All-round education: Boys at Waihi School are
presented with opportunities and challenges
that seek to inspire and motivate them.
Allan Short, headmaster of Waihi
School in South Canterbury,
believes that the formative years
of a boy's education are
''The experiences, values and
challenges presented to him at
this stage are fundamental in
helping to shape and determine
his views, attitudes, dispositions
and ultimate success for his
future years,'' Short says.
He says that Waihi School
understands how boys think
''They are presented with
opportunities and challenges
that seek to inspire and motivate
them. We believe in allowing
boys to be boys and our unique
rural environment gives them
many opportunities to play and
Waihi also has high
expectations of its students in
terms of academic achievement.
''Small class sizes, together
with high quality, committed
staff -- many of whom are
residential -- ensure that the
school knows each boy extremely
well and they receive close
attention and care.
''While achievement in the
classroom is crucial, the
education the boys
receive is broad and
balanced, and we seek
to find exactly what
presses the buttons of
every boy, allowing
them to discover their
talents and fulfil their
potential,'' Short says.
Boarding is at the
heart of Waihi life.
Short believes board-
ing helps boys develop
''It increases their
confidence, and above
all, they also learn the
value and importance of
being members of a

wonderful school setting, listen
to the boys tell you for
themselves about their lives
here, and discover just how
Waihi is really making a
difference for yet another
generation of young boys.''

Ilove making individual picnic
tarts, quiches and cakes using
muffin tins, single-serve tart
cases, or little cake tins. Just make
sure you give them a thorough
greasing with an oil spray or brush
them generously with butter to
ensure ease of removal.
Roast pumpkin tart with
creamy blue cheese and
In these tarts, the big flavours of
roasted pumpkin, caramelised
onions and sage are complimented
by the creamy blue cheese.
They mean a little more prep-
aration, but lend a whole load
2 large red onions, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 crown pumpkin or butternut
squash, peeled, seeds removed,
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
12 sheets filo pastry
75g butter, melted
4 eggs, lightly beaten
100g creamy blue cheese,
Few sprigs sage, sliced
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Gently cook the onions in the first
quantity of olive oil until reduced
Toss the pumpkin in the second
quantity of olive oil, and season
well with salt and pepper. Roast in
the preheated oven for 30 minutes,
Brush a sheet of filo pastry with
the butter, and place another piece
of filo on top.
Brush with more butter and fold
in half. Place the filo into a hole in
a jumbo muffin tray and scrunch in
Repeat with the remaining filo
pastry, until each muffin space
is filled. Divide the pumpkin and
caramelised onion evenly between
the pastry cases.
Beat the eggs and milk together,
and pour the mix over the pumpkin
and onions. Sprinkle with crumbled
creamy blue cheese and sage.
Bake in the preheated oven until
golden brown and just set in the
centre -- about 25 minutes.
