Bid to get CCTV camera

to make intersection safer

ANDREW KING

A surveillance camera installed to

deter prostitution could be used to

show how dangerous a Harewood

intersection is.

Residents near the Breens, Harewood

and Gardiners Rd intersection

have raised serious safety concerns

to the community board about children

crossing and near misses.

The Breens, Harewood and Gardiners

Rd intersection has put locals

off letting their children

cycle or walk to

school and has drivers

avoiding it.

Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board

deputy chairman David

Cartwright (left)

said using a camera, like one on

Manchester St, St Albans, would allow

everyone to see the full picture.

The Manchester St camera was

installed on April 4 to deter clients

visiting sex workers in the residential

area.

Residents near the Breens, Harewood

and Gardiners Rd intersection

have raised serious safety concerns

to the community board about children

crossing and near misses.

Board deputy chairman David

Cartwright has asked for a temporary

camera, like the one used on the

corner of Manchester and Purchas

Sts, to monitor the intersection.

“We have heard from CTOC that

for every one reported crash, there

are 19 unreported ones. This will

give us the full picture,” he said.

Breens Intermediate principal

Nikki Clarke said it was a great idea

and was fully behind it.

“We try to encourage scooting,

biking and walking to school but it

is hard with this intersection . . . this

will show the full picture,” she said.

Harewood resident Julianne Grant

was delighted to hear something is

being done.

“It will show just what the community

has been saying. It will

show the near misses and just how

fast people are travelling along that

piece of road,” she said.

The Manchester St camera, a idea

of city councillor Ali Jones, was

installed to deter sex workers operating

in the residential area of the

street.

It has another week to go on its

free two week trial loan from ATF.

Resident Matt Bonis praised the

camera saying less and less clients

are visiting the girls in the area.

“It has really picked up the mood

of the neighbourhood. One of our

neighbours was at the end of his

tether and we were worried about

his mental health over this issue,”

he said.

New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective

spokeswoman Anna Reed said

the camera trial was a good idea to

solve a long standing problem.

“If they move back over Bealey

Ave that would be better for everyone,”

she said.

Fire alarms could have saved church

ANDREW KING

Fire alarms could have saved a

Bishopdale church from serious

damage.

A deliberately lit fire at the back of

St Margaret’s Presbyterian Church

on Sunday morning has seriously

damaged the building to the point it

may have to be pulled down.

Specialist fire investigator Bruce

Irvine said the lack of early detection

systems has allowed the fire to get to

the point where it could do serious

damage.

“Fire doubles in size every 30 seconds,”

he said.

“Because of that there has been a

significant delay before crews could

attend the fire . . . it is highly unlikely

that the building can be saved and

will probably be pulled down.”

Minister Andrew Nicol said the

building completely complied with

the fire code.

“Everything complied with the

code. Now we have to maintain as

much normal activity as we can onsite,”

he said.

Mr Irvine said it was a common

afTeR

thing for churches and community

centres not to have fire alarms because

under the fire code they are

not required too.

“We have community facilities

that are susceptible because of the

code,” he said.

Police have arrested a man in his

30s in connection with the fire.

Rangi Ruru plans

for the tech age

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students

are being prepared for jobs

that don’t even exist yet with the

launch of a new Creative

Technology Hub on campus.

The hub opened yesterday and

is available to all students to assist

learning in a range of different

subjects, such as coding and

robotics.

Principal Sandra Hastie said the

school absolutely understands the

importance of putting the right

emphasis on STEM subjects, science,

technology, engineering and

maths, particularly for girls.

“The hub will support students

to prepare for a future where most

of the jobs they will be working

in don’t even exist yet,” she said.

“Our students are able to take

their own personal interests in

technology and grow them with

essential skills in areas including

coding, robotics, gaming, app development,

3D printing and technology,

web design and the interactive

digital world.”

The hub is a re-purposed space

with new equipment and the

bringing together of resourcing.

FUTURE-PROOFING: Rangi Ruru students watch a robot make its way

through a maze.

Performers theatre

dreams a step closer

GEORGIA

O’CONNOR-HARDING

Two promising performers are

one step closer to their dreams

after being accepted into the The

Edge Performers School in

Melbourne.

St Albans Jack Duff and Papanui

Jack Shatford of were not

only accepted into the

performing arts schoolthey

won full scholarships

to cover their tuition

fees.

They were two of three

students from Impact

Dance and Stage School

who won the scholarships worth

$8900 Australian.

“I was very surprised. Because

I thought I did a bad audition...I

was shocked,” Mr Shatford said.

The Edge Performers School

specialises in commercial jazz,

musical theatre, acrobatics and

singing.

Impact Stage and Dance

School director Mandy Roberts

said she was very proud of her

students who she had been training

since they were in primary

school.

She described her students as

self-disciplined, hard-working

and “nice boys”.

On top of being involved

in numerous productions this

year, Mr Duff has been attending

Canterbury University while

Mr Shatford has been at Hagley

Community College.

Both performers are hoping

to pursue careers in the musical

theatre industry.

Mr Duff (left) said he has decided

to put his bachelor of

law and arts on hold after

deciding to pursue working

in the musical theatre

industry.

He said he is still considering

his options but is

looking at performing arts

schools in Melbourne.

“I’ve always wanted to live in

Melbourne...it is just such a vibrant

city and has such a strong

cultural scene”

Mr Duff hopes one day to be

involved in a large musical theatre

production overseas.

“It sounds like so much fun.

Just one big adventure...its so

central to musical theatre in Australasia,”

Mr Shatford said.

Both Mr Duff and Mr Shatford

are involved in Showbiz Christchurch’s

upcoming production

of Hairspray at the Isaac Theatre

Royal next month.

I work here,

$76m arterial plan criticised

BY ANDREW KING

The St Albans Residents

Association says $76m

allocated for the Northern

Arterial Extension and the

Cranford St upgrade could be

used for commuter transport

projects.

The city council released its

draft annual plan last week and

is now considering $76m to

fund two projects in the amended

long term plan.

Last year it voted to remove

the $50m funding provision for

the Northern Arterial extension

and Cranford St upgrade projects

from its long term plan.

SARA co-chairwoman Emma

Twadell said the funding would

be better spent on commuter

travel, public transport and a

cycleway out to Waimakiriri

Bridge and beyond rather than

dumping a heap of traffic in

their backyards.

“Research in other cities

proves bigger roads do not

solve congestion,” she said.

“Car pooling lanes, bus

lanes, park and ride facilities

and easier access for buses to

get into the city centre would

be better options than another

motorway.”

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board chairman Mike Davidson

NEW ARTERIAL: The Northern Arterial will end at Innes Rd and traffic will have to make its way

through St Albans to the city centre something residents are not happy with. Inset: Mike Davidson

said while he agreed that more

roads may not be the answer,

congestion from the north had

to be addressed.

“I agree with Emma, we

need to look at other transport

options . . . before we get to the

point of not being able to cope

with roading issues lets look at

things like rail now, it is

future-proofing the city,” he

said.

“The northern arterial will

take place,’’ he said.

“We have to work out how

it can go ahead with the least

amount of negative effect for

the St Albans residents.”

Mr Davidson has asked city

council staff to investigate how

the northern arterial can be

linked into the city centre’s oneway

system.

“If we can get it linked up

with the one-way systems then

cars will not be rat-running

through St Albans,” he said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should the

money being allocated for two

roading projects be used for

more public transport and a

cycleway out towards the north?

Les McFadden

Rugby stalwart big part

The Belfast Rugby Club will celebrate 100 years of

playing the code over Queen’s Birthday weekend.

A face that has been behind the scenes for 60-plus

years is Les McFadden. He speaks with Andrew

King about players that have come through the

club, his love for the community and what he thinks

about the new Super Rugby format

Hi Les, tell us how long you

have been involved in the

Belfast Rugby Club for?

I have been involved with

the club since 1953. I started

playing for them in the under

five stone 10 pound grade from

memory. I played right through

the grades but didn’t make the

premier side due to injury. I then

got involved with the committee

when I was 17.

That seems like an early age

to get into the committee.

Yeah, it was but I was sort of

roped into it (laughing). I am a

life member now and still get

involved with all the funding

stuff for the club.

The club is celebrating its

100th on Queen’s Birthday

weekend, should be a big one?

Yeah, it will be a good one.

We have a whole range of things

planned for it. Steve Tew and a

few others will be there. Unfortunately

ex-club member Wayne

Smith won’t be able to make it

due to All Black commitments

but we have three days worth

of celebrations so it should be a

good event.

Your connection to rugby

runs quite deep then, you also

work with the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union?

Yes I do. I am team leader

of the liaison officer group for

the union. I was the assistant

to Alex “Grizz” Wyllie for the

Canterbury A team from 1982 to

1985 and we held onto the Ranfurly

Shield for three years after

we nicked it from Wellington,

around 25 defences I think.

Between 1986 and 1995

I floated between being the

manager and assistant manager

of the Canterbury team. On top

of that I am also the All Black

liaison officer when they are

playing here, I have done that

for more than 20 years.

What is it like to have a connection

to the All Blacks for

more than 20 years?

It’s great. They are such a

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

great set of blokes, so down to

earth. I don’t ever really talk

rugby with them as they probably

do enough of that already.

I do all the bookings for where

they stay, train, relax and put

together an itinerary with all the

things they want to do while

in Christchurch. Unfortunately

after the earthquakes, we are a

bit short of venues for them but

that will come right.

Who has been your

favourite to get to know over

the years?

Daniel Carter and

Richie McCaw used to

wind me up a bit about

Belfast but they are

complete gentlemen.

You can’t say enough

about Richie, the man

is a legend. They are

brilliant around the

kids, but that is what

they are there to

do.

of Belfast centenary

They are role models and all

the aspiring All Blacks look up

to them.

In 63 years around the

Belfast club you must have

seen some changes?

We have the same story that

repeats quite often when it

comes to our players getting

picked off by the high school

squads. We will have players

and show some promise, but

and start playing for their first

struggled in the top division

for quite a while. But the one

thing that hasn’t changed is the

atmosphere in the clubrooms on

Saturday. It is always full of kids

and adults and it is buzzing.

Who has been some of the

standout players you have seen

come through Belfast?

Bill Bush is still in the club

and is a life member. He was

a great player for us, the All

Blacks and the New Zealand

Maori team in the 70s. Then of

course there is Wayne Smith

who was an All Black and

out through lack of trying. The

club is only part of what I get

involved with in the community.

I am a Rotary member, on the

Belfast Emergency Response

Plan committee alongside all

the work for the CRFU and the

historical union.

You were awarded a Queen’s

Service Medal and a Local

Hero Medal for your services

to rugby and the community,

how did that feel?

It was alright, if I am being

honest it was a bit embarrassing

as a lot of other people do a lot

of work behind the scenes as

well. There are a lot of people

around that are pillars of the

rugby community that should all

be recognised.

You mentioned you were

married, can you tell me about

your family?

Yes. I married Elaine 52 years

ago and we have three children.

Are they all still in

Christchurch?

No, we have two overseas and

one here in Christchurch. Kim

and lives in Australia, Greg

works for a big fencing company

basketball fan?

The biggest. He has season

tickets to all of the home games

and loves the fact that Steven

Adams is over there getting

stuck into some of those soft

Americans (laughing). He has

actually managed to get a bunch

of signed Steven Adams gear for

our 100-year celebration in June.

We will raffle it off to raise some

money for the club.

Have you been over to the

United States?

Yeah, we haven’t been for a

while. But my daughter is over

in mid-June. And my son will be

here mid-June also so that will

be good. He comes every year.

Finally what is your

impression of the new and

improved Super 18 format?

It is messy. I don’t like the

fact that you don’t play

everyone. Some of the new

Zealand teams have more

points than other teams leading

their conferences. It has got to

unwieldy but it is no surprise

the Kiwi squads are at the

top. We have such a fantastic

Belfast club set to celebrate

ANDREW KING

Belfast Rugby Club will

celebrate 100 years of rugby

on Queen’s Birthday weekend,

something the club was not

expecting to do until 2047.

Originally it was thought the

club formed in 1947, just after

World War 2 and it celebrated

its 25 years in 1972 and 50

years in 1997.

It wasn’t until club stalwart

and life member Les McFadden

found an application to register

a Belfast team in 1908 that they

realised the club was older than

first thought.

Belfast played their first game

that year against the Richmond

Rugby Club.

It had teams in the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union competition

from 1908 until 1938 and

from 1939 went into recess

during World War 2 as a number

of the players were drafted into

the war.

As the club was not playing

for eight years, its 100th year actively

playing rugby is this year.

Records prior to the 1947

team a few and far between

with a couple of team lists from

1908 found a photo of the 1935

team.

Mr McFadden found a clipping

from the Christchurch Star

colours of green and gold were

accepted”, the club was born.

From 1908-38 the club plied

its trade in Darroch St and used

the Orange Hall as clubrooms.

When the club reformed in

1947 the pavilion on Sheldon

Park, which is now a playcentre,

was used for the club.

Ten years later local farmer

and club patron Edgar Wilson

purchased a building from

the Lyttleton Naval Base and

moved it to 803 Main North Rd

as the new Belfast clubrooms.

A dance attended by over 400

people was held for the opening

on December 13, 1958.

The club finally settled at 8

Grant Jarrold.

Saturday will be a mix of

teams playing rugby throughout

the day with a spit roast meal at

7.30pm for registered attendees

and invited guests.

A live band will play later on

and a raffle will be held.

Mr McFadden said there will

be plenty of gear to be raffled

off including some special items

sent from the United States.

“My son has sent over some

Oklahoma City Thunder gear

signed by Steven Adams, which

is extremely difficult to get but

we have it and we will raffle it,”

he said.

On top of the OKC gear there

is signed All Black, Crusaders

and Canterbury gear to be won

as well.

“I have collected a good deal

of stuff over the years but I have

given it all away,” Mr McFadden

said.

New church unites congregations

ANDREW KING

CHUFFED: Reverend Hugh Perry stands excitedly in front of the recently completed

St Albans Uniting Parish ready to make it a community hub.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

The St Albans Uniting Parish opened

its doors to its congregation for the first

time on Sunday since completely rebuilding

its church.

The church was rebuilt after the February

22, 2011, earthquake damaged the

hall beyond repair.

Now the groups and parishioners are

coming back hungry for a space to worship

and use for community activities.

Reverend Hugh Perry has been with

the parish for eight years and said the

church was built with the future in mind.

“The worship area sits 200 and we

currently have a congregation of around

40, so we have plenty of room to grow

into,” he said.

He said most of the groups they had

before the rebuild had come back to

book space.

The parish is a coming together of two

Methodist congregations and one Presbyterian

group.

St Albans Presbyterian Church on Berwick

St and St Albans Methodist Church

on Rugby St merged onto the Aldred

Methodist Church site on the corner of

Nancy Ave and Knowles St.

It was renamed the St Albans Uniting

Parish to symbolise the coming together

of congregations.

At the start of 2015 the old church was

demolished, in late February the foundations

were laid for the new building and

it was completed on April 18.

“I am pretty chuffed with the whole

thing, it’s a great worship space. We

want to be the local point that everyone

can come together and have a great

space to use,” he said.

Rev Perry said the area was lacking

community space where the residents

can attend groups or meet who is around

them.

“We will have the Menzshed here,

plenty of rooms to hold workshops or

classes in and the community garden

will provide locals with fresh vegetables,”

he said.

Its garden is already a success after recently

winning both the community garden

and best yield award in the Shirley-

Papanui Edible Garden Awards.

Wairakei School pupils have

learned how to make a camp

fire, cooked potatoes and were

welcomed on to Ngati Moki

Marae for their school camp.

The first day was full of new

experiences including being

part of a powhiri, sharing

their mihi, before heading to

the beach to make bonfires to

cook potatoes.

They also explored Southbridge

which included walking

around a community

garden complete with pigs and

chickens.

After all the activity the

pupils got back to camp for

a spaghetti bolognese dinner

with apple crumble and ice

cream for dessert.

LEARNING TO COOK: Wairakei School pupils learnt how to build a

camp fire and then cooked potatoes on it.

END RESULT: After cooking

potatoes on their fires the pupils

put some butter on them and

tucked in.

Good deed from Rangi girls

GENEROUS: The Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s harvest festival

gathered almost 2000 items for the Christchurch City Mission.

School’s head of service Lucy Glass (speaking) said the food was

collected to donate to families and people in need around the

city. “The girls collected 1912 non-perishable food items for the

Christchurch City Mission,” she said. The harvest festival was

organised by the Rangi Ruru Service Council.

A tale of two lives

ANDREW KING

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and

Christ’s College students have

come together to put on the production

Our House which opens

tomorrow.

It’s a musical that explores the

themes of love, family values,

growing up, responsibility and

dealing with losing the people

that shape us.

Our House follows lead character

Joe, played by Christ’s

Henry Rolleston, and the two different

paths his life could head

down after his 16th birthday.

One path means a criminal record

and social exclusion, while

the other will lose him the girl

he loves, Sarah, played by Rangi

Ruru’s Cassie Henderson.

It spans seven years, during the

two alternative lives, Joe deals

with the consequences.

All of these choices and decisions

are watched over by Joe’s

deceased father who pulls the

two stories, the two very different

lives, together.

Christ’s College’s director of

drama and co-director David

Chambers said the producers

from both schools are delighted

by the high calibre of the actors

and the production team.

“It is a multi-talented cast

headed by the two leading characters

who have the triple threat

quality of being able to act, sing

and dance,” he said.

“Cassie Henderson, wellknown

from TV’s X-Factor,

plays Sarah, the lead female role

and the lead male role is taken by

Henry Rolleston who played the

title role in the Christ’s College

2015 production of Dr Faustus.”

Rangi Ruru’s dance teacher

and co-director Hannah Clarkson

said it’s a modern musical full of

anarchy, madness and mayhem.

“It’s one of those productions

when the final package is more

than the sum of the individual elements,”

she said.

With a cast of over 60, Our

House presents the top actors

from Rangi Ruru including Ella

Minehan Fitzgerald and Electra

Scott playing Sarah’s best mates,

and Kathryn Ford as Joe’s mother.

Volunteers wanted for

dementia sufferers

Alzheimers Canterbury is

looking for recruits to join

its volunteering service by

becoming a companion,

activities assistant, or driver for

people with dementia.

A companion visits an Alzheimers

Canterbury client on

a weekly or fortnightly basis.

They may go for a walk, watch

a movie or have a cup of tea

and a chat.

Alzheimers Canterbury

volunteer co-ordinator

Monique Schoneveld said they

are trying to help dementia

sufferers have “fun and

meaningful” lives.

“We want clients in our

community to live well with

dementia, to have fun and

meaningful lives. Volunteers

can play a huge role in this often

being the highlight of their

day,” she said.

Activity assistants help with

a community activities programme

run through Alzheimers

Canterbury, and give clients

opportunities to enjoy the

things they used to in a normalised,

safe and supported

setting.

Activities include swimming,

community gardening, art appreciation,

baking for Ronald

McDonald House, and others.

Another way to make a client’s

day is as a personal driver.

Many clients have lost their

driver’s license so transport can

be an everyday hurdle.

To make sure a volunteer

is compatible with a client,

there is a matching service run

through Alzheimers Canterbury,

which ensures a match.

how to become a volunteer,

Crew’s success draws young dancers

Zion Studios has seen a huge

recent success at the World

the roll normally sits around

“We currently have 220

“We have quite a few adult

enrolments on the back of our

doing so well,” she said.

The trouble with a number

of people wanting to get

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | MAY 2016

EQC’s approach to

its repair obligations

Land settlements update

Keith Land, EQC Head of Canterbury Land Settlement

EQC is now working on the remaining eleven percent of

green zone properties and red zone properties (not owned

by the Crown), which still need their land claims resolved.

“From a total of 73,000 such properties which had land claims,

there are now around 8,000 where the land claims still need to

be settled by EQC,” says EQC Head of Canterbury Land

Settlement, Keith Land.

This year EQC is aiming to complete these remaining land

damage settlements, with the majority of work focusing on

claims for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) and

Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV) land damage.

As of early May, 60 percent of potential Increased Flooding

Vulnerability (IFV) customers (9,600) have had their IFV claims

resolved. This also includes any outstanding visible land

damage settlements these customers may have.

Together with resolving remaining IFV claims, the priority now

is on settlements for the around 4,400 ILV customers. Some

properties have both ILV and IFV land damage.

“We’re on track to start making the first payments to ILV

customers from late June,” says Mr Land.

Settlements for ILV land damage will be made by cash payment,

in line with how IFV and other types of land damage from the

2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes have been settled to date.

ILV settlements will be based on one of two approaches: repair

cost, or reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land

damage – also called Diminution of Value (DOV). Information on

ILV, and details of these settlement approaches, including

answers to a number of questions, can be found on the EQC

website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV

ILV land damage settlements on the basis of DOV

EQC expects that most ILV properties will be settled solely on the

basis of DOV. This is because, where the house has remained in

place after the earthquakes (as many have), there will not

generally be repair methods available to repair ILV damage on the

property. The first payments made in late June will be to those

customers with ILV land damage whose settlements are based on

DOV. “The ILV DOV approach and settlement amounts will be

similar to how we’ve been handling IFV claims,” says Mr Land.

Claim

deadline

looming

Christchurch residents whose

homes suffered damage

in the 29 February 2016

earthquake still have time

to lodge a claim with EQC.

The deadline for lodging

a claim is 30 May 2016.

This deadline does not stop

you from lodging a new claim

with EQC if your dwelling

incurs new damage as part

of recent or future quakes.

EQC encourages anyone

whose home suffered

damage in this event to make

a claim even if the damage

appears minor.

“We’ve been working closely with customer advocates groups to

make sure the settlement communications our customers receive

is clear and helps them understand our decision.”

ILV land damage settlements

on the basis of repair cost

Work is underway to determine the settlements for ILV

customers whose payments can be based on repair cost.

“We are planning to start contacting customers in early June

who, based on the information we have to date, have the

opportunity to complete a ground repair on their property to

address the ILV land damage,” says Mr Land. Before the repair

cost settlements can be made, EQC will be working closely with

these customers to understand their plans for rebuilding on the

site and whether the plans include any ground repair.

“We will have a dedicated team case managing these customers

to ensure EQC has a good understanding of their situation and

they are kept up-to-date with their claim’s status,” says Mr Land.

Land assessments and settlements in general

“We have identified different types of land damage – visible land

damage, IFV and ILV. For each type of land damage, we use a

range of assessment processes that allow the appropriate

settlement for each customer and are consistent with the

legislation in place.

“Each property is different and is assessed on a case-by-case

basis, so one customer’s settlement is not indicative of

another’s,” says Mr Land.

For more information on the approach to land claims and their

settlement, visit www.eqc.govt.nz/land.

“We also have an open and robust review process in place for

those customers who want us to review our decisions on

whether their insured land has damage and/or the settlement

amount paid,” says Mr Land.

Check out www.eqc.govt.nz/landreview for more information

on land settlement review.

Land settlements for red zone properties

EQC is assessing all residential land claims across Canterbury

in a consistent way – whether they are green zone properties or

red zone properties.

The Government’s decisions related to the red zone are separate

from EQC’s decisions related to the assessment and settlement

of land damage claims.

As agreed with CERA and now Land Information New Zealand

(LINZ), EQC’s priority continues to be to resolve land damage

claims for properties in the green zone and those in the red

zone, whose owners did not accept a Crown offer.

“However, we continue to work with LINZ, which has taken over

management of the around 7,000 Crown owned red zone

properties. We expect to agree a settlement approach with LINZ

in the second half of 2016, applying the same policies EQC has

used to settle green zone claims,” says Mr Land.

EQC has so far received just

over 10,500 building, contents

and land claims since the first

quake on Valentine’s Day.

People can lodge claims

with EQC online at www.eqc.

govt.nz/claims via email on

info@eqc.govt.nz or by calling

0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243).

The EQC call centre is open

7am to 9pm Monday to Friday

and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

There has been some discussion about how the Earthquake

Commission meets its obligations under the Earthquake Commission

Act (EQC Act) following the release of the Joint Statement agreed

with a group of Canterbury homeowners, the EQC Action Group.

Information on what the joint statement means for customers

and how customers can request a review of their claim can be found

at www.eqc.govt.nz

EQC acknowledges that every homeowner affected by earthquake damage

faces a set of circumstances specific to their property and that a different repair

strategy is likely to be applied in each case. That said, EQC uses some general

principles when making its decisions. EQC insures an earthquake-damaged

house for its replacement value up to a certain cap, usually $115,000 including

GST, according to the EQC Act. Given there has been some confusion about

what “replacement value” means, it’s worth having a close look at the

definition in the EQC Act, which includes three main elements:

1. the costs which would be reasonably incurred

2. in reinstating the building to a condition substantially the same as but not

better or more extensive than its condition when new

3. modified as necessary to comply with any applicable laws.

Some of the commentary following the Joint Statement focused on the

concept of “when new”, which refers to when the house was new. While

“when new” is one element, EQC needs to take into account each of the

three main elements, when meeting its obligations under the Act. For

instance, the concept of when new needs to be seen in light of complying

with any applicable laws.

How ‘replacement value’ may apply in practice

Example 1

Following an earthquake, a brick chimney falls through the corrugated iron

roof of a 1900s-era villa.

The falling chimney smashes through the ceiling, shattering a ceramic light

fitting that was already badly deteriorated prior to the earthquake.

To repair the roof, the corrugated iron in the area where the chimney fell

would be replaced with new corrugated iron. If corrugated iron of the same

type as the damaged iron is not available because it is no longer

manufactured, the new corrugated iron would be a modern product, which

matches as closely as possible the profile of the damaged corrugated iron.

In some situations, the new corrugated iron may be coloured steel or

the corrugated iron may need to be repainted to match the colour of the

existing roof.

EQC may also need to reinstate or replace non-damaged parts of the roof

that need to be removed in order to repair the earthquake damage, such as

the iron ridging on the roof peak.

The repair work to the roof would be carried out to ensure the work meets

applicable laws such as the performance standards in the Building Code.

The light fitting would be replaced. If the existing wiring couldn’t be safely

reconnected to the light fitting then an Electrical Safety Inspection would be

required. The wiring would need replacing to a point where the electrician

determines it can safely be reconnected, and to meet any legal requirements

for that work.

Example 2

An earthquake damages the so-called ‘rubble foundations’ a home is built

on. If the foundation can be repaired so that the foundation is in a condition

substantially the same as when it was new and the repair work complies with

applicable laws, the foundation repair will meet the “replacement value”

standard. In other cases, to meet the standard of applicable laws, part or

all of the foundation may need to be replaced. EQC considers each repair

strategy based on the facts specific to each home. Individual foundation

repairs are dependent on the nature of the foundation, the type of

earthquake damage suffered and the make-up of the concrete.

Customers can request a review

If any customer believes EQC has missed earthquake damage to their home,

disagrees with the repair strategy EQC has proposed, or believes their

settlement amount is not correct, they can use EQC’s standard processes to

request a review of their individual claim on 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243)

or email info@eqc.govt.nz

Clean lint filters in

your clothes dryer

BY MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK

MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Last Saturday a fire reported in a clothes

dryer in a commercial building in St

Asaph St was dealt with by the two city

crews attending using breathing apparatus

and fire extinguishers.

It’s another timely reminder that colder

conditions and the need for drying washing

inside must hit us soon considering

we’re just a couple of weeks short of officially

being in winter.

Home tumble dryers are found everywhere

and will be utilised more and more

as winter bites. They are generally fairly

safe but we do occasionally get called out

when they ignite.

The best prevention for this happening

is to clean the lint filter every time before

turning the machine on and to make

sure someone is home while it’s operating.

Then if all does go wrong the result

should be no worse than that in St Asaph

St. It does tend to ruin your day when

contacted at work to be told your house

has burned down.

Two good examples last weekend of

firefighters going the extra mile included

the retrieval of a model plane from a

tree at QE II and the assistance given

to an elderly lady in South New

Brighton.

DISASTER: Tumble dryers can ignite if they

aren’t maintained.

This woman had slipped and crashed

through a glass door at her home. She

was kept in hospital overnight and then

released, only to come home to the still

broken door.

Wainoni’s crew spent an hour and a

half contacting insurance and repair

people.

They stayed available for further calls

but saved some real anguish by taking

charge. That’s good work.

BRYNDWR

The name Bryndwr has Welsh origins

and was given to the area by European

settler Charles Jeffreys, who owned 100

acres of farmland in 1880. The name

translates ‘on the brink of the water’.

The area was named for the small creeks

forming the headwaters of the Waimairi

Stream and close proximity to Lake

Bryndwr.

NOR’WEST NEWS

BRyndWR IS generally identified as being the area

around Aorangi and Wairakei Roads. It is one of two

suburbs in the norwest of Christchurch (Burnside

is the other) which experienced rapid growth when

Christchurch expanded out from the city centre in the

1950s and 1960s. This expansion was accelerated due

to World War Two ex-servicemen returning to build

homes and settle with their families.

Lake Bryndwr was the name given

to the three shingle pits fed by an

underground spring located in close

proximity to Roydvale Avenue and

Wairakei Rd. It was quarried by the Ashby

Brothers which provided much of the

stone and gravel for drives and paths. The

main pit, known as Lake Bryndwr, was

extremely deep - between 4.5 - 6 metres

in depth. On the outskirts of the main

pit was a race track (1.5 miles in length)

where midget cars were raced. The lake was

utilised for water skiing and recreational

fishing (brown and rainbow trout). A

sawmill was located closer to Wairakei

Road. The dragline, used to pull the

shingle out of the pits, was moved to the

Waimakariri Bridge about 1962.

Most of the land in Bryndwr and

Burnside was farmed for the first hundred

years in small blocks to sheep, cattle,

market gardening and orchards. In 1878

the Greer homestead was built (now 302

Greers Road) and was a visible landmark

for miles.

A church of note in Bryndwr is the St

Johns Methodist Church at 49 Bryndwr

Road. The church was consecrated in

1927. A memorial lychgate was built at the

Methodist Church dedicated to the pioneer

methodists of the St Albans circuit.

Waimairi School was one of the Bryndwr

area’s earliest school. Originally, from

1914 it was a side school of Papanui

but came into existence in its own right

in 1920. Waimairi School had a large

number of children from two orphanages

in the area – one Presbyterian, the other

Methodist.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Reclaim your

identity

When it comes to dentures, Christchurch people

have access to world-leading techniques and oral

aesthetics right on their doorstep.

At his Montreal street studio Lovebite,

internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees creates

beautiful bespoke dentures with small

nuances in the fabrication, colour and

shape, and even slight imperfections to

create a uniquely individual smile.

There is no need for dentures to look

false. Richard takes a great deal of

satisfaction in making bespoke dentures

that look 100 per cent real and natural,

personally guiding his patients through

the transformation process to craft a

smile that reflects their individuality and

personality, and recreates their natural

pre-denture smile.

Not only do Lovebite teeth look

real, the whole structure and shape of

the patient’s face is transformed with

Richard’s top-of-the-line dentures,

something he calls his signature ‘denture

lift’.

“With appropriate facial support, the

facial tissues are brought back into the

correct position, the lips are reformed,

and beauty is restored,” he says.

it is the interior architecture of a

Lovebite denture that helps to create a

more youthful appearance by recovering

the face and skeletal shape that can be

lost after years of wearing dentures.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Richard’s vast experience includes

15 years of running his own clinic in

the prestigious harley st, London,

where he treated people from all walks

of life, from barrow boys to the rich

and famous, politicians, actors and

musicians.

his techniques are recognised as

world-leading among his international

peers, and he is regularly asked to

lecture and run courses worldwide.

Miles Cone (DMD, Ms, FACP, CDt),

a prosthodontist from Oregon, UsA,

said in November 2015: “Richard

Greenlees’ craftsmanship is as stunning

as it is unique. There is liberation in

the calculated imperfection, indeed an

asperity that reflects a purely human

element.”

in addition to dentures, Richard also

carries out crown and bridge, veneer

and implant work, in conjunction

with like-minded dental surgeons who

complement his creative and aesthetic

work.

“teeth are as different as fingerprints

and vary greatly depending on a person’s

age, sex and race. Dentures from

Lovebite reflect this, and are as unique

and individual as the people they are

made for,” says Richard.

There is nothing more satisfying for

Richard than to see his patients leave

the Lovebite studio with their selfconfidence

and identity restored, as well

as their smile.

Confidence and beauty is restored with a new

denture by Lovebite.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Papanui’s Past

NOR’WEST NEWS

SCHOLARSHIPS &

State of the art schools

for Christchurch’s east

FAMILY HOME: Judy Pethig’s family moved to Papanui into a property at 56 North Rd, an

attractive arts and craft house that still exists.

Street name recognises

family’s ties with area

MURRAY WILLIAMS,

PAPANUI HERITAGE

GROUP

Judy Pethig (née Tulloch) was

born in Wellington in 1939.

In 1946 her father, a radio

engineer, was transferred

to Christchurch to take

responsibility for the technical

aspects of the state radio

network in the South Island.

The family moved to

Papanui into a property at

56 North Rd, an attractive

arts and craft house that still

exists.

However, appearances were

misleading, Judy remembers

that the house was, at that

stage in poor repair and had

not really been properly

finished in spite of being

supposedly completed in the

early 1920s.

However, she recalls the

wood panelling and the

beautiful staircase as well

as the lead light windows,

the latter evoking mixed

feelings as it was her job to

clean them, a task she found

difficult and time consuming.

Judy attended Papanui

Primary School in Winters Rd

and then transferred to the

Adventist Central School in

Grants Rd.

Although the school was

small, Judy found a very

supportive atmosphere

and it was decided that she

would remain there for her

secondary education as it

offered the commercial course

she wanted.

In 1952, Judy’s father

purchased land adjoining

the family home at 56 North

Rd which he developed as

a market garden producing

fruit and vegetables.

One of his customers was St

George’s Hospital.

Judy helped out and recalls

bundling asparagus which

was secured with two rubber

bands.

She also grew gladioli and

sold them from the front gate

of the property.

In 1954, Judy’s father sold

enough of his land to develop

six residential sections.

The family name is

commemorated in the name

of this street, Tulloch Pl,

which runs off Halliwell Ave.

The family later purchased

a ladies’ clothing business at

2A North Rd and renamed it

Vanity Fair, Judy worked in

the shop which was managed

by her mother.

In 1963, Judy married Ian

Pethig, and the reception was

held across the road from the

family home in the RSA Hall

on the corner of Langdons Rd.

This site is now occupied by

the Westpac Bank.

Judy subsequently lived

In Windwhistle and Picton

for 46 years as her husband

worked as an automotive

mechanic in these towns.

Eventually the attraction

of friends and relatives

prompted her return to live in

the Papanui area.

•Judy Pethig’s formative years

were spent in Papanui and she

has vivid memories of living,

learning and working in the

area.

A performing arts centre, sports

facilities, gymnasium, a cutting-edge

library and technology suites are just

some of the facilities that will be built

into the new Avonside girls’ and

Shirley Boys’ High Schools.

The two schools will be open

alongside each other on a new campus

in time for the beginning of the 2019

school year. The ministry of education

is spending at least $80-million on the

campus.

Qe2 park has been named as the

preferred site for the campus, where

it could be built alongside the eastern

Sport and recreation Centre that will

have numerous swimming pools and

water facilities.

This will be the first time in new

Zealand’s history that two single sex

schools have co-located. Avonside

girls’ principal Sue Hume says the new

campus will offer the best of both the

single-sex and co-educational worlds.

“Students will spend most of their day

in a single-sex environment but there

will be times when they can interact

with students from the other school.

for example, we’ll have a shared library,

a combined café and an extensive

bus network that students from both

schools willl use. This enables our

students valuable social development,”

says Sue Hume.

“This will a place the community can

be proud of with facilities that everyone

will be able to use. We are looking

forward to seeing the proposal become

reality.”

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Shirley Boys High School

Connecting with students

SHirley BoyS’ High School encourages students to strive for personal

excellence. guided by the commonly known expression BTB (Better than

Before), Shirley boys develop attitudes and skills for lifelong learning and

personal growth in a positive, supportive environment. The culture and ethos

of the ‘Shirley man’ focuses on connections with students’ roots, so they are

socially and emotionally competent, resilient and optimistic about the future.

learning, both inside and outside the classroom, is specifically tailored to

suit boys needs ensuring higher engagement, resulting in greater success and

higher achievement levels. Through enrichment and acceleration classes across

all curriculum levels and subjects, Shirley Boys’ High performance Centre

offers multiple learning pathways – nCeA, igSCe and extension courses

through the University of Canterbury.

programmes focus on inquiry

learning, high thinking skills and

global perspectives.

Academic scholarships are awarded

annually to the top performing student

at each year level and an entrance

Scholarship is awarded on the basis of

an examination for year 8 students.

in January 2019, the new Shirley

Boys’ will open alongside Avonside

girls’ on the former Qeii park site.

This will be the first time two single

sex schools have co-located in new Zealand and both schools are looking

forward to the move. “There will be one campus, but there will be two separate

schools each retaining its own culture, curriculum and uniform”

says John laurenson.

Riccarton High School Peerswick Scholarship

every yeAr riccarton High School awards

two peerswick Scholarships to year 8 students

who show strengths in the academic, sporting,

cultural and service fields.

The term ‘peerswick’ is an Upper riccarton

name which has been associated with the

school since 1959 when the school magazine

was named peerswick. in the latter part of

the 19 th century, a local horse stud was called

peerswick after a famous racehorse at the

stud called The peer and the area was called

peerswick for many years.

The 2012 winners were Dean Holdaway

and rachel Wu. now in year 13, the two have

made their mark in the school just as have all

the Scholarship winners.

Winning the $1,000 peerswick Scholarship

was an achievement they were proud of as

well as providing a useful investment for

the future.

At school they gained entrance to the top

class, felt confident that they could achieve

and seeing their names on the honours board

in the hall has been a constant reminder of

their potential.

Dean came to riccarton from Halswell

School, while rachel came from Westburn

School.

Both students have a fine pedigree in music.

They are members of the new Zealand

Secondary Schools Symphony orchestra

where they play the clarinet. They have both

gained grade 8 in clarinet.

rachel was a member of the chamber group

‘papricca’ which won the people’s Choice in

the national Chamber music competition,

a fine achievement. She also sings in the

auditioned choir, ‘Stella Cantare’. Dean

plays in the Concert Band and the Jazz Band

and last year had the lead role in the school

production of ‘Bugsy malone’.

Both rachel and Dean have achieved

excellence in nCeA in both year 11 and

year 12. rachel gained 2 nd place in the Brain

Bee competition as a year 11 and has gained

distinction in several maths and science

competitions.

Dean is planning to study electrical

engineering at Canterbury, while rachel will

study medicine at otago.

As year 13s they are very involved

in student activities, organising events,

mentoring year 9s at the beginning of the year

and being role models through the school.

They feel well prepared for this task as they

have been encouraged to be leaders and show

responsibility right from

year 9.

‘The peerswick Scholarship was not only

wonderful to win, it also gave us a great

start as we began our time at riccarton. We

have had great years here and this year is no

different,’ said Dean.

Not all first aid certificates

are created equal

While first aid courses must

achieve prescribed new

Zealand Qualification

Authority (nZQA) standards

to be certified, not all training providers deliver

the same course. Providers offering shortened

courses or courses not meeting nZQA training

requirements are now in the spotlight.

nZQA and the Department of Labour have

published a factsheet to outline requirements

for first aid training based on currently

registered nZQA unit standards. Below are a

summary of what we think you should know.

Course differences

training providers can market their courses

under a wide range of names. employers

should be cautious in thinking that a one-day

workplace first aid course will meet their needs

in industries such as construction, engineering,

forestry and industrial. More advanced

learning is important to meet the proper

workplace assessments and meet health and

safety obligations.

If there are risks of falling, or medium to high

injury, then take careful look in the shortened

courses as these subjects may not be covered.

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure

that employees attend courses appropriate to

their industry risks.

Unit standard-based first aid training

The minimum duration of first aid training

and assessment will be for training based on:

• unit standards 6400, 6401

(or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551),

a minimum of 12 hours’ training and assessment

• unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or

26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training

and assessment

• For refresher training where the learner’s

certificate is no older than two years and three

months from date of issue, a minimum of six

hours’ training and assessment

First aid training must cover the outcomes

of the nZQA first aid unit standards being

assessed and any additional modules identified

by the employer through the workplace risk

assessment process as outlined in Department

of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training

providers accredited by nZQA can award the

credits and issue a first aid certificate.

nZQA conduct regular external evaluative

reviews on all training providers. new Zealand

red Cross is proud to hold a double highly

Confident accreditation in both educational

Performance and Capability in self-Assessment.

This means that nZ red Cross is a Category

One training provider.

First aid refresher training

refresher training is required every

two years to maintain the certificates.

The requirement allows for a

three-month period of grace, so the cut off

period is two years and three months, which

should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a

suitable course.

If a certificate is not renewed for more

than three calendar months from the second

anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for

the certificate holder to complete full first aid

training to maintain currency.

For the purposes of workplace first aid

emergency management, employers will need

to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain

competency at all times.

insurance quotes if required.

Maxine explains, Smart Repairs

specialises in small to medium repair

work – no job is too small – and their

aim is to offer personalised service

to make it easy for their customers,

who may be unsure what to do if their

vehicle gets damaged.

“We take pride in our work and

ensure that our customers are happy

with the results.

We also offer a pick-up and delivery

service if required.”
