Residents cite traffic concerns<br />

in opposition to Māori school<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

A PLANNED Māori immersion<br />

school for Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

says residents’ concerns over<br />

traffic are unfounded.<br />

Te Pā o Rākaihautū could<br />

be built on 8 ha of the city<br />

council-owned 39.02 ha block at<br />

the junction of Hunters Rd and<br />

Whero Ave.<br />

Fire and Emergency New<br />

Zealand also wants to purchase<br />

0.5 ha of the city council block<br />

at Marine Drive for a new fire<br />

station to replace the current<br />

earthquake-damaged facility,<br />

which is not fit for purpose.<br />

Te Pā board<br />

chair Rangimarie<br />

Parata<br />

Takurua said<br />

students would<br />

study between<br />

the planned<br />

Rangimarie<br />

Parata<br />

Takura<br />

new campus<br />

and the existing<br />

Linwood site, so<br />

residents would<br />

not be significantly<br />

impacted by traffic.<br />

She said arrival and leaving<br />

times would be staggered<br />

throughout the day, as students<br />

travelled between the campuses.<br />

Many would travel to Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> by bus instead of car.<br />

“It’s not like a typical nine-tothree<br />

drop-off plan.”<br />

Parata Takurua said if a land<br />

sale was approved the school<br />

would start releasing more detail<br />

around a transport plan.<br />

The site was chosen to be near<br />

Ngāti Wheke at Rāpaki marae,<br />

who already have a close relationship<br />

with the school.<br />

A survey shows Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> residents are split on<br />

selling unused city council land<br />

to Te Pā o Rākaihautū with<br />

many opposed, citing potential<br />

increased traffic into the area.<br />

The survey was conducted<br />

POTENTIAL: The 39.02 ha block of city council land is used for grazing, but sections could<br />

be sold for the construction of a Māori immersion school and a new fire station. ​<br />

by the Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū<br />

Banks Peninsula Community<br />

Board ahead of next Monday’s<br />

meeting.<br />

Provisional land sale<br />

agreements will be approved<br />

or rejected by the community<br />

board for the school and fire<br />

station.<br />

“There’s quite a few people<br />

who probably aren’t too against<br />

the idea of the school, it’s more<br />

we think that there hasn’t been<br />

enough information provided,”<br />

said Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

Community Association chair<br />

Graeme Fraser.<br />

He said it would “go down<br />

quite badly” with people in the<br />

community if a full traffic plan<br />

was only released after a provisional<br />

land sale.<br />

“People will feel much better<br />

if there are concrete details<br />

down in writing.”<br />

Fraser agreed the staggered<br />

arrival of students would help<br />

address traffic concerns, but<br />

more details needed to be made<br />

publically available.<br />

The survey asked if the proposed<br />

school was a good use for<br />

part of the land.<br />

Of the 424 survey respondents,<br />

168 lived in Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>. The rest were from<br />

outside the area.<br />

Views on the proposed school<br />

were split with 50.9 per cent of<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> respondents<br />

opposed, 34.9 per cent fully in<br />

favour, 8.9 per cent somewhat in<br />

favour, and 5.3 per cent unsure.<br />

Former fire chief’s medals<br />

entrusted to brigade<br />

THE SERVICE medals of<br />

the oldest surviving former<br />

Lyttelton fire chief have been<br />

accepted by the brigade in<br />

recognition of his long service.<br />

John Fogarty, 93, wanted to<br />

display his medals at the fire<br />

station.<br />

He served in the brigade<br />

from 1946 to 1977 and received<br />

a Queen’s Service Medal in<br />

1975 for his long service to the<br />

community and leadership of<br />

the brigade.<br />

“We wanted to honour him<br />

for his service and receive his<br />

service medals to look after<br />

them for safekeeping,” said chief<br />

fire officer Dwayne Pool.<br />

Forgarty served as the<br />

brigade’s senior station officer<br />

from 1972 until his retirement.<br />

The role was equivalent to the<br />

modern chief fire officer role.<br />

Pool accepted the medals for<br />

the brigade in a ceremony,<br />

where Fogarty gave a<br />

presentation on his awards with<br />

family support.<br />

Fogarty and his daughter<br />

Christine had approached<br />

will encourage younger<br />

Residents seek solution to illegal parking<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

ILLEGAL PARKING near the<br />

estuary on Beachville Rd and<br />

the Coastal Pathway is being<br />

monitored by the city council,<br />

as the Redcliffs Residents<br />

Association asks for a permanent<br />

solution before summer.<br />

Enforcement<br />

patrols have<br />

increased in<br />

the area after<br />

association<br />

secretary Pat<br />

McIntosh<br />

called for more<br />

Pat<br />

McIntosh<br />

preventative<br />

measures last<br />

month.<br />

“It is inconvenient for other<br />

users and damages the grass.<br />

The area is classified as footpath<br />

and road reserve,” McIntosh<br />

said.<br />

She said illegal parking<br />

increased significantly over<br />

summer, especially during<br />

weekend evenings.<br />

Many of the vehicles were<br />

fishers who wanted to park<br />

close to the estuary edge, but<br />

campervans and contractor<br />

vehicles were also spotted in the<br />

area.<br />

“People often say that they did<br />

not know it was illegal to park<br />

there, even though they have had<br />

to drive over the kerb to get to<br />

the grassy area and footpath,”<br />

NO-GO ZONE: Vehicles were caught illegally parking on the Beachville Rd waterfront and the Coastal Pathway over<br />

summer. The Redcliffs Residents Association wants it stopped, with a permanent solution found before summer.<br />

said McIntosh.<br />

She said there hadn’t been<br />

any illegal parking witnessed<br />

in the past few weeks, but the<br />

association wants a permanent<br />

solution to the problem before<br />

people start fishing and<br />

picnicking again over summer.<br />

McIntosh asked the Waihoro<br />

Spreydon-Cashmere-Heathcote<br />

Community Board to put up<br />

no parking signs and some low<br />

wooden bollards in key places<br />

along the road, to<br />

discourage people.<br />

City council transport<br />

operations manager<br />

Stephen Wright said<br />

council staff will<br />

investigate and respond<br />

to the association’s<br />

proposals once the<br />

outcomes of increased<br />

enforcement are known.<br />

Stephen<br />

Wright<br />

He said monitoring was<br />

the most effective method<br />

for deterring illegal<br />

parking.<br />

“Signage is not warranted<br />

and is unlikely to be<br />

effective.”<br />

But McIntosh believed<br />

signage could be helpful<br />

as it would give enforcers<br />

and the public something<br />

to reference when telling<br />

people to move their vehicles.<br />

Wright said illegal parking<br />

next to or on the Coastal<br />

Pathway was a “potential<br />

hazard to other road users” and<br />

could cause “damage to public<br />

assets, including the grassed<br />

berm.”<br />

He also said there had not been<br />

any illegal parking observed<br />

since daily monitoring started<br />

on March 19.<br />

All fired-up<br />

Fiery fun was had at the Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> Volunteer<br />

Fire Brigade open day on Sunday. The brigade gave a<br />

kitchen fire safety demonstration.<br />

PROPOSAL: This graphic shows the proposed sections for sale in red to Fire and Emergency<br />

New Zealand for a new fire station and to Te Pā o Rākaihautū for a new school.<br />

Divisions over school plan<br />

• From page 1<br />

In the wider Banks Peninsula<br />

area, respondents were more<br />

favourable to the idea with 78.3<br />

per cent in fully in favour, 2.2<br />

per cent somewhat in favour,<br />

18.5 per cent opposed, and 1.1<br />

per cent unsure.<br />

For the new fire station, survey<br />

results have not been released by<br />

location.<br />

Among all respondents, 85<br />

per cent were in favour of a new<br />

station.<br />

Fraser said some Diamond<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> residents could be<br />

opposed because of the school’s<br />

Māori focus.<br />

“Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> people are<br />

a bit of a mixed bag about things<br />

like that, like everywhere else in<br />

New Zealand. That’s why I’d like<br />

the school to make a stronger<br />

case, because then I think people<br />

like that wouldn’t have anything<br />

to complain about.”<br />

Parata Takarua said “there<br />

may be those elements, but we’ve<br />

got to focus on what the needs of<br />

our communities are.”<br />

Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> School<br />

principal Jill Pears declined to<br />

comment on the survey results<br />

after being approached by <strong>Bay</strong><br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> News saying it was too<br />

early in the process to comment.<br />

The cost of implementing the<br />

land sales or the build are not yet<br />

known.<br />

Te Pā o Rākaihautū’s proposal<br />

report said the Ministry of<br />

Education was committed to<br />

“planning, design, construction<br />

and operating costs for funding<br />

a new school build for Te Pā.”<br />

BLASTING: Firefighter Jim Pollard with an enthusiastic<br />

volunteer. The children visiting the station got to gear up<br />

and try the brigade’s hose equipment.<br />

SHOWCASE: The Diamond <strong>Harbour</strong> brigade gave a<br />

home fire safety demonstration with a FENZ trailer.<br />

An LPG bottle fuelled the flames, demonstrating how<br />

Flying into an electric future<br />

A Cass <strong>Bay</strong> resident<br />

is leading the charge<br />

helping electric planes<br />

take off in New Zealand.<br />

Reporter Dylan Smits<br />

spoke with Gary<br />

Freedman about his<br />

career promoting green<br />

technology<br />

GARY FREEDMAN’S long time<br />

love of hang gliding transitioned<br />

into flying small aircraft as a<br />

hobby in 2012.<br />

“One day I was driving my<br />

electric car to the airfield to fly a<br />

petrol plane and I just knew that<br />

wasn’t quite right. To do all this<br />

work in renewables, I was driving<br />

an electric car, but my hobby was<br />

burning petrol.”<br />

The thought set him off on a<br />

search for innovative companies<br />

investing in electric aviation<br />

technology.<br />

In 2016, before his move<br />

to Cass <strong>Bay</strong> from the United<br />

Kingdom, Freedman visited the<br />

Pipistrel aircraft manufacturer in<br />

Slovenia and took a test flight in<br />

the fully-electric Alpha Electro.<br />

“I just thought it was fantastic.<br />

I really enjoyed it. It was quiet. It<br />

was smooth. The performance<br />

was great and it wasn’t burning<br />

fossil fuels.”<br />

The Alpha Electro is a<br />

two-seater aircraft with<br />

interchangeable battery units<br />

which power an electric motor.<br />

There is no fuel, the only liquid<br />

in the aircraft is coolant for the<br />

motor.<br />

Freedman bought the plane<br />

when founding Electric Air in<br />

2020, making it New Zealand’s<br />

first and only fully-electric plane.<br />

He now flies it regularly from<br />

bases at the Rangiora airfield and<br />

Christchurch Airport.<br />

Freedman loves flying because<br />

it “turns your world into a three<br />

dimensional playground”.<br />

“You have stunning views<br />

below you. It’s a chance to have a<br />

bit of fun and play in the clouds.”<br />

Even better, he says using an<br />

electric plane allows you to fly<br />

“guilt free” without worrying<br />

about burning fossil fuels.<br />

Originally from London,<br />

Freedman says he has<br />

always been outdoorsy and<br />

passionate about protecting the<br />

environment.<br />

Since moving to Cass <strong>Bay</strong><br />

in 2018 with his wife and two<br />

children, he has combined his<br />

passions for flying and clean<br />

energy through Electric Air.<br />

“I’m a person who has<br />

always loved the outdoors and<br />

nature. Even as a young person<br />

I was always pretty aware of<br />

the sensitivity of nature and<br />

biodiversity.”<br />

Promoting knowledge and use<br />

of electric planes in New Zealand<br />

has become one of Freedman’s<br />

life missions.<br />

He claimed a world record<br />

and milestone for electric planes<br />

in 2021 with the world’s longest<br />

flight over water.<br />

The journey took him 78km<br />

from Blenheim to Wellington,<br />

soaring over Cook Strait.<br />

“It was a fantastic feeling. We<br />

had the goal of flying over Cook<br />

Strait because it had been about<br />

100 years since the first flight<br />

over in a petrol plane.”<br />

The flight deliberately<br />

HIGH-FLYING: Freedman often takes scenic trips in the<br />

Alpha Electro. He says the aircraft provides a quiet and<br />

smooth experience.<br />

TAKE-OFF: Gary Freedman is a tireless advocate for electric<br />

airplanes in New Zealand. He hopes to see the purchase<br />

of more models which will bring down aviation emissions.<br />

In 2021 Gary Freedman achieved a world record breaking<br />

flight across the Cook Strait. It was the first time an<br />

electric plane has made the 78km flight from Blenheim to<br />

Wellington.<br />

coincided with the COP26<br />

conference as countries discussed<br />

transition away from fossil fuels.<br />

After making the move,<br />

Freedman has grown to<br />

appreciate the country as a place<br />

open to new ideas.<br />

“New Zealand does have a very<br />

good entrepreneurial spirit, I’ve<br />

found. A great acceptance of, and<br />

interest in, new technology here<br />

and it’s a very good country to try<br />

new things.”<br />

His passion for the<br />

environment extends beyond just<br />

his aviation business.<br />

Involvement in native tree<br />

plantings and pest control efforts<br />

in Cass <strong>Bay</strong> give Freedman a<br />

sense of fulfilment.<br />

“Things like that can give<br />

direct hope to an individual and<br />

help you realise you can make a<br />

difference even on a local level,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Changing the way we fly and<br />

reducing emissions from aviation<br />

is the other end of that scale.”<br />

His commitment to local<br />

conservation work and national<br />

advocacy all come from the same<br />

desire to make an impact on New<br />

Zealand’s environment.<br />

“Sometimes people can feel a<br />

little bit helpless and depressed<br />

about climate change, so I think<br />

doing any little things can help<br />

people feel better about those<br />

really big challenges.”<br />

Freedman’s career in renewable<br />

technology started at UK<br />

company Ecotricity in 2002.<br />

As a head of department, he<br />

organised the installation of wind<br />

turbines on behalf of clients.<br />

His business degree from<br />

Manchester Metropolitan<br />

University set him on track for a<br />

career advocating and marketing<br />

new renewable technologies.<br />

“I was working a lot in wind<br />

and then in solar as it became<br />

more viable economically. My<br />

passion for environmental work<br />

really came along with the<br />

renewable technology.”<br />

From 2010, he worked at the<br />

RES Group and then Airvolution<br />

Energy helping to develop sites<br />

for wind turbines.<br />

After moving to New Zealand,<br />

he has worked for Meridian<br />

Energy and Harmony Energy<br />

coordinating the development of<br />

electric vehicle infrastructure and<br />

solar farms.<br />

Freedman’s interest in electric<br />

planes grew out of his love for<br />

flying.<br />

“At the same time as my work,<br />

I was also flying hang gliders just<br />

as a hobby. Then I got my pilots<br />

licence and actually started flying<br />

small planes.”<br />

The Alpha Electro is now used<br />

for trial flights, pilot training and<br />

as a promotional tool for more<br />

electric aircraft.<br />

Intrigued aviation enthusiasts<br />

listen intently over Easter<br />

weekend as the Electric Air team<br />

showed off the Alpha Electro<br />

at the Warbirds Over Wanaka<br />

international airshow.<br />

“People there are interested in<br />

the old warplanes, but they’re<br />

also interested in the future of<br />

flight.”<br />

Freedman’s dream is to see the<br />

use of electric planes increase in<br />

New Zealand.<br />

Current technology limits<br />

the distance electric planes can<br />

travel, but Freedman believes<br />

New Zealand’s high proportion<br />

of short haul flights, coupled<br />

with a relatively green electricity<br />

grid, makes it the perfect place to<br />

experiment with the technology.<br />

In coming years, Electric Air<br />

is considering the purchase of<br />

more electric planes and wants to<br />

help convert petrol planes to fully<br />

electric models.<br />

Freedman hopes the company<br />

will make a mark on New<br />

Zealand’s emissions profile and<br />

his work will help to pass on his<br />

passion to his <strong>17</strong>-year-old son and<br />

14-year-old daughter.<br />

“I do hope that they will be<br />

encouraged by all the things we<br />

do. You know we drive an electric<br />

car, and go trapping. I think<br />

they’ve both gained a really good<br />

understanding of being good<br />

neighbours with nature.”

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Shining light on world of creepy crawlies<br />

THE CURIOUS lives of insects<br />

are under the microscope<br />

in a Lyttelton author’s new,<br />

illustrated book.<br />

Lily Duval hopes her book will<br />

help to bring the pollinators,<br />

waste-disposal experts, and ecosystem<br />

engineers critical to life<br />

on Earth into the spotlight.<br />

Six Legged Ghosts: The insects<br />

of Aotearoa also explores the<br />

place of insects in history, art,<br />

culture and language.<br />

“The word ‘ghosts’ in the<br />

title reflects how insects can<br />

be invisible, especially for<br />

those of us who live in urban<br />

environments. Their numbers<br />

are plummeting, but we don’t<br />

even realise what we’re losing,”<br />

said Duval.<br />

The book opens with an<br />

investigation of how the 19thcentury<br />

scientific mindset<br />

shaped, and sometimes<br />

constrained, attitudes to insects<br />

and contrasts this with stories<br />

from Māori which demonstrate<br />

a different relationship with the<br />

insect world.<br />

Its scope is not confined to<br />

historical perspectives; the<br />

illustrated book also considers<br />

the treatment of insects in<br />

contemporary art and culture,<br />

details the stark realities of the<br />

insect apocalypse, and highlights<br />

conservation initiatives seeking<br />

to prevent further extinctions.<br />

West Africa seems an<br />

BUG FAN: Lily Duval hopes her new book Six Legged Ghosts will help more people learn<br />

to love insects and appreciate their importance.<br />

unlikely place to begin a deep<br />

dive into the world of New<br />

Zealand’s native insects, but it<br />

was in Senegal in 2018 that a<br />

homesick Duval began to paint<br />

watercolours of New Zealand<br />

wildlife.<br />

“I dropped out of the French<br />

language course I was doing<br />

and started painting threatened<br />

New Zealand species,” says the<br />

self-taught artist. “I’d expected<br />

to do a lot of birds, but instead I<br />

was drawn to insects and other<br />

invertebrates.”<br />

After returning to New<br />

Zealand, Duval’s growing<br />

fascination with insects led her<br />

to pursue a master’s degree in<br />

arts at Canterbury University<br />

not, as might be expected, one of<br />

the science disciplines.<br />

Her thesis, An Inordinate<br />

Disdain for Beetles, imagined the<br />

insect in colonial New Zealand.<br />

One of her supervisors,<br />

Professor Philip Armstrong,<br />

suggested it had the makings of<br />

a book.<br />

Duval is confident the fascination<br />

she’s developed for her<br />

subject will help her book engage<br />

with a wide audience.<br />

“I’m not a scientist, and I’m<br />

not even someone who has<br />

loved bugs their whole life. But<br />

I hope my book shows that you<br />

can learn to love something by<br />

looking closely and getting to<br />

know it.”<br />

More than 100 of Duval’s<br />

watercolours make up the many<br />

images that accompany the<br />

book’s text.<br />

To create her illustrations,<br />

Duval works from macro<br />

photographic images and often<br />

uses multiple views of the same<br />

species to create a naturalistic<br />

depiction.<br />

“There’s been a long history<br />

of representing bugs as these<br />

symmetrical, alien objects,” she<br />

said.<br />

“I’ve tried to disrupt that by<br />

showing the insects in lifelike<br />

ways that reflect their vitality.”<br />

While writing her book Duval<br />

also worked as the researcher of<br />

RNZ’s Critter of the Week slot.<br />

The role led her to collaborate<br />

with chief executive of Forest<br />

and Bird, Nicola Toki, on Critters<br />

of Aotearoa: 50 bizarre but<br />

lovable members of our wildlife<br />

community.<br />

THE<br />

The Christchurch City<br />

Council has proposed<br />

a Long Term Plan that<br />

doesn’t include funding<br />

for The Arts Centre.<br />

Without funding, The Arts Centre<br />

as we know it won’t survive.<br />

We now have a short window<br />

until 21 <strong>April</strong> to publicly request<br />

they support The Arts Centre.<br />

This is a crucial moment to<br />

collectively make our voices<br />

heard – Council will listen if<br />

we’re loud enough!<br />

Sliding door playing up?<br />

Don’t replace it... repair it!<br />

Do your sliding doors no longer glide?<br />

With the right know-how, tools, high<br />

quality spare and specialist replacement<br />

parts - these doors can be repaired to as<br />

good or better than new for a fraction of<br />

the cost of replacing the door.<br />

Sliding Door Specialists Ltd can fix the<br />

problem.<br />

Owned and operated by Stewart Poole,<br />

Sliding Door Specialists Ltd has been<br />

operating across Canterbury for the past<br />

20 years.<br />

From retro 70s through to newer<br />

design doors, they are experts in<br />

repairing all types of home and business<br />

sliding doors.<br />

“Over time, the rollers underneath<br />

become worn or broken. The door<br />

becomes heavy, hard to slide and very<br />

noisy. And often the lock and handle will<br />

not work any more,” explains Stewart.<br />

“We don’t sell new doors, we repair<br />

existing doors and our mobile service<br />

can often have your door sliding better<br />

than new in less than two hours.”<br />

Shrieking, rumbling and stubbornly<br />

sticky doors are the most common<br />

RAll types of<br />

sliding doors<br />

repaired<br />

SLIDING DOORS<br />

REPAIRED<br />

Why Sliding Door Specialists?<br />

RLocks & Handles<br />

repaired/replaced<br />

complaints and according to Stewart<br />

are mostly due to worn roller units and<br />

damaged tracks.<br />

“Single glazed doors generally run on<br />

two rollers. Whereas double glazed doors<br />

are much heavier and require four rollers<br />

to be installed for ease of use, and long<br />

life. We regularly install these ‘double<br />

rollers’ where people have retro-fitted the<br />

double glazing on their doors.”<br />

“As many doors are 20 or 30 years old<br />

we recommend replacing damaged tracks<br />

with a new stainless steel “Magic Track<br />

Cover”. Stainless steel is much harder and<br />

smoother than the old aluminium track<br />

and makes the door slide beautifully.”<br />

To ensure doors are safe and secure,<br />

Sliding Door Specialists also carry a<br />

selection of locks and handles for both<br />

old and new fixtures. They also carry<br />

special safety latches for swimming pool<br />

enclosures.<br />

‘Winning this cup is a real<br />

privilege and well-deserved’<br />

• By Dylan Smits<br />

AKAROA AREA School was<br />

the winner of the Fairplay and<br />

Values Cup at the Canterbury<br />

Area School Association’s festival<br />

last week.<br />

Principal Vicki McIntyre<br />

said the school was “impressed<br />

with the way AAS students<br />

actively engaged, took on new<br />

opportunities, and jumped in to<br />

fill team places, support<br />

each other and try new<br />

experiences.”<br />

CASAFest is run annually as<br />

a friendly tournament between<br />

rural Canterbury area schools.<br />

Thirty senior students<br />

from Akaroa competed at the<br />

festival at Amuri Area School<br />

in Culverden last week, in<br />

sport, academic and dramatic<br />

competitions.<br />

“We are a group of area schools<br />

who all experience the challenge<br />

of isolation. This event has been<br />

running since 2001 and has<br />

developed a strong tradition of<br />

camaraderie across teams, with<br />

students developing long-term<br />

friendships,” McIntyre said.<br />

The Akaroa students won the<br />

cherished fairplay cup for the<br />

first time in 13 years. The festival<br />

is based around the principles of<br />

respect and camaraderie, with<br />

the cup awarded to the school<br />

that receives the most fairplay<br />

points from referees.<br />

“Winning this cup is a real<br />

privilege and well-deserved by<br />

our students. Our head students<br />

were most proud to accept it on<br />

behalf of AAS,” said McIntyre.<br />

She said the school performed<br />

well in basketball, volleyball and<br />

traditional Māori ball game Ki<br />

O Rahi.<br />

“We did not win any rounds<br />

but we were close.”<br />

Some of the Akaroa students<br />

were not “typical” sportspeople,<br />

but McIntyre said they “were<br />

quick learners and team players,<br />

VICTORY: Senior students from Akaroa Area School won the Fairplay and Values Cup at<br />

CASAFest for teamwork and camaraderie during the three-day festival. ​Below – the event<br />

included sport, academic and dramatic competitions.<br />

and were an asset to their<br />

teammates.”<br />

There were also dramatic<br />

challenges, such as a lip syncing<br />

competition, in which McIntyre<br />

said the camaraderie “shone<br />

through.”<br />

Cooking, artistic and<br />

mathematics contests rounded<br />

out the event.<br />

The students stayed with<br />

families in Culverden for the two<br />

nights of the festival.<br />

“Although billeting can be a<br />

daunting experience, they all had<br />

a great time and were hosted by<br />

wonderful families,” McIntyre<br />

said.<br />

Other competing schools were<br />

Cheviot Area School, Oxford<br />

Area School, Hurunui Area<br />

School and Rangiora New Life.<br />

Akaroa Area School will next<br />

host the festival in 2026.<br />

From<br />

family<br />

garage<br />

to snack<br />

empire<br />

• By Monique Steele<br />

A WOOLSTON company is<br />

expanding production of its<br />

South African-style dried meat<br />

snacks once again to keep up<br />

with insatiable demand.<br />

Canterbury Biltong supplies<br />

biltong and bier sticks to supermarkets,<br />

convenience stores and<br />

gas stations across New Zealand,<br />

and exports to around a<br />

dozen countries across Asia-Pacific<br />

and the Middle East.<br />

The company has earned<br />

about $5-10 million a year in<br />

revenue in recent years, according<br />

to director David Stanley,<br />

but he said it was not always so<br />

lucrative when he and partner<br />

Nicole started out in their family<br />

garage in 2002.<br />

“No one really knew what biltong<br />

was in those days in New<br />

Zealand, and the only people<br />

(who) really knew were people<br />

who either travelled to South<br />

Africa, read Wilbur Smith or<br />

were South African,” Stanley<br />

said.<br />

The company spent the early<br />

2000s growing its sales channels<br />

domestically. Production requirements<br />

soared even further<br />

once it got into Australia.<br />

Demand outstripped capacity<br />

and the company finally built<br />

its own factory in Woolston in<br />

20<strong>17</strong>.<br />

“We’re going to be building<br />

onto the factory this year, so<br />

by the end of the year we’ll<br />

basically have enough capacity<br />

for the next four or five years,”<br />

said Stanley.<br />

He said the company recently<br />

got into 200 stores in Thailand,<br />

and has acquired Auckland<br />

company Bootleg Jerky as it<br />

branches out into jerky.<br />

“We’re experiencing some<br />

good growth.” –RNZ<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 <strong>17</strong> 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 />
