Oldest collegian

flew secret

war missions

• By Julia Evans

AT 101-YEARS-OLD, Naylor Hillary will

be the oldest collegian at the St Andrew’s

centenary this weekend.

Like many of the college’s 14,000 previous

students, he has had an interesting past.

Mr Hillary is one of the last living veterans

of the Royal Air Force’s Tempsford 138

Special Duties Squadron, which he was a

navigator for in World War 2.

THe squadron specialised in dropping

resistance fighters and their supplies behind

enemy lines in a Mk IV Short Stirling.

Its existence was so classified, it wasn’t

even acknowledged until 1989,

and the full story has still not

come to light.

At the end of last year Mr

Hillary was awarded the

French Legion d’Honneur

medal (right) by the French

ambassador for his services.

He doesn’t talk about it much

– life is a lot quieter for him now.

He reads the paper each

morning, takes long walks and

goes to church every Sunday

without fail.

THere’s an All Blacks jersey

hanging on his wall signed by

Richie McCaw. Mr Hillary’s grandson

organised it for his 100th birthday.

He was chuffed, he watches the rugby

whenever it’s on.

But Mr Hillary said his career really

began when he started attending St

Andrew’s in 1929.

“I had three older sisters so mum and dad

packed me off to board at St Andrew’s to

toughen me up,” he said.

THe cold showers, morning runs around the

school paddock and open air sleeping

quarters did the trick, he said.

IT’S A bit of a St Andrew’s

College edition this week.

We have comprehensive coverage

of this weekend’s 100th

anniversary of the school, which

includes a profile on the college

rector Christine Leighton, who

has been at St Andrew’s for 10

years now.

On the front page, reporter Julia

Evans caught up with 101-year-old

Naylor Hillary, the college’s oldest

old boy going to the festivities.

During the war, Naylor was

part of a secret operation which

dropped people and supplies

behind enemy lines in France to

help the Resistance. Naylor was

a navigator on those missions, a

critical part of the jigsaw. Pinpoint

accuracy was needed to get the

people to the right spot and away

from the Germans.

$30,000 funding loss for centre

• By Julia Evans

FUNDS EARMARKED for

the Shirley Community Centre

rebuild will instead go towards

housing a social worker at the

Redwood Plunket rooms.

Initially, $100,000 was

included in the city council’s

2017-18 draft Annual Plan for

the centre’s rebuild, but that has

been reduced to $70,000.

The $30,000 difference is

going towards repairing the

Redwood building, which will

be used mostly by a community

board-funded social worker, as

well as Plunket.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said the Plunket room repairs

are needed urgently.

But there is absolutely no

way the community board will

endorse any hindrance to the

Shirley Community Centre’s

rebuild, she said.

“We’re still dealing with

a lot of mental health issues

in our ward, particularly in

those areas where there is clear

deprivation,” she said.

Ms Jones said the Canterbury

District Health Board should

step up more in funding social

workers but she is aware it is

very stretched.

STILL WAITING: The Shirley Community Centre will eventually be rebuilt at its old site on

Shirley Rd. ​

The shift of money won’t

affect the community centre

rebuild’s progress as it is

still in the pre-build and design

stage.

The money will be made up

further down the track as it is

only being moved for the 2017-

18 Annual Plan period.

“Funding for that community

centre is not even open for

negotiation,” she said.

The centre’s funding has

already come under scrutiny

several times to the frustration

of the community.

At the city

council’s

meeting, board

members and

city councillors

Pauline Cotter

(left) and Mike

Davidson

came out in support of the

amendment.

Cr Cotter said there’s a great

need for the rooms in Redwood

immediately and it runs a really

supportive programme.

The Shirley Community

Centre was damaged beyond

repair in the February 22,

2011, earthquake, and was

demolished in early 2012.

It has since been confirmed

that the new centre will be

built on the same site on Shirley

Rd.

In Brief

CYCLEWAY FEEDBACK

The city council has begun public

consultation over the planned

Nor’West Arc cycleway. It is

currently seeking feedback on the

initial stages of the cycleway from

Cashmere through to Canterbury

University. Consultation on the

remaining section, which will

see it eventually connect to the

Northern Line cycleway near St

James Park in Papanui, will begin

later this year. The city council

said the planned route aimed to

connect the Heathcote River and

future Ōpāwaho River cycle routes

to the University of Canterbury.

It will provide a safe, direct and

attractive cycle route, while

minimising potential impacts on

residents and businesses.

the Canon Eyecon high school

photography award. She won

$3000 worth of photography

St Andrew’s College

Oldest collegian flew

secret war missions

•From page 1

Mr Hillary was born and

raised in Christchurch. He lived

in Opawa before being going to

St Andrew’s.

He played rugby and tennis,

but it was an affinity for

mathematics that Mr Hillary

said he took from his time at St

Andrew’s.

“Because I was interested

in mathematics, when I had a

chance with the air force, I went

on as a navigator. You were

calculating all the time,” he said

He said he doesn’t think he was

a very bright student.

Mr Hillary was 18 when he

left St Andrew’s to join the Royal

New Zealand Air Force and go

on to take part in the Royal Air

Force Tempsford squadron.

“I have very pleasant memories

of my time there,” he said.

Even beyond his working life,

Mr Hillary has had a special

connection with his old school.

His son David attended the

college in the 60s and three

grandsons, Gareth, Rhys and

James Bissland after that – even

now his six-year-old great

grandson, Henry, is one of the

college’s youngest pupils.

Together they will be cutting

the anniversary cake at the

founder’s day assembly on Friday.

It’s very special going back to

the school with a great grandson

for a fourth generation, Mr

Hillary said.

Even Mr Hillary’s daughter

Pam Bissland worked on

the committee for the 75th

anniversary and said if it were

open to girls then she would’ve

gone to St Andrew’s as well.

Our family has a special

connection to the school, it’s an

important part of my life, Mr

Hillary said.

Christine Leighton

St Andrew’s first female rector

Christine Leighton is

rector of St Andrew’s

College, which is

celebrating its 100

year anniversary this

weekend. She talks

to Julia Evans about

the importance of the

school’s community and

how it plans to mark its

centenary

So, beginning with a bit of

background, how did you come

to be rector at St Andrew’s?

I’ve been working in education

in New Zealand for 37 years and

I’ve had a wide-ranging experience

through New Zealand

schools. I’ve taught at state and

integrated schools, single sex

and co-educational schools, but

this is my first time working at

an independent school in New

Zealand. I’ve come to my 10th

year as rector at St Andrew’s,

but before this, I was principal

of St Hilda’s Collegiate School

in Dunedin for nine years. It’s

hard to believe 10 years have

gone. Obviously, I’ve been rector

through some interesting times

but I’ve absolutely loved it.

What is it about St Andrew’s

that drew you in? Did you think

it would be a new challenge in

your career?

I was attracted back to St

Andrew’s largely because it is a

co-educational college. I’d been

educated in a co-educational

school myself and I believe that

it’s the best way to prepare young

people for their futures. It’s also a

natural environment for students

to be in, so I was delighted to

come back. Christchurch seemed

like a nice place to come to and

St Andrew’s has a great reputation.

I was also attracted to the

idea of independent education,

where you have more resource

available to you and more opportunity

to do things a bit differently.

I was an english teacher

before I moved into leadership

positions and I had taught at an

SPEECH: Christine Leighton has been rector at St Andrew’s for the past 10 years.

independent international school

in England for a year earlier in

my career, which was an experience

I really enjoyed. So after

all that, I decided to take on the

challenge to see what I could lead

St Andrew’s to be.

Have you taught at St Andrew’s

before or were you a

student yourself?

No, I’m from Auckland and

I did my english degree at

Auckland University. Actually,

I did my post-graduate teaching

diploma here in Christchurch at

what was known as the teacher’s

college back then, and my firstever

teaching placement was at St

Andrew’s. I was here for a whole

six weeks in 1980. Some of the

boys who were in my english

class that year are now on the

staff here.

So teaching has been a big

part of your life?

Yes, actually my husband’s

also a teacher at St Margaret’s

College. He teaches chemistry so

we’ve been in education all our

lives and we met when we were

both teachers at our first teaching

jobs at Nayland College in

Nelson. We have two sons. One

of them, Tom, teaches primary

school in London, he’s doing

his OE teaching over there. My

son Alex just got his first job in

geological engineering after finishing

his masters at Canterbury.

Alex went to St Andrew’s for

his final three years when I was

there, he’s very proud of being a

St Andrew’s boy. When the kids

were young, it was an interesting

juggle. I was a principal when

they were nine and six, they grew

up knowing mum and dad were

busy. We’ve just managed somehow.

I do think it’s an important

message for women that you can

do this, but there is sacrifice, you

can’t have everything. I’m sure

there are things the boys missed

out on in terms of my time and

attention, but it doesn’t seem to

have done them any harm. I’m

very proud of them.

You’ve been rector for some

really interesting times with the

earthquakes and now the centenary.

How has that been?

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster

really. When I get a chance to

look back on it, I’m sure I will

have a sense of satisfaction, but

at the moment, I never stop.

The world changes rapidly,

circumstances change rapidly

– it’s the kind of job where you

don’t get too much time to

stop and feel that sense of

satisfaction, you’ve just got to

keep going since you’re always

focusing on the next thing. Every

year is different, every year there

are new contexts that you’re

working in, and every year we

have about 250 new students

come into the college so it’s

always changing.

As St Andrew’s first female

rector, did you celebrate International

Women’s Day last

week?

I’m the 10th rector to be here,

but the first woman to be rector.

That’s quite an achievement really.

How important do you

think St Andrew’s is to the wider

Christchurch community?

We are a big community.

We’ve got 1450 students and

13,000 old collegians, so it’s a

huge community, but we work

really hard at not being inward

looking.

So this weekend is the

celebration for the centenary –

that must be a great

feeling?

We’ve been working towards

this for four or five years and

part of celebrating the centenary

is knowing and understanding

the stories and history behind

the college. We’ve really spent

that five years learning about

those stories. Recently, we gave

all the students in the college a

centenary badge, they were really

excited to get those badges and

they wear them with pride.

What does the centenary

mean for the community?

We actually launched the

centenary in September of last

year, so we’ve already had a

number of events, which has

been great to warm us up for the

big weekend. The school started

on March 17, 1917.

involved in more college history

That was the dedication service

of the first year of St Andrew’s so

that is the day that every year we

celebrate our founder’s day on.

We’ve planned a whole weekend

of events that will engage all

of our college and the wider

community. We have present

students coming and that’s from

preschool to year 13, we have

recent collegians who have left

in the last five or six years right

up to those who were here in

the 1930s also coming. Several

people in their 90s are coming

back and the oldest collegian that

we know of, who is 101, will be

cutting the cake at the founder’s

day assembly. We have parents

that want to come to events and

old collegians of all various ages

– some coming from as far away

as England for the weekend.

What’s on the itinerary for

the weekend?

On Friday, we’re having a college

tour for 700 guests who are

also coming to the founder’s day

assembly. Then in the afternoon,

we’re holding our own highland

games and a cocktail evening for

1200 collegians at the college. On

Saturday, we have a whole college

fete, which is a huge event and

all the students are involved in it.

We’ve got displays, stalls, races,

rides and entertainment – all the

music and cultural groups are

performing on that day as well.

Later on Saturday, there’s a gala

dinner at Horncastle Arena for

1500 people, which is the largest

sit down dinner in Christchurch

since 2009. Then on Sunday,

we’re having a chapel service,

cricket game and old collegians

concert in the college hall and,

on Monday, there will be a big

sense of relief and achievement.

That’s a busy weekend, what

do you want people to take out

of it?

One of the things we wanted

to do was tell our stories and we

know the best way to do that is

visually. We’ve created a timeline

of 100 years of history and that is

absolutely fantastic for everyone

to engage with. We’ve got a

centennial book and a centennial

movie, which is 15 minutes long,

so we’ll launch that as part of our

weekend and have viewings. I’m

seeing the preview today, which

is very exciting. In our gymnasium,

we’re launching 100 years

of sport, where we’re celebrating

more than 80 collegians, staff

and present students who have

played or been in the top of their

sport. They had to have been

either in the Olympics, the Commonwealth

Games or the world

championships. Then we’ve

also had a centennial orchestral

piece written by an old collegian,

which is 11 minutes long, has

our college song incorporated

and tells our story through the

music. Then, a preparatory

class has created a time capsule,

which was buried yesterday. It

has been hermetically sealed in a

specially-made box to preserve it

for the next 100 years.

So you what do you think the

next 100 years has in store for

St Andrew’s?

The centenary is about looking

back and being grateful for

what we have been given. We’re

celebrating 100 years and where

we’ve got to now from our very

humble beginnings to the extent

which we’ve been able to develop.

We want to show gratitude for

the legacy we’ve inherited from

the people that have come before

us. But the theme is what our

legacy is moving forward, and

what we now have to contribute

to ensure the people of the future

are going to have the same opportunities

we’ve enjoyed. I have

had the thought that maybe

there will be a five-year-old here

at the moment who will still be

alive for the 200th anniversary.

There must be something

special about the college’s community

if people are coming

from near and far to celebrate?

There’s something very humbling

about being part of this

community and the opportunity

to see and understand the impact

education has had on people’s

lives. There’s the sense that these

people are reconnecting because

they want to say thank you and

show some gratitude and that’s

wonderful. Often that comes

with maturity and at a later stage

in your life. But the thing I love

to see is that a lot of our old collegians,

who are only just out of

school, have that same feeling.

I think that’s quite strange and

unusual for young people to

want to come back. We’ve got an

unbelievable number of recently

left old collegians coming back

for this weekend and that makes

me feel really happy. I think that

has to reflect the gratitude they

have to have come here in the

first place, because students do

realise how fortunate they are

to be here. But to me, it reflects

the amazing time that they had

when they came here so they just

want to reconnect.

• By Gabrielle Stuart

JUST A year ago, Leanne Crawford could

barely walk, had lost 30kg, was constantly

sick, and had to put both her work and her

wedding on hold – and she had no idea what

was going wrong.

This weekend, she will take on the 14km

The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero Real

Estate event, which she will walk, and she

won’t be doing it alone.

Her partner, friends and many of the

nurses who helped her get on her feet

again plan to do the walk beside her –

41 people in total – raising money to

help others with the same condition

get treatment.

The 30-year-old began feeling sick

in 2014, but initially doctors did not

know what was wrong.

It took almost two years for her to

be diagnosed and find a treatment,

because she was facing a complex

mix of parasites in her intestines,

crohn’s disease and endometriosis.

For much of that time she couldn’t

work, and she had to postpone her

wedding three times.

“It was like my life was turned

upside down. It was really, really

frightening just not knowing what

was going on,” she said.

After a Christchurch gastroenterology

specialist, Steven Ding,

diagnosed her problems, she has made

a gradual recovery.

NOR’WEST NEWS

But she said it was only possible because

of the help she received, and the diagnosis

tools provided by the Canterbury Bowel and

Liver Trust.

“The things that finally got me well cost a

lot of money, so I wanted to give something

back,” she said.

She has already raised almost $1500

through people sponsoring her run.

She said she had never done anything like

the City2Surf before, and after being sick

for so long being able to cross the finish line

would feel like a giant victory.

“I’m sure there will be tears,” she said.

“I finally feel like I’ve got my life back. I

can’t go for drinks or dinner like normal,

but I am still able to work, which is amazing.”

She works for Bupa as an activity organiser,

and said they held her job for her, in

spite of the fact she was off work for three

months.

She has also rescheduled her wedding, and

plans to marry her partner of eight years,

Craig Corboy, this December.

“I’m determined I’m going to get down the

aisle this time,” she said.

THE ROTARY Club of

Papanui raised more than

$16,000 for local community

groups through its annual

gift-wrapping stations at

Northlands.

The stations were staffed by

volunteers from the club and 10

local community group teams.

In February the club held a

special presentation event at

the Papanui Club on Sawyers

Arms Rd where they meet every

Thursday.

Club member Verdi van Beek

said each group expressed its

thanks to the club and Northlands

management for making

the fundraising opportunity

available.

All 10 groups were presented

with cheques of $1670.

Allenvale School said it is

DONATION:

The Rotary

Club of

Papanui

with

members

of the

community

groups they

donated

more than

$16,000 to. ​

Organisations receive grants

going to provide more sensory

processing equipment for the

children at the school.

St John Cranmer Section

cadet programme, St John No

3 preparatory youth group and

the Belfast Redwood Anglican

Parish Church youth group will

spend their money on camp-ins,

outdoor learning experiences

for young people an Easter

camp.

Papanui High School will

provide funds for its Japanese

language students’ trip to Japan,

where they will experience the

culture and foster a better understanding

of the language.

The Papanui High School Parent

Teacher Association said it

will use its money to assist with

events at the school.

Soroptimists is going to provide

horse riding for disabled

people, a provision for girl

guides and a night shelter for

women and babies effected by

family violence.

Aratupu Preschool and Nursery

wants to buy more outdoor

equipment.

Kiwi Family Trust said it will

help families in need, knitters,

Plunket groups and camps for

children.

O’Neill School of Dance will

put the money towards the

32 dancers that are attending

the World Irish Dancing

Championships in Dublin in

April.

Mr van Beek said Papanui

Rotary and Northlands wanted

to thank the public for support

of the programme so they can

continue to help others.

Get prepared for winter

Fire risk management officer

Mark Thomas talks about the

precautions you should take to

stay safe as winter approaches

Murphy’s Law applies.

Last week I talked about my

frustration at the number of

people still burning rubbish

and vegetation in ultra-dry

conditions.

So what happens? It rains and

then instantly turns cold enough

to say summer’s over, welcome

to winter. And people start

lighting their fireplaces, causing

more calls, in one case from a

disgruntled neighbour, and in

another from the house where

the fire had been lit because

the smoke wasn’t exiting up

the chimney, but was filling the

home up instead.

So in what seems an

unusually early cold season,

the recommendation is to get

your chimney flue swept – now.

Smoky chimneys are one thing,

but just about every year at the

onset of winter we have house

fires caused by fireplaces

that have sat unused for six

months.

While we are at it, this is also

certainly the time to have electric

blankets checked and certified.

There are a couple of appliance

firms that provide this service

quite cheaply.

For peace of mind, it’s a strong

recommendation from us that

everyone should have the blanket

checked annually.

I haven’t mentioned kitchen

fires for a while. That’s not

because they haven’t been

happening, but more because

I don’t want to sound like a

cracked record.

One third of all house fires

start in the kitchen. This week

there were three, though

unusually, none of them involved

ambulance care for house

occupants.

Finally, we are just a few weeks

from daylight saving ending.

Stick smoke alarm batteries on

the shopping list now!

Can we do things better?

Frustrations

around

heavy

roadworks

in the north

west are

testing even

the most

patient

drivers, says Ali Jones but

she’s assuring residents

there’s a logic behind it

I am not the world’s most patient

driver, as my children and

husband will attest to.

When the kids were little,

they travelled with me a lot as

we drove to meetings here and

there.

I’m not going to tell you what

their first words were but I can’t

think where they got them from.

The roadworks in the

Papanui-Innes area are testing

even the most ‘well balanced’

amongst us right now.

Whenever, there’s something

that on the face of it seems to be

illogical or could be done better,

I’m the first to call or email a

city council officer or our board

support staff to find out more.

This happened recently with

the screamingly frustrating

work going on at the Rutland

and Westminster St corner and

DISRUPTION: Businesses in

Rutland St need support in

tough times.

further along Rutland St to

Innes Rd.

Why so long? Why so few

people working? It helps doesn’t

it, to have all the information

before going off half-cocked.

I was told in a very detailed

and prompt response from the

head of the cycleway projects

that three strands of work are

happening at once – the laying

of fibre cables, the replacement

or repair of wastewater and

stormwater pipes and finally the

cycleway construction.

If these were done one after

the other, it would take much

longer and see roads dug up

that were sealed by the previous

crews.

Of course, there are always

things we can do better – liaising

more with businesses and

residents face to face, providing

good signage alerting customers

to the fact shops are still open as

well as proactively encouraging

people to support the businesses

at a tough time, there are three

right there.

I know our officers do that but

sometimes we don’t consider

enough things like how well a

business owner can speak or

read English, or whether they

use the internet.

Don’t get me wrong, most of

the time we (and I mean the

city council) do get it right but

we don’t see those stories on the

front page of the paper.

We are a ‘can-do’ council and

if there’s anything you think we

can do better, tell us through

our councillors and community

board members.

That’s what we are there for.

Readers respond to an

article in Nor’West News on

a new scheme at Jellie Park

encouraging people to ride

their cycles and leave their

cars at home

Jane Houghton – Great to

see trials like this. All encouragement

for biking is great. Once

sports centre is built in the east

I’ll like to accept this challenge

if it has been initiated as a long

term plan.

Michael Rae – Good idea but

how many bikes will start getting

stolen.

Anna Henderson – What a

great initiative!

Cathryn Lucy – I think

they’re going the wrong way

about this. People respond to instant

gratification – so how about

if they bike, they get a discount?

The discount could be 20 per cent

off, so really the same as biking

five times and getting the sixth

free. But they get something for it

immediately, and thus are more

motivated. What about a current

bus pass being shown could get

a discount of some kind too? I

reckon it should be discounted

for people who bike as people

respond to instant gratification.

Ten per cent off if you bus, 20 per

cent off if you bike? I say 20 per

cent because they want you to

bike five times to get a free pass

for the sixth. Well, divide the

cost of a free pass by five and

spread it out over each session,

and people are more likely to go

as they get an instant reward for

the effort.

Paul Welford – Free entry

for biking . . . walk home

afterwards once your bikes been

stolen.

Heather Wilkins – We have

a lot further to bike as well and

one does need to be safe on the

roads which often you aren’t.

Christine Weston – Great

idea but we have a lot further

to bike from the east side so it

should be based on distance

travelled not times.

Garry Mitchell – Stick the

bike in the vehicle and wheel it

in.

MATT DOOCEY

MP FOR WAIMAKARIRI

CHAT WITH MATT

The Belfast Community Network

(BCN) and fellow members of the

North West Collective are doing great

work in our communities. I brought

Minister for the Community and

Voluntary Sector Hon Alfred Ngaro to

meet members this month for some

valuable, two-way information sharing

and to visit the BCN at their Sheldon

Park offices. It’s important to me to

provide opportunities for all our local

organisations to talk directly to our

Ministers.

The Building Stronger Communities

public meeting I held at the Belfast

Rugby Club with Minister Ngaro on

2 March received great feedback

from our local community groups and

residents. It was exciting to see people

get involved in how we can support

our communities as they grow. Our

regeneration is not just about the

bricks and mortar but keeping our

communities connected and resourced.

I enjoyed getting involved in the

launch of the Good Night, Sleep Tight

charitable trust in Casebrook earlier

this month. Trust members are

working hard to ensure children in

greater Christchurch have access to

warm winter bedding and pyjamas,

and I encourage everyone to support

this great work.

I joined our community in marking

the sixth anniversary of the Canterbury

earthquake at the memorial service

and unveiling of the earthquake

national memorial. We will always

remember those who lost their lives

on that terrible day.

Hello

Bakery offers Kiwi

favourites fresh every day

When it comes to tasty Kiwi favourites

baked fresh every day, there’s really no place

like Ma Baker. Owners Paul and Nicky

Garven have been in the bakery business

since 1995, and since then have built up a

strong and loyal customer following.

Their team of bakers start early in the

morning making everything from scratch

to bring their customers fresh products

every day. These include their delicious

bread, which is used to make Ma Baker’s

famous rolls and sandwiches as well as

being available for purchase.

In addition to the fresh bread, filled rolls

and sandwiches, they also have delicious

scones, tarts and slices, as well as the more

sophisticated offerings. These include

donuts filled with continental custard, filos,

paninis and quiches.

And that’s not forgetting the tradie

favourites for those hungry road and

construction workers – pies, stuffed

sausages, filled potatoes, saveloy toasties,

sticky buns and cinnamon cream donuts.

For morning and afternoon teas and

family dinners Ma Baker has scrumptious

family fruit pies, large bacon and egg pies,

iced cakes, cream sponges, savoury packs

and the popular authentic Southland

cheese roll ups. There is also a large range

of mouth-watering biscuits made with real

butter.

With Easter just a few weeks away, the

bakers are currently producing the famous

Ma Baker Easter buns. The secret to their

popularity and success is that the mixed

peel has been taken out and dried apricot

pieces included, and with just the right

amount of spice added, these buns are a

winner.

Ma Baker has two locations – Bishopdale

Village Mall in Farrington Ave and

Edgeware Village on the corner of Edgeware

Road and Colombo Street. Both shops have

plenty of customer parking just outside the

door, so customers can quickly pop in and

pick up their purchases, or alternatively

can relax at the indoor or outdoor tables

and enjoy the tasty food along with a hot

coffee or tea, iced tea, frappe, milkshake or

smoothie.

Merivale Retirement Village - when only the best is good enough.

Retirement Village Fundraising For Local Hospice

Merivale Retirement Village in Browns Road

has a philosophy of creating an ‘organisational

social conscience’, and is constantly looking for

opportunities to give back and to engage with the

local community, Regional Manager Jon Amesbury

says.

“Our directors and staff believe that aged-care

facilities should strive to become hubs of their local

communities and provide exciting opportunities

for residents to be involved with local community

projects,” Jon says.

“To achieve this, we connect with local groups

and organisations, with the aim of creating a more

inclusive society for everyone.”

The village has recently demonstrated its commitment

to being a good neighbour by formally adopting

MERIVALE

RETIREMENT VILLAGE

Nurse Maude Hospice as a charitable fundraising

cause.

To kick start the fundraising, Merivale Retirement

Village has organised an event they hope will

prompt Christchurch people to give generously to

the cause.

The event, on March 19, involves pushing a specially

adapted hospital bed around the 6K City2Surf route.

Twelve Merivale Retirement Village nurses and staff

and five Nurse Maude Hospice staff will push the

adapted hospital bed as they run the City2Surf,

collecting money in buckets along the way.

The bed was adapted and donated by InvaCareNZ

andhas had some custom decoration courtesy of

the children of the Angelcare Preschool in Somme

Street with their own artwork and designs.

Staff from Merivale Retirement Village

and Nurse Maude Hospice will be

pushing a bed to raise funds in the

upcoming City2Surf.

St Andrew’s rowers defend Bell Cup

• By Gordon Findlater

ST ANDREW’S College retained

the Bell Cup for the most overall

points at the South Island

secondary school championships

on Twizel’s Lake Ruataniwha.

The winter-like conditions

over the weekend didn’t slow

down St Andrew’s, who

came home with eight gold,

three silver and a bronze

medal.

All of St Andrew’s gold medals

came in the boys’ events.

They won the under-15 coxed

octuple sculls, under-15 coxed

four, under-16 coxed eight,

under-18 coxed four, under-15

coxed eight, under-16 coxed

four and under-18 coxless pair

oars.

They also took out the much

anticipated boys’ under-18

coxed eight in dominant

fashion. St Andrew’s powered

to gold more than six seconds

clear of defending Maadi Cup

champions Christ’s College in

second, and Christchurch Boys’

High School in third.

Even more remarkable was

that the St Andrew’s crew broke

the six-minute mark with a time

of 5min 58.29sec.

If the boys’ race was clear cut,

the girls’ under-18 coxed eight

was quite the opposite.

Just over one second was all

that separated gold from bronze.

Gold went to Rangi Ruru Girls’

School with a time of 6min

51.08sec, with Christchurch

Girls’ High School just a bow ball

behind in 6min 51.52sec, and St

Margaret’s College taking bronze

with 7min 0.93sec.

Rangi Ruru had the second

largest medal haul at the

weekend – the most of any girls’

school – winning eight gold, one

silver and two bronze medals.

Rangi Ruru director of rowing

Mark Cotham said these were

very pleasing results in the

build up to the Maadi Cup,

but there’s still a lot of water to

go under the bridge and the

girls will continue training

hard over the next couple of

weeks.

“This is a helpful check-up for

us all as we look ahead to Maadi,

but it is business as usual until

then,” said Cotham.

Schools will now turn their

attention to the Maadi Cup,

which takes place from March 27

to April 2.

Results:

Andrew’s eight of

Burnside win Mainland title,

aim to spike at nationals

• By Gordon Findlater

BURNSIDE HIGH School have

continued their winning ways as

they build towards three straight

national volleyball crowns.

The Burnside girls’ team took

out the Mainland secondary

schools’ division 1 title last week

after defeating Marlborough

Girls’ College 3-0 in the final.

They will now play to gain a

spot in the top 32 at the New

Zealand secondary schools’

championships at the end of the

month in Palmerston North

with a top-three finish at this

weekend’s Canterbury championships.

Burnside will be back at full

strength for the championships

after being without coach Sam

Ryburn and key players, Chloe

Mikaera and Libby Collett, who

have been with the New Zealand

team at the under-18 Asian girls’

volleyball championship in

China.

Meanwhile, the division 2

girls’ title at last week’s Mainland

tournament went to Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School who beat Waimea B

3-0 in their final.

Rangi Ruru volleyball convenor

Paula Rule said finishing

top of the pool going into the

semi-final against Lincoln High

School was a great confidence

boost for the team.

DOMINANT: There was no

slowing down an

under-strength Burnside

girls’ volleyball team (above),

who went undefeated at the

Mainland championships.

Meanwhile, Rangi Ruru

claimed the division 2 title at

the championships. ​

“It was a huge weekend for the

girls and a great opportunity to

build strong combinations leading

into nationals,” Ms Rule said.

The division 1 boys’ title was

won by Shirley Boys’ High

School and the division 2 title by

John McGlashan College.

The Canterbury championships

will take place at the Pioneer

Recreation and Sport Centre

from Friday to Sunday.

RYMAN HEALTHCARE

The best of care at

every life stage

When residents move into Ryman

Healthcare’s Ngaio Marsh Retirement

Village in Papanui, they and their families

can be confident that all their needs will be

met, no matter what their stage of life or

state of health.

The village offers a range of facilities from

townhouses for independent residents, to

assisted living in serviced apartments for

those who require some assistance day-today,

through to the care centre’s resthome

and hospital care – all located in the same

lovely environment.

“What we provide is a full continuum of

care,” says village manager Anna Thomson.

“As our residents’ needs change they get

the care they require, while still retaining

their friendships with other residents and

relationships with the staff they know.

That’s a huge advantage for them. It’s really

their ‘Ngaio family’. We become part of

their family and Ngaio is their home,” says

Anna.

“This continuum of care also gives their

families peace of mind knowing they

don’t have to be concerned about finding

somewhere else for their loved one should

their health needs change.”

Ngaio Marsh also provides respite care,

so families who are caring for a relative

at home can go on holiday, or just have a

break, confident that their loved one is in

good hands.

“This also gives people the chance to try

out village life,” Anna says. “Often they will

like it so much they decide to move in, and

if they do they can have the same room

they stayed in during respite care.”

Employing quality staff is a key factor

at Ngaio Marsh, with all staff members

required to undertake a foundation course

in aged care, which includes the different

levels of care provided.

Ngaio Marsh is set in beautiful, wellmaintained

grounds featuring rose gardens

and other colourful plantings, a stream

and walkways. Facilities include a bowling

green, indoor bowls, pool table, petanque,

mini golf, a community centre, library, hair

salon, swimming pool and a spa pool.

The stunning atrium, with its waterfall

and lush foliage, is a popular spot for

families to get together for birthday parties

and other special occasions.

With quality nutrition being a key aspect

of a happy, healthy life for residents, Ryman

has introduced the innovative Project

Delicious. This provides more meal options

and a menu offering good old-fashioned

home-cooked meals, as well as some exotic

new creations.

Ryman’s Triple A exercise programme

provides exercises designed to maintain

mobility and muscle strength, and prevent

falls. Programmes are tailored for residents’

differing levels of health and mobility, and

include exercises for resthome and hospital

residents.

To ensure residents are kept stimulated

and entertained, the Engage programme

provides daily activities and special events.

A recent event that proved a great success

at Ngaio Marsh was the ‘Olympic Games’.

Residents of four Ryman Healthcare

villages competed against each other in a

range of sports, with medals handed out to

the winners and place-getters.

“We see our residents thriving,” says

Anna. “Many of them say coming here

was the best thing they have ever done. It

also helps family relationships. With sons

and daughters no longer having to be the

caregivers they can have fun with their

parent and enjoy seeing them happy and

well looked after.”

Resthome resident Daniel Morel recently

came to Ngaio Marsh so he could be in

the same residence as his wife Shirley. The

couple had moved up from Timaru a few

years ago, but his wife became seriously ill

and needed care. Daniel stayed on his own

at home for a while, but realised he wasn’t

really managing so moved into a resthome

elsewhere in Christchurch.

Now happily living at Ngaio Marsh,

where Shirley receives the hospital care she

needs, Daniel, 77, is settled and enjoying

life. First thing every morning he dons his

dressing gown and goes to visit Shirley. The

rest of his day is spent chatting to other

residents, reading and relaxing in his room.

“I love it here,” he says, “for every

reason you could think of. The new menu

is absolutely fantastic and the staff are

wonderful. They are always smiling. They

must be well chosen.”

Daniel Morel enjoys life at Ngaio Marsh

and the company of the other residents.

Another happy resthome resident is

Betty Loader, who turned 90 on January

31. She has been at Ngaio Marsh for many

years, first moving into a townhouse with

her husband, later moving to a serviced

apartment as her needs changed, then the

resthome, where she now receives hospital

care.

Her daughter Kay Parry visits her every

Kay Parry with her mother Betty Loader.

Kay is thrilled with the care her mother

receives at Ngaio Marsh.

day, often at mealtimes. Kay is thrilled

with every aspect of the care her mother

receives.

“I’ve learnt a lot over the last few years,”

she says. “Mum has gone through some

dramatic health changes and for a while

she was bedridden for days. She went from

resthome to hospital care, but stayed in the

same room, which was wonderful.”

Retirement living and care

at its best!

RED CROSS

Ensuring a safe work place

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.

Creating a Better

Denture Experience

When was the last time you

had your dentures checked?

Call us today for your FREE

check today.

At Better Denture, the denture clinic

situated in Brynley Street, Hornby, the aim

is to take the hassle out of getting new teeth,

says experienced dental technician and

owner Chris Castle.

“We focus on making it easier for people

coming here to have dentures made or

maintained with our relaxed environment

and friendly approach.”

Chris understands that people can be a bit

nervous about coming into a dental clinic,

but he makes sure everyone feels welcome

and comfortable at Better Denture by

breaking down those barriers and putting

them at ease.

The process of having new dentures made

and fitted usually takes four appointments,

and Chris explains the process step by step

so patients understand what’s being done,

further complete after care is provided at no

additional cost.

“Every set of dentures is made to onsite

by hand, using higher grade materials as

standard, allowing us the ability to customise

every aspect of the process. We also aim to

cater toward the upkeep of existing dentures,

with same day repairs and relines on offer,

as well as being available on Saturdays,

allowing us to work around even the busiest

schedules,” he says.

“Our aim at Better Denture is to create

the best possible denture experience for

you, the customer, whether it be through

the products we custom create, the service

we provide or the manner in which strive to

achieve both of those goals.”

Anyone needing new dentures is invited

to contact Better Denture, phone 349 5050,

for a free consultation. The clinic is spacious

and welcoming, and patients are invited to

kitchen with island bench ensures effortless

family living and entertaining. Three double

bedrooms also open to decking, and are

served by two tiled bathrooms. A separate

laundry and double garage complete the

is exceptionally use-able, with large decks

and flat lawn areas.
