Call for new

bus stops

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

LINWOOD residents are

angry that two major bus

stops in their area have

been overlooked while

others around the city are

being upgraded.

Bus patrons are keen to

see the stops receive the

same upgrades as those

at Westfield Riccarton

and Northlands Shopping

Centre.

A city council spokeswoman

said the Buckleys

Rd bus stops, outside

Eastgate Shopping Centre,

were the fourth most used

in the city in terms of

passengers boarding and

departing buses, between

The three most popular

the Riccarton

Northlands’ hub, she said.

Bus user Chris Minogue

said he wanted to see a

Northlands-style bus

shelter installed at the

stop across the road from

Eastgate.

“It needs to be longer,

sheltered, and without

glass that can be broken.

There’s no point in having

glass windows because

they’re broken every time I

Sara Templeton

said a bus stop with so

much use should be high

on the city council’s priorities

for an upgrade.

“We’ve asked the new

the city council to look at

all options for putting in a

covered, integrated bus hub

in the area. There’s a nice

one at both Riccarton and

Northlands, and we want

the same here,” she said.

Mrs Templeton agreed

with Mayor Lianne

Community centre stalled

• By Siobhan Watson and

Andrew King

THE NEW Shirley

Community Centre will not

receive funding from a church

after a community board

elected to reject its proposal.

The Crossway Community

Church proposed to the

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board that a collaboration between

the church and the city

council be used to fund and

maintain the new centre.

The board rejected the proposal

with a 4-3 vote at a recent

meeting.

Church secretary Pat White

said although they were disappointed

with the outcome, they

have other options in place for

the church’s location.

“It would have been nice to

get an answer sooner than this

. . . but that is the way it is, now

we just have to move on,” she

said.

Board chairman Mike

Davidson said he was “uncomfortable”

with the level of

investment needed by the city

council to make it work with

the church.

“The council would need to

invest around $1.5m for the

building itself and further

funding for land remediation,”

he said

He said it was possible the

required funds could top $2m.

“That would be a lot of

money to spend on a centre

in partnership with a church

. . . I don’t have any problem

with the organisation, I am just

uncomfortable about the level

of investment,” he said.

Cr Pauline Cotter also shared

this sentiment, saying she was

not happy with the terms of the

agreement.

She said the proposed

amount of funding contributed

by the city council and the

church seemed to be 50/50, but

the ownership was not equal.

The plan now is to replicate

some of the learnings the board

had while getting the St Albans

Community Centre off the

ground.

“It will probably start with a

working party to find out what

the community wants and

needs. From there, things start

to take off pretty quickly,” Mr

Davidson said.

He could not give a definitive

time frame around when

a working party would be

formed, but the board is looking

at its options to start sooner

rather than later.

STILL WAITING:

The Shirley

Community

Centre will not

be a joint venture

with a local

church, as the

community board

has decided it is

not in the best

interests of the

community. (Left)

FROM FIJI

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Thought I’d write a slightly different

article….

I’m in Fiji for ITF tennis with my son

Dylan for 2 weeks and I’ve never been

to Fiji before. An interesting, warm place

with splendid people. I’ve met some

great folk and seen some great tennis

and seen plenty of animals I so want to

help. We have had our share of ups and

downs on the tennis

court ( cramping

and a pulled

hamstring) and at our

resort ( leaking air

conditioning units,

power cuts, no Wifi

as promised), but

all has been sorted

eventually and has

made for a real travel

experience, one I’ll

never forget.

We are a reasonable drive from the tennis so

it’s been a 45 minute car drive filled of daily

adventures. We have had goats and cows just

traverse the road in front of us, speeding cars

and then ones that sit at 35km/hour and you

can’t pass them as passing lanes are rare. We

have seen a road traffic accident with fatalities

sadly. Fijians just

aim casually along

the sides of the

roads waiting to be

picked up for work

or getting places on

foot. Everyone looks

happy and relaxed in

sparkling clean attire,

yet there is brown

dust everywhere that

infiltrates everything.

The school children

look fantastic in

often starched

white uniforms and

clamber on the open

aired buses, arms

hanging out the

sides, laughing. The drivers are hugely

considerate, almost dangerously so,

slowing right down to let cars cross in

the middle of a busy open road. No

one is in a hurry and everyone is up and

rearing to go at 6.30am, waiting to be

picked up for work. Not many people

here own cars and taxis are everywhere.

The dogs touch my heart though. There

are so many that aimlessly wander all

over the place – in towns, sides of roads,

the tennis center and outside homes.

No one takes responsibility for them as the

breeding is rampant and out of control. None

are desexed so there are puppies everywhere.

They are scarily thin, bloated with worms,

crawling with fleas and ticks and hungry. They

still manage a tail wag though and I’ve even

managed to pat a few. I’m feeding them bread

and one square meals and they are so gently

accepting food. Many of them have sores all

over their bodies, no hair and many are feeding

puppies. Ive hardly seen any cats, except ones

that have unfortunately been squashed on the

roads. The grazing tethered cows look friendly

but on approaching them, they show me the

whites of their eyes and lower their heads to

charge. I have met a local Fijian Architect who

is building a Veterinary Hospital In Nadi, funded

by a wealthy

American couple

who want to help

the companion

animals here.

There is a small

SPCA clinic in

Lautoka but no

surgeries can be

performed there.

The only clinic is in

Suva where short

anaesthetics can

be performed. I

think Steve and

I would be keen

to come back

here and offer our

expertise and help these animals and

train some of the vets here. We’d bring

equipment and supplies with us next

time.

I have befriended a fantastic group of Fijian

children at the Lautoka tennis club. They are

aged between 7 and 12 years of age and get

tennis coaching for free on Sundays, racquets

and balls provided by the club. None of them

have shoes to play in, most are from very poor

families and tennis is an expensive sport. I

went out and bought 10 pairs of sports shoes

of different sizes for them

to be kept at the club and

used for the children that

need them. They were all

so grateful. Dylan is back

in August so I’ll send back

most of the boys old tennis

tops for the kids to enjoy

playing in. If they progress

at tennis it could be a way

out for these children.

I won’t

forget my 2

weeks here.

Everybody

thought I

wouldn’t like

Fiji at all, but

the openness

and genuine

friendliness

and interest

shown

by these

people have

made this

experience

one I’ll never

forget. I feel

Steve, Isaac

and I can make a difference to these people in

educating them on respecting and caring for

their pets, when we next return. It makes you

really realize how priviledged and wealthy we

all are. Giving back a little feels good.

Just an update on Indie, the White German

Shepherd, who managed to deliver 8 little

wriggley white pups on her own ( 6 boys and

2 girls) on 16th June. All are doing well, she is

an exceptional mother and my friend Mala

is realizing how big a responsibility and job

breeding is. All pups have homes – 6 will be

staying in Christchurch and 2 heading North.

Critical thinking shortage

Kennedy’s

Bush

resident

Graham

Townsend

writes this

week’s

opinion piece about

the lack of critical

thinking when it

comes to topics such

as climate change

I’ve spent a lifetime

teaching science.

If you define science to

include critical thinking,

I count the efforts of New

Zealand as a total failure.

Why?

Because critical thinking

is the ability to examine

evidence and conflicting

claims without allowing

prejudices or personal

interest to intrude.

And critical thinking,

sadly, is in seriously short

supply today.

This is what the

pioneering psychologist

William James meant

when he said that “A great

many people think they

are thinking, when they

are merely rearranging

their prejudices.”

An example: climate

change.

Comment threads and

twitter feeds are full of unsupported

prejudice rather

than fact.

“Climate change is not

happening”; “scientists

are all lying to get more

funding for their research”;

“climate always changes,

it’s not our fault”; “we are

due for a new ice age so

climate change is good”.

People who post this

rubbish ignore that fact

that science is a merciless

process of critically analysing

both the raw data and

the predictions made from

them.

I invite any lay-person

who thinks they can do

better to submit their own

analysis to the global science

community.

Fame and possibly fortune

awaits you if you can

prove the current consensus

wrong.

So why do these denier

memes refuse to die?

Simply because we can’t

face the conclusion that we

PEGASUS POST

– all of us – are changing

the climate.

That unpleasant fact hits

at the heart of our whole

lifestyle: our love affair

with cars, jet skis, quad

bikes and flying.

So the hands go over the

ears and we start coming

up with excuses and lies.

Let me state this clearly:

every major national science

academy around the

world has examined the

evidence and they are all

seriously concerned.

So what do we do?

Individual actions are

not enough – we need policy

changes at a national

and international level.

Politicians generally follow

public opinion – they

will do nothing until we

demand action.

And that won’t happen

until enough of us face the

truth.

That brings me back

to education and critical

thinking.

H.G Wells famously said

“Human history becomes

more and more a race

between education and

catastrophe”.

That’s never been truer

or more urgent than today.

Use your vote wisely.

Rise in water quality

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A SOUTHSHORE community

leader says improvement in water

quality around the estuary is a

step in the right direction.

New data has been released by

Environment Canterbury showing

gradual improvements in

water quality for sites on the east.

The report showed the quality

of water for the last year at high

tide in Caspian St, Penguin St,

South New Brighton Park, Sandy

Point, Humphreys Drive,

Beachville Rd jetty, Ferrymead

Bridge, Shag Rock, and Cave

Rock.

Each site was given a very poor,

poor, fair, good, or very good

score, depending on the contents

of the sampled water, some of

which included bacteria, faecal

matter, chlorophyll a, and many

other contaminants.

Caspian St was one of the best

of the five eastern sampled sites,

with a score of 74.6 out of 100.

South Brighton Residents’

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson said it was a step in

the right direction.

“The water quality in this area

has improved, but that improvement

is not man made. It has

solved some problems but generated

others that haven’t been

dealt with. There are a lot of steps

IMPROVEMENT: Water samples from Caspian St and Penguin

St in South New Brighton are the pick of the bunch, according

to new data.

to be taken further down the

line. There needs to be sustainable

planning,” he said.

Author of the report Lesley

Bolton-Ritchie said sites on the

south side of the estuary like

Beachville Rd jetty would always

have a higher score than sites on

the north and eastern banks.

“The closer to the estuary

mouth you are, the more tidal

influence there is. It’s healthier

for aquatic life on the other side

of the estuary, and also for swimming,”

she said.

Mrs Bolton-Ritchie said the

Penguin St site was on the rise as

well, due to its proximity to the

estuary mouth.

“Penguin St is pretty good, just

because it’s closer to the river

mouth . . . the only one of those

sites that isn’t that flash is the

South New Brighton Park site,”

she said.

Penguin St was rated the highest

eastern site with a score of

75.3. South New Brighton Park

got a ‘poor’ rating of 51.6. Sandy

Point had a ‘poor’ rating, and

scored 41.2. The Bridge St Bridge

scored a ‘poor rating’ of 46.

Pop up library

THE NEW Brighton Library

will be closing on August 1, but

not for long.

A temporary library will open

its doors at 60 Brighton Mall

just two weeks after the bigger

library closes its doors.

New Brighton Library is expected

to reopen early next year.

Work to be done includes

repairing the concrete columns

and floors, replacing the eastfacing

first-floor windows, painting

the exterior and putting in

new carpet.

City council community

libraries manager Erica Rankin

said the library had sustained

“moderate” earthquake damage

in 2011, but would be quickly

repaired.

“New Brighton Library is a

popular locale, certainly with

the most striking setting and

views of any library in our

network, and it’s going to be

getting the tender loving care it

deserves,” she said.

Mrs Rankin said it was

important the community had

a temporary location while the

works were being carried out.

“The New Brighton community

are incredibly engaged

library-users, and the decision

to set up shop in New Brighton

. . . means that they get that allimportant

stability,” she said.

The temporary location will

offer a small collection, including

all the usual items for borrowing,

plus eight free internet

computers. The opening hours

will be the same and pre-school

sessions will continue as normal.

Because it will take library

staff about two weeks to clear

New Brighton Library and set up

at the temporary location, there

will be a period from August 1

to 14 where no library services

will be available.

Young leader’s social equality vision

Parklands resident Josiah Tualamali’i is a 21-year-old

on the US Embassy Youth Council, the chairman of

a Pacific youth leadership group and a Canterbury

University student. Fraser Walker-Pearce talks to him

about superhero shows, how he became a leader for

Pasifika youth in Christchurch, and meeting NASA’s

deputy director

Hi Josiah. What have you been

up to recently?

Among other things, we

organised for about 280 young

people to come to the Transitional

Cathedral on June 30. It

was organised by some of my

friends and I to generate ideas

about decision-making and

just gather for some food and

a brainstorm session. It was a

really fun night with food and

ideas being shared.

Sounds good. Can you tell me

a bit about PYLAT?

PYLAT stands for Pacific

Youth Leadership and Transformation.

It’s a charitable trust that

supports young people in the

Pacific community, and helps to

make the Pacific youth aware of

opportunities in the community.

And you’re also part of the

United States Embassy Youth

Council. What exactly is that?

Canterbury University and

all universities in New Zealand

hand-pick a number of students

who are then checked by the US

Embassy. So they’re gathering

youth leaders who have access

to different communities in the

city, so the embassy can keep

the finger on the pulse of youth

groups in the city.

So do you have meetings with

the embassy often? And what

happens with that information?

They communicate what we

tell them back to Washington,

because one of Obama’s foreign

policy focuses was to do a Pacific

pivot, gathering up all knowledge

on what’s going on in Pacific

countries. The Trans-Pacific

Partnership Agreement was part

of it, but it was also about bettering

relationships with Pacific

communities. So there are 12

leaders in Canterbury for that,

and I am one of them. We have

a meeting every now and then

Previously

United Travel

with different diplomats, business

leaders and ex-pats. They

help us, and we give them our

knowledge about what’s going

on. It’s kind of cool this week on

Saturday, because we’re actually

meeting with the deputy director

of NASA, and it’s especially

cool because she’s a woman.

We don’t even know why we’re

meeting with her! It’s especially

interesting because of an event

we held last week, where we were

hoping to bridge gaps, like giving

women equal visibility, opportunities

and platforms to excel.

And now we get to meet one of

the top women in NASA. It’s a

secret meeting which we don’t

know much about. We could be

talking about Mars, we could be

talking about anything, it’s very

exciting.

What inspired you to become

a youth voice for the Pacific

community?

I think it was probably the

youth parliament that we had before

the earthquakes. It was that

others took the time to tell me

that I could make a difference. I

guess I was in the right place, at

the right time. Just good people

being around me.

How long have you been

involved with PYLAT?

I’ve been chairman for three

years now, so I started my second

two-year term last year, after I

was re-elected. Before the earthquakes

in 2010, the Pacific community

held a staged youth government

because they noticed

there weren’t many youth voices

in decision-making at the time.

And we loved it so much that

after the earthquakes, we kind

of thought, well, how do we keep

it going after the earthquakes?

So we made it into the trust it is

now. We now have 13 trustees,

with about two-thirds of that as

YOUNG LEADER: Josiah Tualamali’i at the Get FRESH ‘16

event, showing Pasifika students around Canterbury University.

youth and students, and young

professionals make up the rest.

Are you striving to see

Christchurch’s youth have a bigger

input into decision making?

Yes, absolutely, so what we say

in PYLAT is that Pacific young

people have valid information

and ideas that can be useful at

any level. That could be for the

Government, non-government

organisations, anything, but

there’s a big trust element in it.

It can be tough to trust that a

young person can have input to

these conversations, while being

respectful and articulate. I really

liked last year seeing the flag

panel had a young person on it.

You do all of this work for

youth and on boards, do you

have any spare time at all? Any

hobbies?

Yes, I really like to sing. I used

to sing in a choir, but now I just

2017 Early Birds

sing when I’m pottering around

the flat and doing things. I also

like watching TV programmes,

anything with heroes really. The

Arrow and Flash series are the

best ones and I go to the movies

a bit, too. I like to think that we

don’t need a super power to do

cool things in our community,

and it’s cool to watch the people

that we pretend we are, and do

those amazing things.

Where are you flatting for

university?

I flat in Ilam, but my family

home is in Parklands. I just went

back to my flat last night. It’s

all a bit busy, because I also do

some work on campus for Pacific

young people, tutoring them to

help them get their NCEA levels.

It’s cool to see that Canterbury

University cares about getting

them over the line and offering

those classes.

Oh right, so what subjects do

you tutor?

I tutor history, English and

drama. Those were the ones I

was quite good at during school.

It’s also a cool project because

the students can go on to tertiary

education if they want, because

they have the qualifications.

Why were history and English

your favourites at school?

I really liked understanding

why we’re at the place we are

now through our history. Also,

learning about colonisation,

racism, and all of those words

that get thrown around these

days. It’s also quite important to

me because my mum is Palagi

(Samoan word for European),

and my father is Samoan. So for

me, it was quite hard when I was

young to work out my own identity.

After all the classes in history

and English, I kind of learnt

what was right and wrong for me

through those classes. Growing

up as a Pacific person, I could

understand the benefits, and the

strengths of those people.

What high school did you

attend?

I went to Hillview Christian

School for years 9 and 10, then

to Middleton Grange School for

years 11 to 13.

And what primary school?

I actually went to primary

school in Dunedin, to Anderson’s

Bay School for the first few

years, then to Hillview for the

other half of primary.

You study history and politics

at university, so what job would

you have if you could just pick

one and start tomorrow?

I can’t give one answer to that

really. I’d want to be the CEO of

a company that works with Pacific

people and uses the knowledge

the community has taught

me. I’d want to increase the participation

and involvement of the

community. The only problem

is that I don’t know if that kind

of job exits yet. I wouldn’t mind

working in the university for a

while, and I’m enjoying tutoring

at the moment. I could definitely

see myself teaching others as

well.

Inmates help feed the homeless

INMATES FROM Christchurch

Men’s Prison have grown more

than 2300kg of vegetables and

herbs, as well as 3400 seedlings,

for a very worthy cause.

Over the past 10 months, men

from Tirohanga Paeroa Unit

have built vegetable gardens, and

grown and contributed vegetables

and seedlings to those in

need. The programme has been

undertaken with assistance from

charity group, Help for the

Homeless.

Prison residential manager

Graeme Hunter said the men

wanted to keep busy and do

something that would make a

difference for people in need in

the community.

“The new gardens seemed the

perfect way to do something

Maori health provider Purapura

Maori youth offenders and their

Those who work in the garden

gain credits towards a National

Certificate in Horticulture qualification.

The initiative has already

In his mid-40s, he has a

background in crop farming and

market gardens.

He has been involved in the

project from the start and has

taken on a leadership role in the

Maori offenders make up 43.7

per cent of people on community

sentences in the country.

This is the first time Canterbury

Corrections has partnered with a

health provider specifically to provide

targeted services for at-risk

Maori youth offenders.

Corrections Canterbury district

manager Lisa Joseph said:

“We are working together to

intervene and steer this group of

youth toward better health outcomes

and crime-free futures.”

Purapura Whetu chief executive

Karaitiana Tickell said its

goal was to empower tangata

whaiora (people seeking wellness).

GARDEN TIME:

Prisoners from

the Tirohanga

Paeroa Unit

have built

vegetable

gardens to

grow food to

help feed the

homeless. ​

“I mentor others through the

practical aspects of the course

– weeding, turning soil over,

limited knowledge of gardening,

but there is a correct way to do

“By connecting Maori youth

to their culture, traditions and

values of our tupuna (ancestors),

we are helping them to better

understand and take ownership

of their mental, physical and spiritual

health,” she said.

It would also connect youth

offenders to health support, education,

employment, housing and

produce,” he said.

Help for the Homeless was

founded in 2014 by Amy Burke,

of New Brighton, who saw

homeless people hungry, cold, or

going through rubbish bins in

Christchurch.

“Produce from the prison

gardens is delivered to [Help for

the Homeless] cooks who create

dishes for our locals,” Ms Burke.

“We also provide support to

the recently housed, including

youth and any family going

through hardship. This filters to

schools and community organisations,

The 3400 seedlings, grown as

part of the NZQA horticulture

course, were given to the charity

for their ‘recently housed’ homeless.

This will enable them to learn

to live off the land, too.

Ms Joseph said: “It makes sense

in terms of both our services to

take the opportunity – while

these youth are on sentence – to

connect them with good health

practices and to also look at addressing

some of the lifestyle and

health issues which may impact

their offending.”

YOU CHECK THE

GEONET APP

GeoNet helps us all to make

our communities safer.

We live in the shaky isles and that means we need a high-tech

monitoring system to detect and measure geological hazards

like earthquakes.

Fifteen years ago, the Earthquake Commission collaborated

with GNS Science to create the world leading GeoNet system.

Today, its skilled team uses a network of more than 600 sensors

across New Zealand to detect, analyse and respond to

earthquakes, volcanic activity and other geological hazards.

The successful partnership between EQC and GNS continues

to thrive. EQC currently provides around $12 million a year in

funding. In turn, GeoNet data helps EQC to assess the risks

from natural hazards, and that helps keep Kiwi household levies

affordable at 15c for every $100 worth of cover.

GeoNet informs New Zealanders about natural hazards.

Its data is vital to many diverse users from power providers and

air traffic controllers to forest owners and insurers. The quality

and availability of GeoNet data also attracts some of the best

brains in the world, giving a boost to local research that would

otherwise not be possible.

GeoNet is part of EQC’s research and education programme.

Self help for

knocks, sprains and strains

Knocks, bangs, strains and sprains are part of normal day-today

life, especially with sport and recreational activity.

DOING tHE right things early (within the

first 48 hours) can often settle mild injuries

without the need for further treatment – or

at least minimise tissue damage, giving your

recovery the best start.

The acronym for self treatment,

RICE, is the way to remember what to

do. REst (stop using the injured part),

ICE (use an icepack for 20 minutes to

reduce swelling, inflammation and pain),

COMPREssION (use a bandage or wrap

around a joint or limb to help control

swelling, ELEVAtION (where possible

lift up the injured part to help control

swelling).

Often, over-the-counter, non-steroidal

anti-inflammatories (NsAIDs) and

paracetamol can be helpful as well. Be

careful to follow the dose advice on the

packet or check the website healthinfo.

org.nz to see whether or not they will be

suitable for you.

Equally important is to avoid things

that will make it worse.!

Remember HARM; HEAt (avoid

heating the part this increases swelling

and inflammation), ALCOHOL (alcohol

will increase bleeding and inflammation),

RUNNING (avoid vigorous activity using

the sore part), MAssAGE (rubbing and

acute injury will increase bleeding and

swelling).

seek immediate help if you have severe

pain, are unable to put weight through

the part or if the part is deformed (bent

or grossly swollen).

For more advice check healthinfo.org.nz

or health line 0800 611 116 but remember

RICE and HARM. Why not cut out these

sections and put them on the

fridge door for handy reference.

If you have difficulty resuming activity

or if pain persists, call and see Richard or

Wendy at Physiotherapy Associates, phone

389 7196, for help in getting back to normal

levels of activity or sport.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Do Your JOINTS

Ever Hurt?

Our bOdy has a padding called cartilage,

a protective spongy coating, between all

moving bone surfaces. Cartilage allows the

joints to move freely. Cartilage however is

easily worn away or damaged with activity

but is normally being constantly rebuilt. If

the replacement and repair of cartilage slows

down the moving bone surfaces become

closer and may start scraping together. This

can eventually cause joint inflammation,

pain and reduced mobility. If it continues the

bone surfaces become rough and symptoms

worsen. This process is called wear and tear

arthritis or osteoarthritis.

researchers have found certain nutrients

may stimulate the body to produce more

cartilage and also support the healing of

connective tissue, ligaments, bone and

muscle.

GO-Healthy New Zealand has developed

a highly effective combination of nutrients

to support all areas of joint health. The

formula called Go GLuCOSAMINE

1-A-day provides well researched nutrients

like glucosamine, chondroitin, proline,

manganese and vitamin d3 to support the

formation of cartilage, connective tissue,

ligaments, bone and muscle. It is known

when the joints are inflamed they can be

very painful and this inflammation may

also slow the formation of new cartilage.

For this reason GO-GLuCOSAMINE

1-A-day also contains an effective blend of

ginger, turmeric and celery to help reduce

joint inflammation and pain. Inflammation

may be further reduced by also taking a

therapeutic amount of high purity fish oil or

krill oil.

Further detailed information is available

from the Naturopath and Medical Herbalist

or one of the Natural Health Advisers at

Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110

Seaview rd, New brighton, PH: 388-5757.

We are Always Happy to Help!

Are You Magnesium

Deficient?

MINErALS ArE the building blocks

of good health. Some minerals are only

needed in trace amounts where others like

magnesium are needed in much larger

amounts and on a regular basis to prevent

deficiency and maintain optimum health. A

large number of us do not obtain sufficient

magnesium from our diet and may notice

some of the common signs of deficiency.

Some of the more common symptoms that

may be caused by insufficient magnesium

are: leg and muscle cramps, twitches, muscle

pain, muscle fatigue and weakness, tremors

of hands, blurred vision, restlessness, poor

sleep, raised and/or unstable blood pressure,

poor circulation, irregular heartbeat,

shortness of breath, swallowing problems,

dizziness, headaches, anxiety, agitation,

irritability, seizures, poor concentration and

many more.

Although many young people now show

signs of magnesium deficiency symptoms

generally worsen as we age due to our

digestive system being less efficient. Taking a

magnesium supplement of sufficient strength

may be a sensible option to top up our

vital magnesium levels. Not all magnesium

supplements however are well absorbed by

everyone. Luckily a new marine sourced

magnesium has been found that offers good

levels of absorbable magnesium as well as

many trace nutrients that are low in the

diet but essential for good health. Further

information is available in store from our

natural health advisers, naturopathic doctor

Cold weather a pain?

Say goodbye to aching joints!

EvEr NOTICEd your joints aching

more in winter? Studies show a strong

relationship between cold, damp days and

arthritic pain. Can the elements really

make joints ache?

In cold weather the joint capsules swell,

causing pain, stiffness and inflammation.

The soft tissues around the joints are less

pliable so joints feel tight and sore.

Sitting still is bad news for your joints.

Exercise helps lubricate them to prevent

pain. So wrap up, keep your joints warm

and move!

Too cold out? Exercise indoors with lowimpact

moves. Try yoga or Tai Chi and use

the Aircycle circulation booster to warm

joints, keeping them flexible and strong.

In the cold, our body restricts how much

blood it sends to extremities. Our hands

and feet get cold and our joints get less

blood.

you can strengthen joints at any age.

Keep warm through moving and keep

your circulation boosted. The Aircycle

circulation booster warms hands and feet

and strengthens muscles and joints for

improved balance and mobility.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Christchurch School of Music

the ChriStChurCh School of Music

is a family-oriented community aimed

at providing quality music education in

and around Christchurch. in 2015 CSM

celebrated 60 years of teaching children to

love and appreciate music so why not join

us and become a part of the next 60 years?

CSM is a not-for-profit organisation

with a strong focus on community. On

a Saturday morning the whole family

can find something to suit. Preschool

children can start their musical journey by

joining in our experiential “take Orff with

Music” while older children and adults

may opt for group or individual lessons

on a specific instrument (including voice).

Those who already play are welcome to

join in one of the great ensembles which

all take part in regular concerts including

Saturday soirees and the popular annual

Showcase Concert. Recitals where

individuals can perform are also held

regularly.

CSM also provides a comprehensive

music education to participating primary

schools via its Outreach programmes.

With programmes offered in band, strings,

recorder and ukulele in a wide range of

Christchurch schools this is an area of the

School, which has grown fast over the last

few years.

Another area that has grown rapidly

over the last few years is the Late Starters

programme where adults approaching

retirement with more time on their hands

have really enjoyed learning an instrument

they never had the chance to play in their

early years and join an ensemble with

other like-minded adults.

if Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also

offers a range of weekday opportunities for

learning and playing music.

if affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the rata Foundation.

Please contact us via our website www.

csm.org.nz and let us start you on a

musical journey that will bring pleasure

for a lifetime.

Ensuring a safe work place

LeArninG FirSt aid is not only a part

of ensuring a safe work place, but also

an integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to the

sports field?

not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be wide

and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from

a regular ambulance service. it is therefore

essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both

professional

and social.

take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial

injuries, or the ability to perform effective

CPr. These skills can be achieved on a

course of eight hours duration and would

generally fit into low to medium risk area.

But take this same person on to a sports field

either as a spectator or player when a higher

level injury occurs. The eight hour course

covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or

26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck

and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia

and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

new Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result of

motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home.

Fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers many

of the skills required to deal with the most

common injuries, such as falls (which can

result in head neck and spinal injuries) and

dealing with complex scenes such as motor

vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options that

will best suit your needs. Look beyond the

workplace and consider your family and

your location. Check that you have a good

quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with

replenished items, and that everyone knows

where it is located.

smooth-air products

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

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic

markets. They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

VeNtILAtIoN

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.

Computing For Free - still going strong after 15 years

Ara Institute of Canterbury (formerly CPIT)

has provided free computer courses at four

hubs across Christchurch for over 15 years.

Now, it is evolving to better connect a wide

variety of learners with accessible training for

basic computer skills or upskilling to improve

career opportunities.

Computing For Free manager Peter Nock

says that over 19,000 people have accessed

free or affordable training so far. “Originally

we offered short, non-assessed computer

courses as the government saw the need for

adults to upskill in this area. We created a

friendly and welcoming place to get started

on computing skills, and we still do this, but

now we also do a whole lot more.”

At hubs in New Brighton, Bishopdale, Hornby,

Rangiora, Christchurch’s Madras Street and

now also in Timaru, Ara staff continue to

support community learning needs through

Computing For Free.

We help people

get to where they

want to go.

further skills for their particular job or to take

the next step in their career.”

The course timetables are designed to

be flexible to fit around family and

professional commitments.

“Our approach works,” Peter says. “We

consistently deliver quality and receive

excellent student feedback. We help people

to get where they want to go.”

Computing For Free Manager

“There is still a range of self-paced, short

courses of between 20 to 40 hours to

introduce people to specific programs like

web design and Powerpoint. However, we

also offer business and job-seeking courses,

and the National Certificate in Computing,

which is a formal qualification that employers

recognise and value.”

The courses are facilitated by tutors who are

on-hand to provide support. “Our staff are

passionate about the courses they teach and

the communities they teach in, providing a

really great experience for our students.”

Computing for Free is offered through

Ara Connect, which introduces learners

across the Canterbury region to skills that

are industry-relevant and designed to help

achieve career goals.

Peter adds that computer skills are a

necessity in today’s professional environment.

“Everyone needs to know their way around a

computer and some people need to acquire

Upskilling leads to teaching role

Jo Harkerss had reached a crossroad in

her life when she enrolled in a Computing

For Free programme at Ara Institute of

Canterbury’s Bishopdale hub. Now she is a

computing tutor helping others to succeed.

Why did you first enrol in

Computing For Free?

I was on maternity leave when I was made

redundant from my job. Both my sister and

my mother were enrolled at the New Brighton

hub – that’s how I found out about it. I’ve

always enjoyed computing and I wanted to

use my time wisely to upskill myself.

What are you doing now?

I’m working as a tutor at Computing For Free!

What do you enjoy about your job?

It’s very cool helping other people to succeed.

The hardest thing is for people to walk in the

door. Then they realise that we are really nice!

And that they can do it. You see people come

in who feel afraid of computers, but we are

here to help them to achieve. Study is not easy

for everyone, but our programmes have a

good balance of theory and practice, plus the

programmes are self-paced to fit around other

commitments such as work and family.

For many people it is a huge stepping stone.

They may have been made redundant or been

out of the workforce after having children.

Here they can connect with other people and

learn new skills that will make them more

employable and give them confidence to

try other things too. They might have used

computers in the past, but programmes

change and skills need to be updated.

What sort of feedback do you get?

Because we’re like a family, once people

have finished their studies here, they come

back and tell us what they’re doing. Our

programmes lead into further computing

studies at Ara, or they can help you to find

work. I think most importantly,

our students get a taste of what they’re

capable of. They develop computer skills but

they also develop confidence and brush up

on the soft skills, such as communication

and networking, that employers value in

today’s workplaces.

We’re here to help make your enrolment easy. Please call, email or visit our website for more information.
