Student drivers in police spotlight

CLAMPDOWN: Police will be monitoring student drivers near schools in the district as part of a campaign on driver

licence conditions.

• By Devon Bolger

YOUNG DRIVERS who

are flouting their driver licence

conditions will be in the police

spotlight starting this week.

A new campaign is being

launched which will focus on

students driving near schools in

the district.

Senior Constable Scott

Mclachlan said the aim is to

stop drivers who are breaching

the conditions of their licences.

“The learner and restricted

licences have certain

restrictions around carrying

passengers and the times they

can drive and that sort of thing.

Boozed

former

Crusaders

staffer

crashes

into bridge

• By Barry Clarke

A FORMER Crusaders staff

member, more than three times

over the drink-driving limit,

crashed into a Tai Tapu bridge

– the day before he was due

to return the work car to the

franchise.

The motorist, who had lost

his job in a restructure just days

before the crash, miraculously

walked away unhurt.

He recorded a breath alcohol

reading of 1068mcg/l, more than

three times the legal limit of

250mcg/l.

The Crusaders vehicle was written

off and $6000 damage was

caused to the bridge.

It is likely he will face a bill for

both, as well as a potential lengthy

suspension from driving.

The man had been drinking in

Lincoln after watching a rugby

match earlier in the day. The crash

happened on Sunday, July 27,

about 1am.

JASON PIETZNER reached

weeks ago (see pages 16-17).

Pietzner is a personable

character who has been a

much needed spare part

player for the Lincoln

as it battles a string of

injuries.

That has worked in his

favour in getting to the

300 game mark. You have

to applaud him for his

to his wife Nicole, a personal

Sporting success is in the

family genes too. Pietzner’s

And brother Gareth, who

is also closing in on 300

• By Devon Bolger

FINANCIAL hardship brought

on by Covid-19 is one of the

reasons more than $3.4 million

in rates have yet to be paid.

A total of $3,457,199 is still

outstanding which represents

3.94 per cent of the total rates.

This is

compared to

the 2018/2019

financial year

which had

$2,616,986 or

3.38 per cent

still to be paid.

Craig Moody

Said district

council accounting

manager Craig Moody:

“The council does think it

[financial hardship] could be a

factor. There were approximately

40 ratepayers who have opted

for the rates payment extension

which amounted to around

$50,000.”

Under the district council’s

economic recovery package, payments

for the 2019/20 financial

year can be extended until June

next year for ratepayers who

enter into a direct debit payment

plan.

In a report to the audit and

risk sub-committee, Moody

said the outstanding rates at

the end of the last financial year

increased from the same period

last year.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has

had a flow-on effect on the national

and local economies and

has reflected in job losses.

“This has had a negative

impact on the council’s ability to

maintain a continuing decrease

in outstanding debtors.”

He said there are several factors

contributing to the higher

level of outstanding rates for the

2019/20 financial year.

This includes the due date for

payment being changed in the

2018/19 financial year to two

weeks later than the previous

year.

“This change has led to a timing

difference in the collection

of rates with the due date being

closer to June 30, a higher balance

of rates is outstanding at

the end of the financial year.’’

OUTSTANDING:

3.94 per cent of

the rates due in

the last financial

year have not

been paid. Rates

help to fund major

projects such as

the Health Hub in

Rolleston.

District council staff have

also not been as active in debt

management during and post

lockdown, Moody said.

“Rates arrears is a risk area

that we are monitoring closely.

The risk to council is that ratepayers

will get into arrears and

struggle to make the increased

payments required to clear their

accounts.”

The district council has

the ability to recover the debt

through a mortgage or by a LIM

Increased police presence around schools

• From page 1

“We want to stop and educate

them on the risks that they

are creating. It’s not just from

the enforcement side in terms

of fines and demerit points

but there are further increased

risks if they’re involved in a

crash or may not be covered by

High schools in the district are

in support of the campaign.

Ellesmere College principal

Ronan Bass said police had been

in touch about the campaign.

“I think it is a good idea, I

think education in all its

many varied forms is a great

police’s commitment to

Initiative to grow

SUMMER CONCERT

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

male participation in leadership

• By Devon Bolger

YOUNG MEN in the district

will get the chance to meet

double-amputee mountaineer

Mark Inglis in a bid to improve

their confidence.

The Building Awesome Young

Men initiative was started by

Lincoln High School and offers

a series of events throughout the

year which young men can take

part in.

Other schools across the district

are participating, which includes

Lincoln Primary, Ararira

Springs, Prebbleton, Ladbrooks

and Springston schools.

One of the events planned for

the initiative is the Big Breakfast

with Mark Inglis on August 17.

It is a chance for young men

and their families to have a

cooked breakfast and listen to

guest Inglis, the only double

amputee to climb Everest, talk

about his life.

Teacher Kerri Loughhead said

they came up with the idea by

basing it off something similar

being done at a school in the

North Island.

“Kylie Horgan and I went and

Ben Hooper and teacher Kerri Loughhead launching the

Building Awesome Young Men initiative last week. ​

met with Rangiora High School

about their leadership structure.

We bounced ideas about how we

can get more males involved.

“We were told there is a school

up north who is doing something

similar to this initiative so

we went and designed it to how

we thought it would work best

for our students.”

Loughhead said they are seeing

a decline in male participation

in leadership roles at the

school.

“They are still wanting to be

leaders but it depends where

they are leaders. We still have

students who aren’t necessarily

interested in the positions we

want to see them putting their

hand up for.

“They are still leaders in their

own sports and things like that

but we are just trying to show

them they can be confident

doing that within our school

environment as well.”

She said they are struggling to

get as many year 7 and 8 students

involved as they would like and

encourage anyone who would like

to participate to come forward.

A range of other events are

planned this year under the

initiative including the Dress for

Success event.

Two young men will win a

day with comedian Leigh Hart

where they will be fitted into a

suit sponsored by Sergios, then

visit Shaka Bros for some lunch

and then to Benny’s Barber shop

where the owner, Ben Scott, will

give them tips and tricks on how

to present themselves.

Deputy head student Ben

Hooper said: “The building awesome

young men campaign has

been introduced to bring more

opportunities and leadership

experiences to the young men in

our community.”

He said they are grateful to

have support from The Laboratory,

When he opened the

“The man was trying to

Crusaders chief executive

Colin Mansbridge said

he was limited in what he

could say as it is a private,

employment-related matter

involving a “now former”

Crusaders employee.

He would not say if

the former employee

would be liable for the

vehicle.

Asked if he was on

Crusaders-related

business on the

weekend of the crash,

Mr Mansbridge said:

“Absolutely not.”

“It goes without saying

that the Crusaders do not

condone driving under the

influence, irrespective of

whether someone is in a

company vehicle or not. We

are unable to comment further

on the specific details

relating to this incident.”

Police would not discuss

the driver but said he was

“incredibly lucky” he didn’t

kill himself or an innocent

party.

“He was incredibly

remorseful and understood

the consequences of what

he had done,” said Senior

Constable Andy

Williamson, who

attended the crash.

As a result of

the crash, Williamson

had been

invited to give a

talk to Lincoln

Club members.

The drink-driver had been

watching a game at Lincoln.

It is understood he is

not a member of the club.

example, or work there,

would not be able to get in

in July.

School programme to

end tall poppy syndrome

A PILOT programme aiming

to end tall poppy syndrome

that first launched at Rolleston

School is proving successful.

The E Tu Tangata programme

was created by 24/7 youth work

and started last month.

Rolleston

School principal

Simon

Moriarty said

it has had a

massive impact

on the school

so far.

​ ​Simon

Moriarty

“For us, we

are really trying

to establish

an E Tu Tangata mindset. It is

how we want our students, staff

and community to see themselves

and others. That’s opened

a lot of doors for us.

“It is about our students seeing

the value they have within

themselves, through their skills,

through their talents. It is shown

in the school in small acts of

kindness through to looking at

organisations or individuals that

are in need.”

The three values of the

programme are: You have value,

we succeed together and others

matter.

Moriarty said an example of

how the programme is working

in the school is through its

student leaders.

“We have 15 student leaders

this year and they have been

divided into three groups, one is

driving ‘you have value’ and is

looking at how we can celebrate

the success of students. Our

second group is looking at

‘we succeed together’ and

is organising different sport

“The third group is leading

for ways that we can be present

be through fundraising or giving

About 50 schools across the

country have signed up for the

E Tu Tangata programme since

it was launched.

The gardens will be judged

on basic design principals such

Selwyn Huts

I don’t think the hut owners

should pay for the water or sewer.

I’m assuming they have paid

rates for these huts for many

years.

Why is it councils are trying to

get rid of huts and baches saying

because of environmental issues?

Have they worked out how

much they will lose in rates each

year? And who will have to pay

more if they get rid of more huts

and baches? Are the Rakaia Huts

next to go?

are saying the sea levels are

Novice takes big photo prize

ROLLESTON resident Jaymie

Challis’s photo of her brother

Trent fishing with her three-yearold

son Nixon will be used as

the image for this year’s fishing

licence.

The photograph was one of

four monthly winners that went

to a public vote to decide which

would win the Fish and Game

photo competition.

Winning by a margin of 481

votes, Challis said she was over

the moon at scooping first place.

She has only started taking

photos a year ago and has the

goal of becoming a professional

photographer in the future.

The photo was taken during

a family holiday to Central

Otago late last year and they had

decided to have a day out fishing

at the popular fishing spot of

Butchers Dam about 10min from

Alexandra.

“The guys were out enjoying

themselves and everything just

lined up, and with a spectacular

backdrop it made for a great

photo,” Challis said.

Award-winning news photographer

Peter Meecham, who was

one of three judges that decided

the monthly winners, said “a really

beautiful shot, that all three

judges said we would have been

proud to have taken ourselves.”

As well as her image being

son Nixon at Butchers

Dam in Central Otago. ​

used for the 2020/21 fishing

licence, Challis receives $2000

from Kilwell Sports.

A total of 276 photos were considered

by a judging panel over

four months.

Outdoor wholesaler Kilwell

Sports sponsored the competition

offering $4000 in prizes

making it one of the biggest

photo competitions in New Zealand

for prize money.

Challis was also presented with

the David Hallett Trophy for the

Fish & Game NZ licence photo

competition.

Hallett, an internationally

renowned and award-winning

news and wildlife photographer,

was one of the first photographers

for Fish & Game magazine and

passed away unexpectedly in 2016.

event

A SECOND event for residents to

meet the district’s candidates has

been planned for 10 days before

the general election.

The event will be held by the

Lincoln Rotary Club and will take

place on September 9.

Organiser Pat Nicholas said:

“This is the third time that Lincoln

Rotary have organised this event,

and being so close to the election it

will be a lively meeting as the five

candidates that have so far agreed

to come along state their positions

on the hot political topics.”

Each candidate will be given a

5min time slot to let the members of

the public know where they stand

on issues in the district.

There will then be a further

5min of questions from the public

directed to the candidate.

There are five candidates currently

confirmed to attend.

They are Act’s Stuart Armstrong,

Abe O’Donnell (Green), Reuben

Davidson (Labour), Nicola Grigg

(National) and Bronnie Lyell (New

Conservative Party).

• Meet the candidates will be

Celebrate Daffodil Day

ORGANISATIONS and

businesses in the district are

being asked to help celebrate

Daffodil Day by decorating their

facilities in yellow.

Cancer Society Selwyn Centre

co-ordinator Jackie Claridge

said she has been blown away by

the response to her Paint Selwyn

Yellow campaign.

“It would be fantastic to get

our whole area behind such

an important cause, every day

across New Zealand 65 kiwis are

diagnosed with cancer.

“We hope businesses and

organisations in Rolleston,

Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln,

will come on board to not only

raise funds, but raise awareness

of the Cancer Society and the

service we provide to Kiwis in

our communities.”

The Cancer Society will

provide a small start-up pack of

Daffodil Day-themed items but

they encourage each business or

organisation to add their flair.

“Decorate their workplaces,

dress their staff, colour their

windows, all to celebrate and

raise awareness of the 30 th

anniversary of Daffodil Day,”

Claridge said.

The winning entrant in each

township will receive a trophy.

BACKYARD CRITTERS

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found

in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims

to raise public awareness of biodiversity, the

variety of living things around us. Check out the full list of

invertebrates found at www.inaturalist.org/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Long-legged spider

doesn’t build webs

SIDYMELLA IS a genus of

square-ended crab spiders found

in Brazil, Australia, Uruguay,

Colombia, Argentina and New

Zealand.

They have a

characteristic

square-ended

abdomen and long

front legs. They are

not web-builders

and instead use

their front legs to

grab prey before

delivering a bite.

Sidymella

angulata found in

my garden is one

of at least four endemic species

found in New Zealand.

This species is about 4-8mm

in length and is quite variable

in colour, ranging from cream

to red-brown, to blend with

surroundings. Even if they

don’t make webs, they still use a

dragline as they move around.

If disturbed, they drop to the

ground staying motionless with

their legs wrapped around their

SELWYN TIMES

bodies until it is safe to move

again.

THis species is common

throughout much of New

Zealand.

Males are much

smaller than

females. Soon after

mating the female

crawls under a dead

leaf and lays down a

sheet of silk.

She then deposits

an egg mass and

covers it with more

silk. The mother

guards the egg sac

for the early stages

of incubation.

THere are also two Australian

species here and both are likely to

have dispersed naturally to New

Zealand by ballooning (floating

on strands of webs).

Sidymella longipes is

particularly long-legged and is

found in the northern North

Island and Sidymella trapezia

is known from Christchurch

northwards.

SELWYN TIMES

Jason Pieztner

Rugby boots and safety boots

Veteran half-back Jason

Pietzner, 39, played

his 300th division one

match for Lincoln last

month. Matt Slaughter

spoke to him about his

career

What have been your most

memorable moments playing

for Lincoln?

I think all championships are

memorable. We had a couple

that probably stand out. We had

a combined final at Waihora in

2014 and that stood out because

we had been runners up and

semi-finalists the previous sort

three or four years without going

the full distance, so that one

there, it was almost a relief that

we’d won that game.

We had a run through the late

2000s into the early teens with

the Murray Cooper [Memorial]

Shield, which is the shield you

play for at home against other

Ellesmere sides. So, we had that

for 10 years, which basically

meant we were unbeaten at home

for 10 years against other Ellesmere

sides in round-robin play.

Who are some of the best

players you have played against

or with?

I’ve played with All Black Joe

Moody, obviously, at Lincoln. I

played with Joe at the club for

a number years before he went

further up the chain of representative

levels.

I would have played against,

probably earlier in the days, the

likes of Scott Hamilton. He was a

Crusader, obviously.

We played Sonny Bill Williams

once, that was great. That was

back for Canterbury Country. It

might have been his first game

of rugby union way back, that

might have been in 2006 or 2007,

or maybe later. I think I might

have been on the end of a fend at

one stage, but there was a great

photo of some of the boys, a

couple of the country boys who

lifted him up in a tackle and basically

got him up-ended, so that

BOOTS OFF: Jason Pietzner pictured in his job as national

sales manager for Safety & Apparel in Islington.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN ​

was their claim to fame. That was

Scott McIlroy out of Darfield, he

got him in a good tackle.

What are some of the best

team performances you have

been a part of?

Back in 2011, I think we got

on a bit of a run in the combined

competition. We mucked our

way through the round-robin but

in the quarter-finals, semi-finals

and finals we got a bit of a roll on

and we ended up playing the final

at home against Methven and

pretty much steamrolled them.

Probably a memorable year

was back in 2015. We won the

competition in 2014, we had a lot

of player turnover that summer.

Guys finishing or moving on, or

whatever it might have been.

Come pre-season the next

year, the guys were only getting

four or five guys turning up to

training, so it was almost a call

to arms. A lot of the older players

who had been retired for maybe

three of four years all put their

hand up to come back to play.

So, we had guys who hadn’t

played for three or four years

come back and play senior rugby

and kind of, in a way, we saved

the side from going to relegation

or not putting a team together.

That was a cool year because

we were a bunch of old guys

who were probably unfit, hadn’t

played for a long time. We sort

of battled our way through it

and we held onto that [Murray

Cooper Memorial Shield] that

year. By all means, we should

have been beaten probably two

or three times.

But it was just a good year

BOOTS ON: Pietzner dots down for Lincoln against Waihora.

PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

based around guys that knew

how to play a bit of rugby and we

just played to our strengths and

I look back and think that if we

didn’t have a team that year, it

would have taken probably three

or four years to get a div one side

back.

What’s your secret for how

you have been able to keep

playing rugby at division one

level for so long?

I’m lucky enough that my wife

(Nicole) is a personal trainer.

Having someone who has personal

training experience and a

qualified nutritionist probably

helps a fair way for the diet and

motivation to keep yourself fit.

She’s not too shy in telling

me if I’ve let myself go a little

bit or haven’t been doing things

so that always keeps me on my

toes. And I guess I always have

reasonably high levels of expectations

around fitness. I always

wanted to make sure, if I was in

a team, I was putting my best on

the field at all times.

As I’ve got older, I’ve sort of

been a leader within teams. You

kind of want to be at the forefront

of your fitness and strength

or performance. You always

want to be at the forefront of it so

younger guys look up and kind

of set the guidelines or set the

expectations.

Tell me about the serious eye

injury in 2018 which could have

been career ending.

It was a pre-season game, we

were playing Kaiapoi and it was

literally the last play of the game.

We could have just kicked the

ball out and finished it but I said

to the boys we should probably

run it and have one last play at it.

Long story short, we kicked it

up the field, chased through and

I went to tackle their fullback

and as he went into the tackle, he

put a fend out and unfortunately

with the timing, one of his

fingers just went straight into

my left eye and in and out. Out

of that, I left my eye for a couple

of weeks and it wasn’t really

for 300 game Lincoln veteran

getting any better and something

wasn’t quite right. I went and

saw the local doctor here, and

out of that, straight into pretty

much eye surgery. I had a, not a

detached retina, but a torn retina.

They had basically two surgeries

to make sure it fitted back in

alright and I could continue

using the eye, I guess.

How soon were you able to

return to rugby after the injury?

It was a full year later.

What has kept you playing

rugby season after season?

I guess it’s a real passion for

the club itself. I’d hate to think

that I’ve let someone down by

not being available or not helping

out when required, I guess would

probably the main reason why.

I still enjoy playing rugby, even

at an older age. I still enjoy the

physicality and the contact and

that part of it.

I always feel like I’ve got

something to add and I think

until I don’t have anything else

to add or I can’t add any value,

yeah, I probably will put my hand

up as required.

What has kept you playing for

Lincoln?

I think certainly friendships.

I’ve created a lot of long-standing

friendships in rugby, and not just

at Lincoln, but representative

Ellesmere rugby as well. I guess

you tend to hang out with people

that are like-minded.

We create a winning culture

and, being a competitive person,

I play to win and we’ve been a

pretty successful team over the

last couple of decades. So that

was probably another thing

that’s probably brought us all

together, which has kept us

coming back, is that the fact that

we were a pretty good team in

that era.

Are there any rugby players

whose game you looked up to?

I always liked Todd Blackadder,

just because he was a battler.

From a natural ability sort of

thing, he had to really work hard

week in, week out, I guess, on

his own game to perform at the

highest level and he got to the

highest level of captaining

the All Blacks.

What is it like playing against

your brother Gareth, who plays

for Waihora?

He’s up to about 286 games

for Waihora, he’s played a lot of

rugby too. I guess with Gareth,

we’ve played a lot of Ellesmere

rugby as well. We’ve played a lot

of representative Ellesmere [for]

Canterbury Country together,

so there’s a lot of mutual respect.

Even though it was a pretty fierce

rivalry in the days, we had to

come out of it as brothers as well,

I guess, we didn’t have much

choice in that.

Neither of us got caught up in

like a brother on brother rivalry

at games. We’d just turn up

and play and play hard and play

reasonably fair. We’d always try

and get one up on each other,

whether it be a late tackle or

maybe a sneaky ruck on the

ground, just something to have a

little bit of bragging rights at the

end of the day.

What are your best memories

of celebrations after winning

competitions or big games?

Most of them we’ve ended up

at the clubrooms. You work your

way down to the pub and then

gather back at the clubrooms the

next day. The Sunday session

would be the more memorable

part and I

think the more fun part because,

kind of the pressure, off and

you’ve had a chance to drink it

up and drink away that night

and the next day you sort of get

together again and you sort of

bring stories up.

The Sunday sessions are

probably the most fun part.

Generally, that was a fancy dress

or something along those lines.

Tell me about your family and

how supportive they have been

of your rugby over the years?

Very supportive. I don’t think

you can do it without a bit of

support. I’ve spent a lot of time

away from family on Saturdays

or during the weeks too, trainingwise

on those Tuesday and

Thursday nights.

I’ve got two young girls now,

Eva has just turned one and Elyse

is three.

And then, Chloe, she’s my

stepdaughter, she’s 15.

To have them there [at games]

MEARES WILLIAMS

LAWYERS

is quite nice, it changes from

being all about yourself. To have

your family there as well, you

share the moment, share the

experience.

My mother Christine Pietzner

[maiden name Cottrell] was a

Silver Fern netballer and my

uncle Wayne Cottrell was an

All Black, so we’ve got a bit of

sporting in our genes.

What do you do for a job?

Getting creative

for the environment

A crafty tunnel and a short film festival, supported by the Council’s Creative Community Fund,

are helping bring a fun twist to raising awareness about environmental issues.

Lincoln Envirotown’s annual short film competition and KidsFest’s craft and science day aim to

bring the Selwyn community together, while promoting environmental action.

This year’s KidsFest event in July encouraged kids to ‘explore our wetlands’ through science

experiments and crafts – from shoe box dioramas to dragonfly pegs made from recycled

materials from the Creative Junk store.

Each year, Lincoln High School Sustainability Council students organise the theme and

activities, decorate a themed tunnel and help the children with crafts and science on the day.

Lincoln Envirotown Project Manager Dave Fitzjohn said it was impressive how quickly the

students planned the event after lockdown halted meetings.

“This year the high school students were really good because there was a very short time to get

together and work stuff out – they did really well.”

This year’s event was amazing with over 90 participants and great helpers, he says, including

international students from Darfield High School assisting with mask making, colouring and

supervising the tunnel.

In September, Lincoln Envirotown will host their Environmental Short Film Competition awards

at the Lincoln Event Centre where people can watch the entries.

The competition is open to people of all ages and abilities with money and environmental prizes

to be won.

The awards are like the Oscars, but for environmental awareness, Dave says; something he is

very passionate about.

“If you’re going to have a job in retirement, I guess I’ve got the perfect one. I can’t really stop

the Amazon forests from burning down, but I can tell kids and people around Selwyn about it.”

Applications for the Creative Community Fund are now open. Visit selwyn.govt.nz/artsfunding to

find out more.

Walls going up on major buildings

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre marked its next big step as the walls began to go up around the new pool

last week.

The new pool hall’s giant 30 metre wooden roof beams will begin to be craned into place this week. The

new pool and its infrastructure has been completed and with the walls going up it is well on track to be

open in March 2021.

The Foster Park Indoor Courts build is also moving to

the next stage, with the courts’ innovative wall cladding

starting to go up this week. The Kingspan panelling

provides both high quality insulation and removes the

need for internal cladding.

Sports equipment for the centre is also on its way,

having set sail from Australia last week.

Once the panelling is in place work will begin on the

roof and internal fit out ahead of the building’s planned

Wall columns installed at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

opening in time for the next winter sports season.

Support for migrants affected by COVID-19

Support is being offered to people on temporary visas who are experiencing hardship due to COVID-19.

The Council, Citizens Advice Bureau and Red Cross are putting on a free evening for migrants to find

about the support available.

It will include information on Manaaki Manuhiri, a programme run by Red Cross and backed by

Immigration New Zealand, to help people on temporary visas meet basic needs.

It will also include information on accommodation, food and transport. Immigration New Zealand will

provide the latest details about visas and immigration information updates.

The workshop will be held on Monday 17 August, 7–8.30pm, at Lincoln Event Centre, 15 Meijer Drive Lincoln.

Certificate of attendance and light refreshments provided. RSVP to Sally on migrant.cabchch@gmail.com

or 022 656 3744, or Amy on amy.penketh@selwyn.govt.nz or 027 250 9031.

Plan ahead – consent numbers

continue to climb

Building consent applications in Selwyn are continuing at record

levels, and the Council is encouraging builders to be patient.

Consent applications have rapidly increased since the end of the

Level-4 lockdown, with 267 consents issued and 1900 inspections

completed in July and over 2,200 inspections expected in August.

The Council is grateful to Napier City Council, Christchurch City

Council, Waimakariri District Council and New Zealand Building

Training and Compliance for providing staff to help. “They’ve been

invaluable in helping us keep up with this demand. It’s been great to

see the collaboration to keep staff employed and support the post-

COVID recovery. We continue to talk to contractors to source more

resources where we can,” Building Manager Vanessa Mitchell says.

She says customers can also help us manage the workload

efficiently by:

· loading documents correctly into AlphaOne

· ensuring sites are ready from 7.30am on the day of inspections -

inspections will still be charged if the site is not ready for a booked

inspection

· using AlphaOne to check the status of consents and inspections

· letting us know early if you need help with your application

· paying for consents when they’re issued, or letting us know if your

project is not going ahead

· ensuring all required documents are uploaded at least the day

before the relevant inspection – this is particularly important for

final inspections to streamline the code compliance process

While it is difficult to know how the pandemic might impact on

consents in the coming months, at the current rates, the Council is on

track for a record year of up to 2600 consents and 20,000 inspections.

Help teach Selwyn kids safe road crossing skills

Drivers can help children learn safe road crossing skills by only stopping for pedestrians at kea

crossings when the stop ‘lollipop’ signs are out.

The Council is reminding people that the only time they must stop for pedestrians at a school road

patrol (kea crossing) is when the stop lollipop signs are out. Otherwise it is a normal section of road

where drivers have right of way.

Stopping for children crossing at other times can be dangerous and can increase the risk of children

being injured, School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler says.

“I often see drivers stopping to let children cross at cross points. Although drivers may think stopping is

courteous, it’s incredibly dangerous. Slow down for sure, as children are unpredictable, but please don’t

wave them across”

“Children may develop the false expectation that all vehicles will stop for them, which increases the risk

of them being injured. Even if you stop, a driver in the other direction may not. It’s unsafe to stop in a

live lane of traffic and you run the risk of being rear-ended or worse, being shunted into the pedestrian

you were trying to help.”

It’s important that pedestrians stop, look and listen before crossing the road at a location with

pedestrian facilities, and just like any other section of road, vehicles have the right of way.

If a vehicle stops on a crossing point, pedestrians should wave them on and

wait for a gap in the traffic to cross safely.

Some handy hints for parents to teach their children:

· Wave traffic on and wait for a safe gap to cross.

· Be bright, be seen on your way to school, ask your school for a safety vest.

· Cross at the kea crossing when it is operating, this goes for parents too,

young people are watching you!

from Selwyn District Council. Email roadsafety@selwyn.govt.nz

BOARDING SCHOOL

“The House” – The perfect

combination of family environment

with educational success

Timaru Girls’ High School has

been supporting young women to be

the best that they can be since 1880.

Wonderful leaders, musicians, artists,

lawyers, scientists, sportswomen,

environmentalists, academics and

so much more, have enjoyed their

secondary school years here at our place.

We are proud of our students. We place

a great emphasis on building positive

relationships and developing a sense of

self-belief and confidence.

“The House” is set in the parklike

grounds of Girls High and boarding

enables girls who do not live in the local

area to benefit from the high-quality

education available at Timaru Girls’

High School. Boarders and their families

bring a special dimension and play a

very important part in the life of the

school.

“All staff maintain a good rapport with

our girls, and balance their individual’s

need for a caring, homely environment

with the systems and processes needed

to manage a home of teenage girls.

Seniors and individual students also play

an important role in the care of their

peers and younger girls”, Director of

Boarding, Elle Bradley says.

We provide a supportive extended

family environment that encourages

young women to experience personal

growth and excellence, and we offer a

unique opportunity to learn life skills

and responsibility in a structured and

caring environment.

BOARDING SCHOOL

St Bede’s College

Boarding School

St Bede’s is a Catholic College for boys

founded by the Society of Mary in 1911

and it is also the only Catholic boarding

school for boys in the South Island.

Catholic, Marist and Bedean

principles and values form the basis of

a holistic education at the College. We

aim not to make the College great but to

ensure every boy has the opportunity to

be great, and we endeavour to develop

young men of Catholic hearts and

minds through the experiences the boys

have in their time here at the College.

St Bede’s is a College for all…a place

where gospel values are practised to

help form principled men; a learning

environment where everyone achieves;

a place that teachers want to come

to because of the strength of the

community; a place also, where boys

can embrace spiritual, sporting, cultural

and community activities, which all

combined shape boys into men. That’s

the priority and that is in our DNA.

Boarding at St Bede’s College is a

tradition that goes back to the 1920s.

Our rich history and tradition provides

an excellent foundation to embrace

the challenges of the modern era and

prepare our boys to be Catholic leaders

wherever life takes them.

Like many other organisations in

Christchurch, our campus has been

broken and tested. The demolition of

the Chapel seriously challenged us. It

was the single most important building

at St Bede’s College, and had symbolised

the heart and soul of the College ever

since the third Rector, Father Gilbert,

converted it from the gymnasium in

1929.

In the last two years, the College has

completed a $16m building project;

stage two of the Gymnasium, a new

Food Technology and Art Block, a

renovated Performing Arts Centre

and significantly, the new Chapel of St

Bede, which have greatly enhanced the

campus facilities.

Boarders at St Bede’s College benefit

from these and other facilities on site,

and a self-development programme

involving a number of different

activities where boys are given

opportunities to learn a variety of skills,

are offered in the evenings as well as

study.

Preference and non-preference

applications are available and

personalised tours of the Boarding

School and the College can take

place on request. We look forward to

introducing you to the St Bede’s College

boarding hostel.

Be part of the Nelson

College boarding family

Nelson College Boarding is known for its

welcoming family environment. This was

highlighted when the COVID Lockdown

occurred. Most of our international students

chose to stay, along with staff, and form a

safe bubble of 80. This included Year 13 kiwi

student Mac Harris, whose parents live in

Japan. When the lockdown happened, Mac

thought about going home, but decided it

was safer to stay. “I wanted to stay in case

things got worse and I couldn’t come back”

Mac said. “Being in lockdown with all the

international students also meant I got to

know everyone really well. They’re pretty

awesome.”

Nelson College is a progressive and

innovative boys’ school. Our learning

environment focuses on ‘inspiring young

men to take their place in the world by

fostering the values of manaakitanga

through quality education’. We take great

pride in nurturing each boy’s individual

interests and potential across all areas

SELWYN TIMES

of academia, sport, arts, culture, and

leadership.

“Our Boarders are at the heart of the

school and we’re incredibly proud of

them,” says Director of Boarding Samme

Hippolite. “We know how formative these

years are, and we want the boys to have

every opportunity to develop their interests.

We also want them to have fun, make

lifelong friendships and create unforgettable

memories within the context of a clear and

safe structure.”

Set alongside the main college campus, the

college’s two boarding houses – Rutherford

and Barnicoat – are impressive heritage

buildings that have recently had major

refurbishments. “Our experienced staff are

committed to creating a strong and caring

community within the boarding fraternity,”

says Mrs Hippolite. “We ensure that our boys

are supported throughout their educational

endeavours, and we also make sure that they

get to experience everything our beautiful

Nelson region offers.

Talk to us about life-changing opportunities

for your son

Nelson College offers the very best in boarding. With a welcoming

family environment, our school has consistently high-level academic,

sporting and leadership programmes.

Come and see us at AgFest West Coast (13/14 November) and

meet Headmaster Richard Dykes and Director of Boarding

Samme Hippolite.

BOARDING SCHOOL

Home away from home at St Margaret’s College

With its warm, caring home-awayfrom-home

atmosphere, boarding at St

Margaret’s College combines a worldclass

education with building strong

relationships and learning lifelong

values.

When school finishes at the end of

each day, the boarding houses come

alive with the sounds of many voices

and laughter and because the boarding

school is an integral part of the school

campus those who chose to can attend

extra circular and after-school activities

without disruption.

The boarding community is at the

heart of St Margaret’s and the culture is

closely aligned with the school’s vision

of a holistic education, embracing the

spiritual and emotional wellbeing of the

girls, as well as their academic growth

and their development in sport and

the arts. St Margaret’s is a place where

girls are believed in and become strong

women of the future and where great

boarding friendships last a lifetime.

The three boarding houses

are arranged in year groups and

structured to the specific needs of each

developmental stage. In Julius House

(Y7-10) the environment is structured

and nurturing for the girls to make

the transition into boarding. Kilburn

House (Y11-12) encourages the girls to

begin personally integrating these skills.

Cranmer House (Y13) allows for more

freedom to help them develop life skills

and become driven, self-managed young

women, all in a monitored setting. These

senior girls thrive as they become the

leaders of the boarding school and the

‘older sisters’ of the younger girls.

The boarding staff take pride in having

the privilege of watching the girls grow

into incredible young women and

treasure the moments they capture with

them. Warm, open relationships develop

over the years as they share the girls’

highs and lows, encourage, celebrate and

nurture as they all journey through life

together.

Margaret’s College, visit www.

Gardening

Don’t put the gumboots away just yet

IT’S THAT time of the year when

gardeners are yearning for spring

– and it’s just around the corner.

In many areas, it’s still very cold

and soils are wet so you may need

to don the gumboots before you

head out to the back yard.

August is an excellent time for

planning your new season garden

and completing your planting of

deciduous ornamental and fruit

trees.

Continue to harvest winter

maturing vegetables and

where the soil is friable (easily

crumbled) and not too wet, sow

seeds of beetroot, carrots, onions,

peas, radish and spinach.

Continue to cultivate soil in

preparation for early spring

planting by chopping up and

digging in any green manure

crops. This will significantly

improve the organic content of

the soil. If you haven’t grown any

green manure crops, then add

in compost and mix well with

existing soil.

If possible, try and raise the

planting areas to 100-120mm

above the existing ground level.

Drainage will be improved and

soils will warmer quicker in

spring if you do this.

Winter flowering annuals will

be at their best and late flowering

annuals such as cineraria are now

beginning to bloom. Continue

last plantings of alyssum,

calendulas, cornflower, larkspur,

lobelia, pansy, snapdragon,

stock, violas and wallflowers.

These flowering annuals are also

perfect for growing in containers

and provide instant colour in

the garden. Start preparing your

summer flower beds as they can

be planted out towards the end of

next month.

It’s cropping time for

many citrus; late mandarins

(clementine), lemons, navel

oranges, grapefruit and limes.

While seminole tangelos look

very attractive on trees, you will

need to be patient as they won’t

be sweet enough for eating until

It’s time to

sharpen the

blades of your

mower so that

your lawn gets

an even cut.

Do the last of

your pruning,

especially roses.

to help maintain plants in a

healthy state.

Complete the pruning of rose

varieties that were very late

dropping their leaves. While

plants are dormant, apply a

copper oxychloride and/or

horticultural oil spray to ‘clean

up’ any overwintering pests or

diseases. The addition of fresh

compost around existing plants

will greatly benefit early spring

growth.

In most parts of New Zealand

there is little grass growth in

August. However, it is not too

far away. Get your mower blades

sharpened and identify any

problem areas in the lawn to be

rectified in spring/early summer.

In wet shady areas, there is often

significant moss growth which

will usually disappear over the

hot dry summer months.

However, you may want to over

sow these areas with fresh law

seed from October onwards.

Continue to plant out

ornamental shrubs and trees.

Site preparation is critical to the

success of these plantings so avoid

areas that are exceptionally wet,

unless you are planting specimens

that specifically grow in these

conditions.

Add compost to all planting

sites and cultivate soil thoroughly

before planting. Allow enough

space between new trees and

shrubs for full development. Be

guided by local plantings in parks,

friends and neighbours gardens

when considering what to plant.

Weather dependant, August

can be an outstanding month

for bulbs in the home garden.

daffodils, hyacinths, jonquil,

lachenalia and muscari, should be

either in bloom or not far away.

A good trick is to mark the best

performing varieties with small

bamboo stakes as you may wish

to lift and divide those once bulbs

are dormant.

Use your outdoor living areas

all year round

• Warm & dry in winter

• UV protection for summer

SELWYN TIMES

Impreza still carries bargain price

FOR AS LONG as there has been

a Subaru Impreza, there’s also been

an affordable way into buying one.

Subaru New Zealand has always

listed a budget model, it started off

around 2006 with a $25k figure for

the mid-size liftback/wagon with

permanently engaged four-wheeldrive

and, yes, a high and low

transfer case.

Of course, over the years, and

with inflation, the Impreza is now

listed at $32,490 for the one and

only Sport model, but that is still

an amazing price for what you get,

Subaru’s problem with this car over

the years is continuation of supply.

It’s certainly the company’s best

kept secret, it is a package that has

stuck with me over the years, and

although I’ve never had the outlay

to buy one I have been responsible

for several sales, and I still see it

as the first choice if I was in the

market for new car.

The Impreza has just undergone

a very mild facelift, it gets a little bit

of extra tech and has had a minor

cosmetic facelift.

Elsewhere it is still the

same versatile model that has

commanded healthy sales. Cars

which have longevity on their side

only get there by being desirable,

and the Impreza over the years has

succeeded against big odds – the

sport utility vehicle market.

Part of what makes the Impreza

desirable is its driveline, even

though the high/low gearing

system has long since gone, it is

still four-wheel-drive, and the

horizontally-opposed engine layout

is, in itself, a point of difference.

Boxer engines have been

Subaru’s design choice since the

Omega/Leone of the 70s. Today,

the company builds both fourcylinder

and six-cylinder flat

engines in varying capacities, and

some with turbochargers, in the

base model Impreza’s case it is a

naturally-aspirated 2-litre unit with

quad camshafts.

It is rated by Subaru with 115kW

(6000rpm) and 196Nm of torque

developed at 4000rpm. While

these figures don’t seem anything

special you have to bear in mind

that boxer engines are honest

and torquey from low down and

that’s what makes them appealing,

they feel strong from beneath the

accelerator pedal. Drive is delivered

through a seven-step continuously

variable transmission.

Subaru have developed this

gearbox to the point where it

doesn’t feel like CVT. It works

much like a traditional torque

converter automatic, and there are

even paddle shifters so that the

driver can manipulate the gearing

for every likely driving situation.

Left to its own engine

management protocols, the

transition of power through the

CVT is smooth, and seamless and

STYLE: The Subaru Impreza has a traditional hatchback

rear.

SUBARU IMPREZA SPORT: Four-wheel-drive and boxer engine is a tempting mix.

power is relatively unimpeded; of

course, there are driver operated

push-button intelligent drive

mechanisms which can alter the

flow of power – intelligent or sport.

Sport mode does tend to keep the

engine unnecessarily busy, while

the intelligent setting works out

the best engine operating pattern

depending on accelerator pressure.

Subaru have also been proactive

in keeping the boxer desirable in

terms of fuel usage. Today, the

2-litre unit is rated with a 6.6-litre

per 100km combined cycle average,

that’s as good as any 2-litre petrol

inline engine and adds desirability

into the equation. I was relatively

gentle with the Impreza during

the time it was in my care, and

it was used mostly in central

city conditions, but with one

lengthy open road journey west to

Hororata.

On the highway, the fuel usage

readouts list at around 5l/100km

with the engine loping over at

just 1600rpm in the tallest part of

the gearing. When I took the car

back to the dealership my average

was showing around 7.4l/100km,

which makes Subaru’s claim quite

realistic.

Even though the Impreza is an

easy car to drive at all speeds, it

punches above its weight when it

comes time to accepting the back

road challenges and the twisty

• Price – Subaru Impreza

• Dimensions – Length,

nature of our high country corners.

Four-wheel-drive adds an element

of extra grip all of the time, not

just on slippery surfaces. With

that comes the benefit of fourcorner

independent suspension,

and with high grade spring and

damper technology the Impreza

feels nimble and agile. There is

little body movement in a corner,

and the suspension does a quality

job of balancing ride comfort with

the firming needed to control

gravitation force.

Directed into a tight corner,

the front steers with direct turnin

and solid feedback at the

steering wheel, grip to the rear

is pronounced as the suspension

can be felt working dealing to any

uneven surface.

The Impreza also gets high grade

Bridgestone Turanza tyres (205/50

x 17in), and while their diameter is

a little on the small side, you don’t

need low profile tyres on this car,

it handles beautifully and is kind

to the occupants in terms of on

comfort.

Those on board also get the

benefit of all the features you’d

expect in a 2020 car. Major

features include keyless entry and

ignition, auto stop-start, multifunction

displays and smartphone

adaptability. All new Subaru’s

sold in this country get the clever

Eyesight technology which is a

camera-based driver assist safety

system which goes a long way to

earning the Impreza a five-star

Australasian New Car Assessment

Program rating.

The Impreza represents amazing

value, and benefits from Subarus

determination to make cars that

are just that little bit different yet

are engineered to capably fill many

roles.

There are few cars in today’s

market that compete with the

concept of Impreza, and they sit

near what you would describe as a

crossover or SUV.

I like traditional sedans and

liftbacks, the Impreza would suit

me fine, I’ve always regretted

not buying one of the entry-level

models, I guess it’s not too late,

but it’s a matter of lining up all the

financial ducks in a row.

From family cars to work trucks and

supercars to fixer-uppers.

No matter what you're looking for, you

can find it all with Drivesouth.

Homeownership: should you

make a will?

If you have just bought your first home or

already own a property, then the answer to

this is yes.

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest

investments you may make during your

lifetime.

It is, therefore, necessary to decide who

will be the benefactor/s of your property

and belongings should you suddenly pass

away. To do this, you need to create a will.

A will states who receives what in the event

of your death.

Anyone over 18

years old can

create a will.

According to the Public Trust, over 50%

of New Zealanders do not have a will.

Young people, aged from 25 to 39 years,

who are financially independent, feature

highly in this area, and yet they are a group

more likely to indulge in adventurous

holidays and take part in risky extreme

sports. Accumulated assets of this age

group might include a bike, car, TV, house,

and furniture, along with a vast range of

electronic and digital gear.

With the arrival of a family, having a

will in place is even more essential and yet,

according to the survey taken in 2014, only

30% of 25-40 year-olds, with children, have

a will in place.

A will not only legally takes care of the

property, and the monetary side of things

but can also state who will take care of

children in the event of an untimely death.

What happens if there is no will

The lack of a will can create problems

over who will benefit from the estate - this

is especially important if there are children,

de facto relationships, children from

previous relationships, family

members with addictions, or

where a business is involved.

Where there is no will, the

estate goes into ‘intestacy’,

which means a court will

appoint an administrator,

who does the same job as

an executor, to manage the

estate. The administrator has

the authority to act on behalf

of the deceased and applies

to the High Court for letters

of administration (power to

administrate the estate).

The Administration Act

1969 provides a code to

be followed that ensures the estate is

administered in order of priority. (Check

Save time and money

Before meeting with your lawyer, and

to help save time and money, decide in

advance how you want to distribute your

will – determine who will receive what.

You can also create a DIY will online,

but if the distribution of your property is

complicated, you may need to contact a

lawyer for additional help.

For your will to be valid and legally

binding it must be signed in front of two

witnesses, who also must sign it. The

witnesses are not in any way responsible for

what is in the will or its execution.

Four steps to creating a will

1. Nominate an executor – the person

who will manage the distribution of your

property.

2. Choose how you want to be buried or

cremated, and how you want your funeral

to be held, i.e. small and private, at a

church, or in a garden. Make sure family or

friends know in advance what you want to

happen, as the reading of the will may not

be before the funeral.

3. Appoint a guardian/s for your

children (if under 18) and your pets.

Discuss this with prospective guardians,

so they are prepared and understand their

responsibility.

4. Decide who will receive what and how

much; this may include money, property,

and personal belongings, as well as selected

charities.

Opening 30th May 2020!

Building blocks to a new home

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also minimise

financial risks. Issues that you may have

to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many power

points there are per room, the type of

windows you are having or which paint

finishes are included.

Questions to ask builders:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit guarantee?

• Is the company a Registered Master

Builder and does it use third-party

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out of

business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who have

just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will have

a less stressful time once the building

process starts.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Building an energy

efficient home

Good sized windows facing north capture heat from the sun.

Modern homes are easier to heat yet

greater energy efficiency can be achieved.

The first step is to ensure there is

opportunity for passive heat from the sun,

achieved by having good sized windows

and positioning the home’s living space

towards the north/north west. This will

lessen the need to turn on the heating to

maintain a comfortable temperature.

Now standard for external windows

and doors, double glazing creates a rigid

air barrier between two panes of glass,

minimising heat loss through the windows.

Where these are retrofitted however, the

existing cavity is unlikely to be square so

packing will be needed to align the window,

resulting in gaps leading to the potential for

heat loss.

Choosing a solid internal door between

the garage and home is a better option than

a cavity slider, as there will be less draughts.

Building paper is the minimum standard

for lining a house though there are higher

specified products like Ecoply and RAB

Board.

Dean McGuigan, Director of Golden

Homes Canterbury says they use RAB

Board on all the homes they build.

This has a polystyrene backing, which

provides a rigid bearing and a thermal and

acoustic break. It creates an air barrier and

separation of heat meaning cold air is kept

out of the home and warm air in (with

the reverse effect in summer). Dean says,

RAB

board

provides

rigidity &

thermal

benefits.

while it may add around $3-4,000 to the

build price, the results are phenomenal

with tremendous power savings.

“Using RAB Board makes the most

difference to retaining heat in a home,” adds

Dean.

High quality CodeMark LED lights also

make a significant difference. These give off

very minimal heat so it is safe to lay pink

batts directly over the top of these. This was

not the case with incandescent and halogen

lights, which became very hot. With low

cost LED lights too, insulation must be cut

150mm away from the light fitting, which

leaves a gap for heat to escape and drafts to

enter the home.

“The heat will find the weakest link and

escape through it,” reminds Dean.

Garages generally have few windows and

are usually sited on the southern/eastern

side of a home so the living area can face

north/northwest. Where a garage is used as

a gym, office, children’s play area or work

room, then the ceiling, walls and door

might be insulated. However, insulation

merely prevents the transference of hot or

cold air so heat will still need to be put in

and a heat pump might be installed for this

purpose.

Dean says while energy proofing your

new home may add a little extra to the

build cost, there are long-term economic

benefits in lower power costs. He invites

those keen to look at ways to make their

new home more energy efficient, to visit

Golden Homes’ The Borough showhome in

Rolleston.

Checklist for selling your home

MAKE SMALL FIXES

Inspect your home with a buyer’s

eyes, and correct the flaws that are

most egregious (if affordable) or

can be relatively easily fixed—from

repairing cracks in the walkways

to repainting dingy walls or oiling

creaky hinges.

SET A PRICE

A real estate agent will give you a

market analysis free of charge or

commitment. Ask a few to get a

broader picture of the market, then

ask to see listings for properties

similar to yours that have sold

in the past six months. Check

out comparable listings yourself

in the real estate section of your

newspaper or on websites. Then

decide whether you want a quick,

easy sale or the highest possible

price.

CLEAN & DECLUTTER

Weed out excess furniture,

knicknacks, and “stuff ”—toss it,

donate it, give it away, sell it at a

yard sale, or put it into storage—so

the house seems more spacious and

buyers can imagine themselves in it.

STAY VIGILIANT ABOUT

MAINTENANCE

From the moment you start

showing your house, keep the lawn

mowed, shrubs trimmed, gardens

weeded, rooms spotless and

clutter-free.

READY YOUR HOME FOR

OPEN DAYS

Hide pocketable valuables,

display fresh flowers or bowls

of fruit, bake a batch of cookies

for the homey smell, open the

drapes, keep pets out of sight.

DECIDE WHETHER TO DO

YOUR OWN BUILDING

INSPECTION

It may save you time, especially

with older homes, to identify—

and potentially solve—problems

your buyer’s inspection will

discover later.

5021m 2 park-like se ting in the sought after Claremont
