CITY TO SEA: An artist’s impression of the proposed

Avon-Otakaro Forest Park. ​

Pioneering

family offers

to buy some

red zone land

TOP OF THE SCHOOL: After five years of hard work and dedication to their schoolwork, Sean

Takai from Shirley Boys’ and Hannah Everingham from Marian College were awarded dux of

their schools for their efforts. Shirley and Marian held their annual senior prizegiving evenings

last week, celebrating the high achievers of the school year. Proxime accessit, or second to the

dux, was awarded to Boris van Bruchem at Shirley and Bobbi Braxton at Marian. Other notable

awards on the night were given for sports, academic, cultural and arts.

A DESCENDANT of

Canterbury’s pioneering Deans

family has offered to buy red

zone land to get the proposed

Avon-Otakaro Forest Park off

the ground – and he hopes others

will follow suit.

Hamish Monro, a great, great

grandson of John Deans, farms

in East Sussex, England.

He believed there was a shortage

of native forest in Canterbury

and wanted to build on his family’s

legacy at Riccarton Bush by

buying “at least an acre or more”

of red zone land to become part

of the forest park.

“With suitable covenants in

place the sale of parcels of land

would produce a return for the

Crown and help make the [forest

park] project self-sustaining,” Mr

Monro said.

“It is taking otherwise pretty

dubious ‘housing’ land and recreating

native, or semi-native,

woodland rather than repeat

housing which will always

be subject to flooding and other

risks.”

Mr Monro said he was yet to

raise the idea with the Government

or anyone outside the

Avon-Otakaro Forest Park group

and would not pre-empt how

much money he was willing to

pay.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.......................................3, 5

SOUTH BRIGHTON residents

have had a lot to deal with in

the past six years – earthquake

damage, flooding and coastal

erosion LIM notices.

For months now, residents

have called for the city council to

replace the emergency stopbanks

along the estuary. Not only that,

as we have reported previously,

the South New Brighton Domain

estuary boardwalk has slowly

crumbled away.

It will be then hard for some to

comprehend why on Sunday across

the estuary, a new $8 million

seawall and pathway on Beachville

Rd, Redcliffs, was opened.

There are undoubtedly some

sound reasons why a lovely seawall

is being put up around Redcliffs

while the stopbanks just get an

upgrade in South Brighton.

Doesn’t make it any easier to

swallow though.

Pioneering family offers to buy some red zone land

FOREST PARK: Avon-Otakaro’s forest park vision could become

reality with the help of the Monro family.

•From page 1

“[I] feel it should be rather less

than open market agricultural

[land] to reflect its lack of financial

productivity and the covenants

that it will have ensuring

it remains as woodland,” he said.

Mr Monro (right) said the size

of plots could be arranged to suit

purchasers, with a quarter acre

section a possible minimum.

“Some people may want to buy

back their old house sites for example,”

he said.

“The wetland area might need

to be more of a co-operative venture

with shares of the wetland

not specific areas sold.”

Mr Monro made the offer

after seeing a promotional video

for the public native forest and

wetlands which has been shared

widely on Facebook.

Regenerate Christchurch chief

executive Ivan Iafeta said it was

still too early to comment on specific

proposals for the red zone

but he acknowledged “the huge

amount of work and passion people

like Mr Monro had invested”

in their proposal.

“The source and availability of

funding is an important consideration

for future use decisions

and will need to be assessed on a

case-by-case basis,” Mr Iafeta said.

Stopbank worry still high

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

UPGRADES ARE being made

on emergency stopbanks

that line the Avon-Heathcote

estuary, but residents say it’s not

enough.

The city council is in the

early stages of designing ways to

reduce the impact of flooding in

the area, by looking to upgrade

existing stopbanks.

Previously, Pegasus Post reported

that South New Brighton

residents felt unsafe due to the

estuary’s emergency stopbanks

eroding, and have lobbied

the city council to repair and

“urgently install more” flooding

protection.

The city council is talking to

residents, and is in the early design

stages of the upgrades, but

has a budget of $30,000 assigned

to it this year, with a further $3.9

million to come next year.

The stopbanks were installed

along the Avon-Heathcote estuary

and Avon River banks under

emergency legislation by the

Canterbury Earthquake Recovery

Authority after the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

In September this year, the

Burwood-Pegasus Community

WORRY RISING: The city council will upgrade existing stopbanks this year but will not look to

install new ones until next year at least. South Brighton Residents Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson (right) says it is a good start, but not enough.

PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

Board received a letter from

Mayor Lianne Dalziel, saying

installing estuary stopbanks was

not budgeted for in the annual

plan. She said it would be put in

the 2017/2018 budget.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Linda

Stewart said it is good to see the

city council commit to work on

stop banks, but only addressing

an area south of the Bridge St

bridge is not good enough.

She wanted the areas north

and south of Bridget St covered

also.

“Yes it is a good start, no

doubt, but I’m saying it’s not

enough,” she said.

City council’s head of strategic

policy Helen Beaumont said

there will be work taking place

north of Bridge St as well, but it

is just “to maintain the existing

temporary stopbanks.”

South Brighton Residents

Association chairman Hugo

Kristinsson agreed with Ms

Stewart, and wanted to see the

city council deal to water seeping

under the stopbanks.

“It certainly helps, but I would

like to see the engineering design

and how they plan to deal

with the groundwater. In the existing

stopbanks, when it is high

tide the water almost reaches

their top and filters under them

also,” he said.

Chairwoman to push for projects

• By Fraser Walker-Pearce

LOCAL BODY politician

newcomer Kim Money is ready

to shake things up on the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board.

Mrs Money was unanimously

voted in as the board’s chairwoman

last Monday.

She will look to push on with

projects like the North Beach

promenade and installing more

flood protection.

Previously, the Pegasus Post

reported that the $2.4 million

promenade project was in jeopardy,

and may not go ahead as

originally planned. It is planned

to run from the New Brighton

Pier along the sand dunes to

North Beach.

Mrs Money said she would

fight for the project to continue

and met with Development

Christchurch Ltd yesterday in

relation to the project.

In October’s local body elections,

she along with deputy

chairman Tim Sintes were voted

in. Mr Sintes received 3892 votes

and Mrs Money received 2978.

Former Burwood-Pegasus

Community Board chairwoman

Andrea Cummings received

2776 votes and was not reelected.

Mrs Money said she is “very

optimistic” about the community’s

future.

“I’ve been involved with the

community for the last 30 years

. . . we have such a creative and

wonderful community, so we’ve

got to think big,” she said.

Mrs Money aims to include

children and the youth of the

community in decision-making

in the term.

Coastal-Burwood deputy

chairman Tim Sintes said Ms

Money would do a great job as

chairwoman, and will be looking

to follow up on projects that

were started by the previous

board.

“Things like getting the South

New Brighton and Southshore

estuary edge finished, so people

can move ahead knowing their

future is secure. Basically just

finishing off what we started,”

he said.

Meanwhile, Sally Buck has

been named as the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board chairwoman.

Ms Buck, a former city

councillor for the Fendalton-

Waimairi ward, retired from

her role in 2013, and is a current

Canterbury District Health

Board member.

She hopes to promote waste

reduction while on the board

and will look to advocate on

the community’s behalf for

improvement in aquifers and

drinking water.

In Brief

FUNDING FOR SCHOOLS

Aranui’s St James School is

one of eight in the city to

be recipients of a total of $6

million of Government money

to earthquake-strengthen

school buildings. On Sunday,

education minister Hekia

Parata said the funding would

ensure a safe and comfortable

environment to learn in. The

biggest recipient was St Thomas

of Canterbury College which

received $1.8 million, then St

James at $1.6 million, followed

by St Joseph’s School with $1.3

million. The other schools all

received under a $1 million. St

Francis of Assisi School would

get $600,000, Rangiora New

Life School $311,000, St Mary’s

School, $217,000, Middleton

Grange School $150,000 and

Christchurch Rudolf Steiner

School, $22,000.

CONSULTATION CLOSES

Public consultation on the

New Brighton Hot Salt Water

Pools project has now closed.

The city council asked residents

for their opinions on what

they would like to see at the

pools, and how that may look.

Consultation was open from

October 14 until Monday

night. The city council will

now evaluate all the feedback

and make decisions in

conjunction with Development

Christchurch Ltd, based on

that.

ROAD REPAIRS

The intersection of Birchfield

Ave and Gayhurst Rd will have

a temporary road closure in

place for the next two weeks.

Residents will not be able

to access Gayhurst Rd from

Birchfield Ave. The Stronger

Christchurch Infrastructure

Rebuild Team is disconnecting

the wastewater pressure main

at the intersection of the

two roads. A one-way traffic

system will be in place heading

east towards Cheam St, and

along Birchfield Ave. Work is

expected to be completed on

November 22.

Two playgrounds – 930

students. Will it be enough?

Tens of millions are being

spent on the new Haeata

Community Campus, but

critics say there won’t

be enough playgrounds.

The onus to build extra

playgrounds may fall to the

school’s board of trustees

if the Ministry of Education

is unwilling to pay an

estimated $20,000 per

additional playground.

You said:

Janice Belgrave – It is just

a predicted roll. I will be very

surprised if they actually get

that many students, given that

students from at least one of the

closing primary schools, are not

obliged to go there and are subsequently

choosing other schools

within the area. If they need

more playgrounds/playground

equipment, they could relocate

some from the closing primary

schools, which would be much

cheaper as well as a sensible use

of resources!

Raewyn Murray – That

woman (we all know who she

is) did this – let her foot the

bill. Definitely need more than

two playgrounds or split the

playground times – that’s a good

idea.

Emma Geldard – The high

school-aged kids won’t need a

playground, just field space and

hard courts.

Heidi Meinzer – Certainly

need another playground. With

that amount of students. Or one

way they could do it is split the

playground time between the

years.

Pamela Neil – At the old

Christchurch Girls’ High School,

we had no playgrounds at all. We

coped by walking around Cranmer

Square.

FAERIE PICNIC: Faeries of all shapes and sizes gathered

at Rawhiti Domain on Sunday to have a picnic. About 300

people, pixies, elves and faeries met for pantomime stories

and songs with the Natural Magic Pirate Band, a sneak up on

the faerie game, a faerie teacup competition, face-painting

and many other fun activities. The faeries were even joined by

a group of wizards.

election spat.

Andrea Cummings worked

To belittle her commitment is

ludicrous and, after she lost her

place on the board, cruel.

Name-calling and reputationbashing

Genuine community building

is a much slower, kinder process,

School’s fate up to bishop

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE FUTURE of Marian

College will not be decided

until a new Catholic Bishop of

Christchurch is appointed.

The diocese has been looking

at permanent options to rebuild

the school after being forced

from its North Pde site following

the February 2011 earthquake.

However, none have been set

in stone.

In a letter to the school,

administrator of the diocese

Reverend Rick Loughnan

said the decision would be

deferred until a new bishop

was appointed and further

investigations were carried out.

“We must be 100 per cent sure

of our reasoning when the final

decision is made and, with a new

bishop soon to be appointed, it

would seem appropriate for him,

with our guidance, to have input

into this final decision,” the

letter said.

Marian principal Mary-Lou

Davidson said the school was in

good heart while it waited to see

where it would be rebuilt.

“It’s an important decision.

We want one that has the best

outcome for the school.”

Last year, the diocese decided

the school would not return

to its North Pde site because it

remained at risk of liquefaction

induced subsidence and lateral

spreading.

The Bishop of Christchurch is

the proprietor of the school.

Bishop Barry Jones initiated

the process of deciding

where the school would be

rebuilt.

However, he passed away in

February.

A diocese spokeswoman said

there was no time frame for

when a new bishop would be

appointed and it was highly

confidential.

“It’s a highly consultative

process, with both lay and clergy

to find a suitable candidate.”

REGENERATION: Graham Pullman drove from Orari to

Christchurch to donate $4000 worth of tussock to be planted

on red-zoned land.

Forest park support growing

HAMISH MONRO’S offer to

buy red zone land is not the only

offer of support for the proposed

Avon-Otakaro Forest Park to

have been generated by a popular

Facebook video.

The video has attracted more

than 138,000 views on Facebook

in the seven weeks since its

release.

Other offers inspired by the

video included the donation

of 1500 plants for the project

by Graham Pullman, of Orari

Nursery near Geraldine, and the

Student Volunteer Army has said

it could provide volunteers.

Avon-Otakaro Forest Park

spokesman Mark Huxtable said

it was fantastic to see people getting

behind the vision and public

support was “really important” to

the project.

Mr Pullman drove from Orari

to Christchurch to deliver the

$4000 worth of tussock to be

planted on red-zoned land.

“I think the vision [for the

park] is extraordinary,” he said.

“But most importantly it’s doable.”

He said the tussocks would

help remove sediments and nutrients

from the river and improve

stream life.

The location and timing of the

planting is yet to be determined

by the city council.

Architect helps rebuild communities

Entrepreneur Camia Young, 42, settled here

in the aftermath of the February 22, 2011,

earthquake. Fraser Walker-Pearce talks to

the American architect about her passion

for rebuilding the city

Tell me what you were doing

when you first arrived in New

Zealand?

I arrived five years ago and

was teaching architecture at the

University of Auckland. During

that time, we brought more than

1000 students to Christchurch to

help with the rebuild and I did

that until about a year or so ago.

I was flying from Christchurch

to Auckland on a Monday and

coming back on the Wednesday.

I would do that every week and I

got super tired. I loved teaching,

it was such a good time.

During your time at the university,

were you still involved

with Christchurch?

In the middle of that teaching

we did Gap Filler’s pallet pavilion,

which took place over the

course of a summer and winter.

It was up for two years, so that

was a treasure of a project. And

during setting that up, I caught

a bug – it was a good bug, but a

bug nonetheless. The bug taught

me about building communities

through building buildings. It

wasn’t about the pavilion it was

about the community around

the pavilion that made it work.

It was about a healing place for

the community to gather around

after the earthquakes.

And what after that?

Then I started a project called

Exchange Christchurch, XCHC.

X stands for exchange and CHC

is Christchurch’s airport code.

And we will be doing Exchange

Auckland, which will be XAKL

and Exchange Wellington which

will be XWLG. So there are other

initiatives coming as well. It

provides a place for people that

have lost a lot in the earthquakes,

a place to create and produce

their creative work and develop

their creative practice.

Great, so what can people see

at XCHC at the moment?

At the moment we have a

jeweller, a painter, a composer,

a few photographers, an

architectural designer and art

exhibitions that change weekly.

So would you say you’ve been

quite involved with the rebuild

of the city?

I’ve been more involved in the

social side of the rebuild more

than anything. What I’ve been

doing is learning by doing while

I’m here. This will absolutely

be a 21st century city where it’s

not so much about the next big

icon, but where the people will

come first and the buildings will

be a by-product of that. I have

confidence in the people.

Right, and where in the city

are you based?

I’m mostly at the exchange

in the central city, but I own

a place out in Lyttelton. I love

Lyttelton, but I also love Sumner,

New Brighton, places with a

cool community feel. I much

prefer the speed of small than

the big city stuff, you can get

so much more done in small

communities. I actually live up in

Mt Pleasant and I quite like that.

And you have a slight accent

there – is it American?

Yes. I was born in Colorado

and those mountains still call

to me. I’m from Aspen. It’s the

Rocky Mountains that get me.

New Zealand has a really strong

connection with nature as well.

I left when I was younger and

lived in Europe for 11 years,

studied in London, then worked

in Rotterdam (Netherlands),

Paris (France), Madrid (Spain)

and Basel (Switzerland). It was

great, I was practicing there as an

architect.

There must have been some

incredible projects in the likes

of Paris?

There was one project in Paris

– it’s the only time I’ve ever cried

ENTREPRENEUR: Camia Young moved to Christchurch to

use her skills as an architect to help rebuild the city after the

earthquakes.

when we lost a project. It still

hurts to this day. I fell in love

with it. It’s where I learned to

dream with the intent to realise

the dream. It’s easy to come up

with an idea, it’s expensive to

execute them.

I’d imagine it would be. Have

you been anywhere other than

America, Europe and New

Zealand?

I’m also a Brazilian resident.

My father lives there. I spend

a bit of time there and I speak

Portuguese as well. He lives in

northern Brazil. He built a selfsustaining

home in the middle

of the sand dunes. He’s lived

without electricity for the last 25

years and now has solar power.

He’s a hippy in the middle of a

desert. So he’s my inspiration for

a lot of things.

That’s pretty incredible. Do

you have a project that, once

completed, you’ll be happy to

retire and put your feet up?

No. I don’t really have an

end-game. I love seeing positive

change. And I think we’re all

inherently creative, to see that

work done is the road and the

end for me.

Where did you spend your

school years?

Up through secondary I

was in Aspen, elementary and

high school. Then I did my

undergraduate at University

of Colorado and graduated

as valedictorian and went

on to get a masters in Los

Angeles at SCIARC, the

Southern California Institute of

Architecture. In three years, I got

two masters degrees, rather than

two and a half for one masters,

which it could’ve been. Then I

practiced architecture in Europe

for 11 years across the board

there.

Do you have any family over

here in Christchurch?

No, no family here, I fly solo.

I have lots of love, I miss them,

miss the mountains, too. But

some family has come out while

I’m here, though. Mum and dad

have been out. My sister uses

the old ‘if you don’t eat your

vegetables, you won’t be able to

go visit Aunty Camia’ on her two

kids. They’re super-excited to

visit as well.

Was it always an intention of

yours to come to Christchurch?

Not at all. I was looking for

change from working in a

corporate office. As much as I

loved my life in Europe, I wanted

to find somewhere I could do

my own thing. A friend of mine

who is a Kiwi offered to bring me

in to teach at the University of

Auckland, which was about three

months before the February

22, 2011, earthquake. Then

that entire year course became

focused on the earthquake and

on Christchurch. I had never

taught and I had never been to

Christchurch, but I was looking

for a new home and so I came

a month before the course

was due to start and I walked

Christchurch for that month and

then went up to teach the course.

I knew in that month that I

would stay here. I was looking

at a couple of other countries

around the world – Brazil,

Canada – but I couldn’t do it.

What are some of your

first memories stepping into

Christchurch post-earthquake?

It was late 2011, so it was

post-apocalyptic. I thought

immediately I was in way over

my head and I thought I was

naive in the fact that I thought

I could make a difference. But

after phoning my dad about it,

I decided I would stay. I started

really walking the city and

learning as much as I possibly

could about it. I ended up getting

my visa through the job in

Auckland and now I’m here. But

that month, it was really scary

for me because I had never seen

a crisis on that scale before and I

didn’t know what to do.

Must have been pretty

terrifying. Had you experienced

an earthquake before that?

I think I remember maybe one

earthquake when I was in Aspen,

but when I was in LA there was

a few. But nothing compared

to when I came here, and they

happened so often back then.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | NOVEMBER 2016

EQC pays $495 million in the past year to

settle Canterbury claims

EQC Chief Executive Ian Simpson

The Earthquake Commission paid

out nearly half a billion dollars to

settle claims in Canterbury in the

year to 30 June 2016, its recently

released annual report shows.

The annual report includes lots of detail

about the work EQC has been carrying

out in Canterbury in the past year.

Figures in the report show that in the

2015/16 financial year, EQC paid out

$495 million in claims for the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquake sequence.

This total was made up of $441 million

for residential building claims (both for

cash settlements and managed repairs),

$46 million for residential land claims

and $8 million for contents claims.

IN THE

FINANCIAL YEAR

TO

30 JUNE 2016 EQC PAID OUT

$495 MILLION

MADE UP OF $441 MILLION

FOR RESIDENTIAL BUILDING CLAIMS,

$46 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL

LAND CLAIMS AND $8 MILLION

FOR CONTENTS CLAIMS.

EQC has now spent $9.4 billion

(including claim handling expenses,

excluding GST) in its response to the

2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.

This sum has been financed from the

Natural Disaster Fund and by the

reinsurance cover EQC had negotiated

prior to the earthquakes.

EQC recovered about $444 million

of the cost of Canterbury claims,

largely from international reinsurers,

in 2015/16.

EQC also paid out $25 million for claims

other than those from the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes. This includes

$4.7 million for claims from the

February 2016 earthquakes.

AT 30 JUNE 2016,

EQC HAD

COMPLETED

REPAIRS

ON MORE THAN 67,000 HOMES,

SETTLED 187,000 CONTENTS

CLAIMS, COMPLETED CLAIMS

FOR LAND DAMAGE TO

66,000 PROPERTIES.

In Canterbury, as at 30 June 2016, EQC

had completed repairs on more than

67,000 homes, settled 187,000

contents claims and completed claims

for land damage to 66,000 properties.

“By the end of the year we aim to

have cash settled the more than

14,000 claims from the February 2016

earthquakes,” says Chief Executive

Ian Simpson.

Mr Simpson reaffirmed EQC’s ongoing

commitment to Canterbury in 2017.

“In the upcoming year, EQC will

continue to be present in Canterbury

resolving remedial requests on

properties where we have managed a

repair. There is also a range of

administrative and financial tasks to be

completed.”

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016,

EQC HAD PAID OUT

$9.4 BILLION

IN RESPONSE TO THE 2010-2011

CANTERBURY EARTHQUAKES.

THIS MONEY CAME FROM THE

NATURAL DISASTER FUND

AND REINSURANCE.

Mr Simpson says that EQC has adequate

funds to continue to operate and to meet

its financial obligations and settle claims.

“There is always a high level of

uncertainty when it comes to settling

claims. For instance with home repairs,

the true extent of damage may only

become clear once repairs begin and

tradies start ripping off weatherboards

or lifting floorboards.

IN ADDITION,

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016

EQC HAD PAID OUT

$4.7 MILLION

FOR CLAIMS ARISING FROM THE

FEBRUARY 2016 EARTHQUAKES

IN CANTERBURY.

“Because of this uncertainty, we have

built a margin into our estimates of what

the Canterbury claims will cost.

“In the event that we did need to use all

of this margin, the Crown has confirmed

in writing that it will meet its obligations

under the Earthquake Commission Act to

ensure that EQC can meet all its liabilities

as they fall due,” Mr Simpson says.

The EQC Annual Report shows that EQC

received about $280 million in premiums

and spent $210 million on expenses,

excluding claims payments and claims

handling expenses for the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquake sequence.

“Our largest expense was the $150

million in premiums for reinsurance,

which currently provides New Zealand

with access to $4.69 billion in cover

for natural disasters, once the cost of

these events exceeds the deductible,”

Mr Simpson says.

A copy of the EQC Annual Report

2015/16 can be downloaded from the

EQC website.

Canterbury students

head to Chile for

earthquake conference

Five engineering students from University of Canterbury will be

attending the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering

(16WCEE) in Chile this January thanks to sponsorship from EQC and

the NZ Society for Earthquake Engineers (NZSEE).

EQC’s Research Strategy and Investment Manager Richard Smith says the

sponsorship goes partway to supporting students and practitioners to

attend the conference, which is the preeminent gathering of engineers

involved in seismic resistant design.

“WCEE is to earthquake engineers what the Olympics are to sport. This

opportunity gives these students exposure to ideas and knowledge from

around the globe as well as the chance to forge international connections

that will be of value to their research and to New Zealand.

“EQC plays an important role in funding and facilitating research about

natural hazard risk. Part of that is making sure we have researchers within

New Zealand who have the capability to undertake that research.”

Mechanical engineering PhD student Jarrod Cook says the chance to

attend 16WCEE will be invaluable. “I’m exploring ways a ratcheting,

tension-only device can reduce the motion experienced by buildings

during an earthquake, and therefore limit the damage and impact to

people as well as enabling buildings to stay open after the event. WCEE is

the premier conference in earthquake engineering so this is a great way

to share my ideas, get critical feedback and see what others are doing.”

WCEE is held every four years and provides attendees with the

opportunity for a global exchange of knowledge, ideas, research

results and practical experience. As well as students from Canterbury,

EQC and NZSEE are jointly sponsoring the attendance of five students

from Auckland University and four industry representatives from across

New Zealand.

From left to right: Jarrod Cook, Pavan Aninthaneni and Amir Malek are three of

five University of Canterbury students heading to Chile for the World Conference

on Earthquake Engineering this January.

Experts restore that

“winning smile”

MEETING PEOPLE for the first time,

interacting with others on social occasions,

going for a job interview - in all these

situations your smile is the most important

part of you.

Or perhaps, on a lighter note, you

might be scaring yourself with your ‘selfie’

because your smile is not as attractive as it

should be, due to missing or broken teeth.

Perhaps it’s time for a visit to Denture

South in Barrington, where the experts can

give you that winning smile back.

Clinical dental technician, Andrew

Johnson and associate Janice ling can

provide you with a highly personalised

experience. We have a lot of knowledge

and experience that can help guide you

through the process.

For people who have had dentures for a

while and are finding they frequently need

to buy denture adhesive to keep them in

place, Andrew advises having the dentures

relined so they will fit better. As he points

out, the money spent on denture adhesive

over 12 months would easily cover the cost

of having your dentures refitted.

Denture South has been providing a full

range of denture services for the residents

of Christchurch for over 13 years. These

services include first-time immediate

dentures, full replacement dentures, partial

plates and sports mouth-guards.

Many Denture South clients come

through word-of-mouth referral, an

indication of the level of satisfaction that’s

provided there. Coming into Christmas

we will be open and available for all

adjustments for our existing patients in the

final week, making for a great Christmas.

The friendly Denture South team.

Conveniently

located at 230

Barrington Street,

Denture South has

off-street parking.

consultation.

Ensuring a safe

work place

BIG NIGHT: The Aranui Eagles picked up a number of accolades at the

Canterbury Rugby League awards.

Aranui Eagles end the

season with big awards

• By Gordon Findlater

THE ARANUI Eagles had

a night to remember at the

recent Canterbury Rugby

League awards at the

Hornby Working Men’s

Club.

A number of the night’s

major awards were taken

home by this year’s Gore

Cup champions, none bigger

than the referee plaque

– club of the year award.

In June, the club celebrated

the completion of

its new changing rooms

at Wainoni Park after

having to use a temporary

container following the

earthquakes.

The year wasn’t without

its lows. The club was in

mourning following the

death of secretary Cathy

Irwin on August 5. She

was a huge loss not only to

the club, but to the local

community.

Irwin, who also

worked with the Aranui

Community Trust, was

remembered for her work

with the club at the awards

evening. Two of Irwin’s

daughters, Cherie Rangihuna

and Shakeena Irwin,

accepted the Rochelle

MacPherson Trophy –

administrator of the year

award on her behalf.

The Eagles also had a

number of other individual

awards go their way

on the night.

Club president Alana

Hema won the RC

Reddock Trophy, the

biggest award for her role.

Meanwhile, Kahi Tipene

picked up the AG Bailey

Cup after finishing as the

top try scorer in this year’s

Massetti Cup.

The Eagles finished the

Massetti Cup round robin

in fifth place.

They then competed

for the Gore Cup, which

is contested between

the bottom four teams

following the round robin.

The Eagles defeated the

Halswell Hornets 24-16

in the semi-final and

then lifted the cup after

defeating the Celebration

Lions 26-20.

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.

An exciting career

in Automotive

Southern Institute of Technology

(SIT) graduate Janaka Liyanapathirana’s

childhood love of cars has seen him excel

to an exciting career in Automotive.

Janaka completed the Certificate in

Automotive Engineering in Christchurch

in October and, after being recognised for

his overall outstanding efforts throughout

the course, has graduated with a prized

welding helmet gifted by BOC.

“I was really surprised about the award,

it was so unexpected,” he said.

Coming to New Zealand to pursue his

dream of becoming a mechanic, Janaka

said he tried different automotive courses

around the country but only found the

right course for him at SIT.

“I was so lucky to find the right place, the

right course and the right tutors [at SIT],

from all of the other places where I tried

within NZ,”

“The best opportunity the course gave

me was the live practical experience and

institutions with proper techniques from

the tutors who are qualified and have long

term experience in the same trade.”

Janaka said he has already received an

opportunity to enter the workforce and

start his career.

“I think I have followed the right track,

by the time I finished I got a job offer from

the biggest car company in Christchurch,

so I have already planned to join them and

enjoy working with what I have studied.”

For any enquires phone 349 3645 or call

in and see us at 60 Waterloo Road.

Help your child grow

in confidence

Life skills programme for children.

Do your children lack self-confidence, or

perhaps have so much energy that they need

an outlet for it? Development through drama

is the ideal approach to teach confidence

and channel youthful energy while building

self-esteem.

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy has

been in New Zealand for 32 years. This highly

regarded worldwide programme helps

students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their potential by

acting confidently and speaking clearly. This

unique, self-development programme helps

achieve invaluable life skills. The confident,

articulate child makes friends easily, accepts

challenges and new directions. Confident

children become well-rounded adults.

Our fully qualified teachers are trained

in the Helen O’Grady Drama system,

they ensure each child is encouraged

and valued in a warm, positive learning

environment. Lessons stimulate and

motivate students without the exam or

peer group pressure. Weekly class activities

include speech training, creative movement

and improvisation. Our Youth Theatre

programme encourages the development of

leadership and organisational skills. Three

terms of the year cover the self-development

programme and in the fourth term all

students prepare a performance for parents

and friends. We also offer Trinity College

London examinations as an option for

those who wish to pursue an international

qualification.

Our safe structured learning environment

values student individuality and encourages

team building. Most importantly its great

fun too!
