No solution

to traffic

issues at

Burnside

intersection

• By Jess Gibson

THERE APPEARS to be no

solution in sight to traffic

congestion at the Greers Rd and

Memorial Ave intersection.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

has voted not to recommend to

the city council that changes be

made at the intersection outside

Burnside High and Christ the

King schools.

Greers Rd is used by about 9000

vehicles in an average 12-hour

week day, half of which travel

southbound using the intersection.

The city council’s

$280,000 plan would have

widened Greers Rd to create a

shared left turn or “sharrow lane”

for cyclists, vehicles and the

Orbiter bus to ease congestion

during peak traffic.

The community board

was given two options

at a meeting last Monday.

Option one was to remove

the cycle lane and narrow the

footpath fronting Christ the King

School and option two was to do

nothing.

Papanui traffic report stalled

• By Jess Gibson

IT HAS now been a 16-month

wait for a report looking at the

state of traffic on Papanui roads.

In 2017, the Papanui-Innes

Community Board asked the

city council for a report on busy

roads in the area, including

Sawyers Arms Rd, Langdons Rd,

Main North Rd

and Sisson Drive.

The report

would show

which roading

issues the

community board

Ali Jones

John

Stringer

wants highlighted

and discussed at

the city council

level.

Board

chairwoman

Ali Jones said

while there is no

exact date for

the release of the

report it “will

come soon.”

In November, a city council

spokeswoman said the report

was expected to be received

before Christmas.

At the time, “safety concerns”

on Sisson Drive, proposals to

install a pedestrian refuge on

Sawyers Arms Rd, alterations

CHANGES: A report on roading issues in Papanui, including

Sawyers Arms Rd and Sisson Drive, is taking longer than

expected to complete.

to some intersections and

introducing more road markings

were the main issues being

addressed in the report.

Ms Jones said the full report

has not been completed due to

changes in what it was initially

going to look at when it was first

requested.

“There have been other issues

that have come up that we have

asked staff to look into, such

as speed limits in the area,

the effects that the Northern

Corridor will have and what

cycleways have done,” said Ms

Jones.

“All of these things weren’t an

issue when we first asked for the

report in 2017.”

Ms Jones said the board and

city council staff attended a

public-excluded seminar in

February to go over changes

before a formal report is

released.

Board member John Stringer

has called the process a

“bureaucratic meltdown.”

Mr Stringer, who was not at

the meeting, said the public

should at least be able to look at

the issues which were initially

being investigated.

“I just don’t agree that

we should be carrying on

these private conversations

behind-closed-doors and that

the public doesn’t get to have

transparency,” said Mr Stringer.

“I just want it to come out so

we can lay it on the table. There

may even not be anything in

it but at least the information

would be accessible,” he said.

But Ms Jones said she does not

want the board working from a

report that is out of date by the

time the public have it.

“We have to be flexible and

add things into it as we go,” she

said.

The initial request came after a

proposal to install bus and cycle

lanes along parts of Main North

Rd was approved.

The city council was unable to

comment on the release of the

report.

HARCOURTS GOLD

All the Glitter

of Gold!

Real estate agents come from

all sorts of backgrounds. Is it

time to make your move?

If only my 6th form Career’s counsellor had pointed

me in the direction of real estate. Like many of my

colleagues, I had other occupations prior to finding

my way into Real Estate. Real estate is a profession

that attracts all types of people: ex plumbers, nurses,

teachers, policemen and builders along with many

other occupations. They come to real estate and, often,

like me, discover a passion rather than a job and an

opportunity to reach their full potential.

I spent my first year in real estate with another real estate

company, before being fortunate enough to transfer to

Harcourts gold, so I know from first-hand experience

the incredible difference in systems and support there

can be between companies and offices. After 15 years

with the Harcourts gold franchise, I can vouch for the

incredible enrichment that Harcourts gold gives its

consultants.

On many occasions I have seen consultants who

were struggling in their real estate careers at other

companies, arrive at Harcourts gold and find themselves

overwhelmed by the invaluable systems and assistance

they receive from not only the Harcourts gold

management team, but their gold colleagues.

With this level of support, many of these consultants

have gone on to levels of success they could never have

imagined before.

The entire gold management team is involved with

training and mentoring. The managers all pride

themselves on the level of guidance offered to new

consultants studying for their real estate papers and

are more than happy to give advice and direction when

required. For the first six months that a new agent

is licensed (and beyond, if required!), management

supervision is always on offer.

With the huge number of listings marketed by the

Harcourts gold franchise across their four Christchurch

offices at any one time, an unparalleled number of open

home opportunities are available to new consultants to

help them as they build up their businesses. Prominently

positioned offices and a high profile also mean lots of

walk-in opportunities, and all Harcourts gold consultants

are offered opportunities to meet – and ultimately work

with – these prospective sellers and buyers.

So, if you know someone you think should consider a

career in real estate, you’re considering a career in real

estate yourself (or switching from another company),

take a good look at a Harcourts gold opportunity and

give me a call for a confidential chat. You won’t regret it.

Frustration over plan to leave intersection

•From page 1

A report showed that there

were three further options

considered but were ruled out

because they were not feasible.

The 7-2 vote in favour of not

doing anything has been met

with frustration from board

member Aaron Campbell, who

voted for option one.​

Mr Campbell said more work

needed to happen before the

decision was made by the board.

He attended a site visit

with traffic engineers and

Environment Canterbury before

the decision and said if the rest

of the board had done the same

they would have had a better

understanding of the issue.

Submissions were made by

four stakeholders, three opposed

the plan were made by Burnside

High School, Christ the King

School and former Labour MP

Margaret Austin, who, as a

resident, was unsatisfied with the

proposal.

The other submission was by

Environment Canterbury public

transport manager Edward

Wright, who was in support of

the plan as it would improve reliability

of the Orbiter bus service.

Board chairman Sam Mac-

Donald, among others who voted

for option two, was concerned

that option one would put the

CONGESTION: No changes will be made at the intersection

outside Burnside High and Christ the King schools, which

becomes grid-locked at peak hours with cyclists, vehicles and

safety of children who use the

footpath and intersection at risk.

In response to the decision, Mr

Wright said without changes,

unreliability and additional

travel time will remain for the

Orbiter.

“[Changes] would have resulted

in a time saving of around five

minutes for each anti-clockwise

Orbiter trip at peak hours,” said

Mr Wright.

Mr Campbell sent a letter

outlining his concern to Mayor

Lianne Dalziel, city council chief

executive Karleen Edwards and

city councillor Pauline Cotter on

Thursday.

“This is the first time I have

written to [the Mayor], that’s

how strongly I feel about it,”

said Mr Campbell.

“I’ve asked if there is another

avenue that this issue can be

considered,” he said.

Cr Cotter, who is the chairwoman

of the infrastructure,

transport and environment committee

received Mr Campbell’s

letter. Ms Dalziel and Dr Edwards

were not able to respond.

“There might be another way

forward if we pick up some

stronger engagement from the

people concerned,” said Cr

Cotter.

But board chairman Sam

MacDonald said that the

decision would not have come

before the board if it was not

ready.

He said in spite of not attending

the site visit, most board

members had been out to observe

the intersection at different

times.

“If [the decision] has been

put on our table it means it’s

been reviewed by all

the necessary staff,”

said Mr MacDonald.

Cr Raf Manji was in support

of the intersection changes as he

believed creating more space at

the intersection would improve

safety but acknowledged the

outcome.

“It’s such a busy road and

with two schools [at the site] it’s

almost impossible to try and

work out a solution that suits

everyone,” he said.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

A NEW MARIAN COLLEGE FOR 2023

MESSAGE FROM

THE BOARD

The Marian College Board is pleased

to share the Bishop’s decision to

relocate Marian College to north west

Christchurch on a three hectare site.

Our new College will neighbour St

Joseph’s Primary School on land

bordered by Vagues Road, Main North

Road and Northcote Road, with the main

entrance off Lydia Street.

The new school is projected to cost in

excess of $20 million and students are

expected to start in February 2023.

The Bishop said finding a new home for

Marian College has always been one of

his main priorities. The purchase of the

former Foodstuffs warehouse property on

Northcote Road has made this possible.

He indicated scoping and design work

will begin ready for when possession of

the land takes place in April 2021.

The news is exciting and very positive

for Marian College and the changes are

going to further strengthen and grow our

Catholic community.

Thank you to the Bishop on behalf of

Marian College for his commitment to

our future, and to the Catholic Diocese

of Christchurch for its steady support

over the years.

The Catholic Bishop of Christchurch, Paul

Martin and Marian College Principal Mary-

Lou Davidson visiting Marian College’s

new Papanui site.

Thank you also to our school community

for your loyalty and patience and to all

the schools, businesses and communities

who have supported Marian since the

earthquakes. It means a lot to us.

We look forward to the challenges the

next four years bring us and to having

closer working relationships with St

Joseph’s School Papanui and our brother

school St Bede’s College.

Tātou ko Mere e whakapono ana

With Mary in faith

Jan Paterson

Marian College Board of Trustees Chair

SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

What will the new school look like?

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

special character, values, heritage and story of Marian is incorporated and reflected in our

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

the heart of Marian College will remain the same.

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

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

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

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

classrooms.

Will there be opportunities for input into the new school?

Yes. We will be engaging with our school community and gathering ideas in coming

months.

Why is it taking until 2023 to get a new school?

The newly purchased site is currently tenanted and the lease expires in 2021. The Catholic

Diocese of Christchurch will then take possession of the land. In the meantime, there will

be valuable time for consultation, scoping and design work, before construction starts.

Will travel to and from the new school be more difficult?

Our new site is conveniently located on main arterial roads including QEII Drive and the

ring road to Eastern and seaside suburbs, Main North Road through to North Canterbury

as well as the Orbiter bus route. Connecting cycleways include the Papanui Parallel

Cycleway, Northern Line Cycleway and QEII Shared Cycleway.

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

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

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

North Road resulting in improved public transport journey times.

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

will have suitable transport options for students travelling from more than 30 of our feeder

primary schools - families living in Central and East Christchurch, the seaside suburbs and

North Canterbury.

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

A wonderful aspect of Marian College is how supportive and understanding our school

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

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

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

past students and staff of Marian College and also our founding schools St Mary’s College

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

will look like.

Champion Centre ‘lifesaver’

• By Jess Gibson

IN THE weeks and months

after her son Blake was born, the

Champion Centre at Burwood

Hospital was a lifesaver for Susie

Chisnall and her family.

Five-year-old Blake Chisnall

has Down’s syndrome and has

been going to sessions at the

centre since he was just a few

weeks old. Staff encouraged and

supported him as he learned to

crawl, walk and talk.

Now, Ms Chisnall, of St Albans,

has given back to the centre.

She raised $4890 at a high tea

and charity auction event at the

hairdressing and beauty salon

she co-owns, Salon Parlour on

Cranford St, St Albans.

The Champion Centre is a

not-for-profit organisation that

provides early intervention services

to infants and children with

significant developmental delays

and disabilities.

A night for two at Pavilions

Hotel, a signed Crusaders jersey

and two platinum tickets to

Saturday’s Crusaders v Brumbies

game, were some of the prizes

which were auctioned off.

Ms Chisnall said the staff at the

centre, including occupational

therapists, physiotherapists,

social workers, and speech and

language therapists are incredible.

“At a time when you are really

struggling to come to grips with

all of the challenges you’re facing

as a parent of a child with extra

needs they are the people who

give you information, support

and just all around kindness and

compassion,” she said.

The Champion Centre opened

in 1977 and is based on the belief

that every child, regardless of

physical, mental, or social capacity,

has the right to be educated,

to learn, grow, contribute, and to

reach their individual potential.

Play specialist Emma Chilvers

has worked with Blake for two

years and said he has been “delightful.”

“[The donation] is overwhelming.

What it says to us is that

she appreciates what the centre

stands for and the importance

of early intervention,” said Mrs

SUPPORT:

Susie Chisnall

raised almost

$5000 for the

Champion

Centre after

it helped her

Fire rages, homes at risk

Tree planting

marks park

opening

• By Jess Gibson

A KOWHAI tree was planted

to celebrate the opening of the

St Albans Park and pavilion last

Sunday.

A crowd of residents attended the

opening which had food, the annual

skate jam event and speeches

from members of the Papanui-

Innes Community Board.

Among those who attended

were Norah Southorn and Marie

Haughey – the two granddaughters

of James Haughey, who

sold the land of the park to the

council in 1903.

City councillor Pauline Cotter

said it was fantastic to talk to

people who were historically

connected to the park.

She said it will be good to see

sports teams using the fields

after being “virtually unusable”

during the winter months.

“It’s a real boost for the community,”

said Cr Cotter.

St Albans park had been under

construction since January 2018

to fix ongoing flooding issues.

The pavilion was severely

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquakes and was not

available to the community to

utilise fully before the official

opening.

The tragic events of 15 March will

live with us as a country for ever.

They should not, however, threaten

our sense of identity as a nation

that leads the world in the values of

respect and tolerance.

I stood with my fellow MPs at the

National Remembrance Service in

Christchurch to support our Muslim

community and send a clear message

that those tragic, heinous events do

not represent us. We are still coming

to terms with our loss but we are

standing united in the determination

we will not be altered by these

events and that, as a country, we will

continue to welcome people regardless

of race or religion.

Look out in your post box for my

invitation to attend my over 60s’

morning tea. Our region is enjoying

strong growth but we need to ensure

we have a strong focus on creating

an age-friendly community with the

right services available to our over

60s. As local MP, it’s important to

me to hear your views, so I’d love to

have your valuable input.

On Friday, I’m hosting National’s

Workplace Relations Spokesperson

and MP for Coromandel Scott Simpson

to a business lunch to give our

residents an opportunity to understand

how Government’s Employment

Law Changes and Capital Gains

Tax proposals could impact them and

their businesses. If the proposals are

passed, New Zealand would have

one of the most aggressive capital

gains taxes in the OECD, with an

impact on KiwiSaver savings, people

who take in boarders to help meet

the mortgage, small business owners

and farmers.

Keep your diary open for Friday 3

May when I will be featuring Hon

Nikki Kaye, MP for Auckland Central,

and local business owner Alice Mackenzie

at my Inspiring Women networking

lunch at Urban Revival Café

in Silverstream. This is the second

Inspiring Women event and the last

Former resident prompts board to look

at renewing Redwood playground

• By Jess Gibson

A FORMER Redwood

resident has called for a

playground he used 44 years

ago to be upgraded “on behalf

of generations raised in

Momorangi Cres.”

In a letter to the Papanui-

Innes Community Board,

Andy Waugh, who lived in

Momorangi Cres in 1975

and was there when the

playground was installed, said

the lack of investment in it was

“woeful.”

Mr Waugh said the

equipment is still the same as

when he was a child.

While writing an

autobiography for his 50th

birthday, Mr Waugh looked

up the ​playground and noticed

there is still “one bench seat,

one slide, two seesaws and two

swings.”

Board chairwoman Ali Jones

said its members are keen

to progress the matter after

receiving the letter.

But when Ms Jones asked

the city council about funding

for the playground a reply said

there was no money allocated

in the current 2018-2028 Long

Term Plan.

“Now we have to discuss the

information and look at it as a

board,” said Ms Jones.

Manager of community

parks Al Hardy said the

playground is in good

condition and is repainted

when required.

The letter alerted the board

to the liveable city outcomes

in the Community Board Plan

for 2017-2019, which state

“children are provided with

safe, fun playgrounds.”

“A [1970s] playground

present in 2019 is definitely not

fun,” said Mr Waugh.

Ms Jones said she was

surprised the playground had

not been renewed in decades

but acknowledged it was

NOR’WEST NEWS

probably because there is a

“huge number” of playgrounds

in the city.

“Some of the really good

things we have in life are old,”

said Ms Jones.

Mr Hardy said possible

plans will be discussed with

the community when there is a

budget for a renewal.

The history of Firestone in Papanui

Murray Williams of the

Papanui Heritage Group

highlights the history

of the Firestone Factory

in the first of a series of

upcoming articles

SHORTLY AFTER the end of

World War 2, the New Zealand

Government offered three

licences to overseas companies

to build and operate tyre

manufacturing plants.

The aim was to create

self-sufficiency in this key

industry and also to provide jobs

for New Zealand workers.

Two of the factories had to be

located in the North Island and

one in the South Island.

The United States Firestone

Corporation from Akron, Ohio,

was allocated the South Island

licence and after an extensive

analysis settled on Papanui as

the best location for this major

investment.

Papanui offered rail links with

the rest of the South Island, a

plentiful water supply, access to a

reliable power supply and

the potential of a large labour

force.

The actual site selected was

on Langdons Rd, just over

the railway line from Papanui

Technical College (now Papanui

High School).

The land, about 11ha, had originally

been part of the Papanui

Bush until it was cut out by 1857,

and at the time of the sale to

Firestone, nearly 90 years later,

had been Illingworth’s orchard.

There had been some local

disquiet about the presence of

such a large factory in Langdons

Rd, but these doubts were allayed

when it was revealed that

the plant would be set well back

from the street and would also

feature landscaping.

There appears to have been no

formal objection from Firestone’s

nearest neighbour, Papanui

Technical College.

The factory was built by

Christchurch contractor, Charles

Luney, and in her history of the

plant in Papanui, Carol Hayward

recounts that many of Luney’s

employees decided to join the

Firestone workforce.

The plant was formally opened

on October 29, 1948, by Arnold

Nordmeyer, the Minister of

Industries and Commerce.

He and the other speakers at

the function were each

rewarded with a brand new

Firestone tyre with their names

inscribed on it.

SHALDERS

Also in 1948, a neon sign that

advertised Firestone products

was erected on the top of the

Papanui Buildings located at the

junction of Papanui, the North

and Harewood Rds.

In a relatively short time, the

Firestone sign helped to develop

strong brand awareness and

helped to forge the link between

the suburb and its largest

manufacturer.

Harewood Community

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald’s soapbox

on concerns over rate

increases

Kenneth Thompson –

What a joke the rates increases

are. There is a house for sale in

Hornby, GV value of $500k,

which has been on the market

for six weeks, highest offer was

$450k, 10 per cent below its rated

value. If anything, we should get

a rebate. The city council needs to

listen for once to the ratepayers

who pay their wages – they are

not our employers, we are theirs,

and the sooner they remember

that the better. Some who are on

limited incomes are struggling

to manage daily living. This city

council is a disgrace, there are

probably four who are any good,

the rest are showpieces dictated

to by the managers of which

there are more than enough for

a small city of 500,000 people.

There is an old saying “too many

cooks spoil the broth” – never

more true than in our fair city.

Sam Macdonald hits it on the

head in his column. Good on

him, we need people like him

to say it as it is. I could go on

and on about this city council’s

failings there are so many. We all

know what they are, we need to

remember on election day who

they are and vote accordingly.

Peter Coleman – Sam is

right to point out difficulties for

fixed, low-income ratepayers. It

affects us all. I get the impression

that this council is not happy

that we can presently manage

our households. They want to

incrementally turn up the heat to

“rate us out of our homes” as Sam

says. They also want us out of our

cars. However, in the article, the

fundamental issue of why there

is such a need to raise our rates is

not addressed. The council will

have its reasons. But can we trust

them in the light of what has

happened over our water, unused

bike lanes and extravagant

big-ticket items? Why is the

council acting like this? In my

humble opinion, it is using an

offshore blueprint. This is a

deception, mainly because people

are not aware of this.

Jan Reeves – I would like to

add my horror at how the rates

may be going up. If the council

would go back to basics, we

would be much better off. I am

fed up with all the grand ideas

and ways to spend rates. Time

to come back to thinking about

the people who contribute the

money it gets to spend.

Jenny Jordan - I am worried

along with many other people

that if rates keep increasing,

how will we manage to cope

if our incomes are not increasing?

I have rung the council to voice

my concern and it said the rates

will keep increasing, this is the

plan that the city council has in

place. My son lives on his own

and pays his rates on his single

income. Realistically he said

his income is not likely to rise

50 per cent in the next 10 years.

So where does this extra money

come from?

I don’t know what planet

some of these councillors are on

but I think most people would

agree most people will not be

able to afford to stay in their own

house. So where are we going

to live? We really need the city

council to understand what is

realistic.

excellence

“Good values are like a magnet – they attract good people”

Being part of a large multi-national company

is a huge responsibility at times. If you feel

detached, you can easily get lost due to the

sheer size of a big business. If the parent

company provides a sense of vision and a set of

values, the connection becomes both easier and

more authentic. We find ourselves in this space

as a local business.

We’ve distilled our parent company’s beliefs to

include our own vision and set of guiding values,

and although they mirror those of a large brand,

we’ve adjusted them so they reflect our own

unique nuances. It’s so easy to be cynical about

a vision or a company mission statement or any

of the many seemingly ‘new age’ taglines that sit

around business, but when it’s real, it feels right.

And so it is with us. It’s taken a really long time to

consolidate a vision that incorporates our desire

to be the best realtors in New Zealand; adding

value (tangible and intangible) to our clients and

to the lives of the people who make up our team.

(Thank you so much, Gilbert Enoka.)

Not just their working lives, but the lives they

envisaged achieving when they joined us, with all

those associated dreams and hopes.

Business is not easy and it doesn’t get easier with

the years, but every day I get up on a mission to

do my best. I’d rather race to any given finish line

than crawl to the start, and knowing we’ve got

a reason and a vision as a company to propel us

forward makes it all the more special.

What’s your vision?

What do you stand for?

I know the answers to these questions and, to

anyone in business, so should you.

Christ’s student wins

Cambridge scholarship

SCHOOLS

WILLIAM WYNN Thomas

wants to change the world.

The 17-year-old former Christ’s

College student may be on the

right path when he heads to

Cambridge University to follow

in the footsteps of Stephen Hawking.

William was the winner

of the $60,000 Sir Douglas

Myers scholarship, which

he’s using to head to the

prestigious United Kingdom

university and plans

to study for the mathematical

tripos course.

“In the academic realm,

I aspire to be part of the

effort to unify quantum

physics and relativity, which

would constitute a scientific revolution

of the greatest magnitude,”

he said.

“Furthermore, through my

own research, I believe I can help

place New Zealand on the academic

map and foster its growth

as a global hub of excellence.”

William received six

scholarships in calculus,

physics, biology, chemistry

and statistics.

He was also head of

the school choir, and

orchestra, captain of

the school football

team, co-founder of the

school journal, both

founded and captained

the Christ’s College

e-Sports League of Legends team

and represented Canterbury in

debating.

But William said the reason

more students don’t get into

science and maths is the way its

taught.

“I believe that students are

repelled from science because,

in many cases, it is taught in an

unapproachable manner with a

curriculum that often lacks the

ability to engage young minds.”

Sir Douglas set up the

scholarship 18 years ago for

academically gifted students

intending to return to New

Zealand to become leaders in

their fields.

He was one of New Zealand’s

Orchestras combine for ‘fantastic’ show

•From page 1

Rangi Ruru director of music

Janet Kingsbury said the show

was “fantastic.”

“One of the highlights for all of

us involved was seeing students

collaborating and working together

as a team to create something

greater than they would

be able to do on their own,” said

Mrs Kingsbury.

Students performed in their

own school orchestras before

merging for the combined

evening concert.

Mrs Kingsbury and a colleague

came up with the idea to “reinvent”

the show as a similar oneoff

show had been performed

seven years earlier.

Music teachers and principals

of all schools involved agreed on

the idea and worked together to

make it happen.

ACHIEVE: Tulsi Lathia, 17, will be the only Christchurch

representative at the developing leaders’ expedition in Vietnam

later this month. ​

Business trip for

Rangi ‘Girl Boss’

• By Jess Gibson

A YEAR 13 Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School​ student

will be the only Christchurch

representative to go on a business

study trip to Vietnam.

Tulsi Lathia of Cashmere, 17,

was one of 12 students around

New Zealand selected by Young

Enterprise NZ for the two week

long developing leaders’ expedition

trip at the end of the month.

The expedition aims to expose

students to opportunities

after school and in the hub of

businesses in Asia.

Students were chosen based

on their passion for business,

interest in learning about another

culture and developing their confidence

and global perspective.

“I cannot wait to immerse in

the Vietnam business world and

network with entrepreneurs and

students who are as passionate

about business as I am,” said

Tulsi.

“It will be an amazing experience

that will help me develop

new business skills and bring my

goals for the future into focus.”

Tulsi was also awarded the Innovative

Award at 2018 national

Girl Boss awards.

She was one of six chosen from

over 400 nominations of young

women​ who had “driven change

in their community.”

Tulsi invented a device that

could help locate people following

a natural disaster and

a second device that was a fire

detection, evacuation and control

system. Teacher manager of

young enterprise at Rangi Ruru,

Jacqui Griffith said the trip will

be a great opportunity for Tulsi.

Students will learn about the

culture and business community

in Ho Chi Minh City – which

will include visits to companies,

meeting with local entrepreneurs,

as well as those involved in some

of New Zealand’s trade relationships.

For a business challenge,

students will be put into mixed

teams with local students, issued

with a challenge to come up with

a solution that uses their innovative

thinking.

“This is a wonderful

opportunity for students to

understand the local business

culture and trade environment

and spend time with like-minded

peers,” said Ms Griffith.

High school rowing’s new champs

• By Gordon Findlater

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School stamped their authority

at Maadi Cup as secondary

school rowing’s newest

powerhouse.

At the regatta on Lake Karapiro

in Cambridge, CBHS won

their first ever Maadi Cup, but

were also the regatta with 42

points on the official tally.

They beat out tradition rowing

schools Hamilton Boys’ High

School in second with 37 points

and St Peter’s School (Cambridge)

in third overall with 28

points.

Points are awarded to crews

that finish in the top three in the

A finals.

In the Maadi Cup under-18

coxed eight race, defending

champions Christ’s College took

an early lead before CBHS made

their move at the 1000m.

The crew of Scott Shackleton,

Tom Fraser, Cameron Long,

Ethan Alderlieste, Cameron

Henderson, Angus Templeton,

James Glover, Ben Brown and

coxswain Timothy Heritage

steadily increased their pace and

eventually took the lead, crossing

the finish line in 5mins 54.31secs

with Christ’s College taking

silver in 5mins 55.71secs.

CBHS also won the Springbok

Shield under-18 coxed four in a

record time of 6mins 25.39secs.

– “I’m just really proud of how

well they rowed, there were a few

girls in today’s boat who had an

off season last year with various

set-backs, and getting them all

back into their best condition for

today’s final has being incredibly

satisfying.’’

In total St Margaret’s won

three golds and one silver at the

regatta.

Meanwhile, Rangi Ruru Girls’

School also had success winning

two gold, one silver and three

bronze medals. One of the highlights

for Rangi Ruru came in

where they ran two crews who

showed grit and determination

to pull that off,” said Rangi Ruru

rowing manager Ella Vink.

Athletics Day

Burnside High School Athletics Day was held over two days in February. Participation in the event was

very high, with a number of records being broken that had stood for many years.

From there 75 students went on to represent the school at the Canterbury Secondary School’s

Athletics Championships which was held at Nga Puna Wai on 19th and 23rd of March. Students

were excited to compete on an artificial track after many years competing on grass following the

earthquakes. We came away with twelve Canterbury titles including two relay titles.

Burnside High School are the winners of the 2019 Top Co-Ed School Award for Canterbury Athletics.

International Olympiad Informatics is the most

prestigious computer science competition in the

world for secondary school students.

The 2019 IOI will be a week-long competition held

and a pre-departure camp before leaving for Baku

in early August. The lead supervisor and mentor

of the New Zealand delegation this year - Logan

The team was formed through a highly competitive

selection process. Students were first identified

from various competitions last year and invited

to attend an intensive training camp in January.

Through several competitions, starting at the camp

and continuing through February and March, the 30

camp participants were narrowed down to the final

team of four representing New Zealand.

All the very best Eric.

Junior kayakers get NZ call-up

• By Gordon Findlater

KAYAKERS FROM north-west

schools will make up the New

Zealand female junior squad at

the world junior championships

in Romania in August.

Last week Canoe Racing New

Zealand announced that Olivia

Brett (St Andrew’s College), Pieta

Luthi (St Margaret’s College),

Jess Nisbett (Papanui High

School), Cass Hetherington

(Christchurch Girls’ High

School) and Tilly Pritchard

(Hagley College) will make up

the five strong junior women’s

squad.

THe five girls are all part of the

Arawa Canoe Club at Kerrs Reach.

“We’re wrapped. It’s a culmination

of a lot of hard work from

these kids and their coach Paul

Fidow,” said Arawa president

Stuart Clark.

“They’re training nine or more

times a week with five or six of

those being at six o’clock in the

morning in the gym and on the

river. The Avon River is not the

most pleasant place to be at that

time of the day sometimes.”

Brett will compete in the K1

200 and will team up with Luthi

in the K2 500. Luthi, Pritchard,

Lisbett and Hetherington will

make up the K4 500. Pritchard

is also being considered for the

K1 500.

In February the girls dominated

the under-18 division at

the national championships

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

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

200, under-18 K1 500, under-18

K2 200, under-18 K2 500 and

Transform

your garden

with a natural timber sauna

For those seeking the ultimate in garden lifestyle,

the answer can be found at Canterbury Saunas, says

business owner Mark Smith. As he explains, a Finnish

barrel sauna turns a garden into a sanctuary of

relaxation, refreshment and rejuvenation.

The barrels come from Finland and

are made by a passionate family

company, who live, breathe and

sleep sauna, Mark says. They are

handcrafted from Thermowood, a

very slow-growing Nordic Spruce

that has been heat-treated at 205

degrees celcius for two days. The

timber is free of resin, durable, and

not prone to warping, so is perfect

for sauna. Thermowood is also 25 per

cent more thermally efficient compared to

cedar.

“Similar-looking saunas are available elsewhere.

However, at Canterbury Saunas we use 45mm-thick

timber to ensure longevity and we offer many upgrade

options, such as windows and different lengths and

widths.

”People were taken aback at the recent Canterbury

Home Show, at the quality of the ball-and-socket

joinery and how many growth rings were on the timber

walls – people kept coming up and stroking them,”

Mark says.

Unrivalled in size and options for customisation,

Canterbury Saunas also exclusively offers

the Huum heater range, from 4.5kw to

18kw. The standard model holds 55kg

of stones, which produces fabulous

steam, and with an upgrade option

the heater can be controlled

remotely with a smart phone.

For a more rustic feel, clients can

also upgrade to a traditional woodburning

heater, perfect for people in

remote locations.

Mark says sauna compares well to a

conventional spa pool, without the need to

run the heater constantly. He has used his St Albans

sauna several times a week for over a year and has

found that the electricity costs are about $2 a session.

Virtually maintenance free, there are no slippery steps,

filters to be changed or harsh chemicals to add to the

sauna – a quick sweep out and wipe down every few

weeks is sufficient. Oiling the outside of the timber

once a year is also recommended.

Published studies from the University of Bristol, which

used very large study groups over 20 years, have

come back with some interesting findings, Mark says.

Regular use of Finnish-style saunas can reduce blood

pressure and the chance of stroke. It also benefits

skin condition and eases breathing problems. Soft

tissue aches and pains are also eased in the heat of

sauna. Finally, the barrel shape and quiet environment

combine to create a feeling of peace and sanctuary

away from the hectic pace of life.

Canterbury Saunas has a demonstration model

at Oderings Garden Centre, 20 West Coast Road,

Yaldhurst. Website www.canterburysaunas.co.nz

Six wayS SaunaS

beat spa pools

Ease aches and pains away with a Scandinavian

designed and crafted barrel sauna, the hot

new option with some great advantages.

1. Saunas only use power when in use.

2. Saunas aren’t noisy.

3. Easier to keep clean with no need for chemicals.

4. Enjoyable in any weather, cocooned from

the elements.

5. Safer – no slippery steps, level floor, and easy to get

in and out of.

6. Lower maintenance because there’s only one

working part, the heater.

CHAMPION: Lily Greenwood was dominant in the New Zealand

secondary school triathlon championship in New Plymouth.

RANGI RURU Girls School

under-13 title at the New Zealand

secondary school triathlon

championship in New Plymouth.

Lily, a year 9 student, finished

But it was her dominance in

the running leg, which

she completed in 8mins 4secs,

which saw her romp to

victory.

The result also meant that Lily

completed an impressive

trifecta of school titles this

year.

Last month she won the

junior girls individual title at the

South Island secondary schools

triathlon in Oamaru.

She then won the under-14

girls title at the Canterbury

secondary schools triathlon

champs in Sumner a week

later.

Lily credits her success to

Rangi cycle coach Marc Prutton’s

training programme, as well as

her training with the Canterbury

Tri Club.

There was also success at the

event for Medbury School pupil

Olli Aitken, who finished

second in the under-12 boys

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

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

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 apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

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.

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

cart visits Lincoln w ekly betw en

September-May along with a Thai

f od truck.

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

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

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

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.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

Ri carton Community Board

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submission

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

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

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.
