Squatters, vandals threaten heritage building PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Vandals and squatters are destroying an Opawa heritage building while it sits vacant awaiting earthquake repairs. The Risingholme homestead has suffered smashed windows, graffiti on the inside walls, paint all over carpet and cupboards upended, say its former occupant. The Risingholme Community Centre operated out of the Cholmondeley Ave homestead for more than 70 years before the February 2011 earthquakes damaged the building, causing it to close.


Homestead a ‘sitting duck’ Community centre director Maryke Fordyce (above) said the building is a “sitting duck� for vandalism while it waits for earthquake repairs. “The place is falling apart in front of our eyes,� said Mrs Fordyce. The city council has now boarded up the homestead to try to thwart vandals. Last year, a group of backpackers had been squatting in

the house at the end of last year, and the centre had to call the police, said Mrs Fordyce. She said a burning candle was found in one of the rooms last year. She feared the category two historic place would be burnt to the ground, if repair work did not begin soon. “The last thing I want is for the place to go up in flames before we get back in it.�

Ms Fordyce said repairs needed to start soon to prevent the cost rising due to vandalism. City council community facilities rebuild unit manager Darren Moses said the $1.1m earthquake repairs are expected to begin in January and will take nine months to complete. The repairs will include wall bracing, chimney strengthening and new structuring above the roof line.

The homestead was built in 1864 by William and Mary Reeves. It had several owners until it was given to the city council in 1942 by John McKenzie. The community centre was formed the following year. Mrs Fordyce said she would like to see the building restored to its former glory and wanted more communication from the city council. “We’re a pretty resilient lot, we just need a bit of a hand to get us back up and running again.�

Local intersections among worst for red light runners Five intersections in the southern suburbs have made the top 13 list for the highest number of red light traffic signal runners in the city. Canterbury Transport Operations Centre data, recorded on Wednesday, showed the worst red light running intersection in the city was Aldwins Rd, Buckleys Rd and Linwood Ave with 572 vehicles detected. The intersection of Gloucester St and Linwood Ave was second worst with 493, and the Shakespeare Rd, Wordsworth St and Waltham Rd intersection was recorded as the fifth highest with 397. The Milton and Strickland Sts intersection in Sydenham, also featured with 361, and the Brougham St and Opawa Rd, Opawa, intersection rounded out the top 13 with 276 red light runners. The data does not include those turning right on traffic signal. Last year about 4000 red light runners were recorded on No-

The Aldwins Rd intersection, however, jumped up one place from last year, taking the top spot this year. CTOC manager Ryan Cooney said not only was red light running “getting worse” in the city but it was an “epidemic issue”.

On Wednesday 4960 vehicles were recorded in the top 13. “The locations over the two years have been all over the city showing that it is an epidemic issue,” he said. “The inference from the data is that red light running is an epidemic culture, people are doing it by choice.” Southern View visited the Aldwins Rd intersection on Thursday at about 2.20pm and recorded 17 vehicles running the

Working hard for our community

PATROL VOLUNTEERS Christchurch South Community Watch gained 18 volunteers when it visited Barrington mall last month. Patrol members held information stalls over two days to let people know what the watch does. Patrol treasurer Mike Fenton said they received some good feedback from the public with some issues it could assist with and took down 18 names for future volunteers. “Each of these applicants have to be police checked and we are hoping to have at least 10 new volunteers on patrol in two to three months’ time.” PICNIC TABLE Plans for a picnic table in Somerfield Park have been given the go-ahead by the city council. The Somerfield Residents Association has been planning to build the picnic table since March to sit next to the playground. Fresh Choice Barrington donated $500 and the Rotary Club of Christchurch South pledged $2500 to the project. Cashmere High School and Southern Institute of Technology students will build the table. The city council is also putting $250 towards a community celebration planned for when the table is completed and installed.

Going against school rules becoming trend Bridget Rutherford – Southern View reporter I am all for school students standing up for what they believe in. But what is it with students challenging their schools’ authority? We are hearing more and more about students who are going against the school rules and threatening to take legal action. We’ve seen it across the country. First there was Lucan Battison who refused to cut his long hair when his Hastings school, St John’s College, asked him to because it went against the “off the collar and out of the eyes” rule. The worst part was that he actually won that case. Then a little closer to home, there was the student stubble incident at Hornby High School. The student decided he didn’t want to shave his stubble in spite of the ‘no stubble’ rule he signed up to when he enrolled at the school. He even left the school so he could keep it. And don’t even get me started

SOAP BOX on the Christ’s College car parking debacle. As if those boys needed to add any more fuel to the ‘private school snob’ fire. I should know the stereotype; I went to a private school. When did it become normal to challenge the institution that you are a part of? I went to both a private and public area school, and I never would have challenged the rules at either. The reason for that is simple – those rules were what I signed up to when I was enrolled at the school. There is a difference between standing up for a worthy cause and completely undermining the rules of the institute you are part of. Simple message; cut your hair, shave your face and get back to school.

Readers respond to calls to ban fishing on the pier. Gordon Heyward: Yes, ban the lot. There is a bus which goes to Lyttelton and plenty of good fishing spots over there. Hundreds of people who would go for a walk on the pier keep away from it for fear of being hit by a flying hook Apart from that, it’s the stink. Louise MacDonald: Ban the fishers. I just came back from Scarborough beach in Brisbane, and what a difference there to the shambles in Brighton, I’ve lived in Marine Parade for 43 years, so I know what I’m talking about. If we don’t have the shops or the pools, that we have been promised for the last 40 years, they might just as well shut up Brighton and put the lights out. D Columbus: Fishing off the New Brighton Pier is a right to all that fish the pier. The pier was advertised as a level two pier, one upper level and one lower level. The people of Christchurch were asked to donate money. Families and individuals would then be buying a piece of concrete, steel rail or cobblestone and then their names would be placed onto or around the pier. At the first attempt to close

the pier and ban fishing, a meeting was held at the New Brighton Working Men’s Club. I attended that meeting with many other people opposed this ban. I asked the city council spokesperson at that meeting what happened to the second lower landing that would be for fishing and where did all the donated money for this section go? We were told that the city council at that time took out that money and used it for a building in the city centre, that is why the pier is built the way it is now. Tom Higgs: Please tell me how can some community board ban fishing from somewhere they don’t own? My family owns $10,000 of the pier through our donation. If they ban fishing, we would want our money back, as it’s not being used the way we were led to believe it was going to used by

every one, not just by people walking to look. Walter Roy: I fully support the fishing ban on the pier.

The 16-year-old fell hard on the back of his head when he was trying to perform a trick. The teenager’s friends saw the fall and put him into the recovery position before calling an ambulance. He was discharged from hospital on Monday afternoon.

EXCITING: An artist’s impression of the Coronation Corner development. Below: The old shops before they were demolished.

New look for Selwyn St BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

This is what (above) Coronation Corner on Selwyn St, will look like in the future. Lee Pee Ltd was granted a resource consent in 2013 to develop the site on the corner of Selywn and Coronation Sts into a retail and office complex to be called Coronation Corner. It is now going through the building consent process and Valour Properties are looking for tenants to fill the development. Its plans show there will be about 15 individual spaces in

the complex ranging from 83350 sq m in floor size. There will be 42 on site shared car parks in the development. The original Selwyn St shops suffered considerable damage in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and about 60 per cent of the

buildings were lost or unusable. A master plan for the new shops was signed off in July 2012 with the aim of rejuvenating the area. Coronation Corner is one of three post-earthquake developments on Selwyn St. A new retail building on the eastern side of the street has already gone in with occupational health service Oh Well! and Pies & Coffee cafe both already in there. Plans for the neighbouring empty property on the eastern side of the road are yet to be determined.

City council urban design and regeneration unit manager Carolyn Ingles said discussions with the land owner on development options for the third smaller site were ongoing. She said it was for the private developer of each site to determine when it will be completed, and how much it would cost. Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board chairman Paul McMahon said Selwyn St is a prime location with a lot of foot traffic. He said the Coronation Corner plans showed it would be a beautiful development.

LIBRARY CLOSURE The Halswell Library, on Halswell Rd, will close next month so its equipment and books can be transferred into the new Te Hapua: Halswell Centre, which is set to open on November 28. The Riccarton-Wigram Community Board is looking for possible uses of the Halswell Rd building, and asking community groups to get in contact with the board if they have any ideas. Those with ideas can get in touch with ARTISTS, DESIGNERS WANTED First Thursdays is planning its next event, Concrete Jungle, in Sydenham and is looking for expressions of interest from artists and designers to create art on skate decks to be showcased. The skate decks are being sponsored by Embassy and will feature in the pop-up exhibition in December. Artists and designers have until September 25 to express their interest.

Catherine Ryan


Providing cricketing opportunities Catherine Ryan has been working to rebuild the junior section of the Southern Districts Cricket Club for the past three years. She spoke to Bridget Rutherford about cricket, shoulder surgery and seeing the kids pick up the sport So your role at the club is building up the junior club, can you tell me about that? I’m the secretary of the club and I started about five or six years ago. I started working on building the junior section about two seasons ago. We had eight children, and in the 2014/15 season we had about 68 children registered. Why did the club not have junior teams? Just with the members there, there was no one to run it. Why did you decide to get it back up and running? Well I’ve always enjoyed cricket and it just kind of evolved. I came in and saw there was a need for it. It started with having to get cricket gear for juniors, so we had to do a lot of fundraising. And we had to get qualified for coaching. The hardest thing was that a lot of children that wanted to play

cricket are already playing for a different club so we have started with a lot of young five and six-year-olds who were new to the sport, so the competition was pretty tough. Can you tell me a bit about the juniors ‘Have a Go’ sessions? Well Have a Go has changed so it’s now called the Superstar Academy and it is for beginners every Friday at Beckenham Park. Technically it is meant to be for five to eight-year-olds but all the kids can come down from all ages. We have skill stations so they learn to catch, throw and bat. Then at the end we have games and it’s a bit more laid back. And we’ve also got the bar so the parents can come and sit at the bar and have beer and watch. They love it. And it’s quite unique because it is free isn’t it? Yes it is. It’s good because if

DETERMINED: Catherine Ryan’s goal is to get more children playing for the Southern Districts Cricket Club. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

the kids are not sure if they want to play they can come along and there is no pressure for parents to have to pay fees and the child not want to play anymore. And that must be helpful for families who might not have spare money to pay for cricket. Definitely, so when I was doing school classes often the kids would say they couldn’t afford to play. It’s really sad how many children are aware of their

parents’ finances. So we wanted to do the free classes for some of these kids to be able to play cricket. Did you play cricket yourself? I did, I played for 15 years until I had shoulder surgery, and that’s when I took up coaching. Ouch, what did you do to your shoulder? I tore the ligaments and tendons from playing cricket. I

could play again but my shoulder isn’t very strong and now that I’ve got kids I don’t really have time. Who did you play for? I played for Canterbury Country, I used to live out in Lincoln and went to Lincoln High School so I played for them right up until under-17. I also played for Lancaster Park Woolston Cricket Club premier women’s team. I was a spin bowler, I didn’t really bat much.

for kids a passion

IN ACTION: Catherine Ryan took up coaching after she injured her shoulder badly while playing cricket.

What is the most rewarding thing about coaching? I like watching the kids get it, if that makes sense. I love being able to start from them not being able to catch a ball, to a few months later when they are bowling. What is a funny experience from coaching? Probably coaching my own daughter, she is only five. I was out coaching and she said ‘hey mum look at this’ and all the

other kids started calling me mum as well, and then realised they said it. It’s pretty funny. Do you just have the one daughter? I’ve got two daughters. My little one is two and a half, and as much as she would love to be out playing cricket she just watches. Her name is Caydee and my older daughter is called Marlee. Any funny habits they have? Marlee is quite funny because


she’s got a lot of allergies and she tells everyone about them. So if someone goes up to her and asks how she is, she will say “I’m okay but I’m allergic to dogs”. They are very talkative and chat to all the adult playing members. Do the girls spend a lot of time at the club? Well my partner is our groundsman so we do spend a lot of time at the club. They have been at the club since being born. So did you and your partner meet at the club? Yes, he was in the senior team when I came. We’ve been together for about three years. So sounds like you are very busy, what do you do with your spare time? I’m also at university doing a sport coaching degree so a lot of what I’m doing is either studying or coaching. Before coaching and studying I was an electronic engineer. I also run Southern Districts Football Club in the winter. I’m the secretary and administrator, much the same as I do for cricket. Other than that it is family time like going to church on Sunday’s and visiting grandparents.

Principal’s efforts for pupils earns community hero award RECOGNITION: Waltham Primary School principal Gordon Caddie has been recognised as The Warehouse’s Canterbury 2015 community hero for the work he does.


LOCAL Achievers

Gordon Caddie is the principal of one of the lowest decile schools in the city, but he doesn’t want the children to carry that label. Since the earthquakes Waltham Primary School has doubled in size, drawing from low decile areas. Mr Caddie has worked hard to make sure the pupils have everything they need to succeed, including school uniforms. Now, he has been recognised for his work. He was presented with The Warehouse’s Canterbury 2015 Community Hero award at the school assembly on Friday. He was one of nine regional recipients of the award throughout the country, which is an annual acknowledgement

If you know of a local achiever, email bridget. rutherford@

by the company of outstanding contributions to the community. He did not know he would be receiving it, and five representatives from the South City branch went and surprised him in front of the whole school. Since the earthquakes, Mr Caddie has set up a very active parent group at the school which has started hot lunches, holiday activities and education classes. Because a number of parents cannot afford to send their

children on school trips, he organises fundraisers so children do not miss out. He also set up a programme to train parents to help them support their children and their learning needs. He was presented with a $500 gift card for The Warehouse, for the school. Recipients are selected from community groups that are part of The Warehouse’s Bags for Good programme, which aims at cutting back plastic

bag waste. The programme involves proceeds from sales of 10 cent plastic bags sold at checkouts, being donated to community organisations in each store’s neighbourhood. The Warehouse Canterbury regional manager Derek Cotton said it was one of the toughest decisions to make each year. “Gordon stood out and, on behalf of our community, may I extend our thanks for all their efforts.”

CUTE: Hannah Hegarty, Leilani Matai, Eliana Rae and Maisie Cooper enjoy a stress-free day with their miniature buddy.

STRESS-FREE: Sophie Williams, Megan Calder and Vanessa Tregoning enjoy a day to take it easy.

Laid-back day for Marian girls The fast pace of the school year has inspired Marian College students to have a day to take it easy. Marian’s sister school, St Joseph’s Catholic College in East Gosford, New South Wales, gave money to the school, to help out in the

aftermath of the February 2011 earthquake. Marian students were allowed to choose how to use the money, and came up with a ‘stress-free day’. It was held on September 11 and there were fun activities including oversized games of

Twister, fort building and a zoo of animals to pet. Year 13 student Kasia Stanicich said the student executive talked to the girls about the idea and everyone was really excited. “The reaction from the girls when the animals arrived was awesome,” she said.

Thorrington twins top up City Mission foodbank

Two Thorrington School pupils have collected more than 730 cans for the City Mission foodbank as part of a school leadership programme. Identical twins Jack and Archie MacDonald, 10, encouraged families from the school to contribute to the week-long appeal, putting City Mission bags in each classroom for donations. The pair collected the items at the end of the week, creating a giant heart and cross, which is the City Mission logo, in the school hall. “We had hoped to get around 500 cans so getting over the 700-mark was really quite something,” Jack said. “It took most of the morning to gather it all up.” The boys said they were inspired to do something for the City Mission to achieve their

gold community service badge after seeing a newspaper story about two boys who donated to the foodbank instead of accepting birthday gifts. “Those boys were so kind to give up the chance of new toys. We thought that was an awesome thing to do,” Archie said. The boys delivered the items to the City Mission last week. “We are actually too young to be official volunteers for the foodbank – but we are going to take the items into the team in the sorting area.” Thorrington School’s leadership programme for year 6 pupils encourages children to contribute to their school to gain a silver badge. Pupils wanting to achieve a Gold badge need to contribute six hours of time to an organisation or project to achieve the award.

Banjo a hit with young readers Kip McGrath Barrington got a new furry and friendly member to help children learn to read. Banjo, the mini maltese and chihuahua cross, has been helping out with the centre’s Love to Read classes and has been a hit with the children. His mission is to charm and entertain the sometimes reluctant readers, and encourage them to take part. The children were even allowed to choose the fourmonth-old puppy’s name, with each getting to submit their favourites. Sandi Probert, who set up the Love to Read programme, chose Banjo out of the submitted options. She said children coming to

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD BUDDIES: Banjo helps Lexi (left) with her reading at Kip McGrath Barrington’s Love to Read programme. Shea chose the name Banjo as part of a competition.

Love to Read are taught using the ‘synthetic phonic’ method of instruction. This first teaches the children the letter sounds, then builds up to blending these sounds together to achieve full pronunciation of whole words. This way of teaching children

to read has proved to be successful that as from September 2010, it became the mandatory vehicle for teaching early reading in all state schools in the United Kingdom, she said. “The addition of Banjo to the team has made coming to Love to Read a fun experience.”

The old and the young came together in Beckenham last week as part of a new Age Concern initiative. St Peter’s School had a visit from some members of the older generation as part of the initiative to combat loneliness among the elderly. Age Concern Canterbury chief executive Simon Templeton said social isolation was a huge issue for older people. He said making a intergenerational connection helped to reduce It is for the elderly “who are feeling a bit lonely”. The programme has been

running for the past three months with St Peter’s School being the latest of five schools taking part. He said so far it had been “awesome” and very well received by the elderly and school pupils. “The feedback we’ve got is that they absolutely love it.” Age Concern already takes mini-vans of older people on outings to museums, libraries and cafes and the new school visits added to that. He said more visits were planned. “It’s something that fits in well with what we do,” he said.

New management, fresh décor at

Beckenham eatery Situated in the heart of the Beckenham shopping area, Nando’s restaurant was established on the corner of Colombo and Somerfield streets almost 10 years ago – an ideal spot for local residents to enjoy the unique Nando’s experience.


ow under new management, the restaurant has been completely renovated, creating a more inviting environment to dine in. The main draw card for Nando’s customers, however, is the restaurant’s famous Portuguese flame-grilled, butterflycut chicken, which is marinated for 24 hours before being basted and cooked in Nando’s special Peri-Peri sauce. Lean, tender and

tasty, the chicken is a mouth-watering treat, with flavour right through to the bone. Nando’s began life in 1987 as a simple Portuguese eatery in Rosettenville, South Africa, where its founder Fernando Duarte took his inspiration from the traditional sauce made from the Peri-Peri or African bird’s eye chilli. Now an international brand, Nando’s menu includes a wide selection of burger, pita and

Awareness Week, a good time to reflect on

hearing ability

Carolyn Gordon & Carolyn Till

This week is International Deaf Awareness Week – a time to raise awareness and appreciate the issues the deaf community face in their day-to-day lives.


he National Foundation for the Deaf (NFD) advises this year’s theme is “captioning for all”. (Did you know that the All Blacks games at the Rugby World Cup are not being captioned?) It is also a good time to reflect on our own

hearing. Hearing is a treasure – it is a vital part of how we communicate with others (an essential part of life). You may not be aware that your hearing has deteriorated. In fact, hearing loss can occur at any age, with one in 10 New Zealanders being affected by it, making communication with others

more difficult. Any of these three situations could indicate hearing loss: 1. It’s hard to follow conversations when two or more people are talking; 2. People seem to mumble these days; 3. The volume of the TV is louder than others prefer. Carolyn Till of Gordon & Till Audiology points out that it’s often family members who first notice someone is having difficulty hearing clearly. “They notice their loved ones are not participating in family activities as they used to, and they also find they often have to repeat things.” She and fellow audiologist Carolyn Gordon advise that it is important for anyone with hearing issues to take steps as soon as possible to address the situation. “Coming to us for an initial consultation enables us to find out what communication issues you are facing,” says Carolyn Till. “If a hearing problem is found and hearing

aids are indicated, as an independent, owner-operated clinic, we can choose from a wide range of hearing aids to best suit your needs and your budget. In most cases, government subsidies or other funding help is available.” Being able to hear properly has a huge impact on quality of life, enabling people to participate fully in social activities and family life, the audiologists say. “Seeing the positive change in people when they come back to the clinic after having hearing aids fitted is why we do what we do,” Carolyn Gordon says. As hearing declines with age, an annual hearing check from the age of 50 is recommended. Gordon & Till Audiology offers free hearing screens for anyone who is unsure about their hearing. Gordon & Till Audiology is located at 701 Barbadoes Street, St Albans, with plenty of off-street parking. They also have visiting clinics at Leeston and Halswell.

Are you one of the 70 per cent with EXCESS CANDIDA? Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms?


eart burn, indigestion, feeling tired often, low energy, gas, bloating, irregular bowels, constipation or diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, frequent urination, thrush, oral thrush (whitecoated tongue), sore throat, fungal skin infections and rashes, jock itch, ring worm, vaginal or anal itching, athlete’s foot, ear ache, dry mouth, bad breath, anxiety, feeling down, depression, panic attacks, irritability, dizziness, brain fog, poor concentration, feeling spacey, poor memory, dandruff, dry and itchy skin, psoriasis, burning or tearing eyes, eye fatigue, headaches, sinusitis, nasal drip, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, urinary tract infection, often unwell and chronic disease are just some of the common symptoms. A causative factor for all these symptoms and more can be a yeast organism called candida albicans. It is often underestimated what a profound effect it can have on our health and wellbeing. It is estimated around 70 per cent of people have a candida overgrowth in their intestine, mouth or on their skin. It is normal and beneficial to have some candida in the gut where it is normally kept under control by the good gut bacteria or probiotics that feed on this yeast. However, using antibiotics without probiotic supplementation, sickness, poor diet, insufficient stomach acid and medications are some of the common factors that can upset this delicate balance and allow the candida to thrive. The tentacles of candida can penetrate the intestinal wall over time, causing inflammation and leaky gut syndrome where toxins and only partly digested proteins can enter the bloodstream, often leading to food intolerance, poor health, allergies and susceptibility to asthma. The immune system becomes weak, and colds, influenza and chronic infections occur often. The candida yeast often enters the blood stream as a fungus. In the bloodstream, it travels around the body to places where the environment is suitable for it to inhabit. Symptoms will vary depending on its location in the body. If it enters the brain, it can cause depression, anxiety and foggy thinking. Some researchers believe the candida fungus can release a pleomorphic microorganism or virus with a form that changes depending on its environment. This is believed to be a factor in cancer and other chronic health conditions. However, it is the body’s weakened immune system

and toxic environment that is the real cause of disease. Candida imbalances in the gut can be reversed fairly easily with correct nutritional supplementation and care with diet and lifestyle. To cleanse candida fungus and its resultant toxins from the body will require a bit more effort and may take some months. However, when this is achieved, a great burden will have been removed from your body, resulting in more optimal health. The natural health advisers at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy can provide you with a detailed nutritional protocol to cleanse the excess candida and its fungus from the body, and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Methyl B-12

merging research has shown as many as 50 per cent of older adults and as many as 25 per cent of younger adults are deficient in vitamin B12. B12 is essential for energy production, cell health, regulation of mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair, and prevention of homocysteine, a serious cardiovascular risk factor that is known to cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels. It can also increase the chances of a stroke. Harvard researchers found a 34 per cent decrease risk of vision loss in a study of participants aged 40-plus supplemented with B12. Another study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in subjects in their 60s who were low in B12. The reason so many people lack B12 seems to be due to our body’s inability to absorb it as we age, as the digestive system becomes less efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good news is B12 in the form of

methylcobalamin sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels in the body.

Not all first aid certificates

are created equal While first aid courses must achieve prescribed New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) standards to be certified, not all training providers deliver the same course.


here can be big differences in first aid courses between a range of training providers. Some courses range from teaching only the basic NZQA specified content and nothing else, to providing detailed and comprehensive content designed to familiarise participants to a wide range of likely emergencies. Providers offering shortened courses or courses not meeting NZQA training requirements are now in the spotlight. NZQA and the Department of Labour have published a factsheet to outline requirements for providers, learners and employers for first aid training based on currently registered NZQA unit standards. Below are a summary of what we think you should know. Course differences Training providers can market their courses under a wide range of names such as Essential First Aid, Workplace First Aid or Comprehensive First Aid and many other eye-catching titles. The term workplace can vary from a small office to a large factory where the risks and potential injuries are just as wide. Employers should be cautious in thinking that a one-day workplace first aid course will meet their needs in industries such as construction, engineering, forestry and industrial. More advanced learning is important to meet the proper workplace assessments and meet health and safety obligations. The content of courses can also vary. Employers should check to see the first aid course

is relevant to their particular industry risks. If there are risks of falling, or medium to high injury, then take careful look in the shortened courses as these subjects may not be covered. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that employees attend courses appropriate to their industry risks. Unit standard-based first aid training These are the minimum requirements for both the initial and refresher training. The minimum duration of first aid training and assessment will be for training based on: • Unit standards 6400, 6401 (or 26552) and 6402 (or 26551), a minimum of 12 hours’ training and assessment • Unit standards 6401 (or 26551) and 6402 (or 26552), a minimum of eight hours’ training and assessment • For refresher training, where the learner’s certificate is no older than two years and three months from date of issue, a minimum of six hours’ training and assessment. First aid training must cover the outcomes of the NZQA first aid unit standards being assessed and any additional modules identified by the employer through the workplace risk assessment process as outlined in Department of Labour guidelines. Only first aid training providers accredited by NZQA can award the credits and issue a first aid certificate. Care needs to be taken to ensure that the provider is actually registered with NZQA for this purpose. NZQA conduct regular External Evaluative Reviews on all training providers. New Zealand Red Cross is proud to hold a double Highly Confident accreditation in both Educational Performance and Capability in Self-Assessment. This means that NZ Red Cross is a Category One training provider. First aid refresher training Refresher training is required every two years to maintain the certificates. This is a requirement and not something for the provider to decide. The requirement allows for a three-month period of grace, so the cut off period is two years and three months which should allow sufficient time to enrol onto a suitable course. The refresher training should ensure

the certificate holder is current in first aid practice appropriate to their individual workplace requirements. If a certificate is not renewed for more than three calendar months from the second anniversary date of issue, it will be necessary for the certificate holder to complete full first aid training to maintain currency. For the purposes of workplace first aid emergency management, employers will need to ensure that their first aid personnel maintain competency at all times.

Return of the Annual Classic Car Show and Concours d’Elegance


his year marks the return of the Annual Classic Car Show and Concours d’Elegance after an absence of three years, following the Christchurch earthquakes. Pre-2010, every year without fail and regardless of the theme, spectators were guaranteed the chance to get up close and personal with more than 70 special classic and vintage vehicles as they were shown off in all their waxed and buffed glory, and this year the show will be no different. Key to the event is the proximity families and individual spectators can get to some of the most unique vehicles in New Zealand, and the fact that the cars’ owners are on hand to answer questions about the pedigree, history and specification of their charges. As well as individual exhibitors, the Classic Car Show also attracts car clubs from around the South Island as a mainstay of the vintage vehicle calendar. Most of the participating clubs will be organising their displays around a given theme, with many interesting variations expected. All of them will feature their club cars as centrepieces before filling their display areas with all sorts of props and memorabilia to catch the eyes of the judges, who will be spending the weekend comparing displays. The judges themselves are made up of a mixture of club personnel and members of the public, with the winning club receiving a large trophy and other prizes for their showmanship and attention to detail. Many cars will showcase their special pedigree while others grab attention simply for their uniqueness and rarity, but each and every one of them will be a testament to the dedication and sheer passion of their owners who will have made every effort to display them in pristine condition.

The Classic Car Show organising committee say that each year, the show keeps getting better as New Zealand’s premier indoor event of this type. There are other classic car shows in New Zealand, but this is the biggest indoor show devoted entirely to classic, vintage and rare cars in the country. It really provides people with the chance to see the very best of the South Island’s classic cars in all their glory. As usual, the show will feature a great variety of classic cars from across the world, with American, European and British vehicles rubbing shoulders under one roof at Pioneer Stadium. While seeing an Aladdin’s Cave of classic cars all on display side-by-side is considered a sight to remember by all car enthusiasts, the Canterbury Intermarque Concours d’Elegance, which takes place at every Classic Car Show, is always a particular highlight. Cars of all years and makes are eligible to participate in the competition which was first organised by the MG Car Club over 30 years ago. The event rewards enthusiasts who follow a very strict criteria of detailing, cleanliness, condition and originality, with different awards up for grabs in a diverse range of categories. Of the 80 or so vehicles which attend the show every year, around 25 enter the intense competition to be judged according to their year of manufacture, originality and condition. Prizes will be awarded at 7pm on Saturday night of the show, and the public is invited to remain for the presentations. None of this would be possible without the support of sponsors, and the organisers acknowledge the support of local car restoration firm Upper Classics, who will have their own special display at the show.

The show, held indoors at Pioneer Recreation and Sports Centre, Lyttelton Street, Spreydon, is open to the public on Saturday, September 26, from 9am to 7.30pm, and on Sunday, September 27, from 9am to 4pm. Admission $10 for adults and $2 for children.

Big engine power for Toyota Aurion SPECIFICATIONS

Whereas Toyota has just launched a new generation Camry, its stablemate, the bigengined Aurion, which shares much the same ideology, doesn’t take on such a dramatic change. However, it has had a facelift which will see it through to the end of Australian manufacture in 2017. And the reality is, there was little in the old Aurion that needed refreshing, it has been a solid performer for Toyota, it’s large car feel and spaciousness has been a lure for those who like six-cylinder engines and aren’t prepared to compromise on performance. In terms of change, the Aurion gets a new grille and bumper, while Sportivo models have garnish changes to enhance a sporty look such as big black wheels. Inside, there’s a lot of extra detail, minor fitment features such as upgraded gauges, rear window blind, audio upgrades, Bluetooth streaming and upgraded trim detailing. The Aurion lands here in

SPORTY: Toyota’s Aurion Sportivo performs as well as it looks.

three variations, the entry-level model sits at $50,990, while a Sportivo SX6 and ZR6 are priced at $52,490 and $54,990 respectively. The evaluation car was the mid-range model, and it performs as well as it looks. Other than those changes I’ve just mentioned, the concept of Aurion hasn’t altered. It shares its 3.5-litre engine with a lot of other Toyota and Lexus product and, what’s more, it is a strong engine with high power outputs – 200kW and 336Nm, it is also managed so that efficiency isn’t overly compromised. But given its capacity and strength, it does like to work hard and freely, it will surge under acceleration providing a quick standstill to 100km/h time of 7.1sec.

Response to throttle request is sharp and instant, the power flows evenly through a six-speed automatic gearbox, the only transmission in the two-variant range. The gearbox has a manual shift function at the main gearshift lever itself and through steering wheel-mounted paddles, but such is the strength of the engine and the management process which encourages early shifts so that fuel usage isn’t wasted, I mostly let the transmission change according to its own shift patterns. Toyota claims a 9.3-litre per 100km/h (30mpg) combined cycle average which correlates well with my time with the test car at 10/100km (28mpg).


At open road speed the Aurion cruises quietly, it glides through the air with just a slight hum off the Bridgestone Turanza tyres (225/45 x18in), only on coarse chip seal. It is a happy highway traveller, dispensing the kilometres with ease, and affording the occupants a comfortable, moderately firmed ride. The spring and damper rates have been well engineered so that the Aurion will absorb uneven surfaces without jolting the cabin proper. The suspension will also keep the platform and body structure even when tackling the inevitable twists and turns. Major items of equipment include dual zone climate control, comprehensive trip computer,

Price: Toyota Aurion Sportivo SX6, $52,490. Dimensions: Length,4855mm; width, 1825mm; height, 1470mm. Configuration: V6 transverse, front-wheel-drive, 3456cc, 200kW, 336Nm, six-speed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 7.1sec.

keyless entry and ignition, and premium audio with iPod/USB connectivity. For safety there is traction and stability control, complex air bag network, reversing camera, blind spot monitoring and ISOFIX child seat tethers. Just like the Camry, the Aurion provides a pleasing driving experience and a level of comfort that rivals models with far greater pedigree. Every time I think that we might lose great cars like the Aurion when the Australian manufacturing industry shuts down, I can’t help but feel we are losing something traditionally Australasian. Although large car sales have dwindled in recent years thanks to the popularity of sport utility vehicles, it’s been cars like the Aurion and other Aussie sedans that have paved the way for our desire of big cars and their big engines.
