PARIS Halliday “epitomises

a true volunteering spirit.”

The 15-year-old Hornby

High student leads a busy

life helping various groups,

including The Chris Ruth

Centre, where she cares for

her older brother Cody who

has epilepsy.

Last week she was

recognised for her volunteer

work with a youth service

award from the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board.

She was nominated by the

Greater Hornby Residents’

Association and teacher

Katie Tozer, who described

her as a wonderfully

generous person who leads

by example.

Paris was one of nine to be

recognised.

She is a leader in Hornby

High’s junior student

council, and regularly helps

to run meetings, gather

students together and

organise events.

Parking

permit

trial to

start near

university

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PERMIT allowing residents

to bypass two-hour time limit

restrictions will be trialled on

two streets near Canterbury

University.

But if residents living on Athol

Tce and Rutherglen Ave want to

avoid being ticketed for parking

on the streets in front of their

homes – they will likely have to

pay $54 annually.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board approved a

Residents’ Parking Exemption

scheme trial for the two streets at

its board meeting last week.

The cost of the permit has been

set at $54 a year but is subject to

change due to permits needing to

be renewed annually.

The trial aims to allow residents

to be exempt from complying to

the P120 restrictions.

But the idea hasn’t been

popular with everyone.

Rutherglen Ave resident Stella

Stretton said she would support a

residents’ parking permit but $54

is too “excessive.”

Bid to extend Templeton pool hours

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

COMMUNITY GROUPS are

being sought to manage the

Templeton Swimming Pool in a

bid to increase its opening hours

in the summer.

The Templeton Residents’

Association was approached

recently to ask whether it would

be interested in running the

summer pool.

It is after the city council

received feedback from the community

last season calling for

the pool to be open earlier in the

morning and

the season to

run for longer.

The pool

which is open

over the summer,

has hours

Jolene Eagar

of 11.30am-

7pm, December

1-January

27 and in the weekends from

11.30am-7pm from January

28-February 24.

City council’s head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel

Cox confirmed it will continue

to operate the pool but the opportunity

to increase access in

the mornings/evenings and the

pool season was there for the

community.

It is proposed the pool would

RECREATION: The city council has asked the Templeton

Residents’ Association to consider managing the Templeton

Swimming Pool to increase its opening hours in the summer.

be operated similarly to the

Governors Bay community pool

– which is run by a community

committee.

Residents’ association treasurer

Jolene Eagar said nothing is

set in stone and the city council

has not put on any pressure for it

to take over the management.

“The TRA has expressed its

concerns and we are not that

keen to take it over right at the

moment. We said we will work

with the council to find a solution,”

she said.

Mrs Eagar said there

have been some comments

people would like to access

the pool earlier and later in

the day, but it needs to be discussed

further with the

community.

“I think the most important

thing is it is in the early stages

and the council is willing to

work with us and we are willing

to work with them to get the

best solution.”

Mr Cox said it was “likely” the

operational costs and revenue

for the pool will remain with the

city council.

It costs about $36,000 to run

annually.

Western News reported

earlier this month the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board approved putting $50,000

towards a trial to extend the

pool hours at the Te Hapua:

Halswell Summer Pool.

But Mr Cox said low participation

and revenue makes the

extra cost of lifeguards to run

the Templeton Pool for longer

“prohibitive.”

There are between 4000-7000

people who swim at the pool.

In comparison between 35,000-

42,000 people use the Halswell

pool.

Templeton School was approached

about two years ago to

take over running the pool.

Its PTA chairman Paul Austin

said it was decided it was better

the city council ran the pool and

had not discussed the proposal

since.

But he said as a resident he

would like to see the pool operating

for longer as his children

go to the pool often.

“WE EITHER say now yes let’s

go ahead and finally get this

Hornby facility up and running

the Hornby

Library,

and South

The

the final approval

for the

reclassification and changes to

the Kyle Park Management Plan

1993 last night.

It was after a hearings panel

led by Papanui-Innes Community

Board deputy chairwoman

Emma Norrish made a recommendation

for the changes to

go ahead after considering 181

submissions.

Concerns had been raised in

the past due to Kyle Park being

a former landfill which closed in

1981.

At the meeting, Ms Buck argued

a geotechnical and ground

assessment report by Tonkin +

Taylor on Kyle Park outweighed

elected members, given ground

security and land stability is

what they do every day.

The report confirmed Kyle

Park could be safely and successfully

built on.

“When we started this six

years ago, Linwood Pool was

behind Hornby. Linwood is

now designed and ready to start

building and those kids are going

to get a pool.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

through without meeting opposition

from some, with Ross

McFarlane and Debbie Mora

voting against the changes.

Ms Mora said she is passionate

about getting a pool in the

south-west and she would have

no qualms if the facility was not

being built on a landfill.

Last night she read out a

statement made by a former

project manager for the

Hornby facility at a city

council meeting on the facility

in August 2017.

At the time he said: “No matter

how much site investigation

we completed we’d never know

all the risks, that’s the reality

. . . we do see people building on

landfill, it’s definitely possible

but it definitely offers a high-risk

proposition to the council.”

Ms Mora said she was also

concerned the Tonkin + Taylor

report did not cover the effects of

landfill leachate.

She said she has since had

her concerns “reasonably

satisfied” following a seminar

with city council staff after the

meeting, but could not comment

further due to it being publiclyexcluded.

Mr McFarlane also voted

against the changes.

“No other sites we have built

something on is on 11 metres of

rubbish, that is the risk we take,”

he said.

Board member Catherine Chu

said the decision on using Kyle

Park for the facility had already

been made and the issue at hand

was the reclassification.

“Let’s just focus on getting the

facility to the people of Hornby

because they have been waiting a

long, long time.”

In the coming weeks, the

city council will be asking the

community to share their ideas

on the planned facility.

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the families in your community warm,

happy, healthy and connected.

You can be proud of the fact that you have allowed your

neighbours to stay warm, cook dinner and even charge

their mobile phones. You may not have realised that what

you’ve done has had much impact, but from all of us here

at Orion, we just want to say thank you.

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

Parking permit could cost $54

•From page 1

“Why should I have to pay to

park outside my house?

A city council report said the

two streets, which are largely occupied

by Canterbury University

students, were chosen due to the

streets being “largely occupied”

on weekdays.

But Miss

Stretton disagreed

and said

it is not like she

parking time limit zone . . . no

cars ever park here and it is just

a waste of everyone’s time,” she

said.

Athol Tce resident Connor

McEwan McDowall said it would

be ideal to not have to pay, but

it is better than having to worry

about being ticketed.

But he said his flat is unlikely to

be affected because all three cars

can fit on the property.

“Once we don’t have enough

room that is when we would do

something like this.”

City councillor Vicki Buck said

it is difficult to know how popular

the scheme is because they are

not common in the city.

“But $54 to park your car for

a year is not that expensive. It is

just the administrative cost – we

are not making any money out of

it,” she said.

At the board meeting, city

councillor Anne Galloway questioned

how it could sell the idea

of the permits to residents when

the cost could be a barrier.

But chairman Mike Mora

responded: “The answer to the

question is it is P120 at present

so if you park there more than

two hours you get a ticket,” he

said.

Rutherglen Ave resident Katie

Potts said she hadn’t heard about

the trial but probably wouldn’t

buy a permit because she won’t

renew her flat lease next year.

“We have got five parks here so

we can car shuffle,” she said.

The city council was unable to

respond in time on how long the

trial would last for.

Award for apprentice

AVONHEAD MAN Toby

Marsh “couldn’t be happier”

to be named the New Zealand

Sign & Display Association

Apprentice of the Year.

The 23-year-old signmaking

apprentice based at Signbiz

Riccarton recently received the

industry recognition during

the association’s annual awards

evening in Tauranga.

“Signage has offered me the

opportunity to mix my creative

side and my passion for cars on

a daily basis, amongst producing

and installing signage at some

of the biggest companies in New

Zealand,” said Mr Marsh.

“This has involved working

alongside Greg Murphy on the

graphics for the cars he has

recently campaigned, through to

helping many of my mates stand

out on the track or in a forest in

their race cars.”

While cars are a big part of

his life, the young apprentice is

quick to add that people who

work in the signmaking industry

are often known as the “Jack

(or Jill) of all trades.”

“One minute we could be fabricating

a sign frame to install

signage on a building, then we

could be doing some kind of

engineering like welding, or

Association apprentice of the year. ​

electrical work like using LED

lights to illuminate a sign. There

are a lot of skills involved in

signmaking that people outside

the industry often don’t think

of,” Mr Marsh said.

He joined Signbiz in 2015 and

started his four-year apprenticeship

in 2016.

Mr Marsh enjoyed graphic design

at school but knew he didn’t

want to be “stuck in an office

in front of a computer screen

all day,” preferring to find a job

with a good balance of creativity

and hands-on production.

Competenz training adviser

Steven Jack said he is pleased to

see Mr Marsh receive recognition,

and was impressed with

his talent and passion for his

apprenticeship from day one.

“Toby has consistently

produced a high standard of

work and you can tell how much

he loves it. It’s great to see his

work recognised formally by the

signmaking industry.”

MORE NAMES are beginning

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board member

Debbie Mora is considering putting

her name forward to contest

against Catherine Chu and Peter

“That fact Vicki Buck has

stood down has opened up that

opportunity in Riccarton but I

am also weighing up Halswell,”

she said.

Ms Mora is planning to make

a decision over the next coming

weeks.

Her reason for considering the

city council was because she did

not feel she could make a huge

difference on the community

board.

“You want to be making decisions

for the whole of the city,”

Ms Mora said.

If she runs for the city council,

her goal will be to not only cap

rates but lower them by “nipping

in the bud” excess expenditure.

“We want to repair our city but

not at the cost of it being goldplated.”

responds to the Western

News article on thieves

fitting their vehicles with

stolen number plates to

steal petrol

UNFORTUNATELY I had my

number plate stolen

for the second time

a few weeks back.

I was parked at the

pool complex car

park in Papanui

(Graham Condon

Recreation and

Sport Centre) and

came out after about

90min to find them

gone. I rang the new

police call centre number *105

to report it but after more than

45min could not hold any longer.

The following day after another

lengthy two hours of waiting

for the call to be answered and

then 50min of going through the

incident report with the person

taking the call, I received a

police report number via email. I

can see why so many people don’t

bother reporting it as the time it

takes is very frustrating and then

you know there is nothing that

will be done.

I reported it, however, because

I am very aware that plates are

being stolen for both petrol

drive-offs and other thefts. It

makes you wonder if we still

had two separate

entities in the police

and the Ministry of

Transport traffic

officers like the

old days, = things

like this that seem

unimportant might

actually get some

action. It is extremely

inconvenient, timeconsuming

and every time plates

are replaced, it costs. I also had

the anti-theft screws on my plates

and they still managed to get

them off.

Seems there is a tool online that

does the job at very little cost and

even videos on YouTube about

how to get the screws off. So the

expensive screws I was talked

into buying are no more secure

than normal screws.

Meeting over Deans Ave boy racers

Board deputy

Helen

writes about an upcoming

meeting between Deans

Ave residents and police

AN IMPORTANT meeting for

Deans Ave residents will be held

on July 24 with senior police

over “boy racing” behaviour.

The meeting has been

organised by the Deans

Avenue Precinct Society, with

administrative support from the

community board.

This is a long-standing issue. I

became aware of how serious it is

at a residents barbeque in March.

I requested the board meet

with police, and door-knocked

Deans Ave residents on June

22/23. I was shocked at the level

of disruption.

The problem-behaviour occurs

every Friday and Saturday night

(occasionally Sunday) from

10pm to 2am.

There can be an earlier start of

9pm and later finish of 3am. The

vehicles congregate in the sales

yard area.

Residents’ sleep is disrupted

by the noise, loud music and boy

racers talking across cars.

One resident described it

as a bad orchestra – each car

having its own noise. The sound

penetrates double-glazing, and

residents face broken bottles and

general litter the following day.

As a result, one retired couple

in their 80s have to leave their

house every weekend, a young

couple with a baby have their

sleep disrupted, a group of

professionals who need to

perform well in their careers

have been affected, and a

90-year-old man in a side road

has been disturbed, saying this is

an imposition on residents.

Can legislation curb this

behaviour? It was what the

cruising and prohibited times on

roads bylaw 2014 intended to do.

The Land Transport Act

defines “cruising” as driving

repeatedly in the same direction

over the same section of road

in a manner that creates a

convoy or draws attention to the

power or sound of the engine or

impedes traffic flow.

A breach of the bylaw is an

offence with a spot fine of $150

or prosecution with a fine of up

to $1000. Other enforcement

options include listing part of

Deans Ave as a prohibited road

at night or reducing the speed

limit.

This is an important meeting

for residents to have their say.

your concerns. If you’re unable

CBHS come out on top

at South Island champs

SPORT

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

enjoyed a successful outing at

the South Island school cycling

championships, taking out the

Hayden Godfrey Challenge Cup

for the top performing school.

Although CBHS collected just

one individual title at the event

in Christchurch last week, with

Josh Rivett winning the under-20

individual time trial, the school

excelled in the team events.

They beat Timaru Boys’ High to

the under-20 title and Cobham

Intermediate to become under-14

champs. They also finished

second behind James Hargest

College from Invercargill in the

under-16 event.

In a show of dominance, six

of the top eight riders in the

under-20 individual time trial

were from CBHS. This level

of consistently proved vital in

CBHS’s bid to claim the overall

title.

More than 230 riders took part

in the road event, organised by

Cycling Canterbury Schools,

at Mike Pero Motorsport Park.

They competed in individual

time trials, team time trials and

road race events.

There were some outstanding

individual performances over

the weekend, which included

rides from Jenna Borthwick (St

Margaret’s College) and Amelia

Sykes (Avonside Girls’ High),

Olli Aitken, of Medbury

School, also took out both

individual under-13 titles.

TALENT: The CGHS year 10 netball team finished second at

the South Island junior championships last week, replicating

the efforts of their year 9 team.

Strong showing by CGHS

THE FUTURE of netball at

Christchurch Girls’ High School

looks bright after both their year

9 and 10 teams finished runnersup

at the South Island junior

championships at Hagley Park

last week.

The year 9 team went through

the entire tournament unbeaten

before coming up short against

Dunedin’s St Hilda’s Collegiate

45-21.

CGHS beat Christchurch’s

St Peter’s School, Dunedin’s

Columba College and Darfield

High School in pool play to top

their group.

They then beat Ashburton College

and Rangiora High School

in the top-16 stage.

They won a tense quarter-final

clash with Mt Aspiring College

24-21 and outlasted Nelson College

for Girls 29-25 to make the

final but they were no match for

a rampant St Hilda’s team.

The year 10 team had a similar

path to their final, going unbeaten

before losing to Taieri in

the final.

They beat Rangiora High

School, Roncalli College from

Timaru and Central Southland

in the round-robin section.

They then beat Wakatipu and

Marlborough Girls’ College in

the round of 16.

They then beat St Hilda’s in the

quarter-finals 37-30 and Nelson’s

Waimea College 42-27 in the

semi-finals.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Modern diet

leads to illness!

It’s not what you eat but what you absorb

More health

benefits with

Advanced

Omega-3-PC

Fish Oil

It is well known how important omega-3 fatty acids are to good

health. It is estimated most people don’t even get a third of the

recommended omega-3 fatty acids on a weekly basis. Countries with

a higher amounts of omega-3 in the diet are known to have lower

cardiovascular disease & in many cases better overall health. Recent

research has shown inflammation to be a big part of disease & the

ageing process. Fish oil can help reduce inflammation by providing

essential fatty acids required by the body to heal itself & maintain

good health. Fish oil supplements have become hugely popular for

this reason. Until now most fish oil only contained omega-3 fatty

acids in triglyceride form. Fish however naturally contain omega-3 in

triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid

form was lost due to the manufacturing process.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-3-PC sets new standards in fish oil as

it contains omega-3 attached to both triglycerides & phospholipids.

Studies have shown GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC to be far better

absorbed leading to increased levels of vital omega-3 fatty acids in the

organs thru giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-3-PC is produced from fresh wild

deep sea cold water fish using a new advanced & more natural

cold extraction process that better preserves the natural nutrient

profile found in fish. It is manufactured to high GMP standards &

is molecularly distilled to remove any containments, toxins & heavy

metals like mercury.

Further information on this revolutionary new fish oil & how

it may benefit you is available from the Natural Health Advisers,

at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, phone: 388-5757. We are always happy to help!

Two Australian

Naturopaths Stephen

and Shane noticed at

the end of the 20th

century more and

more of their patients

were experiencing

gut, bowel and

digestive issues that

were often leading to

more serious chronic

health conditions.

Being Naturopaths

they wanted to find

what was going

wrong and began

extensive research.

What they found was

although their clients

were generally eating good food they were not

obtaining all the nutrients required for good health

from this food. Further research showed one of the

main problems was the digestive system, “it’s not

what you eat but what you absorb.” Another wellknown

problem is the soils the crops are grown

in have been depleted of many trace elements and

other nutrients that are known to be essential for

good health and therefore the crops and food are

also depleted. If we do not obtain all the nutrients

we require the body will compensate to some

degree but a lack of too many nutrients will

eventually lead to health issues.

Based on this they developed

VITAL GREENS, now call VITAL

ALL-IN-ONE, a

nutrient dense

powdered

formula

that provides superior absorption as well as

comprehensive nutrition. They decided on a

powdered formula that could be made as a great

tasting drink because liquid nutrition is the easiest

way for the body to absorb nutrients especially if

digestive issues are present. The formula provides

78 vital ingredients that work together in synergy

optimising each other’s absorption and benefits.

Vital Greens contains a carefully balanced

blend of nutritionally rich greens, vegetables,

fruits, minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids,

plant and herbal extracts, superfoods, powerful

antioxidants, probiotics, essential amino acids,

digestive enzymes, fibre plus a uniquely alkalising

pea protein. It provides superior nutrition to a

multivitamin and just about anyone will benefit

from it. It is designed to provide all the nutrients

the body requires for good health. It is also ideal

for those in poor health, those recovering from

injury or sickness, children, athletes, poor eaters

and the elderly. It is also suitable for people with

dietary restrictions and is gluten, wheat and dairy

free. VITAL ALL-IN-ONE will help remove toxic

waste from the body while supporting all organs.

You’ll often notice more energy and endurance,

better sleep, a more positive mood, skin problems

improving, less sickness, improved eyesight and

overall better more optimum health.

Further information and how to obtain the

maximum benefits from VITAL ALL-IN-ONE

as well as tastings is available from the Natural

Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview

Road, New Brighton,

phone: 388-5757. We

are always happy

NOT all FISH OIl IS CreaTed eQUal!

ONLY GO OMEGA-PC retains the natural Phospholipids that have been shown to be so beneficial for Good

Health BUT are lost in other brands of fish oil due to the less natural manufacturing processes used!

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC SETS NEW STANDARDS IN FISH OIL!

Omega-3 fish oil normally contains the vital Omega-3 fatty acids in a triglyceride form. Fish however naturally

contain Omega-3 in a triglyceride & phospholipid form but until recently the phospholipid form was lost due to the

manufacturing process. GO OMEGA-PC is produced using a new more natural cold extraction process that better

preserves the natural nutrient profile found in fish. Studies show GO OMEGA-PC offers superior absorption with

increased omega-3 fatty acids in organs giving the potential for more health benefits.

GO-ADVANCED OMEGA-PC OFFERS:

• Superior absorption of vital Omega-3, as

shown in research

• Advanced new cold extraction better

preserves the natural nutrient profile

found in fish

• Naturally contains phospholipids to

support cellular health

• Contains vitamin D3 to support immune,

bone & cardiovascular health

• Supports cardiovascular health - Countries with

a higher Omega-3 intake have much lower rates

of heart disease

• Supports blood circulation, healthy cholesterol &

healthy blood pressure

• Supports joint health, joint mobility & repair

• Supports overall health & wellbeing

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness in

your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather

on its way, home owners are focusing on

ways to make their homes comfortable,

warm and healthy for their families

throughout winter. Rising damp is an issue

that affects many of our older properties

which suffer from poor, or no, insulation.

In Canterbury especially, post-quake, many

people have relocated to homes that suffer

from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests

have shown that up to 40 litres of water

can rise from the ground and enter a

house every day, leading to mildew, mould,

condensation and musty smells. Moulds

can produce various allergic reactions

and the frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The

team understands the problems caused

by rising damp and are there to help.

They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam

concrete under your timber floored home.

Specially adapted for our New Zealand

conditions and applications it provides a

layer of protection against rising moisture.

An unexpected benefit that the team at

Canterbury Foam Concrete have noticed

recently, is that many owners of properties

which had underfloor foam concrete

installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd now for your free, no obligation

quote and complimentary appraisal of

your underfloor ventilation needs. Phone

03 376 4608 or 0508FOAMCO for more

information.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,

not to skim the across the ceilings. All

components are good quality - designed to

operate for years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency

in your house, as you are using excess

heat. They have low power consumption

- only 80watts for the three room system.

Circulating air through the house also

reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as

any other ventilation requirements.

to avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of future overcrowding,

in Christchurch secondary schools the Burnside High School

Board of Trustees has adopted an amended enrolment scheme.

This has been approved by the Secretary and will be effective

from 1st January 2020.

Students will be enrolled at Burnside High School if they live

within the scheme which is also referred to as our ‘home zone’.

The new boundaries are approximately represented by part(s)

of, or in some cases the entire, street, road or geographic entity

described below. Properties on both sides of street or road

boundaries are included in our home zone.

main runway of Christchurch Airport (including addresses on

Aviation Drive), Harewood Road, Wairakei Road, Breens Road,

provisions of the Education Act 1989.
