Vandals target parked cars BY GABRIELLE STUART Cashmere, Somerfield and St Martins residents are fed up with repeated vandalism to their cars. Residents have reported car windows and lights smashed, wing mirrors broken and vehicles keyed nearly every weekend in the past month. Most of the vandalism has happened in the early hours of Saturday or Sunday mornings, while the cars have been parked on the street. Over the past six months, St Martins Rd resident Amy McDaid has had her car keyed three times, her tail lights smashed and, most recently, a wing mirror broken. “I’m now driving a car which

looks like a munted can, because there’s no way I can afford to fix all of the damage which has been done,” she said. She believed vandals were targeting the community because they believed it was a “rich area”. But she said there were a lot of single parents in the area and families living “just above the breadline”. She has young children, and her husband works as a musician. Although she had insurance, she said the excess was several hundred dollars. “I had to spend half a day ringing wreckers’ yards to find a mirror because I couldn’t afford to get one new, and it affected my grocery bill that week.” •Turn to page 2

Vandals target parked cars

•From page 1 She reported the vandalism to the police and said they were “awesome”, but couldn’t do much without any evidence to identify the vandals. “I asked for some sort of funding for cameras in the area, because it happens so regularly. If young people know that they’re possibly on camera think it will discourage them.” Senior Sergeant Philip Dean said that cameras were an option if a street was being regularly targeted. He said that without evidence or some line of inquiry there was not much chance of finding the person responsible. But he said that would be more likely the more incidents were reported. He recommended that residents park their cars near street lights or off the street if possible, and report any suspicious activity. Residents have reported vandalism of their vehicles on St Martins Rd, Frankleigh St, Cashmere Rd, Tainui St, Darley St and Rose St. Christchurch South Community Watch chairman David Scott said the group had not had any special taskings from police about the incidents, but had heard about a “spate of vandalism” in the Cashmere Rd area. The group patrols the area from Woolston to Halswell every weekend, and he said it was difficult to monitor such a large area. “Our area is one of the biggest in Christchurch and we only have one vehicle. We just can’t be everywhere.”

Shaking upsets residents

Demolition of the Z Woolston service station is shaking the whole neighbourhood, residents say. The service station on Ferry Rd is being demolished and rebuilt, which involves digging up and replacing the underground tanks. Matlock St resident Lawrence Wootton said the demolition felt “like a massive earthquake going through the house”. Only the immediate neighbours were notified, and Mr Wootton said he had no idea what was going on or how long the major demolition would take. He said cracks were appearing in the walls of his house, which was recently renovated, and he believed they were caused by the demolition. Mr Wootton is paralysed, and said the earthquakes had been particularly frightening because he had felt helpless. If he had been informed about the demolition, he said he would have arranged to be out of the house while it was going ahead. “It’s really traumatic for me after being through what I have been through.” Fellow Matlock St resident Ray Platt said he was not notified either. “I would like to know what was going on there and how much longer it will last, because it’s like having earthquakes all the time. The whole house shakes every so often, and it makes you wonder what sort of damage it’s doing.” Z Energy corporate communica-

PROBLEM SITE: The demolition and rebuild of Z Woolston on Ferry Rd is causing problems for residents in the area, who say the shaking is causing cracks in the walls of their homes. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN tions adviser Julie Malcolm said the immediate neighbours had been informed about the demolition. But she said the company had underestimated the impact of the work. “We realise we might not have gone as far afield as we should have.” She said that was partly due to the nature of the land in that area.

Pupils at Cathedral Grammar School have devoured tubs of ice cream for fundraising. As part of the Ronald McDonald House South Island ‘Cream it for kids’ fundraiser, pupils helped to raise funds for the charity by purchasing a 100ml tub of Tip Top’s vanilla ice cream. The school’s board of senior students, which manages fundraising events, decided to take part in the event for the learning experience and as an opportunity to contribute to the community. Cathedral Grammar School head girl and BOSS committee member, Amber Spurway, said the fundraiser was a great way for the senior pupils to show leadership by taking charge of organising of the event. “We like to work closely with Ronald McDonald House South Island because our students understand what they do for families and we think it’s important to support them,” said Amber.

Student aims to be builder Building fences isn’t typical academic study, but for Hillmorton High School student Josh Vallance it has set him up to follow his chosen career. The year 13 student is one of six technology students who will leave school this year. He hopes to become a builder, working for a company building high-end rural homes. During his time at Hillmorton he has built chairs, a console table, coffee table, a fence and a deck, as well as engineering a 50cc go-kart and designing and building an American-styled chopper. His father, Tony Vallance said the hidden talents of students were nurtured at the school, with innovative, creative and practical projects. “The students learn real-life skills and develop into potential top-class employable tradespeople who are enthusiastic about their work and take pride in their accomplishments.” Fellow student Brandon Miekle would like to build race cars. The school has specialist automotive engineering, mechanical engineering, carpentry and multi-material workshops, and he used all his skills when building a trike with a moped engine.

PROJECTS: Year 13 Hillmorton High School students Josh Vallance, Egan Brown, Brandon Miekle, Caleb Kendrew, Marc Woolley, Kiel Bowman will leave school with experiences on building and engineering. He stripped the moped, made modifications, fabricated a go-kart frame and steering, and grafted the moped rear end. Egan Brown balanced his study of engineering with chemistry, mathematics with statistics and music, and plans to study mechanical engineering at CPIT next year.

Engineering teacher Patrick Neal said the students had many reasons for taking the courses. “Many of these young men are aiming for a career in the trades and should feel confident on the job site, knowing they have had some excellent real-world experiences while

studying at school. Others have chosen technical courses purely because of interest. Some parents have said they encourage their child to do a technical course to give them a well-rounded education.” He said the department wished the students the best of luck in their future careers.

Class of 2014 – Young people following different pathways

e-learning set to start

Our teachers are currently planning for a new approach to learning in 2015 when Year 9 students will use Chromebooks in their daily lessons. The focus of this new pedagogy is “learn, create, share” and is based on the very successful model operating in a cluster of Auckland schools known as “Manaiakalani” – the Hook from Heaven. We are committed to enabling local, global and digital citizenship for all our learners and their families. With support from the Ministry of Education for the local project, known as Ko te tihi o te Matauranga, we are working with the Greater Christchurch Schools’ Network (GCSN) and Core Education to prepare for this e-learning approach. With ultra-fast broadband, Network for Learning, (N4L) and an effective campus Wifi network, we will be able to access cloud-based resources to deliver 21st century learning opportunities. This will ensure that every learner is fully prepared to make a positive contribution to his or her society.

Basketballers move up to the national competition Basketball is one of the most popular sports played at Catholic Cathedral College, and with teams at every level there is a healthy competition to be selected for the top boys’ and girls’ teams. This year our Senior Boys were invited to compete in the National Championships after their success at the South Island competition. As they are a young side, we look forward to their return to this competition in 2015.

Fenella Bowater left us in August to become an AFS student in Brussels. Her school is Athenee Royal Crommelynck, a short tram ride from her host family’s home. The big difference for Fenealla in this new school is that there are no laptops, computers or data projectors used – only blackboards and overFenella Bowater head projectors. Fenella is studying English, Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography, History and French. She is no stranger to travel as she has represented New Zealand at board surfing championships in recent years. On her return to New Zealand Fenella plans to study film at Canterbury University. Robert Falcasantos is currently studying in Le Mans, France after leaving Catholic Cathedral College during his Year 13 year. Robert achieved NCEA L2 with Excellence in 2013, as well as a Scholarship in Media Studies, and has

elected to spend 12 months in France on an exchange. Robert is a self-motivated young man who worked very hard to achieve this exchange, and studied French to prepare for the experience. On his return to New Zealand next year Robert Falcasantos he intends to study at university. Jaka Payot started here as a Year 9 student and is now in Year 13. Jaka has been part of a new programme called “Vocational Pathways”. This means that he studies at school three days a week, and every Thursday and Friday studies Electrical Engineering at Jaka Payot CPIT. There are

18 students on this course from a range of secondary schools. Jaka loves this course because he learns many things that interest him, and he plans to continue at CPIT next year to further his qualifications. Daniel Shute started here in Year 9, and has a passion for performing arts. He has performed in each College musical production since then, often having the lead role in shows such as Bugsy Malone and Little Shop of Horrors. Daniel has been a dedicatDaniel Shute ed Drama student and has entered Scholarship Drama in 2014. He has recently been accepted into the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art and will complete a Bachelor of Performing Arts. After graduating from NASDA Daniel hopes to work in musical theatre and work at the Court Theatre initially.

It incorporates aspects of sustainability and global citizenship. The competition states that people must be involved, the profits raised come back to the school for distribution to needy causes, and projects must involve sustainable products. The students have worked in their lunch breaks to construct coffee tables using timber recycled from pallets. This is an extension activity for students who want to identify a need in the community and to work together to find a solution.

World Enterprise Challenge turns tables on pallets

Gala Day – November 29 Both Religious Orders that founded Catholic education on this site have strong connections to Missionary work. Both the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions and the Marist Brothers work to spread the Good News of Jesus around the world. This year our Mission focus is to support the work of the Marist Brothers in Samoa. On Saturday, November 29, we will hold a Gala Day to raise money for these missions. We are planning to take a group of students to Samoa next year as an immersion experience so that they can experience solidarity with their neighbours and to undertake service work in this context.

Wicked summer-ween sizzle

School pool to open BY KYLE KNOWLES

LET’S PARTY: About 150 people attended the Somerfield summer-ween sizzle last Friday as part of neighbourhood week. SpreydonHeathcote Community Board members Helene Mautner, Rik Tindall and Karolin Potter attended the event, as well as city councillor Tim Scandrett and Labour MP Ruth Dyson. The event had a bouncy castle, prizes, lolly scrambles and Ashy Batchelor sang and played guitar for the crowd. Somerfield Residents Association chairwoman Julie Tobbell said it was very successful in between the thunder, lightning, hail and finally sun.

Two $20,000 grants have been approved to help open the Linwood Avenue School pool over summer. The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board and the Canterbury Community Trust last week approved the grants for Rawhiti Community Sports to open the pool through the summer holidays and charge an entry fee of only $1. The group was seeking $45,000 to operate the pool over summer as well as weekends but now the group has got close to the target they will still push ahead with the project. Rawhiti Community Sports chairman Peter Burley said getting a second pool open after North New Brighton was open last year was easier than starting from scratch and this was a positive for the community. He said this was not a “one-hit wonder” and they would open the pool for as long as there was not a new permanent pool in the east. Mr Burley said because the cost of travel and entry fees made it

hard for residents in the east to get to a pool over summer they would try to continue to keep the pools going. Community board chairwoman Sara Templeton said having a pool in the Linwood area was mentioned to her a lot by locals. She said: “It is difficult for families in this area to access pools over the summer period due to cost and travel barriers and this pool will fill a long standing gap and I know it will be well used by the wider community”. The Linwood Ave pool will add to North New Brighton School’s pool which was open last summer with an entry fee of $1 as well. The North New Brighton pool is again open this year with new programmes and initiatives. The pool was opened last year with help from outside funding and was in response to the limited swimming facilities in east Christchurch. The closest public pool to Linwood and New Brighton since the loss of QE II is Aquagym in Cashel St.

Elizabeth has had weekly mentoring sessions with her tutor, who is based in the North Island. She says the mentoring has worked really well “because english at scholarship level is very much discussion based so the syllabus lends itself to this type of learning”. Elizabeth plans to attend Canterbury University next year and major in english as well as completing a law degree.

HEALTH

Give your body a tune-up More fresh fruit, water and walks will help shift the kilos before beach weather arrives, writes Jane Logie Summer salads will soon be arriving on the dinner table, substituting winter vegetables and soups. We often want to look our best for the summer holidays, so spring is a time to give the body a break from all the rich foods and beverages we have been eating over the colder months. Perhaps you may want to shed a kilo or two. Summer frocks and summer parties lie ahead for some, when the Kiwi barbecue comes out, friends and family start to gather more frequently for those special occasions, or maybe you just want to get out your bikini for a dip in the sea. The fastest way to shift a few kilos can be to have a rest from eating too many treats that sometimes feel so difficult to avoid. Detoxing for spring can mean adjusting your diet and lifestyle slightly for a period of time before the summer party invitations start to arrive. A few signs and symptoms may already be present, letting you know your body needs a break from the indulgences of winter.

KEEP IT SIMPLE: Going for a brisk daily walk for 20 to 40minutes is an easy way to shift a few kilos. Tiredness, fatigue, insomnia, sore red eyes, indigestion, inflammation, hormonal imbalances, allergies, skin conditions, sluggish metabolism, headaches, constipation, high cholesterol, weight issues, cellulite, inability to concentrate, can all be related to congested detoxification pathways within the body. How can you regain a shiny glossy appearance and rid your skin of that dull, pimply, blotchy, ragged look? For some, it may be a short simple process; for others, it may be a longer road to a clear complexion, shining hair and endless energy.

Tips The body is hard at work detoxifying every day for us. So why not try to support this process to ensure that you get the benefits you want for the summer ahead? • Water, water, and lots of it. Aim for about four to six glasses a day to help the urinary system. • Have alcohol-free days. Sunday and Monday could be a start. Three to four alcohol-free days are recommended to give the body a break from toxins. As alcohol is considered a major toxin, this period will give the liver a break and let it focus on detoxing other substances within the body

that need to be broken down and excreted. • Reduce refined sugar, such as sweet drinks, cakes, biscuits and lollies, to give the digestive system a chance to rebalance itself. • Reach for the fruit, one to two serves a day is required, providing important nutrients in supporting the detox pathways. • Increase the amount of fresh vegetables and salads in the daily diet to help the digestive system. • Increase cultured yoghurts. Natural and plain is best, and additional lean protein to aid the detoxification pathways. • Increasing wholegrains (oats

especially) where required and reducing refined flour products is important to help the elimination pathways. • Adding onions and garlic into your daily cooking can also aid in the detoxification process. • Exercise where and when you can. It may not be necessarily hitting the gym every day, but merely going for a brisk daily walk for 20min to 40min is all that is required. • Reduce your daily coffee consumption to one or none and replace with green or peppermint tea, and any of the broad range of herbal teas on offer in the supermarkets — they can all help to alkalinise the body. • Support your body where possible as it is an amazing piece of machinery and will do the rest of the work for you. Simply provide it with the important elements it needs to perform a more efficient job. Remember to eat natural nutritious foods for at least 60 to 80 per cent of the time. Good luck. We can’t be super humans in today’s world but applying a balanced approach and the “in moderation mantra”, may help to fend off those weaknesses for wanting to reach for the not-so-nutritious food items. • Jane Logie is a medicinal herbalist, clinical nutritionist and chef.

New collection creates elegance in natural fabrics

Renowned for its contemporary women’s fashion made from

all natural materials, JNBY New Zealand has introduced its most composed collection yet for Spring/Summer 2014-15.

J

NBY celebrates the elegance of women with its design-driven aesthetics and strong philosophy capturing the idea of beauty, comfort and style through the brand statement, “Just naturally be yourself ”. The new collection is in store now, and is showing minimalist, geometric lines, a myriad of textiles and a sportswear flair. A hint of romance comes via draped silk, and lightweight wool adds a modern elegance. Inspiration for design has come from vintage architecture, retro shapes, images and structures.

True

The sophistication of cool whites and creams are the key colour story for the season, highlighted with a jolt of cobalt blue. Hints of steel blue and washed rose beige add a different dimension, while bright yellow and orange notes accent the warm glow of summer.

The Architecture collection features neutral colour palettes with a strong sense of shapes and textures. The designs play with volume and shifting scales through the manipulation of fabrics and textures – a minimalist approach while creating sharp shapes and silhouettes.

The Vintage theme collection illuminates the artistry of JNBY’s beautiful fabrics and textiles with feminine details and a soft colour palette. Nostalgia has never looked so modern and so good. Visit their website at www.jnby.co.nz to see the spring/summer collection, and call into their store to enjoy the unique styles and excellent service. JNBY is located in the centre of Merivale, on the corner of Aikmens and Papanui roads.

BY KYLE KNOWLES

A youngest ever national champion was crowned last week and it was only his first season in the sport. The National Offroad Racing Championship finals were held at West Melton over Labour Weekend with spills, thrills and a new champion found. Owen Chang, a 27-year-old mechanic who grew up in Aranui is now the youngest off-road racing national champion even though this was the first year he had ever raced. Chang said he was leading his class going into the weekend and was confident of winning that title but he never thought he would walk away as the national champion. “It was unreal and hard to believe really. There were so many fast, big cars and people that have been doing it for so long and I was only in my first season,” he said. Chang won three races in his car class as well as another podium. That third place finish came after he nearly rolled his GT Radial Ford Falcon at one point in a race. That put him at the back of that race after he was being pushed around by another car and hit a tyre. He said after that incident he “seen the red mist” and tried far

Dust was being flung up and visibility was poor leaving officials no choice but to halt the race early. Chang said Sunday was quite scary because of the dust. He said there were “a lot of accidents” and the organisers absolutely did the right thing by cutting the race early. Owen’s father Bryan Chang said he was one very proud dad and

Avon Rowing Club past president John Wylie said Mr Young had been club captain when he joined 60 years ago. “He was a quiet, unassuming guy, very much involved with the club all his life, as were the whole Young family,” Mr Wylie said. “He never married and the club was very much his life.” Mr Wylie said Mr Young was “one of those unsung heroes” that sports clubs have. “He introduced a lot of us to the club, who are still associated.” Mr Young lived in the house his family had when he was born, at 30 Alexander St

in Avonside, for 82 years before moving into the Bishop Selwyn Lifecare Centre eight years ago due to ill health. Mr Young’s niece Louise Blatchford said he had been very attached to the house. “He had a beautiful garden out the back where he used to grow lots of lilies and carnations and had a very good vegetable garden and grew grapes and things.” Mrs Blatchford said a neighbour of his, David Henry, had lived next door to him for 60 or 70 years and died six months before Mr Young. Throughout Mr Young’s life he never held a passport or driver’s license, preferring to get around by bicycle. An aeroplane mechanic during World War 2, he worked at military bases around New Zealand. After the war he became a fitter and turner and worked at a foundry in Wainoni for many years. He was also a member of the Shirley Rugby League Football Club.

Booster seat

Did you know the law says that you must use a car seat for your child?

W

hen children travel in vehicles, car seats are the best way to protect them. Keeping your child in their car seat with its harness system as long as possible is best. Once they grow out of the car seat, they need to move to a booster seat. • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. • Never use the booster seat with only a lap belt. • Place the booster seat in the back – it’s safer. • Avoid the front seat unless all other seating positions are being used. If you have to use the front seat, make sure it is as far back as possible. They must use a booster seat until they are around 148 centimetres tall. Ask for advice from Plunket Car Seat Service, 5 Twigger Street, Christchurch. Phone 379 9266, or email cantycarseats@plunket.org.nz.

ver noticed how young children learn a new language easily? At the International School of Music, they teach in the same way children learn a language; initially by listening, singing, then playing. The school specialises in teaching music to children in a fun, engaging manner, with children’s classes involving musicianship skills like singing, percussion, movement to music, appreciation and piano tuition. Over 300 students attend these popular preschool and group piano classes every week. Beginner students accepted are

Careless translation bites chicken exporter

By Jack May

he people who write advertising slogans are clever with words. They can make a simple frozen chicken hugely appealing. A clever wordsmith named Ed McCabe was paid a substantial fee to write these ten words, “It takes a strong man to make a tender chicken”. This slogan for Perdue Chickens helped sell 15 million frozen chickens through American supermarkets in one year. Yes, the chickens were top quality meat. But the Perdue export department got it wrong. They translated the slogan into Spanish as “It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate”. Hispanic and Mexican cooks were not amused.

languages are valuable people in exporting, document translating and book publishing. “We show all our writing students how to get their articles, stories, poems or instruction books published,” says Brian Morris, principal at New Zealand Institute of Business Studies. “They also get thoroughly proofread before being released.” If interested in writing or proofreading work at home, phone 0800 801 994 and ask for the free report #805 “When You Have A Passion For Story Telling”. Whether your topic is food, electronics, cars, cooking, gardening, sport or business, there is satisfaction in getting your book written and published.

Three points to ponder • Clever writers can earn substantial fees. • Translating English into other languages has traps for the unwary. • Proofreaders who understand two

Get weaving with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa

T

e Wānanga o Aotearoa will be offering a range of weaving classes in 2015, an introductory 18week course, the Certificate in Māori Visual Arts and a 36-week Diploma in Māori Art - Toi Paematua. Emma Mclean is a current student of the Diploma. Two years ago Emma’s friend invited her to an exhibition run by Te Wānanga o Aotearoa Raranga (weaving) students. Emma loved what she saw so much she decided to ‘give it a go’. Emma said the most rewarding part of the course for her was stepping out of her ‘comfort zone’ and gaining ‘confidence’ presenting her work. “The tutors are awesome; they are always available to help, they give great feedback and bring so much knowledge and experience.”

Alan Spicer, another member of the Diploma class, says the course has been great for his selfesteem. “As a male, I have been encouraged and included. I enjoy the marae stays and I love the support offered by the tutors. It has been a great honour to study among a great group of weavers!”

New opportunities

T

for learning

he belief at Hagley College is that everyone should have the opportunity to learn and that these opportunities should be available throughout life. This is what the college’s After 3 programme creates: new opportunities for learning. These programmes are at a secondary learning level but with a difference. ‘‘Personalised learning is at the centre of how we work at Hagley,’’ says deputy principal Mike Fowler. ‘‘We know that students have many different reasons for engaging in study. Teachers in each After 3 course assist students to identify their personal goals to enhance the relevance of the learning to their particular needs. ‘‘Our After 3 courses build the skills and understandings needed to transition successfully into Senior College NCEA

programmes at Hagley, vocational pathways, or in some cases tertiary level programmes. Our After 3 teachers support students to identify and move in the direction they have identified as important.’’ After 3 gives adult and senior students the opportunity to study a wide range of Hagley’s courses away from their daytime commitments. Most courses run from early evening during the week and, in some cases,

in the weekend. ‘‘We offer over 50 courses in the faculties of art and media, community studies, English, English language learning, food and hospitality, health studies, languages, mathematics, performing arts and practical design (textiles and technology courses),’’ Fowlers says. ‘‘More than 750 students each year make the decision to study in After 3. We look forward to you making your own success story at Hagley in 2015.’’

Making dreams a reality

A

li Phillips has always known what her dream job would be. Through Aoraki Polytechnic she has been able to take the first steps along the path to making this a reality. Studying at Aoraki’s Christchurch campus, Ali is currently completing her second year of hairdressing, a Certificate in Professional Hairdressing, Level Three. “I have always wanted to be a hairdresser since I was little - it has been my passion for many years,” says Ali. “I had grown up doing hair, cutting my Barbie doll’s hair and generally fascinated with hairdressing.” With no experience in the industry, and having to balance study with the needs of her family as well, 26-year-old Ali found the perfect fit at Aoraki. “I’d been looking for a hairdressing course for some time and Aoraki seemed to suit my needs.” The Level Three full-time course runs over 34 weeks. It is designed to provide students with all the skills needed to work in a commercial salon environment, including working with clients to advance their cutting, consultation, colouring and styling techniques.

“This year and last year have both been very challenging and equally rewarding,” says Ali. “I have enjoyed every minute of it and love working with the people that have come through the course so far.” For Ali the most rewarding part of her study has been an increase in her confidence levels and learning how to interact with the general public on a professional level. Aoraki Polytechnic’s tutors are involved and respected in the industry, and provide invaluable links for students to the industry itself. Ali is creating a portfolio of her work, which will play an important role when seeking an apprenticeship next year to complete her Year Three qualification. Students are encouraged to aim high, with Ali intending to follow her apprenticeship with a full time hairdressing position. “My long term ambition is to open my own salon,” says Ali. Qualifications in hairdressing are available at Aoraki Polytechnic’s Timaru, Dunedin and Christchurch campuses. Visit www.aoraki.ac.nz or call 0800 426 725 for more information on getting your career underway.

ARTISTIC ENERGY By Larissa Mcmillan

W

hen a friend recommended Jonathan Milne’s book ‘Go! The Art of Change’ to Anne Bannock, she looked into studying at The Learning Connexion the school of art and creativity, based in Wellington which Jonathan founded and directs. She realised that its study-fromhome part-time option suited her down to a tee. “My life-long ambition was to go to an art school and to be part of the creative energy that goes with it.” “Enter a new world of understanding modern art and new ideas,” Anne said. Situated in picturesque Ngatimoti, artist Anne Bannock has made a studio retreat that caters to her creativity and to the public. “My studio is a converted cow shed which serves as my studio and gallery, and is open to the public in the summer.” The Advanced Diploma programme has been the best programme of study for Anne to follow, allowing her to discover new techniques and skills to add to her extensive creative repertoire. “Everyone I have met has been helpful, especially the tutors. I have met some students when I attended a block class and now I follow their progress via the magic of the workroom, TLC’s online student forum.” If you’d like to enquire about studying at The Learning Connexion School of Art and Creativity, call us on 0800 278 769, or email us at admissions@tlc.ac.nz.

L

earning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe workplace, 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 workplaces 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

The majority of injuries occur outside of the workplace; 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 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.

A delight for the chef of the family with a modern five-burner gas cooktop, plentiful storage options, in-floor heating, granite bench tops and breakfast bar. Brilliantly orientated for all-day sun, security and privacy, the home’s inherent warmth is completed by a living flame gas fire, heat pump and heat transfer system, perfect for those chilly nights. Contemporary design and superb flow are paramount throughout the spacious 209-square-metre footprint. The fabulous floor plan set on a 578m2 site offers a variety of options to accommodate family or guests, comprising three relaxing double bedrooms, master bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe, two study alcoves and a fabulous outdoor man cave or studio. The modern bathrooms enjoy in-floor heating and high pressure showers with additional features in the main bathroom of a spa bath – perfect

for relaxing after a hard day’s work, and the bonus of solar water heating. Double internal access garage with additional off-street parking for two cars and a trailer. School zoning is excellent, with several private schools in the area and in zone for CBHS, Burnside High School, Cobham Intermediate and Fendalton Open Air Primary School. This much-loved family home has truly been treasured; the decision to sell is final. All the EQC repairs have been completed. You can have confidence in what you are buying. First to view will purchase. My vendor’s instructions are very clear, this property will be sold on auction day! Open Home dates: Saturday and Sunday, 1.15pm to 2pm. For an appointment to view, contact Debra Hakaraia of Smart Real Estate (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 027 562 0420 or 384 8600. Visit www.smartrealestate.co.nz.

DON’T TELL MOMMA Friday:

TRIZONE

Their first ever full length album – BE MINE TONIGHT – will be released on iTunes and via all good record stores on November 7th. As a special sneak peek into the fabulousness to be found on the album, three songs - Be Mine Tonight, Today Is Gonna Be Mine and the lead single Wake Up - are now available to stream on the Orchestra's website. Named after the classic song by Th' Dudes, the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra's album BE MINE TONIGHT pays homage to great songwriters and performers from the past 100 years of NZ music, from Princess Te Rangi Pai's 1907 lullaby Hine e Hine (the “Goodnight Kiwi song”) to Lorde's 2013 mega-hit Team. Wake Up is of course Aaradhna's hit single, and Today Is Gonna Be Mine comes from Dunedin legend David Kilgour. In addition to the outstanding set of recordings, the band's stage show is famous for madcap hilarity and spontaneous audience participation. Behind the hijinks is a finely-tuned musical group who have truly cemented their place on New Zealand's entertainment scene. The band will tour BE MINE TONIGHT around New Zealand this November and will be joined by regular guest-star Amanda Billing (Shortland Street's recently departed Sarah Potts), whose impressive vocal skills feature all over the album.
