his time in<br />

front of the judges at the<br />

pool.<br />

THey were looking for splash<br />

volume and height, along with<br />

style and originality as they<br />

scored each entrant.<br />

Horton said they do the<br />

staple, the coffin, the cannon<br />

ball, but the most famous is the<br />

manu – “it’s the Maori word for<br />

bird.’’<br />

“You look at the water, find<br />

your jump spot, bend your<br />

knees and throw your arm<br />

up.<br />

“THen when you’re about<br />

to hit the water you fold your<br />

body into a V-shape with your<br />

back pushed into your legs and<br />

your hands covering your<br />

face.<br />

COVER YOUR EARS: Getting the form right as he enters the water at Jellie Park was<br />

ace manu exponent Jono Horton, 19, of Bryndwr, who was defending his title at the<br />

latest round of the city council’s six-round manu competition currently being held in<br />

pools around the city. (Right) – Samuel Mataio, of Papanui, leaps into the pool.<br />

PHOTOS: JOHN COSGROVE<br />

“After your butt touches the<br />

water and your back and legs<br />

are submerged, you unfold so<br />

you’re basically flat in the water<br />

and that helps give you a nice<br />

‘pop’.<br />

If you get a deep pop then<br />

most of the time your splash is<br />

powerful,” he said.<br />

In the Jellie Park round<br />

open male category, Horton<br />

was first with Sam Mataio and<br />

Marli Hetutu second and third<br />

respectively.<br />

At the end of the competition<br />

season which runs until early<br />

in March, in six of the city’s<br />

pools, the top three queens<br />

or kings of the manu will be<br />

awarded an official trophy and<br />

prizes.<br />

Spot prizes will also be<br />

handed out throughout the<br />

competition.<br />

More volunteers<br />

needed to<br />

increase patrols<br />

• From page 1<br />

“It hasn’t been as dry as it has been<br />

in previous years so it hasn’t been<br />

too bad at all.”<br />

However, there was room for<br />

improvement.<br />

The patrol had dealt with dangerous<br />

driving, fly-tipping, “the odd<br />

stolen car,” car break-ins, and some<br />

alcohol-related disorder.<br />

The last month had been consistent<br />

with the patrol’s monthly average<br />

of 50 reports of suspicious vehicles to<br />

police, and <strong>20</strong> reports of suspicious<br />

behaviour.<br />

As well as using police hotspot<br />

maps, the patrol also monitored<br />

community facebook groups to see<br />

where they might be needed.<br />

Bishopdale, Burnside and Northwood<br />

stood out as the areas where<br />

incidents seemed to occur, he said.<br />

“We’ll go nice and slowly around<br />

areas that are known to have trouble.”<br />

“We’ve got three day patrols at the<br />

moment, and we’re averaging about<br />

four evenings.”<br />

Six months ago the patrol launched<br />

a second patrol car, but this was not<br />

used as much as Hall had hoped.<br />

“We’re getting one car out regularly<br />

but to get that second vehicle<br />

out, we just need people.”<br />

“We’d like to be out every night<br />

and every day, but at the moment<br />

we’re prioritising the weekends.”<br />

The patrol had about 25 members,<br />

less than half the number involved<br />

before the Covid-19 pandemic broke<br />

out, and more volunteers were<br />

wanted.<br />

Before<br />

you start<br />

your deck<br />

check for<br />

You don’t want to be within touching distance of the<br />

power lines when the deck’s done. It might take a bit<br />

of extra thought, but it could save your life!<br />

Whetū Kohara is a special place, made<br />

up of special people. At the centre<br />

of all we do are our tamariki, who are<br />

nurtured with a holistic lens. All stars are<br />

different from one another, all are unique<br />

and treasured. Our stars are nurtured<br />

and grown to shine as brightly as they<br />

can. With the koru that sit to awhina<br />

our tamariki, there is strength to enable<br />

our stars (Tamariki/Rangatira). These<br />

koru are our values and beliefs as well<br />

as deliver our rich curriculum. We have<br />

embedded 5 Values that sit around our<br />

star. They are:<br />

Rangatiratanga (Leadership) - Initiate<br />

connections with our community -<br />

inviting our community into the school to<br />

build connections.<br />

Established as a Junior High School,<br />

Chisnallwood is specifically designed to<br />

meet the needs of students in their preadolescent<br />

years. This design has been<br />

carefully developed over many years<br />

and is based on the best that has been<br />

seen in New Zealand and Internationally.<br />

By enrolling at this school you are<br />

opening doorways to opportunities that<br />

will prepare you fully for secondary and<br />

beyond. A well-balanced mixture of<br />

specialist and home room teaching in<br />

this highly resourced environment will<br />

capture your interest and attention in a<br />

manner that will ensure your success.<br />

The Iconic front entrance to Shirley<br />

Intermediate School - which has graced<br />

north parade since 1934, gave way to<br />

the digger recently, as the long awaited<br />

building programme began. The<br />

bulk of that original building<br />

has been demolished and<br />

ground preparation is well<br />

underway for foundation<br />

work. The first stage of<br />

the building programme<br />

is the rebuild of a modern<br />

set of classrooms and<br />

technology centre with a<br />

whare style feature at the<br />

western end - in recognition<br />

of the schools well established<br />

bilingual class - Te Tahu Rua Reo.<br />

The complete project - part of the<br />

Ministry of Education’s Christchurch<br />

Schools Rebuild programme will see<br />

all buildings replaced, refurbished,<br />

or removed. There is an air of great<br />

anticipation amongst the school<br />

and community as they watch<br />

Recognised as a leader in its field,<br />

Chisnallwood is nationally renowned<br />

for its achievements particularly in the<br />

areas of music, the arts, sport and all<br />

academic endeavours. This success<br />

is brought about by the quality of the<br />

resources we have and the commitment<br />

of the highly trained and dedicated<br />

teaching staff.<br />

Our values of Respect, Relationships,<br />

Responsibilities and Resilience (Our 4Rs)<br />

enable our students to fulfill our motto<br />

which is to challenge the margins of<br />

time and explore what is beyond.<br />

offers is of the highest quality,<br />

and we are proud of our excellent<br />

academic results. Our strong<br />

academic programme is combined<br />

with varied co-curricular activities,<br />

encompassing sport, cultural and<br />

musical programmes.<br />

Hornby<br />

High School<br />

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo<br />

e lelei. Bula vinaka. Fakaalofa atu.<br />

Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te<br />

Kura Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm<br />

greetings to the Hornby High School<br />

community, and a special welcome<br />

to those of you who are new to our<br />

community.<br />

Welcome to Hornby High School where<br />

our vision is to be a ‘centre of creative<br />

excellence he puna auaha’. That means<br />

we try to foster creativity in everything<br />

we do: sports and science, governance<br />

and teaching. To do that we aim to equip<br />

students with the tools they need to be<br />

creative, critical thinkers. Our school<br />

whakatauki says:<br />

Mā te huruhuru, ka rere te manu<br />

‘Feathers enable the bird to fly’<br />

Optimism is one of those qualities<br />

that some have more than others. As<br />

educators we always begin each year<br />

with that sense of optimism about<br />

what the year, the students, and the<br />

community, will bring. For us that<br />

optimism is grounded in what we have<br />

experienced the year before, and our<br />

plans for the year to come which reflect<br />

those things that we can control.<br />

For Hornby High School that sense of<br />

optimism is well founded. In <strong>20</strong>21 we<br />

pushed for and experienced continuing<br />

student success as we have evolved<br />

our curriculum and teacher practice<br />

to match the beautiful buildings and<br />

facilities that we now use.<br />

Our pastoral system reforms are nearly<br />

complete, focussing on building strong<br />

positive relationships between teachers<br />

and learners. Our curriculum changes,<br />

designed to connect learning across<br />

subject areas to improve understanding<br />

and engagement for learners, continue<br />

to evolve. Our <strong>20</strong>21 performance in<br />

gaining a significantly greater number<br />

of university scholarships than ever<br />

before sets the scene for ever higher<br />

academic expectations and aspiration,<br />

while those seeking trades and industry<br />

qualifications also continue to excel.<br />

And then there is the ongoing focus<br />

on sporting and cultural achievement<br />

which continues to see students take<br />

their place amongst the best. Join us in<br />

our extraordinary journey.<br />

Papanui High School - Preparing<br />

students for their future<br />

Giving students the opportunity to study<br />

from an innovative and broad curriculum<br />

is critical to providing each student a<br />

pathway that meets their individual<br />

needs. We allow for a greater range and<br />

flexibility in subject choice including<br />

the utilization of the secondary/<br />

tertiary interface. This reinforces the<br />

philosophy underpinning<br />

personalised learning and<br />

is strongly supported<br />

by understanding our<br />

students’ interests,<br />

passions, talents,<br />

and ultimately<br />

their career<br />

aspirations.<br />

We understand<br />

that for effective<br />

learning to take<br />

place, it has to<br />

be implemented<br />

in such a way that<br />

students will be highly<br />

engaged. The school does<br />

this in a ‘forward thinking’ way<br />

by creating learning environments that<br />

allow our students to see value in what<br />

they do and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is<br />

what we represent and we demonstrate<br />

this by having young adults leave our<br />

school as confident learners who have<br />

gained the appropriate qualifications<br />

and social skills to become valued<br />

contributing members of society.<br />

All that we do here is reinforced by<br />

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,<br />

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and<br />

high expectations – what we call “Our<br />

Full service Model”. The school highly<br />

values the connectedness of<br />

curricular and co-curricular<br />

learning. We have<br />

a philosophical<br />

understanding<br />

that the holistic<br />

development<br />

of the student<br />

is critical to<br />

their individual<br />

success.<br />

The school has<br />

worked hard<br />

to consolidate<br />

recent initiatives to<br />

ensure sustained and<br />

continuous improvement.<br />

You are invited to view our<br />

website, school charter, ERO report,<br />

Taste of summer<br />

with a little spice<br />

Barbecued tandoori<br />

prawns<br />

Sometimes a tasty<br />

snack is required<br />

while sitting in the<br />

sun with a cold<br />

beverage. So if that<br />

is your plan for the<br />

weekend throw some<br />

prawns in this tasty<br />

marinade today and<br />

then all you need to<br />

do is thread them<br />

on to some skewers,<br />

fire up the barbecue<br />

and eat. You can<br />

cook the prawns on<br />

the barbecue or in a<br />

frying pan. Either way,<br />

make sure it’s quite<br />

hot so they get a<br />

light char in the short<br />

cooking time<br />

Ingredients<br />

Makes 10 skewers<br />

2 Tbsp thick plain<br />

yoghurt<br />

1 Tbsp bought tandoori<br />

paste<br />

1 Tbsp vegetable oil<br />

1 Tbsp grated fresh<br />

ginger<br />

2 cloves garlic, crushed<br />

1 tsp ground cumin<br />

1 tsp honey<br />

½ tsp ground turmeric<br />

<strong>20</strong> large raw, peeled<br />

prawns<br />

Coriander, mint and<br />

yoghurt relish (see recipe<br />

below).<br />

Lime wedges<br />

10 thin metal or wooden<br />

skewers.<br />

Directions<br />

Stir everything, except<br />

the prawns, together in a<br />

large shallow dish. Add the<br />

prawns and turn to coat.<br />

Cover and chill for at least<br />

a few hours if possible, or<br />

up to 24 hours.<br />

Preheat a lightly oiled<br />

barbecue chargrill plate or<br />

frying pan.<br />

Thread the prawns on<br />

to skewers and cook for<br />

1-2 minutes on each side<br />

until just cooked through.<br />

Cooking time depends on<br />

the size of the prawns.<br />

Transfer to serving<br />

platter and serve with the<br />

relish for dipping and lime<br />

wedges for squeezing over.<br />
