HARD WORK on and off the

rugby field is paying off for

17-year-old David Ni.

The Christchurch Boys’ High

first XV blindside flanker will

head to South Africa to play in

the World Schools Festival next

month.

He has been mowing lawns,

selling raffles and doing other

odd jobs to help find $4500 to

pay for his share of the trip.

But mowing lawns and doing

other jobs may soon take a back

seat for David. A professional

rugby career and the big money

that goes with it is David’s goal

and he may soon take his first

steps towards that.

David received a call from

CBHS rugby master Mike

Drury last week about “an agent

who wanted to have a talk about

playing rugby in Japan after

high school.”

Bid to

save bus

service to

retirement

village fails

• By Matt Slaughter

A MAIREHAU retirement village’s

11-month battle with Environment

Canterbury to save their bus

service has been lost.

ECan says it has “run out of

ideas” for a compromise, which

would satisfy residents and staff

at Diana Isaac Retirement Village

after their Orbiter service was cut

last month.

The Pegasus Post reported last

month ECan had raised the idea

of trialling a service to transport

retirement village residents to bus

stops and locations they can no

longer access.

The vehicle would have been run

by a trust and volunteers from the

village.

Village resident Graham Tate

had supported the idea but said

residents had decided this would

have simply been too much work at

their stage in life.

“An email survey of about 20 per

cent of the independent residents

within this village made it clear

that there is very little support for

the proposed ECan Village Vehicle

Community Trust model.” Mr Tate

said.

IT’S THAT time of the year again – the

countdown to the City2Surf.

This year’s instalment will be the 45th

time the iconic event has been held.

Thousands upon thousands of

Cantabrians have ran, walked,

skateboarded, pushed prams and hobbled to the line over the

decades.

On pages 6-7 today, we talk to some of the people who will

take part this year.

The City2Surf is not a race – but many do consider it that, and

that’s fine. Being first across the line is a great incentive.

For others, taking on the City2Surf can be the start or end of

a personal goal from a fitness perspective or just to say I’ve done

it. With two distances, it’s an event for everyone.

$11m Belfast campus gets go ahead

• By Jess Gibson

BELFAST SCHOOL’S new

$11 million senior campus off

Johns Rd has been given the

green light and is expected to be

finished in 2021.

The new campus is

part of the Ministry of

Education’s Christchurch

Schools Rebuild programme. It

will be built within 1km of the

current school site

on Main North Rd,

which is also set

to get a $4 million

upgrade.

The population of

Belfast is expected

Sue Elley

to double from

7500 to 15,000

by 2041, which

principal Sue Elley said was the

“catalyst” for the upgrade. “Each

year our role has been increasing

and it’s expected to keep

growing,” said Mrs Elley.

She said the decision followed

a “very positive” consultation

process last year to decide

whether the preferred option

was a two-campus model for the

existing school or an entirely

new school.

“As a community, Belfast has

a strong identity and we think

that having a school on two

sites is the best option for our

community rather than having

CAMPUS: Belfast School’s growing roll means its Main North Rd site is no longer big

enough so an additional campus will be built off Johns Rd.

two schools that would be

competing against each other,”

said Mrs Elley.

The new senior campus for

year 5-8 pupils will be built on a

new site north of Johns Rd. The

Main North Rd site will become

the junior campus for year 1-4

pupils.

“To future-proof both sites,

we anticipate that each campus

will be master-planned so that

they could accommodate up to

600 students in the long-term,”

said a Ministry of Education

spokesperson.

Mrs Elley is excited about the

new development and said she

will be working closely with the

ministry, school staff and the

board of trustees to ensure the

build runs smoothly.

“Our intention is that we will

be very strongly remaining as

one school, but we will have the

advantage of having different

types of resources that the

children can use at either site.”

An education brief discussing

the development will be

produced and distributed to the

public before the planning and

design stage begins.

Retirement village introduces

taxi and car sharing scheme

•From page 1

“Personally, I think the Village

Community Vehicle Trust

concept could well work in a

village where residents’ ages were

younger than here,” Mr Tate said.

Ryman Healthcare spokesman

David King said the age of

residents had ultimately

been behind its decision

to not support the

vehicle trust idea.

“We think that

creating a trust, which

required our residents

to drive, roster, and take

full responsibility for

their own scheduled

Graham Tate

transport service, placed a large

and unfair burden on them.”

Both Mr Tate and Ryman

Healthcare were now again

calling ECan to re-route the No

44 bus service to take it along

Philpotts Rd and closer to the

village. However, ECan senior

manager of public transport

Stewart Gibbon said Philpotts

Rd could only be accessed from

one end. Ryman Healthcare had

offered to provide a portion of its

land for a bus turnaround area to

make the detour smooth.

Mr Gibbon said this would

require the construction of “a

physical piece of infrastructure

to be built to enable a bus to do a

U-turn at the end of the street.”

This would cost $100,000 and

this, combined with the time it

would take to construct, meant

ECan did not see this as a good

option, Mr Gibbon said.

He said re-routing the No 44

also did not align with ECan’s

regional public transport plan.

“We’ve run out of ideas.

We’ve offered alternatives and

we haven’t been able to implement

those alternatives, so

there’s really not much to do.”

Mr Tate said he and other

residents were hugely upset

with ECan’s stance on this.

“Our feeling is that ECan

is unwilling to offer any accessible

bus service to the village.

Residents believe this is an unacceptable

position. It seems incredible

that probably the largest

concentration of residents in the

locality and perhaps the most in

need of public transport should

have that access taken away.”

From March, Ryman Healthcare

will be operating a village

taxi and car share scheme to

make sure residents can still

get around. One will be used

as a bookable taxi, which will

be available to get residents to

and from appointments using a

Ryman-employed driver who has

a passenger licence. The second

will be available for residents who

can drive themselves.

Stickers warn off doorknockers

• By Jess Gibson

BISHOPDALE residents fed-up

with door-to-door salespeople

will soon have a simple

solution. Every home in the

area is about to receive a ‘do not

knock’ sticker.

The campaign was launched

by Consumer NZ to educate

people about their rights when

avoiding unwanted salespeople

and mobile truck shops.

Over the next few weeks,

residents can expect a newsletter

from the Bishopdale Community

Trust which will include

a sticker and information

about the campaign from

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board member

Aaron Campbell.

A recent law change, which is

set to come into force in 2020,

will mean traders who ignore

the stickers will be fined up to

$10,000 and the company which

they represent may be liable for

up to $30,000. But, until then,

traders are still expected to take

the stickers seriously.

Bishopdale Community Trust

co-ordinator Chris Coles said he

was ‘more than happy’ to work

with Mr Campbell to get the

word out.

“In our demographic, we

have a lot of older people and a

lot of young families and they

are two particular groups that

are vulnerable to door-to-door

salespeople,” said Mr Coles.

Mr Campbell started pushing

hard for the distribution of

stickers after he received a

number of requests for them

following a Facebook post,

mainly from young mothers

tired of the “intrusion” from

traders who were hard to say

no to. As well as helping with

the newsletters, Mr Campbell

has been dropping stickers and

information packs at libraries

and delivering them to houses in

other areas such as Bryndwr.

Since 2014, more than 550,000

NOR’WEST NEWS

stickers have been distributed to

consumers nationwide.

A Consumer NZ survey

showed 70 per cent of its

members disliked door-to-door

salespeople and wanted them

to stop. More than 60 per cent

labelled them “annoying” and

“intrusive.”

Concern over cycleway plans

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BUSINESSES AND residents

could be hit hard by a major

realignment of a street in

Riccarton to make way for a

cycleway.

The removal of on-street carparking,

cul-de-sacs, intersection

changes and the shifting of

bus stops could be on the cards

for Elizabeth St as part of a $39

million cycleway.

The changes are part of the

city council’s proposed South

Express Major Cycle Route

which will run from Templeton

through to the central city.

The route will travel through

Hornby, Hei Hei, Sockburn, Upper

Riccarton and Riccarton.

The potential changes have

sparked concerns for those in

the area.

The city council is calling for

public feedback on the proposal,

which is the next stage in the

$252 million major cycleway

programme.

Tony Pearson, owner of

Hamilton Motors (1995), which

is located on Elizabeth St near

Matipo St, said the proposed

loss of car parks is going to affect

his business.

“It will affect my income, it

might affect my employment

. . . there are only three of us

concerned over the proposed changes to Elizabeth St to make

way for the South Express Major Cycle Route. ​

now. Realistically it could go

down to two,” he said.

On-street parking spaces are

due to be reduced at the Matipo

St intersection along with shortterm

parking and loading zones

installed.

Mr Pearson said he can fit

eight cars onto the property and

a further six cars in the work

shop.

“That is not enough. We are

turning around more cars than

that. We need the accessibility

of putting cars on the road,” he

said.

Division St dairy owner Rae

Wang is also worried she will

lose business due to the changes.

“We think it is a waste of our

taxpayer money. It is not necessary

and not many people will

use it,” she said.

But city council planning

and delivery transport manager

Lynette Ellis said the anticipated

cycle volumes using the Riccarton

section of the cycleway is

1900 per day.

A Riccarton Community

Church spokesman said it is

still gathering information but

it does have concerns about the

likely impact of the changes.

Nearly 1000 people use the

church’s facilities throughout

the week for services, playgroups,

craft groups and its fruit

and vege co-op.

It averages about 370 people

for its weekly Sunday services.

Central Riccarton Residents’

Association acting chairwoman

Joscelyne Silcock said it is positive

for residents to be able to

come out of their door and go

onto a cycleway.

But she said she hasn’t decided

if she is for or against the cycleway

due to car parking being

a problem in the area.

“I can see cycleways being a

positive but then I am thinking

of all this money and there are

still parts of the city that really

haven’t had their fair share since

the earthquakes,” Mrs Silcock

said.

The CRRA will be making a

submission on the issue.​

HUNDREDS OF ice skaters have

the child health research charity.

The money will go towards

The event saw a record number

of customers visit the ice rink

Cure Kids chief executive

Frances Benge said the generosity

of the Alpine Ice team was

overwhelming.

“To think Alpine Ice donated

their entire day’s takings to Cure

Kids . . . is just so heart-warming.

The money they raised will help

health research we are supporting

to find preventative strategies,

treatments and, one day, cures

our children need, “ he said.

Harewood – Mr Ferguson

will take on the 14km event in

the City2Surf. It will be his first

time doing the event and he

admits he’s a “first-time runner,”

opting to keep fit

through rugby

and other sport.

The event will

help him prepare

for more running

later in the year

James

Ferguson

when he takes on

the Buller Gorge

half marathon

and the Saint Clair Vineyard

half marathon in Blenheim.

He is enjoying his training –

somewhat. “It’s a fair distance

the 14km, but I’ve got to get fit

somehow.” Before and after work

a couple of times a week, Mr

Ferguson has been challenging

himself to run distances

between 10km and 14km. He

will accompanied by a group of

friends who will also run in the

event next month.

Pauline De Wit, 66 – Mrs

De Wit isn’t keen to slow down

anytime soon. Previously, she

has run the 6km event in the

City2Surf but next month she

decided to “push the boat out”

and do the 14km

run. “I felt I could

have gone further

so I am keen to

try the 14km.

I have seen the

wonderful sense

Pauline

De Wit

of achievement

gained from an

event such as

this and wanted

to be part of it . . . I am getting

older and I want to achieve

something like this before age

takes me over.” Mrs De Wit has

been training with her friend Jill,

who she has done the event with

before. The pair enjoy after-work

walks around the Burwood

Wetlands. “The Wetlands takes

approximately 40 minutes, plus

walks at the weekend along the

Heathcote River. Also due to the

hot weather I have been enjoying

swimming at Corsair Bay,

Magazine Bay and at Sumner.”

TRAINING: Meg Longley

and Josh Stevenson will

attend a debate training

programme this month.

Developing top high

school debaters

• By Jess Gibson

TWO YEAR 13 debaters from

the north-west have been

selected for a South Island

development programme this

month.

Belfast’s Meg Longley and Josh

Stevenson of Burnside have been

selected to attend two weekend

training camps, along with another

Christchurch student and

three from Otago.

After the programme Meg,

who attends St Andrew’s College,

and Josh, who goes to Christ’s

College, will go head-to-head for

their schools in the regional debating

competition at Canterbury

University next month.

They were chosen by the

Canterbury Schools’ Debating

Council after a selection process

which monitored their abilities

throughout past competitions

Greater Christchurch National

MPs enjoyed getting out on

Monday and reconnecting with

the people who work so hard for

our region. We met with a range

of organisations from Canterbury

Police to Regenerate Christchurch

to ChristchurchNZ. As I often say, it’s

only when MPs are working on the

ground that we can see the impact

larger issues have on people’s

daily lives and it’s important to stay

connected.

Waitangi Day brought our

communities together in the spirit

that has made New Zealand the

envy of other countries. The traits

we value as New Zealanders, such

as our distinctive national identity

and respect for diversity, hold as true

today. I’ve begun my own Te Reo

Maori journey and enjoyed a greater

understanding this year of our Maori

tikanga. I encourage you on your

own Te Reo journey.

Constituents looking to purchase

their first home are losing confidence

they will be getting the keys soon

through Government’s KiwiBuild

and debates. Meg and Josh both

discovered a passion for debating

in year 9 and have competed

against each in several different

competitions.

They will work together for the

first time at the development programme,

going over a range of

articles about different political

issues and topics with coaches to

develop their skills.

“It’s important to be aware of

issues so that when we can vote

we know what’s going on,” said

Meg.

Josh said he enjoys debating

social issues that challenge him

and make him think. Both are

looking at their options for

university next year. Meg said she

wants to study law at either Otago

or Canterbury university, and

Josh has his sights set on Victoria

University.

SPORTS

initiative following the Housing

Minister’s admission they will be

going back to the drawing board on

this one.

This comes after Government

spectacularly missed its first-year

target to have 1,000 homes built

by July. First we saw that number

downgraded to 300 – and now

interim targets have been scrapped

altogether. So far, only 47 homes

have been built – amid discouraging

reports of buyers pulling out and

the homes being sold on the open

market instead of going back in the

ballot. National has always said

the way to build more houses is to

release more land and speed up the

consent process, and we proved

this after the earthquakes. Added to

this was our KiwiSaver HomeStart

scheme, which allowed people to

withdraw from their Kiwisaver funds

and gifted them an up to $10,000

grant towards their deposit. The

results? Between April 2016 and

March 2017, 315 HomeStart grants

were approved just in Waimakariri

electorate. The figures speak for

themselves.

ROWING, HOCKEY and

cycling have featured in the

achievements of talented Rangi

Ruru sportswomen.

First XI hockey players

Brittany Wang and Anneka

Calder were invited to play

for an invitational team against

the Great Britain women’s

team.

Brittany scored a goal

in the penalty shoot-out

at the end of the game

However, Anneka wasn’t able

to play due to rowing

commitments.

Rangi Ruru director of sport

Mandy Anderson said it was

a real honour for both girls to be

asked to play.

“It was an extremely exciting

opportunity to play against the

current Olympic champions,”

she said.

Meanwhile cyclist Charlotte

Spurway picked up the

Canterbury track cycling record

for the under-17 2km individual

pursuit.

Island rowing club champs at

Fresh produce a drawcard

at vegeland has been the introduction of topquality

ITF title for up-and-coming

Bishopdale tennis player

• By Gordon Findlater

Tuesday February 12 2019

PROMISING YOUNG gun

Reece Falck has won his first

junior International Tennis

Federation title.

The Bishopdale men’s

premier player teamed up with

Australian partner Cooper

White to win the doubles title

at the Tennis Canterbury ITF

competition.

Falck, 16, and White didn’t

drop a set on their way to the

final at Wilding Park, which

they took out 6-4, 6-4 against

the unseeded Australian pair of

Enzo Aguiard and Haru Sonton.

The No 3 seeded pair had a

bye in the first round before

defeating Pedro Papangelis and

Chris Zhang 6-3, 7-6 in the

second round. They accounted

for Japanese duo Rui Katogi and

Gaku Moriya 6-2, 7-6 in the

third round.

They then swept aside 10th

seed pair, Ayato Arakaki

from Japan and Junyi Tang

from Australia, 6-2, 6-2 in the

quarter-final. In the semi-final,

they met Japanese No 1 seeded

pair Taiyo Hirano and Ryoma

Matsushita 6-2, 6-3.

The 45 junior ITF ranking

points Falck received for the

doubles victory is his biggest

haul from an event to date and

moved him to a career high

world OPTION junior ONE ranking of 584.

TALENTED: Reece Falck won his first junior ITF title in the

doubles at Wilding Park. (Below) – Abby Mason gained her

first ITF ranking points after two wins in the singles.

Falck also competed in the

singles at Wilding Park, but was

There was also success at the

tournament for 15-year-old

Elmwood player Abby Mason

who picked up her first ITF

points after collecting two wins

in the singles.

Abby defeated 16th seed

Amy Stevens from Australia

in the first round 7-6, 6-4. She

then beat China’s Zijun Jiang

5-7, 6-2, 6-3 before falling to

17-year-old Holly Stewart from

Auckland 6-3, 2-6, 1-6 in the

round of 16.

Mr Drury said he has

watched David’s skills progress

throughout high school.

“David’s a very good player,

he’s very tough and abrasive,”

said Mr Drury.

“One of our

contacts will

sit down with David

and his father to

discuss things and see

whether it could be

a possibility for next

year,” said Mr Drury.

This will be David’s

second year playing

at the World Schools

Festival.

The festival at

Stellenbosch in the Western

Cape province will host 10 of

the top rugby playing schools

from South Africa and 10 of the

best school teams from around

the world.

David said the trip will be

to know the team and really

He said his love for rugby

started 10 years ago when he

began playing for the Merivale

Papanui as a seven-year-old.

He said his dedication

to the sport is fuelled

by his “camaraderie

with the boys” and

an interest in contact

sports.

“I’ve always found

it a hobby, it’s just

something I really like

doing,” said David.

David and his team

have held raffles, a race

night, a spud sale and

a presentation night with Steve

Hansen, which raised about

$45,000.

David also received a $350

Gold Real Estate Group Ltd.

Let’s enjoy 2019!

and be a little more

green and mindful

Happy 2019. I’ve learnt that most people fit into

two camps when it comes to acknowledging a

New Year and the concept of setting New Years

resolutions. They either embrace them and jump

in with the zeal of someone slightly demented(

I’m probably in that camp) or they sideline the

opportunity, comfortable in the knowledge that the

year will be what it will be and that no amount of

forced change,good intent or actions can be carried

out for 12 whole months on a wish alone.

In fact an American survey conducted in 2018

found that up to 32% of people don’t set any

form of resolution at all seeing little value in

the process and no likelihood of an outcome.

I’ve never been able to see things through

the lens of relax, breathe then wait and see

but I’m aware that for some individuals that

is a positive choice, however in business this

could see you falter. Things change, markets

move either up or down, client expectations

grow, technology progresses forward and

expectations get bigger year on year.

A new year gives you the chance to really take

stock, to review where you’ve been, I always

do this with someone I trust implicitly, and

then work out where you want to go.

You can consider the challenges, the game

changes, the small wins and the larger

victories. They will all be there and each of

“Carry out a random

act of kindness, with no

expectation of reward, safe

in the knowledge that one

day someone might

do the same for you”

PRINCESS DIANA

these will provide great insights as to what

comes next. That’s where the resolutions come in

or they do for me. Statistically the most common

resolutions involve : weight loss ( been there)

and let’s face it who hasn’t, eat healthier (another

tick)exercise, read more, make more, save more

it’s always something more. Bill Gates once said “

most people overestimate what they can do in a

year and underestimate what they can do in ten”.

This year personally and in business I’m mindful

of the word and nature of less.

As a company it’s got us focused on some of the

finer aspects of less.

Less paper, less waste, less stress, more

community involvement, and more mindfulness.

I’m looking forward to it and I’m heartened by the

fact all of us are aware of the need to be kinder

to ourselves, our community and our planet. So

those are some of my resolutions but I couldn’t

go into 2019 with out some of the old favourites

(which I’ll keep to myself )but I will finally give

up on backing a trailer or worse the boat!! No

amount of intention will change the fact that

I’m terrible!

Whatever school you subscribe to all the best for

2019, it will be no surprise that the year will be

what ever You expect it to be.

KIDSTUFF

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School

located within the heart of the city

Our play based learning

approach supports your child

as they begin their exciting

journey as a lifelong learner.

Play, laughter and learning are essential

ingredients for a successful Pre-School

education. The crucial early years need to

be nurtured, shaped and cherished as your

child takes their first steps in education.

Cathedral Grammar Pre-School proudly

teaches the children of tomorrow, today.

At Cathedral Grammar Pre-School your

whole family is welcomed into the wider

embrace of the Grammar community

including whole school fun and functions,

services and support as well as smooth

transition to the Junior School and links to

the Prep School.

In Cathedral Grammar’s purpose built

Pre-School, taught by qualified teachers,

your child will discover by curiosity,

investigation and exploration. Our low

child/teacher ratios, ensure your child’s

quality individual and group learning.

Research states that play may be the

single most important things that humans

do. “Our play based learning approach

supports your child as they begin their

exciting journey as a lifelong learner” says

Principal Scott Thelning.

Your child will develop essential

foundations in literacy and numeracy. He

or she will enjoy the benefits of specialised

facilities, subjects and staff including Art,

Physical Education, Yoga and Chapel.

When children feel good about

themselves and their abilities, they are able

to take flight and explore, discover, take

risks and play, laugh and learn effectively

and successfully. “Self-esteem is at the core

of this development process” Thelning

says.

Being an inner city Pre-School gives

you a wonderfully easy opportunity to

engage in your child’s learning if you are

working in the CBD. Every opportunity

is taken to utilise our central city location

to extend our ‘campus’ from the Botanic

Gardens to the Canterbury Museum,

The Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o

Waiwhetu to the Christchurch Transitional

Cathedral, from Tūranga (Christchurch

central library) to the emergency services.

By now, landlords, property managers

and most tenants will be aware of the

changes to the Residential Tenancy Act

concerning home insulation, requiring all

rental properties to have adequate ceiling

and under floor insulation installed, where

practicable, by 30 June 2019.

However, many landlords and property

managers may not be aware they could be

liable for a $4,000 fine (per non-compliant

property), payable to the tenants, if their

investment properties do not meet the

standard in time. With an estimated 125,000

rental properties still requiring better

insulation, these owners and property

managers are being urged to take action now

to avoid the impending rush.

Local long-established insulation specialists

EnergySmart are a selected service

provider for the government’s EECA (Energy

Efficiency and Conservation Authority)

insulation programme, and currently offer

both landlords and homeowners great

savings to better insulate their properties.

The company offers free property

assessments with an insulation Compliance

Certificate for the property if the existing

insulation already complies. If insulation

is required, they provide a Compliance

Report and quote to complete the work.

Extended home energy assessments are

also available, covering heat pumps and LED

lights if required.

EnergySmart are one of the largest

manufacturers and installers of insulation

products in New Zealand and supply a

range of home solutions including their

own insulation brands Terra Lana wool and

PolyKing polyester, as well as supplying Pink

Batts fibreglass insulation. All carry a 50

year warranty.

Their installers are fully trained, clean

and tidy, and their work is audited both

internally as well as by the government, so

you are assured of the highest standard of

workmanship.

EnergySmart has easy payment options

including no deposit and 36 months

interest free, meaning you can insulate your

property from only $12 per week. Landlords

can insulate now, take advantage of current

While insulation in rental properties is now

a legal requirement for landlords, they will

also have the satisfaction of knowing their

tenants are living in a warmer healthier, more

energy-efficient home, and consequently

are more likely to stay.

To enquire about a free property

assessment and insulation options,

contact EnergySmart.
