ZONTA CANTERBURY SECONDARY SCHOOLS SPORTS AWARDS

‘I feel happy and proud

to represent my school’

• By Fiona Ellis

BECOMING AN

international swimmer is

difficult in the era of Covid,

as Luka Willems discovered

when the lockdown was

announced last March.

The Papanui High School

student was due to fly to

Turkey that very day to

represent New Zealand in

the Down’s syndrome World

Swimming Championships.

However, the 18-year-old

is doing well without leaving

his home turf.

He is one of several from

schools in the Nor’West News

area to win a Zonta Sports

Award, recognising South

Canterbury’s top young

athletes.

WINNING: Papanui High

School student Luka

Willems has been named

as the top outstanding

young sports sportsman

with a disability in the

30th Zonta Sports

Awards. ​

I’m always impressed when

locals come to me with a solution

as well as a problem, so it’s been a

real pleasure to work alongside

Rangiora resident Matt

Hennessey, who wants to address

the rise in mental health factors in

emergency callouts.

Rather than come and complain to

his MP, Matt has front-footed this

issue, meeting with myself and the

local police, communicating clearly

with the community, and coming

up with a plan of attack.

Matt and I have launched a

petition on change.org, calling for

the Canterbury District Health

Board (CDHB) to establish a

mental health co-response

service. This would see a mental

health professional joining

emergency responders to attend

to mental health emergency calls.

Currently police and the fire

service are the first responders to


all emergency callouts, despite 20

per cent of Canterbury police

callouts deal with mental health

crises.

At the other end of the petition

process, I was pleased to join

Grant Harris to present our

Marshland Rd petition to the

Christchurch City Council earlier

this month.

Grant is another great example of

a local identifying an issue and

coming up with a plan to address

it. The reduced speed limit of

60kmh along Marshland Rd,

between Prestons Rd and Chaney

Corner, was a reflection of the

underinvestment in Canterbury’s

roading network.

The council’s own public

consultation indicated most

people are of the same opinion,

so it was good to be able to bring

this back to the council to

reconsider its merits.


Thursday October 21 2021 3

• By Fiona Ellis

THE CITY council’s

controversial proposal to

stop through traffic and right

turns for cars at a Bryndwr

intersection has been criticised

as “unworkable” by community

board members.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board submissions committee

has made a submission to

the city council on its proposal

for the third and final section

of the Nor’West Arc cycleway,

linking Papanui to Canterbury

University.

Those

driving on

Aorangi Rd

will find their

options at the

Wairakei Rd

intersection

limited to a

Bridget

Williams

left turn if the

plan is implemented

as part

of the 4km roading changes.

This proposal garnered both

criticism and praise from those

who use the route, as reported

by Nor’West News last month.

The city council needed to

show the reasoning behind the

design, board chair Bridget Williams

said.

“There isn’t a narrative

explaining why we got that particular

option,” Williams said.

“It’s about taking people on

the journey.”

The submission requested

more information about other

options for the intersection “so

that the community has the

opportunity to decide which option

would work best for them”.

“The board supports safety

improvements at this intersection

. . . but does not support

stopping traffic from using

Aorangi Road to cross Wairakei

Road,” the submission stated.

It was also concerned that

the city council design did not

match the reality of the intersection

layout, Williams said.

“It gave the illusion of the two

roads not marrying up.”

However, city council head of

transport Lynette Ellis said the

designs were accurate.

“Aorangi Rd on either side of

Wairakei Rd are proposed to be

Intersection plan ‘unworkable’

In Brief

slightly offset from each other,

although are currently aligned,”

Ellis said.

The board also criticised the

proposed 40km/h speed limit

for the route its submission,

arguing that narrower streets

would encourage lower speeds

without changing the speed

limit.

“The board recommends that

the speed limit is reviewed after

the cycleway is completed to

provide an evidence base for

whether a reduced speed limit is

necessary.”

The city council had developed

two options for the

cycleway design along both Ilam

and Aorangi Rds.

In Ilam Rd, the choice was

between one-way cycleways

on each side of the road or a

CROSS-

ROADS: A

city council

proposal

would see

traffic unable

to turn right

onto Wairakei

Rd from

Aorangi Rd.

SLOAN

two-way cycleway on the west

side of the road, and the board

supported the latter.

For Aorangi Rd, the choice

was between a two-way

cycleway on the west side of the

road or a shared path for cyclists

and pedestrians on the west

side of the road, and the board

supported a shared path.

Retaining more car parks

for area residents was the

motivation behind both

choices.

Removing the silver birch

trees on Aorangi Rd was a proposal

supported by the board,

provided two trees were planted

to replace every tree taken out.

The board has asked to speak

to its submission at the project

hearing, although no date has

yet been set for this.

GRANTS ALLOCATED FOR

SUMMER EVENTS

A total of $3990 has been

allocated to those planning

community events this summer

in the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

area. The funds are part of the

city council’s Summer with your

Neighbours programme. The

sum has been divided between 36

applicants, with grants ranging

from $200 to $30.

KITCHEN UPGRADE

RECEIVES FUNDING

The $126,000 Northgate

Community Services Trust

kitchen upgrade project has

secured another $5000 of

funding. The grant was approved

by the Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

from its discretionary response

fund at a meeting on Monday.

This follows a $4000 grant made

by the Papanui Innes Community

Board in its most recent

meeting.

TIMBER UPGRADES

ALONG CREEK TO START

City council contractor Citycare

warns the work starting this week

along Papanui Creek and the

Upper Dudley Creek diversion

may result in elevated levels of

noise and traffic. The work is set

to continue until mid-January

STRONG BOND: Tegan Lawrence, Minh Lengoc, Rebecca Fraser and Nicole

Sullivan are reunited at Jellie Park pool following Minh’s cardiac arrest.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE

Quick response

saves swimmer’s life

WHEN 74-YEAR-OLD Minh Lengoc

visited Jellie Park for his daily swim on

May 24 he had no inkling that his heart

was about to stop beating.

The retired scientist had spent about 45

minutes swimming lengths in the pool –

as he did most days – and was gathering

up his gear when he went into sudden

cardiac arrest and collapsed.

Lifeguards Kristina Sammut and Nicole

Sullivan were quickly at his side. Finding

him unresponsive and without a pulse,

they immediately started cardiopulmonary

resuscitation while other staff called

111 and ran to fetch one of the facility’s

two Automatic External Defibrillators and

oxygen.

Both Sammut and Sullivan were taught

CPR as part of their lifeguard training,

but Sullivan admitted doing CPR on a real

person was very different to doing it on a

mannequin.

She could hear Minh’s ribs crack as she

pumped his chest, but she knew she had

to keep going, so she fought back her tears

and concentrated on what she needed to

do to keep him alive.

Lifeguard supervisor Tegan Lawrence

had heard the emergency call come over

the radio and rushed to the pool to help

resuscitate Minh.

Lawrence gave him oxygen while the

other two lifeguards took turns doing

compressions. They then used the

defibrillator to shock Minh’s heart back

into a normal rhythm before

THE ST ALBANS Cricket Club is ready

to roll this season after receiving a $10,000

equipment grant to be used for buying

cricket balls.

It is one of multiple grants made by the

New Zealand Community Trust in the

Canterbury region last month, totalling

$1,424,688.

Other grants to organisations based in

the Nor’West area made by the trust from

the proceeds of gambling machines it

operates include:

-$125,000 to Canterbury Hockey

Association for salaries of the technical

development officer, hockey development

manager, facilities caretaker manager

competitions and events manager,

paramedics arrived.

Minh was rushed to hospital where he

spent five days in an induced coma and

underwent open heart surgery.

“The doctors said I was a very lucky

person because nine out of 10 people

would have died,’’ Minh said.

Doctors were initially concerned the

cardiac arrest may have starved his brain

of oxygen and caused irreparable damage,

but miraculously Minh was able to be

discharged from hospital after three weeks.

One of the first things he did was return

to Jellie Park to thank the staff who had

saved his life. It was very emotional

moment for him and his wife Thao, who at

one stage had been planning his funeral.

It was emotional too for all the staff who

had rushed to his aid.

“When we got the opportunity to see

him again, I hugged him and bawled my

eyes out,’’ said Sullivan.

City council head of recreation,

sports and events Nigel Cox said he was

incredibly proud of how the entire team at

Jellie Park responded to the emergency.

“They stayed calm and applied their

emergency training and as a result Dr

Lengoc is still alive today. You couldn’t ask

for a better outcome than that. The staff

have formed a real bond with Dr Lengoc

and it is going to be really great for them

to see Dr Lengoc back swimming at the

pool,’’ Cox said.

Minh is planning to restart his regular

swim sessions in November.

Sports clubs get grants

community participation manager,

community development manager and

chief executive.

-$50,000 to Touch Canterbury for

salaries of the regional development

manager and administration, junior

module and representative

coordinator.

-$35,000 to Waimairi Tennis Club for

salaries of the club manager, head coach,

and junior administrator.

-$7000 to St Bede’s College for rugby

jerseys.

-$5000 to Merivale Papanui Cricket

Club to pay for a contractor.

-$2500 to St Albans Park Sports Club for

chemicals and pesticides.

My vets and nurses are

always up for a challenge

and castrating a pig is right

up there. Vet Kirsty was up

for the job and needed to

do quite a bit of research

on safest drugs to use and

the surgical procedure itself

which is different from a dog

castration.

Hatter, a 6 month old pig

weighing 24kg was neutered

so he didn’t breed with the 2

year old Kune Kune pig, Alice,

both who reside in the house,

often seen draped over the

sofas. Hatter was adopted

when only a few weeks old

as he was found alone on a

sheep farm. He needed round

the clock feeding and nursing

and has ended up being a

great companion for Alice.

Hatter trotted into the clinic and

headed into his hospital run for his

day in the dog ward. Imagine the

dogs surprise seeing a pig walk into

their space. Macy was terrified when

she heard Hatter squeal and made

a run for my consult room. Pigs are

very vocal and get stressed easily

which is why Kirsty gave Hatter

Midazolam

up his nose

to chill him

out before

his sedative.

Kirsty placed

an intravenous

catheter,

which she

read was

difficult, but

she got the

vein in one

shot. Once

sedated,

Hatter was

masked with

Oxygen and

Isoflurane,

attached to

blood pressure

and SpO2

monitoring

equipment

and then fully

prepared

for surgical

castration. Pigs

easily so he was actively warmed

with hotties and heat pads. The

surgery itself went well and Kirsty

placed intradermal dissolving sutures

so Hatter had nothing to chew out!!

His recovery was fantastic and he

was pleased to see his mum on

pickup.

Hatter is really smart and has learnt

commands, enjoys enrichment

games and

lots of cuddles.

When asked

to lie down,

he flops down

expecting a

belly rub. He

gets on with all

his extended

family including

two Bichons,

Ben and Cooper,

a bossy Turkey

4 cats. He really

sportsman with a disability.

“I feel happy and proud to represent

my school,” Luka said.

He has won titles at club,

school, regional and national

championship events.

The South Island Secondary

School Swim Championships in

June went particularly well, and

he took home three gold medals,

coming first in three para

categories – 100m freestyle, 50m

freestyle and 50m breaststroke.

He has also qualified to take

part in the next DSISA World

games to be held in Portugal in

2022.

“I think anyone can swim.

Everyone needs to be safe in the

water,” Luka said.

His achievements were due

to plenty of training, and he

practised up to five times a week

as part of Jellie Park’s Jasi Swim

Club.

“I do practice a lot. It keeps me

fit and healthy and I am getting

faster and faster. . . I like having

muscles.”

However swimming was also

fun and a good way to make

friends, he said.

‘His dedication has created a legacy’

JOHN “THOMMO” Thompson

was a driving force at the

Burnside West Christchurch

University Cricket Club.

Club secretary Gareth Gibson

said the Merivale man, who

died last week aged 85, had filled

many roles at the club, from

president to groundsman.

“He spent countless hours over

the years on pitch preparation

for Saturday games on Burnside

Park, but also on preparing

pitches for junior cricket,”

Gibson said.

“His dedication has created a

legacy at Burnside Oval, which

continues to be recognised as

one of the finest club cricket

grounds in New Zealand.”

Joining the club in 1958,

Thommo was made a life member

in 1992 and served as club

president from 1983-1985 and

again from 2008.

He was also a keen player in

the club’s second-grade team

through the 1960s.

“He was a medium pace

bowler and an aggressive lowerorder

left-hand batsman,” said

Gibson.

“Later, for over 20 years, he

was a regular member of the

Burnside presidents’ team where,

in spite of the good-natured camaraderie

of the grade, he never

lost his competitive instincts.”

Gibson said: “Rather than a

vocal comment at a beaten batsman,

he developed a very good

stare and pose which clearly

indicated to the batsman that

he had very little time left at the

crease.”

Thommo also acted as the

club’s delegate to the Canterbury

Cricket Association, which made

him a life member of the association

in 2001.

He was also an underage selector

for Canterbury teams from

1983 until 1996.

A dedicated and no-nonsense

approach also made Thommo

the automatic choice to manage

the Canterbury Shell Cup and

Trophy team for five years beginning

with the 1996/97 season,

Gibson said.

PITCH PERFECT:

John “Thommo”

Thompson filled

many roles at the

Burnside West

Christchurch

University Cricket

Club over the years,

from president to

groundsman. ​

“On and off the park,

Thommo’s service to the cricket

was immeasurable. He was the

true embodiment of a good

club man, and he will be missed

dearly by us all.”

Hospital care package initiative extended

SUPPORT: Joy and Stella Reid prepare one of the care

packages aimed to comfort parents and caregivers who

are in hospital with their sick children.

THE CHARITY One Mother to

Another is boosting support to

Christchurch Hospital after chief

executive Joy Reid experienced

the distress of an unwell child

needing hospital care.

“We spent many nights in

the paediatric medical ward – a

ward One Mother to Another

did not, at the time, support,”

Reid said.

Starting this month, the charity

will now provide 270 monthly

care packages to the hospital’s

paediatric medical and surgical

wards, as well as The Princess

Margaret Hospital mothers and

babies unit.

The Somerfield mother of

three knows all too well the fear

and heartache of having a child

in hospital.

All three of her children have

spent time in various neonatal

and paediatric wards and it has

served to make her determined

to help others in similar circumstances.

In 2016, Reid co-founded One

Mother to Another, a charity

that encourages parents and

caregivers in hospital with their

children, together with friend

Christina Buckland, after both

women experienced the pain

of having a child so sick they

needed hospital care.

For the past five years, the

charity has provided care packages

to three South Island neonatal

wards and Christchurch’s

intensive care unit.

Earlier this year, Reid found

herself again in the vulnerable

position of being in and out of

hospital as her new daughter

Annabelle struggled with health

challenges in her first months

of life.

“I was again reminded how

distressing it is to be in this

situation. No matter your age,

culture or social status, watching

your child struggle and not being

able to fix it is a huge burden

for parents.

SPECIAL

DELIVERY: Joy

Reid delivers

One Mother to

Another care

packages to

Christchurch

Hospital.

“While in the ward, I became

determined to find a way to

expand our care package initiative

so we could encourage and

support the parents and carers in

the paediatric wards too.”

Paediatric surgical ward

charge nurse manager Tarsha

Greer said family stays in the

hospital were often unexpected

and stressful.

“It is fantastic for our staff to

be able to provide families and

whanau with a small treat of

pure kindness,” Greer said.

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS

Halloween is coming!

Ray White Papanui and Rotary

Papanui are delighted to put on this

free Papanui community activity

for children 12 years and under

(accompanied by an adult). Come

in your costume and join in the

Halloween fun at St James Park!

We have made changes to our normal

format to comply with current Covid

2 levels so this year there will be a

contactless Halloween character

scavenger hunt for the children to

participate in.

The characters will be available for the

children to find from 4.30pm - 5.30pm

on Friday 29 October 2021 at St James

Park, Papanui.

Due to this being under Alert Level 2

rules and contactless you will need to

download (and print if you prefer) the

scavenger hunt sheet and bring it with

you. You can find the scavenger hunt

sheet by either:

What makes a property management expert?

While I was driving around the

city on the weekend I spotted a

large signboard boasting “Property

Management Experts” and it got me

thinking about what gives a person

the right to claim the title of being

a property management expert? Is

it perhaps someone who has taken

care of their own small portfolio of

properties? Perhaps someone who has

been working in real estate sales? Or

someone who joined the industry a

year or two ago?

In actual fact, none of those

backgrounds would, in my opinion,

make someone an expert in their field,

and like anything, expertise comes

with both knowledge and experience.

With property management currently

being an unregulated industry it does

mean that anyone could make those

claims regardless of qualifications or

• Coming and collecting the

scavenger hunt sheet from the Ray

White Papanui office prior to the

day | 7 Winston Avenue, Level 1,

Papanui

• Email papanui.nz@raywhite.com

and we will send you a copy, or

• Scan the QR code and download

your scavenger hunt sheet

Rotary Papanui has been serving the

local community for over 60 years and

is proud to partner with Ray White

Papanui to bring some Halloween fun

for our Papanui families to enjoy. We

had such a blast last year and can’t wait

to do it all over again, level 2 style!

COVID-19 protocol

will be followed in

accordance with

the current Level 2

status.

experience, so if you are contacting an

“expert” make sure you find out what

exactly it is that makes them experts!

Experience is the real key when it

comes to property management,

as every day we come across a new

scenario and often a new problem to

solve, so the longer you have been

doing the job, the more likely you will

have the tools and solutions required.

On top of this, ongoing education is

now more than ever so important

as legislation is constantly being

introduced, with the Amendments

to the Residential Tenancies Act

becoming part of the industry’s

everyday language!

If you are looking at employing an

expert property manager some of

the key things to look out for are –

experience, training, qualifications,

systems and processes (including

an audited trust account), flexibility,

tenacity, problem-solving,

communication skills, determination,

and often a thick skin. While some of

these characteristics may lead you to

think you need an absolutely “hard

nosed” person to do the job, it is also

important that your property manager

is great at working with people and

has empathy because great working

relationships with their tenants as

well as their landlords will ultimately

convert to better outcomes for

everyone.
