discounts<br />

Mr Koia, 33, runs Mo Town<br />

Barbers out of his garage. He<br />

has won two national barber<br />

championships in the last two<br />

years, with his most recent title<br />

coming at The Battle For Barber<br />

City nationals in Dunedin.<br />

Mr Koia brought home the<br />

barber fade and hair and beard<br />

titles and finished second in the<br />

freehand art attack discipline.<br />

The results meant he took out<br />

Linwood rallies<br />

to help<br />

businesses<br />

the overall title. Armed with<br />

just a pair of scissors and a<br />

razor, his talent has allowed him<br />

to open his own barber shop in<br />

2017.<br />

Debate<br />

over<br />

name for<br />

hot water<br />

pools<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

CHRISTCHURCH Hot Pools or<br />

New Brighton Hot Pools?<br />

These are the early options<br />

that have been suggested for the<br />

name of the hot pools, set to be<br />

completed in New Brighton early<br />

next year.<br />

<strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong> spoke to key<br />

people to get their views on what<br />

it should be called.<br />

New Brighton Business<br />

and Landowners Association<br />

chairwoman Rebecca Tavete said<br />

Christchurch Hot Pools is the best<br />

option.<br />

Mrs Tavete said having<br />

Christchurch in the title will be<br />

more likely to draw people in<br />

from outside New Brighton.<br />

“Definitely talking about<br />

Christchurch will have a bigger<br />

reach,” she said.<br />

“It’s a celebration for<br />

Christchurch, really.<br />

“We’re in New Brighton, they<br />

are always going to have New<br />

Brighton attached to them, I just<br />

don’t know if it’s necessary that<br />

we need to call them that.”<br />

DEBATE OVER the name for the salt<br />

water pools is heating up – and so it should<br />

be (see page 1).<br />

Christchurch Hot Pools, New Brighton<br />

Hot Pools or maybe something else?<br />

David East and Rebecca Tavete are<br />

angling towards Christchurch. They say it will give the pools<br />

more marketing depth as an attraction for out-of-towners. And<br />

there is much merit in that.<br />

Says Tavete: “It’s a celebration for Christchurch. We’re in New<br />

Brighton, they are always going to have New Brighton attached<br />

to them.”<br />

Others don’t like it at all and say the pools should reflect New<br />

Brighton – and there are some who don’t want either.<br />

Put it out to the public to have a big say in the final decision.<br />

CDHB pushing clinics to offer discount<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

THE CANTERBURY District<br />

Health Board is driving a push<br />

to get four medical clinics to<br />

take part in a Government<br />

policy to offer low-cost health<br />

care.<br />

New Brighton Health<br />

Care, Travis Medical Centre,<br />

Marshlands<br />

Family Health<br />

Centre and<br />

Woodham Road<br />

Medical are the<br />

last clinics in<br />

the east to not<br />

Carolyn<br />

Gullery<br />

offer community<br />

services card<br />

discounts.<br />

From July 1, the clinics<br />

will get another chance to<br />

do so. However, Tāmaki<br />

Health, which owns New<br />

Brighton Health Care, won’t<br />

change its original decision<br />

to not offer community<br />

services card discounts at this<br />

stage.<br />

Said Tāmaki Health chief<br />

operating officer Steffan<br />

Crausaz: “There is no update or<br />

change from our earlier position<br />

that New Brighton Health Care<br />

has decided to remain outside<br />

of the new funding regime<br />

for community services cardholders.”<br />

Canterbury District Health<br />

Board executive director of<br />

planning, funding and decision<br />

support, Carolyn Gullery, said it<br />

was time New Brighton Health<br />

Care and the other remaining<br />

clinics offered the discount.<br />

Marshlands Family Health<br />

Care practice manager Anna<br />

Brown said its decision to<br />

not offer community services<br />

discounts was “constantly being<br />

reviewed.”<br />

Woodham Road Medical and<br />

Travis Medical Centre managers<br />

were not available for comment.<br />

Ms Gullery said the CDHB<br />

has been working with these<br />

clinics and others across<br />

HIGH<br />

COST: New<br />

Brighton<br />

Health<br />

Care is<br />

one of four<br />

medical<br />

centres<br />

in the<br />

east that<br />

doesn’t<br />

offer<br />

community<br />

services<br />

card<br />

discounts.<br />

Canterbury to explain the<br />

benefits of the low-cost scheme<br />

for general practices and their<br />

patients, but not all clinics saw it<br />

as a feasible option.<br />

“Some practices, particularly<br />

those already struggling to<br />

meet patient demand, have<br />

been concerned about how they<br />

would cope with more visits<br />

from people with a community<br />

services card.”<br />

Ms Gullery said the CDHB<br />

would provide financial support<br />

to soften the impact.<br />

“Practices offering low-cost<br />

care receive additional funding<br />

from the CDHB to compensate<br />

for the reduced income from<br />

patient fees. We’re very hopeful<br />

that some of the remaining<br />

practices will see their way clear<br />

to begin offering low-cost visits<br />

to people with a community<br />

services card at the next<br />

opportunity.”<br />

Currently, 100 Canterbury<br />

clinics have opted into the policy<br />

to provide the discounts.<br />

At clinics offering the<br />

discounted, it costs $18.50 or less<br />

per visit for adult community<br />

services card-holders and $12.50<br />

for children aged between 14<br />

and 17. This saves card-holders<br />

about $30 per visit.<br />

Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board deputy chairman Tim<br />

Sintes said Tāmaki Health’s<br />

stance is simply not good<br />

enough.<br />

“When I hear people can’t<br />

afford to go to the doctor’s<br />

and they need to go to the<br />

doctor’s, it’s shocking, absolutely<br />

shocking.”<br />

Eastcare Health, Linwood<br />

Medical, Parklands Medical,<br />

Piki Te Ora, QE II Medical,<br />

Queenspark Healthcare,<br />

Shirley Medical and Te<br />

Rawhiti Family Care make up<br />

the rest of the clinics in the<br />

east and all have opted into<br />

the Government’s low-cost<br />

health care policy since it was<br />

introduced.<br />

Successful barbershop<br />

run out of Aranui garage<br />

•From page 1<br />

Mr Koia said his young<br />

children Phoenix, 9, and<br />

Jeremiah, 2, and wife Nikkita are<br />

the driving forces behind his hard<br />

work and dedication to his craft.<br />

“I’ve got a mortgage to pay for,<br />

I work from home and it’s my<br />

own business. That in itself is the<br />

biggest motivator.”<br />

His work has also seen him<br />

give back to the community,<br />

most recently teaming up with<br />

My Fathers Barbers to raise<br />

$3000 for the mosque shooting<br />

victims and their families<br />

and providing free haircuts<br />

for Christchurch’s homeless<br />

population in the past.<br />

Mr Koia said he also gets a kick<br />

out of adding some style to the<br />

lives of community members in<br />

the east, where he has lived and<br />

worked for nine years.<br />

“I get guys from down the<br />

street and my neighbours. They<br />

love having a barber so close.<br />

They don’t have to go into the<br />

city or drive somewhere far away<br />

to get a good haircut, it’s right<br />

there.”<br />

The former furniture remover<br />

said his growing passion for his<br />

work means there is no way he<br />

would ever consider changing<br />

jobs again.<br />

CUT ABOVE: Luke Koia<br />

dominated The Battle For<br />

Barber City nationals, winning<br />

several individual awards and<br />

the overall title.<br />

“I’m just going to make this<br />

work and I’m making a career out<br />

of this thing no matter what.”<br />

With another child on the<br />

way, Mr Koia is determined to<br />

continue developing as a barber<br />

and plans to expand his business.<br />

“I’m just so hungry to keep<br />

getting better because there’s<br />

nothing else, I don’t have plans to<br />

do anything else. This is me until<br />

I’m done,” he said.<br />

•From page 1<br />

Bin Inn New Brighton owner<br />

Nikki Griffin said she didn’t<br />

support either name and wants<br />

the community to have a say on<br />

a completely different name.<br />

“It would be nice to have<br />

a consultation with the<br />

community, I think that both<br />

names sound boring.”<br />

“This is a legacy project and I<br />

don’t think any of<br />

those names suit a<br />

legacy project.”<br />

DCL chief<br />

executive Rob Hall<br />

said it is using<br />

Christchurch Hot<br />

Pools as a working<br />

title at this stage<br />

but it is open to<br />

the kind of public consultation<br />

Ms Griffin suggested.<br />

“That’s something we need<br />

to think through a bit more. At<br />

the moment, we’ve settled on<br />

Christchurch Hot Pools, but that<br />

will be undertaken over the next<br />

few months.”<br />

South New Brighton<br />

resident Soozie Bragg said<br />

there is only one option in her<br />

opinion.<br />

“It has to be New Brighton<br />

Hot Pools because, after all,<br />

that’s where it is.”<br />

“It’s New Brighton that’s been<br />

pushing for this for close to 50<br />

years.” She said giving the pools<br />

this name would be the best way<br />

to put New Brighton on the map<br />

again and encourage outsiders<br />

to visit.<br />

However, Coastal Ward<br />

city councillor David East<br />

agreed with Mrs Tavete, saying<br />

Christchurch Hot Pools would<br />

simply have more city-wide,<br />

national and international<br />

appeal.<br />

Champion Centre ‘lifesaver’ for family<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

• By Jess Gibson<br />

IN THE weeks and months<br />

after her son Blake was born, the<br />

Champion Centre at Burwood<br />

Hospital was a lifesaver for Susie<br />

Chisnall and her family.<br />

Five-year-old Blake Chisnall<br />

has Down’s syndrome and has<br />

been going to sessions at the<br />

centre since he was just a few<br />

weeks old. Staff encouraged and<br />

supported him as he learned to<br />

crawl, walk and talk.<br />

Now, Ms Chisnall, of St Albans,<br />

has given back to the centre.<br />

She raised $4890 at a high tea<br />

and charity auction event at the<br />

hairdressing and beauty salon<br />

she co-owns, Salon Parlour on<br />

Cranford St, St Albans.<br />

The Champion Centre is a<br />

not-for-profit organisation that<br />

provides early intervention services<br />

to infants and children with<br />

significant developmental delays<br />

and disabilities.<br />

THE NEXT generation of<br />

university graduates are being<br />

inspired at Bromley School.<br />

The school is taking part<br />

in the Children’s University<br />

programme, a joint project<br />

with Lincoln and Canterbury<br />

universities to start getting<br />

pupils thinking about their<br />

academic futures from an early<br />

age.<br />

Lincoln University Children’s<br />

University project manager<br />

Jennie Nicholson said 24<br />

pupils from Bromley School<br />

will engage in a range of extracurricular<br />

activities, including<br />

sports, on-campus experiences<br />

and trips to ​public learning<br />

destinations.<br />

Each pupil will document<br />

the activities and the different<br />

were some of the prizes which<br />

were auctioned off.<br />

Ms Chisnall said the staff at the<br />

centre, including occupational<br />

therapists, physiotherapists,<br />

locations they complete them at<br />

in a learning passport.<br />

The passports were handed<br />

out by Ms Nicholson at<br />

Bromley School on Thursday<br />

and will be completed by pupils<br />

over the next seven months.<br />

Once they have completed 30<br />

hours of activities outlined in<br />

the passports, the pupils will<br />

be invited to dress up in full<br />

cap and gown for a graduation<br />

ceremony at the town hall on<br />

November 20.<br />

Ms Nicholson said Bromley<br />

School, along with Te Pā<br />

o Rākaihautū, Ladbrooks<br />

and Prebbleton schools, will<br />

take part in the Children’s<br />

University programme.<br />

Bromley School junior team<br />

leader Lindi Newth said it is<br />

a huge opportunity for the<br />

social workers, and speech and<br />

language therapists are incredible.<br />

“At a time when you are really<br />

struggling to come to grips with<br />

school. “It’s a low decile school,<br />

a lot of our children don’t<br />

know that university exists,<br />

so we’re trying to make sure<br />

our children have as many<br />

opportunities as possible to<br />

succeed in learning.”<br />

Ms Nicholson said 15,000<br />

school pupils in Australia<br />

currently participate in the<br />

programme and it has been so<br />

successful there is a waiting list<br />

for schools which want to join.<br />

She hopes the programme<br />

will do great things for<br />

Bromley’s pupils.<br />

“The programme aims<br />

to raise aspirations for<br />

higher education, but more<br />

importantly, it helps to install a<br />

love of learning and show that<br />

learning is everywhere and it<br />

is fun.”<br />

SUPPORT:<br />

Susie Chisnall<br />

raised almost<br />

$5000 for the<br />

Champion<br />

Centre after<br />

it helped her<br />

and her son<br />

Blake (inset).<br />

all of the challenges you’re facing<br />

as a parent of a child with extra<br />

needs they are the people who<br />

give you information, support<br />

and just all around kindness and<br />

compassion,” she said.<br />

The Champion Centre opened<br />

in 1977 and is based on the belief<br />

that every child, regardless of<br />

physical, mental, or social capacity,<br />

has the right to be educated,<br />

to learn, grow, contribute, and to<br />

reach their individual potential.<br />

Play specialist Emma Chilvers<br />

has worked with Blake for two<br />

years and said he has been “delightful.”<br />

“[The donation] is overwhelming.<br />

What it says to us is that<br />

she appreciates what the centre<br />

stands for and the importance<br />

of early intervention,” said Mrs<br />

Chilvers.<br />

Grants and fundraising<br />

coordinator Karon Storr said<br />

that parents are “definitely<br />

the best ambassadors for the<br />

centre.”<br />

The Champion Centre has<br />

supported more than 2000<br />

families in Canterbury and is<br />

currently working with more<br />

than 165 children.<br />

However, less than 60 per cent<br />

of its services are funded through<br />

Government agencies.<br />

Proposal for new community hub in the east<br />

Linda Stewart<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

A PROPOSAL for a new community<br />

hub for residents in Burwood,<br />

Avondale and Dallington will be<br />

brought before the city council.<br />

The Coastal-Burwood<br />

Community Board will make this<br />

submission to the <strong>2019</strong>-2020 draft<br />

Annual Plan.<br />

Board member Linda Stewart<br />

said research carried out by social<br />

researcher Sarah Wylie and an initial<br />

feasibility study completed by Global<br />

Leisure Group highlighted the need<br />

for such a facility.<br />

She said the research revealed the<br />

massive loss of infrastructure that<br />

these three areas faced had negatively<br />

impacted mental health in the three<br />

areas.<br />

“We’ve got well-being issues and<br />

social isolation.”<br />

The board’s chairwoman, Kim<br />

Money, agreed.<br />

“Eight years down the track we’re<br />

just seeing far too much anxiety and<br />

depression and suicide,” she said.<br />

“These gathering spaces<br />

really help communities connect<br />

and just help with the belonging<br />

in a community . . . so it is essential.”<br />

Mrs Stewart said she wants a<br />

community hub to be built right in<br />

the middle of the three communities<br />

to bring them together and help<br />

address these issues.<br />

Mrs Stewart said she estimated the<br />

construction of a community hub<br />

would cost between $5 million and<br />

$6 million and the board is currently<br />

in discussions about the best way to<br />

fund this.<br />

Ms Money said the board hopes<br />

the project will be green-lighted<br />

as soon as possible, but realistically<br />

she is pushing for it to be included<br />

within the city council’s next Long<br />

Term Plan.<br />

HARCOURTS GOLD OFFICE MANAGER PARKLANDS AND NEW BRIGHTON<br />

ROBUST START TO<br />

THE NEW YEAR!<br />

With one of our busiest times of the year now upon us,<br />

our offices at Parklands and New Brighton have hit the<br />

ground running during the first quarter, working with a<br />

wide catalogue of available homes, in all price brackets<br />

right across the city. Good open home attendance, and<br />

online enquiry has produced positive activity, and the<br />

volume of listings coming into Harcourts throughout<br />

the city continues to indicate that we are still the most<br />

preferred company in Christchurch.<br />

It’s worth noting that the Reserve Bank’s reduced LVR<br />

restrictions came into effect from 1 January. This means<br />

that banks will now lend 20 per cent of their new loans<br />

to owner-occupiers who have a deposit of less than 20<br />

per cent of a purchase price – up from 15 per cent of new<br />

lending. The required minimum deposit for investors<br />

has now dropped to 30% from 35%. Subsequently,<br />

it’s foreseeable that these changes will bring a new<br />

batch of buyers into the housing market. In our local<br />

neighbourhood, it has also been pleasing to witness an<br />

increase in active first home buyers looking to get on<br />

the property ladder.<br />

Whilst I will always advocate an optimistic outlook,<br />

my message for those looking to sell, BE selective and<br />

BE sensible. Choose your sales consultant wisely and<br />

be sensible with price expectations if your home sits<br />

outside what we refer to as the market’s ‘sweet spots’,<br />

or there is an oversupply of available property in your<br />

neighbourhood.<br />

NEW DEVELOPMENTS CREATING<br />

OPPORTUNITES.<br />

It is no secret that the new developments in our eastern<br />

suburbs have sparked conversation and heightened<br />

interest in our local community over the past few years,<br />

and in particular, it’s been incredibly exciting to watch the<br />

final stages of the ‘two schools on one campus’ (Avonside<br />

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High Schools) take their form. Due<br />

to open the beginning of Term 2, this brand new, state<br />

of the art campus, is going to be a crucial asset for the<br />

east of Christchurch and will become a main contributor<br />

determining the real estate market locally.<br />

Speaking of schools, be sure to enter our online<br />

competition offering the opportunity to win movie tickets<br />

which may come in handy these upcoming <strong>April</strong> holidays.<br />

CHOOSE THE HARCOURTS GOLD<br />

TEAM FOR 'AS IS' SALES!<br />

With over 400 ‘As Is’ sales under our belt, and more in the<br />

pipeline, we are still frequently asked to sell damaged,<br />

and/or problematic, homes right across the city. We<br />

absolutely believe we have the most experience and<br />

know-how to get the job done, a tried and true marketing<br />

template, and an extensive online database of buyers<br />

ready to purchase.<br />

Our eastside offices in particular, have acted as a beacon<br />

real estate matters.<br />

active mentoring programme. Our eastside offices based<br />

at Parklands and New Brighton are very much community<br />

based, and our agents of varied experience, share the<br />

PEGASUS POST<br />

WITH MARY IN FAITH<br />

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA<br />

A NEW MARIAN COLLEGE FOR 2023<br />

MESSAGE FROM<br />

THE BOARD<br />

The Marian College Board is pleased<br />

to share the Bishop’s decision to<br />

relocate Marian College to north west<br />

Christchurch on a three hectare site.<br />

Our new College will neighbour St<br />

Joseph’s Primary School on land<br />

bordered by Vagues Road, Main North<br />

Road and Northcote Road, with the main<br />

entrance off Lydia Street.<br />

The new school is projected to cost in<br />

excess of $20 million and students are<br />

expected to start in February 2023.<br />

The Bishop said finding a new home for<br />

Marian College has always been one of<br />

his main priorities. The purchase of the<br />

former Foodstuffs warehouse property on<br />

Northcote Road has made this possible.<br />

He indicated scoping and design work<br />

will begin ready for when possession of<br />

the land takes place in <strong>April</strong> 2021.<br />

The news is exciting and very positive<br />

for Marian College and the changes are<br />

going to further strengthen and grow our<br />

Catholic community.<br />

Thank you to the Bishop on behalf of<br />

Marian College for his commitment to<br />

our future, and to the Catholic Diocese<br />

of Christchurch for its steady support<br />

over the years.<br />

The Catholic Bishop of Christchurch, Paul<br />

Martin and Marian College Principal Mary-<br />

Lou Davidson visiting Marian College’s<br />

new Papanui site.<br />

Thank you also to our school community<br />

for your loyalty and patience and to all<br />

the schools, businesses and communities<br />

who have supported Marian since the<br />

earthquakes. It means a lot to us.<br />

We look forward to the challenges the<br />

next four years bring us and to having<br />

closer working relationships with St<br />

Joseph’s School Papanui and our brother<br />

school St Bede’s College.<br />

Tātou ko Mere e whakapono ana<br />

With Mary in faith<br />

Jan Paterson<br />

Marian College Board of Trustees Chair<br />

SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED<br />

What will the new school look like?<br />

It is too early to say just yet. What we do know is that we intend to ensure the Catholic<br />

special character, values, heritage and story of Marian is incorporated and reflected in our<br />

new school’s grounds and buildings. While we are fortunate to be getting a new school –<br />

the heart of Marian College will remain the same.<br />

Our new Forde Block (Social Sciences and Careers), which opened at the beginning<br />

of this year, combines the best of traditional and open-plan classroom settings within a<br />

multi-functional and sound-proof learning environment. So far, the feedback from students<br />

and teachers has been positive, so it’s likely our new school will have similarly designed<br />

classrooms.<br />

Will there be opportunities for input into the new school?<br />

Yes. We will be engaging with our school community and gathering ideas in coming<br />

months.<br />

Why is it taking until 2023 to get a new school?<br />

The newly purchased site is currently tenanted and the lease expires in 2021. The Catholic<br />

Diocese of Christchurch will then take possession of the land. In the meantime, there will<br />

be valuable time for consultation, scoping and design work, before construction starts.<br />

Will travel to and from the new school be more difficult?<br />

Our new site is conveniently located on main arterial roads including QEII Drive and the<br />

ring road to Eastern and seaside suburbs, Main North Road through to North Canterbury<br />

as well as the Orbiter bus route. Connecting cycleways include the Papanui Parallel<br />

Cycleway, Northern Line Cycleway and QEII Shared Cycleway.<br />

By the time our new school is ready, the Christchurch Northern Corridor will be open. It is<br />

expected this road will significantly reduce traffic volumes on Main North Road – by up to<br />

50 per cent. It will also create an opportunity for the city council to make changes to Main<br />

North Road resulting in improved public transport journey times.<br />

Access to transport is an important part of our planning. We are confident that our families<br />

will have suitable transport options for students travelling from more than 30 of our feeder<br />

primary schools - families living in Central and East Christchurch, the seaside suburbs and<br />

North Canterbury.<br />

My daughter is currently a senior student at Marian – will she feel left out?<br />

A wonderful aspect of Marian College is how supportive and understanding our school<br />

community is through periods of change. We often say: “once a Marian girl, always a<br />

Marian girl”. Marian College will be making every effort to include all students in the<br />

shaping of our new school - regardless of whether they will be attending. We are asking<br />

past students and staff of Marian College and also our founding schools St Mary’s College<br />

(Christchurch) and McKillop College, to provide valuable input into what the new school<br />

will look like.<br />

Pupils design play area<br />

to revitalise red zone<br />

• By Matt Slaughter<br />

A NEW natural play area<br />

designed by Banks Avenue<br />

School pupils will be constructed<br />

by the end of term four.<br />

The development, which pupils<br />

have named Adventure Ave, will<br />

sit between Woodchester Ave<br />

and Tilia Lane at the Richmond<br />

end of the Avon River.<br />

The play area will include a<br />

number of features, which will<br />

allow users to run, jump, climb<br />

and use their imagination.<br />

Planning for Adventure<br />

Ave is in the final stage, with<br />

construction set to start after<br />

the pupils pitch their idea to<br />

neighbours in the area and a<br />

decision is made on how the<br />

project will be funded.<br />

The project is a collaboration<br />

between Banks Avenue School<br />

and the Avon-Ōtākaro Network<br />

as part of its Riverlution project<br />

to revitalise the red zone<br />

surrounding the Avon River.<br />

Avon-Ōtākaro Network<br />

Education adviser Sian Carvell<br />

said the pupils decided it should<br />

be as environmentally-friendly<br />

and safe as possible and blend<br />

into the natural environment.<br />

“Most people, when they think<br />

playground, they think swings<br />

and slides and towers . . . but this<br />

is a lot more innovative. As the<br />

kids said, they wanted it to be<br />

environmental, have huts, be fun<br />

with a mix of activities . . . have<br />

water, have no plastic, be reusable<br />

and have art in the design.”<br />

Ms Carvell said the pupils are<br />

been “very excited about being<br />

involved in the planning and<br />

decision-making around the project<br />

and having their ideas heard<br />

and taken seriously.”<br />

<strong>Pegasus</strong> <strong>Post</strong> reported last<br />

month that a number of Banks<br />

Avenue school pupils have shown<br />

signs of post-traumatic stress<br />

disorder as a result of the earthquakes.<br />

Ms Carvell said allowing the<br />

school’s pupils to contribute to<br />

the regeneration of the Avon<br />

River Corridor through this project<br />

would help them and others<br />

in the community recover.<br />

“It’s about reconnecting back<br />

to the land that caused a lot of<br />

trauma in their lives. It’s shown<br />

that that connection with nature<br />

is a really big aspect for healing<br />

and well-being, not just for kids,<br />

but for adults as well.”<br />

in its last stage, with construction<br />

SBHS students prepare for<br />

cultural exchange in Japan<br />

a cultural and educational<br />

component to it. Students will<br />

be involved in research of a<br />

particular theme, which in <strong>2019</strong><br />

is reducing man-made waste<br />

and pollution. The event will<br />

finish with students developing<br />

ideas from the different<br />

research they have done,” he<br />

said. “The students will then be<br />

expected to put in place a plan<br />

to implement this at their own<br />

school.”<br />

“The five boys involved<br />

from Shirley Boys are staying<br />

in Nagoya, a city of over<br />

two million people. They<br />

will have the opportunity<br />

to visit the former imperial<br />

capital of Japan, Kyoto, and<br />

do volunteering at Fuji Mae<br />

wetlands.”<br />

The other schools groups<br />

attending will be from<br />

Melbourne and China.<br />

Arawa girls dominate junior NZ squad<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

ARAWA CANOE Club kayakers<br />

will make up the entire New<br />

Zealand female junior squad at<br />

the world junior championships<br />

in Romania in August.<br />

Last week Canoe Racing New<br />

Zealand announced that Arawa<br />

members Olivia Brett, Pieta Luthi,<br />

Tilly Pritchard, Jess Nisbett<br />

and Cass Hetherington will<br />

make up the five-strong junior<br />

women’s squad.<br />

“We’re wrapped. It’s a culmination<br />

of a lot of hard work from<br />

these kids and their coach Paul<br />

Fidow,” said Arawa president<br />

Stuart Clark.<br />

“They’re training nine or more<br />

times a week with five or six of<br />

those being at six o’clock in the<br />

morning in the gym and on the<br />

river. The Avon River is not the<br />

most pleasant place to be at that<br />

time of the day sometimes.”<br />

Brett will compete in the K1<br />

200 and will team up with Luthi<br />

in the K2 500. Luthi, Pritchard,<br />

Lisbett and Hetherington will<br />

make up the K4 500. Pritchard<br />

is also being considered for the<br />

K1 500.<br />

In February the girls dominated<br />

the under-18 division at<br />

the national championships<br />

which helped Arawa claim the<br />

top club honours. Brett was the<br />

most dominant athlete at the<br />

championships winning five<br />

gold medals in the under-18 K1<br />

200, under-18 K1 500, under-18<br />

K2 200, under-18 K2 500 and<br />

INTERNATIONAL STAGE: Olivia Brett and Pieta Luthi will make up the New Zealand under-18 girls K2 boat at the junior world<br />

championships in Romania. Right – Arawa’s under-18 K4 women’s teams won both the K4 200 and 500 at nationals in February and<br />

will make up the New Zealand under-18 K4 squad. ​<br />

under-18 K4 500.<br />

The girls are currently<br />

preparing for the Asia Pacific<br />

Cup on Lake Karapiro in<br />

Cambridge in May which is a<br />

tri-series between NZ Australia<br />

and Japan. The regatta will be<br />

used as their last competitive<br />

SPORT<br />

racing before heading to<br />

Europe for the world junior<br />

championships.<br />

Ben Duffy has also been<br />

selected for the same event in<br />

Romania where he will be racing<br />

in the under-23 men’s K4. Ben is<br />

now based in Cambridge where<br />

he trains with the national men’s<br />

squad, but remains a staunch<br />

Cantabrian and member of the<br />

Arawa club.<br />

Arawa were also acknowledged<br />

for their accomplishments at<br />

national and international<br />

level by being finalist for the<br />

club of the year award at the<br />

recent Canterbury Sports<br />

Awards. •More sport, page 16<br />

DYNAMIC DUO: Maddy Thornton and Sally Wylaars (left) rowed to silver<br />

in the girls under-18 double sculls at the Maadi Cup. (Above) – Avonside’s<br />

under-18 novice coxed quadruple sculls crew took out silver.<br />

Avonside rower’s big break after Maadi Cup<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

A STRONG showing at the<br />

Maadi Cup regatta has seen<br />

Avonside Girls’ High School<br />

student Sally Wylaars named as<br />

a New Zealand junior trialist.<br />

Wylaars will head to the trial<br />

at Lake Karapiro, which takes<br />

place from Sunday to <strong>April</strong> 20.<br />

The aim of the junior trials<br />

is to select crews to represent<br />

New Zealand at the junior world<br />

rowing championships in Tokyo,<br />

Japan, from August 7-11.<br />

Her selection came after Maadi<br />

Cup, in which she won a silver<br />

medal in the girls under-18<br />

double sculls.<br />

Wylaars and Maddy<br />

Thornton were the quickest in<br />

their heat and quarter-final early<br />

in the regatta. They booked a<br />

spot in the A final by finishing<br />

second in their semi-final –<br />

6sec behind Tauranga Girls’<br />

College.<br />

In the final, Wylaars and<br />

Thornton were in contention<br />

for the win, but settled for a<br />

SPORT<br />

more than respectable second,<br />

finishing in 7min 27.51sec,<br />

behind the winners from St<br />

Peter’s School who won in 7min<br />

25.12sec. The bronze went to St<br />

Hilda’s Collegiate.<br />

Wylaars also narrowly missed<br />

out on making the A final in<br />

the girls under-18 single sculls.<br />

However, she won the B final in<br />

commanding fashion.<br />

Her time of 8min 9.05sec was<br />

more than 10sec ahead of her<br />

nearest rival and would have<br />

been good enough to finish fifth<br />

in the A final.<br />

Avonside Girls’ High also took<br />

silver in the girls under-18 novice<br />

coxed quadruple sculls.<br />

After winning their heat and<br />

quarter-final, Aria Johnston,<br />

Aaliyah Kerry, Stella Cook, Ash<br />

Fleming and coxswain Isabella<br />

Sherburd qualified for the final<br />

by finishing second in the semifinal.<br />

In the final they finished<br />

just over 2sec behind winners<br />

Mt Aspiring College in 7min<br />

40.05sec. Avonside Girls’ High<br />

were also represented in the A<br />

final of the girls under-15 coxed<br />

quadruple sculls.<br />

The crew of Aria Johnston,<br />

Stella Cook, Ash Fleming, Molly<br />

Edwards and coxswain Isabella<br />

Sherburd finished sixth in the<br />

final – 13sec behind winners<br />

Dunstan High School.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

New bid to fix potholes<br />

Action looms<br />

on Hawke St<br />

car park<br />

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stand down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffered damage<br />

in the February and June, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has b en a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes to own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

A CRACKDOWN on mobile<br />

traders acro s the districts could<br />

be l oming.<br />

However, the public has li tle<br />

interest in having input into the<br />

i sue.<br />

Only eight submi sions were<br />

received for a potential bylaw<br />

aimed at regulating commercial<br />

activities in public places.<br />

The district council wi l be<br />

holding a hearing for the Public<br />

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial<br />

Activities and Events in<br />

Public Places.<br />

A hearing i scheduled to be<br />

held on Thursday.<br />

The bylaw comes as an increasing<br />

number of mobile traders<br />

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,<br />

especia ly during the summer<br />

months.<br />

In the past year, the district<br />

council has received five inquiries<br />

about se ting up a mobile busine s<br />

on private or public land.<br />

A report said there are two<br />

str et operators in Darfield, a<br />

coff e cart is parked beside the<br />

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za<br />

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en<br />

September-May along with a Thai<br />

Pupils learn about role of war horses<br />

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils<br />

have taken a step back in time,<br />

s eing first hand what men and<br />

horses l oked like during war.<br />

The New Zealand Mounted<br />

Rifles Charitable Trust president<br />

Mark A pleton and member<br />

Mike Donaldson t ok their<br />

horses to the sch ol on Monday,<br />

in a bid to educate pupils on the<br />

sacrifice their ancestors made in<br />

World War 1 and World War 2.<br />

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson<br />

a rived a the sch ol dre sed<br />

in World War 1 uniforms while<br />

their horses Tommy and Kruze<br />

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated<br />

to the trust.<br />

The presentation is a prelude<br />

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve<br />

Management Commi t e’s<br />

upcoming Anzac Day service.<br />

As a tribute to those who<br />

served, members of the trust wi l<br />

ride horseback to the service.<br />

Mr A pleton said it was<br />

important children were<br />

educated on what soldiers<br />

wen through during World<br />

War 1 and World War 2.<br />

But he said the presentation<br />

didn’t go into t o much detail<br />

and was more of a “show and<br />

te l” to make them aware of what<br />

the soldiers l oked like.<br />

Children were shown the type<br />

of kits horses were required to<br />

wear in the war.<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the a l<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />

Mr Winder has b en a butcher<br />

since the age of 19.<br />

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-<br />

Ri carton Community Board<br />

has b en given the gr en ligh to<br />

o pose the pla ned qua ry near<br />

Templeton.<br />

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the<br />

board on Thursday it had the okay<br />

from the city council to make a<br />

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies<br />

for a resource consen to create a<br />

qua ry.<br />

Board chairman Mike Mora<br />

told Western News the submi sion<br />

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s<br />

plan.<br />

“You can just about guarant e<br />

it . because we [the community<br />

board] don’t believe qua ries<br />

should be so close to residential<br />

areas,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if<br />

the city council would endorse the<br />

board’ submi sion.<br />

“I’d like to think so because the<br />

city council has had their eyes<br />

open as we l ove recent years over<br />

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.<br />

Mr Mora said the community<br />

board wi l be “representing and<br />

advocating” for the Templeton<br />

community.<br />
