Sisters have big plans Miss Chu was born in Christchurch. Both sisters said they were “very excited” to be on the community board. Said Ms Chen: “I am very excited my sister is on a community board as well as she is so young.” She said her priority is to get traffic lights for the Breens, Gardiners and Harewood Rds intersection. “I am hoping, being the youngest on the Harewood board, to utilise that youth and energy and be that approachable person that really makes a difference,” she said. At the top of Miss Chu’s list is to bring ethnic groups together, and deal with traffic congestion and parking issues. Having a strong interest in foreign language and culture, Miss Chu has been studying Chinese and Japanese part time at Canterbury University on top of her job. “From a really young age I had enjoyed listening to other people and I was really excited when I knew I could be able to help people make their lives better,” Miss Chu said.

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding, Andrew King SISTERS CATHERINE Chu and Linda Chen have made their entrance into local body politics at the same time but on different community boards. At 20-years-old Miss Chu is the youngest community board member in the city, representing Riccarton, while sister Ms Chen, 27, was elected to represent Harewood. Ms Chen received 3391 votes to take her place on the FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board. Aaron Campbell will take the other spot after receiving 2602 votes. Miss Chu, a Westpac business bank manager, received 2074 votes getting the nod alongside long-time local body politician Helen Broughton receiving 2457 to take the two spots on the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board. Ms Chen moved to New Zealand with her parents from South Korea when she was five-years-old while

Tuesday October 11 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THERE IS a new face representing the west of the city after the local body elections at the weekend – Anne Galloway. She slipped in by the tightest of margins – just 97 votes – but as Caitlin Miles found out, she has a very interesting background working with children and social services (page 3). She will be one to watch over the next three years. Joining her is incumbent Jimmy Chen in the newly established Hornby Ward and Vicki Buck elected unopposed in the Riccarton Ward. Familiar face Peter Laloli is out of local body politics after failing to get elected both to the city council and community board. He takes it on the chin as you would expect (page 3). Voter turnout was in a word – dismal. Just 38 per cent of the city voted. I’m not sure what the solution is. Thoughts? Hei kona – Shelley Robinson

Ready for council role

Fashion „„ By Caitlin Miles and Georgia O’Connor-Harding LOCAL BODY politics is a far cry from helping troubled children in London schools but newly elected city councillor Anne Galloway says she’s up for the job. After Saturday’s election results, Mrs Galloway won the new Halswell Ward by 97 votes over Chrys Horn. Yesterday, Mrs Galloway went straight back to work at Rowley Ave School as part of her role with Family Help Trust, a role she will resign from to concentrate on her new job. She has been coordinator of the learning programme for five years and before that she spent a year in London with primary children who had been expelled from school. It is a big change for Mrs Galloway, who is aligned with political group The People’s Choice, but the reason she made the change was primarily because of her grandchildren. “They were a big part of my motivation, I want my grandchildren to have the best they can,” Mrs Galloway said.


Motoring NEW ROLE: Anne Galloway will step down from her role working with children to focus on her role as Halswell Ward city councillor. ​ wider Halswell community. Mrs Galloway was raised Mrs Galloway will be joined in Hoon Hay and while the by fellow The People’s Choice area falls out of the new ward boundary she said she has been incumbent city councillor Jimmy Chen , who won the making connections with the

new Hornby Ward with 3403 votes, and Vicki Buck who was elected unopposed. Meanwhile, after sitting around the community board table for about 15 years, Peter Laloli is out of local body politics. Receiving 1334 votes, Mr Laloli (right) finished third in the city council race behind Mrs Galloway and Ms Horn. He failed to get on the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board finishing third again, to Debbie Mora on 3395 and Ross McFarlane on 3125. Mr Laloli said while he was disappointed he wasn’t reelected, he wished the newly elected candidates well. “I thought that being a new area they were somewhere that needed experience but anyway these things happen. It’s politics, if you can’t afford to lose you shouldn’t stand,” he said. Prior to working on the community board, Mr Laloli worked as a senior sergeant in Hornby for about 25 years.

Bowie tribute picked up by School pupils feature in documentry VILLA MARIA College student Jordan Price will feature in an international documentary after a David Bowie tribute song she was involved in got picked up by an Italian filmaker. The song, Starman in the Stars, was written and performed by Mandi Miller, Mark Wilson and their band All the Queen’s Horses and a choir of school pupils. Italian film project Ritratti will be using the music video in a collective multi-media film called BowieNext. Ms Miller, of Woolston, is overjoyed with the news, saying she had hoped the track would get snapped up and used. “I have been promoting it and been trying to find people that are making David Bowie

documentaries, so this is really exciting,” she said. Pupils from Sumner School, Redcliffs School, Heathcote Valley School, Cashmere High School, Burnside High School, St Margaret’s College and Marian College also helped record the track at Orange Studios in Ferrymead. It was made as a tribute to the late David Bowie who passed away in January this year. “They all learnt the chorus and held down the main melody and I improvised over top of them. Their voices really stand out. The added element of the children in the video was really significant to me because Bowie was still making music up until he passed and I think they’re a new generation of Bowie

fans,” she said. Ms Miller has been a singing teacher at Sumner School for nearly 10 years and she also teaches at Redcliffs School. The 26 students that feature are current and former singing students of hers. “There are some really good voices out there and the children are such good kids. They’re kind and considerate people but, vocally, I’ve had some amazing singers come through,” she said. Mr Wilson and Ms Miller make up the cover duo X-Files and are also a part of the rock band Retrosonic and All the Queen’s Horses. The duo are now working on there next video after filming a video in the United States of America.

Liquor store opposed „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding CONCERN IS growing over an application lodged for a new liquor store on Riccarton Rd, with opponents saying there are already too many in the area. PM Liquors Ltd has applied for a new off-licence liquor store to be situated at 76 Riccarton Rd, directly next to the Ministry of Social Development’s Work and Income. Issues raised by Riccarton residents include the number of liquor outlets based along Riccarton Rd and the close proximity to Work and Income. Riccarton Bush-Kilmarnock Residents’ Association chairman Tony Simons said, in his personal view, it was “inappropriate” to place a liquor store next door to Work and Income.  “Why would you put a casino or liquor outlet, or anything that encourages people to waste their money, next to Work and Income,” he said. He was also concerned at the number of liquor stores already in the area. Bars and liquor stores in the area include The Craic Irish Bar, Fox & Ferret Riccarton, Liquorland and Liquor King. ​ Mr Simons said he is not sug-

He said the residents’ association will make a submission opposing the applicaiton. Christchurch City missioner Michael Gorman questioned whether the city needed anymore liquor licences, saying great care needs to be taken on the location of alcohol outlets. “To position it right where there are very vulnerable people seems to be really unhelpful,” Mr Gorman said. But he said it is an issue that affects everyone – not just those

who are “vulnerable.” The intended operation times for the store would be Monday to Sunday, 9am-11pm. A public notification was released on September 27 and public objections can be received until October 18.  The Ministry of Social Development declined to comment on the issue and whether they would make an objection to the liquor store. The applicants could not be located for comment. HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of a new liquor store along Riccarton Rd? Email your views to georgia.

Concert celebrates band’s 125 years „„ By Caitlin Miles WOOLSTON BRASS has survived the Depression, two world wars, the February 22, 2011 earthquake and now it is marching into its 126th year. The band’s marketing and sponsorship manager Caroline Blackmore said since the band was formed in 1891 it had survived some ‘catastrophic’ events over the years but it has never stopped performing. The band celebrated its 125th birthday at the weekend when it hosted a concert, playing many of its own pieces and some old favourites. Miss Blackmore credits the bands past to its award-winning achievements. “It’s had a successful history. Championship wins have been really big for us and I think it’s part of the way we strive for music excellence,” Miss Blackmore said. Miss Blackmore is the second member of her family to be in the band. And she’s not the only one. “My dad was in the band before me and I there are a couple of others like us. We also have a wide age group from 19 to 70,” she said.

She said the band of 33 musicians had received over 25 awards, unsure of just how many it had won since it started. “It certainly has been a lot, with national and international competitions,” she said. Some of the band’s accolades include winning the Edinburgh Festival Contest, placing fifth in the 1975 British Open Championships and winning four national contests back to back. Music director Tyme Masters said the band had upheld its reputation at the latest competition it competed in. “At the national contest held in Napier this year, the band maintained its strong reputation with success in the solo and ensemble events,” Mr Masters said. Over the years it has also created eight albums, their latest, The Woolstonian, was released earlier this year as part of the birthday celebrations. The February 22, 2011 earthquake left the band’s Woolston building damaged and now it is looking for a new home. “We are looking for a site where we can build a purpose built studio and of course we want to stay in Woolston,” Miss Blackmore said.

PERFORMERS: The group of 33 musicians celebrated their birthday with a concert at the weekend. ​Below: Woolston Brass won the street march competition at the New Zealand Brass Band Championships in Napier earlier this year.

Our People

Providing welfare and a home Former Villa Maria College student Jessica Armstrong has been managing the Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre with her husband for more than a year. Annabelle Dick chats to her about the centre’s role in the community and the people they serve So first of all, what does the Lyttelton Seafarers’ Centre do? We provide a centre for all seafarers, so anyone who works on ships or in the port and we give them a home away from home. We give them a place to hang out, we provide free Wi-Fi as well so they can contact their friends and family because calling home that is the main thing they want to do when they get off the ship. We exchange foreign cash into New Zealand currency so they can buy stuff at the supermarket, or whatever they need, because there’s no bank in Lyttelton. We give away free warm clothes . . . we’ve given away about 50 winter coats and hats and scarves. We also provide them with free food and drinks. Basically, its all of that and we give them someone to talk to if they want to talk to someone. How many people do you get coming through your doors? We fluctuate a lot depending on the amount of ships in the

port, our maximum is about 28 and some nights we only get a handful. On average we get about 12 people per night. We opened in July last year and we’ve served close to 3500 people from all over the world. The main places they come from are the Philippines, Russia and Ukraine. You must have heard a lot of interesting stories then? Yes, they’re all a very different bunch of people and we have them all in at the same time so it makes for a very interesting centre. How many people work at the centre? We’ve got 20 regular volunteers at the moment and we have about 10 people in training who have just started their training. Everyone is a volunteer. What were seafarers doing before the centre existed? They used to hang out outside the library where there was free Wi-Fi but they didn’t have any

shelter. When we first started we walked up the road to go and collect them and they were sitting outside in very cold temperatures in winter and they just wanted to contact home. We give them somewhere to be because there’s not a lot open in Lyttelton at night unless you’re a bar. What kind of feedback do you get from the seamen you

have come in? They do really appreciate what we do and even if they do speak very little English they express it non-verbally with big smiles. Most of them thank us at the end of the night. A lot of the Filipino men are away from their young families so they’ll get on Skype at the centre and show us their families and their babies so that’s

really lovely to see when they might not be able to otherwise. As it’s a free service, how important are time and monetry contributions? We provide them with free Wi-Fi and we have a heat pump and things like that and we don’t have high costs as such but we need to fund the continual running costs.

away from home for seafarers We’re wanting to spread the news about who we are and what we do and that we’re always looking out for new volunteers because we’d like to be open every afternoon and every evening, but we’re not there yet. We’re open Monday to Friday every week in the evenings and every second Saturday and some afternoons. Where does the funding come from? The centre is run by a trust administered by Anglicans and Catholics. We’ve signed up with the Lyttelton Harbour Timebank to help with supplying clothes for the seamen. Charles Shadbolt from Independent Fisheries has made the site temporarily rentfree until a permanent site is found. The Lyttelton Port Company has donated some funds, food is supplied by the Salvation Army and local fundraisers help towards paying for necessities. What have some of the highlights been during the time you’ve volunteered there? Definitely meeting people from all over the world who live quite a difficult life in some respects away from friends and family doing difficult jobs. Sometimes they get treated very well and sometimes they don’t so

CONTACT POINT: Seafarers make calls back home to their families in the Philippines.

VOLUNTEERS: Jessica Armstrong and her husband Rob on holiday in Asia two years ago.

having conversations with them is nice. You can tell they really appreciate just having someone to talk to and sharing a little bit of their lives with someone. I love all the amazing volunteers because we wouldn’t be able to do anything without them they just open their hearts by doing this once a week or once a fortnight so this has been a really awesome experience.

What are your hopes for the future of the centre? My hope is that we’d be able to open for longer so we were there if people wanted to use the centre. So are you originally from Christchurch? Yes, I grew up in Christchurch and I went to Villa Maria College. My husband is also from Christchurch. We moved to Wellington where I did my com-

merce degree in management and HR and a BA in information systems at Victoria University. I stayed there for about three years after I finished. My partner and I moved back to Christchurch in January of last year. What prompted you to become a part of the centre? The centre itself is run by the Anglican and Catholic churches so when I was living in Wellington and was at mass on a Sunday they asked if someone could help out as a volunteer one night a week so I signed up for that with my husband for two years and then we moved back to Christchurch and became the volunteer managers at the Lyttelton centre. Did you ever see yourself getting involved in work like this?

Not really. The opportunity just occurred . . . I didn’t predict something like this would happen and I’d be volunteering my time outside of work so I was out of the blue in that respect. People really needed us especially in Lyttelton where the centre had just started and they didn’t have anybody that had the experience to manage it. When you’re not with the centre, what are you doing? I work outside of the centre as well so I do software development. I work most of the week in Auckland so I travel there quite often. At the moment it’s about three days in Auckland a week and two days in Christchurch. I’m pretty busy so yeah it’s a bit of a challenge.

Readers respond to an article on whether motorists should be charged for parking at Jellie Park Recreation and Sports Centre or be given free things if they cycle or take the bus, in a bid to reduce parking issues at the facility. Gary Knight, of Hoon Hay – While the issue of car parking fees at Jellie Park evolves as a platform of debate, reality must prevail. The innovation by the Fendalton-Waimari Community Board to offer free food, towels and discount cards for those choosing to cycle to this venue, while commendable, is rife with anomalies. It would be virtually impossible to police those who cycled also any arriving there and producing a helmet merely to capitalise on the discount offer. Cycling or utilising public transport will always be ongoing by those motivated to choose this option of travel, devoid of the necessity for discounts for this realistic decision. If 114 car parks is deemed insufficient to cater for 238,024 personnel between the summer months of December 2015 and March 2016, then the reality is to add more. However, charging a fee for them is a retrograde step

Cover a burning pot with its lid and contravenes the very nature of a public amenity. The criteria of the 2015-2025 Long Term City Council Plan to operate grants as a contributory factor towards community building is surely the catalyst for required funding of this community upgrade of extended car parking within projected council budgeting. Glynis Condon, Burnside – I am 74 years of age and go to Jellie Park five days a week for aqua exercise classes and I don’t think we should have to pay for parking at the pool. There are all ages and abilities that go to the park be it for the gym or the pool and I can’t imagine that most of them would want to bike to their classes.

like a lid or oven tray. That’s really all. There’s not a huge difference between a fire that’s a nuisance and one that’s a tragedy. That’s why fire is so damned dangerous. It’s pet and animal time. Three cats, including a wild one, with not one caught up a tree, were rescued by intrepid fire crews around the city this week. And of course it’s duckling season again which meant one careless ducking pulled from a hole in Goodman St, Burwood, last Monday evening. Almost certainly won’t be the last.

WESTERN NEWS Children put their stealth skills to the test recently in the Air Force Museum of New Zealand’s latest school holiday programme, Spy Games. As part of the programme, children had to negotiate a laser field made of string, rescue an Air Force Museum agent and search for a “dangerous device” to save the day. The programme was for children aged between five and 12.

SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN READY SET GO: Finnias McGurk, of Halswell, raced through a field of “laser” string with Air Force Museum education officer Chris Davey.

CHILLED OUT DAY: Tyler Forster, Chen Zhang and Marcos Little at HOYTS Riccarton recently. They enjoyed a fun day watching The Secret Life of Pets as part of the Russley Rascals holiday programme. Programme director Yvonne Straman said the children made “popcorn hands.”

CLIMB: Jaxson Stove, of Halswell, was careful not to be zapped by “laser” string.

Classic TV comedy on stage Dad’s Army Produced by Cas ‘n’ Ova Productions Directed by Craig Hutchison and Rebecca Wakelin Reviewed by Georgia O’Connor-Harding Cas ‘n’ Ova has put on a humorous production about an endearing army of men too old or “unfit” for military service during World War 2. If you didn’t laugh throughout the show, you were certainly in the minority. Chuckles could be heard for most of the production, which I am sure would have been an interesting experience for some of the fairly new actors to the showbiz scene. Based on the BBC comedy, Dad’s Army recounts the misadventures of a voluntary defence force known as the Home Guard. Considering some of the actors had barely any acting experience at all, the cast put in a solid effort. And it was great a seasoned director such as Craig Hutchison took on board fresh-faced actors willing to give theatre a go.

COMICAL SHOW: Ray Williamson as Lance Corporal Jones and Mike MacLeod as Captain Mainwaring.

Mike MacLeod pulled off the role of Captain Mainwaring well. I loved the expressive pout he would make when he was angry. I saw many of those pouts

particularly during a comical but disastrous date with Mrs Gray where Mainwaring was continuously interrupted by his soldiers.

Like many of the cast, MacLeod had an uncanny resemblance to the original Captain Mainwaring, played by Arthur Lowe, which I think any

Dad’s Army fan would adore. It was unfortunate MacLeod was dealing with a distracting cough, which is understandably difficult to deal with. He did his best, but it tainted what was a strong performance. Peter Watt, playing the role of Private Frazer, was a hit with the audience. Being a Scot himself, his accent was spot-on – but it was that classic blokey demeanour that gave him a great stage presence. Occasionally it looked as though the actors missed their cues and there seemed to be a bit of over-acting but, at the same time, these small imperfections added to the show’s comical value. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this show. It wasn’t a full-scale professional production but the cast deserves to be acknowledged, particularly for their charisma. It was clear they enjoyed being up on stage and I think they would have had a lot of fun putting this show together. Go to the show not for perfection, but for a good night out. •The show finished on Saturday.

In the front row at fashion week Annabelle Dick reports on Ballantynes Fashion Week WALKING THROUGH the doors of The Contemporary Lounge, two polite doormen welcomed me and ushered me upstairs towards the launch party of Ballantynes Fashion Week. I was poured a glass of Daniel Le Brun bubbles and escorted to my seat in the atrium, where beautiful white flowers adorned the main stage and a long catwalk came out from in between the flora. There I saw hundreds of eager fashionistas lined up like dominoes along the catwalk in wait of the latest spring and summer trends. As luxurious as it was, the event wasn’t restricted to the elite in search of the most avantgarde pieces for their designer wardrobe. Ballantynes Fashion Week was more of a come one, come all-

type affair. The opening night show was full of colour, excitement and fresh ideas. The show felt like a garden tea party on a warm

spring day and the collections fitted the memo spot on. In the spirit of spring, I found the denim range refreshing. The assortment was diverse – from

garments with just a hint of denim to floor-length denim dresses. My favourite ensemble of the evening was the resort look, featuring the Isaac Lulu Vinnie pant. The model was dressed impeccably head to toe and I was an absolute sucker for those wide leg pants – those are my biggest must-have at the moment. While I’m a big advocate of black and white, I felt the monochrome wear was a bit off. The prints screamed “I’m in my

early 40s and I work in an office” and the outfits looked shifty and uncomfortable. Ballantynes Fashion Week also featured a mums and bubs day, a menswear and beer event and an Art in Fashion Day for Ara Institute of Canterbury students to showcase their garments. This is the second year Ballantynes has hosted a fashion week so maybe they’re still trying to find their feet, but I see their annual event, like a good wine, getting better with time.

Why top athletes use Chiropractic care Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps are among the many elite athletes who use a chiropractor to ensure they are performing at the top of their game. They see the benefit in not only training hard but keeping their body at optimum ability to ensure they can always get the best from it. You don’t need to be performing at this level of sport to see the benefits a chiropractor can make in your life to ensure your body is working at its peak. I provide physical solutions including adjustments, exercises, stretches and muscle therapy – to readjust the body or help it heal from conditions that are physical in origin. These can include problems such as back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and poor posture.

What you may not know is that it is also completely appropriate to receive chiropractic care even though you may not have symptoms. Unlike standard medical doctors who you visit when you have symptoms that need to be treated, chiropractors offer adjustments to improve spinal alignment and overall wellbeing – and can prevent the pain or other symptoms even starting. Going to a chiropractor is much the same as going to the dentist or gym or even leading a healthy life – it prevents problems from reaching critical stage where you can become incapacitated and as long as you keep up with regular visits, then you continue to enjoy the benefits of a life feeling well. I have been providing Chiropractic Care for patients for more than 15 years of and over that time I have gained outstanding results for my patients. These people have come to me for a variety of reasons, here are just some of them.

Accident or trauma Car or bike accidents and falls can cause severe spinal stress and subluxations If not attended to these can cause or contribute to health problems later in life. Active exercise/sport Chiropractic care gives you an edge. Many professional athletes and sportspeople seek regular chiropractic care to ensure they are working at their optimum. Pregnancy/Childbirth/Infant caring The hormonal and physical changes in pregnancy create spinal stress. The birth process can be traumatic for both mother and baby, and both may require care following delivery. Caring for a baby or infant can contribute to neck and/or back pain ie: position of mother during breast feeding and bending to pick up baby. If you would like to learn more about how I can assist you in any of these areas please contact me today.

Suffering illness,discomfort or pain These symptoms are signs of dysfunction in your body. This is a important time to remove nerve interference and irritation to ensure your spine functions optimally and symptoms are alleviated.

Southern Chiropractic, located at 290 halswell Road, is open Monday, Wednesday Thursday and Friday. on Tuesdays the clinic operates from Ashburton Chiropractic in Ashburton. For Tuesday bookings please phone 03 308 9516, or 03 322 1432. For all other bookings at the halswell location, please phone 03 322 1432 or email, or visit their website at for further information.

Migraine relief Krissy Winter saw an article in the local newspaper a year ago and having suffered from debilitating migraines wondered if the treatment would help her.

“My migraines were debilitating and they’d often come without warning. Sometimes once a week, but generally about once a month. I’d moved up from Dunedin where I’d managed them with my Osteopath, Yoga and Pilates. In Christchurch I was so reluctant to let anyone near my neck. I read the article and I must admit I wasn’t convinced and I went to the first appointment with a page

of all the concerns I had. The first time I met Laurie I remember walking out and feeling more in control. After about four treatments with Laurie and perfecting the technique she taught me I truly began to reap the benefits. Now I’m fantastic. If I feel a migraine coming on I now have the control to manage it myself, even stopping them from taking over, without needing someone to drive me in to the Osteopath

or the hospital for an injection to relieve the pain. With the technique Laurie taught me I’m armed and dangerous!” Many people suffer continually from headache and migraine pain not knowing what help is at hand from three specially trained Physiotherapists at Muscle People. In the past ten years, the understanding of what causes headaches and migraines has significantly changed. The research now shows that sensitisation of the brain stem is what causes this pain. Laurie, Clare and Naomi have trained in Australia in the Watson Approach which is proven to work. This method examines and treats the movements of the first three segments of the neck, which when sensitised cause headaches and migraines. “In our clinics we see people from as far away as Invercargill who come to us specially to seek treatment” says Laurie Moore, Director of Muscle People Physiotherapy. She says “The symposium in Australia we went to just recently reaffirmed the effectiveness of what we do, and honed our skills even more.” Generally patients will come to our clinic four or five times in the first few weeks of treatment.

UC student champion barefoot waterskier RECENTLY CROWNED Canterbury University sportsperson of the year Georgia Groen is the best female barefoot waterskier in the world. She won the overall open women’s title at the Barefoot Waterski World Championships held in Wisconsin, United States. Miss Groen was the first New Zealand barefoot waterskier to ever win the overall open world title. “It’s surreal. It’s something you dream about for so long.” Ever since she competed in her first world championships as a 12-year-old junior [under 17] in 2009 it had been her dream to become overall women’s world champion. In addition to the overall title, Ms Groen, 20, also obtained her third consecutive open world trick title, silver in open slalom, silver in open jump, and a bronze in the open team overall event. The week-long championships hosted 13 different countries and more than 100 athletes. The competition had three events: Slalom, tricks and jump. Each event was worth 1000 points with the overall place calculated by adding up how much each skier scored in each event. Ms Groen scored 2878.54 points with second placed Ashleigh Stebbings snapping at her heels with 2869.57 points – a difference of 8.97 points. Georgia, who lived in Otaki before moving to Christchurch to study for a Bachelor of Commerce degree at Canterbury University, took the second semester



Ensuring a safe work place



WORLD CHAMPION: UC commerce student Georgia Groen has won the Barefoot Waterski World Championships in the US.





off so she could train in the US before the championships. Her goal now is to get a barefoot skiing world record. “The person I was competing against who got second broke the world slalom and the world jump record at the competition. “So I would like to break one of them. “The world jump record is probably my biggest goal, which 21.9m, so I want to jump 22m.” “I’ve jumped 21.1m so far.”

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.

Development through drama is the ideal approach to teach confidence and channel youthful energy while building self-esteem. The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy has been in New Zealand for 32 years. This highly regarded worldwide programme helps students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their potential by acting confidently and speaking clearly. This unique, self-development programme helps achieve invaluable life skills. The confident, articulate child makes friends easily, accepts challenges and new directions. Confident children become well-rounded adults. Our fully qualified teachers are trained in the Helen O’Grady Drama system, they ensure each child is encouraged and valued in a warm, positive learning

environment. Lessons stimulate and motivate students without the exam or peer group pressure. Weekly class activities include speech training, creative movement and improvisation. Our Youth Theatre programme encourages the development of leadership and organisational skills. Three terms of the year cover the self-development programme and in the fourth term all students prepare a performance for parents and friends. We also offer Trinity College London examinations as an option for those who wish to pursue an international qualification. Our safe structured learning environment values student individuality and encourages team building. Most importantly its great fun too! Enrol now phone 0800 161 131 and see our website

REAL ESTATE Family versatility in private and peaceful setting 20 Dunrobin Place, Avonhead

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 living rooms | 2 car-garage | 3 off-street parks | Listing # 2867

Positioned at the end of a quiet culde-sac and enjoying a northerly aspect this 1970’s classic block home offers flexibility, function and will suit a myriad of family situations. An expansive, formal lounge opens out to the 663sqm grounds, enabling family and friends to enjoy the sun or dine alfresco. The crucial kitchen area – such a hub for families is brand sparkling new. Living areas are light and open welcoming the sun while retaining all-important privacy. With three generous double bedrooms upstairs, a northern balcony extends from two of the three bedrooms with vistas of the garden while also doubling as a sheltered sunroom. The décor throughout is neutral, allowing you to easily impact your own touches inside. Downstairs is a bit or a treat where this home showcases its options for different

family configurations. A fourth generous double bedroom, new bathroom and a separate toilet will allow you to have family separation when needed and accommodate guests when you like. The grounds are a safe environment for young children and pets with the address falling inside the Burnside High School and Merrin Primary School zone. A double garage with additional space for off-street parking puts an exclamation mark on the package here for your consideration – you simply must inspect our subject property. Immediate possession is available. Open homes Thursday and Sunday 12.30am-1.00pm. For a private viewing contact Peter or Kathryn Hampton of Harcourts St Albans - Holmwood (Licensed Agent REAA 2008) on 377 0377 or Peter mobile 021 367 761.
