A FREE hot breakfast including

and porridge is being served up

to the Northcote and Redwood

community.

An off-shoot from community

development organisation Te

Ora Hou Otautahi, Neighbourhood

Links, has begun its own

breakfast club and fed about 80

people in its first week.

Located at Northcote School,

the breakfast club is different

to others in that it doesn’t just

operate for the school. It is open

to families and anyone else in

the community who wants to

come along, said organiser and

community development worker

Joss Butriss.

“It’s been fabulous. We

couldn’t have asked for better.

Already after the first week I’ve

got kids asking if I can do it five

days a week,” said Miss Butriss.

Currently the club runs on

Monday and Wednesdays.

Miss Butriss said the club is

more than just feeding people,

“it’s about the connections and

philosophy behind it.”

Board chair

takes a

stand over

funding for

organisation

• By Sophie Cornish

THE FENDALTON-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

should not be funding a project

which targets issues such as

mental health, overcrowded

housing and behavioural

problems.

That’s the stand board chairman

Sam MacDonald took over

$20,000 of funding granted to Te

Ora Hou Otautahi last week.

But Mr MacDonald was the

only board member at the meeting

to vote against the plan.

“I voted against it because it’s

ratepayer money, we have a lot

of priorities in the city and I just

felt that when I talk to my constituents,

it’s more about fixing

our roads and infrastructure with

ratepayers’ money,” he said.

“Don’t get me wrong it’s a noble

cause and what they are doing

is great, but you have to go and

justify it to ratepayers.”

The money will fund Te Ora

Hou’s whanau resiliency project,

which identifies young people

and their families most at risk

for issues such as mental health,

overcrowded housing, poor school

attendance and behavioural

problems, and will work alongside

them for more than 12 months to

develop long-term change.

Bid to further lower speed limit

• By Sophie Cornish

Julie

Greenwood

RELIEF MAY be in sight for

those with concerns about the

speed limit outside Harewood

School.

Last week, the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board approved several speed

limit changes to the Harewood

and Yaldhurst area.

However, it recommended city

council review

the change to the

speed outside

of the school

and consider

lowering it again

from 60km/h to

50km/h. Currently

it is 70km/h.

Harewood

School principal

Julie Greenwood spoke at the

last board meeting, calling for it

to reconsider lowering the speed

to 50km/h, a cause she has been

supporting for many years.

“The community board has

been fantastic at listening to our

concerns as a school, which has

been great.”

“We are delighted that the

speed will be lowered to 60km/h

but we would like them to consider

if it can be 50km/h to make

it consistent with Harewood Rd

. . . this will assist in the safety

of children and parents crossing

the road in the vicinity of the

school,” said Ms Greenwood.

Lower speed limits will aim

to address the changing nature

of post-earthquake, north-west

Christchurch, with its recent and

proposed residential developments.

The changes seek to mitigate

the effects of increased traffic

flows along previously rural

roads and reduce the risk and

severity of accidents to residents

and users of these roads.

City council received 144

public submissions about the

changes, with most supporting

the lowering of speed limits.

The changes will come into

affect in July, following final

approval from city council and

the installing of appropriate

Under the plan, parts of Sawyers

Plans for the former Mitre 10 site

in the Bishopdale Village Mall are

still unclear. Last week Nor’West

News reported businessman Doug

Spence had purchased the site.

Bishopdale Centre Association

chairwoman Amanda Nuttall

said the organisation is looking

forward to seeing the site, which

has sat empty for two years, be redeveloped.

“Hopefully it will help

re-invigorate the area and draw

more people here. Mr Spence has

some concept plans being drawn

up at the moment which I am

sure he will share with us as soon

as he can”. Mr Spence owns the

Bishopdale New World site and is

currently looking to build a retail

complex in Church Bay.

SHIRLEY SITE CLEAN-UP

Remediation work on the former

Shirley Community Centre site

will begin soon. The site at 10

Shirley Rd will be cleared of all

Veterinary practice

EXCITING NEW TECHNOLOGY

AT MCMAsTEr & HEAp VETs

Veterinary science is an ever changing,

progressive and exciting field to try to keep

abreast of. Over the past year Steve and I

have invested in an Ultrasound machine

that is of human quality and we also have

digital radiography, which is amazing. Now

I can zoom in on joints and bones to look

for a lesion. We are also moving very shortly

to a new in house laboratory system which

will allow us to perform many more blood

tests in clinic.

Recently we made the

huge leap to change

our veterinary software

system and integrate

a digital system for

patient monitoring,

both our intensive

care, hospital and

surgical patients,

therefore getting

rid of pen and paper completely. Our old

system had served us well for 15 years but

it was high time to go “cloud based”. Last

week we went “Live” with EzyVet software

and actually its not as difficult as I thought

it would be. I’ve learnt you just need an

open mind as any old dog can learn new

tricks. Its actually been quite fun.

There are loads of benefits with EzyVet, one

of them being better faster communication

with you, our client. We now can easily

text or email ( your preference) your

times. We will progress into sending you

reminders, if you want, for the products

you regularly purchase from us like flea

and worm treatments, vaccinations,

prescription foods, arthritic medications

etc. Once we get going with the system we

will have ipads out at reception for you to

electronically consent to a procedure and

update your details for us. Our database will

be more accurate and it will speed up the

process.

Once you have consented to a procedure,

your pets details and what its in for gets

transferred digitally to the treatment

area and goes up live on one of our TV

monitors. As certain tasks are completed

like blood tests, radiographs, sedations

given, then the TV monitor ticks these tasks

off. Its been quite hard resisting a paper

chart but we have less clutter and mess

and more accurate means of recording

every little detail now.

I’m really proud of how our 20+ staff have

embraced this challenge and tried hard to

learn all the features these new systems

have to offer. Last

Tuesday I had two

knee surgeries in dogs

to do and Jaimee

my nurse managed

the ipad monitoring

and charting so well.

Everything entered

on the Smartflow

monitoring system

sinks immediately to

the EzyVet software system, therefore

freeing up our time considerably.

Our field is so challenging and exciting and

there is always something new to consider

having to improve the level of service we

can offer. Steve and I have got big plans

in the next 12 months to build onto our

existing Vet Practice, therefore offering

more services to our clients and providing

more space to our ever growing database

of clients and their pets. We will keep you

updated when building starts but we are

hoping by the end of this year.

I’d say “WATCH this SPACE……..

Building friendships for over-60s

• By Sophie Cornish

ABOUT 340 over-60s

are benefitting from the

Neighbourhood Trust’s Golden

Connections programme which

focuses on building relationships

and friendships between older

people in the community.

Manager of the Mairehau trust

Ginny Larsen said 280 of the 340

in the programme live alone, so

having a place to come and connect

is very important for them.

The programme runs twice a

week with Monday being for a

walking group and Wednesday

for different activities such as

meals, bus trips, movies, hymn

service, games afternoon and a

foot clinic.

“The meals are always hugely

popular – as they say, for many it

is the only time they eat with others.

We have to cut it off at 75, as

we have around eight to 10 volunteers

working in the kitchen,

set-up and serving and we can’t

fit more than 85 into the space.”

Ms Larsen said the group is

“staunch” opting to turn up to

the walking no matter what the

weather.

“They inspire each other,” she

said.

“We love the way people look

after each other and the valuable

friendships that have grown.

Reserve

planting

now tops

2000 trees

• By Sophie Cornish

THERE ARE now more than

2000 trees planted in Papanui

Bush as part of a restoration

project for Bridgestone Reserve.

The second planting in Papanui

Bush’s restoration took place last

week.

In spite of the cold and rain

about 100 volunteers turned out

to plant 1400 native trees.

They included Papanui-Innes

Community Board members, a

local MP, Papanui Heritage Group

members, the Rotary Clubs of

Riccarton and Papanui, students

from Papanui High School and

members of the public.

Community board member John

Stringer said he saw several fantails

“flitting from new tree to new tree”

while planting took place.

“It was as if to say: ‘Thanks for

these, we approve. Only took you

170 years!’”

The bush once took up 36ha of

land that is now Papanui High

School and Vagues Rd in 1850.

During this time, most trees

were felled over a period of five to

six years.

HEART: The new hall at Christchurch Boy’s High School which won an award at the

2018 Canterbury Architecture Awards. SKILL: The Cathedral Grammar junior school.

New structures earn awards for architecture

SEVERAL COMMERCIAL and

public architecture projects and

innovative buildings for learning

were recognised at the 2018

Canterbury Architecture Awards last

week.

As part of the peer-reviewed New

Zealand Architecture Awards programme

run by the New Zealand Institute

of Architects, the awards announced

34 winners at a ceremony at

the Transitional Cathedral.

Designed by Architectus, the St

Andrew’s College Centennial Chapel

received an award for it’s “exemplary

response to a challenging brief – to

replace a damaged but much-loved

school building,” said the jury convenor

for this year’s awards architect

Melanda Slemint.

“The chapel roof, a series of folded

ridges and valleys, is a powerful

sculptural element reminiscent

of early church buildings yet contemporary

in execution,” said Ms

Slemint.

Continuing with school awards,

Andrew Barrie Lab and Tezuka Architects

picked up an award for their

work on the Cathedral Grammar

junior school.

“To compose a building that is

so ‘scale specific’ to its primary

occupants also requires immense

patience and diligence, coupled with

serious architectural skill.”

The school also received an interior

award, with the jury commenting

on the “sumptuous and warm character”

and noting that “any building

with a playground on the roof must

be a winner,” said Ms Slemint.

A new hall at Christchurch Boys’

High School designed by Jasmax is a

“clever insertion of a contemporary

building within the traditional

school fabric that has given the

school a new heart,” the jury said.

Awards were also given to a

“community-minded” housing development

in Fendalton, Lintrathen

Gardens and earthquake rebuild

Ellis House, both by Sheppard and

Rout Architects.

A heritage award was given to

restoration projects for Glandovey

House by Warren and Mahoney.

REPLACEMENT: The St Andrew’s College Centennial

Chapel received an award for its ‘exemplary response

to a challenging brief.’

talks about

volunteers

making a

difference in

pupils’ education

AT NORTHCOTE School we

are so lucky to have a number of

new community initiatives that

we want to share with you, as

well as some that we’d love you

to be involved in.

On May 21, with the

assistance of Neighbourhood

Links and Te Ora Hou Ōtautahi,

a community breakfast club

was launched in the Northcote

community. This has been in

development for some time and

we were excited with the first

breakfast in the multi-purpose

room at Northcote School.

The numbers attending were

higher than expected, catering

to about 30 people on Monday,

and 50 on Wednesday, which is

evidence that the community

needs a programme like this.

Although it is situated within

the school, this is a community

programme and everyone is

welcome. It is supported and

run by a team of volunteers from

LEARNING: Parent helpers and volunteers from the Salvation

Army help Northcote School pupils in the vegetable garden.

the community, alongside staff

from Neighbourhood Links.

Also this term, we have

started our reading mileage

programme, which is designed

to provide pupils with the

opportunity to read more often.

Currently, we have about 12

community members coming

into our school to read daily for

15min with some of our pupils.

This is already showing great

results with pupils displaying

increased enthusiasm and

commitment to improving their

reading ability.

Again this is something we

could not offer without the

support of the greater Northcote

and Redwood community.

Another initiative we have

running at the school is our

vegetable garden programme.

We have parent helpers, along

with members of the Salvation

Army who come in on Tuesday

afternoons and work with

pupils to prepare a meal, which

includes some of the produce

grown in our own garden.

We are currently looking

for people to help lead this

programme, so if this sounds

like you then please get in

contact with the school.

We have two year 10 students

from Papanui High School

who are running after-school

netball sessions on Thursday

afternoons as part of their

Duke of Edinburgh awards. It

is a great way to see our young

future leaders giving back to the

community.

There are always plenty of

opportunities for us all to

become involved in our local

communities and when we do

so, the benefits for our tamariki/

children can be great.

•The breakfast club

runs on Mondays and

Wednesdays at Northcote

School on Tuckers Rd from

8-8.45am. If you’d like to

volunteer and help prepare

the food, please give us a

call on 352 9371.

Readers respond to an article

about the Papanui-Innes

Community Board asking the

education minister to include

Shirley and Richmond in the

enrolment zone for the new

school at QE II

Craig Orr – Geographically

speaking, it would make sense

to change the zones and utilise

Mairehau High School to service

the majority of that

area and add rooms

if needed. It looks

to be a well underutilised

facility and

is in a sensible place

for the area. Anyone

from say the east

side of Marshland Rd goes to Shirley/

Linwood, and west goes to Mairehau,

maybe it’s not that simple but something

will have to change to find a

balance.

Angela Toomey – Why does

this have to be do hard? Why is

the MoE being so tunnel visioned?

Why can’t they see it’s time to be

innovative? For a community already

ravaged by forces beyond their control

and looking to build hope and

positivity for the youth and families

in Christchurch, the earthquake was

a leveller. Christchurch has been

fractured. The MoE has a prime opportunity

to help bring communities

back to health, mental and physical,

in their attitude to these new schools.

Don’t lose that opportunity MoE.

Medbury pupils move

tonnes of rice for charity

MEDBURY SCHOOL pupils

have gained an insight to what

life is like for refugees after they

moved 118,082kg of rice and

water on Friday.

The whole school event

‘Strength for Sudan’ had a goal

of moving 40,000kg over 40m to

raise funds for World Vision’s 40-

Hour Famine.

School spokeswoman

Rachelle Mathews said this

goal got “totally

obliterated” when

the boys moved

close to triple that

amount.

The pupils were

sponsored per

kilogram moved,

Amos

Pilgrim

total kilograms

moved, or by a

lump sum amount.

The rice and water used was

purchased by the school and will

be donated to the Salvation Army

and Christchurch City Mission.

A similar event, ‘Stroll for

Syria’ took place last year, which

saw the school raise almost

$23,000, the second highest

amount raised by a group in the

South Island.

The event on Friday was

run by year 8 house leaders,

head of community service

Amos Pilgrim, and student

head of community service

LIFT: Year 8 Medbury School pupil Jack McKenzie carries rice

on his head as part of the school’s World Vision challenge.

Sam Moorhead. Mr Pilgrim

said community service events

like this were fast becoming a

highlight of the school’s calendar.

“Money raised from this event

will be used for child-friendly

spaces such as playgrounds and

classrooms. Our boys will get to

make a meaningful difference

in the lives of other children

their age. We were able to come

together as a school community

and continue to develop a culture

of having fun together while

helping those less fortunate than

ourselves,” he said.

The money raised in this year’s

40-hour famine will go towards

supporting the refugee children

of south Sudan and their families

with food, clean water, toilets,

education, emergency response

items, a place to live and a place

to play in child-friendly spaces.

AN “EMOTIONAL insight”

into the United States in the

1950s was given to St Margaret’s

College history students by a

PAPANUI TIGERS’ pitcher

Brittany Terrey’s talents are

taking her all over the world.

The 18-year-old will represent

New Zealand at the under-19

level at the Canada Cup in July

before taking up a two-year

scholarship at Indian Hills Community

College in Iowa.

Terrey has played for the Tigers

since she first played teeball as a

young child.

Her mother, father and grandfather

were all pitchers, and once

she was a teenager, Terrey added

to that legacy.

“It’s definitely an art learning

how to pitch and control your

command on the mound,” she

said.

The Junior White Sox member

has been clocked at 102km/h for

her fast ball while her curve ball

is about 60km/h.

Terrey said she learnt a lot

from her trip to Florida for the

world championships with the

junior White Sox team last year

but admitted she found the step

up challenging.

“Compared to club softball

here, the margins were a lot less

and the skill of some of some of

the other international players

made me step up my performance,”

she said.

Terrey said she wants to win a

“I’m happy to get into any

games and contribute to the

team, but I want to be a starter.”

She said she hoped her past

experience with national agegroup

squads would hold her in

good stead.

The event will run from July 13

to 23 in Surrey, British Columbia,

and provides a platform for

players to compete on the international

stage in advance of next

Hidden treasures, right

in the centre of Riccarton

Natural Attraction Antiques and

Treasure started life as a hair salon

(Natural Attraction Hair Stylists)

over 30 years ago and has gradually

transitioned over to an antique shop

with four registered dealers - Sue, Geoff,

Steve and Uma – providing expertise

and unique things. Part of its ongoing

charm is that two of the dealers are still

also hairdressers so some days you will

find clients having their hair done in the

salon section of the shop while others

are browsing the eclectic displays of

jewellery, curios, fabrics and porcelain.

They cover a wide range of traditional

antiques, decorative items and plenty

of interesting collectables making it the

perfect place if you want a special gift

for any occasion or have been searching

for that piece to complete a collection.

Prices are reasonable and range from

$5-$500 with new stock brought in

every week. If they don’t have what you

are looking for, they are always happy

to try and source specific pieces, taking

their treasure-hunt far and wide. You

can also try their main shop, The Ferry

Antique Centre at 282 Ferry Road,

Waltham.

Located at the Windmill Centre, 184

Clarence Street, there is easy parking at

the door and the shop is near to the wellknown

“Ed Hopper” coffee shop - they

recommend that customers check out

the coffees and legendary date scones.

Sprinter overcomes fear

to win scholarship in US

• By Jacob Page

FORMER ST Margaret’s sprinter

Jordyn Blake didn’t like the

400m distance when she first

started. Now it’s got her a United

States college scholarship.

The 18-year-old will head to

Loyola University Chicago and

compete in its NCAA division

one programme in August after

impressing in her first season

back from injury.

She said she can see the funny

side of her once least favourite

distance now providing her with

SPEEDSTER: Jordyn Blake

a great career opportunity.

“I came to the sport quite late

when I was 12,” she said. “I was

definitely a sprinter from the

start but I refused to run the

400m for the first couple of years.

“It’s ironic because it’s become

my best event as I’ve got older

and I was joking with dad that

it’s probably the distance that’s

got me the scholarship,” she said.

The former South Island

200m age-group champion

finished fourth in her heat at the

Australian championships in

march.

Blake has taken 2sec off her

personal best time in the 400m

after returning from injury.

“In January of 2016, I had a

sore foot and I was getting physio

on it every week and was being

told it would come right so I kept

competing and playing hockey

on it as well,” she said.

“By November, I had it x-rayed

and it was discovered I had two

NOR’WEST NEWS

bones in my foot that were joined

together from birth.

“It’s very common but most

people never discover it, but

because I’d been competing on it

for so long, I had a fracture.”

During her six-month

recovery, Blake said she was able

to work on her technique with

coach Jill Morrison, which has

seen her run personal bests over

all sprint distances in the last

season.

Blake said she gets nervous at

the start of the 400m but believed

it was all part of the love-hate

relationship she has with it.

“There’s nothing in the tank

by the end of it, and I always

like to get a fast start to let my

competitors hear me coming up

on them,” she said. Blake, who

will study business marketing

in Chicago, said she was looking

forward to being able to compete

12 months of the year, which will

include an indoor season.

Heale gets national hockey call-up

• By Jacob Page

ST ALBANS’ Llewellyn Heale

has turned the skills he learnt

on a concrete tennis court with

wooden sticks and a tennis ball

into a New Zealand under-21

hockey call-up.

It is the first time Heale has

been part of a national squad,

with 30 players selected for a

camp in Hawkes Bay from July

16-20.

That squad will be cut to a

travelling squad for the Sultan

of Johor Cup in Malaysia in October

before a test series against

Australia in December.

Heale, a midfielder, has captained

teams throughout the agegrades

and said he will relish the

chance to be part of a national

team environment.

“It’s a really exciting opportunity

to learn loads and I hope to

make the most of it,” he said.

The 19-year-old has come

through the Canterbury agegroup

system, playing Hatch Cup

twice, under-15s, regionals and

under-21s.

The former Christ’s College

captain moved to the Hornby

club this season, eager to take on

more responsibility.

“Hornby gave me the best

chance to be a leader and have

the greatest impact on team success,”

he said.

Heale described himself as a

pass-oriented player who likes to

play at pace with vision up the

field.

Heale is one of seven Canterbury

players in the squad with

Louis Beckert, Lawrence Darling,

Moss Jackson, Declan Keaney,

Sam Lane, Harry Lawson and

Gus Wakeling also part of the

camp.

The squad was selected following

the national under-21 tournament

in May where selectors

put together the 2018 national

programme with the main focus

being the transtasman series at

the end of the year.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Protect your face

during winter weather

The wind is howling outside, and your

face is taking the brunt of the winter

weather. Cold, chapped, dehydrated skin

is depleting your face of its moisture and

youthful glow.

Plus, with the high levels of chlorination

in the city water, skin damage has taken

place even though the levels

of chlorine are being lowered.

Too little, too late as it doesn’t

matter what age a person is,

the short-term effect on the

body’s skin has been harmful

especially on the face which can

tremendously benefit from the

ADURO LED Light Therapy

machine.

NASA uses LED light therapy

to heal wounds in space and on

earth, imagine what it can do

for your skin.

Acne a concern? As it thrives

in harsh environments like dry

weather or hormonal imbalance

and can be very painful and

uncomfortable, plus acne leaves

a person’s skin looking worn,

leather looking and scarred.

Charmaine and her team to

the rescue. With more than two decades

of experience behind them, the clinic

offers a variety of services including Teeth

Whitening, Anti-Acne, Anti-Aging, Age

Spots, Eczema, Psoriasis, Uneven Skin

Tone, Rejuvenation treatments and so

much more.

BEFORE

AFTER

Amazing results – before and after photos

supplied by a happy client, who has been

battling acne all her life

Their technical LED Light Therapy facial

machine is having astounding results by

infusing nourishment back into the skin

pores with the natural but active Mismo

skincare range.

For acne, the LED machine helps with

anti-bacterial treatments, which makes

puss pools smaller and smaller

over time, so the acne won’t be as

visible on the face. Then as soon

as the acne has started lessening,

switch to the Acne Anti-Scarring

treatment program.

The LED machine also triggers

the regrowth of collagen which

smooths out wrinkles and lessens

facial line severity, Age Spots &

Scars

In addition to the LED laser

machine, the clinic is expanding

its services and relocating to a

new facility in mid-June.

“The expansion and new

location is exciting. Our team

looks forward to providing these

new services to our customers

to enhance their lifestyle,” owner

Charmaine smiles.

“We appreciate our customer

loyalty and for the opportunity to serve

them as we started with the Sparklewhite

teeth whitening system, which we still

offer, and then expanded into the LED

Light Therapy and facial treatments and

now have expanded our beauty services,

products, and treatments at our new

location.”

Don’t neglect your skin or body this

winter, plus its always nice to have a

pearly white smile. Check out their
