Call to save boardwalk

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

SOUTH NEW Brighton

residents are furious at the lack

of action by the city council

to stop the estuary edge and

walkway eroding away.

They say action needs to be

taken quickly to save not only

the estuary edge that runs from

the end of Caspian St to Bridge

St, but also the walkway, off

Estuary Rd.

The walkway was built about

25 years ago, but now is warped

and twisted after being

damaged in the February 22,

2011 earthquake and a lack of

care, they say, from the city

council.

But the city council says it is

taking a “no regrets” approach

to the treatment of the estuary

edge.

Investigations had been delayed

because of the engineering

and funding problems, it said.

City council head of strategic

policy Helen Beaumont said it

needed to weigh the cost and

benefits of the potential solutions.

Natural dune systems and

planting, sea walls, stop banks

and pumping stations were potential

solutions, she said.

A report on what to do with

the boardwalk would be before

the Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board in September.

City councillor David East said

there was a number of environmental

reports that could have

been done, but “there were other

priorities”.

But community board member

Tim Sintes said the city

council response was not good

enough.

Residents want the same

amount of money spent on their

estuary edges as was spent at

Ferrymead and Redcliffs, he

said. About $5.3m was spent by

the city council to build a 500m

long sea wall in Redcliffs in 2014.

The annual plan has $337,000

earmarked for the boardwalk,

but it was unknown how much

was budgeted for the estuary.

Mr Sintes said: “It’s been left

to rack and ruin. It’s very disheartening

for those who come

over here after being in the Ferrymead

or Redcliffs area and see

how much money has been spent

on their sea walls, and they come

over here and they can’t see any

sea walls.”

South Brighton Motor Camp

resident Deidre McGowan said

the estuary edge and boardwalk

were popular and said it was

indicative to her of “how little

the city council cares”.

NEGLECT:

Deidre

McGowan and

Tim Sintes are

fed up with the

city council’s

inaction over

the South

New Brighton

boardwalk.

PEGASUS POST

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News............................3,5 & 17

IT IS a sad fact that bullying is

not only prevalent in schools, but

in many other facets of life. Vicki

Edwards-Brown is the driving

force behind Be The Change,

an anti-bullying programme

that started after she saw a lack

of empathy for those subjected

to schoolyard harassment. The

actress and singer talks about not

only the programme but her stint

on Shortland Street on page 6.

On page 17, reporter Donna

Miles talks to the Canterbury

Muslim Community Trust.

Though they do not suffer the

same levels of “islamophobia”

compared to the rest of the world,

there is still a way to go in understanding

the different cultures

of the 40 ethnic groups that

represent the Muslim community

in the city.

Have a good week.

East-siders looked down on

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

EASTERN suburbs teenagers

feel the rest of the city look

down on them due to where

they live and the schools they

go to.

That is the conclusion made

by 17-year-old Christchurch

East youth MP and Aranui

High School student, Bethany

Walters.

Bethany interviewed more

than 50 students from Aranui

High, Linwood College and

Mairehau High School for her

short film – Eastside Youth:

Our Voice.

She said that although

more than 70 per cent of the

students she interviewed liked

living in the east, the majority

feel they are looked down on

by the rest of the city because

of the school they attend, and

the suburbs they live in.

“The stigma and reputation

that people who don’t live

here give the east is not a true

representation,” she said.

Bethany said overwhelmingly

the students felt underappreciated

and left out of

decisions that will impact their

future.

“They said the east was

resilient . . . but felt like local

government and central

government weren’t engaging

youth in the process of recovery

in the east.”

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams said Bethany was “a

credit” to the community that

she is fighting for.

“She’s making sure the

voices in the east are heard.

She’s also making sure that

people on the other side of the

country know how the youth

on the east of Christchurch

feel.

“Youth often get left out

unless people are really intentional

about seeking their

voices. She’s doing a really

good thing, she’s showing that

everyone counts, especially

youth,” she said.

Aranui High principal

Maree Furness said the

film was a voice for eastern

Christchurch.

“ The youth that live here

have some amazing ideas,

so it would be great if their

opinions were really sought.

Particularly as some of their

decisions are impacting their

future,” she said.

BEHIND THE SCENES:

Bethany Walters’ film,

Eastside Youth: Our Voice,

depicts the concerns of

students in the eastern

suburbs.

FLYING FOX COMPLAINT

A childrens’ flying fox was taken down

in the Prestons’ subdivision last week

because it exceeded noise levels. City

councillor Glenn Livingstone said last

week that he would be working with the

Burwood-Pegasus Community Board to

find “a positive outcome” in the coming

weeks.

CONTAMINATED WATER

Banks Avenue School have tested its

water for cryptosporidium, a bug that

causes upset stomachs. The school said

it was notified last week that a pupil

had cryptosporidiosis, and had to be

kept away from school. The school also

said it had “several” pupils off school

with “tummy bugs” recently, so had

undertaken precautionary measures.

Playgrounds need to

be wheelchair-friendly

Shirley-Papanui

Community

Board member

Jo Byrne talks

about having

“wheelchairfriendly

surfaces” in

childrens’ playgrounds, so all

children have the chance to

play.

Many people know of my

interest in flooding issues in the

Flockton area.

However, many people don’t

realise that, as a part-time speech

language therapist working with

children and young people with

disabilities, I have also been

actively advocating for more inclusive

facilities in our ward.

The therapy team I work with

made an in-depth submission to

the Margaret Mahy family playground

team on making that play

area safe and accessible for people

with disabilities.

Overseas, many major cities are

developing all access play areas.

These are destination play areas

where children of all abilities can

play on the equipment.

This means children with disabilities

can play alongside their

siblings and friends. Children can

be side-by-side using different

swings, including basket swings

and platform swings.

Children using wheelchairs

are then not isolated in the

wheelchair swing in the corner of

a park.

Internationally there are now

play equipment manufacturers

which specialise in accessible play

grounds.

In Auckland an all abilities

playground has opened in Long

Bay.

Locally, it is fantastic to see the

Smile Dial Sensory Garden development

plans in Burwood.

The Shirley-Papanui Community

Board has been working for

more accessible play areas in our

ward, too.

As playgrounds in the ward

have come up for renewal, we

have supported city council staff

in coming up with play solutions

that work for as many children as

possible (while operating within

the proposed budget).

This means we have chosen

more wheelchair friendly surfaces,

and equipment that has

more options for less physically

able children.

Work has started in the Craighead

Reserve play area, and is

planned for the new The Groynes

play area.

The community board would

love a future Christchurch that

has play equipment across the

city for all our young people, so

they can play safely in their own

community and have the most

suitable resources available.

Another project the community

board has had input into is the

working party for the design of

the new St Albans Community

Centre.

The plans for the proposed centre

include an adult change bed,

and hopefully will also include a

ceiling hoist.

This means that adults with disabilities

who are unable to use the

usual disability toilet facilities can

still access their community and

not have to go home when they

need changing.

This would open the community

facility for use for a wider

range of community groups.

We all hope that when we look

at the future Christchurch that it

is truly accessible.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you

agree with Jo Byrne? What

parks can you think of that

specifically need to be upgraded

so that all children

can enjoy them? Email fraser.

FLAME FILES

GUTTED: A garage fire on Linwood Ave started when hot

ash was put in a bin.

Winter fire tips

• By Mark Thomas – Fire

Risk Management Officer

TWO PROPERTY fires, with all

the drama and heartache they

entail, occurred last week – the

result of very topical causes

reflecting the start of winter.

In the early hours of June 12,

a household in Parklands was

alerted by smoke alarms to the

fact the house was on fire.

That there were operating

smoke detectors saved a possible

tragedy, but the cause may have

been avoidable.

The origin of the fire was

traced to a clothes dryer that

had been started before the occupants

went to bed.

There’s two points here.

Firstly, it isn’t known whether

the lint filter had been cleared

recently.

If it hadn’t, and this should

be done every time the drier is

used, it is possible the contents

just got hotter and hotter to

PEGASUS POST

ignition temperature.

Secondly, the use of these

things should probably be restricted

to when you’re at home,

up and alert.

Then you can deal with

problems immediately as they

occur.

The other fire was a classic

winter event, where fire ash was

left against the side of a garage

in Linwood on June 14.

Ash is an excellent insulator.

Hot embers encased in the ash,

inside a bucket, will not cool

down for days.

In this case, heat transferred

through the ash, the side of the

bucket and the iron cladding of

the garage, igniting the wooden

framing.

It is recommended that five

days is the minimum time to

expect ash to completely cool.

That’s five days you must

keep the ash and bucket outside

and well away from anything

combustible.

New Brighton rugby stronger than ever

Glenn Matthews,

of New Brighton,

talks about the

community’s

winning attitude.

The culture that has been built

within the New Brighton Rugby

Club – especially after the

earthquakes, when some thought

the suburb would fade away –

was a big key to the club’s success

this season.

Previously

United Travel

The club created history when

the division 1 and 2 sides both

won their first round competitions

in the Hawkins Cup.

It is the first time that the club

has won both grades on the same

day.

The division 1 side went into

the final round level on points

with Lincoln University, who

were aiming to be the first club

to win the Hawkins Cup four

years in a row.

As expected, New Brighton

cruised past Belfast, running in

12 tries in a 72-12 win to secure

their 9th win in 11 matches,

while Lincoln University were

unable to earn a bonus point in

their 15-10 win over Sydenham.

Therefore, the trophy was

handed to the sea-siders for the

first time since 2010 when they

shared it with High School Old

Boys.

The division 2 side remained

unbeaten and hold a 14-point

lead with two rounds to play

after winning their 11th straight

match 49-19 against a tough

Sydenham side.

The closeness of the two sides

and communication between

the coaching staff and the senior

coaching staff, of Scott Pawson

and Troy Manaena, was responsible

for the win.

The senior side will now look

to win their first Hawkins Cup

since 2013. Meanwhile, the Division

2 side will be hoping to get

their name on it for the first time

since 2012.

Super-school recruiting

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

SUPER-SCHOOL in the

making, Haeata Community

Campus, will be looking to fill

more than 40 staffing positions

over the next two weekends.

The school, being built on the

site of Aranui High School, will

see the closure of Avondale Primary,

Wainoni, Aranui Primary

and Aranui High schools at the

end of the year.

Haeata principal Andy Kai

Fong said he was looking forward

to meeting the “shortlist”

of applicants for the more than

40 positions they are looking to

fill.

“We’re about to enter into

two big weekends of recruiting,

so we’re looking for more great

staff. We have up to about 45

positions to offer, and we’ve

had over 120 to 130 applicants.

So we’ve trimmed that to a

shortlist, but it’s still quite a long

shortlist,” he said.

Mr Kai Fong said he hopes

to meet each applicant on the

shortlist to make the strongest

staffing team possible, and

begin offering roles at the end of

term 2.

“We’ll go into these recruiting

weekends, and we will see at

STRONG TEAM: Haeata Community Campus principal Andy Kai Fong (far left) is looking to

the end of them, and make job

offers by the end of the term,”

he said.

Last week, Haeata announced

the appointment of Aranui

Primary’s deputy principal, Jess

Bijl-Kakoi, as the super-school’s

new diverse education leader.

Mr Kai Fong said Ms Bijl-

Kakoi will start with Haeata at

the beginning of the next term.

“With the Ministry’s model

of staffing, we get to appoint a

certain amount of staff in the

middle of the year.

We decided we could do with

some extra support of diverse

education, and celebrate the

kids coming from four different

schools . . . we’re excited to have

her expertise and enthusiasm on

board.

“Each school has students

that have shown home learning

is becoming difficult, and we

want to be able to support all of

them.” he said.

Wheelie bins

get ID tags

HAVE YOU ever wondered how

the city council keeps track of all

of its wheelie bins?

The city council will carry out

a stock take of kerbside wheelie

bins throughout the city, starting

next month. It is designed to

reduce the cost of the bin collection

service by removing lost,

damaged and stolen bins from

circulation.

The stock take is expected to

save ratepayers $9.3m over the

course of the city council’s contract

with Waste Management

NZ, which runs until 2029.

It will reduce the cost of

collecting bins by $13.8m, but

the stock take will cost the city

council $4.5m.

City council’s solid waste manager

Ross Trotter said bins will

be fitted with radio frequency

tags to ensure damaged, stolen or

lost bins can be easily identified.

“The radio frequency chips

can’t track the location of the

bins. They communicate with

the collection truck as it goes

past to ensure that the bin is located

near the correct property.

It is a short range signal,” he said.

They can then be checked

and matched to the database,

returned to their original property

or re-allocated for future

distribution.

Our People

Taking a stand against bullying

Burwood resident Vicki Edwards-Brown started the

charity Be The Change in 2011 to tackle the problem

of bullying and help support victims. She spoke to

reporter Tom Doudney about what inspired her to

set the charity up, her role on Shortland Street and

the freak spinal injury she suffered.

I heard that you were actually

bullied as an adult, is that

right? What role did that play

in starting Be The Change?

Yes, I was but it’s not the driving

force behind why I started

Be The Change. That driving

force was to do with my husband

working in a high school, seeing

the effect that bullying was

having on young people around

me, and just really having a

desperate need to help them and

massive empathy for them. I was

thinking that’s hard enough, and

then you have the earthquakes

to deal with as well, and we need

something in New Zealand to

empower young people to stand

up to bullying.

Yeah, I was bullied in the

workplace but I didn’t know it at

the time, so I guess it would have

been good to have tools and tips

to know that, actually, that’s not

okay.

Can you tell me more about

your background before

starting Be The Change?

My background is really in

the speaking side of it. When I

do the workshops and presentations,

that comes from an acting

background that I have. I have

been on Shortland Street and

other things when I was younger,

so that has drawn me to being

able to present to young people

and fit in.

When were you on Shortland

Street?

I was on in 2010. My husband

[Shaun Edwards-Brown] was actually

on for a whole year during

2009 and 2010 as well. He was a

pivotal character and I got a twomonth

contract as well, which

was really awesome.

What character did you play?

Her name was Jewel Fitzpatrick.

What was Jewel like?

She was actually an actress. I

was acting, playing an actress.

Who did your husband play

on Shortland Street?

He was Ben Goodall – a paramedic.

How did your tenure end

at Shortland Street? Did your

character get killed off or anything

like that?

No, some main characters did

a play and I was in that play, so

the play just ran its course and

that was it.

Did being on Shortland Street

open up any more doors for you

in terms of acting?

Yeah, we lived in Auckland

for six months and did some

ads and things like that. Then

ON SCREEN:

Vicki Edwards-

Brown played

the role of

actor Jewel

Fitzpatrick

on the long

running

soap opera,

Shortland

Street.

TAKING A STAND: Vicki Edwards-Brown started Be The

Change, a charity that aims to tackle bullying. ​

we came back to Christchurch,

I had major back surgery and

then, being stuck in bed for six

weeks while watching TV, I saw

something which inspired me to

create Be The Change.

What was it you saw on TV?

It was a programme about

a bully prevention charity in

America called Challenge Day

and I saw that and just thought

‘wow, that is really awesome’

and it just inspired me to do

something because we needed

something like that in New

Zealand.

You mentioned being in some

ads, what might we recognise

you from?

They’re pretty old now –

Vector’s fibre to the door was

one. I was just like standing at

a sink turning the tap on and

trying to get water through a

straw.

But predominately I used to

sing – I’d sing at Twiggers, at

Addington Raceway. We used to

sing every Friday and Saturday

with the band. So a lot of my

performing was theatrical with

singing in a band and stuff like

that. I had my own band called

V.I.P. I have also done about 20

shows through Showbiz over the

years.

What sort of music did you

sing with your band?

I love 80s. Anything from the

60s right through. It was all Top

of the Pops stuff that people like

to hear.

So, have you stopped playing

with bands now?

I do stuff with a group called

Chant et Danse, a Christchurch

entertainment group.

You also mentioned that you

had major back surgery, what

happened there?

It was a really freak accident.

Eleven years ago we were driving

along Moorhouse Ave and there

were high winds and a threestorey-high

tree broke off in the

wind just as we drove past and

the tree came through the roof

on to my head.

Oh my gosh!

I’m laughing now but it wasn’t

good at the time, and it literally

broke my back. I had two spinal

surgeries so I have got a titanium

back.

Do you feel good as new now?

No, I have chronic back pain

but I have just learned to live

with it and do the best I can

through exercise and being

healthy and that sort of thing,

and having a positive attitude

about everything – everything. If

you can think of something to be

grateful for in life, and literally I

think helping other people helps

me. If I can lie in bed at night

saying I have helped one person,

that makes me happy.

What sort of support do victims

of bullying need most? Is

it really just people being kind

to them?

That really is a huge part of

it, yes. It takes a community

to prevent bullying – not just

a school, or the person, or the

family. Schools are the ones that

are often blamed but they really

struggle with the resources and

it’s people like me who can help

them create positive cultures –

and I need funding! Funding

would enable me to give more resources

and help to more schools

in Christchurch.

But yeah, just being kind and

doing things like, for example,

setting up lunchtime events at

schools. We held an anonymous

appreciation day at Cashmere

High School, where we provided

kids with cards and they write

anonymously nice notes to other

people. We delivered 1200 notes

to teachers and students that day.

It was such a wonderful experience

and just set a positive buzz

around the school.

How do you think we should

view people who bully? Are

these bad people or should we

pity them, too?

I do believe that a bully generally

is someone who is doing that

because they are being bullied

themselves, so I do go the way

of feeling sorry for them and

empathising with their situation,

rather than telling them they’re

bad.

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

Junk food-free

HEALTHY SCHOOL: Kaylee Lochrie-Bennet (left), Sheldon

Lawson, and Willow Warwood-Manihera, from Bromley

School, with Barbara Crooks from Ferrymead Rotary, who

is helping them to become healthy heroes. The pupils

received juggling balls as a reward for completing the

first three weeks of the Rotary Healthy Heroes Challenge.

To complete the challenge, each day for nine weeks

the pupils had to exercise for at least 30 minutes. This

included walking or swimming. They also had to eat three

vegetables, two pieces of fruit and get eight to 10 hours

sleep each night. They had to read, listen to music, and try

art. And they also had to help others at home, at school and

in the community. Mrs Crooks said that it was a delight to

see the children all involved in the programme.

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

CHISNALLWOOD Intermediate

has decided to go junk-food free

this month.

The school has joined more

than 10,000 Kiwis signed up to

fight cancer through Junk-Free

June.

Last week, the school held

a community viewing of 2014

documentary, That Sugar Film,

as part of Junk-Free June, and

asked parents to donate $1 for the

screening.

Chisnallwood physical education

teacher Dan Vann said at the

screening, there was lots of fun

activities for the kids to do, as

well as healthy treats.

“There was lots of food that was

prepared in a healthy way. Things

like smoothies, toasties, and there

was even a smoothie bike, where

kids jumped on and when they

pedalled, it blended the fruit,” he

said.

He said the aim of the screening

wasn’t only to raise money

for Junk-Free June, but to raise

parents’ awareness of healthy

foods, and hidden sugar in foods

that kids eat.

“Most of the staff are on board.

They’ve signed up, but the main

thing is trying to educate the kids

. . . there’s a big misconception

HEALTHY TREAT: Chisnallwood Intermediate pupils sold fruit

salad as part of their Junk-Free June celebrations.

that only junk food is bad for

you,” Mr Vann said.

He said the school hopes to

raise about $1000 for Junk-Free

June, in which the idea is to go a

whole month without eating or

drinking sugar-filled food and

drink, while raising funds for

cancer research.

Mr Vann said it’s surprising

how much sugar is in normal

foods like Nutri-Grain and Up &

Go breakfast drinks.

“I’ve had a look at the average

lunchbox of the kids at school,

and I’ve kind of worked out their

average amount of sugar intake in

the day.

“Surprisingly there was an

average of about 62 teaspoons of

sugar in that average lunchbox,”

he said.

Mr Vann said he put the high

amount of sugar down to foods

that “you wouldn’t expect to have

sugar in”. Foods such as yoghurts,

breakfast cereals, muesli bars,

orange juice, and sauces.

NEW SILVERWARE: Trampoline champions Jacob McGraw, 9, (left) and

Ethan Field, 9, and talented gymnast Libby McDonald, 7, (right).

Gym champions

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

GYMNASTICS AND trampolining

pupils from Marshland School mixed

it up with the best in their age group

at a recent national competition.

Seven Marshland pupils attended

the 2016 Otago artistic qualifying

competition, a trampoline tournament,

and the Dunedin Gymnastic

Academy 1st junior competitions.

Seven-year-old Marshland gymnast,

Libby McDonald, won first place overall,

second in the floor section, and

second in the vault.

Her gym team also finished second

overall.

Principal Jacqui Pascoe said it had

been an “exciting weekend” for the

pupils.

“(It was) a very exciting weekend for

a number of our Marshland children.

In another competition, the Marshland

School Tramp Team did incredibly

well,” she said.

In the trampoline competition,

Jacob McGraw, 9, won the men’s

B grade; Ethan Field, 9, gained silver

in the men’s A grade; Isla Maclean, 9,

also gained silver in the women’s A

grade; Riley Field, 7, placed third in

the men’s C grade; Brooke Robertson,

6, was sixth in the women’s C grade;

and Milly Robertson competed for

the first time in women’s C grade.

Mrs Pascoe said the scores gave

Marshland a podium finish over the

weekend.

“With the top four scores combined,

the Marshland School team came in

second overall as well – outstanding,”

she said.

COMMUNITY HUB: Linwood College was the first school in Canterbury to host a

mobile well-being unit, used to help the community build a relationship with police.

It has been worked on for more than six months. Last week, the Linwood Well-being

Mobile Hub made its debut appearance. The aim of the mobile unit is prevention. It will

deliver important messages so every student and young person can reach their full

potential. Mayor Lianne Dalziel also attended the opening.

HELPING HANDS: Marshland School was

full of colour last week, when volunteers

planted a series of native flax in the

school. With the help of the local Bunnings

Warehouse Shirley on Wednesday, team

members laid coconut matting and planted

native flax plants in the water drains in front

of the re-located school. The flax, which

is one of New Zealand’s most distinctive

native plants,, is particularly popular with tui,

which feed on the nectar of its flowers.

Restoring estuaries

MORE THAN 200 tree

the Estuary Trust’s fourth

restoration project, which took

place in South New Brighton

Park.

After having established

successful community restoration

projects in Charlesworth

wetland, McCormacks Bay wetland

and Thistledown wetland

reserves, the trust took to South

New Brighton Park for another

major restoration project.

The Burwood-Pegasus Community

seedlings, which allowed a team

of volunteers to head for the park

to plant the seedlings near and

around the park’s play ground.

are about community involvement

as much as improving the

local landscape.

“Our restoration projects are

their local natural environment,”

she said.

She said local community

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | JUNE 2016

EQC begins settling ILV land damage claims

Head of Canterbury Land Settlement for EQC,

Keith Land

The Earthquake Commission has begun

settling claims for Increased Liquefaction

Vulnerability (ILV) land damage.

Keith Land, Head of Canterbury Land

Settlement, says that the settlements will go to

4,400 customers whose properties have

qualified as having an increased vulnerability to

liquefaction following the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes.

“Each qualified property is being assessed and

will be cash settled on a case-by-case basis as

we have done to date with other forms of land

damage resulting from these earthquakes.

Similar to Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV)

land damage, settlement of ILV land damage is

a world-first. This type of land damage has not

been covered by insurance anywhere else, so

Fulbright-EQC Award recipient to study

seismic performance of high-rise walls

The Fulbright-EQC Graduate Award’s newest recipient, Alex Shegay,

is looking into the reasons behind unexpected failures of reinforced

concrete walls and ways in which performance can be improved.

Mr Shegay, 24, has been granted the 2016 Fulbright-EQC Graduate

Award in Natural Disaster Research and soon will be heading to the

University of Washington on his exchange.

In the US, he will research the seismic performance of high-rise structural

walls and use experimental data to create validated computer models.

The research will go towards his PhD in Structural/Earthquake

Engineering at the University of Auckland.

“Structural engineers have significant social responsibility to protect

civilians even in the most devastating circumstances. The 2010/2011

Canterbury Earthquakes were an example of one such catastrophic event,

producing ground accelerations never before recorded in an urban

environment.

“Many concrete buildings in Christchurch that relied on reinforced

concrete walls for seismic resistance were severely damaged to the

point that it was fortunate to find them still standing. It’s crucial to learn

from the Canterbury earthquakes and improve building design and

construction practice.”

considerable work was required to get the

engineering and valuation methodologies

right,” said Mr Land.

“We want to make sure that the final settlements

are based on a robust and appropriate

settlement process so that customers can have

confidence their claims for ILV land damage

have been paid consistently and fairly.”

EQC expects at least two thirds of ILV

customers will receive settlements based on

the reduction in their property’s market value

caused by ILV, also known as Diminution of

Value (DOV).

“This is because generally, there are no

available ground improvement methods to

address ILV damage on a property where

a house has remained in place since the

earthquakes,” says Mr Land.

The remaining third of ILV customers are being

assessed for a settlement based on the cost to

repair the ILV land damage. This will generally

be in situations where the house has already

been, or will be, rebuilt or removed due to the

earthquake damage.”

Customers receiving a ‘cost to repair’

settlement will be individually case-managed,

as the situation for each of them varies. Before

it can be confirmed that these customers will

receive a repair cost settlement, more

information is needed to understand their

property’s current situation.

Mr Land says that settlements for DOV

customers began this month and EQC also

started contacting repair cost customers.

EQC has resolved nearly 90% of properties

with land claims resulting from 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes, and expects to

resolve the remainder of the land programme

by the end of 2016.

EQC will also hold six ILV meetings from July to

November for customers whose settlements are

based on DOV. The purpose of the meetings is

for customers to ask questions and hear from

EQC and its valuers about what’s been involved

in ILV settlement decisions.

The Fulbright-EQC Graduate Award in Natural Disaster Research

facilitates research that reduces and prevents natural disaster damage.

It is part of $16 million granted by EQC each year to high quality research

that builds knowledge about New Zealand’s natural disasters.

Progress report

on EQC remedial

programme

The Earthquake Commission has received 8,337

remedial enquiries of which 2,211 have been resolved

as of 27 May 2016. This leaves 6,126 enquiries

remaining.

The amount recorded as being spent on remedial work to

May 2016 was $7,068,833. However it has not been possible

to separate out all remedial costs from other work streams.

The total cost of the remedial repairs will never be finally

known until we have resolved all the outstanding claims.

There are still a number of unknowns and it’s also too early

to say exactly what the final figure will be for the remedial

programme. However, EQC expects the final cost could be

in the region of $60 million to $70 million, which is covered

by our existing liability estimates. To put this estimate in

context it would account for less than 3% of the approximate

$2.5 billion cost of the Canterbury Home Repair Programme

to date.

The level of remedial work for the Canterbury Home

Repair Programme is well within industry norms for the

national construction sector.

EQC has prioritised first time repairs, although it has carried

out urgent remedial work for vulnerable customers or where

the work is needed to make a house safe, secure and/or

sanitary.

Now that EQC is down to the last of the first time repairs,

focus has increased on resolving remedials.

EQC is confident it has the processes and teams in place to

address the issues. EQC has been expanding the remedial

team since September 2015 and more staff are being added

as first time repairs near completion.

EQC does not have a projected date to stop receiving

remedial requests but will continue working with customers

until their claims are resolved.

One of the reasons for starting the Canterbury Home Repair

Programme was to ensure customers would have the

assurance that any issues with their earthquake repairs

would be addressed.

Currently around 100 remedial requests are being received

a week.

Customers can follow the progress of their

claim through a series of EQC letters with a tick

diagram. Each new tick means the customer

is closer to receiving their settlement.

Processing

starts for

Feb 2016

quakes

EQC aims to complete assessments

more quickly for the February 2016

Canterbury earthquake claims using

customer-provided information for

desk-based assessments.

Onsite assessment visits to customers’

properties will be the exception for cases

where there is extensive damage, claims

are complex or individual circumstances

require it. EQC claim managers have

been calling customers to get

information and documents – such as

specific damage measurements and

photos – before deciding whether a

phone or on-site assessment works best.

Claims processing is well underway

with over 685 claims paid so far out of

the total 13,134 received. Priority is

given to vulnerable customers, followed

by claims in the order in which they

were lodged.

“Customers who have had their claims

settled so far have told us that the new

approach is working better for them.

Before starting to settle claims, EQC

proactively talked with customers about

different ways of doing things, using

their feedback to design our approach

for this event,” says EQC Manager of

the February 2016 Event, Jayne Lapin.

“Most of the damage suffered is

cosmetic, so EQC won’t manage a repair

programme this time but, customers

who need assistance to organise repairs,

can contact our Community Contact

Team in Christchurch. The team has

strong links with support agencies who

can help. Call EQC on 0800 DAMAGE

(0800 326 243) to book an appointment

with the Community Contact Team, if

support is needed.

“For customers whose 2010/2011

Canterbury earthquake claims are still

open, EQC aims to resolve their February

2016 claim together with their

2010/2011 claims. We want to make

sure all outstanding issues for their

properties are on track for resolution by

the end of 2016,” Ms Lapin says.

At this stage, EQC expects to resolve

the majority of February 2016

earthquake claims by the end of

December 2016.

Menes’ honoured

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

TWO VOLUNTEERS that saved

Rawhiti Golf Club from closing

have been recognised at a recent

region-wide awards dinner.

Mene and Sally Mene attended

the Canterbury Golf Annual

Awards dinner, held recently

at Russley Golf Club, with the

mind-set of being the “small club

supporting the big boys”.

But, by the end of the night,

Mr and Mrs Mene were on stage,

being jointly presented the Volunteers

of the Year award.

About 175 people attended the

evening, which saw awards presented,

stories shared, and a talk

from guest speaker, Greg Turner.

“We received the award on Friday,

so we were celebrating at the

club on Sunday,” Mr Mene said.

He said there were so many

“great volunteers” as finalists, so

it came as a shock when they were

called up.

“I was quite surprised. Sally is

the club’s administrator, and I

volunteer a bit, but we were both

jointly recognised on the night.

It was very special, it’s a credit to

all the volunteers and to the club

itself, without them we wouldn’t

have been able to do this,” he said.

Mr Mene said that after it was

he gave a speech “on behalf of the

club and of eastern residents”.

He said his wife was the one

who dealt directly with the city

council, during the period of time

in 2014 when it was thought the

club would close.

“Sally was always involved with

the communications between the

club and the city council when we

were fighting to keep it. She really

showed off to the city council

what we had done to retain the

course,” he said.

A FORMER Shirley Boys’

High School head boy and dux

has continued along the highachieving

path by being named

Canterbury University’s top

law graduate.

Tim Bain was head boy at

Shirley Boys’ in 2009 and,

more recently, received a gold

medal in recognition of being

Canterbury’s top law graduate.

Shirley Boys’ headmaster

John Laurenson said Mr Bain

had always been a high-flyer

and noted that he joined

the school as the top academic

entrant back in 2005.

Not only this, but he was also

awarded five scholarships during

his time at Shirley Boys’.

One was for biology, which he

achieved in year 12.

Mr Laurenson said the

ACHIEVERS

Head of the class

granting of level 4 (university

level) scholarships are given

to the top one to two per cent

of students throughout New

Zealand.

Another of Mr Bain’s

successes was when he led the

debating team to victory in the

Press Cup Debating Challenge

in 2009.

Since then, Mr Bain has

completed LLB honours.

The top law graduate award

is not given out every year, and

is only awarded when a student

is considered to have achieved

the level of academic excellence

worthy of such recognition.

Mr Bain is currently working

in Wellington as a judge’s clerk

to chief justice Dame Sian Elias.

Mr Laurenson said he thought

Mr Bain would “end up in

politics”.

Reading to Dogs

Every Tuesday, 3.30-4.30pm

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. Over time,

the child’s reading ability and

self-confidence improves and

they begin to associate reading

with a pleasant experience.

Fighting prejudice

• By Donna Miles

BREAKING PREJUDICES: Nada Tawfeek and her mother

Dalia Mohamed are volunteers at the Islamic Women’s

Council New Zealand.

CLOSE TO 40 different ethnic

groups represent the Muslim

community in the city.

Community worker Dr

Husaini Hafiz said that the

city’s 3250 Muslims did not

suffer from the same levels of

Islamophobia experienced by

Muslims in Europe and the

United States, but racial and

religious prejudices can exist

everywhere.

Dr Hafiz said the Canterbury

Muslim Community

Trust is building cultural and

religious bridges by reaching

out to the city’s Muslims and

the wider non-Muslim community.

“We would like to ensure

that Christchurch remains a

good place to live for all, which

means taking steps to foster

better understanding between

different groups,” he said.

Dr Hafiz said many people

assumed that the Muslim community

in Christchurch was

homogenous with the same

cultural practices and religious

beliefs.

He said, in reality, the Muslim

community in Christchurch

was very diverse.

The trust’s outreach programmes

are run jointly with

the Islamic Women’s Council

New Zealand.

ICWNZ member Denise

Jeager said the inclusion

of Muslim women in the

outreach programme was essential

to show Muslim women

had a voice and they were willing

to exercise it.

ICWNZ volunteer Nada

Tawfeek said the outreach programme

was useful to bring

about more open-minded

views of Muslim women.

“Some people were surprised

to hear a girl in hijab speak

with a British accent,” she said.

Dr Hafiz said focus groups

run in Canterbury had

identified three common

concerns amongst Muslims in

Christchurch: leadership, communication

and lack of Islamic

knowledge.

One of the trust’s goals

was to address the need for

stronger communication channels

between Muslims and

non-Muslim communities.

Last July, the trust invited

students from New Zealand

Broadcasting School to join in

the breaking of fast at the Al-

Noor mosque in Christchurch.

The invitation was a followup

to an earlier educational

session where the students

were introduced to basic concepts

of Islam and the impact

of the media on Muslims.

This year a similar educational

session was offered to

student journalists at the University

of Canterbury and Ara

Institute of Canterbury.

Office of Ethnic Communities’

general manager, Maarten

Quivooy, said organisations

such as the Canterbury Muslim

Trust play a “vital role”

in educating and supporting

New Zealanders to embrace

and celebrate the benefits that

diversity brings to us all.”

Earthquake

amputee

given gift

THE LIONS Club of New Brighton

has presented a survivor of the

February 2011 earthquake with a

cheque for $500.

Stacey Herbert had both legs amputated

just below the hips after she was

crushed under a pile of concrete and

steel for eight hours in The Press building

in Cathedral Square on February

22, 2011.

After a long period of recovering, six

months ago she made contact with the

Hanger Clinic in Oklahoma, United

States.

The clinic specialises in creating

computerised legs, known as C-legs,

with unique sockets for amputees,

such as soldiers who lost limbs.

Travel, the prosthesis and rehabilitation

will cost in excess of $150,000

after ACC funded a knee prosthesis

only.

The process will take several

months. This time next year, she hopes

to be able to put on her C-legs, walk

through a mall and “blend in”.

Until she is independent again, she

is residing with her parents.

While many will acknowledge Ms

Herbert has been badly let down, it

would be a waste of valuable resources

to fight ACC.

Have you checked your

underfloor repairs?

This is the sort of ‘repair’ by both

EQC and insurers we are finding.

BIG Win: Carisbrook To’omalatai (left), Zeke Dyson (center), Oli Jager (right) with

the DCL Shield after defeating Lincoln University.

Bonus for New Brighton

• By Gordon Findlater

NEW BRIGHTON Club’s

Bernie Smith has ticked off

something from his bucket

list – playing against twotime

defending darts world

champion Gary Anderson.

Smith took on the eventual

winner of the event in

Friday night’s first round.

Smith was no match for

Anderson. Smith lost 6-2.

Smith’s performance was

THERE’S BEEN extra

reward for a trio of New

Brighton’s Hawkins Cup

winning squad.

Three players from the

club have been named in

Canterbury coach Scott

Robertson’s initial widertraining

squad for this

year’s national provincial

championship.

Open-side flanker Billy

Harmon, tight head prop

Oli Jager and utility prop

Carisbrook To’omalatai

will assemble with the rest

of the 28-man squad at the

end of the month to push

their case for selection in

this year’s NPC.

The three players come

from a range of different

backgrounds.

Carisbrook To’omalatai

moved to Christchurch

from Timaru three years

ago, he played his secondary

school rugby for

Roncalli College.

His father Stan played

hooker for Samoa at the

1991 Rugby World Cup.

He also represented

Otago, hence his son’s

name, Carisbrook.

The nod to his father’s

rugby career in

To’omalatai’s name doesn’t

end there. Gordon Hunter

coached Stan To’omalatai

during his time at Otago.

Carisbrook’s middle name

is Gordon.

Having made Canterbury’s

initial training

squad, the chances of

To’omalatai going on

to replicate his dad and

play provincial rugby in

New Zealand are looking

strong.

“It came as a bit of a

suprise, i never really

looked on the internet. I

got texts from mates saying

congratulations,” said

To’omalatai.

Oli Jager’s background

stretches to the other side

of the globe. Jager grew

up in Dublin, Ireland.

He played for Ireland at

school boy level, represting

his country in the

under-18 European championship.

Jager moved to

Christchurch three years

ago and is now in his

second season playing first

division metro rugby.

“I wanted to get a taste

of New Zealand rugby. I

came at the end of 2013 to

play for the colts and never

really left,” said Jager.

Billy Harmon has been a

mainstay at New Brighton,

making his way right

through the junior ranks

before playing at secondary

school level for St

Bede’s. He’s since returned

to his home club.

New Brighton recently

captured the Hawkins

Cup, winning the roundrobin

phase of the metro

competition.

It’s the first time they

have won the competition

since 2010.

“We did what we needed

to. The guys weren’t too

worried about the other

game. It’s pretty rare for

New Brighton to be winning

trophys, we’ve got

a good thing going and

were punching above our

weight,” said New Brighton

coach Scott Pawson.

The job isn’t over yet for

the club. Coach Scott Pawson’s

initial objective for

the season was to ensure

they finish in the top-six

after round-robin play,

qualifying for a crack at

the end of the year at the

Hawkins Trophy, which

they side last won in 2013.

Taking on the best

easily one of the best from

the Australasian contingent.

Smith’s three-dart

average of 83.83 was the

third best of the qualifiers.

He also hit two 180s, more

than any other Australasian

player.

On June 13, he claimed

the penultimate Australasian

qualifying spot,

assuring him a first-round

match against one of the

world’s top eight players.

Smith said he has always

wanted to play against

Anderson – and on

Thursday that became a

reality.

When the first round

was drawn. Gary Anderson’s

name was the first

to come out of the hat. An

Australasian qualifier was

then selected, and Smith’s

name was pulled out,

setting up the fairy tale

match.

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of dampness

in your house

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

the problems caused by rising damp and are there

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.

your free, no obligation quote and complimentary

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

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.

Ara nurses remain in demand

ExcEllEnt EmploymEnt prospects

and a variety of career options continues

to attract talented students to the world of

nursing.

cpIt), the institute’s nursing programme

is highly-regarded. In fact, 90% of nursing

graduates find employment after graduation

– that’s new Zealand’s highest nursing

graduate employment rate. Ara prides itself

on consistently reaching the top place.

So what makes Ara nursing graduates so

employable?

years of experience in delivering nursing

training, along with great facilities and

expert tutors, is the first key to success.

the health sector to ensure that the training

aligns with what is needed on the ground

in the region’s hospital wards, community

health centres and aged care facilities. Ara

continues to develop innovative work-based

training that help prepare graduate nurses

for the real world of work.

Executive Director of nursing at

canterbury District Health Board (cDHB)

mary Gordon says the sector is closely

involved with nursing training at Ara

providing clinical placements for nursing

students, employing new graduate nurses

across the canterbury health system,

supporting nurses to undertake graduate

and post graduate education. nurses within

the canterbury health system are very

committed to supporting the training and

development of Ara nursing students. “These

students are our future nursing workforce.

They will be our future nursing educators

and leaders who will be shaping the health

system for the future.”

Head of nursing at Ara, cathy Andrew,

says nursing training is aligned to industry

conditions and the demands of modern

nursing. “We have excellent relationships

with clinical agencies and work closely

together to provide learning experiences

that are positive for students. We are seen as

national leaders in innovative clinical models

of learning and regularly receive feedback

that our graduates are actively recruited by

employers throughout new Zealand.”

march 2016 graduates of the Ara Bachelor

of nursing programme achieved a 90.3%

employment rate. They are out there working

in the sector in a variety of roles across the

spectrum of nursing including hospital

wards, mental health, community health,

5 TIPS

for optimal NutritioN

The degree to which your body is

nourished with optimal nutritional choices

will have a profound effect on your overall

health and wellbeing. It will influence your

energy levels, your mental wellbeing, your

ability to burn fat, and the strength of your

immune system, among other things.

One of the most outstanding figures in the

history of medicine was the greek physician

hippocrates. he sums up the importance of

optimal nutrition choices in one line: “Let

food be thy medicine and medicine be thy

food.”

With winter upon us, now is a great

time to focus on increasing the number

of positive choices when it comes to

nourishing our bodies with great nutrition.

Base yOur nuTrITIOnaL regIme

arOund WhOLefOOds

Think nuts, seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables,

pulses and meat. make choices in these food

groups that are as close to the original food

as possible. This helps ensure the vitamins,

minerals and other nutrients

are still intact. for example, raw almonds

instead of roasted and/or salted ones.

ChOOse OrganIC

Organic farming places the utmost

importance on caring for the soil because it

forms the basis for health, for all life forms.

healthy soil encourages disease-resistant

plants, which then transfers to the animals

and people who consume those plants. By

choosing organic, you are opting for food

that has been grown without the use of

synthetic pesticides and without the routine

use of antibiotics.

drInk WaTer

your body can survive a surprisingly long

time without food, but it won’t last more

than a few days without water. Optimal

hydration is critical to ensure our muscles

and nerves function properly, and even mild

dehydration can lead to feelings of lethargy.

how much

to drink? The answer is quite simple – drink

until your wee is clear or almost clear. That’s

an easy way to measure whether you’re

getting enough.

Take TIme TO pLan and prepare

fOr eaTIng WeLL

It takes time and preparation to change your

habits. schedule out time to write shopping

lists, shop for food and prepare meals. plan

to eat before you shop to minimise the

chance of giving in to temptation foods –

or shop online to minimise even further.

make bulk meals to freeze for busy nights

and set aside time to prepare a packed

lunch the night before. keep useful kitchen

items in easy-to-reach places – for example,

put the blender on the bench rather than

in the cupboard so that healthy smoothie

preparation is quick and easy.

Change OnLy One smaLL ThIng

aT a TIme

you may feel overwhelmed by wondering

where to start improving your nutrition.

make one small, achievable change and once

that becomes a habit (something you can

do without a major effort), then focus on

something else. small changes are the key to

success. for example, instead of saying “I’m

only going to eat wholefoods from now on

and forever,” instead make your target more

realistic such as, “I’m going to increase to

eating at least four different vegetables per

day, on at least five days every week.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Olive Leaf Extract

Nature’s Extraordinary Immune Support

As fAr ago as 1927 Doctors used olive leaf

to reduce fevers and knock out malaria.

scientists have discovered olive leaf contains

powerful nutrients that directly interfere and

even destroy nearly every type of disease

causing micro-organisms including bacteria,

fungi, mould, parasites, viruses and even

yeast infections. As well as this olive leaf has

immune enhancing benefits by activating

immune cells that fight infection. for these

reasons it has become a popular tonic herb

that can be used to keep the immune system

strong as well as when need to dramatically

speed up recovery of conditions like colds

and flu, pneumonia, tuberculosis, herpes,

shingles, urinary infections, yeast infections,

and much more. It has also been found

beneficial for chronic fatigue syndrome,

low energy levels, exotic and deadly tropical

diseases, two types of leukaemia and even

some cancers. In many chronic health

conditions the immune system is run down

and it is easy to have complications that are

often life threatening. Olive leaf may be a

safe and very effective option to boost the

immune system and allow the body to have

more energy to help heal itself.

Olive leaf has also been found to be

an effective cardiovascular tonic helping

normalise high blood pressure, improve

cholesterol quality, improve heartbeat

It Is well known how important omega-3

fatty acids are to good health. It is

estimated most people don’t even get a

third of the recommended omega-3 fatty

acids on a weekly basis. Countries with a

higher amounts of omega-3 in their diet

are known to have lower cardiovascular

disease and, in many cases, better overall

health.

recent research has shown inflammation

to be a big part of disease and the ageing

process.

fish oil can help reduce inflammation by

providing essential fatty acids required

by the body to heal itself and maintain

good health. Until now most fish oil

only contained omega-3 fatty acids in

triglyceride form. fish, however, naturally

contain omega-3 in triglyceride and

phospholipid form but until recently the

phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC sets new

irregularities, and improve blood flow and

vascular disorders.

Olive leaf extract is so effective that too high

a dose initially may make you feel worse. This

is due to too many micro-organisms dying

quicker than the body can process these dead

organisms. This side effect can be minimized

if you follow our protocol on dosage. Also

drinking water and herbal teas especially

raspberry leaf can be quite effective. further

information on the amazing benefits of olive

leaf and how it can be effectively used is

available from our Medical Herbalist or our

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 110 seaview road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always

Happy to Help!

GO-Advanced Omega-PC

standards in fish oil as it contains

omega-3 attached to both triglycerides

and phospholipids. studies have shown

GO-Advanced Omega-PC to be far better

absorbed, leading to increased levels of

vital omega-3 fatty acids in the organs

through giving the potential for more

health benefits.

GO-Advanced Omega-PC is produced

from fresh wild deep sea cold water fish

using a new advanced and more natural

cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found

in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP

standards and is molecularly distilled to

remove any containments, toxins and

heavy metals.

further info on this revolutionary new

fish oil and its benefits is available from the

Natural Health Advisers, Naturopath and

Medical Herbalist at Marshall’s Health &

Natural Therapy in New Brighton, phone

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

preserves the natural nutrient profile

found in fish

• Naturally contains phospholipids to

support cellular health

• Contains vitamin D3 to support immune,

bone & cardiovascular health

• Supports cardiovascular health - Countries with
