Silver Ferns east side roots

• By Jacob Page

NEW SILVER Ferns assistant

coach Debbie Fuller credits

her upbringing in North New

Brighton as a fortunate place to

start her career.

The 47-year-old grew up in

North New Brighton and said

her first memory of netball

came watching her mother,

Claire Matoe, play at the Hagley

Park netball courts, play for

Canterbury and trial for the

Silver Ferns.

“I just remember how lucky I

was to grow up there,” she said.

“The beach was our haven,

I remember Thomson Park

and the skate park and New

Brighton Mall was humming on

a Saturday.

Eastgate

bus hub

one step

closer

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

EASTGATE MALL may have

the third busiest bus interchange

in the city, but it is still without

an integrated transport hub.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board has supported a

recommendation from

the Linwood Eastgate Area

Integrated Transport Study to

have a bus hub installed outside

the centre.

Further action recommended

in the report included

investigating a signalised

crossing on Buckleys Rd

across from Eastgate Mall and

providing cycle parking facilities

outside the centre.

But the board wants to

understand how Environment

Canterbury’s recent changes to

bus routes as part of its Long

Term Plan will affect the area

before it goes ahead with the

plan. It has also requested a city

council and community board

joint seminar with ECan on the

Canterbury Regional Public

Transport Plan.

The transport plan, which

shapes the future of the bus services

in the city, is not expected

to be known until March.

WE’VE GOT a profile on that somewhat

controversial figure in David East (pages

6-7).

It ran in The Star (the big boy of our

newspaper stable) but it would have

been remiss not to also publish it in East’s

local paper.

City councillors and other politicians are often targets for the

media. In many cases it is totally justified.

I’m often heard around the office wondering why some public

figures won’t put their proverbials on the line when it comes to

significant community issues.

So it was refreshing when East and others put their heads out

of the trench over the District Plan matter that landed them in

hot water.

But it’s worked. There will be an independent inquiry over the

matter.

Community spirit triumphs

• By Sophie Cornish and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

ACTION TAKEN to get a

missing clause back into the

city’s District Plan has been

applauded by the Southshore

Residents’ Association.

The city council

unanimously

voted and requested

urgency

on the matter

so that the

city’s District

Plan could be

David East

amended last

Thursday.

Councillor

David East landed himself in

hot water when he alleged the

omission of a discretionary rule

in the city council’s High Flood

Hazard Management Area

policy was against the intentions

of the replacement District Plan

independent hearing’s panel.

Without the discretionary

rule known as the enable clause

residents are finding it almost

impossible to build or extend

their properties within the High

Flood Hazard Management

Area,

Cr East and Burwood-Coastal

Community Board members

Tim Sintes and Kim Money

faced council disciplinary action

over their outspoken views.

A meeting with council chiefs

on Thursday to discuss the matter

was adjourned. Their stand,

though, led to huge support from

people in the eastern suburbs.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel who was

one of the instigators of the disciplinary

proceedings, has now

led an independent inquiry into

the omission of the discretionary

rule.

Southshore Residents’

Association chairwoman Lynda

Burdekin said the independent

inquiry was welcomed.

“It is not something that is

going to happen overnight. We

will be watching the process

with interest and hoping the

Government and city council get

something done promptly,” she

said.

Last Tuesday more than 300

people attended a public meeting

at the New Brighton Club.

They decided to support Cr

East, Mr Sintes’ and Ms Money’s

stand.

A motion passed at the meeting

fully supported their actions

and also stated the meeting

strongly objected to the code of

conduct complaints and request

they be withdrawn.

PROGRESS:

The Southshore

Residents

Association is

pleased a notice of

motion has been

made by the city

council to have a

missing clause in

the city’s district

plan put back in.

It also called for the

Christchurch Coastal

Residents’ United group to

write on its behalf jointly, to

the Prime Minister Jacinda

Ardern, Minister of Local

Government Nanaia Mahuta

and Minister of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods.

The letter would advise that

they fully support the efforts of

the elected members and request

an independent inquiry and

subsequent reinstatement on the

relevant clause.

Red zone barrier changes for Burwood

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ROAD BARRIERS making it

difficult to access Donnell Sports

Park in Burwood and causing

anti social behaviour issues in the

red zone will be changed.

The city council will take away

road barriers on Stour Drive and

Brooker Ave to make it easier for

the public to get to the park.

It will mean

people will be

able to travel

from New

Brighton Rd,

down Stour

Drive to Brooker

Glenn

Livingstone

Ave to get to

the park, as

well as from

Kingsbridge

Drive through to Brooker Ave.

But full barriers will be placed

at Prior Close, Istana Place,

Azure Place and Dunair Drive at

the Brooker Ave end.

This will be to stop illegal

rubbish dumping and boy racers

from destroying vegetation in

the red zone.

It was expected the barriers

would begin to be changed from

yesterday.

It comes after the Coastal­

Burwood Community Board,

the Burwood East Residents’

Association and Land

BLOCK: Extended road barriers, like the one above, are being removed in streets around

Burwood to allow better access to Donnell Sports Park.

Information New Zealand met

recently to discuss ongoing

issues with the red zone barriers.

Pegasus Post reported in May

that BERA sent a letter to the

community board calling for

the placement of barriers to be

reviewed as a result of boy racers

doing burnouts in the red zone.

BERA committee member Sue

Roper said it was a productive

meeting and the group is pleased

because the changes it agreed on

will be going through.

“We are excited about the fact

people will now be able to have

freer access to Donnell Sports

Park especially now it is going to

be upgraded and fixed up,” she

said.

Funding of $600,000 has been

secured in the city council’s

Long Term Plan to upgrade the

park.

It was also agreed at the

meeting if further rubbish

dumping and illegal use of cars

on the street after dark were to

continue, the city council and

community board would review

the barriers again.

City councillor Glenn

Livingstone said it has been a

great collaborative effort because

it means the community can

take pride in the park.

He said due to the roads

opening in the area, it may mean

the city council will need to

consider fixing Brooker Ave in

the future.

Cr Livingstone said he is

considering promoting the idea

through the community board.

Controversial councillor’s

Coastal Ward city

councillor David East

landed himself in hot

water when he held

a press conference

calling for an

independent inquiry

into an erased clause in

the city’s District Plan.

He speaks to reporter

Sophie Cornish about

his life outside of local

politics

Where did your involvement

in the east all begin?

I am a fourth-generation

resident of the area. I was born

in the Burwood area, where my

parents farmed in horticulture.

When I got married, I moved

back into the area, so I have been

essentially back since 1980. But as

I said, my parents, grandparents

and great-grandparents on both

sides of the family all lived in the

North Beach or New Brighton

area. I live in North Beach now.

Where did you grow up?

I started at Burwood School,

then my father brought land on

Marshland Rd and farmed there.

So I grew up in a little place

called Ouruhia, at the top end of

Marshland Rd. I went to school

there, then went to Shirley Boys’

High School and Canterbury

University. I graduated with a

Bachelor of Science in geography

and geology.

I know you are a life member

of Surf Life Saving New

Zealand, when did you become

involved in that?

I have been a member of the

North Beach Surf Life Saving

Club since 1968. In fact, I

became a life member of North

Beach in 2000, a life member of

Canterbury in 2006 and New

Zealand in 2011. In a couple

of weeks time I am due to

receive a 50 year badge for my

MAKING WAVES: David East and the beach have been constant companions over the years.

involvement in surf lifesaving in

New Zealand. I tick over 50 years

this year.

What was your favourite

thing about surf lifesaving when

you were younger, were you a

strong swimmer?

Well, I was what I would call

a very average competitor. I was

always a reasonably strong swimmer.

But my involvement actually

gradually swung to the administration

side of things. I held most

positions on the committee at

North Beach, I ended up being

the club captain and president.

I have been president of the

Canterbury district and have had

quite a long involvement nationally

with a few committees. I’ve

been judging at the national

championships, I think this upcoming

championships will be

my 31st consecutive event that I

have judged nationally. I’ve been

to every surf lifesaving champs

since 1974, bar one. I missed the

1980 one when my daughter was

born.

What is your favourite thing

about it, do you like being on

the beach?

I love the beach, I love the

coastline. I’ve got so many

friends and associates in the

movement. Even going to a

national championship, it’s

as much catching up with old

friends as it is doing the judging.

Do you have any memorable

stories from your time

competing?

Yes, several. But most couldn’t

be printed. We had a lot of fun

and there have been a few hi-jinx,

but all good-natured.

What led you to start surf

lifesaving?

I was 16 and my family and

friends did it. My aunts and

uncles and to a degree my father,

were all members of the North

Beach club previously. There is

quite a significant family connection,

going way back. My

grandfather, aunts and uncles,

my sons, daughter and I, and

now my grandchildren, have an

association with the club.

What other things like this

are you involved with other

than surf lifesaving?

For a long period I was

involved with rugby when both

my sons were playing, they

played for the Shirley club. I

coached junior rugby for quite

a number of years, I was the

junior club captain there and

ended up being the chairman of

the board at Shirley rugby and

eventually president of the club. I

still maintain a very keen interest

in rugby for the club, provincial

and national levels. I went to the

Canterbury v Manawatu game

just recently.

What led you into local

government?

I think it’s ultimately

something that my family

have been involved with. My

parents, Colin and June, were

very community-minded. My

father was on a number of

boards around the country in

a horticultural context. He was

deeply involved in rotary, the

local Federated Farmers and all

sorts of things there. I am very

grateful for the way I was raised

by my parents. The sense of

community involvement

that was instilled in me and

giving back was something

that I have always carried on

with and am eternally grateful

to them for. Unfortunately,

neither of them are here, but I

am sure they would be totally

supportive and proud of where I

have got to.

So was the reason you

wanted to get involved in local

politics because of the family

connection?

Yes, that and I ended up on

the board of trustees at my

children’s school and eventually

became the chair of that. I

have naturally taken interest

in my community and what is

happening in the area and have

wanted to offer any help I can

to see the local community

flourish.

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

lifelong passion for the east

Is that what you believe is the

best thing about local politics?

Yes, I do get a lot of personal

sort of satisfaction of seeing

improvements in my local area. I

have always sort of believed that

if you have a vibrant community

with a lot of facilities, it looks

good, it feels good, people will be

responsive in the way they look

after the community and are

proud of where they live. That’s

the sort of philosophy I have tried

to work with.

Do you think there is a

different sense of community in

the Coastal Ward?

Yes, I have never come across a

community that is so connected

and interested in what happens

around them. The number

of residents’ associations and

community groups in my ward

is phenomenal. Compared

to some other parts of the

city, we would have far more

of these community groups.

You only have to look at the

reaction to some proposals for

the eastern suburbs and the

number of people who have

signed petitions, submissions

and things to council. In fact,

I’d go as far to say in 2015, the

volume of submissions received

from this side of town was quite

instrumental in council, in

changing their mind on aspects

of the Annual Plan that year.

What are some less desirable

aspects of local politics?

I’d say the worst thing is the

time and processes you have to

go through. Council never moves

very fast and while we can all see

the benefits of a particular project,

actually getting there is quite

complex and time-consuming.

People that have got into local

affairs have been burnt-out

because they haven’t been able

to work their way through some

of these processes. I have learnt

my way around council a bit and

have been able to promote things

POWER BROKERS: David East speaking to fellow city councillors Anne Galloway and Jamie

Gough at last week’s council meeting.

and get things on a priority list.

Whereas some people may get

elected to a community board

or council and think they are

going to come in with a big stick

and their ideas and notions will

be acted fairly quickly, when in

fact that is not the case. There is a

process, the process is not great,

but it is what it is and you just

have to work your way through

the system with some of these

projects. As you are well aware

sometimes you have to step out

of the square, like I am doing at

the moment, to progress things

that are of immense concern to

the community and are not being

acted on quickly or fairly.

What are some of the most

challenging things you have

faced in this role?

I have always held the notion

that New Brighton and the

eastern suburbs have been an

under-funded, under-appreciated

asset for the city. It’s taken a long

time to get some projects off the

ground. I am eternally grateful

that we now have a great playground

in New Brighton and

QE II has been rebuilt. Although

we have ongoing work there,

looking at whether the great

facility is going to be big enough

for the needs of this side of

town. We are working very well

through the consenting process

for the hot pools which is a project

first mooted way back in the

1880s.

You have not strayed away

from things that may be

controversial like the debate

last year about donating

director’s fees to charity, did you

face much fall-out from that?

I was pretty principle on

that matter. In fact, I followed

council’s directive to the letter

of the law, the ruling was that

anyone who had directorships

that involved Christchurch City

Holdings Ltd, the fees would be

directed to the Mayor’s Welfare

Fund. I was a director of Canterbury

Development Corporation

and my fees went to that fund.

But, at the same time, I was a director

of Transwaste Canterbury

who was not a member CCHL.

I felt I was quite entitled. While

other councillors would argue

no, but in an interpretation of

council’s ruling of the matter, I

kept the fees and I would be quite

happy to publicly say that if you

do that sort of work you should

be remunerated for it. There

are huge responsibilities being

a director and I think that the

position council takes is wrong, I

would take the same stand again.

In the long term, I would hope

that the attitudes to this practice

are better reflected in the future.

Can you tell me something

about the life of a city councillor

that people might not know?

It is quite a demanding sort of

lifestyle and it can be easy as you

want and as complex as you want.

I choose to attend quite a number

of local community events, local

committees and things so

that I hope I am up to the play

with what is happening in my

community. I don’t necessarily

have to do that, I could be just

attending council meetings and

community board meetings and

not a lot more. From a relationship

sort of view I am out at night

sometimes three to five nights

a week, so that has an impact. I

have to say, I exceedingly grateful

that my partner Lynn is very supportive

of what I do, even though

at times it’s not the greatest thing

in a normal relationship.

Is Lynn involved in local

government?

She is involved in a number of

community and social enterprise

activities. She is very supportive

and takes an interest in a number

of community groups.

Can you tell me about your

children?

I have a daughter and two sons.

Well, I had four children. My second

daughter died at eight weeks,

a long time ago. My daughter is

Sarah and sons Jamie and Bid.

Do they want to get into local

politics?

No, not at this stage. They may

do, certainly I am not encouraging

them too, it’s something

they need to assess and get into

themselves, rather than me

leading them towards it. My son

Jamie was club captain at the

surf club for a long time and in

recent months, he has become

the president.

Grab your girlfriends, mum or daughters

and come have a great day out!

Silver Ferns

assistant

coach’s east

side roots

•From page 1

She retired from international

play following the 1996 world

championships, but played

provincially until 2002 before

coaching became her focus.

Fuller started coaching in

Wellington and Bay of Plenty. Her

first notable job was as defensive

coach of the Northern Mystics

during the ANZ Championship in

2009 under head coach Te Aroha

Keenan.

She was promoted to assistant

the next year before cementing

the head coaching job in 2011.

The Mystics finished second

during her first season in charge,

and third in 2012. Fuller took

2013 off due to family commitments,

before returning to the

helm and continuing until 2016.

Fuller said it was emotional

when she was welcomed into the

Silver Ferns group. “The players

did a Mihi Whakatau to welcome

the new coaching staff and I still

get emotional thinking about it.

“I never thought when I started

coaching it would lead to this but

I love seeing players grow and

I know this group of players is

eager to do well,” she said.

•From page 1

“We need to know what the

bus routes are before we make

a decision on what the public

transport

services should

be and we

can’t do that

until a regional

transport plan

is finished,”

Linwood Ward

city councillor

Yani

Johanson

Yani Johanson

said.

But he said he

was supportive

of an integrated plan.

Cr Johanson said it would be

“bizarre” for the city council

to invest in public transport

infrastructure when ECan will

discontinue bus routes 145 and

535 travelling to Eastgate next

month. Instead a shopper service,

the 155, will be introduced

in the south-east of the city,

running between Lyttelton and

Eastgate via Ferrymead.

The bus stops in front of

Eastgate cater up to 30 buses

per hour and board up to 1500

passengers per day.

The usage of buses in the area

rivals Northlands Shopping Centre

and is only outdone by the

central city Bus Interchange and

Westfield Riccarton hub.

On average 84 buses use the

bus interchange per hour, 67 at

Westfield Riccarton and 45 at

Northlands Shopping Centre.

The average week day boarding

of passengers at the Bus

Interchange is 7130, Westfield

Riccarton 3060 and Northlands

is 1820.

A city council staff report said

it is widely acknowledged that

passenger facilities at Eastgate

are inadequate and in need of

improvement.

But the city council’s Long

Term Plan has no provision for a

transport hub or any other projects

suggested in the study.

City council staff believe

funding from the Aldwins Rd,

Buckleys Rd and Linwood Ave

intersection safety project could

be used for the upgrade of the

loss to a place of hope.

Fast forward to a year since

opening and Te Kura Tawhito

has become a bustling health,

The site now sees over 700

visitors per month.

We have more than 20 groups

abuzz with people and energy.

It’s all about people!

We receive weekly inquiries

from community organisations,

wanting to occupy a space.

In the last month we have

opened the art room, a space set

up specifically for people to be

able to drop in and offer their

classes.

Get in touch with co-ordinator

Sue Davidson, if you are keen.

We at Renew Brighton are

ready to expand what we can

offer at Te Kura Tawhito.

However, we’re waiting to hear

if the plans are to sell the site on

the open market, or whether we

can remain.

There is so much evidence on

how creativity positively impacts

our health and well-being and

we hope to be able to continue to

offer this for our community.

In an ideal world, we hope

to soon be sitting around a

large table talking to likely

stakeholders about the future of

the old Central New Brighton

School site – Te Kura Tawhito.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

PEGASUS POST

Anxiety and breathing

– are they related?

When good breathing goes bad

Have you experienced any of these

breathing difficulty symptoms?

• Disturbed sleep

• Erratic heartbeats*

• Feeling anxious and uptight

• Upset gut/nausea

• Chest pains*

• Shattered confidence

• Tired all the time

• Achy muscles and joints

• Dizzy spells* or feeling spaced out

• Irritability or hypervigilance

• Frequent yawning and sighing

• Breathing discomfort*

• Pins and needles

• Feelings of ‘air hunger’

*Check with your doctor if you experience

these symptoms.

These questions are asked on

the website www.BradCliff.com.

BradCliff was started by North Island

physiotherapists Dinah Bradley and

Tania Cliffton Smith, who specialise in

hyperventilation and anxiety treatment.

Their website notes one in 10 people

experience some form of breathing pattern

disorder or chronic over breathing at some

time in their lives, resulting in a range

of disturbing or frightening symptoms

puzzling to you and your doctor.

You feel unwell because of overbreathing,

and overbreathing makes you feel unwell.

A vicious cycle is established, which is a

major stress all by itself. This is experienced

currently by many Cantabrians, says Ietje

van Stolk of Physical Sense Gym & Physio.

As she explains, it is normal to breathe fast

and in the upper chest when we are in danger

and fight or flight is needed. We know all

about that here, due to the earthquakes.

Normally, once the danger is gone, our

breathing should restore itself within a

couple of days. We would then be using the

diaphragm for our normal nonstressed

breathing. We have been having a hard

time restoring our breathing pattern

here in Canterbury because every time

our body tried to achieve that, the next

aftershock came rolling in. Even though the

aftershocks have significantly diminished,

some people’s fight or flight mode

breathing has become chronic, or habitual,

Ietje says. And, as she points out, using the

wrong muscles for breathing means these

overworked muscles cause headaches, neck

pain and jaw pain.

With fast upper chest breathing, sighing

and yawning, the resulting disturbance

of our oxygen and carbon dioxide levels

can give us the feeling we are not able to

control our own body. One moment you

are feeling fine, next moment your chest

feels tight, you feel out of breath, your

heart beats erratically and you may even

experience dizziness and/or tingling.

Very scary if you do not understand what

is happening. No wonder this causes

anxiety. Not being the boss over our own

body makes us anxious, anxiety feeds the

faulty breathing pattern, and so it goes on.

The BradCliff physiotherapists have

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

Physical Sense is part of that network.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

Linwood

College

PERSONALISED

PATHWAYS

TO SUCCESS

A NEW SCHOOL IS COMING

We are making it yours

Linwood College is undergoing some major changes. During this time a number of things will be happening as part of this transition into our new school buildings so we want to let

you know about our plans and processes.

• While our school is being rebuilt, Linwood College will temporarily relocate to the existing Avonside Girls' High School site.

• We are organising a farewell celebration for current and ex students of Linwood College to farewell the current buildings.

• Staff are focusing on teaching and learning that allows for students to collaborate, supports engagement and meets the individual needs of our current and future students -

personalised learning.

REBUILD INFORMATION

What’s been happening so far?

Workshops around the physical buildings have been occurring. These have included

staff from each learning area, Architectus - our architects, Mana Whenua and the

Linwood College rebuild team. Your community consultation feedback has fed into the

design of the physical teaching spaces and how the buildings will be positioned on

the physical site. Within our design we have ensured that the teaching spaces are for

30 students maximum with the ability to open up to a teaching space for 60 students

if and when appropriate. We also have smaller spaces for students to work. We want

to be able to encourage collaboration but ensure students are not lost in big open

spaces. High level design meetings occur fortnightly. These meetings look at logistics:

finances, structural and engineering considerations, geotechnical considerations, gas,

water, heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting. The Project Steering Group meets on a

monthly basis. This is when the Ministry of Education and the Linwood College Board

meet, making sure that what is being planned for is actually what the school and the

community are wanting.

Where we are now...

We now have a final site plan completed, and the final outside cladding of the new

buildings has been decided. We are coming to the end of the design phase of the

internal structures, and the individual classroom teaching spaces within the Learning

Hubs and the Innovation and Creativity buildings. A transition manager has been

appointed to oversee the shift to the Avonside Girls’ current site.

Where to next?

We are now looking at developing the landscaping designs that will surround the

buildings. We will be starting to look at internal fixtures and fittings, including flooring,

furniture and fabric finishes within the learning spaces. IT consultation is occurring to

plan the wireless connectivity within the buildings. There is planning about the closure

of the current Linwood College buildings including the Whare and the number of

significant memorials on site.

SAYING GOODBYE TO THE OLD LINWOOD COLLEGE BUILDINGS

As part of preparing for the demolition and complete rebuild of Linwood College, we are

organising a farewell celebration weekend. This will be over the weekend of April 5 & 6

2019. There will be a formal ticketed event on the Friday evening for past students and

teachers followed on the Saturday with a day of farewell open to all current and past

students and staff, and the wider community who would like to join us. This will also

include the closing of the Whare and acknowledging the other significant memorials

around Linwood College. We are remembering and celebrating the rich history that has

occurred in these buildings over the years.

Linda Rutland is chairing the organising committee for this event and is now

taking pre-registrations for the ticketed evening on registration@linwoodcollege.

school.nz. Queries to Linda 021 2398946 or Ken Bye 027 748 0697.

TEACHING AND LEARNING

At Linwood College we are committed to providing personalised pathways for students

to succeed. We are working on developing teaching and learning practices that develop

collaboration between both teachers and students. For us, this doesn’t mean having

everybody in an open space trying to work, but rather more structured environments

where both students and teachers can be successful. For example, at the moment our

year 10 and year 12 Physical Education classes work in partnership with the teachers

planning together.

AVONSIDE GIRLS’ HIGH SITE TRANSITION

WHY DO WE NEED TO RELOCATE?

By relocating for the period of the rebuild, the rebuild will occur faster as the

construction team will not have to work around us. Our students will not have to

do their learning in a building site. Because the timeframe will be shorter, Linwood

College can use the money saved to reinvest into the new school buildings.

WHEN WILL IT HAppEN?

Linwood College will be relocating to the old Avonside Girls’ High School site once

AGHS have moved to their new school on the QE2 site. This will be occurring

sometime in term 2 2019. A transition manager has been allocated by the Ministry

of Education to facilitate this shift, and to ensure that this does not disrupt the day

to day running of the school over this period.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE STUDENTS?

It means that our Linwood College staff and students won't have to continue

learning in a construction site. It means that once we have relocated, there will be

little to no disruption until we shift back. Our students will still be able to participate

in sport, major productions and all the other opportunities that Linwood College

currently offers.

CAN I ENROL MY CHILD AT LINWOOD COLLEGE DURING THIS TIME?

Yes you most certainly can. Just contact our Linwood College office on

(03) 9802100 or email office@linwoodcollege.school.nz for enrolment forms and to

arrange an enrolment interview. We will continue to warmly welcome new students

during this transition time.

HOW WILL I GET THERE?

AGHS is only 2.2 kms away from the original Linwood College site. The Ministry

of Education will supply buses from the original Aldwins Road Linwood site to the

Avonside site for the duration of the rebuild. This will be a free service, and will

leave LC to get to Avonside by the start of school, and will leave Avonside at the

end of the day to return to Linwood.

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 “microstrokes”

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.

with this objective providing support

for local schools and groups.

Club and affiliate members gain

access to the many great facilities on

offer. There's a MEMBER'S BAR with

discounted bar prices, bistro (open

Saturday), bar menu, TAB, gaming

machines, big screen SKY sport, pool

tables; SPORTING SECTIONS that

compete locally and nationally; LIVE

ENTERTAINMENT; and to get you

home safe and sound... the Club

Shuttle (operates Thursday, Friday and

Saturday evenings).

Anyone can become a member of

the SAS Club and potential new

members are welcome to call in and

check out the great facilities and

advantages of joining your local club.

For more information, go to

www.sasclub.co.nz, visit them on

facebook, call in at 269 Hills Rd, or

phone them on 385 1632.
