[Edition datE] 3 SELWYN TIMES Tuesday July 19 2016 35 CONTINUING EDUCATION Christchurch School of Music the ChriStChurCh School of Music is a family-oriented community aimed at providing quality music education in and around Christchurch. in 2015 CSM celebrated 60 years of teaching children to love and appreciate music so why not join us and become a part of the next 60 years? CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong focus on community. On a Saturday morning the whole family can find something to suit. Preschool children can start their musical journey by joining in our experiential “take Orff with Music” while older children and adults may opt for group or individual lessons on a specific instrument (including voice). Those who already play are welcome to join in one of the great ensembles which all take part in regular concerts including Saturday soirees and the popular annual Showcase Concert. Recitals where individuals can perform are also held regularly. CSM also provides a comprehensive music education to participating primary schools via its Outreach programmes. With programmes offered in band, strings, recorder and ukulele in a wide range of Christchurch schools this is an area of the School, which has grown fast over the last few years. Another area that has grown rapidly over the last few years is the Late Starters programme where adults approaching retirement with more time on their hands have really enjoyed learning an instrument they never had the chance to play in their early years and join an ensemble with other like-minded adults. if Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also offers a range of weekday opportunities for learning and playing music. if affordability is an issue, CSM may be able to offer a discount through funding provided by the rata Foundation. Please contact us via our website www. csm.org.nz and let us start you on a musical journey that will bring pleasure for a lifetime. Ensuring a safe work place LeArninG FirSt aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in Australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.
