Plan for Brougham St bottleneck<br />

NZTA moves<br />

to ease<br />

congestion<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

ONE OF the city’s busiest roads<br />

is set to have its congestion issues<br />

addressed.<br />

Brougham St “corridor improvements”<br />

have been included<br />

in the draft transport agency<br />

investment proposal <strong>2018</strong>-27<br />

released by the New Zealand<br />

Transport Agency.<br />

About 44,000 vehicles,<br />

including 5000<br />

freight, use the<br />

thoroughfare<br />

from the Selwyn<br />

district to<br />

Lyttelton Port<br />

each day.<br />

“The<br />

Brougham St,<br />

Jim Harland<br />

State Highway<br />

76 project is<br />

identified as a<br />

proposed activity, which means<br />

it will continue to be developed,<br />

subject to its new alignment with<br />

the Government policy statement<br />

on land transport priorities,”<br />

NZTA direction regional relationships<br />

Jim Harland said.<br />

The proposal includes a<br />

budget of between $10<br />

million-$100 million for the<br />

upgrades to increase flow along<br />

the street.<br />

The work would be completed<br />

before 2021, while a detailed<br />

business case and design<br />

would begin when the plan<br />

was approved by Environment<br />

Canterbury’s regional transport<br />

committee before August 31.<br />

The plan said NZTA will work<br />

with partners, including the<br />

city council and Selwyn District<br />

Council, to “investigate appropriate<br />

solutions” to congestion along<br />

Brougham St to the Rolleston<br />

Corridor, which connects Selwyn<br />

to the Lyttelton Port.<br />

“Doing so will improve customer<br />

access between the south<br />

of the city to Lyttelton Port<br />

and help reduce congestion in<br />

Christchurch’s south-western<br />

suburbs,” the plan said.<br />

It comes as last week’s <strong>Southern</strong><br />

<strong>View</strong> reported, Selwyn <strong>May</strong>or<br />

Sam Broughton had raised<br />

concerns about congestion on the<br />

motorway during the city council’s<br />

Long Term Plan hearings.<br />

Mr Broughton said he anticipates<br />

congestion will get worse<br />

the longer the corridor is left as<br />

it is.<br />

“The southern end of the motorway<br />

connecting to Brougham<br />

St is a major cause of transport<br />

delays to the wider travelling<br />

public, which is expected to<br />

get worse as time goes on,” Mr<br />

CONGESTION:<br />

Brougham St has<br />

been identified as<br />

Broughton said.<br />

This was inevitable with the<br />

expected population increases in<br />

both Selwyn and Christchurch,<br />

he said.<br />

City council manager planning<br />

and delivery transport<br />

Lynette Ellis said it would work<br />

with NZTA to “effectively and<br />

efficiently” keep the transport<br />

network running, including<br />

Brougham St.<br />

IT’S ABOUT time big retailers did their part to tackle the global<br />

issue of plastic waste.<br />

Countdown Ferrymead will go plastic bag-free on Monday<br />

(see page 3).<br />

It is one of 10 Countdown stores making the move throughout<br />

New Zealand.<br />

The stores will be used to test the change and gather customer<br />

feedback before further changes are made to all 182 stores.<br />

Customers will have to take their own bags, buckets or boxes<br />

to carry their shopping.<br />

It may take a while to get used to, but habits can be changed<br />

and soon enough we will learn to take our own bags.<br />

It’s a great step in the right direction and I hope more businesses<br />

will follow.<br />

Supermarket goes plastic bag-free<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

Kiri Hannifin<br />

COUNTDOWN Ferrymead<br />

will go plastic-bag free on<br />

Monday.<br />

It’s one of 10 supermarkets<br />

nationwide the company has<br />

chosen would be single-use plastic<br />

bag-free by the start of June.<br />

Customers at the Ferrymead<br />

store will need to bring their<br />

own “bags, or bucket or box<br />

. . . whatever they want,” said<br />

Countdown<br />

general manager<br />

corporate<br />

affairs, Kiri<br />

Hannifin.<br />

Since it announced<br />

its decision<br />

to phase<br />

out single-use<br />

plastic carrier<br />

bags last year, Countdown<br />

customers had already reduced<br />

their use of plastic bags by just<br />

over 16 per cent, she said.<br />

“We’re really heartened so<br />

many of our customers are<br />

already really committed to using<br />

less plastic when they shop<br />

with us. However, we know the<br />

biggest barrier to change is to<br />

get into a new habit of bringing<br />

your own bags. We’re starting<br />

to talk with customers in these<br />

first 10 stores now and are really<br />

looking forward to helping them<br />

make the switch as easily as<br />

possible.”<br />

Countdown is moving to get<br />

rid of the environmentallydamaging<br />

bags in the 10 supermarkets<br />

across the country by<br />

Christmas.<br />

The others are in Blenheim,<br />

Auckland, Wellington, Gisborne,<br />

Dargaville and Whanganui.<br />

Selected stores represent a<br />

range of sizes, checkout and<br />

bag carousel layouts, cities and<br />

smaller towns, said Ms Hannifin.<br />

They would be used to test<br />

“If (customers) get caught<br />

short, our popular black reusable<br />

bags are just $1. We’ll also<br />

have other alternatives available<br />

which you’ll see after <strong>May</strong> 21.”<br />

What shoppers<br />

are saying<br />

Lisa Brignull,<br />

of Mt<br />

Pleasant:<br />

“It is a great<br />

idea that we<br />

shall use<br />

fewer plastic<br />

bags with<br />

less waste,<br />

especially on the hills where I<br />

run. It can only be a good thing<br />

and yes, I shall use my own<br />

bags.”<br />

Jeremy<br />

Smith, of<br />

Ferrymead:<br />

“I guess that it<br />

is a good idea<br />

as something<br />

has to be<br />

done to get<br />

rid of the<br />

plastic in the oceans. I usually<br />

forget to bring my bags as I<br />

usually don’t buy a lot, and<br />

I am able to carry most of it.<br />

Boxes of beer have handles<br />

anyway.”<br />

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart<br />

by Holly ringland<br />

The most enchanting debut novel of <strong>2018</strong>, this is an irresistible, deeply moving and<br />

romantic story of a young girl, daughter of an abusive father, who has to learn the hard way<br />

that she can break the patterns of the past, live on her own terms and find her own strength.<br />

After her family suffers a tragedy, nine-year-old Alice Hart is forced to leave her idyllic seaside<br />

home. She is taken in by her grandmother, June, a flower farmer who raises Alice on the<br />

language of Australian native flowers, a way to say the things that are too hard to speak.<br />

Under the watchful eye of June and the women who run the farm, Alice settles, but grows<br />

up increasingly frustrated by how little she knows of her family’s story. In her early twenties,<br />

Alice’s life is thrown into upheaval again when she suffers devastating betrayal and loss.<br />

Desperate to outrun grief, Alice flees to the dramatically beautiful central Australian desert. In<br />

this otherworldly landscape Alice thinks she has found solace, until she meets a charismatic<br />

and ultimately dangerous man.<br />

Spanning two decades, set between sugar cane fields by the sea, a native Australian flower<br />

farm, and a celestial crater in the central desert, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart follows Alice’s<br />

unforgettable journey, as she learns that the most powerful story she will ever possess is<br />

her own.<br />

Hunting El Chapo:<br />

Taking Down the World’s Most-Wanted Drug Lord<br />

by Andrew Hogan, douglas Century<br />

This is the incredible story of D.E.A. Special Agent Andrew Hogan’s seven-year-long<br />

chase to capture El Chapo, a multibillionaire drug-lord and escape-artist posing as<br />

a Mexican Robin Hood, who in reality was a brutal sociopath responsible for the<br />

murders of thousands. His greedy campaign to take over his rivals’ territories resulted<br />

in an unprecedented war with a body count of over 100,000.<br />

This intimate thriller tells how Hogan single-mindedly and methodically climbed the<br />

ladder within the hierarchy of the Sinaloa Cartel – the world’s wealthiest and most<br />

powerful drug-trafficking organization – by creating one of the most sophisticated<br />

undercover operations in the history of the D.E.A. From infiltrating Chapo’s inner circle<br />

to leading a white-knuckle manhunt with an elite brigade of Mexican Marines, Hogan<br />

left no stone unturned in his hunt for the world’s most powerful drug kingpin.<br />

Dictatorland: The Men Who Stole Africa<br />

by Paul Kenyon<br />

The dictator who grew so rich on his country’s cocoa crop that he built a 35-storeyhigh<br />

basilica in the jungles of the Ivory Coast. The austere, incorruptible leader who<br />

has shut Eritrea off from the world in a permanent state of war and conscripted every<br />

adult into the armed forces. In Equatorial Guinea, the paranoid despot who thought<br />

Hitler was the saviour of Africa and waged a relentless campaign of terror against<br />

his own people. The Libyan army officer who authored a new work of political<br />

philosophy, The Green Book, and lived in a tent with a harem of female soldiers,<br />

running his country like a mafia family business.<br />

And behind these almost incredible stories of fantastic violence and excess lie the<br />

dark secrets of Western greed and complicity, the insatiable taste for chocolate,<br />

oil, diamonds and gold that have encouraged dictators to rule with an iron hand,<br />

siphoning off their share of the action into mansions in Paris and banks in Zurich and<br />

keeping their people in dire poverty.<br />

School decision fuels debate<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE ARM-WRESTLE over a<br />

new site for Redcliffs School has<br />

heated up again.<br />

Greater Christchurch Regeneration<br />

Minister Megan Woods<br />

has given approval for changes<br />

to the District Plan, allowing the<br />

school to be built on Redcliffs<br />

Park.<br />

Friends of<br />

Redcliffs Park<br />

spokesman<br />

Chris Doudney<br />

said the minister<br />

had got it<br />

wrong.<br />

“I suspect the<br />

Kate<br />

McClelland<br />

Darren<br />

Fidler<br />

information<br />

she was given<br />

was limited and<br />

she would have<br />

been limited<br />

as to what she<br />

could base her<br />

decision on.<br />

Very much the<br />

same as the<br />

community<br />

board hearing<br />

last August<br />

where our own submission<br />

couldn’t be received or discussed<br />

because the scope of the<br />

argument was limited to considering<br />

the school on the park.”<br />

He said they wanted to get<br />

more information about the<br />

basis for the minister’s decision.<br />

For seven years the school has<br />

been operating from the Van<br />

Asch campus in Sumner, after<br />

earthquake-generated rockfall<br />

at its former site.<br />

In March 20<strong>15</strong> the Government<br />

proposed the school’s closure<br />

but following community<br />

outcry, it agreed in June 2016 to<br />

return the school to Redcliffs –<br />

provided it be established on a<br />

different site.<br />

Deputy principal Kate Mc-<br />

Clelland was “thrilled” the<br />

school will be rebuilt at Redcliffs<br />

Park.<br />

Said Ms McClelland: “After<br />

seven years we’re very excited to<br />

be finally able to return to our<br />

home in Redcliffs. After all the<br />

work that’s been done working<br />

towards this day, we’re thrilled.”<br />

Families and pupils were<br />

notified yesterday morning,<br />

shortly after the decision was<br />

announced.<br />

Board of trustees chairman<br />

Darren Fidler was “happy and<br />

Greater<br />

Regeneration<br />

Minister Megan<br />

Woods has<br />

rezoning of<br />

as a school.<br />

relieved” at the news.<br />

“We can finally get back. It’s<br />

been a long seven years.”<br />

He said it had been an open<br />

and transparent process.<br />

“The minister put out all the<br />

information that she used to<br />

inform her decision so the due<br />

process has been followed . . .<br />

we’re looking forward to getting<br />

back to the core business of<br />

educating kids. That’s all we’ve<br />

ever wanted to do and this has<br />

been a massive distraction from<br />

that.”<br />

A PUBLIC planting and gala day<br />

at Charlesworth Reserve will help<br />

establish native trees and shrubs<br />

in the area.<br />

The reserve is being gradually<br />

developed to re-establish estuaryedge<br />

ecosystem features like saltmeadow,<br />

salt-marsh and coastal<br />

bush.<br />

At present these are either very<br />

rare around the estuary or nonexistent.<br />

Work thus far has included<br />

installation of culverts to allow<br />

tidal flows to enter the reserve,<br />

development of walking tracks<br />

and bridges, a predator trapping<br />

programme and installation of<br />

Chorus sings its way to 11th national title<br />

WINNING IS now second<br />

nature for the Christchurch<br />

City Chorus, which recently<br />

took home first place at the<br />

national Sweet Adelines<br />

competition, for the 11th<br />

time.<br />

The group has finished first<br />

in every national barbershop<br />

competition they have entered<br />

since forming in 1987,<br />

titling themselves the “All<br />

Blacks of singing.”<br />

Singing under the direction<br />

of musical director, Virginia<br />

Humphrey-Taylor, the team<br />

is made up of 130 women,<br />

mainly from Christchurch.<br />

In this year’s competition<br />

held earlier this month, contestants<br />

were assessed by four<br />

international judges from the<br />

United States and Sweden.<br />

Said musical director<br />

Virginia Humphrey-Taylor:<br />

“The judges were excited to<br />

see a performance of such a<br />

high international level. The<br />

beautiful singing and the<br />

high energy field that was<br />

delivered was thoroughly<br />

enjoyed.”<br />

“The women’s chorus has<br />

worked hard for the win, impressing<br />

the judges with their<br />

Cashmere High student<br />

gets boost to achieve goals<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

SPORTS<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

CASHMERE HIGH School<br />

student Montana Brown’s desire<br />

to try new things has her on<br />

the path to representing New<br />

Zealand in wheelchair racing.<br />

The talented <strong>15</strong>-year-old paraathlete,<br />

who has cerebral palsy<br />

and spastic diplegia, has recently<br />

fallen in love with the sport and<br />

now dedicates a lot of her spare<br />

time to training.<br />

Already an avid target shooter<br />

and boccia player, it is her wheelchair<br />

racing which is starting to<br />

turn heads.<br />

Montana, who lives in Lincoln,<br />

has been awarded a Gold Heart<br />

Scholarship from children’s charity,<br />

Variety, worth up to the value<br />

of $5000.<br />

Having only taken up the sport<br />

in October, Montana has already<br />

competed at the Halberg Junior<br />

Disability Games, where she<br />

finished third in the 50m race<br />

and second in both the 100m and<br />

200m races.<br />

Montana is currently using a<br />

borrowed wheelchair from ParaFed<br />

Canterbury, which is not<br />

quite right for her size.<br />

FAST TRACK: Cashmere High School’s Montana Brown has<br />

taken to wheelchair racing quickly and has been awarded a<br />

scholarship from Variety to continue her progression.<br />

She will be using this funding<br />

to assist in the purchase of a<br />

purpose-built wheelchair of her<br />

own.<br />

“I really love the sport,” she<br />

says. “When I race, it’s a lot of<br />

effort through my arms and I<br />

often come back with big bruises<br />

but that’s okay because they look<br />

really cool.<br />

Montana credits both ParaFed<br />

Canterbury and Cashmere High<br />

School’s conductive education<br />

programme for allowing her<br />

to have so many sporting<br />

opportunities. Conductive<br />

education is an educational<br />

system developed in Hungary in<br />

the 1940s.<br />

Its objective is to enable<br />

physically disabled and multidisabled<br />

individuals to actively<br />

participate in society by means of<br />

intensive and systematic training<br />

and practice.<br />

Montana said she would<br />

like to represent New Zealand<br />

in the sprint distances of<br />

wheelchair racing at both the<br />

Commonwealth Games and<br />

Paralympics one day soon.<br />

“Having watched the racing<br />

at the Commonwealth Games<br />

(earlier this year), it’s motivated<br />

me to keep training hard and<br />

keep improving.<br />

Bamford School<br />

scarecrow wins pupils<br />

$800 from Oderings<br />

BAMFORD SCHOOL has won<br />

$800 in gardening vouchers<br />

and supplies after entering the<br />

Oderings Garden Centres Snap a<br />

Scarecrow competition.<br />

The school’s scarecrow,<br />

constructed by new entrant<br />

pupils, received 2007 online<br />

votes, just over 13 times the total<br />

roll count of the school, which<br />

sits at <strong>15</strong>0 pupils.<br />

“The garden plays a big role at<br />

Bamford School . . . the students<br />

take part in gardening club<br />

and are allowed to take home<br />

anything they are able to find.”<br />

Teacher Kendra Horne said the<br />

WINNERS:<br />

Pupils from<br />

Oderings Snap<br />

A Scarecrow<br />

competition.<br />

win was amazing for the school<br />

and the gardening supplies will<br />

be well-used.<br />

“The more resources we<br />

have for every child to be<br />

engaged in the garden the<br />

better. A big thank you to our<br />

school and wider community for<br />

all their hard efforts throughout<br />

the competition,” said Miss<br />

Horne.<br />

“As a small school, this activity<br />

was more about the experience<br />

of building the scarecrow and<br />

learning about why they are<br />

needed in the garden than<br />

actually winning.”<br />

Emily Carswell is Kip McGrath Barrington’s star student for April. Emily attends<br />

Thorrington School where she is in year 6. Her tutor Ashleigh Probert said Emily<br />

had worked hard to earn the award and was highly deserving. “She has not<br />

given up trying when it has been hard, or when she’s been tired. She has also<br />

consistently completed her homework and has shown excellent focus in class.<br />

We are all very proud of her wonderful progress.” ​<br />

Organisation<br />

receives<br />

boost from<br />

engineering firm<br />

THE CANTERBURY Down<br />

Syndrome Association has<br />

received a boost of $12,420 from<br />

structural engineering firm<br />

Constructure.<br />

To celebrate its 10th anniversary,<br />

Constructure launched a<br />

Givealittle page in April, inviting<br />

its customers to donate to a good<br />

cause as an ‘unorthodox birthday<br />

present.’<br />

The firm donated $10,000 and<br />

it’s clients donated $2420.<br />

Constructure founder Cory Bedford<br />

said he was excited that his<br />

clients got into the spirit.<br />

“I really want to thank all our<br />

customers for their generosity that<br />

will make a big difference for a<br />

small local charity like the CDSA.”<br />

The CDSA provides support,<br />

education, and advocacy to its<br />

members, their families and wider<br />

community.<br />

Said CDCA chairwoman Diane<br />

Mulholland: “We are just overwhelmed<br />

and grateful that this<br />

amazing gift got even bigger.”<br />

Over the past decade, Constructure<br />

has expanded to 25 staff<br />

members across its Christchurch<br />

and Auckland offices.<br />

The $10,000 gift was not chosen<br />

randomly but symbolises the<br />

target of 10,000 projects the Constructure<br />

team wanted to complete<br />

by the anniversary date.<br />

Burnside-based preschool and nursery,<br />

The Enchanted Garden, was handed over<br />

to new owner-operator Debbie Taylor in<br />

October. She has been in early childhood<br />

management for over seven years and has<br />

three children of her own. Along with the<br />

familiar faces of long-time staff, Debbie’s<br />

vision is to continue the high quality care<br />

and reputation that The Enchanted Garden<br />

has maintained since 1995.<br />

The centre offers children a home away<br />

from home, with a philosophy based on<br />

holistic, individualised care. They engage<br />

higher teacher-to-child ratios to allow better<br />

care and attention. The centre is staffed with a<br />

team of professional educators and nurturers<br />

who are highly trained and passionate about<br />

creating happy experiences.<br />

The setting is warm and home-like in<br />

nature while the playground and indoor<br />

environment have been designed to allow<br />

children to safely explore and learn with<br />

confidence. This is supported by a strong<br />

curriculum designed for active and exciting<br />

play.<br />

With 10 spaces in their nursery, and 23<br />

spaces in their preschool, the centre provides<br />

fluidity of care allows children to form close<br />

bonds while families enjoy peace of mind.<br />

Providing<br />

personalised<br />

learning<br />

experiences<br />

Selwyn House School offers a world-class education<br />

with a talented teaching staff and small class sizes<br />

which are set within a future-focused, nurturing environment.<br />

An extensive range of educational, sporting and<br />

cultural opportunities are offered for girls in Years 1 - 8.<br />

A supportive all-girl learning environment<br />

encourages girls to take risks without<br />

fear of failure and develops their love of<br />

learning. They become confident, compassionate,<br />

articulate and determined young<br />

women who have the values, skills, and<br />

attributes needed to not only achieve their<br />

goals but to make a difference in their<br />

communities. Our teachers ensure girls<br />

are inspired and committed to learning as<br />

they develop their unique way of learning<br />

and achieving. The focus across Years 1 -<br />

8 is on the growth of the developing girl<br />

encompassing intellectual, social, physical,<br />

emotional, and cultural needs.<br />

Selwyn House is committed to providing<br />

a continuum of international education.<br />

The combination of the International<br />

Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme<br />

(PYP) and our future-focused STEAM and<br />

Mechatronics curriculum ensures girls are<br />

equipped to face a continually changing<br />

world with confidence and enthusiasm.<br />

We focus on instilling strong foundations<br />

which can be successfully built upon.<br />

Core learning in reading, writing and<br />

mathematics is a priority. Specialist programmes<br />

in Art, Creative Writing, Leadership,<br />

Mechatronics, Music, Performing<br />

Arts, Physical Education, Science, Spanish<br />

and Swimming play key roles to further<br />

enhancing learning.<br />

Selwyn House provides each girl with a<br />

personalised learning experience. Each<br />

classroom and specialist teacher has the<br />

time to a foster meaningful relationships<br />

with each student. Due to our comprehensive<br />

learning environment, our girls are<br />

highly skilled, stand out among their peers<br />

and are prepared for a successful transition<br />

to secondary school.<br />

Selwyn House’s nurturing environment is<br />

apparent in all aspects of the school. In our<br />

modern and safe, family-oriented Boarding<br />

House, girls are supported by dedicated<br />

staff and tutors. Girls from across<br />

New Zealand and internationally fondly<br />

call the Boarding House, their ‘home away<br />

from home’ and easily form a sisterhood<br />

with others.<br />

We believe in the strength of tradition,<br />

the promise of the future and the power<br />

of education. For more information on<br />

SCHOLARSHIPS & SCHOOL OPEN DAYS<br />

Ultimate campus taking shape<br />

at QEII Park<br />

Construction of the new state-of-the-art campus for<br />

Avonside Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools is progressing<br />

rapidly with opening on track for next year.<br />

Sue and John.<br />

The new campus will feature a Performing Arts Centre<br />

with a 750-seat theatre and a 200-seat theatre, a hockey<br />

turf, four sports fields, three indoor gymnasiums, a café,<br />

and a large library and learning centre.<br />

Both Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume and Shirley<br />

Boys’ High School Headmaster John Laurenson are<br />

excited by the progress.<br />

“There are now more than 100 workers on site – that<br />

will peak to more than 300 in coming months. The steel<br />

framing is up and the concrete slabs are down and we<br />

can see now just how big this campus will be – it’s simply<br />

wonderful,” says John Laurenson.<br />

“You can finally see all that we have been talking about<br />

and dreaming about taking shape. We will be onsite with<br />

our students, staff and community making the most of all<br />

of the fantastic new facilities before we know it.”<br />

The campus is due to open in Term Two of 2019. It will<br />

be the first time in New Zealand’s history that two single<br />

sex schools will be co-located.<br />

John Laurenson says the co-location will enable the<br />

schools to offer students more.<br />

“Because we’re building together, we’ve been able to<br />

build bigger and better facilities.”<br />

Sue Hume says the co-location will also enable better<br />

educational opportunities.<br />

“We’ll collaborate on teaching some senior subjects,<br />

so we can offer students wider choice and there’s also<br />

the opportunity to work together on co-curricular<br />

opportunities – such as productions, sports competitions<br />

and the like.”<br />

Both principals are keen to point out that the colocation<br />

is not a merger.<br />

“We’ll still be Shirley and they’ll still be Avonside. We’ll<br />

work together, but both schools will retain their own<br />

culture, identity, staff and uniform. This is not a co-ed<br />

school,” says John Laurenson.<br />

“Research shows that single sex education benefits<br />

both boys and girls,” says Sue Hume. “Boys perform<br />

better academically and girls participate more. This new<br />

campus, has been designed so that students will still<br />

spend most of their time in a single sex environment.”<br />

Both Sue and John say the campus will be an asset the<br />

east of Christchurch will be proud of.<br />

“We’ll be right alongside the new QE2 Sport and<br />

Recreation Centre, the School of Gymnastics and have a<br />

satellite unit for Ferndale School onsite. It’s going to be a<br />

great place to learn.”<br />

AVONSIDE GIRLS’<br />

HIGH SCHOOL<br />

OPEN EVENING<br />

Thursday 24 <strong>May</strong> <strong>2018</strong> from 5.00pm – 7.00pm<br />

The evening begins in the gymnasium at 5.00pm, with an<br />

address from the Principal Mrs Sue Hume, and student<br />

representatives. A tour of the school follows, with the<br />

opportunity to talk to teachers and students.<br />

We look forward to welcoming all prospective students and<br />

families for 2019.<br />

HEALTH & AWARENESS<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

Headache & Migraine<br />

can be treated<br />

Scm<br />

The crosses are the area of the<br />

muscle spasms (triggerpoints).<br />

The red areas is where the<br />

pain is felt.<br />

Temporalis<br />

muscle<br />

Neck muscle that causes headaches, earaches and facial pain.<br />

Most headaches and migraines are<br />

caused by an accumulation of<br />

factors. Factors like the condition<br />

of your spine, neck, jaw and face muscles,<br />

but also posture, breathing pattern and<br />

your ability to manage stress. Once the<br />

threshold is reached, you will suffer a<br />

headache. Research shows in most cases,<br />

the neck plays a significant role (Dwyer<br />

et al. 1990). Migraine sufferers who react<br />

well to migraine medication have excellent<br />

results when treated for neck dysfunction<br />

(Pavese et al. 1994).<br />

Our physiotherapists have extensive<br />

experience in treating headaches and<br />

can quickly determine what treatment is<br />

needed. This often leads to a significant<br />

decrease in both the intensity and<br />

frequency of your headaches.<br />

As physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk<br />

explains, when our muscles tighten this<br />

can refer pain to many of the areas around<br />

the face and head. Dehydration can be the<br />

catalyst for tightening the neck muscle<br />

(SCM), which causes pain in the ear,<br />

forehead and around the eye and jaw-joint<br />

areas. Tightening of the temporalis muscle<br />

can refer pain to the teeth, which can be<br />

confusing when you visit the dentist to<br />

have it checked and the dentist can’t find a<br />

reason for the recurring pain.<br />

Teeth grinding at night and teeth<br />

clenching during the day are also a major<br />

cause of muscle tightening.<br />

Physiotherapy treatment for these<br />

problems is based on deactivating the<br />

‘trigger points’ through hands-on massage<br />

therapy to relax the muscles, which is the<br />

least invasive and a very effective form<br />

of treatment. Dry needling is another<br />

technique used for muscle relaxation, and<br />

can be used with the client’s consent, Ietje<br />

says.<br />

Immediate relief is achieved by releasing<br />

your tight muscles. At the same time we<br />

work on the cause of the problem. For<br />

example, a “feedback” headband can be<br />

provided to be worn at night to help you<br />

The muscle that causes headaches and toothaches.<br />

learn not to clench your teeth while asleep.<br />

Sometimes we need to work on the neck<br />

part of your spine, where overuse or stress<br />

can cause muscles to tighten, creating pain:’<br />

Teaching self-management of stress can<br />

also be an important aspect of the total<br />

treatment, as well as teaching breathing<br />

techniques, which go hand in hand with<br />

managing stress.<br />

Our qualified physiotherapists specialise<br />

in dealing with chronic pain, such as<br />

headaches, earache, toothache, and facial<br />

and jaw pain. ………………...We can help<br />

FOCUS ON HEALTH<br />

Supporting Your<br />

Bowel & Digestive<br />

Function Helps<br />

Prevent Disease<br />

It is most important to keep the whole<br />

digestive & elimination systems of the<br />

body working efficiently. Otherwise toxins<br />

that have not been eliminated set the stage<br />

for disease. Many diseases have been linked<br />

with micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial<br />

component. Generally these microorganisms<br />

or bacteria can only survive<br />

due to the fact that the environment they<br />

are in is suitable for their survival. Non<br />

eliminated toxins are probably one of the<br />

main causative factors for their survival.<br />

We know that when the digestive system<br />

& bowel function are poor we have many<br />

more health problems. These include<br />

arthritis, digestive problems like reflux &<br />

stomach pain, bladder infections, chronic<br />

skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis &<br />

rashes, poor eyesight, pain & inflammation,<br />

tumors & a weakened immune system just<br />

to name a few.<br />

Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a<br />

highly effective blend of natural herbs to<br />

support the whole digestive system & it is<br />

especially effective at cleansing the lower<br />

bowel & intestinal tract. It is commonly<br />

used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea,<br />

digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds &<br />

influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout, skin<br />

conditions like eczema & psoriasis, urinary<br />

infections, liver dysfunction, Candida,<br />

weakened immune function & for people<br />

who want to keep their health as good as<br />

possible.<br />

The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the<br />

production of digestive fluids & bile for<br />

efficient digestion. This alone may help<br />

prevent many diseases as a properly working<br />

digestive system will itself neutralise many<br />

disease causing organisms before they<br />

have a chance to cause any problems. LBS<br />

II also stimulates peristaltic action of the<br />

colon effectively cleansing the colon of any<br />

accumulated build-ups of waste material. It<br />

also relaxes abdominal cramping & spasms,<br />

enhances liver function, purifies the blood,<br />

neutralizes acidic conditions, helps destroy<br />

intestinal parasites & worms, & fights<br />

infection.<br />

Keeping your digestive system & bowels<br />

functioning efficiently is definitely &<br />

important step in obtaining & maintaining<br />

good long term health.<br />

1 in 2 people<br />

deficient in B12<br />

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults<br />

& as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.<br />

Scientists at Rush University Medical Center found those most<br />

deficient in vitamin B12 to have the smallest brain mass & the lowest<br />

scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration &<br />

brain performance. Another study showed that older people with<br />

higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains &<br />

score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels. Yet<br />

another recent landmark study showed that B12 supplementation<br />

slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage & declining cognitive<br />

function. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health,<br />

regulation of mood & sleep cycles, nerve health & repair, &<br />

prevention of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor<br />

that is known to cause damage & plaque in the blood vessels. It can<br />

also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a<br />

34% decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40+<br />

who supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk<br />

of hearing loss in subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.<br />

The reason so many people lack B12 appears to be our body’s<br />

ability to absorb it declining with age as the digestive system<br />

becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication & other drugs<br />

further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in<br />

the form of Methylcobalamin<br />

sublingual tablets that are<br />

dissolved in the<br />

mouth & thru<br />

bypassing the<br />

digestive tract have<br />

been shown to<br />

effectively raise B12<br />

levels in the body.<br />

key to ensuring optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore important<br />

to get professional advice from heat pump<br />

experts.<br />

The range varies from wall mounted high<br />

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,<br />

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted<br />

central heating systems allowing you to have a<br />

very discreet way of heating your whole home<br />

to a constant temperature throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that<br />

is suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it<br />

is important to select the correct size for your<br />

requirements that will handle the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the location of your heat pump<br />

is also extremely important. The cheapest<br />

installation is a back to back where the outdoor<br />

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor<br />

unit however this is not necessarily always the<br />

best option. It is vital that the indoor unit is<br />

positioned in a place that will not be constantly<br />

blowing on you. Also important, is the location<br />

of the outdoor unit. Most people do not want<br />

their outdoor unit sitting directly in their<br />

outdoor entertaining area or right outside their<br />

bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary<br />

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems<br />

and price, so it depends on your application as<br />

to which will be most suitable. Major brands<br />

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,<br />

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands<br />

backed up by good technical after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to consider when choosing a<br />

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the<br />

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the right advice.<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

Get rid of<br />

dampness<br />

in your house<br />

Now with the colder and wetter weather on<br />

its way, home owners are focusing on ways<br />

to make their homes comfortable, warm and<br />

healthy for their families throughout winter.<br />

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of<br />

our older properties which suffer from poor, or<br />

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,<br />

many people have relocated to homes<br />

that suffer from rising damp which can be<br />

associated with health problems. Independent<br />

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can<br />

rise from the ground and enter a house every<br />

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation<br />

and musty smells. Moulds can produce<br />

various allergic reactions and the<br />

frail, elderly and very young are<br />

especially vulnerable.<br />

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd<br />

is a locally owned and operated<br />

firm. The team understands the<br />

problems caused by rising damp<br />

and are there to help. They will<br />

come to your damp home and<br />

pump a lightweight, flowable<br />

foam concrete under your<br />

timber floored home. Specially<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

adapted for our New Zealand conditions and<br />

applications it provides a layer of protection<br />

against rising moisture. An unexpected<br />

benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam<br />

Concrete have noticed recently, is that many<br />

owners of properties which had underfloor<br />

foam concrete installed, reported that it also<br />

provided protection against liquefaction after<br />

the earthquakes.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Fresh air<br />

in your home<br />

All houses require air exchange in order<br />

to stay fresh and dry. No one likes to live<br />

in a stuffy, smelly, damp home. Indoor air<br />

quality is important for the health of the<br />

occupants. Houses can have many sources of<br />

contaminants, such as bathrooms, kitchens,<br />

pets, smokers, and even furnishings. Opening<br />

the windows can refresh the air, but is not<br />

always an option for security reasons and can<br />

also lead to heat energy being lost to outside.<br />

Although older houses have small gaps<br />

around windows and doors, you want to be<br />

able to control the flow of air. You don’t want<br />

air coming in to the bathroom or kitchen and<br />

pushing the soiled air around the house. It<br />

is better to expel the air out of kitchens and<br />

bathrooms to outside. This will draw air in<br />

from the rest of the house to replace the air that<br />

has been removed.<br />

Modern houses are very airtight and<br />

theoretically require a source of incoming air<br />

to allow kitchen and bathroom extraction to<br />

work optimally. Ventilation systems should be<br />

low air velocity and low air pressure so as not<br />

to cause draughts.<br />

There are two main types of ventilation<br />

system: Positive pressure and Balanced<br />

pressure. Positive pressure systems, such as the<br />

Dry-Matic, bring filtered, warmed attic air into<br />

the house, which then percolates through the<br />

rooms, pushing the damper stale air out.<br />

Balanced pressure systems bring in a<br />

similar amount of air to the amount they<br />

exhaust. Balanced pressure systems with<br />

Heat Exchange, such as the HEX390, use the<br />

heat of the outgoing air to warm the incoming<br />

air from outside. These are the most energy<br />

efficient systems available, as they recover up<br />

to 80% of the energy in the air, rather than<br />

losing it to outside. Heat exchangers work just<br />

as well cooling incoming air when the house is<br />

cooled in summer.<br />

The NZ building code has recommended<br />

air exchange rates for houses. To ascertain<br />

the required airflow for your home, please<br />

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH<br />

(0800 766 684), who will also be able to<br />

recommend a solution if your ventilation<br />

doesn’t yet meet the New Zealand standard.<br />

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS<br />

New premises<br />

for car light<br />

specialists<br />

NEW<br />

LOCATION<br />

95<br />

gasson st<br />

Long-established car light specialists,<br />

Braxton Car Lights, are now shining their<br />

lights from a sparkling new address – just<br />

around the corner from their familiar<br />

Brougham Street site.<br />

Just prior to Christmas, the business<br />

moved from 325 Brougham Street to 95<br />

Gasson St, where they offer a brighter<br />

showroom, easier access for their customers<br />

and plenty of off-street parking.<br />

“We’re all set up in our new premises,”<br />

sales manager Richard Vernimmen says,<br />

“and continuing to provide our customers<br />

with an extensive range of replacement<br />

lights for most Japanese, European and<br />

New Zealand-made vehicles. We can cover<br />

most vehicles on the road, and all our lights<br />

are fully checked and in perfect working<br />

order.”<br />

If they don’t have it in stock, they can<br />

source it from one of the other branches in<br />

the nationwide BE Group, Richard says. BE<br />

is one of New Zealand’s largest importers of<br />

car, truck and commercial parts.<br />

Braxton Car Lights also offers a repair<br />

service for headlights, with their skilled<br />

staff of three having 80 years’ experience<br />

in the automotive trade between them.<br />

They also specialise in light adjuster and<br />

light conversion of American<br />

car lights and their repair<br />

service includes plastic<br />

welding, drying out, and<br />

re-silvering, re-sealing<br />

and lens refurbishment.<br />

Their services can also<br />

be arranged through<br />

your own local garage or<br />

workshop.<br />

So, next time you need<br />

replacement car lights, call<br />

into Braxton Car Lights’ bright new<br />

Celebrating 56 years<br />

on the local music scene<br />

NEVILLE Wilkins & the Viscounts celebrate<br />

56 years on the music scene this weekend<br />

making them one of New Zealand’s longest<br />

established dance bands.<br />

Straits, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Englebert<br />

Humperdink, and Elvis Presley,” said Neville.<br />

“So we play a good mixture of 50's, 60's, 70's<br />

ballads, rock and roll, country and even Irish.”<br />

Today the Viscounts - Neville Wilkins<br />

(trumpet); Christine Williams (vocals); Dave<br />

Petrie (keyboards); Ray Harris (guitar);<br />

Graeme Wallis (bass); John Wilson (drums) -<br />

still perform at private functions and the<br />

occasional public show.<br />

‘Famous for their roasts!’<br />

Christchurch trumpeter, Neville Wilkins<br />

formed the band in 1962 and during its career<br />

The Viscounts has had around 60 members,<br />

with some staying as long as 20 years.<br />

Their first residencies included<br />

Christchurch’s 500 Club in Chancery Lane and<br />

The Town & About in Peterborough St,<br />

followed later by the Bush Inn Courts and<br />

Twiggers.<br />

With a career spanning well over five<br />

decades, the group has adapted its repertoire<br />

with time and today play a wide selection of<br />

material.<br />

“I always aimed for the band to play the<br />

most popular artists, such as Ricky Nelson,<br />

Billy Vaughan, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Gene<br />

Pitney, Eddie Calvert, Neil Diamond, Dire<br />

Neville Wilkins & the Viscounts appear at<br />

the Woolston Club, Hargood St, this Saturday<br />

(3rd September). Don’t miss your opportunity<br />

to ‘cut a rug’ with this highly respected and<br />
