St Margaret’s giving back

THE ST Margaret’s College

school year has started on a

charitable note.

Staff have built 20 bicycles

and donated them to Heart Kids

families and also donated 150

lunches to those in need through

the Eat My Lunch initiative.

Said St Margaret’s College

principal Diana Patchett: “It was

very emotional to see the pure

joy on the children’s faces when

they came to collect their bikes.”

Parents of four-year-old heart

child Harri Brown, Rod and Mel

Brown said the generosity shown

meant a lot to them and their

son. “It’s overwhelming that the

amazing people who work at St

Margaret’s wanted to support

Heart Kids NZ and our son Harri

by assembling and gifting him

a wonderful bike to ride with a

cool helmet, lock and bandana.

He loves it, thank you.”

Heart Kids is the only New

Zealand charity that provides

support to those with congenital

heart defects and childhood

heart disease.

Heart Kids regional family

support co-ordinator Margaret

Hewett-Hawker said: “Canterbury

Heart Kids NZ are deeply

moved and grateful for the kindness,

generosity and thoughtfulness

of the St Margaret’s staff for

supporting our heart children.”

“Having the opportunity to

support Heart Kids, endorsing

philanthropy and generosity of

spirit, while also providing our

staff with a valuable team building

experience was the perfect

way to kick off the school year,”

Mrs Patchett said. The school

also supported the Eat My Lunch

programme by giving each staff

member an Eat My Lunch meal.

“We traditionally all eat

together at the beginning of the

year and this year we decided to

extend this by providing food to

those who otherwise would be

going hungry,” she said.

With every lunch bought, the

charity donates another to a

child in need.

Zaras, Kates and twins at Rangi

THREE SETS of twins, three

Zaras and seven Kates are part

of a full boarding house at

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School this

year.

Director of boarding Kyleigh

Lyth said it’s been a fantastic

first few days with the new

girls arriving and the returning

boarders catching up with their

friends and housemates.

“The weather has been

fabulous,” said Mrs Lyth. “The

programme has been a real

hit with the girls. They have

enjoyed pottery, an ice cream

sundae parlour, a movie night, a

visit to the gondola, and a walk

finishing at Corsair Bay for a

barbecue and swim.”

Of the 138 girls in the house,

there are 36 year 9 boarders and

40 new girls. One of the points

of difference about boarding at

Rangi Ruru is the opportunity

senior boarders have to “go

flatting” within the boarding

house. The older girls are

looking forward to experiencing

the extra independence this

gives them.

“They love it. As well as

learning about budgeting and

other important parts of living

together, once a term the girls

are encouraged to host a flat

dinner party and are welcome

to invite friends. At one last year

I was lucky enough to attend,

we had a wonderful Thai dinner

in the flat. It’s a great way to

introduce the girls to flatting

while still having a full support

network around them,” Mrs

Lyth said.

As the boarders settle in,

there’s a lot of positive energy

and talk bouncing around

the walls of the Rangi Ruru

boarding house.

Greenwood-Buchanan said she

was “very privileged” to be asked

back to work as Paige’s personal

hairdresser, tour companion and

personal assistant.

“I think she likes me because

we like a lot of the same things

. . . the fact I can help her with

her hair and make-up is a bit of a

treat for her because she usually

always does it herself. We just get

on really well,” she said.

While Greenwood-Buchanan

was in charge of setting up

Paige’s dressing room, she said

the star preferred to get ready and

decide what to wear by herself.

She described Paige as a “classy

lady” who knows how to make

herself look a “million dollars.”

“She is absolutely lovely. She

Buchanan said.

She said it was a “career

highlight” to work with Paige.

“I remember listening to her

songs in the 80s . . . I was in awe

of her voice, her presence and

persona.”

Touring with Paige in 2012

“kicked off a massive career”

for Greenwood-Buchanan who

“didn’t really know” what she

was going to do after 29 years as a

hairdresser.

She has since been involved

in sourcing and styling wigs,

hairdressing, make-up and

managing wardrobes backstage

for shows. Following her first

tour with Paige, Greenwood-

Buchanan was contacted by one

of The Court Theatre’s leading

directors and asked to work on

wigs and hair backstage.

“I haven’t looked back really.

I have been contracted to do

this work ever since . . . it is a

whole new career,” she said.

Greenwood-Buchanan has also

led an exciting career on stage,

playing the lead role of Velma

Kelly in Showbiz Christchurch’s

production of Chicago in 2008.

She is also a co-director and

co-performer in vocal trio The

more for the public this year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Students nuts and bolts about robots

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BURNSIDE HIGH School

students with a flair for

electronics will take their own

robot to a national competition.

Aditi Sharma, Alisha Sangwan

and Aarya Advilkar have spent

hours joining wheels, axles,

motors and gears to create their

own robotic machine.

But the hard work has paid

off, with the students travelling

to the Vex Robotics National

Competition in Auckland later

this month.

The competition requires

students to build and

programme a robot, which

will then undertake a series of

challenges.

The students have designed

their robot to launch balls

through a catapult design, go up

onto platforms and flip flags.

It is controlled by a remote

controller.

Aditi, 15, said it is an

opportunity for them as they can

meet other people who share the

same interests.

They have been working on

building the robot since January

last year and have spent time in

their school holidays working on

the project.

BUILDERS: Burnside High School students Alisha Sangwan, Aditi Sharma and Aarya Advilkar will

be taking their robot to the Vex Robotics National Competition

Alisha, 13, said the students

are hoping to earn a good

placing in the competition.

“Top 50 would be good, but the

least would be getting experience

and new ideas of what other

OPTION ONE

people think,” she said.

All three students share an

interest in electronics and how

robotics could impact society in

the future.

Alisha said while she doesn’t

think “robots are going to take

over the world” learning about

them is helpful if you want

to go into different types of

technology.

She said the programming

for the robot has similarities to

science, technology, engineering

and mathematics.

Aarya, 14, said she “likes

robotics so much” and thinks

it will help her in the future as

she is considering becoming an

architect.

“I like to plan ideas for the

robots and how it can compete

in the game and how it can fulfil

the task within the game,” she

said.

Aditi said she is taking three

technology subjects this year and

is interested in pursuing a career

in engineering.

“I think robots would be a

good part of society, they can

help in so many ways. They can

do things humans can’t,” she

said.

About 80 teams from around

New Zealand are taking part in

the event which aims to increase

the awareness of robotics in

school communities.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Bird nurse spreading her wings

• By Matt Slaughter

AFTER 20 years of caring for

some of Christchurch’s most

vulnerable, flying residents Jackie

Stevenson is ready to spread her

own wings.

The 72-year-old Parklands

resident says she’s on the lookout

for someone who shares her love

for birds to take her place nursing

them back to health.

Mrs Stevenson gave up her job

as a nurse when she realised birds

were her true passion.

Since then, her home has been

transformed into a bird rescue

centre.

However, Mrs Stevenson

said the long days and sleepless

nights, which came with caring

for sick birds had taken their toll.

“Each year I must admit, I

think this has to be my last year.”

“I’m getting older and each

year’s getting harder. It’s quite

physical work.”

Mrs Stevenson said for all of

the birds she had managed to

save, many died in her care and it

had made her job even harder.

She said her decision to seek

someone to take over her role had

also been made for her husband.

“He hates coming home and

seeing me so tired, so I’ve got to

think of him too.”

Mrs Stevenson said she

estimated that she had cared for

about 200 birds last year.

All of her work had been

voluntary, with some financial

support coming in the form of

donations from the public.

Mrs Stevenson received

$100 in petrol vouchers a

year from the Department of

Conservation and dog and cat

biscuits to mash up and feed to

the birds from the SPCA and

FLY AWAY:

Dogwatch.

She said cats were the main

cause of injuries to birds.

But recently the number of

injuries caused by vehicles had

increased.

Mrs Stevenson said she had

treated a number of species of

birds.

However, the number of native

wood pigeons that had been

brought to her with injuries was

increasing.

These birds most commonly

received their injuries from flying

into car windows.

Amongst those also commonly

in her care were New Zealand

native fantails.

As Mrs Stevenson continued

to search for someone to train to

take over her role, she said there

were a few easy things people

could do to make her job easier.

“One of the main things is not

picking birds up that don’t need

to be picked up.”

“With most birds, even if they

can’t fly they can get up trees,

they can get out of reach of cats.”

She said it was about “knowing

their needs and knowing when to

intervene.”

Mrs Stevenson said those who

were interested in taking over

from her could get in touch

directly through the Bird Rescue

Centres, part of New Zealand

Bird Rescue Charitable

Trust’s website www.birdrescue.

Positive steps to solve bus issue

Environment Canterbury

senior manager

public transport

Stewart Gibbon

responds to the

article last week

about Diana

Isaac Retirement

Village residents’

transport issue

Environment Canterbury

introduced the idea of a Community

Vehicle Trust for Diana Isaac

Retirement Village in November

and has had two conversations

with Graham Tate and other

residents on the matter, including

the January meeting. Throughout

Canterbury, where traditional

scheduled public transport is

unavailable, the Community Vehicle

Trust model has proven to

be highly successful in delivering

accessible, flexible and affordable

transport options to defined

geographical communities. We

are focused on identifying a solution

that is sustainable and will

meet the longer term needs of the

residents. The transport needs

of the residents, and the flexible,

close proximity and community

nature of the Community

Vehicle Trust model appears to

align well with the current and

future transport needs of the

residents. We are still exploring

the viability of the option

with the residents and Ryman

Healthcare. However, discussions

to date have been positive and

focused on running a trial period

of up to six months, to validate

the feasibility of the idea in this

specific urban context. ECan

would provide support to the

retirement village in setting up its

Community Vehicle Trust, then

all operational matters moving

forward would be managed by

the trust, such as determining

vehicle size and type, destinations

and trip times. Community

Vehicle Trusts receive annual

grant funding from ECan and

the New Zealand Transport

Agency, and obtain grant funding

from other sources. They

also receive funds from customer

usage of the service to cover the

cost of the journeys taken. These

funding sources combined enable

the trust to procure and manage

their vehicles and associated

administrative functions.

OPTION: ECan is investigating a service to transport retirement

village residents now that the Orbiter bus no longer stops

outside the village.

Ashlee Strawbridge has been

named to trial for the New

team.

Seventy-five basketballers from

across the country will attend

the trials this week at the Bruce

Pulman Arena in Auckland,

before the team competes at the

FIBA Oceania’s in Noumea, New

Caledonia in August. The aim is

to qualify for the FIBA Asia Cup.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

director of sport Mandy Anderson

said Ashlee is a standout

performer and a player with huge

future potential.

“The under-17 group provides

a large number of potential team

members and that together with

North Island dominance in basketball,

really underlines Ashlee’s

significant achievement being

selected for trials.”

Ashlee celebrated her 17th

birthday the day she found out

about her selection.

She said she is “stoked” to be

trialling.

“I will be working and training

with every bit of energy and drive

I have to represent my country,”

she said. The team to play in

New Caledonia is expected to be

named by March.

FORMER St Bede’s College

student Jake Ratcliffe is on a

The 21-year-old became

the first New Zealand man to

play NCAA ice hockey when

he joined Westfield State in

Massachusetts in August.

In his first season to date,

Ratcliffe has tallied a

team-leading nine goals.

He also adding seven assists

for a total of 16 points to be the

second highest points scorer on

the team.

He scored three gamewinning

goals, two of them in

big conference games.

“I love it. I was excited to get

back into school after taking

three years off to play junior

hockey,” said Ratcliffe.

“It’s been everything I

expected and more . . . it’s been

a lot of fun.”

Ratcliffe’s breakout rookie

season has also come to the

delight of his coach.

“We brought Jake in to be a

point-producer and he exceeded

our expectations,” said Westfield

State coach Bob Miele.

“He has a bright future ahead

of him.”

Ratcliffe – who is majoring in

business at Westfield – made his

Centuries old folk remedy supports

good health!

A fermented liquid health

tonic offers an array of

powerful health benefits. It is

none other than the popular

apple cider vinegar or ACV.

Since the time of Hippocrates – the “Father

of Medicine” – ACV has been renowned for its

curative properties.

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS & FOLK

MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis reports how he

found that Vermonters who regularly consumed

ACV and Honey had excellent health with

many putting in a vigorous day’s work on the

farm even when well into their eighties. He also

noted the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be

remarkable with many patients reporting almost

total relief after taking a course of the

mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that

the acid and potassium in cider

vinegar counteracted calcium

deposits and helped the body

control calcium use. He also noted

that Vermonters who consumed

ACV and H around meal time

had excellent blood pressure and

circulation. The reason he found

was that protein foods thickened

the blood and vinegar thinned it.

As the blood thickens it cannot

pass as easily and quickly through

the blood vessels and capillaries. This

poor blood flow would reduce cellular

health by limiting nutrients to the cells

as well as waste elimination from the cells.

To prevent cell damage the body naturally

increases blood pressure but this puts more stress

on the blood vessels, organs and heart. Having

ACV and H with meals will help prevent protein

raising the blood pressure. It also contributes

to a feeling of greater well-being because the

thinner blood circulates quickly and more easily

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found regular

consumption of CV and H to be an excellent

health tonic with numerous Health attributes.

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all the

goodness of the apple in a form that is readily

accepted by the bodyGood health starts with good

digestion and assimilation of nutrients. ACV taken

before food will stimulate and promote healthy

digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients for

good health. A well-functioning digestive system

helps prevent disease by neutralising any toxic

substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all ACV is produced

in the traditional way and results are likely to

prove disappointing with these other vinegars.

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV with 20%

Manuka Honey is produced in Canterbury from

Organic whole apples in the traditional way. It is

double strength so you can use less.

Device to prevent

snoring

Why put up with broken sleep, when

help is at hand with Snorex, an appliance

that prevents snoring, sleep apnoea, and

dry and raw throats.

Snorex is custom-fitted to your mouth

for comfort, and a follow up service is

provided.

Denise Lim has been involved with

Snores for 22 years and has had a 98%

success rate with

people using the

appliance. Snoring

can be a health

hazard, causing

sleep apnoea, where

the person actually

stops breathing for

short periods.

It can cause

short-term memory

loss, tiredness and

contribute to high

blood pressure.

The Snorex

device does not feel

restrictive, is noninvasive

and carries

a money-back

guarantee.

Many people are referred by ear, nose

and throat specialists, however, anyone can

phone for an appointment.

For an information pack or to discuss

the Snorex further, phone Denise Lim on

377 4318 or check out the website

www.snorex.co.nz

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

fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin

elasticity, support building of strong bones

and teeth, strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth, It also

assists weight loss by helping burn fat

for energy, promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of healthy

tissue as well as help support overall

health.
