“Teachers have noticeda<br />

definite declineinlanguage<br />

ability and acquisition over<br />

the last few yearsand the<br />

Kahui Ako are committed to<br />

growing awareness and<br />

improving this for ourakonga<br />

over thecomingyears,” she<br />

said.<br />

Posters are going up in<br />

public places such as the<br />

library, recreationsites and<br />

It is just oneofthe initiatives<br />

Te Whatu Ora Waitaha Canterbury<br />

system wide operations centre controller<br />

Hector Matthews said pharmaciesand<br />

healthcare providers in the district could<br />

manage decreased demand for testing,<br />

which was akey tool to help New Zealand<br />

recover fromand live with covid.<br />

“Covid­19 tests are free and widely<br />

available. You can get free rapid antigen<br />

tests(RATs) from anumber of local<br />

pharmacies in <strong>Ashburton</strong> and somepeople<br />

can alsoget them from kura or their<br />

workplaces. If you cannot leavehomeor<br />

there is no RAT collection site within<br />

twenty minutes from your home, you can<br />

call 0800 222 478 and alocal provider will<br />

work with you to find asuitable access or<br />

delivery option.<br />

“You can get aPCR test fromyour local<br />

healthcare provider if you need one, inline<br />

with the Ministry of Health’s testing<br />

strategy. If you are not enrolled at ageneral<br />

practice in the area, Eastfield Health is<br />

able to provide PCR testing to you.’’<br />

However, walk­in testing was not<br />

available at any of the general practices,<br />

those in need must phone ahead to make an<br />

appointment, shesaid.<br />

With covid in the community people with<br />

cold or flu symptomsare advised to get a<br />

test as soon as they start to feel unwell.<br />

‘‘Doing atest and reporting the result<br />

meansyou can get the helpyou need as<br />

early as possible.”<br />

presenting an exhibition on the<br />

art of Henry(Harry) Lowen­<br />

Smith.<br />

The Wind of the Homeland is a<br />

collection of undisturbed<br />

landscapes inspired by scenery<br />

found across New Zealand.<br />

Henry, born in Wakanui in<br />

1932, has been painting for over<br />

60 years. He is colourblind and<br />

cannot easily distinguish reds<br />

andgreens, which makes his<br />

vivid but realistic native<br />

bushscapes and grassland<br />

paintingsall the more<br />

impressive.<br />

At 14 he was offered free entry<br />

to the Canterbury School of Fine<br />

Arts, ‘‘which Ideclined,’’ he said.<br />

‘‘I wantedtogoforwardand find<br />

my own styleofpainting’’.<br />

Self­taught, he explored<br />

techniques around<br />

contemporary realism, usingoil<br />

as hispreferred medium.<br />

At the <strong>Ashburton</strong>Societyof<br />

Art’s veryfirst exhibition58 years<br />

ago he sold two paintings, and<br />

realising peopleloved his artas<br />

much as he didinspired him to<br />

pursuehis passions.<br />

‘‘I enjoy local landscapes and<br />

then went on to paint New<br />

Zealandwide,’’ he said,<br />

describing how he wasfortunate<br />

to have aflexible working<br />

environment in his younger<br />

years which allowed him to<br />

continuepaintingwhileworking<br />

asabuilder.<br />

To gather inspiration forhis<br />

workand to expand his<br />

knowledge of NewZealand<br />

scenery,heandhis wife, Sylvia,<br />

would travel up to 3000 miles<br />

(about4820kilometres)per year.<br />

‘‘There wouldn’t be abackroad<br />

we haven’t been on,’’ Henry said.<br />

His collection presents a<br />

seriesoftranquil landscapes and<br />

cityscapes that easily capture<br />

NewZealand’s rugged beauty<br />

and diverseenvironments.<br />

Henry haswon severalawards,<br />

both national and international,<br />

and hashad buyers from around<br />

theworld using hiswork forboth<br />

End of School Year Looming<br />

Another school year is nearing the end. The<br />

senior students have finished classes and NCEA<br />

exams arecurrently taking place.<br />

As theschoolcommunityworks hardtofinishthe<br />

year strongly, we arealso busy planning for2023.<br />

Part of this planning involves Teacher Only<br />

‘ACCORD’ Days on 21 and 22 <strong>November</strong>. The<br />

ACCORD days are for schools around New<br />

Zealand toplan ahead on how toimplement the changes that have<br />

come from the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA)<br />

Review of Achievement Standards.This is alarge and complex piece of<br />

work that we hopewill strengthen New Zealand’s education system and<br />

qualifications framework forour rangatahigoingforward.<br />

Exam Time CanBeStressful<br />

As mentioned, NCEA exams have recently started. Exams can be a<br />

stressful time of year forstudents and fortheir widerhouseholds! It is at<br />

timeslike these thatstudents can develop and demonstratetheir grit.<br />

A2014 study in theUSfound that grit is abetter predictorofsuccess than<br />

intellectual talent.Gritismade up of fivecomponents:<br />

• Courage – the abilitytotriumph over fear<br />

• Conscientiousness – the desiretodoatask well<br />

• Perseverance – keeping goingthroughstruggle<br />

• Resilience – abilitytobounceback from adversity<br />

• Passion – feelingenthusiastic or excitedfor<br />

something, or about doing something<br />

In the words ofone of the authors, Angela Duckworth, ‘Grit issticking<br />

with your future, day in, day out; not just for the week, not just for the<br />

month, but for years; and working really hard tomake that future a<br />

reality’.<br />

Exams areanexcellentopportunitytogrowand develop thatgrit.<br />

NetSafePresentation<br />

Last week we were fortunate to have Paula Wistrand from NetSafe<br />

presenttoour staff andofferawebinar to our parentcommunity.NetSafe<br />

is the organisation in New Zealandthatprovides onlinesafetyadviceand<br />

reporting.Their work is aligned to the Harmful Digital Communications<br />

Act2015.<br />

Paula's presentations were highly informative and provided food for<br />

thought. Some of the statistics provided sobering reading. These include<br />

insights into our current reality such as 73% ofteenagers across the<br />

countrylearningabout sexfrompornography, and26% of young people<br />

under21years of age havingexperienced bullying or harassmentonline.<br />

Twoofthe keytakeawaysfor me were:<br />

• Separate the behaviour from the technology,and focus on education–<br />

manyofthe behaviours displayedare not neworspecific to onlineor<br />

the 21st Century. Technology does,however,pose unique challenges.<br />

Education is critical to get young people thinking about what is<br />

appropriate and why, when interacting online, so that the values we<br />

expect ofpeople in the real world are also demonstrated inonline<br />

environments.<br />

• Positive role modelling by adults is important –it is no secret that<br />

public groups and comment functions on social media platforms are<br />

oftenhotbeds of toxicity, negativity and misinformation. This content<br />

is oftengeneratedbythe adultsthat our teenagerslook up to.Young<br />

people noticeand take their cues from whatthey see.<br />

Whāia te itikahurangi, ki te tuohokoe,hemaunga teitei<br />

Pursue whatinspiresyou; show perseveranceand endurance<br />

Phoenix Chorus and National Anthem<br />

The Phoenix Chorus, with Angie Cresswell as<br />

Musical Director and Conductor, and Stephen<br />

Diedricks accompanying, again provided the<br />

Processional,aperformance, and the Recessional<br />

as they did forthe Year 13 Graduation Ceremony.<br />

The National Anthem for this evening was very<br />

ably led by Tamsin Cartney and Maria Lawn<br />

(pictured right, leftand right).<br />

Welcome by MC,DeputyPrincipal Hannibal Ikahihifo<br />

Hannibal opened the evening saying –<br />

Engā mana, Engā reo, Engā karangatanga<br />

maha<br />

Tena koutou,tena koutou,tena tatoukatoa<br />

Ngā mihi ahau ki tēnei whenua me ōna uri ka<br />

mihi au ki Kati Huirapa<br />

Etūana ahau hei māngai mō tēnei kura<br />

Kei konei ahau ki te mihi atukiakoutou<br />

Eharikoa ana ahau ki te pōwhiriiakoutou<br />

Ko te tūmanakonei, kiapai te wā ki konei<br />

He puawaitanga harakeke, he rito whakakī<br />

whārarua<br />

Nō reira, nāia tākumihi atukiakoutou<br />

Following the singing of the National Anthem, Hannibal spoke saying Malo<br />

e lelei, Kia orana koutou katoatoa, and giving a very warm welcome to<br />

students,staff, parents,caregivers,whānau and invited guests.<br />

He emphasised that, on this evening, wecome together to celebrate the<br />

commitment, perseverance,achievements and successes made by our Year<br />

11 and 12 students this year.<br />

Additionally,henoted that, being new to the school and community, he felt<br />

fortunate to be in the position to be apart ofthis celebration of rangatahi<br />

achievements.<br />

Principal’s Address<br />

Principal Ross Preece addressed the students,<br />

similarly to those at the Year 13 Graduation<br />

Ceremony aweek prior, welcoming all to the<br />

celebration of achievementsofthe Year 11 and<br />

12 students,plus providing an opportunityfor<br />

parents and caregivers to celebrate.<br />

Ross referenced the challenges for<br />

students over the past three years of COVID<br />

interruptions,online learning,illness or thatof<br />

family members, and having teachers absent<br />

forthe same reasons.<br />

Thelack of assemblies and large-scale sporting and cultural events have all<br />

impacted, lessening some ofthe enduring memories which students take<br />

forwardwith them.<br />

However, the COVID pandemic was unique in that itprovided the entire<br />

world with aunique shared experience, at the same time; suggested as<br />

unique in mankind’s historyinthat, globally,every nation has faced asimilar<br />

set of challenges. Ross suggested, inthat regard, we can perhaps view<br />

ourselves as historymakers.<br />

Ross referred to the skills and dispositions needed to be successful in the<br />

future and in employment, including flexibility and adaptability, creativity<br />

and co-operation, and the ability toaccess and work with digital tools. He<br />

noted that the experiences of the last three years will stand them in good<br />

stead, asteachers and students have had to become creative problemsolvers.<br />

The work ofteachers was acknowledged, including the flexibility they<br />

have shown in supporting students, and managing classroom and online<br />

teaching; as was the support ofBoard Members with their oversight,<br />

wisdom and governance.<br />

Students were reminded thatapplying the AshColl WayValues,and striving<br />

to AchieveQuality, ShowPride inwhatthey do,how they appear,and being<br />

Respectful to others,will always stand them in good stead fortheir futures.<br />

Students returning in 2023 were challenged to make the most of the<br />

opportunities at College and, for those leaving for employment, Ross<br />

recommended they look for anoption which extends them and brings a<br />

sense of fulfilment. He said afifty year working lifeistoo long to be doing<br />

something they don’t enjoyorwhich doesn’t bring satisfaction. However, he<br />

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

have afuturethatfeeds their soul’.<br />

Ross concluded by congratulating students about to be on stage to<br />

be acknowledged and receive awards, saying that the most pleasing<br />

developmentsare personal growth and maturity.<br />

celebratedfor their accomplishments is awonderful,but all tooinfrequent,<br />

occasion.<br />

Jonathan backgrounded hisschooling in <strong>Ashburton</strong>, noting he had a‘really<br />

good time’atCollege, was Green House Executive Vice-Captain, and then<br />

left for university studying law and sociology. Overseas travel followed<br />

beforereturning to work as acommercial lawyer in Christchurch.<br />

Akey message here was developing as anew lawyer, keeping at it, and<br />

getting to know (most of the time he said) whathewas doing.<br />

On the topic of leaving school, Jonathan suggested tostudents that postsecondaryschool<br />

they cantake the path well trod (out of school,totertiary,<br />

training or employment) or do something entirely different. In his view, he<br />

said, there isalso no need to rush into avocation, work or university. What<br />

he suggested was important was to make sure‘your path is yours, not just<br />

what you think mightbeexpectedofyou,orwhat everyone else mightbe<br />

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

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

Another point ofconsideration was his relocation back to <strong>Ashburton</strong>, with<br />

his family, saying he was ‘really enjoying’ being back in <strong>Ashburton</strong> but<br />

probably had never thought hewould be saying that, or living back here,<br />

until an opportunityarose.<br />

Jonathan asked‘WhatisLearning, whatdid he wish he’d heard when he<br />

wasinYear 11 and 12.<br />

Some keypoints were –<br />

• Going into the last year or two years of schooling, istoknow and<br />

understandwhy you’re here.<br />

• The pointofschool being to effectively transfer howand whatyou learn<br />

in school to other situations and to life.<br />

• Rote learning, or memorising information, without meaningfully<br />

understanding it,isn’t the goal.<br />

• Just completing typical school tasks quickly, but without meaningful<br />

understanding,isnot fun or rewarding at all and not whyyou’reatschool.<br />

• Understand that you’re there totrain your brain, to develop focus, to<br />

acquire a problem-solving mindset, to improve how you formulate,<br />

communicate and express ideas, and to surprise your teachers.<br />

• Haveaninquiring mind,and you’ll be abletoapply those skills in whatever<br />

youend up doing next,and you’ll find that wherever yougoorwhatever<br />

youdofromherewillbesomuch morestimulating and rewarding forit.<br />

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

this mindset, you just have to be motivated and willing to try tosolve<br />

problems.<br />

• Don’t think of it as‘going to school’; think of school as the placewhereyou<br />

have the opportunityto‘constantly learnand create’.<br />

• Itinvolves hard work and attention sure, but constantly learning and<br />

creating can be fun, and so rewarding.<br />

BeingYoung andTaking Opportunitieswas Another Topic<br />

Jonathanreminded students they have everythingahead of them, and have<br />

so much opportunity. He referenced Sir Ian Taylor, founder of Animation<br />

Research,abig advocatefor youth development.<br />

Resonating was his mantra, based on aMāori proverb, which hebelieves<br />

giveshim aclear pathway andwhich translatesas‘the footsteps we lay down<br />

in our past, create thepaving stones on which we stand today’.<br />

Plus,thereisKamua, ka muri–‘I walk backwardsintothe futurewith my eyes<br />

fixedonmypast’.<br />

News<br />

Issue 38<br />

<strong>17</strong> <strong>November</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

Jonathan suggested to students that the past is central toand shapes<br />

both their present and future identity. Wecarry our past into our future,<br />

with everything we do now orinthe next few years having abearing and<br />

foundation on who we are, whatwedoand whatwebecome.<br />

Therefore, the next fewyears aresignificant.<br />

Making the Mostofthe Last Years at College<br />

Jonathan encouraged Year 12 students to make the most of their last year at<br />

College next year,and forthe Year 11 students,oftheir last twoyears; urging<br />

them not to let thetime pass them by,and encouraging ‘constantlearning<br />

and creating, seizing opportunities, enjoying the opportunities available’,<br />

saying ‘get engaged and involved in anything and everything youcan’.<br />

Students were reminded they will all be leaders of the school from next<br />

year on, and that their next year will lay the paving stones for standing on<br />

beyond that. Jonathan said that 2023Year 12 and 13 students can set the<br />

tone and culture of<strong>Ashburton</strong> College, and younger students look up and<br />

aspiretobelike senior students.Students mostly remember the names and<br />

faces of the students older than themselves, remembering how seniors<br />

behave,lead and interact with students,peers and staff.Noted wasthatthis<br />

is areal privilege,but also areal responsibilityand with work to be done.<br />

Avalid point was the many adults who would love to go back to their last<br />

few years of school, because it’s atime ofhope, opportunity, creation, fun<br />

and freedom –atime never able to be repeated, which is sobering and<br />

thought-provoking.<br />

Put tostudents was the fact that they will never have another Year 12 or<br />

another Year 13, and the importance ofsetting their paving stones, and<br />

making the time memorable.<br />

APlug for<strong>Ashburton</strong>!<br />

Acknowledged was the fact that many students can’t wait to get out of<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>ordon’t see themselves staying afterleaving school,the same –<br />

Jonathan said –ashewas at thatage.<br />

However, he said, maybe this has changed now –because it should have,<br />

as <strong>Ashburton</strong>and its business environmenthas changed,bringing so many<br />

moreopportunities to do so much in <strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

Jonathan never anticipatedbeing back in <strong>Ashburton</strong>but nowthatheis, he<br />

is passionate about <strong>Ashburton</strong>and advised students they could be too. He<br />

said it makes him question why, when finishing study, he didn’t consider<br />

returning.<br />

Theopportunities in <strong>Ashburton</strong>are many, whether IT,banking and finance,<br />

planning, project management, marketing and design, architecture,<br />

engineering,accounting,machineryand systems designand manufacture,<br />

hydrology, hairdressing, dairy farm management, livestock trading, sales<br />

and insurance, financial advice, large animal veterinary, farming advisory,<br />

agronomy and international commodity trading, and more –<strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

doesitall now, and in manysectors has leaders in their fieldnationallyand<br />

internationally and some truly world-class operations.<br />

Thereare so manyopportunities to carve out really successful and lucrative<br />

careers in and around <strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

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

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

discount <strong>Ashburton</strong>. Keep it in mind as apotential destination for all your<br />

good ideas,inspirations,aspirations and ambitions.Come back.<br />

But first,heurged,‘make your final years at <strong>Ashburton</strong>College count, give it<br />

allyou can, work hard, enjoylearning,embracethe leadership opportunities<br />

you’ll get and enjoythe year’.<br />

Jonathan concluded with congratulations to all on their achievements,and<br />

with good wishes to all forthe years ahead.<br />

Feedback sought on highway speeds<br />

Waka Kotahi - NZTA is proposing<br />

to lower the speed limit through<br />

Rakaia township to 50km/h and<br />

Mid Canterbury residents are being<br />

urged tohave their say on that and<br />

other changes in their Interim State<br />

Highway Speed ManagementPlan.<br />

The national transport authority wantsto<br />

lowerthe speedlimit on State Highway1<br />

through Rakaia from 70km/h to 50km/h;<br />

and lowerthe speedlimit north of Rakaia<br />

and over the river and rail bridges from<br />

100km/h to 80km/h or 60km/h.<br />

The other proposed changes areonState<br />

Highway 77.<br />

The authority is proposing a 30km/h<br />

variable limit past <strong>Ashburton</strong> Borough<br />

School (related to school hours), and a<br />

30km/h variable limit past Our Lady of the<br />

Snows primary school and Mt Hutt College<br />

in Methven. It’s also proposed to lower the<br />

speed limit from Methven township to the<br />

newOpukeThermalHotPools to80km/h.<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Mayor Neil Brown urged Mid<br />

Canterbury residents to have their say<br />

during Waka Kotahi’sconsultation, which<br />

willrun forfour weeks until 12 December.<br />

“Thespeed limit through Rakaia has long<br />

been aconcern for our local road safety<br />

committee and for Rakaia locals who<br />

struggle to get across the highway safely<br />

at times.<br />

“Thenew hotpools in Methven havealso<br />

createdalot of vehicle andfoottraffic,and<br />

locals there have been lobbying for the<br />

limit on thatstretch of road to be lowered<br />

from 100km/h.”<br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong>’s iconic clock tower will<br />

begin glowing orange next week<br />

for the duration of Zonta’s 16-day<br />

international campaign against<br />

domestic violence.<br />

Orangeisthe signaturecolour of the Zonta<br />

Says No campaign, which will run from<br />

Friday 25 <strong>November</strong> until Saturday 10<br />

December.<br />

The campaign is recognised by all 66<br />

countries where there are Zonta Clubs,<br />

including 28 ClubsinNew Zealand and the<br />

local ZontaClub of <strong>Ashburton</strong>.<br />

Local club spokesperson Alison Grant<br />

said the campaign was about increasing<br />

awareness of domestic violence, as only<br />

25 per cent of caseswerereported.<br />

“Our mission in Zonta istogive women<br />

and girls equal rights andopportunities, to<br />

eliminate violenceandto improvethelives<br />

and women and girls worldwide.”<br />

Council ChiefExecutiveHamish Riach said<br />

Council supported the campaign message<br />

and lighting up the clock towerorangeat<br />

the <strong>Ashburton</strong>community.<br />

“Family violence happens at all levels<br />

of society, and affects all members ofa<br />

family, soitisimportant people know<br />

wheretheycan access help and support.”<br />

The lights are usually one colour, though<br />

there isanoption for amulti-coloured<br />

The lights are currently glowing purple<br />

to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer<br />

withdraw<br />

from<br />

World Cup<br />

Donna McCaskill<br />

The NewZealand Blindcaps<br />

have withdrawn from attending<br />

the Blind Cricket World Cup in<br />

India.<br />

New Zealand Blind Cricket<br />

Association board chairwoman<br />

­and player­Donna McCaskill,<br />

of <strong>Ashburton</strong>, said it was oneof<br />

the hardest decisions the board<br />

had to makebut due to alack of<br />

sponsorship and other factors<br />

there was no other option.<br />

She said the association had<br />

faced with some difficulttimes<br />

recently withthree players<br />

havingtowithdrawdueto<br />

healthreasons and it was not<br />

realistic to replace three<br />

partially sighted key players.<br />

They had also recently lost B1<br />

player Parveen Shankar who<br />

passed away unexpectedly,<br />

which was ‘‘another loss that<br />

has mentally and emotionally<br />

effected players’’, she said,<br />

notifying Facebook followers.<br />

“Taking the players on a<br />

demanding tour of this levelwheretheywouldbetravelling<br />

to multiple citiesacross India ­<br />

often immediately after playing<br />

international matches, would<br />

be to much to add to many<br />

players who arealready<br />

emotionallydrained.<br />

‘‘We would not be presenting<br />

our strongest or most<br />

competitiveteam,’’ she said.<br />

McCaskill had played<br />

alongside Shankar since his<br />

selectionbackin2006. “We<br />

need time to healand then<br />

move ourfocus to next year’s<br />

WorldBlind Games.”<br />

The Board will meet in the<br />

coming weekstodiscuss a<br />

training plan to getthe players<br />

back on track.

Biddy Cowan: overcoming the<br />

odds to build new artistic career<br />

Geraldine identity, Biddy Cowan, has published<br />

asecond illustrated book with help from her<br />

mother, Jenny Waterson.<br />

TheTrueStory of Biddys Cat Sam is based<br />

on an incident where Biddys large Red-pointed<br />

Cymric took on aneighbourhood bully to<br />

protect hispatch for himself andtheother cats<br />

associated with their house. Illustrations and<br />

photos are mainly by Biddy; Jenny wrotethe<br />

rhymingtext.<br />

The book is aimed at the four-to-six-yearold<br />

age range; though, as Jenny says, it could<br />

also appeal to any catlover. Biddy has already<br />

received fan mail from Waima Schoolstudents<br />

in Northland, who are delightedwith her new<br />

book. The students so enjoyed Biddys debut<br />

publication, TheStory ofBeeHappy,thatthey<br />

sent drawings of bees to her in response.<br />

Their teacher writes, The class loved The<br />

True StoryofBiddys Cat Sam so much, they<br />

all wantedtotellmeabout their cats ...Atthe<br />

end ofthe book are two pages inviting the<br />

reader to colour in some cats, before drawing<br />

apictureoftheirown. Biddy is lookingforward<br />

to seeing her readers cat drawings<br />

Jenny explains that while Biddy was born<br />

withtoxoplasmosis, she has alwaysenjoyed a<br />

full and active life. Then, three years ago, at<br />

age 40, Biddy had abrain aneurysm with a<br />

subsequent stroke, which meant the end of<br />

many of the activities she had previously<br />

enjoyed. However, shehas recentlybegun work<br />

with anew physiotherapist, including work in<br />

the gym. Jenny says, She is still in awheelchair,<br />

working towards walking again.<br />

As devastating as the aneurysmwas, it has<br />

given Biddy the opportunity to investigate<br />

talents she had previously ignored, including<br />

rediscovering her artisticability. As well as the<br />

two books, Biddy has produced arange of<br />

hand-drawn greeting cards (GNews 24.06.21)<br />

andaperpetual birthday calendar.<br />

Jennysays thatshe is unsure whether there<br />

will be asequel to the cat story, but they<br />

aregathering photographs anddrawings just<br />

in case.<br />

TheTrueStory of Biddys Cat Sam isavailable<br />

GHS senior school likened towhitewater rafting<br />

In summing up their senior school<br />

experience, GeraldineHighSchool (GHS)<br />

head students William Wilson and<br />

Amelia McKeown compared it to whitewater<br />

rafting. Both students alluded to the<br />

difficultiesimposedbylockdown, with the<br />

impactonboththeiracademic experience<br />

as well as the social lifeofthe year.<br />

Principal Simon Coleman echoed the<br />

sentiments, saying they had only been<br />

abletoconductone student-led assembly<br />

during the whole year. Relying on the<br />

example of Sir EdmundHilary, he offered<br />

some reflections on the attitudes and<br />

IN BRIEF<br />

values neededtosucceed in ones chosen<br />

pathway.<br />

The guest speaker, rugby refereeing<br />

great Colin Hawke MNZM, offered<br />

reflections on his life. He remembers<br />

having to take his own advice -trust<br />

your judgment -when he gavethe game<br />

to Walesopponents at Cardiff Arms Park.<br />

He was notpopular withthe home crowd<br />

the Geraldine Festival. The 11th hour<br />

of the 11th day of the 11th monthof1918<br />

was the moment that hostilities<br />

ceased in Europe. Four yearsofcarnage<br />

were over.<br />

The hubbub of the festival<br />

notwithstanding, 20orsomembers<br />

and friends of the RSA gathered at<br />

the rooms foraservice of remembrance<br />

and to lay awreath atthe memorial<br />

stone. At the same time, from the<br />

centre stage, festival emcee OJ also<br />

honoured the fallen, pausing to wonder<br />

Tools for Teens helps students<br />

discover power of the mind<br />

Toolsfor Teenscreator, Geraldine-based<br />

life coachJillGriffin deliversher mindset<br />

toolkit to students in secondary schools<br />

nationwide. Asignificant part of herlife<br />

coaching work, the programme gives<br />

youngpeopletoolsthey can use throughout<br />

their entire lives, she says.<br />

Its forall students regardlessoftheir<br />

abilities, socio-economic background,<br />

and cohort, says Jill. The jam-packed<br />

facilitatedsessions help students learn<br />

the power of their minds and thoughts.<br />

Decades of professionalacting, drama<br />

and language teaching sit behind Jills<br />

life coaching and are bedded into Tools<br />

for Teensrationale and practice.Working<br />

in schools several years ago, she saw the<br />

need for improvement in how student<br />

wellbeingisaddressed,including relating<br />

to suicide.<br />

The tools, developedafter she trained<br />

as alifecoach,have two standalone strands.<br />

The main one, for Year 11 to Year 13<br />

students, is a journey into themselves,<br />

teaching students about their emotions,<br />

their mind-body connection, agrowth<br />

mindset versus a victim mindset,<br />

mindfulness,and stress relief. Its ahalfhour<br />

talk for all classes, followed by a<br />

90-minute workshop.<br />

That workshop, she says, is adeep<br />

dive. Its for them to discover the<br />

connections for themselves; to start<br />

exploring fight, flight, and freeze -the<br />

limbic brainarea-andhow our thoughts<br />

can change the way we feel, and how<br />

emotions are expressed through our body.<br />

Jill says, The last part of the workshop<br />

is asession onidentifying strengths,<br />

values, beliefs, and goal-setting.<br />

An additional oroptional course,<br />

the other strand of Tools for Teens, is a<br />

two-hour focus onconnection and<br />

communication for Year 9to Year 13<br />

students. Jill says,It uses drama games<br />

and techniques, atalk for all classes, and<br />

then workshops. Its team-building, and<br />

its fun.<br />

What sets Tools for Teensapart from<br />

other tools is that its immersive. It uses<br />

drama; its involved and active, and its<br />

neuroscience-informed. As for her life<br />

coaching, which she practises nationally<br />

and internationally, in person andonline,<br />

Jillsays, Its not aboutgivingadvice. Its<br />

about walking alongside people,helping<br />

them develop.<br />

Tools for Teens is fully facilitated in<br />

schools by Jill. Up to three sessions can<br />

be run during aschool day. Upto50<br />

students can attend each workshop.<br />

EXCITING PROSPECTS FOR THE GERALDINE<br />

SCULPTURE TRAIL Earlyin<strong>November</strong>,visitors from<br />

Pukeiti were in town to walk through the<br />

Rhododendron Dell and tosee the Geraldine<br />

Sculpture Trail project first-hand.<br />

Andrew Brooker and Lynn Bublitz from the Pukeiti<br />

Rhododendron Trust,aninternationally recognised<br />

rhododendron collection on the north-westernslopes<br />

of Mt Taranaki, were introduced to Timaru District<br />

Council Parksand RecreationManager Bill Steans,<br />

local rhododendron nurseryman KenJordan, local<br />

volunteerDaveAtwood,and myself as the sculpture<br />

trail project coordinator.<br />

Andrew leads aprojectwhere the conservation<br />

and preservation of precious rhododendrons are<br />

paramount. Climate change isaffecting the longterm<br />

environment wherethe plants grow in Taranaki.<br />

He is seeking to match settings with plants from<br />

their collection to maintain their longevity and<br />

protectthe gene poolbydistributing the collections<br />

throughout New Zealand.<br />

Havingalready established a40-plant collection<br />

in the Gore Botanical Gardens, South Canterbury<br />

is an area where Andrew feelsthese plants willthrive.<br />

Thisrelationship between Pukeiti andthe Timaru<br />

DistrictCouncil will hopefully see acollection coming<br />

to Geraldineinthe not-too-distant future.However,<br />

manydiscussions arestill to be had, plus the inevitable<br />

documentation, but Iwill keep youinformed of our<br />

progress in bringing this collection to Geraldine.<br />

Ethans love of photography<br />

leads tofull-time career<br />

From ayoung age, EthanHewson knew<br />

that photography would play apart in<br />

his future. He has now realised that dream.<br />

Ethan Hewson Photography is in the<br />

business of capturing special moments<br />

forpeople,locally andall overNew Zealand.<br />

Growing up in Mayfield and then<br />

moving to Geraldine in 2014, where he<br />

was homeschooled, Ethan alwayshad an<br />

eye for agreat shot. He bought his first<br />

camera in2011 and has been taking<br />

pictures ever since. Learning through<br />

animationand filmmaking when he was<br />

younger,heeventually transitioned back<br />

to still photography and now specialises<br />

in weddings and portrait sessions.<br />

Ethan says, The best part of wedding<br />

photography is capturing the moments<br />

we all hold to be precious. He has<br />

photographed numerous weddings over<br />

the last season and is now looking to fill<br />

his diary for the 2023-2024 season with<br />

wedding, engagement and portrait shoots.<br />

I love to capture the emotion,the thought,<br />

Geraldine Trotting Clubcommittee member<br />

David Hay encourages the community<br />

to support therace meeting on Saturday,<br />

26 <strong>November</strong>, at Ōrari. He says, Geraldine<br />

is one of the top grass courses and is<br />

highly regarded. Nevertheless, the<br />

New Zealand Racing Board is threatening<br />

it with closure.<br />

David says the committee operates<br />

independently of government, so little<br />

can be gained in petitioning political<br />

figures. He says that rationalising the<br />

countrys courses is inevitable but believes<br />

thereisagoodcase for retaining Geraldine.<br />

In the meantime, he hopes that agood<br />

crowd will turn out to support this meeting,<br />

the most important ofthe two annual<br />

meetings held at Geraldine. He says that<br />

traditionally they have enjoyed good<br />

community support with an attendance<br />

of between 2,000-3,000 people. In past<br />

yearsasmall entrance fee has beencharged.<br />

To encourage families, entry is now free.<br />

Prize money of $150,000 is at stake,<br />

including the $25,000 Geraldine Cup.<br />

Punters will enjoy anine-raceprogramme.<br />

On-coursebetting is available.Catering<br />

opening in October, centre Manager Shirin<br />

Khosraviani welcomed Henrybackasone<br />

of <strong>Ashburton</strong>s own, as he lived there for<br />

70 yearsbefore retiring to Geraldine.<br />

Speaking on behalf ofher husband,<br />

Sylvia Lowen-Smith thanked people for<br />

attending andthe gallery for putting on<br />

the exhibition. She said that the show<br />

had taken two and ahalfyears to organise<br />

because of her husbands ill health.<br />

The titleofthe exhibition is The Wind<br />

of the Homeland.The artist paints in oils<br />

and describes himself as atraditional<br />

realist. The 27canvases, which range<br />

from a1970 painting of Lake Bruner to<br />

a2006 painting of Sutton, capture the<br />

Makawe<br />

Makawe -hair<br />

Huruhuru -hair, feather, undergrowth<br />

A few weeks back, we learned that the kupu for head<br />

is māhunga. This week, we focus on the kupu for hair,<br />

makawe. Aswith the other words we are learning,<br />

makawe means hair in both singular and plural form;<br />

it can refer to asingle hair orahead full of the stuff.<br />

There are several other words used for hair intereo<br />

Māori; huruhuru isone of them.Mostly, thesedifferences<br />

are iwi or preference based.<br />

In te Ao Māori, the head isconsidered an extremely<br />

tapu (sacred) part of the body, including the hair.<br />

In traditional society, the state and style of apersons<br />

makawe communicated alot about their status and<br />

social ranking. Some people believed that the hair was<br />

connected tothe mana (power) aperson possessed.<br />

Makawecouldalsoconveymessages about aperson s<br />

physical, emotional, spiritual and mental state. Frazzled<br />

hair was asign ofaperson being inastate of tapu,<br />

and unkempt hair suggested astate ofmourning.<br />

It was not uncommon for Māori to keep their hair<br />

unkempt while the body of their loved one was above<br />

ground. Some of these practices continue to live onfor<br />

Māori today. Whenmy grandmother passed away,my<br />

uncle cut his waist-length dreads off and laid them<br />

with her; asign of his state ofmourning.<br />

Its interesting to consider what apersons makawe<br />

conveys abouttheir stateofbeingtoday and thelearned<br />

judgements we make about apersons hair based on<br />

our own social groups. JORDYN OSBORNE<br />

Making child care<br />

affordable for families<br />

Formanyworking families<br />

here in <strong>Ashburton</strong>, child<br />

care is abighouseholdcost,<br />

which is whywe’re making<br />

child caremoreaffordable<br />

forlow and middle income<br />

families.<br />

Werecently announced<br />

that our governmentis<br />

significantly expanding<br />

child careassistance,<br />

cutting costs forworking<br />

parentsand supporting<br />

more children into early<br />

education.<br />

Ontop of this, we’re<br />

further boosting Working<br />

Assomeone whohas seen<br />

first­hand the positive<br />

impact good early<br />

childhood education can<br />

make,thisisapolicy that is<br />

dear to myheart andIam so<br />

proud of.<br />

This expansion willsee 54<br />

per cent of all NewZealand<br />

families with children now<br />

being eligible for<br />

subsidisedchild care<br />

assistance and willkick in<br />

fromApril1next year.<br />

Theexact amount<br />

families will save on child<br />

care costs will depend on<br />

the number of hoursthey<br />

work, thewages they areon,<br />

the number of hoursofchild<br />

care perday,and thecost of<br />

theirearly child care<br />

education centre.<br />

Forexample, aMid<br />

Canterbury family with two<br />

parentsboth working 40<br />

hours per week on $26 per<br />

hour with twochildren<br />

under five whowillnot have<br />

been eligible for child care<br />

assistance, nowwill be<br />

eligible for $252 perweek.<br />

Child care assistancehas<br />

been neglected for more<br />

than adecade, since income<br />

thresholds werefrozenby<br />

National in 2010.<br />

I’m really proud that the<br />

changes we’re making will<br />

see thousands of parents<br />

given back the choice to do<br />

what’sbest for their family–<br />

Iknow what adifference<br />

this willmake.<br />

By reducing financial<br />

barriersand better<br />

supporting parentswho<br />

further training, we’re also<br />

helpingfilllabour<br />

shortages, whichisgood<br />

news for <strong>Ashburton</strong><br />

<strong>Ashburton</strong> Musical Club<br />

The Club was presented with "An Afternoon of Song" on<br />

Sunday 6th <strong>November</strong>. The musicians were Alex Doig<br />

(baritone) and Emma Gilkison (soprano), accompanied by<br />

pianist Jeremy Woodside.<br />

Alex commented onthe comparatively small number of<br />

songs for baritone soloists. Many of the lyrics came from<br />

English poets, some of whom wrote the accompanying<br />

music. The subject matters ofthe songs were sea, land and<br />

military endeavour; all of which told astory. Alex’s selection<br />

included; “The Vagabond, Bright is the ring of words”<br />

(Vaughan Williams), “Fair Robin ILove” (Mechem), “Sea<br />

Fever, “The Bells of San Marie”, “Vagabond” (all from<br />

Masefield poems), “Spring” (Argento), “A Shropshire Lad”<br />

(Butterworth), “TheOld Superb” (Stanford), “Fearnomorethe<br />

heato'the sun”(Quilter), “SilentNoon” (Williams), and “Three<br />

Saltwater Ballads” (Keel).<br />

Emma, inastrong soprano voice, sang from musical<br />

theatre; “Spring” (Argento), “Somewhere over the Rainbow”<br />

(Arlen), “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” (Lloyd<br />

Webber) and finishing with “Irish Blessing” (Chilcott).<br />

The piano accompaniment was demanding and played<br />

by Jeremy withsympathy and emphasis when required. The<br />

programme was thought provoking and well received. The<br />

musicians were generous in sharing their experiences with<br />

club membersafter the finish of the recital.Agreat afternoon<br />
