Protest to beat the burnout

ANNA PROVAN, Kirby

Streeter and Kaitlyn Tinworth

have only been teaching for five

years.

But they say it feels like it has

been a lifetime – and teacher

burnout is a real thing they deal

with.

The Cashmere, Christchurch

Boys’ and Christchurch Girls’

high school teachers were part

of the thousands of primary,

intermediate and secondary

teachers that took part in

yesterday’s industrial action.

They rallied in Victoria

Square at 11.30am before

marching to the Ministry of

Education building on Hereford

St.

Ms Provan said it was to help

make sure the profession was

valued not only by teachers and

students.

“But the whole country. The

Government, the private sector,

everyone.”

And Ms Streeter said the

problem wasn’t pay alone.

on ‘hit’ list

• By Barry Clarke and

THE TWO policemen who

captured the March 15 terror

accused were on a list compiled

by Russian, and Nazi fanatic, Troy

Dubovskiy.

The Star can reveal today, not

only did Dubovskiy send worrying

emails

to a school he

lived close to,

but he also appears

to have

targeted the

two policemen

who stopped the

alleged gunman

on Brougham St

after the attacks

Troy

Dubovskiy

on the Al Noor and Linwood

mosques.

Armed police raided

Dubovskiy’s St Martins home

on March 26 after believing the

former Russian soldier was a

serious threat. Emails to the school

were the catalyst for the raid.

The house was empty but they

found an AK-47 assault rifle,

several hundred rounds of ammunition

and a list which had the

two police officers on it.

Nazi uniforms, helmets and

clothing along with other World

War 2 memorabilia and other

extremist content was found at

Dubovskiy’s home.

Mild winter may be on the way

IF YOU have enjoyed the balmy

May weather – more could be

on the way.

Blue Skies Weather and

Climate Services Ltd owner

Tony Trewinnard said there is

no indication this winter will

be any warmer, colder, wetter

or drier than normal.

However, Christchurch

should expect to see more

south-westerly winds than

usual, he said.

“Obviously what is

coming up in the next

10 days is good example

of that . . . while southwesterlies

often make

things cold, this isn’t

always the case.”

“We have had a lot

of south-west winds

through the month of May and

yet our daytime temperatures

Tony

Trewinnard

have been quite mild.

Our night times have

been fairly cold and we

have had some light

frosts and that’s typical

when you get southwesterlies.”

“But that doesn’t

mean that’s going to be

the pattern all through

the winter, there will be periods

where the wind flow comes

from all directions,” said Mr

Trewinnard.

When comparing the

predictions of this season to

previous similar seasons, Mr

Trewinnard said we could see

more cloudy days.

“(We could see) a number of

cloudy days and nights, which

could produce less frostiness.

That could be one of the

characteristics we see.”

Making election waves

• By Julia Evans

AFTER 40 years on the

airwaves, James Daniels now

wants to make waves at the city

council table.

The 64-year-old veteran radio

DJ will take on David East for

the Coastal Ward in October’s

local body elections.

It comes a week after medical

supplies salesman Kelly Barber

announced he would also contest

the seat for Labour-aligned The

People’s Choice.

Mr Daniels grew up in the

area, attending South, Central

and North New Brighton

schools.

“This community is me. I’ve

grown up in Union St, Gresham

Tce, Collingwood St, Rae Lane,

Brentwood St, Marriotts Rd and

still live in Betula Pl, so I know

the area, its history, its issues and

the fact that we’ve been let down

by the city’s governors,” Mr

Daniels said.

The current low point is the

state of our ward. There are

still too many house and basic

infrastructure repairs to be

started or completed.”

He is best known for his

40-year broadcasting career

– including being one half of

‘James and Ken’ with Ken Ellis

in the 1980s and more recently

co-hosting The Breeze breakfast

show with Hilary Muir.

But he has also held

governance roles for 25 years.

Mr Daniels spent almost 20

years on the tribal council for

his iwi Ngai Tahu, two terms on

the board of Touch New Zealand

and a foundation director of

More FM.

He is currently on the board

of Ngai Tahu Property Ltd, with

roles in media and charitable

sectors.

The council needs people with

proven, good governance skills

because we have some strategic,

yet complex, difficult decisions to

make,” Mr Daniels said.

“I’ll bring energy, expertise

and a fresh perspective to the

process . . . this area is where I

grew up and where I will grow

old.”

Mr Daniels said New Brighton

Rd was “embarrassingly broken”

and should be only for fourwheel-drives.

The Estuary edge and

Southshore are also in need of a

lot of work and proposed rates

rises are too high, he said.

Incumbent Cr East knows Mr

Daniels well – he was a few years

ahead of him at Shirley Boys’

High School. “I never thought

I’d go into this election without

competition and I respect his

right to have a go.”

Cr East said they both have

long family connections to the

area and he wasn’t going to take

Mr Daniels’ candidacy lightly.

“I’m not going to pick holes in

my opposition, I’m going to let

my own track record speak for

itself.”

STAND-OFF: Police spent three hours negotiating with Troy

Dubovskiy before he died of a suspected suicide.

Russian sent email, had list

•From page 1

That prompted a major

operation across the city.

Dubovskiy was found in his

vehicle in Richmond several

hours later.

After a stand-off the 54-yearold

was found with critical stab

injuries in the early hours of

March 27 and later died. His

death is suspected suicide.

At the time Canterbury police

chief, Superintendent John Price,

said Dubovskiy was a “significant

threat to the community.”

Investigations showed

Dubovskiy supported the actions

of the mosque gunman, police

said. But no connection had been

established between the two.

Police chiefs did not respond

yesterday to questions from The

Star about the two officers on

Dubovskiy’s list.

The Police Association, which

is the police officers’ union, and

is involved in welfare issues, said

the matter fell into the police operations

category, and also would

not comment.

Meanwhile, a 27-year-old will

appear in the district court on

Tuesday after he was allegedly

caught with a large amount of

cash in a safe, methamphetamine

and a sawn off shotgun on the

day of the terror attacks.

The motorist was spotted by

one of the many police patrols

scouring Christchurch for

the mosque gunman driving

suspiciously in Strickland St,

Spreydon, and stopped.

Police would not say yesterday

how much money was in the safe,

but The Star understands it was

about $170,000.

He is a facing charges of

possession of methamphetamine

for supply, unlawful possession

of a firearm and unlawful

possession of ammunition.

Parents

warned of

• By Sophie Cornish

PARENTS OF school and preschool

children in Aranui and

Wainoni have been warned about

a sex offender living in the area.

Letters were sent to parents

of children attending St James

School, Haeata Community

Campus, Just Kids Community

Preschool, E Tipu E Rea Early

Learning Centre, The Walnut

Tree Preschool, BestStart Wainoni

and Te Kotahitanga Ki Waitaha

“Department of Corrections

staff have met with us and the

Ministry of Education to advise

that they are managing a person

living in our community who is

on sentence for sexual offences

against children,” said the letter.

It says the purpose of the letter

is to share the information with

parents and to provide a timely

reminder to have conversations

with children about keeping

themselves and others safe.

The offender has already been

living in the community for some

time while continuing with a

rehab programme.

The person is living in accommodation

a safe distance from

any school or childcare facility, is

visited regularly from probation

officers and is GPS monitored.

They are some of children’s

A hike in the rabbit population

K5 released in Heathcote,

Brooklands, Horseshoe Lake,

Bexley and Avondale at the end

of June.

On the McLean scale of one

density, biosecurity experts

scored the areas four. That’s an

increase since last spring, which

has led to the virus’ release

and someone putting up the

The New Zealand Transport

Agency – which manages the

roundabout – is aware of the

crosses, said maintenance

contract manager North

“But [it] is not planning to

paying attention to their driving.”

Mr Stratton said the agency

Bradley said.

NZVA chief veterinary officer

Helen Beattie said some pet

rabbits in the area will have

some immunity from previous

vaccinations, but others will have

no protection.

“Rabbits vaccinated against

previously released strains of the

calicivirus are likely to have some

take up to 21 days to become

effective. Calicivirus is spread

by direct contact with other

rabbits through insect vectors,

such as flies and fleas, or by

contact with contaminated

objects. It kills rabbits within 12

Water strategy for next 100 years

• By Julia Evans

A PLAN to cover the next 100

years of every aspect of the city’s

water is in the pipeline.

An integrated strategy to

manage the water supply, wastewater,

stormwater, surface water,

groundwater and flood management

for the next century is being

developed by the city council.

Water

accounts for 25

per cent of the

city council’s

projected

spend over

the next 10

years with

Helen

Beaumont

$10 billion

budgeted for

it in the Long

Term Plan.

The strategy is a high-level

overarching strategy developed

to consider water resources

and water services, values and

demands, and set a framework

to help the council to manage

them in an integrated way for

at least the next 100 years,” city

council water supply programme

manager Helen Beaumont.

The point of the plan is to

address 11 “key strategic issues”

relating to water.

•Different perceptions of the

value of the waters.

•Poor state of some waterways.

•Vulnerability of

PIPELINE: The city council is developing an integrated

strategy to help manage the city’s water, including

flooding, for the next 100 years.

•Wastewater overflows and

•Treated wastewater discharges

•Stormwater discharges and

•Flooding and flood management.

anticipated effects of sea level rise

on water resources and related

infrastructure.

news online at www.star.kiwi

•Long-term availability of

water for water supply.

•Long-term sustainable wastewater

treatment and disposal.

•Infrastructure efficiency and

resilience.

It includes short, medium

and long-term goals such as

achieving a high standard of

surface and groundwater quality,

increasing awareness within

the community and adapting to

climate change.

The review of the strategies

began back in 2015 and external

costs to date total $302,350, for

stakeholder workshops, development

of a working draft strategy,

and external stakeholder reviews,”

Ms Beaumont said.

Staff costs are in addition and

come out of existing budgets for

policy development.

Aotearoa Water Action Group

spokesman Peter Richardson

said it was a great move by the

city council.

“I think it sounds absolutely

fantastic. Our councillors have

shown such leadership in the

water space,” he said.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said it was an important process

for the whole community to

engage in.

“Water is such a fundamental

thing for our community and

particularly with all that we’ve

been through.”

However, he was worried that

the process was being rushed.

“I think this is really an

important document for us as

a city, it’s really important we

spend as much time as required

to really embrace the ideas from

across our city to make sure

we get something people buy

into.”

Public consultation on the

strategy is expected to take

place next month after the draft

is approved by a city council

working group.

Plan for city’s

future set to

be signed off

• By Julia Evans

A REPORT on settlement

patterns which will shape the

region for the next 20 years could

be approved tomorrow.

The report, titled Our Space, is

set to be endorsed by the Greater

Christchurch Partnership – a

group made up of mainly

local councils, Environment

Canterbury and Ngai Tahu – at its

meeting tomorrow.

It looks at how expected

settlement patterns will unfold

in the greater Christchurch area,

and what space and infrastructure

will be needed for the growing

population and businesses by

2048.

It said there would be enough

space for housing in the next 10

years. However, the area may need

another 12,750 homes within 30

years. It also said an ageing population

and more people living

alone meant a higher number

of single-person dwellings

would be needed.

Sixty-five per cent of the growth

should be in Christchurch, 20 per

cent in Selwyn and 15 per cent

in Waimakariri, the draft report

said. In 30 years, the population

of greater Christchurch is

expected to be between 618,000

and 742,000.

“It was just something that

His son, Andrew Judson, said

he organised the skydive with an

initial “apprehension.”

“I said to him that I would

pay for it but that he had to get

checked out by the doctor first.

He went straight in and got his

clearance,” said Andrew.

of the skydive.

actually did it,” said Mr Judson.

One of the family members

was his 94-year-old sister who

flew down from Auckland for

the first time since before the

Christchurch earthquakes to

watch her brother take the

plunge.

“It was really great to have

her down here for it,” said Mr

Judson.

Mr Judson said he had “never

met a friendlier bunch of people”

than the team at Skydiving

Kiwis.

His instructor, Dakota Keen,

said the entire skydive “flowed

really nicely.”

“I was a bit nervous at the start

because he has had a couple of

health issues but we saw through

them and he did everything he

was asked to do.”

Mr Judson was the oldest person

Mr Keen had ever been in a

tandem with.

“It was amazing, it was a great

honour for me,” he said.

As far as the next item on Mr

Judson’s bucket list goes, he said

he is just focussed on reaching

his next birthday.

But he does have one ultimate

goal – which is to do another

skydive when he gets to his

100th birthday.

SIX CONTROVERSIAL lights

proposed for Hagley Oval could

loom over the park at nearly 50m

tall.

The Canterbury Cricket Trust

has outlined plans for six 48.9m

permanent lights around the

oval after it asked Regenerate

Christchurch for help using postquake

legislation to change the

cricket pitch’s resource consent.

By comparison the lights at

Christchurch

Stadium are

44m.

Trust

chairman Lee

Robinson said

the initial plan

was for four

retractable lights

up to 48.9m

Robinson

high when fully extended and

30.9m high when unused. But he

said the “home of cricket,” Lord’s

Cricket Ground in London,

warned against retractable lights.

“Lord’s Cricket Ground,

that currently has retractable/

removable lights, have advised

that they are currently going

through a planning process to

change their lights and they

have strongly recommended this

type of retractable lighting be

avoided,” he said.

“It is accepted in the cricketing

world that fixed lights are

a more appropriate alternative

than retractable lights, as they

more easily meet guidelines and

technical specifications.”

The lights were estimated to

cost $6m to $8m and the trust

would fundraise to cover the cost.

The trust’s board includes

central city landowner

and property developer

Peter Guthrey and former High

Court judge Sir John Hansen.

However, Hands Off Hagley

chairman and group member

Martin Meehan said the height

of the permanent lights would

ruin the “vista” of Hagley Park,

sitting above the treeline.

“It’s all a bit like a duck paddling,

all the action is taking place

48.9m lights may tower over Hagley

underwater,” Mr Meehan said.

“It’s one thing after another.”

The Star revealed work needs

to be fast tracked so the city can

be selected to host games in the

2021 ICC Women’s World Cup

later this year.

Lights are necessary for the

ground hosting international

day-night fixtures and broadcast.

But the oval’s current resource

consent also has constraints on

the number of major fixtures,

spectator numbers, traffic and

parking requirements that would

be addressed.

“Hagley Oval cannot host

large international events as it

currently stands and is not fit for

purpose for those events it does

host,” Mr Robinson said.

The trust wants to address

issues through changing the

District Plan using section 71 of

the Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Act 2016.

It is heading to the United

Kingdom to lobby potential

sponsors next month.

The purpose of the

Canterbury Cricket Trust’s

trip to the United Kingdom

is to share information with

interested parties, including

potential donors,” Mr Robinson

said. “This is including the intent

to apply for consent for fixed

lighting.”

Plan to manage

Northern Corridor

traffic may change

• By Julia Evans

CHANGES MAY be on the cards

for the plan to manage traffic

from the Northern Corridor.

The $240m New Zealand

Transport Agency project will

finish on Cranford St when it is

completed mid-next year. It is

expected to increase the traffic

volume through St Albans by 30

per cent.

A $10 to $15 million plan by

the city council to deal with

traffic from the motorway

through to the central city

was met with backlash from

St Albans residents who said it

would divide the suburb and

make the road unsafe. Instead an

alternative plan was developed by

ViaStrada director Axel Wilke,

including bus lanes and express

bus services.

City council staff have

recommended high-occupancy

lanes in a city-bound direction

north of Innes Rd, part of Mr

Wilke’s alternate plan. The

Downstream Effects Management

Plan is set to be approved by the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

and Papanui-Innes community

boards tomorrow. The report said

the lane may “eventually” be redesignated

as a bus lane.

Mr Wilke was “astonished” but

pleased with the changes at such

a late stage in the planning.


I felt so empowered,

the course gave me

so much courage

and so many tools to

use in my business.

The central city library is one

Ships likely breach Akaroa regulations

• By Louis Day

CRUISE SHIPS in Akaroa

could be operating in breach of

harbour regulations – and with

the knowledge of Environment

Canterbury.

Naval architect Harry

Stronach has been investigating

the issue for months and says

cruise ships in

Akaroa were

likely to be

in breach of

regulations and

disturbing the

seabed.

Harry

Stronach

The Regional

Coastal

Environment

Plan for the

Canterbury region limits seabed

disturbance to a total of 50 m3

in any three-month period,

for any coastal area outside an

operational port.

Akaroa Harbour is not classed

as an operational port.

Mr Stronach said any ship

of over 40,000 gross tonnage,

which is 90 per cent of cruise

ships visiting Akaroa, was likely

to cause a seabed disturbance at

least 10 times the permitted level,

per visit.

This would be a breach of

Section 338 of the Resource

Management Act, said Mr

Stronach.

Environment Canterbury’s

regional harbourmaster Jim

Dilley acknowledged cruise ships

were most likely in breach of the

Coastal Plan but said there was

not sufficient evidence to prove

it.

“Environment Canterbury

has openly acknowledged

that anchors of the large ships

may disturb a larger volume

of the seabed than permitted

under the Coastal Plan, but

without evidence of any

adverse environmental impact,

enforcement action is not

warranted,” he said.

“Environment Canterbury is

mindful of the potential for any

adverse environmental impact

and has commissioned an

environmental risk assessment

for Akaroa Harbour, to be

conducted by scientists with

coastal marine environment

expertise.

“We have also initiated a code

of practice with cruise ship

operators. While voluntary, the

code identifies the concerns

raised and how these may be

mitigated. It will be introduced

before the 2019-20 cruise

commitment to protocols

an offence against this section

Popcorn and sneak-thievery

sniffling and groaning.

Before the dreaded

lurgy took hold here Laura

had some time out with

a friend and fellow mum

while I took Vittoria to the

movies. Alone.

We have taken her to the

movies before, but when

she was a proper wee baby.

With her being a full-on

toddler, I was worried

about how it would go.

The session I picked had

a lot going in my favour. It

was a special screening for

parents with small kids and

we were watching Pokemon

Detective Pikachu.

Bright colours, fun characters.

Attention-grabbing,

with a healthy amount of

adult humour and nostalgic

value for a former

Pokemon Red aficionado.

In theory, good for both

of us.

We managed to get there

the perfect amount of late

to watch only the better

trailers.

The start time also lined

up with Vittoria’s lunchtime,

which was great as

she is food obsessed. It will

give you angelic behaviour

and blissful silence for as

long as the food lasts.

Vittoria happily sat, had

her lunch and was watching

so cheerfully that I

started mentally planning

regular daddy/daughter

movie dates.

That lasted until the dialogue

turned to some fairly

key story points. At that

Vittoria as much freedom

to explore as possible but

I’m lucky the theatre was

pretty empty as she just

booked it down the line of

seats, ran down the stairs

and explored.

With offers of popcorn

and other snacks, I

managed to limit her laps

around the theatre to the

manageable and enjoy the

whole film.

It wasn’t until the climactic

she turned it up to “oh no”.

Teen model’s passport to success

• By Matt Slaughter

WHEN BRIDIE Lancaster-

Butcher was eight, her mother

entered her in her first beauty

pageant.

The reason – to boost Bridie’s

self-confidence.

Now, the 13-year-old Avonside

Girls’ High School student is one

of 35 young models worldwide

who have been selected to attend

the Fashion Passport 2019

modelling workshop on the

Amalfi Coast in Italy.

She is the only New Zealander

who has been invited to the

workshop, which will take place

from June 25 until June 30.

Bridie said getting this opportunity

was a dream come true.

“I always wanted to like, do

something overseas and go quite

far and stuff and then when I

found out I was going to go do

this I was really, really excited

because it was kind of like, my

dream.”

Her mother was shocked for

more reasons than one when she

heard the news.

Said Deb Lancaster: “I didn’t

think she’d get in and I was just

like, holy s***, she got in, how are

we supposed to pay for this?”

She said the workshop alone

would cost more than $3000,

but their fights were booked and

she’d do just about anything to

see her daughter succeed.

Bridie said she was excited for

the opportunity to work with

fashion designers Adrianna

Ostrowska Couture, Bel Ange

ESTELLA Hungerford and Ava

Henderson will represent New

Zealand at the ISA world junior

surfing championship later in

the year.

The Taylors Mistake pair have

been named in the 12-strong

New Zealand junior squad to

travel to the championships.

The location for the

championships is expected to be

named in the coming weeks.

Estella is one of three surfers

Couture and Disney Channel star

Chelsea Kane during the workshop.

Bridie moved to Kalgoorlie

in Australia with her mum in

2009 and built up quite the modelling

resume before returning to

Christchurch last year.

She has appeared on the covers

of A’ La Mode Child-Teen

Magazine and Paris Chic Kids

named in the NZ under-18

girls team, while Ava is one

of three girls in the under-16

team.

Last year, Estella was part of

the New Zealand team which

finished 12th in the 44-team

competition at Huntington

Beach, California.

Meanwhile, Ava will make her

first appearance at the event.

Ava, 14, has burst onto the

national scene following a

Magazine and featured in a number

of others.

Off the back of her modelling

success, Bridie has also chosen

to raise awareness of the work

Heart Foundation NZ do, because

she said heart conditions

had impacted those close to her.

She said modelling was a huge

part of her life, but she made sure

standout summer which saw her

win the under-16 girls category

of the national Billabong Grom

Series.

She has competed well

beyond her years, winning a

number of nationally ranked

under-18 and under-20

competitions.

Estella, 17, has also been in a

recent rich vein of form which

saw her win the South Island

open title in April.

to work just as hard at school.

“I’m just at school like head

down, bum up, just get all your

work done, stay focused. Then,

when modelling comes around,

try and like, balance it out and

put school first, but still put all

your effort into modelling.”

Bridie said her friends at school

called her “the humble model.”

her ultimate goals.

A well-being budget is just what New Zealand needs

I HAVE BEEN looking forward

to today when the world’s

first well-being budget will be

revealed.

I recall as a Minister being

frustrated when I couldn’t get

buy-in from a colleague to invest

in a programme even though

the benefits would be realised

in their portfolio – a classic case

when we plan and budget in

silos.

I am hoping today that we

will see a whole of Government

approach that includes local

government when it comes to

budgeting for well-being.

I remember a former Youth

Court judge saying: ‘A kid in

sport, stays out of my court.’

When you start to think of a

well-being budget without silos,

then our city’s sports and

recreation facilities, funded by

our residents, can help to reduce

expenditure by taxpayers in the

criminal justice system.

I heard on the news this week

that there were insufficient

funded medicines for type II

diabetes, something which can

be preventable with a balanced

diet and good exercise.

So again our sports and recreation

facilities can not only save

enormous costs on our health

system, they can literally save

lives.

The prime minister said

nobody wants to live in a country

where, in spite of a strong

economy, families are homeless,

where our environment is being

rapidly degraded and people

with mental health issues do not

receive the support they need,

and where we have shocking levels

of family violence and child

poverty.

I’m hoping today that the

Government recognises the

opportunity to get rid of all the

silos and co-invest with us to

make a real difference.

NUTRITION’S ROLE

IN MENTaL HEaLTH

In recent decades, scientists discovered an

uncomfortable truth: What we eat affects

our mental health.

Julia Rucklidge is a professor of

Clinical Psychology in UC’s Psychology

department and the Director of the

Mental Health and Nutrition Research

Group. Her interests in nutrition and

mental illness grew out of research

showing poor outcomes for individuals

with significant psychiatric illness despite

receiving conventional treatments for their

conditions.

In the last decade, Professor Rucklidge and

her lab have been running clinical trials

investigating the role of broad-spectrum

micronutrients in

the expression

of mental

illness,

specifically ADHD, mood disorders,

anxiety and stress. She is passionate about

helping people find alternative treatments

for their psychiatric symptoms and being

a voice for those who have felt let down by

the public healthcare system.

Professor Rucklidge has over 100 peerreviewed

publications, has given invited

talks all over the world on her work on

nutrition and mental health, and her

work is often featured in the media. An

award-winning researcher, she received

the Ballin Award from the New Zealand

Psychological Society, a Braveheart

award for her contribution to making

Christchurch a better place to live, and

was named among the most influential

women in New Zealand Innovation &

Science in the Women of Influence 2018

awards. Her 2014 TEDx talk has been

viewed close to a million times.

6 TIPS

TOWaRD MORE

UNDERSTaNDINg

Understanding is a key characteristic needed in all aspects of life. Here are six helpful

reminders for better understanding.

1. Bring empathy -- the skill of putting yourself in someone’s shoes - to all of your

interactions

2. Listen actively

3. Look past first impressions

4. Recognize that most people are self-centered, not cruel or mean-spirited

5. Pay attention to body language to better understand a person’s mood and intentions

6. Note that people, in general, do what is best for themselves

My passion is to teach people

simple yoga techniques which they

can then use as tools for their own

mental health support and physical

wellbeing. Originally from the

UK, Helen transplanted to New

Zealand four years ago. She is the

owner of Yoga Live, an online yoga

platform, which enables her clients

to participate in a yoga class from

the comfort of their own home.

Helen’s philosophy is, “In order to

understand ourselves and others

well, it’s important that we calm our

mind down using our bodies. When

we can pause and listen to our

thoughts with movement, we are

able to see life clearly.”

Try these 5 poses and stretches to

bring calm into your mind and

body.

STaNDINg PRayER

Come to stand with your feet

together or slightly apart. Bring

your hands together in-front of your

chest. Gently lift your toes off the

floor, spread them apart and pop

them back down again. Take some

time to focus on your breath and

how it sounds and feels. Notice the

pressure and warmth of your hands.

Be aware of your feet as you use

your muscles to balance. Stay here

for 1 minute.

CHILDS

Come to all fours and open your

knees wide, bring your big toes

together and gently guide your chest

and head to the floor as you reach

your arms over your head onto the

floor. Relax through your hips and

belly and enjoy taking a few deep

breaths. Stay here for 1 minute.

PaLM TREE

Come to stand with your feet under

your hips. As you inhale reach your

arms out and up over your head,

at the same time coming up onto

the balls of your feet. Hold the

breath in at the top. On your exhale,

draw your arms towards each

other behind you, squeezing your

shoulder blades together and lower

your arms back to your side whilst

lowering down onto your heels.

Repeat 6 times.

CaT/COW

Come onto all fours, with your

hands directly under your shoulders

and knees under your hips. If you

have any issues with your knees, pop

a blanket underneath or curl your

toes under. With an inhale, drop

your belly to the floor whilst lifting

your tailbone up to the ceiling and

gazing forward. As you breathe out,

curve your spine up to the ceiling

and tuck your head into your chest.

Push the floor away with your hands

to open up. Repeat 6 times.

SEaTED STRETCH

Come to sit with your legs crossed

and a cushion under your bum.

Reach your arms out to the side and

as you inhale reach your arms up

and over your head. As you breathe

out, lower your arms back down to

your sides. Repeat 6 times.

DEMENTIa LINk

exercising

Dementia is an umbrella term used to

describe a group of symptoms that affect

how a person’s brain works. 60,000 Kiwis

have dementia & that number is expected to

almost triple by 2050.

While Dementia can affect anyone, the

chances of developing dementia increase as a

person ages.

The most common form of dementia is

Alzheimer’s disease with two out of three

of those diagnosed with dementia having

Alzheimer’s.

Symptoms vary between individuals, but

common ones include changes in memory,

thinking, behaviour, personality and

emotions which have an impact on a person’s

everyday life.

Dementia is progressive, with the changes

that affect the brain slowly spreading and

making symptoms worse.

There has been no single cause linked with

the onset of dementia however research

released in 2014 in The World Alzheimer

Report suggests that there are some simple

steps people can take regarding their lifestyle

in order to reduce the risk of dementia in

later life. They recommend that: ‘what is good

for the heart is also good for the brain’ and

that any changes to lifestyle factors can have

an impact, meaning it’s never too late to start

making health improvements.

Maintaining healthy weight, exercising

moderately and regularly and eating a

well- balanced diet will help prevent high

cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes

and obesity in the short term and in the long

term reduce your dementia risk. Being a

nonsmoker and consuming alcohol at safe

levels can also help.

Just 30 minutes a day, five days a week is all

that’s needed to ward off a range of lifestyle

diseases and conditions, and is the minimum

level recommended to reduce dementia risk.

When we think of exercise, we should also

include mental activity as well as physical. By

learning new skills and completing mentally

challenging activities can help keep you alert.

Social contact is one of the benefits of group

exercise. Whether it’s walking with company,

taking a class, or heading to an exercise

facility or gym, getting amongst like-minded

people while getting active is a fantastic way

to keep social and healthy.

If you are worried about someone you love

displaying symptoms of dementia, or if you

are experiencing these symptoms yourself,

then an appointment with your GP is the first

step, as an early diagnosis means treatment

and management can begin. But don’t wait

for the signs, start now by reducing your risks

by getting active and making healthy lifestyle

choices today.

WEBBER

MUSIC

aT ITS fINEST

When Showbiz Christchurch wrapped up the

2018 season of Broadway Hitmen, they knew

from audience feedback there was a great

desire to hear more music from composer

Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The upcoming concert The Music of Andrew

Lloyd Webber was devised by Lloyd Webber

himself.

Showbiz Christchurch is renowned for

producing shows that could easily be at home

on Broadway or the West End. The Music of

Andrew Lloyd Webber is proving to be even

more popular than recent Showbiz concerts,

with the Grand Circle of the Isaac Theatre

Royal recently opened for sale for those who

weren’t quick enough to purchase tickets

when they went on sale at the end of last year.

Each musical vignette from The Phantom

of the Opera, Cats, Whistle Down the

Wind, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor

Dreamcoat, Song and Dance, Evita, Jesus

Christ Superstar and Starlight Express

features between two and four songs

performed by a full 33 piece on-stage

orchestra – the CSO. They’ll be sharing

the stage with 14 soloists from amongst

Canterbury’s top performers – some wellknown

to Christchurch audiences and some

new talent. There will also be a 30 strong

on-stage chorus, 21 ballet, Latin and musical

theatre dancers, and a children’s chorus

from Impact Dance and Stage School who

will perform numbers from Joseph and the

Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Whistle

Down the Wind.

“Some parts of the show will have 90 people

on stage at one time,” says Stage Manager

Mandy Perry who will be supported by a

team of Assistant Stage Managers to help coordinate

such a big cast. The set will feature

a series of asymmetrical raised platforms for

the orchestra designed by David Bosworth

of 4th Wall Theatre Services, and a concave

cyclorama which will provide a canvas for

lighting designer Grant Robertson of The

Light Site. “Everybody that’s working on the

show is really going to get a chance to show

off!” says Atlas “It will be gorgeous.”

PUZZle

As lawyers, we are required to meet with you and take your

instructions in order to help you complete the particular legal

task you are planning. Sometimes when we do this, we need to

take a little extra time to consider your mental capacity to make

decisions.

Mental capacity is a client’s capacity to make a decision.

Decision making requires that a client:

• understands the decision they are having to make

• can discuss with us the possible options available to them in a

way that shows they appreciate the risk and or benefit of those

options

• understands the impact that a decision, or the lack of a decision,

may have on them or their loved ones

• is able to articulate and discuss all of the above with us.

It is important to note that the level of capacity required isn’t the

same in every situation. For example, to make a Will, the legal

test is whether the client knows they are making a Will and the

effect of doing so, whether they understand the extent of the

assets they are dealing with, whether they comprehend the moral

claims which they ought to give effect to, and finally whether

they are free of any disorders of the mind that could distort their

decisionmaking.

However, when giving instructions to complete Enduring Powers

of Attorney, the test is lower and is satisfied if a client understands

the broad consequences of granting an enduring power of

attorney and can process the relevant information and appreciate

the nature and effect of the power they are giving.

Having these discussions with our clients is difficult. It can be

very confronting, both for our clients and for us. In a worst case

scenario, our clients can be very offended by us questioning their

capacity. This is not our intention. Our intention is to ensure that

the legal outcome our clients have set out to achieve, has the best

possible opportunity to succeed.

We are aware that if there is a likelihood that our client’s decision

might be challenged, one of the first questions that may be raised

is whether our client had the capacity required to make the

decision in the first place.

The best way of mitigating this risk is to

undertake a capacity assessment prior

to completing your legal work with

your health professional. It is best that

the assessment be scheduled as close as

possible to the appointment to complete

the legal work required.

At Harmans we have a specialist seniors

team to help you through the process of

setting up your legal deeds and dealing

with any queries you may have. Contact

Phillipa Shaw on 352-2293 to arrange an

appointment to discuss your situation.

Alan gilmore and Pamela Kilmartin with 1m telescope.

Sprinkled in star dust, four University of

Canterbury (UC) scientific alumni and staff have

been honoured, featuring among six Kiwis chosen

to appear on new ‘New Zealand Space Pioneers’

postage stamps.

Professor Beatrice Tinsley and Sir William

Pickering were, respectively, instrumental in

modern astronomy theory, and in helping to

launch the United States space programme.

Astronomers Alan Gilmore and Pamela Kilmartin

are still actively conducting research. All four

space pioneers are considered leaders in their

respective fields.

aLaN gILMORE & PaMELa

kILMaRTIN

Long-serving staff members of UC Physics and

Astronomy, Gilmore and Kilmartin have been

observers at UC’s Mount John Observatory,

Tekapo, since 1980. Fellows of the Royal

Astronomical Society of New Zealand, they

track Near Earth Objects such as asteroids and

comets which may be a long-term threat to Earth.

Together they have discovered 41 minor planets, a

comet and a nova.

They work with the country’s second-largest

telescope, the one-metre McLellan reflector,

which was built in UC’s workshops and installed

at UC’s Mount John Observatory in 1986.

BEaTRICE TINSLEy

‘Queen of the Cosmos’ Beatrice Tinsley was one

of the most creative and significant theoreticians

in modern astronomy. She graduated from the

University of Canterbury with an MSc in Physics

with First Class Honours in 1961. She then

completed her PhD on the evolution of galaxies at

the University of Texas in just two years.

After a one-year fellowship at the Lick

Observatory of the University of California

she took up an assistant professorship at Yale

University, before becoming Yale’s first female

Professor of Astronomy in 1978. That year she

was diagnosed with melanoma. She continued to

publish until shortly before her death in 1981. Her

academic career spanned only 14 years, but she

produced 114 scientific papers, had an academic

prize and a visiting professorship in astronomy

named in her honour.

SIR WILLIaM PICkERINg

Sir William Pickering was one of the world’s

leading space scientists; a titan of the US space

programme. He was a senior NASA luminary,

who pioneered the exploration of space.

Born in 1910 in Wellington, he developed an

interest in stars at high school and studied

engineering at UC before moving to the

California Institute of Technology. After finishing

his degree in electrical engineering and unable to

find work in New Zealand, he returned to Caltech

to complete a Master’s degree followed by a PhD

in Physics in 1936.

Made a professor in charge of radio and

electronics, he was also appointed to the Scientific

Advisory Board of the United States Air Force.

During World War 2 he worked in their Jet

Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). By 1954 he was the

lab’s director where his scientific ability and sense

of diplomacy enabled him to work with scientists,

politicians and military officials. He remained

there for 22 years.

He had success with various unmanned

spacecraft, appeared on the cover of Time

magazine twice, and saw his work with Ranger

VII spacecraft confirm the moon is not covered in

dust. He retired from JPL in 1976 and kept close

New Zealand ties. New Zealand awarded him an

honorary knighthood, which would sit among

personal messages from five US presidents. UC

presented him with an honorary doctorate in

2003, before his death in 2004.

RESEaRCHER

WINS TOP US aWaRD

A University of Canterbury engineer’s work on

liquefaction-induced land damage following the

Canterbury earthquakes has been awarded a

prestigious international engineering award.

When the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes created

a city-wide outdoor research laboratory, UC

Civil Engineering Professor Misko Cubrinovski

gathered as much information as possible.

His prolific output of technical reports and case

histories has been recognised by the American

Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which is

presenting him with the 2019 Ralph B. Peck Award

for “outstanding contributions to the geotechnical

engineering profession through the publication

of several insightful field case histories”. He is

only the second recipient from outside of North

America to receive the ASCE Peck award in its 21-

year history.

Professor Cubrinovski’s career in geotechnical

earthquake engineering began in the 1980s when

he was involved in the seismic design of nuclear

power plants in Europe, with soil liquefaction a

principal concern. He then spent 15 years in Japan,

from 1990, working with pioneering liquefaction

researcher Professor Kenji Ishihara at the

University of Tokyo.

In 2005 Professor Cubrinovski moved to New

Zealand and joined UC, little knowing that

six years later he would be at the centre of an

earthquake event that produced unparalleled

soil liquefaction, which is when a material that is

usually a solid behaves like a liquid.

The ASCE award is the latest international

recognition. Professor Cubrinovski was

part of the teams whose research papers on

liquefaction-induced land damage assessment

in residential Christchurch won the 2016

Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI)

Outstanding Paper Award in San Francisco, the

2016 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

Norman Medal (the society’s highest honour for a

technical paper), the 2018 NZGS Geomechanics

Lecture Award, Outstanding Paper Awards from

ASCE and EERI, the Ivan Skinner Award, and

ANZ Joint Societies Award.

Professor Cubrinovski has authored or coauthored

over 300 technical publications and

worked as a geotechnical specialist and advisor on

over 50 significant engineering projects. He is a

faculty of the Rose School, Pavia, Italy and a Fellow

of the University of Tokyo, Japan, as well as a

Principal Investigator at QuakeCoRE | Te Hiranga

Rū: The New Zealand Centre of Earthquake

Resilience, based at UC, leading the flagship

research programme ‘Liquefaction impacts on

land and infrastructure’.

THE VITaRa

TURNS 30

BY ross KiDDie

12

living

life

Motoring

I have to keep reminding myself, the Suzuki Vitara

has nothing in common with its stablemate, the

Grand Vitara, other than the name.

The most notable reason for this is the Vitara

doesn’t sit on a ladder chassis, it has a monocoque

platform and, in contrast, it has an engine that sits

east-west in the engine bay.

Of course, that makes it a lot softer than the goanywhere

Grand, its four-wheel-drive system will

take you places seriously off-road.

However, the Vitara does have four-wheel-drive

on some variants, but mostly it is a vehicle which is

based around two-wheel-drive (front) mechanicals.

For 2019, the Vitara has just undergone a fairly

healthy facelift, it includes a raft of new equipment,

mostly for safety, but there is also new frontal

treatment and a host of cosmetic upgrades inside.

The Vitara has never been short on safety kit, it

has always had a five-star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating, but the new inclusions

keep it well in touch with what buyers expect in a

new car purchase.

The Vitara lands here in five variants, starting

from $27,990 and ending at $38,790. The range is

interesting, buyers have the choice of two fourcylinder

petrol engines, a naturally-aspirated

1.6-litre or a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit. The

1.6 offers the choice of manual or automatic

transmission, the turbo engine is automatic and, as

I’ve mentioned, two and four-wheel-drive options

sit along the way.

The evaluation car was the range-topping All-Grip

turbocharged model, and with two-tone paint adds

$800.

Under the bonnet, the 1373cc engine is rated with

strong power outputs for its size. Suzuki claim

outputs of 103kW and 220Nm, both realised low in

the rev band at 5500rpm for power with a long flat

torque curve stretching from 1500rpm to 4000rpm.

That’s the secret to its performance, the engine feels

strong right through the rev band, it is eager and

drives smoothly through a six-speed conventional

transmission.

Performance is surprisingly swift, the turbo

Vitara will lunge to 100km/h in 9sec. However,

what Suzuki does best is fuel economy relative

to performance. It claims a 6.2-litre per 100km

(46mpg) combined cycle average, which is pretty

tidy when you consider the turbo boost, although it

must be considered, unlike the naturally aspirated

unit, the turbo engine needs 95 to 98 octane.

The Vitara steers keenly into a corner and has

definite directional accuracy. This from a sport

utility vehicle which is firmly aimed at the family

transport market. The suspension is biased towards

the soft side, but there’s just enough firming in the

springs and dampers to arrest body roll in a corner

and absorb rough surface undulations. Bear in

mind, too, there are drive modes which enhance

grip depending on the surface encountered – auto,

snow, sport and diff lock.

The Vitara’s all-round performance is

commendable, the turbo engine adds an element of

fun for the driver; along with the benefits of strong

mid-range boost it is a safe, quick vehicle when

overtakes present themselves.

Mostly, though, the Vitara is there as a comfortable

five-seater for those who like what mid-size SUVs

offer. While rear seat occupants don’t have a huge

amount of leg room, space back there is acceptable,

and the bonus is there’s a healthy 375-litres of cargo

space behind the rear seats. With those folded

forward up to 710-litres can be carried inside.

For 30 years Vitara, in its many forms, has been a

solid seller for Suzuki. If you look at the number

which grace our roads, NZ-new and imports,

suggests it is a force to be reckoned with.

If you don’t need the capability of the Grand, then

the Vitara is still a worthwhile purchase. As much

as I like the fun element the turbo model offers,

I’d be a manual entry-level buyer At $28k it is a

bargain offering, and with all Suzuki models it will

have longevity on its side, the result of the quality

the company builds into all of its models.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

LEMON DRIZZLE SLICES

Ingredients

BRAISED LAMB SHANKS

Ingredients

2 Tbsp olive oil

8 lamb shanks

1 onion, roughly chopped

2 carrots, roughly chopped

few sprigs fresh rosemary

3 fresh bay leaves

4 garlic cloves, left whole

2 Tbsp plain flour

1 Tbsp tomato purée

350ml white wine

500ml lamb or chicken stock

Directions

Heat oven to 180 deg C. Pour

the oil in a casserole dish or

roasting tray large enough to

fit all the shanks. With the pan

set over a high heat on the hob,

spend a good 10min browning

the lamb all over.

Remove the lamb, add the

onion and carrot and cook for

10min until starting to brown.

Stir in the herbs and garlic and

cook for a few minutes more. Stir

in the flour and tomato purée,

season well then pour over the

wine and stock.

Return the lamb shanks to the

pan. Bring to a simmer, cover

with a lid or tightly with foil and

cook in the oven, undisturbed,

for about two hours until lamb

is tender. Remove the lamb from

the sauce and set aside.

Put pan back on the hob and

bubble the sauce down for about

15min until rich and glossy. Pass

through a sieve into a jug. The

lamb and sauce can be stored in

the fridge for two days or frozen

for one month. To serve, reheat

the lamb in the sauce, adding a

splash of water if the sauce is too

thick.

For the cake

70g softened unsalted butter

120g caster sugar

2 medium eggs

140g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

Finely grated zest one lemon

1 Tbsp lemon curd

2 Tbsp full-fat milk

For the drizzle topping

30g granulated sugar

Juice one lemon

For the feather icing

250g icing sugar

3 tbsp water

Splash of yellow food colouring

Directions

Heat oven to 180 deg C. Line

a 20 x 20cm baking tin with

baking parchment.

Using an electric whisk, beat

the butter and sugar together

until pale, light and fluffy. Add

the eggs and mix again. Add

the flour, baking powder, lemon

zest, lemon curd and milk,

and mix with a wooden spoon

until all the ingredients are

thoroughly combined. Pour the

mixture into the prepared tin

and bake for 25-30min or until a

skewer comes out clean. Mix the

sugar and lemon juice together

and pour over the hot cake.

Leave to cool in the tin. You can

eat the cake as it is, or for a fancy

finish, try making this feather

icing.

Mix the icing sugar with just

enough water to give a runny,

but not watery, icing. Put a small

amount of icing in a separate

bowl. Add a few drops of the

food colouring to the icing

until pale yellow. Spoon into a

disposable icing bag. Remove

the cake from the tin and

peel off the baking parchment.

Sit the cake on a wire rack

over a baking tray.

Spread the white icing over

the top. Pipe thin lines of the

coloured icing across the width

of the cake. Use a cocktail stick

to drag through the lines in

opposite directions to create a

feathered effect.

Leave to set before cutting into

slices.

GARDENING ADVICE

Today’s winning question

came from Lucy McCall.

Congratulations!

My question is about roses

Q this time of year. Mine

have a bit of rust, so I

have lightly trimmed

the bushes as they are so

unsightly. Does that matter so

close to winter? What is

the best time to prune in

Christchurch?

A

Wait until your rose bushes are completely

dormant e.g when all the leaves have fallen

from the plant before carrying out the annual

pruning. If you prune before the plants have

become dormant there is always the chance

of new growth appearing soon after the pruning is

completed. This growth will come to nothing e.g. no

flowers when winter sets in.

While rust and black spot can be disconcerting on the

leaves of your roses, it’s preferable not to lightly prune

your plants at this time. Remember to collect all fallen

rose leaves and remove from the rose garden to lessen

the possibility of reinfection next spring.

A cleanup spray of copper oxychloride and or

lime sulphur applied after winter pruning will

help reduce the impact of any overwintering

black spot and rust.

Bring life to your winter garden

CONTRAST: Sweet peas

should now be in full bloom.

WHILE THE beginning of

winter can be wet, cold and

miserable, there are still many

important tasks to be carried

out in the garden, such as

harvesting winter vegetables,

completing annual pruning,

planting new fruit trees and

watching newly-planted

strawberries break into

growth.

Winter vegetables should

now start maturing and will

be ready for harvesting (if

they aren’t already).

Results will be that much

more improved where vegetable

gardens have been raised

to avoid waterlogging over the

wet winter months. Continue

distributing compost around

vegetables to help absorb excess

water from typical winter

downfalls.

Vegetables to harvest

include broccoli, brussels

sprouts, cabbage, carrots,

cauliflower, celery, leeks, lettuce,

parsnips, silverbeet and

spinach.

Continue sowing seeds of

broad beans, onions, peas,

radish and spinach directly

into well prepared and

drained soil.

Old crowns of rhubarbs can

be divided and replanted into

permanent positions around

600mm apart. Rhubarb thrives

in rich soil so add plenty of

compost when planting

Winter displays of annuals

should now be in full

bloom, including alyssum,

calendulas, lobelia, nemesias,

pansies, poppies, primulas,

snapdragons, stock and sweet

peas.

All these flowering annuals

can also be successfully grown

in containers or large tubs and

brings life to dull parts of the

garden or decks during winter

months.

MAZDA 3 HATCH: Polymetal grey is a new colour to complement the range.

New Mazda 3 sedan and

hatchback launched

THE SEVENTHgeneration

Mazda 3 will

launch in New Zealand

next week in two body

styles – sedan and

hatchback.

It also offers buyers the

choice of two engine options

and three grade variants

in both body styles.

Based on a less-is-more

design philosophy, both

body styles offer two very

distinct personalities.

Mazda New Zealand

managing director David

Hodge says he was stunned

by the look and feel of both

when he first saw the vehicles

and expects a similar

reaction from the New

Zealand motoring public.

There has been a move

towards SUVs due to

rational factors such as

cargo capacity and higher

ride points, but the Mazda

design team deliberately

steered away from trying to

appeal to those who have

adopted SUVs.

“Instead, they stayed

true to the factors such as

design and driving dynamics

that have made the

Mazda3 such a popular

vehicle in New Zealand and

delivered them in a way

never seen before in this

segment of the market,’’ he

said.

To enhance the premium

look and feel of the

cabin, higher-grade materials

that offer better tactile

and visual qualities have

been used.

The seats have been designed

to support the body

so that the occupant’s core

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

remains stable throughout

the driving experience. The

front seats firmly support

the pelvis and maintain the

natural S-shaped curve of

the spine. The seat cushion

and lower seatback provide

the support needed to keep

the pelvis in an upright

position and the upper

seatback bolsters the gravity

centre of the rib cage.

The Mazda3 has also

been designed to eliminate

noise, vibration and harshness.

New technologies and

build techniques ensure

unwanted sound doesn’t

enter the cabin.

Under the bonnet the

2-litre engine is rated with

a 114kW power output and

has a claimed combined

cycle average fuel consumption

figure of 6.2-litre per

100km.

The 2.5-litre engine has

139kW and a 6.6l/100km

fuel usage figure. This

engine has a cylinder

deactivation system which

switches between two and

four-cylinder operation to

increase fuel efficiency

The media launch of the

new Mazda 3 was held on

roads in North Canterbury

in hatchback models.

Initial driving impressions

were those of competence

and surety.

In a departure from a

rear suspension, the new

Mazda3 has a totally new

torsion beam set-up with

an emphasis on ride quality

without jeopardising handling

performance.

Along with the new suspension,

Mazda engineers

and three tyre companies

have developed special tyre

compounds for the new

model, the construction

of the tyre is designed for

maximum sidewall flex,

providing comfort, without

jeopardisng tread contact

with the road surface.

That along with revised

spring and damper rates

help produce a controlled

but supple ride. Both the

2-litre and 2.5-litre variants

showed they had ample

power and willing engine

behaviour.

All Mazda 3 models have

a five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program

safety rating.

The model line-up has

changed to reflect the high

level of craftsmanship, refinement

and specifications.

As a result, the range starts

with a GSX model priced at

$36,595 and two grades –

GTX and Takami have also

been added to complement

the model line-up.

The Mazdacare maintenance

programme has also

been enriched with the

launch of the new model.

Every Mazda3 will include

a five-year unlimited kilometre

warranty, including

on-call roadside assistance

and scheduled servicing

for five years or 100,000km

(whichever occurs first) at

no extra cost.

Senio ensures players have a voice

• By Gordon Findlater

KEVIN SENIO has gone from

being the voice behind the

Crusaders forward pack to a

voice for the latest generation of

players.

Senio played 25 games at

halfback for the Crusaders

between 2006 and 2007, scoring

two tries. He has now returned

to his roots in Auckland and

works as a player services

manager for the New Zealand

Rugby Players’ Association.

The role involves helping

players have their say on issues

such as the structure of the Mitre

10 Cup and Super Rugby.

“New Zealand rugby have

their consultation processes

and then the players through

our body have those discussions

and give feedback around

what the future looks like in

an employment environment,

how the competition looks

and through to any types of

initiatives which are good for the

game,” said Senio.

He grew up playing league

in Auckland before moving to

union at the age of 12. He played

his secondary school rugby at

Liston College in Henderson

before joining Kelston Boys’

High School where he earned a

spot in the New Zealand Schools

team.

After school, he played club

rugby for Ponsonby and was

part of the New Zealand Colts in

1998 and 1999.

He had seasons with Auckland

and Counties Manukau.

However, he moved to Bay of

Plenty in 2003 to get extra game

time. In 2004, he achieved one

of the greatest moments in his

career, helping the Steamers win

the Ranfurly Shield for the first

time when they upset Auckland

33-28.

After making seven

appearances for the Chiefs in

2005, the Crusaders came calling

as they sought a replacement

MANY SPORT nuts who like to

think of themselves as somewhat

of an expert when it comes to

predicting a result will have

inevitably dreamt up the idea of

betting on sport for a living.

This is also commonly known

as having a gambling problem,

and to most folk seems like an

unrealistic dream as soon as you

realise the easy results to predict

offer bugger-all due to the fact

most bookies, such as the TAB,

have their own experts who are

probably smarter than you and I.

However, what if the bookies

didn’t know their stuff? What

if you could bet on the local

reserve rugby team, which the

TAB haven’t put the time or

resources into researching and

the odds were in your favour?

This is a reality for anyone who

considers themselves a club level

football expert in Christchurch.

Half-price tickets

Some Crusaders fans will

only have to pay half-price

for tickets to the Rebels

game at Christchurch

Stadium on June 8. The

offer applies to everyone

who attended a Crusaders

home game this year.

These fans will receive

for Justin Marshall. He quickly

made a decision to join the

Crusaders – a side with which

Senio knew he could achieve

success.

“History speaks for itself in

terms of their success and I was

really curious to experience

something new and progress

myself as a player,” said Senio.

He admits he was initially

overwhelmed by the

expectations which came with

filling Marshall‘s boots.

Bet365 – an online betting

company, based in the United

Kingdom – offers betting on

the Mainland Premier League,

Canterbury Championship

League and even the Mainland

Premier League reserve league.

You can also bet on the Women’s

Premier League and Canterbury

Women’s Championship League.

The ability to be able to bet on

a local amateur sport as deep as

the third-tier surely comes with

some question marks. It’s worth

noting the majority of players

in the MPL reserve league are

There was definitely an

internal pressure I put on myself

and that was a bit of a dilemma

for a while . . . probably halfway

through the campaign, I became

more settled and comfortable in

my own skin,” said Senio.

During his time at the

Crusaders, Senio battled for

playing time with a young Andy

Ellis. However, he says the battle

for minutes on the field only saw

the pair grow closer off the field.

“I’ve got a really good

relationship with Andy. Even

today he’s just witty, quick and

always playing jokes and pranks

on everyone else,” said Senio.

“That first time together away

was awkward because you’re

both competing for the same

position, but you suss each other

out and then just have a bit of a

giggle about it and get over it.”

Senio started at halfback for

the Crusaders in their 19-12 win

over the Hurricanes in the 2006

Super Rugby final. He played

on this later).

The best money to be made

was in the opening weeks of the

Christchurch United were

HELPING OUT:

Kevin Senio and

DJ Forbes (far

community rugby

initiative with

the New Zealand

Barbarians.

MOVING SOUTH:

Kevin Senio played

for the Crusaders

between 2006 and

2007.

11 games in the 2007 season

before moving to France to join

Castres Olympique. Although

he eventually adjusted to the

language and the culture, he

admits it was a shock to the

system at first.

There was a lot of head

nodding and even making

animal noises and gestures to

try and figure out what you’re

eating,” he said.

“In terms of what we

understand, leadership and how

you contribute to a successful

environment was flipped upside

down on its head, especially at

Castres. We would have changed

coaching staff three times in that

first year . . . it was definitely a

cut-throat system,” said Senio.

“If we played well, then we

would go out for a beer later,

but if we didn’t we would stay

at home because we were too

worried about being picked apart

by the locals – that’s just the way

it is.”

In 2009 Senio joined ASM

38 goals and conceded just two

goals.

However, in week one the UK

bookies kindly offered up more

than $2 for Christchurch to

defeat Parklands United, which

they did 4-0.

Newly-promoted MPL team

Western United – which are

currently third in the league –

were reportedly given long odds

in the early part of their season

against teams they could have

easily been predicted to beat after

some solid recruiting in the offseason.

There was also the case of

regular powerhouse Ferrymead

Bays having half their squad

raided in the off-season and

being at extremely kind odds to

drop points early in the year.

The other thing that must be

considered if betting on our

amateur football leagues is that,

unlike the English Premier

Clermont Auvergne and helped

them win their first Top 14 title

in 2010. He played a number

of seasons for the club before

returning to New Zealand in

2014 where he has since worked

for the NZRPA.

Senio played a handful of

matches for the Ponsonby

premier side after coming

home with the likes of Rieko

Ioane, Akira Iaone and Michael

Fatialofa, who were coming

through the Blues system at the

time. He is now an assistant

coach with the premier side.

“I love the community

engagement. I love there’s no

pressure on these young guys,

it’s just a safe place for them to

come and learn their trade,” he

said.

Outside of his work and

coaching commitments, Senio

enjoys time with his wife

Anna, a former Silver Ferns

squad member, and their four

daughters aged between five and

16.

How to have a punt on the football and win

League or Super Rugby, it’s not

just injuries and form which

affect the odds.

We’re talking about a level

of sport where a wedding or a

player’s 21st birthday on a Friday

night can have a massive impact

on a team’s performance on

Saturday. I also doubt whether

the news of a reserve team’s

injury crisis will travel as far as

the UK bookies.

From what I understand those

in the know have been making

the most of these uneducated

odds – even to the point of

parents creating accounts for

their 16 and 17-year-old sons

who are young experts on the

local scene.

If you had a Bet365 account at

the start of the football season,

kudos to you. If you don’t, sign

up – there’s never been a better

time to be a local football nut.

• By Gordon Findlater

NEW BRIGHTON have

turned around their rough

start to the season by

claiming the DCL shield

and now throwing their

hat in the ring for a late top

six push.

On Saturday, New

Brighton defeated Marist

Albion 24-17 to win the

DCL

Shield,

which is

played

for in a

challenge

format

during

each round

of the

premier

metro competition.

The win moved New

Brighton to just one point

outside the top six, two

weeks after they found

themselves nine points

behind the sixth-placed

team.

“An attitude change had

to happen . . . they’ve really

started to hit their straps

and the effort has really

lifted,” said New Brighton

coach Scott Pawson.

New Brighton are on 23

points in eighth position.

However, with Shirley (26),

their first defence against

Dunedin’s John McGlashan

College – losing 26-27.

The unsuccessful defence

brought an end to one of

the shortest periods of time

any school has held the cup.

Following their win

on Saturday, St Andrew’s

travelled to Dunedin by bus

on Sunday. Still recovering

from a bruising encounter

with St Thomas’, they were

pipped by John McGlashan,

which scored a try with

5min remaining to secure

Linwood (24), Sydenham

(24) and Burnside (22) all

within striking distance,

each team almost has their

top six hopes in their own

hands with just two rounds

left in the first phase of the

competition.

Following the first phase,

the 12 teams will be split

into a bottom and top six.

On Saturday, New

Brighton will travel to

Sumner for the battle of

the beaches.

Sumner are lingering in

10th spot. However, they

have won three of their last

four games and Pawson is

the cup. The Trust Bank

Cup started the season

at Christchurch Boys’

High School before being

claimed by St Thomas’ for

the first time a week prior

to their loss to St Andrew’s.

Last week The Star

reported St Thomas’ win

over CBHS was their first

in history. However, a

number of old boys have

pointed out they were part

of the first St Thomas’ team

to defeat the CBHS first XV

16-13 in 1986.

turn their season around

GRUDGE MATCH: The DCL Shield will be on the

line when New Brighton meet Sumner in the

battle of the beaches at St Leonards Park on

Saturday.

expecting a difficult match

at St Leonards Square in

front of a strong Sumner

crowd, which he describes

as being “worth an extra 10

points.”

Meanwhile, the battle

for the first phase Hawkins

Cup is even more equally

poised with Christchurch

and defending champions

Lincoln University locked

on 33 points.

With both sides knowing

a slip up could put them

out of the cup race, bonus

points or even points

differential could be the

decider.

Hornets trying to rebuild after hefty loss

• By Gordon Findlater

THE HALSWELL Hornets have

been a proud rugby league club

since gaining premier status

in 1979 and going onto win 10

Canterbury Rugby League titles.

However, the club hit a new

low at the weekend when they

were defeated 0-86 by rivals the

Hornby Panthers.

The Hornets won their last Pat

Smith Trophy in 2014 when they

defeated the Celebration Lions

28-24. However, since then they

have made the top-four just

once and finished bottom of the

ladder on two occasions.

Following the

2014 title winning

campaign former

coach Darrell Coad

and team manager

Craig Sullivan

resigned from their

roles with the club.

The Hornets were then

faced with about 20

players seeking exodus

from the club.

“We’ve been

rebuilding since then and have

never really recovered,” said

Hornets president Ross Paniora.

Canterbury Rugby League has

a player transfer

rule, which allows

each club to have a

maximum of three

players transfer

away and three

players transfer into

another Canterbury

club each year.

However, it’s

understood the

Hornets allowed

about 20 players to

transfer away from the club due

to the concern they would leave

not allowed to transfer to other

has been more heavily policed

by Canterbury Rugby League

since 2015.

After seven rounds of

this year’s competition the

Hornets are yet to win a game

and have a plus minus of -192

points.

While Mr Paniora says the

club is not where it wants to be,

he is confident the club can once

again be a force to be reckoned

with in the future.

“Although we’re struggling at

• By Gordon Findlater

SHUN MIYAKE could be

representing Japan at under-20

level this year. Instead he has

turned his attention to his final

year in the Christ’s College

first XV.

Earlier in the year Miyake

attended a Japan under-20 camp.

From that he was asked to play in

the Japan under-20 side and also

the Japan A team. However, he

turned down the opportunity to

concentrate on his final year of

rugby at Christ’s.

“I’m still only 17, so I have a few

more years of being able to play

under-20s . . . I talked to coaches

and some people said you should

go, but most people said it’s a bit

risky, and I don’t want to get an

injury,” said Miyake.

The under-20 programme

would have seen Miyake represent

Japan at the Oceania rugby

under-20 championship in Australia

last month and then at the

World Rugby Under-20 Trophy

in Brazil in July.

The decision to not play a game

for the Japan A team was made

due to it having an eligibility

effect on his dream to one day

who are all working

extremely hard to make this

club the best it can be,” Mr

Paniora said.

Saturday’s loss to the

Panthers came on the Hornets’

club day. Both clubs dominated

the competition through the

middle of the 1980s, meeting in

four grand-finals during that

period.

The clubs met in another four

grand-finals during the 1990s.

The sides last met in two backto-back

grand-finals in 2012 and

2013, which were both won in

extra-time by the Panthers.

playing for the All Blacks.

Today the 17-year-old first-five

will enter his third straight college

match against Christchurch

Boys’ High School as his side look

to avenge a loss to their rivals in

last year’s grudge match and a

draw in the UC Championship

final which saw CBHS crowned

champions due to scoring more

tries in the match. Both Christ’s

and CBHS have experienced

mixed form coming into today’s

match. After a bright start to the

year, Christ’s were held to a 22-22

draw with Lincoln Combined,

while CBHS were upset 12-40 by

St Thomas’ earlier this month.

“We were a bit upset and frustrated,

but we had training on

Monday and the boys were fizzing

for this week’s game. We just

want to move on,” said Miyake.

This year’s college match will

have extra meaning for Miyake –

both of his parents have travelled

from Japan to watch the game.

The first college match was

played in 1892, when Christ’s

won 34-0.

Since then CBHS have won 91

times compared to Christ’s 44,

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

to be a cut above the rest in an

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

Cave Rock

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

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

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

Mr Garth, who has b en a

“Doing a l thi stuff and

Mr Garth hopes to own a

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

Pupils learn about role of war horses

Mark A pleton and member

their horses Tommy and Kruze

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

Children were shown the type
