Snaking past two intersections and a school, a human chain of children, police, and university students helped to shift a busy community hub to its new home. About 100 pairs of hands passed the contents of the Rowley Resource Centre as it shifted about 250m down the road. The novel approach was used as a way to shift the centre from 59 Rowley Ave to its future home at 89 Rowley Ave. Police, university students, residents, school pupils, local shop workers and church groups all participated.

Rowley is known as a lower socio-economic area. The community has rallied to bring Rowley together, starting with the human chain event. Resource centre manager Donna McAleer said the event was “symbolic� for the community. “These guys [Rowley Resource Centre] have been here for 25 years supporting and growing the community,� she said. “We really want to grow the community even more.� She and Rowley Avenue School principal Anthony Faitaua were new to their roles, and had a vision for the community.

“We want to build a strong community that’s focused on growing and empowering the community.� Pupils from Rowley Avenue School and Hillmorton High School were decked out in high visibility vests by the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team, with police monitoring safety. The resource consent for Rowley Resource Centre to operate out of the new building is in the process of coming through. The new building is not ready to operate out of, but the centre hopes to move in fully at the beginning of November.

Call to reopen library building

WOMAN INJURED IN CRASH A woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries after a two-vehicle crash in Sydenham on Friday. St John and the Fire Service were called to the crash at the intersection of Colombo and Wordsworth Sts at about 8.20am. Fire communications shift manager Brent Dunn said when they arrived a woman was trapped in one of the vehicles, and the jaws of life were needed to free her.


A lack of community facilities in Hoon Hay has prompted a plea for a disused children’s library to be reopened for public use. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board is ramping up its fight to have the former Hoon Hay Children’s Library building reopened to be used as a community space. Board members are worried with Centennial Hall out of action and its future unclear, there were few places for community groups to meet. The board has asked the city council to remove the Hoon Hay Rd building from the property disposal list. It also wants the city council to give the board the final say on the future use of the property. COMMUNITY FACILITY: Many Hoon Hay residents have fond memories of the former children’s library. The building has been vacant Inset: Paul McMahon building.

TEEN KNOCKED OFF BICYCLE A teenager was taken to hospital with minor injuries after he was knocked off his bicycle by a car in Waltham last week. St John was called to the scene on Wilsons Rd North, at 3.25pm on Thursday. He was taken to Moorhouse Medical Centre for further assessment and treatment. TRANSFER STATION CASE CLOSED The Environment Court has officially closed the case into the EnviroWaste transfer station in Sydenham. Lahmajou Company had initially appealed the resource consent application for EnviroWaste to operate out of an old railway shed on the corner of Cass and Colombo Sts. The company has since dropped its appeal because it is satisfied its concerns have been addressed. The case was closed on September 14. The transfer station is now in operation.

We ask National MPs how the Government has fared a year after being elected the recovery. Canterbury is enjoying a period of strong economic growth, and low unemployment of 3.1 per cent. This has been particularly noticeable in the manufacturing sector, with 6800 new manufacturing jobs created over the last year. As a Port Hills-based MP I have enjoyed seeing our communities grow and build. The rebuilt Halswell School is now open, great progress is being made in Ferrymead’s commercial areas, and we are making steady progress with residential rebuilds and repairs everywhere from Westmorland and Cashmere to Huntsbury, Heathcote Valley and beyond. The announcement of $9.4 million to build three cycleways connecting Port Hills communities such as Opawa and Woolston with the central city is great news. One of my priorities this year has been engaging with Port Hills residents in a meaningful way. In addition to meeting with many of you in my Ferrymead office, I have attended “Catch Up with Nuk”

Nuk Korako – Port Hills National List MP It has been one year since National formed another strong, stable Government following the 2014 election. It is also one year since I began my role as a List MP based in the Port Hills. It’s been a busy year as we have set out delivering on our promises for the Port Hills and for Christchurch. Throughout Canterbury, the rebuild is continuing at pace. This Government has backed our region all the way, committing $16.5 billion to

SOAP BOX meetings in cafés around the electorate, and I will be opening my Mobile Office at 145 Colombo St, Beckenham, every Monday from 10am-2pm. I have immensely enjoyed my first year as a List MP based in the Port Hills, and I am looking forward to engaging with our communities and seeing them go from strength to strength in the year ahead.

Ask Nuk a question.

Email our reporter and we will put that question to Nuk Korako. bridget.rutherford@ • Next week we invite Labour MPs to respond

Last week the Southern View asked readers whether it was time for the Sydenham Heritage Church rubble to be removed. We also asked whether it would be common sense for the Sydenham Heritage Trust to wait for the money to remove it. Gary Knight, Hoon Hay: It is essential and overdue that the city council, Environment Canterbury and the Sydenham Heritage Trust jointly ascertain the asbestos level within the Sydenham Heritage Church rubble, and adopt a pro-active attitude to contain and dispose of this eyesore at the Brougham and Colombo Sts site. This venture would receive accolades from many inclusive of Sydenham residents along with the Sydenham retail and business community, at present confronted with this blot on their urban landscape. The criteria of the 2000-2016 city council Long Term Plan to operate and provide funding for essential community projects is surely the catalyst to prioritise this procedure devoid of ratepayer revenue. This option being affordable within projected city council budgeting would ensure prompt action as opposed to any inherent delay by advancing revenue to Sydenham Heritage Trust for management and implementation of this operation.

City council property consultancy manager Angus Smith responds: At this stage the city council does not need to investigate and report on the costs of removing the rubble. The Sydenham Heritage Trust, to the council’s mutual benefit, has engaged professional advice to investigate the methodology options and costs. The trust is working through this process in collaboration with council staff and other agencies. Once this work is completed, staff will be in a position to report the matter back to council. The time frame for this investigative work being completed and reported is not known at this stage.

The Environment Court case into the EnviroWaste transfer station going into a former railway shed in Sydenham has officially closed. Are you disappointed the waste station has gone in, in spite off fierce opposition from locals? Do you think your voices have been heard?

ANTICIPATION: Developers hope construction to Coronation Corner will start early next year.

Interests pour in for new Selwyn St development BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Boutique clothing, yoga classes and a salon could be some of the new additions to Selwyn St. Valour Properties has received a number of expressions of interest for the new Coronation Corner development in Spreydon. Rosie Hobbs, of Valour Properties, said a cafe, a fruit and vegetable store, an ethnic takeaway store, a hairdressers, a yoga

studio, a boutique clothing store, a florist and a gift shop had all expressed interest. She said there had been a good response and the development was very exciting. Coronation Corner is currently going through the building consent process, but developers hoped construction would start early next year, she said. Plans show there will be about 15 individual spaces in the complex ranging from 83-350 sq m


in floor size. There will be 42 on-site shared car parks in the development. Ms Hobbs said it was aimed at catering to smaller, local businesses. “We want to have a variety that will meet the needs of the community.” The original Selwyn St shops suffered considerable damage in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and about 60 per cent of the buildings were lost or unusable.

Coronation Corner will be one of three post-earthquake developments on the street. A new retail building on the eastern side of Selwyn St went in last year with occupational health service Oh Well! and Pies & Coffee cafe both already in there. The city council is working with the owner of the neighbouring empty property on Selwyn St to discuss development options.

SEPARATING SUBURBS The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board will recommend to the city council that Hoon Hay and Hillmorton remain in the same ward as part of the Representation Review. The board received a deputation from a Hoon Hay resident outlining concerns with the proposal to separate the suburbs. In the current proposal Hoon Hay is part of the Spreydon ward, and Hillmorton is part of the Halswell ward. Submissions on the review close on October 9. BIN FIRE A fire crew from Addington was called to Elgin St, Sydenham, on Thursday at 10.11pm to a rubbish bin fire. Fire communications shift manager Brent Dunn said the fire was not being treated as suspicious and took a short time to extinguish. CORRECTION Last week the Southern View reported the Rotary Club of Christchurch South had pledged $2500 towards the building of a picnic table to go in Somerfield Park. This was incorrect. The Rotary Club of Garden City pledged the $2500 in conjunction with The Rotary Neighbourhood Project. Construction to the table began over the weekend. The table is expected to be installed on Saturday.

Jacqui Duncan


Stepping back from full-on role for a Jacqui Duncan is leaving her role of principal at Cashmere Primary School after 15 years at the helm. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about the role, what is next for her, and detentions How long have you been principal of Cashmere Primary? For 15 years as at the end of this year. It’s a fairly full-on job. I’ve been a principal for 30 years and I’ve been in teaching for 44 years so I’m not a spring chicken. But I think I am young enough to do something else so although I’m retiring from the principal’s role, I do intend to set myself up as an education consultant and do bits and pieces. So I’m looking forward to that and doing other things. So what will that consist of? I’m doing a little bit of this now, such as principal appraisals and school reviews. I may do one-off jobs for the Ministry of Education. But the emphasis on the move is in favour of life, not work. At the moment I do four principal appraisals, I do that on behalf of Cashmere Primary School so any fees earned go to the school. The benefit for me is

I am learning that job in preparation for what I’m about to do. If you’re not a life-long learner your doomed I think. What schools have you been at before Cashmere Primary? Before Cashmere Primary I was principal of Mairehau Primary School for five years. Before that I was at St Patrick’s School in Kaiapoi and before that I was at Our Lady of the Snows School in Methven. I’ve loved every school I’ve been in. I did do a stint of one year at Teachers College, which now Canterbury University, and I spent a year in their leadership programme. I’ve also worked in special education, I worked at van Asch Deaf Education Centre in Sumner. This ages me, but I was there in 1976, 77, 78. At that stage I had been teaching for three years. My first and second

years were actually at Cashmere Primary. So I began and finished here. It’s just the way life works out. Wow, so you are finishing up where it all started, did you expect to return to the school as principal? No, I never saw myself returning as the principal. I became ambitious a lot later. Did you always want to be a teacher? It was a job I always saw myself doing and had that feel-

ing that’s what I wanted and I’ve never regretted it. What I’ve loved the most in my job as principal is working with teachers and supporting them to be as good as they can be. What we do know is what the teacher does in the class makes the difference. What I’m really proud of is many of the teachers at Cashmere have gone on to do their masters. Gavin, our new principal who we are all very excited about coming, did work at the school about three

Monday September 28 2015

bit of me time Do you live in the Cashmere area? We live over in St Albans. It’s about a 15 minute drive, it’s nothing. I love living over there. And do you and your husband have any children? We’ve got two daughters and a grandson. He is 11. Do you spoil your grandson? Of course that’s the job! My daughter and grandson live in Christchurch and my other daughter lives in Adelaide. We do go over and visit. And did they follow in their parents’ footsteps and become teachers too? No, they didn’t. One has a PhD in chemistry and works as a researcher and the other is a nurse. What do you like to do in your spare time? To be honest, being a principal is a fairly full-on job and takes a huge amount of my time so that’s one of the reasons I’m looking for a shift. But when I’m not working I’ll be reading or going on a walk, I like walking to a cafe so there’s a nice coffee waiting at the end of it! I also like hanging out with family and friends. Is becoming a principal the

ultimate for any teacher? No, I don’t think so. There are people who do an amazing jobs as teachers or team leaders or associate or deputy principals and they don’t aspire to be a principal. I was in the right place at the right time when I first got a principals job in Methven. And I found I really did enjoy the strategy side of the leadership. That was the reason I went on and applied for other jobs. What is the most common reason a pupil is sent to your office? I get them sent when they’ve done amazing. I would be surprised to hear children would be scared of me, and if they were I would be worried because I don’t think children should not be afraid of adults. What would you have been most likely to get a detention for at school? I was a wee bit of a goodietwo-shoes really. I was a good quiet student who hoped I wasn’t being noticed. For most children it was probably for not doing homework, it was so long ago. > New principal appointed p8, Our Project p9.

Media students get experience from 3 News anchorman TURNING THE TABLES: Budding journalists Josh Fraser-Young, Riley Williams and Maddy Knights from Hillmorton High School got to interview the interviewer, when they had a visit from 3 News anchor Mike McRoberts. Mr McRoberts is also a Hillmorton old boy and talked to the students about his experiences as a sports journalist covering the All Blacks and three Olympic games. He also spoke about his role as a reporter in war-torn countries and currently, reading the news. The Hillmorton Network News team conducted an interview with him and he gave them tips on interviewing and how to arrange their equipment to get the best angle. Deputy principal Eleanor Sim said it was an amazing experience for the up-and-coming film and media students.

LEARNING: The New Zealand Book Council came to South Christchurch Library recently with its event Speed Date an Author. Schools were welcome to register up to 10 students in years 7-10 to attend the event. Five from Hillmorton High School, including Brad Cross, Santiago Blanco Nieto and Celyn Edwards attended. They had the chance to learn from Dunedin Comic Collective cofounder Spencer Hall, award-winning young adult fiction writer Ella West, award-winning poet and playwright, Bernadette Hall, and award-winning poet and writer, Jeffrey Paparoa Holman and with writer Kathleen Gallagher.

BON APPETITE: Linwood College’s Café 13 opened its doors for three nights only last week as part of the students’ hospitality curriculum assessment. The year 12 and 13 students hosted and served a three-course meal to family, whānau, staff and community leaders. The menu theme was international, and featured dishes from France, Italy, New Zealand, Thailand, Ireland, Norway, Greece, Iceland, Morocco and the Philippines. They were assessed on table service, customer care, front of house, presentation, chef skills and kitchen etiquette. Response from customers was excellent and the students did the school proud. Café 13 is open on weekdays from 8-8.40am during term time, when students make coffees and hot drinks for customers.

Mr Burn is currently associate principal of Halswell School and has previously been team leader for the Totara team at Cashmere Primary. He will take up the role at the start of next year. Board of trustees chairwoman

Our project

Wizards, heroes descend on Opawa Opawa School pupils and staff dressed up as part of the school’s book character day. The event was run by the student council and everyone dressed as their favourite book character and took part in a character parade. COLOURFUL: Jasmine Smith, Rhiannon Butters, Samantha Chang and Archie Beyer wore some impressive constumes. HEROES: Tyler Cameron, Lukas Hackwell, Madix Arthurs, Sid Kingi and Cesar Moga dress up as their favourite superheroes.

MAGICAL: Principal Grant Stedman and pupil Dyme Gaul both dressed up as Harry Potter as part of the school’s book character day.

Characters spring to life

PERFORMING: St Peter’s School pupils Hannah Pithie, Ben Tulloch, Chole Heslop, Chloe Harker, Noah Dean, Fionn Noble and the frogs perform in the school production held on Monday last week. The production, called The Dream Library, was written by the pupils. It was about characters from books coming alive, and included dance, drama, music and lots of humour with every pupil involved. It was held in the Catholic Cathedral College hall and very well-received by families and friends.


TRIALLING: Henry Allot, Francesca Gallaway and Poppy Blake-Manson test out the z-shaped beam.

Creating fun for others A group of Cashmere Primary School pupils have created an obstacle course to entertain other children these holidays. The year 9 pupils have been working on the course which has been put in The Commons on the corner of Kilmore and Durham Sts. They had been looking at Gap Filler projects across the city and decided to develop one of their own and have been working on it for about four months. The course is made up of a crawling frame, a mini climbing wall, a seesaw, a tyre run, digital timer and a zshaped beam and will be at The Commons over the holidays which start today.

All the equipment has been designed, modelled and tested by the pupils with the help of staff from Riley Consultants and Gap Filler. Technology teacher Daniel Gorman said it had been great seeing the students so motivated by an authentic local need. “You can see the display and race your friends on the course at the Corner of Durham and Kilmore Sts.” PROJECT: Francesca Gallaway and Inigo Holmes paint the seesaw which will be at The Commons. > Let the Southern View know about your school project.

LOCAL Achievers

YOUTH SERVICE AWARD Somerfield resident Charlie Devine was presented with his Youth Service Award at the recent Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board meeting. The presentation was part of the community service awards in the ward which were announced in July. Charlie (right) has been part of a team at St Thomas of Canterbury College which has volunteered its time to produce a Youth in Custody index. The document focuses on a body of research around the voiceless young people in care and protection and juvenile offending custodial units. This has involved engaging in Official Information Act applications to Government agencies, gathering and collating information, as well as producing and launching the index which will be produced annually. FOOTBALL CAMP Cashmere Primary School pupils Caleb Manson, Dominic Tolan and Charlie Barker have made the South Island National Talent Centre for football.

They will go up against St Mary’s

Cashmere and Middleton have played each other six times this season including in the Christchurch schools final with Middleton Grange winning every match.

Summer’s on the way, Get Walking

If the shoe fits

With the warmer temperatures and the general improvement in the weather, now is a great time to dust off those walking shoes.


ncreasingly the health benefits of active commuting and using public transport are being recognised and are well researched. This is a way to combat poor health and prevent a polluted environment. For every 1200 steps or 12 minutes walking (about 1 kilometre) you burn calories, improve your health and happiness, and reduce your disease risk;1300 steps save 72 cents on car costs, and avoid 0.2kgs of carbon emission. People who commute by bus or train and ferry, get on average over three times the exercise of those in a car. And bus and trains are the safest way to get around.

The question is if it’s so great why aren’t more people walking and using public transport? Living Streets president, Andy Smith says “Walking is part of every trip but we want people to walk more. We do see more people walk and use public transport in some places but our cities have been developed for the car. This makes it difficult to get the exercise we need every day – recommended 30 minutes activity most days for adults, and more for children and teenagers. We think it should be easy to walk or use public transport to where you want to go every day – save the car for out of the ordinary trips.

New owner of


Indian restaurant

royal touch with a


he popular Indian Ocean restaurant in Humphreys Drive, Ferrymead, has a new owner. Birendra Chettri (Kapil), who has extensive restaurant experience in some of India’s top hotels, took over in August, and since then he has been upgrading his new business. As well as improving the service in the restaurant, he has introduced better quality seating and glassware, and has expanded the wine list, adding top-quality pinot noir from Central Otago and sauvignon blanc from Marlborough and Canterbury. He has also extended the beer selection and added a range of ciders. He also plans to add teas to the menu, which he says are more soothing to drink after eating curries than coffee. These will be the Dilmah Exceptional tea range and the worldfamous Darjeeling tea from Kapil’s hometown. A wide selection of North Indian dishes, as well as items from other regions such as South India and Goa, are featured on the Indian Ocean menu, all made with top-quality ingredients. They include Prawn Malabari, Goan Fish Curry and the Parsi dish Dhansak, which are well worth trying.

The chef, Kewal, has also had extensive experience, including working at five-star hotels in India and central London, so not only does he bring his well-honed skills to the Indian Ocean kitchen, but also some of his own unique dishes, such as Butter Scallops. The dishes are generally served medium, but Kewal can make them mild, hot or extra hot, depending on people’s preference, and he has found that dishes on the hotter side are always in demand. Not only are the flavours of the food at Indian Ocean authentic, but the décor too creates a

truly Indian ambience. The stunning carvings, rich wall hangings and traditional puppets come directly from Jaisalmer, which is known as the Golden City because of its colour, in the heart of the royal state of Rajasthan. There are also tables outside for those who enjoy eating al fresco while taking in the peaceful views of the estuary. Indian Ocean is open for dinner seven days a week, from

4.30pm till late, and for lunch 11.30am till 2pm. Bookings are recommended, especially for weekend dining. And if you want to check out the menu before you go, have a look at their website Takeaways are also available. Indian Ocean is located in the Estuary complex, 23 Humphreys Drive, phone 384 7000.
