Trucks get green light to continue U-turns on Ensors Rd „„ By Caitlin MIles LARGE TRUCKS and trailers will be able to continue holding up four lanes of traffic while they perform U-turns on busy Ensors Rd – in spite of concerns from residents. The Charleston Neighbourhood Association wanted the

city council to ban U-turns being made at the Ensors Rd and Sullivan Ave intersection due to several heavy vehicle truck and trailers from the nearby Fulton Hogan Quarry Depot making the turns they didn’t think “was right.� Neighbourhood association chairman John Hoskin said they

decided to ask the city council for something to be done after residents raised concerns. “Some residents noticed the trucks and trailers were doing U-turns on the road, we didn’t think it was right for them to be taking up four lanes of traffic,� Mr Hoskin said. But the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board decided not to ban U-turns after receiving a report from city council staff on the issue. Community board member Alexandra Davids said it would possibly direct trucks to use the suburban streets. “That was something we wanted to avoid,� Ms Davids said.

Instead, the community board decided to restrict parking outside 133 Ensors Rd to help improve safety for heavy vehicles from the Fulton Hogan Quarry Depot entering and existing the site. Yellow lines will be put in at a cost of $100, taking away five kerbside car parks. •Turn to page 4

NOTE DOWN March 4 in your diary – it’s a nine and a half hour rock concert out at Lincoln. And today (on page 5) we have 10 double passes to giveaway to what will be an amazing concert, I suspect. Mi-Sex, Dragon, the Jordan Luck Band, Sharon O’Neill, Annie Crummer, Margaret Urlich, Debbie Harwood, Jason Kerrison and a few local bands will make it one heck of a concert. It’s bound to be warm, dry and Lincoln, not too far from the city, is a great venue. The promoters are also putting on buses that leave different parts of the district, in the ticket price, if you don’t want to take the car. And speaking of other great events, it’s that time of the year to start thinking about the City2Surf, that iconic event put on by Star Media. To find out how to enter go to page 8 – Barry Clarke

News Another year; no progress „„ By Caitlin Miles ANOTHER YEAR has rolled by and the rubble that was once the Sydenham Heritage Church still hasn’t moved – and won’t before Christmas. The remains of the church on the corner of Colombo and Brougham Sts has been there for nearly six years since the building was pulled down two days after the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Previously, the Sydenham Heritage Trust has said the rubble would be shifted before the end of the year. But when asked by Southern View, trust chairwoman Dorothy Haywood would not say if the rubble would be gone by the end of the year. She said to call her after Christmas to ask the question then. Meanwhile, artefacts buried in the rubble have not been recovered. Last year, the former Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board obtained a container for the trust to store the recovered artefacts in. Mrs Haywood said there were several important items they

wanted to recover. “We do know there are some plaques in the front vestibule of the church commemorating various people and there was another big marble plaque commemorating people. We are hoping for those,” Mrs Haywood said. The artefacts also included photos and trophies from the old Sydenham School and other marble plaques. Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said she believed REMAINS: The pile of rubble that was Sydenham Heritage the container was on site. Church (below), with the church artefacts still inside, may not be Once the rubble has been removed before Christmas. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN shifted, the trust planned to put a garden on the site, with long term plans for a building that the community can use, along with a display of the recovered artefacts and the history of Sydenham. The trust also wants to recover all of the Halswell stone to incorporate into the planned new building. HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the pile of rubble?

In Brief LIBRARY DISCUSSION On Thursday the city council will discuss giving the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board authority to make decisions on the rebuild and future management of the Woolston Library and Community Centre. The original Woolston Community Library building was demolished after being badly damaged in the February 2011 earthquake. The city council is currently going through early engagement with the community about Woolston Library. The budget for the project is $1.6 million. ST JOHNS ST CLOSURE A section of St Johns St, from St Lukes St to Streamside Court, has been closed for resealing. Work on the project began recently and a detour down Glenroy St, Hargood St and Clydesdale St will be in place while contractors complete the work. RESIDENTS ONLY PARK The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has opted to make the area outside 33 Hastings St in Sydenham residents only parking.

Stopping the firebugs Fire Risk Management Officer Mark Thomas writes about people lighting fires with no regard for the consequences Without going into details just in case it encourages those that think it’s cool or funny to light fires, there was a skip set alight this week at one of the city’s newer attractions. The potential was quite serious in a town where re-building our heritage has been a six-year journey that, so far, has no end in sight. The real message I want to convey is that there are people in our midst who will do this sort of thing without regard for the consequences and, in some cases, will be well aware of the consequences and hoping they occur. Mostly they will take the easy

way. So things like skips and even rubbish bins that are placed close to a building with easy access in the middle of the night are an open invitation. It’s not so difficult to overcome this by locking compounds or even merely by placing the skip as far from your building as possible. The heartache, the clean-up and the rebuilding are all things we’ve been through. We don’t need it again. Note to travellers: Most New Zealand backpackers are protected by smoke alarms that ring right through the building to get everybody out. So lighting incense in your room is not recommended. Particularly just on midnight when most are asleep. As happened in New Brighton last Sunday.

HARD TURN: Fulton Hogan trucks have causing concerns for residents doing U-turns on Ensors Rd. ​

Trucks get green light to continue U-turns •From page 1 Ms Davids said the community board is trying to get more traffic monitoring along the road as well. The community board approved removing five car parks outside of the quarry to improve the safety of heavy vehicles entering and existing the site. The report said putting in restrictions would stop unnecessary traffic delays along Ensors Rd due to trucks having to manoeuvre around the parked cars

to be able to enter the site. The report also said it would improve visibility for the trucks as well. Ms Davids said it was a shame to lose the car parks but safety for the truck drivers, pedestrians and other road users was more important. Mr Hoskin said this would ease some of their concerns and losing some of the car parks was a small price to pay. The city council classifies Ensors Rd as a major arterial route, with ARA Institute of

Canterbury directly across the road from the site with an average of 21,500 vehicles using the road per day. Fulton Hogan reported an average of 200 vehicles enter the site per day, the majority being heavy vehicles. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think heavy vehicle truck and trailers should be allowed to make U-turns on Ensors Rd?

Buck to stand down as chairwoman „„ By Fraser Walker-Pearce SALLY BUCK will stand down as chairwoman of the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Community Board midway through her three-year term. She was voted chairwoman at the board’s first official meeting last month. But she told Star Media the board agreed she would step down after 18 months in order to allow a younger member of the board to take up the role. She was nominated for the role due to her experience as being a city councillor and on the Canterbury District Health Board. The board are in support of this move, members Darrell Latham, Brenda Lowe-Johnson, Tim Lindley and Jake McLellan, as well as city councillors Sara Templeton, Yani Johanson and Deon Swiggs backed Ms Buck’s call to stand down halfway through. But a lone voice against the proposal Alexandra Davids has voiced her disapproval at the decision. “I think the chair is a very important role and should be

continual throughout the three years,” she said. Ms Davids was nominated for both chair and deputy but missed out. Ms Davids said she was “a little disappointed” she wasn’t elected for either position. “Politics seems to get in the way sometimes,” she said. She also ran for city councillor against incumbent Cr Johanson but missed out by about 1400 votes in the local body elections. Ms Buck said sharing the load is a good way to spread the amount of work to be done by the board. She said continuity would not be an issue and residents could contact whoever they liked on the board. “It is the same people on the community board whoever chairs it. Residents contact all the board members, not just the chair,” she said. In the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board chairwoman Karolin Potter said she won’t step down as chairwoman half way through the term. Deputy chairwoman Melanie Coker said it was unusual and not something they had discussed as a board.

„„ By Caitlin MIles IT MAY have been the first time Caitlin Quinn competed in an international Salsa dancing competition but that didn’t stop her from taking home a second and two thirds. The 14-year-old of Woolston competed in the World Salsa Solo competition in Brisbane at the weekend. Caitlin came second in Salsa Shines Youth category and received two thirds in the Youth Freestyle and Mixed Latin Duets categories. Caitlin said she since she had never competed at this competition before she wasn’t focused on winning. “For me it’s more about the experience of being there with all of these dancers from around the world,” Caitlin said. Earlier this year she competed in the youth section of the New Zealand Salsa Solo competition. She placed first in youth couples, third in salsa soloist and fourth in salsa teams. These results made her able to qualify for the World Salsa Solo competition. She has been dancing with Latin Fire Dance Company for four years, spending five hours a week training. Caitlin started with hip-hop and then jazz dancing, she decided to try out salsa when her friend Natasha suggested it. “I thought I’d try a youth salsa class with my friend and it just went from there,” Caitlin said. Caitlin has been training in hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, salsa, bachata, cha-cha and zouk ever since. “It’s a lot of fun and the tutors are really great too,” she said.

DANCING: Caitlin decided to try a salsa class for fun four years ago, since then her passion for Latin dancing has grown.

Dancing isn’t the only extra-curricular activity she does, while being a Marian College student she also manges to fit in speech, drama, basketball, netball, water polo and swimming as well. She said it’s hard work juggling everything and fitting in time to be with her friends and by the end of the week her muscles are “pretty sore” but she wouldn’t change it. Caitlin plans to keep dancing and competing, aiming to constantly improve and grow her skill set.

on the running shoes and get to the finish line are the Diaz family. The family began its journey to a healthy lifestyle through a Facebook page Hungry4Hauora. It highlights the family’s journey of ups and downs on the way to a healthy lifestyle. Normally very camera shy, Rudolph and wife Telena want to inspire others, especially the Maori and Pacific community. After just two months of regular exercise and nutritious eating, Mr Diaz says he has already noticed a difference in his energy levels and skin 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. health.

Working as a health and well-being adviser at He Waka Tapu, Mr Diaz is urging others who are looking to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle, to use The Star City2Surf with Mike Pero as a vehicle for change. He Waka Tapu had 600 participants in the 2016 event and is aiming to reach 1000 participants in 2017. The family has already set about getting active, regularly attending training circuits with the Hale Compound Conditioning organisation. “A big part of the fitness group we are in is to set goals throughout the year. City2Surf is the main goal for a lot of people in our group,” Mr Diaz said. Getting fit for the 6km or 14km event will be just the start for the family who are looking to get to their goal weights by next October. Mr Diaz is hoping to get from 140kg, which he weighed two months ago, down to 95kg.

ACTIVE: Rudolph and Telena Diaz are on a journey to a healthy lifestyle, hoping to promote nutrition and exercise to their two-year-old daughter, Te Hiere Oromai, and others.

Our People

Creating pandemonium in the world Brett Painter set up Pandemonium Percussion nearly 20 years ago, a group that uses different items to create music. He spoke to Caitlin Miles about his time in Scotland, being in a Beatles-like experience and an underwater concert Brett, can you tell me about Pandemonium Percussion? Well, I set it up as a group and trust in 1998. At the time, I was working with a group of students who I was keen to turn into a group. So that’s how it all started; some of the original members are still involved today. We started as a steel pan group with West Indian steel drums. You set up a trust too? Can you tell me a bit about that? So at the same time, I set up a charitable trust which raises money and buys instruments, which we lend out to students just starting out until they can afford to buy their own. When did you start out in music? Although I don’t remember it, my first performance was between age one and two on my highchair. Something to do with dinner time and utensils, and my parents didn’t think it was just me having a bit of a paddy, but that I was actually trying to express something else.

It’s always been drumming for you then? It’s always been drumming. When did you start taking drumming seriously? I started taking recorder lessons at the Christchurch School of Music when I was five, and was given a toy drum kit soon after that. But I took up lessons properly aged seven. What did your parents think when you first started taking drumming lessons? Did they dread it a little? They were very supportive. We lived out in the country, in Greenpark, and some of our neighbours were also musicians. We had a spare house on our property which turned into my studio and the band room and, rather than phone up and complain, our neighbours would actually open their windows and, at times, sit out on their lawn with their deck chairs and listen. It was nothing but support from my parents. They would drive me at least half an hour

EXPERIENCE: Since Brett Painter was a child he has been involved in music, playing for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, New Zealand Youth Orchestra, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the Canterbury Percussion Ensemble.

north and another half an hour south of our house for lessons. So they were wonderful. When I was nine, we went and lived in

Scotland for a year so my parents said: ‘Who’s the best drum teacher around.’ They found someone from the military band

who taught me and from the Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band. So when I came back, I could do a lot of clever things in pipe band drumming style and I joined the Ellesmere Pipe Band. I was so small that I couldn’t march with the band. The drums at the time were too heavy. How did you end up in Scotland? My father had a scholarship, he worked at Lincoln University and he had a scholarship to go and study and do some research for the year. We followed him around as he did his research which meant I got some great exposure to some great trainers and musicians. Have you got to travel with all the work you do with Pandemonium and the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra? Yes I have. What have been some of your favourite places to go to? New Zealand is awesome and we have done many of our favourite gigs here, particularly with younger people, we have run school concert series in the old town hall and many other places over the years and we’ve brought in international artists to come and perform with us.

of percussion Going overseas is awesome because we always take our culture and our ideas to different countries and they find that quite interesting and particularly in Japan and Hong Kong. What was it like to perform in Hong Kong? It’s a totally different approach. They follow you around with television cameras. Myself and a colleague performed there and we think they thought we were someone else. As we walked onto stage they started screaming and we got through our performance and they were still screaming. It was a Beatles-type experience. We never knew quite what they were screaming about, we think they thought that maybe we were someone else. For the performance we constructed a large scaffolding and had instruments hanging off of it and we were running around hitting them. We thought, what would happen if we stopped in the middle of this? Would they keep screaming or would they start throwing things? We didn’t want to risk it. That’s pretty amazing, when you’re not doing that you work as an environmental scientist. Yes, I have a degree with honours, in management science and a PhD in natural resources engineering.

SHOWCASE: Painter and his fellow Pandemonium band members have played with many different objects and techniques to create interesting sounds during performances.

That’s quite different from music. Well for me it’s about balance. I love to play music and create experiences that people enjoy. But I also have some other passions around the environment and sustainability and it’s important for me to be able to contribute to things for the next generation as well as to entertain people in the current generation. You seem very busy as a musician, scientist and music teacher, do you have any hobbies? I live in Beckenham and I like to run in the hills in my spare time and so I’m right at the base of the

derwater sound system and lighting system we had instruments down inside the pool. So our audience could hear the music outside the pool but generally they were swimming around in the pool with us and you didn’t need to have your ears under because you hear the music through your bones. That was really unique and surreal. With those experiences you’ve had, how do you come up with ideas for Pandemonium? We describe ourselves as world music with a Kiwi twist. What that means is that we will borrow, steal and add a touch of ourselves, our culture and our

Port Hills very near a lot of tracks and it’s very close to town. It’s a lovely part of town. I had my first 20 years in Greenpark without too many neighbours so I didn’t want to live somewhere noisy. You’ve worked with some great groups what have been some of your highlight experience? That’s always such a difficult one. There are a few that stand out I guess. One of them would be an underwater concert series back in the early 1990s. It was one of the first in New Zealand. Myself and my fellow musician were in full dive gear at the QE II dive pool. We had an un-

city in the mix to come up with something a little bit different. We just sit down and make crazy ideas and we figure out where want to run with it and we always realise it’s a much bigger task than it needs to be but we don’t give up and we see it through to the end and we come out with something we didn’t expect at the beginning. What’s your favourite part about working with the other members of Pandemonium? We set it up so that we could have a lot of fun together and challenge each other creatively. That’s what it’s about, nearly 20 years down the track.

SCHOOLS Cashmere Primary and Spreydon School pupils are tough kids. The schools participated alongside more than 2700 other primary and intermediate pupils at the Tough Kid obstacle course at South Brighton Park last Wednesday. Sport Canterbury designed the course that wound through a forest and along the estuary, sending pupils on a muddy path and even down a slip ’n’ slide. PHOTOS: GEOFF SLOAN

FINISHED: High fives all round as Melaad Deljo from Spreydon School crosses the finish line.

CLEAN UP: The clean up was easy when participants washed the mud off in a Fire Service’s decontamination shower.

Production travels back in time „„ By Caitlin Miles CHRISTCHURCH South Intermediate have spent weeks travelling back in time as they prepared for their production of Time Lord, which showcased last week. There were 130 pupils involved in the production about three children exploring an old house and finding a game called Time Lord, which leads to them meeting a real Time Lord and journeying into the past. Teacher Kate Revell and a group of year 8 pupils altered the story slightly to suit the school and community. “We wanted to make some inside jokes about Christchurch and make it relatable to the school,” Miss Revell said. The children visited famous characters, Cleopatra, Beethoven and Al Capone. The production involved 13 weeks and time during the school holidays to perfect the dances, songs and scenes. Miss Revell said the whole community has been supportive of the production, from helping with the set to making costumes. The story ran for three nights and Miss Revell said the pupils have “owned it” every performance. As the pupils got ready for

the production the garden club were busy working hard on making their community garden ready to open to the public this weekend. What began as simply a bare patch of ground has become a place full of fresh produce where pupils have been learning to grow plants and their skill level. The vegetables collected from the garden with fresh vegetables for use in the school’s cooking room. Members of the garden club recently received a school award for their dedication to recycling, worm-farming and composting. The effort put into creating fences from pallets and re-purposing chairs and desk frames in the garden design was also recognised. Teacher Margaret Calder has overseen the project. “We are really looking forward to showing people the fruits of our labours and hope that it will encourage others in our wider community to get involved,” Mrs Calder said. The project,will be open for all to see between 5pm and 7pm at the school grounds. There will also be home-made items for sale- many using the crops grown.

HELP: Beethoven, played by Julius Hlavac needed a hand writing a song when Lord Emit, played by Sophie Hartshaw and Toby Hull, Amelia Kirkness and Lili Nicholl offered their help.

HISTORICAL: Pupils travelled to ancient Egypt to meet Cleopatra. They spent 13 weeks rehearsing for the show.

GANGSTERS: Alana Topping played Teresa and Jake Walker played the notorious Al Capone in the show.

EVIL: Sophie Hartshaw had to fend of warlocks – Myles Duggan and Phoebe Finnie.

Achievements recognised at event Our school’s annual Achievers Evening is a wonderful occasion to celebrate the wide range of co-curricular achievements of our students, which include the awarding of our prestigious Arts Gold and Sports Blue Awards. The premier awards of the evening was the announcement of the highest achieving students in both the Arts and Sports.

Artsperson of the Year 2016: Miriam Qualls

Sportsperson of the Year 2016: Billy Meaclem

Throughout her time at Cashmere High School, Miriam has been actively involved in the Performing Arts, including part of our successful Theatresports team, our biennial school productions, and regular Drama class performances. Miriam has also been a Drama Prefect, Court Theatre Ambassador, Coach for our junior drama students, and won our school’s “Best Actor” Award for 2016.

Billy was selected as the youngest member of the New Zealand World Championship Team this year, with whom he competed in Italy, Andorra and Australia. He has been awarded an Inpsire Foundation Award for his success and was nominated for the Zonta Regional Sportsman Award.

School’s COVE values swing into action Our school’s core values are Citizenship, Opportunity, Vibrancy and Excellence — known by the acronym COVE. As a school we actively encourage our students and staff to live out these values in our community. This was most recently displayed when our school community asked for non-perishable donations to support the people of Kaikoura after the major earthquakes. The huge volume of items donated were sorted, packed and transported to the affected area by several helicopter trips and then a van convoy to the NZ Army’s base in Culverden for distribution. This generous and kind work from our community reflects our own understanding of these

difficult times and ability to think beyond ourselves to support others in need.

All Black Israel Dagg helps students plant one of the trees in Cashmere High School’s resurrected orchard.

Orchard plan comes to fruition More than 60 years ago, before our school opened, the site was an orchard. This year students and staff organised for fruit trees to be planted on our school grounds. This new orchard will be a practical learning area for our Year 11 Agricultural class, as well as a source of fresh fruit for the school community. This proposal also has strong links with our school’s Sustainability Council’s good work (e.g. ecoDriver programme), and this year’s Year 10 Volunteer Army group. At the same time we received an invitation for three All Blacks — Israel Dagg, Lima Sopoaga, and Liam Coltman — to visit our school as part of their support of the charity CureKids, for which our student Abbey Lesson was an ambassador. So our school combined this visit to celebrate the planting of our new orchard and acknowledge Abbey Lesson who died early this year from epilepsy.

Future Problem Solvers with teacher Leigh Barker and coach Sue Williams.

Students dominate at problem-solving contest Cashmere students gained most of the individual and group awards at the New Zealand National Future Problem Solving contest in October. This demanding international competition requires students to think creatively to solve future problem scenarios or create potential future situations based on current issues and evidence. At the national competition Niamh Hollis-Locke and Robb Eastman-Densem qualified first and second in the scenario writing category, with Robb also qualifying in the individual performance problem solving section. Hannah Hudson placed second in the senior problem solving category, and our school’s senior team qualified second in the team problem solving section while our middle team also qualified in their age-group section. All those who qualify have the option of attending and representing New Zealand at the international finals in the United States.

UNBEATEN BROTHERS: James (front) and Matthew Meredith continued their unbeaten run in the Canterbury interclub competition.

Brothers help Cashmere retain second position

DEBUTANTES: The Cashmere High School girls’ first XI made its first ever appearance at last week’s NZCT secondary school girls’ finals in Lincoln. Cashmere made history earlier this year by qualifying for the six-team tournament. After being on the wrong side of results through the first three rounds of competition, Cashmere fired on all cylinders on Saturday afternoon to beat Tauranga Girls’ College in a final ball thriller. Bowling first, Cashmere restricted Tauranga to 1/131 from 20 overs. In reply, Cashmere stayed above the required run rate throughout the innings. Going into the final over, Cashmere needed just three runs for victory and used every delivery, hitting the winning run off the final ball. Wicket-keeper Isla McKenzie (who finished the tournament as the fourth highest run scorer with 161 runs) was pivotal to Cashmere’s run chase, hitting 60 runs from 52 deliveries in the nine-wicket victory. Cashmere finished the tournament tied for fifth with one victory.

CASHMERE’S men’s team has retained its hold on second spot in the ASB Premier Canterbury interclub competition with a comprehensive win against Hagley Park at Wilding Park. The opening doubles ties produced a gruelling battle between Cashmere’s Meredith brothers, James and Matthew, and the Hagley pairing of Jamie Garbett and Matthew Grant. After winning the first set 5-7, the Meredith brothers lost the second set in a tie breaker, which forced a third set. Experience proved pivotal with the Cashmere duo winning the decider 10-8. Cashmere then went on to

win three of the four singles ties. However, Matthew Meredith went down to Jamie Garbett in a gruelling two-set encounter. Results (Cashmere first) Doubles: Matt Meredith, James Meredith defeated Jamie Garbett, Matthew Grant 7-5, 6-7, (10-8) Tim Meredith, Tim McHarg defeated Matthew Parratt, Gareth van Coller 6-2, 6-4 Singles: Matthew Meredith lost to Jamie Garbett 6-7, 5-7 James Meredith defeated Matthew Grant 6-2, 6-2 Finbar Argus defeated Matthew Parrat 6-2, 7-6 Tim McHarg defeated Gareth van Coller 6-3, 6-3

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2016/2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

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

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and Registered Teacher of give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond Piano and Theory of the workplace and consider your family and your location. Music. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to29 Lancewood Drive date with replenished items, and Halswell that everyone knows where it is located.

The Running Evolution Move Better, Run Fast(er) With the running season well and truly upon us, many of us will be seeking ways to lift our game. Running programmes are popular, with a myriad of groups available for anyone wanting to get into running. With so many on offer it can be hard to know which one is the right fit for you.

Muscle People staff travelled to Sydney to learn from renowned running specialist, Paul Goss from the Running School in London, UK and have brought his programme back to The Running Centre in Christchurch. The Running Centre is lead by Grace Fursdon, who alongside her Physiotherapy degree, also has a post-graduate qualification in Sports & Exercise Medicine. Her training, experience as a competitive runner and passion for running make her a natural champion for anyone looking to improve their running. “If you’re new to running, or want some professional advice on your technique, then we recommend individual coaching sessions.” says Grace. ”We start with analysis of your running technique utilising a videoed running analysis program. When you watch your video you can clearly see where improvements and corrections will be made. Once we’ve got the basics right most clients then choose to join our RunFit group running programme which adds the fun and

motivation of running in a group” says Grace. RunFit, our group running course, is a repeating eight week program. Clients are also welcome to join RunFit without having coaching if they’re confident with their running technique. Give the friendly team at Muscle People Physiotherapy a call today 360 3606 for information on RunFit, group running programme. “I’d run a few half marathons and had just completed my first full marathon and found I was getting cramp. I wanted to run more efficiently, I wanted to get better times and I didn’t want cramp. Grace used a video program to analyse my running technique, then talked me through the faults I had and worked through them systematically each week at a coaching session. To be honest the new running technique felt a bit odd at first, but after a month it felt completely natural. I noticed a difference straight away, I’m running better, faster and no more cramp!” - Sam.

The Leisure Centre at McKenzie Lifestyle Village

Clinically proven skincare Kanu Bee Venom anti-aging skincare is a world first. It is a range of highly effective skin care using exclusive high strength New Zealand bee venom. It is the only bee venom skincare range that has been clinically studied and proven to work better than other bee venom ranges. In fact it has been shown to dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles within just five days for 90% of women tested. In one study of ten women (ages 49-66) who applied some of the most popular anti-aging products at different times, without knowing which they were using the overall favourite by far was Kanu Bee Venom Serum. 9/10 participants said they would use it again as well as recommend it to others. Bee venom stimulates the skin to dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Many notice an effect within minutes when it is applied to the face and even quicker when applied to the lips.
