Skate park may be rolling by July „„ By Caitlin Miles A TEMPORARY skate park could be operating in Sumner in several weeks. Sumner Green and Skate Group member Kimberley Mossman told a public meeting last week that it is working with the city council to find a suitable place for the temporary skate ramp in time for the school

holidays in July. but was shut down on February The announcement 10 when the city council was met with excitement ran noise tests and found and clapping from the it failed to comply with the audience. city plan’s noise standards. Ms Mossman said the But now the group is news was exciting for working with the city people as the skate ramp council to find a place to was “much loved” and Kimberley put the ramp while plans “hugely missed”. The Mossman for a more permanent temporary skate ramp structure are put together. was located at 36 Wakefield Ave, The group is currently in the

process of working with the city council to create a feasibility study to identify where a skate park and community green space would best be suited. The study will involve looking at locations and talking to people from Ferrymead through to Sumner about the best place for a skate park. At the meeting, Ms Mossman said she knew it wasn’t good

news for everyone, but they hoped to meet most of the community’s needs if they could. HAVE YOUR SAY: Where do you think the temporary skate park should go? Where should a community green space go? Send your thoughts to caitlin.miles@

A GREAT photo on the front page this week taken by Ruth Leslie, mum of a Sumner Mussels under 7 rippa rugby player. Ruth captured players Evan Cameron, Marle Dickson and Hugo Prain with the awards they won after a hard fought win on Saturday – and those boys look very happy. Many thanks for a great shot Ruth, and if there are any other mums and dads who get their cameras out on the sports fields at the weekends, feel free to email them to sports reporter gordon. More good news for local young people – a temporary skate park looks like it will be up-andrunning for the school holidays. We reveal on page 1 today that the park will be in place somewhere in Sumner by early July. – Barry Clarke

Korako’s signs breach rules

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart PORT HILLS National list MP Nuk Korako has been ordered to take down several of his signs because they are too big. He is one of several candidates cross Christchurch sent letters by the city council ordering them to take down signs which break advertising rules. Outside the election period, candidates have to follow city council rules, which ban any signs taller than 90cm or wider than 60cm unless they have special consent. Bigger signs of up to 3 sq m are allowed between July 22 and September 22. Mr Korako said he was not aware of the rules until he was contacted by the city council. He said he had no complaints about his signs last election. He said he had taken down some signs, including some large ones on Dyers Pass Rd, but had left others up in commercial areas, where he believed they did not break the rules. “The council has got a job to do, but they’ve been really good about it, they don’t come down on you with a hammer,” he said. There are also rules around election advertising, which is only allowed during the election

period. But Mr Korako said his billboards were advertising his office, not asking for votes, so he believed they did not break the rules. City council head of regulatory compliance Tracey Weston said complaints had been made about 10 different election signs so far this year, and some of them were still under investiga-

tion. But she would not say who the signs belonged to, or if other candidates had also been warned. She said the majority of the signs were in residential areas and broke the rules because of their size and content. Christchurch Central Labour candidate Duncan Webb also had to take down several of his

signs, because they were too big. He said he had seen dozens of other non-compliant signs up all over the city, but he was told by a city council worker that the rules were usually only enforced if someone complained. “So it comes down to people who might not agree with my politics complaining about my signs,” he said. •Korako’s column, page 9

In Brief TIDE PUTS OUT FIRE The Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade has found a new way to put out fires – let the tide take care of it. The crew was called to Boulder Bay near Taylors Mistake at about 10.40pm on Monday after reports of a fire on the beach. They found a small pile of building material ablaze and decided to let the incoming tide take care of it. A fire communications spokesman said it was great that mother nature could help. DISASTER PLAN MEETING A disaster response team set up in Redcliffs is planning another meeting on July 12 to look at the answers from a recent survey. The survey asked residents to answer questions about the response to the tsunami warning and what they think is important when planning for future events. A community emergency hub is also in the process of being set up, but it does not yet have a physical address. To get involved in the group, email LAKE WARNING LIFTED A health warning issued for Lake Forsyth in January has been lifted. The health warning was issued when high levels of toxic greenblue algae were found in the lake. Environment Canterbury have been monitoring the levels which have now fallen below a level of concern.

Amy Barry

Tripping the light fantastic while A year on from winning Strictly Sumner, Amy Barry is preparing for another dance competition, Dancing with the Stars, a competition to raise money for charity organisation Home and Family. She spoke to Caitlin Miles about her passion for dance and why she moved from Germany to Sumner Were you a dancer when you were growing up? I did ballet, tap and modern which, I guess, you call jazz nowadays, when I was three and continued until I was around 16. I dropped ballet a bit earlier, I went to university and didn’t do much of it but I’ve tried different classes and different things. Then I moved to Germany and lived there for eight years and didn’t do any. Then I moved here three years ago and Strictly Sumner kind of threw me back into it with latin American-style ballroom dancing which was really, really different from my childhood.

SMOOTH MOVES: Amy Barry and Nick Brown danced their way to a perfect 10 in Strictly Sumner, making them the winning couple in the fundraising event.


Let’s go back a couple of steps, what did you study at university? I actually did art and design

and I’ve sold some paintings since I’ve been over here which is another side of me I guess. Where are you from

originally? I’m from the north-west of England, Lancashire, which is a bit further than Manchester up



north. Did you move to Germany after you finished university? Yes, after I finished uni doing art and design. I worked for a few fashion brands first and that’s where I met my husband and that’s what took us to Germany because we were both working for Puma, the sports brand. It was really good, we thought we would just try it out but we ended up staying for eight years and having two children there. Where in Germany were you based? We were in Nuremberg, which has great Christmas lights and markets, it was really amazing, it was a really ex-pat community because Puma and Adidas were right across from each other so there were thousands of people. In our tiny village in Germany, we had 93 different nationalities. It was quite easy for my husband and I because there were so many nationalities there needed to be a common language and that was English, so we were quite lucky. Do your children speak German? My little boy started as bilingual but because we left when he was around 3 it hasn’t stuck. I think if we had stayed an extra year and a half he would have retained more.

fundraising for charity What was it like going from the United Kingdom to Germany, was it quite different? Yes, it was a bit different but I think the biggest change was going from Germany to New Zealand because it’s so regiment in Germany and it’s so relaxed and open to suggestion here in New Zealand. Whereas in Germany it was all done one way and that was the only way, they wouldn’t think out of the box. It’s quite a breath of fresh air to come to New Zealand and have a fresh outlook on everything in life. It does sound very different, what brought you over here? My husband now heads up the design team for Kathmandu. Wow, that’s a big deal, and you live in Sumner? Yes, we did and we live in Sumner, we just bought our house at Christmas actually. Do you enjoy living in Sumner? We love it. It just has such a good community vibe and it’s so good for families and there are so many opportunities and I’m amazed at how many events are put on and how open it is and everybody gets together. Not just this community but New Zealand in general I think. Everyone treats you as a neighbour here which is the contrast to Ger-

FAMILY: Amy with Oscar, Freda and husband Darren.

many, as lovely as it was there to live there. Here is different. Do the kids like living here? Yes, they do. My little boy is six and he goes to Sumner School, my daughter Frida is almost four and she goes to a local preschool. Are you working or a fulltime mum? I guess I’m a full-time mum, I’ve done some paintings and managed to sell some of those like at the playgroup we have something where mums can show what kind of stuff we can do just to get mum’s showing what they can do which is really cool. So I took in some of my artwork and got a few buyers which was great. I should really do more but it’s just one of those


things I never really set aside time to do. Maybe that’s the next thing once I do this charity stuff, do something for myself. How much charity work do you do? I just started picking it up last year with the community fundraiser called Strictly Sumner. Can you tell me a bit about that? Twenty contestants were paired together to make 10 couples and we had about three months training and we had to do a cha-cha (dance) on the night then we got to choose our second dance. My partner was the owner of Supervalue in Sumner and we practiced and practiced and practiced because we wanted to do a fun dance with jumps and lifts

and everything. The audience loved in. Why did you decide to give Strictly Sumner a go? I guess since I was dancing when I was a kid and this was a new style and something new that I wanted to try. I guess also because I was new to Sumner and not working this was something I wanted to try and throw myself into the community and help raise money for the community at the same time as learning something new and doing something a little outside of my comfort zone and then I got really into it and really competitive. How did you find a partner for Dancing with the Stars? At a recent 80s Prom-styled fundraiser at Sumner School I saw one of the children’s father dancing so I asked him if he wanted to enter and he said yes. So you’re already planning for it? Yes, we have already had a brainstorming session and we have some pretty solid ideas of what we want to do in place. We’ve also got to raise $1000 to enter so I’m hosting a bingo night to get that money and hopefully cover some costs myself. A bingo night is an interesting fundraiser.

I wanted to do something a little different that would be appealing to guys and girls, there’ll be more than just bingo. There will be lots of different games and prizes and things, I just need to get more businesses and maybe even a sponsor involved to help cover the costs. I have to put up a lot of money for this so I’m hoping to cover the costs and be able to pay the entry fee for the competition. When is the bingo night? It’s on May 26 at the Sumner School hall. When is the Dancing with the Stars competition? June 22. That’s not a lot of time to get everything organised. I know, I’m running around trying to get everything done and sort out everything I keep catching myself because I’m excited about the competition and I’ve put more planning and time into that then I have the actual bingo night which is what I need to put time into so I can actually compete. • To get tickets or to find out how you can help Amy send her an email at amyjorobinson@hotmail. or phone her on 027 314 9215

News Volunteers take on Sky Tower „„ By Caitlin Miles FIREFIGHTERS FROM Banks Peninsula have spent months raising money and training for the Sky Tower Challenge, collectively raising more than $30,000. Members from the Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour and Governors Bay Volunteer Fire Brigades all competed in the gruelling challenge, which took place in Auckland on Saturday. The firefighters raced up 51 flights of stairs while carrying 25kg of gear. The money raised from the event is a yearly fundraiser for Leukemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand. Lyttelton Volunteer Fire Brigade were creative with their fundraising ideas to raise $15,966.97 towards the cause, including hiring themselves out to the highest bidder to do whatever they needed. The nine team members had varying success and it was the first time Candice Milner took on the challenge, she completed it in 26min and 32sec and placed 55 out of 68 females. Jeremy Wheeler was the fastest in the team, he placed 49 in the open category, with a time of 13min and 21sec. Governors Bay raised just over

Historic clock ticking again THE CLOCK is finally ticking again in Lyttelton. The final touches were put on the historic Lyttelton clock tower, after months of repairs. The clock suffered moderate damage in the February 22, 2011, earthquake and needed repairs. Work on the historic clock tower was built in 1953 on the site of the old Lyttelton Goal. It was designed by John Hendry, an architect from Christchurch, and built by Lyttelton local Dr Charles Upham. Work by city council contractors started in January to bring the tower up to 67 per cent of the new building standard. A new roof has been put on the tower, decorative lighting has been added, the tower has been cleaned and the clock has been restored to working order. The city council budgeted $170,000 for the work to be completed.

Your Local Views Long process to school move Heathcote ward city councillor Sara Templeton writes about the proposed land swap to move Redcliffs School to Redcliffs Park and the importance of listening to the views and opinions of the community On April 27 the Ministry of Education formally asked to acquire Redcliffs Park from the city council for the relocation of Redcliffs School. This follows the Ministry’s due diligence on the site and formally starts the city council’s processes. The first step is for the city council to decide to send it out for consultation. The process to acquire the land is quite a long one and complicated by the fact that much of the park is actually Crown-owned but managed by the city council. One of the communities’ clear concerns with the use of Redcliffs Park is the loss of local green space, so it is good to see that an effective ‘swap’ is being offered by

ve Remo ells ng sm i k o o c am! e t s d an

the MoE, for the old school site on Main Rd. The consultation for both the ‘disposal’ of Redcliffs Park and ‘acquisition’ of the Main Rd site will happen concurrently. A hearings panel will then hear submissions and make a recommendation to city council, which has the final decision. It is vitally important that all voices are heard as part of the process so that we can get the best outcomes for the community. There is a difficult tension between the long-term needs of the wider community and the very real impacts that that may have on individuals within the community and the process needs to be an open and transparent one where everyone can be confident in the decision making. While the city council goes through this process, the MoE will start consulting on the

Pirate’s Corner

Be prepared for winter „„ By Gary Manch, navigational safety officer, Lyttelton planning framework for the site. The MoE wishes to use Section 71 of the Regeneration Act to override the District Plan and ‘designate’ Redcliffs Park for education purposes. This will also be open for community consultation, but it is important that any decision on this not happens before the city council makes its decisions on the disposal of the land, so as to not prejudice the decisionmaking process. Throughout this time is it important that we stay respectful towards each other as members of the community, that we are accepting of differing views and open to real conversations where we don’t just listen to respond, but listen to understand each other.

WE HAD our first frost the other day, signalling that winter is inevitably sneaking up on us. I have to admit I am a summer person, however, I am a great believer in using the quieter months for maintenance – including painting posts, and replacing signs and buoys throughout Canterbury.   As I travel around the region I am constantly reminded how very privileged we are to live in such a beautiful environment. I can see that you are wondering ‘where is he going with this?’.  Well nowhere in particular in terms of reminding boaties of the rules – I’ve done my fair share of that over the past few months, giving advice in relation to various rules and regulations with a little bit of safety information thrown in for good measure.

My message today is simply that winter is always a good time to consolidate our thoughts and prepare for the oncoming spring. My old army instructor had a great saying, which was known as the 5Ps. Prior preparation prevents poor performance. I can harp on all day about rules, regulations and safety – but I’m sure you’ll agree that the 5Ps sums up our boating ethos in a nutshell.  Take care to prepare.  It’s crucial.  So on that note, always prepare.  If you are going boating during the winter months, please remember, take two forms of communication (waterproof) with you, wear a life jacket and plenty of warm clothing. Lastly, check the local and marine weather forecast, and – as I have said a thousand times – if in doubt, don’t go out.

Cruise ship berth will be good for Lyttelton


Port Hills list MP Nuk Korako writes about what cruise ships returning to Lyttelton will mean for the area Tomorrow I am hosting the deputy prime minister and Minister of Tourism, Paula Bennett, in the Port Hills. I am delighted that as part of her visit, I will be able to take her to Gladstone Quay, and show her where the Lyttelton Cruise Berth will take shape over the next two years. The announcement from city council that $56 million will be invested in the new cruise berth is great news for Lyttelton and for Christchurch, and comes after a lot of work from members and leaders in the Lyttelton community. We have been concerned for a couple of years that if a cruise berth wasn’t restored to Lyttelton soon, we

INCOME: An artist’s impression of a cruise ship at the new berth.

would see cruise ship companies skipping Christchurch, and perhaps even the whole South Island. It makes sense that Lyttelton Port Company’s first priority has been the activities that generate the most income for the company. In the absence of expectations to the contrary from their shareholder, the city council, the expectation of a business is that it maximises profit from its operations. However, the city council needs to look at the bigger picture of what is best for our city and our region. The city council has done the right thing, and

Christchurch can expect a big boost in tourism income as a result. It will be important that we ensure Lyttelton is seen as a destination in itself – we want many of our cruise visitors to spend time in Lyttelton, not just pass through on their way to and from Christchurch. It is a credit to everyone who has been involved that cruise ships are coming back to Lyttelton. The berth is due to be completed in 2019, and I look forward to seeing Lyttelton once more being both a gateway and a destination for thousands of visitors to Canterbury.

Life in Bay area inspired exchange student Ferrymead Rotary member Barbara Crooks writes about a previous Rotary exchange student and what she has gone on to achieve since being in the programme Twenty years ago when Bianca Theeruth was a Rotary exchange student from South Africa living in the Bay Harbour area and going to Linwood College, running was not part of her deal. But a few weeks ago she ran the London Marathon. Not because she’s now a runner of great talent. “I had never run a mile, let alone attempt 26.2 of them willingly,” she said. But because she wanted to support education and social justice in southern Africa by helping fund post-graduate scholarships. After her exchange year – when she was hosted by Ferrymead Rotary – she studied agriculture in South Africa and earned a Nelson Mandela scholarship for post-graduate study in the United Kingdom. “A decision influenced by my Rotary year in New Zealand,”

she said. She has been involved in pig and dairy research in the UK since. Her marathon training involved 189 days, three to five runs a week, four sets of trainers, and twice hitting the infamous “wall”. She came to enjoy running. She gathered £1698 (NZD $3197.47) in sponsorship, some of it from old friends at Ferrymead Rotary, for her Canon Collins Educational Trust scholarship cause. She said in the week before the marathon, she experienced a wave of emotions – anxiety, nerves, excitement, pride and sadness – that she would miss the running she had come to love. On the day, she powered through the 42.5km in just under four and half hours, “raised three blisters and tears of joy, and had the best day out”. Along the way with 40,000 others, she found herself in awe of runners with physical impairments fundraising for their respective charities. “It was an incredibly humbling experience, demonstrating the strength and potential of the human body and mind. And the crowds cheering us on were amazing –

total strangers shouting out your name and encouraging you on your way. I have learnt so much about myself,” she said. So, what do you do after your first marathon and you’re hooked on running. If you’re Bianca, the answer is easy: You enter the Birmingham Marathon in October and support a friend in her first halfmarathon as part of a lifestyle change to get fit, healthy and lose weight.

•Rotary youth exchange students spend 12 months in a foreign country. Each student is attached to a Rotary club, which organises three or four host families. Ferrymead Rotary has hosted six exchange students.

SUPPORT: Former exchange student Bianca Theeruth took part in the London Marathon recently to help raise money. The Ferrymead Rotary club supported her in the marathon as it did when she was part of the club’s exchange programme.

Grant’s Health Tips


Protect yourself for up to 3 months from cold & flu

It’s coming into the time of year to be thinking about prevention of colds & flu. Buccaline is an oral antibacterial prophylaxis for the prevention of secondary bacterial infections associated with cold and flu. Buccaline provides active immunisation against bacterial colds. Illnesses of the upper respiratory are often caused by bacterial infections. Viral and influenza-like illnesses are frequently made worse by an additional bacterial infections and take longer to recover from. Immunology investigations show that Buccaline significantly improves resistance to colds and flu. Protection becomes effective after taking the last set of tablets. To maintain effectiveness as well as taking Buccaline at the beginning of the cold season take it again in the middle of the cold season. Tablets should be swallowed whole with some liquid one-hour before breakfast or lunch.

Ask your pharmacist if Buccaline is right for you. Note: Buccaline is not intended as an alternative to influenza vaccination. Pharmacist-Only medicine. Always read the label and use as directed.

Call for volunteers to help replant after Port Hills fire REPLANTING 7200 plants is no easy job, but it’s about to take place on the Port Hills with volunteers doing the work. Over the next four months, 12 planting days will be held to start rejuvenating the area of the Port Hills which was ravaged by fire in February. The first planting day will be May 25, and each session will accommodate up to 80 volunteers. The spots have already started to fill up and city council Port Hills ranger Di Carter said the response from the public wanting to help was “absolutely fantastic”. The replanting is just the start of the rejuvenation, with volunteers also needed to maintain the plants through the seasons. For the next 12 post-fire Port Hills restoration planting events, volunteers can register online at Eventfinda to reserve a seat on free buses that will take them to planting sites, thanks to the support of Environment Canterbury. There is no parking available at the sites. The meeting point for the bus is at The Princess Margaret Hospital at 8.45am for morning events and 12.15pm for afternoon

PLANTING: With more than 7000 plants to be replanted, city council park rangers need help from the public to replant areas in the Port Hills.

events. Some times will suit families including Mt Ada on June 10 and Marleys Hill on June 24. Volunteers should be prepared for all weather and bring a warm hat, sturdy boots, gloves

and a clearly named spade if possible, although some will be provided. Postponement notices will be posted on the city council website by 3pm the day before an event.

UNSIGHTLY: Environment Canterbury councillor Cynthia Roberts was one of about 720 volunteers who braved the cold weather last Saturday to help remove rubbish from the Heathcote River and Avon-Heathcote Estuary as part of the annual Mother of All Clean Ups. About 725 bags of rubbish and more than 250 large loose items, which varied from mattresses, televisions to even an unopened bottle of champagne, were collected from the 156km of river bank and estuary edge.

News Event to celebrate market

Water being pumped again at Birdlings Flat PUMPING HAS resumed at Birdlings Flat after repairs were made to a water well. Water was trucked from Christchurch to Birdlings Flat for over a month following concerns over the well’s structural safety. The Jones Rd well services the Birdlings Flat community but was out of use from the start of April due to structural damage at the top of the well head. Head of Three Waters and Waste John Mackie said it was inspected by well drillers using CCTV who found no issues with the rest of the structure. The top of the well head has been upgraded to prevent the well casing from slumping in future. Mr Mackie said the reason for the slump was still unknown. Water samples taken to assess the quality and safety of the water have shown “no degradation of water quality” he said. The council resumed pumping from the Jones Rd well last Tuesday. Mr Mackie said costs for repairing the well and trucking in 60,000-litres of water per day were not yet available. He said no additional restrictions were imposed on residents as they had always been restricted to 1000 litres of water per 24 hours.

TASTY: The long lunch is planned to celebrate what the farmers’ market has provided the community with for the last six years.

by locals. “While locals tell us they enjoy shopping at the market to buy fresh, locally grown food, the opportunity it provides each week for residents to “bump” into one another while buying

artisan bread or a piece of handmade cheese is just as highly valued,” Ms Rutland said. •The event is planned for 12.30pm on June 5 at the Mt Pleasant Centre. Tickets can

be bought from the centre from the or phone Ms Rutland on 384 2160 or 021 239 8946. Money raised from the tickets will go back into the market, to help improve it.






IT’S BEEN six years since the Mt Pleasant Farmers Market was set up to support people following the February 22, 2011, earthquake – and it’s still going, offering the same support. With no supermarkets close by and a limited amount of food and water available, Mt Pleasant resident Tom Davies decided to set up a market to help people get what they needed. Six years on the market’s key role has shifted a little, while there isn’t an emergency associated with it any more it still provides people with what they need. While it also provides a place for members of the community to meet or “bump into one another”. A long lunch has been planned for Queen’s Birthday weekend to celebrate what the market has provided for the community. It will, of course, involve the fresh produce often sold at the market through a three-course meal created by local chef Kris Buist. A team of volunteers will help in the kitchen, serve the food and provide the music. Event organiser Linda Rutland said even after all this time the market was still widely used

Scholarship for Port Hills researcher AKAROA’S Steffan Kraberger has received a $10,000 scholarship to help him work on his thesis about making the Port Hills resistant to fire. Mr Kraberger received the Freemasons postgraduate scholarship to assist with completing a part-time Master of Landscape Architecture at Lincoln University, which he will work on over three years. He previously studied a Bachelor of Architectural Studies at Victoria University. Between then and going to Lincoln University, he went overseas on a three-year working holiday. During that time, he worked in Chile breeding cacti and aloe vera, and in France at Taktyk, a landscape urban design firm in Paris.

On returning to Akaroa, Mr Kraberger started his own company sub-contracting his landscape design services to fund his study. He has volunteered with Akaroa’s Garden of Tane scenic reserve and as secretary of its reserve management committee, has led local school children in working bees and developed their interest in native trees. He has also carried out practical work upgrading walking tracks and planting native trees within the reserve and throughout Banks Peninsula.

The Color Of Our Sky From a talented new voice comes a sweeping, emotional journey of two childhood friends in Mumbai, India, whose lives converge only to change forever one fateful night.. India, 1986: Mukta, a ten-year-old village girl from the lower-caste Yellama cult has come of age and must fulfill her destiny of becoming a temple prostitute, as her mother and grandmother did before her. In an attempt to escape her fate, Mukta is sent to be a house girl for an upper-middle-class family in Mumbai. There she discovers a friend in the daughter of the family, high-spirited eight-year-old Tara, who helps her recover from the wounds of her past. Tara introduces Mukta to an entirely different world, and a friendship that soon becomes a sisterhood. But one night in 1993, Mukta is kidnapped from Tara’s family home and disappears. Shortly thereafter, Tara and her father move to America. A new life in Los Angeles awaits them but Tara never recovers from the loss of her best friend. Eleven years later, Tara, now an adult, returns to India determined to find Mukta. As her search takes her into the brutal underground world of human trafficking, Tara begins to uncover long-buried secrets in her own family that might explain what happened to Mukta-and why she came to live with Tara’s family in the first place. Moving from a traditional Indian village to the bustling modern metropolis of Bombay, to Los Angeles and back again, this is a heartbreaking and beautiful portrait of an unlikely friendship-a story of love, betrayal, and, ultimately redemption.

The volunteers and residents’ association has also started working on GPS mapping of the tracks in the area so people can explore them.

Learning about farming LEARNING HOW to milk cows was one of the fun activities pupils from Diamond Harbour School found out about. Recently the children from Te Kōhanga in the school took a very special school trip to Orton

Bradley to visit Laura’s Dairy farm. When the pupils arrived they learned about the farm and how it operates. The pupils split into two groups and while one group met

one of the farmers, Laura, and watched a cow getting milked, the other group learned facts about cows. The pupils even got to try some fresh milk when they stopped for morning tea.​

Nel shows his class SPORTS

Lawson up for sportsman of the year Winning a record 11th national title has seen Sumner Bowling Club’s Gary Lawson named as a finalist in the sportsman of the year award at this month’s Bowls Canterbury annual awards. In January, Lawson became the most successful Kiwi bowler of all time with victory in the men’s pairs at the Bowls New Zealand national championships in New Plymouth. He was also part of the successful Canterbury senior men’s inter-centre team which are finalists for the team of the year award. The Sumner men’s sevens are also finalists in the team award.

Sumner is currently in eighth spot with four rounds remaining before the competition is split

into a top and bottom six. On Saturday, they will play Shirley, who are six competition points ahead of them in seventh. The last time the two teams met, Nel scored two tries in a 41-7 win at Burwood Park.

He is also Sumner’s top try scorer, crossing the line four times this season. Sumner were aided by the return of fullback/winger and Canterbury Mitre 10 Cup representative Marshall Suckling, who turned out for the first time this season against HSOB. “It was huge for us having him back,” said Dodgson.

sharpens young adult brains Regular physical activity improves brain function even in young adults considered in their prime and at the height of cognitive ability, according to a University of Otago study.


body of research already exists showing aerobic exercise improves brain function in older adults, but there is a limited amount of literature on how it affects young adults. The Otago researchers, led by Department of Psychology Senior Lecturer Dr Liana Machado, set out to test the oft-held belief that the brains of young adults in their prime might not benefit as much as older people from regular sustained exercise. They took 52 tertiary students, aged between 18 to 30, and put them through a series of cognitive tests on a computer while measuring oxygen availability in

the frontal lobe of their brains, as well as their self-reported exercise frequency. Dr Machado says their “surprising” findings, just published online in the journal Psychophysiology, show that both blood supply to the brain and cognitive functioning appear to benefit from regular exercise in young adults. “This provides compelling evidence that regular exercise, at least five days per week, is a way to sharpen our cognitive ability as young adults – challenging the assumption that living a sedentary lifestyle leads to problems only later in life,” she says. The research also provides potential insight into understanding why people

who regularly engage in aerobic exercise tend to function better on a cognitive level. “I think the idea that young people do not have to worry about exercising since they are in their prime developmentally is rapidly being overturned by mounting evidence that even the brains of young adults can benefit from regular exercise,” she says. “The exercise could involve brisk walking or more vigorous activity, and could be made up of a few 10 minute bouts of exercise, rather than one single block of exercise,” she says. The researchers also found that body mass index was not a key factor in how

well the brain functioned, indicating that regular engagement in physical activity may be more important than body weight. Dr Machado says she had noticed over the years that university students appeared progressively less fit. “I wondered whether we might find significant relationships between exercise levels, oxygen availability in the brain, and cognition in the young adults, but no studies had considered this in healthy young adults.” These findings come at a time of increased scientific focus on links between exercise and cognitive health in older adults.
