WHO PAID POPPI’S VET BILL?

The identity of Coral Luscombe and her dog Poppi’s anonymous benefactor is a still a mystery. The kind stranger paid a $1000 vet bill for Poppi, who was hurt badly after being hit by a car, but is now on the mend. Now Mrs Luscombe and Poppi just want to give the woman a hug and to say thanks. •Story, page 12 PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Facebook gives wrong burglary impression – police

„„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce POLICE ARE urging people not to think there is an explosion of burglaries in South New Brighton because of posts on Facebook. Senior Sergeant Dave Robertson (right) said many of the posts about burglaries were from people who are “alarmists.� They were “rumour mongering.� The area where Facebook posts said there had been an explosion of break-ins was within a 1km radius of Bridge St. It was giving a misleading impression of the real situation, said Senior Sergeant Robertson. Overall there had not been an increase in burglaries in the area concerned, apart from a small spike about six weeks ago, he said. “[On Facebook, people] like to rant and rave about burglaries. In the past I’ve seen them count

the same burglary over and over. Neighbours and friends and the people involved all tend to post about the same one . . . they’re counting two as five and things like that,â€? he said. But, a South New Brighton resident, who did not want to be named, disagreed. “You can talk to anyone and they’d know of at least one [burglary]. There wouldn’t be someone who isn’t spooked about it all,â€? she said. The woman said neighbours around her, friends down her street, and in other suburbs had been burgled recently. Last month, Police Minister Judith Collins said police will attend every house burglary, as it was being shifted in police priorities from a volume crime to a priority crime. •Email reporter Fraser. walker@starmedia.kiwi with your views

Tuesday September 20 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

ELECTION PAPERS should be in the mail boxes of most this week and we are ramping up our election coverage on pages 7, 8 and 9. The Coastal Ward will be the nail-biter, with three very strong candidates. Incumbent David East is trying to win back his seat against the outspoken and experienced local government contender Jo Kane, while Dean Lester will garner much support in his unflinching work for those battling earthquake insurance issues. All bets are likely to go on incumbent Yani Johanson winning the Linwood Ward, against Alexandra Davids who has not made much of an impression on the community board this term, and relative unknown Scott Toomey. Glenn Livingstone is fighting hard to retain a seat against a new face to local body politics Cruize Erueti. Hei kona, Shelley Robinson

Community board’s low attendance leads to lack of decision-making

„„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce A LACK of attendance from Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board members meant a decision on a major road upgrade – which could take away 70 per cent of car parks – has been delayed. A joint community board meeting was called to discuss whether the North Avon Rd renewal project, which is likely to take away 40 to 70 of the 100 car parks available along the road, should go ahead. The meeting between Hagley-Ferrymead, ShirleyPapanui, and BurwoodPegasus community boards was held last Thursday at the city council building. But a decision on the repairs, worth about $2.9 million, could not be made because only city councillor Yani Johanson, chairwoman Sara Templeton and member Alexandra Davids were present for Hagley-Ferrymead. City councillor for the Hagley-Ferrymead Ward Paul Lonsdale couldn’t attend the meeting and community board member Brenda Lowe-Johnson joined the meeting too late.

In Brief TSUNAMI SIREN TESTING A tsunami warning siren test will be held this Sunday at 11am along the coastline from Brooklands to Taylors Mistake. The city council tests the sirens on the first Sunday of April and the last Sunday of September each year and the sirens last about three minutes. CHARITY CAR WASH Firefighters across the country will be trading their hoses for sponges for a charity car wash next Saturday. Crews from New Brighton Volunteer Fire Brigade are fundraising to help Starship Hospital fight Mitochondrial disease. The car wash will be held at the New Brighton Fire Station, 80 Hawke St between 10am and 2pm. The cost is a donation of your choice.

ROAD RENEWAL: North Avon Rd could receive a multi-million dollar upgrade. ​

To be able to discuss a decision, all community boards had to have at least four members present. Cr Lonsdale said he wanted to be at the combined meeting, but could not make it. “I would’ve (attended), but I had issues with pre-booked meetings and development issues in the city centre,” he said.

City councillor David East said it was disappointing to be unable to make a decision, but the low attendance was understandable. “It’s a shame we’ll have to reconvene, but (the HagleyFerrymead Community Board is) only five-strong anyway. They used to have seven, but one went overseas and one lives way out of town,”

he said. Community consultation showed the highest priority for concerned residents was the loss of parking spaces. With only one meeting left before the October elections, it means the new city council will make the final decision based on the community boards recommendations.

Swimmer ready for transplant games „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding BEN STANBURY, 11, was once told he had a one-in-three chance of dying. Now, after receiving a liver transplant last year, the young swimmer will be the only child organ recipient from New Zealand to be compete at the Australian Transplant Games held in Sydney. Ben, of St Albans, will travel to Sydney this week to compete in swimming, shot-put, a 50m sprint and 10-pin bowling. At four months old, Ben was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease after he was rushed to hospital with heart failure. The disease is a genetic disorder where abnormal cysts grow in the kidneys. He also had severe problems with his liver. The night of his diagnosis was a moment his mother Traci Stanbury would never forget after she was told he had a one-in-three chance in dying. “In the end they paralysed him, put him on an ambulance and he spent the next month living up in Starship Hospital,” she said. Mrs Stanbury said since the “traumatic” night, Ben’s heart

Mrs Stanbury said he will be put on a waiting list of about 600 people when it gets to 30 per cent. But for now, Ben is looking forward to going over to competing in the games as well as visiting Featherdale Wildlife Park. “For him to be the exact same as everyone else in the room and to be completely normal, that is quite a cool thing for him to do,” Mrs Stanbury said. Inspired by paralympian Sophie Pascoe, who won five medals at the Rio Paralympics, Ben will be competing in numerous events including his favourite sport of swimming. Ben first became interested in swimming at age four and leading up to the games he has been practising once a week in preparation. “Never give up because it can always be done,” he said. “Ben is very proud of the fact he is going. He is a very laid-back kid by nature just because of everything he has been through,” Mrs Stanbury said.

Parents set to fight Community „„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce MARSHLAND SCHOOL parents are lining up to fight one another – but all for a good cause. They will hold a fundraising boxing event so the school can buy a car to assist pupils getting to academic and sporting events. A pair of boxing gloves signed by Joseph Parker is one of the items up for auction on the night. Event organiser Melissa McGraw said a committee of nine parents pitched the idea of a King of the Ring event to the school’s board of trustees, the principal, and to Boxing New Zealand. “We have a school parents’ [Facebook] page, and we put a post up to see if anyone was interested, and we quite rapidly had a number of parents interested. Then we had to meet with the board of trustees and the school principal, and we got clearance,” she said. Ms McGraw said the event has 28 boxers, most of whom are “mums and dads”, who have never “stepped in the ring” before. “Even with that, currently in terms of tables, we’ve sold all the ring-side tables and also five

AUCTIONED OFF: A pair of boxing gloves signed by Joseph Parker will be among the auction items for Marshland School’s King of the Ring event. ​ boxers are sponsored already. So we’re looking for more individual boxer sponsors. We’re well underway,” she said. Ms McGraw said she hopes the night will raise enough for the school to purchase a car. “We worked out the minimum we need to raise is about $20,000 for a vehicle of sorts. The

maximum we’re looking to raise is anything up to $50,000. Currently we’re still getting auction pieces together,” she said. Tickets to King of the Ring go on sale on September 30. For more information, email kingofthering2016@hotmail. com

„„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce ALMOST THREE weeks after a behind-closed-doors meeting with city councillors, a feasibility report on the New Brighton hot salt water pools and North Beach promenade is yet to be seen by the Burwood-Pegasus Community Board. Reports on the North Beach promenade and hot salt water pools project were presented to the city council at a staff briefing on August 29. Previously, Pegasus Post reported that doubts had been cast over whether the $2.4 million North Beach promenade project will go ahead in its current form. The behind-closed-door meetings revealed problems with financing the project, which has potentially jeopardised it. The community board asked city council staff to keep them

DAVID EAST

up to date with the progress made on the two projects by DCL. But board chairwoman Andrea Cummings said DCL has not played its part in keeping the board notified. City councillor David East said the reports presented at the city council meeting are yet to be seen by the board. “They haven’t been seen by the board yet. They have been kept up to date with information, but DCL are still working on both [projects] so they haven’t finalised anything,” he said. City councillor Glenn Livingstone said the board needs to see the feasibility reports, even if they are not fully complete. “The board needs to see them . . . I will push for the board to see them,” he said. DCL chief executive Rob Hall did not respond to the Pegasus Post.

Re-Elect

I have represented the Coastal Ward for 12 years on the Community Board and three years as City Councillor for the area. It is with immense pride that I am a fourth generation member of our community and follow my Great Grandfather and Grandfather in council matters, both being elected members of the New Brighton Borough Council My significant involvement in this term has been with the QEII Pool rebuild (about to start), new High Schools on QEII Park and advocating for the retention of Gravity Sewerage in Parklands. I have also been significantly involved in Coastal Hazard management in the Eastern Suburbs, successfully challenging reports commissioned and advocating for a practical and measured approach to Sea Level rise and Coastal Hazards. My focus for the next three years includes: Estuary edge protection for the South Brighton side of the Estuary, Continued advocacy for practical approaches to Coastal Hazards,

Hot salt Water Pools in New Brighton, advocacy and promotion for the future use of the Residential Red Zone land, a coastal walkway / promenade, recognition of the inclusion of Spencerville and Brooklands in the new ward and their issues, dealing with flood management issues in the lower Avon catchment The Eastern Suburbs has suffered for many years from neglect and under appreciation. We are the Coastal window to the city and the huge potential that the area exudes has been undervalued, underappreciated and underconsidered by successive Councils for many years. My aim is to turn this prejudice around and realise the great potential the Eastern Suburbs offer. I am proud to represent the Ward and continue to be involved with many organisations. I seek your vote to continue advocating for our wonderful community

Your Local Views Readers respond to last week’s Pegasus Post article on potentially delaying repairs to the New Brighton Pier until March next year Mark O’Malley: If they are going to wait till after the surf carnival to start the repair, they may as well wait till after the Duke Festival of Surfing which attracts over 200 competitors and finishes on March 26.

Not until a final design is found for a ‘fisher’s deck’ (safe and not smelly) that can be done at the same time. Claire Lawrie: I think it would be good to delay repairs to the pier until after the summer. The surf carnival would be wonderful. Also, do we really need the upheaval of repairs over Christmas and the warmer weather?

standing in Rangiora as well. However, Linda is a very capable person and, with nine years of local community board experience behind her, obviously has a good idea what she is in for. I have dealt with Linda a lot through the Keep QE II in the East group and she was also on the CAG (Community Advisory Group) regarding the ERS. She was the only member of the last board to fully support our community and CAG group when it came to the scope of the new QE II facility the east is getting. She fully supported extra pool space, and the extra pool that the communities were originally promised in the 2012 annual plan. She feels that we have been wronged (as do most), and that this is unfinished business. She has also listened to the community regarding the entirety of QE II, and would like to be involved in the upcoming master plan of the site.

In the past six years of dealing with the council and board, she has been the most efficient to deal with. She has taken the time to respond to our hundreds of emails (unlike some), met with our group and other community groups supportive of QE II, and she stood up against management decisions, often being the lone voice, when the entire board should have. From observing meetings, Linda often faced a tough battle getting her voice heard, as other board members had not taken the time or made the effort to meet with the concerned CAG group members to find out what their concerns were around the decisions made during that process. But she stuck to her guns and I respect her for that. We haven’t always seen eye-toeye and have disagreed at times, but I am sure she would be quite capable filling a double role if elected. Best of luck Linda.

News Salt water pools hot election issue Where would you like to see the New Brighton hot salt water pool facility built and why? Do you think the city council will be able to follow through with the promise of building the pools? Dean Lester: Coastal Ward city council candidate “The proposed facility with a 4000 sq m footprint has a natural location on the New Brighton foreshore, with the design ensuring customer comfort to the 300,000 that may be attracted annually by providing protection from the prevailing winds. Responsibility for this development falls with Development Christchurch Ltd, who has a mandate to catalyse new investment and development in Christchurch, thereby improving economic and social outcomes for the city. We must look for and achieve better social outcomes and grow the economy in the Coastal Ward.”

Jo Kane: Coastal Ward city council candidate “Built with all environmental considerations, including ease of access, sustainable funding, in the location that best sits with the community’s expectations. Coastal environments are harsh and unforgiving, therefore, location, design and maintenance are a critical factor. The notion of hot salt water pools has been around since the 70s and, unless the council truly commits to a world class development and the funding needed, it could become a dumbed down version and the legacy project could be deemed unaffordable. The pools potential to New Brighton as a destination could help the economic heart, but could again break hearts by not happening.”

David East: Coastal Ward city council candidate “The hot salt water pools need to be built on the foreshore, north of the pier. In this location, they will be an added attraction to activities on the foreshore and, more importantly, need to be constructed in a manner that allows users to view the beach and pier. The eastern suburbs has a wide range of recreation activities that can be promoted as a reason to come to the area. They need to be promoted as a package with the hot salt water pools as a great finish to their experience of a wide range of activities on offer in the Coastal Ward. Yes, I am cautiously confident that this project will be constructed.”

Tim Sintes: Coastal Ward community board candidate “My first choice would be on the road side of the grassed area next to the library. There has been talk of closing Marine Parade, if that was the case I would put it back where the road is. Otherwise, I am just happy to have it somewhere near the beach. As it will come under Development Christchurch Ltd plans, I definitely believe it will happen. I believe this is the start of the revitalising of New Brighton.”

SCIRT programme on the home straight SCIRT’s five year programme of repairs to pipes, roads, bridges and retaining walls is almost complete and we’re aiming to finish construction in December. The City Council and NZ Transport Agency will continue completing ongoing repairs to the city's earthquake-damaged infrastructure after SCIRT.

Progress in your neighbourhood

Elections Andrea Cummings: Coastal Ward community board candidate “The community and community board haven’t been a part of the process and haven’t seen pre-feasibility reports that incumbent councillors have seen. This makes it difficult to have conversations with ratepayers and form opinions on the best location for the hot salt water pools. My assumption is that having it close to the library and/or surf club would be useful in terms of achieving the goals of rejuvenation that are at the fore of residents’ wishes. Feasibility is the core requirement of whether council will build or not, and I don’t know the details to be able to say.”

Therefore, it must honour their promise and I believe they will, especially now Development Christchurch Ltd and Regenerate Christchurch have it on their agendas. With community agreement my preference for positioning the pools is between the pier and New Brighton surf club, which would allow for a natural flow to the beach and New Brighton CBD. The position must not impact negatively on the New Brighton Club and residents opposite. I have supported this project for years through submissions and the Pier and Foreshore Society.”

With the October 8 deadline looming for the local body elections, the Pegasus Post asked candidates to send in why they should get your vote. The eastern suburbs is covered by three wards - Burwood, Coastal and Linwood. A city councillor is elected from each. Two are selected from each ward to be on the community board. Dean Lester: Coastal Ward city councillor My first house was in Inwoods Rd and over the past 20 years I have enjoyed the easy access to the beach, sea and forest to walk, run and bike. These need to be protected and have good safe access. I have advocated as an insurance expert over the past six years helping Cantabs in their David vs. Goliath challenges with Earthquake Commission and insurers. The wealth of local knowledge must be used to drive our continued recovery in the right direction. I want the Coastal Ward voice to be heard in the enthusiastic and committed tone used by the locals.

Jo Kane: Coastal Ward city councillor Quite frankly the coastal ward has suffered a steady decline due to under investment, over promises and lack of maintenance for years. The earthquakes should have accelerated the work programme for this area, instead you’ve been patronised with grandiose plans and relying on the tremendous spirit of the community. Forthright, strong and experienced as a previous Deputy Mayor in Waimakariri and a regional councillor I know how to get things done. I will set up an office, live locally and then vigorously demand that from Southshore to Brooklands (including Parklands) that the priorities set by the community are funded and actioned.

David East: Coastal Ward city councillor I have represented the Coastal Ward for 12 years. My significant involvement in this term has been with the QEII Pool rebuild (about to start), new high schools on QEII Park and advocating for the retention of gravity sewerage in Parklands. I have also been significantly involved in coastal hazard management in the eastern suburbs, successfully challenging reports commissioned and advocating for a practical and measured approach to sea level rise and coastal hazards.

Tim Baker: Burwood Ward Coastal-Burwood Community Board I have been an elected member of the Community Board for two terms. I have attended over 100 meetings each year to ensure the community has been listened to. I have not promised unrealistic projects like the waterpark which delayed the building of the new QE II by two years and have realistic expectations of the city council, Government and community. The next three years you need an advocate to help ensure that the best use of the Red Zone is realised, stop banks are renewed to prevent flooding, and our parks are kept maintained. Your vote for a competent The People’s Choice team will ensure our community will keep going forward.

Linda Stewart: Burwood Ward Coastal-Burwood Community Board I am committed to the east, politics-free and I’m seeking a fourth term. In returning quality of life meaningful to us this council has underdelivered on rebuilding quality roads, permanent stop-banks, New Brighton’s Legacy Project and under-providing QE II’s aquatic capacity. By working direct with community I have successfully advocated for retaining QE II land sale proceeds for further onsite development and upgrading the downsized aquatic replacement proposal to include a two metre depth 25 metre pool, lengthened learn-to-swim pool and a therapeutically useful spa. I love our eastern lifestyle and oppose our community’s assets being downsized or cashed-in without transparent community-wide consultations.

Sela Faletolu-Fasi: Burwood Ward - CoastalBurwood Community Board I currently work in tertiary education for Ara Institute of Canterbury. I am a Justice of the Peace, a member of the Youth Advisory Group for the Wayne Francis Charitable Trust, and also sit on the Staff and Council Advisory Group, and Pasifika Advisory Group for Ara Institute of Canterbury. I believe community boards are a vehicle for people to be heard, those who are confidently vocal, and meaningfully engaging those who are not. Poverty, mental health and wellbeing are pressing issues within my ward. Restoring and improving infrastructure is important, but not more than the basic needs of people.

Andrea Cummings: Coastal Ward Coastal-Burwood Community Board I am the current Burwood-Pegasus Community Board chairperson during a time where extraordinary circumstance has called for extraordinary leadership. I have been fortunate to led a united board overcoming numerous challenges, making complex decisions and overall helping to make the ward a better place to live. My passion is advocating for the recovery and enhancement of New Brighton and coastal communities and this earned me an earthquake award for running a welfare centre. My previous training and experience in geology, ministry, accounting and business leadership equip me to serve on boards of Rebuild Christchurch, Eastern Vision and Avondale School.

Kim Money: Coastal Ward Coastal-Burwood Community Board It would be my privilege to serve you, our amazing community, to a greater degree! I am a person of vision, action and perseverance – my history reflects this. During my 35 years as a coastal resident I have voluntarily worked in leadership roles helping transform, restore, and connect our area. E.g. New Brighton Pier and Foreshore Society, North Beach Residents’ Association, Canterbury Youth Services, Grace Vineyard Church, LinC Project, CCRU, Compassion Trust, beach promenade proposal, refurbishment of the North New Brighton War Memorial Hall. Recipient of: Christchurch City Council Earthquake Award, Burwood Pegasus Community Services Award. For more information: www.facebook.com/kim. money.coastal.ward

Tim Sintes: Coastal Ward - Coastal-Burwood Community Board With three terms on the community board I have helped enact change and betterment. I speak out with the voice of my community about the issues that count and action has been taken. I wish to continue my service because my passion lies in the east. I am consistently active within most of the community groups and with your vote will ensure I continue to advocate and enable our vision for our coastal area. Please make your vote count.

Mystery woman pays vet bill

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart FOCUSED ON cradling the broken body of her little dog after it was hit by a car, Coral Luscombe didn’t think to ask the name of the kind stranger who helped her. Hours later she found out the stranger had anonymously paid $1000 toward her dog’s vet bill. Now she just wants to say thank you. Ms Luscombe, a sickness beneficiary, had been out in the yard with her great nieces when she said her papillon dog, Poppi, saw another dog in the park across Queenspark Drive. “She shot straight through the fence. I was screaming at her, Poppi, Poppi, stop. One car missed her, but then she was hit and she was dragged under the car. I just screamed, and the elderly lady with her dog across the road screamed as well,” she said. The driver stopped, and a small crowd gathered. The stranger was among them, a woman who looked to be in her late 30s, she said. She had been further up the road and had seen the accident happen, and offered to drive

Ms Luscombe and Poppi to the vet. “I remember her saying she had animals and had been in the same situation herself,” Ms Luscombe said. She turned down the offer and drove herself to the vet, but she found out later the woman had

followed her and paid the bill after she left. Poppi needed two operations to clean her wounds and perform skin grafts, a night in the hospital, and may still need a toe removed. The bill added up to more than $1300, and Ms Luscombe said

paying it would have made the next few months a struggle. When the vet called later that day to say most of the bill had been paid, she could not believe it. “I was in shock. I sat down and burst into tears,” she said. She said she would love to

meet the woman and “say a million thank yous.” “Just thinking there is a beautiful soul out there who would be kind enough to do this for me and my little dog, it shows there are still good people out there.”

‘Fearless’ Andy makes news North Beach surfer in Hawaiian shark attack drama THE FRIEND of a Christchurch holiday-maker who rushed to the aid of a woman attacked by a shark in Hawaii says he is “fearless”. North Beach resident Andy Chapman was surfing at Mākaha Beach on Oahu Island when a woman was attacked by a shark about 100m from him. He paddled towards her after she screamed for help, but before he got there, she was pulled from the water by other surfers and lifeguards. It is believed the 51-year-old woman, a regular swimmer at the beach, may have been attacked by a 3m tiger shark. She suffered gashes to her shoulder, upper back and forearm. Burwood-Pegasus Community Board member Tim Sintes has known Mr Chapman for about NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf at 1 35 years and was a groomsman his wedding.

Mr Sintes said Mr Chapman was “fearless” and a real “down to earth” guy. “What he did in Hawaii did not surprise me at all,” Mr Sintes said. “He would have been back in the water the next day.” Mr Chapman, 57, was on holiday with his wife, Ineke, who is the chairwoman of the North Beach Residents’ Association. Mr Chapman told the New Zealand Herald the woman looked as if she had been slit open with a razor blade in about three places and there was a lot of blood. “In the water, there is a definite code of looking after others. A swimmer on their own seems to be a lot more vulnerable and also will have more limbs in the water acting as bait,” Mr Chapman 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. said. He said he had never experi-

enced anything like this, but it would not deter him from getting back in the water. Mr Sintes said the Chapmans were keen surfers in both New Brighton and Kaikoura, where they go most weekends. “Both of them have got this incredible enthusiasm for life. You hear the saying of work hard, play hard, and that would sum them up perfectly,” he said. A similar attack happened at Mākaha Beach six months ago, when a 10-year-old boy was mauled by a shark.

The Principal’s Desk

Students enjoying and sharing their learning is what i enjoy the most as Principal. This is evident in events such as school productions. our recent “Popstars the 90s Musical” production provided students an opportunity to step outside their comfort zone and perform in front of their peers, family, and community. i was amazed at the talent of our wonderful performers who sang those familiar 90s musical sounds. i take this opportunity Harry romana, to congratulate the cast, directors, and stagehands Principal on their contribution to wonderful and successful performances. i also congratulate our teachers and parents who helped with rehearsals, costumes, and props. Thank you to you all. Mairehau high School continues as a solid, viable co-educational school in the east of christchurch. We continue working with other schools, clusters, and community sector groups to develop a plan which will enhance the provision of education for all students in christchurch. all schools want students to access quality education outcomes, to access quality teaching, and quality learning. We can provide a friendly nurturing learning environment for all students. our students are our priority. Mairehau high School is in a strong position to offer students opportunities which will enable them to become decent, worthwhile citizens of the world, people who will contribute to their communities. Students who pass through our school gates, learn in our classrooms, and access technology through our wireless internet provision will be well set in the future. Future of Mairehau High School property Mairehau high School will be entering the ‘Master Planning building stage’ this July. The Ministry of education (Moe), school and community are expecting roll growth in the near future. as a school and community, we are planning for the growth in our school. The school has completed the Moe’s education Brief which provides a framework for Mairehau high School to develop and document our vision for delivering teaching and learning in the future and how that translates into a property solution that enables and supports Mairehau high School’s education vision. The government’s investment in Mairehau high School is most immediately a response to the earthquakes that have had a significant impact on our schools and community. at the same time, it is important that the educational 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. i trust you are able to pass on to your friends and family, the opportunities that a co-education school such as Mairehau high School can provide for christchurch east. Thank you to everyone who attended our ‘open evening’ and braved the cold winter night. Harry Romana Principal.

Outdoor Education

Popstars - The 90’s Musical

on Tuesday 7 June, the Senior outdoor education class embarked on an overnight adventure to Mt oxford. Faced with well-below-zero temperatures, the first thing on the agenda was to light a bonfire to keep us toasty – and the marshmallows of course!

Many parents and members of our community commented on the helpfulness of our guides. it’s our students who know our school best, and it was wonderful to hear many of them telling prospective families their feelings towards our school; that they loved being part of a small, community school with a true family feel. if you missed our open evening for this year, please ring the office for a 2017 Prospectus and we will gladly send it on to you. if you would like to discuss your child’s high school education with us, Mrs Shaw, the Principal’s secretary, will make the necessary appointment.

Year 13 student hunter adcock-Dinnington is a keen flyer, both of manned planes (he plans on becoming an airline pilot) and drones. With permission from Mr romana, hunter brought his new drone in for some aerial photos of the school.

Smokefree Rockquest The rockquest regional heats were held on 21 May and there were excellent performances from our students. rebekah Williams was great in the solo section singing her own composition. New Year 9 group “heck i Don’t Know”, made up of ella Peoples, ancke hurter and Tammy reynard, performed especially well. ‘indispute’, made up of Year 13 students lorne Joblin, Kaisie Van Dyk and Fale Polo were also fantastic and were selected for the rockquest regional Final which was held on 1 July. Sadly they didn’t move on from the regionals but Kaisie said it was a great experience and he was happy with getting as far as they did.

For dinner, students cooked spuds on the open fire – some were boiled, some were baked, and some made fries. after a chilly night in the tents, we were up at 5.30am for bacon, eggs, spaghetti and hot chocolate before we attempted to climb Mt oxford. By 8am, we were an hour into the climb and we had the most eerily warm weather – and we were stripping down the layers of clothing – even though we were standing in a few inches of snow. We made it half way up, and then Year 12 student Dallas had a run-in with a tree (literally), and we decided it was best to make the tramp down to camp. By this stage we were in a foot of beautiful powdery snow – so we had an epic snow fight before we departed. although we were disappointed we could not continue to the summit, we had an awesome time and we look forward to our next adventure.

after 3 months of rehearsals, our drama production for 2016, ‘PoPSTarS – the 90’s musical’ was presented to enthusiastic and welcoming audiences, both in the morning matinee and evening performances. The cast was brilliant, with a few new talents emerging and our ‘seasoned professionals’ stole the show with fantastic singing and acting. The production was very well supported by the community. Thank you to everyone who was involved.

Year 12 students pitch in to help Christchurch community an area of wetland damaged by fire in 2014 was restored to its former glory with help from Mairehau high School students and the university of canterbury Volunteer army (SVa). in 2014, vandals drove a car into halswell Quarry, destroying an area of native planting before setting fire to a section of boardwalk. in March, Year 12 students Shilah Norman, Kodie North, and Madi Maxwell-Mcginn, alongside the uc SVa, took on the restoration project as part of the SVa’s uc volunteer programme, and in the space of a few hours transformed the wetland area. The uc programme encourages secondary students to become leaders in their communities through volunteering while being mentored by SVa members. Despite it being a rainy day the girls, and other students from christchurch schools, arrived eager to get to work. one crew set about rebuilding the damaged boardwalk, another group cleared around young native plantings and another group used bark mulch to restore the pathway. christchurch city council park rangers Nigel Morritt and robbie hewson worked alongside the volunteers. “The students were full of energy and enthusiasm for the project and were a credit to their schools and the organization”, they said.

Well done to you all.

Many parents and members of our community commented on the helpfulness of our guides. it’s our students who know our school best, and it was wonderful to hear many of them telling prospective families their feelings towards our school; that they loved being part of a small, community school with a true family feel. if you missed our open evening for this year, please ring the office for a 2017 Prospectus and we will gladly send it on to you. if you would like to discuss your child’s high school education with us, Mrs Shaw, the Principal’s secretary, will make the necessary appointment.

Year 13 student hunter adcock-Dinnington is a keen flyer, both of manned planes (he plans on becoming an airline pilot) and drones. With permission from Mr romana, hunter brought his new drone in for some aerial photos of the school.

Smokefree Rockquest The rockquest regional heats were held on 21 May and there were excellent performances from our students. rebekah Williams was great in the solo section singing her own composition. New Year 9 group “heck i Don’t Know”, made up of ella Peoples, ancke hurter and Tammy reynard, performed especially well. ‘indispute’, made up of Year 13 students lorne Joblin, Kaisie Van Dyk and Fale Polo were also fantastic and were selected for the rockquest regional Final which was held on 1 July. Sadly they didn’t move on from the regionals but Kaisie said it was a great experience and he was happy with getting as far as they did.

For dinner, students cooked spuds on the open fire – some were boiled, some were baked, and some made fries. after a chilly night in the tents, we were up at 5.30am for bacon, eggs, spaghetti and hot chocolate before we attempted to climb Mt oxford. By 8am, we were an hour into the climb and we had the most eerily warm weather – and we were stripping down the layers of clothing – even though we were standing in a few inches of snow. We made it half way up, and then Year 12 student Dallas had a run-in with a tree (literally), and we decided it was best to make the tramp down to camp. By this stage we were in a foot of beautiful powdery snow – so we had an epic snow fight before we departed. although we were disappointed we could not continue to the summit, we had an awesome time and we look forward to our next adventure.

after 3 months of rehearsals, our drama production for 2016, ‘PoPSTarS – the 90’s musical’ was presented to enthusiastic and welcoming audiences, both in the morning matinee and evening performances. The cast was brilliant, with a few new talents emerging and our ‘seasoned professionals’ stole the show with fantastic singing and acting. The production was very well supported by the community. Thank you to everyone who was involved.

Year 12 students pitch in to help Christchurch community an area of wetland damaged by fire in 2014 was restored to its former glory with help from Mairehau high School students and the university of canterbury Volunteer army (SVa). in 2014, vandals drove a car into halswell Quarry, destroying an area of native planting before setting fire to a section of boardwalk. in March, Year 12 students Shilah Norman, Kodie North, and Madi Maxwell-Mcginn, alongside the uc SVa, took on the restoration project as part of the SVa’s uc volunteer programme, and in the space of a few hours transformed the wetland area. The uc programme encourages secondary students to become leaders in their communities through volunteering while being mentored by SVa members. Despite it being a rainy day the girls, and other students from christchurch schools, arrived eager to get to work. one crew set about rebuilding the damaged boardwalk, another group cleared around young native plantings and another group used bark mulch to restore the pathway. christchurch city council park rangers Nigel Morritt and robbie hewson worked alongside the volunteers. “The students were full of energy and enthusiasm for the project and were a credit to their schools and the organization”, they said.

Well done to you all.

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Freedom to learn and explore As a parent herself, Tiny Tots Nursery and Preschool owner and operator, Rebecca Ellis knows only too well how important your child’s welfare and learning is. For the highest quality care and education for your children Tiny Tots Nursery and Preschool is a privately owned and family operated centre that ensures peace of mind through their commitment to your child’s needs. “Over the years I’ve found that the best results for happy, socially well-adjusted children who are free to explore and grow, come from an environment that has flexible routines, changing challenges and a caring professional, qualified and experienced teaching team,” says Rebecca.

TENNIS PROS: Marcus Daniell (left) and Finn Tearney were welcomed with smiles and high fives when they visited Waitakiri Primary School last week.

Davis Cup team visits school WAITAKIRI PRIMARY School pupils had the chance to meet New Zealand’s top tennis players last week. The New Zealand Davis Cup team of Mike Venus, Marcus Daniell, Rubin Statham and Finn Tearney visited the school in the build-up to their Asia/Oceania group one relegation match against Pakistan at Wilding Park. They defeated Pakistan 5-0 in the tie at the weekend. The result means they will stay in group one next year. The visit was a rare chance for the pupils to meet the four players who spend

the majority of the year travelling on tour. Venus and Daniell recently represented New Zealand in doubles at Rio. The players picked up their rackets to play a number of games and also gave the lucky students tips on their tactics, technique, movement and mental focus. This was followed by a question and answer session. The visit was part of the New Zealand Post Tennis Hot Shot programme, which has seen almost 200,000 young players introduced to the game since 2013.

Tiny Tots provides a safe and secure environment in which children can learn, create and grow to the best of their abilities. Observing the children at play the teachers communicate with both parents and the teaching team in order to develop an individual

programme tailored to each child’s unique needs. This helps the children to extend on their learning and enhances their development while in an open learning environment. Tiny Tots is a small, homely centre with a real family feel and has a great open plan environment both indoors and out. Children are provided with high quality equipment, resources and facilities to support each child’s learning and development. Teachers encourage parents to spend time with their children in the centre, especially to help them settle in, which also helps parents to discover how the centre operates throughout the day. Parents and children are welcome to visit Tiny Tots at 148 England Street in Linwood or phone 3896851.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Effective treatment for many types of pain Complementary 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 8388.

An extract of a small pumpkinlike fruit called Garcinia Cambogia from India & Asia has shown itself to greatly assist weight management & overall health. In fact many have found it to increase fat loss by 2 to 3 times greater than normal. T.V. Dr. Oz has said it is the most effective & fastest working natural supplement to support weight loss. Even without exercise & diet changes many have found it beneficial, although even better & quicker results are often obtained with extra exercise & an improved diet. The extract of this amazing fruit is called Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) or CitriMax. Research has shown HCA to help suppress the appetite, reduce cravings, feel fuller for longer, increase energy levels, help prevent fat from being made & stored in the body, increase lean muscle mass, increase serotonin levels in the brain that help control mood & sleep (great for emotional eaters), improve cholesterol levels that may help reduce the chances of strokes & cardiovascular disease, help prevent sugar spikes as well as other health benefits. It is considered a very safe supplement (although check first if

you are on medication) as it has been used for centuries as a flavouring agent & digestive aid. To obtain reliable results it is important to take a product that contains a standardized extract of 60% HCA & also take the recommended amount as used in the clinical research. Some supplements also contain ChromeMate, a wellresearched form of niacin-bound chromium to help improve the results even more.

A Gut Feeling

Digestive health is becoming increasingly important for improving our overall wellbeing. As there is a distinct connection between our tummy and our moods, immunity and even our behaviours, it pays to follow your gut if you feel out of sorts with these nutritional enhancer

D

ietary fibre is made up of three types and each play a different role throughout the digestive tract. It’s often a case of balancing them all and not only supplementing with just one. To ensure

you get enough fibre in your diet: women should aim for 25 grams to 30 grams and men 30 grams to 38 grams each day. Soluble fibre are found in oats, psyllium, vegetables, fruits with their skin on and supplements like Metamucil. Insoluble

fibre can be found in wheat bran pasta and quinoa. Resistant starch is contained in cold cooked pasta, potatoes and firm, fresh bananas. Probiotics and prebiotic foods can help keep the correct pH balance(acidity to alkalinity) in our intestines. These ‘good’ bacteria assist with breaking down fibre in the bowel and produce healthy stool movements. Probiotics can be found in supplements, cultured yoghurt, kombucha

drinks and fermented vegetables. Prebiotic foods are Jerusalem artichokes and raw garlic, leeks and onions. Poor gut health could be caused by, but not limited to, high stress levels, caffeine, smoking or inadequate water consumption. If you suffer from prolonged periods of reflux, constipation, diarrhoea or cramping and nausea, seek medical advice. Your doctor may help identify possible intolerances or allergies.

Enjoy unique shopping to be found at Women’s Expo With over 200 sites to browse, unique businesses to discover, shopping, bargains and laughter, the Expo is the ultimate day out for every woman. One of the appeals the Expo has to visitors is the variety of companies involved with everything from jewellery and shoes to activewear and fitness to skincare and health products to gourmet food and wine and even a company offering plantbased cooking classes for Kids & Adults. There really is something for everyone and all ages. Renee Murray from NZME Events, organiser of the Expo says “Our aim is to have as wide of a range of companies involved with the Expo as possible. Women are all different and their individual interests are so diverse. One woman may love the latest in makeup or skincare but the woman beside her may be more interested in cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail or sampling handmade cheese. It’s great on the weekend to see all the various women visit the show, from teenagers to business women, mothers to grandmothers and friends simply enjoying each other’s company. It’s becoming more common for us to see three

generations visit the Expo together as well, with the daughter, mother and grandmother all enjoying the show and spending the day with each other.” Brandhouse will exhibit at the Expo for the first time with their range of champagne, vodka, port and wines. Popular at other Expo’s this year has been the Royal Dragon’s elite flavour vodka collection with some flavours selling out. Introducing the most tantalizing and unique flavoured vodka collection of its time flavours include Watermelon, Green Apple, Passion Fruit, Chocolate and Lychee… A great vodka collection to enjoy neat, on the rocks or in your favourite cocktail! Visit the large Brandhouse site at the show to sample from their fabulous range and take home what you love. Christinz Clothing will visit the show for the first time, travelling from Balclutha to showcase her selection of Designer Clothing including; pants, stunning tops, skirts, base layers and jackets. A popular

item are her batwing sleeve tops with a flattering shape through front to suit all sizes and with pink, gold, navy, black and silver in the colour range these tops look great with jeans, skirts or leggings. Christinz Clothing are located in the Expo Fashion Zone. The High Protein Breakfast Company will travel all the way from Auckland with their exclusive High Protein Muesli. Not available in store yet this range of muesli not only tastes great but helps with weight management, health and fitness. Without many of the sugars or fillers that so many processed breakfast foods contain these mueslis will keep you fuller for longer and with flavours including Berry, Peach & Nectarine and Feijoa you will want to buy them all. Visit the High Protein Breakfast Company in the Expo Taste Zone.
