A NEW $7.4 million pump station

will be built in Harewood to

replace a shallow well at risk of

contamination.

The city council will build the

pump station on the site of its

Harewood Nursery on Gardiners

Rd, with work hoped to begin in

February.

It will replace the previous Harewood

Pump Station, which would

be decommissioned as part of the

work.

It was less than 26m deep, taking

water from an unconfined aquifer,

which made it at risk of contamination.

The new pump station would also

provide for growth in the northwest

of the city, specifically the

Upper Styx residential greenfield

development area.

City council three waters and

waste planning and delivery manager

John Moore said the work

was part of its well replacement

programme.

He said the city council had an

agreement with the Ministry of

Health to decommission its shallow

wells in the north-west of the city by

June 30, 2018.

“The council has accelerated its

well replacement programme and

by March 2017 no shallow wells will

be used unless needed to provide

additional water for peak demand

during summer or for fire fighting. “

Once the Gardiners water supply

pump station was built, the well

replacement programme would be

complete and there would be no

need to use the shallow wells, he

said.

The new station would have two

wells, a suction tank and water

delivery pumps within a new

building, emergency generator and

pipelines to connect to the existing

water supply network, he said.

It is expected to be completed by

June 2018.

IN TODAY’S paper we

celebrate our young people who

have worked so hard over the

past year, not just academically,

but in culture and sports.

Pages 6, 7, 8 have the prizegiving

lists for St Bede’s College,

Christchurch Boys’ High School

and, in the coming weeks, we

will also publish results of other

high schools in the area.

Congratulations to all

students who have been recognised.

Meanwhile, over at Selwyn

House School (page 3), they are

taking learning up a notch by

teaching mechatronics to all pupils

from pre-school to year 8.

Basically, that means a combination

of science, engineering,

mathematics, with a bit of robotics.

Very impressive indeed.

Looking for the next IT genius

• By Andrew King

SELWYN HOUSE School

believes it could have the next

Mark Zuckerberg in their

midst.

From next year, all pupils

from the pre-school to year 8

will be taught mechatronics.

It brings together science,

technology, engineering,

mathematics and a bit of art to

teach pupils the basics of how

robotic devices operate.

Mr Zuckerberg invented

Facebook in 2004 from

his dormitory at Harvard

University in the United States.

Year 7 pupil Emma Cawood

has really taken to the

programming and said it is a

huge opportunity for her.

“It allows me to be creative

because there is really no limit

to what we can do. It has helped

me with more knowledge

in math and is really fun,” she

said.

Robotic and coding teacher

Liz Fairhall said there is a

massive need for women in

information technology and

this would provide a great

pathway.

“It really is going to push

these girls into seeing that IT is

an option as a career for them,”

she said.

“Pupils are so lucky today

with the technologies available

to them and we want them to

be given the opportunity to

make the most of it,” she said.

The goal of the programme is

to teach the students a gradual

progression of skills during their

time at school until they have

enough knowledge to build from

scratch their own gadget in year 8.

Mechatronics teacher Simon

Christie said it will answer the

question commonly asked by

pupils – why do I need to know

this?

“Allowing pupils to put

together a project using math,

science and engineering shows

them why they have spent time

learning about those subjects,”

he said.

They will be setup in a

technology hub, known as ‘The

THE

FUTURE:

In Brief

BOTTLE STORE PETITION

A petition to stop a liquor licence at

2A Trafford St, Harewood, has attracted

1100 signatures and is ready

to be presented at an up-coming

hearing. The date of that hearing,

which will determine if the licence

can be granted, has not yet been

determined. Public submissions objecting

or supporting it closed today.

Residents Colin Fussell and Aaron

Bree knocked on doors, informing

their neighbours and others on the

surrounding streets about the plan.

They said they’ve received an overwhelming

response. The applicant of

the licence said he will not pull the

application and will await the result

of the hearing.

ROAD CLOSURE

Francis Ave will be closed between

property numbers two and 11 for the

next two weeks while earthquakedamaged

wastewater infrastructure

is repaired. Parking on the street will

not be available immediately next to

the work area and ‘no parking’ cones

will be in place.

WORK STARTS

Work has started on the Northern

Corridor. The new section of the

northern motorway will be built

to the east of Belfast, between the

Waimakariri River and Cranford

St, to provide relief for commuters

travelling into the city. It is expected

to be finished by 2020.

Dudley Creek upgrade

This week’s

column by

Innes city

councillor

Pauline Cotter

looks at the

how the

upgrade of

the once flood

prone Dudley Creek has led

to ecological benefits

Dudley Creek is usually a

fairly gentle flowing creek that

meanders through much of

Shirley.

However, as part of the mayoral

task force recommendations

Dudley has received a major

upgrade to enable a much larger

capacity for water flow during

heavy rain events.

Improvements include the

removal of very dense plantings

along the banks, widening the

banks, and replacing bridges and

culverts.

But the real win here is that

the city council has taken this

opportunity to add significantly

to the ecology of the creek,

especially in the area from Hills

Rd through Slater, Chancellor Sts

and Julius Tce.

Take a stroll along there and

you will see the creek now has

beautiful rock edging, new

plantings of native trees such as

ti kouka, black beech,

ribbonwood, horoeka, kowhai to

name a few.

The planting of native trees

closer to the creek is beneficial

because they do not create as

much shade as exotics, do not

shed their leaves all at the same

time and can cope with wet

conditions, because the creek

is designed to flood into its

surrounding area.

It’s wonderful to see that silt

has been removed, and rock

caves and eel pipes have been

installed to increase the eel and

fish diversity.

The St Albans creek is also

seeing similar type of treatment

between Stapeltons Rd and Hills

Rd.

We now have a new and still

evolving jewel in the crown of

Innes, another example of seizing

opportunity from challenging

events, and I encourage you to

visit this area of the creek to

appreciate its beauty.

Student scholarships

ST BEDE’S students Ben

Mattingly and Justin Lee have

been offered University of Otago

scholarships worth $45,000.

It’s the first time a St Bede’s

student has been offered the

scholarship.

The university’s academic

excellence entrance scholarship

recognises academic ability and

leadership capabilities.

School dux James McCrea also

has offers from Otago, Canterbury

and Victoria universities.

Sixteen students have been

offered 28 scholarships in the

past two months and further

applications are pending.

It’s the largest number of

offers made to the school’s

students.

Oliver Davidson has been

offered the University of Otago

performance entrance scholarship

valued at $16,000 over three

years.

Oliver had roles in several

professional productions around

the city this year, including

Evita, Hairspray and Mamma

Mia.

University of Otago received

more than 3000 applications for

its scholarships.

Rubberware factory opened

• By Sam Pickering

A NEW rubberware company

opened in Wigram last week in a

bid to boost the dairy industry.

Skellerup celebrated the

opening of its new $60 million

company with Prime Minister

John Key dropping by to see the

new 19,000m 2 facility.

The company had struggled

after their old site in Woolston

sustained damage in the earthquake.

Skellerup chief executive David

Mair said he was confident

the factory will be a platform for

future growth.

“People said we should move

to China, that didn’t actually

stack up. So the great thing

about this is there is a really

good future here in Christchurch.

“We are 4.7 million people at

the bottom of the world. Most

people don’t know us. Yet we

are winning business in the US

because our products are better

and we can deliver better,” he

said.

The facility was acquired by

Skellerup in May 2013 from Wigram

Business Park developers

and Ngai Tahu property.

Skellerup staff said they were

stoked to be staying in the city

during a tough period after the

earthquakes.

Move for business complete

FAMILY-OWNED Switched

On is the first business to move

to the new Belfast Business Park

and was opened by Deputy

Prime Minister Bill English last

Tuesday.

The move brings the buiding

company together for the first

time, after being accommodated

in old, villa-style offices in Shirley

and Wainoni since the earthquakes.

General manager Chris

Hughes said the new building

was a milestone in Switched On’s

35-year history in Canterbury.

“This is our first ever purposebuilt

building. It’s an investment

in our staff and the region. We

started out here and we’re confident

that Christchurch’s future is

bright,” Mr Hughes said.

Designed by Walker Architecture,

with interior design by

Redesign Group, the building has

been crafted to reflect the trades

that make up the business.

Features such as text-artwork

made of screws; natural timber

walls; exposed ceilings; and metal-mesh

lights further enhance

the building’s unique, industrial

look and feel.

Switched On’s builders, electricians

and painters have fitted out

the entire building themselves,

starting with a pre-cast concrete

shell in February.

“Our team have put a lot of hard

work into this build. We’ve used it

as an opportunity to not only give

our staff a more modern working

environment, but to also show off

what they can do. Their attention

to the finer details has been really

impressive,” he said.

It’s 1965 and The

Everly Brothers are

John Walsh and Patrick Reynolds are back with their third handsome New Zealand

residential architecture book, which this time covers 60 projects built since 2007 and ranging

from the small — baches, studios and apartments—through to the big—substantial new

residences and conversions, homes with budgets to match their scale.

Walsh and Reynolds have track records as New Zealand’s preeminent architectural writer

and photographer respectively. This time they are joined by a team of eminently well

qualified contributing writers who, under John Walsh’s editorial supervision, bring together a

very significant survey of residential architecture endeavour in recent years.

Thoughtfully written, beautifully photographed and handsomely produced, this massive

book is unrivalled. Complete with plans, and enormously comprehensive, it is both a

celebration and a sourcebook of New Zealand’s best architectural work.

Promoting student voice

aim of Rangi magazine

RANGI RURU Girls’ School

launched its first magazine

written, edited and designed

solely by its students last week

and already more than 240 copies

have been sold.

It is titled Shelter and promotes

student voices, reflecting the

diverse thinking and content

created by girls from all levels of

the school.

The first issue is called the

Respect Edition, and explores

treatment of others, expression of

thought, interactions and how respect

can be more widely applied.

The concept of student-generated

magazines isn’t a new one,

however, in recent years these

publications have declined dramatically.

It is believed that Rangi Ruru

will now be the only school in

the country to produce a

magazine solely directed by its

students.

Head of media students Jude

Morgan said this is not only

due to the cost but also to the

introduction of digital and social

media.

Editor Mollie Carruthers said

she jumped at the chance to work

on the project because it gives a

voice to students who might not

SCHOOLS

otherwise have the confidence to

express themselves publicly.

“Being a quiet person myself

I’m proud to be a part of something

that is ‘right up my alley’,

in the sense it isn’t about being

a certain personality or a public

speaker,” she said.

“A strong voice is not always

one that is loud.”

Miss Carruthers said she is really

proud of the first edition and

is excited to share the magazine

with the school’s current community

and alumnae.

$165,000 plan to manage old trees

• By Bridget Rutherford

ABOUT $165,000 will be spent

developing a plan looking at

ways to mitigate the effects of the

city’s ageing tree population.

The city council decided to

write an Urban Tree and Forest

Plan to plan how to manage trees

in the future.

It will look at ways to deal with

the ageing population, climate

change, urban heating, transport-related

greenhouse gases

and airborne pollutants, and

ways to support Christchurch’s

garden city image.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the plan,

which will be completed in 2018,

will provide “strategic direction”

to deal with those factors.

He said older trees could be

managed by removing branches,

or placing a mulch layer over the

roots, however, it became costly

the further the tree declined.

“If trees decline to the point

that personal health and

safety may be at risk we act

accordingly.”

Meanwhile, the city council

has spent more than $257,000

over the past year on reports and

assessments of trees.

Figures released under the

Local Government Official

Information and Meetings Act

showed from August 2015 to

REPORT: This smaller tree

at Edmonds Park had to be

assessed for the Bells Creek

flood mitigation scheme.

August 2016, $257,872 was spent

on these reports.

That figure related to

assessments done for any reason,

not just in relation to tree

removals.

In July, the city council set

aside $30,000 for carrying out

tree assessments at Bells Creek

in Woolston, as part of the flood

mitigation scheme.

City council land drainage

manager Keith Davison said, to

date, $11,553 had been spent on

arborist services for the $9 million

project.

He said that included the

in-house assessment of 317 trees

across five sites. Thirteen of those

trees were removed and replaced.

The work was done to see what

condition the trees affected by

the work were in, and whether

the scheme could be designed

around them, Mr Davison said.

Three reports and a

memorandum were produced

from the work. In all cases,

the city council’s operational

arborist team conducts its own

assessment on the trees first.

Additionally, it may

commission an independent

arborist for a report to get a peer

review, during high demand

periods, in relation to significant

trees, or for trees in heritage

parks.

A tree survey of the Avon

River’s stopbanks in June was

costed at $8798, while tree

condition surveys along Dudley

Creek was costed at $5416.

July was the most expensive

year for tree reports, costing

$60,708, while in August, $27,334

was spent.

Architect helps rebuild communities

Entrepreneur Camia Young, 42, settled in

Christchurch in the aftermath of the February

22, 2011, earthquake. Fraser Walker-Pearce

talks to the American architect about her

passion for rebuilding the city

Tell me what you were doing

when you first arrived in New

Zealand?

I arrived five years ago and

was teaching architecture at the

University of Auckland. During

that time, we brought more than

1000 students to Christchurch to

help with the rebuild and I did

that until about a year or so ago.

I was flying from Christchurch

to Auckland on a Monday and

coming back on the Wednesday.

I would do that every week and I

got super tired. I loved teaching,

it was such a good time.

During your time at the university,

were you still involved

with Christchurch?

In the middle of that teaching

we did Gap Filler’s pallet pavilion,

which took place over the

course of a summer and winter.

It was up for two years, so that

was a treasure of a project. And

during setting that up, I caught

a bug – it was a good bug, but a

bug nonetheless. The bug taught

me about building communities

through building buildings. It

wasn’t about the pavilion it was

about the community around

the pavilion that made it work.

It was about a healing place for

the community to gather around

after the earthquakes.

And what after that?

Then I started a project called

Exchange Christchurch, XCHC.

X stands for exchange and CHC

is Christchurch’s airport code.

And we will be doing Exchange

Auckland, which will be XAKL

and Exchange Wellington which

will be XWLG. So there are other

initiatives coming as well. It

provides a place for people that

have lost a lot in the earthquakes,

a place to create and produce

their creative work and develop

their creative practice.

Great, so what can people see

at XCHC at the moment?

At the moment we have a

jeweller, a painter, a composer,

a few photographers, an

architectural designer and art

exhibitions that change weekly.

So would you say you’ve been

quite involved with the rebuild

of the city?

I’ve been more involved in the

social side of the rebuild more

than anything. What I’ve been

doing is learning by doing while

I’m here. This will absolutely

be a 21st century city where it’s

not so much about the next big

icon, but where the people will

come first and the buildings will

be a by-product of that. I have

confidence in the people.

Right, and where in the city

are you based?

I’m mostly at the exchange

in the central city, but I own

a place out in Lyttelton. I love

Lyttelton, but I also love Sumner,

New Brighton, places with a

cool community feel. I much

prefer the speed of small than

the big city stuff, you can get

so much more done in small

communities. I actually live up in

Mt Pleasant and I quite like that.

And you have a slight accent

there – is it American?

Yes. I was born in Colorado

and those mountains still call

to me. I’m from Aspen. It’s the

Rocky Mountains that get me.

New Zealand has a really strong

connection with nature as well.

I left when I was younger and

lived in Europe for 11 years,

studied in London, then worked

in Rotterdam (Netherlands),

Paris (France), Madrid (Spain)

and Basel (Switzerland). It was

great, I was practicing there as an

architect.

There must have been some

incredible projects in the likes

of Paris?

There was one project in Paris

– it’s the only time I’ve ever cried

ENTREPRENEUR: Camia Young moved to Christchurch to

use her skills as an architect to help rebuild the city after the

earthquakes.

when we lost a project. It still

hurts to this day. I fell in love

with it. It’s where I learned to

dream with the intent to realise

the dream. It’s easy to come up

with an idea, it’s expensive to

execute them.

I’d imagine it would be. Have

you been anywhere other than

America, Europe and New

Zealand?

I’m also a Brazilian resident.

My father lives there. I spend

a bit of time there and I speak

Portuguese as well. He lives in

northern Brazil. He built a selfsustaining

home in the middle

of the sand dunes. He’s lived

without electricity for the last 25

years and now has solar power.

He’s a hippy in the middle of a

desert. So he’s my inspiration for

a lot of things.

That’s pretty incredible. Do

you have a project that, once

completed, you’ll be happy to

retire and put your feet up?

No. I don’t really have an

end-game. I love seeing positive

change. And I think we’re all

inherently creative, to see that

work done is the road and the

end for me.

Where did you spend your

school years?

Up through secondary I

was in Aspen, elementary and

high school. Then I did my

undergraduate at University

of Colorado and graduated

as valedictorian and went

on to get a masters in Los

Angeles at SCIARC, the

Southern California Institute of

Architecture. In three years, I got

two masters degrees, rather than

two and a half for one masters,

which it could’ve been. Then I

practiced architecture in Europe

for 11 years across the board

there.

Do you have any family over

here in Christchurch?

No, no family here, I fly solo.

I have lots of love, I miss them,

miss the mountains, too. But

some family has come out while

I’m here, though. Mum and dad

have been out. My sister uses

the old ‘if you don’t eat your

vegetables, you won’t be able to

go visit Aunty Camia’ on her two

kids. They’re super-excited to

visit as well.

Was it always an intention of

yours to come to Christchurch?

Not at all. I was looking for

change from working in a

corporate office. As much as I

loved my life in Europe, I wanted

to find somewhere I could do

my own thing. A friend of mine

who is a Kiwi offered to bring me

in to teach at the University of

Auckland, which was about three

months before the February

22, 2011, earthquake. Then

that entire year course became

focused on the earthquake and

on Christchurch. I had never

taught and I had never been to

Christchurch, but I was looking

for a new home and so I came

a month before the course

was due to start and I walked

Christchurch for that month and

then went up to teach the course.

I knew in that month that I

would stay here. I was looking

at a couple of other countries

around the world – Brazil,

Canada – but I couldn’t do it.

What are some of your

first memories stepping into

Christchurch post-earthquake?

It was late 2011, so it was

post-apocalyptic. I thought

immediately I was in way over

my head and I thought I was

naive in the fact that I thought

I could make a difference. But

after phoning my dad about it,

I decided I would stay. I started

really walking the city and

learning as much as I possibly

could about it. I ended up getting

my visa through the job in

Auckland and now I’m here. But

that month, it was really scary

for me because I had never seen

a crisis on that scale before and I

didn’t know what to do.

Must have been pretty

terrifying. Had you experienced

an earthquake before that?

I think I remember maybe one

earthquake when I was in Aspen,

but when I was in LA there was

a few. But nothing compared

to when I came here, and they

happened so often back then.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | NOVEMBER 2016

EQC pays $495 million in the past year to

settle Canterbury claims

EQC Chief Executive Ian Simpson

The Earthquake Commission paid

out nearly half a billion dollars to

settle claims in Canterbury in the

year to 30 June 2016, its recently

released annual report shows.

The annual report includes lots of detail

about the work EQC has been carrying

out in Canterbury in the past year.

Figures in the report show that in the

2015/16 financial year, EQC paid out

$495 million in claims for the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquake sequence.

This total was made up of $441 million

for residential building claims (both for

cash settlements and managed repairs),

$46 million for residential land claims

and $8 million for contents claims.

IN THE

FINANCIAL YEAR

TO

30 JUNE 2016 EQC PAID OUT

$495 MILLION

MADE UP OF $441 MILLION

FOR RESIDENTIAL BUILDING CLAIMS,

$46 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL

LAND CLAIMS AND $8 MILLION

FOR CONTENTS CLAIMS.

EQC has now spent $9.4 billion

(including claim handling expenses,

excluding GST) in its response to the

2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.

This sum has been financed from the

Natural Disaster Fund and by the

reinsurance cover EQC had negotiated

prior to the earthquakes.

EQC recovered about $444 million

of the cost of Canterbury claims,

largely from international reinsurers,

in 2015/16.

EQC also paid out $25 million for claims

other than those from the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes. This includes

$4.7 million for claims from the

February 2016 earthquakes.

AT 30 JUNE 2016,

EQC HAD

COMPLETED

REPAIRS

ON MORE THAN 67,000 HOMES,

SETTLED 187,000 CONTENTS

CLAIMS, COMPLETED CLAIMS

FOR LAND DAMAGE TO

66,000 PROPERTIES.

In Canterbury, as at 30 June 2016, EQC

had completed repairs on more than

67,000 homes, settled 187,000

contents claims and completed claims

for land damage to 66,000 properties.

“By the end of the year we aim to

have cash settled the more than

14,000 claims from the February 2016

earthquakes,” says Chief Executive

Ian Simpson.

Mr Simpson reaffirmed EQC’s ongoing

commitment to Canterbury in 2017.

“In the upcoming year, EQC will

continue to be present in Canterbury

resolving remedial requests on

properties where we have managed a

repair. There is also a range of

administrative and financial tasks to be

completed.”

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016,

EQC HAD PAID OUT

$9.4 BILLION

IN RESPONSE TO THE 2010-2011

CANTERBURY EARTHQUAKES.

THIS MONEY CAME FROM THE

NATURAL DISASTER FUND

AND REINSURANCE.

Mr Simpson says that EQC has adequate

funds to continue to operate and to meet

its financial obligations and settle claims.

“There is always a high level of

uncertainty when it comes to settling

claims. For instance with home repairs,

the true extent of damage may only

become clear once repairs begin and

tradies start ripping off weatherboards

or lifting floorboards.

IN ADDITION,

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016

EQC HAD PAID OUT

$4.7 MILLION

FOR CLAIMS ARISING FROM THE

FEBRUARY 2016 EARTHQUAKES

IN CANTERBURY.

“Because of this uncertainty, we have

built a margin into our estimates of what

the Canterbury claims will cost.

“In the event that we did need to use all

of this margin, the Crown has confirmed

in writing that it will meet its obligations

under the Earthquake Commission Act to

ensure that EQC can meet all its liabilities

as they fall due,” Mr Simpson says.

The EQC Annual Report shows that EQC

received about $280 million in premiums

and spent $210 million on expenses,

excluding claims payments and claims

handling expenses for the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquake sequence.

“Our largest expense was the $150

million in premiums for reinsurance,

which currently provides New Zealand

with access to $4.69 billion in cover

Canterbury students

head to Chile for

earthquake conference

Five engineering students from University of Canterbury will be

attending the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering

(16WCEE) in Chile this January thanks to sponsorship from EQC and

the NZ Society for Earthquake Engineers (NZSEE).

EQC’s Research Strategy and Investment Manager Richard Smith says the

sponsorship goes partway to supporting students and practitioners to

attend the conference, which is the preeminent gathering of engineers

involved in seismic resistant design.

“WCEE is to earthquake engineers what the Olympics are to sport. This

opportunity gives these students exposure to ideas and knowledge from

around the globe as well as the chance to forge international connections

that will be of value to their research and to New Zealand.

“EQC plays an important role in funding and facilitating research about

natural hazard risk. Part of that is making sure we have researchers within

New Zealand who have the capability to undertake that research.”

Mechanical engineering PhD student Jarrod Cook says the chance to

attend 16WCEE will be invaluable. “I’m exploring ways a ratcheting,

tension-only device can reduce the motion experienced by buildings

during an earthquake, and therefore limit the damage and impact to

people as well as enabling buildings to stay open after the event. WCEE is

the premier conference in earthquake engineering so this is a great way

to share my ideas, get critical feedback and see what others are doing.”

WCEE is held every four years and provides attendees with the

opportunity for a global exchange of knowledge, ideas, research

results and practical experience. As well as students from Canterbury,

EQC and NZSEE are jointly sponsoring the attendance of five students

from Auckland University and four industry representatives from across

New Zealand.

From left to right: Jarrod Cook, Pavan Aninthaneni and Amir Malek are three of

five University of Canterbury students heading to Chile for the World Conference

on Earthquake Engineering this January.

Fashion

Race week tips for the boys

• By Annabelle Dick

THE BOLDER the better – that

seems to be the mantra for

men’s NZ Cup and Show Week

fashion.

By no means am I an expert

in men’s fashion, so I called

into a few menswear stores

to see what’s been flying off

the shelves in preparation for

Christchurch’s biggest event on

the fashion calendar.

At 3 Wise Men in the Re:Start

container mall, it’s all about the

shirt.

Block colour and patterned

dress shirts have been a popular

favourite for race day.

“There’s a lot of checks this

year. Like check shirts and bold

colours, not so much plain,” said

store manager Jess Edwards.

“I’d go for a bright, colourful

shirt like bright green or pink

with a navy suit.”

In the suit department, long

gone are the days of the classic

cut black suit – navies, greys and

patterns have been selling out

this season.

“Maybe a bit of texture or

really subtle checks, but mostly

navy and grey,” Miss Edwards

said.

Bonus: There are almost no

RACE DAY READY: Mix up your suit texture like these young

men at the New Zealand Trotting Cup last year by sporting a

pattern on your suit jacket.

coloured shirts that don’t match

navy or grey.

At Meccano Riccarton,

they’ve been noticing the suit

and shirt trend, too.

“Men are going for quite

bold patterns and they want

something a bit more edgy. We

have a few floral shirts at the

moment and people have been

gravitating towards those quite

intense patterns,” sales assistant

Claudia Copeland said.

“We haven’t sold many black

suits either – charcoal grey and

navy have been popular.”

She said men are changing it

up this year by opting for a waist

coat instead of a jacket, or swapping

suit pants for a more casual

chino.

“There’s been a lot of mix and

matching going on this season,”

Miss Copeland said.

When it comes to ties, you’ll

get away with ditching it if

you’ve chosen a busy shirt.

“Where people can get away

with not wearing a tie, they

won’t. That’s why they’ve been

going for the boldly patterned

shirts, because it’s easier to get

away with not wearing one,”

Miss Copeland said.

Now you’ve got the suit

pinned down, you need footwear

to match.

Alert: Black won’t work with a

navy or grey suit. Save them for

funeral and weddings and pair

your outfit with shoes in brown

hues.

“Brown shoes have been very

popular with the brogue detail.

We have suede boots in at the

moment that have been really

popular. People have been opting

for that instead of the classic

black,” Miss Edwards said.

​Mecca Maxima

Boys’ High in national cup

CHAMPIONS: Breens Intermediate won gold in a water polo

competition in Dunedin recently. After five wins in pool play,

the A grade team went on to beat Tahuna in the semi-final and

then Cobham Intermediate in the final. Sports co-ordinator

Jono Collins said they are extremely proud of this success. “It

has been four years of hard work and dedication by our players

and parent support crew. We continue to go from strength to

strength in sport at Breens,” he said.

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School’s first XI booked its

spot in the country’s biggest

secondary school tournament

after defeating St Andrew’s

College at Hagley Oval.

The Secondary School Boys’

First XI Cup – formerly known

as the Gillette Cup – is a weeklong

tournament held annually at

Lincoln University. The country’s

top six secondary school cricket

teams contest the tournament

after winning their regional

qualifying competition.

Christchurch BHS and St Andrew’s

played in the Canterbury

qualifying final last week. St

Andrew’s were first to bat and

found itself struggling at 54/3

after 25 overs.

Christchurch BHS bowler

Josh Mariu was instrumental in

restricting the run rate, going for

just six runs from six overs.

St Andrew’s picked up the run

rate when Sam Gilbert came to

the crease. He top scored with a

knock of 62, scoring at a rate of

almost a run a ball to help his

team through to a total of 183/6

from their 50 overs.

The opening pair of Sandford

ANCHOR: Year 11 batsman

Louie Chapman saw

Christchurch BHS home

with a knock of 66 not out.

Heard and Ben Hartland got

Christchurch BHS off to a fast

start, both scoring in the 20s to

have the chase at 53/2 after 10

overs. Jack Turner and Louie

Chapman then steadied the ship

with scores of 52 and 66 not out

respectively.

Chapman hit the winning

run in the 48th over as his team

wrapped up a seven wicket win.

“The boys are absolutely

fizzing; this is what we’ve been

building up for all year. I was

just happy to get a few runs out

there,” said Chapman.

Christchurch BHS will now

join the five other regional qualifiers

at the national tournament,

which runs from December 5-9.

They last won the tournament in

2014.

FC Twenty 11 reach semis

in youth tournament

THE FC Twenty 11 under-19

boys’ football team came

agonisingly close to an

appearance in the final of a youth

championship in Napier.

The team lost 1-2 to eventual

winner Onehunga Sports in

the semi-final of the National

Under-19 Youth Championships

Satellite over Labour weekend.

The team was five minutes

away from forcing extra time

before their hopes were dashed

by a late goal.

FC Twenty 11 also had a boys

and girls’ team in the final at

the South Island Under-19

Tournament at Cuthberts Green.

With the boys in Napier coming

within reach of achieving the

same mark, it could have been a

day to remember for the club.

The under-19 boys’ team was

unbeaten in pool play, scoring

21 goals in five games, while

conceding only three.

They scored three more goals

in their quarter and semi-final

matches and conceded two.

Overall, in seven matches, they

scored 24 goals with five against.

“The boys were excellent

throughout the weekend and

whilst bitterly disappointed we

didn’t reach the final, they can

be very proud of their efforts,”

said FC Twenty 11 under-19 boys’

coach Boyd Kedzlie.

FC Twenty 11’s Jacob Richards

was voted tournament MVP.

Karamella team ensures the right level

HEALTH & BEAUTY

“Beautiful healthy

teeth for life”

At St Albans Dental Centre one of

the key measures of their success is the

number of patients they treat through to

older age with natural teeth and gums

with the supporting tissue intact.

They strive (in line with their motto)

to keep these tissues healthy and as

beautiful as possible, and where damage

has occurred, from decay, wear, erosion

or accident, they carefully repair it with

tooth-like materials in an attempt to

recreate the original form and function of

these teeth.

St Albans Dental Centre is a general

dental practice looking after all dental

requirements while specialising in ‘Cerec’

ceramic repair, sedation dentistry (for

those who don’t want to know about it)

and wisdom teeth extractions.

The practice believes in and practises

‘preventative’ dentistry, which aims to

help patients prevent disease rather than

fixing the damage once it has occurred.

They also believe in and practise ‘minimal

intervention dentistry’, meaning they

minimise the damage to natural tooth

tissue when repair is undertaken.

They are a team of dedicated dentists

and hygienists, who provide professional,

high-quality dental care to their patients

and the community.

They are very sad to have lost Dr

Freddie Linterman from the team as he

decided to retire at the end of October. .

Dr Linterman joined the St Albans Dental

Centre after the 2010 earthquake rendered

his central city practice unusable. He has

had a long and distinguished career in

dentistry caring for his many dedicated

patients and he will be sorely missed by

one and all. Everyone on the team wishes

Freddie all the best for his retirement.

Dr Kristine Bettle has rejoined the

team after a break for maternity leave and

is currently working two days a week.

Kristine is looking forward to treating

both new and existing patients.

St Albans Dental Centre welcomes a

new hygienist, Petria Waitzer, who is

working alongside Victoria Ryan. Petria

has relocated from Auckland with her

husband, where she worked in both

specialist and general dentistry. She is

passionate about providing oral health

care tailored to individual needs. She is a

very experienced hygienist with a strong

focus on preventative and periodontal

dentistry.

For any concern, questions or to make

an appointment at St Albans Dental

Centre, please call (03) 355 9380 and

one of the friendly receptionists will be

happy to assist with any dental enquiry.

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.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

An exciting career

in Automotive

Southern Institute of Technology

(SIT) graduate Janaka Liyanapathirana’s

childhood love of cars has seen him excel

to an exciting career in Automotive.

Janaka completed the Certificate in

Automotive Engineering in Christchurch

in October and, after being recognised for

his overall outstanding efforts throughout

the course, has graduated with a prized

welding helmet gifted by BOC.

“I was really surprised about the award,

it was so unexpected,” he said.

Coming to New Zealand to pursue his

dream of becoming a mechanic, Janaka

said he tried different automotive courses

around the country but only found the

right course for him at SIT.

“I was so lucky to find the right place, the

right course and the right tutors [at SIT],

from all of the other places where I tried

within NZ,”

“The best opportunity the course gave

me was the live practical experience and

institutions with proper techniques from

the tutors who are qualified and have long

term experience in the same trade.”

Janaka said he has already received an

opportunity to enter the workforce and

start his career.

“I think I have followed the right track,

by the time I finished I got a job offer from

the biggest car company in Christchurch,

so I have already planned to join them and

enjoy working with what I have studied.”

For any enquires phone 349 3645 or call

in and see us at 60 Waterloo Road.

Help your child grow

in confidence

Life skills programme for children.

Do your children lack self-confidence, or

perhaps have so much energy that they need

an outlet for it? Development through drama

is the ideal approach to teach confidence

and channel youthful energy while building

self-esteem.

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy has

been in New Zealand for 32 years. This highly

regarded worldwide programme helps

students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their potential by

acting confidently and speaking clearly. This

unique, self-development programme helps

achieve invaluable life skills. The confident,

articulate child makes friends easily, accepts

challenges and new directions. Confident

children become well-rounded adults.

Our fully qualified teachers are trained

in the Helen O’Grady Drama system,

they ensure each child is encouraged

and valued in a warm, positive learning

environment. Lessons stimulate and

motivate students without the exam or

peer group pressure. Weekly class activities

include speech training, creative movement

and improvisation. Our Youth Theatre

programme encourages the development of

leadership and organisational skills. Three

terms of the year cover the self-development

programme and in the fourth term all

students prepare a performance for parents

and friends. We also offer Trinity College

London examinations as an option for

those who wish to pursue an international

qualification.

Our safe structured learning environment

values student individuality and encourages

team building. Most importantly its great

fun too!
