BACK ON THE AIRWAVES

Radio New Brighton relaunched – and from the footpath

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Radio New Brighton has been relaunched, but instead of broadcasting from a caravan, they have decided to hit the streets. The station was back on the airwaves on Friday, after a four-year hiatus. But instead of going back to a caravan they used to use for their broadcasts, presenter Chris Diack decided to use New Brighton as his recording booth. “We’re out here now, with the locals. We could be here one day, sitting in a coffee shop the next, and somewhere else the next,” he said. The show’s simple set-up allowed them to broadcast from wherever they were. “We’re set-up here at the New Brighton Project at the moment, but I expect we’ll be roving around in the next week or so,” Mr Diack said. After the earthquakes, Mr Diack took the radio equipment to bars and community centres in the New Brighton area. Mr Diack said anyone was allowed to “jump

INSIDE:

on the mic” and have a go. “We just set it up on a stage with a microphone and told people if they had a talent or wanted to play music or sing a song, then they should go for it,” he said. Mr Diack said a lot of people used that as an outlet for stress during the months directly after the February 2011 earthquake. Mr Diack is a Redwood resident, but makes the trip to the seaside every morning, because he’s “sick” of the treatment its residents have received after the earthquakes. “New Brighton tended to be getting the rough end of the stick when it came to support from the city council and community boards, so we just felt that giving it publicity will get it more attention,” he said. If you’re interested to hear what Mr Diack and the rest of the team at Radio New Brighton are talking about, tune in to 87.9FM, or in Aranui on 88.3FM.

Green light for RSA expansion FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The New Brighton RSA received another post-earthquake boost when it got the tick to go ahead with a games room. The New Brighton Returned and Services’ Association has been fighting the city council for a resource consent for the games room for the past 18 months. But on Friday morning, New Brighton RSA secretary and manager Garry House received an email from the city council, telling him they had the green light. The city council did not want to grant the consent because it said there was insufficient parking. It wanted 20 car parking spaces. Mr House said it has a free shuttle which takes up to eight patrons to and from the club, so they shouldn’t have to have more parking. “The main stumbling block is that they wanted us to have extra car parking. We don’t have the land and we don’t support drink driving, so we supply a free shuttle, which seats nine people, to pick up and return members and guests to their homes,” he said. Mr House said that it would

The RSA is paying for the games room out of its own budget, which has been overseen by Mr House. He said the original cost for the room has gone out the window.

“We had budgeted for $30,000 to be spent on this project. But now because of this (resource consent battle), we are over $40,000,” he said. The games room can now go ahead, but there is no time frame yet, as to when it will be ready.

GREEN LIGHT FOR CORRECTIONS FACILITY The Department of Corrections has been given the go-ahead by the city council to begin building a new facility of Pages Rd. The single-storey building will have a gross floor area of 1402.8 sq m, including garaging and storage. The facility will serve as a community-based corrections building, which includes administrative and noncustodial services associated with community work and community corrections services. It will be built next to the Nga Hau E Wha National Marae, on 242 Pages Rd. BLANKET BANK BARE The New Brighton Blanket Bank is in desperate need of more donations before winter.

Discuss future of red zone New Brighton Union Parish co-ordinating minister Mark Gibson talks about the upcoming residential red zone meeting tomorrow. The public meeting to discuss the future of the residential red zone is for everyone with an interest in the future of the zone. So community groups championing creative projects, ex red-zoners, people from neighbouring suburbs, or anyone else who has ideas about what could happen there should come along. The meeting is being hosted by Wainoni Methodist Church where I am doing transitional ministry. We have a huge interest in the future of the RRZ because we are located within it. Our hope is to be there long-term. The meeting will be held tomorrow, from 7.30pm to 9pm. We’ve worked closely with city councillor Glenn Livingstone in organising the

meeting. The agenda is very simple. I will speak briefly as the MC about the background to the meeting, the wide and diverse interest range of creative projects that have emerged from the community postquake, and the setting up of Regenerate Christchurch. I will also talk about the driving instructions given to the chairman Andre Lovatt – by the earthquake minister and the Mayor. Aspects of this letter have raised questions in the community about the process that is going to be used to determine future uses of the red zone land. From there in groups and then in plenary we’ll look at the issues people have with the instructions given in this letter, and then at where people would like to see the process going from here. This is an opportunity for the community to give Mr Lovatt driving instructions as well. He will be there, and will respond to what is said near the end. It is critically important that the community continue to

SOAP BOX

Lyn Willyams – An unbelievably stupid response from the city council. If it is no-man’s-land it belongs to everyone and that’s where the sculptures should be placed. The concept drawing looked beautiful. Wake up council. We need some beauty in the east. It must be so frustrating for all those folk who come up with great ideas and are then told it’s not possible, especially when it obviously is.

front-foot the RRZ process, rather than be reacting to what is being determined higher up. The Crown is the legal owner of these lands but emotionally, morally and spiritually they belong to the communities of the east, and the groups and organisations who have invested hugely in developing exciting plans for future use. It is vital that there is huge recognition of this investment. What we hope to come out of this meeting or conversation is a transparent and fair process around the decision-making determining future uses of the RRZ. We also hope to see a strong collaborative relationship between the community and central and local government as this process unfolds.

appropriate piece of artwork on a piece of land that nobody owns. No doubt the city council maintains the land on either side of the approaches to the bridge – who else would? Given that, then why not use the land and maybe the artwork would become a tourist destination. After all the city council are looking for draw cards to revitalise New Brighton.

Graham and Jan Edwards – The spot suggested near the Bridge St bridge is ideal. It will bring joy to hundreds of people a day. Rather than standing in the way of the idea the city council should do its job and find a solution to the “no-man’sland’’ issue and move onto more positive community advising to help the people of Christchurch.

Grace Mann – Read the article in the Pegasus Post. Think the concept of what the sculpture would look like is great. Seems a sensible idea to put it on land that no one owns. Do the godwits care? They just like a good-feeding ground. It will be a great introduction to South New Brighton to have the sculpture by the Bridge St bridge.

Wayne Hawker – It is totally unbelievable that the city council condemns the erection of the godwit sculptures on the southeastern entrance of the Bridge St bridge. Reasoning that the land does not belong to anyone. What a great opportunity to construct an interesting and very

Small buses in service FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Smaller buses are on the way for the Burwood Hospital to New Brighton route. Starting with eight new vehicles, the Red Bus initiative saw the first small Mercedes-Benz City 45 bus go into service on route 535, from Eastgate to Rapaki last week. ​The next shipment to arrive will also serve that route, and the remaining six will be put straight into service on other routes upon their arrival from Germany in June and July. They will take the place of bigger buses, which are 11m long and can carry up to 55 passengers. BurwoodPegasus Community Board member Linda Stewart (left) said the new buses were “exactly what the community needed” and had been waiting for. “It was ridiculous seeing great big empty buses rattling down the roads. It shook the houses a lot, too. So this is exactly what we wanted,” she said.

NEW BUSES: These 17-seater buses are on their way to replace those currently used on the 135 route.

The new 17-seater buses can take up to 22 passengers, will be more cost effective and are accessible to the elderly and disabled. They can also take two bikes on the front. An Environment Canterbury spokeswoman said the only changes made are to the vehicles. “The change is just to vehicle size, the timetable won’t change,” she said. The spokeswoman said the

changes were not made due to a lack of patronage. A report in 2014 showed that bus travel had declined from 5.1 per cent of people in 2006 to 3.7 per cent in 2013. ECan overhauled its bus network in response to earthquake migration in December 2014. Ms Stewart said it was a combined effort by residents groups. “I hope this works. If people say this is what they wanted and we’ve worked to get it and

ECan have put the pressure on their contractors to bring in the new buses, then I hope it works. But I am thrilled to bits,” she said. The Red Bus group will have the smaller buses replace their larger predecessors on the 107, 108, 135 and 145 routes over the coming months.

Elizabeth Challies

Puzzle expert in the zone Elizabeth Challies, 34, was recently crowned the 2016 New Zealand open vaki puzzle and sudoku champion. She bounced back from narrowly losing last year by seven points to register a record score of 14,195. She speaks to Andrew King Elizabeth, you are the New Zealand sudoku champion, how does that feel? It feels pretty good. I was really pleased with my score because I did better than last year. I was really in the zone that day. So it is all about the personal score rather than beating other players? Pretty much. I think the score matters more as I am trying to beat myself. I like to see improvement in everything I do. So when you found out you had won how did that feel? I actually thought there might have been a problem with the website when I saw my score. But then I realised I had beaten my last year’s score by quite a bit so I got pretty excited. Last year I placed second, I was extra determined this year as I had lost last year by the tiniest of margins. What did you win? The New Zealand Puzzle Association is posting a medal and a shirt to me for being the New Zealand champion. Tell me what it is like to compete in a sudoku tournament?

It is a really friendly sort of competition because everyone is really competing with themselves. It is online and you can have as many goes as you want so there really is no pressure. I get the puzzle and just dive straight in, then it is just me and the puzzle. How did you get into sudoku? I have always loved puzzles. I like to try all them out and they are so accessible so I can get them anywhere. I have been into them since I was a little kid. What made you want to start competitively doing sudoku? I found the website when I was poking around on the internet, did a few for fun then saw there was a competition and said might as well have a go. Do you win prize money for the events? That would be nice, but no. It is all about personal satisfaction for me anyway, I just want to beat my last score. What was the first puzzle you did? I can’t remember what I got into first. I know I started off

with puzzle books that have a variety of different ones in it to challenge myself. Where did she go to school? I went to Burnside High. Tell me a bit about how school was for you? I quite enjoyed school. I was quite motivated and kept my head down.

SATISFIED: Elizabeth Challies is New Zealand’s sudoku champion.

Were you good at maths at school? At high school I was good at maths and science. But at primary school I was pretty good at English and literacy in general. But there was a switch in high school I am not sure how that came about. Tell me a bit about your friends? We were not sporty at all although a few of us did get into ballet. I love movies and coffee all the usual. Does being able to think logically to solve puzzles help you with your job? Well, I work at the post office

so it doesn’t really help all that much. Thinking logically really helps me with puzzles but it gets a bit much sometimes so I have taken up abstract painting to pull myself in a new direction. Abstract painting, that’s a bit different from puzzles? Yes, it is but I love it. I like making a mess with the paint on a canvas. It is just something a bit different. Do you have any other hobbies? Painting is the main other hobby aside from puzzles. I also like going to the gym and I am part of a writers’ group. What do you do with the

writers’ group? The writers are a group of people interested in writing and reading. It is a lot of fun and I have met a few good people in it. Speaking of friends, do you get them coming to you for sudoku pointers? Not really. Most people say I can’t do those but they have never attempted to do one. I tell them to chose an easy one and give it a go. You never know you could be good at them. Have you ever been completely stumped by a sudoku puzzle? Yes, I have. I find sometimes when I get stuck I put it away then come back to it and then I find I can work it out quite easy. Sometimes you look and look and look and can’t see what the pattern is, when that happens it is best to put it away and come back to it later while you mind is fresh. Was this year’s score your best ever? Yes 14,195 is my best score ever. It is tallied by a combination of time and points. You lose a point for every second you spend solving a puzzle, gain points for a correct placement and lose points for a mistake. At the end of the thirty minutes the four highest scores from solved puzzles are added together and that is your championship score. You can chose the size and difficultly of the puzzle, bigger ones get you more points so you work out which one will you will able to complete in the time allowed. Now you are the New Zealand champion, will you try be the world champion? I hadn’t thought of that. I would have to look into it.

Youth offenders to benefit from bicycle repair project Prisoners may be given a bicycle on their release, thanks to a new youth offender project. A repair workshop has been set up in a disused shed at Christchurch Men’s Prison, which has youth offenders repairing old bicycles. Once they are ready they are given to released prisoners who may be in need of the most basic means of transport in their early days of release. The idea came from Youth Unit staff who have been coming up with innovative ideas to provide the youth prisoners with activities. Principal Corrections Officer Gary Smallridge said the focus of the project is to identify ways to keep youth engaged in education and learning. “We aim to provide activities that not only occupy the young prisoner’s time but also add to their learning, with tasks that a typical young person would be interested in,” he said. The project is proving to be a hit with the youth offenders, said youth unit corrections

Community centre opened FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

The Aranui Wainoni Community Centre was officially opened with a stirring haka from Aranui High School students. A total of $5.9 million was set aside for the centre, including a $450,000 contribution from Lions Clubs International Foundation and $1 million from the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust. The 967 sq m building has a hall with a half basketball court, retractable seating, indoor and outdoor stages, sports changing rooms, kitchen facilities, and meeting and office spaces. It will provide a place for the local community to once again gather for cultural, recreational and educational activities and events. Aranui Primary School principal Mike Allen said the new facility is “perfect” for the community. “Outstanding, there was a great turnout for a great building. It has exceeded expectations,” he said.

The facility was opened on Thursday by Mayor Lianne Dalziel, Lions Clubs International Foundation liaison Digby Prosser, board of trustee member Nigel Jeny, and Aranui Community Trust chairman Rob Davidson. Ms Dalziel said the Aranui community will “breathe life” into the new facility. “The spirit of those who brought life to the two halls that preceded it are imbued within these walls and the Aranui community will breathe life into this wonderful facility once more,” she said. Pupils from Avondale, Wainoni and Aranui Primary Schools led the crowd in a waiata before students from the Aranui High School Academy performed the haka and the building was blessed.

New entrants Banks Avenue School in Dallington have started the second term with five new faces. Peppa, Timothy, Paige, Zade and Aaniya all started, and all are looking forward to learning.

SHIRLEY’S MIHI WHAKATAU: Shirley Primary School recently had a mihi whakatau, or speech of greeting, which is held on the first Friday of each new term to welcome new staff and students to the school. They sang the national anthem, the kapa haka group performed, and pupils and staff created a piece of art for their respective houses. The artworks will be displayed on the fence across the front of the school on Shirley Rd. To end the day, pupils placed stones in the foundations of the school’s new building.

Cycle safety for children FLEUR MEALING

Email photos to fraser.walker@starmedia.kiwi

A cycle safety programme has made a return to the eastern suburbs after a five year hiatus due to the February 2011 earthquake. Rawhiti School pupils took park in a city council Cycle Safe programme last week. Cycle Safe is a programme that teaches school children the basics of cycling, but also gives them confidence to cycle on busy streets. City council cycle safety edu-

cation co-ordinator Sarah Cooper said it was important children were taught cycle safety, even more so post-earthquake. She said it is a skill that applies to all aspects of transport and taught pupils how to “approach roads appropriately” instead of avoiding cycling as a bunch. A study by the New Zealand Transport Authority found that cyclists were the second most likely people to die on roads between 2009 and 2013.

Disclaimer: The views, opinions & assumptions expressed in this advertising feature article are solely of the author, Bryan Staples, Earthquake Services.

If you ever doubted what I and others have been saying about EQC and insurers, then the last few weeks has seen them laid bare. • EQC says it is still less than one third of its way through the 6000+ botched repair jobs it has accepted, as new requests continue to pile up. • The High Court ordered a major insurer, which signed a contract for a couple’s rebuild and then baulked, to pay the settlement in full. • EQC wants to turn off the tap on second time repairs. • Insurers cry crocodile tears over the time EQC has taken to put properties over cap. • A landmark agreement saw EQC confirm that repairs must be to ‘when new’. • As a result, EQC and insurers will now face a surge of new claims, possibly as many as existing claims • This may include previous, unfair settlements It’s now 6 winters of discontent. You should not still have to be battling EQC or your insurer. You should not be fighting to get shoddy repairs assessed properly and repaired to what your insurance policy promised. Earthquake Services is New Zealand’s leading advocacy service and litigation funder on behalf of people like you who don’t have the resources to fight injustice. We take all the risks and charge you nothing until we settle your claim.* • Are you someone who gave in and cash-settled only to now realise you can’t afford to repair your house to ‘when new” condition. • Does your house still shake after the repairs have been done? • Do you live in a multi-unit dwelling where you are told to accept what other residents are accepting when your insurance policy offers more? • Not happy with your repairs? Or just want them checked to make sure they comply with building standards. • Have you ever looked under your house? We will. Earthquake Services is there to fight for you and we take all the risk. Here’s what some of our clients have to say: “We have been mistreated by our insurance company, bullied by their lawyers and pushed to breaking point. Bryan has helped us every step of the way... He is always available and always willing to help. He calmly talks us through our concerns and sends us on our way feeling confident and supported. Thanks again,” Jerry & Aimee, New Brighton “To Bryan Staples and crew - a big thank you for believing in the fact that New Zealanders like myself were to be really tested beyond reason returning to NZ to set up a business … You surrounded yourself with people who stood for justice, and positive accurate reporting, something quite rare in today’s world…” Business owner, Christchurch.

“We went to Bryan and Earthquake Services because we didn’t have energy, the resources, mental or physical, to try and sort this out. We had nowhere else to turn to. We have put our faith and gone through step by step with Bryan. He has calmed us down and taken this on for us. We want our home repaired or replaced – that’s what our policy says.” Gavin, Mairehau Whether you live in Mairehau, Marshlands or Merivale we will fight for you. Even EQC is now saying if you feel short-changed, you should commission your own engineering reports, builders’ estimates, legal advice and other expert findings, then bring these to EQC and request a reBryan Staples, CEO, Earthquake Services. examination. Of course EQC knows many people won’t know how to start this process, let alone be able to afford to do it. And when you do start, more often than not they say ‘We don’t agree and’ you are back to square one. We don’t take take ‘No’ for an answer We get the evidence and you pay nothing to us until settlement* • If your home is damaged, awaiting repair or demolition, come & talk to us. • If you are living in a home with shoddy repairs, we will get the More Dodgy Repai repairs your policy provides for. rs • Please don’t blame builders for dodgy repairs; blame the poor assessments by EQC and insurers who refused to budge even when builders told them the repairs wouldn’t work. We will be there for you throughout – providing advice and support. We won’t promise overnight success. Our courts have at least another five years of earthquake-related claims to resolve. Don’t be the last one through the door. I do advise you to act now to ensure EQC & your insurer repair your home to “when new” condition. Dr Michael Naylor, senior lecturer in finance and insurance at Massey University gives this warning. “Treasury will have to rapidly rework its estimates. They must be hoping that most Canterbury quake claimants do not realise the implications of EQC’s statement… because EQC has chosen to refuse to admit it was wrong, it has decided to phrase the agreement as merely reaffirming what it is already doing. This means that the concession is unlimited, as all prior claimants can ask for a review. This expands its liability hugely… The only way EQC can restrict the fall out is to play hard-ball with any claimants who ask for a review.” My team at Earthquake Services is ready to fight for you. You don’t have to take it anymore. The time to act is now. Bryan Staples CEO Earthquake Services

Hospitality department

our hospitality department has a new edition – a 3 head barista machine. Senior students who have achieved their barista certificate are now able to ‘fine tune’ their skills and use the staff as their coffee ‘guinea pigs’ – much to the delight of the staff! Libby (Year 13) is one of our Barista students, along with TJ. These two students are responsible for making the coffee, keeping the café clean and tidy, and making sure supplies are kept up to date.

Diana Isaac Retirement Village

easter saw a group of students pay a surprise visit to Diana isaac retirement Village.

our Senior outdoor education class last week completed an epic adventure - the St James Walkway. This 67km tramp, which is classified as an advanced walking track through the stunning and temperamental lewis Pass, is generally completed over 5 days. With a poor weather forecast looming, the team completed the tramp in just 4 days, and avoided the showers (aka torrential rain) by having a day off - an awesome day was spent doing assessments, Pilates and having deep and meaningful conversations with each other in the hut! it was the experience of a lifetime, and we all have many memories to carry with us on our continuing learning journey in the outdoors! Mrs Michele ring is our receptionist here at school. This is the 2nd year that she has been on the tramp with us. Michele made comment that although the weather was very much against us, and everyone was tired and sore from completing the walk a day earlier, it was the support and friendship of the students that stood out for her above everything else.

Many of the residents were treated to the surprise of an easter egg, and every resident received a happy easter card in their letter box. it was a great way to finish our end of Term 1.

What’s been happening at our school??

Deloitte GROW is a free programme for Year 11 and Year 12 students that focuses on the different ways to grow money. This programme provides our young people with real world, hands-on learning on what it’s like to successfully transfer knowledge, skills and creativity into ways to make money. our Year 11 and 12 students were divided into teams, with each team receiving $5.00. each team then had to use the $5.00 in such a way that they would double (or more) the money by starting up various business ventures. These included car washing, baking and cooking. By the end of the programme, the money raised was donated to various charities. one charity which benefited from the programme was the SPca. We’re building 2 weather stations – we recently applied for a STeM grant through the caltex “Fuel Your School” initiative, which sees schools receive funding towards improving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Our application was accepted and we were granted $4500.00

We are certainly putting the money to good use - building 2 weather stations, which is a collaborative project between Digital Technologies, Design and Visual communication, Materials Technology and a contributing school. it is scheduled to be completed by the end of term 3.

Board of Trustees Student Report, 17th May 2016 Roadshow - During week 2 and 3 of this term, groups of students headed out to their former schools to promote our school to the students. This was a good chance for students heading into high school next year to get a good feel of what Mairehau has to offer and to feel the enthusiastic energies coming from the students who attend.

GaTE Conference (Gifted & Talented) – The senior gaTe students attended an all day conference on Friday 13 May. The conference covered subjects such as ‘are our mind and brain separate things, what is real, and if the existence of god can be known’. Despite the brain sizzling topics students enjoyed the conference. one student commented that it ‘was very intellectually stimulating and that it really makes you think’. University of Otago Trip – on the 8th to the 10th May a group of six senior students went on a trip to Dunedin to look around the university. Mrs MacKenzie and Mr lake travelled with them. The students were able to walk around freely and sit in on open lectures, course presentations and go on laboratory tours in the subject areas that interested them. The accommodation halls were also open to the public, and tours were offered to give our students a better sense of the environment they could choose to live in next year. The trip was a really good bonding exercise and helped them make some big decisions for their futures. Executive Trip – The student executives, our school leaders, went on a trip to Wellington during the 16th to the 18th of May to attend a leadership conference. This has taught them valuable life skills in communication and being an effective leader figure with a group. Some students were slightly nervous, being on a plane and a train for the first time, but were generally excited about the opportunity. Careers Expo – on the 12th of May the Year 12 and 13 cohorts went to horncastle arena to wander around the careers expo. Different universities, polytechnics, and courses had set up stands for the students to go to so they were able to get more information on the subject areas that interest them. The event was helpful for students, and they managed to get a bunch of free pens, which is always a bonus. Kasey Stevens Year 13, student representative on the Board of Trustees

Year 9’s engaged in various activities

School Musical Production We are producing our musical production PoPSTarS on May 25 and 26 at 7.30pm in our school hall. a group of enthusiastic students and staff have been rehearsing after school and at the weekend for the last two to three months, so this promises to be great entertainment. We would love you to join us in a night of toe tapping good times with the best music from the 90s. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and students, and are available at our school resource room where eFTPoS is available. Thanks for supporting us.

Geography trip to Redcliffs School Students in geography level 1 and 2 have been learning about a contemporary geographic issue. The context this year focused on the proposed closure of redcliffs School. Following education Minister hekia Parata’s decision to close redcliffs School, a campaign to keep redcliffs School open was started. This included a petition signed by 6500 people who oppose the Minister’s decision. on Monday 9th May our students visited the redcliffs School site and Board Member andrea Wylie spoke to the students outside the school. She described the position of the board and the journey that the school, its students and the redcliffs community have been through since the February 2011 earthquakes. The field trip allowed students to see the environment first hand and examine their own perspective on the issue. Ms Wackwitz – teacher of Geography

Following in father’s footsteps FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Shirley baseball player Nikau Pouaka-Grego has been named the first ever under 13 New Zealand player of the year. Baseball New Zealand named Nikau, 11, as the award’s recipient during its first national awards evening, held on May 14 in Auckland. He is the son of Todd Grego, a former Australian baseball representative, who also played for New Zealand in softball. Canterbury Baseball Association president Brian Hemera said Nikau “starred” in last year’s New Zealand Ripken All Star under 13 team, when he was only 10 years old. “He has been selected again for the 2016 Ripken team this year, to be held in July and August,” he said. Nikau was unsure he would be picked for this year’s New Zealand Ripken side, and said it was “painful” waiting for the call from the coaches. “Yeah it was exciting to be picked, but pretty painful waiting for that call. I kept in contact with quite a few guys who all got in, and they let me know when they got in,” he said.

TALENT: Nikau Pouaka-Grego, 11, recently won the under 13 New Zealand player of the year award. He has been picked to represent New Zealand in a second tournament this July.

Mr Grego coaches his son’s under 13 club team, the Christchurch Redbirds, based in Parklands, as well as the under 15s side, but said schooling is the number one priority for his son. “We really do put pressure on him for school work and things like that as well. That’s his number one, and baseball is a back-up plan . . . but absolutely baseball it’s his number one love. He wants to go to a college

in America and then turn pro,” he said. Nikau said if he had the choice of American colleges to attend, he would go for the big ones. “Yes, I want to go to some of the top colleges, like UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), LSU (Louisiana State University), or Vanderbilt University, Virginia. It’s been my dream since I was five,” he said.

RECORD BREAKERS: Melanie Cameron (right) in action during a match last year.

Football records broken FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

It was a record-breaking weekend of football for Coastal Spirit, which saw more than 20 goals scored in a single match. Coastal’s women’s premier league side played away at Waimak United’s ground, Kendall Park, on Saturday. They overwhelmed the home side and ran away with the game, scoring a record 21 goals to Waimak’s three. Coastal women’s head coach Alana Gunn said by the end of the match, the score line was “irrelevant” because of the conditions the match was being played in. “The game was quite onesided and that was in a big

part due to the howling wind and the freezing cold weather, it was not nice conditions to play in. The team dominated against a young side that has lots of potential. Experience was a key indicator of the score line,” she said. Coastal are now top of the league ladder, sitting on 24 points from nine games. The result broke the club’s record for the biggest winning margin. Gunn said the scoreline was “a shame” to see in the women’s league. “We were the dominant side, and we could’ve scored less or more, the score became irrelevant. It’s a bit of a shame to have these kind of score lines.

Mel Cameron got player of the day for her work rate and leadership,” she said. Meanwhile, the men’s premier side also broke a record on the weekend. The team played against Halswell at ASB Football Park on Saturday, and took the game 3-0. It was Coastal’s sixth straight win, a record for the team. The win sees Coastal solidify the second spot on the table, and are now just a point behind leaders Cashmere Technical. The side plays eighth-placed Western AFC this Saturday at ASB Football Park. Kick-off is at 2.45pm.

It seems to have taken forever but this week I finally left for work with ice on the truck windscreen. We’re only a fortnight from winter proper and from here on I’d expect the climate will reflect that. This means all those things that colder weather bring us can be expected to happen.  Things like seeing walls or wood sheds burnt down because someone has taken the ash out in the wrong type of container and left it in the wrong place.  Things like electric blankets left on too long with weight on them setting beds on fire.  Things like the placing of stuff that can burn too close to a heater or fire.  It’s time to be just a bit more careful. This week’s weather included the very high winds that struck on Monday night.  The Fire Service were turned out to about 15 calls related to the big blow.  From power

lines down to roofs lifting these were widespread throughout the region. Little River’s brigade were turned out to three separate trees over within an hour.  The city crew was sent to an empty fire damaged house that threatened to lose the roof and a whole two-storey wall.  It was busy for an hour or two. The church in Bishopdale that was set alight last Sunday morning is a pretty sad commentary on the modern world.  Once churches were places anyone could go for sanctuary.  Now they need locked doors and security.  Not a great reflection on progress is it?

Exciting New Information & Service Centre for Seniors LIfe CAn get tougher as we get older, and it’s often easy to think that we should simply struggle on. Yet a huge range of services is available to make life easier. Because these services are sometimes difficult to find, a new non-profit Centre for Senior Wellbeing has been established. They offer a useful mix of affordable services and information on other community services such as falls Prevention and Green Prescriptions. Their desk is manned by dedicated staff who will connect you to the services you need. Although much of this information can be found on-line, for many this is a burden and talking to a ‘real person’ is much more pleasant. Problems with feet is a real issue for many older people with limited flexibility. The Centre offers inhome footcare for a reasonable fee. Additionally, there are services provided by dieticians to help with weight gain or loss, nutrition and shopping. Also occupational therapists who help maintain independence, safety in the home, and practical strategies for coping with issues like memory loss and pain. Speech and language therapists support those with swallowing and

communication concerns. Physiotherapy, in-clinic or at home, can help you stay mobile, reduce pain and increase wellness. A particularly beneficial and underused service is Caring for Carers. Many of us caring for our loved ones see it as our duty and deal with the stresses this brings on a daily basis. Caring for Carers has helped carers through their range of services for years, such as information on respite care.

Physical Sense Gym & Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street Sydenham

Exercise for life

The Centre for Senior Wellbeing will put you in touch with service providers like Physical Sense. They offer a range of practical support-solutions to problems many seniors encounter. There are exercise classes for stroke survivors where clients can either further improve or at least maintain their condition after they leave hospital. There are four classes a week which help with strength, balance and transferrable skills. There are also other diagnosis-specific classes including Intermittent Claudication, Diabetes and Osteoporosis which means users can learn about their condition and share their ways of dealing with it. There’s even a general class for seniors. The first four classes are free and may continue to be free if you are

WInZ supported. If not, there will be a (subsidised by Physical Sense) membership fee.

FOCUS ON HEALTH Herbs & Natural Ingredients Give Powerful

Support For Your Immune System! ReSeARcHeRS HAve shown that certain herbs and natural ingredients can dramatically reduce your chances of succumbing to colds and flu. Formulas like Go Healthy “Go virDefence” has been based on the latest research and has already proved itself too many. Due to the high potency extracts used in this formula most will find only one or two capsule daily sufficient to keep our immune system at optimum, however at the first sign of any immune attack, e.g. headaches, sore throat, aches etc the dose should be increased to one or two capsules up to three times daily. Most will then find the symptoms will disappear quickly without getting worse. Go vir-Defence contains the following powerful ingredients: Olive Leaf extract has become one of the most popular ingredients used in the treatment of immune attacks as it has strong anti-microbial properties that help slow the growth of bacteria and prevent the replication of viruses. Garlic extract is effective in combating bacteria, viruses and fungi and supporting the immune system. in general it may be used as a preventative for most infectious conditions, digestive as well as respiratory. The anti-microbial action makes it suitable for treatment of respiratory infections, influenza, recurrent colds and respiratory catarrh. Andrographis extract has powerful

immune enhancing properties and has been shown to help prevent the common cold as well as reduce the duration and severity of the symptoms of the common cold. echinacea extract is a natural antibiotic and infection fighter. it helps kill bacteria, viruses and fungi and provides powerful immune support. Pau D’ Arco extract assists in enhancing the body’s immune system. citrus Bioflavonoids work with vitamin c and support the immune system as well as strengthening capillaries and reducing inflammation. vitamin c is a powerful antioxidant and helps counteract many types of bacteria and viral infections. elderberry extract provides nutrients for immune support. Zinc is an essential mineral for the immune system and general health. it is required by every cell in the body. it is common to have sub-optimal levels of Zinc. Zinc possesses anti-viral activity. Generally this all-natural formula is very safe and highly effective without any side effects but due to the high potency extracts used please check with us first if you are on any prescription medication. This formula is also not suitable during pregnancy or lactation. vir-Defence and further information available from: Marshall’s Health & natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, new Brighton, Phone: 388-5757.

with profound healing abilities An Ancient spice called turmeric and its active ingredient curcumin have been proven to reduce and even eliminate pain and inflammation better than leading prescription medications. inflammation seems to be the common factor in all disease and even aging. turmeric effectively reduces inflammation while also stopping the initiation of inflammation in the first place. By stopping inflammation at the source it seems to work wonders for aches, pains, swelling and arthritis while at the same time supporting the healing process with its powerful antioxidants. This is where anti-inflammatory drugs fail, they only disguise the problem but do nothing to support the healing process and in fact may even allow the problem to worsen. india is a country where turmeric is highly respected for its health giving benefits. it is consumed on a regular basis and researchers believe this is probably the reason many common diseases are far less common in india that other countries. A study of 2,700 elderly indians in rural north india found less than 1% had any sign of Alzheimer’s, the lowest rate ever recorded, whereas compared to America the rate is now closer to 33%. The #1 cancer center in America, MD Anderson, now uses turmeric with its cancer patients. Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, lead researcher at MD Anderson says they have not found a single cancer that curcumin has not worked. curcumin binds to 33 proteins, allowing it to interrupt a

multitude of pathways tumors use to grow and spread, including the growth of new blood vessels that feed tumors. it can even cause the cancer cells to “commit suicide” without damaging healthy cells. curcumin appears to be a potent weapon against cardiovascular disease also. in recent research it was shown to lower triglycerides (considered a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease) by 65%. Another study found it to decrease oxidised LDL cholesterol by 33% while increasing the HDL (good cholesterol) by 29%, and all this in only seven days. Researchers have now shown curcumin to be beneficial in over 600 diseases including type 2 diabetes and even depression. The secret with turmeric is its active ingredient curcumin. curcumin however has low bio-availability so not much will be absorbed into our bloodstream. Meriva as used in GO-tURMeRic has overcome this problem with its patented molecular delivery system that offers superior absorption of curcumin. Because of this enhanced absorption GO-tURMeRic has the potential to be beneficial in numerous ailments and offer significantly greater benefits than standard turmeric. Further detailed information is available from the natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, new Brighton.

Researchers cannot believe how effective turmeric & its active ingredient curcumin is proving in supporting the natural healing of the body, with some calling it a natural cure-all. It has been found beneficial in well over 600 diseases. Research has shown a common factor with disease is inflammation & this is where curcumin is amazing. It naturally reduces inflammation present while also stopping inflammation from starting in the first place. This allows the body a much better chance of healing itself. Studies have shown curcumin to be more beneficial than common prescription drugs for pain, swelling & inflammation. Curcumin however is normally poorly absorbed in the body but a patented extra called MERIVA (available as GOTURMERIC) has overcome this with their molecular delivery system. Meriva is significantly better absorbed giving it the potential to support the healing of numerous ailments.

Hillmorton High School Sam Baxter – Hillmorton like a family Jamie Whiting – From Hillmorton to Berkekey I have never regretted my decision to go to Hillmorton High School. I genuinely believe it helped shape me into the person I am today. Hillmorton was a combination of different people and cultures like no other place I had been – it made me learn to deal with many types of people. The school was smaller than others in the area which I liked: I wanted to be a person not a number. I had so many great experiences at Hillmorton – playing in the school softball and netball teams and going to tournaments, being

Samantha Baxter is Content Producer for Si & Gary, More FM Breakfast. in school productions, travelling

to Spain for three weeks with classmates and teachers for one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. After school, I went on to get a degree at Canterbury University and now work in my dream job as the Content Producer for the Simon Barnett and Gary McCormick Breakfast show on MORE FM. Looking back at my time at Hillmorton I know now that I would never have got through that critical time in my life without the support of my teachers and peers. Hillmorton is like a family.

Nick Phillips – Hillmorton lives by its vision: Personal best, nothing less! When it came time to choosing a high school, my parents asked me which Open Nights I would like to attend. My response was ‘Hillmorton’. I am more than pleased with my decision to study at Hillmorton and do not regret it in the slightest. Hillmorton provided me with a wealth of opportunities to learn in different environments, and challenged me to achieve with each and every opportunity. I was also lucky enough to meet a great “melting pot” of people,

Nick Phillips was Dux and Woolhouse Scholar in 2008. He is now practising law in Wellington.

which has helped me to relate to, and understand the different people that I interact with on a day-to-day basis. The teachers are second-tonone, and genuinely care about the education of their students. They, and the other Hillmorton staff, encourage students to achieve to the best of their abilities, whilst also making time to help those students who need additional assistance. Hillmorton lives by its vision – Personal best, nothing less!

Jamie Whiting was Dux in 2012 and is studying to be a civil engineer. After graduating from Hillmorton High School in 2012, I enrolled at the University of Canterbury to study for a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering. Now in my final year of the degree, I am well on my way to achieving this with first class honours. I received the University of Canterbury Senior Scholarship. Currently, I have the extraordinary opportunity of completing some of my study at the University of California at Berkeley. During high school

I never thought I would study at one of the top universities in the world, but here I am. Living in the San Francisco area and having this opportunity to study abroad has been life changing, to say the least. Looking forward to next year, I will begin working as a structural engineer at one of the biggest civil engineering firms in the world. The future in this role will enable me to travel the world while working on the design and construction of world class buildings and facilities.

The education I received at Hillmorton has prepared me admirably for starting university this year. Teachers at Hillmorton always went the extra mile to make their subjects challenging and interesting, and support was always there. Hillmorton provides a diverse cultural environment as well as

heaps of sporting, musical and drama opportunities which makes its students such strong, well-rounded citizens. After almost a semester at university, I’m getting a sense that in order to succeed here, you need to get along well with everyone and to study hard. Hillmorton taught me the importance of both.

hen our owners built their family home, they placed a huge emphasis on both quality and space, creating an expansive 298.7-square-metre (over foundation) residence, which is as functional as it is stylish and well-appointed. A total of five bedrooms are complemented by three bathrooms, including an ensuite off the master, ensuite of second bedroom and a main bathroom that features a sumptuous spa bath. The kitchen is large, with a skylight bathing the entire area in natural light and an array of quality appliances, ensuring the ability to cater to all occasions.
