Research

shows

high tide

increase

NEW RESEARCH has found

the biggest increase in high tide

levels across Christchurch is at

the Ferrymead Bridge.

The maximum increase was

84mm.

This, alongside other new

high tide statistics, has provided

the city council with a greater

understanding of the flood risk

in Christchurch’s tidal areas.

Engineering consultancy GHD

Christchurch, in collaboration

with Netherlands-based flood

risk experts HKV, put the

statistics together using advanced

analysis that looks at sea level

influences.

These include weather patterns,

such as significant rainfall events,

sea-level rise, and the effects of

wind and waves on the sea. The

companies were commissioned

by the city council, which hopes

to understand the frequency

of high water levels at various

locations around the city.

The research shows a slightly

higher water level for most

high tide levels than was

calculated when the statistics for

Christchurch were last reviewed

in 2018.

Former chaplain honoured for sport

SERVICE:

Janice

Stead was a

Canterbury

and New

Zealand senior

women’s

cricket

representative

and a

volunteer

chaplain

FROM CHURCH chaplaincy

to representing New Zealand

cricket on a global scale,

Reverend Janice Stead has

worn many hats throughout

her life.

But it is sport, particularly

cricket, that the Parklands

resident has had a keen eye on

from a young age.

It was only natural that

the passion grew onto other

family members – younger

brother David Stead was a

former Canterbury cricketer

and her nephew, Gary Stead,

coaches the Black Caps.

A lifetime of being involved

in cricket at all levels and

promoting the women’s game

was why she was named a

member of the New Zealand

Order of Merit, for services to

sport and the community.

Not only has she been a

player herself representing

New Zealand in nine tests

between 1966 and 1972, touring

Australia, South Africa

and England, but she has also

been a commentator, selector

and administrator.

Following her playing days,

she provided television and

radio commentary, helping to

promote women’s cricket to a

wider community.

Stead was on the Canterbury

women’s cricket

executive and is a life member

of the Canterbury Cricket

Association.

She was also involved in

table tennis as a player, umpire,

and administrator. She

was on the Canterbury table

tennis committee for more

than 25 years and made a life

member of the association in

2000.

Stead represented New

Zealand in table tennis during

the Australian veteran’s

championships from 1989 to

2000, and managed the team

from 2001 to 2009.

In 1989 she umpired for

the World Deaf Table Tennis

Games when it was held in

Christchurch.

Stead was also a volunteer

chaplain for the Windsor

Care Retirement Village

and Alpine View Life Care,

retiring in 2019.

Making sure rivers are ‘flowing free’

• By Bea Gooding

HUGH CANARD has been on a

four-decade mission to save New

Zealand’s rivers.

A passion for water conservation

evolved during his childhood

when all his favourite

rivers that he loved to swim and

kayak in were turned into lakes

to make way for dams. Questioning

everything ever since,

he dedicated his life to ensuring

people and authorities are honest

about the consequences of their

actions on the environment. And

it was why he was made an Officer

of the New Zealand Order

of Merit for services to conservation

and paddle sports in the

Queen’s Birthday Honours.

“I’m really thrilled and thankful

for all the people I met along

the way and supported me,” he

said.

Canard was president of

Whitewater New Zealand Inc

from 1980 to 1990 and has been

its patron since 1992.

He is a member of the

Canterbury Regional Water

Committee and contributed to

policy forums, providing guidance

to members responsible for

representing the interests of paddle

sports, river recreation and

conservation throughout New

Zealand.

Canard has also led hundreds

of amateur kayaking and rafting

trips for the Canterbury Whitewater

Club.

Over the past 40 years, he has

been instrumental in securing

Water Conservation Orders on

the Kawarau, Buller, Grey, Rangitata

and Mohaka rivers.

But it did not stop there – he

has either been a member or

chairman of numerous organisations

nationwide, including the

Nelson-Marlborough Conservation

Board, National Water

ADVENTURE: Hugh Canard on the Waiatoto River on the West Coast.

Strategy Working Group, and

the Packrafting Association of

New Zealand.

Canard developed certificates

and codes of practice for the Sea

Kayak Operators Association,

which he helped establish, and

helped purchase land by the

Buller River in order to retain

public access.

But most of all, his proudest

achievement was “the fact that

some really big rivers are still

there and flowing free” and

having a hand in making sure it

stays that way.

He said it has become much

easier than it was 20 years ago to

have conversations with people

like irrigators around taking care

of waterways. He said society is

starting to care more about the

natural world.

“There’s no money in leaving a

river alone,” said Canard.

“We all drink water and flush

the toilet, so we need to think

about where it comes from, the

consequences of our actions and

be honest about them.”

mitre 10 mega ferrymead

lend a helping hand

BeFore

during

in may we lent a helping hand to the Bridge

hub and helped build a 100-metre-long fence.

The Bridge Hub used to be a church but after the

earthquakes became un-used. The vision of The Bridge Hub

is to be a soon to be event venue offering all kinds of things

like yoga, tai chi, a cappella singing, a space for an art gallery,

a wellness center, a hall for hire for private and public events,

a communal space and so much more! One problem they

found after the earthquakes was that a lot of South New

Brighton local facilities got removed and so locals needed

a new spot to meet and do activities, and this is how The

Bridge Hub all started.

Avon Dickie Construction were the lead builders on the day, guiding

our team while we assisted with framing up the fence. It was a day

full of very hard work and it’s so rewarding to see that it’s paid off.

The day started by meeting outside of our store and then driving

down to the site. We then had a team meeting with our team, the

builders and Steve the project manager of the bridge hub. We went

over health and safety and a plan for the day. We started out by using

the post hole borer to dig the holes for the fence post. We then lined

up and braced the fence posts, then once they were straight, we set

them with concrete. Then in the weekend a group of volunteers went

along and put all the palings on.

As you can see the finished result is amazing! We are very happy with

how it turned out. We can’t wait to see what The Bridge Hub turns

out like when it’s all complete!

Museum memories: The netball team

that produced future Silver Ferns

The New Brighton

Museum has a rich

history spanning for

than 100 years. Peggy

Butterfield writes

monthly about the

historical display at the

heritage museum.

OUR DISPLAY this month

features the Kakatai Basketball

Club.

The club began in 1946

by Mildred Tregurtha (née

Marks), known as Mick. Mick

was a Canterbury basketball

representative, and she formed

the club.

The name “kakatai” was

suggested by musician Tommy

Kahi and means “seabirds.” The

name was changed in the 1960s

to New Brighton Netball Club.

The club had a proud history,

producing several Silver Ferns,

the most notable being Judy

Dunlop (née Blair) who started

her basketball career in the

1950s,

260

and went on to represent

x 180

Canterbury and captain the

Silver Ferns.

Judy Blair was made a Mem-

and Pauline.

ber of the New Zealand Order of

Merit (MNZM) in 2006. Judy’s

daughter Belinda also played for

the Silver Ferns.

Uniforms consisted of

sensible-length gym frocks, the

length being censored by having

the girls kneel down and see that

nothing intimate was on display

when they jumped.

Good sensible black stockings

were held up by a suspender belt,

with cover-all black bloomers.

But this attracted numerous

male sideline spectators

at Hagley Park on a Saturday,

who would just go for a glimpse

of the upper leg when the girls

jumped for goals.

Mick Tregurtha was so dedicated

to her club, and it was said

that because she was such a good

coach, players from other clubs

transferred to Kakatai to gain

from her leadership.

Sadly Mick got very ill with

cancer. While in hospital for

treatment, she made her husband,

Tom, wheel her over to the

netball courts to watch her team.

Mick was only 36 when

she died, leaving three young

children, Brian, Wayne

New literacy initiative for 5-year-olds

now at Christchurch schools

A NEW approach to how fiveyear-olds

are taught to read is

helping raise the literacy skills

of Canterbury children, and it

has already made its way into

Northcote and Burnside primary

schools.

More than 450 teachers and

literacy specialists nationwide

are taking part in the better start

literacy approach, developed by

the Child Well-Being Research

Institute at Canterbury University.

Pene Balk-Jarvis, a teacher

with more than 30 years’ experience,

is training as a BSLA

facilitator and is supporting four

teachers at Northcote.

The programme is now being

rolled out in classes across the

country, reaching more than

4500 children in their first year

of school.

Northcote principal Justin Perriam

said the school got involved

after noticing a steady decrease

in 6-year net scores - a measure

of a student’s grasp of basic reading

and writing concepts and

skills after a year at school.

“We knew that our current

practice was not working so we

RESOURCE: A new approach to how five-year-olds are taught to read has been

started to look around for different

options,” he said.

“BSLA is giving us the

opportunity to try a different

approach to support our ākonga

with their literacy learning. It’s

not a case of throwing out our

current practice, but of enhancing

the good practice we do with a

different lens.”

Perriam is now seeing high

levels of engagement from the

pupils who are keen to share

their knowledge and clearly see

themselves as learners.

“They have found both the

whole class and smaller group

activities to be achievable and

of high interest. The lessons are

fast-paced, meaning the students

are not getting bored.”

The BSLA is based on research

evidence of the most effective

methods to teach children lettersound

knowledge, phonological

awareness, vocabulary, oral

narrative, word reading and

spelling.

The approach uses quality

children’s storybooks and fun,

game-based phoneme awareness

activities to build these critical

foundational skills.

The research trials, which have

been published internationally,

demonstrated that the approach

significantly improves children’s

early reading spelling and

vocabulary development to

a greater extent than typical

classroom practice.

It is particularly helpful for

children who enter school with

lower levels of oral language

skills and helps them catch up to

their peers.

Across the city, facilitator

Trudi Browne is supporting four

teachers at Burnside Primary

School.

She said the school got

involved as they were keen to

give tamariki the best possible

start in their learning.

“Our tamariki have embraced

the approach as much as we, as

kaiako, have. They are bringing

along their reading folders, keen

to find out what their next learning

is.”

Browne said the children are

engaged and are reading at a

higher level than before.

When your brand includes the top Harcourts

office out of 900 around the world in addition

to the top franchise in the South Island for

income per sales consultant, it’s clear that

you’ve got an extraordinary team.

So for these consultants to earn the position of one

of the top fifteen real estate sales consultants at

Harcourts gold is truly a remarkable achievement.

They are phenomenally good at what they do;

skilled, highly trained and dedicated to delivering

exceptional results for property owners. I am

extremely proud to work with these real estate

professionals.

AUTOMOTIVE PROFESSIONALS

PEGASUS POST

Customers pleased with honest,

reliable vehicle servicing

Having your vehicle regularly serviced is

key to getting the best out of it in terms of

fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear

on expensive parts.

Kevin, who owns and operates Parker

Automotive in Birmingham Drive,

provides full vehicle servicing to keep your

vehicle running smoothly, as well as WOFs,

batteries and tyres.

He also carries out all mechanical repairs,

including cam belt replacement, suspension

work, clutch and gearbox repairs, only

repairing what’s necessary, and without

charging the earth.

He has owned the business since 2007,

and over that time has established a loyal

customer base – people that rely on him

to give them sound advice and provide

professional care and servicing for their

vehicles.

Customers come from across the city,

Spreydon, Hillmorton, Riccarton, Halswell

and Middleton areas, and the business has

received many positive Google reviews

from customers. Below are some examples:

I have been going to Parker Automotive

for the last eight years and I cannot fault the

service. The mechanical work has been top

notch! If you want top service and value for

money I recommend Parker Automotive. –

Daniel Jay

basic servicing and warrants through to

major work like clutches, replacement

coilovers and bushings. Kevin is a very

honest guy who gets the job done in a very

timely manor and he has outstanding

communication. The overall service I’ve

received is excellent. – Lachlan Poole

I know it’s not always about price but

sometimes, when it comes to vehicle repairs,

you just want a perceived good deal and work

carried out by someone who seems to care.

Kevin came recommended by a friend, and

what a great recommendation. His work was

clean, efficient, fast and came in under what

I thought it was going to cost. So we took my

partner’s car there two days later and that

too was completed faster than we expected

and at an almost unbelievable cost.

Give Parker Automotive a shot next

time you need something done. Kevin

is a nice fella too, win win. – Mark

Lewis

Earlier this year, Parker Automotive

moved from premises on the Lincoln

and Torrens roads corner to a new site

at 23B Birmingham Drive, Middleton.

Opening hours are Monday to

Friday 7.30am-4pm, Saturday 8am-

12pm. So give Kevin a call on 982

4268, or pop in and he will be happy

to help with all your vehicle servicing

needs.
