Further push to relocate kart

track after consent delays

Council wants

to build

hundreds of

houses on site

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IT COULD be more than two

years before a controversial kart

club in Halswell moves.

KartSport Canterbury

president Shayne McLaren said

it is the club’s utmost desire to

obtain a resource consent from

the city council to move to from

Carrs Reserve to McLeans Island

by June to August.

He said when the resource

consent has been granted for the

new track at McLeans Island, the

process to build the new facility

and relocate will take between 18

months to two years.

A seminar updating the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board on the status

of the $3.5 million resource

consent to move the kart club is

planned to be held on May 28.

The update is a result of

Awatea Residents’ Association

secretary Kay Stieller addressing

the community board over

concerns from the community

with the ongoing delays of the

kart club’s relocation.

But Mr McLaren said it is as

keen to move to McLeans Island

as the residents are for it to move.

It comes as Carrs Reserve has

been announced as the location

for the Porter Group KartSport

New Zealand National Sprint

Championship to be held next

year.

The resource consent was first

lodged in October 2017.

The city council wants the kart

club gone from Carrs Reserve

to allow for hundreds of houses

to be built on land south of the

reserve.

The resource consent has

remained on hold while it

ON HOLD: A

seminar will be

held to address

ongoing concerns

over the length

of time it is taking

for KartSport

Canterbury to

move to McLeans

Island. ​

waits on the kart club to define

what days and hours of the week

it will be operating, the number

of karts it will have as well as

review any possible commercial

tenants for the new track.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

from the editor’s desk

WESTERN NEWS

PEOPLE LIVING in the Carrs Rd area have

had to put up with kart racing for years

(page 1).

KartSport Canterbury wants to move to

McLeans Island but the wheels are turning

very slowly.

First the club needs to get resource consent to build at McLeans,

which in itself will take between 18 months and two years. But

working out how often and what times the club can operate a

track there for the resource consent is taking too long.

A seminar between the local community board and city council

staff in late May will thrash out these issues it is hoped. The

seminar has been prompted by the Awatea Residents’ Association.

Maybe association members should stand in the local body

election to speed things up.

Wartime fallen remembered

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THOUSANDS gathered across

the western side of the city on

Thursday to remember those who

lost their lives in war.

About 1200 gathered at the Air

Force Museum of New Zealand,

about 200 attended the service held

at Hornby Primary School, about

1200 at the Halswell Domain and

1000 at the Templeton RSA.

Former city councillor Bob

Shearing, who organised the

Hornby service, said the event

focused on young people and had

a good turnout in spite of being

smaller than previous years.

Students from Hornby High

School and Hornby Primary

School also spoke of what Anzac

Day means to them and the

importance of showing kindness

to others regardless of gender,

ethnicity and faith.

The service also had guestspeakers

including Wigram MP

Megan Woods, Major Gill Waugh

and Royal New Zealand Air Force

veteran Denis Hampton.

Organiser Ron Fensom said the

Halswell service was about 600

people short compared to previous

years but those who were there

thoroughly enjoyed the service.

It was attended by city councillor

Anne Galloway, New Zealand

Army representatives and

students including Aidanfield

Christian School, Hillmorton

High School and Cashmere High

School.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

BUS STOPS

A change in the Orbiter’s route

has led to a need for bus stops

on Greers Rd and Waimairi Rd.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

and Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood community boards

will meet today to discuss

providing access to public

transport through the provision

of bus stops along the two roads.

The Orbiter change was made

due to the closure of Homestead

Lane to buses meaning the

former route via Homestead

Lane, Ilam Rd and Memorial

Ave could no longer be

operated. The route changes

have resulted in the Orbiter

using Greers and Waimairi Rd.

RESTRICTIONS LIKELY

No stopping restrictions are

likely to be placed on Treffers

Rd in Wigram. It is due to

the city council approving a

resource consent for a gym and

cafe to be built at 1 Treffers Rd.

As part of the resource consent

conditions, visibility of Treffers

Rd is required for vehicles

using the northern access to

the site of the gym and cafe. To

achieve visibility, no stopping

restrictions are required on both

sides of the access point. The

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will look to

approve the restrictions today.

An artist’s

impression

of the

planned

cinema

complex

at Wigram

Skies.

Readers respond to the

Western News’ article

about a resource consent

application to open an

eight-cinema complex at

Wigram

Gary Knight – The daunting

prospect of driving

within the central

city, obtaining a car

park or the necessity

of pre-planning bus

travel are demeaning

situations for many

wishing to view a

movie at the city’s

Hoyts complex.

Within this context, the

proposed eight-cinema complex

at Wigram Skies, including

food and beverage facilities

and meeting rooms, would be a

proactive step. Serving patrons

from Aidanfield, Longhurst,

Hornby, Halswell, Hoon Hay,

Wigram and beyond would

assure its popularity. The demise

of Movieland in 2011 has left

a void in the entertainment

venue area and would make

the placement of this cinema

complex at The Landing a

welcome addition to the area.

Vivien Jones – I

was very excited

to see the prospect

of a cinema back

in our locality as I

was a great fan of

the one in Hornby

before it closed. From

my point of view, I

would like it to be a

more intimate complex, being

in a community area. More like

the one at The Tannery, but with

some slightly bigger theatres,

and not like the new one in

town where numerous cafes will

take business away from the

established local restaurants.

Stand for election to be

council’s ‘eyes and ears’

Halswell

Residents’

Association

secretary David

Hawke writes

about the

importance of

having a diverse range of

people stand in October’s

local body elections

IN THIS opinion piece, I’m

going to bring together two

strands.

The first is that local body

elections are happening later this

year.

This is when you will have the

chance to vote for the people

you want to be your mayor, city

councillors, community board

members, and Environment

Canterbury councillors.

The second is how we, as

communities, progress the

quality of our conversations

following the dreadful events of

March 15.

Regarding the local body

elections, I am going to focus on

the community board for the

moment because many people do

not understand where the board

fits into the scheme of things.

Briefly, it provides the link

between ordinary folk in the

community and the decisionmaking

that is the responsibility

of city council.

So board members provide the

“eyes and ears” for city council

in identifying and commenting

on particular issues in their

neighbourhoods.

This means board members,

and city councillors need to be in

tune with their communities.

We have long ago figured out

having a balance of men and

WESTERN NEWS

elections.

women elected to represent us is

the best way of making sure that

men’s and women’s viewpoints

get heard.

We need to apply the same

principle to the various ethnic

and faith communities that

make up our city.

I’m really, really hoping

that some from the Muslim

community stand for election.

Actually, through the

grapevine, I’ve heard that we

are going to see some incredibly

worthy candidates from the

communities directly affected

by March 15 put their names

forward. If you are one of these

people, then go for it. If you

are, like me, part of the Pakeha

majority, I want you to be

tremendously encouraging when

one of these candidates comes

door-knocking at your place.

Wool drive for needy

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

BABIES IN need will be

kept warm this winter with

hand-made knitwear from a

community group in Hornby.

The Kiwi Family Trust will

be running a wool drive at The

Hub Hornby over the next two

weeks to collect as much wool as

possible to support families in

need.

As part of the project, the

knit ’n’ yarn group based at the

Hornby Library will be using

the wool to knit warm clothing

destined for the Hornby Plunket

Playgroup.

Kiwi Family Trust community

project manager Barbara Aitken

said she started up the knitting

group at the library several years

ago and now 15-20 people attend

each week.

She said many of them knit for

the trust as part of the Plunket

and Community Project and last

year gave Canterbury Plunket

more than 1000 items.

This year will be the first wool

drive to support families in the

Hornby area.

“Getting wool for them to knit

up is always a challenge. We are

hoping this appeal will help,”

Mrs Aitken said.

GOOD SORTS: The knit ’n’ yarn group based at the Hornby

Library will be making hand-made knitwear for babies living in

the greater Hornby area. ​

The Hub Hornby centre

manager Jason Marsden said the

project ticks quite a few boxes,

providing a social outlet for the

knitting group as well as benefiting

Plunket.

“A lot of people do have partial

balls of wool sitting around at

home and these days and it is

really nice to recycle stuff,” he

said.

Plunket community

services co-ordinator Babs

Sutherland said there are quite

a few families in need of warm

clothing for babies, particularly

in the Broomfield area.

A bin for collecting the wool

will be placed by the service desk

at The Hub Hornby. Wool can

be any ply. The wool drive runs

until May 10.

Further push to

relocate kart track

•From page 1

The club’s lease contains a

contractual right of renewal for a

further term of 33 years operable

from February 1, 2021,

meaning it could stay

until 2054.

The city council allocated

$3.5 million in

the Long Term Plan for

the club to move.

It originally contributed

$100,000 towards

the consenting costs.

Last year it granted

an additional $70,000 to

help with the relocation process.

Ms Stieller said the question

has to be asked by its elected

members to the city council staff

what has been achieved with the

$170,000 for the relocation when

no progress has been made.

Her view was backed by

chairman John Bennett, who

said there doesn’t appear to be

much fire in anybody’s belly to

do anything to move the club.

But city councillor Anne

Galloway said there has

been a lot of progress over

the last six months as additional

noise, ecological

and traffic monitoring

work was required.

She said the additional

information has now

been supplied and she

believes the city council is

now only waiting on the

consenting conditions.

CHILDREN HAVE been

making the most of the school

holidays by keeping busy at

families in the Riccarton area

who may not be able to afford

to send their kids to a full-time

programme.

Parents were asked for a

gold coin donation each day

their child attended. About

30 children attended

recently.

Part of the programme is

to train the youth in the

church and community to be

leaders.

The programme is led by

the church’s youth pastor Tash ​

Weston ​and associate pastor

Donna Reid who helps to

organise and supervise.

Along with 30 children,

about 14 intermediate and high

programme to learn how to

lead.

“It is an awesome experience

for everyone,” Miss Weston

said.

Miya set to tee off in Texas

SPORT

• By Gordon Findlater

RUSSLEY GOLFER Hiroki Miya

will take the next step on his

quest to become a professional

when he begins a scholarship at

the University of North Texas.

Miya, 18, will head to the

United States in August to

attend the division one college

at Denton, which is a one hour

drive north-west of Dallas.

The former Burnside High

School student said North

Texas coach Brad Stracke,

the world-class facilities, and

the fact his friend Cameron

Harlock, of Auckland, has also

been recruited to play golf at

the college contributed to his

decision.

Miya recently romped to

victory by five shots at the South

Island under-19 championship

at Harewood – which included

a seven under par 65 in the

second round. The win, along

with holding a 36-hole lead at

the New Zealand Stroke Play

Championship in February

BIG BREAK: Hiroki Miya will

move to the United States in

August after gaining a golf

scholarship at the University

of North Texas.

before dropping to fourth,

signalled a return to form for

Miya. “I had a really good early

2018 and then I kind of had a

rough patch, and then improved

later in the year, but then I

injured my wrist in December, so

I was out for a couple of months,

which was really frustrating,”

he said. “That’s when a lot of

tournaments were being played –

it sucked.”

Miya said there was something

in his swing which caused his left

wrist to hurt, and he has been

working hard in recent months to

resolve the issue.

“It’s about not getting so steep

and taking massive diverts

because it was putting strain on

the wrist.”

Another motivation for Miya

was seeing 16-year-old Rangiora

golfer Kazuma Kobori’s run of

incredible form. Kobori made

headlines when he won the NZ

PGA Championship last month.

“It’s pretty cool what

Kazuma has been doing and

everybody is looking up to him,”

said Miya.

I’m just trying to not lose to

him . . . I used to always beat him

and now he’s playing really well,

so it makes me work hard.”

Miya is putting in the hours at

Russley before heading to the US.

After spending much of his day

on the course, he is also working

part time on the club’s bar during

functions in the evening.

named at the end of the North

v South Island under-18

regatta at Lake Karapiro.

Shackleton will race in the

men’s double scull with Kobe

Miller of Blenheim. He had a

stellar Maadi Cup regatta last

month, winning the under-17

single sculls, under-17 double

sculls, under-17 coxed eight

and under-18 coxed eight,

which helped CBHS to its first

ever Maadi Cup.

Darry and Wylaars were

both named in the women’s

coxless four. Darry was part

of the St Margaret’s eight

which won the Jubilee Cup

and the under-17 coxed four

which also took out the gold.

Meanwhile, Wylaars took

out silver at Maadi as part

of Avonside Girls’ High’s

under-18 double sculls.

Students from Rolleston School taking part in technology education at Hornby High School.

Specialist teachers key to innovative technology classes

As one of a number of technology education providers

around New Zealand, Hornby High School caters for

students from schools in the surrounding areas that

don’t have the required facilities on site.

Every week, over 500 Year 7 and 8 students from the

client schools – Rolleston School, Templeton School,

West Melton School and St Bernadette’s, as well as

home-schooled students, head to Hornby High School

for technology education.

The classes were transferred to Hornby High’s new

campus at the beginning of this year, and prior to that

were held on the site of the former Branston Intermediate,

principal Robin Sutton says.

“The Hornby Tech Centre staff, who were located at

Branston, are all here now,” Robin says.

However, the key innovation that sets these technology

classes apart from others in New Zealand is that

the students are instructed by specialist teachers

from other areas of the curriculum. Teachers from

the arts and the sciences, including food technology

and hard and soft material technology, integrate their

subjects into the technology curriculum.

“It’s called Connect Class. We started it this year and

it’s still evolving. We will evaluate how it’s working

towards the end of the year, and make adjustments as

necessary,” Robin says.

Learning spaces

For all the students at Hornby High, including those

from client schools, the design of the newly built

school enhances their opportunities to learn, Robin

says.

While the Modern Learning Environment is sometimes

seen in a negative light by those more used to the

traditional mode of classroom teaching, in fact it has a

very positive effect on the students and their learning,

he says.

“There are big benefits with these flexible open

spaces. The architects were conscious of the potential

noise issues and the spaces are designed with that in

mind. The environment is quiet, and the children are

calmer, more focused, and more respectful of each

other and their teachers.

“The quality of the relationships that teachers build

with their students is much greater, and with the

teachers and students not being isolated from each

other in classrooms, this has a motivating effect on

the learners. The space is an enabler for learning.

“The open spaces also enable students from different

levels to work alongside each other, and we see

instances of Tuakana teine – older students helping

younger ones if they need it.”

New community

centre

a ‘vital hub’

Riccarton residents will soon be enjoying the range of

amenities being provided in the new Riccarton Community

Centre, with completion of the building expected

by Christmas this year.

Council head of community support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell says construction of the new

centre is well underway.

“Excavation and backfill has significantly progressed,

and sections of boxing and reinforcing are in place in

readiness for the concrete pours to follow.

“Around the middle of the year the community will see

the building start to pop up out of the ground with the

installation of pre-cast concrete panels, a number of

which feature tree patterns reinforcing the community

link to Riccarton Bush,” Mr Filsell says.

Located in Clarence Street, and covering 760 square

Artist’s impression of the new Riccarton Community Centre

metres, the $4.5 million two-storey facility will replace

the earthquake-damaged building, which stood on the

Christchurch City Council’s site next door. Part of the

site has been sold to fund the new centre.

Mr Filsell says the new centre will be a vital hub, supporting

local residents and opening doors to community

connections.

“A shared social space is important for community

well-being, and the new centre ticks all the boxes

with first-class facilities and access to various activity

areas,” he says.

The centre will offer a council customer services area,

a community hall, five activity/meeting rooms of varied

sizes, and a kitchen.

“It’s a ‘third place’ for the local community that can

adapt to meet various needs, separate from work and

home-related activities – a social place for people to

meet, participate or perhaps enjoy a performance in

the hall,” Mr Filsell says.

“Community interaction is complemented by the provision

of services in the centre, establishing another

shared asset in the area. It also secures a much-needed

base for our service staff and the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board.”

Inspired by Riccarton Bush, the design incorporates

full-height exterior timber columns and special images

that will feature in the precast panels. The colours will

also reflect the nearby bush environment. Sustainability

has been integral to the project, resulting in the

inclusion of roof-mounted photovoltaic solar panels

for the energy supply.

Located opposite the Windmill Centre, the new facility

will offer on-site car parks and easy access.

New retailers deliver diversity and style

The Hub Hornby offers an extensive selection of retail

and service businesses, and the last 12 months have

seen a number of new retailers join The Hub family.

The fashion offering has seen especially large growth

with Merric, Bras’n Things and Ziera Shoes all opening

new stores at The Hub.

The fashion accessory offering has also increased,

with Lovisa proving especially popular, along with

Glamlette Jewellery where they have a wide range of

ethnic jewellery including bold statement pieces and

everyday items.

The Hub’s fashion stylist, Vicki McMillan creates the

looks featured on the mannequins outside Michael

Hill, drawing together items from different retailers

in unique ways to show how items can be mixed and

matched.

Vicki also offers personalised styling and shopping

sessions for those customers that would like some

expert advice as to what fashion would work best for

them.

On Thursday, April 11, The Hub held its very first Fashion

Forecast show. Featuring a 24-metre-long runway,

the show featured upcoming autumn and winter

fashions showcased from The Hub’s retailers, and

modelled by friends and family to demonstrate real

clothing on real people.

The evening was a huge success and also featured the

winners of the Proud to Be…promotion, which saw six

locals receive full makeovers.

The winners were:

June Foster Campbell, a proud Hornby resident, who

serves the community in both a professional and

voluntary capacity. Described as firm but fair, she is

widely known in the community as Aunty June.

Matt Voice, husband and stepfather to four-year-old

Maddison. Matt runs a non-profit organisation, Primortal,

which provides calisthenic fitness classes at

The Base in Waterloo Road.

Mandy Wilson, wife and mother of four. An immigrant

to New Zealand as a young child with no English, Mandy

is now studying to be a teacher, while helping her

husband in his business and running the household.

Glenda Harris, grandmother with full custody of her

blind, autistic 12-year-old grandson. Glenda has terminal

cancer, and is in constant pain, but never complains.

Her days are spent caring for her grandson,

and attending medical appointments with him, as well

as supporting family and friends when needed.

Sheavoynne Mouat, mother of six and mother figure

to all who need it. Sheavoynne founded the netball

club Revelations to support young Maori to fulfill their

netball and touch dreams. Her door is always open to

anyone who needs a place to stay or a shoulder to cry

on.

Nicola Asmussen, blind competitive runner and Volunteer

of the Year for the Achilles charity, which organises

guides for athletes with disabilities. Nicola runs the

Christchurch chapter of Achilles, is a mentor for the

Blind Foundation, and is always ready to help out when

someone needs it.

P lenty on offer

for club members to enjoy

While there is still some demolition activity

happening at the Hornby Working

Men’s Club, it’s “business as usual”, says

general manager Paul Inwood.

“We have been having a number

of promotions over

recent weeks for our

members and visitors,

and they are

still going on,”

Paul says.

Thursday in the Club Café. For just $12,

you can enjoy Roast of the Day with vegetables,

or Fish of the Day with chips and

On Mother’s Day, Sunday May 12, the club

will have two dining offerings – a buffet

lunch from 12pm-2pm and dinner from

5pm-8pm with live entertainment. Bookings

are essential for these.

“We understand the

demolition is causing

some disruption,

but we want to

says, “and we

also welcome

new members.

“On the first

Sunday of each

month we are

running a buffet

the Sports Hall and

as well as new members to enjoy the

club.”

The Trents Road bridge being sealed

prior to opening in December.

Important times for motorway construction project

Now in its third year of construction, the Christchurch

Southern Motorway Stage 2 (CSM2) project has entered

the most important construction season yet.

With more than 215 people currently working on-site,

the project is nearly two-thirds complete. The opening

of new local road Justine Drive and the extension

of John Paterson Drive to connect up to Halswell

Junction Road happened in 2018. Extensive earthworks,

utility relocations and drainage across the

entire 14.5km CSM2 alignment have made way for all

aspects of the project to take form. Large stretches of

the alignment have been formed, sealed and landscaped.

A number of project milestones were achieved in the

last quarter of 2018. Firstly, traffic on Main South Rd

(SH1) was switched onto the new northbound lanes,

between Hoskyns Rd and Robinsons Rd.

Widening Main South Rd (SH1) to two lanes in each

direction while maintaining traffic flow is a large and

complex operation. This switch allowed construction

of the southbound lanes to commence. Following the

traffic switch, the remaining beams at the Weedons

Interchange were installed.

The first of the project’s eight bridges, the Trents Road

bridge, opened to traffic in December 2018. Trents

Road had been closed during construction of the

bridge. A temporary road at Springs Road was also

opened during November making way for the underpass

construction to commence.

Temporary roads are still operating at Halswell Junction

Road and Shands/Marshs Road, which continue

to keep traffic moving through these busy areas.

During September 2018 the first of 40 beams were

installed at the Halswell Junction Road interchange

and when completed the interchange will link motorists

with the Christchurch Southern Motorway Stage 1

(CSM1) at Halswell Junction Road.

To the side of the interchange, the extension of the

Owaka subway is nearing completion. An off-road

pedestrian/cyclist shared use path will connect the

Owaka subway to the existing Little River Rail Trail via

local roads.

A shared pedestrian and cycle path will be provided on

all local road bridges on CSM2.

Traffic management around the Shands/Marshs

interchange will continue to change as phases of the

interchange construction are completed.

Construction to connect Robinsons Rd with Curraghs

Rd by passing under Main South Rd is to commence

this year.

During 2019, access will be provided from Main South

Rd to Larcombs Rd. The final layout will see Larcombs

Rd become a cul-de-sac and Berketts Rd will be left

turn in and left turn out on Main South Rd.

From late February 2019, a series of staged layout

changes were designated to take place on Main South

Road (SH1), between Robinsons Road and Waterholes

Road as follows:.

• Construction of the Robinsons Road overpass to

commence

• Curraghs Road to be closed at Main South Road with

detours in place via local roads

• Robinsons Road to become ‘left in/left out’ to and

from Main South Rd during the overpass construction

•Main South Rd traffic to be diverted over the new

Main South Rd bridge.

What to get on

with in May

Words & P hotos Rachel Vogan

With the hint of frosts nipping at our heels, the last

month of autumn is time to get a few things done. It

may seem daunting that winter is only a few weeks

away, but I suggest you embrace the last days of

warmer soil by getting some new vegetables planted

out, along with some winter flowering colour.

Your bulbs should well and truly be in the ground by

now, however they will survive if you have forgotten.

Just make sure you plant them deeply in the ground.

Vegetables

Complete the tidy-up and clean-out of the summer

and end of autumn crops. Plenty can go in the ground

now; look to leafy greens first, like spinach, kale, silver

beet, mustard, mizuna and mibuna, which, planted in

May will nourish you in the cooler months.

Or you may choose to put up the closed sign on the

vege patch. If you do, to save yourself effort next

spring, clear the area now and then mulch it with pea

straw. Alternatively, you can sow a green-manure crop,

which can be left to its own devices to grow until the

springtime before being dug into the soil ahead of the

next planting season.

Leave pumpkins on the vine to ‘harden’ up and cure

until after the first frosts. And remember to save seeds

of your tastiest ones as these will give you free plants

for next year.

Frost protection

Move pots and planters with tender plants to a warm

spot near the house, into the greenhouse, or, in some

cases, inside. Alternatively cover them up with frost

cloth or old net curtains. Layers of straw or leaves

keep the ground warmer for tender plants that hibernate

under the ground. Reduce the amount of water

now to help plants toughen up going into the cold

months ahead.

Autumn leaves

This valuable source of nutrients will rot down to create

leaf litter that will turn into a wonderful soil conditioner.

Only collect leaves where absolutely essential.

They provide root protection for trees and shrubs and

a warm blanket for bulbs and perennials. Don’t leave

leaves too long on the lawns, however, or they will kill

the grass underneath. Clear them from walkways and

drives. Avoid adding too many piles of leaves to the

compost heap at once, too.

Cyclamen

How pretty are these flowering powerhouses right

now? It seems fitting that Mother’s Day coincides with

them looking their best. I am a huge fan of cyclamen.

I love the big open types as much as the miniature

ones. Outdoors, the smaller types do the best and

indoors you can go for either big or small. The trick to

getting the longest flowering period from them is to

keep the soil moist but not wet. Do not leave the plants

sitting in a saucer of water, they hate it. They like a

bright room, but not direct sunlight. Every few weeks,

rinse them under the shower to remove any house

dust from the foliage. After flowering, and in warmer

months, the leaves shrink down and the plant literally

goes to sleep for a few months. Don’t panic!

New vet clinic

provides holistic pet care

Wigram pet owners now have the benefit

of a modern, purpose- built veterinary

clinic where the trained staff treat all

types of pets, from cats and dogs right

through to rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice

and birds.

Veterinarian Geoff Mehrtens

established the

Wigram Vet clinic

with the aim of

offering a wide

range of holistic

pet care services

for domestic

pets.

A key aspect of

the clinic is that

it is designed to be

cat- and dog-friendly.

The cats and dogs

have separate entrances

and waiting rooms to avoid any

stress when they are waiting to see the

vet.

“Cats in particular can feel stressed when

they are out of their own environment,

so the clinic has been designed to avoid

that stress as much as possible,” practice

manager Victoria Tan says.

In addition to veterinary services, the

clinic incorporates the Good Dog Spa.

This provides personalised canine rehab

services for dogs needing post-injury

and post-surgery treatment, or that have

chronic ailments.

Three happy pooches

at Good Dog Spa.

Equipment includes a stateof-the-art

underwater

treadmill, enabling

dogs to build muscle

strength as part of

their treatment.

Dog day care and

dog grooming

are also available

at the Good Dog

Spa. Dogs can be

dropped off in the

morning to enjoy a

day of socialising and

play with other dogs

under the watchful eye of

trained supervisors.

Groomer Emma Oliver provides gentle

washing and pampering for her canine

clients, so they have an enjoyable experience.

RICCARTON HIGH SCHOOL Te Kura Tuarua o Pūtaringamotu

POPuLAR muSICAL SeT TO wOw AudIeNCeS

For Riccarton High

School’s drama

department, “Grease

is the word” this

year, as they gear

up for their biennial

production, which

this year is the everpopular

musical,

Grease.

Head of Drama

Charles Grubb

says the show was

chosen through a

selection process

by school staff,

with 60-70 students

taking part in the

production.

“Around eight to 10

teachers are helping out, each with a team of

students to look after,” he says.

Students from the school’s music department

have created a band providing the music, with

musical direction by William Grubb – Charles’

father.

The role of Sandy is being played by music

and drama student Carmen Holdaway. Her

love interest Danny is being played by female

student Yearin Park, who has an “amazing tenor

voice”, Charles says.

Therese Yammit is playing the role of Frenchie,

Riccarton High School is very proud of all

its teachers and staff, with one receiving

special mention here for his recent academic

achievement.

At the end of 2018, after seven years of parttime

study, Elliott Campbell – head of history

and classical studies, gained his Master of

Teaching Degree with Distinction from Otago

University.

This was just the latest in his long list of

academic qualifications. Elliott embarked on his

tertiary studies at Canterbury University, where

he gained a First Class Honours Degree in

history, and an MA in history, before completing

his post-graduate Certificate of Education.

He gained a Diploma of Arts from Massey

University and his Teaching Certificate at the

New Zealand Graduate School of Education

here in Christchurch.

Elliott attended Christchurch Boys High School,

which was where his interest in history and the

classics was sparked.

“I had fantastic teachers at Boys’ High, with an

incredible understanding of the subjects. They

played a huge part in making me the teacher I

am today.”

While he is pleased with his academic success,

Elliott says it’s not about the qualifications

themselves, but about gaining the skills needed

to be a good teacher and drive the students’

learning.

Grease is the word

Adam Gopperth is Kenickie and Maddi Ansley

is Rizzo.

“We are having as much student involvement

as possible in the production, and this includes

choreography and stage management,” Charles

says.

The cast is rehearsing for three hours twice a

week, getting ready to wow audiences when

Grease is performed in the school hall from

June 26-29, with four evening shows and a

matinee on the Saturday.

ANOTHeR quALIFICATION FOR HISTORy ANd CLASSICS TeACHeR

Elliott Campbell

Late last year Elliott was also awarded a Ministry

of Education scholarship to study teaching

English as a second language at Canterbury

University. He has completed the first of two

courses, and will undertake the second one

later this year.

“We have a number of English language learners

at Riccarton High and I believe it is important

to learn how to better meet their needs,” Elliott

says.

Elliott has been at Riccarton High since

graduating 16 years ago, and during his training

was sent there for classroom experience. It’s his

place, you could say.

“I really enjoy the ethos and atmosphere

at Riccarton High,” he says, “the values, the

fantastic students and the fact that there are

leadership opportunities for the students.”

PHySICS STudeNT SHINeS AT TOuRNAmeNT

As a member of a three-student team, level

three physics student Leah Albrow took part in

a national Young Physicists Tournament held at

Auckland Grammar on March 23-24.

Each team member was required to come up

with a problem to present to the judges, with

another team opposing them.

Leah had spent two months working on

her problem, which was determining how a

Newton’s cradle ‘decays’, or loses momentum.

Her presentation and speaking skills impressed

the judges, resulting in her being picked for the

Intermediate Selection Squad for an event held

in Wellington on April 5.

“I only had two weeks to develop a problem

presentation for that,” says Leah, “ and that

was thread counting from a moiré interference

pattern.”

Leah was also chosen to spend a day at the

Mt John Observatory, along with other physics

FeSTIvAL CeLebRATeS CuLTuRAL dIveRSITy

The ethnic diversity of the students at Riccarton

High, other schools in the area and the local

community was showcased at the annual

Culture Fest held in the school hall on March 8.

Music, dance and colourful costumes were

presented on stage in a rousing programme

that included 21 different performances ranging

from Chinese, Indian, Polish and Dutch dancing,

Filipino singing and dancing, to Pacifika and

Kapa Haka performances.

Riccarton High librarian Sally Blake says

the Culture Fest is all about celebrating the

different cultural groups in the school, the local

community and the wider Christchurch area.

Sally helped organise the festival, along with

the school’s new cultural diversity co-ordinator

Zohra Nabi.

“The student leaders also helped with the

organisation of the event as well. They did quite

a lot,” Sally says.

SOFTbALL mAkeS A COmebACk AT RHS

After languishing on the sidelines for the last

few years, softball is enjoying a resurgence at

Riccarton High, with Years 9 and 10 students,

boys and girls, getting involved.

A boys’ team and a girls’ team competed in the

South Island Championships earlier this year,

Sports Co-ordinator Angus Gourlay says, with

the girls coming fifth out of seven teams and

the boys fifth out of eight.

“Most of the kids also play at the local Riccarton

Softball Club or at Halswell,” Angus says, “and

the school has a mixed team that played in the

weekly summer tournament on Wednesdays

over at Mizuno Park by Cowles Stadium. The

mother of one of the students, who coaches at

Riccarton Softball, helps out with coaching our

teams.”

Leah Albrow

students from around New Zealand.

While as a very young child, Leah didn’t like

maths, she says she now “really likes” the

subject.

“I like it because it’s problem solving, and there’s

always a solution.”

She plans to pursue maths and physics when

she leaves school, potentially as a researcher,

and says academic life appeals to her.

Cultural Festival

“The community groups that participated are

groups associated with the library, and more

groups took part this year than last, which we

were very pleased about.”

A representative from the library and a local

ethnic police officer were also there.

Eight different food trucks provided a selection

of delicious dishes, giving everyone a further

taste of cultural diversity, and adding flavour to

a highly successful event.

The RHS Boy’s softball team

Student Kyle Whiu likes playing inter-school

softball because be enjoys getting to know

other people who also like the game.

He hopes the Riccarton High teams can improve

their skills and eventually make it into the top

three in the South Island Champs.

Young bloods show their

form at Premier level

Jordan Coleman (centre) in action.

Three of Hornby Rugby League’s stalwarts, Caius

Faatili, Jordan Coleman and Taualai Jnr Taualai, played

their debut games for the Hornby Premier grades

when the season kicked off on the first weekend of this

month.

Graeme Langley, who has been involved with all three

players since their junior days, couldn’t be more

pleased, president Brent Tomlinson says.

As Langley says: “All of them have made countless

representatives sides including Canterbury, Southern

Zone and New Zealand. They are solid, well-rounded

players, having passed through the Panthers coaching

and mentoring systems.”

Both Premier A and Premier B had convincing wins,

with Faatili being named man of the match for the A’s

and Taualai for the B’s. Coleman pushed Faatili very

hard for the man of the match, having an excellent

debut.

Tomlinson says Hornby’s premier side has a pleasing

combination of eager youth and experienced players.

The squad is constantly looking to improve, while

being led by seasoned campaigners Baxendale, Nutira

and Lawrie.

Leaving no stone unturned in their search for success,

Hornby has also been bolstered by the inclusion of two

West Coast players Regan Stanton and Jordan Campbell.

Jordan is the brother of last year’s Canterbury

Bulls rookie of the year, Brad Campbell.

Club update for 2019

• Hornby will be fielding teams in both the 16’s & 18’s

for Monday Rugby League at the newly opened Ngai

Puna Wai.

• The Presidents grade looks to have healthy numbers

and is progressing well with a good win first up.

• The women’s team is back in action and recently

competed in a nine-a-side to kick the season off.

• Hornby competes in all junior grades offered by CRL

and has had an excellent start with every junior side in

the club winning their first game of the season – Nursery,

6’s, 7’s 8’s, 9’s, 10 ‘s 11’s and 12’s.

“There is always room for more players at the club and

all are welcome to become a Panther,” Tomlinson says.

For further information contact Brent Tomlinson,

027 479 3254.

The club extends special thanks to all the coaches,

managers and volunteers, and the sponsors:

A new competitor in

performance car market

By Ross Kiddie

Price – Kia Rio GT-Line, $28,990

Dimensions – Length, 4065mm; width, 1725mm; height, 1450mm.

Configuration – Three-cylinder, front-wheel-drive, 998cc, 88kW,

171Nm, seven-speed automatic

Performance – 0-100km/h, 10sec

Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

Kia Motors New Zealand is doing everything it can to

raise the profile of its ever-increasing line-up.

Amidst its range of sport utility vehicles and passenger

cars is new branding – the GT-Line is stretching

further into the company’s mix.

GT-Line can be found in the new Cerato and Sportage,

and those variants generally have more features and

a slant towards higher performance – engine and

suspension.

One other model stands out with its GT-Line badge,

and that is the Rio, a smallish hatchback that has

already made a name for itself in the market for its

practicality and economy.

The Rio lands here in entry-level form at $23,490,

which makes it an affordable package and there are

higher-grade options depending on how you would like

it specced. Topping the range is a $28,990 GT-Line,

which has an engine totally different from that of its

stablemates. Instead of the tried and tested 1.4-litre

naturally-aspirated four-cylinder unit, the GT-Line gets

a turbocharged three-potter, which is squarely aimed

at Suzuki’s $28,500 Swift Sport, in terms of its position

in the market.

Power in the 1-litre unit is rated at a healthy 88kW

and 171Nm, the turbo boost ushering in a long torque

curve – 1500rpm to 4000rpm. For the three-cylinder

novice, you will firstly notice the harmonics associated

with the design; it appears lumpy and doesn’t always

seem balanced, but that’s not really the case, it just

seems that way. Performance is quite lively given the

engine has a displacement of just 998cc. It will launch

the Rio to 100km/h from a standstill in around 10sec.

The Rio in this form hasn’t lost sight of its purpose, it is

still the economical fuel miser of its counterparts - the

LX, EX and Limited. Kia NZ gives the turbo Rio a 5.4-litre

per 100km (52mpg) combined cycle average.

Kia has uprated the Rio GT-Line’s suspension quite

noticeably. It sits very firm on the road and doesn’t

absorb much in the way of road ripples. However, the

handling benefits are at the forefront, the Rio GT-Line

has sporty dynamics, it steers sweetly into a corner

and powers out with composure.

As sporty as the Rio GT-line suggests, it is still the

practical family car, the five-door layout is appealing

and the levels of comfort aren’t overly compromised,

bearing in mind that at just over 4m, the Rio as a range

isn’t big on space. However, it does make good use of

its compact proportions and will satisfy with its level of

comfort.

Kia in New Zealand knows it has to compete hard. In

all of its markets there are other brands with tempting

product.

I’m not sure the Rio GT-Line has the spark to pip the

Swift Sport, but what I do know is that Kia NZ will be

aggressive with its marketing, and it will certainly sell

to those who want something just a little different in

their performance car purchase.

Amazing support for your youngest tamariki

The first five years of your child’s life

is the foundation of their future. The

team at Barnardos Early Learning (BEL)

understands that not only is this an

exciting time in which you and your child

get to know each other, but that it’s also

a time when the right kind of environment

is crucial to your child’s development.

BEL also understands that this

can be an overwhelming time, and they

are here to support you.

BEL has two busy centres in Christchurch:

Te Puna Oraka at 69b Briggs

Road in Mairehau and the Hornby

Pasifika Early Learning Centre at 190a

Waterloo Road, which prides itself on

offering a welcoming and stimulating

experience for tamariki that reflects the

local community. What many nga matua

may not know is that BEL also offers

a well-established home-based early

learning service.

The difference is that your child is cared

for in a setting like your own home.

There is the stability that comes from

your child spending time with a small

group of children, developing a strong

relationship with their educator and

from being part of their community with

regular outings to playgroups, libraries

or other educators’ homes. All this is

supported by quality education, which

follows Te Whariki, NZ’s Early Childhood

Curriculum. You can even track your

child’s progress online as well as talking

with the educator themselves.

Regional Manager Rose Coppen says

that “data from parent satisfaction surveys

shows that BEL families appreciate

our attention to detail, the strong bond

formed between educator and child and

our convenient hours – BEL is licensed

from 6.15am to 7 pm.” This means there

is flexibility for parents who work parttime

or shift hours.

Although there are already over 250

home-based educators working for

Barnardos Early Learning across Aotearoa,

there are so many families wanting

to take advantage of this service that

Barnardos is actively looking for new

educators. This work often suits people

who want to stay at home with their

own child and who can also take in up to

three other children. Barnardos offers

great support through their Visiting

Teachers, who call into your home with

advice and guidance. They also provide

equipment, study incentives and help

with training. One of BEL’s educators,

Rosa (pictured) learned a multitude

from the Barnardos-funded training

which she combines with her talent as

a musician, as “the children really love

it when she plays the harp and keyboards.”

Information on becoming a Barnardos

home-based educator is available at

barnardosearlylearning.org.nz/careers/.

Allergy sufferers welcome winter

Although the weather is getting cooler and the

days are getting shorter, many are glad the warmer

weather has passed. For hay fever sufferers, spring

and summer can mean sore, irritated eyes, sneezing

and blocked noses, sinus infections, tiredness

and poor sleep. All that can add up to time off from

school and work, and reduced performance when

sufferers do attend. When you factor in that one

out of every five New Zealanders suffers from allergic

rhinitis, that’s quite an impact.

However, help is at hand thanks to the South Island

Allergy Service, which is based at Riccarton Clinic

Medical Centre, 6 Yaldhurst Road. Their team of

highly experienced and qualified specialists offers

a technique called desensitisation or immunotherapy,

which encourages the body to build up

tolerance to whatever sparks the allergic reaction.

The first step is skin-prick testing, an almost painless

process to identify exactly which allergen

sets off your reactions. Then, the desensitisation

process begins, usually at home and as early as

possible before the hay fever season begins. Winter

is ideal for this.

However, the Allergy Service team uses this technique

to treat many other concerns as well as hay

fever. Food allergies and intolerances are common

and can be life-threatening. Some symptoms such

as hives, eczema, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea

are obvious, but other symptoms, especially in

children, can be confused as general eczema,

reflux or colic. Testing and accurate diagnoses can

put parents’ minds at rest, and immunotherapy

can begin a gentle process to reduce the allergic

reaction.

Other allergens can be found in the air that we

breathe. Dander from the much-loved family pet,

dust mites and mould can result in rashes, swollen

eyes and asthma. Trying to avoid these triggers is

a great solution, but not always possible, so again,

accurate diagnoses will help determine just what

is the cause and what can be done to minimise

symptoms.

Find out more about their services and this effective

and potentially life-changing technique by calling

(03) 361 0400 or visiting www.allergyservice.

co.nz.

Modern healthcare

in a charming, period setting

After almost three unbroken decades at Church Corner,

Riccarton Clinic continues to provide GP services

and urgent medical care, treating thousands of patients

every year. In fact, it is the third-busiest medical

facility in Christchurch.

That growth has led to the clinic’s purchasing and remodelling

a nearby residential property into a general

practice suite, which, according to the clinic’s general

manager Mark Darvill, “is deliberately quite different

from our existing, purpose-built facility”.

The mid-century building, located at 20 Brake Street

is full of charm, period features and has a calm presence.

Remodelled to be more suitable as GP rooms, the

original wallpaper and Axminster carpeting have been

retained where possible and beautiful rimu flooring

has also been exposed and lovingly restored. To add to

the ambience, the Riccarton Clinic team has sourced

desks, beds and other items of furniture that fit with

the peaceful, period style.

As Mark says, “It’s like stepping back in time. The look

and feel of the property invokes a calmness and wonder

in everyone who visits.”

There are four carparks and a disabled parking space,

ramped access at the rear, and additional parking

nearby. The gardens are beautiful with many original

roses (some over 50 years old), established camelias

and other shrubs. Indeed, the garden won a prestigious

Community Board award two years running.

The facilities at Riccarton Clinic’s Church Corner site,

Travel bags for every trip

During New Zealand’s cooler months many of us travel

to warmer parts of the world to enjoy the sun, and

while we may travel light, we still need good, sturdy

luggage to carry our belongings – and bring back the

shopping.

Just Bagz in Dressmart Hornby specialises in all

types of travel bags, designed to suit all needs and

budgets. Owned and operated by Graham and Julieann

Griffiths, the family-run business stocks quality

luggage from leading manufacturers including Samsonite,

Eminent, Tosca and High Sierra, with 90 per

cent of the stock being brought in by the couple.

Graham has been in the industry for over 40 years,

covering manufacturing, wholesaling and retailing,

so with that experience and knowledge he can advise

customers on the right bag to suit their requirements

and budget.

This may depend on how many people will be using

it, for example if it’s a family, their mode of travel –

whether by road, sea or air, and how much they want

to take or bring back.

The choice then is between hard and soft luggage and

this really comes down to personal preference, Graham

says. There is a huge selection of sizes, styles and

fashion colours in both types, with 90 per cent of bags

now having four wheels instead of two, which means

they are very easy to manoeuvre and transport.

As well, there is a wide selection of backpacks on

display. These include adult sizes in various styles, and

children’s backpacks featuring colourful designs of

their favourite cartoon characters.

Just Bagz also stocks a range of the Pacsafe brand of

security shoulder bags, which keep money, passport,

tickets and other personal items safe from potential

theft, while the range of travel accessories includes

TSA locks and adaptors, passport holders, luggage

labels, luggage scales and much more.

So, when planning your next holiday have a browse

round Just Bagz, and if you are not sure of what to get,

have a chat to Graham or Julieann. They will be very

happy to advise on the best type of luggage for your

travel needs.

Island trips & cruising

holidays popular

The 2019 year “started with a bang” at House of Travel

Hornby, says business owner Paula Waldeck, with lots

of people booking travel to exciting destinations all

around the world.

“Fiji is one of our most popular holiday spots, as it’s

ideal for both couples and families, whether on the Fiji

mainland or one of the islands,” Paula says.

Families are well catered for with plenty of fun activities

for the children, while for couples it’s a great place

to relax and take time out, she says.

“Air New Zealand and Fiji Airways offer direct flights,

so it’s only four hours away. It really is the ultimate

getaway, especially during the colder months here.”

For those that want to visit several destinations in one

trip, cruising is becoming one of the most sought-after

ways to see the world, Paula says, with cruises available

to suit every budget and itinerary.

“A lot of people start with a South Pacific cruise, but

we would encourage them to go further. There are

some great ships available now with wonderful cruises

scheduled for 2020 and 2021. By pre-booking, people

can secure good deals, and the best cabins.”

Options include cruising around the Hawaiian Islands,

the Mexican Riviera, and the Caribbean.

“Now that there’s better access to the US with direct

flights to Houston, Texas, it’s easier to get from there

to Florida to join these cruises,” Paula says.

“Mediterranean cruises are also very popular, with the

season just starting. They take in historic places like

Rome, Venice and Athens, which are so interesting to

visit, like the Baltic cruises, too, which visit Scandinavia,

Russia and Eastern Europe. For passengers wanting

to do shore excursions in Russia, on-board visas

are available.”

Full cruise packages including airfares and a night’s

accommodation at each end of the cruise are available,

or House of Travel Hornby can create individual

itineraries for customers.

There are different styles of cruise ships, from the

larger ships that carry a large numbers of passengers

and offer a wide range of facilities, to the smaller,

boutique-style ships that offer a more exclusive trip

and go into smaller ports.

But no matter how you choose to sail, one of the best

things about cruising is that “you only have to unpack

once”.

You will find everything you need to know about planning

your next cruise at the House of Travel Cruise

Expo being held at the Christchurch Art Gallery on

June 11, and you can register your interest to attend

now by contacting the Hornby Team on 344-3070.

The evening will include informative talks on the various

destinations, with the cruise suppliers providing

brochures, and your House of Travel Hornby team

there to answer all your cruising questions.

Retreating into a shell

Do you have a family member who is

starting to shy away from family gatherings?

Are they saying “Nah”, more often

than “Yeah”, when a social function is

suggested? They may not want to admit

it, but they may be have developed a

problem with their hearing. Retreating

into your shell is a common coping

mechanism for those with hearing

difficulties.

The most common type

of hearing loss is due

to gradual damage to

minute nerve endings

in the inner ear.

This causes a reduction

of speech clarity,

with the beginning

and endings of words or

sentences dropping away.

This is incredibly frustrating, as

it can sound like people are not speaking

clearly. The biggest problem, however, is

that background noise can be heard just

as loud as always; meaning that understanding

conversation in a group or social

situation can be very difficult.

As a rule, most people do not like to

admit to having hearing difficulties; so

when in a situation where conversation

is becoming hard to follow, most people

will try to bluff their way through, nod and

smile and hope they get away with it. Trying

to make out what is being said in such

a situation is very mentally tiring, so you

can understand why a future invitation to

such an event may be turned down.

The team at Hear Again see this pattern

repeated time and time again; and can always

reverse the process for you.

A hearing test is simple and

painless and gives a quick

clarification of if you

have a hearing issue.

There are incredibly

discrete hearing aids

available now which are

not noticeable when in

place. And with prices

starting as low as $495

(assuming you are a New

Zealand Resident and eligible for

a Government Subsidy for hearing aids)

there are options to suit every pocket.

The friendly, professional team at Hear

Again don’t bite, and will help you find the

best solution for your needs and budget.

You never know, they even find that you

just need some ear wax removing, and

sort this out for you on the spot!

Don’t live life in shell; re-join the conversation

and Hear Again!

Are you starting to miss

the beginnings or endings

of people’s sentences?

Timepieces for every occasion and

every budget; for now and forever

Clocks and watches have a special sense of history unlike

anything else. They are a traditional gift for 21st birthdays

and weddings, they are passed down from generation to

generation, and they can represent a family’s history. Like

all fashion and home accessories, styles for watches and

clocks move with the times. At Ilam Watchmakers on 207,

Waimairi Road, there is a treasure trove of watches, pocket

watches, wall clocks and free-standing clocks that can be

practical to match your décor or become prized heirlooms

that will last through the ages.

This family-business has gone from strength to strength

since it began back in 2001, both as retailers and as watch

and clock repairers. They tackle jobs of all sizes from

replacing a battery in a wrist watch through to repairing an

antique grandfather clock. They even recently renovated

and repaired the clock in Christchurch’s historic Arts

Centre. This year, their team has grown with a new fulltime

repairer who brings international expertise with her.

They are very much a close-knit team who believe in

putting their customers first and doing whatever they

can to make clients happy. Comprising administrators,

repairers and an apprentice with extra support from the

family when needed, customers appreciate their efficiency,

affordable pricing, and great contact throughout the

process so they never felt left in the dark.

They also keep up-to-date with trends in the industry,

stocking Eco Drive watches which are powered by light, so

no need to replace the batteries.

They enjoy the challenge of stocking items to match

everyone’ style. If your home is an older property, they

have barometers and cuckoo clocks; if you have a funkier

style, then they have a range of novelty clocks.

The same wide choice applies to watches with something

for all lifestyles. They have cheap and cheerful children’s

watches in bright colours; practical and robust dive

watches; Royal London pocket watches for the

especially stylish; reliable nurses’ watches; and

wrist watches by Pulsar, Olympic, colourful

Ice-Watches, Casio, Citizen and Timex. They

can also repair and service all brands such as

Omega, Rolex, and Longines both for the private

customer and for jewellers across New Zealand.

Whatever service they are providing, customers

are guaranteed a friendly smile and great service.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

WESTERN NEWS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with

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

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

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

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

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

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

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

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

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

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

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

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

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated than

surgery. In very few treatments the client

will know if it is going to work for them or

not, without financial commitment.

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

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

There’s something very special about hearing

a full orchestra of young people perform

some of the great classics.

So come and join our young musicians,

conducted by Helen Renaud, in a concert

of wonderful music from around the world.

From the beautiful lakes and mountains

of New Zealand with Lilburn’s Aotearoa

Overture to the noisy and bustling streets of

Paris in Gershwin’s American in Paris this

will be a concert of wonderful melodies and

great contrasts.

Our talented strings will perform Holberg

Suite by Greig, a five-movement work based

on 18th century dances before the wind,

brass and percussion of the concert band will

entertain with a rollicking and humorous

jazz inspired Blue Shades by Tichelli. Finally

from Russia, one of Prokofiev’s most wellknown

works and his first foray into film

music, the Lieutenant Kijé Suite. A concert

not to be missed.

The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra

was founded in the 1970s and is the senior

orchestra of the Christchurch School of

Music. The orchestra is a musically and

technically advanced orchestra for the city’s

musical youth to widen and develop their

musical and performing experience.

Each year the orchestra performs 3-4

concerts and can often be called on to

perform at corporate and community events.

Professional players from the Christchurch

Symphony Orchestra and the New Zealand

Symphony Orchestra regularly work with

students at sectionals to coach them in the

nuances of orchestral playing.

In 2015 the CSM signed a sponsorship

agreement with the University of Canterbury

for the youth orchestra which is an exciting

development in the orchestra’s history. This

sponsorship gives naming rights to the

university and ensures the players can have

access to interesting repertoire and essential

equipment.

The musicians of the UC Christchurch

Youth Orchestra under their conductor have

worked hard to bring this concert to life so

come along and enjoy a wonderful evening

of great music.

The peace train…

17 Law Lane, Mount Pleasant

Enquiries over $649,000

3 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | Listing Number: SMT10401

Mt Pleasant is a peaceful place to live.

Awake to the picturesque views of

the sunrise over the Bay Harbour while

enjoying the feeling of space this cool

210m 2 property offers.

This is a home for family or professionals

set on 878m 2 built in 2004 and is

complimented by fresh contemporary

décor, while three double bedrooms and

two bathrooms ensure there’s plenty

of room to accommodate every family

member.

The living spaces are equally as versatile,

the separate lounge offers utterly stunning

views with large windows that blend in

with the peaceful surrounds, while the

expansive light filled open plan kitchen/

dining/living area houses a well-appointed

kitchen a real treat for the chef of the family.

A log burner, a pallet burner, a heat pump,

double glazing make the winter months

warm and inviting.

Pull back the sliding doors leading to

the outside and chill on the deck, a perfect

place for entertaining, while the children

laugh and play on the grassed areas.

A separate laundry, and double garage

complete the appeal.

The section incorporates easy drive on

access

Located close to all walking tracks, the

ocean and all shopping amenities are a

short drive. In zone for Mt Pleasant school.

Private school buses interconnect at the

bottom of the hill.
