Lincoln family makes a splash over holidays Weedons

residents to help fight quarry plan

GREAT FUN: Mike Brown and his daughters Montana (left) and Jaz leap into the water at the Christchurch Yacht Club in Moncks Bay, making the most of the summer sun. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

„„ By Julia Evans IT MAY be a bit of a drive from Lincoln to the Christchurch Yacht Club. But Mike Brown said it wouldn’t be a proper summer without loading two of his daughters, a few towels and some food into the car to make the half hour trip to

Moncks Bay. He was heading back to work the following day. So the afternoon out was one last hurrah on his holiday break. “You’ve just got to spend summer around the water, it wouldn’t be right otherwise,” he said. Mr Brown’s twin daughters,

Jaz and Montana, 14, enjoyed the swim. “It’s good for the girls. The water is really good for them,” he said. Jaz seemed a bit of a water baby, but the cool temperature meant it took a little more convincing before Montana hit the water. In fact, Mr Brown had to throw her in.

“You’re going in, don’t worry,” he said as she went in with a great splash. Fortunately for Montana and Jaz, there was one tradition that they could look forward to after a day in the sun. “There’s nothing like coming down here and we always get a big ice cream on the way home,” Mr Brown said.

„„ By Emily O’Connell WEEDONS residents are backing their Templeton neighbours in a bid to stop plans for a new quarry development. Two weeks ago, Fulton Hogan put forward a plan for a quarry on a 170ha section of land on Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones Rds which borders Weedons and Templeton. More than 200 people gathered in St Saviour’s Anglican Church on Kirk Rd on Wednesday to discuss the proposal. Weedons Residents’ Association secretary Gary Doyle said the group will be supporting its Templeton neighbours as much as it can. “All we can do is try and fight it as well,” he said. Mr Doyle said traffic is going to be a major problem for the area. “Maddisons Rd and Jones Rd are not suitable for a lot of heavy traffic, they’re not wide enough,” he said. Templeton Residents’ Association chairman Garry Kilday said Wednesday’s meeting was very successful. •Turn to page 6

from the editor’s desk WEEDONS RESIDENTS have responded to their Christchurch city neighbours and weighed in on the battle over another quarry plan (see page 1). The quarry is in the Selwyn District but the people who will be affected most by any potential dust are in Templeton – Christchurch city turf. The Selwyn District Council and Environment Canterbury will sign off consents, which means Templeton people will desperately need help from their Weedons neighbours. At this point they are ready to help. A major blue last week. I spelled volunteer firefighter Steve McLennan’s name incorrectly in this column. No excuses, just simply a momentary lapse in attention.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding CONCERNS Sheffield residents could lose their community hall have been put to rest. While the ownership of the Sheffield Community Hall is to be legally transferred over to the district council, it has assured residents if it was to ever sell the building, it will be offered back to the community first. It means muchneeded earthquake Douglas repairs for the hall Marshall are able to get under way by the district council without the risk of the hall being sold off in the future. It comes after the SheffieldWaddington Community Committee were told by the district council in October if it did not sign over full ownership of the hall, funding for the repairs would be cut. The issue was due to the ownership of the hall being under the name of the Sheffield Community Hall Incorporated Society which legally no longer exists due to it being removed

RESOLVED: The Sheffield community have been reassured they will not lose their community hall. ​

from the Register of Societies in 2000 because of inactivity. But the community committee has since agreed to the re-establishment of the incorporated society and will transfer the hall to the district council at a notional $1. The ownership transfer is likely to be completed within the next two months, a district council spokesman told Selwyn Times. In a letter to Sheffield residents, the district council’s property and commercial manager

Douglas Marshall said a concern in the community the hall could be sold was valid but easily allayed. Under the Local Government Act 2002 and Public Works Act 1981 if a public authority sells a property such as a hall or associated land it must first offer back the property to the previous owner. “Accordingly the district council would have to offer back the hall to the Sheffield community and would do so for the same price as the district council paid

being a notional $1,” he said. Nearly $300,000 was approved by the district council in March last year to go towards seismic strengthening of the hall. A district council spokesman said a building consent is likely to be issued early next month so work on the hall is yet to begin. It is expected the hall will be completed by June. Community committee chairwoman Val McKenzie said she is happy about the outcome. But former mayor Bill Woods, who was involved in the issue, said the district council originally tried to frighten people into agreeing handing over the hall when they didn’t need to. “If they had just gone ahead and issued a building consent the hall would be finished now. Then the ownership of the hall was a separate issue all together,” he said.

CAR LANDS UPSIDE DOWN The driver of a vehicle which flipped and landed upside down on a railway line in Dunsandel walked away with minor injuries. The car landed directly on the railway line which intersects Main South Rd on a sharp corner before the Dunsandel township on Friday before 6am. Ambulance staff assessed and treated a 20-year-old female at the scene. Dunsandel chief fire officer Ian Chatterton said while he didn’t want to speculate, the driver may have been going too fast. Selwyn Times was unable to contact police in time for comment. FIRE STATION CALL OUTS The Rolleston Volunteer Fire Brigade has released the number of fire call-outs it attended last year.

Councillors give their big plans District councillors have outlined their top priorities for 2018. Georgia O’Connor-Harding reports A NEW health hub and town centre for Rolleston are key priorities for the district council this year. Selwyn Times asked district councillors what the most important issues were districtwide and in their wards. District councillors Pat McEvedy and Grant Miller are both working to get the health hub up and running in Rolleston. Cr McEvedy said he wants to “keep pushing along” the project. “I think that is a Selwynwide project that will benefit everybody,” he said. The health hub is in the district council’s Annual Plan and aims to improve access to healthcare and social services for Selwyn residents. Cr Miller said it is essential that a growing area like Selwyn has enough medical and social services to meet the needs of residents. “I am pretty confident we are

going to get it over the line,” he said. Cr Miller said it is likely the health hub will be operating in 2019. This year the district council will be working on the design, securing tenants and a business case. Meanwhile, district councillor Craig Watson is calling for work to get under way on building a new town square in Rolleston. It is his bid to put a “heart” into Selwyn, he said. “Rolleston now has become the centre of Selwyn as far as population is concerned and we don’t have a town centre,” he said. His views are backed by Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall who said it is critical the Rolleston town centre master plan is up and running. Cr Watson said there are few places in the last 20-30 years which have had the opportunity to build a town centre and it is important they get it right. “We don’t want it to be a

But Cr Watson said there needs to be more focus on community spaces, rather than the library. Key focuses in the Malvern Ward included road maintenance and continuing to upgrade narrow roads which are heavily used by trucks and tankers, district councillor John Morten said. He said any road that is a main thoroughfare to the Fonterra factory in Darfield is a concern – including Telegraph and Leaches Rds. Long-term, Cr Morten wants a reticulated sewage system to be installed in Darfield at a cost affordable to residents.

for the year From an Ellesmere point-ofview, Cr McEvedy would like to see the Doyleston-Leeston Cycleway completed this year. District councillor Murray Lemon said it is important business opportunities are created throughout the entire Selwyn district. In the Springs ward, a key priority for Cr Lyall is ensuring funding remains in the Long Term Plan 2018-2028 for a new hall and community centre in Prebbleton. Consultation on the Long Term Plan will start this year. Cr Lyall said money also needs to be spent on improving intersections, roundabouts and traffic lights in the Prebbleton area, and funding also needs to be established for the Lincoln town centre plan. Cr Miller said he would like to see car parking improved in Lincoln before further work on the town plan begins. Lincoln businesses are worried about the removal of 75 car parks on Gerald St which was approved as part of the plan. He said he would also like to see the $206 million research centre at Lincoln University up and running.

Weedons residents to fight quarry plan DISCUSSION: More than 200 people gathered at St Saviour’s Anglican Church on Kirk Rd to talk about the quarry proposal.

PLANS: The site of Fulton Hogan’s proposed quarry on a 170ha section of land on Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones Rds.

Mr Kilday said. Selwyn district councillor Mark Alexander agreed with Mr Doyle that traffic could be an issue. But he doubted dust from the quarry would be. “I would say based on the new Rolleston quarry’s operation, dust should not be an issue as any new consents should not allow any dust to cross the quarry’s boundaries,” he said.

In a letter sent to residents near the proposed quarry, Fulton Hogan said it would be there for 25 to 40 years. “We see this location as being suitable because the site has few neighbours and is close to State Highway 1.” Mr Alexander had a suggestion for the association’s group: “My advice is to form a new, separate, incorporated society to submit against these consent

•From page 1 Said Mr Kilday: “We had an awesome turn out. It was an emotive session because there were people there who are so badly affected.” Mr Kilday said the association is now creating an action group from people who attended the meeting. “The majority [of people] who were there are going to be in this group. Nobody wants this Garry Kilday thing [the quarry] where it is,” he said. Mr Kilday said the group will be placing signs to protest the quarry on houses and in different spots in Templeton. Mark He said a concern Alexander the group has other than the health risks is whether there will be public consultation on the resource consent application. “Environment Canterbury and the Selwyn District Council will meet to decide whether the resource consent will be decided in private or whether public participation is permitted,”

applications. Be prepared to spend $150,000 to get reasonable conditions on the consent,” he said. Fulton Hogan said it has started seeking feedback from neighbours and community groups. The feedback will be “considered in how we develop those plans further along with any consent applications that we make later in the year,” Fulton

Hogan said in a statement yesterday. It also said the quarry will be carried out to the “highest standards of regulatory compliance.” “Especially the health and safety of both our staff and the public and a strong duty of care for our environment.” Mr Kilday said they are hoping to have another public meeting in the next few weeks.

Honeymooners plunge 20m off SH73 „„ By Andrew King A FRENCH couple will never forget their honeymoon in New Zealand after managing to walk away from their vehicle after it plunged 20m down a bank. The couple, in their mid20s, were heading towards the West Coast on State Highway 73, Springfield, when their vehicle left the road. Another motorist saw

the incident and reported it to emergency services. “They are so lucky they walked away with only minor back and seat belt injuries,” a Westpac Rescue Helicopter intensive care paramedic said. “Also, they were lucky someone saw them go off the road as there were no visible signs there had been a crash.” The couple’s vehicle was wedged down the bank, which was fortunate as it

could have tumbled a lot further, the paramedic said. They were airlifted to Christchurch Hospital as a precaution and were shaken up over the ordeal, he said. The Springfield, Kirwee and Sheffield volunteer fire brigades attended the scene with police. Chief fire officer Grant Williams said it was amazing the couple walked away uninjured.

SOME PEOPLE will write about the loss of water races and the effect on the wildlife. I have an alternative perspective that many do not consider. Water races were introduced to the Canterbury Plains that lacked reliable flowing streams to enable stock to be farmed on the parched land in summer. The water races served a dual purpose and that was to provide an alternative means of household water to supplement the capture of rain water in areas where the underground water table was inaccessible such as Darfield. Most houses that were supplied with race water had a third tap in the kitchen for drinking water fed from a tank that collected the rain water. Before the water races, drains were dug to ensure that settlements were not flooded in the winter or in times of excessive rain due to roads being constructed with the crown of the road being higher than the land alongside. With the construction of the water races sometimes existing drains were utilised to carry the water, especially in the townships, so they served to carry both the water race and stormwater. As time progressed, the water races became a habitat for creatures that either lived in the water or relied on the availability of access to water for sustainability.

In the towns some people beautified the races by maintaining the edges and some even planted flowers or special grasses. Eventually potable water supplies became available and the need for water races in the towns became obsolete. With reliable water supplies, the water races were closed off. This meant that more water was available to a system that was stretched in the summer months to supply water for stock as originally intended with some stormwater being disposed of by soak pits where there was a low water table.   Turning off the water in these races left a channel where the water used to run, resulting in a call from the residents to fill them in. Filling in a race that was not a dual purpose one was not a problem, but there were many that provided drainage in the wet season and only carried water when the rainfall was more than the land could absorb. If there happened to be

a few dry seasons in a row the drain would appear to be not needed and the original reason for it being there in the first place was forgotten. Calls would be made to have this particular channel filled in as it now served no purpose. This is what happened on Bealey Rd in Hororata. After the channel was filled in there was no apparent problem as the wet seasons were not sufficient to cause major flooding.   How wrong could this thinking be; the area along Bealey Rd has been inundated with surface water that has nowhere to go due to the drain being filled and no alternative provided to remove the excess water. The district council has lost several legal proceedings and spent well over $80,000 and still the two properties on the corner of Hawkins and Bealey Rd flood in severe wet conditions and the houses fronting onto Bealey Rd have excess water problems with septic tanks and stormwater. None of this flooding took place when the drain along Bealey Rd was operational. Yet the district council still continues to ignore this situation.

Upper South Island travel guide PICTON

PLAN YOUR JOURNEY – PICTON TO CHRISTCHURCH State Highway 1 (SH1) north of Kaikōura opened to daytime traffic in December, restoring the coastal highway link from Picton to Christchurch. The re-opening of SH1 gives people two viable options for travel around the upper South Island, with the alternate route (via state highways 63, 6, 65 and 7 through Lewis Pass) remaining a reliable 24/7 option.

IMPORTANT BEFORE YOU TRAVEL Check routes are open and get estimated travel times. For real-time travel information visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c or freephone 0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49).

Make sure you allow enough time for your journey, whichever route you chose. Unexpected events, such as a crash, high volumes of traffic, ongoing wet weather or seismic activity, can cause delays. Ongoing roadworks and reduced speed limits in places mean that it won’t be possible for you to make up time.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON SH1

1

Parts of the road will still be under construction, so there will be some unsealed sections, lane closures with Stop/Go controls and speed restrictions. There will be night closures (8.30pm – 7am) north of Kaikōura between Clarence and Mangamaunu, and between Goose Bay and Peketa in the south. Closure points will be monitored 24/7.

OPEN 24/7*

CHRISTCHURCH

* Conditions can change any time, so it is important to check the current status at least two hours before you travel and at key route decision points. Visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c or freephone 0800 4 HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49)

Consider road closure hours before starting your trip and leave enough time to be clear of these sections so you can continue your journey. The opening hours are subject to adverse weather and seismic activity. If there is a lot of rain or another significant event, we may have to close the road for short periods of time. It’s important to remember the safety of those using the highway, and working on it, will always be our top priority.

WORK HAS RAMPED UP IN JANUARY Following the road opening on 15 December, most of the work sites closed down to help with traffic flow over the busy Christmas period. The work programme is now back in full delivery which will have a significant effect on the coastal corridor. NZ Transport Agency Journey Manager Tresca Forrester says ‘It’s a balancing act to schedule the reinstatement work to have a minimal effect on travel time while also ensuring the work gets done. Drivers should now expect it to take at least 5 ½ to 6 hours to drive between Picton and Christchurch on SH1 but should allow plenty of extra time in case of delays. Check www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c for the latest information.’

BE ROAD COURTEOUS • No stopping on SH1 within the closure areas outside of designated stop bays. • Be patient and cautious. Road conditions will be unfamiliar to many drivers, so a little bit of patience will go a long way. • Follow all traffic signs and any instruction given by road crew. • Obey speed limits to keep all road users safe. • Stay focused around rail lines. Expect trains at any time. • Keep fresh by taking breaks and supporting communities on the route.

Feared but harmless Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln.

Rain eases fire risk in region ITSY BITSY SPIDER: Cambridgea spiders are variable in size but their long legs can span 100mm. ​

ONE OF the largest spiders around my backyard in Lincoln is the sheet-web spider of the genus cambridgea, a genus that comprises 31 New Zealand endemic species. Their webs are horizontal structures that can be almost a metre across, but have fine,

hand basins or baths. They are variable in size but their long legs can span 100mm. This combined with the large, pale abdomen and large fangs can make these spiders look imposing. They are, however, quite harmless.

RECENT RAIN has eased the fire risk across the district. But authorities say it will only take a few hot nor’westerly days to push it up again. “There is still a lot of summer to go and conditions can change quickly,’’ said Darrin Woods, Christchurch/Selwyn rural fire district principal rural fire officer. He said if the weather returns to as it was before Christmas, when temperatures were routinely in the high-20s and early 30s, the countryside will very quickly dry out, escalating the fire risk. “We’re also asking that on hot days, particularly when it’s windy, people take extreme care when doing any activities that may produce sparks such as grinding, welding or even mowing lawns on stony ground,’’ Mr Woods said. It is important people report any fires or smoke to 111 immediately, he said. A restricted fire season has been in place across Christchurch, Selwyn, Hurunui and Waimakariri districts since the start of December.  This means people must apply for a permit if they want to light a fire in open air. Anyone who lights a fire with-

out a permit can expect a visit from Fire and Emergency New Zealand. It will extinguish any fire that does not meet the conditions of the restricted fire season. To find out how to apply for a fire permit, go to www.checkitsalright.nz. If you don’t have access to the website, call Fire and Emergency New Zealand on 0800 658 628. Mr Woods says Fire and Emergency New Zealand is constantly monitoring the conditions and will consider changes to the fire season status if further forecast rain arrives over the coming weeks and the countryside continues to green up.

Milligan, Ransley win 86s

Rolleston cricketer meets her idol

„„ By Andrew King PREBBLETON drivers Jack Milligan and Jaden Ransley won a race each in the latest round of the Toyota 86 championship. Milligan shot to the top of the leader board in the championship after winning the opening race of the weekend at Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna. But it was his 15-year-old friend, Ransley, who put on a show. He showed great speed in the first race to finish fourth, before crossing the line just behind title contender Michael Scott in the second race. He saved his best for last with an uncontested win in the third race, leading from start to finish – his first win of the series. Ransley said it was one to remember. “To not only get my first race win, but my first round win in front of all my supporters and sponsors was an amazing feeling,” he said. Milligan is still battling for the title, with two more rounds to run. Round four starts on Friday at Teretonga Park, Invercargill.

SPORTS A DREAM came true for a young cricket fan last week. Rolleston resident Sophie Forward, 7, joined captains Kane Williamson and Sarfraz Ahmed on the pitch for the coin toss before the Black Caps vs Pakistan match to help decide the batting and bowling order in Nelson. Sophie attends West Rolleston Primary School and likes watching cricket on the weekends and playing after school. She loves all sports and hopes to become a teacher when she is older. “My favourite part was getting to hand Kane Williamson the coin, he is my favourite cricketer,” she said. ANZ head of sponsorship Sue McGregor said Sophie was one of 27 kids selected to take part in the pivotal pre-match moment during this year’s summer of

19

cricket. “We hope that connecting young players with their heroes will help inspire the next generation of Kiwi cricketers. There’s a magic that happens when fans take part in the match and meet these great players. We try to get these young cricketers involved as much as we can,” she said. The ANZ coin toss activity is part of its support for cricket at all levels in New Zealand. ANZ is also giving keen cricketers the chance to share what help they need to get on top of their game this summer. Whether it’s new gear, tips from their heroes or just inspiration – ANZ could make it happen. Applications are now open at anzcricketworld. co.nz.

JONES ROAD ROLLESTON

Get ready for the year ahead The businesses at Jones Road are already open and the teams back on deck to help you out.

Your tyres may be worn or brakes under par after towing the caravan or boat to the Sounds or to

another holiday destination. Looking after your vehicle now will prepare it for the year ahead, avoiding inconvenience when the busy schedule kicks in. It might also prevent an expensive bill if your car breaks down, something no one wants just after Christmas. Simon at Rolleston Diesel and Petrols, 839 Jones Road will be happy to check your vehicle ensuring smooth motoring in the year ahead. Give him a call on 03 347 7110. Jones Road Auto Keeping an eye on the tyres and brakes is important for safety reasons and as a requirement of your motor vehicle insurance, especially now that many vehicles only have annual Warrant of Fitness checks. Cooling systems, the anti-freeze and windscreen wipers also need monitoring while the electrical connections, bearings and brakes on the boat trailer deserve a look over as water can corrode these. Jones Road Auto can take care of all mechanical servicing and repairs along with any tyre, WOF or auto electrical needs. You will find them at 851 Jones Road, phone 347 4020.

Laser Electrical You are likely to spend more evening time in the garden with outdoor lighting installed by Laser Electrical. Indoors, a heat pump running on cool will make summer more pleasant helping you sleep through those hot nights. Now is also the time to prepare for winter by having your heat pump serviced or a new one installed, another task that Laser Electrical can take care of. If looking to upgrade your downlights they can fit new LEDs. These use less electricity and as the units are sealed, insulation may be placed over top (depending on the unit). You can contact Laser Electrical on 0800LASER4U, email Rolleston@ laserelectrical.co.nz, or call into 831 Jones Road. They are open Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm while the team is on call 24/7. For more information, visit www. laserelectrical.co.nz.

Real Petfood If the pet food supplies have run low over the holiday period, Real Petfood is handy up for stocking up. Your pet will love the delicious, healthy, high quality pet meat. They have fresh and frozen cut portions and mixes prepared especially for puppies, dogs or cats. These include beef, horse, chicken and rabbit meat and mince, tripe, chicken necks and their popular cat, dog, puppy and musterers’ mixes. Real Petfood is located opposite Jones Road Auto at 855 Jones Road.

Whether it is your motor vehicle that needs some attention or your pets feeding, Jones Road (close to Rolleston’s Izone) is the place to find Jones Road Auto, Laser Electrical, Real Petfood and Rolleston Diesel & Petrols.

The Tai Tapu Hotel has been a landmark alongside the Halswell River since 1856 and during that time has gained a reputation for great hospitality in a truly delightful rural setting.

There are comfortable indoor and outdoor areas that include a sun-drenched courtyard and large sheltered garden, along with a purpose built function room that is separate from the hotel itself. This room offers your own private space making it ideal for any special occasion, whether a wedding, birthday parties, anniversary or some other important event. It has its own bar and doubledoors accessing a large sunny patio with steps leading down to a private garden so is perfect on a hot day or balmy s u m m e r evening.

BACK TO SCHOOL 2018

9,500 Learners on the move again!

Working together for a positive school year A positive attitude to learning is fundamental for laying down the foundations for success throughout a child’s school years. Fostering a supportive attitude to education in the home, translates to children being more enthusiastic about attending school and making the most of their learning experiences so they become mature self-directed learners. Being prepared for school supports this. Wearing the correct clean and tidy uniform, having the right equipment, having established routines at home where homework is regularly completed with bags packed and lunches prepared the night before, and arriving at school on time, are all important. Such practises build positive attitudes, while avoiding missing lessons ensures a child acquires the underpinning knowledge and skills essential for future learning. Encourage your child with praise not pressure, helping them to develop problem solving skills where they work things out for themselves, in their play and school work.

23

If unsure about any aspect of your child’s time at school ask questions and encourage your child to do the same. Adopt a diplomatic approach. If your child complains about any aspect of school life, take time to learn the facts bringing any concerns to the attention of their teacher to ensure resolution so your child flourishes and enjoys their time at school.

From Monday 29 January, over 9,500 Selwyn children will be travelling to school, up from 8,000 from 2017! Selwyn School Road Safety Co-ordinator Stephanie Hautler is reminding everyone to keep their eyes peeled for our young people heading back to school by bus, bike, car, scooter and on foot. With the lovely summer weather it’s a great opportunity to get active with your child. Even if you are pushed for time parking a block back from school so your child can scoot or walk is good for them both physically and mentally, develops their road safety skills and helps with overall congestion at the school gate. “Road safety awareness is a pretty important life skill and starts developing

when you are young. Take every opportunity to educate children on how to cross a road and watch for cars coming out of driveways” says Ms Hautler. “The safety of all children is paramount,” says Senior Sergeant Pete Stills of the New Zealand Police. “Police will be patrolling outside schools and pre-schools to reduce the risk posed by speeding vehicles, illegal parking and dangerous driving manoeuvres whilst everyone gets used to children being back at school.” Road safety resources for parents and children are available from Selwyn District Council. Email stephanie. hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phone 347 2705.

School travel safety tips: • Be bright be seen, ask your school for a safety vest. • Tackle the routes together talking about sneaky driveways and blind corners. • Get out and active together to reduce the chaos at the school gate. • Wear your helmets, this goes for caregivers too, young people are watching you!

In 2018, Lincoln High School students will have some amazing opportunities to experience other cultures. Seventeen students and two staff members will travel to China in April on a trip organised by the Confucius Institute at the University of Canterbury, and supported by the Office of the Chinese Language Council International. During their two week stay, students will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Chinese language and culture. In the July holidays, twenty students and two staff members will visit Samoa. The focus of their trip will be on social action through community work, while experiencing what it is like to live and attend school in a different culture. For twenty-five year 12 and 13 Classical

Studies students, visiting places like the Roman Forum in Rome or the Acropolis in Greece, will greatly enhance their understanding of the connections between the cultural history of Western Europe and New Zealand in the 21st century. Lastly, there will be some significant challenges, including physically and mentally, for the 33 students and four staff members who will be visiting Nepal for three weeks at the end of the year. Students will spend one of the three weeks undertaking community volunteer work while an important aspect of this World Challenge expedition is that all the planning, including the itinerary, budget and accommodation is completed by the students, along with fundraising for the cost of the trip.

Phone: 03 318 6828 • Email: principal@windwhistle.school.nz www.windwhistle.school.nz

Rolleston’s New principal for Windwhistle 1st school School Since opening in 1893, Rolleston’s oldest school has grown from one large wooden building and 46 students to a modern school environment catering for the educational needs of well over 800 students. Two new purpose-built teaching spaces were added to Rolleston School (Te Ahi Kaiomako) in 2017 and an app allowing parents and caregivers easy access to school information. With an ethos of striving, driving and thriving students at Rolleston School learn to become ‘express’ learners who are engaged, resourceful, self-managed and prepared to experiment and persist until they achieve success.

At the close of 2017, the Windwhistle School community farewelled their Principal of seven years, Frances Nimmo. The school’s new Principal, Bronwen Seaward previously fulfilled a number of teaching and management roles at Darfield High School, and more recently at West Melton Primary School. The school’s role will increase in 2018 with the new students joining a happy school community where individual needs are recognised and met, and there is considerable support from parents and extended family, many of whom also attended Windwhistle School.

After an amazing foundation year, welcoming new learners and their whanau into Lemonwood Grove, the school looks forward to its second year of establishment. “Families are moving into Selwyn from around Canterbury, New Zealand and across the globe leading to a diverse and unique school community and culture,” says Principal, Sean Bailey. Enrolment is expected to be close to 160 at the start of 2018 however, during the year this figure is likely to rise due to the building activity in Faringdon. At Lemonwood Grove, the school’s curriculum is lived out through its school wide values of Grit, Responsibility, Integrity and Thinking. “It’s great to see our learners demonstrating these values when collaborating and relating to others,” says Sean. During the foundation year a number of school events and experiences were held with outstanding support from the community. A number of schools and organisations also visited Lemonwood Grove, interested in how learners’ needs are met, and their curiosity and creativity sparked.

Lemonwood Grove School

Lemonwood Grove is fortunate to be part of a ‘Community of Learning’ where they work closely with 11 neighbouring schools to increase student achievement. One new initiative for 2018 will be providing regular opportunities for the school community to visit and learn about ‘why’, and what they do in terms of teaching and learning. To find out more about this awesome school, email Sarah at office@lemonwoodgrove.school.nz to arrange a time to have a look around. Lemonwood Grove School will start back on Wednesday, 31 January, 2018 while the office will be open 9am-3pm on the 24th, 25th, 26th, 29th, and 30th January.

For any crops going in the ground this month, it is vital to give the soil a boost with nutrients and goodies before replanting. Once that is done, soak the soil overnight and plant the next day. This limits stress on the new seedlings and helps prevent transplant shock. Watering in the new plants with a

Back to the

daily grind For most of us, the summer holidays are done and dusted and we are back to the reality of work life. If you have spent a bit of time away from home, your gardens will more than likely be ready for a bit of TLC. Here are our top garden tasks to help get your garden back into tip top shape.

soil. And don’t be too proud to net your crop to eliminate any feathered residents of the garden helping themselves to your berries. CHILLIES A sunny, hot spot suits chillies best. Feed them with tomato or strawberry food, a type of fertiliser that promotes flowers rather than leaves. While chillies and capsicums are closely related, they differ a little in how you look after them, especially if you fancy some heat in your chillies. Once the chillies are about finger length, reduce the amount of water the plants get. You may well feel mean, but if it is flavour you are after this method works – less moisture in the chillies helps intensify the flavour. If you prefer more heat, water as per usual.

LET’S GET

GardEninG

INTELLIGRO OFFERS:

Veggie Gardens Check your veggie beds regularly to ensure that you are harvesting the produce as soon as it is ready. If your plants have grown really fast and now have flowers and seeds on them, it is time to pull them out. They have “gone to seed” typically due to a lack of water, and won’t grow any produce now. Keep up the water! Make sure you give them a good soak every few days rather than a small watering daily. If your plants have been in for a while now, it might pay to add some fertiliser or organic matter to the soil to help keep the nutrient supply available for them to sustain healthy growth.

Tie up your Tomatoes

General Gardening

If you haven’t done so already, stake up your tomatoes to give them that extra support. Remove any laterals (side-ways growing shoots) and any excess leaves that are accumulating at the bottom of the plant. This will help to create more space for airflow and light to get in.

 Raise the height of your mower to keep the lawns a bit longer.

 Pull out or spray off the weeds as you see them. They compete with your plants for space, water and nutrients.  Keep safe in the garden. Wear protective gear such as sunblock, hats, sunglasses and gloves. Make sure you wash your hands after you are finished.

The Romance of Yesterday .... On a 971 m2 section A unique and exquisite property built during the 1910’s still being in such a good condition is hard to come by in this area. Sited on a 971m2 section, this property showcases many character features such as delicate ceiling roses, ornate hallway arches, leadlight windows and two ornate fireplaces. However this home is not all classic, it offers a touch of present day vibrancy with its updated kitchen and modern unique bathroom. If this wasn’t fantastic enough already, it’s location is wonderful too, as it is handy to public transport and a quick stroll to Hornby Mall, making it a great home for families.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Researching when building new If you are planning to have a new house built at some time during the year now is a good time to begin researching building options, before the pressure of the year ahead fully arrives. After the holiday break, you are likely to be feeling relaxed and refreshed so will have a clear mind to consider the choices available. If you still have to sort out your building site, walk and drive around the various towns and subdivisions and check out the show home villages throughout the district and beyond. Show homes are great way to start the search for ideas and learn about potential building companies. These can be found at:

Research helps identify the features you like.

• Rolleston’s Faringdon (Canterbury’s largest show home village); • West Melton’s Wilfield subdivision; • the Flemington and Te Whāriki subdivisions in Lincoln; • Stirling Park at Prebbleton; Show homes are great way to start • Wigram Skies; the search. • Longhurst in Halswell; • Prestons Park in Marshlands; and A visit to the showrooms of building • the Sovereign Lakes and Silverstream supply companies will also be very helpful subdivisions at Kaiapoi. in the task of identifying features you would like in your home.

REAA - Disclosure rules Show when selling a home home

Real estate advertisements are designed to make every property look like a dream buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative aspects and linger on the good points, wanting you to be drawn in by the sundrenched location rather than be put off by lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over a property’s quirks, but lying by omission or design about more serious matters is not allowed. If you do this when selling your property you may be at risk of being sued by the purchaser. When you’re ready to sell your property it’s a good idea to get legal advice about your obligations before you sign an agency agreement. Most of these agreements, which set out the terms and conditions of your contract with the real estate agent, require you to confirm that you are unaware of any undisclosed defects in the property and that you haven’t withheld any information about it. As a seller, you must also confirm that your property has all the necessary consents and code compliance certificates for any building work. Any outstanding consents, including ones that involve any works at a neighbour’s property, should be disclosed to the agent. This is important for several reasons. Licensed real estate agents have clear obligations when it comes to disclosure. They must not mislead a seller or a potential buyer, or withhold any information. While it’s not up to the agent to uncover any hidden defects in a property, they must tell any prospective buyers what they know. Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008, if licensed real estate agents suspect that a property may have a defect then they are obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise potential buyers of any risks. For example, if a property is next door to a proposed new development, or if it’s in an area that’s been subject to flooding, the agent must tell

prospective buyers rather than turning a blind eye. If your property may be prone to weathertightness issues thanks to its age or cladding, then the agent may have to disclose this potential risk to prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have any weathertightness problems it may be worth getting this confirmed in an expert report by a qualified building inspector who has professional indemnity insurance, understands the strict legal requirements of their role and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standard. This will help make the sale process as efficient as possible. If you know there are issues with the property, whether it’s something small like a garage door not working properly, or a bigger deal like an unconsented deck, it’s best to discuss them with the agent you are working with. They can help you decide how to manage the problem, whether that means fixing it, or disclosing it to potential buyers. However, a licensed real estate agent must not disclose any problems with your property to buyers without getting your consent first. If a

seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the agent is required to stop working for them rather than disclose any defects without consent. These rules offer more protection to buyers than the traditional attitude of ‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which assumed that the seller would always know more than the buyer and any sale was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers should always do their own research about a property before signing a sale and purchase agreement. Buyers should also ask the agent about anything they are concerned about, no matter how trivial it may seem. It’s far better to get an answer upfront than find out when it’s too late.
