Yep, she’s a rough and tumble game

• By Gordon Findlater

CANTERBURY under-17

all-rounder Jesse Frew proved that

even those in the outfield can’t

escape the dangers of cricket.

He may not have been at threat

from a flying bat in the Big Bash

like Melbourne Renegades wicketkeeper

Peter Nevill (below), or

facing a barrage of Black Caps’

bouncers like Bangladesh batsman

Mominul Haque (right), but his

take on a somersault sure put his

body on the line.

The cricketing gods were unable

to shine on Frew, playing against

Otago at the national under-17

cricket tournament currently taking

place at Lincoln University.

Perhaps understandable considering

the game took place on Friday

the 13th.

Canterbury coach Dion Ebrahim

said Frew’s neck was fine and he

was more gutted about dropping

the catch.

Canterbury drew both of their

opening two-day matches with first

innings points going to the opposition.

The tournament wraps up on

Saturday.

Tests

show soil

no cause

for CTV

building

collapse

• By Gabrielle Stuart

“NOTHING UNTOWARD” has

been found in an excavation and

soil testing of the Canterbury

Television building foundations as

police come closer to announcing

whether criminal charges will be

laid over the collapse.

The Star has obtained a letter

police sent to the families of the

victims about the excavation and

testing – the last part of a long

criminal investigation into the

collapse which claimed 115 lives.

The experts confirmed that

there was nothing untoward

with the foundations or soil that

altered the opinion that they

had provided earlier,” Detective

Superintendent Peter Read said in

the letter.

The foundations and soil of

the CTV building and site were

examined by Beca Engineers and

Canterbury of University staff

during excavations carried out in

August this year.”

The Star has also learned families

of the victims expect to hear

the result of the investigation at a

meeting with police on February

21, the day before the sixth anniversary

of the 2011 earthquake.

Maan Alkaisi, whose wife

Maysoon Abbas died in the CTV

building, said he hoped to see

charges laid.

CRIKEY, THE years fly by.

I remember reporting on Dave

Meredith in his heyday on the

snooker table. Today (page 52)

young(ish) Star sports journalist

Gordon Findlater covers

Meredith’s ongoing sporting

journey – seniors tennis.

This weekend he aims for his

second singles title in the over-65

category at the Tennis NZ senior

national champs at the Hagley

and Cashmere tennis clubs.

Meredith is no stranger to

tennis. He won a Canterbury

under-17 singles title and a

secondary school title with

Christchurch Boys’ High School

during the 1960s.

On another sporting note,

great pix from photographer

Martin Hunter on page 1 today.

Capturing those sort of shots

is not easy; you need anticipation,

speed, pinpoint accuracy

and of course lots of skill.

I did consider another headline

for the photos: ‘Yep, she’s a

rough and fumble game’.

But it might have been a bit

tough on the young cricketer,

looks like he made a great fist of

the attempt.

At a Glance

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the city council swimming pool in the

Avon River open on January 17, 1877. It wasn’t one of the city

council’s better projects being located only a few hundred metres

downstream from the hospital’s effluent outfall. On January

18, 1894, the New Brighton Pier opened. Between January

19 and 22, 1954, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited

Christchurch, it was the first New Zealand visit by a reigning

monarch. On January 19, 1983, a tornado and hailstorm

struck the western suburbs. Damage was severe at Halswell.

On January 21, 1951, 10 people were lost when two yachts

– Husky and Argo – sank in a storm during the Wellington

to Christchurch centennial race. It was New Zealand’s worst

yachting disaster. Only one of the 22 starters finished the race.

WITHIN SPITTING DISTANCE

Christchurch’s Nicola McDonald won the national

cherry stone-spitting competition (women’s

section) with a 7.1m distance in the Old Cromwell

Historic Precinct on Saturday. First-time entrant

Dave Kowalewski, of Wyndham, claimed the

men’s title and the overall prize, spitting a cherry

stone 11.3m. Lucy Sawyer, 13, of Christchurch,

won the girls’ section (5.65m), Aidan O’Connell,

13, of Invercargill, won the boys’ section (6.8m).

The event was part of the annual Cherry Festival.

Guinness World Records says the world record is

28.51m, set by Brian “Young Gun” Krause, of the

United States, in 2004.

Lyttelton restaurant makes

world’s best fine-dining list

• By Annabelle Dick

DON’T BOTHER trying

to find a menu for Lyttelton

restaurant Roots – it doesn’t

have one.

In spite of that, it still managed

to land a placing on the

prestigious list of the world’s

1000 best eateries, La Liste.

The coveted list is a restaurant

guide compiled from

hundreds of guidebooks and

online review sites of the

world’s 1000 top restaurants.

Eight New Zealand restaurants

made the list and Roots

was the only one outside of

Auckland to make the cut.

It’s an honour for owner and

head chef, Chilean national Giulio

Sturla, who only celebrated

Roots fourth anniversary last

November.

“It’s been such a short period

of time and we’ve achieved so

much already but we’ve just

started,” he said.

“We’re so new we feel we can

do more, so it’s reinforcing that

we’re doing the right thing and

this is pushing us to do go even

further.”

Mr Sturla, who has worked

in restaurants in Mexico, the

United States, Jamaica, Ecuador,

Chile and Spain moved to

New Zealand in 2009 with his

wife Christy Martin.

The pair opened up Roots

in 2012 and created a dining

experience different to most by

removing the menus and relying

heavily on local produce.

“We wanted to do something

completely different people

haven’t seen before,” he said.

With that in mind, he started

creating fresh dishes daily out

of whatever Mother Nature had

to offer.

Nearly five years on, Mr

Sturla still relies on seasonal

vegetables and fresh fish and

meat to create his seasonal five,

eight and 12-course dinners.

“People like eating several

courses, with several colours

and textures over a longer

period of time instead of just

one big plate in one sitting,” he

explains.

“I knew people disliked a

lot of foods like seafood and

mushrooms and I wondered

how people could dislike

something that tasted so good,”

he said.

The moment you read

something on a menu, you’ll

decide whether you like it and

if you want to eat it. The moment

it’s on the plate you have

a different appreciation of what

you have. We play a little with

people’s minds to show them

that food they thought they

didn’t like can be good. Trust

me, I’m not going to serve you

bad food – I’m a chef.”

Auckland-based restaurants

The French Cafe, The Grove,

Sidart, Kazuya, Cocoro, Merediths

and Baduzzi also feature

on La Liste.

District health board job cuts article

LAST WEEK, The Star

reported the Canterbury

District Health Board may look

at job cuts this year in a bid to

balance its books.

The article said the planned

cut would take effect from July.

TOP NOSH: Giulio Sturla’s Lyttelton restaurant Roots has been named in La Liste, which

ranks the top 1000 eateries in the world.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

This was incorrect.

The Star was using information

from a Pricewaterhouse-

Coopers report regarding the

board’s finances.

But The Star mistakenly

thought the 2017 financial year

started in July and questioned

board chairman Murray Cleverley

on that basis. Mr Cleverley

said he could not rule out job

cuts but stated it was too early

to say until the board had met

to discuss the PwC report. The

board’s chief executive David

Meates emailed his staff saying:

There are no plans to cut $9

million from our personnel

budget as stated in today’s Star.

The Star apologies for the

error.

In Brief

BABY LOCKED IN CAR

Firefighters were called to help get

a baby out of a locked car parked

on Sumner’s Esplanade on Monday.

Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade

received the call at about 11.10am.

However, when firefighters arrived, the

car had been unlocked. A fire service

spokesman said it was an accident

and the baby’s father had arrived with

the spare key for the vehicle before

firefighters arrived.

ARTS CENTRE CHAIRWOMAN

Felicity Price is the new Arts Centre

Trust Board chairwoman. She has replaced

Jen Crawford. Ms Price, who is

a strategic communications contractor

and consultant, has been chairwoman

on boards of The Court Theatre,

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

and Christchurch Writers Festival.

She was made an Officer of the New

Zealand Order of Merit for services to

arts and business in 2009 and has authored

eight novels and three works of

non-fiction, including the John Britten

biography, Dare to Dream.

SIGN OF THE KIWI RETURNS

The Sign of the Kiwi will reopen on

Monday after six years. The building

at the top of Dyers Pass Rd was closed

following the September 4, 2010,

earthquake. It then suffered further

damage on February 22, 2011. Before

the building was closed, it operated as

a cafe and shop. The cafe will reopen

following $760,000 in strengthening

work. The heritage building was built

between 1916 and 1917 and has been

strengthened to 67 per cent of the new

building standard.

RAPAKI PARKING BAN STALLS

Plans to install yellow lines on Rapaki

Rd have been put on hold by the city

council. Following concerns from

residents along the road, which is the

main access to Rapaki Track, the city

council proposed banning parking

along it and part of Erewhon Tce.

While two thirds of submitters supported

the proposal, Vernon Tce residents

feared they would lose off-street

car parks and push the problem to surrounding

streets if yellow lines were

installed on Rapaki Rd. City council

has now decided to put the plan on

hold so it can look at how surrounding

roads would be impacted.

GET READY to laugh.

The 24th World Buskers

Festival hits the streets

tonight with acts and

performers from around

the world descending on

Christchurch for 10 days.

This year’s headline act

will be British comedian,

actor and filmmaker, Nina

Conti, who will perform her

acclaimed act In Your Face.

The ventriloquist uses

face masks to turn audience

members into puppets.

Conti has won Best Female

TV Comic at the 2014

British Comedy Awards,

the Barry Award at the

Melbourne International

Comedy Festival for best

show and was nominated

for a BAFTA for her documentary

A Ventriloquist’s

Story: Her Master’s Voice.

Festival director Melissa

Haberfield said it took

more than two years to

get Conti to Christchurch

because she was fully

booked. Seven of her 10

shows were already sold

out, she said.

Conti will perform every

night, from today until

January 28, at 7.15pm, at

Christ’s College.

Steel mesh lawsuit looms

• By Tom Doudney

ABOUT 3000 Canterbury

homeowners have been sent

letters inviting them to join a

class action lawsuit against three

companies which allegedly

supplied sub-standard steel mesh.

Auckland firm Adina Thorn

Lawyers has proposed taking

the lawsuit against the companies

which are also set to be

prosecuted by the Commerce

Commission this year under the

Fair Trading Act.

The steel mesh, alleged to be

below the national building

standard, is typically used in

concrete slab foundations and

driveways.

The letter stated that if the

companies were found guilty

in the Commerce Commission’s

prosecution they would

face fines but this was “very

unlikely” to deliver financial

compensation to affected home

owners.

“Unless the owners of affected

properties take legal action, they

will likely face losses in terms of

resale values, as well as possible

complications with insurance

claims in the event of an earthquake,”

it said.

The three companies were not

named by the Commerce Commission

but one, Steel & Tube,

SAFETY ISSUE: About 3000 Canterbury

homeowners have received letters

inviting them to take part in a class action

lawsuit over sub-standard steel mesh

allegedly being used in their homes.

chose to identify itself. Steel &

Tube has said the commission’s

decision in relation to itself was

about the application of testing

methodologies and mistaken

use of a testing laboratories

logo on test certificates, not

the performance

characteristics of

its seismic mesh.

Adina Thorn

Lawyers senior

associate Richard

Hart (left) said

homes which received the letters

had been chosen based on having

had a building consent issued

during the four years that the

non-complying mesh was being

supplied. He acknowledged the

firm did not know whether it had

been used in any of the specific

homes it sent letters to.

The 3000 was just a subset of

potentially affected homes with

the total number “too difficult to

obtain at this stage,” Mr Hart said.

“This is a potentially serious

problem, we don’t want to alarm

people but on the other hand

it’s an opportunity for people to

perhaps find out a bit more and

find out whether or not [joining

the lawsuit] is worthwhile.”

Letters had been sent to new

Auckland subdivisions as well

but Mr Hart said Canterbury had

the potential to be worse affected

due to the possibility of future

seismic activity in the region.

Steel & Tube communications

manager Tanya Katterns said

Adina Thorn had not provided

information to support its

claims that resale values and

insurance claims could be

affected.

“We believe our seismic mesh

ensures building safety,” she said.

Last year Ministry of Business

Innovation and Employment

general manager building system

performance Derek Baxter

said he was not concerned that

the mesh posed a safety risk for

newly-built houses and was confident

they would still comply

with the Building Code.

The Structural Engineering

Society has also said homeowners

should not be unnecessarily

concerned about the steel mesh

in their houses.

The city council referred questions

from The Star to the Commerce

Commission. A spokeswoman

for the commission said

it did not wish to comment on

the class action.

Tests show soil

no cause for

CTV building

collapse

•From page 1

“From the (Royal Commission

of Inquiry) we know why this

building collapsed, and who is

responsible,” he said yesterday.

He said the families had been

waiting a long time for justice.

“We know it’s a

long process and

it’s frustrating,

but we just have to

wait,” he said.

The police

investigation has

taken two years,

and involved

A police report on the investigation

was completed and given to

the Christchurch Crown Solicitor

for review in December.

A Royal Commission of Inquiry

into the building collapse in 2012

found there were inadequacies in

the construction on the building,

and it should not have been given

a building permit.

Jeanette Beaumont, whose son

Matty died in the CTV building,

said waiting had been difficult

for the families, but she was

glad the police investigation was

thorough.

Ticket for The Boss fan

Concert

opportunity

for someone

deserved

• By Gabrielle Stuart

AFTER HIS plans for a trip

of a lifetime fell over, British

Bruce Springsteen fan Paul

McGuirk hopes to turn his own

disappointment into someone

else’s day.

Mr McGuirk

(left) planned

to surprise his

wife, Lynn,

with a trip to

Christchurch to

see the Springsteen

concert

in February, to

celebrate their 50th birthdays.

But she had an operation

earlier this month, which left her

unable to fly for several weeks

while she recovers.

Mr McGuirk still plans to

make the trip from their home

in Lancashire alone, but was left

with a spare ticket.

He hopes to find someone

deserving in Christchurch to

donate it to.

“I would like them to

THUNDER ROAD: A British man is offering a spare ticket to

Christchurch’s Bruce Springsteen concert in February.

be someone who has done

something for others in the

community, one of the scores of

people across the world who put

themselves out for others and

make communities work for the

better,” he said.

Mrs McGuirk works as a nurse,

so he said he would love to donate

it to someone who worked

in health or a similar field.

They visited Christchurch with

their children during a world trip

in 2008, and he said they had

been saddened to see the news of

the earthquakes.

“My wife and I fell in love with

the Canterbury area and the hospitality

of its people. We always

promised we would come back,”

he said.

Although Mrs McGuirk

missed out on the trip, he said

they planned to visit New Zealand

again in the future, once she

was fully recovered.

The ticket is for the standing

section at the concert, which

is at AMI Stadium at 5pm on

Tuesday, February 21. Tickets in

that section are currently selling

for $249 each.

Employment breach

costs restaurant $25,000

• By Matthew Theunissen

A CHRISTCHURCH Thai

restaurant has been ordered

to pay $25,000 for failing

to comply with minimum

employment standards.

Bahn Thai Restaurant didn’t

provide staff with written

employment agreements,

failed to keep holiday and leave

records, and failed to keep time

and wage records, according

to an Employment Relations

Authority decision.

The Labour Inspectorate

started investigating the

business after a complaint from

a former employee.

The inspectorate visited

the premises and identified a

number of other employees

whose minimum employment

requirements were being

breached.

The owner claimed he had

not been aware he was required

to comply with minimum

standards for temporary

employees.

He submitted to the ERA that

he was not proficient in English

and was ignorant of the law,

asking that these be considered

as mitigating circumstances.

ERA member David Appleton

disagreed.

“It is almost inconceivable

that a businessman operating

for 10 years in a major city of

New Zealand genuinely did

not become aware that his

business was obliged to issue

its employees with employment

agreements, keep wage and

time, and holiday and leave

records,” he said.

The ERA assessed the

breaches amounted to a total

of $187,000. However, it was

clear that the business would

not be able to meet this amount,

and that it would be out of

proportion to the gravity of the

breaches.

“When I stand back, and

consider the breaches for which

penalties can be legitimately

sought, I consider that $25,000

is an appropriate penalty

overall, as it combines effective

and realistic punishment and

deterrence on the one hand

and ‘affordability’ on the other

hand,” Appleton said.

The inspectorate had

also sought payment for

staff who hadn’t received

what they were owed. However,

all outstanding payments had

been made and the $25,000 was

to be paid to the Crown.

CBHS fights liquor bid

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ONE OF the city’s top schools is

trying to stop a new liquor store

from opening up near its gates.

Christchurch Boys’ High

School has opposed a controversial

off-licence liquor application

on Riccarton Rd.

The school is one of the latest

to oppose the liquor licence

made by PM Liquors Ltd, which

is proposing a liquor store to

be situated on 76 Riccarton Rd,

directly next to a Ministry of

Social Development’s Work and

Income New

Zealand building.

Christchurch

Boys’

High School

headmaster

Nic Hill (left)

said the school

was concerned about the close

proximity of the liquor store to

the school and boarding house.

The liquor store, to be known

as The Liquor Shop Riccarton,

would be located about 850m

away from the school grounds.

“We are doing it for Christchurch

Boys’ High School but there

are lots of students in that area.

It is a thoroughfare used by students

near the bus stop and the

boarding house,” Mr Hill said.

It is one of 11 objections

received by the Christchurch

District Licensing Committee,

including a petition of 15

signatories. Opposers of the application

include the Riccarton

Bush Kilmarnock Residents’

Association, Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

deputy chairwoman Helen

Broughton and owners and

tenants of the Straven Buildings

located on 86 Riccarton Rd. Submissions

have also been made

by the medical officer of health,

Paula Williams, and Constable

Adrienne Jones.

Residents nearby raised concerns

in October last year, saying

there was already too many liquor

stores in the area and it was

“inappropriate” to place a liquor

store next to Work and Income.

A hearing will be held by the

Christchurch District Licensing

Committee on February 2, to be

chaired by Grant Buchanan.

Police say club was

hit twice on Monday

• By Andrew King

CCTV FOOTAGE has revealed

the St Albans Shirley Club was

broken into twice within 90

minutes on Monday.

On Tuesday,

police released the

image of a man

they want to interview

in connection

with an arson

at the club, which

happened shortly

after 9.30am on

Monday.

But yesterday,

when reviewing

the footage, they

found another

man had entered

the club just after 8am. The club

was closed at the time. He is

wanted in relation to money that

was taken.

Detective Constable Craig

Watts said they had not ruled out

the two crimes being linked.

“It’s either an opportunist

crime or they are known to each

other, but at this stage, that is

undetermined,” he said.

The first offender spent about

30 minutes upstairs, police said,

before going to the bar area

downstairs. Money was missing

from the bar.

About 20 minutes later after

the first offender left, the second

man entered the club. Soon after,

a passerby noticed smoke coming

from the building on Hills

Rd and alerted nearby builders

who called the Fire Service.

Accelerant had been poured on

a bookshelf and carpet and was

set on fire, Detective Constable

Watts said.

Police are appealing for any

sightings of the men. If you have

information phone 363 7400, or

Livingstone trumped

over US election plan

• By Bridget Rutherford

CITY COUNCILLOR Glenn

Livingstone thought he would

witness history this week.

He booked tickets to the United

States as a surprise birthday

present for his wife Anthea to see,

what he thought, would be the

inauguration of the first female

president tomorrow, US time.

However, things did not pan out

like he expected

them to.

“We didn’t

know it would be

Trump.”

He booked the

flights months ago

– before Donald

Trump took out the presidential

election in a shock result.

“We thought we’d tie it in

with the inauguration of what

I thought would be the first

woman US president, of course

that turned out to be a bit of a

blooper,” he said.

“I took what I thought was a

reasonable punt, turned out I was

wrong. I think a lot of us didn’t

see that coming.”

The couple left on Sunday and

would spent 12 days over there.

They would visit Dallas first to

see Dealey Plaza, where president

John F Kennedy was assassinated

in 1963.

Then they would head to New

York for four days, Washington

DC for four days to see Mr

Trump’s inauguration.

PROTEST

•A group of women will

march from Victoria Square

to Cathedral Square on

Saturday in opposition of

Trump’s inauguration.

•Women’s March on

Washington will coincide

with the main event in

Washington DC.

The Christchurch event

will begin at 10.30am, with

those taking part hoping

to send the message

that women’s rights are

human rights and all voices

deserve to be heard.

Man saved from blaze

• By Andrew King

PETE BLACK was sound asleep

as flames began to lick the

outside of his upstairs bedroom

– and if it wasn’t for a neighbour

he may not be alive today to tell

his story.

The fire started at about

2am yesterday when a pile of

cardboard and other rubbish

was pushed into a corner of a

carport at the back of the St

John Charity Shop on Lincoln

Rd and then set alight.

Mr Black, who manages the

shop and lives above it, said if

he hadn’t been woken up by

his neighbour, he would be “a

goner”.

“I came down and saw the

flames . . . it’s my worse nightmare

to be honest,” he said.

Luckily for Mr Black the

floor between him and the fire

was made of concrete, which

prevented the fire getting to the

upstairs flat.

“I haven’t slept since being

woken up early this morning,

it’s all a bit surreal,” he said.

Neighbour John Wallace said

he looked outside because he

heard loud voices and noticed

the flames.

“I just tore over there and

started trying to wake up Pete.

It was pure luck, I just happened

to be in the right place at the

right time,” he said.

Addington senior station officer

Gerald Wilson said when

they arrived the flames were

“very close” to cracking the

windows and entering the flat.

“He was so lucky to get out

. . . we managed to stop it before

it really got out of control, but it

was close to getting in the flat,”

he said.

Appliances from Addington,

Sockburn and Central fire stations

battled the blaze for about

an hour.

Detective Constable Craig

Watts said police will review

surrounding CCTV footage

to try identify the offender or

offenders.

“It looks like an opportunist

crime. The occupant was lucky

to make it out,” he said.

The building suffered minor

smoke damage inside, while

outside the fire melted most of

the plastic on a van, destroyed

the heat pumps and left the wall

black.

Mr Wilson said it was a timely

reminder to all businesses to

move bins and other flammable

objects away from the side of

buildings.

“If we can get rid of the opportunity,

then we can prevent

some of these fires,” he said.

Harwood in tune with health for

Debbie Harwood will perform with fellow When

The Cat’s Away singers Annie Crummer and

Margaret Urlich, as well as Sharon O’Neill at the

Selwyn Sounds concert in March. She spoke to

Tom Doudney about her latest endeavours

DEBBIE HARWOOD has

always been interested in helping

people heal but soon she will be

expressing that desire through a

form other than music.

The former When The Cats

Away singer recently qualified as

a hypnotherapist after completing

a two-month course in San

Francisco and is working on

setting up her own practice this

year.

Come March 4 though, her

focus will be on using her vocal

talents to woo the crowd at

Selwyn Sounds when she performs

on a bill stacked with Kiwi

rock royalty. Also playing will be

Dragon, Mi-Sex, the Jordan Luck

Band and Jason Kerrison, among

others.

Harwood said herself, Crummer,

Urlich and O’Neill had

strong chemistry which had been

key to their success.

“Seeing as we have been

making music since the early 80s,

and the 70s in Sharon’s situation,

we have been right through

people’s lives with them as well,”

she said.

“I never ever, ever take that

for granted, I will always get on

stage with enormous respect for

that, that those people have been

through lots of different things,

great things and sad things, with

our music as a soundtrack to

those things.”

Harwood had been interested

in hypnotherapy since undergoing

it herself in her early 20s,

when it helped her overcome

asthma and other health problems

which were affecting her

singing.

However, she only made the

decision to train as a hypnotherapist

early last year.

“I love being able to help people

make changes to core beliefs so

I literally woke up at 8am in the

morning with this feeling, by

10am that morning I had booked

my flights and registered with the

school in San Francisco and off I

went,” she said.

“I am quite impulsive and

when I get a strong feeling about

something I will act on it.”

Harwood has been plagued by

health problems throughout her

career and in 2009 had to seek

more conventional medical help.

Seriously ill at the age of 49, she

underwent open heart surgery

at St George’s Hospital to fix a

failed mitral valve and hole in her

heart.

“One of the funniest things

that has ever happened to me was

when I woke up from the operation

in ICU. I was very, very ill,

and I looked at the bottom of my

bed and my surgeon and ward

doctor were there,” she said.

Major roadworks on the

Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

Major roadworks will be carried out on the Russley Road/Memorial Avenue intersection

from 7pm, Friday January 20 until 6am, Monday January 23.

Motorists may experience delays

of up to 20 minutes.

People travelling to Christchurch

International Airport should plan

ahead and allow plenty of extra

travel time.

The work to reconstruct the road

through the intersection is part of

the State Highway 1 Russley Road

The project is progressing well

“I was looking at the ward

doctor and he had long hair

and blue scrubs and his name

tag said David Bowie – that was

his actual name. I am pretty sure

I said to him at some point: ‘I

think your best work was Life on

Mars, David’. He was a musician

too.”

Her health was now better than

it had been for more than 20

years and felt she had received “a

second go at life.”

Harwood has just recorded a

new song called Isolated which

she hopes to release in the

next two months. She plans on

recording four more songs but

is not expecting to put out a full

album.

She was looking forward to

playing on the same bill with the

other Selwyn Sounds artists, such

as Dragon which she had a long

Waitangi’s a ‘circus’ – Gough

Library

24/7

City councillor

Jamie Gough

gives his

views on

Waitangi Day

celebrations

The prime minister is wrong

when he says many New

Zealanders cringe “a bit” at

Waitangi. I think they cringe

a lot.

There’s been the metaphorical

and literal mud-slinging;

it even graduated to giant

sex-toy-slinging last year (à la

Steven Joyce).

Yes, nothing quite demonstrates

dignity and decorum

like a flying dildo to the face of

a minister of the Crown.

The Harawira ‘pack’ and

their not so merry band turn

it into a classless circus – not

that I’d expect anything less.

I won’t even refer to them as

a whānau, as I don’t believe

they’re representative of

family-values, nor Māori, in

the slightest.

It beggared belief for me

when Hone Harawira stated

he wouldn’t be comfortable

if one of his seven children

dated a Pākehā. I couldn’t care

CRINGE-WORTHY?: City councillor Jamie Gough says

Prime Minister Bill English deserves respect and should

have been given the opportunity to officially speak at

Waitangi.

less if a son or daughter of

mine wanted to date someone

with Māori ancestry, and

surely most level-headed New

Zealanders would share my

stance.

Decency and integrity may

be qualities one would hope

your child’s partner of choice

possesses; but ethnicity? I find

that frankly offensive. With

that sort of attitude feeding

into the ranks at Waitangi,

how on earth could we ever

expect progress to be made?

The office of the prime

minister deserves respect irrespective

of political leanings

or past baggage, so good on

Bill English for showing the

gumption to decline attendance

given they refused to

allow the leader of our nation

the opportunity to speak.

If it were up to me, I would

take the ceremony away from

Waitangi altogether. It should

be a privilege, not a right.

Many years ago, the late

Paul Holmes said: “Waitangi

Day produced its usual hatred,

rudeness and violence against

a clearly elected prime minister

from a group of hateful,

hate-fuelled weirdos who seem

to exist in a perfect world of

benefit provision.”

It sure looks like while some

things change, most stay the

same. Unfortunately, you

could safely bet that quote

would be just as applicable on

any given year.

Busy year expected

We said:

THIS YEAR will be another

busy one with regeneration

projects around Christchurch

finishing or reaching major

milestones.

February 22 will mark

the sixth anniversary of the

devastating 2011 earthquake.

A national service will be held

at the Canterbury Earthquake

Memorial on Oxford Tce, on the

banks of the Avon River.

Having the memorial

completed in time for the

anniversary, including the

inscription of the earthquake

victims’ names on the marble

wall, will make for a poignant

time of remembrance and I want

to thank all those who worked

on this important project.

In the middle of the year,

main construction works on the

Convention Centre will begin.

Around that time the Justice and

Emergency Services Precinct will

be fully operational and be home

to about 1100 staff, while receiving

around 900 visitors a day.

Following on from the

Kaikoura earthquake, which

saw three urgent bills passed

unanimously to improve

response and recovery

operations, Civil Defence will

this year focus on more public

education and developing a

national alerting system.

THe year is well under way

in the defence portfolio. On

Monday, I met with the Defence

Minister from Singapore, in

Waiouru, to discuss the strong

defence relationship between our

two nations. We also observed

Exercise Thunder Warrior, an

annual Singaporean live firing

training exercise held here in

New Zealand.

I believe we have a lot to

be optimistic about in 2017.

New Zealand is in great shape,

with strong economic growth

predicted for this year and

unemployment at 4.9 per cent.

This is back down to levels we

last saw before the 2009 Global

Christchurch Regeneration

A study of CCTV

footage at the hospital’s

emergency department

during the February 22,

2011, earthquake, found

that instead of following

the drop, cover, hold

advice, people tried to

help others around them.

Nurses on duty were also

more likely to immediately

think of their patients,

rather than trying to stay

safe themselves, the

study showed “some acts

we saw were extremely

selfless, like people

covering patients with

their own bodies”

You said:

Rachael Hanson – We’re

so quick to criticise nurses,

caregivers and doctors. It’s

about time we say thank you

and well done. When everyone

else ran home to check on their

families, these people turned

up to work, even off the clock,

to help. Well done to them. I

appreciated you then and still

now. Even if no one else does.

Christine Schuler – In the

open plan call centre where I

was working during the Feb

quake, most of us did dive under

our desks and held on until

the shaking stopped. Where

there were staff members who

needed assistance, the people

nearby tended to try to help

them instead of worrying about

themselves.

Carol Rota – I was at work

that day at a rest home and

hospital. I can remember, as a

cleaner, helping a caregiver to

get a patient out of bed to get

her out of harms way when we

had a big shake. We thought of

that lady and covered her with

our bodies. No thought of us

just to keep her safe – that’s just

how it was then.

CJ Mills – It was “survival

tactics 101” . . . which ever scenario.

Film rekindles war memories

• By Bridget Rutherford

WHEN THE McKee brothers

went to fight in World War 1,

they left behind the family farm.

Greg, Barney, Cornelius and

Joseph joined the New Zealand

Mounted Rifles Regiment to

serve in Jerusalem and Damascus.

All four returned home.

They came from Waihaorunga,

a farm in South Canterbury.

When the call came for horsemen

to join the mounted rifles

all four enlisted. The youngest,

17-year-old Joseph, lied about his

age so he could go.

He wanted to see the world.

His son, Russell, has kept a

collection of photos Joseph took

while he was over there.

Last week the memories were

rekindled when Russell’s sister,

Colleen Fuller, saw an article in

The Star about a plan to make a

film, The Cold Footed Mounts,

about the World War 1 mounted

rifles regiments.

The photos feature some of

the men who were serving in the

mounted rifles, the Suez Canal,

and the camels they rode on.

Russell McKee, 86, said the

four brothers were all in the

same regiment, but once they

went over there many rode camels

rather than horses.

Their older brother, Owen Mc-

Kee, did not join the army. He

was originally a Catholic Priest,

before joining a communist

group in Christchurch, Russell

McKee said.

The four brothers were affected

by poison gas and had to go to

hospital before being sent back to

New Zealand, he said.

“He [Joseph] never spoke

about the war. On Anzac Day he

would go away and cry.”

When the brothers returned,

the farm had gone bankrupt, he

said. So they started a roading

construction business called

British Pavements Ltd.

They built it up and sold it to

Isaac Construction, he said.

Champion jockey hangs up his

With more than 2500 wins, retiring jockey David

Walsh is one of New Zealand’s most successful

riders. Bridget Rutherford spoke to him about eating

pizza off the Cox Plate, pulling the fingers at a rude

punter and why a small horse with wonky eyes and

funny feet was one of his favourites

So after more than 41 years

you’ve decided to retire, why?

I haven’t been that well for

the last three to four years, I’ve

had diverticulitis. Prior to going

to Mauritius in August, I had

the first of a two-part operation

and I had the second just before

Christmas. I’ve had a fantastic

run; I’ve never worked a day in

my life. With my health issues,

diverticulitis has been caused by

continuous wasting over time,

losing weight and being in the

sauna. I’ve been losing weight for

every race day for 30-odd-plus

years, and for me that was the

parcel. Maybe that’s had an effect

on me long term, and maybe

the body’s just saying enough’s

enough. I’m at an age, 57, where

I can still turn my hand to something

else.

What’s next?

There’s nothing in place. I’d

like to think there’s something

for me in racing. I applied for a

steward’s job (in charge of maintaining

the integrity of race day

operations) midway through last

year, but in the end, there wasn’t

a position available. That’s a possibility

for the future. Maybe TV

or media work, or maybe even

working with apprentices.

When did it all begin?

I knocked on Jim Lalor’s door

(Ashburton trainer), at 13. I

didn’t know him from a bar of

soap and I said I want to be a

jockey. He probably thought

to himself, here’s another little

short arse so-and-so, he’ll last

five minutes. But I started working

and never left. This was when

I was at school; I’d bike to work,

go to school, then bike back to

work. I had my first ride when

I was 15 in the November and I

left school at the end of that year.

Did you come from a racing

family?

No one in my family had anything

to do with horses, but my

go to the TAB and have a little

nibble. My siblings and I were

very sporty. We just lived to play

rugby on a Saturday. It became

apparent at age nine or 10, all

these kids started growing and

I didn’t. My nickname’s Tiny.

I was a handy player – played

for Mid-Canterbury. I could

tackle anyone, but on occasions,

I would wake up on the

sideline. By the time I got to 11, I

pulled the pin. When I was 15, I

weighed 39-and-a-half kilos.

saddle after life in the fast lane

In my first year, I rode four

winners. In the second, I had 18

winners. The next year, I rode

40-something. Each year I put

on about 4kg and, by the time I

was 18, I was about 51kg.

Tell me about your first race.

It was a horse called Darnley

Express at Riccarton. It was the

third day of the New Zealand

Cup meeting in 1974. I was a bit

anxious. I remember thinking

after, right, that’s the first one out

of the way and that was a big step

up. There were 22 runners and I

beat seven home.

What about your first win?

It was in Timaru in my fifth

ride on a horse called Three

Sevens. It was a distance race

and I didn’t really know what

I was doing. The horse was a

natural back runner and I just

sat there but the gaps just kept

coming – I got up and won right

on the finish. It was just an utter

fluke. Once you got a taste of it,

you wanted to win more.

You’re known for being a bit

of a front runner.

People think that. I wouldn’t

say I liked to get out in front, it

just happened a lot. Jim Lalor’s

horses raced quite handy. That’s

how he trained them and that’s

Manawatu Challenge Stakes at Awapuni in 1993 before going

on to win the Cox Plate the following year.

how I learned to ride. A lot of

trainers in the North Island

didn’t like their horses leading,

but for some reason horses

ran for me. I was never scared

to go forward if the pace was

too slow – no matter what my

instructions were. If you’re going

too slow, do something about

it. An even speed is 12 to the

furlong. If they start going 13, it’s

too slow.

Speaking of front running,

was winning the Cox Plate at

Moonee Valley, Melbourne, a

highlight of your career?

Yes, it’s one of the big three

races in Australia. To win one of

those is unbelievable. It was in

1994 and I was riding Solvit.

Did you have instructions

from trainer Moira Murdoch?

No, she never gave me any

instructions because he’d just

about lead every time. He was a

free running horse and normally

fast out of the gates. I rode him

31 times from March 6, 1993,

until he retired on August 24,

1996 and had eight wins on him.

We raced in the Cox Plate the

year before and got second.

Did the race pan out like you

expected?

Well actually, it was the first

time he had made a slightly

slow beginning. He didn’t lead

until after the 1600m, he sort of

dawdled a little and then worked

his way to the front.

How did you celebrate the

win?

We were like stunned mullets.

We went back to the hotel and I

sat there on the bed and watched

three different news channels

and each highlighted the Cox

Plate. We got invited to a pizza

place over Mornington way, and

we ended up eating pizza off the

Cox Plate. We went home after

that because we were knackered.

What was the jockey’s

percentage of that race?

He [Solvit] won $2,190,265 so

it was about $60,000.

How did it rate with Mr

Lomondy’s win in the Caulfield

Cup?

It was a completely different

feeling. In the Caulfield Cup, it

was a dreary sort of a day and

afterwards the media gravitated

to the second horse because he

was one of the favourites for the

Melbourne Cup. Lomondy

was quite an outsider and to

most people it was a bit of a

surprise.

What goes through your

mind when you’re in the

starting gates?

It depends on the race and

the type of horse you’re on. The

biggest thing is try to relax and

make sure your horse is relaxed.

Horses naturally jump out; you

don’t need to force them to get

out.

Where’s your favourite track?

I don’t have un-favourite

tracks because you get psyched

out. The best track to ride a race

on is Trentham, in Wellington,

because you can ride anywhere.

Ellerslie is one of my favourites

because of the atmosphere. And

Riccarton is great as well, it’s the

biggest in the country.

Record-setting jockey rides into retirement

•From page 23

It didn’t matter if it was big

or small, wet or dry, there were

races to be won, and you had to

figure out a way to win them.

The pretty or best rides don’t

always win the race. Sometimes

you got to ride them ugly.

What’s been the toughest part

of your career?

I had a couple of suspensions

for not giving horses every

chance. That was pretty tough to

take. In one case, the horse was

extremely unlucky and the other

was, when I look back, a lazy

ride. Maybe I could have done a

bit better but it was certainly no

intent not to try. One suspension

was six weeks and the other four

months.

Have you had many injuries?

I’ve had numerous fractures

and dislocations and I had an

operation on the ligaments in my

knee. But when I was young I did

judo, I went to the Canterbury

champs for it. They teach you to

fall, and when I started riding it

was good because I wasn’t scared

to fall. When you fall off a horse,

you’ve just got to try and relax. If

you tense up, something’s going

to break.

Any embarrassing moments?

I’ve been abused a few times by

punters. They’d say “you bloody

mug Walsh, hang up ya boots.”

This was 35-odd years ago

because they’d lost their money.

I gave one of them the fingers

one day, probably shouldn’t have.

Lucky the stewards didn’t see or

I might have been in trouble.

Have you had favourite

horses?

Many. Courier Bay was

certainly one of my favourites,

a big powerful sprinting horse

and I won 13 races on him. Solvit

was a great horse. A horse I had

a soft spot for was The Varmint.

I ended up winning 11 on him.

He was a little horse, had wonky

eyes and funny feet but he just

tried so hard.

Has making weight been hard

for you?

I was never a natural

lightweight. My weight settled

at 53kg normally in the week.

I’d be losing 2kg in the sauna,

sometimes more, before a

Saturday race. I’m a bit different

because I don’t weigh myself.

The more you weigh yourself

the heavier you get. I only ever

weighed myself after I’d sweated

myself on a race day. I tried to eat

as normal as possible. I’d have a

yoghurt or a piece of fruit

for breakfast, not much for

lunch, then have a decent meal

at night.

When did you stop growing?

At about 19. I’m 5ft 2in

(1.57m). My mum’s small and my

brothers aren’t that much bigger

than me. I was two months

premature, that’s possibly why I

was the runt of the litter.

And what does your wife Julie

do?

She is the accounts manager at

Canterbury Jockey Club. She can

ride, she grew up with ponies.

We’ve been married for 24 years.

How did you two meet?

Her sister and brother-in-law

were trainers in Palmerston

North. I went around there for

dinner one night and it turned

out they were checking me out

to see what I was like. To be fair,

I was pretty aggressive in those

days, I had a passion to win and

lot of people thought I was a

grumpy bastard, and I probably

was. But away from race day, I

was a different person. I must say

I have mellowed a lot (laughs).

They asked if I would take a

present over for Jules, and it

was just a way of getting us to

meet.

You’ve ridden more winners

than any other jockey in

New Zealand history, how

does it feel to leave a legacy like

that?

I’m pretty proud of it really.

It’s not something you ever set

out to do. I had a goal if I could

ride a winner a week on average

we were staying in the game for

Lance’s (O’Sullivan) record.

What do you like to do in

your spare time?

I played a lot of tennis until my

knee started giving me a hard

time. I play a bit of golf and in

the last four years I’ve done a lot

of fishing.

are the same as for all lavenders. As Mediterranean

plants, they prefer a dry, friable, sandy soil which is free

draining. To help achieve this you may want to mound the soil where you

are planting the lavenders. Also, add plenty of Daltons Compost when planting,

as this will also help with drainage.

Plants should be pruned immediately after they have finished flowering to extend

their lifespan. Lavender is also ideal for bringing bees into the garden.

For more advice, read our How to Grow guides at

www.daltons.co.nzhow-to-guides

Even if you’re the most

hands off gardener, the

most important task to do

during the summer months

is apply mulch around

plants, especially those

in pots. Mulching is vital

in maintaining a healthy

garden and hinders water

evaporation - keeping

moisture in the soil. This is

particularly important on

exceptionally hot or windy

days and helps prevent

plants from wilting. Always

create a clean slate and

remove all weeds before

applying your mulch.

Put in a plan if you go on holiday

IF YOU are spending the last two

weeks of the school holidays away

from your garden, neglecting it

can lead to problems.

However, with careful planning,

these problems can be

reduced if not avoided.

Firstly, try not having your vege

garden ‘peaking’ at this time, this

may mean not planting anything

new until you return from

holiday or planting short growing

crops now which you can harvest

before heading away.

Mulch your garden and potted

plants with pea straw or crushed

bark. It’s vital in maintaining a

healthy garden and hinders water

evaporation, keeping the moisture

in the soil.

As a guide, a good layer of

The magazine for

gardeners who

like To geT Their

hands dirTy

www.gardener.kiwi

100%

mulch should be applied approximately

50-100mm thick around

plants.

Watering is an essential part

of a healthy gardening over the

summer months. If you have an

irrigation system, install a timer

or ask a helpful neighbour to

water your garden while you are

away.

Don’t forget about your indoor

plants as they can suffer as

temperatures inside intensify. If

necessary, reposition your plants

away from very sunny windows.

There are watering solutions for

indoor plants such as drip spikes

or water globes.

Simply screw the drip spikes

onto a plastic water bottle and

place it into the soil. It will release

water to the plant. Have a good

look in garden stores or online as

to what is available.

Alternatively, you can place

plants in the bathtub with about

3-5cm of water (depending on

type of plant) which will keep

them going for around two

weeks.

Some top tips when it comes to

watering you garden throughout

summer are:

• With many plants (trees and

shrubs particularly), if they are

not watered well and regularly

over the hotter summer months,

they will stop growing. If you

maintain a consistent regime

then you can expect excellent

results with continued growth

through the hot summer months.

• Be regular when watering

your garden. Little and often is

best, avoiding the hottest part of

the day when plants are

heat stressed. Once a day in the

early morning or evening up to

three times a week should be

plenty.

• Some plants such as roses do

require deep watering to encourage

deep root development. So

apply extra water to those plant

types in the early part of the day.

Avoid getting foliage wet as this

can promote the spread of disease

on plants like tomatoes and roses.

Aim for the root zone instead.

•Water until it begins to puddle

on top of the soil which means

the soil has reached its water

holding capacity.

ESSENTIAL: Water your

vege patch through a

timer. Early morning or late

evening are the best times

to irrigate.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Health promotion

career changes lives

Ara Institute of Canterbury’s Bachelor of

Applied Science in Physical Activity and

Health Promotion offers students the chance

to change lives.

Recent graduate Abby Wilson is working

as a Physical Health Advisor for Sport

Canterbury, supporting patients with a range

of conditions to become more active to

benefit their health and wellbeing.

She says that connecting with people in the

community and seeing them create change in

their lives is very fulfilling.

“It’s great when you meet people who want

to change and you know that you have the

ability to help them transform their approach

to being active. Seeing them become

independently active and continue with a

healthier lifestyle is amazing.”

During her degree, Abby

completed placements with Falls

Prevention and the Canterbury

District Health Board. She says

that the opportunity to work in

the local community and build

networks was invaluable.

The placements are the best

part of the degree. You spend

about 130 hours in second and

third year working and you

definitely feel ready to go out and

get a job when you finish. I use

the majority of what I learned in

my degree every single day.”

Students explore foundation

topics in their first year and

then focus on the physical activity and health

promotion specialisation for the remainder of

their study. Graduates are prepared to enter a

wide range of roles in the sports, health and

wellness sectors.

Abby says that the degree has given her

options. She has already experienced the

diversity the industry has to offer, including

working in Abu Dhabi as a personal trainer

immediately after graduating.

The degree offers so many opportunities,

which means you get to go out and do

different things throughout your career.”

The Bachelor of Applied Science (Physical

Activity and Health Promotion) is a three

year programme and is offered at Ara in

Christchurch. Part-time study options are

also available.

New future-focussed

health and wellbeing

qualification

Ara Institute of Canterbury’s new Certificate

in Health and Wellbeing will prepare students

for the diverse environments and roles of the

future.

Human Services Manager Deirdre

Richardson says that the Level 4 qualification

will give students a solid foundation for

employment, professional development, or to

progress into a degree.

“Students will learn about the latest factors

that are driving the constantly-evolving

health and wellbeing sector, and develop a

framework of knowledge that they can apply

to different situations,” she says.

Enrolments are now open for the one

year programme, which will commence in

February 2017 at the Institute’s Christchurch

and Timaru campuses. Three specialisations

are available: Social Services, Mental Health

and Addiction Support, and a Community

Facilitation specialisation that could lead

to roles including disability support and

diversional therapy.

The new programme was developed after

extensive consultation with industry and

has a strong work-integrated learning focus.

50 credits are linked to a 200-hour practical

placement in the workforce, overseen by the

expert tutors at Ara.

Students from all specialisations will

complete 70 credits in core courses that will

prepare them to work with a wide range of

The Star

people, using up-to-the-minute practices.

Richardson says that the programme

will also provide students with valuable

opportunities to learn from others who

are working in different areas or that

have personal experience in their chosen

specialisation.

“It will encourage students to learn about

roles outside where they undertake their

placement, exposing them to the broad scope

of services and practices in the industry.”

The programme has been designed to be as

accessible as possible for students. It will be

held during school hours on just two days of

the week and will follow the school calendar

year. Part-time study options are available and

Ara has a comprehensive range of support

services to ensure a smooth transition into

study.

School preparation

With Christmas and New Year’s

celebrations now a distant memory and

summer holidays drawing to a close

its time to start preparing for the year

ahead and getting your kids organised

for school.

If your little ones are starting a new

school you’II be getting them measured

up for their new school uniform or

making a trip to the book shop to stock

their backpacks.

New timetables and routines are best

set in place in the couple of weeks

leading up introduce earlier bedtimes

and gradually wake the kids earlier

each morning to ease them back into a

healthy sleep wake cycle.

Serving meals at home which are in line

with what the school timetable dictates

is also a good way to get your kids back

into the rituals schools demand and

helps accustom the little ones adapt

before the school year begins.

Setting up a calendar in a central

location in the household will make

sure each family member is on the

same page when it comes to carpooling

and extracurricular activities.

South New Brighton School’s

Got Talent

One of the great things about our

school is that it is a full primary (Year

1-8). This means that our students can

stay with the same group of friends and

teachers until high school and get to

take on a lot of areas of responsibility

around the school.

This year we had a large group of Year 8

Prefects who have buddied up with new

entrants, visited our local kindergarten,

led assemblies, arranged a staff vs. Year

8’s basketball tournament and worked

in the office at lunchtimes to give our

hard-working office staff a break.

We also have so many talented students

at SNBS! For the second year in a row,

our school has held an SNBS’s Got

Talent Show to showcase this talent.

This is another one of the things that our

Prefect group has helped to organise.

69 of our Year 5-8 students gave up their

morning teas and lunchtimes to audition

for their place in the Semi Finals.

There were Solo and Group categories

of Singing, Dance, Entertainment and

Instrumental. All of this could not

have happened without our dedicated

teachers, who gave up their valuable

time to judge and decide who would

make it through to the finals. Leading

into the final, the competition was fierce.

Dance Crew, from left to right: Morgan Bailey,

Ella Timbrell, Molly Chalmers and Chloe

Timbrell.

The 8 finalists performed stunningly in

front of the whole school at our Whanau

Hui. It was an intensely difficult decision

for our judges, Tom and Holly from

Original Scripts Theatre School. They

decided that the overall winner was

‘Dance Crew’, dancing to “It’s the Hard

Knock Life” from the musical Annie,

and they won a $10 subway voucher (a

special thanks to Subway Ferrymead

for donating these) and Miss Gill, our

Deputy Principal and organiser of

SNBS’s Got Talent, took them out for

lunch. Every participant was awarded a

certificate at our school Whanau Hui.

Small School - Big Reputation

St Albans Catholic School is a small

school with a big educational reputation.

Located at 49 Rutland Street, this Year

0-6 co-educational integrated school

has a maximum roll of 110.

Enrolments for 2017 are welcome, with

just a few spaces left!

There is a great joy in being part of a

small school family” says Principal Mrs

Annette Sjoberg. “Our dedicated staff

know our students very well and actively

respond to their interests, strengths and

needs. Everyone is visible in our school!”

During 2016 we hosted a team from

ERO. An excerpt from their report

states,

The children learn in an environment

which clearly promotes their sense of

well-being, and helps them to focus

consistently on their learning. A strong

sense of community exists within the

school. The curriculum successfully

reflects the emphasis the school

places on learner qualities and virtues.

Children are provided with a wide range

of learning opportunities including

cultural and environmental studies.

They place appropriate emphasis

on effectively engaging children and

making learning enjoyable.”

We look forward to 2017 with great

anticipation. Along with ten Christchurch

primary and secondary schools

we belong to the Catholic Schools

Community of Learning. There is

already a great spirit of co-operation

and collaboration within this group. The

intention is to work together to raise

student achievement across the schools,

with a particular focus on Mathematics,

Writing and Science.

As is said: Watch this Space!

Kirkwood Intermediate -

School of Choice

Kirkwood Intermediate is a very well

resourced school where all of our

practices are based on solid educational

foundations. We have nine specialist

Technology classrooms, a safe and

vibrant community feel, and stable

professional leadership.

We are an inclusive school with mixed

ability classes, programmes to extend

and enrich all of our children and we

have lots of opportunities in sport,

cultural and academic areas.

Because we are a state, co-educational

intermediate school, everything we do,

everything we have, and all of our plans

for the future are designed for children

aged 10 -13 years old – our Year 7 and

8 students often called the ‘emerging

adolescent’. These wonderful children

are going through a real growth spurt:

intellectually, emotionally and physically.

The staff at Kirkwood choose to work

with these children, and recognise the

very special attributes and challenges

of this age group. High standards of

behaviour are maintained and our

children are well known for being

respectful, polite and pleasant.

Our children choose to come here

seeing something about our school

that appeals to them, and I believe our

reputation is second to none. Come and

visit our school and I see yourself what

makes Kirkwood the great school it is.

Phil Tappenden, Principal

Merrin School had an

exciting year 2016

We are looking forward to an exciting

year with STEM, (Science, Technology,

Engineering and Mathematics) to the

fore at Merrin School including 3D

printers, robotics and a brand new

maths programme for our Year 4-8

students.

We will be hosting more Sci-tech

challenges at all levels, whereby our

parents and children enjoy the fun of

working together to create and explore

through science and technology.

In term 1 we are off to the beach for our

whole school topic: “Toiora te Moana

- Toiora te Tangata, Healthy Seas -

Healthy People”. Our students will look

at the natural environment around the

coast and explore the effects people

have on coastal areas. Science and

Technology is a great vehicle to develop

social awareness amongst our students.

We want to ensure that our precious

coastline is protected by all.

Hillmorton High School -

The Best of Many Worlds!

Hillmorton now has a well-established

Middle School which specialises in

education for students in Years 7-10,

and a Senior High School offering a

broad array of courses and subjects for

students in Years 11-13.

Our students all identify strongly with

the school and appreciate that learning

alongside students from a range of

backgrounds, is in itself educating

them to develop the interpersonal skills

needed to succeed in our diverse New

Zealand society and within a global

society.

Success in learning is the focus with all

students. No matter their prior learning,

they are expected to make good

progress, working always towards their

personal best.

At Hillmorton we embrace and

celebrate difference within a supportive,

family centered, caring and gentle

environment. Opportunities to learn

and to lead abound in our medium size

school, in all year levels from Year 7 to

Year 13. Our class sizes are small and

learning is able to be designed to meet

the needs of both those who need extra

support and those who excel, to allow

them broad opportunities to follow their

passions.

Our students live up to our motto of

“Whãia Te Iti Kahurangi - Personal Best,

Nothing Less.”

2017 edition

Hornby High School

We will start 2017 with a bang, quite

literally, as we get set for the first

demolitions that precede our rebuild.

First to go are the administration

block, and the library building, due to

come down in March. Contractors then

begin the build for the first part of the

brand new Hornby High School with

our Hauora, administration, learning

commons and specialist learning spaces

that cover sciences, creative arts, and

technologies.

The work that goes on inside our

buildings is also changing with two

ongoing developments.

We are asking all students to have

Chromebooks available during their

school day. The evidence for their

significant impact on learning is

growing, all of this work underpinned

with our learning methodology of

‘Learn Create Share’ (supported by the

Manaiakalani Outreach Programme)

which we share with our partnership

schools in our Uru Manuka cluster. This

pedagogy develops deeper learning and

digital fluency, both essential in our

modern era.

We are also developing student and

staff abilities to cause learning using

project based learning. PBL is well

known to improve student engagement

and deeper learning, and following

successful trials in 2016 is set to grow in

use this year.

This all forms a part of the backdrop to

our journey towards the school’s exciting

vision ‘A centre of creative excellence’.

Make sure that you are a part of this

exciting future focussed journey.

Transforming the face of

education in the East

Haeata Community Campus will open

its doors for the first time in Term One

of 2017. The purpose-built school for

students from Years 1-13 will be located

on the former Aranui High site and is

set to transform education in the East of

Christchurch.

At Haeata our approach to learning

is different. We believe that every

student will be motivated or inspired

by something – we just have to find out

what it is and tap into their strengths.

Haeata’s personalised learning

environment will provide meaningful

experiences that challenge, motivate

and inspire. Our students will have

the chance to meet with and learn

from industry, cultural and community

leaders, and not be constrained by the

four walls of a classroom.

Traditional classrooms will be replaced

with interactive hubs that allow for

a mixture of collaborative learning,

individual learning and teacher-led

instruction. Education needs to be

authentic and personalised for our

students – building on existing strengths

and interests. The ‘one size fits all’

concept will not be applied at Haeata.

Whãnau will play a big part and be

involved from day one, with the chance

to work alongside teachers in developing

individual learning plans.

Our students will learn skills

appropriate for their futures. They will

serve their local community and address

regional and global issues. They will be

independent and self-motivated with an

eye for opportunities and the skills and

confidence to explore them.

If you are interested in enrolling your

child at Haeata, we would be delighted

to meet with you to answer any

questions and show you around our

facilities. Please call us on (03) 929 0509

or visit www.haeata.school.nz

Andy Kai Fong, Manukura/Principal

2017 Pathways

Aspiration and success: learning

at Linwood College is founded on

personalised pathways. Learning is

personalised and individual needs are

recognised and met. Each individual

receives the content and style of

education that is appropriate for their

specific stage of learning and social

development. These stages build upon

one another to form an integrated,

personalised pathway.

Students know that what they are

learning is based on their own individual

pathways. They increasingly take

responsibility for their own learning,

knowing that with positive actions and

effort they will achieve.

Students learn best when who they

are – language, culture, identity – is

affirmed. Enhancing the mana and

dignity of the individual is at the heart

of Linwood College. The personalized

pathways model creates whãnauschool

partnerships as it recognizes

and nurtures the uniqueness of

each one of our students and their

specific capabilities. It creates

multiple opportunities for leadership

so that students excel and develop

independence.

Our school’s Year 7-13 curriculum

creates aspiration and community. There

is educational and social continuity, yet

with the ‘rites of passage’ that students

of all ages stress are important as they

grow and mature. It brings out the best

in our students.

At our school all students can make

their mark – academic, cultural,

sporting and set their direction for life

after secondary school. An LC leaver

is confident and well-prepared for the

future. Our leavers join thousands

of former LC students who achieve

personal success both within New

Zealand and overseas.

2017 edition

Excitement high at Avonside

Girls’ High School

2017 will be a year of progress for the

Avonside Girls’ High School whanau.

Not only will the design of their state-ofthe-art

new campus alongside Shirley

Boys’ be revealed, their BYOD (Bring

Your Own Device) scheme is being

increased to include all of the Year 9

cohort, a new uniform is in the pipeline

and the school is adopting a new style

of form class to lend greater support to

students.

Principal Sue Hume says the new

system will see each girl with the same

whanau group teacher for her five years

at school.

“This model gives students the

opportunity to bond with one teacher

and have her own family within the

Avonside community. The classes will

have an hour each week together – that

will be an important time to ensure that

each student is happy and progressing

within our school environment.”

Sue Hume says this is part of Avonside’s

drive to increase student wellbeing and

support.

“Avonside’s core focus is not just on

educating but empowering girls to

be the best they can be. You can’t

lift students to their highest levels

of achievement unless you have a

supportive atmosphere.”

Students are also looking forward to

increased access to digital technology

with the BYOD scheme rolling out across

the Year 9 cohort, with the view to having

full BYOD across the school by 2019.

“Technological devices are just a tool

for learning but they do unlock a whole

new way of engaging students with

their learning. It is also important our

girls have the very best IT skills for

further study and future employment

opportunities.”

Avonside Girls High Seniors Students.

Back to

A fresh look for Shirley

Boys’ High School

You won’t have to look hard to see

one of the new developments at Shirley

Boys’ High School in 2017 – it will be on

almost every student you see.

A new uniform is being rolled out… so

it’s out with the grey shorts and walk

socks and in with a sleek new navy and

light blue kit. Along with the new look,

Shirley Boys’ is continuing to show it’s at

the forefront of education with several

new initiatives, including a unique new

form class, the roll out of a BYOD (Bring

Your Own Device) system across the

whole school and the introduction of a

new teaching model.

“All of our teachers will be given the

chance to co-teach in 2017 and 2018.

That will see two teachers working with

two classes of students at the same

time” says Headmaster John Laurenson.

“It’s a collaborative approach that we

trialed in 2016. The feedback was very

positive – teachers inspired each other

and the students liked being able to

experience a range of teaching styles.”

The new form class will have a strong

emphasis on tikanga and te reo

Mãori, embracing Maori principles

such as manaakitanga (exercising

compassion and empathy), thus

providing a respectful environment

for focused mentoring and raising

student achievement. Priority for the

new class will be given to students who

are engaged in Mãori cultural pursuits,

studying te reo or who have come

bilingual or immersion units.

Christchurch Girls

High School

At Christchurch Girls’ High School we

believe each girl should be encouraged

and guided to be all she is capable of

becoming. We want her to be aware of

the myriad of possibilities that exist so

that she can become confident, resilient

and skilled; a young woman who stands

proud and tall, in any context, who not

only has a voice but something to say

and who is able, to use the business

metaphor, take a seat at any table she

chooses.

We believe we must educate, nurture

and inspire young women. We wish to

challenge our students to be discerning

critical and creative thinkers, who are

comfortable with the concepts of hard

work and service. By providing a wide

range of opportunities, both inside and

outside the classroom, we want our

students to mature as individuals.

The Christchurch Girls’ High School

vision ensures our young women

appreciate the rich heritage of tradition,

recognise the necessity of innovation

and understand that excellence should

be a part of all that they do. Young

women who realise that “excellence is

not an act but a habit.”

We want a Christchurch Girls’ High

graduate to remain open to possibility

and seize opportunity so that her

future is not predetermined by others.

Instead, we want her to have the skills,

qualifications and experiences that

allow her the freedom to create her own

destiny.

Welcome to Christchurch

Boys’ High School

Altiora Peto – I Seek Higher Things

Welcome to Christchurch Boys’ High

School. This is a great place to learn and

we have a history of over 130 years of

educating boys to be fine young men. We

have high expectations of our boys and

strong relationships with them.

Academic success and moral strength

are considered paramount, and our

boys excel across academic, cultural

and sporting fields. We value tradition,

we honour excellence, we teach values

and we celebrate success in a school

environment that cares for student

welfare, recognises cultural diversity

and meets the learning needs of a wide

range of students.

Our rich history includes Old Boys, who

have made their mark in the worlds

of the military, the arts and culture,

commerce, law, community service

and sport. We have close ties with our

very supportive and active community,

and we are proud of our place in New

Zealand education.

Our success in academic, sporting and

cultural fields is due to a desire to make

a difference to all of our young men’s

achievement. The staff of Christchurch

standing alongside our students and

supporting them to high standards of

performance and character.

The fine young man mission of the

Burnside High School

Welcome to the new school year; and

a special welcome to all new students,

families and staff members who start

their association with the Burnside

community in 2017. I look forward to

meeting you all as the year progresses.

I want all people at Burnside to feel that

they are part of something bigger than

themselves; and for the school to be a

place that allows students and staff to

thrive, be challenged, and become high

performers. I want a culture where

“excellence is not an act, but a habit” …

a culture of high performance.

We offer a wide range of opportunities

through quality learning experiences

both inside and outside the classroom.

We aim to engage, challenge and

support you to improve your all-round

achievement and your personal and

interpersonal skills; all within a culture

based on personal excellence and

care for others. It is this culture that

underpins Burnside’s success.

Our school motto - Recte sic dirige

cursum - Along this path direct your

journey correctly is linked to the

historical significance of the cabbage

trees that stand so proudly on our

grounds. They are a landmark in the

local landscape and have been used for

centuries as a guiding point.

And to the students, I hope you will feel

guided through Burnside High School -

that you will attain the qualifications you

are capable of and that you need, and

that you develop the personal qualities

and confidence to choose the right

pathways in life. Above all else……enjoy

your “cabbage tree years”.

I look forward to working with, for and

alongside you all in 2017.

Our 2016 Head Prefects, Rachel Malden

and Joel Williams said “get involved and

make the most of the many and diverse

opportunities Burnside offers, make a

habit of being the best you can be, and to

finish Year 13 with no regrets”.

Phil Holstein, Principal

St Bede’s on academic surge

St Bede’s enters the new school year

on a high after unprecedented academic

success in 2016.

Eighteen St Bede’s students have been

offered 29 awards from universities

around the country. This is the largest

number of offers ever made to the

school.

Two of last year’s seniors, Ben Mattingly

and Justin Lee, received a prestigious

University of Otago scholarship worth

$45,000.

Another student, Oliver Davidson,

was offered the University of Otago

Performance Entrance Scholarship

valued at $16,000 over three years.

Oliver had roles in several professional

productions around the city in 2016,

including Evita, Hairspray and Mamma

Mia.

Ben Mattingly.

Back to

Last year was the first time St Bede’s

students were offered the Otago

University scholarship. The university’s

Academic Excellence Entrance

Scholarship recognize exceptional

academic ability and proven leadership

capabilities.

Otago University received well over 3000

applications for its scholarships.

St Bede’s rector Justin Boyle says the

school’s scholarship successes is the

result of a sustained focus on academic

achievement within the school.

Among the offers to St Bede’s students,

hearing impaired high achiever, Jack

Dixon, was awarded $35,000 from two

scholarships for tertiary study.

“We are delighted with the achievements

of the past year. It’s a credit to the boys

and the staff and we hope to only build

on that excellence in 2017.”

Oliver Davidon.

2017 edition

Mairehau High School

Throughout 2015 and 2016, our

fantastic Year 9 cohorts have been on a

learning adventure exploring projectbased

learning during 'Flexible Learning

Time' or 'FLT' for short.

For three periods a week our

students have self-selected, planned,

implemented and reflected on some

really interesting, rich and fruitful

projects and, as a result, had some

amazing cross-curricular and authentic

learning experiences!

As of Term 4, this exciting learning

model is now part of both our Year 9 and

10 curriculum. For their final project

this year, our Year 9 and 10 students

were challenged to complete a project

within the theme of being selfless. The

very week that this project was due

to commence, the North Canterbury

earthquakes hit.

As a community that was severely

impacted by the Christchurch

earthquakes, our students felt an

immense amount of empathy toward

those affected in Kaikoura and Waiau.

Students and staff worked together to

weave the amazing ideas of our students

into a common thread, and our final

project was established. It was decided

to hold an ‘All Stars Charity Basketball

Game & Fete’ at school, with our

wonderful, selfless students organising

and running the whole event, and

making food products, goods and crafts

to sell.

We were lucky enough to have some

local sports stars from the codes

of rugby, rugby league, cricket and

basketball join us for the friendly match.

The school is immensely proud of the

efforts of our students and staff, as this

Bowers Builders

Renovations and house levelling has

long been a speciality of Bowers Builders.

Their team of five builders has 90 years

of collective experience in the industry,

with owners Johnnie and Amanda directly

involved in the management of every

project.

“We will take on the jobs that are outside

the box – nothing is too hard,” say Amanda,

who meets all new clients with Johnnie to

talk over their specific building situation.

“Once we start work on the job our client’s

hardest decision should just be choosing the

paint colour.”

Clear and honest communication is

integral to their business, with all work

completed to a very high standard that will

last over time. From a new garage floor that

is complicated due to land conditions, an

almost complete renovation of an inner city

cottage, to demanding hill sites that require

helicopter access, Amanda and Johnnie

work together to come up with a realistic

solution for all involved.

They are well used to working with a

range of agencies and specialists such as

structural and geotechnical engineers, and

have reliable sub-contractors to complete

any electrical, plumbing, complex brick

work and roofing work.

“We say that anything can be done – some

things just take longer than others,” says

Amanda.

Fashion

Bringing the doll house to life

• By Annabelle Dick

NOT MANY people can

claim Playboy bunnies have

worn their clothing – but

32-year-old St Martins

designer Sophia Lee can.

Ms Lee is the face behind

Living Dolls, a company

consisting of clothing, lingerie,

make up and couture

furniture.

Her dress-up style clothing

has had so much success it’s

been worn on the New Zealand

television show Outrageous

Fortune and by Playboy

bunnies at the infamous

Playboy Mansion.

Now she’s preparing to open

her first ever store Living

Dolls Emporium in Christchurch.

What started out as a

Barbie-inspired fashion line,

has turned into a way of living

for Ms Lee and her ‘dolls’.

“Living Dolls has grown

into a lifestyle brand. It’s not

just the runway shows with

wings, glitter and candy

anymore. It’s turned into a

company where I have various

brands and product lines so

I thought why not open the

doors?” she said.

Ms Lee is working to

open her Waltham-based

emporium which will include

her own lines; Living Dolls

PRETTY IN PINK: A mother and daughter (left) wear

Sophia Lee’s couture pieces for a family photo shoot

while Jordan Demi Gledhill (right) models Ms Lee’s

commercial clothing brand Dolly & Tonic.

STRIKING: Sophia Lee (left) is working to open the Living Dolls Emporium with Shauva

Thoms (above) in Waltham next month.

Lingerie, Dolly & Tonic

Clothing and Vanity Vaccine

Cosmetics.

She’s also collaborated with

James Saunders to create a

range of one-off furniture

pieces called Doll Haus Boutique

Furniture & Decor.

There’s a common theme

throughout Ms Lee’s products

in that they’re all costumelike,

novelty pieces you’d expect

to find in Barbie’s dream

house.

Ms Lee, who now has a collection

of 200 Barbie dolls, has

been inspired by the doll scene

ever since she introduced to it

as a child.

“It started when I was very

young. I was a bit weird and

I didn’t have many friends so

I’d play with my Barbie dolls

alone and would re-do all

their make up and make all

their outfits,” she said.

“Barbie became my best

friend so when I started fashion

at Design & Arts College it

was like I was playing Barbie

but with a model. I was heavily

inspired by as Barbie as a

kid and never really grew out

of it,” she said.

Most of her lingerie sets are

custom couture pieces that

require hand-crafting, detailing,

and boning – work that

takes a steady hand and a lot

of patience.

That has also inspired her

to eventually start her own

fashion course.

“With couture you’re working

with plume, lace and a lot

of wire and it’s really fiddly.

Because of that I’m looking to

develop a design programme

for emerging fashion designers

as I’ve been wanting to

grow by brand but I’ve struggled

to find people that have

the skill set to make couture

pieces,” Ms Lee said.

Theatre/Arts

Director role for veteran actor

In Brief

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

LONG-TIME Riccarton Players

member Alistair Bean has

done everything in theatre

from performing in England to

working as a extra on TVNZ’s

comedy series of McPhail and

Gadsby.

Now, after acting in Riccarton

Players shows for more than 30

years, Bean, 53, will debut as a

director.

The theatre group will start

the year with a “thrill” bringing

Ted Tiller’s adaptation of Bram

Stoker’s novel Dracula back from

the dead.

“I did this show in Invercargill

in 1997 and it is written that well

that I thought if I had the opportunity

to direct, this is the show I

wanted to do,” he said.

Bean first became involved

with the Riccarton Players 31

years ago with the Riccarton

Players’ 25th Anniversary

production in 1985 of play The

Miracle Worker.

With aspirations to make performing

a full-time career in his

early 20s, Bean first gave it crack

in Britain.

He was going to perform in

a Christmas pantomime in

Southend, London for a year but

was soon told the show was only

professional for seven weeks.

LIFE IN THE ARTS: Alistair

Bean has been acting for

more than 30 years. In 1984

(left) he was a member of

street gang the Jets for

the Christchurch Operatic

Society’s production of

Westside Story in 1984. Now

he will debut as a director

with the Riccarton Players

in the production of Count

Dracula. (Right) – Rehearsals

for the show.

“I was only 23 at the time and a

little bit young in the ways of the

world so it all became a bit intimidating

so I went home,” he said.

But determined to continue

with the arts as well as delve into

a career in finance, Mr Bean performed

with numerous theatre

companies in the city including

Canterbury Children’s Theatre

and The Christchurch Operatic

Society – now known as Showbiz

Christchurch.

He now has his own business

Alistair Bean & Assoc’s Financial

Services Ltd based in St Albans.

He said his most memorable

performance was a matinee show

of Les Miserables at the Isaac

Theatre Royal in 1994 when a 6.7

earthquake struck Arthur’s Pass.

“We had a revolver on stage

and thought these were the best

special effects we have ever had,”

he said.

He said the whole theatre was

evacuated and the performers

were out on the street in their

make up.

The old chandelier in the

theatre was swinging a hundred

and eighty degrees...we had 400

stage lights above us and any of

them could have come down but

none of them did fortunately,”

he said.

One of his other memorable

shows was working with New

Zealand comedians David

McPhail and Jon Gadsby on their

political satire show, where he

was everything from a marching

girl to an All Black.

“I think the only thing that

hinders a lot of talent in New

Zealand is our lack of population

to pay a living professional wage,

otherwise would have many

more people choosing it as an

occupation,” he said.

•Count Dracula will run

through to January 28 at the

Open Stage Theatre, 510

Hagley Ave. To book tickets

phone 338 4699 or go to

www.riccartonplayers.co.nz

The Court Theatre’s summer

production of Jack and the

Beanstalk brings to life all

the beloved characters of the

original tale – the daring and

adventurous Jack, his best

friend Daisy the Cow, and

of course Blunderbore the

hungry giant. The show will

run to January 28. It will have

a relaxed performance on

January 28 to accommodate

children with an Autism

Spectrum Condition, sensory

and communication and

learning disabilities. For more

information go to https://

a cappella academy is holding

auditions for performers to

join their 2017 programme.

Stroll around in a Hong Kong stopover

• By Mike Yardley

GAZING OUT across the azure hues of

Victoria Harbour from the Four Seasons

Hong Kong, the hotel’s PR Director, Amy

Powell, was extolling the virtues of the

hiking trails on both sides of the harbour.

Surprisingly, 70 per cent of Hong Kong

is protected green space. Behind Kowloon,

the 100km-long MacLehose trail fans

across the New Territories, like a wide

veranda. If you’re up for a salivating section

of the trail, plump for stage five, which

encompasses historic artefacts and wild

monkeys.

The first part of the trail is where Commonwealth

troops defended Hong Kong

against the Japanese in World War 2. The

high-point is the extension to Lion Rock,

serving up seraphic panoramas across

Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

Also on stage 5, you’ll encounter the

circus-like theatrics of the wild monkey

colony. Amy also raved about the Dragon’s

Back, a wildly popular escape from the

urban jungle, which starts on Shek O Rd

near To Tei Wan Village.

The trail provides sublime views of Shek

O, Tai Long Wan, Stanley, Tai Tam, and the

South China Sea. It’s an 8km hike and can

easily be knocked off in a few hours.

I recently stopped over for a 24-hour

city’s finest alfresco markets here, touting

all manner of trinkets from opulent Ming

vases to kitsch Chairman Mao statues.

Hong Kong’s fabled wet markets, strung

along narrow old lanes, are sadly disappearing

from the streetscape, given the

eye-watering real estate values the markets

occupy. The wet market, just off Hollywood

Rd, which entails a steep climb, is

lined with raucous fish sellers and oldschool

butchers, where the meat is hung

out on tidy rows of bamboo poles.

and fresh produce. Another great little

lane to trawl through is Li Yuen St East,

studded with traditional little stalls, where

the vendors offer a myriad of services from

shoe repairs to key cutting and printing

services. It’s like a Mister Minit convention

al-fresco-style.

As to the hiking trails, as much as I

was motivated to lace up my boots, the

sumptuous surrounds of the Four Seasons,

seduced me from straying too far.

The fine-dining French experience at

Caprice Restaurant was absolutely packed

for lunch. The hotel is proudly home to the

first Chinese chef to receive three Michelin

stars, Hong Kong born and raised Chan

Yan Tak.

Lured 6km out of retirement, Four Seasons

encouraged him to design his dream

kitchen. The hotel’s Chinese restaurant,

Lung King Heen, is faithfully designed

with a feng shui-friendly bamboo garden

and delivers a spectacular Cantonese dim

sum weekend lunch.

It’s booked out three months in advance.

Two thirds of the diners are locals, exemplifying

the cherished Hong Kong tradition of

enjoying weekend lunch with the extended

family. It’s a great authentic encounter.

The hotel also offers fascinating culinaryfocused

walking tours with Chef Tak.

Another enticing venue is the Blue Bar

which serves a superb buffet breakfast and

is lauded for its inventive martinis. It’s a

popular haunt with the after-work crowd.

Four Seasons is the only Hong Kong hotel

with two full-sized outdoor pools.

is the zone you spent most of your time in as it will give you some initial conditioning without the risk of

soreness or muscle strain

2. Steady: this is slightly faster than easy; it can also be called a “firm” pace. It takes a bit more effort to

talk but you can still form sentences without having to take an extra breath

3. Moderately hard: this is the pace where you need that extra breath to finish your sentence. You can still

talk and jog at the same time but it becomes more laborious so you tend to shut up and concentrate more

on your rhythm and holding your pace

We will not discuss the 2 hard zones called hard and very hard. In these zones you can definitely not talk

and you will not be able to keep this pace for very long unless you are a seasoned athlete. In the coming

weeks the beginners group will graduate to being able to jog at a steady pace for a continuous period of

time while the intermediate group will also incorporate a sprinkling of moderately hard work in some of

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

To achieve this goal you need to

develop some awareness around the

basic requirements of exercising for

health and fitness. First and foremost

this has to do with 3 key principles:

1. How often do you train? To improve

your level of health and fitness you will

need to aim for 4 sessions per week. 2

or 3 sessions per week will only maintain

what you have and 1 session per week is

definitely not sufficient.

2. How long are your sessions? The

duration of your sessions will generally

build towards between 30 and 50 minutes

with one longer session of 60-80 minutes.

3. What is the right intensity to train at?

The good thing about the programme

is that all your runs will be done at

submaximal pace, also called conversation

pace. That means a pace where you can

still talk. If you can’t talk you are going

too fast and you are likely to come to a

grinding halt sooner or later.

This programme and accompanying information are

written as a guide only. If you are concerned about

your health at any stage please undergo a health

check with your GP.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Make sure you have comfortable

footwear. This will help your enjoyment

and prevent injury. There are a few

specialised sport shoe wear shops in

Christchurch where the sales people are

trained in assisting you to make the right

choice. Comfort is an important part of

your choice and only you can feel that. If

you have issues with your feet you might

decide to consult a podiatrist to get more

professional advice regarding the best

footwear for you.

In Brief

ARMSTRONG HEADS SOUTH

Marcus Armstrong will go to Teretonga

Park in Invercargill this weekend looking

to build on his opening race win in the

Toyota Racing Series. Armstrong, 16,

won the opening race at Ruapuna last

Saturday before crashing out of Sunday’s

Lady Wigram Trophy race. After the

opening round, he sits fifth in the series

standing on 135 points, 46 behind leader

Richard Verschoor from the Netherlands.

TEEN GOLFERS TOP 10 FINISH

Three Christchurch teenagers had top 10

finishes at the North Island under-19 golf

championship in Hamilton. Hororata’s

Dominic Brettkelly, Christchurch’s

Tom Parker and Russley’s Hiroki

Miya all recorded strong results at the

tournament, which featured the country’s

top young golfers and a handful of

international talent. Brettkelly and Parker

both finished tied for seventh, two shots

off the lead, while Miya finished tied for

10th.

ROONEY TO PLAY IN POLAND

Christchurch basketballer Erin Rooney

has signed with Polish club Artego

Bydgoszcz for the second half of the

Polish league season. Rooney has battled

back to fitness after undergoing knee

surgery early last year. Last year, Rooney

picked up a knee injury playing for Calais

in the French league, an injury which

impacted on her ability to perform at her

best for the Tall Ferns during last year’s

Olympic qualifying campaign. Bydgoszcz

are the reigning Polish league champions

but currently sit seventh in the 12-team

competition with a 7-6 record.

MEDALS FOR BROUGHTON

Up-and-coming athlete Maia Broughton,

who last month broke a 44-year-old

under-16 Canterbury 200m record held

by her coach Bev Peterson, achieved

more success at the weekend’s Colgate

Games in Invercargill. Broughton, 14, of

Rolleston, returned with four gold medals

and was one of five outstanding young

athletes to receive the Colgate-Palmolive

Nick Willis Scholarship Award. The

scholarship earned Broughton a $500

donation to put towards sports gear,

coaching and other resources to help her

toward her goals. Her gold medals were

in the 100m, 200m, 400m and long-jump

events, while she was also part of the

bronze medal-winning Selwyn Athletic

Club relay team.

Former snooker champion

set to serve it up on court

• By Gordon Findlater

THE MAN considered by

many as the country’s greatest

exponent of snooker and

billiards will look to add

another national title to his

collection – this time on the

tennis court.

Dave Meredith is best

known for his 35-year career

in cue sports, which included

four snooker and a record 15

national billiards titles.

This weekend he will go for

his second singles title in the

over 65 category at the Tennis

NZ senior national champs

at the Hagley and Cashmere

tennis clubs.

Meredith played

representative tennis as

a teenager, winning a

Canterbury under-17 singles

title and a secondary school

title with Christchurch Boys’

High School during the 1960s.

He then gave up tennis to

concentrate on snooker and

billiards before retiring early

to focus on introducing his

three sons, Matthew, Tim and

James, to tennis.

The shift could be considered

successful as all three also

went on to win secondary

school titles for CBHS and win

His older son, Matthew, will

join him at this weekend’s

champs, competing in the

plus-35 category.

Wondering how many more

snooker and billiards titles he

could have gone onto win isn’t

something he dwells on.

“I just left it behind and

moved onto a new challenge.

I was quite happy to get out

The two junior’s joined Ko

at her home base in Orlando,

Florida, to learn about what

it takes to reach the top in the

sport. They were also joined by

Kobori will now return

Malibu, California, where she

is on a golf scholarship and

while I was on top. I retired

when I was the New Zealand

billiards champion in 1997.

I didn’t say I was going to

retire, I just put my cue away

and never played again,” said

Meredith.

His competitive nature has

become evident in anything

he attempts. Meredith has run

14 marathons with a personal

best time of 2hr 40min 17sec,

The talented teen made the

move to college in late 2016

after attending Rangiora High

School. Kobori had a successful

year in New Zealand and

Australia before relocating to

the United States.

She won last year’s Queensland

Girls’ Amateur Championship

and finished runner-up

in the half marathon.

He says staying physically

and mentally fit gave him the

edge during his snooker and

billiards days.

The Cashmere Tennis Club

player had his first crack at

the national senior tennis

champs in 2014. He travelled

to Nelson and came home with

both the plus-65 singles and

doubles titles. He returned to

the champs in Napier last year,

where he captured his second

doubles title and was runnerup

in the singles.

He is confident of securing

a third doubles title on home

soil with fellow Cashmere

teammate Max Morrison, but

knows he will have to be at

his absolute best to challenge

defending champion Quentin

Maisey in the singles, who is

ranked ninth in the world for

plus-65.

“He gave me a bit of a dustup

last year but in saying

that he played extremely well

very well against him, that will

be the key,” said Meredith.

TM

• By Ross Kiddie

ELEGANCE, STYLE and

performance don’t always

go hand-in-hand in motor

vehicle manufacture.

But Korea’s Kia

Corporation has certainly

done that with the new

mid-to-large sedan, the

Optima. Well, when I say

new, the Optima is mostly

all new, it has a new chassis

and it is bigger than before,

but it looks little different,

it still has the same sleek

body style, and the latest

iteration builds on those

values I’ve just mentioned.

The Optima reeks of

flair and fashion, it sits

low and it has a body style

that oozes desire, that

element is also carried over

to the interior, the entire

car has had a refresh with

a renewed emphasis on

quality trim and materials.

There is little difference

in price either, in fact it

could well be cheaper

than the outgoing model

depending on specification.

Limited specification

comes in at $48,990; for

that money the Optima

comes well specced, major

features include satellite

navigation, radar cruise

control, full leather trim

with heated front seats with

electric seat adjustment,

heated steering wheel and

paddle shift gearbox.

It’s fair to say, though, the

evaluation car was top spec,

an EX variant sits $3200

below that and it would

probably be my choice

given it doesn’t miss out on

much and it has cloth trim

which is my preference.

All that aside, both

variants get a 2.4-litre

petrol engine. It’s not a new

unit, but I wouldn’t be at

all surprised if has had a

bit of a makeover in terms

of refinement, such is the

quiet and sophisticated

way the Optima drives,

the engine is a major

part of the hushed way

in which the car travels.

And as I eluded to in my

KIA OPTIMA LTD: Design flair oozes desire.

introduction, the Optima

isn’t short on performance.

Rated at 138kW and

241Nm, the twin-camshaft,

16-valve unit has plenty

of urge. It drives through

the low and close ratios

of a six-speed automatic

gearbox, together the

driveline promotes swift

acceleration and easy

momentum when it

reaches the driver’s desired

speed.

• Price – Kia Optima

Ltd, $48,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4855mm;

width, 1860mm;

height, 1465mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

2359cc,

138kW, 241Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage –

8.3l/100km

It’s hard to detect how

hard the engine is working,

for a big block fourcylinder

it is uncannily

subdued, and even under

acceleration sound is well

isolated from the cabin.

Unfortunately, my testing

time was cut a little short,

an engine maintenance

warning light flicked up on

the dash during the time

the test car was in my care,

so I was very circumspect

as to how I drove the car,

and how far.

That aside, the engine

has a lot of usable torque

SMOOTH: The Optima has a sleek body style.

through the mid range

which means it is happy

slugging it out in the

areas where fuel use is

minimised.

Kia claims an 8.3-litre

per 100km (34mpg)

combined cycle average for

the Optima and that figure

is quite realistic, during

my time with the test car

the fuel usage readout

was constantly listing

around 9l/100km (31mpg)

along with a 6l/100km

(47mpg) figure available

instantaneously at 100km/h

(engine speed 1700rpm).

The Optima cruises

beautifully, it has a

plush ride and sound is

deadened. Kia has utilised

a fully independent,

front stunt/rear multiple

link set-up. I like these

arrangements, the rear

wheels have freedom and

springs and shocks are

allowed to do their job

unimpeded. Mid-corner

bumps are dealt to without

deviation off-line, while

at the other end steerage

is direct and turn-in is

accurate.

Riding on high quality

Michelin Pilot rubber

(235/45 x 18in), the sport

specification tyres have

strong grip properties

along with little sound.

They are also partly

responsible for the strong

steering feel, the driver

is fully involved with the

handling process.

Creating a new car and

building on the success

of its predecessor is a

complicated and difficult

process, but Kia has always

done that well, and the

Optima is a good example

of how sophisticated the

modern sedan has come

to be.

It’s just a pity that

the sedan market in

languishing in an age

where a buyer’s first choice

is generally a sport utility

vehicle. Good cars like

the Optima deserve to do

better.

WORDBUILDER

I S E N T

How many words of three or more letters can you

make, using each letter only once? Plurals are

allowed, but no foreign words or words beginning

with a capital. There’s at least one five-letter word.

Good 15 Very Good 20 Excellent 24

SUDOKU

322

Fill the grid so that every row,

every column and every 3x3

box contains the digits 1 to 9.

HOW TO PLAY

It’s like sudoku: each

vertical and horizontal

line has to contain

the numbers 1-6, and

the numbers can’t be

repeated in any row or

column.

But it’s sudoku with a

twist: The numbers in

each heavily outlined

set of squares, called

cages, must produce the

number in the top corner.

For example, 5+ means

the numbers add up to 5,

9x means the numbers

multiply to equal 9.

TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the

same line or row.

ADVICE

for maintaining

your home

As most New Zealanders’ homes are their

biggest investments it’s important to protect

them. Good maintenance will:

• Keep your home safe and secure

• Keep you and your family healthy

• Save you money by allowing you to fix

problems before they get bigger

• Protect your financial investment

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO

APPROACH MAINTENANCE?

Carry out regular preventative maintenance

to prevent some problems from occurring.

MAINTAINING YOUR HOME

Plan ahead for major maintenance tasks.

Be prepared for emergencies – know where

and how the water, gas and power supplies

turn off.

DIY OR PROFESSIONAL?

You need to be realistic about your limits. It is

CHECKLIST FOR

SELLING YOUR HOME

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes, and correct

the flaws that are most egregious (if affordable) or can

be relatively easily fixed—from repairing cracks in the

walkways to repainting dingy walls or oiling creaky

hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a market analysis free

of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties similar to yours that

have sold in the past six months.

Check out comparable listings yourself in the real

estate section of your newspaper or on websites.

Then decide whether you want a quick, easy sale or

the highest possible price.

NEW LISTINGS

better to hire a tradesperson and get the job

done properly than to make costly mistakes.

By law, some jobs need to be done by

a professional, such as gas, plumbing,

drainage and some electrical work. Major

maintenance matters.

MOISTURE

Damp homes are unhealthy and harder to

heat. Combat persistent damp in your home

by:

• Insulating (under the floor, in the ceiling

and walls).

• Ventilating (including extractor fans in

bathrooms and kitchens, opening

windows, using a dehumidifier or

forced ventilation system and

keeping vents clear).

• Heating (aim to keep the indoor

temperature at a minimum of 16C).

• Replacing unflued gas heaters with

electric or flued gas heaters.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture, knicknacks, and “stuff”—

toss it, donate it, give it away, sell it at a yard sale,

or put it into storage—so the house seems more

spacious and buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start showing your house, keep

the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded,

rooms spotless and clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh flowers or

bowls of fruit, bake a batch of cookies for the homey

smell, open the drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially with older homes,

to identify—and potentially solve—problems your

buyer’s inspection will discover later.

Your Earthquake

damaged home!

selling your “As is Where is” home.

NOTICE OF PROHIBITION OF FIRES IN THE OPEN AIR WITHIN THE

CITY OF CHRISTCHURCH

(IMPOSED PURSUANT TO SECTION 13 OF THE CHRISTCHURCH URBAN FIRE

SAFETY BYLAW 2014)

Notice is hereby given that the prohibition on fires in the open air over those parts of the district which are fire district

declared or constituted under Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 is imposed by Clause 13 of the Christchurch Urban

Fire Safety Bylaw 2014 for the period from midnight Saturday 14 January 2017 until further notice.

The prohibition applies to those parts of the district which are a Fire District declared as constituted under Section

26 of the Fire Service Act 1975 and these are Brooklands, New Brighton, Sumner, Lyttelton, Governors Bay, Diamond

Harbour, Little River and Akaroa and Christchurch Urban Fire Districts (where District is defined as meaning “for which

the Council is the territorial authority”). The Council may extend the prohibition.

During any such prohibition no person shall light any fire in the open air and no person being the occupier of any

premises shall cause, permit, or suffer any such fire to be lit there or to continue to burn there. The penalty for such

an offence is a fine of up to $20,000.

The purpose of the prohibition is to conserve public safety by preventing danger from fire.

Note: The Council may at any time, where in its opinion special reason exists or may exist to prevent the outbreak or

spread of fire, prohibit the lighting of fires in the open air for any specified additional period of time within all or any

districts of the city as listed above.

This prohibition does not apply to:

1. Any barbeque, pizza oven or hangi provided:

(a) it is not likely to constitute a danger to any person or property by reason of its location, risk of spread, inadequate

containment, prevailing wind or otherwise; and

(b) there is immediately available a pressurised water supply connected to a hose; and

(c) it is adequately supervised.

2. Any fire in the open air in respect of which the occupier of the land upon which the fire is situated has obtained from

the Council an exemption from the prohibition.

Exemptions may, under Section 15 of the Bylaw, be granted in exceptional circumstances in that:

(a) the fire is urgently required to prevent, reduce or overcome any hazard to life, health, property or the environment; and

(b) the use of fire is the most efficient and effective means to reduce any risk of hazard to life, health, property

or the environment.

Applications for exceptions may be made in writing to the Regulatory Compliance Unit, Civic Offices, PO Box 73049

Christchurch 8154 or at any Council Service Centre. The issue of an exemption is not a legal defence against claims for

damage arising by reason of the fire. The responsibility for its control and liability for any damage which may arise lies

with the person lighting the fire.
