New mower

for red zone

volunteer

• By Sarla Donovan

BRYAN FAIRBAIRN’S pretty

happy with his new $9000 mower.

He maintains 9ha of red zone

land and this is the third mower

he’s been through since starting

more than three years ago.

“I’ve gone up to a 54in John

Deere. I wanted the next size up

but it’s $20,000 and we’re retired

so I’ve got to be reasonable.”

Mr Fairbairn and his wife Colleen

spend hours each day mowing

and tidying the land along

New Brighton Rd so it looks like

a park.

School

zones

could limit

single-sex

learning

• By Sarla Donovan

THE PRINCIPALS of Shirley

Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ High

Schools are concerned that

families across the east retain the

choice of a single-sex education,

regardless of whether they live in

the zone.

The two schools are likely to

share a zone when they co-locate

to new premises in 2019.

Both schools are to be rebuilt

at QE II Park after their existing

sites were damaged in the 2011

earthquakes.

Their boards are currently

working with each other and the

Ministry of Education to try and

thrash out a new, shared zone.

Avonside Girls’ High School

principal Sue Hume said while

the zone needed to give access to

those close to the new campus,

it was important to preserve the

choice of single-sex education for

families right across the east.

She said the school had always

taken a significant portion of

students from out of zone.

“Historically we provide services

for families in the east and

we want to continue to give that

choice to families across the east

of the city.

Pool allowed to reopen

• By Sarla Donovan

THE CENTRAL New Brighton

School community pool looks

set to reopen next summer after

gaining permission to occupy

the site for the next two years.

The pool was to be demolished

after the school merged

with Freeville and North New

Brighton schools in 2015.

The Ministry

of Education

wanted to

demolish the

pool without

consulting the

community,

which caused

Tim Baker

outrage, and

Strategic Urban

Rejuvenation Force asked the

ministry if it could investigate

whether the pool could be saved.

It decided keeping the pool

was viable, but only temporarily

until the replacement QE II Park

was completed.

The SURF Community Trust

this week received a draft licence

to occupy from the ministry,

until April 2019.

It now needs $20,000 to bring

the pool up to safety standards

and expects running costs to be

around $40,000 a year.

The trust is also looking for

volunteers to help maintain and

run the pool. A yearly family

pass would cost $150.

The trust said the pool would

not be in competition with

Rawhiti $2 pool as it would have

different opening hours and a

different pricing model.

Coastal-Burwood community

RAINBOW’S

END: The

Central New

Brighton

School pool will

be available

for community

use for the

next two years.

Groups are

also looking for

tenants for nine

classrooms on

the old school

site.

board member Tim Baker said

it would be a cost-effective asset

for the community which would

be well used.

“When North New Brighton

School pool was opened up to

the community during summer

months, hundreds of people

used it every day.”

Meanwhile, nine empty classrooms

at Central New Brighton

School will shortly be available

for community use.

ReNew Brighton is asking for

community groups and individuals

to register their interest in

residency at what it is called the

Old School Community Hub.

In Brief

BURWOOD AFC HOME

Burwood Association Football

Club will continue using Clare

Park after its lease was renewed

by the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board last week.

Clare Park has been the club’s

home ground since it was first

started in 1972. The new lease of

33 years will be broken into three

terms of 11 years.

NEW PUMP STATION

Close to $2 million will be spent

fixing one of the city’s major

pump stations to restore prequake

capacity and replace ageing

equipment. The city council said

the money would maximise the

life of pump station 205 on New

Brighton Rd, which provides land

drainage and flood protection to

the nearby area by pumping water

from Horseshoe Lake into the

Avon River during storm events.

SHOP FRONT MURALS

A former tattoo parlour will

be the first shop front in New

Brighton to feature windows

painted with scenes from the

suburb’s heyday in the 1950s.

BrighterNewBrighton organiser

Daniel Manchester came up with

the idea of covering shop windows

and doors with scenes of bustling

activity inside. The first building

owner gave agreement last week

and Mr Manchester said he was

planning to recreate a bike shop.

Veterinary practice

OUR VISIT TO UC

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA

Steve, Isaac and myself recently spent time

at UC Davis, the #1 Veterinary school in the

world. For 2 years running it has received

this huge accolade and when you are

there you can see why. It operates and is

the size of a mini CHCH Public hospital.

They are a teaching hospital as well as

seeing referral patients and first opinion

clients. Their specialities include 24/7

emergency and critical care, cardiology,

neurology, ophthalmology,

oncology and surgery. They

were originally set up to

see 5500 patients per year,

last year they saw 50,000

patients. Everyone was so

friendly and helpful and

enthusiastic about being

part of this college. It had a

wonderful vibe... Isaac was

hooked.

Approximately 140 students

get accepted yearly in to

Davis, with around 10% being

male. It cost about US$45,000

for tuition( $64000 NZL)

and then there is living costs on top of

that. Vet students on average come out

owing US $135,000. These students have

spent the previous 4 years obtaining an

excellent undergraduate degree just to

get accepted, majoring in science and

maths. There are 30 colleges of Veterinary

Medicine in the US and each year about

3000 students get accepted. About 40%

of students who apply get accepted

somewhere. In your 3rd year you start to

branch off in your area of interest – either

companion animal, equine, mixed practice

or production animals.

After their 4 year degree at Davis, most

will apply for 1-2 year internship at another

Veterinary College to further their skills

in an area they are interested in. Davis

don’t offer internships. Our freshman

(first year) guide loves dentistry so her

plans are to become a specialist in this

field. After her internship, she then needs

to apply for a residency at one of the 30

colleges, which could be anything from

3-5 years more study!! These are hard to

come by, and you have to be the best of

the bunch, although a Vet degree from

UC Davis stands you in good steed. So to

be a specialist in your field in the US takes

between 13-15 years, and the debt these

students accrue is massive, a few get

scholarships, but most have to pay. I met a

vet in her 40’s who still has a student loan.

Steve spent 2 days tagging along with

ophthalmology specialists, residents and

students on rotation. First and second

year students get at least 2 weeks of

ophthalmology per year ( 27 years ago

when I studied at Massey, 1 day was

dedicated to “eyes”). He really enjoyed the

collegial discussions on cases, sussing out

all the latest equipment, chatting to the

students and doing rounds with them.

Steve came away pleased with his skills

and

expertise in

ophthalmology,

although a

few pieces of

equipment caught

his eye.

Isaac and I

thoroughly

enjoyed our 3 hour tour of the

entire faculty. Isaac loved the exotics

hospital where they house and treat the

reptiles, birds, rabbits, turtles etc. We

also visited their raptor centre, home to

rescued birds of prey that can no longer

see or fly. He also enjoyed watching elbow

arthroscopy on a Golden Retriever from a

viewing room. He could see them cutting

and sucking out torn cartilage from the

video screen. What amazed me was the

amount of people in theatre – 9 in all,

including the chief surgeon, 2 residents,

3 anesthetists and 4th year students.

There were so many people milling

around keenly observing. They do MRI

and CT here and even have a massive

MRI machine that can fit a horse into.

The most expensive patient to date was

a spoodle who underwent dialysis for 18

months, visiting the hospital twice weekly

to have all the toxins removed from her

blood. Her final account was US$140,000!

The most expensive piece of equipment

is a linear accelerator used for radiation

treatment for cancer patients costing a

little over 1 million. Apparently one of the

only surgical procedures NOT performed

here at Davis is renal transplants as when

attempted on cats over 10 years ago,

the survival rate was poor. A handful of

colleges perform renal transplants in cats

including the Pennsylvania and Georgia

College of Vet medicine.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent

at Davis and I thought how amazing,

fun and expensive it would be to be a

student now studying vet medicine at

UC Davis. The students we met were just

so absorbed, very happy and grateful to

be at this world class faculty. I came out

thinking I am so in the right profession.

TRASHED: Some of the rubbish dumped along

Oram Ave in New Brighton.

Rubbish dumping worsens in Brighton

• By Sarla Donovan

NEW BRIGHTON residents

are getting fed up with rubbish

being dumped on streets.

Chessa Crow has lived in

Oram Ave for seven years

and said the problem was

getting worse.

“There are upwards of

three dumps of rubbish at

any one time.”

City council records show

a big increase in Oram Ave,

and nearby Hood, Rodney and

Shackleton Sts, over the past two

Chessa

Crow

years. There were 15 rubbish

pick-ups in the year to April and

the same amount the previous

year, costing the city council

around $1000, plus

dump and tonnage

charges.

In 2014/15, there were

only four pick-ups.

A city council

spokeswoman said the

number had “increased

from a few years

ago, but are now possibly

steadying.”

It costs about $35 to take a

load to the dump, plus tonnage

costs of $200 a tonne.

Mrs Crow said she had never

caught anyone in the act.

“I imagine they’re midnight

marauders,” she said.

Couches, beds, bikes and

televisions make regular

appearances.

Mrs Crow believed the

problem could be put down to a

combination of laziness, the cost

of taking things to the dump and

a perception that New Brighton

is a “derelict place anyway, so

why not.”

She used the city council’s

Snap Send Solve app to report

incidents, and it usually took

three to five days to collect the

dumped rubbish.

The city council might also

need to look at alternatives, she

said.

“I’m originally from Toronto

and they have drop-off locations

where, once a month, you can

take your televisions or couches

and it doesn’t cost.”

The city council spokeswoman

said there were no plans to

introduce a kerbside collection.

•From page 1

“I’m down there whenever it’s

not raining” he said.

He thinks red zone land should

be kept tidy and park-like until

decisions are made on its future.

“We wanted to make it nice

for people going past or walking

through. They often stop and say

thank you. They appreciate it.

And people who used to live there

come back and are very grateful.

They left because they had to but

they come back because they have

connections to the area, they got

married or planted a special tree

there.”

The city council pays for his fuel

but nothing else.

“We’re not allowed to put soil

down or plant anything.”

Burwood ward city councillor

Glenn Livingstone asked city

council staff in April if they could

provide Mr and Mrs Fairbairn

with one red and four green waste

bins to assist them in their work.

He is still waiting to hear back

on whether this is possible.

Mr Fairbairn, 69, said the work

kept him out of his wife’s hair. “I

don’t play golf or go to the pub. It

gives me an awful lot of comfort

and pleasure.”

Personalising learning

A recent

educational

conference

in Singapore

led

Chisnallwood

Intermediate

school

principal

Justin Fields to reflect on

the future of learning

During the last week of term

1, I went to Singapore with the

Canterbury intermediate principals

to visit some local schools

and attend an international

learning conference.

In one of my recent newsletters

I highlighted a visit we had

from Princess Elizabeth School

in Singapore and I was able to

reciprocate and visit them.

The principal and staff who

visited Chisnallwood told me

that they were extremely impressed

by how we personalise

the learning, our extension

classes, our collaborative

teaching practices, the new

mechatronics/electronics/robotics

programme and the fact

that we offer computer science.

Education in Singapore is very

traditional with large class sizes,

students sitting in rows and

lessons being predominantly

teacher-led.

I was surprised by the lack of

IT use in classrooms. The great

news is they want to change, but

the burning question for them

is how?

I believe this is one of the reasons

why Singapore hosted the

international conference – they

wanted to challenge the status

quo and do things differently.

This is not to say that their

system is broken, but rather that

they want to do things better for

the students, to nurture creativity

and personalise the learning.

The reflections for me were

firstly, that no matter where you

are in the world, we all want the

best for our students; secondly,

that what we are doing in New

Zealand and particularly at

Chisnallwood is what we need

to be doing, and finally, that

networking and sharing ideas

improves outcomes for all.

It was an enlightening

trip and I look forward to

implementing the conference

learnings as “we continue to

challenge the margins of time

and explore what is beyond” at

Chisnallwood. Kia Kaha

FLAME FILES

Keep cooking under

control in the kitchen

• Mark Thomas, fire risk

management officer

I KNOW I’ve repeated the advice

about looking when cooking

dozens of times over the years

and it looks very much like it’s

never going to cease completely.

But every now and then I

despair a bit.

Like on Wednesday when

within three-and-a-half-hours

fire trucks responded to three

different cooking incidents.

A house completely filled with

smoke from a forgotten pie in

the microwave in Sockburn was

followed by a pot on the stove,

again filling the house in Kotare

St and a further incident in

Bryndwr where smoke inhalation

was the result for the elderly

occupants.

Any of these could have been

much worse.

A life or a house gone.

But all of them were preventable.

Stay in the kitchen.

The smell of burning in your

home can be frightening for

anyone.

More so if you’re blind.

The occupant of a house in

exact right thing, again on

Wednesday, by phoning 111

and having the local crew there

within minutes.

Turned out to be a tea towel

smouldering on an element.

The potential here was a bit

frightening.

I’ve not mentioned arson here

for a long time.

It’s still occurring but the

removal of most of the empty

houses in the red zone has made

it less visible or newsworthy.

A drum of diesel spread along

the road in the early hours last

Sunday in Wigram was lit and

left by whatever morons thought

it was clever.

property-wise but we’ve got the

beach behind us, the forest next

to us and it’s just magical. So I’ve

never wanted to go to any other

part of the city.

You were principal at Central

New Brighton School during

the merger with Freeville and

North New Brighton schools.

What was that like?

That was gutting for the community

because the school was

really starting to hum – it had a

lovely family feel to it. We only

had about 130 children, there

was great achievement, lots of

lovely social things happening

for the children, we had a really

great bunch of families who

were committed to the school.

You could see that we were on a

good journey so it was absolutely

heart-wrenching, especially

because the community had already

been through so much and

the school was pivotal in keeping

them together and giving them

that sense of normality. So it was

the wrong thing at the wrong

time for the community.

You also lost your home after

the quakes and now you’re

managing the rebuild of Banks

Avenue School. You must be

getting good at managing

change?

It’s actually something I like,

the change process, and something

I think I’m really strategic

at. Being able to see that vision of

where you want to go, but then

have everybody playing a part in

getting there. One of my favourite

quotes is along the lines of

“if you want to build a ship you

don’t just drum up the people to

gather the wood and divide the

work and give orders. You’ve got

to get them to yearn for the vast

and endless sea and then the ship

will get built regardless”. Once

you know where you’re going,

people are on board and the

basic jobs get done.

You seem like someone who’s

got their feet on the ground.

What do you attribute that to?

I had a really bad speech

impediment and went to speech

therapy from age four till age

nine. There are touchstones in

your life and that was a big one

for me, especially as a teacher.

I was labelled a ‘dumb’ child,

sitting in the bottom group of

everything because they couldn’t

understand a thing I was saying.

It made me conscious never to

do that and it’s made me a whole

lot more empathetic towards

children. I like people and children

who are out of the box. I

was always the kid at high school

who had the coloured socks or

the coloured hair, not quite willing

to confirm and fit in, and I

like that quirkiness with children

and celebrate that difference.

And my dad was really quirky.

He was 77 and still rollerblading

around Christchurch with a

mohawk and a pony tail down

the back and his ski poles to keep

him balanced on his rollerblades,

and he was just an optimist. I

can’t remember him being sad or

anybody ever saying a bad word

about him.

You live with your daughter

who’s all grown up and a doctor

now. What’s that like?

I am absolutely blessed. I was

coming back from Greta Valley,

Mercedes had just qualified as a

doctor and had enough money

for a mortgage so we decided

we’d buy a house. We’ve had five

and a half years together, which

has just been delightful. She and

her partner have been looking

for a house for the two of them to

buy and, on Sunday night, it was

confirmed that they’ve got one,

which is fantastic. I’ve got one

more month and they’ll move

into their new house, which is

about six minutes up the road.

My other daughter is in Southshore

so I’m really lucky that

both my daughters are so close

and so family-oriented.

They have very different

occupations.

Yes, Mercedes is a doctor, and

Paris was painting houses during

the earthquakes and then was

working with animals and, at

the moment, is thinking of going

into real estate. She did think

about teaching for all of five

seconds.

Would you encourage her

into that?

I absolutely would, but I think

the children of teachers are well

aware of the long hours; it’s not

the glamorous job you could

potentially think it was. You

take those kids home with you

at night. I know my girls could

probably reel off 10 or 20 names

of children over the years who

have had a special part to play in

our family.

How would you describe your

parenting philosophy?

You can never love a child

too much. But you do have to

do battle. I vividly remember

having a battle with Paris when

she was about 16, and I said I’m

going to take your cellphone

off you as a consequence. I got

verbal abuse from her so there

I am in the middle of the night,

commando-style, sneaking into

her room and getting under her

pillow to get her cellphone and

the next day just smiling and

saying “when we’ve resolved this

you’ll get your phone back”. You

do have your battles but, boy, it’s

worth it – children need boundaries

just to know where they lie.

You were a volunteer medic in

India – what was that like?

Mind-blowing and scary.

Mercedes got to do two overseas

placements in her final year of

medicine and she chose Edinburgh

and India. So I caught

up with her in Edinburgh, and

we tiki-toured through Europe

together and ended up in India.

She was working in an outreach

clinic in Calcutta. I turned up

on the first day just to see where

she was and they handed me a

needle to start doing injections.

I shook my head and said, “no,

I’m a teacher not a doctor.”

They said, “yes, but you can do

injections . . . and you can clean

the wounds.” So my job was

swabbing these horrific injuries,

infections that had almost gone

gangrenous. You’d be cleaning

them out and big hunks of skin

would fall away. I was putting

on antiseptic cream, which here

in New Zealand you might put

on to a minor wound, and that’s

what we were treating these really

serious injuries with.

What’s your next travel

adventure?

Next year I’m going to be 60

so we’re going to Las Vegas. It’s

an open invitation to friends

and family. A week in Vegas and

a week in Hawaii on the way

home. The girls are coming

with their partners and a good

bunch of friends, and who

knows, one or both of the girls

might even get married while

we’re there; that would really be

exciting.

Forgotten figure

• By Sarla Donovan

A BOOK about a forgotten

figure in Canterbury’s history

has finally hit bookstore shelves.

After five years of research

and writing, Shirley Boys’ High

School archivist Colin Amodeo

has completed Tracking Captain

Thomas, a journey in search of

the unacknowledged founder of

Canterbury.

Mr Amodeo said few people

knew about the Captain Joseph

Thomas whose name is commemorated

in the track up

Sumner Valley.

A soldier in Burma and the

Caribbean, Captain Thomas

arrived in New Zealand in 1840,

exploring the east coast from

Port Nicholson to Hawkes Bay.

In 1848, he was appointed as

the chief surveyor for the Canterbury

Association, to choose

a site where a new settlement

could be established.

He chose the site for Christchurch

the following year and

mapped out some of its features,

including Hagley Park and the

four city squares.

He worked for two years developing

Lyttelton and Christchurch

before the settlers came,

but once they arrived he was

criticised for unfinished work.

Mr Amodeo said the towns

were not what the settlers were

MODEL HISTORY: Colin

Amodeo holds a model of

expecting. He said the settlers

believed Captain Thomas was

responsible for the unfinished

settlement, including the lack of

churches and schools.

The Captain Thomas walkway

in Sumner and Thomas St

in Linwood are named after

him, but he is otherwise

unrecognised.

Mr Amodeo began work on

the biography in 2012, fitting it

in around his responsibilities at

Shirley Boys’ High School.

Mr Amodeo said although he

was relieved to finish, he had

already begun his next book.

“It’s about the first resident

magistrate in Akaroa, John

Watson. Like Thomas, a lot of

the material is unknown,” he

said.

PRODUCERS ARE looking

for young people who can sing,

Southshore triathlete in NZ squad

• By Gordon Findlater

SOUTHSHORE triathlete Ari

Graham will test herself against

the world’s best after being

named in the New Zealand

team to compete at the ITU

world championships in the

Netherlands.

Graham, 18, is the only Canterbury

athlete in the team of

six juniors (under-19) who will

compete in September.

She will be joined by Hannah

Knighton, Waikato/Tauranga,

Ainsley Thorpe, Trent Dodds,

Dan Hoy, Auckland, and Janus

Staufenberg, Wanaka.

Mark Elliott, Triathlon New

Zealand’s high performance

director, is excited by the talent

being demonstrated in this team.

“The selected athletes span

across the country from the top

of Auckland to the deep south in

Wanaka,” said Elliott.

“It’s exciting to see the depth

of the athletes coming from

different parts of the country,

as well as the coaches who are

guiding our current and future

champions.”

Over the summer, Graham

competed in the national junior

series, which is contested between

the top under-19-year-olds

in the country over five events.

Graham not only won the

series, she took out all five

events.

She is also a former age group

middle distance and cross country

champion.

After competing in a couple of

school triathlons, she made the

decision late last year to dedicate

her time to triathlon.

She is currently training fulltime

after finishing school at St

Andrew’s College.

The junior squad is the first of

three New Zealand teams to be

premier first XI competition’s

second round tomorrow.

Coach Chris Needle said Lincoln

will be a big test.

“They have a number of players

Shirley recorded a 4-2 win over

Riccarton in the opening round.

Needle said good passing and

possession followed once they had

settled into the game. However,

he would like to see that from the

first whistle tomorrow.

“We will be looking for a more

concentrated start to the game

with good discipline across the

field,” he said.

Shirley players to watch tomorrow

include captain Aaron

Browne in an attacking midfield

role and striker Shaun Regaldo

who, as a year 11 student, is an

exciting prospect at all levels of

the game, Needle said.

Denture technicians keep abreast of industry

developments

As registered members of the New

Zealand Dental Council, Ryan Carlton

and his fellow technicians at Dentures

Plus in Innes Road are required to

undertake verified training at various

courses every year, to upskill and keep

abreast of new developments in the

industry.

“For example, our technicians Thomas

Gu and Nicole Yee will be attending a

two-day course later this year on the

fitting of first-time dentures,” Ryan says.

In addition, Nicole has recently spent

four weeks in India as part of a course

she is undertaking on maxilo facial work,

which deals with artificial eyes, ears and

noses.

“This is a service we may potentially

offer in the future,” Ryan says.

Ryan himself has recently returned

from the International Dental Show,

which was held in Cologne, Germany.

“It’s the largest trade show in the world

for the industry, with manufacturers

and suppliers from all over the world

showcasing their products. There were

over 2300 stands – it was really eyeopening.”

Ryan says he was particularly interested

in how digital technology is being

incorporated into dentistry, for example

3D printing being used at different stages

of denture manufacture such as the crown

and bridge.

“It’s still in the very early stages, and it

needs more development, but that’s where

it’s heading,” Ryan says.

He believes that in the future, people

that make and fit dentures will be seen

as architects rather than technicians,

with patients being able to download the

pattern for their dentures the architect

has designed on computer, and print

them on a 3D machine.

In the meantime, he emphasises the

importance of keeping dentures clean.

Dentures Plus offers a full range of

products for denture cleaning including

denture cleaners, brushes and denture

baths for soaking the dentures.

Ryan particularly recommends Caldent

denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and

effectively removes stains, calculus and

plaque.

“It works wonders,” he says. “Years of

stains and plaque can be removed with

this product.”

It can be purchased through

the Dentures Plus website, www.

denturesplus.co.nz, for delivery anywhere

in Christchurch and throughout the

country.

Dentures Plus, 396 Innes Road, is

open Monday to Thursday 8am-5pm

and Friday 8am-2pm. To make an

appointment for a consultation on

denture fitting or repair, phone

385 5517.

Dentures Plus also

offers a full range

of products for

denture cleaning.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

New and quality used tyres

for most makes & models

If you need new tyres for your vehicle,

JCM Direct is the place to go.

This family-run, independent tyre

business in Birmingham Drive specialises

in new and quality second-hand tyres.

The business is owned by husband and

wife Athol and Julie Hurst, with Julie being

the one who runs the day-to-day operation

and fits the tyres for customers, which is

unusual in the male-dominated industry,

she says.

They stock a large selection of new tyres

from a wide range of suppliers to suit your

wheelbarrow, car, van, 4wd or trailer.

“There are very few brands we can’t do,”

Julie says.

“We also have an excellent selection of

quality second-hand 4WD tyres.

Other services JCM Direct offers include

puncture repairs, supply and fitting of

new and second-hand alloy wheels, wheel

alignments, replacement factory steel

rims, rim repairs and lights.

“We also specialise in old rims, from the

1930s to the 1970s, which people purchase

for caravans and old trailers. The modern

rims won’t fit those,” Julie says.

“JCM Direct also do a lot of matching

rims and tyres, so customers don’t have to

buy a complete new set if only one needs

replacing.”

We can create packages to accommodate

all budgets, with finance available via Q

Card or Farmers Card.

JCM Direct is now in a new location,

on the corner of Birmingham Drive and

Hands Road. Their former premises were

further along Hands Road.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday

9.30am-5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm.
