Key projects confirmed Key infrastructure projects like the flyover across Main South Rd in Rolleston and Leeston’s stormwater system have been confirmed after the district’s Long Term Plan was approved. Other projects include roading improvements needed as a result of the Southern Motorway extension, additional road maintenance work, investment in new community facilities and parks, and Rolleston town centre projects including the development of a new library. Mayor Kelvin Coe said the dis-

trict council had aimed to strike a good balance between investing in key infrastructure such as roading and community facilities and keeping rates at an affordable level. “The feedback from the community has been that most residents are comfortable with the projects we have put forward for the future,” Mr Coe said. A total of 368 submissions were received on the draft Long-Term Plan and more than 100 submitters attended a hearing to present their submissions in person and Mr Coe

said the public participation had been pleasing. “I would like to thank everyone who made a submission or attended one of the consultation meetings. The submissions we received have provided the council with valuable information on the community’s views.” District-wide rates for water and wastewater were approved, while rates for community centres, halls and reserves were left as targeted, as had been signalled. The overall average rates increase

(including general and targeted rates) over the next 10 years is 4.4 per cent a year. For most properties the rate increase for 2015/16 is between three and seven per cent, with some properties also experiencing a rate decrease. As a result of the district-wide proposal for community centres, halls and recreation reserves not being adopted this year, there have been some changes to rating levels from what was proposed in the draft documents which went out for public consultation.

Caregiver accused of stealing money BY TOM DOUDNEY A Nurse Maude caregiver is to face the court for allegedly stealing money from an elderly Rolleston man with dementia. The woman was working parttime for Nurse Maude when the thefts are alleged to have taken place between December 2013 and January 2014. Senior Constable Glen Tweedie said the woman was visiting

the man, in his 80s, on a daily basis for one or two hours at a time. However, she had breached his trust by taking $3612 in the form of cash and groceries for herself. The man lived on a property with his son but in a separate unit. It was the son who had discovered the alleged theft when going through his father’s bank statements, Senior Constable Tweedie said. Nurse Maude general manger

marketing Sue Bramwell said the woman had resigned in February 2014 after the matter came to light. It was not normal practice for caregivers to have access to a patient’s Cashflow card. “We have very strict protocol regarding our support nurses and workers and anybody who goes into anybody’s home,” Ms Bramwell said. “On accepting her resignation we informed her we would

Senior Constable Tweedie said although police had responded immediately to the allegations, due to “the slow turning wheels of justice” the matter had only just reached the courts.

Lincoln HS hits the right note BY TOM DOUDNEY

Lincoln band Altero rocked the crowd and the judges at the Smokefreerockquest on Friday night, being named this year’s Canterbury winner. The band, comprised of drummer Bede Barrie, bassist Jared Whiting, guitarist Miceal Wilson and singer Min-Young Her, was one of 10 that took to the stage in front of 300 people at the Isaac Theatre Royal. The win has earned the year 13 students the chance to be selected for the national final at Auckland’s Raye Freedman Centre on September 11, as well as musical gear from associate sponsors NZ Rockshops. Her said it was a really nice surprise to win. “We were waiting for our band name to be called because we heard them say ‘Lincoln High School’ and we wanted to make sure it really was us. It was just really exciting.” The biggest show the band had played previously had been to an audience of probably only about 20 people so this had been a “huge jump.” “I thought we would all be intensely nervous and freaking out a little bit but it was such a good experience,” she said. “We all got on stage and it was like ‘oh man, it’s so much fun and I don’t even care if we win’. ” The band will now have to make a 15min long video of them playing music, which will be submitted to judges who will

▌IN ▌ BRIEF Living room fire

A man has been described as lucky after an exploding glass window alerted him to a fire in his living room as he lay in bed on Friday morning. The man had earlier removed hot ash from the fire place of his Rakaia Terrace Rd home and left it in a bucket by the window. The ash appeared to have set a curtain on fire, which caused the glass to break. The man then got back out of bed and used a fire extinguisher to put it out. A Hororata firefighter said there were no working smoke alarms in the house and the man had been very lucky.

The Laboratory opens

Lincoln’s newest bar The Laboratory had an exclusive opening on Friday, followed by a full opening on Saturday. Owner Lisa Bennett said around 150 people had been in attendance while numbers on Saturday were hard to estimate but the bar had been packed all night. The Laboratory is open Tuesdays to Sundays, 11am until late.

Events funding CENTRE STAGE: Lincoln High School band Altero, from left, Bede Barrie, Jared Whiting, Miceál Wilson and Min-Young Her, won the Canterbury Smokefreerockquest on Friday night. Bede and Jared formed the band about three years ago but the current line-up was only finalised when Min-Young joined five months ago. Since then they have played a handful of gigs. They have cited the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kings of Leon, Tool and the Mars Volta as influences. Lincoln High School music teacher Darren Weber said he was thrilled for the band’s success.

select which bands from around the country will compete in the national final. Her said winning the Canterbury event was a stepping stone for the band’s future in terms of getting noticed and getting more gigs. It would be even better if they were selected for the final. They had about four finished songs but were working on a number of others.

“Each person is a fairly accomplished musician in their own right, really, and they have put it all together. I know Miceal and Bede and slightly more recently Jared have been playing together for a while and they listen to each other and really mould well as a group. Min has just added her vocals on top of that this year and it has made them the whole picture really.”

MacDonald brothers to test enduro skills in Romania

Tuesday June 30 2015

▌EVENT ▌

BY TOM DOUDNEY

Three West Melton brothers will do their father proud when they put their off-road motorcycle skills to the test in a remote Romanian mountain range next month. Twins Mitchell and Angus MacDonald, 17, and their brother Hamish, 16, will be competing against riders from 37 countries in the Red Bull Romaniacs enduro event. The boys’ talent has shone through while competing in both the South Island and the National Enduro Series this year. It was a clean sweep for the boys at the South Island level, with Angus taking first place, Hamish second and Mitchell third. In the National Enduro Series, Hamish upstaged his older brothers by finishing third overall and first in the open two-stroke class, while Angus managed ninth overall and third in the same class. That the three brothers should do so well in the sport is perhaps not as surprising as it first seems, when you take into account their father is Mark MacDonald, who was a multiple National Enduro title winner himself when he competed in the 1980s. Mark said he was proud of his sons’ success. “It’s great to see them all com-

Hamish said their father had been a big help in their enduro success and the boys had all looked up to him and his success while growing up. He said Romaniacs would be a tough event but he felt wellprepared for it. “I’ve done a lot of training so

I want to go over there and get a good result but I still want to enjoy myself and have a blast.” Angus and Mitchell acknowledged little brother Hamish had bragging rights at the moment with his recent success. Mitchell said his enduro performances were gradually improving after spending the best part of two years dealing with a foot injury which had since been operated on. “I was beating all my brothers [before the injury] and now they have done better than me so I’m trying to play catch-up at the moment.” The Romaniacs event will see

The ride includes everything from old Roman roads, wood-pulling lines, goat trails, unforgiving rivers and straight lines through forests and across mountain ranges. The boys will leave for Romania this weekend, with the event running from July 14-18. They have been preparing with Crossfit training at the gym, and practice rides at the Waimakariri River. • Grassroots sport, pages 16-17

Darfield’s Selwyn Gallery will open an exhibition of ceramic art from Canterbury University’s collection on Friday. The exhibition, Vessels of Knowledge, will run until the end of July. Much of the collection was purchased in the 1970s and 1980s and illustrates the rise of art teaching in the national school curriculum – a time when ceramics were extremely popular and teachers could specialise in art education in their third year. The works come from highlyregarded New Zealand potters including Len Castle, Doreen Blumhardt, Mirek Smisek, as well as the England-based practitioner Michael Cardew and the renowned Japanese potter Shoji Hamada. The gallery will be open daily, except Mondays, from 10am to 4pm for duration of the exhibition. A programme will be available on the gallery’s website www.selwyngallery.co.nz or from the gallery.

Soldiers of Selwyn

Celebrating those who died in World War 1 With SelWyn librarieS www.selwynlibrary.co.nz

Battling diseases while fighting World War 1 claimed the lives of about 18,000 New Zealand soldiers, while a further 41,000 were injured or fell ill. To honour those from Selwyn, a project was undertaken by volunteer historian Lynda Seaton on behalf of Selwyn Libraries to identify, research and record every soldier whose name was recorded on a World War 1 memorial in the district.To mark the centenary of the conflict, the Selwyn Times continues its weekly series, Soldiers of Selwyn. Rifleman James Stephen Hawkins James Stephen Hawkins was born at Christchurch on February 22, 1888, to Stephen and Lily Hawkins. He was working as a grocer’s assistant at Tai Tapu before enlisting on March 14, 1917, and being assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, J Company. In May, while in camp at Trentham, he became infested with lice and was hospitalised. He embarked for Devonport on June 12. Hawkins left England for France on October 23, joining the 4th Battalion, 3rd Rifle Brigade in the field on November 3 and was posted to C Company. He was killed in action on February 15, 1918, aged 34. He is buried in Oxford Rd Cemetery and remembered on the Tai Tapu War Memorial. James Edward McVeigh James Edward McVeigh was born at Lincoln on July 31, 1891, to Daniel and Julia McVeigh.

At the time of enlisting, on June 29, 1916, he had moved to Weston near Oamaru where he was farming. He had previous military experience with the 5th Mounted Regiment, the Otago Hussars. McVeigh was assigned to the 19th Reinforcements Specialist Machine-Gun Section and was promoted to Sergeant on November 8. He embarked for Devonport on November 15, 1916, arriving on January 29, 1917, and marching into Sling Camp the same day. Almost a month later he was taken on the strength at Grantham where he reverted to Lance Corporal. On June 30, he was promoted to Staff Sergeant while acting as an instructor at the Machine Gun Depot. On October 19, McVeigh left for France at which point he relinquished Staff Sergeant rank. He marched in to the base depot at Camiers on October 20 and was posted to No 5 Divisional Company Machine Gun Corps in the field where he reverted to Private. McVeigh was killed in action on January 9, 1918, aged 28. At that time, the front line lay close to Polygon Wood, extending for about one and a half miles from just beyond Cameron Covert in the south to Inder Ster Cabaret in the north. To supplement the machine gun defence, eight guns of the Divisional Company were taken

on November 19 to positions near Jetty Wood, where they were placed in two groups. They were to barrage forward of the front line, with one gun enfilading the enemy line in front of Polderhoek Château. Enemy aircraft were busy about Allied lines throughout January and February. McVeigh is buried at Aeroplane Cemetery, Ypres, and remembered on the Lincoln Roll of Honour. Sidney Bell Sidney Bell was born at Radcliffe on Trent, England, on March 17, 1872, to Samuel and Catherine Bell. He was an auctioneer’s assistant in 1891 and auctioneer’s clerk in 1911 before emigrating to New Zealand that year. In between he had served in the 1899-1902 Boer War as a trooper with the 39th Battalion, Imperial Yeomanry. Sidney was a labourer before enlisting on November 17, 1915, at Trentham. He was assigned to 10th Reinforcements, Canterbury Infantry Battalion, C Company, and embarked on March 4, 1916, bound initially for Suez and then on to France. He marched into Base depot at Etaples on April 24. After serving six months in France with the 2nd Battalion Canterbury Regiment he became ill and was sent to England by hospital ship on October 29. In December, he was diagnosed with type A paratyphoid fever, an enteric illness caused by one of the three serotypes of Salmonella enterica, probably contracted it in the unsanitary conditions of the trenches. Sidney was reviewed by a medical board at Codford on August 31, 1917, which discharged him to return to New Zealand, citing two ‘disabilities’ which would lead to him being classed as unfit: Over age and rheumatism. He had aggravated pain in his legs and back.

On his return to New Zealand he faced a final medical board and was finally discharged and granted a pension on January 5, 1918. Sidney died suddenly in Killinchy a few weeks after his return, aged 46. An inquest found that he had not been in good health since his return from the front. While on active service he had suffered from trench fever, shell shock, and rheumatics. On the day he died, he had complained of feeling unwell and while sitting in a chair in an orchard exclaimed, “lord, preserve me from such pain” before collapsing. He was buried in Killinchy Cemetery and is remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque as well as on the war memorial in front of St Mary’s Church in Radcliffe on Trent. Rifleman Thomas Hogg Thomas Hogg was born in Cork, Ireland, on June 18, 1884. He was working as a ploughman before enlisting on August 22, 1916, and was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade Reinforcements, G Company. He embarked for Devonport on March 3, 1917. At Codford, Hogg was attached to the 15th Company, 3rd Battalion Auckland Infantry. He left for France on May 28. On July 14, he suffered a gunshot wound to his left leg and was sent on to the No 3 Canadian General hospital at Boulogne. Following this, he was sent to the Convalescent Depot near the sea at Ecault and then to Trouville. Hogg returned to Base Depot at Etaples on August 31 and was back in the field on October 11, joining

2nd Battalion Auckland Infantry. He was again wounded in action on March 27, 1918, when the New Zealand Division was tasked with holding up the advance of the German troops towards Amiens, along the Ancre Valley. They faced four counter attacks that day. He died of his wounds. Hogg is buried in the Euston Road Cemetery, Colincamps, Somme, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Irwell Plaque, as well as the Dunsandel War Memorial. Robert Smith Robert Smith was born at Aylesbury on December 13, 1883, to Young and Mary Jane Smith. He was farming at Aylesbury before enlisting on October 6, 1916. He was a single man at the time but had two people dependant on him – his mother and sister. Smith was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, Reinforcements, G Company, and embarked for Devonport on March 14, 1917. On June 21, he left for France, joining the 4th Battalion, New Zealand Rifle Brigade and being attached to A company in the field on July 11. Smith suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his legs and an arm on October 12, during the disastrous attack at Passchendaele, and was admitted to 2nd Canadian Stationary Hospital at Outreau. He died of his wounds almost five months later on March 27, 1918, aged 34. Smith is buried in Boulogne Eastern Cemetery, France, and remembered on the Malvern County War Memorial.

Two bayonet charges cleared the immediate area, but the battalions were still exposed. To secure this flank, they attacked again at dusk and cleared the German positions at bayonet-point. Youngman is buried in the

Euston Rd Cemetery, Colincamps, Somme, and remembered on the Malvern County War Memorial. William Thomas Milliken William Thomas Milliken was born on May 7, 1894, to John and Elizabeth Milliken. He was working for his father at Springfield before enlisting on July 25, 1916. He had previous military experience having served four  years with the 1st Mounted Rifles, Canterbury Yeomanry Cavalry. Milliken was assigned to the 20th Reinforcements, New Zealand Mounted Rifles, and embarked for Suez on December 14, 1916. He was sent to the School of Instruction at Zeitoun on February 7, 1917, and re-joined his unit 10 days later at Moascar. He was then transferred to the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade on April 29 and posted to 1st Squadron in the field on May 2. Milliken was killed in action on March 28, 1918, aged 23. On that day the Mounted Rifles took part in the first raid on Amman which had begun the day before. The assault was renewed at 1pm but little headway was made. The Mounted Rifles tried twice during the day to advance, but at the end of day still occupied the line held the previous day. Milliken was the only brigade member killed during the day. He is buried in the Damascus Commonwealth War Cemetery, Syria, and remembered on the Springfield and Kowai Bush War Memorials.

Rifleman George Matthew Lyons George Matthew Lyons was born at Christchurch on February 3, 1878, to Matthew and Augustina Lyons. Before enlisting, on February 15, 1917, he was working as a farm manager at Akaroa but his last address was at West Melton. He reported that he had enteric typhoid fever in 1902, which may account for his later ill health. Lyons was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, 25th Reinforcements, G Company and embarked for Devonport on April 26. He left for France on August 15, joining the 4th Battalion, 3rdRifle Brigade and being posted to D company on September 16. On October 31, he was sent to No 7 General Hospital at St Omer with mumps. He re-joined his unit in the field on December 12. However, he was admitted to No 8 Stationary Hospital in the field on December 28, 1917, and then sent to No 1 Convalescent hospital at Boulogne. He left hospital in early January and re-joined his unit in the field on February 24. Lyons was again sent to hospital, this time with diarrhoea, on March 11. He was discharged to re-join his unit on March 23 but was killed in action, aged 40, on March 29, 1918. The enemy was holding about 1100m of the Hebuterne road at the time and the 4th Battalion was on the attack. Lyons is buried at Euston Rd Cemetery, Colincamps, Somme, and is remembered on the West Melton Roll of Honour.

Rifleman Frank Herbert Scott Frank Herbet Scott was born at Lyttelton on September 11, 1879, to George and Sarah Ann Scott, of Leeston.

He was working for the Patea Shipping Company as a labourer before enlisting on August 21, 1916. Scott was assigned to the New Zealand Rifle Brigade, 11th Reinforcements, 4th Battalion, H Company, and embarked for Devonport on December 7. He joined the 4th Battalion, 3rd Rifle Brigade at Codford on March 30 and left for France on May 27. However, on June 24, 1917, he was awarded seven days of field punishment No 2 for failing to salute an officer in the field. Scott was sent to the School of Instruction for a week from February 10, 1918. On return he was transferred to 4 Battalion/3rd Rifle Brigade and posted to A Company. He was at first reported to have gone missing on March 29 but this was later changed to ‘killed in action.’ He was 39 at the time. Scott is buried in the Euston Rd Cemetery, Colincamps, Somme, and remembered on the Ellesmere County War Memorial’s Leeston plaque. • Selwyn Libraries welcomes your feedback or any information you can provide regarding these soldiers.

Joyce Davey

OUR PEOPLE

Looking after community keeps For 30 years, Joyce Davey has been involved with more than a dozen volunteer and community groups in the Selwyn area, from the West Melton Garden Club to the Rolleston Newcomers Network and Selwyn Community Care Board. She spoke to Adele Redmond about her busy social calendar Joyce, you’ve been involved with just about every community group imaginable. It sounds like you’re the saint of West Melton. Lest the halo slip. Don’t make it all about me, will you? You were volunteering for the West Melton telephone directory as far back as 1988. What prompted you to get involved with that? My friend Elizabeth Mitchell started that. She was very good with the computer stuff and it was a way of connecting the people in the area back then. I just wanted to give her a hand. That’s what you do when your friends need help, you give them a hand don’t you? Then in 1996 you started up the West Melton Rugrats, a music group for pre-schoolers. That was really something special. It was only one day a week, but it was good. Lynette Hulston used to help me. I knew her be-

cause she and I went to the same church. She would play guitar and I would help by doing the actions for the little kids. It was wonderful. We shifted out to Rolleston after my husband had an aneurysm because we had stairs at the other place and he couldn’t handle them anymore. Then Lyn had an aneurysm. You know when you need to have a change. The ladies at the Hope Presbyterian Church didn’t want it to end, so we handed it over. It’s still going, but it’s called Mainly Music these days. How long have you been an organist at Hope Presbyterian Church?

2020

I lived in town and started playing the organ there when I was 15. I used to play piano too for weddings and funerals. I played for the Rolleston Singing Group too, which meets on the first and third Fridays of the month. How many people attend the Rolleston Newcomers Network group? The numbers have gone right down, down, down because there are so many other parenting groups and the like in the area,

but we still have more than 100 on our mailing list. We like to keep in touch with as many as we can. There are a lot of migrants in this area. Some of them are coming from England, some from other areas, but sometimes they can feel quite isolated and it’s nice to offer them that support. What did you learn about from writing your book, The Women of West Melton: Then and Now? Well you learn a lot of things writing a book. Mainly I learned

WELL DESERVED: Joyce Davey received a volunteer award from the Selwyn Central Community Board for her years of work. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN how hard things were back then. They used to walk so far – four or five miles – every day. I can’t imagine people in Rolleston walking for five miles each day now. It was just all work, work, work. The women had to start early in the day helping out with breakfast, or with the cows on the farm. If they wanted to do something different they had to plan it. If they wanted to go into town then that took an awful lot of planning.

▌READERS’ ▌ LETTERS

Joyce busy It was interesting going and meeting these people. One dear old lady was 89 – so you can imagine how old her sons were – and her boys would come in for morning tea and she had cake and sausage rolls, and this was just for morning tea. Farm wives are still doing that today, preparing these great spreads. Even now to work on a farm is not an easy life. How have you noticed the Rolleston area changing over the years? When we first came out here there was only one supermarket – now we have two. There’s a Warehouse as well. There used to be a lot of small shops, but the rate of building has been astronomical. There are a lot of new subdivisions popping up. Even in the outskirts it’s multiplying quickly, more and more so after the earthquakes when people starting moving out of the eastern suburbs. You received an award from the Selwyn Central Community Board for your volunteering efforts. How does it feel to be acknowledged for your work? If I look back over the years I’ve received a few volunteering awards, mostly from the council. They want to keep tabs on me. I don’t let it get to my head. Some people would let it get to their heads and they might stop volunteering, but I don’t let it stop me from doing what I’m doing. There is a lot to do out here and plenty of people who need recognition for that work. Everyone has a wee problem. I just want to give them all a hug. I give a lot of hugs. Can you give me a hug? Would you like one? The way I see it, we are all on Earth for a reason and that reason is to love one another. What are you doing now? Right now I’m writing a letter to my niece who lives in England, and my husband is in the other room doing a jigsaw puzzle. It’s a 1000-piece puzzle. I pop in and out to place down a few pieces. I like to keep busy. You’ve got to enjoy life, don’t you? • Selwyn Central Community Board Volunteer Awards, p19

In regards to your article about the black sooty mould on these oak trees in Rolleston (the Selwyn Times, June 23), half the trees in these streets look dead. Our main concern is that the height of these trees grows too and it will not be long before these trees will be blocking the sun off our property. Also, the root system in some parts of Overbury Crescent and Dryden St is lifting the paving on the footpaths and it will not be long before they start doing damage to the roads and getting into the drains. We have two trees on our property, one very close to our drive which I am very concerned about. Will the council replace our drive when the roots start cracking the concrete? The acorns these trees dropped are a bloody nuisance as school kids love throwing them all over the lawns and roads and have already caused damage to our mower catcher. If you look at some parts of Christchurch where these trees have been planted, the footpaths and roads are a mess and the houses are very shaded. What we want is for the council to remove these trees and we would be more than happy to replace the trees on our property at our expense with more suited trees like small flowering cherry trees or some sort of native tree. – Andrew and Mary Nash, Rolleston Mr Summers of Southbridge (the Selwyn Times, readers’ letters, June 10) can rest assured that at least one district councillor strongly disagrees with central government’s proposed model for our regional council. My fellow councillors and Mayor

HAVE YOUR SAY Do you have an opinion on a current issue you would like to share? Email your views to tom. doudney@starmedia.kiwi Kelvin Coe are well aware of my views as a 670-word email was sent to them all in summary of my thoughts. I appreciate that my views are shared by only a minority around that table and little content of that email made it to the district council submission on the Environment Canterbury review. Very briefly, here’s a summary of those views. The claimed disfunctionality of ECan was given as the reason for forcibly removing regional ratepayers’ rights to say what our rates should pay for. The real reason for the legislation, I believe, was the inability of certain people to access the ‘over-allocated’ groundwater in 2009-10. This, in turn, was caused by ECan staff and councillors using a precautionary approach in protecting our

water from further overuse and from more pollution of it by agricultural activities. Progress with water management has continued to be slow although the shock of undemocratic change has altered the organisation’s make-up and focus more towards corporate water needs and away from wider community concerns. Not fast enough for the Government, which continues to show distrust in Canterbury people by denying their democracy. Could it be possible that a governance model ensuring full representation for all Cantabrians might result in our water being protected from both overuse and pollution and in our rivers and streams once again becoming clean enough to swim in? Couldn’t this mean that our vital agricultural industry would adapt, as it is so effective at doing, by producing goods which would feed a less volatile market and would not threaten the precious water which is so essential for our very survival? – District councillor Peter Hill

“In the 1930s, Mrs Reynolds sold refreshments and filled camper’s Billies with boiling water from a copper,” says Jeanette Wells who recalls Gala Days and catching a bus to the gorge.

Parents of year 6 students are encouraged to take a good look at their child’s full primary school when choosing schooling for 2016. Why change schools when you don’t need to? Full Primary schools are tried and tested and have developed in innovative and cost effective ways since their inception in 1877. They are as important to the provision of education in 2016 as they were in 1877.

What makes them successful? • They have evolved over time and have responded to the different demographic changes since 1877. • They are located in neighbourhoods; they cater for families and respond to community needs. • They are staffed by highly trained teachers who know curriculum levels from level 1 – 5 who have had the same teacher training as teachers in other year 7 and 8 school types. • Teachers in the students current full primary school know about individual students learning progress and learning style from year 1 – 8. • Developing the whole child, flexibility, nurture, innovation and child centered learning sum up full primary schools. • Year 7 and 8 intermediate age students are the leaders and role models along with the adults in a full primary school. • School organisation in a full primary school fits the needs of students not the timetable.

What does the research tell us about the learning needs of Year 7 and 8 students? • Curriculum that is relevant, challenging, integrative, and exploratory • Multiple learning and teaching approaches • Assessment and evaluation programs that promote quality learning • Organizational structures that support meaningful relationships and learning • Educators who value working with the age group • Courageous, collaborative leadership • School-wide efforts and policies that foster health, wellness, and safety • Multifaceted guidance and support services • School-initiated family and community partnerships

ool Board of Trustees Election • All year 7 and 8 students are included in leadership nt and opportunities, Staff Election Results sporting opportunities, school

community job opportunities, buddy responsibilities and role model expectations. They are seen by others in ns, as the number of valid nominations the school as the leaders and younger students to look ber of vacancies required to be filled, up to them. e the following duly elected:

• These opportunities and strategies to build leadership, key competencies and resilience are available to all , Anthony Pollock, Cathy intermediate age children in a full primary. en, Bridget

, Liza

Looking at the above list it becomes clear that it isn’t school type or school architecture that makes the difference for intermediate age children. It is instead the learning and the attitude of professionals to this cohort of students. This can happen in any school setting as long as the leadership, teachers and nonteaching staff are committed. Full Primary Schools are providers of intermediate aged education in every way that other types of schools are.

And also The research also provides insight into what works for intermediate age children: Ministry of Education by Dinham and Rowe of the Australian Council for Educational Research. 2007 • From the broader ‘teaching and learning literature’, there is strong evidence that the quality of teaching which students receive at all levels and stages of schooling is of major importance in influencing achievement outcomes for students. • While productive and positive student-teacher relationships are identified as an important characteristic of highly performing schools catering for middle years students, it needs to be acknowledged that good teachers and school leaders at all levels of schooling is what works. • It is therefore debateable whether at least some aspects of the philosophy and enactment of middle schooling is any different from ‘good’ teaching and effective schooling generally in all school types.

The literature is clear in advocating ‘middle schooling approaches focusing on quality teaching and enhanced learning’ rather than on school type. Therefore it is what happens in the classroom to support learning and what happens across the school to cater for the specific developmental, cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs of intermediate age children that makes the difference. Not school type. The research on middle schooling and its implications to provision of quality education to year 7 and 8 students is as applicable to full primary schools as it is for other intermediate schooling types.

Representation Review – Have Your Say The way your Council is structured is changing – and we’re seeking your feedback on the options for change. Selwyn District Council is currently undertaking a Representation Review, which will result in changes to the way the Council is structured in the future. This includes possible changes to the number of wards, ward boundaries, the number of councillors, whether councillors should be elected across the whole district or within wards, and whether there should be Community Boards. As a first step in this process, the Council is seeking informal feedback on a range of options for future representation. The Council’s Representation Review sub-committee will consider this community feedback before developing a final proposal which will go out for formal public consultation in September. On these pages you will find more information on the review, the options being considered by the Council, and how you can provide feedback. Consultation is open until 5pm on Wednesday 29 July. A series of public meetings are planned on Tuesday 7 and Thursday 9 July – anyone can attend these meetings to find out more about the options, and talk to councillors and staff about the review. You can provide comments via the feedback form available online at www.selwyn.govt.nz/representation.

What is the Representation Review? Selwyn District Council last undertook a representation review in 2009, in preparation for the 2010 elections. Councils are required by law to review representation arrangements at least once every six years. The processes for the review are set out in the Local Electoral Act 2001. The Council must provide for effective representation of communities and their interests and fair representation of electors. Some of the factors the Council must take into account include: · Communities of interest · Effective representation of communities of interest · Number of elected members · Fair representation of electors The population of each ward, divided by the number of members to be elected by their ward, must produce a figure no more than 10% greater or smaller than the population of the district, divided by the total of elected members. The Council must consider whether community boards are appropriate to provide fair and effective representation for individuals and communities within our District.

What’s the current structure? At present, the Council is made up of the mayor, who is elected at large by all electors, and 11 councillors, who are elected across the four existing wards: Ellesmere (2), Malvern (2), Selwyn Central (4), and Springs (3). There are community boards in Selwyn Central and Malvern wards.

What’s changed since 2009? Selwyn’s population has been growing rapidly in recent years. However, population growth has not occurred evenly across the district. This means the existing ward boundaries are no longer appropriate as they do not provide effective representation across the district. The current ward boundaries must be reviewed to provide for fair and effective representation. Existing wards

What’s proposed? The Council’s Representation Review sub-committee has developed four options for reorganising the ward boundaries and is seeking community feedback on these. These are preliminary proposals only at this stage. After this feedback process, the committee will determine a final proposal which will then go out for formal public consultation.

The options proposed for consideration are: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Four wards with 11 elected representatives (Option 1) Three wards with 10 elected representatives (Option 2) Three wards with 9 elected representatives (Option 3) District-wide elections – 10 elected representatives elected across the entire district (Option 4)

What about community boards? As part of the Representation Review the Council must also give consideration to whether community boards are appropriate to provide fair and effective representation for individuals and communities within our District. As defined in the Local Government Act 2002, the role of community boards is to: (a) represent, and act as an advocate for, the interests of its community; and (b) consider and report on all matters referred to it by the territorial authority, or any matter of interest or concern to the community board; and (c) maintain an overview of services provided by the territorial authority within the community; and (d) prepare an annual submission to the territorial authority for expenditure within the community; and (e) communicate with community organisations and special interest groups within the community; and (f) undertake any other responsibilities that are delegated to it by the territorial authority. A community board is an unincorporated body, and is not a committee of the council. Under the Council’s current system, two of the four wards (Selwyn Central and Malvern) have community boards, and two do not. The Council is proposing that community boards are not retained under the proposed options.

Will these changes affect my rates? Change to the ward boundaries or the number of councillors will not have an impact on rates. Remuneration of councillors is based on a fixed pool of funds, which is spread across all councillors, irrespective of the number of councillors. Community boards are funded by a targeted rate within the respective ward.

FOOD Hornado de chancho marinated roast pork leg Ingredients 4½ kgs Pork, leg, boned and rolled (ask your butcher to do this for you) 2 Tbsp Ground cumin 2 Tbsp Sea salt 1½ Tbsp Ground paprika 2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper 4 Limes, juice only 3 bottles Lager, 375ml each 80g Butter, melted Directions Use a small sharp knife to score the skin of the pork and make several deep incisions in the pork leg. Place in a non-reactive tray. Combine the garlic, cumin, salt, paprika and pepper in a bowl. Pour the lime juice over the pork and rub into all sides, then rub the spiced garlic paste over the pork, pushing it into the incisions. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. Pour the beer over the pork, cover and return to the refrigerator to marinate for a further 12 to 24

hours, turning occasionally so that the leg marinates evenly. Preheat a gas barbecue fitted with a rotisserie to 200 deg C. All the burners should be turned to medium. Insert the rotisserie rod lengthwise through the leg of pork, ensuring the pork leg is evenly balanced. Secure the rotisserie spit according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Turn off the burners directly underneath the pork, leaving the side burners on medium. Place a drip tray filled with 1cm water underneath the pork. Baste the pork with the melted butter. Reduce the heat to 180 deg C and cook the pork for 1½ to 2 hours, or until the skin is crisp and golden brown and the meat is just cooked through. Test with a skewer, the juices should run clear. Use barbecue mitts to remove the rotisserie rod. Take the pork off the rod and place on a large tray. Cover with foil and set aside to rest for 10 minutes. Cut into slices and serve with Peruvian Onion Salsa, Brazilian Rice, and Grilled Red Capsicum.

Macaroni and cauliflower cheese Ingredients 1 Cauliflower 1 Macaroni 1 Cheese 1 White sauce 2 drops Worcestershire sauce 1 Salt 1 to decorate Tomato, sliced 1 Bacon bits, (optional) Directions Blanch the cauliflower. Cook the macaroni in salted water until tender. Make a simple white sauce and melt a good amount of cheese into it. A little Worcestershire sauce helps boost the flavour. Sit the macaroni and cauliflower in a baking dish. Pour over the cheesy sauce and gently mix through the contents. You could add grilled bacon pieces. Decorate with some tomato slices, add a little more grated cheese to the top and bake in a moderate oven until brown and bubbling.

GARDENING

Few climbing plants can match the dazzling bracts of bougainvillea for a sensational wall of colour.

Five

Mark Rayner highlights climbing plants that will add a hit of colour to the garden.

COLOURFUL

climbers

C

LIMBING plants play an important role in garden design, and can be used in all manner of ways from screening fences or buildings to enhancing garden structures such as overhead beams and arches. They can even be grown to add seasonal interest (and height) to a mixed bed or border. The advantage of many climbing plants is that they take up less space than other shrubs and trees, making them the ideal choice for the smaller garden. Whether it’s the dazzling red bracts of bourgainvillea or the subtle purple tones of hardenbergia, there’s plenty on offer when it comes to colourful climbers.

SCARLET FEVER For a stunning show of rich red, look to the aptly-named bourgainvillea ‘Scarlet O’Hara’. Its dense display of brightly coloured bracts cover the plant for months on end. Bourgainvillea uses its thorny spikes to climb, so may need additional help to keep it attached to some ungrippable garden structures. Great for growing up a trellis panel to form a fabulous colourful screen, or trained against a fence or pergola, this showy, coast-tolerant favourite is ideal for creating a relaxed Mediterranean feel. Preferring a sunny spot in well-drained soil, it will need watering in hotter weather, at least until it becomes fully established.

ORANGE CRUSH Okay, so they may not be considered the most sophisticated of plants, but the good old nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) is a hard-working little beauty that will add a real burst of seasonal colour to any mixed border or vegetable and herb garden. This one likes to scramble and climb through vertical structures, so is at its best when grown up a bamboo ‘wigwam’ or chicken wire support. These cheerful, fast-growing annuals not only brighten the garden, they also liven up a summer salad with their distinctive peppery flowers and leaves. Easily grown from seed, they will readily self-seed each year, so do keep an eye on them, especially in warmer areas, to ensure they don’t take over.

FEELING BLUE If you’re after a cooler-coloured flowering climber, then look no further than the stunning clematis ‘Sir Garnet Wolseley’ with its gorgeous mauve-blue flowers and dark green deciduous foliage. Great for introducing some spring colour, this magnificent selfclimbing beauty looks fabulous grown over ornamental garden structures such as overhead beams or a large obelisk. It will do best in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade, and requires very little in the way of pruning.

IN THE PINK

PURPLE PASSION

Fancy a burst of summer pink? Then the flamboyant Mandevilla ‘Alice Dupont’ may well fit the bill with its glorious, long-lasting display of rich-pink, trumpetlike flowers. This twining climber needs a spot in full sun for best results, but is tolerant of most soil types as long as they’re well-drained. New shoots can be pruned back to encourage bushier growth, but do take care when pruning as the sap can be an irritant. This one will need protection from frost.

The appropriately named ‘Purple Coral Pea’ (Hardenbergia violacea) is a tough little Australian climber that produces a wonderful display of showy, purple, pea-like flowers in winter and spring. It is fast-growing with tough, leathery, evergreen foliage, making it a useful plant for covering unsightly fences and walls or providing year-round screening. It can even be used as vigorous ground cover. Hardenbergias thrive in most well-drained soils and do best in a sunny spot. They respond well to hard pruning.

gardening without guesswork Question:

I’m pretty new to this whole gardening thing, is it time to prune my roses now?

Firstly, good on you for having a go at gardening! Everyone has to start somewhere. Now is a great time to prune your roses (all but spring only blooming roses such as old fashioned). The plant will respond well to a good prune as it allows new growth, lets in more sun and air, and ultimately creates a healthier plant that will produce more blooms. You don’t have to be an expert to be able to do this job, just remember these few things:  Prune on a clear fine day. Rain can promote the spread of diseases into new cuts.

Answer:

 Make sure your secateurs or loppers are sharp. You will want a nice clean cut. Where possible, clean these between plants. This will help to stop a disease spreading from plant to plant.

WIN! IGrO aN INTEll cK prIZE pa T ValuEd a $50.00!

 Remove up to a third of the plant, starting with the outer over-

hanging branches and working your way in, removing any dead or diseased branches along the way. Trim to the shape you want, the plant is pretty forgiving and will bounce back from a good cut. Note: you may want to wear some gardening gloves for this part!

 Once you’re finished, spray the plant with a winter spray to kill any pests or diseases. Sprays can be found at your local hardware store or garden centre.

 After you’ve removed all the clippings, add a layer of mulch to the area. Use some Organic Compost to boost up the soil, or if you prefer, add a layer of bark to the top.

CPIT graduate and budding butler to train with

London’s finest

Maori-Pasifika trades training giving students

skills for rebuild and beyond

C

PIT-trained food and hospitality professional Simon Wilke, who got his start through  the New Zealand Government-led  Youth Guarantee scheme, is about to take a new career turn; to be a British-trained butler. The National Diploma in Hospitality Management graduate has  been accepted into the London-based British Butler  Institute, an international school for butler  and front of house professionals. His  course starts in September, with guaranteed work  placement afterwards at the famous London hotel, The Ritz, in October.   He is taking his hospitality and cooking skills around the world and intends to build on his training in operational and management methods, international workplaces, worldwide front office operations, global food and beverage service, functions, events and human resources. On his course, Wilke also learned about presentation and professionalism, which are valuable attributes in a modern butler, who must be capable of taking on any daily task, from ironing a shirt to organising a dinner party.  “I owe so much to CPIT. I walked through the door not a very confident person, and walked out a confident one, with a whole set of skills.” After leaving Christchurch’s Middleton Grange School in 2010, he signed up for  the government training initiative, the Youth Guarantee scheme, to do  a Certificate in Hospitality so he could continue his studies and learn practical skills. 

Dinner is served: Former Youth Guarantee scheme student and CPIT Food and Hospitality graduate Simon Wilke is off to learn butlery skills at a prestigious London school.

“I saw it as a way of getting where I wanted to go and to start a great career, to get the experience I needed along with a qualification.” Enrolment in CPIT’s National Diploma of Hospitality Management was the next logical step. He graduated in 2013 and since then has worked at several well-known restaurants in Canterbury, including Beaufort House at Akaroa and Flames Italian Restaurant.  To fund his UK travel and $10,000 course, Wilke continues to be involved in his family’s drainlaying business by day and as a maitre d’ at Christchurch’s  Protocol  Public House and Kitchen by night. Wilke intends to return to New Zealand to do the CPIT Bachelor of Hospitality Management, specialising in events and intends to keep in contact with the institute.  “I’d like to give back to CPIT because they really gave me a kick start.”

T

he Pasifika Trades Training programme and Maori-led He Toki ki te Rika initiative are providing opportunities for Maori and Pasifika people to learn a trade and contribute to the Christchurch rebuild. CPIT offers full scholarships in a New Zealand Government-led Skills for Canterbury package, and the South Island iwi-led He Toki scheme brings together the strengths, knowledge, expertise, capability and network of Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, the Hawkins Group and CPIT. He Toki carpentry pre-trade trainee Semiko Tallot-Stuart, 19, is thriving in the environment provided by these initiatives and aims to be Hawkins’ first ever female apprentice. “Hawkins, He Toki and CPIT are very passionate about what they do with us. They want to see us succeed,” she said. The former officer/worker and her He Toki trade colleagues are supervised by Hawkins’

site manager Tony Coles, who is also in charge of the CPIT Trades’ new workshop complex. “My first two He Toki trainees Lio Tauanu’u and Amos Neate have been really good apprentices – I’ve got a lot of time for them. Semiko’s still young, and she’s coming along, absorbing all she needs to know to be an apprentice,” Coles said. The ex-New Zealand Army staff sergeant and veteran builder of 36 years believes good communication is one of the best skills an apprentice should develop. “Building is about plumb, straight and true, but it’s also about how to deal with people.” He said there’s never been a better time to be an apprentice, with so much work in the building industry with the rebuild for the next 10 to 15 years. He Toki and Pasifika Trades Training offer free trades training in carpentry, civil construction, engineering, furniture and joinery, general engineering, painting, plaster board and plumbing and gasfitting.

“Building is about plumb, straight and true, but it’s also about how to deal with people.”

New partnership and premium earning

opportunity announced Synlait Milk announced a new partnership with the United States company Munchkin Inc and a subsequent premium earning milk supply opportunity at its annual milk supply conference held in Christchurch on June 18.

M

Synlait forklift

unchkin, an innovative baby products manufacturer, plans to launch a new Grass Fed branded retail-ready infant formula into the United States and China that will be manufactured exclusively by Synlait. Synlait managing director Dr John Penno says, strategically, Synlait has been looking at opportunities that reduce its exposure to China. “We are cognisant of ensuring our infant formula business does not become overly reliant on the China market, and so Munchkin, with its focus on the United States market, is a potentially important addition to our growing portfolio of retail-ready infant

formula customers,” said Dr Penno. The raw milk used to manufacture the unique infant formula is subject to a new Grass Fed standard co-developed by Munchkin and Synlait. It requires cows to be exclusively grazed on a pasture and cropbased diet, with no feeding of grain or feed not grown in New Zealand. Farmers will be independently audited to ensure they meet and maintain the standard. Munchkin CEO Steve Dunn says, “The new standard, and a unique Grass Fed infant formula line to meet growing consumer demand, particularly in the United States, is a big opportunity for Munchkin. Our forecast gross revenue for FY15 is over US$300 million, and we expect the growth

of the Grass Fed infant formula business to contribute significantly to our bottom line over time.” Dr Penno added that Grass Fed is a unique value added opportunity that will reward a small group of Synlait suppliers who choose to follow the new standard by paying them a premium for their milk. “Our focus is on ensuring we continue to provide our milk suppliers with opportunities to earn more for their milk, over and above the base milk price. Grass Fed adds to the existing range of premium earning options our suppliers can choose from which includes A2 milk, Immuron Colostrum, and our best practice dairy farming programme, Lead with Pride™,” Dr Penno said.

Farmers encouraged to

complete survey

Lincoln University researchers want to know how farmers and their families are dealing with being in debt and the stress it can bring.

B

ruce Greig, Dr Kevin Old and Dr Peter Nuthall, from the university’s Faculty of Agribusiness and Commerce, are conducting a nationwide survey investigating farm debt and the level of anxiety experienced by farmers who incur it. Mr Greig says they want to discover how they manage debt, as it is one of the many skills farmers require. “Farming in modern times is very capital intensive. Many farmers rely on debt to finance these investments. Using leverage has helped many farmers achieve their goal of farm ownership and wealth creation. “However, given most production units are family businesses, debt issues can impinge heavily on both the farmer and the farmer’s family,” Mr Greig says. He says there is currently significant attention on the farming debt situation,

particularly in dairying. The concern is mostly about the consequences of high debt relative to the current profitability of farming and primary production in general. “Currently, little is known about farmers’ practices in this regard and the research will help better understand the farmer and family issues surrounding debt.” The research data will be gathered by a nationwide postal survey with a questionnaire that was posted to 2300 farmers on June 22. The sample is randomly selected from all regions, farm types and sizes, and the survey is being funded by Lincoln University. Mr Greig says the results will provide critical information to the development and planning of primary production in New Zealand.  “As farms become more and more

It’s simple to answer. Results of the survey will be widely distributed throughout the farming press, and the results will be on the internet.” He wanted farmers to take the full estimated 45 minutes to reply, so the results would be more comprehensive, and to send it back. “The more farmers who reply, the more useful the results will be.” The researchers bring a range of skills to the area.

y first really big challenge, the Christchurch Half Marathon, is complete. On my 43rd birthday, I and another of the Shapeshifters team, Amber, as well as our support crew in Jean and Amy, walked 21km in just over three hours and 30 minutes. The time spent in the gym under the watchful eye of Penelope Sole paid off, and after a day’s rest I was back in the gym fully recovered albeit a teeny bit sore. I was talking to my sister Vicki on the phone, and she was talking about having to pull out of the cycling leg of the Challenge Wanaka to be held in February next year. I thought I might be able to take her place if she was doing the 90km, but she said it was the full 180km. I may be keen but some things might be just a bit of

a stretch, and 180km around Wanaka would have been pushing it. I received a phone call the next day. Vicki had been talking to a very good old school friend of mine. As it will be our 30year anniversary since we were in third form next year, some of the boys from our class had challenged the girls to the half course team’s event. The cyclist lined up for the girls had to pull out of the 90km cycle so guess who has now put their hand up to take her place. As it will almost be a year to the day since we started this amazing programme, it will be a great way to mark the occasion. If you set your mind to something and prepare for it, you just might surprise yourself.

hapeshifters at Lincoln University are now halfway through their journey. We will be starting our halfway mark testing in the next week to see where the improvements are happening. At the start, we did a number of tests so we can have a true measure of results. We took photos, measurements, performed physical tests and a body composition analysis, which measures muscle and fat percentage in the body) At the halfway mark we assess the results and adjust programmes to suit the individual if needed.

A

Everyone is still so focused and committed that I personally can see differences in my Shape Shifter clients. The biggest difference I have noticed is attitude. All my Shapeshifter clients come into Lincoln University Rec Centre for their weekly PT session positive and ready to share their week’s journey. They are telling me they are feeling great and are starting to notice the benefits of regular exercise themselves. The regular workouts and adjustments to their diets is definitely helping them achieve their goals.

pparently we are now four months into this challenge and things are ticking along nicely. I haven’t lost much weight on the scales, but the centimetres are falling off the waist line. I’ve even had to buy new pants as my old pants resembled body bags. I’m also cranking out the fitness routine with comparative ease now. On the fitness front, I’m heading along to Franks Brothers Selwyn and doing the CrossFit classes. The biggest revelation has been going to the 6.30 am classes. Going in the morning is fantastic as I get it over and done with, and for the rest of the day I don’t have that nagging feeling that I

still have exercise to do and I have no excuses. I also feel good for the rest of the day. Now that I am exercising consistently, I can see the gains I’m making.

PROTECTING YOUR

M

otorhomes, horse floats and other similar assets can also be clear coated. Nano-Clear provides an easy-clean, fade-resistant exterior that looks good and lasts for years, making the annual cut-and-polish a thing of the past as it provides a long-lasting protective shield over all of a vehicle’s surfaces. This includes the paintwork,

trim, chrome, glass and wheels. This product also helps protect vehicles from everyday damage, such as stone chips that would otherwise erode their value, while restoring the original colour and gloss to faded surfaces — meaning it is a cheaper option than repainting. “Nano-Clear enhances the durability of numerous surfaces,” says Neil Wareing, owner of Transform Clear Coating.

“It protects them against corrosion and other environmental effects such as fading, with an added bonus that the surfaces become smoother and easier to clean.” It is no wonder that Transform Clear Coating’s customers rave about the glistening, easy to clean paintwork on their vehicles.

Honda CRV stands the test of time SPECIFICATIONS

IT WAS nearly 20 years ago when Honda introduced its sport utility vehicle – the CRV. CRV is a common abbreviation for compact recreational vehicle, but by all accounts it is what we have largely termed an SUV. The CRV is mid-size and it is still true to the original concept, even though it is now well through its fourth lifecycle. Honda has just refreshed the CRV which suggests it is on track for another generational change in a couple of years’ time. For 2015 the CRV gets a mild facelift up front with the inclusion of daytime running lights, there are bigger wheels, and it gets a heap of fitment inclusions, most for safety. The test car was badged Sport NT, and it is the range-topping model within the line-up. It sits at $54,990, bearing in mind that the range starts at $38,990 for a twowheel-drive, 2-litre variant. For its price the Sport NT represents amazing value. The level of fitment is way too comprehensive to list in detail, but major items include full leather trim (heated

Price: Honda CRV Sport NT, $54,990. Dimensions: Length,4585mm; width, 1820mm; height, 1685mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, four-wheel-drive, 2354cc, 140kW, 222Nm, fivespeed automatic. Performance: 0-100km/h, 9sec.

HONDA CRV SPORT: Facelift introduces new technology and features. seats up front and electrically adjustable), satellite navigation, active cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, and electric sunroof. For safety the list is very comprehensive, new features include collision mitigation braking and lane watch camera which is linked to lane keep assist and lane departure warning, these features on top of what are now deemed to be usual safety inclusions. Under the bonnet sits Honda’s tried and trusted four-cylinder, twin-camshaft engine of 2354cc. It is rated with 140kW and 222Nm of torque. As we have come to expect from Honda, it is an engine which is quite peaky at the top end. If you take into

account that maximum power sits at 7000rpm and peak torque doesn’t arrive until 4000rpm, there’s a belief that it needs to work hard to achieve results. However, that’s not quite how it operates, the engine management protocols are structured so that the engine doesn’t work uneccessarily hard. Especially so if you use the economical approach, encouraged by the inclusion of a button which deliberately numbs the engine down to an operating manner which is a little lazier, yet far more efficient. According to Honda, the CRV in four-wheel-drive form will use fuel at the rate of 8.7-litres per 100km (33mpg). That fits well

with the fuel usage readout which was constantly hovering around 9.4l/100km (30mpg). Drive flows through a five-speed automatic gearbox. Shifts are smooth, kick-downs are quick and the ratios are structured so that engine load is minimal. And, of course, the 2015 CRV gets steering wheel-mounted paddles for driver involvement. However, the CRV is all about practicality. With just 170mm of ground clearance it couldn’t be described as an off-roader, but it is what has loosely been termed a soft-roader and is capable in low grip situations. I experienced a long section of road works when I was out testing,

so in order not to get the vehicle overly dirty I ventured along a ditch to a dry, clean surface. Grip wasn’t lost in the transition, but it was a bit of a test for four-wheeldrive and suspension ability. The spring and damper rates are structured for comfort. Most critics will tell you that double wishbone suspension offers the best occupant comfort, the CRV’s rear end has that type. On-road handling is far from compromised. Honda has done a lot of work with steering and suspension settings for the facelift model, it feels very car-like to drive with composed body balance. You can guarantee Honda is working tirelessly on the next generation CRV. In the interim, the fresh model now in showrooms will satisfy. Sales are still buoyant for CRV which is recognition for how well it has stood the test of time.

GET AWAY FROM THE COLD

TO FIJI

with every Onyx Home!

A PERFECT FIT! A purpose-designed plan to suit your lifestyle - for LESS than a standard plan!

By Richard Freeman ~ Director Onyx Homes Ltd

The management team of Onyx Homes are quite simply some of the best and most experienced people in the industry. It’s through this experience that Onyx Homes wants to bring to their customers a better standard of home that is often less than the standard-plan-built homes of their competitors. Onyx believe that everyone is unique, so why settle for a standard-plan-home when you can have a purpose-designed plan to suit exactly your lifestyle and for less than a standard plan? A perfect fit! This is testament to our customers who have been amazed at the savings with Onyx, but also hadn’t realised their budget would allow for a such quality spec and design.

• Don’t believe everything you hear in the media some building companies trying to margin enhance, making ridiculous statements about huge building price increases. • If you want genuine best pricing and top quality give Onyx Homes a call. You are guaranteed to talk to LOCAL industry professionals with years of experience rather than a sales person trained over night drafted into the industry with limited knowledge and zero idea on building costs working off a pre prepared song sheet. A sad but true statement in many cases. • Honesty, integrity, experience and common sense always outweighs “smoke and mirrors” and unfortunately common sense is not that common in many cases. Building commodity prices ARE stable, and I will personally guarantee that.

Ways to warm up

P

Looking at the pros and cons of some heating options.

hysically being warm is such a good thing that it has become a metaphor for all the positive things in our lives: the warmth of friendship, a warm greeting, a warm smile, a warm glow within, etc. Being warm is essential for health, comfort and enjoyment of life. In terms of living environments, ‘warm’ is a minimum 18 degrees Celsius as recommended by the World Health Organization. Less than 16C, and the risk of illness increases. Heating a poorly insulated home is like pouring water into a leaky bucket. If you pour fast enough it will fill, but as soon as you stop all the work is undone, so it’s important you plan your heating and insulation together (as much as possible). One of the two main considerations for heating is how much is needed to keep your home warm, and Energywise provides a great start to answering this question. Under ‘tools and calculaters’ on the Energywise website www.energywise.govt.nz, there’s an easy-to-use “heater sizing calculator” that determines how big a heater is required for a room, based on your city, the type of room, insulation, number of external walls, window size and room area. Once the details are filled in, you are provided with the heat output required (in kilowatts) to counter the lowest outdoor winter temperature for your area. When choosing a heat pump, you must check if it can reach the advised heat output

when temperatures are at their lowest (-4C for Christchurch, according to Energywise). The type of heating you can use will most likely be constricted by regulation, but you also need to consider fuel source, availability, fuel storage, running cost, security of supply, room use and the amount of energy you require it to produce. All energy sources have pros and cons. Let’s focus on what I consider to be the simplest form of energy – electricity. RADIANT AND CONVECTION HEATERS There’s a huge number of these on the market, and they’re cheap to buy, but relatively expensive to run. They’re good for small or medium-sized rooms that are used less often. If you’ve got children around, it’s safest to mount the heaters out of reach – particularly radiant ones. Flat panel heaters don’t produce as much heat so are safer in this respect. Radiant heaters heat you instantly, so if you rush in and out of the bathroom in the morning or want to grab a piece of toast quickly in the kitchen before being late to work, these are good. They directly heat you, rather than the air, making them good options for poorly insulated houses. There are types of radiant heaters that mount the element within a panel, giving a lower more even heat. Convection heaters heat up the air. Chances are you’ll have one of these in the shape of

Underfloor heating is one way to turn up the heat.

Convection heaters offer a quick fix heating solution.

an oil column heater. They’re less hot than a radiant heater, but still too hot to touch. And if it is an oil column heater, watch out for stability. Thermostats, while not that accurate, and timers can make these more efficient to use. Flat panel heaters are often claimed to be cheaper to run, but they also produce less heat. Fan or ceramic heaters blow hot air around and are great for that quick boost when you’re initially heating up a room, and they better distribute hot air rather than it just rising and sitting under the ceiling.

be expensive. These store heat in a mass just like the passive solar systems, but in this case the heat comes from cheaper electricity your supplier will often provide overnight. As they release heat during the day, it’s wasted if you’re not there.

NEWMAN PARK

UNDERFLOOR This can be expensive to run. It needs to be well-insulated underneath the heating elements so you aren’t paying to heat the ground beneath your house. Any surface covering, such as carpets, makes it harder for the heat to get through. I know people who love it and other people who are too scared to turn it back on because of the cost, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the way it warms you up.

Keep out the cold Highlighting the importance of insulation from top to bottom.

O

ur living environments benefit from additional insulation in the cooler months, and though energy-efficient insulation is standard regulatory practice in the new builds, older homes will almost certainly become more energy efficient (and comfortable) with some extra layers to keep out the cold. START AT THE TOP Heat rises so it makes sense when insulating to start with the roof cavity. Most popular for do-it-yourself enthusiasts are sheets of glass ‘wool’ made from recycled glass (the most well-known brand being Pink Batts). These are designed to fit within the wooden framing of a roof and provide a thermal barrier, preventing heat from escaping upwards. Pink Batts are fairly straightforward to install – they need to be fitted snugly, but not tightly squashed together as this will reduce their efficiency. Be sure to follow manufacturer’s recommendations when installing and take particular care to wear suitable protective clothing as the glass fibres can be an irritant. For older properties that already have some ceiling insulation (albeit inadequate), the answer might be a simple retrofitting of extra insulation over the existing layer. Other insulation materials include products

made from synthetics and wool — though these tend to be a more costly option. WALL TO WALL External wall cavities can also be filled in the same way, although access to the wall cavity will require removal of the inner wall lining or outer cladding — so this is obviously best done when re-gibbing a wall or recladding the outside. Another, less disruptive option is to have wall cavities filled with an insulating polyurethane foam (injected into the wall through drilled Good roof insulation is top of the list if you want a holes). It’s thought there’s little point in warm home. insulating inner-wall cavities, though products like Pink Batts will also help with noise reduction, if this is a consideration. glass and thermally lined curtains will also help in this respect. UNDERFOOT Consider wrapping your hoy water Underfloor insulation can also help cylinder and covering pipes with purposewith energy efficiency – especially in made wrap to prevent heat loss. older properties with gap-filled, draughtSelf-adhesive foam strips around doors encouraging floorboards. Thick polystyrene and older windows may help to cut down blocks cut to size and snugly fitted between on draughts. floor joists will solve this problem – Expol is one of the most popular products an it can CHECK WITH THE COUNCIL be readily fitted by the homeowner so long If in doubt, your local council will be as there’s easy underfloor access. aware of minimum insulation requirements for the conditions in your area and will be OTHER WAYS TO INSULATE able to advise you accordingly. They may Double glazing will certainly help to stop also assist with local grants to help pay for warm air from escaping through window extra insulation.

Pink Batts in an exterior wall cavity will help keep the warmth in and the cold out.

CAN THE GOVERNMENT HELP? Though funding is limited in all areas, the government might also be able to help under the ‘Warm up New Zealand’ scheme. If you have a Community Services Card and have someone under the age of 17 or over the age of 65 living in the house, you may qualify for free insulation.

A happy healthy home

M

ore than ever, we now require our homes to be a sanctuary - a primate haven where the cares and pressures of the world do not intrude. The home should be an enveloping, warm and creative environment where family members of all ages feel relaxed and safe. The longer you live in your home, the more likely you are to feel in sync with it. As the seasons come and go, you’ll have to know which rooms are sunny and which ones need brightening. You’ll have noted areas prone to damp. You’ll have observed where different family members like to spend their time and why. You might have come to the conclusion that major changes are required to make your home as healthy as possible, or perhaps you’ve concluded that a few simple tweaks will do the trick. Either way, good planning is essential, so take your time, write lots of lists and do your research thoroughly.

plenty of natural ventilation, and warm in winter. Traditional open fires are being phased out and homeowners are discovering the joys of installing modern woodburners, using gas for heating or installing a heat pump. All these options are healthy — technology has come a long way and most choices will see you saving money in the long run.

STORAGE While a minimalist style might be fine for single people or couples without kids, when the patter of tiny feet comes along, good storage is going to be vital at every stage of a child’s life — be they babies or teens — they come with clutter. The more you can contain that clutter, the better in terms of both your mental health and general safety. There are any number of options available, from professionally designed cupboards and wardrobes, to the simple lidded plastic boxes you can buy at chain stores.
