Lodestar Ave left off speed limit review

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

MAJOR SPEED limit changes

are likely to be on the horizon for

Halswell and Hornby in a bid to

improve road safety.

But residents battling to make

Wigram’s Lodestar Ave safer have

been left feeling “forgotten” after

no changes were made to lower the

speed limit on the busy road.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board recommended

a raft of speed limit changes at its

meeting last week.

The board-approved plan would

decrease the limit to 50km/h along

Halswell Junction and Kennedys

Bush Rds, as well as parts of

Cashmere and Hendersons Rds.

John Paterson Drive and roads in

the new Cloverden subdivision off

Murphys Rd would go down to

40km/h.

A 60km/h speed limit would

be put on Marshs, Shands,

Springs, Hodgens, Fountains,

Whincops, Downies, Quaifes,

Sabys, Sutherlands and Hoon Hay

Valley Rds, as well as Cashmere Rd

(between Kennedys Bush Rd and

the existing 50km/h zone north of

Hoon Hay Valley Rd).

The changes will go to the city

council for final approval. But

residents also want to see the speed

limit on Lodestar Ave lowered

from 50km/h to 40km/h.

Bob Rush, who lives at Lady

Wigram Retirement Village on

Lodestar Ave, said lowering the

speed limit would help, but not

solve, the issues with the road.

Identifying barriers for women

HELPING HAND: Pari Hussaini will be working with women

feeling socially isolated in the south-west to help them

connect with their communities.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A CASE study has been

commissioned to help

identify barriers keeping

socially isolated women

from connecting with their

communities in the south-west.

Funding of $30,000 was

granted from the Government’s

Ethnic Communities Development

Fund to enable the Family

Help Trust to employ a connector

role to determine what is

isolating women.

The role, which will be taken

on by Wigram resident Pari

Hussaini over the next six

months, was prompted as a

result of the March 15 attacks.

She said it is mostly Muslim

women who have been left feeling

anxious since the attacks,

but her role is to help all women

who need help connecting with

their community.

“I am mostly going around

and talking with lots of communities,

schools, parents and

also with my own community,”

Mrs Hussaini said.

She will be focusing on

communities in the greater

Halswell, Hornby, Spreydon

and Addington area – including

speaking with schools and

parents.

City councillor Anne

Galloway, who is involved in the

trust, agreed the attacks have

created more anxiety in the

community, which is perhaps

keeping people house-bound.

“We are trying to identify

barriers . . . it might be language,

it could be they have got

no licence, it could be they are

anxious and worried and want

to stay close to home.”

But Cr Galloway said there is

also a sense there are socially

isolated people who have been

living in the south-west community

for a long time.

“We are just basically doing a

scope at the moment to see the

need,” she said.

Mrs Hussaini’s role will be

funded for the next six months.

Last month $30,000 of funding

was approved.

Cr Galloway said the

six months case study will

determine if there is a need in

the community for a full-time

connector role.

Mora puts

hand up

for CDHB

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A WELL-KNOWN community

board member has put her

name forward for a position on

the Canterbury District Health

Board.

Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton

Community

Board member

Debbie Mora will

contest a CDHB

seat and run

for the board in

October’s local

body elections.

Debbie

Mora

She said she was also toying

with the idea of running for the

city council in the Riccarton

Ward, but decided against it.

Ms Mora said her experience,

which includes chairing the community

board’s submission committee,

will help the CDHB.

Her priorities would be to

resolve the parking problem at

Christchurch Hospital, improve

the mental health system and

provide further counselling for

people who have been physically

and sexually abused.

“It would be good to be in a

position to make change,” she

said.

Community board gives speed limit plan green light

•From page 1

“The original problem is

basically the speed of vehicles

coming down here, plus the

trucks using the road as a bypass

– it was never designed to have

trucks down here,” he said.

Since 2017, Lodestar Ave and

Lady Wigram residents have

been pleading for restrictions to

be placed on heavy vehicles – but

trucks are still using the road.

City council transport

operations manager Steffan

Thomas said the speed limit

review focused mainly on

existing high risk 70km/h and

80km/h roads, which are rural

and semi-rural.

“There is currently no

information available on when

Lodestar Ave speed limits might

be reviewed,” he said.

Lodestar Ave homeowner

Wanda Waites said it would

be nice if the speed limit was

lowered, but heavy trucks need

to be banned for the problem to

be solved.

Board member Debbie Mora

said she was disappointed

Lodestar Ave was not included.

Following feedback the board

also decided to write to the New

Zealand Transport Agency

about lowering a section of

Halswell Rd from 80km/h to

60km/h.

Board chairman Mike Mora

said this change would make the

road more consistent.

The board will

ask NZTA about the

possibility of changing

the section of Halswell Rd

between Augustine Drive

to about 300m before

Dunbars Rd from 80km/h

to 60km/h.

Board member Ross

McFarlane said there are

several issues with the

right-hand turn from

Aidanfield Drive due to the

Ross

McFarlane

increasing traffic.

The latest traffic count showed

18,000 vehicles travel

on Halswell Rd daily.

Mr McFarlane said

there are also about

three businesses on the

east side of Halswell

Rd, which means more

vehicles are travelling

in and out of the

80km/h speed zone.

“A lot of vehicles don’t

accelerate to 80km/h because

they know they are only going to

have to slow down again and that

said.

NZTA senior traffic and

said developments in the area

mean it is an appropriate time to

review the speed limit.

Burglaries for drug money

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE INCREASE in opportunist

crime in Halswell and Wigram

is likely to be fuelled by drugs,

police say.

Superintendent Lane Todd

said police are finding the

majority of burglaries involve

young people trying to get

money to buy drugs.

He said while police have

noticed the spike in drug-driven

burglaries in Halswell and

Wigram, it is an issue across the

city.

Over the past six weeks, police

have been running an operation

to crack down on burglaries in

the areas.

“We have put additional staff

out there and we are arresting

people on a daily basis,”

Superintendent Todd said.

As a result, burglary stats in

the area are starting to drop, he

said.

“The

message we

are trying

to do is to

get people

to take more

care around

security.

Locking

Lane Todd

vehicles

and locking

sheds. A

lot of garden sheds have quite

a lot of property in them,”

Superintendant Todd said.

In June, five homes in

Bibiana 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.

Superintendant Todd said

police are finding a small group

of people will walk up and down

driveways looking for easy

targets.

“For those who take a bit

more extra security and

keep everything locked, they

generally aren’t targeted as much

CRIME PREVENTION: Police have told Halswell and Wigram residents to make sure their homes

are more secure to prevent opportunist burglaries.

because it is more time to break

into a property.”

A community safety meeting

to gauge the extent

of the problem was

held recently. The

meeting was organised

by city councillor

Anne Galloway and

Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board candidate

Narrinder Singh

Warraich.

Cr Galloway

previously told Western

News concerns over burglaries

have been predominantly

coming from multi-cultural

communities and people who

may not be aware of the support

networks available.

Anne Galloway

Superintendant Todd said

Community Constable Li’Ying

Cai, who was present at the

meeting, has been

working with the

Asian community,

in particular, to help

prevent burglaries.

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods and

representatives

from the Hornby

Community Patrol

and Neighbourhood

Support were also

present at the meeting. Mr

Singh Warraich said residents

shared burglary incidents in

their neighbourhood and police

conveyed key messages.

This included locking

unattended vehicles on roads,

parking in well-lit areas and

considering investing in an

alarm system or getting sensor

lights fitted. Cr Galloway said it

was “reassuring” to learn what

police are doing but the city does

unfortunately have a “big meth

problem” which drives a lot of

crime.

Hornby resident Mark Peters

said Aidanfield Christian School

was hit with burglaries over the

school holidays, with stationery

stolen from unsecure lockers in

an unlockable locker bay.

“My child had three pencil

cases stolen along with a

calculator . . . the more we can

do to help stomp out that sort

of negative behaviour in the

community the better,” he said.

Police take

action on

Deans Ave

boy racers

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

RESIDENTS CONCERNED by

boy racer activity on Deans Ave

have been reassured police are

working to minimise the problem.

Superintendent Lane Todd met

with a small group of 12 people,

including Deans Avenue Precinct

Society members, to discuss the

issue recently.

While the meeting was attended

by members of the society, it was

not attended by anyone directly

affected by the issue

or anyone living on

Deans Ave.

The meeting

was prompted by

Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community

Board deputy

chairwoman Helen

Broughton who has

been calling for a

Helen

Broughton

meeting with police since June.

Mrs Broughton told Western

News it was unclear if the low turn

out at the meeting was due to a

lack of concern or if it was because

publicity on the meeting was low

key.

She said she will look to arrange

another meeting with police following

the October local body

elections.

At the meeting Superintendent

Todd discussed four key

on-the-ground police initiatives

to prevent anti-social behaviour,

which were:

•Issuing tickets each weekend.

•Police proactively stopping

vehicles of concern to assess and

“pink-sticker” cars if they are

unsafe or need to repairs.

•Police using intelligence gathering

(social media) to find out

about planned events and increase

their presence in the area.

•Police actively avoiding chase

situations to risk placing innocent

lives at risk.

•Residents are advised if

they are concerned about boy

racer activity to phone *105.

Hornby High School community.

We are nearly there. We take possession of the last of our

new buildings on Friday September 13, although the official

blessing is a earlier on Tuesday August 27. I have been

constantly repeating my favourite Sir Winston Churchill

quote in this regard: “We shape our buildings, thereafter

they shape us”. We have been careful and thoughtful in our

building design, and now have schools visiting to look at

what we have done, and going away saying “we want that

design”.

Sitting alongside the building work is our journey to

transform the junior curriculum. We are edging ever

closer to next year’s shape in Years 7 to 10, with passions

and community impact projects used to cause learning in

authentic contexts.

Our work with the Manaiakalani pedagogy “Learn Create

Share” continues to have a truly transformational impact on

student learning.

Of huge importance in this regard is the work that has been

going on in the background to support this work, and the

purchase of Chromebooks by whānau. In 2017 we formed

Uru Mānuka Education Trust (UMET), a charitable trust. It is

chaired by Mr Garry Moore (former Mayor) and the trustees

are Mr Jason Marsden (Manager of “The Hub”), Mrs Janine

Morrell-Gunn (Whitebait Studios), Mrs Daisy Lavea-Timo

(slam poet extrordinaire), and Mrs Rose Crossland (Manager

and fundraiser). Gary Roberts (Hornby Primary School) and

I sit with the trust as Principal Advisors. The trust allows us

to fundraise to support our Education Programme Leader

(who works tirelessly to help teachers across the cluster

to grow the skills they need to work with our pedagogy in

a digital environment), and also to allow the purchase of

Chromebooks in a variety of ways, at affordable prices. It is

vital that our rangatahi have access to the digital technology.

This is a game changer in education, but as a kura we are not

able to provide devices for students. We are very grateful

to whānau who make this incredible investment in their

children’s education and their futures. Ka mau te wehi!!!

The UMET has just announced that the Wayne Francis

Charitable Trust has committed to providing $120,000 a

year over five years to support the UMET and the work that

we are doing across the cluster. This is an indicator of the

faith that they have in the impact of Chromebooks, and

the “Learn Create Share” pedagogy, to transform learning.

We are very grateful to our own trustees for their tireless

efforts on behalf of our tamariki, and to the Wayne Francis

Charitable Trust for their incredible investment in the

futures of our tamariki.

KiwiRail to clean up blaze debris

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

IT HAS been more than five

months since a fire raged

through 2km of State Highway 1

between Islington and Rolleston.

But an unsightly piece of land

at Templeton, damaged by the

blaze, will finally be cleaned up.

KiwiRail has confirmed it

will clean up the strip of plants

and shrubs located next to the

railway on Main South Rd, near

Cookie Time, in the next two

months.

The Templeton Residents’

Association has been battling for

the area, left charred by fire, to

be cleaned up for the last couple

of months.

In February, a passing train

was reported to have caused the

fire.

KiwiRail South Island general

operations manager Jeanine

Benson said the charred areas

will be cleared and it will

consider replanting if that is

what the community would like.

“It is not clear if all the land

affected is owned by KiwiRail.

However, we will work on the

whole affected area,” she said.

Association treasurer Jolene

Eagar said it was “great news”

the land would be cleaned up but

it was a long time for the land to

be left the way it is.

She said the association was

going “round in circles” trying

to determine if the city council,

New Zealand Transport Agency

or KiwiRail was responsible for

the land.

“Summer is coming, it would

be nice if people coming into

Christchurch didn’t have to see

this strip of black next to the

road. This is the first impression

people see,” Mrs Eagar said.

She said people are treating

the area as a rubbish dump

at the moment, with broken

glass, bottles and cans littered

everywhere.

The news was welcomed by

Templeton resident Maurice

Adler, who said it was a

“positive” development for the

area.

“It is an eyesore for the people

coming into the city . . . it is just

a matter of cleaning it up, getting

rid of the dead foliage and maybe

putting some chips in,” he said.

Mr Adler said about a month

after the fire, good work was

done to pull down damaged

fences and sheds by the railway,

but nothing was done about the

landscaping.

It is not the first time

maintenance along the railway

tracks has been a problem.

In January, Hornby resident

Mark Peters slammed the lack

of work on State Highway 1

and raised concerns the weeds

next to the tracks adjacent to

Carmen Rd could be a potential

fire risk due to trains. The

overgrown grass was cleaned up

in February.

He said it was good to see

KiwiRail finally say it was going

to clean it up.

But Mr Peters said KiwiRail,

the city council and NZTA

needed to sort their relationship

out so they can act faster and do

what is good for the community.

UNSIGHTLY: Templeton

Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar has

been battling for an untidy

piece of land to be cleaned

up after it was damaged by

fire in February.

Opposition to proposed mall expansion

• By Claire Booker

RUSHED AND not needed.

Those are the key messages

coming out of a decision to grant

resource consent which will see

a huge expansion of Merivale

Mall.

Mall owner TEL Property

Nominees plans to turn the

current 6308 sq m mall into an

11,833 sq m mall, with a threelevel

car park

and 24 twostorey

homes

included in

the project.

But residents

are not

happy.

Says

Chris Aynsley

Merivale

Precinct Society

president

Chris Aynsley: “I think the decision

has been rushed.

“I think the people of Merivale

and Christchurch should’ve had

the benefit of being able to lend

their opinion and have some

robust discussion without this

thing being rubber-stamped in

a way that wasn’t very democratic.”

Mr Aynsley disputed the view

of the city council hearings panels

which granted the resource

consent which said effects on the

three-level car park and 24 two-storey homes in the area.

community would be minor. “If

you’re going to double the square

footage of the mall, then you’re

going to double the traffic, double

the number of staff, and that’s

going to spill into the streets,”

Mr Aynsley said.

Residents are angry the city

council hearings panel which

granted the resource consent

said public consultation on the

plan was not required.

They have major concerns

about the impact on traffic in the

area.

But the hearings panel said

‘no adverse effects of the activity

would be more than minor.’

Traffic engineers advised the

hearings panel the expansion

would have “negligible” impact

on Papanui Rd traffic volumes.

Mr Aynsley’s concerns are

shared by a group of residents

and business people, who plan to

appeal the city council’s consent.

Frank Van Schaijik, who

lives in Merivale and also owns

Aikmans Bar and Eatery, and

Aikmans Pizzeria and Sports

Bar, says the expansion would

affect the area’s community feel.

He has been in contact with a

lawyer to challenge the process

which granted the resource

consent. He wants to have the

consent revoked.

“We have a good following

of locals. I don’t think we need

more hospitality or retail,” said

Mr Van Schaijik.

Signs on residential properties,

including Mr Van Schaijik’s,

have appeared in protest against

the expansion.

Merivale resident Val Williams

also told Western News she is

against the expansion.

“It’s a boutique mall, and I like

the village strip shopping feel.

There’s already enough to build

on to make it vibrant, just have it

smaller and do better . . . shoving

in a parking building isn’t going

to enhance Merivale,” she said.

Gillian Archbold, who lives

in Fendalton, is a regular mall

user and thinks the expansion is

ridiculous.

“I think this is a sign of a

dysfunctional council. Anyone

who comes here knows this road

[Papanui Rd] is full of cars, this

will have a terrible impact on

traffic. Just leave it as it is,” she

said.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman

Sam MacDonald said he

hoped the consent application

would have been notified, which

would have allowed for public

consultation.

The community board would

closely follow the proceedings of

the mall expansion.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said

the hearings panel appreciated

the public concerns over the

resource consent for the mall.

But the panel was bound by

the statutory process under the

Resource Management Act.

“This process is tightly

prescribed and consultation

can only be undertaken in

limited circumstances. These

circumstances were canvassed

thoroughly in the decisions,” he

said.

A Merivale Mall spokeswoman

said the resource consent is a

model for the future, and there

is currently no plan in place. She

said the consent process is ‘just a

future-proofing model, and there

is no intention to develop.’

The hearings panel report

said there were no special circumstances

to warrant public

notification.

“We [hearings panel] acknowledge

a proposal such as this

may attract public attention or

interest, but the district plan anticipates

significant development

of the land within the zone for

a range of uses at a substantial

scale, subject to acceptable outcomes

being achieved with regard

to relevant adverse effects.”

Max takes on the world

at economics Olympiad

MAX SURVEYOR fought off

fierce competition to finish third

at the International Economics

Olympiad in St Petersburg,

Russia.

Max, who lives in Fendalton,

is in his final year at Christ’s

College. The 17-year-old was the

only secondary school student

in the five-strong New Zealand

team.

They competed

against 29 countries

at the event and

answered questions

on financial literacy,

economics and a

business case study.

Max received

the third-highest

individual score and

the New Zealand

team finished

seventh.

“When I first

arrived at the

Olympiad, I realised

most people

there had graduated and were

studying at business colleges.

I was worried I was going to

embarrass myself so each night

after dinner I would read over

my textbooks until 3am,” he

said.

“Economics is not an exact

science and this is why I love it.

SCHOOLS

Max Surveyor

It’s both maths and art. While its

basis is in mathematics, the fact

that things aren’t so clear-cut

leaves room for you to creatively

use the models to explain the

problems that are thrown in

front of you. I also like politics,

and between politics and

economics, you can pretty much

explain how most of the world

works.”

Christ’s College

head of commerce

William Bell said

Max naturally

picks up concepts

related to economics

and works hard

to improve his

understanding.

Max is now

applying to schools

in the United

States and United

Kingdom.

“Ideally I would

eventually like to

study philosophy,

politics and economics at Oxford

University. I find it funny how

some boys seem to have plans

for their entire future down to

the exact firm they would like

to work for. All I know is that I

would loosely like to work in the

fields of finance, politics or law,”

Max said.

Rangi students artwork to

hang from tree on High St

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

“YOUR FRIENDS are your

rock. They support, strengthen

and hold you up.”

That is the message Rangi

Ruru Girls’ School year 13

students Rosetta Brown and

Hazel White want to get across

when others view their artwork.

Along with their schoolmate

and co-artist Georgina Jolly,

they will now spread the

message of friendship after

their silhouette-themed

artwork Strength in Sisterhood

was chosen to be reproduced

at Hack Circle on the corner

of Cashel and High Sts. The

artwork won the senior category

competition.

Students from Lincoln

High School and Ao Tawhiti

Unlimited Discovery School

in the central city have also

been selected to have their

work displayed with the help of

engineers.

Strength in Sisterhood was

inspired by Rangi Ruru’s school

theme of the same name last

year.

Rosetta, who lives in

Riccarton, said they often see

silhouette portraits of women in

their art classes.

The theme of the competition

was rock, which inspired the

students to create a piece of

artwork representing friendship,

said Hazel, who lives in

Fendalton.

“When we thought of rock we

went straight to friends.”

The students said they were

“excited” and “honoured” to

have their artwork chosen.

They hope others will walk

away with the message of

“empowerment” after they view

the artwork.

“Women don’t need men

to hold them up. They can

stand alone and they can stand

together,” Rosetta said.

All three students have

been heavily involved in the

arts since they started at Rangi

Ruru, which sparked their

friendship.

Both Rosetta and Hazel

plan to study for a Bachelor

of Arts, specialising in design

and painting at Canterbury

University next year, while

Georgina is undecided.

The artwork is likely to be

hung from a tree and made

using either metal or perspex,

depending on what best suits the

design.

RICCARTON HIGH SCHOOL Te Kura Tuarua o Pūtaringamotu

BIRCH HILL FACILITY TO BE COMPLETED THIS YEAR

Work continues at Riccarton High School’s new

outdoor education facility at Birch Hill, North

Canterbury with tradesmen preparing to move

on site to connect the various services – gas,

electricity, plumbing, and completion expected

over the next couple of months.

Purchased from the University of Canterbury

in 2018 and transported to Birch Hill during

the recent school holidays, the two buildings

comprising the main part of the facility will

accommodate a commercial kitchen, dining

room and classroom space in one, and an

ablutions block, additional bunkroom space,

staff quarters and a manager’s office in the

other.

Once the services are connected the next

stage will be the internal fit-out, with all work

now moving at a steady pace after some

lengthy delays around aspects such as consent

processes, Principal Neil Haywood says.

“We are very excited about creating a new

outdoor education programme for Birch Hill,

which will be modelled on the traditional Kokiri

programme we used at our West Coast facility,

but obviously this will be adapted for the new

environment,” Neil says.

Situated close to Mt Thomas Forest Park and

Ashley Gorge, the facility is ideally located

for the creation of an outdoor education

programme, he says.

Only 50 minutes’ drive from Riccarton High, it

is also much more accessible than the facilities

on the West Coast were, and available all year

round.

“The other exciting aspect is that Birch Hill will

also be available for other school groups to

Work on the relocated buildings will be

carried out over the coming months

use, such as leadership training and field trips

for curriculum areas such as geography and

biology.”

The facility will provide bunk-room

accommodation for 40 students and

accommodation for a manager, outdoor

instructors and staff.

The Birch Hill outdoor education facility will be

ready by the end of the 2019 school year, with

everyone looking forward to using what will be

an excellent asset for the school, Neil says.

OvERwHELMING RESPONSE TO CuTTING-EDGE PRODuCTION

CLEvER BOOKwORMS TAKE OuT READERS CuP

Four Year 9 RHS students recently took

top honours in the regional Readers Cup

competition, narrowly beating close rivals

Cashmere High, with a total of eight schools

competing.

The four – George Grundy, Sam Dowrick,

Michael Lu and Lara Stevens, had won the

in-house competition at RHS, and to prepare

for the regional competition were required to

read six books. For that competition they had to

answer seven questions on the books, with just

30 seconds allowed to answer each one.

Following their win, the RHS students will

compete in the national finals in Term 4, which

will be via a digital link. Seven schools from

around New Zealand will take part.

The students are waiting to hear which books

they will be required to read for that, and once

they know, there will be a lot of time spent

reading over the coming weeks. The RHS team

members are hopeful they can again read their

vOLLEYBALL COACHING AT RHS BREEDS NZ REPS

Volleyball has been a popular sport at Riccarton

High School for a number of years, thanks

to the head of PE, Chris Nielson, who is a

keen supporter, girls’ volleyball coach Mary

Edmondson, a former member and current

manager of the national women’s volleyball

team, and sports co-ordinator Angus Gourlay, a

member of the New Zealand men’s team, which

recently drew a four-match series in Tahiti.

Former RHS students Sam Nielson and AJ

Salmon are also members of the New Zealand

men’s team, with Makareta Rademakers in the

New Zealand women’s team.

Many other students have also benefitted from

the coaching and positive influence at RHS

and made New Zealand teams over the years,

including current students, Joe Baxter and Riley

Holland. The two were members of the New

Zealand under-17 team, which competed in

high-performance championships in Florida in

July.

they have the talent to do well.

While they don’t have a choice for the

competition, in their own time George and

Sam enjoy reading fantasy books, Michael

says he likes non-fiction as that makes it more

believable, while Lara enjoys general fiction.

Former RHS student AJ Salmon, left, and

sports co-ordinator Angus Gourlay are members

of the New Zealand men’s volleyball team

“They were playing against older kids and they

beat one of the top US teams,” Angus says.

RHS girls’ and boys’ volleyball teams play in the

inter-school competitions and they are in the

top three every year, come first or second in

the Canterbury championships and go to the

National championships Angus says.

KAPA HAKA GROuP SHOwS STRONG SPIRIT AT REGIONAL COMPETITION

Students from Riccarton High School and St

Thomas of Canterbury College kapa haka

groups joined forces to compete in the Waitaha

regional kapa haka competition held at the

Aurora Centre, Burnside High on August 3.

“A team of teachers from both schools worked

together to support the students. This was a

genuine joining of two schools,” RHS teacher,

Kalina Harmer-Campbell says.

Competing as Te Hononga Wairua, they were

one of 12 kapa haka school groups vying

to impress the judges with their spirited

performances. Each group had to perform

seven aggregate items, and competition was

fierce throughout the day. Tutors Latoya Leef-

Graham and Biancha Biddle composed the

performance bracket for Te Hononga Wairua.

The group comprised not only Maori students,

but students from a number of different ethnic

backgrounds, says Kalina. She and fellow RHS

teacher Ripeka Tamepo work collaboratively

as joint teachers in charge of kapa haka at

RHS. They were thrilled with the students’

A real car was the prop for Greased Lightning

Response to the school’s recent production

of the musical Grease was “overwhelmingly

positive”, says producer and drama teacher

Emma Cusdin.

“With some people there can be preconceived

ideas that Grease is dated because it’s set in

the 1950s, but with female student Yearin

Park playing the role of Danny, it made it quite

cutting-edge – she was perfect for the role,”

Emma says.

“All the students involved did a great job. There

is so much for them to manage with other

school things, but they had the drive to do the

job and do it well. It was a great chance to show

what they are capable of.”

The cast of Grease watch on as

Danny (Yearin Park) and Sandy

(Carmen Holdaway) perform

A highlight of the show was the high-tempo

number Greased Lightning, which featured a

real car on stage. The car had been gifted to

Riccarton High’s drama department by the

Kirwee Players, and the school will in turn pass

it on to another drama group, Emma says.

There were five performances of Grease, four

evening shows and one matinee, with the

audience comprising not only students and

their families and friends, but also people from

the wider community. This gave the performers

a chance to show their talents to an unbiased

audience, Emma says.

performance, which they say demonstrated the

collective mana of the group.

Fund-raising had enabled the group to

purchase their kakahu (costumes) for the 2017

competition. These were worn again this year,

and were seen in the full dress rehearsal held in

the RHS hall a week before the competition.

“About 200 people came to the dress rehearsal

and their support for the kapa haka group was

outstanding. The principals from both schools,

staff and students were there, and they were

very proud of the way the students performed,”

Kalina says.

Good tyres essential

in wintry conditions

Winter’s often wet, icy and generally slippery conditions mean

that good tyres with plenty of tread are essential for safe driving.

Hornby Tyres, on the corner of Main South Road and Shands

Rd, offers a wide selection of quality Goodride and Kumho tyres

for all types of vehicle, with good deals always available. They

will check your tyres and advise if any need replacing.

Established almost a year ago, Hornby Tyres is owned and

operated by local

Hornby couple, Neil and Wendy Frew.

Neil has a strong background in the tyre industry

and is able to advise on the best tyres for your

particular needs. Hornby Tyres has free loan cars too,

so you can drop your car off there in the morning to have tyres

fitted and pick it up on the way home.

Your car battery can also create problems in winter, Neil says,

with cold, frosty mornings sometimes causing it to go flat. Not

what you need when you are late for work!

To avoid that happening, call into Hornby Tyres for a free

battery check. They can supply and fit a new Bosch battery if

yours needs replacing.

Hornby Tyres also provides full mechanical repairs and

servicing and can arrange your WOF.

House of Travel couple

bring home bag full

of windsurfing trophies

• By Jess Gibson

THE MERIVALE House of

Travel owners have returned

from their trip to Hawaii with

extra luggage.

Annie Crombie, 51, and

husband Terry Beentjes, 53,

each bagged two trophies at

the US Slalom Windsurfing

Nationals in Maui from July

27-29.

Crombie won the sport section

and was third in the women’s

competition, while Beentjes

was second in both the semi-pro

and men’s 40-59 racing events.

“We’re stoked. We didn’t have

any expectations to be on the

podium,” Crombie said.

Both took part in 24 races

over the three-day event and

had only trained for one week in

the lead-up to the competition.

“We came out of winter and

haven’t windsurfed since February

so it was a hard seven days.

I got blisters all over my hands

and feet,” Crombie said.

She said they stayed fit before

heading over by mountain biking

and doing yoga.

Beentjes almost opted out of

competing after he broke his

thumb the day after the flights

were booked.

“He was only three weeks

out of his plaster when he competed.

Once we got up there the

vibe of the event got a hold of

him,” Crombie said.

The couple had more than

just trophies to celebrate during

the prize-giving – it was on the

same day as their 31st wedding

anniversary.

Crombie and Beentjes have

both been windsurfing since the

early 90s and have competed

in many competitions in New

Zealand and overseas.

Crombie said their two

teenage daughters, Kate and

Emma, have been all “around

the world to windy places.”

Tasty Bites

Getting protein through a science-based diet

The role of protein in

people’s bodies, its

sources and the benefits of

consuming it across the day

can’t be underestimated.

These recipes provide a

science-based approach to

ensuring you get enough in

your diet

Orange kumara and

haloumi fritters

Serves 4

Ingredients

1.2kg orange kumara, peeled and

coarsely grated

320g haloumi, coarsely grated

2 tsp ground cumin

Light olive oil spray for cooking

2 cloves garlic, crushed

4 spring onions, white part thinly

sliced into rounds, green part

thinly sliced diagonally

120g baby spinach leaves

Avocado dressing:

80g medium-sized avocado

⅓ cup (80ml) white wine vinegar

or apple cider vinegar

½ tsp dijon mustard

Directions

To make the avocado dressing,

blend all the ingredients in a jug

with a hand-held blender until

smooth. Season with black pepper

and set aside.

Heat a large non-stick frying

pan over low-medium heat.

Combine the kumara, haloumi

and cumin in a bowl and season

with freshly ground black pepper.

Lightly spray the pan with

olive oil and drop in firmly

packed cup measures of the

kumara mixture, pressing down

to form 8cm circles. Depending

on the size of your pan, you will

probably need to do this in two

batches of four.

Cook for 5min each side

or until golden and cooked

through. Remove and cover to

keep warm. Lightly spray the pan

with a little more oil and increase

the heat to high.

Add the garlic, white part

of the spring onion, spinach

and 60ml water. Cook, tossing

constantly, for 2min or until the

spinach has just wilted. Remove

the pan from the heat and season

with black pepper.

Serve two kumara fritters per

person, layered with the spinach

mixture. Spoon over the dressing

and sprinkle with the green

spring onion.

Roast herb chicken and

vegetables

Serves 4 with leftovers

Ingredients

½ cup finely chopped flat-leaf

parsley

2 Tbsp finely chopped rosemary

1 Tbsp mixed dried herbs

6 cloves garlic, crushed

¼ cup (60ml) olive oil

¼ cup (60ml) red wine vinegar

1.8kg lean chicken tenderloins

1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

7 carrots, sliced into rounds

7 zucchini, thickly sliced into

rounds

750g button mushrooms

Light olive oil spray for cooking

1 cup (250ml) salt-reduced

chicken stock

Lemon wedges and flat-leaf parsley

leaves, to serve

Ingredients

Heat the oven to 200 deg C (or

180 deg C fan-forced).

Combine the parsley, rosemary,

dried herbs, garlic, olive

oil, vinegar and chicken in a

large bowl. Season generously

with freshly ground black pepper

and toss well to coat the chicken.

Divide the vegetables among

two large roasting tins and

lightly spray with olive oil. Toss

to combine, then top evenly with

the chicken mixture.

Pour half the stock over the

ingredients in each tin. Bake,

swapping the tins halfway

through and tossing the chicken

and vegetables, for 25-30min

or until the chicken is cooked

through and the vegetables are

soft.

Divide one-third of the chicken

and vegetables among four for

dinner, with lemon wedges and

parsley. Cool the leftovers, then

divide evenly between two large

airtight containers.

Store the leftovers in the fridge

for up to two days or in the

freezer for three months. Thaw

the frozen mixture in the fridge

overnight. Transfer the chilled

mixture to a baking dish and

reheat in a preheated 220 deg C

(200 deg C fan-forced) oven for

15-20min or until hot and crisp.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Superior new magnesium

offers more health benefits!

Magnesium deficiency is widespread with

researchers estimating up to 90% are not

receiving adequate magnesium in their diet.

According to medical researcher Dr. James

DiNicolantonio magnesium deficiency

increases the risk of numerous types of

cardiovascular and other diseases, costing

nations around the world an incalculable

amount of healthcare costs and suffering, and

should be considered a public health crisis.

Some of the typical signs of a magnesium

deficiency are: muscle cramps – especially

in the legs, muscle spasms and twitches,

fatigue, high blood pressure, poor

circulation, sore – heavy or uncomfortable

legs, irregular heart-beat, muscle and back

pain, insomnia, headaches, migraines and

anxiety. Sub-optimal magnesium levels are

also associated with many diseases including

diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s,

cardiovascular, ADHD and kidney.

There are many popular magnesium

supplements on the market, however most

use low cost sources of magnesium that are

also poorly absorbed offering little benefit.

Seeing the serious impact on health that

low magnesium levels are having a New

Zealand company “Biosphere Nutrition”

have developed a new magnesium that offers

superior absorption and more health benefits

compared to most other products available.

Biosphere Magnesium has been created to

be the cleanest, most bioavailable magnesium

supplement available. It combines three

types of the most bioavailable forms of

magnesium to create the ideal dose with

optimal absorption. Each serving provides

a therapeutic dose of 400mg elemental

magnesium to help people maintain

optimum magnesium levels. It is also easy

to take as it comes as a great tasting, easy to

mix powder that is also free of binders, fillers

and artificial ingredients. It is flavoured with

a natural lemon flavour and sweetened with

natural stevia and monk fruit extracts and

coloured with a dash of turmeric.

Magnesium Citrate is the first of the three

magnesium’s. Biosphere have used a natural

marine based magnesium citrate as it has a

great absorption rate and mixes well with

water.

Next is Magnesium Lyscinate Glycinate

Chelate a stable magnesium designed to be

the most bioavailable possible as well as easy

on the stomach.

The last is Di Magnesium Malate a

fantastic form of magnesium for people

suffering from fatigue, since malic acid is

a vital component of enzymes that play

a key role in ATP synthesis and energy

production.

Optimal magnesium levels have been

shown to: Improve Energy, Improve

Sleep, Normalise Blood Pressure, Control

Inflammation, Reduce Pain, Regulate Blood

Sugar, Stop Cramping, Support Normal

Nerve and Muscle Function, Support Healthy

Bones and Help Maintain Good Health.

Biosphere Magnesium and further more

detailed information is available from

the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s

Health & Natural Therapy, 101 Seaview

Road, New Brighton, and Phone: 388-5757.

We are always happy to help you!

HOME & HEATING

Get rid of

dampness in

your house

The facts about

Home Ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

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.

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to forced,

or mechanical, ventilation over opening

windows, including warmth, security,

reduction of outside noises and reduction

of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm in winter or

cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is a ‘balanced

pressure’ system. It extracts air from the

house and at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air pass through

a heat exchanger, which warms incoming

air in winter and cools in summer if air

conditioning is being used. This means that

up to 80% of the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating

or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional

positive pressure systems. However,

with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system

can be installed for a similar price as

a traditional positive pressure system.
