Cartwright resigns as

board chief – again

• By Bea Gooding

AFTER NEARLY three years of

leading the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board,

chairman David Cartwright is

calling it quits.

In a resignation letter

addressed to board members,

Cartwright said he intends to

step down from the role effective

March 14.

The letter will be presented

at the next meeting on March

15, allowing time to prepare a

report for the election of a new

chairperson.

Cartwright said the move was

planned to give other members

an opportunity to lead while

bringing their own experiences

and skills to the table.

“Part of the responsibility of

chairperson is about succession

planning that allows other

members to lead the board by

doing the first half of the term,”

he said.

Cartwright will remain as a

board member while supporting

the new chairperson leading to

the next elections in 2022.

It was not the first time he

stepped down. In 2018, Sam

MacDonald became chairman

for the same reason.

Cartwright stepped back into

the role in 2019 for just over

a year while newer members

settled in.

“I used this opportunity

to help others for a while and

help them get up to speed,” he

said.

“Some other people are new, so

to throw someone new in such

an important role can put a lot of

pressure on them.”

A new chairperson will be

discussed at the next meeting.

THE CITY council is scouting

for new uses for the high

performance sports centre at Jellie

Park.

The centre – the Apollo Project

Centre – was built after the

earthquakes to provide a temporary

home for High Performance

Sport New Zealand because it had

lost the use of the sports facilities

at Queen Elizabeth II Park.

HPSNZ has been using the

centre since May 2013, but it will

move into the new Metro Sports

Facility in the

central city when

it opens in 2022.

With no longterm

need for the

Apollo Project

Centre, HPSNZ

is looking to gift

David Bailey

the building onto

the city council

or to a suitable community recreation

group when it moves out.

The building, which is located

next to the Jellie Park Recreation

and Sport Centre, has a full-sized

netball court, a strength and

conditioning gym, a 40m running

straight, and showers, as well as

offices and meeting spaces.

“It’s a facility that still has a

number of years life left in it, even

though it was only designed to

be a temporary building,’’ says

city council recreation and sports

services manager David Bailey.

“When HPSNZ moves out,

there is an opportunity for it to

be taken over by one of the city’s

sporting or community recreation

groups.

“The building lends itself to

all sorts of activities – we’re

open to considering any proposed

use of the building that is in

keeping with the surrounding

sport and recreation facilities

and that helps to get more people

more active, more often,’’ Bailey

said.

“If you have an idea for how

the building could be used, and

you are willing and able to take

on the total responsibility for

managing and operating the

building including all costs, then

please respond to our request for

proposals.

“If, as a result of that process,

we identify a suitable potential

new use for the building, we will

then consult with the community

to ascertain their views on the

building remaining in place.

Following consideration of these

views if the community board is

Roading discussion sessions postponed

A DROP-IN session for the

Wheels to Wings – Papanui

ki Waiwhetū cycleway has

been postponed because of the

Covid-19 alert level change.

The event was scheduled to take

place at the Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale

Community Centre today.

“We are going to re-schedule

the drop-in session and extend

the consultation period on the

cycleway design plans because we

want people to have the opportunity

to discuss any concerns

they might have with city council

staff so that they can then put in

an informed submission,’’ city

council engagement manager

Katy McRae said.

“As soon as we have confirmed

a new date for the drop-in session,

we will put the details on

have your say. We are hoping

it will be able to go ahead next

week.’’

A drop-in session about Way

Better Roads – the work the city

council is doing in five suburban

areas of Christchurch to make it

safer and easier to get around –

has also been postponed.

The drop-in session was

scheduled to take place at

Delta Trust Community House

today.

Readers respond to

the proposed Wings to

Wheels cycleway

I totally disagree with

what the council are planning

to do with Harewood

for another “white elephant”

cycleway.

We would be taking a real

backward step by decreasing

the four-lane road to two

lanes. So many of Christchurch’s

roads have been destroyed

with these obtrusive

cycleways.

At a meeting in Bishopdale,

a councillor was asked

how many cyclists use Harewood

Rd. And they hadn’t

even done a survey for this

figure. How can you carry

out such a destroying plan

when no research had been

done?

I don’t count many cycles

on any of the kerbed cycleways.

And I don’t count

many children biking to

school. So why destroy

another road such as Harewood

Rd?

I used to bike to work 20

years ago using Harewood

Rd to get into town. Always

felt completely safe as the

road was quite wide anyway.

The council believe we

are all going to change and

start biking and busing,

but they’re dreaming, there

are more and more cars

and I don’t believe this will

change.

Biking is too convenient.

I am not going to bike to

go shopping in town. If you

want to buy any products,

how are you going to get

them back home? On a small

basket on your bike?

Work on Cancer Society’s new

patient facility to start in May

CONSTRUCTION of a new

building to house the Cancer

Society’s Christchurch-based

patient accommodation and

support services in Papanui is set

to start in May.

The charity’s old facilities were

destroyed by the

Canterbury earthquakes

10 years

ago.

Cancer Society

Canterbury-West

Coast division

chief executive

Elizabeth Chesterman

said the

charity was thrilled to receive

Elizabeth

confirmation that it was successful

in securing $6.5 million from

the Government’s shovel-ready

fund.

“This funding from the Government

means that we can, at

last, proceed with confidence on

our long-awaited rebuild on our

new site at 74 Langdons Rd in

Papanui,” Chesterman said.

“Over the past 10 years we

have had to react quickly and

frequently relocate our operations

to ensure we could keep

providing the services that people

with cancer from around our

region rely on.”

The accommodation facilities

provide a home away from home

for people around the South Island,

and even as far afield as the

Chatham Islands who come to

Christchurch Hospital for cancer

treatment.

Said Chesterman: “We are excited

that our new 50-bedroom

patient accommodation facility

will offer our guests easy access

to a wide range of amenities

including shops, cafes, restaurants,

cinemas, a library and the

nearby Graham Condon Recreation

and Sport Centre, including

the swimming pool.”

Chesterman indicated that the

facilities to their hospital

appointments and back again.

“We know from experience

how challenging cancer treatment

can be and we believe those

staying with us will value being

able to have their treatment and

then enjoy some rest and recreation

in modern, welcoming

facilities away from the hospital

environment,” Chesterman said.

“Our new site will include ample

parking to enable Christchurch

locals to easily access faceto-face

emotional, practical and

financial support, our resource

library and our cancer-related

groups and programmes,” Chesterman

said.

The anticipated completion

date for the new complex is early

2023 and the projected total cost

is more than $20 million. The

charity will be embarking on a

fundraising campaign to ensure

the surrounding landscaping

and interior of the complex provides

the most comfortable and

pleasant environment possible

for cancer patients from across

the South Island and the local

Christchurch community.

LOGICAL REWARD: A Papanui High School team comprising Josh Rae,

Chloe Morrison-Clarke, Indie Lewis and Shelby Allen has won the Australian

Ethics Olympiad, held via Zoom meetings last week.

Papanui HS students

win ethics olympiad

PAPANUI HIGH School has won gold at

the Australasian Ethics Olympiad, with

a quartet of year 10 students showcasing

superior logic against more than 250 rival

institutions.

Shelby Allen, Indie Lewis, Chloe

Morrison-Clarke and Josh Rae either

presented compelling arguments or

effectively questioned opposing teams

on eight topics including the ethics of

enforced quarantine for Covid-19 and the

repatriation of fighters from international

terrorism networks.

Judging panels featuring ethicists and

philosophers from around the world

weighed up the participants’ perceptive

thinking when confronted with moral

dilemmas.

Papanui High progressed from a series

of round-robin debates to a 24-team finals

series last week, comprising teams from

New Zealand and each Australian state

and territory.

In the final tally of judges scores

Papanui High finished clear of closest

challenger Iona College from Perth,

Western Australia.

“It’s a useful way for students to build

ethical decision-making muscle and

hone an ability to respectfully discuss

deeply contentious questions facing an

increasingly complex and divided world,”

said team coach Jo Dwan.

“There’s a real emphasis on promoting

respectful dialogue around ethical issues,”

Dwan said.

It is the third year Papanui High has

entered the olympiad, and success was particularly

sweet for Australian-born Dwan.

“We beat every private school in

Australia, it was very enjoyable,” the

English teacher said.

The ethics olympiad was inspired by

the United States’ Ethics Bowl, an intercollegiate

tournament that started more

than 30 years ago.

Women’s World Cup trophy on display

CASHMERE HIGH School

students had the opportunity to

get up close and personal with the

Women’s World Cup cricket trophy

last week.

They were able to capture the

moment through selfies and the

school photographer. Canterbury

Cricket also provided fun activities,

such as the dive mat, to allow

students and staff to showcase

their cricketing prowess.

Deputy principal Blair Johnson

took a “particularly fine diving

catch.”

Said head of cricket Paul Weggery:

“The central principle of

cricket is the love of playing the

game. This allows you to be relaxed

while taking the opportunities

given to you in order to attain

excellence.

“We saw this in Devon Conway’s

epic 99 against Australia,’’

he said.

“Every time we play, we enjoy

the opportunity,” which was

evident in the school’s recent

championship performance in

the T20 Gillette Cup Qualifier.

Next up for the school is the

girl’s competition with the theme

being “Fun with Cricket.”

The first XI also have their next

Gillette Cup knockout match

against St Bede’s College.

OPPORTUNITY: Cashmere High School deputy principal Blair Johnson

PUPILS FROM Marshland

School got a adrenalin-pumped

start to the new school year last

week when they went on a four

day camp to the YMCA Wainui

Park Camp near Akaroa.

Kayaking, abseiling, high

ropes, low ropes, archery and

raft building were just some

of the activities, with pupils

choosing their own level of

difficulty.

Teacher Carolyn Davies said

the pupils often found they were

stronger or braver than they

thought. She said the camp was

a fantastic way for pupils to

learn and grow outside of the

learning hubs. The activities

helped them to push boundaries,

gain confidence and work

together as a team to achieve a

common goal.

Davies said the activities and

skills learnt will be foundations

for the year ahead.

HOME & HEATING

Are you struggling

with the heat of

Summer or wanting

to get organised for

Winter?

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

60

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.

Contact Smooth-Air on 0800

SMOOTH or sales@smooth-air.co.nz

for more information on the AirTouch4

zone control.

With the ever changing weather patterns,

heat pumps have the flexibility of being able

to heat and cool which is an advantage no

other appliance can offer. This represents

great value for your investment as you can

use it all year round. The team at Enviro

Master Ltd can help keep you cool this

Summer either at home or work. Enviro

Master supplies, installs and services all the

leading brands including Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means our team

can show you which system and brand will

best suit your needs.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals, now

is a great time to beat the 1st of July deadline.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead

to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

requirements.

It is important to remember, when

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s

warranty does not cover the installation

and consumers could be responsible for any

repair or damage caused to the system due

to poor installation. Enviro Master’s ensures

correct installation, and a demonstration so

customers have an understanding on how it

will best meet their needs.

For a free in home consultation, call

Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our

showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd,
