Learning about environment

aim of student programme

STUDENTS will get hands-on

lessons this year on how to

minimise their waste due to a

free Learning Through Action

programme run by the city

council.

‘A Waste of Time’ programme

is aimed at year 5 to

13 students and focuses on

educating them about the city’s

recycling processes through a

series of engaging and interactive

activities.

As part of the programme,

which schools can access for

free, students visit three of

EcoCentral’s recycling facilities

– the Eco Sort, Eco Drop and

Eco Shop – to learn what

happens to the material that is

put out for recycling after it is

collected at the kerbside.

A partnership between

EcoCentral and Red Bus means

that in term 1 participating

schools can get free transport to

and from the recycling facilities.

Said city council parks

programmes and partnerships

manager Kate Russell: “We

teach students about how we

use the three Rs – reduce, reuse

and recycle – to manage our

waste stream and we show

them how small changes to

our habits can have a massive

impact on our environment.

Volunteer shortage

has charity

calling for more

contributors

A CHARITY is concerned it

doesn’t have enough volunteers

to continue providing

social services to vulnerable

communities across the region.

Presbyterian Support South

Island is calling for more

volunteers for its Enliven

programme, which supports

older people to stay healthy and

connected.

The charity has supported

Cantabrians for more than a

century, which also supports

children and families through

its Family Works programme.

Presbyterian Support

volunteer co-ordinator Roni

Jordan said 267 volunteers

donated more than 18,000 hours

of their time last year.

While this was a significant

contribution, more is needed, she

said.

“It’s without doubt

Cantabrians are kind and

caring which is why they make

such a significant impact on the

work we do to support older

people.’’

A range of roles needed to

be filled. Mini-van drivers and

assistants were required to

help transport people to day

programmes, serve meals and

refreshments, and to join in on

activities at the programmes

themselves.

Said Jordan: “Our volunteers

are wonderful people who form

part of the Presbyterian Support

‘family’ and they are incredibly

generous in giving their time

and effort to helping our Enliven

members.

“So I would encourage anyone

who has a little spare time to

contact us about becoming a

volunteer.”

Enliven ensures all older

New Zealanders have access

to community-based support,

activities to join in with, and

safe, healthy independence at

home.

As well as delivering its own

services, Family Works also

delivered programmes on

behalf of the Ministry of Social

Development and the Ministry

of Justice to ensure children felt

safer and that families can be

restored.

Online store next step for

specialist footwear shop

Just over a year since the doors first opened, The

Shoe Room in Upper Riccarton is about to launch a

new service for customers – an online store.

Owned by podiatrist Charlotte Russell, who

also owns and operates the podiatry clinic Feet

First, The Shoe Room was part of the clinic before

increasing demand for fashionable, functional

footwear prompted her to open the specialist shop

in December 2019.

“The online store is the next ‘big thing’ for us,

and it means that a much wider customer base

will have access to our extensive range,” Charlotte

says.

Customers logging on to the online store will find

photographs of the shoes taken from every angle

as well as information on the designs and materials

used to make them. A size guide on the website

shows how to measure feet, which Charlotte

encourages people to use so they can be sure of

ordering the right size.

The Shoe Room stocks a number of leading

international footwear brands, and the range has

recently been extended with the addition of the

popular Ziera brand. Also, in addition to Propét, the

store now stocks the Dr Comfort range of medical

footwear.

While The Shoe Room’s main focus is on

women’s footwear, the men’s range is also being

expanded, Charlotte says.

Business has grown steadily over the last 12

months, both through word of mouth and with

customers returning to purchase second and third

pairs of shoes, which Charlotte says is largely due

to the service her staff provides.

“That’s our point of difference. Shop manager

Maxine and shop assistant Carol are very friendly

and welcoming and are able to build a rapport with

customers by providing that all-important personal

service and making sure customers get shoes that

fit correctly, are comfortable and look nice on their

feet.”

The Shoe Room’s online store will go live in

February, a fitting complement to the physical

store, which is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton

Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm,

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,

Thursday 9.30am-5.30pm with late night Tuesday

by appointment only, Saturday 10am-4pm.

However, the online store will be open 24/7.

The Shoe Room looks forward to meeting all of

your footwear requirements.

Carol, left, and Maxine provide the all-important

personal service for The Shoe Room customers

The Shoe Room is located at Unit 3, 355 Riccarton Road, opposite the Lone Star.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-5.30pm,

Saturday 10am-4pm, Tuesday late night by arrangement. Off street parking available.

Plans released for housing complex

A NEW housing complex is

planned for St Albans, replacing

20 old and cold units that were

demolished to make way for the

development in December.

The Ōtautahi Community

Housing Trust plans to build 33

modern, green building-rated

homes on Coles Pl as part of

its continued drive to improve

the city’s community housing

stock.

ŌCHT has applied to the city

council for resource consent, and

an application

for building

consent will

follow.

Neighbours

will be kept

up-to-date

Cate Kearney

with progress

as the proposal

develops,

the trust says.

All tenants from the old units

were rehoused in other ŌCHT

communities in November,

well before work to prepare the

site for the construction of the

new one, two, three and fourbedroom

units began.

Some of the relocated tenants

lived in their community for

many years. Where possible,

long-term tenants may have the

option of returning to Coles Pl.

ŌCHT chief executive Cate

Kearney said the trust aims

NEW HOMES: An artist’s impression of how the Coles Pl housing complex will look.

to reduce homelessness in

Christchurch with new homes

that blend in with other modern,

developments.

“We’d really hope that communities

understand that social

and community housing is needed

more now than ever, and in

all suburbs, especially as we see

the impact of the housing shortage,

high rentals and the lingering

effects of the Covid-19 response

on the number of people

in need of a home,” she said.

The Ministry of Social Development’s

Social Housing Register

routinely has more than 1000

applicants waiting for housing in

the Christchurch city area.

ŌCHT commercial and development

manager Ed Leeson said

the new, two-storey units will be

a home for a range of tenants,

from single people to families.

They will be designed to

achieve the New Zealand Green

Building Council’s Homestar 6

rating, at a standard that is at or

above those set in New Zealand

building code.

Modern materials, passive solar

design and high-spec insulation

will help make them homes

that are environmentally sound

and cheaper to run, Leeson said.

Outside the homes, the surrounding

area includes landscaped

communal green areas

and gardens, roading and parking

are designed for safety and

people-friendly spaces.

“This is going to be a

lovely site with very attractive

landscaping, green spaces, communal

areas and fruit trees,” said

Leeson.

“It used to be home to old

units that were past their usedby

date. We plan to deliver new

homes that enhance the best use

of our land and wider community.”

ŌCHT provided 59 new

homes last year and will open

another 30 when the first stage

of the three stage, 90-home

Brougham St development is

officially opened tomorrow.

“As a landlord, ŌCHT is

all about providing warm, dry, safe

and modern homes,” said Leeson.

“But that is just part of the

story – our leased homes have

been part of Christchurch for 90

years and with our new homes

we aspire to enhance the lives

of our tenants and the community

around them.”

Learn how to minimise waste

• From page 1

“It’s a great learning

opportunity and students come

away with a better understanding

of the importance of waste

reduction and recovering

resources rather than disposing

of them to landfill.’’

Other free city council Learning

Through Action programmes

focus on sustainability, climate

change, biodiversity, geology, water

conservation, Civil Defence

and local government.

“With all of the programmes,

the goal is to provide students

with authentic, hands-on learning

opportunities,’’ said Russell.

Students examine stream

invertebrates as part of the Fresh

Water Frolicking programme.

For example, students go ponddipping

to identify a range of

stream invertebrates and explore

the wider food chains and life

cycles.

They consider the importance

of freshwater biodiversity and

investigate the impact of human

choices on the sustainability of

our eco-systems.

In the Native Nurturing

programme, students explore

the contrasting landscapes of the

Port Hills at Victoria Park. They

discover how the unique Port

Hills environment has changed

over time and take a multisensory

walk through podocarp

forest.

The students get up close and

their impact on native and endemic

species, and they have the

opportunity to learn about tracking

and trapping methods used

by park rangers.

“In the past five years we have

worked with around 200 schools

in Christchurch, helping them

give their students learning experiences

outside the classroom,’’

said Russell.

“Last year 7283 students

from more than 70 schools

participated in our Learning

Through Action programmes.

That is fewer than in previous

years due to the COVID-19

lockdown. In a typical year

between 10,000 and 11,000

students benefit from our

programmes.’’

Challenge to get

people cycling

SIGN language interpreter and

mother-of-two Amy Hewgill

loves taking her kids for a spin

on her bike.

“I find it far more relaxing

than going by car and the kids

really enjoy the ride. We chat

about the things we see

along the way and it is

lots of fun,’’ she said.

Hewgill is one of

thousands to participate

in the Aotearoa

Bike Challenge, which

takes off next month.

Organised by the

New Zealand Transport

Agency, Love to Ride and

the city council, the challenge

is a free competition that encourages

people to experience

first-hand the joys and benefits

of riding a bike.

Workplaces, clubs and groups

can take part in the challenge,

earning points for every person

they sign-up and for every

kilometre, and every day, that

participants ride.

People can also sign up for

the challenge as individuals.

Hewgill has taken part for the

past two years and was keen to

clock-up more consecutive days

on her bike this time around.

Amy Hewgill

She took up cycling about

four years ago after the birth of

her second child because she

wanted to get fit.

Now she’s hooked, using her

bike regularly to take her kids

to school and pre-school before

journeying onto work.

Last year, Christchurch

companies dominated

the Aotearoa Bike

Challenge workplace

competition, scoring

more points than other

workplaces of comparable

size in nearly all

seven categories.

The city council won the category

nationally for workplaces

that employ 2000 or more staff.

Almost 1000 of those who

took part were new to cycling.

“The Aotearoa Bike Challenge

is a fun way to encourage

people to get on a bike and give

cycling a go,’’ said city council

head of transport Richard

Osborne.

“You don’t have to commit

to anything more than one

10-minute bike ride, but you

might find that you really enjoy

the exercise and the fresh air

and it may become something

that you do regularly.”

KIWIBANK LOCAL HERO AWARDS

Work with music therapy earns Wade medal

• By Ella Somers

KIMBERLEY WADE, founder

and director of Southern Music

Therapy, thought it was a hoax

when she found out she had

been made a Kiwibank Local

Hero medallist for her work as

a registered neurologic music

therapist.

However, she said it was “really

lovely to be valued by someone

other than my husband and my

mum. Someone investigated

and appreciated what I’ve done

and thought it was cool, so that’s

pretty special.”

Wade grew up in Hawkes

Bay in a musical family and

studied psychology and classical

singing at Victoria University.

She considered becoming a

clinical psychologist but

“wanted to add the music in

there somewhere.”

After meeting a music therapist

and learning about music therapy,

Wade realised it was a career she

wanted to pursue. She auditioned

and got into Victoria University’s

master of music therapy

programme and, after graduating,

moved to Christchurch.

Wade describes musical therapy

as a tool to help with a nonmusical

goal, like finger dexterity

or helping with emotional

expression.

“We’re also working on

communication, physical

VALUED: Providing musical therapy for people with

disabilities has earned Kimberley Wade a Kiwibank Local

Hero medal for 2021.

rehabilitation, cognitive,

emotional and social goals,” she

said.

Music therapy is in “quite

a medical field,” Wade said,

something she wishes people

were more aware of.

“As musical therapists, we’re

providing opportunities and we

think outside the box as to how

music can be accessible to people

with disabilities.

“I love music because

it’s a non-verbal way of

communicating with people. It

bypasses everything and gets right

into your soul and provides this

universal connection to people.”

Wade has more than14 years

experience as a neurologic

music therapist and works

primarily with people who have

rehabilitation and neurological

conditions.

Said Wade: “I founded

Southern Music Therapy

because I liked working with

people with neurological

conditions. I wanted to work with

stroke clients which was quite

unheard of in New Zealand, not

just Christchurch.”

Southern Music Therapy

provides a range of therapy

services for people with

disabilities from group work

to individual sessions and

now works within all the

big neurological facilities in

Christchurch such as Equitas, St

John of God, Laura Fergusson

and Burwood Hospital.

As well as setting up the

organisation, Wade co-founded

the Cantabrainer Choir Trust

with Therapy Professionals in

February 2012 which is now run

by the trust.

The choir is for people with

neurological conditions. Wade

said she is really proud of what it’s

done for so many people.

“There was a real gap for people

with neurological conditions

who couldn’t afford private music

therapy.

“It’s a fabulous community

space for people to come together

and be able to do rehabilitation

without it being super expensive.”

A lot of Wade’s clients,

especially her stroke clients, are

not covered by ACC which means

they have to pay privately for

music therapy.

“There’s never enough funding

in the neurologic area and there’s

never enough understanding of

what musical therapy can offer,”

Wade said.

“I do have clients who sacrifice

parts of their lifestyle in order to

pay for the therapy because it’s so

highly valued in their world.”

It’s only after years of education

and advocacy of music therapy

that Wade feels more people are

aware that music therapy is out

there. Ideally, she wants people

to know that music therapy is an

option just like speech therapy or

physiotherapy and to make sure

it’s available to people if they need

it.

“In the last couple of years

music therapy is becoming more

recognised and more valued,” she

said.

“It’s definitely growing and

keeping it as a quality service is

very important.”

KIWIBANK LOCAL HERO AWARDS

The Kiwibank Local Hero of the Year Award recognises 100 individuals across the country who strive to

make their communities a better place through hard work and dedication. Included in the top 100 local

hero medallists for 2020 were 12 Cantabrians. We profile those who live in Christchurch.

• Abdul Aziz Wahabzadah

Abdul Aziz Wahabzadah has

been hailed as a hero by law

enforcement, politicians and the

public for his actions on March

15, 2019, when he risked his

life to chase down the terrorist

behind the Christchurch

mosque attacks. Wahabzadah

was worshipping at Linwood

Mosque when the killer entered

the mosque and opened fire. In

spite of the clear risk to his own

life, he chased the offender from

the room, while grabbing an

Abdul Aziz Wahabzadah

Eftpos machine to hurl at him.

Wahabzadah’s quick thinking

and bravery saved many lives

and helped law enforcement to

quickly identify the killer’s car

and capture him.

• Alice Andersen

As executive director of

Qtopia, Alice Andersen’s role

is to celebrate, educate and

advocate for New Zealand’s

rainbow youth and their

whānau. In the year alone she

has designed, developed and

Alice Andersen

delivered Qtopia’s education

programme to more than

2000 people in Aotearoa and

Australia and helped establish

international best practice for

how schools can support gender

diverse students with her mahi

alongside Christ’s College, as

they supported their first out

transgender student.

• Erica Austin

Erica Austin was nearing

the end of her Masters of

Architecture degree at the

University of Auckland when

the Christchurch earthquakes

happened. She finished her

degree and moved south,

excited to participate in the

city’s rebuild. She is interested

in how cities can build ‘social

architecture’ to ensure the

physical environment is vibrant,

inclusive, and unites and engages

its inhabitants. Since arriving,

Austin has thrown herself

into a wide range of creative,

community and entrepreneurial

projects, and considers herself

a “Christchurch ambassador.”

She has been an invaluable

member of the teams at FESTA

(Festival Of Transitional

Architecture), the Ministry

of Awesome, Gapfiller, TEDx

Christchurch, PechaKucha,

the Christchurch Arts Festival,

WORD Christchurch, and LINC

(Leadership in Communities).

• Nigel Hampton

As a criminal lawyer with

more than five decades of

experience, Nigel Hampton has

been involved with many highprofile

cases, including the Pike

River Royal Commission and the

collapse of the CTV building.

He has been chair of the New

Zealand Law Practitioners

Disciplinary Tribunal, was the

first Disciplinary Commissioner

of Counsel at the International

Criminal Court at the Hague,

and Chief Justice of the Kingdom

of Tonga. He is a judicial officer

for World Rugby and New

Zealand Rugby, on the boards

of charitable bodies, and is New

Zealand patron of the Howard

League for penal reform. He also

helped establish the Criminal

Cases Review Commission

board, to redefine the way

possible miscarriages of justice

are identified.

Christchurch barbershops, My

Father’s Barber, are places for

men to get their hair cut or beard

After Vicki-Anne Parker lost

her house in the Christchurch

earthquake, she remembers being

touched by a hand-knitted redand-black

scarf sent to her by a

stranger living in Auckland. The

effect of that small gift during

a hard time was the motivation

behind Parker’s charity, NZ

Gifts of Love and Strength,

which sources donations and

provides care packages to

victims of severe trauma. The

organisation was established

after the Christchurch mosque

shootings in 2019 when Parker

provided care packages and

three meals a day to 31 families

affected by the shootings. Since

then Parker has supported New

Brighton Primary pupils who lost

their classrooms in a fire and a

Christchurch family who suffered

a fatal house fire.
