Panthers win on

and off the field

FRIENDLY: The Penrith Panthers paid South New Brighton

School a visit last Thursday in the lead-up to their game against

the Vodafone Warriors on Saturday, which the visitors won

30-18. Nearly 500 pupils and parents from South New Brighton

and Rawhiti School were given tickets to attend the match

by organiser Justin Wallace. Panthers players Dallin Watene-

Zelezniak (pictured), Trent Merrin, and Peta Hiku all joined

in, signing T-shirts, autographs and posing with the pupils for

photos.

Call to sort maintenance issues

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Levels of routine roadside

mowing and street cleaning in

the eastern suburbs is dropping

due to the level of earthquake

related road repairs in the area.

At a recent city council

committee meeting, staff said

residents were concerned that

routine maintenance was not

being done regularly.

But city council’s head of

transport Chris Gregory said the

number of Stronger Christchurch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team

work sites has affected “day-today”

maintenance.

There are more than 150

work sites currently underway,

according to the Transport for

Christchurch website.

The South Brighton Residents

Association said in a recent

report to the Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board that it felt

not enough was being done to

maintain the area.

Chairman Hugo Kristinsson

said perhaps if rates were

lowered for that time it would be

acceptable, but they were not.

“We can’t be used as a cast-out

for the rest of the city anymore.

There’s a sharp difference

between the east and the west

and it’s been like that for too

long,” he said.

Previously the Pegasus Post

reported that elected officials

were “furious” it has taken

the city council two years to

respond with data showing the

maintenance upkeep of New

Brighton.

A report was presented to the

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board recently that showed

residents in the ward requested

the most help in the city from

the city council on a number of

issues.

The ward had the most

and property inspection animal

control complaints.

They also had the most requests

for street shrub maintenance and

double the number of complaints

for sewer maintenance than any

other ward, during the month of

March.

Mr Gregory said at the end of

the year, the city council will be

“solely responsible” for all road

maintenance once the SCIRT

programme has ended.

Camera to catch dumpers

Bid to stop

rubbish

dumping

in Bexley

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

A camera that was previously

used to catch taggers has been

installed in Bexley to deter

anyone dumping rubbish in the

residential red zone.

The 5m tall, 2000kg security

camera was installed on the

corner of Wetlands Grove and

Morganwood St last Tuesday.

The camera is being hired by

Land Information New Zealand,

which aims to stop the amount

of rubbish being dumped in the

residential red zone.

An LINZ spokesman said multiple

rubbish dumpings had cost

more than $3000 to dispose of.

“There has been 17 events of

domestic rubbish dumping in

Bexley on Crown-owned land

since December 1, costing LINZ

$3135.67 for collection and

disposal,” he said.

Last year Pegasus Post reported

that a similar camera was

was tagged, along

with the library.

This time the

camera was

installed to deter dumpers, and

along with filming any motion

in the area, it can capture vehicle

number plates, even in pitch

black conditions.

ATF fencing contractors

regional manager Glen Taylor

(left) said there has been a

“massive spike” in dumping in

the Bexley area recently, and

the camera will act as a visual

deterrent.

“We’ve been in there testing it

at night, and we’ve found that it

can read number plates in pitch

black, so basically I’d say you

cannot hide from it,” he said.

The LINZ spokesman said

the camera will remain in the

red zone until the problem has

improved.

“(It costs) $35 a day. The

camera’s on trial and will remain

where it is until we see an improvement,”

he said.

Mr Taylor said if there’s

enough evidence to find

out whose rubbish has been

dumped, the city council will

“return” it to the owners.

“If there are bank statements,

mail, anything like that in there,

and they find it, they will return

it. I’ve seen it before,” he said.

think the camera should be

placed? Where are the target

areas for dumpers? Email fraser.

What’s in a name?

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Have you ever wondered why

Waitikiri Golf Club is spelled

differently to Waitakiri Primary

School?

Waitikiri, the subdivision and

golf club, is spelled with an ‘I’,

but Waitakiri, the school, has an

‘A’. It’s only 2.7km from one to

the other. So why are they different?

The answer goes back to 1860

when the first European, John

McLean, moved onto the now

Waitikiri land, which was used

for farming at the time.

QE II Park land use

under question

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

A surviving member of the

New Brighton Trotting Club

has signed an affidavit saying

that QE II Park was to be set

aside “for recreational use

only.”

Norma Robinson,

88, is “adamant” that

an 11.5ha block of

land in QE II Park

was never intended

to be used for educational

purposes,

and was to be used

by “the people of

Christchurch.”

Mrs Robinson

wrote an affidavit last week,

stating that the condition of the

land sale to the city council in

1963 was that the land was to

be set aside as a park for the

people to use recreationally.

Christchurch Concerned Citizens

Group chairman Garry

House is leading the charge

against the city council.

“We found a committee

member from the trotting club,

we think she’s the last surviving

member. She has taken the

steps of signing an affidavit,

which is a legal document that

PEGASUS POST

can be used in court. It’s very

seriously dealt with if found to

be wrong, and she’s thought of

that,” he said.

Mr House (left) said the

group had not decided whether

they would be taking

the city council to

court over the land

sale, but said he

would “rather negotiate

and see where it

goes.”

He said the group

will meet on Sunday

to discuss their options,

which include

“considering taking

legal action” if the council

didn’t negotiate with them.

Mr House said the group

would be pushing for Christchurch

to get a fair deal.

“We always try and negotiate

for the best deal for the citizens

on the east, and indeed for

Christchurch,” he said.

A city council spokeswoman

said the affidavit will be considered

by the hearings panel

and the city council when they

consider whether to proceed

with the proposed disposal of

the land, or not.

Property prices rise

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Newly-released statistics have

shown property sale prices in

the eastern suburbs are on the

rise.

Statistics released by Core-

Logic, a property information,

analytics and services provider,

show most properties in the east

are selling for, on average, 3.7

per cent more than they were last

year.

CoreLogic senior research

analyst Nick Goodall said it’s

good news for homeowners in

the east.

“Four of the top five suburbs

according to annual growth are

at the more affordable end of the

value range. All are below the

$400,000 median value, and all

are situated in the east,” he said.

The top five suburbs for annual

growth are Wainoni, New

Brighton, Aranui, Cracroft and

South New Brighton.

Mr Goodall said the four eastern

suburbs have been “dominated

by investors”, and the east has

been a “big growing point since

the earthquakes.”

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board member Tim Baker said

he hopes the sale prices stay the

same for a long time, but says

it’s unlikely with all the new

buildings going up in the area.

“We’ve got

drills, hammers and nails under the guidance of caretaker Woody.

CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS: Queenspark School went book mad last

week, having all sorts of activities to celebrate. Book reviewer Bob

Docherty and author Gavin Bishop visited and spoke to year 5 to

8 pupils. Pupils brought in books and swapped them for others.

Teachers swapped rooms and read to different classes, and lots of

competitions and activities went on all week. On Thursday, pupils

went to school dressed as their favourite book character.

BIG EXPECTATIONS:

Avonside Girls’ High

Schools one of three

eastern schools to

have entered teams

in this year’s Stage

Challenge. Avonside

is joined by Marian

College and South

New Brighton School.

They are three of 27

Christchurch schools

entering this year’s

competition, to

be held tonight and tomorrow at

Horncastle Arena. Students work together to create a performance portraying social or political messages,

community concepts and fantasy, which lasts up to 8min each. These themes reflect issues concerning the

students and aim to have the audience leave the event thinking critically. Avonside’s theme is ‘technology

takes over’, Marian’s performance is centred around ‘everyone is unique in their own way’, and South New

Brighton will portray ‘disconnect to reconnect’.

WINNING

PLAN: Rawhiti

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | MAY 2016

EQC’s approach to

its repair obligations

Land settlements update

Keith Land, EQC Head of Canterbury Land Settlement

EQC is now working on the remaining eleven percent of

green zone properties and red zone properties (not owned

by the Crown), which still need their land claims resolved.

“From a total of 73,000 such properties which had land claims,

there are now around 8,000 where the land claims still need to

be settled by EQC,” says EQC Head of Canterbury Land

Settlement, Keith Land.

This year EQC is aiming to complete these remaining land

damage settlements, with the majority of work focusing on

claims for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) and

Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV) land damage.

As of early May, 60 percent of potential Increased Flooding

Vulnerability (IFV) customers (9,600) have had their IFV claims

resolved. This also includes any outstanding visible land

damage settlements these customers may have.

Together with resolving remaining IFV claims, the priority now

is on settlements for the around 4,400 ILV customers. Some

properties have both ILV and IFV land damage.

“We’re on track to start making the first payments to ILV

customers from late June,” says Mr Land.

Settlements for ILV land damage will be made by cash payment,

in line with how IFV and other types of land damage from the

2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes have been settled to date.

ILV settlements will be based on one of two approaches: repair

cost, or reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land

damage – also called Diminution of Value (DOV). Information on

ILV, and details of these settlement approaches, including

answers to a number of questions, can be found on the EQC

website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV

ILV land damage settlements on the basis of DOV

EQC expects that most ILV properties will be settled solely on the

basis of DOV. This is because, where the house has remained in

place after the earthquakes (as many have), there will not

generally be repair methods available to repair ILV damage on the

property. The first payments made in late June will be to those

customers with ILV land damage whose settlements are based on

DOV. “The ILV DOV approach and settlement amounts will be

similar to how we’ve been handling IFV claims,” says Mr Land.

Claim

deadline

looming

Christchurch residents whose

homes suffered damage

in the 29 February 2016

earthquake still have time

to lodge a claim with EQC.

The deadline for lodging

a claim is 30 May 2016.

This deadline does not stop

you from lodging a new claim

with EQC if your dwelling

incurs new damage as part

of recent or future quakes.

EQC encourages anyone

whose home suffered

damage in this event to make

a claim even if the damage

appears minor.

“We’ve been working closely with customer advocates groups to

make sure the settlement communications our customers receive

is clear and helps them understand our decision.”

ILV land damage settlements

on the basis of repair cost

Work is underway to determine the settlements for ILV

customers whose payments can be based on repair cost.

“We are planning to start contacting customers in early June

who, based on the information we have to date, have the

opportunity to complete a ground repair on their property to

address the ILV land damage,” says Mr Land. Before the repair

cost settlements can be made, EQC will be working closely with

these customers to understand their plans for rebuilding on the

site and whether the plans include any ground repair.

“We will have a dedicated team case managing these customers

to ensure EQC has a good understanding of their situation and

they are kept up-to-date with their claim’s status,” says Mr Land.

Land assessments and settlements in general

“We have identified different types of land damage – visible land

damage, IFV and ILV. For each type of land damage, we use a

range of assessment processes that allow the appropriate

settlement for each customer and are consistent with the

legislation in place.

“Each property is different and is assessed on a case-by-case

basis, so one customer’s settlement is not indicative of

another’s,” says Mr Land.

For more information on the approach to land claims and their

settlement, visit www.eqc.govt.nz/land.

“We also have an open and robust review process in place for

those customers who want us to review our decisions on

whether their insured land has damage and/or the settlement

amount paid,” says Mr Land.

Check out www.eqc.govt.nz/landreview for more information

on land settlement review.

Land settlements for red zone properties

EQC is assessing all residential land claims across Canterbury

in a consistent way – whether they are green zone properties or

red zone properties.

The Government’s decisions related to the red zone are separate

from EQC’s decisions related to the assessment and settlement

of land damage claims.

As agreed with CERA and now Land Information New Zealand

(LINZ), EQC’s priority continues to be to resolve land damage

claims for properties in the green zone and those in the red

zone, whose owners did not accept a Crown offer.

“However, we continue to work with LINZ, which has taken over

management of the around 7,000 Crown owned red zone

properties. We expect to agree a settlement approach with LINZ

in the second half of 2016, applying the same policies EQC has

used to settle green zone claims,” says Mr Land.

EQC has so far received just

over 10,500 building, contents

and land claims since the first

quake on Valentine’s Day.

People can lodge claims

with EQC online at www.eqc.

govt.nz/claims via email on

info@eqc.govt.nz or by calling

0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243).

The EQC call centre is open

7am to 9pm Monday to Friday

and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

There has been some discussion about how the Earthquake

Commission meets its obligations under the Earthquake Commission

Act (EQC Act) following the release of the Joint Statement agreed

with a group of Canterbury homeowners, the EQC Action Group.

Information on what the joint statement means for customers

and how customers can request a review of their claim can be found

at www.eqc.govt.nz

EQC acknowledges that every homeowner affected by earthquake damage

faces a set of circumstances specific to their property and that a different repair

strategy is likely to be applied in each case. That said, EQC uses some general

principles when making its decisions. EQC insures an earthquake-damaged

house for its replacement value up to a certain cap, usually $115,000 including

GST, according to the EQC Act. Given there has been some confusion about

what “replacement value” means, it’s worth having a close look at the

definition in the EQC Act, which includes three main elements:

1. the costs which would be reasonably incurred

2. in reinstating the building to a condition substantially the same as but not

better or more extensive than its condition when new

3. modified as necessary to comply with any applicable laws.

Some of the commentary following the Joint Statement focused on the

concept of “when new”, which refers to when the house was new. While

“when new” is one element, EQC needs to take into account each of the

three main elements, when meeting its obligations under the Act. For

instance, the concept of when new needs to be seen in light of complying

with any applicable laws.

How ‘replacement value’ may apply in practice

Example 1

Following an earthquake, a brick chimney falls through the corrugated iron

roof of a 1900s-era villa.

The falling chimney smashes through the ceiling, shattering a ceramic light

fitting that was already badly deteriorated prior to the earthquake.

To repair the roof, the corrugated iron in the area where the chimney fell

would be replaced with new corrugated iron. If corrugated iron of the same

type as the damaged iron is not available because it is no longer

manufactured, the new corrugated iron would be a modern product, which

matches as closely as possible the profile of the damaged corrugated iron.

In some situations, the new corrugated iron may be coloured steel or

the corrugated iron may need to be repainted to match the colour of the

existing roof.

EQC may also need to reinstate or replace non-damaged parts of the roof

that need to be removed in order to repair the earthquake damage, such as

the iron ridging on the roof peak.

The repair work to the roof would be carried out to ensure the work meets

applicable laws such as the performance standards in the Building Code.

The light fitting would be replaced. If the existing wiring couldn’t be safely

reconnected to the light fitting then an Electrical Safety Inspection would be

required. The wiring would need replacing to a point where the electrician

determines it can safely be reconnected, and to meet any legal requirements

for that work.

Example 2

An earthquake damages the so-called ‘rubble foundations’ a home is built

on. If the foundation can be repaired so that the foundation is in a condition

substantially the same as when it was new and the repair work complies with

applicable laws, the foundation repair will meet the “replacement value”

standard. In other cases, to meet the standard of applicable laws, part or

all of the foundation may need to be replaced. EQC considers each repair

strategy based on the facts specific to each home. Individual foundation

repairs are dependent on the nature of the foundation, the type of

earthquake damage suffered and the make-up of the concrete.

Customers can request a review

If any customer believes EQC has missed earthquake damage to their home,

disagrees with the repair strategy EQC has proposed, or believes their

settlement amount is not correct, they can use EQC’s standard processes to

request a review of their individual claim on 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243)

or email info@eqc.govt.nz

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Reclaim your

identity

When it comes to dentures, Christchurch people

have access to world-leading techniques and oral

aesthetics right on their doorstep.

At his Montreal street studio Lovebite,

internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees creates

beautiful bespoke dentures with small

nuances in the fabrication, colour and

shape, and even slight imperfections to

create a uniquely individual smile.

There is no need for dentures to look

false. Richard takes a great deal of

satisfaction in making bespoke dentures

that look 100 per cent real and natural,

personally guiding his patients through

the transformation process to craft a

smile that reflects their individuality and

personality, and recreates their natural

pre-denture smile.

Not only do Lovebite teeth look

real, the whole structure and shape of

the patient’s face is transformed with

Richard’s top-of-the-line dentures,

something he calls his signature ‘denture

lift’.

“With appropriate facial support, the

facial tissues are brought back into the

correct position, the lips are reformed,

and beauty is restored,” he says.

it is the interior architecture of a

Lovebite denture that helps to create a

more youthful appearance by recovering

the face and skeletal shape that can be

lost after years of wearing dentures.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Richard’s vast experience includes

15 years of running his own clinic in

the prestigious harley st, London,

where he treated people from all walks

of life, from barrow boys to the rich

and famous, politicians, actors and

musicians.

his techniques are recognised as

world-leading among his international

peers, and he is regularly asked to

lecture and run courses worldwide.

Miles Cone (DMD, Ms, FACP, CDt),

a prosthodontist from Oregon, UsA,

said in November 2015: “Richard

Greenlees’ craftsmanship is as stunning

as it is unique. There is liberation in

the calculated imperfection, indeed an

asperity that reflects a purely human

element.”

in addition to dentures, Richard also

carries out crown and bridge, veneer

and implant work, in conjunction

with like-minded dental surgeons who

complement his creative and aesthetic

work.

“teeth are as different as fingerprints

and vary greatly depending on a person’s

age, sex and race. Dentures from

Lovebite reflect this, and are as unique

and individual as the people they are

made for,” says Richard.

There is nothing more satisfying for

Richard than to see his patients leave

the Lovebite studio with their selfconfidence

and identity restored, as well

as their smile.

Confidence and beauty is restored with a new

denture by Lovebite.

As the smile is transformed, so are the

patient’s confidence, and the way they

feel about themselves.

Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board

about the importance of

a community’s initiative.

Kia ora koutou.

Community initiative

is basically the ability of a

community to improve the

quality of life for everyone

in the community.

It seems like a straight

forward idea, but how do

we take it from an idea to

reality?

Well we need to decide

on our needs and priorities,

then with the necessary

skills, resources and experience,

we can work together to achieve

the desired outcome.

You see if you want to have things

that you have never had before, you

must be prepared to do things you have

never done before to achieve them.

One such proposed initiative is the

North Beach to New Brighton Promenade.

This project, spearheaded by

Community Connection

overstated.

Readers respond to last week’s Pegasus

Post article Godwit plan grounded.

Carl and Michele Craw: Talking

about red tape nonsense and Kafkaian

madness.

Not to mention a sneaking suspicion

that the powers-that-be are not willing to

help South New Brighton. Nobody owns

it? Then permission should be granted to

beautify it.

No one better than the city council

knows whose land this is exactly, and

no one better than the city council can

work the process that would enable

this wonderful project to go ahead.

Alternatively, if it is not owned by anyone

in particular, then let the South Brighton

Residents’ Association claim it. Let’s

have a petition of residents to the city

council to allow the godwits to welcome

residents and visitors alike when they

come over the bridge.

If it is fluvial progression or erosion

that the city council is worried about,

why not explain clearly how this might

endanger the proposed artwork, and in

the process suggest another site, instead

of confusing everybody with who might

or might not own this site.

Don Parish: My idea of a great spot for

the godwit sculptures would be at the end

of the Southshore spit. I have seen many

resting down there when the tide is in.

Also it can be seen from the Sumner side,

and may make people more aware of

these great birds. It also may make people

go for a walk down there to check it out,

two fold, exercise and education.

Karen Wilson: These are beautiful

and I love the position near the bridge on

Bridge St. Where else should they go but

in no man’s land? They’re wild and free.

Laurence Fairley: For godwits’ sake.

New Brighton and eastern residents are

always shafted by the city council. Put

the damn sculptures up close to where

they are, not where they put the

‘welcome’ sign which could be and is

missed by all visitors. If the city council

wants to play hardball, let them. A 2hr

working bee and they would be in and

cemented for eternity. Our godwits

haven’t given up on the eastern blocks in

spite of the earthquakes, liquefaction and

poor roads.

A reader responds to Pegasus Post

article on the New Brighton fireworks

display moving away for at least two

years while repairs are made to the pier.

Graeme Scott: I was reading in your

paper on comments about the New

Brighton fireworks. Has no one thought

of the red zone between Burwood Park

and the river as a temporary location for

the New Brighton fireworks? The area

has been made into a lovely park area

ideal for picnics with plenty of room for

temporary food stalls, entertainments and

toilets.

There is parking for thousands of cars

on the north side of the road with several

options for access to the area. It is not too

far from New Brighton and it is on New

Brighton Rd so the New Brighton brand

would not be lost.

A performing arts centre, sports

facilities, gymnasium, a cutting-edge

library and technology suites are just

some of the facilities that will be built

into the new Avonside girls’ and

Shirley Boys’ High Schools.

The two schools will be open

alongside each other on a new campus

in time for the beginning of the 2019

school year. The ministry of education

is spending at least $80-million on the

campus.

Qe2 park has been named as the

preferred site for the campus, where

it could be built alongside the eastern

Sport and recreation Centre that will

have numerous swimming pools and

water facilities.

This will be the first time in new

Zealand’s history that two single sex

schools have co-located. Avonside

girls’ principal Sue Hume says the new

campus will offer the best of both the

single-sex and co-educational worlds.

“Students will spend most of their day

in a single-sex environment but there

will be times when they can interact

with students from the other school.

for example, we’ll have a shared library,

a combined café and an extensive

bus network that students from both

schools willl use. This enables our

students valuable social development,”

says Sue Hume.

“This will a place the community can

be proud of with facilities that everyone

will be able to use. We are looking

forward to seeing the proposal become

reality.”

Connecting with students

SHirley BoyS’ High School encourages students to strive for personal

excellence. guided by the commonly known expression BTB (Better than

Before), Shirley boys develop attitudes and skills for lifelong learning and

personal growth in a positive, supportive environment. The culture and ethos

of the ‘Shirley man’ focuses on connections with students’ roots, so they are

socially and emotionally competent, resilient and optimistic about the future.

learning, both inside and outside the classroom, is specifically tailored to

suit boys needs ensuring higher engagement, resulting in greater success and

higher achievement levels. Through enrichment and acceleration classes across

all curriculum levels and subjects, Shirley Boys’ High performance Centre

offers multiple learning pathways – nCeA, igSCe and extension courses

through the University of Canterbury.

programmes focus on inquiry

learning, high thinking skills and

global perspectives.

Academic scholarships are awarded

annually to the top performing student

at each year level and an entrance

Scholarship is awarded on the basis of

an examination for year 8 students.

in January 2019, the new Shirley

Boys’ will open alongside Avonside

girls’ on the former Qeii park site.

This will be the first time two single

sex schools have co-located in new Zealand and both schools are looking

forward to the move. “There will be one campus, but there will be two separate

schools each retaining its own culture, curriculum and uniform”

says John laurenson.

Riccarton High School Peerswick Scholarship

every yeAr riccarton High School awards

two peerswick Scholarships to year 8 students

who show strengths in the academic, sporting,

cultural and service fields.

The term ‘peerswick’ is an Upper riccarton

name which has been associated with the

school since 1959 when the school magazine

was named peerswick. in the latter part of

the 19 th century, a local horse stud was called

peerswick after a famous racehorse at the

stud called The peer and the area was called

peerswick for many years.

The 2012 winners were Dean Holdaway

and rachel Wu. now in year 13, the two have

made their mark in the school just as have all

the Scholarship winners.

Winning the $1,000 peerswick Scholarship

was an achievement they were proud of as

well as providing a useful investment for

the future.

At school they gained entrance to the top

class, felt confident that they could achieve

and seeing their names on the honours board

in the hall has been a constant reminder of

their potential.

Dean came to riccarton from Halswell

School, while rachel came from Westburn

School.

Both students have a fine pedigree in music.

They are members of the new Zealand

Secondary Schools Symphony orchestra

where they play the clarinet. They have both

gained grade 8 in clarinet.

rachel was a member of the chamber group

‘papricca’ which won the people’s Choice in

the national Chamber music competition,

a fine achievement. She also sings in the

auditioned choir, ‘Stella Cantare’. Dean

plays in the Concert Band and the Jazz Band

and last year had the lead role in the school

production of ‘Bugsy malone’.

Both rachel and Dean have achieved

excellence in nCeA in both year 11 and

year 12. rachel gained 2 nd place in the Brain

Bee competition as a year 11 and has gained

distinction in several maths and science

competitions.

Dean is planning to study electrical

engineering at Canterbury, while rachel will

study medicine at otago.

As year 13s they are very involved

in student activities, organising events,

mentoring year 9s at the beginning of the year

and being role models through the school.

They feel well prepared for this task as they

have been encouraged to be leaders and show

responsibility right from

year 9.

‘The peerswick Scholarship was not only

wonderful to win, it also gave us a great

start as we began our time at riccarton. We

have had great years here and this year is no

different,’ said Dean.

Clean lint filters in

your clothes dryer

CONTINUING EDUCATION

PEGASUS POST

Ara extends vocational

training across Canterbury

BY MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK

MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Last Saturday a fire reported in a clothes

dryer in a commercial building in St

Asaph St was dealt with by the two city

crews attending using breathing apparatus

and fire extinguishers.

It’s another timely reminder that colder

conditions and the need for drying washing

inside must hit us soon considering

we’re just a couple of weeks short of officially

being in winter.

Home tumble dryers are found everywhere

and will be utilised more and more

as winter bites. They are generally fairly

safe but we do occasionally get called out

when they ignite.

The best prevention for this happening

is to clean the lint filter every time before

turning the machine on and to make sure

someone is home while it’s operating.

Then if all does go wrong the result

should be no worse than that in St Asaph

St. It does tend to ruin your day when

contacted at work to be told your house

has burned down.

Two good examples last weekend of

firefighters going the extra mile included

the retrieval of a model plane from a tree

at QE II and the assistance given to an

aren’t maintained.

elderly lady in South New Brighton.

This woman had slipped and crashed

through a glass door at her home. She

was kept in hospital overnight and then

released, only to come home to the still

broken door.

Wainoni’s crew spent an hour and a half

contacting insurance and repair people.

They stayed available for further calls but

saved some real anguish by taking charge.

That’s good work.

ArA InstItute of Canterbury is a

vibrant and progressive tertiary option for

a fast-changing world.

It was created earlier this year, when

CPIt and Aoraki Polytechnic merged,

bringing together two well-established

organisations and over 200 years of

collective experience and success.

Chief executive Kay Giles says Ara

brings together the best knowledge,

expertise and the greatest passion for

teaching, to deliver a superior learning

experience and the very best outcomes for

graduates, employers and new Zealand

“Ara is all about equipping graduates

with real-world industry-relevant

knowledge and hands-on experience to

help them get the career they want, then

excel in it.”

At teaching centres spanning the region

from Kaikoura to Oamaru, Ara provides

tailored programmes and skills training

designed to lead to rewarding careers.

“Whatever your dreams and goals,

every prospective student will find an

opportunity and path of learning at Ara –

from Level 1 basic numeracy and literacy

to Level 9 Masters qualifications,” Giles

says.

“What’s more, Ara provides a greater

number of programmes, more online

or blended delivery, more flexible

part time options, workplace training,

apprenticeships, flipped classrooms and

“Ara is all about equipping

graduates with real-world

industry-relevant knowledge.”

group work. This includes innovative

collaborations with other educational

providers and industry.”

Ara is the Maori word for path or

journey and represents the learning

process and the many pathways to success.

Giles says Ara stays relevant by using

learning models that are constantly

adaptive, flexible and responsive to the

industry and regional needs. “Whatever

career you choose, and wherever it may

take you, as an Ara graduate you can be

sure that your knowledge and skills will

always be relevant and you’ll be ready

for the challenges and opportunities our

changing world presents.”

Volunteers wanted for

dementia sufferers

Alzheimers Canterbury is looking for

recruits to join its volunteering service

by becoming a companion, activities

assistant, or driver for people with

dementia.

A companion visits an Alzheimers

Canterbury client on a weekly or fortnightly

basis. They may go for a walk,

watch a movie or have a cup of tea and

a chat.

Alzheimers Canterbury volunteer

co-ordinator Monique Schoneveld

said they are trying to help dementia

sufferers have “fun and meaningful”

lives.

“We want clients in our community

to live well with dementia, to have fun

and meaningful lives. Volunteers can

play a huge role in this often being the

highlight of their day,” she said.

Activity assistants help with a

community activities programme run

through Alzheimers Canterbury, and

give clients opportunities to enjoy the

things they used to in a normalised,

safe and supported setting.

Activities include swimming, community

gardening, art appreciation,

baking for Ronald McDonald House,

and others.

Another way to make a client’s day is

as a personal driver. Many clients have

lost their driver’s license so transport

can be an everyday hurdle.

To make sure a volunteer is

compatible with a client, there is

a matching service run through

Alzheimers Canterbury, which ensures

a match.

To find out more about how to

become a volunteer, companion,

activities assistant, or driver for a

client, email monique@alzcanty.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Widely recognised trades training

the sOuthern Institute of technology

Christchurch campus in hornby offers a

great range of education possibilities for

those looking for a trade’s qualification.

If you are keen on getting involved

in Construction, we offer the national

Certificate in Building, Construction and

Allied trades skills, a 12 week, Level 2

programme. This programme provides a

pathway for students to enter into a range of

trade-related professions and its main focus

is teaching them the practical skills they

require for further study.

We also offer the Level 3 Certificate

in Construction, where students spend

three days on campus and two days out in

the community on work experience. All

students are involved in building a house

from scratch, ensuring sound practical skills

in conjunction with classroom learning.

Our programmes are widely recognized

within related industries and sIt has a

proven record of students moving into

employment or apprenticeships.

Courses are nZQA approved and

students are eligible for student loans and

allowances.

spaces for midyear 2016 are filling fast

and demand for affordable trades training

is high.

to find out more, discuss options or tour

the facilities, call 0800 tO stuDY (0800

867 883), go to www.sit.ac.nz or visit the

campus at 60 Waterloo road hornby.

Not all first aid certificates

are created equal

While first aid courses must

achieve prescribed new

Zealand Qualification

Authority (nZQA) standards

to be certified, not all training providers deliver

the same course. Providers offering shortened

courses or courses not meeting nZQA training

requirements are now in the spotlight.

nZQA and the Department of Labour have

published a factsheet to outline requirements

for first aid training based on currently

registered nZQA unit standards. Below are a

summary of what we think you should know.

Course differences

training providers can market their courses

under a wide range of names. employers

should be cautious in thinking that a one-day

workplace first aid course will meet their needs

in industries such as construction, engineering,

forestry and industrial. More advanced

learning is important to meet the proper

workplace assessments and meet health and

safety obligations.

If there are risks of falling, or medium to high

injury, then take careful look in the shortened

courses as these subjects may not be covered.

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure

that employees attend courses appropriate to

their industry risks.

Unit standard-based first aid training

The minimum duration of first aid training

and assessment will be for training based on:

• unit standards 6400, 6401

(or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551),

a minimum of 12 hours’ training and assessment

• unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or

26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training

and assessment

• For refresher training where the learner’s

certificate is no older than two years and three

months from date of issue, a minimum of six

hours’ training and assessment

First aid training must cover the outcomes

of the nZQA first aid unit standards being

assessed and any additional modules identified

by the employer through the workplace risk

assessment process as outlined in Department

of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training

providers accredited by nZQA can award the

credits and issue a first aid certificate.

nZQA conduct regular external evaluative

reviews on all training providers. new Zealand

red Cross is proud to hold a double highly

Confident accreditation in both educational

Performance and Capability in self-Assessment.

This means that nZ red Cross is a Category

One training provider.

First aid refresher training

refresher training is required every

two years to maintain the certificates.

The requirement allows for a

three-month period of grace, so the cut off

period is two years and three months, which

should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a

suitable course.

If a certificate is not renewed for more

than three calendar months from the second

anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for

the certificate holder to complete full first aid

training to maintain currency.

For the purposes of workplace first aid

emergency management, employers will need

to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain

competency at all times.

HORTICULTURE

Enrolment are now open.

Entry to this programme is open to NZ
