June sees red over

black power box

St Albans

resident

wins battle

to have it

moved

• By Chris Barclay

A ST ALBANS resident who

claims the unique character of

the suburb is under threat from

two “cookie cutter” housing

developments has had a victory on

a small scale – the relocation of a

power source she tripped over.

June Peka (above), who has lived

in St Albans for 40 years, could not

prevent a five-townhouse project

being constructed next door to her

property but she has succeeded in

having a potential hazard being

removed.

Peka ventured outside to take

photos of the ‘blood moon’ near

total lunar eclipse last month when

her knee struck the rigid black

plastic-encased boundary box

positioned on asphalt outside a new

development at 138 Westminster St.

“I didn’t fall on my knees but it

was pretty close,” she said.

Board’s meeting schedule slashed,

greater engagement proposed

• By Fiona Ellis

IF THE public won’t come

to its representatives, its

representatives will go to the

public.

This is the hope Papanui

ward councillor Mike Davidson

expressed during a meeting of

the Papanui-Innes Community

Board, in which big changes

were made to the board’s 2022

meeting schedule.

The board will cut its meetings

from once a fortnight to once a

month in the new year.

However, the board will also

hold at least five of their usual

briefings at various locations

within the wards, with the

provision to hold a 30-minute

live-streamed public forum.

The amendment to set to a

minimum number of travelling

briefings was led by Davidson.

“Part of the reason we don’t

have huge community engagement

in our board meetings is

sometimes we’re not accessible,”

Davidson said.

“I think we need to put ourselves

into our community more

and give them the ability to actually

come to us.”

A report included in the meeting

agenda stated that holding

either one or two ordinary

meetings per month allowed for

Cotter, Emma Norrish, Emma Twaddell and Simon Britten. The board will be meeting

all items of business to be progressed

on a regular basis.

During the meeting, board

member Simon Britten commented

that some of the board’s

fortnightly meeting agendas

were ‘a bit light’.

Member Ali Jones said she was

wary of changing location except

in exceptional circumstances

because the board’s usual meeting

room at the Papanui Service

Centre was equipped with

New clinic provides

treatments in private location

A brand-new cosmetic clinic, Satini, has just

opened in Ferrymead.

Owned and operated by medical professional

Dr Nadja Haub, Satini offers an extensive range

of cosmetic treatments for men and women,

as well as lifestyle and nutritional advice to

help clients maintain optimum health and

wellbeing.

Originally trained as a paediatrician, Dr

Haub worked in several countries before

gaining her aesthetic medicine qualifications

in Australia. After moving to New Zealand,

she began practising as a GP at New Brighton,

where she has been for the last 10 years.

Now, with the launch of Satini, Dr Haub

says this new venture has been prompted by

her long held and deep interest in aesthetic

medicine.

“I wanted to help people by enhancing their

appearance, which would also help them to feel

happier and more confident,” she explains.

“Satini offers a holistic approach to aesthetic

medicine with an extensive range of cosmetic

treatments as well as healthy lifestyle advice

that’s tailored to each client’s unique needs and

genetic make-up.”

Dr Haub regularly attends conferences to

keep up to date with new treatments and

methods in what she describes as a “fastdeveloping

field”.

An important point of difference she

believes Satini offers in comparison to similar

businesses is its very private location in

Waterman Place.

“That’s why I chose to establish the clinic

here. We also offer VIP appointments where

an individual client is the only one here during

their session.”

Another aspect of Satini Dr Haub believes

clients will appreciate is the relaxing ambience

the beautifully fitted-out clinic offers, also that

clients are never made to feel rushed.

Dr Nadja Haub looks forward to welcoming clients at

her new Ferrymead clinic.

Clients are invited to spend time in the Relaxation

Room following treatment.

“We have a relaxation room where clients can

spend time after their session, put on make-up,

have a drink or just wait until they feel ready

to leave.”

Pricing for Satini’s services is transparent,

Dr Haub says, and there is no membership

requirement or contracts to sign. The full range

of treatments, which include Botox, chemical

peels, dermal fillers and hair loss treatment for

men, is listed on the Satini website.

Satini also has a selection of medical-grade

skincare and hair-care products available for

purchase.

Satini Cosmetic Clinic is located at Unit

1, 27 Waterman Place, Ferrymead. It is

currently open Thursday to Saturday. For more

information and to book treatments visit

www.satini.co.nz.

expensive audio equipment, best

suited to the purpose.

“The room is made for communication,”

Jones said.

Board chairwoman Emma

Norrish initially did not support

the changes.

“I am not supportive of moving

to once-a-month meetings,

and it’s, for me, the public access

and transparency issue,” Norrish

said.

However, she supported the

changes once the briefings were

set to included live-streamed

public forums, seconding Davidson’s

amendment.

There would still be the option

to schedule additional meetings

if the board found it needed to in

the new year.

The decision follows in the

footsteps of the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board, which moved to monthly

meetings earlier this year.

At its best or most vital, I think of

culture as a heartbeat – a pulse –

providing purpose and substance for

the people comprising the group. I

imagine a massive tapestry in which

every person has contributed to the

pattern, leaving a distinct impression,

and that all of this creates something

tangible and recognizable for others

wanting to be part of that culture.

We are all influenced by culture. In the sporting

arena, culture is easily evident in the polarized

extremes of winning and losing. A great

team will often demonstrate a strong culture

enhanced by equally strong leadership – our

national rugby team often comes to mind –

whilst a team that is struggling to win or even

connect will have nothing binding the players

together. Perhaps it’s due to a preference for

individual game plans and personal glory

rather than teamwork based on shared

success.

Business is no different. Cultures within

workplaces are critical in establishing

values and beliefs, shared traditions and an

identity based on songs, symbols and stories.

When this goes well, it looks like a picture

of personal responsibility combined with

collective success, feelings of being valued

and the absence of a sense of entitlement. In

an industry like real estate, collective group

success can sometimes get replaced by

more individualized pursuits, and leadership

becomes an essential element in ensuring the

culture isn’t altered because of this.

Obvious success can be a sign that a culture is

robust, but it’s what sits under the success that

really needs identifying:

Preparing and training – this means knowing

what the goal is, having the right tools and

being supported in your journey. This also

requires agility. Sometimes the gameplan

needs to change and you must be astute

enough to do that.

Caring about the person next to you – it seems

obvious, but for some individuals this is really

hard and it’s not on their radar … though it

needs to be if the culture you are striving for is

about lifting everyone and not just the chosen

few.

Having standards and values – ‘this is how we

do it’, then doing it proudly and in the absolute

best possible way. Remember, these levels

won’t stand still. They must be continually

reviewed and improved on. Culture benefits

from being dynamic; the opposite would

mean stagnation.

I’ve learnt even more about this lately, having

spent time with some of New Zealand’s most

renowned sporting leaders and legends.

To a man, of which there were two (and

one incredible woman), they confirmed the

importance of culture, vision, leadership and

mateship. And, finally, ‘what you do off field

reflects how you play on field’. After all, life itself

is a field, so to speak.

So, there you have it. A tiny snapshot of what

culture can mean. But the story needs one

more question: what are you as an individual

doing for the culture of the group or groups

you belong to? Are you adding to its pulse or

tapestry, or taking from it?

Life is made better when you add.

‘Disaster waiting to happen’

• From page 1

Apart from the location,

Peka said the issue was the box,

which connects properties to

the power network, is the same

colour as the footpath.

“It’s a disaster waiting to

happen. They (the boxes) are

everywhere but they’re not in

that sort of a place. That’s a

stupid place.

“We’ve got old folks around

the corner that use it (footpath)

every day and a couple of

blind people around there that

navigate with their white sticks

around here, there’s school kids

with scooters.”

A neighbour placed a couple

of orange road zones in the

vicinity of the box but they

had been removed and taken

further down the road.

“It just gets weirder every

day,” Peka said.

The box was originally

behind a fence bordering the

construction site and was only

visible once that was removed.

“It’s sitting out there on its

own just begging to be fallen

over.”

An Orion New Zealand

spokesperson had good news

for Peka on Monday after being

alerted to the issue.

“We have made the decision

to move that boundary box.

The work will be undertaken

in January, and we will put

cones on either side of it in the

meantime to make sure people

OBSTACLE: The boundary box’s original site.

see where it currently is,” the

spokesperson said.

“They are generally positioned

on the property boundary

and it appears since placing

it here, there has been some

change to the boundary.”

Peka was pleased to learn the

power company would act.

“That’s excellent, let’s hope

nobody kills themselves before

then,” she said.

Peka stlll lamented the style

of double-storey apartment being

built in the area.

“They’re pretty awful in bulk.

They’re hugely visible, and in

my opinion, ugly. There’s no

trees around them, they’re

plain and they’re white and

grey and black. They’re cookie

cutter things,” she said.

Peka forwarded her concerns

about the developments to the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board but the city council

ultimately allowed the

Wolfbrook Property Group

projects at Westminster St and

nearby Mersey St to proceed.

Peka believed the developments

contradicted the

Severn Design Guide which

encompasses a portion of the

St Albans area.

While the Westminster

St site is technically located

outside the design guide, it sits

only a street-width away from

its boundary.

The Severn Design Guide,

which was published last year

in May, is identified within the

District Plan and officially recognises

the space as a character

area.

The purpose of a character

area is to ensure distinct characteristics

are either identified,

retained or enhanced when

properties are built on or redeveloped.

The guide promotes a

high level of street amenity

including established front

gardens, generous street

widths, mature street trees

and grassed berms as well as

a high proportion of original

houses from early to mid 20thcentury,

primarily consisting

of single-storey wooden

bungalows.

The character guide also calls

for new housing in the area to

be complementary to the old,

with a consistent size, form,

scale and roof profile among

houses.

The two developments will

have trees and gardens towards

the front of the property but

they are two-storey which goes

against the guide.

Leaking water a common problem

LEAKING water supplies are

once again the most common

reason why residents of the

Papanui-Innes Community

Board area are contacting the

city council.

A ticket report has

revealed a breakdown of

issues that residents contacted

the city council about

between October 20 and

November 19.

The report shows leaking

water supplies to be the most

common cause of complaint,

with 178 tickets, or jobs, undertaken

for this.

Water leaks were also the

top issue between July 21 and

August 19, although a comparatively

fewer 136 tickets

related to the issue.

The second and third most

widespread issues in the most

recent report were damaged

bins and uncollected bins,

with 150 and 107 tickets

respectively.

From broken pieces to beautiful artworks

• By Emily Moorhouse

AN ART group that turns

broken china from the 2011

earthquakes into mosaics has

unveiled their latest masterpiece.

The group, originally called

Crack’d for Christchurch, was

formed after they advertised

asking for people to donate their

broken china.

The idea was to make a

memorial for the earthquakes,

but the group kept receiving

donations and have since

made three mosaics in the city,

the latest being a seascape in

Carnaby Lane in New Brighton.

It took them 10 months to

finish.

The group is now called the

Christchurch Mosaic Art Group.

Member Sharon Wilson said it

was all about turning something

broken into something beautiful

again.

“We’re trying to give things

that would go to the tip new life,”

she said. “It’s giving something

that’s donated by the people back

to people to enjoy.”

The group has created a

chair and ottoman that sit in

the botanical gardens and a

surfboard, which they gifted to

the New Brighton Library.

They meet every six months to

clean and put sealer on the chair,

which they spent 18 months

making, to protect it from

the elements.

SEASCAPE: The mosaic took the artists 10 months to complete and was transferred into place in sections.

From left, Kathy Kitchener, Gillian Henare, Sharon Wilson, Helen Campbell, Kathryn Inns, Diane Champion, Jayna Gerrard

and Jennie Cooper.

PHOTOS: HENARE FAMILY ​

Wilson said when they first

began receiving the china it

had notes written on the pieces,

revealing family members who

had passed down the china to

the current owner.

Wilson said they were donated

so much china the seascape

piece was made from the

leftovers they had stored

in different members’

houses.

“Sometimes someone will

move house so it will go to

someone else’s,” she said. “It

moves around a bit.”

Wilson said making the

mosaics was “for the sake of

beautifying places that aren’t

necessarily very beautiful”.

New longboard competition open to all

• By Kristie Boland

THREE SUMNER teens

have created a new surfing

competition for young

longboarders.

Point Surf Team junior

club members Charlie Wise,

Will Jamieson and Jack Tyro

saw a gap in the market for

longboarding events in Sumner

so they made their own.

“It’s all about bringing the

cultural aspects of traditional

longboarding back to Sumner,”

said 17-year-old Charlie.

“There are some competitions

for longboarders here, but they

are generally invite only. We

wanted to make this available to

everyone.”

The trio also wanted to use

the event as a way to help raise

funds for Thanks Foundation,

a non-profit organisation that

creates opportunities for young

people of all abilities through

surfing, skating and skiing while

focusing on their health and

wellbeing.

Thanks Foundation, which

will be filming the event, will be

gifted with the proceeds from

the competition in the form of

equipment to help towards their

film-making programme.

Charlie, Will and Jack got

together with contest director

Steve Tyro in early November

to discuss running a

competition in the Sumner

area that was affordable and

accessible to anyone who wanted

to compete.

The Exit Surf Tuawera

Longboard Classic will be held

on December 18 at the Esplanade

in Sumner, with open and U20

divisions. The one-day event

will feature longboarding and

original short boards pre-1985.

They hope to attract 72 surfers,

the maximum number for a oneday

event.

Head judge Grant

Cochrane said “the judges

will be encouraged to reward

traditional longboarding moves

performed with style and flow in

critical parts of the wave.”

Steve Tyro said: “Even though

community and fun is a priority,

the competition will be hot.”

Wise, with Will on the water practising for the Exit Surf

Tuawera Longboard Classic.

Leaders in Learning

The Peter Bryant Memorial Scholarship Award 2021 Dux of the School

Angelina Narayan

This is an annual award, established by the Board

of Trustees, to acknowledge the outstanding

contribution to Burnside High School of the late

Dr Peter Bryant, in his role as the Chairperson of

the Board.

This year’s Dux recipient, Angelina Narayan

attended Burnside Primary School and

Westburn, where she was involved in Lit Quiz,

drums, keyboard and writing for the school

newspaper. Even at this young age, creativity,

focus and determination were all qualities noted

by teachers.

Early on at Burnside High School Angelina was

identified as someone who excelled academically

across the board with teachers describing her as

an independent and highly competent student

and someone who was “kind and cheerful”.

While academic pursuits have been a key focus

for Angelina she

also turned her hand

to a range of extra

curricular offerings

including pistol

shooting, robotics and

dance.

Throughout her time

at this school she has

received numerous

academic awards,

most recently the cups

for First Place in Year

12 in English, Spanish,

Physics and Chemistry.

This year she has

stepped up to a

number of extra curricular activities including

Magna Voce, Environment Group and Student

Support Prefect as well as helping run a number

of school social initiatives. In July this year, this

student received the Spac Pac Supreme Award

for Academic Achievement.

She has also developed her creative side,

writing poetry, and this year was runner up in

the National Schools’ Poetry Award. She has

recently had the pleasure of attending a poetry

writers workshop in Wellington.

Angelina is a truly multi-talented individual

achieving an extremely high level of achievement

across a number of subjects.

Currently Angelina has accepted a place at

Otago University with a substantial scholarship

but is exploring her options, including overseas

universities.

Angelina’s motivation is drawn from, and I quote:

“just wanting to be proud of myself and know

that I’ve done the best that I could”. We are

proud of her and celebrate her successes as the

top academic student in the school.

Proxime Accessit Peter Rowe Cup for Musicianship 2021

Ai Yamada

Our Proxime Accessit for 2021 is

Ai Yamada. Ai is an exceptional

student who excelled in all of

her subjects this year, and has

been described by teachers as

“outstanding and highly diligent”.

She combines a prodigious

intelligence with a focused and

determined work ethic. Ai has

already attained sufficient credits

at Excellence level for an overall

Excellence endorsement this year,

with external examinations still to

complete. She loves an academic

challenge and has taken part in a

number of competitions throughout

secondary school, most recently

the NZ Engineering Science

Competition 2021, the NZ Physics

and Mathematics Competition

2021, and the National Secondary

Schools’ Case Competition 2021.

In addition to these numerous

Sportswoman of the Year

academic successes, she has been

very involved in sports and extracurricular

activities at school. Ai has

been consistent in her generous

contribution to a wide range of

school pursuits.

She has, in 2021, navigated a

formidable workload and still come

out the other side as close to the

top as you can get. She is interested

in studying Physics and Nuclear

Science or Engineering, with a view

to future involvement in the energy

sector.

Elisa Bird

Elisa is an outstanding

all-round musician

who has contributed

to the department at

the highest level in

her three years at the

school. She moved

to us from Middleton

Grange School as a

member of the SMP

Woodwind class in

2019 and immediately

began seeking

out every musical

opportunity possible.

In the orchestral field she has

been the clarinet section leader

for the Burnside Orchestra and a

member of the UC Christchurch

Youth Orchestra and New Zealand

Secondary Schools’ Symphony

Orchestra.

In chamber music, she has reached

the National finals of the contest

Sportsman of the Year

for two consecutive years,

once on clarinet, once

on saxophone. Elisa has

been a section leader of

the Symphonic Band and

this year, in addition to her

responsibilities as an Arts

Leader, took on a student

conductor role with the

Junior Concert Band where

her natural leadership

qualities came to the fore.

As a saxophonist she

has underpinned the

saxophone section of

the Big Band and Funk Band for

three years, playing both Baritone

and Tenor and winning numerous

awards along the way.

All of this she undertakes with a

never-failing smile and an admirable

sense of service – to the Music

Department, the school and as

a mentor to younger musicians

following in her steps.

commitment to Powerlifting this

year, attending every training and

continuously focusing on gains in

strength and technique.

Alfie’s commitment has paid off

and he has broken three national

national squat record with a squat

of 170kg, the deadlift record

with a lift of 196kg and the total
