Best mate labelled a

hero after explosion

• By Andrew King

DANIEL ROBERTS owes

his life to his best mate who

threw himself on top of him to

smother the flames he had been

engulfed by.

Mr Roberts of Ilam suffered

horrendous burns to his hands,

face and body after a butane

container was ignited by a

nearby heater and exploded on

June 7 at about 10pm.

He has been in an induced

coma in Christchurch Hospital

for the last 10 days and had to

undergo an eight-hour surgery

on Friday to graft skin onto his

hands and part of his back.

His wife Nadia Roberts said

if it had not been for his best

mate, James, he would have

died.

“He just saw his best friend

screaming in pain so he jumped

on top of him and tried to put

the flames out. He didn’t even

think about his own safety, he

just tried to save his mate,” Mrs

Roberts said.

James also suffered burns to

his hands but it was Mr Roberts

who took most of the blast.

She has labelled him a hero,

one of many that came to her

aid on that night but also in the

following days.

“The neighbours came over

and just said we will take the

kids you just take care of what

needs to be done over here,” she

said.

The couple have two children,

a nine-year-old and a two-yearold

and Mrs Roberts said it has

been hard for both of them.

“My two-year-old wakes up

at night crying for her daddy.

She now comforts herself by

cuddling his pillow at night,”

she said.

On Friday the shed was being

pulled down because of

memories it brought back for

the family.

“I just want it gone,” Mrs

Roberts said.

She said without the love and

support from her family and the

surrounding community things

would be looking much worse.

“I have to give a huge amount

of thanks to the emergency services,

the doctors, the local kindergarten

and my neighbours

who have helped out. It makes it

a little easier,” she said.

GRATEFUL: Nadia Roberts and her two children are praising the quick actions of her

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

DESK News......................3,5,6 & 10

IT IS a sad fact that bullying is

not only prevalent in schools, but

in many other facets of life. Vicki

Edwards-Brown is the driving

force behind Be The Change,

an anti-bullying programme

that started after she saw a lack

of empathy for those subjected

to schoolyard harassment. The

actress and singer talks about not

only the programme but her stint

on Shortland Street on page 8.

On page 10, reporter Donna

Miles talks to the Canterbury

Muslim Community Trust.

Though they do not suffer the

same levels of “islamophobia”

compared to the rest of the world,

there is still a way to go in understanding

the different cultures

of the 40 ethnic groups that

represent the Muslim community

in the city.

Have a good week.

Mall parks needed

• By Tania Green and Andrew

King

CARPARKING ISSUES at

Northlands Shopping Centre

are forcing vehicles out to

suburbans streets, creating a

nuisance for residents.

Residents say that malls are

not providing enough car parks

for their employees and shoppers,

with nearby streets taking

the load. That means narrower

streets, and not enough room

for visitors to park.

Papanui resident Kathleen

Crisley (left) said

it was particularly

bad around

peak time, such

as holidays, with

mall staff trying

to find a spare

space.

“Easter and

Christmas are times when our

whole street will be full with

cars. Some of them are more

considerate than others when

it comes to parking near driveways,”

she said.

But Northlands marketing

manager Rebecca Sheppard

said she was not aware of parking

being an issue, nor has it

received any complaints from

surrounding residents.

PARKING PROBLEMS: Residents say that malls are not providing enough car parks for their

employees and shoppers meaning nearby streets are taking the load.

“Northlands provides over

1700 car parks for our customers

and designated parking

for our retail staff and the city

council have ‘time limit’ parking

in most of the residential

areas in close proximity to the

mall,” she said.

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board chairman Mike Davidson

said the problem stems

from the consenting process.

“Pressure needs to be put on

developers to consider the employees

that will need to get to

their place of employment and

the surrounding residents who

are living nearby,” he said.

He said getting people into

these commercial areas without

the use of a car is key.

“We need to be looking at

better public transportation,”

he said.

City councillor Paul Lonsdale

said malls are not supplying

enough car parks for their

employees.

“We are seeing the spill over

into residential areas,” he said.

street packed with cars because

of malls? Share your

In Brief

MAN REUNITED WITH BAG

A man has been reunited with a bag

he left at a Papanui bus stop on May

30. It was taken to the Papanui Police

Station. They asked the Nor’West

News if it could run a picture of the

man to get his possessions back to

him.

WHOOPING COUGH

OUTBREAK

A warning has gone out to parents

at Paparoa Street School after an outbreak

of whooping cough. Six cases

were reported last week, prompting

an email from principal Philip Harding

to parents urging them to ensure

children were up to date with their

immunisations, and teach children

to cover coughs and wash and dry

their hands. To date, no other schools

have been affected.

WHEELIE BIN STOCKTAKE

Kerbside wheelie bins throughout

the city will be fitted with radio

frequency tags as part of a stocktake

starting next month. The stocktake

is designed to save $9.3m on the cost

of the bin collection service over

the next 13 years by removing lost,

damaged and stolen bins from circulation.

Radio frequency tag’s will be

installed to ensure bins that are damaged,

stolen or found on other properties

can be easily identified. The

short range radio frequency chips

will communicate with the collection

truck as it goes past to ensure that

the bin is located near the correct

property. It will take approximately

three years to complete.

Shirley-Papanui

Community

Board member

Jo Byrne talks

about having

“wheelchairfriendly

surfaces”

in childrens’

playgrounds, so all children

have the chance to play.

Many people know of my interest

in flooding issues in the Flockton

area.

However, many people don’t

realise that, as a part time speech

language therapist working with

children and young people with

disabilities, I have also been actively

advocating for more inclusive

facilities in our ward.

The therapy team I work with

made an in-depth submission to

the Margaret Mahy family playground

team on making that play

area safe and accessible for people

with disabilities.

Overseas, many major cities are

developing all access play areas.

These are destination play areas

where children of all abilities can

play on the equipment.

This means children with disabilities

can play alongside their

siblings and friends. Children can

be side-by-side using different

swings, including basket swings

and platform swings.

Children using wheelchairs are

then not isolated in the wheelchair

swing in the corner of a park.

Internationally there are now

play equipment manufacturers

which specialise in accessible play

grounds.

In Auckland an all abilities playground

has opened in Long Bay.

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board has been working for more

accessible play areas in our ward,

too.

Locally, it is fantastic to see the

Smile Dial Sensory Garden development

plans in Burwood.

As playgrounds in the ward have

come up for renewal, we have supported

city council staff in coming

up with play solutions that work for

as many children as possible (while

operating within the proposed

budget).

This means we have chosen more

wheelchair friendly surfaces, and

equipment that has more options

for less physically able children.

Work has started in the Craighead

Reserve play area, and is

planned for the new The Groynes

play area.

The community board would

love a future Christchurch that

has play equipment across the city

for all our young people, so they

can play safely in their own community

and have the most suitable

resources available.

Another project the community

board has had input into is the

working party for the design of the

new St Albans Community Centre.

The plans for the proposed centre

include an adult change bed, and

hopefully will also include a ceiling

hoist.

This means that adults with disabilities

who are unable to use the

usual disability toilet facilities can

still access their community and

not have to go home when they

need changing.

This would open the community

facility for use for a wider range of

community groups.

We all hope that when we look

at the future Christchurch that it is

truly accessible.

agree with Jo Byrne? What

parks can you think of that

so that all children

can enjoy them? Email fraser.

E Scott, Fendalton –

I simply cannot believe

this is even being considered.

I absolutely oppose this

idea. The city is difficult

enough to negotiate without

this. One cannot watch the

road and speedometer at the

same time. Having seen the

article showing traffic personnel

with a speed camera

proves, without a doubt, it is

a money making move on the

city council’s part. Why can’t

pedestrians and cyclists take

FLAME FILES

TWO PROPERTY fires, with

all the drama and heartache

they entail, occurred this

week – the result of very

topical causes reflecting the

start of winter.

In the early hours of last

Sunday, a household in Parklands

was alerted by smoke

alarms to the fact the house

was on fire.

That there were operating

smoke detectors saved a possible

tragedy, but the cause

may have been avoidable.

The origin of the fire was

traced to a clothes dryer that

responsibility for themselves

when moving around the

city. Already I avoid the

areas reduced to 30km/h,

so businesses will notice a

marked difference. All my

work colleagues are doing the

same. We have just returned

from a 21-day cruise in

Europe. For everyone who

asked where we came from,

my stock answer is “the city

from hell, called Christchurch”.

This absolutely endorses

that.

Winter fire tips

had been started before the

occupants went to bed.

There’s two points here.

Firstly, it isn’t known

whether the lint filter had

been cleared recently.

If it hadn’t, and this should

be done every time the drier

is used, it is possible the contents

just got hotter and hotter

to ignition temperature.

Secondly, the use of these

things should probably be

restricted to when you’re at

home, up and alert. Then you

can deal with problems immediately

as they occur.

Cyclists may get discount

• By Andrew King

A PROPOSED plan to provide

users of Jellie Park Recreation

and Sports Centre with

incentives to leave the car at

home is gathering momentum.

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board wants those

who walk, bike or use public

transport to access the facility,

instead of using a car, to be

rewarded.

The details will be hammered

out by a working party, which

will be formed within weeks to

get as many different groups and

Jellie Park users around the table

to hear their ideas.

Deputy chairman David

Cartwright said it is an exciting

project.

“We want all the ideas, no idea

is a bad idea,” he said.

One idea is for bike users, who

present their helmet to staff, to

receive a discount to use the

facilities.

“There will be those out there

that say it will be taken advantage

of by people driving to the

centre and taking a helmet with

them. Those people are just sad

and we can’t ruin what could be

a good idea because of that,” he

said.

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

means to get to Jellie Park.

Spokes Canterbury chairman

Don Babe said he applauds the

idea.

“I have always thought it was

a weird thing that people would

hop in their car and drive a long

distance to exercise. Why not

bike or walk instead. This would

encourage that,” he said.

Once all the ideas have been

gathered up by the working

party it will make a recommendation

to the city council, which

will have the final say on the

proposal.

That is expected to happen in

November.

“This will not only go a long

way to solve the parking problems

that sometimes arise at

Jellie Park, but it has huge health

benefits as well,” Mr Cartwright

said.

you use public transport or

bike to Jellie Park if you received

discounts to use the

facility? Share your views

New men’s

club home

• By Andrew King

THE BISHOPDALE Menzshed

hit two milestones last week –

they found a new home and they

now have 50 members.

The group has been based out

of two containers and an enclosed

courtyard at the Bishopdale Mall

after moving out of the Bishopdale

Community Creche.

They had to move to make

room for the new community

centre and library.

Now they will build community

projects and give those with surplus

skills a place to ply their trade

in the old scout den on Kendal

Ave.

Menzshed facilitator Bill Greenwood

said it is fantastic news for

the group.

“The old scout den will be fitted

out over the next few weeks to get

it ready for the boys,” he said.

He also was thrilled to hit the

50-member mark.

“It’s great isn’t it? We will be

able to do quite a bit of good in

the community and have a widerange

of skills,” he said.

The group started about two

years ago with five members looking

to help out their community.

It boosts a healthy mix of ages,

with members ranging from 18-

89 years old.

TWO Christchurch Girls’ High

School students had the luxury

of knowing they would win a

regional cooking competition

even before competing.

Year 13 students Bridget James

and Emily Perkins were the only

entrants in the Canterbury section

of the National Secondary Schools

Culinary Challenge, held at Ara

Institute of Canterbury last week.

This meant they only had to

show up to gain entry to the

national final in Auckland on

August 30.

The competition was meant to

involve several teams of year 12 or

13 culinary students going headto-head

in a live kitchen cook-off

to produce four portions of entrée

and main meals in 90 minutes.

Instead the girls were effectively

able to use it as a practice run for

the national final and a chance to

hear judges’ feedback.

James said the pair had been

happy with how they went.

“No other teams were around

to stress us out, but I think we did

pretty well.”

Regional head judge Glenn

Fulcher said it was very unusual to

only have one team in a regional

NOR’WEST NEWS

Former Shortland Street actor

Vicki Edwards-Brown started the charity Be The

Change in 2011 to tackle the problem of bullying and

help support victims. She spoke to reporter Tom

Doudney about what inspired her to set the charity

up, her role on Shortland Street and the freak spinal

injury she suffered.

I heard that you were actually

bullied as an adult, is that

right? What role did that play

in starting Be The Change?

Yes, I was but it’s not the driving

force behind why I started

Be The Change. That driving

force was to do with my husband

working in a high school, seeing

the effect that bullying was having

on young people around me,

and just really having a desperate

need to help them and massive

empathy for them. I was thinking

‘that’s hard enough’, and

then you have the earthquakes

to deal with as well, and we need

something in New Zealand to

empower young people to stand

up to bullying.

Yeah, I was bullied in the

workplace but I didn’t know it at

the time, so I guess it would have

been good to have tools and tips

to know that, actually, that’s not

okay.

Can you tell me more about

your background before

starting Be The Change?

My background is really in

the speaking side of it. When I

do the workshops and presentations,

that comes from an acting

background that I have. I have

been on Shortland Street and

other things when I was younger,

so that has drawn me to being

able to present to young people

and fit in.

When were you on Shortland

Street?

I was on in 2010. My husband

[Shaun Edwards-Brown] was actually

on for a whole year during

2009 and 2010 as well. He was a

pivotal character and I got a twomonth

contract as well, which

was really awesome.

What character did you play?

Her name was Jewel Fitzpatrick.

What was Jewel like?

TAKING A STAND: Vicki Edwards-Brown started Be The

Change, a charity that aims to tackle bullying. ​

She was actually an actress. I

was acting, playing an actress.

Who did your husband play

on Shortland Street?

He was Ben Goodall – a paramedic.

How did your tenure end

at Shortland Street? Did your

character get killed off or anything

like that?

No, some main characters did

a play and I was in that play, so

the play just ran its course and

that was it.

Did being on Shortland Street

open up any more doors for you

in terms of acting?

Yeah, we lived in Auckland

for six months and did some

ads and things like that. Then

we came back to Christchurch.

I had major back surgery and

then, being stuck in bed for six

weeks while watching TV, I saw

something which inspired me to

create Be The Change.

What was it you saw on TV?

It was a programme about

a bully prevention charity in

America called Challenge Day

and I saw that and just thought

‘wow, that is really awesome’

and it just inspired me to do

something because we needed

something like that in New

Zealand.

You mentioned being in some

ads, what might we recognise

you from?

They’re pretty old now –

Vector’s fibre to the door was

one. I was just like standing at

a sink turning the tap on and

trying to get water through a

straw.

takes a stand against bullying

But predominately I used to

sing – I’d sing at Twiggers, at

Addington Raceway. We used to

sing every Friday and Saturday

with the band. So a lot of my

performing was theatrical with

singing in a band and stuff like

that. I had my own band called

V.I.P. I have also done about 20

shows through Showbiz over the

years.

What sort of music did you

sing with your band?

I love 80s. Anything from the

60s right through. It was all Top

of the Pops stuff that people like

to hear.

So, have you stopped playing

with bands now?

I do stuff with a group called

Chant et Danse, a Christchurch

entertainment group.

You also mentioned that you

had major back surgery, what

happened there?

It was a really freak accident.

Eleven years ago, we were driving

down Moorhouse Ave and

there were high winds and a

three-storey high tree broke off

in the wind just as we drove past

and the tree came through the

roof on to my head.

Oh my gosh!

I’m laughing now but it wasn’t

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

good at the time, and it literally

broke my back. I had two spinal

surgeries so I have got a titanium

back.

Do you feel good as new now?

No, I have chronic back pain

but I have just learned to live

with it and do the best I can

through exercise and being

healthy and that sort of thing,

and having a positive attitude

about everything – everything. If

you can think of something to be

grateful for in life, and literally I

think helping other people helps

me. If I can lie in bed at night

saying I have helped one person,

that makes me happy.

What sort of support do victims

of bullying need most? Is

it really just people being kind

to them?

That really is a huge part of

it, yes. It takes a community

to prevent bullying – not just

a school, or the person, or the

family. Schools are the ones that

are often blamed but they really

struggle with the resources and

it’s people like me who can help

them create positive cultures –

and I need funding. Funding

would enable me to give more resources

and help to more schools

in Christchurch.

But yeah, just being kind and

doing things like, for example,

setting up lunchtime events at

schools. We held an anonymous

appreciation day at Cashmere

High School, where we provided

kids with cards and they write

anonymously nice notes to other

people. We delivered 1200 notes

to teachers and students that day.

It was such a wonderful experience

and just set a positive buzz

around the school.

How do you think we should

view people who bully? Are

these bad people or should we

pity them, too?

I do believe that a bully generally

is someone who is doing that

because they are being bullied

themselves, so I do go the way

of feeling sorry for them and

empathising with their situation,

rather than telling them they’re

bad.

Fighting prejudice

• By Donna Miles

CLOSE TO 40 different ethnic

groups represent the Muslim

community in the city.

Community worker Dr

Husaini Hafiz said that the

city’s 3250 Muslims did not

suffer from the same levels of

Islamophobia experienced by

Muslims in Europe and the

United States, but racial and

religious prejudices can exist

everywhere.

Dr Hafiz said the Canterbury

Muslim Community

Trust is building cultural and

religious bridges by reaching

out to the city’s Muslims and

the wider non-Muslim community.

“We would like to ensure

that Christchurch remains a

good place to live for all, which

means taking steps to foster

better understanding between

different groups,” he said.

Dr Hafiz said many people

assumed that the Muslim community

in Christchurch was

homogenous with the same

cultural practices and religious

beliefs.

He said that, in reality,

the Muslim community in

BREAKING PREJUDICES: Nada Tawfeek and her mother

Dalia Mohamed are volunteers at the Islamic Women’s

Council New Zealand.

Christchurch was very diverse.

The trust’s outreach programmes

are run jointly with

the Islamic Women’s Council

New Zealand.

ICWNZ member Denise

Jeager said the inclusion

of Muslim women in the

outreach programme was essential

to show Muslim women

had a voice and they were willing

to exercise it.

ICWNZ volunteer Nada

Tawfeek said the outreach programme

was useful to bring

about more open-minded

views of Muslim women.

“Some people were surprised

to hear a girl in hijab speak

with a British accent,” she said.

Dr Hafiz said focus groups

run in Canterbury had

identified three common

concerns amongst Muslims in

Christchurch: leadership, communication

and lack of Islamic

knowledge.

One of the trust’s goals

was to address the need for

stronger communication channels

between Muslims and

non-Muslim communities.

Last July, the trust invited

students from New Zealand

Broadcasting School to join in

the breaking of fast at the Al-

Noor mosque in Christchurch.

The invitation was a followup

to an earlier educational

session where the students

were introduced to basic concepts

of Islam and the impact

of the media on Muslims.

This year a similar educational

session was offered to

student journalists at the University

of Canterbury and Ara

Institute of Canterbury.

Office of Ethnic Communities’

general manager, Maarten

Quivooy, said organisations

such as the Canterbury Muslim

Trust play a “vital role”

in educating and supporting

New Zealanders to embrace

and celebrate the benefits that

diversity brings to us all.”

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | JUNE 2016

EQC begins settling ILV land damage claims

Head of Canterbury Land Settlement for EQC,

Keith Land

The Earthquake Commission has begun

settling claims for Increased Liquefaction

Vulnerability (ILV) land damage.

Keith Land, Head of Canterbury Land

Settlement, says that the settlements will go to

4,400 customers whose properties have

qualified as having an increased vulnerability to

liquefaction following the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes.

“Each qualified property is being assessed and

will be cash settled on a case-by-case basis as

we have done to date with other forms of land

damage resulting from these earthquakes.

Similar to Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV)

land damage, settlement of ILV land damage is

a world-first. This type of land damage has not

been covered by insurance anywhere else, so

Fulbright-EQC Award recipient to study

seismic performance of high-rise walls

The Fulbright-EQC Graduate Award’s newest recipient, Alex Shegay,

is looking into the reasons behind unexpected failures of reinforced

concrete walls and ways in which performance can be improved.

Mr Shegay, 24, has been granted the 2016 Fulbright-EQC Graduate

Award in Natural Disaster Research and soon will be heading to the

University of Washington on his exchange.

In the US, he will research the seismic performance of high-rise structural

walls and use experimental data to create validated computer models.

The research will go towards his PhD in Structural/Earthquake

Engineering at the University of Auckland.

“Structural engineers have significant social responsibility to protect

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

Canterbury Earthquakes were an example of one such catastrophic event,

producing ground accelerations never before recorded in an urban

environment.

“Many concrete buildings in Christchurch that relied on reinforced

concrete walls for seismic resistance were severely damaged to the

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

from the Canterbury earthquakes and improve building design and

construction practice.”

considerable work was required to get the

engineering and valuation methodologies

right,” said Mr Land.

“We want to make sure that the final settlements

are based on a robust and appropriate

settlement process so that customers can have

confidence their claims for ILV land damage

have been paid consistently and fairly.”

EQC expects at least two thirds of ILV

customers will receive settlements based on

the reduction in their property’s market value

caused by ILV, also known as Diminution of

Value (DOV).

“This is because generally, there are no

available ground improvement methods to

address ILV damage on a property where

a house has remained in place since the

earthquakes,” says Mr Land.

The remaining third of ILV customers are being

assessed for a settlement based on the cost to

repair the ILV land damage. This will generally

be in situations where the house has already

been, or will be, rebuilt or removed due to the

earthquake damage.”

Customers receiving a ‘cost to repair’

settlement will be individually case-managed,

as the situation for each of them varies. Before

it can be confirmed that these customers will

receive a repair cost settlement, more

information is needed to understand their

property’s current situation.

Mr Land says that settlements for DOV

customers began this month and EQC also

started contacting repair cost customers.

EQC has resolved nearly 90% of properties

with land claims resulting from 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes, and expects to

resolve the remainder of the land programme

by the end of 2016.

EQC will also hold six ILV meetings from July to

November for customers whose settlements are

based on DOV. The purpose of the meetings is

for customers to ask questions and hear from

EQC and its valuers about what’s been involved

in ILV settlement decisions.

The Fulbright-EQC Graduate Award in Natural Disaster Research

facilitates research that reduces and prevents natural disaster damage.

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

that builds knowledge about New Zealand’s natural disasters.

Progress report

on EQC remedial

programme

The Earthquake Commission has received 8,337

remedial enquiries of which 2,211 have been resolved

as of 27 May 2016. This leaves 6,126 enquiries

remaining.

The amount recorded as being spent on remedial work to

May 2016 was $7,068,833. However it has not been possible

to separate out all remedial costs from other work streams.

The total cost of the remedial repairs will never be finally

known until we have resolved all the outstanding claims.

There are still a number of unknowns and it’s also too early

to say exactly what the final figure will be for the remedial

programme. However, EQC expects the final cost could be

in the region of $60 million to $70 million, which is covered

by our existing liability estimates. To put this estimate in

context it would account for less than 3% of the approximate

$2.5 billion cost of the Canterbury Home Repair Programme

to date.

The level of remedial work for the Canterbury Home

Repair Programme is well within industry norms for the

national construction sector.

EQC has prioritised first time repairs, although it has carried

out urgent remedial work for vulnerable customers or where

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

sanitary.

Now that EQC is down to the last of the first time repairs,

focus has increased on resolving remedials.

EQC is confident it has the processes and teams in place to

address the issues. EQC has been expanding the remedial

team since September 2015 and more staff are being added

as first time repairs near completion.

EQC does not have a projected date to stop receiving

remedial requests but will continue working with customers

until their claims are resolved.

One of the reasons for starting the Canterbury Home Repair

Programme was to ensure customers would have the

assurance that any issues with their earthquake repairs

would be addressed.

Currently around 100 remedial requests are being received

a week.

Customers can follow the progress of their

claim through a series of EQC letters with a tick

diagram. Each new tick means the customer

is closer to receiving their settlement.

Processing

starts for

Feb 2016

quakes

EQC aims to complete assessments

more quickly for the February 2016

Canterbury earthquake claims using

customer-provided information for

desk-based assessments.

Onsite assessment visits to customers’

properties will be the exception for cases

where there is extensive damage, claims

are complex or individual circumstances

require it. EQC claim managers have

been calling customers to get

information and documents – such as

specific damage measurements and

photos – before deciding whether a

phone or on-site assessment works best.

Claims processing is well underway

with over 685 claims paid so far out of

the total 13,134 received. Priority is

given to vulnerable customers, followed

by claims in the order in which they

were lodged.

“Customers who have had their claims

settled so far have told us that the new

approach is working better for them.

Before starting to settle claims, EQC

proactively talked with customers about

different ways of doing things, using

their feedback to design our approach

for this event,” says EQC Manager of

the February 2016 Event, Jayne Lapin.

“Most of the damage suffered is

cosmetic, so EQC won’t manage a repair

programme this time but, customers

who need assistance to organise repairs,

can contact our Community Contact

Team in Christchurch. The team has

strong links with support agencies who

can help. Call EQC on 0800 DAMAGE

(0800 326 243) to book an appointment

with the Community Contact Team, if

support is needed.

“For customers whose 2010/2011

Canterbury earthquake claims are still

open, EQC aims to resolve their February

2016 claim together with their

2010/2011 claims. We want to make

Burnside Associate Principal

Richard Barnett has become Burnside High

School’s Associate Principal this term, an

exciting new challenge for him after four

years as Deputy Principal for South Division.

Whilst he will miss the students, families and

staff that he got to know well in that area

of the school, Mr Barnett is looking forward

to broadening his responsibilities. Although

he will not be teaching himself - for the

first time in 32 years - Mr Barnett still finds

working with and for students to be the most

rewarding part of his new job at Burnside.

Thank you

To everyone who attended our Open Night on

Tuesday 17 May. We trust you enjoyed your time

with us, learned more about our school, and gained

an insight into what makes Burnside High School

special. I am grateful to our 250 volunteer student

guides who were proud to share their school with

you.

Burnside High School is very successful and has an

outstanding reputation for its ability to ensure that

students achieve very well. We do this through our

high-quality learning environments and specialist

facilities. Our size, and all the advantages that this

brings, is a point of difference and is what makes this

decile 8, state, co-educational school special.

Burnside High School bases its culture on a vision

of ‘personal excellence and caring for others’. Our

values-based approach and purpose-driven culture

is the foundation for our success. Our school crest is

the historic cabbage trees (tī kōuka) that stand so

proudly on our grounds. They are a historic landmark,

guiding the way to a safe journey. The school ethos is

based on tī kōuka: guiding all who pass this way.

The six significant features that make Burnside High

School a leader of learning are:

• We are a centre for academic excellence with an

emphasis on high-quality teaching practices and

in the outstanding achievements of many of our

students.

• Our roll of around 2,500 students enables us

to provide an extensive, diverse and specialised

curriculum that caters for and challenges students

of all abilities.

• We provide an exceptionally wide range of

co-curricular opportunities (music, drama, dance,

clubs and sports) for students to enjoy, learn new

skills, take leadership roles, and achieve at a high

level.

• We are a caring school where students are known

and supported as individuals within a positive,

inclusive and well-resourced learning environment.

• We have effective relationships with parents and

the wider community that improve outcomes for

students.

• We are innovative and responsive to the evolving

nature of society through continuous and rigorous

review of our systems, practices and procedures.

It is my firm belief that this school, in partnership

with parents and caregivers, has the proven ability

to guide students to become young adults with the

skills, attributes, and attitudes to make a success of

their lives in the workplace, in the community, and as

members of supportive and loving families. I believe

in, and am proud of, Burnside High School and feel

privileged to be its Principal.

Phil Holstein,

Principal

Stage Challenge

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

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

choregraphy, costume, concept, performance, visual enhancement, lighting, and Spirit.

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

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

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

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

which was displayed in our library and made a beautiful and meaningful display.

Charity Run

On Monday the 16th of May the Year 13 Sports Leadership

class completed a charity run to Akaroa. The class chose

to undertake the task of running to Akaroa in order to raise

funds for New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation and The

Prostate Cancer Foundation.

The class planned numerous fundraising activities such as

a pizza night and sausage sizzles as well as approaching

individual members of the community for individual

sponsorship. The run itself started at 6:30am and the class

reached Akaroa at 4:30pm. The students all together ran

469kms averaging half a marathon each. Some of the

organised fundraising is yet to be completed but so far they

have raised over $2000.

By the end of term 2 they hope to hit a grand tally close to

$5000.

SCHOOL

Cotswold School junior pupils

experienced what a normal summer in

Antarctica is like when they visited the

Antarctic Centre last week. The pupils

all enjoyed the interactive experiences,

including watching the little blue

penguins swim in their habitat. Jordan

Yang, 6, said he was “excited to see”

them. One of the pupils’ highlights was

the Antarctic storm room which drops

to negative 18 deg C. The room goes

dark and the wind starts to blow which

gives the pupils a real feel for what the

weather would be like in Antarctica in

summer. Ryan McMillan, 6, said you

knew the storm was coming. “The snow

room was dark. It got windy but it was so

fun,” he said. Devon Fearn, 6, said inside

the igloo in the snow room was warm. “It

was freezing and it was only summer,”

she said. It wasn’t all fun and games with

the pupils heading into a classroom to

learn about the animal life in Antarctica

and the surrounding environment.

Migrant teacher retires

• By Donna Miles

A CHRISTCHURCH woman

has hung up her hat after 20

years of welcoming newcomers

to the city.

It was Mr Winston Peters’

anti-immigrant rants that

first spurred 80-year-old

Margaret Sweet and her friend,

67-year-old Gill Fahey, to join

forces to welcome newcomers to

Christchurch.

The classes started off as

social meetings but soon

developed into topic-specific

conversational classes.

As the word got round and

the classes grew in size, Ms

Fahey and Ms Sweet set about

recruiting helpers.

“In our hey-day, we probably

had 10, 15 teachers,” Ms Sweet

said.

Ms Sweet, a retired highschool

English teacher, said

the classes were a great source

of friendship and learning for

both teachers and students.

“The thing that comes up

more strongly is how alike we

all are and how we all care

about the same things,” she said

Former student, Iranian

woman Sima Siruspour, 71, said

the classes helped her improve

HELPING OTHERS: (From left) Margaret Sweet, of Ilam ,

her English and learn about

New Zealand culture.

“We were very, very lucky

to have the two Margarets,

Maragret Sweet and Margaret

Johnstone, and the other helpers,”

she said.

Another former student, Ron

Luo, immigrated from China

to Christchurch eight years

ago, and was unable to speak

LAWyerS

English.

Mr Luo said the conversational

classes were helpful to

give him confidence to speak

English.

Mr Luo now runs the Red

Café at the Upper Riccarton Library

where the conversational

classes were run from.

Co-founder of the classes, Ms

Fahey, passed away from cancer

in 2009.

Nominated by her students

and still ill with cancer, Ms

Fahey was featured in the Good

Sorts TV programme.

“Gill looked lovely, so we saw

the programme on TV and not

very long after that, probably

only maybe about 6 months,

Gill died and they showed that

TV programme at her funeral

and that was so nice,” Ms Sweet

said.

Ms Sweet said the classes were

wound down because they were

left with only four teachers.

One of the long-term volunteers,

90-year-old Daphne

Crampton, moved to Nelson

after the earthquakes.

Ms Sweet said that many of

Ms Crampton’s former students

had travelled to Nelson to see

her.

“Her former students are visiting

her at the hospital and that

is very nice,” Ms sweet said.

Ms Siruspour said it was sad

that the classes had come to an

end but was pleased that Ms

Sweet had organised a monthly

book group, targeted at new

English speakers, so teachers

and students can continue their

friendships.

What’s new

pussycat

• By Donna Miles

A MERIVALE woman who had

vowed never to let another cat into

her heart has succumbed to furry

sweet persuasions.

Bettina Zadehvakili’s beloved cat,

Binka, died after a simple operation

led to complications.

Following the unexpected loss of

her cat and the long grief that followed,

Ms Zadehvakili vowed never

to get attached to another cat again,

but two cute local cats had other

ideas.

Scampy and Bonnie soon discovered

stealing a cat-lover’s heart was no

dog work.

“Scampy shows up early in the

morning and sleeps on my bed. Bonnie

visits in the afternoon and likes

lots of cuddles,” Ms Zadehvakili said.

The two local cats have been great

company for Ms Zadehvakili who,

until recently, was spending long

lonely hours at home writing her

doctoral thesis.

“They are extremely happy and affectionate

cats. Hard not to love them

really”, she said.

Ms Zadehvakili’s 12-year-old

daughter, Bahar, is also a fan of the

feline duo. The cats’ owner Mr Chris

Stevenson said he was aware of his

cats’ long visits to Ms Zadehvakili’s

home.

Boys’ High have chance

to go top of trophy table

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH BOYS’

High could go to the top of the

Thompson Trophy standings

with a win over Cashmere High

School tonight.

Boys’ High come into tonight’s

basketball game occupying third

spot in the competition, behind

Cashmere and Burnside High

schools.

The team has no shortage of

talent with three under-19 and

two under-17 Canterbury representative

players in their line-up.

The only blip in the season to

date was a 76-85 loss to Burnside

a fortnight ago.

“We sort of dragged the chain

in that game a wee bit. We

finished well and got it back to

three points with a few minutes

to go, but just couldn’t quite seal

the deal. It was a good game to

be part of though,” said CBHS

coach Glenn Lang.

One of the driving forces

behind Boys’ High’s success has

been Jack Ansell.

The forward is a consistent

source of points, averaging

around 20 points per game.

Ansell has also been productive

on the boards. He leads the

league with 70 re-bounds, 30 of

which have been offensive.

CBHS will also be looking

to have the services of highlytouted

Canterbury Rams guard

Quinn Clinton returned for

tonight’s match.

Clinton returned from Asia

last week after attending a coaching

program in China, which

saw him test his skills against

the best young players from

throughout Asia.

The event was also attended

by top coaches from around the

world, as well as current and

former NBA players.

Tonight’s opposition will provide

plenty of challenges.

Last year’s runner-up, Cashmere,

are currently undefeated in

the competition.

“They just have an all-round

solid team, they go pretty deep.

They have a stand out guard,

Connor McLaughlin. He’s pretty

good, he’s a Canterbury under-17

rep as well,” Lang said.

Cashmere’s Connor McLaughlin

is one of the competition’s top

scorers and currently sits second

in total assists.

A vocal home crowd is expected

at CBHS tonight. Tip-off

is at 6pm.

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

when they face an undefeated Cashmere High School. ​

suffered two defeats in the

space of five days in the

UC Championship.

However, there may be a

silver lining to come from

the latest round of play.

St Andrew’s got off to a

bright start in Saturday’s

UC Championship match

against Shirley Boys’ High

School.

The competition’s top

point scorer Sam Gilbert

crossed the line for STAC

10 minutes into the game.

He then converted his

own try to make it an early

7-0 lead.

Shirley Boys’ got themselves

on the board five

minutes late when first-five

SPORTS

SILVER LINING: St Andrew’s in action earlier this year against Roncalli.

St Andrew’s tough week

Jackson Taylor converted a

penalty right out in front.

St Andrew’s extended

their lead 20 minutes

through the first half.

Winger Alipate Gonerogo

did well to elude a

last-ditch tackle before

running in for the try to

make it 14-3.

That would be the last

point St Andrew’s would

manage.

Tries either side of halftime

swung the match in

Shirley Boys’ favour and

they didn’t look back, running

in two further tries to

win the game 27-12.

Although the loss ended

what had been a frustrating

week for St Andrew’s,

Saturday wasn’t all bad

news.

STAC lost the Moascar

Cup, (secondary school

version of the Ranfurly

Shield) on Tuesday but

will have a chance to reclaim

it this weekend.

Timaru Boys High

School claimed the cup

with a 14-11 win against St

Andrew’s last week.

However, they were

unsuccessful in their first

defence of the silverware

on Saturday. Timaru lost

the Moascar Cup to Nelson

College 3-18.

The result means that St

Andrew’s will now have

a challenge for the cup

less than a fortnight after

losing it.

St Andrew’s travel north

this weekend to face Nelson

College.

“A local team for local people”

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

GYMNASTICS AND

trampolining pupils from

Marshland School mixed

it up with the best in

their age group at a recent

national competition.

Seven Marshland pupils

attended the 2016 Otago

artistic qualifying competition,

a trampoline tournament,

and the Dunedin

Gymnastic Academy 1st

junior competitions.

Seven-year-old Marshland

gymnast, Libby

McDonald, won first place

overall, second in the floor

section, and second in the

vault.

Her gym team also finished

second overall.

Principal Jacqui Pascoe

said it had been an “exciting

weekend” for the

pupils.

“(It was) a very exciting

weekend for a number of

our Marshland children.

In another competition,

the Marshland School

Tramp Team did incredibly

well,” she said.

In the trampoline competition,

Jacob McGraw,

9, won the men’s B grade;

Ethan Field, 9, gained

silver in the men’s A grade;

Isla Maclean, 9, also gained

silver in the women’s A

grade; Riley Field, 7, placed

third in the men’s C grade;

Brooke Robertson, 6, was

sixth in the women’s C

grade; and Milly Robertson

competed for the first

time in women’s C grade.

Mrs Pascoe said the

scores gave Marshland a

podium finish over the

weekend.

“With the top four scores

combined, the Marshland

School team came in

second overall as well –

outstanding,” she said.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness

in your house

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on its

way, home owners are focusing on ways to make

their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for

their families throughout winter. rISIng DAMP

is an issue that affects many of our older properties

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In

Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people

have relocated to homes that suffer from rising

damp which can be associated with health

problems. Independent tests have shown that

up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground

and enter a house every day, leading to mildew,

mould, condensation and musty smells. Moulds

can produce various allergic reactions and the frail,

elderly and very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally

owned and operated firm. The team understands

the problems caused by rising damp and are there

to help. They will come to your damp home and

pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under

your timber floored home. Specially adapted for

our new Zealand conditions and applications

it provides a layer of protection against rising

moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently,

is that many owners of properties which had

underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it

also provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd now for

your free, no obligation quote and complimentary

appraisal of your underfloor ventilation needs.

Phone 03 376 4608 or 0508 362626 for more

information.

smooth-air products

To enSure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required air exchange for your building

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic

markets. They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

VenTILATIon

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

5 TIPS

for optimal NutritioN

The degree to which your body is

nourished with optimal nutritional choices

will have a profound effect on your overall

health and wellbeing. It will influence your

energy levels, your mental wellbeing, your

ability to burn fat, and the strength of your

immune system, among other things.

One of the most outstanding figures in the

history of medicine was the greek physician

hippocrates. he sums up the importance of

optimal nutrition choices in one line: “Let

food be thy medicine and medicine be thy

food.”

With winter upon us, now is a great

time to focus on increasing the number

of positive choices when it comes to

nourishing our bodies with great nutrition.

Base yOur nuTrITIOnaL regIme

arOund WhOLefOOds

Think nuts, seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables,

pulses and meat. make choices in these food

groups that are as close to the original food

as possible. This helps ensure the vitamins,

minerals and other nutrients

are still intact. for example, raw almonds

instead of roasted and/or salted ones.

ChOOse OrganIC

Organic farming places the utmost

importance on caring for the soil because it

forms the basis for health, for all life forms.

healthy soil encourages disease-resistant

plants, which then transfers to the animals

and people who consume those plants. By

choosing organic, you are opting for food

that has been grown without the use of

synthetic pesticides and without the routine

use of antibiotics.

drInk WaTer

your body can survive a surprisingly long

time without food, but it won’t last more

than a few days without water. Optimal

hydration is critical to ensure our muscles

and nerves function properly, and even mild

dehydration can lead to feelings of lethargy.

how much

to drink? The answer is quite simple – drink

until your wee is clear or almost clear. That’s

an easy way to measure whether you’re

getting enough.

Take TIme TO pLan and prepare

fOr eaTIng WeLL

It takes time and preparation to change your

habits. schedule out time to write shopping

lists, shop for food and prepare meals. plan

to eat before you shop to minimise the

chance of giving in to temptation foods –

or shop online to minimise even further.

make bulk meals to freeze for busy nights

and set aside time to prepare a packed

lunch the night before. keep useful kitchen

items in easy-to-reach places – for example,

put the blender on the bench rather than

in the cupboard so that healthy smoothie

preparation is quick and easy.

Change OnLy One smaLL ThIng

aT a TIme

you may feel overwhelmed by wondering

where to start improving your nutrition.

make one small, achievable change and once

that becomes a habit (something you can

do without a major effort), then focus on

something else. small changes are the key to

success. for example, instead of saying “I’m

only going to eat wholefoods from now on

and forever,” instead make your target more

realistic such as, “I’m going to increase to

eating at least four different vegetables per

day, on at least five days every week.”

Chronic pain in one

of your joints?

Even if your joint is not in the best

shape, a major part of the pain could

be caused by the muscles surrounding

the joint.

At Physical Sense we have good results

with releasing the muscles (with hands

on techniques) and increasing your

strength and flexibility. Within a few

treatments you will know if this is

what you need.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Olive Leaf Extract

Nature’s Extraordinary Immune Support

As fAr ago as 1927 Doctors used olive leaf

to reduce fevers and knock out malaria.

scientists have discovered olive leaf contains

powerful nutrients that directly interfere and

even destroy nearly every type of disease

causing micro-organisms including bacteria,

fungi, mould, parasites, viruses and even

yeast infections. As well as this olive leaf has

immune enhancing benefits by activating

immune cells that fight infection. for these

reasons it has become a popular tonic herb

that can be used to keep the immune system

strong as well as when need to dramatically

speed up recovery of conditions like colds

and flu, pneumonia, tuberculosis, herpes,

shingles, urinary infections, yeast infections,

and much more. It has also been found

beneficial for chronic fatigue syndrome,

low energy levels, exotic and deadly tropical

diseases, two types of leukaemia and even

some cancers. In many chronic health

conditions the immune system is run down

and it is easy to have complications that are

often life threatening. Olive leaf may be a

safe and very effective option to boost the

immune system and allow the body to have

more energy to help heal itself.

Olive leaf has also been found to be

an effective cardiovascular tonic helping

normalise high blood pressure, improve

cholesterol quality, improve heartbeat

It Is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is

estimated most people don’t even get a

third of the recommended omega-3 fatty

acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a

higher amounts of omega-3 in their diet

are known to have lower cardiovascular

disease and, in many cases, better overall

health.

recent research has shown inflammation

to be a big part of disease and the ageing

process.

fish oil can help reduce inflammation by

providing essential fatty acids required

by the body to heal itself and maintain

good health. Until now most fish oil

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in

triglyceride form. fish, however, naturally

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and

phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

irregularities, and improve blood flow and

vascular disorders.

Olive leaf extract is so effective that too high

a dose initially may make you feel worse. This

is due to too many micro-organisms dying

quicker than the body can process these dead

organisms. This side effect can be minimized

if you follow our protocol on dosage. Also

drinking water and herbal teas especially

raspberry leaf can be quite effective. further

information on the amazing benefits of olive

leaf and how it can be effectively used is

available from our Medical Herbalist or our

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 110 seaview road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always

Happy to Help!

GO-Advanced Omega-PC

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

through giving the potential for more

health benefits.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found

in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP

standards and is molecularly distilled to

remove any containments, toxins and

heavy metals.

further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from the

Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath and

Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy in New Brighton, phone

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

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

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

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

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

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

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

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

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

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

preserves the natural nutrient profile

found in fish

• Naturally contains phospholipids to

support cellular health

• Contains vitamin D3 to support immune,

bone & cardiovascular health

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

Our owner’s decision to downsize

after 50 years on this magnificent

home site offers established

section lovers a rare opportunity

to acquire and enjoy a piece of “North West

residential history”. Once you come thru the

double wrought iron gates, you realize that

you will view a home that has been crafted

together by a master builder, architect and

homeowner to produce a home and garden

setting.

This must be one of the most interesting

garden and home in the greater location.

The original home has been faithfully

maintained while the architecturally designed

extension has been blended to continue the

flow of originality with class and style.

The four-bedroom wing is completed with

its own two bathrooms, while the dining and

two living rooms flow together to create sunny

spaces for entertaining, resting and relaxation.

Indoor and outdoor living is easy here, and

coffee on the courtyard is a must. Prolific

plantings with a vast selection of rhodos,

camellias and specimen maples provide a

blaze of colour in summer, although this

1460m² section is a “four season garden” with

colour throughout the year.

The home is waiting to respond to the

new owner’s expression of personality and

preference in décor and furnishing. A setting

that provides a four-car garage and garden

shed, storage and off-street parking.

Look! Dual access to the property may

make subdivision a possibility.
