Red light runners risk pupil safety

• By Julia Evans

RED LIGHT runners are putting

primary school pupils at risk.

Shirley Primary School, the city

council and the police are acting

quickly after fears for pupils

safety when crossing Shirley Rd.

There is a signalised pedestrian

crossing outside the school but

red light runners have caused

serious concern.

Deputy principal Sandra

Jamieson said it’s only a matter

of time before a pupil is hurt.

“It’s not a matter of if someone

gets injured. It’s when,” she said.

An urgent meeting was held

between school staff, city council

parking enforcement staff and

traffic engineer Penny Gray,

members and staff from the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board, the police and parents

last Wednesday to discuss ways

to improve safety.

Community board chairwoman

Ali Jones said off the back

of the meeting, the group came

away with seven action points.

“The school is not that obvious,

it actually looks like a big

office block . . . if drivers

are aware there are

children in the area they

will slow down,” Ms

Jones said.

Plans likely to be

implemented include

a sign that warns of

children in the area, increased

police presence,

increased city council

enforcement and pupils carrying

flags as they cross the road.

Sandra

Jamieson

Mrs Jamieson said they were

also looking at having a longer

waiting time between the

light changing red and the

crossing turning green.

“It will be a combined

effort. The sign, police

enforcing, city council enforcing

and also someone

suggested the children

holding flags as they cross

the road like they already

do at

St Albans Primary,” Ms Jones

said.

A full safety audit by the city

council, of traffic from Hills Rd

to The Palms Shopping Centre

has also begun. Although ideas

such as a flashing 40km/h signs

outside the school were also

proposed but is unlikely to go

ahead.

But due to traffic congestion

along Shirley Rd after school,

Mrs Jamieson said it wasn’t so

much an issue of speed as red

light running.

Ms Jones said changes would

be in place within four weeks.

Back to the

future for

new school

Haeata Community

College might be only

six-months-old but

it is relying on an old

favourite to motivate

students. Instead of a

buzzer or bell to start

classes, Bob Marley

music plays instead.

HOW TIMES have changed.

Reporter Sarla Donovan reports

today (pages 6-7) on Haeata

Community College six months

after it opened. The school, an

amalgamation of Aranui High

and Aranui, Avondale and

Wainoni primary schools – is full

of innovation and newness.

I remember Aranui High during

my days there as being innovative.

Great teachers who thought outside

of the square and encouraged us to

do the same.

They also encouraged us to

play basketball well, which was a

bonus to the hard graft of getting

through English, history, and

other classes.

Back then we had a buzzer that

alerted us it was time to put the

basketball away and go to class.

The buzzer has now gone and Bob

Marley music plays instead.

My old school mates would

have been very happy with that.

Brighton fridge offers free food

• By Sarla Donovan

FREE FOOD is about to be

given away in New Brighton.

Waimairi Beach’s Trudy

Burrows is behind the project,

which opens on June 27 and

was inspired after she saw

a newspaper article about a

successful trial run in central

Auckland last year.

The free food fridge will offer

food donated by members of the

public, cafes and supermarkets.

It will all be free to those who

need it.

“I just felt it’s the right thing

to do. There’s so much hunger in

the world, it’s hard to think how

one can make a difference, so

you end up doing nothing, and

that’s what I often do. But this

seemed easy. I started step-bystep

and the doors just opened.

The community’s been right

behind it, everyone’s been so

supportive.”

Mrs Burrows said the city

council liked the idea and were

interested in starting one in the

city, but she was determined

that New Brighton was the right

community to do it in.

“For me, it had to be Brighton

first; I guess because I live here,

my passion is here.”

FOOD: Trudy Burrows in the shed which will house a free food

fridge and pantry outside St Faith’s Church, New Brighton,

from June 27.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

The fridge, in the grounds of

St Faith’s Church on Hawke St

will be open 12 hours a day.

People can donate canned or

unopened dry goods or surplus

fresh fruits and vegetables from

their gardens. Local cafes and

supermarkets are encouraged

to bring down excess food at

the end of the day. “Muffins,

quiches, sandwiches things like

that.”

It’s housed in a new cedar-clad

shed that’s just been assembled

by her husband and son who

is a builder. The fridge will be

donated by Skope.

Mrs Burrows is still

fundraising to pay for the cost of

the shed, but said businesses had

donated small things which had

really helped, like bricks, pens

and paper bags.

“Just things you don’t think of

but they all add up.”

She has applied to the Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

for a grant and is also on the

hunt for volunteers to help with

checking stock.

Everyone is welcome to take

what they need from the fridge –

no questions asked.

“Take what you need. Leave

what you don’t.”

•You can support the food

fridge at the open day on

Tuesday, June 27, 1pm, at

St Faith’s Church, cnr Shaw

Ave and Hawke St, New

Brighton.

In Brief

RICCARTON MARKET

WON’T CLOSE

An article on plans for New

Brighton’s future in the Pegasus

Post on May 30 said the Riccarton

market was closing. This was

incorrect. The Riccarton Rotary

Club, which has run the market for

29 years, said it holds a secure lease

over the property at Riccarton

Park Raceway which extends well

into the 2020s and the market will

continue to operate “for years to

come.” We apologise for the error.

MONEY FOR 360 TRAIL

The mayor has recommended

the city council bring forward

$416,160 in capital expenditure to

enable the South Brighton estuary

edge section of the 360 Trail

walking track to be completed.

The trail is about 135km long and

links up many existing tracks and

urban routes. The expenditure is

expected to be met from other projects

and will not impact on rates.

FOOTPATH REPAIRS

Work has begun to reseal one

side of the footpath on Pages Rd

between Anzac Dr and the Pages

Rd bridge. The footpath on the

other side will be patched up. A

permanent fix will be on the cards

when the bridge is rebuilt between

2021 and 2023.

Erosion fear for domain

• By Sarla Donovan

A PROPOSED 190m stopbank

adjacent to Bridge St will reduce

flood levels in South Brighton

but there are questions over

whether it will stop the swift

rate of erosion in South Brighton

Domain.

Adam Perry, who has lived in

the area for 43 years, has written

to the Coastal-Burwood Community

Board about the speed

of deterioration

along the estuary

edge of the

domain.

The earthquakes

caused

significant land

Adam Perry

drop, destroying

much of the existing

gabion basket protection.

Heavy rains in April have sped

up the process, Mr Perry says,

threatening to wash away new

planting.

“The school, campground

and more are at risk from the

next winter storm. Before all the

hours of community planting

gets washed away, can we please

have some action,” he told the

Pegasus Post.

Mr Perry’s concerns are

echoed by community board

member Tim Sintes.

“Water at high tide is getting

into soft sand and eating it

quickly. What I thought would

take six months has happened

in just one. If we don’t do something,

the rate of erosion is going

to keep speeding up.”

In some places, the estuary

edge had receded up to 12m, he

said.

Head of strategic policy at the

city council, Helen Beaumont,

said the repairs to the boardwalk

and jetty in South New Brighton

Park included erosion protection

for those facilities.

“A new, short length of stopbank

is (also) proposed adjacent

to Bridge St to fill a low point

in the existing topography.

The proposed stopbank will be

constructed in the vicinity of the

existing estuary edge footpath.

These works will not alleviate all

flood risk to South New Brighton

area, but it will reduce flood

levels.”

The proposed stopbank is currently

in the design and consenting

stage, she said.

“The city council plans to enact

the works within the next six

months, but this is dependent on

successful application of resource

consent.”

“The bund is approximately

190m long, with a maximum

height of approximately 850mm

(typically between 400mm and

CONCERN:

Domain may

700mm) and a crest width of approximately

1m.”

Mr Perry questioned where the

proposed new stopbank would

start and stop.

“There needs to be protection

all the way along to the jetty.

What’s the plan for the exposed

bit in between? It doesn’t sound

sufficient.”

Tim Sintes said gabion baskets

destroyed in the earthquakes

should be rebuilt.

“I want to see the protection

reinstated as it was. We know it

worked; why not fix it? There’s

examples of baskets that didn’t

slump and they are working

beautifully.”

In Brief

CLOCK REPAIRS

The New Brighton clock tower

will be fully repaired by summer,

with work expected to begin in

spring. A detailed engineering

evaluation has been completed

which notes the structural and

cosmetic repairs required, such

as rust staining, and a full scope

of repair and restoration work is

currently under way.

BOY RECEIVES TRIKE

A Parklands boy has received

funding from the Mazda

Foundation to purchase

a specialised trike. Mikey

Lavender, 11, who has down

syndrome, received $1399 in

funding for the trike, which will

enable him to build strength and

cognitive ability, and allow him

to go bike riding with his family

in nearby Bottle Lake Forest. The

Mazda Foundation is funded

through a contribution from the

sale of every new Mazda in New

Zealand.

DANCER GETS GRANT TO

GO TO NATIONAL SCHOOL

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board has given Parklands ballet

Your Local Views

Brighton’s green future

Treaty educator

and Green Party

candidate for

Christchurch

east, Cathy

Sweet, believes

New Brighton

has all the ingredients

to become a magnet for

ecotourism

The locals know about it and

that’s why we live here . . . the

huge expanses of recreation

reserves, river tracks and great

water sports, the estuary birdlife

and yachting, the beach life,

swimming and surfing.

Ecotourism is the perfect

drawcard to get local and international

visitors coming to our

village and spending at our vital

local businesses. These days most

travellers are looking for something

to do that will revitalise

their interest in life again, that

will show them different views,

culture and perspective, that will

excite or move them. Another

mall won’t give them that lifelong

memory.

East Christchurch can offer the

drawcard of family-friendly and

lower cost activities. Ecotourism

is about entertainment and

• By Sarla Donovan

YOGA, HOT hula, fitness

demonstrations and top-team

are some of the activities on offer

at the annual Aranui Health

Day.

Aranui

neighbourhood nurse

Hannah Laughton is

organising the event,

which she started

planning for in March.

She said she aims

to have a full range of

stalls and interactive

activities for both

parents and children.

“The last couple of years we’ve

focused on well-being, with

crafts like screen printing and

activities that don’t cost a lot

of natural resources to build,

and don’t involve fossil fuels

and pollution to maintain. This

includes the beautiful murals on

New Brighton shop walls and

Peter Donnelly’s internationally

known sand art.

And now the east has the big,

new opportunity we have been

waiting for: A river park from

city to beach. Without having to

leave town, locals and travellers

will be able to get into the great

outdoors to gain all the physical

and mental health benefits from

walking, cycling and boating

in amongst native forest and

birdlife. The east Christchurch

waterpark concept would be a

further stunning attraction.

Eco-design is the very latest

lantern-making. And this year,

we’re introducing reiki and hand

massage just to mix it up,” she

said.

About 35 stallholders are

expected at this year’s event and

each one will bring a

small gift to contribute to

the spot prizes awarded

during the day.

“The prizes are mixed

up and this allows their

organisations brand

to be out there in the

public in another way

and hopefully gain more

exposure/clients as a

result. So it is win-win,”

said Ms Laughton.

More than 500 people attended

last year’s event.

trend, so how do we make sure

there is enough ‘eco’ in our

ecotourism that designers and

mayors around the world are

talking about us? Here we go

. . . wind and solar powered

amenities. The latest composting

restroom facilities. Food containers

that are made from renewable

and compostable materials. Cycling

options everywhere. Green

cabs and buses. Organic snacks,

and other quality local food and

drink.

And, of course, local hapu

knowledge, both old and new,

incorporated every step of the

way as our country is in the very

fortunate position of having iwirun

corporations which ensure

that there is always regard for

future generations.

Look after yourself at the annual Aranui Health Day

Hannah

Laughton

ECOTOUR: Green Party candidate Cathy Sweet says

ecotourism is about entertainment and activities that don’t use

a lot of natural resources, like these murals in New Brighton

mall.

And, with the mix of

demonstrations, information

and interactive activities, there

will something for everyone, she

said.

“Even if they come for a

few minutes. The majority of

feedback has always been really

positive.”

event.

We said:

Panels erected to

War Memorial have been

You said:

Linda Street – A

heinous, appalling, shaming

abomination. I actually prefer

the graffiti. If I wanted to put

flowers there today in memory

of the soldiers who died in the

Battle of Messines, I would have

to place them in front of that

plastic box. Horrible.

Laurence Fairley – I had

a meeting with David East, city

councillor, two years ago about

the disgraceful appearance of

this memorial. The discussion

was about techniques to

remove graffiti from sandstone

correctly. The discussion talked

about video surveillance and

ownership. Never in my wildest

dreams did the wall come up.

Talk about Berlin, Israel and the

Mexican wall. Now Brighton

has its own. The wall needs

to be removed immediately.

The memorial stands for far

more than this. This wall

sends the wrong message to

the community and serves as

a challenge to the protagonist

vandals who think smearing

this marker with their ‘sign’ is

okay. What was that chant back

Raising eyebrows with a new way

Reporter Sarla

Donovan visits Aranui’s

community school

six months after it

opened

HAEATA. IT means “dawn.”

The first appearance of light. New

beginnings.

The opening of Haeata Community

College six months ago

signposted a new era for schooling

in the east. It’s a poster child

for big-box classrooms, catering

for up to 200 kids in one space.

The year 1-13 school replaced

Aranui High, Aranui

Primary, Avondale Primary and

Wainoni School after earthquake-damaged

land and buildings

and falling rolls prompted

their closure.

Bordering Shortland St and

Breezes Rd, the size and newness

of the buildings is striking.

It looks like a large-scale primary

school, with its sun shades,

adventure playground and

brightly coloured exterior panels.

In the centre of the campus

is a massive building housing

the gymnasium, library, offices,

cafeteria, kitchens and studios for

music and drama.

A glass-fronted atrium is at its

heart, the school office tucked

along one wall, in keeping with

the open-plan vibe. It feels like a

cross between a hotel lobby and a

community hub.

Opposite the office, a cafeteria

displays the blackboard specials:

today it’s creamy vege soup,

nachos with melted cheese and

a salad with bacon, haloumi and

green beans. Mouse traps, wedges,

pies and fruit salads feature

in the cabinet. There’s only water

and plain milk in the fridge and

no processed food on offer.

Kids sit at cafeteria tables

wearing an assortment of clothing;

hoodies and sneakers are

popular. There is a uniform but

the rules seem pretty flexible.

Lavalava’s are everywhere the day

I visit, all the teachers are wearing

them and lots of students too.

BUSY: Haeata Community College principal Andy Kai Fong has responsibility for over 900

students from ages 5 to 18.

PHOTOS: MARTIN HUNTER

I find out later it’s because of Samoan

Language Week. There are

128 Samoans students at Haeata,

making up the majority of its

Pacific Island population.

Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds

blasts out of the sound system at

9am. Children dash through the

atrium, thread around cafeteria

tables and tumble out the big

glass doors, on their way to class.

Principal Andy Kai Fong is

determined to meet the 21stcentury

head on and he’s at the

helm of a school that looks and

functions differently to a traditional

model.

Primary, intermediate and

secondary-aged children sharing

the same campus. Teachers

operating in shared, open plan

spaces rather than individual

classrooms. A strong emphasis

on self-management and studentdirected

learning. Laptops and

phones instead of pens. Ninety

minute periods.

There’s a lot that’s new about

Haeata, and Mr Kai Fong freely

admits their approach has raised

a few eyebrows and may have

lost them some students in the

months since opening.

He’s okay with that, and accepts

there’s a possibility the roll

could go down next year.

They’re trying to take a more

holistic approach to learning, he

says, and it will take time to educate

the community about what

the school is trying to achieve.

In spite of that, the roll of 950

is healthy. They opened with

50 per cent more students than

anticipated and are catering for

kids who have come from 122

different schools.

That figure reflects the transience

in the area, as well as the

school’s distinct character, which

he says has attracted families

from outside the local catchment.

Their philosophy has something

in common with Ao Tawhiti Unlimited

Discovery, which also uses

a model of personalised, studentdriven

learning, though he points

out most students at that school

attend by choice, not because it’s

their local provider.

Ultimately, the aspiration is to

become a viable alternative for

everyone in the catchment. Historically,

only 40 per cent of local

kids in the Aranui/Wainoni area

attended their local school.

“We’re trying to bring people

home and offer education that’s

purposeful, but it’s challenging

for our community to get

their heads around. We have

copped criticism for the level

of self-management (we expect

from students). For seniors particularly,

it takes time to embed

– we’ve flipped expectations on

their head. Whatever your plan,

there’s challenges.”

Interestingly, Mr Kai Fong

didn’t have any input into the

buildings, but says it’s an amazing

place to work and the big-box

style has never impacted strongly

on what they want to do for

learning.

“We utilise the buildings and

furniture for what we need. We

can have up to 200 students or

just two in these flexible spaces.”

LEARNING: Pupils focused at Haeata Community College.

A whirlwind tour through the

school’s three open-plan learning

spaces throws up a busy and noisy

primary school, where separate

clusters of children are working

with teachers. No dividers

punctuate the room, apart from a

half-wall which separates a group

of high-needs pupils.

A soft hush descends when we

enter the senior school. Students

are scattered around the central

learning area, at tables or on

the floor, intent on computers

or phones. Jack’s on his laptop,

writing a story for an animated

computer game. The boy next

to him is surfing Youtube; his

self-directed learning has taken a

detour. Phoenix is doing algebra

– she’s planning to join the navy.

While there’s not many posters

or student work on display, that’s

maybe a reflection of how new

this all is. In a small classroom

off the main area, the familiar

sight of a maths class in progress:

teacher, whiteboard and four

students. Small group teaching

seems to be the thing here.

Mr Kai Fong says as technology

evolves, schools need to stay

relevant and engaging to young

people. It’s a balancing act.

As I go to leave, a little group of

kids comes trotting past behind

their teacher who’s carrying a

yellow cricket bat, wickets and a

ball. They’re heading for the gym.

She looks young, energetic, and

committed.

Perhaps it’s that, more than

buildings or philosophy, which

will determine whether Haeata

becomes the school of choice for

its community.

NURSE MAUDE

Loving home guaranteed

The Nurse Maude Hospice Shops are a

well-known feature in Christchurch since

the first hospice shop opened in Merivale

nine years ago.

Not quite so well-known, however, is

Maudes on Trade Me.

While the Hospice Shops sell clothing

Maudes on Trade Me sells everything from

antiques to sporting and household items.

“If it’s still in good condition but you

no longer want it, have room for it or will

never use it again you can raise money for

the Nurse Maude Hospice by donating it

to us,” says Sue Bramwell, general manager

marketing at Nurse Maude.

While smaller pieces can be left for Maudes

on Trade Me at any of the Nurse Maude

Hospice Shops it is sometimes possible for

larger or bulk items to be picked up.

“Just give us a call on 375 4643 or email

us at trademe.volunteers@nursemaude.org.

nz first if you have large items and we can let

you know where in Merivale to drop them

off or whether we’re able to pick them up”

says Bramwell.

“Unfortunately we can’t take beds,

mattresses or televisions, but we can take

almost everything else in good condition.”

“Maudes on Trade Me helps make it

possible for patients and their families to

receive care and support free of charge at the

Nurse Maude Hospice so they can focus on

what matters rather than having to worry

about how they’re going to pay for that care.”

Supermarket and council

create new playground

A collaboration between a

local Wainoni business and

the city council has seen

an old playground opened

with a new lease of life.

Shortland playground in

Wainoni faced an uncertain

future when the new Wainoni

Pak’n Save was rebuilt

on its door step.

But a joint effort from the

city council and Pak’n Save

saw a revamped playground

opened to the public with

a public planting day at the

weekend.

City council

head of parks

Andrew

Rutledge (left)

said Pak’n

Save had

approached

the city council in April last

year with an idea to keep

the playground open.

Improvements included

removing the existing

boundary fence with Pak’n

Save, removing plants

that were blocking sight

lines, tidying up existing

garden beds and planting

around 300 new plants, a

play surface and new paved

surfaces.

PLAYTIME: Lucas Taylor, 3, has some rides at the

revamped Shortland playground. ​

“It’s great to see the community

and local businesses

getting involved with the

city council in the provision

of parks and playgrounds,”

PEGASUS POST

said Mr Rutledge.

“The $50,000 contribution

from Pak’n Save has

kept the playground open

for community use. Their

funding has allowed for the

relocation of some equipment

and the removal of

some plants to improve

sightlines into the park

which makes the park safer

for the community. They

have designed their staffrooms

so they look out over

the park which also assists

with passive surveillance of

the space.”

Greetings to our

Community.

As this page

shows, the life

of a secondary

school is busy and

varied. Linwood

College nurtures personal excellence by

providing diverse opportunities to meet

individual needs, opportunities that support

a personalised learning pathway.

This pathway is now opening out to our

partner schools. Linwood College is

running a cycle of eight-week enrichment

programmes for Year 6-8 learners in the

May Music Month

schools in our communities, Linwood-

Woolston and the Bays. The programme is

very well regarded by the young learners

themselves and their schools. Debating was

the first topic which culminated in a lively

debate held at Sumner School. The present

programme is Mathematics and is proving

equally valued.

Many people are keen to learn more

about Linwood College. To this end, I am

holding regular evening appointments for

families keen to know more and to meet me

personally. Please phone the school office,

phone 9820100, to book in a time.

Nga mihi nui to our community as the

positive activity of the year continues. I am

always keen to meet people if any member

of the community wishes to talk to me about

anything. My door is open.

Samoan Speech Competition Success

To start winter off with a bang on 1st June,

students from Linwood College pitted

themselves against other talented Samoan

speakers from Christchurch schools, as part

of the annual Samoan Speech Competition.

Held at Hillmorton High School, the event

was opened by Leumu Gali, St Thomas of

Canterbury College's Samoan Language

teacher. This year’s topic was: 'Maau i ofaga,

Maua'a lou faasinomaga' ('Keep your identity

alive to thrive').

With more than 100 students competing,

Linwood College's Gloria Sua won first place

in the Year 11 section with Tala Leupolu

(Year 12) achieving third place. Two Year 13s

achieved placings wtih Vai Mariner getting

second place and Janet Tuiloma, third.

It was Janice Tuiloma’s first competition.

She and her twin Janet signed up so that

they could make their families proud.

Another participant, Havana described how

she and others shook with nerves as they

prepared to present their speeches.

The Nationals which will take place in

August 2017 here in Christchurch.

Samoan Language Week Celebrated

To celebrate Samoan Language

Week, in the first week of June

students at Linwood College

arranged a number of activities,

including a lunch for staff.

Students also performed a

number of dances, engaging staff

in a traditional dance.

Chess Tournament Winners

A crowd of Eastgate Library visitors

settled in for double treat – tasty delicacies

provided by the library staff accompanied

by a peppering of performances by

Linwood College students as part of the

recent ‘May Music Month’.

A funky, hip-hop number by Filipino

students and a Bollywood dance followed

the Year 7 students’ drama which kicked off

the evening. The school band performed

many melodious pieces.

Surrounded by vibrant colours and sound,

the audience clapped along to the smooth

reggae tones of Tyrone TePoono as he

crooned Six60’s Don’t Forget Your Roots.

Adonai Schwenke’s thunderous tones

reverberated Tennesse Whiskey’s lyrics

throughout Eastgate to a cheering crowd.

With a dabble of jazz, a smoky solo by Piper

Stewart, a splash of drumming by Luke

Barry, one Samoan dance later - onlookers

were bursting full from the smorgasbord of

the evening’s cultural flavours.

Organisers stated that the event had been

inspired by Linwood College's ‘Festival of

Nations’ held back in March and hope that

this enchanting evening may become an

annual event to showcase local talent.

Students from Year 7 and 8 performing at Eastgate

Library during May Music Month

As the nine o’clock bell tolled, the Linwood

College hall was abuzz with the humming

of table-top timers as students of all ages

from across Christchurch competed. This

gathering was for the annual Chess Power

Interschools Tournament, held on the 22

May.

Seven Linwood College students vied

against students from nine local schools,

achieving twenty-three wins in total. As a

result Linwood College secured first place

in the tournament.

Senior students Marvin Brimon, Joshua

Galang and Ly Jefferson Brimon as well as

Ivo Craeig Baguingey (Year 8) achieved the

four top placings throughout the day.

Marvin Brimon came out on top, winning

six matches and has been invited to

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Headaches,

facial and jaw pain

Physical Sense Gym & Physio, located in Colombo Street Sydenham,

focuses both on helping people stay physically fit and healthy, and

helping people to overcome various health problems.

At the adjoining physio

clinic, the four qualified

physiotherapists specialise

in dealing with chronic pain,

such as headaches, earache, toothache,

and facial and jaw pain.

As physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk

explains, when our muscles tighten

this can refer pain to many of the areas

around the face and head. Dehydration

can be the catalyst for tightening the neck

muscle (SCM), which causes pain in the

ear, forehead and around the eye and jaw

joint areas. Tightening of the temporalis

muscle can refer pain to the teeth, which

can be confusing when the person

visits the dentist to have it checked and

the dentist can’t find a reason for the

recurring pain.

Teeth grinding at night and teeth

clenching during the day, are also a major

cause of muscle tightening.

Physiotherapy treatment for these

problems, is based on deactivating

the ‘trigger points’ through handson

massage therapy, to relax the

muscles, which is the least invasive

and a very effective form of treatment.

Dry needling is another technique used

for muscle relaxation, but is only used with

the client’s consent, Ietje says.

“We release the muscles to give

immediate relief and at the same time

work on the cause. For example, we have

a feedback headband that is worn at night

to help people to learn not to clench their

teeth while they’re asleep. We also work

on the client’s cervical or neck part of the

spine, where overuse can cause muscles

to tighten, creating pain.”

Teaching self-management of stress

is an important aspect of the clinic’s

treatment, as well as teaching breathing

techniques, which go hand in hand with

managing stress.

The gym is open to the public for

regular specialised classes for people with

ailments such as diabetes, osteoporosis,

vascular problems, and those who face

difficulties following a stroke.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

as well as being available on Saturdays,

allowing us to work around even the busiest

we provide or the manner in which strive to

achieve both of those goals.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Natural product

improves joint health

For many of us, as we grow older our

joints start to become stiff, sore and swollen,

reducing mobility and quality of life.

Most of these joint problems are caused

by a lack of cartilage or damage to the

cartilage, which is the soft, spongy material

between the moving bones. The body

continually produces cartilage, but factors

like digestive and health issues, and not

enough of the right nutrients in the diet,

slow its production. If the cartilage wears

away more quickly than it is replaced,

the bone ends can start rubbing together,

causing reduced joint movement, pain,

swelling and inflammation of the joint.

Generally, the joints with the most use or

stress show problems first, but eventually

other joints may show problems too.

Luckily, certain nutrients are known to

support and stimulate cartilage production.

Pure Vitality is a small West Coast

company, where they are committed to

producing effective, natural, life-changing

health supplements. While most joint care

products on the market are very similar,

Pure Vitality wants their products to be

the most effective. Their new Joint Vitality

product contains scientifically researched,

high-potency natural ingredients to

provide a multipronged approach to joint

health.

As well as a full therapeutic dose of

the more common glucosamine and

chondroitin, Joint Vitality contains a

concentrated deer antler velvet extract to

help stimulate healing. Another unique

ingredient is joint fluid or mega-potent

hyaluronic acid. This has been shown in

clinical trials to be more effective than

glucosamine and chondroitin.

Joint Vitality also contains enhanced

absorption turmeric extract, as well as

the highest- potency extract of boswellia

available to reduce inflammation, swelling

and pain, and speed joint recovery.

The formula also provides antioxidants

from grape seed extract to support cellular

joint health, and vitamin D3, zinc, boron,

manganese, copper and selenium, all

critical to optimum joint health.

This comprehensive formula is designed

to provide fast, lasting results. It is

recommended to take three capsules daily

with food for the first box or two to obtain

the maximum benefits. One box of 60

capsules is $49.90.

The importance of good blood pressure!

According to a country Doctor “D.C.

Jarvis” from Vermont in the USA cider

vinegar and honey (CV & H) can be an

important part of a long healthy life. Dr.

Jarvis noted Vermonters who regularly

consumed cider vinegar and honey had

excellent health with many putting in a

vigorous day’s work on the farm even when

well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar

and honey on arthritis can be remarkable

with many patients reporting almost total

relief after taking a course of the cider

vinegar and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar

counteracted calcium deposits and helped

the body control calcium use.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It

also promotes digestion, assimilation of

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but

also validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required. Visit our website at

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

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.

Jo Hayes

National List MP based in

Christchurch East

Bill English

Right Honourable Prime

Minister of New Zealand

www.national.org.nz

Authorised by Jo Hayes, National MP,

Unit 6/975 Ferry Road, Ferrymead


www.national.org.nz

All in a day’s work

It’s the things we do every day that total the sum of our lives,

so I was thinking recently, how do we spend our time as MPs

to really make a difference?

While we sit in Parliament and make and debate laws – and

that’s important - it’s often the little things we do that really

matter in people’s lives.

That’s what I’m proud of when I think about my role as a list

MP in Christchurch East. My staff and I always have the door

open to chat and offer a helping hand. Here are a just a few

things that we’ve been up to over the past few years:

Immigration

Immigration is a tough and emotive issue, especially for those trying to stay in

New Zealand. These decisions often involve keeping families together, keeping

businesses running and sticky situations all around.

We’ve had plenty of immigration cases come through my office and have always

done our best to support Christchurch East residents and businesses for the best

outcomes. Although we can’t comment on specific cases, we’ve had very positive

outcomes in the majority of them, including emergency visas.

Getting the right mix

At the same time, the Government regularly reviews immigration settings to make

sure that we’re getting the right mix of skills and the right quantity of people. We

want to make sure that Kiwi businesses have room to grow but that the interests

of everyday Kiwis are put first too.

The Government recently raised the first remuneration threshold to $48,859

a year: applicants who earn below that threshold will have no pathway to

residence. The second threshold will be set at $73,299 and applicants will

automatically be considered as high-skilled.

We’re also proposing changes to work visas to limit the duration and settlement

expectations of lower paid visa holders. That said, we’re also proposing a new

pathway to residence for 4000 long-term temporary migrant workers in the

South Island – many of whom have played a key role in the Canterbury rebuild.

Something smells here...

Waimairi Beach residents got whiff of a Christchurch City Council (CCC) plan to

move the dump site closer to their homes. They were understandably unhappy

and approached my office to see if we could help them out of the quagmire.

I looked over the plan and met with Minister Brownlee, and we asked that the

plan be overturned. It was, and residents and CCC agreed on an alternative site

where the offending odours wouldn’t intrude. Another win for locals!

Open those roads!

Some of you may remember last Christmas when Pages Road

was closed Eastbound for months on end, and scheduled to

open again on Christmas Eve.

That wasn’t soon enough for New Brighton businesses in the

Christmas shopping season, especially after two hard trading

years with road closures. We had a chat with CCC and SCIRT,

which came to the party and worked around the clock to get

the road open two-weeks before Christmas Day.

My first Bill – a win

for youth!

It was a huge honour to have my first

Bill – to amend the Marriage Act –

read in Parliament earlier this month.

The Marriage (Court Consent to

Marriage of Minors) Amendment

Bill seeks to protect 16 and 17-yearold

minors from forced or arranged

marriages by necessitating court

consent to the marriage.

Currently, 16 and 17-year-olds who wish

to marry need only parental consent.

This amendment will ensure that all

minors over the age of 16 who wish to marry do so with the acceptance of the

court and with equal consent from both parties.

It’s so important that we protect our young people’s rights and freedom to make

their own life decisions and not to be forced into an unwanted union.

The Bill will now head to Select Committee where it will be open to discussion

and public submissions.

In a snapshot:

We were contacted about an elderly woman in urgent need of

re-housing. We successfully found her a home and helped source

furniture as well.

School bullying

Teachers and parents at a local Christchurch East school

approached us about ongoing bullying problems. I met with the

principal and we’re monitoring the issue together.

Burwood-Pegasus Community Watch

I head out on watch duty on a Friday night whenever I can with

one of the committed Watch members.

Government support

for the East

Sometimes it’s not until we look back that we realise how

far we’ve come with the rebuild in Christchurch East. Beyond

the residential, we can all pat ourselves on the back for the

following:

Education

The Government has invested in three new

primary schools: $10.2m for Marshlands;

$14.5m for Waitakiri and $13.6 for Rawhiti.

Of course, we’ve also got the fabulous new

Haeta at $298m.

But wait, there’s more: a further $650m is

tagged for the upcoming relocation and

rebuild of Avonside Girls and Shirley Boys at

QE2 park; the rebuild of a Catholic primary

school in Aranui, and Banks Ave in Shirley.

Hospitals

The new Burwood Hospital, at $215m, is truly a state-of-the-art facility and a

fantastic asset for the East.

Social housing

The Government has poured a massive

investment into social housing from Aranui

to Shirley, and continues to actively build

as part of its social housing programme.

These new, warm and healthy homes

are benefiting plenty of Christchurch

East families and sprucing up the

neighbourhood!

The Force is with you, Christchurch East

The National-led Government is investing $503 million to provide new staff and

police services across New Zealand. That means a total of 1125 new police staff –

including 880 frontline officers – over the next four years. The Canterbury Police

District, including Christchurch East, will get an additional 10 boys (and girls!) in

blue over the next year to focus on child protection, adult sexual assault and

serious crime in our community. And that’s just the beginning.

The additional staff will boost police force capacity and help achieve better

outcomes for all. The first recruits will be on the beat in July.

New Brighton redevelopment

It may seem like there’s not a lot happening on the ground in New Brighton yet,

but there’s plenty of work going on

behind the scenes.

I have frequently voiced my support

for the new hot water salt pools

and redevelopment, and I’m

actively working with the Business

Association of New Brighton to

identify potential investors in the

area’s future. New Brighton has such a vibrant and steadfast community and it’s

going to take all of us – Government, CCC and community - to create the future

that we want for the area. As a side-note, it was an absolute pleasure to host

New Brighton artists at Parliament last year!

Business

Let’s not forget that the Government also funded some Christchurch East

businesses immediately after the earthquakes so that they could retain staff and

run their businesses. The business owners I know are hugely appreciative of the

investment, which has allowed them to continue thriving and operating out of the

electorate.

Budget a

big win for

Christchurch

East families

The Government’s budget on 25 May is great news for Christchurch East

families. Here are a few highlights in case you missed it:




A $2 billion a year Family Incomes Package that will help hard working

New Zealanders get ahead. The package will lift the incomes of 1.3 million

families by an average of $26 a week.

$4 billion to help build the public infrastructure we need as a growing

economy, as well as additional funding to strengthen the Business

Growth Agenda to help drive further economic growth, create jobs, and

lift wages.

$7 billion new investment in public services like health, education, and

law and order over the next four years, including $321 million in social

investment initiatives to help the most at-risk New Zealanders become

more independent.

This is an exciting budget that puts more money into the back pockets of

those who need it most - low and middle-income earners with young families

and higher housing costs.

By getting the economy growing again and putting the Government’s books

back in order we’ve given ourselves choices that few other countries have. We

can fund new initiatives that will make a difference to people’s lives. Some of

those include:





Joanne Hayes and Finance Minister Steven Joyce.

An additional $224 million over four years for mental health services.

$37 million to improve the safety of family violence victims and stop family

violence escalating.

$185 million to further expand social housing services.

$424 million for the new Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki.
