Council earns praise for

coastal hazards process

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A LONG time critic of a

controversial coastal hazards

report says the city council has

finally got the process right.

South Brighton Residents

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson (below) has been vocal

in his opposition to last year’s

report, saying the science behind

conclusions was not sound.

​But he says the city council

is on the right track after it,

on Thursday, approved GHD

Consultant’s terms of reference

for an expert panel to review the

report.

The city council came under

fire for the

Tonkin + Taylor

Coastal Hazards

Assessment

Report, released

in July, which

identified 6000

properties that

could be susceptible to erosion.

It also reported that nearly

18,000 homes were at risk of

coastal inundation over the next

50 to 100 years.

Last year the report was

independently reviewed by

Dr Terry Hume of Hume

Consulting Ltd, but the science

of the findings was widely

questioned by the communities

affected.

IN DANGER: The Spit, off Southshore, was discussed in Tonkin + Taylor’s report on coastal

hazards as being one of many at-risk areas. ​

The city council decided in

December that another review

should be carried out with more

community input.

Mr Kristinsson said he was

pleased to see the shortlist of

experts approved by the city

council, when they accepted

GHD Consultants’ proposed

terms for the report.

The city council also approved

the scope of the review, scientific

and a preliminary timeline for

the panel to have completed the

review.

GHD Consultants national

business group manager Maurice

Hoban said they appointed a

community reference group to

“call the shots” when making the

proposal.

“We’ve been talking to the

affected communities for

some time, asking them who

they’d like to see on the panel

. . . through mid April to mid

May we discussed the terms of

said.

The shortlist for the expert

members, three scientists, a legal

expert and a statistician.

The scientists will have local,

national, or international

expertise.

CHOCOLATE CHEWED OVER AT COUNCIL

A HEATED discussion was quelled

at a city council meeting last week

when a councillor was told to “eat a

over a deputation presented to the

Still friends after 66 years

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

FRIENDSHIPS formed in high

school 66 years ago are still

going strong for an Avonside

Girls’ High School group.

Avonside Old Girls, a group of

10 women who all began at the

high school in 1950, at age 14,

celebrated their 66th anniversary

as friends on Friday.

This year, the women met in

Huntsbury for a late lunch, a cup

of tea, and a chin wag about the

“good old times” from 66 years

before.

The group was originally 13

members, but a few have passed

on. The group is now made up of

Joy Masters, Eleanor Gillespie,

Rosalind Fahey, Moyra Forsyth,

Rosemary Harper, Valerie Percy,

Alison Royfee, Norma-Anne

Prior, Pam Howell, Aileen Rice,

and Fay Powell.

Some members have known

each other since 1941. Mrs

Gillespie, Mrs Percy and Mrs

Harper all attended Opawa

Primary School together.

Mrs Gillespie said the group

only meet a few times a year, but

their friendship has remained

strong over time.

“We meet every two or three

months. It’s been 66 years since

that all started, and now we’re

all turning 80,” she said.

The members will or have

turned 80 this year, but Mrs

Gillespie said that doesn’t mean

any of them have lost their

marbles.

“It’s amazing because when

we were at school, we had the

choice of commercial work,

or home life. And we all chose

commercial work. I worked until

I was 65 as a clerk, and some

still do some work. We all still

have our marbles,” she said.

She said from their original

Avonside class of about 20, the

original group of girls from that

class still “catch up and have a

yak” every two or three

months.

“There was only ever

about 21 in the class,

and we have lost three

members along the way,

they’ve passed on. So we

are doing really well,”

she said.

Mrs Gillespie said

if she could give any

advice to young people

going through school

now, it would be to keep

your friends.

“Make the most of every

In Brief

QE II LAND SALE DECISION

The hearings panel in charge

of deciding whether a portion

of QE II Park should be sold

to the Ministry of Education,

has decided that it should,

with minor adjustments. They

recommended the sale proceed,

so long as some land is retained

to enable the Travis Medical

Centre to use it for customer

car parking, some of the park’s

memorial trees are protected,

a publicly-accessible walking

track is created, and the proceeds

from the land sale go towards the

development and implementation

of a master plan for the entirety

of QE II Park.

RED ZONE MEETING

A meeting was held to discuss

the future of the residential red

zone last week. Organised by

New Brighton Union Parish

co-ordinating minister Mark

Gibson, the meeting was

Regenerate Christchurch take.

The community want Regenerate,

charged with the development

of the residential red zone, to be

clear and transparent in their

decision-making. Regenerate

chairman Andre Lovatt said

success for him is having the

community involved throughout

the process.

Veterinary practice

TINKER – THE SURVIVOR

There is never a dull

moment at McMaster &

Heap vets and funnily

enough the critical

serious cases mostly

show up on weekends,

or 7pm at night. I’d

arrived into work one

Saturday to help out

and Tinker was in our

surgical area, having

just been transferred

from the After

Hours Clinic. He

looked terrible (

his face had taken

the full impact of

a collision with a

car) but he was on

a fentanyl drip and

his pain seemed

well managed.

Miraculously he

had survived and

his success story is

due to not just our

surgical efforts that Saturday but also the

events that took place by many people

prior to us seeing him.

His accident happened Friday night and

some great human being saw him on the

road and immediately delivered him to

the After Hours clinic, which incidentally

saved his life. We are so fortunate to have

an emergency centre open through

the nights and weekends when other

clinics have closed. The team there

swiftly examined and

stabilized Tinker and

started him on pain

medications, antibiotics

and intravenous fluids.

Then his owners were

contacted as Tinker

wore a collar with

nametag attached. This

means of identification

(or a microchip) is so

important because

without an owners

consent we can’t really

treat a critically ill

patient to save its life.

He was monitored and

cared for all night until

he was dropped off to

us Saturday morning.

Even though it was a

weekend with less staff

rostered on, I knew

Tinker couldn’t wait

until Monday for surgical

repair. His lovely, worried

owners wanted for us to do “everything”

we could to ensure Tinker came home.

That’s where our outstanding team need

to be greatly commended, because

regardless if any of them had plans that

night, they all, without me asking, stayed

late to ensure the best possible care

and attention was given to a critically ill

patient.

Tinker was anaesthetized, his skull

was radiographed and I repaired his

mandibular jaw fracture with wire and his

hard pelate injury. He had a massive gnash

under his chin that required suturing and

he had several broken teeth. A feeding

tube was placed in his oesophagus to

enable us and his owners to feed him

post operatively. Cats with fractured jaws

can take weeks to eat on their own. Steve

was called in to assess his eyes as they

were completely closed over and I wasn’t

sure whether he had retinal injuries, lens

or corneal damage.

Luckily Steve felt

there was no ocular

damage, just a lot of

bruising and facial

swelling.

Tinker was managed

intensively over the

coming week, his

days spent with our

hospital nurses and

nights at the After

Hours. He needed

everything done

for him from feeding six

times a day, loads of medications to be

given, his face washed and he needed

grooming as he couldn’t do this for

himself. His owners

visited him daily and

he really loved their

visits. He was the

perfect patient to treat

– he was stoic, obliging

and grateful.

Tinker was a FULL

TEAM effort and I’m so

pleased to report he’s

home now, lounging

on beds, walking

around his section,

able to groom himself

and even eating a

little on his own. Steve

and I couldn’t do the

job we do without the

dedicated, caring staff

we have.

A fantastic outcome

and even though

Tinker looks a little

facially different now,

his owners report they have their “old”

friend back.

Don’t leave the

kitchen when cooking

• Mark Thomas

– Fire Risk Management Officer

IT’S BEEN a while since I’ve talked

about cooking fires in kitchens but there

were five of these this week including a

couple that caused quite considerable

damage and inevitably one that resulted

in ambulance treatment for the house

occupant from smoke inhalation.

As always the advice is the same. Don’t

leave the kitchen when you’re cooking on

the stove top.

If you are cooking with fat or oil have

the lid of the pan, an oven tray or a

breadboard always available to slap on

the top if the worst happens and flames

appear.

A quick fix with no ongoing problems

or a kitchen on fire with the weeks of

inconvenience that involves. It should be

a no-brainer really, shouldn’t it?

A number of quite odd fire calls

featured this week. A fish smoker was

found on fire in Barrington Park. A

distraught Mum was attended to in

Addington where she had locked herself

out of the house with two toddlers inside.

A lady rang for help because she had

found a mouse in her laundry. A crew

were called to accident and emergency

the hospital to help a young woman

whose finger was somehow struck fast in a

doorknob.

Finally, we had a call to a car fire at

In harmony for last time

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

TWO EASTERN schools

celebrated a last musical hurrah

before one will close its doors

forever.

It was a bittersweet ending

to May, New Zealand’s Music

Month, for Chisnallwood Intermediate

School and Avondale

Primary School, as it was the

last time they would ever sing

together.

Chisnallwood and Avondale

joined forces on Friday to sing,

as they have done for the past

five years. But this time was

different.

Avondale is closing at the end

of the year to make way for the

new super school being built on

the site of Aranui High School,

Haeata Community Campus.

The two schools celebrated

their last chance to collaborate,

by singing the annual Hook,

Line and Singalong competition’s

winning song, We are

Aotearoa.

The competition was set up by

the New Zealand Music Commission

for schools to submit

original songs for judging. The

winning tune was recorded by

its Auckland-based creators in a

professional studio.

Chisnallwood’s head of music

Judith Bell said the two eastern

schools have sang each year’s

competition-winning song for

the past five years.

“We have had a tradition for

the last few years of combining

Chisnallwood with Avondale to

celebrate New Zealand Music

Month by singing the winning

song together. Almost 1000

voices singing along with ukuleles,”

she said.

Mrs Bell said Chisnallwood

had decided this year they

would turn the singing into a

school house competition, with

each house’s rendition being

judged.

“When we hosted the New

Zealand Ukulele Trust’s development

squad, one of the girls

in that squad learned that week

that she’d won. So she performed

We are Aotearoa to the

school. Then we took the group

to Avondale and they sang it

there too,” she said.

She said this year was particularly

special to the two schools,

as it would be the last time they

could perform together.

“This year’s event is especially

significant because it is the

last year we can do this with

Avondale Primary as they

close at the end of the year,” she

said.

In Brief

DRIVER HURT IN CRASH

A teenage driver was taken to

hospital with moderate injuries

after a car crash in Avonside last

week. The crash happened on

Avonside Dr on Wednesday. St

John was alerted at 11.20am.

MODEL CLUB OPENED

A club in New Brighton recently

celebrated its first public event,

and plan to expand further

into Rawhiti Domain. The New

Brighton Radio Controlled Car

Club was set up by Phillip Cossar

earlier in the year, but was only

opened to the public earlier this

month. The first event took place

on Sunday. The club was set up

with funding and help from the

Rawhiti Community Sports Inc

and the city council who have

given the group some land at

Rawhiti Domain. Mr Cossar said

he hopes the radio controlled

car club could be the first step in

creating a hobby park that could

include a lake for radio controlled

boats, and somewhere to

fly radio controlled planes.

Residents can now finally have

a look at the first design of the

Ruth Gardner

Retired but still involved in community

Ruth Gardner worked

as Volunteering

Canterbury’s

manager for more

than 20 years

until she retired

last month. Fraser

Walker-Pearce

talks to her about

voluntary work after

the earthquakes,

running the show

at wedding

ceremonies, and

living with the

town crier

How long have you been

involved with Volunteering

Canterbury for?

I’ve been involved

with Volunteering Canterbury

for 21 years.

And what have you

achieved in that time?

They weren’t just my achievements,

I was leading a great team

that led a whole group of volunteers

and encouraged volunteering

throughout Canterbury.

How many volunteers did

you get into the community in

your time? Do you know the

number?

Thousands in my time, I

probably couldn’t tell you the

exact number. After the earthquake

there was a lot of informal

volunteering, and it took time to

become more formal again. By

the end of my time there, we were

having a couple hundred volunteers

a month applying.

So who is next in line for your

job?

The organisation has decided

now to have two managers, one

that does marketing outreach,

and she’s been there for four

years, and there’s a new man that

will be coming in too.

What was some of the work

you got involved with because

of the earthquake?

RECOGNITION: Mayor Lianne Dalziel spoke at Ruth Gardner’s retirement function to recognise

her work for Volunteering Canterbury over 21 years.

Well we had a lot to do with

clearing liquefaction off the

streets with the help of volunteers,

the Student Volunteer

Army and the Farmy Army. We

made sure those people that

needed help got it.

How many people are involved

in Volunteering Canterbury?

There are only two paid workers

full time, but there is another

group of about 10 who help out

voluntarily. They do store work,

accounting, PR work, stores or

expos, website, trust board, all

kinds of things, whenever we

needed something we knew

where to find those people.

Wow, sounds like you’ve had

some busy days?

It was always busy, always

varied, and there was always

something different every day. It

keeps you on your toes.

Did you still feel like that at

the end of your 21 years?

Yes, absolutely, I still feel like

that, I had just had enough of full

time work, so now I’m able to do

other things which is great.

Oh that’s good then. What do

you do in your spare time now?

I still actually do a bit of voluntary

work, I chair the residents

committee in the Avon Loop,

and that’s with a lovely bunch of

people too. At the moment we’re

working hard to rebuild a local

community centre. There’s seven

on that committee, and others

help around the place. I’ve been

involved for quite a long time.

But since the earthquake the need

has become different for a lot

of communities. We also have a

community cottage that we maintain

and rent out.

With Volunteering Canterbury

did your role change after

the earthquake to more of an

emergency recovery mode?

Yes it did, in fact we had to put

some of our policies to the side

after earthquake. Because there

were urgent things that had to

happen right away, and a lot of

informal volunteering took place.

It was also a bit difficult in terms

of health and safety with people

going around those dangerous

chimneys.

Are you from Christchurch?

I’ve been here for 30 years

and I was also brought up here,

so I’ve spent more than half

my life here, but I was born in

Auckland. I went to St Albans

Primary School, and then

back to Auckland when I was

about 10, and lived there for 20

something years, but now I love

Christchurch and I wouldn’t

leave.

Oh that’s good to hear! What

high school did you go to?

Epsom Grammar in Auckland.

I don’t have a degree but I did

feminist studies at Canterbury

University and a bit of study at

the polytechnic. And I’m actually

a celebrant too, with the certificate

and everything.

Wow, you’re qualified all over

the show.

Well, when you’re in the voluntary

sector you never know what

will come in handy, and what

different skills are useful.

And now that you’ve retired

from Volunteering Canterbury,

do you plan to do a bit more

with your celebrant’s certificate?

Oh yes, absolutely. Now that

I’m retired I’m hoping to do more

celebrants work.

Do you know how many weddings

you’ve done?

Oh, I really don’t know. I’d say

about 100 weddings, but a lot

fewer since the earthquakes. But

I’m hoping now to have more

time to do more weddings. I’m

also a keen blogger, I write about

anything that’s going on around

here, and anything to do with the

central city. I’ve been doing that

for 10 years, and I have more than

1000 followers, which has taken a

long time. But that’s on realruth.

wordpress.com if you wanted to

have a look.

Very good, I definitely will.

What are some other hobbies?

I enjoy my garden and I write

poetry. I write mainly rhyming

poetry, I joined a group of

women poets, and I like to walk

and relax with friends.

And are you married with

kids?

Yes, I’m married and two adult

daughters who both live in England.

Both near London, one is a

lawyer and one is an IT manager.

They’ve done very well, yes.

And does your husband work

still?

Yes, he does – he’s actually the

town crier. It makes for some

interesting conversations for sure.

He’s originally from England, but

Choir’s heartfelt tribute

• By Tom Doudney

A TIGHT-KNIT choir

group have recorded a

song for the funeral of

a terminally ill former

member now living in

the Netherlands.

Women in Harmony

recorded East

Timorese hymn Ita

Hotu Maromak Nia

Povo We Are God’s

People at the request

of Dorien Pel who is

dying of cancer.

Ms Pel was a long

time member of the

choir up until about

six years ago when she

first developed

cancer.

When her house

was damaged in the

September 2010

earthquake, she

moved back to her

country of birth, the Netherlands,

for what was supposed to

be six months.

But the stay ended up becoming

permanent.

In spite of surgery, the cancer

had returned and Ms Pel

was already planning her funeral

in the Netherlands when she

returned to Christchurch for a

visit in December and January.

Choir member Judi Smitheram

said choir members had met Ms

HARMONY: Choir member Dorien Pel, standing with red scarf, fifth from

left, with the choir in 2007.

Pel at a social gathering and sang

together again.

“Dorien was wonderful at

always bringing poetry to our

gatherings and she had written

a poem especially for us,” Ms

Smitheram said.

It was during this visit that

Ms Pel asked if they would

record the song, which the choir

had not performed in more than

eight years.

The choir sourced a recording

of the song from Australia’s

Radio National station to help

them go over it and get the

pronunciation right, as the words

are in the Tetum language.

After recording it, they sent it

to Ms Pel.

“We got a lovely note back

from Dorien saying how much

she appreciated it and she was

very moved,” Ms Smitheram

said.

Women in Harmony has

about 20 members from around

Christchurch.

Tradesmen off

to national skills

competition

• By Matt Salmons

TWO TRADIES will put

their skills to the test when

they represent Canterbury

in the national WorldSkills

competition later this year.

Marshland welder Liam

Robertson, of the Lyttelton Engineering

company, and Spreydon

plumber Jesse Pitts, of On

Tap Plumbing, won their places

after completing two challenges

tailored to their trades.

The pair, both 19, will travel

to Hamilton for the national

competition from September 29

to October 2. Both are alumni

of the Ara Institute of Canterbury.

Here they will be competing

for a place in New Zealand’s

WorldSkills team, the Tool

Blacks. The national team is set

to compete in the international

WorldSkills competition in Abu

Dhabi in 2017.

Mr Robertson was tested on

his welding abilities and Mr Pitt

on making piping using different

materials. They were judged

on speed, planning accuracy,

ability to use materials and tools

and the quality of their finished

products.

Ara plumbing tutor and

judge of the plumbing competition

Blair Maguire said all the

competitors were reasonably

even, and the final decision

might come down to one point.

The international WorldSkills

competition is run every two

years. It pits young men and

women from all over the world

against each other in a competition

of skill based on their

profession, be that plumbing,

carpentry, baking or any of the

more than 40 categories.

Ara tutor and regional

competition facilitator for

plumbing, Ritchie Gorrie, said

WorldSkills was the “Olympics

of trades”.

Mr Gorrie has been to three

international WorldSkills events

and was impressed by the skilllevels

on show and the interest

in the competition internationally.

He said there were about

200,000 spectators in Leipzig,

Germany in 2013, where bricklaying

drew the biggest crowds.

​Charity that helps most vulnerable falls on tough times

• By Tom Doudney

A LOCAL trust which acts as a

problem solver for vulnerable,

disadvantaged and struggling

people around New Zealand

said it is in urgent need of

funding.

SigJaws Trust helps people in

a variety of ways, from lobbying

for retention of services, suggesting

changes to legislation,

finding work and housing and

promoting innovations.

However, project manager

Gary Watts (right), who founded

SigJaws in 2001, said the

trust had been struggling

financially for some time

and needed more funding

to carry on.

The trust’s operating

expenses were “conservatively”

about $207,000

a year and while it had

enough to carry on over the next

six months, finding new funding

was a big challenge.

“We have got over 200 clients

now that we are dealing with on

a day to day basis and a

lot of these people have

slipped through other systems

big time,” Mr Watts

said.

“We always struggle

to get resources. I don’t

think people even realise

what we do half the time

but we do some amazing things.”

One of its recent projects has

included working with Canterbury

University to develop a

robotic arm which would allow

mobility-impaired drivers to

fill up at petrol stations without

leaving the car.

The trust had received funding

from organisations including the

Ministry of Social Development,

the Rotary Club of Christchurch

and The Lion Foundation within

the last year.

However, it had been unsuccessful

in seeking funding from

the Red Cross, the Canterbury

Community Trust and the city

council.

“If our funding dries up it’s

just impossible to carry on,” Mr

Watts said.

SigJaws Trust board member

Jamie Hoffman, who has cerebral

palsy said Mr Watts had been

pivotal in helping him find suitable

accommodation after the

earthquakes.

“People just don’t realise how

much good he does out there,”

Mr Hoffman said.

Rugby league more

than just a game

New

Zealand

Rugby

League

general

manager

for the

southern

zone Steve

Martin talks about the

popularity of league in

the eastern suburbs.

The extremely successful

visit to Christchurch by

the Penrith Panthers NRL

side and the New Zealand

Warriors, shows what an

appetite Cantabrians have for

rugby league.

To sell out AMI Stadium,

the former home of rugby

league in Canterbury and the

scene of many past historic

encounters, was a superb feat.

The community was well

served by the high level of

engagement undertaken by

the two teams in the time that

they were in the city. A huge

number of young people were

able to interact with the stars

of the game.

The programme, delivered

to schools across the city,

was very well received and

continued the theme of rugby

league being ‘more than just

a game’.

Sport can be a catalyst for

many positive outcomes for

communities and individuals

alike. Rugby league has

shown that it is a game that

cares about its people and

their health and well being.

The environment for

delivery of opportunities to

play the game has improved

immensely with a variety

of measures that have been

undertaken.

Rugby league has fought

to shrug off the negative tag

which it has often been given.

And with events such as the

Panthers and Warriors game,

the prospect of a new home

for rugby league was created.

With the potential for

a team from Canterbury

being involved in an NRL

competition, and the chance

for there to be a Rugby

League World Cup fixture

in Christchurch next year,

the future has never looked

brighter.

The challenge facing the

sport is the same as that of

all sports, finding volunteers

prepared to take on the many

key roles that are needed to

run the game at club level

and to coach and manage

teams.

With participation numbers

continuing to rise and interest

high, Canterbury Rugby

League is positioning itself

to provide the best possible

support to those wanting to

be involved in the game.

Rugby league is truly ‘more

than just a game’.

Readers respond to a recent

article on proposed godwit

sculptures being installed into an

area of ‘no-man’s land.’

Bon Suter – I love the idea of the

sculpture on no-man’s land. Seems

very fitting to me.

S Coleshill – What is it with

some residents of New Brighton and

Southshore in regards to the godwit

plan?

Five years have passed, surely our

priority is the rebuild of our shopping

area. Has everyone turned a blind eye

to what is becoming a ghost town?

A mini revolution is needed, but

instead of heads rolling, councillors

and mayoral seats. We need fresh

blood who has the verve and the

tenacity to bring this area back to life.

Who knows, 2022 could well be

when this phoenix rises. But I doubt it.

Readers respond to an article on

smaller buses being installed to

the 135 route from July onwards.

Brian Sandle – Years ago I was

told that peak hours required large

buses and it would be a waste of

investment to have them sitting idle

while smaller buses were used for

lower volume times.

We should promote bus use and

the coastal areas should be setting an

example as they are under a global

warming threat more.

The city council is in charge of

stopping positions and I have asked

them to do a crime prevention

through environmental design study

on where the stops are placed.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel wants to take

PEGASUS POST

over the routes, too. Who would use

buses more if stops were placed in the

busy, lit area between Countdown

and the New Brighton Club?

Norah Southorn – It was very

pleasing to read of the introduction of

the Red Bus service being introduced

on four routes in the eastern suburbs.

However, it would be even more

pleasing, if this service could be

expanded to the Dallington and

North Linwood areas as well.

The people of North Linwood

and Avonside areas have no bus

service other than the Orbiter, and

Dallington has a rather limited

service, the number 44.

I travel the full length of this

service regularly and find it a rather

epic journey on an extremely long

and tortuous route, the buses old and

rattling.

If the route could be altered to

continue over the Dallington bridge

down into North Linwood and

Avonside, and the Shirley loop cut

out or incorporated into another

service, it would attract more users.

If this was done using the small

new buses, I think the patronage

would greatly increase.

As it is, travelling on the number

44 bus is quite an unpleasant

experience and I can understand

people not wanting to use it.

Big sports gear give to school

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A four week campaign asking

people to donate their old sports

equipment has ended with bins

full of gear being given to Shirley

Intermediate School.

The Westpac branch at The

Palms Shopping Centre last

month set up a container in

store, asking customers to bring

in their used sporting gear for a

good cause.

It was a drive from the iSport

Foundation, led by former All

Blacks Ali Williams, Richie

McCaw and Dan Carter, aiming

to get more sports gear into

Canterbury schools.

Westpac, The Palms, branch

manager Mark Jenkins said

the bank got on board with the

iSport Foundation’s drive.

“Westpac, about a month ago,

decided to ask customers for

any old sports gear they weren’t

using anymore and bring it into

the branch. We had a great big

poster of Richie McCaw asking

them to bring stuff in. I think

that got most people’s attention,”

he said.

Mr Jenkins said the first week

of collection was quiet, but soon

a bin had “overflowed”, so others

were brought in.

After about a month, the

“six or seven bin” haul was gifted

to Shirley Intermediate, just

across the road from The Palms,

and was gratefully accepted.

NEW GEAR: Shirley Intermediate’s Ben Cox and Lucy

Cook-Darke from room 2 show off some of the new equipment

with Westpac, The Palms, branch manager Mark Jenkins. ​

Shirley Intermediate principal

Geoff Siave said the generosity

of the bank was “just fantastic”.

“There was cricket gear, football

gear, hockey gear, football

and rugby boots, tennis racquets,

hockey sticks, swimming gear,

bike helmets, a scooter or two,

and balls of all shapes and sizes.

It’s just fantastic for us,” he said.

Mr Siave said sports teacher

Kyle Anglesey already had plans

for the new equipment.

“The sports teacher said he

will use some of it for his classes.

But he also said he will be giving

some equipment to specific kids

who need it. So he’s told kids to

come in and see him for equipment,

for things like boots for

their sports if they don’t have

any,” he said.

SCHOOLS

CROSS COUNTRY: Blue, gold, red, and green could all be

seen dashing through Shirley Boys’ High School last week

during their annual cross country event. On Monday afternoon,

runners dressed in their house colours, ran along the back

of the Shirley Village to the Averill St gate, before taking the

western North Parade footpath to the library gate. They went

along the football and rugby field boundary to the finish.

Sport

Club day celebration

By Gordon Findlater

SHIRLEY BOYS’ High celebrated

their annual club day in style.

On Saturday, all of the Shirley’s

school teams took to the field at

their home ground.

The first IV took the limelight

staying unbeaten in the UC

Championship, defeating Burnside

19-5.

The home side had the best of

the early going. Shirley first-five

Jackson Taylor continued his

fine form with the boot knocking

over two penalties to stay

amongst the top points scorers in

the competition.

Nathan Koolen grabbed the

first try twenty-six minutes

into the game, finishing a wellworked

move in the corner

before Jackson calmly converted

the toughest of his four successful

kicks, taking his points tally

past 40 for the season.

Ill-discipline snuck its way

into the second half of the game

with both team dropping down

to 14 men towards the end of the

game. Burnside centre

Mike Ravalawa had been sinbinned

for repeated dangerous

play, he would return with less

than a minute of the game to

play. However, he crossed the

line to get a late consolation try

for his side.

The next test for Shirley has

them travel south to tackle Timaru

Boys’ High who will be fresh

after a bye.

PEGASUS POST

READY TO PLAY: Shirley prepare for battle against Burnside,

last year’s finalists remain unbeaten in this year’s UC Championship.

HOMETOWN HEROES: Year 5 and 6 pupils from Queenspark School attended a Crusaders training

last week and got to meet some of their heroes. Crusaders first five-eighth Richie Mo’unga

(pictured) sat down and had a picture with Noah Barrett and Manaia Wharepapa (right) after their

training session at Rugby Park. The Crusaders will take on the Chiefs in July after the international

rugby window passes.

Reading to Dogs

Every Tuesday, 3.30-4.30pm

Reading aloud is critical when

children are learning. However,

many children have difficulties

reading and become self conscious

when reading in front of

their peers. Libraries and schools

around the world have found

that by sitting down and reading

to a friendly dog, a child’s fear of

being judged or laughed at ‘over

mistakes’ disappears. Bookings

are essential, phone 03 941 7923

Tips for untreated

hearing loss

Hearing is a sense that many of us

take for granted. Throughout our lives, we

subject our ears to loud sounds–music,

power tools, lawn mowers, air travel–

without using ear protection. regrettably,

this can cause hearing loss. also, the

natural aging process generally results

in hearing loss. even certain illnesses

and medications can adversely affect our

hearing. Unfortunately, hearing loss that

occurs from such causes is permanent.

The good news is, even if you already

have a little hearing loss, it’s never too

late to preserve your hearing for the

years ahead. The first thing you can do is

protect your ears in noisy environments.

also, avoid using cotton swabs to clean

your ears. and, make it a priority to get

a baseline hearing screening to see if

hearing loss has already occurred.

if hearing loss is found during your

hearing evaluation, it could be due to

excess ear wax or infection. This type of

hearing loss is reversible. if hearing loss

stems from chronic exposure to loud

noise, aging, or certain illnesses and

medications, hearing aids are the best way

to preserve your good hearing.

The great news about today’s hearing

aids is how small and easy to wear they

are. Modern digital hearing aids use

super-tiny microprocessor technology–

making them virtually invisible when

worn. Hearing aids can help almost all

degrees of hearing loss–from a little to a

lot. and, by stimulating your brain with

sound that might not otherwise reach it,

hearing aids help keep your brain active,

which lowers your risk for cognitive

diseases, such as dementia.

if you suspect you may have hearing

loss, don’t ignore it. neglecting a hearing

loss can have a snowball effect–making it

grow bigger, faster than necessary.

Here are 10 ways you can limit hearing

damage and preserve good hearing:

1. Understand the sound levels of the

noises in your environment.

2. Learn about proper ear protection.

There are many kinds on the market

today, ranging from custom ear molds to

foam plugs and more.

3. Put physical distance between you

and loud noise when it is present. if

possible, stand at an angle from the noise,

not directly in front of it.

4. Take breaks when you are exposed

to noise.

5. When listening to music through

headphones or earbuds, keep the volume

low-to-medium.

6. Know the signs of hearing loss, and

measure yourself against them.

7. schedule a baseline hearing

evaluation. Hearing loss is on the rise

among Baby Boomers and young people.

it’s never too early to get your hearing

checked, but don’t wait past age 50.

8. Have your hearing evaluated by a

professional licensed by your state.

9. if you have hearing loss caused by a

reversible condition, take steps to

correct it.

10. if any permanent hearing loss is

diagnosed, choose hearing aids to slow it

down, and preserve good hearing.

it’s never too early to get your

hearing checked, but don’t wait

past age 50.

Broken-hearted to leave

21 Highpeak Place, Halswell

Auction: June 9, 2016 (unless sold prior)

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 toilets | 2 living rooms |1 dining room | 2-car garage | 3 off-street parks | Listing #: BE192595

But it is time to make a change and

leave this spacious happy home

of many years. You won’t want to

miss out on this opportunity in the

boutique subdivision of Broken Run. The

cul-de-sac location is desirably tranquil, and

this immaculately presented home will be a

delight to view.

Step into the entrance way and then onto

the large well-appointed kitchen with quality

Smeg appliances and large oven. The dining

and family room are very spacious and have

vaulted ceilings. The separate formal lounge

with a cosy gas fire and family room have

bifold doors that open onto the manicured

garden, a wonderful prospect for summer

entertaining. The master bedroom also opens

as well to the garden - perhaps time for a

coffee and croissant in the morning before the

day begins? The ensuite is unusually large, a

rare find in modern homes, and the family

bathroom certainly does not lack in size as

well. Two further double bedrooms and a

large single will safely house the family and

guests.

The home is double glazed, fully insulated,

has two heat pumps, a gas fire and under floor

heating in the tiled kitchen and bathrooms.

A larger than normal double garage with

trailer door to the backyard completes the

deal in this very spacious home.

Don’t delay; this lovely home must be sold

on or before auction day to let my vendors

move on to the next stage of their life.
