Up it goes: Pukeko Centre<br />

sports hall takes shape<br />

• By Natalie Pham<br />

RESIDENTS ARE delighted<br />

with visible signs of progress<br />

made at Parkland’s Pukeko<br />

Centre.<br />

Latest construction work has<br />

marked the completion of the<br />

superstructure and skeleton<br />

build of the multi-use sports<br />

hall.<br />

More work will be carried<br />

out to complete the $1.2 million<br />

hall in the following months,<br />

including infrastructure and<br />

fit out.<br />

When it opens late next year,<br />

the hall will provide space for<br />

sports activities, indoor bowls,<br />

club meetings, presentations<br />

and performances.<br />

Pukeko Centre committee<br />

member Andrew Weastell said<br />

the sports hall is ‘pretty much<br />

fully-funded now’.<br />

“I’m absolutely delighted. It<br />

has been a long, hard road, particularly<br />

the last two or three<br />

years. I want to acknowledge all<br />

the grant providers that have<br />

come on board, particularly<br />

the Christchurch City Council<br />

and local councillor Celeste<br />

Donovan.”<br />

The centre has received a<br />

number of inquiries as the<br />

community started to see the<br />

progress.<br />

Said Weastell: “We’ve got a<br />

number of groups standing by<br />

INTEREST: The centre has received a number of inquiries<br />

from groups since construction started two weeks ago.<br />

waiting for the [sports hall] to<br />

be built and opened so they can<br />

get in and use it.”<br />

When completed, it will also<br />

be used as a school hall for<br />

Parkview Primary School.<br />

Weastell said the school never<br />

received sufficient funding after<br />

the February 22, 2011, earthquake<br />

to build a new hall that is<br />

fit for purpose.<br />

“Their school hall holds 150<br />

kids, but the school roll is close<br />

to 450 so they haven’t got an<br />

indoor space for a gathering assembly<br />

for the whole school.”<br />

The next stage will be<br />

building a new breezeway and<br />

completing the car parking,<br />

while the last stage will be the<br />

completion of the landscaping<br />

and an outdoor futsal court.<br />

Toy library searching for a new librarian<br />

• By Natalie Pham<br />

A JOB opportunity for toy-lovers<br />

is now available at a library in<br />

Shirley, but with a catch.<br />

The hunt for a toy librarian<br />

at the Shirley Toy Library has<br />

begun after its longest librarian<br />

resigned this year.<br />

Said president Rachel Seddon:<br />

“It’s a cool job because you get to<br />

play with toys all day.”<br />

However, the opening hours<br />

are “a little bit odd”.<br />

At the moment, this not-forprofit<br />

library only opens twice<br />

a week – Wednesday afternoon<br />

and Saturday morning.<br />

While committee members<br />

want to open the library more<br />

often, limited funding and<br />

grants have stopped them from<br />

doing so.<br />

As most of the grants are<br />

spent on acquiring new toys,<br />

the library is left with little to no<br />

money.<br />

This also restricts them from<br />

advertising to attract more<br />

members.<br />

“We tend to make a little loss<br />

every year. We rely on grants,<br />

donations, and membership fees<br />

to keep us afloat,” Seddon said.<br />

The library will be looking into<br />

increasing its hours once there<br />

are more members on board.<br />

It used be the biggest toy<br />

library in the country with<br />

more than 100 members until<br />

a decrease in membership in<br />

recent years.<br />

It currently has 62 members,<br />

with 32 full members and 28<br />

duty members.<br />

A full membership costs<br />

$120 per year, whereas a duty<br />

membership costs $40. As duty<br />

members pay less fees, they are<br />

required to complete four duties<br />

during their membership year,<br />

including rostering at the library<br />

and fundraising.<br />

However memberships do not<br />

cover the additional rental fees<br />

ranging from 50 cents to $5,<br />

depending on the toys.<br />

Members can borrow up to 10<br />

toys at a time, with a collection<br />

of 1000 toys catering from<br />

newborn to seven years old.<br />

“While the full membership<br />

gives us more money, it also<br />

makes the finding of a new<br />

librarian more important,”<br />

Seddon said.<br />

She joined the library as a<br />

duty member in 2018 before<br />

getting more involved with the<br />

committee a year later.<br />

As a mother of two, Seddon<br />

knows how quickly a child can<br />

grow out of a toy.<br />

“So the library works very well.<br />

And it’s very good for reducing<br />

VACANCY:<br />

Shirley Toy<br />

Library is on<br />

a hunt for<br />

a new toy<br />

librarian to<br />

look after its<br />

collection of<br />

almost 1000<br />

toys, catering<br />

from<br />

newborn to<br />

seven years<br />

old.<br />

and recycling toys because<br />

everyone is sharing toys,” she<br />

said.<br />

The memories her two<br />

children have made with these<br />

toys are what she likes most<br />

about volunteering at the library.<br />

Seddon recommended people<br />

get involved with a toy library,<br />

particularly new mothers or<br />

parents.<br />

Entrepreneurship Thriving<br />

at Te Aratai College<br />

Our Business Studies has been experiencing<br />

rapid growth, resulting in several successes<br />

in the national Young Enterprise Scheme<br />

competition. Our kura is punching well above<br />

its weight, placing well in the competition and<br />

scooping up exclusive spots on the Young<br />

Enterprise Scheme trips. The Lion Foundation<br />

Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) is an<br />

opportunity for students to unleash their innerentrepreneur<br />

and experience the start-up world<br />

first-hand. YES is an experiential programme<br />

where students set up and run a real business.<br />

This year three of our students have secured<br />

spots on business trips to learn about<br />

entrepreneurship in China, Latin America,<br />

and an immersive two-day “Entrepreneurs in<br />

Action” course in Wellington.<br />

In the past, some of our ākonga have garnered<br />

local and national media attention with<br />

their endeavours. There was the “Popcoin”<br />

enterprise that spotted a gap in the snack<br />

food market – gourmet popcorn. The Year 13<br />

entrepreneurs sold the snacks at markets and<br />

pop-up stalls across Christchurch. Not only did<br />

the company make a profit and have to employ<br />

other students to meet demand, but they were<br />

named winners of the 2019 Canterbury Young<br />

Enterprise product launch.<br />

Another successful endeavour was the Year<br />

13 business team that created a children’s<br />

book, ‘A Trip Around the World’—designed to<br />

promote diversity amongst young readers and<br />

to “say no to racism.” The first print run of the<br />

book flew off the shelves resulting in<br />

a sellout within two weeks. The book<br />

can also be found in several libraries<br />

around Christchurch. Their success<br />

was also picked up in the national<br />

media. Additionally, they were<br />

presented with the excellence award<br />

for customer and market engagement<br />

at the Young Enterprise regional<br />

finals.<br />

This year Te Aratai has 10 teams<br />

from two Year 13 business classes<br />

competing in the Young Enterprise<br />

Scheme, a competition where<br />

students learn key business skills and<br />

compete against schools nationally<br />

by setting up their own businesses.<br />

Two teams have been featured<br />

in local media and have received<br />

positive feedback from the<br />

community, including local MPs.<br />

Launched by five enterprising<br />

Year 13 students, “Cheeky Grill”<br />

combines the best of Indian and<br />

Mexican food to create exceptional<br />

butter chicken burritos and<br />

quesadillas. It started when Azkiya<br />

Mohammed, Ashlyn Reddy, Nitin<br />

Ratui, Dipshay Prasad and Lupe<br />

Mahoni wanted to produce some<br />

soul-warming food. Since March<br />

this year, the students have been<br />

selling at their school sites and the Mt Pleasant<br />

Food Truck Alley. They were amazed by the<br />

success of their “Mindian” dishes. Cheeky Grill<br />

have sold out at the locations they’ve been to,<br />

with the most successful stint at the Food Truck<br />

Alley.<br />

Another successful team to feature in the<br />

news this year is the “pHyzi” team who have<br />

prototyped, produced and sold colourful fizzy<br />

bombs that can be used to wash dishes. Chief<br />

executive Manisha Baines said the group was<br />

inspired to develop the product after seeing<br />

young children becoming frustrated and bored<br />

with household chores. Marketing director<br />

Fabian Kazakos-Gardner said, “We thought<br />

about how we could help and being keen on<br />

science came up with the idea of colourful fizzy<br />

dish tablets that work like bath bombs.”<br />

Kaltan Kazakos-Gardner, our current Deputy-<br />

Head Student, who has taken Business<br />

Studies throughout his senior schooling, was<br />

recently awarded a spot in the Latin American<br />

Business programme that places Year 13<br />

NCEA Business students on a two-day course<br />

in Auckland. This course teaches students<br />

about developing business opportunities in<br />

Latin America. He says, “Business Studies at<br />

Te Aratai College offers a range of amazing<br />

opportunities that teach you real-world skills.<br />

There are also plenty of chances to be a part<br />

of activities and trips where you will meet<br />

amazing people. I was fortunate to be a part<br />

of one of these trips, which led me to meet the<br />

ambassador of Argentina.”<br />

GOAL: Harry Priestley marked his second participation in a dressage event at Christchurch Riding for the Disabled last week.<br />

Young Harry happy to be back<br />

in horse riding programme<br />

• By Natalie Pham<br />

SIX YEARS ago, Harry Priestley<br />

got frustrated and walked away<br />

from his horse riding programme.<br />

However, the 11-year-old has<br />

marked his second participation<br />

in a dressage event at the Christchurch<br />

equestrian centre last week.<br />

Harry was among 10 riders of<br />

varying ages and disabilities taking<br />

part in the event organised<br />

by Christchurch Riding for the<br />

Disabled.<br />

Because the event focused on the<br />

rider achieving the goal of completing<br />

the test and getting marked<br />

on the completion, each participant<br />

received a certificate and a score<br />

sheet.<br />

Said CHCHRDA president<br />

Philippa Parker: “We make it as<br />

fun and relaxed as possible.”<br />

All participants have been<br />

attending weekly sessions prior<br />

to the event, with each session<br />

tailoring to their specific needs and<br />

personal goals.<br />

The Christchurch South<br />

Karamata Intermediate pupil was<br />

diagnosed with autism when he<br />

was three.<br />

Said his mother Rachel: “For<br />

Harry and the way that his brain<br />

works, it’s about what Harry wants<br />

and what Harry needs. But as<br />

humans, we need to learn how to<br />

work with other people.”<br />

Harry is enrolled in two programmes<br />

– education and sport<br />

and recreation, where he gets<br />

to learn about horse riding and<br />

challenges himself with exercises<br />

require teamwork.<br />

“Everyone has helped me in all<br />

different ways,” he said.<br />

“I used to get really, really angry<br />

but now I don’t get angry at all.<br />

Well, I’m better at managing my<br />

anger than I used to.”<br />

The organisation also offers a<br />

therapy programme for riders who<br />

have higher support needs, ranging<br />

from building muscle strength to<br />

improving walking ability.<br />

Harry began the riding sessions<br />

with New Zealand Riding for the<br />

Disabled at five-years-old. However,<br />

his sessions have been on and<br />

off due to high demands.<br />

Like many riders, he started with<br />

a small pony and worked his way<br />

up. After many years, he is finally<br />

paired with Zeus - a ‘big and tall’<br />

horse.<br />

When Harry first walked in<br />

with his new horse, Parker said he<br />

looked proud of himself.<br />

“Zeus challenges Harry to<br />

work with it. That horse can be<br />

independent if it wants to, so Harry<br />

has to make sure that the horse is<br />

listening to the instruction.”<br />

SUCCESS: Harry was proud when he finally got paired up with his new horse Zeus.<br />

Kick into spring with<br />

a plant-based diet<br />

and grains, with warming results<br />

Panelle – Sicilian chickpea fritters<br />

Ingredients<br />

230g chickpea flour<br />

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped<br />

1 litre vegetable oil<br />

1 lemon<br />

Sea salt flakes<br />

PHOTOS: SIMON LAMBERT<br />

Directions<br />

Pour the water into a large bowl.<br />

Gradually add the flour, stirring constantly<br />

to remove all lumps.<br />

Pour the mixture into a saucepan, and<br />

cook over medium heat until thick like<br />

polenta or porridge.<br />

Remove from the heat and add salt and<br />

pepper to taste. Add the parsley and stir to<br />

combine.<br />

Have a clean chopping board or something<br />

similar ready.<br />

Pour the mixture immediately on to<br />

the board and spread evenly. Cover with<br />

baking paper and gently roll to a thickness<br />

of 4mm.<br />

Cool the dough for at least 2 hours to<br />

firm up.<br />

Cut the dough into rectangles sized 5cm<br />

x 3cm.<br />

Pour the oil into a deep-sided, heavybased<br />

pan. Heat to 170degC.<br />

Cook two to four panelle at a time – it<br />

is important not to overcrowd the pan.<br />

Fry until golden for 3 minutes then turn<br />

and cook for a further 3 minutes or until<br />

golden and puffy. Remove with a slotted<br />

spoon and drain on kitchen paper.<br />

Continue until all the panelle are all<br />

cooked.<br />

Squeeze over a little lemon juice and<br />

sprinkle sea salt and pepper.<br />

Enjoy them as a tasty snack.<br />

Quinoa crepes<br />

Makes 10<br />

Ingredients<br />

1½ cup quinoa<br />

1½ cups filtered water<br />

1 cup tightly packed greens such as<br />

spinach, silverbeet or kale<br />

2 tsp coconut oil or olive oil<br />

2 spring onions, roughly chopped<br />

½ tsp salt<br />

½ chilli<br />

Coconut oil for cooking<br />

Suggested toppings:<br />

Grated carrot and beets<br />

Tofu or tempeh<br />

Cashew or chickpea hummus<br />

Salad leaves<br />

Sprouts, seeds and nuts<br />

Directions<br />

Begin by generously covering the quinoa<br />

in cold water. Let sit for 12 hours at room<br />

temperature.<br />

Drain the quinoa and rinse.<br />

Place the quinoa, filtered water, greens,<br />

coconut oil, spring onions, salt and chilli<br />

in a blender.<br />

Blend until smooth.<br />

Pour the batter into a non reactive bowl<br />

and let sit at room temperature for at least<br />

6-12 hours. You will notice little bubbles<br />

appearing on the surface. This is perfectly<br />

fine, in fact this is part of the fermentation<br />

process. This stage will help be kind on<br />

your gut.<br />

When ready to cook, place a medium<br />

sized fry pan over moderate heat.<br />

Add a little coconut oil and ladle or<br />

measure about ¼ cup, gently smooth out<br />

the crepe so it is a circle 12-15cm diameter.<br />

Cook for 3 minutes or until you see the<br />

crepe change colour, flip and cook the<br />

other side for 2 minutes more. Remove and<br />

repeat until the crepes are all cooked.<br />

You can eat these with a filling and roll<br />

up and enjoy, you can use as you would<br />

bread and scoop up dips etc. I like to have<br />

many tasty bowls of ingredients laden over<br />

the table and place the crepes around so<br />

you can assemble your own.

Risingholme Community Centre<br />

sticking to their roots with new<br />

brand “Risingholme Learning”<br />

We are pleased to announce that Risingholme<br />

Community Centre is now trading as<br />

Risingholme Learning. The rebrand includes a<br />

rollout of a new logo and a new website.<br />

Our new brand pays homage to the last 75+<br />

years, the present and is a `nod to the future’.<br />

The rebrand highlights Risingholme’s focus on<br />

the importance of lifelong learning.<br />

For over 75 years Risingholme Learning has<br />

operated under the same roof, with the same<br />

goals and values: to promote community spirit<br />

through face-to-face adult education.<br />

Although the centre has officially rebranded<br />

from `Risingholme Community Centre’<br />

to ‘Risingholme Learning’ Director Lynda<br />

Megson, wants to ensure the message is still the<br />

same.<br />

“We’ve been running for over 75 years and<br />

plan to run for another 75+ years” Megson says.<br />

“We are continuing to provide the<br />

community opportunities to gain new skills,<br />

knowledge and experiences by providing a wide<br />

range of exciting courses at different locations<br />

across the city. Every term, we have over 800<br />

enrolments, so the demand for learning new<br />

things is a priority for many” Megson says.<br />

“The Risingholme homestead and park in<br />

Opawa is still our base and so acknowledges<br />

our history. We have kept our green colour<br />

and the ‘R’ of our name to reflect the park and<br />

previous branding and are using one of our<br />

park’s trees to better reflect our mission. Our<br />

own ‘tree of life’ represents the relationships<br />

we nurture with our communities: growth,<br />

learning, connections, enjoyment, and strength,<br />

all held within the maturity of our 75+ years<br />

of operation. We believe our rebrand is a fresh<br />

way of communicating this” Megson says.<br />

With term 4 fast approaching, it’s the perfect<br />

time to check out our new website and see the<br />

amazing variety of courses.<br />

Most of Risingholme Learning courses<br />

start the week of Monday 17 October <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Check individual course starting dates on the<br />

website.<br />
