SIBLINGS: Luke, Sian and Cole Stevens

from the Christchurch School of

THREE SIBLINGS are putting

the final touches on their

artistic gymnastics routines

at their “second home” at QE

II Park 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 almost

nine years.

The trio said their QE II

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.

Drop in

Burwood

land

values

blamed

on quakes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE FEBRUARY 22, 2011, quake

is still having an impact on land

values in Burwood.

The Burwood East Residents’

Association has met with

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams over the fall of land

values in the area since 2007.

Quotable Value figures showed

Burwood had a 13 per cent drop

in the land value portion of their

capital value from 2007 to 2013

($161,000 to $140,000). This then

grew by six per cent between the

2013 and the 2016 revaluations to

a median value of $148,500.

Harcourts Gold New Brighton

real estate agent Andrew Swift

said the main cause was the

earthquakes.

He said areas of land in

Burwood which are close to

the river or waterways will be

classified under the city council’s

technical category three.

Mr Swift said it is the least

favourable type of land because it

requires more investigation from

an engineer before it can be built

on. •Turn to page 4

The bike ride to school in winter was

We weren’t a bad sort of a side either. There were players like

Paul Nouata (still a good mate today), Clay Penrose, Kevin

Hermansson, Phil Douglas and Mike Sandford, to name a few.

Apologies to those who have momentarily slipped my mind.

Flying fox may get new home

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CONTROVERSIAL flying

fox removed from a playground

in the Prestons Park subdivision

for being too noisy could be reinstalled

at Marshland Domain.

The domain has been

determined as the best location

by city council staff for the flying

fox, which was formerly located

at Muka Park.

It comes after the flying

fox was removed at a cost of

$20,000 after

neighbours

complained

to the city

council.

It divided the

neighbourhood

with a

Tim Sintes

petition of 488

signatures in

support of keeping the flying fox

at Muka Park presented to the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board last year.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said

Marshland Domain has suitable

separation from neighbouring

properties and is in close

proximity to Muka Park.

He said it looked at other

nearby parks and Marshland

School as options. It is estimated

the cost would be $30,000 to reinstall

the flying fox.

The cost estimate includes

building a mound, platform,

posts for the cable, landscaping,

earthworks and a playground

soft fall.

A community board report

said funding is available in the

Long Term Plan to install the

flying fox between 2020 and

2021.

But Mr Rutledge said the cost

would need to be assessed when

funding is made available.

Community board deputy

chairman Tim Sintes said

Marshland Domain is only a

suggestion and residents have

got to be advised if it is going to

be built there.

“Hopefully we can learn by

our mistakes and we don’t repeat

what we did last time,” he said.

NOISY: The flying fox at Muka

Park in the Prestons Park

subdivision was taken down

by the city council after noise

complaints from neighbours.

Marshland Domain has been

suggested as a potential new

home for it.

When the funding is

confirmed, the city council will

check in with the community

to see if it is in support of the

project and the location for the

flying fox.

The flying fox is currently in

storage.

Prestons Park resident Alun

Davies said if the city council is

looking to do something positive

for the community, it should

spend money to make Muka

Park into a “decent park”.

“For a playground in a big

development it is basically

useless now. There is nothing

there for the kids now,” he said.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Brighton becomes canvas for artists

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEW BRIGHTON’S Josh

O’Rouke and Nathan Ingram live

and breathe art.

Their dedication to the arts has

led to them winning the SCAPE

Public Art Trust’s Re:Activate

2018: New Brighton competition.

Next month, Ingram will have

his work produced on a basketball

court off Marine Pde, while

O’Rourke’s work will be placed

on the mural wall south of New

Brighton Pier.

O’Rouke said he was “pretty

surprised” when his work was

selected.

“I think my initial response was

mild panic. It’s an enormous opportunity,

so obviously completely

stoked, but it’s also a huge undertaking,”

he said.

Ingram said it was cool because

the work will be there for a long

time and hopefully his one-yearold

son will grow up with it.

O’Rouke’s design is an abstract

version of a topographic weather

map, while Ingram’s represents

the forces of nature that define

New Brighton. “I had this idea

of using low/high pressure maps

from weather forecasts . . . and

thought the organic patterns the

lines created would be an interesting

departure point,” O’Rouke

said.

Ingram said elements of his

work relates to the sand dunes,

•From page 1

“If we look at Burwood across

the whole of it because there is a

percentage of properties in that

category, the land value generally

on average may have dropped,”

he said.

But Mr Swift said other

developments, such as the

new high school being built at

QE II Park, rebuilt properties

and upgraded roads are

compensating.

“I am seeing a new confidence

in the area. Certainly since

the school zones have been

ocean, wind and sunrise.

“It is all represented in a more

contemporary, geometric style,”

he said.

Ingram moved to the city to

study graphic design at the Design

& Arts College of New Zealand

in the late 1990s and has been

heavily involved in the creative

industry since.

He is a fashion design tutor at

Ara Institute of Canterbury, and

earlier this year he and his wife

moved their art gallery, FIKSATE

Studio & Gallery, into the central

city.

The gallery primarily focuses on

urban contemporary and street

art.

Ingram said the gallery puts a

lot of focus on supporting other

artists and showcases many solo

and group shows.

“It is really cool supporting

artists. Being an artist yourself,

I understand the process they go

through and then how hard it is

to get a body of work together,” he

said.

O’Rouke graduated from the

Ilam School of Fine Arts in 2011

with honours in painting.

His main projects since then

have included working with

photographer Warren Hawke and

book designs for CPL Media.

O’Rouke works for NZMS at

Canterbury Museum as a team

leader and graphic designer.

Sue Roper said it had been an

matter.

Ms Williams has

since written to

information on why

“We are hoping there will be

Call for toilet upgrade in New Brighton

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PLEA to have better toilet

facilities in the New Brighton mall

area is unlikely to be answered.

North New Brighton 88 -year- old

resident Isobelle Doig has requested

urgent attention over the lack of

facilities in the area.

Her letter of concern was presented

to the Coastal -Burwood

Community Board and has since

been passed on to the city council

staff.

But it is unlikely her request will

be met, as there is currently no

funding set aside in the Long Term

Plan for toilet upgrades in the area.

It comes as the city council has

set aside $12 million in the Long

Term Plan for improvements to

public spaces as part of the New

Brighton Centre Master Plan.

It has been more than three years

since the plan was approved.

Development Christchurch Ltd

is the lead agency carrying out the

work.

A DCL spokesman said while

upgrading the toilet facilities is not

included in its work, it agrees the

facilities need to be improved.

Upgrades on the toilet facilities

were identified in the city council’s

2015 master plan, but additional

funding was not set aside in the

Long Term Plan.

Mrs Doig’s concern is that it is

too far for elderly, the disabled,

families and mothers with babies

to walk from New Brighton mall

on Seaview Rd to the toilet facilities

on Shaw Ave and beside the New

Brighton Library.

Mrs Doig also raised concerns

over the “disgraceful” state of the

Shaw Ave toilets and how she is

scared she will slip over due to the

floors being wet.

She said she struggles to get to

the public toilets at the library and

Shaw Ave from the New Brighton

mall.

Mrs Doig said she cannot walk

without a four-wheel mobility trolley

due to having her knee and hip

replaced along with heart surgery

in 2010.

“I will keep battling. I tell you

what if anyone would go with me,

and I don’t know if anyone would,

I would go and protest about those

toilets. I am really passionate about

it. They’re terrible,” she said.

NEED FOR CHANGE: An 88-year-old North New Brighton resident says the Shaw Ave toilets

are too far from the New Brighton mall.

District Plan clause could be added by Xmas

• By Matt Salmons and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

A RESOLUTION to the issues

coastal residents are facing

with building or renovating

could possibly arrive in time for

Christmas.

Individuals, residents’ groups

and community boards have

fought to get a clause added to

the city’s district plan which

would make it easier for residents

in Southshore, South New

Brighton and Redcliffs to build

or renovate.

Last week the city council

approved that staff draft a proposal

for Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods to utilise her powers

under section 71 of the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act

to add the clause.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman

Tim Sintes said overall it is a

good move forward.

“I think time frames are huge

for everybody. Worst-case

scenario, it could be after

Christmas. I would like to

focus on the best scenario,”

he said.

Mr Sintes told the city

council in a deputation last

week the stress the community

had been put under

was “shocking”.

“It actually blows me

away to think that this has been

brought up for so long and it

has taken all this work to get to

this stage . . . we have brought it

Lianne

Dalziel

up at the community board and

council so many times,” he said.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

Dr Woods would only be able

to say yes or no to whatever

proposal came before her.

“We have to make sure that

the wording that goes

in front of the minister

is the wording that will

solve the problem,” Ms

Dalziel said.

City council staff said

that process has three

stages: Initiating the process,

drafting a proposal

and getting feedback

from strategic partners,

and then gaining final approval

for the proposal to go to Dr

Woods.

The final approval from the

city council would, at the latest,

come in December, and Dr

Woods would make a decision

early next year.

However, Ms Dalziel stressed

that it was “technically” possible

for the clause to be in the District

Plan by Christmas.

During a joint deputation

from the community boards

representing the affected areas,

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board chairwoman

Sally Buck said they wanted the

process to be hastened.

“We believe this is a simple fix

so there shouldn’t be any delay.”

Fellow board member Darrell

Latham said the draft proposal

could come back to the city

council “in a matter of weeks,

not months.”

Ms Dalziel said the process

could only be sped up to a

point, as there was a set process

under section 71.

“All we can do is ask the community

to understand that we

will do everything we can, as

fast as we can,” she said.

City councillor Sara Templeton

supported the resolution be

carried, but cautioned that “the

process and any wording are

not a silver bullet.”

“The process and costs (of

getting resource consents within

the RUO) may not change.”

Exciting projects for east

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

IT IS heartening to see that after

a long period of hibernation

that some much-needed and

eagerly-anticipated activities are

happening, and more are planned

for the eastern part of our city.

Recently, local business and

organisations including the New

Brighton RSA were invited to

participate in the Scape Public

Art Project.

This project is to provide a

mural on to the concrete ramp

that accesses the library from the

southern car park and to have a

further mural on the basketball

court.

Our role was to judge and

choose the art from many artists

that submitted their designs to

this project.

We are looking forward to seeing

the art on the concrete wall in

the near future.

The new playground north of

the library has been a great success

with it well attended most

weekends and in the holidays.

This is not your standard

children’s playground but an

interactive centre that stimulates

their interest and learning.

The New Brighton RSA has

moved to the New Brighton

Bowling Club building at 21

Mafeking St and has undertaken

a major building extension, an

updated kitchen cafe, bathroom

facilities, and a large games room

have been added to the existing

building.

FUN: The Taiora QE II

Recreation and Sport Centre

has been popular since it

opened.

The New Brighton RSA is very

much focused on being an active

part of the local community and

welcomes all to visit and become

supporting members.

With the school holidays upon

us the new swimming pools at

QE II will be in demand and this

is a safe venue for parents and

grandparents to take children

too.

There is a lot of potential in the

eastern city with great beaches

and open spaces, we are all well

aware of the work still required

such as repairs to the roading and

footpath network and are looking

to the city council to achieve this.

Mailbox surprises

A MYSTERIOUS good

Samaritan has been leaving

flowers and inspirational notes

in mailboxes throughout central

and South New Brighton.

Residents have been posting

the gifts they have found on the

Peoples Independent Republic

of New Brighton Facebook page.

A range of notes from “laugh,

love live” to “explore the world”

and “you are enough” along

with flowers and lolly-pops have

been found.

The public has responded positively

online with comments

including “little things like this

can mean the world” and “love

living in south Brighton”.

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.

SCHOOLS

Waste solution at Haeata

A PROJECT is under way to

help reduce the amount of waste

made by 3D printers at Haeata

Community Campus.

Objet D’Fox designer Michael

Fox has taken up residency at

the school’s designer space to

build a machine aimed at turning

plastic into filament for 3D

printers.

It is due to the school having

three 3D printers which are

constantly in use with students

creating, tweaking and revising

designs for numerous projects,

including rockets, jewellery and

more.

Year 10 student Ethan Matten

said the process creates a lot of

waste.

Having a designer in residence

has given Ethan a chance to see

all sides of the design process.

“The machine that Michael

is making will help reduce our

waste,” he said.

Designing and testing his

product in the school’s design

space has allowed Mr Fox to

speed up the testing phase.

“The more minds focused on

it, the more results we’ll get and

the quicker we’ll get to them,”

said Mr Fox.

GREAT WORK: Pupils Shikarna, Lila, Brooke, Julia and

Chloe helped raise more than $800 as part of Queenspark

Primary School’s annual Jump Jam Cupcake Sale. Two

teams from the school will compete at the Jump Jam

regional competition next month and the money raised will

go towards the pupils’ costumes for the event.

A NEW twist has been taken

on one of the world’s most well

known fairytales.

A modernised production

of The Wizard of Oz was

brought to life by Chisnallwood

Intermediate pupils last week

with the aim of showcasing the

school’s values.

Head of arts Kate Thomson

wrote the original play, Dorothy’s

Journey, over the Christmas

holidays with a goal of making a

production more relatable to her

pupils.

“It is just really a story about

what children go through.

Learning about responsibility,

respect, resilience and relationships,”

she said.

Set at Emerald Intermediate,

the story featured modernised

personalities inspired by the

original characters from The

Wizard of Oz.

Pupils played the roles of

Scarlett Crow, who lacked

responsibility; Tim ‘The Man’

Steel, who thought friendship

was overrated and lacked

relationships; and Leon King

who lacked courage and

resilience. The antagonist is Will

Wicked, the school bully who

makes hurtful posts online about

other pupils in the school.

The plot sees the protagonist,

Dorothy, bring the three unlikely

characters together to stop Will

Wicked.

Miss Thomson said she

“I have always loved The

danced as Dorothy in one of

my ballet productions . . . so it

has always been a production

close to my heart,” Miss

Thomson said.

About 40-45 pupils featured in

the cast and worked backstage.

“Just seeing them bring it

rewarding,” she said.

Kids engaging through basketball

• By Eddy Bramley

IT’S 6.30AM yet 20-something

kids dressed in basketball gear

scurry in to Haeata Community

Campus’ gym eager to get

started.

Jeremy Faumuinā, a navigator

at Haeata, runs a before-school

basketball programme, an initiative

started early 2018 to provide

a place for students, staff and

wider community to connect

through sport.

“When Haeata first started we

really struggled to find our own

culture so we thought what if

we were to set up some space for

kids to come in just to engage,

where it didn’t matter if they

were any good at basketball,” he

said.

“And just find some sense of

belonging, where they’re safe and

can just be themselves.”

Faumuinā’s philosophy is

based on engaging his students

with members of the wider community.

Youth workers from

Christchurch kaupapa Māori

service He Waka Tapu and

Canterbury Rams player Tony

Tolovae are regular faces here

in the gym and support the

students on and off the court.

“Part of my role as a navigator

was to then put it back out there

to the community outside of the

school. We knew that if our kids

saw us with our police, youth

workers, community agencies,

and saw the unity with them,

that it made sense for them to

trust them as well,” he said.

Before the students step on the

court they join Faumuinā for

karakia (Māori prayer). He asks

them to protect the whare and

leave swearing and trash talk at

the door.

They’re urged to respect one

another, play hard and leave

everything on the court.

Everyone who enters this gym

is part of a family and Jeremy

says that family is built on trust,

safety and respect.

“I can’t control what goes on

outside these four walls, but I

can control this and the whole

mindset is that this gym is the

kids’ too, so let’s look after this.”

As the game tips off and the

music starts blaring, the gym

comes to life. The rules are simple,

first to three wins, winner

stays on.

It’s fast-paced and when the

students step onto the court, they

leave having given it their all.

The number one value here is

manaakitanga, showing generosity

and respect to one another.

Most of the students come

from different backgrounds and

different hāpori (year groups).

There are students from Kaunuku

(year 3 to 6), Kōrepo (year

7 to 10) and Ihutai (year 11 to

13), yet they all knit together

through the values of family and

respect.

Many of Faumuinā’s students

consistently turn up late for

school, but on basketball days

they’re eager to get involved and

regularly turn up before him.

“We initially started at 7.30

and then kids were turning up

at seven and then we were like

‘okay this is crazy’, so we pushed

it back to 6.30,” he said.

“Then kids were coming at six

and then it just got silly, so we

made it a strict 6.30 kick-off.

“But that was when we knew

that we had something . . .

(when) we had kids queueing up

outside of the doors at 6 o’clock

we knew we were on to a winner.”

Haeata teacher Maddie Hullena

cheers her students on from

the sideline.

She joins in the game from

time to time and comes along to

encourage her kids to use basketball

as a release from other areas

of their lives.

“A lot of the kids’ backgrounds

generation. The group meets for a

are quite rough and they use this

as quite a big outlet,” she says. “It

brings a level of calmness.”

Ms Hullena said she’s seen

a huge improvement in her

students’ engagement in class on

the days they play before-school

basketball.

“Those kids that come along

consistently on the Thursdays are

showing a real difference in the

classroom after the basketball,

compared to say on a Monday

when they’re coming back after a

weekend.

“It’s all about small,

simple procedures that the

kids are picking up on and

they bring those back into the

classroom.”

Meshach Faafoe, one of Ms

Hullena’s students and a regular

at the before-school games, says

SPORTS

the sessions encourage him to

get to school on time.

“Usually I get here late and I’m

still half sleep, but after basketball

I’m awake and I get to class

on time.”

Haeata Community Campus

navigator Neihana Goodrick,

who has over nine years

experience in youth support

work, said it’s all about building

relationships with students

through their shared love of

sport.

“So if something tough is going

on, we have a relationship

where they feel comfortable

about coming and talking to

us about it. It breaks down that

initial barrier.”

As the game rolls on,

Faumuinā spends his time on

and off the bench engaging with

students. For some, it’s a friendly

bit of banter, others are questioned

about their school work.

Regardless of the topic of conversation,

his passion for them is

obvious.

“It’s just this whole methodology

and psychology of being able

to engage with them through

basketball. It’s all about family,

friends and fun.”

He Waka Tapu health promoter

Ra Hazel is also on the

sidelines.

He said the opportunity to be

around the students and help

build their self-esteem is the

most rewarding aspect of the sessions.

“It’s creating that safe space

for the kids, where you get to

just sit down after you’ve played

and just catch up. Anything that

will help build their mana is

worthwhile.”

As the session draws to a close,

the students, staff and teachers

come together for a final karakia.

Faumuinā thanks them for their

efforts and encourages the students

to carry it through to their

classrooms. As they hurry off

to class, the music cuts and the

atmosphere fades, but Faumuinā

is confident of a job well done.

THERE’S A history behind

Lyndon McKendry’s

referee whistle.

It was originally her

father’s. He started

refereeing in 1958

before passing

down the little

silver device to

McKendry. It has

now been in action

for about 60

years.

McKendry is the

Canterbury Rugby

Football Union’s

referee education

officer.

Like her, she

says women who grew

up watching their fathers

control rugby games often

pursued a refereeing career.

In spite of this, in the

Canterbury region there

are only four female referees

out of a total 200.

As the referee education

officer at the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union,

McKendry’s responsibilities

include recruitment

training and development

for all referees from Cheviot

through to Dunsandel.

She says the CRFU

would love to see more females

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

“It’s a full-time job.

You’ve got to train right,

eat right, and prepare

yourself mentally and

strategically.”

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

day and aspires to take the

field alongside the Black

Ferns with her whistle in

hand.

“If you can’t get into the

provincial rugby teams,

you can make it as a

referee. It’s not any less of a

position to be in.”

With the likes of former

Black Fern Rebecca

Mahoney now refereeing

the men’s Mitre 10 Cup,

there might soon come a

day when we see a female

refereeing in the rugby

Research supports

EyE hEaLTh

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

Nutritional researchers

have discovered a range of

nutrients that are essential

for eye health. Some

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

have potent antioxidant ability and help

protect the eyes from damage

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in

landmark research to not only provide

potent eye protection but may even help

reverse some of the signs of age-related

macular degeneration (AMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in

potent antioxidants may help protect

the lens and retina from damage and

reduce the risk of cataracts. They also may

help improve blood supply to the eye,

strengthen the small capillaries of

the eye and may help improve

night vision, may alleviate

many eye ailments

including eye fatigue

that may be caused

by reading, driving and

computers.

Eyebright may help normalise eye

pressure and reduce eye allergies.

Taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. It may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye

fatigue, bloodshot eyes and maintain good

vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

It provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s)

that are potent antioxidants that may

protect eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic

amount help provide comprehensive eye

protection, may slow and possibly even

help reverse eye damage that could lead

to loss of vision. All these nutrients are

available in an economical one a day easy

to swallow capsule.

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

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

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.
