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

tomorrow.<br />

Siblings a triple threat at nationals<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

THREE BURNSIDE siblings<br />

are putting the final touches<br />

on their artistic gymnastics<br />

routines ahead of the national<br />

champs tomorrow.<br />

Christchurch School of<br />

Gymnastics members Luke,<br />

16, and twins Cole and Sian<br />

Stevens, 14, will compete against<br />

the country’s best at the New<br />

Zealand championships in<br />

Tauranga which start tomorrow.<br />

The siblings have been<br />

competing in gymnastics for<br />

almost nine years.<br />

The trio said their QE II Park<br />

training base was like a<br />

second home.<br />

“We probably spend as much<br />

time there as we do at home,”<br />

Luke said.<br />

“This is where our friends are<br />

and it’s where we have always<br />

had fun,” Cole said.<br />

Luke and Cole train for 19<br />

hours a week and Sian trains up<br />

to 30 hours a week.<br />

Due to Sian’s heavy training<br />

commitments, she attends<br />

Prosilio for 3.5 hours a day,<br />

which is part of the Ao Tawhiti<br />

School. It allows her to<br />

study around her training<br />

schedule.<br />

Luke and Cole attend<br />

Burnside High School.<br />

Board<br />

members<br />

clash over<br />

breach of<br />

confidence<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

PAPANUI-INNES Community<br />

Board members have clashed<br />

over a breach of confidence.<br />

Member John Stringer told<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> that he called<br />

a private meeting last week<br />

to address the board over his<br />

concerns about the Main North<br />

Rd bus priority proposal.<br />

He said the contents of the<br />

meeting were confidential.<br />

However, community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones revealed to<br />

Nor’West <strong>News</strong> what the meeting<br />

was about.<br />

Ms Jones said because Mr<br />

Stringer was new to local politics,<br />

he may struggle to understand<br />

how the process works, which left<br />

Mr Stringer “disappointed”.<br />

The community board has<br />

recommended the installation<br />

of bus lanes along parts of Main<br />

North Rd from Harewood<br />

Rd to Grassmere St, with an<br />

amendment to exclude a stretch<br />

from Harewood Rd to Winston<br />

Ave.<br />

The proposal, which will be<br />

presented to the city council later<br />

this month, would remove some<br />

on-street parking along Main<br />

North Rd, and make northward<br />

bus times faster.<br />

THERE’S NOTHING too unusual for<br />

siblings to turn up in the same sports team.<br />

But there’s a special touch about the<br />

Stevens’ who compete in the national<br />

gymnastics championships starting in<br />

Tauranga tomorrow (see page 1).<br />

And there’s a set of twins amongst them too.<br />

Reporter Jacob Page caught up with them late last week and<br />

by all counts they’re great kids.<br />

They’ve been competing for nine years.<br />

The key to their success is how much time they train each<br />

week.<br />

They also coach young gymnasts, so no doubt we’ll be hearing<br />

a lot more of the Stevens’ as the years roll by.<br />

And more today (page 3) on the dust-up in the Anglican<br />

church over same sex marriages.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

ANGLICAN Reverend Andy<br />

Carley of St Paul’s in Papanui<br />

has revealed he will help<br />

establish a breakaway diocese<br />

in the wake of the same-sex<br />

marriage blessings saga.<br />

He said nine clergy from seven<br />

parishes in Canterbury had<br />

resigned and would start to form<br />

the diocese, separate from the<br />

synod of the Anglican Church<br />

of Aotearoa, New Zealand and<br />

Polynesia.<br />

The parishes are St John’s<br />

Latimer Square, St Stephen’s in<br />

Shirley, St John’s in Woolston,<br />

St Saviour’s and St Nicholas in<br />

Barrington, St Christopher’s<br />

in Avonhead and St Mark’s in<br />

Rakaia.<br />

“We will establish a new extraprovincial<br />

Anglican diocese,<br />

one recognised by the majority<br />

of the world’s Anglicans, but is<br />

separate from the current New<br />

Zealand Anglican diocese,” he<br />

said.<br />

The Anglican Diocese<br />

of Christchurch and the<br />

synod of the Anglican Church<br />

of Aotearoa, New Zealand and<br />

Polynesia declined to comment.<br />

St John’s Latimer Square, St<br />

Stephen’s, St John’s, St Saviour’s<br />

and St Nicholas, St Christopher’s<br />

and St Mark’s were contacted for<br />

Breakaway diocese under way<br />

In Brief<br />

ISSUE: Reverend Andy Carley is planning on joining with<br />

other clergy from across the country to form a new Anglican<br />

diocese.<br />

comment but did not respond.<br />

St Paul’s parishioner John<br />

Stringer said that while he<br />

would not join the new<br />

diocese, he supported those who<br />

would.<br />

“I support my friend and vicar<br />

Andy and the hundreds, if not<br />

thousands, of vicars and Anglicans<br />

leaving the denomination,”<br />

he said.<br />

He compared the issue to having<br />

a New Zealand passport, and<br />

therefore abiding by the “laws of<br />

the land.”<br />

“That does not mean we agree<br />

with all the laws of the land, like<br />

same-gender marriage, or the<br />

drinking age, or abortion,” he<br />

said.<br />

“If the [general synod] pushes<br />

us too far theologically against<br />

conscience, we may be forced<br />

later to ‘leave NZ’ and ‘rescind<br />

our passports’.”<br />

The St Paul’s congregation<br />

voted in September on whether<br />

to follow Rev Carley in leaving<br />

the church, with 70 per cent voting<br />

to stay even if they did not<br />

agree with same-sex marriage<br />

blessings.<br />

“I understand that leaving a<br />

church that you have been a part<br />

of for many decades is a terribly<br />

hard thing to do, especially<br />

when you’re elderly,” Rev Carley<br />

said.<br />

The Anglican synod voted<br />

to allow same-sex marriage<br />

blessings in May, which Rev<br />

Carley said was “a step in the<br />

wrong direction.”<br />

WITNESS SOUGHT<br />

Police are appealing for a witness<br />

to come forward following an<br />

attempted abduction in Ilam last<br />

week. At around 5.50am on Friday<br />

September 21, a man tried to abduct<br />

a woman jogger at the entrance to<br />

Ray Blank Park on Maidstone Rd.<br />

The woman fought off the man, and<br />

a member of the public driving past<br />

stopped to help her. The person who<br />

stopped to help then followed the<br />

man to a street nearby. Police went<br />

to the address and located the man.<br />

A 27-year-old was arrested, and has<br />

been charged with abduction and<br />

assault with intent to injure. He has<br />

been remanded in custody and will<br />

appear in court on <strong>October</strong> 4. Police<br />

are still keen to speak with the<br />

person who stopped to assist in this<br />

incident. Anyone can get in touch<br />

by phoning Christchurch Police on<br />

OUTDOOR GYM<br />

Burnside residents will be able<br />

to work out in the sun as the<br />

installation of outdoor gym<br />

equipment is completed. The<br />

gym has been set up at Burnside<br />

Park, and was opened on Sunday.<br />

The equipment included a sit-up<br />

Shirley trust makes the most of new<br />

The Shirley Community<br />

Trust has been operating<br />

for almost 20 years and<br />

has recently welcomed<br />

a new building at the<br />

MacFarlane Park Centre.<br />

Ashleigh Monk visited<br />

the centre to see what<br />

the trust was all about<br />

EVERY DAY Ian Dunbar sits at<br />

the entrance of the MacFarlane<br />

Park Centre and greets people as<br />

they walk through the door.<br />

Everyone is welcome here at<br />

the Shirley Community Trust,<br />

the community worker says.<br />

They can take part in the centre’s<br />

many activities or have a chat<br />

and a cup of tea.<br />

“People put Shirley down at<br />

times, but there’s some really<br />

good people in Shirley. People<br />

with good hearts. It’s like any<br />

other suburb, there’s good parts<br />

and not so good parts,” says Mr<br />

Dunbar, who works part-time at<br />

the centre.<br />

The centre is a bit cramped in<br />

the main building; one round<br />

table is crammed into the end of<br />

the room, surrounded by chairs.<br />

But at the end of August,<br />

volunteers and staff at the centre<br />

welcomed a new building, which<br />

provides space for more people<br />

The revolution<br />

in heat pumps<br />

is here now!<br />

FRIENDS: Dave Dunbar welcomes people to the MacFarlane Park Centre, which runs activities<br />

and provides a meeting space for the Shirley community.<br />

to gather. “We couldn’t do a lot of<br />

things because we didn’t have the<br />

space before, but now with two<br />

buildings, it’s better because we<br />

have the room for more groups,”<br />

Mr Dunbar said.<br />

The revolution in heat pumps is here now!<br />

And the space was definitely<br />

needed – hundreds of people<br />

regularly use the facility, and<br />

over the course of the year, about<br />

15,000 volunteers come and go,<br />

keeping the place running.<br />

“It takes a lot of work to keep<br />

this place going. Even one day a<br />

week, it takes about 60 volunteers<br />

to do that. You have people<br />

cooking or doing baking, and<br />

people just being here to support<br />

others.” Mr Dunbar has been<br />

working at the centre for about<br />

nine years – but it was established<br />

long before that.<br />

The centre was brought to<br />

life in 1999 by a group from<br />

Shirley.<br />

The first centre was in St<br />

Stephens Church, but as the need<br />

for space grew, it moved in 20<strong>02</strong><br />

to the former Plunket rooms on<br />

Acheson Ave.<br />

“It was seen as a bit of a dodgy<br />

area, so Plunket went elsewhere<br />

and the Shirley Community<br />

Trust set up here,” he said.<br />

The centre plays host to about<br />

25 different events and activities,<br />

including a fruit and vege co-op,<br />

a foot care clinic, barista training<br />

and a monthly community lunch.<br />

One of the groups, Knitter<br />

Knatter, has been coming to the<br />

centre for 11 years.<br />

Group member Mary Duff<br />

said the knitters started off<br />

making garments for orphanages<br />

in Romania, Russia and South<br />

Africa.<br />

“We’ve sent 1000 garments out<br />

this year,” she said.<br />

“When the earthquakes<br />

happened, we decided we’d do<br />

it for Christchurch. We knit<br />

things for the children’s wards at<br />

the hospital, and we do lots for<br />

the homeless as well.”<br />

space at MacFarlane Park Centre<br />

She said having the space to<br />

knit and have a cup of tea with<br />

friends was “invaluable”.<br />

“We love the new building. In<br />

the old one, we’re sort of knitting<br />

really close together, but now we<br />

can spread out and bring in more<br />

women to the group.”<br />

Another of the centre’s<br />

community worker’s Sharyn<br />

Burnett has been with the Shirley<br />

Community Trust since it<br />

started.<br />

“It’s just finding people in the<br />

community who have skills and<br />

talents and utilising them. That’s<br />

really everything this place is<br />

about, making people realise<br />

they’ve got skills and giving<br />

them the confidence to put them<br />

into use.” She said the most<br />

rewarding part of her job was<br />

hearing the “glowing reviews”<br />

from those who visited the centre<br />

- particularly elderly people who<br />

“And let’s be honest, some of<br />

us can’t reach our toes anymore,”<br />

Mrs Duff said.<br />

cost to relocate the building<br />

would be $100,000 but more<br />

he needed something like this to<br />

there is space for a photo of<br />

her around his house, there’s a<br />

photo.”<br />

And it wasn’t just elderly people<br />

who visited the centre.<br />

“We had a wee boy come to<br />

the coffee mornings and the first<br />

time he came, he was dressed in<br />

a suit. It was like he was coming<br />

for a job interview, I said he was<br />

the best-dressed man we’d ever<br />

seen here. He wants to be a chef,<br />

and I tell you what, he had some<br />

amazing knowledge of food.”<br />

Ms Burnett said people who<br />

ran and visited the centre had all<br />

become “a great big family”.<br />

“We wouldn’t have it any other<br />

way.”<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Children are our present<br />

Neighbourhood<br />

Trust manager<br />

Ginny Larsen<br />

talks about<br />

what children<br />

in Mairehau<br />

would like to<br />

see in their<br />

community<br />

– from whanau hang-out<br />

spaces to colourful murals<br />

OFTEN YOU hear the phrase,<br />

‘children are our future’.<br />

I’d like to challenge that statement<br />

by saying, ‘children are our<br />

present’ and yet they are rarely<br />

asked for their opinions, hopes<br />

and dreams.<br />

Through my work with Neighbourhood<br />

Trust and Te Ora Hou<br />

in the Children’s Voices project,<br />

I’ve found that children have<br />

important things to tell us.<br />

They told us they wanted<br />

colour and vibrancy in their environment;<br />

they wanted people to<br />

be kind to each other; they wanted<br />

people to take responsibility<br />

for things like their dogs and<br />

rubbish; they wanted more family<br />

friendly areas where whanau can<br />

hang out together.<br />

These are simple things, and yet<br />

imagine a world where this vision<br />

became a reality. Wouldn’t we all<br />

love that?<br />

I firmly believe that if we put<br />

children at the centre of our<br />

planning, our city will be a place<br />

KIDS CHOICE: The mural at the entrance of Mairehau Primary<br />

School. Pupils chose to have the school’s motto – Respect,<br />

Believe, Aspire, Achieve – on the mural.<br />

in which people will want to<br />

live – that what is good for our<br />

children, is good for adults too.<br />

An example of this is the colourful<br />

mural painted on a shop<br />

wall at the entrance to Mairehau<br />

Primary School.<br />

It was an idea the children had,<br />

and our community endorsed,<br />

that is now a positive space for<br />

everyone.<br />

It was the children who asked<br />

for their school motto – Respect,<br />

Believe, Aspire, Achieve – to be<br />

part of the mural. What great<br />

words to have emblazoned on the<br />

wall of a hang-out space.<br />

When we take the time to ask<br />

children what they think, we are<br />

often amazed at how astute they<br />

are.<br />

I remember asking children<br />

from our after-school programme<br />

to help choose some<br />

play/exercise style equipment.<br />

Some that we thought looked<br />

cool, they were able to say, ‘yeah,<br />

but they get slippery and no-one<br />

uses them much after a while’.<br />

They preferred some of the<br />

wooden equipment as it could<br />

be used in a number of different<br />

ways imaginatively.<br />

How many mistakes could be<br />

averted by simply asking the end<br />

user?<br />

So next time your organisation<br />

is project planning, how about<br />

including children on the team?<br />

You’ll be glad you did.<br />

Conflict over bus project<br />

•From page 1<br />

Mr Stringer voted against the<br />

proposal.<br />

Ms Jones said Mr Stringer<br />

needed “clarification” about the<br />

process of the proposal.<br />

“As a relatively new member<br />

of the board he just needed<br />

clarification regarding the<br />

process. Emma [Norrish], me<br />

and ward staff spent a lot of time<br />

before the meeting to ensure it<br />

went as smoothly as possible,”<br />

she said.<br />

“We all understood this but<br />

it can be difficult for someone<br />

quite new to local politics to<br />

follow so we supported John to<br />

understand it.”<br />

Mr Stringer said he was<br />

surprised at Ms Jones’ comments<br />

Triple threat at nationals<br />

•From page 1<br />

Sian won the all-round title in<br />

her level at the Singapore Prime<br />

Invitational last year and also<br />

took out a title at last year’s New<br />

Zealand national champs. She<br />

has just recovered from a broken<br />

foot.<br />

“The preparation hasn’t been<br />

ideal with my broken foot slowing<br />

me down, especially since<br />

I kept training on it for three<br />

weeks before being diagnosed,”<br />

she said.<br />

Luke is a level eight gymnast<br />

aimed at him. “We all strictly<br />

agreed together as colleagues<br />

there would be no comment<br />

about the meeting or what was<br />

said,” he said. “I’m disappointed<br />

my chairwoman appears to have<br />

breached that commitment we<br />

all made.”<br />

Ms Jones did not respond to<br />

Mr Stringer’s comments that the<br />

meeting was confidential.<br />

Mr Stringer said the proposal<br />

would “destroy” Papanui Village.<br />

“The radical changes to Papanui<br />

are proposed to make bus<br />

commuting faster northward<br />

. . . such benefits do not justify<br />

such radical changes. I personally<br />

hope city councillors reject<br />

the project . . . I will be lobbying<br />

strongly they do.”<br />

and is the Canterbury champion<br />

for his level. He has represented<br />

Canterbury for the past five years.<br />

Luke is also coaching junior<br />

gymnasts.<br />

Cole finished second at the<br />

Canterbury senior gymnastic<br />

competition in August and won<br />

the pommel horse and parallel<br />

bars.<br />

Both Cole and Luke hope to<br />

make the finals in at least one<br />

apparatus.<br />

Cole also helps his brother to<br />

Capsule document opened<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

Tuesday <strong>October</strong> 2 <strong>2018</strong><br />

A MESSAGE in a bottle found in<br />

the St Albans time capsule has been<br />

opened.<br />

The time capsule was opened last<br />

week after being tucked away for<br />

nearly 100 years.<br />

It was buried in 1920 when the<br />

St Albans Public Library was constructed.<br />

The library was renamed the<br />

St Albans Community Resource<br />

Centre in 1997, and was demolished<br />

in 2011 as a result of earthquake<br />

damage.<br />

The letter detailed the history of<br />

the library, and noted the presidents<br />

of the St Albans Mutual Improvement<br />

Association, which managed<br />

the library, dating from 1867 to<br />

1920.<br />

Copies of The Lyttelton Times<br />

and The Press from the 1920s were<br />

among the artefacts found in the<br />

capsule along with the letter.<br />

The capsule was opened by the<br />

Papanui-Innes Community Board,<br />

pupils from St Albans<br />

Primary and St Albans Catholic<br />

School, and community representatives<br />

from the St Albans History<br />

group, St Albans Residents’ Association<br />

and St Albans Business<br />

Association.<br />

Papanui-Innes Community Board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones said the<br />

board would take suggestions for<br />

things to be put in a new capsule.<br />

THE PAPANUI-Innes<br />

Community Board has discussed<br />

options for beautifying Rutland<br />

Reserve.<br />

The community board<br />

asked staff at a meeting<br />

on Friday to produce a<br />

plan for plantings and<br />

walkways to beautify the<br />

area and prevent flooding<br />

issues.<br />

Flooding at the reserve<br />

has been a subject of<br />

the community board in<br />

February.<br />

Plan to stop flooding<br />

at Rutland Reserve<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones said<br />

city council staff would decide<br />

what areas would have riparian<br />

planting to prevent flooding.<br />

“From what we understand,<br />

the plantings will mitigate<br />

flooding and make sure<br />

that any boggy areas are<br />

dealt with,” she said.<br />

She said walkways<br />

would also be looked<br />

into as a way of<br />

beautifying the reserve.<br />

“It’s a similar case to<br />

Travis Wetland, where<br />

Ali Jones pathways would allow<br />

people to walk through<br />

and enjoy the reserve without<br />

getting their feet wet.”<br />

ADVERTORIAL<br />

The Art of the Arborist<br />

So often we turn up to a property<br />

and the trees have been attacked by<br />

someone, with little to no knowledge<br />

of the needs of the tree. Unfortunately,<br />

this can severely decrease the life<br />

expectancy of the trees.<br />

Tree pruning is both an art and a<br />

science. An arborist’s job is to assess<br />

trees on their individual merit and<br />

determine what approach is needed for<br />

each tree.<br />

The art of pruning means an arborist<br />

can improve a tree’s aesthetics and<br />

structural integrity, whilst making the<br />

tree safe and manageable. When on a<br />

job, there are occasions where we do<br />

advocate that a tree needs removing,<br />

either because it has been pruned<br />

poorly in the past, or the tree would<br />

need severe pruning to reach the<br />

owners desired outcome.<br />

The science behind tree pruning<br />

draws on knowledge, experience and<br />

expertise to ensure that tree health<br />

remains a top priority.<br />

Every tree needs to be pruned<br />

differently, for example, you can’t prune<br />

a Maple the same as you would an Oak.<br />

Sometimes there are options available<br />

rather than simply topping a tree.<br />

An arborist may suggest elevating the<br />

lower canopy to let light in underneath,<br />

removing deadwood and thinning<br />

(increases airflow around tree and<br />

increasing light to still keep shape<br />

and health of tree), or possibly end<br />

weighting (removing weight) from<br />

selected limbs.<br />

Our favourite clients are the ones that ask<br />

us if it were my garden, what would I do<br />

to the trees. This gives us the freedom to<br />

immerse ourselves in the garden and get<br />

the best result for the client.<br />

Often, we like to do the primary<br />

work (obvious work) first, and then<br />

the secondary work becomes more<br />

apparent.<br />

Consulting an arborist or tree surgeon<br />

and investing in your trees can add<br />

value to a property, not to mention<br />

enjoyment to the owner. Alternatively,<br />

trees that are poorly looked after could<br />

have the potential to become a liability<br />

for the owner.<br />

Disaster locator earns Rangi student award<br />

A BUDDING entrepreneur has<br />

been recognised at the national<br />

GirlBoss awards.<br />

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School<br />

student Tulsi Lathia, 17, took out<br />

the coveted innovation award at a<br />

ceremony in Auckland last week.<br />

Tulsi is one of six young<br />

women who received a GirlBoss<br />

award after more than 400 nominations<br />

flooded in from around<br />

the country.<br />

Each winner received $1000<br />

with the supreme winner receiving<br />

$2000.<br />

Tulsi collaboratively invented<br />

a device that helps locate people<br />

after a natural disaster, and a second<br />

device that is a fire detection,<br />

evacuation and control system.<br />

“Winning this award means<br />

so much to me. I want to use<br />

the award as a magnet to pull in<br />

young women like me who may<br />

have felt isolated with their passions.<br />

I want to empower them<br />

to step up, take charge and make<br />

things happen,” she said.<br />

Tulsi said young women are<br />

not always made aware of the opportunities<br />

open to them.<br />

“At Rangi Ruru I feel able<br />

to extend myself and be supported<br />

to follow my dreams, but<br />

sometimes some of us can be<br />

unaware of our potential and underestimate<br />

the power we have. I<br />

believe this award will enable me<br />

to help change this and positively<br />

influence young women. I hope<br />

that I can inspire, motivate and<br />

empower future change-makers.”<br />

As part of her application to<br />

GirlBoss, Tulsi’s submission<br />

outlined projects she has been<br />

involved in.<br />

“I wrote about the Paradigm<br />

Challenge, which was something<br />

I worked on with a team of four<br />

– two of us here in New Zealand<br />

and two in India. I wanted to<br />

show that there are no barriers of<br />

age, distance and time to innovative<br />

collaboration. It all depends<br />

on how much passion and drive<br />

you have,” she said.<br />

“Self-motivation was crucial,<br />

as without being face-to-face<br />

with each other, we had to stay<br />

connected and on task. Our combined<br />

enthusiasm for science,<br />

technology and innovation for<br />

good helped us grow as people<br />

who were more open to share<br />

their fascination with others and<br />

work hard towards a goal.”<br />

St Bede’s students run<br />

for cancer cause<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

LAST WEEK about 160 St Bede’s<br />

College students put on their<br />

trainers and ran in aid of teen<br />

cancer.<br />

This was the school’s eighth<br />

Run For A Life event, in which<br />

students run across the South<br />

Island to raise money for<br />

CanTeen.<br />

Event organiser Rachel<br />

Pitcaithly said the run aimed to<br />

not only raise money for young<br />

cancer victims, but also raise<br />

awareness.<br />

“There’s so many of us that<br />

have been affected by cancer<br />

in different ways, shapes and<br />

forms,” she said.<br />

“CanTeen have become real<br />

family members to us. What<br />

is great is that they look after<br />

teenagers with cancer, but they<br />

also look after teenagers who<br />

might have a sibling or parent<br />

they’ve lost to cancer – and<br />

unfortunately that’s a few of our<br />

boys.”<br />

Run For A Life involved<br />

groups of students running<br />

about 5km at a time in<br />

relay-style, with each student<br />

covering about 25km a day for<br />

five days.<br />

“The idea was to do something<br />

READY, SET, GO: About 160 St Bede’s College students started<br />

a journey across the South Island on Wednesday in a bid to<br />

raise money for CanTeen.<br />

really hard to give us a look<br />

into what it must be like having<br />

cancer as part of your everyday<br />

life.”<br />

The school had raised more<br />

than $80,000 by the time the run<br />

kicked off on Wednesday.<br />

“The support has been<br />

amazing. There are a lot of<br />

families around the South Island<br />

who have committed to giving us<br />

meals and accommodation . . . it’s<br />

very humbling just how close this<br />

is to people’s hearts.”<br />

Big hat donation<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

PUPILS AT Bishopdale School<br />

will be sporting brand new sun<br />

hats after a donation from a<br />

community group.<br />

The Kiwanis Club of North<br />

West Christchurch presented<br />

130 floppy sun hats to the school<br />

last week.<br />

Kiwanis is a global collective<br />

that started in the United States<br />

and aims to provide support<br />

to local communities. There<br />

are about 8000 clubs across the<br />

world.<br />

Bishopdale School administrator<br />

Pauline Hake said the<br />

school was “so grateful” to have<br />

the club’s support.<br />

“It’s just such a lovely thing<br />

for them to do, and great for our<br />

kids,” she said.<br />

“We hope we can keep working<br />

with them in the future.”<br />

Club of<br />

Christchurch<br />

donated 130<br />

hats to pupils<br />

at Bishopdale<br />

School.<br />

Kiwanis club member Alan<br />

Barker said the club was “delighted”<br />

to donate the sun hats.<br />

“An old cobber of mine was<br />

talking to the principal of the<br />

school, who said they were a bit<br />

strapped for cash. So he rung me<br />

and asked if the Kiwanis would<br />

be interested in doing something<br />

for them,” he said.<br />

“A hundred and thirty hats,<br />

and they were happy as Larry.”<br />

The club undertakes fundraising<br />

activities to raise money to<br />

perform acts of kindness across<br />

the city. The activities included<br />

selling ‘entertainment books’,<br />

providing parking assistance<br />

at events, delivering telephone<br />

books and so on.<br />

“We just do odds and sods,<br />

bits and pieces . . . but not<br />

physical things as a few of us are<br />

getting on a bit.”

robot has once again led Selwyn<br />

House School pupils to success.<br />

Year 6 pupils Charlotte<br />

Leatherland, Honor Forbes,<br />

Lily Henderson-Walshe, Masha<br />

Pospolitak and Mel Leatherland<br />

finished second in the junior<br />

theatre category of the national<br />

Robocup competition.<br />

The robot, which the girls programmed<br />

themselves, performed<br />

a pyramid-building play.<br />

Year 8 pupils Reed McHugh,<br />

Jessika Sanders, Kate Brown and<br />

Lucy Eyre-Walker won the senior<br />

rescue section of the regional<br />

Robocup competition.<br />

The senior rescue required the<br />

pupils to programme a robot to<br />

follow a broken line.<br />

The year 8 group battled it<br />

out in the national competition<br />

against 17 other teams and,<br />

while they did not place, teacher<br />

Simon Christie said they did an<br />

“amazing” job.<br />

ROSETTA BROWN has<br />

developed a passion for the<br />

environment – and that passion<br />

has earned her a place as one of<br />

three finalists in the Keep New<br />

Zealand Beautiful Awards.<br />

The Rangi Ruru Girls’ School<br />

student is a finalist in the young<br />

legends category of the annual<br />

awards, which is for young Kiwis<br />

who have been recognised for<br />

their contribution towards creating<br />

a sustainable future for New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Rosetta, 16, is an integral member<br />

of the Rangi Ruru sustainability<br />

executive, a leader of the<br />

school’s environment club and<br />

an editor of Bloom, a well-being<br />

journal, that highlights sustainable,<br />

healthy habits to help follow<br />

students feel good and function<br />

well.<br />

She has also played a part in<br />

establishing source separation<br />

of waste at Rangi and the coordination<br />

of the school’s reuse<br />

depot over the past two years.<br />

These initiatives have allowed<br />

Rangi to significantly reduce<br />

waste to landfill – by 58 per<br />

cent within the school community<br />

and 62 per cent within the<br />

school’s boarding community<br />

– and helped the school become<br />

carbon neutral in 2017.<br />

“It is important to me that we<br />

don’t just talk about sustainable<br />

behaviours, but that we get stuck<br />

in and make a difference through<br />

actions and a collective approach.<br />

We all need to consider our role<br />

as consumers and think carefully<br />

about the life-cycle and impact<br />

of products we buy. In doing this<br />

we can be proactive in disrupting<br />

the traditional take-make-waste<br />

model,” Rosetta said.<br />

For principal Dr Sandra Hastie,<br />

Rosetta’s short-listing came as no<br />

surprise.<br />

“Inspiring others through her<br />

commitment, drive and passion<br />

to help keep New Zealand beautiful,<br />

Rosetta is a highly respected<br />

Ben swims for medals at<br />

the Transplant Games<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

ON THE surface, Ben<br />

Stanbury appears to be like<br />

any other 13-year-old on<br />

the verge of starting high<br />

school.<br />

The Heaton Intermediate<br />

pupil, and soon to be Papanui<br />

High School student,<br />

loves swimming, camping<br />

and playing Fortnite on his<br />

computer.<br />

However, this week he<br />

is on the Gold Coast competing<br />

at the Transplant<br />

Games.<br />

Ben was born with a rare<br />

disease called autosomal<br />

recessive polycystic kidney<br />

disease. It means his world<br />

is defined by his health.<br />

Three years ago, he had a<br />

• By Zahra Shahtahmasebi<br />

THERE’S A history behind<br />

Lyndon McKendry’s<br />

referee whistle.<br />

It was originally her<br />

father’s. He started<br />

refereeing in 1958<br />

before passing<br />

down the little<br />

silver device to<br />

McKendry. It has<br />

now been in action<br />

for about 60<br />

years.<br />

McKendry is the<br />

Canterbury Rugby<br />

Football Union’s<br />

referee education<br />

officer.<br />

Like her, she<br />

says women who grew<br />

up watching their fathers<br />

control rugby games often<br />

pursued a refereeing career.<br />

In spite of this, in the<br />

Canterbury region there<br />

are only four female referees<br />

out of a total 200.<br />

As the referee education<br />

officer at the Canterbury<br />

Rugby Football Union,<br />

McKendry’s responsibilities<br />

include recruitment<br />

training and development<br />

for all referees from Cheviot<br />

through to Dunsandel.<br />

She says the CRFU<br />

would love to see more females<br />

picking up a whistle.<br />

“Rugby is a game for everyone<br />

– gender shouldn’t<br />

Lyndon<br />

McKendry<br />

SPORTS<br />

liver transplant, and in the<br />

next few years, he will also<br />

need a kidney transplant.<br />

Ben will compete in the<br />

swimming events, athletics,<br />

ten pin bowling and<br />

chess on the Gold Coast.<br />

He said his favourite<br />

event is the 50m backstroke<br />

and he’s been training<br />

for months.<br />

“I like to go fast and the<br />

50m backstroke means I<br />

can do that,” he said.<br />

Ben said he enjoys catching<br />

up with his friends who<br />

also had transplants.<br />

At the 2016 games, he<br />

be a barrier,” said McKendry.<br />

To increase female<br />

involvement next year,<br />

the CRFU plans to target<br />

women who have played<br />

this year, as well as former<br />

players.<br />

It will also<br />

emphasise the<br />

introductory<br />

referee<br />

programme You<br />

Make The Call,<br />

which offers<br />

participants<br />

eight level three<br />

NCEA credits<br />

in Christchurch<br />

schools,<br />

particularly girlsonly<br />

schools.<br />

McKendry says there<br />

were many reasons why<br />

men and women chose not<br />

to referee, such as work<br />

and family commitments<br />

or feeling like they didn’t<br />

know enough about the<br />

game.<br />

Koini Buli, one of the<br />

four female referees in<br />

Canterbury, said being<br />

a referee was tough. She<br />

still gets nervous before a<br />

match, especially “if it’s going<br />

to be a hell of a game.”<br />

She says many people<br />

didn’t understand that a<br />

referee was actually an<br />

athlete. Buli trains two to<br />

three times a week with<br />

a mixture of cardio and<br />

won two gold, two silver<br />

and four bronze medals.<br />

His mum Traci said after<br />

he won the medals, it gave<br />

him a boost of confidence<br />

which lasted a long time.<br />

She said Ben would<br />

need more transplants<br />

throughout his life and<br />

she was motivated to raise<br />

awareness of the life-saving<br />

impact organ donations<br />

can have.<br />

“At the last Transplant<br />

Games there was a countup<br />

of all the athletes and it<br />

was determined that organ<br />

donation had given them a<br />

combined 2000 years of life<br />

which is quite amazing,”<br />

she said.<br />

The Transplant Games<br />

conclude on Saturday.<br />

Encouraging women<br />

to become rugby refs<br />

weight sessions.<br />

“It’s a full-time job.<br />

You’ve got to train right,<br />

eat right, and prepare<br />

yourself mentally and<br />

strategically.”<br />

Buli has been hassled<br />

by players and spectators<br />

as a referee but said this<br />

was part and parcel of<br />

the game, regardless of<br />

whether the referee was<br />

male or female.<br />

“They don’t expect you<br />

to know anything. A lot of<br />

the time it comes down to<br />

their age rather than their<br />

gender,” said Buli.<br />

As a referee, Buli has<br />

travelled the world,<br />

including to Russia for the<br />

women’s sevens World Cup<br />

in 2013.<br />

She would love to<br />

referee test rugby one<br />

day and aspires to take the<br />

field alongside the Black<br />

Ferns with her whistle<br />

in hand. “If you can’t get<br />

into the provincial rugby<br />

teams, you can make it as a<br />

referee. It’s not any less of a<br />

position to be in.”<br />

With the likes of former<br />

Black Fern Rebecca<br />

Mahoney now refereeing<br />

the men’s Mitre 10 Cup,<br />

there might soon come a<br />

day when we see a female<br />

refereeing in the rugby<br />

World Cup.<br />

Device to prevent<br />

snoring<br />

Why put up with broken sleep, when<br />

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance<br />

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and<br />

dry and raw throats.<br />

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth<br />

for comfort, and a follow up service is<br />

provided.<br />

Denise Lim has been involved with<br />

Snores for 22 years<br />

and has had a 98%<br />

success rate with<br />

people using the<br />

appliance. Snoring<br />

can be a health<br />

hazard, causing<br />

sleep apnoea, where<br />

the person actually<br />

stops breathing for<br />

short periods.<br />

It can cause<br />

short-term memory<br />

loss, tiredness and<br />

contribute to high<br />

blood pressure.<br />

Research supports<br />

EyE hEaLTh<br />

The tree of LIFE<br />

New research on Gingko<br />

Biloba excites researchers!<br />

Nutritional researchers<br />

have discovered a range of<br />

nutrients that are essential<br />

for eye health. Some<br />

of the most essential<br />

nutrients that have been<br />

shown to protect and even<br />

improve eye function are:<br />

Selenium, is a trace mineral<br />

that is low in N.Z. soils and therefore in<br />

many of our foods. Researchers believe<br />

selenium may help prevent cataracts,<br />

macular degeneration (the leading cause<br />

of impaired vision in older people) and<br />

may also improve dry eyes and general<br />

eye health.<br />

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage<br />

of the population are low in. Zinc has<br />

been shown to help protect the eyes<br />

from the damaging effects of light as<br />

well as slow vision loss due to macular<br />

degeneration.<br />

Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene<br />

(Pro-vitamin A) and Copper<br />

have potent antioxidant ability and help<br />

protect the eyes from damage<br />

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing<br />

nutrients that have been shown in<br />

landmark research to not only provide<br />

potent eye protection but may even help<br />

reverse some of the signs of age-related<br />

macular degeneration (AMD).<br />

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in<br />

potent antioxidants may help protect<br />

the lens and retina from damage and<br />

reduce the risk of cataracts. They also may<br />

help improve blood supply to the eye,<br />

strengthen the small capillaries of<br />

the eye and may help improve<br />

night vision, may alleviate<br />

many eye ailments<br />

including eye fatigue<br />

that may be caused<br />

by reading, driving and<br />

computers.<br />

Eyebright may help normalise eye<br />

pressure and reduce eye allergies.<br />

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential<br />

for correct eye function. It may also have a<br />

detoxifying affect on the eye.<br />

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye<br />

fatigue, bloodshot eyes and maintain good<br />

vision.<br />

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.<br />

It provides many nutrients, is rich in<br />

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s)<br />

that are potent antioxidants that may<br />

protect eyesight.<br />

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic<br />

amount help provide comprehensive eye<br />

protection, may slow and possibly even<br />

help reverse eye damage that could lead<br />

to loss of vision. All these nutrients are<br />

available in an economical one a day easy<br />

to swallow capsule.<br />

BOOST BRAIN<br />

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%<br />

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

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

controlled clinical studies & over 400 scientific studies. It has been shown to have excellent<br />

efficacy, safety & tolerability. Millions of consumers have trusted TEBONIN for over 30<br />

years to support blood flow, capillary health, brain health & performance.<br />

Studies on TEBONIN Show:<br />

- Improved Brain Performance & Function up to 30%. This includes improvement<br />

in mental sharpness, focus, attention, concentration, understanding, memory & recall.<br />

- Reduces errors made & mental stress.<br />

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

brain function after a brain injury such as from a stroke.<br />

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

balance.<br />

- Improves blood flow to all areas of the body.<br />

- Reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels.<br />

- Protective effect against eyes damage caused by light.<br />

For decades scientists believed brain<br />

damage with age, after a stroke or injury<br />

was irreversible and brain neurons could<br />

not be repaired. In more recent times,<br />

new research has shown that neurons<br />

can grow back with the right conditions<br />

and that a special extract of Gingko<br />

Biloba (EGb-761 or TEBONIN) has<br />

been clinically found to assist in this.<br />

The implications for stroke recovery are<br />

obvious, but researchers also know many<br />

of us suffer from undetected “microstrokes”<br />

that over a period of time slowly<br />

reduce our cognitive function. TEBONIN<br />

is prescribed worldwide as a natural<br />

supportive agent for a healthy brain and<br />

cognitive function. It supports healthy<br />

mental performance, concentration, focus,<br />

alertness, motor function and to help<br />

with many conditions including tinnitus<br />

(ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo<br />

and normal balance. TEBONIN improves<br />

micro-circulation and helps the blood<br />

flow reach those critical places it needs to<br />

get. It is a potent anti-oxidant and makes<br />

the red blood cells more pliable and<br />

capillary walls more flexible.<br />

TEBONIN is one of the most widely<br />

studied and researched herbal products in<br />

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba<br />

debut in Adelaide<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

BURNSIDE HIGH School<br />

track cyclist Erin Downie<br />

gets by with a little help<br />

from her friends and<br />

family.<br />

The 16-year-old,<br />

who lives in Avonhead,<br />

has been named in the<br />

New Zealand track cycling<br />

team for the first time.<br />

She will compete at the<br />

Oceania track cycling<br />

championships in Adelaide<br />

from <strong>October</strong> 11-13.<br />

Erin competes in both<br />

road and track cycling<br />

events, and started her<br />

competitive journey on<br />

a $300 road bike that<br />

her mum Lee purchased<br />

second-hand.<br />

As she grew to love<br />

track cycling, her dad<br />

Chris found a bike frame<br />

and built the bike she still<br />

uses today with bits and<br />

pieces he found on auction<br />

sites.<br />

“I wouldn’t be in this<br />

position without my<br />

parents,” she said.<br />

“A lot of my time is<br />

taken up with training so a<br />

lot of the financial burden<br />

falls on them.”<br />

Erin is a former<br />

Canterbury age-group<br />

Erin Downie<br />

middle distance runner,<br />

cross-country athlete and<br />

footballer, but now her<br />

time is spent solely on the<br />

bike seat.<br />

“I tried to do all of them<br />

when I first started as an<br />

11-year-old but, as my<br />

love of cycling grew, I gave<br />

them up,” she said.<br />

“People used to look at<br />

my bike and do a doubletake<br />

because it’s not a big<br />

brand bike obviously. The<br />

whole Canterbury track<br />

cycling community has<br />

been so helpful in getting<br />

me here.<br />

“I’ve had to borrow a<br />

lot of different gear and<br />

everyone has been really<br />

accommodating.”<br />

Erin said with Hornby’s<br />

Denton Park velodrome<br />

being outdoors and “quite<br />

shaded”, it often meant she<br />

was unable to train on it<br />

during winter because it<br />

was too wet.<br />

With the best track<br />

options being in<br />

Invercargill or Cambridge,<br />

she has done a lot of her<br />

preparation on the road,<br />

or in her garage on a<br />

stationary bike.<br />

“I think I’ve done quite<br />

well to make the team<br />

considering the best<br />

option to train is eight<br />

hours away,” she said.<br />

Erin doesn’t know what<br />

events she will compete<br />

in, but is hopeful she will<br />

get a chance to race in<br />

the under-19 individual<br />

pursuit.<br />

“That will be a good<br />

level for me to test where<br />

I’m at and, if I could get<br />

a personal best, that’d be<br />

great.”<br />

Erin said she still<br />

had ambitions to ride<br />

internationally on both<br />

the track and road and did<br />

not want to commit to one<br />

discipline just yet.<br />

From Art to<br />

Yoga and<br />

everything<br />

in between

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi<br />

continuing EducAtion<br />

FREE digital media course,<br />

with NCEA built in<br />

For those looking for a role that combines<br />

artistic and digital talents, then this<br />

outstanding, FREE, entry level course has<br />

just been announced by local Training<br />

Provider Trainme, for those wishing<br />

to pursue animation, graphic design,<br />

photography or digital media as a career.<br />

The course covers introduction to<br />

multi-media techniques such as video<br />

production, drawing, animation and<br />

photography. Students will create their own<br />

design concepts and collaborate with other<br />

students on creative projects.<br />

This course is FREE to students aged 16<br />

to 19 and they only have to have NCEA 1<br />

to join. Students without NCEA 1 can be<br />

admitted, if they show artistic or digital<br />

aptitude.<br />

“Many feel that school is not working for<br />

them or they left without qualifications,”<br />

says Rhys Pollard, Marketer with tertiary<br />

educator Trainme. “While not<br />

necessarily academically minded,<br />

they do have artistic talents<br />

and are very much into digital<br />

technology.”<br />

“This FREE six-month Trainme<br />

course, combines these in a very<br />

hands-on, practical way, giving<br />

them an intro into various digital<br />

media. This way, they can decide<br />

which direction to pursue as their<br />

career focus.”<br />

“As an NZQA approved<br />

programme, NCEA credits are<br />

built in, so if they apply themselves,<br />

they can graduate with a New Zealand<br />

Certificate in Arts and Design Level 2, as<br />

well as gaining credits towards NCEA level<br />

1 or 2.” Says Pollard.<br />

“NCEA results will depend on how many<br />

credits they bring to the course to start<br />

with, but as it’s a fun subject, it won’t feel<br />

like school at all.”<br />

Successful Graduates from this<br />

programme could pathway into higher study<br />

in media arts, which could include graphic<br />

design, video production, photography or<br />

one of the many emerging digital-based<br />

careers. Places are limited, so students are<br />

encouraged to apply as soon as they can.<br />

Enrolments are Now Open, for<br />

February 2019. Contact Trainme at their<br />

Spring into something<br />

new at the WEA!<br />

Did you know that according to several<br />

recent studies learning something new can<br />

actually increase your life expectancy?<br />

learning has also been shown to: ward<br />

off dementia, build self-confidence and<br />

resilience, contribute to better mental health<br />

and wellbeing and build positive social<br />

connections!<br />

testimonials of students many of whom<br />

themselves with different courses and a<br />

Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto<br />

No. 1, following his 2016<br />

Concerto.<br />

e German-Canadian<br />

world’s leading orchestras with<br />

conductors of the highest level.<br />

He performs at the Air Force<br />

Museum in Christchurch on<br />

Wednesday 10th <strong>October</strong>, 7pm.<br />

For conductor Peter<br />

Oundjian’s debut with the<br />

NZSO, he will guide the<br />

orchestra through this rich and<br />

varied programme featuring<br />

Russian composers.<br />

Prokoev’s score to Romeo<br />

and Juliet features some of the<br />

Johannes Moser<br />

most intense music written. In this<br />
