Linwood College to relocate during rebuild „„ By Bridget Rutherford LINWOOD College will temporarily shift to the site of Avonside Girls’ High School while its whole school is rebuilt. Principal Richard Edmundson has announced the school would relocate to the Avonside Drive school in term 2, 2019, for the duration of its rebuild and redevelopment. Avonside Girls’ will be moving to its new school at QE II in early 2019, alongside Shirley Boys’ High School. Once it has moved, Linwood would move onto the site, which is largely made up of relocatable classrooms following damage in the February 22, 2011 earthquake. Mr Edmundson said they were very happy, as it would take a year off the construction time. It also meant there would be no disruption to the students’ learning during the build, he said. The move was expected to save $1 million, as there was no need for re-relocatable classrooms. Mr Edmundson said a transport plan would be developed with the Ministry of Education. The full-school rebuild is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. • Architect named, page 6

Tuesday June 27 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

WELL BLOW me over with a feather. The police came up with a good idea to stop the trouble at the Riccarton bus lounge – a bylaw. This would give them the power to arrest, apprehend or simply warn the people who play-up there; a constant source of pain for bus users. But now the city council (see page 5) says a bylaw could be in breach of The Bill of Rights, amongst other things. Why then would the police suggest it? Because a bylaw gives them more teeth to deal with the fights and intimidation that has beset the facility. Said a council report: “Case law suggests the council could potentially be exposed to a legal challenge as a result.” Show some teeth, get the bylaw in and solve the problems. – Barry Clarke

Teen ‘needs to be taught lesson’ „„ By Andrew King A YOUNG teenager arrested for recently robbing a service station had been through the youth justice system after holding up the same place last year. On June 15, masked, hammerwielding robbers struck Challenge Opawa, taking more than $6000 of cash and tobacco. Police have arrested two of the four suspects, aged 14 and 15, and are seeking two others. The two that were caught have been charged with aggravated robbery. Southern View has learned one of the group took part in the robbery of the service station in October. Police said they could not comment on that aspect of the case. The teenager participated in a community justice panel late last year. Hammers and a screwdriver were used as weapons in the October hold-up. A community justice panel puts offenders and victims in the same room to find a suitable punishment and help the offender make amends for the crime they have committed instead of putting young people through the court system.

SCARY: One of the hammer-wielding robbers told Challenge Opawa employee Ged Hilliard to back up or he would be killed.

Challenge Opawa staff member Ged Hilliard who was held up on Thursday said the teenager needs to be “taught a lesson.” “Sounds like he wants to be a criminal for life. So it is hard to tell how he will react to any form

of punishment,” he said. Mr Hilliard had a gut feeling when he was being robbed that one of the offenders was same as in October. “When it happened I thought, I’ve seen this before,” he said.

One of the hammer-wielding robbers told Mr Hilliard to backup or he would kill him. Two 13-year-old boys and a 15-year-old girl were charged with the aggravated robbery in October. They took about $5000 of tobacco and $300 cash. Service station manager Jean Fahey said it was disappointing the youth system for dealing with young offenders was not working in this case. She was involved in the community justice panel but cannot reveal what was said because it is confidential. “We won’t be involved in a community justice panel this time for this robber. There is obviously no point,” she said.


In Brief POOL DEMOLITION Demolition of the former Central New Brighton School pool will happen “as soon as possible.” The Ministry of Education say the site is currently in the disposal process after the SURF Community Trust, which planned to obtain a license to use the swimming pool, decided not to proceed with their application. PARK DEVELOPMENT Wainoni Park will have a new, full-sized basketball court by January after the CoastalBurwood Community Board gave the go-ahead last week. The court will shift from its current site to the car park next to the Aranui-Wainoni Community Centre. A new stormwater retention basin will also be built in the north-eastern corner of Wainoni Park. Work will begin in September. FUNDING FOR KINDERGARTEN South Brighton Kidsfirst Kindergarten has been given $3500 from the CoastalBurwood Community Board’s discretionary fund. The money will go towards new turf for the grassed play area and new blinds for the art and music rooms.

Star Media scoops awards

THE STAR has been judged the best of the best at the New Zealand Community Newspaper Awards. The Star, part of the Star Media Group, scooped the three top awards – best newspaper, most improved newspaper and it also took out the supreme award which covers newspapers, magazines and websites. Venetia Sherson who judged the supreme award category said: “The Star is bold in design and bold in attitude. The Star urges its readers to engage in debate and reflect on the issues it deems important to the community. “Strong grass roots reporting, and tight writing are the hallmarks of the paper. It tackles big subjects with a sure hand and features a good mix of civic issues, crime and community stories.” Mike Fletcher who judged the most improved newspaper category said of The Star: “The paper is a cracker. It is a joy to read. Judging by The Star’s pagination growth, the readers and advertisers like it and value it too. “The Star is filling a vital niche for news and views in Christchurch. Every page is attractive. Every page is interesting.” It was a big night for Star

Riccarton bus lounge bylaw plan hits snag „„ By Bridget Rutherford A BYLAW to curb anti-social behaviour at the Riccarton bus lounge would provide little benefit, and could be in breach of the Bill of Rights, a city council report says. The report on whether the anti-loitering bylaw idea had merit has been prepared for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to consider at its meeting this afternoon. It said a bylaw would not be appropriate to address the issues, wouldn’t offer any advantages over existing enforcement tools, and would likely be costly. It also said a bylaw could be in breach of the Bill of Rights Act, because it would regulate the movement of people, or their access to public places. “Case law suggests the council could potentially be exposed to a legal challenge as a result,” it said. Local police and the board asked staff to investigate introducing the bylaw to try and prevent youths from loitering

ISSUES: An antiloitering bylaw would be difficult and costly to implement, city council staff say. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN near the bus lounge and Division St. Since opening in 2015, the lounge had been a hot-spot for trouble-causing youths. Nearby businesses have had enough of them loitering and intimidating their customers. The report said a bylaw would not enable police to issue instant fines, so it provided little advantage to the tools they already had. City council staff were also

looking at whether the Trespass Act could be used to address the issue. But the report said it should only be used in “sufficiently serious circumstances” and could just push the problem elsewhere. Then, any breach of a trespass notice would result in a prosecution in the district or youth courts. The board will consider the report, and what to do with the

information at today’s meeting. A working group, made up of city council staff, HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board members, and representatives from nearby businesses and Westfield Riccarton, has been formed to come up with ways to deal with the loitering issue. It was looking into other options, including turning off the free Wi-Fi at the bus lounge, and installing security cameras.


In Brief NEW PLAY EQUIPMENT A new swing and slide will be installed at Picton Reserve in Riccarton. In December last year, the Central Riccarton Residents’ Association presented a deputation to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board requesting a swing and slide at Picton Reserve suitable for children under 10. The board allocated $11,600 to the purchase of the new equipment. CYCLEWAY UPDATE City council staff are currently working on the scheme design for the South Express cycleway’s Gilberthorpe to Templeton section of the route. This work follows on from the previous scheme option for that section of the route from Hagley Park to Gilberthorpe. Staff will then brief the HalswellHornby-Riccarton Community Board on the designs prior to public consultation. YOUTH REPORT Tomorrow the annual Youth Custody Index report will be released by students from Christ’s College and St Thomas of Canterbury. Christ’s College student Nuku Tau was involved in the project last year. He said the project is run by a group of senior students and is a collation of information regarding the state of youth in custody in New Zealand – both good and bad.

Linwood College design in hands of award-winner „„ By Bridget Rutherford AN award-winning company that designed the St Andrew’s College chapel and the bus interchange will do the architecture for Linwood College’s redevelopment. Architectus has been awarded the contract for the full-school rebuild and redevelopment. The company’s other projects include the bus interchange, St Andrew’s chapel, the central city’s new Knowledge Centre, and more than 30 school projects across the country. Company director Carsten Auer will be the lead architect. His previous work includes Lyttelton Primary School’s master plan, the city’s Innovation Precinct spatial framework, St Cuthbert’s College performing arts centre and Auckland Grammar School’s sports complex. He said schools were more than places to learn – they helped shape the identity of the community. So any design had to reflect that and the values and culture of the community. “This project is special not only for its scale but in particular for the strong pedagogical vision developed by the college

and the leadership role it is looking to undertake in the revitalisation of the eastern suburbs of Christchurch.” He said the project was personal for him as he lived

in Redcliffs, which was part of Linwood’s catchment, and he wanted to contribute to shaping the future of the school. “I believe the current college leadership is working success-

fully to rebuild the confidence of all of their community in what Linwood College has to, and can, offer.” Principal Richard Edmundson said the awarding of the contract

was a step forward. “We’re absolutely delighted to have someone of Carsten’s reputation and his work in understanding communities and how buildings can support the community,” he said. “It’s Linwood’s turn.” The school’s buildings have reached the end of their lifespan, and it has carried out significant consultation with the community on how it could look and feel better. Mr Edmundson said the current roll was 650, but the masterplan was being done for 1800. It wants to become the school of choice for students living in its catchment, including Sumner, Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant, and Lyttelton, many of whom travel to schools on the other side of town. Physical building work was expected to begin on site in 2019.

Disabled sculptor to go on dream trip A LONG-HELD dream is about to come true for the woman behind the South Brighton Sculpture Park. Bon Suter has developed a special bond with friend and fellow artist Donald Gibson over the past 25 years. Mr Gibson is blind, deaf and unable to talk but under Ms Suter’s patient tutelage he has developed into a talented sculptor. The pair have worked together often and slowly built up the South Brighton Sculpture Park but soon they’re going to swap the sand dunes of South Brighton for the shores of Hawaii. Ms Suter has an artist friend there who works with people with disabilities and has always promised to take Mr Gibson there to visit. “I’ve decided it’s time I made good on that promise,’’ said Ms Suter. “Donald is over the moon. He’s so excited but it’s probably really hard for him to believe it is actually going to happen till we

He will also spend some of the 10 days in Hawaii sculpting. “He’s going to take a whole lot of his carved stone hearts to Hawaii and give them to people he meets as a little gift.


“Donald has hardly any money so we’re trying to do a bit of fundraising to help pay for his expenses while he’s away. For him this really is a once in a lifetime trip.’’ Anyone keen to help with the fundraising effort should email Ms Suter on bonsuter@gmail. com.

„„ By Mark Thomas - Specialist fire investigator JUNE 14 was quite a busy day for city firefighters. Early morning the call came in to what eventually turned out to be a fatal fire on Barbadoes St, not far from the city fire station.  Two fire appliances attended and while they managed to rescue the occupant alive, his injuries were such that he passed away a few days later.  Within a minute of this incident, a house fire was reported in Peverel St, Riccarton.  A candle had been lit for a religious rite but the occupant had fallen asleep with it still burning.  A wall display ignited, in this case setting off a smoke alarm.  No real damage was done

here but both house occupants were taken to hospital with smoke inhalation. For the rest of the day, wild weather caused power lines to fall in several parts of town, trees to fall and in one instance in Spencerville, a trampoline went walkabout on to the road. Wild weather, or alternatively still, cold weather with associated frost will be the norm for the next eight to 10 weeks. This means home heating will at maximum usage.  Things like the metre/heater rule where nothing combustible should be placed closer than a metre from a heat source, care with fire ash – which burns down woodsheds, porches and garages every year, and not leaving the house while the dryer is operating all become more important than ever.

News SUCCESS: Ryman chairman Dr David Kerr presents the village of the year 2017 award to (left to right) sales advisor Claire Poulsen, clinical manager Jeannie Sales and village manager Diana Hanafin at the company’s annual awards ceremony.

Honours for retirement village AIDANFIELD is the home of Ryman Healthcare’s best retirement village – and the village is also the base of the company’s finest leader. THe Anthony Wilding retirement village has been named village of the year and registered nurse Ajay Philip honoured as leader of the year 2017 at the company’s annual awards ceremony. Ryman board chairman Dr David Kerr compared the village’s ability to thrive to its namesake Anthony Wilding, the champion tennis player and soldier killed in action during World War 1. “They’ve done remarkably well against some tough competition both internally and externally but maybe it’s that competition that is what makes them thrive just like their namesake,” Dr Kerr said when presenting the awards. Another big challenge occurred earlier this year when out-of-control bush fires ravaged the Port Hills, with the village’s response to that prompting a special mention from the judges. “The team kept calm and carried on, keeping residents happy but ready to evacuate if necessary.” The village won against the two other finalists, Edmund

You have won this award.” Manager Diana Hanafin praised Ajay Philip, who leads a team of caregivers, for his achievement as leader of the year after outgoing chief executive Simon Challies presented him with his award. “He is quietly calm and an incredibly capable nurse,” she said. “He gets a huge amount of commendation for everybody he cares for, especially those in palliative care, with relatives always mentioning Ajay.”

Port Hills fire cost $4.5m FIGHTING THE Port Hills fires cost the Department of Conservation more than $4.5 million. Two fires, several kilometres apart, started in early February this year; two days later they had combined. Helicopter pilot and ex-SAS soldier Steve Askin died when his chopper crashed trying to fight the fires. Nine houses were destroyed and two were significantly damaged. Hundreds of people were evacuated. DOC spokesman Andy Roberts said the department contributed more than $3.5 million in operational costs and $1 million in staff and other internal costs. This amounted to about half of last year’s firefighting costs of $8.7 million. “The department supplied more than 130 fully trained rural firefighters, including fire behaviour experts, air attack managers and sector leaders during the fires, which started in February and burned for two

months. “If we add in time spent on aerial mapping, incident planning and other background support roles, that would come to more than 11,000 hours of staff time, some of whom were on duty for up to 15 hours a day. This all amounts to about 50 per cent of the total costs incurred on the Port Hills fires, which destroyed some 1660ha.” DOC has to respond to fires within a 1km margin of protected areas. No public conservation land was burned in the Port Hills fire. DOC had also helped fight major fires at Broken River, Hawkes Bay, Hanmer and Queenstown during last summer’s fire season. More than 460 staff are fully trained to fight fires on or near conservation land. “DOC will always have an interest in rural fire and the threat it poses to the natural and heritage values that DOC is charged with protecting.

THE RICCARTON MARKET IS NOT CLOSING! During winter, as expected, the number of stall holders and the number of people coming to the market reduces but we still get in excess of 4,000 people coming every week. One of the strong points about the Riccarton Market is that both entry and parking is free to the public”.

Don’t believe everything that you hear! Despite numerous rumours the popular Riccarton Market is not closing. “It is easy to understand the confusion” says Craig Murphy, President of the Rotary Club of Riccarton. (The Riccarton Market is owned by the Riccarton Rotary Charitable Trust and managed by the Rotary Club of Riccarton). “With much publicity being given to the proposed new housing subdivision on some of the land currently occupied by the Riccarton Racing Club people have missed the point that not all of the land is going to be utilised. Over the next few years land will be progressively developed into residential sections along Yaldhurst Road and Steadman Road and then into other parts of the property. It does not however intrude into that portion of the land currently occupied by the Riccarton market”. Plans released by the developers, Ngai Tahu Properties, show the proposed subdivision being done over 6 stages which when completed will provide approximately 600 new residential sections. “In preparation for the development the Riccarton Market has reduced its footprint and condensed the number of stalls available. The Racing Club has offered other land closer to the entrance in exchange for land surrendered by the market. These new areas will be incorporated into the market over time” advises Ross Binning, Chair of Riccarton Rotary’s Market Committee. “By reducing the footprint now we have been able to provide additional parking for our customers making coming to the Riccarton Market even easier. Over the summer months we have been getting crowds in excess of 10,000 people every Sunday.


The Riccarton Market has been in operation for 29 years. Over that time it has moved location several times. From its origins as a ‘car boot sale’ located at the Riccarton Mall carpark, it moved to The Bush Inn, then outgrew sites at Riccarton High School and then at the University, relocating to the racecourse site more than 15 year ago. It has become an institution in Christchurch – described by the Christchurch City Council as ‘an icon’ for locals and tourists alike. It is the largest charity market in New Zealand and with room for over 300 stalls it is arguably the largest weekly market in the country. During this period Riccarton Rotary has donated more than $3 million to local charities and individuals as well as supporting other national and international projects especially at times of emergency. “It is disappointing that people still talk about the Riccarton Market closing” says Craig Murphy. “In many cases those people are directly associated with competitive markets around the city so they no doubt see it to their advantage by creating uncertainty about the future of the Riccarton Market. Be assured the Riccarton Market is here to stay. We have a secure long term arrangement over the Riccarton Park site and apart from some relatively minor redesign of the footprint over the next few years there is nothing that will change as far as our many loyal customers are concerned. They will be able to continue to come for their vegetables, meats, other food items, hardware, tools, furniture, plants, artworks, jewellery, cat and dog needs, clothing as well as to be entertained by the live music and stay and have their lunch from one of the numerous ethnic and specialised food and refreshment stalls located around the central ‘commons’.

Cashmere showed that last Wednesday with a 6-0 win over Christ’s College at the Christchurch Football Centre moving them into third position on the table. Coach Craig Squire said it was exactly the type of play needed to get them to nationals which runs from September 4-8. Eddie Wilkinson scored a hattrick, captain Lyle Matthysen​ netted two and Henry Mabin scored one. Now they turn their attention to fourth-placed St Thomas tomorrow night. “The plan now is to build on this and be a very difficult team to break down, while still maintaining the attacking flair and talent that the boys have,” he said. St Thomas coach Richard Washington said the recent loss 3-1 to Lincoln was tough, particularly when they had to hand the Connetics Shield over, but he expects them to bounce back.



SPORTS SPORTS SELECTED: Halswell tae kwon do instructor Tomo Shibata, alongside 58 others, will head to Dublin, Ireland to fight for his country.


GOOD WIN: Lyle Matthysen​ scored a brace in the 6-0 win over Christ’s. Now they look to take points from fourth-placed St Thomas tomorrow night. “I know the boys’ attitude will be completely different for Cashmere and hopefully we can put up a good fight,” he said. Squire said it will be another must-win to keep national hope alive. “It is vital that we keep winning as all the teams are wanting one of the top four places for qualification to nationals.” Nationals will feature 32 of the best teams from across the country split into eight pools of four. Four of the 32 will be

selected from the Christchurch competition. The top two from each pool will progress into the top 16, while the rest will play for positions 17-32. Points table 1. St Andrew’s, 19pts; 2. Lincoln, 17pts; 3. Cashmere, 16pts; 4. St Thomas, 15pts; 5. Burnside, 14 pts; 6. CBHS, 12; 7. Shirley, 10pts; 8. St Bede’s, 10pts; 9. Middleton, 8pts; 10. Riccarton, 8pts; 11. Christ’s, 4pts; 12. Papanui, 3pts; 13. Rangiora, 3pts.

“I have put in a lot of hard work to get here and I am very excited to have the opportunity to head to the world champs,” he said. Shibata will compete in the individual male pattern category. Pattern is a showcase of techniques and skills – some say it is like fighting an imaginary opponent. “I don’t like that comparison,” Shibata laughed. Shibata started doing tae kwon do in 2006 and gained his 4th Dan Black Belt in December 2016.   He has competed in numerous regional and national competitions as well as representing New Zealand at the 2012 and 2014 world cups.

„„ By Andrew King TOMO SHIBATA’S seven-year wait to attend the tae kwon do world championships is finally over – he has been selected to compete in October. The Halswell instructor, alongside 58 others, will head to Dublin, Ireland to fight for his country. He said when the email appeared in his inbox, he was nervous to open it, previously the emails had contained disappointing news. “When I read it my hands were shaking and my heart was pounding. I was like finally, I’ve made it,” he said. He hones his craft every day of the week balancing running classes and training.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... Slow-cooked beef cheek

Mu shu pork (Serves 4 )

(Serves 4 )


Beef cheeks naturally contain a lot of collagen which, when cooked long and slow, converts into a luscious rich texture. The cheeks will be extra tender and flavoursome if prepared a day in advance and will taste even better. Ingredients 6 cups Beef stock 3 Tbsp Rice bran oil ½ cup Carrot, diced ½ cup Onion, diced ½ cup Celery, diced 3 Garlic cloves, peeled and sliced 1 Tbsp Tomato paste 2 cups Red wine 1 Bay leaf 4 sprigs Fresh thyme 1 sprig Fresh rosemary, small 1.2 kgs Beef cheeks, 1 cheek per serve 1 tsp Salt Directions Heat the oven to 140 deg C. Bring the beef stock to the boil. Heat the oil and fry the


vegetables, garlic and tomato paste for 10 minutes to lightly caramelise. Turn the heat up to high, add the red wine and reduce by half. Season the beef cheeks with salt and pepper then place them in an ovenproof casserole (or use a slow cooker). Add in the reduced wine and vegetables. Add the herbs and cover with beef stock. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook in the oven for 3 hours. To make the glazing sauce,

Gold OR GREEN Kiwifruit Envy Apples Shanghai Bok Choy or Pak Choi Loose Ginger Courgettes Rolled Beef Roast Chicken Breasts

strain off half the cooking juices into a saucepan, bring this to the boil and reduce until thick and syrupy. To serve, gently reheat the cheeks in the remaining cooking juices. When hot, carefully lift them out and place them into the glazing sauce. Smother with sauce and serve with creamy potato mash and a warm salad of greens (I have steamed brussels sprout leaves, peas, and broad beans, then tossed them with a little olive oil and sea salt flakes).

Cut away the stalks then thinly slice into strips. Mix all the pork seasoning ingredients together, then stir through the sliced pork. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok until it begins to smoke. Add the beaten eggs and slowly stir to scramble. Remove from the wok and reserve. Heat the remaining oil in a wok. Add spring onion and ginger before adding the seasoned pork. Quickly stir-fry for several minutes until the pork is just cooked. Add mushrooms, bamboo shoots and greens. Stir fry for 2 minutes before adding the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine or sherry, and a pinch of salt. Toss well before returning eggs to the wok to reheat. Serve immediately.

Parents of Year 6 students are encouraged to take a good look at their child’s full primary school when choosing schooling for 2018. Why change schools when you don’t need to? Full Primary schools are tried and tested and have developed in innovative and cost effective ways since their inception in 1877. They are as important to the provision of education in 2018 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful? • They have evolved over time and have responded to the different demographic changes since 1877. • They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for families and respond to community needs. • They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know curriculum levels from Level 1 – 5 who have had the same teacher training as teachers in other Year 7 and 8 school types. • Teachers in the student’s current full primary school know about individual students learning progress and learning style from Year 1 – 8.

What does the research tell us about the learning needs of Year 7 and 8 students? • Curriculum that is relevant, challenging, integrative, and exploratory • Multiple learning and teaching approaches • Assessment and evaluation programmes that promote quality learning • Organisational structures that support meaningful relationships and learning

• Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture, innovation and child centred learning sum up full primary schools.

• Educators who value working with the age group

• Year 7 and 8 students are the leaders and role models along with the adults in a full primary school with opportunities to nurture Year 1 – 6 students.

• School-wide efforts and policies that foster health, wellness, and safety

• School organisation in a full primary school fits the needs of students not the timetable. • All Year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership opportunities, sporting opportunities, school community job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model expectations. They are seen by others in the school as the leaders and younger students look up to them. • These opportunities and strategies to build leadership, key competencies and resilience are available to all Year 7 and 8 students in a full primary.

• Courageous, collaborative leadership

• Multifaceted guidance and support services • School-initiated family and community partnerships

Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school type or school buildings that make the difference for Year 7 and 8 students. It is instead the innovative approach to learning and the attitude of professionals toward this group of students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the leadership, teachers and non-teaching staff are committed to the social and emotional development of this group of learners. Full Primary Schools are providers of Year 7 and 8 education in every way that other types of schools are.

And also

• From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’, there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching which students receive at all levels and stages of schooling is of major importance in influencing achievement outcomes for students. • While productive and positive student-teacher relationships are identified as an important characteristic of highly performing schools catering for middle years’ students, it needs to be acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders at all levels of schooling is what works. • It is therefore debateable whether at least some aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling approaches focusing on quality teaching and enhanced learning’ rather than on school type. Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to support learning and what happens across the school to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs of Year 7 and 8 that makes the difference. Not school type. The research on middle schooling and its implications to provide quality education to Year 7 and 8 students is as applicable to full primary school as it is for other schooling types.

A bright future at Shirley and Avonside With a brand new state-of-the-art campus on their horizon and a host of new opportunities to offer students, it is a great time to enrol at Shirley Boys’ High School and Avonside Girls’ High School. The two schools will relocate to their new site, at QEII Park, in time for Term 2 of 2019, so students who enrol for next year will be at the new schools in their second year of high school. Being able to start from scratch has enabled the architects to create the ‘ultimate campus’. It features a large Performing Arts Centre (with a 750-seat and a 100-seat theatre), three full-sized gyms (complete with climbing wall), a cultural space and four sportsfields. Each school will also have a long list of its own specialist learning facilities, including: • Electronics Lab • Recording Studios • Editing Suites • 2D and 3D Printing Room • 6 Science Labs • An Indoor Fitness Centre Avonside Girls’ principal Sue Hume says the students will spend most of their day in a single sex environment. “That’s important to us. The research clearly shows that single sex education benefits both girls and boys...boys do better academically and girls participate more when they have space to learn and focus away from the opposite gender,” says Sue Hume. Shirley Boys’ High School headmaster

Avonside Girls’ principal Sue Hume and Shirley Boys’ High School headmaster John Laurenson

John Laurenson says being co-located will enable both schools to offer their students more. “We’ll be able to work together to deliver more specialist subjects so we can widen our curriculum and we will be able to co-operate on things like school productions. Obviously there will be lots of social and educational advantages to this.” A large bus network is being created to help make travelling to and from the campus easy, and the schools are also working with local authorities to create safe cycling and walking routes to the site. While the new zone hasn’t been finalised yet, the schools’ intake for next year will be based on their current zones. That is good news for any families considering out-of-zone enrolments. Much of the school’s existing zones now sit in the residential red zone so there is plenty of space.
