With weather warmingupand<br />

the borders open, it’s time for a<br />

reminder for people to stay<br />

safe whenventuring into the<br />

outdoors.<br />

Land Search and Rescue<br />

(LandSAR) operates from62<br />

bases across the country, with<br />

over 3500 volunteers.<br />

They are actively involved<br />

with search, rescue, and<br />

recovery of hundreds of lost,<br />

injured, or missing Kiwis each<br />

year, andthey do it all out of<br />

love for their communities.<br />

LandSAR CEO Carl McOnie<br />

said ‘‘between 1st July 2021<br />

and 30th June <strong>2022</strong>, Land<br />

Searchand Rescue volunteers<br />

were involved in 373 search<br />

and rescue operationsand two<br />

Civil Defence operations,<br />

bringing home364 people and<br />

committing acombined<br />

<strong>10</strong>0,345 volunteer hoursto<br />

searchand rescueactivities.’’<br />

He said searches were up<br />

18% compared to the previous<br />

year.<br />

Recentmonths have seen<br />

volunteers from Methven and<br />

Rakaia groups kept active.<br />

They were called in to<br />

search for atramper who had<br />

been separated from hisgroup<br />

in August while walking near<br />

Benmore Hut.<br />

Several Canterburyteams,<br />

including two search dogs,<br />

were helicoptered in and the<br />

tramper was located alive and<br />

well.<br />

Paul McFall, avolunteer at<br />

the Rakaia Search and Rescue<br />

base,said, the mostimportant<br />

thingtoremember when in the<br />

outdoors is to staytogether ­<br />

neversplit from your group or<br />

companions.<br />

‘‘Most searches happen<br />

because of separation,’’ he<br />

said.‘‘Ideally have aPersonal<br />

College prohibits use of cellphones<br />

INDI.ROBERTS<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> College has made acall on<br />

the use of cellphones within the school,<br />

with principal Ross Preece saying the<br />

new policy will address anumber of<br />

concerns, including bullying.<br />

Anotice was sent out to parents last<br />

week which outlined the new school<br />

policy on the use of cellphones.<br />

‘‘Following due consideration, our<br />

Board of Trustees has made the<br />

following decision effective from the<br />

start of the 2023 school year,’’ Mr Preece<br />

wrote.<br />

‘‘From the beginning of the school day<br />

until the end, the phone is to be turned<br />

off and kept in abag (not in apocket).<br />

This includes interval and lunchtime.<br />

‘‘If aphone is seen by astaff member<br />

it will be confiscated. Refusal to hand<br />

over the phone will become apastoral<br />

matter. Year 13 students will be allowed<br />

discreet use of cell phones.<br />

‘‘College management will provide<br />

more detail on the day­to­day<br />

management of this policy in due<br />

course.’’<br />

Mr Preece outlined the reasoning<br />

behind the decision which included<br />

creating abetter learning environment<br />

for students and reducing the amount of<br />

harmful content distributed through<br />

social media.<br />

‘‘Our aim is to enhance both the social<br />

and academic curriculum,’’ he said. ‘‘We<br />

have gathered evidence over the past<br />

year which shows the impact of cell<br />

phones on student learning and ability<br />

to relate to others.’’<br />

He recognised that cellphones are<br />

distracting and can impact students’<br />

ability to focus which can have a<br />

negative affect on achievement rates.<br />

He also acknowledged cellphones<br />

provided platforms in which students<br />

can access, create and distribute<br />

harmful content which may be used to<br />

bully or harass other students.<br />

Mr Preece said by eliminating the use<br />

of cellphones within school hours, he<br />

hoped to see an improvement in social<br />

interactions between students.<br />

‘‘Currently, we see large numbers of<br />

students sitting at breaks and staring at<br />

their screens,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘Strengthening skill sets such as oral<br />

language requires time spent talking to<br />

other people.<br />

‘‘This is developed through formal<br />

and informal situations, both in class<br />

time and during interval and lunchtime.<br />

‘‘Conversations are required in order to<br />

work together, to connect and<br />

collaborate. The ability to relate and<br />

engage positively with others also plays<br />

an important role in enhancing the<br />

culture of our school.’’<br />

Mr Preece said the board had spent<br />

the last year evaluating the use of<br />

cellphones during school time before<br />

reaching this decision.<br />

He had previously claimed alarge<br />

portion of student bullying occurred on<br />

social media platforms, of which the<br />

school had little jurisdiction due to<br />

privacy laws.<br />

‘‘It’s areal challenge for schools to<br />

deal with the influence of social media,’’<br />

he said. ‘‘Particularly when parents give<br />

their children unfettered access.’’<br />

He said when it comes to bullying, ‘‘If<br />

it happens at school then we can deal<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> College principal Ross Preece<br />

has announced the decision to ban the<br />

use of cellphones within school hours.<br />

with it. But the vast majority of stuff is<br />

online, it’s actually quite rare to have a<br />

physical encounter ... most of the<br />

damage is done via social media.’’<br />

He said the Board of Trustees had<br />

considered changing the policy on<br />

cellphone use last year, but had opted to<br />

give it more consideration.<br />

‘‘<strong>Ashburton</strong> College is working to<br />

develop learners who are engaged in<br />

learning for life, collaborative,<br />

connected and creative.<br />

‘‘We want to ensure that <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

College is providing an environment<br />

where students are encouraged to<br />

develop these skills, attitudes and<br />

attributes.’’<br />

He said that parents who need to<br />

contact students throughout the day will<br />

still be able to do so through the school’s<br />

office.<br />

The new policy will come into effect at<br />

the start of the 2023 school year.<br />

Picnic time for teddy bears ... Dainty<br />

Dancers from Life Dance Academy<br />

have been rehearsing their Teddy<br />

Bears' picnic dance ahead of their end<br />

of year Christmas shows.<br />

Fire chief reassures community<br />

Chief fire officer Alan Burgess, of<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Volunteer Fire Brigade,<br />

is reassuring the public of their<br />

safety during nationwide strikes this<br />

month planned by members of the<br />

New Zealand Professional<br />

Firefighters Union (NZPFU).<br />

NZPFU represents 1739 employed<br />

firefighters and issued strike notices<br />

for three one­hour full stoppages of<br />

work from 11am to noon on<br />

<strong>November</strong> 21, 25, and 28.<br />

Mr Burgess said ‘‘We have<br />

received comments from concerned<br />

members of the public who are<br />

worried that the strike action puts<br />

them at risk.<br />

‘‘I can reassure the public that the<br />

volunteer fire service in <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

is not part of the union action and<br />

will continue to turn out and protect<br />

the community as usual.’’<br />

Volunteer firefighters make up<br />

85% of New Zealand’s frontline fire<br />

services and are the first responders<br />

across 93% of New Zealand’s land<br />

mass.<br />

The United Fire Brigades’<br />

Association (UFBA) says local<br />

firefighters will turn out as usual and<br />

protect the public during the<br />

employed firefighters union’s latest<br />

stop work action.<br />

Earlier, strikes scheduled by the<br />

NZPFU were called off while<br />

negotiations took place.<br />

They were re­established later<br />

that day.<br />

While the UFBA says they support<br />

fair pay for employed firefighters<br />

and is keen to see the ongoing<br />

dispute settled as soon as possible,<br />

they stand by their decision that<br />

significant funding to settle the<br />

claim must not come from funding<br />

needed to equip and train volunteers<br />

brigades, it must be new money for<br />

FENZ.<br />

UFBA board chairPeterDunne<br />

said ‘‘While we respect the union’s<br />

role is to advocate for the terms and<br />

conditions of employmentfor<br />

employed firefightersasitsees fit,<br />

thecosts to settle their industrial<br />

claimmustnot come fromfunding<br />

to supportvolunteers,either<br />

directly or indirectly,‘‘ he said.<br />

‘‘NewZealand’s fire servicesare<br />

largely reliant on thegoodwillof<br />

volunteer firefighters, their<br />

employers andtheir own<br />

businessesifthey are selfemployed.<br />

‘‘They risk theirhealth and<br />

wellbeingfor us all,and they<br />

deserve more support, not less.”<br />

NCEA Exams Underway<br />

Our NCEA exams are underway. For all secondary<br />

schools there isaremarkable change of emphasis<br />

regarding the importance attached to external<br />

exams.<br />

When Iwas in Year 11, School Certificate exams<br />

were very much ‘all or nothing’, which placedhuge<br />

pressureonstudents.<br />

Now students can achieve apass in NCEA with a<br />

healthy diet of internal assessments. This means that, for the students<br />

who are satisfied with passing, there isadistinct lack of enthusiasm for<br />

serious study orspending three hours in an exam. This is anation-wide<br />

trendand the studentsattempting the exams areeither aimingfor Merit<br />

or Excellence Endorsement; or they have‘lefttheir runlate’and they need<br />

someextra credits to passthe year.<br />

Interestingly, the changes to NCEA Level 1which apply from 2024 will,<br />

by design, force students tocomplete external assessments in arange<br />

of subjects.<br />

NetsafeWebinar<br />

My thanks toall whānau members who took the opportunity to access<br />

the NetsafeWebinar that was organised and advertised for last Tuesday<br />

evening. As mostofuswillappreciate,the misuse of social media has the<br />

abilitytocause serious harm.<br />

In my experiencemanyparents/caregivers areaware thattheir child has<br />

received potentially harmful messaging via some form ofsocial media.<br />

However, it is alsoveryclear that many parents/caregivers areunaware of<br />

the potentially harmful messaging their child maybecreating orsharing.<br />

We work very hard toensure the well-being of our students but, of<br />

course, wecannot control the messaging and content that happens<br />

outside of school.<br />

2023 College Cellphone Policy<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> College is working to develop learners who are engaged in<br />

learning forlife, collaborative, connectedand creative.Wewanttoensure<br />

that <strong>Ashburton</strong> Collegeisprovidinganenvironmentwherestudents are<br />

encouraged to develop these skills,attitudes and attributes.<br />

Ouraim istoenhanceboth the social and academiccurriculum. We have<br />

gathered evidence over the past year which shows the impact ofcell<br />

phones on studentlearning and ability to relate to others.<br />

Strengtheningskill sets such as oral languagerequires timespenttalking<br />

to other people.This is developedthrough formal and informal situations,<br />

bothinclass timeand during interval andlunchtimes.Conversationsare<br />

requiredinorder to work together,toconnectand collaborate. Theability<br />

to relate and engage positively with others also plays animportant role<br />

in enhancingthe cultureofour school.<br />

Afterdue consideration, our BoardofTrusteeshas made thefollowing<br />

decision, effectivefromthe startofthe 2023 school year:<br />

1. From the beginning of the school day until the end, the phone isto<br />

be turned off andkeptinabag (notinapocket). This includes interval<br />

and lunchtimes.<br />

2. If aphone is seen by astaff memberitwill be confiscated.<br />

3. Refusal to hand over the phonewill become apastoral matter.<br />

4. Year 13 students will bealloweddiscreetuse of cell phones.<br />

5. College management will provide more detail onthe day-to-day<br />

management of this policyindue course.<br />

Thereare three drivers behind this decision:<br />

Firstly-cell phones aredesigned to be addictiveand distracting,and not<br />

having them around will improve our learners’ focus and ability to stay<br />

on task;thusimproving results and achievement.<br />

Secondly -some students arecreating or sharing content thatisharmful<br />

or incites others to do somethinginappropriate,which causes disruption<br />

to aschool environment.<br />

Thirdly -the lack of phone accessibility will encourage students to<br />

interact with others orbeactive atbreak times. Currently, wesee large<br />

numbersofstudents sitting at breaks andstaring at their screens.<br />

This decision has been under consideration for ayear. Our Board of<br />

Trustees wantedassurancethatstudentswouldn’t miss out on access to<br />

learning devices.<br />

If you need to get amessage toyour child during the day, then the<br />

College Office willbeabletodeliver anyessential messages.<br />

We thank youfor your supportinthismatter. Ross Preece<br />

Principal’s Address<br />

Following the welcome by<br />

Deputy Principal and MC for the<br />

evening, Jono Hay, Principal Ross<br />

Preece welcomed and addressed<br />

attendees. Acknowledged was<br />

the celebratory purpose of the<br />

evening, andthe opportunityfor the<br />

AshColl community to celebrate the<br />

achievements.<br />

Ross noted that senior students<br />

had had three years of disruption<br />

and challenges as they navigated<br />

the interruptions of COVID, time<br />

out of school, illness or that of<br />

family members, teacher absences<br />

and online learning. The out-ofclassroom<br />

activities which often provide lasting school memories had<br />

certainly been disrupted over the past three years.<br />

COVID,Ross said,had providedaunique world-wide shared experiencewith<br />

everyone on the planet facing the same health and communitychallenges<br />

at the same time.<br />

Looking to the future Ross reminded students that certain skills and<br />

dispositions will be required for success, and especially for future<br />

employment. Included in this are the skills of flexibility and adaptability,<br />

creativityand co-operation, plus working with digital tools in their entirety.<br />

Ross suggestedthatthe students’experiences over the last three years had<br />

equipped them well for acquiring these skills, through learning outside of<br />

anormal classroom setting, and becoming creative problem-solvers and<br />

working collaboratively with others,inmanycases via online or social media.<br />

Ross acknowledged the challenges for teachers, and their hard work over<br />

the challenging COVID years working with and for students, online and in<br />

the classroom and, attimes, managing both learning options at the same<br />

time,while also supporting catch-up learning.<br />

Thanked were the Board ofTrustees who continued to provide oversight<br />

and wisdom during the challenging time. Ross thanked them for their<br />

governance on behalf of our students and staff.<br />

Ross wished students all the best as they leave College, saying they<br />

had every reason to be excited about their future prospects with career<br />

opportunities availableand the returnofinternational travel.<br />

Students were remindedthatthe AshColl WayValues of striving to Achieve<br />

Quality, Show Pride, and be Respectful to others would always stand them<br />

in good stead. His one piece ofadvice for students into the future was to<br />

find something that challenges and brings asense of fulfilment, saying a<br />

workingcareer is toolong to be doing something youdon’t enjoyorwhich<br />

doesn’t bring satisfaction. He concluded with the advice that students are<br />

in charge of theirown destinyand should look to have afuturewhich feeds<br />

their soul.<br />

Traditionally,Ross looks back eighteen years to inventions that arrivedinthe<br />

worldatabout the same time as the Year 13 students.<br />

In 2004 thecool newthing to do wasblogging! Theother notable invention<br />

was the creation of Facebook which now regularly connects two billion<br />

people around the world, albeit the social media platforms often provide<br />

amixed blessing.<br />

Ross concluded by congratulating the students on their successes, and<br />

wishing them well fortheir futures.<br />

never thought this day would<br />

come; saying they wished for<br />

its quick delivery, crossed days<br />

off calendars, counted hours,<br />

minutes and seconds and<br />

now that it’s here she said ‘I’m<br />

sorry it is, because it means<br />

leaving friends who inspire me<br />

and teachers who’ve been my<br />

mentors,somanypeople who’ve<br />

shaped my life, and my fellow<br />

students’ lives impermeably<br />

and forever. It is abitter-sweet<br />

feeling, with afamiliar chapterclosing and another unknownone opening’.<br />

Jorja said that their College journey had been full of inconsistency and<br />

change; unexpected, unrelenting,unusual,uncertainand unprecedented.<br />

However, Jorja linked the word ‘unprecedented’ with all of the Year 13<br />

students, emphasising they areunprecedented,theyare asecondaryschool<br />

class thathas donesomething never knownbefore.<br />

Jorja said that, as ayear group, all had grown and overcome so much<br />

during the last year three years, and the fact they were sitting at the<br />

Year 13 Graduation Ceremony showed their strength and resilience. They<br />

had formed relationships with the people they love, people they care<br />

about, people who went on this crazyjourney along with them, the journey<br />

without aconsistent school week, yet still being stressed out over internal<br />

assessment deadlines! Students were challenged to continue to encourage<br />

and inspire themselves and the people aroundthem, adding thatmanyhad<br />

inspired her.<br />

Looking ahead wasafuturefast approaching,moving away from our friends<br />

and families for many, and leaving behind the familiar. Itwould beafirst<br />

time venturing into the ‘big wide world’ whether tertiary, apprenticeships,<br />

jobs or agap year.<br />

Acknowledged were parents and family members who had brought<br />

students tothis point, believing in their children, with Jorja specifically<br />

thanking her family for all of their support, including when the challenges<br />

of being overwhelmed set in.<br />

Appreciatedwerethe dedicatedteachers at <strong>Ashburton</strong> College,notingtheir<br />

commitment tostudents’education and ability tomake College both fun<br />

andasafeplacefor acquiring knowledge.<br />

Jorja thanked staff and the Year 13 Leavers for entrusting her with the role<br />

of Head Student, one ofher most challenging yet rewarding experiences.<br />

Jorja said she would be forever indebted to the number of opportunities<br />

which had arisenduring her timeinthe ‘red stripes’. Supportand help from<br />

the HeadStudentteam andfellowStudent Leaders wasacknowledged with<br />

appreciation, including from all students.<br />

In conclusion Jorja had one sentiment she wanted students to take away<br />

from her speech, saying ‘you are all capable of taking on any obstacle that<br />

maylie in your life’.<br />

Allhad faced achallenging high school experiencethathad never happened<br />

before,had overcome it andmade it worthwhile.<br />

Thestudents were challenged to grasp everyopportunitythatcomes their<br />

way. Having shown immense grit and determinationthey were encouraged<br />

to embracethisresilienceinfuturegoals,jobs and aspirations. Jorja signed<br />

off with the wise words of Harry Styles –‘Treat People With Kindness’–as<br />

this will get youwhereyou want to be in life’.

Congratulations<br />

Head StudentSpeech –Jack Brown<br />

Jack opened by also thanking his<br />

parents, staff, students, Year 13<br />

students and fellow Head Students<br />

and StudentLeaders.<br />

Jack advised that hewanted tomake<br />

his last speech fun and to the point,<br />

so he startedwith agame‘put afinger<br />

down’ifstudents had –<br />

• more than one fire alarm gooffat<br />

school in aday.<br />

• forgotten to wear sunscreen and<br />

got sunburnt on asummer day at<br />

school<br />

• achange of Akoteacher at least onceduring their time at AshColl<br />

• forgotten to bring acoin on non-uniformday.<br />

• forgotten what aprevious Head Student had said in their prize-giving<br />

speech.<br />

Jack then said he knew the above was‘cringeworthy’but he wantedtoget<br />

the point across that everything is temporary, with all of the above having<br />

happened in the past while students are now moving forward into the<br />

future.<br />

He suggested that students may have thought they would be Year 9<br />

students forever, but nowthey are‘big,scary Year 13 students’. He said that,<br />

yes, he is aHead Student now, but next year all Year 13s move out oftheir<br />

AshCollnest into the big, wide worldand anew set of students will fill that<br />

space.<br />

However, no matter whereeach Year 13 studentisheaded,thirteen years of<br />

schooling has been aride for all, and Jack noted they had make it through<br />

and are ready for the sequel; all on their own paths –whether university,<br />

apprenticeship,orfull-time work.<br />

Forall thatmay be forgotten, Jack reminded students thatnow is ‘our time,<br />

keep going’.<br />

Jack concluded withsome wordsfromhis‘best friend Taylor Swift’!’So make<br />

the friendship bracelets,take themomentand tasteit. You’ve no reason to<br />

be afraid.You’reonyour own, kid. Yeah, youcan facethis.’<br />

Guest Speaker –HayleyWhiting<br />

It was our very real pleasure to<br />

introduceHayley Whiting as our guest<br />

speaker forthis evening.<br />

Hayley is a former College student<br />

who, this year, represented New<br />

Zealand at the Birmingham <strong>2022</strong><br />

Commonwealth Games in her chosen<br />

sportofweightlifting.<br />

Hayley’s story included what is<br />

required to achieve highly, rather<br />

than just achieving well, and what it<br />

takes to respond to pressure.<br />

Hayley introduced herself as a<br />

proud Mid Canterbury and former<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>College wahine,feeling greathonour at being asked to speakto<br />

those who sit whereshe oncesat.<br />

Hayley did ask what she had to add, what value did she bring, and<br />

determined her value as being in sharing her story. Thestory of having big<br />

goals,following her heart, being sensible,taking risks,being brave,ensuring<br />

she had strong supporters and working hard toprove to herself that she<br />

could be great.<br />

Hayley outlined her history in<strong>Ashburton</strong> through to graduating with a<br />

Bachelor of Physiotherapyin2014,being based in Christchurch in 2019 when<br />

she relocated toher current home in MtMaunganui where she has been a<br />

self-employed physiotherapist for the last two years. Hayley highlighted<br />

her <strong>Ashburton</strong>College experienceasone she will alwaystreasure, saying it<br />

prepared her academically for progressing through university and into her<br />

chosen career, taught her many resilience and hard work lessons through<br />

both academic and sporting pathways. Abreak from sport ensued while<br />

at university asshe chose to focus on studies and enjoying the university<br />

experience.<br />

From 2013 she began somecasual training and cross-fit exercise.Moving to<br />

Christchurch in 2014 was when the love for weightlifting really took hold,<br />

despiteitbeing abrutal sport. Training forapproximately 15 hours per week,<br />

all year, year after year, leads into two ormaybe three big competitions a<br />

year –amaximum of six minutes on stage, and three chances only at each<br />

discipline: the Snatch, Clean and Jerk.<br />

Hayley then outlined her various selections,the firstfor aNew Zealandteam<br />

being at the end of2016, having ‘hit’AGrade and being eligible for New<br />

Zealand team qualification, competing forNew Zealand forthe first time in<br />

March2017 inMelbourne.<br />

Significantly,competitors had to fully fund their uniformand travel.Hayley<br />

tellingly noted –‘enter here the endless support ofher parents, family and<br />

community’.<br />

However, success is seldom linear, and Hayley outlined very honestly the<br />

times of under-performing and what this requires from an athlete. Her<br />

first telling event was at her second New Zealand national championships<br />

in September 2017 where she missed all her snatches and was out of the<br />

competition. Devastation wasdescribed as an ‘understatement’.<br />

Events were to follow, with some misses and some close outcomes on a<br />

thirdattempt,and some placings; and being ruledineligible forthe Oceania<br />

Championships in New Caledonia due to her log whereabouts not being<br />

updated. Drug testers can and do turnuptoanathletes house to bloodand<br />

urine test at 5:00am.<br />

However, with family support, it was decided to attend this trip as part of<br />

the team and with qualification standards within weightlifting New Zealand<br />

increasing, Hayley saw this as maybe alast chance tobeapart ofthe high<br />

performanceenvironment.<br />

This trip changed the trajectory of her weightlifting career due to sitting<br />

on the plane beside Ray, who was to become her coach. He asked many<br />

searching questions of her during the flight, all related togoals, standards<br />

andreasons fornot aiming higher.<br />

From this arose lessons we can all learn from. Hayley realised since, that it<br />

seemed easier and safer to set the success ceiling low and touch it easily,<br />

rather than set it high and risk never touching it. Essentially, she said, she<br />

had limited herself by setting the ceiling low.<br />

2018 and 2019 broughtdevelopment, both in strength and belief gains,and<br />

SilverMedal in the Snatchatthe Pacific games,but missing her three Clean<br />

and Jerks. Nationals thatyear broughtawin, but Rayand Hayley reviewed<br />

and decided that getting to the Commonwealth Games was going to<br />

requiresomechanges.<br />

Here came the reminder quote from Albert Einstein, being ‘the definition<br />

of insanity isdoing the same thing over and over and expecting different<br />

results’.<br />

Courageously, Hayley made some huge changes professionally and<br />

personally and movedtoMtMaunganui forJanuary2020 to anew city, new<br />

lifestyle and in-personcoaching.Despite some wobbles,inMay 2021 Hayley<br />

had personal best numbers and in July 2021 broke her first New Zealand<br />

record. COVID also impactedhowever, on competitions with February<strong>2022</strong><br />

bringing one competition only for lifters to qualify for the Commonwealth<br />

Games.<br />

At 29, she beat her arch-rival for the first time in her career, broke the New<br />

Zealand Clean and Jerkrecordagain,and the New Zealand record total and<br />

qualified forthe Commonwealth Games with 98/125 and 1kg morethan her<br />

key competitor.She said ‘I did it.Wedid it.Itwas worthit’.<br />

Again, Hayley givesussome valuable advice, highlighting –‘so manytimes<br />

in thatprocess it would have beeneasier to stop,playitsafe, pretend Ihad<br />

givenitmyall’.<br />

Idobelievethatthe saying ‘everything youeverwantedisonthe other side of<br />

fear’,isabsolutely on the money.<br />

Again, at the Commonwealth Games,lifeofferedanother lesson. Hayley said<br />

she learned youactually have to go and get up on thatreally big stage!<br />

Her summary was that she ‘placed 5th at the Commonwealth Games with<br />

aperformancewell under my best. Iamnot satisfied,but Iamproud of my<br />

determination, bravery andstaying powerwhich nowstands me foreveras<br />

aCommonwealth Games athlete’.<br />

Publicly she has said she is still not done. Her internal drivetopush formore<br />

than whatisperceived is huge,with the 2026 Commonwealth Games and a<br />

medal being the goal.<br />

As sheconcluded, she observedthat, throughout theselast few years of her life<br />

acouple of thingshavesat with her and pushed her toward her purpose,being:<br />

• It’sonlywhen yourisk failurethatyou discoveryour fullest potential,and -<br />

• Bewho youwerecreated to be and youwill set the world on fire<br />

To students she recommended –‘As you navigate your life post-high school,<br />

Iurgeyou to choose the path thatreally lights youonfire, apaththattruly<br />

fulfils you. If youdonot know,thatisoktoo -take your time,have fun, give<br />

yourself permission to figure it out’.<br />

Hayley covered many options thatthe future could be,orwhatthe priorities<br />

could be, but over-riding all of it should always be about prioritising<br />

happiness and seeking growth, while also knowing it takes some hardwork.<br />

Hayley said that‘Istand here tonight and Iamapartner, daughter, sister,<br />

friend, business owner, Commonwealth Games athlete, and agirl proudly<br />

from the mighty Ash Vegas. Iget up every day and choose to follow my<br />

passion, Ichoose to work hard, to not settle and to be great.<br />

Isincerely look forward towhat greatness evolves as you all take the next<br />

step in your lives’.<br />

Driver licencecourse needs helpers<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> College is looking for<br />

volunteer drivers to sit alongside<br />

students working towards their<br />

restricted driver’s licence.<br />

The volunteers, who must hold a full<br />

licence, arebeingasked to give twohours<br />

aweektohelp seniorstudentsmove from<br />

beinglearner driverstorestricteddrivers,<br />

and principal Ross Preece says it will be<br />

life-changing formany.<br />

“There is acar supplied so the only thing<br />

we are asking for istime, because we<br />

knowthatbeing able to drivelegallyhelps<br />

our students get jobs and become good<br />

membersofour community.”<br />

The college has fundingfromthe Ministry<br />

for Social Development to pilot adriving<br />

programme thatwill be rolled out around<br />

New Zealand ifitissuccessful. All senior<br />

students who have held their learner<br />

licence for five months can apply todo<br />

the 12-week programme –they will be<br />

matched with amentor whowill drivewith<br />

them twiceaweek until theyare readyto<br />

sit their restrictedlicence.<br />

Salvation Army is delivering the course<br />

and instructor Heather Daly will ride<br />

alongonceamonth to monitor the young<br />

driver’s progress. She will undertake a<br />

mock test before the learner driver signs<br />

up forthe restrictedtest.<br />

Mr Preece said young people needed to<br />

practise driving after theyget their learner<br />

licence, but it was hard if there was no<br />

access to avehicle, if there was no fullylicenseddriver<br />

available to sit alongthem,<br />

orifhousehold funds could notstretch to<br />

coverthe cost of petrol for practicedrives,<br />

or the cost of the test itself.<br />

“Weare finding thatthe sixmentor drivers<br />

This week we also hope to hear some<br />

good news from Waka Kotahi about<br />

hoping retired folk or businesseskeenfor<br />

The car, whichisstoredatthe college,will<br />

be available from 7.30am until 7.30pm in<br />

the summer, and from 9am until 6pm in<br />

the winter.<br />

Mr Preece said the college washoping to<br />

start the new school year with adecent<br />

number of both learner drivers and<br />

mentor drivers.<br />

“Potentially we will have 260 students in<br />

Year 12 andtobeabletoequipthem with<br />

desperately needs morevolunteersso<br />

thatthe programme cankeepgoing<br />

next year.Ifit’ssuccessful, it will be<br />

rolled out aroundthe country.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> is agoodplacetotry it<br />

because we don’t have public transport<br />

and many jobs requireworkers to<br />

travel, eithertothe place of work or as<br />

part of the job itself. Helping students<br />

gettheir licencesmeans theyare much<br />

morelikely to land ajob andhelp<br />

contributetoour economy.<br />

job.<br />

“Mid Canterbury was chosen to pilot<br />

the programme as we have no public<br />

transport, soitiseven more important<br />

for our young people to be able to drive<br />

safely.”<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Mayor Neil Brown supports<br />

the driver programme and said having a<br />

driver’s licence was important and also<br />

helped remove abarrier to employment.<br />

“I remember learning to drive when I<br />

was ateenager and then teaching my<br />

ownchildren, and it is askill youneed to<br />

practise. Having your restricted licence is<br />

nowalso something thatmanyemployers<br />

look for.<br />

"There are nobarriers now to getting<br />

your licence as they have been removed,<br />

so Iencourage allstudentstotakeupthe<br />

offer.”<br />

People wanting to help students should<br />

Newproperties in<br />

updatedtsunamizones<br />

The <strong>Ashburton</strong> District Council<br />

has released updated tsunami<br />

evacuation zones after scientific<br />

modelling showed new areas that<br />

couldbefloodedinsome worst-case<br />

tsunami scenarios.<br />

The modelling was commissioned by<br />

Environment Canterburyand has already<br />

been completed for many other parts of<br />

Canterbury. In the<strong>Ashburton</strong>District, the<br />

changes arerelatively minor with around<br />

<strong>10</strong> newproperties included in the revised<br />

zones. Settlements such as the South<br />

Rakaia Huts, Lower Hakatere Huts and<br />

NorthRangitataHutswerealready located<br />

withinexisting tsunami evacuation zones.<br />

JaneDonaldson,StrategyandCompliance<br />

Group Manager, said most of the newly<br />

included area is rural land rather than<br />

homes, however the Council still<br />

encourages people who liveorspend time<br />

near the coast to familiarise themselves<br />

withtheupdatedevacuation zones.<br />

“Coastal residents should search for<br />

their address on our website and see if<br />

any of their property is within atsunami<br />

evacuation zone. These events arerare, so<br />

people don’tneedtobealarmed,however<br />

theyshould haveaplan forwhattodoif<br />

theyneedtoevacuate.”<br />

The <strong>Ashburton</strong> District has two tsunami<br />

evacuation zones: red and orange. The<br />

red zone ismost likely tobeaffected by<br />

atsunami and includes estuaries, river<br />

mouths,and beaches whereatsunami of<br />

any size could cause strong currents and<br />

surgesinthe water.<br />

The orange zone is less likely to be<br />

affected byatsunami than the red zone<br />

and includes areas ofland that could be<br />

floodedinalarge tsunami.<br />

Ms Donaldson said that people in the<br />

red and orange zones need toevacuate<br />

immediately if they feel along or strong<br />

earthquake, or receiveanofficial tsunami<br />

warning.<br />

“Our message hasn’t changed, if you feel<br />

an earthquake that islong or strong, get<br />

gone,” she said. “There may not be time<br />

foranofficial warning, so once the shaking<br />

stops, head immediately inland until<br />

you’re outside of the evacuation zones.”<br />

Helen Jack, Senior Scientist - Natural<br />

Hazards at Environment Canterbury,<br />

said the likelihood of atsunami being<br />

created close to <strong>Ashburton</strong>’s coast is<br />

small, and thebiggest tsunami threatsfor<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong> District are those created<br />

by large earthquakes on the Hikurangi<br />

or Kermadec subduction zones (to the<br />

east and north ofthe North Island), the<br />

Puysegur subductionzone(to the southof<br />

Fiordland),orbylarge earthquakesoffthe<br />

coasts of CentralorSouth America.<br />

“These tsunami evacuation zones<br />

represent an ‘envelope’ around many<br />

different possible worst-case tsunami<br />

scenarios,” says Ms Jack. “Most tsunamis<br />

will only affectthe beachand river mouth<br />

areas inthe red zone, but occasionally<br />

we may experience alarger tsunami that<br />

could inundate partsofthe orangezone.”<br />

Ms Donaldson said residents in the<br />

affectedareascanexpecttoreceivemore<br />

information in their mailbox shortly and<br />

tsunami evacuation signage at coastal<br />

locations willbeupdated.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Civil Defence Emergency<br />

Management will also work with coastal<br />

communities to update their local<br />

response plans as required.<br />

“Many of our coastal settlements already<br />

have good plans for warning and<br />

protecting theircommunitiesfromnatural<br />

disasters,”she said. “These can include<br />

phonetreesorlocal firesirens,soifyoulive<br />

Rural driving mentors wanted<br />

DANIEL.TOBIN<br />

@ashburtoncourier.co.nz<br />

It can be daunting moving to a<br />

new countryand culture,<br />

having the independence to<br />

drive acar on the road is one<br />

way of preventing isolation<br />

and encouraging self reliance.<br />

The Mid Canterbury rural<br />

driver licensingscheme was<br />

createdfive yearsago in a<br />

partnership between Rural<br />

Support Trust and Safer Mid<br />

Canterbury with the goal of<br />

preventingisolation of<br />

migrants in rural<br />

communities.<br />

Rural licensingco­ordinator<br />

WendyHewitt said often when<br />

families come over the<br />

husband worksonthe farm<br />

and the wife can get stuck at<br />

home, ‘‘so our main focusis<br />

migrant women in the rural<br />

communities because there is<br />

no one there to help them.’’<br />

The programme caters for<br />

migrants who don't have a<br />

licenceand are new to driving,<br />

or those who have adrivers<br />

licenceinanother countryand<br />

need to pass the New Zealand<br />

drivingtest.<br />

Wendy said the participants<br />

are put through aroad code<br />

course to learn the road rules,<br />

to get alearners licence.<br />

‘‘Then they are matched<br />

with avolunteer driving<br />

mentortodothe driving<br />

practice, teachthem to drive<br />

and also get them up to test<br />

standard.’’<br />

The participants also get<br />

four lessonswith a<br />

professional driving<br />

instructor,‘‘so the bonusiswe<br />

have over a90percent pass<br />

rate, whichisdown to our<br />

really good volunteers and<br />

giving them the four lessons<br />

covers off everything.’’<br />

The service is funded by<br />

variousnational and local<br />

WendyHewit is looking forvolunteer driving mentorsfor migrants.<br />

organisationsincluding,<br />

Advance <strong>Ashburton</strong>, Braided<br />

Rivers Trust, <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

District Council, Community<br />

Trust Mid/South Canterbury<br />

and the LionFoundation.<br />

Wendy said she has acore<br />

group of regular driving<br />

mentors including originals<br />

whowhere there at the start of<br />

the programme five years ago,<br />

but she is on the huntfor more<br />

volunteers.<br />

‘‘We are looking for<br />

volunteerdriving mentors, so<br />

they need to be over 25 with a<br />

full NZ licence that they have<br />

held for two years,orthey can<br />

have aconverted licence ­if<br />

they have held alicence in<br />

their country of origin for two<br />

years,’’ Wendy said.<br />

Ideally the volunteers take<br />

two lessons aweek, ‘‘but it is<br />

up to what the volunteers can<br />

fit in.’’<br />

The volunteer mentors<br />

undergo atraining session<br />

with the professional<br />

instructor when they start to<br />

bring them up to speed with<br />

the latest road rules.<br />

The student provides the<br />

car but the volunteers need<br />

those who create harm in our<br />

communities.<br />

will call on the resources of our district<br />

colleagues in Christchurch and Timaru to<br />

hold these people to account.<br />

‘‘To the members of the public who<br />

reported suspicious activity when they<br />

saw it, Thank you.<br />

“We rely on the public to help stamp out<br />

this offending in our community.<br />

‘‘When someone supplies information,<br />

it helps Police to form apicture of what’s<br />

happening in our communities.<br />

“You may feel the information you have<br />

is not significant, however, it could be the<br />

missing piece of the puzzle Police need to<br />

put offenders before the court.<br />

via <strong>10</strong>5 by phone on online, or<br />

alternatively information can be provided<br />

Pound banknote from a New Zealand<br />

trading bank dated 1932 or before.<br />

Denominations of five pounds and<br />

Collectors Need WarMedals<br />

urrently, throughout NZ and the world there is a big<br />

demand by collectors for war medals. These cover all<br />

wars right through from the New Zealand Land Wars and the<br />

Boer War, to the First and Second World Wars and the later<br />

Korea and Vietnam conflicts. New Zealand Servicemen and<br />

Women first served overseas in the Boer WarinSouth Africa<br />

around 1900 and the war medals awarded for this service are<br />

needed by the buyers,asareany other Medals from early New<br />

Zealand and the NewZealand Wars.<br />

General service medals from both the First and Second<br />

World Wars will also be purchased, but ascan be imagined<br />

these were awarded in fairly large numbers. “If a group<br />

of medals has any special award for bravery such as the<br />

Military Medal, Military or Flying Cross or other medals for<br />

Distinguished Conduct or Meritorious Service, these can add<br />

great value toagroup” stated Mr Tony Grant, buyer for John<br />

Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd. “Many families have old medals,<br />

somedating back to early Imperial days,that they arenot sure<br />

what to do with. These arebetter off in the handsofcollectors<br />

who will look after them. We will be happy tolook at any war<br />

medals whatsoever,just bring them in to venues”hesaid.<br />

Old Coins CanToss Up aRarity<br />

n lockdown when you sorted out your drawers and<br />

cupboards you may have come across some old<br />

coins. Youjust never know what rarities may be lurking<br />

there. The advice of Tony Grant from John Bertrand<br />

(Collectables) Ltd is to bring them in to the venues and<br />

have them appraised. “We want to see any old foreign<br />

coin accumulations. Weare quite happy togothrough<br />

your coins on the spot and give you an idea what wecan<br />

pay. You just never know what can turn up. Weare also<br />

particularly keen to buy pre 1946 New Zealand Silver<br />

Coins for at least <strong>10</strong> times their face value” he said.<br />

conscientious decision to not put<br />

Anthea said the variety ­and<br />

Its time to Light Up Geraldine<br />

Itstimetountangle those stringsofChristmas<br />

lights and dust off your decorations. LightUp<br />

Geraldine isback for <strong>2022</strong> and promises to<br />

add alittle sparkle tothe district during the<br />

festive season.<br />

Light Up Geraldine isthe brainchild of<br />

Ange Blair and Nicky Taylor, who, with the<br />

cancellation of so many events last year, were<br />

finding it hard to getintothe Christmas spirit.<br />

Ange says, It started after the Geraldine<br />

Christmas Paradewas cancelleddue to Covid.<br />

We were all so disappointed -especially our<br />

kids. Afterseeing arural SouthlandChristmas<br />

display competition, we decided to do something<br />

simple at our gates. Then, the next minute,<br />

others were joining in,and we realised wewere<br />

onto awinner.<br />

Thefriends saw an opportunity to make the<br />

townand country twinkle and decided to bring<br />

Light Up Geraldinetolife.Overwhelmedwith<br />

the support the initiative received last year,<br />

they say it was ano-brainer to bring it back<br />

for <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

Nicky says, Last year was beyond words;<br />

we couldn't believe how many got on board<br />

considering itwas pretty last minute and we<br />

didnt really knowwhat we were doing.<br />

In 2021there were entriesfromall over the<br />

district, with some displays going the extra<br />

mile and adding interactive experiences or<br />

photo opportunities. The duo were especially<br />

blown away by the Woodbury and Tripp<br />

Settlementcommunities. Angesays,Wewere<br />

pretty proud of their contributions. We are<br />

proudly rural ourselves, so to have the rural<br />

crew support us back by joining in was really<br />

special.<br />

Ange and Nicky say they are grateful for<br />

the support of their local sponsors, which<br />

enablesthem to offer prizes in various categories.<br />

Nicky says, We have lots of categories that<br />

cover both home and workplace, as well as<br />

town and country. We recognise that most<br />

rural displays are solar powered,whichadds<br />

anotherdimensionofdifficultytowork with.<br />

With entries now open, they are looking<br />

forward to evenmore people taking partthis<br />

year. Ange says, Its heart-warming tosee<br />

everyone donating their time and energy to<br />

spread Christmas joy. Wecant wait to see<br />

more homes and businesses get involved,and<br />

the community out and about during the<br />

evenings viewing thedisplays.<br />

Light Up Geraldine entries close on<br />

Hugh and Imanaged a24-hour getaway last week<br />

to take in the opening ofour cousins Lissy and Rudi<br />

Robinson-Coles Wharenui Harikoa exhibition at the<br />

Dowse Art Gallery inLower Hutt. The wharenui project<br />

is crocheted entirely out of neon wool, and includes<br />

pou designed in collaboration with many Kiwi and<br />

international yarn artists. Completion date is set for<br />

Matariki 2023. Its really worth atrip to visit it for reals.<br />

With Hugh focusing on other duties, we welcome<br />

another newreporteronboard: Anna Veaux (you will<br />

We wishthe organisersofthe various components<br />

every success. Like many organisations, last year<br />

Geraldine.nz made the tough call to cancel because<br />

of Covid. Seeing people out and about and doing<br />

things again is great.Aword of caution, though; some<br />

of our local friends have tested positive recently, so<br />

mask-wearing in confinedspaces is to be encouraged.<br />

On page 3, we read about Renee Whites project<br />

to help children identify and manage their feelings.<br />

According to an article in Mondays New Zealand<br />

Herald,titled Why we aresoangry andwhatitmeans<br />

for election year, David Fisher says that the events<br />

of recent years have left some ofusinemotional<br />

overload; New Zealand and the world have seen a<br />

rising tide of anger.MaybeRenee will expandtohelp<br />

big people deal with big emotions.<br />

Once the festival is over, itwont be long until<br />

Christmas. Well done to Ange Blair and Nicky Taylor<br />

for encouraging ustolight upour property for the<br />

Local business helping children<br />

navigate their emotions<br />

Two years ago, Geraldine local Renee White<br />

was anew mum looking for waystonavigate<br />

parenthood andraiseher son to be an emotionally<br />

intelligentand literateyoung man. Sherealised<br />

that she herself had never beentaughthow to<br />

cope with feelings of stress, sadness orgrief<br />

and wanted adifferent path for her son.<br />

Thats when Little People, Big Emotions<br />

was born. Reneebeganrunning asmallbusiness<br />

selling resources for parents, teachers and<br />

professionalstouse with children to helpteach<br />

them emotional intelligence. Renee says,<br />

I wanted to dosomething that would help<br />

support parents, help them connect andfoster<br />

agood relationship with their tamariki,<br />

something that would open the lines of<br />

communication where it was okay tohave<br />

feelingsand to identify,discuss andfind ways<br />

to copewith these.<br />

Shehas designed arangeofproducts,from<br />

posters and feelings cards to positive affirmation<br />

setsthat can be used to create apeacefulplace<br />

(calming corner) for children and adults to<br />

use in place of the traditional time out method.<br />

These productsfocus on the fivekey components<br />

of emotional intelligence and can be used to<br />

identify and namefeelings and provide calming<br />

coping strategies.<br />

Shesays, Itsabout, as asociety, reframing<br />

feelingsfrom good andbad,insteadidentifying<br />

whether they are low or high energy feelings<br />

and if they feel pleasant or unpleasant in our<br />

bodies. Thereare times we are all angry or feel<br />

like crying; these are not bad feelings; they<br />

just feel unpleasant in ourbodies. We need to<br />

be abletoidentify and work through them.<br />

Renee has seen the success of her products<br />

first-handinher son, Eli, whoregularlyengages<br />

with the resources in his own peaceful place.<br />

I seeour productsasalong-term investment<br />

because they will literally give backtoyou your<br />

entire childs life. Having the skills to name<br />

feelings and strategiestocope with them will<br />

hopefully ensure that tamarikiwont be resorting<br />

to drasticmeasures to cope with their emotions.<br />

She is currently studying with the Peaceful<br />

ParentsInstitute to become acertified peaceful<br />

parent coach and educator while raising her<br />

twochildren Eli (3) and Lyra(<strong>10</strong> months), and<br />

runningher businesswhichhas just celebrated<br />

itsfirstanniversary. Renee says,We launched<br />

through the CHOICE website for New Zealand<br />

small businesses ayear ago, and wehad<br />

70 orders inthe first weekend, which then<br />

averaged out to about seven aweek, and we<br />

thought, This is great.But then, just lastweek,<br />

we had over 170 orders from 15different<br />

countries; its incredible to see the growth.<br />

Using mainly social media to promote and<br />

share itsresources, LittlePeople, Big Emotions<br />

nowhas over30,000followers on TikTok,and<br />

Instagram combined. I am super grateful for<br />

thesupport we have received from all over the<br />

worldand the feedback we get fromthose using<br />

our products,says Renee. They are available<br />

in both English and Te Reo, and we have<br />

Spanish, German and French in the pipeline;<br />

every day we are getting more requests for<br />

different languages.<br />

Though there have been many challenges,<br />

such as the risingcostofshipping andjuggling<br />

being amother while running asuccessful<br />

business, Renee says she is overwhelmed by<br />

the success and by the support she has received.<br />

She says, One really special moment was being<br />

able to gift resources to Oranga Tamariki and<br />

Gumboot Friday organisations. People have<br />

seen ourresources and reached out to askhow<br />

they can donate these to children that need<br />

them the most. Knowingweare abletosupport<br />

theseorganisations that are helping our tamariki<br />

andtheirmental well-being is such aprivilege.<br />

There is no slowing down for Renee, who<br />

will complete her studies at the end of the year.<br />

I am looking at running parenting courses,<br />

continuing to create more resources, having<br />

ourproducts stocked in shops and opening a<br />

fulfilment centre in the USA to make our<br />

products accessible to evenmorechildren.The<br />

future islooking busy and bright, which is<br />

terrifying and exciting at the same time.<br />

Artists work inspired by<br />

New ealands dynamic geology<br />

Exhibition<br />

Ao-Terra is the title of thelatest exhibition<br />

at theMcAtamney Gallery. The title gives<br />

acluetoartist Andrew Craigs approach<br />

to landscape painting.The dynamic geology<br />

of our young country, New Zealand,<br />

inspires his paintings which focus on<br />

abstract geological forms.<br />

In an articleinthe 29 Septemberedition<br />

of Art Beat, hesays, The New Zealand<br />

landscape is particularly active where<br />

belligerent tectonic forces continually<br />

shape the land, as do the erosive effects<br />

of aboisterous climate. Consequently,<br />

the land is constantly rising and falling,<br />

particularly in areas where erosion strips<br />

away theland surface, exposing what lies<br />

beneath. It is this interface which interests<br />

me, not only because it tells of our countrys<br />

origins, but, in asense,weasindividuals<br />

are faced with similar contests -for<br />

example, the simultaneous effects of<br />

growth versus decay and restlessness<br />

versus contentment. Similarly, like the<br />

earth, we are subject toforces beyond<br />

ourcontrol. Andwhere theseare exposed,<br />

aterrible beauty oftenfinds expression.<br />

Originally from Taupo, now living in<br />

Christchurch, Andrew says that he has<br />

been interested in art for as long as he<br />

can remember. As ayoung man he was<br />

all set to attendart school, but marriage,<br />

mortgage, and family responsibilities<br />

precluded the required full-time<br />

commitment. He elected to complete an<br />

arthistory degreeinstead. He says on his<br />

website, The craftofpainting Ilearntat<br />

numerous workshops, many of which<br />

were based at the School of Fine Arts<br />

at Ilam. He followed that up with a<br />

postgraduatequalification in landscape<br />

architecture, which hesays pays<br />

the bills.<br />

He was encouraged to paint and to<br />

exhibit his paintings by Christchurch art<br />

patron Philip Carter, among others. His<br />

abstract landscapes are often composed<br />

of different geological features, sometimes<br />

inverted. There is no sky to escape to<br />

andnopeople to giveareference of scale.<br />

Andrew is amused when people claim to<br />

recognise the location of landscapes he<br />

produces, as almost invariably, they are<br />

abstract composites. Recently, people<br />

Tākeke (piper eggs) come ashore during Matiti<br />

Whiringa-ā-rangi<br />

Whiringa-ā-rangi -<strong>November</strong><br />

It is hardtobelieve that the marama (month)ofWhiringaā-rangi<br />

is upon us already. <strong>2022</strong> is zooming to a close<br />

at top speed, and we look ahead to the Christmas and<br />

New Year seasons with trepidation. According to the<br />

maramataka (lunar calendar) we are well into the<br />

second phase of summer; the weather is beginning to<br />

warm up, and as the season continues to change,<br />

pōhutukawa flowers across the country will start to<br />

bloom. In some areas, Māori use the colour and size of<br />

the pōhutukawa flower todetermine the readiness of<br />

kaimoana (seafood)for thecatch;when theyare bright<br />

red, the kina (sea urchin) are said to be the most<br />

succulent.<br />

The maramataka, as we have learned, was the<br />

primary method used by early Māori to determine how<br />

andwhentheyinteracted withthe natural environment.<br />

By taking their cues from the environment rather than<br />

sticking to a predetermined schedule, Māori were able<br />

to work in harmony with their food supplies, helping<br />

to maintain thewellbeing of food chains and ecosystems.<br />

In Whiringa-ā-rangi, one key sign they looked for was<br />

the arrivalof tākeke (piper)eggs onshorefor very short<br />

periods of time.<br />

It wasnt for collection that Māori took care to look<br />

forthe arrivalofthese tinyeggs; tākekeare an essential<br />

food supplyfor kahawai, which areasupplyfor kingfish,<br />

which are asupply formarlin, and so on. What seems<br />

to ustobeasmall,irrelevant changeinthe environment<br />

was, to early Māori, acritical sign that the ecosystem<br />

washealthy and replenishing itself.When thisoccurred,<br />

it also informed the people ofaspecific turning tide<br />

that happens in this phase of summer, assisting them<br />

in recognising the changing season too.<br />

The maramataka isextremely specific, just not in<br />

the way weinthe Western world think it should be.<br />

While it lacks specific dates and does not marry with<br />

the Gregorian calendar,itcan be used to trackthe most<br />

specificmovements and changes in the environment.<br />

GPS shines spotlight on melanoma<br />

Reminders about staying safe in the sun<br />

are on point as the UV Index rises with<br />

summers onset. Last week, Melanoma<br />

New Zealands (MNZ)Get Spotted<br />

campaign got behind Geraldine Primary<br />

Schools (GPS) SunSmart work with<br />

messaging, spot-themed clothing, and<br />

UV-detecting wristbands foreveryone.<br />

With the spotted clothing and spots<br />

stuckand daubedonto faces,the children<br />

shone aspotlight on molesand freckles,<br />

which can sometimes be cancerous. They<br />

also raised $906 for MNZ, asum that<br />

school parent and melanoma survivor<br />

Amanda Johnston has pledged to match.<br />

Amanda, also treasurer of MNZ, was<br />

instrumental in bringing Get Spotted to<br />

Geraldine primary. New Zealand has<br />

the worstrate of melanoma in the world.<br />

More people die from skin cancer than<br />

on our roads. However, skin cancer is<br />

unique in that there are active steps we<br />

IN BRIEF<br />

can take to prevent skin cancer, especially<br />

whenweare young: slip, slop, slap,seek,<br />

andslide.<br />

GPSprincipal,Andrew Leverton, says,<br />

The classes have been working on it<br />

across the week, and we talked about<br />

it at assembly. The message is:Everyone<br />

likes being out in the sun, but you should<br />

look after your skin.Its an age-appropriate<br />

campaign.<br />

Amanda explored the five S-words<br />

with the schools Year 6students: slip<br />

on along-sleeved non-transparent shirt,<br />

slop on SPF50+ sunscreen, slap on<br />

abrimmed hat, seek shade,and slide<br />

on sunglasses. She says, Protect your<br />

skin and get your skin checked. Skin<br />

cancer is related to how much UVradiation<br />

you absorb in your lifetime.<br />

Senior syndicate leader Fiona Wilcox<br />

says, With oncoming transitionstonew<br />

schools and with peer pressure, Year 6<br />

can be avulnerable year group. Were<br />

very aware, andwehaveapositiveculture<br />

of hat-wearing. But we know that it can<br />

become optional when they go to other<br />

schools. We want them to carry themessage<br />

through. Peer pressure is tough. If they<br />

think wearing ahat and sunscreen is<br />

cool, theyll do it. We want them to know<br />

its cool.<br />

Amandasays, A doctor oncereferred<br />

to my skin as aticking time bomb. This<br />

memoryhaunts me every timeIwalkinto<br />

the sun. Could Ihave done more when<br />

Iwas younger? Undoubtedly, yes. Iwant<br />

our young people to be informed, to live<br />

their best lives and to ultimately save<br />

lives from skin cancer.<br />

JACOB CUNNIFFE: RACER<br />

At our well-attended 25 October<br />

meeting, we were delighted to have<br />

local 15-year-old race car driver<br />

Jacob Cunniffe speak to us.<br />

Jacob is aGrass Kart, Speedway<br />

and Formula Firsts racer whose racing<br />

journey began when he was four years<br />

old. During his 11 years of racing, hehas<br />

won many titles, including Speedway<br />

Jacob is extremely passionate<br />

about his sport and thankful tohis<br />

family and sponsors (some ofwhom<br />

are Rotary members). One sponsor,<br />

Timaru Signs and Graphics, provides<br />

his car wrap for free. It was inspiring<br />

to hear ayoung man talk about his<br />

role models, share his journey and be<br />

grateful for the help he has received.<br />

Well done, Jacob.<br />

Jacob and his journey, follow him on<br />

On Saturday, 29October, we<br />

took seven local children ona<br />

Dream Day Out, aday planned<br />

by Rotary tointroduce them to<br />

experiences that might broaden<br />

their outlook and give them the<br />

courage to try new activities<br />

outside their comfort zone,<br />

now and in the future.<br />

The day began at Simon<br />

Pemberton’s airstrip with aflight<br />

around Geraldine and Temuka.<br />

Having seen their home from the air,<br />

the children disembarked with big<br />

smiles on their faces, chatting nonstop<br />

about their adventure.<br />

Geraldine Cheese Company was<br />

the next stop; cheesemaking and<br />

tasting with lots of questions, and<br />

more smiles when owner Paul<br />

Fitzsimons brought out the ice<br />

cream. Then across the road to<br />

Barker’s Foodstore and Eatery,<br />

where the children enjoyed trying<br />

out the different fruit syrups; cola<br />

was voted the best.<br />

Feeling refreshed, we piled in the<br />

van for adrive to Alistair and Debbie<br />

Millar’s farm Clandeboye. Debbie’s<br />

dog rounding up the sheep<br />

provided much entertainment<br />

before watching the machinations<br />

of combine harvesters, tractors,<br />

sprayers and adigger as apile of<br />

lime was tomaneuvered from one<br />

spot to another.<br />

Time for alate lunch at<br />

Mes Amis Café in Ōrari (with<br />

asession of mini golf) before<br />

heading out to Riding for the<br />

Disabled, where the children rode<br />

the horses. At first, there was an<br />

atmosphere of excitement mixed<br />

with hesitancy, but by the end of the<br />

session, all had big smiles and had<br />

made friends with the horses.<br />

At the end of the day, the happy<br />

(but maybe alittle tired) children<br />

each received abag of goodies.<br />

We thank our generous sponsors<br />

and helpers who made the<br />

Dream Day Out possible.<br />

Collectors Need WarMedals<br />

urrently, throughout NZ and the world there is a big<br />

demand by collectors for war medals. These cover all<br />

wars right through from the New Zealand Land Wars and the<br />

Boer War, to the First and Second World Wars and the later<br />

Korea and Vietnam conflicts. New Zealand Servicemen and<br />

Women first served overseas inthe Boer WarinSouth Africa<br />

around 1900 and the war medals awarded for this service are<br />

needed by thebuyers,asare any otherMedals from earlyNew<br />

Zealand and the NewZealand Wars.<br />

General service medals from both the First and Second<br />

World Wars will also be purchased, but as can be imagined<br />

these were awarded in fairly large numbers. “If a group<br />

of medals has any special award for bravery such as the<br />

Military Medal, Military orFlying Cross or other medals for<br />

Distinguished Conduct or Meritorious Service,these can add<br />

great value to agroup” stated MrTony Grant, buyer for John<br />

Bertrand (Collectables) Ltd. “Many families have old medals,<br />

some datingback to early Imperial days,thatthey arenot sure<br />

what to do with. These arebetter off in the hands of collectors<br />

who will look after them.Wewill be happy tolook at any war<br />

medals whatsoever,justbring them in to venues”hesaid.<br />

OldCoins CanToss Up aRarity<br />

n lockdown when you sorted out your drawers and<br />

cupboards you may have come across some old<br />

coins. Youjust never know what rarities may belurking<br />

there. The advice of Tony Grant from John Bertrand<br />

(Collectables) Ltd is to bring them in to the venues and<br />

have them appraised. “We want tosee any old foreign<br />

coin accumulations. Weare quite happy togothrough<br />

your coins on the spot and give you an idea what we can<br />

pay. You just never know what can turn up. We are also<br />

particularly keen to buy pre 1946 New Zealand Silver<br />

Coins for at least <strong>10</strong>times their face value” hesaid.<br />

Pavilion ownership transfers<br />

to Geraldine Croquet Club<br />

On Wednesday,26October, theGeraldine<br />

Croquet Club hosted representatives of<br />

the Geraldine Combined Hockey Club<br />

for aspecial occasion: the handing over<br />

of the key to the old hockey pavilion to<br />

its new owners, the croquet club.<br />

Speaking onbehalf of the club,<br />

Peter McAuliffe says, The Geraldine<br />

Croquet Club has been working with<br />

Geraldine Combined Hockey Club and<br />

is pleased to confirm that ownership of<br />

the pavilion has been transferred to<br />

Geraldine Croquet Club. The croquetclub<br />

appreciates the significanceofthe building,<br />

which opened on 22 October, 1923 as a<br />

memorial to theeight hockey club members<br />

who died in World War I.Amemorial<br />

plaque sitsabovethe door,intheir honour.<br />

Hockey club presidentMeg Catherwood,<br />

on passing over the key to croquet club<br />

president Sue Hutchins, says, We are<br />

thrilled to hand over the building to the<br />

croquet club, and we wish to thank them<br />

for the careand attention they havegiven<br />

the building over the last20years ... they<br />

have made many improvements to both<br />

the pavilion and surrounding area.<br />

Karen OKane, hockey club youth<br />

delegate, has been liaising with the croquet<br />

club and knows the pavilion is in safe<br />

hands. She says, The Geraldine Croquet<br />

Club realises the significance of the<br />

building,and we knowthey will preserve<br />

the heritage and history behind it. We<br />

discussed thesalewithour life members<br />

to reassure them that its history will be<br />

preserved. The time was right to let the<br />

croquet club continue with the pavilion<br />

as their own.<br />

Peter says, Next year willbethe <strong>10</strong>0th<br />

anniversary of the pavilion, so celebrations<br />

will be planned to mark this event. The<br />

hockey club is arranging to have ahistorical<br />

information board mounted outside the<br />

pavilion and looksforward to celebrating<br />

the anniversary with us.<br />

Croquet has been playedinand around<br />

Geraldine for over <strong>10</strong>0 years, and itis<br />

great we nowhave ourpermanenthome<br />

alongsideour groundsthat we canplay<br />

on all year round. This is great for the<br />

future of croquet in Geraldine.<br />

An extract from the book 150 years<br />

of Geraldine reads, The early fortunes<br />

of the Geraldine Croquet Club were in<br />

the hands of Mrs Hislop, the inaugural<br />

president in 1911. Some of the original<br />

members were Mesdames WA Sherratt,<br />

Donald MacDonald and JP Cliff.<br />

Two foundation members, Mr and Mrs<br />

WHKirk, gainedNew Zealand honours.<br />

By 1927 the membership had grown to<br />

40, and games were played against Temuka<br />

and Timaru clubs, though the club was<br />

affiliated to the Christchurch Croquet<br />

Association.<br />

One of the croquet clubs foundation<br />

members, 95-year-oldMarjory Matheson,<br />

attended the celebrationsand was excited<br />

to see it still going strong. She says,<br />

I played croquet for many, many years,<br />

and Iremember right back at the start<br />

using this wonderful pavilion. Ihave a<br />

lotofmemories, and Iloved everymoment<br />

of it. The club hasdone alot of hardwork<br />

keeping the pavilion and lawns looking<br />

lovely.<br />

The Geraldine Croquet Club always<br />

welcomes new members. If you want to<br />

trycroquet,turn up at the croquetlawns,<br />

just off Huffey Street on aWednesday<br />

You know youre heading into the best<br />

timeofthe yearwhen Peelcamp is open,<br />

says GeraldineDepartmentofConservation<br />

now. Peel Forest Campground is all go,<br />

and Chris recentlywelcomed Brian and<br />

Margaret Tannerasthe <strong>2022</strong>-2023seasons<br />

Having the Oamaru couple as summer<br />

hosts is part of anew approach to hosting.<br />

Chris says, Therellbethreesets of camp<br />

hosts doing two months each to cover<br />

the season.<br />

Hosts rolesincludewelcoming campers,<br />

being apoint of contact, checking that<br />

about local activities, and keeping an eye<br />

on camp maintenance needs.<br />

Brian, who has managed Peel Forest<br />

Campground as wellascommercial and<br />

other local conservation campsites with<br />

Margaret, says hes repeatedly drawn<br />

back to the camp. Its the walks, and the<br />

facilities, and the birds -the birdsong<br />

morning and night. Margaret says the<br />

grounds,shelteredbymature podocarps,<br />

are amajor drawcard, especially for<br />

families. She says, Theyresoopen, and<br />

thesites are so big.The children can ride<br />

their bikes.<br />

For many guests, amainattraction is<br />

the proximity of walks in Peel Forest<br />

Park Scenic Reserve, including to the<br />

1,311-metre Little Mount Peel summit.<br />

Chris says, A big thing is having the<br />

tracks at your doorstep.You walk out of<br />

Woodbury golf tournament<br />

fundraiser asuccess<br />

Thesun was shining,and the skies were<br />

clear for the Woodbury School Ambrose<br />

Golf Tournament Fundraiser held on<br />

Sunday,23October,atGeraldines Grand<br />

Vue golf courseand organised by Woodbury<br />

School Support Group.<br />

Due to unease around Covid restrictions<br />

earlier this year, the decision was made<br />

to hold off on the Woodbury HillCountry<br />

Challenge for <strong>2022</strong>, meaningthe support<br />

group werelooking for something to fill<br />

the gap.<br />

Year 2-3 teacherBronwyn Patrick put<br />

her hand up to take charge of the event,<br />

along with adedicated team of parents.<br />

WoodburySchoolPrincipal MikedeJoux<br />

says, Weare incredibly fortunatetohave<br />

acommitted staff membersuchasBronwyn<br />

to put an event like this together, spending<br />

alarge amount of her own time organising<br />

donations, arranging foodand alsolining<br />

up parentstohelp out on theday. As with<br />

all our events, we had alarge number of<br />

parents turnout to support the school,<br />

primarily inthe kitchen, making sure<br />

everyone waswell fed.<br />

Bronwyn says she was happywithhow<br />

the day ran. There was agreat turnout<br />

on the day with 14 teams of five players<br />

taking part. Teams included amix of<br />

school whānau, local golfers and those<br />

visiting for the day. It was great to see<br />

people getting in the spirit by dressing<br />

up and enjoying golf in thesun.<br />

Wewere overwhelmed by thesupport<br />

from both the school and the local<br />

community. In particular, Fresh Choice,<br />

who gave us their monthly community<br />

grant towards catering, Barkers of<br />

Geraldine, and Geraldine Butchery,who<br />

continually supports Woodbury School<br />

-inthisinstance, providing sausagesfor<br />

the barbecue and meat packs for prizes<br />

and raffles.<br />

Woodbury School students were also<br />

on hand to help with the running of the<br />

event; from decorating prize bags to<br />

helping on the barbecue topresenting<br />

prizes to winners at the end of the day.<br />

Mike calledthe day asuccess,saying, All<br />

money raised will go towards further<br />

equipment resources for the children,<br />

whichotherwise we wouldnot be able to<br />

provide. BECKY TALBOT<br />

Arts in the spotlight<br />

The arts hold aspecial place inmyheart. In my<br />

younger years, Idid some acting and television work;<br />

in fact, my first professional acting gig was with a<br />

touringchildrens theatrecompanywherewevisited<br />

schools in remotecommunities. Im afirm believer<br />

in the value of music and theatre toall.<br />

Readersmay be familiar with therecentcontroversy<br />

surroundingCreativeNew Zealandsdecision to cut<br />

funding to the annual Sheilah Winn Shakespeare<br />

Festival. While that move made headlines around<br />

the world, theres another funding stoush that Id<br />

like to address.<br />

Many local people will be familiar with Arts on<br />

Tour NewZealand (AoTNZ) and may be awarethat<br />

their funding arrangement with Creative New<br />

Zealand -aCrown entity-has changed, putting its<br />

future atrisk. Ive received messages from people<br />

in Geraldine and further afieldfor whom this change<br />

has come as ashock and massive disappointment.<br />

The Geraldine Community Arts Councilhas done<br />

afantastic job in bringing dozens ofAoTNZ acts<br />

here over the years, and Iknow this change has<br />

caused alot of upset. Ive askedthe prime ministers<br />

office to lookintothe situation surrounding Creative<br />

New Zealand and await areply.<br />

Of course, AoTNZ is not the only option available<br />

to small towns. Geraldine isblessed with agood<br />

number of talentedlocal peoplewho love to perform<br />

for their fellow community members. Whether it's<br />

musical performances or plays, Geraldine has put<br />

on some classicsoverthe years.Itsnot easyputting<br />

together ashoworevent in regional NewZealand,<br />

itsincredibly time-consuming, and the cost canbe<br />

prohibitive. Its different to big cities where people<br />

havesomanyoptions available to them, and event<br />

organisers have afar larger number ofpeople to<br />

appeal to.<br />

Ihopeasolution canbefound that allowsAoTNZ<br />

to continue with greater certainty and with the<br />

ability to bring acts toGeraldine for many years<br />

to come.

Winchester Rodeo rides again<br />

The skies were blue, and the dust was<br />

flying asalarge crowd cheered on the<br />

cowboysand cowgirlsatthe 51st Winchester<br />

Rodeo held on Saturday, 22October.<br />

After Covid-19 restrictions forced first<br />

the postponement and then the<br />

cancellation of the rodeo last year, the<br />

Winchester Rodeo Club has worked<br />

tirelessly to ensure this years event would<br />

go ahead.<br />

With 25 members from the local<br />

community, the club meets monthly,<br />

more frequently in the lead-up to the big<br />

day. Holding numerous working bees at<br />

the arena and grounds to get them in<br />

order, the club members areall volunteers<br />

who saythey do it for the love of the sport<br />

and to provide alocal event. The club is<br />

well supported by local businesses that<br />

make the day possible through their<br />

ongoing sponsorship.<br />

Media manager Gemma Oliver says,<br />

Theyre the real stars here, and we are<br />

incredibly grateful fortheir support. She<br />

says she was pleased with the turnout at<br />

Saturdays event, with high numbers of<br />

both competitors andspectators.There<br />

were327 competitorsin18events, which<br />

shows how the sport is growing across<br />

the country. In terms of the crowd, the<br />

banks were full early inthe day, with<br />

between 2,500-3,000people. Theweather<br />

was perfect, which always helps, but<br />

Ialsothinkpeople wereexcitedtobeable<br />

to attend the rodeo again.<br />

With competitors travelling from<br />

around the country to compete, the club<br />

wasexcited that someentrants, whohave<br />

recently been competing inthe USA<br />

and Canada, travelled back home to<br />

New Zealand to participate in the<br />

Winchester event.<br />

Gemma says she was particularly<br />

excited for the Winchester Club to hold<br />

their inaugural womens breakaway<br />

roping competition,aneventshowcasing<br />

the riders abilitytocatch acattle beast.<br />

The rope is attached to the saddle horn<br />

by athinpiece of cotton string designed<br />

to break away whenthe beast reaches the<br />

end of the rope, meaningthere is no actual<br />

stopping of the animal. The timer stops<br />

when the string breaks, and the fastest<br />

time wins.<br />

The event was won by Geraldine<br />

competitor and mother of three,<br />

Kate Haugh, of Woodbury, on her horse<br />

Cinch. She also placed second in the<br />

openbarrel raceatMethven Rodeo, held<br />

on Sunday, 23October. Husband Ben<br />

placed fourth in the rope-and-tie on both<br />

days, and second atWinchester in the<br />

mens team roping. Their daughters Bianca<br />

and Hannah also competed in events at<br />

both rodeos, making it ahectic and<br />

successful weekend for thislocal family.<br />

Winchester andMethven arethe first<br />

rodeos of the season. The next stop on<br />

the circuit is the Christmas run, with<br />

Millers Flat on Boxing Day, followed by<br />

Omarama, Te Anau,Waikouaiti, Wanaka<br />

and Canterbury in the same week. The<br />

next South Canterbury event is the<br />

Waimate Rodeo on 25 February, 2023.<br />

From Page 1<br />

PaulMcFall has been with Land<br />

Search and Rescue for 25 years, and<br />

worksclosely with local authorities to<br />

co­ordinate local searches and<br />

regional trainingevents.<br />

He cautions Cantabrians to be<br />

smartwhen venturing into their<br />

backyard, ‘‘Ifthey are going for awalk<br />

or tramp, tell someonewhere they<br />

aregoing, plan the walk or tramp,<br />

have adequate food and clothing and<br />

have two forms of communication.’’<br />

Paul is the LandSAR chairperson<br />

forthe Canterbury region,which<br />

ranges fromHanmer Springs to the<br />

Mackenzie valley.<br />

He recognisesthe challenges that<br />

Canterbury’s diverse landscapes<br />

pose to both outdoor enthusiasts and<br />

SARvolunteers, saying it takeshours<br />

to train volunteers ‘‘to ahigh<br />

standard to be able to search in all<br />

thevast landscapesinCanterbury...<br />

beaches, flat land, rugged terrain,<br />

suburban and alpine environments.’’<br />

He said he finds satisfaction in<br />

volunteering for his community, and<br />

that ‘‘it is enjoyable working with like<br />

mindedpeople throughoutthe<br />

country.’’<br />

LandSARvolunteers operate in<br />

urban, suburban, coastal,rural,<br />

mountain, and wilderness<br />

environments, and trainthroughout<br />

theyear to equipthemselveswith<br />

skills in everything from first aid to<br />

radio communications, stretcher<br />

management, rope work, and river<br />

crossings.<br />

Carl McOnie, CEOofLandSearch<br />

and Rescue New Zealand, said,<br />

‘‘Luckily for New Zealand, the<br />

LandSAR volunteers arehugely<br />

givingintheir time, money, efforts,<br />

equipmentand personal sacrifice.’’<br />

There is always aneedfor more<br />

volunteers, so anyonewho is keen to<br />

learn more about how they can get<br />

outdoors and helptheir communities<br />

should visit www.landsar.org.nz or<br />

get in touch with alocal base to<br />

attendone of their meetings.<br />

The land safety code offers five simple<br />

guidelines to help you stay safe if you<br />

plan on going into the outdoors.<br />

1. Choose the right trip for you.<br />

2. Understand the weather.<br />

3. Pack warm clothes and extra food.<br />

4. Share your plans and take ways to<br />

get help.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Dahlia Circle<br />

It was fantastic to seesomany<br />

people at the <strong>Ashburton</strong> Dahlia<br />

Circle's October meeting. Dahlias are<br />

growing in popularity and so, too, is<br />

our circle. We are very fortunate to<br />

have knowledgeable dahlia growers<br />

like Joyce to assistnovice growers.<br />

Joyce has 40+ yearsofexperience in<br />

growing dahlias,and her willingness<br />

to share her tipsand adviceis<br />

priceless for those new to growing<br />

these special plants. The October<br />

meeting was jam packed with<br />

information for keen dahlia growers.<br />

Joyce began by talking to members<br />

about gall and what to look for and<br />

how to deal with it.<br />

Those present for the workshop<br />

received ahandout to take home as<br />

aquickguide. Joyce discussed how<br />

she takes cuttings and pots them up,<br />

and also brought along some of last<br />

year's cuttings to show in her<br />

demonstration,<br />

which had formed magnificent<br />

tubers since being potted up. This<br />

was followed up by tips on how to<br />

plant and tendtonewly planted<br />

tubers.<br />

Later, Joyce had afun dahlia game<br />

where all members participated and<br />

went homewith showdahlias to<br />

grow. Everyone was most<br />

appreciative of Joyce'sknowledge<br />

and generosity.<br />

Ahuge thank you to you, Joyce, for<br />

being so generous with yourtime and<br />

knowledge. The <strong>Ashburton</strong>Dahlia<br />

Circleislucky to have you.<br />

Labour Weekend saw the Circle's<br />

annual tuber sale fundraiser take<br />

place, which was aroaring success.<br />

We would like to thank everyone who<br />

donated tubers for the sale, and to all<br />

who came along on theday and<br />

supported ourCirclebypurchasing<br />

tubers from us. We hope you'll come<br />

along again for nextyear's sale.Our<br />

next meeting is our annualChristmas<br />

Dinner and Rose Show.<br />

Thisis alwaysahighlight of the<br />

Dahlia Circle calendar and a<br />

wonderful evening thatwe'reall<br />

looking forward to. The RoseShow is<br />

afun event that keeps us motivated<br />

untilthe dahlias start to bloom andwe<br />

When its already so hot outside,<br />

adding extra heat isn’t always agreat<br />

idea. Airdrying where possible and<br />

trying to keep hot tool styling to a<br />

minimum. Summer is aperfect time<br />

to start embracing natural texture,<br />

using salon professional products to<br />

help youachievethis.<br />

Sun protectant<br />

We buy SPF products for our skin,<br />

why would we not add some sort of<br />

barrier to protect our hair? While sun<br />

damage is morelikely forpeople with<br />

fine and or lighter hair –everyone is<br />

prone to sun damaged hair and the<br />

best waytohelp protectand prevent<br />

is to add abarrier between our hair<br />

and NZ’sdamaging sun.<br />

The best way is a direct barrier; a<br />

hat, bandana or scarf. There are also<br />

arange of SPF products specifically<br />

designed forhair.<br />

We love and recommend our Keune<br />

Sun Shield range.Try to avoid the sun<br />

when we reach the hottest partofthe<br />

day. Youdon’t completely avoid the<br />

sun keeping your hair away from the<br />

sun when its at its most harmful can<br />

help minimise damage.<br />

Keep it loose<br />

As much as ‘beachy waves’ are a<br />

summer staple look it is also super<br />

helpful in caring for your hair and<br />

preventing damage in the heat.<br />

In thesun, hair gets dryand damaged<br />

and over time if not cared forcorrectly<br />

ends in breakage.<br />

Keeping hair in looser styles takes<br />

some of the strain off especially at the<br />

tension pointwhereyour hair tie sits.<br />

‘‘<br />

Summer is spenthaving<br />

fun, living outdoors and<br />

while formostofusit’s<br />

the favouriteseason,<br />

summer activities can<br />

wreak havoconyour hair.<br />

’’<br />

When swimming<br />

Wearing a cap is not everyone’s<br />

cup of tea, so before you head out<br />

swimming give your hair aquick rinse<br />

with cold water and aconditioner.The<br />

cold water closes off your hair cuticle<br />

keeping absorption to a minimum<br />

and conditioner acts as a barrier<br />

against potentially damaging water.<br />

Make sure you give it a rinse or<br />

light flat handed wash afterwards.<br />

Make sure you have asoft piece of<br />

clothing or microfibre towel to dry<br />

hair off afterwards instead of abeach<br />

towel, apply aleave-in conditioner/<br />

treatment and use atangle teaser or<br />

wide tooth comb to brush after itis<br />

towel dried.<br />

Don’t rip hair ties out and get stuck<br />

into anytangles createdbythe water<br />

-hair is in its most fragile state when<br />

its wet sobrushing and ripping hair<br />

ties out stretches the hair causing it<br />

to be incredibly weak and sometimes<br />

immediate breakage.<br />

Add in a moisturising treatment<br />

to your night time regime after a<br />

day’s swimming to replenish some<br />

moisturethatmay have been lost.<br />

Shampooing<br />

As tempting as it is to wash probably<br />

more often than usual, try to do the<br />

opposite. Hair has many natural oils<br />

thathair desperately needs especially<br />

in the summer. Every time you<br />

shampoo, you are stripping your hair<br />

of these natural oils.<br />

Extend days between shampooing by<br />

using adry shampoo and conditioner<br />

to absorb any excess oils. Ifyou find<br />

even this impossible, switch to a<br />

mild/ daily shampoo which is gentler<br />

on hair and scalp and scrub (gently)<br />

just the scalp and let the suds rinse<br />

through the rest. This keeps dryness<br />

to aminimum.<br />

Land use change likely in 2040s<br />

Water use consent, and dairy shed<br />

renewalsdue inthe early­2040s may be a<br />

catalyst forland usechange in Mid<br />

Canterbury, according to Our Land and<br />

Water researchers.<br />

Our Land and Water (Toitū te Whenua,<br />

Toiora te Wai)isone of 11 National<br />

Science Challenges focusedondefined<br />

issues of national importance identified<br />

by the NewZealandpublic.<br />

Areport,recently released by<br />

researchers and led by <strong>Ashburton</strong> District<br />

Council agriculture portfolio advisor<br />

Richard Fitzgerald,foundaround 40<br />

percent of all dairymilking sheds in the<br />

district were built between 2007 and 2015,<br />

according to resourceconsents.<br />

Based on life projections for adairy<br />

shed, 230 sheds will reach the end of their<br />

economic life between 2040 and 2048 ­<br />

meaning nearlyhalf of all dairy sheds are<br />

likely to need replacing.<br />

Researchers foundfarmersmakingsuch<br />

decisions would look at climate suitability,<br />

regulations and the prevailing economics<br />

of dairying compared to other land uses.<br />

They also found between 2030 and 2040,<br />

78 percent of allwater use consents in the<br />

district would expire. However thearea of<br />

landinvolved in this process will be even<br />

greateras water consents for all three<br />

irrigation companies in the districtalso<br />

fall due in this period.<br />

Mr Fitzgeraldisafarmerwith anactive<br />

involvementinanintensive irrigatedMid<br />

Canterbury­basedfamily farm, and has<br />

experience as an agribusiness executive<br />

and consultant.<br />

Part of this researchincluded running<br />

farmerfocus groups and examining data<br />

from the <strong>Ashburton</strong>District Council and<br />

Environment Canterbury to analysethe<br />

economic life of key assetssuch as dairy<br />

sheds andirrigation consents.<br />

Most were unfazed.<br />

One farmer saidthey would follow<br />

profits and go where the market led, and<br />

anothertalkedabout planning<br />

investments to cope with extreme events.<br />

Overthe past 20 years, irrigation has<br />

transformed <strong>Ashburton</strong>District from its<br />

traditional use as sheep and grain growing<br />

region.<br />

Irrigated farming now covers about65<br />

percent or 220,000 hectares of the<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> District plains.<br />

Dairy farming now accounts for $1,129<br />

millionof thelocal economyand 63<br />

percent of net farm incomefor the district.<br />

‘‘The renewal process is significant<br />

becausethe implementation of the<br />

National Policy Statement for Fresh<br />

Water Management (2020) mayintroduce<br />

new ordifferentconsentconditions for<br />

water use. This could change theviability<br />

or feasibilityofsomelanduses under<br />

those new conditions, especially if the<br />

fortunes of dairyfarmingdo not compare<br />

as favourably as other land use options,’’<br />

researchers said.<br />

Mid Canterburydairy farmer Nick<br />

Richard Fitzgerald<br />

Giera,ofRuapuna,said owner­operators<br />

and familyfarmsmaking decisions will<br />

mean looking at investment returns, but<br />

also their own personalcircumstances.<br />

‘‘Makingany decision to changewill<br />

involvelookingat return on investment,<br />

but they’llalso considertheir own<br />

personal stage of their farming career,<br />

succession plans, andassetvalue<br />

considerations of alternativeland uses.<br />

‘‘At the momentthere are not many land<br />

uses(with the requiredsupporting<br />

infrastructure) that compete with dairy on<br />

areturn­on­investmentbasis, but that may<br />

changeinthe future,’’ he said.<br />

Another key finding of the research is<br />

that meaningful climate information at a<br />

granular 5km x5km resolution would give<br />

farmers confidence to make changesto<br />

improve farm circumstances.<br />

Future water use consent and dairy shed<br />

renewals may be acatalyst for land use<br />

changes in Mid Canterbury.<br />

‘‘Myguess is that mostfarmers will wait<br />

untilthere are reliable trends and<br />

patternsoflong­term changes to climate<br />

before making significant changes to their<br />

business.<br />

‘‘This means farmers are likely to have<br />

other factors thatdrive change firstsuch<br />

as returns and asset replacement<br />

decisions,’’ Mr Giera said.<br />

‘‘Climate data is notoriously inaccurate<br />

andmodelsthat predict future changes in<br />

climate have along way to go to givefarmers<br />

anyconfidence in investingbasedonfuture<br />

predictions. Soil type andlocalisedclimate<br />

arebig driversofwhat is possible andthat's<br />

where we need data,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘Farmers are alogical bunchwho are<br />

keen to understandthe changing climate at a<br />

granular, locallevelastheir whole business<br />

model is based on climate,’’researchers<br />

said.<br />

‘‘It makes goodbusiness sense to<br />

understand whatiscoming so they can<br />

future­prooftheirbusiness.’’<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> DistrictCouncil chief executive<br />

Hamish Riachsaidworkingtogether,<br />

supportedbyindustry and thescientific<br />

community, farmerscan understand what<br />

theclimate future will looklike andwhat to<br />

do about it.<br />

‘‘If we givefarmersresearchthey cantake<br />

home anduse straightaway, rather than<br />

high­leveltheory, then they will minimise<br />

riskand utilise the opportunitiesemerging<br />

throughachangingclimate.’’<br />

Former Ecan chair reflects on service<br />

Outgoing Environment<br />

Canterbury chairwoman<br />

Jenny Hughey, who chose<br />

nottorestand for council,<br />

reflects on atermof<br />

achievements in herfinal<br />

column.<br />

‘‘Three years ago, Ihad the<br />

honour and privilege of being<br />

sworn in as Chair of<br />

Canterbury’s regional council<br />

—our first fully elected council<br />

in just under adecade.<br />

The electoral cycle means<br />

there is now a‘changing of the<br />

guard’, with the final votes of<br />

the latest election now<br />

confirmed.<br />

Idecided not to stand for reelection<br />

as Ibelieveit’s the right<br />

time for some new energy<br />

around the table.<br />

In stepping aside, Ihave<br />

found myself reflecting on the<br />

council’s time together and all<br />

that we’ve achieved.<br />

To those councillors who’ve<br />

also chosen not to return,I<br />

sincerely thank you for your<br />

contribution and wish you well<br />

wherever your journey takes<br />

you. It’s fair to say our term was<br />

punctuated by disruption —<br />

from flooding events to covid<br />

lockdowns.<br />

The pandemic meant we were<br />

unabletoget out and about as<br />

much as we would have liked. It<br />

forcedusall to look at new ways<br />

of working.<br />

Throughoutthis upheaval,<br />

our council was determined to<br />

maintain aconnection with the<br />

community and bring people<br />

into the democratic process. In<br />

this, we succeeded.<br />

For instance, the number of<br />

submissionsreceivedfor our<br />

most recentAnnualPlan was<br />

remarkable (2800),and it was<br />

empoweringtohave so many<br />

voicesinfluence our decisions.<br />

In fact, one of the most<br />

rewardingaspects of my time in<br />

council has been hearingfrom<br />

you —the public.<br />

We saw more peoplethan<br />

ever attendcouncilmeetings<br />

and speak at our citizens’<br />

forums, sharingideasand<br />

providing asounding board.<br />

These conversations shaped<br />

our work and helped us<br />

understandthe impacts of our<br />

activities on communities. This<br />

has gone along way towards<br />

restoring democracy at the<br />

Jenny Hughey<br />

regional council.<br />

This typeofparticipation is<br />

vital to ahealthy democracy,<br />

and Ithank everyone of you<br />

who took the timetotell us what<br />

you think.<br />

While there weremany<br />

achievementsthat I’m fiercely<br />

proud of, afew in particular<br />

stand out:The passing of the<br />

Canterbury Regional Council<br />

(NgāiTahu Representation) Act<br />

—tobeinparliament as the Bill<br />

passed was simply magic<br />

Establishingpublic­facing<br />

committees<br />

The launch of It’s Time,<br />

Canterbury, aregion­wide<br />

campaign to raise awarenessof<br />

climate change issues and<br />

challenges<br />

Making public transport<br />

cheaperand more accessible,<br />

withthe scene set for next year’s<br />

trial of $2 flat fares<br />

Launching the Waitaha<br />

Action to ImpactFund to help<br />

communitygroups deliver great<br />

projectsonthe ground.<br />

I'd also like to congratulate<br />

our staff, including our chief<br />

executive and her predecessor,<br />

for their commitmentto<br />

implementingthe Living Wage.<br />

We recently applied to be an<br />

accredited LivingWage<br />

employer. If successful, we’llbe<br />

the first regional council to gain<br />

this recognition.<br />

I'm passionate about how<br />

wage levels can affect people’s<br />

ability to access basic rights<br />

such as housing and actively<br />

participate in society.<br />

Beingacouncillor is not about<br />

sitting in an office and imposing<br />

rulesonpeople. It’s about<br />

working with communities to<br />

hear as many views as possible,<br />

makingdecisions and finding a<br />

way forward.<br />

Ibelieve the incoming group<br />

is set up well to take our work<br />

further, and Iwish them<br />

tremendous success for the<br />

term ahead. And finally, Iwould<br />

like to thank you,the<br />

community, for getting involved<br />

and being interested in your<br />

region. This is how democracy<br />

shouldfunction.<br />
