St Barnabas returns<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

ST BARNABAS will reopen its<br />

doors on Sunday – almost six<br />

years after it was badly damaged<br />

in the <strong>February</strong> 2011 earthquake.<br />

The iconic Fendalton Rd<br />

church has undergone $2 million<br />

in repairs.<br />

It will be celebrating the opening<br />

at 10am on Sunday, <strong>February</strong><br />

19, just before the six-year anniversary<br />

of the quake.<br />

St Barnabas vicar Mark<br />

Chamberlain said most church<br />

members have not yet been<br />

inside the church.<br />

Bishop of the Anglican<br />

Diocese of Christchurch,<br />

Victoria Matthews, will speak<br />

at the opening service. A special<br />

choir of church members and<br />

others around the city will sing<br />

at the opening.<br />

Items, such as the church’s<br />

bible, baptism jug and music<br />

books, which were removed from<br />

the church at the time of the<br />

earthquake, have been returned.<br />

Rev Chamberlain said the<br />

returning items were “symbolic”<br />

of the church’s opening.<br />

The repairs involved<br />

earthquake strengthening and<br />

repairing stonework and the<br />

stained glass windows.<br />

The strengthening has brought<br />

the church up to at least 67<br />

per cent of the new building<br />

standard.<br />

Extensive fundraising to pay<br />

for the work was done by the<br />

church congregation, which had<br />

been using the adjacent hall since<br />

St Barnabas closed.<br />

St Barnabas was originally<br />

built as a memorial church<br />

honouring those who died in<br />

World War 1.<br />

It has been home to many<br />

influential Christchurch<br />

figures through its long history,<br />

including vicar and broadcaster<br />

Canon Bob Lowe and vicar<br />

Michael Underhill who went on<br />

to become dean of Christchurch.<br />

SUNDAY WILL be a big day in<br />

the Nor’west, and indeed across<br />

Christchurch – St Barnabas<br />

reopens.<br />

The earthquake repairs have<br />

been six years in the making,<br />

and seeing one of the city’s older<br />

buildings restored to its former<br />

glory is simply great.<br />

St Barnabas is obviously a treasure<br />

for those who use it for worship,<br />

weddings and other things.<br />

But is also pleasing on the eye<br />

asthetically for those who don’t<br />

stop but are travelling to and from<br />

the airport.<br />

On page 3 today we have the<br />

latest update on Aaron Keown’s<br />

bid to get lights in at the intersection<br />

of Harewood, Gardiners and<br />

Breens Rd.<br />

Keown has this issue by the tail<br />

and he’s not letting go.<br />

And he still has that $100 he<br />

has pledged to give away in his<br />

pocket. - Barry Clarke<br />

Keown steps up campaign<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

CITY COUNCILLOR Aaron<br />

Keown’s campaign to get<br />

traffic lights at the Harewood,<br />

Gardiners and Breens Rds<br />

intersection led to a public<br />

turnout of almost 100 people<br />

last week.<br />

Cr Keown held a public<br />

meeting at the site and was<br />

surprised at the turnout.<br />

Most residents were “dumbfounded”<br />

that a set of lights<br />

had not been put at the intersection<br />

and the remedy was<br />

“ridiculously obvious,” he said.<br />

One person was against the<br />

idea of lights, but everyone<br />

else was in support of them, he<br />

said.<br />

Cr Keown said doing it the<br />

“opposite way around” and<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

using the wisdom of the local<br />

community to drive the design<br />

requirements made the evening<br />

a real success.<br />

He said having a meeting on<br />

a roadside to get design ideas<br />

is not the “norm” and plans<br />

would usually be made by city<br />

council staff then presented to<br />

the public. His last chance to<br />

get the intersection in the city<br />

council’s annual budget is next<br />

week’s city council meeting,<br />

but Cr Keown said he needs<br />

public support.<br />

Cr Keown campaigned for<br />

improvements to the intersection<br />

in the run up to last year’s<br />

local body elections.<br />

“I’ve got to get the community<br />

to turn up . . . it’s really,<br />

really important that people<br />

submit,” he said.<br />

AARON KEOWN still has<br />

the $100 he promised to give<br />

the person who could identify<br />

a worse intersection than the<br />

Harewood, Gardiners and<br />

Breens Rds injunction.<br />

Cr Keown issued the challenge<br />

in a bid to strengthen his<br />

belief the Bishopdale intersection<br />

was the worst in the city.<br />

Two people, Ashley Harvey<br />

and Hamish Middleton, both<br />

of Northwood, came forward<br />

to claim the $100. They said<br />

the Neill St, Canterbury St and<br />

Main South Rd intersection in<br />

Hornby met the requirements.<br />

But Cr Keown said that<br />

intersection was no worse than<br />

the Harewood, Gardiners and<br />

UNSAFE: A meeting about the intersection of Harewood,<br />

Breens and Gardiners Rds was attended by almost 100 people.<br />

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN<br />

$100 intersection challenge still for the taking<br />

Breens Rds junction, so therefore<br />

no payout.<br />

“It’s got to be worse, it can’t<br />

just be the same. More lanes to<br />

cross or more kids in the area,”<br />

he said.<br />

The intersection covers 10<br />

lanes like the Bishopdale intersection<br />

and is near The Hub<br />

Hornby and Sockburn School.<br />

“That intersection isn’t on the<br />

radar for a change, maybe that’s<br />

why it’s been a suggestion . . .<br />

I’m interested to look at it next.”<br />

In Brief<br />

ABBERLEY PARK CONCERN<br />

St Albans residents are unhappy<br />

with Abberley Park’s announced<br />

playground upgrade. The<br />

Friends of Abberley Park group<br />

has made a submission to the<br />

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood<br />

Community Board expressing<br />

its concern over the loss of green<br />

space and “special character” of<br />

the park in favour of playground<br />

extensions.<br />

TOY LIBRARY FUNDING<br />

The Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board has approved $3000 of<br />

funding for the Shirley Toy<br />

Library. The funding will go<br />

towards librarian wages. The<br />

board stressed the importance<br />

of the library to the community,<br />

which operates out of<br />

Hammersley Park School. It has<br />

been running since the Burwood<br />

and St Albans toy libraries<br />

merged in 2009.<br />

NO STOPPING<br />

The Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board has decided to install<br />

no-stopping restrictions on the<br />

corner of Main North Rd and<br />

Tuckers Rd. It will prevent cars<br />

parking near the corner on the<br />

northern side of the road in an<br />

effort to reduce the build up of<br />

traffic turning right from Tuckers<br />

Rd onto Main North Rd.<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

Lawrence shows he still has<br />

Three north-west gardens have won awards<br />

at the Christchurch Beautifying Association<br />

summer garden competition. Julia Evans reports<br />

NORTHWOOD’S Peter<br />

Lawrence had a bulldozer<br />

through his property early last<br />

year but downsizing hasn’t<br />

stopped him from adding<br />

another premier garden award to<br />

his 80-strong collection.<br />

Mr Lawrence won four awards<br />

in the Christchurch Beautifying<br />

Association’s summer garden<br />

competition, including the Ruske<br />

and Walsh cups for garden cultivation<br />

and maintenance.<br />

His new garden still looked<br />

“pretty good” but he was surprised<br />

to win the association’s<br />

top award, the Ruske Cup.<br />

Behind his modesty, a lot<br />

of time is spent creating and<br />

maintaining his gardens. Mr<br />

Lawrence said he is out there<br />

each day.<br />

“Starting with a water first<br />

thing each morning . . . every day<br />

is a new challenge.”<br />

Mr Lawrence said it was “good<br />

for the community and good for<br />

the individual” to take pride in<br />

their garden, especially because<br />

Christchurch is the garden city.<br />

In between maintaining his<br />

own property, Mr Lawrence also<br />

runs a gardening club and has<br />

judged the street and garden<br />

awards across the city.<br />

Association president<br />

Ron Andrew said in spite of<br />

downsizing his garden by<br />

half, Mr Lawrence deserved the<br />

win.<br />

“He sets an example for the<br />

other members and the standard<br />

is extremely high,” Mr Andrew<br />

said.<br />

Although Mr Lawrence wins<br />

a lot of awards, new gardeners<br />

were not discouraged from<br />

entering the garden competition.<br />

There were more entries this year<br />

than any other.<br />

Northwood residents Janet<br />

and Brian Lovelock also won<br />

seven awards in the competition.<br />

This included the best display<br />

of flowers and colour impact;<br />

outdoor living; residential<br />

driveway display and the<br />

continuing standard awards.<br />

Mrs Lovelock said they were<br />

thrilled to have won.<br />

Since retiring, the pair have<br />

spent all their time together<br />

in the garden, but that doesn’t<br />

always make for a relaxing day.<br />

“It’s full pressure, but it’s<br />

still enjoyable or we wouldn’t<br />

compete,” said Mrs Lovelock.<br />

For them, the real beauty<br />

comes from encouraging new<br />

gardeners, and Mrs Lovelock<br />

said if their garden inspires other<br />

people “it’s worth it.”<br />

They have been competing in<br />

the garden competition for six<br />

years since moving into their<br />

new house but have already lost<br />

count of the awards they’ve won.<br />

Another north-west resident,<br />

Peter Van der Zee, also won a<br />

pair of awards.<br />

His gold in the best tree/<br />

shrub category and silver in the<br />

Herbert Cup will now sit next<br />

to Mr Van der Zee’s 251 other<br />

gardening awards collected over<br />

the past 30 years.<br />

Although he has a massive<br />

collection of gardening titles, Mr<br />

Van der Zee said winning now is<br />

still as exciting as when he won<br />

GOLD: Peter<br />

Lawrence’s<br />

garden has<br />

taken another<br />

top prize in the<br />

Christchurch<br />

Beautifying<br />

Association<br />

summer<br />

garden<br />

competition.<br />

GEOFF SLOAN<br />

his first award, which was for<br />

best novice garden.<br />

He spends a few hours every<br />

day in his garden and said the<br />

awards are “just the icing on the<br />

cake” to his favourite past time.<br />

Gardening was a passion of his<br />

which was passed down from his<br />

grandfather and parents.<br />

Mr Van der Zee said he will<br />

buy a drink for anyone who can<br />

spot his grandfather’s old push<br />

mower still hidden in his garden.<br />

Head students who will lead the way<br />

Head boys and girls have been named at local high<br />

Head girl: Britney Aldridge<br />

Britney said<br />

she is proud to<br />

be head girl at<br />

Papanui High<br />

School for <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

Her main goal<br />

as head girl is to<br />

encourage and<br />

foster school spirit.<br />

Britney has been a representative<br />

of the New Zealand karate<br />

team since 2009, when she first<br />

competed in the World Karate<br />

Cup. She will complete at the<br />

junior world under 21 karate<br />

competitions in Spain in October<br />

this year.<br />

Her academic aim is to achieve<br />

NCEA level 3 and to study for a<br />

Bachelor of Applied Sports Science<br />

at Ara in 2018.<br />

Head boy:<br />

Mikael Ewans<br />

Mikael said it<br />

is a privilege to<br />

be head boy at<br />

Papanui High<br />

School this year.<br />

His main goal as head boy is<br />

to support and reinforce the inclusive<br />

nature of the school and<br />

wider community.<br />

He is currently training towards<br />

his black belt in karate.<br />

His academic aim is to achieve<br />

NCEA level 3 with excellence<br />

and study for a Bachelor of Engineering<br />

at Canterbury University<br />

in 2018.<br />

St Andrew’s College<br />

Head girl: Elizabeth Stevenson<br />

Elizabeth is<br />

a former New<br />

Zealand<br />

trampoline<br />

champion, and<br />

has received<br />

awards from<br />

AMP and the<br />

North Canterbury Sportsperson<br />

of the Year.<br />

She plays the piano, is a member<br />

of the college’s Maadi Cup<br />

rowing squad, and has provided<br />

voluntary help for a number of<br />

local charities.<br />

She was also a Strowan Scottish<br />

Heads of school: Shilah Norman<br />

and Kodie North<br />

Shilah (right)<br />

chaired the<br />

Mairehau High<br />

School Student<br />

Council in 2016.<br />

Under her leadership,<br />

many new<br />

school initiatives and projects<br />

were successfully introduced,<br />

including a new school jacket.<br />

Both girls volunteered their<br />

time in the community as part<br />

of the Student Volunteer Army,<br />

and were involved in leadership<br />

opportunities outside of school,<br />

such as Canterbury University’s<br />

leadership day and the Deloittes<br />

Shilah and<br />

Kodie (right) are<br />

well-rounded<br />

young women<br />

who excel in<br />

their academic<br />

endeavours, both<br />

privileged to<br />

have the opportunity<br />

to be involved<br />

with and<br />

work alongside a<br />

diverse range of girls within the<br />

school.<br />

Our theme for this year is ‘be<br />

bold and break barriers.’ Being<br />

bold includes encouraging girls<br />

to step outside of their comfort<br />

zone and back themselves by saying<br />

“yes” to new opportunities.<br />

I can’t wait to see what barriers<br />

we break together and the<br />

impact that we can have on our<br />

community in the future.<br />

St Bede’s College<br />

Head boy - Harry Staples<br />

It is incredibly humbling being<br />

chosen to lead St Bede’s College<br />

in <strong>2017</strong>. Often you’ll find me involved<br />

in initiatives that support<br />

the community and embracing<br />

the unique values of St Bede’s, or<br />

out on the sidelines of sports fields<br />

coaching, captaining, playing or<br />

training for the sports I love.<br />

Deputy head boy: Adam<br />

Lyons<br />

Music and sport is important<br />

to who I am as a person. I take<br />

pride in my college playing both<br />

the saxophone and guitar as<br />

well as playing football in the St<br />

Bede’s College first XI.<br />

Deputy head boy: Jake McKay<br />

I’m all about the whole school<br />

pride and passion side of the<br />

college. I can’t get enough of<br />

the drama, I find that being on<br />

stage is the best thing since sliced<br />

bread. Most of all chanting my<br />

heart out on the side line to get<br />

the boys hyped for the Rugby!

FLAME FILES<br />

• By Mark Thomas – Fire<br />

Risk Management Officer<br />

Tuesday <strong>February</strong> <strong>14</strong> <strong>2017</strong><br />

Heed near misses to<br />

avoid another tragedy<br />

MOST PEOPLE will have read<br />

of the horrendous death of the<br />

young man in Woodham Rd<br />

from catching his clothing on<br />

fire. The final cause is still being<br />

investigated but this is a good<br />

example of something I have<br />

come to realise over years of<br />

being a fire investigator.<br />

That is the number of ‘near<br />

misses’ is many, many times the<br />

number of incidents we attend.<br />

Most of these ‘near misses’ occur<br />

without anyone being aware they<br />

have happened. But every now<br />

and then a perfect series of circumstances<br />

line up in a row and<br />

the result is fire. Sometimes, like<br />

in Woodham Rd, with a tragic<br />

outcome.<br />

A less serious outcome in<br />

Oram Ave, New Brighton, is<br />

a good example. It’s summer<br />

time. So the placing of a picture<br />

frame on the top of a freestanding<br />

fireplace is not unusual or<br />

even dangerous. Until we get<br />

an unseasonal cold snap and<br />

someone lights the fire to warm<br />

the house. Then goes out. In<br />

this case the result was only a<br />

smokelogged house. But one or<br />

two more circumstances, like it<br />

being bedtime, and perhaps a few<br />

drinks and we could have had<br />

another tragedy.<br />

A slightly closer near miss on<br />

the same day in Bishopdale saw<br />

some sleeping occupants remaining<br />

fast asleep as their smoke<br />

alarm shrieked. In this case it<br />

was food left cooking on the<br />

stove. The alarm was overheard<br />

by a neighbour and 111 called.<br />

Without the call? Who knows?<br />

Victory for residents as<br />

contractor moves out<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A CONTRACTING company<br />

which had Richmond residents<br />

up in arms has now vacated<br />

their site.<br />

Worthington Contracting had<br />

occupied the address in Guild<br />

St since the <strong>February</strong> 22, 2011<br />

earthquake, after the Government<br />

put emergency legislation<br />

in place allowing contractors<br />

access to residential areas.<br />

After nearly six years residents<br />

were ready to see the back of<br />

the company and laid several<br />

complaints about dust plumes<br />

and sediment to Environment<br />

Canterbury.<br />

However, after a “collaborative<br />

conversation” between<br />

neighbours and the company,<br />

Worthington Contracting has<br />

now made a new premises home<br />

in North Canterbury.<br />

Founder Russell Worthington<br />

said they weren’t there to annoy<br />

the residents, it was a matter of<br />

proximity to their jobs, which<br />

have largely been in the east.<br />

“We’re listening to what<br />

they’re saying,” he said.<br />

They have now moved away.<br />

Although the company had<br />

GONE: Worthington Contractors have vacated this lot in<br />

suburban Richmond for a new North Canterbury site.<br />

Rangi Ruru students join<br />

global technology project<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

SIX RANGI Ruru Girls’ School<br />

students have become New<br />

Zealand’s only representatives<br />

selected for an international<br />

science, technology, engineering<br />

and mathematics project.<br />

From more than 4000<br />

applications worldwide, and 13<br />

across New Zealand, the Rangi<br />

Ruru students were selected to<br />

take part in the project, which is<br />

being run by the Junior Academy<br />

Programme.<br />

Jocelyn Bradley and Penny<br />

Dray, year 13, and Sam<br />

Summerfield, Amber Spurway,<br />

Sarah Lawrence and Lucy<br />

Anderson, year 11, were all<br />

selected for the project.<br />

The academy is a group of<br />

problem solvers made up of<br />

students; science, technology,<br />

engineering and mathematics<br />

experts; and companies from<br />

around the world, which<br />

are dedicated to designing<br />

innovative solutions to global<br />

challenges.<br />

Each student has been put<br />

in a different team with other<br />

teenagers from around the<br />

world.<br />

“Our team has decided<br />

to build a rudimentary<br />

spectrophotometer to be used<br />

with our mobile phones, which<br />

will be able to measure iron<br />

levels in foods and soil levels,”<br />

Amber said.<br />

“This can be used in countries<br />

with acute malnutrition, so they<br />

can be informed on whether they<br />

are lacking iron.”<br />

She said her group was doing<br />

well at the moment, but there<br />

was quite a lot of time pressure.<br />

Once finished, the students<br />

will receive certificates of<br />

completion and gain access to a<br />

global network of students<br />

and professionals, including<br />

the New York Academy of<br />

Science.<br />

MAIREHAU HIGH School<br />

received new desktop computers<br />

during the summer break as<br />

part of a planned upgrade.<br />

A lot of work was involved in<br />

setting up the new computers<br />

and disposing of the old ones.<br />

Students rallied to help with<br />

the upgrade rather than spend<br />

the remaining days of their<br />

school holidays relaxing.<br />

“It was wonderful to see the<br />

energy, enthusiasm and commitment<br />

to the task shown by<br />

these students over the course<br />

of two hot summer days,” said<br />

assistant principal Rebecca<br />

Swanson.<br />

“Mairehau High School is also<br />

grateful to Youthtown for its<br />

generous donation of $10,000<br />

towards the purchase of new<br />

chromebooks. The extra resourcing<br />

has been key in introducing<br />

BYOD (bring your own<br />

device) at year 9 this year, whilst<br />

ensuring that every student has<br />

access to the technology.”<br />

BURNSIDE’S CAIT Bassett<br />

and Richard Hocking are both<br />

in the New Zealand bowls<br />

development squad for <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

The pair are the only Cantabrians<br />

selected for the <strong>14</strong>-strong<br />

last month’s national open<br />

championships.<br />

From this squad, a 10-person<br />

series against Australia on the<br />

Gold Coast.<br />

Bassett was runner-up to fellow<br />

squad member Ashleigh Jeffcoat,<br />

of Waikato, in the national<br />

under-21 championships.<br />

Hocking is joined in the men’s<br />

team by the likes of 16-year-old<br />

Windsurfer ‘stoked’ with success<br />

• By Noah Graham<br />

MERIVALE HOUSE of<br />

Travel owner Annie Crombie<br />

is revelling in success after<br />

winning the windsurfing slalom<br />

national championships for the<br />

ninth time.<br />

Crombie faced five other<br />

competitors and battled through<br />

10 rounds of slalom races to<br />

finish with seven wins and was<br />

ahead by three seconds on the<br />

clock, which secured her title<br />

win.<br />

Crombie said the competition<br />

was tough and made her “puff a<br />

lot” but it was the first time since<br />

she started windsurfing competitively<br />

that she did not have<br />

nerves before the races<br />

in spite of the strong competition.<br />

The 49-year-old has<br />

windsurfed for more than 25<br />

years and started competing in<br />

2007.<br />

The races were harder this<br />

year than they ever had been,<br />

Crombie said.<br />

She said 19-year-old Lyttelton<br />

resident Fenella Bowater raced<br />

alongside and pushed her to the<br />

limit.<br />

The competitors this year were<br />

exceptional both on and off the<br />

water as they got along well inbetween<br />

races, often talking and<br />

having some fun, Crombie said.<br />

In the under-20 youth<br />

women’s event, Bowater took<br />

first spot and another Lyttelton<br />

competitor, 15-year-old Meg<br />

Rennie, came second.<br />

In the under-20 youth men’s<br />

event, a former Christ’s College<br />

student Thomas O’Neill and<br />

current student Ben Davie took<br />

the second and third spots.<br />

Terry Crombie, Annie’s<br />

husband, also competed in<br />

the men’s open and was<br />

winning for two days before<br />

Maui’s Peter John passed from<br />

behind.<br />

Crombie said windsurfing<br />

runs through her family’s genes.<br />

Her 15-year-old daughter,<br />

Kate, is also a keen windsurfer.<br />

last weekend.<br />

She competed<br />

against five of<br />

New Zealand’s<br />

windsurfers.<br />

Crombie said her family was<br />

incredibly proud and she was<br />

proud of herself as well.<br />

“I feel stoked, I feel proud. I<br />

raced at national level and it’s<br />

really satisfying to do.”<br />

She said the 10th title is in her<br />

sights but Bowater will not make<br />

it easy. •More sport, pg 15<br />

Clinton to meet NBA stars<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

QUINN CLINTON will<br />

test his skills against some<br />

of the world’s top young<br />

basketballers in New Orleans<br />

at the weekend.<br />

Clinton, 18, won a spot<br />

at the Basketball Without<br />

Borders global event after he<br />

was named the all-star game<br />

MVP at the BWB Asia camp<br />

in Melbourne last year.<br />

“It will be a step up from<br />

Melbourne because it’s now<br />

the best guys in the world. It<br />

will be really cool to see how I<br />

match up against guys my age<br />

from different countries,” said<br />

Clinton.<br />

The former Christchurch<br />

Boys’ High School student<br />

will also get to experience the<br />

NBA All-Star game, which<br />

the BWB camp coincides<br />

with.<br />

“It’s going to be pretty special<br />

seeing all of those guys,<br />

who are the best in the world<br />

essentially. I’ll be like a kid in<br />

a candy shop,” said Clinton.<br />

The guard will get to see<br />

the likes of LeBron James,<br />

Steph Curry and Kevin<br />

Durant in action in Sunday’s<br />

all star game as well as the<br />

three-point contest and dunk<br />

contest on Saturday.<br />

He will be one of two Kiwis<br />

at the camp, joined by Wellington’s<br />

Taane Samuel.<br />

“I’m really looking forward<br />

to this experience. It’s going<br />

to be great for Taane and<br />

I to represent our country<br />

together and help promote<br />

New Zealand basketball on<br />

the world stage. I’m keen to<br />

learn as much as I can from<br />

the NBA coaches and players,<br />

and get an insight into what<br />

it means to play at this higher<br />

level,” said Clinton.<br />

In December, Clinton<br />

played a crucial role in New<br />

Zealand’s 57-51 win over<br />

Australia in the final of the<br />

under-18 FIBA Oceania<br />

Championship, which saw<br />

them qualify for the inder-19<br />

World Championship in<br />

Egypt in July.<br />

Clinton, the Junior Tall<br />

Blacks captain, top scored for<br />

New Zealand in the final with<br />

<strong>14</strong> points.<br />

After a much-deserved<br />

break over the Christmas<br />

period, Clinton is now fully<br />

focused on preparing himself<br />

for the upcoming NBL season<br />

with the Canterbury Rams.<br />

He is currently training every<br />

day of the week ahead of the<br />

season opener on March 19.<br />

Following the NBL season,<br />

Clinton will move to Albuquerque,<br />

New Mexico, in August<br />

to begin his basketball<br />

scholarship at the University<br />

of New Mexico.<br />

SPORTS<br />

SHOT: Quinn Clinton will play against the world’s best<br />

juniors and watch the top NBA players in New Orleans at<br />

the weekend.<br />

CHAMPIONS: The Linwood Keas defeated the Hornby Panthers to take out the<br />

Crosbie Nines.<br />

Keas win Crosbie Nines<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

LINWOOD Keas took<br />

the spoils at the annual<br />

Crosbie Nines on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The tournament, hosted<br />

by the Riccarton Knights<br />

at Crosbie Park, is now<br />

in its third year and was<br />

played in perfect conditions.<br />

The 16-team tournament<br />

featured some of the<br />

South Island’s top clubs,<br />

as well as teams put together<br />

specifically for the<br />

tournament.<br />

“It was a great day, the<br />

first game was at nine in<br />

the morning and the final<br />

finished up just before six.<br />

The tournament’s great<br />

for bringing everyone<br />

together. We had nearly<br />

all the premiership teams<br />

there and some out-oftown<br />

teams from Nelson<br />

and Timaru,” said former<br />

Kinghts president, Tony<br />

Grenfell.<br />

The Keas went unbeaten<br />

through pool play before<br />

going on to defeat the<br />

Hornby Panthers 17-12 in<br />

the grand-final.<br />

“It was really pleasing<br />

after a long day. It’s tough<br />

to get through six games<br />

but the boys dug deep and<br />

got the result we wanted,”<br />

said Keas coach Andrew<br />

Auimatagi.<br />

The plate competition<br />

was won by the Bro XIII<br />

club which defeated Hamo<br />

Boyz in their final.<br />

Crosbie Park saw a<br />

large turnout from club<br />

supporters and Grenfell<br />

felt the tournament was<br />

becoming more popular<br />

each year.<br />

“It was quite a big punt<br />

to begin with; we kind of<br />

went in blind but we were<br />

overwhelmed with<br />

how well it went,” said<br />

Grenfell.<br />

“The second year went<br />

even better and now we’re<br />

able to fine tune things a<br />

little bit to help improve<br />

the tournament each<br />

year.”<br />

The top clubs will now<br />

turn their attention to the<br />

club premiership, which<br />

starts on April 1.<br />

If you’re a parent of school-aged children, chances are<br />

that there is a subject they just don’t like. And for many<br />

kids, that subject is maths.<br />

Like many parents, Dale and Kirsty found that their<br />

daughter Sayler, 8, just didn’t understand maths and it<br />

was proving difficult to keep up at school. So, Dale and<br />

Kirsty decided it was time to give Sayler that extra help she<br />

needed and enrolled her in the Kumon Maths Programme<br />

at their local centre in Fendalton. It was during the August<br />

Free Trial, and so they decided to see if their older son Zach<br />

might enjoy Kumon Maths also.<br />

Six months later and both children are still doing daily<br />

worksheets with Kumon. Maths is now one of Zach’s<br />

favourite subjects and Sayler has demonstrated a real<br />

motivation for improving in her studies. That Kumon<br />

worksheets are timed makes this easy for Sayler to see, ‘She<br />

is really keen to beat her time. I think having those little<br />

goals certainly help’ said Dale.<br />

A sense of achievement can go a long way when it comes<br />

to engaging with maths. ‘Everyone likes it when they have<br />

success, don’t they? Being able to see that progress is great’<br />

said Kirsty.<br />

‘Kumon focuses on maths skills - exclusively and<br />

expertly’ said Marette Wells who runs the Kumon<br />

Fendalton Education Centre. ‘The ability of the student<br />

does not matter; Kumon brings confidence as they grow<br />

into their potential’.<br />

Kumon follows a method that develops self-learning in<br />

children which is important to parents like Kirsty. ‘I think<br />

it’s really important that our children know that if they<br />

need to find out how to do something then they have the<br />

skills to work it out.’<br />

For more information contact your local Kumon<br />

Education Centre or visit our website nz.kumonglobal.com<br />

Back to school with confidence<br />

At Kumon, students begin study at a level that allows them to build<br />

confidence from day one. Students progress through the programmes<br />

based on their ability rather than their age. Over time, students can study<br />

advanced material confidently and independently for success in school<br />

and everyday life.<br />

Contact your local Kumon Centre to hear how we can support your<br />

child’s learning.<br />

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School’s premier tennis team have won the Christchurch<br />

qualifying tournament for next month’s South Island secondary school<br />

championships. Ava Willimann, Kyla Otway, Jade Feneon, Tessa McCann and<br />

Luka Simmers beat Christchurch Girls’ High School 6-0 and St Margaret’s<br />

College 4-2 in the tournament. Anne Bissland, Rangi Ruru’s premier tennis<br />

convener, said the girls’ played very well but have a busy competition<br />

schedule ahead of them this term. Last week’s result at Wilding Park means<br />

they will compete in the South Island tournament in Timaru on March 3-5,<br />

where they will also have the chance to qualify for a shot at a national title.<br />

providing it is included in their policy.<br />

Appearance medicine is another key<br />

aspect of Transform Clinic’s therapy options,<br />

with skin rejuvenation and skin-tightening<br />

treatments designed to improve skin quality<br />

as well as enhance self-esteem.<br />

Treatments include the Vampire Face Lift,<br />

which uses Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP, and<br />

Fraxel laser treatment. These treatments can<br />

be combined to achieve the desired results.<br />

Sclerotherapy is also used to remove<br />

superficial veins on the legs and face. In<br />

addition, the clinic offers mole mapping,<br />

mole removal and primary skin cancer<br />

removal.<br />

international networks, and a computerised<br />

system to search and try to assist most any<br />

request to the correct replacements makes<br />

them the place to visit for all your vehicle<br />

lighting requirements.<br />

Conveniently located in Sydenham, they<br />

have an extensive range of replacement<br />

light fittings for most makes and models of<br />

Japanese, European and New Zealand new<br />

vehicles, both new and secondhand. They are<br />

fully checked and in perfect working order,<br />

and Braxton guarantee that all their fittings<br />

are warrantable.<br />

They import and export both new and used<br />

car parts so that whatever make or model<br />

your vehicle is, they may be able to help.<br />

Containers arrive monthly from abroad, full<br />

of new and used lamps, and within the BE<br />

Group, over 100,000 lamps are available.<br />

The team at Braxton Car Lights also<br />

specialises in repairs for light adjuster and<br />

light conversion of American car lights, and<br />

their repair service includes plastic welding,<br />

drying out and resealing, re-silvering and<br />

lens refurbishment. They work closely with<br />

garage workshops, and their services can be<br />

arranged through your own local garage on<br />

your behalf.<br />

Sales manager Richard Vernimmen says<br />

that their team is dedicated to saving their<br />

customers’ money, whether on late model<br />

cars with expensive parts or early models<br />

where replacements are hard to find. The team<br />

of three expert professionals at Braxton have<br />

over 60 years of experience between them<br />

in the automotive industry to help you with<br />

your needs.<br />

Their aim at Braxton is to supply their<br />

customers the parts that they require<br />

at a pocket-friendly price. And with<br />

heaps of available stock, they will do<br />

everything to provide a solution to their car<br />

light-searching exercise.<br />

Street, between Buchan and Gasson streets.<br />

AN ECLECTIC ESTABLISHMENT<br />

As featured in <strong>February</strong> STYLE Taste: Vanessa Ortynsky discovers<br />

Urban Corner Cafe has much more to offer than initially meets the eye.<br />

ON the former site of the Bower Hotel<br />

in New Brighton stands the Urban<br />

Corner Cafe (alongside with e<br />

Bower), which is one of the most<br />

eclectic establishments in the city.<br />

Urban Corner is uniquely<br />

Christchurch in that it’s constructed of<br />

18 shipping containers. It’s a standout<br />

on the landscape, situated near the<br />

residential red zone and overlooking<br />

the Avon River. Upon setting foot<br />

inside this spacious establishment, you<br />

immediately forget about its modular<br />

construction methods.<br />

With its warm and family-friendly<br />

vibe, Urban Corner has become a<br />

community hub for New Brighton<br />

locals. e restaurant serves up brunch, lunch and<br />

dinner on a daily basis. Menu items are seasonal and<br />

the Pork Belly Burger served with coleslaw and<br />

cranberry sauce is a must-try for summer.<br />

ere’s also a kids menu and a playground outside,<br />

catering to mums looking for a place to bring the little<br />

ones for a play date. ere’s Farmyard Animal Day with<br />

pony rides on the last Sunday of every month in<br />

summer, weather permitting, which includes a Llama<br />

with a bad haircut and ponies of all sizes. As well as a<br />

separate shipping container that can be hired for kids<br />

parties.<br />

With plenty of entertainment for the older crowd as<br />

well, ‘Stitch n Bitch’ is hosted by a local<br />

artists and is every second Monday.<br />

It’s an excellent spot to discover new<br />

Kiwi artists and local talent.<br />

e dining room is adorned with<br />

brightly-coloured kitschy decor. You<br />

can purchase any of the art that lines<br />

the walls of this establishment. You’re<br />

sure to get a laugh out of some of the<br />

quirky tongue-in-cheek posters and<br />

signage.<br />

Sharing the premises with e<br />

Bower proves advantageous as Urban<br />

Corner features an extensive beer and<br />

wine list without the central-city price<br />

tag. e Friday menu comes with a<br />

$20 price tag, there is always events<br />

and special deals - including Wednesday and ursday<br />

feed the family of four for $50. Keep an eye on their<br />

Facebook page for even more stellar specials. If you are<br />

looking for a takeaway, there is a full range of cabinet<br />

available too.<br />

A little bit different from your traditional cafe and<br />

bar, this friendly place is sure to delight. If you’re<br />

looking for a local eatery, or keen to experience the<br />

warmth and hospitality of the eastern suburbs. Urban<br />

Corner is a sure bet.<br />
