Urgent<br />

meeting<br />

sought with<br />

Education<br />

Ministry<br />

on future<br />

of schools<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

AN URGENT meeting with the<br />

Ministry of Education has been<br />

requested to discuss the future<br />

of several school sites across east<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board want to hold<br />

the meeting before Christmas.<br />

Future use of the Burwood<br />

School site, a delay in the<br />

demolition of Aranui Primary<br />

School, discussions about the sale<br />

of Central New Brighton School,<br />

and the impact six school<br />

closures has had will be on the<br />

agenda.<br />

The community board will also<br />

request meetings be set up with<br />

community groups in response to<br />

the use of the Aranui and Central<br />

New Brighton school sites.<br />

Said Coastal-Burwood Ward<br />

city councillor Glenn Livingstone:<br />

“Given the significance of the loses<br />

– several schools – we’re saying,<br />

hey, we want your attention.”<br />

“Because this is big. Those<br />

decisions were made following the<br />

earthquake.”<br />

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

from the editor’s desk<br />

THERE APPEARS to be a bone of<br />

contention over whether the grass on an<br />

empty section in Avondale (see page 3) is a<br />

fire risk or not.<br />

Neighbour Maree Ross has been trying<br />

without success to get the undergrowth cut<br />

for sometime.<br />

She and a nearby kindergarten say it’s a fire risk.<br />

It is the section owner’s responsibility to cut the undergrowth.<br />

But that person can’t be traced.<br />

So Maree wants the city council to step in.<br />

It appears they won’t. They’ve told her the undergrowth isn’t a<br />

health risk in terms of rats, flies and other inhabitants.<br />

Fire risk doesn’t seem to be on their radar.<br />

And that’s puzzling given there’s a fire ban in place and the<br />

region is tinder dry.<br />

Clean this up – neighbour<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

AN AVONDALE woman fed<br />

up with living next door to an<br />

overgrown property has been<br />

told it isn’t the city council’s<br />

problem.<br />

Maree Ross has tried for more<br />

than 18 months to get some<br />

action on the mess which she<br />

believes is a fire risk, attracts<br />

flies and vermin and is affecting<br />

her physical and mental health.<br />

The property is next<br />

to Woolley St Kidsfirst<br />

kindergarten which is also<br />

concerned about the fire risk.<br />

Ms Ross was visited by a<br />

city council staff member on<br />

Thursday. He said the section<br />

is not a health nuisance. The<br />

section was not assessed<br />

for fire risk, a city council<br />

spokeswoman said yesterday.<br />

The city council was unable<br />

to contact the owner to clean up<br />

the property, Ms Ross said she<br />

was told.<br />

City council spokeswomen<br />

Claire Le Grice said the<br />

maintenance responsibilities<br />

for private property sit with the<br />

property owner, unless it poses a<br />

safety risk.<br />

“The council may issue a<br />

notice requiring an occupier to<br />

trim or remove vegetation where<br />

it is likely to become a source<br />

of danger in the event of a fire;<br />

or it causes an obstruction by<br />

encroaching onto footpaths,<br />

cycleways or roads.<br />

The city council placed fire<br />

restrictions on the city on<br />

Saturday.<br />

“Long, dry grass can cause<br />

fires to spread quickly so it<br />

is important at this time of<br />

year that people keep any<br />

grass around their property<br />

trimmed,’’ said Richard Neale,<br />

compliance and investigations<br />

team leader.<br />

Ms Ross said the empty<br />

section was purchased after the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

Nothing has been done to<br />

maintain the site since.<br />

Ms Ross’ hay-fever has<br />

increased since living next to the<br />

overgrown garden.<br />

ROCKABILLY UPDATE<br />

The future of Rockabilly Show<br />

and Shine in Rawhiti Domain<br />

may be decided today. Event<br />

organisers will be meeting with<br />

city council staff and members<br />

from the Christchurch Archery<br />

Club to discuss dates. The<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board has expressed its support<br />

for the event. It has also requested<br />

advice from the city council about<br />

the possibility of a designated<br />

events space being established<br />

in the domain. Rockabilly event<br />

organisers cannot commence<br />

with planning and marketing<br />

until a date is confirmed.<br />

RABBITS TO STAY<br />

Rabbits living on roundabouts<br />

in the red zone are able to stay. A<br />

New Zealand Transport Agency<br />

spokeswoman said the issue<br />

has ‘gone on the back-burner’<br />

and nothing more will be<br />

happening this year. The rabbits<br />

occupy roundabouts on Anzac<br />

Drive, New Brighton and Travis<br />

Rds. There have been traffic<br />

safety concerns because of the<br />

distractions they were causing<br />

to motorists. There were also<br />

concerns about people crossing<br />

the road with children to get to<br />

the roundabouts. NZTA has said<br />

the rabbits might have to be culled<br />

or captured and released.<br />

Christmas tips to keep<br />

your pets safe over the<br />

festive season<br />

‘Tis the season to be jolly! In the spirit of the<br />

coming festive season the staff at McMaster<br />

and Heap Veterinary Practice wish to give<br />

you some helpful tips on how to keep your<br />

pets safe and happy over this busy time.<br />

Festive foods:<br />

Many festive foods can be harmful and<br />

toxic to cats & dogs – here are some of<br />

the major ones that pop up every year at<br />

Christmas time!<br />

Grapes and Raisins - Some types of<br />

grapes and raisins have been shown to<br />

cause kidney failure in dogs when eaten<br />

in toxic quantities. So think before offering<br />

your pet some tasty Christmas cake or<br />

yummy ‘treats’ off the fruit platers.<br />

Onions - Pieces of raw onion, onion<br />

powder, or even cooked onion can cause<br />

damage to red blood cells, which could<br />

result in hemolytic anemia.<br />

Garlic - fresh and powdered forms of garlic<br />

are more potent than onions. These also<br />

cause damage to red blood cells. Cats are<br />

much more sensitive as they have more<br />

fragile red blood cells.<br />

Xylitol - Xylitol is a sugar alternative that<br />

is used in many commercial ‘sugar-free’<br />

candies, gum, and other food items.<br />

Xylitol has been shown to cause severe<br />

hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver<br />

damage in dogs and can be fatal. Xylitol<br />

keeps popping up in unexpected places –<br />

the newest one is peanut butter, so be sure<br />

to read the label carefully.<br />

Macadamia Nuts - dangerous to dogs<br />

when eaten can result in weakness,<br />

depression, vomiting, incoordination, and<br />

tremors. In most cases, dogs developed<br />

clinical signs within the first twelve hours<br />

after eating the macadamia nuts.<br />

Chocolate - Contains Theobromine and<br />

caffeine which can cause increased heart<br />

rate, tremors, and excitation, depending<br />

on the type and the quantity ingested<br />

potentially death when ingested at a toxic<br />

dose. Other effects seen with chocolate<br />

overdose are vomiting, diarrhea, increased<br />

thirst, increased urination, and lethargy.<br />

Dark chocolate is the most serious as it<br />

contains the most theobromine, then milk<br />

chocolate, while white chocolate doesn’t<br />

contain any, but still not healthy for your<br />

dog to have.<br />

Cooked bones – These easily splinter<br />

and the bone shards can cause choking or<br />

get stuck in your dog’s gums or stomach<br />

resulting in emergency surgery. Discourage<br />

your dog from foraging in your bins and try<br />

to secure all of the lids.<br />

Christmas Decorations<br />

Christmas decorations are not for pets to<br />

play with.<br />

• Keep your pet away from plants, many of<br />

which are poisonous, especially lilies which<br />

are extremely toxic for cats and results in<br />

acute kidney failure.<br />

• Keep electrical wires and batteries out of<br />

your pets reach. Chewing electrical cables<br />

can cause electric shock or burns to the<br />

mouth.<br />

• Be careful if you are using tinsel on your<br />

tree. If eaten, the tinsel can block your pets<br />

intestines – we saw several of these last<br />

Christmas!<br />

Don’t forget about your RABBITS<br />

Flystrike is a serious condition in rabbits.<br />

It occurs mostly in the summer months<br />

and we see a lot of cases over the holiday<br />

season as people get really busy and forget<br />

to regularly check on their pets.<br />

Flystrike is extremely distressing and it is<br />

also potentially fatal. It is caused by flies that<br />

are attracted to damp fur, urine, faeces and<br />

the odour of the rabbit’s scent. The flies<br />

will land on the rabbit normally around the<br />

rabbits rear end and lay their eggs. Within<br />

a very short time of 2 hours the eggs will<br />

hatch into maggots which start to feed on<br />

the rabbits skin. This process happens very<br />

quickly and is not always caught in time.<br />

Check your rabbit twice a day and if you<br />

find a maggot on your rabbit take it to us<br />

immediately.<br />

The Tart Tin<br />

By Matt Cross<br />

You know you’re onto something good when there’s consistently a<br />

queue for a particular Farmers Market stall. So it is for Matt Cross’s<br />

Tart Tin at the weekly Otago Farmers Market. Those in the know flock<br />

to Matt’s attractively styled retro caravan to get their fill of hand-made,<br />

delicious sweet treats. In this delightful cookbook, you will discover<br />

recipes from throughout Matt’s career as a professional chef and he<br />

will guide you through the creation of treats that he’s famed for selling<br />

at the Otago Farmers Market. For Matt, these recipes aren’t just a list of<br />

ingredients and measurements, they’re snapshots of his life, passed on<br />

from chefs and people who have influenced him through his journey.<br />

Matt’s approachable recipes and helpful hints allow even the novice<br />

baker to master the delights of the Tart Tin’s most delicious treats. In<br />

passing on these recipes, Matt hopes that everyone can enjoy a sweet<br />

moment once in a while.<br />

Dogs with Jobs<br />

By Laura Greaves<br />

Discover the true stories of some of the world’s incredible working<br />

dogs, and the extraordinary jobs they undertake. Meet Molly, the<br />

diabetes alert dog whose round-the-clock job is to keep her two<br />

young owners healthy; Bailey, the Assistant Director of Seagulls<br />

whose job is to keep the pesky birds away from the heritage vessels<br />

at the Australian National Maritime Museum and Daisy, the Collie mix<br />

who is a full-time guide dog to another blind dog. From inspirational<br />

moments of bravery in service, to tales of dogs doing the jobs that no<br />

one else can, these are the life-affirming stories of the hardest-working<br />

dogs in the world.<br />

The long and winding Aotearoa<br />

By George Lockyer<br />

Driving a car (when are we there) you’re always on the way to<br />

moment. And sometimes there’s literally nowhere else you’d rather<br />

be. In George Lockyer’s new book, The Long and Winding Aotearoa,<br />

we find him riding his Triumph Bonneville around the country, from<br />

Kaitaia to Invercargill, and seeing his often humorous take on life<br />

from under a crash helmet. On the way round our magnificent country<br />

he stops to interview some fascinating characters, all with a story to<br />

tell. We meet not just motorcyclists, but a wide variety of kiwis, from<br />

craftsmen, artists and firefighters, to rugby coaches, quakers and<br />

architects.<br />

Sculpture turns back to dust<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A SELF-destructing sculpture<br />

represents the “fragility” of the<br />

eastern suburbs, according to its<br />

creator.<br />

New Brighton-based artist<br />

Melissa Macleod’s Salt of the<br />

Earth sculpture is made almost<br />

entirely of sand and has slowly<br />

collapsed.<br />

Located in the red zone on<br />

the corner of Linwood Ave and<br />

Woodham Rd, the temporary<br />

sculpture attempts to link east<br />

Christchurch to the central city.<br />

“I am interested in giving the<br />

east more of a voice. I like to<br />

do that by using materials that<br />

make you think of the east side<br />

of town. Sand is an obvious one,”<br />

said Macleod.<br />

It is a continuation of her other<br />

art works which engage the<br />

city’s coastal communities and<br />

the environmental and social<br />

challenges they face.<br />

In the past, Macleod has used<br />

sea water to create pieces and<br />

could possibly use coastal yellow<br />

daisies in future projects.<br />

The giant sand wedge<br />

mimicked a door stop when it<br />

was first built.<br />

“It’s a strong shape. The<br />

wedge is used a lot in sculptural<br />

practice. It’s quite significant in<br />

that it does prise things open,<br />

ARTISTIC: Melissa Macleod with her crumbling sand sculpture<br />

which she says reflects the “fragility of the east”.<br />

and also as a door jam, it holds<br />

things open. I quite like its<br />

symbolism.”<br />

“The crucial point for me<br />

is that it is strong but it also<br />

dissolves, softens and weakens<br />

and that is essentially cutting to<br />

what the core of life is out this<br />

way (in the east).”<br />

Macleod was aware of<br />

the sculpture’s potential<br />

disintegration but “hoped that it<br />

would speak to the strength and<br />

fragility of a community that is<br />

both determined and trodden<br />

under foot”.<br />

“The ultimate aim was that it<br />

might stand as a strong looking<br />

form for maybe a day, but it<br />

is sand and I asked it to do an<br />

incredible thing by being that<br />

big, but I think the hot days we<br />

had could’ve affected it. The<br />

ground is very solid and there is<br />

a lot of vibration in the ground<br />

from passing trucks.”<br />

She hopes the crumbling<br />

sculpture will challenge public<br />

perception.<br />

“It’s a real test of what public<br />

sculpture can be or what the<br />

public will cope with to some<br />

degree. It’s sort of like placing a<br />

broken thing in a public place<br />

and that might challenge some<br />

people. They might not see it as<br />

part of the work – they might see<br />

it as a problem.”<br />

•From page 1<br />

“They didn’t have to be, we<br />

were already going through<br />

enough,” “It’s time to sit down<br />

and have a conversation. It’s<br />

kind of along the lines of ‘you<br />

owe us’,” Cr Livingstone said.<br />

Recently, a facility needs<br />

assessment was<br />

carried out by an<br />

independent social<br />

researcher for the<br />

community board<br />

to identify gaps<br />

within communities<br />

following the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

It found a lack<br />

of community<br />

meeting points in<br />

the east, especially<br />

in Dallington, Avondale and<br />

Burwood.<br />

The former Burwood School<br />

site has been suggested as a site<br />

for a meeting facility.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Community board<br />

requests urgent<br />

meeting on school<br />

sites with ministry<br />

Primary site could be used for<br />

community purposes as well.<br />

As a result of a lack of<br />

facilities, the report found<br />

residents were feeling an<br />

increase in loneliness.<br />

“Informants talked about<br />

older residents who now do not<br />

go anywhere and are very<br />

socially isolated,” said the<br />

report.<br />

Dallington Residents’<br />

Association chairman<br />

Mark Beanland agreed.<br />

“There’s always been<br />

apathy and there’s always<br />

been the feeling that<br />

we’ve been forgotten,” Mr<br />

Beanland said.<br />

Cr Livingstone hopes<br />

the meeting with MOE<br />

will help this issue.<br />

“We lost the roots, home,<br />

place and belonging . . . they<br />

were taken away not only by the<br />

earthquakes but by decisions<br />

made by Government,” he said.<br />

Principal’s Report<br />

Warm greetings to<br />

the Linwood College<br />

community. Kia ora<br />

koutou. Talofa lava.<br />

Kia orana. Malo e<br />

lelei. Bula. Fakaalofa<br />

atu. Namaste.<br />

Kumusta.<br />

Linwood College<br />

enjoys celebrating<br />

student success in all its forms so our<br />

congratulations to the prizewinners<br />

highlighted on this page. I would like to also<br />

congratulate all Junior students who were<br />

awarded prizes at the <strong>2017</strong> Junior Prize Giving<br />

ceremony held on 11th <strong>December</strong>.<br />

Our community views education as<br />

the wellbeing of the whole person. All<br />

developmentally positive experiences enrich<br />

our students’ understanding of whom they<br />

are and broaden their outlook. They nurture<br />

students’ classroom focus by contextualising<br />

their learning and sowing the seeds of positive<br />

ambition.<br />

Linwood College believes in a “pathwayed<br />

Other Major Award Winners<br />

curriculum”. This means the school, students<br />

and families knowing:<br />

1. Students’ learning and skills as they come<br />

into LC from our partner primary schools<br />

and building on these successes<br />

2. How the learning at LC connects to what<br />

the students want to do when they leave<br />

school. “What are my post-school pathways<br />

and how does my LC help me achieve these<br />

pathways?”<br />

In this way learning is meaningful to the<br />

individual and strengths-based. At Linwood<br />

the individual matters.<br />

Finally, the Education Review Office reviewed<br />

Linwood College in the second half of term 3.<br />

The confirmed report is now public and I am<br />

delighted to say that the school is back on the<br />

three year return cycle. It is a testament to<br />

everyone’s collective vision and positive work<br />

for our school: BOT, staff, students, whanau,<br />

partner schools and community.<br />

Nga mihi nui and best wishes for the festive<br />

season and summer holiday.<br />

Year 10s get Enterprising<br />

Last week ninety Year 10 students worked<br />

hard for three days in the school gym to create<br />

business ideas. Two presenters from the Young<br />

Enterprise Trust came to the school to lead the<br />

students through the process of creating and<br />

developing businesses. On Wednesday, the<br />

students were put into groups of between five and<br />

ten students and given the challenge of creating<br />

a new business based on modern technology. By<br />

Friday, the students were ready to present their<br />

ideas and associated business plans to judges<br />

from the local business community.<br />

Here Sina Sila and her team mates are presenting<br />

their idea ‘Zoinks’ - an app that stops you from making<br />

unnecessary purchases to Gyaney from BP.<br />

<strong>2017</strong> Senior Prizegiving Awards<br />

Early in Term 3, the school’s senior<br />

Weight of gym phobia lifted<br />

ADVERSITY: Libby Searle<br />

started her own home gym<br />

and fitness business and was<br />

named small group trainer of<br />

the year at the New Zealand<br />

Exercise Industry Awards.<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

LIBBY SEARLE used to fear<br />

exercise and the gym as she<br />

struggled to overcome obesity,<br />

anorexia and binge eating.<br />

But now the fit and trim<br />

business owner runs her own<br />

home gym to help women build<br />

confidence and get over the fears<br />

she once had.<br />

The competitive bench-presser<br />

has just won a national exercise<br />

award for small group trainer of<br />

the year.<br />

The 26-year-old Avondale<br />

resident runs Libby Searle<br />

Fitness on Breezes Rd and<br />

is “changing women’s lives<br />

through weight training”.<br />

“I always thought that the<br />

gym was for fit people, so<br />

when that changed in my life,<br />

I wanted to help other women<br />

realise they could do that too. I<br />

wanted them to make that first<br />

step into the gym and that’s<br />

where my group classes, ladies<br />

lifting, was born.”<br />

The personal trainer opened<br />

her home gym in 2016 and now<br />

runs 13 ‘ladies’ lifting’ classes<br />

and four high-intensity circuit<br />

classes every week.<br />

“I love working from home<br />

and having my own studio. I<br />

think the girls like having that<br />

privacy as well. We’ve got our<br />

own wee community going on,”<br />

said Miss Searle.<br />

Her journey to health<br />

started in 2011 when a flatmate<br />

suggested they run a half<br />

marathon.<br />

“At the age of 19, I was<br />

heading towards obesity, had<br />

lost all confidence, was getting<br />

sick all the time, and couldn’t<br />

even walk to the end of the<br />

street without getting puffed.”<br />

“We ran a lamp post, walked<br />

NO PAIN NO<br />

GAIN: Libby<br />

Searle hard<br />

at work.<br />

a lamp post and we actually did<br />

it . . . and that was the turning<br />

point for me,” she said.<br />

Miss Searle started going to<br />

a gym following a hip injury<br />

which prevented her from running.<br />

She was thrilled to receive the<br />

award. “I was so surprised that<br />

I had won. I was really stoked<br />

actually, it was quite cool.”<br />

She hopes to own her own<br />

commercial, boutique-style gym<br />

in the future.<br />

Users to take over community<br />

centre bookings from council<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

A NEW community facilities booking<br />

service may help maximise the use of free<br />

spaces for groups in the city’s east.<br />

Local community groups have expressed<br />

an interest in managing the bookings<br />

done through the city council’s call<br />

centre.<br />

A community facility report for the<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community Board<br />

completed by an independent researcher<br />

found the booking system was not as effective<br />

as it could be.<br />

“Concerns were raised that bookings<br />

for the community centres are taken and<br />

managed by the city council call centre,<br />

and anyone can book the facility for<br />

any duration providing it is available.<br />

In practice, this means that for large<br />

chunks of time on a recurring basis, the<br />

facility is booked out by the same groups,<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

ACCESS: The Aranui/<br />

Wainoni Community<br />

Centre will trial a new<br />

booking service, with<br />

user groups taking<br />

over the role from city<br />

council.<br />

preventing access by other groups or local<br />

residents,” said researcher Sarah Wylie.<br />

She interviewed about 27 key stakeholders<br />

from suburbs in both wards.<br />

The co-ordinated approach will make<br />

it easier to match the multiple facilities to<br />

users’ needs.<br />

Residents from Aranui, North New<br />

Brighton, South Brighton, Queenspark<br />

and Parklands identified the change<br />

would be positive.<br />

The city council plans to conduct a trial<br />

with the Aranui Community Trust for the<br />

Aranui/Wainoni Community Centre.<br />

If successful, the Aranui Community<br />

Trust will also manage the bookings for St<br />

Ambrose church.<br />

The Bridge South Brighton Trust has<br />

also identified an interest in taking over<br />

bookings for the South Brighton Community<br />

Centre and South Brighton Surf Life<br />

Saving Club.<br />

Pupils tested at police college<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

FOUR MARSHLAND School<br />

pupils are on their way to being<br />

as fit as a police officer.<br />

The year 7 and 8 pupils gained<br />

the quickest time for intermediate<br />

students in the physical<br />

competency test at the Royal New<br />

Zealand Police College in Wellington.<br />

The annual event is run by Blue<br />

Light New Zealand with teams<br />

of intermediate-aged pupils participating<br />

in mental and physical<br />

challenges.<br />

The Marshland team finished<br />

third overall out of 20 teams in<br />

the two-day national competition.<br />

Marshland was one of two<br />

Christchurch schools selected<br />

from a city-wide competition run<br />

by Blue Light Canterbury to get<br />

an all-expenses paid trip to Wellington.<br />

St Patrick’s School, Bryndwr,<br />

was the other selected and the<br />

two teams trained and travelled<br />

together.<br />

Marshland teacher Paul Tyson<br />

said the pupils are “really motivated<br />

kids.”<br />

“They came back buzzing . . .<br />

they were really wrapped to get<br />

the fastest time. Even though they<br />

came third overall, they were still<br />

really pleased with that result,”<br />

said Mr Tyson.<br />

One of the four pupils has<br />

already showed interest in joining<br />

the police force.<br />

Avonside old girl at emerging<br />

leaders meeting in Thailand<br />

MAKING FRIENDS: Courtney Cray with some Thai children on<br />

a visit outside of Bangkok.<br />

A FORMER Avonside Girls’<br />

High student is making her mark<br />

internationally, taking part in the<br />

University Scholars Leadership<br />

Symposium in Thailand.<br />

Courtney Cray was one of<br />

more than 900 students from<br />

about 60 countries at the eighth<br />

symposium aimed at emerging<br />

leaders.<br />

The Parklands resident who is<br />

studying towards a Bachelor of<br />

Social Work degree is passionate<br />

about supporting families<br />

facing challenges and hopes her<br />

experience at the symposium<br />

will help.<br />

“Within New Zealand, and<br />

globally, even beginning to<br />

comprehend the magnitude of<br />

the social injustices taking place<br />

can be overwhelming,” she said.<br />

Mrs Cray said a highlight of<br />

the symposium was visiting a<br />

village outside Bangkok where<br />

people are working to be fully<br />

self-sufficient.<br />

“During our time, we met<br />

with locals, and learnt firsthand<br />

about the Thai farmers’<br />

lifestyle and how they worked<br />

collaboratively to be selfsufficient.<br />

The experience left me<br />

with a greater appreciation of<br />

the hard work that goes into<br />

producing rice and admiration<br />

for the grassroots initiatives the<br />

community have in place.”<br />

The 27-year-old juggles study<br />

with part-time work and looking<br />

after her two-year-old daughter.<br />

Mrs Cray said it was a<br />

remarkable experience .<br />

“I look back to the beginning<br />

of the year and never saw myself<br />

doing this,” she said.<br />

“It was truly an amazing<br />

opportunity getting to meet<br />

with such a diverse group of<br />

people and learn how they<br />

were pursuing change in their<br />

communities. I came away<br />

feeling challenged and inspired.”<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

From the Board<br />

As we go to print we are excited to hear<br />

our new Bishop, Fr Paul Martin SM,<br />

has been appointed to Christchurch. In<br />

celebrating the news, a special thank<br />

you must go to Fr Rick Loughnan for<br />

his leadership in the interim, to the<br />

Diocese for its ongoing support and<br />

we remember Bishop Barry Jones<br />

with fondness. Bishop-Elect Paul’s<br />

appointment represents an exciting<br />

new phase of growth for our<br />

Catholic community.<br />

Thank you to our Board of Trustees,<br />

college and community and members<br />

of the Marian Foundation for your work<br />

throughout <strong>2017</strong>.<br />

To our Marian girls – relax and enjoy the<br />

well-earned break. There are some fantastic<br />

programmes, and collaborative project<br />

opportunities planned for 2018.<br />

And finally, congratulations to our <strong>2017</strong><br />

Marian College leavers. The gospel values<br />

– which underpin the special character of<br />

Marian College – will guide you well into<br />

the future. We wish you all the very best<br />

and please keep in touch.<br />

Wishing you good health and blessings<br />

has received the St John Grand Prior<br />

Award in a ceremony hosted by the<br />

Governor-General in Dunedin.<br />

The Grand Prior Award is the ultimate<br />

award, other than for bravery, for St John<br />

Cadets. Georgiana was one of 90 cadets<br />

- including former Marian student Steph<br />

Wessing (left) - from around New Zealand<br />

to receive the prestigious award.<br />

‘I love learning new leadership skills and<br />

I’m really thankful I joined St John, as<br />

otherwise I wouldn’t have considered the<br />

Navy as a career path,’ she says.<br />

Georgiana’s plans include a gap year,<br />

travel, and a career in the Navy<br />

as a medic.<br />

The opportunities and benefits of an innercity<br />

campus are many for Marian College<br />

students.<br />

From Year 11, students can choose to<br />

earn credits at Ara Institute of Canterbury,<br />

making the most of excellent facilities and<br />

teaching expertise – just across the road.<br />

College students<br />

participating in the<br />

are realising if they put<br />

their minds to it – they<br />

can do and be whatever<br />

they want.<br />

The programme is a<br />

partnership between<br />

Ngāi Tūāhuriri, Te<br />

Tapuae o Rehua<br />

and seven eastern<br />

Christchurch secondary<br />

schools and aims to<br />

from Otago University. Keely will be<br />

participating in a week-long Hands-on<br />

at Otago programme during the summer<br />

holidays to experience being a science<br />

student on campus.<br />

Keely says she is very excited to be<br />

accepted onto the fully-funded programme.<br />

‘I’m interested in a career in health,<br />

science and physiology so it will be a great<br />

opportunity to see what Otago University is<br />

like,’ she says.<br />

‘Recognising my gifts and<br />

understanding how I can use them to<br />

help others, was the biggest realisation<br />

for me,’ Rawinia says.<br />

Zonta Awards<br />

The Zonta Awards are a celebration of the<br />

highest sports achievers - leaders in their<br />

sport locally and often competitors on the<br />

world stage.<br />

This year, three Marian College students<br />

were finalists at the Zonta Sports Awards.<br />

Renee Rae won the top award for her<br />

contribution to netball umpiring. A judge<br />

said Renee follows a long tradition of<br />

Marian students who have won the award,<br />

and there was something very special about<br />

Marian College and its tradition of service.<br />

Rebecca Lake (Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Irakehu)<br />

and Millicent Smith (Ngāpuhi) were both<br />

nominated for outstanding achievement<br />

for their New Zealand representation<br />

in football and ice hockey respectively.<br />

KIDSTUFF<br />

Kids love<br />

MAINTENANCE: Donnell Park’s playground is in good condition, however the<br />

tennis court, basketball court, paths, drinking fountain and toilet block need<br />

repairs.<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

Call to address maintenance<br />

issues at Donnell Park<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

“A LOT of maintenance”<br />

is needed in Burwood’s<br />

Donnell Park before<br />

it is considered a fully<br />

functioning community<br />

park again.<br />

Coastal-Burwood<br />

Ward city councillor<br />

David East (right) said<br />

with the east Burwood<br />

community growing,<br />

the park upkeep needs<br />

to be addressed.<br />

“Already when you drive<br />

down Travis Rd now you<br />

can see a number of new<br />

houses being built and<br />

there will be a need for a<br />

community park.”<br />

City council head of<br />

parks Brent Smith said the<br />

playground is in good condition<br />

but the tennis court,<br />

basketball court,<br />

paths, drinking<br />

fountain and toilet<br />

block need repair<br />

or renewal work.<br />

“Staff will be<br />

scoping out the<br />

repairs over the<br />

coming weeks, identifying<br />

budget requirements and<br />

checking on the status of<br />

the infrastructure servicing<br />

the area. This includes<br />

reinstating a linkage path<br />

across to Kingsbridge<br />

Drive from the playground,”<br />

said Mr Smith.<br />

Reinstating the sports<br />

field is not likely due to its<br />

low lying nature following<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

In the meantime, the<br />

mowing around the<br />

playground and the<br />

garden maintenance will<br />

be brought back up to the<br />

required standard.<br />

“It has potential, the<br />

infrastructure is all there,<br />

it just needs bit of TLC to<br />

bring it back to scratch,”<br />

said Cr East.<br />

FLAME FILES<br />

Fire warning as summer<br />

starts heating up early<br />

• By Mark Thomas – fire<br />

risk management officer<br />

AS THE summer heats up,<br />

so does the number of calls<br />

our troops are attending.<br />

It’s normal to have about<br />

100 calls in a week.<br />

Weather events, of<br />

course, add to the number.<br />

So the 169 incidents<br />

attended last week can at<br />

least in part be attributed<br />

to the weather, or the heat,<br />

to be more precise.<br />

A large number of false<br />

alarms, presumably from<br />

fire detection systems<br />

drooping and a large number<br />

of ambulance assists<br />

including, unfortunately,<br />

several sudden deaths,<br />

added to the list.<br />

Also we attended far too<br />

many grass and skip or bin<br />

fires.<br />

While a few of these are<br />

the result of accidents most<br />

of them were lit deliberately.<br />

Whether it be kids<br />

playing or malicious firestarters,<br />

the dry conditions<br />

make all of these potentially<br />

serious.<br />

The Governors Bay crew<br />

were called to the local<br />

hotel on <strong>December</strong> 2 to<br />

what turned out to be a<br />

patron puffing on a vaping<br />

cigarette.<br />

It’s a first for me to see<br />

this but hardly surprising.<br />

I followed a car the other<br />

day with two people both<br />

Miracle weight loss fruit<br />

An extract of a small pumpkin-like fruit<br />

called Garcinia Cambogia from India &<br />

Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight<br />

management & overall health. In fact many<br />

have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3<br />

times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has<br />

said it is the most effective & fastest working<br />

natural supplement to support weight loss.<br />

Even without exercise & diet changes<br />

many have found it beneficial, although even<br />

better & quicker results are often obtained<br />

with extra exercise & an improved diet.<br />

The extract of this amazing fruit is called<br />

Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax.<br />

Research has shown HCA to help suppress<br />

the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for<br />

longer, increase energy levels, help prevent<br />

fat from being made & stored in the body,<br />

increase lean muscle mass, increase<br />

serotonin levels in the brain that<br />

help control mood & sleep<br />

(great for emotional eaters),<br />

improve cholesterol levels<br />

that may help reduce<br />

the chances of strokes<br />

& cardiovascular<br />

disease, help prevent<br />

sugar spikes as well<br />

as other health<br />

benefits.<br />

It is considered<br />

a very safe<br />

supplement<br />

(although check first<br />

if you are on medication)<br />

as it has been used for centuries<br />

as a flavouring agent & digestive aid.<br />

To obtain reliable results it is important<br />

SUPER CitriMax<br />

CLINICAL STRENGTH GARCINIA CAMBOGIA<br />

According to Dr. Oz an extract of Garcinia Cambogia, (a small<br />

pumpkin-like fruit) called CitriMax is the most effective & fastest<br />

working natural supplement to support weight loss. However<br />

it is only the clinically researched Super CitriMax that contains a<br />

special blend that offers superior absorption & proven<br />

results compared to other non-Super CitriMax brands.<br />

CliniCAlly SHOwn tO:<br />

• Helps stop fat being made & stored in the body<br />

• Suppresses appetite & cravings. Feel fuller for longer<br />

• Increases energy levels & lean muscle mass<br />

• Increases Serotonin levels in the brain, especially good for<br />

emotional eaters. Serotonin may also improve mood & sleep.<br />

• Improves cholesterol & blood lipid levels<br />

Swanson Super CitriMax is a unique patented extract that<br />

is highly bio-available & clinically proven for reliable results.<br />

to take a product that contains a<br />

standardized extract of 60% HCA & also<br />

take the recommended amount as used in<br />

the clinical research. Some supplements also<br />

contain ChromeMate, a well-researched<br />

form of niacin-bound chromium to help<br />

improve the results even more.<br />

Dilo Oil – The Remarkable<br />

Skin Rejuvenator<br />

Until Rachel<br />

Hunter’s popular<br />

TV series “TOUR<br />

OF BEAUTY” Dilo<br />

Oil was relatively<br />

unknown, being one<br />

of the best-kept secrets<br />

of the Pacific Islands. It<br />

may however be the number<br />

one natural beauty oil available<br />

as it possesses powerful natural skin<br />

regeneration and healing properties.<br />

According to ethnobotanist Chris<br />

Kilham, Dilo (pronounced dee-lo)<br />

Oil is a powerful skin regenerator as<br />

it is one of the most effective agents<br />

in promoting the regeneration and<br />

formation of new tissue, thereby<br />

accelerating wound healing and<br />

the growth of healthy skin. Dilo<br />

Oil is super-absorbing and can<br />

penetrate all three layers of the<br />

skin, offering exceptional cell<br />

hydration and regeneration.<br />

As well as this, Dilo Oil has<br />

potent anti-inflammatory,<br />

antimicrobial, antifungal and<br />

antioxidant properties.<br />

Traditionally, Dilo Oil is used to keep the<br />

skin young and youthful and for just about<br />

any skin complaint. Some of the conditions<br />

for which it is considered helpful include<br />

abrasions, cuts and cracks, acne and<br />

acne scars, pimples, blemishes, stretch<br />

marks, wrinkles, blisters, burns (including<br />

chemical and radiation), diabetic sores,<br />

rashes, shaving irritation, dry or scaly skin,<br />

ARE YOU READY<br />

TO DOWNSIZE?<br />

Paying rates for a house that’s<br />

too big? Paying maintenance and<br />

heating costs for space you don’t use?<br />

A move to one of our<br />

architecturally designed villas<br />

at McKenzie Lifestyle Village in<br />

Geraldine will cut those costs.<br />

Three villas are available for<br />

GREAT food<br />

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...<br />

Your fresh food people<br />

CHRISTMAS HAM ON THE BONE GLAZED WITH PINEAPPLE<br />

Ingredients<br />

4kg ham on the bone<br />

1 cup canned crushed pineapple,<br />

drained<br />

1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed<br />

1 tsp ground ginger<br />

Directions<br />

Preheat the oven to 180 deg<br />

C. Run a knife around the shank<br />

end of the ham. Carefully slice<br />

under the edge of the rind at the<br />

base of the ham. Use your fingers<br />

to ease between the rind and the<br />

fat. Pull to gently remove the<br />

rind. With a sharp knife, score<br />

the fat with 3mm-deep cuts in a<br />

diamond pattern. Place ham in a<br />

foil-lined oven pan large enough<br />

to catch any glaze that drips as it<br />

cooks. Surround ham with one<br />

cup cold water.<br />

Drain pineapple and combine<br />

with glaze ingredients in a bowl.<br />

Smear glaze over scored fat of<br />

ham.<br />

Bake ham for 40-45min,<br />

basting at regular intervals until<br />

the glaze has caramelised to a<br />

golden brown.<br />

Rest the baked ham for at least<br />

15min before carving. Sliced ham<br />

can either be served hot or at<br />

room temperature.<br />

ROSE PETAL MERINGUE WITH SUMMER BERRIES AND STRAWBERRY SAUCE<br />

Ingredients<br />

5 eggs<br />

300g caster sugar<br />

1 Tbsp cornflour<br />

1 Tbsp dried rose petals<br />

300 ml cream<br />

250g blueberries<br />

250g raspberries<br />

1 lime<br />

250g strawberries<br />

Directions<br />

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C<br />

and line a flat baking sheet with<br />

non-stick baking paper. Using<br />

an electric beater, whip the egg<br />

whites until firm, then whisk in<br />

the sugar. Fold in the cornflour<br />

and rose petals and place large<br />

spoonfuls of the mixture onto<br />

the baking sheet. Bake for 40-<br />

45min.<br />

When the meringue tops are<br />

crisp, remove them from the<br />

oven and leave to cool. For the<br />

sauce, puree the strawberries<br />

and lime juice in a blender. If the<br />

flavour is too sharp, add a little<br />

icing sugar.<br />

Whip the cream until it looks<br />

soft. Mix the berries in a bowl.<br />

Place a meringue on each plate<br />

with a pile of cream next to it,<br />

Time to check your tyres before<br />

heading away on holiday<br />

As the holidays approach and plans are<br />

made for summer road trips, now is the<br />

time to check that your tyres are in good<br />

condition, says Julie Hurst of JCM Direct,<br />

the tyre specialists in Birmingham Drive.<br />

Julie and her husband Athol own the<br />

business, with Julie running it on a dayto-day<br />

basis.<br />

Now that WOFs on later model vehicles<br />

are issued every <strong>12</strong> months, drivers may<br />

be unaware that their tyres are becoming<br />

worn, Julie says.<br />

“Come in and see us. We offer free tyre<br />

checks, so you can head away on holiday<br />

knowing they are roadworthy and your<br />

family is safe.”<br />

If tyres do need replacing, JCM Direct<br />

offers a wide variety of quality brands at<br />

very competitive prices. They have new<br />

tyres for everything from cars, vans and<br />

4WDs, to caravans, ride-on mowers,<br />

wheelbarrows and trailers. As well as an<br />

excellent selection of quality second-hand<br />

tyres for most vehicles, they hold a vast<br />

selection of 4WD tyres in stock.<br />

JCM Direct also offer puncture repairs,<br />

supply and fitting of new and secondhand<br />

alloy wheels, wheel alignments,<br />

replacement factory steel rims and rim<br />

repairs.<br />

“We also specialise in old rims from<br />

the 1930s to 1970s for people with older<br />

caravans and trailers – the modern rims<br />

won’t fit those,” Julie says.<br />

Finance is available with Q Card or<br />

Farmers Card.<br />

JCM Direct is located on the corner<br />

of Birmingham Drive and Hands Road.<br />

They are open Monday to Friday, 9.30am-<br />

5pm and Saturday 9.30am-1pm. Phone<br />

Public Notice<br />

Is your property<br />

safe from fire?<br />

Here’s a guide to help understand<br />

the risk in your area<br />

During the fire season, there are some risks you need to know about to help keep you,<br />

your family and your property safe.<br />

Throughout New Zealand, there are different levels of risk, depending on where you<br />

live and what the area around you is like. As we build more and more homes in<br />

previously rural areas, the level of risk is different to properties built in a more urban<br />

setting. Make sure you check your property and are aware of your surroundings so<br />

you can be best prepared this fire season.<br />

Steps you need to take to keep your property safe<br />

1<br />

2<br />

3<br />

Make sure you have a ‘safe zone’ around your property<br />

- Clear vegetation close to your home. This could fuel a fire if one started.<br />

- Choose plants with low flammability – native plants are often better.<br />

- Keep your lawns mowed and green.<br />

- Don’t store firewood close to the house.<br />

- Clear your gutters of dry leaves.<br />

- Be careful when using any mechanical equipment in dry conditions.<br />

Have an escape plan and an agreed safe meeting place<br />

- Go to www.escapeplanner.co.nz to make a plan to get out of your<br />

home safely and agree a safe meeting place. Practise this regularly.<br />

- Think about where you will meet if you need to evacuate the area.<br />

- Have an emergency evacuation kit in case you need to leave quickly.<br />

- If in doubt, leave early.<br />

Good access for firefighters<br />

- Fire trucks need a lot of space to manoeuvre. Make sure there are no<br />

overgrown trees or other obstacles that may prevent access to your<br />

property.<br />

- We can pump from water supplies such as a pond, pool or tank.<br />

- Make sure your address or RAPID number is clearly visible.<br />

The fire risk applies to everyone, no matter where you live.<br />

ALI HARPER CELEBRATES<br />

THE JOY OF CHRISTMAS<br />

AWARD winning entertainer - Ali Harper - is<br />

once again bringing some Christmas Joy to<br />

Canterbury. Aer her sold out Christmas Joy<br />

shows last year, Ali has put together another<br />

beautifully festive concert incorporating the<br />

Voices Co Youth Ensemble along with winner<br />

of TVNZ’s Naked Choir and founder of Voices<br />

Co, Julian Hay on piano.<br />

“I adore this time of year. Not only because<br />

I see it through the eyes of my children but<br />

because it’s a special time to reflect on the past<br />

year, the joys and the challenges. I have<br />

created a concert that will include the angelic<br />

voices of children singing which is both pure<br />

and for me what Christmas is all about.”<br />

In a career spanning 25 years, Ali has<br />

starred in numerous musicals and plays across<br />

take us with her no matter what she sings, is a<br />

further extension of the celebration of song that<br />

Ali offers.” - Lindsay Clark, eatreview<br />
