Fight

against

bus route

cuts

heats up

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A DEPUTATION has

been made to Environment

Canterbury to fight against

the cutting of bus routes

in Linwood, Bromley and

Woolston.

Woolston Residents’

Association chairwoman Jackie

Simons and Woolston resident

and affected bus user Paul

McMahon presented a petition

of more than 1200 signatures on

Thursday.

ECan chief executive Bill Bayfield

will investigate the issues

raised.

It is after ECan planned to cut

bus route 535 and reroute the

145 Westmorland service into

the central city meaning it would

no longer travel to Eastgate Mall.

Initially, this meant no bus

service would run through

Bromley.

ECan has since come back

with a shopper service, the

155, which will be introduced

in the south-east of the city,

running between Lyttelton and

Eastgate via Ferrymead. The

155 is planned to replace the 535

and 145 Westmorland service

running into Eastgate.

THE ACID test is about to go on

Cashmere High’s basketball team.

They’re off to the nationals in

Palmerston North next week with some

grand form behind them (see page 10).

Captain, Quinten Conner says getting the simple things right

will be the key.

That might sound logical, but in any sport you have to do the

basics right if you are to have any chance of winning. The less

mistakes you make means the less chance you have of losing

the ball.

And retaining possession is everything, whether it be

basketball, league, rugby or football.

The Cashmere boys have also had two friendly games against

older opposition to prepare for the nationals.

Hopefully, that’s the final tune-up they need.

Playground closure gets backing

Local

News

Now

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

• 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

the installation of two new

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.

Pegasus Post

reported how the event has

come under scrutiny from

the city council as part of

Celebrating our Tui

“The Tui’s sing-songy warble is in the

distance as I write. Often when

I’m outside I answer back with a

somewhat substandard whistle

to try and make them answer.

At the edge of the path leading

down to the bridge is a large

tree. Most of the year it sits in

a rather unspectacular manner

waiting for it’s time in the sun.

Then, as if from nowhere, it

bursts into flower. Great clusters

of colour embellish it’s branches.

And then they come. The Tui. I once

counted twenty eight Tui from near and

far feasting on the nectar with frenzied passion.

The beauty of the tree and the Tui’s song was

enchanting.

Ever watchful on flax fronds or drunk on fresh Kowhai

nectar, our Tui with their sheeney feathers and white

bib are captivating; that haunting call to another bird

Kirsty spent her early working

career in the advertising

industry pushing her brain to

explore words and imagery.

However the artistic pull was

strong and she chose to become

a fulltime artist in 1997.

Although she has explored other

subjects, she is constantly

drawn to the New Zealand

landscape in its various guises.

Her imagery often brings the native

bush to the foreground to give the feeling of stepping

into the scene, the coastline just within reach in the

background.

Bid to protect penguins

LYTTELTON PORT Company

is working with ecologists to

protect penguins as construction

begins on the new cruise berth.

Land-side pilling had begun

for the new berth, completion of

which was expected for the 2021

cruise season.

Ecologist Annabelle Coates

is part of a team checking the

construction site for nesting little

white-flippered penguins.

“We look for penguins and also

for penguin poo, which looks like

a splat of white paint. Often, if

they are around, you can smell

them, too,” she said.

The ecologists had installed

timed and motion detecting infrared

cameras along the seawall

to monitor the area for birds

arriving at night.

The little white-flippered

penguin, sometimes known as

the little blue penguin or fairy

penguin, is small with a distinctive

white stripe on the top of its

wing.

While the white-flippered penguins

are found only on Banks

Peninsula scientists believe they

are not genetically different from

little penguins.

“It’s kind of like how you get

black fantails and grey fantails

but they are the same species,”

Ms Coates said.

LPC environmental manager

MONITORING: Annabelle Coates installing motion detection

infrared cameras along the seawall. ​

Kim Kelleher said voluntary

wildlife training, including looking

after penguins, was popular

with staff.

“The port has recently added a

wildlife section to its construction

management plan. This

clearly spells out what needs to

happen if any wildlife is encountered.

Construction has to stop

and a trained staff member will

come and assess the situation,”

she said.

Once ecologists declare the

cruise berth site to be penguinfree,

holes will be filled in to keep

the birds from nesting there during

construction.

Their breeding season runs

from August to February and

eggs are generally laid between

July and November. Eggs take

around 37 days to hatch and

chicks leave the nest at around 55

days old.

Around the port, penguins

have been known to nest in the

seawalls from the inner harbour

to near the coal yard. LPC controls

predators such as rats and

possums in the area and surveys

the nests.

The company was authorised

to handle the penguins if they

needed to move them.

•From page 1

It would run three times a day

Monday-Friday. The number of

times the bus is planned to run

has raised concerns in the community.

The new bus routes are

planned to come into place in

October.

“Looking at the long-term view

of what these buses being cut can

do to our community is almost

heart-breaking,” Ms Simons told

the council.

She said the cutting of the bus

routes will lead to isolation for

some of the most vulnerable in

the city.

Ms Simons said when people

become isolated they suffer depression,

they don’t eat properly

and they won’t go to the doctor

because they had to get a taxi for

their groceries.

“Most of the people you are

taking these buses away from, are

hard-working honest people.”

She said the costs of cutting the

bus services will fall back onto

community groups including the

Salvation Army and Presbyterian

Support services.

Her views were supported by

He said while the route of the

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

• By Matt Salmons

POLICE WILL not help pay

for crime cameras proposed in

Sumner and now residents will

seek community board funding.

Concerned residents raised

$4000 to buy two CCTV cameras

last year, but were told they

needed cameras which would

work with the Christchurch City

Crime Camera Network.

The two cameras will cost

$20,000, leaving them $16,000

short.

Police previously told the residents

that money may have been

available for the cameras from a

discretionary fund.

However, a letter from police

to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board quashed

its financial support for the

proposed cameras due to a lack of

funding.

South Island police district

services manager Kelvin Giddens

said the budget allocated towards

the cameras had been halved this

year.

Mr Giddens said for the past

seven years, police and the city

council had worked in partnership

to maintain and expand the

Firefighters put to test in training exercises

• By Matt Salmons

CAR FIRES, smoke, fire engines

The four scenarios were rescuing

a heart attack victim from

a dinghy, recovering a crashed

mountain-biker, controlling a

vegetation fire and dealing with a

car fire.

“The basic of it is to keep it

simple,” Mr Norris said.

“We had patients with realistic

Design for Collett’s Corner selected

• By Matt Salmons

A LINK to Lyttelton’s creative

chaos put design group in:flux’s

design The Hive on top in

the Collett’s Corner design

competition.

The winners were announced

on Friday morning after the

jury of Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner, Tony van Raat and Ohu

founder Camia Young came to

a decision.

“I would say it was extremely

difficult. It was not an easy

decision,” Ms Young said.

“All three were remarkable,

and I would have been happy

with each and all of them.”

The 1144 online votes also

impacted the decision, Ms

Young said.

When finished, Collett’s

Corner would be a 2300m2

mixed-use building including

accommodation, workspaces,

cinemas, a bar, restaurant and

hot baths.

Winning design group

in:flux was selected thanks

to its recognition of the area’s

context, carefully curated arrangement

and use of scale.

Combining grand size and

human scale were very difficult

to do in architectural design,

Ms Young said, and designs

normally only achieved one or

the other.

She said in:flux had also

incorporated many suggestions

put forward by the community

earlier in the competition.

The in:flux team said they

were excited to help realise

Ohu’s plan after winning the

competition.

Member Paul Anselmi said

to would be exciting to see how

the community would use their

design.

“On the other hand I think

the proposed prefabrication

and timber construction

would be exciting to see grow

and add to Lyttleton’s unique

streetscape and scale,” he said.

As well as their design being

used for the build, in:flux took

home $10,000.

The other designers, Oto

Group and AHHA were also

recognised for aspects of their

designs and each received

$5000.

All three finalists had been

selected from a group of 31 initial

entries and had presented

their designs at a September 6

event.

Ohu was now looking for

business owners for the site

and would hold a second public

gathering on October 17 to

share the outline of the investment

proposal.

Cashmere basketballers ready national champs

• By Jacob Page

CASHMERE HIGH School

basketball captain Quinten

Conner believes his team’s ability

to do the simple things well will

be their best asset at the national

champs next week.

The two-time South Island

champions under-performed

at the national secondary

schools’ championships last year,

finishing 13th.

Now Conner is eager to finish

his fourth and final year in the

team on a high note.

The championships at

Palmerston North run from

October 1-6.

“Last year between the

South Island and national

championships, I think we

switched off a bit and that hurt

our chances of performing well,”

he said.

To try to prevent that,

they had two friendly games

against Lincoln University and

Canterbury University last

Monday and Tuesday.

Conner says his squad has

more depth than 12 months ago

and that would suit tournament

basketball.

“Everyone knows their roles

and we don’t rely on specific

people,” he said.

“We can pound the ball inside

and get points, but we also have

perimeter shooters who can

knock it down.”

Cashmere will play Napier

Boys’ High School, Waimea

College, Macleans College

from Auckland, St Patrick’s

College from Wellington,

and another team yet to be

confirmed.

Cashmere are undefeated in

the Canterbury secondary school

competition this year and had an

undefeated trip to Auckland in

August where they beat Westlake

Boys’ High School, St Kentigern

College, Rangitoto College and

defending national champions

Rosmini College.

“Winning games against

North Island competition

always gives us a little bit

more confidence, even though

Rosmini was a little understrength

it shows we can match it

with their squad.”

Conner said if his team

can adjust to the faster pace

of the North Island style of

play, he is confident they

could go a long way in the

tournament.

Hornby Primary School students learning on their digital devices.

TrusT seeks supporT

for innovative education programme

Students at the Uru Manuka cluster of seven schools across

south-west Christchurch are benefitting significantly from

an innovative learning programme developed by two Auckland

teachers and based on a digital platform.

Since its launch in Christchurch three years ago, the programme

has been funded by the Manaiakalani Trust, which

funds the Auckland programme, but that support has now

come to an end and a new trust has been set up in Christchurch

to ensure the highly successful programme can

continue.

Principal of Hornby Primary Gary Roberts, says the major

cost of the programme is employing the educational programme

leaders (EPLs), who train the schools’ teachers to

provide one-on-one teaching for the students’ digital learning.

That cost is $80,000 to $100,000 per year.

“Pivotal to the success of the programme is the upskilling of

our teachers by the EPLs to deliver on a digital platform,”

Mr Roberts says, “and that’s why we formed the Charitable

Education Trust to source funds.”

The trustees are manager of The Hub Jason Marsden,

former Christchurch mayor Garry Moore, Janine Morrell-

Gunn, Rose Crossland and Daisy Lavea-Timo. They are

speaking to various businesses and organisations, initially

focusing on the Hornby area, Mr Roberts says. Hornby

Rotary has come on board with funding, and they are

hoping the general public will also consider supporting the

programme.

“For example, for the cost of two coffees a week, or $40

a month, you could support the 1900 learners in the Uru

Manuka cluster, or you could make a one-off donation,” he

says.

“This is a ‘good news’ story about transforming the way

teaching on a digital platform creates engaged, motivated

learners. Student achievement data is supplied to the Woolf

Fisher Research Centre at Auckland University for analysis,

and the results are proving the programme is making a difference.”

Fundamental to the programme’s success is the cohesive

approach teachers across the cluster are taking, Mr Roberts

says.

“The kids are hugely advantaged by that consistency, particularly

in the transition from years 4, 5 and 6 into years

7-13.”

Donations to the trust can be made by direct credit, and

donations over $5 are tax- deductible. For more information,

contact Gary Roberts, principal Hornby Primary

School, phone 349 7238, or Robin Sutton, principal Hornby

High School, phone 349 5396.

Major projecT

to revamp popular club

Three Villa Maria College students have

taken out a national technology competition.

The competition, called the Search for the

Next Tech Girl Superhero is the signature

programme of the Tech Girls Movement.

It involves girls from across the country,

who are matched with a female tech

mentor who meets weekly with them for

12 weeks.

Teams identify a problem in their local

community to solve, then research and

document a solution in a business plan, build

a working app prototype and pitch it in a

public video.

The winners were announced on

September 16.

Villa Maria students Paris Wardle 15, Sarah

Williams and Leonie Stauder, both aged 14,

wanted to encourage more students to get

outside and bike to school, but in the safest

way possible.

Their app is called “Bi-schooling”. The app’s

goal is to make children more confident

when riding a bike on the road.

Villa Maria College students

Leonie Stauder, 14, Paris

Wardle, 15, and Sarah Williams,

14, won a national technology

competition.

To do that, children are taught road rules

through the app and join others to bike as

a group.

“Our app is based on helping the

environment, people’s health and to educate

them about biking.

“We chose this because we noticed that

less children are biking to school, and

getting less exercise,” Paris said.

More bikers will reduce emissions from

cars, she said.

Another team member, Leonie, said it was

exciting to win the national competition.

“We worked hard on developing the app

and making sure it solves the problems we

identified.

“Technology can make a real difference in

our lives, and it’s possible to use technology

to make healthy choices, like biking to

school, and be safe at the same time.”

The team received support from a mentor

from tech-company Intergen, Sarah said.

An exciting two-year redevelopment project

starting in November at the Hornby Workingmen’s

Club will bring the club into the

21st century, general manager Paul Inwood

says.

A major undertaking, the project will involve

the demolition and rebuilding of half the

club’s current premises. Mr Inwood explains:

“The main bar area needed to be earthquake

strengthened, so the board decided

to look at the bigger picture, starting with

the Westview Lounge and Chalmers restaurant

being demolished and rebuilt.”

The rebuilt area will incorporate a large

sports bar on the ground floor and a mezzanine

floor above. There will also be a café

serving cabinet food and opening out to a

deck where people can sit.

“That part of the project will be completed

by November-December 2019,” Mr Inwood

says.

Following that, the main bar will be gutted

and a new restaurant with indoor children’s

playground and corporate area along with

facilities for sporting sections will be built

in that space, taking a further 12 months to

complete.

“The forward thinking of the board has

made the redevelopment possible, with the

club’s investments in local businesses providing

support,” Mr Inwood says.

The redeveloped club will be a multi-functional

facility where families can spend time

in a relaxed environment, with a lot more

opportunities to enjoy the club, he says.

“There is a huge market for us with a

younger generation moving into the Wigram,

Prebbleton and Rolleston areas, but at

the same time we will continue to cater for

our core customer base, the people who

like to come here every day.

uSed to Help HomeleSS

by By Matt SalMonS and anan Zaki

Plastic bags collected from Halswell are being woven into

sleeping mats to help the homeless.

Community support worker Kerry Langley collects bags

and works them into mats. She also teaches others to do

the same.

“I’m just wanting to make a difference.

“It’s warmth, if you don’t have anything underneath you

when you sleep, it’s horrible,” Ms Langley said.

Ms Langley has been a community support worker for 30

years, helping the homeless and troubled youth adjust in

society.

The sleeping mats are woven at Handiscope Aranui, which

is a charity craft group. Ms Langley has been volunteering

at Handiscope since January.

The plastic bag sleeping mat was designed by Handiscope

Aranui volunteers Rose Edwards, Julie Williams and Tina

Worrill.

Mrs Williams said the Handiscope volunteers have

been making the mats for two years and also teach at

Christchurch Prison.

“Two of our volunteers have gone out to the prison

and shown the inmates how to do this so they’re also

creative.”

Each mat has about 6000 plastic bags, Mrs Williams said.

Many people don’t understand the homeless, Ms Langley

said.

“People are not giving anything. At any given time, it

[becoming homeless] could happen to anybody. They’re

very vulnerable.

“They can’t usually go to food banks because they can’t

carry the food,” Ms Langley said.

Ms Langley said there was “great potential” with plastic

bags and is not worried about supermarkets phasing bags

out.

“You can do so much with them. Even with [plastic bag

bans], people must have heaps at home,” she said.

Ms Langley said creating the mats out of plastic bags takes

a lot of practice.

“The supermarket bags are folded and cut into strips, then

tied together. It’s like a ball of wool but it’s a ball a plastic.

“Then we either weave them, use a crochet hook or knit

with big needles,” Ms Langley said.

It takes her two weeks to knit a blanket, scheduling it

around her work as a community support worker.

The Halswell Community Hub served as the main

collection point for the bags.

Halswell Community Project coordinator Kate Cleverly

said the bags had been coming in “thick and fast”.

“We’ve currently got four massive bags full that the

local New World delivered and we normally get about a

wheelie bin full in a week,” she said.

She said the best part of the scheme was that the sleeping

mats went directly to those who needed them most.

Demolition is underway to clear the site for stage 2.

cultural

New school spaces

bring positive response

The first stage of the rebuild at Te Huruhuru

Ao o Horomaka Hornby High is complete,

with about a quarter of the school roll settled

into the new building – and loving it.

As principal Robin Sutton explains, “The response

from the kids has been fantastic. They

love the new spaces and are responding really

positively to their new environment.”

The cleverly designed and versatile layout of

the building sees the incorporation of the

administration areas and specialist learning

spaces with creative arts at the centre, surrounded

by science, technologies and food.

customer service

key to success

Students making use of the learning commons to

study and have group discussions.

There are also learning commons with a range

of spaces where students can study on their

own, have group discussions or take part in

cross-curriculum work, while hauora student

services, a bi-lingual unit and the whare, used

for relevant cultural activities, are also located

in the building.

The building is a manifestation of the school’s

vision to be a “centre of creative excellence

Te puna auaha”, Mr Sutton says, and this will

be continued in the other new buildings being

constructed over the coming months.

A new gymnasium has also been built, incorporating

a full-size basketball court, fitness room

and a classroom that is available for a range of

sports-related activities. The existing gym has

been retained and brought up to specification,

providing the school with a second, full-size

basketball court – basketball and badminton

being two of the school’s main sports, along

with a range of other codes including football

and hockey.

Demolition of other buildings is currently

underway with the contractors busy clearing

the site for stage two of the rebuild, which will

be undertaken next year. The whole project is

due for completion in 2020.

The cultural significance of the area

where Hornby High is located has been

recognised with Ngai Tahu gifting special

names for the different parts of the rebuilt

school.

In recognition of the school’s desire for

students to feel a sense of belonging to

their kahui (cluster, group, block) and for

the spaces to have an identity, Ngai Tahu

suggested using names of birds that can be

found in the Hornby area.

Names put forward were Mohua, (yellowhead),

Riroriro, (grey warbler), Tieke

(saddleback), Pipiwharauroa, (shining

cuckoo) and Korimako/Koparapara (bellbird),

and the students have initially chosen

Tieke, Mohua and Riroriro.

The various departments have also been

LocaL cLuB

a NurserY

for rugby league

talent

Brad Campbell in action during his Premier debut season for the Hornby Panthers.

Hornby Panthers is the biggest rugby league

club in Christchurch, has a long history as

a nursery for talented rugby league players

and has always been very focused on developing

its junior players, says club president

Brent Tomlinson.

Brent says the Panthers’ “Stronger together”

programme has formalised processes

and given structure to the coaching and

mentoring of these players, and this can be

evidenced by the number of talented youth

being associated with Australia NRL and

feeder clubs.

The Hornby Premiers have played in seven

Canterbury Rugby League Grand finals in

the last 10 years, most recently in 2017 and

2018, and with an increasing number of juniors

being ‘blooded’ from the club’s 18-year

team, this pattern looks to continue.

“Eighteens has always been a strong grade

for the club; however, we are very much in a

purple patch at the moment,” Brent says.

“We have Nu Brown with the NRL side

Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs, Tevin

Arona is with NZ Warriors reserve grade,

and Jordan Riki has signed a contract with

the Brisbane Broncos and was recently

named in the junior Kiwis side that will play

later this year.

“Zin Zan Martin is playing for a North

Queensland Cowboys feeder team and

Caius Faatili is also associated with the

Cowboys.”

Hornby’s 18s side recently won the Canterbury

competition led by Captain Caius

Faatili, and the side is full of talented players,

10 of whom have been named in the Canterbury

17s squad and one in the Canterbury

19s. Many of the players are younger

than 18 and can expect to play in the grade

again next year.

According to Premier Coach Jed Lawrie,

they have done a lot of work with the club’s

senior teams and coaching staff and are

transitioning well into senior football.

Up and coming young players Brad Campbell

and Papa Muutu have moved into the

regular playing positions in the premier

squad.

“It’s all about giving back and there is a good

group of senior players really giving back to

our juniors and it pays off in so many ways

for them and the club,” Brent says.

Why we love pasta

Pasta is one of the most versatile foods, from

a fresh traditional spaghetti Bolognese to a

hearty comforting lasagne – it can be the most

convenient meal or a delicious gourmet treat.

seTTING up a raiSed garden

Kiwi Gardener’s Shannon Hunt share tips that will make make springtime growing a breeze.

By all accounts we are in for a highly productive growing season this spring so for those of you who are gingerly

dipping your toes into gardening for the first time and those who are ready to bolt in – boots, overalls and

all – let’s look at tips on how to create a garden that suits your physical and budget requirements.

Step 1: Not too Low, Not too

wide

Make sure the height and width of a new

container garden is built so you don’t have

to bend and you can easily reach from one

side to the other. Wide gardens create

extra work so go for a ‘skinny’ garden and

make it longer to accommodate all your

plantings. Place weed mat on the bottom

and fill the first quarter with small rocks,

gravel and concrete pieces for drainage.

The next quarter can be river sand so as

to reduce the amount of media you need.

Step 2: CLoSer rather thaN

Further

Build your garden as close to your back

door as is possible for easy access.

Along one side of your deck, beside

the pathway from your back door, or

along the side of your house should

work well. Easy access to your plants for

watering, fertilising and harvesting makes

your gardening time a lot more fun.

Step 3: tighter pLaNtiNg/riCher

FeediNg

Always use quality media and organic feed

in raised/container gardens as the plants’

roots have no way of finding more nutrients

other than what they have in the container.

Generally, the better the nutrients in

the soil, the less space is required for

each plant so you can successfully plant

closer together, but make sure you spray

with neem or spraying oil weekly once

your veges and salads start maturing.

Step 4: go higher & iN CirCLeS

To add more space to your garden and

make it ‘pop’ immediately, make or buy

a couple of obelisks (bamboo, wood or

wire) and plant your bean, pea, cucumber

or zucchini seeds at the base then train

the new seedlings around and up the

structure. As well as embellishing the look

of the garden, it gives you extra space,

makes for easy spraying and easy pickings.

Step 5: LoNg haNdLeS For LoNg

BaCkS

To reduce strain on your back when

digging, raking and hoeing, check out

the range of long-handled garden tools

available. Using these can make the

difference between really enjoying your

garden and it being a painful chore.

Step 6: pLaNt oNCe Not twiCe

I have lost count of how many disappointed

newbie gardeners have come to me over

the years to report their seedlings have

been munched right down to soil level

overnight. ‘What could do that?’ they ask,

oblivious to the voracious appetites of

an army of slugs and snails that march

across the garden every night. Always

lay (pet-safe) slug and snail bait at the

same time as you plant your seedlings.

tip:

Learning effective and safe gardening

practices from the beginning is a great

way to ensure that time in your garden

does not become a painful, unpleasant

chore. If you have a big, wide garden,

then a good, strong, lightweight kneeling

pad that morphs into a seat is a brilliant

piece of equipment to have with you in

your garden at all times, no matter what

stage of gardening or life you are at.

Hidden treasures, right

in the centre of Riccarton

Natural Attraction Antiques and

Treasure started life as a hair salon

(Natural Attraction Hair Stylists)

over 30 years ago and has gradually

transitioned over to an antique shop

with four registered dealers - Sue, Geoff,

Steve and Uma – providing expertise

and unique things. Part of its ongoing

charm is that two of the dealers are still

also hairdressers so some days you will

find clients having their hair done in the

salon section of the shop while others

are browsing the eclectic displays of

jewellery, curios, fabrics and porcelain.

They cover a wide range of traditional

antiques, decorative items and plenty

of interesting collectables making it the

perfect place if you want a special gift

for any occasion or have been searching

for that piece to complete a collection.

Prices are reasonable and range from

$5-$500 with new stock brought in

every week. If they don’t have what you

are looking for, they are always happy

to try and source specific pieces, taking

their treasure-hunt far and wide. You

can also try their main shop, The Ferry

Antique Centre at 282 Ferry Road,

Waltham.

Located at the Windmill Centre, 184

Clarence Street, there is easy parking at

the door and the shop is near to the wellknown

“Ed Hopper” coffee shop - they

recommend that customers check out

the coffees and legendary date scones.

creaTe BeTTer GarDeNs

WitH tHe team at garden box

New owner, new name, new products but

still the same great standards - change is in

the air for Garden Box, formerly Parkhouse

Garden Supplies.

New owners, Janine and Jaimie McNabb,

are committed to supplying Christchurch

gardeners, landscapers and builders with

terrific service and a huge range of garden

and landscape supplies.

When Janine and Jaimie took over from

Noel Dick, who retired in August after 25

years of hard work establishing the business,

they changed the name to Garden Box

as they hadn’t been located on Parkhouse

Road for years, and taking inspiration from

the shipping containers, or “boxes” used for

the shop and offices on- site.

Current customers will see plenty of familiar

faces as the existing staff have all stayed

on to form Team Garden Box. The theme

of a family business will continue as Melissa,

Noel’s daughter remains the Operations

Manager. Janine and Jaimie are encouraging

their boys to get off the xBox to work at

Garden Box.

Now firmly established in the easy-to

-access location at Lunns Roads, just off

Curletts Road, customers can select from

Canterbury’s largest selection of aggregates,

gravels, mulches, decorative barks and

organic composts and much more. New

products are being added – follow them on

Facebook for alerts and specials.

Garden Box is set up to supply as little a

single bag of sawdust to the garden requirements

for a subdivision. Having a small fleet

of delivery trucks and hire trailers they can

get product to you 7 days a week.

Team Garden Box see service as a priority

making sure that customers have the right

products to “create better gardens”. Open

FoLLoWme

The colour yellow

Add a bit of zest to your wardrobe.

Regardless of the weather outside, yellow clothing will

brighten everyone’s mood. Barrister and celebrity style

icon Amal Clooney has been showing us how it’s done, so

take note. This particular colour looks best in the form of a

mid- to long-length dress, no matter what time of the year.

A wooden clutch and jewellery to match will complement

your new favourite dress perfectly. Sales of yellow dresses

and blouses have risen significantly worldwide, so now’s the

perfect time to get your claws on one.

Zodiac-inspired sTyle

It’s written in the stars.

From nail art to statement handbags, the zodiac trend

has rocketed back into the limelight and we’re over the

moon about it. Zodiac-inspired jewellery has really taken

our fancy and there’s plenty on the market. Whilst trends

come and go, your zodiac sign is pretty personal, so we’re

definitely in favour of investing in a piece of jewellery

that represents yours. Astrology may or may not be

something you’re interested in, but either way, it looks

damn good. We think the world of Givenchy’s offering.

Trench coaTs

Fully practical, fully timeless.

The trench coat trend is one that comes back time

after time, and every time it does, we wonder how

we ever lived without it. Naturally, trench coats and

Burberry go hand in hand, but a plethora of other

brands have upped their game considerably, so there

are plenty of options from which to choose. Wide

ranges of colours are available, but we’re not sure you

should stray from that classic camel shade. Pair yours

with denim or a maxi skirt and make sure the one you

pick is waterproof; a damp trench coat isn’t a good

look.

BelT Bags

For hands-free style

And we’re not talking about the bulky Velcro kind

tourists wear on holiday. The new era of belt bags are

sleek, subtle and stylish. From high-waisted jeans and

a simple T-shirt during the day to your favourite dress

in the evening, they’re perfectly capable of upgrading

any outfit. We’d choose one in a rich shade of olive or

navy, but if you’re looking to make more of a statement,

there are piles of brightly coloured and embellished

options available, although picking just one will likely be

an issue. Bank card, phone and lipstick all in one safe,

rIccarToN HIGH scHooL

to celebrate 60tH Jubilee

Riccarton High School is celebrating a significant milestone

next month – its 60th Jubilee, and to mark the occasion, the

school is holding two events on October 27.

From 2pm-4pm there will be guided tours of the school,

which will include video presentations and displays put

together by teachers and students.

The tours will start from the school hall, and will be an

opportunity for former teachers and students to get a

snapshot of the changes and developments in teaching and

learning that have been happening at the school. Interested

locals are also welcome to join the tours.

The main event of the Jubilee celebration will be a social

evening at the Riccarton Raceway function rooms, starting

at 7pm, with around 200 former students, teachers and staff

expected to attend.

“This will be a great chance for us to celebrate the school’s

anniversary and to see old friends,” board chairman Alan

Aitken says.

“The school has been very future focused, but we are also

encouraging people to remember things from the past, from

their days at the school.”

A former student himself, having attended from 1975-1979,

Alan says the school has come a long way over the past

60 years, and is “what you would hope for as a much more

diverse 21st-century high school”.

“The school is moving into exciting times for all sorts of

positive reasons. Major reconstruction will hopefully be

happening over the next three years, though it is still in the

early planning stages.

“It’s positive in terms of education, too, especially with

changing technology. And the diversity in our school is

something to celebrate – we have over 50 different ethnic

groups and that gives our school enormous strength,” Alan

says.

The school received positive comments during a recent

ERO visit, which was pleasing, Alan says.

“We see Riccarton High School as a place where young

people can flourish, which is what a school should be. Coming

back as an adult, with a different perspective, I have been

encouraged by the professionalism of the teaching staff,

who are all highly committed and focused on preparing our

students well for the future.”

up-To-DaTe HeaLTH care

in an atmoSpHere of old-faSHioned cHarm

After almost three unbroken decades at

Church Corner, Riccarton Clinic continues

to provide GP services and urgent medical

care, treating thousands of patients every

year. In fact, it is the third busiest medical

facility in Christchurch.

That growth has led to them purchasing and

re-modelling a nearby residential property

into a general practice suite, which, according

to the clinic’s General Manager Mark

Darvill “is (deliberately) quite different from

our existing, purpose-built facility.” The midcentury

building, located at 20 Brake Street

is full of charm, period features and has a

calm presence.

Remodelled to be more suitable as GP

rooms, the original wallpaper and Axminster

carpeting have been retained where possible

and beautiful rimu flooring has also been

exposed and lovingly restored. To add to the

ambience, the Riccarton Clinic team have

sourced desks, beds and other items of furniture

that fit with the peaceful, period style.

Mark comments that, “it’s like stepping back

in time. The look and feel of the property

invokes a calmness and wonder in everyone

who visits.”

There are four carparks and a disabled

parking space, ramped access at the rear,

and additional parking nearby. The gardens

are beautiful with many original roses (some

over 50 years old), established camelias and

other shrubs. Indeed, the garden has even

gained a Community Board award.

The facilities at Riccarton Clinic’s Church

Corner site, which deals with both scheduled

appointments, and urgent care without

appointments between 8am and 8pm, were

purpose-built to provide health care in a

modern, clinical setting. In contrast, the GP

rooms at 20 Brake Street offer up-to-date

health care, 9am to 5pm, in an atmosphere

of old-fashioned charm.

To book an appointment at either site, or to

supporT For aLLerGY-suFFerers

in tHe garden city at laSt

The weather is already getting warmer and the days are

getting longer, but not all of us are looking forward to

the summer. For hay fever sufferers, spring and summer

can mean sore, irritated eyes; sneezing and blocked

noses; sinus infections; tiredness and poor sleep. All

that can add up to time off from school and work, and

reduced performance when sufferers do attend. When

you factor in that one out of every five New Zealanders

suffers from allergic rhinitis, that’s quite an impact.

However, help is at hand thanks to the South Island

Allergy Service which is based at Riccarton Clinic Medical

Centre at 6 Yaldhurst Road. Their team of highlyexperienced

and qualified specialists offer a technique

called desensitisation or immunotherapy, which encourages

the body to build up tolerance to whatever sparks

the allergic reaction. The first step is skin prick testing,

an almost-painless process to identify exactly which allergen

sets off your reactions. Then, the desensitisation

process begins, usually at home and as early as possible

before the hay fever season begins.

However, the Allergy Service team uses this technique

to treat many more concerns as well as hay fever. Food

allergies and intolerances are common and can be

life-threatening. Some symptoms such as hives, eczema,

nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea are obvious, but other

symptoms, especially in children, can be confused as

general eczema, reflux or colic. Testing and accurate

diagnoses can put a parents’ mind at rest, and immunotherapy

can begin a gentle process to reduce the

allergic reaction.

Other allergens can be found in the air that we breathe.

Dander from the much-loved family pet, dust mites and

mould can result in rashes, swollen eyes and asthma.

Trying to avoid these triggers is a great solution, but not

always possible, so again, accurate diagnoses will help

determine just what is the cause and what can be done

SOUTHERN VIEW

Price – Toyota Prius Prime, $48,490

Dimensions – Length, 4645mm; width, 1760mm; height, 1470mm

Configuration – Four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, 1798cc, 90kW, 142Nm, continuously variable automatic.

Performance – 0-100km/h, 11.1sec

Fuel usage – 1l/100km

by ROSS KIDDIE

When industry analysts predict the cost of petrol will rise

towards $3 a litre, you can almost guarantee that will be a high

probability.

The surging cost of fuel also translates to a buyer focus

towards hybrid and electric vehicles, manufacturing companies

are fast tracking development of fossil fuel alternatives and

already New Zealand has a strong focus on vehicles which use

renewable energy.

Of course, it’s no surprise that Toyota have a strong foothold

on hybrid development, it (and Lexus) has several hybrid

models listed here including the legendary Prius, the car which

kicked off the hybrid revolution.

Until now, Prius new has been a conventional hybrid; Toyota

New Zealand did introduce the Japan-sourced pre-owned

plug-in model a couple of years ago, but it’s only now that

plug-in Prius models are available new at the dealership, and it

is badged Prius Prime.

The Prime lands here at $48,490, with $1500 buying you into

leather. The evaluation car was the cloth-trimmed model, and

the first thing you notice is that it still has that easy-to-drive

operation that we have come to know in Prius, it is intuitive

and the hybrid system is still very much intact, the plug-in

facility is an extra, which is there to offer electric-only travel.

When battery energy runs low, the four-cylinder 1.8-litre

petrol mechanism cuts in to work in the way that hybrids have

now become familiar, eliminating any range anxiety.

The Prius Prime is rated with a 1-litre per 100km weighted

fuel usage average. Toyota also claims a 63km range on electric

power only, and with the petrol power back-up there’s no

need to feel range anxiety, the transition is seamless. There’s

also a 4hr 30min charge time for the Prius Prime.

The Prius also has console-mounted buttons to alternate

between the two power sources at the driver’s discretion, but

the Prius in this form is intuitive, it does things in its own way,

the driver isn’t really aware what is going on under the bonnet.

In mechanical terms, the four-cylinder, 1.8-litre engine is

traditional Prius fare, it develops 77kW and 142Nm, taking

into account an extra 18kW is available through battery

power. Nevertheless, these outputs are modest, and it must be

remembered that the plug-in Prius wants to use electric drive,

the petrol engine is almost just a back-up.

Drive is sent through the front wheels through a continuously

variable automatic transmission, that adds to the seamless

process, the Prius is smooth and acceleration is instant,

although it’s not quick, an 11.1sec time to reach 100km/h from

a standstill is pretty average.

However, Prius owners aren’t about performance, it’s a

case of making the most of every precious drop of fuel, and

with electric charging the Prius Prime is the quintessential

commuter.

Even though it’s at its best working in that role, I took the

evaluation car on my usual highway loop, the roads below the

Malvern Hills are a mix of long straights interspersed with

some free-flowing corners.

Toyota has developed a new platform for Prius which

promotes a more engaging driving feel. In terms of handling,

the Prius feels taut and a lot more nimble than I remember

previous versions to be. The spring and damper rates are

firmish, but not so much that comfort is jeopardised.

It must be said the Prius in this form is a lot more affordable

that it has ever been before, yet there hasn’t been a dropoff

in specification. All of the usual Toyota ingredients are on

offer, niceties such as heated seats, adaptive cruise control and

head-up display are just some of the many items that are fitted

as standard specification. Of course, the Prius is safe, its fivestar

safety rating is attributable to the Toyota Safety Sense of

electronic features which keep the vehicle out of trouble in the

first instance.

In New Zealand there are several plug-in, electric-only models

in our new car market, and there are many others available

pre-owned through direct imports from Japan, and if you take

into account the multitude of hybrid models available new, then

the Prius Prime won’t have everything its own way.

However, it’s nice to buy new, and to know that the

battery technology won’t let you down, there’s an eightyear/160,000km

battery warranty. It’s good to know that not

only are you doing something for the environment, the fuel

savings alone will go a long way towards that initial purchase

cost.

REVITALIZE YOUR HEARING

Do you or your loved ones have difficulty with your hearing?

Hearing loss is an invisible condition

which sneaks up on you very gradually.

Overcoming hearing loss has never

been easier with new, almost invisible,

digital hearing devices. Our friendly,

The team at Hear Again Christchurch

Discovering you, or your loved ones have

a problem with your ears or hearing can

be very concerning. A quick search on the

internet can conjure up many warnings of

the possible underlying health issues which

can cause hearing loss; but in reality the

most common causes of hearing issues are

wax build up in the ear canal or age related

hearing loss.

Whatever your ear or hearing problem

is, the Team at Hear Again in the Hub,

Hornby, will put any concerns you may

have quickly to bed. They take the time

to listen, get to know you and fully assess

how they can help. Using the very latest

micro-suction, Ear-wax can be removed

simply and comfortably; usually providing an

instant result: with many delighted clients

proclaiming, “that’s wonderful, I can Hear

Again!” as the world opens up to them

again.

Age related hearing loss creeps up on you

very slowly, so this may something your

family and friends notice before you do.

Usually starting as a reduction in clarity

of speech, this can cause problems when

watching TV, or when trying to listen to

conversation in a social environment. If

you find yourself saying, “Pardon?” often,

or nodding in agreement when you have

not heard clearly, these are tell-tale signs.

Hear Again offer a FREE Initial Hearing

Assessment which will quickly establish if

you need further assistance. And with high

quality hearing aids available for only $495,

fitted and personalized (assuming you are

eligible for a $1022.22 government subsidy

for hearing aids), they can also allay any

concerns about the costs involved.

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

6 - 18 October, with the team departing for Argentina on 3

October.

If you are keen to follow Juliana's progress in the competition

you can do so through the NZ Team App, plus there will also

be daily highlights packages on Sky and Prime in the evenings.

You will find the NZ Team App in the App Store under NZ

Team.

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

is sure to sell out so get your tickets quickly from the

student office.

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.

Table Tennis National

success

The New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Championships were

held in Hamilton this year. Our Boys team won the Boys' Open

Teams title again this year, defending their title from last year.

Our Girls team came 3rd in the Boys' Open Teams Grade,

after losing to our Boys' team in the semi-final. This was the

only game our Girls' team lost, as they beat all the other boys’

teams in the competition.

pLaN Your NexT HoLIDaY

WitH expert travel team

Time to book your tickets to Japan for the next Rugby World Cup with House

of Travel Hornby.

It has been a really exciting 2018 for House of Travel Hornby,

says business owner Paula Waldeck, and what has made

it so exciting has been customer response to the expanded

premises, and having new members join the team.

“Our customers are loving the bigger space we have, and

the relaxed atmosphere at House of Travel Hornby,” Paula

says.

She and her team of experienced travel consultants suggest

that now is a good time to start planning for holidays in

2019.

“Just about the whole world is on sale,” Paula says, “so

people can really get good value on their holidays. We are

finding that cruising holidays in particular – both ocean and

river – in Europe and Asia are proving very popular.

“Japan is also one of the hot destinations, and we are lucky

to have two Japan specialists on the team. Kirsty lived in

Japan for three years, and Christine has also spent time

there. They have the knowledge and expertise to create individualised

itineraries for customers. There is also a House

of Travel escorted tour of Japan leaving from Christchurch

next year. By being escorted, it just takes the stress out of

your adventure.”

Rugby World Cup fever will be starting to build soon, and

for fans that want to see it live in Japan in September and

October 2019, HOT Hornby, as an agent for All Blacks

World Cup packages, can make all the bookings.

“Flights will be available in the next couple of months, and

we can book customers for the full tournament, or segments

of it, such as the semi-finals and finals if they wish,”

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.

Olivia, Emilie, Janine and Holly

Altenburg-Carey with Bishop Paul

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.

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.

Ironman ready to take on

world champs in Hawaii

• By Matt Salmons

MIKE PHILLIPS is ready for

his biggest challenge yet – the

Ironman World Championships

in Hawaii.

Phillips left on Sunday to allow

himself three weeks to acclimatise

and scout the track ahead of

the October 13 event.

The Mt Pleasant athlete qualified

for the championships after

taking home silver at Ironman

Barcelona in October last year,

his first ever Ironman event.

His finishing time for the

3.8km swim, 180km cycle and

42km run of 7hr 52min 50sec

made him the second fastest

Kiwi ironman ever.

The Hawaii course looks “brutal”,

Phillips said.

It includes an ocean swim

and a coastal cycle track against

SPORTS

severe wind and baking sunshine

before finishing with a run

through a lava field.

“Apparently there’s lava on

either side of the track.

“You’ve got to experience it to

know what it’s like.”

He said he believes he will be

able to finish in the top 10 if he

has a good day.

“It would be cool to have a podium

finish, but in your first year

it’s probably a bit hard.”

Phillips has spent the last two

years as a professional triathlete

after leaving his job as a structural

engineer to pursue the sport.

“I’m not sure how long the

body will hold out so I’ll make

the most of it.”

As a professional, Phillips

competed in more than 10 events

each year, most of them overseas,

with prize money providing

enough income to keep him

going.

The transient lifestyle could

be “a bit of a tax,” he said. But he

formed a group of friends who he

regularly competed against.

“You can actually make some

quite good friendships at the

events.”

He trained for a minimum of

30 hours every week, swimming

25km, running 100km and cycling

500km.

The transition from training

as an amateur to training as a

professional had not been a”huge

jump” as he now had more time

for recovery.

“Even after a day at work you’re

pretty tired and I found I was

getting sick more and injuring

myself more when I was training

and working.”

GRUELLING: Mike Phillips

is in Hawaii for the Ironman

World Championships on

October 13.

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

member.

“Treat them like they are your mother,’’

he says.

Carrying the Trevor Crowe name also

means putting it right.

‘’We don’t expect things to go wrong,

but problems will be sorted out and the

customer is always told what to expect as

the process unfolds, and the cost will be

presented to the customer well before the

car is picked up.’’

For all your motoring needs or to

change your vehicle, the CroweSport

name means quality and reassurance.

“It’s about knowing how to do the right

thing by the customer,’’ Trevor says.

Moncks Bay slipway

costs $36,500

• By Matt Salmons

THE NEW Moncks Bay slipway

is installed at a cost of $36,500

to ratepayers.

The cost came as a pleasant

surprise to Christchurch Yacht

Club president Lindsay Ebert,

who said he had worried about

how much it drew from public

coffers.

“It’s not as bad as I’d thought,

I thought it would be a lot

more,” Mr Ebert said.

“Never mind, we’ve got a good

slip out of it, and so does the

public.”

The total cost included the

panels’ manufacture, site

excavation, fencing, removal of

excess soil, installing geotextile

and concrete haunch support

timbers, pumping grout into the

void and tidying up the site.

The concrete panel slipway

was installed to replace a trial

fibreglass slipway which was too

small for the site.

The breakdown of the $16,000

cost was $3000 for the panels,

$3000 for the installation and

$10,000 to remove the old,

damaged slipway.

“That cost would have been

incurred regardless,” Mr Moses

REPLACEMENT: The new

slipway cost $36,500 to

said. The fibreglass panels

were now being used on an old

timber ramp at Windsports

Park to extend its life.

Questions raised on the

frequency of pier cleaning

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MESS ON the New Brighton

Pier has prompted questions into

how often it is cleaned.

The Coastal -Burwood Community

Board requested the

pier’s cleaning regime from city

council staff at a recent meeting.

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said he brought the issue

up after he noticed it was “quite

messy” one

day when he

was out on

the pier.

“There was

quite a lot of

blood around

and it was just

Tim Sintes

unsightly,” he

said.

Mr Sintes said while he is an

ex-fisherman and he wouldn’t

worry too much himself, he was

thinking more about how other

visitors would view the pier.

The city council’s head of

parks Andrew Rutledge told

Pegasus Post the pier is swept

and washed down daily along

with the bins emptied.

Annually, $70,000 goes towards

the regular maintenance

and cleaning of the pier.

Mr Rutledge said the complaints

over fishermen using the

pier have been minimal with less

than six in the past year.

He said there is no update or

plans to permanently ban fishermen

from using the pier.

What’s On

Entertainment

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

musicians. Vocal accompaniment

will be provided by a gospel choir

and male quartet.

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.

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

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.

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.
