No parking

for Rose St

TOP AWARDS: Megan Williams was awarded proxime accessit and Callum McInnes, who

received dux, were all smiles as they stood with Cashmere High principal Mark Wilson at the

school’s awards evening held last week at the Isaac Theatre Royal. The evening highlighted

the sporting, academic and cultural achievements of the year 13 students.

AFTER MORE than a year of

waiting, yellow no stopping lines

may finally be put in on Rose St.

They were meant to be painted

at the end of last month. But

instead it went back

to the community

board for yet another

vote – this time over

placement once again.

City council staff

have recommended

this time round that the

Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board put

the yellow lines on the

streets that intersect

with Rose St, including Fairview,

Marley View, Palmside Sts, and

Hoon Hay Rd.

Cashmere residents asked

almost 14 months ago for the city

council to put yellow no parking

lines. There were concerns about

parking along the street too close

to the kerb and making it hard

for other motorists to see.

Lower Cashmere Residents’

Association chairwoman Sue Bye

said the group had been waiting

to get the lines since August last

year and she doesn’t know what

the hold up is.

But the issue could be solved

today once the community board

sign off on the city council’s

recommendations.

Community board

chairwoman Karolin

Potter (left) said she was

sorry to the residents

and community that

it had taken so long to

get action, but now the

work would be done.

“It will be good for

the community to

finally see the problem

taken care of, it has taken a long

time to get to this point,” she

said.

The price has also more than

tripled since the city council said

they would have the work done,

going from $300 to $1000 to

complete the work.

Once the community

board have approved of the

recommendations the no parking

lines will be installed within

three to four weeks.

It’s 1965 and The

Everly Brothers are

playing a gig in Wellington.

Will it be Bye Bye Love

for Don, Phil and their fans?

DESK News.....................3,5, 8 & 15

IT IS one of the reasons we do

this job – taking a stand on an

issue that the community needs

addressed.

Last week, we were thrilled

for our readers near Addington

Park who have been successful

at getting a permanent ban on

freedom camping (page 3). If not

for people like resident Bruce

McNabb working with Southern

View on this issue, and the

countless number of letters we

had the outcome may have been

very different.

It was an important issue to

our readers; therefore it was

important to us.

This week we also celebrate the

achievements of young people.

Cashmere High School’s prizegiving

list is on page 7. Keep an

eye out over the coming weeks

as we will publish the lists from

other schools.

People power beats freedom campers

• By Caitlin Miles

AFTER MONTHS of lobbying,

freedom camping has been

banned from Addington Park.

THe city council has

prohibited freedom camping

completely from Addington

Park, Windsport Park, Lower

Styx River Mouth, French Farm

and Wainui. It has also banned

non self contained units from

camping throughout the entire

city.

It is news welcomed by

Addington resident Bruce

McNabb who was outspoken on

the issue and joined in Southern

View’s campaign to rid the park

of freedom campers.

Southern View campaigned for

the residents to be heard on the

issue, with extensive coverage

from when the problem first

arose in January. Residents were

angry about not being able to use

the car park, rubbish being left

behind and unsanitary toileting

by freedom campers. At one

point the city council received a

complaint of a camper defecating

on the playground swings.

City councillors Phil

Clearwater and Tim Scandrett

were both asked to provide

columns on what they were

going to do on the issue. The

Visitors key to recovery

Cashmere ward

city councillor

Tim Scandrett

speaks about

getting the city

back to its

pre-earthquake

days and

the development of

Christchurch Adventure

Park opening and St Martins

Volunteer Library

Christchurch definitely has had

its trials and tribulations over

the past few years. You must

admit though, that the spring

blossom, bulbs and blooms do

make our city look stunning

and make us realise why we all

are so committed to helping

Christchurch get back on its

feet. I am really pleased to be

returning to council with old and

new colleagues passionate about

working hard to achieve the best

for our city.

The next three years will see

many plans and consultations

come to fruition in the form

of new community and city

facilities, infrastructure repairs

and environmental initiatives.

Christchurch has a huge chance to

be better than ever. It is up to us

all to take up these opportunities

and achieve our combined vision

of a vibrant, sustainable and

liveable city.

It is imperative for us as

a council to continue to

consult with and listen to our

communities as we work together

to develop our city. It is also

imperative that visitors return to

Christchurch.

A project I have been heavily

involved with is the Christchurch

Adventure Park due to open in the

Port Hills in December this year.

The opening of this world-class

outdoor recreational facility will

really put Christchurch on the

map. It will offer locals a much

needed outdoor facility, provide

more than 100 local jobs and be

a huge attraction for overseas

visitors.

The St Martins Volunteer

Library is another community

facility due to re-open soon.

This icon on Wilson’s Rd will

return as a library, toy library and

community space.

You can’t really beat

Christchurch on a clear blue sky

Readers respond to a

recent article about

the Quarryman’s Trail

cycleway potentially

removing car parks,

changing speed limits

and road layouts and

demolishing homes

Hazel Agnew, of Somerfield

– Why are people so

attached to their cars?

If non cyclists are to start

cycling and feel safe doing

so cycleways are needed. Research

shows that cycling is safer

when more people cycle.

Parking isn’t a problem as

eight to 10 bikes can park in

one car parking space.

Businesses don’t need to

object because cyclists make

purchases too – in Portland,

Oregon, retailers found that

cyclists spent as much as other

people (smaller but higher

value goods). When more

people cycle the environment

is quieter and less polluted and

the population is healthier –

less of an obesity problem. So

everybody wins.

Graham Swann – I think

cycleways are great. About

time things were made safer

for bikes. This should encourage

more people to cycle, at

the same time reducing the

number of cars on the road. I

would feel a lot better knowing

that my children are safer on

the roads. At the moment it is

a nightmare with the amount

of cars on the road and making

more parks and more lanes

only makes this worst.

Also I have noticed the number

of car and bus drivers that

do not give way to cyclists only

because they are on a cycle.

We talk about this subject

often at work and all agree time

something was done

and cycleways will be a great

start.

Nicki Cartlidge – They

had their chance to develop a

world-class pioneering public

transport network in Christchurch.

If a cycleway was a crucial

part of such a network, then

maybe just maybe they’d begin

to have some justification for

making the route a priority.

But they screwed up their

chance and having done so, a

cycle route no way trumps the

waste of demolishing housing

. . . not to mention uprooting

human beings who have been

through enough.

Nicola N Craig Kinzett

– In a city where undamaged

houses are at a premium, why

would you demolish up to four

of them?

Ann Barsby – I thought

this was just a rumour.

Charmaine Andresen

– Crazy! People need homes,

not cycleways!

Jason Gemmill – Four

metres for a frickin cycleway?

Madness! Demolishing houses

to make a cycleway? Insanity.

Give well

this Christmas

Rubber factory opened

• By Sam Pickering

WELL-KNOWN rubber

company Skellerup opened its

new factory in Wigram last week.

The $60 million facility will

cover 19,000 sq m in Stark Drive

and employ about 200 people.

Prime Minister John Key

opened the factory.

Skellerup has been synonymous

in the rubber industry

since it opened its factory in

Woolston in 1910, and was a big

employer in the eastern suburbs

for decades.

The products the factory

makes range from industrial

rubber products, dairy rubberware,

waterproof footwear,

closed-cell foam products, mining

products, vacuum pumps

and construction products.

For many years it also made

footwear at its Woolston plant.

Company chairman Sir Selwyn

Cushing said Skellerup’s

Woolston site had been the company’s

heart and soul for more

than three-quarters of a century,

and he expected the Wigram

development would serve the

company and its customers for

at least as many years to come.

“We had a very hard look at

our options after the quake –

staying in Christchurch was

clearly the best choice for the

business,” he said.

Skellerup chief executive

David Mair said he is confident

the factory will be a platform for

future growth.

“People said we should move

to China, that didn’t actually

stack up. So the great thing

about this is there is a really

good future here in Christchurch.

Judge writes children’s book

From the

courtroom

to the

classroom

• By Bridget Rutherford

A CHRISTCHURCH judge

and author visited St Martins

Primary School to share his first

book with them.

Hunstbury resident Judge

Rob Murfitt went to the school

recently to read Claire and the

Weka.

He said it was a special place

to share the book because his

children went to the school and

he used to be on the board of

trustees.

It is Judge Murfitt’s job to try

and see the world through the

eyes of children. He has been a

judge for more than 10 years,

mostly working in the Family

Court.

Before that, he represented

children in family disputes.

The book has been published

under the name Robbie James –

Judge Murfitt’s given names. It is

about a young girl who gets her

favourite teddy stolen by a weka.

She enlists the help of a boy to

CHANGE: Judge Rob Murfitt with his new children’s book, Claire and the Weka. (Inset) He read

the book to St Martins Primary School pupils recently.

get it back.

Judge Murfitt said the book,

which is illustrated by Sunset,

was a true story about his

daughter, Claire, from a family

holiday in the Marlborough

Sounds about 30 years ago.

“There’s little lessons about

helping other people and being

grateful.”

He said it was inspired by his

granddaughter Eva, who loved

hearing the story so much, he

thought others might too.

Judge Murfitt said writing the

book helped him with his day job.

“In a sense, it helps to keep you

able to see the world through

children’s eyes,” he said.

“When we’re dealing with

disputes about parenting, the law

says that we have to look at the

welfare of the children.

“It’s the child’s rights, it’s the

child’s needs that come first and

so I suppose in the daily routine

of dealing with disputes, you do

get used to doing that.”

It also helped him keep a good

balance in life, he said.

“Whether it’s in the Family

Court or the criminal court,

you’re dealing with people in

crisis almost all the time, so

the uncomplicated innocence

of writing children’s books

is a really nice contrast with

that.”

Although Judge Murfitt spends

most of his time in Family

Court, he also does a share

of the criminal jurisdiction –

and has been known to use a

more personalised approach to

sentencing when appropriate.

Back in 2007, a 17-year-old

appeared before him in the

Hawera District Court on

a disorderly behaviour charge.

“He was a young man who was

heading off the rails but he was

waiting to join the army. A conviction

was going to delay him

for three months. The army was

just what he needed and a delay

was not going to help anyone.”

So Judge Murfitt sent him on

a run accompanied by police – if

he could do it in under an hour,

he would be discharged.

“The court was in uproar

cheering him on.”

Turns out his parents were

marathon runners, he said, and

sure enough he made it and was

discharged without conviction.

“I know that he’s done really

well since then. He served

overseas, settled down and he’s

living a good, pre-social life.

“The whole drive of sentencing

is to (a) keep the public

protected, but (b) to reduce the

offender’s risk of re-offending

and returning to court. Getting

particular young men on track is

best for the community.”

West Spreydon School pupils have been treated to musical classes with

help from an orchestra. Four members of the Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra spent a week working with pupils and teaching them how to write

compositions and performances. Musicians Cathy Irons, Jennifer Johnson,

Pablo Ruiz Henao and Helen Webby taught the pupils about different

School’s fate up to bishop

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE FUTURE of Marian

College will not be decided

until a new Catholic Bishop of

Christchurch is appointed.

The diocese has been looking

at permanent options to rebuild

the school after being forced

from its North Pde site following

the February 2011 earthquake.

However, none have been set

in stone.

In a letter to the school, administrator

of the diocese Reverend

Rick Loughnan said the

decision would be deferred until

a new bishop was appointed and

further investigations were carried

out.

“We must be 100 per cent sure

of our reasoning when the final

decision is made and, with a new

bishop soon to be appointed, it

would seem appropriate for him,

with our guidance, to have input

into this final decision,” the letter

said.

STAR STUDENT: Ella

Wells was awarded the

Barrington Kip McGrath

star of the month for her

hard work. Her tutors said

she is self-motivated and

works well independently

to complete her class work

and homework. They said

she has made excellent

progress in English and is a

pleasure to teach because

of her kind personality and

her willingness to work hard.

Marian principal Mary-Lou

Davidson said the school was in

good heart while it waited to see

where it would be rebuilt.

“It’s an important decision.

We want one that has the best

outcome for the school.”

Last year, the diocese decided

the school would not return

to its North Pde site because it

remained at risk of liquefaction

induced subsidence and lateral

spreading.

The Bishop of Christchurch is

the proprietor of the school.

Bishop Barry Jones initiated

the process of deciding where

the school would be rebuilt.

However, he passed away in

February.

A diocese spokeswoman said

there was no time frame for

when a new bishop would be

appointed and it was highly

confidential.

“It’s a highly consultative process,

with both lay and clergy to

find a suitable candidate.”

LEARNERS: During the week-long workshop pupils learnt to play many instruments.

SOUND:

Pupils

learnt how

to use their

bodies

to create

percussion.

LITTLE

GARDENERS:

Beckenham

School’s

gardening group

have been getting

their hands

dirty creating a

vegetable garden.

Over the next

couple of weeks,

the pupils will

continue working

on the gardens

by building them

up and making a

scarecrow.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | NOVEMBER 2016

EQC pays $495 million in the past year to

settle Canterbury claims

EQC Chief Executive Ian Simpson

The Earthquake Commission paid

out nearly half a billion dollars to

settle claims in Canterbury in the

year to 30 June 2016, its recently

released annual report shows.

The annual report includes lots of detail

about the work EQC has been carrying

out in Canterbury in the past year.

Figures in the report show that in the

2015/16 financial year, EQC paid out

$495 million in claims for the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquake sequence.

This total was made up of $441 million

for residential building claims (both for

cash settlements and managed repairs),

$46 million for residential land claims

and $8 million for contents claims.

IN THE

FINANCIAL YEAR

TO

30 JUNE 2016 EQC PAID OUT

$495 MILLION

MADE UP OF $441 MILLION

FOR RESIDENTIAL BUILDING CLAIMS,

$46 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL

LAND CLAIMS AND $8 MILLION

FOR CONTENTS CLAIMS.

EQC has now spent $9.4 billion

(including claim handling expenses,

excluding GST) in its response to the

2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.

This sum has been financed from the

Natural Disaster Fund and by the

reinsurance cover EQC had negotiated

prior to the earthquakes.

EQC recovered about $444 million

of the cost of Canterbury claims,

largely from international reinsurers,

in 2015/16.

EQC also paid out $25 million for claims

other than those from the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquakes. This includes

$4.7 million for claims from the

February 2016 earthquakes.

AT 30 JUNE 2016,

EQC HAD

COMPLETED

REPAIRS

ON MORE THAN 67,000 HOMES,

SETTLED 187,000 CONTENTS

CLAIMS, COMPLETED CLAIMS

FOR LAND DAMAGE TO

66,000 PROPERTIES.

In Canterbury, as at 30 June 2016, EQC

had completed repairs on more than

67,000 homes, settled 187,000

contents claims and completed claims

for land damage to 66,000 properties.

“By the end of the year we aim to

have cash settled the more than

14,000 claims from the February 2016

earthquakes,” says Chief Executive

Ian Simpson.

Mr Simpson reaffirmed EQC’s ongoing

commitment to Canterbury in 2017.

“In the upcoming year, EQC will

continue to be present in Canterbury

resolving remedial requests on

properties where we have managed a

repair. There is also a range of

administrative and financial tasks to be

completed.”

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016,

EQC HAD PAID OUT

$9.4 BILLION

IN RESPONSE TO THE 2010-2011

CANTERBURY EARTHQUAKES.

THIS MONEY CAME FROM THE

NATURAL DISASTER FUND

AND REINSURANCE.

Mr Simpson says that EQC has adequate

funds to continue to operate and to meet

its financial obligations and settle claims.

“There is always a high level of

uncertainty when it comes to settling

claims. For instance with home repairs,

the true extent of damage may only

become clear once repairs begin and

tradies start ripping off weatherboards

or lifting floorboards.

IN ADDITION,

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016

EQC HAD PAID OUT

$4.7 MILLION

FOR CLAIMS ARISING FROM THE

FEBRUARY 2016 EARTHQUAKES

IN CANTERBURY.

“Because of this uncertainty, we have

built a margin into our estimates of what

the Canterbury claims will cost.

“In the event that we did need to use all

of this margin, the Crown has confirmed

in writing that it will meet its obligations

under the Earthquake Commission Act to

ensure that EQC can meet all its liabilities

as they fall due,” Mr Simpson says.

The EQC Annual Report shows that EQC

received about $280 million in premiums

and spent $210 million on expenses,

excluding claims payments and claims

handling expenses for the 2010-2011

Canterbury earthquake sequence.

“Our largest expense was the $150

million in premiums for reinsurance,

which currently provides New Zealand

with access to $4.69 billion in cover

for natural disasters, once the cost of

these events exceeds the deductible,”

Mr Simpson says.

A copy of the EQC Annual Report

2015/16 can be downloaded from the

EQC website.

Canterbury students

head to Chile for

earthquake conference

Five engineering students from University of Canterbury will be

attending the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering

(16WCEE) in Chile this January thanks to sponsorship from EQC and

the NZ Society for Earthquake Engineers (NZSEE).

EQC’s Research Strategy and Investment Manager Richard Smith says the

sponsorship goes partway to supporting students and practitioners to

attend the conference, which is the preeminent gathering of engineers

involved in seismic resistant design.

“WCEE is to earthquake engineers what the Olympics are to sport. This

opportunity gives these students exposure to ideas and knowledge from

around the globe as well as the chance to forge international connections

that will be of value to their research and to New Zealand.

“EQC plays an important role in funding and facilitating research about

natural hazard risk. Part of that is making sure we have researchers within

New Zealand who have the capability to undertake that research.”

Mechanical engineering PhD student Jarrod Cook says the chance to

attend 16WCEE will be invaluable. “I’m exploring ways a ratcheting,

tension-only device can reduce the motion experienced by buildings

during an earthquake, and therefore limit the damage and impact to

people as well as enabling buildings to stay open after the event. WCEE is

the premier conference in earthquake engineering so this is a great way

to share my ideas, get critical feedback and see what others are doing.”

WCEE is held every four years and provides attendees with the

opportunity for a global exchange of knowledge, ideas, research

results and practical experience. As well as students from Canterbury,

EQC and NZSEE are jointly sponsoring the attendance of five students

from Auckland University and four industry representatives from across

New Zealand.

From left to right: Jarrod Cook, Pavan Aninthaneni and Amir Malek are three of

five University of Canterbury students heading to Chile for the World Conference

on Earthquake Engineering this January.

Bowling in Beckenham for 100 years

Barry

Chapman

looks at

Beckenham

Bowling

Club’s

upcoming centenary

ROLL OUT the band and raise

the flag, Beckenham Bowling

Club is celebrating 100 years of

giving enjoyment to the many

hundreds of players who have

taken part in the club’s activities

over that time.

There will not be a message

from the queen, but such an

achievement is nonetheless one

that will be celebrated with pride

by past and present members

alike in the coming weeks, with

past members attending from

around New Zealand and Australia.

The club was established

on part of the old Heathcote

(Opawaho as it was previously

known) River bed, which had

become a rubbish dump. On

November 7, 1916, a meeting of

interested parties was called by

Ernie Chegwin, with the idea of

establishing a lawn bowls club.

Things moved very quickly. A

committee was set up to establish

the club and begin negotiations

with the council to obtain

the use of the derelict ground.

By March 1917, the green was

prepared and sown with the

first bowls being rolled up in

the following October. A magnificent

feat, all accomplished by

volunteer labour. And the fact

that this took place in the middle

of World War 1 made it all the

more impressive.

The club grew over the following

years and saw the establishment

of the first women’s

bowling club in Christchurch in

October 1931. It became obvious

that the club was outgrowing

its facilities and, in April 1945,

a second green was established

at the club’s present site in

Waimea Tce. Then followed a

winter green of compacted soil

covered with sawdust that saw

hardy players in their overcoats

playing the sport they loved in

the middle of winter. With two

sites, it required doubling up on

equipment and this, along with

green problems, led to the laying

of a second green on the new

site, which saw the club shift in

full in June 1976 and the original

site was reverted back to the city

council.

The volunteer aspect which

saw the club established continued

as the club grew. This was

tested to the upmost when, in

1960, a decision was made to

replace the old army hut that

was the club pavilion with a new

building that incorporated a

three rink indoor surface – one

of the first at that time. This was

a huge undertaking for mainly

retired members who offered

their skills to complete this in

only 10 months. The building

has seen additions and renovations

since, but has served the

club well right up to today’s requirements.

It also came through

the earthquakes with only minor

damage and the club was able

to continue using it apart from

when the repairs took place.

As with all clubs, we have

seen some real characters in our

ranks who are still talked about

today. We have also had some

top players in our membership

over the years, including

New Zealand and Canterbury

representatives. Our centre title

lists are very impressive for a

club that has never featured in

the “top clubs” of Christchurch.

We have undoubtedly made our

mark both on and off the green.

With sporting clubs’ facing

uncertain futures, due to

seven-day trading, both partners

working and the large amount

of other attractions that take up

today’s recreation time, the club

has looked to ensure we move

with the times by setting up an

administration to operate in a

professional manner.

This has proved beneficial

for our members and assisted

us in linking to the local community

through such things as

club plans, operational plans

and community bowls for

non-players, known as Crack

PLAYERS: Beckenham Bowling Club will celebrate its centenary next year.

A Jack Bowls. Many of these

systems have been adopted by

other bowling clubs around the

country.

All of this contributed to the

club earning titles like club of

the year and administrator of the

year for New Zealand. The club

is very proud of achieving these

and other awards, including

Bowls New Zealand and Sport

Canterbury gold awards.

Today, as we look back over the

last 100 years and congratulate

ourselves on our achievements,

we are also very mindful of

looking to the future and

providing what sports people

and the local community want.

Doing so allows the club to look

positively towards the next 25

years.

As a club, we welcome the local

community to make use of these

first-class facilities. We provide a

social and friendly environment

for all people, from families to

school-aged children to those in

their later years who are looking

for a way to make friends and

enjoy the sport at whatever level

they desire.

Dancer earns new shoes

BALLET DANCER Ayiana

Lo-Fo-Wong missed out on a

scholarship – but a judge was so

impressed with her performance

she decided to pay for her pointe

shoes for a year.

The 14-year-old, of

Beckenham, applied for

the People’s Choice AMP

Scholarship recently in the hope

of covering some costs for her

ballet lessons, costumes and

shoes.

Ayiana is a full-time

Canterbury Ballet student. She

made it into the top five in the

North Canterbury region, but

when she missed out on the

scholarship, one of the judges,

Dorothy McLennan, offered

to pay for her ballet shoes for a

year.

“I was impressed with the

discipline, dedication and

confidence shown by Ayiana, so

I really wanted to help her cover

some of the many costs involved

in pursuing her ballet career,”

Ms McLennan said.

For Ayiana, this was a big

boost to her confidence and will

help equip her for an audition

video for the New York-based

American Ballet Theatre, as

part of its summer school

programme.

“It makes me feel people care

about my passion and support

ACHIEVERS

DANCER: Ayiana goes through, roughly, four pairs of pointe

shoes a year, practising ballet up to five days a week on top of

performing in shows.

me,” she said.

Ayiana’s mum Jaimita de

Jongh said her daughter’s ballet

shoes cost $125 a pair. And she

goes through roughly four pairs

a year.

“I was really proud of her

for doing this on her own. We

supported her but she did the

interview and impressed them

herself,” Ms de Jongh said.

Ayiana has been dancing for

Canterbury Ballet since she was

four-and-a-half, and after her

mother took her to see Southern

Ballet perform The Snow Queen

when she was three-years-old.

“We thought it was just a

phase, but she kept asking and

asking for us to take her to ballet

lessons, so eventually we did.

Our lives revolve around ballet”

Ms de Jongh said.

The next step for Ayiana is

to play the lead role of Aurora

in Canterbury Ballet’s

production of Sleeping Beauty

next month.

“In that case, we’ll have to do

some serious fundraising.”

Standout league

Coach of the Year award.

The club also had reason for

celebration last week. Keas and

Bulls centre Matt Sauni has

Concepts provide painless treatment. Plus, the personal

touch they offer by taking time to go over all your

treatment options and associated costs means those who

fear a dental surgery will be immediately put at ease.

Smile Concepts is proud of its patient service. Their

knowledgeable staff members use safe and proven

procedures, the latest technology, materials and

philosophies to enhance your teeth and smile. They also

actively engage with their customers and take regular

feedback. For example, in recent months, customers

complained about earthquake-related shaking at the

surgery. Taking these complaints seriously, they have

now moved to their newly renovated premises with

new repelling of the foundations at 104 Colombo Street,

Sydenham, where ample parking is available and the bus

stop is close by.

Smile Concepts welcomes customers from across

Canterbury, and with the variety of services offered as well

as a compassionate, patient-centered approach, it is well

worth driving the extra mile.

They provide dental care services for children and

adolescents with special needs, and sedation dentistry so

patients can undergo treatment without anxiety. General

dentistry services include regular checkups, fillings,

crowns, dentures, root treatment and extractions. With

their emphasis on preventative dentistry, they recommend

regular checkups to eliminate any major problems

occurring.

No longer should smiles have gaps where teeth used to

be. Implants, veneers and bridges can be crafted and fitted

so they look natural, are long-lasting and a perfect match.

They also have a dental hygienist, who will help to keep

gums healthy and advise on healthy oral habits.

Some food, drink and medicines can stain our teeth

over time and teeth whitening has become one of the

most sought-after cosmetic dental procedures today. Smile

Concepts offers the Zoom whitening system, which is

currently one of the most powerful, effective and safest

methods available on the market.

Perhaps the one day in our lives when our smile means

the most is our wedding day. This innovative dental

practice offers wedding packages individually tailored to

your needs to make sure your wedding photographs do

you justice. As a special gift to brides and grooms, Smile

Concepts will create a wedding package at a special price.

Their generosity doesn’t stop with their customers. Smile

Concepts is proud to work with the local community,

supporting initiatives such as Child Safety Awareness

Programmes, the Special Children’s Christmas Party

and is a regular donor to the University of Canterbury

Foundation.

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.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

An exciting career

in Automotive

Southern Institute of Technology

(SIT) graduate Janaka Liyanapathirana’s

childhood love of cars has seen him excel

to an exciting career in Automotive.

Janaka completed the Certificate in

Automotive Engineering in Christchurch

in October and, after being recognised for

his overall outstanding efforts throughout

the course, has graduated with a prized

welding helmet gifted by BOC.

“I was really surprised about the award,

it was so unexpected,” he said.

Coming to New Zealand to pursue his

dream of becoming a mechanic, Janaka

said he tried different automotive courses

around the country but only found the

right course for him at SIT.

“I was so lucky to find the right place, the

right course and the right tutors [at SIT],

from all of the other places where I tried

within NZ,”

“The best opportunity the course gave

me was the live practical experience and

institutions with proper techniques from

the tutors who are qualified and have long

term experience in the same trade.”

Janaka said he has already received an

opportunity to enter the workforce and

start his career.

“I think I have followed the right track,

by the time I finished I got a job offer from

the biggest car company in Christchurch,

so I have already planned to join them and

enjoy working with what I have studied.”

For any enquires phone 349 3645 or call

in and see us at 60 Waterloo Road.

Help your child grow

in confidence

Life skills programme for children.

Do your children lack self-confidence, or

perhaps have so much energy that they need

an outlet for it? Development through drama

is the ideal approach to teach confidence

and channel youthful energy while building

self-esteem.

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy has

been in New Zealand for 32 years. This highly

regarded worldwide programme helps

students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their potential by

acting confidently and speaking clearly. This

unique, self-development programme helps

achieve invaluable life skills. The confident,

articulate child makes friends easily, accepts

challenges and new directions. Confident

children become well-rounded adults.

Our fully qualified teachers are trained

in the Helen O’Grady Drama system,

they ensure each child is encouraged

and valued in a warm, positive learning

environment. Lessons stimulate and

motivate students without the exam or

peer group pressure. Weekly class activities

include speech training, creative movement

and improvisation. Our Youth Theatre

programme encourages the development of

leadership and organisational skills. Three

terms of the year cover the self-development

programme and in the fourth term all

students prepare a performance for parents

and friends. We also offer Trinity College

London examinations as an option for

those who wish to pursue an international

qualification.

Our safe structured learning environment

values student individuality and encourages

team building. Most importantly its great

fun too!
