Primary school key asset for Waltham community

A NEW report has revealed

Waltham is the most diverse

community in the city.

The city council’s Aspirations

of Children and Youth in

Waltham said the suburb is

the most diverse and Waltham

Primary School was identified

as the key community asset for

the area.

Principal Gordon Caddie said

his love for the community has

only grown over the 14 years he

has been working at the school.

“I think a school in any area

is important. But we have such

a diverse community, it’s more

important. People know what to

we have a stabilising influence.”

RATEPAYERS HAD to fork

out $3079 for three sessions

for an independent facilitator

to resolve disputes within a

community board.

Last week, it was revealed that

problems within the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board led to a closed door

meeting with Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and chief executive

Karleen Edwards.

To resolve conflicts, board

members requested meetings

with an independent facilitator

in October last year.

The city council would not say

who the facilitator was due to

privacy reasons and commercial

sensitivity.

The money came from the

elected members’ professional

development budget.

Board chairman Mike Mora

declined to comment on

whether the $3079 spend was

appropriate or not.

But he said the funding is

often used for training elected

members.

Gardeners threaten young mum

Claimed they

would cut

her head off

• By Anan Zaki

A YOUNG Halswell mum says

she was terrified after being

threatened with beheading for

exposing what she believed were

bogus tree cutters on social

media.

The threat led to police

intervention and now the two

offenders, both women, say they

are sorry for the message on Facebook

and the terror it caused.

Police say it is another example

of threats being made on social

media which can have terrifying

affects for the victim.

The incident happened about

two weeks ago when a group

calling itself 4 Seasons Tree Lopping

Services was door knocking

for business in Halswell.

The young mum, who did not

want to be identified, believed

they were not a genuine company

after she viewed them on

security camera footage looking

around the front of her property.

Her partner had earlier told

them to go away. The young

mum then posted images of the

group on the Halswell Community

page with a warning that

they “don’t look legit”.

That prompted a response

from the tree cutters in a private

message to the young mum: “We

know where you live. We’re coming

over for you motherf******

and cut your f****** head off.”

They followed that up with

another message stressing they

were a bona fide company.

Said the young mum: “They

Seasons workers

mother’s house.

The pair later

threatened

the woman on

Facebook.

said they know where I live and

. . . I thought ‘oh my god, I think

they are waiting for me at my

house’.”

Senior Constable Deb Smalley

said an investigation had determined

there was no danger to

the young mum and the beheading

threat was hollow.

She said the threat was a “typical

example of trash talk” on

social media.

Police ordered the two women

responsible to apologise to the

young mum.

“It’s a couple of young women

talking nonsense who will be

held accountable for their actions,”

Senior Constable Smalley

said.

The young mum wants the

pair charged.

One of the women who posted

the threat said: “I wasn’t happy

that she put our faces on social

media. I didn’t mean to say it but

I was really angry at the time.

“I’m not going to do it [cut her

head off], but I was saying it to

make her scared of putting it on

Facebook.”

The owner of 4 Seasons

Tree Lopping Services, Danny

Scanlan, said his staff will

apologise for their threats.

He said he is sorry for what

happened.

He also denied claims his

company was not genuine, and

was unaware of another arborist

company in Christchurch called

Four Seasons Tree Care.

His company was not registered,

but that would change

soon, said Mr Scanlan.

“The 4 Seasons [Tree Lopping

Services] we’re doing is the one

that my uncle used to do. When

he moved to Brisbane I was

taking over the 4 Seasons,” Mr

Scanlan said.

Turning life around through love

Riccarton addiction

advocate Damian Holt

recently received a

community award from

the city council for his

public artwork. The

57-year-old spoke to

reporter Anan Zaki about

his love of art and how

it helped turn his life

around

ART HAS long been a cause of

fascination for Damian Holt.

When he was a young boy, his

only interests were painting and

English Football, more specifically

Leeds United.

He let those interests slip away

in his teenage years as he started

substance abuse at age 17. He let

drugs take over his body.

First it was heroin, then

marijuana and alcohol. He used

drugs until he was 38.

“My addiction was directly

linked to depression.

“Instead of going to the doctor

I was my own doctor. But I was

actually making my depression

worse by what I was putting into

my body,” Mr Holt said.

He believes his depression is

just part his genetic make-up.

The revolution

is here now!

HEALING: Painting murals helped Damian Holt recover from his own personal battle with

addiction.

“I think I was just born with it.

I had it as a child.

“I still endure depression but

I just handle it a much different

way instead of drugs,” Mr Holt

said.

Regaining the love for art was

“I was under-achieving and I

I woke up and decided to be honest

recover due to the time it takes to

paint, he said.

“When someone gives up a

lifetime of addiction there is a

massive hole that’s there.

“If you think about it, if you’re

an alcoholic, it takes half an hour

to buy your drinks. You drink

for four to five hours and you’re

hungover for three or four more

hours.”

Painting a mural often took

about 40 hours across multiple

days and that helped fill the void

left by drugs, Mr Holt said.

“Three of four sessions of

alcohol or drug abuse equals one

mural.

“The drug abuse cost a lot of

money with nothing to show for

it, and the murals cost far less

and is there for perpetuity,” Mr

Holt said.

He is now on “default mode”

on staying clean.

“It’s a habit to stay away from

drugs, and I don’t think about my

addiction,” Mr Holt said.

He now helps others recover

from addictions at the non-profit

group Mental Health Advocacy

and Peer Support.

“I thought it was time to hand

something back as I’ve obviously

got personal experience in

addiction and recovery.”

of art recognised

Art is one thing he recommends

to people going through

addictions but he says there are

other ways.

“It works for me, but what I

generally do with my clientele

is take them back to before they

were on drugs and find out what

their interests were between the

ages of 10 and 15.

“For me between the ages 10

and 15, I loved sketching. Art

and English Football were my

passions and I often sketched

English football players,” Mr Holt

said.

He often drew sketches of his

favourite player, Leeds United

goalkeeper David Harvey, as he

had the same initials as Mr Holt.

Hobbies that people had when

they were younger can help fill

the void left by drugs, he said.

Mr Holt made his art

hobby public when he started the

Brockworth Art Gallery in 2012.

The gallery is along the train

tracks behind Brockworth Pl,

Riccarton.

Mr Holt never had an interest

in street art until then.

International street artist

Banksy that inspired him to start

the street art.

“I watched Banksy’s film

Exit Through the Giftshop and I

became really interested in street

art.

“But I didn’t want to cross the

police lines and get into trouble

for illicit art,” Mr Holt said.

He met Kenyan artist Jess De

Boer who was living in the city at

the time.

“Jess and I got permission to

paint the wall of Margaret Stoddart

[Retirement Village] but she

had to go back to Kenya immediately

after we got permission.

“She gave me all the paint that

she had gathered and because

I lived in [Riccarton], I started

painting in 2012 with about

five or six paintings,” Mr Holt

said.

When more vines on the walls

along the railway walkway were

removed, he had more canvas to

paint on.

Mr Holt said his street art has a

point of difference.

“I paint with paintbrushes, not

spray.

“My second point of difference

is I wanted to set up street art

in the layout of an art gallery so

that for people that walk through

there it’s like an art gallery,” he

said.

Mr Holt felt a lot of pride in

looking at his work but says they

are not there to show off his

talents.

“It’s simply there to colour up

the morning, evenings or days of

whoever that’s walking there.

“It’s just there to distract people

from the mundane walk of life,”

he said.

Mr Holt doesn’t have any plans

for any future public murals and

likes the way it is. His last painting

was in March.

“I quite like having my own

little spot and I like it that it’s

tucked away and you kind of

have to look for it,” he said.

But art will always remain a

hobby for him at home.

Mr Holt had also had some

advice for people going through

substance abuse.

“Recovery can be achieved, two

things that are key to a recovery

is acceptance that you’ve got a

problem and personal honesty

around everything that you do

in life.

“Hang in there, it does get

better. Sometimes people find it

really hard to break a habit, but

once you break the habit it gets

better,” Mr Holt said.

Charity box targeted

• By Anan Zaki

A SALVATION Army store in

Hornby has had enough of people

taking donated goods.

Items from the store’s afterhours

donation box have gone

missing, or have ended up damaged,

Salvation Army Community

Ministries Hornby director

Kevin Waugh said.

Mr Waugh said the donation

box is left open to fit a variety of

goods that the store may receive

and counts on people’s honesty.

But good Samaritans often

alerted the store.

“People from the community

have said to us that during afterhours

they’ve seen stuff dropped

off and then seeing another car

come in and go through everything,”

he said.

Mr Waugh is disappointed that

people have taken advantage of

the box.

“It is [disappointing that] some

in our community has decided

they would like to go through

them.

“Stuff disappears, worst case

is they throw it all around and

make it unusable,” Mr Waugh

said.

Common items that go missing

are clothing, pots and furniture.

Police suggested additional

security but the store will take

another approach.

Mr Waugh is asking people to

stop donating goods after-hours

and phone the store instead.

“If you’ve got donations and

you want to give it to us, call us

and we’ll make arrangements to

pick it up if it’s after-hours,” Mr

Waugh said.

People have also been breaking

into waste bins, creating a

nuisance to the store, Mr Waugh

said.

“When we go to use it, it’s full

of other people’s rubbish. So

we lock it but people have been

breaking into it.”

The store has gone through

seven padlocks this year, Mr

Waugh said.

He said the “annoyances”

distracts the charity from it’s job,

which is to help the community.

Hornby director

is upset with

people sealing

Mr Waugh believes the store’s

location on the corner of Halswell

Junction Rd and Columbia Ave

may have contributed.

“It’s an industrial area, it’s

open, there’s all sorts of ways

around the building nobody’s

there to say: ‘Don’t do that’,” he

said.

The store has been at it’s current

location since December last

year.

“We won’t relocate just

because this is happening. I

|guess it’s part of what happens

at op-shops.

outside is always a temptation to

take,” Mr Waugh said.

much stronger together and the

disputes are in the past.

“I think the meetings have

been run very effectively

by Mike Mora and Helen

Broughton as the deputy,” Ms

Chu said.

Another cause of

disagreement last month, has

now been resolved, Mr Mora

said.

There were disagreements

within the board over whether

Mr Mora should make a

deputation on behalf of the

board to city councillors about

$70,000 being granted to

KartSport Canterbury.

Mr Mora said board

members agreed to him |

deputising for them, but he

chose not to as he was confident

of the outcome.

The $70,000 to help the

Halswell-based kart club move

to McLeans Island was granted

as he’d hoped on Thursday.

Board members also met

with Dr Edwards and head of

community support, governance

and partnerships John Filsell.

Dr Edwards said it was a

planned, informal information

sharing visit which she has with

all boards every year.

“I have visited community

boards to update them on

key work under way including

the council’s strategic priorities,

the initiation of the annual

plan process, the residents’

survey.

“And, given that the code

of conduct was established

at the beginning of their term

and it is now midway through,

to get some feedback on how it

is working [and it’s] relevance

etc.”

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.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Waltham: A suburb of contrasts

A new report shows

Waltham is the city’s

most diverse and

rapidly changing

suburb. Reporter

Julia Evans talks to the

people who live there

LONG-TERM: Leanne Ireland is the third generation of her family

to live in her Waltham home – her children are the fourth.

ON ONE side of a fence cream

paint flakes off a sun-damaged

weatherboard 1920s villa.

The grass is brown and a rusted

scooter discarded on the porch

looks like it hasn’t been ridden

for years.

On the other side there are

six identical brick townhouses

standing to attention. No grass,

no scooter.

The only noticeable difference

are the cars parked outside.

This is Waltham – a suburb of

contrasts, character and change.

While the population has been

called “transient” in the new

Aspirations of Children and Youth

in Waltham city council report,

at its heart is a vibrant, diverse

and strong community. Whether

that be at the park, the school, the

community centre or the pub.

“Participants noted the caring,

resilient community and good

neighbours are valuable,” the

report said.

Leanne Ireland is the third

generation of her family to live in

her Waltham home.

Her now deceased grandparents

Gwendoline and Roy bought

the house when they first came to

Christchurch from Wales in the

early 1980s. The house was left in

her name when her grandparents

passed away.

Her father Malcolm also called

it home – he installed heating

and insulation into the cold brick

house when Ms Ireland was pregnant

with her first child.

“It is a connection to my

grandparents. But since they’ve

moved out we’ve done some

renovations and I’ve made it my

own. Sometimes I think you can

still feel them around . . . it’s a

family space.”

Now Ms Ireland’s three

children Malachi, Isaiah and

Shardesha are the fourth

generation.

They’ve lived in the house all

their life – Isaiah and Shardesha

go to Waltham Primary School, a

five-minute walk away.

She said she’s seen the good

and the bad over the last two

decades.

“I used to always pop into

the house when I was a kid. I

stayed the night all the time . . . I

remember the area was very rundown

then but there were always

good neighbours and people

around,” Ms Ireland said.

“It still is run-down and a

poorer area. Not a lot of people

know about it. When you talk

to people from other parts of

the city they go: ‘Waltham?

Where’s that?’ And you have to

tell them its close to Opawa and

Sydenham.”

But Ms Ireland said she would

not live in another part of the

city.

“It’s close to everywhere to get

to amenities . . . and the area is so

diverse. There’s older generations,

young people, young families, a

lot of children. Everyone’s here.”

The residents were much like

the houses.

“You have the old-style bungalows

and the new townhouses

right next to each other.”

Ms Ireland has been volunteering

at the Waltham Community

Cottage for the last four or five

years. She lost track.

“It’s a chance for me to give

back to the community. I was a

chef before I had my children so

I run the community lunches. I

get to provide healthy food and

home baking for those who don’t

otherwise get it.”

She said she would continue

supporting the area’s growth

for the foreseeable future

and her children enjoyed the

neighbourhood and school.

FAST FACTS

•1038 people live in

Waltham.

•Waltham has a higher

population of residents of

Maori descent, who are

born overseas and who

speak English as a second

language than the rest of

Christchurch.

•It has a short tenure

population with a high

proportion of low cost

rental accommodation.

•The local population had

a boom post-earthquake

as a result of housing

intensification and proximity

to the central city.

•11.8 per cent of the

population are on the

domestic purposes

benefit, compared to the

Christchurch average of 4.1

per cent.

•7.6 per cent of the

population are unemployed

and 27.4 per cent are single

parent households.

•Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton

is the local representative

from Brougham St south.

While Linwood Ward city

councillor Yani Johanson

covers the north.

Long-time resident Rex

Robinson calls himself the

“neighbourhood watch man.”

“I went to a meeting once, I

think. Nothing happens here.

Someone’s car got broken into a

while ago but that’s about it.”

He said all the area needs is

someone to dish out safety pamphlets

when they arrive.

“There’s always a bit of trouble

everywhere. But it’s good here,

we’re happy. There’s no room for

crime, there are so many people

around here.”

“Plus, I give the kids lectures

at Halloween. When they come

knocking on our door, I tell

them to make sure they don’t

grow up to be criminals,” Mr

Robinson said.

He said there were a lot of

children in the area these days,

but he puts that down to the

area’s rapid growth following

the earthquake.

Waltham has become more

densely populated since the

earthquakes with blocks of flats

and townhouses springing up

daily.

“It’s diverse. We have a German

guy next door. It makes it

interesting.”

Although he said the area

doesn’t get much publicity –

“no news is good news.” The

report said Waltham has a higher

population of residents identifying

as of Maori descent, who are

born overseas and who speak

English as a second language than

Christchurch as a whole.

“The local population has

almost experienced a boom

post-earthquake as a result of

housing intensification and the

proximity to the central city for

migrant workers.”

But the number of facilities

for young people had remained

the same. This likely resulted in

a strain on some facilities and

organisations.

HAPPY:

Rex

Robinson

said there’s

not much

crime in

Waltham.

Fire rages, homes at risk

GORDON CADDIE has been

watching the area flourish for

the last 14 years from behind

the principal’s desk at Waltham

Primary School.

“I think a school in any area

is important. But we have such

a diverse community, it’s more

important. People know what

to expect when they come here

so we have a stabilising influence.”

The school was identified as the

most significant community asset

in the area by the city council.

“Participants reported that

Waltham Primary School is one

of the best community assets,”

the report said.

But its roll has ballooned by

85 per cent following the earthquakes.

“It only slowed down when the

Ministry of Education made us

put in an enrolment zone. We’ve

got no space for children from

out of zone at all, we’ve have to

turn families away, which is quite

difficult,” he said.

“Growth has its challenges

which come with it.”

He said the school reflects the

varied nature of the suburb.

“There are industrial areas,

GROWING

UP: Gordon

Caddie has

been principal

of Waltham

Primary School

for 14 years.

Housing New Zealand houses,

a lot of immigrant families that

are renting, as well as older villas

. . . the school is the same. We’re

teaching children whose parents

and grandparents went to the

school as well as kids who have

been in New Zealand for two

days.”

Mr Caddie said Waltham has

a good future – but a little work

needed to be done first.

“We sat down and looked at

it and one of the biggest things

that needs to change is making

Waltham Park safer for young

families.”

It started out as a joke.

But the joke stuck and

from 1866 the south-eastern

suburb became known as

Waltham.

Charles Prince, a formerschool

master from the United

Kingdom, arrived in Lyttelton

in 1858.

By 1860 he had set up a

china shop named Sydenham

House and was advertising in

the Lyttelton Times – although

in 1867 he had filed for

bankruptcy.

From there Mr Prince set up

his 12-room boarding house,

called Waltham House. It was

built on Gasworks Rd, now

Waltham Rd.

In 1866 Mr Prince’s

tenants decided to play a

joke on their landlord and

•Turn to page 12

set an advertisement to the

paper, which said they held a

meeting and decided to make

the area Waltham after their

house.

The ad appeared on October

27, 1866 and by 1870 Waltham

was a household name.

The name comes from the

area in Lincolnshire in the

United Kingdom, Waltham,

which literally translates to

village by the moor.

Sydenham was then also

named after Mr Prince’s

former china shop during the

late 1870s.

Waltham was originally

part of the Sydenham

Borough and was

amalgamated with the

Christchurch City Council in

1903.

Fire rages, homes at risk

COME

TOGETHER:

The Brougham

duty manager

Amarpreet Singh

has been living

and working in

the area for two

months.

THE BROUGHAM pub is a

key part of the Waltham community.

When you walk in you spot a

juke box, dart boards, pool tables

and gaming room. The jackpot

was $865.50.

At noon on Friday there were

two punters attached to the pokies,

stopping only for a regular

ciggie break and to claim their

winnings.

But much like the rest of the

suburb, the pub is a mash-up

of old and new with Jay-Z and

Snoop Dogg dominating the

playlist.

Armarpreet Singh is the young

face of the pub. He has only been

the duty manager for the last two

months.

Mr Singh said Monday to

Thursdays were especially busy

with locals gathering after work

or dinner to catch up on the

area’s goings on over a jug and

game of pool.

“We have a lot of fixed customers,

but then on Friday, Saturday

and Sunday it’s people from all

over town. It’s very busy,” he

said.

He hasn’t learnt their names

yet, but it’s only a matter of time.

Even Mr Singh himself lives

only a two-minute drive from

work, recently moving up from

Timaru.

“I was in Auckland and then

Timaru. I like it here better than

Timaru, but maybe it’s not as

good as Auckland.”

The history of the Waltham

Arms Hotel in the area

dates back to 1862.

The original building was

demolished to make

way for the widening of

Brougham St, which is said

to have split the Waltham

community in two.

SUPPORT: Adrienne Carmichael and Linnie Neale say the

Waltham area is growing for the better.

ADRIENNE Carmichael has

run the Waltham Community

Cottage for 24 years.

“I just love the community.

It’s got great people who support

each other. The people are just

wonderful.”

But she said the suburb

has suffered from being disjointed.

“It all started when Brougham

St went down the middle, cutting

it right in half. Since then its

been about bringing it altogether

. . . it’s moving forward really

nicely.”

Ms Carmichael said she has

seen the area changing for the

better. But there is still a way to

go.

“Particularly since the quakes,

people’s attitudes are changing.

There are more permanent

residents.”

She said at the moment, one of

the biggest focuses for improving

the community was Waltham

Park.

“The playground is a concern.

We want to make it more userfriendly

because people in this

area don’t go away, they don’t

have transport or finances to go

further away.”

The report said the key barriers

to participation in the area

are cost of activities and lack of

transport.

Ms Carmichael said isolation

was a major issue in the area, often

due to financial constraints -

which is what the cottage aimed

to combat.

“We’re always busy. The whole

idea is that we bring people

together and it works. The area

changes and so the things we

offer change too,” she said.

The centre offers playgroup,

fall prevention courses, as well as

ukelele lessons, depression support

and Chi Gong Tai Chi.

It also raises money to offer

local children opportunities they

may not otherwise afford.

“Anything that helps the

children.”

The city council is now

investigating scope for

development of more activities

and programmes aimed at

Waltham’s young people and is

working with the community to

redevelop the park.

CASHMERE High School

basketballer Nic Wenmoth

wants to leave it all on the

court with his teammates

one last time.

The 17-year-old small

forward will be a crucial

part of the Cashmere

squad as the two-time

South Island champions

play at the national secondary

schools championships

at Palmerston North

this week.

Nic was named in the

Canterbury Basketball Association

under-23 all-star

five, while teammate Luca

Williams was named in

the under-20 team.

“It’s quite amazing to

be recognised in that class

against university and

senior players like that,” he

said. “It certainly gives me

a lot of confidence.”

The year 13 student said

he was eager to make his

third and final Cashmere

campaign a good one.

“Last year we finished

13th at nationals and that

wasn’t what we wanted,”

he said. “We lost to teams

we had to beat.”

Wenmoth said many of

the year 12 and 13 players

had come through the

age-grades together and he

believed that was an asset

on court.

“It does feel like the end

of a good run and I know

many of us see this as one

last chance to put Cashmere’s

name up in lights.”

opponents and he wanted

to change that.

“A lot of North Island

schools tend to (underestimate)

what we can do,”

he said.

‘This squad can’t wait to

show them what we can

do.”

Wenmoth said he has

enjoyed being a starter

this year after playing an

impact role over the past

two seasons.

He said the team is capable

of winning a national

title on Saturday. If they

can make the quarterfinals,

he said anything

would be possible from

there.

SENIOR LIVING

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years

and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

SOUTHERN VIEW

a money-back guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone

can phone for an appointment.

Encouraging women

to become rugby refs

• By Zahra Shahtahmasebi

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

Lyndon

McKendry

would love to see more females

picking up a whistle.

“Rugby is a game for everyone

– gender shouldn’t

be a barrier,” said McKendry.

To increase female

involvement next

year, the CRFU

plans to target

women who have

played this year,

as well as former

players.

It will also

emphasise the

introductory

referee

programme You

Make The Call,

which offers

participants eight

level three NCEA credits

in Christchurch schools,

particularly girls-only

schools.

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

weight sessions.

“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.

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

Addington gym boxers in

ring for national champs

• By Jacob Page

ADDINGTON’S Riverside

boxing coach Matt Neale

could not be happier with

his boxers performances

ahead of the national

amateur championships

which start tomorrow at

the Hornby Workingman’s

Club.

Elite team members

Sunny Teki-Clark won a

bout by knockout against

Otago’s Rhiane Bishop a

fortnight ago, which was

an ideal preparation for

the defence of his 81kg

national title.

“Knockouts are pretty

rare in amateur boxing,”

Neale said. “Sunny had

fought this guy five times

before so to win like that

shows what type of form

he is in,” Neale said.

SPORTS

A lawyer by day, Teki-

Clark has found an extra

gear in the ring over the

past 12 months,

“Sunny has really impressed

me the past few

months, he’s miles ahead

of the others in terms of

motivation

Alex Oliver, who will

compete in the elite 75kg

class, lost his bout on the

same card after stepping

up a weight class to take on

Round 12’s Whetu Heki.

“I thought he won it

to be honest, but he

came back the next night

and looked really impressive.”

Both men fought on

the under card of Bowyn

Morgan’s Asia Pacific title

bout, which he won by

defeating Australian Commonwealth

Games representative

Luke Woods.

The next night he fought

in Kaiapoi against an opponent

of a similar weight

and won convincingly.

Nate Bates will compete

in the 69kg youth grade,

Sophie Mullally will

compete in the 54kg youth

female class and Thomas

Hanford in the 60kg youth

male class.

Neale said he expected

each of his five fighters to

be genuine title contenders,

especially with the

benefit of performing in

front of a home crowd.

The tournament finishes

on Saturday.

Downie on track for

NZ cycling debut

• 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.

Erin Downie

“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

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.

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.

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.
