FLYING HIGH: Burwood resident and New Zealand trampolining

representative Georgea Kelly makes the most of the newly opened Flip

Out Trampoline Arena. The much-anticipated arena opened last month on

Maces Rd, Bromley. A former polymer and rubber products warehouse,

the building has been transformed by owner Andrew Moss in the past few

months in preparation for its opening. The arena has six different sections to

choose from, including a foam pit, wall trampolines and a tricks area.

AFTER attending more

than 100,000 call outs in

its 108-year history, the

New Brighton Volunteer

Fire Brigade will pack

their bags and move to

Bexley.

In 2018, the brigade will

leave its Hawke St station

for a new $10 million site

on the corner of Anzac Dr

and Pages Rd.

The Wainoni Fire Brigade

has also been based

at the Hawke St station

since the earthquakes,

when the New Zealand

Fire Service assessed

the condition of stations

around the city.

Wainoni will join New

Brighton at the new facility

to be called Anzac Fire

Station. It will be a composite,

meaning it is made

up of both volunteers and

paid firefighters.

Fire service area commander

Dave Stackhouse

said moving the fire

station would give better

coverage and response

time to the eastern suburbs.

Mr Stackhouse said he

hopes the estimated $10

million station will open

in the final months of

2018.

“We’re very much

looking forward to that.

It’ll be the new premises

on Anzac Dr. We’ve

been planning the rebuild

of nine stations for quite

some time now,” he said.

a new sports hub that could have

futsal, basketball, netball, bowls

NEW PLAN: The Parklands bowling and rugby clubs have revealed plans for a new community sports hub.

PHOTO: GERAINT HOWELLS, CREATIVE INTENTIONS

Clubs team up for new sports hub

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

TWO CLUBS are joining forces

to bring a $1.5 million sports

hub to Parklands.

Parklands bowling and rugby

clubs have plans to build the

hub – which will include indoor

and outdoor facilities – at

Chadbury St beside Parkview

School.

The bowling club is currently

based in Chadbury St.

The proposal will see the car

park upgraded, with the greens

remaining, and the addition

of two adjacent pieces of land

owned by the city council but

leased to the clubs.

There are also plans to

relocate two classrooms from

the former Freeville School as

a club house and sports hall.

Representatives from a

working group presented

a development plan to the

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board last Monday.

Sports that could be played

at the facility may include

petanque, futsal, basketball,

netball as well as indoor and

outdoor bowls.

The project needs funding

from grants and public

donations to cover costs for the

relocation, placement, wiring

and plumbing of the two

buildings.

It is expected to cost about

$1.5 million.

The plans were approved

at the meeting and backed

by community board members.

The clubs received letters of

support from Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and two schools.

The two clubs have joined

forces for the last three years

after they were both hit hard in

the earthquakes.

Parklands Bowling Club vice

president Wayne Eden said

one positive feature of having

a large joint membership is the

help and support received from

within the clubs and the local

community.

“Help has already been offered

from people with a range of

skills and experience, which

will make a huge contribution

towards us achieving the

ultimate goal,” he said.

Working group chairman

Maurice Lawlor said, with help

from the Ministry of Education,

the clubs hope to get the two

classrooms in as soon as

possible.

The clubs are looking for

financial support to get their

project off the ground. For more

information, get in touch with

Mr Eden at wayne.eden@xtra.

In Brief

REGENERATION HUB

A new community hub opened

its doors in New Brighton Mall

yesterday. Its purpose is to give

residents access to information on

the area’s regeneration and plans.

The hub is staffed by agencies like

the city council, Development

Christchurch Ltd, and Regenerate

Christchurch. The hub will be

open Monday to Friday, from

10am to 4pm.

FLASHER IN SOUTHSHORE

Information is wanted by New

Brighton police on a man seen

flashing a woman and her

children in Southshore recently.

On September 18, a man was

seen driving over sand dunes

in Southshore and was spotted

flashing woman and children

soon after. Senior Sergeant Dave

Robertson said there has been

reports of people being flashed

around the sand dunes before.

If anyone has information, they

should phone police on 363 7400.

CAR CHARGING STATIONS

Two electric vehicle charging

stations are on their way to New

Brighton after a report from city

council staff was adopted by the

Burwood-Pegasus Community

Board last week. The two charging

ports will be installed in angled

parking spaces outside the New

Unfortunately, we just can’t

know it all and that is why

having veterinarians with extra

qualifications in a field ( who are

only to willing to offer help and

advice), is of enormous value

when we are faced with a difficult,

challenging cases.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

REFERRAL VETERINARY SERVICES

Recently I referred a 7 year old

English Springer Spaniel to an

orthopaedic surgeon at VSA in

Auckland for spinal surgery. I have

had personal experience with the

team at VSA and great results in the

past. Dusty is a patient we have seen

a lot of recently. He was recently

neutered and treated for an enlarged

prostate and more recently I have

examined and treated Dusty for what we believed

to be unrelenting lower back pain.

Dusty is the perfect patient, amenable to a lot of

manipulation and palpation, although he now

often freezes and drops when he sees me coming.

Previously Dusty has had CT scans, radiographs

and blood testing to try to understand why at

times he seems crippled with pain. He is unable to

run with other dogs, play vigorously, jump, swim

for long periods of time – in other words, “just be a

dog”. His onset of pain

is quick and he wears

his pain on his little

face. We have treated

Dusty with numerous

types of pain and

inflammation

modifying drugs

with no real

success, as well as

physiotherapy and

hydrotherapy.

Dusty’s owner

and I discussed in depth our next step

which had to be an MRI at St Georges Hospital

to determine whether Dusty was a surgical

candidate or not. Dusty’s owner is a nurse herself

and fully understands an accurate diagnosis is

crucial if we are to understand Dusty’s pain better

and do the best for him. Luckily it also helps to

have pet insurance, as MRI diagnostics and spinal

surgery are right up there in cost for the average

client. Dusty may make the move to the UK soon,

so I wanted to make real sure we were doing all

we could for him.

The staff at St Georges are helpful, knowledgable

and lovely with our canine patients. I regularly

travel with patients to sedate and monitor them

for their MRI which can

take up to an hour. It isn’t

painful but they have to

very still in order for the

radiologist to get good

pictures. Ear plugs are

inserted as the machinery

is very noisy.

In Dusty’s case, even I

could see the cause of

his severe pain. He had a

severe disc prolapse and

soft tissue hypertrophy at

the lumbosacral junction

( L7-S1) causing spinal

cord compression. His

L6-L7 disc space was also

moderately prolapsed.

The radiologist also

noted a congenital

abnormality of his aorta, an

incidental finding.

The surgeon in Auckland had access to this

MRI and could read the images. He concluded

that Dusty would benefit from spinal cord

decompression and stabilisation of the

lumbosacral disc space, which would allow Dusty

a far better quality of life.

The surgeon liased with Dusty’s owner

immediately and within weeks Dusty was flown

to Auckland for a referral consultation, operated

on successfully and is now

rehabilitating in Auckland post

operatively for 6 weeks, until the

follow up xrays show that there is

bony healing and stability of the

plates and screws. Dusty is also

receiving physiotherapy to help with

a quicker recovery.

A real success story for Dusty and his

family and it just goes to show that

the best veterinary medicine is often

a collaborative team effort, where our

primary objective is to successfully

cure, heal and care for our patients.

At McMaster & Heap we are also extremely lucky

to have the expertise and knowledge of Steve

Heap, in diagnosing and treating patients with Eye

diseases and Catherine Morganti, who regularly

preforms ultrasounds and endoscopy on cats

and dogs, allowing us more diagnostic options

to working up a sick patient. We also employ a

registered veterinary dentist, when required, to

perform root canal surgeries and pulpotomies on

teeth, when clients would rather save their dogs

teeth than us perform extractions.

Steve’s caseload at McMaster & Heap would be

80% eye referral work and much of this ends up

being operated on. Steve also

travels to Dunedin every 3 months

for 2 jammed packed days of eye

referral work and surgery. These

vets have invested time to develop

certain skills, knowledge and

expertise in a specialised area of

veterinary medicine and are of huge

help to us primary vets in providing

solutions and treatments with our

patients. We find our clients want

the best for their pets ( as we do) and

welcome referral vet services.

For any referral advice please contact

Mayor cops criticism

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

BURWOOD-Pegasus

Community Board members

have hit out at Mayor Lianne

Dalziel in frustration at a bid to

get more projects in the east up

and running.

The board’s submission to the

Annual Plan, which allocates

funding, included 21 projects

and problems for the eastern

suburbs that it wanted fixed.

Ms Dalziel sent a letter to

the board in response to their

submission, which was read at a

recent board meeting.

Of the 21 projects put forward,

only five were granted.

They included – $600,000 for

Marine Pde repairs, Waitikiri

Square landscaping, traffic

management around schools,

money from sale of 11.5 ha QE II

Park to Ministry of Education for

future developments; flexibility

over extra pool at the former QE

II site.

Board members said Ms Dalziel

showed very little support for its

proposals leaving the board “utterly

disappointed.”

Those projects that missed out

included upgrades of estuary

stop banks, a motor home dump

IN ACTION: A group of five North Beach rowers took to the

water for an 87km fundraiser at the weekend.

12hr rowing fundraiser

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

FIVE NORTH Beach lifesavers

took 12 hours to complete an

epic 87km row – and raised

money to help save endangered

dolphins in the process.

The group took a 7m

traditional surf lifesaving row

boat to Akaroa on Saturday, and

made their way back to North

Beach.

Led by North Beach Surf

Lifesaving Club member Rob

McCaib, the group had a $3000

goal for the “kiwis of the sea”,

the hector’s dolphin and maui’s

dolphin.

“We have the North Beach

Surf Lifesaving Club’s 100th

anniversary in October, so [the

row was] sort of tied in with that,

and we’re also raising money to

save maui’s dolphins,” he said.

But they’ve well surpassed

their goal, as the team’s current

total sits at $9893, which

includes a $4500 donation from

Aqualine, a sponsor of the row.

Mr McCaib thought the row

could be the first time it has been

done in a surf lifesaving row

boat in a single day.

“I don’t know of anyone who

has done it before, at least not

in one day. It took us about 12

hours. At the halfway point we

swapped the driver, who steers

the boat, at Okains Bay and

then carried on from there,” he

said.

Through their row, the group

hope to gain exposure and draw

people to the givealittle page,

where they can donate to their

cause. Go to www.givealittle.

Candidates rebuild priorities

Which do you think should take priority in the

rebuild of the Burwood Ward – roading and

bridges, or decisions being made about the

future of the residential red zone? And why?

Which of these two options do you think the city

council will prioritise? And why?

Cruize

Erueti:

Burwood

Ward city

council

candidate

We have

all seen the

progress for

our roads and

bridges, whether we are happy

or unhappy about it, the decision

has already been made to prioritise

these works. We now have

an awesome opportunity to start

afresh and prioritise the red zone.

I stand in favour of an investment

into this zone and of supporting

great initiatives to lead our city

forward into a future of innovation

and self-sustainability, while

being aware of our carbon footprint.

If we manage to support

the right candidates into council,

we will have the means to push

forward into the future that our

city wants. This will take a strong

voice and work with the people.

Glenn

Livingstone:

Burwood

Ward city

councillor

candidate

Attending to

the basics first,

roading and

bridges should

take priority, although in some

cases, both go hand-in-hand.

New Brighton Rd, for instance,

may have to be pulled back and

elevated away from the river, in

conjunction with permanent stop

banks, as part of residential red

zone decisions. The council will

prioritise roads and bridges, in

association with NZTA, as joint

funders, as that is a core responsibility.

Though the council is

integrally bound up in decisions

over future residential red zone

use, it is Regeneration Christchurch’s

role to formulate plans, in

partnership with the community

and council.

Elections 16

Tim Baker:

Burwood

Ward

community

board

candidate

The city

council

doesn’t own

the red zone,

so decisions on this are not

ours. The city council can have

opinions and the board can be

involved with decisions. The city

council will need stop banks and

storm water retention basins

etc in the red zone. However, it

may be five years before the red

zone is physically started, or if

earlier in parts, it will be in small

parts of the red zone, possibly

Southshore. Therefore, in the immediate

future, the priority will

be roads.

Sela

Faletolu-

Fasi:

Burwood

Ward

community

candidate

The priority

of the rebuild

of the Burwood Ward should be

roading and bridges because it is

key to our transport infrastructure.

It is used by all residents

and others outside of the ward

to travel to and from work, and

bring together our community,

family and friends. Getting the

roads and bridges fixed first will

reduce transit times, congestion,

and bring a sense of normality

back to the area. I believe

city council will prioritise the

roads and bridges for the same

reasons, knowing that the red

zone is already in the process of

consultation and planning for

the future.

PEGASUS POST

Helping high school students excel

April McLennan is 19-years-old and has set up

her own trust to help high school students to

pursue and excel in work they are passionate

about. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding

about setting up her own social enterprise, life

being home-schooled and her trip to the Global

Entrepreneurship Summit in Palo Alto, United

States

You have set up an initiative to

help other Christchurch high

school students. Why did you

set up Limitless Charitable

Trust?

Last year was my final year of

school and I noticed so many

people I knew were overwhelmed

with career and study path options

and were unsure on what

way to go. At the same time I

knew people who did work they

were really passionate about and

were working to their strengths

and they could talk about their

jobs all day. I just thought how

cool it would be if we could all

do work we are that passionate

about.

How will this initiative set

you up for your ideal career?

Basically we have a two-part

programme and it is designed

to equip students with the confidence,

awareness and opportunities

to pursue what they are

passionate about. We are starting

year 10 students with a Limitless

Charitable Trust two-day conference

in October. That includes

talking to inspiring speakers.

We will have a diverse range of

speakers including Kiwibank

Young New Zealander of the

Year for 2015 Guy Ryan, Prime

Minister John Key’s chief science

adviser Dr Victoria Metcalf and

entrepreneur Hannah Duder.

The Zion Dance Studios will be

performing. After the conference

we will connect people to an

online portal. It will connect students

to opportunities that are

relevant to them. For instance if

they were passionate about the

environment and are looking for

work experience we can connect

them to the organisation.

Are high schools setting

students up well enough for the

workforce?

I think it is really challengingwe

do live in a world that is

rapidly changing. The workforce

is changing and it can be difficult

for a traditional school to keep

up with that. I feel that knowing

who you are, what your strengths

are and what your values are

important. It should be a priority

and that is why we are focusing

on that area. I think it is important

for students to know what it

is like to go to university.

Do you have a view on

NCEA?

Being home-schooled I haven’t

done NCEA but I feel that

maybe the biggest issue facing

education is that it is not just

academics that matters. It is your

people skills, it is your ability to

adapt which will be increasingly

relevant. I feel there is a real need

for a system that holistically addresses

all areas.

What was it like being homeschooled?

I guess it was really different.

I enjoyed it. I think the reason

I enjoyed it was because it gave

me the freedom to explore what I

was interested in. My high school

years were more like university.

Do you feel like you missed

out on the social side of high

school?

Being involved with lots of

groups and clubs didn’t mean I

missed out. It gives you an opportunity

to meet people from a wide

range of ages, backgrounds and

perspectives. You make an effort

to be part of those groups. I was

involved in World Vision New

Zealand groups which I meet a lot

of cool people through.

How has arranging the conference

been going?

It really stuck me in starting

INSPIRING: April McLennan, 19, has set up her own trust to

help high school students pursue jobs they are passionate

about.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Limitless how many generous

people are. We have got about

50 people who are speaking and

volunteering their time at the

conference. We are also a charitable

trust. I have three trustees

who have great experience in

their respective professions.

What got you interested in

social enterprise?

I went to the Festival For The

Future programme last year.

They bring together a whole

group of people who are innovators

or thinkers passionate about

a better future. Social enterprise

was talked a lot about there. A

lead-on from the Festival of the

Future was the programme Live

the Dream which is a social enterprise

accelerator programme.

You go into the programme with

a problem you see in the world

and in nine weeks they help you

develop a solution. Limitless is

what I developed over the summer

with the programme.

Tell me about your trip to

Palo Alto in June?

It was amazing. There were

incredible speakers. US President

Barack Obama and CEO of

Facebook Mark Zuckerberg

spoke. I also enjoyed meeting

entrepreneurs from around the

world and hearing about their

experiences. It was amazing

in spite of our differences how

much we have in common. After

the programme I connected with

people including a guy from

Montreal and a lady in Jordan

who had really similar enterprises

to Limitless.

What was the most inspiring

story or person you came

across?

I think meeting this lady from

Jordan who had been working

on a similar concept to Limitless.

Wanting to get girls on a

course she had been working on

for 15 years. She started with a

business that was separate to the

education system and now she is

creating curriculums that are being

used in the education system

and works with a big team. It was

cool how one idea has developed

and made an awesome impact.

Also hearing President Obama

was an obvious stand-out. A key

moment in my life. He spoke

about the biggest issues of today

and how he sees the entrepreneurial

spirit of being able to

start your own business to create

solutions to problems to where

you live. He spoke about how the

Government needs to step up

and make it easier for people to

start their own businesses.

What do you like to do in

your spare time when you are

not setting up new businesses?

I quite enjoy playing hockey

and photography and I am still

involved with World Vision. Just

spending time outdoors with

friends is what I love.

High School.

Sunny skies, mild temperatures and good snow made for another

great day for the annual Aranui High School ski and snowboard

trip to Mt Hutt. Students enjoyed the magic carpet ride on the

learners slope and some ventured higher up the mountain after a

lesson. Everyone enjoyed experiencing the mountain environment

and having fun in the snow.

Tongan Language Week celebrated

Malo e lelei. This year has been a

special year for Aranui as this is the

first time the school has celebrated

Tongan Language Week. There are

currently seven Tongan students and

one Tongan teacher at Aranui High.

There was a lot of help from students

and teachers who wanted to

be a part of the Tongan community,

which was awesome. The group

performed two Tongan songs at assembly.

It was very touching as this

is Aranui High School’s last year and

our first ever Tongan Language Week

celebration. Our Tongan community

has really made us proud.

Comedy duo tells of realising their dream

The 2016 Aranui High School formal

took place at the Linfield Rugby Clubrooms

on Friday, September 9.

This year’s theme was “Into the

Woods” and the venue was transformed

into a forest wonderland.

Students and staff enjoyed a night of

awesome music and food as well as

the chance to get down on the dance

floor and make some lasting memories

to take away.

The students looked amazing in their

finery and the teachers didn’t look

to shabby either. Much thanks to all

who helped make the night one to

remember.

A comedy duo called The Laughing Samoans visited Aranui

High School on Friday, September 16.

The whole school attended the performance, along with

students and staff from Wainoni School.

The duo, Ete and Tofiga, told their story of how they’ve

managed to achieve their dreams of being fulltime entertainers

through determination, perseverance and teamwork.

This message, along with the performance of a very funny

skit from their latest hit show called “Island Time”, was very

well received. The hour-long session was enjoyed by staff

and students, who all left the hall with huge smiles from the

experience.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | SEPTEMBER 2016

EQC confirms Canterbury staff numbers for 2017

The Earthquake Commission (EQC) has

confirmed the shape of the organisation

for 2017, including the number of positions

in Canterbury.

“As our work in Canterbury enters its final phase

in 2017, we will obviously need to be smaller.

From January 2017, EQC will be an organisation

of about 458 people. Of these, at least 216 will

be based in Christchurch,” EQC Chief Executive

Ian Simpson says.

“The new structure retains a core of specialist staff

who will continue to meet the needs of our

remaining Canterbury customers.

“In 2017, EQC will continue to resolve remedial

inquiries on properties where we have managed a

repair, and to resolve claims for drains damaged by

the earthquakes. There is also a range of

administrative and financial tasks to be completed,”

Mr Simpson says.

Remedial inquiries

An important focus for EQC in 2017 will be resolving

the remaining remedial inquiries from Canterbury

customers who have had a managed repair.

With about 68,000 managed repairs carried out as

part of the Canterbury Home Repair Programme

(CHRP) largely completed, EQC and Fletcher EQR

have jointly agreed a new approach to completing

the remaining remedial work in Canterbury.

From January 2017, EQC will expand its role

managing all remedial inquiries to include

management of any resulting remedial repairs.

This means it will liaise with customers and

contractors to complete any additional work, where

it’s required.

“The new approach will streamline decision making

by bringing all the elements of resolving remedial

inquiries into one organisation,” Mr Simpson says.

Fletcher has agreed to continue its role in 2017 but

likely with a smaller team and a focus on managing

any underfloor work arising from the joint CHRP

subfloor review. More detailed proposals on this

will be finalised over the next month or two.

As well as its work in Canterbury for 2017, EQC

needs to be ready to respond to any future natural

disaster events anywhere in New Zealand and

continue its work of negotiating and managing

natural disaster reinsurance for the country. EQC

will also continue settling the average 5,000 to

EQC Chief Executive Ian Simpson

8,000 natural disaster claims received nationally

each year, funding research to the tune of $16

million per year, and educating the public on

natural hazards and how to mitigate them.

3,000 kids descend on the Alpine Fault

Expert Sam and teacher Shelley talk about tsunami risk on the West Coast.

EQC’s newest virtual field trip,

“Geohazards”, was launched

last month with 130 classes

taking part (that’s over 3,000

Kiwi kids). The CORE Education

LEARNZ virtual field trips allow

New Zealand’s school children to

visit some of our most fascinating

locations without having to leave

the classroom. From Cape

Reinga to the Bluff – we’ve got

you covered.

A LEARNZ teacher travels alongside

subject experts to go on location

and communicate their

experiences with students through

online video and audio feeds.

The trips are designed to help

improve understanding of

geohazards, how we as a nation

manage those hazards, and to raise

awareness of EQC’s role in helping

build New Zealand’s resilience.

Last month’s trip was the ninth

funded by EQC and it explored

earthquakes, landslips and tsunami

on the West Coast as well as what

might happen when the Alpine

Fault next ruptures.

On the Coast, LEARNZ teacher

Shelley Hersey joined Alistair

Davies, a natural hazards PhD

student from the University of

Canterbury, and Dr Sam Hampton,

organiser of geology field

programmes in New Zealand and

University of Canterbury lecturer.

They showed students where you

can see the Alpine Fault in the

landscape, they pointed out scars

created by past earthquakes and

explained how tsunami, in lakes as

well as the sea, could be triggered

by quakes.

All our field trips are created so

that teachers can continue to use

them anytime. To experience this

virtual field trip and more, visit

$25million paid out for Feb 2016 quake claims

The Earthquake Commission has passed the

halfway mark for settling the February 2016

earthquake claims, says EQC’s February

2016 Event Response Manager, Jayne Lapin.

Ms Lapin says that of the total 14,574

claims received for the 14 and 29 February

earthquakes this year, followed by the

aftershocks, EQC has resolved 8,595

by cash settlement of just over $25 million

as at 19 September.

“You can tell that Cantabrians know what is

and isn’t earthquake damage, because up to

75% of the claims received so far have been

accepted, and average $4,761 per claim.

“With the help of customers providing most

information up front – claims are taking an

average of three weeks to reach settlement.”

she said.

Ms Lapin says it is heartening to see that the new

approach which uses both on site and phonebased

assessments has empowered customers to

provide their earthquake damage data,

supported by photographs, was working well.

“We have been surveying every customer who

has been through the process and whose claims

have been resolved – whether their claims were

accepted or declined. We wanted to see how

the process worked so we could make changes

as we went where we needed to.

“To date, 87% agreed that EQC valued and used

their time wisely when dealing with them

through the claims process.

EQC will have contacted almost every customer

to discuss the details of their February claims by

the end of September to book their assessment.

“This means that, other than people who delay

their claim or whom we can’t get hold of, we will

meet our target to resolve all claims by the end of

2016, hopefully earlier,” Ms Lapin said.

EQC is continuing to work with customers who

have lodged claims from the Canterbury sequence

earthquakes, including those in the Canterbury

Home Repair (CHRP) and land programmes, and

the settlement of the February claims will not slow

the progress of these programmes.

EQC sets out

process for

remedial requests

The Earthquake Commission (EQC) has streamlined

its process for handling new remedial requests from

customers received from 1 August, 2016.

EQC’s Head of Dwelling Settlement, Michael Price, says

the new process aims for faster resolution with customers

having the opportunity to provide information upfront and

state their preference for a cash settlement or a managed

repair where remedial work is required.

The changes have been introduced after positive

customer feedback on the process used to manage

claims from the February 2016 earthquake, where

customers had the opportunity to submit more

information upfront to enable quicker turnaround.

“Many customers going through the February 2016

claims management process are positive or very positive

about their experience,” Mr Price says.

“EQC will now use this approach for new remedial

requests, and customers will be asked to send in

information such as photographs and builders’ quotes.”

Mr Price says while cash settlement will provide a quicker

resolution, it may not suit everyone.

“So if a customer prefers that a contractor do the work,

then EQC will arrange for that to happen during 2017.

EQC’s Community Contact Team and independent

customer advocate groups will be available to support

any cash-settled customers who aren’t confident in

sourcing their own contractors,” says Mr Price.

Of the approximate 6,900 open remedial requests

currently on EQC’s books, 3,000 properties have been

identified as not being able to have any remedial repair

completed before 2017. The new process, while largely

designed for new remedial requests, will be available to

these customers also and EQC is making contact with

them to ask if they would prefer a cash settlement or wait

for a managed repair during 2017.

Pianos

Inspired by old world craftsmanship and the artistry of Italian design,

Palatino takes its name from a central hill in Rome where ancient emperors

built their palaces. Palatino builds pianos based on the pursuit of “Quality

not Quantity.” With this mission in mind, we have imported the highest

quality components from around the world.

Canadian white spruce is imported for soundboards, Roslau strings from

Germany; beech wood from France for grand piano rims and Renner

hammers from Germany on the Concert Series pianos. These are all

components found in some of the most expensive pianos in the world.

Play one and see for yourself – from design to construction, from the

studio to the concert hall, Palatino is truly a World Class Piano.

Encouraging ExcEllEncE in our community

From the Deputy

Principal’s Desk

Whanau Evening

on Thursday 1 September, the school hosted over

110 people at a very significant Whanau and families

evening in the school hall.

The school’s ‘Building on Success’ Focus Team of

teachers, superbly led by Ms angela Marshall (art

and gaTe), designed, consulted about, and prepared

this evening as part of their work in engaging our

families, and building our relationships with them.

The focus, of course, is always to improve

communications with whanau and families, as we all

work to meet the learning, cultural, and other needs of our students.

The particular focus for this event was on strengthening our bonds with our Maori and

Pacific communities, including cook islands, Samoan, Tongan and Fijian indian families.

The evening began with a formal welcome to

everyone from Mr. Bell, Deputy Principal, and

Phoenix Neilson

then an introduction to our student leaders

for the evening, Kavita Pillay (Fijian indian

New Zealander), anahera Koopu (NZ Maori),

Phoenix Neilson (NZ Maori), and Sebastian

anae-ah Sue (Samoan New Zealander).

These young leaders ran the evening with

confidence and style, introducing items

and guest speakers, presenting karakia

(prayer) and orders of service for an amazing

three course meal, and, finally, providing

acknowledgments at the end.

Staff pitched in to help with food purchasing, preparation and service, the setting of

tables in the hall, and the all-important clean-up at the end of the evening.

our guests, henare Te aika (teacher at Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Te Whanau Tahi and

ex-pupil of Mairehau high) and alana Batcheler (Pacific liaison officer at university of

canterbury), spoke eloquently about their own learning journeys as Maori and Pasifika

respectively, and encouraged our students to set lofty but attainable goals.

a number of our students and their families contributed with musical items, which

enhanced a truly memorable evening.

Families spoke with humility and appreciation about the school’s genuine efforts to

connect with them. The hope now is for the school to have an evening of this scale every

two years in order to support the learning aspirations of our Maori and Pacific youth.

The school acknowledges the wonderful work of Ms. Marshall and the team of teachers,

trainee teachers, support staff and students who made this evening possible.

Jo Hayes National List MP based in Christchurch East

Overhaul of family violence laws

The Government’s review of the 20-year-old Domestic

Violence Act is resulting in sweeping changes to family

violence legislation.

Ministers and departments across 16 portfolios are

working together to redesign how New Zealand’s system

prevents and responds to family violence, Jo Hayes said.

“The fact is that we need to act sooner to keep victims

safe, and we need to act earlier to change perpetrator

behaviour.”

While reducing family violence incidents requires all

New Zealanders to think differently, Jo Hayes says that

the Government is taking the lead to drive change.

The legislation is intended to be introduced to Parliament

in early 2017.

Boost for Enviroschools

The Government is continuing to back its environmental

focus by confirming a further six-years’ funding to the

amount of $11.4 million for the Toimata Foundation,

which implements the Enviroschools and Te Aho Tu Roa

programmes.

Minister for the Environment Hon. Dr Nick Smith made

the announcement at Christchurch East’s Waitakiri School

on 30 August, with Associate Minister of Conservation

Hon. Nicky Wagner and Jo Hayes in attendance.

At the same time, the government released a refreshed

National Strategy for Environmental Education for public

feedback.

“The strategy focuses on strengthening environmental

work through science and linking to environmental

work outside of schools,” Jo Hayes said.

To have your say on the strategy, visit www.doc.govt.nz.

I’m Jo Hayes, National’s list MP based in Christchurch East.

I love being a part of this wonderful, tight-knit Christchurch East

community. There’s so much going on that I just want to share a few

highlights with you of what our community and Government are

working on achieving together.

Politicians make a sporting difference

Politicians ditched their suits for rugby shorts and netball skirts

in Christchurch on 3 September, to raise money for charity.

Parliamentary invitational

teams played Canterbury

Legends Teams in the

two sports, hosted at

Christ’s College. More

than $20,000 was raised

for local Christchurch

charities Hohepa Trust

and 0800 Hungry.

Christchurch East’s bumpy roads on CCC’s agenda

About a third of the $2.2 billion cost of fixing Christchurch’s

earthquake-damaged infrastructure has been spent in the city’s

east. About 10 per cent of the total bill has been spent on roads.

Whilst SCIRT will wind up at year’s end, Christchurch City Council

has budgeted $100 million over the next 10-years to smooth the

most bumpy roads across the city.

Get out and vote!

Your voting papers for local government elections should have

arrived in the post, and are due by 8 October. Jo Hayes says

it’s important to vote. “This is your opportunity to choose a local

government that will make big decisions about Christchurch over

the next three years, so you need to know who you are voting for.”

There’s even an app for that: visit www.ccc.govt.nz and download

“Celect” to access candidate profiles from your phone.

Celebrating culture in Christchurch

Jo Hayes was thrilled to

be invited to the national

launch of New Zealand

Chinese Language Week

at Avonhead School

on 11 September. “It’s

wonderful to see such

a bright and vibrant

celebration of the

different cultures and

ethnicities in our country.”

Let’s talk

Tips for untreated

hearing loss

Hearing is a sense that many of us

take for granted. Throughout our lives, we

subject our ears to loud sounds–music,

power tools, lawn mowers, air travel–

without using ear protection. regrettably,

this can cause hearing loss. also, the

natural aging process generally results

in hearing loss. even certain illnesses

and medications can adversely affect our

hearing. Unfortunately, hearing loss that

occurs from such causes is permanent.

The good news is, even if you already

have a little hearing loss, it’s never too

late to preserve your hearing for the

years ahead. The first thing you can do is

protect your ears in noisy environments.

also, avoid using cotton swabs to clean

your ears. and, make it a priority to get

a baseline hearing screening to see if

hearing loss has already occurred.

if hearing loss is found during your

hearing evaluation, it could be due to

excess ear wax or infection. This type of

hearing loss is reversible. if hearing loss

stems from chronic exposure to loud

noise, aging, or certain illnesses and

medications, hearing aids are the best way

to preserve your good hearing.

The great news about today’s hearing

aids is how small and easy to wear they

are. Modern digital hearing aids use

super-tiny microprocessor technology–

making them virtually invisible when

worn. Hearing aids can help almost all

degrees of hearing loss–from a little to a

lot. and, by stimulating your brain with

sound that might not otherwise reach it,

hearing aids help keep your brain active,

which lowers your risk for cognitive

diseases, such as dementia.

if you suspect you may have hearing

loss, don’t ignore it. neglecting a hearing

loss can have a snowball effect–making it

grow bigger, faster than necessary.

Here are 10 ways you can limit hearing

damage and preserve good hearing:

1. Understand the sound levels of the

noises in your environment.

2. Learn about proper ear protection.

There are many kinds on the market

today, ranging from custom ear molds to

foam plugs and more.

3. Put physical distance between you

and loud noise when it is present. if

possible, stand at an angle from the noise,

not directly in front of it.

4. Take breaks when you are exposed

to noise.

5. When listening to music through

headphones or earbuds, keep the volume

low-to-medium.

6. Know the signs of hearing loss, and

measure yourself against them.

7. schedule a baseline hearing

evaluation. Hearing loss is on the rise

among Baby Boomers and young people.

it’s never too early to get your hearing

checked, but don’t wait past age 50.

8. Have your hearing evaluated by a

professional licensed by your state.

9. if you have hearing loss caused by a

reversible condition, take steps to

correct it.

10. if any permanent hearing loss is

diagnosed, choose hearing aids to slow it

down, and preserve good hearing.

it’s never too early to get your

hearing checked, but don’t wait

past age 50.

WANTED

THE shared title of the Christchurch Casino “The

Jazz Library” Charity Poker Event champion for

2016 went to REACH Child Cancer represented by

Nick Henare and to Heart Kids Canterbury

represented by Pat Lodge. Lynne Taylor took an

admirable third place on behalf of the Diabetes

Christchurch Inc.

The Jazz Library Charity Poker Event was held

by Christchurch Casino with $10,000 up for grabs

for the eleven deserving charities to play for. The

event was held on Thursday 15th September in

Sixty6 on Peterborough. The multipurpose

function venue had a prohibition theme with a

library at the front entrance and a speak-easy

below, including “Myrtle”, the 1929 Austin 7C- Cab

Van from by Happy Tours and scintillating

dancing and entertainment throughout the

evening by the talented Epic Entertainment team.

The invited guests in their 1920’s & 30’s

ensembles relaxed with the sultry jazz tones of the

“River City Jazz Men” and enjoyed learning to play

black jack and roulette with some even testing

their croupier skills, all of which combined to

create a fun atmosphere throughout the evening

and a memorable occasion. Mike King was a

masterful MC, adding humour, energy and poker

knowledge to the tournament.

With $10,000 at stake for three lucky charities,

competition at the tables was fierce as even though

this was a fun gaming event the players soon

realised they were playing in a structured poker

tournament and got their game faces on! The top

eleven players then competed at the final table to

play off for the top three spots to take home the

cash for their charity; finalists only found out

who they were playing on behalf of once they had

played their last chip – creating an exciting energy

amongst players and viewers alike.

The eleven charities who were represented at

this event were the Cystic Fibrosis Association,

Ronald McDonald House, Child Cancer
