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.

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 />

Thomas Tennent and Daniel<br />

Kahura ran 21km before<br />

work for 21 days to support<br />

Kahura’s sister, Kylie Kahura,<br />

who has stage 4B Hodgkin<br />

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 />

The Sockburn resident is now<br />

enjoying spending time with her<br />

family.<br />

She said she was “truly blown<br />

away” by the support from the<br />

pair and wider 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 />

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 />

Supported by family, friends,<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<br />

and generosity of the community.<br />

“I feel super blessed for the<br />

3<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<br />

breaks down, releasing contents<br />

into the bloodstream that can be<br />

life threatening if left untreated.<br />

“We made sacrifices and went<br />

through hard times to help<br />

someone who’s going through<br />

harder times than us,” said<br />

Tennent.<br />

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 />

Respect<br />

Students get insight into voyaging skills<br />

During the last week of May, 40 of<br />

our tauira went to Te Ana Marina,<br />

Whakaraupō harbour (Lyttleton)<br />

to attend the “Wayfinding for Life”<br />

Our Level 2 Early Childhood<br />

students focused on three<br />

essential aspects of a child's<br />

needs: nurturing, communication,<br />

and clothing.<br />

This project allowed them<br />

to interact and play with<br />

toddlers and young children in<br />

a supportive and comfortable<br />

setting. The experience offered<br />

significant learning opportunities,<br />

deepening their understanding of<br />

child development and care.<br />

This hands-on class highlights<br />

how practical, real-world<br />

experience can enrich students'<br />

education and better prepare<br />

them for future roles in childcare<br />

and development.<br />

programme.<br />

The students had the privilege to sail<br />

aboard the waka hourua (doublehulled<br />

waka), Hinemoana. This<br />

As part of this year's Level 1 Foods<br />

course, students need to develop a good<br />

understanding of hauora (health) and its<br />

four dimensions: taha tinana (physical),<br />

taha hinengaro (mental and emotional),<br />

taha wairua (spiritual), and taha whanau<br />

(family).<br />

They then need to reflect on how these<br />

dimensions can be affected by different<br />

activities they participate in.<br />

The key model of health we are examining<br />

is Te Whare Tapa Wha. Over the past three<br />

lessons, students have made the dough,<br />

accurately cut out the pieces of the whare,<br />

experience was courtesy<br />

of Te Toki Voyaging Trust.<br />

While on shore these<br />

students learnt how to tie<br />

a variety of knots, how<br />

and why each one was<br />

used, and identify and find<br />

these when on board.<br />

On board the waka, the<br />

students were taught<br />

how to raise and drop the<br />

rāwhara (sails), steer with<br />

the ‘hoe’ and tie down the<br />

‘kotokoto’ (boom). They<br />

were also able to explore<br />

the ‘riu’ (hull) and the paniwi<br />

carvings and motifs<br />

on the ‘kāraho’ (deck),<br />

learning the star compass,<br />

navigation, games, poetry<br />

and waiata.<br />

Kāpehu Whetū (star<br />

compass navigation) saw<br />

our tamariki fully engaged<br />

as they learned how to read each<br />

cook, and then build their whare.<br />

Students will be asked to reflect on how<br />

their involvement influenced their hauora.<br />

As those who have experienced the joy of<br />

building gingerbread houses know, things<br />

do not always go to plan, but they can<br />

always be covered in icing!<br />

Companies' support much appreciated<br />

‘whare’ on the compass.<br />

It was a sunny and calm day on the<br />

water and everyone thoroughly<br />

enjoyed themselves.<br />

Hydrotherapy pool sessions<br />

enjoyed<br />

Students from our Learning Centre<br />

are enjoying the Hydrotherapy Pool at<br />

Matatiki once a week.<br />

Rochelle, our learning assistant, joins<br />

the students every session and creates<br />

meaningful activities for them to<br />

enjoy. This includes races using floats<br />

and paddles, hopping the length of the<br />

pool, and group games such as 'Ringa-Ring-a-Roses'<br />

and 'What's the Time<br />

Mr. Wolfie?', 'Shark and Alligator', and<br />

'Sneaking up on Granny' also feature.<br />

Rochelle's enthusiasm rubs off on our<br />

students who are fully engaged and a<br />

joy to accompany.<br />

Thanks also go to learning assistants<br />

Dana and Caitlin, and Ben (youth<br />

support) who also add value to the<br />

sessions.<br />

Thank you to Wasteco for your continued support of Hornby<br />

High School over the years.<br />

A big thank you<br />

to Apollo Projects<br />

who is assisting<br />

Hornby High<br />

School financially<br />

and thus enabling<br />

our students to<br />

participate in<br />

sport to the highest level.<br />

Thank you to Caltex Hornby for supporting our<br />

Hornby High School students to play sport and<br />

achieve to the best of their ability. It is really<br />

appreciated!

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 shared his book with<br />

pupils from Our Lady of the<br />

Assumption School in Hoon Hay.<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 />

TEACHING: Alvante Harris shared his book Tama the Tui<br />

has been down for a while with pupils from Our Lady of<br />

the Assumption School who had plenty of questions for<br />

the author.<br />

PHOTOS: EMILY O’HAGAN<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 />

And the idea seems to be working.<br />

He received positive responses<br />

from pupils who clearly<br />

understood its meaning.<br />

“Always tell someone when<br />

you’re sad so then they know.<br />

“I liked that Tama was sad and<br />

then his dad said to talk about his<br />

feelings and then he felt a lot more<br />

better,” one pupil said.<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 />

Cross country success for para athletes<br />

• By Sam Coughlan<br />

A GROUP of para athletes from<br />

Papanui High School have seen<br />

huge success at the New Zealand<br />

secondary schools cross country<br />

championships at QEII Park.<br />

Cody Lamond, Adi Pathak<br />

and Bronson Ditford swept the<br />

medal places for the junior boys’<br />

2km race in the T<strong>20</strong> classification<br />

while Lee West and Lachlan<br />

Oakes placed second and third<br />

in the senior equivalent, both on<br />

Saturday. Josh Rae won the senior<br />

boys T38 2km race.<br />

The T<strong>20</strong> classification is for<br />

athletes with an intellectual<br />

disability and T38 is for those<br />

with co-ordination problems such<br />

as cerebral palsy.<br />

Papanui High sports coordinator<br />

Sarah Lamb said giving<br />

disabled athletes a platform to<br />

shine has been a focus for the<br />

school in recent years.<br />

“We always enter our athletes<br />

into the para events,” she said.<br />

“We go to all the Canterbury<br />

secondary school events that offer<br />

the para events. We’re always at<br />

those events, and sometimes we<br />

are the only school.<br />

“The attitude of the staff is that<br />

just because they have a disability,<br />

whether it be intellectual or<br />

physical, it doesn’t mean they can’t<br />

run or they can’t play basketball,<br />

and that’s what I love about the<br />

Kimi Ora unit that we have<br />

and the events that all our para<br />

athletes do.”<br />

TEAM: Lee West, Cody Lamond, Toby Paterson and Oliver<br />

King after a race at the national secondary schools cross<br />

country competition.<br />

The students’ success was<br />

recognised when the regional<br />

relay teams were selected to run<br />

on Sunday. Of the eight chosen<br />

to represent Canterbury in the<br />

para relays across the junior and<br />

senior teams, seven were Papanui<br />

High students. Both the junior<br />

and senior Canterbury para teams<br />

won their relay.<br />

And the benefits go beyond<br />

simply sporting success.<br />

“What these students get from<br />

that isn’t just about the running or<br />

whatever it is they’re competing<br />

in, it’s all the other stuff that<br />

they’ve learned, giving them<br />

confidence that they’re learning<br />

life skills,” Lamb said.<br />

“They get that feeling of being<br />

included as a team because often<br />

students with disabilities don’t<br />

get the opportunity to feel like<br />

they are part of a team and they<br />

are included in things that other<br />

children their age are doing, so<br />

that’s a massive thing for them.”<br />

Papanui High were awarded<br />

the most inclusive school award at<br />

the cross country championships.<br />

Lamb said it was down to the level<br />

of inclusiveness promoted at the<br />

school.<br />

“Here at school and in daily life,<br />

our para athletes are included in<br />

the mainstream school as much as<br />

possible.<br />

“Daniel (Wordsworth, who<br />

placed fourth in the junior boys<br />

4km), as he was passing the para<br />

athletes, he was giving them a<br />

cheer, while he was running his<br />

own race,’’ Lamb said.<br />

“He was saying ‘come on, you<br />

Hornby restaurant offers more<br />

choices and familiar favourites<br />

Thousands of Christchurch families will<br />

have fond memories of enjoying the tasty<br />

food and friendly vibe of Valentines buffet<br />

restaurant, which was located for many<br />

years in the central city.<br />

A New Zealand-wide franchise<br />

operation, the business went through many<br />

changes over the years, then with new<br />

owners taking over the company six years<br />

ago, it gained a new momentum.<br />

A third franchise was set up in Auckland,<br />

its Rotorua restaurant reopened, and in July<br />

<strong>20</strong>19, Valentines Christchurch opened at a<br />

new location – Chalmers Street, Hornby.<br />

As company director Ron Lal explains,<br />

Valentines has a rich history in Kiwi culture<br />

and they wanted to retain that feeling of<br />

nostalgia, but with some new concepts<br />

added to the mix.<br />

“We wanted to offer our customers a new<br />

experience that’s up with the times, and<br />

with a modern twist on hospitality.<br />

“Customers have a lot more choice of<br />

food now,” he says, “for example you can<br />

choose your own meat, which will be<br />

cooked individually for you. We offer a big<br />

selection of dishes, seafood and desserts,<br />

and of course there are the familiar<br />

favourites that the children love, like the<br />

chocolate fountain and an endless supply of<br />

ice-cream.<br />

“We want to wow the customers and<br />

at the same time we want to create that<br />

nostalgic Valentines feel.”<br />

The Valentines tradition of a free meal<br />

for a customer on their birthday has been<br />

upgraded to a celebratory birthday treat<br />

and, of course, with the famous birthday<br />

song being sung by staff, too. Families are<br />

also invited to take advantage of the school<br />

holiday special from time to time. During<br />

the holidays, one child under the age of<br />

eight gets a free lunch if accompanied by a<br />

full paying adult. (T’s & C’s apply.)<br />

Valentines has always been seen as a<br />

100 per cent family restaurant, a tradition<br />

that the new Valentines team is keen to<br />

continue, but Valentines is also a restaurant<br />

for everyone, from families to couples,<br />

to friends getting together to celebrate a<br />

special occasion.<br />

Situated in the heart of the Hornby<br />

shopping precinct, not only is Valentines<br />

the ideal place for people from the Hornby<br />

community to enjoy tasty food and a warm,<br />

friendly vibe, it also employs local staff,<br />

who are treated well and therefore enjoy<br />

working there and giving their customers<br />

the best possible service.<br />

Valentines is open seven days a week,<br />

from 10am till late. Outside the buffet<br />

times they also do the popular Valentines<br />

Shareboxes, which offer a range of<br />

amazing dishes.<br />

Forester still an excellent all-rounder<br />

NOW THE ELDER statesman<br />

of the Subaru NZ family, the<br />

passing years haven’t diminished<br />

the appeal of the latest generation<br />

of the iconic Forester SUV, the<br />

perfect vehicle for active Kiwi<br />

lifestyles.<br />

Versatility, practicality,<br />

advanced safety technology and<br />

its go-anywhere AWD provides<br />

owners with the peace-of-mind<br />

and confidence to explore out<br />

back and beyond.<br />

Now almost six years old, it<br />

still remains a hugely capable and<br />

roomy SUV and was good enough<br />

to win the <strong>20</strong>18 NZ Motor Writers<br />

Guild car of the year award. It<br />

was a deserved winner of this<br />

coveted title with its already much<br />

admired symmetrical AWD.<br />

Motoring with Bob Nettleton<br />

Ratings out of 10: Performance 7; Handling 7; Build Quality<br />

7; Comfort 6; Passenger and Load Space 8; Styling 6; Value<br />

for money 8; Safety – Five Star ANCAP crash rating.<br />

Overall points out of 10: 7.5<br />

Like all vehicles, even the<br />

Forester’s most affordable<br />

iteration, the Sport has gone up<br />

in price by $7k since <strong>20</strong><strong>20</strong> and is<br />

now $46,990.<br />

The next step up the model<br />

ladder is the $51,990 X-Sport with<br />

its distinctive orange exterior and<br />

cabin accents, making it the real<br />

standout in the Forester range.<br />

Carrying the luxury model<br />

mantle, and with ease, is the<br />

Premium priced at $56,990.<br />

Hybrid options are offered from<br />

$52,490, and cost just $1k extra in<br />

the Premium. For this road test<br />

we check out the price-leading<br />

Sport.<br />

If a long new vehicle warranty<br />

is important to you, the Forester<br />

comes up short with just a threeyear<br />

unlimited warranty, leaving<br />

it languishing behind most of its<br />

competitors’ new vehicle stakes,<br />

where a five-year warranty is now<br />

the norm.<br />

Under the bonnet is a new but<br />

hardly ground-breaking normally<br />

aspirated 136kW 2.5-litre motor<br />

that continues to adopt Subaru’s<br />

signature horizontally opposed<br />

4-cylinder boxer engine layout.<br />

However, the new motor offers<br />

ample rather than an abundance<br />

of performance. It doesn’t<br />

take long behind the wheel to<br />

appreciate what a smooth and<br />

refined motor it is, especially<br />

Established<br />

since 1982<br />

during open road driving.<br />

Engine noise is well muzzled,<br />

although it sounds thrashy when<br />

worked hard at higher revs, and is<br />

a motor that doesn’t really enjoy<br />

the driver bullying it past the<br />

5000rpm mark.<br />

The motor drives through a<br />

proven Lineartronic Continuously<br />

Variable Transmission is one of<br />

the best all round CVTs in the<br />

mid-sized SUV class.<br />

This Forester is the roomiest,<br />

most versatile version yet with<br />

impressive cabin comfort and<br />

extensive use of quality materials,<br />

while those getting in and out<br />

of the vehicle will appreciate the<br />

wide door openings. A larger<br />

and wider cargo area add to the<br />

vehicles appeal and load carrying<br />

credentials.<br />

The suspension, in unison<br />

with the symmetrical AWD,<br />

offers confident and reassuring<br />

road hold on a range of different<br />

surfaces typical in this neck of the<br />

motoring woods.<br />

With its balance, poise and<br />

agility, the Forester is hard to<br />

ignore if you are in the market<br />

for an excellent all-round midsized<br />

SUV that thrives in our<br />

confronting driving conditions<br />

and weather. The ride tends to<br />

become a bit fidgety over high<br />

frequency bumps, opening<br />

the door for some unwelcome<br />

suspension noise.<br />

A class leading 2<strong>20</strong>mm of<br />

ground clearance means you<br />

will be going off road in places<br />

other SUVs would not even<br />

contemplate. This, together with<br />

the Forester’s X-Mode system to<br />

manipulate the AWD, and you are<br />

in a vehicle with genuine crosscountry<br />

capabilities, that could<br />

open up new adventures in out of<br />

the way places.<br />
