Success celebrated Council

forced to build new pump station „„ By Bridget Rutherford

SUCCESS: The top students at Christchurch Boys’ High School, St Bede’s College and Papanui High School were revealed at prize-giving ceremonies last week. Devon Harding (above left) won the deans scholar for top all-rounder while George Young (right) was awarded dux at CBHS. James McCrea (top right) of St Bede’s and Papanui’s Juliet McLachlan were also awarded dux of their schools.

A NEW $7.4 million pump station will be built in Harewood to replace a shallow well at risk of contamination. The city council will build the pump station on the site of its Harewood Nursery on Gardiners Rd, with work hoped to begin in February. It will replace the previous Harewood Pump Station, which would be decommissioned as part of the work. It was less than 26m deep, taking water from an unconfined aquifer, which made it at risk of contamination. The new pump station would also provide for growth in the northwest of the city, specifically the Upper Styx residential greenfield development area. City council three waters and waste planning and delivery manager John Moore said the work

was part of its well replacement programme. He said the city council had an agreement with the Ministry of Health to decommission its shallow wells in the north-west of the city by June 30, 2018. “The council has accelerated its well replacement programme and by March 2017 no shallow wells will be used unless needed to provide additional water for peak demand during summer or for fire fighting. “ Once the Gardiners water supply pump station was built, the well replacement programme would be complete and there would be no need to use the shallow wells, he said. The new station would have two wells, a suction tank and water delivery pumps within a new building, emergency generator and pipelines to connect to the existing water supply network, he said. It is expected to be completed by June 2018.

Tuesday November 8 2016 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

IN TODAY’S paper we celebrate our young people who have worked so hard over the past year, not just academically, but in culture and sports. Pages 6, 7, 8 have the prizegiving lists for St Bede’s College, Papanui High School and Christchurch Boys’ High School and, in the coming weeks, we will also publish results of other high schools in the area. Congratulations to all students who have been recognised. Meanwhile, over at Selwyn House School (page 3), they are taking learning up a notch by teaching mechatronics to all pupils from pre-school to year 8. Basically, that means a combination of science, engineering, mathematics, with a bit of robotics. Very impressive indeed. Hei kona – Shelley Robinson

Looking for the next IT genius „„ By Andrew King SELWYN HOUSE School believes it could have the next Mark Zuckerberg in their midst. From next year, all pupils from the pre-school to year 8 will be taught mechatronics. It brings together science, technology, engineering, mathematics and a bit of art to teach pupils the basics of how robotic devices operate. Mr Zuckerberg invented Facebook in 2004 from his dormitory at Harvard University in the United States. Year 7 pupil Emma Cawood has really taken to the programming and said it is a huge opportunity for her. “It allows me to be creative because there is really no limit to what we can do. It has helped me with more knowledge in math and is really fun,” she said. Robotic and coding teacher Liz Fairhall said there is a massive need for women in information technology and this would provide a great pathway. “It really is going to push these girls into seeing that IT is an option as a career for them,” she said.

Christie said it will answer the question commonly asked by pupils – why do I need to know this? “Allowing pupils to put together a project using math, science and engineering shows them why they have spent time learning about those subjects,” he said. They will be setup in a technology hub, known as ‘The

Boiler House,’ which comes complete with 3D printers, Lego robot kits, Apple TVs, workshop tools and other resources that facilitate a constructionist teaching philosophy. Constructionism is an increasingly popular educational theory where students learn through a project they are building.

Book now to have your new DREAM KITCHEN by Christmas and save $1000’s All kitchen orders placed before December 24th will receive Countdown vouchers to the value of $200*

In Brief

THE FUTURE: Robotic and coding teacher Liz Fairhall shows Caya Wieberneit how to put together a robot. PHOTO: ANDREW KING ​

“Pupils are so lucky today with the technologies available to them and we want them to be given the opportunity to make the most of it,” she said. The goal of the programme is to teach the students a gradual progression of skills during their time at school until they have enough knowledge to build from scratch their own gadget in year 8.

Your Local Views Dudley Creek upgrade This week’s column by Innes city councillor Pauline Cotter looks at the how the upgrade of the once flood prone Dudley Creek has led to ecological benefits Dudley Creek is usually a fairly gentle flowing creek that meanders through much of Shirley. However, as part of the mayoral task force recommendations Dudley has received a major upgrade to enable a much larger capacity for water flow during heavy rain events. Improvements include the removal of very dense plantings along the banks, widening the banks, and replacing bridges and culverts. But the real win here is that the city council has taken this opportunity to add significantly to the ecology of the creek, especially in the area from Hills Rd through Slater, Chancellor Sts and Julius Tce. Take a stroll along there and you will see the creek now has beautiful rock edging, new plantings of native trees such as

ti kouka, black beech, ribbonwood, horoeka, kowhai to name a few. The planting of native trees closer to the creek is beneficial because they do not create as much shade as exotics, do not shed their leaves all at the same time and can cope with wet conditions, because the creek is designed to flood into its surrounding area. It’s wonderful to see that silt has been removed, and rock caves and eel pipes have been installed to increase the eel and fish diversity. The St Albans creek is also seeing similar type of treatment between Stapeltons Rd and Hills Rd. We now have a new and still evolving jewel in the crown of Innes, another example of seizing opportunity from challenging events, and I encourage you to visit this area of the creek to appreciate its beauty.

Student scholarships ST BEDE’S students Ben Mattingly and Justin Lee have been offered University of Otago scholarships worth $45,000. It’s the first time a St Bede’s student has been offered the scholarship. The university’s academic excellence entrance scholarship recognises academic ability and leadership capabilities. School dux James McCrea also has offers from Otago, Canterbury and Victoria universities. Sixteen students have been offered 28 scholarships in the past two months and further applications are pending. It’s the largest number of offers made to the school’s students. Oliver Davidson has been offered the University of Otago performance entrance scholarship valued at $16,000 over three years. Oliver had roles in several professional productions around the city this year, including Evita, Hairspray and Mamma Mia. University of Otago received more than 3000 applications for ACHIEVERS: Ben Mattingly and Justin Lee have been offered its scholarships. scholarships by Otago University. •Prize-giving pages 6-8

News Rubberware factory opened „„ By Sam Pickering A NEW rubberware company opened in Wigram last week in a bid to boost the dairy industry. Skellerup celebrated the opening of its new $60 million company with Prime Minister John Key dropping by to see the new 19,000m2 facility. The company had struggled after their old site in Woolston sustained damage in the earthquake. Skellerup chief executive David Mair said he was confident the factory will be a platform for future growth. “People said we should move to China, that didn’t actually stack up. So the great thing about this is there is a really good future here in Christchurch. “We are 4.7 million people at the bottom of the world. Most people don’t know us. Yet we are winning business in the US because our products are better and we can deliver better,” he said. The facility was acquired by Skellerup in May 2013 from Wigram Business Park developers and Ngai Tahu property. Skellerup staff said they were stoked to be staying in the city during a tough period after the earthquakes.

FAMILY-OWNED Switched On is the first business to move to the new Belfast Business Park and was opened by Deputy Prime Minister Bill English last Tuesday. The move brings the buiding company together for the first time, after being accommodated in old, villa-style offices in Shirley and Wainoni since the earthquakes. General manager Chris Hughes said the new building was a milestone in Switched On’s 35-year history in Canterbury. “This is our first ever purposebuilt building. It’s an investment in our staff and the region. We started out here and we’re confident that Christchurch’s future is bright,” Mr Hughes said. Designed by Walker Archi-

tecture, with interior design by Redesign Group, the building has been crafted to reflect the trades that make up the business. Features such as text-artwork made of screws; natural timber walls; exposed ceilings; and metal-mesh lights further enhance the building’s unique, industrial look and feel. Switched On’s builders, electricians and painters have fitted out the entire building themselves, starting with a pre-cast concrete shell in February. “Our team have put a lot of hard work into this build. We’ve used it as an opportunity to not only give our staff a more modern working environment, but to also show off what they can do. Their attention to the finer details has been really impressive,” he said.

STARS: Paparoa Street School pupils in the senior jump jam team competed at the South Island championships recently. They received merit awards for presentation, technical execution and creativity. They were also the only team to get a distinction award for their costumes.

Royal award for Rangi Ruru student

RANGI RURU Girls’ School student Nicole Jackson took out gold in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Hillary Awards. The award was presented by Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy. It was given for service to the community, development of a skill, commitment to a physical activity and the ability to plan and carry out an adventurous journey such as tramping.

Nicole said achieving the award was about more than receiving a badge, it was about self-improvement and gaining valuable experience. “I have learnt many things through my involvement with Duke of Edinburgh, but what I will take away is the motivation and confidence I developed to try new things,” she said. “While I wanted to achieve the gold award be-

Promoting student voice $165,000 plan to manage old trees tree assessments at Bells Creek „„ By Bridget Rutherford in Woolston, as part of the flood aim of Rangi magazine ABOUT $165,000 will be spent mitigation scheme. RANGI RURU Girls’ School launched its first magazine written, edited and designed solely by its students last week and already more than 240 copies have been sold. It is titled Shelter and promotes student voices, reflecting the diverse thinking and content created by girls from all levels of the school. The first issue is called the Respect Edition, and explores treatment of others, expression of thought, interactions and how respect can be more widely applied. The concept of student-generated magazines isn’t a new one, however, in recent years these publications have declined dramatically. It is believed that Rangi Ruru will now be the only school in the country to produce a magazine solely directed by its students. Head of media students Jude Morgan said this is not only due to the cost but also to the introduction of digital and social media. Editor Mollie Carruthers said she jumped at the chance to work on the project because it gives a voice to students who might not

otherwise have the confidence to express themselves publicly. “Being a quiet person myself I’m proud to be a part of something that is ‘right up my alley’, in the sense it isn’t about being a certain personality or a public speaker,” she said. “A strong voice is not always one that is loud.” Miss Carruthers said she is really proud of the first edition and is excited to share the magazine with the school’s current community and alumnae. Shelter will be available for sale at www.rangiruru.school.nz/ store

developing a plan looking at ways to mitigate the effects of the city’s ageing tree population. The city council decided to write an Urban Tree and Forest Plan to plan how to manage trees in the future. It will look at ways to deal with the ageing population, climate change, urban heating, transport-related greenhouse gases and airborne pollutants, and ways to support Christchurch’s garden city image. City council head of parks Andrew Rutledge said the plan, which will be completed in 2018, will provide “strategic direction” to deal with those factors. He said older trees could be managed by removing branches, or placing a mulch layer over the roots, however, it became costly the further the tree declined. “If trees decline to the point that personal health and safety may be at risk we act accordingly.” Meanwhile, the city council has spent more than $257,000 over the past year on reports and assessments of trees. Figures released under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act showed from August 2015 to

REPORT: This smaller tree at Edmonds Park had to be assessed for the Bells Creek flood mitigation scheme.

August 2016, $257,872 was spent on these reports. That figure related to assessments done for any reason, not just in relation to tree removals. In July, the city council set aside $30,000 for carrying out

City council land drainage manager Keith Davison said, to date, $11,553 had been spent on arborist services for the $9 million project. He said that included the in-house assessment of 317 trees across five sites. Thirteen of those trees were removed and replaced. The work was done to see what condition the trees affected by the work were in, and whether the scheme could be designed around them, Mr Davison said. Three reports and a memorandum were produced from the work. In all cases, the city council’s operational arborist team conducts its own assessment on the trees first. Additionally, it may commission an independent arborist for a report to get a peer review, during high demand periods, in relation to significant trees, or for trees in heritage parks. A tree survey of the Avon River’s stopbanks in June was costed at $8798, while tree condition surveys along Dudley Creek was costed at $5416. July was the most expensive year for tree reports, costing $60,708, while in August, $27,334 was spent.

Our People

Architect helps rebuild communities Entrepreneur Camia Young, 42, settled in Christchurch in the aftermath of the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Fraser Walker-Pearce talks to the American architect about her passion for rebuilding the city Tell me what you were doing when you first arrived in New Zealand? I arrived five years ago and was teaching architecture at the University of Auckland. During that time, we brought more than 1000 students to Christchurch to help with the rebuild and I did that until about a year or so ago. I was flying from Christchurch to Auckland on a Monday and coming back on the Wednesday. I would do that every week and I got super tired. I loved teaching, it was such a good time. During your time at the university, were you still involved with Christchurch? In the middle of that teaching we did Gap Filler’s pallet pavilion, which took place over the course of a summer and winter. It was up for two years, so that was a treasure of a project. And during setting that up, I caught a bug – it was a good bug, but a bug nonetheless. The bug taught me about building communities through building buildings. It wasn’t about the pavilion it was about the community around the pavilion that made it work. It was about a healing place for the community to gather around after the earthquakes. And what after that? Then I started a project called Exchange Christchurch, XCHC. X stands for exchange and CHC is Christchurch’s airport code. And we will be doing Exchange Auckland, which will be XAKL and Exchange Wellington which will be XWLG. So there are other initiatives coming as well. It provides a place for people that have lost a lot in the earthquakes, a place to create and produce their creative work and develop their creative practice. Great, so what can people see at XCHC at the moment?

At the moment we have a jeweller, a painter, a composer, a few photographers, an architectural designer and art exhibitions that change weekly. So would you say you’ve been quite involved with the rebuild of the city? I’ve been more involved in the social side of the rebuild more than anything. What I’ve been doing is learning by doing while I’m here. This will absolutely be a 21st century city where it’s not so much about the next big icon, but where the people will come first and the buildings will be a by-product of that. I have confidence in the people. Right, and where in the city are you based? I’m mostly at the exchange in the central city, but I own a place out in Lyttelton. I love Lyttelton, but I also love Sumner, New Brighton, places with a cool community feel. I much prefer the speed of small than the big city stuff, you can get so much more done in small communities. I actually live up in Mt Pleasant and I quite like that. And you have a slight accent there – is it American? Yes. I was born in Colorado and those mountains still call to me. I’m from Aspen. It’s the Rocky Mountains that get me. New Zealand has a really strong connection with nature as well. I left when I was younger and lived in Europe for 11 years, studied in London, then worked in Rotterdam (Netherlands), Paris (France), Madrid (Spain) and Basel (Switzerland). It was great, I was practicing there as an architect. There must have been some incredible projects in the likes of Paris? There was one project in Paris – it’s the only time I’ve ever cried

ENTREPRENEUR: Camia Young moved to Christchurch to use her skills as an architect to help rebuild the city after the earthquakes.

when we lost a project. It still hurts to this day. I fell in love with it. It’s where I learned to dream with the intent to realise the dream. It’s easy to come up with an idea, it’s expensive to execute them. I’d imagine it would be. Have you been anywhere other than America, Europe and New Zealand? I’m also a Brazilian resident. My father lives there. I spend a bit of time there and I speak Portuguese as well. He lives in northern Brazil. He built a selfsustaining home in the middle of the sand dunes. He’s lived without electricity for the last 25 years and now has solar power. He’s a hippy in the middle of a desert. So he’s my inspiration for a lot of things. That’s pretty incredible. Do you have a project that, once completed, you’ll be happy to retire and put your feet up? No. I don’t really have an end-game. I love seeing positive change. And I think we’re all

inherently creative, to see that work done is the road and the end for me. Where did you spend your school years? Up through secondary I was in Aspen, elementary and high school. Then I did my undergraduate at University of Colorado and graduated as valedictorian and went on to get a masters in Los Angeles at SCIARC, the Southern California Institute of Architecture. In three years, I got two masters degrees, rather than two and a half for one masters, which it could’ve been. Then I practiced architecture in Europe for 11 years across the board there. Do you have any family over here in Christchurch? No, no family here, I fly solo. I have lots of love, I miss them, miss the mountains, too. But some family has come out while I’m here, though. Mum and dad have been out. My sister uses the old ‘if you don’t eat your

vegetables, you won’t be able to go visit Aunty Camia’ on her two kids. They’re super-excited to visit as well. Was it always an intention of yours to come to Christchurch? Not at all. I was looking for change from working in a corporate office. As much as I loved my life in Europe, I wanted to find somewhere I could do my own thing. A friend of mine who is a Kiwi offered to bring me in to teach at the University of Auckland, which was about three months before the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Then that entire year course became focused on the earthquake and on Christchurch. I had never taught and I had never been to Christchurch, but I was looking for a new home and so I came a month before the course was due to start and I walked Christchurch for that month and then went up to teach the course. I knew in that month that I would stay here. I was looking at a couple of other countries around the world – Brazil, Canada – but I couldn’t do it. What are some of your first memories stepping into Christchurch post-earthquake? It was late 2011, so it was post-apocalyptic. I thought immediately I was in way over my head and I thought I was naive in the fact that I thought I could make a difference. But after phoning my dad about it, I decided I would stay. I started really walking the city and learning as much as I possibly could about it. I ended up getting my visa through the job in Auckland and now I’m here. But that month, it was really scary for me because I had never seen a crisis on that scale before and I didn’t know what to do. Must have been pretty terrifying. Had you experienced an earthquake before that? I think I remember maybe one earthquake when I was in Aspen, but when I was in LA there was a few. But nothing compared to when I came here, and they happened so often back then.

EQC UPDATE

KEEPING YOU INFORMED | NOVEMBER 2016

EQC pays $495 million in the past year to settle Canterbury claims

Canterbury students head to Chile for earthquake conference Five engineering students from University of Canterbury will be attending the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (16WCEE) in Chile this January thanks to sponsorship from EQC and the NZ Society for Earthquake Engineers (NZSEE). EQC’s Research Strategy and Investment Manager Richard Smith says the sponsorship goes partway to supporting students and practitioners to attend the conference, which is the preeminent gathering of engineers involved in seismic resistant design. “WCEE is to earthquake engineers what the Olympics are to sport. This opportunity gives these students exposure to ideas and knowledge from around the globe as well as the chance to forge international connections that will be of value to their research and to New Zealand. “EQC plays an important role in funding and facilitating research about natural hazard risk. Part of that is making sure we have researchers within New Zealand who have the capability to undertake that research.” Mechanical engineering PhD student Jarrod Cook says the chance to attend 16WCEE will be invaluable. “I’m exploring ways a ratcheting, tension-only device can reduce the motion experienced by buildings during an earthquake, and therefore limit the damage and impact to people as well as enabling buildings to stay open after the event. WCEE is the premier conference in earthquake engineering so this is a great way to share my ideas, get critical feedback and see what others are doing.”

EQC Chief Executive Ian Simpson

The Earthquake Commission paid out nearly half a billion dollars to settle claims in Canterbury in the year to 30 June 2016, its recently released annual report shows. The annual report includes lots of detail about the work EQC has been carrying out in Canterbury in the past year. Figures in the report show that in the 2015/16 financial year, EQC paid out $495 million in claims for the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence. This total was made up of $441 million for residential building claims (both for cash settlements and managed repairs), $46 million for residential land claims and $8 million for contents claims. IN THE FINANCIAL YEAR TO 30 JUNE 2016 EQC PAID OUT

$495 MILLION MADE UP OF $441 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL BUILDING CLAIMS, $46 MILLION FOR RESIDENTIAL LAND CLAIMS AND $8 MILLION FOR CONTENTS CLAIMS.

EQC has now spent $9.4 billion (including claim handling expenses, excluding GST) in its response to the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. This sum has been financed from the Natural Disaster Fund and by the reinsurance cover EQC had negotiated prior to the earthquakes. EQC recovered about $444 million of the cost of Canterbury claims, largely from international reinsurers, in 2015/16. EQC also paid out $25 million for claims other than those from the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. This includes $4.7 million for claims from the February 2016 earthquakes.

AT 30 JUNE 2016, EQC HAD

COMPLETED REPAIRS ON MORE THAN 67,000 HOMES, SETTLED 187,000 CONTENTS CLAIMS, COMPLETED CLAIMS FOR LAND DAMAGE TO 66,000 PROPERTIES.

In Canterbury, as at 30 June 2016, EQC had completed repairs on more than 67,000 homes, settled 187,000 contents claims and completed claims for land damage to 66,000 properties. “By the end of the year we aim to have cash settled the more than 14,000 claims from the February 2016 earthquakes,” says Chief Executive Ian Simpson. Mr Simpson reaffirmed EQC’s ongoing commitment to Canterbury in 2017. “In the upcoming year, EQC will continue to be present in Canterbury resolving remedial requests on properties where we have managed a repair. There is also a range of administrative and financial tasks to be completed.”

AS AT 30 JUNE 2016, EQC HAD PAID OUT

$9.4 BILLION IN RESPONSE TO THE 2010-2011 CANTERBURY EARTHQUAKES. THIS MONEY CAME FROM THE NATURAL DISASTER FUND AND REINSURANCE.

Mr Simpson says that EQC has adequate funds to continue to operate and to meet its financial obligations and settle claims. “There is always a high level of uncertainty when it comes to settling claims. For instance with home repairs, the true extent of damage may only become clear once repairs begin and tradies start ripping off weatherboards or lifting floorboards.

WCEE is held every four years and provides attendees with the opportunity for a global exchange of knowledge, ideas, research results and practical experience. As well as students from Canterbury, EQC and NZSEE are jointly sponsoring the attendance of five students from Auckland University and four industry representatives from across New Zealand. From left to right: Jarrod Cook, Pavan Aninthaneni and Amir Malek are three of five University of Canterbury students heading to Chile for the World Conference on Earthquake Engineering this January.

IN ADDITION, AS AT 30 JUNE 2016 EQC HAD PAID OUT

$4.7 MILLION FOR CLAIMS ARISING FROM THE FEBRUARY 2016 EARTHQUAKES IN CANTERBURY.

“Because of this uncertainty, we have built a margin into our estimates of what the Canterbury claims will cost. “In the event that we did need to use all of this margin, the Crown has confirmed in writing that it will meet its obligations under the Earthquake Commission Act to ensure that EQC can meet all its liabilities as they fall due,” Mr Simpson says. The EQC Annual Report shows that EQC received about $280 million in premiums and spent $210 million on expenses, excluding claims payments and claims handling expenses for the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence. “Our largest expense was the $150 million in premiums for reinsurance, which currently provides New Zealand with access to $4.69 billion in cover for natural disasters, once the cost of these events exceeds the deductible,” Mr Simpson says. A copy of the EQC Annual Report 2015/16 can be downloaded from the EQC website.

Fashion Race week tips for the boys „„ By Annabelle Dick THE BOLDER the better – that seems to be the mantra for men’s NZ Cup and Show Week fashion. By no means am I an expert in men’s fashion, so I called into a few menswear stores to see what’s been flying off the shelves in preparation for Christchurch’s biggest event on the fashion calendar. At 3 Wise Men in the Re:Start container mall, it’s all about the shirt. Block colour and patterned dress shirts have been a popular favourite for race day. “There’s a lot of checks this year. Like check shirts and bold colours, not so much plain,” said store manager Jess Edwards. “I’d go for a bright, colourful shirt like bright green or pink with a navy suit.” In the suit department, long gone are the days of the classic cut black suit – navies, greys and patterns have been selling out this season. “Maybe a bit of texture or really subtle checks, but mostly navy and grey,” Miss Edwards said. Bonus: There are almost no

coloured shirts that don’t match navy or grey. At Meccano Riccarton, they’ve been noticing the suit and shirt trend, too. “Men are going for quite bold patterns and they want

something a bit more edgy. We have a few floral shirts at the moment and people have been gravitating towards those quite intense patterns,” sales assistant Claudia Copeland said. “We haven’t sold many black

suits either – charcoal grey and navy have been popular.” She said men are changing it up this year by opting for a waist coat instead of a jacket, or swapping suit pants for a more casual chino. “There’s been a lot of mix and matching going on this season,” Miss Copeland said. When it comes to ties, you’ll get away with ditching it if you’ve chosen a busy shirt. “Where people can get away with not wearing a tie, they won’t. That’s why they’ve been going for the boldly patterned shirts, because it’s easier to get away with not wearing one,” Miss Copeland said. Now you’ve got the suit pinned down, you need footwear to match. Alert: Black won’t work with a navy or grey suit. Save them for funeral and weddings and pair your outfit with shoes in brown hues. “Brown shoes have been very popular with the brogue detail. We have suede boots in at the moment that have been really popular. People have been opting for that instead of the classic black,” Miss Edwards said.

Boys’ High in national cup

SPORTS

„„ By Gordon Findlater CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High School’s first XI booked its spot in the country’s biggest secondary school tournament after defeating St Andrew’s College at Hagley Oval. The Secondary School Boys’ First XI Cup – formerly known as the Gillette Cup – is a weeklong tournament held annually at Lincoln University. The country’s top six secondary school cricket teams contest the tournament after winning their regional qualifying competition. Christchurch BHS and St Andrew’s played in the Canterbury qualifying final last week. St Andrew’s were first to bat and found itself struggling at 54/3 after 25 overs. Christchurch BHS bowler Josh Mariu was instrumental in restricting the run rate, going for just six runs from six overs. St Andrew’s picked up the run

CHAMPIONS: Breens Intermediate won gold in a water polo competition in Dunedin recently. After five wins in pool play, the A grade team went on to beat Tahuna in the semi-final and then Cobham Intermediate in the final. Sports co-ordinator Jono Collins said they are extremely proud of this success. “It has been four years of hard work and dedication by our players and parent support crew. We continue to go from strength to strength in sport at Breens,” he said.

FC Twenty 11 reach semis in youth tournament THE FC Twenty 11 under-19 boys’ football team came agonisingly close to an appearance in the final of a youth championship in Napier. The team lost 1-2 to eventual winner Onehunga Sports in the semi-final of the National Under-19 Youth Championships Satellite over Labour weekend. The team was five minutes away from forcing extra time before their hopes were dashed by a late goal. FC Twenty 11 also had a boys and girls’ team in the final at the South Island Under-19 Tournament at Cuthberts Green. With the boys in Napier coming within reach of achieving the same mark, it could have been a day to remember for the club. The under-19 boys’ team was unbeaten in pool play, scoring 21 goals in five games, while conceding only three. They scored three more goals

in their quarter and semi-final matches and conceded two. Overall, in seven matches, they scored 24 goals with five against. “The boys were excellent throughout the weekend and whilst bitterly disappointed we didn’t reach the final, they can be very proud of their efforts,” said FC Twenty 11 under-19 boys’ coach Boyd Kedzlie. FC Twenty 11’s Jacob Richards was voted tournament MVP.

MEDALIST: At the young age of 14, Liam Pasfield, of Northwood, competed in his first upper South Island regional swimming championships, representing North Canterbury. The championships were held in Greymouth recently. Pasfield came home with two golds and a silver medal. He trains once a week with his coaches Brent Kemp, Katrina Robertshaw and Tash Beckingsale at Dudley Aquatic Centre.

Jack Turner and Louie Chapman then steadied the ship with scores of 52 and 66 not out respectively. Chapman hit the winning run in the 48th over as his team wrapped up a seven wicket win. “The boys are absolutely fizzing; this is what we’ve been building up for all year. I was just happy to get a few runs out there,” said Chapman. Christchurch BHS will now join the five other regional qualifiers at the national tournament, which runs from December 5-9. They last won the tournament in 2014.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

“Beautiful healthy teeth for life” At St Albans Dental Centre one of the key measures of their success is the number of patients they treat through to older age with natural teeth and gums with the supporting tissue intact. They strive (in line with their motto) to keep these tissues healthy and as beautiful as possible, and where damage has occurred, from decay, wear, erosion or accident, they carefully repair it with tooth-like materials in an attempt to recreate the original form and function of these teeth. St Albans Dental Centre is a general dental practice looking after all dental requirements while specialising in ‘Cerec’ ceramic repair, sedation dentistry (for those who don’t want to know about it) and wisdom teeth extractions. The practice believes in and practises ‘preventative’ dentistry, which aims to help patients prevent disease rather than fixing the damage once it has occurred. They also believe in and practise ‘minimal intervention dentistry’, meaning they minimise the damage to natural tooth tissue when repair is undertaken. They are a team of dedicated dentists and hygienists, who provide professional, high-quality dental care to their patients and the community. They are very sad to have lost Dr

Freddie Linterman from the team as he decided to retire at the end of October. . Dr Linterman joined the St Albans Dental Centre after the 2010 earthquake rendered his central city practice unusable. He has had a long and distinguished career in dentistry caring for his many dedicated patients and he will be sorely missed by one and all. Everyone on the team wishes Freddie all the best for his retirement. Dr Kristine Bettle has rejoined the team after a break for maternity leave and is currently working two days a week. Kristine is looking forward to treating both new and existing patients. St Albans Dental Centre welcomes a new hygienist, Petria Waitzer, who is working alongside Victoria Ryan. Petria has relocated from Auckland with her husband, where she worked in both specialist and general dentistry. She is passionate about providing oral health care tailored to individual needs. She is a very experienced hygienist with a strong focus on preventative and periodontal dentistry. For any concern, questions or to make an appointment at St Albans Dental Centre, please call (03) 355 9380 and one of the friendly receptionists will be happy to assist with any dental enquiry.
