Kidney dream comes true

• By Emily O’Connell

PLUCKY teenager Maddie

Collins was operated on

yesterday after a potentially

lifesaving kidney became

available.

Maddie, 14, and her family

were told at 11pm on Tuesday

their five-year wait for a kidney

match had been found.

They flew from Christchurch

to Auckland early yesterday

morning and Maddie underwent

the operation at Starship

Children’s Health at 1pm.

“This is surreal. Is it going to

work? Wow, what a miracle,”

Maddie’s mother Sarah Manson-Collins

said yesterday.

The family will know within

days if the transplant has been

successful.

Mrs Manson-Collins told The

Star it can take up to a month

for a transplanted kidney to start

working.

The concern with Maddie

is she is at a high risk of her

disease rearing up again and

shutting the new kidney down.

We will know within days if this

is the case,” she said.

Maddie will now spend about

three months at Starship recovering.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

Maddie cried on Tuesday night

when she was told of the kidney.

THAT’S AMAZING news

the front page today – Maddie

Collins may have got the

kidney she desperately needs to

potentially stay alive.

The operation at Auckland’s

Starship was scheduled to go into

early evening (after The Star was

sent off to the printer). So fingers

crossed everything went well.

It has been a very long journey

for Maddie and her family and

even with the transplant operation

yesterday it is far from over.

The first step will be if

Maddie’s body actually accepts

the kidney. Then there will be

a wait to see if the kidney functions

and then whether the new

kidney works.

Let’s hope Maddie and her

family get the good news in a few

months they desperately seek.

Another good story on page 3

Fire rages, homes at risk

Surfing success all in the family

• By Gordon Findlater

IT WAS a family vacation which

turned into a national medal

haul for Donna Henderson,

Ava Henderson and Estella

Hungerford at the national surf

championships in Gisborne last

week.

The highlight of the week was

when Donna and Ava created

history by becoming the first

mother and daughter combo to

win titles at the same national

championships.

The family tie doesn’t end

there . . . Donna also made it

to the women’s longboard final

where she lined up against

Estella, who is also her stepdaughter.

The Taylors Mistake family left

for Gisborne in their campervan

on January 4.

“We got to Gizzy and it was

pumping. It was six foot plus on

the first day of the competition,”

said Donna.

The 43-year-old had the highest

score overall of 10.2 in the

women’s senior event, which

saw her take gold in the over 40

category. Her daughter Ava won

the girls under-14 final with a

score of 13.7.

“Essentially, I won the oldest

title and Ava won the youngest

which is quite special,” said

Donna.

While tasting her own success

was sweet, the highlight for the

proud mum was watching Ava

secure her first national title.

“It was great. She came pretty

close last year in Piha but was

the bridesmaid so this year she

was pretty determined to win.”

“Straight off the buzzer she

got a really good wave and

then she just kept backing it

up so it was really awesome to

watch.”

Donna – who is the founder

of the Christchurch School of

Surf at Sumner Beach – began

surfing in her early 20s and won

her first national title at the age

of 42 in 2017. Ava on the other

hand rode her first board at six

and has now already claimed her

YOUNG GUN: Ava Henderson won her first national title in the girls under 14.

SURF’S UP: Estella Hungerford finished second in the women’s longboard and fourth in the

girls under 16.

first national crown at the age of

just 12.

“She’s doing pretty well and

she does want to be a pro surfer.

We’ll see how that goes.”

There was more of a

competitive element to her

step-daughter’s success when

Donna and Estella met in the

longboard final.

“Both of us were going headto-head

in the longboard. I was

coming second but in the last

minute Estella got a bomb from

out the back and pipped me.”

“I was really happy for her.”

Estella also finished fourth in

the girl’s under-16 final.

There could be a third Henderson

gunning for a national

title in the not too distant future

as well. Donna’s son Travis is

eight and recently took up surfing

competitively.

“He’s certainly got a bit of a

taste for it, so we’re hoping to

add another one.”

In Brief

CRASH VICTIM A PRIEST

The man killed in a crash on

Monday was the assistant priest

at Our Lady of Victories Parish

on Main South Rd, Sockburn.

Father Graeme Joseph Blackburn,

33, died after a collision

between a motor-cycle and a

vehicle on Purau Port Levy

Rd, Purau, at about 5.30pm.

Father Blackburn had only been

ordained in July last year. The serious

crash unit is investigating

the incident. A vigil for Father

Blackburn is to be held on Friday

at Our Lady of Victories Church.

The Requiem Mass will be held

on Saturday at St Mary’s Pro-

Cathedral on Manchester St.

VEHICLE BREAK-INS

A man was arrested after being

“grabbed” by onlookers as he

allegedly broke into vehicles in

Cashmere. Police responded to

the incident on Hunter Tce at

about 11.54am on Tuesday. “It

would appear he was breaking

into cars so some people have

grabbed him and phoned

police,” a police communications

spokesman said.

SPORTS PARK DELAYED

The reopening of Sydenham

Park has been delayed for a

fourth time due to wet and

extreme weather conditions.

City council neighbourhood and

sports parks operation manager

Al Hardy said the work to install

four cricket blocks and three

sand carpet playing fields will

be completed by April 1. The

work started in April last year.

Originally the park was meant to

be finished by July, but that was

pushed back to October, then

February, and now April.

Kidney for Maddie

•From page 1

“She knows it’s going

to be rough but she also

knows this is the best thing

for her,” Mrs Manson-

Collins said.

Maddie suffers from

kidney disease, nephrotic

syndrome, of which there

was only about a two per

cent chance of finding a

match in New Zealand.

Maddie received a kidney

transplant from her father

Adam Collins five years

ago but her body rejected

it. Mrs Manson-Collins is

hopeful it will be different

this time.

The team up here

wouldn’t have offered it to

Maddie if they didn’t think

it was the right thing to

do,” she said.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

it is likely Maddie’s disease

will return following the

kidney transplant.

Starship knows what

to do to control it, it just

makes it a lot harder on

Maddie,” she said.

The family did not expect

to be able to find a kidney

match in New Zealand.

They were planning a

trip to The John Hopkins

Hospital in Baltimore,

United States, which had

been looking at new kinds

of transplants, to find a

match.

They have spent years

fundraising to try and get

Maddie to the US, which

included the auction of a

drawing by former Prime

Minister Bill English.

Since her diagnosis,

Maddie has undergone

more than 50 operations,

been on life support twice,

had both kidneys removed,

one failed transplant and

undergoes dialysis every

night.

Mrs Manson-Collins said

they feel for the family who

lost their loved one, but

they were also really grateful

for the donation.

There’s a family grieving

and we’d just love them to

know that this kidney is

going into a really special

child that’s going to make

a difference in this world,”

she said.

Hinkley case: ‘I’m not saying anything’

THE MAN who said police

accused him of murdering his

neighbour Richard Hinkley is

now refusing to talk publicly.

The Star revealed last week

police believe Mr Hinkley, who

disappeared two years ago, could

have been murdered, a property

had been searched and a suspect

identified.

Mr Hinkley, who was 49 when

he disappeared, was last seen

at Kiwibank in Edgeware on

December 12, 2015.

Dion Louvain Lawrence was

arrested by police in December

and charged with stealing from

Mr Hinkley’s home.

Lawrence told news media

after The Star article was

published, police had accused

him of taking a laptop from

Mr Hinkley’s Madras St flat

next door, and pawning it after

he reported him missing in

February 2016.

When The Star visited

Lawrence at his flat on Tuesday,

he would not open the door

and said he had nothing more

to say.

“I would rather not say anything,”

he said.

Last week, Lawrence told news

media: “They did over my flat,

kicked me out for two days, dug

up my garden and went through

everything, took half my stuff

away.”

Detective Inspector Corrie

Parnell said last week calling the

case a homicide investigation

was premature and there were a

number of persons of interest in

what was still a missing person

inquiry.

Mr Hinkley was 1.84m tall,

and of solid build, and had a

shaved head when he was last

seen. He often wore a beanie or

of Mr Hinkley reported since he

It is understood Mr Hinkley

was an only child and lived with

his parents until they separated

when he was 17.

His father now lives in Australia

and his mother died in

Crash victim trust seeks funding

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Bridget Rutherford

A MEETING was held yesterday

to discuss funding options

for the charitable trust which

organises a remembrance day to

honour those killed in crashes on

Canterbury roads.

It comes after the city council

rejected its funding application

last year.

The Road Traffic Accident

Trauma Charitable

Trust applied for $56,500

last year to run its annual

Road Accident Remembrance

Day, as well as

several other projects.

It required about

$15,000 for the November

4 remembrance day. The

remainder would have

gone to its counselling and

support services, an awareness

campaign, and the establishment

of a paid full-time general manager

role.

City council staff categorised

its application as a lower priority

than others.

In September, city councillors

approved more than $1 million

of funding for projects from its

2017/18 Strengthening Communities

Fund, but the trust was

not one of those. City councillor

Aaron

Keown

Aaron Keown, who is the MC for

the remembrance day, said yesterday’s

meeting was attended by

trust representatives, himself and

city council transport operations

manager Aaron Haymes.

“It was a discussion on what’s

the best way forward for them

to get funding. How could we

potentially support the event?”

Cr Keown said.

“We didn’t even talk

about figures yesterday.”

Trust founder Sarah

Dean said the city council

approached the trust

because it wanted to support

the remembrance

day. She said at the

meeting specific funding

strands were identified.

The trust is not

government-funded and solely

relies and proactively seeks sponsorship,

grants and donations

to assist with its operational

expenses.”

Ms Dean said it was “disheartening”

when funding

applications were declined, but

it worked hard to ensure its operational

expenses were covered

through other funding.

Cr Keown was the MC for the

event because his mother Laureen

Reilly was killed when a boy

including the three teenagers killed in the 2016 Boxing Day

crash near Leeston, were honoured at the Road Accident

racer crashed into the vehicle

she was in on Main North Rd in

May 2008. He said it was “disappointing”

and “embarrassing”

the city council had not provided

financial backing to the trust.

City council head of

community support, governance

and partnerships Lester Wolfreys

said last year’s application, which

was categorised priority three,

met the criteria, but to a “lesser

extent” than those in priorities

one and two.

Other organisations to receive

grants from the fund included

priority two Gap Filler, which

received $7500, priority one

Volunteering Canterbury with

$40,000 and the priority two

New Zealand Vegetarian Society

Christchurch Branch, which got

$6750.

“Whoever had decided the

priority on it didn’t know the

value of the event and the work

the trust does throughout the

year,” Cr Keown said.

The remembrance day in

Hagley Park honours those

killed on Canterbury roads the

year prior, crash survivors, and

those involved in post-crash

recovery and responses.

Ms Dean set up the trust after

she survived two crashes. It also

offers counselling, advocacy and

advice for those impacted by

road accidents.

At the last year’s remembrance

day, Mark Moore spoke of how

he lost his 15-year-old daughter

Lily in a car accident near

Leeston on Boxing Day 2016.

The crash also killed two of his

daughter’s friends.

The trust is seeking

sponsorship for the

Road Accident

Remembrance Day. If you

Dean on roadtraffictrauma@

street artist known as Dcypher

said even now painting murals

at the city’s airport doesn’t seem

“small time.”

Ellis has been back in town

from Los Angeles where he has

lived for the past decade to work

on a series of murals outside

the Christchurch International

Airport with street art group Oi

YOU!

It was in the United States

where he was offered the opportunity

to work on a graffiti

mural for Fox’s hit show Sons of

Anarchy.

my work up,” he said.

Another career highlight was

heading to Dubai to paint a

portion of the world’s longest

graffiti wall, which is 2km long,

for the Guinness Book of World

Records.

“It was a false wall in the shape

of the United Arab Emirates.

There were hundreds of artists

there from all over the world,” he

said.

Including some of Ellis’ long

time idols that inspired him to

take up the art form.

“That was a highlight. Working

with some of the super famous

guys from New York who

pioneered street art on subway

trains.”

But with the city’s street art

boom following the February 22,

2011, earthquake, Ellis has been

spending more and more time at

Some nights they’ve been there

Mr Shaw said.

But Ellis assures that this

doesn’t feel “small time” compared

to his work overseas – a lot

of his work is scattered around

the city, including a mural on the

side of the Wharenui Swimming

Pool and Sports Centre in Riccarton.

“It’s just as fun and it’s

important. Especially after

the earthquake,” he said.

“Christchurch is always going to

be my home.”

Mr Shaw said he and Ellis were

given three reference points by

the airport to base the concepts

for the murals on. “Our airport,

our city, our island.”

The bench murals are one of

several collaborations between Oi

be back later in the year to start

work on the second piece.

Museum buys polar explorers medals

CANTERBURY Museum has

acquired medals and two diaries

belonging to Tryggve Gran, the

Norwegian skiing expert on the

British Antarctic Expedition.

The museum successfully bid at

auction in London for four medals

awarded to Gran, who died

in 1980, and two of the journals

he wrote during his time in

Antarctica.

It paid £105,000 for the medals

and diaries, which have recently

arrived in Christchurch.

In addition to the Polar Medal

Gran was awarded in July 1913

as a member of the expedition,

the museum has acquired three

medals awarded for his service in

World War 1 – the Military Cross

(UK), the Legion of Honour

(France) and the Order of the

Crown of Italy.

Museum director Anthony

Wright said it was pleased with

the price it paid for the items, and

they were of world-wide interest

and importance.

“Tryggve Gran’s medals and

diaries contribute to the museum’s

knowledge of the ill-fated

expedition and this chapter of

Gran’s fascinating life as an explorer,

aviator and author.”

Chosen by Robert Falcon Scott

POLAR HISTORY: Tryggve Gran’s Military Cross (left) and

Polar Medal with one of his diaries. (Right) – Gran on April 13,

MUSEUM

as an ace skier to train men on

the journey south, Gran was the

youngest member of the 1910-

1913 expedition. He was one

of the 13 expedition members

involved in laying the supply depots

needed for the Polar Party’s

attempt to reach the South Pole

in 1911.

In November 1912, he was

part of the 11-man search party

that found the tent containing

the bodies of Scott and his two

remaining companions.

Gran used his skis to form

a cross over their grave. He

travelled back to the base at Cape

Evan wearing Scott’s skis, so at

least they would complete the

journey. While the Polar Party

had been on the journey to the

South Pole, Gran took part in a

geological expedition to the western

mountains. Before leaving

Antarctica, he climbed Mt Erebus

in December 1912 and Aoraki/

Mt Cook in New Zealand on the

way back to Britain in 1913.

After his Antarctic experience,

Gran became a keen aviator,

serving with the Royal Flying

Corps during WW1. He claimed

to have shot down German ace,

Hermann Göring, in a dogfight,

although this was not proven.

When Norway was occupied

by Germany during WW2, Gran

became a member of the Nationalist

Party.

While Gran was tried and sentenced

to 18 months in prison for

treason after the war, there has

been speculation he feared reprisals

for fighting against Germany

in WW1 and, as a result, his Nazi

sympathies may not have been as

clear cut as previously supposed.

Gran’s son Hermann said his

father lived a very “full life”. He

gave lectures on polar history

and aviation well into his 80s and

“was a bit upset” when he had to

give up driving at the age of 87,

he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Polo comes to Hagley Park

• By Sarla Donovan

THE SPORT of kings is coming

to Hagley Park for the first time

in almost 30 years.

The Armstrong Prestige

Hagley Park Polo tournament

starts on Sunday.

The free event is the brain

child of New Zealand polo

player and event owner, Jimmy

Wood, whose father Roddy runs

the Waireka Polo Centre in

Sefton.

Jimmy and his two brothers

play professional polo. Event

organiser Sophie Gardner said

the Wood family had dreamed

of returning the sport to Hagley

Park and had finally got the goahead

from the city council.

“We’re super excited. There’s

been a lot of rain which has

been good for the ground. And

we’ve got our fingers crossed the

weather is going to be fine.”

It will be part of a two-day

invitational tournament. Hagley

Park will host the tournament

finals on the second day.

Miss Gardner said there

would be marquees and

hospitality tents along one side

of the playing fields while the

other side would be available for

the public to come and spread

a blanket, bring a picnic and

TRADITIONAL: Professional player Jimmy Wood will

compete in the Armstrong Prestige Hagley Park Polo

tournament at the weekend.

enjoy the free entertainment

in the park’s green and leafy

surrounds.

With 16 polo players from

as far afield as Australia and

Uruguay competing, each

bringing nine ponies, there

would be about 140 ponies all

up at the event.

Armstrong Prestige dealer

principal John McKenzie said it

fitted nicely into the city’s social

calendar. “Christchurch needs

an annual event that the public

will get behind. It’s early days,

but we think this could become

one of Christchurch’s premiere

events.”

Mr McKenzie said he had

attended a couple of similar

events in the past.

“I went to one in November

last year and it’s surprising

how many people get behind

it. It’s quite glamorous and I

think it will go well in

Christchurch.”

Miss Gardner said people

didn’t need to own a polo pony

to enjoy the spectacle.

“It’s a really nice summer

social occasion. We don’t want

it to be exclusive – it’s in a public

park and the more people we

have the better the atmosphere.”

The subsidiary polo final will

begin at 12.30pm.

At 1.30pm, The Club

House Marquee Lunch will

take place, and there would be

entertainment on the field for

those in the public area.

At 2.30pm, there will be a

team player parade, followed by

the grand-final at 2.45pm.

During the final’s half-time

break, the traditional divot

stomping will happen and the

Veuve Clicquot Best Dressed

Awards will be presented.

After the final, the prizegiving

will be held at 4pm.

Miss Gardner said the plan

was to hold the event every year,

and grow the sport.

“Our dream is to have quite a

significant prize pool to attract

international teams.”

Roundabout

rabbits spared

• By Bridget Rutherford

RABBITS THAT gained quite the

audience for living in the middle of

busy roundabouts in the red zone

have been spared – for now.

More than 20 rabbits, some of

which are black in colour, have

been spotted on the roundabout

at Anzac Drive, Travis and Frosts

Rds, and the junction of Anzac

Drive and New Brighton Rd.

But they caused traffic concerns,

with motorists driving slowly to

look at them and others parking

and crossing Anzac Drive to get to

the roundabout.

In November, the New Zealand

Transport Agency said the highway

maintenance team was looking to

put a rabbit control operation in

place to deal with the safety issue.

That may have included culling

the rabbits, or catching and

releasing them elsewhere. The idea

sparked outrage, with many saying

to leave the bunnies alone.

But it appears the bunnies will

likely be able to live out their days

on the roundabouts.

“At this stage, the transport

agency is not proposing to do

anything about the rabbits which

are sometimes seen on the state

highway roundabouts through

Brighton/Burwood,” an NZTA

spokeswoman said.

Missy turns up on the web

• By Bridget Rutherford

POLLY, FRANCES or Missy.

Whatever her name, if this

duck could talk, she would have

a quacker tale to tell.

After going missing for about

three weeks, the muscovy duck

was reunited with her Mairehau

owner Gail Reeves.

But little did Ms Reeves know

her Missy had become someone

else’s Polly long before that.

The fouryear-old

fowl

had spent so

much time

in the stream

that runs next

to Merivale’s

Webb St, she

became a

street pet.

Barry Helem

Webb St

resident

Vanessa Irvine said the duck

had been there most days since

December 2014, when ducklings

hatched at neighbour’s were

released into the stream.

Residents named her Polly,

and fed her every day.

But in September, she went

missing. A resident saw a woman

gently pick her up from the

stream and walk away with her.

POPULAR: The SPCA posted a video of the duck on its

Facebook page to try and track down its original owners.

“She had been there for such

a long time I just thought, ‘oh

where’s she gone?’” Ms Irvine

said.

“Not that she’s ours, but we

kind of felt like she was. She was

kind of like a pet to us.”

Ms Irvine said initially the

street wanted to know where she

went and if she was okay.

She was surprised Polly and

Missy were the same duck, as

she was at Webb St so often, and

didn’t appear to fly.

Although they were sad about

not seeing the duck again, at

least she was at home being

looked after, Ms Irvine said.

SPCA southern region general

manager Barry Helem said a

concerned person picked Missy

up thinking she was owned and

missing and asked the SPCA to

collect her.

After posting a video of

the duck, which staff named

Frances, on its Facebook page

and Pets on the Net, the SPCA

received a tip she may belong to

a Webb St address.

“Our staff visited the block of

units at the address provided

GOOD TIMES THIS

SUMMER

and door knocked. Of the eight

units, only one person answered

and stated there was a duck that

has been in the area and is fed

by the neighbours but is not

technically owned,” Mr Helem

said.

The original owner then came

forward to claim the duck.”

Ms Reeves, who owns several

muscovy ducks, turkeys and

chickens, said she was grateful

the Webb St residents helped

look after her.

“I noticed she had gotten a bit

fatter.

“She’d fly in and out, I couldn’t

control her so when I got her

back I clipped one wing.”

She said Missy was full of

personality, and now had two

ducklings.

“She dances and bobs her head

from side to side. It’s like dancing,

she’s like a little rapper.”

It’s not the first time one of Ms

Reeves’ pets had gone missing.

She was reunited with her cat

Thomasa 16 months after she

went missing during the February

22, 2011, earthquake.

Thomasa, originally known as

Thomas, later featured in Quake

Cats: Heartwarming stories of

Christchurch Cats.

$223k for

museum bug

collection

CANTERBURY Museum has

been awarded $223,095 for a

project to catalogue and provide

access to 140,000 invertebrate

specimens.

The money was granted by the

Lottery Grants Board for the second

stage of the project.

Museum research fellow Peter

Johns has collected the specimens

over 57 years. The nationally and

internationally-significant collection

includes craneflies, weta,

millipedes and centipedes from all

over New Zealand.

In 2015, the first phase of the

project was awarded a $203,852

lottery grant. The project team

is on track to catalogue 70,000

records by March and the aim is to

catalogue the second 70,000 specimens

over the next two years.

The data, information and

specimens will be made available

to universities, research organisations

including Landcare and

NIWA, the Department of Conservation,

Ministry for Primary

Industries and regional councils.

Museum director Anthony

Wright said the collection would

add to the current knowledge of

the status of the country’s invertebrate

fauna.

Off-duty

officer’s

suspicion

leads to

arrest

• By Andrew King

AN OFF-DUTY police officer’s

eagle eyes led to a 23-year-old

man appearing in the district

court on Friday.

Nicholas Folster, 23, was arrested

in Papanui at about 11.30pm

on Thursday after the officer spotted

him acting suspiciously on

Matsons Ave.

The offduty officer reported it

and police arrived and arrested

Folster.

He appeared in the district

court on Friday charged with

three counts of entering a building

without authority with the

intent to commit an imprisonable

offence in that building.

The alleged offending happened

on Matsons Ave and Aorangi Rd,

Bryndwr.

Judge John Brandts-Giesen

remanded Folster in custody

without plea until tomorrow for a

bail application hearing.

THRILLERS are the

most popular books with

Christchurch library users, led

by British author Lee Child’s Jack

Reacher novels.

Three Child novels feature in

the top five fiction “checkout”

list, which also includes Paula

Hawkins’ The Girl on the

Train and No Man’s Land by

David Baldacci.

Child’s Night School holds the

top spot. “Readers love a good

thriller, enjoying the intricacies

of a developing plot and all the

twists and turns,” said city council

libraries content manager

Anne Anderson.

These most read lists provide

our staff with greater insights

into the interests of library users,

so we can best meet their reading

needs.”

For the younger readers,

Suzanne Collins still rules the

library shelves with three books

The Hunger Games (No 1),

Catching Fire (No 3) and Mockingjay

(No 5) – in the top five

young adult section.

The dystopian novels of

Suzanne Collins are much loved

by our younger readers as the

teen characters tackle massive

challenges in pursuit of a better

world,” Ms Anderson said.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar

Children by Ransom Riggs

and Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons

Why have also been repeatedly

requested.

Among the youngest book

lovers, The Adventures of Tintin

by Hergé continues to be a pageturner,

Bev Morel

Great grandmother still winning titles

NATIONAL CHAMP: Bev Morel relaxes at her Redwood home

with husband Peter.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Bev Morel showed age is no barrier at the recent national bowls tournament in

Dunedin, winning her third national title at the age of 76 with good friend Sherrie Cottle.

Andrew King speaks to her about life on and off the green

Tell me about winning your

third national crown?

It was most unexpected, we

didn’t think we would win the national

title. Sherrie played amazing

bowls. We had agreed we

would take it one game at a time.

In the first round, we played Sandra

Keith and Serena Matthews,

who are also from Christchurch.

We won but we didn’t expect to.

From then on it was one game at

a time. As the tournament went

on and we progressed through

more and more rounds, we

thought maybe it is our turn to

get through. We played last year’s

winners in the final, Dale Rayner

and Ashleigh Jeffcoat. They had

played great bowls to get there.

Fortunately, my lead [Sherrie]

played outstanding and we combined

to pull it off. We were both

very excited and I was exceptionally

happy for her, it was her first

title. We had come runner-up a

few years back in the fours. It is

still sinking in but we are both

over the moon.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but

you stepped down from the

national scene a while ago?

I stepped down from the

Canterbury representative team

about two years ago and carried

on playing socially and in

national tournaments. There are

a lot of young people coming on

and I thought it was time to step

aside.

Do you still get nervous

before a tournament, even after

competing for almost 37 years?

I was very nervous playing the

first game against Sandra. As

the games went on I got relaxed.

I was very relaxed in the final. I

thought ‘win or lose, we’re in the

final’ and so it allowed me to play

such a nice relaxed game. Sherrie

played so well so it allowed me to

just played my game.

Do you have any rituals before

competing?

No, not really. I do go to sleep

the night before saying ‘I will

play good bowls, I will play good

bowls.’ That way I convince

myself I will play well. Win or

lose, as long as I play well, I’m

happy. The biggest fear we had in

this tournament was getting

thrashed. We didn’t want that to

happen. No one wants a hiding.

And clearly, it worked.

Have you thrown the bowl

with the bias the wrong way

before?

Yes, I have done it in a New

Zealand final in the women’s

fours. I was at my first nationals,

which I won in 1995. Once you

have done it, it is gone. I just told

myself I had to play the next

one well and rolled a toucher so

I redeemed myself. If someone

does it we have a bit of grin and

say bad luck. Usually, we have a

shout. Depending on what they

drink, it is usually wine, spirits

or beer.

If a shout was coming your

way what would you request?

Kahlua or a riesling wine.

What do you look for in a

playing partner?

With nationals, I always play

with friends and teammates from

the club and, if we are compatible,

we just keep playing together.

Sherrie has come and gone from

our club and I have played a lot

with her. I have played with my

sister, Terresa, when we won the

fours in 2006 and I still play with

her in the fours. •Turn to page 20

Fire rages, homes at risk

Morel won’t be ‘giving up anytime soon’

•From page 19

What has kept you playing

bowls for so long?

I love the game, meeting people,

making friends and contacts.

I retired last year and you need

something to keep you occupied

and it has been a fantastic interest

for me. Keeps me out of the

housework. I have a wonderful

daughter that helps.

Where did you work?

I was a nurse’s assistant at Burwood

Hospital for the last 19 and

a half years. I loved every minute

of it. It was fantastic.

Tell me about your fitness regime

to stay in match condition?

I go to the gym three of four

days a week for about 40min a

time. I haven’t been since I got

back from nationals. But I will

get back into it. If you leave it too

long, you will feel it. I don’t put

as much practice in, I used to

practice every day. We are playing

three to four times a week

now so we don’t need to practice

too much. I take a week off before

nationals to get fresh and ready

to roll.

Tell me a bit about your

family?

Well, I am married to my

husband Peter and we have four

children – Darryl Morel, 50,

Susan Dickson, 54, Debbie Morel,

55, and Kevin Morel, 56. I have

five grandchildren and three

great-grandchildren.

There must be some talented

bowlers in that clan?

None of them play. Kevin

played for a few years before he

got married. He is playing golf

now. He played in the nationals

with Peter in the pairs and fours

in 2016. I have had one granddaughter

down the green when

she was 11 or 12 and she was a

natural. But they are not interested

in playing.

You won a national title in

Dunedin in 2006, but that

crown has a special meaning for

you doesn’t it?

My brother died while we were

at the tournament and he told us

to go down and win it for him.

So that will always have a special

meaning. It was just the best. I

will never forget it. We couldn’t

come home not winning that. I

missed his funeral but we won

the title.

Obviously you have your No 1

fan and husband Peter supporting

you, tell me about him?

He is absolutely amazing, especially

in Dunedin this year. He

drove us everywhere, looked after

us. He got soaked one day taking

our bowls to the car. We had just

finished playing and it rained

heavily and he got drenched. He

had to head back to the house

we were renting off a friend and

change his clothes. He has been

so supportive over the years and

we have played a lot together in

tournaments. It is a really special

relationship.

Is it true his legendary scrapbook

detailing your success over

the years started as a school

project by one of your nieces?

My granddaughter, April,

Debbie’s eldest daughter, started

PLAY TO

WIN: Bev

Morel in

action in

Dunedin.

PHOTO:

BOWLS NZ

it as a project for school at about

age 11. I had absolutely nothing

to do with it.

Well, you won the titles.

Well, that is right.

Bowls has a bit of a reputation

for some fairly decent gettogethers

after the matches,

have you ever been to a function

that got a bit too rowdy?

Rowdy, yes, out of control, no.

There have been a few drinks

over the years. In the younger

days probably a bit more. We

have slowed down on the drinking,

not on the greens, though.

Who is the best player you

have competed against?

Millie Khan, from Matamata.

She has passed on now but played

for New Zealand for a number

of years. Her daughter Jan Khan,

has also played for New Zealand.

They were a formidable pair. Jo

Edwards from Nelson, who now

lives in Australia, has played

for New Zealand and won a lot

of titles before. She is the top

bowler in New Zealand. We were

probably fortunate we didn’t have

to play her at nationals.

Are there any big rivalries in

bowls around Canterbury?

All the top bowlers know each

other, we have played together

a lot. There is a lot of good

friendship built through good

hard competitive bowls. Once it

is over, it is over. We are all good

mates. You know you are both

playing your heart out and who

wins, wins. It is disappointing

when you lose, but you pick

yourself up and go try again.

Finally, how much longer

are you planning on playing

competitively?

Probably until I stop enjoying

it. When I can no longer walk

properly and can’t bowl, I will

give up. So I have no plans of

giving up anytime soon.

A letter to our community.

Thank you to our wonderful staff and to all those helping us following the recent devastating fire

at the GELITA NZ plant in Woolston, Christchurch.

There were four people on site at the time of the fire and fortunately no one was hurt.

The fire has caused major structural and electrical damage, primarily in our processing area, and

the food manufacturing areas of the plant. Our first job is to clean up, now that the fire and

insurance investigators have given us the go ahead.

The clean-up operation will include the removal of partially processed beef hide from the site over

the next three or so weeks. During the removal, there will unfortunately be increased odours at

some stages of the day.

We are keenly aware of our near neighbours and will work very hard to keep the impact to an

absolute minimum. Despite our best efforts, we expect that there will be spikes in odour while the

partly processed material is treated and removed. It’s a huge job.

But, once the material is removed, the source of the odour will have been eliminated.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we undertake this work and we

apologise for any short-term effect this may have on our local community.

GELITA NZ takes beef hide, a by-product from meat works, extracts the collagen, and turns it into

gelatine powder for use in a broad range of industries including the food, beverage, health and

pharmaceutical sectors.

While the fire has been a major setback for GELITA NZ, the plant was fully insured and our parent

company has established a support team in Germany to help us through this period of uncertainty.

Our customers are being serviced by the wider GELITA group while we plan for our future.

We remain positive. GELITA NZ employs 60 staff and a further 300 indirectly. About three-quarters

of our high quality gelatine is sent overseas.

There is no doubt that we face a difficult period but we will continue to work hard for our future.

School preparation

The Star

2018 edition

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.

wealth of experience having successfully

lead two previous schools to a 4-5 year

return from ERO. Shona is looking

forward to the exciting times ahead for

Bamford School in 2018.

Bamford is a small school with a family

/ whanau feel where everyone looks out

for each other and the whole staff know

all students and their families / whanau.

Our staff work collaboratively to provide

an education where strong values, high

expectations and striving for excellence

are at the heart of the curriculum.

Our teaching and learning focuses on

giving students real life experiences to

raise achievement across all curriculum

areas.

There are many opportunities for

our students to feel success in the

arts, culture, sports, academics and

leadership.

We are a PB4L (Positive Behaviour for

Junior GaTE

Project :

Community

Action

Back to

The junior GaTE (Gifted and Talented)

group at Mairehau High School has

been working on a project looking at

the needs of our community. One Year 9

student, Caley Gopperth, chose to focus

on the increasing rate of the homeless

in our city. She began by looking at the

idea of putting together an emergency

kit. From there she researched what

would be required and began pricing up

all of the items.

She wrote to a number of companies

asking for support and donations. We

are very grateful to The Warehouse,

K-Mart, Cookie Time, Warehouse

Stationery and Ferrymead Dental for

their support.

Caley also fundraised making and

selling packs of cheese rolls and Thai

pumpkin soup to the staff.

Caley thought it would be best to work

alongside the City Mission. She was

lucky enough to be shown around the

new City Mission by Gray Crawford, the

Social Services Manager. He spoke with

her about the backgrounds and needs

of their clients. Caley was told about

the new women’s 12-bed overnight

refuge that is about to open. From this

discussion Caley was able to make the

decision to focus the backpacks and

items on the needs of these women.

Caley and her teacher, Ms Marshall,

will be delivering the bags to the City

Mission next week, who will then ensure

they get to the right women. This has

been a very successful and rewarding

project for Caley.

The Manaiakalani pedagogy (Learn Create

surpassing growth and improvement

nationally by a significant margin. We ask

all students to come to school equipped

with a Chromebook, apart from your time,

there is little better you can invest in your

child’s education than the purchase of that

Chromebook.

Junior students are increasingly

approaching their learning via real world

contexts (whether it’s the arts or business,

or project based learning designed to

improve our community in real ways). This

is contributing to improved engagement

and improved learning.

We are a very values based school, and

our students repeatedly show that they

Education is about the well-being of the

whole person and how developmentally

positive experiences enrich our

students’ understanding of who they

are and broaden their outlook. They

nurture students’ classroom focus by

contextualising their learning and sowing

the seeds of positive ambition.

Linwood College believes in a ‘pathwayed

curriculum’. This means the school,

students and families knowing:

1. Students’ prior learning and skills

as they come into LC from our partner

primary schools and building on these

successes

2. How the learning at LC connects to

what the students want to do when they

leave school. “What are my post-school

pathways and how does my time at LC

help me achieve these pathways?”

In this way learning is meaningful to the

Take advantage of all that Burnside High

School has to offer

Back to

Welcome to the school year; and a

special welcome to all new students,

families and staff who start their

association with the Burnside

community in 2018. I look forward to

meeting you as the year progresses.

Burnside has a tradition of high

achievement based on strong, positive

learning relationships between

students and their teachers; and strong

connections with whanau. Our goal is

for all our students to demonstrate the

attitude, motivation, and determination

to be successful; to progress and

achieve in learning; and to contribute

in all areas of school life. We want our

students to take control of their learning

and their development and be part of

our sporting and cultural activities.

A successful school provides

opportunities for students to gain

qualifications, but also guides and

assists them in shaping pathways for life

beyond school. Our careers team talk

to our students and assist them to make

decisions about their futures.

The school has pride in its diversity and

respects, understands and celebrates

the things that make each of us

unique. Every student should feel there

is a place for them no matter what

their ideas, their backgrounds, their

orientations.

Every student has individual talents,

gifts and personal characteristics and

behaviours and our job is to nurture

and guide everyone to become the best

version of themselves.

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 – no matter

what talents we have been dealt.

We offer a wide range of opportunities

through quality learning experiences

both inside and outside the classroom.

We aim to engage, challenge and

support our students to improve allround

achievement and personal and

interpersonal skills; all within a culture

based on personal excellence and care

for others. It is this culture underpinned

by our values of respect, pride and

excellence that underpins Burnside’s

success.

We believe that the culture of the school

provides the basis for students to

achieve, and to continue to achieve both

at school and beyond the school.

Our school motto - Recte sic dirige

cursum – ‘Along this path direct your

journey correctly’ is linked to the

historical significance of our cabbage

trees, Ti Kouka, (commas don’t isolate

the phrase) 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.

Our hope and intent is that students

will feel guided through Burnside High

School - attaining the qualifications they

are capable of and that they develop the

personal qualities and confidence to

choose the right pathways in life. Above

all else enjoy the “cabbage tree years”.

I look forward to working with, for and

alongside students and staff in 2018.

where they learn advancing skills in

The Explore choices narrow somewhat

The Star

2018 edition

60 years old for

Riccarton High

Welcome to the new school year as

Riccarton High School celebrates

its 6oth year in existence. A special

welcome to new students and their

whanau. I certainly look forward to

meeting you in the near future.

You are about to become part of the

Riccarton family; a wonderfully diverse

school community which prides itself

on instilling strong values through a

genuine belief in the ‘Riccarton Way’ (the

wairua or sprit behind the way we think,

act and relate to others.)

Riccarton High School offers a wide

range of Academic, Sporting, Cultural

and Leadership opportunities in

addition to a unique Outdoor Education

experience - all contributing to the

creation of a well-rounded ‘Riccarton

Graduate.’ In addition, our school motto

- ‘Disce ut prosis ‘ which translates

as ‘Learn that you may be of service’

emphasises the importance of serving

the community in which you live.

A strong focus is placed on the hauora,

or well-being, of students and staff.

Having effective tools to deal with

the challenges that modern day life

presents us with is an essential part of

the Riccarton Way.

In 2018 Riccarton High School is looking

forward to increased access to digital

technology with our BYOD scheme

across both Year 9 and Year 10. By the

end of 2020 this will exist across the

whole school. The digital device we view

as another important learning tool in

a blended learning environment which

enables our ãkonga to be fully prepared

for further study or employment

opportunities.

2018 edition

Christchurch Girls High

Back to

Last year our school was 140 years old

and in that 140 year history we have

never doubted what we stand for. We

know what we are. From our beginnings

in 1877 we have only ever been a

purpose built school for girls. When our

school first opened on that September

day in 1877 who could have envisaged

140 years later: three site moves, a

number of earthquakes, 13 principals

and a fabulous new building? In that

time we have seen the move from ink

pens to ball points, from blackboards

to whiteboards to laptops. It makes you

wonder what the future holds in store

and how can you prepare for what may

or may not be? At Christchurch Girls’

High School we work hard to build

capacity in our students so that they

are able to embrace the future with

confidence.

Students strive to pursue personal

excellence on the sporting field, in

cultural activities, through community

service and academically. They do so

with energy and enthusiasm, supported

by an experienced, professional and

caring staff. We are traditional in

aspects such as uniform, courtesy and

the high expectations we have of our

students but innovative in the wide

range of opportunities we provide both

inside and outside the classroom. Hence

our vision: Embrace Tradition, Embrace

Innovation, Embrace Excellence.

Education takes us from darkness into

light.

Kia tu ki tenei taumata – o te Whai Ao –

ki te Ao Marama

Kia mohio hei whakatuwhera mou

Nau mai, Haere mai.

So stand at this threshold – Te Whai Ao

The World of Light and know that it is

open for you.

You are welcomed.

Christchurch Girls’ High School Te

Kura o Hine Waiora looks forward to

welcoming you in 2018.

Excitement building along

with new campus

The Star

2018 edition

Avonside

Girls’

Seniors.

Sue

Hume

Shirley Boys’ High.

Enormous progress is being made in

the construction of a new campus for

Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley

Boys’ High School.

Some 5000 piles have now been driven

into the ground at the site in QEII Park.

The state of the art campus is on track

to be opened for term two of 2019.

Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume

expects the campus will become

a crucial asset for the east of

Christchurch.

“Residents in the east of Christchurch

have long been calling for a new

high school, and the new campus

will be a place where the community

is welcomed. Many of our facilities,

including the sports facilities will be

available for community use,” says Sue

Hume.

Among the facilities are a Performing

Arts Centre with a 750-seat theatre, a

second smaller

100-seat theatre and three full-sized

indoor Gymnasiums.

Shirley Boys’ Principal John Laurenson

says the new school will be the ultimate

campus for providing high quality single

sex education.

“We’ll still be offering all the benefits of

a single-sex education, but our students

will have the advantage of being able

to learn and grow alongside students

from our partner school, in what will be

a truly incredible campus,” says John

Laurenson.

In the meantime, as work continues

onsite, the schools are gearing up for a

busy 2018.

The schools will make New Zealand

history in 2019 when they become the

first two single sex schools to co-locate.

Time to rebuild

Like many other organisations in

Christchurch, our campus has been

broken and tested and if you visited

the college, you would see the obvious

effects of this – barren spaces at the

top of the drive, temporary facilities

installed to ‘make do’ – the most notable

of these being our chapel.

The demolition of the chapel seriously

challenged us. It was the single most

important building at St Bede’s College,

and had symbolised the heart and

soul of the College ever since the third

Rector, Father Gilbert, converted it from

the gymnasium in 1929.

Makeshift holy places in the last 6 years,

including the present facility, are a

poor imitation and far from ideal. But

we knew it was important to have this

sacred space – a place where we gather

in good times and in bad.

The time has now come to build a new

Chapel.

After the hard years, there is real

excitement and anticipation about

the prospect of the rebuild which will

significantly transform the campus.

We have set a fundraising goal of $1.5m

via our “A little from a lot” campaign. For

more information about the campaign,

please go to www.oldboys.stbedes.

school.nz/chapelappeal

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place

where gospel values are practised to

help form principled men; a learning

environment where everyone achieves;

a place that teachers want to come

to because of the strength of the

community; a place also, where boys

can embrace spiritual, sporting, cultural

and community activities, which all

combined shape boys into men. That’s

the priority and that is in our DNA.

The number of crashes

in the central city has

reduced by 17 per

cent since the speed

limit was dropped to

30km/h more than a

year ago

Sandy Chapman – I

avoid the city now. It’s full

of entitled cyclists (not

all but 99 per cent) and

pedestrians who don’t

look where they are going

– people taking selfies everywhere.

The roads make

no sense and there are road

works everywhere.

Lani Davidson – I actively

avoid the city, even as

part of my commute. This

war on cars in the central

city is a joke. It’s all well and

good making it safer for

pedestrians and cyclists, but

some day when everything

is fixed, how does the city

council think people will

get into the city in the first

place? Oh that’s right, with

a car that you can’t park

anywhere because there’s a

cycle lane in the way.

Bridget Compton-

Moen – Here come all

the “I never go into the

city because it’s a dump”

comments. Your loss. It is

so much better than it was

before the earthquakes.

I remember walking

through Shades Arcade

just before the September

quake and every second

shop was for lease. It

was the saddest place ever.

Yes, it’s a work in progress

at the moment but there

is always something new

to see. Interesting how the

people who actually work

in the CBD love it.

come a day when there are

no road works.

Leon Austin – It’s

made it more dangerous

as pedestrians and cyclists

seem to think everywhere

is a pedestrian/cycle lane

and take no notice of

cars. I’ve lost count of the

amount of times I’ve had

to slam on my brakes to

stop running someone or

a cyclist over who casually

walk out/cycle out into the

middle of the road.

Barb Thomsen-

Britten – Sadly, I think

more folk avoid driving

through the city. I would

not shop there as parking

costs are horrific. Malls are

free. I once shopped readily

in the city.

POSITIVE:

The lower

speed

limit in the

central city,

such as on

Montreal St,

has reduced

the number

of crashes

and injuries

in the first 18

months since

the change.

PHOTO:

MARTIN

HUNTER

Sally Lane – Does the

city council want people

in the central city? Don’t

go there. We live and

shop north of Waimak.

Rangiora and Kaiapoi has

everything we need.

Rob Fey – I spend more

time waiting at lights than

actually moving, and I still

see more cars than cycles,

you can make as many

cycle lanes as you want it’s

not going to force anyone

to ride them.

Tanya Didham – Never

understood why there is

so much bike-hate in this

flat, easy-to-bike-around

city? I’m too scared to ride

a bike in town because

of all the terrible drivers,

and although I am a car

driver, I would prefer to

see cars out of the central

city altogether and just

better public transport.

Cars make it smelly and

congested – not the way of

the future.

Ingrid Porta – The

only people I see driving at

30km/h are those searching

for a car park.

them (for motorists).

I don’t think there will ever

Linzi Woods – And

we all get old getting to

work some of us are retired

before we get there. Less

crashes because no one

wants to drive in the CBD

anymore = less cars = less

people so obviously less

crashes.

Philip Nelson – I’ll be

interested to see how the

CITY 2 SURF TRAINING PROGRAMME

WEEK TWO: Starting out

In week 2 you will extend the time of your sessions by a fraction. The challenge is to keep the intensity

controlled. There is no need to get really puffed and tired. Remember the talk test. If you exercise with

others the talk test comes automatically. If it is just you, talk to yourself but perhaps not too loud!….We can

divide what we call the submaximal pace up in 3 zones.

1. Easy: this is a pace where you are not too puffed and the talk test is not even a test. At this stage this

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

(both light)

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.

Rowers gear up for Maadi Cup

• By Andrew King

SCHOOL rowing crews have

one eye on the Maadi Cup as

they build towards the South

Island championships on Lake

Ruataniwha in Twizel.

After the first “blowout” of

the season at the Canterbury

championships in Twizel at the

weekend, crews quickly got back

on the water to improve before

the South Island regatta on

January 27-28.

The Maadi Cup, the biggest

school regatta of the year, will be

held in Twizel from March 19-24.

Christchurch crews won 10

golds at the Maadi Cup regatta

last year, with St Andrew’s

College winning the coveted boys

under-18 eights ahead of Christ’s

College.

Christchurch Boys’ High head

coach Logan Keys said while

there were some tired bodies after

a big camp in Alexandra days

before the Canterbury champs,

HARD YARDS: Rangi Ruru rowers jumped straight back into

training after a strong outing at the Canterbury champs. (Right)

The women’s eights lined up ready to race.

the sport was about putting in

the hard yards. Their training

paid off with CBHS winning

eight golds at the champs – which

included a blistering time of

6min 13.42sec to win the men’s

open eights – as well as three

silver and three bronze medals.

“This is our building phase of

the season. We are pretty happy

with where we are at right now,”

Keys said. “We will start to firm

up some combinations for Maadi

in the next few regattas,” he said.

Last year at the South Island

champs, CBHS crews took home

gold in the men’s club coxed

four, boys under-17 eights, boys

under-15 coxed octuple sculls,

boys under-16 coxed four, men’s

novice eights, boys under-15

eights and men’s open eights.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

director of rowing Mark Cotham

said the whole squad jumped

straight back into training after

the Canterbury champs and were

looking good. “The work rate

of the seniors right down to the

juniors has been great. We are

putting in the ground work and

mileage now with one eye on

Maadi,” he said.

Rangi Ruru also had a

successful outing at the weekend

with six golds – two of which

came in the women’s novice

eights and intermediate eights –

five silvers and one bronze.

At the South Island champs

last year, Rangi Ruru won gold

in the girls under-16 coxed four,

girls under-17 coxed four, girls

under-15 eights, girls under-17

eights and women’s under-19

eights.

Miya doesn’t drop a

shot to sweep field

• By Gordon Findlater

RUSSLEY’S Hiroki Miya did not

drop a shot when he powered his

way past 108 of the country’s top

young golfers to win the North

Island under-19 championship in

Hamilton at the weekend.

Miya didn’t register a single

bogey through 54 holes on his

way to an eight-shot victory.

Rounds of 68, 68 and 67 to

finish at 13-under even had the

17-year-old in awe of himself,

describing the win as the perfect

start to the year.

“It was pretty cool to string

together rounds like that,” said

Miya.

“I haven’t won by that kind

of margin in a big tournament

before. Everything was on and all

parts of my game came together.”

Australia is the next destination

in Miya’s journey towards one

day turning professional. He will

play in the Avondale Amateur in

Sydney starting next Tuesday.

It will be the biggest amateur

tournament Miya has played

in, with entries for the amateur

ranking event from as far as

England and Switzerland.

Following the tournament in

Sydney, Miya will return home

where he hopes to qualify for

the New Zealand Open with the

first stage of qualification at the

Christchurch club on January

29.

Sensei’s group one bid

• By Gordon Findlater

THREE-YEAR-OLD Sensei

will revert to sprinting in a bid

to win his first group one race

in the time-honoured Telegraph

handicap at Trentham on

Saturday.

Trainer Michael Pitman says

the colt’s wide barrier draw (13)

“isn’t the best in the world” for

the $100,000 1200m race.

Pitman was hopeful Sensei

would deliver him an elusive

group one win in the 2000 3YO

Guineas (1600m) at Riccarton

in November. But he finished

fifth.

At his most recent start, Sensei

was caught wide and overraced

in the group one Levin

Classic (1600m) on Saturday. He

finished eighth.

Pitman, who trains the colt

with his son Matthew, believes

the Telegraph distance will better

suit Sensei.

“He raced really keen in the

1600m race on Saturday so it’s

in our mind to run him back in

the 1200m,” said Pitman.

“This the best distance for

him. Danielle Johnson is riding

him. He’s only got a light weight

and he’s very well in himself so

SENTIMENTAL: Sensei will continue to look for his first group

one win at Trentham on Saturday.

we’re happy with where we’re

at.” The colt is named after Pitman’s

late son Jonny, who took

his life four years ago. Jonny

was a black belt in judo, hence

the name Sensei.

However, this weekend

will be a normal routine for

the trainers, with Matthew

travelling to Trentham and

Pitman going to the Gore

meeting.

“It’s just the way it works out.

I’ll be scrambling to find a TV

when the race in Trentham

comes around,” said Pitman.

Explore the salt mines of Hallstatt

ISOLATION: Hallstatt is ripe with outdoorsy

opportunities.

ANCIENT HISTORY: Access to the Salzwelten salt mining operation is by funicular railway. Have fun on

• By Mike Yardley

DO A Google image search

of Hallstatt and you’ll

notice that it’s one particular

perspective, looking

long across the length

of the slender village,

strung along a shoe-string

peninsula, pricked by lofty

church spires, that sings

out loud.

Wedged between the

edge of Lake Hallstatt and

the towering Dachstein

mountains, Austria’s oldest

– and arguably most photographed

village – hovered

like a mirage, as I neared it.

It is insanely quaint, achingly

beautiful and home to

just 800 residents.

High above Hallstatt, in

the upper valley, one of the

greatest eye-openers was to

take a journey back in time

to the origin of salt production.

Salzwelten is situated

high above the town on

the 1030m Salzberg (Salt

Mountain). You can access

this remarkable attraction

aboard a funicular.

My first stop was at Rudolf’s

Tower, which serves

up dreamy views from this

old fortification, built over

700 years ago to defend

the mines against invaders.

It’s been joined by the

Sky Walk, built four years

ago, consisting of a sprawling

platform that juts off

the mountainside, with a

sheer drop to the rooftops

of Hallstatt, directly below.

The starring attraction,

however, is the 7000-year-

a 64m wooden slide that miners used on the job.

old salt mine itself.

It’s the world’s oldest

known salt mine, with

archaeological evidence

proving they were mining

the salt from this mountain

in 5000BC.

Since salt is such an

excellent preservative many

of the early miner’s tools

like pick axes and ladders,

found within the mine,

have withstood the ravages

of time. By 800BC, the

hardy miners were penetrating

as deep as 200m

into the mountain, carving

out tunnels by hand, to

reach the vast deposits of

“white gold.”

The greatest discovery to

date was the “Man in Salt”,

the corpse of an ancient

miner, mummified in salt,

who is believed to have

perished during a major

workplace accident in

1000BC.

His preserved body

was found in 1734 and

he was laid to rest in the

local graveyard, 2700 years

after dying. Within the

mine, I marvelled over the

magnificently preserved

wooden staircase that was

built in 1344BC. The tourist

experience takes you

through two levels, using

the wooden slides that the

miners actually used on

the job. Riding these 64m

slides must have been the

fun part to their daily toil.

Back down in town, I

paid to visit to St Michael’s

Chapel’s Bone House.

Dating back to the 12thcentury,

the rather macabre

draw is the hundreds of

artistically painted skulls

on display. Hallstatt’s shortage

of available land meant

the graveyard was always

in hot demand and after

several years, an existing

grave was reused for a new

burial. Over 30,000 entries

have been logged in the

church death registry.

Given Hallstatt’s glorious

sense of alpine isolation,

the area is ripe with outdoorsy

opportunities.

Backdropped by the

Dachstein mountains, the

peaks play host to skiers

in winter and hikers in the

warmer months. Some will

take you up close to glaciers,

including the stunning nature

walk on the Echerntal

Trail, which many a romantic

poet and painter have

swooned over. The mountains

are also famous for

the spectacular Dachstein

Caves, a network of caverns

nearly 1200m deep.

•I tripped to Europe with

Cathay Pacific which operates

The muscle car party continues again

this year with the 28th running of the

Muscle Car Madness Show in Rangiora.

Competitors start rolling into town on

the Thursday for a full-on, carnival-style

weekend, which continues to be the South

Island’s largest automotive event and one

of the top three in New Zealand.

The event kicks off with a downtown

street party taking over Rangiora’s main

street on Thursday night from 6pm till

9pm. Live bands play during this time, and

with shops open, stalls going on, and bars,

restaurants and cafes serving the punters,

it really “went off ” last year, the organisers

say.

Around 200 cars will

be on display on the

Thursday, and over 1200

cars on the public days.

Both days feature different

cars and a two-day (public

show hours) pass will be

available at the gates on

Saturday for $30.

Friday is a day for the

competitors and involves

around 300 cars, with their

drivers enjoying the North

Canterbury scenery on

the ‘Classic Cover’s Great

Summer Fun Run’. This is a

low-key event, with a lunch

stop in the middle.

The variety of cars on

display is phenomenal.

Street machines, muscle cars, restored

classics and hot rods – whatever your taste

you will find something to satisfy it. Many

one-make car clubs have club displays to

raise awareness of their club and attract

new members. These include the Zephyr-

Zodiac club, Falcon club, several Holden

clubs, Corvette, Mustang, and even a large

showing of Volkswagens.

Another popular event returning this

year is the South Island Van nationals,

again being run by Vanz Unlimited. It is

hoped the ‘Diesel Rat’, the latest creation

from Bell-A-Rat customs, will make an

appearance. This rolling piece of art is

slower than cash!

On the music front there is the

course the ‘Kabella Baby’ sponsored retro

beauty competition taking place early

The burnout pad will start earlier on the

the finals being held on Sunday.

So if you like perfect paintwork,

gleaming chrome and the noise of highperformance,

crisp-sounding V8 engines,

this is the place to be. But don’t leave it till

3pm Sunday to come to the show, or you

will be disappointed. A lot of cars will have

driven huge distances to get here and a few

will start leaving early for the drive home.

Lots of fun down the main

Over 50 young ladies

competed in the retro

beauty pageant.

This magnificent car is

known as a 1961 Chevrolet

‘bubbletop’ Impala.

This family-friendly show – don’t

forget the children’s rides – is priced

slightly differently this year, to hopefully

speed up proceedings. Adults are $18,

all kids under 15 are free, and a two-day

pass for display hours only is just $30

can cause delays. Ongoing roadworks and reduced speed limits

in places mean that it won’t be possible for you to make up time.

Do not rely on your GPS or Google Maps -

things can change at short notice.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON SH1

Parts of the road will still be under construction, so there will be some

unsealed sections, lane closures with Stop/Go controls and speed restrictions.

There will be night closures (8.30pm – 7am) north of Kaikōura between

Clarence and Mangamaunu, and between Goose Bay and Peketa in the south.

Closure points will be monitored 24/7.

Consider road closure hours before starting your trip and leave enough

time to be clear of these sections so you can continue your journey.

The opening hours are subject to adverse weather and seismic activity. If there

is a lot of rain or another significant event, we may have to close the road for

short periods of time.

It’s important to remember the safety of those using the highway, and

working on it, will always be our top priority.

WORK HAS RAMPED UP IN JANUARY

CHRISTCHURCH

Following the road opening on 15 December, most of the work sites closed down to help

with traffic flow over the busy Christmas period.

The work programme is now back in full delivery which will have a significant effect

on the coastal corridor.

NZ Transport Agency Journey Manager Tresca Forrester says ‘It’s a balancing act to

schedule the reinstatement work to have a minimal effect on travel time while also

ensuring the work gets done. Drivers should now expect it to take at least 5 ½ to 6 hours

to drive between Picton and Christchurch on SH1 but should allow plenty of extra time

in case of delays. Check www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c for the latest information.’

BE ROAD COURTEOUS

• No stopping on SH1 within the closure areas

outside of designated stop bays.

• Be patient and cautious. Road conditions

will be unfamiliar to many drivers,

so a little bit of patience will go a long way.

• Follow all traffic signs and any instruction

given by road crew.

• Obey speed limits to keep all road users safe.

• Stay focused around rail lines. Expect trains

at any time.

• Keep fresh by taking breaks and supporting

communities on the route.

Volvo’s XC60 hits

SUV market by storm

• By Ross Kiddie

VOLVO XC60: High values for safety and comfort.

VOLVO’S XC90 has long

been regarded as the

perfect mid-to-large sport

utility vehicle.

There are no arguments

there, it is the quintessential

seven-seater and its success

globally speaks for itself.

However, its little brother

also stands up to be counted,

the XC60 represents

much of what its stablemate

commands, but is packaged

as a five-seater only.

The XC60 would be the

car for me, and in its latest

iteration it is an absolute

stunner. In saying that, I’m

not really an SUV buyer,

but sometimes a car just

screams out perfection, and

for that reason it’s hard to

ignore the XC60.

The Volvo distributor

here has taken the XC60’s

arrival seriously. The range

is comprehensive, there

are five variants on offer,

including a hybrid, and

a huge range of colours.

Prices range from $84,900

to $94,900.

The test car was a badged

D5 and carried R-Design

specification extras. In

this form the XC60 is an

absolute gem, it has build

quality, features and performance

to envy. Sure, its

price tag of almost $95k is

a little prohibitive for the

family buyer, but what you

get on the series is stunning.

Over the years I’ve

written many times of my

affection for air suspension,

and the way the XC60 rides

and drives is spectacular. It

has that float-on-air feeling

along with the other

benefits of that system –

ride-height adjustment and

the ability to absorb uneven

surfaces.

I’m not saying the XC60

is an off-roader, but it does

get four-wheel-drive and

it will tackle gentle crosscountry

tracks with dignity

and aplomb.

Under the bonnet sits a

twin-turbocharged, 2-litre

diesel. Don’t let the D5’s

nomenclature fool you,

this engine isn’t one of the

legendary five-cylinder

designs of years gone by, it

is, in fact, a four-cylinder

unit and makes up for any

disappointment with its

amazing power outputs –

177kW and 500Nm.

Volvo also claims a 5.5-litre

per 100km (51mpg)

combined cycle fuel usage

average.

The latter is not surprising,

most modern diesels

of this size will present you

with figures in that area,

and that is reinforced by

the 7l/100km (40mpg)

figure showing on the

evaluation car’s fuel usage

readout during my time

with the vehicle. That along

with a 5l/100km (56mpg)

instantaneous figure sitting

at the legal limit with the

engine turning over freely

at 1600rpm.

• Price – Volvo XC60

D5, $94,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4688mm; width,

1902mm; height,

1658mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

1969cc,

177kW, 500Nm, eightspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 7.1sec

• Fuel usage –

5.5l/100km

While these figures

are impressive, take into

account the areas where

peak power is realised

(4000rpm) and the flat

torque curve – 1500rpm to

2500rpm – and you have an

engine which delivers solid

power from anywhere in

the rev band.

Drive is channelled

though a conventional

eight-speed transmission,

and together the two elements

provide immediacy

and fluid drive.

As a guide to performance

the XC60 in this form will

lunge to 100km/h in 7.1sec

and will complete a highway

overtake in 5sec, the midrange

boost is something

wonderful; at road speed

the XC60’s diesel engine is

stroppy and forceful.

That’s the reason why I

like the traditional 2-litre

diesel, it has boost and

torque like nothing else,

it is vibrant to drive yet

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

doesn’t lose sight of the

need to promote healthy

fuel usage statistics. It is

also wonderfully quiet in its

delivery.

Why I remarked earlier

about the suspension is

that the XC60 has handling

manners other manufacturers

must envy. The XC60 is

wonderfully balanced for

a 1.65m-tall vehicle, body

movement is negligible

and the suspension always

seems composed.

The R-Design model

has huge wheels and they

are fitted with some of

the world’s most desirable

tyres – Pirelli PZero. At

255/40 x 21in, there is a lot

of rubber on the road and

there’s never a point where

you feel like the tyres are

struggling, corner turn-in

is accurate and steering

feedback delightful.

While the XC60’s allround

performance is

remarkable, it must be

remembered it is built with

the Volvo values for safety

and occupant comfort. It

is also a true champion

in that area with a high

level of fitment and a layout

which is clean aesthetically.

I particularly like the large

central screen which is a

hugely intuitive iPad-like

device and is the driver for

most of the in-cabin functions.

The XC60 range is quite

extensive, not only do you

get conventional engines

and transmissions, the

hybrid will be the basis for

when the company scales

back production of internal

combustion engines

and focuses on hybrid and

electric vehicles sometime

after 2019.

In the meantime, it’s

fantastic cars like the XC60

and others from the Volvo

stable which will continue

to lure buyers, simply

because of its quality and

rewarding driving experience.

GARDENING

ADVICE with

Regular watering and garden management is critical for plant health

during the hot summer months. Adding a thick layer of mulch around

plants will help prevent soil moisture evaporating. Avoid watering

during the hottest part of the day when plants are heat stressed;

instead water in the early morning or evening.

QUESTION

I need some advice and tips for using

planter boxes for my vegetables (tomatoes,

lettuce etc). How often should I water and

fertilise? Am new to this! Plus, what’s the best way to deter the local

cats from using my planter boxes as their toilet?

Today’s winning question came

from Candice Johnson. Congratulations!

We have a Daltons Garden Mulch Pack to giveaway.

Each pack is valued at over $85 and contains:

• 3 x Daltons Mulch & Grow

• 3 x Daltons Nugget Bark

• 4 x Besgrow Coir Briquette

• PLUS a pair of comfortable,

versatile Red Back gardening

gloves from Omni Products

(www.omniproducts.co.nz)

$85

PRIZE

PACK!

z

Depending on the position of your planter

ANSWER boxes, they will need to be watered regularly

and thoroughly in the height of summer;

possibly every second day. We presume you have used good quality

potting mix and/or container mix which is purposely designed for

growing vegetables in planter boxes.

Most container mixes have nutrients included, but with regular

watering and plant uptake, these readily available nutrients are used

up over time. Therefore, apply side dressings of Daltons Goldcote

Vegetable and Herb Fertiliser every 2-3 weeks throughout the

summer months.

In order to keep cats out of your garden, it may be necessary to

enclose your garden in some chicken mesh supported by stakes that

are high enough to allow suffi cient room for the veggies to grow, while

preventing the animals from accessing the growing plants. There are

some products on the market which are meant to deter cats from

entering parts of the garden through their pungent odour. You might

wish to try these and experiment for yourself.

For more information and expert advice, check out our How to Grow

Summer Vegetables guide at www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

• By Henri Ham

BEAUTIFUL bupleurum – that’s

a bit of a tongue-twister. If you’re

not sure how to pronounce it – it’s

boo-pler-um.

This pretty plant, which is sold

under the ‘flower’ category, is actually

a herb. But unless you have

experience in herbal medicine or

the like ingesting it isn’t recommended.

These days, bupleurum

is more commonly grown to add

colour and texture to gardens and

for cut flowers – it lasts really well

in a vase.

It has beautiful eucalyptus-like

leaves on tall stems with greenyellow

flowers and grows to around

80cm tall. It’s closely related to fennel

and dill, and you can see why

– they have quite a similar look

due to the fact they are all umbelforming

plants.

What’s an umbel? This word

comes from the Latin word umbella

which you’ve probably guessed

means parasol, sunshade – much

like an umbrella. And it’s used to

describe the short flower stalks

which spread out from a common

point on each stem – like the ribs of

an umbrella.

While there’s a bit of information

you can learn about bupleurum,

growing it is quite simple.

It likes full sun and each plant

should be planted around 40cm

apart from the next. Once it’s planted

it’s very easy-care and doesn’t

attract many pests or insects. And

will flower in around four to five

weeks.

It’s a short-lived perennial which

means if you live in an area that

gets frosts you will probably get one

flowering from your bupleurum.

But if you live in a frost-free area

of New Zealand, you should get

two or more flowerings out of your

bupleurum.

Regardless of where you live, if

you’re lucky, when they’ve finished

flowering they may self-seed and

pop up again the next year.

Smarter HomeS

Infiltrating every arena of our lives, technology aims to make our lives better.

Greater efficiency, economy, comfort, and safety are cornerstones of the

technological advancements that are constantly being imagined and developed to

make our homes a haven from, and connected to, the outside world.

Biometric fingerprint security systems, key

cards, and voice-activated lighting were once

only seen on the seemingly fantastical movies

of 20 years ago. Today, however, they have all

come to fruition on the home front, the realm

of possibilities seems limited only by one's

imagination.

Smart home technology has filtered

through all aspects of our lives, which

promises greater comfort, safety, economy,

efficiency, and overall enjoyment of the world

in which we live.

Smarter building materials, smarter

architectural design, smarter appliances,

and smarter software systems that offer fully

integrated multi-sensory platforms are being

envisioned and created faster than we can get

our heads around how to operate them.

So, what is your home missing that

could deliver optimal comfort beyond your

wildest dreams? For those of us who spend

long periods away from home on business,

remote-access security cameras are becoming

a popular commodity.

Cameras placed in and around your home

can be controlled and viewed via a remotely

connected device so no matter where you are

in the world you can have peace of mind that

when you return everything will be just as

you left it.

Home security systems can also welcome

you home at the end of every day with

intelligent preset computer modules. On your

approach the garage door opens, the driveway

is sufficiently illuminated and the alarm

system is deactivated.

Home & Property appears

every Thursday, delivered FREE

throughout Christchurch

When receiving visitors, automated

lighting can be activated above the door

when the buzzer is pressed and crystal-clear

video monitors now give you the ability to

zoom in with touch-screen controls and

developments in sound technology are able

to negate background noise for optimal audio

communication.

Smart temperature control is a valuable

piece of technology to give you greater

comfort inside.

Sync the controls to your mobile device

so you can activate the heating or air

conditioning on your way home from the

office so it’s the perfect climate on your

arrival. Smart temperature control systems

give you total control over power and fuel

consumption, heating and cooling your home

efficiently and economically.

Automated lighting is another smart

feature that is becoming more and more

commonplace in households around

the world. Easily integrated into existing

homes, most automated lighting systems are

controlled from a central panel or via a smart

mobile device.

LED lights enable you to control colour,

brightness, and efficiency, depending on the

mood and task at hand, while automated

controls can even make adjustments based

on changing conditions like occupancy or

daylight availability, saving money in the long

run.

Whatever the future holds, it promises to

change the world as we know it.

The Frog Prince, The Princess
