roading<br />

report<br />

expected<br />

by Xmas<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

A REPORT looking at the state<br />

of traffic on some Papanui roads<br />

is in the works.<br />

The report was requested<br />

almost a year ago by the<br />

Papanui-Innes Community<br />

Board and will include reviews<br />

of Sawyers Arms Rd, Langdons<br />

Rd, Main North Rd and Sisson<br />

Drive.<br />

It comes after a<br />

proposal to install<br />

bus and cycle<br />

lanes down parts<br />

of Main North Rd<br />

was approved.<br />

A city council<br />

spokeswoman said Ali Jones<br />

the report was<br />

expected to be received before<br />

Christmas. Community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones said the<br />

report had taken “a while” to<br />

put together but it would give<br />

the board a chance to look at<br />

how the area could develop.<br />

“With the cycleway going in,<br />

we wanted to be sure we had a<br />

good run of pattern of use in a<br />

completed environment, so [the<br />

report] has taken a little while,<br />

but we understand why.”<br />

Harewood Rd too big – study<br />

Likely cause<br />

of speeding<br />

and crashes<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

HAREWOOD RD is too big for<br />

the number of vehicles using<br />

it, a new city council study has<br />

revealed.<br />

About 70 to 90 per cent of the<br />

road is not being used, meaning<br />

motorists are more likely to<br />

speed.<br />

“Approximately 70 to 90 per<br />

cent of available capacity is<br />

not being used, which allows<br />

vehicles to travel at greater<br />

speeds. Therefore it is highly<br />

likely that this finding is linked<br />

to observed speeding issues,”<br />

the city council’s Harewood Rd<br />

Corridor Study said.<br />

“There is double the amount<br />

of vehicle lane capacity provided<br />

than what is required. With<br />

more lanes there are more<br />

conflict points at intersections,<br />

more complex give way<br />

situations at intersections and<br />

lower levels of service for other<br />

road-users.”<br />

The study said this is an<br />

underlying cause of crashes at<br />

intersections on Harewood Rd.<br />

The road is a minor arterial<br />

road, but was developed as a<br />

major arterial route. However,<br />

traffic data shows an ongoing<br />

trend of decreasing vehicle<br />

Christchurch Casino’s<br />

buffet is back!<br />

WED - SUN<br />

demand. “The legacy of being<br />

designed as a major route,<br />

and historically designed to<br />

accommodate high volumes<br />

EMPTY: Up to 90 per cent<br />

of space on Harewood Rd is<br />

unused, according to a new<br />

city council study.<br />

at higher speeds, whilst not<br />

carrying especially high<br />

volumes of traffic in present day,<br />

is resulting in speed and safety<br />

concerns.”<br />

Motorists are instead using<br />

Sawyers Arms Rd, connecting<br />

Johns Rd and QE II Drive. It<br />

is expected that the traffic will<br />

continue to drop.<br />

Until 2010, the speed limit on<br />

Harewood Rd was 70km/h but<br />

was dropped to 50km/h. The<br />

report said because the road’s<br />

design was not changed, there is<br />

a high-degree of speeding.<br />

“The over-provision of design<br />

geometry is likely a major factor<br />

behind current issues with<br />

vehicle speeds and safety.”<br />

The study said the road’s<br />

design needs to be changed<br />

to have fewer conflict points,<br />

improved safety and service, as<br />

well as slower speeds.<br />

There is a plan to develop<br />

a cycleway on Harewood Rd,<br />

which would reduce the number<br />

of cyclist-related crashes.<br />

HEAVY VEHICLE CONCERNS<br />

Heavy vehicles could be restricted<br />

on some residential Belfast<br />

streets. Resident Ali Kerr voiced<br />

her concerns to the Fendalton-<br />

Waimairi-Harewood Community<br />

Board over heavy vehicles driving<br />

through and parking on Sefton<br />

Drive, Englefield Rd and Lagan St.<br />

The community board requested<br />

council staff look into restricting<br />

heavy vehicles from the streets.<br />

PEDESTRIAN CROSSING<br />

Work to install a signalised<br />

pedestrian crossing outside St<br />

Andrew’s College will start this<br />

month. The crossing will be<br />

installed on Papanui Rd at the<br />

intersection with Chapter St,<br />

and work will continue until<br />

late January. Night work will be<br />

undertaken in the first week of<br />

construction from 7pm-6am,<br />

Sunday to Friday. Day work will<br />

be undertaken from 7am-7pm,<br />

Monday to Saturday. Motorists<br />

are advised to take care and<br />

expect delays.<br />

INTERSECTION CLOSED<br />

The intersection of Vagues and<br />

Main North Rds in Papanui<br />

St Albans community<br />

centre plans revealed<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

THE ST Albans Community<br />

Centre is one step closer to being<br />

rebuilt now the final designs have<br />

been approved.<br />

Plans for the $3.1 million project<br />

were approved by the Papanui-<br />

Innes Community Board, and<br />

construction will start in the first<br />

half of next year.<br />

The 399 sq m centre will have<br />

a hall with a stage,<br />

three meeting<br />

rooms, an office, a<br />

kitchen, a courtyard<br />

area and ample<br />

parking<br />

The original centre<br />

Lynne<br />

O’Keefe<br />

was demolished after<br />

being damaged in<br />

the earthquakes, so<br />

the community had to use a temporary<br />

building for several years<br />

which was donated to the Shirley<br />

Community Trust in January.<br />

St Albans working group member<br />

Lynne O’Keefe said the new<br />

centre would be warmly welcomed<br />

as its members have been operating<br />

out of the St Albans Tennis<br />

Club for the past nine months.<br />

“We’ve been operating out of<br />

the tennis club so that we can<br />

keep all these community projects<br />

going, and have a place for all our<br />

groups,” she said.<br />

“It has been a long time coming.<br />

We did want to relocate because<br />

we have so many people who use<br />

our facility. But the process for<br />

the rebuild has been pretty good,<br />

because we’ve had this working<br />

group representing the community<br />

right from the start.”<br />

She said the community<br />

had “plenty of input” into the<br />

rebuild.<br />

“We’ve had our say about what<br />

facilities we need to be put in<br />

there. We feel it’s looking really<br />

good. We’ll have a big hall and a<br />

few other meeting rooms. It looks<br />

like it’ll be nicely lit with natural<br />

light, too, as there are lots of<br />

windows. It’ll be a great space for<br />

locals to just come and hang out.”<br />

She said while the working<br />

group was grateful to have the use<br />

of the tennis club, it has been a<br />

challenge keeping the centre running.<br />

“We’ve worked hard.<br />

It hasn’t been easy working<br />

from this tennis club. It’s<br />

serving its purpose but it’s not<br />

ideal for what we really need,” she<br />

said.<br />

“A few of our groups have<br />

drifted away from this premises<br />

in the meantime until we get<br />

relocated back . . . just having<br />

a place on the original site is<br />

something we’re looking forward<br />

to.”<br />

•From page 1<br />

“With the area becoming<br />

busier, the board requested<br />

an audit of the roads from<br />

Sawyers Arms Rd, Sisson Drive,<br />

Langdons Rd and Main North<br />

Rd. We have done the same<br />

in other parts of our ward<br />

to varying degrees, as issues<br />

related to congestion or volume<br />

of traffic come to our attention,”<br />

said Ms Jones.<br />

She said the report would<br />

help the board to make<br />

“informed decisions for the<br />

future.”<br />

“We, like other elected<br />

members I am sure, want<br />

to avoid being in a situation<br />

where we are being reactive, so<br />

planning is really important,<br />

and to plan effectively, we need<br />

to make informed decisions,<br />

hence the request for the<br />

report,” she said.<br />

“This is for our community<br />

– residents, businesses, schools<br />

in the area, shoppers, in fact<br />

anyone using the area.”<br />

Northlands Shopping<br />

Centre and Papanui High<br />

School did not respond before<br />

deadline.<br />

Community board member<br />

John Stringer said that while<br />

he was glad the report was<br />

being done, he felt the separate<br />

planned upgrades in Papanui<br />

were “unnecessary.”<br />

“When we are supposedly a<br />

city in recovery, why so<br />

much change to a largely<br />

unaffected area of<br />

Christchurch?”<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High<br />

student Freya Champion has<br />

been given a “golden ticket” on<br />

her journey to a career in politics.<br />

She has been selected by<br />

Christchurch Central MP<br />

Duncan Webb as a Youth MP.<br />

Freya, 17, will attend the<br />

2019 Youth Parliament, which<br />

provides an opportunity for<br />

young people to find out how<br />

Parliament works.<br />

Seventeen-year-old Matthew<br />

Penno will represent the Ilam<br />

electorate alongside National MP<br />

Gerry Brownlee.<br />

Said Mr Brownlee: “I was<br />

incredibly delighted with the<br />

high calibre of applicants from<br />

students across a range of schools<br />

here in the Ilam electorate.”<br />

“Matthew will be a great<br />

representative for the Ilam<br />

electorate, and I look forward<br />

to following his progress<br />

throughout the Youth<br />

Parliament,” Mr Brownlee said.<br />

Dr Webb said he had an opendoor<br />

policy for Freya to help<br />

guide her into politics.<br />

Freya said she was “stoked”<br />

to have been selected as the<br />

Christchurch Central Youth MP.<br />

“I want to go into Parliament<br />

for my career, so this is just an<br />

amazing opportunity for me.<br />

And because it’s with a party that<br />

I align myself with and a really<br />

good MP, I’m just absolutely<br />

stoked,” she said.<br />

She said her passion for politics<br />

started about two years ago. “I<br />

went to my first model UN and I<br />

immediately fell in love.” She said<br />

it was important for young people<br />

to get involved in politics.<br />

“We are the future generations<br />

that will go on to run the country,<br />

and I think it’s so important that<br />

we get a say in the country we’re<br />

going to have to live with.”<br />

Said Dr Webb: “Some of them<br />

will be our future leaders. It’s<br />

really good to give them some<br />

understanding of what that might<br />

mean, and to give them a set of<br />

values to anchor themselves when<br />

they come to it.”<br />

He said it was hard to choose<br />

from the pool of candidates,<br />

but he thought Freya had the<br />

“X-factor”.<br />

“Some people just have that<br />

X-factor and I thought she just<br />

really stood out as someone who<br />

would really get a lot out of the<br />

experience. I asked the people<br />

who were applying just to tell me<br />

a story about where they’ve been<br />

and where this might take them,<br />

and Freya just took that concept<br />

and understood what I was after.”<br />

The 2019 Youth Parliament<br />

course will take place from<br />

March 1 to August 31, with<br />

120 Youth MPs and up to 20<br />

youth press gallery members<br />

THE EDGEWARE Pool site has<br />

community board members<br />

joined the St Albans Pool and<br />

“They filled a large skip with<br />

rubbish and two trailer loads of<br />

green waste for removal with<br />

the aim of clearing the site<br />

to be used for possible future<br />

fundraising events. It is a work in<br />

fundraising to rebuild Edgeware<br />

THREE SPORTS are vying for<br />

the attention of Rangi Ruru Girls’<br />

School student Brittany Wang<br />

The 17-year-old has represented<br />

New Zealand at age-group level<br />

in athletics, trampolining and<br />

hockey. She has<br />

just been selected<br />

to attend the New<br />

Zealand under-18<br />

hockey development<br />

camp from December<br />

15-21 in New<br />

Plymouth.<br />

While hockey may<br />

be her No 1 focus,<br />

Brittany continues<br />

to split her time<br />

between sports.<br />

She won three<br />

medals at the national<br />

trampoline<br />

championships<br />

in Tauranga last<br />

month, in spite of<br />

a limited build-up,<br />

and was selected to go to Russia<br />

for the world championships<br />

with the New Zealand team but<br />

withdrew to focus on hockey.<br />

In 2016, she won a bronze<br />

medal in the triple jump at<br />

the national track and field<br />

championships and continues to<br />

compete for her school when her<br />

schedule allows.<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

Multi-talented Rangi student<br />

picked for NZ hockey camp<br />

Brittany Wang<br />

She juggles training with her<br />

year 12 NCEA commitments.<br />

“It has been a busy year,” she<br />

said. “However, my school and<br />

coaches have been super supportive<br />

and that’s made it all<br />

possible.”<br />

Brittany, who plays midfield/<br />

striker for the Carlton/Redcliffs<br />

premier<br />

women’s team<br />

in the Christchurch<br />

competition, said<br />

she could see a<br />

long-term future<br />

in hockey. “The<br />

pathway is there<br />

and the potential of<br />

the Olympics is also<br />

something I’ll work<br />

towards.”<br />

She said she<br />

would like to<br />

compete in the<br />

open grade at the<br />

Trampoline world<br />

championships in<br />

China next year.<br />

“That would be something I’d<br />

like to do because after that, to<br />

continue, I’d need to train 40<br />

hours a week, and with my hockey,<br />

that’s probably not realistic.”<br />

Brittany said the hockey<br />

development camp will allow<br />

her to see the level she needs to<br />

play at to ensure she progresses<br />

through the age-group ranks.<br />

Violette to throw discus in Aussie<br />

• By Jacob Page<br />

ST MARGARET’S College<br />

student Violette Perry is used<br />

to splitting her talents between<br />

various sports.<br />

The 15-year-old from<br />

Papanui will compete for New<br />

Zealand in Cairns next month<br />

in both the discus and javelin<br />

at the Australian All Schools<br />

Games.<br />

Violette is one of three South<br />

Islanders to be selected in the<br />

team of 18 athletes.<br />

The Canterbury<br />

representative is also a New<br />

Zealand age-group star in<br />

the pool and is currently in<br />

the 2003 water polo team<br />

preparing for the age-group<br />

world championships in 2020.<br />

She broke the under-15<br />

Spring<br />

Canterbury secondary<br />

schools record in the discus in<br />

March and was part of the St<br />

Margaret’s College under-15<br />

freestyle swimming team.<br />

Violette has won the New<br />

Zealand secondary schools<br />

junior discus title and the<br />

South Island secondary schools<br />

javelin and discus titles as well.<br />

She also won the under-15 girls<br />

50m backstroke title at the<br />

Canterbury secondary school<br />

championships.<br />

Violette finished eighth<br />

in the discus at the same<br />

Australian event last year so<br />

she was eager to better that<br />

effort.<br />

To pursue her discus and<br />

javelin, Violette and her family<br />

have spent the last eight years<br />

travelling “most weekends” to<br />

competing in athletics when<br />

she was seven and took-up<br />

water polo a year later.<br />

my power in the pool and I<br />

Collagen<br />

The Body’s Youth Protein<br />

Collagen is the primary protein in the<br />

body. It is a major component of skin,<br />

hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments,<br />

joint cartilage, bones, gums, teeth, eyes,<br />

and blood vessels.<br />

In fact collagen is the primary structural<br />

component for all tissue in the body,<br />

providing the strength and resilience<br />

associated with youth, beauty and<br />

wellness. The body’s natural collagen<br />

production decreases with age resulting<br />

in many signs of aging, such as flaccid<br />

skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon<br />

injuries and aching joints. Collagen<br />

supplementation is one of the most<br />

fundamental things a person can do to<br />

prevent premature aging and promote<br />

youthful vitality.<br />

NEOCELL are the industry leaders in<br />

research on collagen supplementation.<br />

Through advanced research they have<br />

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and<br />

effectively reduce its molecular weight this<br />

improving the absorption of collagen into<br />

the blood stream by over 90%.<br />

A clinical study on NEOCELL<br />

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to<br />

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,<br />

with 92% of test subjects experiencing<br />

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking<br />

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing<br />

visible improvements within two weeks.<br />

Collagen supplementation provides<br />

the nutrients necessary to support the<br />

body’s collagen supply. It can help reduce<br />

fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin<br />

elasticity, support building of strong bones<br />

The tree of LIFE<br />

New research on Gingko<br />

Biloba excites researchers!<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 />

extract manufactured via a patented<br />

multi-step extraction process. Each small<br />

tablet contains a highly concentrated<br />

NOR’WEST NEWS<br />

Nuturing the young for 167 years<br />

The late US journalist<br />

Herb Caen wrote: “A city<br />

is not gauged by its length<br />

and width but by the<br />

broadness of its vision and<br />

the height of its dreams.”<br />

Caen might have been<br />

writing of Christchurch,<br />

as our visions for the new<br />

city pay homage to the<br />

dreams of the founders<br />

while unleashing our own<br />

dreams for a lofty future.<br />

At the heart of the<br />

city since those earliest<br />

aspirational days when the<br />

founders laid out the first<br />

roads and planted the first<br />

trees, St Michael’s has had<br />

at its heart the vision and<br />

dreams of our city and its<br />

children.<br />

Indeed, for 167 years,<br />

St Michael’s has been<br />

educating and nurturing<br />

the visionaries and<br />

dreamers who continue to<br />

shape our city and step<br />

out into the world beyond.<br />

For our young pupils have<br />

limitless potential to lead<br />

exciting and generous<br />

lives, and we have the<br />

responsibility to educate and inspire<br />

them, to encourage every child to<br />

flourish, in mind, body and spirit.<br />

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls<br />

and boys in Years 1-8. Our classes are<br />

small, fewer than 20 pupils, and our<br />

specialist teachers ensure each child is<br />

an individual, well known by staff and<br />

fellow pupils alike. For at the heart of<br />

St Michael’s are the essential values<br />

of Christian faith and good citizenship:<br />

respect, integrity, community, faith,<br />

hope and love.<br />

An independent school education<br />

at the primary level is a great gift<br />

and so traditional foundations in<br />

Counting the beat, an exploration of rhythm. Year 1<br />

and 2 Music.<br />

English and Maths are assured. This<br />

academic rigour then underpins our<br />

wider curriculums in Science, History,<br />

Geography and Spanish. IT literacy is<br />

taught, not assumed, and computer<br />

use is measured. We like teaching and<br />

talking to our pupils!<br />

A prep education offers balance.<br />

St Michael’s cultural and sports’<br />

programmes further develop each<br />

child’s foundation, as creativity and<br />

problem-solving come in many forms.<br />

Specialist art and music classes are<br />

enjoyed weekly. We have two choirs,<br />

and most pupils play at least one<br />

instrument or study speech and<br />

drama with one of our nine<br />

itinerant staff.<br />

Located in the heart of<br />

the city, on the banks of<br />

the Avon and the new City<br />

Promenade, our extended<br />

campus is spectacular:<br />

today, the Art Gallery;<br />

tomorrow, the Gardens;<br />

tennis later in Hagley Park.<br />

A recent school survey<br />

indicates that many of<br />

our parents now work in<br />

the thriving city centre,<br />

or Lincoln and Riccarton<br />

Road hubs but they live<br />

city-wide. They comment<br />

on the benefit of knowing<br />

their children are in<br />

school nearby and the<br />

convenience of popping<br />

in for an hour to catch<br />

a performance or watch<br />

a race. With the new<br />

central exchange only a<br />

block away, a number of<br />

children arrive by bus from<br />

all corners of the city.<br />

Is your child one of 15<br />

or 50? Is their classroom a<br />

calm, productive learning<br />

space or is the noise and<br />

movement unceasing? How<br />

much of the teacher’s attention does<br />

your child actually receive? There is<br />

an alternative.<br />

You and your child are warmly<br />

invited to discover for yourselves<br />

our purposeful, wholehearted and<br />

inclusive prep school. Our Open Day<br />

is Tuesday, <strong>November</strong> 14, or contact<br />

Summerset<br />

at Avonhead<br />

Summerset at Avonhead is coming!<br />

We have purchased nine and a half hectares of land in the lovely suburb<br />

of Avonhead for our newest retirement village. Located on Hawthornden<br />

Road, the village location is close to shops, along with both Avonhead<br />

and Burnside Parks and transport links. With villages already located in<br />

Wigram and Casebrook, our village in Avonhead will be another great<br />

option for future residents.<br />

We are working towards a village which will provide around 240 homes<br />

including villas, cottages, apartments and serviced apartments. A village<br />

centre will offer fantastic recreational facilities, and a care centre will offer<br />

rest home and hospital-level care. Plus an award-winning Memory Care<br />

Centre will provide safe, apartment style living for people with dementia.<br />

Register your interest in our village by ordering an information pack today,<br />

and you will be the first to receive information and updates.<br />
