Unwell teens get $10k boost from Papanui High

RONALD McDonald House’s

teenage room has received a

$10,000 boost from Papanui

High School.

The room is for children aged

10 and over and currently has

an Xbox, foosball table, space

invader machines, couches and

bean bags.

Ronald McDonald House

South Island director of house

operations Zucchi Leonard said

the organisation was thrilled to

have the school as a sponsor.

“We want the students to take

ownership of the room and

redesign it. At the moment, it is

a teenagers room designed by

adults.”

The room allows the teenagers

to have their own space, away

from their parents and away

from the younger children.

Deputy principal Tim Kirby

said the money was raised in

three ways. Year 9 and 10 students

participated in a work day

afternoon, 23 students from the

special learning needs department

ran a car wash for staff

and the whole school raised

money through a number of

mufti-days. “The school has now

committed to being an annual

sponsor of the room beginning

this year, which is an exciting

and an extremely worthwhile

cause,” said Mr Kirby.

The students will now think

about the room’s layout.

RESULTS FROM public

submissions on changes to

Cranford St and surrounding

areas show residents may

be divided on how they

would like traffic managed in

the area.

More than 400 submissions

were received on proposed

options for dealing with the

increased traffic to the Cranford

St area, once the Christchurch

Northern Corridor opens in

2020.

Fifty-one per cent of people

would support Madras and

Barbadoes Sts being split into

three sections.

About two-thirds of

submissions support the options

of clearways on Cranford St

between Innes Rd and Berwick

St.

A similar amount support

upgrading the intersections

at Forfar and Warrington Sts

and Barbadoes and Warrington

Sts.

Last month, a 500-signature

petition was presented to the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board about the changes.

Sam Richards.

Could it be Qatar in four years?

The Papanui High School student has

made the wider training squad for the

New Zealand under-17 team to prepare to

qualify for the under-17 World Cup in Peru in October (page 13).

He’s one of the province’s most promising young players.

Making the World Cup in Peru would be a huge step forward for

the 15-year-old.

He’s mixing it with much older players in the Coastal Spirit

premier men’s reserves team. Toughness I suspect won’t be a

problem.

The under-17 World Cup is one of the world’s most prestigious

youth sporting events.

The All Whites will need young talent like Richards to get to

Qatar.

Wet winter causes delays

• By Sophie Cornish

THE ST Albans Park upgrade

has gone over budget and a wet

winter is likely to see it delayed

further.

The cost of the project has

increased by $160,000 to $2.1

million.

The upgrade includes installing

a drainage system, replacing

the existing turf with sand-based

turf and rebuilding the sports

pavilion.

City council manager community

parks Al Hardy said the

increase was caused by ground

conditions issues, when installing

the main drainage lines.

The ground conditions were

significantly worse than what

had been predicted after initial

ground tests at the time the site

was designed and specified.

“A gravel raft was required under

the main line pipes to meet

the required standards and sign

off as required in the contract,”

he said.

This required additional excavation

and supply of the gravel to

create the raft and had a follow

on effect of additional material

(1200 tonne) to be removed from

the site. Mr Hardy also said wet

weather has caused the completion

date to be pushed out to

December or January 2019.

Originally, city council predicted

the pavilion would be

completed in August and the

grounds in September, at the

latest.

Papanui-Innes Community

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said not much can be done

when the issues are to do with

the weather. However, Ms

Jones believes the pavilion and

toilet block will be complete well

ahead of the grounds.

“We are considering having

an opening event, if there is a

big gap between the completion

of the pavilion and the grounds

being ready,” she said.

Additional funding for the

project was included in the Long

Term Plan, which was adopted

by city council last week.

The new pavilion will have

two public toilets, two changing

rooms with toilets and showers,

million.

a referee’s room, two storage

rooms and attic space where

sports clubs can store gear during

the off-season. Two artificial

cricket wickets will also be

installed.

The upgrade came as a result

of ongoing frustration from St

Albans residents, who said the

park and playground have been

a disaster of smelly, brown water

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

Papanui-

Community

Board

member

John Stringer

writes about

his views on

community

board funding

RECENTLY THERE was

controversy (Nor’West News,

June 12 and 19) over the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board’s decision

whether to fund a prominent

Papanui-based trust project

which delivers unique social

assistance in north-west

Christchurch.

My friend and colleague,

Sam MacDonald, chairman of

the community board, publicly

argued “(social investment)

should be a responsibility of

central government not local

government” and asked for

comment.

My view as a community

board member in the ward next

door, where this well-known

trust resides and largely delivers

its services, is that I disagree with

him.

I entirely support Mr MacDonald

that city council boards must

DEBATE: John Stringer

believes ratepayer money

organisations as well as roads

and infrastructure.

be more focused on ratepayers

and pressure on rates.

However, community boards

have a role, too, alongside central

government, in addressing mental

health, special learning, elder

support initiatives and families

in crisis, as much as rubbish,

reticulation and roading.

Boards under-deliver on a

“community mandate” if it only

considers roads. In our own ward

of Papanui-Innes, there is an

important church-based neighbourhood

trust project addressing

stress and anxiety in children

following the earthquakes.

Similarly, we fund youth

sports trips abroad for important

events or youth training, as well

as many elderly engagement

programmes, and we build

disability access ways. This

is social investment in our

community.

The city council does need to

more narrowly prioritise. We

do need a ‘razor gang’ on the

NOR’WEST NEWS

Local

News

Now

‘Social investment’ part of boards’ job

council to critique large amounts

of questionable emphasis and to

re-prioritise rates

The Long Term Plan has

challenged us all on that. I agree

with Mr MacDonald 100 per

cent that our focus must be on

ratepayers and their ‘bang-forbuck.’

More than 15 per cent

rate increases over the next three

years is a runaway horse and a

cop-out of collective governance

this term.

But I disagree with Mr

MacDonald that community

boards should defer all

“social investment” to

central government. We are

best placed to discern what

social investment is needed

locally. It is one reason for

the representation changes made

last term to create more wards to

better apply local spending.

Communities are more

than asphalt, rubbish bags

and reticulation. Boards

need to support people, the

arts, the elderly, the young

and families. We do this

with facilities, programmes,

information, ideas, trees, gardens

and libraries – which is all

vital social investment – while

we wrestle with northern arterial

motorways, chlorination and

potholes.

Call for action as reserve

becomes ‘a swamp’

• By Sophie Conrish

David

A ST Albans resident is calling

for urgent drainage work at

Rutland Reserve, saying it

currently looks like a “bloody

disaster.”

David Brown first contacted

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board about the reserve in February.

However, little has been

done to address

its flooding issue

since.

“The high water

level is flooding

onto the adjoining

reserve land, causing

a large area to

become a swamp,”

he said.

Brown

Mr Brown was told by the

community board in February

it would ensure city council staff

meet or get in touch with him

about the issue.

“To the best of my knowledge,

no such invitation has been

issued to me and I suspect the

drainage personnel are none the

wiser about the condition of the

reserve,” he said in a recent letter

to the community board.

Mr Brown, who has lived in

SWAMP: A St Albans resident wants action taken to stop the

flooding at Rutland Reserve.

Rutland St for 14 years, believes

the water level is high enough in

some places that someone could

drown if they fell in.

He said the resolution is

simple. “Clean the existing drain

that council staff and I dug out

by hand (two years ago), lower

the water level and restore the

reserve so that everyone can use

it.”

The community board requested

an update on the work

being done or planned for the

reserve. It hoped to get an urgent

response to Mr Brown.

“It needs to be returned to its

former glory as a reserve where

people can fly kites, kick a ball

around, play cricket and do what

they want to do on it as they

once did,” said Mr Brown.

“At the moment the only

people that are enjoying it is the

pukekos and ducks.”

City council manager community

parks Al Hardy said it

was aware of the flooding issue

in the reserve.

He said it will continue to

carry out riparian planting to

moderate the water flow.

it would be looked

into, he is still

for vehicles is a serious hazard to

pedestrians and cyclists who use

the pathway,” said Mr Britten.

“Especially at night, given this

is when a car is more likely to be

in there doing skids, and noting

that the park is unlit.”

Mr Britten contacted the city

council about the issue again

in September and was told the

reserve had been left accessible

to vehicles so work could be

completed.

However, a further request was

logged to see if this was still the

case and whether it was possible

for fences to be reinstated and the

grass repaired.

Last week, city council manager

community parks Al Hardy

said the reserve is not accessible

to vehicles.

“Fences run along the

northern, eastern and southern

boundaries. Shrub borders also

prohibit vehicle access.”

However, Mr Britten said this

is incorrect and provided photos

to Nor’West News showing an

unsecured entrance.

“This entrance has two posts

that would typically be raised to

form a vehicle barrier, but they’ve

been in the pictured ‘down’ position

since some time last year,”

he said.

A similar entrance at the

southern part of the reserve has

since been secured after Mr Britten

contacted city council about

it in June.

Principal finishes up at St Margaret’s

Fire rages, homes at risk

Gillian Simpson

takes up new

girls’ school

challenge

• By Sophie Cornish

AFTER TEN years at St

Margaret’s College, principal

Gillian Simpson hopes to

continue “empowering and

educating young women” in her

next role.

Mrs Simpson will finish up at

the school at the end of this week

after a decade in the role.

While continuing to live in

Canterbury, Mrs Simpson will

move onto a new venture, designing

and developing a girls’ school

in Auckland for “less fortunate

children in struggling circumstances,”

she said.

About 700 people attended a

farewell event which Mrs Simpson

described as “completely

overwhelming.”

Canadian-born Diana Patchett

will step into the role at the start

of term three, leaving her post as

principal of Auckland’s Kristin

Junior School.

“We have had some really good

times in transition together; it’s

been really helpful for the community,”

said Mrs Simpson.

“She’s just as passionate about

educating young women as I am.”

Leading the school’s rebuild

after the earthquakes, when

almost 95 per cent of the

campus was lost, was the most

challenging time for Mrs

Simpson.

“It’s been an incredible

journey of learning . . . I had to

learn to work in adverse and

extraordinary circumstances that

I’ve never worked in before.”

Mrs Simpson doesn’t believe

the role has changed her since

she first began in 2008, at the age

of 53.

SAYING GOODBYE:

St Margaret’s College

principal Gillian Simpson

will finish up her role at

the school at the end

of this week. (Right)

– Board of trustees

chairman Albert Brantley

spoke at her farewell

event. (Below) – Head

girl Jemima Vaughan

and deputy head girl

Mia Thomson make

a speech for their

departing principal.

“The key in leadership is that if

you are authentic and true to who

you are then you don’t change.

For me, it’s about passion, kindness,

collaboration and community

– none of that has changed.”

Mrs Simpson credited her

husband David, describing their

relationship as “an absolute partnership

of support.”

“He’s the person who’s kept me

strong all the way through

. . . he loves the community just

as much as I do. He was very

involved during the earthquake,

right at a grassroots level.

Mixed reaction to Northern Corridor traffic plan

•From page 1

It stated that residents and

businesses in St Albans, Mairehau

and Edgeware will pay the

costs socially and financially to

accommodate North Canterbury

residents getting to and from the

city quicker.

City council head of transport

Richard Osborne said the main

concerns of submitters were the

loss of on-street parking for local

businesses, a potential loss of

a sense of community and the

safety of pedestrians, particularly

schoolchildren.

Co-owner of Sincock and Till

Audiology, Carolyn Till, is concerned

she may not be able to run

her business if the intersection

outside her work near the corners

of Barbadoes and Warrington Sts

is upgraded.

“There won’t be any point in

me being here because it will be

too noisy to practice because of

the roadworks . . . we are very

close to the intersection and

we are a noise-sensitive business,

we test hearing, I fit hearing aids

and need a certain level of quietness.”

“I am also concerned that

people won’t be able to get to me.

Some of our clients are

more elderly and if there is poor

access then I do have concerns

about them being able to get to

me.

Community board chairwoman

Ali Jones said the decisions

are extremely challenging

for everyone.

“The board is really pleased so

many people have contributed

with their feedback. We are never

going to please everyone but we

are working as hard as we can

to do the best with what we have

to work with. We look forward

to working through the community’s

concerns as we move

forward.”

Mr Osborne said all submitters

will be receiving an email in the

next few weeks offering them the

opportunity to speak at a community

board meeting later this

year.

Feedback has been passed onto

an independent traffic expert

who will prepare a Downstream

Effects Management Plan that

addresses the impacts of the

CNC.

people’s lives. We pride ourselves on being a successful

school that is highly regarded in the community for

its high-quality, values-based learning and specialist

Burnside High School has an outstanding reputation for

its ability to ensure that students achieve very well. We

do this through our focus on providing a high-quality,

co-educational learning environment. We are delighted

that, over the next few years, there will be a major

redevelopment of our campus.

Our size and all the advantages that this brings is a point

of difference and is what makes this decile 8, state, coeducational

school special. The seven significant features

that make Burnside High School a leader of learning are,

in no particular order:

• We are a centre for academic excellence with an

emphasis on high-quality teaching practices and

outstanding achievement.

• We are co-educational and multi-cultural, reflecting the

social reality of our nation and our world, and allowing

young female and male students opportunities to

develop learning relationships based on absolute and

genuine respect and equality.

• Our roll of around 2,500 students enables us to

provide an extensive, diverse and specialised

curriculum that caters for and challenges students of

all abilities.

• We provide an exceptionally wide range of cocurricular

opportunities (music, drama, dance, clubs

and sports) for students to enjoy, learn new skills, to

make friends, take leadership roles, and achieve at a

high level.

• We are a caring school where students are known and

supported as individuals in a positive, inclusive and

well-resourced learning environment.

• We value effective relationships with parents/whanau

and the wider community to improve outcomes for

students.

• We are innovative and responsive to the evolving

nature of society through continuous and rigorous

review and evaluation of our systems, practices and

procedures.

These seven factors contribute to the obvious pride that

we all have in our school.

Burnside High School, in partnership with whanau, has

the proven ability to assist students develop the skills,

attributes, and attitudes to make a success of their lives

in the workplace, in the community, and as members of

supportive and loving families. I believe in, and am proud

of, Burnside High School; and feel privileged to be its

principal.

Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tūohu koe me he maunga

teitei, ko Aoraki anake

Pursue excellence, and if you are to ever bow – let it only

be to a lofty mountain, Aoraki.

Phil Holstein,

Principal

Burnside High School Music Department

Term 2 has seen a remarkable number of impressive

achievements by our talented musicians on the national and

regional stage.

The Burnside High School Big Band and SMP Jazz Combos

embarked on a week-long tour of the North Island, performing

at the Manawatu Jazz Festival and the NZSM (Wellington)

Jazz Festival where they won a total of 19 separate awards,

including Best Big Band and Best Combo at each festival. An

outstanding achievement.

At the ARA Jazz Quest Combo Competition this success was

repeated with SMP Combo 1 won “Best Combo” and a further

five individual awards were won.

Dr Dave Lisik, Head of Jazz Theory and Composition at the

New Zealand School of Music writes: “What this doesn’t

illustrate, given that Burnside’s jazz groups routinely have

successful individuals and groups winning awards, is how

the Jazz Programme as a whole continues to improve. Huge

congratulations to everyone!”

At the regional NZCF Big Sing competition, Burnside’s choirs

were once again in the spotlight and received a number of

coveted awards:

Junior Performance Choir

• Outstanding Recital by a Junior Choir

Aurora Voices

• Outstanding performance of a composition with a Maori or

Pacifica text

• Outstanding performance of an Early Music composition

• Outstanding Recital by a Treble Choir

Bel Canto

• Outstanding Recital by a Girls’ Choir

Senior Chorale

• Outstanding performance of a New Zealand Composition

• Outstanding Recital by a Mixed Voice Choir

• University of Canterbury School of Music Award for

best performance of a New Zealand work at the Big Sing

Canterbury and West Coast competition 2018

Burnside entered a total of 13 groups in the annual NZCT

Chamber Music Contest this year, two of which were selected

for the district, and subsequently, the regional final: RAQS

(Hijiri Yamamoto, violin; Claudia Crosland, Alto Saxophone;

Lixin Zhang, piano) and The Rota Trio (Ashley Leng, violin;

Emica Taylor, flute; Tetsuya Yamada, piano). Maggie Ma (cello)

and Juliette Ma (violin), both Burnside students also featured

in the final as part of a composite school group.

RAQS were successful in winning the Southern Regional Final

overall, an outstanding achievement in this highly competitive

contest.

The Mendelssohn Trio (Lily Doak, Samantha Chiang and Cherry

Inazumi) won a KBB award at the District Final of the contest.

Ashburton Exchange

Just over 130 students travelled to Ashburton to compete

across seven sports and in 13 matches at the annual

Winter Sports Ashburton College Exchange. The Sports

Exchange has been a major and popular event on the

school calendar for many years. In the past over 200

students normally compete but this year the wetter

weather played havoc with the grounds forcing football

and rugby matches to be cancelled.

Hayden Cox (Boys Hockey)

Congratulations to Year 13 student Lixin Zhang, winner of last

year’s Wallace Piano Competition, on the release of his first CD

recording on the Rattle record label and for the stunning CD

launch concert he performed at The Piano Centre for Music

and the Arts.

Finally, congratulations to Keira Jonkers (Year 11) and Dylan

Jonkers (Year 9) for reaching the regional final of the

RockQuest competition with their bands “Better than Bacon”

and “Class Disruption”.

Term 3 sees the national final stages of all three competitions;

best wishes to all students and staff involved.

The stakes are always high playing for pride and the

coveted Ashburton - Burnside trophy. Ashburton College

snuck off with after a close battle winning 7 - 5. Burnside’s

strength this year was in hockey with both the boys and

girls teams winning convincingly 7-0 and 8-0 respectively.

Principal Phil Holstein took full responsibility for the loss

and offered to walk home from Ashburton!

It was a very successful exchange with both schools

continuing to build a strong relationship through sport.

St Alban celebrated for

the first time in suburb

• By Sophie Cornish

ST ALBANS residents have come

together for the first time to

mark the day that the suburb’s

namesake is celebrated.

A sold-out event at Bailies

Bar in Edgeware Village saw

members from several different

Edgeware and St Albans community

groups come together for

a Romano-British-themed meal.

The menu was based around

delicacies from the third century

AD, including barley broth, flat

breads, mussel pots cooked with

leeks and white wine, roasted

winter vegetables, grilled meats

and baked fruit pieces for dessert.

The event acknowledged the

story of St Alban, who the English

city of the same name was

named after. The residents celebrated

the suburb’s connection

with St Albans in Hertfordshire.

St Albans in Christchurch

was named in memory of a 19th

century duchess of St Albans –

actress Harriet Mellon. She was a

cousin of George Dickinson who

started a farm just outside the

four avenues, covering much of

Merivale and Mairehau.

The name was given later to

the borough of St Albans, which

HISTORY: Residents from Edgeware and St Albans came

together to celebrate St Alban on the saint’s day.

merged with the city council in

1903.

As for St Alban, little is known

about the martyr’s life, except

that he was a retired Roman

soldier who was executed after he

posed as a Christian priest that

the Romans were chasing.

Friends of Abberley Park

member Patricia Wallace, who

attended the dinner, said the staff

at Bailies rose to the challenge of

presenting a themed meal for the

occasion.

“It proved to be such an

enjoyable evening that there are

suggestions it should become a

regular annual event,” she said.

The former town crier, Stephen

Symons, also attended and gave a

speech about both St Alban and

the English city named after him.

A POPULAR recreation spot in

Harewood will get toilet blocks

to stop people using the bushes.

Roto Kohatu Reserve on Sawyers

Arms Rd currently only has

portaloos.

City council staff recomended

two toilet blocks at a meeting

last night.

Visitor numbers to the reserve

– which is home to Lake Rua

and Lake Tahi – were so high

over summer that the capacity

of the portaloos was inadequate,

and they were quickly filled

before servicing could be arranged.

The portaloo contract

requires a prior notification

period of several weeks to

request additional emptying or

Popular Harewood reserve

likely to get toilet block

the portaloos were not emptied

at the end of the busy summer

days.

In a report to the community

board, city council staff said the

public were using areas behind

bushes and containers as toilets

and had received feedback that

faeces and toilet paper had been

seen there.

The popularity of the reserve

increased after the city council

expanded the size of the car

park and entrance last year,

making it more accessible.

Installing the toilet blocks

will be costly due to the underground

services which need to

be installed including wastewater,

water supply and power.

No services like this exist

within the reserve. Close to $3

million has been included in

the Long Term Plan for developments

at The Groynes, Roto Kohatu

Christ’s band

wins regional

contest in

quest for

rock stardom

A CHRIST’S College band

has won the Canterbury

regional finals of the

SmokefreeRockquest.

The Subs took out the band

section on Friday night at The

Foundry. Middleton Grange

School band Merlinco was

second.

The ZM people’s choice award

went to Better than Bacon, which

was formed by students from

Hagley Community College,

Burnside High School and

Shirley Boys’ High.

The Subs, Merlinco and Better

than Bacon will now move onto

the next stage which involves

creating a 12min performance

video. This will be judged by a

panel of industry professionals

and after that some acts will

progress to the national final.

Household A, a combination

of students from St Margaret’s

College, Christchurch Girls’

High, Christ’s and Shirley Boys’

High, was third in the regional

contest.

Run 77 won best song and

Black Wired from St Andrew’s

VICTORY DANCE: Brooke Kingsbury won the

championships in Invercargill.

WHILE HER many of her

friends were getting ready

for the school semi-formal,

one Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

student was putting on a

formal dress of a different

kind.

Year 11 student Brooke

Kingsbury won the Highland

Fling under-16 title at the New

Zealand championships held

in Invercargill.

Brooke is thrilled with the

win, in spite of missing her

school semi-formal for it.

“This honour has made it

worth it,” she said.

Beginning when she was

only three-years-old, highland

dance has been a big part of

Brooke’s life and requires

strength, agility, balance and

precision, she said.

She sits two major dance

exams every year in May and

September, which may result

in a diploma in a few years.

Brooke will next compete

in the under-18 New Zealand

championships in Ashburton

this month. She can often be

seen busking down at Bishopdale

Mall to raise money for

her dancing trips. Earlier this

year, she travelled to Virginia

in the United States with the

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

A highlight this term has been the Academic Colours Assembly which

celebrate the success of our senior students in NCEA. Colours acknowledge

ability, hard work and an understanding of our school values – commitment,

perseverance and courage. One of my favourite sayings is ‘Excellence is

not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do’. All of us

are capable of making hard work a habit, in order to achieve to the best of

our ability.

On siting matters, the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch is investigating

sites which could be suitable for our new school and is actively considering

a number of options. We are excited about the future of Marian and are

hopeful for a decision soon.

With blessings

Mary-Lou Davidson

Marian College Principal

MERCY CUP SPIRIT

Teams of Marian College students

competed in the Mercy Cup

Tournament in Timaru recently. The

annual winter event is held between six

Catholic schools in the region and each

take turns hosting. The schools send

their best football, hockey and netball

teams to compete and enjoy the spirit

of competition, collegiality and shared

Catholic special character and values.

WELLBEING TEAM

As winter settles in, the Marian

College Student Wellbeing Team has

been bringing sunshine and light into

the school.

The team includes students across all

year levels and is headed by senior

leaders Megan White and Mia Blyth.

“Every week two girls pair up – a

senior and junior student who might

not know each other – and come up

with a project drawn from the Hauora

model of wellbeing,” Megan explains.

“The topics are physical wellbeing,

mental and emotional, as well as social

and spiritual wellbeing.”

Projects include signing a pledge

t-shirt against bullying, stress-relieving

colouring in activities, crafts a ‘shout

out board’ where compliments are

shared and a performance by the ‘I am

Unbreakable’ world hip hop champion

dance crew (pictured).

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

We wanted a college that could meet the spiritual and cultural needs of our

girls. We liked the sense of community, that expects and models caring for

each other.

Chris and Angela Rewha

Marian offers a supportive and nurturing environment where our daughters

are known and not lost in the crowd.

BIG SING

Marian College’s talented senior choir Messa Di Voce performed in the Big Sing

- the secondary schools choral festival - at The Piano recently. Messa Di Voce

received an award for outstanding performance of a Māori song – Tīhore Mai.

At Marian our daughters have not only thrived academically, they’ve

received a well-rounded education with a strong understanding of

community and service.

Papanui High student in

under-17 NZ squad

• By Jacob Page

PAPANUI HIGH student Sam

Richards may be a boy playing

men but he is turning heads in

the process.

The 15-year-old is the youngest

player in the Coastal Spirit

premier men’s reserves team but

is more than holding his own.

The defender has made the

wider training squad for the New

Zealand under-17 team, which

are attempting to qualify for the

under-17 World Cup in Peru in

October.

The news came as a shock to

the centre back who had been

left out of the talent centre camp

where players are normally

spotted and then picked for New

Zealand.

“I’d attended a couple (of

camps) and then found out I

wasn’t named for the previous

one so to get the call that I made

the squad was a little bit of a

surprise.”

Sam started playing as a defensive

midfielder but moved into

the centre back position more

than two years ago.

After making the step up from

15th grade football to the reserves

this season, he said he believed

playing men had improved his

game. “Initially I was quite nervous

about it, but after my first

game that feeling settled down,”

he said. The speed is quicker and

obviously the games are more

physical which took Sam some

time to get used to.

“Because everyone is stronger

than me, it’s really taught me how

to protect the ball better and use

my body to keep the ball away

from attackers,” he said.

“I pride myself on being calm

under pressure and I think that’s

a good quality to have in the

position that I play.” Sam used

to play touch rugby but he gave

it away as his commitment to

football grew.

“I love the game and, for

me, I get as much joy out of

shutting down an attack or

stopping a goal as others do

scoring them.”

New Zealand under-17 training

camps will be held in Auckland

throughout the winter.

Williams pushes for

powerchair football

World Cup selection

• By Jacob Page

PAPANUI’S DIANE Williams

is eager to push her claim for

national selection at the first

New Zealand Powerchair

Football tournament in Taupo

this weekend.

Williams will have the benefit

of her community-funded

$23,000 powerchair, which is

specifically designed for her.

“I had all sorts of donations

from individuals – $1000 from

the Mike Pero Group

and $12,000 from (the

Mazda Foundation).”

She will represent

Canterbury at the

Taupo Sports Events

Centre from Saturday

to Monday.

Following the

tournament, a team

will be selected to

represent New Zealand at the

upcoming Australian national

championships in September.

It has also been announced

that Australia will be hosting

the 2021 FIPFA World Cup, allowing

the opportunity for New

Zealand to qualify through an

Asia Pacific Cup qualification

tournament next year.

Powerchair football is a competitive

team sport for people

SPORTS

with a physical disability.

The rules are similar to

outdoor football with a few

modifications. Players include

people with quadriplegia, neuromuscular

conditions, cerebral

palsy, head and spinal cord

injuries and other disabilities.

Williams (left) suffered

a stroke in 2010

which left her paralysed

down one side of her

body.

“Previously I’d played

indoor cricket and

indoor netball and loved

it so wheelchair football

was a good fit for me.”

While she has represented

New Zealand previously,

Williams said she was motivated

by the prospect of playing

in the World Cup.

“That’s the motivation for

now,” she said. “Playing the

game is freeing to me, and when

I play, I play hard.”

Williams says her chair,

which is specifically designed

for her body, means she can

play with comfort and freedom.

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years

and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone

can phone for an appointment.

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce

our cognitive

function.

TEBONIN

is prescribed

worldwide

as a natural

supportive agent

for a healthy brain

and cognitive

function.

It supports

healthy mental

performance,

concentration,

focus, alertness,

motor function

and to help with

many conditions

including tinnitus

(ringing and noise

in the ears), vertigo and normal balance.

TEBONIN improves micro-circulation

and helps the blood flow reach those

critical places it needs to get. It is a potent

anti-oxidant and makes the red blood

cells more pliable and capillary walls more

flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

The importance of

good blood pressure?

Blood Pressure is an

indicator of cardiovascular

as well as overall health.

Healthy blood flow is vital for

a healthy body as the blood

plasma transports nutrients,

hormones, metabolic waste,

oxygen and CO2 throughout

the body. An area in the brain

keeps check on blood flow

to ensure health of all cells

and the organs they make up.

If blood flow is reduced the

brain will try to normalise

blood flow by adjusting the

heart strength, frequency

(Pulse Rate) as well as the width of blood

vessels all via the central nervous system.

Over a period of time the blood pressure

may increase due to the deterioration of

blood flow and other factors. A higher B/P

is not ideal and is considered a major risk

factor for strokes, aneurysm, organ failure

and heart failure. Even moderate elevation

of B/P is considered a major reason for

shorter life expectancy. If we can maintain

our B/P in the normal range our overall

health will be improved. Systolic B/P (The

upper figure) is when the heart contracts

and pushes blood around the body. Ideally

at rest this should be between 100 to 120.

The diastolic B/P (The lower figure) is the

pressure in the arteries between beats and

ideally at rest this should be between 60

to 70.

how’s your blood pressure?

Keeping our blood pressure (B/P) in the normal range is a positive sign of good health. The higher the B/P above normal the more

likely we may suffer a stroke, aneurysm, organ failure or heart attack. Even moderate elevation of B/P can lead to shortened life

expectancy. Checking your B/P on a regular basis with our easy to use B/P monitors allows you to make changes to your lifestyle,

diet & nutrition when necessary.

dampness

in your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes

that suffer from rising damp which can be

associated with health problems. Independent

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can

rise from the ground and enter a house every

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation

and musty smells. Moulds can produce

various allergic reactions and the

frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

HOME & HEATING

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 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

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

classics as ‘In My Room’, ‘God Only Knows’,

‘Good Vibrations’ and ‘Help Me Rhonda’ in

the genius of Brian Wilson in the form of

selections from the seminal ‘Pet Sounds’,

and cult favourites from the legendary

‘Smile’ album.

night to celebrate some of the finest music

committed to tape over four decades.
