New high school ruled out „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding HALSWELL AND Wigram will not get a high school in the next 20 years in spite of a boom in the population. The Ministry of Education has told Western News it has no plans for a high school in spite of economic development agency Infometrics saying one is needed. Statistics released by Infometrics showed the

population in the south-west of the city was expected to increase by 85 per cent over the next seven years. Due to the population explosion, it said a high school needed in the area at some stage over the next seven years. But the MoE has masterplanned for an extra 1950 high school spaces at existing schools in the Halswell and Wigram

areas for the next 20 years. MoE’s sector enablement and support Kim Shannon said the plan allows for Hillmorton and Hornby High schools to meet predicted growth in this area. She said the south-west area in the report includes parts of the Selwyn District which are served by Darfield High School, Lincoln High School and the soon to open Rolleston College.

Hillmorton High which is currently sitting at 717 students, has been master planned for 2000 students in the future. Redevelopment at the school will allow for 1000 students. Hillmorton High principal Ann Brokenshire said she did not agree with Infometrics that a new high school was needed. She said while master plan is a long way away in the future, the

school will be very different if it reaches 2000 students. “I know there are some negative perceptions in the Halswell area and we have got to really work so that those people are involved in this,â€? she said. Meanwhile Hornby High’s rebuild is master planned for the school to grow to 1300 students in the future. •Turn to page 7

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

Burglaries soar in west

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding and Gabrielle Stuart NEW DATA shows a surge in burglaries in the south-west of the city over the past year. Figures released by police show numbers in Wigram are up from 95 to 109, in Hornby up from 77 to 113 and in Sockburn up from 96 to 136. It said 6407 burglaries were reported over the last 12 months – 13 per cent up from the 5659 reported the year before. Halswell Community Project chairwoman Chrys Horn (left) said a lot of people in the area had reported burglaries around September, but they seemed to have dropped off as the people believed to be responsible had been caught. She said she suspected the suburb was getting more burglaries because of the population growth. Ms Horn said another issue was the burglary of houses under construction. Western News learnt the Hornby Community Patrol had been approached by property developer Enterprise Homes

to increase their patrols in Broomfield while six homes are developed in Vanguard Drive. This was due to youths knocking fences down and stealing building tools making neighbours near by anxious. Senior Sergeant Peter Stills

said in the Hornby area there were 18 burglaries last week which is below the weekly average. But he said the next week could be completely different and one burglary was one too many. “We take it seriously. Burgla-

ries are a horrible crime if you have been a victim of burglary, and I have, it is horrible and it makes you feel unsafe in your own home,” he said. In June, a national-level requirement was established for police staff to attend all home burglary calls. Senior Sergeant Stills said the police are hunting down every lead that exists. “We had a case out recently in Rolleston where there had been a series of burglaries, there was no link between them but police returned to one of the addresses just to do a security check and lo and behold located the offender,” he said. The offender was then chased by the police on foot and caught. The new figures also showed the worst day for burglaries in Christchurch was Monday. They were more common during the day than night, with early afternoon between 2-3pm the most common time. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Have you noticed more burglaries in the southwest?

They were three of 11 House of Travel offices to take part in the House of Travel Triathlon Festival, which aimed to raise money for the hospice. Forty staff were involved, taking part in the race as well as being marshals and lending their support by manning the community barbecue to feed the competitors. There were 382 people who took part in the race held at Pegasus Lake on November 27.

Your Local Views Results showing from rebuild effort Councillor Vicki Buck writes about the latest updates in the western area and central city It’s great to see the effort people everywhere are putting in to the rebuild of the city. Whether it’s your house, helping with the school, your business, or so many community groups who have had to shift and reform in some way. It’s brilliant to be able to see how much everyone is doing in the city. It was fantastic to see the restored Mona Vale Homestead open this week, with fastidiously restored bricks and masonry and so much more, very interesting features that look even better than before. It’s due to open for food as the Mona Vale Pantry, and new “high teas” as well, on the December 12. The gatehouse looks on schedule for about February. Also brilliant to see more and more opening in the Christchurch Arts Centre. There’s the new

i-Site visitors sense now and new food outlets to join Rutherford’s Den, the North Quad and the new Bunsen Restaurant/Cafe . And there are shops, a big variety of them, opening in Cashel Mall Re:Start which is creating a whole different vibe there. So we know the city will look quite different next year as more buildings open. The roadworks in Riccarton Rd will be there for a while because a part from the traffic lights replacing the roundabout and the bus lanes, there is major pipework going on. Those pipes are definitely due for replacement so it will be good to have it done. And the one that you are still waiting on, but which will likely be out in time for my next column is the Hornby Library and Service Centre and the SouthWest Leisure Centre in Hornby.

between Clyde Rd and the former Bupa St Nicholas care home site, should have parking restrictions, in order for vehicles not to impede the tranquillity and private space for nearby residents. It is imperative also that instigation of these restrictions make allowance for preferential parking for those residents requiring it. The on-going staff report and consultation with residents over this issue is vital as is amalgamation between the city council, Canterbury University

A reader responds to Western News’ article on the potential for parking restrictions to be put in place on Kirkwood Ave Gary Knight – The transition of the Bupa Nicholas care home into a student hostel while commendable should encompass certain factors. The students utilising this complex will obviously require car parking. The stretch of road adjacent to this venue,  namely Kirkwood Ave

and the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton community board over this community issue. Amalgamation between these entities and embracing of the criteria of the city council Long Term Plan 2015-2025 to operate grants as a contributory factor towards community building is the catalyst for instigation of adequate on-site student car parking within the renovated Bupa street facility. The cost of this is surely feasible within projected council budgeting.

Move bins away from buildings 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 locked compounds or even merely placing the skip as

Fire risk management officer Mark Thomas writes about people lighting fires with no regard to the consequences WITHOUT GOING into details just in case it encourages those who 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.

far from your building as possible. The heartache, the clean-up, 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 sound right through the building and roust everybody out.  So lighting incense in your room is not recommended.   Particularly just on midnight when most are asleep.

Road to be fixed, finally „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AFTER A long road of having repairs put on the backburner, Bradshaw Tce residents will finally be getting their wastewater pipes fixed. The residents in the Riccarton street have been putting up with sewage leakages, flooding issues and deteriorating road conditions. A tender has been put out by the city council to renew the sewer and water supply pipes after the Christmas holiday break. But road reconstruction of the street is not set in the Long Term Plan to get underway until 2018-2019. Residents first lobbied with the then Riccarton-Wigram Community Board to have the road upgraded in 2010 which was approved. The project was to replace all existing kerb and dish channel. Following the February 22, 2011, earthquake, the repairs were put on hold leaving

residents to wait for six years. City council’s head of three waters and waste John Mackie said the reason the wastewater repairs were put on hold was because there was worse earthquake damage in the eastern suburbs. But he said increased population in the Riccarton area post-earthquake and increased infiltration from cracks in pipes had put more strain on the network. The condition of the wastewater pipes had decreased since the earthquake with the main issues being the cracks in the pipes. Resident Helen Spear said it will be good if the city council gets on with the repairs as the street is probably the roughest in the Riccarton area. “In June, about 18 months ago when there was a lot of flooding, there was sewage that was coming up the street,” she said. “Little bits of toilet paper and suspicious looking things.”

School site future undecided No plan „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding BUILDINGS ON the former Branston Intermediate site have been demolished to make way for the rebuild of South Hornby School. But what will happen to the old site is still yet to be determined. South Hornby School will shift to the former Branston Intermediate site on Amyes Rd in 2018, leaving the current site on Shands Rd vacant. Following the shift, the Ministry of Education will make an assessment to decide whether the site is required for education purposes. MoE’s head of education infrastructure service Jerome Sheppard said before any school is disposed, they need to make sure local schools in the area have the existing capacity for growth. “If it is not required, it will be declared surplus to education requirements and Land Information New Zealand will put the property through the disposal process set out under the Public Works Act 1981,” he said. The process for disposing the land is done under the act in

for new school

UNCERTAIN: The future of the current South Hornby School site is yet to be decided by the Ministry of Education. While designs for how the new school will look when it shifts to the former Branston Intermediate site have been released.

four stages. The first stage is to determine if the land is needed for other public works before determining if the land needs to be offered back to the person the Crown originally purchased from. The land will then be offered to Maori under a Treaty claim settlement and held for a future settlement. The final stage will be to sell the land to the open market. Mr Sheppard said money from surplus school property sales is reinvested into the school network. South Hornby School principal Simon Moriarty said he

had not thought about what he would like to see happen to the old school site. He said he is focusing on the future of the move and it was up to the MoE. Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board member Natalie Bryden said while she hadn’t thought about the site, it could be a good place for the new Hornby service centre. Designs revealed by the MoE show the new school will be one large single building connecting 13 learning spaces, a multipurpose space and administration block. “In terms of acoustic levels,

lighting and heat, they are a much better environment for the teachers and kids,” Mr Moriarty said. He said while the school’s current buildings are well-maintained, they are getting tired. About 275 students will be shifting to the new $10 million school with construction expected to be completed late next year. The school is expected to cater for up to 400 students.

THE RUSSLEY VILLAGE

•From page 1 Current redevelopment at the school will allow for 800 students. Hornby High principal Robin Sutton said the MoE needed to be cautious of not overbuilding. He said due to the school having high-quality relationships between staff and students, he personally would not like to see the school grow bigger than 1300 students. The Infometrics report also said growth in the Halswell area was undeserved in a range of services including retail, social and community amenities. Western News reported recently six new subdivisions and two new primary schools are to be developed in Halswell to cope with the population expansion.

Entries are now open for the 43rd running of the event. In the past, the 14km event (starting at Centennial Park) has been seen as for runners only, but with the introduction of the very popular Sport Canterbury 6km event (starting at Hansen Park), this fun run is really about movement, whether it be running, jogging or walking. Both events finish at Ferrymead playing fields, which will be full of family entertainment and prizes. The fun run is also free to participants under 10-years-old.

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 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.

Fundraiser earns $130,000 for Starship’s STARSHIP’S national air ambulance service has been given more than $130,000 after a fundraiser tea party held at Mona Vale. It was the second year the Christchurch Diamonds and Stars Tea Party has taken place, an event organised by the Friends of Starship. A marquee was set up on the Iris Lawn and 240 guests attended on November 27. Silent and live auctions were held, with items such as Bruce Springsteen tickets, a return trip

to Honolulu for two plus five nights of accommodation, and swimming lessons up for grabs. Phil McGoldrick was the auctioneer, while Jenny Burtt Florist owner Dale Brown donated the orchid centrepieces on the tables that were later auctioned off. The air ambulance service flies medical experts to children in life-threatening emergencies around the country, and they treat the children in the aircraft on the way to Starship. Sam and Connor Knowles and Vanessa Pardoe were the guest

family at the event, who know all too well the importance of the service. Six-year-old Connor was hit by a car in May and was flown in the air ambulance to Starship with a broken pelvis, a brain bleed and the ligaments holding his head onto his back bone were torn. He was in a coma for 10 days and spent the next two weeks at Starship. The tea party was hosted by Friends of Starship co-chairwomen Charlotte Smulders and Gina Satterthwaite, while radio and television personality Mike Puru was the MC. Mrs Smulders said the money raised was crucial for the service. “It’s an essential service to fly our sick and injured children from the South Island, receiving critical and world class care as they fly. The care on board can make the difference between life and death.” Last year, 432 children were admitted to Starship from the South Island – more than one each day. The Starship Foundation raises $1.5 million each year to fund the air ambulance. Moet & Chandon provided the champagne for the tea party, while CoLab, Clive Barrington Construction, Continental and EY were the event sponsors.

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

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

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-

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

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.

Building a better planet VILLA MARIA College students have been getting their hands dirty in a bid to address waste issues in the community. Year 7 and 8 girls were set the challenge of addressing a waste issue in the community of their choice as part of a social studies project.  Placing compost bins around the school to reduce food waste, exploring wrapper-free food ideas and an intermediate “wrapperfree” lunch were some of the eco-friendly initiatives set up from the project.  The students have been

studying waste and how it affects the environment both on a national and international scale. The students have even established a partnership with the Soft Plastics Recycling programme at Ilam New World. A scheme has been set up where plastics are collected by the school and taken down to New World to be recycled each week.  The soft plastics recycling is a national initiative where shoppers can take their used soft plastic bags back to supermarkets and retail premises.

Shops bursting with festive gift ideas The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking fillers as well as the Christmas treats for the table is so easy at our city’s malls and shopping centres, where the shops are bursting with festive merchandise. Every woman likes to receive bodypampering gifts, and there is a huge selection of these priced to suit all budgets at the many pharmacies and gift shops around the city. Perfume is another favourite and again there is a wide selection to choose from, ranging from exciting new releases to the well-known fragrances that have stood the test of time. Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories, homewares and decor items – there’s no end to the ideas for the women on the list. The men are equally well catered for, from the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends, to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands and dads. Choose from clothing, books, tools, personal grooming items and gadgets to put a smile on their face on Christmas morning. Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families more joy than seeing the excitement of the children opening their presents. Whether they are delivered by Santa or snuck under the tree by mum and dad, the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and pretty dresses currently filling the shops will bring squeals of sheer happiness from the smallest family members. The tweens and teens usually have their own ideas about what they want for Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a wide range of retailers are the perfect way to please.

“Many people have heard of what is known as the ‘Christmas story’ and we are wanting to join with the local community and remember that at this time of year but also look at what else there is to the story,” says church elder Damon Hurley. Music will also be a big part of the event with solos, choirs and the whole congregation joining with singing some well-known hymns. This event is one of a number of community projects run by the local church, located just down the road from Canterbury University. Pr Gordon Gossett, the church’s local pastor, has aimed to increase the church’s presence and benefit in the community this year, and it is getting results. “People often perceive a barrier to interacting with a church and so as we reach out to them and show the resources and friendship we offer, we are able to connect with people and the community. It’s a matter of being there where the people are.” “There are so many people hurting, searching for meaning or just feeling disconnected in the community and university” says Hurley, who is also a youth leader for the church. “Our aim is to be available and reach these people. Students in particular have their own challenges, they can feel very alone being away from family and home. We have been able to offer that for them with our fellowship groups, social events and food – students love having some food provided.” The church has also recently participated in the Christchurch City Council’s Neighbourhood week project by having an ‘open home’ event to showcase some of the services they offer. This included free health checks, free home-cooked health food, books and resources on mental, physical and spiritual health as well as showing other services they offer such as Firstlight and Hope TV Channels on Freeview.

Creative wrapping adds intrigue to gifts Most of the malls offer a free gift-wrapping service, which is a great help at this busy time, but for those who prefer to wrap their own here are a few ideas to make gifts look unique and exciting.

The first tip to make the job easier and the wrapping look more professional is to do the task on a flat surface – a table or a hard floor. Recycling has become an important aspect of modern-day life, and that’s easy to do with gift-wrapping. For example, those brown paper bags you have put aside are ideal, especially for odd-shaped gifts. To give them a Christmassy look, you could glue on those left-over pieces of wrapping paper from last year that are too small to use, and add a candy cane or chocolate with the gift tag. Another quirky idea is to wrap your gifts in fabric. You could cut up a garment you no longer wear, or look out those left over pieces from curtains or clothing you have made. Tie them up with fabric ribbon to complete the look.

Using newspaper or cardboard boxes as wrapping is another recycling idea, and you could add a festive look by tying them with Christmas ribbon. For long-shaped gifts, why not wrap them to look like a Christmas cracker. Place a tube of cardboard around the item, then put it inside a sheet of wrapping paper, secure it with tape then scrunch up the ends like a cracker and tie them off with coloured ribbon. Kitchen foil is another wrapping option. Being silver and shiny it already has a festive look, which you could enhance with bright-coloured ribbon. Make a container, such as a jar, tin or tray one part of the gift. Complete it with chocolates, nuts or biscuits and wrap the gift in clear cellophane tied with brightcoloured ribbon.

SPORTS

CHAMPIONS: The Villa Maria 4x400m relay team of Olivia Burnham, Tegan Duffy, Georgia Stroud and Jessie Anderson won the national senior girls’ title on the weekend.

Villa Maria’s relay success LEGENDARY BUILD UP: Being clean bowled around your legs isn’t the best feeling in the world. However, if it’s at the hands of Richie McCaw (batting above), the blow may be softened somewhat. Christchurch Boys’ High School first XI captain Ben Donkers knows that feeling after being bowled around his legs by McCaw during a match against The Willows Cricket Club. Batting first, CBHS scored 219 before restricting The Willows to 163, winning by 56 runs. CBHS used the game as a build-up to the Secondary School Boys’ First XI Cup finals, which are currently taking place in Lincoln this week. CBHS qualified for the top-six national tournament by defeating St Andrew’s College in the Canterbury regional final last month and are going for their fourth title.

AFTER breaking a Canterbury schools record in March, the Villa Maria College 4x400m senior relay team have now gone one better by winning the national title. The team of Olivia Burnham, Tegan Duffy, Georgia Stroud and

Jessie Anderson took out the New Zealand secondary schools senior girls’ 4x400m relay in Auckland. They finished in a time of 4m 02.41s, more than two seconds ahead of St Andrew’s College in second place. The win is just the start

of what will be a busy fortnight for 18-year-old Anderson. She will join the Black Sticks this week ahead of the team’s five-match series against Malaysia, where she is expected to make her international debut.

Halswell get big win in final game of the season HALSWELL beat Addington in convincing fashion in its final one-day cricket match of the season at Halswell Domain on Saturday. After winning the toss and batting first, Addington were immediately on the

back foot with Halswell bowler Geoff Barclay taking a wicket with the first ball of the match. Barclay had great seam movement and would go on to finish with superb figures of 2-6 from nine overs. Addington limped through

to 110 with Halswell’s bowlers having a good day. Mike Chatterton took 3-26 and Thomas McCardle finished with 3-29. Halswell made a positive start to its innings, with Barclay also staring with the bat.

He hit a quick-fire 46 from 21 balls, including four huge sixes in one over. Ankit Jassal, who was promoted into the Halswell senior side after showing some good form in the club’s second side, scored 43 not out. Halswell scored the winning runs in 17

overs for the loss of two wickets. With the round-robin now over, Halswell did not qualify for the one-day finals. Next week, however, Halswell will host Southern Districts in the final two-day game before the Christmas break.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING

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

Go along to the sitting room in the library for a relaxing crafternoon. Take along your knitting, crochet, stitching or any other handcraft and enjoy the company of others. Share skills and be inspired in a friendly, relaxing environment. Don’t forget to bring your library card to borrow from a fabulous range of craft books. Te Hāpua Halswell Centre, 341 Halswell Rd

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 Registered Teacher of suit your needs.

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. Some people feel a tingling as it starts to work almost immediately. Regular use may help stimulate collagen production in the skin.
