Riccarton

bus lounge

problems

‘rear ugly

head’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TROUBLE HAS returned to the

Riccarton Rd bus lounges again.

Riccarton Community Constable

Aaron Thorn said anti-social issues

the lounges faced when it opened in

December 2015 is “rearing its ugly

head again.”

He said the main issue is loitering

with the youth aged in their teens

being “disrespectful and smart” and

not moving on from the bus lounges

when asked.

But Constable Thorn said the issues

don’t appear to be the same as

what they used to be.

The bus lounges on Riccarton Rd

have frequently attracted anti-social

behaviour since opening, including

assaults.

“It is minor in the grand scheme

of things, they are just loitering and

hang around and the guards get a bit

frustrated,” Constable Thorn said.

Police met with the security officers

over the issue last week.

The problem started again just

before Christmas involving youths

aged between 14 and 17.

THAT’S ONE amazing story on page 4

today.

Jake Bailey, the young bloke who gained

international attention in 2015 with his

gripping speech about his shock cancer diagnosis,

is competing in the Coast to Coast. He had been given

two weeks to live.

Jake’s now 21 and resides on the Gold Coast and is living life

to the fullest.

He will take part in the team event. Jake will do the cycle leg

of 160km while his two mates will run and kayak.

That cycle leg could be savage if there is an easterly wind

blowing. It will be like biking into a brick wall.

Not bad for someone who was never into sport. It is amazing

what determination can do.

Plan to soften road works blow

In Brief

BOARD FUNDING

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board’s funding pool is now

open. Applications can be

made for funding from the

youth development fund,

discretionary response fund

and off the ground fund. For

more information on the

criteria of each or to make an

CLEAR SIGNAGE and

revamped car parking will be

installed to soften the blow for

Riccarton businesses facing

major roadworks outside their

stores this year.

City council staff have been

working with Riccarton Rd

businesses to come up with solutions

to lessen the impact of the

upcoming roadworks starting

between Harakeke and Matipo

Sts.

The work, set to begin next

month, is not expected to be

completed until December 2020.

It comes after businesses raised

concerns over how they would

be affected, leading to a meeting

with city council staff and the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board before

Christmas.

Faster construction methods,

additional signage to indicate

businesses are open and where

available car parking is located

will actioned.

The city council will also

revamp its spaces in the shared

car park on the northern side of

Riccarton Rd between Rimu St

and Straven Rd to provide twohour

parking for shoppers.

However, Inspirations manager

Robyn Speed, said parking will

“certainly be an issue.”

“I am hoping the footpaths

will be open so customer traffic

shouldn’t be a problem,” she said.

Ms Speed said her only concern

is how the roadworks will

affect car parking on a Saturday

morning when the Christchurch

Farmers’ Market is being held.

But she said it is one of those

things that has to be done and it

will take as long as it takes.

Bargain Chemist manager

Michael Sohn said the city council

needs to ensure one lane

is left open for traffic and it is

publicised the businesses are still

open.

The city council is also

developing a parking map for

customers it will circulate and

businesses will be able to give to

its customers.

Zac Plumb, a restaurant worker

based on Riccarton Rd, said people

are concerned the last of the

untimed parking in Riccarton

will be gone because the parks

between Rimu and Straven Rd

will become timed.

“I think they probably need to

come up with something similar

to Wilson Parking. I know people

complain about all the parking

in there is paid, but at least you

can park there without hassle,”

he said.

Mr Plumb said the main thing

the city council needs to make

sure of, is the foot traffic is not

affected.

The roadworks will involve up-

Jake Bailey takes on a new challenge

• By Sophie Cornish

AS A CHILD Jake Bailey was not

the sporting type.

But at 21-years-old, he is taking

on the Coast to Coast next

month.

The cancer survivor made

international headlines in 2015

with his gripping speech about

his shock diagnosis as head boy

of Christchurch Boys’ High

School.

Mr Bailey was told he had two

weeks to live after finding out

he had Burkitt’s Non-Hodgkins

Lymphoma, the fastest growing

cancer known to man.

During the Coast to Coast he

will tackle the 160km cycle part

of the event over two days, in a

team with two old school friends,

who will take on the kayak and

run legs.

Since beating his cancer and

announcing he was in remission

in January 2016, Mr Bailey has

been working full-time as a

public speaker. He has shared

his story and what it taught him

across almost 50 cities around

the world.

Now living on the Gold Coast,

Mr Bailey is also the author

What Cancer Taught Me and

features in the documentary The

Common Touch, which is about

his cancer journey.

He will return to Christchurch

INSPIRATIONAL: Jake Bailey will be competing in the Coast to Coast after beating cancer.

next month to compete in

the event he calls “iconic” to

Canterbury.

As a young boy, Mr Bailey

would go with his father to watch

the end of the Coast to Coast.

But he said he “never dreamed

of taking part.”

Mr Bailey’s close call with

death has serve as his motivation

for getting into endurance sport.

“In both a practical sense,

because it minimises my risk of

relapse and makes sure my body

is fit and in an emotional, mental

and personal sense.”

He said he’s developed an

“obsession” in learning what his

body is capable of.

“Going through cancer

treatment and seeing what my

body could withstand, I have

grown a fascination with what

the body can do and putting

mind over matter and having

mental strength. That’s why

endurance sport appeals to me,

it’s a battle between your head

and your body to push yourself.”

Over the last four months,

Mr Bailey has completed

triathlon events, something

which came as a shock to him

as he could not swim more than

25m a year ago.

“I did fairly poorly,” he said.

“But I really enjoyed them.”

Bid to extend Halswell pool hours

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ABOUT 500 signatures have

been collected and will be

presented to the city council

in support of extending the

Halswell community pool’s

opening hours.

City councillor Anne

Galloway is set to present the

signatures to city

council staff this

week.

The Te Hapua

Halswell Summer

Pool’s current

hours are

Anne

Galloway

Debbie

Mora

11.30am-7pm. It

opened for the

summer season on

November 17 and

will close again on

March 31.

“There is really a

strong demand for

it . . . I think it is a

shame to have this

fantastic resource

out there and that

the facility isn’t

being used to its

full potential,” Cr Galloway said.

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Debbie Mora has also lodged

a request with the city council

to maximise the pool’s limited

opening hours over the summer.

Ms Mora said she would like

to see the pool open “anywhere

from 7am” over summer.

“Some people are frustrated

with the opening times . . .

anything earlier than 11.30am

is going to be appreciated,” she

said.

If Ms Mora’s request is

approved by city council

chief executive Karleen

Edwards, it will be sent back

to the community board to be

discussed at its meeting next

Tuesday.

But city council head of

recreation sports and events

Nigel Cox said the pool needs to

be open when there is enough

demand from people wanting to

swim. Figures from last summer

showed patronage was low when

the pool was open during the

early morning hours.

Last year, due to the Pioneer

Recreation and Sport Centre

being closed for maintenance,

the Te Hapua pool was open

from 6am-8pm weekdays and

7am-8pm on the weekend.

Mr Cox said the average

number of people using the

pool before 10am last year was

between 1.2-2.6. The largest

count before 10am for the whole

summer was 13 people.

In the 2016/17 financial year,

the pool recorded a deficit of

$191,000. However, Cr Galloway

said Halswell residents pay a lot

of rates and the facility should be

they want to use it. She also said

many residents didn’t know the

pool was open earlier last season.

Halswell Residents’

Association secretary David

population in Halswell and

be upgraded. The association

will discuss the idea of a heated

on Monday.

return

lounges

•From page 1

Constable Thorn said police

can’t be at the bus lounges all day.

“Obviously, when we are there

they behave themselves or scatter

themselves. We are just going to

have to advise them to call the

police if any of that stuff is going

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Catherine Chu was “surprised”

the issues had returned.

The board previously had a

working group in place and it

had sent youth workers into the

lounges to ease the trouble last

year.

Ms Chu said if anti-social

behaviour is going to be a

problem the group may need to be

re-established to explore limited

wi-fi and police presence in the

area.

She was keen on beautifying

unused land on Division St such

as installing a basketball court

What it takes to remove the chlorine

Fire rages, homes at risk

With the

clock ticking

on the city

council’s

self-imposed

deadline

to end

temporary

chlorination of the

water supply within

12 months, water

supply improvement

programme manager

Helen Beaumont gives

an update on how the

work is tracking

IT HAS been a year since the city

council voted to temporarily add

chlorine to the drinking water

supply in response to advice from

the Canterbury Medical Officer

of Health.

Over the past few months we

have made significant progress

on upgrading the wells that

supply our water so that we

can get back to having an

unchlorinated water supply.

To date we have upgraded

25 per cent of our wells – by

volume of water produced – to

bring them up to a standard

that exceeds the present

requirements.

We’ve set the bar higher than

required because we anticipate

that more stringent standards

will be introduced by the

Government shortly.

Upgrading each well takes

between two and six weeks and

we can only work on a limited

number of wells at any one time

because we still to need supply

water to homes and businesses.

We have been running a water

conservation campaign asking

people to use less water so we can

continue work on the wells and

we really appreciate the efforts

people have been making.

Our data shows average water

use to date is well below the

summer averages for the past two

years. If that keeps up we should

be able to continue with the well

remediation work as planned.

By May we expect to have

completed interim upgrades on

19 below-ground wells and raised

another 41 wells above ground,

bringing the total number of

secure wells to 98.

Those wells collectively provide

more than 60 per cent of the

city’s water supply.

If we upgrade those wells

as planned, we should

have a sufficient volume of

unchlorinated water to supply

the city over the winter months

when we use about 50 per cent

less water than we do in the

summer.

However, even after doing this

work, providing chlorine-free

water to everyone in every part of

the city remains a challenge.

The water supply is delivered

through nine discrete zones.

The central zone is our biggest

water zone and supplies water to

42 per cent of the population. It

is the oldest part of the city and

where we have the most wells

that need to be raised above

ground.

There is high demand for water

relative to the available capacity

in this zone and, therefore, very

little excess capacity. This makes

it difficult to do the necessary

upgrades.

To address the challenge in

the central zone, in addition

to the interim upgrades on

below-ground wells, we are also

working to install ultra violet

treatment at the main pump

station.

The main pump station is the

biggest supplier of water to the

central zone, and we are working

with the contractor on ways that

the installation can be sped up

so water can be treated with UV

instead of chlorine at this site.

We are also looking at whether

we can transfer water across zone

boundaries.

There are technical challenges

because of the different pressure

levels in some of the zones.

However, it may be possible

for us to use some of the pump

stations on the boundaries of the

central zone to push untreated

water into that area.

In addition, we are

investigating whether we can

make use of two private wells on

the Metro Sports Facility site.

They tap into deep aquifers

and were originally drilled for a

ground-source heat pump that is

no longer required.

They may be suitable to supply

potable water to homes and

businesses in the central zone.

We are confident that seven of

the nine city supply zones will be

chlorine free by May this year.

It is likely that we will have

sufficient water from secure wells

in the Ferrymead zone, and we

are doing further modelling of

water supply options and looking

at opportunities to fast track

works in the central zone.

In the meantime, we are also

looking at how we can reduce the

amount of chlorine in the water.

At the pump stations where

the chlorine has two minutes to

react with the water and disinfect

it before it reaches the first

consumer we have been able to

halve the dose of chlorine.

We are now looking at whether

we can re-route the water at some

of the other pump stations so we

can give the chlorine a longer

time to do its job before it reaches

the first consumer.

For example, if we can send the

water around the block before

it reaches people’s homes, there

may be other pump stations

where we can also reduce the

dose.

Each pump station has

between one and six wells

supplying it. Where some wells

are remediated and some are not,

we have to chlorinate all of the

water unless we can isolate

the wells that haven’t been

remediated.

We can only do that when the

demand for water is low.

When there are periods of

low demand we aim to only use

pump stations without chlorine.

It is only when absolutely

necessary, as water demand

rises, that we bring the

chlorinated pump stations into

service.

We all want the chlorine out

of our water and we are working

hard to ensure we can have an

unchlorinated water supply as

soon as possible.

PRECIOUS: Limit the time you

operate your garden hose.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Western News article on

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association member Mark

Peters slamming the lack

of maintenance next to

the train tracks adjacent to

Carmen Rd

Anna Epiha – Cool story,

do you want to pay the same

amount of rates as they pay in

Fendalton too?

Ak Hawker – As an exresident

of “Fen dal ton darling”

it’s much the same as anywhere

else, you get the break-ins, you

get the stolen cars, you get the

broken bus stop advertising signs

and you get the unmowed grass

berms everywhere. And hey

there are pot holes in the roads

too. But it’s the residents here

that hold the high standard, not

the city council.

Hamish Middleton – I

see the old Sockburn School

grounds are quickly becoming

a fire hazard. Must have been

too difficult for the Government

to arrange the groundkeeper to

continue mowing. Here’s an idea,

get the city council to go mow

it and they’ll realise it’s where

the new pool complex should be

built.

shops, regular maintenance and

council investment.

Michael Vivian – If Stanmore

Rd was in Fendalton it

wouldn’t have any homeless

people hanging round.

Jonathan Scott – Fire risk

waiting to happen.

Elinor Graeme

Washington: I would say the

New Zealand Transport Agency

is not interested in the plantings

in the roads after they have put

them in. Weeds are now the

most obvious plant.

Dawn Hanara – Fendalton

has a bike lane along the tracks,

not grass.

Stella Wyn – I always

thought they were there for a

purpose like those dry grass/

plants in the centre divider.

Sam Smith – So much victim

mentality going on, it’s a bit of

grass, if it offends you so much

mow it yourself.

Yvonne Brown – Would

never get that long in Fendalton,

can’t any residents get together

and put it right, “get rid of the

fire hazard.”

Kaye Le Fleur – Gerry

Brownlee lives there, of course, it

gets more attention.

Heather Wilkins – It’s

almost like they don’t care.

Come on, doesn’t take long to

clean up.

Jeremy Maxwell – Welcome

to New Brighton’s problems.

Craig Watson – Time for a

working bee Horntabrians.

Yvonne Brown – Too many

folk bury their heads and think,

not my problem. That’s what

makes our rates continually

rise. Both the stormwater drains

outside my gate and across the

roadside have been cleared by me

when needed and grass berms

attended too because the “renters

don’t bother, no hardship for

those that have the time.”

Mike Harry – Big difference,

Carmen Rd is a State Highway

owned by NZTA, no reflection

on Fendalton whatsoever. Some

people should think before they

speak.

Geoff Taylor – You should

see New Brighton’s riverbanks.

Andrew Johnson – Not

wrong. You only have to look at

which side of the city’s roads was

repaired first after the quakes.

Lynn Mortlock – Put a

cycleway in there.

Ardern asked to open

Knights Stream School

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PRIME MINISTER Jacinda

Ardern could be a surprise guest

at the opening of Halswell’s

newest school.

She has been invited to attend

the official opening of the $11

million Knights Stream School

in March.

“We would love a little

baby Neve to come. We

are hoping they would

both come. We are a

family school so it would

be cool to have some other

children here as well,”

principal Mike Molloy

said.

The school, along

with Wigram Primary

School and Ararira

Springs Primary, have

written to Ms Ardern’s

office to see if she can

attend three openings on

March 22.

“We thought that

might be a more lucrative

attraction for a person to come

down and get three lots of things

done,” Mr Molloy said.

But he said the schools would

not know if Ms Ardern could

attend until closer to the time.

Wigram Primary School is

shifting to its new school site at

Jacinda

Ardern

Mike Molloy

5 The Runway in Wigram Skies

from its Sockburn School site. It

will be open from February 4 for

the new school term.

The first stage of Ararira

Springs Primary on Southfield

Drive in Lincoln has also been

completed and will open at the

start of the term.

About 110 pupils will

also start at Knights

Stream School on

February 5. Last week the

school had a site blessing,

which was attended by

Ministry of Education

Canterbury education

director Coralanne Child,

city councillor Anne

Galloway and Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board

member Ross McFarlane.

A karakia was also

performed by Justin

Tipa from Te Taumutu

Rūnanga.

Mr Molloy said the

final landscaping and signage for

the school is being completed.

A cycle track, designed by

Christchurch Adventure Park

operations manager John Paul

Jones, is also being built to give

the pupils somewhere to “let off

a bit of steam.”

•From page 1

Norton credits her youngest

daughter for starting her career

in netball. Fifteen years ago,

her then six-year-old daughter

decided she wanted to play

netball.

But because the primary

school she attended had no

coach, Norton had no choice but

to “step up.” While she had to

“very quickly” teach herself how

to teach others to play the game,

she soon found she had a flair for

coaching.

The Hornby Netball Club

coach and Christchurch Netball

Centre junior co-ordinator said

she “couldn’t believe it” when

she won the award.

“I do a lot of coaching and

I work really hard. I do that

because I want to do my best for

the girls that I coach. But never

at any point did I even think

about things like (the award). It

is incredible,” she said.

The award capped off a

big year for Norton who was

presented the Founders Trophy

by Hornby Netball Club founder

Lynlea Willan at the September

senior prize-giving. She was

then awarded coach of the year

by the Christchurch Netball

Centre.

Willan.

Norton said she is happiest as

a coach when she sees a player

who has struggled in the sport

make an improvement by the

end of the netball season.

“If you can get good results

that is fantastic, but there are

always going to be times when

your results aren’t so good,” she

said. Norton said a key thing

is being able to get people on

the team involved in their own

learning.

“Most people want to be better

at what they are doing and the

only way of doing that is if they

Norton describes Hornby as

a “community that thrives on

sport.”

In her career, Norton has

coached more than 20 teams,

including Hornby Senior A,

Middleton Grange A and the

under-14 Christchurch Netball

Centre representative teams.

“I think for anyone who takes

coaching seriously, being able to

do it professionally is always the

goal . . . if I can take it further

great, and if I can’t, I will just

keep on going.”

HEARING HELP IN HORNBY

How is your hearing?

In New Zealand, one in six people have some degree of hearing difficulty.

Over the age of 60, more than half the population are living with a

significant hearing reduction. This invisible condition can be incredibly

frustrating, as conversation on a one to one basis can be no problem, but

social situations become very uncomfortable indeed. Background noise

can make conversation almost impossible to follow causing some

sufferers to nod and smile and pretend to hear, remove themselves from

the conversation, or even avoid going to the social function completely.

Other early signs of hearing difficulty are a creeping up of the volume

control on the TV, frequently asking family and friends to repeat

themselves, or accusing people of mumbling when they speak. With

hearing loss recently being linked to the early onset of Dementia in studies

throughout the world, these early signs are not to be ignored!

Hear Again have extensive experience of helping people overcome their

hearing difficulties. From a simple check to see if your ears are blocked

with wax, to the provision and fine tuning of the very latest hearing devices

from the worlds leading hearing aid manufacturers, the friendly team are

here to help, even if you need to be seen on a weekend.

Neil Hardisty, NZAS Audiometrist, has been expertly overcoming hearing

difficulties for residents of Christchurch since 2009. Neil is frequently

praised for his limitless patience, wonderful caring nature and ability to

solve problems which other clinicians have deemed impossible. Neil is

never satisfied until you are! His expertise, coupled with Customer

Service Advisors Christine and Louise with their welcoming, friendly

nature, and the very latest technology make for a winning combination.

Hear Again offer FREE no obligation initial hearing assessments. If you,

or any of your loved ones have noticed any difficulties with your hearing,

this can be quickly and painlessly checked for you at The Hub, 418 Main

South Road, Hornby. If you already have hearing aids from any

manufacturer, we will give them a FREE clean and check to ensure they

are in tip top condition. Call 03 974 1658 to book your free check.

We look forward to delighting you with our service and help you, or your

loved ones make the most of your hearing and to rejoin the conversation.

Young footballers

take on Japan’s best

ON TOUR: Seamus Gallagher and Nicholas Murphy leaving

Christchurch in their new Phoenix gear.

CHRISTCHURCH United

youngsters Seamus Gallagher and

Nicholas Murphy have been on

tour in Japan with the Wellington

Phoenix Soccer School.

The two Christchurch United

under-12 players were invited

by the Phoenix management

to strengthen the squad for a

demanding two-week, 10-match

tour against some of Japan’s

leading clubs.

Christchurch United Academy

director Colin Williamson said

the tour was a unique occasion

for Seamus, who attends St

Thomas of Canterbury College,

and Nicholas, who will start at St

Bede’s College this year, to test

their skills at a higher level.

“Seamus and Nicholas are two

players with great potential and it

will be interesting to see how they

will do playing alongside other

strong players against top youth

teams,” said Williamson.

Japanese football has created

a global reputation for youth

player development and its junior

and senior teams have been

impressive at FIFA tournaments

across all age-groups.

The Phoenix side arrived on

January 10 and the next day

received a stark warning of what

to expect when they were well

beaten 7-1 in their first match

TEAMMATES: Nicholas Murphy (top row, third from right) and

Seamus Gallagher (eighth from right) after their match against

the Yokohama Marinos.

against JEF United, one of Japan’s

leading first division clubs.

The Phoenix lads and their

new Christchurch teammates

bounced back well, beating an

Ichihara BONZ school team, and

then improved even further in a

4-1 win over the local Ichihara

under-12 selection, with Seamus

setting up the third goal.

They then moved to the Tokyo

suburb of Kanagawa where they

played Yokohama Marinos, the

wealthiest club in Japan with

a famous academy that has

produced some of the country’s

biggest names.

The young New Zealanders

showed how much they had

progressed since their heavy first

game defeat by competing well

with their Japanese peers.

It was an even contest at 1-1

at the break, but they allowed

Yokohama to pull away in the

final stages of the 70min game for

an admirable 2-4 defeat.

Phoenix Soccer School director

Jo Dawkins said the boys were in

tears after the match.

“Not because they lost, but

because they knew they deserved

something out of it.”

She said it was one of the closest

results achieved by a junior New

Zealand team.

Things did not get easier as the

young Kiwis faced other J-League

clubs Kawasaki Frontale and

Kashima Reysol.

The players also got a full

cultural immersion while in

Japan, staying three nights

with the families of their

Japanese opponents in the city

of Kashiwa.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive function.

B12 is essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles,

nerve health and repair, and prevention

of homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

The tree of LIFE

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

tablet contains a highly concentrated

IS YOUR BRAIN SHRINKING?

Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy, mood swings,

difficulty sleeping, pins & needles, numbness in legs

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12 has been shown to reduce the rate of brain

shrinkage & support memory & brain function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential for energy, cell health & nerve function.

B12 SUPPORtS:

• Memory & Brain Performance

• Helps protect brain

from shrinking

• Energy & Recovery

• Nerve Function

• Vegetarian’s Diet

• Helps protect blood

vessels from damage

• Sleep

• Cellular Health & Repair

• Good Health

• Cardiovascular Health

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

to activated all areas of the brain and is

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

For those looking for a role that combines

artistic and digital talents, then this

outstanding, FREE, entry level course

delivered by local Training Provider Trainme,

design, photography or digital media as a

career.

The course covers the introduction to media

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.”
