Midges still

plaguing

Bromley

in spite

of trapping

success

• By Matt Slaughter

“NOTHING IS working and we

have had enough after 11 years.”

This was the response from

Shortland St resident Janet Profit

to a city council study, which

found midge numbers around the

Bromley wastewater treatment

plant’s oxidation ponds have

decreased by 30 per cent.

The study credited the drop

to 30 midge traps which the city

council placed around the six

ponds early last year as part of

a $300,000 project to reduce the

midge problem.

However, Mrs Profit said the

midges are still everywhere on

her property next to the ponds.

“I’ve got a white dog and I send

her outside for a piddle and she

comes back in covered in midges

. . . it’s simple things like wanting

to sweep the backyard or getting

the windows cleaned outside, I

can’t even do that.”

Mrs Profit has been back and

forth with the city council since

the problem started more than a

decade ago.

GOOD NEWS for motorists on page 7

today.

The Middleton, Ilam and Riccarton

Rd intersection – the city’s fourth most

dangerous junction – could become a

T intersection. It’s a proverbial of an intersection. Turning

right from Riccarton into Middleton and right from Ilam into

Riccarton can be frustrating.

So plans are afoot for a $1 million safety upgrade. It would

include restricting Riccarton Rd from Middleton Rd to left turns

in and out only, as well as narrowing the road to allow more

footpath space for pedestrians.

There are divided views on the changes as our article reveals,

but the bottom line is something has to be done, in my humble

view anyway.

More rubbish dumped at estuary

• By Louis Day

A WILD boar carcass and

broken lime scooter have

been found next to the Avon-

Heathcote Estuary as illegal

dumping continues.

Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai

Trust co-ordinator

Tanya Jenkins said

the group collects

up to 10 tonnes of

rubbish from the

estuary each year.

Andrew

Rutledge

“It is particularly

sad that people

can’t drive a few

metres to the landfill and dispose

of it there, but I guess it has a lot

to do with cost,” she said.

Mrs Jenkins said the pollution

from illegal dumping was having

a serious impact on wildlife in

the estuary area.

“A couple years back, we had

a dead hector’s dolphin turn up

in the estuary. We had a look

and it had a plastic bottle in its

blowhole.”

Fines under the Litter Act can

range from $100-$400. However,

under the Resource Management

Act, the cost of an infringement

is $500 for an individual or

$1000 for a company. The type of

infringement is determined by

the nature of the offence.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge encouraged

members of the public to report

illegal dumping.

“The public can assist us

by reporting any dumping

they see through Snap Send

Solve, our Call Centre, or

social media. If it’s related to

the waterways, the public can

also contact Environment

Canterbury’s Incident Response

Line. Recording any vehicle

details is always a great help to

investigators,” he said.

•To report illegal rubbish

dumping, phone the city

council on 941 8999 or ECan

on 0800 765 588.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

NEW CHANGES ON

THE HORIZON

What an exciting year 2019 is going to be for

the McMaster & Heap Family. A new veterinary

building, a specialist veterinarian joining the

ranks, more skilled nurses required and our

family size is fast shrinking with sons off to

pursue their dreams.

On the home front we have gone from a

family of 5 to a family of 3. Our eldest son

Connor will go into his

second year of Veterinary

training at Massey

University in Palmerston

North. Most of Connors

summer holidays have

been spent doing

practical work for his

vet degree. He spent 5

weeks on a Sheep and

Beef farm in Methven.

Connor really enjoyed all

aspects of farm life from

ploughing fields, to

vaccinating and drenching stock

to driving all the farm machinery. He gained

valuable skills in reading animal behaviours

and how to handle them and learning about

management practices. He is now spending

time at a racing stable in Templeton and

seeing some equine veterinary work. It would

be fair to say his horse handling skills are

sketchy but nothing 2 weeks in a busy racing

stables can’t fix.

Dylan our tennis man

Connor Heap - 2nd year Vet

student doing Beef and sheep

farm practical work

Our 18 year old son Dylan left in January to

pursue his tennis dream in the US, gaining

a scholarship to the university of Minnesota

in Minneapolis. Within 2 days of touching

down he was back on a plane with the

team to a training camp in Florida. He will

study business and finance while over there.

At present he’s trying to acclimatize to

temperatures that have reached -45 degrees!!

Luckily for us, our youngest 14 year old son

Isaac ,is still living with Ma and Pa. Not for

long though something tells me ,as this son

can’t wait to travel the world, meet new

people and study overseas.

On the vet front we are very excited

to welcome Richard Lucy into the

McMaster and Heap family. Richard

went through Massey with Steve a wee

while ago now (graduated in 1992)

and fairly early on pursued Radiology

and Ultrasonography as his areas of

interest. Richard passed his Veterinary

Open 7 days

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

Cardiology exams at the Royal Vet College in

London. On returning to NZL, Richard worked

in Auckland and Hamilton for several years

before retraining in human echocardiology

(ultrasound of the heart). He even did a stint

in human ultrasound working at Waikato

and Christchurch Public Hospitals. Richard

has since returned to his original vocation

and works solely performing

ultrasounds on the heart ,

musculoskeletal system and

abdomen of referral patients. He

will now see his South Island and

Christchurch referrals through

our practice, working Monday

through to Thursdays. Richard is

married to Linda and in his spare

time entertains his twin 3 year olds,

slaves away on his lifestyle block

and enjoys the rivers, mountains

and coasts that Canterbury and the

South Island has to offer. We are

thrilled to be able to offer Richards expert

skills and knowledge to our patients and

those that are referred to us.

So with the addition of Richard and our skilled

ultrasonographer Catherine, we will be able

to offer ultrasounds to patients Monday to

Friday.

We have just accepted a building tender to

get our exciting new build underway as soon

as possible. We are expanding quickly and

need more consulting rooms and a bigger

kenneling area as well as a state of the art

surgical suite. Works should start before the

end of the month and all going well, by the

end of August we will be enjoying loads

more space, a separate “cat only” waiting and

treatment space and loads more exciting

extras.

I apologize now for any disruptions and extra

building site noise but promise this that

the end result will be a great thing for our

patients.

We employed 4 fantastic new nurses last

year due to continued practice growth.

Olivia, Rachael, Danielle and Marysha have

all brought something new and special

into the team mix and its refreshing to have

enthusiastic, inspired and fun young nurses to

help us with the important work we do.

information on our staff.

Watch this space for more

developments on our

building project and our

Welcome to Richard Lucy

CONSERVE: The city council is asking people to only water their gardens on

alternate days between 9pm and 7am, when it’s cooler.

Help get rid of the

chlorine in our water

WITH FEBRUARY

traditionally the hottest

month of the year, the

city council is reminding

residents to keep doing

their bit to save water so

it can work to remove

chlorine from the city’s

water supply as soon as

possible.

The council is aiming

for the city’s drinking

water to be un-chlorinated

by May, which will mark

12 months since it rolled

out chlorine treatment in

response to advice from

the Canterbury medical

officer of health.

City council water supply

improvement programme

manager Helen Beaumont

said achieving the target

depends partly on people

continuing to use less

water so wells can be taken

offline and upgraded as

needed.

“We’re definitely not out

of the woods yet, and we

really need people to keep

watching their water use so

we can upgrade our wells

and continue to cut back

the chlorine across the

city,” Ms Beaumont said.

“We’re experiencing

much hotter days now,

with less rain in between,

so the temptation is to

leave the garden sprinklers

on for longer or to turn

them on more often.

“We have no issue with

people watering their

lawns or gardens, but we

do ask they use a handheld

hose or watering can,

which avoids any waste,

and only water on alternate

days between 9pm and

7am, when it’s cooler.”

Sprinklers and garden

irrigators are the biggest

users of household water,

but there are plenty of

other ways people can

help save, said Ms

Beaumont.

“Taking shorter showers,

doing one less laundry load

a week, and sweeping your

driveway instead of hosing

it are all ways people can

help save water. It may not

seem like much, but a lot of

people doing a little really

adds up.”

By May the city council

expects to have completed

temporary upgrades on 19

below-ground wells and

to have raised another 41

above ground, bringing

the total number of secure

wells to 98 out of 140.

“If we can upgrade

those wells as planned, we

should have enough unchlorinated

water to supply

the city over the winter

months, when we use

about 50 per cent less water

than we do over summer.”

Lifetime of community service ends

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

WELL-KNOWN Redcliffs

identity David Cox has died after

a long illness.

The 79-year-old gave a lifetime

of service to the community

including a stint as a city

councillor and Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board member.

He had Parkinson’s disease

for the last three-and-a-half

years. However, Mr Cox died

on February 7 after a battle with

cancer.

Throughout his life Mr Cox

was a patron of the Redcliffs

Library, as well as chairman of

the Music Centre of Christchurch

and member on the board of

the Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra.

His wife of 56 years,

Fiona, said Mr Cox he cared

library a month before he passed

away.

“He was living life pretty well

until just before Christmas. All

and we had the best day ever,” she

said.

Mr Cox leaves behind children

and grandchildren, Sonia and

Peter Caird, Andrew and Sarah

Cox, James, Simon and Michael

Caird, and Annabel and Claudia

Cox.

He was involved in the Sumner

Lifeboat Institution, the Youth

Heritage Education Trust, a

member of the Court Theatre

Trust and a committee member

for Bromley Kindergarten,

Christchurch East School and

Linwood College.

Mr Cox was also active in a

number of sports clubs including

Christchurch United, Ferrymead

Bays Football Club, Sumner

Cricket and Canterbury Sports

Foundation.

Ferrymead Bays wore black

armbands and held a minute’s

silence in his honour before their

game on Saturday.

City councillor Yani Johanson

worked with Mr Cox from 2001,

when he was first elected to the

board.

“He was a really hard-working

and dedicated servant to the

community. He was involved

with young sports people,

volunteer groups, the libraries.

In terms of his service to the

community, he was incredible.”

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said he was a

great adviser for board matters.

“We met on several occasions

at functions and he offered great

advice and support. David Cox

has provided excellent service

and support to Christchurch city

and to his community. This will

be his enduring legacy.’’

A celebration of Mr Cox’s life

was held on Friday.

Tiny house planned for residential complex

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A HALSWELL residential care

and rehabilitation service is

joining the tiny house movement

in a bid to address the city’s

housing shortage for people with

physical disabilities.

St John of God Halswell is

planning to build an accessible

small home to provide more

accommodation for its residents

looking to transition back into

independent living.

The service’s centre manager

Virginia Spoors said one of the

issues for the trust is when its

residents are ready to move

back into the community after

recovering from a stroke or

spinal injury, there isn’t suitable

housing available.

“We are over 100 per cent occupied.

It is really busy. There is

some urgency to find supportive

living,” she said.

INDEPENDENT LIVING: St John of God Halswell is joining the

tiny home movement.

About five people are currently

waiting to find suitable housing.

The tiny house will be designed

specifically to cater for

a person in a wheelchair with a

physical disability with a ramp to

the house, a wide doorway and

an accessible bathroom with a

wet area shower.

CAMERON BAILEY

It will also be single-storeyed

and have a digitally operated

ceiling hoist to allow a person to

move from one part of a house to

another.

Resident Josh Caldwell, 21, is

one of the potential candidates

who may take up residing in the

home.

His life changed dramatically

nearly three years ago when he

was diagnosed with transverse

myelitis, a rare auto-immune

disease which causes inflammation

in the spinal cord.

When he initially became sick,

he spent five days in a coma and

three weeks in Christchurch

Hospital’s intensive care unit

before he was transferred to

Burwood Hospital for five and a

half months.

He was discharged to St John

of God on August 9, 2016 and

has been there since.

Mr Caldwell has since started

working for the New Zealand

Spinal Trust to support people

with spinal cord injury.

He said options for people in

Christchurch are Laura Fergusson

Trust, St John of God or

retirement home.

“But someone my age . . . a

retirement home is not a really

good option,” he said.

Mr Caldwell said the tiny

home allows a good transition

back into independent living.

The cost to build the house is

estimated to be $80,000 and is

planned to be built by spring.

“We are hoping this is a model

that will be able to be expanded

or replicated,” Mrs Spoors said.

The tiny home will initially be

trialled on the St John of God

Halswell site where the resident

can still receive support from

staff while living in it.

A fundraiser will be held on

Sunday featuring jazz music

from Sam White’s Quartet to

raise money for the project.

•Jazz in the Garden will

be held at St John of God

Halswell at 26 Nash Rd on

Sunday from 5-7pm.

Testimonial

“Heather and I would like to convey to you and your personal assistants Samantha and Lisa,

our appreciation for your input and management for the marketing of the Waltham Street units.

Truly a class act – the photography and descriptions were superb, we were kept informed,

Longer hours

for Halswell pool

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HALSWELL residents calling

for the suburb’s summer pools

hours to be boosted will have

their wish granted.

The city council will trial

extending its opening hours at

the Te Hapua: Halswell Centre

Summer Pool.

It will be trialled on the basis

the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will allocate

funding from its 2019-20 Discretionary

Response Fund towards

operating costs.

Last week a petition of 431

signatures was presented by city

councillor Anne Galloway calling

for the pool hours to be open

for longer.

Cr Galloway said while the

hours have not been finalised

yet, the pool could potentially be

open from 7am-7pm.

Currently, the pool hours are

11.30am-7pm.

Cr Galloway said the board

will look at funding up to 50 per

cent of the operating costs.

“The total amount city council

have talked about in terms of

opening the extra hours is about

$35,000,” she said.

She said these details will be

discussed with the board and

city council staff before the next

season.

“We do not want this to have

an impact on the rates, that is

the crux of the matter,” Cr

Galloway said.

Principal swaps Middleton for Hong Kong

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WHEN RICHARD Vanderpyl

was first offered the opportunity

to become the head of a school in

Hong Kong, he turned the role

down.

Having spent 17 years at

Middleton Grange School, the

chance to lead Christian Alliance

International School in Butterfly

Valley “came out of the blue.”

The Middleton Grange

principal initially said the Upper

Riccarton school “had his

heart” and he had no reason or

incentive to leave.

But when he was approached

again a couple of weeks later by

the same recruitment company

asking him to reconsider, Mr

Vanderpyl decided to investigate

the role.

“I think for me as a Christian,

I felt this was the Lord’s calling

on my behalf. I felt the Lord was

really calling me to take up this

position,” he said.

Mr Vanderpyl, 55, will head to

Hong Kong on March 4 to start a

new life with his wife Linda.

“It was always going to be a

big change for me to do that and

I think as a Christian I just felt

really at peace,” he said.

The timing was right for a

range of reasons, he said. All four

of his children have grown up

and no longer depend on him.

“I have always thought about

it over the years – I would do

some sort of work at some stage

overseas,” he said.

EDUCATOR: Middleton Grange School principal Richard Vanderpyl speaking at the senior prizegiving

last year.

While Mr Vanderpyl has been

to Hong Kong about five times

to market Middleton Grange, his

understanding of Cantonese is

“extremely limited.”

But he said while it is

compulsory for students to learn

Mandarin, every other subject is

taught in English.

“(Christian Alliance

International School) is aimed at

the ex-pat and overseas market

. . . the teachers at the school are

predominantly from overseas,”

he said.

His role will involve overseeing

the implementation of the

newly-introduced education

programme, International

Baccalaureate, which allows

students entry to most

universities around the world.

Mr Vanderpyl has spent 33

years in the education sector

– starting out as a teacher at

Hornby High School in 1984.

He moved to Hamilton Boys’

High School in 1986 and taught

there for five years before he

became the assistant principal at

Cambridge High School.

Mr Vanderpyl has since

been an assistant principal

at Cashmere High, deputy

principal at Hillmorton High

and arrived at Middleton Grange

as a teacher in about 2001.

He has been the principal

for nine years and has a very

“strong connection” to

Middleton Grange which his

wife and four children all

previously attended.

Middleton Grange is New

Zealand’s largest evangelical

Christian school. It hopes to have

a new principal by the start of

term three.

Bromley midge problem: ‘Nothing is working’

•From page 1

Mrs Profit said the traps had

been relatively successful over

Christmas, but the midges had

returned to her property in huge

numbers.

“It’s absolutely atrocious

. . . it may have worked over

Christmas, but it is definitely not

working now.”

City council general manager

of city services David Adamson

said the 30 per cent reduction

in midge numbers has occurred

around the ponds themselves,

but “no monitoring of the midge

numbers is undertaken in the

surrounding areas or properties.”

Mrs Profit said the city

council’s current strategy is

costing too much considering the

results.

“They breed in the ponds but

they don’t stay there . . . they

may have 30 per cent less in the

ponds, but we haven’t got 30 per

cent less in the houses.”

She said placing salt around

the edge of the

ponds or reinserting

some sewage back

into them would

be better and

more cost-effective

options. However,

Mr Adamson said

the salt option had

been proven to be

“uneconomic” and

adding sewage had

the potential to cause an odour

and “a significant impact on the

Janet Profit

water quality of the final

effluent being discharged

out into Pegasus Bay.”

He said the current

range of the trapping

and monitoring

techniques being

used would “have a

cumulative influence

as they take effect in

coming years.”

The reduction in the

midge population achieved by

the techniques means they are

currently the best options, he

said. But Mrs Profit said she

was willing to “make midge

sandwiches and take them to the

council” to give it a taste of just

how bad the problem was on her

property.

She doesn’t hold out hope that

it will get better, in spite of years

of trying.

“I’m not just fighting a

losing battle, it’s been a losing

battle of 11 years. It’s longer than

a war.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Safety upgrade for dangerous intersection

• By Julia Evans and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

THE CITY’S fourth most

dangerous junction could

become a T intersection in a bid

to reduce the number of crashes.

Plans for the $1 million safety

upgrade at the Middleton, Ilam

and Riccarton Rd intersection

were revealed last week by the

city council.

Restricting

Riccarton Rd

from Middleton

Rd to left turns

in and out

only, as well as

Sue

Chamberlain

narrowing the

road to allow

more footpath

space for pedestrians has been

proposed.

It was ranked the city’s fourth

most dangerous, raking up 40

crashes with varying degree of

injury since 2011.

The intersection is known as

being difficult to navigate because

of the off-set alignment of

the three roads.

The left turn slip lanes from

Ilam Rd into Riccarton Rd

would also be removed.

The proposed changes have

received mixed views.

Residents’ Association Sue

SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS: Safety improvements are planned for the intersection of Ilam,

Middleton and Riccarton Rds.

Chamberlain said it is “crazy”

vehicles will not be able to travel

from Middleton Rd to Ilam Rd

or turn right.

She said there should be

green arrows for vehicles

looking to turn right onto

Riccarton Rd.

“They should have a green

arrow on those corners which

will fix the problem just nicely

without having to do anything

else”.

But Elite Physiotherapy, which

is located near the intersection,

owner Michelle North said it is

an “extremely dangerous” intersection

and while the changes

will be inconvenient for the business,

it will be better in the end.

Receptionist Rita Noetzel said

she will “cross her fingers” when

she turns right from Ilam Rd

onto Riccarton Rd.

“At first I thought: ‘Oh my

gosh am I doing something illegal

but it is a right turn lane . . .’ it

is just a really tricky one because

there is no kind of turning lane,”

she said.

Her views were backed by

Central Riccarton Residents’ Association

chairwoman Joscelyne

Silcock, who said she dreads

driving out of Middleton Rd to

turn right onto Riccarton Rd.

But Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said she was concerned there

might be an “overload” of projects

on Riccarton Rd.

She said there is an argument

the project would need to be

done in conjunction with the

NorWest Arc Major Cycle Route.

The major Riccarton Rd

roadworks are due to begin this

month and the city council is

currently out for public consultation

on the South Express Major

Cycle Route – which will run

through Riccarton.

The intersection upgrades will

enable it to have facilities for

the cycleway including crossing

signals.

Public consultation will

run until March 11. For more

information on the changes

Petition fails to save

Eastgate Kiwibank

• By Matt Slaughter

A BID to reopen Kiwibank’s

branch in the Eastgate Shopping

Centre has failed.

Port Hills MP Ruth Dyson

presented a petition to save

Kiwibank’s services in the

mall with more than 3000

signatures to Kiwibank investor

and government relations

manager Kevin Hastings on

January 29. In spite of the

number of signatures, Kiwibank

spokeswoman Kara Tait said its

decision was based on the shift

in how people are banking in the

modern age.

“Over 90 per cent of our

customers are now banking

online.” She understood that

adapting to this change could be

harder for the older generation,

but there are support services

available to help people with

online banking.

However, Woolston Community

Association chairwoman

Jackie Simons said expecting

people to change so quickly after

a lifetime of doing their banking

in person was unrealistic. “While

I understand that we should supposedly

all move with the times,

there are a whole lot of people in

that area that simply can’t.”

CLOSED: A bid to re-open Kiwibank in the Eastgate Shopping

Centre was unsuccessful.

Help former refugees feel at home

CHRISTCHURCH will

soon welcome its first former

refugees via the quota since the

earthquakes – and the New

Zealand Red Cross is getting

ready to help them settle.

Groups of about 20 former

refugees from Afghanistan and

Eritrea will arrive in the city

every eight weeks from March 1.

Christchurch’s Farahnaz

Khosravi, 47, is training to

become a refugee support

volunteer with the New Zealand

Red Cross and will work in a

small team to support a new

family transition into New

Zealand life. Ms Khosravi came

to Christchurch from Iran on

a skilled migrant visa with her

husband and children almost

five years ago.

She knows what it’s like to be

new to the country and felt it

was her duty to help other new

Kiwis feel at home.

“When I moved from Iran,

I had done all I could to

prepare from overseas – I

knew english, enrolled my

children in schools, rented

a house, I had even made an

appointment with the bank.

“Even with all that preparation

and information I had, it was

still challenging. I know it will

be much harder for refugees who

haven’t planned to be here, don’t

have knowledge of english or of

the country.”

Ms Khosravi said her family

was warmly welcomed by

Cantabrians and they wanted to

ensure other new arrivals have

the same experience.

Red Cross pathways to

settlement manager Jo Fasheun

said refugee support volunteers

will help new Kiwis settle into

their homes, find their way

around, meet their neighbours,

register with a doctor and

navigate public transport.

“All of that can be really

challenging – it’s about how we

can support them to make those

challenges easier and bringing

some humour into it. It’s about

learning from each other along

the way,” Ms Fasheun said.

Refugee support volunteers

have found the role to be a

“Many of our volunteers stay

connected with families for a

very long time – you might just

become part of the family.”

too late to get involved and

helping to get in touch through

Fire rages, homes at risk

Weeds beside

railway line

ACTION HAS been taken to

clean up the weeds next to the

The city council began clearing

away the overgrown grass on

Saturday to remove any potential

fire risk in the short term.

Greater Hornby Residents’ Association

for the site and it is long overdue.

He said hopefully KiwiRail

Installing fire

protection

system forces

tunnel closure

LYTTELTON TUNNEL will

be closed on three consecutive

nights from Sunday in order to

install a multi-million dollar fire

protection system.

The closures are required in

order to install and carry out

testing of a new $29 million fire

protection system in the tunnel.

The NZ Transport Agency

has planned to close the tunnel

between 11pm and 4am on February

24, 25 and 26.

The tunnel will open to traffic

for 10min on the hour each of

these nights. Outside of these

times, only emergency vehicle

access will be available.

NZTA senior project manager

Chris Collins said work on the

project will be completed in

April.

“Installing the new fire protection

system often involves

working in confined spaces.

Single and full tunnel traffic lane

closures are critical to successfully

completing this important

project. To minimise their

impact, they are timed for late at

night and in the early hours of

the morning when tunnel traffic

is at its lightest,” he said.

Complaints over pathway bottleneck

Pedestrians have been forced

to walk on the shore side of the

road due to the pathway on the

This section of the coastal

pathway has been a source of

Tech graduates in

ADVERTORIAL

demand from industry

Young technology graduates are being snapped

up by employers, with the rapidly growing New

Zealand ICT (information communications and

technology) industry hungry for skilled staff.

“There are lots of IT jobs, but not enough graduates

joining the marketplace,” says Gary Taylor, campus

manager of Vision College in Christchurch.

Vision College, a private training establishment with

campuses in Christchurch, Auckland, Pukekohe and

Hamilton, has seen huge demand from employers

for its graduating information technology students.

“In the future, there will be an even bigger shortfall,”

warns Taylor, who notes that IT industry occupations

are on Immigration New Zealand’s long-term skill

shortage list, reflecting the growth of the industry

and the rise in job vacancies. “The IT industry is

growing rapidly. We need to get more skilled

graduates ready to ride the wave.”

According to the latest annual TIN Report, the

revenue of the top 200 New Zealand technology

companies grew by 11 per cent to $11.1 billion in

2018. The New Zealand tech sector employs more

than 25,000 people locally and 50,000 globally, and

offers a significantly higher pay than the national

average.

Christchurch woman Jessica Costello, 20, recently

graduated from Vision College with a Level 5 NZ

Diploma in Web Development and Design and

a Level 6 NZ Diploma in Software Development.

The two-year programme covered a range of

subjects, including web design, coding languages,

programming skills and software engineering – as

well as an eight-week internship with local company

CORE Education – which led to a job offer.

Late last year Costello started as a junior web

designer with the company. “It’s a great industry

to be working in, and I can’t wait to see what the

future holds,” says Costello.

She attributes Vision College as being a huge part

of her success in gaining employment in the IT

industry. The small class sizes and supportive tutors

were both nurturing and engaging. “Our tutors built

a great rapport and connection with the students,

so they knew where we were at to ensure we were

all keeping up with the programme,” says Costello.

There was also a focus on practical learning and

writing code. “We were on the computers from the

first day, learning by doing, and really drilling down

into specialty areas,” says Costello. “I could see my

skillset progressing and developing every day.”

As well as learning technical skills, she had the

opportunity to do professional practice papers to

build up “soft skills” too – something employers are

increasingly looking for, notes Taylor.

“They’re wanting peopale that are technical skilled

but who can also be innovative, creative and solve

problems and can communicate well,” says Taylor.

He says that industry internships are a key part

of the course programme, giving students the

opportunity to apply their learnings to real world

situations – and these opportunities often lead to

employment.

Aaron Kitto, national IT manager at CORE

Education, and Costello’s new boss, agrees that the

industry is desperate for more skilled IT graduates,

particularly in areas such as software development.

He encourages students to find out more about

IT courses, as it is a career that offers flexibility and

growth.

“For me, IT is a skill that can exist in any industry like

human resources or marketing,” says Kitto. “The skills

of an IT person can be mobile between almost every

type of organisation from education to agriculture

to tourism. This means that as the world moves

towards less “job for life” roles and more “do what is

needed” roles, IT people are perfectly placed to take

advantage of this. We have contractors who set up

company servers in Taiwan while writing code for a

Canadian firm, all from a beach in Bali.”

For more information on getting started in IT, see

visioncollege.ac.nz or phone 0800 834 834. The

programme allows for flexible study and University

Entrance (UE) is not required to begin studying.

Upcoming intakes are scheduled to start

March 4, 2019.

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 & the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration & brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains & 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

& declining cognitive function. B12 is

essential for energy production, cell

health, regulation of mood & sleep cycles,

nerve health & repair, & prevention of

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular

risk factor that is known to cause damage

& 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 & other drugs further reduce

B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in

the form of Methylcobalamin sublingual

tablets that are dissolved in the mouth &

thru bypassing the digestive tract have

been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in

the body.

Grape Seeds Shown To Have

Remarkable Health Benefits!

According to researchers grape seeds may

hold the potential to treat & prevent many

devastating disorders. The seeds have been

found to contain many powerful antioxidant

such as resveratrol, catechins, epicatechins,

proanthocyanadins & anthocyanins as well as

other nutrients that have been shown to support

the natural healing process & even slow the

aging process.

Grape Seed Extract (GSE) has been shown to

reduce inflammation & pain, increase cellular

energy, protect protein structures & increase

collagen production. The powerful antioxidants

in GSE can tone & strengthen the blood vessels,

improve blood flow making it valuable for

circulatory disorders of all kinds, including

varicose veins, haemorrhoids, hardening of the

arteries & impaired blood flow to the brain. It

is excellent for most skin conditions because

of the increase of blood flow to the skin tissue

thru allowing more nutrients to the tissue cells

& better waste removal from the cells. As well as

this it supports collagen production. For these

reasons many people report the skin looks more

healthy, smoother & with better elasticity when

using GSE.

GSE offers a natural alternative for many

people with hypertension (High Blood

Pressure). Higher than normal blood pressure

puts more stress on organs & can lead to

atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) &

therefore increased risk of heart disease (The

heart has to work harder to supply blood

around the body & may become enlarged &

eventually fail) & strokes.

Recent analysis of 16 randomized studies on

people with elevated blood pressure found GSE

to significantly lower both systolic & diastolic

blood pressure but had no effect on people with

normal blood pressure. Animal studies have

shown GSE to improve heart function, reduce

damage caused by heart attacks & prevent the

formation of foam cells that play a role in the

formation of arterial plaque.

A growing number of studies show that GSE

has powerful anticancer properties in both the

prevention & treatment of many types of cancer.

Studies show arthritis of every type may be

greatly improved by GSE. GSE also helps protect

the body against damage caused by diabetes

while helping balance blood sugar levels.

Another area GSE is proving highly beneficial

is the brain. It has been shown to protect

brain cells while stimulating the formation of

healthy new brain cells. It may prove vital in the

treatment of brain disorders like Alzheimer’s &

Parkinson’s disease.

There are numerous studies on GSE that

show it can help support our good health &

prevent many degenerative diseases.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and

senior clients visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample

parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”
