Plan to beat arsonists

• By Andrew King

FIRE SERVICE and education

bosses are working together to

prevent vacant schools from

being the target of arsonists.

The campaign is aimed at

removing things such as rubbish

bins, outside furniture and other

combustibles from school sites

that opportunist arsonists use to

set fires.

There are 25 schools citywide,

four in the north-west suburbs

that have either been earmarked

for disposal, further education

purposes or community use

as part of the $1.137 billion

Christchurch Schools Rebuild

Programme.

Fire Service’s Bruce Irvine

said they are working with the

Ministry of Education over a

prevention plan.

“We have been looking around

the schools for things like

rubbish bins not being stored

away correctly, outside furniture

not pushed against buildings,

that sort of thing to try limit

the amount of opportunity,” he

said.

The north-west sites are on

Champion St, which is being

used by Beckenham School

temporarily, Glenmoor School

on Philpotts Rd, Kendal

Primary on Kendal Ave and

Marshland School’s former site

on Marshland Rd.

MoE head of education

infrastructure service Kim

Shannon said all schools are

vulnerable over summer

because they are generally

unoccupied.

“It’s an unfortunate fact

that all schools are potential

targets for arson and vandalism,

particularly during the summer

months when the buildings

aren’t in use,” she said.

Aranui High and Wainoni

schools now have extra security

after both were vandalised

recently.

Aranui High was hit just a

week after it closed down for

good last month. A number

of windows were smashed,

buildings tagged

and construction equipment

on-site was vandalised and

tagged.

Australian NRL club spotted

him displaying the explosive

NOR’WEST NEWS

News.....................................3-13

GREAT TO see a strategy to try

and stop opportunist arsons at

schools earmarked for demolition

around the city (see page 1).

Typically, random fires that

happen at schools (usually during

school holidays) are started

in rubbish bins, or on outdoor

furniture, and usually by groups

of teenagers roaming the area at

night looking to create mischief.

The real arsonists take the places

out with planned intent. These

guys are few and far between and

always fairly impossible to stop.

So a wise move by the Fire

Service and Ministry of Education

to get rid of rubbish bins and

equipment at unused schools,

which hopefully will mean those

marauding groups of teenagers

will simply move on.

And good luck to Mika Ravalawa

(see page 1 and 18) – he’ll

do well at the Canberra Raiders.

In Brief

BURGLARY ARREST

Police have praised a person who

alerted them to suspicious behaviour

at a St Albans address on

Friday morning which led to the

arrest of a 27-year-old man for burglary.

Senior Sergeant Chris Scott

said several staff, including a dog

team, cordoned off Weston Rd and

located the offender hiding inside

an address on that road.

BOARD MEETINGS BEGIN

Community boards in the northwest

will resume normal meetings

every two weeks from February.

Harewood-Waimairi Community

Board meeting will be on February

CONFUSION: A ‘to let’ sign on the front lawn of Ilam MP Gerry Brownlee’s office had some locals wondering if he was moving.

‘Don’t worry’ – Gerry’s staying

• By Andrew King

DON’T BE misled by this sign.

Ilam MP Gerry Brownlee is

not moving out of his Greers Rd

electorate office.

“It is the rear section for let,

not here,” Mr Brownlee said.

Residents were wondering if he

was moving out of the area.

“We saw the sign and thought

he is taking off,” said Gail Scott,

of Bryndwr.

When Mr Brownlee’s office

was contacted on Friday by

Nor’West News, MP support

Allie Benny said she had

wondered if it was going to cause

some confusion.

“Don’t worry, he is not

moving,” she said.

“They will have to carry him

out of here.”

Mr Brownlee has held the Ilam

seat since 1996 and is

the Minister of Defence,

Leader of the House, Minister

of Civil Defence, Minister

Maintaining trust and confidence

This week’s

opinion piece

was written

by Canterbury

district police

commander

Superintendent

John Price about modern

day law enforcement

I am extremely proud of the

police team who serve the people

and make a difference to the

community every minute of

every day as our team keep the

peace and ensure the public will

be safe and feel safe.

In New Zealand, our police

have the implicit consent of the

community. In order to do this,

we must be seen as policing with

integrity and with accountability.

Essentially, we must have the

trust and confidence of the community.

Policing by consent follows the

principles, ideas and ideals of

Sir Robert Peel, which define an

ethical police organisation.

These ‘Peelian Principles’ are

as relevant today as they were in

1829 when they were established.

Police, at all times, should

maintain a relationship with the

public that gives reality to the

historic tradition that the police

are the public, and the public are

the police.

We maintain the highest level

of ‘full trust and confidence’ of

any policing organisation in the

world, at about 80 per cent.

By comparison, some policing

jurisdictions have trust and confidence

levels lower that 10 per

cent, demonstrating that those

organisations are not widely seen

as ethical and trustworthy.

If you have travelled overseas,

you will have seen examples of

policing organisations which

have an approach of policing

with fear and only force.

We place enormous importance

on maintaining and fostering

the trust and confidence of

our communities and we work

hard to ensure we maintain our

core values and hold each other

to account.

Having been a member for 30

years I think the community is

justified in having trust and confidence

in this organisation.

In Canterbury, we want to

ensure that people can be safe

and feel safe and I’m sure that is a

sentiment you will share.

Our focus is on reducing harm

caused to families, whether that

be through violence in the home,

death and injury on the roads,

drug use or dishonesty offending.

We also want to empower

communities to work together,

support each other and to speak

up when something isn’t right.

We work very closely with

a range of agencies and community

groups to ensure people

receive the support they need and

deserve.

Over the past year, we have targeted

those bringing illegal drugs

and firearms into our communities

and, as a result, have seized

140 illegal firearms. Each one of

those is potentially a life saved.

We have also prevented significant

amounts of illegal drugs in

getting to our streets.

We are very lucky in that we

receive a lot of positive feedback

from members of the community

for the work we do.

To those people who have taken

the time to contact us, I would

like you to know that your words

of support mean a lot to myself

and my team who come to work

every day to make a difference in

the lives of everyone so that we

can be the safest country.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Last week we asked

readers if they thought

more funding should

be allocated by the city

council to install school

zones, which would

include signage and a

reduced speed limits

around schools. A reader

responds:

Colin McGavin, of

Papanui – I live in Paparoa

St and am very familiar with

the traffic patterns caused

by the school. There are two

street frontages for Paparoa St

School – Paparoa St and Tomes

Rd. Paparoa St is a cul-de-sac,

dead end, so carries no through

traffic. Tomes Rd joins Rutland

St with a 90-degree corner and

a 25km/h speed limit. At school

start, 9am, and finish, 3pm,

times, both sides of both streets

are filled with the parked cars

of parents and others dropping

off or picking up children.

This means that there is

generally only room for a

single line of traffic and you

have to give way to let through

cars coming the other way.

So there is already a ‘built in’

speed restriction mechanism.

Therefore, spending money

on additional signage for this

school is a complete and total

waste of money. Take it off

this list and spend the money

on schools that have genuine

problems.

Stolen credit cards found

in Bryndwr property search

• By Andrew King

TWO STOLEN credit cards have

been recovered as police continue

to crackdown on youth crime in

the north-west.

A search warrant

was issued to look

for stolen items

at a property on

Aorangi Rd, Bryndwr,

on Tuesday,

which was believed

to be linked with

Nick Adcock two burglaries in

Papanui.

A youth has been spoken to

by police and a man has been

charged with using a document

for pecuniary advantage.

It is alleged the man used a stolen

credit card to make purchases

totalling about $400.

Police say he could possibly face

methamphetamine possession

and utensil charges as well.

Among the recovered items

were Australian senior citizen

cards police believe were taken in

the Papanui burglaries as well as

stolen credits cards and electronics.

It follows another warrant issued

on January 6 in Bryndwr,

where a 13-year-old suspect was

identified as a person of interest

in the Papanui burglaries. From

that warrant, police established

another address that potentially

contained more stolen property.

Police say charges are yet to be

laid.

The crackdown is part of an operation,

code-named Piper, which

targets the top 10 youth believed

to be responsible for burglaries,

thefts, vandalism, graffiti, intimidation

and other offending.

Acting Sergeant Nick Adcock

said seven of the 10 top offenders

have been dealt with for offending

with various degrees of seriousness

since the operation started in

September.

He said he couldn’t comment

on the specifics but the offences

ranged from burglary, aggravated

robbery and trespass.

Operation Piper is based out of

the Papanui police station and is

aimed at giving opportunities to

break the cycle of crime.

It’s part of a wider focus

throughout northern and eastern

suburbs to reduce youth crime

and a national goal to reduce it 25

per cent by June.

TEAMWORK: The Fire Service and Ministry of Education

are working together to reduce opportunities for arsonists

around schools.

Plan to beat school

vandals, arsonists

•From page 1

Wainoni was hit by vandals

this month. It also had a

number of windows smashed,

some of which have since been

boarded over.

Mr Irvine said the unoccupied

schools were “pretty high

risk” when it came to fires.

He said Aranui High was

lucky to not have a fire during

the recent attack.

Funding can be allocated to

schools to repair buildings that

have been deliberately set on

fire, provided the damage is

under $2500.

The MoE has a funding programme,

backed by private sector

insurance, to pay for repairs

to school buildings damaged in

a fire or natural disaster.

Buildings will be covered for

loss or damage costing more

than $2500 to repair and that

meets the criteria.

Kate Russell

Proud mum awarded for her

Kate Russell has been a leader in the

not-for-profit health sector for 24 years. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about working

at the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation

and what it was like to raise three children as a

solo parent.

Congratulations on becoming

and Officer of the New Zealand

Order of Merit. You must be

very excited?

I was thrilled when I heard.

My first reaction was who the

heck must have nominated

me? But I still don’t know and

possibly never will. I am very

honoured. I didn’t know I was

going to get nominated. There

are so many different sectors

in my professional life where it

could have come from, but they

said health and governance and

that has narrowed it down.

What made you stick to

helping the not-for-profit

organisations?

I fell into the not-for-profit

sector by accident. My first job

was as a fundraising assistant

for Presbyterian Support. I

got it because it was a 20-hour

week job and it suited the fact I

had small children at the time.

I was in that job for a couple

of weeks and I had what you

would describe as a vocational

empathy of thinking, oh my

goodness, this is what I want to

do for the rest of my life. I was

30-years-old and aside from

being a mother, I hadn’t figured

out what I wanted to do careerwise.

I had always done things to

do with social justice. I had gone

on the ‘no tour marches’ and

was a junior member of human

rights organisation, Amnesty

International.

Tell me about working at the

Canterbury Medical Research

Foundation?

When I took this role, some

of my colleagues at the national

programme, Cystic Fibrosis New

Zealand, were like isn’t that a

step back because you are going

into a regional role? But after the

earthquakes, I very much had

in my heart to do something in

Canterbury. Medical research is

something you don’t always get

immediate results. In the nearly

three years I have been there, I

can’t say there has been a new

blockbuster drug. Rarely does

medical research go ahead in a

quantum leaps, it is these little

baby steps that happen over a

number of years.

Could give me a picture of the

research you are doing at the

moment?

We just finished a study on the

use of vitamin C and breast cancer.

We are also funding a young

women at Otago University

who is looking to use vitamin

C for people who have got ear

infections. We are also pivotal in

supporting the development of

role in medical research

How do you think our

medical research compares to

the rest of the world?

We punch very well above our

weight. What gets achieved here

in research for the fraction of a

cost is really quite astounding.

In spite of the frustration we all

naturally get with the health system

and getting put on waiting

lists and restricted medicines, we

still have universal public health

care here. When you look at the

hideous situation people in the

United States find themselves

in, where they don’t have health

insurance, we have a fabulous

system here. We only pay $5 per

item for medicine which may

cost up to $150. Still some people

complain about that.

You often hear about there

not being enough beds at

Christchurch Hospital.

For sure, Christchurch Hospital

is an incredibly busy hospital.

But the financial results and just

the strategic results the CDHB

gets in terms of the development

of new services; they are

just terrific and stack up very

I wouldn’t say I had hit rock bottom,

but I was very poor and I

significant sacrifices for the

there for some time and I had

to make a conscious decision to

climb myself out of that. To not

be dependent on welfare.

How did you get through?

The whole family had to make

sacrifices for that to occur.

There were a lot of times where

I couldn’t go to the kids’ sports

They are very proud. From

time to time, we have these conversations

I am much too independent.

Exactly, and my independence.

independence to me because my

Deans’ farm

restoration to

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DECISION will be made on

the restoration of two buildings

connected to the pioneering

Deans’ farming settlement.

The city council will decide on

Thursday whether to approve a

heritage incentive grant of up to

$62,326 for the repair work of two

former farm buildings in Kahu

buildings in Canterbury will be

restored.

The application was made by

the Christchurch Boys’ High

School board of trustees, which

owns the buildings.

So far, the owners have

$1,486,468 available from insurance

and have raised a further

$147,061 for repairs to enable the

building to be reused.

The cost of repairing the buildings

is estimated to be $2,120,000,

which means the owners have to

find $546,395.

The Deans brothers, William

and John, were some of the earliest

European settlers in the city

and the site of their first farm was

at Riccarton Bush.

Young filmmaker on a roll

• By Andrew King

LOOK OUT Sir Peter Jackson,

there is a new director on the

scene.

Christchurch Girls’ High

School student Grace Maguire

recently won the New Zealand

Film Commission Young

Women Filmmaker in the

Outlook for Someday short film

competition.

Her three and a half minute

film is called Wired, a

docudrama about the overuse

of technology by teenagers

– it also won the CGHS film

competition for the second time

last year.

“They [teenagers] are using it

a lot more, not focusing what’s

happening around them . . . we

want them to look up,” she said.

A docudrama is a dramatised

television programme or film

which takes the form of a

serious documentary based on

real events.

The inspiration for it, she said,

came from observing her peers.

“It is just something I have

seen all around me,” she said.

It is not her first film.

In 2015, she won the school

competition with The Transfer,

which was about a teenager who

woke up every day in a different

body.

The 16-year-old filmmaker

said it was a fantastic experience,

one she will definitely repeat.

“I really want to make

more, they are so much fun,

especially when you are creating

things with your friends,” she

said.

The prize package for each

winning film includes a

commitment that the film will

be entered into at least one

international film festival in

2017.

St Margaret’s students ace exams

• By Andrew King

THREE former St Margaret’s

College students achieved

distinction in their

International Baccalaureate

examinations, the results of

which came back recently.

Grace Sullivan, Madeleine

Tilley and Gabriela Coates

now have a few different

options when it comes to

choosing a university.

The school had a 100 per

cent pass rate of students

who sat the exams, with 41

per cent meeting the criteria

for academic excellence

scholarships to universities,

including Victoria University

of Wellington.

The International

Baccalaureate Diploma

students aged 16 to 19.

The programme provides

an internationally-accepted

qualification for entry

into higher education and

is recognised by many

universities worldwide.

Grace, Madeleine and

Gabriela, who sat the exams

at the end of 2016, were all

awarded distinction for their

high marks throughout the

programme.

Grace was an academic

prefect last year and is also a

talented dancer.

She will attend Otago

University this year with two

scholarships called leaders

of tomorrow and vicechancellors.

Madeleine was deputy

head girl and is involved

in dance, debating and

drama.

She will head to the

University of Auckland with

a top achiever’s scholarship.

On top of her exam

success, Gabriela is a talented

sportswoman, having won

selection at both national

and international tennis

events.

She is weighing up her

options, and plans to study

at the University of Oxford,

University of Cambridge,

an Australian university or

Otago University.

School spokeswoman Beth

great success.

“The accomplishments

of these girls extend well

Papanui’s Mr Bean makes the cut

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LONG-TIME Riccarton Players

member Alistair Bean has

done everything in theatre

from performing in England to

working as a extra on TVNZ’s

comedy series of McPhail and

Gadsby.

Now, after acting in Riccarton

Players shows for more than 30

years, Bean, 53, of Papanui, will

debut as a director.

The theatre group will start

the year with a “thrill” bringing

Ted Tiller’s adaptation of Bram

Stoker’s novel Dracula back from

the dead.

“I did this show in Invercargill

in 1997 and it is written that well

that I thought if I had the opportunity

to direct, this is the show I

wanted to do,” he said.

Bean first became involved

with the Riccarton Players 31

years ago with the Riccarton

Players’ 25th Anniversary

production in 1985 of play The

Miracle Worker.

With aspirations to make performing

a full-time career in his

early 20s, Bean first gave it crack

in Britain.

He was going to perform in

a Christmas pantomime in

Southend, London for a year but

was soon told the show was only

professional for seven weeks.

LIFE IN THE ARTS: Alistair

Bean has been acting for

more than 30 years. In 1984

(left) he was a member of

street gang the Jets for

the Christchurch Operatic

Society’s production of

Westside Story in 1984. Now

he will debut as a director

with the Riccarton Players

in the production of Count

Dracula. (Right) – Rehearsals

for the show.

“I was only 23 at the time and

a little bit young in the ways of

the world so it all became a bit

intimidating so I went home,” he

said.

But determined to continue

with the arts as well as delve into

a career in finance, Mr Bean performed

with numerous theatre

companies in the city including

Canterbury Children’s Theatre

and The Christchurch Operatic

Society – now known as Showbiz

Christchurch.

He now has his own business

Alistair Bean & Assoc’s Financial

Services Ltd based in St Albans.

He said his most memorable

performance was a matinee show

of Les Miserables at the Isaac

Theatre Royal in 1994 when a 6.7

earthquake struck Arthur’s Pass.

“We had a revolver on stage

and thought these were the best

special effects we have ever had,”

he said.

He said the whole theatre was

evacuated and the performers

were out on the street in their

make up.

“The old chandelier in the

theatre was swinging 180 deg

. . . we had 400 stage lights above

us and any of them could have

come down but none of them did

fortunately,” he said.

One of his other memorable

shows was working with New

Zealand comedians David

McPhail and Jon Gadsby on

their political satire show, where

he was everything from a marching

girl to an All Black.

“I think the only thing that

hinders a lot of talent in New

Zealand is our lack of population

to pay a living professional wage,

otherwise would have many

more people choosing it as an

occupation,” he said.

​Foul smell in Papanui’s past

• By Murray Williams, Papanui

Heritage Group

IN 1922, the ratepayers of the

most urbanised part of Papanui

voted to amalgamate with

Christchurch city.

Prior to this, the whole of

the Papanui area had been

administered by the Waimairi

County Council and there was

a large degree of dissatisfaction

with the level of service

provided by this authority in

comparison to those that were

enjoyed by people living in

Christchurch.

One such example was that

since the 1880s, the more

central parts of Christchurch

had enjoyed the luxury of a

sewerage system that removed

human waste from individual

properties via underground

pipes.

However, those who lived

on the outskirts of the city,

for example ‘out in Papanui’,

still relied on the collection of

‘night soil’ by the ‘night man’

on a weekly basis. This was an

insanitary and malodorous

method.

The contents of the cans were

either buried in sand hills or

dumped in waterways.

The longed for relief was not

DIRTY WORK: Papanui residents relied on the collection of

‘night soil’ by the ‘night man’ on a weekly basis, an insanitary

and malodorous method of dealing with sewage.

however instantaneous.

Many Papanui citizens

had failed to appreciate that

providing a sewerage system

was not the role of the city

council.

In fact it was the

responsibility of the

independent Christchurch

Drainage Board and Papanui

had to wait its turn for the

board’s timetabled installation

programme.

The Papanui Progress League,

a lobby group which had

been formed to support the

amalgamation with the city,

kept up the pressure on the city

council, which was responsible

for the supervision of night soil

collection.

On February 17, 1927, the

secretary of the league fired

off an angry letter to the

Christchurch town clerk in

which he protested at night

carts starting the collection of

human effluent as early as 7pm

when it was still daylight.

The letter said: “The league

realises that it may be difficult to

do all the districts after dark, so

long as this system, a link with

the stone age, exists … but it is

nothing short of a scandal that

the pure air should be polluted

with these abominations at such

an early hour.”

The league at least received a

speedy reply.

On February 19, the town

clerk conceded that collection

should not start before 11pm

but noted that the relevant

by-law did not limit the hours

that night carts could travel on

streets.

Papanui had to wait until

1928 before contractors started

work on the system which

finally delivered this undoubted

benefit of urban living to what

was then Christchurch’s most

northern suburb.

St Margaret’s

Church rebuild

on the cards

• By Andrew King

A BISHOPDALE church gutted

by an arsonist could be torn down

with the rebuild under way by

mid-year.

The St Margaret’s Presbyterian

Church on Farrington Ave suffered

almost $2 million in damage when

Cheyenne Destiny Jade Reed, a

35-year-old technician, broke into

it and started a fire in May.

Reverend Andrew Nicol said

while some in the community are

still dealing with the loss of the

church, most are in good spirits.

“The timeline for a rebuild is not

clear yet, but we are hopeful we

could be building our new church

halfway through the year,” he said.

He said while most of the

new building will be covered by

insurance, he wanted to see some

fundraising from the congregation

to show real ownership.

“This would show we are completely

behind the rebuild,” he said.

Currently the congregation

meets at Isleworth School.

Reed was jailed for six years

for the arson and other charges,

including burglary, unlawful possession

of a knife, breach of bail,

receiving a computer and theft of

a car.

Hello

Flexible booking hours give families

greater choice

For busy working parents with young children, a local childcare centre that offers

flexibility can make all the difference when they are juggling work schedules and

caring for their family. That’s where the privately run First Learners centres come

to the fore.

Owned and operated by Linda Broekman,

who trained as a kindergarten teacher and has

decades of experience across the early learning

environment, the three First Learners centres

in Shirley, Mairehau and Rangiora cater for all

families’ needs.

“We are very flexible with our booking

hours,” says Linda. “We don’t have set

sessions, so parents and caregivers can leave

their children in our care on any day or days

and for any length of time that suits them.”

The centres cater for children from birth

to six years and are staffed by qualified and

experienced teachers, with a low child to staff

ratio.

“Our philosophy focuses on the needs of

each individual child, and we cater for their

differing developmental needs with separate

sections according to age groups,” Linda

explains.

First Learners offers a free play environment

as well as some structured time according

to age, ensuring that the children are kept

engaged, stimulated and challenged while

at the same time having fun and developing

their social skills, creativity and confidence.

The play areas are spacious and well

equipped, with the children free to access

both indoor and outdoor areas. By allowing

them to make choices about where they want

to be and what activities they want to get

involved in, the staff encourage the children

to explore and be curious and creative.

The centres offer the government subsidised

20 free hours, and these are “absolutely free,

with no extra charges”, Linda says.

And when children are enrolled at any of

the First Leaners centres, the first four weeks

are offered free, with certain conditions.

Details of these can be found on their website,

www.firstlearners.co.nz.

Linda and her staff have an open door

policy, so parents and caregivers are welcome

to call in at any time to inspect the centres and

chat about their child’s needs.

The centres are open Monday to Friday

from 7.30am to 5.30pm (Rangiora

7.15am-6pm). For more information visit

www.firstlearners.co.nz or call Linda on

(03) 313 1242.

Don’t make it easy for arsonists

• By Mark Thomas – Fire

Risk Management Officer

WE’RE IN a new year and

the same old incidents

keep on occurring. By this

I mean kitchen fires and

arsons.

An unattended cooking

fire in Sockburn this

week raised an interesting

dilemma for landlords.

Most know that there

is a new building law

requirement that landlords

provide smoke detectors in

their properties.

In the case referred to

there weren’t any smoke

alarms in a rental where

the tenant went off to work

forgetting about food

cooking on the stove.

Smoke was seen and Fire

Service troops attended.

There wasn’t too much of

a mess and our crew made

sure there was a brand new

10-year smoke detector

installed (free of charge

by the way) before the

occupant went back in.

But what would be the

result if the tenant had

gone to bed after cooking

rather than leaving for

work? What if then the

worst happened? How

would the law treat the

landlord?

It’s a good enough

reason to make sure an

alarm is there and that the

installation is recorded.

Then it’s the tenant’s

responsibility if the alarm

is removed. Otherwise

landlords, you could be in

the gun!

An arson fire in

morning was lit in

yard. Most of the damage

was cosmetic but some

light fittings and air

conditioning units were

destroyed. It probably

wouldn’t have happened if

combustibles hadn’t been

available.

Please make sure your

skips, bins and cardboard

cages are locked and away

from your building.

Don’t make it easy!

ONE OF the top try-scorers in

last year’s UC Championship

has been snapped up by the

Canberra Raiders.

Former Burnside High School

rugby player Mika Ravalawa has

arrived in Australia to begin a

two-year contract with the NRL

side.

As part of the contract, he

will be working within the

club as a cadet, which will see

him working from Raiders

headquarters and assisting with

club promotions and activities.

The-19-year-old will also be

staking his claim for game time

with the under-20 squad in the

National Youth Competition.

“I’m really thankful of the

opportunity the Raiders have

given me and I’m looking

forward to settling in and getting

to know all my new teammates.

The training is already at a really

high level and I need to make

sure I work hard and, hopefully,

get a chance to play in the NYC

team,” said Ravalawa.

Born in Fiji, Ravalawa made

the move to Christchurch

early last year after receiving

a scholarship at Burnside’s

international rugby programme.

The explosive back had

captained the Fijian under-18

sevens team and was

recommended to the programme

by former Crusaders and

Fijian assistant coach Tabai

Matson.

After hearing the high praise

from Matson, Mark Ealey, who

LEAGUE CONVERT: Former Burnside High School student Mika Ravalawa has joined the

Canberra Raiders on a two-year contract with the NRL team’s under-20 squad.

runs Burnside’s international

rugby programme, got Ravalawa

on board. He didn’t disappoint,

going on to win the programme’s

MVP award.

“His contribution to the first

XV was invaluable. He has both

work ethic on defence and the

ability to turn a game with just

one or two plays when he gets

the ball,” said Ealey.

Ravalawa was predominantly

used at centre but also spent time

on the wing for Burnside. He was

one of the standout players in

the UC Championship, finishing

with 14 tries, the second most

out of all players.

His efforts helped Burnside

win the South Island co-ed title.

The 20-14 win over South Otago

High School qualified them

for the national co-ed finals

tournament. It was on this stage

that Ravalawa was spotted by

Raiders recruitment and high

performance manager Peter

Mulholland.

“He was outstanding in his

position as an outside back; he

has pure athleticism and, after

I spoke with him, he also had

a strong knowledge on rugby

league.”

“Importantly as well, he’d

been in a good environment at

Burnside school where he had

successfully made the transition

away from his home and this

made us aware he can adapt to

living in a new environment,

which is important for a

young player at this age,” said

Mulholland.

“There’s no doubting his

natural ability, it’s just a matter

of him working hard and taking

the next steps in his career under

the coaching of Brett White and

the NYC coaching staff.”

Stray cat problem

on the increase

• By Gabrielle Stuart

THEY ARE cute, fluffy – and

reaching plague levels in

Christchurch.

Cat Rescue Christchurch has just

had its busiest month on record,

taking in 137 stray cats and kittens

for rehoming in December. That was

up from 80 at the same time the year

before.

It has left the charity with more

than $12,800 in vet bills for December

alone.

The numbers show no signs of

slowing, with another 40 arrived

already this month.

Managing director Beki Milligan

said the charity had been working

for more than a decade to try to

reduce Christchurch’s stray cat problem,

so the spike was disheartening.

“I like to think we’re getting

somewhere, but as soon as we think

that, something like December will

happen,” she said.

“It doesn’t take long for a problem

to get out of control, especially when

it’s cats. They can start reproducing

at 16 weeks, so if you’ve got one litter

and in four months they are reproducing

themselves, then you can

have a colony of 50 in six months.”

The majority of the cats had been

living wild for a long time, she said,

often in Christchurch’s industrial

areas.

HOMELESS: Leia, one of the

kittens Cat Rescue Christchurch

currently has up for adoption.

The kittens and some cats were

homed by the network of volunteer

foster families, who socialise and

train them before they are put up for

adoption.

Wild adult cats are usually released

again after they are desexed

and have medical needs taken care

off.

beginning of the academic year.

The university released a series

She said the college will

be expecting an increase in

numbers this year with full-time

student role numbers going up

by 20 per cent in the last five

years.

Last year, 3220 domestic and

international students were

enrolled in the college.

Final figures for this year is

not expected to be released until

February or March.

The completion of the precinct,

known as the “Canterbury Engineering

the Future” project is the

first major redevelopment of the

engineering department at the

university in 42 years.

A Canterbury University

spokeswoman said the project

comprises of a renewal of all

engineering facilities.

Meanwhile, students looking

to study chemical and process

engineering will now know

what the new building will

look like. Images were recently

released of the wing completed

The precinct is based on the

northern side of Ilam along the

Creyke Rd frontage.

no extreme flexibility required and, unlike

around movement of the torso rather than

footwork.

Although travelling and weight

transitions are required for stage work, as

a beginner you will learn mainly to move

your hips and shoulders (“belly” dance is

a misnomer). Then you can start to put

movements together into phrases, add

FOCUS ON HEALTH

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 8 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 and 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.

Krill Oil No.1

for Good Health!

All our body cell membranes are made

up of phospholipids exactly the same

phospholipids as available in Krill Oil.

These phospholipids available in Krill

are its big advantage over fish oil that is

in a triglyceride form and that must be

converted by our liver to phospholipid

form to be able to have benefits to our

cell membranes. This conversion of

triglycerides to phospholipids is inefficient

and a much larger dose of fish oil is

needed for the same benefits as a much

smaller dose of Krill Oil. Some research

has shown Krill Oil to be 48 times more

potent than fish oil. Another benefit of Krill

Oil is it contains one of the most potent

antioxidants known, Astaxanthin.

Recent research shows Krill Oil can

lower your risk for cardiovascular disease,

metabolic syndrome, obesity, Type-2

diabetes and may lessen a variety of brain

and mental disorders including Autism

and Dyslexia, Parkinson’s and some forms

of Alzheimer’s disease. Krill Oil can help

normalise high blood pressure by reducing

inflammation of the blood vessels and

improving blood quality. It is also highly

effective at reducing high cholesterol

levels, increasing HDL cholesterol,

reducing triglycerides (a damaging blood

fat), reducing C - reactive protein and

reducing other damaging blood factors. It

can also reduce dangerous fat levels in the

liver and heart. Krill Oil is also a natural

anti-inflammatory and can help reduce

NOR’WEST NEWS

pain, improve joint function and reduce

symptoms of arthritis.

The secret is therefore the phospholipid

and Astaxanthin content rather than

just the amount of Krill oil in the soft gel

capsule. Some brands have very low levels

of these two important compounds and

may not even list them on the label. For the

maximum nutritional benefit we are happy

to help you choose a quality product with

effective amounts of Phospholipids and

Astaxanthin and at a realistic price.

Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, Phone: 388-

5757. We are Always Happy to Help You!

NOR’WEST [Edition NEWS datE]

Tuesday January 24 2017 27

Stretch

your way back to it

As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you

may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.

This is a good indicator from our

bodies, that the holiday routine

was somewhat different. Perhaps

you sit a lot for work and you

were on the go or, you are normally more

active and the holiday break was more

sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay

attention to these signals the easier it will

be to deal with it.

So what can you do to ward off pain

and stiffness and boost your energy and

alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises

at your desk that will release tension from

head to toe. They take only a few minutes.

Set the alarm on your cell phone or

computer to go off every hour to remind

you it’s time to get up and stretch.

Just stand up and sit down - no hands

If you stand up and sit down (over and

over) without using your hands it can be a

challenge, do it while you’re on the phone;

no one will know.

Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders

Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders,

lifting them high up to your ears. Hold.

Release and drop. Repeat three times.

Loosen the hands with air circles

Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you.

Make circles in the air, first in one direction,

to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles.

Shake out the hands.

Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you,

pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your

right hand to increase the stretch, pushing

your fingers down and toward the body.

Be gentle do the same with the other hand.

Now stretch your left hand out straight

in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing

skyward. Use your right hand to increase

the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward

your body. Do the same on the other side.

Release the upper body with a torso twist

Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right

and grab the back of your chair with your

right hand, and grab the arm of the chair

with your left. With eyes level, use your

grasp on the chair to help twist your torso

around as far to the back of the room as

possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes

continue the stretch see how far around

the room you can peer. Slowly come back

to facing forward. Repeat on the other side.

Do leg extensions

Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

and extend your legs straight out in front of

you so they are parallel to the floor.Flex and

point your toes five times. Release. Repeat.

Stretch your back with a “big hug”

Hug your body, placing the right hand on

your left shoulder and the left hand on your

right shoulder. Breathe in and out, releasing

the area between your shoulder blades.

Cross your arms - for the shoulders and upper back

Extend one arm out straight in front of you.

With the other hand, grab the elbow of the

outstretched arm and pull it across your

chest, stretching your shoulder and upper

back muscles. Hold. Release. Stretch out the

other arm in front of you - repeat.

Stretch your back and shoulders with a “leg hug”

Sit on the edge of your chair (if it has

wheels, wedge the chair against the desk or

wall to make sure it does not roll). Put your

feet together, flat on the floor.

Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms

dangle loosely to the floor. Release your

neck. Now bring your hands behind your

legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm

(or elbow if you can reach that far), left hand

grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your

back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release

your hands to the floor again. Repeat three

times or as often as it feels good.

Look up to release upper body

Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch

your arms overhead and interlock your

fingers. Turn the palms to the ceiling as

you lift your chin up, tilt your head back,

and gaze up at the ceiling, too. Inhale,

exhale, release.
