Huge

water

use may

lead to

restrictions

SOARING temperatures have

led to unsustainable water use in

Christchurch which could result

in water restrictions.

On February 3, more than 260

million litres of water were used

across the city, an average of

552-litres per

person, resulting

in city

council revealing

the water

supply is under

“extreme pressure.”

A similar

amount of

water was

Helen

Beaumont

used on February 2 when the

temperatures in the city peaked at

35 deg C.

The measurements are the highest

recorded for the city’s water

use in a decade, the city council

said, calling for people to ease

back on their water use in the

coming days.

City council head of three

waters and waste Helen Beaumont

said that level of demand is

unsustainable.

Burnside HS 60th

celebrations a success

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CATCHING UP with old

classmates has been a highlight

for former Burnside High School

student Clive Chandler.

Mr Chandler was a key helper

for a two-day reunion marking

60 years since the school opened

recently.

First-day students who were

at the school when it opened on

February 2, 1960 celebrated the

school’s milestone last Sunday

and Monday.

About 40 former students attended

the two-day event.

Mr Chandler started as a

student at the school when it officially

opened in 1960.

The school opened in a staggered

approach with initially only

about 200 third-formers.

“It has been excellent. It has

been really nice catching up with

people I have not seen for 10-30

years,” Mr Chandler said.

He said while some people’s appearance

had changed a lot, some

people still look the same.

The celebrations have included

poetry, a speech from former

principal John Godfrey on the

school’s past successes, lunch and

dinner and tours of the school.

CELEBRATION: Clive Chandler, Robert Findlay, principal Phil

Holstein and deputy head girl Emma Hollingworth at Burnside

High School’s 60th celebration.

BACK IN TIME: Former students at the official opening of

Burnside High School 60 years ago and current students came

‘We need

people to

stop using

sprinklers’

• From page 1

“Our concern is that if the demand

for water doesn’t lessen significantly,

we won’t have adequate

flow and pressure in some areas,

which is also a big concern when

it comes to the city’s preparedness

for fighting fires,” she said.

“We don’t want to have to

impose water restrictions, but

if the demand doesn’t ease off,

we will have no choice. We need

people to stop using sprinklers

and garden irrigation systems

to water lawns and gardens. If

your garden needs watering, use a

hand-held hose and water before

7am or after 9pm, when it’s cooler.

And please, avoid watering lawns

or grass berms.”

Level four water restrictions,

the highest level, were introduced

in parts of Banks Peninsula last

week, after streams that supply

drinking water to Akaroa,

Duvauchelle and Takamatua

dropped suddenly.

Level 4 restrictions means all

use of water outside the house

must cease.

Pupils prepare for garden festival

SCHOOL PUPILS from St

Albans Catholic School are

among those who have been

preparing for the Grow Ō

Tautahi Christchurch Garden

Festival.

St Albans, Burnside Primary,

St Marks, Heathcote Valley,

Banks Avenue, West Rolleston,

West Eyreton, West Melton, and

Diamond Harbour Schools are

taking part in the festival, creating

display gardens that reflect

their values and surroundings.

It will be held in the Botanic

Gardens from March 20 to 22.

The gardens have been growing

since late last year, but

extra work was needed over the

holidays.

Grow Ō Tautahi festival director

Sandi MacRae said school

kids will be on-site during the

festival to talk to visitors about

their gardens and what they

represent.

“When we were planning the

festival, we were clear it had to

reflect local people and local

ideas. It has been fantastic to get

so many local primary schools

involved to show off their gardening

skills in creations that

reflect their values.

“We’re working closely with

the schools to support their displays,

but these are all their own

creations and it’s their hard work

that has gone in to producing

the exhibits. I know Cantabrians

will love these gardens and they

are sure to be real feature of the

Festival,” she said.

The school garden creations

will include an edible salad bowl,

a celebration of native plants, a

focus on wellness, a reflection

on life in the red zone and many

more ideas.

Grow Ō Tautahi is a free,

homegrown festival designed

specifically for Christchurch. It

is a creative and environmentally

aware event that draws on the

best ideas from the community,

schools, garden designers, scientists,

food gatherers and chefs.

Care and financial certainty

LUXURY: The newly opened Ashley Suites at The Russley Village

aged care facility is offering a New Zealand first payment option

A NEW aged care facility at

a luxury retirement village

in Christchurch is providing

financial certainty for families

looking for quality care and

accommodation for their elders

in what is a New Zealand first in

the aged care sector.

The newly opened Ashley

Suites in The Russley Village is

offering a ‘care bond’ option for

families wanting to pay a lump

sum rather than daily fees for use

of a luxury care unit.

But rather than having to wait

until a unit is re-licensed as in

many other facilities in New Zealand,

the care bond offered at the

Ashley Suites ensures families

are repaid no later than 42 days

after the bond is terminated.

It is a New Zealand first in the

aged care sector and the village’s

parent company, Generus Living

Group, will be offering it as an

option at other care facilities it

is developing throughout New

Zealand.

Director Graham Wilkinson

says research has shown that

while families are happy to

purchase a care unit to secure

a premium level of care and

accommodation for their loved

ones, the uncertainty of when

they would be repaid was a cause

for concern.

“We looked at care models

both in New Zealand and

overseas and felt that an arrange-

to provide better financial certainty.

ment that provided first-class

hotel-style care while providing

security around financial terms

was needed. We believe this will

be the only care facility in New

Zealand that currently offers this

level of comfort.”

Wilkinson has a history of

five-star hotel developments

before starting Generus Living

and the company’s villages take

cues from resorts and hospitality

trends. This latest development is

an elegant mix of care suites and

one and two-bedroom serviced

apartments including in-house

physiotherapist, podiatrist, dietitian-designed

gourmet menu,

dedicated general practitioner,

hair salon, cinema and accessible

swimming pool.

Built on the former site of

the Russley Hotel, The Russley

Village is a mix of villas, townhouses

and apartments and since

opening almost 10 years ago has

been recognised nationally as

one of the most progressive retirement

villages in the country.

It contains its own cafe and brasserie

in its community facility,

The Homestead, and includes a

bespoke cinema, library, study,

computer area, arts and craft

space and a wellbeing suite offering

services such as a hair salon.

Take a free bus to

concert and fireworks

A FREE park and ride service is

going to make it easy to get

to the YES Power Sparks

concert in North Hagley Park

on Saturday.

Sparks, which features the

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

and a dazzling fireworks

finale, is one of the biggest events

on the SummerTimes calendar

and traditionally attracts a crowd

of more than 50,000.

To make travel to the event

easy, a free park and ride service

will operate from Canterbury

University’s Clyde Rd car park

and from the Cranley St bus stop

by Eastgate Shopping Centre.

Between 5pm and 8.30pm

people will be able to park at the

university and the mall main car

park and then catch a free bus to

North Hagley Park.

At the conclusion of Sparks,

buses will return people to the

university and Eastgate. The

departing buses will leave from

Park Tce (across from Peterborough

St) between 10 and

10.15pm.

“The Night Noodle Market is

on the same night as Sparks so

we are expecting a huge crowd in

North Hagley Park.

“The free park and ride service

will ease the pressure on the

central city parking and make

it easy for people to enjoy the

night’s festivities,’’ city council

events and arts manager Lucy

Blackmore said.

“We are also going to have

cycle stands and scooter parking

available in the park, just past the

Armagh St bridge, for those who

want to bike or scooter in for the

night.’’

For those intending to travel

by car to the event, there will be a

drop-off point on Rolleston Ave

between Gloucester St and Armagh

St (outside Christ’s College).

People with mobility passes

will be able to park in the mobility

parking area on Chester St

West.

“It you do plan to come by car

please be aware that the Botanic

Gardens Armagh St car park

will be closed to incoming traffic

from 3pm and closed to all traffic

from 5pm,’’ Ms Blackmore said.

If you are looking for information

about places to park, there’s

a great interactive map on the

city council’s website.

The main Sparks concert will

begin at 7.30pm but there will

be live entertainment in North

Hagley Park from 6.30pm. The

Night Noodle Market will be

operating from 1pm.

The fireworks will begin about

9.40pm.

If the weather is wet, Sparks

will be postponed to Sunday.

New Year

NEW APPROACHES

Welcome to 2020: a new year, a new decade

and for many, myself included, a chance to try

new ways of looking at and maximizing life.

I’ve entered this year in a manner similar to

previous years. I’m excited about the future and

buoyed by the opportunities ahead. Some of

these are already in the planning and some are

absolutely unknown, but will no doubt show

themselves when the time is right (they always

do). I like to stay open to that. As a natural optimist

and perpetual organizer, I also like to review the

previous year, find the lessons – whether good,

difficult or somewhere in between – and then

learn from them.

So, with that in mind, here’s what is resonating

for me as I consider both the personal and the

professional path ahead.

Connection and happiness.

I’ve recently spent time looking at aspects of

well-being and happiness (that’s what a holiday

does for you!) and, as a result, the theme for our

company this year is ‘Well-being and Resilience’.

Why? Well, we know from experience that it

can get very tough in the real estate industry,

whether you’re brand-new or a veteran, and

as a leadership team we’re deeply committed

to relieving some of the stress, insecurities and

constant disappointments that can accompany

the profession. To do this, we’re enlisting the

support of numerous professionals to help in

the journey – experts in nutrition, sleep, financial

management and resilience – which I think will

be a change-maker. We are launching our team

support program with a presentation by a recent

New Zealander of the Year, Mike King.

In doing the research prior to concluding that we

need to increase our support framework, I came

across a study conducted by Harvard University.

This 80-year-old study, known as the Harvard

Study of Adult Development (one of the longest

studies on adult life), found that close relationships

and connection kept people happy and that

embracing a community helped them live longer

whilst also keeping brains healthier.

The study also found that the happiest of the

group of 724 participants credited amongst their

life lessons, a) not sweating the small stuff and b)

letting go of past failures.

As simple as both these lessons sound, neither

is easy, but both are deeply beneficial when

applied to the real estate industry – or many other

industries, for that matter.

So, connection, community, collaboration and

everything these things entail will be a vital part of

the year ahead for our company, as I hope they will

be for you.

If they’re not, and a new career is part of your New

Year plans, contact me. Life is simply too short

to be standing still or feeling disconnected, and

happiness is too fleeting.

Otherwise, try yoga (I'm going to!) and have a

magical year.

bright colours for its annual house

sports day.

The entire school took part in a

range of fun outdoor activities including

swimming, gumboot throwing,

running races, long jump, skipping

and sack races on Tuesday.

The six houses students represented

were Brodie, Claver, Ennis, Grace,

McAuley and Mercy House.

Development manager Keri Crompton

said while it was an enjoyable day

for the students, they are also competing

for house points.

“The day is very colourful and fun,”

she said.

The day culminated in Villa’s spiral

relay, which is a relay race ran by the

entire school.

LUCK OF THE IRISH: Ennis House members Sophie Smith,

Emily Sidaway and Julia Middleditch.

BRIGHT: (Back row) – Brodie House members Caitlyn

Murphy, Jordana Johnston, Molly Wyatt, Grace Henderson

and Sarah Quinn. (Front row) – Nina Tabb, Molly Ujkaj and

FUNKY: (Back row) – Claver

Champion Freight recently expanded operations, developing inhouse

software solutions for clients to enhance and improve logistics services. It

signals an exciting new era for the company, embracing technology

through recruitment and staff development.

Citing Vision College’s strong reputation for academic excellence and

digital expertise, we sought their assistance to appoint a proficient

developer from a range of IT enrolments. This led to the successful

appointment of Elliott who was an undergraduate student at the time.

Working together to facilitate a path to graduation through on-the-job

experience, we were thoroughly impressed with the proactive assistance

provided by Vision College. Elliott’s broad technical knowledge and ability

to adapt quickly to the role is a testament to the quality of tertiary

education provided and we look forward to repeating the process in the

Who we are

Allied Press Limited employs over 450 people on a permanent

basis across its 15 sites in the South Island. We operate across

multiple media platforms (print, online, digital) delivering news,

information and entertainment through our various regional

and city publications, including printing and publishing of

newspapers from our print centre in Dunedin and a commercial

• Preventative maintenance is prioritised to ensure minimal

downtime.

The business has just invested in a major upgrade to the

electrical/electronic systems on the printing press, scheduled to

commence in the New Year. This presents the ideal opportunity

to learn from the installation and commissioning engineers to

enable the successful candidate to hit the ground running.

We are looking for a registered Electrician ideally from an

Industrial background holding a current practising licence. The

ideal candidate would be competent and confident in using

computers and experienced in PLC’s, Analogue/Digital control

and AC/DC motor drive systems. Although not essential,

knowledge of Goss Press and Ferag mailroom will be a bonus.

Further details

This is a full-time permanent position working the day shift from

Monday to Friday, with rostered ‘On call’.

As well as a competitive salary, we offer you a great team

environment, minimal commute time, being based within

Dunedin city, professional development opportunities, job

security and opportunity to grow. Training and support will be

provided for the successful applicant.

If you think this role is for you, please apply by way of CV and

a covering letter. Informal inquiries about the role are welcome

and should be directed to raja.chakrabarti@alliedpress.co.nz
