Ministry rejected hospital car park building

Train victim amputee faces challenges Morgan Jones was left blind and an amputee after a horrific accident – but he is still taking on dance competitions and adventure challenges „„ By Gabrielle Stuart MORGAN JONES was six, travelling by train through Kaikoura when he fell through a safety rail and onto the tracks below. He was left with horrific injuries – blind, with his right leg amputated and one side of his body partially paralysed. Tranz Rail was taken to court over the accident, but was cleared of criminal negligence. A settlement was reached with Mr Jones’ family outside court. Now 29, he has been able to do more than he thought was possible - including competing in a dance competition and taking on an adventure trip. •Turn to page 7

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart A PLAN for a 700-space car park near Christchurch Hospital was rejected two years ago, because a Ministry of Health group decided there was “not expected demand for it.” But the Canterbury District Health Board and NZ Nurses Organisation disagreed at the time, saying car parks would be needed. It comes as parking problems around the hospital have reached crisis level, with patients missing appointments and at least two hospital staff assaulted this year while walking to their cars. The Ministry of Health wrote to the CDHB in June, 2015, saying it was taking over responsibility for earthquake rebuild projects, including “proposed car parking projects”. It said they would become the responsibility of the Governmentappointed Hospital Redevelopment Partnership Group, and contracts for the projects would be managed by the Ministry of Health. In December, 2015, the HRPG commissioned Deloitte to carry out a review of car parking need around Christchurch Hospital. It looked at a range of options including building a 700-space car parking building, but rejected the idea because it said “there is not expected demand for it in the next five years and future demand and supply beyond that is uncertain.” •Turn to page 5

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK MORGAN JONES was sixyears-old when he fell through a safety rail on a train to the tracks below. He lost his sight, a limb and was partially paralysed. He is now 29 and has won a dance competition, rock climbed and earned a University degree. But there is one challenge he cannot get past at the moment – getting a job. He is taking it in his stride, concentrating his efforts on other goals, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to see him employed. Hopefully, we will have a encouraging update soon. Hagley Park and cricket are two words that can bring up a lot of emotion. When reporter Bridget Rutherford started working on the article on page 3, there was chatter in the newsroom between cricket diehards and those who could see Hands of Hagley’s concerns. Do you have a strong opinion regarding this? Send your views to bridget.rutherford@ starmedia.kiwi. – Shelley Robinson

At a Glance THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

TAKE CARE WITH TOADSTOOLS

This week in history saw the first championship cycle meeting, at Hagley Park on April 17, 1880. On the same day in 1983 Dr Robert Runcie, the Archbishop of Canterbury, visited the city. On April 19, 1873, the Christchurch Golf Club was formed. The first course was in Hagley Park. April 20, 1849, Captain Thomas (in a letter to Sir George Grey) reveals that he has chosen the present site of Christchurch for the new settlement – in spite of the fact that both the Nelson and Otago colonists had rejected it in 1841 and 1844 respectively. On April 20, 1938, the first Inter-Dominion trotting event in New Zealand was held at Addington Raceway. Originally scheduled for Easter, the contest was postponed because of flooding throughout the city. Further flooding after the first races delayed the finals until May 4. On April 22, 1869, the Duke of Edinburgh visited. It was New Zealand’s first visit by a royal. On April 23, 1895, the regular Lyttelton to Wellington ferry service started.

THere is a shroom boom in Christchurch as fungi flourish with the recent rain. A long period of drought followed by a wet autumn has sparked a spectacular showing of varied mushroom and other fungal species. City council botanist Trevor Partridge said the rain had created ideal growing conditions and toadstools and mushrooms were popping up in large numbers. He said a number were poisonous, so they should not be eaten.

Fines for Hagley Oval breaches

„„ By Bridget Rutherford CANTERBURY CRICKET has continued to breach its resource consent at Hagley Oval since it was controversially turned into an international cricket ground. Figures released to The Star show Canterbury Cricket has been issued nine infringement notices since October 2014, and charged $1800 in fines. Most of them were for failure to pack up equipment used for matches, such as portaloos, television scaffolding and perimeter fencing, within a day of the match. There were two notices issued in 2014, four in 2015 – two of which no action was taken – and three last year. Since October 2014, the city council had received 39 complaints, with the most recent on February 25. They included difficulties with traffic management during matches, the late removal of equipment, and concerns the pavilion car parks were closed. Hands off Hagley spokesman Martin Meehan said the city council was spending about $1 million on upgrades for the cricket season. He could not understand why when the consent continued to be breached. The upgrades included $40,000 on sun shades, $125,000 on aluminium temporary steps, a $105,000 service vehicle roadway to stop the ground from getting muddy, and embank-

In Brief ANZAC DAY SERVICES A number of Anzac Day commemoration services will be held across the city on Tuesday. Turn to pages 26, 28 and 29 to see where your local Anzac Day service will be held, and details for the dawn service in Cranmer Square, and Christchurch Citizens’ Service in Latimer Square. EAST FRAME BEGINS Construction of the East Frame residential development has begun. A sod-turning ceremony was held yesterday to kick start the construction of the first 20 terrace homes in the development known as ‘superlot 4’, on the corner of Hereford St and Latimer Square. Following that, construction would begin on two other sites within the development. Fletcher Living is building the 900-home East Frame, in partnership with Otakaro Limited.

NOT OUT: Initially Hands off Hagley’s Martin Meehan tried to hit the Hagley Oval development out of the park, but now he is trying to stop more city council money going into it.

ment repairs of $20,000. Mr Meehan said a city council staff member told the group the removable sight screens cost $460,000. He said Canterbury and New Zealand Cricket should pay for upgrades. “The only people that benefit is cricket, and the rest of us pick up the cost,” he said. “It is done, you can’t lift it up

[Hagley Oval] and take it away. But the continuing spend is beyond a joke.” Canterbury Cricket chief executive Lee Germon said it paid up to $80,000 to lease the oval. “We certainly pay our way, it’s up to the council how they administer that.” Mr Germon said the number of breaches was reducing each year.

HISTORIC COTTAGE OPENS Stoddart Cottage is the oldest building in Diamond Harbour and after receiving extensive repair work due to earthquake damage it reopened yesterday. The cottage was closed for a year while city council contractors completed work on the heritage listed building. The cottage is used partially as a gallery and partially as a community space for people to explore. The Stoddart Cottage Trust chairwoman Paula Smith hopes that now it is reopened it will attract more people from the city.

Sometimes there were health and safety issues which slowed the packing away of equipment, such as poor weather, he said. This summer Hagley Oval would host a test and two one day internationals between the Black Caps and West Indies, and a test and one-dayer against England, as well as other community cricket matches.

CHASE ABANDONED Dangerous driving and high speeds gave police no choice but to abandon a pursuit in Yaldhurst early on Wednesday morning. Police attempted to pull over the stolen Toyota station wagon on Old West Coast Rd at about 1.40am. The driver refused to stop and led police on a “dangerous” pursuit which was abandoned shortly after it started. The car had been stolen earlier on Tuesday night from Strowan, a police communications spokeswoman said.

Richie statue commissioned „„ By Shannon Gillies LYTTELTON ARTIST Mark Whyte has been comissioned to create a bronze statue of Richie McCaw, which will stand in Kurow. Mr Whyte was selected by the Kurow Museum Committee to create their tribute to the former

All Black captain, who grew up in the area. The statue project was announced last August. Mr Whyte’s work included the statue of Charles Upham in Amberley and the bronze sled dog sculpture outside Lyttelton Library.

Mr Whyte said the assignment was ‘’right up my alley’’. ‘’People like Richie are the sort of role models that should have [statues]. Not only is he probably our most successful All Black in history, but he’s just a hell of a nice guy as well. I’m

No charges after attack „„ By Andrew King NO CHARGES have been laid after a central city attack that left a woman in an induced coma with a crushed windpipe. On February 25, Amelia Rayner, 29, was punched in the throat when her and her boyfriend were leaving the Electric Avenue festival at Hagley Park about 11pm. While in hospital she had an operation to have a metal plate inserted into her throat to help her breathe. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Worner told The Star police have not laid any

charges yet in relation to the attack, but would not say why. “I cannot go into specifics of that case,” he said. Police have interviewed a man believed to have caused her injury. Ms Rayner’s father Gary Rayner said he would not comment on the outcome. He said he has engaged a lawyer. “It wasn’t going anywhere so we have got a lawyer to follow up just what is happening,” he said. Mr Rayner said Amelia was recovering well and

was soon thinking about returning to work. He said her voice is coming back but she is still “a bit jumpy”. “The physical stuff is the easy part, the mental part is difficult to move past,” he said. It is alleged Ms Rayner and her boyfriend were leaving the festival when they got into an altercation with four men. The men allegedly assaulted her boyfriend, and when she stepped in to help, was punched in the throat crushing her trachea.

Hospital car park rejected Man killed paragliding •From page 1 It concluded existing car parking in the area was enough to meet demand in the short and medium-term. Canterbury District Health Board chief executive David Meates confirmed to The Star he wrote to the Ministry of Health disputing the projection. But he refused to talk about what he wrote or the Government’s response afterward, saying he did not want to “criticise another agency”. Health board member Andrew Dickerson said the CDHB had been left with its hands tied because responsibility for car park decisions had been taken away. “There was considerable concern that Deloitte had significantly underestimated the future demand,” he said. NZ Nurses Organisation organiser Lynley Mulrine said the need for more parking near the hospital had been raised regularly for at least a decade, but the Government was “not listening”. “The DHB is in a position where their employees are unsafe and our members are unsafe because the Ministry won’t recognise the problem, so if they’re not going to make decisions

about parking then they need to let somebody else make them.” HRPG chairman Evan Davies did not respond to questions from The Star. But Minister of Health Jonathan Coleman said he still had confidence in the HRPG. “I acknowledge there are shortterm pressures on parking. I support the measures taken by the DHB and other local authorities to address these,” he said. “I am confident that in the long-term car parking will be catered for in a new car parking building which the HRPG is

looking for a private developer to deliver, and a car park in front of the new Acute Services Building.” Mr Meates wrote to the Ministry of Health again this month requesting a review of car parking around the hospital. But the CDHB would not release a copy of the letter until it had been put to the health board members at a meeting today. The CDHB, city council and Otakaro Ltd held a joint meeting this month to discuss the parking problems, and plan to work together on long-term solutions. • Free city parking, pg 12

James Maaka, a New Zealand Defence Force soldier, died on Tuesday while paragliding in the Port Hills. He was 25. Deputy chief of army Brigadier Christopher Parsons said in a statement yesterday that Mr Maaka came from a strong military family. “He was a fine soldier, avid paraglider and his regiment knew him as a good bloke,” he said. Mr Maaka was a serving member of the 2nd Engineer Regiment based in Burnham. He was awarded the NZ General Service Medal, the NZ Operational Service Medal, the Timor-Leste Solidarity Medal, the NZ Defence Service Medal and the NZ General Service Medal (Solomon Islands). Emergency services were called to the scene on Summit Rd at about 11.40am on Tuesday. Mr Maaka died after crashing into a road barrier near the

Vandals no match for Hatch

Morgan faces challenges

„„ By Ashleigh Monk WHEN A cold, half-hatched swan egg was taken to the SPCA last week, there wasn’t much hope for its survival. But the cygnet named Hatch has defied the odds. He was found in a deserted nest at Westlake Reserve in Halswell after vandals terrorised his family. His parents and two siblings managed to escape, but Hatch was left behind until a passerby found him and rushed him into the SPCA. “Only Hatch’s beak was peeking out of the egg and [the person who found him] was very concerned,” SPCA Canterbury spokesperson Anna King said. “We did our best to keep the egg warm and took it in our animal ambulance to our friends at the Wildlife Hospital to hatch.” Once Hatch came out of his egg, staff at the South Island Wildlife Hospital tried to reunite him with his family – but the attempt was unsuccessful. Veterinarian Pauline Howard says Hatch was stomped when he tried to join his family, so he would have to be hand-raised before it was decided what to do with him.

•From page 1 He took home a trophy from the NZ World Latin Dance Cup competition last month – although he won by default as the only dancer in the category. He also went to the Give It A Go! youth amputee camp in New Plymouth this month, where he conquered rock climbing, abseiling and a giant rope course. “I tell people I’m not scared of heights, I’m just scared of the dark,” he said. But Mr Jones has struggled to get a job. He used technology like a “talking computer” to complete a Bachelor of Science at Canterbury University in 2013, hoping to work in conservation. “I always loved and wanted to protect the environment,” he said. But in spite of several placements, he could not get work. He then completed a medical terminology paper – but once he finished the course, he said no companies would hire him. “I’d be happy to do anything, but even supermarket jobs I can’t do,” he said. Instead he is concentrating on his dancing, and creating a sanctuary for native birds in his backyard.

PEEKABOO: With just his beak poking out of an egg, Hatch was taken to the SPCA where he was given little chance of survival.

“Ideally, we would release him, but there is a female swan at Willowbank and he could go in as a mate for her,” she said. Ms Howard said Hatch would be moved around different foster homes so he didn’t get too used to being in one place. “The big thing is we don’t want him to bond too much with people, because then he thinks he’s a person rather than a swan. “We do things like have

The city council sets aside $763,000 every year to use for heritage incentive grants. It also gives out central city landmark heritage grants for larger projects. Figures released to The Star show the city council has given $5,725,557 from its heritage incentive grant Anna fund over the Crighton last six years. On top of that, it gave $10,942,500 in landmark heritage grants, and $2,650,000 to restoring the Arts Centre buildings. The money is used to restore and repair buildings with heritage status, listed under the district plan. They are subject to a covenant being put on the property so it protects the building for the future.

DAMAGED: McLean’s Mansion got a $1.9million central city landmark heritage grant so it can be turned it into an art gallery.

Owners can apply for up to 50 per cent of the cost of eligible work and it could include the fees of registered architects, engineers and quantity surveyors. They are paid after the work has been finished. Some of the buildings that got heritage incentive grants included the Nurse Maude Clinic in Merivale, which got $345,000,

New Regent St buildings and a number of residential homes. Addington’s Woods Mill buildings have been given two grants, but the first one of $884,750 went back into the fund because it was not used. A new developer has received $900,000 to turn the buildings into a commercial and retail complex.

POPPY FUNERALS

Refreshingly different... A fresh new face to funerals has stepped on the scene in the form of Poppy Funerals. The family owned and operated business has a refreshingly different approach to funerals. In the past, the only options available to families were those instructed by the funeral directors. This is not how Poppy Funerals feels funeral arrangements should be. “Families are best placed to know the right way to farewell their loved one. It’s not our place to tell them how they should grieve. When a family calls us to arrange funerals for their special person, we do what they want. If they want a traditional mournful funeral we will do that. But if they want a BBQ in the park, or a party to say good bye – we will do that too. Funerals have changed over the years, and it’s about time we as funeral directors changed with the times too. Our staff try to be bright and cheerful. There is enough sadness around when a person passes. We want to have the celebration of their life shine through the sadness.” It is Funeral Directors Jazz and Steve’s intention to change the world we live in, one funeral at a time. “We are a normal down to earth family, and I know when my time comes I want a down to earth sort of person there to help my family through.” Poppy Funerals are focused on family’s needs, offering services from Direct Cremation to full Celebration of Life burials or cremations, as well as a DIY option where by Poppy Funerals will do as much or as little as you want. Not being owned by multi-national or large corporations they have the flexibility to actually meet your needs.

‘money well spent’ Central city landmark heritage grants have included buildings such as McLean’s Mansion, which received $1.9 million, $1.7 million for Christchurch Club, and the former Public Trust building owners Yani got $1.9 million Johanson last month to save the building. Christchurch Heritage Trust chairwoman Anna Crighton said

every dollar spent on heritage protection was “a dollar well spent”. She said there were strict rules on what building’s qualified for grants. “Otherwise it’s just ratepayer money just being thrown away.” She said there were many projects that needed money following the February 2011 earthquake, but for her, heritage buildings were a priority. “Once you’ve lost it, it’s gone forever.”

City councillor Yani Johanson said following the earthquakes, the heritage incentive grant scheme became more important. “Heritage became absolutely critical post-quake.” City councillor Jamie Gough said restoring heritage buildings was difficult because it was time consuming and costly. The scheme made it a bit easier for owners to preserve the buildings, and it showed the city valued its historic fabric, he said.

Wesley Mauafu

Passion for helping Pasifika community Wesley Mauafu is passionate about helping Pasifika young people, whether it’s fighting high suicide rates or inspiring them to have a voice in politics. Last week he was invited to Parliament to receive a New Zealand Youth Award for his work. He spoke to Gabrielle Stuart Why is the issue of suicide so important to you personally? It started four years ago, when I did my first suicide prevention training. I went as a fresh-faced young guy, and to be honest, I was so oblivious to the horrific statistics of my own Pasifika young people. They have so much potential and so much to give to the community as a whole, so when I found out we were perishing and struggling with our well-being it hit home a lot. From that day, every time I have seen a programme or initiative aimed at well-being, I am always keen to put my hand up and say yes, let’s do this. Our group, PYLET, is the council for

LEADER: Wesley Mauafu chaired the first meeting of PULSE – Pasifika United to Lead Suicide Prevention Education – last year.

Pacific Youth Leadership and Transformation. Through this, we are seriously saving Pasifika young people’s lives. That’s the motivation for me. Do you approach things dif-

ferently when you’re working specifically with Pasifika youth? I definitely think we do. It’s little things like understanding our values. We’re brought up in our family environment with

fa’aaloalo, which is the Samoan word for respect, and tautua, which means service. So service comes into the community work that we do, and respect means respecting our elders.

Understanding our cultural values helps us work better with Pasifika youth. The Pasifika community in Christchurch is quite tight-knit, right? Is that a strength, when you’re fighting something like suicide? Well, we originally held three suicide prevention workshops and something we found was, yes, we do have a very strong community, but within Pacific cultures there are also a lot of stigmas we had to try to get rid of before we could talk about the actual issues. They were things like we should sweep it under the rug, because if we talk to young people about suicide it might plant the seed of suicide in their mind. We also have to bring down the stigma that you should feel ashamed if someone in your family has taken their own life. We need to communicate with our young people and our elders that it’s okay to talk about it and there is no shame in it, because we are all going through hard times. The next question is, how do you talk to people about it? That’s what we’re trying now to impart to our Pasifika community.

and battling suicide earns youth award That must be particularly important since the earthquakes? Definitely. We’re over-represented when it comes to things like mental health problems and depression. A lot of our Pasifika young people and community live on the east side, and a lot of us in the red zone felt we were treated unfairly – not myself personally, but it’s something I hear a lot. It took a long time for the Canterbury rebuild to make its way to the east side, for our roads to be fixed, for our houses to be fixed. The feeling was, does our city really care about us, when it looked like the more well-off on the other side of the city were being taken care of first. So what was the experience at Parliament like? It was fantastic. We met with National MP Nuk Korako and went to the gallery in Parliament to watch David Cunliffe’s valedictory speech, which was awesome. It was actually my second time going to Parliament, but the first time going with my mum and my sister, which was fantastic to do. The best thing was that child-like feeling, when I looked at my mum and thought, yes, my mum thinks I’m cool. In terms of the community work I do, I guess my

friends and family know what I do, but I don’t really talk in depth about it. For my family, the only time they really hear what I do is when I get an award, so it’s pretty special. And I’m a ‘mumma’s boy’, so I just think if my mum thinks I’m cool, I’m doing something right in my life. If it was your second time at Parliament, when was the first? I was part of a group presenting to the Standing Orders Select Committee, which sets the rules

that dictate how Parliament runs. We went there saying if you want more young people to vote and be involved in democracy, you need to make changes. They were things like better utilisation of Parliament TV and being able to use your cellphones in Parliament. And tell me a bit about your life and interests outside of this work? To be honest, this takes a lot of my life, and I really enjoy doing

this. But I do have other interests. I play rugby for the Sumner division 1 team. I’ve always loved rugby. And I’m an engineering student at Canterbury University, currently second year in the civil engineering department. Hopefully, I should be done next year. So you’re planning a career as an engineer? I still haven’t fully figured out what kind of engineering I want to do, but long term, yes, I want to be a civil engineer. Short term,

I would love to travel, maybe use the fact I can play rugby to see the world, if I could play for a European team somewhere. I’d like to widen my experience and then bring that back home. But short and long term, I want to keep working for my Pasifika young people, in whatever capacity I’m in. And for the average person on the street, is there anything we can do day-to-day to help fight suicide and mental illness? It seems like such an airy-fairy answer, but just a smile and a bit of kindness goes a long way. Having the courage to step out in faith and ask someone if they are okay, even if you don’t know them, whether it’s an outlier in a crowd, or if it’s a friend who seems to be acting a tiny bit different. These are signs, invitations we call them, to go and talk to them. Ask them, are you okay? But at the same time, don’t expect to be the answer and save their life, just be there to listen and to guide them to an actual professional or counsellor. Don’t feel the burden, because if something does go wrong it’s not your fault. Whatever you can give to a person, your time or your presence, is enough.

Free weekend car parks in central city mooted „„ By Bridget Rutherford FREE CAR parking in the weekends is being investigated in a bid to bring more people back into the central city. The city council is looking into whether free car parking could be offered on the weekends in the central city as an enticement. City council transport operations manager Aaron Haymes said it was considering temporary free parking, but it had not made a final decision. “The car parks would be council controlled parks but the locations are still under consideration.” He said it would make a decision within the next

few weeks after consultation with businesses and other parking stakeholders. There had been substantial private investment in car parking buildings, so it was important not to undermine that, he said. City councillor Deon Swiggs asked staff to

look into it. “It’s about getting people back to the central city to try it out. If they have a good experience, they will come back again.” Central City Business Association chairman Brendan Chase said the idea came up at a summit the association held and it would be good for business. He said another idea was if someone bought something at a shop or cafe, they could be reimbursed for their car parking fee, or could get a free ride home on public transport. More people were returning to the central city, and it was only going to improve, he said.

Students study life on Mars „„ By Ashleigh Monk WHEN THE time comes to pack our bags and head for Mars, Christchurch youths will be wellprepared. The Ara Institute of Canterbury is hosting a series of workshops to teach high school students how to get to Mars, and how to survive when they’re there. And though it may raise a few eyebrows, living on Mars is not that far off according to National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NASA predicts a crew, called Daedalus, will make the nine-month trip to Mars in the 2030s to establish shelter, food and water sources for future newcomers.

So in New Zealand’s July holidays, Ara will be teaching high school students all the necessary knowledge on how to be a good Mars resident. At 96 per cent carbon dioxide and just one per cent oxygen, the air on Mars is unbreathable, so

the Daedalus crew will use electrolosis to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. They will also establish a hospitable shelter to protect humans from the temperature extremes Mars displays, along with hydroponic farming and other methods to grow food.

An Australian pilot study discovered people with severe gluten allergies who were also inRichard fected with Gearry hookworms did not have reactions when they ate gluten. A group of Christchurch researchers have just received a $20,000 from the Lottery Grants Board to start a similar trial. They hope to find out exactly how the hookworms prevent the allergic reactions, so they can turn that substance into a pill. Otago University gastroenterology professor Richard Gearry said

War brewing over memorial relocation „„ By Bridget Rutherford A MEMORIAL commemorating Cantabrians who died in World War 1 is embroiled in the Christ Church Cathedral saga – and the central city RSA has had enough. Christchurch Memorial RSA is about to begin discussions with the city council to have the cenotaph moved to Cranmer Square before it deteriorates any further. The Citizens’ War Memorial currently sits on Anglican Diocese land next to the Cathedral, but it is the responsibility of the city council. It has been fenced off since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. RSA president Pete Dawson said they wanted it moved in time for Armistice Day commemorations next year – which will mark a century since World War 1 ended. “If we rely on the Government and the church to get action here, we’ll be waiting forever,” he said. “We’re going to be engaging with the council shortly.” He said Cathedral Square was not suitable to hold the Anzac Day dawn service anymore

because it was too small. Cranmer Square, where the commemorations are now held, had significance because it was a military camp during the Great War. The diocese is allowed to request the cenotaph be moved, but it would need to get resource consent.

A Church Property Trust spokesman said it would respect any decision agreed by the city council and other stakeholders about the cenotaph’s future. Paul O’Connor, who is helping with the moving project, said the cenotaph was “in the shadow of that shambles of a Cathedral.” “It’s the wider Canterbury

memorial to all of those who lost their lives and we’re treating it poorly.” City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said there was no budget to move the cenotaph, and it had no plans to do so at this stage. •Watch the video at www.star.kiwi

Viewpoint Trail will be an asset CANTABRIANS will soon be able to enjoy a riverside trail running along the banks of the Avon River through the residential red zone. The 12km transitional Avon Trail will open in stages from spring and will allow Cantabrians and city visitors to walk, run or cycle from Barbadoes St in the central city to Pages Rd in New Brighton. The whole trail will be completed and open by early next year. Construction of the first section of Avon Trail will start this month from Retreat Rd/Avonside Dr through to the Gayhurst Rd Bridge. The trail will be prepared at the same time as the upgrade of the temporary stop banks. By smoothing the top of the stop banks and adding a fine gravel surface, the trail will be suitable for a wide range of uses. The Avon-Otakoro Network is leading the project, and community volunteers will help prepare some sections of the trail. Regenerate Christchurch has been helping co-ordinate the work, and funding has been provided by the Ministry of Social Development to the Avon-Otakoro Network.

Gerry Brownlee

Now that the former red zone has mostly been cleared and grassed, we can see the potential of the river corridor. The Avon Trail is an opportunity for the public to explore this area, and I encourage everyone to do so. It is an exciting asset for Christ-

church, and an innovative way to get Cantabrians moving from the city to the sea. The trail is great news for our city, and will help to promote the regeneration of New Brighton. It will allow everyone easy access to the lower Avon and surrounding red zone. The transitional trail will remain in use for at least two years, as the larger regeneration operation unfolds around it. Further opportunities for a permanent connection from the city to the sea will be explored later. This is an important area of regeneration, and will impact Christchurch’s future. It is the first step in creating a peoplefriendly, green space in our city. •Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration •Megan Woods, p23

Last week The Star reported the city council was looking at setting up an online hub that had information for residents and visitors about Christchurch as part of the Smart Cities programme. Peter Parr, of Southbridge – At last I’ve come to understand that the city council believes, and rightly so, that the public is stupid, ignorant, unobservant and gullible. We’re to get new technologies with an online hub where we can get all the information we need about Christchurch (The Star April 13). It’s all in the wording, ‘info we need’ not what we may actually want – like what the city council is planning, actually doing or spends our rates on. The council wrote to me “red arrow protections is required when either pedestrians or cyclists are using the crossing.” Sounds straight forward but ‘are using’ is not true. In reality the aforementioned phantom crossers get an auto green at the expense of real vehicles waiting to turn. No wonder we have traffic problems and frustrated drivers. I asked the council if the new Riccarton Rd/Ave light set-up would be used as a template for the rest of Christchurch. The answer was no, that was true because the city was/is already being set-up with red-lighting

actual traffic so non-existent cyclists can have an auto green light. The council man claimed a ‘max of 66 vehicles an hour’ turn right, (east) off Deans to Riccarton Ave but said they don’t know how many bikes go north/ south. Interesting that another newspaper quoted the city council as claiming 1300 cyclists use the Hagley Park route each week day, maybe the new ‘online hub’ will know the real figure. Will our ‘new hub’ have how much the city council has spent on cycle lanes over the last few years and how much is budgeted in the next several, will they be toll-ways to recoup the cost? Will the new hub have the number of cars, adult cyclists, electric vehicles use the likes of Colombo St, Papanui Rd, Riccarton Rd and St Asaph Sts? So many questions but we’ll have to wait on the answers.

Viewpoint Hard fight for fair wage TAKE A bow, Kristine Bartlett. Your courage, perseverance and determination to fight for a fair wage have made a huge difference to lives of thousands of workers. But, as you are the first to remind everyone, you did not do this as a lone individual. It was your workmates through your union which banded together with you to take a stand that is life-changing for the 55,000 mainly women care workers it affects. You are modern day heroes. The road to this settlement has not been easy. It started back in 2012 when Kristine, an aged-care worker from Upper Hutt fronted union legal action against her employer TerraNova. The pay equity claim brought by E Tū (previously the Service and Food Workers Union) argued that her employer was under-paying staff because of the high percentage of female employees. It is the first legal

settlement in New Zealand which recognises that some jobs pay less because they are done mainly by women. This claim was fought in the courts by powerful interests. The Government itself had lawyers at each appeal stage of the original case opposing lower court decisions. Throughout the five years, Kristine and her union have told the story of a group of mainly women who dreaded getting sick because they can’t afford to go to the doctor,

who come to work without food, who walk to work in the rain because they don’t have the bus fare. All the while we were expecting these women to do incredibly important work caring for some of the most vulnerable in our society. This simply was not fair. So, this week we have seen a victory for what is right and the power of banding together to stand up for those rights. For the 20,000 workers currently on the minimum wage of $15.75 per hour, on July 1 they will move to at least $19 per hour. For a full-time worker, this means they will be taking home around an extra $100 a week, which is over $5000 a year. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

Essential Guide to China’s “Two Sessions”

The annual political sessions in China have drawn worldwide attention as the fifth sessions of the 12th National People’s Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), known as the “two sessions”(Lianghui), concluded in March. However, the “two sessions”, and what they entail, are not fully understood by many Chinese and overseas observers. “TWO SESSIONS” IN CHINA’S POLITICAL CALENDAR The term “two sessions” refers to the plenary sessions of the National People’s Congress (NPC) and the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). The two are held in early March every year. Those formal but wordy titles are difficult to remember, even for Chinese speakers, therefore, the Chinese moniker “two sessions” (lianghui) was coined. More than 5000 NPC deputies and members of CPPCC National Committee attend the sessions. Among them, are top leaders, renowned economists, entrepreneurs, artists and sportsmen and representatives from all walks of life. NPC deputies can submit motions, which are legally binding once adopted, while members of the CPPCC National Committee can only put forward no-binding proposals. During the sessions, the central government will reveal its annual work report, which includes the official gross domestic product (GDP) forecast as well as information on other major policies. NPC AS THE SuPREmE ORgAN Of STATE POWER According to the Constitution, the NPC is the fundamental political system in China, with about 2.6 million deputies at various levels. At the pinnacle of the system sits the NPC which exercises more than a dozen functions and powers, including the supervision of the enforcement of the constitution. The central government, the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Procuratorate answer to the NPC and are supervised by it. The NPC Standing Committee, a permanent body of the NPC has been active in inspecting whether governments comply with the law. In 2016, it conducted six inspections, covering about 30 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities.

Though they are part-time, NPC deputies are actively engaged in state affairs. At the annual full session, they review and vote on important legal documents and personnel changes, including electing president and vice president of China every five years, as well as submit motions and proposals. Since 2005, around 500 motions have been submitted by deputies to every annual session of the NPC. When not in session, they interact with the people, take up training programs, and participate in inspections of law enforcement and surveys on important or urgent issues. OuTCOmE Of NPC ANNuAL SESSION This year, among 2,838 NPC deputies present at the closing meeting of NPC annual session, 2,812 voted in favor of the government work report; 2,793 for the work report of the NPC Standing Committee; 2,606 for the work report of the Supreme People’s Court; and 2,606 for the work report of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate. Lawmakers also approved the General Provisions of the Civil Law, the decision on the quota and election of deputies to the next 13th NPC to be convened from 2018, and the methods for electing deputies to the 13th NPC from Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions. Other documents approved by the lawmakers included the 2017 national economic and social development plan, and the 2017 central and local budgets. CPPCC AS TOP POLITICAL ADvISORy bODy The CPPCC is an important platform on which various political parties, people’s organizations, and people of all ethnic groups and from all sectors of society work together democratically participating in state affairs. As China’s top political advisory body, CPPCC facilitates China’s multiparty cooperation and political consultation mechanism. The main functions of the CPPCC are to conduct political consultation, exercise democratic supervision and participate in the discussion and the handling of state affairs. Political consultation covers major principles and policies proposed by the central and local governments and matters of importance concerning political, economic, cultural and social affairs. Democratic supervision means offering suggestion and criticism, as well as supervision over the implementation of the Constitution, other laws, regulations and major policies, and over the work of government agencies and their functionaries. CPPCC members come from China’s various walks of life and ethnic groups. Most of the CPPCC members are experienced political figures, social celebrities, and experts and scholars specializing in various fields.

SETTINg ACHIEvAbLE gROWTH TARgET The NPC representatives include people from various backgrounds and cover a good cross-section of society. Direct election applies in the selection of township and county-level deputies, while the deputies at the prefecture, provincial and national levels are elected by lower level deputies. NPC deputies at various levels are key channels for community voices, reflecting local opinions and problems and enabling people to be masters of the nation. Deputies are both entitled and obliged to stand for the people’s interests and express their requests. NPC deputies are not divided into different caucuses according to party background but into 35 delegations based on where they are elected from, including 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, in addition to Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and the military. Such an arrangement is pragmatic, given China’s large territory and huge population, and ensures that NPC deputies are true representatives of the people.

One of the most important agendas of “two sessions” is revealing the government work report. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in delivering government work report pledged to continue reforms to attain the economic growth target of about 6.5 percent this year despite challenges ahead. The realistic growth target this year will help steer and steady expectations and make structural adjustments as well as help achieve the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects by 2020. Last year, China’s GDP reached 74.4 trillion yuan (10.8 trillion U.S. dollars), a 6.7-percent growth, outpacing most other economies and contributing more than 30 percent of global growth. Despite challenges, China created 13.14 million urban jobs and increased per capita disposable income by 6.3 percent. About 12.4 million people shook off poverty. Premier Li announced that in 2017, China will keep its CPI increase at around 3 percent, and create more than 11 million urban jobs with a registered urban unemployment rate within 4.5 percent. The country will also reduce its energy consumption per unit of GDP by at least 3.4 percent. Noting that China must be ready to face more complicated and graver situations including sluggish world economic growth and growing trend of protectionism, Li expressed his confidence that difficulties will be overcome as the country has a solid material foundation, abundant human resources, a huge market, and a complete system of industries.

ACCELERATINg SuPPLy-SIDE STRuCTuRAL REfORm According to the government work report, efforts of supplyside structural reform will center on a variety of areas, including streamlining administration, reducing taxes, further expanding market access, and reducing ineffective supply while expanding effective supply. To be specific, China will further reduce steel production capacity by around 50 million metric tons and coal capacity by at least 150 million metric tons this year. It also highlighted cutting excess urban real estate inventory, bringing down the leverage of enterprises, reducing costs for enterprises and strengthening areas of weakness including poverty eradication. fuRTHER OPENINg-uP Leaning against the anti-globalization headwinds, the Chinese government emphasized the need to further open up the economy and attract foreign investment. While joining a panel discussion during the “two sessions”, President Xi Jinping vowed the country would keep on opening up on all fronts. Premier Li Keqiang also detailed unprecedented opening-up measures to the outside world in the government work report. According to the report, significant improvements will be made in the environment for foreign investment. Service industries, manufacturing and mining will be more open to foreign investment. Foreign firms will be able to get listed on China’s stock markets and issue bonds. They will also be allowed to participate in national science and technology projects. Foreign firms will be treated the same as domestic firms in license applications, standards setting, and government procurement, and will enjoy the same preferential policies under the Made in China 2025 initiative, a plan to modernize the manufacturing sector. Moreover, China will open its door wider and import more products and technologies from overseas. And China will extend the practice of processing international trade through a single window, which enables cross-border traders to submit regulatory documents at a single location and thus improves efficiency. The authorities will achieve nationwide integration of customs clearance procedures this year. SAfEguARDINg PEACE AND STAbILITy IN ASIA-PACIfIC At a press conference after the conclusion of the “two sessions”, Premier Li Keqiang stressed China hopes to see continued peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region. He said Asia-Pacific is the common home for all countries in this region, and China does not want to see any party feeling compelled to choose sides under the influence of the Cold War mentality. China hopes that the Asia-Pacific region will be one that enjoys good order and stability, a region that is able to work out issues through consultation and principles, properly manage differences and has the wisdom to resolve differences. Premier Li mentioned China and ASEAN have been pushing forward consultation on the Code of Conduct (COC) in the South China Sea, and substantial progress has been made in this regard. China hopes to see continued peace and stability in the South China Sea, believing that specific disputes should be addressed and resolved through dialogue among the parties directly concerned. He also stressed that China and the United States have been cooperating with each other for a long time in the Asia-Pacific region, and there is a wide area of common interests and cooperation between the two countries. Many U.S. multinationals have placed their Asia-Pacific headquarters in China. He hopes the areas of cooperation between the two countries will continue to expand.

Visiting the mystical city of Edoras „„ By Mike Yardley IT’S THE type of scenery that screensavers are made for – Mt Sunday, deep in the heart of the Canterbury high country. I always find it fascinating to experience your own turf through the lens of a tourist, gleaning fresh perspectives from the outside world on the place you call home. Better known to movie-fans as the mystical city of Edoras, I recently joined a guided journey to this spectacular cinematic location with Hassle-free Tours. Heading south of Christchurch, in a comfortable six-wheel Toyota Land Cruiser, with elevated seating and panoramic windows, our driver-guide, Hammond, set sail on his illuminating, chatty commentary on the two-hour drive. We entered the Hakatere Conservation Park, flanked by the alpine lakes of Camp and Clearwater and their tight cluster of rustic batches. A quick photostop to soak up the expansive high country vistas served merely as an appetiser for the majesty that lay ahead. On a heavily rutted gravel Hakatere-Potts Rd, bracketed in golden hills of snow tussock, matagouri and toetoe, the most celestial viewpoint appeared at

Much of the land belongs to Mt Potts Station, however, in the wake of the Lord of the Ringsinspired popularity, DOC created an easement to Mt Sunday aka Edoras. From the public car park, it’s a 15min walk up the southern spur

of Mt Sunday. However, one of the many advantages of taking the journey with Hassle-free Tours is that it is the only operator with a concession to drive past the car park, fording the gin-clear streams and up part of the mountain, using the rutted track on the northern spur, which the land cruiser made light work of. From there, it’s a rather effortless stroll to the summit. Sixhundred metres above sea level, this rocky, protruding jewel in the

Venturing into the Kingdom of Rohan •From page 25 There’s Erewhon Station of Clydesdales-fame, the serpentine braids of the Rangitata River, the Southern Alps, the expansive valley plain and the silvery, slinking trail of Potts River. The air was so crisp and clear, the mountains seemed magnified, with their sharp edges and spectacular shingle fans. Only the sound of happilyclicking shutters, competed against the strengthening howls of the wind. The wind-speed reached 72km/h as we took in the summit spectacle and endured an involuntary facial exfoliation. Notorious for wind gusts, Hammond remarked that at the time of shooting, the Rings crew were buffeted by wind gusts as high as 180km/h. The real beauty of the Hassle-free tour is all the insightful behind-the-scenes nuggets. On one particularly windy day, Sir Peter Jackson’s glasses flew off his face, over the cliff, never to be seen again. There’s a movie relic to hunt for. Sir Peter stumbled upon this cinematic location by sheer accident. His location scouts were choppering down to the West Coast, but were forced to fly east due to bad weather, chancing upon Mt Sunday by a stroke of

sheer luck. Many of the riders of Rohan were actually women from the local pony clubs in midCanterbury. Hammond also explained how the construction of the city of Edoras took nine months, showing us photos of the elaborate sets, including Golden Hall, which graced this rocky outcrop. The cast and crew only spent 11 days actually shooting on sight. In spite of the alpine location, miraculously, they didn’t see one

drop of rain. Hammond also was equipped with an arsenal of replica weaponry and flags from the movie, which we had great fun posing with for obligatory photos. A variety of movie featurettes were played to our group, including some cracking bloopers. What really shone through was how much the cast genuinely fell in love with Mt Sunday. Driving back to Christchurch, Hammond finally revealed that he was Hammond Peek, the double Oscar-

ANZAC DAY, TUESDAY APRIL 25

Honour and respect On April 25, 1915 New Zealand and Australian troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey in a bloody campaign that saw 2779 New Zealanders give their lives as well as over 100,000 Turkish, British, French and Australian servicemen. As news of the terrible events reached New Zealand, there was an outpouring of national pride in the courage shown by our soldiers in the face of appalling adversity and sacrifice. That pride continues today. Since most of those who died on April 25 have no known grave they are commemorated instead on the Lone Pine Memorial on the

Gallipoli Peninsula, and their names are remembered forever on war memorials throughout the Nation. Anzac Day has come to symbolise the respect of the nation for all those killed in war, and also honours returned servicemen and women. In Christchurch, our local communities from Akaroa to Wigram Air Force Museum are marking the event. This year, the city’s Dawn Service begins at 6am in Cranmer Square with the traditional parade, a service and wreath-laying ceremony. A citizens’ service will be held at the Transitional Cathedral in Latimer Square at 10am. The resiliance of the Kiwi spirit is marked on April 25 and reflected in the symbols of courage such as the Bridge of Remembrance and the Citizen’s Memorial in Cathedral Square. They are important symbols for Cantabrians that, although damaged, they are still standing tall in the Garden City.

Playwright explores young Kiwis’

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding HIGH SCHOOL students immersed in the performing arts will examine one of New Zealand’s most significant battles with an award-winning playwright. With Anzac Day around the corner, playwright Dave Armstrong will host a one-off workshop with about Dave Armstrong 15 students from across the city studying a play focusing on the Gallipoli campaign. Students involved in The Court Theatre’s youth programmes will study Armstrong’s play Anzac Eve with the playwright. It delves into young New Zealanders’ views on the Gallipoli commemorations. As well as a playwright, Armstrong is a screenwriter, trumpet player and columnist who has had work feature on stage, radio and television. Anzac Eve is a modern-day comedy telling the story of

four opinionated young adults who meet the night before the dawn commemorations at Gallipoli. As well as focusing on the historic material in the show, students will study key techniques behind acting. “We will also have a chance to talk about acting and how our actors perform a role and digest all this information and turn it into a play,” Armstrong

A Trip Down Memory Lane with the New Zealand Army Band On the 30th of April at 4:00pm the world famous New Zealand Army Band is going to perform at “The Piano”, 156 Armagh Street, Christchurch. This is the first time that the band has performed a concert in Christchurch since the successful 50th celebration concert in 2014. New Zealand Army Band Bandmaster Warrant Officer Class Two Phillip Johnston is thrilled to be able to showcase the band’s talents locally in Christchurch’s latest performing arts venue “The Piano”. Warrant Officer Johnston said “the venue is ideally suited for a traditional brass band concert and it will be a great afternoon of music making”. The NZArmy Band’s program will be a trip down memory lane as the programme features classic brass band repertoire such as Eric Ball’s Resurgam and Kingdom Triumphant. The band has six current New Zealand solo champions and will feature three of them

during the concert. Private Kyle Lawson will perform Oasis, Lance Corporal Joe Thomas will perform Shenandoah and Sergeant Kevin Hickman will perform Ave Maria. As is appropriate with the concert being so close to ANZAC day, the band will also feature Fernleaf Headstones and Passchendaele. Both of these pieces were written for the band by past member, world renowned composer Dwayne Bloomfield. Fernleaf Headstones was written for the repatriation of the Unknown Warrior and Passchendaele depicts the tragic events of the Third Battle of Ypres, which to this day is still the most deadly day in New Zealand’s wartime history. The programme is rounded off with a couple of classic hymns and of course it would not be an NZ Army Band concert without a march or two. Director of Music of the New Zealand Army Band

Major Graham Hickman is excited to have the band performing such a traditional programme in their home town. “The band is in a really strong position at the moment with so many fine players, including seven current members of the 2017 National Youth Band and 14 current or past National Band members within the ranks”.

said. He said he wrote the play because he felt the country needed to look at Anzac Day through different viewpoints and was interested to know what it meant to younger people. “When I was growing up in the 1970s, I didn’t want to know about it basically. There was the Vietnam War on. The people I knew were very anti-

military and I had little interest in Anzac Day,” he said. But with both of his grandfathers taking part in World War 1 and Armstrong joining a military band, he said he soon became interested.

connection to Anzacs “It was a massive thing on both sides of the family . . . one grandfather limped for the rest of his life and died quite young. The other had a chest wound and coughed every winter,” he said. Armstrong said Anzac Eve looks at why the country chooses to commemorate the war and what young New Zealanders were doing there in the first place. “I think it is time to start saying what the hell were we doing there, why were we there, why did such terrible defeats occur, how did we lose so many and are we in danger of this happening again?” More than 2700 New Zealanders died in the Gallipoli campaign. Armstrong said he feels some facts in war history have been “glossed over,” including how many French died in Gallipoli and how Maori soldiers were treated. •A professional performance of Anzac Eve takes place today at 8pm at the Gloucester Room, Isaac Theatre Royal.

Gardening What to grow near fruit trees The fascinating world of companion plants is one to explore. Rebecca Lees writes about how they can give your fruit trees a boost

PEACH COMRADE: Tansy planted with ‘blackboy’ peach tree. Tansy deters a raft of harmful flying insects and is an excellent companion for the fruit garden.

COMPANION PLANTING is one of the most enjoyable things you can do in the fruit garden, especially if you begin with a blank canvas. Thanks to the interplanting of a host of companion plants under and around fruit trees, dull lifeless soil over time becomes full of organic matter, and alive with beneficial creatures crawling amongst it. The soil, now more fertile and robust, can aid the trees’ growth and access to nutrients, as well as increase the ability for the trees (and wider garden area) to keep pests and disease in check. Companions aren’t a magic wand, there are plenty of other tasks a gardener undertakes to ensure fruit trees are healthy and productive, but they’re a great tool and one I’ll never go without. How does it work? Companion plants can: •Lure pests to them and in turn help keep those pests away from other susceptible plants. •Confuse pests by disturbing the visual and chemical attributes that help pests find host plants. •Attract predatory insects, which then naturally lower the pest count in your garden. Keep an eye out If you’re particularly observant you may witness companions working their magic. You may notice ladybirds, a predatory insect;

We want her to be aware of the myriad of possibilities that exist so that she can become confident, resilient and skilled; a young woman who stands proud and tall, in any context, who not only has a voice but something to say and who is able, to use the business metaphor, take a seat at any table she chooses. We believe we must educate, nurture and inspire young women.

Burnside High School

Open Evening 2017

Burnside High School is pleased to invite members of the community to our Open Evening on Tuesday 16 May. We are well aware of the significance parents place on the transition from Primary or Intermediate to Secondary School and how important it is to make the right decision about this transition. Burnside High School is a large secondary school, a centre for academic excellence, with an outstanding record of academic, cultural and sporting success. The size of the school ensures that there is an exceptionally wide range of subjects and extra-curricular opportunities available. This provides flexibility for students to follow a pathway suited to their ability, interests and skills. The unique structure of the school retains all the benefits of a large school but with students in Divisions of approximately 700. This ensures that students are known on an individual basis and are supported and mentored by senior students, Form Teachers, Deans and Guidance Counsellors. This strong pastoral and guidance focus helps Burnside High School students strive to excel and develop into well rounded New Zealanders. Students achieve well above the level

of similar schools in the attainment of NCEA certificates and endorsements and perform to the highest level in a range of local, regional and national academic, cultural and sporting competitions. The school is renowned for its Specialist Music Programme, the only such programme in the country. The Open Evening offers Year 8 students and their families a chance to view the facilities and to experience some of the opportunities Burnside High School is proud to offer its students.

The ultimate campus for

Avonside and Shirley

A large Performing Arts Centre, three full-sized Gyms (complete with climbing wall) and four Sportsfields are among the key facilities that will be enjoyed by Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School in the future. The two schools are being rebuilt alongside one another and next to the new QEII Sport and Recreation Centre. They will open in time for Term Two of 2019 so students who enrol to study at the schools next year, will only spend just over a year on the schools’ existing sites. The new campus’ design was created by New Zealand’s ASC Architects – part of the ShapED consortium that is building and will also maintain the new schools. Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume says being able to start from scratch has enabled ASC to come up with the ‘ultimate campus’. “We are delighted. The new campus will feature better facilities than either of our schools have ever had in the past.” Shirley Boys’ Headmaster John Laurenson agrees, describing the design as modern and sympathetic to the surrounding area. “The two schools will be set back from Travis Road with numerous trees and landscaped areas. It will be a very green campus,” says John Laurenson. As well as the major facilities, each school will have a long list of specialist learning facilities. Highlights include an Electronics Lab, a 2D and 3D Printing Room, six Science Labs and an Indoor Fitness Centre (complete with exercise equipment including rowing machines, stationery bikes and

treadmills). Sue Hume says the design enables the schools to offer students completely new experiences. “The facilities are just so much better than what we have now. For example, in each school’s Social Sciences and Media there is a large Editing Suite, Presentation Space, two Recording Studios and a Media Studio. It’s a big step up,” says Sue Hume. John Laurenson says the schools will continue to deliver quality single sex education. “Students will spend most of their day in a singlesex environment – that is really important to us. Single sex education benefits both boys and girls. Our students will also benefit, both educationally and socially, from being able to learn alongside and mix with students from the partner school. It is a fantastic opportunity.”

Two of the gyms on the campus will feature a climbing wall and be able to be linked for major events. The schools will also share a third gym

The schools will have numerous outdoor areas that will be landscaped to enable students and teachers to work outside.

The front of the campus will face Travis Road but be set behind a large landcaped courtyard and plantings.

Avonside Girls’ High School

OPEN EVENING Thursday 25 May 2017 from 5.00pm – 7.00pm

The evening begins in the gymnasium at 5.00pm, with an address from the Principal, Mrs Sue Hume, and student representatives. A tour of the school follows, with the opportunity to talk to teachers and students. We look forward to welcoming all prospective students and families for 2018.

Tue 23 & Thur 25 May 2017

Formation is at the heart of the education Middleton Grange School provides – a whole of life formation. We see learning as holistic; it aims to instruct the mind, shape the heart and equip the hand. The root of formation is faith and so Middleton Grange not only provides a first rate general education but also biblically based teaching in the Christian faith. Formation of the mind is not primarily intellectual contemplation or conceptual mastery but a learning that nurtures wisdom and discernment. It is a learning that challenges the mind to think, discern and critique the ideas and theories pupils are exposed to from a Christian perspective. Middleton Grange’s learning culture allows the formation of the heart so that it shapes

Working together for the good of students and families has been a successful recipe for Christian Integrated Schools in Christchurch. The Christian School Network has been in existence for over ten years. Aidanfield Christian School, Emmanuel Christian School, Hillview Christian School and Middleton Grange School decided in 2005 that there was much to be gained by working together cooperatively. They recognised opportunities to share successful teaching practice, curriculum development initiatives across a wide spectrum of school operations as well as cooperatively strengthening their special

We want our pupils to engage in the society they live in, to be of benefit and blessing in a practical way. For Middleton Grange School, while our academic results are of the highest level, what is highly prized, is that our pupils exercise wisdom, serve the community and promote the well-being of others. It is about forming the pupil to be the person God created them to be. All of this is summed up in the school motto: Character, Excellence, Service for the Glory of God.

Christian Character. They recognised that their ability to serve students and families was greatly enhanced by working together in a close and trusting relationship. The success of the network has seen other schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece Rangiora New Life School became part of the network. The schools joined together to support the genesis of Ashburton Christian School and also culminated in the start up of a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015. The schools have developed interlocking enrolment schools which assists in providing transparent pathways in Christian education from new entrant through to Year 13. A further strength has been a cooperative engagement with the Ministry of Education who have been pivotal in assisting the networks successful development.

Mairehau vs Wild The annual ‘Mairehau vs Wild’ Year 12 Physical Education camp was recently. After days of torrential rain, the team was blessed with gorgeous weather, with the sun shining down on our epic adventures! Day 1 included raft building, kayaking and paddle-boarding at Lake Rua. The girls easily beat the boys in the raft building task, much to the boys’ dismay! Next stop was the Birch Hill Cemetery to see a tribute to the horses who served and died in World War 1. We were humbled by this impressive memorial, and its stunning and poignant location. Day 2 we scaled Mt Oxford. This lofty beast took us about 7 hours to climb, but we were treated to breathtaking panoramic views. That evening, we visited the Oxford Observatory. This was a real highlight. We got to see Jupiter, its ‘rings’ and four of its moons. We also got to see our closest star, a supernova and a ‘black hole’, and we found out where all our star signs live in the sky.

On Day 3, we mountain-biked from base to Kowhai Riding School, where we got to learn to ride and trot horses, before taking them on a trek. A delicious fish and chip lunch followed, before making the journey back. This was a wonderful trip. We made new friends, and learned and experienced many new things. Mairehau High School prides itself on all the many amazing opportunities we can offer our students. Come along to our Open Evening and find out more!

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Hillmorton High Riccarton High School School

When considering what our young people need in order to be positive, successful and contributing citizens the following positive dispositions, alongside formal qualifications, are thought to be important: empathy, selfcontrol, integrity, embracing diversity and grit.

Hillmorton High School, catering for Years 7 to 13, has a diverse student population in terms of socio-economic status, ethnicity, prior learning, ability and disability. We fairly well represent New Zealand society and as such, our students study alongside students

from varying backgrounds. Through this alone they develop empathy, self-control, and a deep understanding of diversity which we embrace. Our students develop into young adults where they are strong in their own identity; they have integrity. We know that Hillmorton students take a broad range of pathways on leaving school including university and understand the value of hard work and determination. We continue to work to understand how to teach in ways that help to develop “grit” and resiliency. We know to praise “effort” and I encourage all parents to do the same. Working together, our young people are developing the positive dispositions, skills and knowledge needed so that they can indeed create great futures.

As Riccarton High School approaches its 60th year of opening, the school looks forward to welcoming the Year 9 intake for 2018. ‘Our priority is on developing young men and women who constantly strive to being the very best they can be,’ said Principal Neil Haywood, ‘who are socially responsible, globally connected as digital citizens and who are both confident and competent with the skills required to be successful beyond school.’ Riccarton is often referred to as having a friendly, family-type environment with a strong focus on character building through the teaching of values embedded in ‘The Riccarton Way’ – the spirit behind the way both staff and students think, act and feel at

Hagley sets you up for life If you are looking for a high school where teachers work closely with you to ensure you get the very best out of your high school years, then Hagley’s Junior Graduating College is the right choice for you.

We are often asked, what makes Hagley different? We have a culture like no other. No-one wears a uniform and everyone is on a first name basis, but that is just for starters. Students come to Hagley because they’re treated with respect and valued as individuals. Hagley’s Junior Graduating College has small classes and we take a personal approach. It is all about what we can do to help you. Classes are fun, focused and inspire you to be the very best you can. What does that mean for you? You feel that your teachers are interested in you and care about your learning, that you are experiencing

success – and much more. We love our students aiming high and doing well. Students graduate into Hagley’s large Senior College where they succeed academically and in many other ways, as well as become our school leaders. This is all built on the great foundations laid in our Junior College. Hagley’s Junior Graduating College combines the best of both worlds: freedom to be yourself and enjoy school in a structured and supportive environment where achievement is celebrated. Experience the Hagley difference – it will set you up for life!

Pathways at Linwood College In 2017 Linwood College is offering a range of events for prospective students and their parents. Due to a heightened demand, this year we are introducing the opportunity to meet individually with our principal, Richard Edmundson. Available times are noted on the flyer. Incoming Yr 6 and Yr 8 students will have a Taster Afternoon and then for the Open Night each family will have their own individual guide who is a present Linwood College student. Aspiration and success: learning at Linwood College is founded on personalised pathways. Learning is personalised and individual needs are recognised and met. Each individual receives the content and style of education that is appropriate for their specific stage of learning and social development.

Our school’s Yr 7-13 curriculum creates aspiration and community. There is educational and social continuity, yet with the “rites of passage” that students of all ages stress are important as they grow and mature. It brings out the best in our students. Students know that what they are learning is based on their own individual pathways. They increasingly take responsibility for their own learning, knowing that with positive actions and effort they will achieve. Students learn best when who they are – language, culture, identity – is affirmed. The personalized pathways model creates whānau-school partnerships as it recognizes and nurtures the uniqueness of each one of our students and their specific capabilities. It creates multiple opportunities for leadership so students excel and develop independence.

A new school is coming Make it yours

„„ By Ross Kiddie NEW ZEALAND has become quite the ute-buying nation. That doesn’t surprise me, Kiwis are following trends out of North America and Australia. In the last few years ute sales here have shot up to record levels. While it’s fair to say most buyers are choosing Ford and its Ranger, all manufactures which ply that part of the market are claiming success. None more so than Holden with its Colorado, it is selling hard on the heels of Ranger, a new model was launched last year and as I reported in these columns in November, it is a standout in terms of refinement and, of course, practicality. That evaluation focused on the mid-spec LTZ; five days with the range-topping Z71 has done nothing to alter my affection for the popular four-wheel-drive double cab. Clearly, the Z71 is aimed more towards the recreational buyer, it has decals, stripes, body kit and a level of specification which wouldn’t work for many industry roles. However, I found the deck cover functional and useful for low loads, I took a deck full of foliage to the green recycling centre, to be able to pack it down and hold it secure with the fibreglass cover was simply brilliant. I also used that area to transport the cricket gear I use as year 4 coach, to have it locked secure when I was away from the vehicle was also another bonus. These tasks were no match for the Colorado’s 1000kg load capacity, but they did serve to prove how adaptable the modern ute has become, and if you add in a 3500kg tow rating the Colorado is right up there in terms of load carrying performance. At the other end sits a 2.8-litre, four-cylinder twin-camshaft turbocharged diesel engine. It is rated bay Holden at 147kW

HOLDEN COLORADO Z71: Genuine off-roader.

and with 500Nm of torque available at just 2000rpm it is a powerhouse, easily on a par with all of its competitors. Drive is harnessed through a six-speed automatic transmission. A manual is available, but it won’t compete with the auto in terms of sales figures. • Price – Holden Colorado Z71, $66,990 • Dimensions – Length, 5361mm; width, 1872mm; height, 1800mm • Configuration – Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,2776cc, 147kW, 500Nm, sixspeed automatic • Performance – 0-100km/h, 11sec • Fuel usage – 8.7l/100km

Shifts are smooth and the gearing is such that it provides relaxed motoring at highway speed along with the ratios needed for slow speed, off-the-seal travel. Backing up that theory is the fitment of a true low ratio transfer box, it is manipulated electronically by a console-mounted dial switch, at the driver’s command. It’s fair to say I didn’t take the Z71 off-road. When Holden launched the new series, it included a traction-challenging offroad excursion in North Canterbury. I felt I didn’t need to replicate that given all vehicles completed the undulating and muddy hill sections without drama.

VERSATILE: The Z71 has a high level of specification.

Instead, I spent most of my time with the Z71 at highway speed and my regular commute. In those conditions it seems more car-like that ute-like. Sure, there is a lot of bulk to manoeuvre in close confine situations, but it’s no worse than any other vehicle of its type. And if you take into account the number which are being sold, buyers quite obviously don’t rate that as a challenge. On the open road, the engine turns over slowly at 1550rpm at 100km/h in top gear. At that speed it returns a 6.2-litre per 100km (46mpg) instantaneous fuel usage figure, that accounted for an 9.4l/100km (30mpg) average figure during my time with the ute. That correlates well with the 8.7l/100km (32mpg) figure Holden claims for a combined cycle average. Road and wind noise are both kept to a minimum, and the Colorado, as a series, imparts a smooth ride. Of course, it is better with a bit of weight in the back, but the reality is the load bearing suspension is relatively absorbent and the cab doesn’t jiggle unnecessarily on uneven surfaces. That’s an area where local research and development pays dividends. Holden Australia places a huge emphasis on developing vehicles for down under conditions and it certainly shows in Colorado. The ride is acceptable and the entire in-cabin experience is comfortable. I guess, it would need to be. The Z71 isn’t cheap at $66,990, but for that money you do get a lot of kit. Even though the Z71’s flashy bits disguise its traditional ute look, make no mistake, it is still the quintessential Colorado which has carved out a huge reputation as a tough, go-anywhere worker.

HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

Foran to meet Storm coach Craig Bellamy – report AUSTRALIAN MEDIA are reporting that Kieran Foran joining Melbourne is back on the table with the Warriors star supposedly seeking an audience with the Storm’s master coach Craig Bellamy. The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Foran is contemplating “the prospect of starting over in Melbourne.” The Warriors play the Storm on Tuesday in Melbourne in the traditional Anzac round clash between the two clubs.

The Sydney Morning Herald claimed Foran would use the opportunity to meet Bellamy, who is seeking a replacement for departing playmaker Cooper Cronk who is moving to Sydney to be closer to fiancee Tara Rushton. It reported Bellamy has identified Foran and St George Illawarra captain Gareth Widdop as the best players available on the open market. It said Foran would tour the Storm’s facilities and meet with

Sticking it to the Aussies in 8-ball SIX CANTABRIANS will take on the world’s best in Australasia’s richest 8-ball tournament this weekend. The Christchurch contingent of Danny Bowen, Healey White, Jun Carreon, Steve Denton, Jordan Maehe and Kyri Michaelides departed for Australia yesterday to compete at the Big Guns tournament in Bundoora, Melbourne. They will be joined by eight other New Zealand players, more than 100 of Australia’s best players, and a contingent from the United Kingdom, including three-time world champion Mick Hill. For most of the Christchurch players, this will be their first international tournament experience. “It’s going to be great to just see the next level and where you can bring your game to,” said Bowen. The tournament has more than 128 players and a total prize pool of more than AUS$70,000, with the winner taking home AUS$12,000. Christchurch’s top player Steve Denton has watched Big Guns tournaments on the

internet for the last two years, but decided now was the time to send a Kiwi contingent across the ditch. After getting in touch with the organiser in Sydney, he was promised eight spots for New Zealand players in this year’s tournament. That number has now been extended to 14. “I think there are many players here in New Zealand

that are going on this trip who, on their day, are capable of beating anyone,” said Denton. The tournament is an individual competition. However, the New Zealand contingent is going over with a team mentality. They will all play in the same uniform and will even be sharing the same accommodation. Although you can be assured

the team theory will go out the door if two of the Kiwis draw each other. A number of the competitors will also play in a single day tournament in Bundoora on Anzac Day. New Zealand has also been invited to send a team to compete in a tri-series against England and Australia in Canberra in November.

Australian administrators under fire

BRUMBIES FLANKER Scott Fardy says the disappointing handling of the Super Rugby competition has come as no surprise but hopes the “faceless men in suits” at SANZAAR learn from the debacle. THe season has been marred by constant speculation over the future of one Australian franchise, as the governing body weighed up ways to fix the ailing competition. THe result of months of talks

was to reduce the number of teams from 18 to 15 with two South African teams and one from Australia to be kicked out. THe Brumbies were spared the axe when the Australian Rugby Union announced last week it would be either the Western Force or Melbourne Rebels to be cut from the competition in 2018, but an initial 72-hour deadline on which club will be cut was thrown out the window when the

said Super Rugby’s governing body lacked a public face. “Obviously everyone looks at the ARU at the moment but you wouldn’t know who the head of SANZAAR is at any point – I wouldn’t know what he looks like,” Fardy said. “It’s faceless men in suits in board rooms.” Fardy, who is leaving the Brumbies at the end of the season to join Irish powerhouse Leinster, said he felt for the Force and

Dressing your property up for sale First impressions count from the moment potential buyers view a property from the street to the moment they walk through the front door. Weed the garden, cut back unruly shrubs and prune trees where needed. Kill off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass seed over bald patches and fertilise the lawn. Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items or fitness equipment and if too many photos on the wall pack these away so the home looks roomy. If there is a gap or a room needs enhancing, look at what you have. A piece of furniture might be painted up or an old leather bound book popped on the coffee table. Shelves will also add depth to a narrow space while mirrors may give the illusion of a larger space. In entryways, add an easy chair, small table, bookcase or large vase. Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings in attics or upstairs rooms might be converted into storage shelving and the room given a purpose as an office, playroom or extra bedroom so viewers can see how the room might be used. Stow possessions neatly in containers, shelving or tidily in cupboards; highlighting the storage potential within the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy for viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers will be pet lovers while some may suffer pet allergies putting them off a house if they see a pet inside. If parts of the house look tired,

consider renovating by painting walls, replacing worn carpet, or modernising the kitchen, bathroom and toilet; rooms that should sparkle. Replace tired cabinetry, or the benches and cupboard/drawer fronts then update old toilets, showers or kitchen appliances. Modernising these rooms can lift the final selling price.

The Reasons to list your Property with me: I have many years experience selling Real Estate in NZ, USA & Europe! I’m different, I think out of the box, I use unique techniques!

FREE Property Appraisal!! Use consistent and light paint colours throughout for balance and seamlessness, making the house appear more spacious. An effect that is increased when walls and curtains share the same or a similar colour. Consider the personality and purpose of a room. Bright colours lift living areas especially if large and open. However, bedrooms are suited to calmer softer colours with just a touch of bold. Layer bedding or use throws for effect along with cushions or a stuffed toy in a children’s room. With curtaining, smaller patterns or plain fabrics are the rule for smaller rooms whereas larger patterns make spacious areas cosier. If blinds or drapes are past their best, replace these even if it is only with neutral cotton curtains. The effect will be worth it. Eco-friendly features will also add value for some buyers though not universally, however earthy natural colours and features are popular. Consider who your target buyers are likely to be and what will appeal to them.
