Kerrs Reach back in spotlight High levels of E.coli from dog and canada geese faeces FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Water contamination at Kerrs Reach is back in the spotlight after a recently released report has shown it has unacceptably high levels of E. coli and campylobacter from dog and canada geese faeces. Samples were taken from nine locations in the city, including Kerrs Reach and South New Brighton Park, between April and September last year, at normal flowing level and after rainfall. The report, by Environmental

Science and Research, investigated what faecal sources were at the locations. They included dog, wildfowl, sheep, cow and human faeces. At Kerrs Reach (right) the most dominant sources were human faeces and wildfowl – canada geese – in normal flow. After rainfall, dog faeces were added to the mix. At normal flow E.coli registered at a normal level. After rainfall it registered at over four times the recreational water quality guidelines said the report. Report co-author Dr

Brent Gilpin said levels of contamination at Kerrs Reach are “effectively the same” as pre-quake levels. “In terms of exceeding recreational bathing guidelines, the levels from wildfowl and under rainfall events dog sources result

in exceeding levels,” he said. Kerrs Reach is a popular rowing spot, and in January Pegasus Post reported it was one the worst locations in the city for water pollution. South New Brighton Park’s results showed E. coli levels to be low in all six samples, and campylobacter was only found in one sample. The dominant source of faeces in normal flow and after rainfall was wildfowl. Canterbury University’s Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management Professor Bryan Jenkins

suggested a potential solution to the problem of bird fouling could be to “create an alternate bird life habitat”, helping to keep them out of the city’s waterways. Opawaho Heathcote River Network chairwoman Helene Mautner said that like the Heathcote River, Kerrs Reach has had “continuous problems” with sewerage and faeces. Have your say: What do you think should be done to fix the city’s waterways? Email fraser.walker@ starmedia.kiwi

Hands-on experience Parkview Primary School pupils Liam Meyer, 6, (left) and Sean Ison, 7, experienced what it was like to be part of the Wainoni Fire Service. FreshChoice Parklands held a fire safety day last Thursday as part of its daylight saving message to fit smoke alarms and check their batteries. Fire risk management officer Kyle Johnston said it’s not just a good time to check they’re working, but also a chance to get new batteries for them too. He said everyone should have an escape plan for their home, which includes how to get out and also thinking about alternative exits. • Story, more photos, page 5

Barbecues, art and shade most popular FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

New Brighton residents want to see a $25,000 transitional grant spent on public barbecues, art and shade. The city council granted the money to the Burwood-Pegasus Community Board, which in turn asked residents what they wanted to see in New Brighton. Nearly 1000 votes were recorded over the two voting sessions, which saw public barbecues, public art and shade sails, and an outdoor cinema or stage come out as favourites. The city council will now investigate the feasibility of five of the top 10 ideas. They are: Painted benches, planter boxes, sun loungers, beach volleyball and picnic tables. One of more popular ideas of shade sails will not be pursued by the city council due to limited funding, maintenance issues, and “potential of restricting key views”, said a city council spokeswoman. The most popular idea – pub-

lic barbecues – was put forward by the Strategic Urban Rejuvenation Force, and is now being worked on jointly by the group and the city council. SURF chairwoman Lesley Fulton (right) said they had been working closely with the city council on the idea. “It will be a much better project than we could have delivered by ourselves. We’ve been


working on things like locations, designs and things like that,” she said. An outdoor cinema will be looked at further by the city council by talking to community groups. During the Ray White New Brighton Duke Festival of Surfing an outdoor movie was shown in the amphitheater by the beach, with great feedback. They are currently working

through logistical issues such as locations that have power access. Now, the city council is launching another project idea and asking for feedback. The New Brighton Tiny Hut Design Competition, could see five placed in public spaces in the coming summer period. To find the survey, search Christchurch City Council on Facebook.

NEW HOUSING UNITS New housing units in Aranui will be officially opened on Friday. The 20 new units will be on Aldershot St in Aranui, and will be opened by Housing New Zealand. These units are the first of a larger citywide development, which is expected to see 700 new houses built. In December, the units while being built, were deliberately set alight. CAR HITS CHILD A child was taken to Christchurch Hospital last week after he was hit by a car in Parklands. St John sent an ambulance and a rapid response vehicle to the incident which happened on Rothesay Rd, at about 8.45am on Wednesday. The 10-year-old boy was taken to hospital with moderate injuries. ARANUI WASTEWATER About 170 houses in Aranui have been connected to the suburb’s new vacuum wastewater system. The new system uses vacuum suction instead of gravity to move sewage and wastewater from homes to the Bromley treatment station. The first streets to be connected were Marlow Rd, Doreen St, Merrington St, Rowan Ave, Esk Place, Leonie Place, parts of Pages Rd and Rowses Rd.

Name revealed for merged polytechs The merger of two Christchurch polytechnics now has a name, the Ara Institute of Canterbury. The new name was announced last week after it was decided in November last year that Aoraki Polytechnic and the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology would merge. Ara, meaning arise or pathway in Maori, is the next stage in the over 200 year combined history of CPIT and Aoraki Polytechnic. Underneath the new institute’s name is the Maori phrase ‘ara rau, taumata rau’, which means ‘many pathways, many opportunities’. The Ara logo represents an upward journey of learning, while also showing Maori tukutuku panelling, which was traditionally used to decorate meeting houses. A plan has been put in place to extend the range of programmes and services and become a destination for national and international students.

Change the batteries in your smoke alarms MARK THOMAS, FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Both institutes have been in the Canterbury and Waitaki region for more than 100 years each. Ara Institute of Canterbury chairwoman Jenn Bestwick (left) said the intention of the new facility is to continue working with industry partners and our communities to adapt to the needs of the region and of modern learners. “Our new name signals we have stepped into an exciting new future together.” Ara deputy chairwoman Janie Annear said business, science, ICT and youth pathway programmes have been extended to south Canterbury this year.

Smoke alarms should be like car seat belts. Nobody thinks twice about clicking tight every time they get into a car. Likewise working smoke alarms should be an absolute expectation in every home. Which made this weekend an important one because daylight saving ended with clocks being hauled back an hour. You might have seen the latest advertisements from the Fire Service, as always encouraging people to use the day as a trigger to having the batteries in your smoke alarms changed. Too many of us use the warning cheep of the alarm to tell us it’s time to change batteries. There are good reasons not to do this. If it happens while you’re away it’s possible the battery will be completely dead by the time you return. You’ll be living with the mistaken belief that the alarm will warn you of fire. If you’re home when it happens I can almost guarantee it

will occur at about 3am. Which means the only way you’ll get back to sleep will be to pull the alarm down and remove the battery. You’re now unprotected. And will remain so for as long as it takes you to buy a new battery and reinstate the alarm. Using this weekend every year to ensure your smoke alarm batteries are changed, or if you have alarms with 10-year batteries, that they are cleaned with the brush accessory on your vacuum cleaner, creates a habit of a lifetime. More likely a longer lifetime too.

Support for allowing dogs in pedestrian mall

Fire safety day for public FreshChoice Parklands held a fire safety day as part of its daylight savings message to fit smoke alarms and check their batteries. The clocks were wound back an hour at 3am on Sunday, a timely reminder the Fire Service said to install and check smoke alarms. On Thursday, Wainoni firefighters were in the supermarket’s car park, along with senior fire risk management personnel, to remind the public to install and check smoke alarms. Senior fire risk management officer Kyle Johnston said it’s a good time to check that they’re working, and to get new batter-

that came to join in, which was great. And a lot of people walked away with a timely reminder,” Mr Brown said. During a house fire, toxic smoke will build up and rise towards the ceiling. Mr Johnson said it is vital to get down low in that situation. “It’s vital to have an escape plan for your house . . . and also think about alternative exits as well,” he said. There was an evacuation challenge for Parkview pupils to take part in. It involved a darkened maze in which they could practice their very own ‘get down, get low and get out’ technique.

More than 170 people have supported the city council’s move to allow dogs into the New Brighton Pedestrian Mall. Dogs are currently prohibited in the mall, but the results of a public consultation on the proposed dog control bylaw has shown 72 per cent of respondents were happy to see dogs in the mall. Other changes to the current policy include dog owners being required to carry plastic bags with them, having them under effective control, as well as having to keep their dog near and in sight when off the lead. The city council received 235 responses, including submissions from the BurwoodPegasus Community Board, the Southshore Residents’ Association, and the New Brighton Guardians. The residents’ association wanted to see more dog owners show control of their pet when it is in The Spit Reserve. They agreed with the new definition of under effective control, and also wanted to see more owners clean up after their dog. The community board said it wanted to see training and agil-

ity courses at each of the three dog parks in the ward, those being Horseshoe Lake, Rawhiti Domain and Bexley Reserve. The community board agreed that dogs should be allowed in the pedestrian mall. The New Brighton Guardians said it had witnessed multiple dog attacks in the past and wanted to understand how the city council would enforce the rule of under effective control. It suggested spot fines for anyone who didn’t display control of their dog. Public consultation on the bylaw was opened to the public on February 1, closed on March 14, and hearings are now expected to be heard in early April.

Head Prefects for 2016 Aranui High School’s Samoan group on stage at Polyfest 2016 at Westminster Park in March.

Aranui High School’s Samoan group lit up the stage at Polyfest 2016 with their “swan song” performance on Saturday March 19, marking the end of an era due to the amalgation of several schools on the east side of Christchurch as a result of the earthquakes. 2016 presented new initiatives with the Pasifika group coordinator role being handed to Rose Telea to get it back up and running. Shane Asi (past student and Pasifika group tutor) took it upon himself to restore the Aranui High polyfest group to its former glory. Reviving old songs from the school’s repertoire gave vibrancy

Pair race to finish Two Aranui High School students took part in the in the Coast to Coast adventure challenge race in early February. The 243km long race starts at Kumara on the West Coast and finishes at New Brighton, with cycle, run and kayak stages taking place over two days. Steve Gurney, nine time winner of the event, encouraged students chosen from the Services Academy to participate in the race. Training started last August with a lot of help from specialist volunteers who helped with running, cycling, endurance, and kayaking as well as nutrition. The team worked hard, even training during the weekends and Christmas. Two of the team were selected to do the race with other members as support. The school Kapahaka team welcomed our boys at the finish line. In a fantastic effort the boys came second in the tandem category out of about 780 participants. Bryce Adamson and Taitama Tukaki did extremely well as the youngest competitors of the Coast to Coast.

Mike Coleman

Helping others fight quake battles Reverend Mike Coleman speaks to Fraser Walker-Pearce about how he became an earthquake protest organiser, backpacking around the Americas, and being a school counsellor Hi Mike, tell me a little bit about yourself and your family. Well I’m 53-years-old. I’m married to Robyn, we’re about to have our 29th anniversary, she’s a medical scientist. I always say she’s the bright one. I have a Bachelor of Commerce and Accounting. I graduated from Canterbury University and the Christchurch Teachers College. I went on to teach at Waimea College, as well as St Bede’s College and Linwood High which is now Linwood College. I travelled overseas and backpacked around the Americas with my wife, then got a Bachelor of Theology in Auckland, and that was my training to become a minister. I actually grew up as a Roman Catholic and went to Xavier College, but later on became a Baptist before becoming Anglican. Wow that’s quite a background. And do you have any children? Yes, we have three kids, Matthew our eldest is 25, Simon is 19, and Emily is 11. Matthew is a product manager at an electronics firm, Simon is doing his second year studying chemistry at Canterbury University, and Emily is at Banks Avenue School. I also love cycling, going to the gym and having fun with the family. We also have one grandchild, Matthew and his partner Paris have a boy called Jack, who is three and he is just beautiful. He loves going to pre-school and kindy, loves all the boys stuff, all the trucks and trees, he’s just got heaps of energy.

Tell me about the Wider Earthquake Communities Action Network, how did it come about? It was started by three people in the community, myself as one of lead facilitators. Basically we were there to speak on behalf of people struggling with their house being in the red zone, or other land issues including settlements with insurers. It actually ended up becoming a quite strong activist group, and any negotiations we tried to have were basically shut down. So in the end they forced the group to protest more to get people’s issues heard. How successful were those protests? We had varying success, in the early days we showed some insurance companies up for what they were doing and what they really were. Some of the things they were offering was just wrong. The Government seemed to be happy to sit back and Canterbury be devastated. That really concerned many of us who were looking to help those in the communities. So do you think it’s a lot better today? No. Even as we look around today. (Earthquake Minister) Gerry Brownlee talks about the Margaret Mahy Family Playground more than anything else when he is talking about Christchurch’s success. It’s his No 1 defence for questions on the recovery. When you talk to homeowners you realise there are still thousands and thousands who are still locked in insurance battles and fighting for a fair deal. It was the reason WeCan was formed, to give a voice to

those who couldn’t. And what was your particular role in the whole setup? I was the media spokesman throughout that time, through two and a half years. During that time I was working full time as a counsellor and a reverend as well. So at the start of 2014 I kind of realised it was time to leave WeCan. From there I decided to focus more on the insurance companies and helping others get through their battles, and only wanted fairness for both sides. I never fought for more than a policy would honour, only what a policy offered. We just looked for a fair honouring. We weren’t trying to get people rich when they were only entitled to so much, and we’ve found that the insurance companies have respected that. There are no guiding rules to ensure insurance companies treat people fairly, which is ridiculous to be honest. Hasn’t the recovery gone on long enough already? Absolutely it has. The nature of this recovery for insurance companies is about spinning a line to get through the year, spreading the recovery over 20 years. To have private homeowners waiting for that long is plain disgraceful, it’s not about people it’s about ensuring the Government’s books are kept healthy. I just find it really interesting that we can paint all kinds of artwork throughout the city but can’t have all of our

Getting an understanding of what they’re going through is really important. I think I have the skills to help them, and I really enjoy seeing them feel empowered. I mean a lot of them are still finding themselves in life and gaining an awareness about the world around them, so finding their way in life can be quite difficult. I’ve been through a lot in my own life so I can kind of pass that wisdom on in a way. I can imagine in a job like that, you’d meet a lot of interesting people, anyone stand out in particular? There are a few that kind of

stand out. I remember I was helping some boys, one I seem to remember was at the age of nine, and he was caught up in his parents’ divorce. He was really quite an angry young man, and was really struggling with life in general, with his behaviour spinning out of control. In one session I asked him to paint a picture, and he painted what he said he always wanted to have, which was a Holden car and a girlfriend on his arm. That’s very cute. Yes, it was. After he left school he sent me a picture on Facebook of him and his girlfriend and his Ford car which he had saved up to get, and he said he was going to get a Holden. I thought that was amazing. I’ve been involved with counselling since 1995, when I helped start up the Delta Community Support Trust. I’m sure on the other side of that spectrum though, there would be times where someone is asking for help and you wouldn’t know how to help them? It can be quite disheartening if you find a student that you can’t work out the thing that they are telling you is wrong. And that can stem from a whole number of things. It’s very hard even for a youth mental health worker, because they can also really struggle to help someone like that. It can be very sad to see teens on medication for mental illnesses as well. The stress of the quakes has been immense for some kids. Especially those who are coming from homes that are still unsettled. We’ll see that for many years to come I think.

Mairehau high School

Encouraging ExcEllEncE in our community

Karina McGillivray-Seaton was one of our highest achievers in Year 13, 2015.

(Participation Based)

Last year she studied at the University of Canterbury on a school funded STAR course while also studying a full time Year 13 course at school. At UC, she studied Politics and Justice Ethics and Political and Social Philosophy and gained exceptional results – achieving A+ in both courses.

Harry Romana, Principal

Mairehau high School is working closely with the Ministry of education (Moe) to plan and develop a framework which provides our vision for delivering teaching and learning in the future and how that translates into a property solution that enables and supports an education vision and aspirations for our school community. Mairehau high School will work with an architect so that the design and detailed planning of property development at our school will: • reflect and support the character, values and aspirations of Mairehau high School • enhance the delivery of the curriculum • help to implement evidence-based teaching practices to improve outcomes for students The government’s investment in christchurch schools is most immediately a response to the earthquakes that have had a significant impact on schools and their communities. at the same time, it is important that the Mairehau high School community uses this unique investment wisely, to ensure re-building provides the best possible platform for effective teaching and learning into the future, informed by increasing knowledge about how children and young people learn and what they need to learn at school to prepare for their futures as connected, capable, life-long learners.

National Data

We are once again very pleased with our students’ NCEA results and congratulate all the parents and teachers who worked with our great students to enable them to obtain these results. The pass rates amongst our students who took a full NCEA course in 2015 exceeds the national data averages for all schools across the country. We also had a very pleasing number of students obtain merit and excellence endorsements in 2015. To attain a course endorsement, students must earn at least 50 credits at Merit or Excellence level in one year.

Mairehau vs Wild

i trust, when decisions about christchurch education are made, that schools are able to collaborate, share and access the curriculum, and provide opportunities for all learners. christchurch has an opportunity to create an education system which is world class, an education system which will enable every learner to have opportunities to succeed in their futures.

She also gained a scholarship in English in her final year at Mairehau High School, which is yet another fantastic achievement.

Only 3% of students in New Zealand are recognised and awarded this monetary scholarship. Students must demonstrate their ability to think critically and integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding and ideas to complex situations.

Student Executive team and Waka Leaders The end of last year saw the inauguration of the annual Student executive team and the newly formed Waka leaders team. We were fortunate enough to gain funding via red cross to include Waka ama as part of the student leadership development programme run by our Year 13 Dean, Mrs Mackenzie. Throughout last term, all eleven students met at 7am on Wednesday mornings to journey together in self and mutual discovery of our natural surroundings and the tikanga and our communities’ traditions relating to the waka. it was a first time for many in a vessel on the river and at sea. They faced their fears and showed true courage and commitment. haimona and Mr russell (lTl Phys ed) were their guides and taught them many life and leadership lessons to support them in their roles as school leaders for 2016. Well done team, and we are thrilled that you are off to a strong start leading the Mairehau high School student body in 2016.

The staff at Mairehau High School are pleased to provide able students with the opportunity to extend and challenge themselves through NCEA scholarships in most subject areas, with this work taking place out of normal class time. Karina is now studying towards a double degree in Law and Maori at the University of Canterbury.

Year 11 Education Outside the Classroom our Year 11 Physical education students were offered a series of eoTc opportunities at the very start of the term as a part of their first assessment for Ncea. Students attended aquatics sessions at graham condon Sport and recreation centre, followed by a climbing excursion at clip and climb in combination with a number of other movement activities on school grounds to identify factors that influenced their participation in different activities.

School leaders, 2016

it would be fair to say that the excursion at clip and climb was the biggest hit, with students fighting to complete as many challenges on the walls as they could, in the hope of gaining the most points for a free trip on the ‘giant drop’ challenge at the end.

all schools want students to access quality education outcomes, to access quality teaching, and quality learning. We wish our students to have opportunities which will enable them to become worthwhile, decent citizens of the world.

Kia ora and welcome to all readers. We are very busy at the moment addressing the question that has been recently asked by many: ” What is Mairehau high School going to look like in the future?”


School Production rehearsals are well under way for our school production this year. it is on Wednesday May 25 and Thursday May 26 at 7.30 pm in our School hall. Mark the date in your diary for an entertaining evening out and to see the wonderful talent amongst our students. adult tickets are $10 while students and children are $5.

The Ncea level 2 Physical education class embarked on their annual adventure called ‘Mairehau vs Wild’ from 16th-18th March. Thank goodness the purpose of this trip was to implement the risk management strategies that the students had predetermined, as this ensured we overcame some epic challenges including torrential rain and bumble bees!! We had a fantastic time at Mt oxford, hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and horse riding, and we look forward to 2017!

RUNNING HARD: New Brighton’s Georgia Lewis takes the ball upfield for the Kingfishers under 6 team on Saturday, during their grading matches. All 17 junior New Brighton rugby teams had their first hit-out of the new season on the weekend. The teams played shortened games to find out which grade they would best suit, which came with mixed results. The under 7s teams played grading games in a carnival style – three half games against different opponents. Most of these games finished in draws. In other grades, the under 9s gold team won 80-10, the under 11s won 77-0, and under 8s gold won 90-5. Below: The Kingfishers thank their opposition after one of their games. PHOTOS: RICHARD McLAREN

Young gymnasts off to Pacific championships

Four gymnasts are to compete in the Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships next weekend. The Christchurch School of Gymnastics team will be heading to Everett in Washington, to compete against gymnasts from around the world. This event serves as a warmup meet for the Rio Olympic test event which follows on April 16-19 in Brazil. Courtney McGregor, of Halswell, will use this opportunity as

her final hit-out before she travels to Rio to try and get a placing for women’s gymnastics. Courtney is looking forward to competing since she has learnt more difficult vault routines. “I am looking forward to competing my new second vault – I added 0.30 difficulty so now I will be more competitive,” she said. This is the first time Stella Ashcroft, 13, of Hoon Hay, will be joining the New Zealand

team at the competition. Stella earned her place by being the top-ranked junior international in the country. “I’m pretty nervous because it’s such a big event, I’ve been training for roughly 26-30 hours a week, but I’m excited to go with the other girls, they’re my close friends.” Mackenzie Slee and Charlotte Sullivan will also be competing and have spent all summer training for the championships.

An amazing breakthrough in supporting good health

ALL TOGETHER NOW: The New Zealand Ukulele Trust’s development team visited Chisnallwood Intermediate last week.

Chisnallwood hosts travelling ukelele group FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Chisnallwood Intermediate had a very special visit from a travelling group of ukulele playing students last week. New Zealand Ukulele Trust’s development squad travelled from Auckland to visit the school on Thursday. Head of music Judith Bell said the school was thrilled to have the team, which stayed with Chisnallwood, to help reduce costs while they performed around the city. She said it was a huge effort logistically to get the team down, as they are from all parts of the country, but seeing them taking workshops and performing to the school was worth it.

“Seeing them perform at places like the Cathedral and Orange Studios was great. A lot of their work is on YouTube, so they’re a big deal,” she said. Director of development squad Philip Griffin also travelled down with the team. Mrs Bell said the group held a workshop at the school on Thursday night, before playing at the school assembly on Friday morning, the Margaret Mahy Family Playground in the afternoon, and a live performance at Orange Studios at 7pm. On Saturday morning, the group performed and busked at the Cardboard Cathedral, before heading back to Auckland.

cientists are always on the lookout for solutions to solve medical problems and reduce suffering. They noted that NZ coastal Maori had far less arthritis and other inflammatory illnesses than inland Maori. This was apparently due to a diet especially high in fresh raw green-lipped mussels. Lyprinol contains a highly concentrated liquid extract of the green-lipped mussels from NZ waters. This mussel extract provides a spectrum of omega-3 fatty acids and other compounds that are highly concentrated and highly absorbable in the human body, due to Lyprinol’s patented extraction process as well as a specialised blending process that is so unique it is considered a trade secret. In fact, Lyprinol is the most potent omega-3 preparation available, being 200 to 300 times more potent than fish oil and with each softgel capsule being equivalent to seven to 10 fresh raw green-lipped mussels. It is also one of the purest and most toxin-free sources of omega-3 fatty acids on the market. Lyprinol, being a pure and natural product, is free of the potentially serious side effects of typical anti-inflammatory drugs. Many non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been linked with serious


health problems, including higher rates of heart attacks, strokes and blood clots. Omega-3 fatty acids, as found in Lyprinol, have been shown to reduce cardiovascular risks. These same omega-3 fatty acids have also been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes, help protect the eyes, support brain function as well as improve overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids are still one of our biggest deficiencies, with statistics showing very few people obtain enough of them. Lyprinol provides one of the finest, purest and most absorbable form of omega-3 available. Although Lyprinol supports blood flow and circulation, it is not a blood thinner and does not cause increased bleeding or haemorrhaging. Lyprinol is truly an amazing breakthrough in supporting good health and reducing inflammation that has been implicated in disease progression and the ageing process. Clinical research shows Lyprinol provides consistent and repeatable results without any known side effects. Lyprinol and further information is available from the natural health advisers at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Rd, New Brighton. Phone 388 5757. We are always happy to help!


Lyprinol contains an incredibly pure & potent extract of N.Z. green-lipped mussels. (Each capsule equivalent to 7-10 raw green-lipped mussels) This extract provides omega-3 fatty acids & other compounds in a highly absorbable form that has been shown to be 200-300 times more beneficial than fish oil. Lyprinol contains nutrients that are critical to control inflammation that are not found in fish oil.



Scientific Studies Show Lyprinol: • Supports & maintains joint function & mobility • Effectively supports a reduction in swelling, pain, inflammation & stiffness

New research on ginkgo biloba excites researchers


or decades scientists believed brain damage with age, after a stroke or injury was irreversible and brain neurons could not be repaired. In more recent times, new research has shown that neurons can grow back with the right conditions and that a special extract of gingko biloba (EGb-761 or Tebonin) has been clinically found to assist in this. The implications for stroke recovery are obvious, but researchers also know many of us suffer from undetected “micro-strokes” that over a period of time slowly reduce our cognitive function. Tebonin is prescribed worldwide as a natural supportive agent for a healthy brain and cognitive function. It supports healthy mental performance, concentration, focus, alertness, motor function and to help with many conditions, including tinnitus (ringing and noise in the ears), vertigo and normal balance. Tebonin improves microcirculation and helps the blood flow reach those critical places it needs to get to. It is a potent antioxidant and makes the red blood cells more pliable and capillary walls

more flexible. Tebonin is one of the most widely studied and researched herbal products in the world and is the only ginkgo biloba extract manufactured via a patented multi-step extraction process. Each small tablet contains a highly concentrated 50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic clinical dose without having to take a large amount of the herb. Of 25 ginkgo biloba products on the market and tested by a major medical journal, only Tebonin passed all five of the test requirements. Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements and the rest didn’t pass more than three out of five requirements. Tebonin is the only ginkgo biloba extract shown to activate all areas of the brain and is considered the gold standard in ginkgo. Tebonin has been trusted by millions of consumers worldwide for over 30 years, with more than 8,000,000 tablets consumed each day. Tebonin and further information is available from the natural health advisers at Marshall’s Health and Natural Therapy in New Brighton. Phone 388 5757. We are always happy to help!

Living a Healthy Life Your best home in the city,

Lady Wigram Village

Six-week course

Lady Wigram Retirement Village was officially opened a few short months ago and residents are already settled and feeling at home. About 19 of the first 50 villas are occupied, with a number of others under offer.


six-week course designed to teach self-management skills for people living with any chronic health condition, such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, depression, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, mental health conditions, etc. This course does not offer disease-specific information, and is designed to work alongside other forms of treatment, rather than replace them. The course is run in a group setting for up to 15 participants. Support people and carers are also welcome to attend. The course is based around group work and interactive problem solving sessions, and covers topics applicable to all chronic health conditions,


such as: • Dealing with frustration, fatigue and pain • Appropriate exercise, use of medications and healthy eating • Communicating effectively with others, including family, friends and health professionals • Using the power of your mind effectively Sessions run once per week for six weeks. Participants are asked to commit to attend all six sessions. Participants receive a supporting book valued at $35 to keep at the end of the course. Refer to the accompanying advertisement for details of the next LHL courses.

livia Cleave, operations manager, says the feedback is fabulous and everyone is enjoying their new community, making friends, even a couple of gardens are flourishing in raised beds. While we await the construction of the community centre, which is expected to open in April, residents can enjoy social events which include bowls through to high teas in a converted villa. With a short stroll to The Landing, the retail hub of Wigram Skies subdivision or a short drive to the Hornby Workingmen’s Club, Hornby Mall and the city, The Lady Wigram Retirement is well situated. Foundations have begun for the next 51 villas, expected to be ready in January 2017. Owner John Tooby says the aim is for the village to be the best in the city, offering an environment second to none. When completed, the village will include

101 villas, 73 apartment and 100 care beds, including rest home, hospital and dementia care facilities. Golden Healthcare provides general aged care at the Golden Age Retirement Village, the original facility acquired by John Tooby in 1985, and at the Brookhaven Retirement Village.

Effective treatment for many types of pain


omplementary medicine is becoming increasingly sought after in New Zealand as people become aware of the many different methods of treating pain and ill health that are available here. Christchurch-based Chinese health practitioner Lan Xiao has developed a method of treatment, which she says has as an immediate affect on a wide variety of pains and health conditions. It is known as ‘acupuncture without needles’. Lan describes it as being similar to reflexology in that the problem area on the body is determined through pressure, but is much more accurate. Trained as a medical practitioner in China, Lan came to New Zealand in 1992 and began practising acupuncture in 1995. From that discipline she created her acupuncture without needles, and uses it to treat people of all ages with many different types of pain in all parts of the body. This can include arthritic pain, MS, and pain from injury. “For example, the treatment has been very successful for people who have painful joints caused by arthritis,” Lan says. Acupuncture without needles is also effective in restoring energy levels,

she says. “As people age their energy is reduced, and this can lead to other health problems. The acupuncture without needles treatment is like the body’s battery being charged up again, so their energy levels are restored, which in turn helps overcome their health problems.” Lan also uses it to treat depression and anxiety, and says it can help with addiction problems as well. “After the treatment the person has no cravings – because it treats the cause of the addiction.” She says the results are immediate, though people may need several treatments, depending on the extent of their health problem, and while it is slightly painful for few moments, everyone can tolerate it. Lan Xiao’s website, www. drlansreflexologynetwork.co.nz, includes videos of people whose health problems have been overcome after receiving the treatment. Her clinic is located at 108 Sawyers Arms Road, and her hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12pm to 5pm. To discuss your health issues or make an appointment, phone 323 4168 or 027 231 88388.

SmoothAir offers a wide range of ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting for fans, for both the commercial and domestic markets. They have an extensive range of fans and ventilation components in-store but they can also provide innovative solutions tailored to differing requirements. VEnTiLATion This includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building. it is one of the most important factors for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in buildings.

re you struggling with the heat of Summer or wanting to get organised for Winter? With the ever changing weather patterns, heat pumps have the flexibility of being able to heat and cool which is an advantage no other appliance can offer. This represents great value for your investment as you can use it all year round. The team at Enviro Master Ltd can help keep you cool this Summer either at home or work. Enviro Master supplies, installs and services all the leading brands including Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daikin. This means our team can show you which system and brand will best suit your needs. We currently have savings up to $600 off the recommended retail price on selected models. Would you like to maximise the number of days you can use your swimming pool? Heating your pool can do this and one of the most cost effective ways is with a water heat pump. Enviro Master Ltd can supply, install and service you swimming pool heat pump providing you with a comfortable, extended swimming season. Servicing your heat pump is extremely important to ensure that it is working

as effectively and efficiently as possible resulting in a healthy, hygienic heat pump, lower power bills and greater comfort. But beware, not all cleaning companies are equal. We are constantly hearing of people being charged huge amounts for servicing and all they are getting is a heat pump clean. We at Enviro Master, are qualified engineers and therefore are able to fully test and diagnose any problems you may or may not be aware of with your heat pump. Also, as we are associated with all major brands, we are able to repair these under warranty if they are still within the warranty period. it is important to remember, when selecting an installer, the manufacturer’s warranty does not cover the installation and consumers could be responsible for any repair or damage caused to the system due to poor installation. Enviro Master’s five-star installation guarantee ensures correct installation, and a demonstration so customers have an understanding on how it will best meet their needs. For a free in home consultation, call Enviro Master on 366 0525 or visit our showroom at 41A Shakespeare Rd, Waltham, Christchurch.

environment in which to live and work. in case of poor or insufficient air intake from outside, the oxygen content decreases, humidity and dustiness levels increase. if exhaust ventilation is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air, smells, humidity and harmful substances are not removed. Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel drowsy. invisible harmful substances like a high content of dust and tobacco smoke are harmful and can cause various diseases. Even bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the nervous system. in summer, it’s easy to open windows for cross ventilation, however as winter approaches, we start to shut up out houses to trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can decline. it is therefore very important to ensure good air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

OUTSTANDING HARPSICHORDIST and founder of the Les Talens Lyriques, Christophe Rousset, performs at the Charles Luney Auditorium, 12 Winchester Street, Merivale, this Sunday at 5pm with his along with his ensemble. Christophe Rousset is an internationally renowned harpsichordist and describes his instrument as a time machine, “it really takes you to another era.” The concert is the first time the other leading members of his ensemble, Gilone Gaubert-Jacques on violin, Gabriel Grosbard on violin, and Atsushi Sakai on viola da gamba, come to our shores.

Presented by Chamber Music New Zealand, the ensemble of world-class French music guides is set to transport audiences back 300 years. With a varied programme of French suites, sonatas and character pieces, Rousset and his musicians will take you back to Versailles – to the dazzlingly elegant and indulgent court of Louis XIV, the Sun King. This concert includes an Audio Description service for patrons with low vision. A pre-concert talk takes place one hour prior to the concert – it is free to attend and will be at the concert venue. For ticketing and more information go to www.chambermusic.co.nz
