Pupils show true grit

ST ANNE’S Catholic School

produced an unconventional

cross-country event, using

an obstacle course which

involved ducking, diving and

getting muddy.

The Grit Challenge was

the idea of a parent who

works for a scaffolding

company and involved a

technical run including two

crossings, jumping a fence,

tunnels, poles, large barrels

and several mud-based

obstacles.

The pupils climbed up a

four-level scaffolding feature

and jumped off into matting.

Principal Dallas Wichman

said the challenge was put together

to promote the school’s

attitude of grit.

“To persist when things get

difficult and give things a go

which we know is a big determiner

of success in life.”

“The event was amazing

and brings so many

families rather than the

traditional ‘running around

the park’-style cross-country

which we know is dead

boring.”

He said the pupils loved the

course.

“They loved getting really

high on the scaffolding obstacle

and dropping off onto our

high jump mat.”

bus cuts

rethink

• By Julia Evans

PUBLIC OUTCRY has caused a

rethink over plans to cut bus routes

around the city.

But the 535 Eastgate to Lyttelton

and Rapaki still remains on the

chopping block.

Environment Canterbury staff

prepared an “alternative option” to

the proposal in its draft Long Term

Plan that would axe the six lowest

performing bus routes following

“overwhelming” public opposition,

a spokeswoman said.

Those routes included the 535

and the 145 Westmorland to

Eastgate.

The solution is a modification

of the six routes proposed to be

disestablished – with frequency

changes, the combining of two

routes, extension and re-routing of

others.

But as part of the proposal,

there would not be a service

travelling down Linwood Ave,

through Ferrymead and Mt

Pleasant.

Bromley’s stinky sites investigated

• By Bridget Rutherford

MORE THAN 60 sites in

Bromley have been investigated

for potentially causing a stink

– but none were warranted bad

enough for action.

Environment Canterbury and

the city council have carried out

an odour investigation project

in the suburb, which currently

gets the most

complaints in

Christchurch.

The project’s

findings are

being analysed

and will be used

Ross Trotter

to help further

investigations

as odour complaints

continued.

City council solid waste manager

Ross Trotter said it

was created to help provide a

register of the industrial sites

in Bromley to assess “potential

odour risk”.

Of the 270 sites surveyed, 60

were noted as being activities

or industries that could create

odour. Seventeen of those had

already been noted as being “at

risk.”

“During the survey undertaken,

three sites’ activities were

noted for further investigation to

Environment Canterbury,” Mr

Trotter said.

“These activities were reviewed

by a senior resource management

officer and no pollution

event was raised, as he was

confident there was no further

concern.”

Bromley has long had an

odour problem.

The city council-owned organics

processing plant Living Earth

on Metro Place, which deals

with the contents of green bins,

has been the source of most of

the complaints.

In 2016, a putrid stench

wafted over the suburb plaguing

residents and forcing Bromley

School to close for two days,

though the source was never

determined.

Christchurch West Melton

Banks Peninsula zone manager

Steve Firth said the investigation

meant they could determine

the “character” of the different

odours and how to deal with

them in the future.

Since January 1, Bromley has

had the highest number of odour

complaints in the city.

ECan stats show there had

SMELLY: Bromley

with many of

complaints having

Living Earth plant. ​

been about 108 reports of odour,

and 58 odour events.

An odour event is when complaints

are received for the same

location during any 24-hour

period.

Fifty-one of the odour events

were from Metro Place, where

Living Earth is, three came from

Senior Place, two from Tanya St,

and one each from Wickham St

and Francella Place.

Mr Firth said of the 16 substantiated

odour events, many

were not deemed offensive, while

the source was unable to be

found at others.

OPAWA LIBRARY DESIGN

The Ōpāwa Library rebuild

working group has meet to develop

the design brief for the library’s

construction. The working group

is set to agree on the city council’s

final design brief, which will be

included in the request design and

build contracts. The earthquakedamaged

building at 151 Opawa

Rd has been closed since 2011. The

library is operating out of interim

premises in the nearby Opawa

Children’s Library building.

WALTHAM PARK SAFETY

City council staff have found

safety concerns at Waltham Park

need to be identified by a crime

prevention through environmental

design report, after a request

from the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board. The

report would suggest actions to

resolve the issues. To make a full

assessment of the concerns, a day

and night-time site visit would be

necessary.

“We had to deal with trenching

Scarborough Dippers not afraid of the cold

• By Sarla Donovan

THE STARS are still visible

above Pegasus Bay when Kerry

Stepping stone in Quarryman’s Trail

THE FIRST stage of a cycle

route that will eventually

connect Halswell and the central

city is nearing completion with

the last few intersections and

crossings opening soon.

Construction work started

on the Quarryman Trail cycleway

last October. The first

4.6km stage of the route, from

Moorhouse Ave to Victors Rd,

is expected to be finished by

the end of June. In the next few

weeks, traffic signals will be

turned on at two new intersections

and two new controlled

crossings for cyclists and pedestrians.

A pedestrian and cyclist crossing

from Rydal St to Sparks Rd

near Hoon Hay School became

operational last week. Signals at

the Lyttelton St and Sparks Rd

intersection will be open from

May 28 and traffic lights will go

on at Sparks Rd and Hoon Hay

Rd from June 5.

Another pedestrian and cyclist

crossing has been built at the

intersection of Barrington St

and Strauss St and this will open

in June, once the new shared

path connecting Roker St and

Barrington St is finished.

The contractors, Isaac Construction

Ltd, have completed

the intersection upgrades using

Toy Library is taking part in a

week.

Toy Library Awareness week

runs until Sunday.

There are nearly 200 local toy

libraries across New Zealand

supporting families and children

by providing access to a wide

range of toys, games, and

puzzles for hire.

For many families, hiring

toys gives their children access

to items that are not easily

affordable to buy, and allows

children to come to a library

and explore all the different toys

relatively new technique where

the asphalt is a thicker layer

than usual and allowed faster

construction. It is also stronger

and more long-lasting, reducing

future maintenance, the city

council said.

Contractor Fulton Hogan

has worked on the section of

the Quarryman’s Trail between

Moorhouse Ave and Roker

St which is already open, and

includes two new and three

upgraded intersections.

The final stage of the cycleway,

from Victors Rd to Te Hapua in

on offer. Christchurch South

Toy Library recently relocated

from Spreydon School to a new,

temporary home at Addington

Raceway.

Open two mornings a week –

Friday and Saturday – there is

a large area with many toys for

members to peruse.

Members say they like the

new space and the way the toys

are displayed. Children can

explore the toys and try them

out in a safe and welcoming

environment.

It is proven that play is an

essential component of child

development and many schools

Halswell, will be constructed at

a later date subject to funding

availability.

The city council’s planning

and delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis, says the new intersections

will benefit motorists

as well as improving safety for

pedestrians and cyclists.

“They will help ease congestion,

particularly at peak times

at the busy intersections of

Lyttelton St and Sparks Rd and

at Hoon Hay Rd and Sparks Rd

which were previously roundabouts

and now have signals. The

are incorporating play as a

tool to support learning in the

classroom.

The library has dress up

and role playing toys such as

doctor’s kits, play kitchens and

cash registers, all of which are

considered good for the brain.

Studies say that the act of

staying in character strengthens

kids’ discipline and impulsecontrol,

and promotes the social

skills they’ll need as adults.

Hiring from a toy library is

also a great way to care for the

environment.

Outcry forces

ECan bus

route rethink

•From page 1

The Rapaki section of the route

will be serviced three times in the

morning and three times in the

evening by an extended version of

the 28 Lyttelton bus.

During a deliberation meeting

on Wednesday, councillor Cynthia

Roberts said she wanted staff to

re-look at dropping the 535.

“I really would like staff to have

a look again at the opportunity

for the 535 that went through Ferrymead.

. .There is quite a substantial

group of people who are

interested in this route,” she said.

Councillors have asked for staff

to further consider the best solution

for the 535.

The 145 route from Westmorland

to Barrington Mall will be retained

and extended into the CBD.

The service will have a half-hourly

frequency during peak times and

less frequent services off-peak.

The section of the 145 between St

Martins and Eastgate will still be

discontinued.

However, ECan public transport

senior manager Stewart Gibbon

said a school service is being considered

for Cashmere High school

students who use the 145.

ECan announced in February it

was considering cutting the routes

to plug a $4 million funding shortfall.

The news prompted outrage.

The plan would be funded by

a 2.5 per cent increase in fares

annually for the next three years,

starting in July.”

There were 781 submissions on

the draft LTP, with the majority of

those on public transport options.

Encouraging men to get healthy

• By Anan Zaki

THE LENS will be focused on

Christchurch men next month,

as Men’s Health Month kicks

off.

Sport Canterbury have teamed

up with generous local activity

providers to create a month of

free activities for over-60s to

celebrate the month.

“Men’s Health Month is a

chance for men across New

Zealand to start talking more

about their health,” Sport

Canterbury chief executive

Julyan Falloon said.

“What we’re trying to do is

raise that awareness and translate

that awareness into behaviour

change,” he said.

Sport Canterbury’s Community

Groups Strength and Balance

project leader Rebecca Logan said

men have usually been shy to join

group activities.

“Often guys think group

exercises are for women, but

these classes have benefits for

everyone.”

Miss Logan encouraged men

to make the most of the month of

activities.

“Come and give it a go

and if you enjoy it, buddy up

with another participant to

become a regular class attendee.

Group exercise offers many

benefits to men, including

improving your strength and

balance, which will enable you

live stronger for longer and keep

your independence.”

National schools team call-up for Zoe

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

ZOE MCMEEKEN is making the

right impression in her Halswell

14 premier boys football team,

with both national selectors and

the Mainland Pride taking notice.

Zoe has been named in the

under-15 secondary schools team

to travel to Sydney from July 8-14.

The team will play three games

against New South Wales age

group teams.

She is also part of the Mainland

Pride wider-training squad.

The 14-year-old winger has

been outflanking the boys for the

past three years and said playing

against them had only positive

effects on her game.

“I really enjoy it because they’re

a lot more physical when they go

in to challenge you and I think it

forces me to match it and protect

the ball more,” she said.

The Lincoln High School student

first started playing at age five

in a Rolleston ‘first kicks’ event.

A talented runner and crosscountry

athlete, it wasn’t until year

9 when football became her focus.

“I did enjoy running and crosscountry

and it’s helped me in my

position in football, but I enjoyed

the team aspect of football more

than being an individual in running,”

she said.

Zoe said she has aspirations to

become a Football Fern in the

future but she wanted to make the

most of every opportunity given

to her,

She said training alongside

players she looks up to and who

are twice her age has been a great

experience.

“I’m realistic that I don’t expect

to make the Pride squad this year

since I’m so young but I know the

trainings are making me a better

player,” she said.

As for the boys, they know what

to expect “I’ve been playing for

Halswell long enough that I think

they are used to me by now,” she

said.

IMPACT: Zoe McMeeken (right) looks to have a bright future in the sport after making the New

Zealand under-15 football team and the Mainland Pride wider-training squad.

Cashmere Club to host

Addington gym boxer’s

Golden Gloves’ challenge

POWER PUNCH: Sophie Mullally, with assistant coach Matt

Neale, is eager to make her presence felt at the South Island

Golden Gloves on Saturday.

• By Jacob Page

A SHOULDER injury three

years ago got Addington boxer

Sophie Mullally fixated on the

sport

Sophie has been training with

former national coach Phil Shatford

at Addington’s Riverside

Boxing Gym, and on Saturday

she is set to compete at the South

Island Golden Gloves at the

Cashmere Club.

Sophie said she has always

enjoyed physical sports so boxing

was a natural fit.

“I had a shoulder injury from a

game of rugby and (my dad) said

I should come to the gym and do

some boxing to try to rehab it,”

the former rugby flanker said.

“The shoulder got better the

more I trained with Phil and

then one day he asked if I wanted

to have an actual fight and I

thought I’d give it a go,” she said.

Sophie now has a six win, one

loss record in the under-54kg

class and has given up rugby.

“Boxing is my focus now and

I play a bit of touch rugby for

speed and fitness,” she said.

She said accepting you are

going to be hit in the face from

time-to-time was all part of the

sport.

“When it first happens, you

want to punch them back but, of

course, there’s the technique and

strategy you need to think about

during a round.”

The Templeton resident said

one of the biggest challenges was

finding girls in her weight-class

and age.

“I’m hopeful of a bout at South

Islands, even if I have to box

someone older or in a different

weight class – it’s all experience,”

she said.

Sophie’s aim is to win a national

title at the New Zealand

Golden Gloves event on October

3 at the Hornby Working Men’s

Club.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Linwood Medical

Centre offering

new Sick Kids Clinic

With winter around the corner, cold

and flu season is now upon us. As a result,

general practices tend to be busier and

it can often be more difficult to get an

appointment.

Linwood Medical Centre is trying to

change that.

Beginning 5 June, the medical centre

will be providing a Sick Kids Clinic to

streamline visits for children with acute

health needs. At the end of each morning

and afternoon, appointments will be

available for children under 14. These

appointments will be with a nurse who

will be able to provide letters for schools

and advice to parents to help get their

child well.

General Practitioners (GPs) will be

available to see the child if the nurse

has additional concerns or believes a

prescription is needed.

Parents will need to call the medical

centre to schedule an appointment for

their child. Enrolled patients will have

priority and the visits will be free as

always to children under 13. If a nonenrolled

child needs to be seen, the cost

will be just $20.

The clinics will streamline appointments

for sick kids and provide the best service

possible for as many children as need to

be seen.

Linwood Medical Centre is located

upstairs in Eastgate Shopping Centre next

to The Loft and the Linwood Library. The

Centre provides extended hours general

practice, with it’s own social worker, and

specialised nurse services like B4 School

Checks, diabetes education, and smear

clinics. Linwood Dispensary, Physio

South and Bubs4u Midwifery Care Nurse

Maude district nursing, and CDHB Older

Persons health are also located inside the

Centre.

Next door, The Loft

www.theloftchristchurch.org.nz provides

numerous social services.

For additional information on

Linwood Medical Centre, visit

an appointment 03 389 2550.

PSYCHOLOGICAL

THRILLER - ‘A PICASSO’

FOLLOWING on from past productions ‘Turn of

the Screw’ and ‘e Woman in Black’, locally

based independent theatre group, NO Productions

eatre Collective presents its latest offering, A

Picasso.

Photo credit: euns Verwoerd

Written by Jeffrey Hatcher, A Picasso is a fastpaced

psychological thriller set in an interrogation

room in Nazi-occuppied Paris.

Directed by Michael Adams (‘Turn of the

Screw’), this intense piece about art, sex, politics

and truth is full of unexpected twists and

surprises.

jo.fuller@starmedia.kiwi

e story line follows a cat-andmouse

game between the great artist

and a captivating female cultural attaché

from Berlin.

“Which of these three paintings are

genuine, Señor?”…

When Miss Fischer (played by

Nataliya Oryshchuk) reveals that the

genuine Picasso pieces are destined not

for an exhibition but a burning of

degenerate art, the artist (played by

David Allen) begins a desperate

negotiation with his Nazi opponent,

who turns out to be his secret admirer.

‘A Picasso’ takes place at the

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetū in the Philip Carter Family

Auditorium on Friday June 8 at 7.30pm

and Saturday June 9 at 2.30pm and

7pm. Tickets $27 (concessions $22).
