Worst young crims focus of new police operation

The wearable arts parade was part of the creative arts programme where children used recycled materials to create a costume. About 15 children were involved. A YMCA spokeswoman said the children “loved it� even though they were a little bit nervous to get up and show what they had made.

„„ By Andrew King THE WORST young offenders in the north-west suburbs are part of a police focus to get them back on the straight and narrow. The 10 youths targeted are responsible for burglaries, thefts, vandalism and graffiti, intimidation and other offending. The operation, codenamed Piper, is based at the Papanui police station and is aimed at giving them opportunities to break their cycle of crime. Piper is part of a wider focus throughout northern and eastern suburbs to reduce youth crime and as part of the national goal to reduce it 25 per cent by June 2017.

Acting Sergeant Nick Adcock said it was hoped the operation would enable the young offenders to break their ties with a potential life of crime. Operation Piper is named after the Pied Piper of Hamlin, a 14th-century German rat-catcher hired by a town to lure rats away with a magic pipe. Police want the example set with the first few offenders to have a luring effect on others to break their criminal ways. “The idea is to have a fluid list that is always changing as we engage with them to try to break the cycle of offending,� Acting Sergeant Adcock (left) said. Police will step up bail

checks, follow up breaches of bail conditions and get out and about with at-risk youth to build relationships. “For lower level offenders towards the bottom of the list we will do all we can to get them back on the right path. Those towards the top will have similar opportunities but we will resort to traditional policing measures if they are not complying,â€? he said. Sociologist and gang expert Jarrod Gilbert said it was an “incrediblyâ€? positive move. “Recidivism rates in youth are really poor, so if this can reduce re-offending, which, in turn, will mean less victims and less expense, well that is the definition of win-win,â€? he said. •Turn to page 5

Concerns over traffic increase „„ By Andrew King RESIDENTS NEAR a major Avonhead land development say a predicted 20,000 more vehicle movements a day could ruin their quality of life. The Avonhead Community Group says they are concerned about the “huge impact” traffic could have once a 24ha site on the corner of Memorial Ave and Russley Rd is developed. Traffic modelling completed by Memorial Ave Investments Ltd, the primary owner of the block being developed, showed an increase of 28,818 vehicles per day in the area. This was based on a supermarket, retail, offices and visitor accommodation being built. Those rates were reviewed by consultants on behalf of the city council and accepted as being appropriate for the site. It would add to the 16,098 vehicles that already use Memorial Ave each day and 28,000 which use Russley Rd. “We support development but not at the sacrifice of our quality of life,” said Professor S.S Bagchi, Avonhead Community Group chairman. The land was re-zoned from

rural to an industrial park zone in June, as part of the district plan, allowing a range of industrial, commercial, office, retail, and travellers’ accommodation. The development is split into six sections, four owned by MAIL, one by McVicar Timber Group and the other by the Commodore Airport Hotel. Prof Bagchi said they did not want to be confrontational,

but they had to protect their neighbourhood. He said the group will be watching carefully any applications for resources consent. “We will speak with city councillors, community board members, infrastructure, environment and transport committee members, or who ever to make our point,” he said.

The section owned by McVicar Timber Group comes under the Runway Protection Act and is subject to strict conditions on what the land can be used for. The McVicar group contested the Act in the High Court on September 20, and a judge has reserved his decision until a later date. •See more election coverage page 4

Issues that matter in the Waimairi Ward Lewis Winn: Waimairi Ward community board candidate With voting in local elections coming to a close on October 8, Nor’West The Waimairi Ward in western Christchurch consists of the suburbs News is asking candidates their views on topical issues within the of Avonhead, Russley, Burnside and parts of Ilam. It is a mix of subcommunity. Three candidates live inside the ward and three do not. urbs developed in the 1960s through to the present day and consists We asked what are the biggest issues residents in the Waimairi Ward primarily of single family homes and semi-detached dwellings, surhave brought to the attention of the candidates while they’ve been rounded by gardens. The biggest issues for residents of the Waimairi Ward are water quality and campaigning? Raf Manji: Waimairi Ward city council candidate The two main issues in the ward are increased traffic movements and independent hearings panel decisions on land re-zoning. Both are connected, with the main traffic concerns focused on the Avonhead Rd connection to the proposed Memorial Ave Investments Ltd site, which has now been re-zoned for development. The community board will need to look closely at how to manage any increased traffic movements there. We are still waiting on the outcome of recent appeals over the independent hearings panel decision on the northwest review area. The community has put in a lot of work on these issues and is hopeful of a productive outcome.



Anthony Rimell: Waimairi Ward city council candidate Stewart Henry and I have been door-knocking in the ward for three months. We’ve heard about concerns over water quality, roading, and bus routes. However, the most significant issue raised in the ward has been the proposed industrial developments on Memorial Ave (the MAIL site) and on Hawthornden Rd (NWRA3). People have repeatedly identified the impact on traffic safety around schools, water quality and the ward’s infrastructure if these large scale industrial projects proceed unmodified. For me, these and similar large scale projects, need to be measured against three ‘goods’. Is it good for the environment, is it good for our city and is it good for our local community? As I’ve spoken to people in the ward, they have been fully supportive of my approach. For them, these projects meet none of these ‘goods tests’. If I’m elected, that’s a key view I’ll be raising at the city council table.

be a time traveller!

development of the rural-urban fringe. The area has long been popular with families due to its quality schools, parks and other facilities, and pleasant, safe environment. Any development within the ward must maintain its existing residential character. Keeping our aquifers free from contaminants is also important priority. The city council must work with Environment Canterbury, residents and developers to ensure our water is kept pristine.

Sam MacDonald: Waimairi Ward community board candidate Throughout the campaign, there have been two key issues raised with me. The first is the water quality and the reluctance to have it chlorinated. The feedback I’ve received has been overwhelmingly in favour of keeping our water chlorine-free, so it’s pleasing to see the city council work quickly to resolve this issue. The second is around the development of available land within our community. Resident concerns on this range from traffic and parking issues through to the impact on local amenities. I’ve said throughout this campaign, and most recently at the Avonhead Community Group’s public meeting, that my role is to represent your views, and work to ensure the city council protects our local interests.

Shirish Paranjape: Waimairi Ward community board candidate To be factual, my interaction with residents during door-knocking and other meetings has shown that there are two principal issues. The first issue relates to re-zoning of land, specifically two land-blocks – NWRA area three block B and the so-called MAIL site, and all the related concerns of traffic, parking, noise, water supply and sewage, loss of tranquility, impact on house prices and so on. These aspects are discussed in detail on Avonhead Community Group’s website. The other more recent issue is about the potential risk to the water supply in north-west Christchurch, and whether it should be chemically-treated. This has gained prominence due to the happenings at Havelock North. The city council has decided to fast-track the planned upgrade of the water supply system, while continuing to test the water daily.

Toy library needs new home „„ By Andrew King THE PAPANUI Toy Library may have to close if a new site isn’t found for it to relocate into. The well-used library is facing a bleak future after news that its current premises at 472 Cranford St will be demolished by the end of the year due to earthquake damage. Once it receives the notice to vacate the site, which is privately-owned, it will have four weeks to clear the building. Secretary Natalie Sisson said finding a new premise that could house the toys for an affordable price is proving difficult. “It would be a great loss to the community, especially in these times where we provide an affordable option for families who cannot always afford toys for their children to learn through play,” she said. The service is used by about 100 members. It has been in operation since 1993 and is open to parents on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Bishopdale resident Sean Clifford said his family use the library a lot and it is a great asset for the community. “We are able to come down and


Police operation to tackle youth crime •From page 1 Youth crime, especially young people hanging around the Northlands Shopping Centre, Papanui High School and the Papanui Library (below), has been a focus for police and the city council for some time. In September the city council turned off a controversial a “mosquito device” that was used to repel fighting youths who were intimidating library staff and visitors. It had been installed at the library in 2014 and emitted an irritating, high-pitched sound, audible only to children and teenagers, to deter loitering near the front door.

get a few different toys every couple of weeks, which is good because the kids get bored of them quickly,” he said. “It would be a real shame if it was to close. Hopefully they can find somewhere to move to.” The city council has suggested the library could move into the former Bishopdale Plunket

rooms in the Bishopdale Village Mall – but it needs earthquake repairs before it can be occupied. The Plunket rooms were closed in July 2013 due to earthquake damage. However, Ms Sisson said they will have to see if the space is suitable for their needs before they can commit.

“They do require some earthquake repairs and it may be a bit small for us . . . we need about 100 sq m,” she said. HAVE YOUR SAY: How valuable are toy libraries in the community? Share your views with us. Email andrew.

P ​ romoting sustainability Looking after the environment is a key component now in high school’s and Rangi Ruru Girls’ School is no different. Principal Sandra Hastie writes this week’s opinion piece on what they are doing in the school to make them clean and green. The best way to predict the future is to design it. So said R. Buckminster Fuller, a renowned 20th-century inventor and visionary born in Massachusetts in 1895. Mr Fuller dedicated his life to making the world work for all of humanity and now more than 100 years later, we know a major part of that concept, is sustainability. In 2015, Rangi Ruru Girls’ School adopted a sustainability philosophy which has underpinned a number of key initiatives. It’s great coming up with ideas but the important part is putting them into practice, and continue to develop them. Art teacher Kate Rivers is our director of sustainability and she

leads a team of staff and students in promoting sustainability within the school. Each year we appoint a student head of sustainability, a role taken up with gusto this year by Annelise Thompson. At the start of 2016, we initiated our waste management plan and use colour coded bins – green for compost, blue for reused, yellow for recycling and red for landfill. Six months on and we have reduced the amount of waste going to landfill by 56 per cent. We were previously producing 21 cu m of waste a week, now we are down to eight. Sustainability is school-wide and everybody is involved and engaged. It’s about crossing the curriculum for the girls as well as integrating with our well-being programme. For example, our well-being focus in term three was on respect. There was much thought-

provoking discussion in every class, about how we can respect the environment. The integration across the curriculum is seamless and our girls automatically start looking at how the topic of study relates to sustainability; it becomes second nature. We could not achieve all we do without our fabulous sustainability executive team. Thank you to staff Kate Rivers, Dr Catherine Low, Philippa McIntyre, Pam Schreurs and students Annelise Thompson, Isabella Gregory, Emilie Aitkin, Sarita De Gouw, Lucy Simpson and Pia Petersen for your hard work and passion.

We asked readers should motorists be charged for parking at Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre. They write

the apparent public consultation on this, sure I try and park in the car park, however, if there are no parks available I park on the road and walk in, no big deal.

Lee Richards, of Strowan – I would oppose the introduction of being charged for car parking at Jellie Park as I am a high user of this facility and riding my bike there is not feasible. As a parent of two boys who play water polo and swim and train at Jellie Park I already pay the city council a huge amount of money for the use of the only deep water pool in Christchurch. I am there several times a week dropping off, picking up and watching my children as late as 9.30pm sometimes. I wonder if Bridget Williams has considered this, does she have children who use the facility frequently, does she pay the exorbitant prices that the city council charge us because they can, because we have no other choice. My children swim up to 3km at a session I don’t think they need to bike ride on top of that, especially late at night. Why should we be penalised for driving our car, that is my choice. Yes, I agree parking is an issue, however, if they are prepared to let us park on the grass during the summer months why don’t they just turn the whole front in to car parking. I was unaware of

Joan Mahon, of Riccarton – We don’t think people attending Jellie Park should have to pay for car parking. I am 77-years-old and attend aqua classes five days a week. Our classes are full of mainly older people who enjoy the pool and gym, some travel many kilometres to Jellie Park many recovering from surgery and the companionship is most important. Not all of us are gym bunnies or teenagers or belong to a cycling group. Have a think about who, over the years, have paid rates so that Jellie Park could serve our community not everyone can ride a bike or is on a bus route. I am surprised that the community board has nothing better to do than target the people who get out and do something to keep fit and healthy. Would Don Babe and Bridget Williams be happy to see their Nana and Grandad on a bike dressed in lycra? They would be better off coming up with ideas about real issues like the graffiti or encouraging young people to walk to school rather than being dropped at the school gate.

Marilyn Vicary, of Avonhead – I am a regular user of Jellie Park, mostly in the mornings and on Saturday morning. I also sent a submission to the city council against the extension of the car park there. I am most certainly against any charges for the use of the car park. This is a fitness facility so why can’t people walk a short distance if they have to park on the street. If a patron is early enough for their particular session a car park can usually be found in close proximity. The real bottlenecks occur when there is a bulk booking for a length of time, which can be almost all day, such as a swim meet. These sessions usually commence quite early and completely fill available parking. Where bulk bookings are made with the expectation that


Tuesday October 4 2016

parking for people and possible equipment is available charges for this is, I believe, appropriate. There is also the facility for elite sport at the rear of the complex and this too can cause a block. Most of the members would stay for approximately 1-1/12 hours. Another point, paying for a parking spot does not automatically provide a parking space when it is wanted. The facility is popular but as other facilities are developed or fixed the patronage will drop as people will use facilities nearer their home. There appears to be ample parking between the hours of 11.30am and 4pm. Steve Winter, of Sockburn – The car park at Jellie Park is not under pressure weekday mornings, throughout the year

when a significant proportion of users are elderly pensioners who must use their cars to get there. Don’t penalise them for wanting to remain active in what is also an important social occasion for many. In actual fact, for parts of the day, they are possibly the significant revenue stream for the facility. I swim, with up to three of my elderly friends three to four weekday mornings each week. I drive from Sockburn, have angina, I am a pensioner and make the effort because it is important to me and affordable. Car parking has never been a problem. Let’s have a sensible and workable solution. Alan Tunnicliffe, of Avonhead – As a cyclist, bus rider and walker I would not expect to be rewarded for being sensible about transport. On the other hand as a motorist I would expect parking to be free as it is at other city council facilities. However, I can see that charging for parking might force a few people to consider using other means of transport to and from Jellie Park. Whether parking is charged for or free the car park will get full at peak times so the “first in, first served” principle will apply and the overflow will make use of nearby streets.

We asked readers if the closure of the Westpac bank will have a negative affect on businesses in the Bishopdale Village Mall. They write Jill Robinson, of Bishopdale – I believe the closure of Westpac at Bishopdale will affect the mall, and is short sighted of Westpac. Many people used to shopping at Bishopdale will miss the convenience of being able to pop in to the bank. And the moving of Mitre 10 has not helped the revitalisation of our mall. I hope a progressive retailer, selling quality goods moves into the space they have vacated. Hopefully, with the new library being built, Bishopdale Village Mall may shine again. Incidentally, do you know what is happening to the old library? Is it being refurbished for another use, pulled down or what?

impact on local communities that needs to be weighed as well. It’s not just rural communities that suffer when banking services are withdrawn. Suburban centres suffer just as badly, as it draws people away from their local community. The city council needs to be proactive in supporting suburban shops. Christchurch is a city of villages, and walkable neighbourhood shops that knit our communities together. • Anthony Rimell is standing as a city council candidate in the Waimairi Ward

Anthony Rimell, of Sydenham – For anyone who has a passion to see the north-west of our city thrive, this decision is a major blow. The impending closure of the Westpac branch at the Bishopdale Village Mall is of tremendous concern to me. Clearly, businesses need to make sound commercial decisions, but there is a deeper

Our People Living the dream of telling stories Emily Burns, 23, of St Albans, has had a whirlwind year in musical theatre playing leading roles in Mary Poppins and the second wife of Argentine president, Eva Peron, in Showbiz Christchurch’s recent production of Evita. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding about those productions, her dream role, and her love for composer Andrew Lloyd Webber Tell me about what this year has been like for you? I have loved this year. It started off in the summer playing an alternative for Mary Poppins at The Court Theatre. Then I jumped straight into Mamma Mia! which was so much fun. All of these roles in shows are completely different. I am such a theatre nerd and love tackling every new role. Then I went to Invercargill and was hosted by the wonderful team down at Invercargill Musical Theatre and we put on Mary Poppins. It was magical to be able to have Mary myself . After that it was straight into Evita and now I am going to play the understudy of Elle Woods for Legally Blonde for the Court Theatre’s summer season and an ensemble role. It will be fun. chihuahuas, bull dogs and lots of pink. Do you have a favourite role

you have played this year? Eva Peron definitely. She is just something else. The journey of her young self at 15 all the way through to her premature death at 33. I find her fascinating and I love the fact she was a real woman who made such an impact on these people’s lives and on Argentine history. It is one of those roles I feel extremely lucky to play. What do you think of Eva Peron as a person and the way she was portrayed in the show? It is interesting because obviously in history and audiences there is going to be divided opinion about her. But people always say she slept her way to the top but she didn’t sleep her way to stay at the top, you know, she did a lot of good for the poor descamisadoes. She managed to build hundreds of orphanages and schools, housing for people

who never had that kind of support before. She is incredibly stubborn and a determined woman that doesn’t back down. And I take it you are a huge fan of the composer of the show Andrew Lloyd Webber​? Oh, he has just got such a way with music hasn’t he. Every time I do a show of his it just surprises

me. There is so many hidden gems in the music score that are so powerful. I did Phantom of the Opera with Showbiz Christchurch last year and the first show I ever did was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Andrew Lloyd Webber shows are always a huge spectacle.

Yes, and I especially love when Showbiz Christchurch does them because they have these stunning orchestras. There is something about live music. We go downstairs to warm-up in the pit and the orchestra is just slowly coming in and getting their instruments tuned. That is one of my favourite parts of the show because I love coming down with the musicians because we kind of live in separate worlds in the show. Looking at all the reviews in Evita, all the reviewers have had positive things to say about your performance. What do you think of it all? Did you feel like there was a bit of pressure? The reviews were extremely generous and so lovely. There was a bit of pressure. As soon as the show starts you have just got to forget everything else and focus and telling the story as truthfully as you can. It is knowing and trusting the work we put in at rehearsals. Would this be the most challenging role you have played? Yes, 100 per cent. First up the music is complex. It is verging on opera on the fact there isn’t much dialogue. So everything said is sung.

through music So for that to sound natural and seem like a conversation. The composer has to do a lot of changing of the keys, time signatures and rhythms. It took me a long time to feel comfortable in that. On the technical side of things there are a lot of costume changes. There is that whole added element of am I going to make it out on stage fully clothed tonight and with the right wig on. When you first got into NASDA did you really think you would be able to make a full career out of performing? Oh, my gosh it was definitely a dream that felt very far away. It is just taking baby steps. Having the confidence in yourself and working hard. I never stop learning, I am constantly researching and practising.   Do you have a dream role you would like to play after doing big roles already? I would love to play the witch Elphaba in the musical Wicked one day. Just have all that green face painting, would love it.

What actually got you into theatre? It is funny. I love Walt Disney movies and ever since I could talk I would sit in front of the TV and say the words. I would watch TV so much I would say the words of the characters and sing all the songs. That was kind of and indicator to my parents

they should probably get me some singing lessons so it is more pleasant for them. Tell me about what you like to do outside of theatre? Things I enjoy doing is I love food and cooking. I love going down to the Christchurch Farmers Market and stocking up on lots of fresh food. I am often making curries. I also love op-shopping. In the city there are lot of great op-shops. I love TV shows as well. There is some really high quality programmes coming up with some incredible acting. I see it as research-watching actors do what they do best. Is there anything you try to advocate through the performing arts? The more people come out and enjoy it. I know it is hard in this day and age to justify sometimes a ticket to these kind of shows. With the array of entertainment we have at our hands literally. I am thankful for the amount of people who come out to the theatre and enjoy live story-telling.

Native Plant Destination An increasing demand and interest in native plants has resulted in the expansion of The Native Plant Nursery into Christchurch. Originally the Taupo Native Plant Nursery, the company has been growing steadily since 1961 when it first began supplying native plants for reserves, forests and national parks. The Marshlands area of Christchurch has long been associated with plants and market gardens, so it is the ideal venue for a niche business like the Native Plant Nursery. With large scale landscaping contracts, regeneration projects and three nurseries nationwide, expansion southwards has brought 98 years of collective native plant experience within the national team to our doorstep. Comprising a wholesale nursery complex and a 10 acre property to raise plants, the Native Plant Nursery is


basically a plant factory. As well as mainstream natives, there is ample scope to produce other plants of interest and by growing on-site, the home gardener reaps the benefit of lower prices.

While best known for eco-sourced natives, the nurseries are branching out, literally, into edible varieties, bedding plants and fruit trees. So expect to see Heuchera and camellias thriving alongside raspberry canes and coprosmas! In addition to developing a flourishing native plant outlet in Christchurch, the company’s other long term goal is to become involved in community education projects with local schools and organisations. So why not revisit the green zone of Marshlands and discover a gardening destination that’s new, natural and native!

Rewarding kindness in the community Breens Intermediate spent term three looking for opportunities to “pay it forward” and recognise some of the good sorts in the local community. Pupils volunteered their time and skills to workplaces and community settings. Others went out and cleaned up the local community and gifted “random acts of kindness” to neighbours. Pupils invited “good sorts” in for an afternoon tea and presented them with projects which recognised the kindness they show towards others. The term finished with an afternoon tea and music performance for residents from Bethesda Retirement Home and an evening market with food and entertainment for the school and wider community.

Selwyn House pupils complete rail trail PUPILS, PARENTS and teachers of Selwyn House completed the Otago Rail Trail last week. The challenging 152km bike ride follows the former route of the Otago Central Railway. It was the 11th year that the school has taken year 8 pupils on the track. A school spokesman said it was a fantastic week with stunning weather, scenery and lots of memorable experiences. “It was great fun but challenging at times and the girls deserve to feel very proud of their achievement.” •“Day-Cation” page 15

THEY’RE OFF: With their bikes at the ready, pupils start their trek.

EXCITED: Selwyn House pupils, parents and teachers show their excitement after completing the journey.

SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN Kidsbase pupils from the north-west put on their design hats for a Legomania Day. The team from House of Bricks visited the Rangiora programme with more than 100,000 Lego pieces. Children were given challenges and themes to create their own masterpieces, which included landscapes, mosaics and racing a Lego car.

QUICKEST CAR: Lukan Snopovs built the fastest racer in the build and race Lego car challenge.

PROMOTING THE GAME: Johnny McNicholl and other Canterbury rugby players got out into the community to promote the Take a Kid to Footy programme. They packed groceries at Fresh Choice Merivale, posed for a few photos and even gave out a bit of advice to up and coming players. Canterbury’s next match is against North Harbour at AMI Stadium on Friday at 7.35pm. It will be the first defence of the Ranfurly Shield, which they recently took from Waikato.

HUNTING: Zak Hunt looks for the perfect piece out of the thousands around him to add to his boat.

St Margaret’s looking to improve at nationals

Water polo champs „„ By Andrew King CHRIST THE King Catholic School’s B grade water polo team have won their competition, booking a spot in the Canterbury Championships this month. They overcame Heaton Normal Intermediate A 3-2 in the final. Sport co-ordinator Olivia Gill said there was a bit of rebuilding to do with the team. “The boys have been fully committed to giving it their best shot and, with weekly trainings last term, we were able to see the great progress of the team,” she said. Past pupils Jake Rochford

and Ryan Crosbie took over the coaching reins after a successful campaign last year. The squad will also compete in the South Island Championships at the end of October.

ST MARGARET’S College will look to return to netball’s top echelon at the New Zealand secondary schools’ championship in Upper Hutt this week. The school has become a regular at the national tournament. They finished second in 2014, but will be looking to bounce back this year after finishing outside the top eight in the 16-team competition last year. The team has been a dominant force in the local competition, winning their sixth straight Canterbury schools’ title in August. They then went on to finish fifth at the South Island tournament, which qualified them for nationals. Their final preparation ahead of the national championship included a three-day training camp last week, with the school holidays allowing them to dedicate the entire time to netball. St Margaret’s has a wealth of experience guiding the team. Former Silver Fern player and current New Zealand under-21 coach Julie Seymour has joined the team’s coaching staff alongside long-time coach Helen

Bryant. They were also joined by Canterbury Tactix defender Zoe Walker at the camp. “Julie comes with so much experience and knowledge. We also have Helen, who has been my coach since I was a junior, and getting Zoe to come in is just really cool,” said St Margaret’s captain Lily Marshall. The girls’ face a tough draw in Upper Hutt. They will play South Island

champion’s St Hilda’s Collegiate in pool play. St Margaret’s lost their previous meeting with St Hilda’s 40-44. They also play St Kentigern College and Palmerston North Girls’ High School in their pool. “It’s going to be really tough. The North Island teams always pose plenty of challenges. They seem to grow them bigger and stronger up there,” said Seymour. St Andrew’s College will also take part in the tournament,

Southern Institute Ensuring a safe of Technology work place Monique VanRooyen is a perfect example of how the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) assists full time workers to move forward in their career. Working in administration at SIT for nine years, Monique jumped at the opportunity to upskill in her Administration Management career with the National Certificate in Project Management (Level 4) in June 2016. The 18-week blended delivery course not only offered the content she needed to take a

step forward, but its flexible hours made both studying and working viable, she said. “The biggest benefit is being able to do the course outside of work hours and also the fact that lectures are fortnightly, which allows time to complete each assignment.” Though only half way through the Project Management certificate, she said it had already increased her confidence to talk in front of large groups and had given her a better understanding of Monique VanRooven business dealings. “I enjoy the tutor’s lecturing style, he has a lot of industry based knowledge and experience in this area which enables us to grasp the concepts [of Project Management] a lot easier.” Monique said she would “definitely” recommend the course to anyone interested in a managing environment on any level, especially those looking to excel in their existing role.

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.

Dr Keith Chiang has operated the Fendalton Dental Surgery since relocating from the CBD in 2011. He has special interest in complex oral surgical procedures and intravenous sedation, whilst looking after his wonderful patients with general dentistry skills. Due to increased demand for cosmetic and geriatric dentistry, Keith approached Dr Zohnia McNeill, an

experienced clinician with a proven clinical track record, to join his team. “Zohnia is a professional with extremely high standards and is very precise; something her patients appreciate, along with her relaxed friendly manner,” says Keith. Zohnia and Keith will focus on their specific and passion-driven dentistry niches. Zohnia will work on the cosmetic side of the practice, looking after general checkups and dentistry work including partial and full denture work, root canal treatments, implant crowns, porcelain crowns, bridges and veneers. Keith will concentrate on his special area interest: surgical procedures including impacted wisdom teeth, correction of soft and hard tissue lesions, surgical implant placements, and providing intravenous sedation where required. Patients, who decide it is time to transition to dentures, perhaps due to extensive tooth loss or long-term gum disease, will benefit from both Zohnia and Keith’s skills. Zohnia will make the new dentures then Keith will surgically extract the teeth and deliver the dentures so patients need not go elsewhere for this service.

The warm friendly team welcomes you to come and experience expert clinical care. Working alongside Keith and Zohnia are two fully qualified dental assistants, Helen and Megan with Aysha on reception as the patient’s care co-ordinator. The warm friendly team welcomes you to come and experience expert clinical care. Fendalton Dental Surgery is open Monday to Friday, from 8.30am until 5pm, located at the high profile corner of Idris and Glandovey Roads. They can be contacted on 351 1188 or by email: fendaltondental@

Advanced Weight Management Support + GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD is the latest in Natural Weight Management Support to hit the market. It contains three well researched herbal extracts in optimum amounts to support weight management as well as offer surprising benefits for good health. An extract of the purple rind of Mangosteen contains an amazing group of compounds called Xanthones. Xanthones may support weight loss by helping normalising a slow metabolism (common as we age), improving digestive function and nutrient absorption, acting as a powerful appetite suppressant by promoting synthesis of glycogen in the body (With adequate levels of glycogen the brain receives a signal to suppress the appetite), increasing energy and activity levels (but non stimulating) as well as supporting fat metabolism. Xanthones also offer amazing health support in other ways. They contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals as well as some of the most powerful antioxidant nutrients found in nature that may help slow the aging process, ward off degenerative diseases and physical and mental deterioration. East Indian Globe Thistle has been shown to increase the levels of the hormone adiponectin which encourages food to be burned as energy rather than stored as fat. When East Indian Globe Thistle is combined with Xanthones weight

loss is potentiated as shown in an eight week study of 100 people on a calorie controlled diet with exercise where half the participants took the combination of the two herbs. Weight loss benefits, including a reduction in hip and waist size were significantly increased in the 50 people using the combination of East Indian Globe Thistle & Xanthones compared to those on diet and exercise alone. The third ingredient Garcinia Cambogia is a source of hydroxycitric acid or HCA. HCA can help burn fat for energy, help stop the formation of fat from excess calories in the diet, while reducing the appetite as well as food cravings. It has become one of the most popular weight loss supplements for this reason. Garcinia Cambogia also increases your serotonin levels which can improve mood and sleep. One of the big problems today is we eat much more than we need. This excess eating has been shown to lead to serious health issues as well as a shorter life span. GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD contains three powerful natural ingredients to support a healthy weight as well as the potential to support improved body function. Further information is available from the Natural Health Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are Always Happy to Help!

Take a trip with Third Aged Tours Taking people aged over 50 on trips around New Zealand and the world for nearly 20 years has earned Third Age Tours a brag book that Director Brenda CorbyYarrall says “businesses would give their eye teeth for.’’ Taking small groups of 10 – 24 people means I can operate the tour in a relaxed, companionable manner. We have an absolute blast when we’re away. It’s all about having fun. Most of my trips are run annually because they’re so popular, but I’m always adding new destinations - like “Sicily, South Italy & Vatican” + “Cuba”, as people ask for them. Brenda checks out all accommodation before booking it, and ensures the party spends at least a few nights at each place. That way you don’t feel like you’re living out of a suitcase.

Duchenne Improve Dental circulation & feel better

With 12 clinics from Kaiapoi to Invercargill, Duchenne Dental Services provides a modern, professional and welcoming service to their clients throughout Canterbury and the South Island. The team at Duchenne Dental offer first-time and replacement full and partial dentures. With the aid of digital scanning technology they also hand craft high-end aesthetic and precision fit dentures. All products are constructed with injection moulded acrylics and elastomers. This means a greater effort is placed on creating a comfortable and well aligned finished denture. This is to ensure that patients who wear dentures made by Duchenne will have confidence to eat, talk and smile naturally. Experienced technicians also work on the protection of remaining natural teeth with custom fitted mouthguards. This is a must for those in contact sports like rugby. A custom fitted mouthguard provides far more protection and better design to the stock “ boil and bite” products. Not only is it about protecting teeth or replacing missing teeth, Duchenne are about providing dental services. This allows the team to assist patients who suffer from

snoring or sleep apnoea. Snoring affects approximately 50-60% of all adults. Often snoring can affect persons in many ways, from long haul travelling to sleeping with your partner. This can be minimised and treated with snoring appliances, designed and crafted at Duchenne Dental. With the latest in technology and crafting techniques, patients can trust their smile and dental care to the Duchenne team. EAT. TALK. SMILE. Duchenne Dental Services.

Poor circulation is often caused by inactivity of the leg muscles, due to age, illness, sitting or standing long periods. The heart pumps blood to all parts of the body in order to: • supply oxygen and nutrients to every cell. • keep the body temperature stable. • remove waste from the body Good blood flow is essential to nourish cells, tissue and bone. It is critical for wellbeing and energy. When blood flow is restricted health issues occur - cold feet and hands, swollen ankles, cramps, numb feet, aching and restless legs, abrasions and ulcers do not heal Boost circulation with any type of movement, massage and stretching. If strenuous exercise is impossible, try Tai Chi or work feet and hands with an Aircycle circulation booster while you sit in

Changes at the Russley Road/ Wairakei Road roundabout


From mid-October,* the layout of the Russley Road/Wairakei Road roundabout will be removed. Wairakei Road on the western (airport) side of Russley Road will be closed. While on the eastern side there will only be left out from Wairakei Road onto Russley Road and left in to Wairakei Road from Russley Road. N


SCHOOL SPIRIT: Rangi Ruru’s Dunvegan Clan perform at the term three singing competition. ​







Cycle route

Rangi Ruru celebrates its connection to Scotland




HOW TO USE THE NEW LAYOUT • To go north on State Highway 1 from Wairakei Road, turn left from Wairakei Road onto State Highway 1 and do a u-turn through the Memorial Avenue/Russley Road (SH1) intersection (or large roundabout at present). • If you are coming from the south on State Highway 1 and want to access Wairakei Road, do a u-turn around the Harewood Road roundabout and then a left turn into Wairakei Road, or make a turn right at Memorial Avenue and use Roydvale Avenue. As part of the upgrade of Russley Road, these changes are necessary for traffic safety, as certain distances are needed for traffic merging on and off the main road/highway. Wairakei Road is too close to Memorial Ave for this to be possible.

If you are travelling to/from the airport, please be aware of the new layout and allow EXTRA TRAVEL TIME as delays are possible. More information on the Russley Road Upgrade can be found at

*This date is weather dependent and motorists will be kept informed by signs on-site.

RANGI RURU Girls’ School delivered singing, dancing and colour with a healthy dose of fun at their annual clan singing competition before heading off on holiday. Dressed in clan colours, students competed to see which group performed the best song, choreographed to dance moves. “The only thing better than singing is more singing,” student Ella Fitzgerald said. Dunvegan Clan won this part of the competition with a stunning performance. They accumulated points

that will go towards the final result at the end of the year. The 2015 Clan Trophy holders are Braemar, who won the title last year for the first time in 44 years. The performances were judged by two guest judges from Christ’s College and two members of staff from Rangi Ruru. Clan co-ordinator and year 13 dean Leigh Allan said the concept behind the clans is to form connections between year levels to foster community spirit. “It’s fun, colourful and very, very loud,” she said. “The clans compete in a

number of different events during the year and clan singing is definitely one of the highlights. Girls get to show their creativity through music and they really enjoy dressing up and working together and it is a great way to celebrate the end of a very busy term,” she said. The clans, led by two year 13 students, are made up of girls from across years 7 to 13. They were named after Scottish castles, including Balmoral, Braemar, Doune, Dunevegan, Glamis and Stirling, celebrating the school’s Presbyterian heritage.

Trial an electric bike for free THE CITY council transport innovation fund has approved an eight-month project so commuters can trial an e-bike, for free, for two weeks. Transport policy planner Nick Lovett said the e-bike trial concept was one of three projects to win funding this year. Electric bikes are becoming increasingly popular with commuters. “People will be able to get an e-bike, on loan, for a free two-week trial. This project’s goal is to help you discover how an e-bike could be a mode of transport that’s right for you, without having you commit to buying one at the onset,” Mr Lovett said. “E-Bikes are an example of an emerging transport technology we don’t have a good understanding of and getting

people to experience them as a commuting option gives us an insight into how they might become a mainstream mode of transport in future. I’m really excited about the trials and what we might learn from the user experience.’’ Action Bicycle Club co-founder Ken Ching will be running the trial and said he wanted people to take away a fresh perspective on commuting.

“We want to give them an informed experience about e-bikes and to encourage citizens to engage in active transportation that helps reduce traffic congestion, pollution and ultimately improve the city for people, not vehicles,” he said. The trial begins on November 1 this year, with four electric bikes and one electric cargo bike available for loan to successful applicants.
