Re the Government's plans for
Christchurch schools. Some of us
have purposefully chosen small
schools because that's what suits
our children's learning and
Specifically, intermediate or
combined school choice should be
that for the parent and child.
Don't even think of putting our
kids into buildings that are not
single level to encompass the
merging of more than one school
population onto a smaller land
School community parents are
going to face children having huge
difficulties with more bullying,
increased social interaction
problems and increased anxiety
levels, not only between special
needs children but also children
who don't deal well in larger
Merging two or more school
cultures and philosophies will
increase bullying, youth suicides
and peer pressure into bad
I'm not suggesting that every
school will encounter these issues,
but on top of all Christchurch has
been through it is a very real
reality, long and short term.
Another way of increasing asset
Just think of the empty
buildings and land left behind.
There will be long-term economic
costs, job losses, increased need
for social services, and adult and
family social issues. Jill Reesby
We were very sad to read of the
closure of one -- if not the best --
little restaurant in Christchurch
(Satchmo's, Mail September 20).
Lyttelton has lost something
great. It was the place to go for
great food, a lovely atmosphere,
superb music and wonderful
hosting. Shane and Cassandra did
It was the place we would
always take overseas and out-of-
town visitors for a great dining
To us, Shane was a top chef and
Cassandra a wonderful front of
house.Rob and Kathleen Hungerford
I was recently watching a
television programme about
workers' rights when off sick.
One fella got the sack because
he went to watch a waka race and
his boss saw it in the paper. What
I would like to know is, who
polices the employer? He gets sick
too. It's a bit of a one-sided game.
