CASHMERE IS no stranger to illegal dumping and residents are getting frustrated. From couches, televisions and mattresses to children’s clothes, rubbish is often left along Cashmere streets, particularly Cashmere and Henderson Rds. Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association chairwoman Sue Bye said she can’t stand the sight of rubbish littering the roads and the neighbourhood. “I think it’s revolting and terrible.” Mrs Bye said because the streets were isolated, it would be hard for city council to monitor the dumping. She said all residents could do was to inform city council when they saw the mess. City council city streets maintenance manager Mark Pinner said they received about five to six complaints about rubbish dumping each year in the Cashmere and Henderson Rds area. Mr Pinner said the cost to clean up the waste each time varied on the size and what the contents were. “It is a cost to city council, and ultimately the ratepayer.” He said he encouraged the public to notify city council if they see anyone dumping rubbish. Residents can phone city council’s call centre on 941 8999.

FROM THE REPORTER’S DESK IT’S SAD news to hear the Cracroft Chase Vineyard will not be picking its crop this year (page 3). Alessandro and Wilma Laryn’s vineyard escaped being destroyed by the Port Hills fire in February, only to have a fungal disease ruin the crop this year. However, they’re certainly keeping their spirits high and hopefully the business will have a good season next year to help balance their situation. It’s not all doom and gloom with Phillipstown residents getting stuck in and creating something worthwhile for their community – see page 5. Their new earth oven will no doubt become a centrepiece of the Phillipstown Community Hub and will fire up their community spirit. –Noah Graham

Cracroft Chase’s crop decimated „„ By Noah Graham IN SPITE of the Port Hills fire coming within 20m of destroying Wilma and Alessandro Laryn’s vineyard crop, it was a fungal disease which claimed this year’s grapes. Each year the Cracroft Chase Vineyard owners employ about 50 people to pick their grapes, but won’t be this year after discovering the crop had been infested by the a fungal disease, powdery mildew. Mr Laryn said the disease, along with the bad weather, meant the grapes were not of a high enough standard to pick. He said, on average, about 30 or 40 tonne of grapes were picked each year. “It’s a very, very rough estimate, but maybe about 30 tonne of grapes won’t be picked. “We will remove the net and the grapes will feed the birds.” Mr Laryn said the lack of grapes this season was not ideal, but the business would not be negatively affected by the loss in the immediate future. He said the grapes lost meant they will miss out on about 16,000 to 20,000 bottles of wine. There is enough stock to keep selling their wine and

CLOSE CALLS: Alessandro and Wilma Laryn say their business will be fine after this year’s crops were ruined by a fungal disease which swept through the Cracroft Chase Vineyard. The vineyard is just below Christchurch Adventure Park and the Port Hills fire came within 20m of destroying their livelihood in February. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

because they aged it, if there is a detrimental affect from this year’s crop loss, the vineyard would not feel it for a couple of years, he said. Mr Laryn said: “Life is just like that.” He said the vineyard would not be making wine this year and would not buy grapes to substitute the loss. He was grateful for the support and understanding of the people who would usually pick the grapes. Many of them were friends of the couple, Mr

Laryn said. “They were all very supportive . . . they have always been kind to us.”

The group made a deputation to the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board last week asking for the board and city council to look into the possibility of being granted a lease for the hall. President of the club, Giles Wood, said the lease would not have to be permanent, but would provide a regular place for them to perform.

Experiencing new cultures Ferrymead Rotary member Barbara Crooks talks about a recent meeting from North American Rotarians and the benefit of the club’s friendship exchange programme A dozen North American Rotarians were enthralled by the traditional Maori welcome and entertainment they received at Woolston’s Te Waka Unua School. Visitors Chris and Joe Townley said the group was highly impressed by the enthusiasm, passion and repertoire of the young boys and girls from the school’s bilingual education unit. After a powhiri, and a hongi, the children performed a haka, songs and dances. Chris Townley says they were brilliantly entertained and the visitors were intrigued by the children’s ability to perform in front of an audience. The group – from Washington State, United States, and Vancouver Island, Canada, was part of Rotary’s International friendship exchange NEW programme, which 1 LOCATION ADVERT.pdf brings people together for social

and cultural interaction. Groups of around 12 Rotarians exchange on a district-to-district basis and are hosted by Rotarians. This group was hosted in Ashburton, Hokitika, Nelson, Blenheim and Christchurch (Upper South Island district). A programme was organised to show aspects of life in New Zealand – farming, tourism, grapegrowing and wine-making. Friendship exchange is one of Rotary’s many international programmes that allow people to experience different cultures and countries. The visitors thought it was a wonderful way of getting to know residents of another country and to swap views on many subjects – from politics to religion. Some exchanges include projects to involve the visiting Rotarians in local communities. If you want to come along and see what we get up to at Ferrymead Rotary you would be very welcome.

Addington resident Joy Priest writes about last week’s Southern View article about Selwyn St businesses and their concerns over the designs to enhance the area I wonder if Karolin Potter gives any thought to how “excited” Sarah Lim and all the other business owners in Christchurch feel at losing their on-street parking, customers and possibly their business and livelihoods? Does she give any thought to how “excited” residents are in many suburbs all over Christchurch who are losing their on-street parking with a reduction in property value and some even their homes? How “excited” are ratepayers at the ongoing rates increases to pay for all these cycleways? Maybe her “excitement” is only for cyclists? Well I, and many others, are not “excited” and Karolin Potter is dreaming if she thinks we ever will be. We said: Selwyn St businesses are worried they will go bankrupt if parking is removed outside of their shops. You said:

If someone is killed (which they will be) whoever designed it must face charges under the health and safety act because frankly, they have designed and built a dangerous piece of infrastructure which, in places, is absolutely not fit for purpose.

Paul Lynch – The lady in last week’s Southern View front page article is right. I often nip in there to get lunch. Firstly because it’s top-notch tucker but more importantly because most times I can stop right outside or close by. If I can’t stop anywhere, then I don’t stop. The designers of this cycleway have cocked it up all over town and still they continue with it.

News Anna Henderson – It’s such a tricky one. In the future, once all the cycleways are built and public transport is improved, y people will rely less on cars, which is the case in every modern city in the world. It is the way of the future and is backward to keep up this obsession with cars. Having an accessible, less car-reliant city was high on everyone’s wish-list for the city in Share an Idea. However, until that point everyone still has cars and they still need places to park them. And businesses need them to be able to park to shop there. It’s a bit of a catch-22. We need parks until progress is made but progress can’t be made without losing parks. It needs some problem-solving skills and good planning. Charlotte Elsie – Sarah Lim, I’m so sorry you feel this way. I know you make great pies because I regularly stop into your store on my bike. Sometimes I go out of my way for your pies because they are so good, other times I grab a sandwich for my work lunch. I worked just up the road from you for a while and biked passed your shop every morning and night. I know how many cyclists use that Selwyn St route. John White – Christch-


urch has gone mad. They are reducing the size of all roads and putting cyclists first. Vehicle owners are no longer wanted in this city is certainly the feeling I am getting. Ann Corkin – Karolin Potter, surely ‘excitable’ was not what you intended to say? Many businesses will suffer with these bike lanes. Not many cyclists carry shopping. Many landlords will be left with properties not able to be leased. Welcome to ghost town, Christchurch.

COMMUNITY SPIRIT: Phillipstown Community Hub volunteers constructed the earth oven last month which will serve the community fresh bread in a few weeks once the clay has dried out. ​

Helen Young – Why do we need lanes for bikes all over town? We also need parks. Caroline Hiseman Elvidge – Love this place, good on you for standing up for your rights. Sarah, your food is awesome and service outstanding. Hard to find. Cheryl McNickel - If there is no parking outside or close to the shops, then people will definitely go elsewhere. Putting in cycle lanes and taking out car parks does not make Christchurch an “excitable city” – it will only make it a frustrating one. It may make it better for cyclists but it will not be appreciated by people in the neighbourhood who rely on the shops being accessible.

Oven will bring community together „„ By Noah Graham PHILLIPSTOWN residents are ready to fire up a new earth oven to help create a friendly, recreational area. About 20 people stomped around in clay last month at the Phillipstown Community Hub to help build the oven, which will be the centre piece of hub. Phillipstown Community Hub co-ordinator Viviana Zanetti said the oven is part of the hub’s effort to provide a place for the com-

munity to come together. She said the area will also feature a flower bed that will act as a herb garden, a picnic bench for people to sit and eat at and a playground which will be designed by the children and constructed by the volunteers. Ms Zanetti said the hub will hold workshops for the future projects for the community to help them create the recreational space. “In this way, on one hand the community can take ownership

of the place and on the other hand they can learn skills and abilities.” Ms Zanetti said they are still a few weeks away from using the oven as it needs to dry properly without cracks forming in the clay. She also said they were still discussing who can use the earth oven. “It would be great if the community could use it, but we need to think carefully about it, there are some health and safety related issues.”

Hannah Laughton

Nurse wants to inspire others Hannah Laughton, a registered nurse working for the Aranui Community Trust Incorporated Society, received an open for leadership award from Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne earlier this month. She talks to Sarla Donovan about studying nursing with her mother and growing up in east Christchurch What did your mum say when you told her about your award? I didn’t really know much about it, I had to look it up and then when I told her she was stoked. She was like ‘well done love, so proud.’ Both my parents are very proud. I bet they are. Do nurses run in your family? Yes, my mum is a nurse and we actually trained together and graduated together. It was pretty cool. At one point I was still living at home, so we lived together, we studied together, and for a while we both had jobs at the same supermarket. We are lucky that we get along; we’re not the kind of mother and daughter that have huge issues.   Did you always want to be a nurse? As I grew up I knew I wanted to help people. I thought I might be a teacher and I did a term of early childhood studies but it didn’t feel like my calling. I had a few bumps along the way,   failed a paper early on.  I was 19 and a bit silly with my decisions. Someone suggested perhaps I’d be better off just as an enrolled nurse, which is the diploma level.  I’m thinking I don’t want to do that but they said that’s the only way you’re going to move forward. So I found my mojo again, finished my enrolled nurse training, graduated in April 2010 and got a nursing job working at Kate Sheppard.

MOTIVATED: Nurse Hannah Laughton likes to learn and pass on knowledge. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

They put me in charge of the rest home section. By June 2010 I got accepted into the registered nurse programme and graduated from that in 2013 and you won’t believe how good that felt. I’m not afraid to say I failed because I don’t really like people telling me what to do. I’m not a big risktaker but when I feel strongly about something I learn from everything that I don’t do quite right. So I had a bit of fire in my belly and thought to myself ‘I’m going to show all those people who didn’t think I’d be worthy of being a registered nurse.’ Tell me about your family There ares five of us – mum, dad, my two younger brothers and me. I grew up in Aranui the first 10 years of my life. I loved it, felt very safe, walked to school every day and home again. My parents were never concerned about where I was, they just loved this area. But when my brothers came along it was time

to upgrade the house and so we moved closer to the beach. That’s when I started surf lifesaving at Waimairi, which I’ve done for 19 years. When I was 14 I became a surf lifeguard. From there, I’ve gained a new qualification pretty much every year. I’m now the Canterbury chief examiner for the surf lifeguard award. All voluntary but that’s my side passion. I love the physical aspect as well as being able to pass on knowledge like CPR and first aid. Exposure to the public and dealing with emergency situations has all helped in my career. Building relationships is a big part of your job now isn’t it. Definitely. In any community you really need that strong basis of trusting a therapeutic relationship. You can’t just rock up, you have to give people the space to trust you with their health. You want to give them the power to lead their own health. What drives you?

I’ve got this deep-seated thing to be a leader and to make a difference someway, somehow to somebody. It doesn’t have to be life-changing but someone might see one of my videos or see a write up and go ‘I’m going to make a change today’, or ‘I’m going to take control of my life today.’ I just want to inspire. What’s the best advice anyone ever gave you? Always being honest and genuine in everything you do. Courage is also a big thing with me because as a leader you sometimes have to have those conversations that aren’t comfortable but are necessary. It takes courage to have courage. What should people do to stay healthy? Look after their health when they’re healthy. The usual stuff – exercise, healthy eating, getting to the doctor when we need to, getting our tests, keeping ourselves warm, eating good food,

keeping up with your medication if you’re on them. People have the power to keep themselves healthy. Take control and focus on being healthy rather than treating a disease or an issue. Where do you see your career heading? I would like to move into being a nurse practitioner within the next five years or so; it’s such a great initiative. You have the compassion of a nurse with the bonus of prescribing rights in your designated area. I’m constantly hungry for new knowledge and ultimately that goal of being a nurse practitioner will be a win-win because you’re still developing yourself professionally and yet you have that knowledge that’s so advanced that you can teach people perhaps in a position like mine. There’s no such thing as just a nurse; the culture is changing around nurse practitioners and GPs are becoming more open to the idea.

Linwood College


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

Enrolling now for 2018 Message from the Principal Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai ki te kura. Warm greetings to the Linwood College community. It is good to be able to report to our community of the successes of Term One. What is particularly pleasing is the increased involvement of students in co-curricular activities and the already close monitoring of 2017 NCEA achievement. This means that students achieving well are acknowledged and further encouraged while students with any early achievement ‘wobbles’ are promptly noted, with student-family-school conversations occurring. This is important to us as we value the dual concepts of personal pathways and personal excellence. Connected to these student pathways is another very pleasing development that has occurred over Term One - the Community of Learning (COL). COLs are schools collaborating to ensure the student is at the centre of all activity, but not just in the individual school that they are in at the time, but as students progress through their education. Linwood College is already in

the Tamai COL. These schools are LC, Te Waka Unua, Linwood North, Linwood Ave, Bromley, Tamariki and Bamford. A few weeks ago the Bays cluster of schools – Sumner, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant, Heathcote Valley – made an application to become a COL with Linwood College as their partnership secondary school and this has been accepted by the Minister of Education. A practical example of how COLs are good news is when Heathcote Valley’s Year 7-8s stay after their regular Technology class at LC to have enrichment Science, brain dissection amongst other things! Another enrichment programme that is occurring for both COLs is debating and oratory. Mrs Jac Yoder, our HOLA English; Mrs Rose McInerney, Redcliffs Principal and Ms Janeane Reid, Te Waka Unua Principal have brought together our top debaters and orators in Years 6-8 to work together in an eight-week programme. Personal excellence in action. Nga mihi nui to our community as we close Term One and prepare for the further positive activity of Term Two. If any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything, my door is open. Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki-Principal

Taster Day 2017 Taster Day offered students the opportunity to see a range of different out-of-class activities that are on offer at Linwood College. Some of these activities include: community garden club, volleyball, futsal/football, league, Pasifika, theatre sports, young enterprise, cricket, kapa haka, debating, car club, Mindfulness, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Cactus, board games, rock bands, netball, basketball, maths club, Robotics, Ki o Rahi and choir.

Polyfest 2017 Linwood College students represented the College superbly during the recent Polyfest 2017 event. This was a day of celebration for all Pasifika students living in Christchurch. The Polynesian festival is a practical opportunity to strengthen students’ knowledge of their cultural heritage while showcasing their dancing and performance skills.

Dramatic Flair Year 10 students have recently finished Commedia Dell’Arte performances. This is an Italian form of theatre which focuses on themes such as Love, Food and Money.

Linwood College Cactus Training More than sixty Linwood College students have passed through the rigorous ‘Cactus’ Program. Cactus is a big commitment both physically and mentally, challenging the students from Years 7 to 13 to test their limits with training starting at 6.30am. Recently the Woolston Fire Brigade supported the program by providing onsite training at the Woolston Fire Training Centre.

2017 PRODUCTION: WOLFSTOCK We are very excited to present our production Wolfstock to our community. With auditions now completed, this will be performed during the third term.

Festival of Nations For two days in March, Linwood College was on show - in all its glory as communities from forty-seven countries came together to take part in its very first Festival of Nations. The idea was to create a multi-ethnic celebration that reflected the contemporary Linwood reality. The event kicked off with a colourful Parade of Nations, with students and communities, proudly marching in their ethnic gear, preceded by their flag and placard bearer. “The range of colourful costumes worn by our students, staff and community, was simply breath-taking,’ said Navjot McCormack, Head of Linwood College’s English Language Learning Department, the festival organisers. The festival concluded with a Cultural Evening, a night of spectacular entertainment. “One parent said that it felt as if they were entering another world. I quite agree”, said Mrs McCormack.

A new school is coming Make it yours

Caring for your eyes A specialist eye service is now available for you at the Longhurst Health facility in Halswell. Experienced cataract surgeon and eye doctor Dr Antony Bedggood grew up in Christchurch, and trained in Otago, Wellington and Brisbane. His weekly visiting clinic is near to where you live and makes it easy for you to access the best care for common eye conditions such as cataract, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Good eyesight is very important to quality of life, especially as we get older, Dr Bedggood says, and it is particularly these three problems that can stop people driving, reading and doing things they enjoy. This is why the Halswell Eye Clinic offers free initial diagnostic scans, saving you up to $275. The clinic has the complex lasers,

scanners and other equipment needed for eye assessment and treatment, Dr Bedggood says, and offers free cataract checks and caring advice. Minor surgery is available on site, while larger operations when required are carried out at Southern Cross hospital. Those wanting to take advantage of these specialist eye services close to where they live can phone 0800 43 93 83 to make an appointment, without even needing a referral from their GP. The eye services complement the wide range of other health services offered in the purpose-built Longhurst Health premises, situated just off Halswell Junction Road, with great parking, a pharmacy and a café.
