Jack’s Beehive buzz

• By Bea Gooding

NINE-YEAR-OLD Jack Gregory

wants to be a leader just like Prime

Minister Jacinda Ardern one day.

The Mairehau Primary School

pupil was so inspired by Ms

Ardern’s efforts during Covid-19

that he sent her a thank you

card. And he was elated she had

personally written back.

“Thank you so much for taking

the time to get in touch with me,”

the prime minister responded.

“I’m sorry I’m not able to write

you a longer letter – things are

pretty busy just now, but your

message has given me lots of

energy to keep going.”

Jack, along with his classmates,

was tasked with writing a thank

you card to someone who had

helped him during Covid-19.

Ms Ardern’s comfort and leadership

was what came to mind, something

he aspired to emulate when he

grew up as a leader himself.

“I told her ‘thank you for stopping

Covid-19.’ I just wanted to tell her

that she’s doing a great job,” he said.

He stood up in front of 127 children

and proudly showed off the

letter, which he said he planned to

frame and hang in his room.

His teacher, Hayley Young, said

most of the children chose parents or

grandparents, but Jack was the only

one who thought of someone outside

of his family. • Turn to page 3

ELATED: Mairehau Primary School pupil Jack Gregory sent a letter of praise

to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and was delighted that she responded.

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a nonprofit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her column

aims to raise the understanding of the values and uniqueness of the area.

Harsh weather not kind to fantail

THE FANTAIL is surely one of the

most well known and loved birds.

Who does not enjoy watching this

tiny bird with its distinctive fanned

tail, happy chattering and curiosity

causing it to come within arm’s reach?

You may have even been lucky

enough to have seen a black fantail,

which only make up five per cent of

the fantails. Don’t let them scare you

when you do see one, it really is only

a myth when you hear that they are

harbingers of bad luck.

Both male and female share the task

of incubating the eggs but as soon as

they hatch the female will leave it up

to the male to feed the chicks, as she

will leave to start building another

nest for the next clutch of eggs.

When the chicks from the first

nest can fend for themselves the male

will find her and share incubation,

followed by feeding the chicks and so

on and so on. They can nest up to four

times every season.

Note that the male will need to feed

the chicks every 10min, so he is kept

super busy doing this feeding by himself.

Those nests by the way are supersoft,

comfy and cleverly constructed

using moss, rotten wood fibres, hair,

dried grass and woven together with

cobwebs.

The fantail does not cope

DELICATE: The fantail does not cope very well in harsh winters as, being

so small and fragile, they can not survive harsh frosts.

PHOTO: CLIVE COLLINS

very well in harsh winters as unfortunately,

being so small and fragile

they can not survive harsh frosts. For

this reason, don’t be surprised if on a

frosty day you open your woodshed

or garage to find fantails

sheltering from the cold.

How can we help the fantail to

thrive? Controlling rats in your garden

as they are the key predator of the

fantail.

During winter hang or place a

shallow bowl in a tree with sugary

water to give them extra energy. As

they only eat insects they will not feed

from your birdseed feeder.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

Ms Whitfield was now raising

funds to set up the initiative as

a charitable trust in order to

provide a free service to those

accessing the support.

“When I was diagnosed, it was

difficult to know where to go. I

ended up searching for groups

around NZ but there weren’t

any,” she said.

Diagnosed initially with mild

macular degeneration – where

the central portion of the retina

wears down – she did not respond

to treatment.

She went to another specialist

and was later diagnosed with

central serous chorioretinopathy;

a build-up of fluid causing

Chrissie Whitfield.​

further vision loss.

She said her eye conditions

were caused by consistent use of

steroids which helped manage

her asthma.

“I was terrified. I’ve never gotten

the eyesight back that I lost,

but there have been improvements

after months of lasers and

injections,” she said.

Ms Whitfield currently ran a

support group online under the

same name and had met members

from around the country

going through a similar journey.

It was a place to ask questions

and offered hope and friendship

as well as a place to find important

resources about various eye

conditions.

“Some people don’t understand

the impact of losing that

vision is on your life, and not

being able to do the things you

love anymore,” she said.

Her vision for #Blindsided

NZ as a charity was to provide

that same level of support, but

having a charitable status meant

they could apply for funding

and grants.

Having the extra funding

meant that they could also

provide low vision assessments,

coaching and referrals to established

agencies in conjunction

with the emotional support.

Said Ms Whitfield: “Moving

forward, various clinics, DHBs

and agencies across the country

will work with #Blindsided NZ

as a trusted partner to ensure

that clients have end-to-end support

throughout their journey.

“We aim to fill a gap in the

vision loss client pathway from

pre-diagnosis to supported

living and beyond; we don’t

want anyone falling through

the cracks.”

Pupil elated with PM’s

personal response

• From page 1

“He’s a bright kid and thinks

outside of the box. He thinks

globally and is interested in

humanitarian issues, the government,

geography and likes to go

that extra mile about issues he

feels passionate about.”

Miss Young said she was not

aware he had actually sent the

card until he came to school with

Ms Ardern’s response.

“We were very impressed, we

all felt very proud of him.”

The purpose of the exercise

was to instil the importance

of celebrating the positives,

especially in the first weeks

back at school following the

lockdown.

Said Miss Young: “Before we

can address literacy or numeracy,

we have to give them those basic

concepts of what it is to be a good

person – being thankful is a part

of that.”

RESPONSE: The letter that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern sent to

Mairehau Primary School pupil Jack Gregory, 9, after he wrote to

her praising her response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Cleansed and cured?

Many common health

problems can all be easily

solved with one simple

approach according

to a leading New

Zealand Medical

Herbalist Brett

Elliott. Brett found in

his clinical practice

that most of his clients

have similar common

health complaints and

that it all could be traced

back to digestive disorders. Did you know

up to 50% of the population suffer from

common health conditions like; chronic

constipation, acid reflux, bloating, gas,

ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn’s

disease, coeliac disease, haemorrhoids,

gallstones, cancer, diabetes, high blood

pressure, abdominal weight gain, skin

complaints and many more, these can all

come back to a poor digestive system.

Brett wanted to find a simple solution

everyone could use to support their

bodies natural healing without the side

effects of pharmaceutical medications that

often only ease or cover the symptoms

without healing as well as often having

many side effects. Brett knew everything

in the body depends on the digestive

system working properly and so went

about developing “The Ultimate Herbal

Detox Body Cleanse Program” a simple

to use two week program. It not only

supports the whole digestive system but

also helps cleanse the entire body of toxins

and parasites. The program contains four

different all herb formulas all in capsule

form that need to be taken twice daily.

These capsules can be blended into a

smoothie if you prefer. Colon-aid

is designed to support a healthy

bowel movement, increases the

secretion of gastric juices and

bile and promote appetite and

digestion. Digez-aid soothes

and stimulates healthy digestion

and absorption of vital nutrients.

Sym-lax is a bulking fibre to

cleanse and heal the intestines and

bowels. It also makes you feel less

hungry. Liva-food is the final nutrient

rich formula to support a healthy liver

function. It supports detoxing the body of

toxins and heavy metals.

The program supports the bodies’

organs to do their job. The formulas are

New Zealand made and contain a total

of 24 high potency herbs making it quite

possibly the most comprehensive “do

it yourself ” herbal detox body cleanse

program in the world. Brett has refined

the formula over 20 years and has now

sold over 100, 000 kits world-wide. He

regularly receives incredible feedback

from users with many re-doing the

program once or twice yearly.

With toxic overload and many diseases

sky-rockerting now is the time to make a

positive change by cleansing, nourishing

and helping build your body to a better

health.

Would you like an opportunity to

help people in your community?

Care Solutions is currently setting up a new Supervised

Contact service in the Christchurch area and we are

looking for six contact supervisors. We are a community

based, child focused agency. Visits are for two hours and

venues may vary. This is an opportunity to be part of an

exciting new team.

We are looking for a diverse group of supervisors both

male and female. The role provides for a non-day to

day (visiting) parent to have supervised visits with

their children, ensuring that children are safe, while

supporting and providing an opportunity to rebuild the

parent/child relationship.

The role includes supervising the contact (usually

two hours), keeping the child/children safe, following

any safety plan that may be in place, and writing an

observational report after the contact. Three hours is

paid to allow time for separate handovers between

the parents, the contact itself, and writing the report.

Mileage is paid from home to the contact. Note that

most contacts take place during the weekend or after

school hours.

Training and ongoing support will be

given. A Police vetting will be required

and you will need a full drivers licence.

If you are interested please e-mail

Jenny at jenny@caresolutions.co.nz

Co-ordinator Role

summarise and write Court reports and communicate

skills to interact with all parties including, families,

lawyers, social workers and the Court.

This is an opportunity to work from home with hours

growing quickly from part time to full time. Training

and ongoing support will be given.

A Police vetting will be required and
