Dispute<br />

over how<br />

safe it is<br />

to live in<br />

Parklands<br />

• By Bea Gooding<br />

GRANT DONNELL thinks police<br />

need to “open their eyes” if they<br />

believe youth offending has not<br />

increased in Parklands.<br />

Police say the suburb is statistically<br />

a safe community to live in,<br />

but a 2000-signature strong petition<br />

started by Donnell to<br />

address the problem<br />

suggested otherwise.<br />

The petition was presented<br />

to the Coastal-<br />

Burwood Community<br />

Board this week, which<br />

asked the city council<br />

to install crime prevention<br />

cameras in problem<br />

areas.<br />

The hotspots included the<br />

Parklands Reserve, Parklands<br />

Grant<br />

Donnell<br />

Community Centre and the Travis<br />

Wetlands walking trail car parks on<br />

Mairehau Rd.<br />

But police say there is no indication<br />

reported crime has increased in<br />

the Parklands area.<br />

Said Senior Sergeant Phil Newton:<br />

“We are aware of the concerns people<br />

have expressed on social media,<br />

but there is no evidence to suggest<br />

they’re more likely to experience<br />

crime in Parklands than they are in<br />

any other suburb. • Turn to page 5<br />

Popular book sale a haven for all<br />

AT NEARLY 90, Elizabeth<br />

Williams helps oversee the<br />

volunteers running the Big<br />

Bargain Book Sale at the Pioneer<br />

Recreation and Sport Centre this<br />

month.<br />

She is a member of the<br />

160-strong team – covering a<br />

range of ages and interests – collectively<br />

known as the Friends of<br />

Christchurch City Libraries.<br />

Each year, up to 40 friends<br />

from “across the generations”<br />

unpack, display and help sell<br />

thousands of books and magazines<br />

that have been withdrawn<br />

from library collections.<br />

After 30 years, the oldest<br />

and newest life member of the<br />

Friends has opted to leave the<br />

book sale to the younger volunteers.<br />

Member Barbara Clarke said<br />

that the group is involved in<br />

many areas of library life but is<br />

always looking for new members.<br />

“We have such a range of<br />

people involved, including those<br />

who help out with our popular<br />

book sale, which attracts thousands<br />

of people every year,” said<br />

Clarke, a former librarian.<br />

“The first book sale organised<br />

by the group was held at the<br />

(now demolished) King Edward<br />

Barracks in the central city in<br />

1989.<br />

“Today, we have about 6000<br />

TEAMWORK: At nearly 90, Elizabeth Williams (centre) helps oversee volunteers at the Big<br />

Bargain Book Sale.<br />

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​<br />

people browsing the annual<br />

Big Bargain Book Sale items<br />

over two days at the Pioneer<br />

Centre.”<br />

She pins the ongoing success<br />

of the sale on “everyone’s love of<br />

a bargain and the opportunity to<br />

purchase ex-library stock at very<br />

reasonable prices.”<br />

“Bargain hunters can purchase<br />

for their specialist interest areas;<br />

gather books and magazines for<br />

the bach; select children’s picture<br />

books, easy and longer reads and<br />

interesting non-fiction; and also<br />

choose from large print, graphic<br />

novels and a huge assortment of<br />

novels and non-fiction.”<br />

City council head of libraries<br />

and information Carolyn<br />

Robertson said that the Friends<br />

of the Library is an “invaluable<br />

resource.”<br />

“The volunteers really drive<br />

the book sale, ensuring everything<br />

is well set out and that the<br />

sale days go amazingly well,” she<br />

said.<br />

“They constantly replenish the<br />

stock throughout both days so<br />

it does not matter when anyone<br />

arrives, there are always more<br />

bargains on the tables.’’<br />

Set up in 1988, the Friends<br />

provide a monthly programme<br />

of book talks with local authors,<br />

and raises funds for a range of<br />

items, such as chairs for older<br />

people, art, digital cameras,<br />

wheelchairs and special book<br />

trolleys.<br />

This year’s sale will take place<br />

at Pioneer Stadium tomorrow<br />

from 9am to 7pm and on<br />

Saturday, from 9am to 4pm.<br />

Pupils<br />

rewarded for<br />

summertime<br />

reading<br />

TAKING PART in the city<br />

council libraries’ annual<br />

Summertime Reading challenge<br />

paid off for a number of pupils<br />

across the city, including at<br />

Bromley School.<br />

Participating Bromley pupils all<br />

received book packs from Wheelers<br />

Books – a school library<br />

supplier – for the challenge which<br />

celebrates the joy of reading,<br />

encouraging people of all ages to<br />

simply pick up a book and read<br />

over the summer holidays.<br />

It also paid off for 279 Redwood<br />

Primary School pupils,<br />

who each received a Cookie Time<br />

treat for their efforts last week.<br />

Said Sandra Matai, the school’s<br />

librarian: “They’re [the pupils] are<br />

quite excited, every single student<br />

got one, including a gift basket for<br />

staff. It’s great that it was schoolwide.”<br />

The challenge took place from<br />

the beginning of December last<br />

year to the end of February.<br />

Children under 13-years-old<br />

were encouraged to read at least<br />

three books and describe what<br />

they thought about each book<br />

using three adjectives.<br />

‘Police need to open their eyes and listen to the community’<br />

• From page 1<br />

“In terms of what is being<br />

reported, it is the same kind of<br />

volume crimes you would expect<br />

in any metro suburb. Statistically<br />

speaking, it is a safe community<br />

to live in.”<br />

Newton said reported victimisation<br />

was down in the area over<br />

the past three years, compared to<br />

the three years prior.<br />

“This could be for one or two<br />

reasons – either crime is on the<br />

decrease, or people aren’t reporting<br />

crime,” Newton said.<br />

However, Donnell begged to<br />

differ.<br />

He said police would not have<br />

stepped up their presence in<br />

the area recently if there was<br />

nothing to suggest the issue had<br />

worsened.<br />

In the last three weeks, he said<br />

Parklands went from not seeing<br />

any police to sometimes observing<br />

“15 cop cars a day,” which has<br />

led to fewer incidents and “made<br />

people feel safer.”<br />

Incidents allegedly included<br />

assault with knives, theft, car<br />

break-ins and selling drugs<br />

primarily involving 10, 12 and<br />

sometimes <strong>18</strong>-year-olds, but<br />

Donnell did not rule out older<br />

offenders.<br />

“If the cops don’t think there’s<br />

a problem, then they need to<br />

open their eyes and listen to the<br />

community,” said the Parklands<br />

resident.<br />

“There wouldn’t be an outcry<br />

if there was nothing going on in<br />

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do<br />

you believe Parklands is a<br />

safe community to live in?<br />

gooding@starmedia.kiwi<br />

the community. The community<br />

wouldn’t be organising a meeting<br />

with more than 150 people if<br />

there wasn’t a problem.”<br />

A meeting is scheduled for next<br />

month where residents, schools,<br />

community groups, business<br />

owners, city council staff and<br />

police are expected to attend.<br />

Coastal Ward councillor James<br />

Daniels shared the community’s<br />

concerns having been through it<br />

himself.<br />

“I’ve been burgled, I’ve had<br />

my car broken into at the Fresh<br />

Choice car park and a lot of stuff<br />

was taken. It’s unacceptable and<br />

something needs to be done<br />

about it,” said Daniels.<br />

But he agreed with police that<br />

the issues were not exclusive to<br />

Parklands.<br />

“It’s not the only place where<br />

this happens. But it’s a perception<br />

thing, [the offending] is in your<br />

face because it’s in our place.”<br />

Newton said Local Youth Aid<br />

and Community officers are<br />

engaging youth in the area who<br />

were alleged to have committed<br />

an offence and future community<br />

engagement was anticipated.<br />

In the meantime, there were<br />

many simple messages the public<br />

could do to help prevent themselves<br />

from becoming a victim of<br />

crime.<br />

“A message we would like to<br />

emphasise to the community is<br />

to please ensure your vehicle is<br />

locked and expensive items are<br />

not left in your car, or outside<br />

your property, in plain sight,”<br />

said Newton.<br />

“Police would like to remind<br />

anyone who witnesses any<br />

suspicious activity to report it<br />

and remember the rules – if<br />

it’s happening now call 111<br />

or if it’s historic, dial 105 or<br />

Crimestoppers anonymously on<br />

0800 555 111.”<br />

•The community meeting<br />

will be held on April 8 from<br />

7pm at the Pūkeko Centre,<br />

HEALTH & AWARENESS<br />

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or<br />

could it be mainly my muscles?<br />

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham<br />

sees clients with a range of symptoms but<br />

many of their middle-aged and senior clients<br />

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.<br />

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests<br />

that a major part of the pain could be due<br />

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.<br />

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason<br />

for the pain may be the muscles around<br />

the joint,” she explains. The images show<br />

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back<br />

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain<br />

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot<br />

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder<br />

blade can give a deep pain in the front of<br />

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way<br />

near the groin can give an ache in the knee<br />

(especially at night in bed).<br />

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year<br />

old client with severe arthritis who walked<br />

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in<br />

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight<br />

through my right leg due to pain in my hip<br />

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she<br />

was walking with her stick but without the<br />

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was<br />

one of the factors that made her muscles<br />

spasm but the other was that older people<br />

move less and the flexed position the hip<br />

is in when we sit is particularly bad for<br />

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that<br />

although the client was 89 and could have<br />

been “given up on” or told to live with the<br />

pain, she made a difference to her health<br />

and wellbeing.<br />

The same lack of movement can be the<br />

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder<br />

pain and the same few treatments could<br />

make a huge difference for you.<br />

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques<br />

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation<br />

techniques) are used to release the muscles.<br />

The client also gets a home exercise<br />

program designed to mobilize and stretch<br />

the joint, strengthen the important core<br />

muscles and increase general strength and<br />

SHOULDER<br />

PAIN<br />

KNEE PAIN<br />

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)<br />

balance. They teach a movement sequence<br />

that stretches the joint in all directions<br />

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their<br />

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.<br />

In many cases having the muscles<br />

released and being taught how to maintain<br />

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.<br />

HIP PAIN<br />

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,<br />

some maintenance therapy may be<br />

necessary, but that is often more affordable<br />

and, for older patients, better tolerated<br />

than surgery. After only one treatment you<br />

should know that it will work for you. Call<br />

and only pay $50 on that treament.<br />

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the<br />

door and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

of important dates to determine<br />

“whose brother was who,” later<br />

growing into a passion to help<br />

others trace their roots.<br />

“I’ve managed to prove that<br />

one [family] line was an adopted<br />

line through records and oldstyle<br />

sleuthing,” said Lees who<br />

described her most rewarding<br />

discoveries.<br />

“I’ve also managed to prove<br />

that my family was shipwrecked<br />

in <strong>18</strong>62 off the Isle of Wight in<br />

the United Kingdom. The Times<br />

in London gave my ancestors’<br />

names.<br />

“It’s a passion and addiction –<br />

once you’ve been bitten, that’s it.”<br />

The society, based in Auckland,<br />

has promoted the study<br />

of family history and genealogies<br />

since 1967, providing the<br />

necessary tools and expertise<br />

for others to make their own<br />

discoveries.<br />

friends had a shared curiosity<br />

about their ancestors and eventually<br />

started a group.<br />

More than 50 years later, it<br />

morphed into a national society<br />

and has since grown into more<br />

than 60 regional branches across<br />

the country.<br />

Established in 1968, that makes<br />

the Canterbury regional branch<br />

the oldest in New Zealand.<br />

Lees was appointed the Canterbury<br />

convener in July last year<br />

and has been on the committee<br />

for more than 10 years. But her<br />

involvement spans back to the<br />

1980s.<br />

Retiring last year, she worked<br />

for the city council for 35 years<br />

as a technical application specialist<br />

helping internal staff with<br />

their computers.<br />

As the convener, she puts<br />

together monthly newsletters,<br />

deals with memberships and<br />

transcribes school records for<br />

future genealogists as it was an<br />

“underused” record in NZ.<br />

“In Britain, there are census<br />

records with raw data being kept<br />

where you can track your family<br />

every 10 years,” she said.<br />

“But in NZ, governments saw<br />

fit not to keep that raw data and<br />

only had summaries on how<br />

many people lived in suburbs.<br />

School records tell you where<br />

you’ve come from, who your<br />

guardians are, your age, and<br />

where you’re going to next –<br />

you can track a family through<br />

there.”<br />

Based at the Parklands Community<br />

Centre, the society had<br />

many resources on hand including<br />

a branch library, computers,<br />

paper records, parish registers<br />

and monumental inscriptions.<br />

People can become members<br />

and connect with other family<br />

history enthusiasts nationwide to<br />

share tips and tricks on research<br />

methods.<br />

“We encourage people who<br />

come to the library to have the<br />

basics about yourself, your parents<br />

and grandparents, it’s good<br />

to have a skeleton tree. Otherwise<br />

by the time they’ve talked<br />

for five minutes you’ve lost all<br />

the information,” Lees said.<br />

Thursday <strong>March</strong> <strong>18</strong> <strong>2021</strong> 7<br />

for hungry-to-learn Fiona<br />

NUMBER ONE SUPPLIER<br />

TO THE NZ JET BOATING<br />

COMMUNITY FOR OVER<br />

50 YEARS<br />

“We have people rock up and<br />

say: ‘I want to learn more about<br />

my family, I think they came<br />

from Denmark.’ So people<br />

who are interested in searching<br />

that area have a meeting, share<br />

ideas and tips on how or where<br />

to find things.”<br />

The process was not always<br />

simple seeing as 80 per cent<br />

of information could not be<br />

found online, but having the<br />

internet nonetheless definitely<br />

made things easier.<br />

“We used to have to go and<br />

write letters, visit places to get<br />

information but now you’ve<br />

got lots of information online,”<br />

she said.<br />

But most genealogists were<br />

not interested in just a list of<br />

facts – the importance of social<br />

history built a much better picture<br />

of how that person lived.<br />

Putting the facts together<br />

and shaping it into a story<br />

“makes it far more fun.”<br />

“It’s always nice to put your<br />

person in a place with what<br />

else was happening in the<br />

world at that time. A list of<br />

facts is a bit boring,” she said.<br />

“Most of the real genealogists<br />

aren’t just interested in<br />

names and the date of birth,<br />

marriage and death. They<br />

actually want to learn more<br />

about people, what they did,<br />

where they lived and why they<br />

shifted countries.”<br />

Over the years, the branch<br />

has seen a rise in people wanting<br />

to know more about where<br />

they came from through the<br />

avenue of DNA testing.<br />

“We’re also finding people<br />

are related to each other within<br />

the branch through DNA<br />

which is fun,” she said.<br />

But DNA testing did not<br />

always have the most desirable<br />

results.<br />

Although people could trace<br />

their ethnicity or find birth<br />

families if they were adopted,<br />

finding out they were not<br />

related to someone was “devastating.”<br />

“There are brick walls that<br />

will never be solved,” Lees<br />

said.<br />

“But for some people, the<br />

downside with DNA is showing<br />

that who you thought was<br />

your father, actually wasn’t.<br />

That has been really devastating.”<br />

Lees shares her addiction of<br />

family history with her husband,<br />

David, throughout 40<br />

years of marriage.<br />

The mutual understanding<br />

meant date nights were a little<br />

more interesting in odd places<br />

like cemeteries and libraries.<br />

For Lees, that passion was<br />

wanting to know more about<br />

where she came from and what<br />

influences made her the person<br />

she is today,<br />

But knowing your roots can<br />

also be essential to one’s own<br />

survival.<br />

“For some, it might even be<br />

a health component. Heart<br />

attacks, strokes or Alzheimer’s<br />

might run in the family.<br />

Looking at what people died<br />

of might be a push for some<br />

people.”<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

The facts about home ventilation<br />

Balanced Pressure<br />

vs Positive Pressure<br />

Under the New Zealand Building Code,<br />

all buildings, including residential, need<br />

to be suitably ventilated, either with<br />

opening windows or forced ventilation.<br />

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this<br />

provision is to safeguard people from<br />

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of<br />

fresh air.” There are many benefits to<br />

forced, or mechanical, ventilation over<br />

opening windows, including warmth,<br />

security, reduction of outside noises and<br />

reduction of condensation.<br />

Traditional domestic ventilation systems<br />

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in<br />

from outside via the roof space and force<br />

the stale air out through gaps around<br />

windows and doors. The incoming air<br />

from these systems<br />

has to be heated<br />

or cooled to keep<br />

the house warm in<br />

winter or cool in<br />

summer.<br />

The Smooth-<br />

Air HEX390 is a<br />

‘balanced pressure’<br />

system. It extracts<br />

air from the house<br />

and at the same<br />

time brings in<br />

fresh air. These<br />

two streams of air<br />

pass through a heat<br />

exchanger, which<br />

warms incoming air in winter and cools in<br />

summer if air conditioning is being used.<br />

This means that up to 80% of the energy<br />

which would be wasted using a traditional<br />

positive pressure system is recovered,<br />

resulting in significant energy savings and<br />

therefore lower heating or cooling costs.<br />

Until recently, balanced pressure<br />

ventilation systems have been considerably<br />

more expensive than traditional positive<br />

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-<br />

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a<br />

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be<br />

installed for a similar price as a traditional<br />

positive pressure system.<br />

to ventilate your home<br />

HEX 390<br />

For Healthy Indoor Air<br />

Heat is transferred to the<br />

incoming filtered fresh air<br />

&<br />

With the ever changing weather patterns,<br />

heat pumps have the flexibility of being able<br />

to heat and cool which is an advantage no<br />

other appliance can offer. This represents<br />

great value for your investment as you can<br />

use it all year round. The team at Enviro<br />

Master Ltd can help keep you cool this<br />

Summer either at home or work. Enviro<br />

Master supplies, installs and services all the<br />

leading brands including Panasonic, Fujitsu,<br />

Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means our team<br />

can show you which system and brand will<br />

best suit your needs.<br />

With new regulations coming in for<br />

Landlords to provide heating in rentals, now<br />

is a great time to beat the 1st of July deadline.<br />

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead<br />

to mould growth and dampness in your<br />

property, leading to costlier maintenance<br />

and an unhealthy living environment.<br />

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat<br />

output and lower running costs, like a heat<br />

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the<br />

area effectively. Enviro Master are well<br />

experienced with the Tenancy Services<br />

software to ensure that you are meeting your<br />

requirements.<br />

It is important to remember, when<br />

selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s<br />

warranty does not cover the installation<br />

and consumers could be responsible for any<br />

repair or damage caused to the system due<br />

to poor installation. Enviro Master’s ensures<br />

correct installation, and a demonstration so<br />

customers have an understanding on how it<br />

will best meet their needs.<br />

needs to look at how we enable<br />

Manukura Kōrero<br />

Whāia e koe te iti kahurangi. Ki te tuohu me he maunga teitei<br />

Seek the treasures of your heart. If you bow, let it be to a lofty mountain<br />

This week we have been asking ourselves, “What does a great tātāriki/<br />

leader look like?” An answer to that question can be found in American<br />

civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. On August 28, 1963 King led<br />

a <strong>March</strong> on Washington, demanding civil and economic rights, jobs and<br />

freedom for Black Americans. His speech called for an end to racism in the<br />

United States. There are always going to be leaders who stand up for what<br />

is right and just.<br />

We want Haeata ākonga to be those kinds of leaders. Hautūtanga/leadership<br />

is first and foremost about service. It requires an individual to be<br />

selfless. It requires real humility, but most importantly it requires courage.<br />

Every ākonga at Haeata is expected to show leadership. A Haeata leader is<br />

bold and resolute, forward thinking, an individual who is unflinching, unwavering<br />

and focussed on the task at hand. A person who lives and breathes<br />

our values and dispositions. Who knows the importance of service before<br />

self!<br />

As leaders we do not always have to be the loudest, or to be standing at<br />

the front. We do not have to be controlling<br />

- that is not true leadership. Leadership is<br />

humility, kindness, patience, courage and<br />

compromise. A true Haeata leader is a<br />

fearless person who sets clear, achievable<br />

goals and systematically achieves them. A<br />

true Haeata leader models angitu/success.<br />

As Manukura/Principal of Haeata I have a<br />

real sense of pride in our āknoga.<br />

They are leaders and they will change and<br />

shape the future. They will make this world<br />

a kinder, safer place.<br />

Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui!<br />

Dr. Peggy Burrows<br />

KAMAR Portal<br />

The Haeata Kamar Portal is now open!<br />

This handy app is a great way for you to engage with your<br />

children’s attendance across the school, and learning in<br />

the senior school (yr 9-13).<br />

Contact your ākonga’s Puna Ako teacher to find your log<br />

in, or call reception for extra support in setting this up.<br />

Haeata Tikanga<br />

One of our Raukura (Assistant Principal), Jess Kakoi, has been<br />

hard at work over the last year developing our School Tikanga<br />

alongside a team of kaimahi.<br />

He Korowai Manaaki is the Haeata Community Campus purpose<br />

built positive behaviour management system. This includes how<br />

our ākonga manage themselves and how kaimahi support all<br />

ākonga to be safe at school.<br />

The Tikanga in the attached photo were developed in consultation<br />

with ākonga, kaimahi and whānau, and reflect a Te Ao Māori<br />

world view, giving clear guidelines to what is expected.<br />

We have been so lucky at Haeata to have kaimahi the calibre of Jess Kakoi who can design<br />

and develop something like He Korowai Manaaki!<br />

Ko Haeata Tatou!<br />

When I come home to Haeata :<br />

I WILL BE SAFE AND SUCCESSFUL WHEN I…<br />

•ARRIVE on time and actively participate.<br />

• SHOW respect for ALL.<br />

• ALWAYS use safe and respectful language.<br />

NCEA Whānau Hui<br />

On Wednesday we had a lovely evening for our yr 11-13 ākonga and their whānau to meet with<br />

our kaiako and discuss their NCEA achievement for <strong>2021</strong> and beyond.<br />

This evening was about encouraging our ākonga and whānau to celebrate where they have come<br />

from and where they are going. The atmosphere was positive and mana enhancing, and all of our<br />

kaimahi and ākonga left with greater clarity about what they are achieving in<br />

<strong>2021</strong>.<br />

The Year 7 - 10 Whānau hui is on the 24 <strong>March</strong> 4 - 7 pm in Te Tai O Mahaanui<br />

(the main building)<br />
