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.

“A local team for local people”

“Mum still lives in South New

Brighton and we love visiting her

and having a look around.”

Fuller went to North New

Brighton School where she first

started playing netball.

When she went to Aranui

High School she played for the

New Brighton club.

We were never the glamorous

club but always competed well

against the top clubs like Hearts

and St Nicks.”

In the late 1980s, she transferred

to Hearts and was noticed

for representative teams.

Fuller, a defender, cracked the

Canterbury team and made her

debut for New Zealand against

Jamaica in 1994. She played eight

tests between 1994 and 1996.

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.

HAT’S OFF to Keri and Dave Glassenbury

for their great initiative in Halswell (see

page 8).

They have set up the Sharing Shack and

as the name says it’s all about sharing.

The shack is a food shelf, where people can donate food and

for those who need it, they can take it.

“The whole idea is, if there is anybody out there struggling

in any way, you don’t have to put a thing in there, just take the

food,” Keri told reporter Anan Zaki.

Keri has been a community helper in Halswell for a couple of

years and the latest project looks like a winner.

The shack is outside the community hub. So if you have food

to donate to others in need that’s the place to go.

And if you’re struggling to feed the kids, drop by. Just leave

some for others in the same boat.

Patrol volunteers needed

• By Matt Salmons

MORE COMMUNITY patrols

maybe seen driving along

Linwood Ave.

But more volunteers are

needed.

Sumner to City Community

Patrol chairman Allan Bain

said the group

managed one

patrol most

days, but he

wanted two

patrols, every

day.

“The more

Franco Lovrich

we are out

there, the less

crime will

happen,” Mr Bain said.

“We’re a deterrent.”

The group covered “a fair

chunk of area” between Linwood,

Lyttelton and Sumner

and reported incidents of tagging,

suspicious behaviour,

property damage or littering to

police.

Mr Bain said the latest city

council statistics showed the

areas covered by the patrols,

such as Linwood Ave, had some

of the “lowest levels of graffiti in

Christchurch.”

As volunteers, maintenance

on the group’s vehicles was

funded through donations and

fundraising efforts. Fuel was

provided by police.

Lyttelton Police Sergeant

Franco Lovrich said the patrols

were getting “a bit stretched”

with their numbers.

“They’re out there, reporting,

keeping the community safe by

notifying police of any suspicious

behaviours.

“They’re certainly a value

to the community,” Sergeant

Lovrich said.

Mr Bain said most of his 45

volunteers were retired and

could only commit to four hours

a month.

“We’d really need to have

some younger people and people

willing to do more hours.

“Ideally we’d really need

around 55 [people].”

While the volunteer patrol

had two vehicles, it had not yet

had them patrolling simultaneously.

“We would really like someone

to do nights for us. Saturday

vehicles. ​

nights can be almost impossible.”

Mr Bain said members

normally did not leave the

vehicle on patrol so only needed

“good eyes and the ability to

walk.”

“We’re purely moving police

signs. If you see a community

patrol car, you probably don’t

want to commit a crime right?

“You’re doing something for

the community, you’re helping

the community. That’s the

bottom line,” Mr Bain said.

Thrilling ride in Sumner rescue boat

Sumner resident Christine

Toner recently joined

the Sumner Lifeboat

Institution to help with

fundraising. She shared

the experience of her

maiden voyage with

Southern View

I HAD never been out on the

ocean in a small boat before.

I had sailed a tiny yacht on

the estuary, and travelled on a

big ship across the Pacific and

Atlantic to England on my 1970s

OE, but I had never been in big

swells with the top of the sea way

above my head.

Climbing on board Blue Arrow

Rescue, the 12.5m Sumner Lifeboat,

was an easy walk up some

steps inside the Lifeboat Station,

onto the deck and into the capacious,

modern cabin.

I put on the life jacket and

clambered up on to the high seat.

Once settled on my perch I was

surprised to have to do up my

seat belt and adjust a dial to my

body weight. Later on I appreciated

how the clever spring system

used that intimate knowledge to

minimise bounce.

Skipper Heather McDonald

carried out an impressive array

of pre-launch checks and crew

MAIDEN VOYAGE: Christine Toner said her maiden voyage with the Sumner Lifeboat crew was a thrilling adventure.

briefings, and eventually we were

winched backwards down the

concrete ramp into shallow water.

As soon as we were afloat, we

were surrounded by surfers. Undaunted,

Heather manoeuvred

Blue Arrow Rescue (affectionately

known as BAR as in Bee Ay Agh)

around the humans and out into

Scarborough Bay.

Beyond the white caps, the

waves were huge – to me, anyway.

No one else seemed to be

concerned as we climbed up, up

and up then suddenly lurched

over the top and smacked down

into the void beyond. I quickly

understood the value of the seat

belt and seat spring arrangement.

Someone spotted a mussel

buoy, adrift from a mussel farm

in Pigeon Bay.

Blue Arrow Rescue came

up alongside the buoy and the

trainee crew members adroitly

hauled it on board. We roared

off to take it home. Out there the

sea was choppy but much less of

a roller coaster, and we enjoyed

stunning views of a freighter at

the Lyttelton Heads, a yacht, a

tiny runabout, and the gigantic

Whitewash Head cliffs.

What a thrill it was. And

better still, not even a hint of

seasickness. Just excitement and

awe for the powerful jet engines

and strong boat body that

propelled us at 25 knots and still

had plenty left for an emergency.

Ideas sought for failed village land

• By Matt Salmons

HEATHCOTE residents are

about to have their say on what

the failed Māori Village land at

Ferrymead Park can be used for.

City council staff will seek

views from the community this

month on what to do with the

land, which was mooted last

year as an alternative site for a

Lyttelton dog park.

Options proposed for the

former Māori Village tourist

attraction at Ferrymead Park

included a dog park, bike tracks

and horse trails.

It had been suggested as the

possible location for a dog park

last year after a suitable site in

Lyttelton couldn’t be found.

City council manager community

parks Al Hardy said the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board had asked

staff to investigate uses for the

land in December last year.

“Staff are currently conducting

a site analysis and will be

seeking ideas and community

views shortly, prior to carrying

out formal consultation for the

site,” Mr Hardy said.

He said staff would gather

ideas from the community

through pre-engagement at the

end of the month.

“Pre-engagement involves a

project flyer being sent to adjacent

neighbours, absentee owners

and key stakeholders. This

will increase awareness of the

project and inform people where

they can seek more information

or make a submission.”

Mr Hardy said information

would be available on the Have

Your Say website.

A draft landscape plan would

be prepared around November,

Mr Hardy said, with further

public consultation on the plan

early next year.

He expected the plan could go

back to the community board

for approval mid-2019.

Sparks Rd

speed likely

to be reduced

• By Julia Evans

THE SPEED limit on busy Sparks

Rd is likely to be cut from 80km/h

from 60km/h.

The city council has proposed

the drop between between

Hendersons Rd and Milns Rd.

The road connects Halswell,

Westmorland and Hoon Hay.

A city council report said the

changes are necessary as a result

of increased activity and to prepare

for future developments.

“The current 80km/h speed

limit is no longer suitable and the

city council is proposing to reduce

the speed limit to 60km/h.”

The drop would also affect part

of Hendersons Rd as it approaches

the Sparks Rd roundabout from

Halswell Rd. The new speed limit

would be in place from November.

It is part of wider changes to

the area for the Quarryman’s

Trail cycleway, including a shared

path on Sparks Rd which would

connect to developments in the

Hendersons Basin and the Eastman

Possible sites for seafarers’ centre

• By Matt Salmons

COMMITMENTS to continued

funding and finding a new

location have come from a

public meeting about the future

of the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre.

More than 40 Lyttelton

residents joined representatives

from the Seafarers Centre,

Seafarers’ Welfare Board for

New Zealand, city council and

community boards for the

meeting on September 9.

Welfare Board chairman

John McLister said the meeting

highlighted aspirations the town

had for the welcome they could

provide to seafarers.

“No one in Lyttelton wants to

see seafarers standing on a street

corner. They just want a functioning

seafarers’ centre.”

Seafarers arriving in Lyttelton

used the Norwich Quay centre

to relax and contact families.

But funding and volunteer constraints

meant the centre could

only open five nights a week and

accommodate 18 people.

Its lease on the current site

would expire in 2021.

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula Community Board

member Andrew Turner said

there was also “concern about

how the issue will be exacerbated”

by the return of the cruise

ships in 2020.

“We don’t want to find them

out of a home or ill-equipped to

meet the demand from increasing

numbers of arriving seafarers,”

Cr Turner said.

The city council had no legal

responsibility towards seafarers

welfare, Cr Turner said, but it

was “a question of moral responsibility.”

“The people of Lyttelton made

it very clear that they want us

to provide a quality welcome to

all visitors to the port, and that

includes seafarers.”

He said the city council had

provided $10,000 of operational

funding to the centre this year

and he committed to having

staff investigate ways to continue

that funding into the future.

Using voluntary contributions

from shipping companies

towards the operation of the

centre would also be investigated

with the Lyttelton Port

Company, Cr Turner said.

He said there was a “process

under way” to investigate using

the former Donald St Stables

as a new site for the centre. The

former Lyttelton Museum site

was also considered.

Mr McLister said there could

be hundreds of crew arriving

daily when the cruise ships

returned.

“It’s not just a welfare issue

but making sure Lyttelton can

benefit economically from this,”

he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Halswell food stall for those in need

• By Anan Zaki

A COUPLE’S goal to provide

food for those in need has taken

off.

Keri and Dave Glassenbury

have set up the Sharing Shack, in

Halswell.

The shack is a food shelf, where

people can donate and take food.

It was built by computer programmer

Mr Glassenbury, and is

outside the Halswell Community

Hub, at the former Halswell Library

on Halswell Rd.

They set up the shack in

Halswell because Mrs Glassenbury

is a manager at the Halswell

Community Project, which

works to connect and support

people in the suburb.

In its first week of operation,

the Sharing Shack has been

frequently used and is regularly

filled up and then emptied.

“People are more often donating

more than they take away,”

Mrs Glassenbury said.

“The whole idea is, if there is

anybody out there struggling in

any way, you don’t have to put a

thing in there, just take the food,”

she said.

Mrs Glassenbury’s two-and-ahalf

years of helping the Halswell

community have made her passionate

about the area.

“It’s a great area and a number

of times we have talked about

moving to Halswell . . . I just see

FRESH FOOD: Halswell Community Project co-ordinator Kate

Keri Glassenbury stock up the Sharing Shack at Halswell

Community Hub.

the whole city as one community

as well,” she said.

The shack is mainly intended

for fruit and vegetables but

canned and instant meals have

also been common.

“If people want to, they can donate

other food, and that’s great.

There is always something that

somebody needs,” she said.

Many in the community

will want to help, Mrs

D.I.Y: Dave Glassenbury

building the Sharing Shack.

Glassenbury believed.

“We dropped it off at 3pm

on Sunday [September 9] , and

posted on Facebook. Straight

away people were like: ‘Oh where

is it, I want to drop things off’,”

she said.

Giving back to the community

is something Mrs Glassenbury

has always wanted to do and is

now encouraging her husband to

join in more.

“I’ve always enjoyed working

with people, I’m a people person.

Working in the community hub

. . . it’s an awesome way to meet

people from all walks of life.”

For Mr Glassenbury, volunteering

in the community is a new

experience.

“It was Keri’s idea and they [the

community project] wanted it

done, and I quite like that sort of

thing [building work],” he said.

His first experience was a rewarding

one. “I thought it would

be slow to take off but people

were very quick to get into it,” Mr

Glassenbury said.

Now that he has had his first

taste of working for the community,

another project is around

the corner.

“I am also building a library

shelf where people can share

books,” Mr Glassenbury said.

He didn’t think there would be

demand for food sharing.

“It appears there is . . . what

I also noticed is the amount of

people that want to give stuff.

That really surprised me,” he said.

He considers himself to be a

handyman around the house,

although the project is very different

from his job as a computer

programmer.

“I’ve often do jobs around the

house or building things for the

kids,” he said.

The couple hoped their goodwill

won’t be spoiled by people

trying to take advantage of the

situation.

“If it it does [get stolen], we’ll

just build another one,” Mrs

Glassenbury said.

But it was unlikely to be stolen

Mr Glassenbury believed.

“People can surprise you

sometimes, I think it’ll be fine.”

Eastgate bus hub plan moves forward

•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 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.

Yani

Johanson

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

Buckleys Rd bus stop.

The report said the remaining

fund of $1.1 million from the

intersection safety project is on

hold.

But Cr Johanson said part of

the project has been completed

with traffic signals being

installed. He said he doesn’t

agree with the money for a

safety improvement into the

intersection being taken off

budget and put into the public

transport.

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.

Fun to be had at new playground

SCARBOROUGH Playground

is back in action and ready just

as the sun starts to warm the

bays.

The park had been closed

since May for the upgrade and

opened recently with a mouse

wheel, eagles’ lair climbing net,

swing set, carousel, dancing

snake rope swing, four spring

toys and a new rocking horse.

Community feedback had

saved the old rocking horse, but

new safety guidelines meant it

was relegated as a feature in the

nature play area.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the

revamped Scarborough Park

provided a perfect space for

exploration, with plenty of play

equipment.

“Scarborough Park is now

home to an interactive play area

where youngsters can climb and

slide all day.

“We have aimed to create a

seaside haven for children, and

their families. The refurbished

and upgraded space will appeal

to everyone, providing plenty of

areas for imaginative play.”

The new design followed extensive

community consultation

with both adults and children.

Meanwhile, repairs are

under way on Scarborough’s

earthquake-damaged seawall

steps, they are expected to be

back in operation in two to

three months.

Repair work on the nearby

clock tower is expected to be

completed before Christmas.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Film prompts

interest in

food forests

• By Matt Salmons

ORGANISERS OF a food

sustainability film screening in

Sumner last week say attendance

shows interest in community

gardens and food forests is growing.

Sumner Bays Union Trust

sustainability co-ordinator Robin

Arnold said there was “kind of a

revolution” in attitudes towards

food sustainability.

“It’s learning old knowledge and

bringing it back.

“We’re connecting our communities

with where our food comes

from.”

A diverse group of more than

100 people attended the Thursday

evening screening of Edible

Paradise at Hollywood Cinema, Ms

Arnold said.

She said the mix of older and

younger people, experienced gardeners

and novices was fairly even.

The film showcased food forests

from around New Zealand and

told the stories of their creation.

Ms Arnold said feedback from

the night suggested people were

happy to see others sharing their

interest.

She said the earthquakes of 2010

and 2011 made it obvious that food

sources were vulnerable.

Cashmere went into the competition as favourites,

after winning and holding the Dowson (challenge)

Cup, and then convincingly winning the Thomson

Trophy (overall Canterbury Secondary School’s

Competition) for the second consecutive year.

Netball: Our Girls’ Senior A team finished a wonderful

season strongly by winning both their Wednesday and Saturday

competitions. They also performed with distinction at the

South Island Tournament in Dunedin.

Rugby at Cashmere continues to grow from strength

to strength with three teams entered into the Saturday

competitions. Our U15 team went through to win the U15

Section 2 Division with a 31-17 win in the final against CBHS,

and our U18 team won the Division 1 plate trophy.

The team now heads to the National Premier

Tournament in Palmerston North over the term

holiday break, keen to take on the big Auckland

schools.

The depth of our school’s basketball programme

was clearly evident when our school’s Boys B

Big win for Hillmorton

Young fencer

• By Jacob Page

THE HILLMORTON High

School basketball team are

looking to go one better than

their national tournament effort

last year when they head to

Palmerston North next month.

The team won the South

Island Secondary Schools A

premiership tournament for the

second year in a row in Blenheim

last Saturday.

They will look to avenge their

five point loss in the national

final against Stratford High

School in 2017 at this year’s

national tournament on October

1.

The A tournament is for

schools with under 600 students.

The team has not had an easy

road so far this year, losing their

coach and former Canterbury

Rams player Marques Whippy in

the middle of the season when he

moved away from the city.

Team manager Andrea

Kendrew said the team chose

not to find a new coach so not to

avoid a clash of playing styles.

“Marques had taught them all

they needed, they just went out

there and executed.”

Hillmorton won all five games

at the South Island tournament

and beat St Kevin’s College from

Oamaru 83-63 in the final.

Kendrew felt with six year

13 and six year 12 players, she

believed the balance was right

to go one better at the national

team for that experience.

players step up and run things on

the court with Marques leaving

and the team is confident we can

win,” she said.

SPORTS

wary of coach

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School

fencer Casper Howell will

be trying to avoid his former

coach during the national

championships at the end of this

month.

For the past two years his

previous mentor Adam Burrough

has knocked him out of the pinnacle

event on the New Zealand

fencing calendar.

“It’s annoying, funny, but

the luck of the draw,” he said.

“Ultimately I’d love to finish in

the top four at that event.”

The 16-year-old won the midsouth

under-20 sabre title three

weeks ago, as the best in his age

from the Waitaki River north.

It is just one of a number of

podium finishes for the year 12

student this year. Howell, who

competes for Addington’s Fencing

Institute, earned a bronze

medal at the national secondary

schools championships a fortnight

ago. “I’ve won a few medals

but I know that I’ll have to be

better if I want to break through

for a gold,” he said.

Howell has competed internationally

at the Australian

nationals in Sydney in July where

he finished 15th as an individual

and won bronze with the New

Zealand team.

VICTORIOUS: Cashmere High

School fencer Casper Howell

won the mid-south under-20s

fencing title.

He started competing in the

sport as a nine-year-old, two

years after seeing it for the first

time during the 2008 Beijing

Olympics.

Howell said to be good at fencing,

you needed similar attributes

to tennis.

“You have to be agile and to

think in the moment and react to

what’s in front of you.”

Howell said he would like to

compete internationally more,

try to move up the ranks as an

open grade competitor and push

for an Olympic spot after 2020.

St Thomas’ too good for St Kevin’s

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

ST THOMAS’ of Canterbury

College dominated two football

games to win their annual sports

exchange with St Kevin’s College,

in Oamaru on Wednesday.

St Thomas’ won the exchange

6-2 to retain the trophy.

They won the junior football

12-1 and senior 8-0 and then

backed that up in the basketball,

with the senior team winning

66-53 and the junior side prevailing

57-52.

It was a chance for the school’s

football teams to farewell

departing year 13 players and

welcome in younger talent.

Departing players Treye Butler

and Fin Claude travelled to

Oamaru to watch the games.

Butler scored 111 goals in 94

appearances for the first XI while

Claude presented his shirt to year

8 player Phoenix Coursey, who

was one of seven players to debut

for the top team.

The others were Diego

Lavin, Angus Dempster, Dylan

Barbour-Ryan, Jack Robinson,

Api Rabuka and Memphis

Vaszilyko.

The St Thomas’ first XV won

their game 39-12 but St Kevin’s

took a nail-biting win in the

under-15 match 38-37.

St Thomas’ also won the junior

debate, but lost the senior debate.

BIG SHOT: St Thomas’ Hunter Adam goes for a three-pointer

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

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

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

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.

established a national network of

practitioners that regularly train together

and can help you overcome this problem.

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.

direct access to the pool area, and is superbly

equipped with WIR, en suite and spacious

adjoining office/library. Four more bedrooms

(including a guest bedroom with en suite), a

family bathroom, separate laundry and triple

internal-access garage ensure this home is as

functional as it is breath-taking.

Outside, the 1,489 sqm grounds are

spectacularly landscaped to create a

completely private resort-style space for

relaxing and entertaining, complete with

inground pool, spa and children’s playground.

Planted in natives for easy maintenance

(perfect for a lock-up-and-leave lifestyle),

the garden is sheltered from easterly winds

for comfortable outdoor living. This is your

chance to secure your very own private

sanctuary from hectic modern living!

TURN IN the drive at 269 Hills Rd,

Located on the cusp of St Albans

with the intention to provide a local

club with a strong community focus.

Sixty years on and the club continues

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

from 5-8pm Thursday, Friday,

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.

Live music this Saturday with the
