Now the St Albans designer is

a finalist for the third time. And

this year, she is upping the ante

with three different pieces.

They follow the theme of

mythology and Mrs Hutchison-

Thomas said the designs are

based on shape and colour, but

she could not reveal more than

that before WoW takes place

from September 26 to October

13 in Wellington.

At the age of 18, after studying

fashion at Christchurch

Polytechnic, she began a job as

a wardrobe mistress with the

Southern Ballet.

“I was 18, and while thrown

in the deep end, I knew this was

what I wanted to do,” she said.

Revised

plan not

enough

to reduce

traffic in

St Albans

• By Claire Booker

RESIDENTS ARE unhappy with

the city council’s revised plan to

reduce traffic in St Albans once

the Northern Arterial Motorway

is built.

St Albans Residents Association

chairwoman Emma Twaddell

said the updated plan does not

do enough to reduce congestion

and carbon emissions. She says

the city council is not showing

leadership after it declared a

climate emergency.

The controversial Downstream

Effects Management Plan was

revised after the city council

opted not to endorse it. The

original plan did not address

traffic volumes on Cranford St

which are expected to more than

double from an existing 21,000

vehicles a day to 48,000 vehicles a

day within five years.

However, some of the revised

plan’s major objectives to reduce

traffic, such as public transport

and high occupancy vehicle

lanes, have been described as a

project for the future in the plan’s

consultation document.

Students help bring down old campus

• By Claire Booker

THE HISTORIC buildings

in Papanui which were home

to students from Te Ora Hou

Otautahi have been demolished

in preparation for a new-look

campus.

And it was the students from

the alternative learning programme,

te kaupapa whakaora,

who started the demolition

process with crowbars, hammers

and a bit of hard work.

The Windermere Rd site was

originally a farmhouse, but became

Loreto Convent and later

Loreto College.

The buildings were built in the

early 1950s and are no longer

adequate for the alternative

education programme.

Te Ora Hou Otautahi general

manager Jono Campbell, 47, has

been involved with the education

organisation for 30 years

and says the buildings were rugged

and rundown.

“It was leaking, cold and

drafty,” he said.

Mr Campbell said having the

students involved in the demolition

was part of the organisations

key values of supporting

the transition of students from

children to adults.

“One thing we like to do in

this process is to acknowledge

the significant milestones in a

young person’s life . . . so it was

just a chance to engage our guys

with actually being a part of the

process,” he said.

Te Ora Hou Otautahi has

been operating since 1983,

and its alternative education

programme was started in 1995.

The programme enrols about

35 students a year, ranging

from year 9-11, and its mission

is to make learning fun and

engaging.

The new buildings are due to

arrive on site today and were

previously used at Canterbury

University.

Mr Campbell said it is hoped

the installation of the buildings,

deck and gardens is finished by

Christmas.

The $2.4 million rebuild has

been funded through support

from the Rata Foundation, the

city council and fundraising.

Mr Campbell is looking

forward to the site being

completed, saying it will be a

space not only for students, but

for the youth of Papanui and

their whanau. “It means we

can support our students to be

healthy, and just be in a much

nicer environment. A place

that they can be proud of, take

ownership in, and actually enjoy

coming to every day,” he said.

In Brief

QE II DRIVE NIGHT WORK

Night work will start on the QE

II Drive bridge from tomorrow

night until August 16. Wall

panels will be removed for the

bridge abutments so further

piling work can happen. This is

because the ground is softer than

first thought, so re-piling work is

necessary to ensure longevity. The

work will take place between 8pm

and 6am.

FACILITY UPDATE

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board has short-listed four

building companies for the

rebuild of the community centre

in St Albans. Tender offers close

today, and the lead contractor

is expected to be announced in

September.

FUNDS APPROVED

It’s good news for 15 young

people in the Nor’West News

area, $2500 has been funded in

the last week from the Papanui-

Innes and Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood community boards’

Students from Villa Maria

awarded funds towards their

St Albans costume designer

looks to sew up award

•From page 1

•From page 1

Since the start of her career,

she has worked in many film,

TV, opera and musical theatre

costume departments throughout

New Zealand and abroad.

“A couple of years ago I finally

got to work my dream job –

costume designer on a period

feature film,” she said.

Mrs Hutchison-Thomas once

doubted whether she was artistic

enough to enter WoW but this

is now her third year in the

competition, and her third time

being a finalist.

“I wasn’t sure if I would

enter again, after winning the

NZ Design Award last year, I

felt I had met my goal. But the

competition is so addictive, and

such a wonderful experience, I

couldn’t pass it up,” she said.

This year WoW has two big

awards which could see the

winners head overseas. The

Cirque du Soleil Invited Artisan

Award will give someone

the chance to visit Montreal,

Canada, and the new Residency

Experience Award, which will

give the winner an opportunity

to showcase up to five pieces

in Los Angeles. Her husband

Tim and her three children Lily,

winning design from last year, called Eye

13, Harry, 12, and Maddie, 9,

understand that sometimes when

she has a big job they won’t see

her much, but she said they know

there’s always an

end.

Mrs Hutchison-

Thomas said she

has managed to get

all the work done

with some very long

hours, late nights

and support from

her parents and

husband. This year’s

design process has

been complex due to

the different shapes

in her pieces, and she

has had the added

hurdle of working in

her garage, because

the family recently

moved into a

townhouse, so most

of her studio is in

storage.

After the

competition is over,

Mrs Hutchison-

Thomas will

continue her studies,

and prepare for her

first exhibition in Mt

Pleasant later this

year.

Concerns remain over plan

to manage traffic from

Northern Arterial Motorway

Residents are frustrated

because under the plan the lanes

won’t be completed by the time

the motorway extension opens

late next year.

Said Ms Twaddell: “Have they

forgotten they declared a climate

change emergency a

month ago? Where is

the courage to make a

change that is urgently

required to reduce

carbon emissions now?”

Said city council

transport planning

and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis: “These

projects are not part of

the initial package of

works we’re proposing in the St

Albans, Edgeware and Mairehau

areas, but they are part of the

big-picture approach. We have

also designed the initial package

of work to allow for bus or carpooling

lanes to be added in

when this work is complete.”

However, Ms Twaddell said the

city council needs to move faster.

“We can’t lower our emissions

without better transport options

which allow this. But once

again, the city council is focused

on using our rate money to

accommodate single-occupant

Mike

Davidson

NOR’WEST NEWS

commuter traffic and at the

detriment to many of their

residents,” she said.

City councillor Mike

Davidson said the revised plan is

not perfect.

“The proposal that’s gone out

was never going to be perfect

because when you throw

a motorway into a suburb,

it’s always going to create

bad outcomes. But what

we’re trying to achieve is

something good out of it.”

The city council is

working with the New

Zealand Transport Agency,

Waimakariri District

Council and Environment

Canterbury on a number of

projects to reduce traffic in the St

Albans area, including the high

occupancy vehicle and public

transport lanes.

Ms Twaddell says the

organisation will also continue

to work with the city council to

get a project on the table which

focuses on reducing traffic before

the motorway extension opens.

Community group head stands down

• By Claire Booker

ALAN AND Dilys Hardy had

the choice to retire in Spain or

Florida, but 13 years ago they

decided on Christchurch.

Mr Hardy became involved in

the Belfast Community Network

but has decided to step down

from his role as chairman.

The couple have been married

for 53 years, and have travelled

to many places together.

Mr Hardy, 74, said there are a

few key factors associated with a

long and happy marriage.

“Perseverance, a sense of

humour and I suppose a lot of

good luck,” he said.

South-West Nigeria, United

Arab Emirates, Chile, Northeast

Nigeria and Egypt are

among the places the couple

have been in their lives.

Mr Hardy had a busy work life

before he retired. He began his

career as a marine engineer and

had various other roles in between

his next stint with a major

international cement company

where he travelled around the

United Kingdom, Middle East,

Africa and South America.

After 18 years abroad, with no

real sense of home, Mr and Mrs

Hardy decided it was time to

settle in one place and retire, New

Zealand seemed like a good fit.

TRAVELLERS: Alan Hardy and his wife Dilys retired to New

Zealand 17 years ago, after a life of travelling they chose

Christchurch to settle ahead of Spain and Florida.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

The couple were in Christchurch

for the earthquakes, but Mr

Hardy said although they were

unpleasant, after five years of

working in Chile with regular

tremors and erupting volcanoes,

earthquakes were nothing

unusual.

They first settled in

Northwood but then moved to

Belfast, where Mr Hardy became

involved with the network.

Mr Hardy was on the

board for four years and has

been the chairman for the last

two years, but he has decided

to step back from this role to

focus on his health and enjoy his

retirement.

In his time with the network,

Mr Hardy said one of the things

he was most proud of was getting

a living wage for the staff,

and helping to progress the

many groups the network run,

including the Belfast Active

Senior Support group.

“Recently, through the

support of donators, including

the rugby club, we now do a

holiday programme where we

will take them (BASS group

members) out on trips once a

week somewhere – even just to

the beach so they can put their

feet in the water.”

Mr Hardy says he will miss

being the chairman at BCN

and working with the people

involved with the network.

“I will miss working with the

dedicated board members and

hardworking BCN staff and

seeing growth in their skills and

abilities as they successfully take

on new tasks,” he said.

Students find space mission a real

• By Claire Booker

FUTURE ASTRONAUTS from

St Margaret’s College, Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School and Christchurch

Girls High School have come

back from the NASA space camp

feeling over the moon.

The programme was at the

NASA Johnson Space Centre in

Houston, Texas, over the July

school holidays, with students

from New Zealand, Australia and

Taiwan attending.

The camp was an immersive

programme that supported individual

leadership, project management

and communication skills,

with a focus on STEAM subjects –

science, technology, engineering,

art, and mathematics, or applied

mathematics.

During the camp, the girls met

NASA astronauts, explored all the

different NASA facilities, and visit

areas that are usually closed to the

public.

The students also visited interactive

museums and displays which

enabled them to get a real appreciation

of the science that supports

space exploration.

The students were in Huntsville

in the lead up to celebrate the 50th

anniversary of the lunar landing.

They watched the launch of

5000 rockets at the exact time that

Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong

left earth on July 16, 1969, which

was also part of the Guinness Book

of Records attempt.

At space camp in the US Space

and Rocket Centre, the students

were involved in activities such as

spinning around in the multi-axis

trainer and got to experience a

minimal gravity simulation.

The students spent their days

doing different space-related

challenges and competitions,

from building and coding robots

to constructing and launching

rockets as well as completing the

simulated Mars mission.

In the Mars mission, each student

had a particular role either in

mission control, on the space shuttle

or on the International Space

Station.

The girls got to launch the rocket

with the shuttle, dock the shuttle

with the ISS, conduct experiments

and activities dressed in space suits

and then swap over astronauts to

return them back to earth.

Linda Chong, head of the centre

of innovation at St Margaret’s College

accompanied the students and

said the girls coped well throughout

the action-packed trip.”I hope

that their interest in STEAM has

been fuelled. Anything is possible

and this experience has inspired

them to greatness,” Ms Chong

said.

This culminated in us

Spuds fund Helen’s scooter

• By Matt Slaughter

STUDENT Volunteer Army

volunteers got to work in and

around St Albans and East

Christchurch last Saturday.

About 100 students and 20

community members worked

on more than 10 projects

including maintenance work at

Montessori BestStart pres-chool

and Rawhiti Domain in New

Brighton.

The volunteering effort was

part of the SVA’s connect the

community project, which has

been part of its calendar since

2013 and become its secondlargest

event of the year.

Said SVA president Sati

Ravichandiren: “This event

[is] about maintaining that

connection and continuing to

connect.”

Mr Ravichandiren said students

and community members

benefited from the volunteering

work.

“They’re really appreciative

of getting those student hands

helping out and providing that

labour. But, more than that as

well, when you meet with the

families who came along and

talking to people who joined

us in the hub afterwards, it’s

great for the students to feel that

appreciation.”

FOR 15 YEARS Helen Ratapu

has struggled with back pain and

arthritis, which has stopped her

from taking her grandchildren

swimming and to the park.

But now the 65-year-old of

Redwood can do all she ever

wanted to, thanks to potatoes.

Mrs Ratapu has been trying to

get funding for a mobility scooter

for the last eight months, and

help finally came from the Belfast

Kaiapoi Rotary Club.

The club holds an annual

fundraiser in which it grows and

sells new potatoes over Christmas.

Some of the money raised was

used to purchase Mrs Ratapu’s

mobility scooter for $3200.

“This will change my life,” she

said.

The potato fundraiser has been

running for about eight years

and has previously paid for items

including Chromebooks for

Northcote School pupils, before

school breakfast programmes, and

transport to mid-week school sports.

Mrs Ratapu’s husband has

been taking their grandchildren

swimming and to the Margaret

Mahy Playground on their bikes.

Now Mrs Ratapu is able to do

things like that with her new

mobility scooter, if it will go that

far. She couldn’t decide what she

is most looking forward to, but

being out with her grandchildren

over the summer is an exciting

prospect.

“There’s nothing in particular I

want to do – just lots of things in

general,” she said.

Mr and Mrs Ratapu have

been the caregivers for their

granddaughters, Jodi, 9, and Zoe,

11, for the last five years. Mrs

Ratapu is pleased she will be

able to spend more time with them.

A combination of osteoporosis

and degenerative arthritis have

led to multiple bone fractures for

Mrs Ratapu and make moving

around painful and dangerous.

Since she received the scooter,

Mrs Ratapu has enjoyed getting

out with her granddaughters, and

is looking forward to the warmer

weather and all the different

activities they will get up to.

She is grateful to the Rotary club,

which has also donated a shed to

store the scooter in.

Said Belfast Kaiapoi Rotary Club

president Peter Prattley: “Our club

is committed to helping those who

need a bit of a hand up.”

“All those who helped grow,

harvest and sell the potatoes,

along with our valued customers

who regularly buy them, can be

pleased to see the funds making a

real difference to someone’s life,”

he said.

Save money by trading baby clothes

• By Laura Hitchon

A NEW venture to help parents

of newborn babies save money

has opened in Christchurch.

The Canterbury Baby Clothing

Library in Spreydon operates

a clothing exchange system

where members can trade good

quality second-hand baby clothing

for other good quality second-hand

baby clothing items of

a similar nature. Library owner

Jacky Bakker said the library

system loosely worked on a likefor-like

exchange.

Ms Bakker said she came up

with the idea for the business after

buying some expensive baby

clothing for her grandson on an

overseas website and discovered

it was too small, but was unable

to exchange it.

“Babies are constantly growing,

so rather than people

throwing out their old baby

clothes and sending them to

landfill, why not exchange

them,” she said.

In addition to reducing

landfill, Ms Bakker hoped to

make shopping for baby clothes

more enjoyable, affordable and

less time-consuming for new

parents.

Customer and grandmotherto-be

Janice Belgrave said it

was easy to spend $35 on a new

outfit that only ended up being

worn once or twice. “It’s great if

parents are able to recycle and

reuse where possible,” she said.

Christchurch Parents Centre

president Yvette Cundy said a

lot of parents were surprised at

how quickly they went through

clothing and that selling them

online was a time-consuming

process. “The process of putting

items up on Trade Me, listing

everything and waiting for people

to collect the items, it’s just

too hard,” she said.

Ms Bakker said having a baby

was meant to be an enjoyable experience,

but people got caught

up with the image and expense

of it instead of savouring it.

“I get to make contact with

people at the happiest time of

their lives, which is just lovely,”

she said.

Rather than spending a heap

of money on baby clothing, Ms

Bakker believed people should

spend it on what matters, like

car seats, mattresses or good

shoes.

“You can still achieve a cool

look by shopping sensibly,” she

said. Ms Bakker said label clothing

and generic clothing were

treated exactly the same and

what mattered was the quality of

the garment.

“Clothing to be traded must

be free of holes and discolouration

and must have fully functioning

zips, domes and buttons.

“Hats, socks, singlets and

most knitwear are not accepted

but can be donated by members

for other people to use.

“Premature and special occasion

clothing are also available

on request,” she said.

Ms Belgrave said she was

gifting a full membership to her

children and hoped it would

make things a little easier for

them.

“A membership to the baby

library would make an ideal

gift for a baby shower too,”

she said. Casual and full

memberships are available

and visits to the library are by

appointment only. Once the

clothing is exchanged, it’s the

customers to keep.”

BAKE SALE: Papanui High

School students Alisha

Hitchens, Kisania Shingleton

and Bidhya Chhetri looked

after the sweet treats.

Cakes earn $328

for Starship

LAST WEEK, Papanui High

School participated in the

inaugural bake it better for

Starship, a campaign to raise

funds for Starship Hospital.

And they raised $328 for the

cause.

The campaign encouraged

workplaces, schools and communities

to hold bake sales with all

funds raised going directly to buy

new equipment and training for

the National Children’s Hospital.

Students from the Papanui

High School service council and

student council volunteered their

time – with help from their parents

– to bake treats that were sold

to students and staff.

Assistant principal Rachel

McConnell was pleased with the

outcome.

“The baking is always excellent

and the high level of goods had

staff lining up early,” she said.

NOR’WEST NEWS

To have your say on an issue in the city’s

nor’west, email claire.booker@starmedia.kiwi

Readers respond to the

article in Nor’West News

about the low turnout at

the draft Integrated Water

Strategy drop-in meeting

sessions

Jayvine Morgan – Deciding

to have meetings in the middle

of winter, it is no wonder there

was a low turnout. It’s freezing

and we had a particularly

horrible event only four months

ago that shocked our town and

country. This type of incident

can affect people for a long time.

There are already countries

suffering from lack of water.

We have such an amazing asset

here in New Zealand, which

we are almost giving away at

the moment. I hope we become

aware of just how important

water is for the future and our

country has a lot of it. It could

become an important part of our

contribution to other countries.

Marney Ainsworth – The

Bryndwr Community Group

is listed in CINCH, which is

the database maintained by the

Christchurch City Libraries.

We heard nothing about this

consultation. It seems the city

council isn’t even using its own

information to communicate and

connect.

Michael J. Brathwaite – I

don’t think there is too much

consultation. In fact, I don’t think

FUTURE OF WATER: Up to $10 billion has been budgeted for water management in the city

council’s Long Term Plan, yet there was a near-zero turnout at the drop-in information sessions

held recently.

we have any real consultation.

If people are not attending

meetings, it is probably because

by now most residents are aware

of what a sham the consultation

process is. When the council

make a plan, it includes a few

ridiculous things that it intends

all along to remove, then claim

it’s done so in response to the

submissions. Regarding the

water. For me, the main issue is

the Government’s plan to give

health boards the right to force

councils to fluoridate their water

supplies, and when that becomes

law there will be no consultation

because the council and

ratepayers will have no say in

the matter.

Linda Hodgen – I feel the

reason you don’t get residents

turning up to meetings is because

they don’t feel their views will

be listened to. There was a big

turnout rally against the selling

of water rights for plastic bottles

and selling overseas. Nothing

happened and more water is

being bottled. We accepted that

there was a need for chlorine,

which was meant to be

finished in May but there

is still some chlorine. Water

is a valuable resource and we

are giving it away. We are

having to go to deeper aquifers to

get clean water but how big is the

aquifer? I understand it is only

now starting to be measured.

We don’t want sea water

contamination. There have been

two overseas research studies

pointing to a link between high

nitrate levels and bowel cancer.

I understand Christchurch has

a high level of bowel disease

but before anything is done to

control nitrate levels you want to

do another study and so

delay any improvement. Then

you ask why we haven’t turned

up.

Readers respond to an

article about community

boards having more

decision-making powers

Anthony Brooks – The

reason why we don’t want to give

more power to the community

boards is clearly shown by the

example you gave – changing the

name of the cemetery. The main

council says no, the board says

yes, the tail wagging the dog.

With less and less people

making the decisions it becomes

spending money for the sake of

spending and we already have

enough of that.

From Boys’ High to Belgium

for talented young rider

• By Jacob Page

WINNER: Bailey O’Donnell crosses the line after beating a field

of 89 to take a 100km race in Deinze, Belgium.

FORMER Christchurch Boys’

High School cyclist Bailey

O’Donnell’s gamble on himself

appears to be paying off as he

won his first road race in Europe.

The 18-year-old is in the midst

of a two-month stint racing on

the roads of Belgium, an opportunity

organised by former

New Zealand cyclist Hayden

Roulston.

O’Donnell said he would use

the opportunity to try to make

the most of his talent while he

could, but he has also been doing

some part-time building work

back in Christchurch.

O’Donnell won a 100km race,

often referred to as a kermesse,

in Deinze, west of Flanders.

He is racing for a small

under-23 Belgium team and is

loving the experience.

“Belgium is pretty much the

home of road cycling in the

world, I think it’s the biggest

sport here after soccer.

“They have many different

kinds of races on every day of the

week in different areas, people

come from all over the world to

race here.

“They close the whole town

down for the race and every one

from that town comes out to

watch and also there is always a

carnival on at the same time.”

O’Donnell said he saw an opportunity

to take control of the

race and took it.

“I decided to race a lot more

aggressive than I have been and

put myself in to the red a lot

more than usual,” he said.

“It came down to a bunch

sprint and I didn’t know if I had

the legs but I saw a gap open on

the inside with about 300m to go

and I hit it and managed to get

past everyone and hold on for

the win by a few bike lengths.”

O’Donnell said he still has

a month to go in Belgium and

hopes he can catch the eye of

team scouts and hopefully get

the chance to come back.

THE MIDDLETON Grange

basketball team has been playing

with “a chip on their shoulder

all season” and now it’s helped

them claim the Dowson Cup.

They produced a stirring

comeback to win 102-90 and end

Cashmere High School’s twoyear

reign over Canterbury high

school basketball’s equivalent of

the Ranfurly Shield.

They will defend it against St

Andrew’s College next Tuesday.

Co-coach Jack Williamson

said the team have “trained

the house down after being

ranked the fifth best school in

Canterbury in the preseason

rankings.

Cup last

week.

Middleton Grange ballers

come back to win Dowson Cup

season.”

Cashmere held the cup since

May 30, 2017, when they beat

Burnside High School.

Williamson said he believed

his team could win at the start

of the game, especially with

Cashmere’s imposing Tom

Webley out injured.

“Being down 19 points in the

third quarter, I guess you could

say at that point, I didn’t think

we could come back but the guys

showed plenty to storm back

into it.

“I said to the guys that it was

important to stay grounded after

the win. It’s important not to

get too over-confident after one

result. We don’t necessarily have

the size or the strength of some

teams but we go out there with

a good basketball IQ and a love

of the game and that counts for

a lot.”

In your

neighbourhood

A safe, gentle way to improve

fitness and health

For all those wanting to improve their strength,

fitness and overall health in a relaxed, friendly

environment, Charisma Health & Leisure in

Avonhead provides the ideal opportunity.

Not a gym, Charisma Health & Leisure is equipped

with six Shapemaster Powertone electronic beds,

each one designed to target specific muscle groups.

Owner Katrina Barron explains: “With the

Powertone system, the beds are all pre-set to operate

for five minutes, and clients move from one to the

next for the different sets of movements, with their

session lasting just over 30 minutes.

“The speed and resistance of each bed can be

varied according to individual needs, and they are

very safe – people of any age and any level of fitness

can use them and gain the benefits.”

These benefits include improving core strength,

gaining longer, leaner muscles, improving circulation

and increasing energy, as well as helping those with

conditions such as osteoarthritis and multiple sclerosis.

People also find the system useful for regaining

strength and normal movement after surgery such

as hip replacement, Katrina says, and for anyone

with an injury such as a broken ankle or damaged

shoulder, who want to maintain their fitness while

recovering, the injured area can be isolated while

they use the system.

The Shapemaster system was developed in the UK

in the late 1980s, and is now widely used around the

world as a gentle, safe form of exercise. Charisma

Health & Leisure in Avonhead is one of only two

places in New Zealand that offers it.

“Our other advantage is there is no pressure on

people to sign contracts – we don’t have contracts,

we offer flexible packages for our clients,” Katrina

says.

“You can come for a free trial, where we take you

through the system, explain how it works and the

health benefits it provides.

“If you like it you can then take a month’s

membership during which you can come once a

day for as many days as you wish. After that you can

choose from one of our flexible packages.”

Charisma Health & Leisure is located at 45

Merrin Street, just along from the Avonhead Mall.

Phone 358 3834. Open Monday to Friday 7.30am-

5.30pm and Saturday 8am-12.30pm.

The Powertone electronic beds each

provide different sets of movements

for the body’s muscle groups.

Educating locally for lifelong connection

Do you remember the days of knowing your

neighbours? In this digital age, building

local connections creates lifelong anchors

for our children. Whether it’s bringing the

community into the classroom, or making

classroom learning relevant for the real

world, Shirley Intermediate has - since

1934 - been a core part of the wider Shirley,

Richmond and Dallington communities.

With a major building programme

coming, and the move (to next door) of

Banks Avenue School , the local educational

pathways are increasingly compelling.

Know local, go local - Put a stake in

the ground and put your hand up for the

wellbeing and connectedness of your

children within your community. • Social

cohesion and individual growth • Learning

through inquiry and direct teaching

• Learning in the classroom and in the

community • Academia and creativity

that cultural diversity is not limited to just

A world-class education and

supportive learning environment

Every parent wants to ensure their child

is receiving the best foundation for their

academic future. Selwyn House School

offers this through small class sizes, deep

core learning, talented teaching staff all set

within a nurturing environment and an

extensive range of opportunities.

Selwyn House offers the International

Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years

Programme (PYP) and is proud to be a

leading STEAM focused school. We not only

encourage our girls to work in advanced

STEAM fields, we want our girls to lead

them. Our STEAM Hub provides every

student from Year 1 to 8 access to stateof-the-art

equipment. In Mechatronics,

girls learn the foundations of mechanical

and electrical knowledge. Robotics is

introduced as an interdisciplinary, inquiry

based learning programme drawing mostly

on mathematics, science and technology.

Learning is also enhanced by additional

opportunities including Future Problem

Solving and the 2020 Space Camp trip

where 24 girls will travel to the United States

to attend a week long Space Camp.

A supportive all-girl learning environment

encourages girls to take risks without fear

of failure. As the girls progress they are

confident in their abilities, understanding

that perseverance helps them grow. A

school-wide buddy programme provides

each girl with support and mentoring.

Learning is personalised

and each teacher has the

time to foster authentic and

meaningful relationships.

Strong relationships

between the class teacher

and family ensure each girl’s

learning journey is nurtured

by a partnership of support.

Teachers construct learning

activities to help each girl

identify their personal

strengths.

Selwyn House believes

these strengths can be

applied to academic tasks

and become more powerful

with the acquisition of skills

and knowledge, aiding

intellectual development

and academic achievement.

For this reason core

learning in reading, writing

and mathematics is a

priority. Specialist teachers

in Spanish, Mechatronics,

Art, Science, Physical

Education, Swimming, Performing Arts and

Music work with classroom teachers to help

identify the strengths of every girl.

The environment at Selwyn House

empowers each girl to embrace their future

and develop a love of learning. A Selwyn

House girl will learn to define herself,

accept responsibility, form opinions,

and have compassion for the world.

This combination of achievement,

confidence, and character makes

a Selwyn House education a powerful

and transformative experience.

House or to schedule a personal tour

Tasty Bites

Moreish treats using oats and rice flour

Chock full of fruits, seeds,

and oats, this muesli bar

recipe by Joan Bishop is

a healthy treat. The fat

content and added sugar

is low and the tastes and

textures of the fruits and

spices blend with and

enhance the slightly

nutty flavour of wholegrain

oats. Then top it off with

a decadent yet delicate

black rice steam cake

Pineapple muesli slice

Makes 40-44 slices

Ingredients

50g butter, chopped

3 Tbsp honey

425g can crushed pineapple in

juice, well drained

3 Tbsp lime juice

140g crystallised ginger, chopped

120g dried apricots, chopped

120g dried pineapple pieces,

chopped

1 large egg, size 7, lightly beaten

100g pumpkin seeds

100g sunflower seeds

100g desiccated coconut

140g whole grain oats

100g standard flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground nutmeg

Directions

SENIOR LIVING

Place the butter, honey,

crushed pineapple and lime juice

in a large saucepan over low heat

and stir until melted and mixed.

Add the ginger, apricots and

dried pineapple. Slowly bring to

the boil.

Cover with lid and very gently

simmer for 5min. Remove from

the heat and cool well before

stirring in the beaten egg.

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C

on bake. Line a slice tin (about

20cm x 33cm) with non-stick

baking paper.

Combine the pumpkin seeds,

sunflower seeds, coconut,

wholegrain oats, flour, cinnamon

and nutmeg in a medium-sized

bowl and mix well.

Tip the dry ingredients into

the saucepan containing the

fruits and stir to mix. This is

quite a stiff mixture. Tip into the

lined slice tin. Spread out evenly

over base of the tin with the back

of a spoon or wet hands (mixture

does not stick to wet hands). It is

important the mixture is pressed

down firmly into the tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for

30-35min until set and lightly

golden. Do not overcook.

Remove from the oven and

allow to cool completely in

the tin. Leave overnight before

slicing, if time permits.

Using the baking paper edges,

lift the slice from the tin and

place on a chopping board.

Cut into squares or oblongs as

desired.

Black rice steam cake

Serves 8

Ingredients

200g butter

250g black glutinous rice flour

6 large eggs

250g (generous cup) caster sugar

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

2 Tbsp sweetened condensed

milk

½ tsp vanilla extract

Directions

You’ll need a cake tin and a

steaming pan or basket large

enough to hold it. Melt the butter

and use a little to grease the

inside of the cake tin well. Dust

with just a little black flour to

help stop the cake sticking. Start

the water boiling underneath

the steamer so it is ready for the

cake.

In a large bowl, whisk together

the eggs, sugar and salt to get a

frothy mixture with the sugar

dissolved. Stir in the black

glutinous rice flour and baking

powder.

Stirring as you go, gradually

add the condensed milk, the

vanilla extract and finally the

melted butter. Keep stirring

until the mixture is smooth and

velvety.

Pour into the cake tin and sit

in the steaming basket.

Wrap the lid with a clean

tea towel – this will stop water

dripping on to the cake and

create a tight seal.

Steam over a medium-low

heat (making sure there is always

water in the pan). How long it

takes depends on the size and

shape of your pan – between

25-40min.

Check every 5min or so

towards the end of the cooking

time. The top should be gently

springy with not too much

wobble below; then poke in a

skewer to check the middle has

a delicate crumb rather than raw

batter.

Remove from the steamer and

leave to cool for 10min in the tin

before turning out on to a rack to

cool. Serve with strawberries.

SENIOR LIVING

Kidney, bladder and

urinary support

A healthy urinary system is needed to

filter and remove waste and excess fluid

from the body. Each part of the urinary

system (kidneys, bladder, ureters and

urethra) works in harmony to drain urine

from the kidneys and escort it out of the

body. If the kidneys’ ability to filter the

blood is seriously damaged by disease,

wastes and excess fluid may build up in the

body. The critical regulation of the body’s

sodium, potassium and acid content is

performed by the kidneys. The kidneys

also produce hormones that affect the

function of other organs. For example,

a hormone produced by the kidneys

stimulates red blood cell production.

Other hormones produced by the kidneys

help regulate blood pressure and control

calcium metabolism. Urinary tract

infections occur when germs enter the

urinary tract and cause symptoms such

as pain and/or burning during urination

and more frequent need to urinate. These

infections most often affect the bladder,

but they sometimes spread to the kidneys,

and they may cause fever and pain in your

back. Not all kidney disease produces

symptoms although some signs there may

be a kidney problem are: puffiness around

eyes, swelling of hands and feet, more

frequent urination - particularly at night,

difficult or painful urination, high blood

pressure and blood in the urine.

Nature’s Sunshine JP-X is a powerful

all natural herbal formula that has been

formulated to support the bladder, kidneys

and provide relief from urinary infections.

The herbs naturally support: improved

digestion, liver function, increase

circulation to promote healing, stimulate

urine flow to flush out toxins, shrink

swollen tissues and reduce inflammation,

neutralise acidity, relieve pain and support

sexual function. JP-X is recommended to

help arthritis, cystitis, diabetes, diarrhea,

dyspepsia, dysuria, edema, gallstones,

gastritis, gout, incontinence, kidney

infection/inflammation, kidney stones,

liver problems, nephritis, prostatitis,

rheumatism, urinary dysfunction, and

urinary tract infection/inflammation and

high blood pressure.

Collagen

the body’s youth protein

Collagen is the primary protein in the

body. It is a major component of skin,

hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments,

joint cartilage, bones, gums, teeth, eyes,

and blood vessels.

In fact collagen is the primary

structural component for all tissue

in the body, providing the strength

and resilience associated with youth,

beauty and wellness. The body’s natural

collagen production decreases with

age resulting in many signs of aging,

such as flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament

and tendon injuries and aching joints.

Collagen supplementation is one of

the most fundamental things a person

can do to prevent premature aging and

promote youthful vitality.

NEOCELL are the industry leaders

in research on collagen supplementation.

Through advanced research they have

perfected a way to hydrolyse collagen and

effectively reduce its molecular weight this

improving the absorption of collagen into

the blood stream by over 90%.

A clinical study on NEOCELL

COLLAGEN has shown skin hydration to

increase an average of 21% and up to 50%,

with 92% of test subjects experiencing

firmer, softer skin. Most people taking

NEOCELL COLLAGEN reported seeing

visible improvements within two weeks.

Collagen supplementation provides

the nutrients necessary to support the

body’s collagen supply. It can help reduce

fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin

elasticity, support building of strong bones

and teeth, strengthen the nails and hair,

and is vital for muscle growth, It also

assists weight loss by helping burn fat

for energy, promotes wound healing by

supporting the regeneration of healthy

tissue as well as help support overall

health.

NEOCELL COLLAGEN and further

information is available from the

Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Are you struggling with the heat of

Summer or wanting to get organised for

Winter? With the ever changing weather

patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility

of being able to heat and cool which is an

advantage no other appliance can offer. This

represents great value for your investment

as you can use it all year round. The team

at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you

cool this Summer either at home or work.

Enviro Master supplies, installs and services

all the leading brands including Panasonic,

Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means

our team can show you which system and

brand will best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the 1st of

July deadline. Inadequate heating and

ventilation can lead to mould growth and

dampness in your property, leading to

costlier maintenance and an unhealthy

living environment. Providing a fixed

heater with a higher heat output and lower

running costs, like a heat pump, will enable

your tenants to heat the area effectively.

It will also discourage them from using

unflued gas heaters which can make a

house damp and mouldy.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for

any repair or damage caused to the system

due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s

five-star installation guarantee ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration

so customers have an understanding on

how it will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,

Waltham, Christchurch.

The importance

of air quality

The quality of the air we breathe affects our

health and ability to perform. We breathe

in and out approximately 20,000 litres of

air every day. It is therefore very important

to ensure good air quality indoors through

adequate ventilation. Ventilation is the

process of air exchange to provide the

necessary air quality that meets the needs

of the occupants for clean, fresh air. Low

oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like

a high content of dust and tobacco smoke

are harmful and can cause various diseases.

Even bad smells can cause discomfort or

irritate the nervous system. In summer, it’s

easy to open windows for cross ventilation,

however as winter approaches, we start to

shut up out houses to trap in the heat and

as a result, air quality can decline.

Ventilation includes both the exchange

of air to the outside as well as circulation

of air within the building. It is one of the

most important factors for maintaining

acceptable indoor air quality in buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In

case of poor or insufficient air intake from

outside, the oxygen content decreases,

humidity and dustiness levels increase. If

exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is

not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity

and harmful substances are not removed.

To ensure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can

calculate the required air exchange for your

building requirement. Smooth-Air offers

a wide range of ventilation equipment,

from air vents to ducting for fans, for both

the commercial and domestic markets.

They have an extensive range of fans and

ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions

tailored to differing requirements.
