Best mate labelled a<br />

hero after explosion<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

DANIEL ROBERTS owes<br />

his life to his best mate who<br />

threw himself on top of him to<br />

smother the flames he had been<br />

engulfed by.<br />

Mr Roberts of Ilam suffered<br />

horrendous burns to his hands,<br />

face and body after a butane<br />

container was ignited by a<br />

nearby heater and exploded on<br />

<strong>June</strong> 7 at about 10pm.<br />

He has been in an induced<br />

coma in Christchurch Hospital<br />

for the last 10 days and had to<br />

undergo an eight-hour surgery<br />

on Friday to graft skin onto his<br />

hands and part of his back.<br />

His wife Nadia Roberts said<br />

if it had not been for his best<br />

mate, James, he would have<br />

died.<br />

“He just saw his best friend<br />

screaming in pain so he jumped<br />

on top of him and tried to put<br />

the flames out. He didn’t even<br />

think about his own safety, he<br />

just tried to save his mate,” Mrs<br />

Roberts said.<br />

James also suffered burns to<br />

his hands but it was Mr Roberts<br />

who took most of the blast.<br />

She has labelled him a hero,<br />

one of many that came to her<br />

aid on that night but also in the<br />

following days.<br />

“The neighbours came over<br />

and just said we will take the<br />

kids you just take care of what<br />

needs to be done over here,” she<br />

said.<br />

The couple have two children,<br />

a nine-year-old and a two-yearold<br />

and Mrs Roberts said it has<br />

been hard for both of them.<br />

“My two-year-old wakes up<br />

at night crying for her daddy.<br />

She now comforts herself by<br />

cuddling his pillow at night,”<br />

she said.<br />

On Friday the shed was being<br />

pulled down because of<br />

memories it brought back for<br />

the family.<br />

“I just want it gone,” Mrs<br />

Roberts said.<br />

She said without the love and<br />

support from her family and the<br />

surrounding community things<br />

would be looking much worse.<br />

“I have to give a huge amount<br />

of thanks to the emergency services,<br />

the doctors, the local kindergarten<br />

and my neighbours<br />

who have helped out. It makes it<br />

a little easier,” she said.<br />

GRATEFUL: Nadia Roberts and her two children are praising the quick actions of her<br />

husband’s best mate saying he has probably saved his life. Inset: The shed after the explosion.<br />

IT IS a sad fact that bullying is<br />

not only prevalent in schools, but<br />

in many other facets of life. Vicki<br />

Edwards-Brown is the driving<br />

force behind Be The Change,<br />

an anti-bullying programme<br />

that started after she saw a lack<br />

of empathy for those subjected<br />

to schoolyard harassment. The<br />

actress and singer talks about not<br />

only the programme but her stint<br />

on Shortland Street on page 8.<br />

On page 10, reporter Donna<br />

Miles talks to the Canterbury<br />

Muslim Community Trust.<br />

Though they do not suffer the<br />

same levels of “islamophobia”<br />

compared to the rest of the world,<br />

there is still a way to go in understanding<br />

the different cultures<br />

of the 40 ethnic groups that<br />

represent the Muslim community<br />

in the city.<br />

Mall parks needed<br />

• By Tania Green and Andrew<br />

King<br />

CARPARKING ISSUES at<br />

Northlands Shopping Centre<br />

are forcing vehicles out to<br />

suburbans streets, creating a<br />

nuisance for residents.<br />

Residents say that malls are<br />

not providing enough car parks<br />

for their employees and shoppers,<br />

with nearby streets taking<br />

the load. That means narrower<br />

streets, and not enough room<br />

for visitors to park.<br />

Papanui resident Kathleen<br />

Crisley (left) said<br />

it was particularly<br />

bad around<br />

peak time, such<br />

as holidays, with<br />

mall staff trying<br />

to find a spare<br />

space.<br />

“Easter and<br />

Christmas are times when our<br />

whole street will be full with<br />

cars. Some of them are more<br />

considerate than others when<br />

it comes to parking near driveways,”<br />

she said.<br />

But Northlands marketing<br />

manager Rebecca Sheppard<br />

said she was not aware of parking<br />

being an issue, nor has it<br />

received any complaints from<br />

surrounding residents.<br />

PARKING PROBLEMS: Residents say that malls are not providing enough car parks for their<br />

employees and shoppers meaning nearby streets are taking the load.<br />

“Northlands provides over<br />

1700 car parks for our customers<br />

and designated parking<br />

for our retail staff and the city<br />

council have ‘time limit’ parking<br />

in most of the residential<br />

areas in close proximity to the<br />

mall,” she said.<br />

Shirley-Papanui Community<br />

Board chairman Mike Davidson<br />

said the problem stems<br />

from the consenting process.<br />

“Pressure needs to be put on<br />

developers to consider the employees<br />

that will need to get to<br />

their place of employment and<br />

the surrounding residents who<br />

are living nearby,” he said.<br />

He said getting people into<br />

these commercial areas without<br />

the use of a car is key.<br />

“We need to be looking at<br />

better public transportation,”<br />

he said.<br />

City councillor Paul Lonsdale<br />

said malls are not supplying<br />

enough car parks for their<br />

employees.<br />

“We are seeing the spill over<br />

into residential areas,” he said.<br />

In Brief<br />

MAN REUNITED WITH BAG<br />

A man has been reunited with a bag<br />

he left at a Papanui bus stop on May<br />

30. It was taken to the Papanui Police<br />

Station. They asked the Nor’West<br />

<strong>News</strong> if it could run a picture of the<br />

man to get his possessions back to<br />

him.<br />

WHOOPING COUGH<br />

OUTBREAK<br />

A warning has gone out to parents<br />

at Paparoa Street School after an outbreak<br />

of whooping cough. Six cases<br />

were reported last week, prompting<br />

an email from principal Philip Harding<br />

to parents urging them to ensure<br />

children were up to date with their<br />

immunisations, and teach children<br />

to cover coughs and wash and dry<br />

their hands. To date, no other schools<br />

have been affected.<br />

WHEELIE BIN STOCKTAKE<br />

Kerbside wheelie bins throughout<br />

the city will be fitted with radio<br />

frequency tags as part of a stocktake<br />

starting next month. The stocktake<br />

is designed to save $9.3m on the cost<br />

of the bin collection service over<br />

the next 13 years by removing lost,<br />

damaged and stolen bins from circulation.<br />

Radio frequency tag’s will be<br />

installed to ensure bins that are damaged,<br />

stolen or found on other properties<br />

can be easily identified. The<br />

short range radio frequency chips<br />

will communicate with the collection<br />

truck as it goes past to ensure that<br />

the bin is located near the correct<br />

property. It will take approximately<br />

three years to complete.

Shirley-Papanui<br />

Community<br />

Board member<br />

Jo Byrne talks<br />

about having<br />

“wheelchairfriendly<br />

surfaces”<br />

in childrens’<br />

playgrounds, so all children<br />

have the chance to play.<br />

Many people know of my interest<br />

in flooding issues in the Flockton<br />

area.<br />

However, many people don’t<br />

realise that, as a part time speech<br />

language therapist working with<br />

children and young people with<br />

disabilities, I have also been actively<br />

advocating for more inclusive<br />

facilities in our ward.<br />

The therapy team I work with<br />

made an in-depth submission to<br />

the Margaret Mahy family playground<br />

team on making that play<br />

area safe and accessible for people<br />

with disabilities.<br />

Overseas, many major cities are<br />

developing all access play areas.<br />

These are destination play areas<br />

where children of all abilities can<br />

play on the equipment.<br />

This means children with disabilities<br />

can play alongside their<br />

siblings and friends. Children can<br />

be side-by-side using different<br />

swings, including basket swings<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Wheelchair-friendly fun<br />

A reader responds to last week’s article about<br />

lowering the speed limit on sections of St Asaph St<br />

and Hagley Ave, as well as 27 other roads in the city.<br />

and platform swings.<br />

Children using wheelchairs are<br />

then not isolated in the wheelchair<br />

swing in the corner of a park.<br />

Internationally there are now<br />

play equipment manufacturers<br />

which specialise in accessible play<br />

grounds.<br />

In Auckland an all abilities playground<br />

has opened in Long Bay.<br />

The Shirley-Papanui Community<br />

Board has been working for more<br />

accessible play areas in our ward,<br />

too.<br />

Locally, it is fantastic to see the<br />

Smile Dial Sensory Garden development<br />

plans in Burwood.<br />

As playgrounds in the ward have<br />

come up for renewal, we have supported<br />

city council staff in coming<br />

up with play solutions that work for<br />

as many children as possible (while<br />

operating within the proposed<br />

budget).<br />

This means we have chosen more<br />

wheelchair friendly surfaces, and<br />

equipment that has more options<br />

for less physically able children.<br />

Work has started in the Craighead<br />

Reserve play area, and is<br />

planned for the new The Groynes<br />

play area.<br />

The community board would<br />

love a future Christchurch that<br />

has play equipment across the city<br />

for all our young people, so they<br />

can play safely in their own community<br />

and have the most suitable<br />

resources available.<br />

Another project the community<br />

board has had input into is the<br />

working party for the design of the<br />

new St Albans Community Centre.<br />

The plans for the proposed centre<br />

include an adult change bed, and<br />

hopefully will also include a ceiling<br />

hoist.<br />

This means that adults with disabilities<br />

who are unable to use the<br />

usual disability toilet facilities can<br />

still access their community and<br />

not have to go home when they<br />

need changing.<br />

This would open the community<br />

facility for use for a wider range of<br />

community groups.<br />

We all hope that when we look<br />

at the future Christchurch that it is<br />

truly accessible.<br />

agree with Jo Byrne? What<br />

parks can you think of that<br />

E Scott, Fendalton –<br />

I simply cannot believe<br />

this is even being considered.<br />

I absolutely oppose this<br />

idea. The city is difficult<br />

enough to negotiate without<br />

this. One cannot watch the<br />

road and speedometer at the<br />

same time. Having seen the<br />

article showing traffic personnel<br />

with a speed camera<br />

proves, without a doubt, it is<br />

a money making move on the<br />

city council’s part. Why can’t<br />

pedestrians and cyclists take<br />

FLAME FILES<br />

TWO PROPERTY fires, with<br />

all the drama and heartache<br />

they entail, occurred this<br />

week – the result of very<br />

topical causes reflecting the<br />

start of winter.<br />

In the early hours of last<br />

Sunday, a household in Parklands<br />

was alerted by smoke<br />

alarms to the fact the house<br />

was on fire.<br />

That there were operating<br />

smoke detectors saved a possible<br />

tragedy, but the cause<br />

may have been avoidable.<br />

The origin of the fire was<br />

traced to a clothes dryer that<br />

responsibility for themselves<br />

when moving around the<br />

city. Already I avoid the<br />

areas reduced to 30km/h,<br />

so businesses will notice a<br />

marked difference. All my<br />

work colleagues are doing the<br />

same. We have just returned<br />

from a <strong>21</strong>-day cruise in<br />

Europe. For everyone who<br />

asked where we came from,<br />

my stock answer is “the city<br />

from hell, called Christchurch”.<br />

This absolutely endorses<br />

that.<br />

Winter fire tips<br />

had been started before the<br />

occupants went to bed.<br />

There’s two points here.<br />

Firstly, it isn’t known<br />

whether the lint filter had<br />

been cleared recently.<br />

If it hadn’t, and this should<br />

be done every time the drier<br />

is used, it is possible the contents<br />

just got hotter and hotter<br />

to ignition temperature.<br />

Secondly, the use of these<br />

things should probably be<br />

restricted to when you’re at<br />

home, up and alert. Then you<br />

can deal with problems immediately<br />

as they occur.<br />

Cyclists may get discount<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

A PROPOSED plan to provide<br />

users of Jellie Park Recreation<br />

and Sports Centre with<br />

incentives to leave the car at<br />

home is gathering momentum.<br />

The Fendalton-Waimairi<br />

Community Board wants those<br />

who walk, bike or use public<br />

transport to access the facility,<br />

instead of using a car, to be<br />

rewarded.<br />

The details will be hammered<br />

out by a working party, which<br />

will be formed within weeks to<br />

get as many different groups and<br />

Jellie Park users around the table<br />

to hear their ideas.<br />

Deputy chairman David<br />

Cartwright said it is an exciting<br />

project.<br />

“We want all the ideas, no idea<br />

is a bad idea,” he said.<br />

One idea is for bike users, who<br />

present their helmet to staff, to<br />

receive a discount to use the<br />

facilities.<br />

“There will be those out there<br />

that say it will be taken advantage<br />

of by people driving to the<br />

centre and taking a helmet with<br />

them. Those people are just sad<br />

and we can’t ruin what could be<br />

a good idea because of that,” he<br />

said.<br />

LESS CARS: The Fendalton-Waimairi Community Board wants to reward people who use other<br />

means to get to Jellie Park.<br />

Spokes Canterbury chairman<br />

Don Babe said he applauds the<br />

idea.<br />

“I have always thought it was<br />

a weird thing that people would<br />

hop in their car and drive a long<br />

distance to exercise. Why not<br />

bike or walk instead. This would<br />

encourage that,” he said.<br />

Once all the ideas have been<br />

gathered up by the working<br />

party it will make a recommendation<br />

to the city council, which<br />

will have the final say on the<br />

proposal.<br />

That is expected to happen in<br />

November.<br />

“This will not only go a long<br />

way to solve the parking problems<br />

that sometimes arise at<br />

Jellie Park, but it has huge health<br />

benefits as well,” Mr Cartwright<br />

said.<br />

HAVE YOUR SAY: Would<br />

you use public transport or<br />

bike to Jellie Park if you received<br />

discounts to use the<br />

facility? Share your views<br />

New men’s<br />

club home<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

THE BISHOPDALE Menzshed<br />

hit two milestones last week –<br />

they found a new home and they<br />

now have 50 members.<br />

The group has been based out<br />

of two containers and an enclosed<br />

courtyard at the Bishopdale Mall<br />

after moving out of the Bishopdale<br />

Community Creche.<br />

They had to move to make<br />

room for the new community<br />

centre and library.<br />

Now they will build community<br />

projects and give those with surplus<br />

skills a place to ply their trade<br />

in the old scout den on Kendal<br />

Ave.<br />

Menzshed facilitator Bill Greenwood<br />

said it is fantastic news for<br />

the group.<br />

“The old scout den will be fitted<br />

out over the next few weeks to get<br />

it ready for the boys,” he said.<br />

He also was thrilled to hit the<br />

50-member mark.<br />

“It’s great isn’t it? We will be<br />

able to do quite a bit of good in<br />

the community and have a widerange<br />

of skills,” he said.<br />

The group started about two<br />

years ago with five members looking<br />

to help out their community.<br />

It boosts a healthy mix of ages,<br />

with members ranging from 18-<br />

TWO Christchurch Girls’ High<br />

School students had the luxury<br />

of knowing they would win a<br />

regional cooking competition<br />

even before competing.<br />

Year 13 students Bridget James<br />

and Emily Perkins were the only<br />

entrants in the Canterbury section<br />

of the National Secondary Schools<br />

Culinary Challenge, held at Ara<br />

Institute of Canterbury last week.<br />

This meant they only had to<br />

show up to gain entry to the<br />

national final in Auckland on<br />

August 30.<br />

The competition was meant to<br />

involve several teams of year 12 or<br />

13 culinary students going headto-head<br />

in a live kitchen cook-off<br />

to produce four portions of entrée<br />

and main meals in 90 minutes.<br />

Instead the girls were effectively<br />

able to use it as a practice run for<br />

the national final and a chance to<br />

hear judges’ feedback.<br />

James said the pair had been<br />

happy with how they went.<br />

“No other teams were around<br />

to stress us out, but I think we did<br />

pretty well.”<br />

Regional head judge Glenn<br />

Fulcher said it was very unusual to<br />

only have one team in a regional<br />

GOING IT ALONE: Christchurch Girls’ High School students Bridget<br />

James and Emily Perkins were the only entrants in a regional<br />

cooking competition.<br />

final.<br />

“We probably get on average<br />

about four to six teams per region.”<br />

As regional winners, James and<br />

Perkins earned a $500 Bidvest<br />

voucher, a chef’s jacket for the<br />

final, a $200 Southern Hospitality<br />

voucher and travel assistance to<br />

get to the final.<br />

Our People<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

Former Shortland Street actor<br />

Vicki Edwards-Brown started the charity Be The<br />

Change in 2011 to tackle the problem of bullying and<br />

help support victims. She spoke to reporter Tom<br />

Doudney about what inspired her to set the charity<br />

up, her role on Shortland Street and the freak spinal<br />

injury she suffered.<br />

I heard that you were actually<br />

bullied as an adult, is that<br />

right? What role did that play<br />

in starting Be The Change?<br />

Yes, I was but it’s not the driving<br />

force behind why I started<br />

Be The Change. That driving<br />

force was to do with my husband<br />

working in a high school, seeing<br />

the effect that bullying was having<br />

on young people around me,<br />

and just really having a desperate<br />

need to help them and massive<br />

empathy for them. I was thinking<br />

‘that’s hard enough’, and<br />

then you have the earthquakes<br />

to deal with as well, and we need<br />

something in New Zealand to<br />

empower young people to stand<br />

up to bullying.<br />

Yeah, I was bullied in the<br />

workplace but I didn’t know it at<br />

the time, so I guess it would have<br />

been good to have tools and tips<br />

to know that, actually, that’s not<br />

okay.<br />

Can you tell me more about<br />

your background before<br />

starting Be The Change?<br />

My background is really in<br />

the speaking side of it. When I<br />

do the workshops and presentations,<br />

that comes from an acting<br />

background that I have. I have<br />

been on Shortland Street and<br />

other things when I was younger,<br />

so that has drawn me to being<br />

able to present to young people<br />

and fit in.<br />

When were you on Shortland<br />

Street?<br />

I was on in 2010. My husband<br />

[Shaun Edwards-Brown] was actually<br />

on for a whole year during<br />

2009 and 2010 as well. He was a<br />

pivotal character and I got a twomonth<br />

contract as well, which<br />

was really awesome.<br />

What character did you play?<br />

Her name was Jewel Fitzpatrick.<br />

TAKING A STAND: Vicki Edwards-Brown started Be The<br />

Change, a charity that aims to tackle bullying. ​<br />

She was actually an actress. I<br />

was acting, playing an actress.<br />

Who did your husband play<br />

on Shortland Street?<br />

He was Ben Goodall – a paramedic.<br />

How did your tenure end<br />

at Shortland Street? Did your<br />

character get killed off or anything<br />

like that?<br />

No, some main characters did<br />

a play and I was in that play, so<br />

the play just ran its course and<br />

that was it.<br />

Did being on Shortland Street<br />

open up any more doors for you<br />

in terms of acting?<br />

Yeah, we lived in Auckland<br />

for six months and did some<br />

ads and things like that. Then<br />

we came back to Christchurch.<br />

I had major back surgery and<br />

then, being stuck in bed for six<br />

weeks while watching TV, I saw<br />

something which inspired me to<br />

create Be The Change.<br />

What was it you saw on TV?<br />

It was a programme about<br />

a bully prevention charity in<br />

America called Challenge Day<br />

and I saw that and just thought<br />

‘wow, that is really awesome’<br />

and it just inspired me to do<br />

something because we needed<br />

something like that in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

You mentioned being in some<br />

ads, what might we recognise<br />

you from?<br />

They’re pretty old now –<br />

Vector’s fibre to the door was<br />

one. I was just like standing at<br />

a sink turning the tap on and<br />

trying to get water through a<br />

straw.<br />

takes a stand against bullying<br />

But predominately I used to<br />

sing – I’d sing at Twiggers, at<br />

Addington Raceway. We used to<br />

sing every Friday and Saturday<br />

with the band. So a lot of my<br />

performing was theatrical with<br />

singing in a band and stuff like<br />

that. I had my own band called<br />

V.I.P. I have also done about 20<br />

shows through Showbiz over the<br />

years.<br />

What sort of music did you<br />

sing with your band?<br />

I love 80s. Anything from the<br />

60s right through. It was all Top<br />

of the Pops stuff that people like<br />

to hear.<br />

So, have you stopped playing<br />

with bands now?<br />

I do stuff with a group called<br />

Chant et Danse, a Christchurch<br />

entertainment group.<br />

You also mentioned that you<br />

had major back surgery, what<br />

happened there?<br />

It was a really freak accident.<br />

Eleven years ago, we were driving<br />

down Moorhouse Ave and<br />

there were high winds and a<br />

three-storey high tree broke off<br />

in the wind just as we drove past<br />

and the tree came through the<br />

roof on to my head.<br />

Oh my gosh!<br />

I’m laughing now but it wasn’t<br />

ON SCREEN: Vicki Edwards-Brown played the role of actor Jewel Fitzpatrick on the long running soap opera, Shortland Street.<br />

good at the time, and it literally<br />

broke my back. I had two spinal<br />

surgeries so I have got a titanium<br />

back.<br />

Do you feel good as new now?<br />

No, I have chronic back pain<br />

but I have just learned to live<br />

with it and do the best I can<br />

through exercise and being<br />

healthy and that sort of thing,<br />

and having a positive attitude<br />

about everything – everything. If<br />

you can think of something to be<br />

grateful for in life, and literally I<br />

think helping other people helps<br />

me. If I can lie in bed at night<br />

saying I have helped one person,<br />

that makes me happy.<br />

What sort of support do victims<br />

of bullying need most? Is<br />

it really just people being kind<br />

to them?<br />

That really is a huge part of<br />

it, yes. It takes a community<br />

to prevent bullying – not just<br />

a school, or the person, or the<br />

family. Schools are the ones that<br />

are often blamed but they really<br />

struggle with the resources and<br />

it’s people like me who can help<br />

them create positive cultures –<br />

and I need funding. Funding<br />

would enable me to give more resources<br />

and help to more schools<br />

in Christchurch.<br />

But yeah, just being kind and<br />

doing things like, for example,<br />

setting up lunchtime events at<br />

schools. We held an anonymous<br />

appreciation day at Cashmere<br />

High School, where we provided<br />

kids with cards and they write<br />

anonymously nice notes to other<br />

people. We delivered 1200 notes<br />

to teachers and students that day.<br />

It was such a wonderful experience<br />

and just set a positive buzz<br />

around the school.<br />

How do you think we should<br />

view people who bully? Are<br />

these bad people or should we<br />

pity them, too?<br />

I do believe that a bully generally<br />

is someone who is doing that<br />

because they are being bullied<br />

themselves, so I do go the way<br />

of feeling sorry for them and<br />

empathising with their situation,<br />

rather than telling them they’re<br />

bad.<br />

Fighting prejudice<br />

• By Donna Miles<br />

CLOSE TO 40 different ethnic<br />

groups represent the Muslim<br />

community in the city.<br />

Community worker Dr<br />

Husaini Hafiz said that the<br />

city’s 3250 Muslims did not<br />

suffer from the same levels of<br />

Islamophobia experienced by<br />

Muslims in Europe and the<br />

United States, but racial and<br />

religious prejudices can exist<br />

everywhere.<br />

Dr Hafiz said the Canterbury<br />

Muslim Community<br />

Trust is building cultural and<br />

religious bridges by reaching<br />

out to the city’s Muslims and<br />

the wider non-Muslim community.<br />

“We would like to ensure<br />

that Christchurch remains a<br />

good place to live for all, which<br />

means taking steps to foster<br />

better understanding between<br />

different groups,” he said.<br />

Dr Hafiz said many people<br />

assumed that the Muslim community<br />

in Christchurch was<br />

homogenous with the same<br />

cultural practices and religious<br />

beliefs.<br />

He said that, in reality,<br />

the Muslim community in<br />

BREAKING PREJUDICES: Nada Tawfeek and her mother<br />

Dalia Mohamed are volunteers at the Islamic Women’s<br />

Council New Zealand.<br />

Christchurch was very diverse.<br />

The trust’s outreach programmes<br />

are run jointly with<br />

the Islamic Women’s Council<br />

New Zealand.<br />

ICWNZ member Denise<br />

Jeager said the inclusion<br />

of Muslim women in the<br />

outreach programme was essential<br />

to show Muslim women<br />

had a voice and they were willing<br />

to exercise it.<br />

ICWNZ volunteer Nada<br />

Tawfeek said the outreach programme<br />

was useful to bring<br />

about more open-minded<br />

views of Muslim women.<br />

“Some people were surprised<br />

to hear a girl in hijab speak<br />

with a British accent,” she said.<br />

Dr Hafiz said focus groups<br />

run in Canterbury had<br />

identified three common<br />

concerns amongst Muslims in<br />

Christchurch: leadership, communication<br />

and lack of Islamic<br />

knowledge.<br />

One of the trust’s goals<br />

was to address the need for<br />

stronger communication channels<br />

between Muslims and<br />

non-Muslim communities.<br />

Last July, the trust invited<br />

students from New Zealand<br />

Broadcasting School to join in<br />

the breaking of fast at the Al-<br />

Noor mosque in Christchurch.<br />

The invitation was a followup<br />

to an earlier educational<br />

session where the students<br />

were introduced to basic concepts<br />

of Islam and the impact<br />

of the media on Muslims.<br />

This year a similar educational<br />

session was offered to<br />

student journalists at the University<br />

of Canterbury and Ara<br />

Institute of Canterbury.<br />

Office of Ethnic Communities’<br />

general manager, Maarten<br />

Quivooy, said organisations<br />

such as the Canterbury Muslim<br />

Trust play a “vital role”<br />

in educating and supporting<br />

New Zealanders to embrace<br />

and celebrate the benefits that<br />

diversity brings to us all.”

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | JUNE <strong>2016</strong><br />

EQC begins settling ILV land damage claims<br />

Head of Canterbury Land Settlement for EQC,<br />

Keith Land<br />

The Earthquake Commission has begun<br />

settling claims for Increased Liquefaction<br />

Vulnerability (ILV) land damage.<br />

Keith Land, Head of Canterbury Land<br />

Settlement, says that the settlements will go to<br />

4,400 customers whose properties have<br />

qualified as having an increased vulnerability to<br />

liquefaction following the 2010-2011<br />

Canterbury earthquakes.<br />

“Each qualified property is being assessed and<br />

will be cash settled on a case-by-case basis as<br />

we have done to date with other forms of land<br />

damage resulting from these earthquakes.<br />

Similar to Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV)<br />

land damage, settlement of ILV land damage is<br />

a world-first. This type of land damage has not<br />

been covered by insurance anywhere else, so<br />

Fulbright-EQC Award recipient to study<br />

seismic performance of high-rise walls<br />

The Fulbright-EQC Graduate Award’s newest recipient, Alex Shegay,<br />

is looking into the reasons behind unexpected failures of reinforced<br />

concrete walls and ways in which performance can be improved.<br />

Mr Shegay, 24, has been granted the <strong>2016</strong> Fulbright-EQC Graduate<br />

Award in Natural Disaster Research and soon will be heading to the<br />

University of Washington on his exchange.<br />

In the US, he will research the seismic performance of high-rise structural<br />

walls and use experimental data to create validated computer models.<br />

The research will go towards his PhD in Structural/Earthquake<br />

Engineering at the University of Auckland.<br />

“Structural engineers have significant social responsibility to protect<br />

civilians even in the most devastating circumstances. The 2010/2011<br />

Canterbury Earthquakes were an example of one such catastrophic event,<br />

producing ground accelerations never before recorded in an urban<br />

environment.<br />

“Many concrete buildings in Christchurch that relied on reinforced<br />

concrete walls for seismic resistance were severely damaged to the<br />

point that it was fortunate to find them still standing. It’s crucial to learn<br />

from the Canterbury earthquakes and improve building design and<br />

construction practice.”<br />

considerable work was required to get the<br />

engineering and valuation methodologies<br />

right,” said Mr Land.<br />

“We want to make sure that the final settlements<br />

are based on a robust and appropriate<br />

settlement process so that customers can have<br />

confidence their claims for ILV land damage<br />

have been paid consistently and fairly.”<br />

EQC expects at least two thirds of ILV<br />

customers will receive settlements based on<br />

the reduction in their property’s market value<br />

caused by ILV, also known as Diminution of<br />

Value (DOV).<br />

“This is because generally, there are no<br />

available ground improvement methods to<br />

address ILV damage on a property where<br />

a house has remained in place since the<br />

earthquakes,” says Mr Land.<br />

The remaining third of ILV customers are being<br />

assessed for a settlement based on the cost to<br />

repair the ILV land damage. This will generally<br />

be in situations where the house has already<br />

been, or will be, rebuilt or removed due to the<br />

earthquake damage.”<br />

Customers receiving a ‘cost to repair’<br />

settlement will be individually case-managed,<br />

as the situation for each of them varies. Before<br />

it can be confirmed that these customers will<br />

receive a repair cost settlement, more<br />

information is needed to understand their<br />

property’s current situation.<br />

Mr Land says that settlements for DOV<br />

customers began this month and EQC also<br />

started contacting repair cost customers.<br />

EQC has resolved nearly 90% of properties<br />

with land claims resulting from 2010-2011<br />

Canterbury earthquakes, and expects to<br />

resolve the remainder of the land programme<br />

by the end of <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

EQC will also hold six ILV meetings from July to<br />

November for customers whose settlements are<br />

based on DOV. The purpose of the meetings is<br />

for customers to ask questions and hear from<br />

EQC and its valuers about what’s been involved<br />

in ILV settlement decisions.<br />

The Fulbright-EQC Graduate Award in Natural Disaster Research<br />

facilitates research that reduces and prevents natural disaster damage.<br />

It is part of $16 million granted by EQC each year to high quality research<br />

that builds knowledge about New Zealand’s natural disasters.<br />

Progress report<br />

on EQC remedial<br />

programme<br />

The Earthquake Commission has received 8,337<br />

remedial enquiries of which 2,<strong>21</strong>1 have been resolved<br />

as of 27 May <strong>2016</strong>. This leaves 6,126 enquiries<br />

remaining.<br />

The amount recorded as being spent on remedial work to<br />

May <strong>2016</strong> was $7,068,833. However it has not been possible<br />

to separate out all remedial costs from other work streams.<br />

The total cost of the remedial repairs will never be finally<br />

known until we have resolved all the outstanding claims.<br />

There are still a number of unknowns and it’s also too early<br />

to say exactly what the final figure will be for the remedial<br />

programme. However, EQC expects the final cost could be<br />

in the region of $60 million to $70 million, which is covered<br />

by our existing liability estimates. To put this estimate in<br />

context it would account for less than 3% of the approximate<br />

$2.5 billion cost of the Canterbury Home Repair Programme<br />

to date.<br />

The level of remedial work for the Canterbury Home<br />

Repair Programme is well within industry norms for the<br />

national construction sector.<br />

EQC has prioritised first time repairs, although it has carried<br />

out urgent remedial work for vulnerable customers or where<br />

the work is needed to make a house safe, secure and/or<br />

sanitary.<br />

Now that EQC is down to the last of the first time repairs,<br />

focus has increased on resolving remedials.<br />

EQC is confident it has the processes and teams in place to<br />

address the issues. EQC has been expanding the remedial<br />

team since September 2015 and more staff are being added<br />

as first time repairs near completion.<br />

EQC does not have a projected date to stop receiving<br />

remedial requests but will continue working with customers<br />

until their claims are resolved.<br />

One of the reasons for starting the Canterbury Home Repair<br />

Programme was to ensure customers would have the<br />

assurance that any issues with their earthquake repairs<br />

would be addressed.<br />

Currently around 100 remedial requests are being received<br />

a week.<br />

Customers can follow the progress of their<br />

claim through a series of EQC letters with a tick<br />

diagram. Each new tick means the customer<br />

is closer to receiving their settlement.<br />

Processing<br />

starts for<br />

Feb <strong>2016</strong><br />

quakes<br />

EQC aims to complete assessments<br />

more quickly for the February <strong>2016</strong><br />

Canterbury earthquake claims using<br />

customer-provided information for<br />

desk-based assessments.<br />

Onsite assessment visits to customers’<br />

properties will be the exception for cases<br />

where there is extensive damage, claims<br />

are complex or individual circumstances<br />

require it. EQC claim managers have<br />

been calling customers to get<br />

information and documents – such as<br />

specific damage measurements and<br />

photos – before deciding whether a<br />

phone or on-site assessment works best.<br />

Claims processing is well underway<br />

with over 685 claims paid so far out of<br />

the total 13,134 received. Priority is<br />

given to vulnerable customers, followed<br />

by claims in the order in which they<br />

were lodged.<br />

“Customers who have had their claims<br />

settled so far have told us that the new<br />

approach is working better for them.<br />

Before starting to settle claims, EQC<br />

proactively talked with customers about<br />

different ways of doing things, using<br />

their feedback to design our approach<br />

for this event,” says EQC Manager of<br />

the February <strong>2016</strong> Event, Jayne Lapin.<br />

“Most of the damage suffered is<br />

cosmetic, so EQC won’t manage a repair<br />

programme this time but, customers<br />

who need assistance to organise repairs,<br />

can contact our Community Contact<br />

Team in Christchurch. The team has<br />

strong links with support agencies who<br />

can help. Call EQC on 0800 DAMAGE<br />

(0800 326 243) to book an appointment<br />

with the Community Contact Team, if<br />

support is needed.<br />

“For customers whose 2010/2011<br />

Canterbury earthquake claims are still<br />

open, EQC aims to resolve their February<br />

<strong>2016</strong> claim together with their<br />

2010/2011 claims. We want to make<br />

sure all outstanding issues for their<br />

properties are on track for resolution by<br />

the end of <strong>2016</strong>,” Ms Lapin says.<br />

At this stage, EQC expects to resolve<br />

the majority of February <strong>2016</strong><br />

earthquake claims by the end of<br />

December <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

Burnside Associate Principal<br />

Richard Barnett has become Burnside High<br />

School’s Associate Principal this term, an<br />

exciting new challenge for him after four<br />

years as Deputy Principal for South Division.<br />

Whilst he will miss the students, families and<br />

staff that he got to know well in that area<br />

of the school, Mr Barnett is looking forward<br />

to broadening his responsibilities. Although<br />

he will not be teaching himself - for the<br />

first time in 32 years - Mr Barnett still finds<br />

working with and for students to be the most<br />

rewarding part of his new job at Burnside.<br />

Thank you<br />

To everyone who attended our Open Night on<br />

Tuesday 17 May. We trust you enjoyed your time<br />

with us, learned more about our school, and gained<br />

an insight into what makes Burnside High School<br />

special. I am grateful to our 250 volunteer student<br />

guides who were proud to share their school with<br />

you.<br />

Burnside High School is very successful and has an<br />

outstanding reputation for its ability to ensure that<br />

students achieve very well. We do this through our<br />

high-quality learning environments and specialist<br />

facilities. Our size, and all the advantages that this<br />

brings, is a point of difference and is what makes this<br />

decile 8, state, co-educational school special.<br />

Burnside High School bases its culture on a vision<br />

of ‘personal excellence and caring for others’. Our<br />

values-based approach and purpose-driven culture<br />

is the foundation for our success. Our school crest is<br />

the historic cabbage trees (tī kōuka) that stand so<br />

proudly on our grounds. They are a historic landmark,<br />

guiding the way to a safe journey. The school ethos is<br />

based on tī kōuka: guiding all who pass this way.<br />

The six significant features that make Burnside High<br />

School a leader of learning are:<br />

• We are a centre for academic excellence with an<br />

emphasis on high-quality teaching practices and<br />

in the outstanding achievements of many of our<br />

students.<br />

• Our roll of around 2,500 students enables us<br />

to provide an extensive, diverse and specialised<br />

curriculum that caters for and challenges students<br />

of all abilities.<br />

• We provide an exceptionally wide range of<br />

co-curricular opportunities (music, drama, dance,<br />

clubs and sports) for students to enjoy, learn new<br />

skills, take leadership roles, and achieve at a high<br />

level.<br />

• We are a caring school where students are known<br />

and supported as individuals within a positive,<br />

inclusive and well-resourced learning environment.<br />

• We have effective relationships with parents and<br />

the wider community that improve outcomes for<br />

students.<br />

• We are innovative and responsive to the evolving<br />

nature of society through continuous and rigorous<br />

review of our systems, practices and procedures.<br />

It is my firm belief that this school, in partnership<br />

with parents and caregivers, has the proven ability<br />

to guide students to become young adults with the<br />

skills, attributes, and attitudes to make a success of<br />

their lives in the workplace, in the community, and as<br />

members of supportive and loving families. I believe<br />

in, and am proud of, Burnside High School and feel<br />

privileged to be its Principal.<br />

Phil Holstein,<br />

Principal<br />

Stage Challenge<br />

Congratulations to everyone involved in Stage Challenge, this year both in the Open Division (Seniors) and the Raw Division<br />

(Juniors). Open received awards for: community, costumes, set, soundtrack and lighting design. Raw received awards for:<br />

choregraphy, costume, concept, performance, visual enhancement, lighting, and Spirit.<br />

The student led Speak Up group organised a very successful Pink Day this term. This involved Year 13 students dressing<br />

up in Pink for the day, to show that at Burnside High School we aim to create an environment where all students feel safe<br />

and can enjoy their education free from bullying. We were also very grateful for a new initiative that was brought to us by<br />

Ashley McDonald and her form class 12SPRL. This year every student in the school was able to sign a pink cardboard T shirt<br />

which was displayed in our library and made a beautiful and meaningful display.<br />

Charity Run<br />

On Monday the 16th of May the Year 13 Sports Leadership<br />

class completed a charity run to Akaroa. The class chose<br />

to undertake the task of running to Akaroa in order to raise<br />

funds for New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation and The<br />

Prostate Cancer Foundation.<br />

The class planned numerous fundraising activities such as<br />

a pizza night and sausage sizzles as well as approaching<br />

individual members of the community for individual<br />

sponsorship. The run itself started at 6:30am and the class<br />

reached Akaroa at 4:30pm. The students all together ran<br />

469kms averaging half a marathon each. Some of the<br />

organised fundraising is yet to be completed but so far they<br />

have raised over $2000.<br />

By the end of term 2 they hope to hit a grand tally close to<br />

$5000.<br />

SCHOOL<br />

Cotswold School junior pupils<br />

experienced what a normal summer in<br />

Antarctica is like when they visited the<br />

Antarctic Centre last week. The pupils<br />

all enjoyed the interactive experiences,<br />

including watching the little blue<br />

penguins swim in their habitat. Jordan<br />

Yang, 6, said he was “excited to see”<br />

them. One of the pupils’ highlights was<br />

the Antarctic storm room which drops<br />

to negative 18 deg C. The room goes<br />

dark and the wind starts to blow which<br />

gives the pupils a real feel for what the<br />

weather would be like in Antarctica in<br />

summer. Ryan McMillan, 6, said you<br />

knew the storm was coming. “The snow<br />

room was dark. It got windy but it was so<br />

fun,” he said. Devon Fearn, 6, said inside<br />

the igloo in the snow room was warm. “It<br />

was freezing and it was only summer,”<br />

she said. It wasn’t all fun and games with<br />

the pupils heading into a classroom to<br />

learn about the animal life in Antarctica<br />

and the surrounding environment.<br />

Migrant teacher retires<br />

• By Donna Miles<br />

A CHRISTCHURCH woman<br />

has hung up her hat after 20<br />

years of welcoming newcomers<br />

to the city.<br />

It was Mr Winston Peters’<br />

anti-immigrant rants that<br />

first spurred 80-year-old<br />

Margaret Sweet and her friend,<br />

67-year-old Gill Fahey, to join<br />

forces to welcome newcomers to<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The classes started off as<br />

social meetings but soon<br />

developed into topic-specific<br />

conversational classes.<br />

As the word got round and<br />

the classes grew in size, Ms<br />

Fahey and Ms Sweet set about<br />

recruiting helpers.<br />

“In our hey-day, we probably<br />

had 10, 15 teachers,” Ms Sweet<br />

said.<br />

Ms Sweet, a retired highschool<br />

English teacher, said<br />

the classes were a great source<br />

of friendship and learning for<br />

both teachers and students.<br />

“The thing that comes up<br />

more strongly is how alike we<br />

all are and how we all care<br />

about the same things,” she said<br />

Former student, Iranian<br />

woman Sima Siruspour, 71, said<br />

the classes helped her improve<br />

all your dental needs<br />

Warm, friendly & affordable dental care for the whole family...<br />

HELPING OTHERS: (From left) Margaret Sweet, of Ilam ,<br />

with one of her former students, an Iranian newcomer to<br />

Christchurch, Sima Siruspour, of Merivale. ​<br />

her English and learn about<br />

New Zealand culture.<br />

“We were very, very lucky<br />

to have the two Margarets,<br />

Maragret Sweet and Margaret<br />

Johnstone, and the other helpers,”<br />

she said.<br />

Another former student, Ron<br />

Luo, immigrated from China<br />

to Christchurch eight years<br />

ago, and was unable to speak<br />

LAWyerS<br />

English.<br />

Mr Luo said the conversational<br />

classes were helpful to<br />

give him confidence to speak<br />

English.<br />

Mr Luo now runs the Red<br />

Café at the Upper Riccarton Library<br />

where the conversational<br />

classes were run from.<br />

Co-founder of the classes, Ms<br />

Fahey, passed away from cancer<br />

in 2009.<br />

Nominated by her students<br />

and still ill with cancer, Ms<br />

Fahey was featured in the Good<br />

Sorts TV programme.<br />

“Gill looked lovely, so we saw<br />

the programme on TV and not<br />

very long after that, probably<br />

only maybe about 6 months,<br />

Gill died and they showed that<br />

TV programme at her funeral<br />

and that was so nice,” Ms Sweet<br />

said.<br />

Ms Sweet said the classes were<br />

wound down because they were<br />

left with only four teachers.<br />

One of the long-term volunteers,<br />

90-year-old Daphne<br />

Crampton, moved to Nelson<br />

after the earthquakes.<br />

Ms Sweet said that many of<br />

Ms Crampton’s former students<br />

had travelled to Nelson to see<br />

her.<br />

“Her former students are visiting<br />

her at the hospital and that<br />

is very nice,” Ms sweet said.<br />

Ms Siruspour said it was sad<br />

that the classes had come to an<br />

end but was pleased that Ms<br />

Sweet had organised a monthly<br />

book group, targeted at new<br />

English speakers, so teachers<br />

and students can continue their<br />

friendships.<br />

What’s new<br />

pussycat<br />

• By Donna Miles<br />

A MERIVALE woman who had<br />

vowed never to let another cat into<br />

her heart has succumbed to furry<br />

sweet persuasions.<br />

Bettina Zadehvakili’s beloved cat,<br />

Binka, died after a simple operation<br />

led to complications.<br />

Following the unexpected loss of<br />

her cat and the long grief that followed,<br />

Ms Zadehvakili vowed never<br />

to get attached to another cat again,<br />

but two cute local cats had other<br />

ideas.<br />

Scampy and Bonnie soon discovered<br />

stealing a cat-lover’s heart was no<br />

dog work.<br />

“Scampy shows up early in the<br />

morning and sleeps on my bed. Bonnie<br />

visits in the afternoon and likes<br />

lots of cuddles,” Ms Zadehvakili said.<br />

The two local cats have been great<br />

company for Ms Zadehvakili who,<br />

until recently, was spending long<br />

lonely hours at home writing her<br />

doctoral thesis.<br />

“They are extremely happy and affectionate<br />

cats. Hard not to love them<br />

really”, she said.<br />

Ms Zadehvakili’s 12-year-old<br />

daughter, Bahar, is also a fan of the<br />

feline duo. The cats’ owner Mr Chris<br />

Stevenson said he was aware of his<br />

cats’ long visits to Ms Zadehvakili’s<br />

home.<br />

Boys’ High have chance<br />

to go top of trophy table<br />

SPORTS<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’<br />

High could go to the top of the<br />

Thompson Trophy standings<br />

with a win over Cashmere High<br />

School tonight.<br />

Boys’ High come into tonight’s<br />

basketball game occupying third<br />

spot in the competition, behind<br />

Cashmere and Burnside High<br />

schools.<br />

The team has no shortage of<br />

talent with three under-19 and<br />

two under-17 Canterbury representative<br />

players in their line-up.<br />

The only blip in the season to<br />

date was a 76-85 loss to Burnside<br />

a fortnight ago.<br />

“We sort of dragged the chain<br />

in that game a wee bit. We<br />

finished well and got it back to<br />

three points with a few minutes<br />

to go, but just couldn’t quite seal<br />

the deal. It was a good game to<br />

be part of though,” said CBHS<br />

coach Glenn Lang.<br />

One of the driving forces<br />

behind Boys’ High’s success has<br />

been Jack Ansell.<br />

The forward is a consistent<br />

source of points, averaging<br />

around 20 points per game.<br />

Ansell has also been productive<br />

on the boards. He leads the<br />

league with 70 re-bounds, 30 of<br />

which have been offensive.<br />

CBHS will also be looking<br />

to have the services of highlytouted<br />

Canterbury Rams guard<br />

Quinn Clinton returned for<br />

tonight’s match.<br />

Clinton returned from Asia<br />

last week after attending a coaching<br />

program in China, which<br />

saw him test his skills against<br />

the best young players from<br />

throughout Asia.<br />

The event was also attended<br />

by top coaches from around the<br />

world, as well as current and<br />

former NBA players.<br />

Tonight’s opposition will provide<br />

plenty of challenges.<br />

Last year’s runner-up, Cashmere,<br />

are currently undefeated in<br />

the competition.<br />

“They just have an all-round<br />

solid team, they go pretty deep.<br />

They have a stand out guard,<br />

Connor McLaughlin. He’s pretty<br />

good, he’s a Canterbury under-17<br />

rep as well,” Lang said.<br />

Cashmere’s Connor McLaughlin<br />

is one of the competition’s top<br />

scorers and currently sits second<br />

in total assists.<br />

A vocal home crowd is expected<br />

at CBHS tonight. Tip-off<br />

is at 6pm.<br />

CREATING A PLAN: Christchurch Boys’ High will need to have a solid game plan tonight<br />

when they face an undefeated Cashmere High School. ​<br />

Ara nurses remain in demand<br />

ExcEllEnt EmploymEnt prospects<br />

and a variety of career options continues<br />

to attract talented students to the world of<br />

nursing.<br />

At Ara Institute of canterbury (formerly<br />

cpIt), the institute’s nursing programme<br />

is highly-regarded. In fact, 90% of nursing<br />

graduates find employment after graduation<br />

– that’s new Zealand’s highest nursing<br />

graduate employment rate. Ara prides itself<br />

on consistently reaching the top place.<br />

So what makes Ara nursing graduates so<br />

employable?<br />

years of experience in delivering nursing<br />

training, along with great facilities and<br />

expert tutors, is the first key to success.<br />

Secondly, the institute works closely with<br />

the health sector to ensure that the training<br />

aligns with what is needed on the ground<br />

in the region’s hospital wards, community<br />

health centres and aged care facilities. Ara<br />

continues to develop innovative work-based<br />

training that help prepare graduate nurses<br />

for the real world of work.<br />

Executive Director of nursing at<br />

canterbury District Health Board (cDHB)<br />

mary Gordon says the sector is closely<br />

involved with nursing training at Ara<br />

providing clinical placements for nursing<br />

students, employing new graduate nurses<br />

across the canterbury health system,<br />

supporting nurses to undertake graduate<br />

and post graduate education. nurses within<br />

the canterbury health system are very<br />

committed to supporting the training and<br />

development of Ara nursing students. “These<br />

students are our future nursing workforce.<br />

They will be our future nursing educators<br />

and leaders who will be shaping the health<br />

system for the future.”<br />

Head of nursing at Ara, cathy Andrew,<br />

says nursing training is aligned to industry<br />

conditions and the demands of modern<br />

nursing. “We have excellent relationships<br />

with clinical agencies and work closely<br />

together to provide learning experiences<br />

that are positive for students. We are seen as<br />

national leaders in innovative clinical models<br />

of learning and regularly receive feedback<br />

that our graduates are actively recruited by<br />

employers throughout new Zealand.”<br />

march <strong>2016</strong> graduates of the Ara Bachelor<br />

of nursing programme achieved a 90.3%<br />

employment rate. They are out there working<br />

in the sector in a variety of roles across the<br />

spectrum of nursing including hospital<br />

wards, mental health, community health,<br />

aged care and emergency units.<br />

ST ANDREW’S College<br />

suffered two defeats in the<br />

space of five days in the<br />

UC Championship.<br />

However, there may be a<br />

silver lining to come from<br />

the latest round of play.<br />

St Andrew’s got off to a<br />

bright start in Saturday’s<br />

UC Championship match<br />

against Shirley Boys’ High<br />

School.<br />

The competition’s top<br />

point scorer Sam Gilbert<br />

crossed the line for STAC<br />

10 minutes into the game.<br />

He then converted his<br />

own try to make it an early<br />

7-0 lead.<br />

Shirley Boys’ got themselves<br />

on the board five<br />

minutes late when first-five<br />

SPORTS<br />

SILVER LINING: St Andrew’s in action earlier this year against Roncalli.<br />

St Andrew’s tough week<br />

Jackson Taylor converted a<br />

penalty right out in front.<br />

St Andrew’s extended<br />

their lead 20 minutes<br />

through the first half.<br />

Winger Alipate Gonerogo<br />

did well to elude a<br />

last-ditch tackle before<br />

running in for the try to<br />

make it 14-3.<br />

That would be the last<br />

point St Andrew’s would<br />

manage.<br />

Tries either side of halftime<br />

swung the match in<br />

Shirley Boys’ favour and<br />

they didn’t look back, running<br />

in two further tries to<br />

win the game 27-12.<br />

Although the loss ended<br />

what had been a frustrating<br />

week for St Andrew’s,<br />

Saturday wasn’t all bad<br />

news.<br />

STAC lost the Moascar<br />

Cup, (secondary school<br />

version of the Ranfurly<br />

Shield) on Tuesday but<br />

will have a chance to reclaim<br />

it this weekend.<br />

Timaru Boys High<br />

School claimed the cup<br />

with a 14-11 win against St<br />

Andrew’s last week.<br />

However, they were<br />

unsuccessful in their first<br />

defence of the silverware<br />

on Saturday. Timaru lost<br />

the Moascar Cup to Nelson<br />

College 3-18.<br />

The result means that St<br />

Andrew’s will now have<br />

a challenge for the cup<br />

less than a fortnight after<br />

losing it.<br />

St Andrew’s travel north<br />

this weekend to face Nelson<br />

Are you struggling with the heat of<br />

Summer or wanting to get organised for<br />

Winter? With the ever changing weather<br />

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility<br />

of being able to heat and cool which is an<br />

Servicing your heat pump is extremely<br />

important to ensure that it is working<br />

they are still within the warranty period.<br />

It is important to remember, when<br />

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s<br />

warranty does not cover the installation<br />

any repair or damage caused to the system<br />

due to poor installation. enviro Master’s<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Get rid of dampness<br />

in your house<br />

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on its<br />

way, home owners are focusing on ways to make<br />

their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for<br />

their families throughout winter. rISIng DAMP<br />

is an issue that affects many of our older properties<br />

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In<br />

Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people<br />

have relocated to homes that suffer from rising<br />

damp which can be associated with health<br />

problems. Independent tests have shown that<br />

up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground<br />

and enter a house every day, leading to mildew,<br />

mould, condensation and musty smells. Moulds<br />

can produce various allergic reactions and the frail,<br />

elderly and very young are especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally<br />

owned and operated firm. The team understands<br />

the problems caused by rising damp and are there<br />

to help. They will come to your damp home and<br />

pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under<br />

your timber floored home. Specially adapted for<br />

our new Zealand conditions and applications<br />

it provides a layer of protection against rising<br />

moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently,<br />

is that many owners of properties which had<br />

underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it<br />

also provided protection against liquefaction after<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for<br />

your free, no obligation quote and complimentary<br />

appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs.<br />

To enSure the quality of your air, contact<br />

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate<br />

the required air exchange for your building<br />

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of<br />

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting<br />

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic<br />

markets. They have an extensive range of fans<br />

and ventilation components in-store but they<br />

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to<br />

differing requirements.<br />

VenTILATIon<br />

This includes both the exchange of air to the<br />

outside as well as circulation of air within the<br />

building. It is one of the most important factors<br />

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in<br />

buildings.<br />

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered<br />

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy<br />

environment in which to live and work. In case<br />

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,<br />

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and<br />

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation<br />

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,<br />

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not<br />

removed.<br />

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes<br />

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel<br />

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a<br />

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are<br />

harmful and can cause various diseases. even<br />

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the<br />

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open<br />

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter<br />

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to<br />

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can<br />

decline.<br />

It is therefore very important to ensure good<br />

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.<br />

5 TIPS<br />

for optimal NutritioN<br />

The degree to which your body is<br />

nourished with optimal nutritional choices<br />

will have a profound effect on your overall<br />

health and wellbeing. It will influence your<br />

energy levels, your mental wellbeing, your<br />

ability to burn fat, and the strength of your<br />

immune system, among other things.<br />

One of the most outstanding figures in the<br />

history of medicine was the greek physician<br />

hippocrates. he sums up the importance of<br />

optimal nutrition choices in one line: “Let<br />

food be thy medicine and medicine be thy<br />

food.”<br />

With winter upon us, now is a great<br />

time to focus on increasing the number<br />

of positive choices when it comes to<br />

nourishing our bodies with great nutrition.<br />

Base yOur nuTrITIOnaL regIme<br />

arOund WhOLefOOds<br />

Think nuts, seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables,<br />

pulses and meat. make choices in these food<br />

groups that are as close to the original food<br />

as possible. This helps ensure the vitamins,<br />

minerals and other nutrients<br />

are still intact. for example, raw almonds<br />

instead of roasted and/or salted ones.<br />

ChOOse OrganIC<br />

Organic farming places the utmost<br />

importance on caring for the soil because it<br />

forms the basis for health, for all life forms.<br />

healthy soil encourages disease-resistant<br />

plants, which then transfers to the animals<br />

and people who consume those plants. By<br />

choosing organic, you are opting for food<br />

that has been grown without the use of<br />

synthetic pesticides and without the routine<br />

use of antibiotics.<br />

drInk WaTer<br />

your body can survive a surprisingly long<br />

time without food, but it won’t last more<br />

than a few days without water. Optimal<br />

hydration is critical to ensure our muscles<br />

and nerves function properly, and even mild<br />

dehydration can lead to feelings of lethargy.<br />

how much<br />

to drink? The answer is quite simple – drink<br />

until your wee is clear or almost clear. That’s<br />

an easy way to measure whether you’re<br />

getting enough.<br />

Take TIme TO pLan and prepare<br />

fOr eaTIng WeLL<br />

It takes time and preparation to change your<br />

habits. schedule out time to write shopping<br />

lists, shop for food and prepare meals. plan<br />

to eat before you shop to minimise the<br />

chance of giving in to temptation foods –<br />

or shop online to minimise even further.<br />

make bulk meals to freeze for busy nights<br />

and set aside time to prepare a packed<br />

lunch the night before. keep useful kitchen<br />

items in easy-to-reach places – for example,<br />

put the blender on the bench rather than<br />

in the cupboard so that healthy smoothie<br />

preparation is quick and easy.<br />

Change OnLy One smaLL ThIng<br />

aT a TIme<br />

you may feel overwhelmed by wondering<br />

where to start improving your nutrition.<br />

make one small, achievable change and once<br />

that becomes a habit (something you can<br />

do without a major effort), then focus on<br />

something else. small changes are the key to<br />

success. for example, instead of saying “I’m<br />

only going to eat wholefoods from now on<br />

and forever,” instead make your target more<br />

realistic such as, “I’m going to increase to<br />

eating at least four different vegetables per<br />

day, on at least five days every week.”<br />

Chronic pain in one<br />

of your joints?<br />

Even if your joint is not in the best<br />

shape, a major part of the pain could<br />

be caused by the muscles surrounding<br />

the joint.<br />

At Physical Sense we have good results<br />

with releasing the muscles (with hands<br />

on techniques) and increasing your<br />

strength and flexibility. Within a few<br />

treatments you will know if this is<br />

what you need.<br />

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

Olive Leaf Extract<br />

Nature’s Extraordinary Immune Support<br />

As fAr ago as 1927 Doctors used olive leaf<br />

to reduce fevers and knock out malaria.<br />

scientists have discovered olive leaf contains<br />

powerful nutrients that directly interfere and<br />

even destroy nearly every type of disease<br />

causing micro-organisms including bacteria,<br />

fungi, mould, parasites, viruses and even<br />

yeast infections. As well as this olive leaf has<br />

immune enhancing benefits by activating<br />

immune cells that fight infection. for these<br />

reasons it has become a popular tonic herb<br />

that can be used to keep the immune system<br />

strong as well as when need to dramatically<br />

speed up recovery of conditions like colds<br />

and flu, pneumonia, tuberculosis, herpes,<br />

shingles, urinary infections, yeast infections,<br />

and much more. It has also been found<br />

beneficial for chronic fatigue syndrome,<br />

low energy levels, exotic and deadly tropical<br />

diseases, two types of leukaemia and even<br />

some cancers. In many chronic health<br />

conditions the immune system is run down<br />

and it is easy to have complications that are<br />

often life threatening. Olive leaf may be a<br />

safe and very effective option to boost the<br />

immune system and allow the body to have<br />

more energy to help heal itself.<br />

Olive leaf has also been found to be<br />

an effective cardiovascular tonic helping<br />

normalise high blood pressure, improve<br />

cholesterol quality, improve heartbeat<br />

It Is well known how important omega-3<br />

fatty acids are to good health. It is<br />

estimated most people don’t even get a<br />

third of the recommended omega-3 fatty<br />

acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a<br />

higher amounts of omega-3 in their diet<br />

are known to have lower cardiovascular<br />

disease and, in many cases, better overall<br />

health.<br />

recent research has shown inflammation<br />

to be a big part of disease and the ageing<br />

process.<br />

fish oil can help reduce inflammation by<br />

providing essential fatty acids required<br />

by the body to heal itself and maintain<br />

good health. Until now most fish oil<br />

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in<br />

triglyceride form. fish, however, naturally<br />

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and<br />

phospholipid form but until recently the<br />

phospholipid form was lost due to the<br />

manufacturing process.<br />

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new<br />

irregularities, and improve blood flow and<br />

vascular disorders.<br />

Olive leaf extract is so effective that too high<br />

a dose initially may make you feel worse. This<br />

is due to too many micro-organisms dying<br />

quicker than the body can process these dead<br />

organisms. This side effect can be minimized<br />

if you follow our protocol on dosage. Also<br />

drinking water and herbal teas especially<br />

raspberry leaf can be quite effective. further<br />

information on the amazing benefits of olive<br />

leaf and how it can be effectively used is<br />

available from our Medical Herbalist or our<br />

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health<br />

& Natural Therapy, 110 seaview road, New<br />

Happy to Help!<br />

GO-Advanced Omega-PC<br />

standards in fish oil as it contains<br />

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides<br />

and phospholipids. studies have shown<br />

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better<br />

absorbed, leading to increased levels of<br />

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs<br />

through giving the potential for more<br />

health benefits.<br />

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced<br />

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish<br />

using a new advanced and more natural<br />

cold extraction process that better<br />

preserves the natural nutrient profile found<br />

in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP<br />

standards and is molecularly distilled to<br />

remove any containments, toxins and<br />

heavy metals.<br />

fish oil and its benefits is available from the<br />

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!<br />

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good<br />

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!<br />

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!<br />

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally<br />

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the<br />

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better<br />

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with<br />

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.<br />

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:<br />

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as<br />

shown in research<br />

• Advanced new cold extraction better<br />

preserves the natural nutrient profile<br />

found in fish<br />

• Naturally contains phospholipids to<br />

support cellular health<br />

• Contains vitamin D3 to support immune,<br />

bone & cardiovascular health<br />

• Supports cardiovascular health - Countries with<br />

a higher Omega-3 intake have much lower rates<br />

MARKET UPDATE...<br />

The Redwood Team have just returned from<br />

our the National Harcourt’s Conference held in<br />

Auckland. There were some fantastic speakers<br />

and we have all come back with innovations to<br />

our business. We are very proud to be able to<br />

announce that at our annual awards evening,<br />

the Redwood Office was awarded Top National<br />

Office for Group One for the 2015-<strong>2016</strong> year.<br />

This is a fabulous accomplishment for our small<br />

team, we have worked hard to attain this<br />

award and are very grateful to all of our clients<br />

for the support that has helped us to achieve this wonderful tribute.<br />

Redwood is also proud to be part of the success of the gold group<br />

which won the coveted top national franchise award.<br />

Mark O’Loughlin was ranked 9th Nationally, 9th Internationally and Top<br />

Exclusive Lister for the Harcourts group which is testament to his hard<br />

work and dedication to achieving exceptional results for his clients and<br />

his commitment to the apartment developments in the inner city.<br />

Our huge congratulations also goes to Belinda Dunster who was<br />

Canterbury’s Rising Star for the last financial year.<br />

This was a well-deserved award for an amazing first year in real estate.<br />

Belinda’s enthusiasm shines through and her clients love the energy<br />

she brings to each transaction.<br />

The whole Redwood team can take a bow and celebrate their success.<br />

Please contact us if you would like to work with<br />

An oasis of pleasure and colour<br />

187 Sawyers Arms Road, Bishopdale<br />

Price: Price on application<br />

4 bedrooms |2 living areas |2 bathrooms |4-car garages | Listing Number: www.harveys.co.nz ID # 3430GT<br />

Our owner’s decision to downsize<br />

after 50 years on this magnificent<br />

home site offers established<br />

section lovers a rare opportunity<br />

to acquire and enjoy a piece of “North West<br />

residential history”. Once you come thru the<br />

double wrought iron gates, you realize that<br />

you will view a home that has been crafted<br />

together by a master builder, architect and<br />

homeowner to produce a home and garden<br />

setting.<br />

This must be one of the most interesting<br />

garden and home in the greater location.<br />

The original home has been faithfully<br />

maintained while the architecturally designed<br />

extension has been blended to continue the<br />

flow of originality with class and style.<br />

The four-bedroom wing is completed with<br />

its own two bathrooms, while the dining and<br />

two living rooms flow together to create sunny<br />

spaces for entertaining, resting and relaxation.<br />

Indoor and outdoor living is easy here, and<br />

coffee on the courtyard is a must. Prolific<br />

plantings with a vast selection of rhodos,<br />

camellias and specimen maples provide a<br />

blaze of colour in summer, although this<br />

1460m² section is a “four season garden” with<br />

colour throughout the year.<br />

The home is waiting to respond to the<br />

new owner’s expression of personality and<br />

preference in décor and furnishing. A setting<br />

that provides a four-car garage and garden<br />

shed, storage and off-street parking.<br />

Look! Dual access to the property may<br />

make subdivision a possibility.<br />
