SPORTS CLUBS can’t

operate without hard

working volunteers and good

administrators.

The Carlton Redcliffs

Hockey Club is no different.

It is one of Canterbury’s

best run sports clubs, and

was also recently judged the

best hockey club in New

Zealand. And that’s because

it has all of the qualities mentioned

above and more.

Today we profile club president

Caleb Ballin (page 14)

who took over the role from

the legendary Pat Barwick in

February last year.

Ballin details his time in

the sport and at the club, the

highlights and how family is

so important.

Nurturing kids into the

game and ensuring they can

afford to play is vital to Ballin

and Carlton Redcliffs’ sporting

DNA.

That makes for a great

sports club.

THOUSANDS OF daffodils

are being planted to brighten

up Lyttelton’s two earthquakedamaged

cemeteries.

The city council’s community

parks manager Al Hardy said

the council had already planted

20,000 grand monarch daffodil

bulbs in the Lyttelton Anglican

Cemetery and are planting

20,000 daffodils bulbs in the

Lyttelton Catholic and Public

Cemetery this month.

The bulbs will flower later this

winter or early spring.

Hardy said the 40,000

daffodil bulbs cost $18,000 and

were funded through the city

council’s community parks

green asset renewal programme.

The daffodil planting initiative

was proposed by the city

council’s in-house cemetery

maintenance team in December

2019.

The daffodils will “lift the

appearance, increase amenity

value and introduce more colour

into our cemeteries,” Hardy said.

There have been 3800 burials

within both cemeteries and

95 per cent of the burials are

classified as heritage which are

burials dating pre-1950.

Hardy said the daffodils are

not being planted to mitigate the

severe earthquake damage in

the two cemeteries that have not

had any repair work from the

council.

The city council inspected

all cemeteries after the

earthquakes to ensure they were

in safe condition for visitors.

Monuments and headstones

deemed “unsafe” were laid flat

on the ground, Hardy said.

Broken monuments,

headstones and concrete kerbing

are still lying on the hillsides of

both Lyttelton cemeteries.

Veterans’ Affairs deputy head

Marti Eller said the organisation

had been in discussion with

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

the city council since 2014

over repairing the 50 damaged

soldiers’ graves in the Lyttelton

Catholic and Public

Cemetery.

“Veterans’ Affairs

has always been ready

to support the repair of

the [soldiers’] graves at

Lyttelton,” she said.

Lyttelton Reverend John

McLister said some of

the graves in the cemeteries had

been in a “shocking state” since

the earthquakes. He had been

concerned for several

years about the damage to the

soldiers’ graves.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board member Reuben

Davidson said it was

“disappointing” that the

cemeteries were still in a

state of disrepair and it

would be good to see a plan

from the city council on how

they intend to repair them.

Banks Peninsula Ward

city councillor and Deputy

Mayor Andrew Turner said

repairing cemetery gravestones

was “detailed, specialised

work that needs to be done by

professionals which means it’s

not cheap.”

Turner said the city council

was constantly reminded by

communities that they needed to

be frugal with finances.

It was about finding the “right

balance” but said finding a longterm

solution to repairing the

cemeteries needed to be found.

It would require some funds

to be put on budget by the city

council “when we’re through

some of the particular constraints

we have at the moment.”

Rugby player’s death sparks mental

• By Matt Slaughter

TANE HIPANGO’S twin

brother Tama never talked to

him or anyone else much about

his struggles.

But, these struggles got the

better of Tama, a Lyttelton Rugby

Club division four player, in

December, when

he succumbed to

mental illness at

age 31.

Now, determined

to not

see other club

Tama

Hipango

members suffer

in silence, committee

member

Aaron Stevens

and coach Joseph Tyro ran a

workshop on Friday for players

and coaches to discuss their mental

struggles and arm them with

methods to cope.

The workshop was funded

by New Zealand Rugby and

hosted by social worker Kereama

Carmody. It was part of a pilot

programme it is hoped may

expand Canterbury and New

Zealand-wide.

Hipango thinks an initiative

like this may have helped his

brother through his battle.

“We would talk not every

day, but honestly, almost every

second or third day we’d call on

the phone, and we would talk

about kind of nothing. We’d talk

mostly about rugby, I suppose, to

be honest, and the last text message

I got from him was about

rugby,’’ he said.

“He never talked to me about

his feelings.

“A rugby club is a community

space for all kinds of people, and

especially those who are, apparently,

at risk. It is men, young

men in that age bracket from all

kinds of walks of life. Having an

initiative like that, it brings so

much hope. It’s the right thing in

the right place.”

Hipango said Tama was

“extremely kind,” “an awesome

brother” and was loved by his

family. He wrote poetry in his

spare time, some of which, in

hindsight, he believes was about

his struggles.

The first time Hipango heard

Tama was struggling, was from

Stevens, who helped get Tama to

hospital just in time to save his

life after a suspected attempted

suicide in June.

Stevens said, at the club’s first

well-being workshop on Friday, a

coaches were asked how many

had considered suicide and 20

put their hands up.

Said Stevens: “[Hearing] people

that I said were hard men, hardened

rugby players, openly talking

about their well-being, I was

really proud of those boys, eh.”

Stevens battled anxiety himself,

after suffering a brain bleed as a

result of hitting his head during a

rugby game three years ago.

“I’d never had anxiety in my

life, I hadn’t suffered from depression,

but I banged my head

and because I had strength and

weakness around the wrong way,

I thought being a tough man was

to [say] it will come right, harden

up, but it didn’t.

“The first time I knew I had

anxiety, I didn’t know what it

was. I thought I was having a

stroke . . . I ended up in A&E,

which resulted in a whole lot of

other therapy.”

Tyro, who works in the health

sector, said his a message for

rugby players is “it’s okay not to

be okay.”

He said traditional stereotypes

about rugby players

having to be staunch and

harden up when faced with

adversity need to change.

“Concussion is one of

the big challenges and

also the stereotypes of

traditional rugby in the

days of that culture – you

don’t talk about your feelings,

that harden-up kind

of attitude. We’re trying

to change that kind of

stereotype and, usually,

the alcohol [consumption]

after games and all that.”

Tyro said key focus is

also to help players cope

with mental challenges

caused by factors like

Covid-19, the earthquakes

and social media.

Said Christchurch sports

Graeme Clarke: “Generally

Harbour’s wharf as part of the

Long Distance Swimming Club’s

mid-winter event.

Said Diamond Harbour resident

Michael O’Neill: “It was a

great dip in the rain.”

Prior to entering the water, resident

and founding member of

the event Mike Hosted discussed

the International Ice Swimming

Association’s Ice Mile – known

as “the ultimate achievement of

swimming in ice waters.”

Hosted described the ice mile

as swimming one mile in water

of 5 deg C or less, with advice

from the swimming association,

“enter the water gradually – do

not dive in.”

Point Club’s annual Polar Plunge in Lyttelton.

Swimmers brave cold for winter dip

He then passed over his own

advice to the Diamond Harbour

participants: “Run down the

wharf, jump off jetty, swim for

steps, run up steps, drink lots of

gluhwein.

“One would have to be bonkers

to swim a mile in mid-winter,”

he said.

At Naval Point, another 50

hardy people took part in the

Naval Point Club’s annual Polar

Plunge, pitching into Lyttelton’s

surrounding waters.

The Sumner mid-winter swim

will be held on July 4.

Organiser Julie Zarifeh said:

“The event has a great vibe and

it is a great, fun thing to do with

family and friends, engendering

much positivity.

“Simply put, it makes you feel

great,” she said.

For those eager to participate

Zarifeh said to meet at the

Esplanade end of Hardwicke St

at 11am on July 4.

Incident illustrates

the dangers

faced by police

• From page 1

He has been remanded in custody

and will re-appear in court in

early July.

The incident took place just two

days before to the anniversary of

the death of Constable Matthew

Hunt who was shot and killed on

June 19, 2020.

Hunt was killed during a routine

traffic stop in Massey, Auckland.

Another officer was seriously

injured.

Eli Bob Sauna Epiha, has been

accused of killing Hunt and is set

to stand trial on charges of murder

and attempted murder at the High

Court next week.

Peoples said this and the

Lyttelton incident illustrates the

current dangers faced by the

police.

“Generally speaking, criminals

involved in the drug scene are

known to arm themselves for

protection against the threat

of being ‘ripped off’ by other

criminals.

“Police are keen to identify

criminal elements, especially those

dealing drugs and in possession

of firearms so that we can remove

these risks to our community,”

Peoples said.

He encourages anyone who

has information regarding such

matters to contact the police or to

make an anonymous report via the

Crimestoppers website.

Cabbage trees replaced

TREE WARRIORS: Oliver Lewis and a team of volunteers braved the rain on Sunday to

plant 24 cabbage trees, replacing the ones that had been poisoned in 2018. ​

• By Samantha Mythen

DRIZZLING RAIN and cold

weather did not prevent 30

volunteers from planting more

than 300 natives and 24 cabbage

trees along the Coastal Pathway

on Sunday.

Oliver Lewis, who has a passion

for cabbage trees, had set

up a fundraiser to replace the

24 that were poisoned along the

Coastal Pathway in 2018. Nearly

$800 was raised.

The person who poisoned the

trees has never been identified.

“I’m really happy the trees are

back in their rightful place and I

can’t wait to see them mature in

the years to come,” said Lewis.

Christchurch Coastal Pathway

Group chairman Hanno Sander

said: “The cabbage trees look

great and I think they will make

a good addition to the Coastal

Pathway.”

The other native plants were

bought from money raised by

the Coastal Pathway Group. The

plants were supplied by Trees 4

Canterbury.

“This planting was a wonderful

demonstration of the passion

the neighbours of the Coastal

Pathway have for their area,” said

Sander.

Said Lewis: “Lots of passing

motorists tooted in support, so

I just hope the groundswell of

enthusiasm for the project shows

people who think they can mess

with public trees that they’re on

the wrong side of history.”

Sensors cause

Dyers Pass delays

• By Samantha Mythen

CONTINUING frustration from

drivers about road works on

Dyers Pass has resulted in action

from the city council.

Added delays to travel times

over Dyers Pass Rd have been

caused by road users not activating

traffic light sensors.

To address this, city council

head of transport Lynette Ellis

said it is adding a painted limit

line and signage to assist people

with stopping in the right place,

so the lights are activated.

There is also a phone number

that anyone who has problems

with the traffic lights can call.

Governors Bay residents have

been posting on social media to

let others know when the traffic

lights have stalled.

Ellis said some of the recent

delays occurred when a rock hit

and severed a traffic light cable,

resulting in a complete outage.

“The traffic management team

responded to that by getting a

stop/go system

operating while

the lights were

fixed,” she said.

Ellis said the

city council had

received about

10 complaints

Lynette Ellis

and queries

about the traffic

lights since the

road works began.

The city council has reinstalled

electronic signs to remind road

users of the delays as contractors

are operating on several longer

work sites.

Uncertain future for

Akaroa’s Yew Cottage

• By Samantha Mythen

YEW COTTAGE in Akaroa

is still set to undergo a full

restoration, but there is an

ongoing conversation about its

long-term future.

The historic building recently

flooded during the bad weather.

In 2019, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board decided to

restore the building at 40 Rue

Jolie and hold on to it, rather

than sell it after it was restored.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said: “The

cottage is a good example of a

period in Akaroa’s history and

the community board would

like to retain this part of the

settlement’s history.”

He said the community

board approved the repair of

Yew Cottage to comply with

residential tenancy standards,

which would enable it to be

leased out as a residential

dwelling.

This repair work involves

lifting the building above flood

levels.

However, last Monday, the

community board discussed

whether this was still the best

option for the future as they had

concerns about the low-lying area

in which the cottage was situated.

Community board

chairwoman Tori Peden said:

“As the cottage is increasingly

vulnerable to flooding and

coastal inundation, we have

asked the city council to look at

the situation again and consider

what is the best option for its

future.”

Rutledge said repair work

has begun to stop the cottage

from deteriorating, yet the full

restoration will not be completed

until the end of 2025 due to

funding availability.

The community board has

requested a new report from

staff reconsidering the

cottage’s future.

A STOAT hit squad has been

established to ramp up efforts

to make Sumner’s backyard

predator-free.

The squad, along with several

other initiatives have been

started by Predator Free Sumner

Bays.

The group was established in

2017 after they received funding

from Predator Free NZ. They

started with backyard trapping

in Balmoral Hill through to

Taylors Mistake, and have now

extended trapping into local

reserves.

One of the group’s

co-ordinators Paul Cragg said

members Mike Ryan and Dave

Evans act as a “hit squad when

stoats are sighted.”

Only two stoats have been

killed so far, but Cragg said they

are encouraging locals to report

any stoat sightings so the group

can keep protecting native birds

in the area.

“We are nowhere near elimination

but we are hopefully

making a difference,” he said.

The group’s work has seen

other success. Two significant

trap lines on the hillsides above

Sumner have trapped 250 possums

over the last two years.

Cragg said the group, made up

of Ryan, Evans, James Young,

David Kerr, Bruce Marks, Sue

Unsworth and John Goodrich,

TIM WRAIGHT New Wood For Old Iron

26 JUNE – 27 JULY

Exhibition at Little River Gallery 26 June – 27 July

Tim Wraight is a musician and artist from

Marahau. He works primarily in carved wood,

a medium he has loved since childhood. As a

child he was surrounded by works created by his

great-great-grandfather John Henry Menzies of

Menzies Bay on Banks Peninsula.

In 1990 he was offered the opportunity to train

with traditional Maori master woodcarver John

Mutu, who he worked with for the rest of that

decade. He still works for iwi in the Nelson/

Golden Bay region making traditional works for

their marae and public art installations.

This has influenced the way he

works since, and although his

personal art practice has

moved away from

the traditional, the

methods and way of

making reflects this

background.

The works for this

show “New Wood

for Old Iron” at Little

River Gallery take old

iron and steel tools

and gift them new

intricately carved and

checks the traps on a daily basis,

come rain or shine.

Another trapping team targets

rats and mice along the Sumner

Esplanade.

In the last four years, Phil

Loughnan and Wyn Mossman

have trapped more than 150 rats.

They are not stopping there with

their next aim to extend the

trapline as far as Shag Rock, or

even further into Moncks Bay

to help protect penguins in the

area.

Residents from Ryman

Healthcare in Rangiora built and

donated wooden trap tunnels for

the project.

Cragg said Barnett Park in

Redcliffs is the latest reserve to

decorated handles. This is his way of honouring

the role these hand tools have shaped our places

and environments in the past, when hard work

with simple but effective tools made our places

and grew our food. It is also a rejection of the

ease with which we now alter our landscapes

with massively powerful machinery and the

damage we can so easily inflict on our fragile

environment.

Tim learnt to use these types

of tools from his grandfather,

an old-time farmer who also

lovingly crafted wonderful

handles for his tools. This

show also honours those who

worked with muscle power

and honed skills to do what

was needed with these tools

to sustain their lives.

focus for June.

Said group co-ordinator

Dave Bryce: “Reducing home

energy reduces power bill

costs, reduces emissions and

results in a warmer healthier

home.”

Bryce suggests making simple

changes at home to lower

your energy use, such as

catching the sun through

optimising north-facing

windows, cleaning

windows and trimming

trees shading them.

He has undertaken

many changes to his

This includes installing

solar water heating panels on

the roof, a high efficiency wood

burner with a wetback for

the water cylinder heater and

insulated floor tiles in sun-strike

areas.

To make changes in your

OUR PEOPLE – CALEB BALLIN

40 years of hockey and still involved

Carlton Redcliffs was

recently awarded New

Zealand Hockey Club

of the Year. Samantha

Mythen talks to

president Caleb Ballin

Tell me about your connection

to Redcliffs?

I grew up way at the top of

Moncks Spur, at the back of

Redcliffs. My first house after I

got married was in Cashmere,

but we then worked our way

around the hills and now we are

back living in Redcliffs.

What makes Redcliffs such a

good place to call home?

It’s the community and for

me, being able to see the water

really makes this area so special.

There’s also a lot of great people

here. It feels like home.

What is your day job?

I wear a few different hats

but one of my main roles

is managing director of a

nationwide project management

company that I founded about

13 years ago. That occupies a

fair bit of my time and then I’m

also involved with property

investment and other bits and

pieces. My first major job was

working on the Christchurch Art

Gallery, I was lucky enough to

get involved in that when I was

about 24.

How would you define

yourself?

I look at myself as a hardworking

person, family focused.

I love sport and I’d like to think

I give back to our community,

such as being involved with

Sumner Surf Lifesaving over the

years and more recently Carlton

Redcliffs Hockey.

Tell me about your hockey

journey; you said you started

when you were a young boy?

What inspired you to start

hockey?

It wasn’t so much something

that inspired me, but when

I went to Redcliffs School, at

the time, you couldn’t really

do anything but play hockey.

There were bins full of hockey

sticks outside the classrooms.

At lunchtime everyone played

hockey. It was a unique period

of time. Redcliffs has since

produced so many great players

and coaches that have played at

the highest level.

Were there many injuries?

Oh absolutely. There were no

mouth guards and shin guards, it

was just playing on the grass.

I rolled my ankle playing a lot of

hockey and so had to get ankle

reconstruction but other than

that, touch wood, nothing too

bad personally.

Did you ever think of pursuing

hockey as a sporting career?

It was always more of a hobby

for me. I played at a reasonable

level but I got really busy with

business and with family. I

finished up hockey when I was

quite young, around 23. This is

an age where most people are

probably playing hockey in their

peak.

SUCCESS: Pat Barwick, Caleb and Miranda Ballin with the New Zealand Hockey Club of the Year trophy.

(Right) – Caleb Ballin in action at the national masters tournament.

Instead, I finished up and had

a bit of a break for five years and

then got back into it.

That was quite cool as I had not

realised how much I had missed

hockey until I got back into

playing again.

How long have you been

president of the Carlton

Redcliffs club?

I started a couple of months

before Covid-19 hit, around

February. Pat Barwick, who was

president for 10 years and has

given so much to the club, is

now focusing on what she really

loves, which is coaching and

mentoring. So, it was my time to

put my hand up and give back.

I joke that Pat took me out for

coffee one day and I unwittingly

agreed to become president

and I don’t quite know how it

happened, but it did.

How long have you been a

member of the club for?

I started playing for Carlton

Redcliffs when I was about five,

so it’s been a few years now,

probably about 40 on and off.

Tell me about the club, it’s

history and it’s members

The club history goes right

back to 1928 when the original

Redcliffs Club was founded.

More recently, we have

amalgamated with the Carlton

Women’s Club forming Carlton

Redcliffs back in 1996. The

club has about 350 people as

members. We are really, really

lucky with the quality of coaches

and people in the club. A lot of

them have played at a high level

and they’ve come back with their

children and have given back

with coaching. I can think of

three or four who have played for

the Black Sticks and a number

of Canterbury reps. The club is

made of really good people and

the family focus.

It makes my job really easy. I’m

really proud of these people.

What motivates you as club

president?

It’s about giving back to a club

I am really proud of. I’ve always

played for this club, I’ve never

played for anyone else and it was

a chance to use some of my skills

in business to help improve the

club in a number of different

areas.

I’ve got four daughters who all

play hockey and my wife is on

the club committee, so we are

deeply involved in hockey. You

might as well be all in.

Do you still compete now?

I’m still playing for the

masters. I was in the Canterbury

masters team last year and we

won the national title which was

pretty cool. I really enjoyed that.

I will probably keep playing until

my body tells me I can’t.

What has playing hockey

taught you?

There are so many parallels

between sport and what it

teaches you about life but for me

in terms of a business context,

playing in your position and

doing your job really well is

something I’ve taken away from

my time in hockey.

The idea that in hockey not

everything goes your way.

Sometimes you will have a great

game, other times you won’t

and you will have to find ways

to refocus and get back into it –

that’s like life as well.

It’s also about the great

friendships you get from sport

and also the idea of being

humble. How you win is just as

important as how you lose.

What have been some of

the highlights of your hockey

career?

Some of the things that jump

out aren’t the games we’ve won

but rather the friendships you

make. You get to play when

you’re younger at a reasonable

level and then you go back and

play Masters where you’re still

playing with some of the people

you played with 20 years ago

which is pretty cool.

What is the most important

thing to you about who you’ve

become in terms of your hockey

playing?

As a club, and myself

personally, we are trying to make

hockey more accessible for kids.

Not all New Zealanders have the

opportunity to be able to afford

to watch their kids play a game.

But the idea that a family could

watch their child play a sport

and be proud of them is such a

powerful thing. As a club, we

also have things in place such as

scholarships, getting kids playing

who otherwise would not have

been able to afford to play. This is

really important to me and to my

wife and the club as a whole.

We’ve just taken on several

players from a lower docile

school and have provided them

with equipment and paid their

fees and got them involved and

just the look on their faces when

they got their new uniform and

new gear, it was so special to see.

You mentioned your whole

family is involved in the club,

tell me more.

Our weekends are quite busy

with four games of hockey and

my daughters have got no choice

obviously playing for Redcliffs.

I think they are pretty loyal as

well, they really enjoy it. I would

have been happy with them

playing any sport but if you do

FAMILY

Ballin with

and Mila.

know a sport as a parent it’s great

because you can teach them and

be a part of it. It’s pretty cool. I

really love the idea of children

playing sports, there are so many

good things about it. There was

of course, a gentle nudge from

me to play hockey but they have

to want to play it themselves

and enjoy it, otherwise it is not

sustainable.

Does your wife play hockey?

No and I think that’s probably

one of her regrets is actually not

playing hockey. She absolutely

loves the game but was a really

good sprinter at school and rode

horses. She didn’t really have an

opportunity to play hockey but

if she had that time again she

would have loved to have played

hockey. She loves watching our

girls play.

She plays socially and it’s quite

funny as the girls give her quite a

hard time for her skill-set.

How do you survive these

early winter mornings playing

hockey?

It gets pretty busy on the

weekends with the different

games and I also go and watch

the other teams in the club.

As a family, we have all just

committed to hockey and know

it is absolutely going to take

over during winter and it just

becomes a part of your life. So

winter is very much focused

on sport and then summer is a

bit more relaxed, we do more

surfing.

Why should people try

hockey?

I am obviously biased but I

do think the first thing is that

any team sport a child plays is

fantastic. I think people should

try hockey though, because the

game is incredibly skilled. It’s

fast and you can play it for a long

time. Like for me, I started as a

five year old and now I’m still

playing, which is a really cool

thing. It is a dynamic, fast, and

exciting game, and as a team

sport, there are so many great

things you can get out of it.

24-hour walk nets

• By Samantha Mythen

“IF I CAN save one more

life, walking for 24 hours is

nothing.”

Starting at 7am, last

Wednesday, Stephen

McPaike started his walk

around South Hagley Park,

clocking up about 104km

in the name of stopping

violence against men.

McPaike’s hopes his

Walk for Help will raise

both awareness for men

who are victims of domestic

abuse and funds to

assist in their recovery.

“My legs are very sore

and the last lap was the

most difficult, mentally

and physically,” he said.

McPaike was inspired to

begin this project after a

man trapped in an abusive

relationship reached out

to him during level four

lockdown.

“I chose to do a walk

because it symbolises

walking out of a bad

relationship and walking

into a new and better life,”

he said.

McPaike said he was

greatly supported by his

employer, Mitre 10 Mega

Ferrymead.

As of yesterday, McPaike

has raised $1410 from the

walk.

All money will be donated

to Canterbury Men’s

Centre on Marshland Rd,

creating a fund for free

counselling for men who

have left abusive relationships.

He is hoping people will

begin having conversations

about an issue, “that is just

not really talked about.”

“I want people to be able

to open up and to say: ‘I

have been abused, I want

help, I want to be a better

person’,” said McPaike.

If you need help, there

are many resources out

there including Shine,

which has a Domestic

Abuse Helpline (0508 744

from 9am to 11pm.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Is business your calling?

If you’re a big thinker, a natural leader or a

born organiser, business could be your perfect

career choice.

Ara Institute of Canterbury has a wide

range of business study options designed to

equip individuals with the skills needed to

take advantage of the many opportunities

available in the business world. Qualifications

include certificates, diplomas, degrees

and graduate certificates and diplomas in

specialties such as project management, sales

and marketing, accounting, HR and change

management.

School leaver Rachel Fraser decided she’d

love a job in an office environment. She

studied a diploma in business at Ara and

now uses the skills and knowledge she gained

organising appointment bookings for the

South Canterbury District Health Board.

She says of the diploma: “It was filled with

relevant information that directly related to

the field, as well as skills like communication,

time management and effective planning

which I find myself using every day. It was an

amazing experience.”

Olivia Smith worked in hospitality for 12

years before studying a business diploma

at Ara, specialising in administration and

technology. “Deciding to study business

opened up so many opportunities,” she says.

Olivia did a lot of her learning in a

simulated office environment. “The tutors

were amazing - they adapted to each students’

learning style. The highlight was realising I’d

suddenly acquired a massive number of skills

that I could use every day in all areas of my

life.”

Olivia is applying those skills in her role as

a customer service officer at ACC. “I work in

Wednesday June 23 2021 Bay Harbour News

the very role I was trained for, and I can do it

with confidence.”

Mike Roberts discovered a passion for

project management while working as a

software tester. With the support of his

employer, he studied a graduate diploma

in project management at Ara where he’d

previously gained his IT degree.

Mike says the industry project he

undertook as part of his postgraduate course

was a highlight of his studies. “Being able to

demonstrate your learnings by working in a

real-world setting is so valuable. It’s a fantastic

opportunity for students.”

Vaccinations for

the rest of Aotearoa

New Zealand

The COVID-19 vaccination rollout for the general population

starts from the end of July.

Our COVID-19 vaccination programme has built momentum

steadily since February. We are vaccinating around 100,000

people a week at the moment. In the second half of the year

we hit top speed and everyone in New Zealand aged 16 and

over will be able to be vaccinated.

Moving to the general population

So far, vaccinations have been made available to those most at

risk of getting COVID-19 to limit the chances of it getting into the

wider population.

With more vaccine supply coming on, and having ramped up our

infrastructure, vaccinations for everyone else in New Zealand

aged 16 and over (the general population) start from 28 July.

This is a very large group of people. To make this flow smoothly,

we will break this down by age bands.

All people aged 60 plus can book their vaccinations from 28 July.

Then, two weeks later, people who are 55 plus. From there, new

age bands will be opened up every 2–3 weeks based on confirmed

deliveries of the vaccine and the speed of rollout to earlier groups.

By mid to late August, invitations should be open for people over

45. By mid to late September, invitations should be open for those

over 35, with everyone else being eligible from October.

Invitations

Most people will get a direct invitation to book – either by email,

text, phone call or in the post. You will then be able to book through

Book My Vaccine, a new national booking system that will be online

from 28 July, or phone a new national call centre. Availability of

booking slots (the date, time and place you can be vaccinated)

will vary between district health board (DHB) regions.

Once you are eligible to be vaccinated, you can be vaccinated

at any time. There is no cut off.

Registration

Even if your age band isn’t open, everyone aged 16 and over will

be able to go to Book My Vaccine to register for an invitation from

28 July. Registration means we will be certain to have your correct

contact details and when your age group is opened, you will get an

invitation telling you it’s your turn to book.

Getting a vaccination

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Receiving an invitation

We’ll call or send you an email, text or letter to invite

you to book.

Make your booking

From 28 July, go to Book My Vaccine or call the new

national call centre to book both doses, or to register

if your age band isn’t open yet.

Get your vaccination

Have your first vaccination dose.

3–6 weeks later have your second vaccination dose.

If you don’t hear from us, or are concerned, you can register

for your vaccination through the new national Book My Vaccine

booking system at any time from 28 July.

Important dates

28 July People 60+ Vaccinations open

11 August People 55+ Vaccinations open

Mid to late Aug People 45 + Invitations should open

Mid to late Sept People 35+ Invitations should open

October People 16+ Invitations should open

Other ways to get vaccinated

As we go through the year there will be other ways for people

to be vaccinated. These will include workplace vaccinations and

other targeted vaccination events across the country. For some

remote rural communities we will vaccinate all age groups at the

same time to make it easier for them. Our successful whānaucentred

approach to vaccinations will continue for Māori and

Pacific communities and those with disabilities.

Octavia wagon a lot of car for the money

I GOT INTO a conversation just

recently with a work colleague,

he’s also a car enthusiast, when

time allows we are always talking

about things automotive.

After asking me how I was

enjoying the Skoda Octavia

evaluation car, he raised a really

good point by saying out of any

car manufacturer, Skoda has

probably done the best job of

turning around its image.

That harks back decades, the

central European company had

a reputation that wasn’t entirely

complementary.

However, today, it is a class

leader in terms of design,

quality, reliability, efficiency and

refinement.

None of that surprises me,

Skoda, now manufactured in

what is known as the Czech

Republic, fell entirely into

Volkswagen Group’s hands in

2000. Since then the company’s

product has been on a constant

programme of improvement,

bearing in mind that Volkswagen

took an interest in Skoda in 1991,

and the product that has been

leaving the factories since then

has been outstanding, with the

Octavia being a classic example

of that.

In New Zealand we have two

Octavia wagons – Style TSi and

RS. Put simply, they are both

four-cylinder petrol-powered

with a turbocharger driving to

the front wheels, the TSi has a

1.4-litre unit, the RS has a 2-litre

engine, and it is the subject of this

evaluation.

The TSi has a power output

of 110kW and drives through

an eight-speed automatic

transmission. The RS gets

something special under the

bonnet, it has the engine that

makes the Volkswagen Golf GTi

so special. In the Octavia it is

rated with 180kW and 370Nm,

it drives through a seven-speed

direct shift transmission.

What makes the RS engine so

special are the points at where

the outputs are reached, power

peaks at just 5000rpm extending

to 6500rpm, maximum torque

is available all of the way from

1600rpm to 4300rpm. The

consequence of all of that is that

there is so much immediacy at all

points of the rev band, you don’t

need to have the engine singing

high to extract acceleration.

Such is the bottom end power,

the engine wants to pull from

low revolutions and that is a

good thing, it feels strong under

the accelerator pedal and hauls

solidly right to the red line.

However, that’s not necessary,

it’s great to manually (paddles)

short-shift the gears and feel

VERSATILE: A host of storage options are available under

the wagon’s tailgate.

SKODA OCTAVIA RS: Performance-based family wagon.

the turbo forcing air into the

cylinders vigorously.

In terms of acceleration, the

Octavia wagon will launch to

100km/h in 6.7sec and will

make 120km/h from 80km/h in

4.1sec. These are feisty times and

rewarding to feel, performance is

constantly vivid. Of course, the

Octavia has various drive modes

that can be selected at will, all

are self explanatory – comfort,

normal, sport and driverprogrammable

individual.

I used normal and sport most

of the time I was driving the

wagon, simply because there is

a nice audible throb delivered

constantly in those modes. It isn’t

loud, but it does let you know

something special is sitting up

front.

Normal and sport modes don’t

deliver a harsh ride. Yes, the

Octavia wagon has progressive

dampers which alter the way the

wagon rides. Personally, I couldn’t

tell a lot of difference, in all

modes the ride is compliant and

comfortable.

In order to beat the weather

bomb that was forecast for

Canterbury recently, I took to the

roads at dusk, and as darkness

encroached misty drizzle made

the roads greasy in places. They

weren’t ideal conditions, but it was

a good test of how the Octavia

wagon handled the conditions.

• Price – Skoda Octavia RS

wagon, $57,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4689mm; width, 1994mm;

height, 1468mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1984cc, 180kW,

370Nm, seven-speed DSG

automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

6.7sec

• Fuel usage – 6.6l/100km

I have a friend who has just

traded his Volkswagen Passat

wagon for a 2017 Octavia RS, and

he tells me how much he misses

the 4Motion system of the VW,

he says the RS doesn’t put power

to ground as well when the road

surface is slippery.

The conditions I drove in were

ideal to test that theory, and I

think it’s fair to say that Skoda

has done a lot with the latest

generation Octavia to make

it work when grip is low, the

electronics working well so that

I never had any issues. I guess

that also has a lot to do with the

quality of the low profile Good

Year tyres (225/40 x 19in), they

have a solid tenure and offer

plenty of feel so the driver is

fully aware of what is happening

underneath.

On board, the Octavia is chock

full of technology. The evaluation

car was carrying a lot of extras,

and it’s fair to say Skoda’s option

list is extensive.

However, even in standard

form the Octavia wants for little,

it carries all of those wonderful

features that have been developed

through the VW Group and,

what’s more, the fit and finish is

absolutely sublime. I particularly

like the gearshift lever, well it’s

more like a button really, just

requiring a gentle flick of a switch

to activate. The Octavia makes

you feel good to be in and it

looks after you with high comfort

levels and user-friendly in-cabin

dynamics.

It is also a genuine fiveseater

car, and the load space is

cavernous and adaptable so that

all of those belongings we tend

to carry with us can be stored

securely.

That’s just one of the reasons

why I like wagons and I

particularly like the Octavia RS.

Its performance and versatility

make it many different vehicles

in one.

I’d also be very interested

in driving the TSi wagon,

sometimes those with what

would be deemed the mainstream

model often turn out to be the

pick of the bunch.

In all cases it’s certainly time to

forget all those old disparaging

Skoda jokes.
