roading

report

expected

by Xmas

• By Ashleigh Monk

A REPORT looking at the state

of traffic on some Papanui roads

is in the works.

The report was requested

almost a year ago by the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board and will include reviews

of Sawyers Arms Rd, Langdons

Rd, Main North Rd and Sisson

Drive.

It comes after a

proposal to install

bus and cycle

lanes down parts

of Main North Rd

was approved.

A city council

spokeswoman said Ali Jones

the report was

expected to be received before

Christmas. Community board

chairwoman Ali Jones said the

report had taken “a while” to

put together but it would give

the board a chance to look at

how the area could develop.

“With the cycleway going in,

we wanted to be sure we had a

good run of pattern of use in a

completed environment, so [the

report] has taken a little while,

but we understand why.”

A SNAPSHOT of our political future on

pages 1 and 7 today?

It could well be.

We reveal our local Youth MPs, selected

by Duncan Webb and Gerry Brownlee

to represent their electorates at the Youth

Parliament next year.

Christchurch Girls’ High School student Freya Champion has

been given a “golden ticket” on her journey to a career in politics,

Webb says. The 17-year-old says she is “stoked.”

“I want to go into Parliament for my career, so this is just an

amazing opportunity for me,” she says.

Christchurch Boys’ High School’s Matthew Penno will

represent Ilam. MP Gerry Brownlee says Matthew will be a great

representative for the electorate. And he’s learning from a wily,

tough and experienced campaigner. You can’t do better than that.

Harewood Rd too big – study

Likely cause

of speeding

and crashes

• By Julia Evans

HAREWOOD RD is too big for

the number of vehicles using

it, a new city council study has

revealed.

About 70 to 90 per cent of the

road is not being used, meaning

motorists are more likely to

speed.

“Approximately 70 to 90 per

cent of available capacity is

not being used, which allows

vehicles to travel at greater

speeds. Therefore it is highly

likely that this finding is linked

to observed speeding issues,”

the city council’s Harewood Rd

Corridor Study said.

“There is double the amount

of vehicle lane capacity provided

than what is required. With

more lanes there are more

conflict points at intersections,

more complex give way

situations at intersections and

lower levels of service for other

road-users.”

The study said this is an

underlying cause of crashes at

intersections on Harewood Rd.

The road is a minor arterial

road, but was developed as a

major arterial route. However,

traffic data shows an ongoing

trend of decreasing vehicle

demand. “The legacy of being

designed as a major route,

and historically designed to

accommodate high volumes

EMPTY: Up to 90 per cent

of space on Harewood Rd is

unused, according to a new

city council study.

at higher speeds, whilst not

carrying especially high

volumes of traffic in present day,

is resulting in speed and safety

concerns.”

Motorists are instead using

Sawyers Arms Rd, connecting

Johns Rd and QE II Drive. It

is expected that the traffic will

continue to drop.

Until 2010, the speed limit on

Harewood Rd was 70km/h but

was dropped to 50km/h. The

report said because the road’s

design was not changed, there is

a high-degree of speeding.

“The over-provision of design

geometry is likely a major factor

behind current issues with

vehicle speeds and safety.”

The study said the road’s

design needs to be changed

to have fewer conflict points,

improved safety and service, as

well as slower speeds.

There is a plan to develop

a cycleway on Harewood Rd,

which would reduce the number

of cyclist-related crashes.

St Albans community

centre plans revealed

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE ST Albans Community

Centre is one step closer to being

rebuilt now the final designs have

been approved.

Plans for the $3.1 million project

were approved by the Papanui-

Innes Community Board, and

construction will start in the first

half of next year.

The 399 sq m centre will have

a hall with a stage,

three meeting

rooms, an office, a

kitchen, a courtyard

area and ample

parking

The original centre

Lynne

O’Keefe

was demolished after

being damaged in

the earthquakes, so

the community had to use a temporary

building for several years

which was donated to the Shirley

Community Trust in January.

St Albans working group member

Lynne O’Keefe said the new

centre would be warmly welcomed

as its members have been operating

out of the St Albans Tennis

Club for the past nine months.

“We’ve been operating out of

the tennis club so that we can

keep all these community projects

going, and have a place for all our

groups,” she said.

“It has been a long time coming.

We did want to relocate because

we have so many people who use

our facility. But the process for

the rebuild has been pretty good,

because we’ve had this working

group representing the community

right from the start.”

She said the community

had “plenty of input” into the

rebuild.

“We’ve had our say about what

facilities we need to be put in

there. We feel it’s looking really

good. We’ll have a big hall and a

few other meeting rooms. It looks

like it’ll be nicely lit with natural

light, too, as there are lots of

windows. It’ll be a great space for

locals to just come and hang out.”

She said while the working

group was grateful to have the use

of the tennis club, it has been a

challenge keeping the centre running.

“We’ve worked hard.

It hasn’t been easy working

from this tennis club. It’s

serving its purpose but it’s not

ideal for what we really need,” she

said.

“A few of our groups have

drifted away from this premises

in the meantime until we get

relocated back . . . just having

a place on the original site is

something we’re looking forward

to.”

•From page 1

“With the area becoming

busier, the board requested

an audit of the roads from

Sawyers Arms Rd, Sisson Drive,

Langdons Rd and Main North

Rd. We have done the same

in other parts of our ward

to varying degrees, as issues

related to congestion or volume

of traffic come to our attention,”

said Ms Jones.

She said the report would

help the board to make

“informed decisions for the

future.”

“We, like other elected

members I am sure, want

to avoid being in a situation

where we are being reactive, so

planning is really important,

and to plan effectively, we need

to make informed decisions,

hence the request for the

report,” she said.

“This is for our community

– residents, businesses, schools

in the area, shoppers, in fact

anyone using the area.”

Northlands Shopping

Centre and Papanui High

School did not respond before

deadline.

Community board member

John Stringer said that while

he was glad the report was

being done, he felt the separate

planned upgrades in Papanui

were “unnecessary.”

“When we are supposedly a

city in recovery, why so

much change to a largely

unaffected area of

Christchurch?”

CHRISTCHURCH Girls’ High

student Freya Champion has

been given a “golden ticket” on

her journey to a career in politics.

She has been selected by

Christchurch Central MP

Duncan Webb as a Youth MP.

Freya, 17, will attend the

2019 Youth Parliament, which

provides an opportunity for

young people to find out how

Parliament works.

Seventeen-year-old Matthew

Penno will represent the Ilam

electorate alongside National MP

Gerry Brownlee.

Said Mr Brownlee: “I was

incredibly delighted with the

high calibre of applicants from

students across a range of schools

here in the Ilam electorate.”

“Matthew will be a great

representative for the Ilam

electorate, and I look forward

to following his progress

throughout the Youth

Parliament,” Mr Brownlee said.

Dr Webb said he had an opendoor

policy for Freya to help

guide her into politics.

Freya said she was “stoked”

to have been selected as the

Christchurch Central Youth MP.

“I want to go into Parliament

for my career, so this is just an

amazing opportunity for me.

And because it’s with a party that

I align myself with and a really

good MP, I’m just absolutely

stoked,” she said.

She said her passion for politics

started about two years ago. “I

went to my first model UN and I

immediately fell in love.” She said

it was important for young people

to get involved in politics.

“We are the future generations

that will go on to run the country,

and I think it’s so important that

we get a say in the country we’re

going to have to live with.”

Said Dr Webb: “Some of them

will be our future leaders. It’s

really good to give them some

understanding of what that might

mean, and to give them a set of

values to anchor themselves when

they come to it.”

He said it was hard to choose

from the pool of candidates,

but he thought Freya had the

“X-factor”.

“Some people just have that

X-factor and I thought she just

really stood out as someone who

would really get a lot out of the

experience. I asked the people

who were applying just to tell me

a story about where they’ve been

and where this might take them,

and Freya just took that concept

and understood what I was after.”

The 2019 Youth Parliament

course will take place from

March 1 to August 31, with

120 Youth MPs and up to 20

youth press gallery members

then attending a two-day Youth

Parliament in Wellington on July

16-17.

THREE SPORTS are vying for

the attention of Rangi Ruru Girls’

School student Brittany Wang

The 17-year-old has represented

New Zealand at age-group level

in athletics, trampolining and

hockey. She has

just been selected

to attend the New

Zealand under-18

hockey development

camp from December

15-21 in New

Plymouth.

While hockey may

be her No 1 focus,

Brittany continues

to split her time

between sports.

She won three

medals at the national

trampoline

championships

in Tauranga last

month, in spite of

a limited build-up,

and was selected to go to Russia

for the world championships

with the New Zealand team but

withdrew to focus on hockey.

In 2016, she won a bronze

medal in the triple jump at

the national track and field

championships and continues to

compete for her school when her

schedule allows.

SCHOOLS

Multi-talented Rangi student

picked for NZ hockey camp

Brittany Wang

She juggles training with her

year 12 NCEA commitments.

“It has been a busy year,” she

said. “However, my school and

coaches have been super supportive

and that’s made it all

possible.”

Brittany, who plays midfield/

striker for the Carlton/Redcliffs

premier

women’s team

in the Christchurch

competition, said

she could see a

long-term future

in hockey. “The

pathway is there

and the potential of

the Olympics is also

something I’ll work

towards.”

She said she

would like to

compete in the

open grade at the

Trampoline world

championships in

China next year.

“That would be something I’d

like to do because after that, to

continue, I’d need to train 40

hours a week, and with my hockey,

that’s probably not realistic.”

Brittany said the hockey

development camp will allow

her to see the level she needs to

play at to ensure she progresses

through the age-group ranks.

Violette to throw discus in Aussie

• By Jacob Page

ST MARGARET’S College

student Violette Perry is used

to splitting her talents between

various sports.

The 15-year-old from

Papanui will compete for New

Zealand in Cairns next month

in both the discus and javelin

at the Australian All Schools

Games.

Violette is one of three South

Islanders to be selected in the

team of 18 athletes.

The Canterbury

representative is also a New

Zealand age-group star in

the pool and is currently in

the 2003 water polo team

preparing for the age-group

world championships in 2020.

She broke the under-15

Spring

Canterbury secondary

schools record in the discus in

March and was part of the St

Margaret’s College under-15

freestyle swimming team.

Violette has won the New

Zealand secondary schools

junior discus title and the

South Island secondary schools

javelin and discus titles as well.

She also won the under-15 girls

50m backstroke title at the

Canterbury secondary school

championships.

Violette finished eighth

in the discus at the same

Australian event last year so

she was eager to better that

effort.

To pursue her discus and

javelin, Violette and her family

have spent the last eight years

travelling “most weekends” to

Collagen

The Body’s Youth Protein

Collagen is the primary protein in the

body. It is a major component of skin,

hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments,

joint cartilage, bones, gums, teeth, eyes,

and blood vessels.

In fact collagen is the primary structural

component for all tissue in the body,

providing the strength and resilience

associated with youth, beauty and

wellness. The body’s natural collagen

production decreases with age resulting

in many signs of aging, such as flaccid

skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon

injuries and aching joints. Collagen

supplementation is one of the most

fundamental things a person can do to

prevent premature aging and promote

youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders in

research on collagen supplementation.

Through advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and

effectively reduce its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of collagen into

the blood stream by over 90%.

A clinical study on NEOCELL

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,

with 92% of test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within two weeks.

Collagen supplementation provides

the nutrients necessary to support the

body’s collagen supply. It can help reduce

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

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

Nuturing the young for 167 years

The late US journalist

Herb Caen wrote: “A city

is not gauged by its length

and width but by the

broadness of its vision and

the height of its dreams.”

Caen might have been

writing of Christchurch,

as our visions for the new

city pay homage to the

dreams of the founders

while unleashing our own

dreams for a lofty future.

At the heart of the

city since those earliest

aspirational days when the

founders laid out the first

roads and planted the first

trees, St Michael’s has had

at its heart the vision and

dreams of our city and its

children.

Indeed, for 167 years,

St Michael’s has been

educating and nurturing

the visionaries and

dreamers who continue to

shape our city and step

out into the world beyond.

For our young pupils have

limitless potential to lead

exciting and generous

lives, and we have the

responsibility to educate and inspire

them, to encourage every child to

flourish, in mind, body and spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls

and boys in Years 1-8. Our classes are

small, fewer than 20 pupils, and our

specialist teachers ensure each child is

an individual, well known by staff and

fellow pupils alike. For at the heart of

St Michael’s are the essential values

of Christian faith and good citizenship:

respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education

at the primary level is a great gift

and so traditional foundations in

Counting the beat, an exploration of rhythm. Year 1

and 2 Music.

English and Maths are assured. This

academic rigour then underpins our

wider curriculums in Science, History,

Geography and Spanish. IT literacy is

taught, not assumed, and computer

use is measured. We like teaching and

talking to our pupils!

A prep education offers balance.

St Michael’s cultural and sports’

programmes further develop each

child’s foundation, as creativity and

problem-solving come in many forms.

Specialist art and music classes are

enjoyed weekly. We have two choirs,

and most pupils play at least one

instrument or study speech and

drama with one of our nine

itinerant staff.

Located in the heart of

the city, on the banks of

the Avon and the new City

Promenade, our extended

campus is spectacular:

today, the Art Gallery;

tomorrow, the Gardens;

tennis later in Hagley Park.

A recent school survey

indicates that many of

our parents now work in

the thriving city centre,

or Lincoln and Riccarton

Road hubs but they live

city-wide. They comment

on the benefit of knowing

their children are in

school nearby and the

convenience of popping

in for an hour to catch

a performance or watch

a race. With the new

central exchange only a

block away, a number of

children arrive by bus from

all corners of the city.

Is your child one of 15

or 50? Is their classroom a

calm, productive learning

space or is the noise and

movement unceasing? How

much of the teacher’s attention does

your child actually receive? There is

an alternative.

You and your child are warmly

invited to discover for yourselves

our purposeful, wholehearted and

inclusive prep school. Our Open Day

is Tuesday, November 14, or contact

our registrar, Bec Hitchcock, for a

personal tour: 03 379 9790.

On the Alps2Ocean cycle trail as part of the

Year 7 and 8 Mt Cook Camp.

On the go! School Athletic Sports at Christ’s

College.

Cracking good fun! The school’s annual

Holiday Programme.

Summerset

at Avonhead

Summerset at Avonhead is coming!

We have purchased nine and a half hectares of land in the lovely suburb

of Avonhead for our newest retirement village. Located on Hawthornden

Road, the village location is close to shops, along with both Avonhead

and Burnside Parks and transport links. With villages already located in

Wigram and Casebrook, our village in Avonhead will be another great

option for future residents.

We are working towards a village which will provide around 240 homes

including villas, cottages, apartments and serviced apartments. A village

centre will offer fantastic recreational facilities, and a care centre will offer

rest home and hospital-level care. Plus an award-winning Memory Care

Centre will provide safe, apartment style living for people with dementia.

Register your interest in our village by ordering an information pack today,
