Camera trial deters

sex worker clients

NEW TECHNOLOGY: The temporary

camera which has been installed to deter

undesirable behaviour in St Albans.

INSIDE: •

ANDREW KING

A security camera has been

installed in St Albans to deter

clients visiting sex workers.

The city council initiative

comes after years of residents

complaining about prostitutes

working in the area.

The city council installed the

temporary camera on the corner

of Manchester and Purchas

Sts last week to deter clients

seeking prostitute services. It is

hoped that the prostitutes will

head back into the city centre.

The camera has been loaned

to the city council from security

camera company ATF for a

two-week free trial. Normally

they are $40 per day to rent.

At the end of the trial the city

council will liaise with police

and the residents to see if it

will keep the camera operational.

It has some of the most sophisticated

technology in the

world with facial recognition,

number plate reading capabilities

and advanced night vision.

St Albans resident Matt Bonis

has been living in the area

KEEPING AN EYE: The camera has some of the best night vision currently available in the world.

since 2009 and said 48 hours

after the camera was installed,

he slept with his windows open

for the first time in years.

“There have been a lot less

clients around since it went

up so the girls are just moving

on . . . it is great not having a

price list screamed across the

street,” he said.

In the past he said they had

found needles, neighbours had

items stolen and sometimes

they would find people having

sex in their properties.

“I have been threatened by

pimps, prostitutes and their clients

. . . we just want our kids

to sleep in a safe, quiet neighbourhood,”

Mr Bonis said.

City councillor Ali Jones

(above) said the issue is not

with prostitution itself, it is the

noise, damage and rubbish that

is left behind in a residential

area.

“If we can get them to move

back into the city centre it will

make both parties happier,”

she said.

Cr Jones said she had been

working closely with the New

Zealand Prostitutes Collective

to relocate the girls.

Acting Sergeant Nic Adcock

said while the camera is mainly

a city council initiative, police

will be looking carefully at

any footage they are provided

and act if any criminal activity

takes place.

Theatre for St Albans?

ANDREW KING

The St Albans Community

Centre will not have a pool

included in its design but could

get a theatre.

The new community centre,

earmarked for Colombo St in

2017, is in the design process

which will be put out for public

consultation on May 27.

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board chairman Mike Davidson

is on the working party and said

there will be no pool at the new

centre.

“The Edgeware pool group

will take up that slack. It would

have been great to have them

co-existing on the same site, but

we don’t have the room to do

both,” he said.

St Albans Pavilion and

Pool Incorporated were sold

the Edgeware Pool site, at

43 Edgeware Rd, for $1 in

February.

It plans to build a 25m

outdoor pool and a smaller

covered learners pool.

The site is less than 250m

from the St Albans centre and

will cater for the community’s

aquatic needs.

Mr Davidson said even if

fellow board member Pauline

Cotter’s request for the city

council to buy land at 130

Caledonian Rd went ahead there

still wouldn’t be enough room.

“We need to consider parking

and the other amenities the

community wants. Also the

zoning would be very hard

to get around to put a pool in

there,” he said.

While the pool is off the

table there has been talk about

a theatre being included in the

design.

“A movie theatre, like the

one that used to be on the new

SuperValue site in Edgeware,

has been discussed,” Mr

Emma Twaddell Mike Davidson

Davidson said.

St Albans Residents

Association co-chairwoman

Emma Twaddell said the idea of

a theatre is exciting.

“It would be more of an

art house theatre, like the

Alice in Videoland one in

town. I am all for spaces that

can be used for several different

things so if it could be used for

productions as well that would

be great,” she said.

She said while the new

centre is built they will have to

relocate off-site.

“We are having a meeting on

Wednesday with the city council

to decide were to go while the

new centre is built,” she said.

Raewyn Saunders

Sense of community goal for

Fendalton Open-air School’s new principal

Raewyn Saunders has a passion for good,

strong community roots and believes it is the

secret to creating a thriving school culture. She

speaks to Andrew King

Hi Raewyn. Tell us how

you view the school you’re

stepping into?

Well I think it is a well

functioning school. It is facing

the same challenges that many

other schools in the city face. I

am really excited and looking

forward to getting into the job

and tackling some of those challenges

head on.

What are your goals for the

school?

I would love it to have the

real sense of community. I am

not saying that it doesn’t have

that now, just I will be looking

to continue that when I come

in. I want it to be a welcoming

and friendly environment that

makes it easy for kids to come in

and learn. The school is exploding

with diversity and we need

to cater to that. I think it is a

school with a wonderful history,

and valuing its past will help us

influence the future.

You must have taught in

a few different places over

your career?

I have moved around a bit. I

have taught in a real variety of

different schools from rural,

large city and private schools. I

have taught in Fairlie, Geraldine

and Palmerston North, I have

even done a small stint in Jakarta.

Wow, tell me about Jakarta?

We went over as a family. I

applied for a teaching job at

the Jakarta British International

School, which taught under

the British curriculum. I had

a class of 24 students and

within that 24 there were 14

different nationalities. It was an

incredible experience working

with so many different and

unique students. Having a

diverse career like this has really

influenced who I am as a person

and I think made me more well

rounded.

What did you teach before

becoming a principal?

Well being in primary school

you teach a bit of everything.

One of my main passions is

special education. That has

given me another side as a

teacher. It has been wonderful

learning more about how people

with disabilities learn and it has

enriched the way I can support

incoming students with learning

disabilities into the school.

Was it your aspiration to be

a principal?

I didn’t initially aspire to be

a principal but I have aspired to

be involved with schools that

build a positive and inclusive

environment for its students.

I like being around kids that

are eager to learn and part of

that is about school culture.

You sometimes hear adults say

“I hated school” and that is

something I want to try to avoid

with kids coming through school

now.

NOR’WEST NEWS Tuesday May 10 2016 5

new principal

I feel that school should be the

foundation that starts you wanting

to be a learner for life.

How do you build that

school culture, I would imagine

working with the parents is

crucial?

Relationships with

families, students and the

wider community network is

paramount. We are a people

industry and how we develop

things with parents is key to

getting kids to want to learn.

With their help we can influence

young people to question and

inquire about the world around

them.

When did you decide you

wanted to be in education?

If you ask my mother she will

tell you I used to play schools

when I was a little girl so I think

I have always wanted to teach. I

didn’t get into it because I didn’t

know what I wanted to do, I

knew I wanted to be a teacher.

The beauty about teaching in

different environments means

there has always been a different

challenge to take on or different

direction I can take where no

two days are the same. I love my

job and I like making a difference

in kids’ lives which is the

most rewarding aspect of it.

Where did you go to school?

FIRST DAY: Getting to know the school and pupils.

I went to Riccarton High

School.

What does a teacher do to

unwind?

I am a runner. I am into

cycling and I think it is

important to have some degree

of physical fitness. My family

and friends play a big part of

who I am. Wherever I have been

in my life I have made friends

and retained most of them.

What is your favourite subject

to teach?

Well in primary schools we

call it literacy – reading and the

written language. I have probably

included a bit of that in

everything I have taught over the

years which makes sense, you

teach to your strengths. When I

was

at school I loved learning about

geography and social sciences.

I have been really passionate

supporting the dyslexic learners

and how they can be reached

through different teaching

methods. It is all about playing

to your strengths, once you find

what a kid is good at use it to

encourage further learning.

Main North Rd

traffic volume

expected to ease

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Motorists driving into the

city along Main North Rd

are likely to have an easier

run with roadworks nearly

completed.

The city council’s Transport

Unit Quarterly Report

for March showed

there had been 1500

more vehicles travelling

along Main North

Rd daily.

Christchurch

Transport Operations

Centre manager

Ryan Cooney said the

roadworks on Prestons

Rd were the likely cause of

the increase in vehicles using

Main North Rd.

“That was changing the

roads that people were using

in the area.”

He said commuters coming

into the city from Kaiapoi

were likely using Main North

Rd instead of Marshland

and Prestons Rds while the

repairs were taking place.

Ryan Cooney

With the roadworks nearly

completed, he expected

traffic volumes to return to

normal.

A city council

spokeswoman said Orion had

been laying electrical cables

along Prestons Rd, from

Main North Rd, to Landfill

Ave, since October.

Both are expected to

be finished at the end

of this month, she said.

Works were also

being carried out,

between Marshland

Rd and Landfill Ave,

to upgrade services

and road for Prestons

Subdivision.

They are expected to be

completed in the third quarter

of this year, between July and

September, she said.

Mr Cooney said the extra

1500 vehicles travelling

along Main North Rd daily

would have been noticeable

to motorists, however, the

route is busy at peak times

anyway.

SOLID AUCTION RESULTS

Auctions continue to be the preferred way to sell and our gold

auction rooms have been standing room only this past week.

One of my auctions had over 60 potential purchasers through

their three week campaign with around 20 bidders there on the

day to achieve a price that exceeded our owners’ expectations.

Any agent can do an auction, but not every agent can create a

successful auction platform to reach a market premium through

open and transparent competition in the rooms – this is the key

to a great auction result.

We still have several qualified buyers looking for properties,

so give me a call if you are thinking of selling as we might

already have the perfect buyer on our books!

M Factor Events owner Maree

Tuesday.

CAR UPSIDE DOWN

A man was taken to

Christchurch Hospital on

Wednesday with moderate

injuries after he flipped his

car onto its roof on Harewood

Rd. The car flipped after he

hit a traffic island and blocked

northbound traffic for about

30min. The crash was at the

intersection of Harewood and

Waimakariri Rds in Harewood.

REPAIR WORK STARTING

Delays are expected along

Edward Ave and Allard St

for the next two weeks while

SCIRT repairs sections of

be maintained, by way of a giveway

system.

BREAST CANCER CAMPAIGN

Customers visiting their local

Robert Harris café throughout

May can order off the menu

and 10 per cent of their meal

purchase will be donated to the

New Zealand Breast Cancer

Foundation’s Pink Ribbon

Appeal. The

company is aiming to raise

$100,000 by the end of the

campaign.

PANTHERS, WARRIORS VISIT

Christchurch Girls’ High

School will get a new arts

faculty building as part of a

$27 million development.

Construction is set to begin

with the arts faculty expecting

to be competed by April-May

next year.

The new facility will

include a 275 seated theatre,

drama studios, a music room,

individual and small ensemble

practice rooms, arts, design

and photography studios and a

school administration.

As well as

the new arts

building the

school will see

a significant

redevelopment

of the main

four-storey block, gymnasium

and other classroom blocks.

Principal Pauline Duthie

(above) said the centre will

provide staff and students

with state-of-the-art facilities

they deserve to explore and

develop their skills.

“The arts are a significant

part of school life. Lack of access

to suitable on-site venues

have limited students’ ability

PLANS: The design for Christchurch Girls’ High School art faculty building.

to offer public performance,”

she said.

The school has been without

a purpose-built facility for the

arts after the September 2010

earthquake destroyed the its old

auditorium and music rooms.

The new arts building will

be built on the old auditorium’s

site at the corner of

Matai St East and Deans Ave.

Ms Duthie said the new

building will help provide a

boost for the arts in the community

with a more intimate

venue for the community than

what may be available.

“We are very much looking

forward to producing a show

and holding recitals in the new

theatre,” she said.

Last week the Riccarton-

Wigram Community Board

was updated by the Ministry

of Education on the school’s

rebuild progress.

A solid choice for smart buyers

2/57 Withells Rd, Avonhead

Auction: May 19, 2016

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 1 dining room | 1 living room | 2 car-garage | Listing #: PI42934

Invest your hard-earned money with

confidence: this townhouse ticks all the

boxes for great real estate. Start with the

security of permanent materials – clad in

timeless brick with aluminium joinery, this is a

home that will retain its classic good looks with

the minimum of maintenance.

Add in good proportions that will suit many

– three light, bright bedrooms (master with en

suite bathroom) and a separate lounge adjacent

to the open-plan kitchen and dining area will

appeal to families, couples or investors. An

aspect that ensures the home soaks up sunlight

throughout the day and an easy flow from

indoor living spaces to the sunny and secure

garden will keep entertainers, children and pets

equally happy. The convenience of a double

internal-access garage plus additional off-street

parking adds further practical appeal.

A very sought-after location underpins the

value of this investment: handy to schools and

shops, family-friendly and standing on solid

TC1 land. Presented in immaculate condition,

this is a home you can move straight into or

rent out from day one, but astute buyers will

realise there is plenty of potential here for those

wanting to enhance the property and further

capitalise on their investment.

The vendors have already purchased their

next property so 2/57 Withells Road is very

definitely for sale on or before auction day.

to 2.30pm.

The article headed Funerals

impression of the good work

that is being done by the New

No funerals have in fact been

cancelled at the church since

work began.

This week

Redwood

a poem about

It’s time to say goodbye to our

The hub of our community, we

have loved a lot.

A place to drop off your plastic

bags or chat about your bum

The shop where friendships

have grown.

The contracting team has

done its best to communicate

with church members and has

stopped all noisy work when a

funeral is in progress or for the

burial of ashes.

Crews have also helped

stabilise some gravestones

which had tipped over after the

earthquakes so that construction

Said the Vicar of St James

church community we have

been really thankful for the

partnership with the contractors.

At our recent Anzac Day

service they made extra effort to

complete roadworks in time for

the Dawn Service.”

MARK THOMAS – FIRE

RISK MANAGEMENT

OFFICER

Only about 30 per cent of the

calls we attend now actually

involve fires. The other 70 per

cent includes false alarms, car

crashes, hazardous substance

incidents and medical

emergencies where we provide

manpower with first aid skill

to back up the experts from St

John.

Some of our work does not

neatly fit into any of the normal

categories. An elderly caller last

Thursday had knocked a cushion

that had fallen down the side

of her hot water cylinder. She

wondered if it was a fire risk. It

probably wasn’t. But St Albans

Red Watch crew went to her

house and retrieved the cushion

which almost certainly saved her

days and nights of worry.

We also saw the Wainoni crew

travelling to Collingwood St in

New Brighton the same day to a

child who had managed to trap

their leg in a gate. All the efforts

of the locals were to no avail. A

tool known as a hooligan bar,

a kind of short crowbar, was

utilised by the crew to bend the

railings enough to release the

trapped leg.

There were a couple of

potentially serious fires in the

week. Both were of a suspicious

nature. A camper van at the back

of a vehicle dealer in St Asaph

St was set alight and destroyed

recently and on Wednesday

night, fireworks were apparently

utilised to ignite a fire on the

Port Hills that was visible across

the city.

I’m sure police would

appreciate any information

that might identify either set of

culprits.

LOCAL

Schools

SCHOOL PRIDE: Three Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students have

taking inspiration from New Zealand artist Flox and decided they

will brighten up the school with paintings of native birds, ferns and

flowers. Eve Weston, Imogen Park and Georgia Moynihan spent

Friday painting dull objects around the school to give them some life.

“I live and paint in a beautiful

rural Bay on Banks Peninsula,

surrounded by the ruggedness of

the landscape and the constant

and ever changing rhythm of the

sea.

Change is constant, something you

can either embrace or ignore. Either

way, change challenges us all.

This exhibition is entitled ‘Tipping

Point’, inspired by that point of

change that drives us all, to try

new things and to let others go, to

change the way we think and act.

My paintings express this

excitement, the doubt and

apprehension that change forces

on us all, urging me to try new

things and to let others go.

In ‘Mad as a March Hare’, we have

a lady suspended, her thoughts in

the cloud, searching to find where

her next step in life in will take her,

while below normality exists.

For the Hare, March means

madness, no fear, a month of

change and a new era begins and

the excitement of the unknown.

Hitting the right note

Wairakei School’s Indiana Williamson has

been selected in the Christchurch Boys’

Choir. Principal Shane Buckner said he was

thrilled that Indiana had been selected for

the “prestigious choir”. “We are told that

the judge said you have a very beautiful

voice. Those of us who have heard you

sing, can certainly vouch for that,” he

said. The Christchurch Boys’ Choir

was established in 1985 by Clifton

Cook. The choir sings a range of

pieces from traditional songs,

spirituals, sacred song, opera, jazz

and movie soundtracks.

Like the Hare, when I am in ‘My

Zone’ as an artist in my studio in

Port Levy, my imagination takes me

to places unknown, experiences

and thoughts unheard of, and it

is through my paintings that I can

truly express these feelings.

Where they will lead me is unknown,

but just like the Hare, that is what

inspires me.”

Jacqui is an artist of figurative

subjects with life and energy. Jacqui

lives and paints on an isolated farm

in Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with

her husband and daughter Phoebe.

While Jacqui’s subject matter is

invariably the human form, it is

secondary to her exploring form,

structure, movement, colour and

texture. In her recent body of work,

there is a translucent feel which

gives the paintings a whole new

interest.

She has been painting and

exhibiting for a long time. Jacqui

is also a past winner of the annual

CoCa award.

The power

of community

Orion is privileged to

have been associated

with Community Energy

Action (CEA) for more

than twenty years.

CEA is a charitable

trust that provides

insulation and energy

advice services to

the most vulnerable

in our community

with the overriding

objective of creating

warmer, healthier

and more energy

efficient homes.

Results of the Healthy

Homes Project, a recent

study undertaken by the

Canterbury District Health

Board and CEA, shows a

direct correlation between

insulated homes and a

reduction in hospital bed

days by up to 30%.

Working in a collaborative

partnership with CEA has

enabled a great deal to

be achieved where it is

most needed.

Many benefits from insulating homes

HEALTHY: A workman installing insulation under the floor of a

Canterbury home.

A successful partnership

between community, health

and commercial organisations

has helped save Canterbury

DHB nearly $1m, by providing

insulation and/or heating to high

health needs patients.

As well as reducing hospital

costs, it has also assisted in ensuring

people can remain in their

own homes.

In 2011, a Healthy Homes programme

was created between the

Canterbury DHB and the three

Canterbury primary health care

organisations, Community Energy

Action, Environment Canterbury

and the Energy Efficiency

Conservation Authority. Orion

and MainPower also contributed

funding into this programme.

The programme was developed

to keep people in their own

homes and communities rather

than using hospital services. This

recognised Canterbury’s compromised

housing stock following

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

The Canterbury DHB and partnering

organisations understood

the potential benefits for frequent

users of the health system of living

in warm and dry homes, including

improved physical and

mental health.

The programme initially focused

on people who had been in

the Christchurch Hospital at least

twice within a year prior to the

programme starting (defined as

being the highest-needs patients).

In July 2013, the programme was

extended to include general practice

patients, for example families

with children under 17 years

of age identified as being at risk

and parents with newborn babies.

The programme ran from 2011

to late 2014 and the whole programme

provided over 1500 insulation

installations and 450

heating appliances. Partnerships

amongst the organisations meant

many Healthy Homes’ clients

were referred to other organisations

and services, as additional

needs were identified.

A qualitative report was completed

by Pegasus Health in June

2015 on the whole programme.

Canterbury DHB invested

$1.7m over 2.5 years between

2011 and 2014, covering 22 per

cent of the total programme costs.

Around half of the $1.7m invested

went towards intervention

costs for the 900 highest-needs

patients, as defined above. The

remaining partnering organisations

covered the balance of the

total costs. Of those 900 highest-need

patients, a significant

number of them were aged over

65. There was an approximately

60 per cent/40 per cent split between

home owners and tenants.

After reviewing the health

data, comparing the year prior

to the interventions with the year

following, the findings showed a

29.2 per cent reduction in hospital

bed days of those 900 patients.

This equates to a reduction of

five bed days per annum, a cost

saving to the Canterbury DHB of

nearly $1m.

“This means the programme

was extremely successful for the

community and all involved including

the Canterbury DHB,”

says Caroline Shone, chief executive

of CEA.

“Whilst the cost for insulation

and heating is a one-off, the

benefits last for years. I’m sure

for the Canterbury DHB the return

on investment can be spent

on other health needs. This programme

was a first for CEA and

the other organisations involved,

I am really happy that we have

helped so many people working

in partnership with Government,

private and public sector organisations.”

Greg Hamilton from the Canterbury

DHB said he was “delighted

with the results.”

David Meates, CEO of Canterbury

DHB said: “This is just

brilliant to see the hard evidence

being brought to life.”

The above analysis only takes

into account one of a number of

benefits (hospitalisation) which

result from improving a home’s

insulation. There are other considerable

benefits to this programme

including:

Hospital benefits after the first

12 months – a single intervention

has a 40-year life span taking into

account the life of the insulation;

benefits to partners, children and

others living in the same dwelling;

benefits to future occupants;

reduction in other primary and

community services required for

intensive post-discharge rehabilitation;

reduction in absenteeism

from work/school for all home

occupants due to improved overall

health; people living in their

own homes with better wellbeing

and feeling safer; and empowerment

through improved physical

health, mental health and/

or an improved general state of

mind/well-being; establishment

of other successful working relationships

with a range of organisations,

with a focus to assist

vulnerable families.

To date, EECA has provided

approximately $450m worth of

subsidies for insulation nationwide

through their programmes,

including Warm Up New Zealand.

The Healthy Home Programme

analysis shows the need to continue

with programmes such as

these, particularly when EECA

and CEA through their own surveys,

have identified that there

are still over 30,000 low income

family homes in Canterbury

alone, with inadequate or no insulation.

There have been other relevant

New Zealand studies and discussions

over the years around the

need to improve housing quality

and the associated health benefits.

it aims to be a day of rugby fun

that celebrates participation in

sport in a non-competitive way.

“We don’t keep track of

to play against other schools,

including some country schools

which are not involved in the

16, will tee off on one

of United States’ most

prestigious golf courses

in July.

The Christchurch

Boys’ High School

student has been

accepted to play in the

IMG Junior World Golf

Championships in San

Diego.

He will play in the

15-17 boys’ section of

the competition which

involves 1200 participants

from 56 countries

competing on Torrey

Pines South Course,

which hosted the US

Open in 2008.

Brettkelly’s grandfather

gave him his first

golf club when he was

18-months-old and he

joined the Hororata Golf

Club when he was six

and started training at 12.

This is the first time

Brettkelly will compete in

the championships and he

is excited to stand on the same

course some of the greats have.

“Mum told me as soon as I

woke up and it just made my

day. It’s going to be a surreal

BIG STEP: Dominic Brettkelly teeing off at Hororata

experience, I’ve never played in

America so it’ll be a really great

opportunity,” he said.

This has been a goal for

Brettkelly for several years and

his coach, Rodney Yee, has been

helping him train every

day to get ready for the

tournament.

“Talent will only get

you so far. It’s really

down to hard work and

being focused on the end

goal,” Yee said.

For Brettkelly that

involves getting into

a US college on a golf

scholarship, and with college

scouts attending the

championships he hopes

to impress them.

“I want to get a

scholarship to play golf at

college in 2018, so there’s

a bit of pressure to stand

out at the tournament,”

he said.

The competition

doesn’t come cheap, the

Hororata Golf Club is

helping to get Brettkelly

to the US by hosting a

golf tournament in June.

“It’s very generous

of the golf club and the

community, especially

my granddad and my

parents, I wouldn’t be here

if it wasn’t for all the hard

work they put in,” he said.

Brettkelly will head to the

US on July 1 to get his bearings

before the competition starts on

July 10.

REDWOOD

Local pharmacy has long history

of friendly service

The ReDWooD Pharmacy in main

North Road has been in business for 60

years and over that time has become an

integral part of the local community.

Well-known and highly regarded by

everyone was owner Peter morgan, who

has now retired after 42 years at the

pharmacy.

“Peter will be sorely missed by all who

knew him, and it won’t be the same,” says

Keith elliott, who has had a half share

in the business since 2002 and has now

taken full ownership.

Two new faces have joined the team –

pharmacists eve Kitto and Paul Lau.

“Both are very experienced and

capable,” says Keith. “eve is here fulltime

and Paul is part-time. he had a

pharmacy in Cathedral Square before

the earthquake.”

The three hope to continue providing

the same community-focused care the

pharmacy prides itself upon, Keith says.

For people who need help managing

their medication, the pharmacists make

up 100+ medico packs, which they say is

a “great system” and invite customers to

call and talk about it if they wish.

The pharmacists are trained

specifically to dispense the morning after

pill, trimethoprim and viagra without

a doctor’s prescription (if you meet the

criteria), plus stop smoking patches,

gum and lozenges.

Blood pressure checks, ear piercing

and passport photos are also available,

to the elderly, with gentleness and

professionalism.

The practice has three surgeries,

female – offering treatments ranging

from fillings, extractions, root canals

and cleaning through to the more

sophisticated dental services. These

include cosmetic work such as bridges,

veneers, teeth whitening, Invisalign® (clear

braces) and Fastbraces®.

For teeth whitening they offer the Zoom

method, which is carried out at the clinic,

as well as providing trays of whitening

solution that patients can apply at home.

Implants are also available through

Redwood Family Dentists, says dentist

Shane Summerfield.

“an oral surgeon does the implants and

we then do the required cosmetic work on

top,” mr Summerfield says.

all the dentists understand that there

are people who are very nervous about

having dental treatment, he says, and

they cater for them accordingly with pain

mitigation.

“We provide IV sedation if required,

or otherwise oral sedation or nitrous, so

patients can feel much more relaxed about

having their dental work done.”

UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra in rehearsal

CHRISTCHURCH SCHOOL OF MUSIC

2015 was a really busy year for the

Christchurch school of Music with lots of

exciting things happening. In september

the school celebrated its Diamond Jubilee

– 60 years of providing excellent music

tuition and ensemble opportunities to

thousands of Cantabrians.

Other highlights of 2015 were working

with G&a Creative to develop a new

website, logo and brand for the school and

the signing of a sponsorship arrangement

with the University of Canterbury for our

flagship orchestra, now known as the UC

Christchurch Youth Orchestra.

Most exciting of all, in December, the

school moved back home onto the site of

the old Music Centre. with the support

of the Catholic Diocese, the school is

housed in four portable buildings on

the site adjacent to Catholic Cathedral

College where all the instrumental and

voice teaching takes place on a saturday

morning and after school. The buildings

will officially open on Friday 13 May

with a celebration to say thank-you to

all the organisations that have supported

us to get to this stage. Many hours of

work have gone into fitting out the new

buildings with furniture, shelving, storage

and teaching materials to ensure it is a

friendly, welcoming and efficient place

for the school to operate from. Particular

thanks to Creative New Zealand and Rata

Foundation who have provided financial

support for the fit out

so along with its new branding, a new

user-friendly website and a great new

place to call home the CsM is in good

heart and enjoying a fantastic year of

From pre-schoolers to septuagenarians,

the CsM caters for a wide range of ages

Tips to improve your running

Running should be as easy as

putting one foot in front of the other

right? Anyone can run, but having good

technique can make it feel so much

easier.

your runs feel less tiring, reduce

your risk of injury, and ultimately

be more enjoyable. Muscle People

and improving running technique

whether you are a competitive runner or

just running for fun.

start getting better now with these basic

tips:

POSTURE

• Keep your head straight

look straight ahead of you, about 30-40

metres out in front and avoid looking

down at your feet. looking down will

create tension in your neck and shoulders.

• shoulders back and down

Your shoulders should be back and down

not up by your ears. Keep them relaxed

and avoid tensing them. don’t hunch

over as this restricts breathing.

• Keep your elbows at 90 degrees

Your elbows should be bent at a 90 degree

angle. Try to swing your arms forward

and back, not across your body. This arm

movement helps to propel you forward.

Your hands should be relaxed, but don’t

let them flop. Tight hands can cause

tension all the way up to the back and

shoulders.

• solid core

Focus on keeping your core (trunk) firm,

though not rigid, and straight and your

Keeping this position in your hips can

FOOT STRIKE AND LEG POSITION

• don’t strike the ground too heavily

good running is light and quiet. You

should land in the middle of your foot

with a slightly bent knee. Whatever your

weight, your feet should not slap loudly

as they hit the ground. light steps are

more efficient and cause less stress to the

body and landing on the middle of your

foot is the safest way to land for most

recreational runners.

That’s the basics but there’s always more

we can do to help. Try these:

three calf injuries in the last 18 months

and i wanted to make sure my running

technique wasn’t contributing to that.

over the course of the RunFit programme

i improved my technique, got faster and

i’m injury free. My training plan is on

track for my first marathon in June.”

Celia, works in sydenham, “RunFit is

the perfect combination of running drills,

core strength and running and i enjoyed

the variety. The core strength training

has helped with my tennis and posture

and i’ve learnt a lot about running form

to help with training in my solo sessions.

The physiotherapist and personal

trainer are fantastic and work really well

together, their on-hand knowledge is

invaluable. The small group environment

is very encouraging and works for all

abilities. i highly recommend RunFit - in

fact i’ve just signed up for more!”

62 Marble Wood Dr, Papanui

Deadline sale: 4pm Tuesday, May 24, 2016 – may be sold prior

4 bedrooms | 3 living areas | 2 bathrooms | 2-car garage | Listing ID #: 3428GT

Superior homes in outstanding

locations are always hard to find

and buy. This is no more truer than

this home being featured in Marble

Wood Drive. An example of quality, style

and single level design that demands

immediate inspection. Our Vendor

reluctantly gives up a home that has given

them great pleasure to own and years of

enjoyment and security.

The home is approximately 210 square

metres and features three connecting

living areas that offer outstanding

collective entertaining space but can

still be used individually without

diminishing enjoyment.

Living opens to a courtyard and shade

trees. Outdoor living can be experienced

to the maximum here. Comprises four

bedrooms, guests bathrooms and an en

suite with his/hers walk-in robes/storage.

The established or growing family will

revel in the facilities provided.

The setting of 627m2 with its established

lawns and garden provides for garden

lovers and privacy hunters. This home is

“as new” having all its EQC repairs and

refurbishment completed. You’re buying a

special home in a very special location, and

won’t regret one minute of living here in

Marble Wood Dr. So close to the modern

facilities in Papanui and a short drive to

Northlands. The owner is retiring to his

new unit and welcomes you to inspect this

home before the deadline date.

at the end showed huge

passion from such a

young group of children,”

he said.

Organisers were

overhead saying that

they wished that all the

delegates had arrived to

be part of the opening.

“The children really did

themselves proud,

and I know that the

parents who were there

and who had helped

transport, were just as

proud of them as I was,”

Mr Buckner said.

As a non-government

organisation, Inner Wheel

within the United Nations

on committees in Geneva,

Vienna and New York to

better the lives of women

globally.
