First steps taken towards<br />

bridge replacement plan<br />

• By Geoff Sloan<br />

A NEW replacement for New<br />

Brighton’s “lifeline” Pages Rd<br />

bridge will be built slightly north<br />

of the existing one, allowing the<br />

current bridge to remain open<br />

while the replacement is being<br />

constructed.<br />

The project marked a major<br />

milestone last week when a<br />

hearings panel heard public<br />

submissions on the $65 million<br />

project with more than 250<br />

individuals and organisations<br />

giving their views on the project<br />

and draft design.<br />

THe city council is wanting to<br />

replace the old earthquakedamaged<br />

bridge with a new one,<br />

better able to handle evacuations<br />

in the event of a natural disaster.<br />

It is expected to take a few<br />

months for the submissions to be<br />

collated, before the final project is<br />

presented to city councillors for<br />

a vote.<br />

Coastal Ward city councillor<br />

Celeste Donovan said the Pages<br />

Rd bridge was, in her view, the<br />

number one project for the east.<br />

“It provides the lifeline link<br />

to the area. So we know if there<br />

was a tsunami or another event,<br />

it provides the key linkage for<br />

the eastern suburbs to get out, so<br />

it is really vital we get that work<br />

completed as soon as possible”.<br />

A report by council staff said<br />

if nothing was done, the bridge<br />

would continue to deteriorate,<br />

SUBSTANDARD: The earthquake-damaged Pages Rd bridge currently meets only 15-20 per cent of the new building<br />

standards with the council hearing submissions on the plans and design for a replacement.<br />

risking the safety of thousands<br />

of residents. Donovan says<br />

council and most submitters<br />

were united in their calls for a<br />

new bridge.<br />

The “Gateway to New<br />

Brighton” project would see<br />

the bridge replaced, along with<br />

changes to surrounding streets<br />

and intersections.<br />

The aim is to significantly<br />

improve traffic flow in, and<br />

out of the area, with one lane<br />

for eastbound traffic into New<br />

Brighton, and two lanes for<br />

vehicles heading out of the<br />

seaside suburb.<br />

Stench persists as insurance<br />

wait delays repair work<br />

• By Anna Sargeant<br />

THERE APPEARS to be no<br />

end in sight for residents forced<br />

to put up with the foul stench<br />

being emitted from Bromley’s<br />

fire-damaged wastewater<br />

treatment plant.<br />

The city council is waiting for<br />

an insurance payout before it<br />

can repair the plant.<br />

Two filters at the plant were<br />

destroyed during a fire in<br />

November 2021, releasing a<br />

pungent and rotten stench<br />

across the city.<br />

Residents<br />

have<br />

complained<br />

about nausea,<br />

headaches,<br />

worsening<br />

asthma, and<br />

deteriorating<br />

Phil Mauger mental health<br />

due to the smell.<br />

A temporary system was put<br />

in place, but the vile odour still<br />

remains.<br />

At a public meeting, Mayor<br />

Phil Mauger told residents<br />

delays to the insurance payout<br />

was holding up progress.<br />

“One of the things we’re<br />

doing – which is causing us a<br />

bit of grief – is we’re waiting<br />

for our insurance payout and<br />

BURNT: The Bromley wastewater treatment plant in 2017 after being damaged by fire.<br />

that might be one month, two<br />

months, three months, so<br />

that’s getting worked on at the<br />

moment.”<br />

Bromley resident Vickie<br />

Walker said after two-and-ahalf<br />

years people had run out of<br />

patience.<br />

“As we’ve been told for quite<br />

a while, they’re still waiting for<br />

the settlement of the insurance,<br />

so they can go ahead with what<br />

they plan, but I’d like to see it<br />

happening now so that we know<br />

that it’s not going to be a problem<br />

again.”<br />

City councillor Sam<br />

MacDonald said the council was<br />

working “around the clock” to<br />

sort settlement.<br />

“As soon as we can do that we<br />

will go public with it, so everyone<br />

in the community has confidence<br />

that we can deliver what is<br />

needed for that community and<br />

for the wider Christchurch.”<br />

Last year, an independent<br />

review found the city council’s<br />

recovery from the 2021 fire was<br />

poor and slow. – RNZ<br />

Community<br />

pantry gets<br />

helping hand<br />

THE TRAVIS Country<br />

community will have a newly<br />

constructed share pantry from<br />

this weekend.<br />

Nick Hamilton,<br />

who conjured<br />

up the project<br />

with his wife<br />

Megan, said he<br />

and builder Lucas<br />

Firth will start<br />

construction on<br />

Saturday.<br />

It comes after<br />

a donation of<br />

Nick<br />

Hamilton<br />

materials from Bunnings to get<br />

the pantry up and<br />

running.<br />

Hamilton said it was a big help,<br />

considering the retail cost of the<br />

materials was $860.<br />

“It’s fantastic. They have<br />

donated a big garden shed,<br />

shelving, bins for produce, and a<br />

cupboard for the book exchange<br />

towards this project.<br />

“It’s very gratifying for someone<br />

like Bunnings to help out with<br />

the equipment. It means we don’t<br />

have to run around fundraising.<br />

“It helps the community<br />

initiative get off the ground.”<br />

Once the pantry is set up,<br />

Hamilton said he will inform the<br />

community via Facebook.<br />

• To contribute to the<br />

pantry, contact Nick<br />

New life for neglected garden<br />

• By Emiily O’Hagan<br />

COMMUNITY gardeners in<br />

New Brighton have been given<br />

the challenge of restoring an<br />

eight-year-old sensory garden.<br />

The space was originally<br />

designed by Smile Dial NZ to<br />

enable children and people with<br />

disabilities to be able to feel,<br />

smell, see, taste and hear the<br />

garden.<br />

New Brighton community<br />

gardening<br />

manager<br />

Catherine<br />

O’Neill said<br />

over the years<br />

the facility has<br />

become a little<br />

neglected.<br />

“Over time<br />

it’s got a little bit<br />

overgrown so<br />

Catherine<br />

O’Neill<br />

we’re giving it a bit of love to get it<br />

back into shape.”<br />

The sensory garden is located<br />

on a plot of land at the back of<br />

the New Brighton Community<br />

Garden.<br />

The team is hoping to connect<br />

the two gardens to be able<br />

to better showcase the work<br />

of staff and volunteers, like<br />

newly-appointed assistant Vic<br />

Nebbeling, pictured right.<br />

Funding and administration<br />

manager Lin Klenner said visitors<br />

might start getting to know Vic.<br />

“Then maybe if they’re not too<br />

shy, they might feel like coming<br />

into the community garden as<br />

well.”<br />

The restoration process has<br />

started slowly, with the gardeners<br />

cutting through tall bushes.<br />

Workers from Christchurch<br />

company Naylor Love have also<br />

volunteered their time and a<br />

chainsaw to demolish some of the<br />

overgrown trees.<br />

Klenner believes they’ve made a<br />

great start by clearing everything<br />

out.<br />

Public consultation on<br />

the Fire and Emergency levy<br />

for 2026—2029<br />

Fire and Emergency New Zealand has opened public consultation<br />

on our proposed levies for the period 1 July 2026—30 June 2029.<br />

Fire and Emergency is funded almost entirely through levies on eligible<br />

insurance policies. When the Fire and Emergency New Zealand Act 2017 came<br />

into effect a transitional levy funded the new organisation until the new levy<br />

arrangements, under Part 3 of the Act, could be brought in. The new levy will<br />

take effect on 1 July 2026.<br />

We are only what<br />

we always were…<br />

Before introducing the new levy arrangements, we are required to consult on the<br />

proposed levies and the activities we plan to undertake during the levy period.<br />

To support consultation on the levy arrangements for the period<br />

1 July 2026—30 June 2029, a discussion document on our website sets out:<br />

• the activities we propose to undertake over the levy period and the<br />

estimated costs of delivering these activities,<br />

• our proposed levy rates, and<br />

• the assumptions we have made in estimating our costs and the steps<br />

involved calculating the proposed levy rates.<br />

We welcome submissions from levy payers, insurance policy holders, their<br />

representatives and interested members of the public on our proposals to help<br />

inform the Government’s decisions on the final levies for 2026—2029.<br />

More information on this consultation and how to<br />

submit a response can be found on our website at<br />

Nature inspires artists to tackle<br />

climate change with new trail<br />

AN OUTDOOR gallery,<br />

featuring artists young and old,<br />

is breathing life into the former<br />

Avonside Girls’ High site.<br />

The new A-MAZE-INK art<br />

trail is being developed by the<br />

Climate Action Campus with<br />

assistance from the city council<br />

graffiti team.<br />

“We feel incredibly privileged<br />

to be able to come to work each<br />

day and be greeted by beautiful<br />

art from so many diverse<br />

artists, enhancing our space,”<br />

campus learning advisor Rachel<br />

Cummins said.<br />

The oldest artist who<br />

responded to the call-out was<br />

82-year-old Reng Yu Chen – who<br />

goes by Mr Chen.<br />

His pink and blue mural<br />

featuring lotus and swans<br />

takes up the back wall of an old<br />

classroom, and is the first thing<br />

you see when you step foot into<br />

the grounds from Avonside<br />

Drive.<br />

“I wanted to paint beautiful<br />

life, flowers, and swans. The lotus<br />

is a sign of beauty and kindness<br />

in Asian culture,” Mr Chen<br />

explained through a translator.<br />

“I love Christchurch. I love the<br />

life here, the people here, the city,<br />

the water, the air, the sunshine,<br />

and the climate.”<br />

Seventeen-year-old Amelia<br />

Green is one of the youngest<br />

artists featured in the series. Her<br />

lifelike renditions of native New<br />

Zealand birds cover an otherwise<br />

bland toilet block.<br />

“I’m on a gap year thinking<br />

about what I want to do for a<br />

career, and I thought how can I<br />

put myself out there as an artist.<br />

I’m not the type of person who<br />

can just sit around,” Amelia said.<br />

“I was inspired by nature,<br />

it’s an important part of New<br />

Zealand culture. I had a lady<br />

walk past recently and she<br />

got emotional because the tui<br />

reminded her of her mum who<br />

had passed away. That was<br />

special.”<br />

Council graffiti co-ordinator<br />

Mel Hillier said the trail<br />

showcased the value of art.<br />

“The MAZE is showcasing<br />

the art community by valuing<br />

the voices of artists of every age<br />

and encouraging creativity with<br />

another opportunity to celebrate<br />

art in our city,” she said.<br />

“Giant wall murals of beauty<br />

painted by artists of every genre<br />

with their varied perceptions of<br />

treasuring and protecting the<br />

climate are everywhere.”<br />

What is the Climate Action<br />

Campus?<br />

The campus offers a place<br />

to learn, develop and initiate<br />

climate change ideas and<br />

actions. It has more than 1000<br />

students and not-for-profits<br />

working at it every week.<br />

Tunnel houses, bee hives,<br />

a bush kindy, butterfly and<br />

skink habitats, and vegetable<br />

gardens are just a few of the<br />

projects onsite.<br />

‘Don’t cut our school lunches’ – pupils<br />

• By Sasha Watson<br />

SCHOOL PUPILS are making a<br />

heart-felt plea to Prime Minister<br />

Christopher Luxon: ‘Please<br />

don’t take away our free school<br />

lunches’.<br />

It follows a public meeting held<br />

last week at Haeata Community<br />

Campus, to discuss what an up<br />

to 50 per cent funding cut to the<br />

Ka Ora Ka Ako – Healthy School<br />

Lunch programme could be like.<br />

Christchurch East MP Reuben<br />

Davidson, who set up the<br />

meeting, was joined by Labour<br />

education spokesperson Jan<br />

Tinetti, several city councillors<br />

and members from the Waitai<br />

Coastal-Burwood-Linwood and<br />

Waipapa Papanui-Innes-Central<br />

Community Boards.<br />

Davidson has also been to<br />

various schools to get their<br />

feedback on the proposed cuts<br />

and will be delivering a stack<br />

of letters from several five to<br />

14-year-old pupils to Luxon this<br />

week.<br />

One letter from a Haeata<br />

Community Campus year 8<br />

student mentioned the rising<br />

costs of food and ingredients.<br />

“Mr Luxon, since buying food<br />

and ingredients to make lunches<br />

are expensive, didn’t you make<br />

the expenses higher for people to<br />

buy, and families and especially<br />

the chiefs that makes lunches for<br />

us children and family?<br />

“Foods digest in our body<br />

which brings us happiness<br />

because we have food that made<br />

us full . . . happiness makes us<br />

want to be a better person. Being<br />

a better person allows us to learn<br />

better and be smarter which<br />

means we’ll get good grades.”<br />

Another Haeata year six<br />

student wrote in their letter to<br />

Luxon: “The free lunch is very<br />

important for the community<br />

who don’t have money to buy<br />

lunch or food.<br />

“There’s some families out<br />

there that do not have the money<br />

to buy dinner so the leftover<br />

lunches from our school is<br />

sometimes their dinner.”<br />

Principals, pupils, parents<br />

and meal providers Nourish<br />

Ōraka, a community enterprise<br />

established to provide healthy<br />

school lunches in Shirley,<br />

attended the Haeata meeting to<br />

talk about their concerns.<br />

“They have all seen the many<br />

CONCERNED: A public meeting was held last week at Haeata Community Campus, to<br />

discuss what funding cuts to the Ka Ora Ka Ako – Healthy School Lunch programme could<br />

be like. Christchurch East MP Reuben Davidson has also been to various schools to get<br />

their feedback on the proposed cuts, including Shirley Intermediate School.<br />

positives of the programme and<br />

are very concerned at what the<br />

cuts will take away from our<br />

communities and ultimately<br />

from our kids,’’ Davidson said.<br />

“We also know from local<br />

principals and teachers that it has<br />

increased attendance, reduced<br />

sick bay queues and helped kids<br />

to focus and learn.<br />

“I can’t see any reason we’d<br />

want to lose that progress.”<br />

Davidson said any government<br />

that is truly focused on the cost<br />

of living, school attendance and<br />

achievement “should listen to the<br />

voice of our children’’.<br />

“David Seymour, the Associate<br />

Minister of Education, has talked<br />

about halving the programme.<br />

This could mean some schools<br />

that are part of the programme<br />

miss out completely.”<br />

He said the cuts could also<br />

mean schools get a reduced<br />

amount of food, and kids<br />

without lunches would be<br />

singled out.<br />

“We know this is not a good<br />

approach as it creates a stigma<br />

and a lot of kids won’t ask for<br />

lunch out of a fear of drawing<br />

attention to themselves.<br />

“The solution would be to<br />

maintain and grow the programme,<br />

that’s what I’m calling<br />

for and why I’m asking people to<br />

sign our petition and write letters<br />

to the ministers.<br />

“No-one campaigned on cutting<br />

school lunches and no-one<br />

should be.”<br />

continuing education<br />

80 years of lifelong Term 2 at WEA<br />

learning at Risingholme<br />

A curious mind opens the door to<br />

learning something new. Whether its<br />

picking up a new hobby, flexing a dormant<br />

creative muscle, or learning a language or<br />

professional skills needed for employment<br />

or personal fulfilment, the benefits of<br />

lifelong learning are numerous.<br />

Risingholme has been developing and<br />

delivering a range of community education<br />

courses for 80 years, allowing tens of<br />

thousands of learners the opportunity to<br />

upskill, create, and learn something new.<br />

Our courses cover a range of subjects<br />

from pottery to art, fabric and wood<br />

crafts, languages, health & wellbeing and<br />

foundation courses. Although our course<br />

programme often changes in response<br />

to local needs with new courses being<br />

developed every year, some popular courses<br />

such as sewing, woodwork, and pottery<br />

have stood the test of time and have run<br />

continually since the 1940s!<br />

Part of our success as a community<br />

education organisation has been the ability<br />

to design courses that are flexible and<br />

accessible, making it easy for you to jump<br />

into learning at whatever age and stage<br />

of life you are in. We offer day and night<br />

classes across three locations city-wide. Our<br />

courses range from one-day workshops<br />

through to longer 8 week courses meaning<br />

that learning can fit around busy modern<br />

schedules.<br />

When Risingholme was gifted to<br />

the people of Christchurch in 1943 by<br />

local philanthropist J.R McKenzie, it<br />

was envisioned that it would become an<br />

important hub for the “health, amusement,<br />

and instruction of the public”. 80 years on,<br />

this social purpose remains at the heart<br />

of Risingholme as learning and leisure<br />

are combined in the accessible, flexible,<br />

and diverse programme of offerings we<br />

continue to run.<br />

Join us throughout the year as we<br />

celebrate our big 80th with events across<br />

the year that reflect on our history as an<br />

organisation and look forward to the<br />

future of lifelong learning in Ōtautahi<br />

Christchurch. We are partnering with local<br />

organisations to bring together exciting<br />

community events that foster connection,<br />

and highlighting the creative spirit of our<br />

learners through an upcoming showcase<br />

exhibition in term 3. Finally, we are also<br />

hosting a ‘Have a Go’ day in term 3 where<br />

you can explore some of our courses<br />

through small guided taster sessions and<br />

discover where your own curiosity might<br />

take you.<br />

Build a more self-sufficient lifestyle and<br />

cultivate skills at WEA, that avoid corporate<br />

solutions and minimise costs.<br />

“The Stretching Sloth” will share<br />

techniques to practice self-massage therapy.<br />

Ease niggly neck pains or tension headaches<br />

without the expense of a masseuse. Starts<br />

29th <strong>April</strong>, 4 Mondays, 1-3pm, $60.<br />

Explore permaculture design and the 7<br />

layers of a food forest at Ōtākaro Orchard<br />

with facilitator Roz Rolls. On Tuesday 7th<br />

May 12.30-1.30pm $12.<br />

Make your own cream moisturiser<br />

with healing properties from kawa kawa,<br />

comfrey and calendula. Calendula soothes<br />

irritated, dry skin. Jo McGinn reveals<br />

natural formulas without nasties or a hefty<br />

price tag! Sat 25th May, 1.30 - 4.30pm, $29.<br />

The Winter months are the perfect time to<br />

learn something new! Whether you want to<br />

keep active, learn a new skill or get creative,<br />

Papanui Adult and Community Education<br />

has a course to brighten up your Winter!<br />

New in Term 2 are Poetry Writing, a<br />

Writing Self-Editing Workshop, Vegetarian<br />

Indian Cooking, and Slow-Paced Yoga!<br />

Bring variety to your winter meals with<br />

inspiration from one of our Cooking<br />

Courses. Perhaps you have always wanted<br />

to learn a musical instrument? We offer<br />

Ukelele and Guitar. Or try a weekend day<br />

or 2-day practical Workshop such as Basket<br />

Making or Crochet.<br />

Our courses offer a great opportunity<br />

to develop your skills, interests, or a new<br />

hobby, as well as being an ideal place to<br />

If you are “sick and tired of feeling sick<br />

and tired”, give yourself this chance for<br />

change. Harness natural nervous system<br />

patterns with powerful techniques taught<br />

by qualified Alternative Health practitioner,<br />

Replacement<br />

playground plans<br />

‘disappointing’<br />

• By Sasha Watson<br />

RESIDENTS ARE disappointed<br />

by design plans for Thomson<br />

Park playground, which is due to<br />

be replaced.<br />

Waitai<br />

Coastal-Burwood-Linwood<br />

Community<br />

Board member<br />

Alex Hewison<br />

said the design,<br />

which was sent<br />

to him last<br />

week, showed<br />

a smaller<br />

Alex<br />

Hewison<br />

footprint for the proposed playground,<br />

and no tunnel.<br />

“Staff have highlighted that<br />

whilst the footprint has decreased,<br />

and there is no tunnel,<br />

the number of interactive ‘play<br />

things’ remains the same and is<br />

therefore as like for like as possible<br />

without having to order a<br />

custom module playground.<br />

“This is disappointing news<br />

for New Brighton. I don’t think<br />

the community will accept this<br />

as like for like, due to the smaller<br />

size and lack of a tunnel.”<br />

On the Peoples Independent<br />

Republic of New Brighton<br />

Facebook page, one resident<br />

commented the playground’s<br />

design was “very generic”. Another<br />

said it looked smaller and<br />

lost the fort vibe which “the kids<br />

absolutely love”.<br />

Hewison said the playground<br />

is an eastside staple, loved and<br />

used by the community for<br />

decades.<br />

“Elected members were made<br />

aware Thomson Park playground<br />

was unsafe and would be<br />

taken down.<br />

“I advocated that this should<br />

be replaced like for like, and was<br />

assured in a public briefing on<br />

March 28 that the city council<br />

ABSENT: The tunnel, a part of the existing Thomson Park<br />

playground, has not been included in the new design.<br />

will endeavour to do this where<br />

possible.”<br />

City council community parks<br />

manager Al Hardy said the<br />

decision not to include a tunnel<br />

was due to the unavailability of<br />

compatible options within the<br />

modular structure.<br />

“However, it’s important to<br />

note the playground still features<br />

a tunnel in the junior play<br />

module, which is not scheduled<br />

for renewal at this time.”<br />

Hardy said the playground<br />

renewal, which is expected to<br />

start in July, came after a routine<br />

safety inspection in December.<br />

“The swing and large module<br />

were found to be rusting,<br />

compromising their structural<br />

integrity. Additionally, the<br />

inspection report raised<br />

concerns about the original<br />

design of the joists of the large<br />

module due to the age of the<br />

playground, deeming them<br />

insufficient to adequately<br />

support the platforms.”<br />

Hewison had requested<br />

the board be provided with<br />

replacement options, but this<br />

could not be guaranteed. The<br />

playground is not under the<br />

board’s delegation and as such<br />

does not need its approval to go<br />

ahead.<br />

PLANS: The new design for<br />

the playground also has a<br />

smaller footprint.<br />

Inset – Doris Lusk’s The Pumping Station.<br />

Doris Lusk art<br />

a family affair<br />

A NEW interactive artwork in<br />

Linwood Village pays homage<br />

to artist Doris Lusk – and was<br />

designed by her granddaughters.<br />

The sculpture by Natasha<br />

English and Tatyanna Meharry<br />

is sited in Doris Lusk Reserve,<br />

which was named after the<br />

artist. It reimagines one of<br />

Lusk’s most iconic paintings, The<br />

Pumping Station (1958), and was<br />

inspired by the city’s landscape<br />

and the suburb of Linwood,<br />

where the pumping station is<br />

located.<br />

The sculpture, called Pumping<br />

Station Perspective, uses tubular<br />

metal lines to make hill and<br />

pumping station shapes which,<br />

when viewed from the paving<br />

feature, resemble Lusk’s famous<br />

artwork.<br />

The bricks used in the paving<br />

were created by members of<br />

the community in a weekend<br />

workshop at Meharry’s ceramics<br />

studio.<br />

The artwork was requested by<br />

the community as part of the<br />

Linwood Village Master Plan.<br />

“What makes this artwork<br />

particularly special is that the<br />

artists who designed it are<br />

granddaughters of artist Doris<br />

Lusk,” says Waipapa Papanui-<br />

Innes-Central Community<br />

Board chair, Emma Norrish.<br />

“Having that close connection<br />

is remarkable; we’re thrilled<br />

to have been able to work with<br />

Natasha and Tatyanna on this<br />

project. It’s truly a celebration of<br />

the location, the neighbourhood<br />

and the people who lived and live<br />

here.”<br />

The sisters have collaborated<br />

together on several projects,<br />

including winning two supreme<br />

awards at the World of Wearable<br />

Arts in 2013 and 2018.<br />

The pump station still stands<br />

on its original site in Tuam St and<br />

is now home to a salvage yard.<br />

It is one of the oldest remaining<br />

parts of the city’s 19th century<br />

sewerage system.

Quinoa makes for<br />

delicious, light and<br />

tender meatballs<br />

Quinoa & Chicken Meatballs in a<br />

Tomato Sauce<br />

Serves 4<br />

GLUTEN-FREE quinoa is a great<br />

addition to these chicken meatballs, as it<br />

acts as a binding ingredient, helping to<br />

hold the meatballs together (in place of<br />

the usual breadcrumbs that most recipes<br />

use for this purpose) producing lovely<br />

light and tender meatballs.<br />

Ingredients<br />

Meatballs<br />

1/2 cup Alison’s Pantry Quinoa, plus<br />

extra to serve<br />

400g chicken mince<br />

1 small onion, grated<br />

2 garlic cloves, crushed<br />

1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes<br />

1/4 cup chopped parsley, plus more for<br />

garnish<br />

1 medium courgette, grated<br />

Salt and freshly ground black pepper<br />

1/3 cup Alison’s Pantry Pinenuts, toasted,<br />

to garnish<br />

Tomato sauce<br />

2 tbsp olive oil<br />

1 small onion, finely diced<br />

500ml tomato puree<br />

Method<br />

• Place quinoa in a fine sieve and rinse<br />

under cold running water for 1 minute.<br />

Cook rinsed quinoa in a pot of boiling<br />

water for 12-15 minutes until tender to<br />

the bite. Drain well and set aside to cool.<br />

• Preheat oven to 200°C. In a large bowl,<br />

place chicken, quinoa, onion, garlic, chilli<br />

and parsley. Squeeze excess moisture<br />

from grated courgette; add courgette to<br />

the bowl. Season with salt and pepper<br />

and mix well to combine.<br />

• With damp hands (to stop the mixture<br />

sticking), take one tablespoon of mixture<br />

and roll into a ball. Repeat until you have<br />

24. Place meatballs on a baking tray lined<br />

with baking paper, leaving space between<br />

them. Bake for 20 minutes until lightly<br />

browned and firm.<br />

• At the same time, heat oil in a saucepan.<br />

Add onion and cook over a medium heat<br />

for 5 minutes. Add tomato puree and<br />

simmer for 10 minutes. Taste and adjust<br />

seasoning with salt and pepper.<br />

• Once meatballs are cooked, transfer<br />

them to the tomato sauce and gently stir<br />

to coat. Scatter with parsley and pine<br />

nuts and serve with extra cooked quinoa<br />

or pasta, and vegetables or a green salad,<br />

as preferred.<br />

Tip: Make sure you use a fine sieve to<br />

rinse the quinoa otherwise the tiny<br />

grains of quinoa will fall through the<br />

coarse holes in the sieve and be lost down<br />

the sink.<br />

– This recipe was created by Julie Le Clerc<br />

for Alison’s Pantry<br />

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS<br />

Papanui High School<br />

Our School, Our Success, Our Responsibility<br />

“Our aim is simple... to provide the best<br />

education possible for every student.”<br />

At Papanui High School positive<br />

relationships are at the forefront of<br />

what we do. Connecting through a<br />

responsive local curriculum we provide<br />

an opportunity for all students to learn<br />

in a productive and future-focused<br />

environment.<br />

The opportunity to learn from an<br />

innovative and broad curriculum is<br />

critical to providing a pathway that meets<br />

each student’s individual needs. Papanui<br />

High School allows for a greater range<br />

and flexibility in subject choice including<br />

the utilization of the secondary/tertiary<br />

interface. This reinforces the philosophy<br />

underpinning personalised learning and is<br />

strongly supported by understanding our<br />

students’ interests, passions, talents, and<br />

ultimately their career aspirations.<br />

We understand that for effective<br />

learning to take place, it has to be<br />

implemented in such a way that students<br />

will be highly engaged. The school<br />

does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way by<br />

creating learning environments that allow<br />

our students to see value in what they do<br />

and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what<br />

we represent, and we demonstrate this by<br />

having young adults leave our school as<br />

confident learners who have gained the<br />

appropriate qualifications and social skills<br />

to become valued contributing members<br />

of society.<br />

All that we do here is reinforced by<br />

positive relationships, an ethos of caring,<br />

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and<br />

high expectations. The school highly<br />

values the connectedness between<br />

curricular and co-curricular learning<br />

and forming partnerships with our<br />

wider school community. We have a<br />

philosophical understanding that the<br />

holistic development of the student is<br />

critical to individual success.<br />

The school is working hard to<br />

consolidate recent initiatives to ensure<br />

sustained and continuous improvement.<br />

You are invited to view our website, school<br />

charter, ERO report, and/or contact the<br />

school for more information.<br />

We look forward to welcoming all<br />

prospective students and their families/<br />

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS<br />

Te Aratai College inspiring diverse learners<br />

Te Aratai College has a clear focus – to meet the<br />

individual needs of every learner in a safe, caring<br />

environment. Te Aratai College is a place where<br />

every learner is known and valued as an individual<br />

and where whānau-school relationships matter.<br />

From 1954 and the opening of Linwood High<br />

School, to <strong>2024</strong> and our first full year as Te Aratai<br />

College, our kura continues its proud history of<br />

serving its diverse community.<br />

We remain a truly community school, in the<br />

community and of the community. Our large and<br />

diverse catchment contributes to a richness that<br />

reflects Aotearoa-New Zealand’s current identity and<br />

prepares our learners to be active, global citizens.<br />

We have a vibrant, globally-rich culture that<br />

creates a stable, connected learning and social<br />

environment. All our learners therefore can expect<br />

to be challenged, enriched and supported to reach<br />

personalised excellence. With this, they develop<br />

core attributes that will ensure their success<br />

throughout life.<br />

Individuals learn best when who they are<br />

- language, culture and identity - is affirmed.<br />

Enhancing the mana and dignity of the individual<br />

is at the heart of Te Aratai College inspiring our<br />

diverse learners to be their best person. We focus<br />

on personalised success through a pathwayed<br />

curriculum, whereby learners progressively<br />

self-manage and direct their learning pathway<br />

- university, polytechnics and the workforce -<br />

reflecting our name gifted to us by Ngāi Tūāhuriri:<br />

Te Aratai College, Pathway to the Sea.<br />

We would love you to be part of this and we<br />

welcome whānau who wish to know more about<br />

their community’s completely rebuilt and stunning<br />

school.<br />

The Christian Education Network<br />

Working together for the good of students and<br />

families has been a successful recipe for Christian<br />

Integrated Schools in Christchurch.<br />

The Christian Education Network has been in<br />

existence for over ten years. Aidanfield Christian<br />

School, Emmanuel Christian School, Hillview<br />

Christian School, and Middleton Grange School<br />

decided in 2005 that there was much to be<br />

gained by working together cooperatively. They<br />

recognised opportunities to share successful<br />

teaching practice, curriculum development<br />

initiatives across a wide spectrum of school<br />

operations as well as cooperatively strengthening<br />

their special Christian Character. They recognised<br />

that their ability to serve students and families was<br />

greatly enhanced by working together in a close<br />

and trusting relationship.<br />

The success of the network has seen other schools<br />

wanting to join in. Early in the piece Rangiora<br />

New Life School became part of the network. The<br />

schools joined together to support the genesis of<br />

Ashburton Christian School and also culminated<br />

in with the opening of Rolleston Christian School<br />

in 2015.<br />

The schools have developed interlocking<br />

enrolment schemes which assists in providing<br />

transparent pathways in Christian education from<br />

new entrant through to Year 13.<br />

A further strength has been a cooperative<br />

engagement with the Ministry of Education<br />

who have been pivotal in assisting the network’s<br />

successful development.<br />

We need your help to fill our beds.<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre has<br />

23 beds for tamariki to stay during<br />

times of whānau stress or crisis. On<br />

average just 17 of these beds are filled<br />

due to resourcing constraints.<br />

Every empty bed is a missed<br />

opportunity to support a child in need.<br />

Donate today to give Canterbury<br />

tamariki a safe place to sleep.<br />

Cholmondeley Children’s Centre provides<br />

short term emergency or planned respite care<br />

for tamariki when they need extra support due<br />

to complications at home.<br />

Cholmondeley is an independent charity<br />

and costs just under $3,000,000 per year to<br />

run. 20% of this figure is met by Government<br />

funding, and the remaining 80% comes from<br />

the generous support of the Canterbury<br />

community.<br />
