The identity of Coral Luscombe and her dog Poppi’s anonymous benefactor is a still a

mystery. The kind stranger paid a $1000 vet bill for Poppi, who was hurt badly after being

hit by a car, but is now on the mend. Now Mrs Luscombe and Poppi just want to give the

woman a hug and to say thanks.

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

POLICE ARE urging people not

to think there is an explosion

of burglaries in South New

Brighton because of posts on

Facebook.

Senior Sergeant Dave

Robertson (right) said

many of the posts about

burglaries were from

people who are “alarmists.”

They were “rumour

mongering.”

The area where Facebook posts

said there had been an explosion

of break-ins was within a 1km

radius of Bridge St.

It was giving a misleading impression

of the real situation, said

Senior Sergeant Robertson.

Overall there had not been an

increase in burglaries in the area

concerned, apart from a small

spike about six weeks ago, he

said.

“[On Facebook, people] like to

rant and rave about burglaries.

In the past I’ve seen them count

Neighbours and friends and the

people involved all tend to post

about the same one . . . they’re

counting two as five and things

like that,” he said.

But, a South New

Brighton resident, who

did not want to be named,

disagreed.

“You can talk to anyone

and they’d know of at

least one [burglary]. There

wouldn’t be someone who

isn’t spooked about it all,” she

said.

The woman said neighbours

around her, friends down her

been burgled recently.

Judith Collins said police will

as it was being shifted in police

priorities from a volume crime to

Community board’s low attendance

leads to lack of decision-making

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

A LACK of attendance

from Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board members

meant a decision on a major

road upgrade – which could

take away 70 per cent of car

parks – has been delayed.

A joint community board

meeting was called to discuss

whether the North Avon Rd

renewal project, which is likely

to take away 40 to 70 of the 100

car parks available along the

road, should go ahead.

The meeting between

Hagley-Ferrymead, Shirley-

Papanui, and Burwood-

Pegasus community boards

was held last Thursday at the

city council building.

But a decision on the

repairs, worth about $2.9

million, could not be made

because only city councillor

Yani Johanson, chairwoman

Sara Templeton and member

Alexandra Davids were present

for Hagley-Ferrymead.

City councillor for the

Hagley-Ferrymead Ward Paul

Lonsdale couldn’t attend the

meeting and community board

member Brenda Lowe-Johnson

joined the meeting too late.

ROAD RENEWAL: North Avon Rd could receive a multi-million dollar upgrade. ​

To be able to discuss a

decision, all community

boards had to have at least four

members present.

Cr Lonsdale said he wanted

to be at the combined meeting,

but could not make it.

“I would’ve (attended), but

I had issues with pre-booked

meetings and development

issues in the city centre,” he

said.

Do you own a property

with unrepaired

earthquake damage?

City councillor David East

said it was disappointing to

be unable to make a decision,

but the low attendance was

understandable.

“It’s a shame we’ll have to

reconvene, but (the Hagley-

Ferrymead Community

Board is) only five-strong

anyway. They used to have

seven, but one went overseas

and one lives way out of town,”

he said.

Community consultation

showed the highest priority for

concerned residents was the

loss of parking spaces.

With only one meeting

left before the October

elections, it means the new

city council will make the

final decision based on

the community boards

recommendations.

In Brief

be held this Sunday at 11am along

Swimmer ready for transplant games

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BEN STANBURY, 11, was

once told he had a one-in-three

chance of dying.

Now, after receiving a liver

transplant last year, the young

swimmer will be the only child

organ recipient from New

Zealand to be compete at the

Australian Transplant Games

held in Sydney.

Ben, of St Albans, will travel

to Sydney this week to compete

in swimming, shot-put, a 50m

sprint and 10-pin bowling.

At four months old, Ben

was diagnosed with polycystic

kidney disease after he was

rushed to hospital with heart

failure.

The disease is a genetic disorder

where abnormal cysts grow

in the kidneys. He also

had severe problems with his

liver.

The night of his diagnosis was

a moment his mother Traci Stanbury

would never forget after she

was told he had a one-in-three

chance in dying.

“In the end they paralysed

him, put him on an ambulance

and he spent the next month

living up in Starship Hospital,”

she said.

Mrs Stanbury said.

Inspired by paralympian Sophie

Pascoe, who won five medals

at the Rio Paralympics, Ben

will be competing in numerous

events including his favourite

sport of swimming.

Ben first became interested

in swimming at age four and

leading up to the games he has

been practising once a week in

preparation.

“Never give up because it can

“Ben is very proud of the fact

Parents set to fight

Community

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

MARSHLAND SCHOOL

parents are lining up to fight

one another – but all for a good

cause.

They will hold a fundraising

boxing event so the school can

buy a car to assist pupils getting

to academic and sporting events.

A pair of boxing gloves signed

items up for auction on the night.

Event organiser Melissa

nine parents pitched the idea of

a King of the Ring event to the

school’s board of trustees, the

principal, and to Boxing New

“We have a school parents’

was interested, and we quite

rapidly had a number of parents

interested. Then we had to meet

with the board of trustees and

the school principal, and we got

clearance,” she said.

Ms McGraw said the event

has 28 boxers, most of whom

are “mums and dads”, who have

never “stepped in the ring”

before.

over projects

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

ALMOST THREE weeks after

a behind-closed-doors meeting

with city councillors, a feasibility

report on the New Brighton

hot salt water pools and North

Beach promenade is yet to be

seen by the Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board.

Reports on the North Beach

promenade and hot salt water

pools project were presented to

the city council at a staff briefing

on August 29.

Previously, Pegasus Post

reported that doubts had been

cast over whether the $2.4

million North Beach promenade

project will go ahead in its

current form.

The behind-closed-door

meetings revealed problems with

financing the project, which has

potentially jeopardised it.

city council meeting are yet to be

seen by the board.

“They haven’t been seen by the

board yet. They have been kept

up to date with information,

but DCL are still working on

both [projects] so they haven’t

finalised anything,” he said.

City councillor Glenn

Livingstone said the board needs

to see the feasibility reports, even

if they are not fully complete.

“The board needs to see them .

them,” he said.

Readers respond to last

week’s Pegasus Post article

on potentially delaying

repairs to the New Brighton

Pier until March next year

Mark O’Malley: If they are

going to wait till after the surf

carnival to start the repair, they

may as well wait till after the

Duke Festival of Surfing which

attracts over 200 competitors

and finishes on March 26.

Anne Marchant: Pier repairs

should be postponed. Not

over summer, not during surf

carnival, not while the library is

closed. Not until a final design

is found for a ‘fisher’s deck’ (safe

and not smelly) that can be done

at the same time.

Claire Lawrie: I think it

would be good to delay repairs

to the pier until after the summer.

The surf carnival would be

wonderful. Also, do we really

need the upheaval of repairs

over Christmas and the warmer

weather?

Reader Jo Zervos

responds to an article on

community board member

Linda Stewart running

for election in both the

Burwood Ward and the

Rangiora-Ashley Ward.

I was surprised to learn that

Linda Stewart was going to be

standing in Rangiora as well.

However, Linda is a very capable

person and, with nine years of

local community board experience

behind her, obviously has a

good idea what she is in for.

I have dealt with Linda a lot

through the Keep QE II in the

East group and she was also on

the CAG (Community Advisory

Group) regarding the ERS. She

was the only member of the last

board to fully support our community

and CAG group when it

came to the scope of the new QE

II facility the east is getting.

She fully supported extra pool

space, and the extra pool that

the communities were originally

promised in the 2012 annual

plan. She feels that we have been

wronged (as do most), and that

this is unfinished business. She

has also listened to the community

regarding the entirety of QE

II, and would like to be involved

in the upcoming master plan of

the site.

In the past six years of dealing

with the council and board, she

has been the most efficient to

deal with. She has taken the time

to respond to our hundreds of

emails (unlike some), met with

our group and other community

groups supportive of QE II, and

she stood up against management

decisions, often being the

lone voice, when the entire board

should have.

From observing meetings,

Linda often faced a tough battle

getting her voice heard, as other

board members had not taken

the time or made the effort to

meet with the concerned CAG

group members to find out what

their concerns were around the

decisions made during that process.

But she stuck to her guns

and I respect her for that.

We haven’t always seen eye-toeye

and have disagreed at times,

but I am sure she would be quite

capable filling a double role if

elected. Best of luck Linda.

Salt water pools hot election issue

Where would you like to see the New Brighton hot salt water pool

facility built and why? Do you think the city council will be able to

follow through with the promise of building the pools?

Dean Lester:

Coastal Ward

city council

candidate

“The proposed

facility with a 4000

sq m footprint has

a natural location on the New

Brighton foreshore, with the

design ensuring customer comfort

to the 300,000 that may be

attracted annually by providing

protection from the prevailing

winds. Responsibility for this

development falls with Development

Christchurch Ltd,

who has a mandate to catalyse

new investment and development

in Christchurch, thereby

improving economic and social

outcomes for the city. We must

look for and achieve better

social outcomes and grow the

economy in the Coastal Ward.”

Jo Kane: Coastal

Ward city council

candidate

“Built with all environmental

considerations,

including ease

of access, sustainable

funding, in the location that best

sits with the community’s expectations.

Coastal environments are

harsh and unforgiving, therefore,

location, design and maintenance

are a critical factor. The notion

of hot salt water pools has been

around since the 70s and, unless

the council truly commits to a

world class development and the

funding needed, it could become

a dumbed down version and the

legacy project could be deemed

unaffordable. The pools potential

to New Brighton as a destination

could help the economic heart,

but could again break hearts by

not happening.”

David East:

Coastal Ward

city council

candidate

“The hot salt water

pools need to be

built on the foreshore,

north of the pier. In this

location, they will be an added

attraction to activities on the

foreshore and, more importantly,

need to be constructed

in a manner that allows users

to view the beach and pier. The

eastern suburbs has a wide range

of recreation activities that can

be promoted as a reason to come

to the area. They need to be promoted

as a package with the hot

salt water pools as a great finish

to their experience of a wide

range of activities on offer in the

Coastal Ward. Yes, I am cautiously

confident that this project

will be constructed.”

Tim Sintes: Coastal Ward community board candidate

“My first choice would be on the road side of the grassed area next to the library. There has

been talk of closing Marine Parade, if that was the case I would put it back where the road

is. Otherwise, I am just happy to have it somewhere near the beach. As it will come under

Development Christchurch Ltd plans, I definitely believe it will happen. I believe this is the

start of the revitalising of New Brighton.”

Elections 16

Andrea

Cummings:

Coastal Ward

community board

candidate

“The community and

community board

haven’t been a part of the process

and haven’t seen pre-feasibility

reports that incumbent councillors

have seen. This makes it difficult

to have conversations with

ratepayers and form opinions on

the best location for the hot salt

water pools. My assumption is

that having it close to the library

and/or surf club would be useful

in terms of achieving the goals of

rejuvenation that are at the fore

of residents’ wishes. Feasibility is

the core requirement of whether

council will build or not, and I

don’t know the details to be able

to say.”

Kim Money:

Coastal Ward

community board

candidate

“This community,

as requested by the

city council, chose

the hot salt water pools as their

legacy project. Therefore, it must

they will, especially now Development

Christchurch Ltd and

Regenerate Christchurch have it

on their agendas. With community

agreement my preference for

positioning the pools is between

the pier and New Brighton surf

club, which would allow for a

natural flow to the beach and

New Brighton CBD. The position

must not impact negatively on the

opposite. I have supported this

project for years through submissions

and the Pier and Foreshore

Society.”

SCIRT programme on the home straight

SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining

walls is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December.

The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing

repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

• We’re almost finished connecting homes in Aranui to their new resilient vacuum

wastewater system. Storm water and roading work will continue until the end of the year.

• Pages Road will be getting a new road surface between Cowles Stadium and Anzac

Drive before we finish.

• Installation of a new wastewater pipe along Retreat Road is more than half way

through, and will connect up with the pipe on the other side of the Avon by December.

• We’re more than two thirds through extensive repairs to the wastewater, storm water,

fresh water and roading networks in Parklands.

• The three-year programme of repairs to the wastewater, storm water, fresh water and

roads in Burwood is due to finish in October.

• New Brighton will still see major works to the wastewater network and crews repairing

small sections of road until December.

Your support is helping us to get the job done. Thank you from the SCIRT team.

Elections 16

With

Glenn

Livingstone:

Burwood Ward -

city councillor

A second term councillor,

I bring experience

as a Presbyterian minister to

understanding communities.

I’ve focused on our community

facilities, such as QE11 and the

Aranui Community Centre. I’ve

initiated Stronger Christchurch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team

and residents meetings over our

numerous roading issues. I’m

passionate about embracing collaborative

processes to determine

the red zone’s future.

I’ve led the renovation of the

old city mission for emergency

housing and played an integral

role developing the Council’s

Housing Policy. A Coast to Coast

competitor, I have a vision that

our ward becomes a draw-card

for sporting, recreational and

environmental activities. I offer

continuity and experience.

Cruize Erueti:

Burwood Ward -

city councillor

We can drive the

development of our

eastern communities,

by working alongside existing

Christchurch initiatives on a

larger scale, within our ward.

This can be achieved with your

local support. It is time for the

east to rise to its feet and stand.

We have proven that we have the

heart, creativity and resilience

to build our community. That

we stand for progression and

development within our community

and for the community.

As important as it is for the people

to have a choice, the people

deserve to have a voice.

Alexandra Davids, Brenda Lowe-Johnson, Jackie Simons, Jack Singh

Burwood Ward, Coastal-Burwood Community Board: Brian Steer

the October 8 deadline looming for the local body elections, the

Pegasus Post asked candidates to send in why they should get your

vote. The eastern suburbs is covered by three wards - Burwood, Coastal

and Linwood. A city councillor is elected from each. Two are selected

from each ward to be on the community board.

Dean Lester:

Coastal Ward -

city councillor

My first house was

in Inwoods Rd and

over the past 20 years

I have enjoyed the easy access to

the beach, sea and forest to walk,

run and bike. These need to be

protected and have good safe

access.

I have advocated as an insurance

expert over the past six

years helping Cantabs in their

David vs. Goliath challenges with

Earthquake Commission and

insurers.

The wealth of local knowledge

must be used to drive our continued

recovery in the right direction.

I want the Coastal Ward

voice to be heard in the enthusiastic

and committed tone used by

the locals.

Jo Kane:

Coastal Ward -

city councillor

Quite frankly the

coastal ward has suffered

a steady decline

due to under investment, over

promises and lack of maintenance

for years. The earthquakes

should have accelerated the

work programme for this area,

instead you’ve been patronised

with grandiose plans and relying

on the tremendous spirit of the

community. Forthright, strong

and experienced as a previous

Deputy Mayor in Waimakariri

and a regional councillor I know

how to get things done. I will

set up an office, live locally and

then vigorously demand that

from Southshore to Brooklands

(including Parklands) that the

priorities set by the community

are funded and actioned.

PEGASUS POST

David East:

Coastal Ward -

city councillor

I have represented

the Coastal Ward for

12 years.

My significant involvement in

this term has been with the QEII

Pool rebuild (about to start), new

high schools on QEII Park and

advocating for the retention of

gravity sewerage in Parklands.

I have also been significantly

involved in coastal hazard management

in the eastern suburbs,

successfully challenging reports

commissioned and advocating

for a practical and measured

approach to sea level rise and

coastal hazards.

I am proud to represent the ward

and continue to be involved with

many organisations. I seek your

vote to continue advocating for

our wonderful community

Yani Johanson: Linwood Ward - city councillor

I’m an experienced councillor seeking re-election. This term of council I have: • Served a

director of Christchurch City Holdings Limited and as a trustee on the Christchurch Arts

Centre, supported libraries, recreation centres, swimming pools, and community centres

rebuilt and repaired in local communities (including a Linwood/Woolston pool as a top priority),

committed to fixing broken suburbs ahead of gold plating the central city, stood firm

on retaining public ownership of public assets, promoted active recreation and creative industries and

stopped most Councillors double-dipping from director’s fees. I’m dedicated to standing up for social

justice, environmental sustainability, and transparent/accountable decision making.

I believe community boards are a vehicle for people to be heard,

those who are confidently vocal, and meaningfully engaging those

within my ward. Restoring and improving infrastructure is important,

Port Hills business Bidvest has stepped up to support more than 700

local children acquire the life skills necessary to achieve success.

They recently presented a cheque of $12,220 to the Graeme Dingle

Foundation in Christchurch which delivers four programmes into both

primary and high schools across the city. The funds will be used to

support the continuation of the Kiwi Can Values programme currently

being delivered at St Anne’s Catholic School, Bromley School and

Christchurch East School.

LIFE MEMBER: The Lions Club of New Brighton celebrated a new life member

at a recent meeting. Dick Johns was recognised for his contribution to the club

over 30 years. More than 50 people, including Mr Johns’ twin sister and five

grandchildren, were present for the ceremony, which was kept secret until the

presentation. Mr Johns said he was blown away by the club’s gesture and was so

overwhelmed that he shed a few tears at the ceremony.

Pie and pints for community centre build

PIE AND pint nights are

being held to raise money for a

community centre to be built

on the former Bridge St Baptist

Church site.

Community fundraising

nights are being held by the The

Bridge South Brighton Trust to

raise money for the project.

Tickets cost $15, with

local bands providing live

entertainment, and the pies are

provided by the baker from the

former Bridge St Bakehouse

Cafe.

The next Pie and Pint Night

event is planned for mid-

October at the South Brighton

Community Centre in Beatty St.

The former Bridge St Baptist

Church building is being

redeveloped into a community

hall, wellness centre, office space

and performance venue called

The Bridge.

Although the trust’s purchase

of the church building has not

been finalised, it will be lifted

and its foundations levelled

by SmartLift after the trust won

a Facebook competition run

by SmartLift with a prize of

up to $150,000 worth of repair

work.

The trust gained over 2200

online votes for the competition.

South New Brighton School,

which is fundraising for a hall,

is keen to use the facility, as is

the kindergarten next door and

other local groups.

The next two phases of

development will bring the

building up to 100 per cent

of the building code with

earthquake strengthening work.

There is a $71,000 shortfall in

funding for this stage which

community fundraising will go

towards.

Mystery woman pays vet bill

• By Gabrielle Stuart

FOCUSED ON cradling the

broken body of her little dog

after it was hit by a car, Coral

Luscombe didn’t think to ask the

name of the kind stranger who

helped her.

Hours later she found out the

stranger had anonymously

paid $1000 toward her dog’s vet

bill.

Now she just wants to say

thank you.

Ms Luscombe, a sickness beneficiary,

had been out in the yard

with her great nieces when she

said her papillon dog, Poppi, saw

another dog in the park across

Queenspark Drive.

“She shot straight through

the fence. I was screaming at

her, Poppi, Poppi, stop. One car

missed her, but then she was

hit and she was dragged under

the car. I just screamed, and the

elderly lady with her dog across

the road screamed as well,” she

said.

The driver stopped, and a

small crowd gathered.

The stranger was among them,

a woman who looked to be in her

late 30s, she said.

She had been further up the

road and had seen the accident

happen, and offered to drive

KINDNESS: Coral Luscombe and her dog Poppi, who had to have two operations after being hit by a car, PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Ms Luscombe and Poppi to the

vet.

“I remember her saying she

had animals and had been in

the same situation herself,” Ms

Luscombe said.

She turned down the offer and

drove herself to the vet, but she

found out later the woman had

followed her and paid the bill

after she left.

Poppi needed two operations

to clean her wounds and perform

skin grafts, a night in the

hospital, and may still need a toe

removed.

The bill added up to more than

$1300, and Ms Luscombe said

paying it would have made the

next few months a struggle.

When the vet called later that

day to say most of the bill had

been paid, she could not believe

it.

“I was in shock. I sat down and

burst into tears,” she said.

She said she would love to

meet the woman and “say a million

thank yous.”

“Just thinking there is a

beautiful soul out there who

would be kind enough to do this

for me and my little dog, it shows

there are still good people out

there.”

‘Fearless’ Andy makes news

North Beach surfer

in Hawaiian shark

attack drama

THE FRIEND of a Christchurch

holiday-maker who rushed to

the aid of a woman attacked

by a shark in Hawaii says he is

“fearless”.

North Beach resident Andy

Chapman was surfing at Mākaha

Beach on Oahu Island when a

woman was attacked by a shark

about 100m from him.

He paddled towards her after

she screamed for help, but before

he got there, she was pulled from

the water by other surfers and

lifeguards.

It is believed the 51-year-old

woman, a regular swimmer at

the beach, may have been attacked

by a 3m tiger shark. She

suffered gashes to her shoulder,

upper back and forearm.

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board member Tim Sintes has

known Mr Chapman for about

35 years and was a groomsman at

his wedding.

NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m.

Mr Sintes said Mr Chapman

was “fearless” and a real “down

to earth” guy.

“What he did in Hawaii did

not surprise me at all,” Mr Sintes

said.

“He would have been back in

the water the next day.”

Mr Chapman, 57, was on

holiday with his wife, Ineke, who

is the chairwoman of the North

Beach Residents’ Association.

Mr Chapman told the New

Zealand Herald the woman

looked as if she had been slit

open with a razor blade in about

three places and there was a lot

of blood.

“In the water, there is a definite

code of looking after others. A

swimmer on their own seems to

be a lot more vulnerable and also

will have more limbs in the water

acting as bait,” Mr Chapman

said.

He said he had never experienced

anything like this, but it

would not deter him from getting

back in the water.

Mr Sintes said the Chapmans

were keen surfers in both New

Brighton and Kaikoura, where

they go most weekends.

“Both of them have got this

incredible enthusiasm for life.

You hear the saying of work

hard, play hard, and that

would sum them up perfectly,”

he said.

A similar attack happened at

Mākaha Beach six months ago,

when a 10-year-old boy was

mauled by a shark.

SCARY: North Beach resident Andy Chapman rushed to the

aid of a woman who had been attacked by a shark while he

Encouraging ExcEllEncE in our community

The Principal’s Desk

Students enjoying and sharing their learning is

what i enjoy the most as Principal. This is evident

in events such as school productions. our recent

“Popstars the 90s Musical” production provided

students an opportunity to step outside their

comfort zone and perform in front of their peers,

family, and community. i was amazed at the talent

of our wonderful performers who sang those

familiar 90s musical sounds. i take this opportunity

to congratulate the cast, directors, and stagehands

on their contribution to wonderful and successful

Harry romana,

Principal

performances. i also congratulate our teachers and parents who helped

with rehearsals, costumes, and props. Thank you to you all.

Mairehau high School continues as a solid, viable co-educational school

in the east of christchurch. We continue working with other schools,

clusters, and community sector groups to develop a plan which will

enhance the provision of education for all students in christchurch. all

schools want students to access quality education outcomes, to access

quality teaching, and quality learning. We can provide a friendly nurturing

learning environment for all students. our students are our priority.

Mairehau high School is in a strong position to offer students

opportunities which will enable them to become decent, worthwhile

citizens of the world, people who will contribute to their communities.

Students who pass through our school gates, learn in our classrooms,

and access technology through our wireless internet provision will be

well set in the future.

Future of Mairehau High School property

Mairehau high School will be entering the ‘Master Planning building

stage’ this July. The Ministry of education (Moe), school and community

are expecting roll growth in the near future. as a school and community,

we are planning for the growth in our school.

The school has completed the Moe’s education Brief which provides

a framework for Mairehau high School to develop and document our

vision for delivering teaching and learning in the future and how that

translates into a property solution that enables and supports Mairehau

high School’s education vision.

The government’s investment in Mairehau high School is most

immediately a response to the earthquakes that have had a significant

impact on our schools and community. at the same time, it is important

that the educational community uses this unique investment wisely,

to ensure re-building provides the best possible platform for effective

teaching and learning into the future, informed by increasing knowledge

about how children and young people learn and what they need to learn

at school to prepare for their futures as connected, capable, life-long

learners.

i trust you are able to pass on to your friends and family, the opportunities

that a co-education school such as Mairehau high School can provide

for christchurch east. Thank you to everyone who attended our ‘open

evening’ and braved the cold winter night.

Harry Romana

Principal.

Open Evening

Thank you to all those

who attended our open

evening on Tuesday 31

May. Despite the cold and

dreary weather, many

prospective students

and their families braved

the elements to see and

enjoy what our wonderful

school has to offer.

Many parents and

members of our community commented on the helpfulness of our guides. it’s

our students who know our school best, and it was wonderful to hear many of

them telling prospective families their feelings towards our school; that they

loved being part of a small, community school with a true family feel.

if you missed our open evening for this year, please ring the office for a 2017

Prospectus and we will gladly send it on to you. if you would like to discuss

your child’s high school education with us, Mrs Shaw, the Principal’s secretary,

will make the necessary appointment.

adcock-Dinnington is

a keen flyer, both of

manned planes (he plans

on becoming an airline

pilot) and drones.

With permission from Mr

romana, hunter brought

his new drone in for

some aerial photos of

the school.

Smokefree Rockquest

The rockquest regional heats

were held on 21 May and there

were excellent performances from

our students.

rebekah Williams was great in

the solo section singing her own

composition. New Year 9 group

“heck i Don’t Know”, made up of

ella Peoples, ancke hurter and Tammy reynard, performed especially well.

‘indispute’, made up of Year 13 students lorne Joblin, Kaisie Van Dyk and

Fale Polo were also fantastic and were

selected for the rockquest regional

Final which was held on 1 July. Sadly

they didn’t move on from the regionals

but Kaisie said it was a great experience

and he was happy with getting as far as

they did.

Well done to you all.

Outdoor

Education

on Tuesday 7 June, the Senior outdoor education

class embarked on an overnight adventure to Mt

oxford. Faced with well-below-zero temperatures,

the first thing on the agenda was to light a bonfire

to keep us toasty – and the marshmallows of

course!

For dinner, students cooked spuds on the open

fire – some were boiled, some were baked, and

some made fries.

after a chilly night in the tents, we were up

at 5.30am for bacon, eggs, spaghetti and hot

chocolate before we attempted to climb Mt

oxford. By 8am, we were an hour into the climb

and we had the most eerily warm weather – and

we were stripping down the layers of clothing –

even though we were standing in a few inches of

snow. We made it half way up, and then Year 12

student Dallas had a run-in with a tree (literally),

and we decided it was best to make the tramp

down to camp. By this stage we were in a foot

of beautiful powdery snow – so we had an epic

snow fight before we departed. although we

were disappointed we could not continue to the

summit, we had an awesome time and we look

forward to our next adventure.

Popstars - The 90’s Musical

after 3 months of rehearsals, our drama production for

2016, ‘PoPSTarS – the 90’s musical’ was presented to

enthusiastic and welcoming audiences, both in the

morning matinee and evening performances.

The cast was brilliant, with a few new talents emerging

and our ‘seasoned professionals’ stole the show with

fantastic singing and acting.

The production was very well supported by the

community. Thank you to everyone who was involved.

Year 12 students pitch in to

help Christchurch community

an area of wetland damaged by fire in 2014 was restored to its former glory with help from Mairehau

high School students and the university of canterbury Volunteer army (SVa). in 2014, vandals drove a car

into halswell Quarry, destroying an area of native planting before setting fire to a section of boardwalk.

in March, Year 12 students Shilah Norman, Kodie North, and Madi Maxwell-Mcginn, alongside the uc

SVa, took on the restoration project as part of the SVa’s uc volunteer programme, and in the space

of a few hours transformed the wetland area. The uc programme encourages secondary students to

become leaders in their communities through volunteering while being mentored by SVa members.

Despite it being a rainy day the girls,

and other students from christchurch

schools, arrived eager to get to

work. one crew set about rebuilding

the damaged boardwalk, another

group cleared around young native

plantings and another group used

bark mulch to restore the pathway.

christchurch city council park rangers

Nigel Morritt and robbie hewson

worked alongside the volunteers.

“The students were full of energy

and enthusiasm for the project and

were a credit to their schools and the

organization”, they said.

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.

FLYING HIGH: Every day, between 11am and 4pm kites are flown on the beach near the New

HEALTH & BEAUTY

PEGASUS POST

Effective treatment for many

types of pain

Complementary medicine is becoming

increasingly sought after in New Zealand

as people become aware of the many

different methods of treating pain and ill

health that are available here.

Christchurch-based Chinese health

practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a

method of treatment, which she says has

as an immediate affect on a wide variety of

pains and health conditions. It is known

as ‘acupuncture without needles’.

Lan describes it as being similar to

reflexology in that the problem area on

the body is determined through pressure,

but is much more accurate.

Trained as a medical practitioner in

China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992

and began practising acupuncture in

1995. From that discipline she created her

acupuncture without needles, and uses

it to treat people of all ages with many

different types of pain in all parts of the

body. This can include arthritic pain, MS,

and pain from injury.

“For example, the treatment has been

very successful for people who have

painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan

says.

Acupuncture without needles is also

effective in restoring energy levels,

she says.

“As people age their energy is reduced,

and this can lead to other health

problems. The acupuncture without

needles treatment is like the body’s

battery being charged up again, so their

energy levels are restored, which in turn

helps overcome their health problems.”

Lan also uses it to treat depression

and anxiety, and says it can help with

addiction problems as well.

“After the treatment the person has no

cravings – because it treats the cause of

the addiction.”

She says the results are immediate,

though people may need several

treatments, depending on the extent

of their health problem, and while it

is slightly painful for few moments,

everyone can tolerate it.

Lan Xiao’s website, www.

drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes

videos of people whose health problems

have been overcome after receiving the

treatment.

Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers

Arms Road, and her hours are Monday,

Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to

5pm. To discuss your health issues or

make an appointment, phone 323 4168

or 027 231 8388.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Research

Supports

Eye Health

Nutritional researchers have discovered a range

of nutrients that are essential for eye health. Some

of the most essential nutrients that have been

shown to protect and even improve eye function

are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral that is low in

N.Z. soils and therefore in many of our foods.

Researchers believe selenium may help prevent

cataracts, macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and may also

improve dry eyes and general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage of the

population are low in. Zinc has been shown to

help protect the eyes from the damaging effects

of light as well as slow vision loss due to macular

degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Beta-carotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper have potent

antioxidant ability and help protect the eyes from

damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing nutrients

that have been shown in landmark research to

not only provide potent eye protection but may

even help reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and retina

from damage and reduce the risk of cataracts. They

also may help improve blood supply to the eye,

strengthen the small capillaries of the eye and may

help improve night vision, may alleviate many eye

ailments including eye fatigue that may be caused

by reading, driving and computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye pressure and

reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential for

correct eye function. It may also have a detoxifying

affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection. It

provides many nutrients, is rich in oligomeric

proanthocyanidins (OPC’s) that are potent

antioxidants that may protect eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic amount

should provide comprehensive eye protection, may

slow and possibly even help reverse eye damage

that could lead to loss of vision. All these nutrients

are available in an economical one a day easy to

swallow capsule.

SUPER CitriMax

CLINICAL STRENGTH GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

According to Dr. Oz an extract of Garcinia Cambogia, (a small

pumpkin-like fruit) called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax,

is the most effective & fastest working natural supplement to

support weight loss.

Researchers found it:

• Helps stop fat being made & stored in the body

• Suppresses appetite & cravings. Feel fuller for longer

• Increases energy levels & lean muscle mass

• Increases Serotonin levels in the brain, especially good for

emotional eaters. Serotonin may also improve mood & sleep.

• Improves cholesterol & blood lipid levels

Swanson Super CitriMax is a unique patented extract that

is highly bio-available & clinically proven for reliable results.

Care For Your Joints

They’re critical to remain

healthy and mobile

Refuse to accept joint pain and stiffness as part of life. Do

the work to maintain and support your joints to get the

best out of them for as long as possible.

Research from Johns Hopkins

University confirms that in the

treatment of arthritis, exercise and

physical activity has many benefits.

• Regular exercise helps keep

muscles around the joints strong,

decrease bone loss and control joint

swelling and pain.

• Strengthening the muscles

surrounding affected joints helps

to relieve pressure on the joint and

cartilage.

• Regular exercise helps replenish

lubrication of the joint cartilage and

reduces stiffness and pain.

• Lack of physical activity is

associated with increased muscle

weakness, joint stiffness, reduced

range of motion and fatigue

• Exercise needs to be directed at

the entire body and not just the joints

that are affected with arthritis.

The golden rule for joint health -

Keep moving!

The more you move

the less pain and

stiffness you will have.

PEGASUS POST

A Gut Feeling

Digestive health is becoming increasingly important

for improving our overall wellbeing. As there is a

distinct connection between our tummy and our

moods, immunity and even our behaviours, it pays

to follow your gut if you feel out of sorts with

these nutritional enhancer

Dietary fibre is made up of

three types and each play a

different role throughout the

digestive tract. It’s often a

case of balancing them all and not only

supplementing with just one. To ensure

you get enough fibre in your diet: women

should aim for 25 grams to 30 grams

and men 30 grams to 38 grams each day.

Soluble fibre are found in oats, psyllium,

vegetables, fruits with their skin on and

supplements like Metamucil. Insoluble

fibre can be found in wheat bran pasta

and quinoa. Resistant starch is contained

in cold cooked pasta, potatoes and firm,

fresh bananas.

Probiotics and prebiotic foods can help

keep the correct pH balance(acidity to

alkalinity) in our intestines. These ‘good’

bacteria assist with breaking down fibre

in the bowel and produce healthy stool

movements. Probiotics can be found in

supplements, cultured yoghurt, kombucha

drinks and fermented vegetables. Prebiotic

foods are Jerusalem artichokes and raw

garlic, leeks and onions.

Poor gut health could be caused by,

but not limited to, high stress levels,

caffeine, smoking or inadequate water

consumption. If you suffer from prolonged

periods of reflux, constipation, diarrhoea

or cramping and nausea, seek medical

advice. Your doctor may help identify

possible intolerances or allergies.

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo

With over 200 sites to browse, unique businesses to discover,

shopping, bargains and laughter, the Expo is the ultimate day

out for every woman.

One of the appeals the Expo has to

visitors is the variety of companies

involved with everything from

jewellery and shoes to activewear

and fitness to skincare and health

products to gourmet food and wine

and even a company offering plantbased

cooking classes for Kids &

Adults. There really is something for

everyone and all ages.

Renee Murray from NZME Events,

organiser of the Expo says “Our

aim is to have as wide of a range

of companies involved with the

Expo as possible. Women are all

different and their individual interests

are so diverse. One woman

may love the latest in makeup or

skincare but the woman beside

her may be more interested in

cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail

or sampling handmade cheese.

It’s great on the weekend to see

all the various women visit the

show, from teenagers to business

women, mothers to grandmothers

and friends simply enjoying each

other’s company. It’s becoming

more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together

as well, with the daughter, mother

and grandmother all enjoying the

show and spending the day with

each other.”

Brandhouse will exhibit at the Expo

for the first time with their range of

champagne, vodka, port and wines.

Popular at other Expo’s this year

has been the Royal Dragon’s elite

flavour vodka collection with some

flavours selling out. Introducing

the most tantalizing and unique

flavoured vodka collection of its time

flavours include Watermelon, Green

Apple, Passion Fruit, Chocolate and

Lychee… A great vodka collection

to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in

your favourite cocktail! Visit the

large Brandhouse site at the show

to sample from their fabulous range

and take home what you love.

Christinz Clothing will visit the show

for the first time, travelling from

Balclutha to showcase her selection

of Designer Clothing including;

pants, stunning tops, skirts, base

layers and jackets. A popular

item are her batwing sleeve tops with a

flattering shape through front to suit all

sizes and with pink, gold, navy, black

and silver in the colour range these tops

look great with jeans, skirts or leggings.

Christinz Clothing are located in the Expo

Fashion Zone.

The High Protein Breakfast Company

will travel all the way from Auckland with

their exclusive High Protein Muesli. Not

available in store yet this range of muesli

not only tastes great but helps with weight

management, health and fitness. Without

many of the sugars or fillers that so many

processed breakfast foods contain these

mueslis will keep you fuller for longer and

with flavours including

Berry, Peach &

Nectarine and Feijoa

you will want to buy

them all. Visit the High

Protein Breakfast

Company in the Expo

Taste Zone.
