Hot pools may not use sea water

• By Sarla Donovan

THE MULTI-MILLION dollar

New Brighton hot salt water

pools might not use sea water.

Instead, the pools could be

filled with freshwater, says the

group behind the project.

Development Christchurch

says while the intention is still

to use salt water, they are unable

to say whether

this would come

from the ocean,

or whether salt

would be added to

freshwater.

David East

Rob Hall

In December, the

city council agreed

to fund a further

$11 million for the

development of a

new play area and

hot pools project,

subject to funding

approval through

this year’s Annual

Plan process.

Development

Christchurch

is leading the project’s

construction.

Development Christchurch

chief executive Rob Hall said

yesterday that a decision on what

water they would use wouldn’t be

made until after the Annual Plan

approval in June.

However, Coastal-Burwood

Community Board member Tim

Baker said the public had been

misinformed about the pools.

He criticised Development

Christchurch for continuing to

call it the “hot salt water pools

project.”

They were essentially “big spa

pools,” which he said was a less

attractive proposition than salt

water.

Mr Hall said he didn’t think

they had been deceiving the

public by continuing to call them

“hot salt water pools,” saying

the original concept was for hot

salt water and that was still the

intention.

In an email earlier this month

to Tim Baker, Mr Hall said his

gut feeling was that salt water

wouldn’t be used.

“We certainly won’t be using

salt water from the ocean. [The]

question still remains, do we put

some salt in?”

When asked about the email,

Mr Hall said he was referring to

the whale pool and playground

development, not the hot pools.

Coastal Ward city councillor

David East said he would be

“most unsupportive” of any shift

away from salt water.

The pools had been promoted

as an asset for the regional area

and salt water was the main

drawcard.

He couldn’t see any reason why

they would use anything else in

the pools.

Community board member

Linda Stewart said she wanted a

facility which did justice to the

site’s proximity to the beach and

having salt water was a part of

that.

Strategic Urban Rejuvenation

Force spokesperson Lesley Fulton

said people would be keener

on salt water pools and, if they

weren’t using salt water, “they

might need to be renamed.”

POOL PROJECT: An artist’s

impression of what the

planned hot salt water pools

in New Brighton would look

like. The pools may not be

filled with salt water from the

ocean.

UPGRADE: The whale pool at

New Brighton will be heated

as part of a planned upgrade,

but it will be unlikely to use

salt water.

However, she wanted the pools

to go ahead whether they used

salt water or not.

South Brighton resident Donna

Dimond said while salt water

would be more pleasing given

the location, she was happy to

see any development that would

enhance the area and attract

more visitors and businesses, “be

it salt water or not.”

PEGASUS POST

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News.......................................3, 7

The hot salt water pools project

has been widely touted as the

project that will reinject New

Brighton, turning it back into a

busy hub.

And ever since the day dot, it

has always been referred to as the

hot salt water pools.

It therefore comes as a bit of a

surprise that they may not to be

filled with sea water (page 1).

Say what now, I hear you say?

Turns out, that the plan may be

freshwater and add some salt in.

It is all to do with the multi-use

of the planned facility, with water

play items, that it may not all

mesh together.

So does it really matter whether

they use sea water? Storm in

a teacup? Tell us what you think

Memorial panels next month

Installation to take

place after Anzac Day

• By Sarla Donovan

PANELS TO protect the the New

Brighton War Memorial will be

installed after Anzac Day.

Questions were raised by residents

after the Woolston Borough Monument

panels were covered in graffiti

less than three weeks after they were

installed.

There have been suggestions that

a railing fence be placed around the

memorial instead of panels, as it

would be less inviting for vandals.

But city council head of parks,

Andrew Rutledge, said it took less

than an hour to remove the graffiti.

The cost was $60 for the materials

and four hours labour.

He said railings would obstruct

the view of the memorial more than

the panels. “There is also potential

that if tagged, the overspray of paint

through the fence might reach the

stone of the war memorial behind.”

New Brighton RSA executive

manager Garry House said he was

still in favour of the panels, so long

as they could be easily cleaned and

the memorial wasn’t affected.

He was looking forward to them

going up.

PROTECTED:

New Brighton

War Memorial

will soon be

protected by

clear panels

similar to

those which

have saved

the Woolston

Borough

Monument from

recent tagging.

Inset –

In Brief

ANNUAL PLAN

The public can give their feedback

on the city council annual plan in

two informal forums held by the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board. The drop-in sessions will be

held on March 29 and April 3 and

are an opportunity for people to

engage in informal feedback and

discussion with board members.

The sessions will be held in the

community board boardroom,

corner of Beresford and Union Sts,

New Brighton, 5.30-6.30pm.

BOARDWALK COST

The full cost of removing and

replacing the damaged boardwalk

along the Avon-Heathcote Estuary

is expected to be known by May 1.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board is expecting a report from

the city council. The council has

allocated $337,000 in the draft annual

plan to remove and repair the

boardwalk.

TOP SPOT FOR BUS DRIVER

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Gizmo’s Adventure

Gizmo, an 11 year old Ginger tabby

from Sydney, presented to Catherine

one morning with an acute left

hindleg lameness. He wasn’t placing

any weight on the leg and seemed

in a lot of pain. Catherine suspected

a femoral fracture due to his leg

swinging and the obvious angulation

mid femur. No other injuries were

seen. He had normal neurological

function. All his nails were scuffed and

worn. Most often we see these injuries

with road traffic accidents. Blood work

the previous week was great.

Catherine performed a digital xray to

confirm her suspicions and Gizmo was

immediately placed on intravenous

fluids with pain relief ( a fentanyl CRI)

and started on penicillin. A transverse

femoral fracture located proximal third

femur was diagnosed. His diaphragm

was intact, as was his bladder and all

his other abdominal organs looked

fine. Surgery to repair the fracture or

amputation were the only options

available. This fracture couldn’t be

left to just heal on its own. The clients

were informed of the options – a

referral to a specialist orthopaedic

surgeon to plate the femur or IM

pinning and cerclage wire performed

at McMaster & Heap Vet practice.

We repeated blood work to make

sure Gizmo was still in good health to

sustain an anaesthetic. The IM pinning

option was adopted. His ongoing

arthritic issues would have made

losing a hindleg difficult for him to

cope with, especially at 11 years old.

Dr Michele McMaster performed the

surgery within 24 hours of Gizmo

being admitted. It is important

with this type of injury to get those

bone ends realigned as soon as

possible. The anaesthetic and surgery

went without a hitch. Gizmo was

connected to our Cardell monitoring

machine. The nurses can record his

heart rate, blood pressure, breathing

rate, body core temperature and

oxygen saturation every 5 minutes

during his anaesthetic. All his vital

signs were excellent. I placed a

large intramedullary pin through

the medullary cavity of his femur to

reduce the fracture and align the

ends of the femur.

A single cerclage

wire was also placed

to create as much

stability as possible.

Post operative xrays

confirmed perfect

placement. Now the

rest is up to Gizmo.

Gizmo was discharged

3 days later able to stand and get

into his dirt tray, eating up a storm

and with the surgical site looking

great. He was starting to place the

paw when he left here. He will be in a

cage for 4-6 weeks to allow as much

immobility as possible for fracture

healing. I will remove the pin in about

6-8 weeks once the fracture site has

calloused and healed. Gizmo will be

back weekly for us to check on his

progress. A great outcome all around.

Kitchen blazes and

bathtub shenanigans

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

OVER THE past couple of weeks, several

people have had the misfortune of having

the Fire Service called to their house

because of a blaze in the kitchen.

At one in Hoon Hay recently,

firefighters had to smash a window to get

into a well-locked house with a pot on

fire on the stove.

There’s got to be a sinking feeling when

you get the call after having gone out that

there’s a fire at your house.

I know it’s easy to forget and, in

this case, smoke was the only cause of

damage to the house, but the possibility

of a complete disaster is certainly

there. You’ve just got to remember to

switch elements off.

A lady in a motorised wheelchair had

the misfortune of becoming stuck up

against a wall when the control panel

for her scooter failed in Bellbrook Tce,

Shirley. She obviously, and fortunately,

had her phone with her and had the

presence of mind to call 111.

This wasn’t a fire. It was a call for

help. And the St Albans crew that

responded had to break in to her house to

free her. It’s the sort of thing firefighters

do without complaint. So well done to

the St Albans crew.

Finally, you know the stainless steel or

brass grill in the plug hole of your bath? I

bet you can’t get your finger down it, but

a small child can – just.

However, getting their finger out is

another matter. The Addington crew had

to spend almost an hour dismantling the

bath in Hoon Hay Rd to do it.

There was no injury, just a very

relieved wee fellow when he was

eventually freed.

Call for more collaboration between educators

Linwood College

principal Richard

Edmundson

writes about

connecting

early childhood,

primary,

secondary and tertiary

education providers to

create better outcomes for

students

Should we be optimistic about

New Zealand education?

The answer to this question is a

resounding yes. Does this mean

that everything is completely

rosy? Of course not.

An emerging possibility is the

concerning irony that the legal

requirement for schools to report

publicly on children’s achievement

through national standards

and NCEA may in fact be

harming educational progress,

the precise opposite of what

this originally well-intentioned

policy meant to achieve.

But there is an educationally

bright light emerging in the form

of Communities of Learning.

COLs are about schools working

together to ensure all children

can achieve their potential. It is

collaboration rather than artificial

competition.

‘It takes a village to educate

a child’ comes to mind here.

This is not just between schools

within one sector – such as

neighbouring primary schools –

but across sectors.

Linwood College is in the Tamai

COL, working with six other

schools in Linwood-Woolston, as

well as early childhood centres

and tertiary organisations.

We have always known that

too many students find moving

from primary to secondary

school difficult and experience

the “transition dip.” Likewise,

transitions from early childhood

to primary, and from secondary

to tertiary and the workplace,

do not go as seamlessly as they

should for too many students

FUTURE FOCUS: Linwood

College principal Richard

Edmundson wants more

information shared between

education providers.

and their families.

Successful COLs focus on seeing

the whole person and create

age-appropriate pathways.

This means the school, students

and families know what

successful learning skills the

students already have and come

into the new school with, and

they deliberately build on these

successes. It means teachers

across the COL working together

and sharing information wisely.

This is not rocket science, but

amazingly it has not been a priority

in New Zealand education

since 1990 and the tomorrow’s

schools legislation.

Thankfully, we are now waking

up to the power of collaboration.

The South Brighton

Residents Association is

frustrated with the city

council’s response to

questions over earthquake

donations

Colin Houston – Last year,

Mayor Lianne Dalziel promised

to make the repair of footpaths in

the east a top priority. Now, many

months later, there appears to be

no political will to do anything

of the sort. Many streets still have

dangerous footpaths, especially

for the elderly.

It’s time the city council appoints

a “man with a clipboard”

to take note of all hazardous footpaths

and then, systematically,

get these fixed.

The city council has no trouble

stumping up with $25,000 to

put protective covers around the

New Brighton War Memorial, yet

it allocates just a miserly $30,000

for the repair of footpaths in

Pages Rd.

Claire Lawrie – It made my

eyes water in disbelief that city

council could leave this in such

a disgraceful condition. I expect

them to fix this up, whatever it

costs. I don’t think it would pass

the health and safety test.

Jon Tater – They should repair

the footpath asap. The Pages

Rd footpath is not only well-used,

it is the gateway to the seaside

suburb and main access to the

ocean. Not a good look for the

city having broken footpaths in

this critical area. If this footpath

was on the west side, it would

have been fixed by now.

money went as well.

Christchurch trending towards a balanced

market…

As we make the run towards the end of another

financial year, it would appear the heat of 2015/2016

is cooling slightly. The Christchurch real estate market

is easing, a time at which choice of agent is always

critical. There is more stock than buyers and the new

LVR and bank policies continue to affect the lower end

of the market limiting activity for both investors and

first home buyers. On a positive note, the average

house price in February sat at $563,333 – 11% up on

the same time last year, and the average number of

days to sell has remained consistent at 44.

Plenty of mileage in ‘As Is’ sales…

With over 365 ‘As Is, Where Is’ sales under our belt,

the team on the east are constantly receiving requests

for assistance and consultation with regards

to problematic properties across the city. We have

the experience to get the job done, a tried and true

marketing template, and an extensive online database

of 1,300+ buyers.

Much of the value and esteem the community

attributes to our team relates to the support, encouragement

and assistance we have provided over the

past few years. Our offices have acted as a beacon for

locals requiring clarity when dealing with complex real

estate matters.

fresh start, or you’ve been thinking of making a career

New central ambulance base

will serve as a hub for St John

• By Noah Graham

ST JOHN has opened its new $5

million ambulance hub.

More than 170 people gathered

as Prime Minister Bill English

officially opened the central

city ambulance hub earlier this

month.

The Christchurch Ambulance

Hub on 150 St Asaph St will act

as the central part of a network

of ambulance bases across the

city which will make the service

more efficient, St John Christchurch

area committee chair

Graham Gillespie said.

He said all ambulance shifts

in Christchurch will start and

finish at the central station, maximising

ambulance officers’ time

and allowing staff to respond

quicker to patients.

“It will let us spend more time

caring for our patients and the

community,” he said.

Mr Gillespie said it was quite

an emotional time for many of

the St John staff who had worked

in the mud and water in the St

Asaph St car park after the February

2011 earthquake.

After that, the staff were based

out of a rented station on Disraeli

St, which has been closed. They

will eventually move from their

A POP-UP art gallery is helping

The exhibition of art by seven

Ms Brown said she encouraged

HARCOURTS TWISS-KEIR

PEGASUS POST

Harcourts

Twiss-Keir

returns to Shirley

Real estate business Harcourts Twiss-Keir has

long been a well-known and respected business

in Shirley, and for almost 20 years the company

serviced the local area from its premises in

Marshland Road.

Unfortunately, damage from the 2011

earthquakes and the subsequent economic

downturn meant the office had to close, franchise

holder James Twiss says.

“Despite being closed, we have never forgotten

the strong roots we had in the area, and although

we have wanted to come back, the limited amount

of commercial space in the area for a property

business prevented it,” James says.

“However, we have always kept an eye out for

something suitable, and about two and a half

years ago the opportunity arose to purchase a site

at 39 Marshland Road.”

Following the lengthy rezoning and consent

process, the property, an art deco style residence

built in the late 1930s, has been completely

renovated throughout, transforming it from a

residential home to a real estate office.

“It’s quite a unique building in the way it was

constructed and we wanted to keep the original

layout,” says James.

“It was quite difficult to work with so it was an

interesting process and we are thrilled with the

results. We are now based back in Shirley where

we had always intended to return, and we are

looking forward to helping the local community

with their real estate and property management

requirements again.”

A full service real estate office, Harcourts

Twiss-Keir provides sales and listings for all

residential and lifestyle properties, and will have

up to 10 salespeople in the office, together with

administration staff and property management

specialists.

Arguably the most recognisable real estate

brand in Christchurch, Harcourts was voted the

Most Trusted Real Estate Brand in a Readers’

Digest survey for four years running.

“As the largest real estate business in

Christchurch, for Harcourts the well-established

residential area of Shirley is an obvious place to

be, and we are excited to be back,” says James.

The new Harcourts Twiss-Keir office officially

opens for business later this month.

JO HAYES

NEWS UPDATE

CHRISTCHURCH EAST

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. Nga mihi mahana.

Healthy debate good for NZ

It seems that this year has kicked off with a hiss and a

roar, and a lot of excitement and debate about a raft

of important issues that affect us Kiwis.

Strong and robust debate about these things is the

backbone of a democracy like New Zealand, and I for

one welcome it. It’s also a key part of my new role as

Social Services Select Committee chair. Sometimes we

deal with tough issues that need innovative solutions,

and most of all, your input.

Did you know that you can have your say on

any bill passed by Parliament, when it goes to

a Select Committee to debate?

Visit www.parliament.nz to have your say.

Speaking of debate…

I recently watched the third heat at the Russell

McVeagh Canterbury Regional Secondary Schools

debating event at University of Canterbury. Christ’s

College (negating team) and Christchurch Boys

(affirming team)

both put up a

good fight, but

Christ’s College

had the edge

and took the win

in the end. Who

knows how many

future politicians

there may be in this bunch? Congratulations to both

teams: you both put up a superb argument!

New initiative for tidy kiwis!

It was fun to spend some time with the vibrant and

enthusiastic Student Volunteer Army earlier this month,

cleaning up South Spit, South Shore and South Brighton.

But really, our environment shouldn’t need volunteers to

pick up litter if we all

share a responsibility

to protect it.

The Government has

just announced that

it’s investing $3 million

in a “Do the Right

Thing” campaign to

stop people littering.

We all know that

the environmental

harm from litter is not just the aesthetics but the harm

plastic, paper and cans can do our waterways, marine

environment and wildlife.

So let’s keep up the good work, Christchurch East, and

show the rest of the country what it means to be tidy

Kiwis!

A hearty welcome to Haeta

It was fantastic

to join Prime

Minister Bill English

and Minister of

Education Hekia

Parata at the

opening of Haeta

Community

Campus on 2

March. The stateof-the-art

learning

environment is

revitalising education in the east.

Haeata’s foundation Principal Andy Kai Fong, along with

the Establishment Board of Trustees, should be hugely

proud of the work they’ve done to set up the new school.

I’m so impressed that the school already has a role of

more than 950 students.

Giving young people the best possible start to their

lives through high-quality education is one of the most

important investments we can make as a Government.

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day garnered a lot of attention around

the world on 8 March.

Here in New Zealand, I was encouraged to hear Deputy Prime

Minister Paula Bennett affirm that along with seeing more

women in leadership positions, she wants to eliminate the

unacceptable level of family violence against women, and

ensure that we pay women what they are worth. Couldn’t

agree more!

You’ll be seeing

me around

Hopefully you’ve all seen

my van on the last Friday

of every month, as my

team and I visit all around

Christchurch East to chat

about what’s on your mind.

If not, you won’t be able to

miss it now: check out our

fabulous new sign writing! We’d love to see you this Friday 31

March. Check out the details on the right-hand side of this

page.

Happy Easter everyone

It’s just around the corner and it’s a long weekend that we all

look forward to. I want to wish you all a safe and happy Easter

with friends and family. Please drive safely if you’re heading out

of town and enjoy a well-deserved break.

New entrants

Polyfest in the red zone

DRUMMING, chanting,

singing and dancing lit up the

stage at the annual Polyfest

celebration recently.

It was held in the Dallington

red zone this year, with 19

Christchurch schools involved.

Stage manager Maria

Lemalie said the event was

a celebration rather than a

competition.

“We don’t have the

numbers of Pacific people in

Christchurch to specialise like

they do in Auckland. They

might have four to five stages,

each for a different Pacific

nation,” she said.

“Here we have lots of non-

Pacific students participating so

it’s a real coming together for

people.”

She said the venue was

magnificent and it was great to

be able to hold the event in the

east this year.

The

Principal’s

Desk

Kia ora and welcome to all readers.

Harry romana, Principal

Mairehau high School remains a solid,

viable co-educational school option in the east of christchurch. We

are working with other schools, clusters, and community sector groups

to develop and implement actions which will enhance the provision

of education for all students in christchurch. i take this opportunity to

welcome students and staff from Queenspark School to our Mairehau

high School technology programme. each week Year 7 and 8 students

from Queenspark School are provided with a range of exciting learning

programmes.

NCEA Results

Once again, we are very proud of the success of our 2016 NCEA students. The

percentage of our students achieving NCEA compares very favourably with similar

schools nationwide, and indeed with all schools across the country.

2016 NCEA L1-L3 and University Entrance:

Mairehau High School compared with National Data (Participation Based)

The school has recently purchased 66 brand new computers, and a

generous donor who wants to remain anonymous has provided an

additional 26 high spec computers to support teaching and learning

strategies. cyclone computers are providing our teachers with

professional support to enhance learning programmes.

in 2017 Mairehau high School is implementing a ‘Bring your own Device’

(BYoD) strategy to support student learning. The new advanced icT

resources will go a long way to ensure that our students are ready for the

ever-changing world of technology. in addition, our school is developing

a new School app to promote better communication between our

students, parents, staff and community. This will be launched in the

coming days.

another innovation this year includes the expansion of our collaborative

shared Flexible learning environment programme which includes Year

9 and Year 10 students. The programme provides an opportunity for

independent, shared and cross- collaborative learning.

all schools want students to access quality education outcomes, to access

quality teaching, and quality learning. We wish our students to have

opportunities which will enable them to become decent, worthwhile

citizens of the world.

Plenty has already happened at Mairehau high School this term. i am very

proud of the academic achievements of Mairehau high School students.

our 2016 Ncea results were just outstanding.

i congratulate all students on your achievements, and i also congratulate

your parents, family and your teachers and all who have supported you

during these years of school. These are exciting times for Mairehau high

School.

We are extremely proud of all students and all they continue to

achieve. We congratulate our top academic achievers for 2016 and

wish them all the best for their academic studies in 2017.

Scholarship Recipient

Mairehau High School is very proud of its

latest New Zealand Scholarship recipient

in English, Jake Jeffries.

A Scholarship exam is demanding for even

the most able candidates and requires

students to demonstrate high-level critical

thinking, abstraction and generalisation,

and to integrate, synthesise and apply

knowledge, skills, understanding and

ideas to complex situations. Only the

top 3% of candidates in the country are

awarded Scholarship, so it is a fantastic

achievement. Jake not only gets to enjoy

the prestige accompanying such an award,

but also receives a cash payment of $500.

In preparation for the exam, Jake attended

weekly English Scholarship Group

meetings. This comprises a small group

of top English students in Year 13 who meet to discuss texts and ideas, and to share

some food. Jake also devoted a lot of his own time to study, and is a voracious reader.

Throughout his schooling, Jake has stood out as a mature, responsible and respectful

young man. His teachers speak very highly of him: “Jake possesses a sharp, inquiring

mind, complemented by a fierce intelligence. He is interested in the world around

him and is widely read. I always look forward to him sharing his views in class,

which he does with a quiet confidence. He frequently displays both perception

and empathy. Jake’s obvious talents led to him being invited to join the English

Scholarship Group this year. His contributions to the group are highly valued.”

Jake has also been part of the Mairehau High School Gifted and Talented (GATE)

programme for the past four years. He has taken full advantage of the opportunities

this has afforded, attending conferences and field trips to provide further extension

and aid with his studies. Jake enjoys getting involved in and exploring a range of

subjects, ranging from the CPIT ‘Have a Go’ day to the University of Canterbury

criminal justice seminar. This willingness to participate in the wider life of the school

and community further reflects Jake’s maturity, work ethic and commitment to his

studies.

Jake Jeffries has been a real asset to our school community. He now intends to take a

gap year before beginning university studies in 2018. Jake can be immensely proud,

not only of his academic achievements, but of the way he conducts himself, and of

the positive manner in which he relates to others.

Academic Student Executive – Ivannia Osuna Fregoso

Ivannia is a Year 13 student who successfully applied for the role of Academic

Student Executive for 2017.

Along with Ben Lowe, who is also a Year 13 student and Peer Support

Coordinator, Ivannia will work with all levels of our students and provide the

support they need to achieve NCEA.

Ivannia and Ben are currently introducing quizzes that can be used during a non

teaching form time.

With the assistance of the school’s Deans, it is important that Ivannia gets to

know all the students, and in particular the year 9s.

As well as her role as Academic Executive, Ivannia will have to manage her own

learning and study. Her academic resume for 2016 is impressive, being awarded

NCEA Level 2 with an excellence endorsement and having subject excellence

endorsements in English, Photography, History and Classics. This year she will be

working hard to achieve NCEA Level 3 with excellence.

Ivannia knows how important it is to have a good academic background and also

the effort that is required to ensure this.

in touch with Mairehau High

• By Julia Evans

MAIREHAU HIGH School

students Kees Gifford-

Whanau and Michael Scanlan

are excited about keeping

in touch with their school

through its new app.

The app is set to be released

in the coming weeks.

School deputy principal

Rebecca Swanson said the idea

came after a staff discussion

about how to make it easier for

parents and the community

to find out more information

about the school.

“With society’s ever

increasing reliance on mobile

devices, we thought an app

was the perfect option,” she

said.

Another driver was the

unreliability of phone

lines during earthquakes –

specifically motivated by the

aftermath of the Kaikoura

earthquake, which interrupted

NCEA and scholarship exams.

“Our app will help mitigate

any similar situations in the

future, when it’s crucial for

information to go to a lot of

people, quickly,” Ms Swanson

said.

Alerts can be sent to all

users with key information or

even just to certain groups.

“When you download it,

you can subscribe to different

alert groups, whether it be a

sports team, a year level or a

scholarship study group.”

The app was developed

SCHOOLS

in conjunction with Snapp

Mobile and has other features,

which include parents being

able to send in absences,

contact school staff, sync with

the school events calendar,

daily notices and newsletters.

TECH:

Mairehau

High students

Kees Gifford-

and Michael

Scanlan will

be able to stay

connected with

their school

using its new

The school is excited

to launch the app to the

community and Ms

Swanson said it hopes to

strengthen its relationships

with families and students

even further.

Avon ran out winners 9-6.

The combination of Libby Bird

and Sarah Walcott fed the ball

to Jackie Eden who netted the

winning goal in the final two

minutes to take the title.

The competition is considered

part of the pre-season for a number

of senior teams, providing an

opportunity to play hockey on a

weekly basis and develop fitness

and combinations prior to the

commencement of the regular

season.

Matches are six-a-side with

goals worth three points.

Avon will look to ride their

form into the main competition,

which starts on Saturday.

REECE FALCK competed with

the junior Davis Cup tennis

squad in India and, in spite of

the team finishing ninth, he said

the experience was amazing.

The 14-year-old Burwood

resident was part of the squad,

including George Stoupe, of

Wellington, and Chris Zhang, of

Auckland, which went to New

Delhi on March 11-19.

They were the underdogs of

their pool, which included tournament

hosts India, as well as

Japan and Hong Kong.

“We came last in our pool, but

won all our games in the ninth

to 16th place playoffs,” Falck

said.

They beat the Philippines,

Singapore and India to claim

ninth spot.

He said it was a really good

experience and he learnt a

lot from the other players he

competed against.

“There is nothing too major

I’ll need to change, just a few

subtle things. I just have to keep

working hard,” he said.

The culture of India, he said,

was completely different to New

Zealand.

“It is quite chaotic. The

streets are so busy and loud and

UP-AND-COMING: Reece Falck (right) was part of the

junior Davis Cup tennis team with George Stoupe (left), of

Wellington, and Chris Zhang, of Auckland. The team has

returned home from New Delhi, India.

obviously there is a lot more

people,” he said.

Falck’s love for the game

started when he was four.

His dad and coach, Andrew

Falck, got him into the sport and

he hasn’t looked back.

“It is a whole family thing,” he

said.

Younger sister Tatum, 10, plays

as well, and his mum, Angie,

swings a racket around every

now and again.

The best player in the family is

up for debate.

“I’d hope it is me,” Falck said.

He aims to have a crack at

making tennis a career and said

a stint over in the United States

could be the ticket to making

that dream come true.

But for now he will turn

his focus to the next few

tournaments to get his ranking

up and then look to compete at

the nationals.

“It was great to get some

international competition and

I really look forward to more of

it,” he said.

good oral health,” says Keith.

A major component of Keith’s work is

under IV sedation, which is available for

people that are very nervous about visiting

the dentist. He has performed more than

2000 Intravenous sedation procedures and

the clinic is equipped with the latest advanced

equipment for sedation monitoring. He has

a special interest in Oral Surgery, Implants

and Intra venous sedation.

For people with damaged or missing teeth,

Zohnia will discuss with them the options

of having crowns, permanent implants or

dentures fitted, all of which have the added

advantage of helping clients regain their

functional bite as well as improve their

smile and overall confidence. She

has a special interest in Cosmetic

dentistry, Root Canals and Geriatric

dentistry. Her calm approach and

special individual attention to detail

has helped deal with most common

dental issues in her patients.

Hygienist Amy specialises in

the overall maintenance of healthy

teeth and gums. She educates her

clients on how to look after their

disease, Gingivitis is one of the main reasons

why people lose their teeth, the dentists

point out, while research also indicates that

gum disease in pregnant women can mean

a higher chance of premature birth and low

birth weight.

Dry mouth or reduced salivary flow,

which is caused by certain medications that

people take can also lead to gum problems

and tooth decay. By visiting the hygienist

regularly, gum problems can be prevented,

and consequently tooth decay as well as

more serious health issues can be avoided.

Bi-Annual Report

I’m proudly standing up for Christchurch East and Backing the Kiwi Dream. This report is an overview of my work and activities over the

last six months in Christchurch East, in my portfolios and in Parliament. Importantly, this report shows what I’m doing about your concerns

and the needs of our community.

Six years on from the Canterbury earthquakes, I’m encouraged by the progress

we have made. More claims are settled, more roads repaved, and more homes

have been rebuilt or repaired. While fewer people are asking me for help with

EQC or insurance claims, I understand these are still ongoing concerns for

many of you. I’m continuing to get answers, so please get in touch if you need

my help with your earthquake issues.

Sadly, an increasing number of people are unable to live the Kiwi Dream.

I’m receiving more requests for help with housing, hardship and WINZ-related

issues at a time when the government is selling Housing New Zealand homes

and cutting access to benefits. This is simply unacceptable. Everyone deserves

a warm, dry place to live and I’ll do everything in my power to stop the sale of

2500 State Homes in Christchurch.

New Zealand Labour Identity Guidelines Version 2.0 | February 2016

Our logo

There have been plenty of highlights over the past six months. Public

submissions opened on the New Brighton Hot Salt Water Pools project, the

Spring Music Festival, AFFIRM fun-day in Aranui, the Cook Island Soldiers of

World War One commemorative service, and celebrating the 100 years of the

Labour Party!

Thank you to everyone who responded to my many surveys, especially about

housing. I appreciate your participation and your valuable feedback, which

helps me better serve our community. This bi-annual report outlines what I’ve

been doing for you. As always, I welcome your feedback and if I can be of

service, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Activities in the East

What’s important to you?

Twice a month my team and I travel around Christchurch East in my mobile office,

visiting a street corner near you. I want to make it as easy as possible to get in

touch with me and access support.

The Parliamentary Netball team - The Parly Ferns celebrating our victory

over Australia and retaining the Diggeress Cup!

You can find me on the first Monday of each month at: Linwood 9am - 9:40am,

Linwood Avenue outside Salvation Army. Dallington 9:50am - 10:30am, Cnr

Gayhurst Rd & Claydon Place. Richmond 10:40am - 11:20am, Stanmore Rd at

Richmond Playground. Shirley 11:30am - 12:10pm, Cnr Marshlands Rd and

Hammersley Ave.

And on the first Friday of each month at: Bromley 9am - 9:40am, Bromley Rd

outside Community Centre. Wainoni 9:50am - 10:30am, Wainoni Rd near

Shortland St West. Burwood 10:40am - 11:20am, 17 Parnwell Rd near Education

Centre. Parklands 11:30am - 12:10pm, Queenspark Drive outside Harcourts.

Here are just a few examples of how I’m representing you, advocating on your

behalf, and working to improve Christchurch East.

Calling on the government, with Rape Prevention & Wellington Women’s Refuge to halt

the collection of individual client data.

As the Labour Party Spokesperson for Sexual and Domestic Violence, as well as

Spokesperson for the Community and Voluntary Sector, I was appalled that the

government wants organisations like Rape Crisis and Women’s

Refuge to disclose personal details of the vulnerable people coming to them for

help, in order to keep their funding.

I will continue to be a strong advocate for victims of violence and sexual assault.

This is a cause very close to my heart, and every month I speak with families,

groups and organisations who support victims or run programs for offenders. By

continuing to have open and honest discussions, we raise awareness, find

solutions and change our society for the better.

There was a fantastic turnout at Blue Smoke at the Tannery to hear Leader Andrew

Little on his State of the Regions tour. Common topics in both

Andrew’s speech and your questions, were building more homes, stopping the

sale of state housing, and better funding for mental health services and the Canterbury

District Health Board.

With Adam McGrath from local band The Eastern during

Leader Andrew Little’s State of the Regions tour.

I know how important these issues are to you. Sadly, queries around health,

hardship and housing are replacing earthquake issues and EQC as the main

topics in my Electorate Office. If you need help or advice around accommodation,

health or financial hardship, please don’t hesitate to come talk to me or my team.

We are here to support you.

In December, I was elected Vice-Chair of the Commonwealth Women

Parliamentarians (CWP). Even though we make up half the global population,

women are disproportionately under-represented in leadership positions, so the

CWP aims to increase female representation and mainstream gender issues in

commonwealth parliaments around the world.

I’m proud to serve my country and the Commonwealth as Vice-Chair of the of the

Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians.

As a woman from an ethnic minority in New Zealand’s Parliament, I believe it is

my duty to bring other women through to positions of power and influence. I’m

committed to serving my local community of Christchurch East, while taking every

opportunity to improve the lives of women across the Commonwealth.


With Councillor Glenn Livingstone after

completing City 2 Surf.

Groups like Aviva do amazing work to support our community.

It was great catching up at the Linwood Youth Festival.

Poto meeting with a delegation from the Pacific Youth

Leadership And Transformation Council.

Christchurch East is a wonderful mix of vibrant communities. I love getting involved in your activities,

projects and celebrating the diversity that makes us stronger together. What better example than the

Linwood Youth Festival Experience!

At LYFE, everyone from schools, dance crews, bands, organisations, to kapa haka groups and more joined

together in a spirited display of culture, diversity, and achievement that makes me so proud to be a

Cantabrian. Another real highlight was joining Mayor Lianne Dalziel and the amazing Student Volunteer

Army clean up the Southshore Spit Reserve: a huge thank you to the 700 volunteers who worked to

beautify these wonderful communal grounds.

The past six months have also had their challenges. I want to acknowledge and celebrate those staff

members, school board trustees, volunteers, parents, and, most importantly, students from Aranui High,

Aranui Primary, Wainoni, and Avondale Schools as they closed their doors for the last time.

Working with Mayor Lianne Dalziel to

clean up Southshore Spit Reserve.

During our most troubled times, these schools were golden threads in the fabric of our community, holding

students and families together as essential hubs for earthquake response and recovery.. These schools

provided the joy of learning and the magic of discovery in the lives of our tamariki.

The November 2016 earthquakes and the Civil Defence response raised a number of issues in the East,

especially for deaf and hearing-impaired residents. It’s my hope that by working with Civil Defence and

community organisations we can come up with a warning system that gives a clear message to everyone.

These are just some of the highs and lows for the people of Christchurch East, as shared by you when you

visit my Electorate Office, attend one of my community clinics, or have a Cup of Tea with your MP at the

Seaside Market in New Brighton. Thank you for taking the time to share what’s important to you, and

allowing me to advocate on your behalf.

With Leader Andrew Little

on his State of the Regions tour.

Fighting for justice with Jerome Mika, Imogen Beynon and

Kelvin Davis so Kiwis in Australia can access basic legal rights.

Ready to open the New Brighton Spring Festival with the

St James School Choir.

Impaired to Civil Defence information.
