Principal rejected for new Aranui school

X-Factor surprise for school – p5


Aranui High School principal John Rohs (right) did not get past first base in his bid to lead the new combined school. The Aranui Community Campus establishment board of trustees is refusing to say why Mr Rohs didn’t receive an interview for the position. Mr Rohs, who has been at Aranui High since 2006, is understood to be very disappointed. The principal for the community campus which is an amalgamation of Aranui High, Aranui Primary, Wainoni and Avondale schools is expected to be announced in the next two weeks. The selection panel met at the weekend to discuss the appointment, the Pegasus Post understands. Aranui High and the new school’s board chairwoman Haneta Pierce said: “We have not made any decisions or selections so we cannot make any comment.â€? • Turn to page 3

Nothing changes A year ago the Pegasus Post reported ongoing problems of fishing rules being flouted on the pier. As these Queen’s Birthday weekend photos show, authorities seem powerless to stop the problem. •Story, page 3

Pier problems resurface BY KYLE KNOWLES A year on and nothing has changed on the New Brighton Pier. In June 2014 the Pegasus Post reported fishing rules on the pier were being ignored. Those same rules are still being broken with public frustration flaring up again on social media over Queen’s Birthday Weekend. Photos emerged on Facebook of people breaking the rules. They were spotted fishing in the no go zone, overhead casting and using more than one rod at a time, all of which is against the city council’s rules. New Brighton community leaders are now saying enough is enough and a permanent solution needs to be found to the flouting of the rules New Brighton Business and Landowners Association manager Paul Zaanen said this has gone on for too long and it was time to knock it on the head. “Everyone has the same gripe, it can’t be that hard to put a solution in place. It has been going on for years. Frustrated people want to put solutions in place but it has gone in a roundabout between city council and community board”. The issue was raised at last week’s Burwood-Pegasus Community Board meeting with members asking for city council staff to attend the next meeting to discuss what can be done. Board member Tim Sintes said they had installed signs and barriers but it has not worked and it was

Email your thoughts in 200 words or less to time to find a better solution. “Obviously there are a few people making it a bit difficult with flouting of the rules and four or five people with three or four rods each. It’s not good enough.” Papanui resident Elaine Collins has also been put off going to the pier by fishers. Mrs Collins said she used to enjoy going to the pier to watch the fishers pulling up their catch but with so many standing in the no

fishing zone it was a horrible experience. “I actually like to see them, I just like to watch people fish. They are usually pretty good but I want it stopped, or another area for them to move to. We like to be at the front of the pier”. She said she could not get to the front of the pier on this occasion and when she asked them to move out of the no fishing zone a man threw a fish at her and her husband. Fishers breaking the rules has been an issue at the pier for years. The city council polices the rules on the pier and the Ministry for Primary Industries enforces what the fishers catch.

stationed there over the summer months to monitor the behaviour on the pier but does not during the colder months. He said the city council would respond to an increase in complaints but there is no need to currently with few complaints being received. A MPI spokesman said they did not respond to any complaints last weekend. “There were no warnings given out last weekend. MPI have issued infringement notices (instant fines) at the pier in the past. All of these have been for people taking more than the daily recreational limit for paddle crabs (which is 50).” This comes after visitor numbers on the pier dropped 36 per cent in March 2015 from March 2014.

Principal rejected


• From page 1 Mr Rohs said he was unable to discuss the matter with the Pegasus Post. In the May 18 issue of the Education Gazette, Mr Rohs featured in an article which highlighted his successes at Aranui High, including turning the perception of the school in the Pasifika community around. The article said: “Mr Rohs’ open style of leadership – and the dedication of staff – have turned this negative perception around; the Pasifika community now wholeheartedly embraces the school.” Applications for the principal of the new school closed in April. The new school is scheduled to open in early 2017.

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Correction

Last week the Pegasus Post reported community advisory group spokesman, Robert Jugovac, said there had to be a 50m pool at the new Eastern Recreation and Sports Centre and the group had already been told it would no longer be required. This was incorrect. He stated that there needed to be more capacity in the ERSC than in the current scope and that the group will find out whether it continues to exist at the next city council meeting. The Pegasus Post apologises for the error.

Work on upgrading the stormwater culvert under Shirley Rd, between Emmett St and Stapletons Rd starts today so it can handle higher flows of water. The work will be carried out by SCIRT is expected to take up to eight months to complete, and the larger culvert will make the stormwater network in the area more resilient and reduce the risk of flooding upstream. This is the first of the projects to flow out of the Land Drainage Recovery Programme and is a part of the Dudley Creek Long Term Flood Remediation Project. It will help reduce the risk of flooding to the Shirley Stream area. The construction of the Tay St drain pump station in Kensington Ave – another key project in the Dudley Creek area that will help reduce the risk of flooding –

Mary came into the bureau because she was feeling lonely and isolated at home with her young son. She had moved to Christchurch with her husband, who was a tradesman. He had found work as part of the Christchurch rebuild. The excitement of moving to a new country, organising a place to live, buying a car had all been taken care of within the first few weeks of arriving. Moving to New Zealand was a daunting process. However, after the newness of everything faded, Mary found herself at home alone for long periods of time while her husband was working. She started to experience feelings of homesickness and isolation. Developing new social supports and networks can seem daunting at first.

New bin trial bid for seaside community BY KYLE KNOWLES

A city councillor is leading the charge to fix the little things in New Brighton. Burwood-Pegasus ward representative Glenn Livingstone says getting a new rubbish bin trial and the maintenance crews working together is something that needs to happen in the seaside suburb. He said the city is not one size fits all in terms of rubbish bins and New Brighton has unique issues which need to be addressed, starting with a possible trial of a different type of bin. “One size doesn’t fit all. Rubbish bins for coastal communities, as opposed to those in other areas, need to be able to deal with on-shore winds, seagulls, fish and chip papers and other litter from those enjoying the beach. This part of the city hosts the most number of events and we need to be able to cater for them.” He would like a trial to take place with new rubbish bins installed that were not as easy for seagulls to get into. Cr Livingstone said the city council staff are still investigating whether a trial can actually go ahead. “We have tender requirements, so we need to see whether we can undertake a trial.”

Forward Foundation: Letting girls At 19, Maddy Surie started the Forward Foundation to help girls achieve their sporting goals. Three years later, Forward Foundation ambassadors are working to coach girls around the country. She spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about rugby knockouts, pet food trends and getting pizza in China So why did you start the Forward Foundation? Actually, the idea started because someone told me I couldn’t do it. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t like to be told no! I played rugby all through high school, and the boys always got the better fields and better coaches. But it wasn’t until I was removed from playing and started looking in, that you realise how difficult it is and how unmotivated it is for the girls to be treated like that. So I thought maybe there’s a gap I can fill. And it’s not just rugby anymore, is it? No, we realised through our success that we could appeal to all minority sports, rugby wasn’t the only one that needed this kind of thing. We’ve now got 20 ambassadors, and they play all kinds of sport. One girl does artistic roller skating, and one does waka ama boat racing, so some are pretty different, but it’s their dream. When the girls apply to become ambassadors we asked them to say what they hoped to achieve for the sport, and it was this girl’s dream

to make waka ama an Olympic sport. They’re very ambitious girls. A lot of people have great plans and ideas, but many just never happen. What gave you the drive to actually do it? I’ve heard everyone has a million-dollar idea in their life but most people never act on it. All my life I’ve always been a doer. I think putting something into action is the most incredible feeling. And I’m lucky because I’ve also been surrounded by so many great mentors and great friends who are also doing fantastic things in the community. And my family has always supported me. So where are you at the moment? It’s the first year of the ambassador programme, so we’re still just trialling things at the moment.

I view it as an entrepreneurial charity, so you have to operate like a start-up as you get it going, and adapt to different situations like a start-up. We started just in Canterbury, but as it has spread nationwide we’re still just trying to give girls opportunities they would otherwise miss out on, just filling those gaps. The goal is to help girls get out and do things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do, and ultimately I’d love to get some scholarships going too.

Is this something you do as a job? No, I have a full-time job at a pet food company called K9 Natural, where I’m a product development officer. I know it seems completely random, but everything I have learnt here I’ve been able to take over to the foundation, so I’m really lucky to have this job and my growth here has been exponential. I believe charities should be run like a business. There’s a really fantastic talk on the TED

site, which I love. It’s about how, if charities operated like a business, how much more successful they would be and how much more they could contribute to the community. Pet food also came up in your postgraduate study, right? Yes, that was the subject of my dissertation for my honours. That’s actually how I got the job here at K9. I had a fantastic supervisor who placed me here for two weeks in a research position. After my two weeks, K9 offered me a marketing job, so I ended up working full time and studying full time and running the foundation too. It was a pretty full plate, but very rewarding. So did you learn anything interesting in your study of pet food? I did. I was studying pet food purchasing, and there were two really big trends. One is when people treat their pets as part of the family, so you see things like people buying birthday presents for their pet and spending a bit more than they probably should on them. The second trend is humanisation, where you see things like human food trends pouring over into trends for pets. I think New Zealanders usually see their pet as a pet, but they do tend to see them as part of the family.

achieve ambitious goals in sport Tell me about your trip to China? Sure. That was through a course run through Canterbury University. We went over to Gongshang University, in Hangzhou, in what was sort of a university city there. There were 14 universities in the city, and about a quarter of a million university students living there. So we were teaching there in return for our board. I had one group I taught in particular which stood out to me. I was obviously speaking English to them, and encouraging them to talk. One girl asked what my favourite food was, and I said pizza. I don’t even know why, because it’s not actually my favourite food, but it’s the first thing that popped into my head. They said oh, we have a Pizza Hut here, so they took us to Pizza Hut for dinner. It was amazing because they don’t have much money at all but they were paying New Zealand prices for pizza. I begged them to let me pay, but they wouldn’t let me, even when one girl’s card declined. To be honest it wasn’t much like the pizza from home, but it was such a good example of how strong their culture and values are. When I left they made me this huge scrapbook, even though they barely knew me. It was a lifechanging experience. Do you think you could ever expand the foundation to other countries, like China? It’s definitely a possibility, but

TEAMWORK: Maddy began coaching the Forward Foundation girls’ rugby team after she got sick and was unable to play herself. I think we need to set up a good base here first. I’ve learnt you’ve got to set up the foundation, before you can build on it. You can’t try to expand too fast. How much of a role has sport played in your own life? It’s been huge. At school I was a sport nut, everything revolved around it. I was once playing rugby and someone pulled me backward, and I hit my head and I woke up on the sidelines. I had been playing since I was about six, but when that happened my parents said no more rugby, you’re done, choose another sport. I refused to stop, and eventually they came around to the idea

nothing would stop me playing. My first question at the Christchurch Girls’ High School open day was do you have a rugby team? Fortunately they did, or I wouldn’t have gone. Do you still play? I actually don’t anymore. I got very unwell at the start of the season with something called pulmonary embolism, which is where you get clots in your lungs. My case was very severe. I still can’t forget the doctor’s face when he told me I was lucky to be alive. I got really into coaching then because I couldn’t play. I could play again now, but I actually find it really rewarding, coaching. They

keep me young. If you get any free time, what do you like to do with it? Make time to catch up with those friends who really have a positive impact on me. I love TED, and I went to the TEDxChristchurch conference last year. It was one of those days that keeps you buzzing for weeks afterward. I have a thing for being around people doing great things. I also love the Port Hills. I love everything about it. It’s just a 10 minute drive from where I live, but you feel like you’ve stepped out into an isolated heaven. I make an effort to go there a few times a week for a run around the hills or


a walk with friends. A lot of people say Christchurch is too conservative to be a base for new things, and eventually you need to move to Auckland or Wellington. Do you think that’s true? Not at all. I can definitely see myself staying in Christchurch. I don’t agree at all with that, especially when we’ve seen so much going on here after the earthquakes. For example, the Epic Centre is completely based on innovation. I think Christchurch is the best place in the country right now to launch a start up or base new companies. Where do you see yourself in the long term? In 10 or so years I’ll definitely be running my own company. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was really young. And hopefully I’ll still be giving back to the community through the foundation. Where do you see the future of the foundation? I definitely see it growing, and the long-term goal has always been to provide scholarships. I think I would like to one day be just an adviser and a trustee, and help other people who want to make a difference. It’s about getting the right people on the bus. I need to get the right people on board, and then the world is my oyster. And the best way to get in touch? Definitely through our website –

BY JENNIFER EDER We are proud to present to the community our monthly review of events. Our Monday Golden Oldie Films for May are: The Sea Chase, starring John Wayne,1955, on the 8th Deep In My Heart, 1954, on the 15th; Great Expectations, 1946, on the 22nd; and The Bell for Adana, 1945, on the 29th. Come early for a cuppa and a chat, and the films start at 1.30pm. Admission is a $2 donation. Our volunteer historian, Quintin Sumner, has been presenting speeches to various groups about New Brighton’s colourful past. During May, he entertained the Union Church with stories about the unusual by-laws in New Brighton in days gone by. The audience was highly bemused to hear of officers measuring the length of swimming costumes on the beach and sending daring women home to change. Mr Sumner plans to update his presentations with visual accompaniments as demand has increased. The volunteers meet on the first Sunday of every month at 3pm to discuss projects and share ideas. If you’d like to help, please come along.

Did you know: A New Brighton woman was the most famous horsewoman of the pioneer days? Bella Button was born in 1863 and the youngest child on her father’s horse farm. She was able to tame horses no other trainer could get close to, and won provincial trotting races. However, in 1896, the newlyformed New Zealand Trotting Association ruled that women could not participate in races, in spite of members arguing that Ms Button could teach the male drivers a thing or two. This rule stood until 1979. She continued horse training at her Burwood home, and in 1907, was awarded the Champion Lady Rider of New Zealand trophy. In her 40s, she married a much younger man named Augustus, a farmer from Rolleston. She reportedly had to fight off bailiffs with a stockwhip when they came to collect her husband’s debts. She lived in New Brighton until her death in 1921. Find out more about famous jockeys of the east at the New Brighton Museum. The museum is open from 10am-noon Mondays, and every other day 1-3pm. We take bookings for school groups and community functions.


WINNERS: Marian College’s Pasifika leaders Ceryse Scott, Simone Faitaua, year 12, and Samantha Faitua, year 13, who were recognised at the recent Pasifika regional awards. Ceryse and Simone both received emerging Pasifika leader awards, while Samantha was named top academic student for Marian and runner-up Pasifika female for supreme academic achievement in Canterbury secondary schools. The awards were based on Samantha’s NCEA level 2 results, in which she attained an excellence endorsement. Samantha plans to commence a double degree in law and history at the Canterbury University next year.


Remember metre/heater rule


I’ve often talked about the metre/ heater rule. That’s a mantra that the Fire Service preach about not having anything combustible closer than a metre from a heater. The reasoning behind this was perfectly illustrated last Friday at the Linwood end of Gloucester St when the occupant of a property returned home at lunch-time to find the flat full of smoke and a towel, left drying over a heater, on fire.


Welcome to our Open Day Events Personalised tours available on these dates: Monday, 8 June: 11.30am - 1.00pm Tuesday, 23 June: 9.30am - 11.00am Tuesday, 28 July: 9.30am - 11.00am Tours finish with a morning/afternoon tea with the Principal to answer any questions. There will also be a representative from the Aranui Community Campus Establishment Board and a display of the magnificent new School to be started soon. Find out all about the new school while you visit Aranui High. To book a place or for any further information, please contact Principal’s Secretary - or phone 388 7083 extn 813.

Firstly the sheer luck in the timing of going home prevented a fully involved house fire. But leaving the towel where it was while out was an invitation to lose everything. This is the time of year that we get called to this type of incident and it is so unnecessary. Follow the metre/heater rule and it wont happen to you. I’ve also gone on ad nauseam about cooking fires in the kitchen. We were close to a real disaster in Innes Rd at Mairehau on Tuesday evening when the occupant of

a house tried to carry a burning pot of oil outside. She dropped it. By some absolute fluke she didn’t get burnt but the kitchen caught on fire and the St Albans crew in breathing apparatus put the fire out with hose reels. The possibility here of serious injury was immense. Don’t touch a burning pot. Put the lid, or an oven tray, or a bread board or a damp tea towel over it. Then leave it there and call us. That might save some serious pain.

Teens sparring for a fight BY KYLE KNOWLES Two of A-Town Boxing Club’s young fighters grew up wanting to be the the next Ryan Nelsen and Richie McCaw but now look up to Muhammad Ali. Junior Acero, 15, and Kaleb Hauraki, 13, have their sights set on becoming champion boxers. They both won their divisions at the South Island and North Island Golden Gloves in the last two weeks. Unfortunately for Junior he was unopposed on both occasions and won by default but Kaleb won in a unanimous decision at the South Island competition. Junior said he only got into boxing when his coach, Jamie Roberts, held a programme at his primary school three years ago. “I joined that programme then came down to the gym to try it out and took to it pretty good so I started competitively, it’s good fun.” He played football before moving to boxing and had dreams of playing in the Premier League in England. Now Junior has aspirations to make it to boxing’s Junior World Championships in Russia later this year. “I want to do well in that then go to the Commonwealth and Olympic Games. It’ll be a good experience to see other skills from

around the world.” Unfortunately, there is no guarantee Junior will make it to the World Championships as New Zealand Boxing does not want to send him to the competition. Kaleb has been boxing for more than three years and was persuaded to head along by a friend and has kept coming back ever since. He used to play rugby but has enjoyed the change.


“I didn’t really get the ball much in rugby and boxing is a one man sport. It’s fun and I get to travel”. Both are Shirley Boys’ students and are now training for the Australian Golden Gloves to be held in August. The two juniors will now have a competition size ring to train in as the club has been able to purchase a new one after its old one was stolen last year.

� � i t����


The ring which cost close to $14,000 to purchase was paid for by grants the club received. Roberts said it was a relief to get it and they can now hire it out to help fundraise for the two young boxers to travel for fights. Junior was hoping to get a fight in Timaru this weekend (June 13) before they both travel to Wellington later in the month to fight at the Naenae Boxing Academy.

Learning to swim offers health benefits for life


wimming is a popular and universal form of exercise that offers a wide range of health benefits, both physical and mental, and is an activity you can enjoy throughout your life. As a low-impact exercise, swimming is an ideal workout because it requires you to move your whole body against the resistance of the water. It improves and maintains cardiovascular fitness, builds muscle strength, helps maintain a healthy weight and improves flexibility, coordination, balance and posture. For those who would like to take up swimming for both health and enjoyment,


the Bromley-based McMillan’s Aquatic Centre (MACs) caters for everyone – from those who enjoy swimming regularly, even competitively, to those people who have never really mastered the skill and don’t feel confident in the water, but would like to learn. The centre, with its 20-metre, five-lane, heated indoor pool, has been owned and operated by Blair and Karen McMillan since 2009. Blair and his team of qualified tutors offer lessons for both children and adults from Monday to Friday, during the school terms.

Children’s lessons are from 3pm to 6pm, and adults’ from 1pm to 3pm and 6pm to 8pm. The adults’ lessons have proven to be so popular that the centre has added additional times, 7am to 9.30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. One of the key aspects of the centre, Karen says, is that they focus on building strong relationships with families. “We take a holistic approach, and our staff get to know the families that come here really well. Many of the staff have been with the centre for quite some time so there’s a continuity of staff for our clients. And they are all committed to the style of teaching we offer.” Lessons are $13.50. Bookings and payments are made at the start of each term, with 10 lessons, one per week, costing $135. Small classes mean that swimmers get a lot of personal attention, Karen says. Lane hire is available for regular swimmers at $5.50 for 45 minutes. The casual rate is $7. A 10 per cent discount is offered for family groups of three or more. There are never more than two swimmers booked per lane. Providing a secure, private environment for swimmers, from beginners to pros, McMillan’s Aquatic Centre is located on the corner of Wickham and Francella streets (off Dyers Road). The carpark is off Francella Street. Phone 332 4617.

Hearty, healthy winter warmers Leafy greens soup

Serves 4

Ingredients 2 bunches Leafy greens, we used cavolo nero and choy sum but greens such as spinach, kale or silverbeet would be good too 1 Tbsp Olive oil 2 stalks Celery, sliced 3 Spring onions, chopped 2 cloves Garlic, crushed 3 cups Chicken stock 1 bunch Coriander, choose a

Brilliant brassica soup

As a lunch, or even a dinner option, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a recipe more nourishing. Soups are a wonderful way of increasing your vegetable consumption now that all those salad recipes are becoming less appealing as the weather cools down. Ingredients 2 heads Broccoli, roughly

large bunch 1 handful Parsley 1 Lime, or two Directions Separate the leaves and stems from the greens. Roughly chop the stems. In a saucepan heat olive oil. Add celery, spring onions and garlic and cook gently, stirring often until soft but not coloured. Add the stems of the greens, plus 1 cup chopped coriander stems and continue to cook, about chopped, including stalks 2 Tbsp Coconut oil 1 Cauliflower, heads and stems roughly chopped 2 stalks Celery, chopped finely 1 Onion, chopped 4 cups Vegetable stock 1 handful Parsley, chopped 1 handful Mint, chopped 1 can Coconut milk Directions In a large saucepan melt coconut oil and cook onion and celery on

5 minutes. Add 1 cup of hot chicken stock, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add 2 more cups of hot stock, the leafy greens and a big handful of fresh coriander and parsley leaves. Simmer a further 5 minutes until everything is soft. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, add the juice of a lime or 2, and cool for 10 minutes. Working in batches, puree to a smooth soup in the blender. Reheat to serve.

Directions Place stock, water and vegetables in a large saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add meat to saucepan and simmer for another 10 minutes, skimming any scum from the surface. Use a ladle to transfer about 1/2 cup of the broth to a bowl. Stir the miso into the broth until dissolved, then return the mixture to the saucepan and stir to combine. Don’t allow soup to boil. Turn heat off, cover saucepan and leave for 2 minutes. Serve miso soup in bowls, and scatter some spring onion on top.

Vaccinations, hygiene can ward off flu We’re heading into the peak flu season and, for adults, coming down with the flu can translate to missed work and complications. Children risk missing school and, for younger children, complications related to the flu can be severe — sometimes fatal. So, how do you ward off the flu in your home to ensure everyone enjoys a healthy, safe and productive winter? It’s easier than you think if you follow these prevention tips.

reduces the risk of germ transmission.

Disinfect target areas

Disinfect commonly used items in your home such as telephones, remote controls, doorknobs and handles.

Don’t let your health habits slip if you contract the flu

A commonly held flu myth is that a person can get the flu only once during flu season. There are several different strain types of the flu virus, so it is possible to contract a different strain during the same season. Another common myth is that you can get the flu from the flu vaccine. The flu vaccine can’t give you the flu because it’s made with a weakened or inactivated virus or no virus at all.

Get vaccinated

Vaccination is considered the best preventive measure against the flu. In the event that you do contract the flu, talk with your health-care provider about starting antiviral treatment to help treat your flu illness.

Stock up ahead of time

Get plenty of sleep

Defending against the flu requires the right equipment. Make sure your home is full of tissues, hand soap, sanitiser and paper towels. Having these items in place can help prevent germs from spreading.

Review hand-washing techniques

Properly washing your hands is an effective way to prevent contracting and spreading the flu. When washing your hands, make sure to

One of the best ways to ward off or to recover from the flu is to ensure you are well-rested. Getting plenty of sleep gives your body time to recover and to combat illness, so avoid that urge to be a night owl. People of every age can contract the flu, and it is especially dangerous among seniors and children, so to help protect yourself and your family follow the tips above and talk to your health-care provider or pharmacist to find out if the flu shot is right for you.
