Classic concerto earns student recognition

LIXIN ZHANG first heard

Franz Liszt’s Piano Concerto No.

1 in Eb Major, S.124 when he was

11-years-old.

Five years later it earned the

year 13 Burnside High School

student second place at the

National Concerto Competition

held at the St Margaret’s College

Charles Luney Auditorium.

Lixin won $3000 and he was

also awarded an additional $150

for claiming the people’s choice

award.

“I started practising the piece

in about June last year. It’s been

my focus since then,” he said.

Lixin, 16, has been playing

piano since he was 4-years-old.

“I practice every day,

depending on how busy I am

with school work. It can be

two or three hours if I have a

lot of work, or three or four

hours if I don’t have too much,”

he said.

But Lixin said coming second

meant he still had areas to work

on.

“It was good placing but there are

still places I can improve,” he said.

Now Lixin said he will be focusing

on perfecting his piece for

upcoming auditions for universities

in the United States later in

the year.

Second

primary

school

planned

for Belfast

• By Julia Evans

ONE OF the fastest growing

areas in the city will get a new

school.

The population of Belfast is

expected to double from 7500

to 15,000 by 2041, which has

prompted investigations into

establishing a second primary

school by 2020.

“Population projections

indicate the need for additional

schooling provision in the west

Belfast area,” Ministry of Education

deputy secretary sector

enablement and support Katrina

Casey said.

Ms Casey said there are

currently about 700 year 1 to 8

pupils living in Belfast. But she

said that number is expected to

exceed 900 within 10 years, and

is likely to approach 1200 in the

long term.

However, instead of consulting

on a new school, Ms Casey said

the ministry has approached the

Belfast board of trustees with

the idea of a two-campus model

school.

One campus would remain

on Main North Rd and another

would be established near Johns

Rd, each catering for the junior

and senior schools consecutively.

from the editor’s desk

THE NEW motorway that goes from

Belfast and loops past The Groynes on to

the airport and soon to be beyond was

built for a very good reason.

On page 1 today, we show Belfast is one

of the two fastest growing areas in Christchurch.

The population will double in the next 20 years, and plans are

looming for another primary school in the area.

There’s no rocket science in that. With the numbers that are

being predicted, it’ll be the start of a handful of new schools, I

suspect.

When the quakes hit in 2010 and 2011 and it was revealed the

province has several major shallow fault lines, who would have

imagined the city would grow with the speed it is.

Waimairi’s rates now in spotlight

Community board deputy

chairman and accountant

Sam MacDonald has been

crunching the numbers

again and says Waimairi

doesn’t get value for its

rates contribution. Julia

Evans reports

THE WAIMAIRI Ward will put

$80 million of rates into the city

council’s coffers over the next

three years.

But with only $4 million coming

back in capital project funding

for the area, Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board deputy chairman and

rates watchdog Sam MacDonald

doesn’t think that’s a fair deal.

Mr MacDonald, an accountant

by trade, represents the Waimairi

Ward, covering Wairakei

Rd through to Yaldhurst Rd.

“City council staff advise me

that the proposed Long Term

Plan funding allocates $4 million

in capital projects to Waimairi

over the next three years,

compared to a rate take in our

ward of $80 million over that

same period. How is that fair?”

Mr MacDonald previously

told Nor’West News he questioned

what the $100 million

of rates Fendalton, Waimairi

deputy chairman Sam MacDonald doesn’t think residents in

his ward are getting value for money from their rates.

and Harewood residents paid in

the last financial year had been

spent on.

He said now, he really can’t

see how ratepayers are getting

value for their money.

“I have ratepayers calling or

emailing me on a regular basis

asking for roads to be fixed,

drainage to be sorted and for

parks to be maintained to an

acceptable level,” he said.

Mr MacDonald has been

campaigning for the city council

to “get the basics right” such as

roading, water and rubbish collection,

before spending excessive

amounts on other projects.

He said a lot of the main roads

in the area are still in poor condition

following the February

22, 2011, earthquake, and are

in need of “serious” structural

repair.

“It’s staggering to find that we

are effectively paying for contentious

and expensive projects

like CBD cycleways, while at the

same time facing in excess of

five per cent annual rate rises.”

Mr MacDonald is urging local

residents to make submissions

on the Long Term Plan so

that city councillors hear the

ongoing sense of frustration

with its performance and

continual rate rises.

“I am encouraging ratepayers

to make their voices heard in

these upcoming submissions.

This frivolous spending spree

needs to stop – let’s prioritise

getting the basics right first.”

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

ST ALBANS CRICKET FIELD

Work on the St Albans Park cricket

field is under way and the main

line for the irrigation is being put

in. Wet weather is causing small

delays and the high water table

is requiring extra gravel in the

trenches to support the pipe. A

sign to inform the public of future

works has been installed on the

temporary fencing around the old

pavilion site. The site for the new

pavilion has been excavated in

preparation for the installation of

its piles.

WRONG SIGN TAKEN DOWN

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board raised the issue of a

potential sign conflict at the corner

of Westminster and Rutland Sts.

City council staff investigated

and found that a sign installed

during construction had not been

removed and as a result conflicted

with the permanent “no right turn”

signs. The temporary signage has

now been removed.

Papanui at the moment

WHEN I stood as a Papanui-

Innes Community Board

candidate in the 2016 local

body election I could see there

was an opportunity for people

to be more engaged with local

government if they had better

access to information about

local issues and the activities of

the city council and community

boards.

There is a lot of detail involved

with their meetings and processes.

Not everybody will read

through the detail of board

agendas and minutes, and it can

be a challenge keeping track of

proposals and opportunities

to submit feedback to the city

council.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board deputy chairwoman

Emma Norrish shared some

great information in the

Nor’West News about what the

board is doing and how the public

can get involved.

The team at the Nor’West News

also deserve credit for excellent

coverage of local issues.

My own contribution is the

Think Papanui Facebook page –

an information source focused

on the Papanui Ward (basically

the suburbs of Papanui, Northcote,

and Redwood).

My aim is to share information

on city council consultations,

community board agenda items

and decisions, local projects in

action, and generally what’s

happening in the community.

All content is now also

published on a website and in a

weekly email newsletter.

Right now there are two

really important plans being

consulted on.

Firstly, consultation is open on

Environment Canterbury’s Long

Term Plan.

Of particular significance to

the Papanui area is the proposal

to discontinue the 107 and 108

bus routes.

The consultation document

also outlines ECan’s revenue and

finance policy (remembering

that we pay rates to ECan as well

as to the city council), and plans

including freshwater management

and air quality.

Feedback on public transport

options and other aspects of

the plan can be given until 26

March.

Secondly, on March 9 the

city council published a consultation

document on the city’s

Long Term Plan.

There may be a number of

proposals in this that are relevant

to the Papanui ward.

Two that have been signalled

already are changes to the cycleway

programme (more spending

and later completion), and

as covered by the Nor’West News

last week, potentially increased

powers for community boards to

act on intersection upgrades.

For more information on the

city’s Long Term Plan keep an

eye on city council communication

channels as well as Think

Papanui (and, I’m sure, the

Nor’West News).

Readers respond to

the article regarding

Environment Canterbury’s

draft Long Term Plan

proposal to cut two Papanui

bus routes.

Avi Lim – Bus cuts to

Northwood will cause serious

hardship to me. I do not drive and

rely on the bus to get around – to

the library, the doctor and to get

groceries. I pay a lot of rates every

quarter and I don’t see why I am

being deprived of this essential

service. Rates keep going up and

services keep being cut down.

This is terrible.

Amanda Woodfield – Very

disappointed to hear of the

Northwood bus route ending. My

daughter uses it to get home from

school. If I can oppose it in any

way let me know.

Vicki Taege – The 107 should

not go as it services the area for

Willowbank. We live very close

to the 108, that bus should go

because whenever I see it go past

in the morning, or at night, there

are never any people using it.

cuts will affect me a lot.

I am a single mother

with two school-age boys,

luckily, I have my mother’s

help to drop the boys off

at the bus stop and then

pick them up from the bus

after school, while I am

working full-time.

If the bus route is cut, the

•From page 1

Ms Casey said the

board of trustees

would be collecting

feedback from the

community on the

two campus model,

which it would

then relay to the

ministry.

“The first phase of engagement

will involve faceto-face

workshops, and will

gather and explore

discussions on the

possibilities of a

second campus,”

she said.

The first workshop

was held on

Monday morning

in the school hall.

Another will be

held tomorrow at

7pm, as well as on Thursday.

The workshops are

open to the public.

“The ideas and themes

boys would have to walk

1km to the nearest bus

stop, and change two buses

to get to school. It means

a normal 10min bus trip

would increase to more

than a one-hour trip from

home to school. They can

get up early in the morning

to do that, but if it takes

more than one hour from

generated through this first

phase will then be used to

construct an online survey

that will make it possible to

identify which ideas have

a wider base of support,”

Ms Casey said.

The survey will be

available in late March

until early April.

If the public did

not support a second

Belfast campus, the

school to home, that will

mean the boys will miss

out on all of their afterschool

activities.

As a Styx Mill resident, I

can tell not so many people

are using the bus, but there

are people who do need the

service, and those people

are normally children, or

elderly, who don’t drive.

ministry would look

on establishing a new

But at this stage there was

no timeline for development

or construction

of the new campus

or school.

In recent years

the school had to

build an additional

11 classrooms and a

new administration

block to cater for its

growing roll.

Belfast is one of two areas

in the city that have had

“area plans” developed by

the city council under the

greater Christchurch urban

development strategy.

Over the last decade,

Belfast has already seen

significant growth, which

the city council said has

“put pressure” on existing

infrastructure and services.

Reduce your power bill

with LED lights

Reducing electricity costs is important

to homeowners, and one simple way to

achieve that is with LED lights. As Bill

Kells of Switched On Building Solutions

points out, these are much cheaper to

run than incandescent or halogen light

bulbs.

They also have the related benefit of

reducing heating costs.

“Incandescent and halogen light bulbs

require air flow over them, so there is a

gap in the ceiling allowing heat to escape

to the roof cavity,” Bill explains.

“The LED light, on the other

hand, doesn’t require air flow and

completely fills the gap, preventing

heat from escaping.”

As well, LED lights are dimmable,

have a life span of 40,000 hours and a

manufacturer’s warranty of five years,

and the price for them has come down

significantly over the last two to three

years.

Switched on Building Solutions

currently has a special offer for replacing

halogen lights with LED lights in existing

homes. The first four lights will be

supplied and fitted for the fixed price

of $240 plus GST, with additional lights

priced at $55 each plus GST.

To arrange a consultation, please

40 homes by 2020 at Cranford basin

• By Julia Evans

AT LEAST 40 houses will be

built in the Cranford basin by

the end of 2020.

In an update on the

Cranford Regeneration Plan

to the greater Christchurch

partnership committee,

the city council said it

has begun the process of

entering memorandums

of understanding with

developers.

The memorandums are

being sought in a bid to

cement a timeframe for the

development, in which 370

homes will be built on 38ha

around the rim of the basin.

The rest of the land would

be used for wetlands, cycle and

walkways.

“To date, a MOU has only

been signed for the Case-

Crozier block, which commits

them to endeavour to deliver

40 of the maximum houses by

the end of 2020,” the report

said.

It said city council staff

are continuing to work with

Grassmere landowners to

finalise the memorandum for

that block, which would see

further houses built, it said.

zoning around Crozier and

Grassmere Sts was to speed up

the process of developing the

basin.

The report also addresses

concerns from Ngāi Tūāhuriri

and Ngāi Tahu about the

effects of stormwater drainage

into Horseshoe Lake, which is

culturally significant.

Said the report: “This matter

can only be dealt with as

part of Ōtākaro Avon River

Corridor Plan.”

“The city council

commitment is to work with

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu,

Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga

and Regenerate Christchurch

to develop options and test

the feasibility of moving

the current Dudley Creek

diversion stormwater

discharge from Horseshoe

Lake.”

The development is a city

council plan to regenerate

former farmland in Papanui

Councillors

to duel in

cycle race

HAVING JUST finished the

Kathmandu Coast to Coast,

Mike Davidson is back on his

bike and getting ready for his

next challenge.

The Papanui Ward city

councillor will be taking on

his colleague, city councillor

Glenn Livingstone for a cycling

duel during Le Race on March

24.

The two councillors have

committed to a sporting

“three-peat” for the year,

taking on the Coast to Coast,

Le Race and the Christchurch

Marathon later in the year.

“I have done Le Race

before, but because of all this

training, I am fitter than

any previous year,” said Cr

Davidson.

“This year I hope to finish

Le Race under four hours, but

most importantly I want to

smash Glenn.”

Cr Livingstone is not too

concerned.

“I just hope that I don’t

embarrass Mike,” said Cr

Livingstone.

Four weeks ago, both

men completed the two-day

individual event of the Coast to

Coast.

TREES, FLOWERS and shrubs

were all on show for the 28th

Papanui-Innes Community

Board garden pride awards.

“There’s a such a lovely feeling

around projects like this, people

are clearly chuffed that their

hard work is recognised and

we all enjoy having a look at

other people’s gardens especially

when they look so wonderful,”

chairwoman Ali Jones said.

Ms Jones said board

members love engaging with

RYMAN HEALTHCARE

It’s got to be good

enough for mum

The Ryman Healthcare story began back

in 1984 when company co-founder Kevin

Hickman visited a resthome and didn’t like

what he saw. There were shared bathrooms

and little in the way of privacy or dignity for

residents.

Deciding he would want something better

for his mum, he teamed up with John Ryder

to start a company with a very simple aim

– the way Ryman Healthcare looked after

people had to be “good enough for mum”.

For more than 30 years Ryman’s villages

have evolved to include resort-style amenities

such as indoor swimming pools, bowling

greens and hair and beauty salons.

The way Ryman care for people and the

systems they use are constantly refined but

their core aim remains the same – everything

they do must be ‘good enough for mum… or

dad’.

Village aim to delight residents

That core aim is certainly reflected at the

Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village in Papanui.

“It’s part of our culture, and deeply

embedded in our philosophy,” village

manager Anna Thomson says, noting that

Ngaio Marsh recently received its four-year

audit certification.

“That’s a significant achievement,” Anna

says, “and it’s something we’re really proud

of. Our aim is to delight our residents and

deliver a very high quality of care, and our

staff receive a lot of positive feedback for that.”

Ngaio Marsh offers independent living,

assisted living and two levels of care, which

residents can receive as their needs change.

From independent townhouse living, and

assisted living in a serviced apartment, to rest

home and hospital care.

“It’s a seamless transition,” Anna says.

“As our residents’ needs change they get

the care they need, while still retaining

their friendships with other residents and

relationships with the staff they know.”

High resident to staff ratios – 1:10 for

resthome care and 1:5 for hospital care,

ensure residents get the best-possible care at

all times.

The unit co-ordinator for the rest home

and hospital, Vicky Boswell, is one of those

responsible for ensuring the quality of care is

continually maintained throughout her team.

Vicky has been with Ngaio Marsh for

two years and loves her job. She started her

working life in aged care, went from there to a

hospital environment, then to a hospice, and

is now back in aged care with Ryman.

“It feels like I’ve come home,” she says.

“Everyone has been so supportive in helping

me update my skills. The whole process is set

up to help staff achieve their goals.”

Vicky finds the myRyman care app

particularly beneficial, as it has the care

Care provided ‘good enough for mum’

Resthome resident Valma Bishop with her grand-daughter Lisa McNicholl, back

and Vicky Boswell.

programme of all her resthome and hospital

residents electronically stored. This enables

caregivers, registered nurses and other staff to

have immediate access to it through the tablet

in their rooms and allows staff to spend more

time with the residents, which they love Vicky

says.

“It also makes families feel more secure.”

The myRyman care app is a leading-edge

computer programme that was specifically

developed by Ryman for Ryman retirement

villages.

The support the Ngaio Marsh team receives

from other Ryman villages also plays an

important part in the care of residents, Vicky

says.

“We have regular conferences and meetings

with management, registered nurses and staff

members from other Ryman villages and we

share information and helpful ideas with each

other. We are constantly looking at what we

can do better.” The village also offers free wifi

and a free clothing labelling service.

Vicky is also a strong advocate of teamwork

among her own staff and says she promotes

that “all the time”.

“We’re a family, and we share the workload

if someone needs help. We’re all here to help

each other, and that goes through the whole

team, including activities co-ordinators,

laundry staff, office staff – everyone.”

One of the key factors that make life so

enjoyable for Ngaio Marsh residents is the

delicious meals, and a new set of menus has

just been introduced. They include three

options for lunch every day – including one

vegetarian.

“The majority of our residents eat better

here than when they were at home,” Anna

says. “We have a wonderful kitchen team who

take pride in what they produce. The quality

and presentation is very high.”

Vicky adds that the residents enjoy the

process of going through the menu each week

and choosing what they will have.

“It’s just like being in a restaurant.”

With safety another crucial factor for

residents and staff, six months ago Ngaio

Marsh had a generator installed, ensuring

continuity of electricity supply.

“That’s one of the Ryman points of

difference,” Anna says, “having things in place

in case something happens. It gives residents

and families peace of mind, and we’ve had

good feedback about it.”

Resthome resident, Valma Bishop, moved

into Ngaio Marsh last September with her

husband Colin, who needed hospital care.

Sadly, Colin passed away shortly after, and

Valma, already a shy person, became very

anxious and withdrawn.

Now, just six months later, she is thriving

and happy, Anna says.

The couple had previously visited Ngaio

Marsh on an open day, and Valma liked it

immediately, although Colin wasn’t keen

to move from their home. As it turned out,

a hospital room was available for him when

he became ill, and Valma was able to move in

with him.

Now she has a lovely room overlooking the

rose garden, and is enjoying retirement village

life.

“It’s amazing how many friends you make,”

she says.

As well as making new friends, Valma has

also reconnected with friends from many

years ago, who also live at Ngaio Marsh.

One of her nine grandchildren, Lisa

McNicholl, says there has been a “total

transformation in grandma”.

“With the help of the staff, and the

environment, this has given her confidence

and she enjoys being here. The staff have been

amazing. Having to come here has been a

blessing in disguise.”

Retirement living and care

at its best!

Schools count down to Maadi Cup

Six days out from the biggest school rowing event of

the year, Andrew King looks at how some of the crews

might fare at Maadi Cup which starts on Monday at Lake

Ruataniwha, Twizel

LAST YEAR St Andrew’s College

took the Maadi Cup back to

Papanui Rd for the first time

in their history, beating out

favourites Christ’s College and

Christchurch Boys’ High in the

under-18 eights.

Their efforts were honoured

at the Nexia New Zealand

Canterbury Sports Awards on

Friday where they were named

outstanding junior

team of the year.

Riley Gain, who

is in charge of

rowing at St Andrew’s,

said none

of the winning

eight from last year are returning

for next week’s Maadi Cup,

which has made for an exciting

time of rebuilding.

“The mood in the camp is one

of excitement and the rowers are

very much looking forward to

heading to the event,” he said.

Maadi Cup starts on Monday

and runs through the week at

Lake Ruataniwha, Twizel.

Earlier this month, CBHS had

a strong showing at the South

Island secondary school champs,

also on Lake Ruataniwha, with

10 gold medals, including victory

in the Fred Strachan Cup in the

SPORTS

under-18 eights in a time of 6min

1.54sec. They also won The Bell

for the top school overall, followed

by Rangi Ruru.

CBHS rowing head coach

Logan Keys said the goal is to do

well across all of the age groups

and build a sustainable programme

in which the under-18

events are always the main target.

“We will be putting some hard

yards in to

ensure we peak

for the main

event,” he said.

They will

face stiff competition

from

North Island school crews, particularly

Hamilton Boys’ High,

which won the under-18 eights

at the North Island secondary

school championships on Lake

Karapiro, Cambridge, this month

in a time of 5min 56.68sec, beating

CBHS’s time by almost 5sec.

When asked who we should

watch out for at CBHS, Keys said

he would rather not put any extra

pressure on his team members by

singling them out.

Rangi Ruru also had a strong

showing with six gold medals at

the South Island champs. They

defended the Kate Strachan

Director of rowing Mark

Cotham said the girls are in very

good spirits after a great regatta

earlier this month.

“They understand that the

training intensity will increase

. . . they have a love/hate relationship

with training at the moment,”

he said.

St Margaret’s head of sports

Helen Belcher said while their

crews had not been finalised yet,

it will have some returning from

the eight which took silver at last

year’s Maadi Cup.

“We expect the North Island

crews to come out strongly so

will be very wary of them across

all grades,” she said.

BE INSPIRED

Beautiful jewellery

in unique designs

Bella Silver in Merivale Mall has been

supplying beautiful jewellery for delighted

customers from Christchurch and further

afield since 1996.

Owner Alfredo Escaip travels around the

world to personally select exquisite pieces

for his store, as well as creating custommade

engagement rings and wedding

bands in his Christchurch workshop.

The range includes precious and semiprecious

stones, the majority of which are

totally natural, set in sterling silver and

gold. Necklaces, bracelets, pendants, rings

are all on display – so many stunning and

unique designs to choose from for gifts or

for a special treat for yourself.

Bella Silver also offers jewellery repairs,

a professional watch repair service, and

watch battery fitting.

Originally a mechanical engineer in

his home country, Mexico, Alfredo made

jewellery as a hobby. Then, after moving to

New Zealand in 1995, he decided to turn

jewellery-making into a full-time career.

As he says, “It’s much more artistic and

creative than engineering.”

Bella Silver is open seven days a week,

so next time you are shopping in Merivale

Mall, stop by and take a look at the

amazing selection. And check out their

website and Facebook page for news and

new arrivals. For further information,

phone 356 2377.

What began life as a 1950s bungalow was

transformed in the 1970s when architecture

in Christchurch was breaking from the

constraints and traditions of the past to

create what is now a truly unique home.

What we have today is an avant-garde

home nestled into the sunny slopes above

Redcliffs. Not only does it bask in sunshine

it enjoys uninterrupted views across the

estuary and up the coastline. The magic of

the setting reflects the magic to be found

indoors. On 3 levels it provides space for

everyone and everything. The main central

floor comprises the entry from the carport

at the front door, open plan kitchen dining

and living, a study/play area, 2 double

bed-rooms which open to a spacious deck

area and a state of the art bathroom. Stairs

descend to a rumpus room/studio which

opens to a paved patio area giving access to

a landscaped contemporary hillside garden.

The upper level provides the main suite

comprising bedroom, en suite and dressing

room and expansive open living space with

floor to ceiling windows. This home exudes

contemporary style with an industrial

minimalist theme.

Open homes Sundays 1.45pm-2.30pm

and Thursdays 7.30pm-8pm.
