POLICING AROUND south

Christchurch high schools has

increased in an effort to make

sure students are obeying the

conditions of their driver licences.

Hillmorton

High School principal

Ann Brokenshire

said its year

11s and 12s have

been told about

this initiative and

it will serve as a

valuable reminder

for students to

follow their driver

licence rules.

Ann

Brokenshire

“If you’ve got young people,

you know, they’ve learnt to

drive, they’re driving, there are

conditions on that. It’s just about

reminding them because they

make those really quick decisions

that can have life-changing consequences,”

she said.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Greg Cottam

said high school students are

often not on their full licences.

PAPER BUSINESS cards may

be a thing of the past thanks to

an innovative group of young

enterprise students.

Businesses can now share

their contact details electronically

by tapping their “STAP

Card” onto the recipient’s

phone, which also produced

links to a website or social

media.

Cashmere High School year

12 students Jayden Rosanowski,

Felix Strahl and Emilia

Dybka recognised the need

for a sustainable option after

learning that six million trees

were cut down each year to

produce business cards.

“We were looking to be

innovative in some way, then

we thought about how [paper]

business cards are a waste of

time and take up too much

space,” said Felix, of St Martins.

“Instead of carrying around

thousands of business cards,

they can now just have one for

each for their employees.”

Compatible with all phones,

each card contained an electronic

chip or QR code that

the students programmed

themselves and worked in a

similar fashion to payWave.

Catherine

Chu

For now, the cards were

made of plastic, but the team

aimed to produce a biodegradable

plastic alternative in the

future.

Felix said the innovation,

which was a first in NZ, would

impact the future of business

and how people operated as it

cut costs, was less time consuming

and had fewer adverse

effects on the environment.

“Eighty-eight per cent of

all business cards are thrown

away within a week,” said

Jayden, of Halswell.

The young entrepreneurs

have received more than 30

orders since their online shop

was launched.

It also caught the interest of

other local business card companies

who have considered

purchasing the cards in bulk.

Said Felix: “People love it,

we’ve received messages from

people who are really happy

with their purchase. We’ve

been told it’s made things a

whole lot easier for them.”

In response to the negative

business cards, they teamed up

with non-profit organisation

One Tree Planted.

For every card sold, $2 was

donated to the organisation

which will go towards the

planting of a new tree at locations

across the globe.

The venture was part of the

Young Enterprise Scheme

which has been rolled out

into schools’ business studies

programmes.

They were hoping to continue

the project next year.

EDUCATION: Pupils make good use of the play and learning spaces at Ngutuawa School, formerly Bamford School.

History reflected in new Ngutuawa School

• By Bea Gooding

IT’S THE beginning of a new

chapter at Bamford Primary

School.

Nearly a decade after the

September 4, 2010, and February

22, 2011, earthquakes caused

irreparable damage to the site’s

foundations, the school has

found a new home – a $6 million

facility now known as Ngutuawa

School.

The school’s new name

represented the history and

culture of the area in which

it was established and was a

reflection of the “exciting”

changes.

Principal Shona Hewlett said

staff and students had now

settled into a modern learning

environment; one that was no

longer “damp” and “cold.”

“The students were very

excited about the new space,

they thought it was beautiful,”

she said.

“Everyone feels really blessed

to be able to come to this new

environment and start fresh.”

Damage to the previous

facility was mostly underground,

such as drainage pipes which

were too costly to fix.

Hewlett said they were lucky

to have been able to rebuild on

the same site unlike many other

schools across the city.

Funded by the Ministry of

Education, construction began

last year which took three years

to plan and design.

The classrooms were now open

plan, with the ability to close

off areas as needed, had better

temperature controls, and a

“fabulous new hall” the school

did not previously have.

The interior was splashed

with soft colours of blue, grey

and teal to promote a “peaceful”

environment, said Hewlett.

Renaming the school to

Ngutuawa – Maori for river

mouth – was an important

aspect of the changes to better

reflect its values and the

significance of the area.

“The school sits right at the

mouth of the Heathcote River

which was a significant food

gathering area for Ngai Tahu, to

source whitebait and eels,” she

said.

“It’s nice to have a name that

is reflective of the environment

that we’re sitting in.”

are the most local of

elected bodies, and closest

to the communities they

represent.

They have delegated authority

The overnight home sleep test

allows a person to sleep in the

comfort of their own bed. No doctor

the home sleep test are assessed

If you think you’re at risk of sleep

This is a great opportunity to see if CPAP is for you and to

feel the benefits in terms of less fatigue, snoring and more

and our pharmacy will offer ongoing support and advice. I’m

A SOMERFIELD toy library

has been experiencing a spike in

membership in spite of a global

pandemic.

The Christchurch South Toy

Library is on a mission to expand

their toy hire service across

the city, providing more families

with a chance to reduce their toy

wastage.

With many children growing

out of their toys at a rapid rate,

new toys lay unused after as

quickly as six months, resulting

in physical and financial waste.

Said librarian Ashleigh Cattermole:

“It’s a good way to reduce

unnecessary spending, parents

don’t have to buy something

that their kids only use for six

months.”

A wide range of children’s

toys, including slides and bikes,

were available for hire over two

weeks and was suitable for newborns

to eight-year-olds.

It was also a simple process

of identifying which toys were

age-appropriate during crucial

stages of development, promoting

physical activity, creativity,

problem-solving and many more

skills.

“Development through play

is important and it expands on

what they’re already learning,”

said Cattermole.

In an age of online shopping

and where people were

conscious about hygiene due to

Covid-19, the library’s membership

rates had soared, with many

families unaware the service had

existed.

“We’ve got the highest membership

that we’ve had,” said

Cattermole.

“Since the lockdown, we’ve

had a lot of members joining up

after spending lots of time with

their children and realising how

important it is to have things to

be entertained [with].”

Toy library membership

meant parents were spending

less money in comparison to

purchasing brand-new, which

also presented a more sustainable

option for families.

The library itself is funded by

the community through fundraising

events and donations

as well as grants from the city

council.

Toys available for hire were

donated to the library from

other families, making sure they

limited their own waste in the

process.

“I can only imagine

the amount of waste [in

Canterbury],” said Cattermole.

“We don’t throw anything out

unless they’re broken beyond

repair. We sell them on if the

toys have seen better days or we

have a grandparent who can also

do repairs.”

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the

Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a

non-profit 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.

Long lives for hungry

oystercatchers

OYSTERCATCHERS are easy to

spot with their black and white

feathers and a bright orange bill

and legs. You may have seen them

busily harvesting the mudflats

– mainly for cockles but also for

crabs and fish.

It has been recorded that this

ever-hungry bird can consume

up to 1kg of cockles per day. Now

that’s a lot of cockles. At high

tide when they cannot feed on

the mudflats they move to nearby

paddocks to feed on worms and

grubs as well.

Once they find a mate, it’s

for life, and records show pairs

which have been together for 20

years. They prefer to nest inland

and move in early spring to

riverbeds and farmland in the

east of the Southern Alps to raise

their chicks. They then return in

large numbers to our estuary in

autumn and winter.

They are long-lived as well, with

banded birds recorded here to be

as old as 27 years.

There are about 112,000 of these

birds in New Zealand but numbers

are declining. So how can we help

these birds thrive? Keep dogs on

the lead when walking near the estuary

as to not disturb them while

feeding or resting.

Do not gather shellfish from the

mudflats, as we need to ensure

large numbers of cockles are

present for the birds.

Gathering also disturbs the

birds from feeding.

Ground moisture barrier

under low sub-floor

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, ground moisture barrier.

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.

While insulation is important, it has been

recognised that it is dampness that is the real

villain in the house. The new Healthy Homes

Standards introduced by the government

effective from the 1st July 2019 now has

a requirement to install ground moisture

barriers, a key element in the armory to fight

moisture in the home.

Timber Floors: An Energy Analysis assessed

the effects of placing Foam Concrete over

damp soil and had this to say: Condensation

on the underside of a timber floor can occur

where the floor is suspended over damp

ground and the inside air temperature falls

close to the crawl space air temperature.

Much energy is required to vaporize moisture

that penetrates the structure. By avoiding

underfloor condensation, foam concrete can

reduce floor heat losses by up to 90%.

• Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd can in most

cases, install a Ground Moisture Barrier

under the suspended wooden floor of your

home, even when there is no crawl space.

Zone Control for your

ducted heat pump

Ducted heat pumps are a highly efficient

way to heat (or cool) your home. The

air from the heat pump is ducted to

several rooms or zones in your house.

Using a zone control system makes your

ducted heat pump even more efficient, by

specifying the amount of heat required

in each area, so not wasting energy to

overheat or overcool any room.

The AirTouch4 zone control system

from Smooth-Air takes ducted heat pump

air zoning to a whole new level of comfort

and energy efficiency.

AirTouch4 - The Ultimate Zone

Control

Have total control of your comfort zone:

AirTouch4 lets everyone enjoy a different

level of conditioned air in the room they

are in.

Save money on the power

bill, without compromising on

comfort, by only running the

heating or cooling where you

need it with Smart Zoning.

Plus with runtime tracking,

energy and airflow management

technology, you can enjoy greater

efficiency and savings from your

family’s ducted heat pump.

The AirTouch4 can

%

also

connect to Google Home and

Amazon Alexa.

Not every home is designed

equal. Not every room is either.

Temperatures can often fluctuate from

one room to the next because of sunlight,

room activity or other factors.

With AirTouch4’s Individual

Temperature Control Technology (ITC),

the AirTouch monitors temperatures

and smartly adjusts airflow as needed

around your home with the aid of multiple

wireless temperature sensors instead of a

single sensor in one location. When some

rooms get too hot or cold, the AirTouch

will adjust airflow to maintain your desired

temperature, without wasting conditioned

air on rooms already comfortable.

Amazing health miracles

from the silkworm

Serrapeptase an enzyme produced in

silkworms may become one of the most

widely used natural health solutions

for its ability to replace the majority of

anti-inflammatory drugs and bypass

operations. It is nature’s answer to pain,

chronic inflammation and clogged

arteries. Enzymes are essential for

life. Constantly working to build and

regenerate the body, they help digest

food, break down toxins and cleanse

the blood, in addition to thousands of

other functions. A lack of enzymes in the

body leads to food intolerances, allergies,

digestive issues, disease and poor health.

Studies show an average 70-year old has

only 20 percent of the enzymes found in

the body of a 20-year old.

Serrapeptase is a natural antiinflammatory,

which can clean, clear and

reduce inflammation while dissolving

non-living tissue including blood clots,

cysts, arterial plaque and mucus. One of

its major benefits is its ability to reduce

pain.

The serrapeptase enzyme was first found

in the intestine of the silkworm in the late

1960’s. The silkworm uses it to dissolve the

hard cocoon, allowing the moth to escape

as well as to digest the tough mulberry

leaves it feeds on. Serrapeptase can now be

produced commercially by a fermentation

process of the microorganism Serriata

E15. It is prescribed by doctors across

Europe and Asia.

Clinical studies over the last 40 years

have shown serrapeptase to have

remarkable benefits in a vast range of

health conditions including; blocked

arteries, cardiovascular, arthritis,

asthma, lung conditions, pain, tumors,

autoimmune disease and many more.

In Germany, Dr. Hans Nieper clinically

researched serrapeptase and found it

could clear blocked arteries and prevent

the need for bypass operations. U.K.

pharmacist Dennis Gore talked on BBC

radio about the dramatic results he has

had with serrapeptase. One case was a

man in his 60’s who had been a heavy

smoker, was wheeled into his pharmacy.

He was breathless due to emphysema

and COPD and could hardly talk. He

was on antibiotics, oxygen and getting

bad infections. Dennis prescribed him

serrapeptase and three weeks later the

man walked into his pharmacy, with no

wheelchair and no breathlessness and said

to Dennis he was no longer on antibiotics,

nor oxygen cylinders and was feeling

great.

Serrapeptase has been shown to be

very safe supplement and according

to researchers can be used with most

medications. However let your doctor

know as medications may need reducing

or stopping as the need for them reduces.

Serrapeptase and more information

is available from the natural health

advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 101 Seaview Road, New

Brighton, Phone: (03) 388-5757.
