NIGHT-TIME restrictions in suburban Huntsbury Hill to curb excessive noise, drug use and littering have taken another step towards becoming a reality. Residents on Vista Pl and Roystone Way have been besieged by young drivers who park up at the scenic spots to socialise, listen to loud music and smoke cannabis. On Friday, the SpreydonCashmere Community Board recommended to the city council that a ban on vehicles under

but protecting residents from unwanted disturbances. “We would like to think there are places around the hills to park up, listen to music and enjoy the view, just where it is not disrupting residents,” she said. The proposal comes after Southern View reported in June residents were fed up with youths congregating in vehicles on the scenic streets at night, playing loud music, smoking bongs, shouting and partying. Two options were considered by the board: Install the restrictions, or do nothing.

Consultation on the proposal was carried out between August 9-25, and 62 people responded with 85 per cent in support of the restrictions. One person did not support the idea, saying it would only move the problem to other parts of the city. Others said it was long overdue and applauded the restrictions. It will cost about $2000 for the installation of signage and, if approved, the money will come from the city council’s traffic engineering fund, Ms Potter said.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THE BUREAUCRATIC wheels turn very slowly in Christchurch, highlighted by our page 1 article today. In June, we revealed Vista Pl and Roystone Way residents on Huntsbury Hill are having to put up with young drivers blasting loud music, smoking cannabis and urinating near their properties. They had been to the police and the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board, desperate to get a solution. On Friday, the community board recommended to the city council that vehicles under 3500kgs are banned on Vista Pl and Roystone Way between 10pm and 5am. The ban would not apply to a resident or “bona fide visitor”. The city council will decide on November 9 if it agrees. The hold up: Public consultation. Get the ban in and give the residents some peace and quiet, I say. – Barry Clarke

Yacht club on board over park „„ By Julia Evans THE MT Pleasant Yacht Club is happy to work with concerned parties to make Scott Park better for everyone. A new working group met to discuss issues of water and park access, safety and general landscaping. And yacht club immediate past commodore Tim Prickett said following the meeting, everyone was on the same page. “Essentially there were three thrusts to the meeting . . . accessibility of park, water and Darrell beautification,” he Latham said. Those at the recent meeting included Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board chairwoman Sally Buck and members Darrell Latham, Tim Lindley and Jake McLellan. Also in attendance was Mt Pleasant Residents’ Association co-ordinator Jules Lee; Paul Roperfee of the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group; Dr Prickett and Duncan Cartwright of the Mt Pleasant Yacht Club; Russell Mathieson and Allan Taylor of Canterbury Wind Sports; and

PARK: Accessibility and beautification at Scott Park have been discussed by a working party. city council staff member Eric Banks. Dr Prickett said a majority of the issues could be dealt with simply by adding more signage. “Accessibility is largely to do with perception rather than reality, it just needs to be better signed,” he said. Although he did agree the park was “pretty ugly”. Dr Prickett said there was currently a lack of city council funding available but in the next financial year more would become free. “But the sentiment was that we’re all going in the same direction,” he said. The working party was triggered after Coastal Pathway

and landscaping raised during discussion,” Dr Latham said. He said the park is still in the early stages of development. “Going forward we have the opportunity to make Scott Park a wonderful area of recreation for water sport users and as a gateway experience for coastal pathway walkers or families wishing enjoy a picnic in the park near the water’s edge.” The community board is looking to develop a 10-year master plan for the park’s future. Mr Banks is going back to the city council to discuss the landscaping problems with an urban planner. The plan is to engage a landscape architect to work with the Scott Park working party.

In Brief ASHGROVE RESERVE WORK The Lower Cashmere Residents’ Association is working with city council parks staff in a bid to become involved in the maintenance of Ashgrove Reserve. The association formed Friends of the Ashgrove Reserve to undertake the work. It has already held a “weeding bee” in which most of the invasive weeds at the top of the reserve were removed and rubbish was cleared. FOREST OPEN The Te Oranga Waikura Urban Forest and Stormwater Basin in Woolston was opened last week at a public ceremony attended by city councillors and members of the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board. The forest was planted on a site that was a part of Linwood College. The earthquake-damaged land off Ferry Rd was bought by the city council to use as a storage basin to reduce the risk of flooding. GRANT APPROVED The former Hoon Hay Children’s Volunteer Library is now being leased by the Hoon Hay Community Association. The group will operate it as a bookable community space on Hoon Hay Rd while the city council investigates the building’s future.

Group chairman Scott Babington raised concerns about public access to the foreshore near the Ferrymead Bridge. As it stands there is no public access around the south side of the yacht club’s new boat shed as it is currently fenced off, he said. But Mr Babington could not attend the meeting as he is overseas. Dr Latham agreed and said overall the meeting had a positive tone. “From my perspective everybody understood the issues. Yes, there are concerns that we need to reach agreement on. However, we are closer together than a part on the matters of access

sobering story with students I should’ve said: ‘Stop. Please pull over, I’m not comfortable, will you please let me out.’ It’s simple. That was the moment that changed my life forever. He was rounding a corner too fast on Remuera Rd in a 50km/h zone, going twice the speed limit-plus. He hit a power pole exactly where I was seated. We went through a garage door and halfway through a brick wall. I was in a coma for a month. When I woke up, I didn’t know I was there, I didn’t know what had happened because I don’t remember this night. I don’t remember a year and a half before this night or a year and a half after this night. Three years of my life is gone and I feel like I’m telling stories about another person. But these were my mistakes. It has affected my life hugely. I have diabetes, epilepsy, splenectomy – it took my spleen. These are the scars from one, two, three, four, five bad mistakes in one evening. I even had to have part of my skull replaced with titanium plating.

My left leg was partially replaced with a titanium rod and behind this metal front is the part of my brain that was most damaged. Sure, I damaged the left and right lobe but the frontal lobe is what makes it hard to behave correctly, behave socially correctly and manage my own life. I can’t plan. I work with six carers part time, 24/7. Every single day of my life is planned by someone else. That was not my plan when I was back at high school, this was not my plan when I was 17 years of age. But I made those mistakes. Partial loss of sight, partial loss of hearing, partial loss of smell. My left eye I can only see when I look in one direction. My right eye, I can’t see my hand when it’s right there. My left ear is deaf, which is a big bummer. I only have eight per cent taste left, which is a real bummer – I was a big food person. Not so much anymore. All of these things, all of these injuries, all of this crap in my life could’ve been prevented by

just thinking before I did those things. Before I finish this speech, I just have a few questions for you. How would you think, how would you feel if you were in my position? How would you feel having all of this happen to you and you were in the middle of it? What would you do to stop it again? And how would you live? Because every day I get up, I feel like I have less motivation. Every day I get up, it’s hard. There are three things you have to remember. Don’t drink and drive. Come on, it’s not that hard, is it? Second thing, (when you) hop into a car, put your seat belt on. It’s three seconds of your life. Put your seat belt on, even if you’re in the back seat. They save lives. Millions of lives. And next, if your friend is driving dangerously, if he’s driving fast, if he’s driving drunk – tell him to pull over, tell him to stop the car. You shouldn’t be embarrassed to ask because they should be the ones embarrassed for putting your life in danger. Thank you.

Call for cycleway to new sports hub „„ By Emily O’Connell HALSWELL Community Project chairwoman Chrys Horn wants to see a better cycling route to the new Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub in Wigram. Dr Horn attended the Halswell Liaison Group meeting last week, where the request was made by members of the community. Residents also discussed the final 3D designs of the hub with city council staff. The first stage of the hub will see the athletics track up and running in March. The hockey turfs, tennis courts, rugby league fields and several other facilities will then be opened on the 32ha site between autumn next year and 2019. Dr Horn said the meeting was positive and a lot of great ideas were shared. “They [the designs] look good, I’m excited. It was nice to be able to input into some ideas around how the public might use that area. Not just seeing it as a sporting area, but also as a place people can go walking and things,” she said. Dr Horn said there were suggestions around the creation of a cycle route to the new hub that could go through Canterbury

Park, Aidanfield and then link to Hillmorton High School. “There is a track there which could be used already but it would be nice if it was a bit wider and a bit more intentional,” she said. Dr Horn said traffic was already a big problem in Halswell, so she would like to see more accessible bus, walking and cycling routes into the hub. “We need to encourage people to take the forms of transport which are less common,” she said. City council head of transport Lynette Ellis said stage one of

the hub has been designed for cycle access with safety in mind. “It includes a sealed, shared path connecting the sports hub to the nearby cycle network on Templetons Rd. This is a 2.5m sealed, shared path on the western side of Templetons Rd which runs from the shared path on State Highway 75 to the boundary of the site,” she said. Mrs Ellis said an existing gravel path would also link to the Little River major cycle route, which will be sealed and lit at a later stage. “The hub has a minimum of 146 cycle parks, including a

covered cycle park structure,” Mrs Ellis said. City council manager of recreational services David Bailey said residents at the meeting also wanted to know what kind of impact there might be on traffic along McMahon Dr and Augustine Dr. He said other suggestions included play and shaded areas, water fountains and some environmentally-friendly measures. “City council staff will continue to work closely with the community going forward as work continues on the project,” he said.

Watch the Timeball grow online YOU DON’T need to leave the comfort of your living room to watch the rebuild of Lyttelton’s iconic Timeball Tower. Heritage New Zealand and Hawkins Construction are sharing costs for a time lapse camera that captures progress of the build every 10min from 6.30am to 5.30pm. “We encourage people to view the time lapse camera and watch the rebuild in real time. The tower rebuild should begin to become quite noticeable on Lyttelton’s skyline in the next few weeks,” Heritage New Zealand general manager Nick Chin said. He said it will be a welcome reminder for locals of the familiar landmark that has stood at the site since 1876 but has been missing since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The Timeball Tower will be finished by the end of April. An internal concrete shell, which will house the automated timeball mechanism, is currently being constructed on site. •To view progress on the $3 million project visit http:// lytteltontimeball.projectstory. co.nz/

Caves were once party central THE SOUND of music from concerts, picnics and parties rang through Taylors Mistake at the turn of the century when caves were turned into mansions. Janet Abbott became fascinated by the history of the area and the cave mansions that were once tucked between Boulder Bay and Taylors Mistake. She curated an exhibition last week of historic photographs of 18 cave baches and has written a book about their history based on interJanet Abbott views with people who once attended the parties in this unique community. “Not too many people know the full history of the area. We’ve uncovered quite a bit of new information,” Ms Abbott said. Friends of the owners would go to concert parties at the Theatre Royal, catch the last tram to Sumner and then walk over the hill in the dark to have a “hi de ho” at the bach, Ms Abbott said. “My fascination with these cave baches stems from memories of being rowed around the coast in the dingy by my

mother from our bach in Boulder Bay.” She said the baches were part of a very different way of life at that time. Many of them were just basic

huts where fishermen could spend the night while catching crayfish or fishing on the morning tide. “The abundant fishing and the

hillsides heaving with rabbits provided food during the depression days. Families filled the baches. Children grew up fishing, boating and roaming the cliffs and caves.” However, three of them were grand Edwardian Cave baches, including the Pilgrim’s Rest, which was built by Alfred Osborn (known as the Pilgrim, who built the original Pilgrim’s Way

track), The Hermitage and Te Nui Ana. The baches were often made from timber from ships passing through the area. Before containers, ships secured their cargo with planks of wood, and once clear of the harbour they would throw this wood overboard creating “dunnage” that washed up along the coast. Concrete foundations remain from a few of the baches. The Pilgrim’s Rest had a camera obscura and the owner hosted picnic parties attended by women who would clamber down the rough track wearing ankle-length Edwardian dresses. The Hermitage was built in 1906 from timber salvaged from Fuller’s Old Theatre and the Main Exhibition building from the New Zealand International Exhibition which was held in Christchurch from 1906 to 1907. There was a bunk room for women and the cave was lit with kerosene lamps. Te Nui Ana, built in 1903, had three rooms, including a women’s bedroom, a men’s bunkroom and a staircase. The décor featured a chandelier and a grand piano.

PERSONALISED PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS

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

Enrolling now for 2018 Principal’s Report Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa atu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. The content of this page shows the busy life of a NZ secondary school. Education is about seeing the whole person and how these developmentally positive experiences enrich our students’ understanding of whom they are and broaden their outlook. They nurture students’ classroom focus by contextualising their learning and sowing the seeds of positive ambition. Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed curriculum’. This means the school, students and families knowing: 1. students’ past learning and skills as they come into LC from our partner primary schools and building on these successes 2. how the learning at LC connects to what the students want to do when they leave school. “What are my post-school pathways and how does my LC learning help me to achieve these pathways?” In this way learning is meaningful to the individual and strengths-based.

College's Car Club Connected to these student pathways are the national development of Kāhui Ako-Communities of Learning. Education, unfortunately, can have its share of short-term fads, but Kāhui Ako are not one of them. In fact, effective schools and communities have taking this approach for decades. Kāhui Ako are schools collaborating to ensure that the student is at the centre of all activity, not just in the individual school that they are in at the time, but as students progress in education from early childhood centres through their schooling to tertiary and the workplace. Linwood College is in two Kāhui Ako. Tamai is the schools of Bamford, Bromley, Linwood Ave, Linwood College, Linwood North, Tamariki, and Te Waka Unua. Aupaki is Heathcote Valley, Linwood College, Lyttelton, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Mt Pleasant, Redcliffs and Sumner. One practical outcome already of our Kāhui Ako has been a specific focus on enrichment with students from our schools getting together for very successful eight week enrichment programmes in Maths, Debating, Pasifika and with Technology to come. Finally, schools can be complicated places. If for any reason you would like to talk to me about anything please contact the office so we can arrange this. My door is open. Ngamihinui – best wishes, Richard Edmundson - Tumuaki (Principal)

Coast to Coast Update Article by The Press’ Robert van Royen – Sept, 2017 (paraphrased) Six Linwood College pupils are competing in the Tough Mudder event alongside Richie McCaw in Auckland in November, thanks to iSport Foundation and Coast-to-Coast Rangers. Linwood College’s Mapu Uasi, Moahengi Ngauamo, Juilan Elia-Lui, Tupito Saofai and Kyle Amer couldn't contain their excitement when they heard the news that they would be competing. They will all do the 20km mud and obstacle course, which is designed to test physical strength, stamina and mental grit.

McCaw's Foundation contacted Jess De Bont, who is currently training the pupils for next year's Coast-to-Coast and suggested the Tough Mudder event to her. "It's an amazing opportunity – once in a life time stuff," she said. “Auckland is a really good lead up for the Coastto-Coast,” said Jess De Bont.

Planting at Charlesworth Reserve Linwood College’s Year 7 & 8 students did an awesome job during a day of planting at Charlesworth Reserve according to Karla Guerin, the Kiwi Can Coordinator from the Graeme Dingle Foundation. Karla said that the planting day (late last term) was very hot and windy but the students all persevered and gave it their best. She said that it was great to see everyone fully engaged and work alongside each other with great teamwork.

Cultural Festival Linwood College presented three cultural dances at the 2017 Primary Schools’ Cultural Festival. Filipino students performed a sacred dance which was followed by a Samoan dance, ‘Do it, do it’ siva. The final item was a kapa haka and song ‘Kapi-oi-oi’. Our students made us proud while demonstrating the rich cultural diversity of our College.

Linwood College students’ Car Club had a great time at Ara Institute of Canterbury over Term 3, learning about all things cars. Under the careful guidance of Tutor Bernie Blanken, students learnt how to change tyres, jump-start flat batteries, strip down and rebuild a small fourstroke engine, disassemble and reassemble a gearbox as well as automotive welding. Students thanked Bernie by buying him a big box of chocolates at the end of the course.

Drama Review

Year 10’s mini production is going to be #fairestofthemall. This story is an adaption of Snow White with an improvised and modern twist.

Year 11's Tasha Matoe in Year 12/13 performers in ‘Harbouring Ghosts’, a play an adaptation of Hamlet’s about healing past mistakes. ‘Ophelia Thinks Harder’.

Masking Up Part of the Year 9 Drama curriculum is to focus on Drama technologies, so last term students worked on Mask Making. This is an important technology which has links to Greek Theatre and Commedia Del'Arte, both types of Drama which the students will be researching when they get to their NCEA studies.

'The Change Over' Review As a Christchurch resident from the Eastern suburbs, the movie ‘The Changeover’ is certainly well worth watching, not just for its plot but for the visually striking scenes of post-quake Christchurch. Aerial views show the lead character’s home surrounded by a sea of vacant lots and low-lying swampy stretches. Looking across to the city, with randomly plonked containers and road works, these scenes also tell part of our story. Linwood College is listed on the credits as many of our students were acting extras.

NZ Army Visit The New Zealand Army Band paid Linwood College a visit late last term and provided a very enjoyable lunchtime musical ensemble. Our Head Boy, Thomas McHutchison (pictured) joined the band.

Part of the magic of being a girl-led organisation is that GirlGuiding New Zealand can offer camps and activities that girls really love.

BRIGHT SPARK: Michael Hann, 18, with a prototype of his security device designed to be deployed in a natural disaster. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Young inventor builds device to stop looting „„ By Julia Evans MICHAEL HANN likes fixing things. The 18-year-old always has. His earliest memory is helping his dad, Jody, put an electric motor on a tricycle. “When I see a problem, I like to think of ways to fix or improve it,” he said. He saw a problem he could solve when medication and hearing equipment was stolen from a North New Brighton home during the tsunami evacuation after the Kaikoura earthquake last November. “Seeing the looting when the earthquake happened inspired me to create this product,” he said. So he designed a security system to be deployed in a natural disaster when the power goes out, and now

he’s a finalist in the ASB Bright Sparks competition. It’s called TEMS, which Michael said stands for “temporary emergency monitoring system”. The invention acts as a battery charger for devices and a place to keep belongings locked inside during a disaster. It also has an alarm to keep houses safe when evacuated. It is triggered by the rocking caused by an earthquake and lights up an exit path. Michael’s now working on connecting TEMS to an app which would send a text if someone breaks in. “I really want to get it connected up to a phone network so it sends out a text or notification through an app,” he said. Michael will fly to Auckland on November 7 to attend the Bright Sparks

awards evening. “It’s on the same night as my last high school prize-giving, but I’ve decided to go up to Auckland instead,” he said. With him will be his proud dad, from who Michael may have inherited the “fix it” gene. Mr Hann’s job involves repairing electronics for the police. “He doesn’t help me that much on my projects anymore,” Michael said. He spends his free time on Trade Me, buying broken items to upgrade. “Sometimes it’s not even fixing things; I just like to make improvements like in my bedroom. I made a motorised blind to wake me up in the morning,” he said. Next year the budding inventor will study engineering at Canterbury University.

Clinic offers easy solution to varicose veins If varicose veins are a problem for you, the dedicated, professional team at Transform Clinic in Mandeville Street Riccarton can provide the perfect solution. Firstly, they will give you a free assessment of your veins, and then suggest the appropriate method of treatment, depending on the condition of the veins. There are two methods available – endo-venous laser treatment, which is used for both smaller and larger veins, and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. Both are easy and straightforward, and you can be fully active immediately afterwards, without needing to take any time off work, or curtail your normal activities. The only requirement is for you to wear special stockings for two weeks following treatment, and daily walking is recommended. Both these treatments give long-term relief from the pain and discomfort of varicose veins, and as Transform Clinic’s Jenny Little points out, they have become the treatment method of today, with surgical removal of varicose veins now considered obsolete. Jenny advises having treatment as early as possible when varicose veins start to appear, as left untreated they may lead to venous ulcers and venous eczema, although

if these have developed, Transform Clinic can treat them as well. Transform Clinic has an affiliation with health provider Southern Cross and relationships with several other health insurance companies, which means you are usually covered for treatment, providing it is included in your policy. Transform Clinic also offers a full range of appearance medicine options, including skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening treatments designed to improve skin quality and enhance self-esteem. They remove superficial veins on the legs and face, and also provide mole mapping, mole removal and primary skin cancer removal. Their website, www.transformclinic.co.nz, has information on all the various treatments available. “We are a ‘one-stop shop’ for all cosmetic medicine treatments,” says Jenny. Transform Clinic is discreetly located at 52a Mandeville Street. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am, with late nights on Tuesday and Thursday, and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Phone 343-2880 to enquire about treatments or make an appointment.
