used recycled materials to create a costume. About 15 children were

THE WORST young

offenders in the north-west

suburbs are part of a police

focus to get them back on

the straight and narrow.

The 10 youths targeted are

responsible for burglaries,

thefts, vandalism and graffiti,

intimidation and other

offending.

The operation, codenamed

Piper, is based

at the Papanui police

station and is aimed

at giving them opportunities

to break their

cycle of crime.

Piper is part of a

wider focus throughout

northern and eastern

suburbs to reduce youth

crime and as part of the

national goal to reduce it 25

per cent by June 2017.

Acting Sergeant Nick

Adcock said it was hoped

the operation would enable

the young offenders to break

their ties with a potential

life of crime.

Operation Piper is named

after the Pied Piper of Hamlin,

a 14th-century German

rat-catcher hired by a town

to lure rats away with a

magic pipe.

Police want the

example set with the

first few offenders to

have a luring effect on

others to break their

criminal ways.

“The idea is to

have a fluid list that

is always changing

as we engage with them

to try to break the cycle of

offending,” Acting Sergeant

Adcock (left) said.

Police will step up bail

checks, follow up breaches

of bail conditions and get

out and about with at-risk

youth to build relationships.

“For lower level offenders

towards the bottom of the

list we will do all we can to

get them back on the right

path. Those towards the top

will have similar opportunities

but we will resort to traditional

policing measures

if they are not complying,”

he said.

Sociologist and gang

expert Jarrod Gilbert said it

was an “incredibly” positive

move.

“Recidivism rates in youth

are really poor, so if this can

reduce re-offending, which,

in turn, will mean less

victims and less expense,

well that is the definition of

win-win,” he said.

Concerns over traffic increase

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS NEAR a major

Avonhead land development

say a predicted 20,000 more

vehicle movements a day could

ruin their quality of life.

The Avonhead Community

Group says they are concerned

about the “huge impact” traffic

could have once a 24ha site on

the corner of Memorial Ave and

Russley Rd is developed.

Traffic modelling completed

by Memorial Ave Investments

Ltd, the primary owner of the

block being developed, showed

an increase of 28,818 vehicles

per day in the area.

This was based on a

supermarket, retail, offices and

visitor accommodation being

built.

Those rates were reviewed by

consultants on behalf of the city

council and accepted as being

appropriate for the site.

It would add to the 16,098

vehicles that already use

Memorial Ave each day

and 28,000 which use Russley

Rd.

“We support development

but not at the sacrifice of our

quality of life,” said Professor

S.S Bagchi, Avonhead

Community Group chairman.

The land was re-zoned from

rural to an industrial park

zone in June, as part of the

district plan, allowing a range

of industrial, commercial,

office, retail, and travellers’

accommodation.

The development is split into

six sections, four owned by

MAIL, one by McVicar Timber

Group and the other by the

Commodore Airport Hotel.

Prof Bagchi said they did not

want to be confrontational,

but they had to protect their

neighbourhood.

He said the group will

be watching carefully any

applications for resources

consent.

“We will speak with city

councillors, community board

members, infrastructure,

environment and transport

committee members, or who

ever to make our point,” he

said.

The section owned by

McVicar Timber Group comes

under the Runway Protection

Act and is subject to strict

conditions on what the land can

be used for.

The McVicar group contested

the Act in the High Court on

September 20, and a judge has

reserved his decision until a

later date.

A fire spokesman said they were

on-site for about 20 minutes dealing

with the small fire. There were no

CORRECTION

Last week, Nor’West News reported

in an article “Call for car parking

charge” that extending the Jellie

Park Recreation and Sport Centre

was rejected by a city council

committee. This was incorrect. In

a management plan, there is an

area defined as a possible car park

extension if required in the future.

Nor’West News apologises for the

error.

Issues that matter in the Waimairi Ward

With voting in local elections coming to a close on October 8, Nor’West

News is asking candidates their views on topical issues within the

community. Three candidates live inside the ward and three do not.

We asked what are the biggest issues residents in the Waimairi Ward

have brought to the attention of the candidates while they’ve been

campaigning?

Raf Manji: Waimairi

Ward city council

candidate

The two main issues in

the ward are increased

traffic movements and

independent hearings panel decisions

on land re-zoning. Both are

connected, with the main traffic

concerns focused on the Avonhead

Rd connection to the proposed

Memorial Ave Investments Ltd

site, which has now been re-zoned

for development. The community

board will need to look closely at

how to manage any increased traffic

movements there. We are still

waiting on the outcome of recent

appeals over the independent hearings

panel decision on the northwest

review area. The community

has put in a lot of work on these

issues and is hopeful of a productive

outcome.

Elections 16

Anthony Rimell: Waimairi Ward

city council candidate

Stewart Henry and I have been

door-knocking in the ward for three

months. We’ve heard about concerns

over water quality, roading, and bus

routes. However, the most significant issue

raised in the ward has been the proposed

industrial developments on Memorial Ave

(the MAIL site) and on Hawthornden Rd

(NWRA3). People have repeatedly identified

the impact on traffic safety around schools,

water quality and the ward’s infrastructure if

these large scale industrial projects proceed

unmodified. For me, these and similar large

scale projects, need to be measured against

three ‘goods’. Is it good for the environment, is

it good for our city and is it good for our local

community? As I’ve spoken to people in the

ward, they have been fully supportive of my

approach. For them, these projects meet none

of these ‘goods tests’. If I’m elected, that’s a key

view I’ll be raising at the city council table.

Lewis Winn: Waimairi Ward community board candidate

The Waimairi Ward in western Christchurch consists of the suburbs

of Avonhead, Russley, Burnside and parts of Ilam. It is a mix of suburbs

developed in the 1960s through to the present day and consists

primarily of single family homes and semi-detached dwellings, surrounded

by gardens.

The biggest issues for residents of the Waimairi Ward are water quality and

development of the rural-urban fringe. The area has long been popular with

families due to its quality schools, parks and other facilities, and pleasant, safe

environment. Any development within the ward must maintain its existing

residential character. Keeping our aquifers free from contaminants is also

important priority. The city council must work with Environment Canterbury,

residents and developers to ensure our water is kept pristine.

Sam MacDonald: Waimairi

Ward community board

candidate

Throughout the campaign, there

have been two key issues raised

with me. The first is the water

quality and the reluctance to have it chlorinated.

The feedback I’ve received has

been overwhelmingly in favour of keeping

our water chlorine-free, so it’s pleasing

to see the city council work quickly to

resolve this issue. The second is around

the development of available land within

our community. Resident concerns on

this range from traffic and parking issues

through to the impact on local amenities.

I’ve said throughout this campaign, and

most recently at the Avonhead Community

Group’s public meeting, that my role

is to represent your views, and work to

ensure the city council protects our local

interests.

Shirish Paranjape: Waimairi

Ward community board

candidate

To be factual, my interaction with

residents during door-knocking

and other meetings has shown

that there are two principal issues. The first

issue relates to re-zoning of land, specifically

two land-blocks – NWRA area three

block B and the so-called MAIL site, and

all the related concerns of traffic, parking,

noise, water supply and sewage, loss of

tranquility, impact on house prices and so

on. These aspects are discussed in detail

on Avonhead Community Group’s website.

The other more recent issue is about

the potential risk to the water supply in

north-west Christchurch, and whether

it should be chemically-treated. This has

gained prominence due to the happenings

at Havelock North. The city council has

decided to fast-track the planned upgrade

of the water supply system, while continuing

to test the water daily.

Toy library needs new home

• By Andrew King

THE PAPANUI Toy Library

may have to close if a new site

isn’t found for it to relocate into.

The well-used library is facing

a bleak future after news that

its current premises at 472

Cranford St will be demolished

by the end of the year due to

earthquake damage.

Once it receives the notice

to vacate the site, which is

privately-owned, it will have

four weeks to clear the building.

Secretary Natalie Sisson said

finding a new premise that could

house the toys for an affordable

price is proving difficult.

“It would be a great loss to

the community, especially in

these times where we provide

an affordable option for families

who cannot always afford

toys for their children to learn

through play,” she said.

The service is used by about

100 members. It has been in

operation since 1993 and is

open to parents on Wednesday

evenings and Saturday

mornings.

Bishopdale resident Sean

Clifford said his family use the

library a lot and it is a great asset

for the community.

“We are able to come down and

SPACE NEEDED: Sean Clifford (left) and his son Leon visit the Papanui Toy Library regularly and

say it is a valuable asset in the community.

PHOTO: ANDREW KING

get a few different toys every

couple of weeks, which is good

because the kids get bored of

them quickly,” he said.

“It would be a real shame if it

was to close. Hopefully they can

find somewhere to move to.”

The city council has suggested

the library could move into

the former Bishopdale Plunket

rooms in the Bishopdale Village

Mall – but it needs earthquake

repairs before it can be occupied.

The Plunket rooms were

closed in July 2013 due to

earthquake damage.

However, Ms Sisson said they

will have to see if the space is

suitable for their needs before

they can commit.

“They do require some

earthquake repairs and it may

be a bit small for us . . . we need

about 100 sq m,” she said.

Police operation

•From page 1

Youth crime, especially young

people hanging around the

Northlands Shopping Centre,

Papanui High School and the

Papanui Library (below), has

been a focus for police and the

city council for some time.

In September the city council

turned off a controversial a

“mosquito device” that was used

to repel fighting youths who

were intimidating library staff

and visitors.

It had been installed at the

library in 2014 and emitted an

irritating, high-pitched sound,

audible only to children and

teenagers, to deter loitering near

the front door.

​Promoting sustainability

Looking

after the

environment

is a key

component

now in high

school’s and

Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School is no different.

Principal Sandra Hastie

writes this week’s opinion

piece on what they are

doing in the school to make

them clean and green.

The best way to predict the

future is to design it. So said R.

Buckminster Fuller, a renowned

20th-century inventor and

visionary born in Massachusetts

in 1895.

Mr Fuller dedicated his life to

making the world work for all of

humanity and now more than

100 years later, we know a major

part of that concept, is sustainability.

In 2015, Rangi Ruru Girls’

School adopted a sustainability

philosophy which has underpinned

a number of key initiatives.

It’s great coming up with

ideas but the important part is

putting them into practice, and

continue to develop them.

Art teacher Kate Rivers is our

director of sustainability and she

leads a team of staff and students

in promoting sustainability within

the school.

Each year we appoint a student

head of sustainability, a role

taken up with gusto this year by

Annelise Thompson.

At the start of 2016, we initiated

our waste management

plan and use colour coded bins

– green for compost, blue for

reused, yellow for recycling and

red for landfill.

Six months on and we have

reduced the amount of waste

going to landfill by 56 per cent.

We were previously producing 21

cu m of waste a week, now we are

down to eight.

Sustainability is school-wide

and everybody is involved and

engaged. It’s about crossing the

curriculum for the girls as well as

integrating with our well-being

programme.

For example, our well-being

focus in term three was on respect.

There was much thoughtprovoking

discussion in every

class, about how we can respect

the environment.

The integration across the curriculum

is seamless and our girls

automatically start looking at

how the topic of study relates to

sustainability; it becomes second

nature.

We could not achieve all we

do without our fabulous sustainability

executive team.

Thank you to staff Kate Rivers,

Dr Catherine Low, Philippa

McIntyre, Pam Schreurs and

students Annelise Thompson,

Isabella Gregory, Emilie Aitkin,

Sarita De Gouw, Lucy Simpson

and Pia Petersen for your hard

work and passion.

We asked readers should

motorists be charged

for parking at Jellie Park

Recreation and Sports

Centre. They write

Lee Richards, of Strowan – I

would oppose the introduction

of being charged for car parking

at Jellie Park as I am a high user

of this facility and riding my bike

there is not feasible.

As a parent of two boys who

play water polo and swim and

train at Jellie Park I already pay

the city council a huge amount

of money for the use of the only

deep water pool in Christchurch.

I am there several times a

week dropping off, picking up

and watching my children as late

as 9.30pm sometimes.

I wonder if Bridget Williams

has considered this, does she

have children who use the facility

frequently, does she pay the

exorbitant prices that the city

council charge us because they

can, because we have no other

choice.

My children swim up to 3km at

a session I don’t think they need

to bike ride on top of that, especially

late at night. Why should

we be penalised for driving our

car, that is my choice.

Yes, I agree parking is an issue,

however, if they are prepared to

let us park on the grass during

the summer months why don’t

they just turn the whole front in

to car parking. I was unaware of

NOR’WEST NEWS

the apparent public consultation

on this, sure I try and park in the

car park, however, if there are no

parks available I park on the road

and walk in, no big deal.

Joan Mahon, of Riccarton –

We don’t think people attending

Jellie Park should have to pay for

car parking. I am 77-years-old

and attend aqua classes five days

a week.

Our classes are full of mainly

older people who enjoy the pool

and gym, some travel many

kilometres to Jellie Park many

recovering from surgery and the

companionship is most important.

Not all of us are gym bunnies

or teenagers or belong to a

cycling group.

Have a think about who, over

the years, have paid rates so that

Jellie Park could serve our community

not everyone can ride a

bike or is on a bus route.

I am surprised that the community

board has nothing better

to do than target the people who

get out and do something to keep

fit and healthy.

Would Don Babe and Bridget

Williams be happy to see their

Nana and Grandad on a bike

dressed in lycra?

They would be better off coming

up with ideas about real

issues like the graffiti or encouraging

young people to walk to

school rather than being dropped

at the school gate.

of the car park there. I am most

certainly against any charges for

the use of the car park.

This is a fitness facility so why

can’t people walk a short distance

if they have to park on the street.

If a patron is early enough for

their particular session a car

park can usually be found in

close proximity.

The real bottlenecks occur

when there is a bulk booking for

a length of time, which can be

almost all day, such as a swim

meet. These sessions usually

commence quite early and

completely fill available parking.

Where bulk bookings are

made with the expectation that

parking for people and possible

equipment is available charges

for this is, I believe, appropriate.

There is also the facility for elite

sport at the rear of the complex

and this too can cause a block.

Most of the members would

stay for approximately 1-1/12

hours. Another point, paying

for a parking spot does not

automatically provide a parking

space when it is wanted. The

facility is popular but as other

facilities are developed or fixed

the patronage will drop as people

will use facilities nearer their

home.

There appears to be ample

parking between the hours of

11.30am and 4pm.

Steve Winter, of Sockburn

– The car park at Jellie Park is

not under pressure weekday

mornings, throughout the year

when a significant proportion of

users are elderly pensioners who

must use their cars to get there.

Don’t penalise them for

wanting to remain active in

what is also an important social

occasion for many.

In actual fact, for parts of

the day, they are possibly the

significant revenue stream for

the facility. I swim, with up to

three of my elderly friends three

to four weekday mornings each

week.

I drive from Sockburn, have

angina, I am a pensioner and

make the effort because it is

important to me and affordable.

Car parking has never been a

problem. Let’s have a sensible

and workable solution.

Alan Tunnicliffe, of

Avonhead – As a cyclist, bus

rider and walker I would not

expect to be rewarded for being

sensible about transport. On

the other hand as a motorist

I would expect parking to be

free as it is at other city council

facilities.

However, I can see that

charging for parking might

force a few people to consider

using other means of transport

to and from Jellie Park.

Whether parking is charged

for or free the car park will get

full at peak times so the “first in,

first served” principle will apply

and the overflow will make use

of nearby streets.

We asked readers if the

closure of the Westpac

bank will have a negative

affect on businesses in the

Bishopdale Village Mall.

They write

Jill Robinson, of Bishopdale

– I believe the closure of Westpac

at Bishopdale will affect the mall,

and is short sighted of Westpac.

Many people used to shopping

at Bishopdale will miss the

convenience of being able to pop

in to the bank.

And the moving of Mitre 10

has not helped the revitalisation

of our mall.

I hope a progressive retailer,

selling quality goods moves into

the space they have vacated.

Hopefully, with the new library

being built, Bishopdale Village

Mall may shine again.

Incidentally, do you know

what is happening to the old

library? Is it being refurbished

for another use, pulled down or

what?

Anthony Rimell, of

Sydenham – For anyone who has

a passion to see the north-west

of our city thrive, this decision is

a major blow.

The impending closure of

the Westpac branch at the

Bishopdale Village Mall is of

tremendous concern to me.

Clearly, businesses need

to make sound commercial

decisions, but there is a deeper

impact on local communities

that needs to be weighed as well.

It’s not just rural communities

that suffer when banking services

are withdrawn. Suburban centres

suffer just as badly, as it draws

people away from their local

community.

The city council needs to

be proactive in supporting

suburban shops. Christchurch

is a city of villages, and walkable

neighbourhood shops that knit

our communities together.

Living the dream of telling stories

Emily Burns, 23, of St Albans, has had a whirlwind

year in musical theatre playing leading roles in

Mary Poppins and the second wife of Argentine

president, Eva Peron, in Showbiz Christchurch’s

recent production of Evita. She spoke to Georgia

O’Connor-Harding about those productions, her

dream role, and her love for composer Andrew

Lloyd Webber

Tell me about what this year has

been like for you?

I have loved this year. It started

off in the summer playing an

alternative for Mary Poppins

at The Court Theatre. Then I

jumped straight into Mamma

Mia! which was so much fun.

All of these roles in shows are

completely different. I am such

a theatre nerd and love tackling

every new role. Then I went to

Invercargill and was hosted by

the wonderful team down at

Invercargill Musical Theatre and

we put on Mary Poppins. It was

magical to be able to have Mary

myself . After that it was straight

into Evita and now I am going

to play the understudy of Elle

Woods for Legally Blonde for the

Court Theatre’s summer season

and an ensemble role. It will be

fun. chihuahuas, bull dogs and

lots of pink.

Do you have a favourite role

you have played this year?

Eva Peron definitely. She is just

something else. The journey of

her young self at 15 all the way

through to her premature death

at 33. I find her fascinating and

I love the fact she was a real

woman who made such an impact

on these people’s lives and

on Argentine history. It is one of

those roles I feel extremely lucky

to play.

What do you think of Eva

Peron as a person and the way

she was portrayed in the show?

It is interesting because

obviously in history and audiences

there is going to be divided

opinion about her. But people

always say she slept her way to

the top but she didn’t sleep her

way to stay at the top, you know,

she did a lot of good for the poor

descamisadoes. She managed to

build hundreds of orphanages

and schools, housing for people

STAR-IN-THE-MAKING: Emily Burns has had a whirlwind year

in musical theatre playing leading roles including Mary Poppins

and Eva Peron in Evita.

who never had that kind of

support before. She is incredibly

stubborn and a determined

woman that doesn’t back down.

And I take it you are a huge

fan of the composer of the show

Andrew Lloyd Webber​?

Oh, he has just got such a way

with music hasn’t he. Every time

I do a show of his it just surprises

me. There is so many hidden

gems in the music score that are

so powerful. I did Phantom of the

Opera with Showbiz Christchurch

last year and the first show

I ever did was Joseph and the

Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Andrew Lloyd Webber shows are

always a huge spectacle.

You have done the big shows?

LAWyerS

Yes, and I especially love when

Showbiz Christchurch does them

because they have these stunning

orchestras. There is something

about live music. We go downstairs

to warm-up in the pit

and the orchestra is just slowly

coming in and getting their

instruments tuned. That is one

of my favourite parts of the show

because I love coming down

with the musicians because we

kind of live in separate worlds in

the show.

Looking at all the reviews

in Evita, all the reviewers have

had positive things to say about

your performance. What do

you think of it all? Did you feel

like there was a bit of pressure?

The reviews were extremely

generous and so lovely. There

was a bit of pressure. As soon

as the show starts you have just

got to forget everything else and

focus and telling the story as

truthfully as you can. It is knowing

and trusting the work we put

in at rehearsals.

Would this be the most

challenging role you have

played?

Yes, 100 per cent. First up

the music is complex. It is

verging on opera on the fact

there isn’t much dialogue. So

everything said is sung.

through music

So for that to sound natural

and seem like a conversation.

The composer has to

do a lot of changing of the

keys, time signatures and

rhythms. It took me a long

time to feel comfortable in

that. On the technical side

of things there are a lot of

costume changes. There is

that whole added element

of am I going to make it

tonight and with the right

When you first got into

think you would be able to

make a full career out of

performing?

Oh, my gosh it was

definitely a dream that

felt very far away. It is just

taking baby steps. Having

the confidence in yourself

and working hard. I

never stop learning, I am

constantly researching and

practising.

Do you have a dream

role you would like to

play after doing big roles

already?

What actually got you

into theatre?

It is funny. I love Walt

Disney movies and ever

since I could talk I would

sit in front of the TV and

say the words. I would

watch TV so much I

would say the words of the

characters and sing all the

songs. That was kind of and

indicator to my parents

they should probably get

me some singing lessons

so it is more pleasant for

them.

Tell me about what

you like to do outside of

theatre?

Things I enjoy doing is

I love food and cooking.

I love going down to the

Christchurch Farmers

Market and stocking up

on lots of fresh food. I am

often making curries. I also

love op-shopping. In the

city there are lot of great

op-shops. I love TV shows

as well. There is some really

high quality programmes

coming up with some

incredible acting. I see it as

research-watching actors

do what they do best.

Is there anything you

try to advocate through

the performing arts?

The more people come

out and enjoy it. I know

it is hard in this day and

age to justify sometimes

a ticket to these kind of

shows. With the array of

entertainment we have at

our hands literally. I am

thankful for the amount

of people who come out to

the theatre and enjoy live

story-telling.

Native Plant

Destination

An increasing demand and interest

in native plants has resulted in the

expansion of The Native Plant Nursery

into Christchurch. Originally the Taupo

Native Plant Nursery, the company has

been growing steadily since 1961 when

it first began supplying native plants for

reserves, forests and national parks.

The Marshlands area of Christchurch

has long been associated with plants

and market gardens, so it is the ideal

venue for a niche business like the

Native Plant Nursery. With large scale

landscaping contracts, regeneration

projects and three nurseries

nationwide, expansion southwards has

brought 98 years of collective native

plant experience within the national

team to our doorstep.

Comprising a wholesale nursery

complex and a 10 acre property to raise

plants, the Native Plant Nursery is

basically a plant factory. As well as

mainstream natives, there is ample

scope to produce other plants of

interest and by growing on-site, the

home gardener reaps the benefit of

lower prices.

While best known for eco-sourced

natives, the nurseries are branching

out, literally, into edible varieties,

bedding plants and fruit trees. So

expect to see Heuchera and camellias

thriving alongside raspberry canes and

coprosmas!

In addition to developing a

flourishing native plant outlet in

Christchurch, the company’s other

long term goal is to become involved

in community education projects with

local schools and organisations.

So why not revisit the green zone of

Marshlands and discover a gardening

destination that’s new, natural and

native! For further information visit

SCHOOLS

Rewarding kindness

in the community

Breens Intermediate spent term three looking for

opportunities to “pay it forward” and recognise some of the

good sorts in the local community. Pupils volunteered their

time and skills to workplaces and community settings. Others

went out and cleaned up the local community and gifted

“random acts of kindness” to neighbours. Pupils invited “good

sorts” in for an afternoon tea and presented them with projects

which recognised the kindness they show towards others. The

term finished with an afternoon tea and music performance

for residents from Bethesda Retirement Home and an evening

market with food and entertainment for the school and wider

community.

The school has become

a regular at the national

tournament. They finished

second in 2014, but will be

looking to bounce back this year

after finishing outside the top

eight in the 16-team competition

last year.

The team has been a dominant

force in the local competition,

winning their sixth straight

Canterbury schools’ title in

August. They then went on to

finish fifth at the South Island

tournament, which qualified

them for nationals.

Their final preparation ahead

of the national championship

included a three-day training

camp last week, with the

school holidays allowing them

to dedicate the entire time to

netball.

St Margaret’s has a wealth of

experience guiding the team.

The girls’ face a tough draw in

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Southern Institute

of Technology

Ensuring a safe

work place

Monique VanRooyen is

a perfect example of how

the Southern Institute of

Technology (SIT) assists

full time workers to move

forward in their career.

Working in

administration at

SIT for nine years,

Monique jumped at the

opportunity to upskill

in her Administration

Management career with

the National Certificate

in Project Management

(Level 4) in June 2016.

The 18-week blended

delivery course not

only offered the content

she needed to take a

step forward, but its

flexible hours made both

studying and working

viable, she said.

“The biggest benefit

is being able to do the

course outside of work

hours and also the

fact that lectures are

fortnightly, which allows

time to complete each

assignment.”

Though only half way

through the Project

Management certificate,

she said it had already

increased her confidence

to talk in front of large

groups and had given her

Monique VanRooven

a better understanding of

business dealings.

“I enjoy the tutor’s

lecturing style, he has a lot of industry

based knowledge and experience in

this area which enables us to grasp the

concepts [of Project Management] a lot

easier.”

Monique said she would “definitely”

recommend the course to anyone

interested in a managing environment on

any level, especially those looking to excel

in their existing role.

LeARNINg fIRST aid is not only a

part of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to

the sports field?

Not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance

from a regular ambulance service. It is

therefore essential that you pick the right

first aid course to suit all of your activities –

both professional and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure

that they can deal with minor cuts and

superficial injuries, or the ability to perform

effective CPR. These skills can be achieved

on a course of eight hours duration and

would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to

a sports field either as a spectator or player

when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402

and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not

cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye

injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

New Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the

home. fatalities from leisure and sport are

not far behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

If you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

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

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

Looking after

your teeth

Visiting the dentist is often put off yet looking after our

teeth helps preserve them and assists our overall health.

Dr Keith Chiang has operated the Fendalton Dental

Surgery since relocating from the CBD in 2011. He has

special interest in complex oral surgical procedures and

intravenous sedation, whilst looking after his wonderful

patients with general dentistry skills.

Due to increased demand for cosmetic and geriatric

dentistry, Keith approached Dr Zohnia McNeill, an

experienced clinician with a proven clinical

track record, to join his team.

“Zohnia is a professional with extremely high standards

and is very precise; something her patients appreciate,

along with her relaxed friendly manner,” says Keith.

Zohnia and Keith will focus on their specific and

passion-driven dentistry niches. Zohnia will work on the

cosmetic side of the practice, looking after general checkups

and dentistry work including partial and full denture

work, root canal treatments, implant crowns, porcelain

crowns, bridges and veneers. Keith will concentrate on

his special area interest: surgical procedures including

impacted wisdom teeth, correction of soft and hard

tissue lesions, surgical implant placements, and providing

intravenous sedation where required.

Patients, who decide it is time to transition to dentures,

perhaps due to extensive tooth loss or long-term gum

disease, will benefit from both Zohnia and Keith’s skills.

Zohnia will make the new dentures then Keith will

surgically extract the teeth and deliver the dentures so

patients need not go elsewhere for this service.

The warm friendly team

welcomes you to come and

experience expert clinical care.

Working alongside Keith and Zohnia are two fully

qualified dental assistants, Helen and Megan with Aysha

on reception as the patient’s care co-ordinator.

The warm friendly team welcomes you to come and

experience expert clinical care.

Fendalton Dental Surgery is open Monday to Friday,

from 8.30am until 5pm, located at the high profile

Advanced Weight

Management Support +

GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD is the latest

in Natural Weight Management Support

to hit the market. It contains three well

researched herbal extracts in optimum

amounts to support weight management

as well as offer surprising benefits for good

health.

An extract of the purple rind of

Mangosteen contains an amazing

group of compounds called Xanthones.

Xanthones may support weight loss by

helping normalising a slow metabolism

(common as we age), improving digestive

function and nutrient absorption, acting

as a powerful appetite suppressant by

promoting synthesis of glycogen in the

body (With adequate levels of glycogen

the brain receives a signal to suppress the

appetite), increasing energy and activity

levels (but non stimulating) as well as

supporting fat metabolism. Xanthones also

offer amazing health support in other ways.

They contain a wide variety of vitamins

and minerals as well as some of the most

powerful antioxidant nutrients found

in nature that may help slow the aging

process, ward off degenerative diseases and

physical and mental deterioration.

East Indian Globe Thistle has been

shown to increase the levels of the

hormone adiponectin which encourages

food to be burned as energy rather than

stored as fat. When East Indian Globe

Thistle is combined with Xanthones weight

loss is potentiated as shown in an eight

week study of 100 people on a calorie

controlled diet with exercise where half the

participants took the combination of the

two herbs. Weight loss benefits, including

a reduction in hip and waist size were

significantly increased in the 50 people

using the combination of East Indian Globe

Thistle & Xanthones compared to those on

diet and exercise alone.

The third ingredient Garcinia Cambogia

is a source of hydroxycitric acid or HCA.

HCA can help burn fat for energy, help stop

the formation of fat from excess calories

in the diet, while reducing the appetite as

well as food cravings. It has become one of

the most popular weight loss supplements

for this reason. Garcinia Cambogia also

increases your serotonin levels which can

improve mood and sleep.

One of the big problems today is we

eat much more than we need. This excess

eating has been shown to lead to serious

health issues as well as a shorter life span.

GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD contains

three powerful natural ingredients to

support a healthy weight as well as the

potential to support improved body

function.

Third Aged Tours

Taking people aged over 50 on trips

around New Zealand and the world for

nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours

a brag book that Director Brenda Corby-

Yarrall says “businesses would give their

eye teeth for.’’

Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people

means I can operate the tour in a relaxed,

companionable manner. We have an

absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about

having fun.

Most of my trips are run annually

because they’re so popular, but I’m always

adding new destinations - like “Sicily, South

Italy & Vatican” + “Cuba”,

as people ask for them.

Brenda checks out all

accommodation before

booking it, and ensures

the party spends at least a

few nights at each place.

That way you don’t feel

like you’re living out of a

suitcase.

Many clients now have

made over 20 tours with

us, one has completed a

whopping 27 tours.

My clients tell me they

keep coming back because

of the size of the groups and our relaxed

manner. My motto is ‘There are no

strangers, only friends waiting to meet.’

We gather together for breakfast at

8.30am which sets us up for the day and

everybody thinks is a very civilised hour.

I organise incredible trips at incredible

prices. Look around, you can’t find better

for all we include.

Poor circulation is often caused by

inactivity of the leg muscles, due to age,

illness, sitting or standing long periods.

The heart pumps blood to all parts of the

body in order to:

• supply oxygen and nutrients to

every cell.

• keep the body temperature stable.

• remove waste from the body

Good blood flow is essential to nourish

cells, tissue and bone. It is critical for

wellbeing and energy.

When blood flow is restricted health

issues occur - cold feet and hands, swollen

ankles, cramps, numb feet, aching and

restless legs, abrasions and ulcers do not

heal

Boost circulation with any type of

movement, massage and stretching.

If strenuous exercise is impossible, try

Tai Chi or work feet and hands with an

Aircycle circulation booster while you sit in

Changes at the Russley Road/

Wairakei Road roundabout

News

NOR’WEST NEWS

From mid-October,* the layout of the

Russley Road/Wairakei Road roundabout will

be removed. Wairakei Road on the western

(airport) side of Russley Road will be closed.

While on the eastern side there will only be left

out from Wairakei Road onto Russley Road and

left in to Wairakei Road from Russley Road.

CITY

MEMORIAL AVENUE

ORCHARD ROAD

RUSSLEY ROAD

ROYDVALE AVENUE

CITY

HOW TO USE THE NEW LAYOUT

Underpass

WOOLDRIDGE ROAD

• To go north on State Highway 1 from Wairakei Road, turn

left from Wairakei Road onto State Highway 1 and do a

u-turn through the Memorial Avenue/Russley Road (SH1)

intersection (or large roundabout at present).

• If you are coming from the south on State Highway 1

and want to access Wairakei Road, do a u-turn around

the Harewood Road roundabout and then a left turn into

Wairakei Road, or make a turn right at Memorial Avenue

and use Roydvale Avenue.

As part of the upgrade of Russley Road, these changes are

necessary for traffic safety, as certain distances are needed

for traffic merging on and off the main road/highway.

Wairakei Road is too close to Memorial Ave for this to be

possible.

If you are travelling to/from the airport, please be

aware of the new layout and allow

EXTRA TRAVEL TIME as delays are possible.

More information on the Russley Road Upgrade can

be found at www.nzta.govt.nz/russley-road

SCHOOL SPIRIT: Rangi Ruru’s Dunvegan Clan perform at the term three singing

competition. ​

Rangi Ruru celebrates its

connection to Scotland

RANGI RURU Girls’

School delivered singing,

dancing and colour with

a healthy dose of fun at

their annual clan singing

competition before

heading off on holiday.

Dressed in clan colours,

students competed

to see which group

performed the best song,

choreographed to dance

moves.

“The only thing better

than singing is more

singing,” student Ella

Fitzgerald said.

Dunvegan Clan

won this part of the

competition with a

stunning performance.

They accumulated points

that will go towards the

final result at the end of

the year.

The 2015 Clan Trophy

holders are Braemar, who

won the title last year for

the first time in 44 years.

The performances were

judged by two guest judges

from Christ’s College and

two members of staff from

Rangi Ruru.

Clan co-ordinator

and year 13 dean Leigh

Allan said the concept

behind the clans is to form

connections between year

levels to foster community

spirit.

“It’s fun, colourful and

very, very loud,” she said.

“The clans compete in a

number of different events

during the year and clan

singing is definitely one

of the highlights. Girls get

to show their creativity

through music and they

really enjoy dressing up

and working together

and it is a great way to

celebrate the end of a very

busy term,” she said.

The clans, led by two

year 13 students, are made

up of girls from across

years 7 to 13.

They were named after

Scottish castles, including

Balmoral, Braemar,

Doune, Dunevegan,

Glamis and Stirling,

celebrating the school’s

Presbyterian heritage.

Trial an electric bike for free

THE CITY council

transport innovation

fund has approved an

eight-month project so

commuters can trial an

e-bike, for free, for two

weeks.

Transport policy planner

Nick Lovett said the

e-bike trial concept was

one of three projects to

win funding this year.

Electric bikes are

becoming increasingly

popular with commuters.

“People will be able to

get an e-bike, on loan,

for a free two-week trial.

This project’s goal is to

help you discover how an

e-bike could be a mode of

transport that’s right for

you, without having you

commit to buying one

at the onset,” Mr Lovett

said.

“E-Bikes are an example

of an emerging

transport technology we

don’t have a good understanding

of and getting

DIFFERENT TRAVEL: Commuters will be able

to trial an e-bike, for free, for two weeks from

November 1. ​

people to experience

them as a commuting

option gives us an insight

into how they might become

a mainstream mode

of transport in future. I’m

really excited about the

trials and what we might

learn from the user experience.’’

Action Bicycle Club

co-founder Ken Ching

will be running the

trial and said he wanted

people to take away a

fresh perspective on commuting.

“We want to give them

an informed experience

about e-bikes and to

encourage citizens

to engage in active

transportation that helps

reduce traffic congestion,

pollution and ultimately

improve the city for

people, not vehicles,” he

said.

The trial begins on

November 1 this year,

with four electric bikes

and one electric cargo

bike available for loan to

successful applicants.

LOCATED on the corner of Brougham

St and Waltham Rd, e Brougham is

one of Christchurch’s longest established

pubs. Downstairs there’s a warm,

friendly bar with adjoining Super

Liquor bottle store, while upstairs there’s

a marvellous function and event venue.

Mine hosts Pat and Ma Hodgson

have an exciting October planned.

“As well as continuing with our

regular Saturday Karaoke nights hosted

by Jenlins, we’re having ursday Blues

said Pat.

e Elevators - made up of Matt

Hall (vocals, guitar); Glen Jayet (drums,

vocals); and Dwanye Bennett (bass,

vocals) - have been rocking the

Christchurch music scene for well over

a decade and are also a popular act on

festival and event circuits across the

country. With a repertoire ranging from

blues through to classic rock and

beyond, these guys deliver, every gig.

Being a highly regarded

neighbourhood ‘local’, e Brougham

offers a good bar menu, great bar

specials, a courtesy van to guarantee

safe travel (just call the bar for

operating details), and is renowned for

their yummy pork bones and

watercress offered free to patrons on

Friday nights. For keen shots, there’s a

Darts Competition every Wednesday

night. Six teams compete for the title

and newcomers are welcome to jump in

a team and join the fun!

e Brougham is also excited to

announce that they will be hosting the

best in New Zealand pro wrestling at

the end of the month.
