New Zealand’s top speller for spelling

pusillanimous. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Difficult words no problem for Lucy

IT MEANS lacking in courage

and resolution, but Lucy Jessep

certainly wasn’t as she correctly

spelled pusillanimous.

The St Margaret’s College year

10 student is New Zealand’s 2017

Spelling Bee champion.

She triumphed over hundreds

of students from more than 100

schools to win the title.

Runner-up was year 9 student

George Turner, of Marlborough

Boys’ College.

In a tightly-fought competition,

the pair battled it out for

first place over four rounds after

earlier defeating 19 other spellers

at Te Papa in Wellington. Lucy

took the title with pusillanimous.

The Burnside teen was awarded

a trophy and $5000 towards

her studies.

An enthusiastic debater who

loves learning languages, Lucy

said she was just focused on “not

getting out in the first round,”

and because of that didn’t consider

winning.

Her win was still sinking in,

she said.

Residents

fired up

over plan

to restrict

access

to Papanui

street

• By Julia Evans

PAPANUI residents are angry

access to their street could be

restricted by a plan to prioritise

buses on Main North Rd.

They say the city council’s

proposal to put restraints on

right turns into Grassmere St as

part of the upgrade will restrict

access.

However, city council manager

transport, planning and delivery

Lynette Ellis said residents had

only expressed concern about left

turns into and out of Grassmere

St. Left hand turns would not be

restricted, she said.

Ms Ellis has the backing of

Papanui city councillor Mike

Davidson, who said the proposal

was “pretty close” to what the

residents want.

The plan includes new full-time

bus lanes on Main North Rd –

with two options for an upgrade

at the Grassmere St intersection.

The first is a pedestrian island,

the other a new set of traffic lights.

IF I had my time again, I’d get into

the film industry.

Probably not as an actor – well

100 per cent not as an actor – but

there are a lot of opportunities

now for script writers, directors

and producers.

We showcase on page 5 today

two young people who have made

their mark with the short film,

A Perfect Child, which won the

award for best senior fiction at

the Australian Teachers of Media

Awards in Melbourne.

Nina Hogg and Simon Brown

from St Margaret’s and Christ’s

colleges wrote and produced the

film. That’s a great start to potential

careers in the film industry.

Hopefully their names have been

stored away by those who can

make things happen.

The 18min film took a year to

produce from start to finish and

involved more than 65 students,

mentors and teachers.

St Albans centre moves to Shirley

• By Julia Evans

AN ADDITIONAL $125,000

has been fast-tracked to

move a community centre

and maintain the goodwill

of the St Albans and Shirley

communities.

The money will go towards

a shortfall in shifting the

transitional St Albans

Community Centre from

Colombo St to MacFarlane

Park where it will be used by

Shirley residents. The shifting of

the centre, which was donated

by the Lions International

Club, was approved by the

city council at its meeting on

Thursday.

A city council report said it

was initially estimated $100,000

would be needed to move the

building but more detailed

planning has revealed it would

cost $225,000.

The initial $100,000 was

approved through the city

council’s Annual Plan.

City council staff told

councillors there would be time

delays and a financial impact

on the St Albans rebuild if the

funding was not granted. “It’s

a matter of urgency, it really

needs to be moved.”

A staff report said there

would be a “loss of goodwill”

Community

Centre is set

Park for further

Pauline Cotter

from the community, which has

been waiting for the rebuild in

St Albans and a new facility in

Shirley.

Innes Ward city councillor

Pauline Cotter said it

was a “great win” for the

communities. “St Albans and

Shirley have been a little bit

under the radar with how

hard they’ve been hit by the

earthquake. This is a very good

deal for council.”

City councillors questioned

the cost but were told moving

a building is more expensive

than it may sound. “It sounds

easy taking a building from one

park and putting it on another

. . . but you’re talking about

car parks, you’re talking about

making the building accessible,

plumbing, signage, power,

foundations. It is expensive,” a

staff member said.

Putting it at MacFarlane Park

means the Lions “committed

and generous” donation of the

building will not go to waste.

It also enables the facility to

continue being used after its

original placement in St Albans.

Cr Cotter confirmed Lions

intended to gift the building to

the city council next year.

For the past four years, the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board and the Shirley

Community Trust have been

seeking a solution to the lack

of a facility in the Shirley

area.

Young filmmakers show big potential

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

NINA HOGG and Simon

Brown of St Margaret’s and

Christ’s colleges could soon be

following in the footsteps of Kiwi

filmmaker Taika Waititi.

While Waititi has been

smashing box offices records

with his new movie Thor:

Ragnarok, Nina and Simon have

written and produced the short

film A Perfect Child.

The students’ film won the

award for best senior fiction at

the Australian Teachers of Media

Awards in Melbourne.

It tells the story of Ava, played

by St Margaret’s student Tigerlily

Perry, a girl who has lost her parents

in a car crash and has been

sent to an orphanage.

She meets Madam Murphy

(Eilish Moran, of The Court

Theatre) who runs the establishment

in a disciplined and firm

manner. Ava soon befriends

Lauren (Alice Taylor, of St Margaret’s),

but finds out that things

are not what they seem at the

orphanage.

When Lauren suddenly turns

on her, Ava discovers a laboratory

full of clones which the

orphanage is trying to make into

perfect specimens so they can be

adopted more easily.

UP-AND-COMING: Students Simon Brown and Nina Hogg

collected the award for best senior short film in Melbourne.

Taking home an award didn’t

come easily.

The 18min film took a year to

produce from start to finish and

involved more than 65 students,

mentors and teachers.

Simon said the main challenge

came from the editing process.

A Perfect Child went up against

550 entries in the ATOM awards

from across Australia and New

Zealand.

“The prize-giving was very

nerve-racking, especially when

Nina and I had to go up on stage

to collect the award. We didn’t

realise that we were required to

give a short speech and had to

improvise but it was taken very

well, which was a relief,” Simon

said.

Nina said many students put

their life and soul into the film.

“I hope our two schools (St

Margaret’s and Christ’s) continue

this collaboration as a way

to foster interest in the film industry

and highlight the talent of

our friends and fellow students,”

she said.

The ATOM presentation

was hosted by Australian TV

presenter Walt Collins and was

followed by a screening of the

winning productions at the SAE

Institute, Melbourne. The awards

Northern Arterial down to the law

• By Julia Evans

A BID to change the plans

for the Northern Arterial on

Cranford St will come down to

an interpretation of the law.

Last month Nor’West News

revealed Small World Preschool

and Nursery and the Cranford

Ale House fear they will have

to shut their doors if designs for

the stretch between McFaddens

Rd and the rural zone go ahead

as currently planned.

All on-street parking will be

lost when cycleways are put in

on either side of the road.

Ale house owner Andrew

Norton has enlisted the help

of Christchurch Central MP

Duncan Webb.

The former Lane Neave partner

and legal professor said in

terms of changing the plans to

include on-street parking, it will

come down to an interpretation

of the designs approved by the

Environment Court last year.

Dr Webb said “everyone is on

board with having cycleways,”

but the initial design had both

cycleways and on-street parking.

“The design has been be

fundamentally the same as was

approved [by the Environment

Court] . . . it doesn’t have to be

exactly the same,” he said.

plan, which has no on-street

parking, to be fundamentally

the same, Dr Webb said.

But businesses see it as a huge

variance from the approved

design, he said there has been a

“raft of objections.”

The MP has been in contact

with the city council which will

meet with the affected parties to

discuss the designs.

The pedestrian island would see

Main North Rd into Grassmere St.

Lights would mean no right turn

into or out of Grassmere St.

Grassmere St resident Murray

Turley said during the construction

of the Papanui Parallel cycleway in

April, the city council “promised

unrestricted access” to the group of

concerned residents. He said that

meant maintaining both turns in

and out of Grassmere St.

“We were promised unrestricted

access and now they’re completely

restricting it.”

He said Ms Ellis’ claim that

residents were only concerned about

left turns was incorrect.

Ms Ellis said the proposal

includes the restricted turns

for Grassmere St because of the

available width on Main North

Rd for the bus lane. She said it was

necessary to avoid “significant

delays” to traffic. Cr Davidson said

the proposal is not “set in stone” so

changes could be made.

The public can have their say on

the plan via the city council website

until November 17.

“The project started

two-and-a-half years ago

when the trust was working

with children from Mairehau

Primary asking them

what they liked about the

area, what they didn’t like

and what they would like to

change,” she said.

One of the main themes

was that the pupils found

add vibrancy to the area.

Mairehau a “bit grey” and

wanted “more colour and

vibrancy” in the area.

The pupils took

photos and made up a

board of ideas.

“One of the things they

suggested was a mural,” Ms

Larsen said.

But the trust quickly hit a

road block. Said Ms Larsen:

“We thought this would

be lovely but we’ve got no

money.”

That’s when Child and

Youth Friendly Cities came

on board.

Ms Larsen said the

group really liked the fact

that it was the voices and

ideas of local children being

heard.

“They want more children’s

Photos were sent through

to Mr Baker, who works

on the mural whenever the

weather is good.

Many large-scale murals

St Margaret’s mega birthday cake

• By Julia Evans

IT TOOK more than 1000

eggs to make the 750 slices of

cake dished out during the

recent founder’s day service at

St Margaret’s College.

The school celebrated its

107th birthday with the giant

cake. It was founded in 1910

by Bishop Churchill Julius,

who convinced the Diocese

of Christchurch synod of the

need to establish a school for

girls to match that already set

up for boys.

St Margaret’s was opened at

28 Armagh St with 50 pupils.

In 1913, with a roll of more

than 100, it moved into a new

building on the corner of

Cranmer Square and Chester

St West. The college moved

to its current Merivale site in

1986. •More schools, page 13

CELEBRATE: Year 5 pupil Eve Tayler takes one of the 700 slices

Rangi Ruru starts media empire

GIRLS ARE taking control

of how they’re framed in the

media by producing their own

magazine.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

students have published a new

magazine – Shelter, the Aroha

Edition.

Head of media studies Jude

Morgan said the production

highlights the ability of teens

to be ethical and responsible

consumers of media.

“Our students, for the second

year running, have learned how

to create a media product that

appeals to a target audience.

From concept to completion, it

is completely driven by students

– the content, design and layout

to print ready stage,” she said.

The editor the magazine is

year 13 student Olivia Mason.

She believes in the magazine’s

brief “to provide content that

inspires, challenges and empowers

readers”.

Any student in the school can

submit work or be involved in

the production of the magazine.

COVER: A Rangi Ruru magazine includes

work submitted by students such as the

above design by Hilary Royds.

This year, the editorial team

has applied for and received an

ISSN number, which means the

magazine can be catalogued.

“This takes us to a business/

professional level and means the

students can now take on the

business and marketing side of

the production, too,” said Ms

Morgan.

Teacher earns

award for

excellence

A ST Margaret’s College teacher

has earned a national excellence

award for her work.

Linda Chong, the college’s

head of the centre for innovation,

won an Australian Scholarships

Group national Excellence in

Teaching award.

She is one of 18 recipients from

the country, selected from almost

200 nominations.

Teaching was never a career

path that Linda consciously

planned to pursue.

But the love of learning and the

joy she gets in helping others has

always been a skill she has loved

to share.

She has co-constructed teaching

programmes and innovative

technology, which has enabled

her to integrate learning activities

that delve deeper into student

understanding and engagement.

Now in its 21st year, ASG

NEiTA gives parents, grandparents,

school boards and councils

and committees of management

the opportunity to thank and

recognise outstanding teachers.

INNOVATION: Teacher Linda

Chong has been recognised

for her hard work and

dedication to St Margaret’s

College students. ​

Chief executive officer, John

Velegrinis said these educators,

including Ms Chong recognise

that it takes a village to raise a

child.

“These teachers have an enormous

responsibility in shaping

and guiding these young people

as well as supporting the educational

aspirations families have

for their children.”

Hip-hop

crew take act

Krump, swag, iso, reggaeton, electric boogaloo and turfing – it may sound like gibberish to

Competing against dance crews from 17 countries, Aperture, made up of Nekholas

Thompson, Logan Rielly, George Jacobs-Lawson, Zak Tait, Manaia Davies, Tessa Holley,

Meg Lancaster and Justice Setefano, came fourth in the junior division.

THREE MINI traffic signs, 150

tyres, 35 cu m of bark, 11 timber

off-cuts, 15 cu m of aggregate

and one 6m pipe.

That’s what it takes to build a

motorway-themed playground.

Work on the Christchurch

Northern Corridor has been directly

affecting Papanui Primary

School. Traffic is slow, there are

often detours and drop-off and

pick-up zones are always changing.

So the Northern Corridor

team decided it was “only fair”

to do something positive for the

school, team director Edward

Husband said.

“We know that the school is

directly affected by our work,

the drop-off and pick-up traffic

had to change routes and many

of the pupils live close to the

new motorway alignment,” he

said.

Mr Husband heard the school

wanted a new playground area,

so the team started working on

the idea earlier in the year.

Papanui principal Paul Kingston

said the school couldn’t be

happier with the result.

”Our five-year-olds could

not wait for it to be finished,

they love climbing the pipe and

riding their bikes and scooters

along the paths. Having the

motorway project in their back

yards, they are really interested

in construction and transport,”

he said.

While the motorway team was

planning the playground, the

asked pupils what they wanted.

The team brought in draft plans

to show the children, measured

up the site and discussed with

pupils how it would be constructed.

“That in itself has been a great

learning experience for our

youngest students,” Mr Kingston

said.

At the end of October

the CNC team rolled up

their sleeves with teachers,

the principal, parents and

pupils to dig the paths, install

mini timber piles, place the

pipe and construct the climb

area and finally to put down

the aggregate and place the

bark.

Most of the material and tools

used for the playground were

found on the Northern Corridor

site and recycled or are currently

being used on the motorway

alignment.

1 whole butterflied chicken

Directions

Preheat grill to medium. Get

surface temperature to about 200

deg C. Clean and oil well. Clean

the chicken if you desire and pat

dry.

Cut the backbone out of the

chicken with sharp kitchen

scissors. You could use a knife,

but the scissors are much safer

and work great.

With a large knife, give the

breastbone a large nick in the

front of the chicken to help the

bird lay flat.

Rinse the inside of the bird out,

trim any loose fat and extra skin.

Pat dry again. Give the bird a

good sprinkle of salt and pepper.

You could use any seasoning you

want here.

Place skin down on the grill.

Flip after you get a nice browning

on the skin after about 12-15min.

Give the chicken a good

brushing of barbecue sauce.

Grill another 3-4min until

the sauce is browning well.

Total grilling on the second side

should take 20-25min.

Let set for 5 minutes then cut

and serve.

1 Avocado

1 Lemon

1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

1 Pepper

1⅓ cups Dried cranberries

½ cup Walnuts

pepper

Directions

To make the salsa, combine

avocado, juice of the lemon, oil,

Fire rages, homes at risk

Huge turnout for bike show

• By Sophie Cornish

THE SMASH Palace Bike Show

took New Brighton by storm on

Saturday.

“It went really well, everyone had

a ball,” said event organiser Jason

Mill.

Originally, 20 heats were planned

for the demonstration but Mr Mill

said on the day there was close to

60.

Tony Hockley, 82, son of former

bike enthusiast and founding member

of the Pioneer Motorcycle Club

Geoff Hockley, raced on the day.

The event was linked to the late

Mr Hockley, who was involved in

the first ever bike races on New

Brighton beach in the early 1900s.

Event organisers had one lap

planned for Tony, who ended up

lining up for the next six races

afterwards.

“We couldn’t get him off the

bike,” said Mr Mill.

Between 3000-4000 spectators

showed up and the seaside market

said they had one of their busiest

markets of the year, said Mr Mill.

Originally the event was planned

to be biennial, however, following

feedback from spectators, Mr Mill

thinks this may change.

“The word I kept hearing was

next year . . . if the community

wants it, we will do it.”

ENTHUSIASTS: Between 3000-4000 people turned out in New Brighton on Saturday for the

Smash Palace Bike Show.

New Dentures >

Creating a Better

Denture Experience

Relines >

Repairs >

Partial Dentures >

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

bring someone with them for support at any

appointment if they wish.

Located at 6 Brynley Street Hornby,

Better Denture is open Monday to Friday,

9am-5pm and Saturday, 10am-12pm.

Off-street parking and wheelchair access

available.

A FOLK art exhibition

is returning to St Albans

after a 10-year hiatus.

On Saturday, the sale

and exhibition of the New

Zealand Folk and Decorative

Artists’ Guild is being

held at the Forfar Courts

Community Hall.

The guild used to hold

an exhibition in the area

but stopped to have a stall

at the Great New Zealand

Craft Show in Lyttelton

about 10 years ago.

“We decided it would be

a great opportunity to have

a sale and exhibition on

our own again as we have

many very beautiful pieces

of decorative painting that

have been donated to our

guild since it was started

in 1990,” guild immediate

past president Chris

Threadwell said.

ART: Folk

paintings

will be back

on display in

St Albans on

Saturday.

Folk art returns to St Albans

She said the pieces do

not often get a chance to be

on display to the public so

this would offer a chance

to show off the art’s beauty.

“The public can see the

beautiful work that can

be achieved, with practice,

and become heirlooms of

the future. Most of these

pieces have been donated

by tutors who have come

from overseas on teaching

appointment,” she said.

SENIOR LIVING

Plenty to do at McKenzie

Lifestyle Village

The last stage is under construction at

McKenzie Lifestyle Village but there are still

good sites available. We also have a number

of affordable villas ready for immediate

occupation. Prices range from $330,000

and our monthly outgoing fees are fixed for

life.

Our beautiful Leisure Centre is very

popular with the residents who make

full use of the swimming and spa pools,

gymnasium, craft room, library and lounge

area. Outside, the Bowling Green is also

popular along with Petanque, Mini-golf and

Table Bowls. This coming summer will see

Croquet being played on our Village Green.

The residents’ monthly activities calendar

boasts the following; bowls events, concert

going (Operatunity), shopping trips, lunch

NOR’WEST NEWS

outings, yoga, housie, Qigong (Tai Chi),

happy hour, knitting, quiz nights, cards

and games, book club, Bible discussion,

craft sessions, and there are regular visits by

the hairdresser, massage therapist and the

podiatrist.

Geraldine is a great little town with a

very pleasant microclimate. There is plenty

to do in and around the town with art

galleries, theatre and cinema, interesting

shops and boutiques, two museums and a

wide range of good places to eat. For the

more adventurous there are river and forest

walks nearby, opportunities for biking and a

choice of two local golf clubs.

School blaze and Guy Fawkes

keep firefighters occupied

• By Mark Thomas –

specialist fire investigator

I’VE BEEN away from

Christchurch for a couple

of weeks.

I missed the arson attack

on Linwood North School

on October 21.

I’m mentioning it here

because school fires are

one of the most unsettling

for communities to deal

with.

Students, teachers

and parents often feel

personally violated when

their school is attacked in

this way.

In my experience and

knowledge, it is very rare

that school arsonists are

old enough to vote.

In fact, often they are

recent pupils themselves of

the school concerned.

It’s disturbing and

sad that there are young

people who can hate

their teachers, peers and

community enough to

destroy the buildings that

are the bricks and mortar

of that school community.

I hope the Linwood

North arsonists are caught.

If only to prevent a similar

reoccurrence.

Guy Fawkes will be over

by the time this column is

published.

While things have

improved from the wild

west days of multiple fires

and horrendous injuries, it

mystifies firefighters why

DISTURBING:

Linwood

North School

after an arson

attack.

full fire bans are the norm

for very good reasons for

51 weeks of the year but

are totally suspended for

one week.

All to somehow celebrate

the murderous intent of a

terrorist who was caught

red-handed 500 years

ago on the far side of the

world.

We are often called to

rescue cats up trees.

Last Wednesday at Jellie

Park, there was a tree

involved but this time a

child was stuck.

They’d been rescued

by the time our troops

arrived.

Might have just saved

them some embarrassment

at school.

Co-Q10 reduces all

causes of mortality

by 50%

Researchers were amazed with the

results of how beneficial a natural nutrient

Coenzyme- Q10 (CoQ10) is to the human

body. Co-Q10 is a natural enzyme in

the body’s cells that is essential for cell

function, energy and survival. The Heart,

Liver, Kidneys and Pancreas require large

amounts of Co-Q10 to function well.

In a recent multi country double blind

trial on the possible benefits of CoQ10 to

protect against heart failure, 420 patients

with severe heart failure were given CoQ10

or a placebo and then followed for two

years. It was found to the amazement of

the researchers the patients who received

the Co-Q10 had a 50% reduction in an

adverse cardiovascular event or death

compared to the placebo patients. Not only

this but the patients on the CoQ10 had a

50% reduction in death not only from

cardiovascular events but from all causes.

According to lead study author Professor

Mortensen this study is the first in over a

decade to show a natural nutrient can

reduce heart failure mortality and CoQ10

should be added as a standard treatment

for anyone with cardiovascular complaints.

It is known that CoQ10 levels decrease in

the heart muscle of patients with heart

failure as severity worsens. Statin drugs

are used to treat many patients with

cardiovascular problems but these drugs

also reduce CoQ10 levels further in the

body. Symptoms of low CoQ10 in the body

can be low energy and endurance, muscle

pain, poor memory and concentration and

poor heart function or heart failure.

CoQ10 levels are known to decrease

as we age and many researchers believe

keeping our levels up of this vital nutrient

may help prevent many chronic diseases

including cancer.

Co-Q10 is available as a natural

supplement to support good health.

Are you

Magnesium

deficient?

Minerals are the building blocks of good

health. Some minerals are only needed in

trace amounts where others like magnesium

are need 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

up our vital magnesium levels. Not all

magnesium supplements however are

well absorbed by everyone. Luckily a new

marine sourced magnesium has been

found that offers good levels of absorbable

magnesium as well as many trace nutrients

that are low in the diet but essential for

good health. Further information is

available in store from our natural health

advisers, and medical herbalists..
