unhappy

over gym

school

consultation

A pleasant evening

Pleasant Point Yacht Club life member Bob Scott, 97, got his

hands on the America’s Cup with Team New Zealand crewman

Joe Sullivan during an event on Saturday night to raise money

for the club’s rebuild. •Story, pg 3

• By Sophie Cornish

RESIDENTS LIVING near QE II

Park are unhappy with the public

consultation over the approved

new lease for the Christchurch

School of Gymnastics.

Thirteen people signed a letter

sent to the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board saying residents’

views were not given due

consideration.

The community board made

a recommendation to the city

council to approve the proposed

lease for the new site on the Ascot

Ave side of QE II Park on September

18. The city council granted

the lease on September 28.

A comment from the community

board in a report to the

city council acknowledged that a

leaflet informing residents of the

final decision of where the school

would be rebuilt should have

been sent out earlier.

Before the community board’s

recommendation, the city council

delivered leaflets to properties

on surrounding streets about the

proposed lease. It offered residents

the opportunity to submit

feedback.

But residents say the map on

the leaflet caused confusion over

where the site would be because it

wasn’t clear enough.

Coastal-Burwood Ward councillor

David East agreed there

were “some anomalies” with the

map which may have been interpreted

in different ways.

He suggested at an onsite meeting

there needed to be a more

widespread leaflet drop to clear

up confusion and give more residents

an opportunity to submit

their feedback.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

IT WAS a great night at the

Pleasant Point Yacht Club on

Saturday as fundraising continues

to build new clubrooms (see page

3).

And it was a special moment for

97-year-old Bob Scott, who has

been a member at the club since

1936.

Bob met some of the winning

Team New Zealand crew who

turned up for the fundraiser and

I’m sure that most have been a

terrific moment.

The club has done a fantastic

job getting Team NZ on board

so congratulations for all those

behind it.

Between $20-25,000 was raised

(final total still to be counted).

Residents near the eastern side

of QE II aren’t overly happy about

the relocation of the school of

gymnastics and are angry over

the way they have been consulted

(see page 1).

Team NZ boosts rebuild fund

• By Sophie Cornish

ABOUT $25,000 was raised for

the rebuild of Pleasant Point

Yacht Club on Saturday night.

The event called An Evening

with Emirates Team New Zealand

ran smoothly, said Pleasant

Point Yacht Club spokesman

Nigel Humphreys. The club rebuild

is planned for South New

Brighton Park.

Life member of the club, Bob

Scott, 97, was given to a lot of

attention by Team New Zealand

member Joe Sullivan. The formerly

“very competitive” yachtie

joined the club in 1936 and is the

oldest living member.

He was club commodore in

the 1950s and club captain for

many years.

Mr Scott’s daughter, Carol

Scott, said they had a fantastic

evening and her father particularly

enjoyed the team’s presentation

which included footage on

the water.

Ms Scott said Mr Sullivan

made a fuss of her father. The

two men have mutual friends

including New Zealand sailor

and broadcaster Peter Lester’s

father, who Mr Scott went to

school with.

Mr Sullivan organised members

of the Team New Zealand

PRESENTATION: Pleasant Point Yacht Club commodore

Alastair Burgess addressing the audience of more than 400

to sign a plaque commemorating

Canterbury’s only challenge

in the Little America’s Cup

challenge in the 1974, which

Mr Scott brought along on the

night. The Little Americas Cup,

now known as the International

Catamaran Challenge Trophy,

is a race between C class catamarans.

More than 400 people attended

on Saturday night. A

pre-event gathering took place at

6pm with VIP guests and sponsors

given the opportunity to

meet Team New Zealand members

before the main event began

at 7pm. Guests were treated to a

presentation on the big screen by

Team New Zealand members.

The presentation showed the

team’s background, philosophy,

future goals and other specifics

like how they stay focussed and

deal with challenging events.

Several prizes were auctioned

including a helicopter ride to a

mystery destination piloted by

Richie McCaw, a horsepower

experience in a dual sulky

behind Monkey King, New

Zealand’s top-earning harness

racer, a hot lap around Mike

Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna,

and a signed framed Emirates

Team New Zealand shirt.

Proceeds from the auction

totalled more than $17,000. The

vintage 1995 Team New Zealand

shirt is still up for auction on

Galabid until the end of the

month.

A wide range of people

attending the event including

die-hard yacties, members of the

public and a lot of families, said

Mr Humphreys.

Team New Zealand members

took the opportunity to get

to know those who attended,

coming down on to the floor

and mingling with guests and

getting photos with them and

the cup.

Team members who attended

include Joseph Sullivan, Richard

Meacham, Sean Regan, Chris

Salthouse, Nick Hutchins,

Hamish Hooper, Harry Lynsky,

Norman Newton (cup security)

and Aaron Young (Royal New

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A VET

NURSE AT McMASTER & HEAP

Its early morning and the HOSPITAL nurse is

already hard at work, caring for her sometimes

numerous & varied hospital patients who have

stayed the night.

She cuddles & chats away to them

reassuringly as if they were her own!

Some soiled patients are sponge bathed,

while other patients are syringe fed. She checks,

untwists and flushes IV catheters, administers

morning medications, fresh food & clean

bedding is lovingly placed! All observations are

recorded ready for the “Vet rounds”, just as in a

hospital!

The Vets at McMaster & Heap rely heavily on

the expertise and thoroughness of our nurses

to inform us with regards to the patients in

her care. The vets check over their patients,

authorize blood tests or radiographs, change

medication or nutrition plans and update the

owners.

Then its back to the hospital nurse to care

for the needs of these patients over the course

of the day, updating the vet, speaking to the

family members involved and organizing

visiting times. Excellent time management skills

are required to triage the sick arrivals through

the day and care for the already sick and injured.

Note taking and recording of medications given

is of utmost importance.

Meanwhile the doors have opened & the

RECEPTION nurse is cheerfully assisting the

receptionist, greeting a continuous stream

of pets and their owners arriving for today’s

appointments & procedures!

She expertly multi tasks while answering the

relentlessly ringing phones-today she will take

a huge number of calls with a wide variety of

questions. She must use her problem solving

skills to know when it is OK for a patient to

come in later in the day, or if in fact it may

require a much more urgent consult time.

The SURGICAL nurse gets ready for her

busy day ahead. Patients start arriving at 8am

for admittance and some days we have 4

vets operating and a list of over 15 surgical

procedures to work through. Every nurse has a

vet assigned to them to allow continuity of care.

She will talk kindly & soothingly to each

patient while efficiently placing IV catheters

& obtain blood and urine samples to run

diagnostic tests for the vet. She then calculates

and administers her patients pre anaesthetic

medications as instructed.

Anaesthetic machines must then be checked

& the surgical room fully equipped for the

variety of today’s procedures!

Once everything is ready, she will assist the

vet in the patients induction and intubation,

before swiftly attaching all monitoring

equipment, as well as manual checks. Once

happy the patient is stable, she sterile preps the

patients surgical site. She closely monitors the

patient through the entire procedure, alerting

the vet to any subtle changes in the patients

anaesthetic depth, blood pressure and more.

She carefully moves the patient over to a

cosy recovery bed, where the hospital nurse is

waiting to continue the post operative care.

Evening consults are arriving & reception is a

hype of activity. Phones are ringing constantly

& owners are arriving to pick up their animals

from surgery & hospital.

The reception nurse expertly talks to owners

experiencing a wide range of emotions, from

extreme sadness, stress, anxiety, to those who

are excited or just plain relieved to be able to

see their furry friend once more. She goes over

the large variety of discharge information that

the vets & nurses have carefully put aside for

their patients.

The hospital nurse kindly talks to worried

owners who are visiting their pets and updates

them on the vets plan for overnight care.

She carries out her final rounds and ensures

everyone gets a cuddle goodnight!

She assists the vet in preparing any extremely

unwell patients that require transfer to the after

hours clinic.

At 7pm the last consult has finished, and

the doors are closed! The nurses may still

be buzzing around for another hour or so,

depending on today’s work load. Although

sometimes they are totally exhausted (&

covered in various unidentified stains & smells!)

they go home to their own pets with a big

smile on their face. They know each day they

assist the vets in making a huge difference to

animals lives by putting 100% of time, love, care

& knowledge to ensure each furry patient and

it’s owner has had the best veterinary service

and care possible!!

Jo Manson-King – I

believe it should benefit by

lovely to sell cars in a low

but give back to what? The

kids/youth of the area have

nothing, so maybe a roller

be used by many groups,

an inflatable/jump world,

something that brings hope

everyone.

at least something positive

Helping kids get creative

What

makes the

Imagination

Station so

popular?

Managing

director Sam

Butcher

explains

Lego Education. Who would

have thought the world’s biggest

toy company would also become

one of the biggest educational

equipment providers in the

world?

The concept of educational toys

has become commonplace in

discussion among many parents.

As a society, we want to

ensure our children have

every opportunity to grow,

explore the world, and come

to know that learning can in

fact be a thrilling and enjoyable

experience.

Lego toys are tactile, creative,

and come in a bright rage of

colours, sizes, and shapes. The

pure diversity and simplicity

of Lego building bricks makes

them engaging for even the most

disruptive of children, building

their co-ordination and problemsolving

skills.

But Lego Education goes

further than just plastic bricks –

it now includes programmable

robots, solar-powered motors

and all kinds of great learning

equipment. Imagination Station

is Christchurch’s biggest provider

of Lego-based education classes.

Since opening in January 2015,

Imagination Station has bought

almost a tonne of Lego and

Duplo bricks into Christchurch

for people to play with – all in

the name of creative play and

education. Imagination Station

encourages people of all ages

to be creative, and provides a

diverse range of holiday activities

and after school programmes to

engage children.

With a new additional centre

open in New Brighton’s Carnaby

Lane until Christmas, it’s a great

opportunity to get kids building

and dreaming of models much

bigger than they’d be able to

make at home.

Until Christmas, Imagination

Station New Brighton is open

Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and

Mondays each week – plus every

day over the school holidays.

All are welcome to come on

down and get creative.

Unstoppable: My Life So Far

By Maria Sharapova

In the middle of the night, a father and his daughter step off a

Greyhound bus in Florida and head straight to the Nick Bollettieri

Tennis Academy. They ring the bell, though no one is expecting

them and they don’t speak English. They have arrived from

Russia with just seven hundred dollars and the conviction that

this six-year-old girl will be the world’s next great tennis star.

They are right.

This is Maria Sharapova’s gripping and fearless autobiography,

telling her story from her roots in the small Siberian town her

parents fled to after the Chernobyl disaster, through her arrival

in the US with nothing and her phenomenal rise to success -

winning Wimbledon aged just seventeen - to the disasters that

threatened her career and her fight back. Told with the same

combative, no-holds-barred attitude as her game, it’s a story of

crazy luck, mistakes, rivalries, sacrifice, survival and, above all,

the constant, unwavering determination to win.

predictions have made him a controversial figure around the world.

This evening is to be no exception- he claims he will reveal an astonishing

scientific breakthrough to challenge the fundamentals of human existence.

But Langdon and several hundred other guests are left reeling when the

meticulously orchestrated evening is blown apart before Kirsch’s precious

discovery can be revealed. In order to evade a tormented enemy who is

one step ahead of them at every turn, Langdon and Vidal must navigate

labyrinthine passageways of hidden history and ancient religion. On a

trail marked only by enigmatic symbols and elusive modern art, Langdon

and Vidal uncover the clues that will bring them face-to-face with a worldshaking

truth that has remained buried - until now.

Chocolate wheel returns

for final spin in museum

THE NEW Brighton Museum’s

chocolate wheel is coming out of

retirement for just one day.

The chocolate wheel was a

popular activity in the 1970s. It

would be spun on the corner of

Oram Ave and Seaview Rd on

Saturdays.

At the time, New Brighton had

a monopoly on Saturday trading

and a regular team of men from

the Pier and Foreshore Society

would spin the wheel to fundraise.

Prizes included frozen chickens

and chocolates. The museum

plans to resurrect the wheel for its

garage sale on Sunday.

In 1977, the funds raised from

spinning the wheel were used

to upgrade Thomson Park. A

flying fox and other playground

equipment was purchased, along

Residents then queried a

number of different sites for

the rebuild and the community

board asked city council to

consider the sites.

The city council assessed several

different sites. However, it

determined there was only one

viable option, the site which had

been indicated on the original

leaflets.

It was then determined by

city council staff that a further

consultation process was not

required.

A letter and information

leaflet summarising the options

that were investigated was sent

to residents. However, it was

later acknowledged by the community

board that this went out

some time after the meetings

with residents and should have

been sent earlier.

Many residents who were

waiting for the second round

of consultation did not receive

this leaflet and were unaware

there would not be more public

consultation.

Residents were then told if

they had any objections to submit

a deputation at the community

board meeting where the

lease recommendation would be

made.

Four residents made deputations

and two noted disappointment

about the lack of proper

deputations were given due

consideration, due to the length

of time it took to make the

decision,” said Mr McKay in the

latest letter to the community

board.

Objections to the proposed

site include the loss of park

space, over-development of QE

II Park, loss of trees, cost of

ground improvements, suitability

of other sites and the visual

impact of the building.

Shirley Boys’ recipe book

embraces sugar-free diet

• By Sophie Cornish

A CLASS of Shirley Boys’ High

students are passionate about

combating high sugar intake.

The year 13 food studies class

has created a low-sugar recipe

book called Life is Sweet which

goes on sale today.

The book aims to educate

readers about ways to consume

less sugar and the positive health

benefits as a result.

Food studies teacher Pete

Beswick said he almost fell off his

seat when the boys approached

him about the idea for the book.

“At first I was sceptical but

also wanted them to be able

to achieve this, so we grabbed

the bull by the horns. It has

increased my stress levels somewhat,

but I have been so proud

of the guys and what we have

achieved together that the stress

took a back seat,” he said.

The book was created as part

of an assessment involving an

investigation into a nutritional

issue affecting the well-being of

New Zealanders.

Every recipe was trialled and

adjusted over five weeks by the

class.

A $6000 loan from the PTA

was used to create the book,

along with advertising sold to

AUTHORS: The year 13 food studies class created the book

Life is Sweet.

Pak’nSave Wainoni, Peter Timbs

Meats and Caxton Press, the

book’s publisher.

It is available for purchase

from the school for $15. There are

1000 copies for sale.

Proceeds will be split between

a donation to Christchurch

Diabetes New Zealand and next

year’s class for their assessment.

COVER ART: The front cover

of the Life is Sweet cookbook,

which was produced by

students at SBHS.

FOUR WAITAKIRI School

pupils volunteered to clean

windows for elderly residents

during their school holidays.

Rosa Jugovac, Lauren Sheere,

Holly Neale and Ollie McCosh

worked with the Te Whare

Roimata organisation on its annual

Spring Cleaning Day, which

coincided with the International

Day of Older Persons.

Te Whare Roimata co-ordinator

Jenny Smith said the day

came about following cut backs

to home help some years ago.

“We were aware that a number

of older people in the inner city

and eastern neighbourhoods

struggled to get things done in

their homes, and so this was

a neighbourhood response we

could offer them,” said Ms Smith.

“It was just lovely to have the

children involved and learn

about not only being of service

but also how we can support

older people.”

Waitakiri School spokeswoman

Kim Hillson said the pupils

were very enthusiastic about

helping elderly residents.

Rawhiti’s $2 pool opens

for another summer lap

PEGASUS POST

• By Sophie Cornish

THE ‘$2 pool’ project at Rawhiti

School will open again in

December.

Project organiser, Eastern

Community Sport and Recreation

Inc, is currently applying for

funding for the 2017/2018 season.

Funding would cover staff and

lifeguard wages, administration,

chemicals, electricity and other

items, such as sunblock and first

aid.

The city council has recommended

the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board approve a

grant of $7000 to the Eastern

Community Sport and Recreation

Inc from the discretionary

response fund.

The pool will be open seven

days a week from 11am-6pm. It

attracted more than 8000 visits

last summer.

The pool is set to open from

December 16 to January 28.

The project first began in 2013

and has continued every summer

since.

Taking Care of family

Wills, Powers of Attorney, Family Trusts, Rest Home Subsidy,

and Separation and Relationship Property Agreements,

we’ll take care of you and your family.

Physical Sense supports senior well-being

Eight yEars ago, the Physical sense

gym and Physio in sydenham, created a

program to help stroke survivors. Their

specialised exercise program is based

on the work of the Burwood stroke

rehabilitation team.

Participants were so happy with the

classes and the benefits they experienced

that it has now grown to four classes

each week. New classes have also been

added to be effective for those who have

suffered from Osteoporosis, intermittent

Claudication, and Diabetes. On top of

that they also run four weekly classes

for seniors. These weekly rehabilitation

and injury prevention classes can lead to

continued gym membership at a reduced

cost. Participants may also be eligible for

a WiNZ subsidy to pay for the continued

gym membership.

Join one of the classes and increase

your strength and mobility or just come

in to find out more about what assistance

is available for you.

it all starts with a free assessment

on Monday at 11.30 am where an

experienced physiotherapist will assess

your situation and advise you on the most

appropriate exercise group with the aim to

enable you to keep living as independently

as possible.

Life can get tougher as we get older,

and it’s often easy to think that we should

simply struggle on. yet a huge range of

services are available to make life easier.

Because these services are sometimes

difficult to find, a new non-profit Centre

for senior Wellbeing has been established.

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
