Safer exit from shopping

centre awaiting final approval

• By Matt Slaughter

THE LONG-awaited removal of

the right turn out of Barrington

shopping centre onto Barrington

St is set to be completed by spring.

The details of the plan will

now go to the shopping centre’s

management for final approval.

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board chairwoman

Karolin Potter said pending that

approval, changes to parking

will also be made to improve visibility

for turning motorists and

those crossing the road.

As well as this, a traffic island

near the exit and entry will be

widened, she said.

The Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board has been calling

for the dangerous turn to be cut

off to improve safety for road users

for about a decade.

Potter said the exit where the

right turn will be removed is frequented

by pedestrians, particularly

elderly people, who cross

the road to get to the shopping

centre, Spreydon Library and the

playground at Barrington Park.

Said Potter: “For pedestrians,

it’s always been really problematic

for people who are trying to get

across the road to the library

knowing that people have got

right-hand turns and left-hand

turns and they’re concentrating

on their turns rather than people

who may be walking.”

Work to remove the turn has

been delayed multiple times,

causing frustration for the community

board.

The project was anticipated to

start early this year and it was

originally hoped it would be

completed by May last year.

Potter said Spreydon residents

have been vocal about the

need for the right turn to be

removed for some time and they

will be relieved this will finally

happen.

“The Spreydon neighbourhood

network has been active on this

issue for at least four years.

“There’s an older community

around the Spreydon Library

and I think that they’ll be

very pleased about this,” she

said.

She said more will need to

be done to improve safety for

pedestrians and motorists near

the right is removed and the

community board will discuss

this.

Bumper to Bumper repairs

I am a Christchurch based, self-taught artist painting semi-abstract

landscapes that are earthy and textural. My paintings are inspired

by New Zealand landscape, particularly Central Otago, Mackenzie

Country and Canterbury.

My works are descriptive of landforms shaped by both natural

forces and man. Weathering, erosion and human activity lead to an

ever-changing terrain.

There is often a touch of both flora and water in my paintings that

allude to the idea of the land sustaining life.

The paintings have layers of colour and texture through

which I chisel, scrape, eliminate, add back and interact

with the painting to reveal the essence of a landscape.

Pupils tackle road safety

• By Matt Slaughter

ADDINGTON SCHOOL pupils

Jacob Wilkins-Mclay and Tessa

Cook will take matters into their

own hands to try and improve

pedestrian safety on Brougham St.

Since late last year, the school’s

board of trustees has been in

contact with the New Zealand

Transport Agency and city

council asking for ‘school’ signage

to be installed in the area

where pupils cross Brougham St,

in a bid to encourage motorists

to drive safer.

But board of trustees chairwoman

Jo Robertson said this

has not happened.

A city council spokeswoman

said Brougham St isn’t a council

road and referred questions

about it to NZTA. However, it

did not respond to questions

before publication.

Jacob and Tessa, who are

in year 6, will meet with

Wigram MP Megan Woods

and the Spreydon-Cashmere

Community Board in September

to ask for pedestrian safety

measures to be improved near

the school.

One of the school’s volunteers

has been working with the pupils

to research pedestrian safety issues

along Brougham St and help

them prepare for the meeting.

The speed limit along

Brougham St is 60km/h and

large trucks use it often.

Jacob said measures he wants

to raise as options at the meeting

include the installation of more

traffic islands.

Said Jacob: “I think this is a

good thing that should be done

because it’s very dangerous and

kids have been hurt there, so it

needs to be better.

Tessa said one of her friends

was hit by a car when crossing

Brougham St to get to school

when a motorist ran a red

light.

She wants more to be done

to encourage motorists to stop

at the traffic lights near the

Brougham St entrance.

“People should just, instead of

rushing over the robot [traffic

lights], just stop at it because it

was put there for a reason and it

isn’t just there for show,” Tessa

said.

Product to reduce plastic waste

• By Bea Gooding

AS MILLIONS of plastic bottles

make their way into landfills and

natural environments, six young

entrepreneurs have come up with

a bubbly way to tackle the issue.

The year 13 young enterprise

students at Villa Maria College

will soon release Eliminate – an

effervescent disinfectant tablet

for water bottles in a bid to encourage

families to reduce their

single-use plastic waste.

Charlotte Restieaux, of

Halswell, said the project, with

Hannah Shallcrass, Kaitlin

Willetts, Ella McHerron, of

Beckenham, and Ella Dolan, was

aimed at “busy people” who often

reached for single-use bottles

instead of cleaning the one they

already had.

“We realised a lot of us are

busy and we don’t often have

enough time to properly clean

our drink bottles,” she said.

“We recognised the issue of

single-use bottles and how convenient

it was to chuck it out and

get another one.”

She said the process was simple

– by placing the tablet in a bottle

with water, which will “fizz” and

disinfect the inside, followed by

rinsing.

The homemade tablets

comprised of common bacteriakilling

cleaning agents including

hydrogen peroxide and baking

soda which will also be suitable

for reusable bottles.

Charlotte and her team believed

it will provide a convenient

way to clean on-the-go, reducing

the chances of purchasing a new

bottle.

Even though plastic bottles

could be recycled, at most, only

30 per cent of which was eventually

recycled in New Zealand.

With a portion of waste winding

up in waterways and beaches,

the group were committed to

donating 10 per cent of profits to

the Sustainable Coastlines charity.

Said Charlotte: “A lot of

that our mission aligns with

theirs.”

The project was part of the nationwide

Lion Foundation Young

Enterprise Scheme, which the

group took part in through the

school’s business studies class.

“We want to make people

aware of the amount of plastics

going into our world and about

the major problems climate

Wildlife to benefit from

glass clean-up in river

GLASS THOUGHT to have

been released from a waterside

walkway since the Canterbury

earthquakes could pose a threat

to recreational water users

and bird life, Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust manager

Tanya Jenkins says.

Volunteers have removed

many kilograms of glass from

alongside the lower Heathcote/

Opawaho River but significant

deposits of the often small, but

still-sharp, rubbish remain just

below the surface, she said.

The glass appeared to have

come from under a riverside

path. The issue had been raised

with trust board members and

the next step was to talk with the

city council, she said.

“It is littered with tiny, little

pieces of glass. There is a lot in

an area that is used by families

and children, it could be a safety

issue, and birds can be easily

cut.”

Another two big buckets of

glass, four bags of rubbish and

small pieces of plastic, were collected

from the area this month

by volunteers from neighbouring

Ferrymead business Chiptech.

The business has adopted a

100m stretch of the river as part

of the trust’s drive to encourage

nearby businesses to regularly

tend to the waterways that discharge

into the Avon-Heathcote

estuary.

Chiptech product manager

Abby Moore said the team

of eight was surprised at the

“phenomenal” amount of

glass found beside such a small

section of river just above the

bridge.

The worth of their work hit

home when Jenkins described

how a hector’s dolphin died

nearby after a plastic bottle top

got stuck in its blow hole, and

how shags struggled to dive and

feed after ingesting polystyrene,

she said.

Chiptech staff would continue

to clean the stretch of riverside

once a month, she said.

Jenkins said Ferrymead

Mitre10 staff adoped the nearby

Charlesworth Wetland reserve a

few years ago, which had “made a

tremendous difference.”

The trust was keen to hear

from other businesses interested

in adopting a section of

waterway. Jenkins will help with

their first clean-up, and provide

the equipment needed.

for selling our home. He’s not just a face on a bus. His communication throughout

our campaign was excellent, as was his honest and professional advice. We were in

safe hands from the moment we signed him as our agent, right through to handing

Auction day was fantastic and it was great to see him and the auction team work.

Selwyn House - Where Girls Thrive

Selwyn House is an all girls’ school for

Years 1 to 8, with a focus on developing

inquiring and empathetic minds and

building strong knowledge foundations so

that our students will face the future with

the skills and confidence to be empowered

global citizens.

We prepare our students for the

challenges and opportunities they will

encounter using the latest technological

tools within a creative and nurturing

environment. With access to the best

modern facilities and outstanding teachers,

our students learn to think creatively, work

collaboratively and to approach each new

challenge with a can-do attitude. They are

problem-solvers and powerful thinkers -

attributes that are needed and valued in the

future workforce.

A key ingredient of the education at

Selwyn House School is the International

Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme

(PYP), which is recognised globally as

a future-focused curriculum based on

intercultural understanding and respect.

The PYP focus is on the total growth

of the developing child, encompassing

intellectual, social, physical, emotional,

spiritual and cultural needs. We use

structured, purposeful inquiry as the

vehicle for learning, and our goal is to

develop an understanding in our students

that they can make a difference to their

world.

Selwyn House School has a culture of

academic achievement and consequently

our students perform significantly higher

than the international student cohort.

Learning in the core subjects of English,

Maths and Science is complemented by the

range of specialist subjects we

offer, including Mechatronics,

Robotics, Artificial Intelligence,

Performing Arts, Music, Physical

Education, Visual Art

and Spanish - each

taught by dedicated

specialist teachers

who are able to impart

their knowledge

and passion to our

students.

Small class sizes

ensure learning is

personalised and

teachers are able to build strong

connections with each child and

provide clear learning strategies

so that students are enabled to take control

of their learning, self-regulate, and develop

self-efficacy.

Choose Selwyn House to give your

daughter the education which will allow

her leadership and personal strengths to

blossom, and allow us to help her become a

confident and informed individual, eager to

take her part in the world.

Be Our Guest

At Selwyn House we are passionate

about sharing what makes this school

stand out from the crowd. Discover our

future-focused learning environment

FOCUS ON HEALTH

1 in 2 people

deficient in B12

Emerging research has shown as many as 50% of older adults and

as many as 25% of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

SOUTHERN VIEW

Scientists at Rush University Medical

Center found those most deficient

in vitamin B12 to have the smallest

brain mass and the lowest scores on

tests measuring short-term memory,

concentration and brain performance.

Another study showed that older people

with higher levels of B12 in their blood

have bigger, healthier brains and score

higher on cognitive tests than those with

lower levels. Yet another recent landmark

study showed that B12 supplementation

slows the accelerated rate of brain

shrinkage and declining cognitive

function. B12 is essential for energy

production, cell health, regulation of

mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and

repair, and prevention of homocysteine

a serious cardiovascular risk factor

that is known to cause damage and

plaque in the blood vessels. It can also

increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard

researchers found

a 34% decrease

risk of vision

loss in a study

of participants

aged 40+ who

supplemented with

B12. Another study

linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12

appears to be our body’s ability to absorb

it declining with age as the digestive

system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux

medication and other drugs further

reduce B12 absorption. The good news

is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin

sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the

mouth and thru bypassing the digestive

tract have been shown to effectively raise

B12 levels in the body.

Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: 388-5757 We are

always happy to help!

IS YOUR BRAIN SHRINKING?

Brain fog, forgetful, feeling old, low energy,

mood swings, difficulty sleeping, pins & needles,

numbness in legs

Up to 1 in 2 people may have a shrinking

brain due to a lack of vitamin B12.

Supplementation of methylcobalamin B12

has been shown to reduce the rate of

brain shrinkage & support memory & brain

function. B12 is also known to protect against

homocysteine a serious cardiovascular risk

factor that can also damage the hearing,

eyesight & affect the mood. B12 is essential

for energy, cell health & nerve function.

• Memory & Brain Performance

• Helps protect brain from

shrinking

• Energy & Recovery

They are awesome birds

to observe while they stand

patiently.

Without moving as

much as a feather, they

wait for prey to be within

sight to then at lightning

lizard or frog.

Lizards and frogs are

more common around the

estuary than most people

are aware of.

on the lead when walking

near the estuary as to not

disturb them while feeding
