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 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. • Turn to page 7

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 1) 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

Jellie Park cycle incentive cut

By Julia Evans SPENDING on cycleways in Christchurch has topped $156 million. But the city council will not continue an incentive programme to get people cycling to Jellie Park Sports and Recreation Centre because there was not enough uptake during the trial. And Fendalton-WaimairiHarewood Community Board members can’t see the logic behind it. During February, to coincide with the Cycle Aotearoa Programe, the trial was run that if you cycled to Jellie Park five times you received a free pool entry and bottle of water. It was deemed a success by board chairman David Cartwright as well as board member and chairwoman of the Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project committee, Bridget Williams. Ms Williams said the initiative provided “simple wins” such as health benefits, easing traffic and boosting cycle numbers. It was intended after the trial that the scheme would be rolled out across all city council sports and recreation centres, such as Pioneer and Graham Condon.

CYCLE: Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project committee chairwoman Bridget Williams wants to see more people cycling to Jellie Park. PHOTO: ANDREW KING But she said a month was not long enough and it would take time for public awareness to build. “I don’t see any harm in it continuing, people just need a wee bit of a carrot . . . good things take time,” Ms Williams said. And Mr Cartwright also said he didn’t understand why it wasn’t continuing. “We’ve spent a significant

amount of money putting cycleways in, it’s a good way to get people using them,” Mr Cartwright said. He said making people leave their cars at home required good infrastructure and a change in attitude. The community board received a report from city council western area operations manager Martin McGregor. It said there were 117 visits

to Jellie Park by bicycle in February. “The programme ran smoothly and had a small to moderate uptake,” Mr McGregor said in the report. But he said the uptake didn’t suggest there is a demand for a permanent incentive. Though it will run again next February at all centres. “This trial has shown that run in conjunction with the nationwide awareness programme during the month of February engagement in the idea of cycling to our centres can be maximised,” he said. The incentive proved there were at least 100 empty car parks that would otherwise have been full during a peak summer month, Mr Cartwright said. The community board also funded bicycle locks for Jellie Park. They are being used 30 times a week and will soon be available at all centres.

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.

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

s Your Local Views some point to motor vehicles to reduce the number competing with the cycleway. However, the best solution would have been to build a separate cycle path on this route like the rest of the cycleway and that would shut up the forever moaning car drivers who see it as their right to drive everywhere and at speeds that suit them.

Readers respond to last week’s article regarding a city council plan to lower speed limits around Canterbury University to make it safer for cyclists.


Vaughan Rowe – that won’t make the roads any wider, nor people drive safer, nor cyclists ride safer! Sadly.

Gayle Elizabeth Lord – At the rate they are going the city council will have the whole city at 30km. There are schools all over the city without a lower speed limit so why do university students need this? Motorists need to pay attention and cyclists need to also. Have seen some dangerous behaviour from both.

SLOW DOWN: The proposed area around the university where the speed limit could be reduced. ​


Pamela Neil – Cyclists need to pay registration! That is being considered in Brisbane. They use the roads for nothing!

millions by building new ones. The university has a much larger student body than schools do and have students coming and going all day. The entrances to schools are busy at 9am and 3pm, they have lower speed limits at those times as well as road patrols, which is enough.

schools too as recommended by the World Health Organisation. Drivers just need to get used to this speed limit, as they have done in Europe. The traffic keeps moving, but at a safe speed.


James David Foote – Cyclists pay for the roads too. We pay our taxes, we pay GST every time we buy something. We live in our homes that we pay our council rates on. Most of us also own a car that we pay our registration on as well as fuel taxes when we fill up. By promoting and encouraging cycling, you add capacity to roads without having to spend

Trevor Taylor – I think we should have someone carrying a red flag walk in front of every car and truck in Christchurch. That way we will be able to eliminate all vehicles crashes. Nothing is more important than being safe.

Wendy Charlotte Olivier – I have to laugh at this idea, people don’t even keep in the speed limits in a school zone. Bicycles are not meant to be on the roads, it is not fair to put that responsibility on a driver as well as all the other rules they have to keep to. I think cyclists have too much privilege and I think this needs to stop.

Lucinda Rees – How about 30km/h speed limits outside

Jason Gemmill – Absolutely insane! Total madness!


Tasty Bites

Anna Henderson – Yes good idea. A large number of university students cycle (which is a great thing). It’s also very much encouraged by the uni which puts the parking prices up exceedingly high on purpose to discourage driving. Two of my flatmates have been knocked off their bicycles by cars who were completely in the wrong and just didn’t look. At least if they’re going slower it might help. Graham Batchelor – Slowing traffic on this part of the Unicycle should have been part of the original design. I also think that this route which is used as a rat run from Clyde Rd to Kilmarnoch St be blocked at

David Butler – Doesn’t work here, you have the chance now to build proper cycle paths like Amsterdam. Cars and bicycles don’t mix. Tanya Hyde – Not sure if lowering the speed limit would help decrease the number of accidents as it’s ignorant/ inconsiderate driving or cycling that’s the cause. But if a lower speed limit reduces the seriousness of accidents then that’s a start. But we need better education for both motorists and cyclists on keeping them safe on the road. If both switched places for the day they would understand the other side. I drive and cycle in the city and I find it scary being a cyclist and uneasy driving around cyclists. Mel Schmidt – Making the speed limit for cars lower won’t affect the sheer arrogance of cyclists who think the road is theirs.

Hornby High School Years 7 – 13

Commitment, Achievement, Resilience, Respect

Rebuild Dozen venture into the hills mirrors school’s strengths Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai ki Te Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the Hornby High School community. Our school rebuild is now well under way. Leighs contractors are established on site and the demolition of the administration building and library has been completed. Site works are the current focus of activity with excavation of foundations and steel placing progressing well. It is becoming increasingly easy to see the scale of the first of the new buildings that we will live and learn in. Every school is of course more than just its buildings: it is the people and the activities that take place within. He tangata he tangata he tangata. Every school offers a huge range of opportunities, and Hornby High School is no different. In a recent newsletter column I reflected on the huge range of activities on offer to our students. Last week I spent some time at our annual Year 10 camp and I was reminded (as if I needed to be) of the many outstanding students who live and work daily at Hornby High School. The camp presents students with opportunities to challenge themselves, opportunities to step outside their personal comfort zone and experience personal growth, and almost without exception they take those opportunities. This term we have had students engaged in the application of new technology, and our Year 7, 8 and 9 students have been learning about business and marketing as they progress through their business kete. A special highlight for us all was an address from Janine Morrell-Gunn (Hornby High School’s first ever Head Girl), and Jason Gunn, both outstanding examples of how we can combine creativity, business, and a sense of moral purpose, to the benefit of our communities. They were a true inspiration to us all. The business kete study ends on the last Wednesday of the term, 6 July, 11am to 2pm, with our special market day which is open to everyone. The day ends with a special celebration of Matariki, and our arts evening filled with wonderful examples of student creativity, and again we extend an open invitation to everyone. We have been thrilled to see our Kapa Haka group rebuilding its momentum under the guidance of our new tutor. Term 2 also saw the start of our Pasifika homework club operating Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 3.30pm to 4.30pm, every week, and also the Pasifika PowerUp programme, every Monday 5-7pm. As a school we fit all of this in while still maintaining and improving a rich programme of academic learning. Our implementation of the Manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create Share) using the power of digital technology is having significant impact on student learning, and the data collected by Auckland University’s Woolf Fisher Research Centre continues to show great gains in achievement. Once again thank you to every whanau that has been able to invest in a Chromebook for your tamariki. Your support does make a difference.

Twelve Hornby students recently took part in a three-week Wilderness Adventure as part of the Project K programme. Project K is sponsored by the Graeme Dingle Foundation and designed for Year 10 students. It has four stages: an induction; a three-week Wilderness Adventure during which the students are taken into the mountains for three weeks; a Community Challenge; and a 12month Mentoring Partnership with trained adult mentors. The students tell us that being on the programme increases their self-belief and confidence and it has been proven to significantly improve academic performance.

Standing at rear are students Alyssa Wright, Ruth Espie, Caleb Niewenhuize, Joseph Fraser, Noah Sefo, Samuel Weir, Aurora Gray and Donovan Brown.

Students help out in Vietnam At the start of the Easter holidays, 13 students and two teachers travelled to Vietnam. The first part of the trip was a community project for which $1500 had been raised by the group prior to departing for Vietnam, to build a kitchen in the house of a family living in Pung village. After three days the group returned to Hanoi and then went onto Halong Bay for a welldeserved break. The students commented that it was a worthwhile and eye-opening experience.

$15k to help speed up church restoration


• From page 1 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, Halswell-


SIX YEARS after St Peter’s Anglican Church was destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake it is still a long way off from being restored. But the Halswell-HornbyRiccarton Community Board is helping the process move along after approving a $15,000 grant. The money is going towards compliance costs, such as fire, electrical and plumbing compliance as well as building and contract work consent. It is only half the $30,000 funding asked for. Fundraising for the $2 million needed for the repair started in November. About $500,000 has so far been found. Reverend Nick Mountfort told Western News they hope to have the church restored by 2019. The resource consent for the rebuild of the historic church was first approved by the city council and Heritage New Zealand in 2015. But the official campaign to raise funds for the rebuild did not begin until November last year.

EXCITING: Reverend Nick Mountfort stands with a pile of stones to be used for the restoration. Rev Mountfort said while the church started fundraising immediately after the resource consent was granted, it did not have a website and booklet ready for the official launch. The project will together cost $3.9 million, $1.5 million above the insurance pay-out. Undamaged stone walls will be strengthened to maintain the original architecture of the church while the north and south transept will be

extended to allow for more amenities that were not in the old building. The extension of the northern transept will open up a gathering space including kitchen facilities. In addition, the southern transept will allow space for choir and worship space. “The church is beautiful but there was no toilet or space where you could have morning tea,” Rev Mountfort said.

News   FLAME FILES RECOGNITION: Kendo coach Karl Hitchcock with TV3’s news anchor Mike McRoberts receiving his award. Right: He is pictured with members of the Canterbury Kendo Club.

BLAZE: A man died after a fire in the City Central Motel Apartments.

Fashion Film inspires volunteer’s Gardening 30 years of kendo

By Julia Evans WITH A name like Hitchcock, it doesn’t come as a surprise it was a film that inspired the Merivale coach who received an award for his volunteer work. First seeing kendo on television in the early 70s, it wasn’t until Karl Hitchcock saw the first Star Wars film in 1977 that he began practising the sport himself. “When I saw it first, it was something I wanted to do and then when the Star Wars movies came out, it made me want to do it even more,” he said. Although he did admit the early Star Wars films didn’t

really get kendo right – it was 1999’s The Phantom Menace that was choreographed by a kendo instructor. “It was the only good thing about that movie,” he said. Fast forward 11 years and in 1988 Mr Hitchcock co-founded the Canterbury Kendo Club – Sei Tou Ken Yu Kai – with Alex Bennett. Last week during Volunteer Week after almost 30 years and 12,000 hours of dedication to kendo, Mr Hitchcock received an award for his service. When it began, Canterbury Kendo was one of the first kendo clubs in New Zealand and the first in the South Island.

“Back in the early days there weren’t many people doing it,” Mr Hitchcock said. Now the club has up to 40 regular members, which the club puts down to his commitment to the sport. Mr Hitchcock coaches both children and adults classes for eight hours a week on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the club’s Sockburn dojo. For Mr Hitchcock, there is a very deep connection to the sport – he finds it centres and relaxes him, helping with his bipolar disorder. “I use kendo as a mirror for my mental health … kendo evens me out,” he said.

Wild weather puts firefighters to the test 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.

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’.

Boys’ High bench clinches win

Tuesday June 27 2017




By Andrew King LAST-MINUTE heroics are starting to become the norm for Christchurch Boys’ Alex Harford after a late penalty sealed a 13-11 win for the defending champions against Nelson College on Saturday. Harford came off the bench onto the wing, and with 3min to go, slotted the match-winner from 35m on the angle. He had only been on the field for about 10min before lining up the vital nudge. Last week it was Rico Syme who broke the hearts of the opposition with a scintillating 50m dash before Harford kicked the extras to beat St Andrew’s 25-23. Coach Danny Porte said it was a “faultless kick.” “It shows the depth we have in the squad, it is about the full 22 guys not just the starting 15,” he said. The win keeps CBHS at the top of the table. They head into next weekend with a bye, but the team are far from getting a break. “We have Blackrock College from Ireland on Thursday then we face a challenge from Otago Boys’

HARD TO STOP: Replacement prop Murphy Kupe charges into the Nelson defenders. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

High next Tuesday as a school exchange game,” Porte said. Burnside will have to travel north to play Marlborough Boys’ after a 43-12 defeat at the hands of Christ’s on Saturday, while St Bede’s will look to bounce back after their first ever defeat to Rangiora High (21-7) –when they take on Mid-Canterbury Combined. St Thomas will look to put some pressure on the top four when they take on a rampaging


Rangiora this weekend after having a bye on Saturday. Rangiora will be hard to stop after recording their first ever win over St Bede’s on Saturday 21-7. • Oops: Last week we printed two photos with the wrong caption on them. In the CBHS article, we said a try and breakaway was by Jordan Jennings. We were wrong. Both pictures were of Jack Harris. Sorry Jack!



Fighters selected SPORTS

By Andrew King TWO fighters from International Taekwon-do in Burnside have been selected to compete overseas in October. Kris Herbison and Callum Woodill will fight for their country at the world championships in Dublin, Ireland alongside 57 others. For Herbison, it is a welcome return to the international scene after receiving a silver medal in the team power event in 2009 held in Argentina. Strong competition and injuries kept him from selection until this year and he said he is really excited to get back into it. “I have been putting in a lot of hard yards in the gym and working on my skills,” he said. He will compete in the individual male power category, which only two from New Zealand could enter, and is hoping to make the power team as well. The power event tests athletes by getting them to break a number of boards. Woodill will compete in the individual sparring event and is hoping to be included in the power and special techniques teams as well. Those teams will be selected closer to the tournament.

FIGHT: Callum Woodill (left) and Kris Herbison (below) have been selected to compete in the Taekwon-do World Championships in Dublin, Ireland in October.

Special techniques get competitors to kick targets up to 2.5m in the air. “It is not something I would enter, I don’t think I can even jump half as high as that,” Herbison said. New Zealand was the top country at the championships held in Italy in 2015, third in 2013 in Spain and triumphed when it was held in Wellington in 2011.

DEFENCE: Lincoln (left) will defend the shield against Burnside tomorrow night after winning it from St Thomas last week.

Burnside High gets BUSINESSES second shot at shield By Andrew King BURNSIDE HIGH have their second chance in three weeks tomorrow night to get their hands on the Connetics Shield, which is considered the Ranfurly Shield of high school football. Lincoln High beat St Thomas last week 3-1 taking the shield with them. Burnside will play Lincoln at 4pm at the Christchurch Football Centre, where all league games are played this year. Burnside lost 3-1 to St Thomas two rounds ago but now have another shot at the shield. Coach David Williams said he thinks his boys have what it takes. “Lincoln will be a hard opposition, so to get a win will mean again playing some very good football,” he said. He said the main goal for the squad is to qualify for the national tournament in Napier and taking three points


tomorrow night would leave them a small chance of doing so. St Thomas will have a hard task ahead of them tomorrow when they play Cashmere High at 7.30pm. Cashmere are third while St Thomas dropped from first to fourth after their loss as well as relinquishing the shield. The battle of Suva St between Middleton Grange and Riccarton High ended in a 2-2 draw last week, which Middleton coach Isaac Stanton said was a fair result. “They finished the chances we gave them, early in each half. We had the character and determination to come back to level it each time,” he said. Middleton will take on Shirley at 4pm, while Riccarton will have Christchurch Boys’ High at 5.45pm. Boys’ High will look to bounce back after last week’s loss to Burnside 2-1.​

highlights BHS Stage Challenge 2017 Tragic mine disasters and depletion of fish due to pollution and over fishing were two strong themes portrayed by the Raw and Open Stage Challenge teams at Burnside High School this year resulting in first place for Raw and second place for Open. The Raw team, comprised of Year 9 and 10 students, gave a moving performance based on two of New Zealand’s tragic mine disasters, Strongman and Pike River. There was a personal connection between both as one of the students’ great grandfather was in the Strongman mine disaster in 1967, that killed 19 men and another student’s brother was killed in the Pike River mine explosion.

Mr Holstein Thank you to everyone who attended our Open Night on Tuesday 16 May. We trust you enjoyed your time with us, learned more about our school, and gained an insight into Burnside High School. I am grateful to the 250 volunteer student guides who were proud to showcase their school to you. Burnside provides an excellent learning environment and makes a positive difference to people’s lives. We pride ourselves on being a successful school that is highly regarded in the community for its high-quality, values-based learning and specialist facilities. We are a larger school with a community feel, offering a wide range of opportunities in a safe, friendly atmosphere, and with high standards and expectations of ourselves and our students. Burnside High School bases its culture on a vision of ‘personal excellence and caring for others’. The way students and staff act, feel and think about themselves, and about others, is determined by our key values of being respectful, having pride and striving to excel. Our size and all the advantages that this brings is a point of difference and is what makes this decile 8, state, co-educational school special. The six significant features that make Burnside High School a leader of learning are: • We are a centre for academic excellence with an emphasis on high-quality teaching practices and outstanding achievement. • Our roll of around 2,500 students enables us to provide an extensive, diverse and specialised curriculum that caters for and challenges students of all abilities. • We provide an exceptionally wide range of cocurricular opportunities (music, drama, dance, clubs and sports) for students to enjoy, learn new skills, take leadership roles, and achieve at a high level. • We are a caring school where students are known and supported as individuals in a positive, inclusive environment. • We value effective relationships with parents and the wider community to improve outcomes for students. • We are innovative and responsive to the evolving nature of society through continuous and rigorous review and evaluation of our systems, practices and procedures. Burnside High School, in partnership with parents and caregivers, has the proven ability to assist students develop the skills, attributes, and attitudes to make a success of their lives in the workplace, in the community, and as members of supportive and loving families. I believe in, and am proud of, Burnside High School and feel privileged to be its principal. Phil Holstein, Principal

When we discovered the connection, we realised we had to tell these stories and with the blessing of the families, the team of 100 students won the competition with a powerful and moving performance.

Open Division Second Place.

The following night the seniors performed in the Open section of Stage Challenge. Again the team of 100 performed with passion to warn us of the dangers of pollution and overfishing in our oceans. Clever recycling of costumes of plastic bags and black fabric depicting an oil spill emphasised the theme that you can’t eat money and we need to look after our environment now. Both teams were student-led and the stringent rehearsal schedules and commitment to their teams resulted in deserved results and a greater understanding of two significant events in New Zealand’s history as well as an appreciation of the risks of exploitation of our reserves.

Raw Division Winners.

Sports Leadership running for CanTeen On the 15th of May the Burnside High School Sports Leadership classes participated in a 24 hour run to raise funds for CanTeen. This charity supports teenagers suffering from cancer to continue to enjoy life and everything it has to offer. At 3:15pm on the Monday, the continuous run began with fifty students and two teachers making up ten teams who would pass the metaphorical baton to keep moving around the one kilometre track for 24 hours. Many pupils had gained sponsorship per km to help motivate them round the track - with the aid of head torches in the darkness of the night. However, the real motivation came in the form of all the supporters who came and joined in, with staff, ex-pupils and hundreds of Burnside High students jumping on the track throughout the day. There was a very special appearance from the principal Mr Holstein himself, donning his running gear and showing the students how it is done, this provided a big boost for the weary runners. By 3:15pm on the Tuesday, after some much needed complimentary massage the whole team joined together to complete one last kilometre around the

Canteen Runners.

now muddy and worn track. Many of the runners having completed full marathons and beyond, stumbled over the finish line to a well deserved applause from supporters, having completed hundreds of laps and raised thousands of dollars for CanTeen. All agreed the tired bodies, sore muscles and blisters were a small price to pay to bring a little light to their fellow teens struggling against cancer.

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,

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.

Burnside High takes on Disney classic


By Julia Evans FOUR MONTHS of preparation will come to fruition when Burnside High School performs its musical production of the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. Performances start next month but if you drive past the school now you might notice a container sitting outside the Aurora Centre. Inside is the secret to the production – the original set used in the 2006 Showbiz production of Beauty and the Beast. With a cast of more than 70 students, head of Arts Faculty Gavin Hurley and arts consultant Ravil Atlas were mulling over which musical to produce this year. Their thoughts went to the talent available and what kind of production they could afford to do. But they’d heard a rumour the sets were sitting somewhere in a container on a farm in Darfield. “We knew we had the perfect cast available for Beauty and the Beast but we also understood that it was a Disney show and needed

the requisite wow-factor of a production,” said Mr Atlas. Mr Hurley went to see if the rumours were true and after a visit to Darfield, the sets were indeed discovered sitting in a container. Arrangements were made to get them back to the school and the costumes were located in the North Island, so the show was booked and practice began. Both the sets and costumes

were made by Showbiz in conjunction with Peter Jackson’s WETA Workshop. “I saw the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art use them to great effect a few years ago in Ashburton and I knew if we could get the sets and costumes we could put on a great show,” Mr Atlas said. The student orchestra will be led by Chris Petch, head

of the music department, with the direction falling to Mr Atlas, a former Broadway performer, now conductor and stage director. Beauty and the Beast will be held on July 20, 21, 22, 27, and 28 starting at 7pm. Matinees are available on July 23 and 29 starting 2pm. Tickets can be purchased through the school reception or by phoning 358 8383.


Academic or practical? We have a course for you! Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) offers programmes from Certificate to Masters level, with course intakes throughout the year. The Christchurch campus has programmes covered by the Zero Fees Scheme, which means you are not charged tuition fees, only paying for any direct material costs involved. The New Zealand Certificate in Project Management is open for enrolments and students can begin studying at the end of June or in the September intake. Teaching the core skills and techniques of project management, this course will allow you to contribute to the management of various projects and work

with others in a project team. Offered via blended delivery, you get the best of both worlds, with fortnightly workshops and online study combining to create a flexible and comprehensive programme. If you’re looking to get a trade under your belt, the Certificate in Construction is a great option as the building industry is in need of those with construction qualifications. Beginning in August, this course can allow you to fast track your way through an apprenticeship. Covering carpentry theory, elementary construction skills, health and safety, drawing and practical construction,

you will attend classes three days per week, with the other two days occupied by practical work experience. Students have the opportunity to participate in house building coupled with the completion of theory units, which will ideally then lead into an apprenticeship.

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.

New hope for patients suffering from MS, strokes or spinal injuries

Special offer for JUlY - if you have suffered a stroke, spinal injury or have MS, then this article is for you.

For those seeking relief from pain caused by injury, and other physical and mental health issues, Chinese health practitioner Dr Lan Xiao offers a method of treatment that brings fast, and often immediate results. A graduate of Beijing Medical College, Dr Lan established an acupuncture clinic in Christchurch in 1993. As she continued her research and medical practice, she discovered a reflexology network on the human body, an exciting new discovery that became the foundation of her new treatment – acupuncture without needles. Instead of needles, Dr Lan uses a blunt instrument to stimulate the reflexology points on the face or other parts of the body. When the point is stimulated by pressure, a message is sent to the repair centre to promote healing. As Dr Lan explains, the treatment increases energy, which boosts the body’s healing system. The body will heal injuries naturally, she says, but that is a slow process. In addition, many people will start to use their injured part, for example a knee or an ankle, before it is properly healed, therefore prolonging the injury and even causing chronic pain. With her powerful treatment, results are produced very quickly – even instantly. She likens it to the differences between the power of a car – natural healing, of an aeroplane – other types of natural healing, and of a rocket –

reflexology network. It brings fast results because it is a very precise treatment, Dr Lan says. She uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body, including arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury, and there are no side-effects. Depression and anxiety, often the result of ongoing low energy, can also be overcome with Dr Lan’s treatment. Dr Lan’s treatment can give amazing, instant improvement for muscle weakness and numbness caused by nerve damage such as MS, stroke and spinal injury. Search You Tube for Dr Lan reflexology to see lots of instant results videos. Dr Lan has published a book, Dr Lan’s Reflexology Network, which introduces the treatment and explains how it works. Her website, www. drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes treatment videos, where people who have had the treatment speak about the fast relief it has brought them. Dr Lan is offering 10 patients of stroke, 10 patients of MS and 10 patients of spinal injury half price for their rehabb. Phone 323 4168, mobile 027 231 8388.

Oozing contemporary style and executive finesse, the exterior of this inviting 253-sqm house is adorned with beautiful stone feature detailing and timber accents. While inside, the space opens to a welcoming separate entranceway, 4 double bedrooms (master with ensuite and walkin robe + 3 doubles with built-in robes), 2 further bathrooms and toilets, a study, plus a separate laundry with back-door access. The open plan kitchen/dining/ living area with fresh, modern décor sets the tone throughout.

Large picture windows and doors off the living area drench the entire property in natural light.

Through the expansive opening doors and out onto the large deck, the delightful entertainment area is perfect for summer drinks and BBQs, while the grass and garden area create a

spacious haven for the children and pets to run around in. The north-facing aspect of the property ensures sun, sun, sun, while double off-street garaging with internal access plus generous off-street parking spaces complete the appeal. Located just minutes from a handy supermarket, local eateries and amenities, this property is also zoned for excellent schools - including Fendalton Primary, Cobham Intermediate, Burnside High, CBHS and CGHS (January 2018) - all of which help to underpin the strength of your investment.
