SELWYN TIMES

THE COMBINED Country rugby

competition is heating up (page 19).

Ellesmere teams didn’t fare too well at the

weekend against their North Canterbury and

Mid-Canterbury opponents as the play-offs

get closer.

But there were good points.

Lincoln continues to improve and had a good win over Saracens

at Rangiora. The shire (Lincoln that is) was quiet on Saturday

afternoon, with many supporters marching north. No doubt their

presence must have helped.

Veteran halfback Jason Pietzner came off the bench to record

his 297th appearance for Lincoln. The magic 300-mark may only

be weeks away.

At Tai Tapu, Burnham Dunsandel Irwell provided the upset

of the round over reigning champions Waihora. A 13-point haul

from Marshall Van Jaarsveld proved crucial.

The season is heating up.

“A lot of parts about the

. . . it’s just the water thing that’s

making people unhappy,” Mr

Neale told Selwyn Times.

He wrote a letter to the district

council on Thursday, saying it

had told him two weeks ago that

the consultation location was

yet to be confirmed, allowing

ratepayers to discuss where

the meeting could be held over

Easter. “I did this [discussion]

and the overwhelming consensus

was ‘this is about Arthur’s Pass

water, so any meetings should be

held in Arthur’s Pass’.”

The district council said it

could not respond to questions

about the chlorination

consultation before Sewlyn

Times’ deadline due to staff being

off site.

Mr Neale also believes the

district council may have to

send out another letter, as it

incorrectly stated the meeting

on May 16 will be on a Tuesday

when it is actually a Thursday.

He said the consultation

The Collins family

celebrated 150 years of

farming in Springston

on Saturday. Julia Evans

speaks to Murray Collins

about the family who

has lived and worked the

land and their roots in

newspapers

SELWYN TIMES

News

Collins family’s long history of dairying

THERE’S MURRAY and

Judy, their daughter Jenny and

grandchildren Elsie, Henry and

Leila.

Those are the three generations

of the Collins family currently

living on Springston’s Pendah

Farm, which has celebrated 150

years of operation.

But before them there was

William, Walter, Leslie and Jack

Collins.

William was a typographer

who sailed to New Zealand from

the United Kingdom in 1850,

after working for the London

Morning Post.

Though he did not settle in

Canterbury.

“When they came out from

England, he was with his second

wife and five children. His first

wife was his second wife’s sister,

who died in child birth.”

Their first stop was New

Plymouth, Murray said, where

William established the region’s

first newspaper - the Taranaki

Herald.

It’s first paper was printed on

August 4, 1852.

“He only did that for about

three years and then went farming

in Taranaki,” he said.

In 1858 one of William’s sons,

14, died. But as the Māori Wars

were fought in the region, ultimately

killing more than 3500

people, Murray said his greatgreat

grandfather was driven

away.

Murray said there isn’t much

information as to why the family

left the North Island.

“This is only an assumption but

the fact that his fourteen-year-old

son was killed during this time

may have had some bearing on

why he moved so far away,” he

said.

“When he got to Canterbury,

TRANSFORMATION

he was the printer for The Press

when it first became a daily, the

first printer in 1863,” he said.

“So he would have worked in a

little room with James FitzGerald.”

With four years of working side

by side with one of the city’s most

influential figures in FitzGerald,

William decided to move south.

“In 1867 he only worked for

The Press part-time and came out

to start farming in Springston.”

The farm wasn’t fully established

with dairy until 1869,

when Collins Rd where it sits was

also given its name.

William worked the farm until

his death in 1895.

It was then one of his sons,

Walter who took over ownership

of the 67ha farm.

“He had a son and a daughter

and his son, Leslie, stayed on the

farm.”

Leslie was Murray’s grandfather,

but died before he was born.

He didn’t know much about

the farm at this time because it

wasn’t discussed by the family.

“I didn’t know them, he was

dead before I was born. He was

only 57 when he died,” he said.

“The land would have still been

worked with horses, up until my

grandfather’s day. My father was

the first one to have a tractor on

the land.”

Leslie’s son and Murray’s

father John, commonly known

as Jack, took over in the late

1940s – where he worked his

entire life.

But Murray said it was hard to

get information on the family.

“Dad told us a few things, but

my grandmother who would’ve

known a bit more didn’t tell us

anything.”

Jack was 25 when Murray was

born, his older sister and younger

brother haven’t had much to do

with the farm since.

“It was about 1971 when I

was 19 when I started working

full-time on the farm and then

I bought it from my parents in

about 1986.”

Sixty-seven-year-old Murray

has lived his whole life on the

farm – though not in the same

house as the rest of the Collins

family.

“Five generations of family have

lived in the little cottage the first

guy built it when he got here, then

when I was a child, about eight,

we bought a piece of land further

up the road and lived there.”

In 1976, his parents bought

the property across the road and

built the house where Murray

and his family live today.

“It was just a daily grind

milking cows, but it was what I

wanted to do,” he said.

Every day started at the crack

of dawn, 5.30am, Murray said.

“There was milking all year

round, not a lot of time for a

break.”

He met his wife Judy on a blind

date when he was 25, which

“went well.”

Two years ago, Murray leased

the majority of the farm to his

neighbours, who continue to run

the land as a dairy farm, but kept

a small portion of the land to use

for beef cattle.

“I’m retired, but I’ve still got

16ha I work myself, the rest of

the farm is leased to a neighbour

now,” he said.

“I gave up dairy only a couple

of years ago and then on the

FAMILY TIES:

Judy and Murray

Collins with their

daughter Jenny

Broomhall and

grandchildren

Elsie, 3, and

19-month-old

twins Leila and

Henry, have

celebrated 150

years farming on

the Springston

property.

15ha I’ve kept to work myself, it

was more sensible to run a few

beef cattle. It’s not a massive beef

enterprise.”

He said he’s got “a lot of catching

up to do” when it comes to

relaxing and going on holiday in

his retirement.

“We’ve got a few vintage cars

that we take our for runs every

now and then.”

Murray’s daughter Jenny and

her three children – Elsie, 3 and

18-month-old twins Henry and

Leila – also live on the farm.

But the children aren’t quite

old enough to start milking cows

yet.

“They’ve got tractors in their

toy box though,” Murray said.

The Collins family will still

have a long connection with the

farm, even though Jenny doesn’t

see herself farming it.

“She doesn’t want to sell the

property, but she won’t farm it

herself,” Murray said.

There have been moments

over the last 30 years where he

has considered packing it in and

selling it himself.

Balloons to return for

another night glow

HOT AIR balloons from

all over New Zealand will

descend on the district for

the Hororata Night Glow

this month.

Ballooning Canterbury

co-founder Michael

Oakley said balloonists

who took up the invitation

at last year’s event are all

returning on May 18.

“Many of the pilots and

crews are from the North

Island,” Mr Oakley said.

“In the week leading

up to the Hororata Night

Glow the balloonists enjoy

a social week of flying

together. Exactly when and

where we fly will depend

on the weather but we

hope to be in the sky as

much as possible, which

will be a spectacular

sight for those on

the ground,” Mr

Oakley said.

The Night Glow

will also hold onto

small traditions

throughout the history

of ballooning –

which originated in

France, he said.

One of these traditions

is for the pilot to present

the landowner on whose

property the balloon

makes its final landing

with a ceremonial bottle of

champagne.

“Hot air balloons are

at the mercy of the wind

somewhat so when and

where we fly early in the

mornings will only be decided

just prior to launching.

We will always endeavour

to respect people’s

property, especially when it

comes to landing,”

Mr Oakley said.

The balloon

crews will be

hosted with local

families which

adds to their feeling

of being part

of the community.

“It would not be

possible to have

this many visiting pilots

and crews without the support

of all the hosts and the

team who have volunteered

to cater for them,” Mr

Oakley said.

The Night Glow at the

Hororata Domain will also

see hot air balloons glowing

in unison to music.

“The balloons do not

leave the ground at the

Night Glow, instead we

light them up like giant

lanterns. The Night Glow

could happen anytime from

5.30pm,” Mr Oakley said.

He urged people to get to

the domain early to make

the most of all the food

and entertainment.

•The Hororata Night

Glow will be held

Saturday, May 18, at

the Hororata Domain,

3pm – 8.30pm.

is May 19. Discounted

tickets are available

Troublemaking teens move out of Rolleston

•From page 1

Police suspect that the

teenagers were being supplied

alcohol and drugs

by adults, who have also

moved into Christchurch.

“They congregate [in

Riccarton and the central

city] and are smoking cannabis

and stuff like that.

Minor offending as well,

like shoplifting at Westfield

Riccarton,” Senior Constable

Ward said.

The situation in Rolleston

is “positive,” but as the

teens were from Rolleston,

Senior Constable Ward

believed they could return

to the town.

Last month, Selwyn

Times reported that the

teens carried out similar

crimes in Rolleston, such

as shoplifting and smoking

cannabis.

Some of the teens had

also been sleeping rough in

Rolleston.

Police said the main

concern was that petty

crimes could lead to serious

crimes.

Senior Constable Ward

said he is planning more

family group conferences

with the families of the

teens, to try and control

their behaviour.

Balancing sugar intake

I HOPE you’ve all had an

awesome Easter break and ate

more chocolate than I did.

Not that I didn’t have heaps, I’m

just generous with my hopes.

Maybe it’s because she’s our first

child but Laura and I are pretty

strict on how much sugar we

let Vittoria have. If we’re having

something sweet to eat in front

of her, she’ll get a wee bit to taste,

but we don’t normally give her

one of her own.

Secretly, I think we limit it so

that she might continue being

a healthier eater than us for her

lifetime.

Long story short, Vittoria did

not get an Easter egg.

However, she did eat a lot of

good food at multiple family

meals and even scoffed a

few pieces of Laura’s mum’s

famous italian prune cake

(once erroneously translated as

“mum’s sweet affair of prunes” by

Facebook).

Her other little Easter treat was

getting to take one of mum’s new

dogs for a walk to work off the

meals. She was super cute leading

the wee pooch about with the

lead.

Didn’t last a whole walk, she

eventually just got over it and

dropped the lead.

Recently, we’ve begun noticing

a new behaviour in Vittoria;

jealousy – especially of Laura.

If I’m holding Vittoria and

Laura comes up for a hug too,

Vittoria pushes her hand into her

face to shove her away.

Last week, Laura and I were

sitting and chatting, Laura leaning

into me. All of a sudden, Vittoria

gets all whingy, runs over,

jumps onto me and starts shoving

Laura away all over again.

It’s pretty cute and funny for

must hurt Laura a little.

Hopefully, Vittoria start

stealing her daddy away from

her.

Or at least stop shoving her in

the face.

Have your say on Rolleston

and Leeston facilities

CONSULTATION has begun

on the design for the Rolleston

town centre.

The district council is asking

for feedback on the plans for the

streets and pedestrian spaces,

which will surround the centre.

This will involve the

construction of the $22.2

million Te Ara Ātea Library and

Community Centre and the

completion of associated roading

projects.

The community centre will

open onto a town square, which

will be built to include areas for

community gatherings, markets,

events, performances and community

interaction.

People have the chance to

give feedback on many aspects

of the town centre including

a proposed 30km/h speed

limit between Tennyson St and

Wordsworth St, the layout of

the town square, car parking,

the bus stop and loading bays,

pedestrian features such as outdoor

furniture and planting and

the layout and features of the

proposed promenade.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the consultation period was a

chance for people to add their

own touch to the town centre

and an exciting sign the project

was close to getting under way.

Public submissions will be

received from now until 5pm

on May 24, with work on the

project planned to begin in

August.

The community centre is

expected to be completed by November

next year, with the town

square scheduled for completion

in early 2021.

Meanwhile, feedback is being

sought on a new community

facility for Leeston and the best

ways it can be best utilised.

The district council’s 2018-

2028 long-term plan process

indicated a community facility

was required to meet the

growing needs of the Leeston

community.

District council open space

and property manager Mark

Rykers said the project was at its

very early stages.

Mr Rykers said it was speaking

with the community to understand

its needs.

“In this first stage of public

feedback, we’re wanting to

know the types of activities

which people in the community

see themselves doing

in the facility,” Mr Rykers said.

The consultation period

finishes at 5pm next Monday.

What’s your perspective?

The Government is proposing to reform the Overseas Investment

Act, to better ensure that it supports New Zealanders’ wellbeing.

A consultation document has been released which outlines a

range of options. These options explore issues related to: what

investment is screened, who is screened and how screening occurs.

This is an important topic for all New Zealanders, so the Treasury

is holding a public meeting so that individuals and organisations

can share their views.

Choosing a high school which gives you the opportunity to be

motivated, happy, challenged and supported is essential in your

years as a young adult to set you up for a full and enriched life.

During our open day we will have guides to take you around

Bruce Sayer has been a

14 years. He talks to

adjusting to life in

New Zealand

Why did you join the

volunteer firefighter brigade?

I think it’s because everyone

says the same thing about

helping the community. But we

[my family] immigrated from

Zimbabwe and we came from

a small town where everyone

knew everyone. When I was

approached by one of the brigade

members to join, I put my hand

up and came down [in 2004].

Did you have any firefighting

experience before that?

Yes, I had a bit of experience

working for an Anglo-American

company in Zimbabwe. We set

up an in-house brigade. So a

little bit, but nothing obviously

as regimented and as well

trained as this.

You’ve been in the brigade

since 2004, what have been your

hardest moments?

From a personal point of

view, I think house fires are the

EMOTIONAL TOLL: Bruce Sayer says house fires are difficult to deal with because they have a

big impact on people who live in the community.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

hardest to deal with, because

you’re dealing with people

within your community. They’re

very devastating – not just

financially, but emotionally,

for the homeowners because

they’re people you know within

the community. So probably

house fires are the hardest, but

obviously followed by medicals

with children involved and

motor vehicle accidents with

children involved – I think that’s

where brigades really struggle.

People with children struggle a

lot at these types of calls because

they can relate to it.

So it’s that sort of thing and, as

times go by cars go faster, they’re

made of lighter materials and the

damage done to the occupant is

more severe.

How do you deal with

traumatic situations within the

brigade?

In years gone by, I think most

people would take it on-board

and deal with it internally. But

as time has gone by, I think it’s

something that needs to be dealt

with and is being dealt with. The

Fire Service has started a really

good peer support programme

now. Counselling is fully

available to any crew member at

any time.

Not just after an accident, if

they have an issue at home there

is facilities for them to be able to

talk to someone.

This is probably a wrap

around approach by Fire and

Emergency New Zealand, which

I think is great. It’s not just

sending you out to fight a fire or

go to a motor vehicle accident.

They’re actually looking out for

your health and well-being at the

same time.

I chose ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’

as the title for the trilogy because I

feel that it best represents my work

and the person I am.

*Melancholy: a feeling of pensive

sadness, typically with no obvious

cause.

Part I: Identity 2018

Part II: Dissectum 2019

Part III: Lost & Found 2020

Dissectum means ‘deeply cut’ and

in its original meaning refers to the

deep cuts in foliage. For me the

deep cuts are not just the ones we

need to make to understand the

workings of an organism but also

the potential deep cuts we need to

consider when we have to make

big decisions (as in: ‘Murderous

Intent’). To be deeply cut can also

be the result of our experiences in

life. And with deep cuts comes the

need to heal, to find ways to put

what is left back together again or to

form a ‘new’.

The exhibition is in two parts –

the front of the gallery is ‘The

Wunderkammer*’ where various

objects, boxes and other curios are

shown.

*Wunderkammer: A cabinet of

scientific curiosities, especially

during the Renaissance

In the back of the gallery I am

exhibiting a series of, mainly

charcoal drawings, all working with

or referring to ‘Dissectum’, plus

4 small bird paintings embellished

with embroidery.

Simon van der Sluijs is an artist

of Dutch descent and traditional

painting and drawing training.

His themes are deeply personal,

unconventional, dark, humorous and

disturbing.

CRASH: Bruce Sayer says car crashes have the biggest impact on the

well-being of firefighters.

Because if your mind is

in the right place, you’ll

perform better, and I think

in the long-term it will

help in keeping brigade

members.

So you believe crash

injuries are worse now?

I think they are, because

of speed and people not

wearing seat belts and

probably one of the worst

is inattention to driving.

There’s so much going on

now, there’s loud music

and other distractions –

whether it’s a cell phone

or something like that.

You look at a lot of these

accidents where people

are running stop signs

and give way signs, it’s just

not concentrating on the

job at hand and they have

traumatic consequences

for all concerned.

Do car crashes take a lot

of your time?

Out here in Hororata not

as much. We’re in a bit of a

quiet zone here.

When we normally go to

accidents Rakaia Gorge is

where we would normally

be called. For us, it’s more

TERRIFYING: Bruce Sayer saw the Port Hills fire from a rooftop in Hororata

before he was called in to fight the blaze at night.

Port Hills fire ‘a little

bit like Armageddon’

•From page 9

You went to the Port

Hills fire of 2017, would

that rank as the biggest

fire you’ve been called to?

Definitely. Just the scope

of it, you know, we could

see it burn from out our

way [in Hororata] and we

were called that night. So

we went in at night and

it probably looks more

terrifying at night because

everything is glowing,

everything is on fire, you’re

in unfamiliar places where

you don’t know where the

road goes to and you don’t

know which way the wind

is going.

What was it like on the

ground at the Port Hills?

It was quite surreal. You

don’t expect that, your

training is what you sort of

base all your assumptions

and ideas on. But when it

comes to something like

that burning so great and

fast and fires everywhere,

it’s a little bit like

Armageddon. There was

just so much going on.

Did you ever think your

life could be in serious

danger during the Port

Hills fire?

There were times like

that when appliances

were down a one-way

road and it’s dark and

you don’t know where the

fire is coming from. You

just wonder if the fire did

come, how would you

turn everything around?

Or would you be able to

out run it? But the officer

in charge in the zone we

were located in was really

good. Everyone was wellinformed

and I don’t think

there was ever from this

station’s point of view a

time that we were put in

extreme danger.

What are the challenges

of being a volunteer?

I think with the

changeover from the

volunteer service to FENZ,

a lot of the challenges and

constraints we were under

before have been sort of

alleviated. We’ve got the

opportunity now where

we can bring in people

to the brigade to assist us

with on-station activities,

whether it’s an office-type

job or secretary within the

brigade or other tasks. So

it’s relieved the pressure on

brigades and the officers

themselves by having

people in it for operational

support. Before the officer

in charge basically had to

do all the paperwork, and

as a volunteer brigade, you

don’t get much time to do

that. Whereas if you’re a

paid staff member you’re

on station. At the moment,

the way it’s going with

FENZ is positive. With

FENZ now, we as a brigade

have been able to bring

on an operational support

person to do all our risk

reduction work. So they’ll

go out and do all the smoke

alarm and fire safety talks.

We’ve also started a cadets

course so we’ve got six

cadets on the course now,

so there’s a lot of changes –

which is good.

You must have seen

some silly incidents over

the years and wondered

how it happened?

There’s always things

like that when people light

fires with a total fire ban on

because it rained the night

before. And you just can’t

understand how someone

can think because it rained

they can burn.

Outside of volunteer

firefighting, what’s your

day job?

I’m a farm manager in

a mixed dairy grazing

and cropping farm. That’s

what I’ve always done in

New Zealand. I’ve had a

bit of a mixed career, I did

sugar cane and crocodile

and ostrich farming in

Zimbabwe. It’s definitely

something not seen in New

Zealand.

When did you move to

New Zealand?

We immigrated in 2002.

Any particular reason

why you chose this part of

the world?

I had family here already.

For me, it was important

as we had two small kids

and I wanted them to them

in a country where they

had scope and they were

able to achieve their goals

and not have to emigrate

themselves in the future.

Did you consider any

other part of New Zealand

to live in?

When we came, we

stayed with my sister in

Christchurch while I was

looking for work. And

I got the opportunity to

join a company out here

and we moved out here [to

Hororata] and never left.

It’s a good community, a

really good brigade with a

lot of good crews and I’ve

loved every minute.

Do you have your family

still with you in Hororata?

I’ve got two kids, my

daughter lives in Rolleston

now and my son is at the

moment overseas on a

two-year OE. He comes

back in a two months and

he’s part of the brigade. Just

me and my wife here at the

moment.

Big first-up test for Lincoln Combined

• By Jacob Page

Tom

Hooper

LINCOLN COMBINED will

start their UC Championship

rugby campaign with a tricky

home assignment on Saturday.

Under new coach Tom Hooper,

they will take on last year’s semifinalists

Rangiora High School.

Lincoln Combined had their

most successful season in the

competition last year, finishing

seventh but challenging for a

top-four spot over

the majority of the

season. They were

also undefeated

at their Lincoln

High School-base

during the roundrobin.

Lincoln

Combined beat

Waitaki Boys’

High School 17-7 on Saturday in

their final preseason game.

Hooper, who takes over from

Mike Wilson, said he is happy

with the squad’s preseason

work, which has seen them train

together for the past eight weeks

and get a 37-0 win over Mid-

Canterbury Combined.

The squad has 15 players

returning from last season,

including captain and playmaker

Wil Gualter.

Hooper said with the cyclical

nature of secondary school rugby

teams, he is keen to focus on

what his team does well to get off

to a strong start this season.

TEAM: Lincoln Combined are looking to improve on last year’s UC Championship rugby

campaign in which they finished seventh.

“Overall, I’m really pleased

with how the preseason has

gone,” he said.

“The squad is fit and any

preseason niggles we had are

clearing up and we have a good

base of players in our squad to

start the season,” he said.

He said it will be important

for his team to make the most of

their home games this season.

Hooper said if any teams

underestimate them, particularly

in the forwards where they have

been traditionally under-size, he

will welcome the challenge.

“We’ll be going into every

game respecting the teams we’re

playing and expecting to come

up against some really good

sides. We wanted to have a squad

that we felt could go the full

70min and we are confident we

have that.”

Hooper said he hopes the

boys who have returned from

last season have learnt from

their experiences playing

against traditional competition

heavyweights, like Christchurch

Boys’ High School and Christ’s

College, to improve their play in

crucial moments.

The team will face several

road trips this season with two

to Timaru to take on Roncalli

Combined on May 18 and

Timaru Boys’ High School on

July 6.

They’ll also head to Ashburton

to play Mid-Canterbury

Combined on June 1, and play

their penultimate round-robin

fixture in Nelson against Waimea

Combined on July 27.

Saturday’s game against

Rangiora High School at Lincoln

Unconventional Greenpark A

eye up another netball title

• By Jacob Page

DO NOT expect Greenpark A

to change their unconventional

approach when they start their

defence of the Selwyn premier

netball title on Saturday.

Last season’s champions,

who relied on their experienced

heads and did not train between

games, will be the team to beat

but all the coaches agree it is

hard to pick a favourite on paper.

Greenpark A co-coach Zaylie

Sullivan believes it will be “a very

even season.”

The 2018 competition was

one of the most competitive in

recent years, with Greenpark

A upsetting top-qualifiers

Broadfield A by one goal in a

thrilling final.

Five of the six teams return

this season, with Prebbleton

the new team after the grading

weekend a fortnight ago. They

take Rolleston A’s spot in the top

grade.

Sullivan said her team will

remain largely unchanged. “We

are all competitive during the

game, but once it’s done, we just

go home and get on with it,” she

said.

“We want to maintain that

balance with life. We always

want to make the top four, but

I get the feeling it will be a very

even season.”

Sullivan hopes to play less now

she is in the coaching role so she

will be able to see more tactically

from the sideline.

Broadfield A are looking to

go one step further this year

and started with four wins at

a preseason tournament in

Ashburton where they were

unbeaten. Coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill said it was a

chance for her team to get used

to combinations again and she

was happy with what she saw.

They will have the services

of experienced and accurate

shooter Maia Hill, while

defender Shan Hunt will also be

one to watch.

Greenpark B improved

immensely last season,

managing to earn a semi-final

spot.

Player-coach Mechelle

Harrison expects a competition

where even bonus points are

fought over.

“We have the core of our squad

back again and we’ve brought in

a few others to plug the gaps.”

she said.

“We feel our shooting circle

will be a work in progress, but

we have the time for that and we

believe that our combinations

as a whole will get better as the

season goes on.”

Lincoln coach Dawn Dalley

said there will be a youthful look

to their squad this year.

“We have five players who

returned from last year and four

new ones to the team,” Dalley

said.

“It’s quite a different looking

team to the ones we have had in

recent seasons.

“We have new players in

all areas of the court so those

combinations will take time.”

Shooter Hannah Wilson will

be vital for Lincoln, as will

Leesa Anderson in winning

turnovers in the mid-court.

“Defensively, we have a bit

of height, but that’s our most

inexperienced part of the

court.”

Dalley said the top four is still

their goal, but with no dominant

team, she expects a close

competition from top to bottom.

Southbridge coach Sarah

Ormandy believes she has

enough experience in her squad

to challenge for a semi-final spot

this year.

They will rely on experienced

mid-courters Kath Palmer and

Tylie McMillan.

“We’ve also got some height at

the defensive end so hopefully

we can be a contender,”

Ormandy said.

Meanwhile, Prebbleton

may be the newcomers, but

several squad members have

played together in the North

Canterbury ranks and they

certainly won’t be there to make

up the numbers.

“He gave me a really good

James Morris

Principal

Darfield High School

Community News—Term 1, 2019 Review

Principal’s Message

Welcome to our first

community newsletter for

2019. We communicate

regularly to our students

and families during the term

but we also want to share

with our wider community

some of the celebrations and

activities from the last term.

The educational success of

our children is based on the

partnership between school,

family and community so it is

important to keep in touch.

Cultural diversity and our acceptance of it, have

been an important topic of discussion over the last

few weeks. It is important that we give our students

opportunities to interact with a range of other

cultures so they will be equipped to be fully confident

participating in today’s NZ society and the rest of the

world. If students are unable to do this they will be at

a significant disadvantage in most workplaces in NZ.

We support students to experience diversity through

bicultural activities such as kapahaka, mihi whakatau

and opportunities to learn Te Reo. Multicultural

activities such as international exchanges and

the international student programme, mean that

students can interact and learn from a range of other

cultures too.

When we initially developed our school

expectations, one of these was to ‘Accept’ diversity.

On reviewing our expectations a couple of years

later we recognised that ‘acceptance’ of other

cultures is a low aspiration for ourselves and our

students. We reworded the expectation to ‘celebrate’

diversity to reflect more than just putting up with

diversity we aspire to see the value in it. Perhaps

the next step beyond this is to ‘embrace’ diversity.

This may lead us to a point where we don’t just see

the value in diversity we actively seek to learn from

other cultures and interact openly with them.

Congratulations to our students for their successes

with NCEA last year. Darfield High School had a

higher percentage of certificates achieved than the

NZ Decile 8-10 average for NCEA Level 1, 2 and 3.

There was also a big increase in University Entrance

attainment. A special assembly was held to present

certificates and badges to students who attained

merit and excellence endorsements.

In recent property developments our computer labs

have been moved to be a part of the Technology

block and two new science laboratories have been

developed. We have also commenced the design

phase of the refurbishment of E block – the oldest

block still remaining in the school and well overdue

for modernisation.

International Department

This year we welcomed 18 new international students in Term 1, joining our

15 returning international students. This takes us to 33 in total, which is our

highest number in recent times. These students have come from Japan, Austria,

Germany, Brazil and China.

At the beginning of each year the

International Department holds a

Picnic in the Park event at the Darfield

Domain for all the international

students and their host families.

Holding this event at the start of the

year is a great way for the international

students to spend some fun time

together, sharing food, playing games

and getting to know one another along

with their host siblings. Host parents

enjoy getting to know one another, and

catch up with the other host families

who have been hosting for several

years.

A big thank you to all the DHS buddies

who look after our new students so

well, and our staff, host families and the

community for warmly welcoming them.

For the last four weeks of Term 1, we have been hosting a group of ten students

from our partner Thai study abroad agency, Kiwicentre. During their programme,

the Thai students have experienced a range of outings and activities, as well

as studying in classes with their Darfield High School buddies. It has been

great to see the friendly way Darfield students have interacted with them, with

one student even greeting her buddy in Thai language – something that really

impressed the Thai students. At intervals and lunchtimes, they have loved joining

in basketball on the quad, as well as chatting with their new friends.

Shave for a Cure

Each year students and a brave teacher or two, take part in raising money for

Shave for a Cure, this year being no exception. An auction, was held for the

privilege of shaving or cutting a fellow students or teachers hair. Students paid

a gold coin to watch, and sponsors gave generously towards the Leukemia

and Blood Cancer Foundation. Well done to the students and staff who gave to

Shave for a Cure.

The event raised over $3000.

Arrowtown History Trip

The Year 13 History trip is an opportunity

for students to do practical research into

a founding part of New Zealand History,

the Otago Gold Rush. On the trip down to

Arrowtown the students had an opportunity

to walk around the historic Bannockburn

mining site, allowing them to gain insight

into how gold mining methods, such as

sluicing, impact the environment.

They then spent three nights in Arrowtown,

travelling around the district to visit sights

of relevance to the Gold Rush. Time was

spent at the Lakes District Museum, using

the Museum’s extensive archives and

wealth of unique resources, including old

newspaper articles, photos, diaries, original

documents, books, and more.

Marae Learning Experience

During week 6 the Year 10 Social Studies students

went on an overnight field trip to Onuku Marae and

Akaroa. On the way to the Marae, the students looked

around the Okains Bay Museum, and listened to Pere

Tainui (a descendant from Onuku Marae) talk about

the massacre that happened at the historical site of

Takapuneke.

They were welcomed onto the Marae with a traditional

Maori welcoming ceremony, slept in the Wharenui and

spent the next day experiencing cultural activities.

The trip was a great experience. Learning about the

history of New Zealand and a lot about each other.

Year 12 Leaders

Each Wednesday, our Year 12 Peer Support leaders

are working with our Year 7 students, helping them to

learn communication and co-operation skills through a

variety of teambuilding activities.

Junior Warriors at DHS

A DHS team won the Junior Warriors competition at

Hororata Highland Games 2018. On Friday 8 March,

a team of volunteers from the Hororata Highland

Games came to Darfield High School for a very

special Harraways Big Scottish Morning Tea. Country

Feast Catering provided caramel oat squares and

Anzac biscuits for all our students. Students also got

to have a go at tossing a caber, farmer’s walk and tug

o’ war. This was an event enjoyed by all.

CRUNCH: BDI’s Elliot Dodge’s puts a well timed tackle on Mark Maitland

during BDI’s 25-24 win over Waihora.

TRY TIME: Waihora centre Matthew Saunders crosses the line.

Rough weekend for Ellesmere rugby teams

• By Jacob Page

MOST OF the Ellesmere

teams will be looking for a

level of revenge on their North

Canterbury and Mid-Canterbury

rivals during round six of the

Combined Country competition

this Saturday.

Round five of the competition

saw upsets aplenty with Ellesmere

teams winning just two of seven

games against their sub-union

neighbours.

THe competition remains so

tight that with two rounds to go,

no team is yet guaranteed a playoff

spot.

THe biggest upset was perhaps

Burnham Dunsandel Irwell’s

25-24 win over defending

champions Waihora at Tai Tapu.

Waihora led by double digits

late in the game, however, 13

points from BDI’s Marshall Van

Jaarsveld proved crucial.

Waihora have now lost twice

this season, the same number of

defeats they had in the whole of

2018.

Lincoln further strengthened

their grip on top spot in pool C

after a 38-24 win over Saracens.

Lincoln coach Kris Partridge

said his team’s composure and

desire was the biggest plus during

the bounce back win after the

loss to Prebbleton the previous

weekend.

“We’re seeing improvement

game-on-game and results went

our way this weekend which

makes us look stronger but

certainly we are happy with how

we are going,” he said.

Veteran halfback Jason

Pietzner came off the bench for

game 297 in the six-try victory.

Not to be undone, Darfield

beat the previously undefeated

Southern 28-26 to leapfrog both

them and Waihora to the top of

pool A.

Two tries from experienced

prop, Scott McIlroy, including

the match-winner late, helped

Darfield come back from 21-7

down at half-time.

Prebbleton, fresh off their

centenary win over Lincoln, were

tipped-up by a resurgent West

Melton 22-19 in their pool C

clash thanks to a long-range drop

goal by Ashton Mulloy.

SPEEDSTER: BDI’s Visori Vanavana turns on the afterburners as he finds himself

in space.

West Melton had led 19-0

during the second half before

Prebbleton fought back late to tie

the game heading into the final

few minutes.

Mid-Canterbury teams got

the better of their Ellesmere

opponents in three close pool B

encounters.

Springston remain in second

in that pool in spite of a 25-24

loss to Methven in what was

a back-and-forth encounter

throughout.

THe result came in spite of

Springston scoring three tries to

two.

Top ranked Glenmark Cheviot

outlasted Southbridge 23-20 and

Ohoka edged Rolleston 32-29 in

spite of Rolleston’s impressive

comeback from 24-0 down at

the break with the wind at their

backs.

Hornby put in a much

improved performance but still

remain winless in pool C after a

34-31 loss to Ashley.

Rakaia beat Oxford 32-24 in

the pool B and C crossover game

and Celtic outlasted Hurunui

22-11 in pool C and Kaiapoi

thrashed Hampstead 66-26.

Key matches this Saturday

include BDI and Kaiapoi in

pool A, Springston Glenmark-

Cheviot for top spot in pool B

and Lincoln v West Melton in

pool C.

•Pool A: BDI 25, Waihora 24;

SELWYN TIMES

Kids getting active

this autumn

Over 4000 young people from 10 Selwyn schools will be getting active on their way to school for

the second annual ‘Active Autumn’.

Council’s Road Safety team are running the campaign in term two to encourage children at 10

schools to use an active mode of transport such as walking, skating, biking or scootering to get to

and from school.

Schools are provided with Active Autumn packs to educate families about active transport. While

children can take part in the W.o.W challenge, where they get a card stamped each time they walk

or wheel to or from school.

A colouring competition is also being held, with children challenged to develop their own road

safety message.

School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says there are physical and mental benefits for

children from active transport including better road safety awareness, independence, friendships

and physical fitness.

“Skipping the car ride also means less noise, less congestion, less visual pollution and cleaner air.

Burning less fuel saves money too,” Ms Hautler says.

Active travel can be a challenge to fit into an already busy day. Below are some ideas that you

may be able to utilise to get your child active:

· Park and stride – drop your child a short distance from school instead of at the gate. Scout out

a location where they can safely walk without crossing any major roads or entranceways. Make

this your meeting point after school too.

· Pick a route and get to know it – find a walking route that minimises the number of roads to be

crossed and avoids busy intersections, and get to know it together. Point out hazards such as

blind corners and discuss where to cross.

· Find some buddies – you may be able to take turns with other parents escorting a small group to

school. Better yet, organise a walking school bus or scooter train. Talk to your school about how

to set up a walking school bus.

Check out selwyn.govt.nz for more information about Active Autumn.

Rolleston town centre upgrades –

roading layout changes proposed

We’re seeking feedback on proposed changes to the roading layout

of Tennyson and Wordsworth Streets, which are planned as part of

the Rolleston town centre upgrade project.

The proposed roading designs for the Tennyson Street upgrades

and the Wordsworth Street extension are now available for the

public to view. For more information and to complete a feedback

form go to selwyn.govt.nz/rtc-design.

Tennyson Street upgrades overview

It’s proposed that Tennyson Street has a 30km/h speed limit

with 3.2m-wide traffic lanes, regular kerb extensions and raised

platforms. This design creates a safe environment for cyclists when

sharing the road with motor vehicles.

Some key design features include:

· capacity for forecast peak hour traffic volume of 500 to 600

vehicles per hour

· footpaths on each side of the road are wide while still providing

space for traffic lanes and parking. The paths on each side of

the street can also be used by cyclists (cycle lanes have not

been proposed).

Wordsworth Street extension overview

A pedestrian-friendly, slow speed environment is also proposed in

Wordsworth Street, which will be extended through to Tennyson

Street as part of the town centre project.

The configuration of the road has been designed to encourage

slow vehicle speeds and incorporates a narrow carriageway and

raised platforms at the primary pedestrian crossing points. The

existing cul-de-sac turning head will be removed because the road

will ultimately connect to the town centre. The street cross-section

provides space to accommodate two-way vehicle movement and

on-street parking. As with Tennyson Street, the design provides

footpaths that are a minimum of 3.5m wide.

The proposed configuration for the southern section of Wordsworth

Street has a 6m wide road with kerb and channel, a 1.8m wide

footpath on one side of the road and 2.5m wide shared path on the

reserve side of the road.

Some key design features include:

· designated space for vehicles, while pedestrians and cyclists will

be free to travel anywhere

· 33 parking spaces for users of the tennis courts, reserve and

Scout den along the road in a mix of parallel parking bays and

right-angle bays

· separate off-road car park with 12 spaces near the Playcentre.

Selwyn has a top team ready to respond in the case of any emergencies, the district’s new Civil

Defence Manager says.

Al Lawn, who took over as the council’s Civil Defence Manager in April, says he’s aiming to build on

the work done by the team recent years under former manager Ryan O’Rourke, former Emergency

Management Officer Tasha Black and current team members Sue Jenkins and Jason Flewellen.

“They have helped to create a Civil Defence team that is the envy of many in New Zealand. They have

done a brilliant job so I’m just following on their coat tails.”

A former policeman and volunteer firefighter Mr Lawn has worked extensively for Civil Defence in the

past five years including as the district’s Civil Defence Controller and as Recovery Manager after the

Port Hills Fire. He spent three weeks assisting with the management of the Civil Defence response

to the Kaikōura earthquakes and 10 months as a response manager in the northern South Island

overseeing the Ministry of Primary Industries response to the Mycoplasma bovis outbreak.

Having farmed near Lincoln for the past 20 years and serving

as a District Licensing Commissioner for five years he says he

enjoys living and working in the district.

His work includes ensuring the district is as resilient and

prepared, as best it can be, to respond to any adverse event.

That includes making sure resources are in place to enable

communities to respond through their Community Response

Teams and the district’s Response/Rescue Team. He encourages

Help keep our drains flowing

With autumn here and wind and rain on the way, drains can quickly become blocked with leaves. You

can help avoid flooding around your property and street by removing any leaves that are clogging

drains. Council contractors do regularly clear drains, but leaves can quickly build up especially in windy

conditions at autumn time.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

SELWYN TIMES

Towards an environmental

diamond

Giving up 20ha of grazing land to protect

the headwaters of the Selwyn River /

Waikiriri was a price well worth paying,

says Quartz Hill Station’s Dan Harper.

“We can’t put cattle in there now but the

positives outweigh the negatives by a long

way. We all have to give up a little for the

environment so for us it wasn’t a major,”

Harper says.

The Selwyn River/Waikirikiri starts in the

alpine foothills to the west of Glentunnel

and its upper reaches, barely more than a

stream, flow through Quartz Hill Station.

Looking after the environment has long

been important on the station. Before

Harper came on the scene, his father-inlaw

Colin Guild had bought a 20-ha block

of tussock land, protected under QEll

covenant, which he looked after and kept

weeds under control.

“Colin has always been aware of the

environment and tried to do things the

best way possible and we’re proud to be for advice.

associated with the covenants,” says Harper.

But it was Colin’s brother James, who

farms neighbouring station High Peak and

who is chairman of the QEll National Trust,

who suggested there was more that could

be done.

“They’ve done a lot of work down on High

Peak fencing off waterways, and James said

it would be good to carry on the work in the

upper reaches of the Selwyn. I just heeded

what he said and the penny dropped for

me that we do need to be looking after the

environment and doing our bit.”

Harper contacted Environment

Canterbury and then QEll’s Rangiora

office. It was agreed that fencing off a two

kilometre stretch of the river and excluding

stock would be a valuable way to protect

water quality.

“The whole process was very simple. The

three of us had a meeting, looked at the

area, decided what was best to do and we

went ahead and did it,” says Harper.

“The fence was quite a technical build

because there were a lot of little streams it

went across. Our contractor Warren Blue

did a really good job.”

Today Harper and his wife Georgie

run Quartz Hill and are part owners but

her parents Colin and Hillary still live on

the 3000-ha property and are available

Dan and Georgie have three

children, Flossie, 5, Marlow, 3, and Ardie, 1.

The station runs 1200 red deer hinds,

450 velveting stags, 5000 ewes and 600

cows. Another property, a 330-ha irrigated

farm, 10 km away on the plains, is used

for finishing the sheep and cattle bred on

Quartz Hill.

“It’s a big operation so it has taken me a

few years to get my head around the whole

thing,” says Harper. “There’re so many

classes of stock and getting your timing

right especially in here where the weather

can be quite harsh, is vital.”

But while running the business is a

demanding job, caring for the environment

in which they live has become more and

more important to Harper.

“I do love fresh water and fishing and eels

and all that sort of stuff, so one of the things

that really appealed to me is trying to make

sure this waterway is going to be here for

generations to enjoy.

“My children and their children will

hopefully see some benefit and I will too,

but if ECan and QEll weren’t there we

‘Looking after the environment

is important.’ Dan Harper of

Quartz Hill Station is helping

to protect the headwaters of

the Selwyn River.

wouldn’t have done it, well not for a few

more years anyway, because we’re just

getting going now in terms of production

so there’s not $80,000 just lying round.”

But that hasn’t stopped them from

extending the fenced area and soon another

200m will be fenced off, at Quartz Hill’s

expense.

Freshwater mussels have been found in

the waterway, but Harper is disappointed

not to have found freshwater crayfish

(kōura) which he remembers being

abundant in streams on the Hawke’s Bay

farm he grew up on.

“I’m working on trying to reintroduce

them and it might not be easy. Don’t ask

me why they’re not here but the first thing

I can do is fence off the waterway and that’s

got to be a start.”

Harper is well aware that out on the plains

the Selwyn River / Waikiriri, which flows

into Te Waihora / Lake Ellesmere, has more

than its share of environmental concerns

over water quality, but believes that doesn’t

apply in the hills.

“I think all the stations up here have done

a great job and we’re trying to carry that

on. We’re all very proud of the water that

enters the Selwyn – it’s pristine and we’re

very proud of that and we’ll keep doing it

that way.”

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Farmers focused on

climate change

New recently released research shows

farmers are focused on sustainability and the

impacts of climate change more than ever.

The survey, by Nielsen Research, was

commissioned by the Ministry for Primary

Industries through the Sustainable Land

Management and Climate Change Research

programme.

“These latest results show that 92 percent

of farmers are focused on making their farm

more environmentally sustainable, up from

78 percent in the last survey of 2009. That’s

really heartening,” says Agriculture Minister

Damien O’Connor.

“Some of the specific actions farmers

mentioned were riparian/shelter planting,

waterway control, improved fertiliser

management and more efficient irrigation

systems. This gives us a really valuable

understanding of what is front of mind for

farmers.

“Slightly disheartening is that only 23

percent of farmers anticipate an increased

focus on reducing their greenhouse gas

emissions in the next five years, so that’s

something for us all to work on.’’

Minister for Climate Change James

Shaw says that the results of the survey are

consistent with expectations.

“The survey shows that farmers have a

better understanding of what they are able

to do on-farm to be more environmentally

sustainable, with the exception of

greenhouse gas emissions reduction – an

area where we know farmers feel they need

more information and advice.

“The Biological Emissions Reference

Group (BERG) report told us that there

are lots of solutions emerging, but that the

situation varies from farm-to-farm and so

solutions need to be tailored.

“That’s why we are now investing in

developing that advice and integrated farm

planning tools. We need to support farmers

and growers to transition to sustainable

land-use through planning and informed

decision-making.

“Last year the government consulted on

the Zero Carbon Bill, which showed the

need to give certainty and direction on the

pathway to a low-emissions economy. We

will also soon receive the recommendations

of the Interim Climate Change Committee

on addressing agricultural emissions. This

will help us move forward and provide the

certainty that will enable rural communities

to make long-term decisions,” Minister Shaw

says.

Minister O’Connor says farmers face a

changing climate.

“They need to prepare to cope with the

intensifying weather effects of climate

change and at the same time reduce their

environmental footprint – that takes

investment in infrastructure, and means

you need to be financially viable.

“The Coalition Government is scoping the

development of resources and information

for farmers to fill the knowledge gap in

ways to reduce emissions, working with

the sector to develop practical on-farm

knowledge.”

The full report is available at www.mpi.

govt.nz.

Key statistics

92% focus on making their farms more

environmentally sustainable. Specific

actions mentioned show an increase,

notably riparian/shelter planting, waterway

control, improved fertiliser management

and more efficient irrigation systems (up

from 78% in 2009).

63% of farmers express interest in

further information or advice about

improving resilience to climate change.

Managing severe weather events such as

droughts, floods, and harsh winters is most

commonly mentioned.

Half of farmers think their farm and

business is moderately or majorly impacted

by current climate or severe weather

patterns – this has not changed since

2009 (52% vs 51%). But the proportion

of farmers reporting no impact at all has

halved, from 19% to 10%.

59% anticipate a moderate or major

impact over the next 20 years.

46% saying that clear government policy

guidelines will help them take action.

27% of farmers have placed a moderate

or major focus on reducing their GHG

emissions in the past 5 years (compared

with 31% doing so in 2009).

46% of farmers have actively sought

information about land management

practices or climate change issues in the

last 12 months than in 2009 (down from

62%).

58% said financial assistance, incentives

or subsidies are most likely to encourage

action to make their farms more

environmentally sustainable. Seeing

initiatives work on other farms/businesses

similar to theirs increases farmer

confidence that actions will be effective.

Nothing prickly about Citroen’s Cactus

SELWYN TIMES

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

WHEN CITROEN’S Cactus first

made its way onto the global market

it raised eyebrows everywhere

with its styling.

The cheeky five-door hatchback

was unorthodox, to say the least,

with its heavy frontal styling and

controversial bubble wrap-type

Airbumps on the doors which

protected the bodywork from

damage. Nevertheless, buyers

warmed to the Cactus, and it has

been pretty much a success in all

of the markets it’s been sold in.

In New Zealand Citroen isn’t

a big player, but if you study the

product line-up you’ll find practical,

affordable vehicles which are

thoroughly appealing through

design flair. I guess, you’d expect

nothing less from this French car

maker which has had a reputation

for bold styling cues as they are a

considerable part of the appeal.

A new Cactus has just been

released, and while it incorporates

the styling elements of its predecessor,

it is a little more orthodox

and gone are the Airbumps which

were a major talking point on the

original.

That’s a bit of a disappointment

to me, I liked the concept,

and anything practical on a car

that keeps it looking fresh and

dent-free certainly finds favour

with me.

Gone, too, is the predecessor’s

diesel engine, the Cactus arrives

here in just one specification and

it gets a 1.2-litre turbocharged

three-cylinder engine which is also

used in Citroen’s C3 and Peugeot’s

2008. I’ve experienced this engine

before in both those cars and can

safely say it is one of my favourite

engines of this design, it is quiet,

smooth, and doesn’t overly let

the occupants know of its design

through the harmonics often associated

with its three-pot layout.

The twin-camshaft petrol

engine is listed with a 81kW

and 205Nm rating, these are

healthy outputs, and if you take

into account the light weight of

the Cactus at just 1090kg, it is

a lively model under acceleration.

Citroen claim a standstill to

100km/h time of 10.9sec which

is all the acceleration you need in

today’s motoring environment.

Drive is channelled through a

conventional six-speed automatic

transmission, together there is

reasonable harmony and gearing

CITROEN CACTUS: Economical three-cylinder engine.

which manufactures that lively

performance along with healthy

fuel economy.

The latter is listed by Citroen

at 5.3-litres usage per 100km

(53mpg) on a combined cycle

average. The evaluation car’s dash

display was constantly sitting

around 6.7l/100km (42mpg).

If you also take into consideration

the Cactus’ weight, then it

has benefits in all areas, the engine

isn’t working hard to maintain

momentum, hence the light fuel

load, and there is a feel through

the chassis and suspension that

promotes a sporty sensation.

The suspension deserves a worthy

mention. Anyone familiar with

Citroen product will relate to the

hydropneumatic and air suspensions

systems of eras gone by.

The Cactus doesn’t get anything

quite to sophisticated; however, it

• Price – Citroen C4 Cactus,

• Dimensions – Length,

• Configuration – Threecylinder,

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10.9sec

• Fuel usage – 5.3l/100km

does get what Citroen describe as

magic carpet ride engineering.

Put simply, what appear to be

conventional shock absorbers

actually incorporate two hydraulic

stops, one for compression and

one for decompression, they dissipate

energy from road bumps,

helping to create a smooth ride.

In effect, the ride is well cushioned,

I had an errand to run

over the far east side of the city,

and broken roads on that journey

were a good test for the suspension,

the Cactus has a controlled,

comfortable ride. It can also

attack corners, there is strong

steering feel, turn-in is also direct

and precise.

In my introduction I mentioned

the Cactus’ styling. It isn’t

radical as it could be, but it is a

departure from the norm. The

interior is modernistic and minimalist

in its detailing, however,

it all works cosmetically. You can

also mix and match with interior

trim colours and materials.

I particularly like the permanently

exposed panoramic roof

which is out-of-the-ordinary but

also adds to the character of the

car, it was a $1500 option, but it

represents the ideology of Cactus.

In terms of specification, the

Cactus is also well appointed. You

get all of the kit you’d expect on a

$35k car with many of the functions

operated by voice recognition

technology. I guess one omission

is the lack of tachometer.

That aside, the Cactus incorporates

all things practical in a

modern, stylish package. It’s a

compact five-seater, but also a

funky purchase for anyone who

dares to be different. The last

model sold well in New Zealand,

and I’m expecting the newcomer

to be just as popular.

Checklist for selling

your home

Make small fixes

Inspect your home with a buyer’s eyes,

and correct the flaws that are most

egregious (if affordable) or can be

relatively easily fixed—from repairing

cracks in the walkways to repainting

dingy walls or oiling creaky hinges.

Select the best real estate agent

For a commission, an agent will take care

of many details you may not want to be

bothered with (placing ads, fielding calls,

making signs, etc.) and bring experience

to the table. To find a good one, ask

friends and relatives, then interview

several candidates.

Set a price

A real estate agent will give you a market

analysis free of charge or commitment.

Ask a few to get a broader picture of the

market. Check out

comparable listings

yourself in the real

estate section of

your newspaper or

on websites. Then

decide whether you

want a quick, easy

sale or the highest

possible price.

Clean & declutter

Weed out excess

furniture,

knicknacks, and

“stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give

it away, sell it at a garage sale, or put

it into storage—so the house seems

more spacious and buyers can imagine

themselves in it.

Stay vigiliant about maintenance

Keep the lawn mowed, shrubs trimmed,

gardens weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

Ready your home for open days

Hide pocketable valuables, display fresh

flowers or bowls of fruit, bake a batch of

cookies for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

Decide whether to do your own

building inspection

It may save you time, especially with

older homes, to identify—and potentially

solve—problems your buyer’s inspection

will discover later.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

WiFi in

the home

Greg Horton

WiFi is revolutionising the way we use

electrical features in the home with people

now able to control plug adaptors and light

bulbs with WiFi fitted control modules.

This significant electrical trend has

in effect led to do-it-yourself home

automation where Smartphones and plugin

modules control lighting, power points,

security settings and other home electrics.

“The sky is the limit with almost

anything electrical able to be operated by

WiFi with control modules fitted behind

power points, light fittings and light

switches,” says Greg Horton, owner of

Juice Electrical.

External WiFi modules are now

available. These allow people to remotely

operate lights and other electrical

appliances by simply plugging them in.

WiFi controls can also be fitted behind

electrical fixtures, work which must be

carried out by a registered electrician. This

is not only for safety reasons. It is a legal

requirement that a competent licensed

professional complete such installations.

Not observing the law could threaten your

insurance cover should there be a fire or

other problem requiring a claim.

When building new, there is

considerable potential to be innovative in

your home automation. However, Greg

says WiFi operated modules can easily be

installed behind switches after the build

with a retrospective approach allowing

time to budget for this feature.

Greg says it is also a good idea to live

in your new home for a while so you can

decide where you want modules installed.

Existing lights can be configured later

to change the way they are grouped, an

approach which is more cost effective than

rerouting wires.

“Out-buildings with floodlights can be

a nuisance if sensors turn on and off all

night. With WiFi, modules can be fitted

so you can remotely control the lights via

a Smartphone or additional WiFi switches

inside the home. This is particularly

helpful for lifestyle block owners and

farmers,” explains Greg.

An added advantage of WiFi is when

away from home. Security lights can be

controlled from anywhere in the world.

Greg says outdoor speakers are also

becoming a thing of the past. Bluetooth

speakers with a permanent power supply

can be inserted in the ceiling of the living

area, bathroom or outside roof eaves. You

can then access your music playlist from

your own Bluetooth device, cellphone, or

even a friend’s cellphone, creating a type

of ceiling version of a mobile UE boom

which never goes flat.

WiFi controls can also be fitted behind electrical fixtures.

Protecting your family’s privacy and

security when holding an open home

When selling a property, many people

are uncomfortable with the idea of

strangers looking through their house

when they’re not present. However,

holding an open home is often the best

way to show off the place to potential

buyers.

Welcoming house hunters (and let’s

be honest, a few nosy neighbours) to a

property does come with privacy and

security risks that vendors should be

aware of – and plan for.

“It’s natural for sellers to have concerns

about privacy and security – after all,

you’re inviting complete strangers into

your family’s home,” says Real Estate

Authority (REA) Chief Executive Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

Lampen-Smith suggests sellers prepare

by taking note of any items of sentimental

or monetary value that should be removed

from the property.

“Think about items that could easily be

slipped into a pocket or handbag, such as

jewellery, silverware, small electronics or

even the prescription medication stored

in your bathroom cabinet. Tucking them

away in your sock drawer or under your

bed won’t do the trick,” Lampen-Smith

says.

Something that’s often overlooked by

sellers opening their house to potential

buyers is the risk of identity theft. It might

sound far-fetched, but sellers who leave

important documents like passports,

bank statements or credit card receipts

lying around are leaving themselves

vulnerable. Lampen-Smith recommends

these sorts of documents be tidied away

and stored somewhere secure.

Next, do a digital sweep of the property.

The family PC or office desktop should

be switched off and password protected.

USB sticks or hard drives that are loaded

with personal information should also be

stored securely.

“While this might sound like plain

old common sense to many, I’ve heard

of a seller leaving a post-it note with the

house alarm code right next to the alarm,

for anyone to come back and deactivate

later,” Lampen-Smith recalls.

Sellers should talk to their real estate

agent or salesperson about how the actual

open home will be conducted.

“Ask if there will be a sign-in register,

where visitors provide their name and

contact information when they arrive at

the showing. This is a helpful tool for the

agent when it comes to following up with

potential buyers, and, in the case that

something is damaged or stolen during

the open home, the information can be

passed onto police,” Lampen-Smith says.

The agent is required to be present at

the viewing and shouldn’t leave potential

buyers alone at the property. Ideally,

the agent should accompany visitors as

they tour the house, but this isn’t always

possible if the showing gets busy. Sellers

could ask that a second person from the

real estate agency be on-site during the

open home, to greet visitors at the door,

ask them to sign in and wait until the

agent is free to show them through.

Sellers who still feel uneasy about

having an open home could ask the agent

to show the property ‘by appointment

only’ to potential buyers.

“There’s no law saying you must have

an open home. Remember, it’s your

house and ultimately you don’t have to do

anything you’re uncomfortable with,” says

Lampen-Smith.
