NZの地震から1ヶ月が過ぎ、学校も再開しました。また、その後の日本の大震災に対する募金活動もNZでは積極的に行われています。

現地からのレポートです。
2月22日の地震から1か月が過ぎました。まだまだ、街のいたるところに倒壊したビルの瓦礫が無残にも積み上げられていたり、道路の陥没等間まだまだ生々しい傷跡を目にしますが、復興に向けて街は動き出しています。
 ミドルトンの生徒たちは、地震後学校が始まり2週間、ようやく元の学校生活に落ち着きが取り戻せてきた感じです。一人ひとりクライストチャーチの地震の影響、また日本の東北関東大震災に心を痛めている中、自分自身に出来ることは、今自分がいるところで精一杯頑張ることということを、しっかり自覚して頑張っています。季節も夏から秋へと変わり、朝晩冷え込むようになって来ました。今学期は、4月15日で終わり2週間の秋休みがあり、2月期は、5月2日からのスタートです。今学期末には、一人ひとりアンケートと個人面談を行って、1学期の成果とまとめを行いたいと考えています。
 4月24日には、学校全体で'Japan Support day'があり、生徒が日本の国旗の色(赤と白)を意識した私服を学校に着て行き、寄付を募り、昼休みに日本の学校に送る励ましのカードを書いたり、日本のために祈ったりして、日本をサポートする催しがありました。この日一日で$3000が集まったそうです。そのお金が少しでも日本の復興のお役に立てればと言うことでした。。

東日本大震災  分類なし

今朝、テレビで流れてきた東日本大震災関連のひとコマで、どうしても書きたいことがありましたので、ニュージーランド留学とは関係ないことですが、書かせていただきます。
*この度の東日本大震災で犠牲になられた方、被災された方にお悔やみならびにお見舞い申し上げます。

ー「子どもの純粋さ・繊細さ」
今朝、テレビを見ていたら、学校と思われる場所で掃除をしている小学生と中学生がいました。
テレビ局関係の人が「今一番欲しいものは?」と聞かれ、中学生らしい女の子が「お水かな」と。後ろにいた同じく中学生らしい女の子が「お家」と。その時、すぐそばを通った小学生らしい子どもが「命があるだけでいいじゃん」と。思わず涙してしまいました。子ども達の純粋な、繊細な心を本当に大切にしたいと思いました。

National Christchurch Memorial Service  ニュージーランド教育サポートセンターについて

今日、昨日のブログにも書きましたように、「国の地震犠牲者追悼式National Christchurch Memorial Service」に参加してきてました。
式典の中での、ウイリアム王子、首相、市長、司教・・・各宗教関係者・・・とにかく全員が今回の日本の地震にも触れ、お悔やみの言葉を述べておられました。
ほぼ皆さんが、「苦難が訪れたことは事実だが、我々の再生のための一歩と言う考え方にならないといけない」とおっしゃっていました。

地震後の皆の笑顔を届けたいと思います。
何人かは来ませんでしたが、お昼休みにいた皆の写真をご覧ください。
とても元気です。日本で色々なことが起きて、心が痛みますが、彼らの笑顔に癒されます。
こちらは、まだ少し余震がありますが、体感される余震の数はずっと減りました。
街の中心部を除いて、ほぼ道路も通れるようになりましたが、まだ多少道路に凹凸が見られ、スピードが出せなかったり、迂回しないといけなかったりで、朝晩のラッシュ時には、以前よりも車が混んでいるのは事実です。ただ、KIWI(ニュージーランド人)の顔は明らかに明るくなってきています。
その中で、今回の日本の出来ごとに対し、人ごとではないと心を痛めてくれ、多くの方が、涙を流しながら日本に対してのお見舞いの言葉をかけてくれています。
お互いに助け合いながら、この難局を乗り越えていきたいと思います。

本日届いた大学からの情報です。

Ready for progressive re-start

I am pleased to report to the University community that arrangements are well advanced for our progressive re-start from Monday 14 March. This has been an outstanding effort by a wide range of staff, students and contractors, many of whom are continuing to manage challenging personal and family circumstances. Thank you for your commitment over the last three weeks.

We are under no illusion that the progressive re-start will bring its own tests, as we launch more than 250 courses and programmes using a variety of interim teaching spaces. Please bear with us as we sort out some inevitable immediate glitches. We will all need to demonstrate a level of flexibility and commonsense and remember the wider context within which we are operating.

Start of teaching programmes

Today we have been making refinements to the draft timetable for the progressive re-start of our academic programme which was released last evening. The current timetable is available at www.canterbury.ac.nz. We have also been collating information for our online re-start guide for staff and students which will also be available at www.canterbury.ac.nz later this evening.

Building Update
Today the second stage of our five-step building inspections was completed. As a result I can provide the following update:

Clyde Precinct: The Central Lecture Theatres may be available before the end of March; the A1-A3 lecture theatres early April; and the A4-A9 lecture theatres mid-April. The reason for the delay is that all heavy plaster tile ceilings are being replaced. At this stage, there are no availability dates for the following buildings: Law, Geography, Psychology, Modern Languages, English/History. However, we are systematically working through the building assessment process for these buildings with the aim of progressing the required checks as promptly as possible.

Dovedale: The College Office has received its Warrant of Fitness; L1 and L2 in Otakaro were being assessed today with a view to them being potentially made available early next week. The release dates for all Dovedale buildings except the Jack Mann Auditorium, Wheki and the Tower, is scheduled for 19 March.

Engineering Precinct: Current planning would have the majority of buildings in this precinct available towards the end of March or early April. As of today no dates were available for the Mushroom and College Office; EPS Library and associated computer space; Mechanical and Civil Engineering and connected buildings.

Science/Commerce: Current planning would have the majority of the buildings in the precinct available at various times during April, with the exceptions (as of today) of Erskine, Commerce and Student Services/International.

College Offices: College Managers are allocating spaces for hot desks within the space allocations already communicated.

James Hight building: The availability date has not yet been advised.

UCSA Building: Based on information available to date, we have restricted access to the UCSA building to a limited number of staff for catering purposes only. Further detailed building reports will be assessed once they are received.

First semester exchanges

Applications for first semester exchanges at AUT, Massey University, Otago University, University of Auckland, Waikato University and Victoria University of Wellington closed today. We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from New Zealand universities and the University of Adelaide. At this stage we have approximately 550-600 students, including 170 at the University of Adelaide and 108 Study Abroad international students, undertaking various exchanges and less than 200 students have withdrawn from UC at this point.



Clarifications

I would like to provide two clarifications on items of interest to students: refunds and dates for withdrawal.

Dates for withdrawal

We have given further consideration to fair and reasonable approaches to withdrawals and refunds. The last date for withdrawal from semester one courses is Thursday 21 April.

Refunds

We have already advised that the University will waive six months of this year’s fee for those staff and students who purchased a full-year parking permit before 22 February. People who purchased a permit for Semester One only will receive a full refund.

We will also provide a full refund of membership fees paid to join the recreation centre. In recognition of the circumstances, we find ourselves in, a refund of $500 will be provided to every full time equivalent student and pro-rated for part time students. This is in recognition of the physical damage to infrastructure which has led to a reduction in the quality of these services.

Refunds can only be made to the entity paying your fees. For example if your fees are paid by Student Loan the refund will go to Studylink, if paid by Scholarship to the sponsoring entity, and if paid by you the student by crediting a New Zealand bank account. Due to the demands on our financial service function, refunds may not be available before 1 May. Further information will be available on the website, once confirmed.

Community Education

Due to a lack of suitable facilities we regret that all Term One and Term Two Community Education courses have been cancelled. Within the next few weeks our Community Education staff will make contact with anyone currently enrolled in a Community Education course to arrange a refund of fees.

Getting ready for Monday

To access information about preparing for the start of teaching on Monday, please review the online re-start guide which will be available at www.canterbury.ac.nz later this evening.

It is critical that, before coming to campus on Monday, staff and students familiarise themselves with where they need to be and when. Please refer to the published timetable for the week beginning 14 March 2011. A list of approved off-site centres for teaching will be published on the website.

While most lectures and tutorials will be held on the Ilam or Dovedale sites, some will be held off-site using locations that have all been checked by engineers to ensure that they are fit for purpose.

Student Services and support

We expect that students will have questions about a range of important topics. A Student Services storefront will be operating next to Big Top in the car park adjacent to the UCSA building off Ilam Rd from 8am until 8pm beginning on Monday, 14 March. It can be approached on foot only from University Drive. It will provide access to all student services including academic advice, financial services, Studylink, Student Support. The University Bookshop will also be open from Monday.

Car parking

We appreciate the impact of restricted parking for staff, students and the local community. We are exploring ways we can improve parking options and will make an announcement within the next fortnight. In the meantime, wherever possible, please walk, take a bus, ride a bicycle or share a car with others.

More information

In The Press tomorrow the University will be running a full-page of information for staff and students returning to campus next week. The information in The Press tomorrow will include timetabling for next week. But, as I have said previously, you are advised to monitor www.canterbury.ac.nz daily for any changes.

Staff returning to campus this weekend to prepare for teaching
Tomorrow, (Saturday 12 March) staff requiring access on site to prepare for the commencement of teaching on Monday will be able to get access to limited areas of campus. These are the Clyde Precinct and Dovedale College of Education College Office, which will be available between 10am-2pm. Staff will have to park on the street and walk through the Arts and Law car park as there is no parking in this area. You will be required to approach buildings from safe entry areas at the campus perimeter to sign in and out of the building that you are accessing. You will need to bring I.D. This limited access applies only to staff. There will be no access for students. There will be no access to campus for staff or students on Sunday, 13 March.

Progressive Re-start Support

From Monday onwards academic staff and students will be supported by a group of general staff who will be focussing on assisting with administrative and coordination tasks. This will include:

· helping staff and students to the appropriate learning spaces;

· ensuring that staff have supplies (e.g. whiteboard, pens, lecture handouts etc);

· assisting staff and students to find other facilities and the help they might need;

· assisting with security around campus in the interests of staff and student health and safety.

This group will be called the Progressive Re-start Support Team (PRST). Lanyards will identify staff who are performing these duties. Rosters for PRST staff are currently being worked on.

A central coordination point will be established for the PRST and will be in the Clyde Precinct.

General Staff - Progressive Re-start Support Team (PRST-Team)

If your Human Resources Advisor has been in contact with you recently to ask if you can perform duties relating to the re-start, you are likely to be invited to join the PRST. We are currently compiling these names and will be in touch via email soon regarding hours, likely duties and what to bring. We will also contact the staff rostered on for Monday by phone.

Start times will allow enough time for briefings about your role and you will advised on the venue for that briefing.

Finally, as Vice-Chancellor, I have had much to be proud of during the last three weeks. The work of the Student Volunteer Army and the other service-based work and compassionate acts by UC students and staff have been inspirational. The enormous dedication and commitment of hundreds of staff and numerous contractors who have worked so hard to make our progressive re-start a reality have made me tremendously proud to be a part of the community that is the University of Canterbury.

When I welcomed our students to the University last month I said that they would all face challenges during their time at UC. I could not have imagined at that time the nature of the challenges that are now before us all. But, already, our students and staff have risen to those challenges. Already you have all distinguished yourselves as a remarkable group of people who are making a real difference to our University, our city and our country.

カンタベリー大学から情報が入りましたのでお伝えします。

Announcement of teaching timetable for progressive re-start
We are pleased to announce the draft timetable for the progressive restart of our academic programme for 2011. From Monday 14 March approximately 250 courses will be being delivered either on campus, off campus, online, on field trips or through our distance learning programmes. Details of this draft timetable can be found on the website. The timetable for the week beginning 14 March will be finalised by 12 noon Friday 11 March. We have tried to minimise timetable clashes but, if you do have a clash, talk to the lecturer in one of the courses concerned and ask their advice.

This is the best available information at this time, but due to ongoing developments in the restart programme there may be some adjustments. Please continue to check the website for any changes before Monday and throughout the weeks ahead. Students whose course or courses do not appear on the final timetable are not required to be on campus. For those of you still waiting on information about your course please keep checking our website after 8pm each day as we continue to schedule more courses.

Due to the memorial day on Friday 18 March, the University will be closed and we will offer a full days teaching on Saturday 19 March.

Building Update
Our re-start team has been working hard to ensure buildings are ready for use for Monday’s progressive re-start activities.

The second stage of building inspections is expected to be completed by tomorrow for all 186 separate structural spaces. We are currently working on a ‘warrant of fitness’ for 40 separate structural spaces. In addition, we have begun erecting a range of sizes of marquees as interim teaching spaces for some courses.

Restart kit online
Tomorrow morning online re-start packages will be available. There will be one for staff and one for students. They will include practical information about what you will need for Monday including travel options, health and safety information, access to library services, car parking and building access information. We will also include highlights of this information in The Press on Saturday. Information about access to textbooks and the annual UCSA book sale will be made available before the weekend.

Refunds
We have already advised that the University will waive six months of this year’s fee for those staff and students who purchased a full-year parking permit before 22 February. People who purchased a permit for Semester One only will receive a full refund.

We will also provide a full refund of membership fees paid to join the recreation centre. In recognition of the circumstances, we find ourselves in, a refund of $500 will be provided to every full time equivalent student and pro-rated for part time students. This is in recognition of the physical damage to infrastructure which has led to a reduction in the quality of these services. Refunds can only be made by crediting a bank account. Due to the demands on our financial service function, refunds may not be available before 1 May. Further information will be available on the website, once confirmed.

Staff returning to campus on Monday 14 March
Staff requiring access on site to prepare for the commencement of teaching on Monday will be able to get onto restricted areas of campus. These are the Clyde Precinct and Dovedale College of Education College Office which will be available between 10am-2pm on Saturday 12 March. Staff will have to park on the street and walk through the Arts and Law car park as there is no parking in this area. You will be required to approach buildings from safe entry areas at the campus perimeter to sign in and out of the building that you are accessing. You will need to bring I.D. This limited access applies only to staff, there will be no access for students. There will be no access to campus for staff or students on Sunday 13 March.

If you require handouts to be copied, a Copy Centre is operating in NZi3. This is only available for printing services for teaching and learning starting this week.

If any staff member requires urgent assistance with course design or using Learn please call 367 0719. Staff can request a new Learn course, if one does not already exist. We are also making audio visual recordings on request for online viewing. To request a video complete this request form. There will be a curfew from 9pm until 7am seven days a week until further notice. Between 7am and 9pm only buildings in designated precincts can be accessed. The “Clear” sign on a building means that it was clear of people on 22 February. It does not mean the building is approved for access. Buildings which have been certified through all five stages will carry a warrant of fitness designation.

Staff working from home
Guidelines for staff that are not required on campus and can work from home will be released tomorrow. Staff working from home who have access to a computer with an Internet connection have the ability to use some of the University’s IT facilities from off-campus. This provides access to P: Drives (My Documents) and K: drives (departmental drives), email, Microsoft Office applications and Jade/SMS. Please note that during this phase of the progressive re-start this service gives you access to a server that contains a specific set of software but does not give you direct access to your office computer. This means that specialist software installed on your office computer will not be accessible. Review the following web page for more information, including instructions on how to request access to this service: http://rax.canterbury.ac.nz.

When we start on Monday 14 March it will be less than three weeks since the events of February 22. Our staff have been through a challenging time preparing for our progressive re-start while managing their own personal issues in the aftermath of the earthquake. I would like to thank the re-start team for their hard work and thank all other staff and students for your patience while you waited for us to begin the redesign of our academic year. This is far from the final design of our programmes. We will have to make adjustments as we progress to best meet the needs of our students and staff and, most importantly, to ensure we are all as safe as possible.

Keep safe.
Rod Carr
Vice Chancellor
