No more plastic bags „„ By Caitlin Miles SAVE THE ocean is the message from two Sumner School pupils who want to see plastic bags banned from supermarkets and daily life.

As part of a school project Izzy Morritt, 12, and Lucy Rule, 13, had to choose an environmental issue they felt passionately about – for them it was helping reduce the number of plastic bags in

favour of reusable ones. The pair said they know the damage plastic bags have on the ocean, animals and the environment, and they want to do something to reduce the

problem. “It’s a big environmental problem for Sumner and the rest of the world and the animals, we want to lower the problem,” Lucy said. • Turn to page 9

„„ By Caitlin Miles A MYSTERY $100,000 donation could see the Scarborough Park upgrade fast-tracked. Upgrades were originally scheduled for the playground over this year and next, but the city council pushed the revamp back until 2019/2020 due to a lack of funding. The Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board requested the funding be reinstated for 2017/2018 in a submission to the Annual Plan. Now the city council plans to reinstate the funding – as long as it receives a private donation of $100,000 in the first quarter of 2017/2018. The city council would not release the name of the private donor ‘under a subject of confidence’. Sumner Community Residents’ Association secretary, Susan Kaschula w ​ as amazed by the kindness and said it was “very positive news” for the area. She was not aware of it until told by Bay Harbour News. “I’m very happy to hear that. It’s really good to hear, it needs an upgrade it’s (the equipment) out of date,” Ms Kaschula said. • Turn to page 9

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK EVERY LITTLE bit counts. And in the case of the campaign to clean up our oceans, two Sumner School students (see page 1) are taking small but very important steps in the right direction. Save the ocean is the message Izzy Morritt and Lucy Rule are broadcasting with their school project campaign to ban plastic bags from supermarkets and daily life in general. Plastic is killing the world’s sea life and the chemicals that plastic contains has now worked its way into the food chain. The world’s super powers haven’t taken climate change and the environment particularly seriously over the decades. It will be the likes of Izzy and Lucy and their generation who will become leaders of the future. So maybe there is hope for the planet’s future. – Barry Clarke

In Brief

From Bermuda to Akaroa for Team New Zealand? „„ By Gordon Findlater THE AKAROA Yacht Club hosted a crowd of around 40 for yesterday’s America’s Cup finale. After its success they can’t see why they couldn’t host the whole regatta. “There were some murmurs of Akaroa hosting the next America’s Cup,” laughed club

captain Tim Richardson. “It was a beautiful morning here, you could have thought you were in Bermuda, other than there being no wind and some ice on the steps.” When a 5am coffee quickly turns into a champagne breakfast, any idea can’t be ruled out. The club has been in full swing, hosting early morning

breakfasts since the beginning of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup qualifiers. “We haven’t changed the menu. It’s been ham and cheese croissants with gold medal ham from the Akaroa Butchery,” said Mr Richardson. Even after the events of San Francisco, he described the atmosphere in the early hours

as a calm one. “We were pretty confident. We had We Are the Champions by Queen ready to play as soon as they crossed the line,” he said. After the big race some of the club members got into the racing spirit themselves with some remote control yachts on the wharf.

MUSEUM LAND FEEDBACK The Lyttelton community has until Friday to provide their input into a proposal to gift city council land to the Lyttelton Historical Museum Society. The city council is considering gifting land at 33-35 London St to the society so it can rebuild a museum. The city council has no plans to use the land, which the Lyttelton Service Centre occupied until it was demolished following the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The land is valued at $220,000. To make a submission on the proposed gifting of the land, go to consultations-and-submissions/ haveyoursay/show/39

Plan to increase rates to build health hub „„ By Caitlin Miles A TEMPORARY targeted rates increase could be put on properties in Akaroa to help fund the health hub. Akaroa Community Trust has asked the city council to increase rates on houses that the Akaroa Health Hub would service to help reach its community fundraising target. The community needs to raise roughly $2 million for the project and, while fundraisers and private donations are helping it towards this goal, the trust thinks the temporary rates increase could speed things up. The health hub is not a city council project, meaning it is uncertain whether the increase will actually happen. City council staff are working

on a report about the impact of the proposed rates increase so councillors can make a more detailed decision on what it should do. Ngai Tahu Holdings – Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu pulled out of the project last year, which meant the Akaroa community needs to raise the more of the money required for the health hub. The project is a partnership between the Canterbury District Health Board and the Akaroa community. HAVE YOUR SAY: Should the city council put a targeted rates increase on Akaroa properties?

RESIDENTS PARKING A decision on introducing controversial residents only parking in Clifton Tce, Sumner, could be made soon. The LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board will go to the section of Clifton Tce on Monday which the city council is proposing to make residents only parking. This would mean residents would have to pay a yearly fee to be able to park there. The plan was met with mixed responses from residents. Five responders supported the plan and five were against. The community board is expected to make a decision once they have visited the site.

Benefits of volunteering List MP for the Port Hills Nuk Korako reflects on National Volunteer Week and recognising those in the community Last week was National Volunteer Week 2017, so it’s a great time to acknowledge the amazing contribution that volunteers make to our communities. The theme this year was “Live, laugh, share – volunteer” or “Kia ringa hora: Me Mahi tuao”, which really captured the fact that volunteering isn’t only great for our communities, but actually benefits those of us who choose to volunteer. Volunteering feels great and is good for your mental and physical health. As a former business owner who has employed many staff, I can also tell you that volunteer experience stands out on your CV and can really enhance your job prospects. But, I think if you asked our wonderful volunteers, they’d tell you all of these positive benefits are just a by-product. The real reason they volunteer

is their desire to do something good for their community. There are many volunteering opportunities available right here in the Port Hills area. We have organisations like 0800 HUNGRY, which rely on volunteers to deliver food to those who need it, Hohepa Home, where volunteers can help make life better for people living with an intellectual disability, and many other charitable organisations which rely on volunteers for their important work. Right now there are also lots of opportunities for volunteers to assist with the re-planting work that is happening as the Port Hills recover from the fires. Given it is election year, I

also want to acknowledge the hundreds of volunteers who will be hitting the streets to support election candidates right across the political spectrum. Election campaign volunteers sometimes get a hard time, but no matter which party they support these are a dedicated group of people who are giving up their time to support the values and policies they believe in. If you are currently a volunteer – kia kaha. Thank you for everything you do on behalf of our community. If not, perhaps it’s time to think about whether you can spare some time to help your community and how your skills would best be used.


MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE Twice a year we clear the Community Fund collection boxes at Christchurch Airport and share the money across the community. Kiwi dollars, international currency, small change from your cup of coffee, plus a top-up donation from us, all add up for local charities and community projects.

News Community centre for Birdlings Flat

Children’s pet sheep killed in weekend attack

Rebuild forces temporary relocation

„„ By Caitlin Miles AFTER Birdlings Flat residents lobbied for years for a community centre they now have one. The community centre was opened on Friday and was blessed by Wairewa kaumatua James Robinson. The building’s name, ​ Te Whare o te Mata Hapuku was gifted by the Wairewa Runanga. Residents have wanted a centre since 2008 to provide a community facility in the area so people would have a meeting place and spot to use for various different events and for some health services. In 2014 the city council provided $180,000 to help get a community centre built. The budget was also topped up by a Lotteries Grant of $200,000. The Little River Wairewa Community Trust took charge of the project, it managed the construction and assigned local builder Callum Schenkel to do the work. Trust chairman Robert Burch said the trust took on the project because they could see the longterm benefits the new centre would bring to the community.

„„ By Andrew King “THEY’RE A pack of thieving pigs.” That’s the view of angry Little River builder, Danny Bulman, who woke on Saturday to find three of his family’s pet sheep had been slaughtered for meat and the lambs inside them discarded on the ground. About 20 of the defenceless animals had been grazing in the stockyards next to the Banks Peninsula Rugby Club near the corner of SH75 and Western Valley Rd. Mr Bulman said all three were pregnant with twins, so now not only has he lost three pets, he has lost six future pets as well. “I would love to catch the bastards,” Mr Bulman said. He made a point of hanging the guts on the fence to make everyone aware what had happened, he has since cleaned it up. It’s believed that the killing happened over Friday night or early Saturday morning, police said. His children, who are seven and five, are also sad at the loss

„„ 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.




SLAUGHTERED: Danny Bulman’s family pet sheep were grazing in these stockyards when three were killed either on Friday night or early Saturday morning. of their pets. “They know they are gone, but they don’t know really how,” he said. He has been around all the neighbours and to the local pub to try and find the person or persons responsible for the deaths. “There have been quite a few go missing over the past few years. I won’t be putting my sheep back down there again,” he said.

His father has a lease deal with the stockyards to keep animals in there to keep the grass down. “Whoever has done it knew what they were doing,” he said. The police are also making inquiries. Senior Constable Tim Johnston said if anyone has any information they can phone 363 7400 and ask to be put through to the Akaroa Police Station.

KiwiRail back tracks over fee „„ By Caitlin Miles

KIWIRAIL HAS apologised for any upset it caused when Heathcote property owners were told they would have to pay for sheds and fences that encroach on the rail corridor. About 50 Heathcote residents were shocked earlier this year when they received a letter from KiwiRail saying they needed a “licence to occupy” the company’s land at an annual rate Ruth Dyson of $350 a year with a yearly increase of two per cent. The alternative was to remove any private structures on the land. KiwiRail said the reason it had told residents they needed the licence was to understand what the residents were doing on their land to enure everyone was safe. However, MP Ruth Dyson said KiwiRail has now “backed down” after she met with the company’s representatives at the request of residents. She said if KiwiRail wanted to know what the land was being

used for they simply “could have asked”. She said residents’ reactions ranged from “slightly bemused to being extremely angry” at the letter received from the company. At the meeting, Ms Dyson spoke to KiwiRail representatives about the company’s approach and discussed the residents’ issues. A KiwiRail spokesman said the company acknowledges there are issues with its management of the rail corridor and apologises for any concern that has been caused as a result of its approach. As a result, the company plans to hold a meeting with affected residents to hear their concerns and to discuss a management plan for the corridor. Ms Dyson said while she is not sure what the company will offer, she is “delighted they have backed down” and are willing to take another approach. “I don’t think many (residents) had much faith, but it is a great result,” Ms Dyson said. A time and date has not yet been set for the meeting, but it OFF TRACK: KiwiRail has apologised for the way it handled the is expected to go ahead in ‘licence to occupy’ issue with residents and wants to look at August. alternatives.


In Brief HISTORIC REPAIRS Repairs to two historic buildings used by the Akaroa Museum are nearing completion. Scaffolding around the repainted 138-yearold court house on Rue Lavaud has been removed and a heat pump been installed. The court house’s audio visual equipment has been upgraded so it can be used as a theatre by the museum. Customs house on Rue Balguerie is also nearly ready to reopen. Its external chimney has been rebuilt and is now supported by a steel frame constructed within the chimney. The barrier and viewing windows, which previously prevented visitors from walking into the building, have been removed and the exterior has been repainted. FUTURE OF BACHES Privately-owned baches on city council-owned land in Taylors Mistake and Boulder Bay may not be allowed to stay. Heathcote Ward city councillor Sara Templeton will head a working party to determine if the baches should remain and under what terms. The legality of the baches​on public land has been an ongoing issue. A report from the working party is expected to be presented to the city council by September 30.

$100k donation for park • From page 1 Community board member Darrell Latham (right) said they requested the funding be reinstated because the community felt the improvements to the park are important to the community. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the funding was originally pushed back due to affordability. “The funding was pushed back due to the Annual Plan process and the overall affordability of

the council budget to the ratepayer,” Mr Rutledge said. Ms Kaschula said the park is widely used by the people of Christchurch and upgrading it would be “very good” for tourism as well. The city council has a capital expenditure of $450,000 for the project. Last year the city council asked the community what they would like to see in


the park, in terms of equipment upgrades and other improvements needed for the park. The city council had 25 responses to the pre-engagement. Upgrades could include updating play equipment, footpaths, park furniture, landscaping and drainage.

Message: Save the ocean • From page 1 They started working on the project two weeks ago, they designed the logos, Refuse and Reuse, and approached Green Elephant to help make them. They had 50 made and Green Elephant donated an extra 50 and a $50 gift voucher to show their support. “We didn’t expect them to donate some bags too, we’re really thankful to

have their support,” Izzy said. The bags cost $1 to make and the girls plan to sell them for $2 – with profits going into saving marine life. Izzy and Lucy are very excited to also share their campaign with Dr Jane Goodall, a primatologist, ethologist and anthropologist who is considered to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees.

Izzy and Lucy will be stationed outside Sumner Supervalue this weekend, selling the bags for $2. Mayor Lianne Dalziel has signalled her support for a crack down on single use plastic bags also. Ms Dalziel has joined 27 other mayors by signing a letter calling for the Government to support a charge on plastic bags, or give the power to local authorities to impose one.

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’.

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.”

CREATIVE: Front: Jack Miller, Billy McLoughlin, Francis Dougherty, Rio Simpson, Darcy Dougherty, Joel Fulford. Back: Bruno Davies, Reuben Cawood, Elijah Butts, Sasha Stedman, Petra Musinszki, Pania Thoen designed and printed their own T-shirts. ​

Learning T-shirt design DESIGNING IS in the future of some pupils from Our Lady Star of the Sea School. The year 7 and 8 pupils have been learning about the process of designing and printing T-shirts. Senior teacher Tony Lamb said the end product from the pupils was “wonderful”.


“The children came up with their own designs and followed a careful process to screen print their design onto a T-shirt,” Mr Lamb said. The pupils got to make the T-shirts as part of the graphic design programme the school is running. ​

Kids challenge themselves BALANCE AND some serious concentration were needed by children that took part in Youthtown’s Diamond Harbour after school programme. Rueben Gill (right) took part in the challenge learning to slackline. It is similar to tightrope walking, but closer to the ground. It requires concentration, balance and a bit of confidence

to do. The children also started to learn some tricks. Diamond Harbour School pupils also got their hands dirty working with Youthtown. The school took part in the Make Trees Count campaign and planted a native lancewood tree at the school to celebrate Arbour Day. Trees for Canterbury is also involved in the programme.





Author’s big donation SCHOOLS to Lyttelton Primary „„ By Caitlin Miles LYTTELTON Primary School pupils were surprised by the large donation of books from a local author. Ben Brown has written children’s books for 25 years as well as writing for adults. He went to the school recently and gifted 42 books to the school library. Mr Brown wanted to see the books going to a good cause and being read by children in Lyttelton. Some of those donation included books that were entered in the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults 2017. Mr Brown was a judge in the nationwide competition. The school has a display in the library around the book awards and the additions have been added. The donation includes a wide range of books from authors across the country detailing many interesting, creative and imaginative stories. Principal Brendan Wright


SPORTS GIFTED: The collection of 42 books have been added to the library for all the pupils to enjoy. said it was unexpected but great for the children. “It blew us away on the day. The librarians were impressed with the variety of books,” Mr Wright said. The pupils were also visited by a world champion and Olympian rower. Nicola Coles is an Olympic ambassador and she told the pupils about the challenges, disappointments and failures

she has faced on her journey. Although her story was full of challenges her message was to encourage the children to never give up and stay determined and work hard to see success – even if it doesn’t always come with a medal. Her speech not only shared her passion for her support but it also aimed to connect with the Olympic values of respect and friendship.

Returning to work, but Penalty shoot-out takes Bays to English Cup final looking for a change? „„ By Gordon Findlater FERRYMEAD Bays handed a first team debut to 15-year-old Mikaele Rabuka on route to booking their spot in the final of the English Cup. Bays defeated Western 4-3 on penalties at Ferrymead Park on Saturday to move into the final of the competition they won last year. With a number of first team regulars missing, coach Danny Halligan was forced to give some of the younger guns a run, including Rabuka who up until last week hadn’t even trained with the first team. “I hadn’t seen too much of him going into Saturday, but a lot of guys in the team had given me the recommendation and said he was a very talented player,” said Halligan. “I thought he applied himself very well and I can see him becoming a first team player in the coming years.” Rabuka has been with Bays since 2009, coming through the grades. He has represented Canterbury at age-group level and has been part of the

FUTURE: Mikaele Rabuka, 15, got his first taste of first team football on Saturday. ​

Mainland Football Federation Talent Centre programme. He was recently named in the Canterbury youth training squad. Trailing 0-2 late in the game, Bays introduced the attacking midfielder with 15min to go. Their late comeback involved two scrambling goals to Geoff MacIntyre and Andreas Wilson. Bays goalkeeper Adam Highfield was the star after extra-time, saving

two of Western’s attempts from the spot to lead Bays to victory. Bays will play the winner of the Coastal Spirit and Cashmere Technical semi-final, which is yet to be scheduled. Bays now turn their immediate focus to their Mainland Premier League match against Nomads United at English Park on Saturday. Bays are currently second on the league table.

Sumner keen to move on after one-point defeat „„ Gordon Findlater SUMNER HAVE a tough pill to swallow after a last minute converted try saw them go down to Shirley 25-26 at Burwood Park on Saturday. The final act of the division one, section two metro rugby game was full of drama. After scoring on fulltime, Shirley were left with a conversion to win the game. The shot at goal narrowly missed. However, the kick was retaken after a Sumner player was heard yelling during their charge down attempt. Shirley’s Nathan Smith didn’t miss on the second attempt, ending Sumner’s seven-game winning streak. The usually dependable first-five Nik Cumming would have been wishing he had the same luxury, making just two of his

seven attempts at goal for Sumner. While Sumner coach Martin Dodgson was frustrated with the way the game ended, he said the decision to allow the kick to be retaken was correct under the rules. He was more upset about the number of players offside who were not penalised. He said rather than dwell on the result, the team were determined to use it as fuel going into Saturday’s clash with High School Old Boys. “The team got together at the end of the game and decided that however we’re feeling at the moment, we use that going into next week,” said Dodgson. The game against Shirley got off to a slow start with the home side taking a 5-3 advantage into half-time. However, in the second half, Sumner didn’t muck

around with No 8 Dylan Nel crossing the line early on before the opposition regained control to lead Sumner 19-10. Sumner introduced game-breaking winger Poasa Waqanibau midway through the second half and he made an immediate impact. Several minutes after being introduced, Waqanibau crossed the line before later setting up Cumming with an impressive off-load. With less than 10min to play, Tom Crozier scored for Sumner to give them a 25-19 advantage before Shirley’s last minute heroics. On a brighter note, Sumner will have close to a fully fit side going into their home game against High School Old Boys. Dodgson is expecting to have the services of key players Tom Manly and Wes Mauafu, who will both return from injury.

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.

Ferrymead Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman






‘Funny, touching and unpredictable’ Jojo Moyes Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive – but not how to live Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life. Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine? ‘Heartwrenching and wonderful’ Nina Stibbe ‘Deft, compassionate and moving’ Paula McLain ‘I adored it. Skilled, perceptive, Eleanor’s world will feel familiar to you from the very first page. An outstanding debut!’ Joanna Cannon

are you considering selling before winter arrives? The weather may be cooling but the property market in the seaside suburbs certainly isn’t! Find out what your home could be worth to eager buyers actively trying to find their next home with a free property appraisal. I look forward to guiding you through your options for selling and advising on latest marketing ideas available.

Resurrection (Skulduggery Pleasant, Book 10) by Derek Landy The skeleton detective is coming back to life… again! It’s the tenth, triumphant novel in the Skulduggery Pleasant series, and it will rearrange your world. Skulduggery and Valkyrie are back in the tenth instalment in the bestselling Skulduggery Pleasant series – an incredible and unexpected treat for the legions of fans around the world. We can’t say much but we can say this: Skulduggery and Valkyrie are going to team up with beloved characters from the first 9 books as well as an all-new cast, including new teen co-star Omen Darkly, for an adventure that takes the story to truly global proportions… while answering questions that go right back to the beginning.

At Whitehead Plumbing & Gas Ltd we have a great team of loyal staff offering a diverse range of skills.

And Derek says this: “I was halfway through Last Stand of Dead Men, I think, when I realised that I had more stories to tell. I told myself that if Skulduggery and Valkyrie survived the series, I would leave the option open of returning to their world. There were still secrets I need to reveal, after all, and there were still horrors they had to face. They survived the first series. But they’re really going to wish they hadn’t.”

Serving Canterbury for over 35 years, we do everything from domestic maintenance to new homes and commercial buildings.


Make us your first call today.
