Halswell school ahead of schedule

Heathcote on the wild side

A NEW school in Halswell is set to open three years ahead of schedule due to rapid growth in the area. Education Minister Nikki Kaye said the $11 million Halswell West Primary School would open in 2019, with construction beginning in early 2018. The new school will be situated on the corner of Richmond and Killarney Aves, near the new residential subdivision of Knights Stream Park, between Prebbleton and Oaklands. “The Halswell area is experiencing rapid growth, and we’ve responded to that by bringing forward the planned date for Halswell West Primary School to ensure children will be able to attend a local school,” Ms Kaye said. The new school, which is part of the Christchurch School Rebuild programme, was originally scheduled to open in 2022. It will cater for children in years 1 to 8 and will initially have space for 450 students, with the capacity to expand up to 700. “There will be multiple stages to the build, with the second stage beginning when roll projections show that more spaces are required,” Ms Kaye said. •Turn to page 3

Tuesday July 25 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

TOP MARKS to Sarah Webber for her great out of the box flooding photos. It was a dismal time for many as the Heathcote flexed its muscle yet again and spilled its contents into properties. But Sarah’s photos (see pages 1, 4, 5) at least put a lighter spin on what was a very nasty event for many. We put the photos on Rise Up Christchurch and our website and no doubt they were shared around the world. So thanks for letting us have them Sarah! Also, top marks to school teacher Ryan Pearce who picked up a silver at the recent waka ama world champs. There’s an interesting back story to Ryan, and Ferrymead Rotary member Barbara Crooks explains all on page 6. - Barry Clarke

Panels may be removed RSA claims council wasted $25,000 „„ By Gabrielle Stuart CONTROVERSIAL $25,000 glass graffiti protection panels around the New Brighton War Memorial may be removed, sparking calls they have been a waste of money. The panels were installed around the memorial last month, but were criticised by the New Brighton RSA and by people in the Kim Money community who said they were “horribly ugly”. The Coastal-Burwood Community Board is now considering taking them down and using lighting, security cameras and more open

landscaping to discourage vandalism instead. Board chairwoman Kim Money has met with New Brighton RSA representatives to discuss the idea. Ms Money said the options included removing the low walls



in the area to open it to the street, making it less attractive to vandals. But Ms Money said there was no funding currently set aside for the work, and having it approved could take months. New Brighton RSA executive

manager Garry House said that was not good enough. He said the city council had wasted money on the panels without properly consulting the community. “If you’ve blown the money on doing something stupid, that’s no excuse. You’ve just got to find the money somewhere else,” he said. The memorial was vandalised in 2015, and he said the idea of protective panels had been briefly mentioned then, but there had been no discussion of it since. “I understand the council was trying to do the right thing by protecting the cenotaph, so I applaud them for that, but they went about it very badly,” he said. He said the association would be happy to see the panels left up as a temporary measure, but only for a few months. But Ms Money said the plan was likely to take some time to approve, as it would need to be put to both city council staff and Development Christchurch Ltd, the city council subsidiary responsible for revitalising the New Brighton foreshore.

The flood waters in Christchurch didn’t quite reach biblical proportions but one photographer Sarah Webber has managed to spread a bit of chuckle through her imaginative photographs A stampeding elephant, churning up water as it heads for safety, a bear clutching a fish in its mouth and an orca leaping through the streets of Beckenham are part of an apparent exodus of animals

from the suburb. Even old Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, the legendary water creature from Scotland, makes an appearance. Ms Webber said she was stuck inside during the floods and wanted to do something creative and a bit tongue-in-cheek. She started with Nessie and posted it on Facebook. The photo was such a hit that she started getting requests for particular animals. “I was just rushing to get them done – it is not even good photoshopping,” she said.

Rotary helps teacher succeed on water Ferrymead Rotarians had a strong inkling they were on to a good thing when Ryan Pearce approached them for support to get to the waka ama (outrigger canoeing) world championships. Club member Barbara Crooks writes about how it worked out THE 34-year-old South Brighton School teacher was part of a para-six which paddled to a silver medal at the World Distance Waka Ama Championships in Tahiti a couple of weeks ago. Pearce, who has used a brace on his right leg since spinal surgery eight years ago, had been paddling for just 12 months before making the New Zealand team. To get to Tahiti he – and each of his fellow paddlers –had to raise $4000 in three months since the team was named in March. His personal and professional attributes impressed Ferrymead Rotary members so much they readily agreed. And while they thought their contribution modest, Ryan pointed out that they had paid his Christchurch

to Auckland airfare – without which he wouldn’t have made the plane to Tahiti. After his selection was confirmed in March, he had to

fund a medical examination, and flights, food and accommodation for three training camps (in Napier, Auckland and Tauranga) and the world champs in Tahiti.

As he says, there are no free rides for truly amateur sports in New Zealand. His waka success further reflected Pearce’s resolve since

complications with a 2009 operation to remove a varicose vein on his spinal cord left him with no feeling from the waist down. A month later, thanks to his intensive rehabilitation efforts, he was walking with the help of a stick on his wedding day. Two years later, the remnant of the vein forced another operation, six weeks in hospital, and back to work on physio in a wheelchair. The next year, he tackled the 2.8km harbour crossing swim in Auckland, dragging himself across almost entirely with his arms. He has done four more distance swims since. But he believes he trained harder for waka than his swims because he didn’t want to let his mates down. He’s also quick to point out that, while one of the seven paddlers did not get a start in Tahiti, the performance was very much a team effort. Pearce sees “paddling in some capacity” as very much a part of his immediate sporting future. He believes he’s best suited to longer distances, which opens the way for him to bring his swimming, paddling and perhaps other endurance talents together.

News Addington retirement village with cafe, creche and animals A RETIREMENT village being built in Addington will have a public cafe, creche, community centre, health hub and even animals. Park Lane Retirement Village will feature Living Well – a new concept designed to create community connections and empower retirees. Arvida Group chief executive Bill McDonald said Living Well would be a public community precinct. “Living Well Park Lane will include a community centre for both the public and residents, complete with a cafe that sources produce from the village’s communal gardens, a community creche, a health club and animals including chickens and lambs,” Mr McDonald said. “Traditionally retirement villages are a gated community – here the community is warmly welcomed to be part of life at Park Lane.” Mr McDonald said Christchurch was the perfect place to launch Living Well because of the innovative developments happening with the rebuild. He hoped to roll it out across other Arvida retirement villages,

he said. Park Lane would use solar energy to power the main buildings, and would also offer electric cars for residents to use.

Apartments at the new Park Lane Retirement Village are now on sale, and the majority are expected to be completed and ready for tenants in March.

A GROUP of Riccarton business women raised more than $5000 for family violence support group Aviva. The Riccarton Venus Businesswomen’s Networking Group held a fundraiser on July 2 with the proceeds going directly to Aviva families. “It’s amazing to see what you can achieve when you have businesswomen supporting and encouraging each other and creating these kinds of collaborations, and a perfect fit in giving back to the community,” regional South Island Venus manager Maree Bryant said. The group fundraised by selling Safelets, a bracelet designed to help vulnerable people feel safe. Safelet has just been launched in New Zealand by Sharron Jones. After an accident while living alone, she searched for a personal safety option for herself and on discovering Safelet wanted to share the benefits of the product with the rest of New Zealand.

Safelet is an “on the go” personal safety alarm bracelet that allows the wearer to be connected and protected by friends and family. With the push of a button they can alert their guardians and emergency services to their whereabouts and that they need help. When the lucky winner of a Safelet, Diane Moore decided to regift it back to Aviva it really was a celebration of women wanting to give back. Aviva helps individuals and families to become – and stay – free of violence. They work with children, women, and men, giving each person the support they need, when they need it, to become safe and live free of the effects of family and sexual violence. Aviva Families is delighted to receive the support to be able to offer their vulnerable families this additional tool to help keep them safe.

Enrolling now for 2018 Rebuild Update from the Principal Kia ora koutou. Talofa. Kia Orana. Malo e lelei. Bula. Fakaalofaatu. Namaste and Kumusta. Greetings to our Community. I am very pleased to inform our community of two important decisions regarding our rebuild process. The school’s master-planning designers have been announced. This is the firm Architectus and we are very positive about this. Architectus has completed many school rebuilds and other major projects, including in Christchurch the Knowledge Centre (the Central Library) and the Bus Exchange. The lead person for our rebuild at Architectus is Carsten Auer. Carsten leads the Christchurch Architectus team. He is a Redcliffs resident and is committed to the concepts of community and inclusion which came through strongly in Architectus's submission. In Term 2, 2019 Linwood College will shift off-site for the duration of our rebuild to what will then be the former Avonside Girls’ High site. The site will be available as AGHS (and Shirley BHS) will be on their new site, formerly QE2 Park. This is a very good step for us, for while it has its own processes to work through, there are three major positives: 1. LC students and staff will not experience the difficult period of rebuild disruption. The time and energy that otherwise would have gone to ensuring learning was not affected can now be used more positively. 2.The LC demolition and building processes start with an unoccupied site and so can operate in a single stage. This means that a year comes off the rebuild timeline so the timeline we are looking at now is 18 months to two years. 3.With this considerable timesaving and there being no need for relocatables to shift us around in, there is a financial saving of approximately $1 million. This money does not leave the budget so is used to enhance what we will be getting. The Ministry of Education will ensure that LC has all the support that we need during our temporary relocation, including a transport plan for our students to the new site. We will be exploring bussing options to get our

students there. The MoE appoints a relocation manager and employs specialist movers skilled at shifting a school, everything from basketballs to hydrochloric acid. The AGHS site is safe. The buildings are mainly relocatable classrooms. AGHS has operated very successfully in them with a full academic and social curriculum. About half of the relocatables were brought in postearthquake so they are modern and warm. In fact, they are of better quality than our present LC classrooms. The site is close to us. I have timed my last two drives there: 3 min 50 sec and 4 min 10 sec, just 2.2 kilometres from the LC front gate to the AGHS front gate. While the rebuild of Linwood College is well overdue, we are also aware that the demolition of the old school will bring mixed feelings for some. And this makes sense as a school’s physical fabric contains many memories and key moments in people’s lives. How we close and honour this chapter in our school’s history, while we open another, is important to us and already is being given due attention. Nga mihi nui to our community as the positive activity of the year continues. I am always keen to meet people if any member of the community wishes to talk to me about anything. My door is open. Richard Edmundson Tumuaki-Principal

Major Production 2017 ‘Wolfstock’ The moon is high and all is quiet. Excitement is rising. The night is still. This night, 2nd August will be the opening night of Linwood College’s 2017 major production ‘Wolfstock’. This is a maverick musical written by Mary McMahan with music by Donald Woodward. A ‘Grease’ ‘Teenwolf’ mash-up with eccentric characters, great one-liners and the odd motor bike - this fun story along with the compulsory dancing and singing has all the makings for a fun, family-friendly show. The new Performing Arts learning team of Sam Boyce da Cruz and Ben Russell are bringing life back to the Linwood College productions after a hiatus. The cast of this year’s production celebrates everything that is great about being part of a Year 7 - 13 school with cast and musicians involved spanning across all age groups, collaborating and working together to present this show.

The show will have a three night run from 1 - 3 August. Tickets will be available at the College’s Payment Office from Term 3. We look forward to seeing you there.

Community Connections

Students from Linwood North Primary School visited during Linwood College’s Taster Afternoon this month. They were treated to a scene from the upcoming Linwood College musical WOLFSTOCK as well as engaging science experiments.

Heathcote Valley School students investigate science during their lesson with Helen Mora, Head of the Science Department. Science, mathematics and debating lessons taught at the College to local primary school students are strengthening ties with the community.

worked exceptionally hard during this time to get water and drainage working again for many people. A lot of households had damage to their hot water cylinders and Whitehead’s were replacing around 20 cylinders per week. The business has continued to grow steadily since then as the rebuild gained momentum, with Whiteheads Plumbing and Gas Ltd being the preferred Plumbing, Gasfitting and Drainlaying company for many builders of high spec architecturally designed homes. The company has also branched out into light commercial work including new schools, shopping centres and retirement villages.

experiences, interactions and play at Marshlands Nest

Roslyn Eason, fully trained and experienced early childhood teacher, owns and operates Marshlands Nest Early Learning Centre which is an intimate centre with a maximum of 25 children. Roslyn says “Our goal is to create a setting where self-esteem, love, learning and respect for others is prominent and where every child leaves each day feeling secure and loved in their special environment. At Marshlands Nest they create a most positive environment for children so they can learn through all experiences and interactions but most importantly through play.

This have a mixed licence which means children of different ages play and interact with each other. It allows siblings to be together and gives solo children a chance to be part of a larger family. It also means children do not need to transition between rooms so can stay with the same teachers and children. Marshlands Nest does recognize the need for age specific learning and a portion of each day is spent in ‘nest times” learning with others of the same age. The team at Marshland Nest would love to have you as part of their family, please feel free to drop in or give them a call.

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or could it be mainly my muscles?


he team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients visit complaining of pain in one or both hips. Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

Back hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing. At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program designed to mobilize and stretch the hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients. In many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. In very few treatments the client will know if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit
