Dispute

over how

safe it is

to live in

Parklands

• By Bea Gooding

GRANT DONNELL thinks police

need to “open their eyes” if they

believe youth offending has not

increased in Parklands.

Police say the suburb is statistically

a safe community to live in,

but a 2000-signature strong petition

started by Donnell to

address the problem

suggested otherwise.

The petition was presented

to the Coastal-

Burwood Community

Board this week, which

asked the city council

to install crime prevention

cameras in problem

areas.

The hotspots included the

Parklands Reserve, Parklands

Grant

Donnell

Community Centre and the Travis

Wetlands walking trail car parks on

Mairehau Rd.

But police say there is no indication

reported crime has increased in

the Parklands area.

Said Senior Sergeant Phil Newton:

“We are aware of the concerns people

have expressed on social media,

but there is no evidence to suggest

they’re more likely to experience

crime in Parklands than they are in

any other suburb. • Turn to page 5

Popular book sale a haven for all

AT NEARLY 90, Elizabeth

Williams helps oversee the

volunteers running the Big

Bargain Book Sale at the Pioneer

Recreation and Sport Centre this

month.

She is a member of the

160-strong team – covering a

range of ages and interests – collectively

known as the Friends of

Christchurch City Libraries.

Each year, up to 40 friends

from “across the generations”

unpack, display and help sell

thousands of books and magazines

that have been withdrawn

from library collections.

After 30 years, the oldest

and newest life member of the

Friends has opted to leave the

book sale to the younger volunteers.

Member Barbara Clarke said

that the group is involved in

many areas of library life but is

always looking for new members.

“We have such a range of

people involved, including those

who help out with our popular

book sale, which attracts thousands

of people every year,” said

Clarke, a former librarian.

“The first book sale organised

by the group was held at the

(now demolished) King Edward

Barracks in the central city in

1989.

“Today, we have about 6000

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

Bargain Book Sale.

people browsing the annual

Big Bargain Book Sale items

over two days at the Pioneer

Centre.”

She pins the ongoing success

of the sale on “everyone’s love of

a bargain and the opportunity to

purchase ex-library stock at very

reasonable prices.”

“Bargain hunters can purchase

for their specialist interest areas;

gather books and magazines for

the bach; select children’s picture

books, easy and longer reads and

interesting non-fiction; and also

choose from large print, graphic

novels and a huge assortment of

novels and non-fiction.”

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said that the Friends

of the Library is an “invaluable

resource.”

“The volunteers really drive

the book sale, ensuring everything

is well set out and that the

sale days go amazingly well,” she

said.

“They constantly replenish the

stock throughout both days so

it does not matter when anyone

arrives, there are always more

bargains on the tables.’’

Set up in 1988, the Friends

provide a monthly programme

of book talks with local authors,

and raises funds for a range of

items, such as chairs for older

people, art, digital cameras,

wheelchairs and special book

trolleys.

This year’s sale will take place

at Pioneer Stadium tomorrow

from 9am to 7pm and on

Saturday, from 9am to 4pm.

Pupils

rewarded for

summertime

reading

TAKING PART in the city

council libraries’ annual

Summertime Reading challenge

paid off for a number of pupils

across the city, including at

Bromley School.

Participating Bromley pupils all

received book packs from Wheelers

Books – a school library

supplier – for the challenge which

celebrates the joy of reading,

encouraging people of all ages to

simply pick up a book and read

over the summer holidays.

It also paid off for 279 Redwood

Primary School pupils,

who each received a Cookie Time

treat for their efforts last week.

Said Sandra Matai, the school’s

librarian: “They’re [the pupils] are

quite excited, every single student

got one, including a gift basket for

staff. It’s great that it was schoolwide.”

The challenge took place from

the beginning of December last

year to the end of February.

Children under 13-years-old

were encouraged to read at least

three books and describe what

they thought about each book

using three adjectives.

‘Police need to open their eyes and listen to the community’

• From page 1

“In terms of what is being

reported, it is the same kind of

volume crimes you would expect

in any metro suburb. Statistically

speaking, it is a safe community

to live in.”

Newton said reported victimisation

was down in the area over

the past three years, compared to

the three years prior.

“This could be for one or two

reasons – either crime is on the

decrease, or people aren’t reporting

crime,” Newton said.

However, Donnell begged to

differ.

He said police would not have

stepped up their presence in

the area recently if there was

nothing to suggest the issue had

worsened.

In the last three weeks, he said

Parklands went from not seeing

any police to sometimes observing

“15 cop cars a day,” which has

led to fewer incidents and “made

people feel safer.”

Incidents allegedly included

assault with knives, theft, car

break-ins and selling drugs

primarily involving 10, 12 and

sometimes 18-year-olds, but

Donnell did not rule out older

offenders.

“If the cops don’t think there’s

a problem, then they need to

open their eyes and listen to the

community,” said the Parklands

resident.

“There wouldn’t be an outcry

if there was nothing going on in

the community. The community

wouldn’t be organising a meeting

with more than 150 people if

there wasn’t a problem.”

A meeting is scheduled for next

month where residents, schools,

community groups, business

owners, city council staff and

police are expected to attend.

Coastal Ward councillor James

Daniels shared the community’s

concerns having been through it

himself.

“I’ve been burgled, I’ve had

my car broken into at the Fresh

Choice car park and a lot of stuff

was taken. It’s unacceptable and

something needs to be done

about it,” said Daniels.

But he agreed with police that

the issues were not exclusive to

Parklands.

“It’s not the only place where

this happens. But it’s a perception

thing, [the offending] is in your

face because it’s in our place.”

Newton said Local Youth Aid

and Community officers are

engaging youth in the area who

were alleged to have committed

an offence and future community

engagement was anticipated.

In the meantime, there were

many simple messages the public

could do to help prevent themselves

from becoming a victim of

crime.

“A message we would like to

emphasise to the community is

to please ensure your vehicle is

locked and expensive items are

not left in your car, or outside

your property, in plain sight,”

said Newton.

“Police would like to remind

anyone who witnesses any

suspicious activity to report it

and remember the rules – if

it’s happening now call 111

or if it’s historic, dial 105 or

Crimestoppers anonymously on

0800 555 111.”

•The community meeting

will be held on April 8 from

7pm at the Pūkeko Centre,

30 Chadbury St.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

and only pay $50 on that treament.

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

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

Genealogy a passion and an addiction

• By Bea Gooding

“IF YOU figure there are 25

years between a generation,

then 500 years ago there were

1,048,576 people involved in

creating us.”

For Fiona Lees, getting to the

bottom of her family roots was

like an addiction.

Just like the women who established

the NZ Society of Genealogists,

the Canterbury branch

convener has been hungry to

learn more about her origins

since she was a teenager.

The first generation mainlander

born to Scottish parents

started feeding her passion for

family history after conversations

with her grandmother led

to more questions than answers.

She started to connect the

dots in her little notebook full

of important dates to determine

“whose brother was who,” later

growing into a passion to help

others trace their roots.

“I’ve managed to prove that

one [family] line was an adopted

line through records and oldstyle

sleuthing,” said Lees who

described her most rewarding

discoveries.

“I’ve also managed to prove

that my family was shipwrecked

in 1862 off the Isle of Wight in

the United Kingdom. The Times

in London gave my ancestors’

names.

“It’s a passion and addiction –

once you’ve been bitten, that’s it.”

The society, based in Auckland,

has promoted the study

of family history and genealogies

since 1967, providing the

necessary tools and expertise

for others to make their own

discoveries.

The late Lucy Marshall and her

friends had a shared curiosity

about their ancestors and eventually

started a group.

More than 50 years later, it

morphed into a national society

and has since grown into more

than 60 regional branches across

the country.

Established in 1968, that makes

the Canterbury regional branch

the oldest in New Zealand.

Lees was appointed the Canterbury

convener in July last year

and has been on the committee

for more than 10 years. But her

involvement spans back to the

1980s.

Retiring last year, she worked

for the city council for 35 years

as a technical application specialist

helping internal staff with

their computers.

As the convener, she puts

together monthly newsletters,

deals with memberships and

transcribes school records for

future genealogists as it was an

“underused” record in NZ.

“In Britain, there are census

records with raw data being kept

where you can track your family

every 10 years,” she said.

“But in NZ, governments saw

fit not to keep that raw data and

only had summaries on how

many people lived in suburbs.

School records tell you where

you’ve come from, who your

guardians are, your age, and

where you’re going to next –

you can track a family through

there.”

Based at the Parklands Community

Centre, the society had

many resources on hand including

a branch library, computers,

paper records, parish registers

and monumental inscriptions.

People can become members

and connect with other family

history enthusiasts nationwide to

share tips and tricks on research

methods.

“We encourage people who

come to the library to have the

basics about yourself, your parents

and grandparents, it’s good

to have a skeleton tree. Otherwise

by the time they’ve talked

for five minutes you’ve lost all

the information,” Lees said.

for hungry-to-learn Fiona

NUMBER ONE SUPPLIER

TO THE NZ JET BOATING

COMMUNITY FOR OVER

50 YEARS

“We have people rock up and

say: ‘I want to learn more about

my family, I think they came

from Denmark.’ So people

who are interested in searching

that area have a meeting, share

ideas and tips on how or where

to find things.”

The process was not always

simple seeing as 80 per cent

of information could not be

found online, but having the

internet nonetheless definitely

made things easier.

“We used to have to go and

write letters, visit places to get

information but now you’ve

got lots of information online,”

she said.

But most genealogists were

not interested in just a list of

facts – the importance of social

history built a much better picture

of how that person lived.

Putting the facts together

and shaping it into a story

“makes it far more fun.”

“It’s always nice to put your

person in a place with what

else was happening in the

world at that time. A list of

facts is a bit boring,” she said.

“Most of the real genealogists

aren’t just interested in

names and the date of birth,

marriage and death. They

actually want to learn more

about people, what they did,

where they lived and why they

shifted countries.”

Over the years, the branch

has seen a rise in people wanting

to know more about where

they came from through the

avenue of DNA testing.

“We’re also finding people

are related to each other within

the branch through DNA

which is fun,” she said.

But DNA testing did not

always have the most desirable

results.

Although people could trace

their ethnicity or find birth

families if they were adopted,

finding out they were not

related to someone was “devastating.”

“There are brick walls that

will never be solved,” Lees

said.

“But for some people, the

downside with DNA is showing

that who you thought was

your father, actually wasn’t.

That has been really devastating.”

Lees shares her addiction of

family history with her husband,

David, throughout 40

years of marriage.

The mutual understanding

meant date nights were a little

more interesting in odd places

like cemeteries and libraries.

For Lees, that passion was

wanting to know more about

where she came from and what

influences made her the person

she is today,

But knowing your roots can

also be essential to one’s own

survival.

“For some, it might even be

a health component. Heart

attacks, strokes or Alzheimer’s

might run in the family.

Looking at what people died

of might be a push for some

people.”

Lincoln High School A last week. After some good

performances, Shirley finished the three-day

tournament fifth overall, with Lincoln coming in

school indoor volleyball championships held at

Pioneer Recreation & Sport Centre and Cowles

Stadium. Twenty boys and 29 girls teams from

secondary schools around Canterbury entered the

tournament, aimed at year 11-13 players. The event

provided a good warm-up for the winning teams

going on to compete at the national championships

in Palmerston North later this month.

HOME & HEATING

The facts about home ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to

forced, or mechanical, ventilation over

opening windows, including warmth,

security, reduction of outside noises and

reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems

has to be heated

or cooled to keep

the house warm in

winter or cool in

summer.

The Smooth-

Air HEX390 is a

‘balanced pressure’

system. It extracts

air from the house

and at the same

time brings in

fresh air. These

two streams of air

pass through a heat

exchanger, which

warms incoming air in winter and cools in

summer if air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of the energy

which would be wasted using a traditional

positive pressure system is recovered,

resulting in significant energy savings and

therefore lower heating or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.

You can contact Smooth-Air on sales@

smooth-air.co.nz or 0800 SMOOTH.

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.

Covid-19 prompts call for

zero per cent rates increase

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

and James Daniels have sent a

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

Manukura Kōrero

Whāia e koe te iti kahurangi. Ki te tuohu me he maunga teitei

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

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

leader look like?” An answer to that question can be found in American

civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. On August 28, 1963 King led

a March on Washington, demanding civil and economic rights, jobs and

freedom for Black Americans. His speech called for an end to racism in the

United States. There are always going to be leaders who stand up for what

is right and just.

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

is first and foremost about service. It requires an individual to be

selfless. It requires real humility, but most importantly it requires courage.

Every ākonga at Haeata is expected to show leadership. A Haeata leader is

bold and resolute, forward thinking, an individual who is unflinching, unwavering

and focussed on the task at hand. A person who lives and breathes

our values and dispositions. Who knows the importance of service before

self!

As leaders we do not always have to be the loudest, or to be standing at

the front. We do not have to be controlling

- that is not true leadership. Leadership is

humility, kindness, patience, courage and

compromise. A true Haeata leader is a

fearless person who sets clear, achievable

goals and systematically achieves them. A

true Haeata leader models angitu/success.

As Manukura/Principal of Haeata I have a

real sense of pride in our āknoga.

They are leaders and they will change and

shape the future. They will make this world

a kinder, safer place.

Kia kaha, kia toa, kia manawanui!

Dr. Peggy Burrows

Manukura

KAMAR Portal

The Haeata Kamar Portal is now open!

This handy app is a great way for you to engage with your

children’s attendance across the school, and learning in

the senior school (yr 9-13).

Contact your ākonga’s Puna Ako teacher to find your log

in, or call reception for extra support in setting this up.

Haeata Tikanga

One of our Raukura (Assistant Principal), Jess Kakoi, has been

hard at work over the last year developing our School Tikanga

alongside a team of kaimahi.

He Korowai Manaaki is the Haeata Community Campus purpose

built positive behaviour management system. This includes how

our ākonga manage themselves and how kaimahi support all

ākonga to be safe at school.

The Tikanga in the attached photo were developed in consultation

with ākonga, kaimahi and whānau, and reflect a Te Ao Māori

world view, giving clear guidelines to what is expected.

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

and develop something like He Korowai Manaaki!

Ko Haeata Tatou!

When I come home to Haeata :

I WILL BE SAFE AND SUCCESSFUL WHEN I…

•ARRIVE on time and actively participate.

• SHOW respect for ALL.

• ALWAYS use safe and respectful language.

• NEVER physically or verbally abuse ANYONE.

• ALWAYS am in the right place, at the right tie, with the right gear.

• FOLLOW all reasonable requests made of me.

• DON’T use drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or harmful substances when I am at Haeata.

• USE digital technology appropriately at all times at Haeata.

• ASK confident questions and give considered answers.

• AM a Kaitiaki for Haeata.

NCEA Whānau Hui

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

our kaiako and discuss their NCEA achievement for 2021 and beyond.

This evening was about encouraging our ākonga and whānau to celebrate where they have come

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

kaimahi and ākonga left with greater clarity about what they are achieving in

2021.

The Year 7 - 10 Whānau hui is on the 24 March 4 - 7 pm in Te Tai O Mahaanui
