Bid to fly seaplanes for

“It is still very early days, but

we are thinking about providing

a service that would complement

all the other tourist operations in

He was confident it would be a

success.

The harbour is close to

Christchurch so from a tourism

perspective it is an ideal location,

especially with the cruise ships

set to return to Lyttelton in

2020.”

Mr Christensen said the service

was likely to run between spring

and autumn.

Mr Christensen, who is a

with commercial lawyer Grant

40,000 native trees for Cranford Basin

Currently, the basin on the

west side of Cranford St acts as a

natural stormwater collector.

Of the 125ha that the basin

covers, 10ha will be used for the

plantation of Kahikatea trees.

An additional 25ha will be used

for the additional plantation of

native bush, but not as part of the

current project.

Trees for Canterbury

volunteers have been collecting

Kahikatea seed from Riccarton

Bush and planting them in the

basin in the lead up to the first

significant plantation of 3500

seeds next year.

The following plantation of

36,500 trees is planned for 2020.

Manager Steve Bush said the

wetlands are “perfect” for the

plantation of Kahikatea.

Mr Bush said he hopes schools

and community members will

jump on board for the plantation

days.

“It will be an ideal opportunity

for people within the city limits

to be involved a single planting

that represents something so

special,” said Mr Bush.

Kahikatea was chosen for

planting as they provide many

ecological benefits and are

expected to provide a hub for

native bush bird around the city.

Once trees have grown, Cranford

Basin will be the largest

area of native forest on the low

Canterbury plains.

A report outlining the

project said that Cranford

St is a “distinctive feature of

Christchurch” and provides

the last rural experience for

motorists entering the city from

the north.

If the basin was not acquired

for forestation, the land and soils

would have continued to

degrade.

A SECOND man has been

charged with the murder of

King Cobras gang member Luke

Riddell.

The 28-year-old was shot and

killed at Charring Cross in the

Selwyn District in October.

Daniel Gary French, 35 appeared

in the district court yesterday

and was charged with murder,

along with Alistair Cochrane, 25.

Crown prosecutor Will Taffs

sought for an application for the

two men’s murder charges to be

heard at the same trial, planned

for February next year.

French was arrested on firearms

charges a few days after the incident

and has been held in custody

since. He was charged as the

principal offender and a party to

the murder of Mr Riddell and has

not yet made a plea.

Cochrane denies the murder

charge and will appear again in

the High Court on May 2, for a

call-over hearing.

A courtroom brawl broke

out at an earlier appearance for

French, when gang members

who were seated in the public

he was standing. Judge O’Driscoll

remanded French in custody to

New library tops half million mark

CHRISTCHURCH’S new public

library Tūranga has had nearly

550,000 visitors in the six months

since it opened.

Tūranga manager Chris Hay

said residents have welcomed the

library and it has already become

a busy space in the heart of the

city.

“It almost feels like we’ve been

open longer than six months

because we’re so much a part of

the landscape of the central city

for many residents. People come

here for different reasons but

they all seem to find it a useful,

enjoyable place to be.

“Drawing people back into the

central city was a key aim for this

project and based on the first six

months, Tūranga is achieving

that goal. The community floor,

Hapori, on level 1, has been particularly

popular with families.”

Foot traffic numbers show

548,922 people explored the

library in its first six months of

operation, an average of 2754

each day. The busiest day so far

was on October 20, when 5254

since it opened its doors.

The $92 million five-level

centre was described by Mayor

Lianne Dalziel as marking the

return of the city’s “cultural

and community heart” when it

opened on October 12.

As well as housing more than

180,000 items, Tūranga has a

music studio, video editing suite,

3D printer, robotics, exhibition

spaces, meeting rooms, a café,

Spark Place, the Innovation

Zone, the TSB Space function

There are also study rooms, quiet

‘Aves Invasion’ will travel

A NOTORIOUS boy racer event

concern is that police

already “have a lot on their

plate.”

“Our community is feeling vulnerable,

that’s a fact. The police

are stretched, but in that context,

the streets are still available for

everybody, it’s a public place. But

it’s the context I guess.”

Mr Green said he hopes that

every individual is responsible for

their actions.

“If the organiser wants to

speak to us then it suggests they

are aware it is sensitive and

that is a good starting point for

conversation,” he said.

Surgeons spent 8800 minutes

• By Sophie Cornish

SIX DAYS of continuous surgery.

That’s how long it would take

if you added up the more than

8800min spent in surgery at

Christchurch Hospital, for the

victims of the March 15 terror

attack.

Figures released this week by

the Canterbury District Health

Board show

the extensive

lengths the

hospital was

pushed to when

dealing with the

event.

Never before

David Meates

has a hospital

in New Zealand

been required

to manage 48 patients with gunshot

wounds.

Even internationally, a trauma

event of this size would usually

be spread across a number of

healthcare centres, CDHB chief

executive David Meates said.

Every patient who was brought

into the emergency department

at the hospital following the attack

survived, a feat Mr Meates

described as “really remarkable.”

The ED was open again to

the general public by 6pm that

evening – something that just

“doesn’t happen” Mr Meates

said.

HARD WORK: Canterbury District Health Board chief

executive David Meates says the Christchurch Hospital

response to the March 15 terror attack was “remarkable” and

released figures this week about the incident.

“It is just incredibly extraordinary,”

he said.

Mr Meates said staff are feeling

“immensely proud” of what they

achieved.

The enormity of what they

have done hasn’t quite sunk in

. . . it is still a long journey ahead.

The focus will be on the wellness

of those in the health system,

tomorrow, next week and the

years to come.”

THE RESPONSE

•During and following

the immediate response,

planned surgery was

deferred to enable timely

management of acute

work.

Theatres ran

continuously. Surgeons

of almost all specialities,

anaesthetists and theatre

staff were called in and

worked the Friday night,

Saturday and Sunday.

•Twelve acute theatres

operated all Friday night

and throughout Saturday

with seven acute theatres

operating on Sunday.

•As of April 1, there were

75 theatre events. Patients

from the mosque attacks

have spent more than

8800min in theatre. This

is equivalent to more than

six continuous days.

•Consumables and

clinical supplies were

utilised at two to three

times the normal rate.

The intensive care unit

did not have sufficient

capacity to take all of

the patients needing its

care. Some patients were

moved to other wards

and additional staff were

allocated to support.

•As at April 1, patients have

spent 2271 hours in the

intensive care unit.

•Since March 15, the CDHB

diverted patients from other

districts who would be likely

to require intensive care.

This includes diverting acute

spinal work to Counties

Manukau.

•Lockdown of hospital

facilities meant staff were

unable to leave and

patients unable to attend

so ED patients were

diverted to urgent care

facilities, in particular, the

Animal lover in shock

after attack on car

• By Sophie Cornish

ABUSIVE NOTES, deaththreats,

imitation guns, and now

an axe attack on her car.

This is what mother-of-two

Annie Mags has experienced

since she became vegan five years

ago.

The social worker and animal

rights activist has a number

plate on her car which reads

‘VEGANS,’ which she now plans

to change.

A police spokeswoman confirmed

inquiries are on-going

into the report of a car being

damaged in the St Martins area,

at 5.30am on April 11.

Ms Mags’ neighbour saw the

incident unfold from the second

story of her house and yelled out

to the offenders to stop.

She said she heard a car idling

for a long time before looking out

of her window to see two men

with axes hitting the car.

She described the car as a black

Nissan Skyline with a “noisy

muffler and blue neon lights

underneath.”

Ms Mags believes the attack

was targeted, as it’s not the

only time her number plate has

gained attention. She’s previously

received “disgusting abuse” and

death threats both online and

in person. “I’m just sick of it.

I’ve been threatened when I am

driving around town because of

my number plate. One person

pointed at my number plate then

made a hand movement of pointing

a gun at their head. It was

scary, I had my kids in the car,”

she said.

Another time, she has found a

note left on her windscreen reading

“you vegan piece of s**t, park

somewhere else.”

“How could someone have

so much hatred for me for my

compassion towards animals?

Ultimately, I feel so sad. I am

saddened that someone hates me

enough to do this to me and my

children,” she said.

Ms Mags has made a claim

through her insurance company

but her car is most likely going

to be written off. She will have to

pay $400 excess.

In 2015, her animal activist Facebook

page ‘Annie Mags’ in the

spotlight when a post she made

attracted thousands of shares and

media coverage. The post of a

photo of thin cattle being transported

on a Cook Strait ferry

sparked an investigation by the

Ministry of Primary Industries.

Historic church

goes up for sale

ST ANNE’S Church in St

Martins is for sale.

The Anglican Diocese of

Christchurch is selling the

church and vicarage, on the

corner of Wilsons and Centaurus

Rds as is where is.

St Anne’s, part of the Opawa/St

Martins Parish, is on the market

to help to raise money for

repair and restoration work to be

done on the other neighbouring

Anglican church in the parish, St

Mark’s in Opawa.

The two churches amalgamated

in 2007 as part of a Diocesan

rationalisation programme.

Reverend Canon Ben Truman,

vicar of the Parish of Opawa/

St Martins, said that the parishioners

are sad but philosophical

about relinquishing the site.

“It’s a site that has been used

for worship for almost 100 years.

Services there began in the 1920s

and the church there was built in

the late 1940s. So, of course, we

are sad. But we are very excited

to begin work on repairing and

renovating St Mark’s,” he said.

“As part of that renovation,

plans are under way to include

a small chapel, which we will

call the Chapel of St Anne’s, in

recognition of our parish history

and to keep a new expression of

St Anne’s alive.”

Rev Truman said it is also

looking forward to welcoming

the pupils of St Mark’s School

back into their home church

again.

Investment broker Courtney

Doig of Colliers International

said St Anne’s church, while

damaged, is safe to occupy and

services are still being held there.

These lovely buildings are

safe to occupy and would suit

a variety of uses. Any buyer

would have the ability to lease to

provide holding income while

planning their repair or redevelopment,”

he said. The buildings

are for sale by deadline private

treaty, closing May 2.

Former soldier says he was raped

A FORMER Territorial soldier

claims he was gang raped at

Burnham Military Camp in the

mid-1970s.

The shocking allegation is

made by the now 65-year-old

in a series of videos on male sex

abuse, which will be launched in

Christchurch tonight.

Terry King, who was 21 at the

time, says the gang rape was

meted as “barrack justice.”

He had dirt on his rifle when

his platoon was inspected, and

as a result, weekend leave for all

was cancelled.

He and other who appear in

the video series, have gone public

to raise awareness of male sexual

abuse.

Mr King said he was attacked

the following night in the showers,

by four or five men. Several

others watched, he said.

Another young soldier had endured

similar treatment a week

before. The soldier reported the

rape, but soon after was “kicked

out” of the military, Mr King

said. On parade the next morning,

Mr King’s facial injuries saw

him sent to the medical officer.

No one asked him how he

got his injuries. Mr King never

reported it at the time for fear

he would get kicked out of the

military.

“You’ve got to remember, back

then homosexual acts were illegal,

and both people could be arrested,’

he says. Mr King served

in the Territorials for 10 years.

Last year Mr King finally decided

to inform the New Zealand

Defence Force about what happened.

Mr King and a counsellor

he had been seeing since having

a mental breakdown in 2017 met

with two representatives from

the NZDF.

Mr King and the NZDF differ

further.

But a NZDF spokesman told

The Star in its view there was an

agreement with Mr King and his

counsellor the NZDF would not

take “further action.”

The spokesman said if Mr

King wanted a formal investigation,

he would need to

contact the police in the “first

instance” due to jurisdiction

issues.

Mr King said he was angry

with the response. He will not go

said the NZDF should investigate

Mr Clearwater also says he was

At a meeting last year held at

the Christchurch City Mission

by the NZDF, Mr Clearwater

stood up and shared his story

for the first time. Afterwards,

he spoke to two members of the

NZDF about it in further detail.

He never heard back from the

NZDF and says it has “no idea”

how to handle cases of historical

sexual abuse.

“I don’t think they have acknowledged

or even understand

the issues.”

A NZDF spokesman said it is

working on how it responds to

historical sexual trauma cases.

“We acknowledge that we still

have a lot of work to do. The

work into historic cases will take

time and is only just starting.”

Defence Minister Ron Mark

said he expects the NZDF to

treat “every survivor with respect

and dignity.”

He said NZDF has come a

“long way” in how it deals with

sexual trauma cases.

Homeowner’s creek flooding issues

It’s cost $30,000 for an

environmental impact

report and legal fees

and after four years

Brent Gibson is no

closer to resolving the

issue of water flooding

his backyard. Julia

Evans reports

BRENT GIBSON had the plans

for his twilight years all set out.

He and his wife Christine were

going to build a unit on the back

for their 1012m2 property at

Blighs Rd, Papanui, and rent out

the house in front they’ve been

living in for the last 37 years.

“My retirement dreams have

been shattered,” the registered

master builder said.

For the last five years, about

twice a year his section floods

with 80cm of water and because

of the flooding, the unit would

have to be built on stilts.

“It’s not always heavy rain, it’s

more often when there’s sudden

rain,” he said.

Dudley Creek, which passes

through his back garden, floods.

“If it rains heavily, it probably

gets 1m deep.”

He has to clear out all the

furniture from his garage and

fear of drowning.

He said his section has become

a “mini-Flockton Basin” but it’s

only affecting one property.

In 2015, the city council approved

the Dudley Creek bypass,

to help address the Flockton

Basin issues in St Albans and

Mairehau. But Mr Gibson’s

flooding problem in Papanui is

unresolved.

He said the property behind his

was raised with fill when it was

built, which is contributing to the

flooding issue.

“This filling behind us is in

breach of the resource consent

granted for this development and

is clearly documented,” he said.

The other factor Mr Gibson

said, is after the council built

Blighs Rd up to “improve safety”

for road users. He said water is

diverted into his property and

the flooding has become unbearable.

But the city council disagrees.

The city council regulatory

compliance unit investigated his

claims in 2015 and again recently,

a city council spokesperson said.

It determined that there was

not any basis for enforcement

action.

“His property floods in extreme

events because it is in the

Dudley Creek floodplain. Filling

on the neighbours’ property

and widening of Dudley Creek

has some effect on the storage

capacity of the floodplain,” the

spokesperson said.

“Raising the road may displace

water into that floodplain. An

assessment by council staff in

2015 was that this would have

minimal effect.”

It found the waterway floodplain

issue, found throughout

Christchurch, was made worse by

the earthquake.

Roadworks were carried out on

Blighs Rd in the early 1990s and

2007.

“Recent survey levels show that

the interpath channel and road

drainage networks in Blighs Rd

should function sufficiently . . .

any overflows from the corner

sump within the footpath will

flow north back into Dudley

Creek instead of going against

the gradient into 197 Blighs Rd.”

Mr Gibson has been going

back and forth with the council

to have the issue fixed and has

spent about $25,000 on two reports

from Lowe Environmental

Impact to prove how and why the

property floods.

That’s on top of the $5000 on

legal fees to get advice from lawyer

Pru Steven.

“Before 2014, very few floods

had occurred at 197 Blighs Rd

and when it did flood, the water

only slightly over topped the

creek backs with little to no impact,”

the Lowe report said.

There are many failures in

the road design and stormwater

system around 197 Blighs Rd. By

changing the profile of the road

in the two upgrades, the secondary

flow paths have changed and

been reduced in capacity.”

It said there is nowhere for

the water to go, except into Mr

Gibson’s property.

The earthquake and the development

of St Bathans Lane have

also had an impact on the flood

level and water storage, but we

consider that neither is the major

cause of the flooding.”

While the report seems conclusive

to what the cause of the issue

is, Mr Gibson said he regrets

spending the $30,000.

“I thought it was fait accompli.

But I was wrong,” he said.

The city council spokesperson

said it “respects” the report and

“does not deny it” but has a different

opinion on some matters.

Mr Gibson said there is nothing

he can do legally because the

city council installed a bund at

the entrance to the property.

They put an asphalt bund over

the driveway . . . because they put

the asphalt bund in, they said they

may or may not do something in

the future,” Mr Gibson said.

The city council spokesperson

said it is investigating possible

changes to the design of the bund.

It is also completing a more

complex stormwater flow assessment

of the area within 18

months and then another 12

months to assess if any physical

works are necessary.

There are no assurances that

the result would be any physical

works that address Dudley

Creek floodplain management

in this area. That depends on

the outcome of the modelling,

prioritisation of works and any

competing demands on the

council’s resources,” the spokesperson

said.

But Mr Gibson said he’s already

waited five years and there

are still no guarantee he will get

the outcome he’s after.

“And now they expect me to

wait another two . . . I’m stuck in

the middle and I’ve done nothing,”

he said.

“My retirement was reliant on

building that unit. Now I can’t

see me ever retiring,” he said.

Council on asbestos watch

• By Julia Evans

SOLAR PANELS will

not be installed on public

toilets after a number of

thefts.

The $10,000 solar panels

on top of the toilets at

Bexley Reserve have been

stolen twice.

City councillor Aaron

Keown said they would

not be installed at the new

toilets at Lake Roto Kohatu

or any toilets in future.

Cr Keown said it was a

shame as running power

is “10 times the price” of

installing panels.

“It’s a completely

different neighbourhood,”

THE CITY council

is ramping up the

assessments of buildings to

determine how many have

asbestos.

The city council owns

more than 2000 buildings

across Christchurch and

Banks Peninsula, including

toilet blocks, storage,

community centres, libraries,

sport and recreation

centres and social housing.

It plans to check nearly

all of them over the next

five years to determine

how many may have asbestos

containing material

in them.

Head of facilities, planning

and property Bruce

Rendall said if asbestos is

present in a building, it is

unlikely to pose any health

risk.

“But we need to know

it is there so that we can

begin to manage it and

plan how we safely remove

it,” he said.

Mr Rendall said the

buildings being checked

are mostly older ones built

before 1978, and ones that

he said.

Feedback on the proposed

$1 million toilet

block will be presented to

the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board before it is approved.

The plans are for two

separate toilet blocks,

which would be installed at

the popular recreation site

on Sawyers Arms Rd.

There are currently

have not been recently

checked through other

programmes.

“We will be keeping

tenants of our buildings

informed about the testing

process and the results as

they come through,’’ Mr

Rendall says.

“In the unlikely event

that we do need to

stop using a building

because of the presence

of asbestos, we will work

with the tenants to find

them suitable temporary

facilities.’’

No solar panels for toilet blocks

Yang Jiechi on the Belt and Road

Initiative and Preparations for

the Second Belt and Road Forum

for International Cooperation

On 17 November 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping

announced that the second Belt and Road Forum for

International Cooperation (BRF) would be held in Beijing

in April 2019. On 29 March 2019, Mr. Yang Jiechi, Member

of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the

Communist Party of China and Director of the Office of

the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs, who oversees

the preparations for the Forum, talked about progress in

pursuing Belt and Road cooperation and preparations for

the Forum.

Q: What role has the BRI played in deepening

international cooperation, promoting closer ties

between countries, and boosting global growth?

A: BRI is an important initiative for international

cooperation proposed by President Xi to enhance

both China’s development and its cooperation with

global partners. So far, a total of 124 countries and 29

international organizations have signed BRI cooperation

documents with China. Most recently, during President

Xi’s visit to Italy, the two countries signed an MOU on

promoting BRI cooperation, giving a new impetus to this

process. Meanwhile, the BRI vision has been included in

documents of major international institutions including

the United Nations, the G20, the Asia-Pacific Economic

Cooperation and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. I

would draw your attention to the positive role the BRI has

played in the following three ways:

First, BRI has opened a new area for international

cooperation and boosted confidence in it.

The world today is experiencing profound changes

unseen in a century. Protectionism and unilateralism

are rising, so are uncertainties and destabilizing factors.

BRI is a significant move China has taken to fully open

itself under the new conditions, and it embodies China’s

commitment to sharing development opportunities and

outcomes with more countries in the world.

BRI is guided by the principle of consultation and

cooperation for shared benefits. It represents an approach

to international cooperation featuring mutual respect,

justice, equity and cooperation for win-win outcomes.

And it is a commitment to multilateralism and an open

global economy. As such, the BRI will help move economic

globalization toward greater openness, inclusiveness,

balance and win-win outcomes.

Second, the BRI has created new impetus and

opportunities for global growth.

BRI aims to address the fundamental issue of promoting

development by enhancing all-round connectivity. It

has helped countries involved to remove development

bottlenecks and implement the UN 2030 Agenda for

Sustainable Development. Latest studies by the World Bank

and other international institutions suggest that the BRI

cooperation will cut the costs of global trade by 1.1 to 2.2

percent and those of trade along the China-Central Asia-

West Asia Economic Corridor by 10.2 percent.

Third, BRI provides a new platform and new

opportunities for fostering closer ties between countries.

By improving connectivity between countries, BRI

cooperation has strengthened economic ties and

people-to-people exchanges between them, thus binding

them closer together with shared interests. BRI aims to

replace estrangement with exchanges between different

civilizations, replace clashes with mutual learning and

replace a sense of superiority with coexistence; and it aims

to boost mutual understanding, mutual respect and mutual

trust among different countries.

BRI is a new path of state-to-state relations based on

dialogue rather than confrontation, partnership rather

than alliance and on mutual learning and enrichment. It

supports the multilateral trading system and embraces an

economic globalization that is more open, inclusive and

balanced so that its benefits can be shared by all.

Q: What are the new opportunities for BRI

cooperation under the new conditions? How will

such cooperation be deepened and substantiated? We

have also heard some different views or even doubts

expressed against this initiative. What is your response

to it?

A: Through six years of hard work, BRI has laid its

groundwork and entered the stage of all-round growth;

it is bearing fruit and will create more opportunities for

cooperation.

Against the backdrop of mounting protectionism and

unilateralism in the world, the BRI principle of consultation

and cooperation for shared benefits has gained wide

recognition. The opportunities created by BRI cooperation

are widely appreciated in the global community. The

opportunities come with the growing complementarity

among the development strategies and plans of all BRI

partners, from the solid gains achieved in BRI cooperation

across the board, and from progress of bilateral, trilateral

and multilateral cooperation. As such, a strong foundation

has been laid for quality BRI cooperation.

The opportunities come with the accelerated

industrialization of a vast number of developing countries,

a process which generates new demands in infrastructure

connectivity and industrial investment, and promises huge

potential for international cooperation.

The opportunities also come with the transition of the

Chinese economy toward quality development. As China

opens its door wider to the world, more opportunities

are being created for other countries to participate in BRI

cooperation and enter the huge Chinese market.

At the seminar marking the BRI’s fifth anniversary

last August, President Xi Jinping highlighted the need to

move BRI cooperation toward quality development. This

is the goal we are striving to achieve. To this end, we will

work vigorously to harness development opportunities,

further enhance the complementarity of the development

strategies of various parties, ensure that projects launched

meet high quality standards, and further promote

international cooperation.

We have noticed that some people have expressed

different views about the BRI, claiming that the Initiative

is China’s geopolitical tool and could cause some countries

to fall into a debt trap. Such views are less than objective

or balanced. They are simply a misunderstanding,

misrepresentation and even biased view of the BRI.

We have stressed on many occasions that the BRI is an

initiative for economic cooperation that supports common

development. All parties involved are equal participants,

they have all contributed to the Initiative and benefited

from it. BRI is open, inclusive and transparent. It does not

harbor any hidden geopolitical agenda, nor is it designed

to form an exclusive circle or impose discriminatory trade

terms on others.

Decisions made under the BRI framework, whether

project selection or investment and financing cooperation,

are all based on full consultation among the parties and on

the basis of conducting due risk assessment and investment

feasibility study.

China and other 27 countries have jointly adopted the

Guiding Principles on Financing the Development of the

Belt and Road, which highlights the need to ensure debt

sustainability in project financing. In case our cooperation

partners face difficulties in servicing debts, China will

properly address this issue through friendly consultation,

and will never press them for debt payment. As a matter

of fact, no country has got trapped in a debt crisis since its

participation in the BRI. Quite on the contrary, it is through

participating in BRI cooperation that many countries have

got out of the trap of “no development”.

Q: China will hold the second BRF in April 2019.

What is the theme of this Forum? What activities will

be held? What outcomes does China expect from this

year’s Forum?

A: The BRF is the top-level platform for international

cooperation under the BRI framework. In May 2017, the

first BRF was successfully held in Beijing, which produced

positive consensus on BRI cooperation and delivered

fruitful outcomes. In response to the wishes of the

participating parties, President Xi announced at the first

Forum that China will hold the second BRF in 2019.

Through consultation with all other parties, we have

decided to hold the second BRF in Beijing in late April

this year. President Xi has sent invitations to the leaders of

relevant countries for participation in the second BRF. The

theme of this year’s BRF is: Belt and Road Cooperation:

Shaping a Brighter Shared Future, and the Forum events

include the opening ceremony, a leaders’ roundtable, a

high-level meeting, thematic forums, a CEO conference

and other side events.

Representatives from over 100 countries, including about

40 leaders of foreign governments, have confirmed their

attendance. As the host country, we will, together with other

Forum parties, take stock of what has been achieved and

draw a blueprint for future cooperation to further enrich

BRI cooperation.

We hope that the participating parties will further enrich

the vision of advancing quality BRI cooperation. We hope

the Forum will send a positive message of strengthening

international economic cooperation, promoting global

growth, and building an open global economy. We hope

that the participating parties will set clear priorities for

cooperation and make concrete progress toward quality

cooperation.

The second BRF is expected to produce a full range

of outcomes, including both governmental cooperation

agreements and initiatives, and concrete cooperation

projects involving participation of the business sector.

All these will be included in a list of deliverables and be

released in due course. We are confident that the second

BRF will produce even greater number of cooperation

outcomes that are of still higher quality.

We hope that the participating parties will strengthen

cooperation mechanisms for quality BRI cooperation. We

hope that the participating parties attending the Forum

will build on successful practices and jointly develop a

multi-tiered cooperation framework.

First, we will improve bilateral cooperation mechanisms

to strengthen the complementarity between the BRI

and the development policies, plans and initiatives

of all participating parties. Second, we will enhance

trilateral cooperation and encourage cooperation among

participating countries in third markets. Third, we will

expand multilateral cooperation, with focus on ensuring

the sound development of the BRF; and we will enhance

cooperation with multilateral economic and financial

institutions to explore multi-party cooperation in specific

areas.

We are convinced that with the concerted efforts of

all the participating parties, the second BRF will deliver

fruitful outcomes, create more driving forces for the

economic growth of both participating countries and

other countries concerned, provide more opportunities

for international economic cooperation, and contribute

more to the vision of a community with a shared future for

mankind and a new type of international relations.

Back to childhood

OVER THE weekend

my mum and stepdad

welcomed two

new additions to their

household.

Two dogs, just in case

you suddenly thought it

was me and Vittoria.

I was so excited to see

how Bubs would react to

seeing them, she’s not had

a lot of experience with

dogs.

We went out to their

house for a whānau dinner

on Sunday night and she

spent as much time as possible

running around after

them and laughing her

head off.

The poor wee things

(they are small dogs), just

new in their environment

and suddenly they were

being hounded (pun) by a

loud mini-human.

All involved loved seeing

her with them, especially

me. And it gave me a wee

epiphany.

Spending a lot of time

with Vittoria has allowed

me to enjoy some of the

simple things that tend to

get left behind in adulthood.

Tell 25-year-old nonparent

me that he would

happily dance along to

children’s music, in public,

just to see a toddler smile

HAPPY PLACE: Vittoria

on a daddy/daughter

trip to the playground.

and he would probably

have just snorted derisively

into his stout.

Now I do it all the time

and love it.

Same with playground

equipment. I haven’t played

on a swing for years, but

with Vittoria I’m on there

swinging beside her using

skills I haven’t had reason

to use in all that time.

I even find myself enjoying

toddler appropriate

shows and cartoons again.

I don’t have to watch The

Wiggles when she does, but

I do. I’ve got all the songs

in my head and totally

don’t actually mind.

It’s nice to enjoy some

VITTORIA

& Matt

news online a

childish fun with my

daughter and have a normal

excuse to get back to

things I can’t remember

doing but obviously were

happy non-memories (is

that a thing?)

I once walked in on a

very drunk mate playing

with some Transformers

toys by himself on the floor

on the wrong side of 21.

Clearly his happy place,

not as good an excuse as

having a kid, sorry bro.

Playing with toys on the

floor is my bread and butter

now and it’s completely

normal.

So I’d best make the most

of my ticket to enjoy a

second pseudo-childhood

because it won’t be long

before Vittoria grows out

of it and tells me to grow

up.

Taking opera to a wider audience

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

HAYDN RAWSTRON has led a

distinguished musical career.

When he was 19 he left

Christchurch for England to be

an Oxford University undergraduate

studying musicology and

specialising in opera.

In 1977 he established his own

agency in London.

The agency, Haydn Rawstron

Ltd, has helped build the worldwide

careers of international

opera singers and musicians

including Dame Malvina Major,

conductor William Southgate

and Dame Gillian Weir.

In 2009 when Rawstron sold

his company, he was awarded the

New Zealand Order of Merit for

his cultural heritage work.

But for Rawstron, the achievement

he takes the greatest delight

from is his invention of a new

form of opera which was created

as a knee-jerk reaction to the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

Seven years ago, Rawstron

along with his wife and international

opera singer Dorothee

Jansen created a new format of

opera – narropera.

Narropera is a narrated opera

formed to make the art form of

opera more accessible to wider

audiences.

The purpose is narropera is to

clarify the story of the opera in

enough detail so the whole of the

story behind the music comes

alive,” Rawstron said.

Each narropera consists of

10 to 12 pieces of music carefully

selected from the original opera,

shortening the performance.

“It is quite a journey uphill

. . . after seven years we have

already done 83 performances in

a format nobody has heard of,”

Rawstron said.

Now, The Narropera Trio,

made up of Rawstron, Jansen

and French violinist Floriane

Peycelon, will perform a

narropera version of Mozart’s

The Marriage of Figaro.

The performance is part of the

Lansdown Festival of Narropera,

which is a by-product of the

earthquake.

The Marriage of Figaro, which

will be performed this week first

House.

premiered in 1786.

But while researching and

rearranging the performance,

Rawstron discovered Mozart and

his librettist made significant

changes to the original version

for the revival of the show in

Vienna in 1789.

Rawstron said these major

changes remain relatively unknown

today to singers, conductors

and stage directors.

The Narropera will

present many of the musical

Tour of New Zealand

ticked off bucket list

• By Julia Evans

CHRIS TODD has ticked

the Tour of New Zealand

off her bucket list.

The former Christchurch

Boys’ High School teacher

has 27 tumours called “the

fockers” and says she lives

her life to the fullest “to

spite them” – which is why

she completed the tour.

She didn’t cycle the full

630km of the tour, she said

she had to sit parts out

because of the weather and

her own health.

But she said while

“conquering the fockers”

and making it over the

Crown Range is her physical

favourite, she was most

proud of being raising

the profile of the Unicorn

Foundation – which supports

people with her form

of cancer.

“I was proud to raise

awareness, just to give other

people the opportunity

for treatment,” she said.

Since her diagnosis, the

active Sumner resident

has been doing everything

in her power to finish her

bucket list, which has included

several trips to cycle

the Alpes d’Huez section of

the Tour de France, as well

as making it up Evans Pass

and Sumner Rd.

But while Miss Todd

had been in remission, the

cancer has come back and

she hasn’t been able to eat

properly and has been on

an IV.

“When I was lying on

the IV drip, I thought what

the hell am I doing. But I’m

really pleased I did.”

finish of the

Looking for a career change?

Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector and is growing fast. Over 9,000

new jobs are expected to be created over the next two years*. To fuel this growth,

New Zealand needs more people, across many industries, with a grounding in tech

to fill the many exciting and varied roles.

SIGNAL ICT Grad School develops tech professionals to meet that growth via SHIFT,

enabling more people to enter this dynamic and diverse sector. Not all tech careers

are about coding! Creative, business and design skills are all in demand.

*NZ Tech Digital Skills Survey 2017

SHIFT TO A TECH CAREER

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who

are seeking a new career path who may or may not have a tech

background. Open to degree holders in any discipline, SHIFT

learners have come from diverse backgrounds such as medicine,

philosophy, sociology, commerce, geography, marketing,

engineering and humanities.

If you already have a tech related degree then you can expand

your expertise by focusing on a new area of tech, while gaining

valuable industry engagement and networking opportunities.

PARTNERING WITH INDUSTRY

SHIFT uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world

industry experience to produce graduates with a solid base

of core computing skills, as well as communication and

employability skills required in today’s collaborative workplaces.

SHIFT includes opportunities to meet and work with local

tech industry employers; industry visits, group projects

designed and mentored by industry, and a 200-hour industry

placement, where you work within the organisation on a project

to add value to your host, and to showcase your capabilities.

OPPORTUNITIES

With tech roles existing in nearly every area from aviation to zoology,

career possibilities are extensive. Through the SHIFT programme,

learners can focus on software design and development, or allied

roles, such as business analyst, data scientist, web designer,

project manager, user experience designer, technical writer, sales

and client support . . . and the list goes on.

Diversity of background and experiences is welcomed in the tech

sector. It is strongly recognised that it takes many viewpoints to best

design products that meet customer requirements, and tech firms are

actively recruiting to address gender and ethnic imbalances across

their employees.

The next SHIFT intake commences July 2019 and

scholarships are available.

Call SIGNAL today on 0800 990 024 and start your

shift into NZ’s fastest-growing sector, or come

along to our next Tech Careers & Pizza Nights on 30

April, 5.30pm-7pm. Register at signal.ac.nz/events.

Harry Taylor is a Masters of Management

graduate, who studied changes in workplaces

and societies around the globe. “When I realised

the dominating role tech plays in these changes,

and I knew I had to be part of the future. SHIFT

stood out as the perfect getaway for me into

the tech sector. A professional setting where

I’d be exposed to the wide range of sklills and

positions vital to the industry.”

Harry has just joined the RCG Creations

team full-time as a Software Developer, after

proving his worth during his industry project.

BROMLEY’S ODOUR issues

could soon be solved through

mobile phones.

Environment Canterbury and

the city council have been working

together to investigate the

ongoing issue of bad smells from

industrial activity in the area.

Now ECan has beta-tested an

app, which would let residents

and industries file and respond

to odour complaints in real time.

ECan manager zone delivery

Paul Hulse said the public will

be able to use the app to report

how odour is impacting their

environment and amenity.

They can advise us where

they were when they smelt the

odour, the intensity of the smell,

what it smelt like and how long

the odour lasted for. They can

also see other reports of odour

on a real-time map,” he said.

But Mr Hulse said the project

was in the very early stage.

A prototype was piloted with

previous complainants to help

understand localised odour issues.

The app, while promising,

needs further development and

testing before a decision can be

made as to if the solution will be

implemented for full community

use/rollout.”

Bromley has long had an

odour problem.

The organics processing plant

Living Earth on Metro Place,

which deals with the contents of

green bins, has been the source

of most of the complaints.

In 2016, a putrid stench

wafted over the suburb plaguing

residents and forcing Bromley

School to close for two days,

though the source was never

determined.

Mr Hulse said the community

would be able to notify ECan

quickly and easily if they are

having issues which would increase

its response time.

“It will also assist us to rule

in and rule out potential odour

emitting sources by running

the app notification against our

news online at www.star.kiwi

App for bad smells

BAD SMELL: Environment Canterbury is beta-testing an

app which would help address ongoing odour issues in

Bromley, such as from Living Earth.

wind data and other public notifications.”

Potential odour emitting

industries in the area will also be

able to use the app.

“We have made contact with

many businesses in the Bromley

area to find out what potential

odours they emit – we can use

this information in conjunction

with the app to rule in and rule

out potential odour sources,” Mr

Hulse said.

“We are also inviting potential

odour emitting industries to

meetings to discuss what work

we can do in conjunction with

industry to improve odour in the

area.”

Tug Lyttelton’s licence

too late for passenger

cruises this season

• By Louis Day

TUG LYTTELTON has been

given the all-clear to carry

passengers.

However, it has come too late

for the 112-year-old vessel to hold

a passenger cruise this season.

The tug has been issued its

certificate of survey, which is a

subset of requirements for the

passenger service licence.

Tug Lyttelton Preservation

Society head stoker Mike Bruce

said the first passenger cruise

in more than three years would

happen in October at the start of

next season.

“I’m frustrated it took so long

but at the same time absolutely

thrilled that we can take her out

and enjoy her. That’s what it is all

about, getting out in the sea, the

feeling of camaraderie you get

on board with the crew and your

mates,” he said.

The passenger cruise was

originally scheduled to take

place in December but was

pushed back to January and then

February and then to next season

due to delays with the passenger

service licence.

The preservation society is now

struggling financially as it has not

DISAPPOINTMENT: Tug

held a passenger cruise in more

than three years.

“We are under extreme

pressure, we are going for some

grants, some of the members are

supporting us, but we have just

got a bill for our public liability

insurance for $6000, we just don’t

have the money to pay for it.”

The hull of the vessel also needs

repainting, which is expected to

cost about $20,000.

Honour to speak at university graduation ceremony

I WAS honoured to speak at

the first Canterbury University

graduation ceremony to be

held at the Town Hall since the

earthquakes.

It was personally special

for me as I did not attend my

graduation 35 years ago. It

remains one of my regrets, not

for me, but for my parents,

especially my mother.

THey took such pleasure in

their children’s achievements

and rightly so, for they had built

the foundations on what those

achievements were built. I paid

tribute to all the people who

had played such a role in the

graduate’s lives.

The next event was the

return of Dress for Success to

the central city. Established

in Christchurch in 2003, this

has always been one of my

Mayor

Lianne Dalziel

favourite charities. Dress for

Success’ mission is to empower

women to achieve economic

independence by providing

a network of support,

professional attire and the

development tools to help

women thrive in work and in

life. The name says it all. Dress

for Success. I love the idea that

we can pass on clothes to help

women enter or re-enter the

workforce.

It’s one of those invisible

barriers – not having the

wherewithal to buy the kinds

of clothes that can help you

walk into an interview with

confidence. But the clothes

are just the beginning –

the outward sign of the

empowerment model at play.

And finally, at the time

of writing this column, I

am looking forward to the

reopening of An-Nur Child

Care Centre – this is run by

the Al Noor Charitable

Trust.

They want me to speak of

their resilience and I shall do

so, with admiration for how

they have responded to these

challenging times.

ROAST LEG OF LAMB

WITH ROSEMARY AND

GARLIC

Ingredients

2kg leg of lamb

1 bulb garlic

Large bunch rosemary

Sea salt and black pepper

2 carrots, roughly chopped

3 white onions, quartered

250ml dry white wine

Olive oil

For the mint sauce:

1 Tbsp caster sugar

3 Tbsp white wine vinegar

6 sprigs mint, leaves only, finely

chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 deg C.

Use a small, sharp knife to make

12-14 slits all over the lamb. Peel

two garlic cloves and slice them

into shards. Roughly squash the

remaining garlic and put into the

bottom of a large roasting tin.

Push a few slivers of garlic and

small sprigs of rosemary down

into each slit in the lamb and

season with plenty of salt and

pepper.

Put the carrots and onions

into the roasting tin, drizzle with

olive oil and season with salt and

pepper. Lay the lamb on top and

roast in the preheated oven for

45min.

For the mint sauce, mix

together the sugar and vinegar

until the sugar is dissolved. Add

the mint and mix well. Season

with salt and pepper and transfer

to the fridge to steep.

Remove the lamb from the

oven, pour in the wine then

return to the oven and roast for a

further 45min.

When cooked, remove the

lamb from the oven and transfer

to a board. Cover with foil and

leave to rest for 15-20min.

Carve the lamb into thin slices

and serve with the mint sauce

and roasted vegetables.

LOW AND SLOW PORK

LEG ROAST

Ingredients

3kg leg of pork

2 Tbsp coriander seeds

1 Tbsp white peppercorns

6 fresh bay leaves

Extra virgin olive oil

6 onions

½ bunch of fresh sage

½ bunch of fresh rosemary

30g plain flour

1 big bunch of fresh flat-leaf

parsley

1-2 Tbsp mustard

Directions

Preheat the oven 250 deg C.

Score the pork leg with a sharp

knife in a zig-zag pattern.

Bash the coriander seeds,

peppercorns and two teaspoons

of sea salt until fine in a pestle

and mortar. Add the bay leaves

and bash again, then muddle in

a lug of oil to form a loose paste.

Rub the paste all over the

pork, making sure you get it into

all the nooks and crannies.

Peel and halve the onions,

scatter into a large roasting tray

and place the scored pork on

top. Roast for 35-40min, or until

you have a lovely crisp crackling,

then turn the oven down to 170

deg C.

Slow-cook the leg for 3.5

hours, or until the meat is easily

pulled apart.

When the time is up, pick and

dress the sage and rosemary

leaves with oil and scatter them

over the pork. Pop it back into

the oven and cook until the

herbs are crispy.

Remove the leg to board,

cover with tin foil and allow to

rest while you make the gravy.

Place the roasting tray on the

hob over medium heat, add the

flour and stir it into the juices so

you get a sticky paste.

Slowly add a little water until

you have a lovely rich sauce.

Pour the contents of the tray

into a jug or bowl and blitz to

a sauce with a stick blender.

Return to the pan, pick, finely

chop and add the parsley, along

with the mustard and stir well.

Season to perfection.

Serve the roast pork with the

sauce.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question came

from Marty. Congratulations!

What varieties of eating apple

Q perform best using the

espalier method of growing?

What other fruit trees would

perform, given that we are

in coastal Canterbury and

the plantings will be facing

east, with full exposure to

the Canterbury easterly.

A

Choose apple varieties that are spurbearing

(fruit grows on small thorn-like

shoots called spurs), like Granny Smith.

Non-spur bearing varieties won’t produce

as much fruit. If possible, choose an apple

that is grafted onto EM9 rootstock. Although it’s dwarf

rootstock, it’s exceptionally vigorous, producing fastgrowing

laterals that are perfect for espaliering. Also

consider planting an early season apple to extend

your harvesting time like Cox’s Orange, Pacific Rose

or Royal Gala. Other fruit trees to espalier are:

• Pears A superb tree to espalier as they are spur

bearing. Need two trees that pollinate each other

• Plums Plant either self-fertilising varieties eg:

Woolsons Early or Louisa or plant varieties that

pollinate each other

• Nashi Needs two different varieties for pollination

• Persimmons Grow best in an espaliered form, try

the Fuyu variety

• Fig trees Very vigorous in growth, producing heavy

crops after only a few years. Prune hard in

autumn as they produce fruit on the new

season’s growth

For growing advice and information on products visit www.daltons.co.nz

Be in to WIN a Daltons Luscious Lawn Care Pack !!

A successful, healthy, green lawn takes regular maintenance and fertilising. Autumn or spring

are the best times to sow a new lawn or tackle any lawn problems while the soil is warm. When

mowing lawns, catch your clippings and remove them – add them to your compost bin in small

and regular amounts, or work it into the existing soil in your flower or vegetable garden.

We have a Daltons Premium Lawn care pack valued at over $80 to giveaway which

contains Daltons Premium Lawn Fertiliser, Daltons Lawn Patching Gold, Daltons

Premium Lawn Soil, and a pair of comfortable, versatile Red Back gardening gloves from

Omni Products - www.omniproducts.co.nz. Everything you need to care for your lawn!

$80

PRIZE

PACK!

Choose a sunny, well-drained position with a fence,

wall or strong wires attached to sturdy stakes to carry

the weight of a mature espalier fruit tree. Leave room

for the tree to grow up to three metres either side

of the trunk.

Select a tree (1-1.5 years) with a straight trunk

and evenly spaced branches. Tie the first

branches down horizontally, about 500-

600mm above ground level.

The next pair of branches should be 350-

400mm above the lower branches for

adequate air movement, full sun penetration

and room for fruiting spurs to develop.

Water new trees deeply and feed with

Daltons Garden Time Fruit and Citrus

Fertiliser in early spring and every six

weeks till mid-December, recommencing late

February till late April.

For the first 1-2 years after planting, remove

young fruit so the tree’s energy is focused on

vegetative growth.

A burst of colour for winter

• By Henri Ham

EASTER IS here, and this year it

also marks the middle of autumn.

Although I still feel like I’m only

just farewelling summer, it’s nice

to be able to slacken off from my

watering programme and think

about my winter garden.

Luckily the end of warmer

weather doesn’t also mean the end

of bright colourful flowers in the

garden. Now’s the perfect time to

inject new bursts of colour – and

the easiest way is to plant some

pansies.

The brightly coloured overlapping

petals of the pansy cheer up

any garden spot. They’re cute,

yet bold, come in a rainbow of

colours and, best of all, are one of

the easiest flowers to grow.

Pansies flower right from autumn

through spring, often when

it feels like there’s not much colour

happening in your garden. They’re

extremely hardy – surviving frosts,

wind and rain. Just make sure you

get them in before it gets too cold,

and you’ll see that they are truly a

plant-and-forget flower.

They make great garden beds,

borders, and are perfect for pots.

Pansies also look really attractive

when planted in between larger

plants.

Giant pansies span up to 10cm

across and grow slightly higher

than your average pansies too –

up to 20cm high. Mixed varieties

are perfect for an array of pots,

hanging baskets or as a multicoloured

garden border.

When you’ve got your seedlings,

look for a spot in your

garden that receives morning (or

all day) sun, with good drainage.

After our hot summer, dig

in some compost and fertiliser to

enrich the soil.

To plant your seedlings, dig

little holes, 3cm deep and around

15cm apart.

Once they’re flowering, pick

them to encourage more blooms.

The more you pick, the more

will grow. Arrange your pansies

in a vase with some interesting

foliage, to bring bursts of colour

into your house this winter.

BRIGHT: Mixed varieties are perfect for a multi-coloured

garden border.

A world-class education and

supportive all-girl learning

environment

Selwyn House School offers a world-class

education with a talented teaching staff

and small class sizes which are set within a

future-focused, nurturing environment. An

extensive range of educational, sporting and

cultural opportunities are offered for girls in

Years 1 - 8.

A supportive all-girl learning environment

encourages girls to take risks without fear of

failure and develops their love of learning.

They become confident, compassionate, articulate

and determined young women who

have the values, skills, and attributes needed

to not only achieve their goals but to make a

difference in their communities. Our teachers

ensure girls are inspired and committed

to learning as they develop their unique way

of learning and achieving. The focus across

Years 1 - 8 is on the growth of the developing

girl encompassing intellectual, social,

physical, emotional, and cultural needs.

Selwyn House is committed to providing

a continuum of international education. The

combination of the International Baccalaureate

Primary Years Programme (PYP) and

our future-focused STEAM and Mechatronics

curriculum ensures girls are equipped

to face a continually changing world with

confidence and enthusiasm. We focus on

instilling strong foundations which can be

successfully built upon. Core learning in

reading, writing and mathematics is a priority.

Specialist programmes in Art, Creative

Writing, Leadership, Mechatronics, Music,

Performing Arts, Physical Education, Science,

Spanish and Swimming play key roles

to further enhancing learning.

Selwyn House provides each girl with

a personalised learning experience. Each

classroom and specialist teacher has the

time to foster meaningful relationships with

each student. Due to our comprehensive

learning environment, our girls are highly

skilled, stand out among their peers and

are prepared for a successful transition to

secondary school.

Selwyn House’s nurturing environment is

apparent in all aspects of the school. In our

modern and safe, family-oriented Boarding

House, girls are supported by dedicated staff

and tutors. Girls from across New Zealand

and internationally fondly call the Boarding

House, their ‘home away from home’ and

easily form a sisterhood with others.

We believe in the strength of tradition, the

promise of the future and the power of education.

Choosing the right school

for your Tamariki

When choosing the right school for our

tamariki we often go by the ‘feeling’ we

have when we visit, as much as by the

programmes that schools have on offer.

The world demands fewer people who can

do repetitive tasks and more people who

can think creatively and critically. That’s

why our vision, our aspiration, as a school

is to be ‘A centre of creative excellence’

in everything that we do, whether visual

arts or chemistry, volleyball or music,

management or curriculum organisation.

In doing this we haven’t forgotten the

importance of the strong relationships

that we build with all of our students, and

the importance of individualising learning

pathways so that we come as close as we

can to meeting every individual student’s

needs. Hornby High School’s feeling is

one of positive relationships that support

learning. Students often comment that we

feel like whānau, like family. This all takes

place within our amazing new facilities,

some of the most modern in the country.

These facilities are allowing us to develop

a curriculum that caters for individual

needs, that supports student passions, and

helps our students to grow their heart for

their community, while emphasising our

values and promoting the ethos of kindness,

of manaaki. We are also committed

to engaging with whānau in any and

every way we can. I personally invite you

to come along and meet with our skilled

staff, and the amazing young people who

make Hornby High School such a wonderful

place to be.

Papanui High School - Preparing

students for their future

“Our aim is simple... to provide the best education

possible for every student”

Giving students the opportunity to study

from an innovative and broad curriculum is

critical to providing each student a pathway

that meets their individual needs. We allow for

a greater range and flexibility in subject choice

including the utilization of the secondary/

tertiary interface. This reinforces the philosophy

underpinning personalised learning

and is strongly supported by understanding

our students’ interests, passions, talents, and

ultimately their career aspirations.

We understand that for effective learning to

take place, it has to be implemented in such a

way that students will be highly engaged. The

school does this in a ‘forward thinking’ way

by creating learning environments that allow

our students to see value in what they do and

achieve. Papanui “PRIDE” is what we represent

and we demonstrate this by having young

adults leave our school as confident learners

who have gained the appropriate qualifications

and social skills to become valued contributing

members of society.

All that we do here is reinforced by positive

relationships, an ethos of caring, cultural

responsiveness, inclusion, and high expectations

– what we call “Our Full service Model”.

The school highly values the connectedness of

curricular and co-curricular learning. We have

a philosophical understanding that the holistic

development of the student is critical to their

individual success.

The school has worked hard to consolidate

recent initiatives to ensure sustained and continuous

improvement. You are invited to view

our website, school charter, ERO report, and/

or contact the school for more information.

We look forward to welcoming all prospective

students and their families/whanau to visit

our school.

Middle School (Years 7-10) Proving Successful

Our vision at Hillmorton High School is “With

our communities, we nurture well-rounded

and accomplished young people, prepared and

ready for life”.

Our Middle School culture of collaboration

is seeing our vision become a reality where our

students are quickly developing the skills and

attitudes needed for success in the 21st century,

with our “learners are at the centre”.

With construction of our Middle School

building about to start on our tennis courts,

there will be no interruption to learning during

the build. The building itself meets our brief of

flexibility with single cell classrooms which can

be opened into each other and onto an indoor

street. We are excited about this new learning

environment where students will be actively

engaged in all aspects of their learning.

Our Middle School is already proven in

developing young people who are academically

successful, they are leaders and they continue

to love learning, all within a collaborative and

highly safe, nurturing, warm environment.

Christchurch Girls’ High School –

Te Kura o Hine Waiora

Founded in 1877, Christchurch Girls’ High

School - Te Kura o Hine Waiora benefits

greatly from 140 years of proud educational

achievement. It is

a learning environment

that values its

rich tradition while

embracing innovation

and adapting

to the modern

world. It is a place

where each girl is

challenged to be a

discerning thinker,

who is comfortable with the concept of

hard work and is open to possibility.

All the programmes at Christchurch

Girls’ High School are designed with

girls in mind. We want our students to

explore the possibilities that are on offer

so that when they leave school they will

have choices and can determine their own

future and not have it predetermined by

others.

We prepare our students by asking them

to embrace tradition, innovation and

excellence and to appreciate the

importance of each in shaping

the future. The school values,

developed by the students

themselves, are an integral part

of the education we offer:

Christian Integrated Schools in

Christchurch working together

Working together for the good of students

and families has been a successful

recipe for Christian Integrated Schools in

Christchurch.

The Christian School Network has been

in existence for over ten years. Aidanfield

Christian School, Emmanuel Christian

School, Hillview Christian School and

Middleton Grange School decided in

2005 that there was much to be gained

by working together cooperatively. They

recognised opportunities to share successful

teaching practice, curriculum

development initiatives across a wide

spectrum of school operations as well as

cooperatively strengthening their special

Christian Character. They recognised that

their ability to serve students and families

was greatly enhanced by working together

in a close and trusting relationship.

The success of the network has seen

other schools wanting to join in. Early

in the piece Rangiora New Life School

became part of the network. The schools

Formation is at the heart of the education

Middleton Grange School provides – a

whole of life formation. We see learning

as holistic; it aims to instruct the mind,

shape the heart and equip the hand. The

root of formation is faith and so Middleton

Grange not only provides a first rate

general education but also biblically based

teaching in the Christian faith.

Formation of the mind is not primarily

intellectual contemplation or conceptual

mastery but a learning that nurtures

wisdom and discernment. It is a learning

that challenges the mind to think, discern

and critique the ideas and theories pupils

are exposed to from a Christian perspective.

Middleton Grange’s learning culture

allows the formation of the heart so that it

joined together to support the genesis

of Ashburton Christian School and also

culminated in the start up of a brand new

school in Rolleston in 2015.

The schools have developed interlocking

enrolment schools which assists in

providing transparent pathways in Christian

education from new entrant through

to Year 13.

A further strength has been a cooperative

engagement with the Ministry of Education

who have been pivotal in assisting

the networks successful development.

First rate general education

and biblically based teaching

shapes the character of each pupil to develop

habits of righteousness, compassion

and integrity. This formation of the mind

and heart generates responsiveness. We

want our pupils to engage in the society

they live in, to be of benefit and blessing in

a practical way.

For Middleton Grange School, while our

academic results are of the highest level,

what is highly prized, is that our pupils

exercise wisdom, serve the community

and promote the well-being of others. It is

about forming the pupil to be the person

God created them to be.

All of this is summed up in the school

motto: Character, Excellence, Service for

the Glory of God.

We are known for

our quality education as a compassionate community

in which the God-given gifts and talents of pupils are nurtured and celebrated

All New for Avonside

at Ōrua Paeroa

The Star Thursday April 18 2019

Shirley Boys’ High

School at Ōrua Paeroa

A new school, a new location, and a new

uniform! What a fabulous year for Avonside

Girls’ High school as a new chapter in

the school’s 90 plus year history is written

this year. As Avonside Girls’ High School

moves into its new home on Travis Road

at the beginning of term 2, it will take with

it its traditions, culture, history and values

and its focus on working with every student

to help her identify her strengths and

develop her talents so that she can flourish

in her future.

Just over 1000 girls will move onto the

new site in Travis Road and experience

learning in New Zealand’s newest secondary

school buildings. The campus which

also includes a satellite unit of Ferndale

School, is New Zealand’s first ever co-location

of a state girls’ school and a state boys’

school sharing the same site and some

key facilities and yet delivering teaching

and learning within their own single-sex

learning environments.

One look inside the impressive entrance

foyer reveals an exciting campus with

fabulous facilities to enhance learning for

students.

In the front section of the school lie the

shared facilities, boasting the reception

and administrative centre for both schools,

a spacious library, a cultural space, two

theatres, a cafeteria with indoor and outdoor

seating, and student kitchen facilities

alongside a commercial kitchen for teaching

senior

Hospitality

courses.

The design

of the school

then separates

into

two separate

schools each

designed

around its

own courtyard.

The

school is

organised by

learning areas,

denoting the school’s support of subject

discipline knowledge and skills, yet with

adjacencies that provide opportunities for

learning to be connected across learning

areas for students.

Avonside supports the development of

the whole student with a strong ako programme

delivered within a vertical form

structure and wonderful opportunities for

involvement beyond classroom learning

time. The superb facilities in the new campus

certainly enhance those opportunities

for our students.

Avonside Girls’ High School has embraced

this opportunity to provide this

exciting new brand of 21st century style

single-sex education – the best of both

worlds!

Finally after 8 years of unstinting effort,

Shirley Boys’ is in its new home, one that

features state of the art facilities for teaching

and learning in the 21st Century.

The new campus features a Performing

Arts Centre, full size all weather turf,

sports fields, the largest school gymnasium

in the city as well as traditional classrooms

and modern flexible spaces designed to

meet the needs of all of its 1250 young

Shirley men.

Shirley Boys’ High School,

Kiwi Soul Global Vision

At Shirley Boys’ High School, students

are encouraged to participate in a vast array

of sporting and cultural activities and

in all of these areas they are expected to

prepare themselves for action and success

on the world

stage, while

also being

encouraged

to retain and

strengthen

their own

cultural

roots.

Shirley

Boys’ High

School

encourages

students to

strive for

personal

excellence. Learning occurs both inside

and outside the classroom, reflecting the

desire of the school to focus on teaching

the whole person to ensure a lifelong

desire for self-improvement.

At Shirley Boys’ this is known

as “BTB – Better than Before”.

BTB leads to achievement,

which can be as modest as getting

fit for a sport or improving

a test score or learning to sing

in a choir. BTB can also be as

spectacular as achieving a Premier

New Zealand Academic

Scholar Award (awarded to the

Top 10 academic students in

NZ).

SCHOOL OPEN DAYS

Creating an optimum

learning environment

Cultural diversity,

compassion and respect

Riccarton High School believes

in creating an optimum

learning environment that

embraces the concept of

blended learning – an approach

that combines effective

styles of traditional teaching

and learning with the best of

what new technologies can

provide.

As principal Neil Haywood

explains, “This environment

enables all our students, including

those with special learning needs

and challenges, to fully and equally participate

in a quality learning experience. It

includes using our learning environments

in flexible ways to meet the individual

needs of our diverse range of students.

“We have a clear vision of what we are

aiming to achieve with our students –

successful young people who are independent

lifelong learners, and who are

caring, responsible, involved and globally

connected.

“Our strength comes from a genuine

belief in the Riccarton Way - Te Wairua o

Pῡtaringamotu and its associated values

of commitment, honesty, respect and excellence.

This forms the basis of how our

school community acts, thinks and relates

to others and operates within a supportive

and inclusive environment that recognises

and celebrates diversity.”

Student voice and community consultation

play a vital part in the creation

of learning pathways at Riccarton High

School – pathways that also develop

resiliency, collaboration, creativity and

communication skills, which are essential

elements in creating well-rounded young

men and women, Mr Haywood says.

“Our success in academic, sporting and

cultural endeavours is a result of our desire

to support and challenge our students

to be the best they can be.”

An open evening will be held on Thursday

16 May from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. In a

change from previous years, visitors will

have the opportunity visit the different

curriculum areas of the school over the

course of the evening. They will be able to

see small teams of RHS students involved

in activities in each subject area and staff

will be on hand for discussion and questions.

All are welcome.

At a recent public meeting in our school,

a parent was able to talk about the reasons

his family chose Mairehau High School for

their child. He said that they had looked at

Welcome to Hagley’s

Junior College!

What’s important

at Hagley, a school

with a 160 year old

history which makes

it nearly as old as

Christchurch itself?

Our values matter.

Those values are seen

in the relationships

our teachers build

with each of our

students. It’s how

we treat our students

that sets Hagley

apart, valuing them as individuals – that is the Hagley way. What

does that mean for our students? They feel that teachers are

interested in them and care about their learning, they feel that

they’re experiencing success – and much more.

We’re often asked, what makes Hagley different? We have a

culture like no other.

No one wears a uniform and everyone’s on a first name basis.

But that’s just for starters. Students come to Hagley because

they’re treated with respect, accepted for who they are as unique

individuals. They know it’s cool to be different!

We love our students aiming high and doing well. We believe

there is no single stereotype for success. At Hagley being

successful comes in many shapes and forms.

We want you to feel excited about coming here. We look

forward to you being part of Hagley’s 2020 Junior College!

Booking a spot with

special needs kids

• By Gordon Findlater

FORMER TALL Black

Ed Book has left the

sunshine of Nelson

where he is recognised as

a Giants legend to help

special needs kids in

Christchurch.

Book – a 210cm centre –

and his family have moved

south after he was offered

a position at Allenvale

School in Papanui as the

lead teacher of physical

education, health and

education outside the

classroom. Book has been

working with special needs

kids for 18 years and previously

worked at Waimea

College.

“It’s something that I’ve

always wanted to do ever

since I was at high school. I

remember one time walking

into school late because

I missed the bus, I was

walking in with one of my

friends and this door was

open in the middle of the

school. I heard all of this

noise coming out of it and

I was like ‘what’s that?’ and

my friend told me that’s

where the retards are,” said

Book.

I was at school for 18

months and I never realised

these kids existed in

our school environment

and it just totally blew

me away . . . from there I

always said once I get older

I would like to be a special

needs teacher.”

school alongside Reuben

Thorne (rugby) and Peter

Fulton (cricket). He will

coach Christ’s junior side

and also assist Ben Sheat

with the senior A side.

His two sons Joshua

and Nick – who are both

talented up-and-coming

basketballers – are attending

Christ’s. They are

also part of the Mainland

Eagles academy which

helps young players craft

their game to a level which

will help them gain United

States’ college scholarships.

“It’s a bonus for them

being here because there’s

more opportunities for

them to develop as a player

and to play against top

competition,” said Book.

He has worked with the

programme during school

holiday camps in the past,

but is now coaching at

their early morning sessions

during the school

term.

“It’s a great programme

here with the Eagles which

is giving young players

a chance to develop at

an elite level. I’ve been

involved with it since Mark

[Dickel] got it up-andrunning.

I thought it was

a great opportunity to give

back to the basketball community.

Hopefully, I can

offer something to players

coming through,” he said.

His daughter Aimee has

just finished her first year

of US college basketball

playing for Cal State Fullerton

where she averaged

9.7 points per game and

shot 44 three pointers at an

impressive 43.2 per cent.

Book moved to New

Zealand in 1994 and

played in the NBL until

2007. He was the league’s

scoring champion in 1996,

and won an NBL championship

with the Nelson

Giants in his final season

in 2007.

He played a pivotal role

in the Tall Blacks team

which famously finished

From scoring tries to school teacher

• By Gordon Findlater

JAMES KERR has gone from

winning Super Rugby titles

with the Crusaders to winning

possum throwing and pig

running competitions at a rural

North Island primary school.

Kerr played 26 games for the

Crusaders between 1997 and

1999 and scored six tries, including

one of the franchises most

iconic – stealing the ball and

scoring the game-winning try

against the Blues at Eden Park in

the 1998 Super 12 final. For the

past eight years Kerr has been

a teacher at Te Ranga School

midway between Tauranga and

Rotorua.

“It’s a rural school. They’re all

real kids, they all hunt and play

hard. If they cut themselves or

whack themselves they just get

on with business,” said Kerr.

Kerr was born in Sydney. His

father is Australian while his

mother grew up near Gisborne.

His early years were spent watching

the Balmain Tigers and

idolising the likes of Garry Jack

and Paul Sironen.

After moving to Gisborne at

the start of his secondary school

years Kerr went onto play first

XV rugby for Gisborne Boys’

High School. In his last year of

secondary school in 1994 he

also helped Poverty Bay finish

runner-up in the third division

of the NPC.

This resulted in Kerr becoming

a sought after prospect which

had his fielding phone calls from

different provinces looking to

nurture his talent.

“I remember getting a phone

call from Zinzan Brooke while I

was at school asking what I was

looking at doing next year. Even

Shag [Steve Hansen] gave me a

call. All those things were in operation

and I had no idea really,

I just thought it was awesome

these guys were ringing me,” said

Kerr.

SPEEDSTER: James Kerr was a prominent figure on the

Crusaders wing between 1997 and 1999. ​

Kerr made the decision to join

Auckland and the Blues in 1995.

Within three weeks of arriving

in Auckland he was in Bloemfontein

playing Super 10.

Following winning the Super

12 title with the Blues in 1996

Kerr moves to Christchurch to

join the Crusaders to gain more

game time with Jonah Lomu

and Joeli Vidiri above him in the

pecking order.

“When I arrived we were the

slowest and most unfit of the

teams. Within three or four

years all the stats had reversed,”

he said.

“We had a really good set of

players. All of the players who

were colts or under-19 guys that

couldn’t get into the provincial

unions anywhere else all came

down to one area and they’re

taken in. I think that’s why

Auckland rugby blew out the

back,” said Kerr.

The run into the 1998 Super

12 final is one of Kerr’s favourite

memories with the team as they

won two vital games in South

Africa to finish the round-robin

before the 36-32 semi-final win

over the Sharks at Lancaster

Park. All that was left to do was

possum hunt.

for Kerr to score the game winning

try he’s best remembered

for.

“We thought maybe at best we

could level with Auckland. We

just stuck in there, I remember

with 20 minutes to go everyone

was gone, but we just kept pushing

and pushing. At the end we

could hardly walk or even speak,

it was like we were floating,” he

Kerr.

Kerr moved to the Chiefs in

2000 and played for Marlborough

in the NPC the same year.

He also played for two years in

Italy for L’Aquila Rugby before

two seasons for Taranaki and a

final season with Poverty Bay in

2004.

Following graduating from

Waikato University, Kerr began

his new career as a primary

school teacher.

“I’m not sure if I would have

gone back and done it again

knowing how much you get paid

and what the actual workload is

now, but it’s a good job and I’ve

got two young boys as well so the

hours are good,” he said.

Kerr has been asked to coach

club sides in recent years. However,

with a three and five-yearold

son he is waiting until the

time is right to commit to a role.

For now his mind is on the Te

Ranga School’s biggest activity of

the year coming up next term –

the annual pig and possum hunt.

The fundraiser sees locals hunt

for pigs and possums over several

days before a day of activities

at the school.

“When I first started we used

real possums, but then an Auckland

school did a similar thing and

one person complained, so now we

throw a fake one,” he said.

“You’ve got to grab the tail and

either spin like a discus and let it

go at the right angle.

Kerr has won two possum

throwing titles. However, the

former speedster is yet to claim a

title in the pig run.

“You chuck it over your back

and run up and down a hill. Our

principal has won a few times

but he uses rugby boots which is

an illegal system,” said Kerr.

Will Jordan’s big chance for world stage

COULD WILL Jordan be a

World Cup bolter?

The 21-year-old fullback’s

introduction to Super Rugby has

been nothing short of electrifying

and after a breakout Mitre 10

Cup campaign with Tasman last

year has proven he has no issues

with stepping up to the higher

standard of the competition.

When Jordan was introduced

in the second half of the Crusaders

43-17 win over the Highlanders

and went on to score his

eighth try in seven appearances

this season he looked like he had

an extra gear to any other player

on the pitch. The try also tied

him with Rieko Ioane from the

Blues and Jack Maddocks from

the Rebels as the competitions

top try-scorer.

He’s also tied for seventh in

clean breaks this season – the

most by any New Zealand fullback.

Meanwhile, he’s 10th in the

competition for metres carried.

What he brings as a late

replacement to the backline

reminds me of what Beauden

Barrett bought to the All Blacks

at the 2015 Rugby World Cup

when he was used as a lethal late

replacement at fullback.

With the news that Damian

McKenzie will miss the

upcoming World Cup due to a

ruptured ACL suffered at the

weekend Jordan makes sense for

a straight swap for the role as an

Energizer bunny to bring off the

bench. Yes, he doesn’t have the

first-five versatility of McKenzie.

However, if the All Black

One-eyed Cantab

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

selectors go with the option

of starting Richie Mo’unga at

first-five and Beauden Barrett at

fullback the issue becomes null

and void.

Jordan’s case for All Black

selection could have been taking

place 12 months ago had it not

been for a vertigo issue which

plagued him of being able to be

part of the Crusaders’ plans last

year. However, he returned to

play for Tasman in the Mitre 10

Cup and went onto be named the

union’s player of the year.

He is the fourth top try-scorer

in the Mitre 10 Cup with nine

tries. He also finished the season

third in metres carried, sixth

in clean breaks and seventh in

defenders beaten.

Prior to his Tasman exploits

Jordan had a successful

secondary school career with

Christchurch Boys’ High School.

In his final year of school

he scored 19 tries in 11 UC

Championship games to finish

as the competition’s leading tryscorer.

Mercedes-Benz CLS

a real head-turner

I DOUBT I’ll ever know

the real answer. Why,

after many years, has

Mercedes-Benz gone back

to a straight six-cylinder

engine in one of its

models?

It goes like this – for as

long as I can remember

its mainstream engines

were straight-sixes, then in

the late 90s the company

reconfigured them to a

V6-type that were highly

successful, now the new

CLS-Class arrives with an

engine that has gone full

circle – an inline six.

I can work out the

answer to a certain extent,

and no-one knows better

than me – most of the cars

I have ever owned have

had straight-six engines

– they are renowned for

their smoothness and

refinement, and I guess

that’s where Mercedes-

Benz is coming from, the

CLS450 is the epitome

of sophistication and

elegance.

The CLS is classed as

a coupe, to me it’s pretty

much a coupe-type sedan

with its four doors yet

definite sloping rear which

incorporates a deep underliftback

boot.

The evaluation car

was painted black, and it

captured attention from

everyone who gazed at it,

it’s a stunning looker and

measures up in the area of

performance. Mercedes-

Benz label it a mild hybrid,

there are engineering

aspects which gather,

store and deliver energy;

however, for me I still see

it as a traditional power

plant, and that fabulous

six-potter is amazing with

its outputs and polish on

delivery.

Mercedes-Benz rates

the turbocharged 3-litre

unit at 270kW and 500Nm

of torque, both outputs

realised at usable points in

the rev band – 5500rpm

and 1600rpm respectively.

Drive from the engine,

and small electric motor, is

channelled through a ninespeed

automatic gearbox

to all four wheels, yes the

CLS in this form utilises

the 4Matic system carried

across many other models

from this stable.

Put simply, in the CLS’

case, the 4Matic system is

a device to enhance grip

levels on sealed surfaces,

and that characterises the

model, it is a slick open

road charger with handling

ability to address the

power outputs. Of course,

there are several drive

modes, and some of those

are structured so that the

high country roads can

be tackled with speed and

dignity.

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

MERCEDES-BENZ CLS450: Classed as a coupe

but with the benefit of four doors.

I took the test car on a

short Port Hills loop and

thoroughly enjoyed its ride

and handling balance.

The CLS is low (1.4m),

as a consequence there is

little body movement over

the suspension, and if you

add in the quality of the air

suspension elements there

is little doubt the CLS

is made for those quick

highway journeys. Huge

low profile 20in Good

Year Eagle tyres add to

the equation, grip is high

and performance barely

equalled in a car of this

type.

• Price – Mercedes-

Benz CLS450,

$157,890

• Dimensions –

Length, 4988mm;

width, 2069mm;

height, 1435mm

• Configuration

– Six-cylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2999cc, 270kW,

500Nm, ninespeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.8sec

• Fuel usage –

7.6l/100km

In terms of figures, the

CLS 450 will accelerate

to 100km/h in 4.8sec

and will make a highway

overtake in 3.8sec, it

simply scorches through

the acceleration process,

and there’s no point where

the engine stops giving, it

is forceful, yet you would

never know it is working

hard, it simply delivers

without sound.

As honest as it is with

its response, the engineers

have also developed

the driveline with fuel

economy in mind.

Mercedes-Benz claims

an 8.7-litre per 100km

(32mpg) combined cycle

average. That sits well with

the 9.4l/100km (30mpg)

figure showing constantly

on the dash display

graphics. At 100km/h

it is sipping fuel at just

5l/100km (56mpg) with

the engine turning over

amazingly low at 1250rpm.

All of these

computations add up to

a beautifully engineered

vehicle, it also stands out

for its dignity and all of

those values you look to

Mercedes-Benz for. The

CLS 450 has a magnitude

of safety kit, and that’s

evident every time you

drive it. There are almost

autonomous-like devices

which keep you out of

trouble.

There’s also a plethora

of features for comfort

and convenience, the CLS

just feels so right to be

in. While it is a big car

at almost 5m, you don’t

actually feel its size when

you are driving it.

As a driver it gives you

all of the feel and

satisfaction you would

expect from a car which

lists in standard form at

$157,890.

Although it may

seem like a big outlay, I’d

happily pay that amount

for such a true luxury

car, one which delivers so

much in terms of overall

performance.

Every time now I get

in the Kiddie-family

Toyota I’m looking for the

six-cylinder smoothness

that also makes the CLS

so desirable. It’s not quite

there in the Toyota, but it

is certainly an indication

of what the inline-six can

deliver.

Weatherproofing tips for

your house design

Insulation and double glazed

windows are compulsory in

new homes making them

infinitely superior to their

older counterparts for warmth

yet more can be done to

weatherproof a new home.

Underfloor insulation

Foam insulated expanded polystyrene

panels under the concrete slab act as

an insulating barrier, stopping cold

coming through from under the

house.

Garages

Insulating the garage and its door will

cut down on a steady stream of cold air

sneaking into the house. An insulated

garage door can lift the temperature

substantially even when the garage

itself is not heated, making it a more

pleasant place to spend time. Any

home appliances kept in the garage

will use less electricity as they will

not have to work as hard and your car

battery may last longer.

Roof design

Roof designs vary. The simplest way

to achieve a weather tight house is

to have a simple roof design with an

overhanging surfeit. Architectural flat

roofs will work though more care is

needed to achieve weather tightness

especially where there are hidden or

back roof gutters. Having a roof with

no overhang also requires more care

with the design due to its complexity

and potential for problems. Regular

maintenance to clean out leaves and

debris that gets caught in the roof will

be advantageous in both cases.

Porticos

Taking the roof out beyond the house

is ideal for providing a sheltered area

for spending time outdoors when the

weather is inclement.

Snow straps or guttering protection

Wherever snow is a likely part of

winter, installation of snow straps is

a good idea. These prevent damage

to guttering from the weight of snow

as it slides off the roof. Alternatively,

an expanded steel mesh product such

as Gutter Guard could be fitted. This

has the added benefit of preventing

Oamaru

Extending the roof beyond the

house creates a sheltered area.

spouting blockages from leaf and

other debris.

Capitalise on the sun

Maximise the sun’s free energy with

plenty of windows, especially on the

north side of the house.

Outdoor areas

When choosing a house design,

consider how it will sit on the section

and whether it offers potential to catch

sun inside the home and for sunny

sheltered outdoor areas away from

prevailing winds.

Windows and doors

Upgrade on the minimum standard for

double glazing with thermally broken

joinery and low-emissivity argon gas

filled windows and doors, increasing

insulation effectiveness.

Energy efficient heating

Explore heating options, selecting

what will work best given the size of

home and family needs. Heat pumps

are an efficient form of heating with

two cassette and energy saving options

available while heat transfer systems

are great if there is a log burner.

Low-E argon gas filled double

glazing increases insulation.
