„„ By Sarla Donovan WALTER ‘WALLY’ Wakefield was New Brighton through and through. The 83-year-old, who passed away on April 15, “absolutely adored” the suburb he lived in his entire life. Peggy Butterfield, of the New Brighton Museum, said what had happened to New Brighton over the years had “broken his heart.’’ Wally was a regular correspondent in the pages of the Pegasus Post, penning letters on topics from fishing on the pier to the election of the mayor. He told his wife, “things will happen, but not in our time Barb.” His son Paul told the Pegasus Post last week that his father used to “rub people up the wrong way now and then, but it was all for the greater good.” Wally was the third child of Huriwai ‘Lovey’ and Muriel ‘Bubs’ Wakefield, born on August 26, 1933. His parents were living in Pine Ave at the time. He made his first appearance as a singer on the “children’s session” of local radio station 3ZB with a rendition of South of the Border. •Turn to page 3

Tuesday April 25 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

When I was first starting out in journalism, I cut my teeth on this very paper. And one name I became very familiar with was Wally Wakefield. As many of you may recall, Mr Wakefield has been a long-time contributor of letters to the editor. I always looked forward to his name popping up in my inbox. He loved New Brighton and I was saddened to hear that he had died. In the article on the front page this edition this quote, which Mr Wakefield said to his wife, stood out to me “things will happen, but not in our time Barb.” Those in the eastern suburbs are very passionate about their community. There are many others like Mr Wakefield, who work so hard to ensure communities thrive. On page 5, we talk to another such person from the Aranui Community Trust. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

Trees to get the chop Wally farewelled „„ By Sarla Donovan TREES IN Burwood are breaking up berms and cracking footpaths. Two london plane trees will be given the chop as they are growing in berms which are too narrow to accommodate their size. The trees were planted in Lexington Pl as part of the new Westhaven subdivision in 1998 but due to their constrained location, “they Glenn are likely to create Livingstone on-going damage to infrastructure in the long term” according to city council consultant arborist Liz Warner. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board agreed to remove the trees after residents expressed concern about the damage being caused. The demise of the two london plane trees won’t be the end of the matter. The city council is to conduct a wider survey in Westhaven to identify other trees in need of removal.

The group performed at numerous concerts over the next few years, mainly at the Civic Theatre (now Isaac Theatre Royal) and during World War 2 sang at community get-togethers held to sell bonds for the war effort. With June’s departure, Don and Wally continued as The Wakefield Brothers and were later joined by the baby of the family, Gary, who at 12-years-old had a “voice of pure gold.” After winning a nationwide talent contest, the brothers were picked up by showbiz entrepreneur Trevor King and a tour of the South Island followed, starting in Bluff and finishing in Nelson. After his brother Gary died of a heart attack at 34, Don and Wally continued touring and singing well into the 1950s. Wally married his wife Barbara at the Catholic Church in Lonsdale St in 1957.

New school offers exciting opportunities We are not. We will still offer single sex education and remain separate. However, in building the schools next to each other, both benefit.

Shirley Boys’ High School head boy Connor Edwards says the school’s new combined campus offers plenty of advantages for students SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School is being presented with the same exciting opportunity as much of Christchurch – the chance to completely redesign and rebuild our facilities. THis will allow Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ to review a schooling system that has remained relatively unchanged for decades. By implementing modern strategies and techniques, the two schools will be able to work in conjunction to provide an education better suited to what today’s world demands of young people. By fusing these techniques with the values and culture the students of Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ possess, we will be able to pass students through a system tailor-made to mould them into well-rounded members of modern society.

Unfortunately, there are still some misconceptions. The idea of “modern learning” has come to carry a stigma of perceived chaos, however, this is simply not the case. Incorporating flexible learning environments allows teachers to modify their teaching style and environment to benefit the student and encourage learning in the truest sense of the word. Hopefully, these strategies and environments help students shift away from counting NCEA credits and instead learn for the sake of being able to apply knowledge. Another minor concern people may have is that they believe we are combining with Avonside to offer a co-ed school.

Obviously there’s bigger and better facilities, but students will also be advantaged by a similar timetable. Oversized classes can be spread more evenly across the two schools and more timetable flexibility is available as some courses will be run between the two schools. Finally, in the simplest terms, Shirley Boys’ High School will remain Shirley Boys’ High School. Our values, our culture, our pride and our people all make up the heart of the Shirley family. This is what makes us Shirley Boys’ and it remains unchanged regardless of where our site is or how flash our buildings are. The heart moves with the people and come 2019, will pump life around the new site at QE II.

Storm and flooding could have been a lot worse „„ By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk Management Officer THE MOTHER of all storms was predicted to hit the country during Easter. What actually occurred was a bit of a fizzer. Here in Christchurch there were a few people who would argue that what they experienced was hardly a fizzer but thankfully these incidents were relatively rare. Mainly on Good Friday our troops responded to six flooding events, one power line down and a couple of instances

where rain water and electrical systems were found to be incompatible. What the bad weather and the crisp mornings since did result in was the first use of the year of heating devices. This in turn caused a couple of callouts, a log fire smoking the house out in Quinns Rd, an oil fired home heating system refusing to close down and a bathroom heater on fire in Sumner. Those with fireplaces should have had the flu or chimney swept by now. If not please do it, might save red faces or worse in the near

future. Those who are using heat pumps perhaps for the first time need to know 21 deg C is accepted as the highest comfortable setting. Anything above that you’ll probably get an expensive shock when the power bill arrives. Hornby Hub got evacuated a couple of times this week, the first from a reported car fire in the rooftop car park that turned out to be steam and then an oven overheating in the supermarket on Easter Monday. A real nuisance to management, retailers and the public.

Our People


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 are 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.

I’m Jo Hayes, National’s list MP based in Christchurch East. I love being a part of this wonderful, tight-knit Christchurch East community. There’s so much going on that I just want to share a few highlights with you of what our community and Government are working on achieving together. Nga mihi mahana.

We will remember There is nothing more poignant on ANZAC Day than the sound of the bugle playing The Last Post. To New Zealand Defence Forces past and present, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. In recent years, it’s been a privilege for me to attend New Brighton RSA’s ANZAC service. This year, however, I’ll be at London’s ANZAC service while I attend an international conference on modern-day slavery: a timely reminder that we must remain vigilant against the threats posed to freedom in our world. Our Government is behind our defence forces: it’s committed to investing up to $20 billion into upgrading our capabilities over the next 15 years, to make sure that we’re equipped for modern-day conflict.

The Ode E kore ratou e koroheketia Penei i a tatou kua mahue nei E kore hoki ratou e ngoikore Ahakoa pehea i nga ahuatanga o te wa. I te hekenga atu o te ra Tae noa ki te aranga mai i te ata Ka maumahara tonu tatou ki a ratou. Ka maumahara tonu tatou ki a ratou. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. We will remember them.

Tackling family violence The Government is working hard to redesign the way our system understands, prevents, and responds to family violence in our communities. That’s why it’s good to see a Christchurch family violence prevention programme get a $680,000 funding boost.

Thank-You Fest Kudos to the Cantabrians who organised Thank You Fest at the end of March, in order to show our appreciation to all the migrant workers who have tirelessly toiled to rebuild Christchurch. Yes, the next time we see a road cone or a detour it will be too soon, but spare a thought for those who have left homes and families – many of whom haven’t been home for several years – to help us put this broken city back together. The Hon. Nicky Wagner and I attended the festivities, along with Filipino Ambassador Jesus S. Domingo, and it was a fantastic afternoon!

Lots going on in Christchurch East Earlier this month I attended the Regenerate Christchurch meeting at Haeata Community Campus, then the mayor’s/ councillors’ scone bake-off in Wainoni. Definitely some baking talent there! It was a pleasure to attend the New Brighton Art Gallery art awards and see all the inspirational work of local artists, and also to head out with the local Community Watch on a Friday night. All round, it’s wonderful to see community spirit going strong in Christchurch East.

Salt Water Pools a winning idea I’m delighted that CCC has confirmed funding for phase one of the Salt Water Pools in New Brighton in its Draft Annual Plan. It’s a positive for everyone and will definitely be a draw card for visitors to the area. We certainly need a project like this - and many more - to lift the spirits of New Brighton residents.

Please come along and see me. I’ll be parked in my van on Friday 28 April at: 1) Preston`s subdivision By Marshlands School on Te Korari Street Time: 8.30 - 9.30am 2) Parklands Outside sports field, opposite shopping centre Time: 10-11am 3) Shirley Burwood Park by Shirley Rugby Grounds, New Brighton Road Time: 11.30am -12.30pm 4) New Brighton Next to Ray White offices Time: 12.45 - 1.45pm 5) Wainoni Marae on Pages Road (out the front) Time: 2-3pm 6) Richmond Stanmore Road, outside of the park and opposite New World Time: 3.30-4.30pm Please phone our office on 03 384 9459 to book. See you there!

Green Ribbon Awards

The Integrated Safety Response (ISR) pilot is already making a big difference. It’s helped more than 24,000 people since it was launched in July 2016, through 8000 targeted family safety plans. In some cases it has prevented serious harm or death.

The 27th annual Green Ribbon Awards recognise outstanding work to protect and enhance the environment, and are a great way to showcase an impressive array of initiatives making a difference to our natural assets and wildlife. Finalists will be invited to a banquet night at Parliament.

ISR supports the Government’s broader family violence work programme.

Fallen remembered Chisnallwood Intermediate head boy Thomas Hopgood writes about recent Anzac commemorations at the school

RESPECT: Chris Campbell of Canterbury Brass playing the Last Post and Reveille at the Shirley Boys’ High School Anzac commemoration service. ​

Shirley Boys’ honour sacrifice ON THE last day of term 1, year 9 and 13 Shirley Boys’ High School students filed into the school assembly hall for the 2017 Anzac commemoration service. Headmaster John Laurenson, whose relatives had fought in two world wars, emphasised that this was not an occasion to glorify war but to remind young people that what happened in the 20thcentury must not happen in the future. “Young people have the opportunity to prevent this,” he said. Guest speaker and Shirley old boy Lieutenant Michael Witty, 16 Field Regiment, Royal New Zealand Artillery, spoke of the continuing need to remember the sacrifices made in two world wars not just by service personnel but also by the merchant navy seamen who kept the supply lines open, the medical staff who attended the wounded and the civilian families who bore the brunt of the conflicts back home.

He also reminded the school that New Zealand soldiers have been deployed in Korea, Vietnam, East Timor and Iraq as well as providing rescue services such as were required after Cyclone Winston in Fiji in 2016 and also following the Kaikoura earthquakes that year. “Anzac Day is a commemoration for all who were involved in various conflicts.” Led by Jonathan Findlay, and accompanied by Alex McNeil and Tamatoa Tuhou, the school pipers played Amazing Grace as Mr Bell and year 9 student Jed Rimmer laid a wreath at the flagstaff. Head boy Connor Edwards read part of Laurence Binyon’s For the Fallen. Chris Campbell from Canterbury Brass played the Last Post and Reveille and the service concluded with the singing of the New Zealand National Anthem, led by the school choir.

ON APRIL 12, we had an assembly to remember those who fought in the Gallipoli Campaign, and to recognise the bravery of our soldiers. Our head boy made a speech about Anzac Day and why we remember those who risked their lives. Then the guest speaker, Reverend Major Kippax, spoke to us about peacekeeping and his time with the United Nations. Our deputy head boy and girl read the poem Why Wear a Poppy by Don Crawford. The flags were then lowered to halfmast while the Last Post was played and Binyon’s Lines read. The following day, the prefects and heads travelled to the Burwood War Memorial. There they were joined by Waitakiri Primary School, Burwood Playcentre and Lake Terrace Preschool, to remember the fallen Burwood men. The trumpeters were Lena Krakowiak (Wednesday) and Daniel Powley (Thursday). We wish Lena well as she plays for the Anzac day service at Diana Isaac Retirement Village on April 25 at 10am.

REMEMBRANCE: Daniel Powley played the trumpet at an Anzac commemoration service held at the Burwood War Memorial on the last day of term 1. ​

Food for those in need PAPERBACKS: Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside president Liz Shackelton and president elect Graeme Tapp sorting through books for the upcoming Bookarama sale.

Feel like a good read? Check out Bookarama VOLUNTEERS HAVE been sifting through a mountain of donated books for next week’s Bookarama. Organiser Lindsay Crossen said there are so many books, it takes at least 30 volunteers to go

through them all. The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside event will be held next week from Thursday to Sunday at Burnside High School with all profits going straight back to the community.

REDUCING FOOD waste and feeding the community is the goal behind City Harvest. City Harvest Food Rescue Canterbury aims to collect leftover and surplus food from retailers and gives them to community groups to then distribute to families and those struggling to make ends meet. The not-for-profit group has been operating in Canterbury for six months but a van is a new accessory, it has chillers inside and makes it easier for volunteers to collect food for those in need. The organisation’s co-founder John Milligan said there was so much food going to waste that people could eat. “City Harvest’s food rescue

programme makes an invaluable and important contribution to the community groups that are working hard to help those less fortunate,” Mr Milligan said. The food is weighed, sorted by volunteers and stored at the organisation’s Manchester St address overnight, community groups pick-up the food in the morning to give to members of the community in need. In the last month City Harvest has distributed more than 2200kg of food – the equivalent of 6330 meals. At the moment the group works with 12 different community groups and agencies but they hope to add more. Currently the Wishbone outlet at Jellie Park, New World in

Stanmore, Ilam, Northwood and South City are providing food for the organisation. Mr Milligan said having the support from these businesses is important for the group to provide for families. “It is all about resourcing as much nourishing food as possible . . . across New Zealand, 270,000 kids go to school every morning without breakfast or go to bed each night without dinner,” Mr Milligan said. City Harvest is working alongside Love Food Hate Waste, a national campaign backed by 60 councils including the city council and the Ministry of Environment to provide education and ideas to reduce food wastage.

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.

Introducing Sukin’s Ultra Hydrating Body Oil Soft, supple, incredibly hydrated skin – in winter? It’s totally achievable with our gorgeous Sukin Ultra Hydrating Body Oil. Lotions just don’t measure up in the chillier weather if skin is overly dry and needing some extra TLC. Delivering intensive daily hydration, our luxurious Ultra Hydrating Body Oil contains Sunflower, Jojoba, Rosehip, Marula Seed, Avocado and Soybean Oils. It glides on easily, is quickly absorbed and doesn’t leave an oily residue. This natural oil blend promotes a radiant appearance and can improve the texture of the skin. Added Calendula Flower Extract assists to soothe and revitalise dehydrated skin. This multi-use body oil, formerly called Wellbeing Body Oil, is ideal for those who prefer oils to creams or who

need extra hydration and softens skin from top to toe. It’s great for massage or as a bath oil, post-shaving or waxing and as a hand or foot treatment to soothe the skin. It can be added into your favourite Body Lotion or Cream for an extra hydrating boost, but we love adding a few drops to the bath, perfect for some winter pampering. Like all Sukin products, the range is free of sulphates, animal derivatives, parabens, propylene glycol, harsh detergents, mineral oils, triethanolamine, synthetic fragrances and parabens.
