Group receives $150,000

to repair church floor

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

AN earthquake-damaged

church in South New Brighton

can now be turned into a

community hub after more than

2000 people voted for it to get

vital repairs.

Over 18 months Te Waka

Aroha South Brighton, a

community organisation,

will turn the Bridge St Baptist

Church into not only a hub, but

also a cafe and performing arts

stage.

It was made possible after

it won a competition run by

SmartLift, a relevelling specialist

company, which is offering up

to $150,000 of repairs to the

church’s floor.

Te Waka Aroha won after

more than 2000 people voted

on Facebook for the group to

receive the money. It is based at

the South Brighton Community

Centre.

The church was closed after

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

For Te Waka Aroha volunteer

Jane Harrison it was a long night

on Tuesday as she watched the

votes. She fell asleep, before

learning the group had won.

“We received over 2200

votes for us, when there’s only

UPGRADE: The Bridge St Baptist Church will get a new floor thanks to SmartLift.

1500 households in South New

Brighton,” she said.

Mrs Harrison said without

the money, the project would be

“completely unrealistic.”

She said she knew the community

wanted them to win

when she looked at the number

of votes they received.

The next stage is to get working

on consents with the city

council, with an architect and

project manager already on

board, she said.

“We want to run pop-up

restaurants, cafes, make it

somewhere to get something to

eat and drink, have local bands

on the big stage, we could have

comedy nights and an open

mic night, and adult education

classes . . . the community has

100 ideas, we just needed a place

to do them,” she said.

News.......................................3-5

Today we celebrate those among

us who have achieved something

special. The Queen’s Birthday

Honours List has been released

and on it are a few familiar faces.

See the list on page 6.

Otautahi Creative Spaces Trust

manager Kim Morton is also

someone adding value to our

community. She made the shift

from training as a lawyer after the

February 22, 2011, earthquake to

using art as a therapy to reduce

social isolation. Read about her

in Our People.

Earlier this year people were divided

when the central city speed

limits were reduced to 30km/h.

Now the city council has released

a number of suburban streets

where the speed limits could

change. See what roads could be

affected on page 4.

Enjoy your week.

MOVING MISHAPS AT ECAN OFFICE

Moving can be a pain – but at least two

Environment Canterbury staff members

felt it more than most when the regional

council shifted into its new Tuam St

offices in April.

Within the first two weeks, one

person walked into the glass surround

of the revolving door on the ground

level, receiving a bruised temple

and a headache.

A second person walked into the glass

balustrade on the ground floor stairs

bruising their upper arm. Both were put

on light duties for two days.

ECan spokeswoman Katherine

Trought said moving 406 staff into a new

office building was a little like moving

into a new house, “where you bump

into things until you work out how to

navigate your way around.”

Boost for golf club

• Fraser Walker-Pearce

RAWHITI GOLF Club has

continued its amazing recovery

from almost being shut down by

the city council, by now being

invited to host an international

tournament.

The club received an email

recently proposing it be a host

course for the Christchurch

Casino Golden Oldies Sports

Celebration 2018, to be held in

the city.

Rawhiti Golf Club president

Mene Mene said the invitation

was a credit to the whole club.

“It’s quite exciting for the

club, things are looking up for

the east. After all the things

that we went through to save

the course, it’s now coming into

fruition. I’m just so proud of the

club, it is leading by example,”

he said.

Only a few years ago, the club

was on the brink of being shut

down by the city council, after

posting a loss of nearly $200,000

in 2014.

But, thanks to smart financing

by the club, it was given a 25-

year lease by the city council to

continue operating.

Christchurch manager for the

event, Mike Godinet said

a “blanket letter” was sent to

BIG CHANCE: Rawhiti Golf Club president Mene Mene

received an invitation for the club to be a host course for an

international tournament in 2018. ​

all golf courses in the city, but

they would only select the best

four.

“We have not made any decisions

yet as to who will host,

we’re speaking to them all.

Maybe half a dozen clubs have

returned the letter registering

their interest, for the tournament

in April 2018,” he said.

Mr Mene said the tournament

looks like it will be a big positive

for the club, if it is selected.

“It’s being held in Christchurch,

and I’ve heard there’s

about 500 golfers coming to the

city for (the tournament),” he

said.

Mr Godinet said the event

would draw thousands of visitors.

“We’re looking at a minimum

of 400 golfers, and probably

12,000 people coming to watch,”

he said.

Other courses in the east that

have been approached by Golden

Oldies, are Avondale, Waitikiri,

Christchurch, Waimairi Beach,

and Bottle Lake.

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON?: Father and son pair Oliver and

Grant Stewart got involved with the recent Be Bald or Be

Bold event. More than $10,000 was raised at the recent

hair-raising event at The Palms Shopping Centre. The money

raised will go towards funding University of Otago research

into the genetics behind cancer. A group of mothers set up

Research, Education and Awareness of Child Cancer and

Hematology, or REACH, after their own children were diagnosed

with cancer. The purpose of REACH is to raise funds

for more research that will improve treatments and increase

survival rates. REACH is calling for more research into targeted

treatments, and is currently working with Professor

Parry Guilford of Otago University.

Major speed limit changes proposed

• By Andrew King

SPEED LIMIT changes proposed

by the city council are trying

to find the balance between

pedestrians, cyclists and

motorists according to a traffic

expert.

Every three years, speed limits

on streets are reviewed, this year

27 have been proposed to have

lower limits installed.

In March the speed limit

for the heart of Christchurch’s

CBD was changed to 30km/h to

provide safer, more user-friendly

and enjoyable ways for people to

travel.

Canterbury University traffic

expert Alan Nicholson said while

he supports the proposed changes

in the city centre, the haste

they are being pushed through

could face a public backlash.

“It is great to find a balance

between pedestrians, cyclists and

motorists but if you push cars

out quickly from the city centre

people could get irritated and not

support it,” he said.

He was also concerned about

the drastic change to some speeds

on roads in the wards.

“Some of the speeds will go

from 100km/h to 50km/h.

They possibly should have been

changed in the past now they

have a drastic change,” he said.

Twelve roads in the Riccarton-

Waimairi Ward have been proposed

to have lower speed limits,

seven roads in the Fendalton-

Waimairi Ward,

four in the Shirley-Papanui

Ward, and one each in the

Burwood-Pegasus and Hagley-

Ferrymead Wards.

Some of the roads proposed

run between two wards and

have been counted twice such as

Pound Rd.

These are mainly in new

growth areas where the speed

limit of a once rural road is no

longer considered safe in expanding

residential and commercial

zones.

The city council is also proposing

to extend the inner-city

30km/h limit, which came into

effect on March 12, to include

sections of St Asaph St and

Hagley Ave.

Riccarton-Wigram Community

Board chairman Mike Mora

said lowering the speed limit on

those streets is what the public

wants.

“We welcome the triennial review

of speed limits. We have identified

some roads we think need

to be addressed, so have the public

and city council staff,” he said.

Following the consultation

process city council staff will

consider all feedback and

prepare a report for community

boards who will make a

recommendation to the city

council who makes the final

decision.

The speed limit changes

consultation runs from May 31

to June 21 on the city council’s

website under the Have Your Say

page.

FINDING THE BALANCE:

The city council is proposing

lower speed limits on roads

all around the city to make

it safer for all those who use

them. Inset: Alan Nicholson

Proposed road speed limit

changes by ward:

Riccarton-Wigram Ward

- Avonhead Rd, Carrs

Rd, Halswell Junction

Rd, Jessons Rd, Marshs

Rd, Murphys Rd, Owaka

Rd, Pound Rd, Quifes Rd,

Roberts Rd, Waterloo Rd,

Whincops Rd, Wigram Rd

and Wilmers Rd.

Engaging with young people

Canterbury Youth Workers

Collective co-ordinator

Penny Prescott says

for post-quake city to

involvement from young

people.

A couple of weeks ago I was one

of a handful of adults who got

to attend a UNICEF Youth For

Change Conference that was held

here in Christchurch.

A team of four young people

put this event together and there

were 70 other young people in

attendance.

including the Youth Advisory

Group for a collaboration project

I help out with called Child and

Youth Friendly Christchurch.

The YAG were there consulting

with the participants about what

they think it is that makes a city

youth-friendly.

An amazing example of young

people providing a space for

young people to consult with

other young people about things

important to them and our city.

It would be great to see more of

these events and more publicity

of these events so all young people

get a chance to attend.

There’s a group in Christchurch

called Youth Voice Canterbury

who are a network of young

people and youth participation

groups.

A few weeks ago they pulled

a diverse group of young people

together to chat with the city

council senior staff and elected

members about what’s important

for youth in our city.

It showed a real willingness by

the city council to engage with

young people, and those young

people felt listened to and valued.

Although this was well supported

by the city council, it was

pulled together and facilitated

by young people who wanted to

participate.

These sorts of opportunities are

• Fast Dryers

• Sports Gear

• Duvets

• Mink Blankets

• Bedding

• Washers

• Domestic Laundry

valuable both for the people making

decisions about Christchurch,

but also for the positive development

of our young people.

At the moment Youth Voice

Canterbury are organising the

first Canterbury Youth Awards.

Nominations closed earlier in

the week with 81 nominations

being received.

The idea is to create a culture of

celebrating young people.

I think it would be fantastic

to see this event and others like

it promoted positively in media

outlets for both the public and

the youth of Christchurch.

I understand that there are real

issues for young people in our

communities, and these need to

be discussed and addressed. But

what I want is for us to ensure

that we’re spending just as much

energy giving our young people

opportunities and celebrating

their successes, because the

youth are the future of this city.

If we want to see our great city

continue to grow and to thrive

post-quake, then we need to have

involvement from those who will

be there to grow it.

Fantastic Home Show returns

THERE IS less than a month to

go until the doors open on the

The Star Home & Leisure Show.

More than 12,000 people

visited the show last year, which

runs over Friday, Saturday and

Sunday, July 1 to 3.

The show features the latest

trends and technology for home

building or renovation, as well

as special deals on everything

from spa pools to campervans.

You can talk directly with the

experts there to get advice or

tips, or take the opportunity to

try new products or technology.

There will also be plenty of

prizes on offer, including a

thanks to Central Heating NZ.

•The show will be held at

SHOW

HAVING A remote control

home is no longer the stuff of

science fiction.

If you have the technology,

you can now turn your heating

on while you’re on your way

home, set a crock-pot to start

your dinner cooking, and check

up instantly on your home if a

security or fire alarm goes off to

see if it’s a danger or just a false

alarm.

Although the technology has

existed for several years, it has

been expensive and complicated

to install.

Startup company Morepork’s

goal is to make the technology

accessible to anyone.

Chief executive Gemma

Croombs said its systems could

be installed simply yourself,

with simple plug in cameras

and control panels and wireless

alarms and sensors.

“People have the perception

IN YOUR HAND: Chief executive Gemma Croombs using

the Morepork app, which allows you to remotely control

your security system and home automation technology. ​

you can only have them if

you’re building and you can put

cable all through your home,

but it doesn’t have to be like that

anymore.”

The company, which was

backed by Spark, launched in

August last year, but she said

the technology was already

growing.

“One of the things we’re testing

at the moment is a smart

door bell which sets up voice

call, so if someone’s there to

drop off a package you can say

just drop off, don’t leave me to

pick it up from the depot on my

weekend. Or if you have a smart

lock, you can just remotely open

the door and let them in.”

As new technology was developed,

she said it could be added

on to the same system.

She plans to be at The Star

Home & Leisure Show with her

team, with several systems set

up for people to play with there,

and special deals on offer.

In Brief

QE II DECISION

After a city council hearings panel

recommended the sale of 11.5ha

of QE II Park to the Ministry of

Education, a community group is

considering their options to put

a stop to the sale. Christchurch

Concerned Citizens chairman

Garry House said the group is

not pleased the city council plan

to go ahead with the sale, in spite

of “overwhelming evidence” that

the land was meant to be used to

be used for recreation, and not

education.

BURGLARIES SPIKE

A large rise in the number of

burglaries and family harm

incidents has been seen by police

around the Aranui and Wainoni

areas. New Brighton police station

Sergeant Dave Robertson said it

is unusual to have the amount

of burglaries that are currently

being seen, at this time of year. He

said burglaries and family harm

incidents generally spike in July

and August.

Queen’s Birthday honours List

PEGASUS POST

Star Media chairman receives honour

• By Gabrielle Stuart

STAR MEDIA chairman Nick

Smith has been recognised in

the Queen’s Birthday Honours

for more than 50 years work in

media and sport.

He was named an officer of

the New Zealand Order of Merit

yesterday.

Mr Smith started work at the

Christchurch Star in 1965, as an

advertising cadet.

“It was the heyday of newspapers.

You weren’t competing for eyeballs.

I spent two and a half years there,

and it was fantastic. I still have a

lot of friends from those days, we

had a lot of fun together. We used

to have boxing tournaments in the

lunchroom,” he said.

He went on to become a director

of Allied Press, publisher

of the Otago Daily Times, and

chairman of CTV.

Although he was a major

shareholder, he said he stayed

in the background at CTV

for several years, leaving the

running of the company to

managing director Murray

Wood.

But when Mr Wood was killed

in the collapse of the building in

the February 2011 earthquake,

Mr Smith said he was suddenly

thrust into management of the

station.

He remembered the first meeting

the day after the earthquake,

sitting in a dark room without

power talking about the future

with his distraught staff.

“It would have made more

sense to take the insurance

money and close the station, but

to me that would mean we let the

staff and the victims’ families

down. That to me was the deciding

factor.”

He has also played a key

role in sport over the years,

helping to develop Hagley

Park, form the University Oval

Redevelopment Trust and raise

$2 million to establish the first

cricket ground in Dunedin.

He has also sponsored and

donated to many community

groups and organisations

working around the South

Island.

Our People

Kim Morton

Putting energy into creative projects

Otautahi Creative

Spaces Trust manager

Kim Morton talks to

Fraser Walker-Pearce

about reducing social

isolation through art,

training as a lawyer and

her favourite place in

the city

Kim, tell me a bit about

what you do for the Otautahi

Creative Spaces Trust.

I guess I lead the programme

and we run art programmes. At

the moment we run at Phillipstown

and Aranui Libraries but

we are looking to expand across

the city into other community

hubs. Our mission is using art to

boost people’s wellbeing. We’re

especially looking to work with

people that have experienced

mental illness, earthquake

trauma and social isolation. We

provide opportunities for people

to connect with their community

as well.

How long has it been running?

It’s been going for just over a

year now, but we had a low profile

for our first six months. But

since the start of the year we’ve

had quite a surge of interest in

our programmes. We’re very

excited because it means we need

to expand them now, and we’re

looking for support to do that.

Where is the programme

based?

The base is Phillipstown

Community Hub, in the old Phillipstown

School, which closed at

the end of 2014. We’re here along

with a whole lot of other fantastic

community initiatives. Aranui

also presents a great opportunity

because the team there is really

passionate about serving their

community. We know libraries are

the living room of communities

and people go there because they

feel welcome and it’s a free space.

And the feedback you’ve

received has been positive?

The feedback has been fantastic.

What people love is that it’s participant

driven, so artists choose

the art forms they’re interested

in, and they do that. The environment

they’re in is without any

pressure to produce, just heaps of

encouragement. People have said

it’s a really inspiring environment

to be in. It’s not a structured class

as such, anyone could be working

on anything – like sculptures,

printmaking, and calligraphy.

Sometimes the participants will

need encouragement and suggestions,

but most people settle

in to what they want to be doing.

If someone’s stuck we help them

though.

Has the programme been successful

for the artists?

Some people have come in and

worked in this space, and they’ve

had work feature in national

exhibitions. We’ve had three

people gain scholarships through

The Learning Connexion but

also people are feeling like they

have a sense of belonging to

something creative and belonging

to a new community. They’ve

said they’ve made friends. And

from that they’re more engaged

in their community.

Has this project been set up

by the city council, or independently?

It’s an independent community

charitable trust. We have

had great support from Creative

New Zealand, the city council

and the Rata Foundation. Not

only that but we are finding that

we are being given a lot of support

in terms of art materials,

which is a fabulous endorsement

for the trust.

How full are your classes?

Funny you should say that actually,

we have a waiting list for

the Phillipstown groups. There’s

currently a lot of work being

done looking at whether a community

hub could be set up in

the closed Central New Brighton

School, and we’re hoping we

might be able to share a space in

that facility.

So how did this all come

about?

About 20 years ago I managed

a community art space in

Masterton and I’d been aware

of the gap in Christchurch for

some time, but it was only after

the earthquakes that it kind of

galvanised my energy and so I

decided to kick-start something

here. There’s a network of spaces

like this around the country, so

I had good relationships with

EXCITED:

is the

manager

of Otautahi

Creative

Spaces

Trust, and

teaches

classes.

the people involved there and

then we did some research which

was funded by Creative New

Zealand, and it looked at the

need and how something should

be set up here. It’s not something

you can just transplant from one

city to the other, Masterton is a

small town. In post-earthquake

Christchurch, opportunities to

connect with others creatively in

your local community seemed

more important.

How long have you been in

Christchurch then?

I’ve been here for 15 years,

and was in Masterton before, for

about three years, but I was born

in Auckland. I’ve lived in lots of

different places, but Christchurch

is home now.

Oh good to hear! Where are

your favourite spots?

My favourite in Christchurch

is Taylors Mistake. But in New

Zealand, it’d be the Cavalli

Islands in Northland.

Do you have any family down

here?

I have two boys, who are 17

and 13. They keep me on my

toes. They’re both at Hagley

Community College, and they’re

enjoying that. I’m not sure what

they want to do, but as long as

they do what they’re passionate

about, I’m good with that.

And where in the city are you

guys based?

We’re in Lyttelton. The kids

love it because of the hills and

the sea, and the great landscape.

That’s a bit of a trek to work

each day?

Yes that’s a point, I don’t live in

the communities I’m working in.

That means that it’s even more

important to have a strong relationship

with the community.

We’ve designed some projects

that are around the identity and

stories of Phillipstown – photography

and poetry projects that

combine with Ara Institute of

Canterbury, and local residents,

and what Phillipstown means for

them. That’s only just started.

Where did you go to school

then?

I went to school in Auckland,

to Westlake Girls’ High School.

It was just the one up the road

from where we lived at the time.

Did you ever have a mentor,

or a big influence that taught

you art?

Some people do have an outstanding

person in their life, but

this is hard for me. I guess mine

was Sue McBride, who was an

outstanding art teacher. I really

enjoyed art at school because of

her, so that probably did sow the

seed.

What did you do after that?

I’ve had quite a few different

aspects of my work. One is in

law, I trained for law, and didn’t

know if I’d take it further after I

studied it. I specialised in social

justice and community law. And

in a way there’s quite a connection

between those studies and

what I do now.

And did you use the degree?

Did you have any law jobs?

Yes, I did. I guess it must have

been 20 years on and off using

it. The earthquakes made me

question what I was doing, and

I decided to put my energy into

creativity and wellbeing projects.

Life’s short, if I can make a difference,

then I should. And for me

it was around this idea of art and

creativity in Christchurch that

was the best way I could do that.

SCHOOLS

HELPING HANDS: Pupils

from Waitakiri Primary

School took a more handson

approach to learning

about whitebait spawn

recently. The pupils helped

scientific EOS Ecology’s

Brennan monitor the

the Kate Shepherd site,

just off Anzac Drive. They

helped check the whitebaits’

habitats, and tagged where

they found them.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Effective treatment

for many types of pain

Complementary medicine is

becoming increasingly sought

after in New Zealand as people

become aware of the many

different methods of treating pain and ill

health that are available here.

Christchurch-based Chinese health

practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a

method of treatment, which she says has

as an immediate affect on a wide variety of

pains and health conditions. It is known

as ‘acupuncture without needles’.

Lan describes it as being similar to

reflexology in that the problem area on

the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

Trained as a medical practitioner in

China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992

and began practising acupuncture in

1995. From that discipline she created her

acupuncture without needles, and uses

it to treat people of all ages with many

different types of pain in all parts of the

body. This can include arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury.

“For example, the treatment has been

very successful for people who have

painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan

says.

Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels,

she says.

“As people age their energy is reduced,

and this can lead to other health

problems. The acupuncture without

needles treatment is like the body’s

battery being charged up again, so their

energy levels are restored, which in turn

helps overcome their health problems.”

Lan also uses it to treat depression

and anxiety, and says it can help with

addiction problems as well.

“After the treatment the person has no

cravings – because it treats the cause of

the addiction.”

She says the results are immediate,

though people may need several

treatments, depending on the extent

of their health problem, and while it

is slightly painful for few moments,

everyone can tolerate it.

Lan Xiao’s website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes

videos of people whose health problems

have been overcome after receiving the

treatment.

Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers

Arms Road, and her hours are Monday,

Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm. To discuss your health issues or

make an appointment, phone 323 4168

or 027 231 8388.

being charged huge amounts for servicing

and all they are getting is a heat pump clean.

We at enviro Master, are qualified engineers

and therefore are able to fully test and

diagnose any problems you may or may not

be aware of with your heat pump. Also, as

we are associated with all major brands, we

are able to repair these under warranty if

they are still within the warranty period.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

To enSure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required air exchange for your building

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

noW WITH the colder and wetter weather on its

way, home owners are focusing on ways to make

their homes comfortable, warm and healthy for

their families throughout winter. rISIng DAMP

is an issue that affects many of our older properties

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation. In

Canterbury especially, post-quake, many people

have relocated to homes that suffer from rising

damp which can be associated with health

problems. Independent tests have shown that

up to 40 litres of water can rise from the ground

and enter a house every day, leading to mildew,

mould, condensation and musty smells. Moulds

can produce various allergic reactions and the frail,

elderly and very young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally

owned and operated firm. The team understands

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

to help. They will come to your damp home and

pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete under

your timber floored home. Specially adapted for

our new Zealand conditions and applications

it provides a layer of protection against rising

moisture. An unexpected benefit that the team at

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed recently,

is that many owners of properties which had

underfloor foam concrete installed, reported that it

also provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

GENEROUS: Ferrymead Rotary donated dictionaries to Bromley School

pupils recently to help them with their English. Room 10 pupil Grace said the

dictionaries were “so cool”. “They are so easy to use at home – I love it.” Each

room 10 pupil got their own dictionary to take home with them. Heather Fear,

of Ferrymead Rotary, said the club was thrilled the children were enjoying the

dictionaries. “It is evident that the children really enjoy these books – maybe

they are the only books they have at home. Some schools use them as a class

set and, at the end of the year, the children have them to keep.” Ferrymead

Rotary has given dictionaries to several schools in the area so the children each

have a copy of their own. The cost of the dictionaries is subsidised by the Bill

and Lorna Boyd Charitable Trust and the Lois Dalley Trust.

Time Honoured

Remedy

According to a country doctor

“d.c. Jarvis” from Vermont in the

USA cider vinegar and honey (cV

& H) can be an important part

of a long healthy life. dr. Jarvis

noted Vermonters who regularly

consumed cider vinegar and honey

had excellent health with many

putting in a vigorous day’s work on

the farm even when well into their

eighties.

dr. Jarvis found the effects

of cider vinegar and honey on

arthritis can be remarkable with

many patients reporting almost

total relief after taking a course

of the cider vinegar and honey.

dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid

and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and

helped the body control calcium use.

As well as a general tonic dr.

Jarvis found regular administration

of cider vinegar and honey at the

onset of complaints such as the

common cold, sinusitis, asthmatic

attacks, hay fever, and childhood

diseases such as chicken pox and

measles, was accompanied by an

improvement in the condition with

symptoms either disappearing, or

the conditions were extremely mild

and soon over.

Apple cider vinegar contains

all the goodness of the apple in a

form that is readily accepted by

the body. Scientists have found

over 90 different substances in

AcV, among them 20 important

trace elements, minerals, essential

enzymes, a number of different

acids including malic acid, amino

acids and roughage in the form

of potash and pectin. A scientific

study at the Shizuka University

in Japan has proven AcV to have

potent antioxidant benefits (it can

destroy free radicals, which are a

major factor in ageing.) and also the

AcV can break down cholesterol

formations in the blood vessels.

AcV and H is a powerful tonic

that also promotes digestion,

assimilation of nutrients and

elimination of waste, and helps

neutralize any toxic substances that

enter the body.

it is important to note not

all cider vinegar is made in the

traditional way and results are likely

to prove disappointing with these

other vinegars.

Complementary therapies

and products

coMPLeMentAry Medicine includes treatments and products

that are not traditionally used in conventional medicine. They

range from ancient systems such as traditional chinese medicine

to treatments such as massage, acupuncture, herbal medicine

and aromatherapy. They emphasise a ‘wellness’ that comes from a

balance between the body and mind. The gap between conventional

medicine and complementary is starting to blur.

Before starting any treatment or product it is important to check

what evidence is available to suggest that it may work for you. Many

treatments are beginning to be backed up by scientific evidence.

However, for many others it is still unclear whether they are truly

effective, harmful or a waste of time and money.

Some supplements that may be beneficial for you:

Avocado, soybean, calcium & vitamin d, capsicum, folic acid, fish

oil, glucosamine & chondroitin and cherries.

Herbs can also be beneficial e.g. boswellia can be beneficial for

those with osteoarthritis. you may also consider tai chi, yoga and

relaxation techniques.

if you try complementary medicine treatment it is important

to discuss with your medical practitioner about any possible

interactions of the product with your current medical treatment.

Keep in mind that natural does not necessarily mean safe and

always tell your doctor of all the remedies you take.

Haeata Community Campus Update June 2016

What’s inside

Bringing Haeata to life

A parent’s perspective

Our future students

Community events

Contact information

Why choose Haeata?

The future is bright in the East

When I first saw the

advertisement for the role

of Haeata Community

Campus Principal, I thought

it was the most exciting

educational opportunity

I had seen for some time.

The chance to create and build a new

school is rare. At the time I was working

as the Head of Secondary at Hong Kong’s

Discovery College and prior to that I held

Principal and Deputy Principal roles at

Hornby and Lincoln High Schools. Haeata

Community Campus will open its doors in

term one of 2017 for students from years 1-13.

The brand new school is currently being

built on the Aranui High School site.

The campus will combine pupils from the

four schools that are closing in eastern

Christchurch – Aranui Primary, Wainoni

Primary, Avondale Primary and Aranui High

School – as well as welcoming new students

from the local community.

It’s really important that we capture the

essence of what has worked well at the four

schools that are closing and apply it in the

new campus.

Families can be confident that their children

will have access to quality and innovative

education that provides a strong foundation

for their future.

Having students from years 1-13 allows

us to build strong connections between

the school, students and whānau.

We are fortunate to be in state-of-theart

facilities which will provide amazing

opportunities for all students and

community groups.

We will be engaging face-to-face with our

community regularly, beginning this month,

to discuss our plans, seek feedback and

answer questions you may have.

Along with our leadership team and

Board of Trustees, I look forward to

welcoming our first students in 2017.

This is an exciting time for the East

– join us!

Haeata Community Campus Update June 2016

Michelle Mahuika with her daughters Manaia Mahuika-

Davies (13) and Kaea Mahuika-Davies (4), who are both

attending Haeata Community Campus in 2017.

A parent’s

perspective

Artists impression of a completed Haeata Community Campus building.

Bringing Haeata to life

Experience, passion and local knowledge are key attributes of Haeata’s Senior Leadership

Team, made up of five teachers who will play a big part in getting the school ready for 2017.

Principal of Haeata Community

Campus Andy Kai Fong is joined by

Paul Osborne, a senior leader and Head

of Department in Mathematics at Aranui

High, the principal of Te Karaka Area

School Karyn Gray, the deputy principal

of Bromley School Rebecca Wilson and

Melanie Taite-Pitama, a Ministry of

Education and Maori education leader.

Paul Osborne says he is relishing

the chance to help make Haeata

Community Campus the school of

choice for the East of Christchurch.

“There is already a strong sense of

direction for the new school, and

I’m looking forward to being part of

the group bringing Haeata to life,”

he says.

Te Karaka principal Karyn Gray

has moved from Gisborne to join the

new team. “Haeata Community Campus

is an exciting educational opportunity,”

she says. “I’m looking forward to

working closely with the Aranui

community to ensure we meet

their ambitions and goals.”

For Rebecca Wilson, innovation and

endless opportunities are key elements

in her move to Haeata Community

Campus. “I’m passionate about the

East,” she says. “After 13 years at

Bromley, I see this as a wonderful

chance to make a contribution to

successful educational outcomes for

our pupils. I want to get the community

excited about the endless opportunities

for their children.”

Melanie Taite-Pitama, the new director

of learning at Haeata Community

Campus, is looking forward to applying

her past experience as deputy principal

at Tuahiwi School, and most recently

with the Ministry of Education.

“Haeata Community Campus is

something new in terms of transforming

education. That’s where I like to be -

right in that mix of making a difference,

leaving a legacy and making change,”

Melanie says. “I’m looking forward to

the opportunity to build something

that no-one else is doing.”

Leadership Team – left to right:

Principal Andy Kai Fong, Karyn Gray

and Paul Osborne.

Passionate teachers, a new

approach to learning and a

cutting-edge environment

are among the reasons why

Michelle Mahuika and her

children are choosing

Haeata Community Campus.

Michelle’s two daughters, Manaia, 13,

and Kaea, 4, will be among the first

students attending Haeata when it opens

in 2017. Manaia is currently at Avonside

Girls High School and Kaea is attending

E Tipu e Rea on the current Aranui High

School site. Kaea will be five in July but

Michelle, an early childhood teacher, has

decided to wait until Haeata opens before

sending her to school.

“The endless opportunities that Haeata

presents made the decision an easy one,

and Kaea is so excited about going,” says

Michelle, who lives in New Brighton with

the girls and her husband Daniel Davies.

“She can see the school being built

from where she attends preschool, and

is constantly watching the video on the

website. It is exciting for us just to listen to

her and I know that she will thrive there.”

Michelle’s older daughter Manaia made

the decision herself to attend Haeata.

“The opportunity to be part of something

new and exciting played a big part, and

the fact she can really delve into subjects

that interest her due to Haeata’s selfdirected

learning approach made it very

appealing,” says Michelle.

“The big thing for us, from a parent’s

perspective, is knowing that Haeata will

have really passionate and enthusiastic

teachers on board who will support and

encourage our girls’ education.”

Well-being

Our students will be supported as

they move from one year level to

another. A family of teachers will

care for them throughout their

school journey.

Community first

We are proud that our community

has been at the heart of every

decision we have made. We will

continue to engage with our local

communities including

Ngāi Tūāhuriri, Mātāwaka

and Pasifika groups.

Great teachers

We are privileged to be able

to invite teachers to join

us from New Zealand and

abroad who are passionate

and share our vision.

Success

for all

All students at Haeata have the right to

be successful. We will be flexible with our

timetable or academic delivery if it will

enhance learning, improve students’

well-being and lead to greater opportunities.

Students

heart of

International

connections

We will partner with local, national and

international companies, businesses,

schools and universities to share ideas

and learn from global leaders.

Technology-rich

Strong focus on technology and

innovative teaching methods delivered

within state-of-the-art facilities.

Safe environment

Because we are brand new, our campus

has been built to the highest standards

which means it is very safe.
