GREAT RANGE

OF GIFTS

• By Caitlin Miles

FOR YEARS pupils at Bromley

School have had to duck and

dive as they crossed a nearby

busy intersection.

But soon they will have a

pedestrian island on Bromley

Rd at the intersection with

Keighleys Rd so the children can

safely get to the middle of the

road before crossing the other

lane.

The Bromley Community

Centre raised the issue with

the former Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board in 2015,

pushing it for something to be

done.

“So many of our kids cross

there and it’s such a busy road it

can be dangerous.

“They would duck between

stopped cars and trucks because

they didn’t want to wait, now it

will be much safer,” said school

teacher Cathy Baker.

She hopes parents will be

happier to let their children

make their own way to school.

School pupils made a

deputation to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board meeting last week,

asking for safety measures to

be put in place to make it safer

to cross.

The community board

approved the decision to install a

pedestrian island.

Cr Yani Johanson said it was

good news for the school and

community centre.

Ms Baker said it was “exciting”

news after campaigning for

safety measures for so long.

“We spoke to so many

people, went and counted cars

and trucks driving past . . . it’s

ridiculous,” she said.

This comes after schools

around the city started

campaigning for safer roads

outside schools by lowering the

speed limits during school hours

in the morning and afternoon.

Ms Baker said lowering speed

limits is an important issue

for the schools, but said this

was a good step in making the

children safer.

She said the school will hold

road safety lessons with the

pupils to encourage them to

safely use the island to cross the

road.

Work is under way for the

pedestrian island.

News........................................3-7

A NEW era has dawned for

education in the eastern suburbs

with the opening of Haeata

Community Campus (see our

photos on page 4).

The earthquakes brought many

changes to the east side and

schools are one of them.

Time will tell whether Haeata

is a good move, but purely from a

family point of view, I’m guessing

many parents will only be too

happy to have all of their kids

heading to one school.

Older brother looks after

younger brother and all that sort

of thing.

Aranui High was a great school

(I’m an old boy). I can remember

some of the stuff we got up to like

it was yesterday.

The teachers were great (except

for one or two), and I made some

great friends, a number I still see

all these years on.

Yacht club’s $1.17m shed

• By Tom Doudney

THE Christchurch Yacht Club

is hoping it will soon get the go

ahead for a new rowing shed to

replace the one demolished after

the June 2011 earthquake.

The Moncks Bay-based club

wants to build a new $1.17 million

shed in a

more seaward

position to allow

room for the

Coastal Pathway

walking and cycle

route between

Trevor Kite

it and the road.

Building the shed

further seaward

means higher costs.

The club already has resource

consent and a building permit

for the new shed. It has also

asked the city council to contribute

$327,595 towards the extra

costs associated with providing

for the Coastal Pathway, along

with an additional $239,713 because

the public will have use of

the shed’s decks and ramps.

The club has raised $607,000

so far, and has carried out soil

testing.

It has met with both the city

council and the Coastal Pathway

group over the last two months

and expects to get a response

from the city council soon.

Once funding has been

secured, work could begin

almost immediately and

would take about 10 months to

complete.

The new shed would be 5.5m

further seaward, enlarging the

space for a public walking and

cycle route between it and the

road from 1m to 4m.

The club’s shed and boardwalk

project convener Trevor Kite

said the proposal was a winwin

scenario for the club and

community.

“Although we have the right

to put the shed back as it was, to

have done so would have denied

the community the chance to

walk past there except for a little

track,”

he said.

“It has been identified as the

major obstacle for completing

the Coastal Pathway between

Ferrymead and Sumner.”

Mr Kite said the club would

function much better when it

could once again provide a shed

for members to store boats in.

This would also help with

traffic and parking in the area,

as members would not have to

bring their boats with them on

trailers.

The shed had already been

damaged in the February 2011

earthquake and was deemed

unsafe following the magnitude

6.3 quake in June that year,

which was centred less than

200m away.

The clubrooms were

also damaged by the 2011

earthquakes, although they are

still able to be used and will be

rebuilt at a later date.

FLOOD PROTECTION

Consultation on landscaping

at Linwood Lower Fields as

part of flood mitigation work

will close next week. The plans

involve turning 2.75ha of

unused land at the Kimihia

Parents’ College into an urban

forest and park area with

retention ponds. The city council

wants to use the land as part

of a series of work between

Antigua St in the central city

and Hargood St in Woolston,

designed to improve flood

protection and water quality in

the Bells Creek catchment. The

For all your blind repair and cleaning requirements

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

50 per day. That means they will come to

your home or office, remove and clean

Concerts, events could

be held in red zone

gotoring

CONCERTS AND other events

could be held in the residential

red zone to take pressure off

Hagley Park.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel

floated the idea at a city

council meeting on

Thursday that holding

“concerts and various

other events” would be a

good transitional use of

ites asty Bites

the land.

It is not the first time the red

zone has been suggested as a

location for concerts and other

big events.

Hands off Hagley, the park’s

watch dog group, suggested last

year popular noisy events

should be hosted in the

residential red zone to

stop damage to the park.

Ms Dalziel said holding

events in the red zone

would “re-engage the

community in the area”.

The residential red zone is

430ha of land, an area two and a

half times the size of Hagley Park.

Her comments came after city

councillor Aaron Keown said

that he had received a number

of complaints regarding the lack

of available parking at Hagley

Park for events.

In November the city council

banned parking on the grassed

areas in Hagley Park.

Previously vehicles could be

parked on the fields for major

events, but the practice was

damaging the land.

Ms Dalziel said the city

councillors needed an update on

the parking situation.

Making bus rides

more enjoyable

• Ashleigh Monk

MAGDA Lorenzo has spent the

last two months delivering books

to bus stops for commuters to

enjoy.

Ms Lorenzo started the

initiative ‘The Commuting Book’

to encourage reading and the use

of public transport.

The idea is for people to pick

up a book at their bus stop, read

it while they ride the bus, then

drop it off when they get to their

stop.

“The idea behind The

Commuting Books is to create

opportunities for people to

engage in reading by bringing

them (books) into public spaces,”

she said.

“I see bus stops a social hub

and it’s very interesting the way

you can engage in conversation

with people waiting for the bus

with you and sometimes the

books are an excuse to do

that.”

Ms Lorenzo delivered the

books herself on her bicycle she

had named ‘Mantis’.

“It depends on the weather

that day; I can ride for several

hours around the city. Normally

I choose one of the bus routes

and leave the books at the stops

on that route.”

Each book had a ‘Commuting

Book’ sticker with informations

and instructions on the project.

Although Ms Lorenzo has not

had much feedback she said the

travelling of books was a good

sign.

“Some of them are responding

through Facebook. They are

being very generous with their

comments and their feedback.

It’s very encouraging.”

Ms Lorenzo estimated she

had distributed about 230

books so far, and hoped that

number would rise as the project

developed.

“We hope to be implementing

a few different aspects to the

project in the next couple of

months.”

Southshore triathlete

dominating junior series

ARI GRAHAM has continued

to dominate the junior triathlon

circuit with her third win of

the national series at Takapuna

Beach, Auckland.

The Southshore triathlete was

also crowned winner at both the

House of Travel (Christchurch)

and Future ChampioNZ festivals

(Taupo) in December.

Graham, 17, has recently

started to focus on triathlon with

most of her training previously

targeting athletics. She was

introduced to the sport while

she was at school and enjoys the

combination of swimming and

running.

“Over the next six to 12

months, I’m looking to improve

my cycling as it’s my weakest

discipline. I also want to

increase my knowledge and

understanding of triathlon as the

training is a lot different

to athletics training,” said

Graham.

The background in athletics

has given Graham a strong

advantage on the run leg of the

sport. She steamed off ahead

of her competition completing

the run almost 1min ahead of

Hamilton’s Hannah Knighton

who finished second.

“I used to be a 1500m runner

so having that experience has

allowed me to understand

THREE-PEAT: Triathlete Ari Graham has started 2017 where she

left off last year, continuing her unbeaten run in the National

running tactics more,” said

Graham.

The National Junior Series

is intended to promote

strength and depth of domestic

competition for aspiring young

triathletes in New Zealand.

There are a diverse mix of

races that athletes will encounter

throughout the series to promote

skill and speed.

The final two races of the series

will take place in Wanaka this

month and Wellington in March.

Graham has her eyes set on the

remainder of the series and, with

a gap year ahead of her to work

part-time and focus on training,

the youngster will be one to

watch out for this year.

AT THIS time of the year former

Super Rugby player Ged Robinson

is normally getting towards peak

fitness ahead of a busy season.

This year he’s all about keeping

Christchurch well fed with what

he calls a Kiwi take on Italian style

pizza.

Fed by Ged will be one of many

tasty and nutritious options

available for those needing refuelling

following The Star City2Surf. The

former Crusader, whose mobile

wood fire pizza oven is regularly

based outside

awaiting

runners at the

next month’s

event.

Outside

of rugby

Robinson

has always had a love for food. After

recently hanging up the boots he’s

now had more time to concentrate

on that love.

“I’m a front rower so I love food.

I moved to Melbourne and played

over there for three years. My wife

and I spent a lot of time checking out

the city and enjoying the food, that

probably fired up the taste buds even

more,” said Robinson.

His first experiments with pizza

came during his time while playing

for the Melbourne Rebels, regularly

feeding teammates on his own

creations. His passion for fuelling a

squad has grown ever since.

After spending a decade as a

professional rugby player Robinson

knows all about nutrition, something

he’s taken to the oven.

“Italian style pizza has really high

quality meat and really low in sugar

and salt. I do make brown flour

pizza dough as well as the traditional

white. It’s all really good quality,

non-processed food,” said Robinson.

Robinson is continually working

on new creations and by the time

March 19 rolls around he may just

have a new recipe to unveil.

and is making great strides to once again

Since its formation in 1970 Christchurch

United captains have lifted six National

League trophies (1973, 1975, 1978, 1987,

1988, 1991) and six Chatham Cups (1972,

1975, 1976, 1989 and 1991).

Christchurch United has recently joined

forces with the acclaimed Christchurch

Football Academy programme and the

merged entity will be mainly based at the

few clubs in the country

with three internationallylicenced

They will provide a huge

variety of programmes, from

intensive elite Academy

in Spreydon, from First Kicks to Masters

grades.

Our professional coaches will personally

deliver the curriculum but also run a

the skills and qualifications of the club’s

volunteer coaches.

Christchurch United FC has set itself

extremely high standards to deliver a

SENIOR LIVING

The power of

chlorophyll

Chlorophyll is a truly amazing substance

with powerful health benefits. It is the green

pigment found in plants they use to make

energy through photosynthesis. It is a rich

source of natural minerals, vitamins, amino

acids and antioxidants, which are essential

in balancing and maintaining the alkalinity

of the body. Ideally we want our body to

be slightly alkaline as an acidic body is

prone to unhealthy organisms that can

damage organs, the immune system and

may lead to allergies, asthma, congestion,

fatigue, frequent colds, headaches,

inflammation, joint and muscle pain, skin

problems, ulcers, weight gain and over

the long term arthritis, cancer, diabetes,

fibromyalgia, heart disease, multiple

sclerosis, osteoporosis and stroke. The

biggest contributor to acidity in the body is

our modern diet. Excess acidity is caused

by eating processed foods, too much animal

protein, dairy products and processed

grains such as corn and wheat. Normally

the kidneys maintain our acid/alkaline

balance by adjusting the electrolyte levels

in the body. The electrolytes are calcium,

magnesium, potassium and sodium. The

best source of these electrolytes is raw

fruits and vegetables as cooking depletes

alkalising minerals. Green drinks made

with fresh vegetables or powders are very

alkalising as they contain chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll is structurally similar to our

own blood and alkalises the blood.

Chlorophyll is available in concentrated

liquid form and is an ideal way to help

alkalise and mineralise the body. Generally

5-15ml is taken straight or diluted in

water or juice. Chlorophyll is a powerful

cleansing and detoxifying agent for the

body and blood. It acts as a natural internal

deodoriser, helping with body odour, bad

breath, promoting good digestive function

and supporting overall health and wellbeing.

Chlorophyll supports efficient

oxygen transportation by the blood and as

a result can improve energy and make you

feel more refreshed and invigorated.

Third Aged Tours

Taking people aged over 50 on trips

around New Zealand and the world for

nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours

a brag book that Director Brenda Corby-

Yarrall says “businesses would give their

eye teeth for.”

Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people

means I can operate the tour in a relaxed,

companionable manner. We have an

absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about

having fun.

Most of my trips are run annually

because they’re so popular, but I’m always

adding new destinations - like “Sicily, South

Italy & Vatican” + “Cuba”,

as people ask for them.

Brenda checks out all

accommodation before

booking it, and ensures

the party spends at least a

few nights at each place.

That way you don’t feel

like you’re living out of a

suitcase.

Many clients now have

made over 20 tours with

us, one has completed a

whopping 27 tours.

My clients tell me they

keep coming back because

of the size of the groups and our relaxed

manner. My motto is ‘There are no

strangers, only friends waiting to meet.’

We gather together for breakfast at

8.30am which sets us up for the day and

everybody thinks is a very civilised hour.

I organise incredible trips at incredible

prices. Look around, you can’t find better

for all we include.

Strengthen your spine, avoid

back pain

Whether it’s from gardening, lifting

something heavy, or twisting awkwardly,

most of us will experience low back pain

during our lifetime and it can certainly

slow us down.

An exciting and effective way of

resolving and preventing low back or neck

pain is Dynamic Spines, a programme run

by Muscle People in Christchurch City

and Bishopdale. As physiotherapist and

director of Muscle People, Laurie Moore,

explains: “Spinal strength and stability is

the focus of the programme, concentrating

on the deep core muscles in the trunk.”

The programme is designed to move

you beyond pain to a place where you feel

confident about taking part in dynamic

activities, and significantly reduce

recurrence of back pain, she says.

Led by physiotherapists, the weekly

exercise programme is conducted for

small groups, with core stability and

spinal muscle control being addressed.

Participants experience clear progression

each week, which will cross over to their

everyday life.

“More than 80 per cent of New Zealanders

suffer from a significant episode of low

back pain during their life,” Laurie says.

“Of these, 84 per cent are likely to have

a recurrence of back pain within a year.

Research shows that those that undergo a

specific spinal strengthening programme

are almost three times better off.”

The benefits of completing the Dynamic

Spines programme:

• Stabilise your spine

• Increase your core strength

• Improve your confidence

• Correct causative factors that may

relate to ongoing pain and recurrent

episodes of low back pain

• Specific training for your back

A Muscle People client who has completed

the Dynamic Spines programmes, Julie,

says: “The course has been life-changing.

I suffered from severe neck pain and was

fearful of any movement. This programme

has strengthened up my neck muscles,

making me feel confident and like a new

woman.”

Another participant, Tor, says: After

partaking in the Dynamic Spines group

exercise programme I definitely feel

stronger all over – thigh muscles, arms,

general increased stamina. This has helped

with my gardening work, with less lower

back niggles.”

Before you join the Dynamic Spines

programme, a physiotherapist will assess

your individual needs. The programme is

then split into two levels. Laurie explains:

After

Before

“The first level is all about learning to locate and then strengthen the appropriate muscles.

The physiotherapists will help each person to achieve this based on their individual

diagnosis and ability.

“The second level focuses on turning those learned skills into habitual movements and

improving strength. Home exercises are also an integral part of the programme.

The Dynamic Spines programme is designed for men and women of all ages and fitness

levels, who have back or neck pain, or with core or postural weakness.

Waterfront Gem

28 Esplanade, Sumner

Auction 16th February 2017 (unless sold prior)

4 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom | 2 Living Rooms | 1 Dining Room | 2 Car Garage | 2 Off Street Carparks - Listing No: FM5064

Properties in this location are tightly held and are

rarely becoming available and it is almost impossible to

find an original character home let alone on Sumner’s

waterfront.

Positioned right opposite Cave Rock, Scarborough

and Sumner Beaches and boasting one of the few

homes on the Esplanade with rear access and views

in both directions. Views encapsulate Scarborough

Heads sweeping over Sumner Beach and right along

the coastline to the Kaikoura Ranges and the Southern

Alps.

Built approximately 100 years ago when

craftsmanship was valued this graceful character home

has great street appeal, good bones and untapped

potential. Clearly cherished and lovingly maintained

with gleaming timber floors throughout and a good old

fashioned ambience.

All the ground floor is dedicated to two generous

sized living rooms, one which is open plan with the

kitchen and has French doors opening on to the rear

garden, the other being the formal dining and living

room area.

Upstairs hosts four bedrooms, two that are large and

two smaller plus a sunroom which is sure to be the best

seat in the house.

The grounds are much larger than first appear with

a well laid out back area for the family to enjoy, rear

access from the ROW (off Burgess St) and off street

parking, garage and a workshop/studio/storage room.

This is an ideal location to raise your family and

offers a beachy laid back lifestyle. Enjoy a surf or swim

after work or a morning stroll along the Esplanade. Life

doesn’t get much better than this.

With a myriad of village shops, cafes and boutiques

within close proximity from your door, you are sure to

enjoy the benefits of such a prime address.

A treasured family home for the past 35 years, it is now

time for our owner to say goodbye. Here’s your chance

to stamp your mark and purchase this special property.

Your earliest inspection is highly recommended.

COMPUTING FOR FREE

Free qualification builds digital confidence

The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 3

(Intermediate User) has been developed to equip

students with the digital skills expected in today’s

workforce.

Ara Computing for Free Academic Team Leader Des

Hoogervorst says that learning how to use digital

technology and operate online is now a necessity.

“Technology, the workforce and education are

evolving. Through this new programme, we work

with students to build their confidence with

technology step-by-step. Then we show them how

they can use it to discover information and come up

with solutions.”

The certificate introduces students to the types of

tools commonly used in a business environment.

Students can then apply this knowledge to the

specific tools used in their workplace and adapt to

new ones as technology advances.

One of the advantages about studying through

Computing for Free is the community that students

become part of. The Level 3 certificate includes an

online forum where students can share their insights

as they progress through the course.

“This experience will enable students to have

confident conversations in a digital work

environment. By interacting with people from

different industries and backgrounds, students will

also learn more about the digital business world.”

The qualification covers fundamental digital skills,

such as the use of different mobile devices and how

to connect these to WiFi and Bluetooth.

Students will explore the privacy and security

implications of different types of filing systems and

file sharing software, including cloud-based storage.

Experiencing tools such as Microsoft Office, online

presentations, basic HTML editing suites and social

media will give students a wide understanding of

the digital activities carried out in most businesses.

The programme has no fees, is self-paced and

flexible. Students can start at any time of the year

and can choose to study from home or at one of the

Ara Computing for Free locations in Christchurch or

Timaru. Enrolments are open now.

Computing for Free focuses on digital skills

Ara Institute of Canterbury is preparing students

to operate in the digital workplace through

Computing for Free. New qualifications are being

introduced this year, with a focus on digital literacy.

Computing for Free Manager Peter Nock says that

the new qualifications reflect today’s digital business

environment. They are delivered primarily online and

encourage digital collaboration and problem solving.

The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 3

(Intermediate User) is open for enrolment now and

equips students with the knowledge to use a broad

range of technology to their advantage.

“Rather than just teaching students to use specific

software well, this qualification encourages them to

become independent thinkers. They will learn to use

technology to problem solve and come up with their

own solutions, instead of relying on a textbook or

their tutor.”

While some familiarity with computing is needed

to get started, beginners can complete some of

Computing for Free’s non-assessed courses as

a stepping-stone to build their basic skills and

confidence first.

“It doesn’t matter what level of knowledge you have,

just come in and talk to us and we can come up with

a pathway to suit you. We’re here to support you to

fill in the gaps.”

With 90% of the course content delivered online,

the Level 3 qualification is highly flexible. Students

can fit study in around their work and family

commitments, and progress at their own pace.

They can choose to study from home, the office,

or at one of our Computing for Free locations in

Christchurch or Timaru.

A Level 4 qualification will also be introduced in

2017 for people who want to further their skills.

The New Zealand Certificate in Computing Level 4

(Advanced User) will give students the expertise

to analyse more complex data and become more

efficient at doing business using technology.

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

KNOWLEDGE AT WORK

CHRISTCHURCH | ASHBURTON | TIMARU | OAMARU | ONLINE


COMPUTING FOR FREE

5 essential skills for the digital workplace

The skill-set for anyone who works in an office environment has changed dramatically in the past 10 years and it continues to

change at a rapid pace. Ara Head of Computing Dr Nathan Rountree identifies the essential skills people need to thrive in the

digital workplace.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #1:

ADAPTABILITY TO A RANGE

OF DIGITAL TOOLS

General digital confidence and competence is now

essential for employment and career progression.

Gone are the days of just training to use select

computer programs, instead people need to be able

to find and use the right digital tools to complete a

variety of tasks.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #2:

IT COMMUNICATION

People need to understand enough about IT to

communicate effectively with IT support in their

organisation, or as part of running their own

small business. An increased knowledge of the IT

environment results in better communication, better

functioning of teams and better business results.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #3:

ELECTRONIC FILING CAPABILITY

It is now an expectation that all staff in an

organisation, from business administrators to

managers, can make decisions about file storage.

Everyone needs to have the ability to organise an

electronic filing system that many other people are

going to use, with differing levels of access.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #4:

UNDERSTANDING TECHNOLOGY

FOR BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT

There are now endless digital tools that can help us do

better, faster and more efficient business. It’s important

that people are aware of how new technologies can be

used to benefit them and their organisation.

ESSENTIAL SKILL #5:

KNOWING HOW TO MAKE SENSE

OF DATA

Today almost all organisations are using data

to make better decisions and there is a strong

expectation that everyone in a business can look at,

process and understand data. The most common

way data is presented is in a spreadsheet and these

have to be read by people who understand both

data and spreadsheets.

Computing For Free can help support you in acquiring these skills so you can be more effective in the workplace.
