$1m upgrade planned 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

Sue

Chamberlain

from Middleton

Rd to left turns

in and out only,

as well as 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.

GOOD NEWS for motorists on the front

page 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.

Further fire worries at Hornby

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

HORNBY IS in extreme danger

of fire.

That is the view of resident

Ross Houliston who is calling

for action to be taken over the

“extremely high fire risk” existing

at Denton and Kyle Parks.

His concerns stem from the

city council dumping “excess”

bark behind Denton Oval

which has begun to stockpile

under the trees.

About 30 tonnes of tree

mulch is piled next to a railway

line which runs between Denton

Park and Kyle Park.

“If sparks got into that from a

train it could go up. It could set

the trees on fire around the oval

and could spread anywhere,”

Mr Houliston said.

But city council community

parks manager Al Hardy said

the bark will be used as mulch

for the gardens and its removal

from Denton Park will begin in

Autumn.

Mr Houliston aired his concerns

to the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

last week.

He has also raised concerns

over the lack of maintenance

where the asbestos fencing is

located at Kyle Park.

“City council staff have

recently cut down some of the

Last week a total fire ban was

Fire investigator Wayne

Hamilton said he could not

comment on the issue without

seeing it for himself.

But he said in terms of the

bark, the fire hazard depends

on how it is stored.

“I think the city council are

reasonably aware of how they

need to store their products,”

Mr Hamilton said.

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

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.

Visit our website for more

information on our staff.

Watch this space for more

developments on our

building project and our

awesome expanding team

of vets and nurses.

Welcome to Richard Lucy

Resident’s group

‘a bunch of

petrol heads’

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE HEADS of two

resident’s associations are

at loggerheads over how

noisy Ruapuna Speedway

is.

Templeton Residents’

Association chairman

Garry Kilday and Yaldhurst

Rural Residents’

Association chairwoman

Sara Harnett-Kikstra have

disagreed over whether

there are still noise issues

at the motorsport track.

Mr Kilday said there

have not been recent problems

between the Templeton

residents and Ruapuna

– the issue lies with Ms

Harnett-Kikstra.

“We have never had

a complaint from the

Templeton community in

ages . . . other than her asking

questions there have

been no other complaints

at all,” he said.

But Ms Harnett-Kikstra

has hit back, calling the

residents’ association a

“bunch of petrol heads.”

She said “ironically” they

are concerned about the

noise from the proposed

Fulton Hogan Quarry.

Ms Harnett-Kikstra

said she is about the

same distance to the

Fulton Hogan Quarries

Canterbury on Pound Rd

to Ruapuna.

“I can assure them it

is nothing compared to

motorsport,” she said.

Mr Kilday responded

calling Ms Harnett-Kikstra

a “whinger” and said the

association is not a bunch

of petrol heads.

Garry Kilday

“I am the only one that

goes (to Ruapuna) so

how can it be a bunch?” he

said.

Mr Kilday said he will

not be laying a complaint

about the noise from the

proposed Fulton Hogan

Quarry.

Templeton residents

have been at war with

Ruapuna for years with

the issue flaring up in 2013

when Ms Harnett-Kikstra

broke down in tears and

told the city council her

children could not sleep.

But Ruapuna

Community Liaison

Committee chairman

Laurie McCallum believes

“peace has broken out” at

Templeton.

“We need to work as

hard at the peace as we

did at the war and that is

what we are trying to do at

Templeton,” he said.

Eleven complaints were

made in 2017 – with eight

from Templeton, two from

Yaldhurst and one with no

location details.

Last year, five complaints

Sara Harnett-Kikstra

were made from Templeton.

Two noise complaints

were made on January 19

when Ruapuna Speedway

contracted out its burnout

pad to the New Zealand

Burnout Championship for

its Southern SmokeFest.

The city council found

the noise limits were not

breached.

Mr McCallum said in

a report to the board the

committee’s agendas may

seem relatively light but

this is due to the high level

of compliance from the

speedway.

But Ms Harnett-Kikstra

said while noise at Ruapuna

has got better, it had

no option after the noise

issues went to the Environment

Court.

Restrictions were placed

on Ruapuna in 2016.

Mr Kilday, who

represents the township

on the committee,

said Ruapuna is “very

proactive” about making

sure no noise limits are

breached.

POTENTIAL: Mark Peters is considering running for the city council or

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board in October’s local body elections.

Denton Park saviour

may run for council

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

A KEY player in the

successful campaign

to save Denton Park is

“seriously considering”

throwing his hat in the

ring for October’s local

body elections.

Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association

member Mark Peters may

put his name forward for

a seat on the city council

or the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board.

“The main reason I am

seriously considering it

is because Hornby needs

to have some good strong

representation to stand

up for our community

and really get it back on

the map,” the former

chairman of Save Denton

Park said.

Mr Peters has been

considering running since

the saga to save Denton

Park from the proposed

Hornby mega-facility

concluded. “Forming the

residents’ association on

the back end of that has

been fantastic – why not

carry on representing the

community? Hornby has

been neglected for too

long,” he said.

Last year the residents’

association, Denton Park

users and members of the

community welcomed

the decision to build the

Hornby mega-facility at

Kyle Park.

Mr Peters said a key

focus for the area is to

ensure the facility, which

will include a library, pool

and customer service

centre, is completed as

soon as possible.

He wants to try and

ensure there are no undue

delays and funding for

the centre is not “shortchanged.”

“I remember when I

moved to Hornby. It would

have been about 2006,

they had just closed the

Sockburn Pool. My kids

have grown up in Hornby

without a pool . . . we have

had a whole generation go

through now that had no

pool to learn to swim in,”

Mr Peters said.

The current Hornby

representatives are

Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board chairman Mike

Mora, member ​Natalie

Bryden and city councillor

Jimmy Chen. Mr Peters

would not say who he

thought he might replace.

Nominations for the city

council and community

boards open on Friday, July

19, and close on August 16.

The election will be held

by postal vote with voting

papers delivered from

September 20

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.

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.

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

EDUCATOR:

Middleton

Grange

School

principal

Richard

Vanderpyl

speaking at

the senior

prize-giving

last year.

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.

Tiny house 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.

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.

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

Dangerous intersection

to get upgrade

Helen

Broughton

•From page 1

Ilam and Upper Riccarton

Residents’ Association Sue

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

The intersection upgrades will

enable it to have facilities for

signals.

Help rid our water of chlorine

CONSERVE: The city council is asking people to only water

their gardens on alternate days between 9pm and 7am, when

it’s cooler.

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

WESTERN NEWS

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 un-chlorinated water to

supply the city over the winter

months, when we use about 50

per cent less water than we do

over summer.”

Making a new home for refugees

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.

very long time – you might just

Fire rages, homes at risk

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

The NZ Transport Agency

has planned to close the tunnel

between 11pm and 4am on February

The tunnel will open to traffic

Students finish second Coast to Coast

• By Gordon Findlater

ST THOMAS of Canterbury

College students Cormack

Terrant, Cameron Brewitt and

Joshua Grosvenor completed

the Coast to Coast for a second

consecutive year.

The trio finished the two-day

three-person team event in

15hr 14min and 34sec which

was good enough for ninth

in the men’s and third in the

schools category. The three year

13 students first completed the

event together 12 months ago.

“The loved the first one

clearly and decided to have a

second bite at it, it’s not an easy

thing to do,” said St Thomas’

teacher and team organiser Blair

Scadden.

The trio trained for the race in

their own time, juggling commitments

with other sports and

found sponsorship to cover entry

costs.

Brewitt began proceedings

at Kumara beach on Saturday

morning when he completed

a short 2.2km run before

Grosvenor completed a 55km

bike. The first day was completed

by Terrant who took on the

gruelling 33km mountain run.

Day two consisted of a 67km

kayak for Brewitt before Grosvenor

completed the 70km to

the finish line on New Brighton

beach.

After becoming the first St

Thomas’ student to enter the

team event 12 months ago, it’s

now hoped three students will

fly the flag for the school again

in 2010.

“The boys stood up and made

Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula.

Fakaalofa atu. Namaste. Kumusta. Haere mai haere mai ki

Te Kura Huruhuru Ao o Horomaka. Warm greetings to the

Hornby High School community.

The 2019 school year has started off with a roar and a bang.

Work is proceeding almost on schedule with the construction

of our three kahui, our general learning spaces that

constitute Stage 2 of our school rebuild. We expect to be

able to begin shifting into these new spaces in the week of

August 26.

Just landed in my email inbox this week is the achievement

data for our Year 7 to 10 children in writing, reading, and

maths over the past three years. The writing results are

astounding – there really is no other word for them. You

can read more detail about these results on my blog here

https://whakataukihewakaekenoa.blogspot.com/2019/02/

true-liberation-for-our-learners.html.

We are very proud of the amazing work our staff do, and

what our incredible tamariki are achieving.

Another significant piece of work that we began in 2018 is a

strategic review of sport at Hornby High School. We see so

much talent going undeveloped, and the Board decided that

we needed to take a strategic look at what we are doing,

how we can do it better, and what resourcing is necessary

for that to happen. Survey results from students, community,

and staff, all told much the same story of the need to

feed talent, and we will.

Finally, my overriding message for everyone this year,

is that of kindness, of manaakitanga. Our wellbeing is

enhanced when we give kindness; kindness has an almost

magical property that the more we give away the more

we receive. So by giving it away we are richer, not poorer.

This enhanced wellbeing is central to establishing cultural

identity for each of us, to improved achievement, to sporting

success, to a better more fulfilling life. That is true for

everyone regardless of age.

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

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

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 apartments 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.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

“You can just about guarant e

it . . because we [the community

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

Mr Mora said the community
