BACK ON THE AIRWAVES

Radio New Brighton relaunched – and from the footpath

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Radio New Brighton has been

relaunched, but instead of

broadcasting from a caravan,

they have decided to hit the

streets.

The station was back on the

airwaves on Friday, after a

four-year hiatus.

But instead of going back

to a caravan they used to use

for their broadcasts, presenter

Chris Diack decided to use

New Brighton as his recording

booth.

“We’re out here now, with

the locals. We could be here

one day, sitting in a coffee

shop the next, and somewhere

else the next,” he said.

The show’s simple set-up

allowed them to broadcast

from wherever they were.

“We’re set-up here at the

New Brighton Project at the

moment, but I expect we’ll be

roving around in the next week

or so,” Mr Diack said.

After the earthquakes,

Mr Diack took the radio

equipment to bars and

community centres in the New

Brighton area. Mr Diack said

anyone was allowed to “jump

on the mic” and have a go.

“We just set it up on a stage

with a microphone and told

people if they had a talent or

wanted to play music or sing a

song, then they should go for

it,” he said.

Mr Diack said a lot of

people used that as an outlet

for stress during the months

directly after the February

2011 earthquake.

Mr Diack is a Redwood

resident, but makes the trip

to the seaside every morning,

because he’s “sick” of the

treatment its residents have

received after the earthquakes.

“New Brighton tended to be

getting the rough end of the

stick when it came to support

from the city council and

community boards, so we just

felt that giving it publicity will

get it more attention,” he said.

If you’re interested to hear

what Mr Diack and the rest

of the team at Radio New

Brighton are talking about,

tune in to 87.9FM, or in

Aranui on 88.3FM.

Green light for RSA expansion

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The New Brighton RSA received

another post-earthquake boost

when it got the tick to go ahead

with a games room.

The New Brighton Returned

and Services’ Association has

been fighting the city council for

a resource consent for the games

room for the past 18 months.

But on Friday morning, New

Brighton RSA secretary and

manager Garry House received

an email from the city council,

telling him they had the green

light.

The city council did not want

to grant the consent because it

said there was insufficient parking.

It wanted 20 car parking

spaces.

Mr House said it has a free

shuttle which takes up to eight

patrons to and from the club, so

they shouldn’t have to have more

parking.

“The main stumbling block is

that they wanted us to have extra

car parking. We don’t have the

land and we don’t support drink

driving, so we supply a free shuttle,

which seats nine people, to

pick up and return members and

guests to their homes,” he said.

Mr House said that it would

be “irresponsible” for the RSA

to add in the extra spaces, as

the building is situated between

Mafeking St, a no exit street, and

a long, skinny driveway, leading

to Hood St.

GREEN LIGHT: The

New Brighton RSA

had great news

arrive on Friday

morning when the

city council approved

a resource consent

for a new games

room. Left: Secretary

and manager Garry

House with the RSA’s

courtesy van.

The RSA is paying for the

games room out of its own budget,

which has been overseen by

Mr House. He said the original

cost for the room has gone out

the window.

“We had budgeted for $30,000

to be spent on this project. But

now because of this (resource

consent battle), we are over

$40,000,” he said.

The games room can now go

ahead, but there is no time frame

yet, as to when it will be ready.

The city council tried to answer

questions from the Pegasus

Post, but were unable to respond

as staff were away.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should the

RSA have to find space for more

car parking? Should the city

council be more lenient? Email

GREEN LIGHT FOR

CORRECTIONS FACILITY

The Department of Corrections

has been given the go-ahead

by the city council to begin

building a new facility of

Pages Rd. The single-storey

building will have a gross

floor area of 1402.8 sq m,

including garaging and storage.

The facility will serve as a

community-based corrections

building, which includes

with community work and

community corrections

services. It will be built next to

the Nga Hau E Wha National

Discuss future of red zone

New

Brighton

Union Parish

co-ordinating

minister

Mark

Gibson talks

about the

upcoming

residential red zone meeting

tomorrow.

The public meeting to

discuss the future of the

residential red zone is for

everyone with an interest in

the future of the zone.

So community groups

championing creative projects,

ex red-zoners, people from

neighbouring suburbs, or

anyone else who has ideas

about what could happen there

should come along.

The meeting is being hosted

by Wainoni Methodist Church

where I am doing transitional

ministry.

We have a huge interest in

the future of the RRZ because

we are located within it. Our

hope is to be there long-term.

The meeting will be held

tomorrow, from 7.30pm to

9pm. We’ve worked closely

with city councillor Glenn

Livingstone in organising the

meeting.

The agenda is very simple.

I will speak briefly as the MC

about the background to the

meeting, the wide and diverse

interest range of creative

projects that have emerged

from the community postquake,

and the setting up of

Regenerate Christchurch.

I will also talk about the

driving instructions given to

the chairman Andre Lovatt

– by the earthquake minister

and the Mayor.

Aspects of this letter

have raised questions in the

community about the process

that is going to be used to

determine future uses of the

red zone land.

From there in groups and

then in plenary we’ll look at

the issues people have with

the instructions given in

this letter, and then at where

people would like to see the

process going from here.

This is an opportunity for

the community to give Mr

Lovatt driving instructions

as well. He will be there, and

will respond to what is said

near the end.

It is critically important that

the community continue to

SOAP

BOX

front-foot the RRZ process,

rather than be reacting to what

is being determined higher up.

The Crown is the legal

owner of these lands but

emotionally, morally and

spiritually they belong to the

communities of the east, and

the groups and organisations

who have invested hugely in

developing exciting plans for

future use. It is vital that there

is huge recognition of this

investment.

What we hope to come

out of this meeting or

conversation is a transparent

and fair process around the

decision-making determining

future uses of the RRZ.

We also hope to see a strong

collaborative relationship

between the community and

central and local government

as this process unfolds.

Readers respond to last week’s

story about seven godwit

sculptures, and the potential for

them to go in “no-man’s land”

near the Bridge St bridge.

Lyn Willyams – An

unbelievably stupid response

from the city council. If it is

no-man’s-land it belongs to

everyone and that’s where the

sculptures should be placed. The

concept drawing looked beautiful.

Wake up council. We need some

beauty in the east. It must be so

frustrating for all those folk who

come up with great ideas and

are then told it’s not possible,

especially when it obviously is.

Graham and Jan Edwards

– The spot suggested near the

Bridge St bridge is ideal. It will

bring joy to hundreds of people

a day. Rather than standing

in the way of the idea the city

council should do its job and

find a solution to the “no-man’sland’’

issue and move onto more

positive community advising to

help the people of Christchurch.

Wayne Hawker – It is totally

unbelievable that the city council

condemns the erection of the

godwit sculptures on the southeastern

entrance of the Bridge

St bridge. Reasoning that the

land does not belong to anyone.

What a great opportunity to

construct an interesting and very

appropriate piece of artwork

on a piece of land that nobody

owns. No doubt the city council

maintains the land on either side

of the approaches to the bridge

– who else would? Given that,

then why not use the land and

maybe the artwork would become

a tourist destination. After all the

city council are looking for draw

cards to revitalise New Brighton.

Grace Mann – Read the article

in the Pegasus Post. Think the

concept of what the sculpture

would look like is great. Seems

a sensible idea to put it on

land that no one owns. Do the

godwits care? They just like a

good-feeding ground. It will be a

great introduction to South New

Brighton to have the sculpture by

the Bridge St bridge.

Small buses in service

ROAD

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Smaller buses are on the way

for the Burwood Hospital to

New Brighton route.

Starting with eight new vehicles,

the Red Bus initiative saw

the first small Mercedes-Benz

City 45 bus go into service on

route 535, from Eastgate to

Rapaki last week.

​The next shipment to arrive

will also serve that route, and

the remaining six will be put

straight into service on other

routes upon their arrival from

Germany in June and July.

They will take the place of

bigger buses, which are 11m

long and can

carry up to 55

passengers.

Burwood-

Pegasus Community

Board

member Linda

Stewart (left)

said the new

buses were “exactly what the

community needed” and had

been waiting for.

“It was ridiculous seeing great

big empty buses rattling down

the roads. It shook the houses a

lot, too. So this is exactly what

we wanted,” she said.

NEW BUSES: These 17-seater buses are on their way to replace those currently used on the 135 route.

The new 17-seater buses can

take up to 22 passengers, will

be more cost effective and are

accessible to the elderly and

disabled. They can also take two

bikes on the front.

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said the

only changes made are to the

vehicles.

“The change is just to vehicle

size, the timetable won’t

change,” she said.

The spokeswoman said the

changes were not made due to a

lack of patronage.

A report in 2014 showed that

bus travel had declined from 5.1

per cent of people in 2006 to 3.7

per cent in 2013.

ECan overhauled its bus network

in response to earthquake

migration in December 2014.

Ms Stewart said it was a combined

effort by residents groups.

“I hope this works. If people

say this is what they wanted

and we’ve worked to get it and

ECan have put the pressure on

their contractors to bring in the

new buses, then I hope it works.

But I am thrilled to bits,” she

said.

The Red Bus group will have

the smaller buses replace their

larger predecessors on the 107,

108, 135 and 145 routes over

the coming months.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think

smaller buses for the 135 route

is a good idea? Email fraser.

Elizabeth Challies

Puzzle expert in the zone

Elizabeth Challies, 34, was recently crowned the 2016 New Zealand

open vaki puzzle and sudoku champion. She bounced back from narrowly

losing last year by seven points to register a record score of

14,195. She speaks to Andrew King

Elizabeth, you are the New

Zealand sudoku champion,

how does that feel?

It feels pretty good. I was

really pleased with my score because

I did better than last year.

I was really in the zone that day.

So it is all about the personal

score rather than beating

other players?

Pretty much. I think the score

matters more as I am trying to

beat myself. I like to see improvement

in everything I do.

So when you found out you

had won how did that feel?

I actually thought there might

have been a problem with the

website when I saw my score.

But then I realised I had beaten

my last year’s score by quite a

bit so I got pretty excited. Last

year I placed second, I was extra

determined this year as I had

lost last year by the tiniest of

margins.

What did you win?

The New Zealand Puzzle Association

is posting a medal and

a shirt to me for being the New

Zealand champion.

Tell me what it is like to

compete in a sudoku tournament?

It is a really friendly sort of

competition because everyone

is really competing with themselves.

It is online and you can

have as many goes as you want

so there really is no pressure.

I get the puzzle and just dive

straight in, then it is just me and

the puzzle.

How did you get into sudoku?

I have always loved puzzles. I

like to try all them out and they

are so accessible so I can get

them anywhere. I have been into

them since I was a little kid.

What made you want to

start competitively doing

sudoku?

I found the website when I

was poking around on the internet,

did a few for fun then saw

there was a competition and said

might as well have a go.

Do you win prize money for

the events?

That would be nice, but no. It

is all about personal satisfaction

for me anyway, I just want to

beat my last score.

What was the first puzzle

you did?

I can’t remember what I got

into first. I know I started off

with puzzle books that have a

variety of different ones in it to

challenge myself.

Where did she go to school?

I went to Burnside High.

Tell me a bit about how

school was for you?

I quite enjoyed

school. I

was quite

motivated

and kept

my head

down.

SATISFIED: Elizabeth Challies is New Zealand’s sudoku champion.

Were you good at maths at

school?

At high school I was good at

maths and science. But at primary

school I was pretty good at

English and literacy in general.

But there was a switch in high

school I am not sure how that

came about.

Tell me a bit about your

friends?

We were not sporty at all

although a few of us did get into

ballet. I love movies and coffee

all the usual.

Does being able to think

logically to solve puzzles help

you with your job?

Well, I work at the post office

so it doesn’t really help all that

much. Thinking logically really

helps me with puzzles but it gets

a bit much sometimes so I have

taken up abstract painting to pull

myself in a new direction.

Abstract painting, that’s a

bit different from puzzles?

Yes, it is but I love it. I like

making a mess with the paint on

a canvas. It is just something a

bit different.

Do you have any other hobbies?

Painting is the main other

hobby aside from puzzles. I also

like going to the gym and I am

part of a writers’ group.

What do you do with the

writers’ group?

The writers are a group of

people interested in writing and

reading. It is a lot of fun and I

have met a few good people in

it.

Speaking of friends, do you

get them coming to you for

sudoku pointers?

Not really. Most people say

I can’t do those but they have

never attempted to do one. I tell

them to chose an easy one and

give it a go. You never know

you could be good at them.

Have you ever been completely

stumped by a sudoku

puzzle?

Yes, I have. I find sometimes

when I get stuck I

put it away then come

back to it and then I

find I can work it out

quite easy. Sometimes

you look and look and

look and can’t see

what the pattern is,

when that happens it

is best to put it away

and come back to it

later while you mind

is fresh.

Was this year’s

score your best

ever?

Yes 14,195 is

my best score

ever. It is tallied by a

combination of time

and points. You lose a point for

every second you spend solving

a puzzle, gain points for a correct

placement and lose points

for a mistake. At the end of the

thirty minutes the four highest

scores from solved puzzles are

added together and that is your

championship score. You can

chose the size and difficultly of

the puzzle, bigger ones get you

more points so you work out

which one will you will able to

complete in the time allowed.

Now you are the New Zealand

champion, will you try be

the world champion?

I hadn’t thought of that. I

would have to look into it.

Youth offenders to benefit

from bicycle repair project

Prisoners may be given a bicycle

on their release, thanks to a new

youth offender project.

A repair workshop has been

set up in a disused shed at

Christchurch Men’s Prison,

which has youth offenders

repairing old bicycles.

Once they are ready they are

given to released prisoners who

may be in need of the most basic

means of transport in their early

days of release.

The idea came from Youth

Unit staff who have been

coming up with innovative ideas

to provide the youth prisoners

with activities.

Principal Corrections Officer

Gary Smallridge said the focus

of the project is to identify

ways to keep youth engaged in

education and learning.

“We aim to provide activities

that not only occupy the young

prisoner’s time but also add to

their learning, with tasks that a

typical young person would be

interested in,” he said.

The project is proving to be

a hit with the youth offenders,

said youth unit corrections

REJUVENATION SCHEME: Youth Unit Corrections Officer Kieran

Giles helping one of the youth help restore a bicycle as part of the

prison’s new youth strategy acceleration project.

officer Kieran Giles, who is

helping with the project.

Mr Giles said he has combined

his bicycle mechanical and

adventure outdoor experience

to help young men learn real

mechanical skills.

The Pathway Trust has been

supplying tools to repair and

restore the bicycles.

He said he intends to

refurbish the old prison

bicycles before being provided

with disused ones from the

community through The

Pathway Trust’s donations.

Community centre opened

FRASER

WALKER-PEARCE

The Aranui Wainoni

Community Centre

was officially

opened with a

stirring haka from

Aranui High School

students.

A total of $5.9

million was set

aside for the

centre, including

a $450,000 contribution from

Lions Clubs International

Foundation and $1 million from

the Christchurch Earthquake

Appeal Trust.

The 967 sq m building has a

hall with a half basketball

court, retractable seating,

indoor and outdoor stages,

sports changing rooms, kitchen

facilities, and meeting and office

spaces.

It will provide a place for the

local community to once again

gather for cultural, recreational

and educational activities and

events.

Aranui Primary School

principal Mike Allen said the

new facility is “perfect” for the

community.

“Outstanding, there was a great

turnout for a great building. It

has exceeded expectations,” he

said.

The facility was opened

on Thursday by Mayor

Lianne Dalziel, Lions Clubs

International Foundation liaison

Digby Prosser, board of trustee

member Nigel Jeny, and Aranui

Community Trust chairman Rob

Davidson.

Ms Dalziel said the Aranui

community will “breathe life”

into the new facility.

“The spirit of those who

brought life to the two halls that

preceded it are imbued within

these walls and the Aranui

community will breathe life

into this wonderful facility once

more,” she said.

Pupils from Avondale, Wainoni

and Aranui Primary Schools led

the crowd in a waiata before

students from the Aranui High

School Academy performed

the haka and the building was

blessed.

Cycle safety for children

FLEUR MEALING

A cycle safety programme has

made a return to the eastern

suburbs after a five year hiatus

due to the February 2011

earthquake.

Rawhiti School pupils took

park in a city council Cycle Safe

programme last week.

Cycle Safe is a programme that

teaches school children the basics

of cycling, but also gives them

confidence to cycle on

busy streets.

City council cycle safety education

co-ordinator Sarah Cooper

said it was important children

were taught cycle safety, even

more so post-earthquake.

She said it is a skill that

applies to all aspects of transport

and taught pupils how to

“approach roads appropriately”

instead of avoiding cycling as a

bunch.

A study by the New Zealand

Transport Authority found that

cyclists were the second most

likely people to die on roads

between 2009 and 2013.

A Taste of Heaven at Indian Heaven

Indian Heaven in Avonside is justly

proud of its mouth-watering menu.

Specialising in food cooked in a

tandoor and its delicious biryanis,

there is an extensive range of yummy

options to tickle all tastebuds.

All their dishes are prepared

using traditional Indian herbs

and spices which not only

add flavour but have health

benefits used in the sub-continent for

centuries. All their meals are freshly

prepared so you can choose to enjoy

delicate flavours or be brave and go

for the hottest version. The variety of

meals covers the wide range of styles

unique to different areas of India:

some are rich and creamy and others

are hot and sour.

Favourites such as Butter Chicken

and Madras and Vindaloo curries

are on the menu, rubbing shoulders

more unusual dishes like London

Garlic Chicken, or

Chicken Chatinaat. As

well as lamb and beef

options there are plenty

of choices for vegetarians

and fish lovers, including

Kadai Paneer and Indian

Heaven’s own Fish

Special using

the chef’s secret

recipe. Even the

accompaniments

are that bit more

special with Mint

Chutney and

Tamarind Chutney

as well as more traditional Mango,

and Zafrani Pulao rice as well as

plain rice. Naan and roti breads

are cooked in the tandoor to give

that amazing flavour and are served

piping hot and fluffy.

To cool you down during your meal,

try an Indian Masala Tea or a Mango

Lassi, and if you still have room,

their wonderful home-made Indian

desserts will please even the sweetest

tooth.

Their banquet menu and fabulous

service makes Indian Heaven a

great choice for functions and family

gatherings, and their a la carte menu

Advertising

FeAture

Disclaimer: The views, opinions & assumptions expressed in this advertising feature article are solely of the author, Bryan Staples, Earthquake Services.

If you ever doubted what I and others have been saying about

EQC and insurers, then the last few weeks has seen them laid

bare.

• EQC says it is still less than one third of its way through the

6000+ botched repair jobs it has accepted, as new requests

continue to pile up.

• The High Court ordered a major insurer, which signed a

contract for a couple’s rebuild and then baulked, to pay the

settlement in full.

• EQC wants to turn off the tap on second time repairs.

• Insurers cry crocodile tears over the time EQC has taken to

put properties over cap.

• A landmark agreement saw EQC confirm that repairs must be

to ‘when new’.

• As a result, EQC and insurers will now face a surge of new

claims, possibly as many as existing claims

• This may include previous, unfair settlements

It’s now 6 winters of discontent. You should not still have to be

battling EQC or your insurer.

You should not be fighting to get shoddy repairs assessed

properly and repaired to what your insurance policy promised.

Earthquake Services is New Zealand’s leading advocacy

service and litigation funder on behalf of people like you who

don’t have the resources to fight injustice. We take all the risks

and charge you nothing until we settle your claim.*

• Are you someone who gave in and cash-settled only to now

realise you can’t afford to repair your house to ‘when new”

condition.

• Does your house still shake after the repairs have been done?

• Do you live in a multi-unit dwelling where you are told to accept

what other residents are accepting when your insurance

policy offers more?

• Not happy with your repairs? Or just want them checked to

make sure they comply with building standards.

• Have you ever looked under your house? We will.

Earthquake Services is there to fight for you and we take all

the risk.

Here’s what some of our clients have to say:

“We have been mistreated by our insurance company, bullied

by their lawyers and pushed to breaking point. Bryan has

helped us every step of the way... He is always available and

always willing to help. He calmly talks us through our concerns

and sends us on our way feeling confident and supported.

Thanks again,” Jerry & Aimee, New Brighton

“To Bryan Staples and crew - a big thank you for believing

in the fact that New Zealanders like myself were to be really

tested beyond reason returning to NZ to set up a business …

You surrounded yourself with people who stood for justice,

and positive accurate reporting, something quite rare in today’s

world…” Business owner, Christchurch.

“We went to Bryan and Earthquake Services because

we didn’t have energy, the resources, mental or

physical, to try and sort this out. We had nowhere else

to turn to. We have put our faith and gone through step

by step with Bryan. He has calmed us down and taken

this on for us. We want our home repaired or replaced

– that’s what our policy says.” Gavin, Mairehau

Whether you live in Mairehau, Marshlands or Merivale -

we will fight for you.

Even EQC is now saying if you feel short-changed,

you should commission your own engineering reports,

builders’ estimates, legal advice and other expert

findings, then bring these to EQC and request a reexamination.

Of course EQC knows many people won’t know how

to start this process, let alone be able to afford to do it.

And when you do start, more often than not they say ‘We don’t

agree and’ you are back to square one.

We don’t take take ‘No’ for an answer

We get the evidence and you pay nothing to us until settlement*

• If your home is damaged, awaiting repair or demolition, come

& talk to us.

• If you are living in a home with shoddy repairs, we will get the

repairs your policy provides for.

• Please don’t blame builders for dodgy repairs; blame the poor

assessments by EQC and insurers who refused to budge

even when builders told them the repairs wouldn’t work.

We will be there for you throughout – providing advice and

support. We won’t promise overnight success. Our courts

have at least another five years of earthquake-related claims to

resolve. Don’t be the last one through the door.

I do advise you to act now to ensure EQC & your insurer repair

your home to “when new” condition.

Dr Michael Naylor, senior lecturer in finance and insurance at

Massey University gives this warning. “Treasury will have to

rapidly rework its estimates. They must be hoping that most

Canterbury quake claimants do not realise the implications of

EQC’s statement… because EQC has chosen to refuse to

admit it was wrong, it has decided to phrase the agreement

as merely reaffirming what it is already doing. This means that

the concession is unlimited, as all prior claimants can ask for

a review. This expands its liability hugely… The only way EQC

can restrict the fall out is to play hard-ball with any claimants

who ask for a review.”

My team at Earthquake Services is ready to fight for you.

You don’t have to take it anymore. The time to act is now.

Gateway programme

our gateway programme is well underway for this year – with 15 students

already placed on workplace learning.

The purpose of gateway is to enable schools to provide senior students with

opportunities to access structured workplace learning that has:

• a formalised learning arrangement set in the workplace

• specified knowledge and skills that a student will attain

• specified assessment methods (workplace learning)

here are a few career options our students have chosen for their

gateway programme:-

helicopter pilot

Furniture making

Police Force

Flight attending

health & Wellness

retail

animal care and vet nursing

auto mechanics

Fashion design

We are very grateful for the

component of their programme.

emme is one of our Year 13 students currently on gateway. She is completing

her work experience with russell of Fredricksons Furniture. russell is very

supportive of our students and keen to share his knowledge.

Hospitality department

our hospitality department has a new edition – a 3 head barista machine.

Senior students who have achieved their barista certificate are now able to

‘fine tune’ their skills and use the staff as

their coffee ‘guinea pigs’ – much to the

An epic adventure

our Senior outdoor education class last week completed an epic adventure

- the St James Walkway. This 67km tramp, which is classified as an advanced

walking track through the stunning and temperamental lewis Pass, is

generally completed over 5 days. With a poor weather forecast looming,

the team completed the tramp in just 4 days, and avoided the showers

(aka torrential rain) by having a day off - an awesome day was spent doing

assessments, Pilates and having deep and meaningful conversations with

each other in the hut! it was the experience of a lifetime, and we all have

many memories to carry with us on our continuing learning journey in the

outdoors!

Mrs Michele ring is our receptionist

here at school. This is the 2nd year that

she has been on the tramp with us.

Michele made comment that although

the weather was very much against us,

and everyone was tired and sore from

completing the walk a day earlier, it

was the support and friendship of the

students that stood out for

her above everything else.

What’s been happening

at our school??

Deloitte GROW is a free programme for Year 11 and Year 12 students that

focuses on the different ways to grow money. This programme provides

our young people with real world, hands-on learning on what it’s like to

successfully transfer knowledge, skills and creativity into ways to make

money.

our Year 11 and 12 students were divided into teams, with each team

receiving $5.00. each team then had to use the $5.00 in such a way that they

would double (or more) the money by starting up various business ventures.

These included car washing, baking and cooking.

By the end of the programme, the money raised was donated to various

charities. one charity which benefited from the programme was the SPca.

We’re building 2 weather stations – we recently applied for a STeM grant

through the caltex “Fuel Your School” initiative, which sees schools receive

funding towards improving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and

Mathematics). Our application was accepted and we were granted $4500.00

We are certainly putting the money to good use - building 2 weather stations,

which is a collaborative project between Digital Technologies, Design and

Visual communication, Materials Technology and a contributing school. it is

scheduled to be completed by the end of term 3.

Board of Trustees Student

Report, 17th May 2016

Roadshow - During week 2 and 3 of this term, groups of students headed out

to their former schools to promote our school to the students. This was a good

chance for students heading into high school next year to get a good feel of

what Mairehau has to offer and to feel the enthusiastic energies coming from the

students who attend.

GaTE Conference (Gifted & Talented) – The senior gaTe students attended an

all day conference on Friday 13 May. The conference covered subjects such as ‘are

our mind and brain separate things, what is real, and if the existence of god can

be known’. Despite the brain sizzling topics students enjoyed the conference. one

student commented that it ‘was very intellectually stimulating and that it really

makes you think’.

University of Otago Trip – on the 8th to the 10th May a group of six senior

students went on a trip to Dunedin to look around the university. Mrs MacKenzie

and Mr lake travelled with them. The students were able to walk around freely

and sit in on open lectures, course presentations and go on laboratory tours in

the subject areas that interested them. The accommodation halls were also open

to the public, and tours were offered to give our students a better sense of the

environment they could choose to live in next year. The trip was a really good

bonding exercise and helped them make some big decisions for their futures.

Executive Trip – The student executives, our school leaders, went on a trip to

Wellington during the 16th to the 18th of May to attend a leadership conference.

This has taught them valuable life skills in communication and being an effective

Following in father’s footsteps

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Shirley baseball player Nikau

Pouaka-Grego has been named

the first ever under 13 New

Zealand player of the year.

Baseball New Zealand named

Nikau, 11, as the award’s

recipient during its first national

awards evening, held on May 14

in Auckland.

He is the son of Todd Grego,

a former Australian baseball

representative, who also played

for New Zealand in softball.

Canterbury Baseball

Association president Brian

Hemera said Nikau “starred” in

last year’s New Zealand Ripken

All Star under 13 team, when he

was only 10 years old.

“He has been selected again

for the 2016 Ripken team this

year, to be held in July and

August,” he said.

Nikau was unsure he would

be picked for this year’s New

Zealand Ripken side, and said

it was “painful” waiting for the

call from the coaches.

“Yeah it was exciting to

be picked, but pretty painful

waiting for that call. I kept in

contact with quite a few guys

who all got in, and they let me

know when they got in,” he said.

Mr Grego coaches his

son’s under 13 club team, the

Christchurch Redbirds, based in

Parklands, as well as the under

15s side, but said schooling is

the number one priority for his

son.

“We really do put pressure on

him for school work and things

like that as well. That’s his

number one, and baseball is a

back-up plan . . . but absolutely

baseball it’s his number one

love. He wants to go to a college

in America and then turn pro,”

he said.

Nikau said if he had the

choice of American colleges to

attend, he would go for the big

ones.

“Yes, I want to go to some

of the top colleges, like UCLA

(University of California, Los

Angeles), LSU (Louisiana

State University), or Vanderbilt

University, Virginia. It’s been

my dream since I was five,” he

said.

TALENT: Nikau Pouaka-Grego, 11,

recently won the under 13 New

Zealand player of the year award.

He has been picked to represent New

Zealand in a second tournament this

July.

It seems to have taken forever

but this week I finally left for

work with ice on the truck

We’re only a fortnight from

winter proper and from here

on I’d expect the climate will

reflect that.

This means all those things

that colder weather bring us can

be expected to happen. Things

like seeing walls or wood sheds

burnt down because someone

has taken the ash out in the

wrong type of container and left

it in the wrong place.

Things like electric blankets

left on too long with weight

on them setting beds on fire.

Things like the placing of stuff

that can burn too close to a

heater or fire. It’s time to be just

a bit more careful.

This week’s weather included

the very high winds that struck

on Monday night.

The Fire Service were turned

out to about 15 calls related

to the big blow. From power

lines down to roofs lifting these

region. Little River’s brigade

were turned out to three separate

trees over within an hour.

The city crew was sent to an

empty fire damaged house that

threatened to lose the roof and

a whole two-storey wall. It was

busy for an hour or two.

The church in Bishopdale

that was set alight last Sunday

morning is a pretty sad commentary

on the modern world.

Once churches were places

anyone could go for sanctuary.

Now they need locked doors and

security. Not a great reflection

Exciting New Information

& Service Centre for Seniors

LIfe CAn get tougher as we get older,

and it’s often easy to think that we should

simply struggle on. Yet a huge range of

services is available to make life easier.

Because these services are sometimes

difficult to find, a new non-profit

Centre for Senior Wellbeing has been

established. They offer a useful mix of

affordable services and information on

other community services such as falls

Prevention and Green Prescriptions.

Their desk is manned by dedicated staff

who will connect you to the services you

need. Although much of this information

can be found on-line, for many this is a

burden and talking to a ‘real person’ is

much more pleasant.

Problems with feet is a real issue

for many older people with limited

flexibility. The Centre offers inhome

footcare for a reasonable fee.

Additionally, there are services provided

by dieticians to help with weight gain

or loss, nutrition and shopping. Also

occupational therapists who help

maintain independence, safety in the

home, and practical strategies for

coping with issues like memory loss and

pain. Speech and language therapists

support those with swallowing and

Chronic pain in one

of your joints?

Even if your joint is not in the best

shape, a major part of the pain could

be caused by the muscles surrounding

the joint.

At Physical Sense we have good results

with releasing the muscles (with hands

on techniques) and increasing your

strength and flexibility. Within a few

treatments you will know if this is

what you need.

A particularly beneficial and underused

of us caring for our loved ones see it as

our duty and deal with the stresses this

brings on a daily basis. Caring for Carers

has helped carers through their range of

services for years, such as information on

The Centre for Senior Wellbeing will

put you in touch with service providers

like Physical Sense. They offer a range of

practical support-solutions to problems

many seniors encounter. There are

exercise classes for stroke survivors where

clients can either further improve or at

least maintain their condition after they

leave hospital. There are four classes a

week which help with strength, balance

and transferrable skills. There are also

other diagnosis-specific classes including

Intermittent Claudication, Diabetes and

Osteoporosis which means users can learn

about their condition and share their ways

of dealing with it. There’s even a general

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Herbs & Natural Ingredients Give Powerful

Support For Your Immune System!

ReSeARcHeRS HAve shown that

certain herbs and natural ingredients

can dramatically reduce your chances of

succumbing to colds and flu.

Formulas like Go Healthy “Go vir-

Defence” has been based on the latest

research and has already proved itself too

many.

Due to the high potency extracts used

in this formula most will find only one or

two capsule daily sufficient to keep our

immune system at optimum, however at

the first sign of any immune attack, e.g.

headaches, sore throat, aches etc the dose

should be increased to one or two capsules

up to three times daily. Most will then

find the symptoms will disappear quickly

without getting worse.

Go vir-Defence contains the following

powerful ingredients:

Olive Leaf extract has become one of

the most popular ingredients used in the

treatment of immune attacks as it has

strong anti-microbial properties that help

slow the growth of bacteria and prevent

the replication of viruses.

Garlic extract is effective in combating

bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting

the immune system. in general it may be

used as a preventative for most infectious

conditions, digestive as well as respiratory.

The anti-microbial action makes it suitable

for treatment of respiratory infections,

influenza, recurrent colds and respiratory

catarrh.

Andrographis extract has powerful

immune enhancing properties and has

been shown to help prevent the common

cold as well as reduce the duration and

severity of the symptoms of the common

cold.

echinacea extract is a natural antibiotic

and infection fighter. it helps kill bacteria,

viruses and fungi and provides powerful

immune support.

Pau D’ Arco extract assists in enhancing

the body’s immune system.

citrus Bioflavonoids work with vitamin

c and support the immune system as well

as strengthening capillaries and reducing

inflammation.

vitamin c is a powerful antioxidant and

helps counteract many types of bacteria

and viral infections.

elderberry extract provides nutrients for

immune support.

Zinc is an essential mineral for the

immune system and general health. it is

required by every cell in the body. it is

common to have sub-optimal levels of

Zinc. Zinc possesses anti-viral activity.

Generally this all-natural formula is

very safe and highly effective without any

side effects but due to the high potency

extracts used please check with us first if

you are on any prescription medication.

This formula is also not suitable during

pregnancy or lactation.

TURMERIC - The spice

with profound healing abilities

An Ancient spice called turmeric and

its active ingredient curcumin have been

proven to reduce and even eliminate pain

and inflammation better than leading

prescription medications. inflammation

seems to be the common factor in

all disease and even aging. turmeric

effectively reduces inflammation while also

stopping the initiation of inflammation in

the first place. By stopping inflammation

at the source it seems to work wonders for

aches, pains, swelling and arthritis while

at the same time supporting the healing

process with its powerful antioxidants. This

is where anti-inflammatory drugs fail, they

only disguise the problem but do nothing

to support the healing process and in fact

may even allow the problem to worsen.

india is a country where turmeric is

highly respected for its health giving

benefits. it is consumed on a regular basis

and researchers believe this is probably

the reason many common diseases are far

less common in india that other countries.

A study of 2,700 elderly indians in rural

north india found less than 1% had any

sign of Alzheimer’s, the lowest rate ever

recorded, whereas compared to America

the rate is now closer to 33%.

The #1 cancer center in America, MD

Anderson, now uses turmeric with its

cancer patients. Dr. Bharat Aggarwal,

lead researcher at MD Anderson says

they have not found a single cancer that

curcumin has not worked. curcumin binds

to 33 proteins, allowing it to interrupt a

multitude of pathways tumors use to grow

and spread, including the growth of new

blood vessels that feed tumors. it can even

cause the cancer cells to “commit suicide”

without damaging healthy cells.

curcumin appears to be a potent weapon

against cardiovascular disease also. in

recent research it was shown to lower

triglycerides (considered a major risk

factor for cardiovascular disease) by 65%.

Another study found it to decrease oxidised

LDL cholesterol by 33% while increasing

the HDL (good cholesterol) by 29%, and all

this in only seven days.

Researchers have now shown curcumin

to be beneficial in over 600 diseases

including type 2 diabetes and even

depression.

The secret with turmeric is its active

ingredient curcumin. curcumin however

has low bio-availability so not much will

be absorbed into our bloodstream. Meriva

as used in GO-tURMeRic has overcome

this problem with its patented molecular

delivery system that offers superior

absorption of curcumin. Because of this

enhanced absorption GO-tURMeRic has

the potential to be beneficial in numerous

ailments and offer significantly greater

benefits than standard turmeric.

The Spice with a Profound Healing Ability!

TURMERIC

Researchers cannot believe how effective turmeric & its active ingredient curcumin

is proving in supporting the natural healing of the body, with some calling it a natural

cure-all. It has been found beneficial in well over 600 diseases. Research has shown

a common factor with disease is inflammation & this is where curcumin is amazing.

It naturally reduces inflammation present while also stopping inflammation from

starting in the first place. This allows the body a much better chance of healing itself.

Studies have shown curcumin to be more beneficial than common prescription drugs

for pain, swelling & inflammation.

Curcumin however is normally poorly absorbed in the

body but a patented extra called MERIVA (available as GO-

TURMERIC) has overcome this with their molecular delivery

system. Meriva is significantly better absorbed giving it the

potential to support the healing of numerous ailments.

Curcumins have been shown to support:

• Joint health, reducing pain, swelling, inflammation & stiffness

GO-TURMERIC

contains the advanced

MERIVA-CURCUMIN for

Superior Results

• Cardiovascular health, reduces risk factors like CRP (C-Reactive Protein),

increases good HDL cholesterol while reducing oxidised LDL cholesterol,

lowers triglycerides (considered a major risk factor for heart disease) by as

much as 65%, supports healthy blood flow

• The body’s natural healing process & without side effects

• Cancer (According to Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, lead researcher at MD Anderson,

the #1 cancer center in America, they have not found a single cancer that

curcumin has not been beneficial

• Alzheimer’s & dementia (several small studies have shown dramatic benefits

even in advanced stages)

• Depression (Two recent trials have shown curcumin highly beneficial)

• Diabetes (One study by the “American Diabetes Association” found curcumin to

be 100% effective in preventing type 2 diabetes. Other studies have shown it

to protect against diabetes-related complications.)

Hillmorton provided me with a

wealth of opportunities to learn

in different environments, and

challenged me to achieve with

each and every opportunity.

I was also lucky enough to meet

stable, that paid

the most or that

was expected by

helped me find

myself. I also

began to learn and

accept challenges

that were and

to never yield or give up but to

a huge emphasis on both

quality and space, creating

as it is stylish and well-appointed.

A total of five bedrooms are complemented

by three bathrooms, including an ensuite off

The kitchen is large, with a skylight bathing

the entire area in natural light and an array

of quality appliances, ensuring the ability to

cater to all occasions.

The 2.7-metre stud enhances the sense

of space in the living and family rooms,

while bold splashes of colour punctuate the

personality while still leaving scope for the

Indoor/outdoor flow was a priority

in the design phase, and the brief was

certainly fulfilled. Two of the bedrooms

enjoy direct access outside, while the open

Karrin Allyson with the

Tom Warrington Trio

INTERNATIONALLY renowned

jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson and the

Tom Warrington Trio are coming to

New Zealand and play one

Christchurch gig at the Jazz School

Auditorium on Thursday 2nd June.

The five time Grammy nominated

chanteuse, who's career ha spanned

the past three decades, is known for

her impressive musical range and

impeccable intonation. She glides

effortlessly between bittersweet and

sassy, covering the greats from Duke

Ellington through to Dizzy Gillespie.

Accompanying Karrin is the

acclaimed Tom Warrington Trio.

Made up of Tom on bass (Buddy

Rich/Stan Getz), Joe La Barbera on

drums (Bill Evans/Tony

Bennett/Woody Herman) and Larry

Koonse on guitar (Seth

McFarlane/Cleo Lane), the ensemble oozes

skill and experience.

Be swept away by smooth jazz performed by

these world class musicians direct from the

USA.

CPIT Jazz School Auditorium, 130 High

Street. Tickets $38 GA/$20 Students, available

at Eventfinda.
