Somerfield teacher retires after 40 years

• By Emily O’Connell

A LOVE of teaching, feeling

valued and freedom to do

what he does well has kept

Gavin Stevenson in the job at

Somerfield School for 40 years.

When he first visited the

school, Mr Stevenson recalls

laughing when a teacher said he

had been there for seven years.

“Fancy staying anywhere

for seven years,” Mr Stevenson

remarked.

He said teaching was “always

on his radar,” although he’s not

sure why.

“There were no sort of role

models in the family or anything

like that,” Mr Stevenson

said.

After completing a degree in

sociology and psychology, Mr

Stevenson applied for a one-year

teaching course.

It took a few years of teaching

at different schools and a trip to

Germany before Mr Stevenson

found himself at Somerfield but

when he was there, he didn’t

leave.

“Like all work places you have

your ups and downs and so on

but there is this real sense of

family,” Mr Stevenson said.

Noise

concern

delays

skate

park

• By Emily O’Connell

POTENTIAL SKATE board noise

is holding up the resource consent

for the Halswell Domain skate park.

Earlier this month, Southern View

revealed that the skate park opening

had been delayed until the end of

the year because of issues with the

resource consent application.

Now Southern View can reveal

its application was awaiting further

information from the city council

– which is both the applicant and

the authority that provides consent –

regarding skateboard noise.

On Thursday, city council head

of resource consents John Higgins

said the application is still on hold

as the city council, as the applicant,

is considering the commissioner’s

report on the consent.

Mr Higgins said commissioner

David Mountfort had asked the city

council for clarification about skateboard

kick-ups raised in an acoustic

report.

Mr Mountfort will make a decision

on the resource consent application

based on a recommendation

from the city council processing

officer. •Turn to page 4

from the editor’s desk

Digging in at Linwood

DEAN CALVERT was a pretty useful

boxer in his day, and these days he’s not a

bad sort of a publican.

He’s mine host at the Valley Inn and

when he’s not there he spends a bit of time

travelling the world watching boxing.

He has just returned from the Parker/Joshua fight in Wales

(see page 5). He spent time in the Parker camp, courtesy of fellow

Cantabrian Kevin Barry who trained Calvert during part of his

career.

Like any good publican he also did some industry research

while in Wales: “We organised a good pub crawl one day.”

It was, of course, to check on the menus for new ideas.

Massive opposition to Denton Park plan

• By Emily O’Connell

MOST PEOPLE who made a

submission on Denton Park are

opposed to the city council’s

plans to build a $35.7 million

mega centre on it.

THe hearings panel is

scheduled to have its first

meeting today,

followed by

another one

tomorrow

and a third

on Monday if

required.

Fifty

submitters are

Ross

Houliston

set to speak

to the panel

in support of

their written submission.

THe panel will make a

recommendation on the

proposed changes to the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board. If the

community board approves

these changes, the city council’s

chief executive Karleen Edwards

will then have the final say.

Figures show 84 per cent

of submitters voted against

reclassifying the park and

changing its management plan.

The city council received 1444

submissions, with 530 hard copy

submissions handed in on the

last day.

OPPOSED: Eighty-four per cent of submitters have

voted against reclassifying Denton Park and changing its

management plan.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

This surpasses the 1063

submissions the city council

received on the reinstatement of

Christ Church Cathedral.

In August, city councillors

voted between Warren,

Denton and Kyle parks for the

location of the Hornby Library,

Customer Services and Leisure

Centre. Denton Park was then

chosen.

In order to build on 9766

sq m of Denton Park, the reserve

classification has to change.

The facility’s proposed

location has been highly

controversial with sports clubs

fearful of losing their home

ground to the new centre.

Save Denton Park group treasurer

Ross Houliston said he’s

“pretty happy” with the number

of submitters opposed to the city

council’s plan but believes the

city council will “put this thing

through” anyway.

Ten per cent of submitters

voted for the changes, three per

cent generally supported the

plan but have some concerns

and another three per cent put

no selection.

On Thursday, the city council

released a 1891-page meeting

agenda and a 394-page traffic

management plan.

Mr Houliston said the city

council’s traffic plan “is an absolute

joke.”

He said it has a lot of flaws but

admits he’s not sure if there’s a

good way to make a plan in such

a busy area.

The agenda addresses concerns

which submitters had

such as the effect on the sports

clubs, gifting of land and vehicle

parking.

It also includes a Consultation

and Crime Profile for Hornby.

“Police victimisation data

shows that Denton Park and

Hornby Mall are categorised as

experiencing the highest rates

of crime when compared to all

other mesh blocks nationally,”

it read.

However, it said incidents

have “dropped considerably”

since the closure of the Snafu

Bar and Restaurant on Chalmers

St.

A Crime Prevention Through

Environmental Design report

was carried out and recommendations

for the site included

repositioning the proposed centre

by 8m, creating a pedestrian

only entrance from the northwest

of Chalmers St and removing

the cricket club rooms.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

A week of

orthopedics pAtients

Last week was a busy

orthopedic week at

the clinic. I love an

orthopedic challenge

and as a young

veterinarian I would

have loved to have

studied and specialized

in orthopedic surgery.

Steve and I went to

the UK early on in

our careers and Steve

studied Ophthalmology.

I didn’t think seriously

about doing a surgical

residency back then

as Steve and I were

desperate to get home

to our two dogs, Chief

and Tobias. Thinking

back it would have been

valuable for our Practice,

considering how fast we

have grown and how many surgical cases

we see. I know my limitations and often

we need to refer these cases to orthopedic

specialists for the best outcome, as long as

our client can financially afford this option.

First up was Pluto, an adorable 5 month

old grey

tabby who

suddenly

came

home lame

on his right hind leg. No injuries, bruising or

swellings were noted, although his stifle felt

odd. Pluto was given an anti inflammatory

injection and sent home on room rest. He

returned a few days later having shown no

improvement so I radiographed his pelvis

and right hind leg. What I saw took me by

surprise. Pluto had

completely fractured

his patella (knee cap)

in half! I tried to splint

the leg but cheeky

little Pluto got that

off in no time. He

was cage rested for

1 week and then

rexrayed. As you

can see the gap has

widened between

the patella fragments.

Currently Im seeking

Pluto

Baghera

advice from a referral surgeon as to what is

the best approach for little Pluto.

Baxter is the cutest, calmest 6 month

old Beagle who presented to me initially

4 weeks ago just sore and stiff in his

hindquarters. He had leapt out of the car

and yelped and cowered, as if he had

Open 7 days

pain somewhere. On

examination his left

hind leg had limited

movement. Baxter was

otherwise well, had been

fed a premium puppy

kibble but I was slightly

worried that Baxter may

have a degree of hip

dysplasia. When Baxter

was neutered I xrayed

his hips. I noticed a left

sided femoral neck stress

fracture. We have strictly

rested Baxter and the

rexray taken one month

later showed the fracture

was slowly healing. Luckily

this will come right with

time, premium nutrition

Baxter and taking it easy on the

exercise front.

Baghera, a 6 year old

black DSH, was bought in by the SPCA

one weekend after being found on the

road, unable to move. Luckily he was

microchipped so we found his very worried

owner that day. He came in very cold, in

shock and not able to stand at all. We

immediately placed Baghera on intravenous

fluid, warmed him up with hotties and a

heating pad, administered pain relief and

xrayed his hindquarters. He had suffered 2

pelvic fractures – an acetabular fracture to

the left hip and a sacroiliac

fracture to the right side.

Both these prevented him

from standing, therefore

he couldn’t use his litter

tray. He was hospitalized

for a few days to make sure

he had bladder function

and to stabilize his

condition. All the surgical

options were discussed ( one being referral)

with his loving owner and it was decided

that we do surgery at the clinic, performed

by Dr Steve Heap. So far Baghera is home,

mobilizing, tioleting and doing well. Thank

goodness for microchips!

As you can see we often need to consult the

specialists for the best

option and outcome

for our patients. We

have digital xray so

can easily email the

images to the referral

veterinarian and

we will often get a

report back in a few

days. Steve and I are

in the early stages

of building a large

new addition that

will join our existing Practice ( we are just

waiting for council consents). We are very

excited as this will allow us to offer more

services to our clients and to employ more

vets with specialized skills in particular areas,

and a specialized soft tissue and orthopedic

surgeon will be on that list.

Teacher retires after 40 years

•From page 1

He said he’s contemplated retirement

“various times” in the past

five years.

But when he finally made the call

to retire last year, Mr Stevenson

said he “didn’t regret it at all.”

Mr Stevenson said he’s been using

the extra time to mountain bike

and walk.

He leaves for a five-week holiday

in Europe on Anzac Day.

And when he returns, he will be

back at the school relieving two

days a week until the end of the

year.

“It’s a cool way to do it. I couldn’t

just stop . . . this way it’s the best of

both worlds,” he said.

Noise concern delays skate park

•From page 1

In his report, Mr Mountfort

said there is a “complete

difference of opinion”

from experts on

kick-ups.

“By this I do not

mean any actual

trick. It’s simply the

action of the rider

flipping up the board

to catch one end of

it in a hand, causing

the other end

to strike the ground,” the

report read.

Mr Mountfort said he

needs to be “very sure”

that the maximum level

of the noise source is

at a “permissible level”

before he can conclude the

residents are not affected

parties.

City council

head of parks

Brent Smith said

if it gains consent,

the Halswell

Domain skate

park will be built

in stages, with

construction set

to start at the end of August.

He said the skate park

would then be completed

This has been a happy family home for many years, but a change in circumstances creates an

opportunity for another family to move in and enjoy this lovely property. The views are hard

to beat, across the city to the mountains and sea beyond. The substantial home is configured

to offer great flexibility for all sorts of households, with a semi self-contained area that could

be fantastic for extended family.

The main areas of the home are upstairs where living, dining and kitchen are open plan, all

with aspects of the view. The living room opens through ranch sliders to a wooden deck that

wraps around the house and also connects to the master bedroom. A large kitchen area with

room for casual dining is a few steps up from the living spaces and connects to a private and

sheltered outdoor area at the rear of the property.

The master bedroom has an ensuite, and there are two other bedrooms upstairs along with

the main bathroom facilities, which are separated into 3 rooms, making it a practical and

convenient home for busy households. Downstairs a spacious entrance and stairway area

opens into a double bedroom with adjoining living and kitchen area, which in turn connects

to a large games room. These are all generous spaces with myriad uses. The whole downstairs

area has it’s own large outdoor area where of course the views take centre stage.

There is a double garage with easy drive on access and off street parking. The timeless design

of the house offers the next owners potential to update without breaking the bank. Whatever

the next owner plans it will be the views that capture the heart and spark the imagination.

PUBLICAN: Dean Calvert (left) turns back the clock as he poses in

22-year-old pro boxer. (Above) – Joseph Parker fighting Anthony

Joshua in Cardiff.

Former champ hooks up with Parker

• By Gordon Findlater

VALLEY INN Tavern owner

Dean Calvert got closer

than most to Joseph Parker

in the build up to his world

heavyweight title unification

fight with Anthony Joshua in

Cardiff, Wales.

The former New Zealand titleholder

travelled with his father

George and brother Bryce to

London ahead of the fight where

they spent time with Parker in

the build up.

Mr Calvert, 47, comes from a

boxing mad family.

Their love for the sport has

seen them travel to a number

of high profile fights around

the world, including the Floyd

Mayweather Jr v Manny

Pacquiao fight in Las Vegas in

2015.

However, the world title fight

between Parker and Joshua on

Easter Sunday was unlike any

the family had travelled to see

before. They were made to feel

like part of the Parker family in

the build up to his biggest fight

to date.

Mr Calvert’s main connection

to the Parker camp comes

through Parker’s trainer Kevin

Barry, who also trained Mr

Calvert in the early 1990s.

“We got made to feel like part

of the family. His mum would

come down to breakfast every

morning and say hello and give

us a hug and a kiss,” said Mr

Calvert.

“We were lucky enough to

be invited on his team walk

the morning of the fight. It’s

something he does the morning

of his fights; just goes for a 15min

walk to relax.”

Mr Calvert won four New

Zealand titles in his career as a

welterweight. He also won the

Jameson Belt in 1992. The belt is

awarded to the best boxer at the

national championships each

year.

Mr Calvert’s first boxing

trainer was his grandfather

Ryan Mitchell. This was before

he worked with Barry who was

training David Tua at the same

time.

Mr Calvert had 70 amateur

fights before going on to register

a professional record of eight

wins from eight fights. He took

what was originally set to be

a short break from fighting at

24. However, Mr Calvert never

returned to training.

“I do regret it sometimes, but

then I’ve had a lot of other great

memories since doing other

things.”

After boxing, Mr Calvert

worked for his family cleaning

business for 17 years before

buying the Valley Inn Tavern in

2004.

“I like the social side. It’s a

good place to catch up with

friends and the locals.”

Although Mr Calvert was

Millennium Stadium 10 rows

back from the action, he says the

Valley Inn Tavern is as good a

place as any to watch the fight.

“We were chock-a-block for the

Parker fight. We had a couple of

hundred people here, every time

he’s fought it’s been like that.”

Outside of boxing, the tavern

owner managed to find time for

some business research.

“We organised a good pub

crawl one day.”

“I bought a few menus to have

a good look at. We’ve got a few

more vegans asking for meals at

the moment so the main thing

I looked at was a few different

options for that.”

As for the future of his

favourite boxer, Mr Calvert

believes at just 26, Parker has

the determination to bounce

back.

“He was talking to us on the

plane on the way home and

he’s just determined to get

back in there and get back to

the top.”

Students dig in at Linwood College

LINWOOD College students are

digging in to help transform their

school’s landscape.

A naturalised area is being developed

at the college as part of the $9

million Bells Creek flood protection

project.

A dual-use stormwater basin and

sports field is being built on the

northern half of Edmonds Park.

As a result, Bells Creek has been

realigned through the college.

More than 2000 plants will be

introduced as part of the overall

development.

The college’s environmental group

is working with students, a contractor

and city council staff to plant up

to 300 plants on the school grounds.

“By involving students in the project,

we aim to nurture their interest

in the natural environment,” acting

city council land drainage manager

Tim Joyce said.

“We hope that they can embrace

the value of a flourishing environment

that benefits the greater community,”

he said.

Said Helen Mora, Linwood College

head of learning area, science:

“This planting gives the group

members their first hands-on opportunity

to action one of their

goals – to improve the plantings

already on Bells Creek ready for

when we come back on-site after the

rebuild.”

or the other side of town. And

the people from the other side of

the world need to be engaged in

the life of the Halswell community

much more than at present.

So, how do people become

engaged in a community? Some

people have said that we need to

organise an event. Others have

said that we need to engage new

arrivals through the schools.

Yet others have said that

people should be encouraged to

share their stories through the

Halswell newsletter.

All of these are really good

ideas and various people are

working on them right now. But

there is something far simpler.

When you go for a walk, and you

meet someone, smile – or even

residents

even if it’s

as simple as

saying “hello”

to someone

on your walk.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Fire rages, homes at risk

say “hello”. It doesn’t need to be

any more than this.

At this basic level, just

acknowledging a person tells

them they are welcome, and that

they matter. It isn’t important

whether the person you encounter

looks like you, or looks quite

different. Underneath, we’re all

the same and we all need to feel

“at home”.

Once you have found that the

people you meet will often smile

back or smile back next time

they see you, you could think

about the next step.

So: who is the person living

next door to you? I remember

when we arrived in Halswell in

1991 as unwilling migrants from

Dunedin moving to get work.

Next door neighbours Keith and

Susan came over with a cake to

welcome us. What a wonderful

gesture. Why not try it? And if

you are from the other side of the

world or other side of the city –

welcome to Halswell!

Joanne McMaster –

Outstanding. This is exactly the

support we need, well done city

council for stepping up.

Golf club merger plan fails to tee off

OPPONENTS OF the Rawhiti

Regenerate Christchurch has

However, Mr Zilinskas said

personally he was disappointed.

“I thought it was a great opportunity

their plea on the final day of site submissions,

saying they had included several

Year 6 pupil Reine Pene, 10, strongly

supports “the plan of putting the new

pool on the corner of Smith St.”

“It is important to know how to

swim,” she said.

“If we are lucky enough to have the

pool in Smith St, I would also like a diving

Said Regenerate chief

Ms Buck said the youngsters have

highlighted their support for an indoor

“We want the children to come to the

their case for the new pool site, underlining

its importance for the area,” she said.

All feedback will now be considered by

will go to the community

A RARE white heron has made a

Lake Forest.

The bird, which is endangered

and one of a population of about

150 around New Zealand, has

been spotted in the area by city

City council ornithologist Andrew

Crossland says it’s the first

time he has heard of a white heron

visiting the ponds.

Work that has been carried

out by city council rangers in recent

years to create wetland habitats

and attract native birds seems

to have been effective, he says.

“It’s a bit of a coup to get an

iconic native bird like this one in

the area.’’

Mr Crossland says the heron is

an adult in non-breeding plumage

and is likely to have come here

from breeding grounds on the

Musicians

wanted for

Sumner band

• By Sarla Donovan

ONE OF the oldest brass bands in

Canterbury is on the hunt for new

blood.

The Sumner Brass Band started

in the 1880s and played together

until World War 2.

In 1950, a public meeting decided

the district should once again

have a brass band of its own – and

the Sumner Silver Band was born

under bandmaster G. F. Sauer (the

father of John Sauer who retired

from playing cornet at the end of

last year.)

And Sumner has had its silver

band on and off ever since.

Peter Croft has played with

them for the past 18 years.

He said the reason for the name

change could be because initially

brass was cheaper than silver

plated – but they were now about

the same.

The band meets for practice

once a week on Thursday evenings,

7.30-9pm at the Redcliffs

Mt Pleasant Bowling Club.

Mr Croft said anybody able

to read music and play a ‘brass’

instrument is welcome to join.

Bid to revamp war memorial

• By Sophie Cornish

NEW BRIGHTON’S south

ramp and the war memorial

could be revamped.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board has asked for

$200,000 from the city council’s

Long Term Plan 2018-2028 for

the project.

The plan would include getting

rid of the contentious anti-graffiti

panels on the war memorial.

Board chairwoman Kim

Money said it would be a “collaborative

project” with the

New Brighton RSA and the

community, which she hopes

would showcase the foreshore

area better, for the national and

international events which are

held there.

“The idea has came about for

various reasons, one being that

the community and RSA were

very disappointed with the look

of the panels which had gone

around the memorial.”

“At the same time, we have had

the lovely new development to

the north of the pier and we have

big events that we use the space

south of the pier for . . . we want

to take this opportunity to relook

at that space because we are

within a regeneration stage.”

Coastal-Ward city councillors

Glenn Livingstone and David

East have both expressed interest

knowing they are roadworthy and your

family is safe.”

If tyres do need replacing, JCM Direct

offers a wide variety of quality brands at

very competitive prices. They have new

FOCUS ON HEALTH

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults

& as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most

deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass & the lowest

scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration &

brain performance. Another study showed that older people with

higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains &

score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet

another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage & declining cognitive

function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health,

regulation of mood & sleep cycles, nerve health & repair, &

prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor

that is known to cause damage & plaque in the blood vessels. It can

also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a

34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+

who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk

of hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s

ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system

becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication & other drugs

further reduce B12 absorption. The

one natural beauty oil available. According to ethnobotanist Chris

Kilham, Dilo is a powerful skin regenerator, as it is one of the most

effective agents in promoting the regeneration & formation of new

skin tissue. It is super-absorbing & can penetrate all three layers of

the skin, offering exceptional cell hydration & regeneration. Dilo

contains powerful antibacterial, antioxidant & anti-inflammatory

properties which promotes the growth of healthy & glowing skin.

Organic Argan oil (or liquid gold) is the next amazing oil that

is extremely rich in beneficial nutrients, fatty acids & vitamin E. It

gives the skin a youthful glow restores elasticity & leaves the skin

feeling plumper & softer.

Wild Rosehip is the final powerful oil. It is known to hydrate the

skin & correct skin damage over a period of time. It is well known

to help with scars, stretch marks, age spots, skin pigmentation &

reduce the signs of premature aging.

Ear Health Canterbury has been

providing a microscopic ear cleaning

service in Canterbury for 19 years

From small beginnings in 1999

where monthly clinics were held in the

Christchurch Hearing Association in

Beveridge Street the service expanded

rapidly as clients discovered and

appreciated the benefits of micro suction

technology.

Twelve months later clinics had

increased to 5 days a week and with the

help of more trained Registered nurses

and Reception staff clinics opened in

Rangiora, Ashburton Timaru Temuka

and Waimate.

In 2004 the clinic moved with the

Hearing Association to larger premises

at 275 Riccarton Road. They remain

there today offering a Monday to

Saturday service and a popular and busy

mobile service to Retirement Villages,

Rest Home residents and to people with

mobility difficulties in their private

homes.

While a weekly clinic is still held in

Ashburton, the South Canterbury clinics

are now under new Management.

Many conditions affecting the outer

ear canal can be treated and monitored

at Ear Health including infections,

relieving impacted wax and removal of

foreign bodies. Preventative education is

also offered and for those with hearing

aids due to sensorineural hearing loss

Ear Health has accredited ACC and War

Pension funding

This safe, accessible, affordable ear

care is provided to all age groups in a

client focused environment with the

nurses working collaboratively with

General Practitioners, Audiologists,

Hearing Therapists and Secondary Care

Consultants.

Maintaining good ear hygiene has

many benefits. It can improve hearing

and balance, reduce the symptoms of

tinnitus, improve the effectiveness of

hearing aids and reduce the incidence of

aural infections. Most importantly, this

then enhances quality of life.

competition

winning team.

Marian wins public

speaking contest

MARIAN COLLEGE is “buzzing” after

proving itself to be the best Catholic

school in the Canterbury Catholic Diocese

for public speaking, said principal Mary-

Lou Davidson.

The school finished first overall out of

seven schools in the Bishop Lyons’ Shield

competition held at Villa Maria College.

The team of 10 won the debating and

senior speech sections, were first equal in

scripture reading and junior speech, and

third equal in religious questions.

Mrs Davidson said the event was highly

anticipated and celebrated the spirit of

competition and camaraderie between

participating schools.

“The result was an amazing effort by

the whole team. The Marian community

is buzzing with news of the win, we have

had past students and parents contact us

to congratulate the girls. All the hard work

that was put in leading up to the competition

from both students and coaches has

paid off.”

The competition was established by

Bishop Lyons in 1947 when he was bishop

of Christchurch.

Mrs Davidson said it was the second

year this particular Marian College debating

team had won its event.

“Some of the team had older sisters who

had competed and won in past Bishop

Lyons’ Shield events, so it is lovely to see

family traditions continuing,” she said.

This year the scripture reading event

was held in Te Reo Māori for the first

time. Students read a scripture passage

in Te Reo as well as answered questions

about what the passage means and how it

applies to young people today.

Year 12 student Ngahiraka Dallas was

awarded first equal in scripture reading

with a St Bede’s College student.

This is the fourth year Marian College

has won the shield. It previously won it in

1995, 2009 and 2015.

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Whether it be a new build, or

a retrofit, most homes include

at least one heat pump, if not a

whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are

much more convenient than a log

burner as you just need to press

a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right

sized heat pump is key to ensuring

optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional

advice from heat pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it is

important to select

the correct size for

Heating is a major

investment in your home

and it is vital to get the

right advice.

your requirements

that will handle

the job but not

be unnecessarily

overpowered.

Secondly, the

location of your

heat pump is also extremely important. The

cheapest installation is a back to back where

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems

and price, so it depends on your application as

to which will be most suitable. Major brands

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands

backed up by good technical after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but also

validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time

clocks, ease of use of

the remote controllers,

air filtration and also

wifi capabilities.

Heating is a major

investment in your

home and it is vital to

get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

to which system will suit your application

landlord requirements. We have all major brands and offer the chance to win

a $5000 Gold Coast Holiday with every heat pump, insulation or ventilation

purchase prior to December 2018.

Summer cooling

“Did you know your heat pump is an air

conditioner?” BUT!! If you bought it for

heating it will struggle to cool the area as

cooling is always less output e.g. Mitsubishi

cooling. So always ask your installer if you

want cooling as well as heating. We at Air

Con Christchurch always advise what we have

quoted for.

Cooling tips

Select “Cooling” and set at 20 – 22 degrees this

will save you up to 30% running costs and still

be cool (try it and see). 16 degrees is too low.

Whether it plain sucks, or whether it

doesn’t suck enough, or even if it is a noisy

sucker - Smooth-Air can help.

Smooth-Air can either improve your

current Range Hood, or custom build to

your specifications.

“We can take your attractive but noisy,

underperforming range hood and retrofit

it with one of our whisper quiet remote

extraction fans.” says Richard Jack, Regional

Manager of Smooth-Air, “We have fans

which can sit in the ceiling space, or outside

on your wall or roof to make it extra quiet.”

In-house testing showed a difference of

20dbA (decibels) between a remote fan

from Smooth-Air and a common in-hood

fan range hood. This corresponds to a

quadrupling in perceived noise level.

Range Hood conversions include removal

of existing fan and rewiring for

new remote fan. Your local sparky

can easily carry out installation of

the new fan.

For kitchens not suited to a

standard range hood, Smooth-Air

can manufacture and powdercoat

a bespoke range hood to match

your décor. Custom built range

hoods have the benefit of being

designed specifically for your

Moisture in your home can cause mould

It is also bad for the health of the occupants.

Household cooking is a major source of

internal moisture, therefore an effective

kitchen extraction system can make a

significant difference to internal moisture

age.

discussing a wide range of issues in the next

and some I don’t and I can tell that they do

not all agree with each other. So they discuss

intently then they laugh and have lunch

together. They continue to sort out the world

and issues as far apart as Use of Technology,

Autonomous vehicles, Importance of Art,

Relevance of religion, Veganism, City

transport, Competition in sport, The moral

Ultimate campus

taking shape at QEII

Park

Sue and John.

advertising feature

Construction of the new state-of-the-art campus for Avonside

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools is progressing

rapidly with opening on track for next year.

The new campus will feature a Performing Arts Centre

with a 750-seat theatre and a 200-seat theatre, a hockey turf,

four sports fields, three indoor gymnasiums, a café, and a

large library and learning centre.

Both Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume and Shirley Boys’

High School Headmaster John Laurenson are excited by the

progress.

“There are now more than 100 workers on site – that will

peak to more than 300 in coming months. The steel framing

is up and the concrete slabs are down and we can see now

just how big this campus will be – it’s simply wonderful,” says

John Laurenson.

“You can finally see all that we have been talking about and

dreaming about taking shape. We will be onsite with our

students, staff and community making the most of all of the

fantastic new facilities before we know it.”

The campus is due to open in Term Two of 2019. It will be

the first time in New Zealand’s history that two single sex

schools will be co-located.

John Laurenson says the co-location will enable the schools

to offer students more.

“Because we’re building together, we’ve been able to build

bigger and better facilities.”

Sue Hume says the co-location will also enable better educational

opportunities.

“We’ll collaborate on teaching some senior subjects, so we

can offer students wider choice and there’s also the opportunity

to work together on co-curricular opportunities – such

as productions, sports competitions and the like.”

Both principals are keen to point out that the co-location is

not a merger.

“We’ll still be Shirley and they’ll still be Avonside. We’ll

work together, but both schools will retain their own culture,

identity, staff and uniform. This is not a co-ed school,” says

John Laurenson.

“Research shows that single sex education benefits both

boys and girls,” says Sue Hume. “Boys perform better academically

and girls participate more. This new campus, has

been designed so that students will still spend most of their

time in a single sex environment.”

Both Sue and John say the campus will be an asset the east

of Christchurch will be proud of.

“We’ll be right alongside the new QE2 Sport and Recreation

Centre, the School of Gymnastics and have a satellite

unit for Ferndale School onsite. It’s going to be a great place

to learn.”

Catholic Cathedral

College -

To live by faith

Catholic Cathedral College is first and

foremost a Catholic school and for 150 years

Catholic children of Christchurch have been

educated on this site. We aim to produce

graduates who are confident, compassionate,

connected citizens, willing to make a positive

contribution to our society with a focus on

faith, justice and equity.

As the only co-ed Catholic College in

Christchurch, with a vibrant mix of ethnicities,

we offer excellent preparation for life.

We have a strong focus on our bicultural

heritage and all students from Year 7 to 9

learn Te Reo Maori.

We encourage our students to strive for

excellence and have had sustained excellent

academic results over recent years for all students,

including Maori and Pasifika students,

across all three levels of NCEA.

Our Vocational Pathways programme

offers individualised programmes giving students

access to a range of tertiary providers.

If you are looking for a Catholic faith-based

education, please visit us on our Open Evening

and experience the special atmosphere

and sense of family that is so evident.

Cashmere High

School – future ready

The good thing about our unpredictable

and changeable future is that it comes one

day at a time – and humans have successfully

navigated dramatic changes and shifts

in periods of our history. Schools, like other

businesses, are busy thinking and planning

to best prepare for the complex modern

and technologically focused future world.

Cashmere is a school with clear direction in

a time of uncertainty.

Here at Cashmere High School

we are future ready, thanks to

our new property works,

successful implementation

of our BYOD (Bring Your

Own Device) programme,

personalised learning

pathways and consistently

excellent educational outcomes.

Mark Wilson, Principal

We have just completed Stage

1, and are well into Stage 2, of our

Christchurch Schools Rebuild programme.

This will deliver modern vibrant facilities

that provide good conditions (e.g. acoustics

and temperature), are digitally connected

(e.g. wifi), and allow for genuinely flexible

learning (e.g. both traditional and innovative

approaches). All our students use their own

digital device (BYOD) to learn not only the

content but also digital skills (e.g. cybersafey)

to equip them for the modern world.

SOUTHERN VIEW

Yet learning is not restricted to digital tools,

with plenty of time for physical exercise and

hands-on practical experiences. Our personalised

learning includes offering broad

curriculum choices and relevant support for

both gifted and talented and those requiring

learning support.

Our consistently outstanding NCEA results

open up personalised pathways for students

– whether this involves moving

onto higher tertiary studies

(e.g. universities) or through

into trades and apprenticeships.

Our staff recognise

and support students to

find their own individual

passions and future pathways.

As a community state school

we also offer our students a safe environment

to socially mix with a wide range

of students and develop the competencies

to live and work in a diverse global society.

We are proud of our mission statement that

means we focus on “developing both the

intellect and character of our students” – in

order to craft well balanced young people

confident in realising their potential in the

modern world.

Middle schooling

makes a difference

Having a curriculum and learning environment

designed specifically for learners in the

“middle years” (Years 7-10) is essential to

ensure high levels of motivation and engagement

in learning during these crucial years.

At Hillmorton High School, having a

consistent approach without a transition to a

new school between Year 8 and 9, is proving

to be positive in terms of accelerating

student learning within the Middle School.

We are currently working with our architects

designing a new Middle School building

with 22 “General Learning Areas”. These

areas are flexible and can operate as single

cell classrooms or be opened up to allow

more adaptable learning spaces; the best of

both worlds. This building will not disrupt

learning as it is being built on the current

tennis courts.

This environment fits well with our broad

Middle School curriculum which allows

learners to explore and find both their

strengths and passions.

The advantage of combining the skills of

specialist Year 7 and 8 teachers, with the secondary

subject specialists gives our Middle

School learners significant advantage. Additionally,

our “Big Day Out” events and end

of year student electives allow our young

people to learn in a range of environments,

often participating in social action such as

planting, working with the elderly, along

with exploring the city, the Art Gallery and

the university.

Our Middle School is ensuring real educational

success and positive future prospects

as students move into the Senior School for

Years 11-13.

What’s important at Hagley, a school with a

Our values matter. Those values

are seen in the relationships our

It’s how we treat our students

that sets Hagley apart, valuing them

as individuals – that is the Hagley

We’re often asked, what makes Hagley different?

We have a culture like no other. No one

wears a uniform and everyone’s on a first name

basis. But that’s just for starters. Students come

to Hagley because they’re treated with respect,

accepted for who they are as unique individuals.

They know it’s cool to be

different!

We love our students aiming

high and doing well. We

believe there is no single stereotype

When asked what they most want for their

children, the answer that comes back from

parents with resounding consistency is happiness.

One of the really important building

blocks of happiness is strong relationships,

and at Hornby High School we take great

pride in the work that we do to build and

maintain strong relationships throughout the

school. We understand that these relationships

have to be learning focussed, because it

is your child’s learning that matters, and that

these relationships have to be built within

your own cultural context, because to each of

us our culture grounds us in who we are.

These are exciting times for Hornby High

School as work on our school rebuild

proceeds. We move into the first of our new

buildings at the end of term 2 this year.

These new buildings offer a mix of public

and private spaces that match the learning

needs of individual students. They have been

designed to exploit what we call the ‘synergies

‘of different subject areas that is to allow

those logical real world connections to be

easily discovered and experienced by students.

All of this is grounded in programmes

that promote basic literacy and numeracy

skills while also allowing students to develop

the communication, creativity, thinking

and collaborative skills that our new world

demands.

Join us as we work towards our aspiration

to be “A centre of creative excellence He

Formation is at the heart of the education

Middleton Grange School provides – a

whole of life formation. We see learning as

holistic; it aims to instruct the mind, shape

the heart and equip the hand. The root of

formation is faith and so Middleton Grange

not only provides a first rate general education

but also biblically based teaching in the

Christian faith.

Formation of the mind is not primarily

intellectual contemplation or conceptual

mastery but a learning that nurtures wisdom

and discernment. It is a learning that

challenges the mind to think, discern and

critique the ideas and theories pupils are

exposed to from a Christian perspective.

Middleton Grange’s learning culture allows

SOUTHERN VIEW

the formation of the heart so that it shapes

the character of each pupil to develop habits

of righteousness, compassion and integrity.

This formation of the mind and heart generates

responsiveness. We want our pupils to

engage in the society they live in, to be of

benefit and blessing in a practical way.

For Middleton Grange School, while our

academic results are of the highest level,

what is highly prized, is that our pupils

exercise wisdom, serve the community and

promote the well-being of others. It is about

forming the pupil to be the person God created

them to be.

All of this is summed up in the school

motto: Character, Excellence, Service for the

Glory of God.

Integrated

Schools

Working together for the good of students

and families has been a successful recipe

for Christian Integrated Schools in Christchurch.

The Christian School Network has been

in existence for over ten years. Aidanfield

Christian School, Emmanuel Christian

School, Hillview Christian School and

Middleton Grange School decided in 2005

that there was much to be gained by working

together cooperatively. They recognised

opportunities to share successful teaching

practice, curriculum development initiatives

across a wide spectrum of school operations

as well as cooperatively strengthening their

special Christian Character. They recognised

that their ability to serve students and

families was greatly enhanced by working

together in a close and trusting relationship.

The success of the network has seen other

schools wanting to join in. Early in the piece

Rangiora New Life School became part of

the network. The schools joined together to

support the genesis of Ashburton Christian

School and also culminated in the start up of

a brand new school in Rolleston in 2015.

The schools have developed interlocking

enrolment schools which assists in providing

transparent pathways in Christian education

from new entrant through to Year 13.

A further strength has been a cooperative

engagement with the Ministry of Education

who have been pivotal in assisting the

networks successful development.

Papanui High -

Preparing students

for their future

Giving students the opportunity to study

from an innovative and broad curriculum is

critical to providing each student a pathway

that meets their individual needs. We

allow for a greater range and flexibility in

subject choice including the utilization of

the secondary/tertiary interface.

This reinforces the philosophy

underpinning personalised

learning and is strongly

supported by understanding

our students’

interests, passions,

talents, and ultimately

their career aspirations.

We understand that

for effective learning

to take place, it has to be

implemented in such a way

that students will be highly engaged.

The school does this in a ‘forward

thinking’ way by creating learning environments

that allow our students to see value in

what they do and achieve. Papanui “PRIDE”

is what we represent and we demonstrate

this by having young adults leave our school

as confident learners who have gained the

appropriate qualifications and social skills

to become valued contributing members of

society.

All that we do here is reinforced by positive

lessons.
