GOOD CAUSE: Cashmere High School teachers raised money for men’s health issues during Movember with themed dress up<br />

Playing dress up for Movember<br />

Movember dress-up fixture<br />

started in 2014, when a group of<br />

moustache-laden men decided<br />

to dress up as mid-80s maths<br />

teachers.<br />

Since then, the group decided<br />

that every day of the final week<br />

of November they would dress<br />

up, with each theme relating to<br />

moustaches.<br />

“We’ve honoured themes such<br />

as Miami Vice, heavy metal,<br />

Victorian times, and Woodstock,<br />

as well as individuals like Tom<br />

Selleck, Billy T James and Ned<br />

Flanders over the years,” said<br />

deputy principal Blair Johnson.<br />

force<br />

neighbour<br />

to move out<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

A SPREYDON woman who had<br />

five two-storey townhouses built<br />

less than 1m away from her house<br />

is packing up and moving.<br />

Bolton Ave homeowner Kim<br />

Mehlhopt said she has sold her<br />

property and will be moving out<br />

in the next two weeks.<br />

“Just fed up with noise and<br />

parking issues.<br />

All that came<br />

with it, all we<br />

knew would come<br />

with it,” she said.<br />

Last year, it<br />

was revealed<br />

JSJ Investments<br />

was building<br />

townhouses<br />

next door to Ms<br />

Kim<br />

Mehlhopt<br />

Mehlhopt’s home of 15 years – the<br />

garage less than 1m away.<br />

But situations like Ms<br />

Mehlhopt’s may be avoided in the<br />

future.<br />

City council staff are<br />

investigating how tightlypacked<br />

housing is effecting the<br />

community and whether it needs<br />

to ask Greater Christchurch<br />

Woods to change the District<br />

Plan. “The work into high density<br />

housing will be relevant,” city<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

DRY JULY, Movember . . . all of those<br />

themed sort of events can be fairly tedious<br />

and repetitive in my humble view.<br />

I will point out though, that doesn’t diminish<br />

the great causes these events raise<br />

money for.<br />

But I was amused and impressed by the photo reporter<br />

Sophie Cornish found regarding Cashmere High’s Movember<br />

fundraising campaign. It deservedly gets front page attention<br />

today.<br />

More than $4000 was raised by staff for men’s health and this<br />

year’s theme, Game of Mos, was in tune with other themes over<br />

the years like Miami Vice and Tom Selleck from Magnum P.I.<br />

The line of the week goes to deputy principal Blair Johnson,<br />

who was of course the ‘chief mo-tivator’.<br />

City chorus puts<br />

on festive show<br />

• By Ashleigh Monk<br />

THE Christchurch City Chorus<br />

is putting on a festive show to<br />

get everyone into the Christmas<br />

spirit.<br />

On <strong>December</strong> 15 the choir will<br />

take the stage to perform The<br />

Magic of Christmas.<br />

Musical director Virginia<br />

Humphrey-Taylor said the show<br />

would include Christmas carols,<br />

skits, poems and dancing.<br />

“We want to share the joy and<br />

music of Christmas with people,”<br />

she said.<br />

“We want everyone to come<br />

and sing carols with us. It’s<br />

something for the whole family<br />

to get everyone excited for<br />

Christmas.”<br />

She said about 80 members of<br />

the choir would be performing.<br />

“We’ve got quartets singing,<br />

we’ve got small groups singing,<br />

we’ve got about 20 children who<br />

will be performing,” she said.<br />

“We’ll sing a lot of the classic<br />

Christmas carols, but there will<br />

also be a few songs that people<br />

won’t know; songs from around<br />

the world about Christmas.”<br />

The show would give members<br />

a chance to get some practice<br />

in before the Christchurch City<br />

Chorus heads to New Orleans<br />

for a performance in September.<br />

“We’re doing as many shows<br />

as we can so we are prepared,”<br />

she said.<br />

She said she hoped to showcase<br />

the group and encourage<br />

new members to join.<br />

“We’re looking for new<br />

members all the time. There’s<br />

always a turn over of membership<br />

because people move away<br />

or their lives change, so this is a<br />

chance for people who might be<br />

interested in joining to see what<br />

we do.”<br />

The Magic of Christmas will<br />

be performed on <strong>December</strong> 15,<br />

with a matinee at 2pm and an<br />

evening show at 7pm.<br />

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20<br />

for seniors and $10 for children,<br />

$1.2m plan for old Redcliffs school site<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

PLANS FOR a new $1.2 million<br />

park on the old Redcliffs School<br />

site have been released.<br />

The city council has proposed<br />

converting the site into a park<br />

to compensate for the loss<br />

of Redcliffs Park, which will<br />

accommodate the new school.<br />

The draft landscape plan is<br />

open for public consultation<br />

until <strong>December</strong> 17. Once<br />

consultation has finished, the<br />

Linwood-Central-Heathcote<br />

Community Board will make a<br />

recommendation on the park’s<br />

future to the city council.<br />

It would be called Te Papa<br />

Kura, a name gifted by local iwi.<br />

Papa means park and kura can<br />

mean both school and red.<br />

One junior and one<br />

intermediate football field,<br />

a toilet, drinking fountain,<br />

additional furniture and new<br />

signage will all be added to the<br />

park.<br />

The existing playground,<br />

furniture, car park and a<br />

community building will be kept<br />

on the site.<br />

The site is also being<br />

considered as a possible location<br />

for a skate park as part of the<br />

Bays Area Skate Project.<br />

City council acting head of<br />

DEVELOPMENT: The city council has proposed a $1.2 million plan to convert the old Redcliffs<br />

School site into a park.<br />

parks Kate Russell was confident<br />

the new park would be just as<br />

good as the old one, in spite<br />

of the new site being 643 sq m<br />

smaller.<br />

“The new park will offer<br />

the same sport and recreation<br />

opportunities as the former park<br />

– sports fields, a playground,<br />

a community building, toilets<br />

and car parking. We will also be<br />

adding a perimeter path.”<br />

Ms Russell said the city council<br />

was aiming to start and finish<br />

construction next year, with the<br />

football fields predicted to be<br />

ready before winter.<br />

However, Friends of Redcliffs<br />

Park spokesman Chris Doudney<br />

said the relocation of the park<br />

and the school was “totally<br />

pointless”.<br />

“The old school site is on the<br />

same side of the road to about<br />

80 per cent of its pupils so kids<br />

don’t have to cross the main road.<br />

It’s also higher than the new site<br />

which is a flood plain.”<br />

Mr Doudney also has issues<br />

with the plans for the new park.<br />

“I’m glad they are keeping a<br />

couple of the trees but I think<br />

they should keep a few more. I<br />

thought that they should move<br />

one of the playing fields a bit<br />

further away from the other one<br />

so there is room to keep another<br />

tree or two and to get a path<br />

between the two playing fields.”<br />

Mr Doudney said the best<br />

thing the city council could do<br />

was to move the school back to its<br />

old site and leave Redcliffs Park<br />

where it was.<br />

Theatre for babies<br />

BABIES AND theatre are not<br />

usually two things that are put<br />

together.<br />

In fact, any parent who has<br />

taken a baby to a performance<br />

knows it can be challenging at<br />

best and a disaster at worst.<br />

Turning that whole idea on<br />

its head is Burwood’s Melanie<br />

Luckman, Sumner’s Hannah<br />

Wheeler and Strowan’s Amy<br />

Straker.<br />

The trio will perform their<br />

show Up And Away, designed<br />

especially for pre-walking<br />

babies, in New Brighton and<br />

Phillipstown.<br />

The show will be staged<br />

through the newly-launched<br />

Cubbin Theatre Company.<br />

The company aims to develop<br />

genuine theatre for children<br />

under the age of five.<br />

Each performance will last<br />

about 30-40min with an opportunity<br />

for families to stay and<br />

play at the end.<br />

The show will also take place<br />

in a carefully crafted tent.<br />

“Our vision is of a world where<br />

high-quality art is as integral to<br />

early childhood as the<br />

playground, and as accessible,”<br />

Luckman said.<br />

She said it has been great<br />

working with the city council’s<br />

enliven places project fund for<br />

MAGICAL: Hannah Wheeler and Amy Straker performing their<br />

show Up and Away, which is designed especially for<br />

pre-walking babies. ​<br />

this tour.<br />

Luckman said with the funding’s<br />

help it can offer the show<br />

for $5 for a baby and adult<br />

together.<br />

The show is informed by<br />

neuroscientific research and has<br />

been developed in consultation<br />

with a speech and a language<br />

therapist through a series of<br />

rehearsal workshops with babies.<br />

Wheeler was working at LATT<br />

Children’s Theatre and living in<br />

South Korea when she saw her<br />

first baby theatre performance.<br />

“It was five years ago and what<br />

I experienced has stuck with me<br />

ever since. I am really excited<br />

about bringing high quality,<br />

respectful and intelligent theatre<br />

to children in Christchurch,” she<br />

said.<br />

•Up and Away is on<br />

Thursday and Friday at<br />

the Phillipstown Hub, 39<br />

Townhouses force neighbour out<br />

•From page 1<br />

Said Mr Higgins: “The work<br />

will involve reviewing high<br />

density developments and<br />

reporting back to the Regulatory<br />

Performance Committee on the<br />

initial findings and next steps,”<br />

Ms Mehlhopt said the<br />

development devalued her home,<br />

cost her privacy, and the street’s<br />

family-orientated<br />

appeal. Construction of the<br />

townhouses was finished earlier<br />

this year.<br />

“The council never did<br />

anything about it, so I’m<br />

moving,” she said.<br />

Under the current District<br />

Plan, zoning for the development<br />

was compliant.<br />

COMPLETE: Kim Mehlhopt is moving after<br />

townhouses were built less than 1m away from<br />

her Spreydon home.<br />

Mr Higgins said consents were<br />

issued in accordance with the<br />

Resource Management Act and<br />

Building Act.<br />

“Having said that, following<br />

the concerns raised by Ms<br />

Mehlhopt, the council did talk<br />

to and meet with both parties<br />

on several occasions to explore<br />

if there were any mitigation<br />

measures/improvements that<br />

could be undertaken that would<br />

improve the situation for Ms<br />

Mehlhopt.”<br />

One of the ideas was to re-site<br />

the house on her property as part<br />

of her EQC repairs.<br />

However, Mr Higgins said<br />

no mitigation or improvements<br />

were agreed upon.<br />

Women only<br />

time slots at<br />

swimming pools<br />

• By Julia Evans<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

FOR TWO hours on Sunday<br />

it was only women who were<br />

allowed to swim in the teaching<br />

pool at Pioneer.<br />

City council head of recreation,<br />

sports and events Nigel Cox said<br />

20 females and a pre-school age<br />

boy attended the first session over<br />

the weekend.<br />

“Ranging in age from preschool<br />

to seniors,” he said.<br />

Mr Cox said the women-only<br />

sessions will be held at Aquagym<br />

and Wharenui pools, as well as<br />

Pioneer Recreation and Sports<br />

Centre, in conjunction with<br />

Christchurch Resettlement Services.<br />

“The pool is booked for this<br />

session to run every Sunday from<br />

1.30–3.30pm,” he said.<br />

The idea was suggested by the<br />

city council’s multicultural subcommittee<br />

in June, which asked<br />

staff to look into the potential of<br />

offering women-only swimming<br />

sessions at particular times.<br />

The session sets out to cater to<br />

women of other cultures, particularly<br />

Muslim women who generally<br />

aren’t able to swim in public.<br />

But also other women who do<br />

not feel comfortable swimming<br />

with men.<br />

Principal goes for swim at school fair<br />

• By Louis Day<br />

REDCLIFFS SCHOOL still<br />

managed to raise more than<br />

$30,000 at its fair in the face of<br />

wet and windy weather.<br />

School principal Rose<br />

McInerney, who went for a swim<br />

in the dunk tank, said there was<br />

still more money to come.<br />

“We had two amazing cubby<br />

houses at the fair and because we<br />

couldn’t paint them at the fair<br />

because of the weather, they still<br />

have to be finished and auctioned<br />

off on Trade Me, so they will<br />

potentially bring in another<br />

$5000,” said Mrs McInerney.<br />

More than 2000 people<br />

attended the fair last Sunday and<br />

were treated to a wide variety of<br />

sideshows and activities, such<br />

as mini golf, dunk the teacher,<br />

mini jeep trucks and a horizontal<br />

bungy.<br />

Pupils opened the fair by<br />

performing kapa haka and<br />

singing choir songs.<br />

“Our (pupils) were incredible,<br />

I think they got about 4min of<br />

singing without rain and sung<br />

their little hearts out for another<br />

20min in the rain.”<br />

Mrs McInerney said the money<br />

raised would go a long way in<br />

improving the experience of<br />

pupils at the school.<br />

“Some of it will go towards<br />

additional teaching resources to<br />

provide extra opportunity for<br />

our students and some of it is<br />

definitely going to go towards the<br />

outdoor areas and seating for our<br />

new school.”<br />

Mrs McInerney said the fair<br />

could have quite easily been<br />

a failure if it were not for the<br />

resilience of the community.<br />

“For our school community<br />

and the wider community to get<br />

behind the school fair and come<br />

along out in the wind and rain,<br />

I just think it speaks volumes<br />

about who they are.”<br />

New equipment for<br />

sensory playground<br />

OBSOLETE equipment from<br />

throughout the city is getting a<br />

new lease of life in the children’s<br />

playground at Rawhiti Doman.<br />

The sensory playground is<br />

designed to give all children,<br />

especially those with special<br />

needs, the opportunity to<br />

explore senses.<br />

The playground was the<br />

brainchild of SmileDial New<br />

Zealand founder Kelly Dugan.<br />

Mr Dugan, who has a sevenyear-old<br />

daughter with cerebral<br />

palsy, came up with the idea.<br />

Some of the large plastic<br />

traffic sheep that used to feature<br />

on inner city pavements have<br />

been put out to pasture in the<br />

sensory garden along with one<br />

of the New Brighton tiny huts.<br />

An avid supporter of the<br />

playground is Citycare property<br />

supervisor Doug Peek, who<br />

is always on the lookout for<br />

items that can be recycled at the<br />

playground rather than sent to<br />

landfill.<br />

When it was time to decide<br />

if the hut should stay or be<br />

dismantled, Mr Peek suggested<br />

it be added to the garden.<br />

CREATIVE: Citycare property supervisor Doug Peek is always<br />

on the look-out for items that can be recycled for the sensory<br />

garden at Rawhiti Domain.<br />

“I always keep SmileDial and<br />

the kids in the back of my mind<br />

when out on the job . . . we are<br />

essentially turning trash into<br />

treasure,” Mr Peek said.<br />

SmileDial receives no<br />

cool and colourful<br />

Government funding, only<br />

community support.<br />

“Without the backing of<br />

organisations like Citycare<br />

we simply wouldn’t exist,” Mr<br />

Dugan said.<br />

Halswell teen’s path<br />

ambulance career<br />

ST JOHN’S National Cadet of<br />

the Year is 17-year-old Dominic<br />

Anisy, who hopes to ultimately<br />

pursue a career with the<br />

ambulance service.<br />

Dominic (right) has been<br />

a youth member since 2006,<br />

starting as a penguin at the<br />

Opawa division before moving to<br />

Halswell, where he is currently a<br />

cadet leader.<br />

He graduated from St Thomas<br />

of Canterbury College this year.<br />

Dominic was also the South<br />

Island Region Cadet of the Year<br />

and competed for the national<br />

title alongside Virginia Konelio<br />

and Jeremy Johnston.<br />

Dominic formally took over the<br />

role as National Cadet of the Year<br />

from Cascade Price at an investiture<br />

ceremony earlier this month<br />

at the Christchurch Transitional<br />

Cathedral.<br />

Outside St John, Dominic is a<br />

talented graphic designer having<br />

won a national graphic design<br />

competition to design the logo of<br />

the new St John intranet.<br />

Dominic also hopes to pursue<br />

a career with St John’s frontline<br />

ambulance service or the police<br />

force in future.<br />

“I am really looking forward to<br />

my term as National Cadet of the<br />

Year. I am so passionate about St<br />

St John Community health<br />

services director Sarah Manley<br />

said Dominic will “play a big<br />

part in leading the St John youth<br />

programme’s 15-year strategy,<br />

launched last year in St John<br />

youth’s 90th year.”<br />

St John youth has about 7500<br />

members, with 193 divisions<br />

Dominic will lead the St John<br />

‘Moody’ wildlife photo wins big<br />

AN “OBSESSED with nature”<br />

Spreydon nine-year-old has won<br />

the Canterbury Museum youth<br />

photography competition.<br />

Max Eadie-Lilley won the<br />

under-10 category with his<br />

moody monochrome shot of a<br />

school of fish in a Lake Taupo<br />

dam.<br />

He took the photo, which he<br />

titled Stuck, during a weekend<br />

away with his family.<br />

Dylan Fisher, 10, was runnerup<br />

for his portrait of a Kea,<br />

which judges said captured the<br />

bird’s intelligence and famously<br />

cheeky nature.<br />

The competition titled<br />

Amazing Animals attracted<br />

more than 200 entries from<br />

photographers aged 15 and under<br />

throughout Canterbury.<br />

The judges convened last week<br />

SNAP: Spreydon resident Max<br />

Eadie-Lilley’s photo (top left)<br />

won the under-10 category in<br />

Canterbury Museum’s youth<br />

photography competition.<br />

to choose a winner and runnerup<br />

from the two categories.<br />

Zoe Evans, 15, won the 11 to<br />

15 category for a close-up shot of<br />

a Bellbird inside Auckland Zoo’s<br />

aviary.<br />

“When the Bellbird finally<br />

realised I was there, it looked<br />

straight at me with its beautiful<br />

brown eyes and I took my final<br />

shot. It was truly a rare and<br />

magical moment,” she said.<br />

Anna Babington’s heartbreaking<br />

shot of a injured seal<br />

by a boat propeller was second<br />

place.<br />

Canterbury Museum curator<br />

natural history Cor Vink, who<br />

was one of the competition’s<br />

three judges, said the panel was<br />

blown away by the quality of the<br />

entries.<br />

“We were just amazed by<br />

the talent these young people<br />

had. We recently hosted the<br />

Natural History Museum’s<br />

Wildlife Photographer of the Year<br />

exhibition, and I honestly think<br />

some of these shots would not<br />

have looked out of place on the<br />

walls of that exhibition.”<br />

The winners won Prezzie Card<br />

prizes and their photographs are<br />

on display now in the museum’s<br />

foyer.

Shops bursting with<br />

festive gift ideas<br />

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the<br />

Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.<br />

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as<br />

well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at<br />

our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops<br />

are bursting with festive merchandise.<br />

Every woman likes to receive body pampering<br />

gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced<br />

to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift<br />

shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite<br />

and again there is a wide selection to choose from,<br />

ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known<br />

fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie,<br />

jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor<br />

items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on<br />

the list.<br />

The men are equally well catered for, from the<br />

sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy<br />

brothers and the DIY enthusiast and keen gardener<br />

husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books,<br />

tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a<br />

smile on their face on Christmas morning.<br />

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy<br />

than seeing the excitement of the children opening<br />

their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa<br />

or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly<br />

toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy<br />

canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling<br />

the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from<br />

the smallest family members.<br />

The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas<br />

about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards<br />

offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way<br />

Deck the halls<br />

Christmas isn’t Christmas without a decoration or two around the home.<br />

Whether its outdoor lights with a waving Santa or<br />

just draping tinsel across your mantelpiece, there are<br />

many ways to celebrate the festive season in your home.<br />

Go natural<br />

Driftwood painted white with LED lights wrapped<br />

around, or pine cones with a touch of silver spray<br />

paint, make beautiful natural additions to the home<br />

at this time of year. If you have a tree branch around<br />

the home, why not cut it up into discs and spray paint<br />

white stars and reindeer on the disc. Drill a hole in the<br />

top and thread some gardeners string through the hole<br />

and you have an instant decoration to hang on the tree<br />

or somewhere around the home. Cover polystyrene<br />

balls in ripped linen, hessian and cotton strips. These<br />

can either be hung up or a number placed in a bowl on<br />

the table.<br />

Tinsel town<br />

Many love the glitter and sparkle that tinsel brings<br />

but how about using it in different ways. A threetiered<br />

cake plate with tinsel laid on each plate with<br />

baubles then placed on top, can look really impressive<br />

as a centrepiece for the table. Make your own wreath<br />

by wrapping tinsel around and around a polystyrene<br />

circle. Hang just as it is, or hot glue gun baubles on to<br />

create extra wow.<br />

Table setting<br />

Sometimes the simplest decorations on the table<br />

can look the most stunning. A beautiful napkin rolled<br />

up with a piece of red and white ribbon, or rosemary<br />

wreath looks amazing. Why not place a hessian runner<br />

down the middle of the table and add greenery and<br />

candles in jars on top to create a wonderful centrepiece.<br />

If you have a children’s eating table, why not put a<br />

long piece of brown paper as a table cloth. Draw large<br />

circles where the plates can go and write Christmas<br />

questions beside each plate outline. A little bottle with<br />

a red and white paper straw is great too. Put a jar of<br />

red and green crayons on the table. When the kids are<br />

finished their dinner, they can play noughts and crosses<br />

or hangman or just draw pictures.<br />

If you’re looking for ideas why not check out<br />

Pintrest. Here you will find every style and every<br />

technique to make sure your home looks like a<br />

HEALTH & AWARENESS<br />

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or<br />

could it be mainly my muscles?<br />

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham<br />

sees clients with a range of symptoms but<br />

many of their middle-aged and senior<br />

clients visit complaining of pain in one or<br />

both hips.<br />

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests<br />

that a major part of the pain could be due<br />

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.<br />

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason<br />

for the pain may be the muscles around<br />

the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a<br />

back muscle could also be the cause, as<br />

shown in the image.<br />

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year<br />

old client with severe arthritis who walked<br />

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in<br />

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight<br />

through my right leg due to pain in my hip<br />

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she<br />

was walking with her stick but without the<br />

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was<br />

one of the factors that made her muscles<br />

spasm but the other was that older people<br />

move less and the flexed position the hip<br />

is in when we sit is particularly bad for<br />

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that<br />

although the client was 89 and could have<br />

been “given up on” or told to live with the<br />

pain, she made a difference to her health<br />

Hip muscle that causes hip pain<br />

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)<br />

and wellbeing.<br />

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques<br />

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation<br />

techniques) are used to release the muscles.<br />

The client also gets a home exercise<br />

program designed to mobilize and stretch<br />

the hip, strengthen the important core<br />

muscles and increase general strength and<br />

balance. They teach a movement sequence<br />

that stretches the hip in all directions<br />

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their<br />

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.<br />

In many cases having the muscles<br />

released and being taught how to maintain<br />

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.<br />

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,<br />

some maintenance therapy may be<br />

necessary, but that is often more affordable<br />

and, for older patients, better tolerated than<br />

surgery. In very few treatments the client<br />

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain<br />

will know if it is going to work for them or<br />

not, without financial commitment.<br />

CENTENARIAN: Dorothy Perkins (middle in red) marked her 100th birthday<br />

England.<br />

Dot celebrates<br />

100th birthday<br />

at Edith Cavell<br />

KIDSTUFF<br />

Play, laugh, learn. These are the essential<br />

ingredients for a successful Pre-School<br />

education. These crucial early years are to be<br />

nurtured, shaped and cherished as your child<br />

takes their first steps in education.<br />

Research states that play may be the single<br />

most important things that humans do. “Our<br />

play based learning approach supports your<br />

child as they begin their exciting journey as a<br />

lifelong learner” says Principal Scott Thelning.<br />

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School teaches the<br />

children of tomorrow, today.<br />

At Cathedral Grammar Pre-School your<br />

whole family is welcomed into the wider<br />

embrace of the Grammar community<br />

including whole school fun and functions,<br />

services and support as well as smooth<br />

transition to the Junior School and links to the<br />

SOUTHERN VIEW<br />

Cathedral Grammar<br />

Pre-School located within<br />

the heart of the city<br />

Prep School.<br />

In Cathedral Grammar’s purpose built<br />

Pre-School, taught by qualified teachers, your<br />

child will discover by curiosity, investigation<br />

and exploration. Our low child/teacher ratios,<br />

ensure your child’s quality individual and<br />

group learning.<br />

Every advantage is taken of our central<br />

city location to extend our ‘campus’ from the<br />

Botanic Gardens to the Canterbury Museum,<br />

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o<br />

Waiwhetu to the Christchurch Transitional<br />

Cathedral, from Tūranga (Christchurch<br />

central library) to the emergency services.<br />

Being an inner city Pre-School also gives<br />

you a wonderfully easy opportunity to engage<br />

in your child’s learning if you are working in<br />

the CBD.<br />

Your child will develop essential<br />

foundations in literacy and numeracy. He<br />

or she will enjoy the benefits of specialised<br />

facilities, subjects and staff including Art,<br />

Physical Education, Yoga and Chapel.<br />

When children feel good about themselves<br />

and their abilities, they are able to take flight<br />

and explore, discover, take risks and play,<br />

laugh and learn effectively and successfully.<br />

“Self-esteem is at the core of this development<br />

process” Thelning says.<br />

DOROTHY Perkins celebrated her 100th<br />

birthday on Friday.<br />

She was joined by family and friends<br />

from Dunedin, Invercargill, Tauranga<br />

and as far away as England at Edith Cavell<br />

Lifecare and Village in Sumner.<br />

Miss Perkins received letters<br />

congratulating her from the Queen, Port<br />

Hills MP Ruth Dyson and several people<br />

living on Stewart Island. She was the<br />

district nurse on Stewart Island from 1965-<br />

1972, where she would look after seasick<br />

ferry passengers, newborn babies, the<br />

elderly, and accident victims.<br />

Miss Perkins became famous<br />

throughout the community for driving<br />

what relatives described as a “green army<br />

jeep” to see patients across the island.<br />

Her cousin Robert Overton said Miss<br />

Perkins was often on call 24 hours a day as<br />

she was the only nurse on the island.<br />

“She had to be a bit of everything there.<br />

There wasn’t even a doctor on the island.”<br />

Before she was the district nurse on<br />

Stewart Island, Miss Perkins worked at<br />

St Helen’s Hospital in Sydenham, Dee St<br />

Maternity Hospital in Invercargill and was<br />

also matron at the Lumsden Maternity<br />

Centre.<br />

After seven years of service on<br />

Stewart Island, Miss Perkins retired in<br />

Christchurch but continued to care for<br />

family and friends.<br />

“Dot has been the lady who has moved<br />

where the need has been to look after<br />

people. She looked after both my wife’s<br />

parents and my parents before they passed<br />

away,” Mr Overton said.<br />

Miss Perkins was driving people to<br />

church, getting her own groceries and<br />

looking after herself in her Redcliffs home<br />

ROYAL TREATMENT: Dorothy Perkins<br />

was all smiles after receiving a card<br />

from the Queen.<br />

until Christmas last year, when she moved<br />

to Edith Cavell Lifecare and Village.<br />

Mr Overton said Miss Perkins would<br />

always put the needs of other people before<br />

her own.<br />

“Dot never wanted to be a worry. If she<br />

fell at two in the morning she would wait<br />

till six to call the buzzer. One day she had<br />

a fall in the garden so she shuffled into<br />

a bush and did some weeding while she<br />

waited for help to arrive. She’s not one to<br />

cause a fuss.”<br />

Start<br />

Pre-School<br />

Here, it all begins<br />

Located in the CBD and offering 20<br />

hours ECE. Our Pre-School balances<br />

play with stimulating young minds,<br />

all while fostering values and instilling<br />

good habits. Specialist art, music<br />

and PE teachers take weekly lessons,<br />

nurturing and extending children’s<br />

early talents.<br />

Children eat<br />

what they sow<br />

At Kimihia we are very lucky to have<br />

space for vege gardens. Our tamariki are<br />

involved in all aspects of the growing<br />

of vegetables and fruit. Whilst our<br />

strawberries are usually picked and<br />

eaten fresh, most of the vegetables we<br />

grow are used in the meals our Centre<br />

provides. Over the growing season our<br />

garden produced pumpkins, zucchini,<br />

beetroot, tomatoes, beans, basil,<br />

coriander, silverbeet, peas, broccoli,<br />

cabbage, cauliflower and lettuce. Giant<br />

sunflowers, nasturtiums and calendulas<br />

provided plenty of colour in the garden.<br />

Our children delighted in being able to<br />

harvest the vegetables thay had grown<br />

and take them to our food preparers. We<br />

have also saved seeds from some of last<br />

year’s veges to plant in the new season’s<br />

garden.<br />

The garden offers so many<br />

opportunities for learning; not only the<br />

connection between garden and plate,<br />

but also how to care for living things,<br />

how to work together and how to live<br />

sustainably and care for the earth.<br />

Ultimate beauty oil?<br />

Are you looking for a beauty oil that<br />

contains a blend of some of the most<br />

effective oils available and that these oils are<br />

just 100% pure and natural with no fillers<br />

or cheap additives?<br />

Our new ULTIMATE BEAUTY OIL<br />

BLEND contains a perfect combination of<br />

three of the best natural healing and skin<br />

restoration oils available to give your skin<br />

what it needs!<br />

The first oil is the remarkable Organic<br />

Dilo. One of the best kept secrets of the<br />

Pacific Islands Dilo oil may however be the<br />

number one natural beauty oil available.<br />

According to ethnobotanist<br />

Chris Kilham, Dilo is a powerful<br />

skin regenerator, as it is one of<br />

the most effective agents in<br />

promoting the regeneration<br />

and formation of new skin<br />

tissue. It is super-absorbing and<br />

can penetrate all three layers of<br />

the skin, offering exceptional<br />

cell hydration and regeneration.<br />

Dilo contains powerful<br />

antibacterial, antioxidant and<br />

anti-inflammatory properties<br />

which promotes the growth of<br />

healthy and glowing skin.<br />

Organic Argan oil (or liquid<br />

gold) is the next amazing<br />

oil that is extremely rich in<br />

beneficial nutrients, fatty acids<br />

and vitamin E. It gives the<br />

skin a youthful glow restores<br />

elasticity and leaves the skin<br />

feeling plumper and softer.<br />

Wild Rosehip is the final powerful oil. It<br />

is known to hydrate the skin and correct<br />

skin damage over a period of time. It is well<br />

known to help with scars, stretch marks,<br />

age spots, skin pigmentation and reduce<br />

the signs of premature aging.<br />

The ULTIMATE BEAUTY OIL BLEND<br />

helps give your skin the nourishment<br />

and nutrition it may require to restore<br />

itself and keep it vibrant and flawless.<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 />

BOOST BRAIN<br />

PERFORMANCE UP TO 30%<br />

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

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

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

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

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

Studies on TEBONIN Show:<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

balance.<br />

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

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

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

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic<br />

clinical dose without having to take a large<br />

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba<br />

products on the market, and tested by a<br />

major medical journal, only TEBONIN<br />

passed all five of the test requirements.<br />

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements<br />

and the rest didn’t pass more than three<br />

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is<br />

the only Gingko biloba extract shown<br />

to activated all areas of the brain and is<br />

considered the gold standard in Gingko.<br />

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions<br />

of consumers worldwide for over 30<br />

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets<br />

consumed each day.<br />

REAL ESTATE<br />

A pleasant surprise - “As Is, Where Is”<br />

214B Mt Pleasant Rd, Mt Pleasant<br />

Auction: From 12pm, Thursday 13 <strong>December</strong>, Harcourts Grenadier, 98 Moorhouse Ave – unless sold prior<br />

4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms | 4 toilets | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 3 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number: SM0133<br />

Serving as an immaculate example of an as<br />

is, where is property, this partially repaired<br />

four-bedroom home enjoys exceptional<br />

north-facing views over the sea and coastline<br />

offering the ultimate hillside lifestyle.<br />

With remediation three-quarters complete,<br />

the vendors have now exceeded their cap and<br />

don’t wish to proceed any further with the<br />

remaining repairs, and therefore, they offer<br />

this superbly presented home to a new buyer<br />

who can live incredibly comfortably while<br />

they finish the last of the work required in<br />

their own time.<br />

The property’s cladding has been repaired<br />

and a new kitchen installed. The kitchen<br />

exudes modern style with its granite<br />

benchtops and breakfast bar, all benefiting<br />

from an elevated outlook over the sea that<br />

stretches across to Ferrymead.<br />

The multi-level living layout includes a<br />

breath-taking lounge on the central portion of<br />

the first floor which features a double height<br />

ceiling that contributes a sense of grandeur to<br />

the space. From there, a small set of steps lead<br />

you up to the kitchen and open plan dining<br />

and living area where you can admire the<br />

unobstructed views beyond. Lots of balconies<br />

and decks provide outdoor flow and there is<br />

some good flat lawn for children to play.<br />

Four good sized bedrooms are serviced by<br />

three bathrooms and a powder room, with the<br />

master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe<br />

and an ensuite with a spa bath. One bedroom<br />

has a kitchenette and could be used to hosts<br />

guest or run Airbnb. There’s great level drive<br />

on access with turning and internal access<br />

triple car garaging which are further enticing<br />

features of the property.<br />

Located within easy reach of the various<br />

coastal suburbs that lead you around to<br />

Sumner Beach, this property also enjoys a<br />

relatively straight-forward commute into the<br />

city centre which will take you less than 20<br />

minutes by car. Zoned and within walking<br />

distance to Mt Pleasant School (decile 10).<br />

Being sold on an as is, where is basis, this<br />

property offers comfort and presents buyers<br />

with the opportunity to complete the home<br />

to their taste. Possibly the best we have<br />

marketed!<br />

Open Homes: Wednesday, Saturday &<br />

Sunday 3:15pm - 4:00pm.<br />

New Blind Sales Priced from $30<br />

• By Sophie Cornish and Julia Evans<br />

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stan down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

council.”<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffere damage<br />

in the February and June, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

EPOXY<br />

EPOXY grout is a large part of the answer in making sure showers last<br />

the distance. EPOXY grout is 90% non porous. With all the chemicals,<br />

soap residue, mineral deposits and dirt that end up on the shower<br />

base, it really does need EPOXY grout if you want it to last 10+ years.<br />
