Car park charge plan for Clifton Tce

TIGHT: Getting around the tight corner and around the parked cars, which could become a residents only bay can cause headaches for vehicles. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Caitlin Miles A CONTROVERSIAL plan to make car owners pay to park on Clifton Tce has been delayed after mixed responses from residents. The city council proposed to put four ‘residents only’ parking spots on Clifton Tce following concerns over difficulty finding a park on the narrow road. The residents would have to pay a yearly fee to be able to park in the currently free spots, which

one resident said was ridiculous. A lot of the road has yellow lines, with only small areas for cars to park, and many residents do not have off-street car parking, relying on finding a spot within reasonable walking distance. There are currently four car parks below number 11 Clifton Tce near a tight hairpin corner which anyone can use, but the city council wants to restrict the parking to residents only. Only 10 residents responded,

with five submitters against the proposal and five supporting the idea. Justin Prain has lived on Clifton Tce for 12 years and is against the proposal. He said finding a car park had never been too much of a problem and involving the city council would be “a waste of time”. “There’s just no need for the city council to get involved and start policing it,” he said. •Turn to page 8

WELL DONE Tom Denman (page 1) who was named Canterbury lifeguard of the year at the weekend. Tom was one of six awards the Sumner club scooped on the night, so a deserved night celebrating – I hope! In March, Denman was part of a surf lifesaving crew that helped to recover the body of Maureen Imrie, the elderly woman who died when the car her husband was driving left Main Rd and crashed into the sea. The 26-year-old also serves the community in other ways; he is in the police. Also on page 1, a Mexican standoff over parking on tight Clifton Tce. The city council is considering charging residents for an off-street park. They surveyed residents for views – five are against the idea; five are for it. Toss a coin? – Barry Clarke

News Bid to get jetty under way „„ By Caitlin Miles CAMPAIGNERS FOR a floating jetty at Naval Point are making a bid for $220,000 to get the project under way. The Naval Point boat safety group has asked the city council to include the amount in the draft Annual Plan. With $100,000 the group has already in the bank from private investors, it will enable them to create a fixed access jetty, a 12m gangway and a 20m floating jetty located on the south side of the current boat ramp at Naval Point. James That is the first Ensor stage of a major jetty development the group says is vitally needed in Lyttelton. For 24 years the group has been campaigning for a safer place for boats to be launched and retrieved from, that could be used in rough weather if need be. Naval Point boat safety member James Ensor said the Naval Point Club and other ramps in the harbour “are totally unsuitable” in southerly and southwesterly​conditions and the floating jetty is designed to be used

during almost all conditions. In 1993 proposals were developed for improved facilities at Naval Point, which led to the commencement of construction

of the Magazine Bay Marina in 2000. However, during construction, a southerly storm destroyed the offshore floating structures and the development ceased. Further upgrades the group want include removing a section of the current rock breakwater, a new 150m floating device to be used as a new breakwater device, removing existing piles and a possible floating berth for

Group members believe the floating jetty will also complement the development the city council are doing at Naval Point, looking to improve and upgrade Magazine Bay, Lyttelton Recreation Reserve and the public boat ramp.

News In Brief

Playground upgrade delayed „„ By Caitlin Miles UPGRADES TO Scarborough Park playground won’t be done this year as planned. The city council budgeted $150,000 for the improvements, which were scheduled for this year. The city council has pushed funding for the playground out until 2019/2020. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said this was due to the Annual Plan process Darrell and budget Latham restraints. Upgrades have been a long time coming – it was created in the 1960s. The city council identified the need to improve the equipment last year. The city council asked for input into what the community would like to see in the park in terms of upgrades at the end of last year so a plan could be made for public consultation, but now that plan will not be presented to the community until 2019 because of the funding change.

However, the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board requested the funding be reinstated for this year because of the poor state of the playground. Community board member Darrell Latham said they requested the funding be reinstated because the improvements are important to the community. “Our (community) board

has asked for the funding to be brought back because we feel like this is a priority,” Dr Latham said. Mr Rutledge said depending on the confirmation of the budget in the Annual Plan process upgrades may be done to the whole of the park, including footpaths, park furniture, landscaping, drainage and upgrading equipment. The city council rates the

LAND SWAP CONSULTATION Public consultation on the land swap between Redcliffs Park and Redcliffs School will start on Monday. The consultation will be carried out to allow people to have their say on changing the reserve status of Redcliffs Park to the old school site, so the school can be built on the park. The Crown already owns 1ha of the 1.9ha park and the city council owns the remainder. The Ministry would have to pay market value for the city council-owned land if the sale goes ahead. Submission period will be open until June 26. ROAD CLOSURES The installation of ultra-fast broadband in a section of Lyttelton means several roads will be closed for the next month while the work is carried out. College Rd, Stevensons Steep, Crossland, Foster, Randolph and Reserve Tces will be closed until June 20 for contractors to carry out the work.

Scarborough Reserve as one of the top-10 playgrounds across the city. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the Scarborough Park playground needs upgrades now? Do you think the community board should wait until a full park upgrade can be done? Send your opinion to caitlin.miles@

GOVERNORS BAY RESERVE Submissions on the city council’s plans to redevelop the Governors Bay Community Centre and Pool Reserve closes on Monday. A tree hut, bike track and skate park could be key features in the redevelopment. It involves improving the current bike pump track, building a half pipe and a tree hut, along with more play equipment. Go to https://ccc. consultations/show/25

Sumner scoop awards •From page 1 “I was physically on the water. It was a horrible experience but it was nice to be able to help get the family some closure,” Denman said yesterday. Now the 26-year-old has been recognised for his deeds on the water, winning the lifeguard of the year award at the Canterbury Surf Life Saving awards of excellence on Saturday night But it is not only on the water that Denman serves the community. He has just completed his first year as a police officer. Denman’s award was one of six for the Sumner club. Other individual winners were Jonelle Quane (coach of the year), Seb Johnson (sportsperson of the year), Derek Shanks (surf official of the year), Kate Suter (volunteer of the year). Taylors Mistake also picked up two awards. Craig Jamieson (Te Onepoto – junior surf coaching) and William Jamieson (rookie lifeguard of the year). Denman been a lifeguard at Sumner since 2006. Until joining the police last year he had worked as a full-time lifeguard on opposite sides of the globe, spending four summers working in Poole, England. “It was great spending sum-

mers on the beach but I reached a point where I felt it was time to settle in one spot. Working with the police has some similarities to patrolling the beach in terms of getting outside and creating a positive influence,” said Denman. Lifeguard of the year recognises the outstanding contribution to the delivery and development of drowning prevention services for surf lifesaving. Later in the year Denman will travel to Auckland with fellow club member Kate Suter, who was named volunteer of the year at the weekend. The volunteer of the year was awarded to Suter. Denman and

Suter will go on to be finalists in the national Surf Life Saving New Zealand Awards of Excellence, being held in Auckland in September. The celebration of surf lifesaving took place at the Sixty6 venue at Christchurch Casino and included Taylors Mistake, Sumner, South Brighton, New Brighton, North Beach, Waimairi, Spencer Park and Waikuku surf lifesaving clubs. Every year, regional awards of excellence ceremonies are held around the country to officially recognise members for their hard work and dedication to surf lifesaving in New Zealand.

Golf club celebrates opening of new rooms LIFE MEMBER Richard Barnett had the honour of opening the Charteris Bay Golf’s new clubhouse. The clubhouse was badly damaged in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and needed to be rebuilt. Mr Barnett joined the club in 1947 and has been an active member ever since. There were 100 other members that joined Mr Barnett at the opening, hosted by the club’s captain Rob Phillips and president Allister Cotter. The original clubhouse was built in 1913. Members of the club and wider community worked together to get the money needed to rebuild. Warren Sheddan was an important part of the project, offering to design the building and manage the project at no cost to the club. Golf club member Warren Griffiths said the new clubhouse is a great redevelopment for the club. “This is a fantastic asset

Tunnel gets safety upgrade

Wilson departs community house

WORK ON fire safety improvements and reducing possible lengthy closures to Lyttelton Tunnel is set to begin. The system is designed to control and contain a fire until fire services reach the scene. McConnell Dowell has been awarded the contract for the $28.7 million project, which is the largest undertaken at the tunnel since it opened in 1964. Transport minister Simon Bridges said since the Canterbury earthquakes the tunnel has provided the most direct freight access to the town and port. “A tunnel closure because of a fire could have a serious economic impact on Christchurch, Canterbury and the South Island. This deluge system once installed will reduce this risk and improve fire safety for tunnel users,” Mr Bridges said. The project involves the construction of two reservoirs, two pump stations, and the installation of 9km of pipe work and 2,400 fire sprinkler nozzles throughout the tunnel. Most work will be conducted in the ducts above the tunnel with minimal disruption to traffic. Some night-time tunnel closures and single-lane operations will be required. The project is expected to be complete by December 2018.

„„ By Caitlin Miles THE MANAGER of Lyttelton Community House and two other staff have been made redundant due to funding cuts. Christine Wilson was the manager of the centre and had worked there for a decade, but due to a lack of funding the centre had to reduce its hours and let staff go to be able to keep running – on limited services. Ms Wilson is also the chairwoman of the Banks Peninsula Community Board and she said while it was sad to leave she had no bad feelings about her departure. “I commend our board, they had to make a tough decision but it’s all good,” Ms Wilson said. The trust was established in 2008 and was instrumental to the community following the February 22, 2011, earthquake, offering support and help for those in need. She said while it’s sad she will no

longer be involved directly with the community house she is glad services will be able to continue. “It’s sad, it’s been a long time but that’s life. I’m thrilled it will be continuing,” Ms Wilson said. Special farewells were held to thank Ms Wilson for her commitment and involvement with the organisation. Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson gave a presentation at one of those, she spoke about her commitment and ability to help those in need. “She could detect a need in the community and give that support,” Ms Dyson said. Ms Wilson said she will now be able to spend more of her time focused on her community board responsibilities. GRATITUDE: During an afternoon tea to thank Ms Wilson for her work with the community house she was presented with a cake.

Your Local Views Needs of school support staff has 10 full-time teaching staff and seven teaching assistants. The relatively high ratio recognises the value of support staff in a busy classroom environment. They free-up teachers to focus on teaching and help maintain student and classroom well-being. Support staff have a vital role in ensuring that children reach their potential. At Waltham, teacher assistant Jan worked with different groups of three or four children to practice their reading and writing, ensure they grasped phonetics, and test their spelling. This helps ensure no child gets left behind. In another class, Neil focused on children with behavioural issues, enabling them to participate in a mainstream environment without disrupting other students’ learning. I watched Kelly take a group of seven students through exercises to calculate the perimeter of different sized rectangles. The absolute joy and sense of achievement one boy expressed when he got the correct answer was

infectious. In Budget 2016, the National Government froze school operations grants. This has made it more difficult for schools to make ends meet in terms of running costs. It’s meant many schools lack the funds to pay enough teacher aide hours for their students’ learning and support needs. It also means that support staff endure lower wages and insecure employment. They only get paid for contact hours at the school, not for preparation time or during school holidays, in spite of being unable to find short-term casual work during school holidays. Budget 2017 needs to provide more funding for school operations grants. This would enable support staff to get fairer pay, more secure work hours and increased allowances for the specialist tasks they do and skills they bring to our schools. We need to invest in our children and their education so they thrive.

Readers respond to last week’s article in Bay Harbour News about where a skate park should go in Sumner and the wider area Rosemary Smart – I believe very strongly that a skate park should not be located in a residential area. The noise is quite significant.

Learn the rules before you go on the water IN 2016, Research New Zealand conducted a national boating survey and the results showed that Canterbury has 16 per cent of New Zealand’s recreational boaties, making us the second highest in New Zealand behind Auckland (with 24 per cent). In real numbers, around 148,800 of you are participating in some form of recreational boating in Canterbury. This comes as no surprise given the fact that our beautiful region not only has a long coastline, but also many rivers and lakes that are enjoyed by everybody from paddle boarders, rowers, and kayakers through to jet and power boat users. The reason I am bringing this information to your attention is, out of the 148,800 recreational boat users out there, I’d be interested to know how many of you have completed a boating safety or maintenance course … and I would be surprised if it’s even as high as 10 per cent. I am more than happy to be proved wrong. So here is the challenge for winter – check out the websites below and get yourself onto one of the courses offered. The basic boating safety course is the ‘day skipper’, and this can be completed either online in your own time or by attending a two-day course. For those of you who have a VHF radio in the boat, it is advisable to do the Maritime Radio Operator’s Course and then you will be sweet to go.

There are other courses such as Boatmaster, Boating Maintenance and many more. All are worthwhile. It’s not uncommon when I am out and about for boaties to tell me they do not know the rules. If you were stopped for speeding in your car and you told the police that you did not know the speed limit, the chances of police letting you off without a ticket is pretty remote. It is up to you to know what the speed limit is on the road, and the same applies on the water. It is your responsibility to know the rules and comply with them. One difference between driving on the road and being a recreational boatie is that as a car driver you have had to pass a driving test to ensure you have learnt the road rules. You do not require a licence to operate a boat (unless it is for commercial gain) but you do need to remember it is a privilege to use a boat without any restriction except age*. The onus is on you to not abuse this privilege and to know the rules. So, my advice to you is get yourself on a boating course if you have not done so already. • nz/courses.      •http://waynemiddleton. *You must be 15 years or older to operate a power boat capable of more than 10 knots, including a jet ski, unless there is a supervisor aged 15 or over who is capable of taking immediate control.

This week Green MP Eugenie Sage writes about her recent trip back to school and what she learned about support staff and their needs Recently I went back to school for a day. I’ve visited schools before but not spent a whole day sitting in on classes and talking to students and staff. The day was part of teacher union Te Riru Roa/ NZEI’s “Walking in the shoes of a school support staff member” initiative. The union has invited MPs to shadow teacher assistants, librarians, administration officers and other school support staff to learn more about their role. After a day at Waltham Primary School I was in awe of the commitment, dedication and skills of teachers and support staff. With 230 pupils, Waltham

SUCCESS: Our Lady Star of the Sea School year 5-6 football team were the best on the day winning all 10 games they played.

ARRIVED: A group of 20 pupils went to Samoa to learn more about the country and to give pupils there items they had collected.

Learning experience in Samoa for Sumner pupils PUPILS FROM Sumner School had some incredible experiences when they visited Samoa. On May 13, a group of 20 pupils travelled to Samoa for an overseas learning experience. The main purpose of the trip was to learn more about Samoan language, traditions, customs and to experience what going to school is like in a different environment to New Zealand. The group visited the islands of Upolu and Savai’i. Pupils Pearl O’Brien and Coco Barham said there were a lot of highlights during the trip. Pearl and Coco said some included swimming with turtles and snorkelling in the coral reefs, but the best part was St Mary’s School in Apia.

The pair said they had an incredible welcome from the staff and students and also got to meet their pen pals, who they had been writing to in the months leading up to the visit. Over the past couple of months, the pupils were tasked with filling a container with different items for the children in Samoa. The Sumner Rugby Football Club also got on board, they donated rugby gear, including boots, uniforms and balls for the Sumner School to take with them. Redcliffs School also helped to fill the container, putting furniture and stationery into the container. The pupils hope to return to Samoa for another learning trip.

EXPERIENCE: The pupils visited various schools during their time in Samoa.

Sports teams from Our Lady Star of the Sea School had a lot of success at a recent Catholic schools competition. The school’s year 5-8 football and netball teams showed off their talent when they competed in the annual Canterbury Catholic Schools winter tournament. The year 5 and six football team won all 10 of the games they played, while the year 7 and 8 won nine out of 10 and the year 5-8 netball teams played eight and won four.

COMPETITIVE: Year 7-8 football team won nine of the 10 games.

PLAY: The year 5-8 netball teams played eight games and won four.

SAFE: Our Lady Star of the Sea School new entrants Niamh Savage, Noah Shepherdson, Navaeh Anderson, George Lamb, Jack Jones, and Indie Giles used art to bring awareness to the start of NZ Bullying Free Week, which runs from May 22 to May 26.

Author visits school POET AND author James Norcliffe paid a visit to the pupils at Diamond Harbour School. Over two days, year 7 and 8 pupils had a writers’ workshop with the local author, who shared with them some skills and creative workshops. One of the pupils, Molly, said it was a great workshop to be involved in. “I think it was a really great opportunity for kids to show their writing abilities and express their creativity and also to find out what kind of things you can do with writing,” Molly said. She said it was an enjoyable

Linwood College





2018 Student Leaders: 1st Row: Vai Mariner, Crystal Mehlhopt, Jenna Hollis, Leeah Mullany, Sarah Moana Wooff-Smyth 2nd Row: Eden Pettigrew, Adonai Schwenke, Anaru Gray, Cole Barrie 3rd Row: Havana Aaifou, Thomas McHutchison, Sapana Kharal, William Paulden, Sean Robertson-Wright, Makayla Austin

Enrolling now for 2018 Message from the Principal Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. There is considerably increased community interest in Linwood College. People are hearing about our school’s re-development and they want to know more. I am often asked at various community events, “Why Linwood?” More and more people are keen to know what Linwood College can offer their children. There are three clear answers to this question. Firstly, our school nurtures personal excellence by providing varied opportunities to meet individual needs. At Linwood College learning success and personal wellbeing are inseparable. All Linwood learners can expect to be challenged, enriched and supported to reach personal excellence. Learning is personalised for a ‘love to learn’ culture so that each learning stage builds upon one another to form an integrated, personalised pathway.

Secondly, Linwood provides a safe, caring physical and emotional environment with positive systems and processes to support students and communicate with families. Well-being is at the heart of our school. Finally, Linwood College embraces diversity and inclusiveness. We see this as reflective of both New Zealand society today and of New Zealand’s global future. Linwood learners have a global understanding. These three answers about our school can be summarised in one phrase: Pathways to Excellence: learning and social well-being. In this season of school open nights I am holding regular appointments for families keen to learn more about Linwood College and meet me personally. Please phone the school office, phone 9820100, to book in a time. Nga mihi nui to our community as the positive activity of the year continues. I am always keen to meet people so if any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything, please contact the office to arrange a time for this to occur. My door is open. Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki-Principal

Congratulations - Rise in NCEA Results In early May our school received a letter from the Minister of Education, the Honourable Hekia Parata, congratulating the Board of Trustees and wider school

on the significant improvements in our 2016 NECA results. Students, staff and the Board are all pleased to receive this positive acknowledgement.

Stepping into the Future - the shape of things to come

Masterplanning is underway for our total school rebuild on our site with the physical work beginning in 2018. The time frame is three years, so that the College can function sensibly over the rebuild period. Responding to the clear community voice on Linwood College’s future direction, we will have purpose-built general and specialist facilities for classroom learning, sports and

cultural pursuits. Our classrooms will have the flexibility of size to suit the student and the nature of the learning occurring. Our facilities will centre on learner-autonomy for personalised success and future-focussed employability and leadership skills. A Linwood learner is nationally and globally prepared.

Duke of Edinburgh Expedition Seventeen students from Linwood College deployed on a 3-day, 62 kilometre journey with the Joshua Foundation to complete their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award (DOEHA) Expedition. The expedition took place in challenging conditions through Motukarara, Little River, then through the Kaituna Valley to the Packhorse Hut and down to Gebbies Pass - with the last part of the expedition over the Banks Peninsula to Godley Heads and terminating at Taylors’ Mistake Beach.

Under the guidance of Chris Allan from the Joshua Foundation, the students developed their leadership knowledge and forged strong personal relationships with each other with great results. Chris Allan and the Joshua Foundation has worked with Linwood College over the past nine years serving our school community with hundreds of students successfully completing the various awards.

Families roll up for Dessert This month the Linwood College Hospitality Department held a dessert restaurant over two nights. Year 13 hospitality students worked hard during Term 1, trialling mini desserts for the degustation event with Year 12 hospitality students trained in table service. The evenings would not have been as successful as they were, without the hard work and planning by former Linwood College student Navneet Narayan. These evenings are deservedly attracting more and more attention.

Power Up East! Pasifika students from any school are all invited to participate in this programme involving tutoring, mentoring and engagement for our Pasifika Community. This is based at Linwood College every Tuesday from 5pm to 6.50pm. Come along with your families to the Linwood College School Hall. Groups separate into ECE, primary and secondary sectors and parents will have their own session too! Spread the word. Let’s Power Up for Pasifika success! David Siumu was the youngest contestant in his section during the recent SPACPAC Speech Competition. Titi Tomasi (right) came third in the Senior Samoan speech category.

Fuel Up Fundraiser Our local Z garage on Linwood Avenue are running the ‘Good in the Hood’ project. Please support the local Alternative

Education provider KAP (Kimihia Adventure Programme) by fueling up there and popping the token in to support KAP.

Three teams at top of table „„ By Gordon Findlater A NIL-ALL draw with defending Mainland Premier League champions Cashmere Technical has kept Ferrymead Bays at the top of the table. Ferrymead Bays lead a threehorse race midway through the Mainland Premier League season. Bays are on 23 points after 10 games with Cashmere on 22. Coastal Spirit are also in the mix and are now just one point behind Cashmere following their 1-0 win over Nomads United. Playing at Ferrymead Park, the home side played with the strong breeze behind them in them in the first half. However, couldn’t use it to their advantage as the sides went to the break at 0-0. In the second half goalkeeper Adam Heighfield was the star of the show for Bays. Late in the game he made a full stretch save to deny Cashmere defender Tom Schwarz’s hit from long range. He also produced another gem to deny Stu Kelly from inside the 18-yard-box in the final stages. Their next test comes against FC Twenty 11 at Avonhead Park on Saturday.

Big swells for surfers „„ By Andrew King SUMNER’S Caspar McCormick won the longboard section of the Canterbury scholastic surf championships in cold, testing conditions on Sunday. Held during a southerly flow that swept across New Brighton’s beach, McCormick’s fancy footwork saw him win the category while Little River’s Daisy Cooper placed second. Cooper was also the top ranked under-14 surfer in the girls’ mixed age section where she placed fourth. Sumner surfers had a good showing at the competition with Estella Hungerford winning the girl’s mixed age section, Jordan Sparrow placing second in the under-18

boys’ section, Angus Mossman third and Thomas Harcourt fourth. Sparrow was unlucky to not take the top spot after leading up until the final 5min before Christchurch Boys’ High School student Sam Sands wrestled it from him. Finn Brokenshire, also from Sumner, placed third in the under-16 boys and Tim Gould, of Redcliffs, placed fourth in the under-14 boys. The event is a trial for the Canterbury scholastic surf team with a training squad expected to be named on June 11 with an eye on the national scholastic surf championships in Gisborne in October.

Tense battle for Sumner in blustery conditions „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER’S HOPES of a top-six finish in the first round of the Hawkins Cup are still alive following a gritty 11-10 win over Shirley at St Leonards Square. Coming into Saturday’s match nothing was required if Sumner’s top-six hopes were to stay alive. They looked like a hungry team early, jumping out to an 8-0 lead within the opening 5min courtesy of a Nik Cumming penalty and No. 8 Dylan Nel brushing off Shirley’s defence to score his fifth try this season. With the wind wreaking havoc on the thought of any intricate back play, the game quickly became a battle of the forwards and the score wouldn’t

change before half-time. “We realised pretty quickly that it was going to be an armwrestle,” said Sumner coach Martin Dodgson. Shirley came out firing in the second half and cut Sumner’s advantage to one before a second penalty from Cumming made it 11-7. It was nail-biting stuff for Sumner fans in the dying stages of the game. A Shirley penalty made it 11-10 to Sumner before Cumming’s restart went out on the full giving Shirley a scrum on half-way. Sumner were then marched back 10m and gave Shirley a 40m kick to take the lead. It was unsuccessful. However, Cumming once again put the ball out on the full,

this time from the 22m dropout. However, Sumner’s defence held firm and earned a penalty to kill off the game. “It was easily our best defensive effort of the season. We made seven low tackles against Burnside two weeks ago, 29 against High School Old Boys the week after and against Shirley we made 53,” said Dodgson. With just three round-robin games remain in the Hawkins Cup before the 12-team competition in cut into a top and bottom six. Sumner will fancy their chances of making the top six. Their final three games are against Linwood, Belfast and Marist Albion, who all sit below them in the competition standings.

DO YOU NEED A CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT? It’s a common question. Most clients are referred to chartered accountants by their existing clients and professional / personal networks. Advertising may have some effect - but generally it’s minor. The reason for this is that the role of a chartered accountant is a very trusted one and like all service roles is based on interpersonal relationships. Let’s face it,you will be sharing your personal financial information with your accountant, so you need to be able to trust them. What is a Chartered Accountant? In reality anyone can call themselves an accountant - you do not need to have any qualifications or experience to work as an “accountant”. In contrast to call yourself a Chartered Accountant you need to have a tertiary level accountancy qualification, the correct types of work experience, pass post graduate exams set by Chartered Accountants Australia / New Zealand, meet on going professional development requirements and meet ethical and technical standards. All client contact is bound by confidentiality. What does a Chartered Accountant do? Most people think that accountants only prepare financial statements and tax returns. That is referred to as Compliance in accountancy speak and does

form a part of the needs of most clients. The other part of the role is usually termed as BAS or Business Advisory Services. BAS can encompass a huge range of skills from Business Planning and Cash flow Forecasting to Succession planning and Development of your Businesses Core Values. BAS adds value to clients i.e. it can help make their business and personal lives more successful, Compliance can be seen as a requirement imposed by tax law so is often viewed in less favourable terms. Who Needs a Chartered Accountant? The majority of salary and wage earners do not require an accountant as their tax is deducted at source via the PAYE system. If you have other forms of income that are not taxed at source such as business, rental or investment income then you should consider using a Chartered Accountant to assist you meeting your legal requirements and to help you build success. At Craig Roberts & Associates we have in excess of a decade of experience with business success across Christchurch and throughout New Zealand. We are a small firm who can give you the time and commitment you need. We enjoy helping you and your business grow and succeed.
