What is a very popular saying in Christchurch?

I’m heading to Christchurch, New Zealand next week for a Job Interview and because I would like to be more likeable I would like to mention something nice in between the interview

For example: Some popular saying, sentence, quote, something that a war hero said in the past (if any), celebrity, etc. Something that is very particular of Christchurch that any citizen of there would recognize straight away

Please Help!

Wow, thats a really tricky one!

Nothing really comes to mind to be honest!!

I guess the only thing I could help you on is place nicknames us Christchurch-ers have! Well, Avonhead – is nicknamed ‘asianhead’ (pretty mean but thats where a lot of Asians live!) ‘Rolly’ – Rollerston, which is just outta town ‘Hack’ – near the bus exchange in city centre where all the emos and goths hang!

The strip’ – A big strip of restaurants and bars next to the Avon river on Oxford Terrace okay, soz that probly didn’t really help at all!

But I don’t think there is any sayings or quotes that are particular to Chch. But good luck with your interview =]

Chch is the most beautiful city so I hope you get the job!

  1. There is a saying that Cantabrians are all one eyed…..in that they support Canterbury 100%…..in that they are very proud of cantabrians, especially in sport eg Robbie Deans, Crusaders and Canterbury ( all rugby)…….The fact that Canterbury just won the Air NZ cup is something they will be proud of!!!

  2. Saying “Isn’t it great that Robbie has moved on from the Crusaders? They really need new blood coaching them.” should get you killed.

    Seeing as Canterbury just won the AirNZ cup, anything in favour of either of their rugby teams will go down a treat.
