PAPANUI WILL have a

new liquor outlet in spite of

opposition from businesses and

the local high school.

An application by B & S Liquor

Limited Reporting Agencies’ to

have a liquor store at 495 Papanui

Rd was granted at a hearing on

June 2 by a district licensing

committee.

Northgate Community

Services Trust, Papanui High

School, police and businesses

were listed as objectors to the

application but none appeared at

the hearing.

In the past, the company has

applied for a liquor licence for

a store in Stanmore Rd but was

turned down by the committee as

the area was unsuitable.

A number of businesses close

to the proposed shop said they

were angry with the idea of another

liquor store.

One local business owner, who

did not want to be named, said

she was concerned about littering.

“So I guess I will be picking up

those bottles from my carpark

each morning,” she said.

She was concerned also about

parking and its proximity to

Papanui High School.

“There are plenty of other

places to get alcohol, why do we

need another one?”

Northgate Community Services

Trust spokeswoman Karen

Watson said there were a lot of

youths in the area who did not

need another place to get alcohol.

“There are plenty of places to

get alcohol in the area. There are

supermarkets just down the road,

Super Liquor and wine bars up

and down the street,” she said.

Papanui High School Board of

Trustees deputy chairman Jerome

Williamson was unavailable for

comment. B & S Liquor could

not be reached for comment.

Alleyway a safety concern

• By Andrew King

DRUG DEALING, graffiti,

damage and rowdy nights have

forced a community board

to put $5000 into a Mairehau

walkway and bus stop to make it

safer for locals.

Residents near the walkway,

between Hills Rd and Onawe Pl,

have put up with ongoing drug

dealing, graffiti and damage

to their bus stop and walkway

fences and people trespassing on

their properties.

City councillor

Ali Jones (left)

organised a security

camera to be put in

for a few weeks to

illustrate how bad

the area is. However,

she said it was

quite a deterrent.

“We did notice reduced graffiti

and anti-social behaviour.

However, once the camera was

removed, there was more damage

to the fence,” she said.

The security camera was similar

to the one used on Manchester

St, St Albans to deter clients

visiting sex workers.

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board will allocate $5000

from its discretionary response

fund to enable a one-off upgrade

to the walkway, and to support a

neighbourhood art project.

The art project, led by the

residents, will improve the walkway

by covering graffiti on the

walkway fences.

The board has asked the

city council to give priority to

maintaining the bus stop near

the Hills Rd entrance to the

walkway to ensure that it is

safe and comfortable for users.

Lighting in the walkway and

outside the shopping precinct on

Hills Rd will undergo a safety

assessment.

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel said putting in the

camera has shown a reduction

in calls to the area.

“There have been less congregations

of people due to the

camera,” he said.

He said a community art

project would be a great idea

as it does deter people from

vandalism.

IMPROVEMENTS:

A walkway that

runs between

Hills Rd and

Onawe Pl will get

a $5000 upgrade

to fix damaged

fences, clean

up grafitti and

improve lighting.

PHOTO: GEOFF

SLOAN

Cr Jones said putting the camera

back was a possibility.

“We may always put the camera

back, of course. Or it may be

there already, but better hidden,”

she said.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Will a

$5000 improvement to the

walkway between Hills Rd

and Onawe Pl solve the

problem of drug dealing

and graffiti in the area?

In Brief

NO REIMBURSEMENT

St Francis of Assisi School

in St Albans will not be paid

back $150,000 of development

contributions it made when

it moved onto its new site

on Innes Rd. Development

contributions are fees paid

to compensate for the added

strain of new development on

infrastructure. City councillors

were tied seven to seven when

they voted on whether the

school should be reimbursed.

St Paul’s School in Dallington

and Our Lady of Fatima in

Edgeware were merged after the

February 22, 2011 earthquake

left St Paul’s unusable.

ROAD CHANGE

This week, southbound

traffic along Russley Rd will

be temporarily merged into

one lane. Two lanes will be

maintained for northbound

vehicles. This will allow the first

half of the southern airport

access underpass to be built.

This stage will take about 5-6

months to complete and then

northbound traffic will be

merged to complete the second

half of the underpass. For more

Bringing communities back to life

This week’s

Soapbox is

written by city

councillor and

Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board

member Raf

Manji about how

suburban plans can be brought

to life through a new arm of the

city council.

Post-earthquake, much of the focus

has been on the rebuilding of the central

city and the long-awaited anchor projects.

At the same time, many communities

have been asking for help and engagement

on the re-development of their

villages and suburban centres.

The city council has developed a number

of suburban master plans but has

limited ability to bring them to life, as

the areas often include private landowners

and developers.

This was one of the reasons the city

council set up a new entity called Development

Christchurch Limited. DCL has

responsibility for working with the community

and the private sector to bring

about better outcomes for local areas.

At the most basic level, this means

helping with the re-development of

local malls and village shops, using city

council-owned land to energise new

investment and allow local communities,

business associations and groups

to drive the changes they want to see in

their commercial neighbourhoods.

For example, this new approach could

provide a great opportunity for Bishopdale

Mall. As the city council owns the

land, it’s in a good position to work with

the community to enable the regeneration

of the public space, as well as the

upgrade of the current commercial

stock.

A recent example of community

input is the new Bishopdale Library and

community centre, which will shortly

get underway. The joint working group

process to prepare the plan illuminated

the new, inclusive approach from the

city council, which DCL will look to

build on.

Opportunities for local management

of the public space and the ability to redraw

the map of the building footprints

will help to make Bishopdale Mall an

even more attractive place for the local

community to visit and act as a core

driver of economic and social activity

for the north-west.

•Do you believe suburban plans

will be easier to complete with

the city council’s new entity,

Development Christchurch Ltd?

FLAME FILES

Empty houses

target of arson

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

WE’VE LOST a lot of old

buildings in the last five

years. Most of them from

earthquake damage.

However, we’ve also seen

a number of earthquake

damaged properties empty,

shored up and supposedly

secure, waiting to be

repaired, which have been

the target of arsonists.

There was another

one this week at the

Risingholme Community

Centre in Opawa.

I apologise to the good

people of that area, but I

wasn’t aware it existed.

The building may or

may not be saveable now. I

suspect it will not be.

But there will be another

empty section where the

history of our city once

stood. Kind of sad really,

isn’t it?

The last week has seen

a number of calls from

Linwood and Bromley areas

reporting strong smells of

gas.

It turns out a trucking

firm has been depositing

soil in their yard. Each time

it’s turned over, or added to,

a smell permeates around

the east. It’s not dangerous,

just unpleasant.

In the equally unusual

category was the call out

of the troops to a liquid

seeping from a closed

container in Middleton last

Friday.

Investigations revealed

the container had been

loaded in the heavy rain of

that week.

Was it rainwater seeping

out a number of days later?

Well, it’s not high in the list

of hazardous materials.

Finally someone in

Halswell tried to light their

fireplace with the help of

petrol on Monday. The

result was a lounge on

fire. This is not a rare

occurrence. One word if

you’re tempted – don’t.

Readers responds to

last week’s article about

lowering the speed limit

on sections of St Asaph

St and Hagley Ave as

well as 27 other roads in

the city.

Robert McGregor,

Harewood –

This speed limit is a joke.

Most cyclists I know will

be breaking the speed limit

most of the time.

Many average more than

35km/h as a rule.

Michael J Brathwaite,

Spreydon –

Regarding the proposed

speed limit changes, I am

totally against any changes to

the speed limits.

The only road that will

affect me is Waterloo Rd,

which I use one day a week.

Although I drive below

the 100km/h limit, unless

someone is following me, I

never strike any congestion

on the road.

It is a rural road, and it is

nice to be able to drive without

keeping an eye constantly

on the speedometer of my

car.

I work here,

I sell here’’

Burke in council race

• By Donna Miles

FAIMEH BURKE has

announced her candidacy in

the new Waimairi Ward for the

October local body elections.

Lady Burke, a long-time

community board member, is

standing for the city council.

She will not stand for the new

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board.

It will be Lady Burke’s fifth

attempt at winning a seat

around the city council table.

Lady Burke said she has had

discussions with two sitting

councillors, Raf Manji and

Jamie Gough, over which

ward they would stand in.

It is anticipated October’s

elections will be hotly contested

because of boundary

changes and the creation of

three more council seats.

Cr Raf Manji is expected

to announce his decision to

whether to stand by the beginning

of July.

“It’s a major commitment,

so not a decision I take

lightly,” he said.

Cr Gough said if Cr Manji

decided to run, the two would

work closely to ensure three

were elected for their joined

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

community board area.

“Raf and I obviously work

both closely and well together

so we are prudently taking a

holistic view of our ward,” he

said.

Cr Gough said his chances

of getting re-elected was

best in Fendalton Ward but

believed the work he had done

for the wider Fendalton-Waimairi

Ward made him electable

in any of the new wards.

Lady Burke said she was

buoyed by the fact she had a

good knowledge of the local

issues and a good support base

in the area.

In the recent six-yearly review

of council representation

the number of existing wards

were increased from seven to

16.

Each of the new 16 wards

will now be represented by one

councillor, increasing the total

number of councillors from

13 to 16.

The number of community

boards will be reduced from

eight to seven.

Overall, the number of

elected councillors and community

board members stays

the same the same at 54.

In Brief

News

Broadcasting to

beat loneliness

NOR’WEST NEWS

CTV News now

on Plains FM

AFRICAN MUSIC is as

varied as the many African

cultures it represents, and

although it’s rare to hear

these sounds on broadcast

media in Canterbury, a

young mother of two has

been doing just that for

the last two years through

a radio show called Voices

of Africa on Plains FM.

Regina Smedley is married

to a New Zealander

and is proud to call herself

a Cantabrian, but she was

born and raised in a small

village in Malawi.

Since 2008, she has been

living in Christchurch and

successfully straddling

two cultures by immersing

herself in the Kiwi lifestyle

while still staying connected

to her roots.

As is common with

many migrants, she has

also had to confront deep

feelings of isolation.

“There are very few Malawian

people in Christchurch.

So when you meet one

you immediately want to sit

down and have a long chat.”

The impetus to broadcast

Voices of Africa was born

out of her desire to overcome

feelings of loneliness.

Regina readily admits that

she struggled at times to

feel she belonged and

having a project to focus

on which was close to her

heart helped immensely.

“I had always wanted to

do broadcasting so when

I got this opportunity to

present my own show it

was a life’s dream come

true for me. In my village,

there were very few opportunities.

My kids couldn’t

believe it.”

The radio programme is

predominantly in English

and aims to help eliminate

cultural barriers, provide a

connection for the African

community to their roots,

and assist all migrants to

feel part of the Christchurch

community.

“I like to focus on

interviews with recent

migrants, or New Zealanders

who have themselves

been to Africa. It’s a great

way to share stories and

experiences with the

wider community. I get to

choose the African music

I want to play and it really

helps build my confidence

speaking English as well.”

As if raising a family,

running a cooking business

and producing a

radio show aren’t enough,

Regina also raises funds

for a children’s orphanage

in Malawi. She is hosting

a fundraising dinner at

Visions Restaurant at 7pm

on June 10 on behalf of the

charity Mphatikizo.

Voices of Africa airs on

Plains FM 96.9 on Fridays

at noon, repeats Saturdays

at 11pm, and is available to

download as a podcast at

www.plainsfm.org.nz and

on iTunes.

A COLLABORATION between two

local news broadcasters has started.

Plains FM began live broadcasting

the CTV evening news on June 7,

running each weekday from 5.30-

6pm.

Plains FM is a community-run

station based at the Ara Institute of

Canterbury, while CTV is locallyowned

by Star Media and has broadcast

regional news since 1991.

Plains FM manager Nicki Reece

said it was a great local collaboration.

“For us, it’s a natural fit, because

we’re firmly locally-based with

programmes by and for the

community, and this a further

reflection of what’s going on in a

visual way at CTV. So it’s a really

nice cross-pollination between two

local entities.”

Star Media editor-in-chief Barry

Clarke said the association with

Plains FM was another step for CTV

as it broadens its reach in the Canterbury

region.

Plains FM is broadcast on 96.9

FM, and is also live streamed at

www.plainsfm.org.nz. CTV News

can also be watched live or on

demand at www.ctv.co.nz

PARTNERSHIP: Plains FM will now broadcast

CTV News between 5.30 and 6pm

each weekday.

The $39 million bowel cancer screening

pilot announced in Budget 2016 will tick

the box for our residents. I receive a lot

of feedback that highlights the issue as

a major concern. With my background

in health, I endorse any programme that

will stop New Zealanders dying from

bowel cancer, which is a leading cause of

death. Early diagnosis will save lives.

I’m enjoying catching up with our over

65s at my Super Seniors coffee mornings.

It has been interesting to hear the range

of issues that have been brought forward.

Look out for your invitation coming to

Heritage buildings recognised

• By Andrew King

MONA VALE Lodge and

Acland House have been

recognised in this year’s

Canterbury Heritage Awards

final.

Acland House was commended

in the domestic saved

and restored category while

Mona Vale Lodge was highly

commended in the domestic

saved and restored category, and

public realm saved and restored

category.

The sold out award ceremony

saw 23 of the 80 entrants awarded

highly commended while

seven received commended.

Mona Vale Lodge, off Fendalton

Rd, is one of three domestic

buildings that form part of

Mona Vale. The lodge was damaged

in the February 22, 2011

earthquake.

2016 Canterbury Heritage Award winners:

RESTORED: Mona Vale Lodge was highly commended in

two categories. ​

It was the first to be fully

repaired, restored and in use

again. The judges said it was an

excellent example of a careful

conservation approach by the

city council that has not only

fully restored the building, but

has resulted in the restoration

of number of hidden original

features, such as pressed metal

ceilings.

It also included the reinstatement

of its detailed brick

chimneys and Marseille tiled

roof, ensuring that it retains its

landmark position as the southern

gateway to the Mona Vale

gardens.

Acland House was originally

built in 1893 and has been the

Christchurch Girls High School

boarding hostel since 1921.

It suffered significant damage

on February 22, 2011 and

reopened again in May 2015

after earthquake repairs, seismic

strengthening and refurbishment

had been undertaken.

Homes needed for

exchange students

AN EXCHANGE programme

is asking for Christchurch

families to open their doors to

international students.

Student Exchange Australia

New Zealand will be sending

high school-aged children to

Christchurch, from as close as

Australia to as far away as Brazil

and France.

The group is a not-for-profit

organisation.

This month, it will be receiving

students from Australia, Brazil,

Denmark, France, Finland, Germany,

Japan and Switzerland.

The new arrivals plan to live

with a host family and attend a

local school for three, five or 10

months.

Hosting an exchange student

allows local families to experience

a foreign culture first hand,

be exposed to a new language

and pass on parts of their own

culture.

All students have at least basic

levels of English, and would attend

a school in the local area.

Aboriginal student Jaydah is

looking forward to living in New

Zealand and is hoping to learn

about the Maori culture.

Denmark native Caroline, 16,

has been to New Zealand before

and loved it so much she now

wants to live here and experience

the culture as an exchange

student.

In her spare time, Caroline

works as a swimming instructor

and in a bakery.

Nathan, 16, is a French student

who enjoys school, tennis, handball

and skiing.

He loves hiking in nature and

is looking forward to discovering

New Zealand and meeting new

people.

But a host family isn’t only

doing the student a favour by

giving them a roof over their

head, as told by the Stuart family.

They hosted Danish student

Simon for eight months. Victoria

Stuart said the experience was

fantastic, and that Simon was

a role model to their younger

children.

Cobham Intermediate students put on their gumboots and

went insect hunting as part of a programme run by Lincoln

University. The Waterwatch course is run by the university

and gives years 7-13 students the chance to participate in

real ecological practices outside the classroom. Students

got involved in measuring a range of physical, chemical and

biological indicators of water quality. First they disturbed the

river bottom in order to catch sediment in their nets. They then

transferred the sediment to trays and examined the samples

up close to try and identify the insects that they found. They

then processed and interpreted data and information gathered

from the field trip to produce an assessment on the streams

health.

YOUNG SCIENTISTS: Cobham

Intermediate School students

look on as Hayley Clutterbuck

(holding net) takes samples to

analysis.

COLLECTING: Student Casey

Kereama (right) catches

sediment in a net to identify

insects and flora to determine

the stream’s health.

DISCOVERY TIME: Year 5 and 6 students at Wairakei School had no winter sport during

Queen’s Birthday Weekend so they filled their time with lego, smoothies, biscuit decoration

and outdoor games. Pupils could chose between construction with lego and large planks,

making fruit and vege smoothies, biscuit decoration, and outdoor games. Most pupils were

able to have a go at two activities.

St Andrew’s College was a wash with colour as it celebrated its international students with an

assembly recently. Every two years the school holds an assembly to showcase the diversity

it has on its campus. Students dress up in clothes native to their homelands and bring in their

national flag to show others their heritage. They were welcomed into the school hall by a Takumi

drum group and entertained by a group visiting from Ecole School in Dehradun, India. School

head of values and culture Hamish Bell said it is fantastic to see students representing their

homeland. “The whole school was involved which makes it quite a special event,” he said.

SCHOOL PRIDE: Director of

international and exchange

students Pale Tauti walks the

New Zealand flag into the

international assembly.

DIVERSE: St Andrew’s College showcases just some of the

nationalities that go to the school.

HAROLD’S BACK: The Life Education bus visited Wairakei

School’s juniors for two days last week. All junior pupils had

the opportunity to visit the bus to learn about friendship,

digital citizenship, respect for each other and finding out

about being bucket fillers by making people feel happy and

bucket dippers by making people feel sad or unhappy.

Our People

When the world is your stage

Ailis Oliver-Kerby, 21, is fast on track to

becoming a professional performer after

being accepted into performing arts schools

in London, New York and Australia. She spoke

to Georgia O’Connor-Harding about living all

around the world while growing up, her love

of the arts and being related to broadcaster

Bernadine Oliver-Kerby.

Great speaking to you. How

are you finding performing in

Showbiz Christchurch’s Hairspray

so far?

I have been absolutely loving

it. It has just been such a positive

experience and to have audiences

at last is so different. Having the

laughs is more fun. I’m playing

Penny Pingleton. She is such

a lovable character with great

one-liners. Hairspray is one of

my favourite shows and Penny

is one of my ultimate roles. I

did Hairspray in the

United Kingdom but I

always wanted to play

Penny. When I came

to Dunedin I got that,

which is cool, and

now I have it again,

which is special.

You’ve been all

around the world.

Tell me about the

places you’ve lived

in?

It’s always a hard

question when

someone asks where I am from

because it is quite a long story. I

was born in Auckland and then

lived in Christchurch as a primary

school kid. My family moved

to England for a couple of years

before my teenage years. It was

back and forth from England to

here. Then, when I was about 12,

we moved to Hong Kong because

my Dad worked as a pilot with

a Hong Kong airline – Cathay

Pacific. It was getting really hard

for the family to be so split up all

the time. Dad was always flying

so we all moved there together.

What was growing up in

Hong Kong like?

CENTRE STAGE: Ailis Oliver-Kerby playing the role of Liesl in

the Sound of Music with Taieri Musical Society last year.

It was such an amazing adventure.

We were there for seven

years and there was a great theatre

scene in Hong Kong as well.

The dance is competitive there.

I worked hard with my singing

and dancing at the international

Island School. I met lots of British,

American and Australian

teachers. It is really different in

the middle of the city. So cultural.

I feel home there now but I

can see why people would have a

cultural shock.

And then you went

to the United Kingdom

to study?

I was 16 and I

heard about a musical

theatre course in the

United Kingdom. It

was a pre-tertiary

musical theatre

course at Tring Park

School for Performing

Arts. I just

wanted to be somewhere

I could do this

full-time.

What drew you back to New

Zealand?

It felt like I needed to get back

to my roots. I liked the look of

Otago University – I had lots

of old friends going there. The

main building is kind of like

Hogwarts.

What’s the most valuable

thing you’ve picked up from

studying the performing arts?

I think the hardest thing about

this industry is all the set backs.

And you have to believe in yourself.

If you don’t believe in yourself

no one else will. I recently

did the Christchurch International

Musical Theatre Summer

School and Andrea Burns,

who is on Broadway in On Your

Feet! at the moment, said to us:

“If you’re ready, you never have

to get ready”. It is all about being

prepared. And you have to

be prepared for every audition.

Preparation is the one thing that

can help you. You have got to appreciate

the good moments and

not let the bad moments suck it

out of you.

And is it your dream to be on

West End with all your achievements?

After getting accepted into the

Royal Central School of Speech

and Drama in London, Stella

Adler Studio of Acting in New

York and Making it On Broadway

in Sydney, it is my dream to

work in West End productions.

I most recently came second in

the International Monologue

Competition where I was lucky

enough to receive more than

2000 votes.

What an incredible variety

of places to choose from.

Have you thought about

what option you will take

up?

I do think London is where I

want to be. I have worked there

before and have contacts. I also

just found out I got into Legally

Blonde at the Court Theatre. I

haven’t confirmed anything yet.

I am trying to defer my place

in London so I can do the show

here and go the following year.

Everything is still in limbo at the

moment.

Tell me a bit more about your

family. Your dad is a pilot, what

do the others do?

My Mum studied psychology

and she is a career coach. She

is also a business owner. She

does psychology assessments.

She helps me with my CV. My

brother Lachie is very talented.

He has just released his album

on SoundCloud called The

Reach. His music is alternative

rap and he creates his own beats.

My brother is also a massive

rugby player at school. When he

was at Christ’s College he was in

the first XV for rugby. He is very

talented.

What’s it like being related to

Bernadine Oliver-Kerby?

She is an amazing aunty. She

is always there for me. I’ve been

to Auckland quite a lot with my

auditions and agency, Auckland

Actors Ltd. She always drives me

around and would do anything

for us. She enjoys watching

shows. She came and watched

my brother in his school production

of Cats and she came to see

me in the Sound of Music with

the Taieri Musical Society last

year. She has an amazing voice

as well. Not sure if she sings a lot

anymore. It is her little secret.

She was in musicals at school.

You are so busy with your

performing. What do you

always make time for and value

the most?

I value my time with my family.

I take my studies seriously. I

loved doing my degree, reading

and performing. I am lucky to

have friends all over the world

now which I value greatly.

Vegetarian chef in final

A CLEARWATER chef’s first

entry in a cooking competition

has made the finals of the

New Zealand Vegetarian Dish

Challenge.

Peppers Clearwater Resort

Lakes Restaurant’s senior chef

de partie Drew Weeda’s entry,

Out of this Earth, has earned

her a New Zealand Vegetarian

Dish Challenge Excellence

Award plaque.

Chefs are

challenged

to create

delicious and

inspired meals

from one

of the three

categories of

breakfast or

brunch, lunch

and dinner or

fine dining.

Ms Weeda’s

said she

wanted to create

a dish that would showcase

some of their wonderfully

versatile root vegetables.

“I teamed up baby turnips

and beetroot with goat cheese

balls and dehydrated kale. The

cubed tofu was dusted with

beetroot powder, which

provided a lovely delicate

flavour, and gently fried then

topped with a raspberry reduction,”

she said.

This is not only her first

entry into the challenge but

her first time entering any

cooking competition and

she is delighted to have her

creative talents recognised.

“I grew up with a vegetarian

sister and a chef for a dad, so

I have spent many years not

only eating vegetarian food

but preparing it,”

she said.

The winners of

the three categories,

announced in

July, will each be

awarded a winner’s

plate.

Competition

organiser and food

services consultant

Pip Duncan said as

plant based diets

continue to grow

in popularity, chefs

need to provide

a greater range of choice of

vegetable dishes.

“Chefs are being called upon

to create imaginative and tasty

vegetable dishes,” he said.

Moascar Cup

up for grabs

• By Gordon Findlater

ST ANDREW’S College will

look to retain the Moascar Cup

when they host Timaru Boys’

High School today.

The cup is the schoolboy rugby

equivalent of the Ranfurly

Shield with its history going

back to World War I.

Mounted on a piece of a

wooden propeller from a German

aircraft shot down in

Palestine, the trophy was first

played for between British, New

Zealand and Australian troops

camped in Moascar, Egypt, following

the war.

Bought into the country by

the New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Unit and Depot which

had won the cup, it was gifted to

New Zealand Rugby Union on

the condition it be a challenger

trophy for secondary schools.

Over 100 years on, the Moascar

Cup is now one of the most

coveted prizes in New Zealand

schoolboy rugby.

STAC claimed the trophy

from Wellington’s Scots College

late last year becoming just the

third Christchurch school to

do so, along with Christchurch

Boys’ High School and St Bede’s

College.

Today, Timaru get a crack

at the silverware and there’s

no reason they won’t back

themselves to go back to South

Canterbury with an another

addition to the trophy case,

winning four of their six games

to start the UC Championship.

Kick-off is at 1pm.

ON THE LINE: St Andrew’s

College lock George Murfin

proudly shows the Moascar

Cup.

READY TO GO: Sports broadcaster and former New Zealand double international representative

in cricket and hockey Lesley Murdoch opens the new turf at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School. ​

Rangi Ruru’s new turf

• By Gordon Findlater

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

has welcomed a new artificial

hockey turf.

Current Black Sticks Gemma

Flynn, Jordan Grant and Rachel

McCann attended the opening,

watching on as current national

champions, the first XI Rangi

Ruru hockey team, had their

first official practice on the new

surface.

The turf cost just over $1m

and is included in stage two of

the Project Blue Sky Rangi Ruru

campus redevelopment which

began in 2012.

Sports broadcaster and

former New Zealand double

international representative

in cricket and hockey, Lesley

Murdoch ONZM, MBE, was

also present, cutting the ribbon

on the world class facility which

she knows will prove pivotal

in the growth of hockey in the

region.

“It’s massive. It just takes the

pressure off those existing turfs

to get people on.” Murdoch said.

She also believes Canterbury

Hockey have done an amazing

job to stay competitive following

the Christchurch earthquakes,

especially at secondary

school level.

Last September Rangi Ruru

claimed the Federation Cup, the

highest honour in secondary

school girl’s hockey.

Christchurch club HSOB/

Burnside will use the hockey

turf for training.

Canterbury Hockey will also

use the facilities for weekend

junior hockey and representative

training.

GREAT EFFORT: Five north-west students have put in a solid

showing at the Australian Gymnastics Championships in

Melbourne recently. After long hours training and building

strength, (back L to R) Anna Hooker, 14, Isabelle Ralston, 14,

Emma Logan, 14, (front L to R) Abby Field, 14, coach Alesha

Berry and Catherine Hooker, 17, all made the trip across

the ditch to compete. In the level seven competitions, Anna

Hooker placed second in hoop, Logan placed third in clubs,

Field placed fourth in ribbon. Together with Renee Macrae

from Nelson, the New Zealand team placed second overall in

level seven. All five girls train between 10-14 hours per week

at Breens Intermediate. In the level nine competition, Ralston

placed 15th overall while Catherine Hooker came 14th overall

in the level 10 competition.

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

student Una Foyle is off to

Auckland to trial for New

Zealand’s FIFA under-20

women’s World Cup football

team that will play in Papua

New Guinea in November.

Foyle, 17, plays in the goalkeeper

position, and is one of

only two Christchurch members

in the current under-20

squad.

“There’s one other young

Christchurch woman in the

team and she’s 19 so a bit older

than me. I live and breathe

football and am really focused

on getting into the World Cup

team,” Foyle said.

She has been playing since

she was an 8-year-old, and currently

plays for Coastal Spirit in

their premier women’s team.

The young footballer can

also look ahead to the 2018

Under-20 World Cup following

this one.

“After this campaign, I’ll be

training hard for selection for

the next Under-20 World Cup

in 2018, as I will still be eligible,”

she said.

Rangi Ruru’s director of sport

Jo Fogarty said Foyle is an exceptional

talent and shows what

can be achieved with focus and

hard work.

Foyle is in Auckland from

June 10-20 during which time

the under-20 squad will play the

an under-19 Untied States team

Ensuring a safe work place

LEARNINg fIRST aid is not only a part

of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to the

sports field?

Not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from

a regular ambulance service. It is therefore

essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both

professional

and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial

injuries, or the ability to perform effective

CPR. These skills can be achieved on a

course of eight hours duration and would

generally fit into low to medium risk area.

But take this same person on to a sports field

either as a spectator or player when a higher

level injury occurs. The eight hour course

covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or

26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck

and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia

and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

NOR’WEST NEWS

New Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result of

motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home.

fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

If you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options that

will best suit your needs. Look beyond the

workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Be health smart

this winter

HaNDS arE the main pathways of germ

transmission. Hand hygiene is therefore

the most important measure to avoid the

transmission of harmful germs.

Wash your hands, before & after food

preparation and eating, if you borrow

someone elses equipment and of course

after blowing your nose. For convienience

it is a good idea to have hand sanitiser on

hand to use in between washing.

Sneezing & coughing into the crook

of your arm or tissues rather than your

hand, reduces the spread of airborne

bugs. remove tissues to the rubbish

immediately.

Keep hydrated, two thirds of your body

is made of water, so keeping hydrated

is one of the most important things you

can do for your health. Dehydration

symptoms range from headaches to

nausea to fatigue, but the effects of

dehydration on your immune system are

not always as obvious. Staying hydrated

keeps the mucus membranes moist, which

keeps the immune system functioning

optimally. Unfortunately, lattes and wine

don’t count, but upping your intake of

water is incredibly beneficial. aim to

drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

You’ll notice the difference!

Eat in season, poor nutrition impairs

the immune response. Fresh vegetables,

fruits, nuts, grains and legumes or pulses

are full of immune-boosting properties

and antioxidants. Nature provides fresh

seasonal foods to compensate for what

our bodies are lacking at that time of

year. Kiwifruit & citrus fruits that are in

season throughout winter are packed with

Vitamin C.

Stress less, although short periods of

stress can actually be good for us longterm

chronic stress lowers our immunity,

making us more susceptible to colds and

flu. We all have our own ways of coping

and reducing stress so whether it’s taking

a bath, going to the gym, getting outdoors

in the garden or having fun with the kids,

do something to unwind. Not only are

you doing your adrenal glands a favour,

you’re also reducing your chances of being

struck down by the latest virus.

Get a good night’s sleep, sleep is

essential for your body to rest, repair and

rejuvenate. (Don’t you find you always

tend to look your best after a good night’s

sleep?) The human growth hormone

that’s released during sleep helps repair

your body at a cellular level, but it’s

also beneficial for the immune system.

Interrupted sleep (or just not enough of

it) significantly reduces the effectiveness

of your immune system, particularly the

natural killer cells, which is your body’s

first line of defence against germs.
