“I originally thought I would

THAT’S A well deserved accolade for

music teacher Judith Bell on the front page

The Chisnallwood Intermediate teacher

is a finalist in the inaugural Music Teacher

of the Year category at the Vodafone New

And as she tells reporter Julia Evans, it’s her passion for music

which has got her there.

She has led the music programme for 20 years. That’s a great

stint.

As Judith says: “I originally thought I would be a composer

Playground closure gets backing

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Paul Lonsdale

BUSINESSES HAVE supported

a decision to close the New

Brighton Beachside Playground

over the first week of the school

holidays.

Development Christchurch

Ltd has decided to close the

playground over part of the

school holidays to allow for

upgrades to get under way.

Work began last week and it

will remain closed until October

5 while upgrades are undertaken.

DCL said

doing the work

now would

have less

impact than if

it was carried

out over summer

when the

park would be

busier.

“We do appreciate that the

work runs over the start of the

school holidays and we apologise

for any inconvenience this

may cause,” a spokesman said.

While some concerns have

been raised over the timing of

the closure, businesses have

been supportive of the decision.

New Brighton Business and

Landowners Association manager

Paul Lonsdale agreed.

“While it is a little bit inconvenient

for part of the school

holidays, it is best to get it out of

the way,” he said.

Bin Inn New Brighton owner

Nikki Griffin said while the

school holidays are not ideal, the

work is never going to be convenient

over the warmer months.

“It would be a positive if they

kept to the schedule and got

it open in the second week, it

would be even nicer if they got it

open earlier,” she said.

Paper Plus New Brighton

owner Blair Hughes said it is

“the best of the worse case.”

“My only concern is I think

sometimes they rush things.

Last year they opened it, I think

they should have waited and

done it completely and utterly

right the first time,” he said.

The $100,000 revamp includes

SURGICAL CRISIS IN TWO

WEE PUPPIES

Meet “Alice Victoria”, a 6 month old black and white Cocker Spaniel

and “Poppy” a 6 month old Pomeranian who recently had very long,

detailed and difficult surgeries basically to save their wee lives.

Let’s start with

the adorable, lets

run at a hundred

miles an hour,

Alice Victoria -

obviously named

after royalty (her

mum is British!).

Whilst out

coffeeing and

chatting with her

mum, Jean

pointed out a

very small 2mm

x 2mm small

white spot

inside her left

nostril. It wasn’t

bothering her

and didn’t seem

painful to poke.

She’s a very

adventurous

little girl so initially I thought trauma from

diving in and out of bushes. A short course

of antibiotics was prescribed in case of

localised infection.

Two months later it was still present, so I

decided to biopsy the spot. It hadn’t grown

and wasn’t painful or infected but her

mum wanted a diagnosis. I was shocked

and surprised to get a diagnosis back of

MCT (Mast Cell Tumor) which is a malignant

tumour commonly seen in dogs and cats –

although a MCT inside a nostril I hadn’t seen

before and in a puppy so young!

We urgently sought the advice of Oncology

specialists in Australia to work out what our

next move should be. They recommended

radiotherapy (very expensive and difficult to

do in pets with nasty side effects) or surgical

removal (also difficult to ensure complete

excision due to the location of the mass).

Chemotherapy was the 3rd option. Alice

had extensive blood testing, radiographs of

her lungs and a thorough Ultrasound of her

abdomen. No abnormalities or secondary

tumors were observed.

So Dr Steve Heap was nominated to perform

the delicate corrective surgery. It was an

exhaustive, delicate 2 hour procedure to

remove the mass and surrounding nasal

tissue and her subsequent draining lymph

node. Her wee nose looks slightly wonky

now but is functional and comfortable and

she’s alive!!! We are awaiting histology and

grading results from America to see whether

Chemotherapy will be needed as well.

We also performed a CT on Alice’s brain at St

Georges to make sure no tumour metastases

were detected as Alice started acting quite

bizarrely suddenly. Thankfully all was clear.

Tiny 2.5kg “Poppy” was referred to Catherine

Morganti one Friday for an endoscopic

examination as something was stuck in her

oesophagus and she couldn’t eat and was

trying to be sick. Usually these exams are

fairly quick and successful in retrieving the

culprit but not so in Poppy’s case.

Unfortunately after over 2 hours of

Catherine and Kirsty working the endoscope

down Poppy’s throat (with Poppy under

anaesthetic) and trying hard to dislodge

the stuck object, it was decided to perform

exploratory surgery, opening up her

stomach, trying to reach the object from

the inside. Steve scrubbed in as well and

eventually with a

team of 3 vets and

2 nurses on the

job, the object was

finally removed

(which was the

rubber off a

pencil and a large

doggie treat) – a 4

hour anaesthetic

in total on a

Friday night

(Lucky we

love surgery

and helping

pets as we

get many

Friday night

emergency

operations to

perform).

Poppy needed to spend a few nights at the

After Hours Clinic in critical care and a few

days with us on intravenous fluids to get her

stable, eating again and back to her cheeky,

gorgeous little self.

A successful great outcome for both Alice

Victoria and Poppy. Let’s hope the rest of

their lives going forward are not as dramatic

as the first 6 months have been!

Steve and I can’t thank our fabulous,

dedicated and expert team of Vets and

Nurses enough, who willingly stay behind

late to perform in many cases miracle

surgeries. We are so PROUD of our people

and the work they do on our patients.

Support for fireworks change

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

COMMUNITY groups

and businesses have

supported a change of date

to New Brighton’s iconic

fireworks event.

The display will

be held on Friday,

November 2, at New

Brighton Pier rather

than the traditional

Guy Fawkes night

on November 5.

City councillor

David East said it

is a good idea and

ultimately the event

needs to move away

from Guy Fawkes

as it has little

significance to the

country.

“Guy Fawkes,

it is not exactly

something particularly

relevant in New Zealand,”

he said.

David East

Nikki Griffin

Cr East said it would

be ideal for shops to

stop selling fireworks in

celebration of Guy Fawkes

and just to have the annual

fireworks display in New

Brighton.

Bin Inn New

Brighton owner

Nikki Griffin

said it is good the

fireworks will be

shifted to Friday

night.

She said it will

give families more

time to enjoy the

evening and put less

pressure for people

who have work or

school the next day.

“If it keeps an

event in Brighton it

is all positive,” Mrs

Griffin said.

are pleading for the event

to stay in New Brighton.

Several roads will be

closed from 6pm to allow

people to watch the display.

Parking restrictions

will also be in force, with

signage installed the day

before the event. New

Brighton Pier will be closed

from 7am on Friday until

2am on Saturday.

‘Dangerous’ crossing concerns

• By Ashleigh Monk

MAIREHAU RESIDENTS have

voiced their concerns over a

“dangerous” pedestrian crossing

which is used daily by Mairehau

Primary School children.

The crossing on Innes Rd

was brought up at a recent

Papanui-Innes Community

Board meeting after resident

Fiona Norton raised the issue in

a letter.

The New Zealand Transport

Authority recorded five crashes

at the crossing dating back to

2002 – one fatal, one serious, one

minor and two non-injury.

Community board member

Pauline Cotter said the crossing

would be investigated by staff.

“Sometimes these things aren’t

as dangerous as people think

they are. So we look to see if

there have been injuries, and if

there haven’t been many, then

it doesn’t rate very highly as a

priority.”

She said residents wanted

traffic lights installed near the

crossing to slow motorists down,

but a viable solution could not

be decided until the staff report

came back.

Fiona Norton lived just along

the road from Mairehau Primary

School, but she refused to

let her children walk to school by

themselves, in spite of being

able to see the crossing from her

gate.

“Young children and elderly

people use this crossing constantly,”

she said.

“It seems to be one or two cars

go through without stopping,

and if they do stop, the scary

thing is they’ll wait until you

get halfway and they’ll roar off

behind you.”

Mairehau Primary School

principal John Bangma said the

crossing had been an issue for

“many years,” and he had been

on the city council’s case to find

a solution.

“When I first started at

Mairehau we unfortunately had

an incident where an elderly lady

crossing the road was killed,” he

said.

“While people legally have to

stop when we have one side [of

the lollipops] out, most people

ignore it.”

He said the best solution

would be to install a set of traffic

lights at the corner of Innes Rd,

Philpotts Rd and Kensington

Ave to slow motorists.

“St Francis School has the

same issue with its crossing. If

we had those traffic lights, both

schools could cross safely,” he

said.

“I have just question, how bad

does it have to get before they

realise it’s a problem?”

St Francis School principal

Jo Earl said the main issue was

with motorists not respecting

the road rules.

“There have been minor

accidents, bumper to bumper,

out there – people get frustrated

because of the back-up of traffic

when both road patrols are

operating.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

NEW BRIGHTON’S favourite

rugby son, Ryan Crotty, had

time for his travelling fans

after the All Blacks loss to the

Springboks last Saturday.

The All Blacks midfielder, who

has played for New Brighton

since he was an under-five

junior, took selfies and signed

autographs with a large group

of fans dressed in New Brighton

colours at Wellington’s Westpac

Stadium.

The 29-year-old, who has

played 39 tests, got through a

full game of rugby after returning

from a head knock which

saw him leave the test in Sydney

against the Wallabies three

weeks ago.

The All Blacks play Argentina

on Sunday morning (NZ time).

There’s never been a more appropriate

time to buy a hybrid or electric vehicle.

Fuel costs are soaring, and global warming,

much of it attributed to fossil fuel emissions, is a

definite reality.

So if you want to do something for

the environment and save yourself some

cash at the weekly fill-up, then visit Trevor

Crowe, at CroweSport, 518 Moorhouse

Ave, for a lifestyle change.

The man who runs the business owns

the business, and Trevor, or any of the

friendly sales staff, can get you into an

electric vehicle or hybrid of your choice.

There are no fewer than 15 vehicles to

choose from, a mixture of fully-electric

plug-in Nissan Leafs to the hybrid petrol/

electric Prius.

Trevor says his stock consists of topgrade

models sourced from auction in

Japan. He chooses only the cars with

good battery life, and the cars on the yard

are displayed with the battery condition

visible. As with all cars on the yard at

CroweSport, the electric vehicles can be

serviced on-site by trained technicians.

Cars on-site vary in age from 2011 to

2017, and those with the latest generation

30kWh batteries can be expected to

provide a range of up to 190km. However,

petrol/electric Prius models are there for

those who experience range anxiety.

Prices for the Leafs start around $13,000

and end at around $30,000.

“The Leaf is the perfect urban commuter

– buyers who work in the city can travel to

work, swing by the supermarket on the

way home, and charge up from the home

supply overnight,’’ Trevor says.

“Charging costs can be measured

in cents, trickle charging overnight is

the kindest on the batteries although

fast charging on a journey won’t do the

batteries any harm.’’

Trevor is fully committed to the electric

revolution, and says there is a point of

difference in the models he chooses,

they are hand-picked and have workshop

backing. The first service is without cost,

as well as the first warrant of fitness.

While there is a heavy emphasis on

electric vehicles, the name CroweSport

is also synonymous with the sales of

Subaru vehicles. There are a wide range of

Subarus on-site, mostly pre-owned from

Japan.

Part of CroweSport’s success as a

business is down to Trevor’s proud

motorsport heritage. Major successes

include several New Zealand saloon

car championships, and the Asia Pacific

touring car championship, with a fourth

at Bathurst and third at the Wellington

Street Race in 1988. On shingle, Trevor

has won more than a dozen rallies, the

Ashley Forest rally sprint, and he is the

current Race to the Sky two-wheel-drive

champion. Trevor still competes, and

his race or rally cars are prepared in the

CroweSport workshop.

“Motorsport is at the cutting edge

of technology. Understanding the

complexity of tuning and setting up a

car for racing or rallying filters down to

day-to-day mechanics at workshop level,’’

Trevor says.

Trevor is an engineer and is still hand’son

in that side of the business. Engine

reconditioning is his speciality, although

he says they will take on anything from

a lube or tune-up right through to full

engine and gearbox overhauls. Nine

technicians are on site, and annually the

company takes on an apprentice, skills

developed through old-school training.

The CroweSport workshop team is highly

skilled and they will service any make or

model.

Trevor says many of his customers are

sport and recreational enthusiasts along

with those who are lifestyle and familyorientated.

And, of course, if you want a

performance enhancement, CroweSport

Subaru Specialists

has built up an enviable reputation in that

field.

Trevor’s philosophy is to get it right first

time, the company has high standards

and that reflects on the quality of the jobs

that go out the door. Although Trevor

leads from the front, he says the company

is like a family. Staff have input in the way

the company runs and operates.

“I want the customer to leave without

being presented with any surprises. We

treat the customer as if they are a family

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

MESSAGE FROM

THE PRINCIPAL

The Marian College Future Focus

team, which includes Board and staff

members, is beginning to plan for

the new school. We are taking the

opportunity to visit other schools, and

in particular, to learn from the many

other rebuilds in Canterbury.

Our aim is to create a school, which is

designed to match our quality teaching

practice. Marian College’s special

Catholic character, school spirit and

traditions, such as Feast Day (pictured)

will also be reflected in our new school.

A key part of the planning will be

engaging with our whole community

for input into the new Marian College.

Marian College thanks the Catholic

Diocese of Christchurch and Bishop

Paul Martin for their ongoing support

and guidance. We are confident the best

decision possible will be made for our

school.

In the meantime, Marian is continuing

to flourish. I hope you enjoy reading

about our latest happenings.

With blessings

Mary-Lou Davidson

Marian College Principal

HOUSE PANELS BLESSED

FEAST DAY

FESTIVITIES

Feast Day – celebrating the

Assumption of Mary – is the most

anticipated religious event on the

Marian College calendar. Feast

Day includes Mass, which this year

was celebrated by Bishop Paul

Martin SM, a house group singing

competition, talent quest and

chanting competition.

Congratulations to Seymour House for

top points on Feast Day 2018.

Marian College parents Luke Carey and

Janine Altenburg-Carey have created

four woven house panels, made from the

majestic pin oak which once stood on the

former Marian College site.

The panels represent the four Marian

College houses – Takahe, Deans, Seymour

and Brodie – and were blessed by Bishop

Paul Martin SM at Mass on Marian’s

celebration of Feast Day this term. To

discover the story and meaning behind the

panels, visit the news section on the Marian

College website.

Martin SM.

REMARKABLE RESULTS

The Marian College literacy programme

– known as The Writing Group – is

producing remarkable results and helping

to bridge the gaps for some junior students.

“I think a lot of the students are finding the

one-on-one time really beneficial and we

are seeing the results. As well as measuring

progress, for us it’s been about bridging the

gap for these students, so they are better

placed to catch up and be closer to the level

they should be at,” explains teacher Ellie

Caradus who heads The Writing Group.

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson is impressed with the writing

group’s progress.

BIG SMILES NO MATTER THE CONDITIONS!

Our sports teams are living examples

of our school values of courage,

perseverance and commitment. Well

done to all our teams, coaches and parent

supporters who travelled to compete in the

Secondary Schools Winter Tournament this

month. Go Marian!

There really is no

substitute for dedicated teachers

working closely with students.

The progress we are seeing is a

result of positive relationships

between skilled Marian staff,

and students who feel supported.

Mary-Lou Davidson

Marian College teacher Ellie

Caradus heads The Writing Group.

Marian College is part of the Catholic

Community of Learning Kāhui Ako, where

schools support each other to lift student

achievement. The schools target agreed

focus areas, such as literacy, which are

funded and supported by the Kāhui Ako.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Leni raises $2k in memory of dad

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THREE YEARS ago Leni

Smith decided she needed to do

something to help fight cancer

in honour of her late father.

Now 13-year-old

Chisnallwood Intermediate

head girl has raised nearly

$2000 on her own by selling

raffle tickets for two prize

baskets to support the Cancer

Society of New Zealand.

It is the third year she has

raised money for the society .

Last year she raised more than

$1500.

Her fundraising is a tribute

to her late father, Pete Smith,

who died eight years ago from

mesothelioma, a cancer caused

by exposure to asbestos.

“My dad died of cancer when

I was five and I want to help

change that. I don’t want that to

have to happen to anyone else.

I think it is really important

to me to help how I can,” Leni

said.

Her mother Emma Smith

said Leni started fundraising

in June and, over the past three

weeks, had done some “serious

door- knocking” in areas like

Prestons, Tumara Park and New

Brighton.

Leni is about $30 off reaching

her target of $2000.

want to raise as much as I can,”

“Being physically active is so

good for our physical well-being.

I’d love to support anyone getting

active if I can,” Ms Williams

said.

Phillip Goundar said the

opportunity to compete in the

Coast to Coast would create

memories forever.

“I didn’t have a racing bike

capable of doing the Coast to

Coast, or any of the camping

gear you need to make it

through, so competing wasn’t

an option for me. Once I heard

about this opportunity, I knew I

had to take it,” he said.

Leni is planning to draw

teacher hits

right note

•From page 1

Mrs Bell, along with the

orchestra and choir, put on a

performance for Ms Parata to

highlight why the school should

not be closed.

“We had a surprise performance

set up in the foyer. We played the

Crusaders theme because that

really represents Canterbury. It

was a powerful moment,” she

said. It was a memorable moment

of her teaching career. But it is the

day-to-day highlights that are her

biggest motivation.

She said she didn’t think

intermediate was the age she’d be

teaching when she first started.

“It’s good to discover music in

the intermediate years. It’s when

I first really started playing. They

can be quite hard, but can be the

best years,” she said.

Mrs Bell said she has loved

music her whole life. She first

started playing piano and guitar

in primary school, but really

found her passion when she learnt

clarinet in intermediate.

“Then I learnt brass just so

I could be in the brass band

at high school. I wrote for the

orchestra and went to Canterbury

University to study music. I didn’t

even think about my career, I just

knew I wanted to learn music.”

As well as leading

Chisnallwood’s music

department, Mrs Bell is the

president of Music Education

Canterbury, where she coordinates

music at organisations

such as Canterbury University,

Ara Music Arts and the

Christchurch School of Music.

She is also on the board of

Music Education New Zealand

Aotearoa.

Whoever nominated her

remains a mystery. “I don’t know

who nominated me, but I am

really, really thrilled. I respect

everyone who does my job so it’s

really humbling,” Mrs Bell said.

Burnside High School

Culinary Champions

Congratulations to Maggie Carroll and Liza Khorozova who

are now National Culinary Champions having won the National

Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge 2018, held recently at

the Manukau Institute of Technology.

Our team competed against seven regional winning teams,

coming away with gold medals. They had to prepare, cook and

present, four individually plated portions of an entrée and four

portions of the main course within 90 minutes.

The entrée had to contain fresh New Zealand grown tomato as

the principal component of the dish. The main course portions

had to include at least three fresh New Zealand grown

vegetables, one of which had to be a potato. The protein

component was produced from a Waitoa chicken breast.

Tomato Entree

Tomato tart with fresh tomato and basil salad, manuka smoked

tomato foam with goats cheese accompanied by a rich tomato

sauce.

Chicken Main

Chicken breast filled with broad bean farce on truffle potato

puree with petite crumbed sausage, seasonal vegetables

served with jus and tarragon cream sauce.

Golf Success

The Burnside High School Golf team came a very respectable

3rd in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Golf Final, on

Monday 3rd September, in Palmerston North.

Juliana Hung has been selected in the New Zealand Golf Team

to participate in the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympics from

Governor General

visits the school

This term, Burnside High School was lucky enough to have Her

Excellency the Rt Hon. Dame Patsy Reddy, Governor General

of New Zealand visit our school. This began with a welcome

from our Kapa Haka group, Head Students and Senior

Leadership.

She visited a selection of classes in our very successful Visual

Arts department followed by a senior Hospitality classroom.

An interactive discussion took place on the ‘Into Motion’ hui

(@intomotionnz) which was a conference based around

gender equality held at Burnside High School last term.

Altogether, the visit was a success and we hope it gave

Her Excellency an interesting look into Burnside High School

culture.

Music Success

Term 3 has seen an incredible series of musical

achievements on the local and national stage. At the ARA

JazzQuest competition Burnside High School Big Band

won a Gold Award and the “Best Big Band” title for a fifth

consecutive year. Our Junior Jazz Ensemble and Funk

Band also won Gold Awards.

RAQS (Hijiri Yamamoto, Claudia Crosland and Lixin

Zhang) reached the National Final of the NZCT Chamber

Music Contest and won the KBB Award, a huge

achievement in this highly competitive field.

Our senior choirs took part in a day of workshops and a

concert under the guidance of renowned American Choral

Director Jo-Michael Scheibe. Later, they competed at

The Big Sing National Finale where both Bel Canto and

Senior Chorale won Gold Awards with Bel Canto also

picking up the Tour Time trophy for “Best Performance of

a Classical Work”. Malestrom once again won the regional

Barbershop Chorus contest and go on to compete at the

National Finals in Tauranga.

Our Concert Band and Orchestra are now National

Champions, both ensembles having won their class at the

Wellington Band and Orchestral Festival. The Concert

Band and Junior Concert Band also won Gold Awards at

the CWSTMA Wind Festival in Christchurch.

The finale to our busy term will be “The Rat Pack”; a

tribute to the songs of Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Dean

Martin performed by our multi award-winning Big Band

with 20 piece string section and vocal soloists from the

Specialist Music Programme. This concert is being held

at The Piano, 7.00pm on Saturday 29th September and

Mathematics success

for Burnside High

In May this year 1100 top Year 12 and 13 Maths students from

throughout the country sat the preliminary paper for the

New Zealand Senior Mathematics Competition. From this

large group the top 15 students in the country were selected

to take part in the final at Victoria University in Wellington

on August 17th. Two of the top 15 were from Burnside High

School: Robin Wan, Year 13, and Ethan Ng, Year 12.

The final consisted of a 4 hour paper of very challenging

mathematical questions. After the papers had been marked

the top 3 place getters were announced. Ethan Ng was

placed second in this very prestigious competition. This is

an outstanding effort, especially considering that Ethan,

at age 13, was four or five years younger than the other

finalists. Congratulations to both Robin and Ethan.

Shirley trust makes most of new space

Fire rages, homes at risk

The Shirley Community

Trust has been operating

for almost 20 years and

has recently welcomed

a new building at the

MacFarlane Park Centre.

Ashleigh Monk visited

the centre to see what

the trust was all about

EVERY DAY Ian Dunbar sits at

the entrance of the MacFarlane

Park Centre and greets people as

they walk through the door.

Everyone is welcome here at

the Shirley Community Trust,

the community worker says.

They can take part in the centre’s

many activities or have a chat

and a cup of tea.

“People put Shirley down at

times, but there’s some really

good people in Shirley. People

with good hearts. It’s like any

other suburb, there’s good parts

and not so good parts,” says Mr

Dunbar, who works part-time at

the centre.

The centre’s a bit cramped in

the main building; one round

table is crammed into the end of

the room, surrounded by chairs.

But at the end of August,

volunteers and staff at the centre

welcomed a new building, which

provides space for more people to

gather.

“We couldn’t do a lot of things

because we didn’t have the

space before, but now with two

buildings, it’s better because we

have the room for more groups,”

Mr Dunbar said.

And the space was definitely

needed – hundreds of people

regularly use the facility, and

over the course of the year, about

15,000 volunteers come and go,

keeping the place running.

“It takes a lot of work to keep

this place going. Even one day a

week, it takes about 60 volunteers

to do that. You have people

cooking or doing baking, and

people just being here to support

others.”

Mr Dunbar has been working

at the centre for about nine

years – but it was established

long before that. The centre was

brought to life in 1999 by a group

from Shirley.

The first centre was in St

Stephens Church, but as the need

for space grew, it moved in 2002

to the former Plunket rooms on

Acheson Ave.

“It was seen as a bit of a dodgy

area, so Plunket went elsewhere

and the Shirley Community

Trust set up here,” he said.

The centre plays host to about

25 different events and activities,

including a fruit and vege co-op,

a foot care clinic, barista training

and a monthly community lunch.

“We’ve sent 1000 garments out

this year,” she said.

“When the earthquakes

happened, we decided we’d do

“It’s just finding people in the

really everything this place is

rewarding part of her job was

hearing the “glowing reviews”

from those who visited the centre

- particularly elderly people who

attended the foot care clinic to

have their nails trimmed and feet

massaged.

“Other than being good for

the health of their feet, for a lot

of elderly people that are coming

in that’s a big outing for them. It

becomes a real social thing,” she

said.

“And let’s be honest, some of

us can’t reach our toes anymore,”

Mrs Duff said.

“The one that really touched

me was this man who lost his

wife about 10 months ago,” Ms

Burnett said.

“He’s a gentleman at the best of

times, he’s just who you’d wish

to have as your dad or granddad.

He hadn’t been back here in quite

a while but I got this message

from his daughter and she said

‘he’s been raving about you guys,

but it’s been a struggle to get him

here because he thinks he’s been

away too long and you wouldn’t

want him back’.”

“As soon as he came in, I just

got up and gave him a hug. He

said ‘did you miss me?’ and I

said ‘did we what! Of course we

missed you’. His daughter said

he needed something like this to

brighten his day, because all he

does is sit with his photo albums,

looking through them. They were

married 64 years, and wherever

there is space for a photo of

her around his house, there’s a

photo.”

And it wasn’t just elderly people

who visited the centre.

“We had a wee boy come to

the coffee mornings and the first

time he came, he was dressed in

a suit. It was like he was coming

for a job interview, I said he was

the best-dressed man we’d ever

seen here. He wants to be a chef,

and I tell you what, he had some

amazing knowledge of food.”

Ms Burnett said people who

ran and visited the centre had all

become “a great big family”.

“We wouldn’t have it any other

way.”

Questions raised on the

frequency of pier cleaning

Pier has prompted questions into

how often it is cleaned.

Golf club gears up for centenary

a member’s experience, not

to reduce price.

PROUD: Richard Sinclair in front of the new Avondale Golf Club building.

Central to increasing value

are two “virtual golf” simulators

within the lounge of the new

clubhouse.

The functionality and flexibility

of the new clubhouse

alongside continual course improvement

post-earthquakes has

helped to increase membership

by more than 25 per cent in the

past 10 months and it continues

to grow.

Junior golf numbers have also

grown rapidly with Andy Sams

coming on board as golf professional.

Andy’s passion for golf shows

as his junior clinics regularly see

20-30 juniors and their parents

on course and enjoying the benefits

of the simulators.

Socially and ethically rewarding

has been the use of the clubhouse

by residents for functions

and specifically hosting charitable

quiz nights supporting local

causes and residents.

The Avondale Golf Club is now

in its 99 th -year and is proud to

be a part of the re-building and

re-shaping of our community as

we approach our centenary.

Within our centenary calendar

for 2019 is a charitable tournament

to benefit our local community

amongst a host of other

events.

We believe growing our game

at Avondale is growing our

community and we’d love to see

you soon.

Readers respond to city

councillor David East’s bid

for an independent inquiry

into why a clause was left

out of the District Plan that

made it difficult for people

in the High Flood Hazard

Management Area to build

on their properties

Aileen Trist – We are so

lucky to have our representative

city councillor David East

watching our backs and going

out to fight for the community

on the east. This whole process

he is going through at the

moment to help the people

fight a prejudice city council

has shown how the other

councillors are afraid to be up

front and honest regarding their

thoughts on the matter in case

they are not kept in favour other

members of the city council—

very disappointing.

The revolution

Bruce Perkins – Yes, I agree

that city councillors should be

able to criticise the council if it

is in the interest of the public.

There is too much hidden when

they supposed to be running

the city with ratepayers’ money.

Readers respond to

the Pegasus Post article

on the Coastal-Burwood

plans to have the fronds

Bridge

Aileen Trist – I have been

working with city councillor

David East regarding the fronds

since they were taken down in

2010. They suffered no damage

then but the New Zealand

they could be a danger to cars

crossing the bridge. Cr East has

behalf to come up with a plan to

make them a stand-alone display

by the bridge until they can be

put back up in their rightful

place. There is no reason this

should not go ahead sooner

rather than later. I fought hard

with Cr East to have them put

back after they were taken down

in 2008 and I would like to see

them put back now not 10 to 20

years later.

Michele and Carl Craw –

Yes, we would like to see

these works of art re installed.

There seems to be money for

other projects but once more

the eastern suburbs don’t have

too many councillors speaking

on their behalf. The district

council is showing a definite

lack of goodwill when it comes

to improving the environment

in our areas. Now the excuse is

the planned replacement of the

bridge. Another excuse that lacks

credibility.

Helena Beran – No I don’t

think they should be re installed.

When they were up they used

to freak me out every time I was

driving past them. On a windy

day you see them moving. To me

they were an accident waiting to

happen. Had a real fear off them

flying off. I’m sure other people

would have felt the same. I was

so glad when they were taken

A reader responds

to the Pegasus Post

article on the Coastal-

Burwood Community

Board approving 35 trees

to be planted at Rawhiti

Domain

Carl and Michele Craw –

If we have at times criticised

the city council for being

reluctant to spend money on the

eastern suburbs, credit should be

given where it is due. In this case

its agreement to plant 35 trees

at the Keyes Rd entrance to the

domain will, we are sure, make

a difference. This will beautify

the area, enhance a healthy

environment and perhaps best

of all, will show residents that

their needs and wishes are not

systematically overlooked.

ADVERTORIAL

Christchurch School of Music in the community

Christchurch School of Music on a

Saturday morning is a really exciting

place to be! Everywhere you go there

will be music wafting through the doors

and windows and lots of excited children

and happy adults heading towards their

classroom. If you come on down to our

Open Day at 62 Ferry Rd (Catholic

Cathedral College) on Saturday 29

September between 9am and 1.30pm

you can see (and hear) for yourself!

You will even get the chance to try out

an instrument for yourself in the ‘Try an

Instrument” room.

This Open Day is part of a week of

CSM ensembles playing across the city

as part of our “CSM in the Community”

event. We will be in markets, malls,

hospitals and churches at various times

across the week. Check out our Events

Guide for days and times.

The CSM is a family-oriented

community aimed at providing

quality music education in and around

Christchurch. The school has been an

important part of the Christchurch

music education scene for 63 years so

why not come along and join us?

From ages 2 to 92 we have something

for everyone. On a Saturday morning the

whole family can find something to suit.

Preschool and junior school children can

start their musical journey by joining in

our experiential “Take Off with Music.”

The classes are carefully planned to

ensure maximum fun, engagement and

music learning.

At 4½ years children are also able to

begin learning Suzuki violin or cello

with our very experienced Suzuki

teachers and at 5 years old the recorder

is a great way to start children learning

an instrument that will set them up with

music reading and musicianship skills

that will last a lifetime.

Older children and adults may opt for

group or individual lessons on a specific

instrument (including voice). Those

who already play are welcome to join

in one of the great ensembles which all

take part in regular concerts including

Saturday soirees and a wide range of

community events. Recitals where

individuals can perform are also held

regularly.

The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra,

CSM’s top orchestra, generously

sponsored by the University of

Canterbury Foundation, has an exciting

concert series throughout the year. Their

upcoming concert, “Halloween” being

held in the Christchurch Girls’ High

Auditorium on 27 October is an excellent

opportunity to hear Christchurch’s top

youth musicians in concert. (Tickets

available through Eventfinda)

With six orchestras, two concert

bands, a Big Band, a jazz combo, six

wind ensembles, rock bands, two choirs,

chamber groups, a samba band and a

guitar ensemble there is an ensemble to

suit all levels and all ages.

CSM also provides a comprehensive

music education to participating primary

schools via its Outreach programmes.

Programmes are offered in band, strings,

recorder and ukulele in a wide range of

Christchurch schools.

Another popular area of the School

is the Late Starters programme where

adults approaching retirement with

more time on their hands have really

enjoyed learning an instrument they

never had the chance to play in their

early years and join an ensemble with

other like-minded adults.

If Saturday isn’t an option, CSM also

offers a range of weekday opportunities

for learning and playing music.

If affordability is an issue, CSM may be

able to offer a discount through funding

provided by the Rata Foundation.

Enrolments are open for 2019 so come

on down and have a look around or

check out our website www.csm.org.nz

and let us start you on a musical journey

that will bring pleasure for a lifetime.

The gospel

music of

Elvis Presley

"It's a great honour to fulfil one of Elvis'

dreams and put together a gospel show of

his favourite songs” - Andy Stankovich

ANDY Stankovich performs the Grammy

Award-winning Gospel Music of Elvis

Presley at the Isaac Theatre Royal in

November.

Marking the 41st Anniversary of Elvis'

passing, the incomparable Andy

Stankovich (whose uncanny voice has

stunned even Presley's own gospel backing

group, The Jordanaires) steps into Elvis'

shoes and recreates the unforgettable

sound of an icon with Elvis: The Gospel

Music.

Elvis has always been a big part of

Andy’s life. From as early as the age of

seven he clearly remembers singing Elvis

classics at family gatherings. Having

performed throughout Australia, New

Zealand, America and the Pacific, Andy's

ambition has always been to keep the

music of Elvis alive and this is evident in

the sincere performances he gives.

Musical Director, Mark Dennison, will

bring together an all star cast, including the

Memphis Show Band, a handpicked

selection of some of the country's finest

For one night only, the music

that defined and shaped an icon,

will take centre stage. Timeless

classics from ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘In

the Ghetto’ to ‘Where Could I Go

But To The Lord’ will fill

Christchurch's Isaac Theatre

Royal.

Come and witness the

magnificence that is the Gospel

Music of Elvis Presley.

on your head you can spoil yourself on our

Expo Lounges and leave the Expo feeling a

little more relaxed and pampered.

Pampering

sessions at

the Expo

range of hair and beauty products including

discounted GHDs you could walk away with

a few bargains as well. Sit down and have

your hair curled by the Vivo team for free and make sure you have your photo

taken in front of the Vivo photo wall so you can enter to win a fabulous makeover

package.

Mama Lash will be at the Expo for the first time. Stop by their large Pamper

Lounge where the team will be offering Expo visitors lash extensions and brow

treatments onsite. If you have always wanted long, thick and full eyelashes then

chat to the team onsite and discover the easy way to achieve fabulous looking

eyes that will make you stand out in a crowd. You can either have your eyebrow

extensions done at the show or simply watch a demonstration to see how this

stunning look is achieved.

After a successful show last year, Sparklewhite Teeth will once more be offering

teeth whitening treatments at the show. This area was buzzing last year with

visitors lining up to take advantage of the amazing expo only prices. Sparklewhite

Teeth have developed a new technology for teeth whitening that works so

effectively you can lighten your teeth by 2-10 shades in just one 60 minute

session. Create a positive attitude for yourself and improve your appearance while

achieving a more youthful look with your new radiant smile.

Sparklewhite will also have the fascinating Aduro’s LED mask onsite for visitors

to try out at the show. A re-invention of the traditional facial mask brought up-todate

through the use of LED light technology Aduro’s patented design follows the

contours of the face and covers the entire facial area in therapeutic light – offering

and signs of aging.

Before you leave the Expo take your tired feet over to the Southern Reflexology

Group Lounge and treat yourself to a relaxing reflexology treatment.

The ancient Chinese practice of reflexology, a manual therapy focusing on the

feet, has recently enjoyed a surge in popularity as a modern holistic therapy to

relieve pain and stress. Reflexologists believe that different areas on your feet and

hands correspond to other parts of your body, and massaging them stimulates

your parasympathetic nervous system to heal itself. Reflexology can help to create

a healthy harmonious state within the body and triggers the body’s natural powers

of self-healing.

Find out more from the Southern Reflexology Group onsite at the Women’s

Lifestyle Expo.

THE ULTIMATE

WEEKEND FOR

WOMEN IS

BACK!

The Expo is a perfect place to meet for a girl’s day out but it’s also a great

place to escape and have some well-deserved “me time” if you would

rather browse the sites by yourself at your own pace. With so much going

on and with Door sales only $10 there is every reason to visit and none to

stay at home!

Renee Murray from NZME Events says “Our aim is to have as wide of a

range of companies involved with the Expo as possible. Women are all

different and their individual interests are so diverse. One woman may

be interested in gourmet food but the woman beside her may be more

interested in organic skincare or booking a V8 Supercar drive. We have

artisan crafters like jeweller Debra Fallowfield exhibiting alongside national

brands like Vivo Hair and Suzuki. It’s great on the weekend to see all the

various women visit the show, from teenagers to business women, mothers

to grandmothers and friends simply enjoying each other’s company”.

CleanPaleo launching new product at the Expo

CleanPaleo is a NZ company dedicated to creating great tasting, clean,

whole food products that let your body know that ‘You Mean Business’ when

it comes to looking after yourself. The Expo will give visitors a chance to

buy their brand new Better Balls product, a revolution in healthy snacking

because they genuinely are a healthy snacking option – less than 20% sugar

and they taste amazing! Make sure you stop by the CleanPaleo site in the

Expo Taste Zone where you can also chat with reality TV couple and health

gurus Art Green and Matilda Rice.

Since appearing on The Bachelor NZ, Art and Matilda have both become

proponents of healthier eating with Art extending his interest in healthier

living into a business venture, part-owning Riot Foods, which consists of

sub-brands Clean Paleo and Poppy and Olive which you can both discover

at the Women’s Lifestyle Expo.

The popular Craft Zone will include artisan crafters from all over New

Zealand with gorgeous original products often not found in shops including

kitchen herb planters, soaps & beauty products, original art, home decor,

handmade jewellery, beeswax wraps and more.

For a ‘tasteful’ experience like no other, head to the ‘Taste Zone’ where you

can experience, try, and buy a range of fantastic products, so why not treat

yourself? From wine to paleo food, meat rubs & spices and even french

terrines, parfaits and pates you can tantalise your taste buds with a tasty

treat from the Expo Taste Zone.
