Heavy trucks using short cut<br />

frustrate Avonhead residents<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

MORE RESIDENTS have had<br />

enough of big trucks rumbling<br />

past their front doors.<br />

Avonhead people have now<br />

joined the ever-growing queue of<br />

people wanting the city council to<br />

do something about the issue.<br />

Residents say since the closure<br />

of the Avonhead and Russley<br />

Rd intersection in November<br />

2015, heavy vehicles are taking<br />

short cuts from Roydvale Ave,<br />

Hawthornden Rd and Cutts Rd.<br />

Hawthornden Rd resident Jon<br />

Leadbeater said the increased<br />

heavy vehicles made the area<br />

unsafe.<br />

“I’m worried about the safety of<br />

the pedestrians and the children<br />

in the area because it’s a narrow<br />

road.”<br />

It follows on from residents<br />

in Fendalton and Wigram also<br />

voicing opposition to heavy<br />

vehicles going through residential<br />

areas.<br />

Lady Wigram Retirement Village<br />

residents on Lodestar Ave<br />

complained about heavy traffic<br />

last year.<br />

Fendalton residents last month<br />

lost their bid to ban heavy vehicles<br />

from the Glandovey and Idris Rd<br />

intersection.<br />

YOU HAVE to sympathise with residents<br />

having to deal with big trucks rumbling<br />

past their homes (see page 1).<br />

Christchurch is growing at a quick<br />

rate. That means more people, more<br />

housing, more cars and more trucks. The roads are becoming<br />

increasingly congested. We’re nothing like Auckland but<br />

nevertheless our roading network is busy.<br />

It’s no surprise increasing numbers of motorists are seeking<br />

a quicker route to get to where they are going, and that often<br />

means away from the main arterials which grind to walking<br />

pace at times.<br />

Once quiet residential streets and roads are now busy.<br />

The answer is not an easy one, but there is one guarantee: Big<br />

trucks will continue to roll through more neighbourhoods.<br />

Call to slow traffic near school<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

VILLA MARIA College<br />

principal Deborah Brosnahan<br />

wants traffic to slow down before<br />

a student gets killed.<br />

Ms Brosnahan said Brodie St,<br />

on the west side of the school is<br />

dangerous in peak times.<br />

This year there have been two<br />

crashes at the intersection of<br />

Yaldhurst Rd and Brodie St, she<br />

said.<br />

“Teachers are always on duty<br />

to keep an eye on what’s happening,<br />

but we’re very conscious of<br />

the fear that a girl could be killed<br />

out there.”<br />

Both crashes were minor, she<br />

said.<br />

“One of them was a member of<br />

staff trying to cross [the intersection]<br />

in her car, and [she was<br />

with] one of our special needs<br />

students.<br />

“Some of our girls had to step<br />

into help an elderly woman who<br />

had a crash on that corner,” Ms<br />

Brosnahan said.<br />

The current speed limit on<br />

Brodie St is 50km/h.<br />

“That [speed limit] seems silly<br />

because most of us should be<br />

sensible and slowing down.<br />

“They do have some trafficcalming<br />

measures like speed<br />

bumps, but it is a narrow street<br />

and some signage to slow traffic<br />

would be good,” Ms Brosnahan<br />

said.<br />

The school also wanted parking<br />

restrictions to be better<br />

enforced on Brodie St. The street<br />

has a 30min parking limit on<br />

school days.<br />

Ms Brosnahan said many of<br />

the culprits were students but<br />

said reducing the parked cars<br />

would also improve safety.<br />

The community board has<br />

asked city council staff to look<br />

into reducing the speed limit on<br />

the street.<br />

Said board chairman Mike<br />

Mora: “We’ve already got staff<br />

working on it, they are doing traffic<br />

counts and research into the area.”<br />

DANGER: Villa<br />

Maria College<br />

principal<br />

Deborah<br />

Brosnahan is<br />

concerned<br />

about the<br />

speed of<br />

Brodie St<br />

traffic.<br />

He said the board gave the city<br />

council traffic department until<br />

October to report back with<br />

their findings.<br />

“We are looking at reducing<br />

the speed limit to 30km/h or<br />

40km/h and whatever other<br />

measures the traffic engineers<br />

may recommend,” Mr Mora<br />

said.<br />

GARDEN REOPENS<br />

The Riccarton West Community<br />

Mr Leadbeater said heavy vehicles<br />

cutting through Avonhead<br />

should use a “main arterial”<br />

such as Withells Rd.<br />

“Windows are vibrating on the<br />

houses in the morning, it’s just<br />

not suitable for heavy traffic.<br />

“There should be a limit put<br />

on the weight of vehicles travelling<br />

on Hawthornden and the<br />

bottom of Avonhead Rd and<br />

Roydvale Ave,” Mr Leadbeater<br />

said.<br />

The Avonhead Community<br />

Group asked the Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood Community<br />

Board in April last year to<br />

restrict heavy vehicle usage on<br />

the streets.<br />

The board asked council staff<br />

to investigate whether vehicles<br />

weighing nine tonnes or greater<br />

could be banned from taking<br />

the route which beginning at<br />

Roydvale Ave.<br />

City council transport operations<br />

manager Steffan Thomas<br />

said that Roydvale Ave is a<br />

collector road, and intended to<br />

carry more heavy traffic than<br />

local residential streets.<br />

And for Hawthornden Rd, Mr<br />

Thomas said staff has not considered<br />

if heavy vehicles should<br />

be restricted at the present time.<br />

There is also no traffic count<br />

data on the road, he said.<br />

The lack progress has frustrated<br />

Mr Leadbeater.<br />

“We were hoping that would<br />

all get sorted out, but nothing<br />

has happened.”<br />

Waimairi Ward councillor<br />

Raf Manji agreed with a heavy<br />

vehicle restriction at Roydvale<br />

Ave and Hawthornden Rd.<br />

“It can be a frustrating for<br />

elected members given we’re<br />

taking feedback from the community,<br />

but the way the traffic<br />

operations work is they have to<br />

do [traffic] counts and [they]<br />

tend to determine what the<br />

policy outcome is,” Cr Manji<br />

Firefighters move into new Wigram base<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

THE NEW $7.4 million fire<br />

station in Wigram was opened<br />

on Friday.<br />

The station replaces the old<br />

Sockburn station at the former<br />

Wigram Air Force base and will<br />

be home to 28 firefighters.<br />

Fire and<br />

Emergency<br />

Area Commander<br />

Dave<br />

Stackhouse<br />

said the new<br />

station will be a<br />

state of the art<br />

Dave<br />

Stackhouse<br />

facility.<br />

“[It] has been<br />

designed to<br />

meet the future<br />

needs of the Christchurch community.<br />

“The new station is equipped to<br />

deal with major events, including<br />

self-sufficient water storage, an<br />

on-site power generator and grey<br />

water holding tanks,” Mr Stackhouse<br />

said.<br />

The new station’s location<br />

on the corner of Wilmers and<br />

Springs Rd, will put the crew in<br />

a strategic position to support<br />

other stations in the city, he said.<br />

There will also be a purposebuilt<br />

chemical decontamination<br />

facility.<br />

“It means the crew coming<br />

back from a fire or emergency<br />

can decontaminate in a clean<br />

zone,” Mr Stackhouse said.<br />

The new station is part of Fire<br />

and Emergency’s $50 million city<br />

rebuild programme.<br />

It will see six career, one composite<br />

(career and volunteer) and<br />

three volunteer stations built in a<br />

redevelopment of the city’s entire<br />

network of fire stations.<br />

Other stations that have been<br />

completed are Anzac Drive,<br />

Spreydon and Woolston.<br />

“Fire and Emergency has provided<br />

the foundation of a great<br />

emergency service capability, one<br />

that will contribute to Christchurch’s<br />

protection and resilience<br />

for many years.<br />

“This rebuild programme<br />

represents a significant organisational<br />

investment and has<br />

provided a unique opportunity to<br />

build a future-proofed network<br />

of stations in Christchurch that<br />

meets community needs and<br />

addresses an ever-changing call<br />

type and demand.”<br />

Community groups share $278,000<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

THIRTY-THREE community<br />

groups will be getting a share<br />

of a $278,000 ratepayer-funded<br />

grant.<br />

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board moved<br />

to grant the money last week.<br />

The highest beneficiary of the<br />

fund was Hornby Presbyterian<br />

Community Trust, which received<br />

$38,000. The trust is in its<br />

30th year of operation.<br />

The money will come from the<br />

board’s $570,000 Strengthening<br />

Communities Fund.<br />

The trust’s director Dr Blair<br />

Stirling said the funding from<br />

the community board is invaluable<br />

and provides cover for staff<br />

wages providing social services.<br />

“We’re trying to provide for<br />

psychological, sociological and<br />

physical needs of people.”<br />

The trust has 13 counsellors<br />

and two social workers providing<br />

services for 200 children<br />

in the south-west of the city. In<br />

total, the trust sees 2000 clients<br />

a year.<br />

The services also include providing<br />

firewood to families in<br />

need, Dr Stirling said.<br />

“The [board’s] contribution is<br />

part of quite a significant bit of<br />

work that we do.”<br />

It operates a mixed payment<br />

system, he said.<br />

“Where people can afford<br />

the service, they pay. We use<br />

the profit to fully subsidise the<br />

service to the more vulnerable,”<br />

Dr Stirling said.<br />

The board has provided funding<br />

to the group throughout the<br />

past decade.<br />

“The community board has<br />

been a tremendous support for<br />

the trust over the years,” Dr<br />

Stirling said.<br />

One-hundred and twenty-five<br />

thousand dollars from the fund<br />

was pre-allocated last year for<br />

four multi-year community projects.<br />

They were the Community<br />

Development Network, Halswell<br />

Community Project, Halswell<br />

Menzshed and the Oak Development<br />

Trust.<br />

Board chairman Mike Mora<br />

said it was normal to allocate<br />

a six-figure sum to various<br />

community groups early in the<br />

financial year.<br />

Mr Mora said the fund has a<br />

strict criteria and can only be<br />

used by non-profit community<br />

organisations.<br />

Nine sports clubs from the<br />

city’s west also received a share<br />

of the fund.<br />

BACKING: Hornby Presbyterian Community Trust support workers Kerrie van Woerden, Kirstin<br />

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Two offenders who broke into the New Zealand Cars yard were caught<br />

on a CCTV security camera. (Below) – Managers Ryan Lawton and Christopher Schwartz stand by<br />

the now repaired fence, which was cut open by the thieves.<br />

Car yard burglars caught<br />

on camera in Sockburn<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

BURGLARS BROKE into a<br />

Sockburn car yard and stole two<br />

cars, using one to tow the other<br />

away.<br />

Two offenders cut through<br />

a fence at New Zealand Cars<br />

Canterbury on Waterloo Rd in<br />

the early hours of Monday last<br />

week.<br />

A $23,000 red 2009 Mazda<br />

MPS turbo, and a $9000 white<br />

2007 Toyota Wish were stolen,<br />

business manager Christopher<br />

Schwartz said.<br />

Both cars did not have<br />

registration number plates.<br />

The stolen Mazda MPS was<br />

a “relatively rare” version with<br />

only eight or nine in the city, he<br />

said.<br />

“They had to tow that one<br />

out by using the other stolen<br />

[Toyota Wish].” A set of number<br />

plates from another car at the<br />

dealership was also stolen. The<br />

registration number GTW691<br />

was taken from a 2008 Mazda<br />

Atenza sedan.<br />

“It’s a sad event really,” Mr<br />

Schwartz said.<br />

The break-in was captured on a<br />

CCTV security camera. But<br />

the offenders could not be<br />

identified because of the quality<br />

of the footage. Mr Schwartz<br />

appealed for witnesses to come<br />

forward.<br />

Anyone with information<br />

should phone the police on 363<br />

7400.<br />

EXTENDED ROAD barriers<br />

are being installed in some<br />

parts of the red zone to stop<br />

illegal rubbish dumping and<br />

boy racers from destroying the<br />

vegetation.<br />

They will also create tighter<br />

security in the<br />

area. In early<br />

2016, barriers<br />

were placed<br />

across roads in<br />

the red zone to<br />

deter anti-social<br />

Steffan<br />

Thomas<br />

behaviour and<br />

illegal rubbish<br />

dumping.<br />

“The barriers<br />

were designed to allow<br />

pedestrians and cyclists access<br />

to the area but to keep vehicles<br />

out. Unfortunately, some<br />

drivers continued to bypass<br />

the barriers by mounting the<br />

footpath and driving around<br />

them,’’ said city council<br />

transport operations manager<br />

Steffan Thomas.<br />

“Once past the barriers,<br />

they’re using the area as<br />

a dumping ground for<br />

their rubbish, which is<br />

unacceptable,” he said.<br />

“We want to prevent that<br />

from happening and have been<br />

working on the issue with Land<br />

Information New Zealand,” Mr<br />

Thomas said.<br />

LINZ manages red-zoned<br />

land for the Crown but the city<br />

council owns the roads and<br />

footpaths.<br />

“LINZ has been working<br />

to lengthen the barriers<br />

Now<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Red zone barriers<br />

get bigger to deter<br />

boy racers, vandals<br />

in targeted areas so it no<br />

longer possible for cars to get<br />

around them by driving on<br />

the footpath. They’re adding<br />

additional bollards on the<br />

footpath and berm areas and<br />

stringing chains between them,<br />

so that cars can’t get past but<br />

cyclists and pedestrians can<br />

still get through,’’ Mr Thomas<br />

said.<br />

“We hope this will bring an<br />

end to the illegal dumping and<br />

stop unauthorised vehicles<br />

from accessing the area.’’<br />

LINZ has been working<br />

closely with landscaping<br />

contractors and others<br />

who need legitimate access<br />

through a smart lock and<br />

key system to open the<br />

barriers.<br />

“In the past weeks, our team<br />

has also been working closely<br />

with whitebaiters who want<br />

to get access to their favourite<br />

spots,” said Mr Bradley<br />

“We have successfully<br />

arranged access for over 60<br />

individuals and the feedback<br />

has been very positive,” he<br />

said.<br />

The whitebaiters register<br />

their names with LINZ in<br />

exchange for a special key to<br />

open specific gates.<br />

Mr Bradley said vandals<br />

rammed some of the new gates<br />

to get access to the streets.<br />

“But we have replaced those<br />

gates with heavier posts and<br />

other security measures, like<br />

cameras, to keep those people<br />

out of the red zone.”<br />

BLOCKED:<br />

Extended<br />

road barriers<br />

are being<br />

installed in<br />

parts of the<br />

vandals. ​<br />

Quizmasters battle at Cobham Intermediate<br />

• By Anan Zaki<br />

FENDALTON Open-Air<br />

and St Martins schools took<br />

out the Otago Daily Times<br />

Extra! Canterbury quiz at<br />

Cobham Intermediate on<br />

Wednesday.<br />

The winners of the year 5<br />

and 6 quiz were Sam Atkinson,<br />

11, Aran Cudmore, 10, and<br />

Aaron Kwak, 10, with a score 90<br />

out of 100.<br />

Sam, who was part of the<br />

victorious Fendalton team, said<br />

it was the first time the trio had<br />

won and it felt “pretty awesome”.<br />

He was also proud of his teammates.<br />

“It was probably Aaron’s<br />

knowledge of everything that got<br />

us the win,” Sam said.<br />

The second and third-placed<br />

teams finished neck and neck,<br />

with Prebbleton School on 82<br />

points and Avonhead School on<br />

81 points.<br />

Year 5 and 6 defending champions,<br />

Medbury School, finished<br />

sixth. The St Martins School trio<br />

took out the year 7 and 8<br />

quiz, and were elated after the<br />

win. Dilkee Nanayokkara, Stella<br />

Shields and Oliver Williams,<br />

all 12, scored 94 points out of<br />

100. Stella said her team was the<br />

strongest in the world mapping<br />

question. “We struggled on the<br />

newspaper search and guess who<br />

question,” Dilkee said.<br />

It was the first time the three<br />

pupils from St Martins had won<br />

the competition.<br />

Christchurch South<br />

Intermediate finished second<br />

on 88 points ahead of defending<br />

champions Cobham Intermediate<br />

which were<br />

third on 83 points.<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

QUESTIONS: The Otago Daily Times Extra! Canterbury quiz<br />

was held at Cobham Intermediate on Wednesday.<br />

PHOTOS: ANAN ZAKI<br />

It was organiser Tricia Rowe’s<br />

first time running the quiz.<br />

“It’s been really exciting<br />

and nerve-wracking. It’s been<br />

challenging making sure<br />

the questions were pitched<br />

at the right level,” Mrs Rowe<br />

WINNERS: (Above) – St Martins School pupils Oliver Williams,<br />

Dilkee Nanayokkara and Stella Shields, and (below) Fendalton<br />

Open Air School’s Aran Cudmore, Aaron Kwak and Sam<br />

Atkinson won their respective quizzes.<br />

said. Both quizzes attracted 237<br />

pupils from across Canterbury.<br />

They were run by the Otago<br />

Daily Times through Extra! – its<br />

monthly <strong>News</strong>papers in Education<br />

publication for primary, intermediate<br />

and junior secondary<br />

Frustration over Russley parking<br />

Avonhead<br />

Community<br />

Group<br />

chairman<br />

Somnath<br />

Sarkar Bagchi<br />

is critical<br />

of the city<br />

council’s ability to solve<br />

ongoing parking problems<br />

in Russley<br />

WESTERN NEWS<br />

THE CITY council in my<br />

view has a simple community<br />

involvement strategy: “Stall and<br />

they’ll go away.”<br />

The ratepayers of north-west<br />

Christchurch are unfortunately<br />

all too familiar with this strategy.<br />

Seldom have city council<br />

officers genuinely listened to<br />

residents’ concerns and taken<br />

meaningful steps to address<br />

them.<br />

One recent example comes to<br />

mind – the parking problems<br />

faced by residents of Fenhall St,<br />

Pinehurst Cres and Bentley St.<br />

These residents have had to<br />

put up with cars parked in front<br />

of their houses all day for six<br />

years. This is a result of a bungled<br />

city council decision to allow a<br />

business park at the end of their<br />

street without sufficient on-site<br />

parking.<br />

Residents got fed up with<br />

council trying to “mitigate” with<br />

NUISANCE: Car parking spaces are hard to come by on Fenhall<br />

St near the Airport Business Park. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

poorly enforced parking limits<br />

and, in April last year, asked for<br />

a “residents only” parking policy<br />

for the area.<br />

Sixteen months later, the city<br />

council has not yet formed a view<br />

on whether or not “residents<br />

only” parking is an option.<br />

City council officers are simply<br />

not interested in responding<br />

meaningfully to residents’<br />

concerns. This is at odds with<br />

the message that we get from our<br />

elected representatives.<br />

Representatives encourage us<br />

to come up with initiatives and<br />

approach them with the local<br />

issues.<br />

We do so and then the city<br />

council does nothing about them.<br />

Our councillors have ultimately<br />

failed to break the officers’<br />

hegemony over deciding what<br />

The Subs to play Rockquest final<br />

CHRIST’S College band<br />

The Subs has kept its<br />

Smokefreerockquest dream<br />

alive.<br />

The band has been named<br />

the people’s choice public vote<br />

winner to book a spot in next<br />

month’s national final.<br />

The Subs won the regional<br />

final in June but were not<br />

selected for the national final<br />

after submitting a video to<br />

judges.<br />

However, the five-piece,<br />

pop-punk band rallied to gain<br />

the support needed to win the<br />

people’s choice vote and the<br />

last remaining place in the top<br />

10. The Subs will now play in<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

the final on <strong>September</strong> 22 at<br />

the Dorothy Winstone Centre,<br />

Auckland.<br />

The band is made up of<br />

year 12 students Jono Stewart,<br />

vocals and rhythm guitar;<br />

Zac Matson, bass; Humphrey<br />

Bullen, lead guitar; Matias<br />

Biraben-Clough, drums; and<br />

Max Toth, keyboard and<br />

synth.<br />

Jono said the band is called<br />

The Subs because it is made<br />

up of “bench-warmers” from<br />

Run77 – the winner of last<br />

year’s regional Smokefreerockquest<br />

final.<br />

The Subs beat Run77 to<br />

claim the regional final title<br />

this year.<br />

“When I heard second and<br />

third place read out, my heart<br />

sank – I thought Run77 would<br />

win . . . I thought we hadn’t<br />

made it,” Jono said.<br />

But he did admit the rivalry<br />

was a “bit of a joke” between<br />

the bands – they’re actually<br />

good friends.<br />

Jono said The Subs entered<br />

the Smokefreerockquest last<br />

year but didn’t even make it<br />

through the heats.<br />

Eight Hornby club<br />

SPORTS<br />

gymnasts on podium<br />

at China tournament<br />

HORNBY’S Olympia<br />

Gymnastics Club has done<br />

exceptionally well at a<br />

high-quality tournament in<br />

Beijing.<br />

THe team competed in China<br />

under the guidance of coach<br />

Elena Mesheryakova. They<br />

claimed eight podium finishes<br />

against a top international field<br />

from China, Russia, Malaysia,<br />

Thailand, Philippines, Hong<br />

Kong, South Korea and Ukraine.<br />

Burnside High School student<br />

Paris Chin was the standout<br />

performer for the Olympia<br />

team, and won the overall<br />

junior category against many<br />

experienced international<br />

gymnasts.<br />

“Paris is one of New<br />

Zealand’s top gymnasts, and<br />

the prize money will help her<br />

to achieve her goals to become<br />

a top international performer,”<br />

Mesheryakova said.<br />

The tournament was organised<br />

and hosted by well known<br />

Chinese gymnast Ling Zhong,<br />

who represented his country at<br />

the 20<strong>04</strong> Olympics in Athens. It<br />

also featured many other famous<br />

Olympians as special guests and<br />

judges.<br />

The Olympia squad returned<br />

with medals in several different<br />

age group categories for most of<br />

their routines.<br />

Ava Gearry from Oaklands<br />

School and Lilly Eastmure from<br />

Halswell School dominated<br />

their age groups, winning<br />

the freehand, ball and rope<br />

competitions.<br />

Ava won the freehand<br />

competition ahead of Lilly. But<br />

Lilly claimed gold in the ball<br />

category with Ava in fourth. The<br />

Oaklands pupil then got another<br />

gold in the rope competition.<br />

St Andrew’s College year 3<br />

pupil Nika Meyn claimed gold<br />

for Olympia in the freehand<br />

section and bronze with the<br />

ball.<br />

Jocelyn Cai from Oaklands<br />

School completed Olympia’s<br />

success in the freehand by taking<br />

out silver, as well as a runner-up<br />

medal in the hoop routine.<br />

Eleasha Chan, a year 6 pupil<br />

from Aidanfield Christian<br />

School, took bronze in the<br />

freehand and finished fourth<br />

with her ribbon, while year<br />

7 pupil Mikayla Chin from<br />

Avonhead School claimed two<br />

fourth places in the freehand<br />

and rope sections.<br />

The competition was<br />

the second in Asia for the<br />

Olympia squad this year after a<br />

tournament in Osaka, Japan.<br />

Mesheryakova said the<br />

importance of international<br />

experience and exposure cannot<br />

be underestimated.<br />

“These tournaments are very<br />

important for the girls progress<br />

and development as well as<br />

the valuable life and cultural<br />

experiences they gain,” said<br />

Mesheryakova, who used to<br />

coach in Uzbekistan, her native<br />

country.<br />

“Rhythmic gymnastics is a<br />

dynamic and compelling sport<br />

for girls that challenges body<br />

and mind.”<br />

READY: Halswell boxer Megyn McLennan will main event<br />

the Pacific Warriors 2 night at the Hagley Sports Centre on<br />

<strong>September</strong> 15 against Kirwee’s Michaela Jenkins.<br />

McLennan in<br />

ring for first pro<br />

boxing event<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

HALSWELL’S Megyn<br />

McLennan started boxing five<br />

years ago purely to lose weight.<br />

But in 11 days, she will be part<br />

of the first professional women’s<br />

bout to main event a card in<br />

Christchurch.<br />

The 39-year-old registered<br />

nurse will be in the main event<br />

at Strikeforce Boxing’s Pacific<br />

Warriors 2 fundraising night at<br />

the Hagley Sports Centre.<br />

There will be at least six<br />

corporate and amateur bouts on<br />

the under card with McLennan<br />

facing New Zealand Muay Thai<br />

champion, Michaela Jenkins, in<br />

a four-round contest to end the<br />

night.<br />

“If you’d told me I’d be boxing<br />

professionally five years ago,<br />

I would have laughed in your<br />

face,” McLennan said.<br />

“When I first started, the<br />

coaches would laugh at me<br />

because I was the person who<br />

could barely run and couldn’t do<br />

a push-up.” McLennan will enter<br />

her 11th bout overall and second<br />

professional outing after losing<br />

to Nelson’s Dawn Chalmers in<br />

Motueka earlier this year.<br />

“I like to think I’m a busy<br />

fighter but working with<br />

(Strikeforce coach) Steve Brown<br />

has really sharpened my game,”<br />

McLennan said.<br />

“He gives us a toolbox of skills<br />

we can use in the ring and it’s up<br />

to us to make the most of it.”<br />

Kirwee-based Jenkins is<br />

coming off winning her New<br />

Zealand Muay Thai title in June<br />

and was offered this bout almost<br />

straight away.<br />

“I’ve been in camps since<br />

February so it seemed like a<br />

good match-up to take,” said<br />

Jenkins. She said she was<br />

impressed with McLennan’s<br />

effort in her loss to Chalmers.<br />

“I thought she showed how<br />

tough she was because Dawn<br />

is a very credible fighter so I’m<br />

looking forward to the challenge<br />

of taking her on.”<br />

New challenge for St Thomas footballers<br />

WESTERN NEWS<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THE ST Thomas of Canterbury<br />

College football team has<br />

sounded a warning to their<br />

rivals ahead of the nationals<br />

in Christchurch this week<br />

by claiming the Canterbury<br />

secondary schools title 2-1 over<br />

Burnside.<br />

St Thomas’ finished fourth<br />

at the nationals last year after<br />

losing the Canterbury final to St<br />

Andrew’s College on penalties<br />

and the team is eager to push for<br />

more success this week.<br />

The nationals are being held at<br />

Avonhead Park and the Christchurch<br />

Football Centre.<br />

St Andrew’s , Cashmere High<br />

School, Lincoln High School,<br />

Christchurch Boys’ High School<br />

and Burnside will also take part<br />

in the tournament.<br />

St Thomas’ co-coach Jacob Allen<br />

said he was thrilled how his<br />

team bounced-back from conceding<br />

a goal in the first two minutes<br />

of the final, last Wednesday night<br />

to claim victory.<br />

“The boys didn’t want to have<br />

the same feeling they had last<br />

year so the fought hard to get<br />

back into the game after the early<br />

set-back.”<br />

Allen said they would love to<br />

repeat their fourth place at nationals<br />

but accepted making the<br />

quarter-finals would be a good<br />

start.<br />

“It’s tournament football so if<br />

we can make the top eight and<br />

then right our luck from there<br />

that’d be a good start,” he said.<br />

“We only lost four Year 13s<br />

from last year so we still have a<br />

good core of players so if we get<br />

a bit of luck like we did last year<br />

then we should go well.”<br />

Hamilton Boys’ High School<br />

are defending champions.<br />

SPORTS<br />

CELEBRATIONS: St Thomas’ claimed the Canterbury premier secondary school football title after<br />

The game was closer than the<br />

10-point margin suggested, with<br />

Lincoln staying within striking<br />

distance for much of the first<br />

three-quarters.<br />

Hornby were able to hold<br />

their nerve in the closing minutes<br />

to end their campaign as champions.<br />

Principal Robin Sutton said the<br />

school was proud of their<br />

achievement.<br />

benefits of the ease of living and it allows<br />

them greater freedom and more social<br />

interaction. This means that it’s really<br />

Device to prevent<br />

snoring<br />

Why put up with broken sleep, when<br />

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance<br />

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and<br />

dry and raw throats.<br />

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth<br />

for comfort, and a follow up service is<br />

provided.<br />

Denise Lim has been involved with<br />

Snores for 22 years<br />

and has had a 98%<br />

success rate with<br />

people using the<br />

appliance. Snoring<br />

can be a health<br />

hazard, causing<br />

sleep apnoea, where<br />

the person actually<br />

stops breathing for<br />

short periods.<br />

It can cause<br />

short-term memory<br />

loss, tiredness and<br />

contribute to high<br />

blood pressure.<br />

The Snorex<br />

device does not feel<br />

restrictive, is noninvasive<br />

and carries<br />

a money-back guarantee.<br />

Many people are referred by ear, nose<br />

and throat specialists, however, anyone<br />

can phone for an appointment.<br />

Knights Stream School<br />

Mingimingi Hautoa<br />

Enrolment Zone<br />

To deal with a situation where the school has, or is likely to have, more applicants<br />

for enrolment than there are places available at the school, the board of Knights<br />

Stream School | Mingimingi Hautoa has adopted an enrolment scheme, which has<br />

been approved by the Secretary for Education. Under this scheme, first priority<br />

on enrolment places will be given to preference students for whom the school is<br />

reasonably convenient. A description of how “reasonably convenient” is defined<br />

is contained in the scheme. The enrolment scheme may be viewed at the school<br />

office and on our school website: www.knightsstream.school.nz. The board has<br />

determined that no out of zone places are available for enrolments next year.<br />

The board invites applications from in zone parents/caregivers who wish to enrol<br />

their children at Knights Stream School | Mingimingi Hautoa for 2019.<br />

Auction: Thursday, 20 <strong>September</strong> <strong>2018</strong> Unless Sold Prior<br />

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 toilets | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 1 off-street park | Listing #SM0066<br />

Overlooking the expanse of<br />

McCormacks Bay Reserve and close to the<br />

coastline, this four-bedroom home offers<br />

a tantalising combination of location,<br />

lifestyle, comfort and convenience.<br />

Designed with function and flexibility<br />

in mind the floor plan hosts an open<br />

plan living area and an adjoining formal<br />

lounge, with the latter not only offering an<br />

alternative retreat, but it can also be opened<br />

to create one expansive entertaining space.<br />

However, if your inclination is to unwind<br />

outdoors, then there is an opening off<br />

the dining area which extends out to the<br />

courtyard and garden.<br />

Contributing further appeal and<br />

convenience to this already attractive<br />

home, buyers have the option to negotiate<br />

and purchase the property fully furnished<br />

which would allow you to quite literally<br />

move in and enjoy.<br />

Four double bedrooms include a master<br />

with a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and<br />

French doors that extend out to your own<br />

private balcony. One bedroom is presently<br />

used as an office allowing you to work<br />

from home.<br />

Benefiting from a north-facing aspect<br />

that attracts abundant sunlight, the<br />

interior enjoys the warmth and comfort<br />

that’s offered by a gas fire and a heat pump<br />

which guarantees a comfortable climate<br />

throughout the year.<br />

Situated over the road from the reserve<br />

and a short drive from the vast selection of<br />

cafes, restaurants, bars and shops in both<br />

Redcliffs and Ferrymead. This property<br />

is zoned for Redcliffs School and has easy<br />

access to the sea, coastal pathway and<br />

cycle tracks. Walk along to the Saturdays<br />

farmers market and enjoy the lifestyle on<br />

offer here.<br />

Our owner has purchased in Australia<br />

and is serious about selling. Don’t be slow,<br />

it’s got to go!<br />
