Celebrate Matariki with<br />

Tīrama Mai light show<br />

CHECK OUT new<br />

commissioned artworks, take<br />

home a free tree, and soak<br />

in the city sights illuminated<br />

by Tīrama Mai this Puaka-<br />

Matariki.<br />

The city council’s annual<br />

Tīrama Mai event starts at the<br />

weekend, celebrating Puaka-<br />

Matariki in the heart of the city.<br />

Te Matatiki Toi Ora The Art<br />

Centre, Te Pae and Riverside<br />

Market will feature a range of<br />

art and lighting installations<br />

each evening from 5pm until<br />

10pm, from tomorrow until<br />

Sunday, <strong>June</strong> 30.<br />

City council manager of<br />

events and arts Lucy Blackmore<br />

said the annual event, which<br />

celebrates the Puaka and Matariki<br />

stars through art and light<br />

installations, projections, music<br />

soundscapes and storytelling is<br />

always evolving with new commissioned<br />

works.<br />

“An installation of<br />

Papatūānuku, titled MOTHER,<br />

will stand four metres high and<br />

two metres wide, featuring a<br />

stunning design by Xoë Hall, lit<br />

up from inside,” Blackmore said.<br />

It will be in the North Quad of<br />

The Art Centre.<br />

“We’ve also partnered with<br />

Trees for Canterbury to give<br />

away <strong>20</strong>00 small native trees<br />

over the festival. Planting a new<br />

tree in your backyard is a great<br />

way to celebrate the time of<br />

renewal that Te Tau Hou (the<br />

Māori New Year) brings, and we<br />

encourage people to take up this<br />

opportunity.”<br />

On select nights, the giveaway<br />

will be based in front of Te<br />

Pae.<br />

Te Pae has close to 10 installations,<br />

including new lightbox<br />

artworks and a projection animation<br />

by Ariki Creative.<br />

“Other giveaways during the<br />

festival include light-up yo-yos<br />

from our sponsor, Orion, for the<br />

young and young of heart, and<br />

a free sausage sizzle run by The<br />

Hits FM,” Blackmore said.<br />

There will also be storytelling<br />

and kapa haka performances on<br />

select nights. The “test night” for<br />

Tirama Mai is this evening.<br />

The Arts Centre will be<br />

hosting a number of events,<br />

including Te Waiatatanga Mai<br />

o Te Atua (Song of the Gods),<br />

a brand-new exhibition at the<br />

Observatory tower which tells a<br />

version of the Ngāi Tahu creation<br />

story, as written down in<br />

1849 by Matiaha Tiramōrehu.<br />

The Matariki Midwinter<br />

Celebration invites attendees to<br />

honour a loved one who made<br />

a significant impact this year,<br />

while the two-night Garden<br />

City Mākete will feature local<br />

artisans, live performances, and<br />

food offerings. There will also be<br />

kapa haka in the Great Hall.<br />

Matariki<br />

Matariki, the Māori<br />

New Year, is a time of<br />

cultural and spiritual<br />

significance. The<br />

annual event marks<br />

the appearance of<br />

the Matariki star<br />

cluster, also known as<br />

Pleiades, in the early<br />

morning sky.<br />

When these nine<br />

stars become visible, it<br />

signifies the start of a<br />

new year in the Māori<br />

lunar calendar.<br />

Matariki comes<br />

from the phrase<br />

“Ngā mata o te ariki<br />

Tāwhirimātea”, “the<br />

eyes of the god<br />

Tāwhirimātea” and<br />

translates to “little<br />

eyes”, highlighting the<br />

stars’ role as important<br />

markers of time and<br />

seasonal change.<br />

The exact date<br />

varies each year, as it<br />

is determined by the<br />

appearance of the<br />

Matariki star cluster in<br />

the predawn sky.<br />

But this year, the<br />

public holiday lands on<br />

Friday, <strong>June</strong> 28.<br />

Safety upgrades to be made permanent<br />

STREETS IN Aranui will be<br />

permanently upgraded to make<br />

the area safer for people heading<br />

to nearby schools, shops or<br />

passing through the community.<br />

The Waitai Coastal-Burwood-<br />

Linwood Community Board<br />

approved installing safety<br />

improvements throughout<br />

Breezes Rd, Shortland St,<br />

Hampshire St and Rowan Ave.<br />

Upgrades including a new<br />

pedestrian crossing, speed<br />

humps, intersection upgrades,<br />

wider footpaths and bollards<br />

were trialled earlier this year,<br />

funded 90 per cent through<br />

NZ Transport Agency Waka<br />

Kotahi’s Streets for People<br />

programme.<br />

The main aim was to<br />

encourage school students from<br />

nearby Haeata Community<br />

Campus, St James School and<br />

Chisnallwood Intermediate to<br />

use active transport modes.<br />

During the trial, residents<br />

told the council they felt some<br />

intersections had been made too<br />

tight, so vehicles were having to<br />

cross the centre line and that the<br />

bollards were unattractive.<br />

After the feedback, changes<br />

were made to the final design<br />

so the intersections will now<br />

be widened to make turns less<br />

harsh, replacing the temporary<br />

bollards with permanent kerb<br />

build outs.<br />

These upgrades were approved<br />

by the board, as well as<br />

permanently installing the speed<br />

humps, platforms, and raised<br />

pedestrian crossings.<br />

Community board chair Paul<br />

McMahon said the safety of<br />

pedestrians, particularly from<br />

nearby schools, was the key<br />

consideration when making the<br />

decision to permanently upgrade<br />

the roads.<br />

“This area is busy with<br />

children playing and lots of<br />

pedestrians – making sure<br />

they’re safe is our priority,” he<br />

said.<br />

“I’m pleased we’ve gone<br />

through the robust trial process<br />

and adapted the designs both<br />

during the trial around Wainoni<br />

Park and St James School, and<br />

then again when making this<br />

permanent decision.”<br />

“The Aranui community<br />

turned out in force to share<br />

their views, and I think we<br />

have the best combination of<br />

making the streets safer for<br />

everyone and responding to their<br />

submissions,” McMahon said.<br />

Mental health mission for Tama the Tui<br />

• By Emily O’Hagan<br />

THE AUTHOR behind a new<br />

children’s book, Tama the Tui has<br />

been down for a while hopes it will<br />

encourage children to open up<br />

when they feel “sad and blue”.<br />

The book, written by Alvante<br />

Harris and illustrated by Maria<br />

Carroll, follows the journey of<br />

Tama the young tui who is feeling<br />

down but learns to share his<br />

feelings with friends and family.<br />

Harris hopes it will encourage<br />

children to share their feelings.<br />

“Not only will it give them the<br />

tools to open up, but it might even<br />

give them the tools to be able to<br />

support people when they need to.<br />

“So, if a friend does open up to<br />

them that they’re not feeling so<br />

good, they’ll have the tools they<br />

need to actually be able to help<br />

them and support them through<br />

that,” he said.<br />

It is the first book Harris has<br />

written after completing his first<br />

draft in <strong>20</strong>22.<br />

He admits mental health is<br />

a difficult topic to discuss in<br />

New Zealand, but believes it is<br />

important for kids to learn about.<br />

“One thing that’s been common<br />

throughout my life, throughout<br />

my friends and family, is people<br />

aren’t very good at opening up<br />

and talking about their feelings,”<br />

Harris said.<br />

“So I figured that if you write a<br />

book for kids, then they can learn<br />

early and get the tools they need<br />

to be able to open up when they<br />

need to.”<br />

Harris has also started an<br />

initiative to help spread his<br />

important message. For every<br />

four books he sells, he’ll donate<br />

another to an organisation,<br />

school, or mental health worker<br />

who could benefit from it.<br />

He has ideas for future stories<br />

but said his first priority will be<br />

getting Tama the Tui translated<br />

into te reo Māori.<br />

The Ritual Effect by Michael Norton<br />

The Transformative Power of Our Everyday Actions<br />

In this ground-breaking and inspiring guide, a renowned Harvard psychologist<br />

demonstrates how turning everyday habits into rituals can improve our work, our<br />

relationships and our lives. These rituals- practices are imbued with symbolic<br />

meaning. And they have the power to turn black-and-white moments into<br />

technicolour. Along the way, Norton shares stories from sporting superstars (Serena<br />

Williams always bouncing the ball five times before her first serve) Rituals can help<br />

us to forge winning teams, heal families experiencing grief and encourage us rise to<br />

challenges, big or small. Now it’s time to create yours.<br />

The Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club<br />

By Helen Simonson<br />

The Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club captures the ambitions, The<br />

Hazelbourne Ladies Motorcycle and Flying Club captures the ambitions, frustrations,<br />

and inevitable tragedies of women and men emerging from the Great War. After the<br />

war as the country prepares to celebrate its hard-won peace, Constance and the<br />

women of the club are forced to confront the fact that the freedoms they gained<br />

during the war are being revoked. With sharp humor, biting wit, and a warm heart,<br />

Simonson captures the mood of a generation facing the seismic changes brought on<br />

by war. This book is a timeless comedy of manners, refreshing as a summer breeze<br />

and bracing as the British seaside.<br />

Red zone work a fun escape from class<br />

NURTURING nature in the red<br />

zone is where you’ll find George<br />

and Emma each week.<br />

Rain or shine, the pair spend<br />

their Friday mornings mulching,<br />

uncovering hidden plants<br />

and picking up rubbish in the<br />

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.<br />

George and Emma belong to<br />

Riccarton High’s Kohanga Ako<br />

class, which is purpose built for<br />

students with special education<br />

needs.<br />

As part of the class’s work<br />

experience programme, the<br />

students collaborate with<br />

the city council parks team,<br />

volunteering their time and<br />

contributing to the red zone<br />

regeneration.<br />

Twenty-year-old George,<br />

who started volunteering due<br />

to his passion for the outdoors,<br />

has an eagle eye for spotting<br />

small pieces of rubbish to be<br />

collected or plants in need of<br />

releasing.<br />

“It’s cool to get away from<br />

the classroom and spend time<br />

outside,” George said.<br />

“I like using the parks tools to<br />

pick up rubbish, it makes it a lot<br />

easier to keep the place clean.”<br />

Eighteen-year-old Emma, on<br />

A DESERTED residential<br />

playground has been brought<br />

back to life as a sensory nature<br />

play park.<br />

Te Kohanga Taiao Sensory<br />

Nature Play Park opened last<br />

weekend on Brooker Ave in the<br />

red zone after two businesses –<br />

Hummingbird Coffee and The<br />

Green Lab – teamed up to work<br />

with the city council on the<br />

project.<br />

Nestled within restoration<br />

plantings thanks to the efforts<br />

of Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park<br />

Trust, the new park aims to<br />

serve as an educational hub and<br />

a nature haven to encourage<br />

a deeper connection with the<br />

environment.<br />

Its design encourages children<br />

to discover nature by feeling<br />

the other hand, has developed a<br />

keen love for the environment<br />

and after months of practice has<br />

mastered the art of mulching.<br />

“I search for treasure when<br />

I’m looking around too, but so<br />

New sensory park a<br />

space to inspire play<br />

different textures of leaves and<br />

wood, to smell a variety of native<br />

plant aromas, and listen for the<br />

variety in natural sounds like<br />

tapping on wood and rustling<br />

leaves.<br />

“This kind of opportunity<br />

to invent play, to utilise<br />

found materials and discover<br />

interesting spaces to play<br />

are really important for our<br />

children’s sense of independence,<br />

creativity and confidence,” said<br />

city council play advocate Louise<br />

Van Tongeren.<br />

“The play spaces are<br />

deliberately set up to inspire<br />

children to head off and explore,<br />

without being overly prescriptive<br />

about what to actually do.”<br />

Children learn through all<br />

of their senses – for some that<br />

far have just come across old<br />

concrete,” Emma said.<br />

Learning on the job is all part<br />

of the experience, as the students<br />

develop skills and experience to<br />

help them into the work force.<br />

is running and climbing and<br />

others may learn better through<br />

sensory elements, Van Tongeren<br />

said.<br />

“When we provide spaces<br />

that allow for other kinds of<br />

exploration, including calmer<br />

play experiences, we are being<br />

much more inclusive of a wider<br />

range of needs within our<br />

community.”<br />

Last year, the pair brought<br />

the full Kohanga Ako class<br />

down to help with planting<br />

season, proudly showing their<br />

classmates around the area.<br />

FREEDOM: Te Kohanga Taiao Sensory Nature Play Park has<br />

without restrictions.<br />

Once a former residential area,<br />

the park is now home to multiple<br />

wētā ‘hotels’ and ‘apartments’<br />

made at workshops held at<br />

Phillipstown Community Hub.<br />

These are warm and dry spaces<br />

where ecologically important<br />

native wētā, bees and wasps can<br />

keep safe from predators like rats<br />

and birds.<br />

The park has been designed<br />

partnership ranger Sarah<br />

Mankelow says the work is<br />

a two-way street, providing<br />

valuable experience while<br />

regenerating the area.<br />

“It’s a huge help for us having<br />

these students work in the<br />

ŌARC, and after months on<br />

site they’re experienced enough<br />

that they can occasionally work<br />

unsupervised,” Mankelow said.<br />

“Maintenance is such an<br />

important part of red zone<br />

regeneration, and we’re<br />

grateful to have a helping hand<br />

while providing workplace<br />

experience.”<br />

Maintenance days are<br />

advertised on the city council’s<br />

website, and the council is<br />

always looking for volunteers to<br />

help.<br />

to significantly increase and<br />

encourage the biodiversity of the<br />

area.<br />

A recent ‘bioblitz’ held at the<br />

site as part of the City Nature<br />

Challenge uncovered more than<br />

100 different species of plants,<br />

insects, spiders and fish in just a<br />

few hours.<br />

Council community<br />

partnership and residential<br />

redzone ranger Sarah Mankelow<br />

says the Avon Ōtākaro River<br />

corridor will be a green spine<br />

that stretches from the city to<br />

the sea.<br />

“The opportunity to restore<br />

and protect the river that runs<br />

through the heart of our city and<br />

plan ahead for climate change is<br />

a once in a lifetime opportunity.<br />

“Created for community by<br />

community, it is a beautiful<br />

space for all ages and abilities to<br />

picnic, play and enjoy.”<br />

The Avon-Ōtākaro Forest<br />

Park Trust will take on the<br />

kaitiaki role of ongoing care and<br />

maintenance of the play space.<br />

Teachers run to raise funds for sick mum<br />

• By Jessie Curran<br />

TWO TEACHERS raised more<br />

than $1000 a day for each day<br />

they pounded the pavement.<br />

Daniel Kahura and Thomas<br />

Tennent ran 21km before work<br />

for 21 days to support Kahura’s<br />

sister, Kylie Kahura, who has<br />

stage 4B Hodgkin lymphoma.<br />

Kahura and Tennent both<br />

attended and now teach at St<br />

Thomas of Canterbury College.<br />

Kylie, 35, a mother of four,<br />

received her diagnosis in <strong>20</strong>22.<br />

Despite the all-clear after<br />

chemotherapy, her cancer<br />

returned with increased<br />

aggression late last year.<br />

“Now it’s just a waiting game,”<br />

said Kylie, who awaits further<br />

scans after she completed<br />

another round of chemotherapy,<br />

blood transfusions, and a stem<br />

cell transplant.<br />

She is now enjoying spending<br />

time with her family.<br />

Kylie said she was “truly<br />

blown away” by the support<br />

from the pair and wider<br />

community.<br />

“I am just so grateful and<br />

blessed,” she said.<br />

Tennent, 33, proposed the<br />

idea to Kahura after reading<br />

a book by ultra-runner Ned<br />

Brockmann.<br />

“I was not an ultra-runner<br />

by any means, but I wanted to<br />

do something to make other<br />

people’s lives better,” he said.<br />

Supported by family, friends,<br />

FINISHED: Daniel Tennent, right, and Daniel Kahura, back left, meet Kylie Kahura and her<br />

children PepaMo’ale, Eli Mo’ale, and Faith Mo’ale at the finish line of the final stint.<br />

and the wider community, the<br />

pair trained for eight weeks<br />

before their first run on April 1.<br />

In the two months that<br />

followed, the high-school friends<br />

raised $22,000 through private<br />

donations and their Givealittle<br />

page.<br />

Kahura, 30, said he was<br />

thankful for the support and<br />

generosity of the community.<br />

“I feel super blessed for the<br />

people who have shown their<br />

love and donated to help support<br />

my family.”<br />

But going into the running<br />

challenge, the pair were not<br />

without their doubts.<br />

“I knew doing them back-toback<br />

was going to be tough,”<br />

said Kahura, who feared<br />

he would fail the challenge<br />

after he experienced serious<br />

achilles tendon and lower back<br />

problems.<br />

Tennent, who gave up many<br />

hours of sleep and time with<br />

family, even experienced a<br />

severe case of rhabdo one week<br />

after finishing the last run.<br />

Rhabdo is when muscle breaks<br />

down, releasing contents into<br />

someone who’s going through<br />

Tennent. He has now recovered.<br />

Craig Watson, head of<br />

supportive care for the Cancer<br />

Society Canterbury West Coast<br />

and Otago Southland, said the<br />

financial burden on families<br />

after diagnosis is significant.<br />

“I know of people refusing<br />

treatment because they have had<br />

to choose between travelling to<br />

treatment, or putting food on<br />

the table for their families,” said<br />

Watson.<br />

He said community support<br />

was vital to get families through<br />

a diagnosis.<br />

Kahura and Tennent said<br />

they were thankful they had<br />

experienced the of power of<br />

people.<br />

“It’s important to celebrate the<br />

small wins,” said Kahura.<br />
