St Margaret’s coxed four Canterbury champions

The St Margaret’s College coxed four of Ella Wells, Olivia Hughes, Olivia Hutton, Alice Elworthy and Lucy Davidson took out the under-19 title at the Canterbury Rowing Championships over the weekend. The regatta was called off early due to high winds at Lake Ruataniwha. However, St Margaret’s still managed to capture two gold medals. •Story, p14 PHOTO: ROWING CELEBRATION

North-west schools face wait for lower speed zones „„ By Andrew King SCHOOLS IN the north-west face a possible two to five-year wait before they will get traffic speed limits reduced. The city council has only $120,000 a year to spend implementing school zones on roads by schools. The cost covers up to four zones across the city a year. That means many schools will face long waits – including Paparoa Street, Casebrook Intermediate, Breens Intermediate, St Joseph’s, Cotswold and Mairehau Primary. A school zone is an area around a school where the speed is reduced to 40km/h during times when pupils are arriving

and leaving, any other time the usual speed limit applies. Papanui-Innes Community Board chairwoman Ali Jones said funding needs to increase to give the boards the ability to install more. “We need to look at this now as we know there will be an increase of traffic and denser housing . . . we have always talked about being a nibble council so this is something that needs to be addressed,â€? Ms Jones (left) said. The board has requested, as part of its submission on the city council’s annual plan, that funding be increased to allow it to install more school zones or extend existing ones. •Turn to page 7

Tuesday January 17 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

THE CITY council needs to urgently boost the amount of money it has to implement 40km/h zones outside schools. We reveal today the city council has a paltry $120,000 a year to put in school zones – and at about $30k a pop that means only four schools across the city a year will get them. Not good enough. If the council spent the same amount of money on school speed zones as it did on the Gormley sculptures there would be no waiting list. Pretty simple really. But on a positive note, well done St Margaret’s College for a great rowing effort at the weekend. Our photograph on the front page says it all. Winners are grinners! – Barry Clarke

Edgeware Pool group optimistic

By Andrew King IT’S BEEN a decade since the Edgeware Pool was demolished and now there is light at the end of the rebuild tunnel. A resource consent hearing has been set for February 2, and it will determine if the rebuild of the pool can go ahead. It was demolished due to deterioration in November 2006, and since then the community has been trying to get it replaced. The closure and decision sparked protest marches, public meetings and bitter clashes with councillors and former mayor Garry Moore (above). St Albans Pavilion & Pool Inc spokesman Paul Somerville said fundraising and building will be the easy part once the resource consent has been granted. “It has been a long and drawn out process, but we understand due to the earthquakes things move slowly. I’m just happy we are getting closer to being able to fundraise,” he said. It has been about three years since the consent to rebuild the pool was lodged, with Mr Somerville saying there were

quite a few requests for more information before the hearing was set. “There was a lot of back and forward with the council wanting more information,” he said. If the consent to build is granted, the city council will transfer the ownership of the land into a community trust, setup by the St Albans Pavilion & Pool Inc,

for $1. Mr Somerville said he estimated they will need about $3-$4 million to build the pool. “This will be a great community asset . . . with the new cycleway going right past the entrance to the pool, the new St Albans Community Centre and the upgrade of the St Albans shopping centre it, will be a

vibrant place,” he said. The city council has given the trust 10 years to build the pool otherwise the land will revert back to the city council. Mr Somerville was confident they will be finished within five years. “There will be a 25m outdoor pool and a smaller covered learners’ pool for a start,” Mr Somerville said.

In Brief DISHWASHER FIRE It was lucky a dishwasher which caught fire in Belfast on January 9 didn’t cause a major blaze, according to firefighters. The St Albans crew were called to a Lagan St property at about 10.45pm and found a dishwasher on fire in the kitchen. They managed to remove it from the house and extinguish the fire. A spokesman said if they hadn’t removed the dishwasher, it could have started a much larger fire. No-one was injured. ROAD REPAIRED AGAIN Road repairs on North Pde, between number 136 and Averill St, which were initially carried out in 2015, will have to be done again. Previous work to strengthen the earthquake-damaged road surface did not withstand the traffic flow along North Pde. As a result, SCIRT will repair the road over the next three weeks. CLARIFICATION Last week, Nor’West News stated that a building used as the St Albans Transitional Community Centre will be relocated to MacFarlane Park after a new facility is built. This was incorrect. The Papanui-Innes Community Board is waiting on confirmation from city council staff that they can relocate the building onto this land. The Nor’West News apologises for the error.

Firstly Geoff, congratulations on receiving your medal. I was quite astonished, it was quite a surprise. Really? Did you know that you had been nominated for it? I was told someone had nominated me at the end of October. I’m not sure who it is but I was a little embarrassed because, while I had worked hard for mountaineering and conservation and skiing, so have a hell of a lot of other people. There should be a couple of thousand other people that I know of that should deserve it just as much or more than me. How did you get started in conservation work? Well, I was always a bit of a wanderer. We lived in Upper Riccarton near the airport and we would go up around the countryside setting rabbit snares and collecting, dear I say it, terrible things like collecting bird eggs! I even

I climbed Mt Oxford when I was about 12 and when I got to high school, I met up with other like-minded kids interested in tramping and one of them, his father, was a member of the mountaineering club and we went up to the Waimakariri in the third form (year 9) and we were right up there and it was quite something. We saw these back country huts so they were places to stay and the people that owned the huts said you kids should belong to the club because you’re using our facilities and very shortly after that I joined the mountaineering club, in 1945 I think it was. Did you work in the conservation sector? No. This was purely just a hobby. I worked for medical supplies’ companies. The whole of my life was spent in the marketing of research medicines to doctors and chemists. I’ve been retired for 32 years now.

collected bird eggs from the main runway at Christchurch Airport. I’ve always been interested in birds. I started off making a birds’ egg collection, which is a terrible no-no these days, but a lot of kids did when I was at Riccarton School. I’ve always looked at the Port Hills and tried to get my brothers and sisters to take me there and they rarely would but, as I got older, I went with school friends and I could see the mountains way out to the west. We had a school trip to the West Coast and we came right through Arthur’s Pass and I saw snow up on the mountains and glaciers and thought, oh, isn’t that amazing and that I’d love to get up in that country, but I was a bit small to do that at that stage. So I had an interest from a very early age, but I’ve been a member of Forest & Bird since 1938, and I’m 90 now so 79 years. You’ve also been interested in the mountains for a long time?

leads to New Year’s honour You were a foundation member of the Craigieburn Valley Ski Club as well? I suggested to the mountaineering club that there were quite a group of young members who had their own set up and I was working in some of the sheep stations in the high country, Flockhill in particular and Mt White. In the Craigieburn Valley, they asked if I could show them how I get through that valley. I was a director for the Mt Hutt ski field for about 12 years and involved in the development right from the beginning. I was very lucky to get a trip to the Himalayas with Ed Hillary in 1954 with the New Zealand Alpine Club. That’s incredible, how did you manage to do that? They were calling for applications and I put my name forward and got on the team. What was that experience like? It was a very big challenge. We were in the Barun Valley mapping our climb and having a look at Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world. We got pretty high up that and then Ed Hillary collapsed, he was very sick and also had broken ribs

SO CLOSE: A view of Mt Makalu, which is located in the Mahalangur Himalayas, 19 km south-east of Mt Everest. Geoff Harrow nearly conquered the mountain on a climbing expedition with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1954.

because he helped one of our team out of a crevasse. He collapsed at about 22,000ft (6705m) and we had to stop and get him off the mountain. So that was the end of climbing Makalu. But the highest peak we climbed was Baruntse, which is about 23,000ft (7010m). Have you ever gone back and tried to climb Makalu again? I went back with my wife on a tramping trip. I didn’t get a second chance to climb those, but I went down to the Antarctic on a biological expedition for four

months in 1965 or 1966, and we were studying penguins and I got a trip to the South Pole. There were a lot of planes going down there and I got asked if I’d like to go. I was lucky to get on that trip. The planes were C130 Hercules and they pulled up just by the pole station and the navigator that was on the trip said this wasn’t quite the South Pole. It was about 1km away, so I walked to the South Pole alone. You must have had quite a few ‘pinch yourself moments.’ What was it like rediscovering

hutton’s shearwater birds? My wife and I were on holiday up in Kaikoura staying with Ivan Hislop. He found out that we were interested in seeing all the water birds and suggested some things that we could do. I asked if there were any mutton birds or hutton’s shearwater colonies on the Kaikoura coast and he said not on the coast but up in the mountains there were. I was astonished, there was little known about hutton’s shearwaters so I went and had a look. That was about 50 years ago and I have

been working with them ever since. You’ve mentioned your wife a bit, how did you meet? We met at Craigieburn Valley Ski Club. I told her I was one of the founders of the club and she came up and we met and we’re still together almost 60 years later. We both still ski, we skied last winter at Mt Hutt and Coronet Peak. She’s joined me and encouraged me with the work and things I’ve done. Do you have children that are interested in the outdoors too? My son Paul does a lot of skiing and a lot of hunting. But he came with me on one trip and just as we were going over a very steep waterfall, a huge rockfall came through – several hundred tonne – rocks as big as pianos came smashing through us. There were five in our party, including two 12-year-olds, one of them being Paul. Not one of us got a mark on us. I was terrified and wanted to turn round. My brother-in-law was with us and he was a pretty cool customer. He said ‘look Geoff, it’s all over and you’ve got some pretty important work to do while you’re here.’ It was a near miss but we did carry on.

Alternative access planned for vehicle storage yard finding the best fit for the community and the business. The preferred option, he said, was for the trucks to turn right from Sawyers Arms Rd onto Waimakariri Rd, but because of a traffic island, it would have to be modified. “We want this option, the community wants this option. It’s a win-win for everybody,” he said. A resource consent for the site will be applied for this week, with the preferred option of the trucks coming onto Sawyers Arms Rd then onto Waimakariri Rd. It was supposed to be applied for in July. However, Mr O’Callaghan said to get it right meant speaking with the New Zealand Transport Agency to try and get the preferred Sawyers Arms Rd option, which has taken more time. “I am hopeful they will allow us to modify the traffic island and existing roundabout to make our preferred option work,” he said. Mrs Frankish said the preferred Sawyers Arms Rd option would be a lot better. “It would be much better suited and safer for everybody,” she said.

By Andrew King A PROPOSED vehicle storage yard for Harewood has prompted fears from the community around road safety. The Car Distribution Group wants to build an 8.5ha storage yard at 711 Johns Rd to store between 2500 to 5000 vehicles. But the owner of St James Bed and Breakfast, Margaret Frankish, said to bring the number of trucks needed to transport the vehicles into an already congested road near Harewood Primary School and Harewood Playcentre was “madness.” “I have a real fear that someone is going to be killed,” she said. The development would mean between 40 to 50 trucks per day would be coming and going from the site – most of which will have to drive on to Harewood Rd past a school and kindergarten before entering the site on Waimakariri Rd. O’Callaghan Design director of engineering Ray O’Callaghan conducted the consultation for the project and said it was all about

News History of famous property developing SUCCESS: Warner and Patsy Mauger – from a North Beach garage to the captain’s table on the passenger liner QE2.

The Mauger family has owned and developed properties in the eastern suburbs for more than 60 years. Warner and Patsy Mauger bought 60 acres of land in 1990 and developed it into what is now called Northshore. And now, the Mauger family’s history has been documented in a book. By Fraser Walker-Pearce THE FAMILY responsible for many property developments in North New Brighton and Northshore can now sit down to read their own story. The Mauger family has owned property in the eastern suburbs since Ron and Jean Mauger bought a property on Rookwood Ave in 1945 for just £60. Now, Ron and Jean’s son Warner and wife Patsy own Maugers – a company with many divisions and arms including residential and commercial property and building projects across the city. Warner and Patsy were raised in North New Brighton in the 1930s and, by 1955, Warner was managing the well-known Maugers Garage on the Bower Ave and Travis Rd corner on

behalf of Ron. It was the couple’s first business venture. The garage was later sold to petroleum giants BP and a station is situated on the corner to this day. Warner’s late father Ron was a house builder and began the family’s business in 1945. He went on to purchase and build

properties in popular eastern suburbs streets such as Travis Rd, Bower Ave, Bassett St, Pages Rd, Beach Rd, Shaw Ave and Bowhill Rd. The Mauger family net has now been cast far and wide, with Warner and Patsy’s own children Philip, Timothy, Stephen and Penelope also having families of

their own. One of Philip’s sons, Jordan, was the star of television programme The Bachelor last year. Warner and Patsy live in Eastwood Rise, Northshore, one of many subdivisions that Warner started developing in the early 1990s. The family also does a great

deal of charitable work, which is not often talked about. After Warner suffered an eye injury requiring surgery in 1964, Ron and Jean donated a set of surgical equipment, along with a supporting holder designed for infants undergoing retina surgery, to the Canterbury District Health Board’s ophthalmology department a year after Warner’s surgery. Later, Warner and Patsy donated a Kowa Fundus (retina scanning) camera and committed more than $470,000 of their own money to the Canterbury Charity Hospital for a “muchneeded” expansion. In 2011, Warner and Patsy donated Olympus Endoscopic Ultrasound equipment to the Department of Gastroenterology at Christchurch Hospital after reading a newspaper article on the subject. It allowed the hospital to test bowel and liver cancer patients on-site rather the patients having to fly to Auckland for the same test. Some of the patients who, before that, had to fly to Auckland for treatment were too sick to do so, and were forced to stay put. By June of 2012, the machine had provided the specialised investigation tools to meet the needs of 160 cancer patients in the South Island. But the Maugers’ generosity did not stop there. In 2015 they knew the Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust needed more space following the earthquakes’ increased strain on the community and its health, and so injected the trust with more capital. In a charity hospital newsletter shortly after the Maugers’ donation, it stated “the Maugers’ have not only provided the hall at Innovation Park at no charge as the venue again for the Canstaff Charity Hospital Christmas Ball but have also bought a house next door to the hospital with the potential to expand the hospital’s services in the future.”

family documented in publication The property situated on Leacroft St was bought by the Warner and Patsy Mauger Charitable Foundation for more than $470,000. Canterbury Charity Hospital chairman Philip Bagshaw said the generosity and donations of the Mauger family have assisted the hospital’s running for a number of years. He said two of the new wards at the hospital will be named in honour of the Maugers. “We’re about to name two of the new buildings in their honour. One is going to be the Patsy Mauger House where we can do endoscopy, dentistry and counselling and the new one next to that will be the Warner Mauger House. That will principally house things like dental surgery and a dental laboratory for fixing and mending dentures,” he said. In 2013, Mt Pleasant author Paul Corliss was contacted by Warner in the hopes of collating the family’s history and having it printed in a book. Corliss was “more than happy to oblige” and recently completed the three-year project. He has now published the more than 500-page book, titled Mauger Milestones: The Legacy of a North Brighton Family. “Warner and Patsy fly very much under the philanthropy radar but contribute enormous sums to charities with a deliberate lack of fanfare and little publicity,” Corliss said.

HISTORY: The Hay’s dinosaur slide was part of the Christchurch Santa Parade until it was sold to the Ferrymead Heritage Park where it was chainsawed into bits. Warner Mauger paid a contractor to fix, clean and paint the slide, but when he offered it back to the city council it was rejected.

The book details the family’s rise in success from the early 1900s all the way up to present day, when Warner and Patsy opened the Maugers Property project Innovation Park in Templeton. Prior to being Innovation Park, the site was used as a school for intellectually disabled children, known as the Templeton Farm Colony. In 1967 it was disestablished, and completely closed down in the 1990s. After both the CDHB and Ngai Tahu attempted and failed to turn the land into residential properties, it was subsequently sold to the Maugers.

“We got advised by a land agent that the old Templeton Hospital and its site were up for sale, from the CDHB, through Ngai Tahu. No doubt others were also interested, and we literally only had the weekend to assess it and make our minds up – no time to do the usual homework. The boys will tell you, they weren’t happy with the time available to make the decision,” Warner said. Initially the idea for a business park was rejected by the city council, but in 2010 after a change of tack their case was heard by a commissioner, the decision was reversed and

the Maugers were allowed to continue with Innovation Park. “Innovation Park was built upon a belief that to achieve great things people need a great environment to work in . . . companies, collaborating on projects and establishing a powerful network of complementary business, while employees are inspired to explore new ideas and possibilities while enjoying a host of outstanding amenities,” Warner said. Following in the property development footsteps of his late father Ron, and after the sale of the family garage to BP, Warner bought 60 acres of land in North Beach, behind Waimairi Beach, for “about one million dollars” in 1991 and named the subsequent developments Northshore. “My mother thought I was absolutely mad as it was just swampy hills, tussock, broom, lupin and old man macrocarpa,” Warner said. The book states that from the

first truck loads of sand excavated from the site up until last year, about 250 houses have since been built and sold in the Northshore subdivision. Patsy and Warner also have a passion for keeping history alive, as can be seen with the resident green dinosaur in their garden. The fibreglass dinosaur childrens’ slide originally sat on the Farmers department store roof, but after it was gifted to the Ferrymead Heritage Park, it was chainsawed into pieces. Warner was on the board of directors at the park at the time, and thought the dino slide should be saved as it was part of the city’s history. “We took it around to the contracting workshop at Tahuna St and with the help of one of the Maugers’ workers Roger Westerink, fibre-glassed, painted and rebuilt it. When the restoration project was complete I rang parks and reserves at the city council and said ‘the historic dinosaur slide is all ready to go, what park do you want me to put it in?’ . . . the offer was rejected on health and safety grounds,” he said. The slide now sits next to Warner and Patsy’s home and is used by local children whenever the Maugers host street parties. About the author: •Paul Corliss has now written 13 books on New Zealand history, biographies and bibliographies. •Mauger Milestones: The Legacy of a North Brighton Family is his most recent publication. Corliss said he prefers writing about local unsung heroes as they are, in his eyes, a lot more interesting and often raise more eyebrows than the more famous names in communities. •In his spare time Corliss is also the secretary of the Heathcote Cricket Club.

Bishopdale sports shop owner serves rackets up to the stars By Andrew King SERENA WILLIAMS may have only played two matches at the ASB Classic – but needed her rackets restrung 28 times. Bishopdale Sports World owner Tony Ralfe was part of a team re-stringing rackets in Auckland for both the men’s and women’s tournaments at the classic. He has been a tennis racket stringer for the tournament for 12 years and was excited to see the Williams sisters and world No 20 Caroline Wozniacki. “During her short time in the tournament, [Serena] asked for 28 restrings . . . we strung four of them and, within 20 minutes, they had been returned to be done again,” he said. Wozniacki and Venus Williams had about 15 rackets restrung during the tournament. He said this was not unusual as players settle into the season and try new tensions on their rackets. Serena, ranked No 2 in the world, was ousted in the second round by American

Madison Brengle, while her sister, Venus, currently ranked 16th in the world, beat New Zealand’s Jade Lewis in the first round but experienced

pain in her right arm which forced her to pull out. “It was a shame to see some of those big names miss out on the final but great for the


public who were able to see some of the other players perform,” he said. Ralfe knows exactly what kind of racket is being used and how it has been set up. “I was interested to see Venus, for some reason, deciding to go for the smaller racket head this tournament,” he said. He said both sisters normally use a 104 sq in sized racket but Venus dropped down to a 98 sq in. “But when the rain delay came, she rushed in four brand new 104s to be strung. However, we believe she continued to use the 98s,” he said. Ralfe said women’s tournament winner, American Lauren Davis, has an additional “feather in her cap” as her first tournament win had both Williams sisters and Wozniacki in it. He had some advice for anyone thinking about getting into the restringing game. “I ask them one question: ‘What are you like getting out of bed?’ Because it is extremely long hours, but a lot of good fun.”

SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND: Alice Elworthy was part of the St Margaret’s gold medal-winning under-19 coxed four. She also teamed up with Olivia Hutton to finish second in the coxless pair oars final.

St Margaret’s win two golds in windy rowing champs ST Margaret’s College were still able to pick up two gold medals at the weather-affected Canterbury Rowing Championships. High winds over the weekend meant that time on the water at Twizel’s Lake Ruataniwha was limited, only allowing 22 of the finals to go ahead before white caps on the water stopped racing on Sunday. The event featured both secondary school and club teams, with age groups ranging from under-15 through to open class. St Margaret’s were able to secure two gold medals early on Sunday with both the under-16 and under-19

crews winning their respective finals. The under-19 coxed four of Ella Wells, Alice Elworthy, Olivia Hutton, Olivia Hughes and Lucy Davidson won in dominant fashion with a winning time of 8mins 1.17secs. They finished nearly six seconds ahead of Rangi Ruru Girls’ School in second, and eight seconds clear of Southland’s Wakatipu Rowing Club. The under-16 crew then completed the coxed four double for the school. The crew of Emma Roberts, Gaby McKellar, Harriet Kitchingman, Millie Crossland and Claudia Bethwell beat

out stiff competition from Ashburton College, winning by just under three seconds. The St Margaret’s under-19 and under-16 coxed eights recorded the fastest finish in their heats. However, the wind stopped the event finals from taking place. It also featured gold medals for St Andrew’s College in the under-19 men’s coxed four and Christchurch Boys’ High School in the under-17 coxed eight. A large chunk of the weekend’s crews will return to Lake Ruataniwha for the South Island Championships on January 28.

RUNNER-UP: Burnside High School student Amelia Garvey, 16, finished second overall at the South Australian junior amateur golf championship. The up-and-coming talent led the field after shooting an opening round of 70 at the Kooyonga Golf Club in Adelaide last week. A second round of 75 left her four shots off the lead. Garvey then recovered with a final round score of 72 to finish three shots behind championship winner Amy Chu, of Sydney. Last year, Garvey helped Burnside win the New Zealand secondary schools golf title. She also won the Australian Federal Amateur Open title in Canberra and had her first win on the Charles Tour at the Muriwai Open.

45 years

of Childcare that Cherishes Children In 1972, when Glennie Oborn opened her first centre, her commitment to parents was to keep each child Safe, Loved and Learning. And after 45 years, every Kindercare centre is still family owned, guided by the same family values, and still providing fun-filled care, that nurtures children through kindness. Knowing your child is Safe matters to parents, and to Kindercare. That’s why access to our centres is by keypad only, to control entry and exit. Protecting children in a secure environment is our priority. Love is at the heart of our centres because relationships matter. Our qualified, experienced team ensure your child will receive lots of cuddles and affection, which helps them settle, because they feel loved. Getting to know your child is a priority so we can respond to them quickly. Learning happens naturally, through play, once your baby, toddler or preschooler feels safe and loved. When they’re relaxed, they can have fun, and enjoy discovering their world. Your child will benefit from freedom to move in open spaces, exploring tactile environments for sensory learning, and challenging themselves at each developmental stage.

Home-made midday meals, and morning and afternoon snacks, ensure busy parents don’t have to worry about their child’s nutritional needs. With lots of fresh fruit and loads of vegges for lunch, your child will enjoy healthy variety that’s good for them too! Parents appreciate the value in preparing their child for school. At Kindercare, we know the difference a smooth transition makes for your preschooler. Our dynamic curriculum includes social/emotional development programs, Letterland (introducing the alphabet) and Cherry.bytes (a safe and fun introduction to technology as a learning tool). We’re privileged to be entrusted with your child’s care, and we’re here to work alongside your family. Pop in for a visit…we’re waiting to meet you and your child.

Entrust your child to the safe, lov ng care of our family-owned childcare centres Since 1972, we’ve provided more than full and part time care and education for babies, toddlers and preschoolers we’ve provided a Kindercare family. And we’re here for you, to keep your child safe, share their discoveries, guide their enquiry, ensure they’re ready for school and most of all, fill your child’s days with love and fun. Our Kindercare team have a warm welcome waiting at a centre near you…

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 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 give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Excitement high at A fresh look for Avonside Girls’ High School Shirley Boys’ High School You won’t have to look hard to see one of the new developments at Shirley Boys’ High School in 2017 – it will be on almost every student you see.

Principal Sue Hume.

2017 will be a year of progress for the Avonside Girls’ High School whanau. Not only will the design of their state-ofthe-art new campus alongside Shirley Boys’ be revealed, their BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) scheme is being increased to include all of the Year 9 cohort, a new uniform is in the pipeline and the school is adopting a new style of form class to lend greater support to students.

Sue Hume says this is part of Avonside’s drive to increase student wellbeing and support. “Avonside’s core focus is not just on educating but empowering girls to be the best they can be. You can’t lift students to their highest levels of achievement unless you have a supportive atmosphere.”

A new uniform is being rolled out… so it’s out with the grey shorts and walk socks and in with a sleek new navy and light blue kit. Along with the new look, Shirley Boys’ is continuing to show it’s at the forefront of education with several new initiatives, including a unique new form class, the roll out of a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) system across the whole school and the introduction of a new teaching model. “All of our teachers will be given the chance to co-teach in 2017 and 2018. That will see two teachers working with two classes of students at the same time” says Headmaster John Laurenson.

“It’s a collaborative approach that we trialed in 2016. The feedback was very positive – teachers inspired each other and the students liked being able to experience a range of teaching styles.” The new form class will have a strong emphasis on tikanga and te reo Māori, embracing Maori principles such as manaakitanga (exercising compassion and empathy), thus providing a respectful environment for focused mentoring and raising student achievement. Priority for the new class will be given to students who are engaged in Māori cultural pursuits, studying te reo or who have come bilingual or immersion units. For more information see

Hornby High School We will start 2017 with a bang, quite literally, as we get set for the first demolitions that precede our rebuild. First to go are the administration block, and the library building, due to come down in March. Contractors then begin the build for the first part of the brand new Hornby High School with our Hauora, administration, learning commons and specialist learning spaces that cover sciences, creative arts, and technologies. The work that goes on inside our buildings is also changing with two ongoing developments. We are asking all students to have Chromebooks available during their school day. The evidence for their significant impact on learning is growing, all of this work underpinned with our

learning methodology of ‘Learn Create Share’ (supported by the Manaiakalani Outreach Programme) which we share with our partnership schools in our Uru Manuka cluster. This pedagogy develops deeper learning and digital fluency, both essential in our modern era. We are also developing student and staff abilities to cause learning using project based learning. PBL is well known to improve student engagement and deeper learning, and following successful trials in 2016 is set to grow in use this year. This all forms a part of the backdrop to our journey towards the school’s exciting vision ‘A centre of creative excellence’. Make sure that you are a part of this exciting future focussed journey.

The Board of Governors bought the old Kokiri school building and some 5 acres of land in August 1973. Soon after the purchase a bunkroom was built and a dedicated education programme was developed with the emphasis on inter personal skills. The first class groups visited Kokiri in November 1974, 40 years ago.

The Year 9 and 10 programmes are different, and complement each other in developing self-confidence, team work and leadership skills in an outdoor education context facilitated by the experienced instructors.

South New Brighton School’s Got Talent

Villa Maria College

Girls grom Villa Maria College working on their Science project.

Villa Maria College is a state integrated Catholic secondary school for girls in Years 7 – 13. The foundation for everything we do is our Catholic faith, which we express through our Mercy charism. Dance Crew, from left to right: Morgan Bailey, Ella Timbrell, Molly Chalmers and Chloe Timbrell.

One of the great things about our school is that it is a full primary (Year 1-8). This means that our students can stay with the same group of friends and teachers until high school and get to take on a lot of areas of responsibility around the school. This year we had a large group of Year 8 Prefects who have buddied up with new entrants, visited our local kindergarten, led assemblies, arranged a staff vs. Year 8’s basketball tournament and worked in the office at lunchtimes to give our hardworking office staff a break. We also have so many talented students at SNBS! For the second year in a row, our school has held an SNBS’s Got Talent Show to showcase this talent. This is another one of the things that our Prefect group has helped to organise. 69 of our Year 5-8 students gave up their morning teas and lunchtimes to audition for their place in the Semi Finals. There were Solo and Group categories of Singing, Dance, Entertainment and Instrumental. All of this could not have happened without our dedicated teachers, who gave up their valuable time to judge and decide who would make it through to the finals. Leading into the final, the competition was fierce. The 8 finalists performed stunningly in front of the whole school at our Whanau Hui. It was an intensely difficult decision for our judges, Tom and Holly from Original

Scripts Theatre School. They decided that the overall winner was ‘Dance Crew’, dancing to “It’s the Hard Knock Life” from the musical Annie, and they won a $10 subway voucher (a special thanks to Subway Ferrymead for donating these) and Miss Gill, our Deputy Principal and organiser of SNBS’s Got Talent, took them out for lunch. Every participant was awarded a certificate at our school Whanau Hui.

We aim to offer spiritual formation and pastoral care in the tradition of Catherine McAuley, and the Sisters of Mercy who founded the College in 1918.

Villa Maria College offers many sporting opportunities, our Sports Director coordinates over 30 sports for girls to choose from. It’s not surprising that we have extremely high participation levels along with impressive regional and national successes!

Our Mission is to: “Empower each young woman to determine her potential, live Gospel values, confidently embrace lifelong learning and as a Mercy woman be inspired to make a difference”.

The cultural life of the College is also filled with extensive musical and choral opportunities along with bi-annual Productions and Stage Challenge entries.

We have a proud academic history, annually achieving academic results which are among the best in the country. Written by Grace Ward, Year 8 student and Students set high goals and the College supports them in striving for excellence. SNBS Prefect

Make wise choices for holiday fun Don’t spend your holiday recuperating from a preventable accident. The double whammy of the holiday and summer seasons are in full swing. Accidents lead the way for ambulance rides and healing time. An accident is just that. An event that happens from a series of events, causing bodily harm. In most cases those events could have been prevented with a little more thought behind the decision. At Physiotherapy Associates, located at 86 Wainoni Rd, Wainoni, they pride themselves in assisting the healing process and they are strong advocates in that awareness and assessment are the key to prevention. “We stress to our clients, the following; always have a first aid kit in the car, on the boat, or at your location and do a first aid course. Muscle and ligament strains and sprains are some of the most common accident results.” Says head physiotherapist Richard.

Alcohol consumption is one of the biggest contributors to any accident. As people mature in many cases they acquire that, “invisible, superhero syndrome” where they feel they can do actions with the same buoyancy as when they were younger. In many instances this leads to the result of a fall, tweak or miscalculate in the action and an injury incurs.” Richard advises, “If there is severe pain, deformity or inability to bear weight seek medical help or call 111 immediately. If soft tissue pain does not improve by the order of about 50% within 48 hours, visit your GP, afterhours or your local physiotherapist.” Fun is what life is all about. Creating memories and enjoying yourself. Just remember when water-skiing, swimming, playing cricket, touch, tramping, skateboarding, running, biking, walking, or any physical activity to assess the situation, look at the potential outcome and make that choice to protect yourself and
