Talkingtochildren helps raise

the level of oral language

across our young children,

Hakatere Kāhui Akolead

principal Cath Blacklow says.

It has been thefocus of anew

Kāhui Ako­wide campaign to

lift whānau awareness around

the importance of talking to

children.

“Teachers have noticeda

definite declineinlanguage

ability and acquisition over

the last few yearsand the

Kahui Ako are committed to

growing awareness and

improving this for ourakonga

over thecomingyears,” she

said.

Posters are going up in

public places such as the

library, recreationsites and

churches.

It is just oneofthe initiatives

coming out of theHakatere

Kāhui Ako learning

community which is made up

of 10 primary schools,

Ashburton Intermediate,

Ashburton College and 15

early childhoodeducation

centres (ECE).

Itwas formedin2015 and is

led by asteeringgroupof12

school principals and early

childhoodleaders involved

with the Kāhui who work

together to help students

achieve their full

potential.

MrsBlacklow, of St Joseph’s

School, tookupthe lead role in

July last year.

Shesaid theKāhui Ako had

three main achievement

challenges ­developing

culturally responsive teaching

practice; the huaora

/wellbeing of staff, akonga and

whānau; and coherency

between the 12 kura and15

ECE in the group.

“We have highly skilled and

caringteachers,and

enthusiastic andcompetent

leaders that we as a

community can be proud of,”

she said.

There have been

professional

development opportunities,

practicalworkshop

programmes and social

connections.

Professional learninggroups

have beenwell­attendedbya

cross sectionofteachers from

ECE throughtosecondary,she

said.

“This is the magic of the

Kāhui Ako ­whenteachers

cometogether they learn and

growintheir practice from

talking andsharing with one

another.

“Therehavebeen some great

initiatives followed up from

these professionallearning

groups.”

Homeland art

Henry Lowen­Smith with some of his exhibited work.

The Ashburton Art Gallery is

presenting an exhibition on the

art of Henry(Harry) Lowen­

Smith.

The Wind of the Homeland is a

collection of undisturbed

landscapes inspired by scenery

found across New Zealand.

Henry, born in Wakanui in

1932, has been painting for over

60 years. He is colourblind and

cannot easily distinguish reds

andgreens, which makes his

vivid but realistic native

bushscapes and grassland

paintingsall the more

impressive.

At 14 he was offered free entry

to the Canterbury School of Fine

Arts, ‘‘which Ideclined,’’ he said.

‘‘I wantedtogoforwardand find

my own styleofpainting’’.

Self­taught, he explored

techniques around

contemporary realism, usingoil

as hispreferred medium.

At the AshburtonSocietyof

Art’s veryfirst exhibition58 years

ago he sold two paintings, and

realising peopleloved his artas

much as he didinspired him to

pursuehis passions.

His latestexhibition presents

aretrospective collection of his

worksspanning over 44 years,

between 1966 to 2010.

‘‘I enjoy local landscapes and

then went on to paint New

Zealandwide,’’ he said,

describing how he wasfortunate

to have aflexible working

environment in his younger

years which allowed him to

continuepaintingwhileworking

asabuilder.

To gather inspiration forhis

workand to expand his

knowledge of NewZealand

scenery,heandhis wife, Sylvia,

would travel up to 3000 miles

(about4820kilometres)per year.

‘‘There wouldn’t be abackroad

we haven’t been on,’’ Henry said.

His collection presents a

seriesoftranquil landscapes and

cityscapes that easily capture

NewZealand’s rugged beauty

and diverseenvironments.

Henry haswon severalawards,

both national and international,

and hashad buyers from around

theworld using hiswork forboth

End of School Year Looming

Another school year is nearing the end. The

senior students have finished classes and NCEA

exams arecurrently taking place.

As theschoolcommunityworks hardtofinishthe

year strongly, we arealso busy planning for2023.

Part of this planning involves Teacher Only

‘ACCORD’ Days on 21 and 22 November. The

ACCORD days are for schools around New

Zealand toplan ahead on how toimplement the changes that have

come from the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA)

Review of Achievement Standards.This is alarge and complex piece of

work that we hopewill strengthen New Zealand’s education system and

qualifications framework forour rangatahigoingforward.

Exam Time CanBeStressful

As mentioned, NCEA exams have recently started. Exams can be a

stressful time of year forstudents and fortheir widerhouseholds! It is at

timeslike these thatstudents can develop and demonstratetheir grit.

A2014 study in theUSfound that grit is abetter predictorofsuccess than

intellectual talent.Gritismade up of fivecomponents:

• Courage – the abilitytotriumph over fear

• Conscientiousness – the desiretodoatask well

• Perseverance – keeping goingthroughstruggle

• Resilience – abilitytobounceback from adversity

• Passion – feelingenthusiastic or excitedfor

something, or about doing something

In the words ofone of the authors, Angela Duckworth, ‘Grit issticking

with your future, day in, day out; not just for the week, not just for the

month, but for years; and working really hard tomake that future a

reality’.

Exams areanexcellentopportunitytogrowand develop thatgrit.

NetSafePresentation

Last week we were fortunate to have Paula Wistrand from NetSafe

presenttoour staff andofferawebinar to our parentcommunity.NetSafe

is the organisation in New Zealandthatprovides onlinesafetyadviceand

reporting.Their work is aligned to the Harmful Digital Communications

Act2015.

Paula's presentations were highly informative and provided food for

thought. Some of the statistics provided sobering reading. These include

insights into our current reality such as 73% ofteenagers across the

countrylearningabout sexfrompornography, and26% of young people

under21years of age havingexperienced bullying or harassmentonline.

Twoofthe keytakeawaysfor me were:

• Separate the behaviour from the technology,and focus on education–

manyofthe behaviours displayedare not neworspecific to onlineor

the 21st Century. Technology does,however,pose unique challenges.

Education is critical to get young people thinking about what is

appropriate and why, when interacting online, so that the values we

expect ofpeople in the real world are also demonstrated inonline

environments.

• Positive role modelling by adults is important –it is no secret that

public groups and comment functions on social media platforms are

oftenhotbeds of toxicity, negativity and misinformation. This content

is oftengeneratedbythe adultsthat our teenagerslook up to.Young

people noticeand take their cues from whatthey see.

Whāia te itikahurangi, ki te tuohokoe,hemaunga teitei

Phoenix Chorus and National Anthem

The Phoenix Chorus, with Angie Cresswell as

Musical Director and Conductor, and Stephen

Diedricks accompanying, again provided the

Processional,aperformance, and the Recessional

as they did forthe Year 13 Graduation Ceremony.

The National Anthem for this evening was very

ably led by Tamsin Cartney and Maria Lawn

(pictured right, leftand right).

Welcome by MC,DeputyPrincipal Hannibal Ikahihifo

Hannibal opened the evening saying –

Engā mana, Engā reo, Engā karangatanga

maha

Tena koutou,tena koutou,tena tatoukatoa

Ngā mihi ahau ki tēnei whenua me ōna uri ka

mihi au ki Kati Huirapa

Etūana ahau hei māngai mō tēnei kura

Kei konei ahau ki te mihi atukiakoutou

Eharikoa ana ahau ki te pōwhiriiakoutou

Ko te tūmanakonei, kiapai te wā ki konei

He puawaitanga harakeke, he rito whakakī

whārarua

Nō reira, nāia tākumihi atukiakoutou

Following the singing of the National Anthem, Hannibal spoke saying Malo

e lelei, Kia orana koutou katoatoa, and giving a very warm welcome to

students,staff, parents,caregivers,whānau and invited guests.

He emphasised that, on this evening, wecome together to celebrate the

commitment, perseverance,achievements and successes made by our Year

11 and 12 students this year.

Additionally,henoted that, being new to the school and community, he felt

fortunate to be in the position to be apart ofthis celebration of rangatahi

achievements.

Principal’s Address

Principal Ross Preece addressed the students,

similarly to those at the Year 13 Graduation

Ceremony aweek prior, welcoming all to the

celebration of achievementsofthe Year 11 and

12 students,plus providing an opportunityfor

parents and caregivers to celebrate.

Ross referenced the challenges for

students over the past three years of COVID

interruptions,online learning,illness or thatof

family members, and having teachers absent

forthe same reasons.

Thelack of assemblies and large-scale sporting and cultural events have all

impacted, lessening some ofthe enduring memories which students take

forwardwith them.

However, the COVID pandemic was unique in that itprovided the entire

world with aunique shared experience, at the same time; suggested as

unique in mankind’s historyinthat, globally,every nation has faced asimilar

set of challenges. Ross suggested, inthat regard, we can perhaps view

ourselves as historymakers.

Ross referred to the skills and dispositions needed to be successful in the

future and in employment, including flexibility and adaptability, creativity

and co-operation, and the ability toaccess and work with digital tools. He

noted that the experiences of the last three years will stand them in good

stead, asteachers and students have had to become creative problemsolvers.

The work ofteachers was acknowledged, including the flexibility they

have shown in supporting students, and managing classroom and online

teaching; as was the support ofBoard Members with their oversight,

wisdom and governance.

Students were reminded thatapplying the AshColl WayValues,and striving

to AchieveQuality, ShowPride inwhatthey do,how they appear,and being

Respectful to others,will always stand them in good stead fortheir futures.

Students returning in 2023 were challenged to make the most of the

opportunities at College and, for those leaving for employment, Ross

recommended they look for anoption which extends them and brings a

sense of fulfilment. He said afifty year working lifeistoo long to be doing

something they don’t enjoyorwhich doesn’t bring satisfaction. However, he

reminded students that they are‘in charge of their own destiny, so look to

have afuturethatfeeds their soul’.

Ross concluded by congratulating students about to be on stage to

be acknowledged and receive awards, saying that the most pleasing

developmentsare personal growth and maturity.

Guest Speaker –Jonathan Pow

It wasour very real pleasuretowelcome

Jonathan Pow asour guest speaker for

this evening.

Jonathan is a former Ashburton

College student who, post-College,

studied at the UniversityofCanterbury,

Christchurch, from 2001-2006,

graduating with a Bachelor of Laws

(Honours) and aBachelor of Arts.

Jonathan was employed with Wynn

Williams, Christchurch, initially as a

Solicitor and then appointed to the

position of Associate in June 2014. In

May 2018 he and his family made the

decision to return tolive and work in

Ashburton, where hehas been with Tavendale and Partners for 4½years,

initially as aSeniorAssociate and,inApril of this year,asaPartner of the firm.

Jonathan focused on the night being all about the students and their

achievements. Heencouraged them to absorb the evening because being

celebratedfor their accomplishments is awonderful,but all tooinfrequent,

occasion.

Jonathan backgrounded hisschooling in Ashburton, noting he had a‘really

good time’atCollege, was Green House Executive Vice-Captain, and then

left for university studying law and sociology. Overseas travel followed

beforereturning to work as acommercial lawyer in Christchurch.

Akey message here was developing as anew lawyer, keeping at it, and

getting to know (most of the time he said) whathewas doing.

On the topic of leaving school, Jonathan suggested tostudents that postsecondaryschool

they cantake the path well trod (out of school,totertiary,

training or employment) or do something entirely different. In his view, he

said, there isalso no need to rush into avocation, work or university. What

he suggested was important was to make sure‘your path is yours, not just

what you think mightbeexpectedofyou,orwhat everyone else mightbe

doing, and it doesn’t have to be immediately career-driven’. Henoted that

it’s abig call at 17 or 18 years old to be determining the rest of your life.

Another point ofconsideration was his relocation back to Ashburton, with

his family, saying he was ‘really enjoying’ being back in Ashburton but

probably had never thought hewould be saying that, or living back here,

until an opportunityarose.

Jonathan asked‘WhatisLearning, whatdid he wish he’d heard when he

wasinYear 11 and 12.

Some keypoints were –

• Going into the last year or two years of schooling, istoknow and

understandwhy you’re here.

• The pointofschool being to effectively transfer howand whatyou learn

in school to other situations and to life.

• Rote learning, or memorising information, without meaningfully

understanding it,isn’t the goal.

• Just completing typical school tasks quickly, but without meaningful

understanding,isnot fun or rewarding at all and not whyyou’reatschool.

• Understand that you’re there totrain your brain, to develop focus, to

acquire a problem-solving mindset, to improve how you formulate,

communicate and express ideas, and to surprise your teachers.

• Haveaninquiring mind,and you’ll be abletoapply those skills in whatever

youend up doing next,and you’ll find that wherever yougoorwhatever

youdofromherewillbesomuch morestimulating and rewarding forit.

• The beauty ofthis is that you don’t have to be ‘academic’ toadopt

this mindset, you just have to be motivated and willing to try tosolve

problems.

• Don’t think of it as‘going to school’; think of school as the placewhereyou

have the opportunityto‘constantly learnand create’.

• Itinvolves hard work and attention sure, but constantly learning and

creating can be fun, and so rewarding.

BeingYoung andTaking Opportunitieswas Another Topic

Jonathanreminded students they have everythingahead of them, and have

so much opportunity. He referenced Sir Ian Taylor, founder of Animation

Research,abig advocatefor youth development.

Resonating was his mantra, based on aMāori proverb, which hebelieves

giveshim aclear pathway andwhich translatesas‘the footsteps we lay down

in our past, create thepaving stones on which we stand today’.

Plus,thereisKamua, ka muri–‘I walk backwardsintothe futurewith my eyes

fixedonmypast’.

News

Issue 38

17 November 2022

Jonathan suggested to students that the past is central toand shapes

both their present and future identity. Wecarry our past into our future,

with everything we do now orinthe next few years having abearing and

foundation on who we are, whatwedoand whatwebecome.

Therefore, the next fewyears aresignificant.

Making the Mostofthe Last Years at College

Jonathan encouraged Year 12 students to make the most of their last year at

College next year,and forthe Year 11 students,oftheir last twoyears; urging

them not to let thetime pass them by,and encouraging ‘constantlearning

and creating, seizing opportunities, enjoying the opportunities available’,

saying ‘get engaged and involved in anything and everything youcan’.

Students were reminded they will all be leaders of the school from next

year on, and that their next year will lay the paving stones for standing on

beyond that. Jonathan said that 2023Year 12 and 13 students can set the

tone and culture ofAshburton College, and younger students look up and

aspiretobelike senior students.Students mostly remember the names and

faces of the students older than themselves, remembering how seniors

behave,lead and interact with students,peers and staff.Noted wasthatthis

is areal privilege,but also areal responsibilityand with work to be done.

Avalid point was the many adults who would love to go back to their last

few years of school, because it’s atime ofhope, opportunity, creation, fun

and freedom –atime never able to be repeated, which is sobering and

thought-provoking.

Put tostudents was the fact that they will never have another Year 12 or

another Year 13, and the importance ofsetting their paving stones, and

making the time memorable.

APlug forAshburton!

Acknowledged was the fact that many students can’t wait to get out of

Ashburtonordon’t see themselves staying afterleaving school,the same –

Jonathan said –ashewas at thatage.

However, he said, maybe this has changed now –because it should have,

as Ashburtonand its business environmenthas changed,bringing so many

moreopportunities to do so much in Ashburton.

Jonathan never anticipatedbeing back in Ashburtonbut nowthatheis, he

is passionate about Ashburtonand advised students they could be too. He

said it makes him question why, when finishing study, he didn’t consider

returning.

Theopportunities in Ashburtonare many, whether IT,banking and finance,

planning, project management, marketing and design, architecture,

engineering,accounting,machineryand systems designand manufacture,

hydrology, hairdressing, dairy farm management, livestock trading, sales

and insurance, financial advice, large animal veterinary, farming advisory,

agronomy and international commodity trading, and more –Ashburton

doesitall now, and in manysectors has leaders in their fieldnationallyand

internationally and some truly world-class operations.

Thereare so manyopportunities to carve out really successful and lucrative

careers in and around Ashburton.

Sage advice was, byall means; go further afield, ‘get out of dodge for a

bit’, see the world, always continuing to think explore and learn, but don’t

discount Ashburton. Keep it in mind as apotential destination for all your

good ideas,inspirations,aspirations and ambitions.Come back.

But first,heurged,‘make your final years at AshburtonCollege count, give it

allyou can, work hard, enjoylearning,embracethe leadership opportunities

you’ll get and enjoythe year’.

Jonathan concluded with congratulations to all on their achievements,and

with good wishes to all forthe years ahead.

Feedback sought on highway speeds

Waka Kotahi - NZTA is proposing

to lower the speed limit through

Rakaia township to 50km/h and

Mid Canterbury residents are being

urged tohave their say on that and

other changes in their Interim State

Highway Speed ManagementPlan.

The national transport authority wantsto

lowerthe speedlimit on State Highway1

through Rakaia from 70km/h to 50km/h;

and lowerthe speedlimit north of Rakaia

and over the river and rail bridges from

100km/h to 80km/h or 60km/h.

The other proposed changes areonState

Highway 77.

The authority is proposing a 30km/h

variable limit past Ashburton Borough

School (related to school hours), and a

30km/h variable limit past Our Lady of the

Snows primary school and Mt Hutt College

in Methven. It’s also proposed to lower the

speed limit from Methven township to the

newOpukeThermalHotPools to80km/h.

Ashburton Mayor Neil Brown urged Mid

Canterbury residents to have their say

during Waka Kotahi’sconsultation, which

willrun forfour weeks until 12 December.

“Thespeed limit through Rakaia has long

been aconcern for our local road safety

committee and for Rakaia locals who

struggle to get across the highway safely

at times.

“Thenew hotpools in Methven havealso

createdalot of vehicle andfoottraffic,and

locals there have been lobbying for the

limit on thatstretch of road to be lowered

from 100km/h.”

Clocktower

messagefor

community

Ashburton’s iconic clock tower will

begin glowing orange next week

for the duration of Zonta’s 16-day

international campaign against

domestic violence.

Orangeisthe signaturecolour of the Zonta

Says No campaign, which will run from

Friday 25 November until Saturday 10

December.

The campaign is recognised by all 66

countries where there are Zonta Clubs,

including 28 ClubsinNew Zealand and the

local ZontaClub of Ashburton.

Local club spokesperson Alison Grant

said the campaign was about increasing

awareness of domestic violence, as only

25 per cent of caseswerereported.

“Our mission in Zonta istogive women

and girls equal rights andopportunities, to

eliminate violenceandto improvethelives

and women and girls worldwide.”

Council ChiefExecutiveHamish Riach said

Council supported the campaign message

and lighting up the clock towerorangeat

night would help raise awareness within

the Ashburtoncommunity.

“Family violence happens at all levels

of society, and affects all members ofa

family, soitisimportant people know

wheretheycan access help and support.”

Council staffchangethe colour of the LED

strip lighting byaccessing anelectronic

controller inthe base of the clock tower.

The lights are usually one colour, though

there isanoption for amulti-coloured

display.

The lights are currently glowing purple

to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer

and premature babies. Council receives

several requests throughout the year for

colours to mark specialevents.

After the ZontaSays No campaign finishes

on 10 December, the multi-colour mode

will be chosen to run through the festive

season.

Mr Riach said the clock towerwas widely

recognised as asymbol of Ashburton and

the celebration lights had been afeature

foralmostseven years.

Blindcaps

withdraw

from

World Cup

Donna McCaskill

The NewZealand Blindcaps

have withdrawn from attending

the Blind Cricket World Cup in

India.

New Zealand Blind Cricket

Association board chairwoman

­and player­Donna McCaskill,

of Ashburton, said it was oneof

the hardest decisions the board

had to makebut due to alack of

sponsorship and other factors

there was no other option.

She said the association had

faced with some difficulttimes

recently withthree players

havingtowithdrawdueto

healthreasons and it was not

realistic to replace three

partially sighted key players.

They had also recently lost B1

player Parveen Shankar who

passed away unexpectedly,

which was ‘‘another loss that

has mentally and emotionally

effected players’’, she said,

notifying Facebook followers.

“Taking the players on a

demanding tour of this levelwheretheywouldbetravelling

to multiple citiesacross India ­

often immediately after playing

international matches, would

be to much to add to many

players who arealready

emotionallydrained.

‘‘We would not be presenting

our strongest or most

competitiveteam,’’ she said.

McCaskill had played

alongside Shankar since his

selectionbackin2006. “We

need time to healand then

move ourfocus to next year’s

WorldBlind Games.”

The Board will meet in the

coming weekstodiscuss a

training plan to getthe players

back on track.

Biddy Cowan: overcoming the

odds to build new artistic career

Geraldine identity, Biddy Cowan, has published

asecond illustrated book with help from her

mother, Jenny Waterson.

TheTrueStory of Biddys Cat Sam is based

on an incident where Biddys large Red-pointed

Cymric took on aneighbourhood bully to

protect hispatch for himself andtheother cats

associated with their house. Illustrations and

photos are mainly by Biddy; Jenny wrotethe

rhymingtext.

The book is aimed at the four-to-six-yearold

age range; though, as Jenny says, it could

also appeal to any catlover. Biddy has already

received fan mail from Waima Schoolstudents

in Northland, who are delightedwith her new

book. The students so enjoyed Biddys debut

publication, TheStory ofBeeHappy,thatthey

sent drawings of bees to her in response.

Their teacher writes, The class loved The

True StoryofBiddys Cat Sam so much, they

all wantedtotellmeabout their cats ...Atthe

end ofthe book are two pages inviting the

reader to colour in some cats, before drawing

apictureoftheirown. Biddy is lookingforward

to seeing her readers cat drawings

Jenny explains that while Biddy was born

withtoxoplasmosis, she has alwaysenjoyed a

full and active life. Then, three years ago, at

age 40, Biddy had abrain aneurysm with a

subsequent stroke, which meant the end of

many of the activities she had previously

enjoyed. However, shehas recentlybegun work

with anew physiotherapist, including work in

the gym. Jenny says, She is still in awheelchair,

working towards walking again.

As devastating as the aneurysmwas, it has

given Biddy the opportunity to investigate

talents she had previously ignored, including

rediscovering her artisticability. As well as the

two books, Biddy has produced arange of

hand-drawn greeting cards (GNews 24.06.21)

andaperpetual birthday calendar.

Jennysays thatshe is unsure whether there

will be asequel to the cat story, but they

aregathering photographs anddrawings just

in case.

The fact thatour little paper is basically ama-andpa

the area, which has its appeal. However, sometimes

it lets us down -apologies to Henry Lowen-Smith for

the delay in reporting his very successful exhibition

it this weekend.

Happy Birthday, Biddy! We have enjoyed putting

In summing up their senior school

Tools for Teens creator and facilitator, life coach Jill Griffin. PHOTO: Jan Finlayson

Tools for Teens helps students

discover power of the mind

Toolsfor Teenscreator, Geraldine-based

life coachJillGriffin deliversher mindset

toolkit to students in secondary schools

nationwide. Asignificant part of herlife

coaching work, the programme gives

youngpeopletoolsthey can use throughout

their entire lives, she says.

Its forall students regardlessoftheir

abilities, socio-economic background,

and cohort, says Jill. The jam-packed

facilitatedsessions help students learn

the power of their minds and thoughts.

Decades of professionalacting, drama

and language teaching sit behind Jills

life coaching and are bedded into Tools

for Teensrationale and practice.Working

in schools several years ago, she saw the

need for improvement in how student

wellbeingisaddressed,including relating

to suicide.

The tools, developedafter she trained

as alifecoach,have two standalone strands.

The main one, for Year 11 to Year 13

students, is a journey into themselves,

teaching students about their emotions,

their mind-body connection, agrowth

mindset versus a victim mindset,

mindfulness,and stress relief. Its ahalfhour

talk for all classes, followed by a

90-minute workshop.

That workshop, she says, is adeep

dive. Its for them to discover the

connections for themselves; to start

exploring fight, flight, and freeze -the

limbic brainarea-andhow our thoughts

can change the way we feel, and how

emotions are expressed through our body.

Jill says, The last part of the workshop

is asession onidentifying strengths,

values, beliefs, and goal-setting.

An additional oroptional course,

the other strand of Tools for Teens, is a

two-hour focus onconnection and

communication for Year 9to Year 13

students. Jill says,It uses drama games

and techniques, atalk for all classes, and

then workshops. Its team-building, and

its fun.

What sets Tools for Teensapart from

other tools is that its immersive. It uses

drama; its involved and active, and its

neuroscience-informed. As for her life

coaching, which she practises nationally

and internationally, in person andonline,

Jillsays, Its not aboutgivingadvice. Its

about walking alongside people,helping

them develop.

Tools for Teens is fully facilitated in

schools by Jill. Up to three sessions can

be run during aschool day. Upto50

students can attend each workshop.

027 213 5111 or visit jillgriffin.co.nz.

Council Parksand RecreationManager Bill Steans,

local rhododendron nurseryman KenJordan, local

volunteerDaveAtwood,and myself as the sculpture

trail project coordinator.

Andrew leads aprojectwhere the conservation

and preservation of precious rhododendrons are

paramount. Climate change isaffecting the longterm

environment wherethe plants grow in Taranaki.

He is seeking to match settings with plants from

their collection to maintain their longevity and

protectthe gene poolbydistributing the collections

throughout New Zealand.

Havingalready established a40-plant collection

in the Gore Botanical Gardens, South Canterbury

is an area where Andrew feelsthese plants willthrive.

Thisrelationship between Pukeiti andthe Timaru

DistrictCouncil will hopefully see acollection coming

to Geraldineinthe not-too-distant future.However,

manydiscussions arestill to be had, plus the inevitable

documentation, but Iwill keep youinformed of our

progress in bringing this collection to Geraldine.

David Hay encourages the community

to support therace meeting on Saturday,

26 November, at Ōrari. He says, Geraldine

is one of the top grass courses and is

highly regarded. Nevertheless, the

New Zealand Racing Board is threatening

it with closure.

David says the committee operates

independently of government, so little

can be gained in petitioning political

figures. He says that rationalising the

countrys courses is inevitable but believes

thereisagoodcase for retaining Geraldine.

In the meantime, he hopes that agood

crowd will turn out to support this meeting,

the most important ofthe two annual

meetings held at Geraldine. He says that

traditionally they have enjoyed good

community support with an attendance

of between 2,000-3,000 people. In past

yearsasmall entrance fee has beencharged.

To encourage families, entry is now free.

Prize money of $150,000 is at stake,

including the $25,000 Geraldine Cup.

Punters will enjoy anine-raceprogramme.

Henry Lowen-Smiths paintings. Atthe

opening in October, centre Manager Shirin

Khosraviani welcomed Henrybackasone

of Ashburtons own, as he lived there for

70 yearsbefore retiring to Geraldine.

Speaking on behalf ofher husband,

Sylvia Lowen-Smith thanked people for

attending andthe gallery for putting on

the exhibition. She said that the show

had taken two and ahalfyears to organise

because of her husbands ill health.

The titleofthe exhibition is The Wind

of the Homeland.The artist paints in oils

and describes himself as atraditional

realist. The 27canvases, which range

from a1970 painting of Lake Bruner to

a2006 painting of Sutton, capture the

light andmovementofthe SouthIsland

landscapes.

Henry, who painted as Harry Smith

until 1980, has been afull-time artist

since 1978.Heisself-taught, and includes

AustenDeans and Douglas Badcock among

his mentors.According to the exhibition

programme, at one time, hetravelled

over 3,000 miles ayear in acampervan,

capturing the essenceofthe sceneasit

was by painting en pleinair.

Those familiar with Henrys gallery

on Main North Road will rememberthat

the canvases are quite overpowering in

the confined space ofasmall house.

Curator James Hope hasused the

expanseofthe gallery to allow the

paintings room tobreathe.

GNews apologises for the late

appearance of this article,but note that

if you havent seen this show already,

there is still time to take it in. The exhibition

finishes at the Ashburton Art Gallery

and HeritageCentre at 327West Street

(SH1), Ashburton, on20November.

Makawe

Makawe -hair

Huruhuru -hair, feather, undergrowth

A few weeks back, we learned that the kupu for head

is māhunga. This week, we focus on the kupu for hair,

makawe. Aswith the other words we are learning,

makawe means hair in both singular and plural form;

it can refer to asingle hair orahead full of the stuff.

There are several other words used for hair intereo

Māori; huruhuru isone of them.Mostly, thesedifferences

are iwi or preference based.

In te Ao Māori, the head isconsidered an extremely

tapu (sacred) part of the body, including the hair.

In traditional society, the state and style of apersons

makawe communicated alot about their status and

social ranking. Some people believed that the hair was

connected tothe mana (power) aperson possessed.

Makawecouldalsoconveymessages about aperson s

physical, emotional, spiritual and mental state. Frazzled

hair was asign ofaperson being inastate of tapu,

and unkempt hair suggested astate ofmourning.

It was not uncommon for Māori to keep their hair

unkempt while the body of their loved one was above

ground. Some of these practices continue to live onfor

Māori today. Whenmy grandmother passed away,my

uncle cut his waist-length dreads off and laid them

with her; asign of his state ofmourning.

Its interesting to consider what apersons makawe

conveys abouttheir stateofbeingtoday and thelearned

judgements we make about apersons hair based on

our own social groups. JORDYN OSBORNE

Harcourts Happenings -November

2022

Peak month so farthis year for sales -12houses in Geraldine sold in October,

sixofthemattributabletoHarcourts, and November is alsolooking promising.

And what aMovemberweare having (how is the facial hair progressingchaps?).

At time of writing, we have justhad ournew anniversary weekend-thereare not

enoughsuperlatives for the Harcourts GeraldineFestival and theweek preceding-

MelbourneCup,NZTrotting and Galloping Cup week, the ChristchurchShowfor

thosewho were able to get away, and then the Alpine EnergyArt Exhibition opening

on Thursday evening, an exuberant streetfestivalonFriday, alovelySoulFood

concert in St Marys on Friday night, and then the awesome dayinthe Domainon

Saturday. Agreatarray ofstalls, and it is hoped the stall holders profited well.

Theweatherwas kind for the generous garden owners to show theirgardens at

their best and theatmosphere wasamazing.Thereare far too many people to thank

individually, butitwas extremelyhumbling to see the volunteers and community

involvement in what are, in many cases, thankless and behindthe scenes tasks.

We were all partied outbySunday, then thismorningfirst thingwas the“IamHope”

auction in Timaru. The60-hour build,two bedroomhouse sold for $210,000withthe

proceeds to childmental health. In additiontoGumbootFriday thismust be ahuge

help for the services they provide. Also remember“Toot for Tucker”on29November

to top up the foodbank as the countdown to Christmas begins -asweknow it’s not

all sleighbells and unadulterated joy for everyoneatthis time of the year.

Havingsaidthat, Ifeelcertain after the buzz and success of the last week even more

peoplewill nowwanttolive here, buyingorselling -you hadbetter hurry! We have

orders for lots of different price ranges, butparticularly those in excess of $1M.

Making child care

affordable for families

Formanyworking families

here in Ashburton, child

care is abighouseholdcost,

which is whywe’re making

child caremoreaffordable

forlow and middle income

families.

Werecently announced

that our governmentis

significantly expanding

child careassistance,

cutting costs forworking

parentsand supporting

more children into early

education.

Ontop of this, we’re

further boosting Working

forFamilies and the Best

Start payment, providing

more supporttohelpease

thepressure.

Assomeone whohas seen

first­hand the positive

impact good early

childhood education can

make,thisisapolicy that is

dear to myheart andIam so

proud of.

This expansion willsee 54

per cent of all NewZealand

families with children now

being eligible for

subsidisedchild care

assistance and willkick in

fromApril1next year.

Theexact amount

families will save on child

care costs will depend on

the number of hoursthey

work, thewages they areon,

the number of hoursofchild

care perday,and thecost of

theirearly child care

education centre.

Forexample, aMid

Canterbury family with two

parentsboth working 40

hours per week on $26 per

hour with twochildren

under five whowillnot have

been eligible for child care

assistance, nowwill be

eligible for $252 perweek.

Child care assistancehas

been neglected for more

than adecade, since income

thresholds werefrozenby

National in 2010.

I’m really proud that the

changes we’re making will

see thousands of parents

given back the choice to do

what’sbest for their family–

Iknow what adifference

this willmake.

By reducing financial

barriersand better

supporting parentswho

want to enter workor

further training, we’re also

helpingfilllabour

shortages, whichisgood

news for Ashburton

families,local businesses

andour economy.

These next steps buildon

theworkthatour

government hasalready

done to ease costofliving

pressuresonNew

Zealanders in theface of

global inflation, including

ourcostof living package,

which includes the fuel tax

cutand more.

We’re also taking action

on supermarkets to make

sure Kiwis are paying afair

price at thecheckout,

becausewe’refed up with

supermarkets earning $1

million aday in excess

profits while people are

paying apremiumfor the

basics.

Atatimewhenfamilies

arefeeling the cost­of­living

spike, ourgovernmentis

investing in what matters

most.

I’mreallyproud that

we’re nowtaking thenext

steptomakesure childcare

is within reachfor parents

andthat families herein

Ashburton have more

support to cover other costs.

three year old hen, were among

the pets at aStJoseph's School

Pupils drew inspiration from

the recent Ashburton A&P

grounds last week with plenty

of parents and grandparents in

attendance.

The day included awellsupported

pet day with dogs

galore, two miniature ponies,

two lambs, achicken and acat,

as well as home industries

with floral art and sand saucer

works.

Pets and their charges who

Ashburton Musical Club

The Club was presented with "An Afternoon of Song" on

Sunday 6th November. The musicians were Alex Doig

(baritone) and Emma Gilkison (soprano), accompanied by

pianist Jeremy Woodside.

Alex commented onthe comparatively small number of

songs for baritone soloists. Many of the lyrics came from

English poets, some of whom wrote the accompanying

music. The subject matters ofthe songs were sea, land and

military endeavour; all of which told astory. Alex’s selection

included; “The Vagabond, Bright is the ring of words”

(Vaughan Williams), “Fair Robin ILove” (Mechem), “Sea

Fever, “The Bells of San Marie”, “Vagabond” (all from

Masefield poems), “Spring” (Argento), “A Shropshire Lad”

(Butterworth), “TheOld Superb” (Stanford), “Fearnomorethe

heato'the sun”(Quilter), “SilentNoon” (Williams), and “Three

Saltwater Ballads” (Keel).

Emma, inastrong soprano voice, sang from musical

theatre; “Spring” (Argento), “Somewhere over the Rainbow”

(Arlen), “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” (Lloyd

Webber) and finishing with “Irish Blessing” (Chilcott).

The piano accompaniment was demanding and played

by Jeremy withsympathy and emphasis when required. The

programme was thought provoking and well received. The

musicians were generous in sharing their experiences with

club membersafter the finish of the recital.Agreat afternoon
