IT’S A dirty job, but someone

has to do it.

That is Hornby’s Trevor

and Alison Murray’s reason

behind why they will pick up

any litter, broken glass and

dog faeces they see while

walking throughout the suburb.

“Somebody has got to do it,”

Mrs Murray said.

Every day while walking

their two dogs Abby and

Macey, the couple will clean up

the suburb’s parks and streets,

along with reporting anything

on city council property needing

repairs.

They will now be presented

with a Keep Christchurch

Beautiful Award in recognition

of their hard work at the

Tūranga Library tonight.

Mrs Murray, who is also a

member of the Greater Hornby

Residents’ Association, said

she was “thrilled” to have been

acknowledged.

The couple will often walk to

areas including Oakhampton

Reserve, Trevor Reserve and

the old Branston Intermediate

School site.

Burglaries

spark

safety

meeting

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A SPIKE in burglaries in the

greater Halswell area has prompted

a community safety meeting to

gauge the extent of the problem.

City councillor Anne Galloway

and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board candidate

Narrinder Singh

Warraich have

organised the

meeting, which will

be held on Saturday

from 10.30-11.30am

at the Harvard

Lounge.

In June, five

homes in Bibiana

Anne

Galloway

St, Felicitas Grove and Eaglesome

Ave were targeted in a series of

burglaries.

CCTV footage from nearby

properties filmed a tall, European

man wearing a hoodie and a black

mask, roaming the streets during

all five burglaries.

The meeting will be attended by

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Minister Megan Woods,

Community Constable Li’Ying

Cai and representatives from

Potential quarry noise to be discussed

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Jolene Eagar

NOISE ISSUES raised from

Fulton Hogan’s controversial

application to open a quarry in

Templeton will be discussed by

experts ahead of the upcoming

hearing in November.

Fulton Hogan, Selwyn District

Council and Canterbury District

Health Board noise experts have

initiated a meeting on noise

effect matters relating to the application.

It is a

result of the

hearings

panel commissioners

requesting

all expert

witnesses liaise

amongst

themselves

to on matters relevant to their

specific areas of expertise.

The aim of the meeting is

to clarify outstanding matters

relating to noise effects.

An ECan spokesman said

experts for any parties including

for submitters are able to attend.

The meeting is expected to be

held early or the middle of the

month.

Templeton Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar said

Meet Ruth

at the Te Hapua ¯ Halswell Centre Café

2-3pm Friday 9 August

Second Friday of each month

EXTENDED: Fulton Hogan will have extra time to prepare for

the upcoming hearings over its proposed Roydon Quarry.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

it feels as if ECan and the district

council is using the Resource

Management Act 1991 to justify

giving Fulton Hogan “every

possible advantage” to mitigate

issues in their application before

the hearing.

She questioned why everyone

was being encouraged by the

councils to share all their information

before the hearing.

“What is the purpose of the

hearing if they try and work

through all the issues up-front?

tree trouble?

call us 384 9630

www.fourseasonstreecare.co.nz

“For me, these things are actually

supposed to come out in the

hearing,” Mrs Eagar said.

Last month the TRA raised

concerns over ECan and the

district council granting Fulton

Hogan’s request to extend the

deadline for the hearing process.

The hearing does not have to

be completed until January 23.

Meanwhile, ECan and the

district council have asked for

further information from Fulton

Hogan on its quarry application

to respond to information raised

by submitters.

These are for Fulton Hogan to:

•Confirm the volume of

groundwater which will be extracted

annually and clarify how

it will be managed.

•Provide an assessment

and to clarify if there are any

measures to reduce the risk

of bird strike, particularly in

relation to the management of

ponds at the quarry. This is due

to the quarry’s close proximity

to Christchurch International

Airport.

•Provide an updated set of

draft conditions for all resource

conditions sought to reflect

mitigation measures provided in

the application.

•To provide more detail on

how Fulton Hogan’s proposed

mobile processing plant will be

used and if mobile crushers will

be used on the site and where

they will be located.

The information is due back

on Friday.

Concerns for

children on

broken glass

•From page 1

“One day we came home with

three cartons of alcohol cans and

bottles left at the old school. It is

things like that, that really disgusts

me,” Mrs Murray said.

Her message to other residents

is to “clean up after yourself.”

“I am not saying I am perfect,

because I am not, but it never

hurts people to pick up rubbish,”

Mrs Murray said.

Her message also goes to dog

owners not picking up their dog’s

faeces in public spaces.

“You are not allowed to leave

it on the ground but some dog

owners don’t care . . . it is a legal

requirement but it is also a moral

obligation,” Mrs Murray said.

She said she gets annoyed with

takeaway restaurants due to the

amount of rubbish she finds.

Her other concerns are children

injuring themselves as a result of

broken glass left on the streets.

“The city council can’t afford

to have the parks cleaned up . . .

it comes back to us unless they

want to put up their rates.”

Last year the association

obtained a litter picker, gloves and

bags from the Keep Christchurch

Beautiful organisation to allow

Mr and Mrs Murray to continue

their efforts.

Call for boarding house changes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PUSH to change the city’s

District Plan is being urged to

stop boarding houses

appearing unexpectedly

in residential streets.

The Ilam and Upper

Riccarton Residents’

Association wants the

city council to notify the

public when a resource

consent for a boarding

house is lodged.

It is after the city

council approved a

six-bedroom dwelling

on Lynfield Ave to be converted

into a nine-bedroom boarding

house recently.

It primarily involved the

Cr Galloway said the concerns

he said.

Mr Singh Warraich said the

Said Cr Galloway: “I think

the reason why we are hoping to

get a response from the multicultural

community is that they

Mr Reddiford said key issues

are car parking on the street and

the high number of people going

into the boarding house.

He said he went for a drive

around Lynfield Ave on Tuesday

morning and described some of

the student houses as looking

“seedy.”

“I was going ugh this is meant

to be a nice area, some of these

houses are pretty grotty,” Mr

Reddiford said.

City council’s head of resource

consents John Higgins said the

issue of public notification is

relatively new so the need to

change the District Plan has not

been evaluated yet.

“The issue has however been

recently sent through to the

District Plan team for consideration.”

In 2016, the city council

changed the rules so that a

resource consent had to be

required if a house exceeding six

bedrooms was established.

It was after the IURRA successfully

lobbied for the city

council replacement District

a boarding house is, to stop loose

“rent a room” arrangements.

The new definition also

meant the city council would

investigate the living conditions

of a house if a complaint is

received.

Library building’s future unclear

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE FUTURE of the Hornby

Library building is uncertain

after the new mega-facility is

built on Kyle Park.

The city council is planning

to move the library into the new

Hornby Library, Service Centre

and South West Pool once it

is built, meaning the library

building on Goulding Ave may

be re-purposed, demolished or

sold.

City council head of

recreation, sports and events

Nigel Cox said it currently

intends to dispose

of the superseded

facility, but how

this will be done

is still to be

determined.

The Greater

Hornby

Marc Duff

Residents’

Association

discussed the 40-year-old library

building’s future at its annual

meeting.

Suggestions have been made

for the library building to be

converted into meeting rooms or

a multi-purpose space.

The Hornby Community Care

Centre, which owns half of the

building, is also interested in

UNCERTAIN: The city council is looking at options for the

future us of the Hornby Library building on Goulding Ave.

taking full ownership.

Centre trust chairman Bob

Shearing said in due course it

wants to talk to the city council

about the future use of the

library building.

“We are probably keen to have

some role in managing it. That

said, no formal discussions have

been held as yet,” he said.

Residents’ association

chairman Marc Duff said people

see it as a useful building, which

could be done up and made into

a community facility.

Association member Mark

Peters said it would be a “shame”

to lose the library building as it

is in a central location.

“It would be good to see it used

as a meeting space or something

of that nature to free up some

extra space in the new facility,”

he said.

Mr Peters said there needs to

be some serious conversations

with the centre over whether

it would like to take over the

library building.

The library building’s

future was raised after the city

council released a survey on the

design of the long-awaited megafacility.

It sought the community’s

views on what they would like to

see in the $35.7 million facility

and asked residents to select

their top four options.

Mr Peters told Western News

last week the community would

expect a lot of the options

brought up for the new facility to

be included in it.

Mr Duff said a topic raised

by a lot of residents at the

association’s

meeting was

whether the

planned meeting

room options for

the mega-facility

could be put into

the Goulding Ave

library building. Mark Peters

The other issue

raised was whether

there is a need to put a gym

in the facility when there are

already several gyms in Hornby.

As of last week, the survey had

received about 120 responses.

Consultation on what people

want to see in the mega-facility

closes on Monday.

Upgraded

centre

reopens

THE FENDALTON Library

and Service Centre has

reopened following a five-month

closure for refurbishment and

repairs.

Library users can now

enjoy the upgraded heating

and ventilation

systems.

City council

head of libraries

and information

Carolyn

Robertson said

the library now

has improved

spaces.

Carolyn

Robertson

“The enhanced space better

meets community needs,

providing plenty of room for

social interaction and a wealth

of knowledge and entertainment

resources,” she said. “The library

is a key component of the local

social infrastructure – a true

centre of the neighbourhood.

I know that the library and

service centre’s services and

accessibility are particularly

valued by members of the older

and younger communities.”

All of the usual services

are available at the library,

including postal services.

Student Army

gets back

to work

CANTERBURY University’s

Student Volunteer Army have

been pitching in across the city.

About 100 students and 20

community members worked on

more than 10 projects including

maintenance work at schools and

kindergartens in St Albans.

The volunteering effort was part

of the SVA’s ‘connect the community

project’, which has been

going since 2013.

Said SVA president Sati

Ravichandiren: “This event,

historically has taken place a lot

in the eastern side of town, so this

year in New Brighton, last year in

Linwood, previously we’ve been to

Burwood as well.

“The SVA as a movement just

has a huge legacy there because

of the quakes . . . it’s just about

maintaining that connection and

continuing to connect there, give

back.”

Mr Ravichandiren said students

and community members

benefited from the volunteering

work.

“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.”

New classrooms for schools

CFFD has had an active

presence in Christchurch

since 1981, with attendances

between 70 to 80 in earlier

Regular meetings, annual

An annual grant from

covers the cost of total

It is when members wish

Taka-Ardouin said she was

Readers respond to the

article about delays to the

Riccarton Rd upgrade

Carolyn Ark – I was very

disappointed to read that the

upgrade to Riccarton Rd had

been delayed. On January 1, my

husband and I took the plunge

and went from a two-car family

to one car, and purchased an

electric vehicle. By making this

change we knew we would be

relying quite heavily on public

transport to get round. Not a

problem I thought . . . until I

discovered Riccarton Rd bus

lounges are closed for many

weeks . . . not a problem in

summer, but waiting in midst of

winter outside is not pleasant.

Situations like this will not

encourage more people to use

public transport in this day

and age of lessening our carbon

footprint.

Wayne Allen – Good. No

need to change anything as

it’s working okay in its present

state. We don’t need anymore

road or street changes. A waste

of money.

Liz Richardson – Poor

retail is feeling it.

Carol Geddes – I feel so

sorry for the business people.

They never stop mucking

around with Riccarton Rd. No

wonder our rates keep going up.

Claire Coxon: You have

already inconvenienced the

people and the businesses so get

on with it and finish the job.

Leonie Rich – Already

chaos, I only go from Deans Ave

to the best side street to get off

Riccarton Rd. It’s a nightmare.

Also the poor shops along there.

Graeme Brown – City

planners always seem to fail on

an epic level in Christchurch.

Anthony Brooks

responds to the Western

News article on the

demolition of the old

Sockburn Service Centre

This time last year we were

told the service centre would

be demolished. I will believe

it when I see it. How much

has it cost ratepayers to fence

the building since the

earthquakes? Maybe the council

should build the new pool there

instead of Kyle Park and save

some money.

WHOLESOME: The Westpac Rescue Helicopter base was one

of the deserving recipients of baking from Villa Maria College

students. ​

Goodies for paramedics

VILLA MARIA College’s

students have been undertaking

acts of kindness in the

community, showing support

and giving thanks to a wide

range of deserving recipients.

One group of students chose

to visit the Westpac Rescue

Helicopter base to deliver homemade

baking for the team to

enjoy.

The students took a variety of

goodies to the base, and were in

turn treated to informative talks

from pilot Andy Shearer, and

intensive care paramedics Corey

Milnes and Shane Lynch.

“As a group, the girls decided

who they would like to show

kindness to, and after some discussion,

they collectively decided

to create a beautiful morning

tea for those who operate our region’s

rescue helicopter service,”

said the school’s head of faculty

for technology Prudence Reveley.

SCHOOLS

She said all the baking was

home-made by the students

and hoped it would provide

a well-deserved treat for the

hard-working men and women

at Canterbury West Coast Air

Rescue base.

Another group of students

delivered bags of goodies and

personal notes to the nurses on

the Neonatal Intensive Care

Unit at Christchurch Hospital

to thank the nurses for the work

they do.

Other examples of kindness in

the community have included a

food donation for the City Mission,

and beautiful handwritten

notes sharing positive messages

left on cars parked at the Bush

ADVERTORIAL

Our home, our village

For Tony and Irienne,

settling into Ryman

Healthcare’s Anthony Wilding

Retirement Village was an

easy decision.

“It made me happy, to

know that if anything were to

happen to one of us, the other

has a place where they are safe

and have social contact,” says

Tony, aged 74.

“I was conscious that we

were living on our own, and

it could be quite isolating,

while here if you take a walk it

takes you a lot longer than you

anticipated because there are

so many people to greet and

talk to,” adds Irienne, 72.

“It’s the peace of mind,

really. It’s having the stress

and worry of being responsible

for a house taken away.”

The couple moved into

their townhouse at the village

in 2015.

“We used to tell our friends

we’ve moved house,” says

Tony “but it just happens to be

in a retirement village!”

“It’s our home, as simple as

that,” says Irienne.

Tony, originally from

England, moved to New

Zealand with his family when

he was seven years old.

His family eventually settled

in Nelson where Irienne’s

family came from. They met

at a local dance when Tony

came home from Canterbury

University, where he studied

Physics and Maths.

“In our days you met at a

local dance,” says Irienne,

“while nowadays you meet on

the internet!”

Irienne, a trained nurse,

moved with Tony to Tokoroa

when he was offered a job.

“It was in the middle of

nowhere, and we used to travel

to Taupo, to go for a hot swim,”

says Irienne.

“We also travelled to

Tauranga because I was

homesick for the sea,”

she adds.

Tony and Irienne with sales advisor, Susie Alayne.

Eventually they moved to

Auckland where their oldest

daughter was born, then a

move down to Wellington,

where their second daughter

was born. Finally, after a

couple of years, they settled

back in Nelson with their

growing family.

“My parents and Irienne’s

family were there, so it made

sense,” says Tony.

They eventually bought a

lifestyle block, and Irienne

managed the farm.

“It was a real

Old MacDonald’s farm,”

laughs Tony.

After many years in

Nelson and retirement, the

couple decided to move to

Christchurch to be near their

daughter and grandchildren.

“Luckily we scraped through

with very little damage,”

adds Irienne.

After a few years, the couple

began looking at retirement

options “half-heartedly”.

“So, we got to the stage

where climbing ladders was

becoming a bit of a problem,”

says Tony.

“With me at the bottom

of the ladder!” adds a

laughing Irienne.

“We decided to downsize,

and really the choice was to

buy a smaller townhouse out

in the real world or go into a

retirement village,” says Tony.

“It’s in your mind a bit, I

guess. Then somebody told us

about Ryman,” says Irienne.

Tony and Irienne belonged

to a walking group and were

introduced to Anthony Wilding

when there was a morning tea

held in the village centre.

The location was perfect for

the couple, as their daughter’s

family is settled nearby.

“We couldn’t be bothered

moving again.”

Anthony Wilding village is

located in Aidaneld, Halswell,

and has fantastic views of the

Port Hills.

The village offers

independent townhouses,

assisted living in a serviced

apartment, resthome, hospital

and dementia care. The

village includes an all-weather

bowling green, indoor heated

swimming pool, spa, internal

atrium, library, gym, hair and

beauty salon, bar and shop.

Sales Advisor, Susie Alayne,

says the village has beautiful

gardens, a strong sense of

community and the setting

is unique.

“We have all the benets

of a big village but we’re

small enough that everyone

still knows everyone else,”

says Susie.

Susie says that the benet

of a townhouse is that it offers

complete independence but

with the bonus of having a

safety net for times when you

might need some help.

And that is what

really clinched it for Tony

and Irienne.

“The xed fees denitely,

and the peace of mind,”

says Irienne.

For now, the couple is still

enjoying being out and about.

“We’re still very active

outside of the village,”

Tony says.

They are part of a biking

group and like to go tramping

so the townhouse living is

perfect for them as they can

just shut the front door and

head out without worrying

about the house.

“We also love the friendships

we’ve made here, the Happy

Hours, the staff, it’s such a

friendly village,” says Irienne.

“It’s got everything we like.

It’s the people in the village

who make this home.”

And the best part of living at

Anthony Wilding?

“Not having to clean our own

windows,” laughs Irienne.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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
