Parking restriction plans Use of Port Hills track may become more difficult BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

NARROW: The city council is looking into whether more parking restrictions could be installed on Rapaki Rd to widen the road and make it safer. PHOTO: FRASER WALKER-PEARCE


Using a popular Port Hills track could soon be more difficult after plans to restrict some parking to residents only. Rapaki Track is popular, especially in the weekends, with the city’s walkers, runners and cyclists who park on Rapaki Rd. But resident Mike Smith said this makes the street narrow and dangerous. The Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board has asked the city council to look into whether some parks on Rapaki Rd could be turned into residents only. The request comes after Mr Smith told the community board last week residents were concerned with the narrow width of the road, and cars parking on the yellow lines. The community board has requested a city council report looking at whether the resident-only parks could be installed, as well as painted lines marking individual parks. But deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter voted against the report. She said if more parking restrictions were installed it would drive people to park on nearby smaller streets. “You’re shifting it to other accessto-the-hill streets like Vernon Tce,”

she said. “Where do you want them to go?” A number of Rapaki Rd residents already had their own off-street parking, which meant extra on-road resident parking was unnecessary, she said. No parking restrictions which run from Erewhon Tce for 64m on the eastern side of the road were installed earlier this year. However, residents say people have been ignoring the yellow lines and parking there anyway. Spokes Canterbury chairman Don Babe said he thought there would be issues there. “I feel for some of the homeowners, people are imposing a little bit.” He said there were alternate transport options for people wanting to use the track, including taking the bus or cycling. For cyclists it was not a big deal if they had to park about 500m away from the bottom of the track, he said. “It’s actually quite a good warm up.” Chairman Paul McMahon said the board has asked for the report to determine the best way forward. The community board also asked city council staff whether more enforcement of the current parking restrictions could be done.

Volunteer recognised for services to library BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Nearly a year after the Hoon Hay Children’s Library closed its doors, one of its long-standing volunteers has been recognised. Lorna Holland was presented with a Community Service Award on Wednesday in recognition of her 49 years of voluntary service to the library. She was named a recipient in July, but was unable to attend the ceremony to receive her certificate, so the ceremony was brought to her. Family members, fellow library volunteers and SpreydonHeathcote Community Board members gathered at Mrs Holland’s home at Addington Lifestyle Care. Mrs Holland volunteered at the library from the day it opened in 1966, to the day it closed in December 2014, a feat only fellow volunteer, Merle Lepper, managed. June Hulme volunteered at the library for 47 years. All together the trio contributed 145 years of service.

GENEROUS: June Hulme, Lorna Holland and Merle Lepper made up 145 years in service to the Hoon Hay Children’s Library.

Mrs Lepper and Mrs Hulme were also presented with Community Service Awards for their contribution to the children’s library, and received theirs in July. Over the years the three helped children of the Hoon Hay community access books for entertainment and education. Community board deputy chairwoman Karolin Potter officially presented Mrs Holland with her certificate, which was followed by a morning tea.


Ms Potter said it was great to be able to celebrate Mrs Holland’s service, alongside two fellow long-standing volunteers. “These women had just worked so hard for so long.” In the library’s first year of operation 46,000 books were issued. By the late 1960s, it had 1700 members and 30 volunteers. Its membership began to decline after the city council-run Spreydon Library opened in 1971. The earthquakes further im-

BUSH ON FIRE Woolston firefighters were called to Linwood Park early Thursday morning to a toi toi bush which was on fire. The call-out came at about 3.30am and fire crews were there for 33min. Fire communications shift manager Riwai Grace said the fire was being treated as suspicious. Christchurch Central fire crews were called to a business on Wordsworth St, Sydenham, at 7.41am the same day due to reports of a gas smell in the building. It turned out the smell was not coming from the inside of the building and was a false alarm.

DONATION FOR BRAIN RESEARCH The Rotary Club of Christchurch South has made a donation of more than $3000 to the New Zealand Brain Research Institute. The donation will go towards a new defibrillator for the institute. Athol McCully presented the $3445 cheque to the institute’s fundraising manager, Caroline Wagteveld McKenzie, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Christchurch South on October 28. The club, assisted by the Rotary Club of New Horizons, based in Lincoln, raised the money through the sale of chicken manure in August and September.

pacted the children’s library with a reduction in issues and volunteers. The committee regrettably made the decision to close the children’s library in December 2014. Next month would have marked the children’s library’s 50th birthday had it not been closed. However, the building could soon be utilised in another way, as the Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board pushes for it to be reopened for community use.

FIREWORKS CAUSE FIRE Fire crews were called to two different fires on the Port Hills last Monday as a result of fireworks. Fireworks sales began last Monday. The first a 30m gorse fire on the Summit Rd at about 9.30. Fifteen minutes later crews were called to Dyers Pass Rd to a 40m by 20m grass fire.

Veterinary practice

Split Pad Disease In 25 years of being a veterinarian, I had never come across Split Pad Disease before. A wicked cruel disease that I came to learn more about, thanks to my gorgeous Lola. If it wasn’t bad enough that she ended up with kidney cancer, she also has a non curable immune mediated pad disease affecting at different times all her feet. As a young pup she often presented intermittently lame. On inspection of her pads I would find craterous, erosive lesions affecting large chunks of her pads, often infected. They’d start as a split that opens up and swells and Lola just wanted to lick it as it was sore. I needed to place an elizabethan collar on her to stop her doing this. Lola would be severely lame, in pain and miserable. If more than one foot was affected she couldn’t weight bear at all. She learnt to walk using only 2 legs!! I agonised for her as I couldn’t help her. Pain relief never really seemed to help and it was just a matter of time for her pad epithelium to regrow. I struggled on for months hoping this disease would just disappear. I would cleanse her pads, dress them to keep them protected and clean and often place special leather boots on her when we went walking. I tried all sorts of antibiotics, anti inflammatories, probiotics, booties, creams, prescription diets and emolients and nothing hastened the repair process. I decided to biopsy her pads under a general anaesthetic to get a definite diagnosis. Unfortunately it confirmed Split pad disease.

Split pad disease is a highly characteristic syndrome of unknown etiology that is very rare in the dog.

It’s up to us to build the city we want Hillmorton High School year 13 student James Adams

the paw pads. Adjacent haired skin is not affected and the lesions are greatly aggravated by self trauma. Pain or itchiness may result in self trauma due to the dog chewing at the affected feet. Dogs can have variable lameness during episodes of splitting and peeling and some animals may have repeated episodes. Affected animals are otherwise healthy. Initially only one pawpad may be affected, followed by development of additional similar lesions in other pads. Usually all pawpads are eventually involved. Spending considerable time on concrete doesn’t help and unfortunately our entire section has a lot of conctrete and tarseal! The heat from the concrete on the pads is a contributing factor. Keeping Lola off this is impossible. Interestingly since starting her chemotherapy 3 months ago, her pads have been great. Although I do attribute some of that to the special prescription diet Lola eats packed with the Omegas, glucosamine and a hydrolysed protein. We have swapped one evil for another but hopefully my girl has beaten cancer. I will keep you updated on her progress. Recently she was radiographed and a needle was found in her abdomen!! Probably ingested from the garbage. So the next chapter in Lolas health diary will be an abdominal ultrasound to see WHERE the needle is and IF it needs to be surgically removed. She’s lucky to be owned and loved by not 1 but 2 vets!! Dr Michele McMaster

For five years, we’ve been promised a ‘vibrant’ city centre, and now parts of that grand scheme are actually being opened. So, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on that original dream – how relevant, or even, intelligent, was it? All the ‘artistic impressions’ of our future city show lots of healthy, European, goodlooking people going about their daily business in the glorious sunshine. Everyone seems to be 35 or younger, on a professional salary and content to sip lattes and mill around for no apparent reason. Poverty, illness, grey skies – they’ve all been waved away! We seem to have survived the last five years, so let’s not get caught up in some great swell of pointless optimism over the central city. After all, it’s our own communities that matter more.

It’s also our own communities that have received the least investment and attention (although, maybe we should be grateful for this). There’s been hundreds of central city strategies, plans and projects, but no-one in the halls of power has sat down and thought how to best support the suburbs. So it’s up to us. It’s amazing what even a few people can do with a tin of paint and a willing attitude, or the difference that a few people can make by shopping local stores rather than the mall. Schools are always on the look-out for willing coaches, community theatre groups are waiting to be started, and even a bit of mowing can transform a scruffy verge. These are the things that matter more than convention centres or office towers. But there’s no point voicing your opinions. However loud you are, they can’t hear you up there in their comfortable offices. Let’s leave them there. Let’s focus on what is important and take action in our own community. This is how we will build the city we want.

Flood plan decision soon Woolston residents living near Bells Creek will know on Thursday whether a $9 million scheme to reduce flooding near their homes will proceed. The city council will be asked whether to proceed with stage one of the Bells Creek flooding remediation project. The remediation option for Bells Creek hopes to return the area back to its pre-earthquake level of flood risk. It is expected to reduce the frequency and severity of flooding in a 50-year rainfall event and benefit at least 31 properties that are at risk of above floor flooding, and a further 88 properties experiencing reduced flood levels. The city council’s Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee recommended the city council progress to the detailed design stage at its meeting last Thursday. The proposed stage one work would include a new pump station on Ferry Rd near the Heathcote River and minor re-grading of a short length of Richardson Tce. A new detention pond would be installed within the northern half of Edmonds Park where the sports fields are. This would be dual-use, so it would be used in only large rain-

PREVENTION: The Bells Creek flooding remediation project will aim to prevent flooding such as this on Richardson Tce last year. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN fall events, while it would still be used as sports fields the remainder of the time. A new detention pond is also proposed to go on Linwood College’s lower fields and pipes in the Mackworth St area would also be upgraded. Further investigations are underway to identify options for reducing flood risk in the Moorhouse Ave, Ferry Rd, Mackenzie Ave and Tabart St areas, which would be stage two. Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee chairman Phil Clearwater said the re-

mediation would improve the capacity of the stormwater drainage network. “This means we can mitigate against homes in these areas flooding by adding or upgrading infrastructure such as pump stations and detention basins. We can also enhance these schemes in future.” If the city council decides to progress with the scheme, the detailed design of it would be looked at. That would include surveying floor levels, validating modelling and talking to residents.

SOCIAL HOUSES STARTED The first sod has been turned on the site of eight new social houses in Waltham. The city council held a ground-breaking ceremony on Thursday to mark the start of construction on the Osborne St site. Four earthquake-damaged units were demolished earlier this year to make way for the new one and two-bedroom units. CONSENT APPROVED Resource consent to carry out repairs on Cracroft’s Old Stone House has been approved. Expressions of interest for companies to do the repairs have been completed and successful companies have been short-listed. The heritage building has been closed to the public since the earthquakes. It needs strengthening and repair work done to bring it back up to standard. The work is expected to be completed by June. DESIGN FOR WATER STATION Preliminary designs for the repair of the Addington Water Station, Tower Junction, have begun. City council staff said in a report that consultants are working on a design. Once ready it will need resource consent approval. The heritage item has been fenced off since the earthquakes to protect it against further damage. It has earthquake

related cracking and the cast concrete structure is displaced, which needs to be repaired. LIQUOR BAN If you are heading to the races on Friday and Saturday as part of NZ Cup and Show Week make sure you are not consuming alcohol around the nearby streets. The city council is reminding people there is an alcohol ban in place for both Addington Raceway and Riccarton Park Racecourse. The ban around Addington Raceway from 9am10pm on November 10 affects the area bounded by Blenheim Rd, Moorhouse Ave, Lincoln Rd, Wrights Rd and Matipo St. The affected streets around Riccarton Park Racecourse include the area bounded by both sides of Yaldhurst Rd to Middlepark Rd, Epsom Rd to Racecourse Rd, Buchanans Rd to Masham Rd and Masham Rd to Yaldhurst Rd. The ban is from 7am to midnight on Saturday, November 14. REPAIRS TO EASTERN TCE Eastern Tce will be closed from today for about six weeks while road repairs are carried out. The closure will be in place between number 223 and Beckenham Park. A detour will be in place via Fisher Ave, Norwood St and Sandwich Rd. Access for builders and residents will be maintained.

Te Puawai Wilson-Leahy

Youth MP Te Puawai’s passion Cashmere High School student Te Puawai Wilson-Leahy has just been selected as Port Hills National MP Nuk Korako’s youth MP. Bridget Rutherford spoke to her about debating politics at the dinner table and settling into Christchurch. So, Te Puawai, what part of the city are you from? My family and I live in Halswell. And you go to Cashmere High School. Have you enjoyed your time there? It’s been quite a challenge moving from a small single-sex school (in Porirua, Wellington)

to a co-ed school with a roll twice the size, but I’ve had so many opportunities since moving here that it has made the transition far easier. I was also fortunate enough to be welcomed into the whanau

and Maori department at Cashmere, which has been such a privilege to be a part of. There’s a real sense of support in the whanau, and the Cashmere High School community in general. How old are you? I’m 17 and am in year 12, so I will be returning to Cashmere High School next year for my final year of schooling. What subjects do you take? This year, I’ve studied English, maths, history, media studies, and have completed a STAR paper through Canterbury University covering traditional Maori society. Have you always lived in Christchurch? I was actually born and raised in Porirua, but I have family who live in Christchurch, and travelled down to Christchurch regularly for Christmas holidays. I didn’t move down to Christchurch until earlier this year, but I have really enjoyed it.

What is your favourite thing about the city? I love being closer to some members of my family, including my beloved Granddad. In terms of the city itself, I really love the vibrancy it possesses, especially the way that art has been used throughout Christchurch to revitalise the city. What do you like to do in your spare time? I love the outdoors and being in a new city, I really like exploring all the places that I haven’t been to before. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the Humanities Council at school this year, which has given me a real push to address the injustice that is present in society, both at a national and international level. Through my involvement in the Humanities Council, I was fortunate enough to attend the World Vision and Sanitarium Senior Scholarship Week 2015 in the last school holidays, which further inspired me to work towards social change. Do you play any sports? I did a yoga class through school in term one of this year, but unfortunately I’m not quite as flexible as I anticipated when signing up for the class, so that

ended sooner rather than later. I’m not really a sporty person, but during the winter season I love to ski. I’m definitely more involved in the arts though and I’ve been playing the piano since I was five. In school, I’m a member of the Girls Barbershop Chorus and kapa haka. So you have been selected as Port Hills National Youth MP, congratulations! When did you find out? Thank you! I was told in a meeting with all of the applicants and Tutehounuku Korako last Tuesday (October 27), so that was exciting! It’s a truly invaluable opportunity and I’m really looking forward to it. When did you decide you wanted to get into politics? I’ve been surrounded by politics all of my life, so I can’t necessarily recall a specific epiphany-like moment of realisation. My interest has been more consistent. Why? I have always had an overriding interest in things political, and I think that probably stems from my parents and their constant discussions around the dinner table, television, and in the car about politics and current affairs.

for party politics In a sense, I’ve always been exposed to it, and from my parents’ influence I’ve realised the importance of politics and the way it essentially affects every aspect of our lives, so I know just how important politics has been in creating meaningful, tangible change in our country. Do you see any issues for the electorate’s youth that you already have plans to bring up or try to change? I definitely think that the problem of youth suicide is particularly relevant for people in this electorate, and in Canterbury as a whole, as has been identified as a consequence of the Canterbury earthquakes. But I’m still planning on hearing from youth in the electorate and identifying the issues prevalent in the Port Hills community that the constituency believes are the most pressing, and voicing these concerns during my tenure as Youth MP next year. What are you looking forward to most about your time as Youth MP? I’m really looking forward to learning from Nuk Korako, whom I will be representing in Youth Parliament. I’m also looking forward to hearing from other young people with the

same passion for bettering the world and addressing the social injustice, including the other 120 Youth MPs, as well as other young people in the Port Hills electorate and Christchurch as a whole. Do you chat about politics with your friends? I believe that young people really aren’t commended enough for the independent point of view that they bring to some of the more enduring issues of the day. In saying this, I do discuss politics with my friends, but the majority of my political discussions are with my family, so I’m excited to hear from different people with different political ideas and

perspectives. If you had to go to dinner with three current MP’s who would you choose? Nuk Korako, of course, as well as Chris Finlayson and Marama Fox. What portfolio would you like to sink your teeth into? I would be really keen to learn more about portfolios associated with the environment and social housing. What are your plans for when you leave school? My answer to this question tends to change quite regularly, but for the moment I am planning on doing a double degree in law and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in either Maori or history. The obvious choice for me after that would be to practise law, but I definitely think a law degree is a great foundation to have for multiple job opportunities. And finally, who do you look up to? I really do look up to many different people, but a political icon I really look up to is Dame Tariana Turia for her unwavering commitment to and love for the people, regardless of her political leanings.

Advanced denture and dental care in Halswell with Duchenne Dental.



For the team at Duchenne Dental Services in Halswell, business is all about giving patients the confidence to Eat, Talk and Smile. Duchenne prides itself on providing a professional and yet personal treatment using the latest in technology.



linical Dental Technician, Tristan Pattinson knows that well-fitting, natural-looking and secure dentures can transform the lives of his patients. “It can be a real challenge to get people who wear dentures into the dental chair and ask them to take out their dentures in front of me,” he explains. If they are prepared to take that step, then he and his team will do everything they can to help his patient achieve confidence in their smile. Duchenne Dental take their name from a French neurologist, Guillaume Duchenne, who determined that the most genuine smiles come from true happiness and use the muscles of the eyes as well as the mouth. Their goal is to provide a genuine Duchenne smile for every one of their patients. Like so many areas of modern life, dental technology is changing fast, and at Duchenne Dental Services, they too are moving into the digital

age, with advanced techniques and equipment to scan the mouth and jaw so that all their dentures are individually crafted to give the best possible fit. Digital 3-D printing is state-of-the-art in relation to denture technology, and Duchenne Dental is at the forefront of its use including the use of injection moulding techniques for the best comfort and functionality. As well as crafting new dentures, they also offer denture implants, relines and repairs, sports mouth guards and snoring solutions. Snoring and its effects are a real problem for many New Zealanders. Duchenne provides the Freedom™ sleep apnoea appliance and is designed as a comfortable way to minimise snoring ensuring a peaceful night for wearers and their partners. It is lightweight and practical for home use and travel so that sufferers can sleep on longhaul flights without embarrassment.

As part of the Halswell Dental Centre, Duchenne Dental patients benefit from a whole-team approach. This includes access to dentists and hygienists who can advise on the best way to take care of dentures, and remaining teeth. • To make a time and have a free personal consultation, with Tristan, ring the friendly team on (03) 322 9577 or visit

GOOD JOB: Briar Benson won the award for Most Commitment for her sole trader ship called Eastcoaster.

WELL DONE: Rajnita Prakash, Molly Barnett and Angel Lintott won the award for Best Social Enterprise with Full Bloom Trust.

Business-minded girls take enterprise awards Linwood College students have shown they have what it takes when setting up a business. Teams from Linwood went to the annual Canterbury Young Enterprise Awards held at Canterbury University on October 29 and came away with two awards. The students have worked hard all year to set up businesses or social enterprises. Briar Benson’s sole trader ship called Eastcoaster, sold personalised coasters and placemats. She was awarded the prize for most commitment. Another Linwood team made

up of Angel Lintott, Rajnita Prakash and Molly Barnett set up a not-for-profit called Full Bloom Trust. Full Bloom Trust got flower growers, including Aromauga Baxter Flowers, to donate flowers to them. The team then arranged them into bouquets and delivered them to rest homes. They were awarded the prize for best social enterprise. All the teams began the year brainstorming and formulating business ideas before writing business plans. Once the plans were formed

they presented to a panel of judges at a Dragons’ Den competition. After the Dragons’ Den, the hard work started off selling their product. To finish the year a write up and review had to be completed and sent to Wellington for marking. Revive ‘15, of Villa Maria College took out the overall award, while St Thomas of Canterbury team George was runner up. Those teams will go on to compete at the national finals in December.

Top awards for Marian sportswoman The year’s sporting success has been celebrated at the end-ofyear Marian College senior sports prize-giving held last week. Year 13 student Jessica Shaw reigned supreme taking home the top award for her sporting contributions throughout the year across three codes. Shaw was a member of the Christchurch Netball under-19 representative team that finished seventh at the nationals in July and was also named as a reserve for the New Zealand secondary schools’ team. She also walked away with most valuable player for touch rugby and named senior tennis champion.

Magma Gallery celebrates relocation with an exhibition


by Keith Morant

fter two years of operating from The Atrium at The Tannery, Magma Gallery has outgrown their location and is moving to bigger premises within the Tannery complex, across from Portobello Antiques on the other side of the car park. The new gallery will have a much-needed larger workshop area and a bigger exhibition space with fantastic natural light for viewing New Zealand artists’ work. The exhibition space showcases an extensive range of 25 New Zealand contemporary jewellers and sculptures, featuring Debra Fallowfield, Bob Wyber, Jerome de Bouter, Martyn Milligan and Nick Feint just to name a few. Also available are original paintings, limited edition fine art prints from renowned New Zealand artists the likes of Frizzell, Tony Ogle, Lester Hall and a great choice of giclees, all of which can be framed on site to the client’s specification. Magma Gallery provides a comprehensive picture framing service which ranges from budget level for decorative pieces to museum

level to insure that the most precious and delicate artwork will last the test of time by selecting the correct modern conservation materials and mounting methods. Framing any valuable painting, family heirloom, embroidery or tapestry work, sports paraphernalia, a favourite poster or a child’s first masterpiece are all part of the professional service and advice provided by the gallery and its experts. The team at Magma Gallery take their time to assist all clients in the design process to ensure that the specific piece of artwork will look its best and blend in nicely with its new home or office environment. Magna Gallery also offers art installation at a reasonable and affordable price. Nothing like having an expert hang the artwork on the wall to guarantee placement and assembly. To celebrate Magma Gallery’s relocation, they are excited to announce an exhibition by international artist Keith Morant. The artist will display 20 of his large acrylic pieces in addition to a number of his smaller watercolour paintings. The Christchurch artist has been exhibiting his pieces on the

and dermal needling for skin rejuvenation. Botox™ treatment is not only used for wrinkle removal, it is also highly effective for treating excessive underarm sweating. The application of dermal fillers for facial contouring softens the face so wrinkles and lines are much less obvious. Clients approaching the clinic for treatments like these often feel vulnerable, so the staff put them at ease and ensure they get all the information they need through an in-depth consultation. “We spend a lot of time working out what’s best for the client, look at the options and also discuss the costs,” the clinic’s Jenny Little explains. “People are encouraged to take information away and think about what

they want before committing to treatment,” Jenny says, “but there are also clients who want to have a Botox™ treatment straight away and then go back to work.” She says appearance medicine treatments have improved considerably over the 20 years the clinic has been operating, and there are products and methods to suit all types of skin. The clinic also offers mole mapping, mole removal and primary skin cancer removal, while another key area of treatment is varicose vein removal. Two methods are offered – endovenous laser treatment and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. The clinic has relationships with several health insurance providers and clients may be covered for varicose vein treatment, providing it is included in their policy. Transform Appearance Clinic is discreetly located at 52a Mandeville Street. It is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am, with late nights on Tuesday and Thursday, and Saturday from 9am to 3pm.

Youth Guarantee Trades


PIT Trades Youth Guarantee students are learning practical skills that not only lead to careers but are benefitting our community. Under the free New Zealand governmentled Youth Guarantee scheme, CPIT offers young people aged 16 to 19 years who have left school the opportunity to study and learn practical skills in areas such as the creative industries, computing, business, health, hospitality as well as trades. The skills acquired on these courses help students gain pathway into further study. In the six-month Introduction to Construction Allied Trades at CPIT, several student building projects are being donated to worthy causes such as Ronald McDonald House, the charitable trust that helps the families of sick children. CPIT joinery tutor Nigel Jamieson said these projects were real world learning opportunities that also gave back to the community. “When it’s finished they say, ‘wow’, and I hear a lot of them say, ‘actually I think I could build my own sleep out or playhouse’. And I tell them that’s great, now they can see how it’s done. They come away with a real sense of empowerment and achievement, which makes me proud to be a tutor,” Jamieson said. Youth Guarantee student D’Braye Kemp, 18, is hoping to carry on his studies in the exacting trade of joinery at CPIT next year. “It’s important to me to learn it right and get it right,” he said. Another example of high-spec Youth

Guarantee work is the sleep out recently donated to a social development trust at New Brighton. It was one of five made at CPIT Trades this year, with the added challenge of a curved roof line. Positive Directions Trust general manager Phil Tikao said the sleep out would make a difference to those accessing the trust’s social development services for the first time. “We haven’t really had a space for one-on-one interviewing, so we will use the sleep out as a nice, friendly space for talking to people and counselling. To have been gifted something like this just means so much to us.”

Aoraki Polytechnic

Red Cross First Aid Ensuring a safe work place

Imagine a classroom where students can use Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and the like…..and the tutor won’t mind at all.


magine a classroom where the students can attend concerts and events, sports games, go to court to watch a trial or to a council meeting to see the inner working of local body politics. That’s the reality of Aoraki Polytechnic’s media communication programme based at the CPIT campus in Christchurch. But that doesn’t mean the students don’t do any work. The polytechnic has embraced the rapidly-changing media environment for the entry level programme as students learn to write news stories and features, create radio news and programmes, shoot and edit video stories as well as getting in front of the camera. Tutor Dale McCord says the way the course operates is just the way it should be. While the course focusses on core skills, it educates the students about the many changing skills someone working in the media or communications business needs to have. “It’s not enough just to love writing these days. Students need a whole raft of skills so they can fit into a media environment where they are expected to be multi-skilled.” Print journalists now need to be able to step in front of a camera and provide a news video while a television journalist might have to write a story for the web and provide photos. McCord says the best thing about today’s students is that they are so adaptable and keen to try anything. They come equipped with social media skills and are able to connect quickly with people online. “I do have to do a bit of work to encourage

them to get out and actually talk to people face to face but they quickly grow in confidence doing that.” Students might feel they are going back to primary school for one part of the course – spelling and grammar which, McCord says, is a key skill for a journalist, now more than ever. “These days copy can be put online with very little input from anyone else so people have to be very strong in these core skills.” The students produce news bulletins on Compass FM and their own programme called Plugged in with Aoraki on Plains FM while the course also covers media law and ethics, photography and presenting. There are limited places available on this programme for 2016. For more information on Aoraki Polytechnic’s Media Communication programmes visit www. or call 0800 426 725.

ALL IN A DAY’S STUDY: Aoraki Polytechnic’s media communication course uses the city as part of their classroom.


earning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? Not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. It is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. Take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPR. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings. Imagine the feeling of inadequacy when someone asks ‘does anyone know first aid’ only to find that you were not taught these skills on your course. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. New Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in Australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. In times of emergency, such as the Canterbury earthquakes, many people were called upon to do first aid in a situation well beyond their comfort zone. This is the community resilience that we as good citizens should be trained for. Lives were undoubtedly saved as ordinary people pushed themselves into a role that they never expected. It is not difficult, and courses are not complicated. But one day, you will be called upon to help someone in need. Will you know what to do? If you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Legacy the car for foul weather SPECIFICATIONS

MY 2015 evaluations have almost been as much about the weather as they have about the cars. After a glorious summer, Christchurch was pounded by a wickedly cold winter, and it seems that whenever I’m planning to get out on the road there is bad weather around. And by that I’m referring to snow, ice, rain or wind. The day I was driving Subaru’s new Legacy, conditions where at their worst, I woke up to snow on the car, and the plains were blanketed from Darfield through to Methven. On several occasions snow flurries slowed my progress. As it turned out, they were probably the most suitable conditions in which to evaluate a four-wheel-drive vehicle and Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheeldrive system is one of the best on the market. All Subarus sold new in New Zealand are four-wheel-drive, and because of that the brand has earned a great reputation here in the South Island. Skiers and other recreational enthusi-


Price: Subaru Legacy, $39,990. Dimensions: Length,4795mm; width, 1840mm; height, 1500mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder longitudinal (boxer), four-wheeldrive, 2498cc, 129kW, 235Nm, continuously variable automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8.8sec.

SUBARU LEGACY: high comfort levels developed through a spacious in-cabin environment.

asts love Subaru, even if you aren’t into winter sport there are safety and other benefits gleaned from buying all-wheel-drive. And Subaru has made it simpler to choose from their lineup. Quite simply, if you want a station wagon you have to buy Outback, if you want a sedan you have to buy Legacy. Of course, there are other cross-sections of models, Impreza sedan and hatchback, and the sports utility vehicles Forester and XV. At present the Legacy is available in just two specifications depending on engine options. There’s a 2.5-litre four-cylinder version and a 3.6-litre sixcylinder unit, both petrol powered. I evaluated the big six

several weeks back, this evaluation focuses on the entry-level model. Subaru rates the Legacy four with a 7.3litre per 100km (39mpg) combined cycle average, which fits well with the 8.6l/100km (33mpg) figure showing when I took the test car back to the dealership. On the subject of figures, the Legacy has 129kW and 235Nm power outputs both realised a little close together at 5800rpm and 4000rpm but such is the torquey nature of horizontally-opposed engines there is no shortage of power. Drive is sent through a paddleshift, six-step continuously variable transmission, the benefit of

CVT is little restriction of drive, the engine works unimpeded against the seamless flow of gearing. Well, that’s no surprise if you consider the engine is much the same as that which powers the Impreza WRX, sans turbocharger. Part of its sporty appeal can be attributed to the sport/intelligent drive mode program which can be selected to suit whatever driving style you feel like during each journey. Against the clock the Legacy four will launch to 100km/h from a standstill in 8.8sec and will make a highway overtake in 5sec (80km/h to 120km/h). All that aside, the Legacy’s greatest strength is that of its ability underneath. The driveline and suspension combine to provide controlled handling manners, more so when road conditions aren’t at their best. Of course, there are inbuilt

traction and stability control systems in place, but such is the quality of the four-wheel fully independent suspension the car doesn’t rely on them. The 225/50 x 18in Dunlop Sport rubber works well to maintain grip, the tyres are also quiet and send solid information as to how they are reacting back to the steering wheel. And if you do venture off the seal, the Legacy gets hill descent control as part of a clever series of electronic programs which keep the car out of trouble in the first instance, most linked to Subaru’s Eyesight safety system. In entry-level form the Legacy is reasonably well appointed. I would have liked to see satellite navigation fitted, but it’s not. However, there are plenty of other specification items which work towards its price position. The Legacy is the quintessential mid-to-large five-seater sedan. It has high comfort levels developed through a spacious in-cabin environment. Subaru sales have been constantly buoyant throughout the years. In the South Island the brand has been served well thanks to the challenging environment in which we live. It’s a nice feeling to have that quality engineering underneath when the bad weather hits.

Quality vehicles and service under one roof Whether purchasing a used Subaru from CroweSport or getting your car looked after in their workshop, you can be assured you are dealing with a team who have not just extensive knowledge of the brand, but a full-on passion for Subarus.


ll their cars are hand-selected from Japan with only the highest quality examples being purchased. The vehicles all come fully inspected and serviced by their team of experts and range from those with low mileage and high specification through to more affordable options. There are always plenty on the forecourt to choose from, with new vehicles arriving on a regular basis. Owner Trevor Crowe says he believes in the brand because of its safety in all weather conditions. “Being all-wheel drive, it is equally safe on and off-road and drives much better in wet, slippery conditions than two-wheel drive vehicles.” Their nopressure sales team are just as enthusiastic and knowledgeable and are on hand to help you make the right choice for you. CroweSport are not only renowned for selling quality Subarus at great prices, but are a complete one-stop-shop also known

for providing terrific vehicle care, too. Their team of mechanics have extensive experience in servicing all makes and models as well as Subarus. They pride themselves on the high-quality work they do and on their customer service. They offer loan vehicles, if needed, and offer free cambelt, brake and cooling system checks. They use the same top-of-therange products on their customers’ cars as on their own race cars to give extra peace of mind. Their team of experts will carry out lube and service checks, make sure CV joints, brakes, clutches, shock absorbers and suspension systems are all safe. They can turn their knowledge and experience to anything from a wheel alignment to a full engine or transmission system overhaul, or from replacing a battery to a Warrant of Fitness or new tyres. Their passion for motorsport is, of course,

led by Trevor himself, and what they learn about their vehicles when they are out racing is brought back to the workshop and passed onto their customers. For great Subaru sales and service, find them at 518 Moorhouse Avenue, or visit Phone 03 379 7615 or email
