Burnside High’s leaky building repairs

• By Gabrielle Stuart

DESIGN FLAWS are believed

to be responsible for leaks in the

six-year-old $4 million Burnside

High School art and technology

block.

Similar leaks have also

been found in the school

administration buildings.

They will be repaired as part

of a $24 million repair and

redevelopment work plan at the

school, which is set to start this

year.

The cost of fixing the leaks is

not yet known, but is expected

to be assessed in the next few

weeks.

The building has been leaking

for more than two years, but

work to fix it was put on hold

while the Ministry of Education

assessed other earthquake

repairs and redevelopment work

at the school.

Burnside principal Phil

Holstein said the repair was

initially not expected to be done

until 2022.

It was brought forward to this

year, as the school was worried

damage would be done to the

building if the leaks were not

repaired, he said.

He said the architectural

design of the buildings was

believed to be responsible for the

leaks.

“Across the country, a lot of

school designs with this style

of architecture, particularly flat

roof buildings, a lot of them have

weather tightness issues,” he

said.

Alongside the repair work,

he said the school was set to be

refurbished and modernised.

“We want to provide the best

learning environment we can

for our students here, and that’s

ultimately what we’re after,” he

said.

Bringing the work forward

meant the school could start the

master-planning process with

the Ministry of Education soon,

he said.

rains down on

school netball

tournament

While most of the city was sheltering away from

the terrible weather conditions last week, hardy

students were out in the elements competing

in the South Island secondary schools junior

netball tournament. Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

and St Margaret’s College year 10 sides battled

it out at the Christchurch Netball Centre in

Hagley Park until it got too bad and the game

had to be called off.

The tournament was celebrating its 20th

anniversary, but Mother Nature had other ideas.

The competition, held from July 10-12, saw year

9 and 10 teams from around the South Island

compete. The grand finals were able to be

played after St Margaret’s came to the rescue

and offered their gym for the tournament.

THERE’S ONE big leaky problem

on page 1 today – Burnside High

School.

We reveal design flaws are

believed to be responsible for leaks

in the six-year-old $4 million art

Similar leaks have also been

found in the school administration

buildings.

The cost of fixing the leaks will

be known in the next couple of

The building has been leaking

for more than two years, but work

to fix it was put on hold while

The flat roof design appears to

be the cause of the damage.

No surprises there.

Hats off, or hats on to the netballers

No library bus for Merivale

• By Julia Evans

THE MERIVALE Precinct

Society is worried about the

lack of facilities for its ageing

population.

So the residents’ group came

up with a solution – to put the

mobile library bus stop there

again.

Deputy chairwoman

Denise Leighs approached the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board, which

raised the issue with the city

council.

However, the

city council said

Merivale does not

meet the criteria

to get the mobile

library bus back

Carolyn

Robertson

anytime soon.

“The mobile

library idea was

discussed at (the

Merivale Precinct Society’s)

May meeting as an ongoing

conversation about the lack

of facilities for the ageing

population,” Mrs Leighs said.

She said the library bus used

to stop in Merivale before the

earthquakes outside the JDV

cafe entrance on Aikmans Rd.

But city council libraries and

information manager Caroline

Robertson said the city council

would not be considering a stop

in Merivale.

“Previously the mobile library

did stop at Merivale but, at

the time, the area did not have

access to the same number of

library facilities it does now,” Ms

Robertson said.

In assessing the need for a

mobile stop, city council staff

have to consider a number of

factors.

“The mobile library operates

a service that targets specific

sectors of the community. This

includes travelling to those

parts of the city that do not have

adequate library facilities and

also sectors of the community

that are socially isolated or

vulnerable,” Ms Robertson said.

She said the city council is

also mindful of the distance to

the nearest library. Merivale

Mall is 2.9km from the Papanui

Library, 2.4km from the

Peterborough Library and 3km

from the Fendalton Library.

“In light of these aspects

and due to the need to service

other areas of the community

Elmwood

BUS: The

mobile

library used

to stop on

Aikmans Rd

but the city

council won’t

consider

bringing it

back.

. . . at this time, we will not

be considering offering a stop

in the Merivale area,” Ms

Robertson said.

Mrs Leighs will take the

response back to the Merivale

Precinct Society. The mobile

library route has 23 stops,

including various retirement

villages around the city.

there enough facilities for

the ageing population in

In Brief

CLUB’S PARKING TROUBLE

Parking is proving difficult

at Tulett Park in Casebrook

for members of the Nomads

football club. The club requested

additional parking from the

city council. City council staff

have advised that they will look

into marking individual parks

on Claridges Rd once other

construction work in the area has

been finished.

TRUCK HAZARD SOLVED

Delivery trucks which park at the

intersection of Trafford St and

Harewood Rd while servicing the

Harewood Dairy and Superette

could be a major factor in the

visibility problem for motorists

on the corner. The Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board was approached by a

resident who expressed concern

for the safety of both the drivers

and pedestrians. The trucks have

now been asked to park further

back from the corner.

EDGEWARE STORY BOARDS

The boards outside Edgeware

Rd’s Supervalue supermarket,

which tell the history of

Edgeware, have been put into

storage while the supermarket

is expanded. Once the work is

completed, the boards will be

returned to the street-front.

involved with the city council

graffiti programme since

2011. The role benefits the

community and those driving

through it by having any graffiti

removed in a timely manner.

Baptist Freedom Trust’s

mainly music project for over

five years.

She began by helping in the

kitchen and continues to offer

the music session.

Julian Dent

Mr Dent has donated his

time and energy for the past 10

years in keeping the grounds

of the iconic St Paul’s Anglican

Bill and Debbie Frame

Mr and Mrs Frame have

illnesses, chronic illnesses, are

elderly, unemployed or

are from minority ethnic

groups.

the public as a Justice of the

Peace for more than 15 years.

She has also been an active

panellist and facilitator for the

GOOD LUCK: Redwood man Patrick Bennett showed Grant

Dalton how happy he is to have the cup back in New Zealand.

Sealed with a kiss

• By Bridget Rutherford

PATRICK BENNETT had

waited a long time to see the

America’s Cup.

And during Emirates Team

New Zealand’s victory parade on

Wednesday, the Redwood man

got to give it a kiss.

Mr Bennett said he did not

know what possessed him to do

it. “It’s pretty unreal to see it,” he

said.

It was great to see the team

overcome its loss at the hands of

Oracle during the campaign in

San Francisco in 2013, he said.

Mr Bennett was one of about

6000 who braved the freezing

conditions to celebrate the

team’s 7-1 victory in Bermuda.

In spite of the conditions, Mr

Bennett said the cup was actually

“quite warm”.

“I’ve been waiting a long time

to see that.”

Pipe band leads parade, gets

up close with America’s Cup

• By Julia Evans

SNOW FLURRIES, sleet, rain

and near freezing temperatures

were not enough to stop the St

Andrew’s College pipe band

leading the America’s Cup

parade.

“Everybody playing warmed

to the idea, if you know what

I mean,” pipe leader Graeme

Bryce said.

Mr Bryce said last week’s

parade was a “golden

opportunity” for the band.

“Parades like that don’t

happen very often . . . everyone

was pretty excited,” he said.

It was a last minute phone

call from tourism organisation

ChristchurchNZ that brought

the band together.

“It was a little difficult because

of the school holidays but a lot

of kids replied quickly and

were all keen to play,” Mr Bryce

said.

There were 12 pipers and 10

drummers making up the band,

with ages ranging from 11 to 17.

Mr Bryce said the band didn’t

miss the opportunity to touch

the America’s Cup and get their

photo taken with it just before

the crew left.

FLAME FILES

Seal pup gets short shrift

• By Mark Thomas – specialist

fire investigator

IT WAS going to be the mother

of all storms apparently.

It turns out it wasn’t.

At least not in the city.

But it was bitterly cold, some

snow fell and on the hills it

managed to settle.

I’m sure the weather did have

some effect, however, with 16

motor accidents attended by our

crews in the week.

We did have the odd other

call that could have been attributed

to the weather.

Although the incident attended

by Harewood and Addington

crews in Hornby last Friday had

its origin in ignorance rather

than iciness.

A fire was lit in the fireplace

by a shivering occupant.

It’s just that this was a house

damaged back in the earthquakes

and the chimney had

been removed. The result was

quite fortunate really, with

smoke filling the ceiling and

then the house itself. Fortunate

because that smoke was all that

happened.

Could easily have resulted in

the loss of the home. We go to

any number of false alarms at

buildings with smoke detectors.

Some are from accidental

causes, where smoke from

sanding, set the alarms off.

Last Thursday’s call to the

Riccarton Clinic was a bit different.

A plaster cast was being

cut off a patient.

Seems the plaster dust was

enough to activate the alarm.

Result was a full evacuation.

Finally, the retrieval of a seal

pup from Fitzgerald Ave and its

return to the Avon was accomplished

by the city’s red watch

fire crew on Wednesday.

Leaky building repairs for Burnside High

•From page 1

Ministry of Education head

of the education infrastructure

service Kim Shannon said the

work would start in the next few

weeks.

Once the design work was

done on the buildings, the cost

of fixing the leaking issues could

be assessed, she said.

“A designer will be appointed

in the next few weeks to

determine specifically what

is required to fix the weathertightness

issues,” she said.

She said the leaks were the

result of “historic design and

construction work”, but who

was liable was complicated.

“Proving liability for weathertightness

issues is not straight

forward in Christchurch due to

the wide ranging impacts of the

earthquakes,” she said.

Readers write about

whether free entry is

enough to get them cycling

into the Jellie Park Sport

and Recreation Centre

Connie Kruse Christensen

– Free entry would make me cycle

to the swimming pools. But it

needs more promoting to schools,

workplaces and the greater community

for people to know it

exists.

Nic Davies – Warm weather.

Sadly, I’m not much of a biker,

but have to say, love these new

cycleways that are being made.

If I was more into biking, I’d feel

damn safer using them with all

the crazy car drivers about.

Lynn Mortlock – The first

trial was in the middle of summer

and 117 visits were recorded,

which according to the organiser

was a success. Welcome to

Christchurch, which caters for the

minority and the majority suffer.

Warren Kemp – For a start,

you need a push-bike. Oh, and

warmer weather. Then I will need

motivation (extremely low when

it comes to push-bikes) and better

roads. What about self-propelled

push-bikes? And we could put a

cage around them for safety.

Wait a minute that sounds like

a car. Yes – a car would work for

me.

Jason Gemmill – Give it up!

Stop trying to force people out of

cars and on to bikes. If we wanted

to, we would. But clearly the vast

majority of us are not interested

in cycling.

Anna Barclay – Nothing.

Don’t waste the money, there’s

still people using chemical toilets

in New Brighton.

Anna Henderson – Probably

will anyway but cycle lanes

the whole way would help. Feels

much safer.

Dennis Rogers – It makes

sense to bike as you’re saving at

least $1000-plus a year leaving

your car at home. It’s extra money

in your pocket.

Danielle Aitken – Advertise

it more. I saw nothing about the

last trial at all.

Jillian Nuth – I’d love to but

the traffic is terrifying.

St Andrew’s win junior tournament

• By Andrew King

RAIN, HAIL and sleet could

not stop the St Andrew’s

College year 9 netball team

from winning their grade in

the South Island secondary

schools junior netball

tournament on Wednesday.

St Andrew’s beat Dunedin’s

St Hilda’s Collegiate 33-12 in

the final.

However, due to the appalling

weather conditions, the

final was transferred from the

to the St Margaret’s College

gym.

Unfortunately, they were

unable to play most of the

other final games due to snow

falling.

St Andrew’s breezed past

Kaiapoi High in the opening

round 54-12 before beating

St Kevin’s College 39-13 and

Marlborough Girls’ High

31-18.

They backed those results up

by beating Rolleston College

39-13, St Margaret’s 40-19 and

Mt Aspiring College 34-14.

The semi-final against Villa

Maria College was tighter

with St Andrew’s getting past

them 30-24.

Tournament director Penny

Martin said it was a great

event which was, unfortunately,

let down by the weather.

“After two full days of playing

their little hearts out, it

was a shame to cancel those

last games,” she said.

New treatment for fungal nails

Feet First, the long-established

podiatry clinic in Upper Riccarton, now

has a much more efficient and effective

means of dealing with the problem of

fungal nails, thanks to a new machine

they recently obtained from Britain,

where it was designed and trialled.

Clearanail is a procedure where the

Podiatrists use a machine to make

tiny holes in the nail without affecting

the nail bed – a completely pain-free

procedure that then allows the topical

application of antifungal

solution to directly reach the

problem area.

Fungal nails may cause

the toenail to thicken, which

consequently can make shoes

feel uncomfortable. Anyone

who believes they have a fungal

infection of the nails is invited

to make an appointment for a

consultation with Feet First so one of the

qualified Podiatrists can assess if that is

the case, and if so, will recommend the

Clearanail procedure. This involves the

initial treatment, and three follow-up

appointments at monthly intervals to

check progress.

“Fungal nail infections won’t disappear

immediately,” clinic director Charlotte

Russell says, “so people need to commit

to the process, which can take up to four

months as the nail grows.”

effective treatment, Feet First has

another unique feature – the Shoe

Room. Here, clients can browse

through a wide selection of ‘fashionable,

functional footwear’ for men and

women that not only provides support

and comfort, but also looks modern and

attractive.

The four registered and experienced

Feet First Podiatrists offer the full range

of podiatry services for all ages and all

conditions, with customised treatment

provided for every client. They also

offer a range of quality foot treatment

products, including the German brand

Gehwol.

The clinic at 37 Main South Road is

open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to

5pm, with late nights on Monday and

Thursday to 7pm by appointment. The

Shoe Room is open Monday to Friday

9am-4pm. There is on-site parking

available.

Feet First also runs several satellite

clinics. These are at the Marshland

Family Health Centre, Marshland

Road on Mondays, the Redcliffs

Clinic, Augusta Street, on Wednesday

afternoon and Friday morning, the

Waltham Medical Centre, Waltham

Road on Wednesday afternoon, and at

Darfield Pharmacy on Friday.

NEW TECHNOLOGY TO TREAT FUNGAL NAILS

The Clearanail machine and

related products.

Clinic director Charlotte Russell displays

one of the modern boot styles available

in the Shoe Room.

She says now is an ideal time to start

fungal nail treatment with Clearanail,

so nails will be looking healthy again

when the warm, sandal-wearing

weather arrives. Feet First has an

introductory offer on Clearanail until

the end of July.

Call them on 348-7910 for details.

EAGER: More than 50 people and their bicycles braved the cold to celebrate the

opening of the Papanui Parallel. ​

Community celebrates cycleway

• By Julia Evans

THE ST Albans

community thinks

the cycleway in its

neighbourhood is

something to celebrate.

So more than 50 residents

took their children,

dogs and bicycles along

to the Papanui Parallel to

mark its opening.

Organiser Lynne O’Keefe

said they’d tried to arrange

the event at the same time

as the official opening by

Mayor Lianne Dalziel and

Minister of Transport

Simon Bridges.

But she said it was a

“moving target” due to the

minister’s busy schedule so

they locked in their own

date.

Residents met at the Rutland

Reserve for a barbecue

lunch provided by Fulton

Hogan before exploring the

new cycleway.

Mrs O’Keefe said it was

great to see people out using

the new route.

“It just encouraged

people out onto it and it felt

like we moved away from

the controversy surrounding

the cycleways,” she said.

The event was supported

by local businesses, who

Mrs O’Keefe said were the

most negatively impacted

by the cycleways.

“It was great to see them

getting behind it.”

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

CHICKEN BREAST WITH

MUSHROOM STUFFING

AND MARSALA GLAZE

Ingredients

1 Garlic clove

1 Shallot, or small onion, diced

15g Butter

50g White Button mushrooms

2 slices Bread, stale and diced

1 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped

1 Lemon, zest

2 Chicken breasts

1 Tbsp Oil

3 Tbsp Marsala, or sherry

2 Tbsp Cream

Directions

Stuffing

In a small frying pan, fry the

garlic and shallot in the butter

until translucent. Add the mushrooms

and fry for 2-3min until

cooked. Add the breadcrumbs,

cooking until the butter has

been absorbed.

Take off the heat, add the parsley

and lemon zest and season

with salt and freshly ground

black pepper.

To cook the chicken

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Stuff the chicken breast by lifting

the tenderloin up (if there is no

tenderloin, ignore this). Press

half of the stuffing on to the

breast meat. Cover the stuffing

with the tenderloin. Wrap the

breast with kitchen string to secure

the stuffing in place and tie.

Repeat with second breast.

Heat a frying pan and add oil.

Add the breasts skin side down

and season with salt. When

browned on one side, turn and

season again. After 3min, place

the pan in the hot oven for a further

10-12min or until cooked.

Remove from the oven and

cover with foil to rest for 5min.

To serve, place the chicken on a

chopping board and remove the

string.

Slice in half and place on a

warmed plate. Cover with foil

while you make the sauce.

Return the pan of chicken

juices to the hob. Add the

marsala or sherry and let it

reduce for 2-3min (this is called

de-glazing). Add the cream and

taste for seasoning. Pour the

sauce over the chicken. You may

need to pour over through a

sieve to remove any burnt pan

leftovers. Season with freshly

ground black pepper. Serve with

potatoes and greens.

Neighbour

Hello

Christchurch is entering a new and

exciting phase and the recent inauguration of

ChristchurchNZ bringing together four key

sectors; Tourism, International Education,

Business Innovation and the new Convention

Bureau, is a demonstration of the city’s

commitment to make Christchurch a great

destination to visit and to study and work

in! International students are on the rise, and

Alpha Homestays Limited (AHSL) is building

on the proud history of Student Links to

facilitate good matching of international

students with local New Zealand families

as they pursue their various study options.

AHSL provides services to Alpha Educational

Institute (AEI), in Sheffield Crescent (where

Margaret Bray and Jude Cochrane look after

our office); the National Trade Academy

(NTA), a land-based training centre near

Orana Park; the International Aviation

Academy of New Zealand (IAANZ), in

Pound Road, which trains pilots, and the Air

New Zealand Aviation Institute (AirNZAI),

in Orchard Road, who train the Aircraft

Engineers! So, we do have our work cutout

these days and are definitely looking

to broaden our Homestay base – hence the

accompanying advertisement!

Currently the age-range that AHSL caters

for is from 12-years old to mature adults.

The younger students (mostly teenagers) are

generally in AEI’s High School Preparation

Programme and the adult students are

preparing for further tertiary study or

are already enrolled in one of the tertiary

institutions mentioned.

The recent nationality mix has included

Chinese and Taiwanese, Japanese, South

Korean, Filipino, Vietnamese, Indonesian,

Thai, Indian, and several of our South

American countries!

AHSL is very attentive to the need to

support both the homestay families and

the international students, and so pastoral

care oversight is a high priority. We are very

mindful of the significant ‘Adjustment Curve’

According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis”

from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and

honey (CV & H) can be an important part of

a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters

who regularly consumed cider vinegar and

honey had excellent health with many putting

in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar

and honey on arthritis can be remarkable

with many patients reporting almost total

relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar

and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid

and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted

calcium deposits and helped the body control

calcium use.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

honey at the onset of complaints such

as the common cold, sinusitis,

asthmatic attacks, hay fever,

and childhood diseases

such as chicken pox

and measles, was

accompanied by

an improvement

in the condition

with symptoms

either disappearing,

or the conditions were

extremely mild and soon

over.

Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness

of the apple in a form that is readily accepted

by the body. Scientists have found over 90

different substances in ACV, among them 20

important trace elements, minerals, essential

enzymes, a number of different acids including

malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the

form of potash and pectin. A scientific study

at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven

ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can

destroy free radicals, which are a major factor

in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down

cholesterol formations in the blood vessels.

ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also

promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients

and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize

any toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all cider vinegar

is made in the traditional way and results are

likely to prove disappointing with these other

vinegars.

deficient?

Minerals are the building blocks of

good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others

like magnesium are needed in much

larger amounts and on a regular basis to

prevent deficiency and maintain optimum

health. A large number of us do not

obtain sufficient magnesium from our

diet and may notice some of the common

signs of deficiency. Some of the more

common symptoms that may be caused by

insufficient magnesium are: leg and muscle

cramps, twitches, muscle pain, muscle

fatigue and weakness, tremors of hands,

blurred vision, restlessness, poor sleep,

raised and/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration

and many more.

Although many young people now show

signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age due to our

digestive system being less efficient. Taking

a magnesium supplement of sufficient

strength may be a sensible option to top

Numerous HealtH Problems may be a magNesium DeficieNcy!

Some of the common symptoms can be:

Be health smart

this winter

HaNDS arE the main pathways of germ

transmission. Hand hygiene is therefore

the most important measure to avoid the

transmission of harmful germs.

Wash your hands, before & after food

preparation and eating, if you borrow

someone elses equipment and of course

after blowing your nose. For convenience

it is a good idea to have hand sanitiser on

hand to use in between washing.

Sneezing & coughing into the crook

of your arm or tissues rather than your

hand, reduces the spread of airborne

bugs. remove tissues to the rubbish

immediately.

Keep hydrated, two thirds of your body

is made of water, so keeping hydrated

is one of the most important things you

can do for your health. Dehydration

symptoms range from headaches to

nausea to fatigue, but the effects of

dehydration on your immune system are

not always as obvious. Staying hydrated

keeps the mucus membranes moist, which

keeps the immune system functioning

optimally. Unfortunately, lattes and wine

don’t count, but upping your intake of

water is incredibly beneficial. aim to

drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

You’ll notice the difference!

Eat in season, poor nutrition impairs

the immune response. Fresh vegetables,

fruits, nuts, grains and legumes or pulses

are full of immune-boosting properties

and antioxidants. Nature provides fresh

seasonal foods to compensate for what

our bodies are lacking at that time of

year. Kiwifruit & citrus fruits that are in

season throughout winter are packed with

Vitamin C.

Stress less, although short periods of

stress can actually be good for us longterm

chronic stress lowers our immunity,

making us more susceptible to colds and

flu. We all have our own ways of coping

and reducing stress so whether it’s taking

a bath, going to the gym, getting outdoors

in the garden or having fun with the kids,

do something to unwind. Not only are

you doing your adrenal glands a favour,

you’re also reducing your chances of being

struck down by the latest virus.

Get a good night’s sleep, sleep is

essential for your body to rest, repair and

rejuvenate. (Don’t you find you always

tend to look your best after a good night’s

sleep?) The human growth hormone

that’s released during sleep helps repair

your body at a cellular level, but it’s

also beneficial for the immune system.

Interrupted sleep (or just not enough of

it) significantly reduces the effectiveness

of your immune system, particularly the

natural killer cells, which is your body’s

first line of defence against germs.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Christchurch

School of Music

INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS: The National Brass Band of New Zealand, which

includes 13 Christchurch members, were runners-up in a section of the World

Music Contest. ​

Woolston Brass members play

big role in international success

CHRISTCHURCH musicians feature

prominently in the National Brass Band

of New Zealand, which was named

runner-up in the brass band section of

the World Music Contest.

A third of the band members are from

Christchurch, with all but one playing

for Woolston Brass.

The contest is held every four years in

Kerkrade, the Netherlands.

The New Zealand band’s programme

opened with Whakarangatiratanga,

commissioned from New Zealand composer

Gareth Farr.

The programme also featured a new

major work written for the band by

renowned English composer Peter

Graham. The 39 th Parallel is based on the

landscape and mythology of the Wanganui

region in memory of brass band

icon Kevin Jarrett.

This year more than 20,000 musicians,

making up 260 bands from 32 countries

and five continents, participated.

The band performed concerts in Stein,

the Netherlands, and Aachen, Germany,

before returning to New Zealand last week.

The 13 Christchurch musicians

are Kevin McMorran, New Brighton,

Anthony Smith, Sydenham, Kevin

Hickman, Sydenham, and his brother

Graham, Huntsbury, Andrew

Yorkstone, Burnham, Joe Thomas

and Sam Pinder, Hoon Hay, Phillip

Johnston, Spreydon, Nigel Seaton

and his son Jordan (the youngest

member of the national band at 20

years of age), John Mason, Burnham,

Cameron Lee, Ilam and Vaea

Peterson, Halswell.

The Christchurch School of Music is

a family-oriented community aimed at

providing quality music education in and

around Christchurch.

CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a

strong focus on community. On a Saturday

morning the whole family can find something

to suit. Preschool and junior school children

can start their musical journey by joining

in our experiential “Take Off with Music”

while older children and adults may opt for

group or individual lessons on a specific

instrument (including voice). Those who

already play are welcome to join in one of

the great ensembles which all take part in

regular concerts including Saturday soirees

and the popular annual Showcase Concert.

Solo Recitals where individuals can perform

are held regularly.

CSM also provides a comprehensive music

education to participating primary schools

via its Outreach programmes offering

tuition in band, strings, recorder, ukulele

and classroom music in a wide range of

Christchurch schools.

Age is no limit - our Late Starters

programme provides the opportunity for

adults approaching retirement with more

time on their hands to learn an instrument

and join an ensemble with other like-minded

adults.

If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also offers

a range of weekday opportunities for learning

and playing music and, if affordability is an

issue, CSM may be able to offer a discount

through funding provided by the Rata

Foundation.

Term 3 starts on Saturday 29 July and we

can take new enrolments in most classes and

ensembles.

Please contact us via our website www.

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.

New and exciting at Risingholme

Community Centre is Zentangle.

What is this you might say - well if

you can’t sit still enough for yoga, or

your mind wanders in meditation,

or you would like a creative aspect to

your mindfulness, this may work for

you. This method of drawing does not

require any previous drawing ability,

it can be a 15 minute practice you can

build into your everyday, or you can

explore some of the more creative ways

you can then use this design practise

to make your own cards, images, or

decorate products. This class will teach

you a variety of ‘tangles’ and get you started

on your Zentangle path in a supportive and

creative atmosphere, and you can build it

at a pace that suits you, within your time

constraints or desire as you move through

the term.

If you would like to know more about

these classes or others on our website

www.risingholme.org.nz please call the

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness

in your house

Now wITH the colder and wetter weather

on its way, home owners are focusing on

ways to make their homes comfortable, warm

and healthy for their families throughout

winter. RISING dAmp is an issue that affects

many of our older properties which suffer

from poor, or no, insulation. In Canterbury

especially, post-quake, many people have

relocated to homes that suffer from rising

damp which can be associated with health

problems. Independent tests have shown

that up to 40 litres of water can rise from the

ground and enter a house every day, leading

to mildew, mould, condensation and musty

smells. moulds can produce various allergic

reactions and the frail, elderly and very young

are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home. Specially adapted for our

New Zealand conditions and applications

it provides a layer of protection against

rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that

the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also

provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or

0508 362626 for more information.

The facts about

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

Balanced

Pressure

Ventilation

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.
