FOR 47 YEARS Craig Todd

has dedicated his weekends and

any spare time lifeguarding at

Sumner beach, giving back to

an organisation that has created

a multitude of memories for

him.

His dedicated work protecting

beachgoers was recognised

at the Surf Life Saving New

Excellence for 2021.

months to replace the engines and

operations for the next 15 years.

The cost of the refit is more than

$250,000 but “generous” donations

from funding bodies and the

Coastguard’s capital fund had

already contributed a large amount,

leaving a $60,000 shortfall.

“The project will deliver

extended reliability, more power,

fuel efficiency and improvements

to the boat’s handling. These all

make a difference, especially on

long-range search and rescue

missions when the crew may be

searching for a vessel in distress

for many hours, miles out at sea,”

said Nicholls. • Turn to page 9

GREAT TO see Craig Todd

getting the credit he deserves for a

lifetime of service to surf lifesaving

(page 1).

Todd received a prestigious

distinguished service award at

the Surf Life Saving New

Zealand National Awards of

Excellence. Other Sumner clubies

and Tisha Bradley (Taylors

Mistake) also received awards.

Todd has sporting genes. I

recall him being a very useful and

mobile forward for Linwood rugby

league, his son Alex was named

Canterbury rugby league forward

of the decade last year, and his

brother Brent was a Kiwi and

winner of a Sydney premiership

with the Canberra Raiders.

Said Todd: “I don’t

do these things for

recognition or awards,

I appreciate the

acknowledgement, but

for me, it’s just about

giving back to the community.”

That sums Todd up.

Political decision looms for Turner

• By Chris Barclay

ANDREW TURNER will have

a key decision to make if runs

for mayor next year – represent

The People’s Choice, Labour or

both organisations.

The People’s Choice caucus

leader is yet to declare whether

he will contest the mayoralty in

2022, centre-right independent

councillor Phil Mauger is the

only candidate to confirm he is

targeting the role to be vacated

by Lianne Dalziel.

Turner, who is the current

Deputy Mayor and Banks

Peninsula Ward councillor, is

also considering whether he

would align to The People’s

Choice, Labour or both, as

some colleagues chose two years

ago.

“All of those decisions are yet

to be made. There are a number

of things I’m still considering,

bearing in mind the election is

still over a year away,” Turner

said.

“Any announcement will be

made in due course.”

Should Turner attempt to

succeed Dalziel, and run exclusively

with Labour, the party

could secure the Christchurch

mayoralty for the first time

since Neville Pickering’s tenure

from 1971-1974.

Turner secured Banks Peninsula’s

council seat for The

People’s Choice ticket in 2019,

with the organisation saying

candidates may choose to stand

under the Labour banner.

Kelly Barber, a People’s

Choice-Labour candidate when

unsuccessfully seeking election

to the Coastal Ward in 2019,

has opted to run with Labour

in next month’s by-election to

replace James Daniels.

Others could follow Barber’s

lead to the polls in October.

“What I think you will see

next year is you will see people

just running Labour, which

will be quite a significant

difference,” The People’s

Choice chairman Joe Davies

said.

“That might blast open

the doors to people running

independent or not Labour.

“It’s going to be a big year for

centre-left Christchurch local

politics particularly going into a

big mayoral campaign,” Davies

said.

“There’s going to be very

intense discussions internally

around the mayoral campaign.

“Are we going to select as

Labour? Are we going to select

as The People’s Choice? Are we

going to select as both? These

(questions) are all ongoing.”

Selection committees are

made up of The People’s Choice

and Labour members.

Barber said he opted to

run exclusively as a Labour

candidate for the sake of transparency.

“Last time I was The People’s

Choice and Labour. A lot of

people don’t actually declare

who they are and this time I

thought I’d do that,” he said.

In Brief

COFFEE SHOP CLOSED

Heathcote Valley’s Upshot Coffee

is closed until further notice while

its resource consent to continue

operation is processed. The

resource consent was submitted

to the city council last week and is

with a processing officer who will

review the application. Upshot

Coffee had been operating with

a temporary accommodation

licence under the Greater

Christchurch Regeneration Act.

However, the legislation expired

in June, meaning the cafe’s

licence became void. Co-owners

Megan Geels and Justin Good are

hopeful the business will be able

to stay open.

WET JULY FUNDS

THe Goat Shed, a surfboard

library in Sumner, has created

six surfboards (of a final 12) in

the last few months. The project

has been assisted by the Sumner

Dippers that donated $2090 from

their Wet July fundraising to

purchase leashes, fins and bags

for the new boards. When the

library is launched later this

year, people will be welcome to

try the boards to see how they

ride. The Goat Shed team has

also been working with surfboard

shaper Jay Jackman. For more

‘I’ve had so many good

times with this club’

• From page 1

“I don’t do these things for

recognition or awards, I

appreciate the acknowledgement,

but for me, it’s just about

giving back to the community.

I’ve had so many good times

with this club,” Todd said.

Todd has been qualified as an

active lifeguard for almost half a

century.

He became a lifeguard as soon

as he could at age 14. Prior to

that he was an active member of

the club.

Having grown up in Woolston

in a well-known sports family

and then lived in Sumner for

more than 40 years, he has

dedicated his life to the Sumner

SLS club.

His son Alex was named the

Canterbury Rugby League player

of the decade last year, and his

brother Brent was a Kiwi front

row forward in the 1980s and

90s, and a Sydney premiership

grand-final winner with Canberra.

Todd, himself, was also a very

good rugby league player with

Linwood.

Todd has worked as building

officer, junior surf officer and

patrol captain.

He was chairman for 17 years

and during this time was also a

surf sports team manager and

competitor in surf life saving

events.

“It’s really nice to see the

young kids come through the

club, participating in both the

competitive sport side as well as

giving back to the community,”

he said.

Todd said he originally became

a lifeguard as he “enjoyed

the beach” and a few of his

mates were also part of the club.

He stayed a member all these

years as it became more about

giving back to something he had

got so much enjoyment from.

“It’s also a lot harder to get out

than it is to get in,” he laughed.

Said Sumner club chairman

Mark Lodder: “Toddy has been

involved in the surf life-saving

movement forever and he has

done so much for the club.”

Todd helped in the search for

14-year-old Jack Sutton, who

drowned at Scarborough Beach

in 2018 after he was caught in a

rip.

Todd said he will be around

the club “forever” but would

like to slowly step aside as new

members take on club roles.

“Everyone who received an

award deserved it. For every bad

story, there are so many more

good stories and it’s all because

of the lifeguards and club

members,” Todd said.

Todd received service

awards.

The awards are

given out based on a

system.

“People who receive these

Kate Suter

rewards do so because of a longterm

commitment.

They put their hand

up daily and do daily,”

said Sumner Surf Life

Mark Lodder.

“It really does boil

down to the lifeguard’s

passion for the

community and to help

others. These awards

are not given lightly,

they take many years to achieve.

What our lifeguards have done

is no fluke.”

The lifeguards received the

awards as they have held officer

from the president, treasurer,

club captain, IRB officer and

junior surf co-ordinator,

they are all skilled lifeguards,

working as patrol captains, they

educate new lifeguards, they

“When you save someone

“Club captain is a very

After passing training, a lifeguard

award is achieved.

“Generally, the new lifeguards

yacht clubs hold opening days

• By Samantha Mythen

CHARTERIS BAY Yacht Club’s

sailing season has begun and the

club wants to teach you how to

sail.

Over the weekend, cannons

were fired heralding the season’s

start.

Vice Commodore Kim Clinch

said the club is the perfect place

to learn how to sail.

“It’s a very safe space to learn

as it’s shallow and sheltered,” she

said.

“The club is also very family-orientated

with multiple

generations competing against

each other for fun.”

Clinch said her husband Shane

and 17-year-old son, Aston, often

sail against each other.

The club trains in dinghy

yachts, which are smaller boats

compared to keelers.

It has also produced national

competition winners, including

13-year-old Will Leech, who is

the current New Zealand optimist

national champion.

Will started sailing when he

was six and went on to do the

learn to sail programme with the

club.

“The things I love about

sailing are meeting new people

who have become some of my

best friends, travelling which

takes you to new places all

the time. I also love sending it

Will said the yacht club is his

been very lucky to have some

amazing coaches right through

LYTTELTON rugbY c L ub vs NOr THS (fO rmE r LY TITAHI b AY)

The Lyttelton Rugby

Club would like

to thank all their

sponsors for their

support for our

57th annual

Titahi Bay Trip 2021

Over the weekend of 24-26 September 2021, The

Lyttelton Rugby Club hosted Norths (Titahi Bay) for

our annual trip.

The game was played in a strong Norwest wind but

very warm conditions. Lyttelton played into the

wind in the first half with Norths holding a narrow

lead. With the wind behind us the Lyttelton team

played very tactfully and won the match 58-39.

Both teams played good running rugby but Lyttelton

played the conditions better.

The following weekend 1-3 October 2021 Lyttelton

travelled to Porirua to play for the shield which

Norths hold. Game day we woke to a typical

Wellington day, blustery northerly wind and a

moderate temperature. Lyttelton played with

the wind behind us in the first half and holding a

narrow lead 14-5 at halftime. Unfortunately, the

lead wasn’t enough with Norths winning the match

27-14 although the Lyttelton team didn’t score any

points in the 2nd half, the team played well with

showing good sportsmanship. The Lyttelton Rugby

Club and the U13 team would like to thank all our

sponsors and supporters especially the Lyttelton

Port of Christchurch and the Bay Harbour News for

their support towards this trip. The team would also

like to thank all the 20 supports who travelled to

Porirua to support the team.

Call to remove boneseed

• By Samantha Mythen

A REDCLIFFS resident is on a

mission to rid the Port Hills of

a noxious weed, allowing native

plants to thrive in its place.

Sue Cooke

is hoping to

raise awareness

about a yellow

flowering

plant called

boneseed and

encourage

Sue Cooke

residents to

remove it from

their properties.

She is involved with the

“re-greening” Barnett Park

group.

“We want to remove as much

bone seed as possible in the area

to allow the native flora and fauna

to flourish, and to especially

bring back the birds,” she said.

The city council and Department

of Conservation have been

trying to control boneseed in the

area for many years.

However, the city council

was prevented from working

in the park after it was closed

following the February 22, 2011

earthquake.

As a result, Cooke said: “The

boneseed, which was largely under

control, has gone rampant,

and now covers much of the

reserve.”

“If left unchecked for another

five years, it will form a complete

cover of the whole area,

killing all native vegetation and

preventing regeneration, which

would otherwise occur quite

successfully.”

Boneseed is an introduced

species and can produce up to

50,000 seeds a year.

COLOURFUL PEST: Redcliffs

resident Sue Cooke is

encouraging people to

remove a noxious weed

seen all over the Port Hills.

“Not many people know but

it is a noxious and vivacious

weed,” she said.

Working bees are being held

over the coming two months to

tackle the bone seed epidemic in

Barnett Park but Cooke wants to

encourage people to remove the

plant wherever they see it.

“Now is the perfect time to

get rid of the bone seed plants as

you are more aware of it and can

see it easily as it is flowering at

the moment, just before it seeds

and spreads,” she said.

Boneseed can be controlled

by cutting the stem near the

ground and pasting the stump

with a suitable herbicide gel and

small seedlings can be pulled

from the ground.

If you would like to help with

Barnett Park’s re-greening, meet

at the Bay View Rd entrance

on Wednesdays and Sundays at

1pm.

Plan to start

jetty rebuild

next year

• By Samantha Mythen

THE GOVERNORS Bay

Jetty Restoration Trust’s new

chairwoman is confident work

will start next year to rebuild the

quake-damaged

structure.

Miller, a “parttime

construction

lawyer and fulltime

mum,” has

lived in Governors

Bay since 2015.

The Miller family

previously lived in Dongguan,

China, a “small-town of nine

million,” for six years.

Miller became involved with

the trust in April, helping it to

start the tender process.

Prue Miller

When the previous chair stepped

down, she took on the role. Miller

said a tender is likely to be chosen

for the jetty rebuild within six

weeks and then the “middle phase”

of fundraising can start.

“It will be important to have

not only the support of the

harbour community but wider

Christchurch, too.”

•The trust’s next fundraising

event will be a vintage fair

and tour of the historic

Waitahuna homestead in

Governors Bay on

October 26.

Treasures from the past: Return of the lighthouse

THIS WONDERFUL 1882

image by Burton Brothers

photographers shows

Whakaraupō/Lyttelton

Harbour’s lighthouse on the

eastern mole, at the entry to the

inner harbour.

Plans were approved by the

Lyttelton Harbour Board in

July 1878 and, from its first

days of service, it was an

essential element in the port’s

navigational infrastructure.

Like many lighthouses in New

Zealand, the lens was made by

Chance Brothers in England.

Early lights were powered by

paraffin or acetylene and the

relatively feeble output was

the reason behind the multisegment,

prism design of the

dioptric lens.

The light source was electrified

around 1920 when electricity

supply became available in

Ōhinehou/Lyttelton.

The devastating 2010 and 2011

earthquakes caused irreparable

damage to the eastern mole,

resulting in the lighthouse’s

dramatic 15 degree lean. There

was significant damage to

port infrastructure generally,

however, in spite of the immense

challenges port wide, the

Lyttelton Port Company worked

quickly to remove the lighthouse

from its vulnerable position.

In 2011, it was carefully

transported across the inner

harbour for temporary

safekeeping on more stable

ground below the tunnel

entrance.

Lyttelton Port Company

engineering adviser Neil

McLennan said the management

team always anticipated the

lighthouse would be returned to

its original position.

“We all understood that it

was part of our port heritage,

important to the Lyttelton

community and that we needed

to take care of it,” he said.

As a timber structure, the

lighthouse itself had survived

relatively unscathed, apart from

some damage to a lens and some

age-related issues.

In October 2020, after a

sensitive restoration and

ready for a fresh coat of paint,

the lighthouse was carefully

transported by truck down

Norwich Quay to its original

position.

The construction of the cruise

berth, which is designed to

withstand significant seismic

events, provided the sturdy base

for the old lighthouse to see out

another century.

The soft, glowing light

now able to be seen from the

lighthouse at night, is similar

to that which would have shone

in the late 19th and early 20th

centuries.

McLennan for his generous

input and images.

Popular bookshop marking two decades in business

When local businessman Barry decided

to open a bookshop in Ferrymead back

in the day, the naysayers said it wouldn’t

work, it wasn’t the right location, a mall

would be better. Not to be deterred,

Barry went ahead with his plans, and

as it turned out, proved those naysayers

wrong.

On November 26 this year, the

bookshop, nowadays trading as Take

Note, will mark 20 years in business.

Barry runs the popular bookshop in

partnership with his wife Kerry. And

with their daughter Tayla having joined

them full-time four years ago and their

other daughter Renee also helping out

it’s truly a “family affair”.

“The girls were three and five when

we started so they’ve

grown up in the

business, and many of

our customers have

enjoyed seeing that

over the years,” Kerry

says.

Originally a Paper

Plus outlet, the

bookshop changed to

a Take Note nine years

ago.

“We are still part of

the Paper Plus group, it was really just a

name change,” Kerry explains.

“It is an independently New Zealandowned

and -operated organisation and

all the stores are independently owned.

There are advantages to being part of the

group in terms of discounts, which we

can pass on to customers.”

More than simply a book and

stationery store, Take Note Ferrymead

also offers postal services, vehicle

registration and bill payment services.

The postal services have been an integral

part of the business from the beginning,

then five years ago banking services

were introduced as well as the vehicle

registration and bill payments. The

banking operation was recently closed,

services still

Lost and Found

My story of heartbreak and hope by Toni Street

Toni Street’s easy on-air style and warm personality has made her a firm favourite with thousands

of New Zealanders. But behind the bubbly persona, is a story of heartbreak and resilience. Toni

and her twin brother Lance were the much-loved first children of Taranaki dairy farmers Geoff and

Wendy Street. At nine months old, Lance was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukaemia, passing

away a year later. Soon after baby Tracy was born, but only lived for a couple of hours. Wendy then

gave birth to Stephen followed by Kirsty. But when Stephen was 14, the unthinkable happened he

was killed in a quad bike accident. His death would become the seismic marker of Toni’s life, as

she vowed to do everything in her power to bring happiness to her parent’s life. Toni would go onto

become one of New Zealand’s most popular and successful television reporters and hosts and was

determined to raise her own large family, with husband Matt. But after giving birth to their second

child, she became seriously unwell, and was admitted to hospital, in agony. Eventually diagnosed

with a rare immune disease, Churg-Strauss syndrome. As a result, they found that she was unable

to carry another child but her best friend offered to be her and Matt’s surrogate. Toni and her family’s

story is one of almost unbelievable trial and tragedy, but also love, determination and incredible

resilience and will strike a chord with anyone who has gone through difficult times.

My Remarkable Journey - A Memoir

by Katherine Johnson and Joylette Hylick

The remarkable woman at heart of the smash New York Times bestseller and Oscar-winning

film Hidden Figures tells the full story of her life, including what it took to work at NASA, help

land the first man on the moon, and live through a century of turmoil and change. In 2015, at

the age of 97, Katherine Johnson became a global celebrity. President Barack Obama awarded

her the prestigious Presidential Medal of Freedom—the nation’s highest civilian honor—for

her pioneering work as a mathematician on NASA’s first flights into space. Her contributions

to America’s space program were celebrated in a blockbuster and Academy-award nominated

movie. In this memoir, Katherine shares her personal journey from child prodigy in the

Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia to NASA human computer. In her life after retirement,

she served as a beacon of light for her family and community alike. Her story is centered

around the basic tenets of her life—no one is better than you, education is paramount, and

asking questions can break barriers. My Remarkable Journey ultimately brings into focus

a determined woman who navigated tough racial terrain with soft-spoken grace—and the

unrelenting grit required to make history and inspire future generations.

Shed Couture

a Passion for Fashion by Peta mathias

An entertaining celebration of sustainable fashion, buying well and finding your style in the

twenty-first century. ‘The point of this book is to explore my ideas for sartorial satisfaction, to

tell the stories associated with my love of clothes and fashion, and to share the message of

accidental sustainability.’ When Peta Mathias dug through the clothes she had stored away

for twenty years in her shed, she realised it was full of valuable, beautiful items that were

crying out to be worn again: ‘Fashion is mysterious, irresistible and alluring . . . they are not

just frocks — they are beauty, art, history, emotion, memory, identity and, above all, joy.’

From this arose a new appreciation of buying well but cannily, so your clothes will not

bankrupt you nor go out of fashion. Reviving her neglected wardrobe, Peta revelled in mixing

fabrics, colours and patterns, considering how to make an impact and how that dull pair of

shoes can be transformed into something just a little bit fabulous.

Before & Laughter

by Jimmy carr

*A memoir and self-help manual by one of the country’s most treasured comedians – for

anyone who feels stuck in a rut but doesn’t have the tools or self-belief to shake things up*

In his mid-20s, Jimmy was bored, boring, unfulfilled and underachieving. He wasn’t exactly

depressed, but he was very sad. Think of a baby owl whose mum has recently died in a

windmill accident. He was that sad. This book tells the story of how Jimmy turned it around

and got happy, through the redemptive power of dick jokes.

Written to take advantage of the brief window between the end of lockdown and Jimmy getting

cancelled for saying something unforgivable to Lorraine Kelly, this book is as timely as it is

unnecessary. Because you might be interested in Jimmy’s life but he’s damn sure you’re a lot

more interested in your own, Before & Laughter is about both of you. But mainly him. It tells

the story of Jimmy’s life – the transformation from white-collar corporate drone to fake-toothed

donkey-laugh plastic-haired comedy mannequin – while also explaining how to turn your own

life around and become the you you’ve always dreamt of being.

National Identity

confessions of an outsider by simon Bridges

An open, honest and at times intensely personal memoir about race, fatherhood, marriage,

masculinity, fitting in, and the things that shape our national character. Simon Bridges grew up as the

son of a working-class Baptist preacher in Te Atatu, as the youngest of six children. In many ways he

had a typical Kiwi upbringing, at a time when having little didn’t seem to matter much. Yet for Bridges,

his was the life of an outsider: experiencing otherness for being Maori, and yet an otherness from

other Maori; a Westie with a thick accent, trying to break into the upper reaches of society; distanced

from his father, an ageing man in his own world. As a young politician, Bridges soon came to realise

he was an introvert in an extrovert’s world, and a male leader who has never identified with New

Zealand’s idealised version of the strong, laconic, rugby-loving man. In National Identity, Bridges offers

an attempt to question himself and the country he loves. Politics, crime, kai, music, nature: these are

the stuff of a life. Through candid and self-aware reflections, he points out that politicians have become

less robust, and that people don’t participate as much anymore - eroding our institutions and national

life. He speaks his mind on an education system in crisis, the decline of Christianity, and how being

the smallest, most isolated developed country in the world explains why we are how we are.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Presented with pride and modernised for

comfort, this four-bedroom family home in

central Sumner offers an incredibly desirable

lifestyle, being mere blocks from the beach

and village.

Initially built in the 1940s with a renovation

and extension in 2007 to include an additional

bedroom and living area, the home's approx.

219sqm layout is generously proportioned

and can effortlessly accommodate families.

Displaying hints of character, neutral decor

and tasteful style, enhancements have also

been included over the years, with both

bathrooms and the kitchen showcasing

streamlined finishes that are easy on the eye.

Offering two bedrooms on each floor, the

master with ensuite is located upstairs, where

you can admire views across the Scarborough

hinterland and Richmond hillside, while the

remaining two bedrooms and second

bathroom are situated downstairs.

A formal lounge compliments the open-plan

kitchen, living and dining layout, which is

socially configured, featuring a breakfast bar

and bi-fold doors to the sun-dappled deck and

level lawn that sit privately within the

beautifully established grounds.

Functional storage and heating solutions are

found throughout, with the internal access

tandem garage, log burner, heat pump and

predominate double glazing being ideal

inclusions.

Thanks to its favourable position, the approx.

556m2 section is fully fenced and has been

thoughtfully finished with an outdoor shower

and spa pool, providing the perfect remedy for

a post-surf wind-down. It's also over the road

from Sumner Primary and perfectly placed to

embrace Sumner's range of amenities, all of

which are only a walk away.

Nissan Navara comes to the rescue

MY WIFE AND I have called it

the week from hell.

Firstly, our power went off

thanks to a corroded wire from

the street. While we thought

we were well advanced in terms

of preparedness – generator,

gas cooker, torches and plenty

of batteries – for 24 hours we

struggled without electricity with

an overnight low of a miserable

-5 deg C.

Secondly, the fluctuating power

surge as the wire arced against the

house, spelt the end of one of our

freezers, it was full of frozen food,

quickly defrosting.

Thankfully, and at short notice,

we had a rental delivered until the

time we could buy a new freezer

and have it installed so no food

was lost.

That’s where Nissan’s new

Navara ute comes in. We bought

a new freezer and I used the ute

to pick it up from the collection

depot, I also used the vehicle

to deliver the old freezer to the

Parkhouse Rd recycling centre

along with a dryer that had long

been sitting in the garage unused

and was well past its used by date.

That’s where today’s double

cab ute comes in, it’s not only the

working vehicle with substantial

off-road, four-wheel-drive ability,

it’s the sedate and versatile carryall

that will also whisk families to

all those environments we travel

to on a daily basis and, might I

add, in comfort.

Nissan has just released a new

Navara, well, it’s a new shape

with a major overhaul inside,

but the mechanicals are largely a

carryover. That’s fine, the 2.3-litre

four-cylinder diesel engine is a

cracker in terms of sophistication,

so much so that Nissan must

have the other ute manufacturers

thinking hard about refinement.

The Navara also has a complex

rear suspension; gone are the

old leaf springs that are mostly

traditional with today’s pick-ups,

the Navara has a coil spring, multiple-link

set-up that locates the

live rear axle. It eliminates a lot of

the jiggle you get with utes over

uneven surfaces.

At the other end the twin-turbocharged

diesel is rated by Nissan at

140kW and 450Nm. The origins

of this engine hark back to Nissan’s

early alliance with Renault and

that collaboration shows, there

are high power outputs and a

smoothness that’s hard to match.

There’s no lumpy diesel throb here,

it works away in a soft, silent manner

and is very responsive. Not

only do the power outputs impress

through its 2298cc displacement,

it is also a fuel miser.

Nissan claims a 7.6-litre per

100km combined cycle average.

My time with the evaluation

vehicle required a lot of inner-city

running around incorporating

those tasks I mentioned in my

FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE: Genuine off-road ability.

NISSAN NAVARA ST-X: Home appliances are easily catered for on the ute’s deck..

introduction. That being the

case, I wasn’t expecting to come

close to Nissan’s claims, but I

did return it to the dealership

with 9l/100km showing on the

readout. On my long highway

run to Hororata and Dunsandel,

a steady 100km/h cruise had the

engine sipping fuel at the rate of

6l/100km instantaneously, the

rev counter pointing to a lazy

1750rpm in seventh gear.

Yes, the ST-X has an automatic

seven-speeder and it, too, is one

of relative smoothness, shifts are

quick and can be encouraged

through a sequential shifting system

at the main gearshift lever.

Another interesting driveline

function is the four-mode

drive-type selector, it ranges

from standard to sport, tow and

off-road, I largely left it in normal

mode, but for those who like to

explore maximum efficiencies

those modes are there to help.

Elsewhere, the Navara is also

very car-like to drive, sure at over

5.2m it is a big vehicle and a trial

to fit into a standard city metered

car park, but it has a purpose

and it’s unashamedly suited for

that. On the deck you can load

the traditional one-tonne, and it

is rated with a 3500kg tow figure

(braked).

In terms of transportation it

will also carry five adults, the rear

seats don’t have a lot of rake but

• Price – Nissan Navara ST-

X, $57,490

• Dimensions – Length,

5255mm; width, 1850mm;

height, 1815mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2298cc, 140kW, 450Nm,

seven-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9.4sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

they are easily as comfortable as

any of the competition.

Up front there are heated seats

(full leather trim), and as much

technology as you could expect

from a modern ute. Satellite navigation

is fitted in ST-X models

along with cruise control and full

electrics.

On the highway the Navara

moves quietly and with much

dignity. In terms of handling it

enters a corner with solid turn-in

and little transition of weight. The

rear is far from lively and even

though part of my highway evaluation

was on wet roads, I never

thought the suspension would

let me down in terms of keeping

the tyres gripping well the road

surface.

Interestingly, the Navara rides

on 255/60 x 18in Toyo tyres and

they must be commended for

their quiet operating manner and

effective feedback to the driver.

Nissan has a comprehensive

Navara line-up – single-cab, king

cab and double cab – with two

and four-wheel-drive drivelines

and manual and automatic transmission

options.

The range starts from $41,990

and ends at $67,990 for the flashy

Pro 4X. I drove that model prior

to picking up the ST-X and it

made an immediate impression

on me for its body kit and chunky

tyres, yet, it too, drives in the

civilised manner that this series

of Navara can take enormous

credit for.

The ST-X on the other hand

doesn’t miss out on much to the

Pro 4X, but it is not so in-yourface

in terms of style. That being

the case, I’d easily settle for the

base to mid-grade models.

The new Navara comes at an

opportune time. The Government

tax on utes is set for January

and buyers are flocking to them

to save the extra cost that is expected

to be somewhere between

$2780-$5175.

Nissan assures me supply is

constant and interest in the newcomer

is high. I can see why, it

certainly sits as one of the market

leaders.

I know it certainly arrived in

my driveway at an opportune

time. My wife and I are so

grateful.

From the beat

to the ward

After 18 years in the New Zealand

Police Force, Ally Ealam has embarked

on a whole new career.

The former frontline senior sergeant recently graduated from

Ara Institute of Canterbury with a New Zealand Diploma in Enrolled Nursing

and is now working in aged care in Rangiora where she grew up.

Ally says she’d “seen it all” as a police officer. “I attended some pretty horrific

jobs over the years. Some of them I’ll never forget, but those experiences

made me the person I am today.”

Although Ally decided to step away from enforcement, she wanted to do

something that drew upon her many years of work experience and her past

involvement in St John Ambulance. Enrolled nursing fit the bill perfectly.

“I’d heard Ara was a fantastic place to learn. I loved the whole learning

environment and the buzz of learning - it reminded me of my Police College

days.”

During her studies, Ally had clinical placements in a variety of health

settings. “I got to watch two emergency caesarean sections,” she says. “That

was amazing - I cried under my facemask!”

When she was in the Police, Ally loved working with the elderly. Now that

she’s gained her nursing diploma, she’s thrilled to be working with seniors

again – this time as an enrolled nurse at Bainswood on Victoria in Rangiora.

“Ara equipped me with the skills and confidence to work with our elderly

and I’m really enjoying it. I’m looking after and connecting with the residents

and their families, getting experience in assessing and dressing wounds,

managing medication, working with our local GPs and palliative care nurses

and so much more. I feel absolutely privileged to be able to do what I do.”


There’s definitely a place

for women in engineering.


Mechanical engineer

Digger driver becomes

design engineer

Not so long ago, Steph Crosson

(Ngāti Whātua) was working in the civil

works industry, driving a digger all day.

That was until she decided she wanted

something more out of life.


I loved the whole learning

experience and the buzz of

learning.


Enrolled nurse

Ally Ealam.

“I had this overwhelming feeling that it wasn’t enough,” she says.

Her job involved working around engineers and she started to become

interested in what they were doing and why. “I kinda just wanted to be

part of that.” So, she took the “daunting” step of enrolling in a mechanical

engineering degree at Ara.

Three years later and instead of driving a digger, Steph has the skills to

design one. “I could design the hydraulic systems, the components within it

and even the things the diggers are building.”

Before coming to Ara, Steph’s last experience of education was at high

school in Timaru. She never thought she’d come back to study, but once she

took the plunge, she thrived in Ara’s hands-on learning environment.

“Ara was great – the whole way through. I wouldn’t study anywhere else.

The class sizes were perfect to me because you got to know everyone, and

everybody helped each other out. The facilities were awesome, and the

tutors were great, really supportive.”

Steph says being a woman in engineering has been no problem. “There’s

definitely a place for women in engineering because we bring a new

perspective to problem solving and creativity. I never felt excluded at Ara – it

was a really supportive learning space and so much fun.”

International consultancy company Beca offered Steph a job as she neared

the completion of her studies and she says she couldn’t have asked for a

better end to her degree.

“I just really want to encourage anyone – it doesn’t matter your age or your

background – that study is a viable option. Life’s too short to muck around.

Just own your life and make it happen. Learn more, know more, do more.”

Building skills for a

brighter future

Tony Siva is proudly Samoan and

even prouder since he took a trades

course at Ara and got himself an

apprenticeship to become a builder.

Why did you choose to learn a trade?

To build a better future for my family by becoming a qualified builder. Also,

the course was free through Ara’s Pacific Trades Training scheme.

What was your experience at Ara like?

I thought it would be awkward because of my age, being surrounded by

kids who just finished school. But my tutors were great – they made learning

relevant and fun – and I was encouraged all the way.

What did you enjoy most about your course?

As well as learning how to build a house and things like retaining walls, decks

and fences, we learned how to interpret our culture through woodwork, so I

also made a To’oto’o (Samoan chief’s staff).

What kind of support did you receive through

Pacific Trades Training?

There’s lots of care and support provided - like bus money, petrol vouchers,

food vouchers, counsellors and advisors. And Ara’s

Pacific Island Students Association offers a lot too.

What are you doing now?

I’m doing my apprenticeship at Home NZ Construction.

What are your plans for the future?

I want to buy or build my own house and hopefully go back to Samoa to help

rebuild my village.

What advice would you give to anyone contemplating study?

It’s never too late to study or change your career path. If you work hard and

put the time and effort into a trade, I guarantee you’ll reap the benefits.

Support at the ready

for all learners

Ara’s dedicated Disability Services

team has a simple objective: equity

in education.

“We aim to level the playing field to allow students with impairments to have

equitable access to their chosen course and future path,” explains Ara disability

advisor, Rose Edgar.

Ara can help support students with almost any impairment or long-term medical

condition including dyslexia, epilepsy, autism spectrum conditions, chronic

fatigue, mental health difficulties (e.g. depression), traumatic brain injury, or

hearing, visual and physical impairments such as spina bifida and paralysis.

The team works with students to find supports or adjustments that will help

reduce any barriers they face due to disabilities or health conditions. “That

might be extra time for exams, finding technology which supports their learning,

communicating with tutors about changes that need to be made during classes,

or connecting students with other support services in and around Ara,” says

student advisor, Kirstie McHale. “Once a student signs up with us, we work

with them to create an individualised access plan which outlines the targeted

support in place for them.”

Kirstie adds that for some students, reader/writer assistance in an exam can be

the difference between passing and failing. “Timed exams can be a real barrier

for students with learning difficulties that affect their reading or writing. Having

a support person to read questions aloud,

or write down verbal answers, allows students to show what they know in an

exam situation more accurately.”

Support is available across all Ara campuses and Rose encourages individuals

to contact Disability Services as soon as they’re thinking about studying at Ara.

“We understand that people are sometimes apprehensive about asking for help.

Often people attach a stigma to the word disability and won’t seek the help

they’re entitled to, but we encourage anyone who could benefit from our help to

get in touch. We’re here to support you in the best way we can. The smartest thing

you can do for your study is to make use of all the support available to you.”

For more information, email disability@ara.ac.nz

or phone 03 940 8089.
