TALENTED: Burnside gymnasts Luke, Sian and Cole Stevens are set to compete at the national championships in Tauranga

tomorrow.

Siblings a triple threat at nationals

• By Jacob Page

THREE BURNSIDE siblings

are putting the final touches

on their artistic gymnastics

routines ahead of the national

champs tomorrow.

Christchurch School of

Gymnastics members Luke,

16, and twins Cole and Sian

Stevens, 14, will compete against

the country’s best at the New

Zealand championships in

Tauranga which start tomorrow.

The siblings have been

competing in gymnastics for

almost nine years.

The trio said their QE II Park

training base was like a

second home.

“We probably spend as much

time there as we do at home,”

Luke said.

“This is where our friends are

and it’s where we have always

had fun,” Cole said.

Luke and Cole train for 19

hours a week and Sian trains up

to 30 hours a week.

Due to Sian’s heavy training

commitments, she attends

Prosilio for 3.5 hours a day,

which is part of the Ao Tawhiti

School. It allows her to

study around her training

schedule.

Luke and Cole attend

Burnside High School.

Board

members

clash over

breach of

confidence

• By Ashleigh Monk

PAPANUI-INNES Community

Board members have clashed

over a breach of confidence.

Member John Stringer told

Nor’West News that he called

a private meeting last week

to address the board over his

concerns about the Main North

Rd bus priority proposal.

He said the contents of the

meeting were confidential.

However, community board

chairwoman Ali Jones revealed to

Nor’West News what the meeting

was about.

Ms Jones said because Mr

Stringer was new to local politics,

he may struggle to understand

how the process works, which left

Mr Stringer “disappointed”.

The community board has

recommended the installation

of bus lanes along parts of Main

North Rd from Harewood

Rd to Grassmere St, with an

amendment to exclude a stretch

from Harewood Rd to Winston

Ave.

The proposal, which will be

presented to the city council later

this month, would remove some

on-street parking along Main

North Rd, and make northward

bus times faster.

from the editor’s desk

THERE’S NOTHING too unusual for

siblings to turn up in the same sports team.

But there’s a special touch about the

Stevens’ who compete in the national

gymnastics championships starting in

Tauranga tomorrow (see page 1).

And there’s a set of twins amongst them too.

Reporter Jacob Page caught up with them late last week and

by all counts they’re great kids.

They’ve been competing for nine years.

The key to their success is how much time they train each

week.

They also coach young gymnasts, so no doubt we’ll be hearing

a lot more of the Stevens’ as the years roll by.

And more today (page 3) on the dust-up in the Anglican

church over same sex marriages.

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Ashleigh Monk

ANGLICAN Reverend Andy

Carley of St Paul’s in Papanui

has revealed he will help

establish a breakaway diocese

in the wake of the same-sex

marriage blessings saga.

He said nine clergy from seven

parishes in Canterbury had

resigned and would start to form

the diocese, separate from the

synod of the Anglican Church

of Aotearoa, New Zealand and

Polynesia.

The parishes are St John’s

Latimer Square, St Stephen’s in

Shirley, St John’s in Woolston,

St Saviour’s and St Nicholas in

Barrington, St Christopher’s

in Avonhead and St Mark’s in

Rakaia.

“We will establish a new extraprovincial

Anglican diocese,

one recognised by the majority

of the world’s Anglicans, but is

separate from the current New

Zealand Anglican diocese,” he

said.

The Anglican Diocese

of Christchurch and the

synod of the Anglican Church

of Aotearoa, New Zealand and

Polynesia declined to comment.

St John’s Latimer Square, St

Stephen’s, St John’s, St Saviour’s

and St Nicholas, St Christopher’s

and St Mark’s were contacted for

Breakaway diocese under way

In Brief

ISSUE: Reverend Andy Carley is planning on joining with

other clergy from across the country to form a new Anglican

diocese.

comment but did not respond.

St Paul’s parishioner John

Stringer said that while he

would not join the new

diocese, he supported those who

would.

“I support my friend and vicar

Andy and the hundreds, if not

thousands, of vicars and Anglicans

leaving the denomination,”

he said.

He compared the issue to having

a New Zealand passport, and

therefore abiding by the “laws of

the land.”

“That does not mean we agree

with all the laws of the land, like

same-gender marriage, or the

drinking age, or abortion,” he

said.

“If the [general synod] pushes

us too far theologically against

conscience, we may be forced

later to ‘leave NZ’ and ‘rescind

our passports’.”

The St Paul’s congregation

voted in September on whether

to follow Rev Carley in leaving

the church, with 70 per cent voting

to stay even if they did not

agree with same-sex marriage

blessings.

“I understand that leaving a

church that you have been a part

of for many decades is a terribly

hard thing to do, especially

when you’re elderly,” Rev Carley

said.

The Anglican synod voted

to allow same-sex marriage

blessings in May, which Rev

Carley said was “a step in the

wrong direction.”

WITNESS SOUGHT

Police are appealing for a witness

to come forward following an

attempted abduction in Ilam last

week. At around 5.50am on Friday

September 21, a man tried to abduct

a woman jogger at the entrance to

Ray Blank Park on Maidstone Rd.

The woman fought off the man, and

a member of the public driving past

stopped to help her. The person who

stopped to help then followed the

man to a street nearby. Police went

to the address and located the man.

A 27-year-old was arrested, and has

been charged with abduction and

assault with intent to injure. He has

been remanded in custody and will

appear in court on October 4. Police

are still keen to speak with the

person who stopped to assist in this

incident. Anyone can get in touch

by phoning Christchurch Police on

363 7400.

OUTDOOR GYM

Burnside residents will be able

to work out in the sun as the

installation of outdoor gym

equipment is completed. The

gym has been set up at Burnside

Park, and was opened on Sunday.

The equipment included a sit-up

bench, push-up bars, a vertical

ladder, stairs, a cross-trainer and

a chin-up bar. The gym is free to

use.

Shirley trust makes the most of new

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 is 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

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.

One of the groups, Knitter

Knatter, has been coming to the

centre for 11 years.

Group member Mary Duff

said the knitters started off

making garments for orphanages

in Romania, Russia and South

Africa.

“We’ve sent 1000 garments out

this year,” she said.

“When the earthquakes

happened, we decided we’d do

it for Christchurch. We knit

things for the children’s wards at

the hospital, and we do lots for

the homeless as well.”

Children are our present

Neighbourhood

Trust manager

Ginny Larsen

talks about

what children

in Mairehau

would like to

see in their

community

– from whanau hang-out

spaces to colourful murals

OFTEN YOU hear the phrase,

‘children are our future’.

I’d like to challenge that statement

by saying, ‘children are our

present’ and yet they are rarely

asked for their opinions, hopes

and dreams.

Through my work with Neighbourhood

Trust and Te Ora Hou

in the Children’s Voices project,

I’ve found that children have

important things to tell us.

They told us they wanted

colour and vibrancy in their environment;

they wanted people to

be kind to each other; they wanted

people to take responsibility

for things like their dogs and

rubbish; they wanted more family

friendly areas where whanau can

hang out together.

These are simple things, and yet

imagine a world where this vision

became a reality. Wouldn’t we all

love that?

I firmly believe that if we put

children at the centre of our

planning, our city will be a place

KIDS CHOICE: The mural at the entrance of Mairehau Primary

School. Pupils chose to have the school’s motto – Respect,

Believe, Aspire, Achieve – on the mural.

in which people will want to

live – that what is good for our

children, is good for adults too.

An example of this is the colourful

mural painted on a shop

wall at the entrance to Mairehau

Primary School.

It was an idea the children had,

and our community endorsed,

that is now a positive space for

everyone.

It was the children who asked

for their school motto – Respect,

Believe, Aspire, Achieve – to be

part of the mural. What great

words to have emblazoned on the

wall of a hang-out space.

When we take the time to ask

children what they think, we are

often amazed at how astute they

are.

I remember asking children

from our after-school programme

to help choose some

play/exercise style equipment.

Some that we thought looked

cool, they were able to say, ‘yeah,

but they get slippery and no-one

uses them much after a while’.

They preferred some of the

wooden equipment as it could

be used in a number of different

ways imaginatively.

How many mistakes could be

averted by simply asking the end

user?

So next time your organisation

is project planning, how about

including children on the team?

You’ll be glad you did.

Capsule document opened

• By Ashleigh Monk

Tuesday October 2 2018

A MESSAGE in a bottle found in

the St Albans time capsule has been

opened.

The time capsule was opened last

week after being tucked away for

nearly 100 years.

It was buried in 1920 when the

St Albans Public Library was constructed.

The library was renamed the

St Albans Community Resource

Centre in 1997, and was demolished

in 2011 as a result of earthquake

damage.

The letter detailed the history of

the library, and noted the presidents

of the St Albans Mutual Improvement

Association, which managed

the library, dating from 1867 to

1920.

Copies of The Lyttelton Times

and The Press from the 1920s were

among the artefacts found in the

capsule along with the letter.

The capsule was opened by the

Papanui-Innes Community Board,

pupils from St Albans

Primary and St Albans Catholic

School, and community representatives

from the St Albans History

group, St Albans Residents’ Association

and St Albans Business

Association.

Papanui-Innes Community Board

chairwoman Ali Jones said the

board would take suggestions for

things to be put in a new capsule.

Plan to stop flooding

chairwoman Ali Jones said

city council staff would decide

“From what we understand,

the plantings will mitigate

flooding and make sure

that any boggy areas are

dealt with,” she said.

She said walkways

would also be looked

into as a way of

beautifying the reserve.

“It’s a similar case to

getting their feet wet.”

ADVERTORIAL

The Art of the Arborist

So often we turn up to a property

and the trees have been attacked by

someone, with little to no knowledge

of the needs of the tree. Unfortunately,

this can severely decrease the life

expectancy of the trees.

Tree pruning is both an art and a

science. An arborist’s job is to assess

trees on their individual merit and

determine what approach is needed for

each tree.

The art of pruning means an arborist

can improve a tree’s aesthetics and

structural integrity, whilst making the

tree safe and manageable. When on a

job, there are occasions where we do

advocate that a tree needs removing,

either because it has been pruned

poorly in the past, or the tree would

need severe pruning to reach the

owners desired outcome.

The science behind tree pruning

draws on knowledge, experience and

expertise to ensure that tree health

remains a top priority.

Every tree needs to be pruned

differently, for example, you can’t prune

a Maple the same as you would an Oak.

Sometimes there are options available

rather than simply topping a tree.

An arborist may suggest elevating the

lower canopy to let light in underneath,

removing deadwood and thinning

(increases airflow around tree and

increasing light to still keep shape

and health of tree), or possibly end

weighting (removing weight) from

selected limbs.

Our favourite clients are the ones that ask

us if it were my garden, what would I do

to the trees. This gives us the freedom to

immerse ourselves in the garden and get

the best result for the client.

Often, we like to do the primary

work (obvious work) first, and then

the secondary work becomes more

apparent.

Consulting an arborist or tree surgeon

and investing in your trees can add

value to a property, not to mention

enjoyment to the owner. Alternatively,

trees that are poorly looked after could

have the potential to become a liability

for the owner.

Disaster locator earns Rangi student award

A BUDDING entrepreneur has

been recognised at the national

GirlBoss awards.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

student Tulsi Lathia, 17, took out

the coveted innovation award at a

ceremony in Auckland last week.

Tulsi is one of six young

women who received a GirlBoss

award after more than 400 nominations

flooded in from around

the country.

Each winner received $1000

with the supreme winner receiving

$2000.

Tulsi collaboratively invented

a device that helps locate people

after a natural disaster, and a second

device that is a fire detection,

evacuation and control system.

“Winning this award means

so much to me. I want to use

the award as a magnet to pull in

young women like me who may

have felt isolated with their passions.

I want to empower them

to step up, take charge and make

things happen,” she said.

Tulsi said young women are

not always made aware of the opportunities

open to them.

“At Rangi Ruru I feel able

to extend myself and be supported

to follow my dreams, but

sometimes some of us can be

unaware of our potential and underestimate

the power we have. I

believe this award will enable me

to help change this and positively

influence young women. I hope

that I can inspire, motivate and

empower future change-makers.”

As part of her application to

GirlBoss, Tulsi’s submission

outlined projects she has been

involved in.

“I wrote about the Paradigm

Challenge, which was something

I worked on with a team of four

– two of us here in New Zealand

and two in India. I wanted to

show that there are no barriers of

age, distance and time to innovative

collaboration. It all depends

on how much passion and drive

you have,” she said.

“Self-motivation was crucial,

as without being face-to-face

with each other, we had to stay

connected and on task. Our combined

enthusiasm for science,

technology and innovation for

good helped us grow as people

who were more open to share

St Bede’s students run

for cancer cause

• By Ashleigh Monk

LAST WEEK about 160 St Bede’s

College students put on their

trainers and ran in aid of teen

cancer.

This was the school’s eighth

Run For A Life event, in which

students run across the South

Island to raise money for

CanTeen.

Event organiser Rachel

Pitcaithly said the run aimed to

not only raise money for young

cancer victims, but also raise

awareness.

“There’s so many of us that

have been affected by cancer

in different ways, shapes and

forms,” she said.

“CanTeen have become real

family members to us. What

is great is that they look after

teenagers with cancer, but they

also look after teenagers who

might have a sibling or parent

they’ve lost to cancer – and

unfortunately that’s a few of our

boys.”

groups of students running

about 5km at a time in

relay-style, with each student

covering about 25km a day for

five days.

“The idea was to do something

really hard to give us a look

into what it must be like having

cancer as part of your everyday

life.”

The school had raised more

than $80,000 by the time the run

kicked off on Wednesday.

“The support has been

amazing. There are a lot of

families around the South Island

who have committed to giving us

meals and accommodation . . . it’s

is to people’s hearts.”

“We hope we can keep working

“An old cobber of mine was

be interested in doing something

for them,” he said.

“A hundred and thirty hats,

and they were happy as Larry.”

The club undertakes fundraising

selling ‘entertainment books’,

A SPECIALLY programmed

robot has once again led Selwyn

House School pupils to success.

Year 6 pupils Charlotte

Leatherland, Honor Forbes,

Lily Henderson-Walshe, Masha

Pospolitak and Mel Leatherland

finished second in the junior

theatre category of the national

Robocup competition.

The robot, which the girls programmed

themselves, performed

a pyramid-building play.

Year 8 pupils Reed McHugh,

Jessika Sanders, Kate Brown and

Lucy Eyre-Walker won the senior

rescue section of the regional

Robocup competition.

The senior rescue required the

pupils to programme a robot to

follow a broken line.

The year 8 group battled it

out in the national competition

against 17 other teams and,

while they did not place, teacher

Simon Christie said they did an

“amazing” job.

ROSETTA BROWN has

developed a passion for the

environment – and that passion

has earned her a place as one of

three finalists in the Keep New

Zealand Beautiful Awards.

The Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

student is a finalist in the young

legends category of the annual

awards, which is for young Kiwis

who have been recognised for

their contribution towards creating

a sustainable future for New

Zealand.

Rosetta, 16, is an integral member

of the Rangi Ruru sustainability

executive, a leader of the

school’s environment club and

an editor of Bloom, a well-being

journal, that highlights sustainable,

healthy habits to help follow

students feel good and function

well.

She has also played a part in

establishing source separation

of waste at Rangi and the coordination

of the school’s reuse

depot over the past two years.

These initiatives have allowed

Rangi to significantly reduce

waste to landfill – by 58 per

cent within the school community

and 62 per cent within the

school’s boarding community

– and helped the school become

carbon neutral in 2017.

“It is important to me that we

don’t just talk about sustainable

behaviours, but that we get stuck

in and make a difference through

actions and a collective approach.

We all need to consider our role

as consumers and think carefully

about the life-cycle and impact

of products we buy. In doing this

we can be proactive in disrupting

the traditional take-make-waste

model,” Rosetta said.

McKendry says there

were many reasons why

men and women chose not

to referee, such as work

and family commitments

or feeling like they didn’t

know enough about the

game.

Koini Buli, one of the

four female referees in

Canterbury, said being

a referee was tough. She

still gets nervous before a

match, especially “if it’s going

to be a hell of a game.”

She says many people

didn’t understand that a

referee was actually an

athlete. Buli trains two to

three times a week with

a mixture of cardio and

won two gold, two silver

and four bronze medals.

His mum Traci said after

he won the medals, it gave

him a boost of confidence

which lasted a long time.

She said Ben would

need more transplants

throughout his life and

she was motivated to raise

awareness of the life-saving

impact organ donations

can have.

“At the last Transplant

Games there was a countup

of all the athletes and it

was determined that organ

donation had given them a

which is quite amazing,”

she said.

“It’s a full-time job.

You’ve got to train right,

eat right, and prepare

Buli has been hassled

by players and spectators

as a referee but said this

was part and parcel of

the game, regardless of

whether the referee was

male or female.

“They don’t expect you

to know anything. A lot of

the time it comes down to

their age rather than their

gender,” said Buli.

As a referee, Buli has

travelled the world,

including to Russia for the

women’s sevens World Cup

in 2013.

She would love to

referee test rugby one

field alongside the Black

of the most essential

nutrients that have been

shown to protect and even

improve eye function are:

Selenium, is a trace mineral

that is low in N.Z. soils and therefore in

many of our foods. Researchers believe

selenium may help prevent cataracts,

macular degeneration (the leading cause

of impaired vision in older people) and

may also improve dry eyes and general

eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has

been shown to help protect the eyes

from the damaging effects of light as

well as slow vision loss due to macular

degeneration.

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in

landmark research to not only provide

potent eye protection but may even help

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

BOOST BRAIN

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%

TEBONIN is the No 1 Ginkgo Biloba extract in the World with more than 8 million tablets

being consumed every day. It is also the most researched herbal extract with more than 60

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.

Studies on TEBONIN Show:

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.

- The only Ginkgo shown to increase activity in all areas of the brain. Can help restore

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.

- Helps relieve tinnitus (ringing & noise in the ears), vertigo, dizziness & supports normal

balance.

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times,

new research has shown that neurons

can grow back with the right conditions

and that a special extract of Gingko

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has

been clinically found to assist in this.

The implications for stroke recovery are

obvious, but researchers also know many

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”

that over a period of time slowly

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN

is prescribed worldwide as a natural

supportive agent for a healthy brain and

cognitive function. It supports healthy

mental performance, concentration, focus,

alertness, motor function and to help

with many conditions including tinnitus

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves

micro-circulation and helps the blood

flow reach those critical places it needs to

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes

the red blood cells more pliable and

capillary walls more flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

debut in Adelaide

• By Jacob Page

BURNSIDE HIGH School

track cyclist Erin Downie

gets by with a little help

from her friends and

family.

The 16-year-old,

who lives in Avonhead,

has been named in the

New Zealand track cycling

team for the first time.

She will compete at the

Oceania track cycling

championships in Adelaide

from October 11-13.

Erin competes in both

road and track cycling

events, and started her

competitive journey on

a $300 road bike that

her mum Lee purchased

second-hand.

As she grew to love

track cycling, her dad

Chris found a bike frame

and built the bike she still

uses today with bits and

pieces he found on auction

sites.

“I wouldn’t be in this

position without my

parents,” she said.

“A lot of my time is

taken up with training so a

lot of the financial burden

falls on them.”

Erin is a former

Canterbury age-group

Erin Downie

middle distance runner,

cross-country athlete and

footballer, but now her

time is spent solely on the

bike seat.

“I tried to do all of them

when I first started as an

11-year-old but, as my

love of cycling grew, I gave

them up,” she said.

“People used to look at

my bike and do a doubletake

because it’s not a big

brand bike obviously. The

whole Canterbury track

cycling community has

been so helpful in getting

me here.

“I’ve had to borrow a

lot of different gear and

everyone has been really

accommodating.”

Erin said with Hornby’s

Denton Park velodrome

being outdoors and “quite

shaded”, it often meant she

was unable to train on it

during winter because it

was too wet.

With the best track

options being in

Invercargill or Cambridge,

she has done a lot of her

preparation on the road,

or in her garage on a

stationary bike.

“I think I’ve done quite

well to make the team

considering the best

option to train is eight

hours away,” she said.

Erin doesn’t know what

events she will compete

in, but is hopeful she will

get a chance to race in

the under-19 individual

pursuit.

“That will be a good

level for me to test where

I’m at and, if I could get

a personal best, that’d be

great.”

Erin said she still

had ambitions to ride

internationally on both

the track and road and did

not want to commit to one

discipline just yet.

Yoga and

continuing EducAtion

FREE digital media course,

with NCEA built in

For those looking for a role that combines

artistic and digital talents, then this

outstanding, FREE, entry level course has

just been announced by local Training

Provider Trainme, for those wishing

to pursue animation, graphic design,

photography or digital media as a career.

The course covers introduction to

multi-media techniques such as video

production, drawing, animation and

photography. Students will create their own

design concepts and collaborate with other

students on creative projects.

This course is FREE to students aged 16

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be

admitted, if they show artistic or digital

aptitude.

“Many feel that school is not working for

them or they left without qualifications,”

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary

educator Trainme. “While not

necessarily academically minded,

they do have artistic talents

and are very much into digital

technology.”

“This FREE six-month Trainme

course, combines these in a very

hands-on, practical way, giving

them an intro into various digital

media. This way, they can decide

which direction to pursue as their

career focus.”

“As an NZQA approved

programme, NCEA credits are

built in, so if they apply themselves,

they can graduate with a New Zealand

Certificate in Arts and Design Level 2, as

well as gaining credits towards NCEA level

1 or 2.” Says Pollard.

“NCEA results will depend on how many

credits they bring to the course to start

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel

like school at all.”

Successful Graduates from this

programme could pathway into higher study

in media arts, which could include graphic

design, video production, photography or

one of the many emerging digital-based

careers. Places are limited, so students are

encouraged to apply as soon as they can.

Enrolments are Now Open, for

February 2019. Contact Trainme at their

Addington campus for more information

JOHANNES Moser returns to

the NZSO to play

Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto

No. 1, following his 2016

performances of the Lalo Cello

Concerto.

e German-Canadian

cellist has performed with the

world’s leading orchestras with

conductors of the highest level.

He performs at the Air Force

Museum in Christchurch on

Wednesday 10th October, 7pm.

For conductor Peter

Oundjian’s debut with the

NZSO, he will guide the

orchestra through this rich and

varied programme featuring

Russian composers.

Prokoev’s score to Romeo

and Juliet features some of the

Johannes Moser

Peter Oundjian

most intense music written. In this

selection from the Ballet, the musical

narrative clearly depicts the unseen drama

and so stands by itself on the concert stage.

Tickets on sale now at Ticketek.
