Residents have say on traffic woes

• By Julia Evans

FENDALTON residents will

now get a say in addressing road

safety issues in thie area.

It comes three weeks after

Nor’West News revealed a memo

from city council chief executive

Karleen Edwards, which said the

issues on Glandovy, Straven and

Idris Rds could be “sufficiently

addressed” by having

a work shop with the

community board, not

the public.

But the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board has

vetoed the instruction.

But resident James

Wilding holds reservations

that the city

David

Cartwright

council could

still exclude the

public.

“The board

has recognised

the validity of

the community’s

concerns. We now

hope that the city

council does so

also and swiftly

Karleen

Edwards

addresses them,” he said.

Dr Edwards said she

is satisfied the board has

made its decision on the

matter with the community’s

interests in mind.

“The board agreed

that, an around the table,

informal meeting with all

parties would be the best

approach, rather than a

more formal working group.”

Chairman David Cartwright

told Nor’West News the board

wants to create a “three-legged

stool” made up of the board, city

council and residents. “If you

only have two of those legs, the

stool falls over,” he said. A date

for that meeting has not yet been

set but Mr Cartwright said it

would be within a fortnight.

TOP MARKS to the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board for getting behind residents

and their traffic problems

(see page 1).

Karleen Edwards, the city council’s

chief executive, and one very

powerful individual, decided on

the back of a staff recommendation

to stop residents getting too involved

in solving the traffic issues.

That went down like a lead

balloon with residents which

Nor’West News reported three

weeks ago.

Now the community board has

stood up to Dr Edwards and council

staff and said residents should

be a part of solving the problems.

That means the issue won’t

be thrashed out by an exclusive

elected members club and their

private workshops with few people

knowing what has been said or

discussed. Commonsense has prevailed.

Skate park sites revealed

• By Julia Evans

SITES IN the Papanui Ward

have been identified for a skate

park but it could be up to 12

years before anyone gets to use

it.

City council staff narrowed

the search for the suitable location

for a park to Bridgewater

Drainage Reserve, Craighead

Reserve and Edgar Macintosh

Park in Papanui or Owen

Mitchell Park and Redwood

Park in Redwood.

The report said Owen Mitchell

Park on Grimseys Rd is the

St Andrew’s students

play leading role

in film awards

The top two awards at the Canterbury

Secondary Schools’ Film Festival were

taken out by St Andrew’s College students.

Twenty two films were screened at Hoyts

last week, with two films from St Andrew’s

– Beginners, written, directed and edited

by Grace Dephoff, and Buddy, written,

directed and edited by Logan McAllister.

Beginners won best director as well as

the supreme award for best overall film.

Buddy won best screenplay and runnerup

in the supreme award.

most suitable.

“There is space between the

public toilet and playground

that has suitable separation

and natural surveillance from

neighbours.”

More than 20 other sites were

identified, including Papanui

High School, but were ruled out

due to proximity to neighbours

or space issues.

The investigation came after

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board responded to calls from

young people for a skate park in

the area.

“Papanui is very short of

youth recreation facilities,”

board chairwoman Ali Jones

said.

Currently, skaters have to go

to St Albans, Burnside, Bishopdale

or Belfast to find the closest

park.

Ms Jones said the board is

throwing around the idea of

expanding the concept into a

larger indoor youth facility that

would include a skate park.

She said that is something

that would be looked into

further before pitching the

proposal for the city council’s

2019-29 Long Term Plan.

An estimate of required funding

for the skate park would be

about $360,000 over three years.

In year one, $20,000 would be

required for site investigation

and selection, engagement with

the public and preliminary

design.

The second would require

$40,000 for more community

engagement, detailed design

and resource consent.

Construction of the park itself

would be about $300,000, which

includes free wi-fi. The cost

would change if a larger facility

was approved.

CREATIVE: New Zealand Broadcasting School head Tony Simons with St

Andrew’s College students Jen Wells, Grace Dephoff and Elliot Wood..

In Brief

JELLIE PARK UPGRADE

Jellie Park Recreation and Sport

Centre is set for an upgrade and

repairs starting next month. The

pools will be repaired and the

indoor hydroslide will be replaced.

Other work includes fixing cracks,

painting and repairs to flooring,

walls and ceilings, as well as upgrading

fire systems and replacing

wet area flooring with a non-slip,

hard-wearing material. It will be

done in stages over 18 months.

ACCESS TO THE GROYNES

Work on widening the road access

to The Groynes Reserve is almost

finished. Work is continuing on

the replacement and upgrading of

an existing culvert where it crosses

the causeway at the entrance to the

reserve. Widening of the road will

allow for two-way traffic, as well as

pedestrian access on both sides of

the road over the causeway.

MAIN NORTH RD PROPOSAL

Public feedback on the city

council’s plan to overhaul Main

North Rd is open until Friday.

The proposal is to prioritise public

transport down the street in a

bid to decrease congestion with

a variety of upgrades, including

a full-time bus lane. A “have

your say” can be found on the

city council’s website before the

proposal goes to the planning

stage.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF VET

MICHELE

Last month, our super vet nurse Megan wrote

about what a nurses day is like at our clinic so I

thought I’d give you a little insight into one of

my marathon 12 hour Tuesdays, that must start

with a flat white!

I typically arrive in after 9am due to organizing

our teenage lads for school in the morning and

walking Lola before our big 12 hour Tuesday.

I will then assess, liase with the hospital nurse

and devise a plan for any of my sick hospital

patients from the previous day. Sometimes I

will pass an intensive care patient of mine onto

Catherine if my day is full surgically. If there

is time before consulting I will phone clients

with patient updates or call them in the early

afternoon when I’ve finished consulting.

Typically I consult seeing patients for 3-4

hours in the morning and then again another 3

hours during the evening. By the time Tuesdays

rock around my consulting schedule is almost

full so when distressed clients phone with a very

sick pet, obviously we will see them but they

have to be squeezed into an already full block of

consulting. If on arrival they are in urgent need

of attention, either I will see them or one of our

expert nurses will triage the patient, often take

bloods, place a catheter and advise me of their

findings. Every patient that rings is seen that

day and often we see patients from other clinics

because they cant be seen that day at their own

Practice.

It is common place that during my morning

consults I have admitted sick patients for either

blood testing, intravenous fluids, xrays or

ultrasounds, dentistry, exploratory surgeries, or

just observation. I will check on these patients

progress, review any blood test results or

findings, ring their owners if necessary and work

out a treatment plan with the hospital nurse for

that day.

Once the sickies are dealt with, I turn my

attention to the surgical board in which all my

surgeries are highlighted in green pen!

This past Tuesday was a little insane...

Heres my list for that day-

1. Right Stifle surgery in a sweet 1 year old

Golden Retriever called “Bonnie” to repair

ruptured ACL ligaments. Bonnie blew her ACL

ligaments in both stifles while out exercising

with other dogs, so the left is yet to be repaired

in 2 weeks depending on how she’s coping after

this surgery.

2. A right femoral pinning

and wiring in a young

cat “Simba” to repair a

fractured femur probably

caused by a collision with

a car.

3. Full shoulder and

elbow, spinal, lumbar

and hip xrays in Murphy,

a 12 year old chocolate

Labrador with an

annoying persistent right

foreleg lameness.

4. A sick, lethargic Chinchilla called Pickles who

needed syringe feeding through the day.

5. A Caesarian in a 2 year old Pug called

“Geraldine”, who gave birth to 1 live puppy, with

2 unfortunately dying.

All in all I have absolutely no time to eat, drink

or get into any trouble!! All the above need to be

finished with and owners rung by 4pm when I

start all over again with consults.

Oh I forgot to mention that somewhere in the

day I have

a board

full of

messages

to call

clients

regarding

their pets

blood or

pathology

results,

medications requirements, booking in surgeries,

queries from other vets or just general advice

inquiries.

We also look after sick animals for the SPCA

and Cats Protection league. We will get a call

alerting us to how far away they are and what

sort of patient we are seeing, whether a medical

or surgical case. That can happen anytime in

our day so we fit these consultations around

everything else. I feel very good being able to

help these less fortunate animals and hopefully

give them a chance at recovery and a great life.

A day in MY LIFE is a hugely busy, fast paced

one where I need to make so many important

decisions in a day on the health and well being

of the patients in my care. There is no time to

second guess yourself, communication between

my staff and my clients is key and I need to

be very organized and able to prioritise all the

patients in my care needing my help. We are so

fortunate at McMaster & Heap to have such a

highly skilled, clever and practical group of vets

and nurses to be able to bounce ideas off when

a difficult case needs a plan.

Honestly I LOVE my job – actually it’s a

priviledge to be able to help animals in the way

we can and do. As you can see, every day is

extremely different, very challenging at times

with difficult medical cases or surgeries but the

buck stops with

me so to speak.

I leave after my

12 hour shift very

tired and hungry!

But with a big

smile on my face

knowing that I’ve

made a difference

in many animals

lives that day

and so have my

fabulous team.

Teen picks up award for invention

• By Julia Evans

MICHAEL HANN decided

he’d skip the Papanui High

School senior prize-giving last

Tuesday.

Flying up to Auckland to

attend the ASB Bright Sparks

awards evening was a better offer

and it was worth the trip.

Michael, 18, and his natural

disaster security device TEMS

won first place in the senior

engineering category.

Michael saw a problem he

could solve when medication

and hearing equipment was stolen

from a North New Brighton

home during the tsunami

evacuation after the Kaikoura

earthquake last November.

So he designed a security system

to be deployed in a natural

disaster when the power goes

out. The invention acts as a battery

charger for devices and a

place to keep belongings locked

inside during a disaster. It also

has an alarm to keep houses

safe when evacuated. It is triggered

by the rocking caused by

an earthquake and lights up an

exit path.

Michael’s now working on

connecting TEMS to an app

which would send a text if

someone breaks in.

Although he’d checked out

security device which won a Bright Sparks engineering

award.

the competition, Michael wasn’t

expecting them to read out

his name. “It was really cool

. . . I had a working protoype,

so I was hoping that would be

enough,” he said. He attended

the evening with his father, a bit

of an inventor himself.

“We didn’t get to go out and

celebrate. We had to fly back to

Christchurch the same night,”

Michael said.

The top prize came with a

new mobile phone and a cheque

for $400.

Even though he was absent at

his school prize-giving, Michael

was awarded $1000 by Papanui

High as well.

He said it was a good night all

round, one he’d never forget.

The success doesn’t stop there

– Burnside High School year 11

student Felix Backhouse came

second in the Bright Sparks

engineering category for his

invention Birds iView.

The device is a drone which

monitors bird populations with

hyper spectral imaging.

Burnside year 13 student Jack

Breurkes also won the software

category with his Mobile Physics

Game, a tool to help NCEA

level two students study for

physics exams.

Angus said the company is

Merivale’s famous Traiteur

butchery turns 25-years-old

• By Julia Evans

SOMETIMES Maarten and

Anthea Loeffen work 18-hour

days but they say it has all been

worth it.

Tomorrow marks 25 years

since the pair first opened the

iconic European butchery,

Traiteur, on the corner of

Aikmans and Papanui Rds.

Mr Loeffen said over that time,

the business has become part of

the family.

“Our three daughters all work

in the shop part time . . . staff

and their families, too, we all

look after each other,” he said.

There are several celebrations

on the cards. Long-serving

suppliers will be personally

thanked, and customers will get

a day of coffee and muffins.

The butchery’s staff and the

Loeffen family are all planning

a dinner out, even though Mr

Loeffen said they hadn’t decided

where yet.

“It’s Show Week so everywhere

is busy,” he said.

According to Mr Loeffen, the

secret to Traiteur’s success is:

“We always say yes.”

Every customer has their

favourites: A slice of cake, fresh

salad, piece of bacon and egg

pie, gourmet sausage or a rack of

lamb.

But Mr Loeffen said his

personal favourite is pork

schnitzel – something close

to his heart being from the

Netherlands.

Over the last 25 years, people

have become “more busy”, he

said. So in turn, the butchery

is selling more and more preprepared

meals.

Although he wasn’t sure

whether people really knew what

busy was.

“When I go to work at 2am,

the busy people are still asleep

and by the time I get home at

8pm, the busy people are already

watching television with their

feet up,” he said.

MEDBURY SCHOOL has a new

headmaster joining the team

next year.

Ian Macpherson, who is

currently head of middle school

at Brisbane Boys’ College,

will make the move across the

Tasman.

Prior to that, he held the

positions of deputy headmaster –

operations and head of

middle school at Anglican

Brisbane.

He and his wife, Elizabeth, will

both move to Christchurch in

Extra night announced for

Rangi, Christ’s sell-out show

WHEN DISNEY’S High School

Musical hit television screens

11 years ago, millions of people

tuned in.

While not as many will see the

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and

Christ’s College version, all six

shows sold out in one day.

Director Hannah Clarkson

confirmed an extra show has

been added to the season.

Rangi Ruru director of theatre

arts Peter Rutherford said he’s

thrilled with the speedy sell-out.

“High School Musical remains

one of the world’s most popular

television films ever and I am

sure that has played a significant

part in tickets selling out in a

day,” he said.

Musical director Henare Kaa

said everyone has been humming

the music since rehearsals began.

“The songs are really catchy,

I can’t get them out of my head.

The cast and crew are having a

ball in rehearsals and we can’t

wait until opening night.”

With a plot described by the

author and numerous critics as

a modern adaptation of Romeo

and Juliet, High School Musical

is a story about two high school

juniors from rival groups – Troy

Bolton, captain of the basketball

team, and Gabriella Montez, a

shy transfer student who excels

in mathematics and science.

A additional matinee

performance is being planned

and will take place before

November 22.

•Tickets will be available at

www.rangiruru.school.nz or

at the school office

THE COUNTRY’S top speller

headed back to her former

classroom to let Selwyn House

pupils in on her secret to success.

St Margaret’s College student

Lucy Jessup won the New

Zealand Spelling Bee in October.

But her love for words started

long before then.

“I’ve always loved reading

and writing from a young age.

By the time I was about fouryears-old

my granddad and I

would read child encyclopaedias

together, and my grandma has

always given me books and

recommendations,” she said.

The classroom at Selwyn was

really where Lucy began to hone

SCHOOLS

NZ’s top speller back

where it all started

the craft. She puts her success

down to reading.

“The best way to improve your

spelling is to read a wide range

of books that you enjoy. If you

enjoy what you are reading and

are interested by it, it is easier to

become interested in the words

themselves.”

Selwyn House team leader for

years 1 to 3, Gill Patterson-Kerr,

said it was fabulous that the year

3 pupils could welcome and

spend time with Lucy.

“All the girls reflected upon

their spelling programme

and could imagine that the

result of their efforts could see

them achieve at this level,” Ms

Patterson-Kerr said.

Burnside-based preschool and nursery,

The Enchanted Garden, was handed over

to new owner-operator Debbie Taylor in

October. She has been in early childhood

management for over seven years and has

three children of her own. Along with the

familiar faces of long-time staff, Debbie’s

vision is to continue the high quality care

and reputation that The Enchanted Garden

has maintained since 1995.

The centre offers children a home away

holistic, individualised care. They engage

higher teacher-to-child ratios to allow

better care and attention. The centre

is staffed with a team of professional

educators and nurturers who are highly

trained and passionate about creating

happy experiences.

The setting is warm and home-like in

nature while the playground and indoor

environment have been designed to allow

children to safely explore and learn with

confidence. This is supported by a strong

curriculum designed for active and exciting

play.

With 10 spaces in their nursery, and

23 spaces in their preschool, the centre

TRANSPORT: Residents struggling

to walk home from the bus stop

outside Northlands Shopping

Centre are unlikely to get a another

Wheels

come off

battle for

extra

Papanui

bus stop

• By Julia Evans

A BID to get an additional bus stop in

Papanui has hit a road block.

City councillor Mike Davidson asked

staff to investigate the possibility of

another stop on Main North Rd after

fielding calls from elderly residents living

around Northlands Shopping Centre.

The residents told Cr

Davidson they struggle to

walk home from the super

stop outside the mall and

the next bus stop on Main

North Rd is too far.

Cr Davidson suggested

a new stop be put between

the super stop and Vagues

Rd.

He said there is more

Mike

Davidson

than 600m between the current northbound

stops but city council regulation

is 500m.

A new bus stop would replace one

which was removed from outside

Countdown during construction of the

Papanui Parallel cycleway.

However, city council staff recommended

the idea not go ahead.

A staff report said a bus stop between

Grassmere St and Sawyers Arms Rd

would result in most of the on-street

parking being removed, which would be

of concern to shops on the corner.

The report said it would also be unsafe

due to the proximity of the cycleway and

add significant delays to bus times.

“This would be at odds with the primary

purpose of the Main North bus priority

project, which is to improve public

transport reliability along this section of

the network,” the report said.

A stop between Sawyers Arms and

Vagues Rds “would not reduce the current

walk distance” as it could only be

placed outside 107 Main North Rd, the

report said.

Another reason given was that a second

bus stop on the opposite side of the

road would need to be installed.

“As a general note it is not recommended

to install a single bus stop. Bus

stops are installed in pairs,” it said.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

HOW TO BARBECUE

PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least an 1.5

inches thick

Olive oil

Salt

Fresh ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat your grill to high heat.

If you have a sear burner and a

steak that is more than an inch

thick, get one side of the grill

going at about medium-high in

case you need to cook it through

a little more after the sear.

Remove the ribeye steaks from

their packaging and rub them

down with some olive oil and

then coat a generous amount

of salt and freshly ground black

pepper. The olive oil provides

just enough fat to help the salt

and pepper create a great, caramelised

crust.

Clean and lubricate your grill

grates with some cooking oil on

a rolled up piece of paper towel

(using tongs, of course).

Place the ribeye steaks on the

hottest part of the grill and then

stand ready with the tongs.

At this point, you are on flareup

watch. The fat dripping off of

the steaks could create a flare-up.

If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t

go away in a few seconds, simply

use your tongs to slide the steaks

away from the open flame until

the flame dies down and then

move them back over the heat.

Continue to grill with the lid

open for about 4-6min.

Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest

part of the grill.

Grill the ribeye steaks for an

additional 4-6min on the other

side, lid open, for a medium-rare

delicious steak.

Remove the steaks from the

grill and allow to rest for 5min

before serving. The resting

period is important so that the

juices don’t run out when you cut

into the ribeye, so be patient.

AVOCADO AND

CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE

SALAD

Ingredients

2 Tbsp Brown sugar

½ Pineapple, peeled

2 Tbsp Butter

3 Avocados, firm but ripe

½ Red onion

100g Blue cheese, creamy

½ Red chilli

2 cups Salad leaves, washed

Dressing

1 Orange, zest and juice

1 Chilli, finely chopped

1 tsp Ground cumin

4 Tbsp Avocado oil

1 to taste Salt & freshly ground

pepper

Directions

Prepare all the ingredients.

Core the pineapple, then cut

the flesh into 3cm cubes and

sprinkle with the brown sugar.

Put a frying pan on to heat, then

add the butter. When the butter

is starting to sizzle, add the pineapple

pieces and fry over a gentle

heat until they are caramelised

on all sides.

Cool. Cut the avocados into

2-3cm cubes. Break the cheese

into small pieces and slice the

onion paper-thin. Slice the chilli

into thin pieces. Make the dressing

by shaking all the ingredients

together in a jar.

To serve, line a flat serving

plate with the fresh salad leaves.

Toss the avocado, pineapple,

cheese, chilli and red onion

together on top of the leaves.

Drizzle over the dressing and

serve at once.

Selwyn House and Medbury

team saddled up for second

SPORTS

• By Andrew King

A COMBINED Selwyn House

and Medbury schools team

finished second at the inaugural

primary show jumping event in

the senior section.

The event was held at the

National Equestrian Centre,

McLeans Island.

Meg Glassey, Eva Johnston

and Sophie Thomas, of Selwyn

House, and Harry Burt and

Robbie Cochrane, of Medbury,

rode in two different categories,

which were split up by height.

The team’s mascot – a pug

named Danger Mouse – was also

at the event to support them.

Eva, riding Double Take,

and Harry, riding Kennebrook

Whispering Sand, both competed

in the 65cm section.

Sophie, on Toffee De Lux;

Meg, on Willowmead Playboy;

and Robbie, on Inspector

Gadget, competed in the 80cm

section.

Each rider competed in four

rounds of show jumping, with

the course slightly altering each

time.

SUPPORT: Selwyn House pupil Eva Johnston holds onto the

team mascot Danger Mouse.

The judges take the four best

scores, two from 65cm and two

from 80cm, from each round

and the team with the lowest

penalties is crowned the winner

A team from Villa Maria won

the event.

Team manager Belinda

Thomas said it was great to see

an event like this start up for

young riders.

“It gives the kids, who are

very committed to this sport,

an opportunity to ride for their

schools,” she said.

“The Selwyn House-Medbury

team did extremely well

finishing second, with loads of

clear rounds very close to the

optimum time. Technically,

they rode extremely well. The

top three teams were only three

marks apart. So the competition

was tough.”

Hockey star scores St Margaret’s awards

• By Andrew King

ST MARGARET’S student

Emily Wium cleaned up at the

school’s sports awards taking

home sportswoman of the

year and outstanding sporting

achievement.

The event was hosted by

former Silver Ferns captain Julie

Seymour and former Black Stick,

Gemma McCaw, was a guest

speaker.

Emily, 18, has had a standout

year, winning Canterbury

Hockey’s outstanding young

female player of the year award

last month for her sensational

efforts on the turf.

During 2017, she was a part

of the New Zealand junior

hockey world cup team, the New

Zealand under-18 development

camp, the Canterbury Cats,

Canterbury under-18 regional

women’s side, and the St

Margaret’s College first XI which

came third in the Federation

Cup.

School director of sport

Helen Belcher said the holistic

approach the school takes to

sports allows girls like Emily to

excel.

“Emily has been in our first

XI since year 9 and she’s worked

incredibly hard the whole of her

time here at St Margaret’s, always

very focused on her hockey,” she

said.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

NOR’WEST NEWS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in

Sydenham sees clients with a

range of symptoms but many

of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back

muscle could also be the cause, as shown in

the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old

client with severe arthritis who walked with

a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair,

I cannot put any weight through my right

leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”.

“Within 4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,” says

Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors

that made her muscles spasm but the other

was that older people move less and the

flexed position the hip is in when we sit is

particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy

with the fact that although the client was 89

and could have been “given up on” or told to

live with the pain, she made a difference to

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip,

strengthen the important core muscles and

increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches

the hip in all directions whilst the client is

able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for

older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If

severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but

that is often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. In

very few treatments the client will know if

it is going to work for them or not, without

financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

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.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Experience comfort! Experience

technology!!!

Dr Keith Chiang and his team at

Fendalton Dental Surgery are excited to

offer the very latest in dental imaging

technology. They have taken delivery of

several sophisticated dental equipment

over the recent months. All designed

to enhance patient diagnosis, improve

their comfort and safety during dental

procedures by upgrading to the latest

available. Keith believes in constantly

updating himself with recent advances

by attending several courses in NZ

and overseas. “Each course teaches me

something new and makes me revisit

Dentistry with a renewed passion”.

Keith with

the CBCT

The newest arrival is the Cone Beam

Computed Tomograph (CBCT), which

provides a 3D image of the patient’s

jaws and teeth through the latest digital

imaging technology. As Keith explains,

the current digital X-rays shows only

a 2D image. The image is crisper but

it sometimes leaves a few questions

unanswered. Now with the complete 3D

technology, he is able to have a much

better understanding of problems in

the patient’s mouth. “It’s a huge game

changer and takes diagnostic imaging

to a totally different level. It’s like having

Superman’s extra pair of eyes to help with

the diagnosis,” he says. “And it saves time

as patients do not have to be referred

elsewhere for the scans as we have the

CBCT machine in our practice and the

scan costs cheaper comparatively too”.

The Surgery has also acquired a stateof-the-art

patient sedation monitoring

system, Capnograph, which is used for

patients under IV sedation. Surgical or

Dental treatment under IV sedation is an

area of special interest for Keith, who is

a dental surgeon, and he has carried out

more than 1800 IV procedures since 2008.

“Patient safety is our utmost priority when

they are under sedation. Our Capnograph

monitors their vital signs namely the

respiratory gaseous exchange of oxygen

and carbon dioxide levels, heart rate and

Non-invasive intermittent blood pressure

throughout the procedure. This not only

benefits the patient, but also gives the

dentist a sense of reassurance.”

Associate dentist, Dr Zohnia McNeill

has a keen focus in cosmetic and

restorative dentistry, restoring the smile

for people of all ages and from all walks

of life. She shares the same passion for

dentistry and is happy to put a smile

back on the patients face. Oral Health

Therapist, Amy Lee is dedicated to

looking after the Oral hygiene of the

patients. Her role involves treating gum

diseases, educate people about care of

The Fendalton Dental team

their teeth and gums to help prevent oral

diseases and maintain good oral health as

well as overall general health.

The Fendalton Dental Surgery

provides General dental services with

a focus on Surgical and Restorative

Dentistry. The team warmly welcomes

you to enjoy the friendly environment

and the experience the new technology

they provide. The Surgery is located

on the high-profile corner of Idris and

Glandovey roads. For an appointment
