Call for resident parking

permits across city

• By Andrew King

FIRST HE fought for a

12-month trial for contractors

to have parking permits, now a

city councillor wants to extend

that to residents across the city

as well.

City councillor

Jamie Gough

(left) wants

to introduce

parking permits

so residents in

Christchurch

can park outside

their home exempt from restricted

parking time constraints.

“Parking restrictions are a necessary

evil, to promote vehicle

turnover in busy areas, but the

point of them is not to punish

the residents that need to park

in front of their own house for

longer than the restricted time

period. I think there’s a better

way, and it’s pretty straight-forward,”

he said.

The permit would overrule any

parking restrictions on the street

they live on.

“Parking is a massive issue in

the city. I’m not saying this will

be the great savour but it will

definitely go a long way to helping

the situation,” he said.

Russley resident Ken Legat said

the permit was a fantastic idea

PARKING WOES: Restrictions will soon be installed on Harewood Rd meaning residents will not be able to park outside of their

properties longer than 120 minutes.

that will start to give residents

the freedom to park outside their

properties.

“Parking is a big problem, especially

for us, with the inclusion

of the Airport Business Park and

its employees needing a space to

park near their work,” he said.

Special introductory offer

Cr Gough said it is a bit of a

“pet project” of his but it will

take a while to get off the ground

because of the work required by

city council traffic staff and the

upcoming election.

The permits would be similar

to the contractor parking

permits he campaigned for on

behalf of a Holmwood Rd resident,

which allows contractors to

park exempt from restrictions in

suburban streets.

That idea is a month into a trial.

Cr Gough and fellow councillor

Raf Manji have asked city

Library construction under way

• By Andrew King

GROUND HAS been broken

and construction has begun on

the new Bishopdale Community

Centre and Library.

Residents and members of the

Fendalton-Waimairi Community

Board gathered yesterday to

watch the first sod being turned

on the project.

The Bishopdale Library was

closed in November 2011 following

a report that showed it

would sustain severe damage in

another earthquake.

The new facility will be built

on the on the site of the former

Bishopdale Creche in Bishopdale

Mall which is adjacent to the old

library.

It will have a combined library

and community hall joined by

an atrium.

The library includes a 330 sq m

collection space and can also

open out to a deck.

The adjacent meeting spaces

can be booked by community

groups, and will also be available

after hours when the library is

closed.

Board chairwoman Val Carter

said the old centre was extremely

well used and the new one will

be as well.

“There are so many community

groups around Bishopdale

that will be very excited for this

space to open,” she said.

Massive water bypass

will prevent flooding

CONTRACTORS working on a

scheme to reduce flooding in the

Dudley Creek area will install

giant box-shaped concrete pipes

to divert water from the creek

to the Avon River during heavy

rain.

The pre-cast, concrete pipes

are 4m wide x 2m deep, and will

be laid end-to-end to form an

800m long underground bypass.

Nearly 500 sections of pipe,

each weighing four to five

tonnes, will be needed to create

the bypass, which is part of

a $48m remediation scheme

aimed at reducing the risk of

Dudley Creek flooding.

When completed in mid-2017,

the scheme will decrease the risk

of flooding for more than 585

properties.

The piped bypass will run

south of Petrie St and east along

Randall and Medway Sts to the

Avon River.

Contracting company

Downer will begin excavating

the ground and laying the first

sections of pipes in the next couple

of weeks.

They will be working from

both ends of the bypass route in

BIG PIPE: City council land drainage manger Keith Davison

stands inside one of the pieces that will be used to futureproof

the Dudley Creek area.

order to progress construction

as quickly as possible.

The goal is to have the bypass

completed by the start of next

winter.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said,

when completed, the piped bypass

would be one of the biggest

in New Zealand.

It would be dry most of the

time as it was only designed to

be used in heavy rainfall events

when there was a risk of Dudley

Creek overflowing.

In those circumstances, it

would divert water from the

creek to the Avon River.

Its size meant it would have

the capacity to handle over 8 cu

m of flood water every second.

“The bypass is a key component

of the land drainage work

we are doing in the Dudley

Creek area and will significantly

lessen the risk of flooding for

nearby properties,’’ Mr Davison

said.

FLAME FILES

Don’t be dumb

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

A COUPLE of big fires featured

in the city this week including

the widely reported event in the

Sol Square building that was

demolished last weekend after

fire damage completed the work

that an earthquake started five

years ago.

This fire (right) is the latest

example of the fact that if buildings

are left empty for years the

potential for them to be set on

fire increases every week.

Particularly those buildings

that can be accessed easily and

furtively.

The incident involved seven

fire appliances and a command

unit and tied up resources for 14

hours.

The other large fire was the destruction

of a 100-year-old house

in Clifton Bay that occurred in

the early hours of last Sunday.

Inquiries as to its cause are

continuing but this was another

house empty with earthquake

damage.

It was the largest fire the Sumner

Brigade has been faced with

for some time.

Also over the week were four

incidents where people were

hurt, generally trying to control

a fire, failing and burning themselves

in the process or swallowing

enough smoke to make them

sick.

A young man was burnt at a

party bonfire near the university

early on Saturday evening.

He was taken to hospital and

the fire was put out.

Only to be lit again after the

crew departed.

Two things.

Alcohol and fire don’t mix

well.

And re-lighting a fire after fire

crews have gone is dumb and

irresponsible.

Which takes us back to the

first thing doesn’t it?

Blessing for St Barnabas

Quake repairs

under way

A SITE blessing ceremony

was held recently to get repairs

under way on the historic St

Barnabas Anglican Church.

About 200 people gathered

for the ceremony where Bishop

Victoria Matthews sprinkled

holy water around the site

and inside the church, and

blessed it.

The Fendalton Rd church was

badly damaged in the February

22, 2011, earthquake, and

services have had to be held in

the hall since.

C Lund and Son will carry out

the work to the Fendalton Rd

church, which includes repairing

stonework, strengthening the

roof connections and corners

of the building, and injecting

specialist grout into the core

of all the walls to increase the

strength and resilience of the

building.

The work would bring the

church up to at least 67 per cent

of the New Building Standard,

to make it safe and secure.

Church takes

in another

congregation

• By Andrew King

A CHURCH in north-west

church is helping another out

during its time of need.

The Christchurch North Methodist

Church has taken

on community groups and the

local congregation from

Bishopdale’s St Margaret’s

Presbyterian Church which was

gutted by an alleged arsonist on

May 15.

Parish chairman Richard

Chalkler said it was the least they

could do.

They are in a time of need so we

want to help out as much as we

can,” he said.

“We have so many people using

the space now that it is hard to

book time in our own church,

which is a good thing.”

Our People

Putting our anti-nuclear stand

Dr Kate Dewes has been fighting to keep New Zealand

nuclear-free since her early 20s. She spoke to reporter

Caitlin Miles about receiving threats for her work, sharing

a memorable moment with the United Nations secretary

general in 2011 and her plans to spend more time with

her family

Now that New Zealand has been

nuclear free for nearly 30 years,

can you tell me why you became

involved in nuclear disarmament

work?

It goes back to 1975. I was a

23-year-old music teacher at Epsom

Girls Grammar, and at the time I

was about to teach the girls a piece

of music dedicated to the survivors

of the atomic bomb that was

dropped on Hiroshima. I wanted to

learn who the victims were and what

happened to them and the aftermath

of it. I was horrified. I decided

I wanted to go back to university

and learn about peace studies and

nuclear disarmament.

Is that when you decided to

study in England?

No university in New Zealand was

offering a course in peace studies. So

I had to leave the country to be able

to do it. I went to Bradford University

to learn more about peace

talks, disarmament and what was

happening around the world. I lived

in Bradford while I studied and then

came back here.

Why did you decide to come

back to Christchurch?

Well, I had to. And I was pregnant

with my first daughter so I wanted

to settle back here. I also wanted to

be able to keep working on disarmament

and promoting peace talks

within Christchurch and the rest of

New Zealand. In 1979, I had my first

daughter and became a founding

member of the Peace Foundation.

I ran the Christchurch office from

home. I still do.

How was it balancing motherhood

and work?

It was tough. I have three

daughters and I was a solo mum so

there was a lot to do. It was really a

balancing act. I never had hired help

to look after my girls that was part

of my job. There were other woman

involved in the Peace Foundation

so we would take turns baby sitting

each others kids when we needed

to do things. I slowed down a bit

after the earthquakes, though. It was

more a case that I had to.

Why was that?

Our house in Riccarton was

damaged following the September

4, 2010, earthquake and all of my

work and the paper I had written on

nuclear disarmament, and my PhD

on peace issues, had to be put into

storage so they could be kept safe. It

MEMORABLE: Following the February 22, 2011, earthquake, UN

secretary general Ban Ki-moon told Dr Dewes that the people

of Christchurch had his support.

turned out to be about 120 banana

boxes of work. Funnily, they were

stored in the Air Force Museum

here in Christchurch.

You got some abuse for what you

were doing, can you tell me a bit

about that?

There were some people that were

against what we were doing. It was

the height of the cold war and we

wanted to educate people as to what

was going on. I was getting threatening

phone calls about being attacked

and some people even came to my

home. I remember a photo was

taken of me in the paper with one

of my daughters sitting on my lap

and someone said to me, ‘how dare

you travel and work internationally

when you have a family!’ I just

laugh about it. There was a group

that was against our idea of encouraging

schools to teach children

about peace settlements and things.

Someone from the group against

what we were doing spoke at a concerned

parents’ association meeting

in Hamilton. That’s where I am from

and my parents were in the audience.

During the person’s speech,

he called me a communist, not that

there was anything wrong with that,

but at the time that was a rather

weighted word. My parents were in

the audience, and my dad stood up

and said that I was his daughter and

he defended me. That was a really

big thing to do.

Were there many low points?

It was hard travelling internationally

and being a solo mum, but I did

it. When I wasn’t overseas, I worked

from home so I could manage.

What do you think are your really

big personal achievements?

Being a mother of three daughters

is a big personal achievement.

Getting my PhD was another one.

I was working, being a parent and

doing my PhD, so I’m really proud

of that.

on the world stage

POLITICAL INVOLVEMENT: Former Prime Minister David

Lange spoke to Dr Dewes about making New Zealand

nuclear-free and not allowing nuclear weapons to enter the

country.

What about moments when you

have had to pinch yourself?

There were a few pinch yourself

moments with all the people I have

met and things we have managed

to achieve. I was in the United

States when I got the news that the

February 22, 2011, earthquake hit.

I thought about the house; it didn’t

do well in the September-quake so

I was worried it would be gone completely.

I got all set to head back to

Christchurch and I called one of my

daughters and she said, ‘no mum

stay there, you have some important

things to do, you need to stay and

do it’. So I did. In the morning, I saw

pictures the New York Times had

go and speak at the UN. We were

started and someone must have

told the UN secretary general where

I was from and he came up to me

and shook my hand and said, ‘please

tell the people of Christchurch they

have my support’. Then he told the

whole audience at the UN where I

was from and what had happened to

my city. I couldn’t speak for several

moments. I saw what had happened

at home as an opportunity to get my

point across.

What was the point you were

making?

If we had a nuclear power centre

in Christchurch, the effect would

have been devastating. Especially if

a tsunami had come through. The

rest of the country would have been

in a really horrible situation. The

Japanese ambassador challenged me

on what I said. I had no idea several

weeks later I would be writing him

letters of support for what had happened

following the earthquake that

hit Japan.

How did you meet your second

husband?

I was in Geneva for work in 1992

and Robert Green was at the same

convention about peace talks and

nuclear development. Robert was

the chair of the United Kingdom

branch of the World Court Project

so I gradually got to know him. I

had to convince him to come to

New Zealand, as the Government

were looking at changing a clause to

the nuclear legislation, so I needed

to convince him to come to New

Zealand to speak and make sure

they didn’t change the legislation.

When he was in the navy, he carried

nuclear bombs so he knows what

he’s talking about and I wanted to

get him to share his information

with New Zealand. Soon I had

people sending me money to help

get him to New Zealand.

What do you think of Helen

Clark running for secretary general?

AT WORK: Dr Dewes marks

on a map the areas that

support a nuclear-free New

Zealand.

I think go Helen. I watched the

debate she was in recently and

thought she did really well. She has

the knowledge and experience for

the job and I think she would do

really well at it.

What are you setting your sights

on for the future?

Robert and I are trying to wind

down a bit now, that’s easier said

than done though. I would really

like to be able to spend more time

with my four grand-children, too.

Christ’s students

have money

on their mind

CHRIST’S COLLEGE is among

six schools to make it through to

the finals of a national monetary

challenge.

The team will compete in the

final of the Reserve Bank’s 15th

Monetary Policy Challenge in

Wellington on Thursday.

The challenge is designed to increase

students’ understanding of

monetary policy by asking them

to assess economic conditions

and make a prediction for the Official

Cash Rate decision.

Christ’s will compete against

Auckland’s Macleans College,

Auckland Grammar School and

King’s College, as well as Waikato

Diocesan School for Girls and

Scots College, Wellington, in the

final.

Each team will have to make an

oral presentation in the final.

The winning team will receive

$2500 for their school and each

student in the winning team will

also receive prizes worth $500.

They would also be invited

back to the Reserve Bank on

August 11 to attend the Monetary

Policy Statement media conference,

meet the Reserve Bank governor

Graeme Wheeler and to see

aspects of the financial markets.

Auckland’s King’s College took

out last year’s challenge.

Final countdown for SCIRT programme

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls

is now 92% complete and will finish in December.

Almost 80% of our repair programme is focused on the city’s underground

pipe networks.

SCIRT has replaced 715km of pipes – the distance of a return trip between

Christchurch and Dunedin. These pipes are now invisibly doing their important job

below ground.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• Fixing the Northern Relief, one of Christchurch’s biggest wastewater pipes running

through Fendalton, Merivale and St Albans is more than halfway through and will be

completed at the end of the year.

• Essential wastewater repairs at the western end of Aikmans Road in Merivale have

begun and will be completed in the next month.

• Ongoing repairs to the wastewater networks in Fendalton, Strowan, Papanui and

Bryndwr are due to finish in September this year.

• Your support is helping us to get the job done, thank you from the SCIRT team.

Injuries fail to stand in model’s path

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A NEAR miss from being

paralysed has encouraged

a Papanui High School

student to make most of

her opportunities and try

her hand in the modelling

scene.

Michaelee-Jayne McDonald,

16, won the Portfolio

Model Search 2016 out of 80

entries.

Each contestant sent in a

photo of themselves from

Facebook or Instagram.

The winner was selected by

a panel of judges from the

Portfolio Model Agency.

Michaelee-Jayne, who had

always been interested in

modelling, said she tried out

for the competition because

she wanted to make the

most of her opportunities.

The keen surfer’s perspective

on life completely

changed last year after an

accident nearly left her

paralysed.

“I was at Sumner and I

was surfing up to the beach

to get a drink and I forgot I

was about 30cm deep and

I dived off my board headfirst,”

she said.

The accident caused her to

break her jaw, nose and have

about 80 internal stitches.

She said the doctors had

told her she was lucky not to

be paralysed. The accident

had opened up her mind to

getting the most out of life.

But in spite of the scare,

Michaelee-Jayne still enjoys

surfing when she can and

hopes to edge her way into

surf and general sports’

modelling.

Not only does Michaelee-

Jayne surf, she plays competitive

touch rugby and

netball for her school.

On top of her sports

development, she is taking

all science options at school

in the hope of becoming an

anaesthetist or mechanical

civil engineer.

The modelling competition

was for aspiring models

aged between 14-21.

Michaelee-Jayne, along

with several other finalists,

were awarded a contract

with the city’s premier modelling

agency.

Agency director Mel

Radford Brown said the

standard was high and

the agency was glad to

have met the nine finalists

for the competition last

week.

Mrs Radford Brown described

Michaelee-Jayne as a

stunning natural beauty.

“She just stuck out a mile

away and I think the public

will really love her, too,” she

said.

While Michaelee-Jayne is

new to the modelling scene,

she said she is a confident

person, enjoys having her

photo taken and is keen to

learn more.

She said to anyone else

wanting to try modelling to

give it a go.

“Don’t hold yourself

back, as cliche as it sounds

. . . don’t worry about what

other people think,” she

said.

HEALED: After a

surfing accident

which nearly left

near paralysed,

Michaelee-Jayne

McDonald has fully

recovered and has

been scouted by

the Portfolio Model

Agency.

SCHOOLS

Brave girls shed hair

Ten brave Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

students took part in the Leukaemia

& Blood Cancer New Zealand’s

signature fundraising event, Shave for

a Cure.

Four girls shaved their heads while

six had their ponytails chopped off to

raise money for the charity.

They aim was to raise $2000, and so

far they have $1597 in the bank.

A spokeswoman said the school

is very proud of the girls who have

shown great bravery for a fantastic

cause.

LBC is the national charity

dedicated to supporting patients and

their families living with a blood

cancer or a related blood condition.

#shaveforacurenz fundraising

contributes towards patient support

programmes, research, awareness,

and advocacy.

NO FEAR: Hilary Royds (left) had her ponytail cut off while Luka Simmers

and Jemima Seddon-Smith (bottom right) went for the full head shave

to raise funds for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.

FUNDRAISING: Papanui High School students raised more than $1000 at their annual

Carnival Day recently. Their fundraising efforts over a week totalled more than $1100

for the DARE program. A school spokesperson said they would like to thank everyone

involved in the day, which included a massive effort by the student council.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | JULY 2016

February 2016

earthquake

response

With each natural disaster, EQC has increasingly listened

to customer feedback to improve how it works, says

EQC February 2016 Event Manager, Jayne Lapin.

“For the February 2016 earthquakes we are emailing a

survey to customers to complete two weeks after their claim

resolution to gauge potential areas for improvement.

To date, most customers have said their experience of the

new EQC process was positive or very positive,” she said.

EQC has taken a different approach to finalising the 13,985

claims lodged by customers following the Canterbury

earthquakes of 14 and 29 February, 2016, and the

aftershocks through March and June. To date EQC has paid

over $7.8 million to customers for damage claims.

EQC is reverting back to cash settlements as there is no

managed repair programme. EQC aims to complete

assessments for these events sooner, where possible,

using a claims management approach that EQC customers

helped design. EQC aims to resolve all claims for these

2016 Christchurch events by the end of December.

“One way to achieve this is by phoning customers to get all

the relevant information up front, before conducting

assessment. For many claims, damage assessment is done

over the phone. At its heart is the drive to make EQC easier

to do business with,” Miss Lapin says.

This differed from the 2010/2011 Canterbury claims, largely

because earthquake damage incurred in 2016 quakes was

minor. Customer payments are averaging $1,000 to $5,000

per claim. Only two claims were up to $50,000, and no

claims to date have gone over the EQC cap.

Seismic monitoring on Mt Ruapehu

Marking

GeoNet’s 15th

birthday

A message from Dr Hugh Cowan,

General Manager Reinsurance,

Research and Education

This month, GeoNet is celebrating its

15th anniversary. Most Cantabrians will be

familiar with the GeoNet app which provides

instant information about quakes and

volcanic activity.

GeoNet uses a network of over 600 sensors

across New Zealand to detect, analyse and

respond to earthquakes, volcanic activity

and other geological hazards. It was

established in 2001 as a collaboration

between EQC as investor and GNS as

technical manager.

Over the years, GeoNet has been recognised

internationally as at the leading edge of

natural hazards monitoring, which is a

significant bonus for New Zealand given the

dynamic nature of our region.

Canterbury’s proximity to the Alpine Fault

means that it has a large number of sensors.

The start of the Canterbury earthquake

sequence triggered further expansion of this

network, ultimately making the February

2011 earthquake one of the most

comprehensively recorded earthquakes in

urban history.

The quantity of GeoNet data has delivered

significant benefits for Canterbury, not least

in enabling decisions relating to building

reconstruction, engineering, the behaviour

of the land, and reinsurance to be informed

by science.

Such a wide range of applications in

Canterbury exemplifies the benefits of EQC’s

investment which requires GeoNet to make its

data publicly and freely available. GeoNet’s

growing and diverse community of users

extends well beyond EQC and GNS. Land

surveyors, airline pilots, power and water

companies and local government all use

GeoNet data in different ways.

EQC is proud to have maintained such a

long-term and successful partnership with

GNS, providing GeoNet with around $12m

a year. Late last year, we committed funding

through to 2021 as part of our research and

education programme.

EQC awarded

costs from

Action Group

The Earthquake Commission welcomes

the High Court’s recent costs decision

which orders the EQC Action Group to pay

costs of $4,237 to EQC.

The costs decision was issued following the

discontinuation of the Action Group’s

declaratory judgment application. The Action

Group sought a series of declarations in

relation to the obligations of the Commission

under the EQC Act.

Chief Executive Ian Simpson says the costs

decision reaffirms EQC’s position that

litigation was an unnecessary way to address

the specific issues concerning the Action

Group members’ claims.

Mr Simpson says that EQC remains completely

focussed on settling outstanding claims in

Canterbury including those of EQC Action

Group members. “Any customer can request a

review of their individual claim if they believe

EQC has missed earthquake damage

sustained to their home, if they don’t agree

with the proposed repair strategy, or if they

believe the settlement amount is incorrect.

The process for this is detailed on our website

and EQC continues to work with our

customers so they receive what they are

entitled to and have their claims resolved.”

Customers wanting to have their claim

reviewed can call 0800 326 243 (0800

DAMAGE) or email info@eqc.govt.nz or visit

www.eqc.govt.nz/about-eqc/makecomplaint.

In such situations you should

provide us with details supporting your

request for a claim review, together with any

information you have obtained in support of

your request.

Support agencies

EQC continues to work with customer advisory

agencies to progress the settlement of customer claims,

and answer customer queries.

Residents can continue to be supported through:

• Residential Advisory Service, 0800 777 299

• Canterbury Earthquake Temporary Accommodation

Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) land

damage settlement based on Diminution of Value.

The 90-minute meetings will feature:

Big win for Boys’ High

SPORTS

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School had a bonus-point win

after crushing Rangiora High

School in the 13th round of the

UC Championship.

On Saturday, Christchurch

BHS made light work of

Rangiora, piling on the points

in a one-sided 83-13 win. The

team also handed Bob Letiu

and Sam Caldwell first XV

debuts.

This puts Christchurch BHS

just two points behind competition

front runner’s, Christ’s

College.

Christ’s were impressive

against third-place Shirley Boys’

High School, running in five

tries to topple last year’s grandfinalists

33-10.

While the race for top spot

between Christ’s and Christchurch

BHS is one to watch, the

battle for the final two play-off

spots is wide open between

eight teams.

Just four competition points

separate third from 10th position,

with two rounds remaining.

St Andrew’s College and St

Bede’s College are both looking

to finish in the top four. They

both won on the weekend.

St Bede’s beat rival’s St

Thomas of Canterbury College

22-12.

St Bede’s are now three points

off the final play-off spot. They

will have to get the job done

on the road, when they travel

to Burnside High School and

Marlborough Boys’ College to

finish the round-robin.

St Andrew’s moved closer to

the top four with a 51-15 win

over bottom of the table Roncalli

College on Saturday.

The run into the play-offs

couldn’t be more difficult for

St Andrew’s. They host Christchurch

BHS this weekend

before playing Christ’s.

AUTO CENTRE PAPANUI

Papanui business a

beacon for motorists

The bright yellow building in Bellvue avenue, papanui, just around the

corner from papanui road has been a welcoming beacon for motorists

since 1997.

66 Bellvue Avenue, Papanui

Phone 03 352 0083

NOR’WEST NEWS

Now operatiNg as aa auto Centre

papanui, the business began life in 1997

in the capable hands of owner Colin

Downes and his wife Linda as Bellvue

tyres and incorporating the aa Lube

franchise.

“The business grew from there,”

says Colin, who has now racked up an

impressive 45 years in the industry. This

has included running a workshop for

20 years and managing an aa Service

Centre.

The aa auto Centre papanui workshop’s

two qualified technicians, Max and Brent,

and the apprentice Mathew, provide the

full spectrum of mechanical repairs and

servicing. This includes all mechanical

work, some diagnostic work, suspension

work, cam belt replacement, brake checks

and repairs, lubes, aa batteries, antifreeze

testing and woF.

Free written quotes are provided if

required, and courtesy cars are available

so customers can carry on with their daily

life while their vehicle is in the workshop.

Bellvue tyres still operates from the

site. Specialising in the highly regarded

HanKook tyres, they cater for all tyre

needs including high performance and

4wD, and tyre repairs.

“we are a one-stop shop for all

motoring needs,” says Colin. “we have

built up a business and a loyal customer

base because we believe in looking after

the customer, and in doing it once and

doing it right. That’s the most important

thing because today’s cars are expensive

to repair.

“our technicians are also long-standing.

Max has been with us for 17 years, Brent

11 years and Mathew four and a half

years. our office administrator Vicky has

been with us for six and a half years too,

so they all know our customers well and

the customers know them.”

aa auto Service and repairs is a family

business too, with Colin’s daughter andrea

having worked on the administration side

for 17 years. Now having decided to step

back and enjoy semi-retirement, Colin

is passing some of the responsibility for

running the business on to andrea, who

will play her role in keeping this successful

operation running smoothly.

Colin Downes and daughter Andrea keep it in the family.

• AA Auto Papanui can handle any of your car’s tyres, WOF or

servicing needs

• Quality HanKook tyres are available from Bellvue Tyres on the

PAPANUI HIGH SCHOOL

NEWSLETTER

Greetings, Tena Koutou Katoa,

We are now moving into the second half of the year, and

our students have been doing incredibly well. We have

much to celebrate and to be proud of. This newsletter will

give you a glimpse of what has been taking place, and

showcase a few of our many successes.

Firstly I would like to acknowledge two key events that

took place last term:

Open Night - In May the school held its annual Open

Night. We are very grateful that approximately 1200

people from our wider community took the opportunity to

visit our school, to speak to people, to see the quality of

our resources available, and to see what makes Papanui

High School such a wonderful place for students to learn.

80 student guides and over 250 student helpers in subject

areas, along with the staff, supported the evening. We

received exceptionally complimentary feedback, with

particular reference to the student input on the evening. I

will be looking forward to welcoming all new students and

their families/ whānau to our school next year.

Conference Day - I would like to sincerely thank our

parents, whānau, and caregivers for supporting the

annual Academic Counselling Conference Day. With

just over 90% attendance, the day was an outstanding

success. Having an opportunity to discuss students’

academic progress, and identifying the steps that can

be taken to support and improve their achievement, is

critical to their ongoing success. The Conference Day is

one distinct opportunity when all three parties can actively

work together to share a common goal. Over the last four

years, student achievement has steadily increased. As a

school we are committed to the continuation of this trend.

Our goal is to ensure all students have the opportunity

to achieve to the best of their ability, and ultimately gain

qualifications that underpin their transition to further study

or employment.

Our area of Christchurch is a vibrant and growing one.

Our aim is to be the focal point of education here, and

we are increasingly becoming a school of first choice.

We believe this is supported by giving students the

opportunity to study from an innovative and broad

curriculum that meets their individual needs. We allow for

a greater range and flexibility in subject choice including

the utilization of the secondary/tertiary interface. This

reinforces the philosophy underpinning personalised

learning, and is strongly supported by understanding our

students’ interests, passions, talents, and ultimately, their

career aspirations.

The school highly values the connectedness of curricular

and co-curricular learning. We have a philosophical

understanding that the holistic development of the student

is critical to their individual success. All that we do here

is reinforced by positive relationships, an ethos of caring,

cultural responsiveness, inclusion, and high expectations

– what we call “Our Full Service Model”.

We understand that for effective learning to take place,

it has to be implemented in such a way that students will

be highly engaged. The school does this in a ‘forward

thinking’ way by creating learning environments that

allow our students to see value in what they do and

achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what we represent and we

demonstrate this by having young adults leave our school

as confident learners who have gained the appropriate

qualifications and social skills to become valued

contributing members of society.

We invite you to view our website, school charter, ERO

report, and/or contact the school for more information at

any time.

Principal

SENIOR FORMAL

The Papanui High School

Senior Formal was held

on Friday July 1, at the

Foundry, University of

Canterbury. Approximately

430 students and 70 staff

attended, sharing in a

wonderful sense of occasion.

The theme of an ‘Autumn Dream’ was realised through the hard

work of a 20 student formal committee led by Year 13 students

Johanna Adams and Maddy Colombus and presented in the form

of hundreds of fairy lights and woodland inspired decorations.

STAGE CHALLENGE SUCCESS

117 students were involved in

this year’s Stage Challenge at

the Horncastle Arena, where

our students competed against

14 other schools. Papanui’s

powerful performance about

recycling mobile phones to

prevent the decline of mountain

gorillas (Blood in our Hands),

was outstanding. It thrilled the audience and wowed the judges

earning them six Excellence Awards out of the nine categories,

and gaining second place overall. Congratulations to the staff

and students involved, for all their hard work and outstanding

achievement.

EMERGING LEADERS CONFERENCE

At the end of term we had the opportunity to take 15 of our Year 12

leadership team to the annual Christ’s College Emerging Leaders

Conference. The conference challenges students to put themselves

forward to consider what part they would play in the community,

and what skills and attributes are required for this engagement to

be worthwhile and successful. Students participated in a variety of

workshops

run by a range of

local, national,

and international

leaders. They were

also fortunate to

hear from James

Castrission and

Justin Jones, who

are two Australian

explorers who

constantly push

the boundaries

of human

endurance

CENTRAL OTAGO MUSIC TOUR

Approximately 45 Music

students (members of the

Concert Band, Jazz Band, Jazz

Ensemble), and staff, took part

in the Central Otago Music

Tour from 4th – 7th July. They

performed at Mountain View

High School Timaru, Arrowtown

Primary School, Wakatipu High

School, Mt Aspiring College,

Wanaka Primary School, and Cromwell College.

SPORTING SUCCESS

Congratulations to:

• Jade Taylor, Aidan Batt, Britney

Aldridge, and Juliet McLauchlan

who have all made the New

Zealand Oceania Karate Rep

team, and will travel to compete

in New Caledonia in September.

They will also be competing

in the New Zealand nationals

in Wellington, representing

Papanui High School in the

secondary schools’ competition.

• Goiteom

Gebremedihim,

who has been

selected as part of

the New Zealand

activities run by the Student Council

over the five days. Two key events

were Lollypop Love notes which

raised $1,000 for Canteen, and

several appointments over a few months

to complete, people are advised to get in

touch as soon as possible to ensure their

dentures are settled in by Christmas, Ryan

advises.

Patients can approach Dentures Plus

directly, who will either recommend a

dentist for teeth extraction or contact

the patient’s own dentist. The dentures

are made up before the dentist extracts

the teeth, as this helps the mouth heal

faster. The professional approach taken by

Ryan and his staff ensures that the whole

process of having dentures fitted goes as

smoothly as possible.

Ryan also advises that people with

existing dentures should have them

checked every two to three years to make

sure they are not starting to wear, which

could cause discomfort in the future. This

may not be noticeable to the wearer, Ryan

says, but a free, no-obligation check-up

will determine if the dentures need some

attention, or even replacing.

The team at Dentures Plus specialise

in all aspects of denture work – from

making and fitting for first-time wearers,

relining, which is done after the first few

months to make sure the new dentures

are fitting correctly, through to providing

dentures that clip on to implants, and full

replacement dentures.

They provide full follow-up care to

patients and also supply a range of

products for denture care. These include

denture cleaners, brushes and denture

baths for soaking the dentures. Ryan

recommends Caldent denture cleaner, as

it is non-abrasive and effectively removes

stains, calculus and plaque.

Dentures Plus, 396 innes Road, is

open Monday to Thursday 8am-5pm

and Friday 8am-2pm. to make an

appointment, phone 385 5517.

Ryan also advises that

people with existing

dentures should have

them checked every

two to three years sure

they are not starting

to wear, which could

cause discomfort

in the future.

home with her own young family to ‘grow

young minds’ in Christchurch too.

affordable and personalised childcare for

busy families who would dearly love their

children to have an ‘at home mum’ early

learning childhood experience .“This

option isn’t often possible for families

today for many reasons, but is so very

important for our little people” says

emma. “ My role is to work personally

with each family to find the best match

in an educator for them…I love helping

create these special relationships!”

Stems is fully licensed by the Ministry

PHIL'S NEW ALBUM

IS NEARLY HERE!

FOLLOWING on from his debut release, Stone & Wood,

Phil Doublet is set to release his second album, Endless

Highway.

"I can't tell you how exciting this is," exclaims Phil. "The new

album is nearly here, and the preparations for the album

launch marking its official release are underway."

Well recognised in country music circles both here and

overseas, Phil is an accomplished guitarist-vocalist who has

been developing his skills for almost 3 decades in concert,

studio and "just jamming around at home".

He has claimed many music awards over the years with his

most recent being Male Artist of the Year 2014 at the National

Country Music Awards.

A strong ambassador for original music, Phil is front man

for the regular local event, 'Songwriters in the Round'. Taking

place towards the end of each month at Alvarado's on Stevens

St, each round showcases three songwriters with acoustic

interpretations of their music.

Phil launches his new album Endless Highway at Kaiapoi

High School on Saturday 27th August

along with special guests The

Ranchsliders, Dani Rigby, and Lana

Doublet.

Tickets are available now exclusively

at Music Works, South City, Colombo

St. (cash only).
