Heathcote on the wild side

Like many, photographer Sarah Webber was cooped

up at the weekend as the rain continued to come

down. So she decided to have a little photo-shopping

fun as the Heathcote River flexed its muscles yet

again. •More photos, pages 4 and 5

Halswell

school

ahead of

schedule

A NEW school in Halswell is set to

open three years ahead of schedule

due to rapid growth in the area.

Education Minister Nikki Kaye

said the $11 million Halswell West

Primary School would open in 2019,

with construction beginning in early

2018.

The new school will be situated

on the corner of Richmond and Killarney

Aves, near the new residential

subdivision of Knights Stream Park,

between Prebbleton and Oaklands.

“The Halswell area is experiencing

rapid growth, and we’ve responded

to that by bringing forward the

planned date for Halswell West Primary

School to ensure children will

be able to attend a local school,” Ms

Kaye said.

The new school, which is part of

the Christchurch School Rebuild

programme, was originally scheduled

to open in 2022.

It will cater for children in years 1

to 8 and will initially have space for

450 students, with the capacity to

expand up to 700.

“There will be multiple stages to

the build, with the second stage beginning

when roll projections show

that more spaces are required,” Ms

Kaye said.

TOP MARKS to Sarah Webber

for her great out of the box

flooding photos.

It was a dismal time for many

as the Heathcote flexed its

muscle yet again and spilled its

contents into properties.

But Sarah’s photos (see pages

1, 4, 5) at least put a lighter spin

on what was a very nasty event

for many.

We put the photos on Rise Up

Christchurch and our website

star.kiwi and no doubt they were

shared around the world.

So thanks for letting us have

them Sarah!

Also, top marks to school

teacher Ryan Pearce who picked

up a silver at the recent waka

ama world champs.

There’s an interesting back

story to Ryan, and Ferrymead

Rotary member Barbara Crooks

explains all on page 6.

Panels may be removed

RSA claims

council

wasted

$25,000

• By Gabrielle Stuart

CONTROVERSIAL $25,000

glass graffiti protection panels

around the New Brighton War

Memorial may be removed,

sparking calls they have been a

waste of money.

The panels

were installed

around the

memorial last

month, but were

criticised by the

New Brighton

RSA and by

Kim Money

people in the

community who

said they were

“horribly ugly”.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board is now

considering taking them down

and using lighting, security

landscaping to discourage

vandalism instead.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money has met with New

Brighton RSA representatives to

discuss the idea.

Ms Money said the options

included removing the low walls

your one stop shop!

in the area to open it to the

street, making it less attractive

to vandals.

But Ms Money said there was

no funding currently set aside

for the work, and having it

approved could take months.

New Brighton RSA executive

We welcome you to come along and have a look

manager Garry House said that

was not good enough.

He said the city council had

wasted money on the panels

without properly consulting the

community.

“If you’ve blown the money on

doing something stupid, that’s

no excuse. You’ve just got to find

the money somewhere else,” he

said.

The memorial was vandalised

in 2015, and he said the idea

of protective panels had been

briefly mentioned then, but

there had been no discussion of

it since.

“I understand the council was

trying to do the right thing by

protecting the cenotaph, so I

applaud them for that, but they

went about it very badly,” he

said.

He said the association would

be happy to see the panels left

up as a temporary measure, but

only for a few months.

But Ms Money said the

plan was likely to take some

time to approve, as it would

need to be put to both city

council staff and Development

Christchurch Ltd, the city

council subsidiary responsible

for revitalising the New

Brighton foreshore.

The flood waters

but one

photographer

Sarah Webber has managed

to spread a bit of chuckle

through her imaginative

photographs

A stampeding elephant, churning

up water as it heads for safety,

a bear clutching a fish in its mouth

and an orca leaping through the

streets of Beckenham are part of

an apparent exodus of animals

from the suburb.

Even old Nessie, the Loch Ness

Monster, the legendary water

creature from Scotland, makes an

appearance.

Ms Webber said she was stuck

inside during the floods and

wanted to do something creative

and a bit tongue-in-cheek.

She started with Nessie and

posted it on Facebook. The photo

was such a hit that she started

getting requests for particular

animals.

“I was just rushing to get them

done – it is not even good photoshopping,”

she said.

Rotary helps teacher succeed on water

Ferrymead Rotarians had a

strong inkling they were on

to a good thing when Ryan

Pearce approached them for

support to get to the waka

ama (outrigger canoeing)

world championships. Club

member Barbara Crooks

writes about how it worked

out

THE 34-year-old South

Brighton School teacher

was part of a para-six which

paddled to a silver medal at the

World Distance Waka Ama

Championships in Tahiti a

couple of weeks ago.

Pearce, who has used a brace

on his right leg since spinal

surgery eight years ago, had been

paddling for just 12 months

before making the New Zealand

team.

To get to Tahiti he – and each

of his fellow paddlers –had to

raise $4000 in three months

since the team was named in

March.

His personal and professional

attributes impressed Ferrymead

Rotary members so much they

readily agreed. And while they

thought their contribution

modest, Ryan pointed out that

they had paid his Christchurch

DETERMINED: Ryan Pearce (front) won a silver medal at the World Distance Waka Ama

Championships in Tahiti. ​

to Auckland airfare – without

which he wouldn’t have made

the plane to Tahiti.

After his selection was

confirmed in March, he had to

fund a medical examination, and

flights, food and accommodation

for three training camps (in

Napier, Auckland and Tauranga)

and the world champs in Tahiti.

As he says, there are no free

rides for truly amateur sports in

New Zealand.

His waka success further

reflected Pearce’s resolve since

complications with a 2009

operation to remove a varicose

vein on his spinal cord left him

with no feeling from the waist

down. A month later, thanks

to his intensive rehabilitation

efforts, he was walking with the

help of a stick on his wedding

day.

Two years later, the remnant

of the vein forced another

operation, six weeks in hospital,

and back to work on physio in

a wheelchair. The next year,

he tackled the 2.8km harbour

crossing swim in Auckland,

dragging himself across almost

entirely with his arms. He has

done four more distance swims

since.

But he believes he trained

harder for waka than his swims

because he didn’t want to let his

mates down. He’s also quick to

point out that, while one of the

seven paddlers did not get a start

in Tahiti, the performance was

very much a team effort.

Pearce sees “paddling in

some capacity” as very much a

part of his immediate sporting

future. He believes he’s best

suited to longer distances, which

opens the way for him to bring

his swimming, paddling and

perhaps other endurance talents

together.

Addington retirement village

with cafe, creche and animals

A RETIREMENT village being

built in Addington will have a

public cafe, creche, community

centre, health hub and even

animals.

Park Lane Retirement Village

will feature Living Well – a

new concept designed to create

community connections and

empower retirees.

Arvida Group chief executive

Bill McDonald said Living Well

would be a public community

precinct.

“Living Well Park Lane will

include a community centre for

both the public and residents,

complete with a cafe that sources

produce from the village’s communal

gardens, a community

creche, a health club and animals

including chickens and lambs,”

Mr McDonald said.

“Traditionally retirement

villages are a gated community

– here the community is warmly

welcomed to be part of life at

Park Lane.”

Mr McDonald said Christchurch

was the perfect place to

launch Living Well because of

the innovative developments

happening with the rebuild.

He hoped to roll it out across

other Arvida retirement villages,

like when it is complete.

he said.

Park Lane would use solar

energy to power the main buildings,

and would also offer electric

cars for residents to use.

Apartments at the new Park

Lane Retirement Village are now

on sale, and the majority are

expected to be completed and

ready for tenants in March.

A GROUP of Riccarton

business women raised more

than $5000 for family violence

support group Aviva.

The Riccarton Venus

Businesswomen’s Networking

Group held a fundraiser on

July 2 with the proceeds going

directly to Aviva families.

“It’s amazing to see what you

can achieve when you have

businesswomen supporting

and encouraging each other

and creating these kinds of collaborations,

and a perfect fit in

giving back to the community,”

regional South Island Venus

manager Maree Bryant said.

The group fundraised by selling

Safelets, a bracelet designed

to help vulnerable people feel

safe.

Safelet has just been launched

in New Zealand by Sharron

Jones.

After an accident while living

alone, she searched for a personal

safety option for herself and

on discovering Safelet wanted to

share the benefits of the product

with the rest of New Zealand.

SUPPORT: (From left)

– Sharon Hunt, Nicola

Woodward, Sharon

McKeeman, Sharron

Jones, Julie McCloy

and Maree Bryant and

Diane Moore (front). ​

$5000 raised for Aviva

Safelet is an “on the go”

personal safety alarm bracelet

that allows the wearer to be connected

and protected by friends

and family.

With the push of a button

they can alert their guardians

and emergency services to their

whereabouts and that they need

help.

When the lucky winner of a

Safelet, Diane Moore decided to

regift it back to Aviva it really

was a celebration of women

wanting to give back.

Aviva helps individuals and

families to become – and stay –

free of violence.

They work with children,

women, and men, giving each

person the support they need,

when they

need it, to become safe

and live free of the effects of

family and sexual

violence.

Aviva Families is delighted to

receive the support to be able to

offer their vulnerable families

this additional tool to help keep

them safe.

to the concepts of community and

inclusion which came through strongly

in Architectus's submission.

In Term 2, 2019 Linwood College will

shift off-site for the duration of our

rebuild to what will then be the former

Avonside Girls’ High site. The site will

be available as AGHS (and Shirley BHS)

will be on their new site, formerly QE2

Park. This is a very good step for us,

for while it has its own processes to

work through, there are three major

positives:

1. LC students and staff will not

experience the difficult period of rebuild

disruption. The time and energy

that otherwise would have gone to

ensuring learning was not affected

can now be used more positively.

2. The LC demolition and building

processes start with an unoccupied

site and so can operate in a single

stage. This means that a year

comes off the rebuild timeline so the

timeline we are looking at now is 18

months to two years.

3. With this considerable timesaving

and there being no need

for relocatables to shift us around

in, there is a financial saving of

approximately $1 million. This money

does not leave the budget so is used

to enhance what we will be getting.

The Ministry of Education will ensure

that LC has all the support that we

need during our temporary relocation,

including a transport plan for our

students to the new site. We will be

exploring bussing options to get our

students there. The MoE appoints

a relocation manager and employs

specialist movers skilled at shifting a

school, everything from basketballs to

hydrochloric acid.

The AGHS site is safe. The buildings

are mainly relocatable classrooms.

AGHS has operated very successfully

in them with a full academic and

social curriculum. About half of the

relocatables were brought in postearthquake

so they are modern and

warm. In fact, they are of better quality

than our present LC classrooms.

The site is close to us. I have timed my

last two drives there: 3 min 50 sec and

4 min 10 sec, just 2.2 kilometres from

the LC front gate to the AGHS front

gate.

While the rebuild of Linwood College is

well overdue, we are also aware that

the demolition of the old school will

bring mixed feelings for some. And

this makes sense as a school’s physical

fabric contains many memories and

key moments in people’s lives. How

we close and honour this chapter in our

school’s history, while we open another,

is important to us and already is being

given due attention.

Nga mihi nui to our community as the

positive activity of the year continues. I

am always keen to meet people if any

member of the community wishes to

talk to me about anything. My door is

open.

The moon is high and all is quiet.

Excitement is rising. The night is still.

This night, 2nd August will be the

opening night of Linwood College’s

2017 major production ‘Wolfstock’.

This is a maverick musical written by

Mary McMahan with music by Donald

Woodward.

A ‘Grease’ ‘Teenwolf’ mash-up with

eccentric characters, great one-liners

and the odd motor bike - this fun story

along with the compulsory dancing and

singing has all the makings for a fun,

family-friendly show.

The new Performing Arts learning

team of Sam Boyce da Cruz and

Ben Russell are bringing life back

to the Linwood College productions

after a hiatus. The cast of this year’s

production celebrates everything that

is great about being part of a Year

7 - 13 school with cast and musicians

involved spanning across all age

groups, collaborating and working

together to present this show.

Community Connections

Students from Linwood North

Primary School visited during Linwood

College’s Taster Afternoon this month.

They were treated to a scene from the

upcoming Linwood College musical

WOLFSTOCK as well as engaging

science experiments.

Linwood College • Phone: 982-0100 • Email: office@linwoodcollege.school.nz • www.linwoodcollege.school.nz

The show will have a three night run

from 1 - 3 August. Tickets will be

available at the College’s Payment

Office from Term 3. We look forward to

seeing you there.

Master Plumbers,

Whitehead Plumbing

& Gas Limited

Guarantee Results

Whitehead Plumbing & Gas Ltd is a

longstanding Plumbing, Gasfitting and

Drainlaying company that is celebrating

its 38th birthday this year. That’s a long

time working for local Christchurch and

Canterbury home owners and businesses.

Over the years Mark Whitehead has

built a loyal following of domestic and

commercial customers. The business began

in 1979 with one staff member and grew

steadily until Feb 2011 when the devastating

Christchurch earthquakes caused a surge

in demand for a wide range of plumbing,

gasfitting and drainlaying repair work.

Mark says that the earthquake put a huge

demand on the business to service peoples

needs and the business grew rapidly to

meet those needs. He said that all their staff

worked exceptionally hard during this time

to get water and drainage working again

for many people. A lot of households had

damage to their hot water cylinders and

Whitehead’s were replacing around 20

cylinders per week.

The business has continued to grow

steadily since then as the rebuild gained

momentum, with Whiteheads Plumbing

and Gas Ltd being the preferred Plumbing,

Gasfitting and Drainlaying company for

many builders of high spec architecturally

designed homes. The company has also

branched out into light commercial work

including new schools, shopping centres

and retirement villages.

Mark says that although the rebuild work

on the flat is coming to an end they still

have many rebuilds and major repair jobs

to do for architecturally designed houses.

A lot of these new builds are on hill sites

where there are challenges with access and

engineering requirements.

Whitehead’s are specialists in those

difficult jobs whether it be plumbing, gas

or drainage work. They have key staff who

have been in the industry for a lot of years

and their combined knowledge has given

the business the opportunity to tackle those

difficult jobs. Mark says that his team works

closely with the main contractor on every

project to see that the work progresses

smoothly.

Mark Whitehead is passionate about the

Plumbing, Gas and Drainlaying industry

and this is evident in his involvement in and

commitment

to the PGD Board, which is the industry’s

regulatory body, Skills, the training

organisation, Master Plumbers, Gasfitters

and Drainlayers and other plumbing

related organisations over the years.

The business has a philosophy of training

young people and over the years they have

trained in excess of 40 apprentices. Mark

says that the industry’s future is in training

the right people. The future is in good

hands with Whitehead Plumbing & Gas

Ltd

At Whitehead Plumbing and Gas the staff

take pride in exceptional customer service

and excellent workmanship.

At Whitehead Plumbing & Gas Ltd

we have a great team of loyal staff

offering a diverse range of skills.

Serving Canterbury for over 35

years, we do everything from

domestic maintenance to new

homes and commercial buildings.

Lindisfarne nursery school

Lindisfarne opened in 1987 with the aim of

providing parents and families with a nursery

school which respects their individual needs

and aspirations. We provide full time, part

time and casual enrolment opportunities for

your child, so that you can organise a schedule

which suits your requirements.

The teachers provide learning experiences

tailored to individual children’s needs and

interests, and the programme promotes

independent thinking and skill development.

Our aim is to have happy, settled, confident

children, who enjoy an environment which

fosters a love of learning, and respect for all

people.

We are proud of our multi-national

community and the opportunities this

provides for both teachers and children.

Regular parent and whanau activities are

organised throughout the year, and we place

an emphasis on a close liaison between home

and nursery school, which is vital to any child’s

success and progress.

We do hope you find our website helpful

(www.lindisfarnenursery.school.nz) but

encourage you to visit the nursery school

for a full information booklet. We will be

delighted to meet you and your child, and

leaves each day feeling secure and loved in

their special environment.

At Marshlands Nest they create a most

positive environment for children so they can

learn through all experiences and interactions

but most importantly through play.

This have a mixed licence which means

children of different ages play and interact with

each other. It allows siblings to be together

and gives solo children a chance to be part of

a larger family. It also means children do not

need to transition between rooms so can stay

with the same teachers and children.

Marshlands Nest does recognize the need

for age specific learning and a portion of each

day is spent in ‘nest times” learning with

others of the same age.

The team at Marshland Nest would love to

have you as part of their family, please feel

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in

Sydenham sees clients with a

range of symptoms but many

of their middle-aged and senior

clients visit complaining of pain in one or

both hips.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back

muscle could also be the cause, as shown in

the image.

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old

client with severe arthritis who walked with

a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair,

I cannot put any weight through my right

leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”.

“Within 4 treatments, she was walking with

her stick but without the severe pain,” says

Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors

that made her muscles spasm but the other

was that older people move less and the

flexed position the hip is in when we sit is

particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy

with the fact that although the client was 89

and could have been “given up on” or told to

live with the pain, she made a difference to

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise program

designed to mobilize and stretch the hip,

strengthen the important core muscles and

increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches

the hip in all directions whilst the client is

able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for

older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If

severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but

that is often more affordable and, for older

patients, better tolerated than surgery. In

very few treatments the client will know if

it is going to work for them or not, without

financial commitment.

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

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