ONE OF the city’s most promising young surfers has a big future ahead of him if recent results are anything to go by. Shirley Boys’ High’s Myka

Black (above) powered his way to second in the under-14 section at the national scholastic surf championships in Gisborne after winning a Canterbury title in May. His coach Aaron Lock said he

is one of the best surfers coming out of New Brighton. “He definitely has the talent to go pro and had a really good showing at the national event,” he said. Surfing is in the 13-year-old’s

„„ By Sophie Cornish A CRASH-PRONE road in North New Brighton may be narrowed to make it safer. There have been 12 crashes on Palmers Rd between Bowhill and New Brighton Rds between 2005 and 2016, New Zealand Transport agency data shows. Now the city council is considering narrowing Palmers Rd to one lane in four places. Public feedback on the upgrade closed last week. Narrowing Palmers Rd will make it more pedestrian-friendly. However, some on-street parking will be lost. Palmers Rd resident Nicola Smith has experienced issues with speed on the street before. Miss Smith, who is a nurse, has attended crashes on her street during the four years living there. She lives near the bend in the road as it approaches Bower Ave. •Turn to page 5

SOBERING DETAILS on page 3 today showing the need for emergency food supplies in low decile schools has doubled over the past six years. No surprises the jump has been particularly noticed in the eastern suburbs. Linwood North principal Sandra Smith says more pupils are coming to school than ever before without food. It was never that way when I went there. Mum would always make sure we had our lunchbox when she waved us off at the front door. But that was many, many years ago and times have changed dramatically – drugs, pokie machines and the cost of housing eat into the family budget. The brakes are about to go on that race track known as Palmers Rd (see page 1). About time. – Barry Clarke

Demand for emergency food increases Families struggle in eastern suburbs

WATER TAX OPPOSED The Coastal-Burwood Community Board discussed the possibility of the city council charging for water usage at its meeting. The board agreed that if water charges are proposed, it will not be in favour of the plan.

SCHOOL FOOD charity KidsCan says demand for emergency food supplies in low decile schools has doubled over the last six years. KidsCan chief executive Julie Chapman said the percentage of children needing food in schools supported by the charity has jumped from 11 per cent in 2011 to 22 per cent this year. Chapman says the jump has been particularly noticeable in the east of Christchurch where at least 10,000 houses were demolished due to the earthquakes. “Certainly the housing pressures [in Christchurch] have forced a lot of families into situations where they’re sharing houses and I think that, coupled with increased cost of living, is having a real impact.” Linwood North School principal Sandra Smith said the stress on the local community is

acute and has resulted in more pupils coming to school without food than ever before. “Things have become exponentially more challenging for families in the east of Christchurch,” she said. “There is absolutely genuine poverty in this community that can’t be helped by the families that are living in it.

“It’s time for the rest of New Zealand to really wake up to the fact that many of our children are not getting the lives that we had when we were children.” Ms Smith said she now relies on food and clothing provided by businesses and charities like KidsCan to ensure her students don’t go hungry during the day.

“When you’re hungry you can’t learn. So for some children who come to school with no breakfast or lunch we’re able to provide the food. We’re filling a real need,” she says. KidsCan figures show the charity now supports 700 schools and a record 30,000 children every week across the country.

Members of the Arawa Canoe Club and Canterbury Rowing are hoping for safer changes to the river’s traffic lanes. ECan has required the clubs to consult with other river users and the board. The community board had agreed to support the proposed changes.

Chisnallwood marks 50 years

Plan to narrow North New Brighton road •From page 1 Motorists have lost control there, including a drink driver who smashed into her fence. Potholes and other road damage following the

earthquakes are also a concern for Miss Smith. “They don’t have warnings for any of the pot holes.” “You have to go 10km/h over some of the bigger potholes,

they have signs up saying 30km/h but you still have to slow right down for them,” said Miss Smith. She said her car has received a lot of stone chips over the years.

A decision on the plan will be made by the Coastal Burwood Community Board in December. Work for the project will not begin until mid-2018.

Your Local Views Funding gives confidence to plan ahead Manager of the Neighbourhood Trust Ginny Larsen writes about how three years of funding has secured the trust’s future to the benefit of the community Funding – the very word is enough to send chills up the spine of most not-for-profit organisations. As the manager of Neighbourhood Trust, (the community arm of St Albans Baptist Church), a local not-for-profit working mainly in the Mairehau, Shirley and St Albans part of town, I feel like half my life is taken up with funding applications and accountabilities. So it is a nice surprise to have some funders making the process a bit easier by putting three-year funding as an option. This year both NZ Lotteries and the city council, through its community boards offered this alternative. And we are exceptionally grateful to the Papanui-Innes Community Board for its grant. It must be hugely difficult making decisions, especially as the funds available to them have been cut by $85,000.

So what does this mean for an organisation to have funds guaranteed for three years? It gives us confidence to plan and look ahead, to know we can retain our wonderfully effective staff and provide appropriate training to keep them up-to-date. It means we can continue to offer our community consistent, community-led work at a high level to a variety of sectors – the Golden Connections programme for over-60s; from exercise classes to community days; from free English as a second language classes to OSCAR programmes to the Pay It Forward collective of over 50 local designers, selling their products through the store at 49 Nancy Ave. It also means we can dream a little about working with our community in different ways, supporting and mentoring, listening to their aspirations for their whanau.

Kendra Wilkie Street – The Christchurch School of Gymnastics has a 100year lease with the city council which needs to be honoured. The first location was shot down because it infringed on a rugby field. Now they aren’t happy with the second location? Hundreds of children use these facilities each week. It is a blessing that CSG can remain in the area. Why are people complaining? Maria Mann – Oh, get over yourselves. It’s a great idea to have the school of gymnastics by QE II.

Hungerford helps Canty team to third

Located in The Old School, formerly Central New Brighton School, the community group is aiming to sew 300 reusable bags to reduce plastic consumption. Run by co-founders Bridget Allen and Samantha Fay, the project runs in conjunction with the New Brighton FoodTogether hub. FoodTogether is a collective of organisations selling cheap fruit

and vegetables. The New Brighton hub, located at St Faith’s Church, is one of 40 distribution hubs in Canterbury and offers a $12 bag of fruit and vegetables, enough to feed a family of four. Ms Allen gets curtain material cut-offs donated from businesses such as Hubbers, Millers and McKenzie and Willis. Each bag requires 2m of material.

Lindisfarne Nursery School Lindisfarne Nursery School was established by Tricia Cuthbert in 1987 and remains part of the Cuthbert family today. We are committed to Christchurch, to our community, our Lindisfarne families, and most importantly the futures and happiness of our children. We believe in developing children’s

feelings of self-worth, and encouraging tolerance and understanding of others. Our teachers all hold a Diploma of Teaching in Early Childhood, and one holds a Diploma of Teaching in Primary as well as early childhood. She prepares the four year olds for school through an informal and brief daily ‘lesson’ time which the children love to take part in. We have a separate nursery with an outdoor area where the children discover and explore. We are a strong multi-cultural centre with committed teachers who embrace and celebrate diversity for our families. Morning and afternoon tea and a cooked lunch are provided, and we welcome visitors.

Keeping up with what girls want includes Herbology with Professor Sprout Part of the magic of being a girl-led organisation is that GirlGuiding New Zealand can offer camps and activities that girls really love. A recent example is a Harry Potter camp held in Christchurch by Westburn Guides and Brownies which saw girls enjoying lessons on herbology, potions, duels, Quiddich and care of magical creatures.

Coach leads SBHS team to top of mountain biking champs „„ By Sophie Cornish SHIRLEY BOYS’ High School mountain biking coach Pete Beswick finally has the trophy he’s been waiting four years for. The trophy was won by his team of Shirley students at the South Island mountain biking championships in Dunedin. “I’ve been eyeing it up, it is the fourth year in a row that I’ve had my eyes set on that trophy,” he said. Five SBHS students finished in the top 10 of their individual categories, generating enough points for the school to finish first with 1102 points. Mt Aspiring College finished second with 1057 points. The overall individual category included three races – cross-country, downhill, and ‘super-D’,

a less technical version of the downhill race with more pedalling. Beswick said he has witnessed a real growth in the sport across the country and within the SBHS. “I started this club (at the school) five years ago with six people, now this year we had about 35 people sign up.” Beswick said the competition was met with thunder, lightning, a downpour of rain and “inches of mud” on the first day of competition. SBHS student Indy Hawthorne took the best overall individual result with fourth in the under-16 grade. He finished second in the cross-country race, a huge achievement, Beswick said. “The cross-country was

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.

Jarrod Bishop

'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.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

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

True

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.
