• By Chris Barclay

ZACH TUCKER has accelerated

past another career goal, with the

talented Medbury School kart

racer winning overseas at the first

attempt.

The 11-year-old kept his nerve

after being overtaken late in final

of his cadet 12 class at the City

of Melbourne Titles on Sunday,

coolly executing a passing manoeuvre

as the chequered flag

loomed at the end of 17 hotlycontested

laps.

Zach, who represents New

Zealand at October’s ROK

Superfinal in Italy, qualified in

pole position at the culmination

of two days of racing in his

36-strong division.

“There was lots of pressure. I

led all the way until the third to

last corner but I passed him back

on the hair pin with one corner to

go,” he said.

“I’m very proud of our team

and I really appreciate all the

messages of support from friends

and family,” he said.

Zach qualified to race in Italy

after defending his Vortex Mini

ROK national title in Wellington

in June.

Before racing overseas for

the first time, Tucker also secured

his first national schools title

in Invercargill, claiming the

Vortex Mini ROX crown last

month.

Zach’s coach Matt Hamilton

was convinced he was destined

to achieve his long-term goal of

emulating Shane van Gisbergen

and driving across the Tasman in

the Supercars Championship.

“I’ve no doubt Zach has what

it takes to succeed. Over the past

three seasons he’s been almost

unbeatable.”

Australian title for karter Zach

QUICK LEARNER: Talented kart racer Zach Tucker made a smooth transition to

Australian circuits, winning his class at the City of Melbourne Titles last weekend.

Message

in a bottle

found

inside war

memorial

A HAND-written note listing

the names of the original

stonemasons who worked on the

Citizens’ War Memorial has been

found inside the monument’s

concrete core.

The 85-year-old note was tightly

rolled-up inside a glass bottle that

was found when the memorial was

being deconstructed.

The memorial has been restored

and relocated to a new spot in

Cathedral Square, near where the

police kiosk used to be.

“It was a fluke discovery,” city

council head of vertical capital

delivery Brent Smith said.

“The contractor was working on

dismantling the concrete core of

the memorial when a big chunk of

concrete broke off, revealing the

glass bottle.

“If the concrete had not broken

in that exact spot, we would never

have found it.”

The glass bottle was handedover

to a team of conservators

from Canterbury Museum who

delicately drilled through the

bottle’s glass stopper to reach the

note inside.

However, the neck of the bottle

was too narrow and the note too

fragile because some moisture had

seeped in.

They had to wait several weeks

for the rolled-up piece of paper

to dry out before they could have

another go at extracting it.

The new housing complex will include a mix of mostly two-storey one, two, three, four and five-bedroom units. A communal garden and play area and

plenty of recreational green space will also feature in the new redevelopment.

Old houses make way for new homes

CONSTRUCTION is beginning

this month on a new Kāinga

Ora housing redevelopment in

Bryndwr.

Kāinga Ora Homes and

Communities (formerly known

as Housing New Zealand) is

building 34 new dry, warm

homes for people in need on the

empty 8124 sq m block of land

bordered by Clyde and Aorangi

Rds and Bevin Pl.

There will be a mix of

mostly two-storey one to five

bedroom units in the complex,

a communal garden and play

area and plenty of recreational

green space. Miles Construction

is undertaking the work, which

is expected to be completed in

stages before the end of 2023.

Liz Krause, Kāinga Ora

regional director Canterbury,

says there is an urgent need

for more warm, dry homes in

Christchurch. The new homes

will be built on Kāinga Ora land

earmarked for redevelopment

after the 2010-11 Canterbury

earthquakes.

“Many of our homes in this

area are more than 50 years old

and were built at a time when

the quarter acre section was the

norm. One of the ways we’re

addressing the housing shortage

is by making better use of the

land we already own. We’re

demolishing outdated homes

and replacing them with more

modern homes on the same

land.

“Building on this site will

enable us to provide more homes

for people and their whānau in

an area of the city that has good

access to transport, schools,

shops and recreational facilities,”

Krause said.

Eight older existing houses

that were already on the land

were demolished last year to

make way for the development.

A new road that links Clyde

Rd to Aorangi Rd and new

footpaths have already been

created as part of stage one of the

project. Wastewater pipes have

also been laid.

Plans for the new complex

were shared with the

community in November

2020 and Kāinga Ora will

continue to keep in touch with

neighbours and the wider

community as construction

progresses.

The redevelopment is one of

many planned for Bryndwr and

Burnside. Over the next few

years, Kāinga Ora is expected to

build up to 113 new units across

14 sites in the two suburbs. These

will replace around 39 older

units.

Discovery a reminder of rich history

• From page 1

When the note was finally unfurled

it was clear some of it had

disintegrated, but the handwritten

names of five stonemasons

who worked on the memorial

were still visible.

The date the note was written

- February 1937 – was also

visible.

“The note is a bit worse for

wear but it is an amazing link to

the past that could easily have

laid undiscovered,” Smith said.

“I think what this note shows

is that the original stonemasons

were very proud of being part

of building this memorial to the

men and women who lost their

lives in World War 1 and they

wanted their role in the project

to be remembered.

“I am delighted that 85 years

on we have recovered the note

they hid and can publicly acknowledge

them for their skilled

workmanship and the part they

played in creating this cherished

memorial,” Smith said.

For the team of stonemasons

working on the restoration and

relocation of the memorial, the

discovery was special.

“This discovery is a reminder

of the rich history and tradition

we’re helping to preserve,” said

Goldfield Stone stonemason

Regan Shanks.

The city council aims to reveal

the restored memorial in its new

location in time for Armistice

Day commemorations.

DISCOVERY: The bottle containing the small

hand-written note was found inside the Citizens’

War Memorial.

THE ELMWOOD has claimed

Leaders in Learning

Kia ora whānau

Ka whati te tī, ka wana te tī, ka rito te tī

When ti kōuka is tested by the elements,

it builds inner strength, then begins to grow again

Ti kōuka, the historical stand of cabbage

trees on our school grounds, symbolises

how we can manage in these testing times.

No matter what is thrown at these trees,

whether by nature or human activity, they

endure because they are strong, confident,

and remarkably resilient. They hold fast,

bending instead of breaking, then adapt and

grow stronger. We can do the same: face

challenges head on, cope in the short term,

overcome, grow stronger together. This is our mantra in 2022.

It is great to be back together onsite in Term 3 and long may that

continue! I am confident that we will deal with whatever happens;

and assure our community that every effort will be made to recover

lost time and teaching opportunities. With Orange Setting health

protocols still in place, and for the health and safety of our staff and

students, it is important to maintain mask-wearing. In Term 2, our

students respected our requirement to wear a mask indoors to help

protect themselves and others. Please reinforce our expectation

that masks be worn inside the buildings.

Rebuilding our Culture

I appreciate that the disrupted nature of the first two terms, with

extended periods of home learning due to isolation and staff

illness, is unsettling, creates uncertainty and anxiety, and affects

motivation. Despite all the difficulties, Term 2 was busy and

successful and I acknowledge students and staff for their hard work

and commitment. I am proud of how everyone has responded and

adjusted. Thank you to everyone in our school community for your

ongoing support and your genuine desire to do what is best for our

students.

Our school vision is ‘personal excellence and care for others’. We

aim to provide an environment which is positive, supportive and

inclusive, and a safe, friendly atmosphere with high standards

and high expectations of both staff and students. The BHS

Values of Manaakitanga – Be Respectful, Mana – Have Pride and

Rangatiratanga – Strive to Excel provide the framework in which

everyone in our school community thinks, acts, and feels about

ourselves and others. The one thing we can control is our attitude.

I like to approach things positively, trusting that things will work

out well. Living the BHS values, and doing the best we can no

matter what, helps us face challenges head on.

Let’s continue working together to make 2022

a successful year.

We hoped for no disqualifications or sickness but unfortunately

our team experienced all of these factors over the four days of

competition.

At the pool by 7am for a warm up and home around 9pm made for

very long days.

Our relay teams performed exceptionally well especially when you

consider many were open class. With 360 relay teams entered in this

Students win with Cookie Time ‘product’

• By Emily Moorhouse

A CASHMERE High School

student was part of the winning

team for a business challenge,

with their pitch for a healthy

alternative to energy drinks.

Archie MacDonald, 17, took

part in BizVenture Japan, a

48-hour business challenge that

saw students from around New

Zealand and Japan plan and

pitch a business product to a

panel of judges.

This year the business pitch

was centred around Cookie

Time, which has operations in

Japan.

The students were put into

teams and given 48 hours to

address one of two real-world

briefs.

The first focused on a new

product for Cookie Time to

introduce into its Japanese

market, supported by a threeyear

marketing plan.

The second focused on a new

market opportunity for Cookie

Time to introduce into its

existing product range.

MacDonald was the only South

Islander in his team and said

it was exciting to get out of his

comfort zone and take the win.

While he admitted it was

“pretty weird” working so closely

with people he had just met,

it wasn’t long before the team

found common interests and got

along well.

“Naturally there are some

nerves involved for sure, but we

all worked together and all had

different strengths as well,” he

said.

MacDonald was in charge of

financial aspects, which he said

was a challenge as he had never

launched a food product or been

to Japan before.

In spite of this, MacDonald’s

team won the competition with

their idea of Enerugi Cookies

and Sweet Enerugi Senbei

(Japanese rice cakes), combined

with matcha powder.

“Over in Japan there’s a lot

of energy products consumed

everyday . . . so if we could put

that into a Cookie Time cookie,

that’s a more family friendly

option,” MacDonald said.

“Including the energy aspect

into a senbei we thought was a

pretty cool way of linking both

the business and our product to

the Japanese culture.”

MacDonald said the “bragging

rights” and excitement of

winning was “pretty awesome”,

and is hoping to get into the

world of business when he leaves

high school at the end of the

year.

“Having the experience I’ve

got over the last couple of years

is definitely something I’ll be

looking at following in the

future,” he said.

Add some zing to your roast beef

A spicy marinade is

a good way to add

something different

to a traditional meal

Whisky marinade for beef

Serves 3-4

Ingredients

1 cup chopped pitted dates

¼ cup orange juice

1 cup peeled and diced orange

3 cups self-raising flour

¼ tsp salt

50gm chilled butter, chopped

1½ cups milk, warmed

2 tbsp cane sugar

Ingredients

Directions

¼ cup whisky

2 tbsp prepared mustard

3-4 tbsp olive oil

400g beef fillet

freshly ground black pepper

1 cup beef stock

1 tbsp thyme leaves

Directions

Whisk whisky, mustard and 3

tbsp of olive oil until well combined.

Place beef in a plastic bag.

Add marinade. Refrigerate for

60min. Return to room temperature

before cooking.

Preheat grill on high. Remove

meat from marinade and pat dry.

Brush with remaining oil. Season

with black pepper.

Grill for about 8min each side.

To test if done, press thickest part

of meat with your fingertip. The

softer it is the rarer it is; the firmer

it is, the more cooked. Tent with

foil and cover with a thick towel.

Rest for 10min before slicing.

Bring marinade, stock and

thyme to the boil. Simmer for

10min. Serve with the meat.

Roasted tomato, butter

bean, and watercress

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 tsp salt

8 tomatoes

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp brown sugar

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

1 freshly ground black pepper,

to season

1½ cups butter beans

4 handfuls watercress,

100gm almonds, roasted and

salted

2 tsp lemon juice

1 tbsp fresh herbs, such as parsley,

oregano, marjoram, finely

chopped

1 cup creme fraiche

Directions

Preheat the oven to 220 deg C.

Arrange the tomatoes in a dish.

Drizzle over the oil, sprinkle

the salt, pepper and brown sugar.

Finely slice the garlic and add

with the rosemary.

Bake for 20min then let cool.

Combine the butter beans

with the watercress. Arrange

on a platter or individual dishes

then add the tomatoes and the

almonds.

Mix together the creme

fraiche, lemon juice and herbs.

Spoon over the salad before

serving.

Date and orange scones

Serves 6 to 8

Heat oven to 210 deg C. Line a

baking tray with baking paper.

In a bowl, combine the

chopped dates with the orange

juice and cover with plastic wrap.

Microwave for 1-2 minutes, until

the dates absorb the orange juice.

Add the diced orange.

Sift the flour and salt into a

bowl. Rub in the butter until the

mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add the warm milk to the

date and orange mixture, stir to

combine then mix quickly into

the flour with a spatula. Do not

knead.

Turn out on to a floured bench.

Dust the top with flour and pat

out to an even rectangle about

2.5cm thick with your hands.

Cut the mixture into squares

or rounds. Place the scones on

the prepared tray.

Sprinkle with the sugar. Bake

for about 20min.

ADVERTORIAL

Water and environment key

issues for new candidate

Avonhead resident Dr Laly Samuel will be

standing as an independent in the upcoming

local body elections, vying for a seat on the

Christchurch City Council for the Waimairi ward

and one of two seats on the Community Board for

the Waimairi/Fendalton/Harewood Ward .

An academic and scientist, Dr Samuel has

gained extensive international experience and

recognition, with awards including the Garshom

International Award she received in Norway in

2019. She was also named as one of the finalists

in the Women of Influence Award – International

category New Zealand in 2015.

Originally from India, Dr Samuel moved to

New Zealand with her husband and two children

in 2002. Prior to that they lived in Japan for 11

years, where Dr Samuel worked as a scientist and

undertook post-doctoral study.

After three years in Wellington, during which

Dr Samuel was a team leader at the Measurements

Standards Laboratory of New Zealand (MSL)

under the Crown Research Institute, Industrial

Research Ltd , she moved to Christchurch where

she continued her job with MSL under Callaghan

Innovation, a role she held until 2016, before

deciding to take a break from her professional life.

Always part of her busy schedule, community

work now has an even stronger focus for Dr

Samuel. This involves assisting Indian immigrants

to settle into New Zealand life. She is active in her

local church, St Christopher’s, and along with her

husband helps the Kerala community group with

personal and cultural matters.

She is also a member of the Christchurch

Multicultural Council and the Christchurch

International Group.

With her scientific and management

background, her experience with ethnic

communities, as well as her commitment to

helping the community, Dr Samuel believes that

she will be a competent candidate.

If successful, her main focus will be on

removing chlorination from the city’s water,

with reducing the city’s carbon footprint also an

important issue for her. She supports the new

stadium but was disappointed that solar panels

were not included in the design.

“I am also against the 1.4 per cent annual rate

increase that Christchurch people will have to pay

to fund the stadium’s construction. I believe the

government should contribute more.”

The situation Bromley residents are dealing

with also concerns Dr Samuel.

“The odour and pollution being created is

affecting not just Bromley, but many parts of the

city, and the toxic particles can cause health issues.

“With my international scientific and

management experience, I believe I could

contribute a lot to council committees dealing

with issues like these, and many others.”

Her campaign strategy will include meeting

with people as she believes it is important to

interact with people and discuss their issues.

“I already know a significant number of people

in the Waimairi Ward, and I look forward to

meeting many more, and going on to represent

them after the election.”

Waiting

Deb Crosby

Licensed Sales Consultant REAA 2008

deb.crosby@harcourts.co.nz

Have you ever gone past a line

of people and wondered what

exactly they were waiting for,

especially when the conditions

for waiting were uncomfortable?

It was either unbearably hot or inclement,

yet the line continued to grow, confirming

the belief that some things are worth

waiting for.

There’s a psychology to waiting and

it’s been studied as part of business

management and client services, with

some of the most significant findings

coming from Harvard Business School

professor David Maister.

I’m interested in his studies because one

of the most common statements I’m

hearing in the current market is “we’re

waiting” … for the right home, right

time, right price, the right circumstances.

Everything has to be perfect and yet the

chances of perfection, I’ve learnt from

experience, are rare and that wait can

become an infinite one.

Waiting is one of the most dominant of

human frustrations, so it makes sense

to identify what makes the wait more

acceptable.

Here are some of his findings:

1) The more valuable the service, the

longer you’ll wait.

An easy example of this is that people

will wait longer for a doctor to attend to

them than they would a shop assistant,

perceiving the doctor’s service to be

more valuable and deeply integral to their

wellbeing.

Equally, in real estate clients will wait for

the right consultant to manage their

property needs in the knowledge that

this could give them an advantage by

reaching more buyers, having their price

expectations upheld through superior

negotiation skills and giving their

properties a better profile. There’s literally

a ‘waiting list’ of clients for consultants of

this calibre, and it makes sense to want to

work with them.

Some factors make waiting feel even

longer and this realization gives the

service industries – and real estate is

one of these – a chance to rectify this

inconvenience.

2) Uncertain waits are longer than

quantified ones.

Someone who knows that their wish

list home is coming to the market in

approximately one month’s time is more

likely to wait knowing this is definitely

happening versus never having an actual

timeframe communicated to them. The

lesson here is consistent communication

by an agent to keep in touch with their

clients around timeframes – and for

those clients wanting to be notified to

show loyalty and commitment to that

consultant. It’s a two-way street with

significant benefits to both parties.

Here’s a final ‘waiting’ scenario that also

gets played out regularly and affects most

of us:

3) Unfair waits are longer, much longer

than equitable ones. Here’s the scenario.

You’re waiting to be attended to and the

service you receive (or hope to receive) is

interrupted by someone’s phone call. The

sense of unfairness this engenders can

make the wait intolerable and I wonder

how much business is lost chasing the call

over helping the actual person standing

in front of you. I personally struggle with

this the most and will usually move on if I

find myself in this situation.

So, what are you waiting for? What lines

are you physically or figuratively standing

in? I’m currently waiting for spring; I’m

waiting for a full office without the burden

of excessive illness. I’m not waiting for the

market to change greatly for some time,

but I am working with the awareness that

it will, as they always do. So you’re aware

of the most recent market statistics, I can

tell you that 491 properties sold in June,

averaging 33 days on the market and for

an average price of $700,000.

If you’re waiting for that right time, place

or home, know that it’s out there and the

right person will guide you to it.

10 Fun Things to do on a Rainy Day

Blog the Bucket List Journey by Annette

White, has some fantastic weird, wild and

fun ideas to pass the time on the rainy

days, of which we have had many here

in Christchurch! Here are my top ten

favourite ideas.

1. Have an Indoor Picnic

Picnics aren’t just for the outdoors—clear

a space on your living room floor and

recreate a memorable dining experience.

You can even pack a traditional wicker

basket with your favourite picnic foods

and enjoy the feast without going too far.

OPC Law Mystery

Shoppers

2. Have a Spa Day

It’s entirely up to you whether you invest

in a treatment at a high-end spa or create

your own at home. In any case, a self-care

day will leave you feeling completely

revitalized.

3. Write a Thank You Note to Someone

Who Deserves It

So often people want to tell a company

or friend how they feel when they are

not satisfied, instead write a thank you

to show your appreciation for a job well

done.

4. Research your Family Tree

It’s getting easier to find out your roots,

so spark up an interest in genealogy and

start researching your family tree. You

can start your search at My Heritage who

offers a 14-day free trial or Ancestry.com

who gives you a free starter account.

5. Learn to Use Chopsticks

Not very many adults know how to do

this and even fewer kids can comfortably

use chopsticks. Do you want to seem

sophisticated and well-cultured, then

learn how to use chopsticks. You can

impress your friends when you are all out

for sushi.

6. Try to Meditate

Meditation is much more than sitting in

a lotus position chanting “om” over and

over again—it is a way of life. Clearing

your mind through meditation has many

benefits, like lowering blood pressure

and anxiety levels. Plus, it can give you a

brighter outlook on life!

7. Learn a New Language

You can learn a new skill at any age, so

why not learn a new language? It can be

a fun and interactive experience for the

whole family. Perhaps you can learn the

language of a dream destination where

you hope to go on a vacation someday?

Duolingo is a great program to get you

started.

The Office of the Privacy

Commissioner (OPC) has

now begun the process of

using mystery shoppers in the

private rental sector to monitor

property managers and their

activities. The process began in

March 2022, and the OPC are

now checking on how property

management organisations are

operating within the private

sector. Effectively, using

mystery shoppers, the OPC

is checking whether property

managers are asking for the right

information, at the right time, in

line with the privacy principles

defined in the Privacy Act 2020.

While the report I have read

talks specifically on their audit

on property management

companies, it seems likely that

they will also be calling private

landlords who are advertising

their own properties as well.

The OPC has the right – if

landlords or property managers

are found to be in breach of the

Privacy Act – to issue warning

letters, access directions,

compliance notices, referral

to the Human Rights Review

Tribunal, publicly naming

a company, or making

a complaint to the Privacy

Commissioner.

Do you know and understand

what you can and cannot ask a

potential tenant and at what stage

you can ask them? Did you know

you are no longer authorised to

request all the information at

once, it is instead a process with

several steps involved?

If you don’t it is certainly worth

doing the research as the penalty

for failure to comply with a

Compliance Notice is a fine up to

$10,000.
