Bus lanes

mooted to

alleviate

congestion

from new

motorway

extension

• By Claire Booker

BUS LANES may be prioritised

to alleviate congestion from a

motorway extension being built

through St Albans.

The Northern Motorway is

being extended through to QEII

Drive and Cranford St and when

completed will effectively slice St

Albans in half. It will also add an

extra 48,000 vehicles a day.

Residents have tried to fight the

extension, but all that can be done

now is to find ways to alleviate the

amount of traffic coming through

the suburb.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

and Papanui-Innes community

boards listened to emotional and

angry residents over the proposal

at a special meeting a fortnight

ago. Then four days later they

made their recommendations and

said prioritising bus use will help.

They said this should take precedence

over installing a clearway. A

clearway is a no stopping area that

allows traffic to flow more freely.

Shirley 108yo’s secret to long life

• By Claire Booker

NINA BROWN has never

smoked or drank and loves her

greens.

And last week, she celebrated

her 108th birthday.

Nina, who is understood to

be the oldest person in New

Zealand, had a beaming smile

as she cut her birthday cake at

Windsorcare Retirement Village

in Shirley.

She has been a passionate

“greenie” all her life, her nephew

Murray Brown said.

“Nina was way green before

green was cool. When she

washed her dishes, she would

use a tub of water and Sunlight

soap. Once the dishes were

clean, she would use the soapy

water to keep the aphids off her

roses,” he said.

Nina has never had any health

issues, other than a couple of

sprained ankles from Scottish

Country Dancing which she did

until she was 90, and a double

hip replacement four years ago.

She also never married.

She would tell the staff at the

retirement village: “I’m going to

be the oldest New Zealander one

day.”

Nina studied to be a teacher

when she was 16 and received a

Master of Arts in english from

Canterbury University.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

She worked as a teacher in

England in the 1930s, until she

was sent home when World War

2 broke out.

“Her passions were teaching

and travelling,” Mr Brown said.

When she arrived back

in New Zealand, she taught

students throughout the war,

and although her speciality was

english, the shortage of teachers

saw her teaching a range of

different subjects, including

brandy in it.

Nina enjoyed a cup of tea and

birthday cake with some friends

and received a hand-written

card from Prime Minister

Jacinda Arden, and cards from

Lianne Dalziel, the Queen and

Government House – which she

read without any assistance.

Meanwhile, New Zealand’s

oldest man, Ron Hermanns,

who also lives in Christchurch,

will celebrate his 108th birthday

this week.

Perfect outcome elusive

•From page 1

Cranford St was planned to be

used as a clearway once the extension

opens next year. But with

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

and Papanui-Innes community

boards recommendation, this

means the bus lane could take

priority.

The boards

also asked city

council staff

to look at park

and ride options

near QEII

Drive.

The decision

Mark Wilson

will now go to

the city council

at its meeting

on Thursday.

Papanui-Innes board member

and city councillor Mike Davidson

said the boards were never

going to be able to create a perfect

outcome for the community

“So what we’re trying to

achieve is the best outcome with

the limited ability we do have.

No one wants the motorway, if

we had made a decision today on

whether we should have done a

motorway, it would have never

happened,” he said.

All board members apart

from Linwood-Central board

member and city councillor Yani

Johanson voted in favour of the

‘If we had made a

decision today on

whether we should

have done a motorway,

it would never have

happened’

– Mike Davidson

recommendations.

“I’m really concerned that the

plan is actually going to create a

lot of problems on other streets,”

Cr Johanson said.

Cr Johanson thinks the

improvements are not the right

approach and wasn’t convinced

Environment Canterbury would

fund the proposed public transport

lanes on Cranford St.

CONGESTION: The proposed

clearways on Cranford St

may be used for public

transport to help mitigate the

effects of the Christchurch

Northern Corridor through St

Albans.

“I can’t see any likelihood that

Ecan would have the money

to be able to fund more public

transport,” he said.

St Albans resident Mark

Wilson said overall he is feeling

good about the recommendations.

“They will prepare the road

for more traffic, but they won’t

allow that traffic to have two or

four lanes flow on. That’s the

minimum really that we’ve been

going on about. I think it’s a

good decision,” he said.

‘It’s just a lovely thing

for the Smarts to gift’

•From page 1

The book was made before it

was possible to photograph the

back of the eye, so all the images

are hand-drawn.

Dr Baddeley has been an

ophthalmologist for 17 years, and

he said the gift of the book was a

very nice thought.

“Patients usually send a letter

of thanks rather than gifts, but

it’s extremely nice of the Smart’s

to gift this to myself and to St

George’s. Myself and my colleagues

will treasure it and keep it

in our department,” he said.

The treatment for Mrs Smart’s

case was a similar approach to

cataract surgery after a report

found some forms of glaucoma

could be treated this way, without

as many risks as laser treatment.

“I think it’s a wonderful,

beautiful gift for our department,

and it just reminds us that

there were times before, when

photographing the back of the

eye was near impossible. It’s just

a lovely thing for the Smarts to

gift,” Dr Baddeley said.

Dr Smart used to receive gifts

when he worked as a general

practitioner and has been collecting

old medical equipment over

many years.

“The reason for giving the

book to Paul is as a token of our

appreciation for his kindness and

professional services and because

Jackie and I are so delighted with

the results of his surgery,” Dr

Smart said.

Mrs Smart was “absolutely

delighted” with the outcome of

her surgery, as she no longer has

to wear the thick spectacles she

once needed.

“It’s a miracle, I couldn’t see

anything at all. It’s changed my

life, you know,” she said.

St Bede’s gets its chapel back

A SEVEN-YEAR, $20 million

rebuild and refurbishment of

the St Bede’s College chapel is

complete.

Devastated by the 2011

earthquake, the chapel was

demolished. For seven years

a temporary chapel was used,

while funding was secured to

enable the rebuild. The campus

master plan was re-designed to

place the chapel at the forefront

of the school.

Rector Justin Boyle said the

chapel is the college’s most important

building.

“The return of the chapel is

a clear statement of who we

are and what we stand for, a

Catholic, Marist College, and we

welcome its return,” said Rector

Boyle.

“The chapel is the soul of our

school, connecting with our

newly-refurbished performing

arts centre and in keeping with

the historic buildings that dot

our grounds. These two wonderful

new buildings reflect our

holistic approach to education,

supporting boys to develop into

well-rounded men,” he said.

Wilkie & Bruce Architects

designed the new chapel in a

collegiate Gothic style to integrate

with the original 1920s

buildings of the campus.

“As well as looking like it’s

always been there, the new

building references the original

by incorporating restored

stained-glass windows, pews,

crucifix and the ornate carved

oak reredos from the old chapel.

Each of the 12 stained-glass

windows tell their own story,

with the centrepiece being the

Matthew Paul Daly Memorial

Window, which reflects the

school’s origins and values in a

depiction of Mary and the teenage

Christ,” said architect and

certified heritage professional

Alec Bruce.

The chapel build was financed

by more than 400 donors, all

of whom were invited to the

and the College Foundation.

officially opened last week with a

KNOW YOUR WORTH

What to do before you sell your

property this spring

The blossoms are out and spring is here – and

that means the real estate market is moving up

a gear as buyers and sellers alike put their plans

into action. If you’re selling a home this spring,

you’ve probably been watching the market and

you already know it’s competitive for sellers

this season.

There are lots of buyers out there and plenty of activity (in

our office we’ve been presenting numerous multi-offers as

buyers compete for desirable homes), but there’s also plenty

of choice, so you’ll need to make sure your property shines

to stand out from the competition. The great news is that it

doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to get your property into

the selling zone – in fact, it probably shouldn’t, because if

you go remodelling bathrooms and kitchens, you never know

whether potential buyers will share your taste or whether

they’ll be quietly adding up the cost of replacing your hard

work anyway!

Keep it simple. Make sure your property is immaculately

clean, from the front gate to the backyard and everywhere

in between. Clean gutters, roofs, paths, fences and, indoors,

clean everything! This will also go a long way towards the

second important consideration – getting rid of odours.

Unfortunately, it can be hard to tell whether your own home is

a bit whiffy, so ask a trusted friend, and make sure it’s wellaired

before viewings (with no smelly foods in the kitchen).

Finally, declutter. Go all Marie Kondo and either get rid of as

much as you can or put it into storage while you’re on the

market. It will be worth the extra cost in the end.

In a competitive market, you’ll also need to surround yourself

with the right people and arm yourself with the latest market

Science journalist addresses

students over climate change

• By Claire Booker

YOUNG CITY climate

activists were visited by

Canadian science journalist

Alanna Mitchell, and her

message was one of hope.

Students and teachers at

Christchurch Girls’ High and

Hillmorton High schools met

Ms Mitchell last week, and she

spoke about her career – with

her speciality being the ocean.

Ms Mitchell has written six

books on climate change, and

her knowledge comes from

following some of the world’s

most celebrated scientists on

their expeditions.

Ms Mitchell is in New

Zealand to do a series of talks

to MAS Insurance members,

and the company wanted to

give her the opportunity to

inspire the next generation

of climate change activists in

Christchurch.

Hillmorton High School

social studies teacher Geordie

Dann said the school’s year 9s

and environment committee

enjoyed hosting Alanna as

the ideas and issues discussed

about the oceans were

enlightening and frightening.

“The students were so keen

EXPERT: Climate change journalist Alanna Mitchell visited

Hillmorton and Christchurch Girls’ high schools to educate

students on climate change. ​

to interact and find solutions

or practical things that

people can do to make real

change before the damage is

irreversible”.

Ms Mitchell also spoke to

about 40 year 8 and 9 social

studies students at Hillmorton

High School.

After each talk, she spent

time privately speaking with

four students from each

school from the schools’

environmental committees.

Student Charlotte

Koers said: “I think this

was an amazing, different

experience and a new way to

learn more about a topic our

generation is interested in.

I found it really interesting

learning about Coral

Spawning and that it happens

once annually. Overall,

Alanna’s talk was a great

opportunity and one that we

learnt a lot from.”

Ms Mitchell’s overall

message to the students was

that there is still hope, and

she applauded New Zealand

students for being so active in

the climate change space.

“It’s this generation that

is really going to make that

difference in this whole public

discourse about climate

change. It’s so inspiring to hear

about what these students are

doing. They are going to change

the world, I know it. I feel so

much more hopeful having

done this talk – it’s moving and

fascinating,” she said.

At CGHS she talked to about

270 mostly year 12 students,

and assistant principal Sonja

Bailey said she hopes the talk

will open up a lot of horizons

for the students.

Mrs Bailey said the school

supports its students who

are involved with the School

Strike 4 Climate initiative, and

there will be students striking

on Friday.

“If we can support our girls,

that’s our little bit we can do,”

she said.

EAGER: CGHS student Molly Smeele

asking climate journalist Alanna

Mitchell questions on climate issues.

Christchurch Girls’ High School year

11 student Molly Smeele shares her

thoughts on Alanna Mitchell’s talk at

the school.

“I think it’s really important that

young people, especially women,

get to hear adults and other women

speak who are passionate about the

environment and understand the

effects of climate change so they can be

empowered to take action themselves.

Because it is our future and we need to

take action.

“I’m a member of the School Strike 4

Climate Change team in Christchurch

and we are organising a march on the

September 27. I believe it’s important

that we push our Government and

large corporations to take more

ambitious action to prevent the effects

of climate change.

“I learnt a lot more about the science

side of the ocean from Alanna, and

I also learnt a lot about journalism

and how it can be a great pathway

to understanding and spreading

awareness about climate change and

climate action.”

our Local Views

With the community board terms nearing their end, Papanui-Innes and Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood community board chairs

Ali Jones and Sam MacDonald reflect on what the boards have achieved in the last three years.

Committed to the best outcome

IT’S BEEN a very busy threeyear

period with a number of

really complex, contentious and

challenging issues for the board

to navigate.

It’s also been incredibly

rewarding for us all, with a lot

of contact with our community,

particularly the youth who

we support to attend sports,

leadership and cultural events

locally and overseas.

Although it has been a long

process and large elements of

which have been dictated to by

the legal framework, the Downstream

Effects Management Plan

engagement has been our biggest

achievement.

Every member remains committed

to achieving the best

outcome for the community

from a major road being forced

upon us. As I said during the

process, we are not going to please

everyone with the decisions made

around the DEMP, however, the

broad engagement and robust

interaction with our community

has enabled us to consider and

subsequently make more than 50

changes to the plan which is going

to be presented to the city council.

That wouldn’t have happened

if we hadn’t had the community

so passionately involved and

Ali Jones

engaged. We are very grateful to

everyone who took the time and

made the effort to get involved.

Other board achievements

this term include, finally getting

emissions and vibrations monitored

for Cranford St before the

Northern Corridor opens and

the ongoing success of our Edible

Garden awards which are getting

bigger and better every year.

We have worked really hard on

improving our communication

with residents and one way we

have done this is by establishing

a Facebook page (we are the only

board to do this) and keeping

it up to date with information

pertinent to the area.

In the Papanui Ward, the

ongoing development of Papanui

Bush in Bridgestone Reserve

has been a success, the Papanui

slow speed zone, and the

opening of the Neighbourhood

Links building were also good

achievements.

Across in Innes, the pump

track on 10 Shirley Rd has been

approved, and should be in place

for the next Summer, sorted out

roading issues in Richmond and

saw the formation of a working

group to determine the best

design feature for the new St

Albans community centre.

We can always do things

better, and we will not please

all of the people all of the

time – but we always try our

best and are always up for

constructive criticism and robust

conversations.

Thank you to the Papanui-

Innes board members for

their unwavering focus on

representing our community this

term, and bringing a passion and

energy to an important role in

our local democracy.

Productive three years

on many fronts

IT’S BEEN a productive three

years for the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board on a range of

fronts.

THe board operates on

delegations from the city council

in an effort to make more

local decision making, and to

ensure the city council table

concentrates on city-wide issues.

While it is difficult to capture

everything I wanted to touch

on there are a few tangible outcomes

our board has worked on.

Most recently we finally got

the green light from the city

council to install traffic lights at

the Harewood, Breens and Gardiners

Rds intersection, this has

been a long fight but it’s good to

see it progress.

Often we are approached by

community groups who have an

interest in a something significant

in our board area, of note

was the consultation to consider

the Avonhead Cemetery be recognised

as a memorial cemetery.

This is particularly relevant

following the earthquakes and

after a huge effort by the Friends

of Avonhead Cemetery.

We have had pedestrian lights

Sam MacDonald

installed outside St Andrews’

College in a bid to make it safer

for students crossing Papanui Rd.

We have approved and instructed

city council staff to undertake the

work required to modernise the

Lake Roto Kohatu facilities which

will make it far more accessible

and user-friendly for everyone

who uses this (particularly over

the summer).

Council

needs to

focus on

the basics

•From page 8

It has been pleasing to see

both the Bishopdale Library

open post its earthquake

rebuild and I’m sure everyone

who uses Jellie Park will value

the redevelopment that has occurred

there.

We have had a record number

of students present to the

board over this term updating

us on what they are achieving

locally, and so many community

groups have partnered with

the board to strengthen their

work in the local community.

While we undertake a lot of

outcome-driven work in the

local area, we also advocate to

the city council at every annual

budget and Long Term Plan

on behalf of residents, we have

continually reminded the city

council that it needs to focus

on the basics and reinvest the

rates everyone in our wards

pays back into our part of the

city.

We are all looking forward

to what the next three years

bring.

Dedication to school breakfasts recognised

• By Claire Booker

NORTHCOTE community

breakfast volunteers have

been recognised for their

dedication with an ‘unsung

heroes’ award.

Charlotte Clark and Angie

Durey from Neighbourhood

Links were runners-up in the

South Island Section of the

Unsung Hero Award for their

work with the breakfast club at

Northcote School.

At the club, students and their

families are provided with a

healthy breakfast of porridge, cereal,

toast, baked beans, yoghurt,

fruit and Milo.

“Charlotte’s porridge has

become quite famous, certainly

one of the favourites of breakfast

club. We like to do special

breakfasts for the last day of each

term, random pancake days and

we are excited to be planning

our second Christmas breakfast

again,” Miss Durey said.

Northcote School principal

Justin Perriam nominated the

women for the award, who have

been involved with the meal

since May 2018.

“We had identified a need

within the school community to

offer breakfast to some students

who were not having it at home.

It allows us to ensure that no

child needs to start the school

day hungry,” he said.

The women said the most

rewarding part of being involved

with the club is the smiles, hugs

and stories they are told daily.

“For us, the value of connection

with our community is the

biggest reward,” they said.

Miss Clark said the two

women were surprised to receive

the award.

“We both were very surprised.

But to be acknowledged and

appreciated by the children of

our community was probably the

tear jerker,” she said.

Miss Durey said receiving the

award was “huge.”

“I never thought I would

receive anything this special. I

certainly didn’t realise it meant

this much to the school and the

community. I am very grateful

to them for nominating us,” she

said.

Kylie McKay.

About 30 per cent of students

at the school attend the club on a

regular basis.

“It also provides opportunities

for students and their families

to meet and connect with each

other in a welcoming, safe

environment.

“Everyone is welcome, even

if you’ve already had breakfast

at home. It’s about creating

a sense of community,” Mr

Perriam said.

Swedish influence in Papanui

Papanui Heritage Group’s

Murray Williams writes

about Ola Larson’s

journey from Sweden to

Papanui. Research by

Christine Grant

OLA LARSON, who was

born in Sweden in 1846, led a

most interesting life, 11 years

of which was spent in New

Zealand and a significant part

of this in Papanui.

He and his wife, Johanna,

were to produce 10 children,

the first three Elida, Sigrid and

Hulda were born in Sweden.

In the 1870s, the New Zealand

Government was keen

to increase the population to

develop the new country to the

extent of subsidising the passage

of suitable migrants.

The Larsons were ideal

candidates, Ola was a landscape

gardener and his wife,

a dressmaker. They were also

nurturing a growing family;

their fourth daughter, Alfreda

Marina Oceana was born at

sea en route to New Zealand

in 1874 and Amy, William,

Nanny and Oscar Alfred in

the country in which they

hoped to settle permanently.

Their English names

perhaps suggest a desire to

displayed. ​

assimilate into the life of the

then British colony.

The family settled into a

rented cottage at Papanui

while Ola worked for Robert

Heaton Rhodes senior on his

estate named Elmwood now

the site of Heaton Intermediate

School in Heaton St.

According to Larson’s journal,

the two had an excellent

working relationship and he

considered his position as the

best job he had ever had.

During this period, Ola

met Elder Shrikes, a Mormon

missionary and the latter

made such a strong impression

that Ola became a member of

the Church of the Latter Day

Saints.

However, such was the

suspicion with which the new

American religion was viewed

that Ola faced persecution that

ranged from losing his job

at Elmwood to being chased

from a meeting by an angry

mob.

When the Larson’s son

Oscar died at the age of five

months, the St Paul’s vestry

refused to permit the child’s

burial in the Anglican graveyard

at Papanui.

Ola now had to make his

own work and learned a new

trade as a basket maker. There

are several examples of his

applying for permission to

harvest poplar cuttings along

the Avon.

This highly pliable wood was

used as the raw material for his

basketwork.

In July 1885 the Larson

family left New Zealand and

travelled to Utah, the US

territory which was the home

of the Mormon religion.

There, the last two children

of the marriage were born,

and the Larson family had

finally found an environment

where they could settle

permanently.

Fight still on for club’s cricket nets

Old Boys

Collegians

Cricket Club

secretary

and senior

player David

Wakefield

shares his

views on

the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community

Board decision not to

approve the lease for

proposed cricket nets

at Elmwood Park after

members of the community

expressed frustration about

the size of the proposed

nets. Further consultation

will be undertaken by the

city council in the coming

months

OBVIOUSLY THERE has

been a lot of fanfare around

our proposed redevelopments

recently.

It has been a very long process

from the inception of the plans,

with well over two years of continuous

consultations and correspondence

with the city council

to get our proposals to this point.

So to not get it approved is very

frustrating. We feel that the essence

of our proposals has been

lost in the process.

We are trying to redevelop

existing facilities (cricket nets).

A primary concern with our

proposal has been the size of the

nets. The nets as they currently

are, are very open and unsafe.

Anyone who frequents Elmwood

Park would be well aware of the

dangers that flying balls from

these nets pose to passers-by

who use the path.

We are trying to pre-empt

accidents from occurring by

designing the new replacement

nets to be fully enclosed. Bowlers

need run-ups in cricket,

naturally, that will mean the nets

have to be longer to account for

this. This is where the increased

size of the nets comes into it.

These nets will be free for the

public to use them and will be

a fantastic community facility

to be enjoyed by sportspeople

young and old for many years to

come. We are looking forward

to providing this facility for the

community, of which, the vast

majority of our progressive and

inclusive club is a part of.

Elmwood Park is shared by

many people passionate about it.

We are trying to make sure everyone

can continue to enjoy the

park and co-exist without having

serious accidents which we are

trying to avoid.

REPLACEMENT:

The existing

cricket nets at

Elmwood Park,

the Old Boys

Collegians

Cricket Club

wants to use

longer nets to

improve safety

during training.

During this process, we have

unfortunately become victim

to a few factors which have not

helped us. A very vocal minority

has disproportionately affected

the local board’s decision- their

decision at the last meeting

reflected the effect of this.

Perhaps if our 500+ junior

players had a vote in the upcoming

local elections, there would

have been a different result at the

meeting. Our club is very much

a part of this community and we

feel this was not appropriately

taken into account.

There was a very thorough

report of the proposal drafted by

the city council for the community

board recommending that

the net proposal be approved, as

well as taking into consideration

the consultation process where

over 100 submissions indicated

clear support for the proposals in

comparison with 14 indicating

clear opposition.

We have worked extremely

hard to raise $100,000 worth of

grant funding for the redevelopment

of the nets, which we may

lose as a result of the time-consuming

setbacks we have faced

throughout this process.

However, in spite of all this,

we are committed to continue

working on our proposal so that

we can strike the right balance

and come up with something

that the community can be

proud of and enjoy safely for

generations to come – as we

feel it is something that must

be done, for the safety and

enjoyment of all those who

frequent Elmwood Park.

Bad health no hurdle to

Mason’s singles title

• By Adrian Seconi

FENDALTON teenager Abby

Mason battled a cold and her

doubles partner to claim the

Otago Indoor Open women’s

singles title in Dunedin.

The St Margaret’s College

15-year-old coughed her way

through the match but also

slammed her backhand and

forehand to power her way to

a 6-3, 6-7, 6-2 win against rival

and tournament No 1 seed Kelly

Southwood.

The pair teamed up to win the

women’s doubles title earlier in

the day.

They beat Angela Fitzgerald

and Belinda Hirst 6-0, 7-5. They

also play club tennis together in

Wellington – Mason commutes

to the capital regularly.

But the partnership was put on

hold for the singles final. Mason

was hitting the ball harder earlier

and broke her rival’s serve to take

a 4-2 lead.

Southwood could not find a

way back in the set and the final

looked to be heading for an early

finish when Mason went up 3-0

in the second set.

But this time Southwood was

able to find a crack.

She broke her opponents serve

and held her own to trail 3-2.

Game six was backwards and

forwards. Both players had an

opportunity to win the game but

Southwood eventually prevailed.

But she followed up some hard

work with a poor serving game.

Mason served for the game at 5-4

and again at 6-5 but could not

finish.

She fluffed some easy shots

when coming into the net and the

odd overhand went wayward as

well.

The errors proved costly.

Southwood won a tiebreaker 7-5

to claim the second set.

But Mason put aside the

squandered opportunities and

produced a more polished effort

in the third set to claim the win.

Both players hit the ball with a

lot of power but Mason had the

edge with her backhand.

Our kapa haka team has combined with

brother school St Bede’s College to

produce a ‘super group’ which gave a

moving performance at the Secondary

Schools’ Kapa Haka Whakataetae

Regionals. For many, it was a ‘first time on

the stage’ experience.

We are also underway exploring our

school’s cultural narrative. As well as

relocating Marian College in 2023 and

all we represent, building a new school

involves weaving the history and story

of mana whenua into the fabric of our

buildings and environment.

On a recent staff only day, we traced the

journey of the school; key women, role

models from our past and shared stories

and memories of the school from its

beginning up to today. We look forward

to future work on our cultural narrative as

plans for our new school develop.

FRANCESCA RELEASES FIRST SINGLE

Our talented Head of Culture

Francesca Humphries has written

recorded and released her first

single. Her beautiful song ‘I had

a dream’ is available now on

iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.

Fran was selected to participate in

an artist development programme

with Nathan Phillips Vocals and

the results are breath-taking.

Well done Fran, we are very

proud of you! You can follow

Rising Japanese rugby star, Hitomi Oka,

has enjoyed the International Rugby

Programme (IRP) so much, she is staying

on at Marian College.

“Both in terms of my rugby and my life

in general, I think I have become far more

resilient and self-driven,” Hitomi says.

“What I like best about Marian College is

that teachers and students are very kind and

welcoming to me.”

Marian College Principal Mary-Lou

Davidson says the IRP is an amazing

opportunity for students from all over

the world to come together for high

performance sport development.

“Our Marian students are exposed to the

opportunities sport at this level brings.

They make connections through the

enjoyment of playing sport, develop

manaakitanga and make long-lasting

friendships,” Mrs Davidson says.

Marian has partnered with St Bede’s

College to host the International Rugby

Programme (IRP) from 2019. The 17-yearold

high-performance programme makes

use of the latest technologies and practice.

International students participate in a

combination of rugby training, coaching

and academic learning.

one Senior team to Sydney to compete in the

global round of The Worlds Scholars Cup.

Both teams qualified through the regional

round held in Christchurch.

There are six subject academic challenges:

Arts, Social Science, History, Science,

Literature, Special Area - in this case Unsolved

Mysteries. These are subjects that students

studied before the event. The seniors did

particularly well in these. Team medals are for

Collaborative Writing, Debating and combined

Academic and Scholars Bowl General

Knowledge.

All students achieved at a very high level

in this competition which was attended by

students from 28 countries.

Both teams qualified for The Tournament of

Champions to be held at Yale University in

November.

Tasty Bites

American dessert to top off Kiwi main

This well-known Florida

dessert can be made even

better with a box of fresh

New Zealand limes

Lime Pie

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

250g digestive biscuits, well

crushed

100g butter, melted

Filling

390g sweetened condensed milk

4 egg yolks

1 tsp lime zest

½ cup fresh lime juice

Pinch of salt

300ml cream, whipped

Equipment

20cm pie dish

Directions

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Begin by crushing the biscuits

to a fine crumb.

Add the melted butter and mix

well so all the crumbs are coated

in the butter. Press firmly into

the pie dish covering the sides.

Bake for 15min. Remove and

cool.

To make the filling, mix the

condensed milk with the egg

yolks, lime juice and zest. Mix

thoroughly and pour into the

prepared pie crust.

Bake the pie for 15min or until

set. Remove from the oven and

cool completely.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours,

but preferably overnight.

When ready to serve,

traditionally it is covered with

cream or you can serve it

alongside if desired.

The pie is a great way to top

off a classic South Island main

with meat and three veg

Venison fillet

Serves 4

Ingredients

850g venison fillet

500ml extra virgin olive oil

2 sprigs rosemary

1/2 head cauliflower

1 litre cream

8 heads bok choi

100ml tamari or soy sauce

250g carrots

500g agria potatoes

2 litres beef stock

1 litre chicken stock

500ml red wine (pinot

noir)

Salt, butter and cooking oil

Directions

First cut the venison fillet into

four 200g portions and marinate

in olive oil and rosemary.

Overnight is best, but for at least

a couple of hours.

Put stock and red wine in a

pot and reduce until medium

thickness and sticky, should

have a deep meaty flavour. This

may take an hour or so of rapid

boiling/reduction.

Slice potatoes as thin as

possible and layer into a baking

dish with a light sprinkle of salt

every few layers.

Bring cream to a boil and pour

over potatoes, place in oven at

165 deg C for about one hour

or until golden and cooked

through.

This can be set aside and

reheated or served fresh.

Peel carrots, toss in olive oil

and season. These can cook in

the oven with the potatoes, and

should be golden and soft to the

bite when finished.

Boil cauliflower florets in salty

water with a dash of cream or

milk in the water to make it

cloudy.

Boil for 5-8min until soft, then

blitz in food processor with a

few spoons of butter and salt to

taste until smooth. This can be

easily reheated in a saucepan.

Sear venison in cooking oil in a

hot skillet then transfer to oven

for 5min Saute bok choi in a hot

pan and deglaze with tamari –

that should steam the bok choi

through and add a nice sticky

glaze. Serve cauliflower puree,

venison and jus (gravy) on one

plate and the sides to share are

served in separate bowls.

Serve with red wine vinegar on

the side to help cut through the

gaminess of the venison.

Don’t assume your smoke alarms are working.

Experienced physiotherapists caring

for the St Albans community

ProPhysio is celebrating its fifth

anniversary this September, after

opening the doors to the St Albans

and Edgeware community in 2014.

Offering over 40 years of combined

physiotherapy experience, directors

Megan Williams and Scott Suen

strive to provide a high-quality,

affordable and professional service.

They specialise in treating sporting

injuries, and are also passionate

about looking after people that are

suffering from general muscular

pain, fractures, or spinal conditions,

or recovering from orthopaedic

operations.

The ProPhysio clinic is situated

within the ProMed building

on Sherborne Street, where the

physiotherapists work closely with

the team at the medical centre,

enabling them to streamline

physiotherapy care for their clients

with easier diagnosis and specialist

referral within the same building.

“We believe that giving our clients

the best possible understanding of

their injury will give them the best

possible outcome,” Megan and Scott

say.

“We pride ourselves in providing

quality treatment, and the modern

facilities and technology at ProPhysio

enable us to do just this.”

They also pride themselves in

taking the time to listen to their

clients’ stories, which ensures there is

no information missed, and accurate,

quality treatment can be provided.

Megan and Scott also believe in

keeping treatment affordable.

“We often hear the cost of

physiotherapy treatment is a big

barrier to people seeking the help

they really need, but we have kept

the same reasonable and affordable

pricing since 2014,” Scott says.

Their advice is, don’t leave those

injuries from tidying up the garden,

or those niggling aches and pains

unchecked. Pop down to see the

friendly and experienced staff at

ProPhysio, who will make sure you

receive the best physiotherapy care

the St Albans community has to

offer!

Make an appointment with us

today! Phone 385 1966.

Living together

with a hearing loss

Living with an unaided hearing loss is

basically no fun at all: It’s upsetting for

the person with a hearing loss, but it’s also

frustrating for you as a relative, whether

you are a spouse, daughter, grandchild,

friend or colleague – it affects all of you.

For you as a relative living or being close

to someone with a hearing loss you have

most probably experienced:

• You have to behave as a translator or a

buffer.

• Your loved ones’ social life declines

because going out can be exhausting for

both of you.

• You sometimes feel as if you are slowly

losing your partner, parent or friend to

isolation.

5 Tips to talk about hearing

1. Express care and support. Talk from

your heart with deep compassion and let

them know they have your full support.

2. Guide them through their journey.

Help your loved one discover their

hearing loss – they might not fully

comprehend the extent of it, and neither

do you.

0800 333 606

houseofhearing.co.nz

Aches and Pains?

Poor Posture? Tired,

Stressed Body?

• Deep Tissue Massage

• Hot Rocks

• Pregnancy + Relaxation

• Trigger Point Therapy

• Hip, Shoulder, Neck Injuries

• Postural Issues

3. Be patient. Don’t blame your loved one

for their hearing loss. They might not

realise how much it affects them and you.

4. Be open. After listening to them, express

to them about your feelings too.

5. It’s a sensitive topic. Don’t make

fun of your loved one for not hearing

everything.

Your local House of Hearing clinic is

here to help you and your loved one! Take

the first step with us and get a hearing

assessment. Contact us today to make an

appointment 0800 333 606

gain a

second chance

at ncea

Each year up to 10,000 young people

in New Zealand leave school with little

or no formal qualifications. Many teens

disengage with school as the teaching

environment simply does not suit their

style of learning. Research shows that

without a qualification they are more likely

to have difficulties entering the workforce,

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and

a driver’s licence.

Many early school leavers unfortunately

believe that secondary school is the only

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.

This misconception is particularly

concerning for those young people

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling

environment, but still want to find

employment or complete certain industry

training courses for which an NCEA

qualification is a pre-requisite.

Every year dozens of young people

are getting a second chance at earning

NCEA credits after leaving secondary

school, thanks to Vision College. The

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are

spreading awareness to the young people

in the community, making sure they know

that achieving their NCEA levels outside

of school is within their reach.

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’

programme offers students without NCEA

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of

skills designed to make them employable.

Students earn their NCEA credits in

a more practical way, through games,

hands-on activities, and by applying their

learning to real life situations. Students

also get to experience tasters of different

career and study paths to help them

decide where they would like to head after

completing ‘Ultimate’.

School leavers can also enrol in

Security, Early Childcare or Business

Administration courses to earn not only

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also

a career qualification in just six months.

These courses are all free for anyone aged

between 16 and 19. Upon completion

students can even pathway onto higher

study with Vision College in Web and

Software Design, Early Childhood

Education, and Counselling.

Vision College are enrolling now for

2020! For more information on their

courses, call 0800 834 834, txt “VISION”

Valley of tranquillity

25 Valley Road, Cashmere

Auction: Thursday, 3 October 2019, Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 1 dining room | 2 car-garage | 1 off-street park - Listing Number: BE193366

A private elevated location on Valley

Road this 1970’s architecturally designed

home by Lucking and Vial is waiting for

a new owner. On entering the front door

the first thing you notice is the light that

streams into the living rooms, together

with the popular exposed beams of that

era making you feel instantly at home.

Surrounded by native trees and shrubs

inviting the abundant bird life of Wood

Pigeons, Fantails and Bellbirds, and the

magnificent views, makes you feel like

you’re on holiday every day of the year.

This very spacious home literally has

many layers. A rumpus room and two

bedrooms on the lowest level, ideal for

teenagers to have their own space or rent

as Airbnb. The laundry, bathroom, and a

bedroom on the second; dining, living and

kitchen on third; while on the upper level

is the main bedroom, ensuite and study.

There are several outdoor spaces, a

paved sheltered barbecue area with the

added bonus of a pizza oven to enjoy al

fresco dining with family and friends, a

deck off the third level for a read of the

paper with a cup of coffee in hand, or the

surrounding area including the stepped

pathway to wander through nature.

Zoned for Cashmere Primary and

Cashmere High Schools and close to all

amenities.

A walkway right outside your door, and

the sense of seclusion and tranquillity on

entering the property, what more could

you ask for.

Open Homes Saturday and Sunday

12:00pm - 12:30pm.

The Hamptons

Peter and Kathryn Hampton

As we move into Spring Summer and will

soon be approaching the end of the 2019

year, many people are making choices for

2020 with many people choosing to move

home, change schools, buy a car and

organise another holiday.

Peter & Kathryn Hampton

Licensed Sales Consultants

We make important choices throughout our life; what

schools our children will go to, what food we eat, what

friends we have, where to go on holiday, and the values

we instill in our children. Two of the biggest choices we have to make are; where we live and

when to sell and buy. A crucial component of the process is selecting the right licensed real

estate salesperson to guide you through the mountain of information and industry jargon. A

salesperson can assist in the important task of identifying the right buyer for your house, as

well as understanding your unique requirements and make your next dream home a reality.

It takes great negotiation and sales skills teamed with effective target marketing to deliver

the very best results. Kathryn and Peter can offer you an exceptional real estate experience.

Working as a team we collectively together want to achieve the very best results and the best

outcome. Give us a call today, we would really like to hear from you.

Client Comments

The success of me attaining my property through an Auction was through Peter’s excellent

knowledge and professionalism in all realms of the process. Peter’s ease of communication;

listening to requirements and always following up queries promptly has been amazing.

I appreciated his wise counsel and honesty as I was in the North Island after having had

a positive and thorough viewing time with Peter over 2 days. It is without hesitation I

recommend him.

Frances

Just Listed

1/61 St Albans Street, Merivale

Wikipedia search ‘The Hamptons’ and you will discover pages about a group of villages and

hamlets in Long Island, New York that form a popular seaside resort and one of the historical

summer colonies of the northeastern United States: a community-oriented dwelling place for

affluent families originally descended from salt-of-the-earth, potato farming community stock.

Google search The Hamptons in Christchurch and you will come across a few parallel

observations. A husband and wife team with a passion for Canterbury homes, villages and

hamlets, dedicated to helping sometimes affluent and always salt-of-the-earth families in their

quest to find community-oriented dwelling places.

But let’s cut the sales flannel because that’s definitely not how Kathryn and Peter roll. On the

contrary, if you’re looking for sound, well-researched property advice, without the hype then

look no further. My family and I relocated here from Australia with no prior knowledge of the

various neighbourhoods and an innate fear of buying a property on ground that might be

susceptible to movement. The Hamptons proved to be our salvation… careful, considered and

coherent counsel, always with a smile and delivered with a can-do approach to bespoke house

viewing times and wine-inspired strategy sessions.

The net outcome: we moved into our beautiful new family house in Strowan a few months ago

and what we owe the bank pales in comparison to our debt of gratitude to Pete and Kathryn

for helping us to find our dream home. My mobile number is 027 548 3073 and I would be

more than happy to hear from you if you need any more convincing of why to consider the

Hamptons when thinking of buying or selling a property.
