Up it goes: Pukeko Centre

sports hall takes shape

• By Natalie Pham

RESIDENTS ARE delighted

with visible signs of progress

made at Parkland’s Pukeko

Centre.

Latest construction work has

marked the completion of the

superstructure and skeleton

build of the multi-use sports

hall.

More work will be carried

out to complete the $1.2 million

hall in the following months,

including infrastructure and

fit out.

When it opens late next year,

the hall will provide space for

sports activities, indoor bowls,

club meetings, presentations

and performances.

Pukeko Centre committee

member Andrew Weastell said

the sports hall is ‘pretty much

fully-funded now’.

“I’m absolutely delighted. It

has been a long, hard road, particularly

the last two or three

years. I want to acknowledge all

the grant providers that have

come on board, particularly

the Christchurch City Council

and local councillor Celeste

Donovan.”

The centre has received a

number of inquiries as the

community started to see the

progress.

Said Weastell: “We’ve got a

number of groups standing by

INTEREST: The centre has received a number of inquiries

from groups since construction started two weeks ago.

waiting for the [sports hall] to

be built and opened so they can

get in and use it.”

When completed, it will also

be used as a school hall for

Parkview Primary School.

Weastell said the school never

received sufficient funding after

the February 22, 2011, earthquake

to build a new hall that is

fit for purpose.

“Their school hall holds 150

kids, but the school roll is close

to 450 so they haven’t got an

indoor space for a gathering assembly

for the whole school.”

The next stage will be

building a new breezeway and

completing the car parking,

while the last stage will be the

completion of the landscaping

and an outdoor futsal court.

Toy library searching for a new librarian

• By Natalie Pham

A JOB opportunity for toy-lovers

is now available at a library in

Shirley, but with a catch.

The hunt for a toy librarian

at the Shirley Toy Library has

begun after its longest librarian

resigned this year.

Said president Rachel Seddon:

“It’s a cool job because you get to

play with toys all day.”

However, the opening hours

are “a little bit odd”.

At the moment, this not-forprofit

library only opens twice

a week – Wednesday afternoon

and Saturday morning.

While committee members

want to open the library more

often, limited funding and

grants have stopped them from

doing so.

As most of the grants are

spent on acquiring new toys,

the library is left with little to no

money.

This also restricts them from

advertising to attract more

members.

“We tend to make a little loss

every year. We rely on grants,

donations, and membership fees

to keep us afloat,” Seddon said.

The library will be looking into

increasing its hours once there

are more members on board.

It used be the biggest toy

library in the country with

more than 100 members until

a decrease in membership in

recent years.

It currently has 62 members,

with 32 full members and 28

duty members.

A full membership costs

$120 per year, whereas a duty

membership costs $40. As duty

members pay less fees, they are

required to complete four duties

during their membership year,

including rostering at the library

and fundraising.

However memberships do not

cover the additional rental fees

ranging from 50 cents to $5,

depending on the toys.

Members can borrow up to 10

toys at a time, with a collection

of 1000 toys catering from

newborn to seven years old.

“While the full membership

gives us more money, it also

makes the finding of a new

librarian more important,”

Seddon said.

She joined the library as a

duty member in 2018 before

getting more involved with the

committee a year later.

As a mother of two, Seddon

knows how quickly a child can

grow out of a toy.

“So the library works very well.

And it’s very good for reducing

and recycling toys because

everyone is sharing toys,” she

said.

The memories her two

children have made with these

toys are what she likes most

about volunteering at the library.

Seddon recommended people

get involved with a toy library,

particularly new mothers or

parents.

The Daughter of Auschwitz

My story of resilience, survival and Hope

by tova Friedman, Malcolm Brabant,

Foreword by Ben Kingsley

The harrowing, moving and poignant account of one of the youngest

was sent to an extermination camp, and was one of the few people who

entered a gas chamber and lived to tell her story.

‘I am a survivor. That comes with a survivor’s obligation to represent one

Entrepreneurship Thriving

at Te Aratai College

Our Business Studies has been experiencing

rapid growth, resulting in several successes

in the national Young Enterprise Scheme

competition. Our kura is punching well above

its weight, placing well in the competition and

scooping up exclusive spots on the Young

Enterprise Scheme trips. The Lion Foundation

Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) is an

opportunity for students to unleash their innerentrepreneur

and experience the start-up world

first-hand. YES is an experiential programme

where students set up and run a real business.

This year three of our students have secured

spots on business trips to learn about

entrepreneurship in China, Latin America,

and an immersive two-day “Entrepreneurs in

Action” course in Wellington.

In the past, some of our ākonga have garnered

local and national media attention with

their endeavours. There was the “Popcoin”

enterprise that spotted a gap in the snack

food market – gourmet popcorn. The Year 13

entrepreneurs sold the snacks at markets and

pop-up stalls across Christchurch. Not only did

the company make a profit and have to employ

other students to meet demand, but they were

named winners of the 2019 Canterbury Young

Enterprise product launch.

Another successful endeavour was the Year

13 business team that created a children’s

book, ‘A Trip Around the World’—designed to

promote diversity amongst young readers and

to “say no to racism.” The first print run of the

book flew off the shelves resulting in

a sellout within two weeks. The book

can also be found in several libraries

around Christchurch. Their success

was also picked up in the national

media. Additionally, they were

presented with the excellence award

for customer and market engagement

at the Young Enterprise regional

finals.

This year Te Aratai has 10 teams

from two Year 13 business classes

competing in the Young Enterprise

Scheme, a competition where

students learn key business skills and

compete against schools nationally

by setting up their own businesses.

Two teams have been featured

in local media and have received

positive feedback from the

community, including local MPs.

Launched by five enterprising

Year 13 students, “Cheeky Grill”

combines the best of Indian and

Mexican food to create exceptional

butter chicken burritos and

quesadillas. It started when Azkiya

Mohammed, Ashlyn Reddy, Nitin

Ratui, Dipshay Prasad and Lupe

Mahoni wanted to produce some

soul-warming food. Since March

this year, the students have been

selling at their school sites and the Mt Pleasant

Food Truck Alley. They were amazed by the

success of their “Mindian” dishes. Cheeky Grill

have sold out at the locations they’ve been to,

with the most successful stint at the Food Truck

Alley.

Another successful team to feature in the

news this year is the “pHyzi” team who have

prototyped, produced and sold colourful fizzy

bombs that can be used to wash dishes. Chief

executive Manisha Baines said the group was

inspired to develop the product after seeing

young children becoming frustrated and bored

with household chores. Marketing director

Fabian Kazakos-Gardner said, “We thought

about how we could help and being keen on

science came up with the idea of colourful fizzy

dish tablets that work like bath bombs.”

Kaltan Kazakos-Gardner, our current Deputy-

Head Student, who has taken Business

Studies throughout his senior schooling, was

recently awarded a spot in the Latin American

Business programme that places Year 13

NCEA Business students on a two-day course

in Auckland. This course teaches students

about developing business opportunities in

Latin America. He says, “Business Studies at

Te Aratai College offers a range of amazing

opportunities that teach you real-world skills.

There are also plenty of chances to be a part

of activities and trips where you will meet

amazing people. I was fortunate to be a part

of one of these trips, which led me to meet the

ambassador of Argentina.”

Shirley Boys’ High School kapa haka group was invited

to perform for Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori at The Palms

shopping centre two weeks ago. While the group wasn’t

at full strength due to exam week, it was great to come

together and celebrate te reo Māori.

The Harcourts Geraldine Festival,

featuring the Alpine Energy Art

Exhibition and Awards, is delighted

to be returning after a hiatus during

COVID, with plenty in store for

everyone to enjoy at this year’s event.

The Festival opens on the evening of

Thursday 10th November with the

Alpine Energy Art Awards, marking

the 25th year that Alpine Energy

has supported and sponsored the

exhibition. We will be celebrating this

important silver anniversary in style

that evening with refreshments and

nibbles, and awards announcements,

plus the first chance to view and

purchase art. Everyone is welcome.

Friday gives way to the busy and vibrant

street market in the centre of Geraldine,

with local favourites OJ and the Drama

Queens entertaining the crowds.

Saturday is the main event, when the

peaceful Geraldine Domain becomes

a bustling hub for a day as stalls, food

trucks, kids’ entertainment, and live music

blend to create a great family day out.

Our open gardens are a hugely popular

part of the festival, and most are open

Friday through to Sunday, giving

everyone a chance enjoy them at

their leisure. There are also a range of

complementary events taking place in

and around Geraldine that weekend,

including vintage car displays and rides,

book-a-rama, Soul Food Concert and

much more.

FOR YOUR FUTURE

Vote now. Voting closes noon, 8 October

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

Young Harry happy to be back

in horse riding programme

• By Natalie Pham

SIX YEARS ago, Harry Priestley

got frustrated and walked away

from his horse riding programme.

However, the 11-year-old has

marked his second participation

in a dressage event at the Christchurch

equestrian centre last week.

Harry was among 10 riders of

varying ages and disabilities taking

part in the event organised

by Christchurch Riding for the

Disabled.

Because the event focused on the

rider achieving the goal of completing

the test and getting marked

on the completion, each participant

received a certificate and a score

sheet.

Said CHCHRDA president

Philippa Parker: “We make it as

fun and relaxed as possible.”

All participants have been

attending weekly sessions prior

to the event, with each session

tailoring to their specific needs and

personal goals.

The Christchurch South

Karamata Intermediate pupil was

diagnosed with autism when he

was three.

Said his mother Rachel: “For

Harry and the way that his brain

works, it’s about what Harry wants

and what Harry needs. But as

humans, we need to learn how to

work with other people.”

Harry is enrolled in two programmes

– education and sport

and recreation, where he gets

to learn about horse riding and

challenges himself with exercises

require teamwork.

“Everyone has helped me in all

different ways,” he said.

“I used to get really, really angry

but now I don’t get angry at all.

Well, I’m better at managing my

anger than I used to.”

The organisation also offers a

therapy programme for riders who

have higher support needs, ranging

from building muscle strength to

improving walking ability.

Harry began the riding sessions

with New Zealand Riding for the

Disabled at five-years-old. However,

his sessions have been on and

off due to high demands.

Like many riders, he started with

a small pony and worked his way

up. After many years, he is finally

paired with Zeus - a ‘big and tall’

horse.

When Harry first walked in

with his new horse, Parker said he

looked proud of himself.

“Zeus challenges Harry to

work with it. That horse can be

independent if it wants to, so Harry

has to make sure that the horse is

listening to the instruction.”

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

Kick into spring with

a plant-based diet

Alison Lambert has been balancing her weekly food budget

by digging into her pantry and experimenting with pulses

and grains, with warming results

Panelle – Sicilian chickpea fritters

Ingredients

230g chickpea flour

3 cups water, room temperature

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 litre vegetable oil

1 lemon

Sea salt flakes

Freshly cracked black pepper

PHOTOS: SIMON LAMBERT

Directions

Pour the water into a large bowl.

Gradually add the flour, stirring constantly

to remove all lumps.

Pour the mixture into a saucepan, and

cook over medium heat until thick like

polenta or porridge.

Remove from the heat and add salt and

pepper to taste. Add the parsley and stir to

combine.

Have a clean chopping board or something

similar ready.

Pour the mixture immediately on to

the board and spread evenly. Cover with

baking paper and gently roll to a thickness

Quinoa crepes

Makes 10

Ingredients

1½ cup quinoa

1½ cups filtered water

1 cup tightly packed greens such as

spinach, silverbeet or kale

2 tsp coconut oil or olive oil

2 spring onions, roughly chopped

½ tsp salt

½ chilli

Coconut oil for cooking

Suggested toppings:

Grated carrot and beets

Tofu or tempeh

Cashew or chickpea hummus

Salad leaves

Sprouts, seeds and nuts

Directions

Begin by generously covering the quinoa

in cold water. Let sit for 12 hours at room

temperature.

Drain the quinoa and rinse.

Place the quinoa, filtered water, greens,

coconut oil, spring onions, salt and chilli

in a blender.

Blend until smooth.

Pour the batter into a non reactive bowl

and let sit at room temperature for at least

6-12 hours. You will notice little bubbles

appearing on the surface. This is perfectly

fine, in fact this is part of the fermentation

process. This stage will help be kind on

your gut.

When ready to cook, place a medium

sized fry pan over moderate heat.

Add a little coconut oil and ladle or

measure about ¼ cup, gently smooth out

the crepe so it is a circle 12-15cm diameter.

Cook for 3 minutes or until you see the

crepe change colour, flip and cook the

other side for 2 minutes more. Remove and

repeat until the crepes are all cooked.

You can eat these with a filling and roll

up and enjoy, you can use as you would

bread and scoop up dips etc. I like to have

many tasty bowls of ingredients laden over

the table and place the crepes around so

you can assemble your own.

Risingholme Community Centre

sticking to their roots with new

brand “Risingholme Learning”

We are pleased to announce that Risingholme

Community Centre is now trading as

Risingholme Learning. The rebrand includes a

rollout of a new logo and a new website.

Our new brand pays homage to the last 75+

years, the present and is a `nod to the future’.

The rebrand highlights Risingholme’s focus on

the importance of lifelong learning.

For over 75 years Risingholme Learning has

operated under the same roof, with the same

goals and values: to promote community spirit

through face-to-face adult education.

Although the centre has officially rebranded

from `Risingholme Community Centre’

to ‘Risingholme Learning’ Director Lynda

Megson, wants to ensure the message is still the

same.

“We’ve been running for over 75 years and

plan to run for another 75+ years” Megson says.

“We are continuing to provide the

community opportunities to gain new skills,

knowledge and experiences by providing a wide

range of exciting courses at different locations

across the city. Every term, we have over 800

enrolments, so the demand for learning new

things is a priority for many” Megson says.

“The Risingholme homestead and park in

Opawa is still our base and so acknowledges

our history. We have kept our green colour

and the ‘R’ of our name to reflect the park and

previous branding and are using one of our

park’s trees to better reflect our mission. Our

own ‘tree of life’ represents the relationships

we nurture with our communities: growth,

learning, connections, enjoyment, and strength,

all held within the maturity of our 75+ years

of operation. We believe our rebrand is a fresh

way of communicating this” Megson says.

With term 4 fast approaching, it’s the perfect

time to check out our new website and see the

amazing variety of courses.

Most of Risingholme Learning courses

start the week of Monday 17 October 2022.

Check individual course starting dates on the

website.
